So blessed be Allah, the best to create!


"So blessed be Allah, the best to create!" 
- Quran 23:14

The world's oceans are filled with brilliant colours.

Attracting attention is an essential part of winning a mate.

Unfortunately this small Japanese puffer fish is dull, almost to the point of invisibility.

 But - to compensate - he is probably natures greatest artist. To grab a females attention, he creates something that almost defies belief.

His only tools are his fins and the plan of mathematical perfection in his head. He plows the sand, breaking it up into the finest of particles.

These shells aren't just rubbish to be removed; 

he uses them to decorate the ridges of his construction. 

He must work 24 hours a day for a week or the current will destroy its [complex and perfect] construction.

And his master-piece is complete...

If this doesn't get him noticed, nothing will.


Next time someone calls you a "fish brain", take it as a compliment!

"So blessed be Allah, the best to create!" 
- Quran 23:14

"On earth there are signs for those with sure faith;
and in yourselves too, 
do you not see?"
- Quran 51:20-21
