  Assalam alaikum,
    Sometimes we complain about cost of food or its availability, but hardly reflect on its origin, meaning or significance and its bearing on sustaining human existance, Nations political fortunes and future of mankind. In this regards, let us reflect for a moment what Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala says in verses 24-32 of Surat Abasa (chapter 80) of the Holy Qur'an:--
 
                     ''Let man, then, consider {the sources of} his food:
                       {how it is} that We pour down water, pouring it
                       down abundantly; and then We cleave the earth
                       {with new growth}, cleaving it asunder, and thereupon
                        We cause grain to grow out of it, and vines and edible
                        plants, and olive trees and date-palms, and gardens
                        dense with foliage, and fruits and herbage, for you and
                        your animals to enjoy''.
 In these Ayats we appreciate the story of food...the provision of which is carefully planned by the Hand which created man. Man plays no role in any of its stages, even the seeds and grains he casts on the earth are not of his making but that of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.
