Fabi-ayyi aala-I Rabbikum tukathibaan
(So, Oh jinn and mankind) Which of the favours of your Rabb (Lord) will you then deny?
Surah Rahman 55:13
Here are some favours to think about.
Our heart beats around 100 00 times every day.
Our blood is on a 60 000 mile journey.
Our eyes can distinguish up to one million colour surfaces and take in more information than the largest telescope known to man.
Our lungs inhale over two million litres of air every day.
Our hearing is so sensitive it can distinguish between hundreds of thousands of different sounds.
Our sense of touch is more refined than any device ever made. When we touch something we send a message to our brain at 124 mph.
Our brain is more complex than the most powerful computer and has over 100 billion nerve cells.
We get 100 billion new reds cells every day.
We have over 600 muscles. We exercise at least 30 muscles when we smile.
Our bodies are about 70% water.
Our noses are our personal air-conditioning system. It warms cooled air, cools hot air and filters impurities.
In one square inch of our hand we have nine feet of blood vessels, 600 pain sensors, 9000 nerve endings, 36 heat sensors and 75 pressure sensors.
We have copper, zinc, cobalt, calcium, manganese, phosphates, nickel and silicon in our bodies.
