While watching birds flying in the air, a random thought appeared in my mind that if any other object is held at such height and then released, it would fall. Or in other words, the gravity of the earth will exert a force on it and will pull that object towards the earth, and more the weight of that object more gravitational force will be applied.
Keeping in mind that Birds also have some weight, but amazingly they don’t fall from such heights, and in case of eagles the height is way more than that, but they don’t seem to fall, but if we place anything at such height it will reach ground within few minutes.
Now another thought arises in my mind, that there must be something/someone holding them at such heights without any mistake and error of them falling, and also if not then they should also drop like other objects and living beings, and the One holding them up should also be the One who created such complex creature at first place because who knows about creation better than the Creator Himself.
What I then found that the Qur’an states such fantastic Miracle splendidly and beautifully:
Do they not see the birds above them with wings outspread and [sometimes] folded in? None holds them [aloft] except the Most Merciful.
Indeed He is, of all things, Seeing.
[Qur’an: Chapter # 67 (Surah Al-Mulk: The Sovereignty) Verse # 19]
Indeed, Allah Almighty is the creator of the universe and everything in it, and He is the One who Has power and control over everything.
[And] who created seven heavens in layers. You do not see in the creation of the Most Merciful any inconsistency. So return [your] vision [to the sky]; do you see any breaks? Then return [your] vision twice again. [Your] vision will return to you humbled while it is fatigued.
[Qur’an: Chapter # 67 (Surah Al-Mulk: The Sovereignty) Verse # 3-4]
