For Us To Think
(What can we learn from the
Allah has created many
things that we can think
about & one of these
things is the Animal World
which is really strange &
an amazing world.
From this world we can
benefit many things if we
think little bit deeply in the
variety kinds of animals.
Allah Says, "Observe what is in the heavens and earth."
But of no avail will be signs or warners to a people who do
Allah Says: “And the grazing livestock He has created for
you; in them is warmth and [numerous] benefits, and
from them you eat, And for you in them is [the enjoyment
of] beauty when you bring them in [for the evening] and
when you send them out [to pasture], And they carry your
loads to a land you could not have reached except with
difficulty to yourselves. Indeed, your Lord is Kind and
Merciful, And [He created] the horses, mules and donkeys
for you to ride and [as] adornment. And He creates that
which you do not know”
Allah Says: “And indeed, for you in livestock is a lesson.
We give you drink from that which is in their bellies, and
for you in them are numerous benefits, and from them
The idea of this
presentation is to
can learn from some
Animals & Birds
This small creature has many positive
Allah has called one whole “Surah” in Quran
with the name of this creature.
Here are some of the positive characteristics
which we can learn from Ant:
The first characteristic which can be noticed is Team
Ants are very known by their strong team work which
results in achieving their goals.
Any one who wants to be positive in his life should
learn how to work & participate positively in any
Successful Team Work means Success in life.
Some people might get surprised when they hear
this characteristic as they might think that this
characteristic is related to human only.
Ant are a very strong example of excellent planning
and this is well shown when they plan in summer to
store food for winter & subsequently they work for
Planning is essential way for success in life. Any one
who reads about the life of famous people realize
that that they have planned their work by setting
clear targets & then start working on that plan.
Many people nowadays don‟t plan for their
personal life unfortunately. One famous quote says
“If you fail to plan, you will plan to fail”.
If we need to be positive, we should target positive
planning in our life.
One important characteristic of the Ant is its
seriousness. You can notice that every ant is
always moving around performing some task.
There is no ant which is not working. Any Ant
seen not moving considered as abnormal.
Positive & success people are always serious in
their life. Their time is very valuable so that they
try to invest each second of it in something
The result of this seriousness will be positive
production in any field.
Wasting time in silly things will not benefit anyone
either the person or the society.
This is famous characteristic for any Ant.
Anyone notice Ant world shall see how
Ants are facing many challenges in their
life either when searching for foods or
taking these foods to their home.
The beauty thing is that Ant will never
give up for any challenge faced.
If we want to be success in our life, we
should always challenge the challenges we
Our world is full of challenges & we have
two choice towards them, either face
them or leave them to defeat us.
The choice is with us always.
This characteristic is known also for
Ants. They initiate always for searching
foods & whenever they found it, they are
informing others to come & take it to
Positive Initiative is important factor for
any success person & as it said that “Big
projects started with initiative from
someone”. It is always nice to be that
Initiative will reflect on societies
development & will lead to more
productivity & excellence.
This is another insect which Allah has
called one whole “Surah” in Quran with
name of it.
The characteristics of a bee is very close
to Ants, so we are going to list some other
Benefit for others
This characteristic is reflected by the production of
honey which has many benefits to people.
This characteristic is very important for those who
want to be positive since positive person will seek
always for benefit of others by providing beneficial
things to them like ethics, values and even other
Each bee has specific task to perform
either in its cell or outside. They are
very organized & all tasks all achieved.
Any one who wants to be positive should
be organized in his life so he Succeeds&
achieves his targets.
Spider is one of the insects that
people are afraid of, but it has a very
When we notice spider‟s web, we can see
how perfect it is.
Anyone who wants to be positive must try
to be perfect as much as he can in all his
work & tasks.
By achieving perfection, society shall be
There is also one negative
characteristic we can notice from
Allah in the holy Qur‟an stated that “The
weakest home is the spider home”.
The person who wants to be positive must
take care about his home & his family
since the weakness of family & homes
means weakness of the society.
Family should be always top priority for
any person; otherwise, it will be
destroyed easily like what happens to
spider home which means loosing efforts
& facing problems & difficulties in life.
This insect is well known with
production of silk.
We can benefit from it the following
Although the this warm is very small, it
produces something which is very
beneficial to human beings.
This show us clearly that age, size or sex
is not important in order to be success.
The important thing is how to use our
abilities in the right way.
When we see this insect, we
can immediately know what
characteristic we can benefit
The person who wants to be positive should care
about his appearance and clothes in order to be
accepted by others. There is no doubt that the
person who is nice and clean will be more
acceptable than the person who doesn‟t care about
his appearance. The best Example for us is our
prophet peace be upon him who was taking care
always about his appearance and his clothes, so
other people liked him much more.
Most humans hate flies, because
they have a lot of negative
characteristics such as:
Living on dirt
Flies often found to be living on dirt and whenever
there is a wastebasket, we can see that there are flies.
People concerns reflect their personalities. Whenever
concerns are high & serious, we can expect excellent
results & products. While if concerns are like flies,
silly & fiddling, no development in any important field
can be expected.
One of the major differences between developed
countries & others is the concerns of its people.
As for flies, people do not like
mosquitoes for many reasons,
including this negative characteristic :
Mosquito hurt others and cause them pain and
sometimes cause for them some diseases, so people
always tries to get rid of them.
This characteristic is very bad & causes people to
hate the person who holds this characteristic,
therefore the person who wants to be positive
should always be away from this characteristic,
instead, he should seek to help others and to
It is called “Ship of the desert” and it
was previously the main mean for
arabs in their mobility, especially in
long-distance. We can benefit some
positive characteristic from camel like:
The camel is very famous with this characteristic. It
carries people & luggage for long distances without
complaining & they perform its tasks excellently.
positive person in this life faces a lot of obstacles and
his path is full of harms, therefore he should be
patient in his life and the result will be success in life
When we see the camel, we notice
that its head is always high &
therefore, it has a clear vision always.
Positive people need to have long &
clear vision in their live in order to be
effective & success.
Without clear vision, mess is expected
Although cheetah is less famous
than lion & tiger, but it has
important characteristic that
we can benefit from:
Cheetah is one of the fastest animal &
it catches its victims with high speed.
Positive people should be quick in
movement and carrying out their
tasks since the world now is moving
We can benefit from cow the
As we all know that the cow produces milk and
give us meat and there are those who benefit
from its skin and other things. Therefore, it is a
useful animal to people.
Positive people should be productive in society.
The production will be according to a person's
abilities. Some of them produce books and
some of them will produce in technical fields
and others in the field of lectures and so on.
By this, Society will be always improving &
developing in all important fields.
There are some positive
characteristics which we can
benefit from dog like:
Perhaps, dogs is the most famous animal with
this characteristic. The dog is loyal to its owner
so that it guards all that it is asked for.
Positive people should have this characteristic
since they have been educated by many teachers
& coaches. They should respect these people &
remember them in their prayers & say good
things about them always.
Home country should also been remembered &
be loyal to it.
Those who take dogs for guarding
want these dogs to warn them in case
there are any risks which could affect
Positive people have important role
also to warn people about risks which
are facing them & also the results of
performing bad things.
If no one in society performs this
important task, it might be that all
people will fill down into disasters.
Squirrel is very small animal, but
there is very nice characteristic
which we can benefit from it:
This small animal is very fast in his movement.
When it finds food, it moves fast to collect it &
returns back to its home.
Positive people should be fast in their movement &
not heavily & slowly moving from job to another
with difficulty and sometimes dragged by others.
The fast movement in the implementation will help
a person to perform the work more and vice versa
for the slow persons which may cause them to
continue the same work for days and days.
The first thing which may come to mind
when we talk about this animal is slowness,
but there is nice characteristic which we can
benefit from it:
Turtle is known when it‟s been attacked that it
protect itself & its enemies can‟t destroy its strong
Positive people should have self protection always
since many risks & dangers are surrounding them.
The main input for this self protection is strong
relation with Allah. Also, taking care about cultural
aspect is important for this self protection.
Many people like lions due to its
positive characteristics, some of
these characteristics are:
Lion is known as “King of the Jungle” & most
animals are afraid of it.
Braveness is very important characteristic for
positive people since without it, many things
can‟t be achieved specially those which need
dealing with others or raising issues which is
against people thoughts.
Braveness is not only limited to wars, but it
includes in all fields like politics, culture,
Lions are very famous with this
characteristic. It is clearly shown when
they attack other animals. In these attacks,
we can notice that every lion has a role to
perform & with team work, they are able
most of the times to achieve their objects
which is catching other animals.
Team work is one of the most important
factors of success. Without team work,
many things will not be achieved or will be
achieved with minimum results.
Positive people should always works in
teams in order to achieve their objectives
with their maximum level.
Some people might be surprised of
how can we benefit from this animal.
There is a very important
characteristic with it which is:
When the crocodile sees another animal near its area,
it seizes this opportunity & moves toward this animal
with an accurate movement & catches it most of the
The crocodile knows that these opportunities might
not come very often, so it takes its best efforts to seize
Opportunities are available in our world, but few
number of people seize them. Positive people should
always search for any good opportunities & tries their
best to get them & create another way for success
One of the positive
characteristics which we can
benefit from cats is:
This is a common characteristic between most
of animal, but I mentioned this characteristic
with cats since they are seen more in homes.
Cats usually take care about their children &
protect them from enemies even if they loose
This characteristic is very important for
positive people since they should take care
about others & support them always.
Some people might be surprised of how
can we benefit from this animal. There
is one special characteristic with it
Adaptation to Environment
Chameleon adapts to the environment or a place which is
in it by changing its color to the color of the place, which
helps to hide it from enemies.
Positive People have to adapt themselves to the
environment where they are. Whether cities or villages,
coastal areas or mountainous areas and so on.
Each place should be studied with its customs and
traditions so that positive people can speak their
language & effect them, but it should be pointed out that
the purpose of the adaptation is the effect and not
melting so that no bad habits will affect positive people.
The first thing comes to our mind
when we hear the name of this
animal is height, so we can benefit
the following characteristic
Investment of Abilities
The giraffe invests its height for eating
from long trees.
positive people should invest all abilities
provide by Allah to them & use these
abilities in beneficial things. It should be
known also that these abilities should be
We can benefit from this small
animal the following
The hedgehog defends itself from its enemies
by available thorns on its back. Although it is
small, but it can defend itself effectively.
This is a very important notification for all
positive people specially young ones, who
should be strong against enemies. This can be
achieved by different ways which most
important are strong relation with Allah &
strong basis of science & culture.
As known by most of people
that this animal has the
Fox is well know with this
Any positive person should be
away from this bad
characteristic since it will cause
hate & distrust from people.
This animal has one of the worst
characteristic which is:
Lack of Jealousy
This is very negative characteristic
which will lead to disasters on the
person himself, his family & the society.
Lack of jealousy will lead to corruption
in different fields.
Positive people should be away from this
Although the donkey has some positive
characteristic, but there is a famous
negative characteristic which we can
Allah described in holy Qur‟an that
sound of donkeys is most ugly sound.
People with ugly sound will not let
others to approach them, instead
positive people should always be with
nice words & accepted sounds.
These two birds which many people like,
have many positive characteristics. Since
these characteristic are common between
them, we will mention them for both of
Falcon & Eagle
Any one notice eagle or falcon, will realize
that they have a very specific vision. This
is well noticed when they target any
victim. They fly very fast & catch the
victim & usually their targets are
achieved because of this specific vision.
Positive people need this specific vision in
their life in order to be success.
There are many opportunities in society
which positive people need to study &
specify their vision towards them, so they
can decide to take or leave them.
Eagles & Falcons fly high in the sky
looking for prey which is clearly defined,
then invalidate them quickly, so they are
with clear objective always.
People who want to be positive should
have clear and specific objectives so that
they will be easier for apply and
This small bird has nice
This bird has very beautiful sound
which most people enjoy listening to
Positive people should always be with
nice sound in order to attract others.
People with nature nice sound should
invest their voice in beneficial things
like Reciting Qur'an.
Rooster is one of the birds that
some people keep at home. One
of the positive characteristics it
One of the greatest things that this bird
does is providing alarms for muslims to
wake up for „Al-Fajr‟ prayer.
Positive people should provide alarms &
warn other people from risks & dangers
existing in society.
Always positive people should wish
goodness for others.
This beautiful bird which some
people keep at home has one
negative characteristics which
Parrot is known that it blindly imitate any
sound it hears which might be nice or bad.
Positive people should always think before
imitating anything whether it is good or bad.
Worldwide practices have positive &
negative points, so positive people should
target for positive ones & neglect negative
ones & not take the practice as a whole.
The first characteristic which
come into mind when we talk
about this bird is:
Peacock is well known for its beauty and
because of this characteristic, some people
keep it in their home. Also, when people go the
zoo, they like to see this bird and wait for it to
open its tail.
Positive people also should care about their
beauty in clothes & shape, but without
profusion specially women.
But there is one negative
characteristic in peacock which is:
Peacock is also know for this negative
characteristic specially when it wants
to show its beauty to others.
This negative characteristic is really
devastating for any person & it will
lead other people to hate him & keep
away from him.
Positive people should be humble
always with all different people.
There is one common
characteristic in most fishes
Living in Groups
We can notice clearly that most fishes live &
move in groups. This will lead to many
benefits for them specially while defending
them selves against enemies.
Working in groups will help people to gain
many positive characteristics like how to deal
with others, how to achieve targets,
cooperation in solving problems and many
other characteristics which are needed for
Very strange fish specially we see it
in movies. It has one positive
characteristic which is:
This fish moves against water stream which is difficult task
for many other fishes.
They do that because they have clear objective to achieve
although they will face many risks.
Positive people may find that the society is full of negative
characteristics, so they should not live with these
characteristics, instead he should challenge them & try to
spread positive ones.
Moving against society is not easy, but positive people
should always do their best in order to save people from
dangers which are caused due to negative characteristics.
Benefits from animal world is too much
& what we mentioned in this
presentation is little bit of these
benefits. Surely there are many other
characteristic in this amazing world.
Whoever think in these characteristics,
realizes that Allah didn‟t create
anything with no benefits. All creatures
in the world has benefits whether we
knew them or not. This should lead us
to think more & more in order to
discover more of these characteristics &
It was very short trip in this world & I
hope whoever read this presentation
benefit from it.
