Humankind, in general, has maintained a belief in the existence of the Creator of the Universe since time immemorial. The duty of the prophets of Allah was not so much to inform their people of Allah’s existence as to warn them against associating others with Him, and to teach them how to serve Him.
The prevailing thought until the early 20th century was that the universe was of infinite size, that it had existed since eternity, and that it would continue to exist forever. According to this mistaken view, called the “static universe model”, the universe had neither a beginning nor an end.

Eyes are to show us the physical materials, but wisdom is to show us the meaning behind these physical materials. If you realize, the wisdom (mind) is invisible, but it is accepted as a base to fathom many invisible things. We as humans have, not only the wisdom (mind), but also hundreds of invisible emotions (like conscious) for those seeking Allah and desiring to fathom His existence. The victims of this materialist century ought to know that just as a book is appreciated through its meaning, or a human being gains value through his spirit (without the spirit he is death.); the spirit of the material is its spiritual meaning.
