|::Wonders of Allah in Camels::
Camels are animals that were created to survive the hottest climates on
Camels are commonly used for transportation in the desert. Deserts are
vast areas of sand and the temperatures in these areas can rise as high
as 500 C (1220 F).
You might have experienced temperatures around 300 C (860 F). Even at
such a temperature, you immediately become tired and thirsty when you
are out and playing.
Camels can still go for kilometres at temperatures of 500 C (1220 F).
They can stay without water for days. This is because Allah has also
created their bodies very differently from ours. Camels store the water
they drink inside them for long periods and they quench their thirst
with the water they carry within them.
Feeding is also a problem in the desert, since the desert is dry land
and there is almost no vegetation. There are only cactuses and other
thorny plants. The camel's mouth and lips are so tough that when it
bites, it can even pierce a hole in the sole of a shoe. This is why it
can easily feed on thorns and keep hunger away.
As well as that, the hair that covers the skin of the camel protects it
from the intolerable heat. Allah has made the camel's feet wide because
they always walk on desert sand. Due to their width, the camel's feet
don't sink in the sand. In addition, Allah has made the skin under the
camel's feet very thick. In this way, the soles of their feet never
There are very frequent sandstorms in the desert. Did you ever witness a
strong wind when you were at the beach? You would not have been able to
open your eyes because you had to try to prevent all the sand from
getting in them. If that wind were to become a bit stronger, you
wouldn't have been able to see ahead. However, camels have two layers of
eyelashes. These lashes weave into each other just like a trap and they
protect the camel's eyes during sandstorms.
Allah has created every living thing with the features that are most
suitable for their habitat. There are no penguins in the desert, for
instance. Since the penguin's features are not suitable for desert
conditions, the penguin would die quickly in the desert. Similarly,
camels could not survive near the poles. Allah has created everything
where they should be. Allah is the strongest and He has endless
knowledge. Allah creates everything without any shortcomings. Allah
informs us of the camel's creation in the Qur'an as:
