Saying الله أكبر (Allah- u Ekber - God is Great) does not mean you are realizing God's greatness.
Today, there are people uttering the words الله أكبر (Allah-u ekber) as they behead and amputate the limbs of others. Thus, they commit such atrocities performed only by primitive tribes.
Allah disdains not to use the similitude of things, even of a gnat ** as well as anything above it.
‘’THE COW SURRAH VERSE 26’’
Why a mosquito? …Because it is one of the smallest and most frail creatures in nature and its legs are barely visible to the naked eye.. I am, now, going to tell about the mosquito and despite its trivial size you will realize its state of the art design.
The mosquito is the common name of the bloodsucking Culicidae family belonging to the double winged (Diptera) group. The Anophlese is also a mosquito belonging to the same group having nearly 400 species. Although they are all bloodsuckers, it is only the Anophlese that transmit malaria.
When a mosquito lands on your skin and penetrates, you do not feel any pain. Because the syringe of a mosquito is so miniscule that it punctures an opening the size of a pore. Naturally, when the blood withdrawn from our body contacts the air, the thrombokinase enzyme causes it to clot, which makes it impossible for a mosquito to suck blood out of any such opening. For this reason, the mosquito injects an enzyme called heparin to dilute the blood. The itching felt after having been bitten by a mosquito, is caused by the heparin enzyme.
The exquisite state of art design of this barely visible creature, makes us better understand Allah's wisdom. It is then that you can say الله أكبر ( Allah-u Ekber -God is Great) And even as you manually exterminate this bloodsucking creature which has bitten you, you will think twice. Naturally, we have to destroy a creature that is harmful to us. But we human beings, let alone a mosquito, even kill other humans uttering الله أكبر ( Allah-u Ekber - God is Great) and without giving it a second thought. Because just saying الله أكبر (Allah- u Ekber- God is Great) does not mean we realize God's greatness.
Now, we may ask: Why has God created such a small but harmful creature?
Because the mosquito is the main source of nutrition for frogs and lizards. And frogs and lizards are the source of nutrition for stork like animals. This nutrition chain follows in an ascending sequence and at the highest loop are us human beings.
If you do not have the power to create. . .
You cannot have the power to destroy.…
Not equal are the blind and those who (clearly see: Nor are (equal )those who believe and work deeds of righteousness, and those who do evil. Little do you learn by admonition.

SHOWING THE WAY
* and * The Qur'anic surrahs have been taken from A. Yusuf Ali’s “ The Holy Qur’an, Text Translation and Commentary published inn 1975 by the Islamic Foundation in 1975, in the United Kingdom.
translationd of Surrah II verse 26 of The Heifer (Cow) of the Holy Quran; the
similitude is based on the mosquito and in some the gnat. In some the bug or
insect is not even mentioned. Instead it says that God makes similitudes between
the smallest of creatures.
