The Sun, The Moon and The Flower

The 3 things that always need each other, seemingly separate entities but work in tandem so cooperatively, like they are one.
“(He is the) Cleaver of the daybreak. He has appointed the night for resting, and the sun and the moon for reckoning. Such is the measuring of the All-Mighty, the All-Knowing.” – [Al-Anaam, Chapter #6, Verse #96]
“It is He Who made the sun a shining thing and the moon as a light and measured out for it stages that you might know the number of years and the reckoning. Allah did not create this but in truth. He explains the Ayat (proofs, evidence, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) in detail for people who have knowledge.” – [Yunus, Chapter #10, Verse #5]
“...He has subjected the sun and the moon (to continue going round), each running (its course) for a term appointed. He manages and regulates all affairs; He explains the Ayat (proofs, evidence, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) in detail, that you may believe with certainty in the meeting with your Lord.” – Ar-Rad, Chapter #13, Verse #2]
“And He has subjected to you the night and the day, and the sun and the moon; and the stars are subjected by His Command. Surely, in this are proofs for people who understand.” – [An-Nahl, Chapter #16, Verse #12]
Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: “He who is presented with a flower should not reject it, for it is light to carry and pleasant in odor.” – [Book #027, Hadith #5600 – Sahih Muslim]
Be The Sun, providing light, guidance and warmth.. and The Moon, a beautiful and engulfing glow that provides serenity and tranquility… and The Flower, in all its colorful glory and intoxicating smell, prompting eternal smiles and memories.
