The 'Sense'ble Lesson

In the name of Allah,
He who when sees, sees everything 
He who when hears, hears anything
He who when understands, understands all things

Now when discussing about senses, we could come back to the basics in science, where we (hoping that you all also have a scientific educational background) learned about our the senses in the human body. correct me if im wrong, it was in form 2 maybe?
We learned about what its made of..
the heat sensors, oval windows (semicircular canals?), vitreous humour
How it functions..
vibrations transferred into impulses by the cochlea? images on the retina? through the auditory nerves and grey matter?
And if i'm not mistaken, even to the extent of the consequences that might occur to our body if it malfunctions...

"Err,Hello...Hi, i'm bintuqamar, i'm a baccalaureate in pre-med..i got 4.00 for my first sem, 3.95 for the second and here i am reading some nonsense guy taking electrical engineering, trying to flag on something medical??Ewww!!.." (because its a girl)

Alrite2, even if ur not a pre-med student..or a med student..or even a girl,i apologise for that, and also for the effort in bringing out one of my nostalgic knowledge..maybe i missed them too much..

Whatever it point here is that in this world, we claim to understand matters to such a high extent, yet we still question ourselves why the heck do we even learn them. I mean you could know about every single part there is in your body but would you even know why they exist??

In this context, comes the verse;

وَلَقَدْ ذَرَأْنَا لِجَهَنَّمَ كَثِيرًا مِّنَ الْجِنِّ وَالإِنسِ لَهُمْ قُلُوبٌ لاَّ يَفْقَهُونَ بِهَا وَلَهُمْ أَعْيُنٌ لاَّ يُبْصِرُونَ بِهَا وَلَهُمْ آذَانٌ لاَّ يَسْمَعُونَ بِهَا أُوْلَـئِكَ كَالأَنْعَامِ بَلْ هُمْ أَضَلُّ أُوْلَـئِكَ هُمُ الْغَافِلُونَ
 And certainly We have created for Hell many of the jinn and mankind;  they have hearts with which they fail to understand; and they have eyes with which they fail to see; and they have ears with which they fail to hear. They are like cattle - indeed, even more astray. Such are utterly heedless
(Al-A'araf 7:179)

Here Allah explains to us, that in life, we must comprehend and understand the use of these perfect senses Allah has given us. BUT understanding alone is not enough, because there is a point, where IF we, mankind  fail to benefit the faculties of observation, hearing and reasoning, then it comes back to the first point..
And don't ask me why, bcoz Allah has cleared it crystal enough..
If we can't understand like we should, see things like we should, and listen to what we should..then how much better are we from cows and sheep. We'll be like filthy, corrupted and heedless creations wouldn't we?? And what use would that be rite??

So how should i actually use them??

What, haven't you been using them for the past decades??

Just use it as we always have, just with something new;When we see, stare (not too long, or people will stare back) and ask, am i seeing dunnya or akhirah.
When we hear, prick up our ears and ask, am i listening to reminders or entertainment.
When our hearts begin to love this world and contemplate about its condition in it..stop it..and tell it to love Allah, understand Him and our status in his visions

 Ya Allah.
For my sight, my hearing, my heart, are all yours.
Then let it function only for You.
