THE PERFECT EQUILIBRIUM-Part 1.
 Allah Ta`ala has created the universe and then set it on an equilibrium movement.
وَالسَّمَاءَ رَفَعَهَا وَوَضَعَ الْمِيزَانَ [الرحمن : 7]
And He raised the Sky high and He set the balance.(55:7)
One of the tafseer of the above ayah talk of the balance of the earth and around.
The balance of gravity of the sun to the earth and the balance of the gravity of the moon around the earth. Since all these are merely swimming in the sea of farishtas, a vacuum to our eyes, Allah Ta`ala is the only manager that carefully finetune the solar system and whatever besides it. Allah Ta`ala holds the world and the skies with great compassion:
إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُمْسِكُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ أَنْ تَزُولَا وَلَئِنْ زَالَتَا إِنْ أَمْسَكَهُمَا مِنْ أَحَدٍ مِنْ بَعْدِهِ إِنَّهُ كَانَ حَلِيمًا غَفُورًا [فاطر : 41]
‘’Allah Ta`ala hold back the skies and the earth from chaos.’’(35:41)
So Allah Ta`ala is the continuous protector of the solar system, the earth and the whole set of galaxies.
صحيح مسلم – (1 / 420)
ٍ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي شُعْبَةُ عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ مُرَّةَ عَنْ أَبِي عُبَيْدَةَ عَنْ أَبِي مُوسَى قَالَ
قَامَ فِينَا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ بِأَرْبَعٍ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يَنَامُ وَلَا يَنْبَغِي لَهُ أَنْ يَنَامَ يَرْفَعُ الْقِسْطَ وَيَخْفِضُهُ وَيُرْفَعُ إِلَيْهِ عَمَلُ النَّهَارِ بِاللَّيْلِ وَعَمَلُ اللَّيْلِ بِالنَّهَار
Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam said :’’Allah Ta`ala does not sleep and He dare not sleep as He adjust upwards and downwards the balance.’’ Muslim
 To adjust the balance of the earth needs a continuous view over it and adjusting slowly the sunrise the sunset etc to turn the circle of the seasons and give the world a moderate liveable temperature requires constant management.
And this management does not make Allah Ta`ala tiresome:
وَسِعَ كُرْسِيُّهُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ وَلَا يَئُودُهُ حِفْظُهُمَا وَهُوَ الْعَلِيُّ الْعَظِيمُ [البقرة : 255]
‘’And to protect constantly the earth and the skies does not make Allah tired.’’(2:255)
Allah Ta`ala has set moderation in the earth temperature, unlike Mars or any other planet. Allah Ta`ala has set a moderate amount of rainfall seasons around the globe. This enhance life. And for us to upkeep the well being setting of the world, we need to judge according of the balance of Shariah. The moment we are faulty with the deen of Allah, then expect chaos in the environment and living conditions. Now read these ayahs of Surah Ar Rahmaan, Chapter The Merciful:
وَالسَّمَاءَ رَفَعَهَا وَوَضَعَ الْمِيزَانَ (7) أَلَّا تَطْغَوْا فِي الْمِيزَانِ (8) وَأَقِيمُوا الْوَزْنَ بِالْقِسْطِ وَلَا تُخْسِرُوا الْمِيزَانَ (9) وَالْأَرْضَ وَضَعَهَا لِلْأَنَامِ (10) فِيهَا فَاكِهَةٌ وَالنَّخْلُ ذَاتُ الْأَكْمَامِ (11) وَالْحَبُّ ذُو الْعَصْفِ وَالرَّيْحَانُ (12) فَبِأَيِّ آلَاءِ رَبِّكُمَا تُكَذِّبَانِ [الرحمن : 7 – 13]
And He has raised the sky and set the equilibrium balance.
So that you do not abuse upon the justice balance(of prescription of deen).
So that you weigh in total justice and do not dwarf the scale of justice.
As for the earth, He made it liveable for humans.
On there are fruits and date palms having sheaths.
And the grain having chaff and fragrant flowers.
So, O Mankind and Jinns, which of the bounties of your Lord do you deny?
Surah Rahmaan , ayahs 7-13. 
At the end of the day, to restore our equilibrium and well being, we need to follow Islamic prescriptions. That`s our only saviour down here and up there.
