1. Islam, Qur’an & Science

1. Islam, Qur’an & Science
IslamiCity in Cyberspace
• "Do they not consider the Qur'an? Had it been from any other than God, they would surely have found therein much discrepancy. [Qur’an 4:82]"
• Do they not carefully consider (investigate) the Qur’an or are there locks upon their hearts. [Qur’an 47:24]
• A scientific approach has been encouraged in the Qur’an with the objective of ascertaining its truthfulness. It provides man with a chance to verify it authenticity.

The Origin of Universe & Life
• Do the unbelievers not realize that the heavens and the earth used to be one solid mass that we exploded into existence? And from water we made all living things. Would they believe? [Qur’an 21:30]
• Say: The (Qur’an) was sent sent down by Him who knows the secrets (that is) in the heavens and the earth... [Qur’an 25:6]
• “ Somebody who did not know something about nuclear physics 1400 years ago could not, I think, be in a position to find out from his own mind for instance that the earth and the heavens had the same origin, or many others of the questions that we have discussed here. “Professor of Geology Dr. Albert Kroner”.

The Origin of Life (Cont.)
• “... this very information is exactly what they awarded the 1973 Noble Prize for ... The Qur'an reveals the origin of the universe - how it began from one piece - and mankind continues to verify this revelation, even up to now. Additionally, the fact that all life originated from water would not have been an easy thing to convince people of fourteen centuries ago. “Professor of Mathematics, Dr. Gary Miller

• Then he turned to the sky, and it had been (as) smoke (dukhaan): He said to it and to the earth: come you together, willingly or unwillingly. They said: we do come (together) in willing obedience. [Qur’an 41:11]
• Scientists now can observe new stars forming up out of that smoke, which is the origin of our universe, as we see on these pictures.

Expansion of the Universe
• The following verse of the Qur'an where God is speaking may perhaps be compared with modern ideas: "The heaven, we have built it with power. Verily, we are expanding it. [Qur’an 51:47]
• The expansion of the Universe is the most imposing discovery of modern science. Today it is a firmly established concept and the only debate centers around the way this is taking place. It was first suggested by the general theory of relativity and is backed up by physics in the examination of the galactic spectrum; the regular movement towards the red section of their spectrum may be explained by the distancing of one galaxy from another. Thus the size of the Universe is probably constantly increasing and this increase will become bigger the further away the galaxies are from us.

• Is it not a fact that there was a time when the human being was nothing to be mentioned? We created the human from a liquid mixture, from two parents, in order to test him. Thus, we made him a hearer and a seer. [Qur’an 76:1-2]
• And God created every living creature from water. Some of them walk on their bellies, some walk on two legs, and some walk on four. God creates whatever He wills. God is Omnipotent. [Qur’an 24:45]

• What is the matter with you, that you are not conscious of God’s Majesty. Seeing that it is He that has created you in diverse stages? [Qur’an 71:13-14]

• He creates you in the wombs of your mother, in stages, one after another, in three veils of darkness. [Qur’an 39:6]
• ... Subsequently, we reproduced him from a tiny drop, that is placed into a well protected repository. Then we developed the drop into a hanging (embryo), then developed the hanging (embryo) into a bite-size (fetus), then created the bite-size (fetus) into bones, then covered the bones with flesh. We thus produce a new creature. Most blessed is God, the best Creator. Then, later on, you die. Then, on the Day of Resurrection, you will be resurrected. [Qur'an 23:12-16]

Embryology (Cont.)
• It was not until the middle of the 19th century when the scientists began to discover that the human embryonic development took place in several successive stages.
• A noted embryologist Keith L. Moore and expert in his field, upon being presented with the statements made in the Qur’an regarding the stages of the formation of the embryo from the mixing of the male and female gametes up to the embryo’s full development remarked "It has been a pleasure for me to help clarify statements in the Qur’an about Human Development. It is clear to me that these statements must have come to Muhammad from God or Allah because almost all of this knowledge was not discovered until many centuries later."

Embryology (Cont.)
• A famous French physician Maurice Bucaille addressed the French Academy of Medicine in 1976 and expressed the complete agreement of the Qur’an and established findings of modern science. He presented his study on the existence in the Qur’an of certain statements concerning physiology and reproduction. His reason for doing that was that "our knowledge of these disciplines is such, which it is impossible to explain how a text produced at the time of the Qur’an could have contained ideas that have only been discovered in modern times".

• When you look at the mountains, you think that they are standing still. But they are moving, like the clouds. Such is the manufacture of God, Who perfected everything. He is fully Cognizant of everything you do. [Qur'an 27:88]
• And the mountains as pegs. [Qur’an 78:7]
• And He has set up on the Earth Mountains standing firm, lest it should shake with you. [Qur’an 16:15]
• And we sent down Iron, in which is great might, as well as many benefits for mankind [Qur’an 57:25]

Conquest of Space
• O assembly of Jinns and Men, if you can penetrate regions of the heavens and the earth, then penetrate them! You will not penetrate them save with a Power. [Qur’an 55:33]
• "Even if We opened unto them a gate to Heaven and they were to continue ascending therein, they would say: our sight is confused as in drunkenness. Nay, we are people bewitched.” [Qur’an 15:14-15]
• When talking of the conquest of space therefore, we have two passages in the text of the Qur'an: one of them refers to what will one day become a reality thanks to the powers of intelligence and ingenuity God will give to man, and the other describes an event that the unbelievers in Makka will never witness, hence its character of a condition never to be realized.

Conquest of Space (Cont.)
• The event will however be seen by others, as intimated in the first verse quoted above. It describes the human reactions to the unexpected spectacle that travelers in space will see: their confused sight, as in drunkenness, the feeling of being bewitched. This is exactly how astronauts have experienced this remarkable adventure since the first human space flight in 1961.
• It is known in actual fact how once one is above the Earth's atmosphere, the Heavens no longer have the azure appearance we see from Earth. The human observer in space above the Earth's atmosphere sees a black sky and the Earth seems to be surrounded by a halo of bluish color due to the same phenomena of absorption of light by the Earth's atmosphere.

Other Facts
• In regards to Clouds, “Have you not seen how God makes the clouds move gently, then joins them together, then makes them into a stack, and then you see the rain come out of it...?” [Qur'an 24:43]
• Preservation of genetic data, “Does the human being think that We will not reconstruct his bones? Yes indeed; We are able to recreate even his fingerprint.” [Qur’an 75:3-4]
• Lost City of Ubar, “Seest thou not how thy Lord dealt with the 'Ad (people),- Of the (city of) Iram, with lofty pillars, The like of which were not produced in (all) the land?” [Qur’an 89:6-8]
• Currently, about 1,000 scientific signs have been identified in the entire Qur’an.

Qur’an: A Reminder to the Worlds
• It must be stressed that the Qur'an is accurate about many things, but accuracy does not necessarily mean that a book is a divine revelation. In fact, accuracy is only one of the criteria for divine revelations.
• The Qur'an states, "This book is a divine revelation; if you do not believe that, then what is it?" In other words, the reader is challenged to come up with some other explanation. Here is a book made of paper and ink. Where did it come from? It says it is a divine revelation; if it is not, then what is its source?
• … And they say, 'Surely he [i.e. Prophet Muhammed] is possessed [by jinn],’ but it [i.e., the Qur'an] is not except a reminder to the worlds." [Qur’an 68:51-52]
