Islam And Modern Science
This article might be of an interest to all of you because it is connected to science. Many non-Muslims believe that Quran was written by Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) by him self. This article will shed some light over science in Quran which was revealed 1429 years ago. Science has developed only recently to an extent that it says exactly what the Quran has been saying long long ago. In this article i have covered only some of the points but there are lots of scientific facts present in Quran. This proves Quran to be the word of God and Islam the true religion. Quran is much more superior than science it self.
Life is made from water
All the scientists and philosophers of the time of Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) even long after that gave different theories about the life on earth. Aristotle, Anaxagoras, Lucretius (the Roman poet-philosopher), Newton (1642-1727), William Harvey(1578 ? 1657), Descartes (1596) all believed in the spontaneous generation and evidenced that life arises regularly from the non-living; worms from mud, maggots from decay meat, mice from refuse of various kinds etc? But Quran said more than 1400 years ago.
We made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe?? Quran 21:30
and now the science has proved that living things are made up of more than 70% water.
Big Bang Theory Regarding the origin of the universe, the most dominant and accurate theory so far has been the big bang theory. It was proposed by Georges Henri Joseph ?douard Lema?tre in 1927. According to this theory the entire universe was a compact ball of hot swirling gases. Every Galaxy, star, planet, comet and planetary dust (EVERYTHING) was included in this single unit. Later, this single unit was subjected to a massive and tremendous explosion that was caused by the enormity of the existing forces of magnanimous proportions within itself. This explosion is termed as the Big Bang by the scientists.This theory was proposed only in 1927 while the Quran had it already more than1400 years ago.
Do not the Unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together (as one unit of creation), before we clove them asunder? 21:30
Orbit of sun and moon All the scientists and even the most famous Greek scientists of those days used to present different theories. Most of them agreed that Sun revolves around the earth and that earth is stationary. But centuries later a theory appeared by NASA which explained that Sun was stationary but the earth and moon move on its axis. This theory was again edited by NASA and now it is confirmed that Sun, moon and earth all revolve around their respective axis. This is exactly what the Quran is saying from 1429 years.
.36:38-40And the sun runs on to a term appointed for it; that is the ordinance of the Mighty, the Knowing. And (as for) the moon, We have ordained for it stages till it becomes again as an old dry palm branch. It is not permitted to the Sun to catch up the Moon, nor can the Night outstrip the Day: Each (just) swims along in (its own) orbit (according to Law)
39:5 He created the heavens and the earth in true (proportions): He makes the Night overlap the Day, and the Day overlap the Night: He has subjected the sun and the moon (to His law): Each one follows a course for a time appointed. Is not He the Exalted in Power - He Who forgives again and again?
Expansion of Universe Modern science tells us that the universe was started from a singularity. The pictures taken by Edwin Hubbell in Mount Wilson observatory in 1929 showed that the universe was expanding. You must have read this even in physics that if the universe was not expanding all the planets would have collapsed with each other. It should be remembered that the concept of the continuous expansion of the universe is exclusive to the Quran. No other Divine scriptures even remotely hint at it.
51:47-48 With Hands did We construct the heaven. Verily, We are Able to extent the vastness of space thereof. And We have spread out the earth; how excellent spreader (thereof) are We!
Embryological Stages Sperm attaches itself to the egg to form an attachment or a leach, then a chewed-like lump which develops bones which are covered with flesh and then changed into a different form. This refers to facts discovered only recently when scientists using microscopes determined this, followed the development of the fetus from a fertilized egg to a form resembling lower vertebrae before turning into the human form. After contemplating the descriptions of embryonic stages as a leach then a chewed-like lump, Professor Keith Moore, a Canadian embryologist, compared pictures of different embryonic stages to pictures of leaches and chewed clay and confirmed the amazing accuracy of the Qur'anic verses.
023.014 Then We made the sperm into a clot of congealed blood; then of that clot We made a (foetus) lump; then we made out of that lump bones and clothed the bones with flesh; then we developed out of it another creature. So blessed be Allah, the best to create!
Darkness and waves inside sea
No one could go very deep inside the sea at the time of Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h). At that time every one thought that waves are only at the top of sea. But now as the submarines can withstand a lot of pressure, they go to great depths of sea and it is confirmed that even deep inside sea there are strong waves. And moreover scientists have proved that as you go deep into the sea it starts absorbing wavelengths of white light one by one. So when you go inside the sea first the red light is absorbed then at greater depth orange and in the same way all seven colours are absorbed until you can see nothing. Even with a bright light you will see only darkness. Let?s see how Allah explained this long ago.
24:40 Or (the Unbelievers? state) is like utter darkness in the deep sea: there covers it a wave above which is another wave, above which is a cloud, (layers of) utter darkness one above another; when he holds out his hand, he is almost unable to see it; and to whomsoever Allah does not give light, he has no light.
Low pressure and oxygen as you go up in the atmosphere
Mind you that there were no aero planes and helicopters at the time of Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h). As we go up in the atmosphere the pressure and oxygen goes on decreasing. The ayah below refers to the discomfort in breathing experienced at high altitudes, a situation early Arabs are unlikely to have known about.
06:125 Therefore (for) whomsoever Allah intends that He would guide him aright, He expands his breast for Islam, and (for) whomsoever He intends that He should cause him to err, He makes his breast strait and narrow as though he were ascending upwards; thus does Allah lay uncleanness on those who do not believe.January 7th, 2009, 03:31 PM #2
