mothers, creation after creation, in a
threefold darkness. That is Allah, your
Lord!” (Al-Zumar 39:6)

The Origin of Life in Water
 The idea of life originating in the oceans is strongly
supported in the Holy Qur’an.
o “…And We made every living thing out of water…” (AlAnbiya 21:30)
o “Allah created every animal from water” (Al-Nur 24:45)
 “…it is believed that early forms of life developed in
oceans or pools…It has been suggested that the
colonization of land, about 425,000,000 years ago, was
possible only because enough ozone was then
produced to shield the surface from ultraviolet light for
the first time.” (Encyclopedia Brittanica)
The Ongoing Process of Creation
 There are verses in the Holy Qur’an which indicate
that Allah has not ‘finished’ creation; rather, it is
an ongoing process.
o “…and He creates what you do not know.” (AlNahl 16:8)
o “…Allah creates whatever He wishes. Indeed
Allah has power over all things.” (Al-Nur 24:45)
 The emergence of new galaxies from huge
clouds of nebulae.
 The evolution of species.
The Cerebrum
 Allah said in the Holy Qur’an about one of the
unbelievers who forbade the Holy Prophet
from praying at the kaaba:
o “…If he does not stop, We shall seize him
by the Naseyah (front of the head), a lying,
iniquitous Naseyah!” (Al-Alaq 96:15)
The Cerebrum - Cont’d…
This area of the cerebrum (from of the head) is responsible for
motivating, planning, and initiating good and sinful behavior, and
is responsible for the telling of lies and the speaking of the truth.
The Origin of the Universe
 One of the most popular and widely accepted
theories in science is the Big Bang Theory.
o This theory states that the universe was
created from a small dot of energy that
exceeds our imagination.
o This dot of energy exploded creating the
necessary material for the creation of the
o With the passage of time, Hydrogen and
Helium atoms began to combine and create
galaxies, stars and planets.
The Origin of the Universe–Cont’d...
 The science of modern cosmology states that
at one point in time, the whole universe was
nothing but a cloud of ‘smoke’ (a highly
dense and hot gaseous composition.)
The Origin of the Universe–Cont’d...
 Scientists can now observe new stars
forming out of the remnants of that ‘smoke’.
o “Then He turned to the heaven, and it was
smoke…” (Fussilat 41:11)
The Origin of the Universe-Cont’d…
 Because the earth and the heavens above
(sun, moon, stars…) have been formed
from this same ‘smoke’, we can conclude
that the earth and the heavens were one
connected entity.
o “Have the faithless not regarded that the
heavens and the earth were interwoven
and We disjoined them…” (Al-Anbiya
The Expanding Universe
 Scientists discovered the universe was
expanding in the 1900’s.
 “We have built the sky with might, and
indeed it is We who are its expanders. And
the earth We have spread it out, so what
excellent spreaders We have been!” (AlDhariyat 51:47-48)
 The world experienced a great leap in science
when Einstein proposed his theories of
o According to his theories, time is relative,
and it depends on the speed at which one
 A Muon (a particle smaller in size than an
 Einstein discovered this idea in 1921.
Time - Cont’d…
 1330 years ago, Allah mentioned the idea of
relativity in clear terms.
o “He directs the command from the
heavens to the earth, then it ascends
toward Him in a day whose span is a
thousand years by your reckoning. (AlSajjdah 32:5)
o “The angels and the Spirit ascend to Him in
a day whose span is fifty thousand years.”
(Al-Ma’arij 70:4)
 The Shape of the Earth
 Today we can look at a
globe and know that the
earth is somewhat like a
ball or a sphere
 Allah made this clear in
the Holy Qur’an
Earth – Cont’d…
o “…He winds the night over the day, and winds
the day over the night, and He has disposed the
sun and the moon, each moving for a specified
term.” (Al-Zumar 39:5)
 Winds = Kawwara; which is used in describing
the action of coiling a turban around the head.
The Mountains
– Allah clearly describes mountains in the Holy
o “Have we not made the earth as a bed, and
the mountains as pegs?” (Al-Naba’ 78:6-7)
The Mountains – Cont’d…
o Modern earth science have proven in the
latter half of the 19th century that mountains
have deep roots under the surface of the
ground, several times their elevations above
the surface.
The Mountains - Cont’d …
– Allah says in the Qur’an that mountains
hinder the shaking of the earth.
o “He cast in the earth firm mountains, lest it
should shake with you…” (Al-Nahl 16:15)
o Modern theory of plate tectonics holds that
mountains work as stabilizers for the earth.
The Clouds
– Meteorologists have long studied thunderstorm
clouds to understand how they form
o The clouds are pushed by the wind to an area
of convergence
The Clouds – Cont’d…
o The clouds join together forming a larger
The Clouds – Cont’d…
o Stacking – when the clouds join together,
they grow vertically, as if it is stacked.
The Clouds – Cont’d…
 Allah says in the Qur’an:
o “Have you not regarded that Allah drives
the clouds, the He composes (joins) them,
and He piles them up, whereat you see the
rain issuing from its midst?...” (Al-Nur
 Meteorologists have recently come to
know these details using equipment such
as satellites, planes and computers.
The Proportion of Rain
 “..and (He) sent down water from the sky in a
measured manner, and We revived with it a
dead country.” (Al-Zukhruf 43:11)
 This ‘measure’ mentioned above deals with a
couple of characteristics of rain.
The Proportion of Rain– Cont’d …
At any given time, the amount of rain, which falls on the
earth, is exactly the same.
 16 million tons of water evaporates from the earth.
 This number is equal to the amount of water the
drops on the earth in one second
• Another measure related to rain is its falling speed.
 Minimum altitude of rain is 1200 meters.
 An object with rains weight and size would fall at 558
 However, the speed of rain is 8-10 km/h.
The Proportion of Rain– Cont’d …
oThe atmospheric layer where it starts to
rain is -40C.
 Despite this, rain drops never turn into ice
 The reason is that water in the atmosphere
is pure water
A Miracle of Qur’an
… and a thought to reflect upon…
 “Had We sent down this Qur’an upon a
mountain, you would have surely seen it
humbled (and) go to pieces with the fear
of Allah. We draw such comparisons for
mankind, so that they may reflect.” (AlHashr 59:21)
If you would like, send this message on….it is the
way we touch each other with simple truths that
spreads goodness in the world.
If you do good, a Good thing may happen for you.
