    The Quran & Science

    I started this thread after engaing in a disscussion with Faceup.

    I assert that the Quran has many literal descriptions of many scientific facts please read. Some of these are my interpretations...many astronomical and geological I have been proffessionally recognised in these subjects and am a muslim.

    I hate long posts....this is worth it though.


    --sura 21, verse 33:
    "(God is) the One Who created the night,and day, the sun and the moon. Each one is travelling in an orbit with its own motion."


    Self explanatory but recognised 14 centuries ago.

    "Do not the Unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together, then We clove them
    asunder and We got every living thing out of the water. Will they not then believe?"


    Effectively the newly proported 'big bang' theory.

    Also, as having studied paleontology, life in the fossil record emerges after the formation of oceans.

    sura 55, verse 33: "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."

    Effectively mans and (aliens?) conquest of space through escaping gravity.


    (sura 51, verse 47)
    "The heaven, We have built it with power. Verily. We are expanding it."


    Expanding universe...a very modern theory.


    Allah said: And the mountains Has He firmly fixed. (Qur'aan 79:32).
    And He said: And the mountains as pegs. (Qur'aan 78:7).

    And He also said: And he has set up on the earth mountains standing firm, lest it should shake with you. (Qur'aan 16:15).



    The mountains have a wedge-like shape where the mountain itself is but a small part of the whole whose root is deeply entrenched in the ground. One of the functions of the mountains is to play an important role in stabilizing the crust of the earth. This is exactly how the Qur'aan described mountains 14 centuries ago. 'Pegs'

    Or (the unbelievers state) is like the depths of darkness in a vast deep ocean, overwhelmed with billow topped by billow, topped by (dark) clouds: Depths of darkness, one above another: If a man stretches out his hand, he can hardly see it! For any to whom Allah does not give light, there is no light. (Qur'aan 24:40).

    Layers of oceanic depths below the photic zone! only realtively recently discovered. Light generally penertrates 200m.


    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'aan 41:11).

    Interstallar gas clouds....their condensation formed the sun earth and planets.

    Please feel free to ask questions.

    Some more:

    "He (God) has ordained the sun and the moon, each one runs (it's course) for an appointed time " (13:2)

    "And the sun constantly journeys towards a homing place for it and for the moon We (God) have determined phases" (36:39)


    Translation of meaning by Rashad Khalifa

    "and the earth, after that, He (God) made it oval shape (dahaha)" (79:30).

    Also the verse quoted by Thap on "Big Bang Theory" and "Every Living Thing made from water is" (21:30)

            The word (Sea or Water) mentioned 32 times, and the word (Landmass) mentioned 13 times in the Holy Qur'an, if we add them together we will get 45.

            Now let us do some calculations...

            By finding the percentage of the number of the word (Sea) to the total number of the words (Sea and Landmass) we will have:
            (32/45)x100% = 71.11111111111%

            By finding the percentage of the number of the word (Landmass) to the total number of the words (Sea and Landmass) we will have:
            (13/45)x100% = 28.88888888889%

            We will find what Allah (swt) said in His Holy Book 14 centaury ago that the ratio of water on earth is 71.11111111111%, and the ratio of landmass is 28.88888888889%,
            add them together and you will get 100%, and these are the real ratios of the Water and landmass on earth.

              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?


              The Qur'an 21:30

              God's ultimate power and the atom concept

              You do not get into any situation, nor do you recite any Qur'an, nor do you do anything, without us being witnesses thereof as you do it.

              Not even an atom's weight is out of your Lord's control, be it in the heavens or the earth.

              Nor is there anything smaller than an atom, or larger, that is not recorded in a profound record.


              Qur'an 10/61


              Embryology


              We created the human being

              from a certain kind of mud.

              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.

              The Qur'an 23:12-16


              The Husband Determines The Baby's Gender


              53/45. He is the One who created

              the two kinds, male and female,


              53/46. from a tiny drop of semen.

                Rashad Khalifa: Be careful of him, his translations and interpretation is not recognized among main stream Islam.
