In this scientific research, we live with a new sign and amazing miracle and established truths that the Qur'an has spoken about fourteen centuries ago ….
Thanks to Allah who has favored us with the Qur'an and made it a light for us the darks of life. Prayers and a lot of peace are from Allah upon this illiterate prophet for whom the Qur'an was his moral, leader, remedy and light of heart, and upon his family and companions.
It is the best minute that the believer lives when he takes from science a way to the faith in Allah (the Almighty) and the certainty of the greatness of his book and its eternal miracles. The ample scientific and universal facts, that the Qur'an is flowing with, are nothing but a means has been prepared by Allah (TWT) for every believer so that his faith in This Ever-Magnificent Creator will increase. It is also considered a means for the disbeliever to see the light of faith and Qur'an and the truth of Islam-message.
In this scientific research, we live with a new sign and amazing miracle and established truths that the Qur'an has spoken about fourteen centuries ago. Nowadays, the western scientists have come in the twenty –first century to repeat those facts verbatim.
Thus we should not be surprised when we know that the scientists have already started to return back to the use of the same qura'nic expression. This speech has neither exaggeration nor deceit; on the contrary it is a truthful fact that proves - for every one who calls that the Qur'an has not any scientific nor universal miracles - that although the Qur'an is a book descended as guidance and legislation, it is a science book. Therefore, each scientist finds in it a miracle that is suitable for his scientific specialization.
In this series of qur'anic scientific research we will live through a fiducial journey in the zone of the qur'anic verses. We will know how does science coincides with the holy book descended by Allah (Exalted be He).Moreover, we see that the Qur'an exceeds science because the Qur'an is the book of Allah and his everlasting miracle.
Through the scientific universal facts of this research, we sail in some verses that spoke about the building of sky. Recently, science came to assure that the whole universe is a perfect building that has neither vacuity nor confusion or disorder.
Scientists confirm the richness that the universe shows in its perfect building. They also assure their recognition of the universal cosmic web as a perfectly and innovatively woven cosmic web. In addition, they saw the stars and galaxies the same as the pearls that decorate the string.
This great verse assures that the sky is a building. We will see this in detail in the coming paragraphs of this book.
Concerning the universal cosmic web has been mentioned by the Qur'an as Allah (Exalted be He) says while swearing by the sky:
And (by) the heaven comprising interwoven tracks Surat Ath-Thariyat (The Winnowers) verse no. 7
Thus the scientists have managed very recently to see the universe through magnifying measures and it appeared exactly as a tightly-woven cosmic web. Thus we find that the most accurate description for the scenery that the scientists see recently is the holy verse: "And (by) the heaven comprising interwoven tracks". Blessed is Allah, the Creator of this universe and the Creator of this interwoven cosmic web.
Moreover, we will see the qur'anic description of the universal smoke in one of the universe building- stages. The scientists have proven- using the decisive evidence and the laboratory analysis for some clouds gas atoms taken from the outer space- that the most accurate description for those atoms is the word “smoke”. Here, the greatness of the Holy Qur’an -that precedes the scientists in the usage of this noun –appears in Allah (the Exalted) saying:
Thereafter He leveled Himself (How He did so is beyond human understanding) to the heaven (while) it was smoke, then said to it and to the earth, “Come up (you two) willingly (Or: in obedience) or unwillingly!” They (both) said, “We come up willingly.” Surat Fussilat (Expounded) verse no.11
We have two miracles in this verse: the first one is the qur'anic speech about the smoke in one of the developmental stages of the universe building. This is what is assured nowadays by the scientists. The second miracle is the qur'anic speech about the sky sound during that stage, which is coinciding with what the scientists have recently discovered i.e. the universe in its beginning after the great explosion has transmitted sound waves.
The existence of those scientific and newly discovered facts -in a book descended fourteen centuries ago- is a material evidence that the Qur'an is the speech of Allah (Exalted is He). Also, it is evidence that the Qur'an is a book that is suitable for every time and every place. Most of the suspicious about the book of Allah (Exalted is He) are nowadays claiming that the Qur'an is not suitable for our time under the pretense that the verses, which spoke about the universal phenomena, are not correct from the scientific viewpoint.
Therefore this research is considered a step on the road of correcting their view. The facts, which we will see and we will depend in their explanation on their scientists’ statements in NASA space agency, are considered the best proof on the perfect coincidence between what the scientists have reached today and what has been mentioned in the book of Allah (the Almighty) hundreds of years ago.
I hope that this qur'anic scientific series be a means for the believer to remember the greatness of the book of his Lord (Glorified and Exalted is He) and a means to guide the disbeliever in order to know that the Qur'an is the truth. Allah (Exalted is He) says:
And that the ones who were brought knowledge may know that it is the Truth from your Lord, (and) so they believe in it; then their hearts be venerating to Him; and surely Allah indeed guides the ones who have believed to a straight Path. Surat Al-Hajj (The Pilgrimage) verse no.54
