This message is only for those scientists who made some huge contributions in lighting the way of humanity to discovering secrets of universe and they were the reason behind our understanding for the scientific miracles in the Qur'an…..
Thanks for your sincere contributions in lighting our way to discovering these useful discoveries for humanity which were the reason to understand our holy book (the Qur'an), in fact there are many verses in our book that were confusing for Muslims for many years, but after your discoveries I realized what is meant by these verses which increased my submission to Allah almighty.
Allah almighty says in His holy book about scientists: (It is only those who have knowledge among His slaves that fear Allah) (Sûrat Fâtir-verse28), this verse praises every scientist all over the world regardless his nationality or religion….indeed those scientists who discovered secrets of universe know the unseen power behind that universe!
I say for every scientist: thank you for helping me to understand the vague meanings in the Qur'an.
Sure, my dear scientist you may be surprised of what I am saying as you may ask: what is the relation between the Qur'an and your scientific discoveries?
My answer is that the Qur'an tells us in many verses about universe, earth, seas, psychology….these verses were vague for hundreds of years but fortunately after your valuable discoveries these verses became clear which truly increased my faith.
My dear, for many times I used to be confused in front of a verse as Allah almighty says: (By the Sky with (its) Tightened weave) (Sûrat Al Zâriyât – verse 7) but I didn't find any kind of weaves in the sky till the latest discovery by a group of scientists from Germany, America and UK who used the supercomputer to draw a thumbnail for the universe, then I saw the galaxies in a tightened weave , after that I became more believer and my faith increased.
Therefore discoveries of scientists were a reason behind increasing my faith and believe.
If we look attentively at this photo, it is easy to realize that galaxies are not distributed randomly but in a long accurate weaves and the length of each weave is about hundreds of millions of light years .so, those scientists realized that there is a tightened weave in the sky, therefore they used the term (cosmic web). After that they released an article with title: " How filaments of galaxies are woven into the cosmic web ". In this research scientists used the same koranic word (weave), at this moment I realized that the verse talks about this weave as god says :( By the Sky with (its) Tightened weave).
In another verse Allah almighty says: (Then He rose over (Istawâ) towards the heaven when it was smoke, and said to it and to the earth: "Come both of you willingly or unwillingly." They both said: "We come willingly.")(Sûrat Fussilat
-verse11), then I asked myself, what is the relation between smoke and formation of the universe?
I didn't find any answer till one of your scientists discovered the cosmic smoke and also he discovered that the cosmic smoke was formed billions of yeas ago at the beginning of the universe…..many thanks for that scientist.
This photo for a molecule of cosmic smoke which consists of small molecules, it looks like the smoke of a cigarette, scientists captured this photo by a microscope from a fallen meteorite and it was discovered that its diameter is 3 micrometer and it consists of carbon and silicon.
Scientists confirm that the smoke exists from the beginning of the universe and that smoke is distributed in the whole universe, it covers the surface of planets and it forms stars and galaxies. Source NASA
No one can forget your valuable discovery which is the deep waves when one of your scientists discovered the existence of surface waves and deep waves (1000M under the water surface) and these waves are in a dark area. Here I remembered the divine statement when Allah almighty says: (Or (the Unbelievers' state) is like the depths of darkness in a vast deep ocean, overwhelmed with billow (a large wave) topped by billow, topped by (dark) clouds: depths of darkness, one above another: if a man stretches out his hands, he can hardly see it! for any to whom Allah giveth not light, there is no light!). (Sûrat Al-nour –verse40).
The Qur'an tells us about darkness and deep waves in the deep sea but I didn't realize what is meant by these verses till your discovery.
The scientists used satellites, submarines and floating laboratories to discover the deep waves but Allah told us 1400 years ago about these waves when He almighty says: (Or (the Unbelievers' state) is like the depths of darkness in a vast deep ocean, overwhelmed with billow (a large wave) topped by billow) Source: NASA
I thanked Allah so much when I read the western research that rate of suicide in Muslim countries is about 0%, researchers say that the reason is the commitment to the principles of Islam …..At that time, I remembered the divine statement when Allah almighty says in His holy book: (And do not kill yourselves (nor kill one another). Surely, Allah is Most Merciful to you.)(Sûrat An-Nisâ’ -verse29).so I started to re understand the meaning of that verse and to feels its importance.
In another discovery, scientists reported that forelock area (upper and front of the brain) controls the right decision making, so as long as this area is active and efficient, the taken decisions would be more accurate and wise.
That is exactly what our prophet Mohamed (Peace be upon him) said in his supplication (oh god, my forelock is between your hand) [Narrated by Ahmed].in this supplication there is a full submission from the prophet to his God be He exalted as God is controlling however He wants and is predetermining whatever He wants . Also scientists discovered that forelock area plays a vital role in realizing, steering, problem solving and creation.
After long studies for brain activities, scientists had discovered that the most important area is the forelock (forepart of the head ) as this area is responsible for creation and steering operations so prophet Mohamed (Peace be upon him) confirms that this area is so important , and this is a miracle which testify that the prophet is sincere . How could he know about that issue in a time when no one knows anything about it? God taught him all of that as Allah says: (and taught you that which you knew not. And Ever Great is the Grace of Allah unto you) (An-Nisa'- verse 113)
Therefore, without your scientist I wouldn't be able to understand this fact in the right way, but I would like to mention that the Qur'an is full of many other scientific realities.
At the end
You may ask a question, O Muslims, do you have any scientific discoveries from the holy Qur'an? The answer is yes, and here is some of it.
Allah says in the Qur'an: (Verily, the likeness of ‘Îsâ (Jesus) before Allah is the likeness of Adam. He created him from dust, then (He) said to him: "Be!" - and he was.)(Sûrat Âl-‘Imrân -verse59).the most amazing thing is that the word ‘Îsâ (Jesus) was mentioned 25 times in the whole Qur'an and also Allah almighty mentioned Adam 25 times!!!
Also the Qur'an tells us about this life and the hereafter and Allah confirms that the Qur'an guarantees the happy life before and after death as He almighty says: (Whoever desires a reward in this life of the world, then with Allah (Alone and none else) is the reward of this worldly life and of the Hereafter. And Allah is ever All-Hearer, All-Seer.)(Sûrat An-Nisâ’ -verse134).
It is amazing to know that the word "life" was mentioned 115 times in the whole Qur'an and also Allah almighty mentioned" hereafter"115 times!!!
my dear scientist, if you read the Qur'an you will find that the word(Allah) is the most repeated word as it was mentioned 2699 time. Can you find a book the name of its author is the most frequent word?
What does it mean to find (in a book its author is (Allah) and He says that He is (one)) that the word (Allah) is the most frequent word and the number one is the most frequent number …it means one thing that is the author of the Qur'an is Allah the One !!
Hence, we can clearly see the greatness of the Qur'an which testify that it was descended from Allah almighty the only creator and the one God.
I won't ask you to convert to Islam ……but I am asking you to look attentively at these facts and to examine these scientific verses ….Allah almighty says :( Had we sent down this Qur'an on a mountain, you would surely have seen it humbling itself and rent asunder by the fear of Allah. Such are the parables which we put forward to mankind that they may reflect.)(Sûrat Al-Hashr-verse21).
