Can it be more clear?

In our modern society, where we are surrounded by new scientific discoveries and keep developing new technological solutions… what room is there for religion?

سورة النحل ٢٤
وَإِذَا قِيلَ لَهُم مَّاذَا أَنزَلَ رَبُّكُمْ ۙ قَالُوا أَسَاطِيرُ الْأَوَّلِينَ

Surah An-Nahl 16:24
When it is said to them, “What is it that your Lord has revealed?” they say, “Tales of the ancients!”

Humankind continues its neverending quest for knowledge, adding to the ever growing knowledge base. Ancient stories of old, faith in an “invisible God”… how can that measure up to tangible and detectable proofs and information that we now have access to?

Let’s take a brief look at a theory that has been accepted as a valid description of how our universe began… the “big bang” theory, a theory that often ends up as the very reason people reject faith.
“The theory that the universe started from a single point (or very small area) is known as the big bang theory. The theory was first proposed in 1927 by Belgian priest and physicist, Georges Lemaître, but was controversial until 1965.” **

سورة الأنبياء ٣٠
أَوَلَمْ يَرَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا أَنَّ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ كَانَتَا رَتْقًا فَفَتَقْنَاهُمَا ۖ وَجَعَلْنَا مِنَ الْمَاءِ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ حَيٍّ ۖ أَفَلَا يُؤْمِنُونَ

Surah Al-Anbiyaa 21:30
Do not the Unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together (as one unit of creation), before we clove them asunder? We made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe?

Remember the translation of the Quran from 300 years ago that I posted about in my previous update?

Modern spelling: “Do not the unbelievers therefore know, that the heavens and the earth were solid, and we clave the same in sunder.”
Even George Sale’s own commentary (from 1734) on this particular aya clarifies it even further…

“One continued mass of matter, till we separated them”. Imagine finding this information printed roughly 200 years before it was even thought of and nearly 250 years before the science community officially accepted it.
Not enough?
Then take a look at this. The original arabic aya, with specific emphasis on the part that describes the theory…

سورة الأنبياء ٣٠
… السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ كَانَتَا رَتْقًا فَفَتَقْنَاهُمَا …

Surah Al-Anbiyaa 21:30
… the heavens and the earth were joined together (as one unit of creation), before we clove them asunder …

Same statement, in its original arabic, from a Quranic manuscript that is 800 years old, (from the year 1226). Currently kept in a library in Munich, Germany. This 800 year old Quran can be downloaded here.

سورة يونس ٨٢
وَيُحِقُّ اللَّهُ الْحَقَّ بِكَلِمَاتِهِ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ الْمُجْرِمُونَ

Surah Yunus 10:82
“And Allah by His words doth prove and establish His truth, however much the sinners may hate it!”

Fascinating, right? With all this in mind, we can conclude that the arab muslims have had this information for a very long time. The people of that time may not have understood it properly, but the information was there and recited. It has only been available in English for the past 300 years, which is still a long time and certainly an indication pointing to the Quran as being from Someone who knew this before we did… الْخَالِقُ. Modern society call it a recent scientific discovery.

But let’s not forget that everything happens for a reason. I also believe there is a reason why it came to the scientists attention in later times… it came and then went public as a confirmation.

سورة فصلت ٥٣
سَنُرِيهِمْ آيَاتِنَا فِي الْآفَاقِ وَفِي أَنفُسِهِمْ حَتَّىٰ يَتَبَيَّنَ لَهُمْ أَنَّهُ الْحَقُّ ۗ أَوَلَمْ يَكْفِ بِرَبِّكَ أَنَّهُ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ شَهِيدٌ

Surah Fussilat 41:53
Soon will We show them our Signs in the (furthest) regions (of the earth), and in their own souls, until it becomes manifest to them that this is the Truth. Is it not enough that thy Lord doth witness all things?

The Quran is public access. We might wonder how such a thing hasn’t made more fuss. Somehow it speaks to a selected few. I didn’t know anything about this until I read the Quran personally. In this life, it is far too easy to pass things by… especially since most of our attention goes to our daily affairs…

سورة النور ٤٦
لَّقَدْ أَنزَلْنَا آيَاتٍ مُّبَيِّنَاتٍ ۚ وَاللَّهُ يَهْدِي مَن يَشَاءُ إِلَىٰ صِرَاطٍ مُّسْتَقِيمٍ

Surah An-Noor 24:46
We have indeed sent down signs that make things manifest: and Allah guides whom He wills to a way that is straight.

Peace and happiness, and stay faithful.
