The Quran on the Origin of the Universe


The Qur'an, the last revealed word of God ( Last Testament ), is the primary source of every Muslim's faith and practice. It deals with all the subjects which concern about human beings: wisdom, doctrine, worship, transaction, law etc., but the main purpose of the revelation is provide guidelines, detailed teaching, clarify the previous scriptures and so on. Note that the Qur'an was revealed to Muhammad p.b.u.h ( peace be upon him ) in Arabic only.

So, any Qur'anic translation, either in English or in other language, is neither Qur'an, nor a version of the Qur'an, but rather it is only a translation of the meaning of the Qur'an. The Qur'an exists only in the Arabic in which it was revealed.

The science of modern cosmology, observational and theoretical, clearly indicates that, at one point in time, the whole universe was nothing but a cloud of ‘smoke’ (i.e. an opaque highly dense and hot gaseous composition).1 This is one of the undisputed principles of standard modern cosmology. Scientists now can observe new stars forming out of the remnants of that ‘smoke’ (see figures 10 and 11).

Figure 10: A new star forming out of a cloud of gas and dust (nebula), which is one of the remnants of the ‘smoke’ that was the origin of the whole universe. (The Space Atlas, Heather and Henbest, p. 50.)

Figure 11: The Lagoon nebula is a cloud of gas and dust, about 60 light years in diameter. It is excited by the ultraviolet radiation of the hot stars that have recently formed within its bulk. (Horizons, Exploring the Universe, Seeds, plate 9, from Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy, Inc.) (Click on the image to enlarge it.)

The illuminating stars we see at night were, just as was the whole universe, in that ‘smoke’ material. God has said in the Quran: “ Then He turned to the heaven when it was smoke...” (Quran, 41:11) Because the earth and the heavens above (the sun, the moon, stars, planets, galaxies, etc.) have been formed from this same ‘smoke,’ we conclude that the earth and the heavens were one connected entity. Then out of this homogeneous ‘smoke,’ they formed and separated from each other. God has said in the Quran: “Have not those who disbelieved known that the heavens and the earth were one connected entity, then We separated them?...” (Quran, 21:30) 

Dr. Alfred Kroner is one of the world’s renowned geologists. He is Professor of Geology and the Chairman of the Department of Geology at the Institute of Geosciences, Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz, Germany. He said: “Thinking where Muhammad came from . . . I think it is almost impossible that he could have known about things like the common origin of the universe, because scientists have only found out within the last few years, with very complicated and advanced technological methods, that this is the case.” He also said: “Somebody who did not know something about nuclear physics fourteen hundred years ago could not, I think, be in a position to find out from his own mind, for instance, that the earth and the heavens had the same origin.”

Here is a more recent (and uncut) interview with Alfred on this matter:

Nice a nony mouse... still Qur'an reveal something in pass 1400 years ago. The uncut video is about Alfred Kroner point of view and his research on geology and qur'an. He said he agree and disagree about something in Qur'an. Nothing to do with it, his opinion might be wrong too. If you know what is science actually, science speak of something that could yield a result from an experiment and hypothesis which it can give final answer as it remain to be research as everything might change in next few second. But, if we said about something relate to revelation, it is the final decision and sign which made by God Himself. No one can even stop or hold a second. If He said be and it be... Do more research and look around you... too much thing we need to learn and discover. May God show us His path. Thank you...
