SCIENTIFIC MIRACLES OF THE NOBLE QUR’AN

IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, THE BENEFICENT, THE MERCIFUL

BEING THE SECOND KHUTBAH FOR THE MONTH OF RABI’U-THAANI 9/R.THAANI/1441AH (6 /DEC/2019CE)

 

SCIENTIFIC MIRACLES OF THE NOBLE QUR’AN

[All] praise is [due] to Allah, who has sent down upon His Servant the Book and has not made therein any deviance. ” (Q18: 1-5). We praise Him, the exalted and thank Him, we believe in Him and rely on Him. I bear witness that there is no deity worthy to be worship except Him alone, without partner. I equally bear witness that our leader and our master, Muhammad is his servant and messenger. O Allaah shower your peace and blessing upon Muhammad (SAW) whom you sent to the whole worlds as a glad tiding and warner. You revealed onto him (SAW) the clear scripture (Al-Qur’aan) as a firmly everlasting proof till the day of Judgement. O Allaah! Be pleased with his noble companions those who spread the law of the Qur’aan and its justice and equity and those who followed them in righteousness till the Day of Recompense.

 

Thereafter, O servant of Allaah, I admonish you and myself to fear Allaah, following His injunction:

“”يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ حَقَّ تُقَاتِهِ وَلَا تَمُوتُنَّ إِلَّا وَأَنْتُمْ مُسْلِمُونَ ” (  آل عمران : 102 )

O you who have believed, fear Allah as He should be feared and do not die except as Muslims [in submission to Him]. Q3:102

My brothers and sisters in faith, this is the second sermon in Rabi’uth-Thaani, and our topic today shall be focused on a valuable discourse, which is indispensable to every Muslim and that is: “The scientific Miracles of the noble Qur’aan

Dear honoured Muslims, surely, the scientific miracles are numerous, the great scientists of this world have discovered and confirmed these astounding realities of knowledge in the noble Qur’aan. We shall mention them briefly considering the time and capacity at our disposal.

  1. The unity of existence and the essence of life

Allaah, the exalted says:

{أَوَلَمْ يَرَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا أَنَّ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضَ كَانَتَا رَتْقاً فَفَتَقْنَاهُمَا وَجَعَلْنَا مِنَ الْمَاءِ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ حَيٍّ أَفَلا يُؤْمِنُونَ} (الأنبياء آية 30)

Have those who disbelieved not considered that the heavens and the earth were a joined entity, and We separated them and made from water every living thing? Then will they not believe? (Q21:30)

The Tafseer of the verse: Allaah the exalted demonstrates in this verse His absolute power and great authority in the creation of things and subdual of the creations addressing the disbelievers in His Lordship who also join partners with Him thus:

Can’t they see that the heavens and the earth were as one single matter (entity), jointly fixed together ab initio? Then, they got separated making the heavens seven firmaments and the earth of same layers. He then filled the space between the earth and the closest heaven with air, it also releases rain and the earth produces plants. Allaah the exalted says:

وَجَعَلْنَا مِنَ الْمَاءِ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ حَيٍّ أَفَلا يُؤْمِنُونَ} (الأنبياء آية 30)

… and We separated them and made from water every living thing? Then will they not believe? (Q21:30)

A clear expository that water forms the content of every living thing- concrete, plants, animals and human beings. For there can be no life without water. For this reason the stars… like the moon and planets are not habitable due to absence of water.

Abu Hurairah (RA) narrated: “I said: O messenger of Allah, when I see you, I feel great satisfaction and delight, inform me about everything. He replied: “Everything was created from water” Then Allah conclude the verse with “Then will they not believe?” i.e would you not confirm with what you can see? Surely that cannot exist on its own, rather it has its fashioner and disposer.

Scientific commentary on the verse: This miraculous revelation in the Qur’an is supported by modern science, which posit that the universe was a single matter made of gaseous content and then was split into planets (cloud of gas). Our solar system as of today is the result of all those divisions. This position is explained by scientists that the sun has 67 components of the 93 components found on earth. The number of elements discoverable in the sun could be more provided the attending difficulties involved in the process of discovery is surmounted.
Some of the common elements found in the sun which is common as well on earth as known to us include: Hydrogen, Helium, Carbon, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Phosphorus, Iron … etc.

2 – The Origins of the Universe:
{ثُمَّ اسْتَوَى إِلَى السَّمَاءِ وَهِيَ دُخَانٌ فَقَالَ لَهَا وَلِلأَرْضِ ائْتِيَا طَوْعاً أَوْ كَرْهاً قَالَتَا أَتَيْنَا طَائِعِينَ} (فصلت آية 11)

Allah said: {  Then He directed Himself to the heaven while it was smoke and said to it and to the earth, “Come [into being], willingly or by compulsion.” They said, “We have come willingly.” } (41:11).

The Tafsir of the Quranic verse: This means that Allah deliberately decided the creation of the heaven and intended to proportionate it, or it means that His order ascended to the heaven while it was smoke. The smoke is all that rose from the flame of fire and it is equally used to refer to rising vapour, steam or dust from the ground. Most commentators said that the smoke is water vapour that rose from the water when it was created. What is referred to is that it was existing before then. Then Allah addressed the heaven and the earth, saying Come [into being], willingly or by meaning bring forth all the provisions and benefits that I have made in you to my creatures and they responded appropriately.

 

Scientific commentary on the verse: The astronomers have several theories for the beginning of the universe. The renown astronomer Sir James Jeans says : (the reasonable fact is that matter in the universe began as gas which began to spread through the space systemically and the planets were formed by the condensing of these gases)
Also a professor of theoretical nature at the University of Washington- Dr. George Jammu in his book, Suns, said: (The Universe at the beginning was filled with gas, which was distributed uniformly. It was a gas of which the density and temperature are unimaginable …)

3 – The expansion and expanse of the universe :
{وَالسَّمَاءَ بَنَيْنَاهَا بِأَيْدٍ وَإِنَّا لَمُوسِعُونَ} (الذاريات آية 47)

{And the heaven We constructed with strength, and indeed, We are [its] expander.} (51: 47) .

The Tafsir of the Quranic verse: Allah (swt) pointing to the creation of the firmaments And the heaven We constructed i.e we made it as preserved ceiling as said in another verse- {And We made the sky a protected ceiling} (Q21:32). The word (بِأَيْدٍ) means strength and ability. (وَإِنَّا لَمُوسِعُونَ) means that we have expanded the boundaries and created space between it and the earth and raised it without pillars, independent as it is, with every meaning of the word sky whether referring to the orbits of the stars and planets, or a group of constellations of stars called the galaxy containing hundreds of millions of stars, or meaning layers of space littered with stars, planets or other connotations of the word sky.

 

Scientific commentary on the verse: Concerning the theory of expansion of the universe, astronomers have observed signs that points to the movement of the solar system with the aid of farthest reaching binoculars in a well-organised stream. This reality have been used to prove that the external planets (cosmic root) appear to be far apart from our solar system but they diverge from one another, and on this basis, the universe is not static but grows and expands like the soap-bubbles or balloons expand while the physical objects are maintained on their sizes.

Allah said: (مَا يَعْزُبُ عَنْ رَبِّكَ مِنْ مِثْقَالِ ذَرَّةٍ فِي الأَرْضِ وَلا فِي السَّمَاءِ وَلا أَصْغَرَ مِنْ ذَلِكَ وَلا أَكْبَرَ إِلاَّ فِي كِتَابٍ مُبِينٍ” (يونس آية 61))

And not absent from your Lord is any [part] of an atom’s weight within the earth or within the heaven or [anything] smaller than that or greater but that it is in a clear register. ( Yunus verse 61) .

4 – Existence of Pair in all things: Allah said:

{وَمِنْ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ خَلَقْنَا زَوْجَيْنِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَذَكَّرُونَ} (الذاريات آية 49)

And of all things We created two mates; perhaps you will remember. “ (51: 49)

 

Tafsir of the Quranic verse: Allah reveals in this verse His power and ability for making all creatures in pairs; in types and categories. For example, day and night, male and female, heaven and earth, sun and moon, land and sea, light and darkness, disbelief and faith, death and life, misery and happiness, paradise and fire, sweetness and bitterness, Jinn and man, including animals and plants, in order to remember and learn that the creator is one.

Scientific commentary on the verse: It is known and visible behold that pair is evident in plants and animals in terms of masculinity and femininity and inanimate objects in terms of the elements.

 

5- Stages of development of the fetus in the womb :
Allah declared the creation of Adam as the origin of man, thereafter his progeny was based on the following quranic description:

” وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنْسَانَ مِنْ سُلَالَةٍ مِنْ طِينٍ (12) ثُمَّ جَعَلْنَاهُ نُطْفَةً فِي قَرَارٍ مَكِينٍ (13) ثُمَّ خَلَقْنَا النُّطْفَةَ عَلَقَةً فَخَلَقْنَا الْعَلَقَةَ مُضْغَةً فَخَلَقْنَا الْمُضْغَةَ عِظَامًا فَكَسَوْنَا الْعِظَامَ لَحْمًا ثُمَّ أَنْشَأْنَاهُ خَلْقًا آخَرَ فَتَبَارَكَ اللَّهُ أَحْسَنُ الْخَالِقِينَ ” ( المؤمنون :12- 14)

 

And certainly did We create man from an extract of clay. Then We placed him as a sperm-drop in a firm lodging. Then We made the sperm-drop into a clinging clot, and We made the clot into a lump [of flesh], and We made [from] the lump, bones, and We covered the bones with flesh; then We developed him into another creation. So blessed is Allah, the best of creators.” ( 23: 12-14 )
Dr. Wahbah Zuhailiy in his interpretation said: “this verses show the creation of man, his stages.. as clear evidence of the existence of God and His Oneness. He began the creation of Adam from clay or dust, then made his progeny from the mixture of a sperm from a man and another from a woman, then an embryo is formed- the sperm turn to clot then lump of flesh then to bone, then covered the bones with flesh where appear the features of human, and it becomes a new creation like the first creation by breath of life into it after been inanimate.

Scientist have bear witness to this stages without dispute. Among those that testify to this fact is Prof Keith Moore, who wrote on the Stages of Fetal Development. He was a physician and a professor of Embryology at the University of Toronto, Canada. He stated that everything the Qur’an mentions regarding embryology is better that what the embryologists have said, to the extent that he wrote a book on embryology and reviewed it after ten years after reading the Qur’an and incorporated the scientific facts in the glorious Qur’an on embryology after reading the translation of the Qur’an. His book is titled, The Developing Man. This book is indispensable to every medical student.

 

SECOND KHUTBAH

All praises are due to Allah, may His peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad.

Thereafter,

The United Nations has chosen December 9 as an International Anti-Corruption Day to raise awareness about the problem of corruption and the role of the Convention in combating and preventing it.

Dear Muslims, Islam has preceded others in this area, and if make a recourse to the glorious book we will discover that the word, corruption has been repeated a lot in different manner, showing the strong battle Almighty Allah declared  against corruption, for example:

 

Allah said: “And We conveyed to the Children of Israel in the Scripture that, “You will surely cause corruption on the earth twice, and you will surely reach [a degree of] great haughtiness (17:4) He also said: “And when they had thrown, Moses said, “What you have brought is [only] magic. Indeed, Allah will expose its worthlessness. Indeed, Allah does not amend the work of corrupters.(Yunus: 81). Allah also as well: “And remember Allah during [specific] numbered days. Then whoever hastens [his departure] in two days – there is no sin upon him; and whoever delays [until the third] – there is no sin upon him – for him who fears Allah. And fear Allah and know that unto Him you will be gathered. ( 204 )   And of the people is he whose speech pleases you in worldly life, and he calls Allah to witness as to what is in his heart, yet he is the fiercest of opponents. ( 205 )   And when he goes away, he strives throughout the land to cause corruption therein and destroy crops and animals. And Allah does not like corruption. ( 206 )   And when it is said to him, “Fear Allah,” pride in the sin takes hold of him. Sufficient for him is Hellfire, and how wretched is the resting place.” (Al-baqarah: 204- 206). Allah said: “And cause not corruption upon the earth after its reformation” Most of the commentators said: Do not cause corruption on earth by committing sins and calling to disobedience to God, after the reform of God through the sending of apostles, and explanation of the law.

 

All of these are clear verses of evidence that forbid people from this evil of corruption, whether in words or deeds; every word that involves harm to others is an act of corruption, and every act which includes an attack on the other person is an act of corruption and evil. Thus, Islam declares war against it in the strongest term, and warned every perpetrator of a painful torment in the world and the Hereafter when the Almighty Allah said: ” Corruption has appeared throughout the land and sea by [reason of] what the hands of people have earned so He may let them taste part of [the consequence of] what they have done that perhaps they will return [to righteousness].”

Every verse that talks about corruption centres on prohibition and warning from indulgence in this crime either against the state, and the citizens, in addition to providing information about the consequences that befell the nations of old, in terms of destruction, and torment. Allah said: “and do not commit abuse on the earth, spreading corruption.” (A’raaf: 74)

 

Oh Allah descend peace; flowing with continuous tranquility and security upon Nigeria and all other Muslim nations. O Allah accept the worship of the pilgrims of hajj and Umrah, and grant us all Your pleasure, And the last of our call will be, “Praise to Allah, Lord of the worlds!”
