The Big Bang - Among Miracles The Holy Quran Offers

Imagine that our vast universe started from a tiny dense spot

This latest blog entry is a big shift from my usual style of writing. Well I have not yet given up the battle confronting the joker boys. When I launched an attack on the very last day of 2008, I could see no single effort taken by setiakawan boys to defend themselves. So I've submitted myself to believe they are a group of cowards that goes very well with a tag line Pussycat Boys.

I'm now writing this post for a very good reason, but certainly not because I've taken 180 degree turn. Lately the blogosphere has been crowded with articles that are happily vilifying the image of our Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. Of course there are responses from Muslim bloggers, most of them are full of emotion and anger.

However I'm attracted to a call written by a distinguished blogger Dato' Sakmongkol, one of the Four Pahang Cyber Horsemen. In his article entitled Year Nine into 21st Century, he says that and I quote:

"And who are these kayus who holler and howl when there are blogs blighting the image of the Muslim Prophet? Then you write good things about the prophet while debunking the ideas parlayed by the ‘evildoers’. The problem is you don’t want to read much less write."

Well it is very true Dato', most of us including myself prefer to react emotionally rather than intellectually. Having being challenged in such manner, I prefer to answer to the call. What I am going to write is not much about the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w himself but the scientific accuracy of his revelation, the Holy Quran.

The Prophet's revelation, the Holy Quran was written more than 1400 years ago where discipline of Science was hardly known to many in Arab tribal communities. However recent scientific discoveries turn be in complete agreement with verses in the Holy Quran, and one of them is the Theory of Big Bang.

A mega explosion from a tiny dense spot,
that is what Big Bang all about


The Big Bang is the cosmological model of the universe that is best supported by all lines of scientific evidence and observation. As used by scientists, the term Big Bang generally refers to the idea that the universe has expanded from a single primordial hot and dense spot at some finite time in the past, and continues to expand to this day.

So the question now is Does the Holy Quran mention the Big Bang? Prior to science and more than fourteen hundred years ago , The Holy Quran explains the beginning of the creation of the universe. Allah says in the Holy Quran what means

Do not the unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together(sewn together) as one Unit of Creation and then We unstitched (clove them ) and that We made from water every living thing? So will they not believe? (Qur'an, 21:30)

First, the verse starts with a prophecy that has come true; it states that those who will discover how the universe came into being will be among the disbelievers and that prophecy was fulfilled because those who discovered this fact were not Muslims.

The verse also starts with a call to the disbelievers who based their atheism on the claim that universe is eternal to think over again and understand what science - by the grace of Allah - will discover concerning the creation of the universe, it emphatically states that disbelievers will discover how the creation come into being, the word "Will" means that this will happen in the future …it is so wonderful that the Quran predicts whom will discover.


If tiny spots on the balloon are galactic bodies, the expanding balloon makes the distance between spots become further apart

The expanding universe was first discovered by an American astronomer Hubble while was making observations with his sophisticated telescope in the Mount Wilson observatory. He observed that galaxies were receding from each other, which proved that the universe was expanding. In answer to those who said they could not believe in things their eyes had not witnessed, Hubble’s discovery led to the following declaration: “Now that you see it, you have got to believe it.”

As a matter of fact the Holy Quran has already revealed to Muhammad s.a.w the phenomenon of expanding universe more than 1400 years ago in one of the verses as below:

And it is We Who have constructed the heaven with might, and it is We Who are steadily expanding it. (Quran, 51:47)

To achieve the Quran’s revelation of this fact 1400 years ago, man would have needed access to the assistance of accumulated scientific data acquired throughout long years and to sophisticated telescopes. When people claim that science and religion oppose each other, the Quran furnishes answers to the most complicated scientific problems. Observations made by sophisticated telescopes today confirm the statements of the Holy Quran.


If prophet Muhammad s.a.w had been impostor or counterfeiter, how did he dare to indulge himself in matters that didn't concern the people of his age?

Who told Muhammad s.a.w these accurate scientific facts that science only reached this century?

What benefits could he get by claiming things like this if he is impostor?

How can he be sure that science won't come some day to refute these claims , if he had been impostor?

These scientific facts that are in the Quran testify to Muhammad s.a.w true prophethood and testify to the divine source of the Holy and refute the atheistic claims.

Our vast galaxy, the Milky Way. If the whole universe is the size of the earth, our galaxy will be the size of a CD.

Enjoy your weekend everyone and Wassalam.
