The Big Bang - Among the miracles of the Quran


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.

What the Holy Quran Says: -

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 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.

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.
