THE SPLITTING ASUNDER OF "THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH" Another verse about creation of heavens is as follows: Do not Unbelievers see that heavens and earth were joined together (as one unit of creation), before We clove them asunder, and We made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe? (The Qur'an, 21:30) The word ratq translated as "sewn to" means "mixed in each, blended" in Arabic dictionaries. It is used to refer to two different substances that make up a whole. The phrase "we unstitched" is verb fataqa in Arabic and implies that something comes into being by tearing apart or destroying structure of ratq. The sprouting of a seed from soil is one of actions to which this verb is applied. Let us take a look at verse again with this knowledge in mind. In verse, sky and earth are at first subject to status of ratq. They are separated (fataqa) with one coming out of other. Intriguingly, when we remember first moments of Big Bang, we see that a single point included all matter in universe. In other words, everything, including "the heavens and earth" which were not created yet, were included in this point in a condition of ratq. This point exploded violently, causing its matter to fataqa and in process created structure of whole universe. When we compare expressions in verse with scientific findings, we see that they are in perfect agreement with each other. Interestingly enough, these findings were not arrived at until 20th century. ORBITS While referring to Sun and Moon in Qur'an, it is emphasized that each moves in a definite orbit. It is He Who created night and day, and sun and moon. They swim along, each in an orbit. (The Qur'an, 21:33) It is mentioned in another verse, too, that Sun is not static but moves in a definite orbit: And sun runs to its resting place. That is decree of Almighty, All-Knowing. (The Qur'an, 36:38) These facts communicated in Qur'an have been discovered by astronomical observations in our age. According to calculations of experts on astronomy, Sun is traveling at enormous speed of 720,000 kilometers an hour in direction of star Vega in a particular orbit called Solar Apex. This means that sun travels roughly 17,280,000 kilometers a day. Along with Sun, and all planets and satellites within gravitational system of Sun also travel same distance. In addition, all stars in universe are in a similar planned motion. That entire universe is full of paths and orbits such as this one, is written in Qur'an as follows: By sky full of paths and orbits. (The Qur'an, 51:7) There are about 200 billion galaxies in universe, consisting of nearly 200 billion stars in each. Most of these stars have planets, and most of those planets have satellites. All of these heavenly bodies move in very precisely computed orbits. For millions of years, each has been "swimming" along in its own orbit in perfect harmony and order with all others. Moreover, many comets also move along in orbits determined for them. The orbits in universe do not only belong to celestial bodies. The galaxies also travel at enormous speeds in computed, planned orbits. During these movements, none of these celestial bodies cuts across another's path, or collides with another. Surely at time Qur'an was revealed, mankind did not possess today's telescopes or advanced observation technologies to observe millions of kilometres of space, nor modern knowledge of physics or astronomy. Therefore, at that time, it was not possible to determine scientifically that space is "full of paths and orbits" as stated in verse. However, this was openly declared to us in Qur'an that was revealed at that time:–because Qur'an is word of God.

The Piercing StarWritten by Mohammad Ali Abid

by millions of years. In early years of 1970s astronomers succeeded to observe many stars which share characteristics of sending regular wireless signs. These signs are highly accurate and reach earth XXXXXXXX and each sign continues for a fraction of second and get repeated every second or more. Then who has named these stars which release sign beating stars? The piercing star? Then its characteristics would be signs which Allah swears with. The beating star is a cosmic body which has two characteristics. It is a star and at same time it is a piercing body. If we compare it with any other cosmic body we will find that neotronic star fulfills characteristics of being a star, a beating star and a piercing star. It has regular beatings and knockings, tick … tick … tick and hence it is similar to those pips which have been received by scientists. The source of these pips and ticks was neotronic star. The scientists found that newly born neotronic star has high speed signs due to its high speed rotation and energy whereas old neotronic star has slow speed signs in wide span of times due to reduction in its speed and energy as well as rotation. Allah, elevated, gave this star a special status and sweared by it. So greatness of swearing is indicated by greatness of object sacred by. Its is well known that density among other cosmic bodies and its weight is more than that of earth or any other cosmic body. Inspite of its small size, neotronic star, it is a piercing star. We may imagine what would happen to earth or any other cosmic body if this neotronic star is put on it or if it crashes down on it. Even sun would not bear it. The number of neotronic stars in our galaxy “Milky Way” are estimated as one hundred thousands of beating, piercing neotronic stars. The sky is full of these stars and therefore Allah sweared by it. Everyself has a preserver which observes it and account for it. There is a similarity between beater and peircer. It is one of miraculous nature of Quran that it has described a fact, in a few expressive and impressive words, however this fact has been discovered now after fourteen centuries of revelation of Quran. After describing this star as peircer and beater then Quran refers to human self which has been an observer, a keeper who account for each movement of even heart beating of eye sight which pierces various objects and indicates human intentions. Thus there is a metamorphic similarity between piercing beating neotronic star which rotates depth of skies and preserving and keeping self which realizes human nature in its various aspects. This reveal that Allah, elevated, has revealed Quran to His Prophet Mohammed (PBUH). The Quran is full of so many aspects of our life and planets but Herman intellect is still incapable of realizing these miracles revealed by Quran. Source : “Quranic Verses in light of Science”
