Scientists Declaration about The Holy Quran and Islam-Durja Rao

"That is a difficult question which I have been thinking about since our discussion here. I am impressed at how remarkably some ofrepparttar ancient writings seem to correspond to modern and recent Astronomy. I am not a sufficient scholar of human history to project myself completely and reliably intorepparttar 127684 circumstances that 1400 years ago would have prevailed.

Certainly, I would like to leave it at that, that what we have seen is remarkable, it may or may not admit of scientific explanation, there may well have to be something beyond what we understand as ordinary human experience to account forrepparttar 127685 writings that we have seen."

"I say, I am very much impressed by finding true astronomical facts in Qur'ân, and for us modern astronomers have been studying very small piece ofrepparttar 127686 universe. We have concentrated our efforts for understanding of very small part. Because by using telescopes, we can see only very few parts ofrepparttar 127687 sky without thinking aboutrepparttar 127688 whole universe. So by reading Qur'ân and by answering torepparttar 127689 questions, I think I can find my future way for investigation ofrepparttar 127690 universe."

THIRD STAGE: "…and you seerepparttar rain come pouring our fromrepparttar 127683 middle of them" The water particles that surround salt crystals and dust particles thicken and form raindrops, so, drops that become heavier thanrepparttar 127684 air leaverepparttar 127685 clouds and start to fall torepparttar 127686 ground as rain. As we have seen, every stage inrepparttar 127687 formation of rain is related inrepparttar 127688 verses ofrepparttar 127689 Qur'an. Furthermore, these stages are explained in exactlyrepparttar 127690 right sequence. Just as with many other natural phenomena onrepparttar 127691 Earth, God givesrepparttar 127692 most correct explanation of this phenomenon as well, and made it known to people inrepparttar 127693 Qur'an centuries before it was discovered. In another verse,repparttar 127694 following information is given aboutrepparttar 127695 formation of rain: Have you not seen how God drives alongrepparttar 127696 clouds, then joins them together, then makes them into a stack, and then you seerepparttar 127697 rain come out of it? And He sends down fromrepparttar 127698 sky mountain masses (of clouds) with cold hail in them, striking with it anyone He wills and averting it from anyone He wills. The brightness of His lightning almost blindsrepparttar 127699 sight. (The Qur'an, 24:43) Scientists studying cloud types came across surprising results regardingrepparttar 127700 formation of rain clouds. Rain clouds are formed and shaped according to definite systems and stages. The formation stages of cumulonimbus, one kind of rain cloud, are these:

1.STAGE, Being driven along: Clouds are carried along, that is, they are driven along, byrepparttar 127701 wind. 2.STAGE, Joining: Then, small clouds (cumulus clouds) driven along byrepparttar 127702 wind join together, forming a larger cloud.9 3.STAGE, Stacking: Whenrepparttar 127703 small clouds join together, updrafts withinrepparttar 127704 larger cloud increase. The updrafts nearrepparttar 127705 centre ofrepparttar 127706 cloud are stronger than those nearrepparttar 127707 edges. These updrafts causerepparttar 127708 cloud body to grow vertically, sorepparttar 127709 cloud is stacked up. This vertical growth causesrepparttar 127710 cloud body to stretch into cooler regions ofrepparttar 127711 atmosphere, where drops of water and hail formulate and begin to grow larger and larger. When these drops of water and hail become too heavy forrepparttar 127712 updrafts to support them, they begin to fall fromrepparttar 127713 cloud as rain, hail, etc.10 We must remember that meteorologists have only recently come to know these details of cloud formation, structure and function, by using advanced equipment like planes, satellites, computers etc. It is evident that God has given us a piece of information that could not have been known 1,400 years ago.
