Scientists Declaration about The Holy Quran and Islam-Durja Rao

Written by Durja Rao

Sheikh Zindanī presented to Prof. Rao many verses dealing with his area of specialisation, and asked: "What do you think ofrepparttar existence ofrepparttar 127684 scientific information inrepparttar 127685 Qur'ān? How could Prophet Muhammad have known about these facts fourteen centuries ago?"

"It is difficult to imagine that this type of knowledge was existing at that time, around 1400 years back. May be some ofrepparttar 127686 things they have simple idea about, but to describe those things in great detail is very difficult. So this is definitely not simple human knowledge. A normal human being cannot explain this phenomenon in that much detail. So, I thoughtrepparttar 127687 information must have come from a supernatural source."

"I find it very interesting that this sort of information is inrepparttar 127688 ancient scriptures ofrepparttar 127689 Holy Qur'ān, and I have no way of knowing where they would have come from. But I think it is extremely interesting that they are there and this work is going on to discover it,repparttar 127690 meaning of some ofrepparttar 127691 passages."

And when he was asked aboutrepparttar 127692 source ofrepparttar 127693 Qur'ān, he replied, "Well, I would think it must berepparttar 127694 divine being."

THE PROPORTION OF RAIN One ofrepparttar items of information given inrepparttar 127683 Qur'an about rain is that it is sent down to Earth in due measure. This is mentioned in Sura Zukhruf as follows; It is He who sends down water in due measure fromrepparttar 127684 sky by which We bring a dead land back to life. That is how you too will be raised (fromrepparttar 127685 dead). (The Qur'an, 43:11) This measured quantity in rain has again been discovered by modern research. It is estimated that in one second, approximately 16 million tons of water evaporates fromrepparttar 127686 Earth. This figure amounts to 513 trillion tons of water in one year. This number is equal torepparttar 127687 amount of rain that falls onrepparttar 127688 Earth in a year. This means that water continuously circulates in a balanced cycle, in a "measure". Life on Earth depends on this water cycle. Even if people used allrepparttar 127689 available technology inrepparttar 127690 world, they would not be able to reproduce this cycle artificially. Even a minor deviation in this equilibrium would very soon give rise to a major ecological imbalance that would bring aboutrepparttar 127691 end of life on Earth. Yet, this never happens, and rain keeps falling every year in exactlyrepparttar 127692 same quantity just as revealed inrepparttar 127693 Qur'an.

THE FORMATION OF RAIN How rain forms remained a great mystery for a long time. Only after weather radar was invented was it possible to discoverrepparttar 127694 stages by which rain is formed. According to this,repparttar 127695 formation of rain takes place in three stages. First,repparttar 127696 "raw material" of rain rises up intorepparttar 127697 air withrepparttar 127698 wind. Later, clouds are formed, and finally raindrops appear. The Qur'an's account ofrepparttar 127699 formation of rain refers exactly to this process. In one verse, this formation is described in this way: It is God Who sendsrepparttar 127700 winds which stir up clouds which He spreads aboutrepparttar 127701 sky however He wills. He forms them into dark clumps and you seerepparttar 127702 rain come pouring out fromrepparttar 127703 middle of them. When He makes it fall on those of His slaves He wills, they rejoice. (The Qur'an, 30:48) Now, let us examine these three stages outlined inrepparttar 127704 verse more technically.

FIRST STAGE: " It is God Who sendsrepparttar 127705 winds..." Countless air bubbles formed byrepparttar 127706 foaming ofrepparttar 127707 oceans continuously burst and cause water particles to be ejected towardsrepparttar 127708 sky. These particles, which are rich in salt, are then carried away by winds and rise upward inrepparttar 127709 atmosphere. These particles, which are called aerosols, function as water traps, and form cloud drops by collecting aroundrepparttar 127710 water vapour themselves, which rises fromrepparttar 127711 seas as tiny droplets.

SECOND STAGE: ".... which stir up clouds which He spreads aboutrepparttar 127712 sky however He wills. He forms them into dark clumps..." The clouds are formed from water vapour that condenses aroundrepparttar 127713 salt crystals or dust particles inrepparttar 127714 air. Becauserepparttar 127715 water droplets in these clouds are very small (with a diameter between 0.01 and 0.02 mm),repparttar 127716 clouds are suspended inrepparttar 127717 air, and spread acrossrepparttar 127718 sky. Thus,repparttar 127719 sky is covered in clouds.
