AUDIOs from Dr. Zaghlool Al-Najjar

Iron was sent down to earth from space.

The origins of the Universe, Big Bang theory, Cosmic Crunch, and the creation of the SECOND EARTH after the second Big Bang in the Noble Quran and Science.  Also, Dr. Zaghlool's scientific explanation of the earth and heaven coming to Allah Almighty "willingly or unwillingly" and how each celestial object behaves differently depending on its mass.

The Cosmic Crunch and the creation of the second Universe and second earth.

Time and the Speed of Light precisely calculated and mentioned in the Noble Quran.

     

    

    

How could Allah create the world in 6 days if science has proved that the world and universe took millions of years to make?

Let us look at Noble Verse 7:54 "Your Guardian-Lord Is Allah, Who created the heavens and the earth in six days, then He established Himself on the Throne (of authority):  He draweth the night as a veil O'er the day, each seeking the other in rapid succession:  He created the sun, the moon, and the stars, (all) governed by laws under His command.  Is it not His to create and to govern?  Blessed be Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds!"  According to the Noble Quran, the initial stage of the Universe was created in six days.  But however, the Universe is not static.  It is dynamic and constantly changing and expanding.

Let us look at Noble Verse 51:47 "And the firmament, We constructed with power and skill and verily We are expanding it.The Universe according to the Noble Quran will keep expanding and changing until the Day of Judgment.

As'salamu Alaikum dear brothers,

I have thoroughly demonstrated the Glorious Quran's ample Scientific Notions using 7 dictionaries (Lisan Al-Arab among them) at: http://www.answering-christianity.com/detailed_meanings_of_scientific_words_in_verses.htm.

As to the Universe Expanding, the Arabic Word used by Allah Almighty is MOUSI'OONA (موسعون expanding) in Noble Verse 51:47, which is a verb of the noun WAASI'A (واسع vast).  Now some might say that MOUSI'OONA only means "WE MADE IT VAST", and is not a contineous process.  I respond to them by saying that the word would then have to be AWSA'NA (أوسعنا expanded or made bigger), and not the continueous action and verb MOUSI'OONA (موسعون expanding).  MOUSI'OONA is clearly a verb that refers to a continuing expansion, or a happening and ongoing expansion.  

Let me give you this example, from among many, that will further prove this beyond any doubt, insha'Allah.  As a Muslim, you are familiar with the following Arabic terms:

1-  Tawheed (توحيد The concept of Oneness, which implies Oneness of Allah Almighty).

2-  Wahid (واحد One, and it could either mean the number one, or Allah Almighty is One).

3-  Muwahhid (موحد Islamically implies that one who declares or believes that Allah Almighty is One, or in Arabic it also means a person who unites or makes a group as one).

Muwahhid موحد , in the Islamic context here, means that one who believes in the One True GOD Almighty, and CONTINUES TO BELIEVE IN GOD ALMIGHTY.  It's a never-ending belief.  It's a belief that only stops when the person declares otherwise.

Muwahhid موحد , in the Arabic context here, also means one who IS KEEPING THE UNITY!  Me for instance keeping all fights on this board out to keep the Muslims in love and unity with each others makes me A MUWAHHID OF THE PEOPLE, under Islam, on this board.  And it's a task that is ongoing, that is continuing.

Similarly, the noun WAASI'A واسع is on the same linguistic balance as Wahid, and the ongoing Muwahhid موحد is on the same linguistic balance as MOUSI'A موسع , which is a plural verb of MOUSI'OONA موسعون .  So MOUSI'OONA here means an ongoing expansion, as in MUWAHHID here means an ongoing uniter and keeper of the unity and oneness of the group.

In Arabic, we have a linguistic balance, which basically helps to define how the word is to be read, and what it means, and what type it is (noun, verb, adjective adverb, etc....).

Another great example I can give you is the following two Arabic words:

1-  MUHAYMIN (مهيمن, dominating over, ruling over, having an ongoing authority over, which was used for the Noble Quran being مهيمن over all previous Scriptures.  See Noble Verse 5:48).

2-  HAYMANA (هيمن, which can be both a noun and a simple past, which means dominance (noun) or dominated or ruled over (simple past)).

And like above, MUHAYMIN is on the same linguistic balance as MOUSI'A موسع , which is a plural verb of MOUSI'OONA موسعون .  Just like MUHAYMIN means the Quran having a never-ending Authority over all previous Scriptures until Allah Almighty makes It expire, in Noble Verse 5:48, MOUSI'OONA also means an ongoing and never-ending expansion of the Universe until Allah Almighty causes the Cosmic Crunch, which is also mentioned in the Glorious Quran:

"The Day that We roll up the heavens like a scroll rolled up for books (completed),- even as We produced the first creation, so shall We produce a new one: a promise We have undertaken: truly shall We fulfill it.  (The Noble Quran, 21:104)" 

And NASA has confirmed that:

1-  There will be indeed a Cosmic Crunch when our ever expanding Universe finally collapses.

2-  That our Universe is flat like a sheet of paper:

"The simplest version of the inflationary theory, an extension of the Big Bang theory, predicts that the density of the universe is very close to the critical density, and that the geometry of the universe is flat, like a sheet of paper. That is the result confirmed by the WMAP science." (http://map.gsfc.nasa.gov/universe/uni_shape.html)

Some of Allah Almighty's Divine Attributes:

Another important point to note here is that Allah Almighty's Holy Names, which are also known as Allah Almighty's Divine Attributes, are NEVER-ENDING in existence and authority, and many of them are on the same linguistic balance as MOUSI'OONA.  By the way, the "A" in MOUSI'OONA is a vowel character, and not a letter.  So the Word is MOUSI'OON.  Consider the following Holy Names:

1-  AL-MUHAYMIN, the Dominant over all things, or the Protector.

2-  AL-MU'MIN, the Guardian Of Faith.

3-  AL-MUSAWWIR, the Fashioner.

4-  AL-MUTAKABBIR, the Majestic.

5-  AL-MUTHILL, the Dishonourer.

6-  AL-MUJEEB, the Responsive.

7-  AL-MUTA'ALI, the Most Exalted.

There are ample more Holy Names, but I think you get the picture.  Please visit: Allah Almighty's 99 Holy Names 


I challenge any Arab, Muslim or non, to refute this.  Bring me their best arguments!  I already gave you the best one that was ever presented to me by a non-Muslim Arab, and how easily it was refuted.

Furthermore, have you guys look at the Numerical, and Embryological (to say the least) Miracles in the Glorious Quran?  What metaphoric or figurative speech are the deniers of the Quran's Miracles talking about when they dismiss them with shallow statements?  Please visit the following link and thoroughly go through it:

www.answering-christianity.com/ac20.htm#links

I openly challenge Muslims before non-Muslims to debate me here on any specific subject or point regarding this area.  This is a humble challenge, and not hostile.  The Truth of the Glorious Quran is irrefutable.  Please do not follow Islam blindly.  Bring your best or worst arguments that are bothering you here, and let's see if the Quran stands or falls.  Nothing personal, dear brothers.

I hope this helps, insha'Allah.

Take care,
Osama Abdallah

the meaning of MOUSI'OONA (موسعون ) in Noble Verse 51:47 ,could be understood in two ways .. 

either " expanding"  which is the usual meaning of the word ,and it could mean " we are able " as well...

...........................

Has a single muslim before 1920 translated it as expanding ?

Yes of course ...

the meaning according to some old Quranic tafsir (the following is the arabic quotes are translated into English):

1- Tafsir muqatel ibn solaiman (year AD 767)

means: we are able to expand it as we want.

 تفسير مقاتل بن سليمان/ مقاتل بن سليمان (ت 150 هـ
{ وَإِنَّا لَمُوسِعُونَ } [آية: 47] يعني نحن قادرون على أن نوسعها كما نريد 


2- Tafsir Bahr alolum , (year 985)
means: we are able to expand it as we will.

(فسير بحر العلوم/ السمرقندي

{ وَإِنَّا لَمُوسِعُونَ } يعني نحن قادرون على أن نوسعها كما نريد


3- Tafsir alfayruz abadi (year 1414)

means : we we are expanding it as we will.

الثاني: لموسعون السماء، قاله ابن زيد.

الثالث: لقادرون على الاتساع بأكثر من اتساع السماء.


5 - Tafsir Alqasemy : (year 1913 )

means: we are able to expand it, more than it is already expanded.

 تفسير محاسن التأويل / محمد جمال الدين القاسمي (ت 1332هـ
 { وَإِنَّا لَمُوسِعُونَ } أي: لقادرون على الإيساع، كما أوسعنا بناءها


6- Tafsir Altabarani (year 970)

means :we expand the heaven in every direction.

 تفسير التفسير الكبير / للإمام الطبراني (ت 360 ـ)

 { وَإِنَّا لَمُوسِعُونَ }؛ في السَّماء على الأرضِ في كلِّ جهاتٍ


Etc ,etc,etc .......................

 

The Universe will also shrink:  "The Day that We roll up the heavens like a scroll rolled up for books (completed),- even as We produced the first creation, so shall We produce a new one: a promise We have undertaken: truly shall We fulfil it.  (The Noble Quran, 21:104)"

The Galaxies of the Universe will all explode:  "And when the heaven splitteth asunder and becometh ROSY-LIKE PAINT(The Noble Quran, 55:37)"

[The Complete Story of the Universe]
"The universe starts with a Big Bang, expands to a maximum dimension, then recontracts and collapses (to the Big Crunch); no more awe-inspiring prediction was ever made." Quotation from Charles W. Misner, Kip S. Thorne and John A. Wheeler in "Gravitation", W. H. Freeman, San Francisco, 1973, page 1196.

The Expansion of the Universe


Edwin Hubble with his giant telescope

In the Qur'an, which was revealed 14 centuries ago at a time when the science of astronomy was still primitive, the expansion of the universe was described like this:

"And it is We who have constructed the heaven with might, and verily, it is We who are steadily expanding it."
(The Qur'an, 51:47)

The word "heaven", as stated in this verse, is used in various places in the Qur'an with the meaning of space and universe. Here again, the word is used with this meaning. In other words, in the Qur'an it is revealed that the universe "expands". And this is the very conclusion that science has reached today.


Georges Lemaitre

Until the dawn of the 20th century, the only view prevailing in the world of science was that "the universe has a constant nature and it has existed since infinite time". The research, observations, and calculations carried out by means of modern technology, however, have revealed that the universe in fact had a beginning, and that it constantly "expands".

At the beginning of the 20th century, the Russian physicist Alexander Friedmann and the Belgian cosmologist Georges Lemaitre theoretically calculated that the universe is in constant motion and that it is expanding.

This fact was proved also by observational data in 1929. While observing the sky with a telescope, Edwin Hubble, the American astronomer, discovered that the stars and galaxies were constantly moving away from each other. A universe where everything constantly moves away from everything else implied a constantly expanding universe. The observations carried out in the following years verified that the universe is constantly expanding. This fact was explained in the Qur'an when that was still unknown to anyone. This is because the Qur'an is the word of God, the Creator, and the Ruler of the entire universe.


From the moment of the big bang, the universe has been constantly expanding at a great speed. Scientists compare the expanding universe to the surface of a balloon that is inflated.

 

Continuing with my article....

Allah Almighty never gave any number for the Universe's age.  Muslims do not believe that humans for instance existed only 5,000 years ago and will die in year 2000 or 2059 as many Christians believe. 

Allah Almighty was very accurate in His claims in the Noble Quran.  For instance, science proved that the metal "iron" was not created from earthly material or reactions.  Iron was sent by burning stars traveling through space that had collided with earth!  When those stars collided with earth and their melted metals cooled down and changed from liquid burned/melted metals to hard solid metals, they formed the metal of what we call today iron.

Let us look at Noble Verse 57:25 "We sent aforetime Our messengers with clear signs and sent down them the Book and the Balance (of right and wrong), that men may stand forth in justice; and We sent down iron, in which is (material for) Mighty war, as well as many benefits for mankind, that Allah may test who it is that will help, unseen, Him and His messengers: For Allah is Full of strength, exalted in Might (And able to enforce His Will)."
