1-  Allah Almighty's Divine Claims:

The Holy Quran and Islam are filled with scientific statements and notions.  These are statements of Allah Almighty describing how He created things on earth and in the Universe.  What's most amazing is that all of these scientific statements and notions had been proven to be in perfect agreement with science and our modern-day scientific discoveries.  Allah Almighty made the Noble Quran be Prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) Everlasting Divine Miracle and proof for Prophethood.  The Holy Book certainly stood the test of time 1,500 years ago with Its Claims, Prophecies and Miraculous language eloquence, and it does again and again in our day today with Its overwhelming agreement with science and discoveries that were not known to man 1,500 years ago.

Allah Almighty Said: "We will show them Our signs in the Universe and inside their selves, until it will become quite clear to them that it is the truth. Is it not sufficient as regards your Lord that He is a witness over all things?  (The Noble Quran, 41:53)"

With this said, let us what Allah Almighty Said in the Glorious Quran:

Noble Verse(s) 21:104
Yusuf Ali:

[021:104]  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.

Arabic (from right to left):

21:104 يوم نطوي السماء كطي السجل للكتب كما بدانا اول خلق نعيده وعدا علينا انا كنا فاعلين

  

Noble Verse(s) 39:67
Yusuf Ali:

[039:067]  No just estimate have they made of God, such as is due to Him: On the Day of Judgment the whole of the earth will be but His handful, and the heavens will be rolled up in His right hand: Glory to Him! High is He above the Partners they attribute to Him!

Arabic (from right to left):

39:67 وما قدروا الله حق قدره والارض جميعا قبضته يوم القيامة والسماوات مطويات بيمينه سبحانه وتعالى عما يشركون

The Miracles of the Universe's Big Bang and the Cosmic Crunch in the Glorious Quran are discussed in great details at:

  1. The Big Bang Theory and the Cosmic Crunch in the Noble Quran.
      
  2. The Cosmic Web Miracle in the Noble Quran is confirmed by Science!
      
  3. Detailed Analysis from Lisan Al-Arab (this alone is 10 big books) and 7 other dictionaries proving the Scientific Miracles in the Holy Quran in Great Details.
      
  4. Does the Holy Quran state that "shooting stars" stop demons from eavesdropping on Heaven?
      
  5. Swimming in Space by the Gravitational Waves - Mentioned in the Noble Quran and confirmed by Science!

  
But there is another great Miracle which Noble Verses 21:104 and 39:67 covers, and that is the phenomenon that is called the Space Fabric, which was just recently discovered and confirmed by the scientists.  Space, as we know it, is not really a space or a void entity.  It is, instead, filled with space fabric, cosmic webs, a firm balance between planetary, solar and galactic gravities, layers, gases, and a great variety of matter.  Scientists have also confirmed that it is definitely possible to fold space to shorten a distance between two points.  So if two galaxies are a number of billion of light years away from each others, it is possible to fold the space between them to bring them together. 

Now of course, while this is not possible for us, humans, to do in space, especially on a large scale of this kind, but scientists have confirmed that it is definitely doable in space, because space is made of "Space Fabric".  NASA has also just recently confirmed, only 9 years ago, that Space is like a "sheet of paper".  So certainly, when Allah Almighty Said, in Noble Verses 21:104 and 39:67, that He will "roll up" or "fold up" the Universe during the Cosmic Crunch, "as the rolling or folding of scrolls (or paper)", this certainly and without a doubt leaves us with a stunning Divine Statement and Miracle from the Sovereign Creator of this Universe.  Indeed, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty Alone!

The two key Arabic Words in the Noble Verses 21:104 and 39:67 are the following:

  • نطوي
  • كطي
  • مطويات
  • نطوي  (we fold/roll) and مطويات (rolled up) are derived from the root words, طوى (folded) and طوي (to fold).

    1-  According to Google's Arabic-English online dictionary, طوى means:

    1. folded.
    2. fold.
    3. roll up.
    4. lap.

    2-  According to Arabic-English dictionary the Hans Wehr dictionary [5], page 576, طوى means:

    1. to fold
    2. fold up
    3. fold in
    4. fold over
    5. fold under
    6. roll up
    7. wrap up
    8. enwrap
    9. envelop
    10. pleat

      

      

    2-  The Scientific Proofs:

    The following Scientific Proofs further demonstrate the Glorious Quran's Divine Miracle:

    "Einstein was right: space and time bend

    Ninety years after he expounded his famous theory, a $700m Nasa probe has proved that the universe behaves as he said. Now the race is on to show that the other half of relativity also works

    Under his name in the Oxford English Dictionary is the simple definition: genius. Yet for decades physicists have been asking the question: did Albert Einstein get it wrong? After half a century, seven cancellations and $700m, a mission to test his theory about the universe has finally confirmed that the man was a mastermind....."

    Article #3:

    The following detailed articles from NASA give ample Scientific data, proofs, and pictures to Einstein's theory:

    1. http://rst.gsfc.nasa.gov/Sect20/preface.html:
        
      Gravity, on the grand scale (stars and galaxies), can be conceived as a force field that influences geometry: in other words, gravity bends or distorts the fabric of spacetime. Matter/energy determines the curvature of spacetime and is said to "warp" space (this can be visualized as follows: consider a fastened rubber sheet on which a grid pattern is drawn; a heavy object, such as a round rock, if allowed to drop on the sheet, will create a depression and distort the grid around that indentation). This can be visualized in the drawing below:
        
      The warping of space "fabric" by the presence of a large object containing a significant quantity of mass; note the light bending effect,


       

    2. http://rst.gsfc.nasa.gov/Sect20/A1.html:
        
      The behavior of these forces in the earliest moments of the Big Bang was critical to the construction and development of the Universe as we perceive it today. Gravity in particular controls the ultimate fate of the Universe's expansion (see below) and formation of stars and galactic clusters. (According to Einsteinian Relativity, gravity, which we intuitively perceive as attractive forces between masses, is a fundamental geometric property of spacetime that depends closely on the curvature of space, such that concentrations of matter can "bend" space itself; Einstein and others have predicted the existence of gravitational waves that interact with matter; see the Preface for additional treatment). For all its importance, it is surprising that gravity is by far the weakest of the four primary forces. Its role in keeping macro-matter together and controlling how celestial bodies maintain their orbits is just that it becomes the strong, action-at-a-distance force left whenever the other forces are electrically neutral and have influence only out to very short distances.
      ................
        
      Einstein, in particular, showed that any three-dimensional expansion must also consider the effects of the fourth dimension - time - to account for the behaviour of light traveling great distances in a vast "volume" (without known boundaries) making up what we conceive of as "space". He also deduced that space (within the Universe) must be curved (and light and other radiation will therefore follow curved paths as the shortest distance between widely separated points) and would, in his view, expand dynamically in a 4-dimensional spherical geometry (a spacetime dimensionality). (Einstein, at least in his early thinking, also considered the Universe to be finite and eternal; he did not take a firm stand on its overall shape.) As was considered in the Preface, the internal curvature of space was deduced by Einstein to be the consequence of the interaction between matter (responsible for gravity) and the "fabric" of space. These two diagrams depict this:
        
      Interaction of Matter and Space geometry.
        
      The warping of flat space (indicated as a 2-dimensional grid).

      

      

    3-  Conclusion:

    Again, the Holy Quran and Islam are filled with scientific statements and notions.  These are statements of Allah Almighty describing how He created things on earth and in the Universe.  What's most amazing is that all of these scientific statements and notions had been proven to be in perfect agreement with science and our modern-day scientific discoveries.  Allah Almighty made the Noble Quran be Prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) Everlasting Divine Miracle and proof for Prophethood.  The Holy Book certainly stood the test of time 1,500 years ago with Its Claims, Prophecies and Miraculous language eloquence, and it does again and again in our day today with Its overwhelming agreement with science and discoveries that were not known to man 1,500 years ago.

    Allah Almighty Said: "We will show them Our signs in the Universe and inside their selves, until it will become quite clear to them that it is the truth. Is it not sufficient as regards your Lord that He is a witness over all things?  (The Noble Quran, 41:53)"

    Allah Almighty's Divine Claim about the space having the ability to fold or be folded or rolled up is indeed a Miraculous Statement that was only recently confirmed by Science.  Again and again, the Glorious Quran is proven, without any doubt, to be the True and Living Word of the Sovereign GOD Almighty of the Universe.

    Indeed, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty Alone for making the Noble Quran and the Divine Inspirations that He Sent to Prophet Muhammad be the Perfect and Everlasting Miracle, for us humans, out of all of His Divine Miracles!  And may Allah Almighty send His Peace, Mercy and Blessings upon our Beloved and Blessed Prophet, Teacher and Role Model, Muhammad.  Ameen.
