The Ozone layer is able to heal itself from damage - mentioned in the Noble Quran and confirmed by science!
The sections of this article are:
1- The Noble Quran's claim about the Ozone layer able to heal itself.
- Man can eliminate himself, but he can't eliminate mother nature!
2- The Scientific proofs.
1- The Noble Quran's claim about the Ozone layer able to heal itself:
The Noble Quran is 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.
With this said, let us first look at what our Beloved and Blessed Prophet, Muhammad, said regarding the Scientific Notions in the Noble Quran:
Narrated Abu Huraira: "I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "I have been sent with Jawami al-Kalim (i.e., the shortest expression carrying the widest meanings), and I was made victorious with awe (caste into the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the earth were brought to me and were put in my hand." Muhammad said, Jawami'-al-Kalim means that Allah expresses in one or two statements or thereabouts the numerous matters that used to be written in the books revealed before (the coming of) the Prophet. (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Interpretation of Dreams, Volume 9, Book 87, Number 141)"
As we clearly see, the Prophet said that he was sent to reveal pithy words that encompass many meanings and topics, which are short in quantity and rich in meanings and interpretations.
In a previous article, I have thoroughly demonstrated using several Noble Verses how Allah Almighty talked about our Ozone layer being a raised and protective roof above earth. In this article, we will see how the Scientific Notion that Allah Almighty used for the Ozone layer seems to also state the earth's Ozone layer is capable of healing itself from any damage that might happen to it, either from man or from space.
To a simple bedouin such as our Beloved and Blessed Prophet, Role Model and Teacher, Muhammad, Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon him, who lived in Arabia 1,500 years ago, looking up in the sky during the day and seeing it blue with white clouds, and looking at it at night and seeing it black with bright dots of stars, wouldn't think in a million years (if he were to live in his same status) that there is an actual protective layer (what we call today the Ozone layer) covering the entire planet earth!!!
Ozone is a roof, clouds aren't:
Obviously, the Noble Verses below are not talking about clouds, because clouds are scattered in the air, while Allah Almighty Said that He made the sky (Ozone) a "raised" and "protected roof"! A roof is a one solid piece that covers, shelters and protects the things under it.
Let us look at what Allah Almighty Said in the Noble Quran:
|Noble Verse(s) 21:32|
Dr. Munir Munshey (one of
[021:032] And (for you), We deemed the sky to be a safe and secure ceiling. Yet, these are the signs they overlook!
Transliteration:[021:032] WajaAAalna alssamaa saqfan mahfoothan wahum AAan ayatiha muAAridoona
Arabic (from right to left):21:32 وجعلنا السماء سقفا محفوظا وهم عن اياتها معرضون
Sher Ali:[021:032] And WE have made the heaven a roof, well-protected, yet they turn away from its Signs.
Shakir:[021:032] And We have made the heaven a guarded canopy and (yet) they turn aside from its signs.
Pickthall:[021:032] And we have made the sky a roof withheld (from them). Yet they turn away from its portents.
Sale:[021:032] And We made the heaven a roof well supported. Yet they turn aside from the signs thereof, not considering that they are the workmanship of God.
Muhammad Al-Hilali & Muhsin Khan:[021:032] And We have made the heaven a roof, safe and well guarded. Yet they turn away from its signs (i.e. sun, moon, winds, clouds, etc.).
Palmer:[021:032] and we made the heaven a guarded roof; yet from our signs they turn aside!
Arberry:[021:032] and We set up the heaven as a roof well-protected; yet still from Our signs they are turning away.
Khalifa: (why is he here?)[021:032] And we rendered the sky a guarded ceiling. Yet, they are totally oblivious to all the portents therein.
Rodwell:[021:032] And we made the heaven a roof strongly upholden; yet turn they away from its signs.
Please visit: The Ozone layer is a protective ceiling to earth, PRECISELY mentioned in the Noble Quran and confirmed by Science! to see A LOT MORE Noble Verses regarding our Ozone layer being and "elevated ceiling", and its protection as a roof.
As we clearly and indisputably see, Allah Almighty created our sky/heaven to be a protective and protected ceiling for us. But this is not the only thing Noble Verse 21:32 is saying. Notice how the Notion in the Noble Verse also means that this roof is safe and well-protected (from damage). This is important because as science have uncovered today, the Ozone layer (our roof) is well capable of healing itself from the severe damage that man is causing it with his excessive air pollution. Now, while the Ozone layer would take 100s, if not even 1000s, of years to heal, but nonetheless, it is well-capable of healing and restoring itself to its original form, hence making the Notion in Noble Verse 21:32 much clearer and more proving to the Noble Quran's Divine Claims, because neither man or any power from space could cause the Ozone layer to completely vanish.
Man can eliminate himself, but he can't eliminate mother nature!
It is also worth mentioning that while man can cause the Ozone layer to change and react differently by punching a hole in it through his evil and pollution and greediness, but he can never cause it to cease to exist. On the contrary, he will only hurt and kill himself. Perhaps this is one of Allah Almighty's Divine Ways to tell us that our evil will only hurt us. Our today's continuous evil against mother nature will cause for our Ozone layer to behave in a certain way that will cause life on this earth to cease to exist for the next million years or so. But we will never be able to cause the Ozone layer to cease to exist, hence making it truly a safe, well-guarded, and elevated ceiling as Allah Almighty precisely mentioned these Words in several Noble Verses, for this specific subject, the Noble Quran! It served man and animals for millions of years without a problem, - protecting life from the dangers of space and by filtering out the sun rays (blocks out the sun's ultraviolet rays), - and it will continue to serve him for as long as he doesn't hang himself with his own rope!
Also, it is important to know that the facts about our Ozone layer being a protective ceiling and is able to heal itself may not be the only things that are covered in this Noble Verse. The beauty of the Noble Quran is that it is an Everlasting Miracle for all men, all times and all places. So it is quite possible that more hidden Miracles will be discovered in the future.
2- The Scientific proofs:
Let us now see if science has proven that our Ozone layer is indeed able to heal itself and restore itself to its original form, hence making it truly a safe, well-guarded, and elevated ceiling by Allah Almighty.
"The second is short-term damage -- and this is where conservatives latch onto false hope. It is true that the environment has the capacity to heal itself in some ways. Endangered species can rebound, the earth can create its own ozone, the oceans can absorb greenhouse gases. The rate of recovery depends on the type of damage being done. Species can recover in a few decades; ozone, a century; old growth forests, several centuries; the cooling of radioactive waste, hundreds of thousands of years. But here is a critical point: the environment cannot recover while we are still increasing the damage to it. In many areas, humans are destroying the environment faster than it can recover, as the following statistics will show. And if we continue in our current ways, the damage will inevitably become permanent.
"On the other hand, one could look at it this way. The environment will heal itself -- but not in the way humans would like it to." (Source)
"Like living organisms, he suggests, the ozone layer will heal itself if given the chance.
Barring a string of extremely cold winters, the ozone depletion will stop and fully reverse itself, returning to normal sometime around 2065, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) said last year. The ozone level globally has lowered by 0.3 percent a year over the past decade.
In the stratosphere, ozone is protective. At ground level, however, it is a pollutant -- created by a chemical reaction between exhaust fumes and sunlight -- that can be dangerous for people with bad respiratory or heart problems." (Source)
"Did you know?
If all ozone-depleting chemicals were successfully phased out, the ozone layer would eventually heal itself." (Source)
"How bad is ozone depletion?
Very bad, and getting worse every year! The problem is that most of the gases and vapours that cause ozone-depletion take a long time (10 - 15 years) to homogenise throughout the atmosphere, but they can last up to 100 years for CFCs and 300 years for halons (to remove roughly half of them). Fortunately, one substance that was used very massively as a solvent, 1,1,1-trichloroethane, has a half-life of only 12 years, so that, as it was banned in most major using countries in 1996, the levels of this compound in the air are already measurably improving.
It should be noted that the "ozone hole" is not really a hole but simply an important thinning of the ozone levels over the Antarctic in each southern spring. The cause is quite complex but is simply driven by a weather situation, in conjunction with the man-made chemicals in the stratosphere. On average, it has become worse each year since it was first discovered. 2003 was the worst yet, with 2001 a very close second. In 2002, a peculiar event happened, in that there were two "holes", each of slightly less individual importance. The 2004 "hole" was similar to the 2003 one, very slightly less in depletion but covering a larder area. Even with the application of the Montreal Protocol, it will become significantly worse before it gets better, probably peaking around 2040 - 2050 and then starting to improve. It is expected to heal itself by about the end of this century, provided the Protocol is followed to the letter." (Source)
"What can we expect in the future?
Thanks to our good scientific understanding of the ozone problem - and very largely to Crutzen, Molina and Rowland - it has been possible to make far-reaching decisions on prohibiting the release of gases that destroy ozone. A protocol on the protection of the ozone layer was negotiated under the auspices of the United Nations and signed in Montreal, Canada, in 1987. Under the latest tightening-up of the Montreal Protocol, the most dangerous gases will be totally banned from 1996 (developing countries have a few years' grace to introduce substitutes that do not harm the ozone layer). Since it takes some time for the ozone-destroying gases to reach the ozone layer we must expect the depletion, not only over Antarctica but also over parts of the Northern Hemisphere, to worsen for some years to come. Given compliance with the prohibitions, the ozone layer should gradually begin to heal after the turn of the century (Fig. 3). Yet it will take at least 100 years before it has fully recovered."

Allah Almighty's Divine Claim is confirmed!
There is no question that the Ozone layer is able to restore itself from any abuse that it might receive from either mankind or from outside space. It is indeed a safe, well-guarded, and elevated ceiling that Allah Almighty created! It served man and animals for millions of years without a problem, - protecting life from the dangers of space and by filtering out the sun rays (blocks out the sun's ultraviolet rays), - and it will continue to serve him for as long as he doesn't hang himself with his own rope! Allah Almighty Said:
"We will soon 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)"
Indeed, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty alone.
Again, the Noble Quran is 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's Notion about our Ozone layer being safe and well-guarded ceiling from damage was scientifically proven to be true!
Again, to a simple bedouin such as our Beloved and Blessed Prophet, Role Model and Teacher, Muhammad, Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon him, who lived in Arabia 1,500 years ago, looking up in the sky during the day and seeing it blue with white clouds, and looking at it at night and seeing it black with bright dots of stars, wouldn't think in a million years (if he were to live in his same status) that there is an actual protective layer (what we call today the Ozone layer) covering the entire planet earth!!!
Indeed, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty alone for making the Noble Quran 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.

This is the short version of the long article below. Allah Almighty said this about the moon's S-shaped orbit around the earth:
36:39 والقمر قدرناه منازل حتى عاد كالعرجون القديم
"And We have decreed set phases for the moon, until it ends up عاد looking like an old date branch كالعرجون القديم. It is not for the sun to overtake the moon nor for the night to outstrip the day; each one is swimming in a sphere. (Qur'an, 36:39-40)"

|The egg-shaped earth's orbit!
In another Noble Verse, Allah Almighty described the shape of the earth's orbit around the sun as egg-shaped which had also been confirmed by science.
Please visit: If the Noble Quran says the earth is "egg-shaped" through a Notion, then why couldn't Prophet Muhammad just say it clear in plain Arabic? with detailed proofs demonstrating the miracle of the Word/Notion "dahaha".
