Some Questions
« on: August 12, 2013, 04:23:33 PM »
Assalamualykum.

 We know, Quran accurately talks about Big Bang Theory, Embryology, Black Holes, Pulsar stars, Geology etc. My question is, when the verses relating to these subjects were revealed, didn't any Muslim question about them? Didn't they ask Muhammad(S.A.W) to explain them? Didn't these verses confuse them?

 It's not possible to understand these verses specially the verses referring to the Big Bang theory and Embryology without technology. So how did the early Muslims understand these verse? Didn't these verses create any confusions among the Muslims? How did they accept these verses?

Please help. Please answer all the Questions.

AsalamuAlaikum,

Yes many verses did confuse them. Some didn't.

For example expanding universe. Many tafsirs explained it meant the expanding of the heavens.

And Embryology many explained it as we do today.

But as for other things like Big Bang theory, they got confused. However they accepted what Allah had said.

My question is, when the verses relating to these subjects were revealed, didn't any Muslim question about them? Didn't they ask Muhammad(S.A.W) to explain them? Didn't these verses confuse them?

Maybe they did, Maybe they didnt. We dont have any sahih hadith with explanations of the verses on Big bang or expanding universe or Pulsars etc.

 It's not possible to understand these verses specially the verses referring to the Big Bang theory and Embryology without technology. So how did the early Muslims understand these verse? Didn't these verses create any confusions among the Muslims? How did they accept these verses?

As said above. Generally they got confused. But they accepted them as they were as they were a revelation from Allah. Some of them they could half explain expanding universe, embryology etc. Others they were clueless.

Assalamualykum.


 Some unbelievers claim that the early Muslims in Arabia knew about Human Embryology. They say they used to cut human bodies and study these things. So, how should we answer these guys?  And is there any verse in the Quran whose secret or correct meaning is yet to be discovered?

 And,because of these scientific miracles many people are coming towards Islam. But what happened back then? How did they get attracted towards Islam?

 Some unbelievers claim that the Muslims at the time of Muhammad (S.A.W) knew about Human Embryology. They claim they used to cut Human bodies and study these things and that's why  when verses related to Human embryology were revealed those verses didn't confuse them.

 My question is, as most of the scientific miracles of the Quran were unknown at that time, so what attracted the people towards Islam at that time? And , what assured them that Islam is the true religion?

 Please Help.

Brother, stop asking too many questions, it's not good.
Firstly, people in Arabia, for example, Jews in Medina would regularly tell their people that a man will come, so the arabs, when the prophet came accepted him straight away, in fact the jews would say to the pagans, a prophet will arise here, and we will fight with him against you to establish the religion of Ibraheem (May Allah send peace upon him).

Also, the prophet performed many miracles with the help of Allah, he split the moon etc.
PLEASE, if you want to know how people accepted him etc, go and listen to his biography (May Allah send peace and blessings upon him).

Listen to the one by Mufti menk, my faith increased so much.
But yeah, most people accepted him, when he entered Medina because they were awaiting for a prophet to come who would re-establish the religion of Ibraheem (May Allah send peace and blessings upon him).

The main reason people converted to Islam was because of the linguistic miracle of the Qur'an
