"তিনিই সে সত্তা যিনি সৃষ্টি করেছেন তোমাদের জন্য যাহা কিছু যমীনে আছে সে সব (পদার্থ)। তাহার পর তিনি মনো সংযোগ করেছেন আসমানের প্রতি। বস্তুত: তিনি তৈরি করেছেন সাত আসমান। আর আল্লাহ সব বিষয়ে অবহিত। - আল কুরআন ২:২৯
কাফেররা কি দেখেনা যে, আসমান জমীন সবকিছু মিলিত অবস্থায় ছিল এবং আমরাই এগুলিকে আলাদা আলাদা করে দিয়েছি।আল কুরআন ২১: ২৯
(ভার্সিটির একটা সেমিনারে একটা প্রসেন্টেশন করেছিলাম, তার স্লাইডগুলোর সারমর্ম)
Definition of Science
Science (from the Latin scientia, meaning “Knoledge") is the effort to discover, understand, or to understand better, how the physical world works, with observable physical evidences as the basis of that understanding. It is done through observation of existing phenomena, and/or through experimentation that tries to simulate phenomena under controlled conditions. Knowledge in science is gained through research.
Way to the Modern Science
The modern age of Science can be divided into three steps:
The Empirical Investigation age: Theophrastus, Aristotle, Elder Pliny.
Dawn of Science: Ibn Al-Haytham, Abu Rayhan Al-Biruni, Ibn-Sina, Al-Khawarizmi etc.
Modern age of Science: Continuing.
Islam and Science
Al-Qur’an, the complete for the people of whole world which is revealed to the Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) is the great encyclopedia for Science.
Reading Al-Qur’an is obligatory for Muslims.
Prophet (pbuh) inspired a lot to acquiring knowledge and using newer technology in every sectors of practical life.
The Big Bang
Currently, the Big Bang model of the origin of the universe is the cosmological paradigm most widely accepted by astronomers. It holds that about 15 billion years ago the universe began with the explosive expansion of a single, extremely dense matter, the primordial mass. Only after the development of radio telescopes in 1937 that, the necessary observational precision was achieved in order for astronomers to arrive at the above conclusion. What does Qur’an say about our universe’s origin?
“Do not the unbelievers see that the Heavens and the earth were joined together, then We split them apart.” (21:30)
In 1925, Edwin Hubble (after whom the Hubble Space telescope is named) provided the observational evidence for the expansion of the universe. Stephen Hawking (author of ‘A Brief History of Time’) states: “The universe is not static, as had previously been thought, it is expanding”.
“And the firmament, We constructed with power and skill and verily We are expanding it” (51:47)
Conquest of Space by Human
Human exploration and the conquest of space began with the launching of the Russian Satellite, Sputnik I on Oct. 4, 1957. Then followed the launching of humans into space, which eventually led to a manned space flight to the Moon on July 20th, 1967. Thus the dream of humanity since the dawn of civilization to go beyond the earth to the heavens was realized.
“O assembly of Jinn’s and humans, if you can penetrate the regions of the heavens and the earth, then penetrate them! You will not penetrate them save with a power (of God).” (55:33)
Existance of Sun's Orbit
Nicholas Copernicus in 1512 laid his Heliocentric Theory of Planetary motion, which placed the sun motionless in the centre of the solar system with all the planets revolving around it. Modern science tells us now that the sun too is not still, but is in motion.
“It is He who created the night and the day, and the sun and the moon, all (the celestial bodies) swim along, each in its orbit with its own motion.” (21:33)
The Protective Atmosphere
Earth is constantly bombarded by meteoroids that disintegrate upon the atmosphere and by lethal rays emitted by the sun. This UV radiation is absorbed by the Ozone layer forming the outer fringe of our atmosphere. Thus our atmosphere along with its Ozone layer is a protective covering for us. Life possibly could not have existed without it. How meticulously, does our Lord sustain and protect us against this atmospheric destruction.
“And we have made the atmosphere a protective roof, yet do they turn away from the Signs which these things point to.” (21:32)
“God fashioned man from a small quantity (of sperm)” (16:4)
“Then We placed him as a drop in a place of rest” (23:13)
“Then We made the drop into a leech like structure...” (23:14)
“And He (God) gave you hearing and sight and feeling and understanding.” (32:9)
Existence of Pair in all Creation
Animal, plants and vegetation are divided into two genders, male and female.
In electricity, these two genders can be classified as positive and negative.
North and South pole describe it in magnetism, electron and proton in atoms, matter and antimatter etc.
“Hallowed is He, Who created pairs in all things, those that grow from the earth and of themselves, and what they know not.” (36:36)
Dr. Keith Moore, Professor of Embryology, after analyzing the verses of the Quran for three years comments: “It has been a pleasure for me to help clarify statements in the Quran about Human Development. It is clear to me that these statements must have come to Muhammad from God or Allah because almost all of this knowledge was not discovered until many centuries later”
Dr. Maurice Bucaille, French Physician, after studying Quran and comparing it with modern science, addressing the French Academy of Medicine in 1976 proclaimed: “Our knowledge of these disciplines is such, that it is impossible to explain how a text produced at the time of the Qur'an could have contained ideas that have only been discovered in modern times”.
Guidance to humanity proclaimed in the Quran is complete and applicable to all societies and all times. Whether we are living in the Stone Age or the Space Age, riding in horse pulled carriages or flying in Space Shuttles, we haven’t changed a bit.
We have Faith to Al-Qur’an, so, no one can go more forward than us. Now The non believers are discovering things whose are being believed by us strongly. So, we are in ahead. We have to be more conscious about Iman and believe strongly to Al-Qur’an and have to lead the world. No time can be spare.
We want to end our presentation with this message, We are the best in the world and we have to come forward again and lead the world.
