Quran and Modern Science
The Quran is a book that claims that it is God’s word and is based on its effect. It is a miracle. Such a claim can easily be substantiated at any time by the standards of this covenant. The challenge of the Quran is to make a single surah like the surah included in it. The same challenge is repeated in many places in the Quran. The challenge is to create a form that is similar in beauty, spiritual depth, and fluency. This is a challenge that no one has been able to answer to date. A modern healthy, intelligent person will never accept that a heavenly book in the best poetic and literary language says that the earth is flat. This is because the age in which we live in the age of reasoning and logic, and science is given priority in it. The Quran is not a scientific book but a book of verses. It contains more than 6,000 verses. There are more than 1000 verses in it that are about the solid facts of science. We know that in many places, science deviates from what it says.
Astronomy – The creation of the universe / Big Bang
While explaining the details of the creation of the universe, astrophysicists have been content with the Big Bang, the widely recognized phenomenon of nature. This is supported by the observational and experimental data collected by astronomers and astrophysicists for decades. According to the Big Bang, the whole universe was initially in the form of a huge landslide. Then they were separated to form galaxies. Then they were divided into stars, planets, sun, moon, etc. The beginning of the universe was unprecedented, and there is absolutely no chance of it coming into existence by chance. According to the Qur’an, the heavens and the earth were joined together, and then Allah separated them and created every living thing from water. The similarities between the Qur’an and the Big Bang are indescribable. One wonders how this infallible scientific truth came to be in the inspired book revealed in the deserts of Arab fourteen hundred years ago.
The earth is round in its structure
For centuries, humans were afraid to travel long distances. Because they were were afraid that they would reach the edge of time. Sir Francis Drake was the first to discover that the earth is round. He sailed around the earth in 1597 AD. Allah says in the Qur’an: Do they not see that we spend the night in the day and the day in the night? Consumption or digestion here means that the nights gradually and gradually turn into days and days in the same way at night. This is possible only when the earth is round. If the earth was flat, then the night would suddenly turn into day and day into night. And also, the shape of the earth is described in the Qur’an like an ostrich’s egg. Thus, the shape of the earth is described correctly in the Holy Quran.
The sun will set one day
Sunlight is the result of a chemical process that continues on its surface and has been going on for the last five billion years. In the future, it will end at some point. This will happen when the sun goes out completely. When it goes out, all living things on earth will perish. Their lamps of life will go out. Regarding the instability of the existence of the sun, the Qur’an says that the sun’s fixed path follows it. Therefore, the Quran says that the sun is running towards a certain place and this race will be for the time which the Creator of the universe has predetermined that is, the sun will disappear as soon as it reaches the appointed time.
