IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, THE BENEFICENT, THE MERCIFUL [All] praise is [due] to Allah, who has sent down upon His Servant the Book and has not made therein any deviance. [He has made it] straight, to warn of severe punishment from Him and to give good tidings to the believers who do righteous deeds that they will have a good reward ( 3 ) In which they will remain forever And to warn those who say, "Allah has taken a son." (Q18: 1-5). We praise Him, the exalted and thank Him, we believe in Him and rely on Him. I bear witness that there is no deity worthy to be worship except Him alone, without partner. I equally bear witness that our leader and our master, Muhammad is his servant and messenger. O Allaah shower your peace and blessing upon Muhammad (SAW) whom you sent to the whole worlds as a glad tiding and warner. You revealed onto him (SAW) the clear scripture (Al-Qur’aan) as a comprehensive eternal proof till the day of Judgement. O Allaah! Be pleased with his noble companions those who spread the law of the Qur’aan and its justice and equity and those who followed them in righteous till the Day of Recompense. Thereafter, O servant of Allaah, I admonish you and myself to fear Allaah, following His injunction: “"يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ حَقَّ تُقَاتِهِ وَلَا تَمُوتُنَّ إِلَّا وَأَنْتُمْ مُسْلِمُونَ " ( آل عمران : 102 ) O you who have believed, fear Allah as He should be feared and do not die except as Muslims [in submission to Him]. Q3:102 My brothers and sisters in faith, this is our fourth gathering in Rabee’uth-Thaanee in the school of the noble messenger (SAW). Today, if Allaah wills, we shall continue on the discussion on “The scientific Miracles of the noble Qur’aan” My esteemed audience, surely, the scientific miracles are numerous, the great scientists of this world have discovered and confirmed these astounding realities of knowledge in the noble Qur’aan. We shall mention them briefly considering the time and capacity at our disposal. 1. Universal Identity and essence of life Allaah, the exalted says: {أَوَلَمْ يَرَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا أَنَّ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضَ كَانَتَا رَتْقاً فَفَتَقْنَاهُمَا وَجَعَلْنَا مِنَ الْمَاءِ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ حَيٍّ أَفَلا يُؤْمِنُونَ} (الأنبياء آية 30) “Have those who disbelieved not considered that the heavens and the earth were a joined entity, and We separated them and made from water every living thing? Then will they not believe?” (Q21:30) The Tafseer of the verse: Allaah the exalted demonstrates in this verse His absolute power and great authority in the creation of things and subdual of the creations addressing the disbelievers in His Lordship who also join partners with Him thus: Can’t they see that the heavens and the earth were as one single matter (entity), jointly fixed together ab initio? Then, they got separated making the heavens seven firmaments and the earth of same layers. He then filled the space between the earth and the closest heaven with air, it also releases rain and the earth produces plants. Allaah the exalted says: وَجَعَلْنَا مِنَ الْمَاءِ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ حَيٍّ أَفَلا يُؤْمِنُونَ} (الأنبياء آية 30) “… and We separated them and made from water every living thing? Then will they not believe?” (Q21:30) A clear expository that water forms the content of every living thing- concrete, plants, animals and human being. For there can be no life without water. For this reason the stars… like the moon and planets are not habitable due to absence of water. Abu Hurairah (RA) narrated: “I said: O messenger of Allah, when I see you, I feel great satisfaction and delight, inform me about everything. He replied: “Everything was created from water” Then Allah conclude the verse with “Then will they not believe?” i.e would you not confirm with what you can see? Surely that cannot exist on its own, rather it has its fashioner and disposer. Scientific commentary on the verse This miraculous revelation in the Qur’an is supported by modern science, which posit that the universe was a single matter made of gaseous content and then was split into planets (cloud of gas). Our solar system as of today is the result of all those divisions. This position is explained by scientists that the sun has 67 components of the 93 components found on earth. The number of elements discoverable in the sun could be more provided the attending difficulties involved in the process of discovery is surmounted. Some of the common elements found in the sun which is common as well on earth as known to us include: hydrogen , Helium, Carbon, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Phosphorus, Iron ... etc. 2 – The Origins of the Universe: {ثُمَّ اسْتَوَى إِلَى السَّمَاءِ وَهِيَ دُخَانٌ فَقَالَ لَهَا وَلِلأَرْضِ ائْتِيَا طَوْعاً أَوْ كَرْهاً قَالَتَا أَتَيْنَا طَائِعِينَ} (فصلت آية 11) Allah said: { Then He directed Himself to the heaven while it was smoke and said to it and to the earth, "Come [into being], willingly or by compulsion." They said, "We have come willingly." } (41:11). The Tafsir of the Quranic verse : This means that Allah deliberately decided the creation of the heaven and intended to proportionate it, or it means that His order ascended to the heaven while it was smoke. The smoke is all that rose from the flame of fire and it is equally used to refer to rising vapour, steam or dust from the ground. Most commentators said that the smoke is water vapour that rose from the water when it was created. What is referred to is that it was existing before then. Then Allah addressed the heaven and the earth, saying Come [into being], willingly or by meaning bring forth all the provisions and benefits that I have made in you to my creatures and they responded appropriately. Scientific commentary on the verse The astronomers have several theories for the beginning of the universe. The renown astronomer Sir James Jeans says : (the reasonable fact is that matter in the universe began as gas which began to spread through the space systemically and the planets were formed by the condensing of these gases) Also a professor of theoretical nature at the University of Washington- Dr. George Jaamou in his book, The Suns said: (The Universe at the beginning was filled with gas, which was spread (distributed) in a regular distribution, it was gas of density and temperature that are unimaginable ...) 3 – The capacity and expanse of the universe : {وَالسَّمَاءَ بَنَيْنَاهَا بِأَيْدٍ وَإِنَّا لَمُوسِعُونَ} (الذاريات آية 47) {And the heaven We constructed with strength, and indeed, We are [its] expander.} (51: 47) . The Tafsir of the Quranic verse : Allah (swt) pointing to the creation of the firmaments And the heaven We constructed i.e we made it as preserved ceiling as said in another verse- {And We made the sky a protected ceiling } (Q21:32). The word (بِأَيْدٍ) means strength and ability. (وَإِنَّا لَمُوسِعُونَ) means that we have expanded the boundaries and created space between it and the earth and raised it without pillars, independent as it is, with every meaning of the word sky whether referring to the orbits of the stars and planets, or a group of constellations of stars called the galaxy containing hundreds of millions of stars, or meaning layers of space littered with stars, planets or other connotations of the word sky. Scientific commentary on the verse Concerning the theory of expansion of the universe, astronomers have observed signs that points to the movement of the solar system with the aid of farthest reaching binoculars in a well-organised stream. This reality have been used to prove that the external planets (cosmic root) appear to be far apart from our solar system but they diverge from one another, and on this basis, the universe is not static but grows and expands like the soap-bubbles or balloons expand while the physical objects are maintained on their sizes. Allah said: (مَا يَعْزُبُ عَنْ رَبِّكَ مِنْ مِثْقَالِ ذَرَّةٍ فِي الأَرْضِ وَلا فِي السَّمَاءِ وَلا أَصْغَرَ مِنْ ذَلِكَ وَلا أَكْبَرَ إِلاَّ فِي كِتَابٍ مُبِينٍ" (يونس آية 61)) "And not absent from your Lord is any [part] of an atom's weight within the earth or within the heaven or [anything] smaller than that or greater but that it is in a clear register." ( Yunus verse 61) . 4 – Existence of Pair in all things: Allah said: {وَمِنْ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ خَلَقْنَا زَوْجَيْنِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَذَكَّرُونَ} (الذاريات آية 49) “And of all things We created two mates; perhaps you will remember. “ (51: 49) Tafsir of the Quranic verse: Allah reveals in this verse His power and ability for making all creatures in pairs; in types and categories. For example, day and night, male and female, heaven and earth, sun and moon, land and sea, light and darkness, disbelief and faith, death and life, misery and happiness, paradise and fire, sweetness and bitterness, Jinn and man, including animals and plants, in order to remember and learn that the creator is one. Scientific commentary on the verse: It is known and visible behold that pair is evident in plants and animals in terms of masculinity and femininity and inanimate objects in terms of the elements. 5 - Underwater and surface waves: {أَوْ كَظُلُمَاتٍ فِي بَحْرٍ لُجِّيٍّ يَغْشَاهُ مَوْجٌ مِنْ فَوْقِهِ مَوْجٌ مِنْ فَوْقِهِ سَحَابٌ ظُلُمَاتٌ بَعْضُهَا فَوْقَ بَعْضٍ إِذَا أَخْرَجَ يَدَهُ لَمْ يَكَدْ يَرَاهَا وَمَنْ لَمْ يَجْعَلِ اللَّهُ لَهُ نُوراً فَمَا لَهُ مِنْ نُورٍ} (سورة النور آية 40) . Or [they are] like darknesses within an unfathomable sea which is covered by waves, upon which are waves, over which are clouds - darknesses, some of them upon others. When one puts out his hand [therein], he can hardly see it. And he to whom Allah has not granted light - for him there is no light. (24:40) Tafsir of the Quranic verse : Allah illustrates the similitude of the unbeliever, his work and his heart which could not comprehend. Scientific commentary on verse: This verse points to the underwater and surface waves (the greatest and most feared waves of the ocean are the unseen waves which are generated from within the depth of the ocean. It is known for many years that ships that navigate the Arctic encounter great difficulty at the area hitherto called the dead sea. It is now known that this experience is caused by the tidal current. The Qur'anic verse says- “within an unfathomable sea which is covered by waves, upon which are waves”, reference to the internal and surface waves. To support this is the quranic description of the sea which means great volume of water and great depth. In this is a reference to the oceans other than the beaches. Worthy of note as well is that these places always have minimized intensity of the sun, which provide opportunity for the gathering of clouds filled with darkness in line with the reality. Stages of development of the fetus in the womb : Allah declared the creation of Adam as the origin of man, thereafter his progeny was based on the following quranic description: " وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنْسَانَ مِنْ سُلَالَةٍ مِنْ طِينٍ (12) ثُمَّ جَعَلْنَاهُ نُطْفَةً فِي قَرَارٍ مَكِينٍ (13) ثُمَّ خَلَقْنَا النُّطْفَةَ عَلَقَةً فَخَلَقْنَا الْعَلَقَةَ مُضْغَةً فَخَلَقْنَا الْمُضْغَةَ عِظَامًا فَكَسَوْنَا الْعِظَامَ لَحْمًا ثُمَّ أَنْشَأْنَاهُ خَلْقًا آخَرَ فَتَبَارَكَ اللَّهُ أَحْسَنُ الْخَالِقِينَ " ( المؤمنون :12- 14) " And certainly did We create man from an extract of clay. Then We placed him as a sperm-drop in a firm lodging. Then We made the sperm-drop into a clinging clot, and We made the clot into a lump [of flesh], and We made [from] the lump, bones, and We covered the bones with flesh; then We developed him into another creation. So blessed is Allah, the best of creators." ( 23: 12-14 ) Dr. Wahbah Zuhailiy in his interpretation said: " this verses show the creation of man, his stages.. as clear evidence of the existence of God and His Oneness. He began the creation of Adam from clay or dust, then made his progeny from the mixture of a sperm from a man and another from a woman, then an embryo is formed- the sperm turn to clot then lump of flesh then to bone, then covered the bones with flesh where appear the features of human, and it becomes a new creation like the first creation by breath of life into it after been inanimate. Scientist have bear witness to this stages without dispute. SECOND KHUTBAH All praises are due to Allah, Who says: " يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِنَّ كَثِيرًا مِنَ الْأَحْبَارِ وَالرُّهْبَانِ لَيَأْكُلُونَ أَمْوَالَ النَّاسِ بِالْبَاطِلِ وَيَصُدُّونَ عَنْ سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ وَالَّذِينَ يَكْنِزُونَ الذَّهَبَ وَالْفِضَّةَ وَلَا يُنْفِقُونَهَا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ فَبَشِّرْهُمْ بِعَذَابٍ أَلِيمٍ (34) يَوْمَ يُحْمَى عَلَيْهَا فِي نَارِ جَهَنَّمَ فَتُكْوَى بِهَا جِبَاهُهُمْ وَجُنُوبُهُمْ وَظُهُورُهُمْ هَذَا مَا كَنَزْتُمْ لِأَنْفُسِكُمْ فَذُوقُوا مَا كُنْتُمْ تَكْنِزُونَ " ( التَّوبة :35 ) The Day when it will be heated in the fire of Hell and seared therewith will be their foreheads, their flanks, and their backs, [it will be said], "This is what you hoarded for yourselves, so taste what you used to hoard." (9:35) Peace and blessings be upon Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his household, companions and those who follow them till the day of recompense. Thereafter, Some of the lesson in the above verse include: 1 - the prohibition of consuming people's wealth unlawfully, 2 - prohibition of hoarding money without spending it the cause of Allah 3 – Decree of punishment for whoever hoard wealth in the hellfire on the day f judgement. Brothers of faith see the way the leaders in Nigeria embezzle the state wealth unjustly- Millions and billions and trillions. The case of kerosene subsidy is currently investigated. Oh Allah descend peace; flowing with continuous tranquility and security upon Nigeria and all other Muslim nations. O Allah accept the worship of the pilgrims of hajj and Umrah, and grant us all Your pleasure, And the last of our call will be, "Praise to Allah, Lord of the worlds!"
