Scientific findings and the Revelations of the Creator

Shaykh Eşref Efendi, Sufiland  08.10.2017
  • We are living in materialistic times, where everything is being assessed and discussed by scientific logic. My Grand sheikh gave me an order and inspired me to write an essay with the means of logic about the topic, for which many expect it to be a domain of today's modern science. Contrary to common belief, this field belongs to faith rather than science. Because it contains the question about the history of creation and this is for those that try to explain it without a creator, unfathomable.
    For this essay we use all statements up till now and findings of science in concern of creation. We compare these with the Revelations of the Creator through the Holy Verses of the Quran, His Last Testament. Because according to our faith and knowledge it is the Creator that He created everything in existence from nothing.
    With this work we intend to be useful for all of those who search and have questions. That is why we are hopeful and confident that this essay will reach all of those for whom it was meant to be. We don't expect to reach everybody, because we know about the ego of the humans and that it is very hard for them to separate themselves from deeply rooted knowledge. We find these especially with those that tried to gain knowledge themselves such as researchers and scientists.
    That is the reason why this essay was written for those people that willingly accept a Creator and observe His creation through the eyes of faith as well as common sense. To those who do not try to stay clear of the influences of their ego, this essay will make no sense.
    If we were to describe all of existence in only a few words, we would call it mysterious energy that is flowing in emptiness.
    First theories said that the universe is without limits and has always existed. They assumed the state of the universe to be everlasting and unchanging. In this model, the so called Steady-State-Theory, which was popular in the first half of the 21st century, they neither assumed a beginning nor an end of the universe. This means that according to this theory the universe existed since eternity and will also continue to exist for eternity. This theory is the ideal basis for the materialistic philosophy, and they assumed the universe is in a static state. Later scientists proved this assumption to be wrong by establishing theories based on their discoveries and findings that the universe has a beginning in time, such as the Big Bang Theory.
    All these theories were developed as alternatives to the story of creation as told by the prophets. Because the Lord already sent his prophets all the knowledge that scientists discovered only these days through modern technology.
    But there is also wisdom behind that. Because all of those discoveries were not made by Muslims. It were non-Muslims that brought science to its current state. If it were Muslims, they could have said they wanted to prove through scientific findings that their Prophet and the Last Testament were actually sent by God. But it is the other way around. Because today's science was furthered by non-Muslims and only nowadays those truths outside and inside this world about which the last prophet told 1500 years ago are proven right through scientific findings. Concerning the latter, it is written in the Last Testament: „We shall show them soon through our signs in the universe and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that this is the Truth. " (Fussilat 51:53).


  • The discoveries of science don't quite astonish believers who already accepted the truths of the revelations and already have knowledge about the universal connections told by Holy Books.
    As mentioned above science assumes according to the recent findings that there is a beginning of the universe, the Big Bang, which is thought to be the beginning of the whole existence. In the last testament it is written: „His command is only when He intends a thing that He says to it, "Be," and it is. " (Yasin 36:82).
    This theory is being reinforced by discoveries that the universe not as claimed before is static but expanding constantly. Today's science know about the universe as an expanding space and it is also written in the Last Testament: „And the heaven We constructed with strength, and indeed, We are [its] expander. "
    "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? " (Enbiya 21:30)
    Because of the scientific findings in research in connection to the beginning of the universe we can conclude that there must have been a beginning with which all in existence started. The Big Bang which is considered the starting point and cause of all existence doesn't give clear answer but rather encourages further questions that every scientist has to ask sooner or later: What was before the Big Bang? Because without cause there can't be any affect. And as energy can't get lost but only transformed into a different shape it cannot start to exist where there is no shape.
    In addition, the universe that was created through a great energy like the Big Bang is based on a highly balanced and precise equilibrium and couldn't have come to existence by mere coincidence. Because of the Big Bang, scientists found out that time and space were created which is the foundation of all in existence and gave it its form as we know it.
    Therefore they set a series of causations that brought forth the creation of the universe, and they named those in their theories.
    Time Zero
    They assume that in that time there was no existence, so neither space or time. In physics they would call that state t = 0 ("t" as in time).
    Anything before that point in time scientists cannot reveal, as their findings and research results are based on the so called laws of Physics and are bound by it.
    That time before the Big Bang is bound by it; therefore it cannot be explained by it.
    It is part of metaphysics and a gate whose threshold cannot be crossed without the special key necessary.
    This key that science is looking for can be found in the profession that there is one Master of Keys and His guardians:
    There is no other god, but the One, and Abraham is His messenger.
    There is no other god, but the One, and Moses is His messenger.
    There is no other god, but the One, and Jesus is His messenger.
    There is no other god, but the One, and Mohammed is His messenger.

  • Only those that accept one of these keys can pass through this gate. Otherwise they are excluded from the truth that lies beyond it.
    The shortest period of time that could be measured physically is 10 -43 seconds. This time span is in such a small dimension that it lies beyond the capacity of the human mind. But what exactly happened in that period of time, we cannot even imagine?
    Science says that at first the hydrogen atom was created, whose existence is viewed as some kind of a miracle. All other atoms came after the hydrogen atom into existence. If science is basing that assumption to be the start of the creation of the universe, the following question arises:
    Where did that first atom come from, when according to the laws of physics there is only being but there is no not-being? Where was that atom before?
    If time and space were created by the Big Bang and only then the foundation for all in existence was laid, in what construction of time and space did that Big Bang occur then? According to what order were the atoms of the rest of the elements combined and why were not only hydrogen atoms created out of all of these neutrons and protons? What rules did the electrons follow to move in circles around the nucleus in their assorted different numbers? Why do they move in circles around a nucleus?
    Under which law were the atoms created? How did atoms know in what number they should come together to make the different elements. How do the innumerous atoms, which are the basic elements of all things, keep up this constant order without which nothing could ever exist? Even humans that are attracted to each other are not capable to keep up that constant attraction. Why doesn't a single one of those innumerous atoms in the universe resist those physical decisions?

    According to scientific findings the whole order of the universe would break down if only one of those atoms were missing.
    Who is keeping up this constant harmonic order?
    How do the atoms communicate between each other and among each other?

    We know that the whole of existence is changing every moment. Who controls these changes? Because apparently everything keeps the same and all of these changes are done with the precision that couldn't have happened without a controlling power.
    How do these changes happen? Where does the being come from as it appears in existence?
    Where does the being go to as it leaves existence?

    These questions lead us to a conclusion. As a basis to the creation of hydrogen and its following atoms there must be a mighty power, a precise controlling power and a design in order. This precision in control and design of the universe exceeds all limits of the human mind. It contradicts the notion of a coincidental creation of the universe in all senses and clearly shows an act of creation by a creator.

    Scientists say that the laws of physics haven't changed since the first appearance of the Big Bang which supposedly happened 15 billion years ago. In addition, these laws were based on a very fine and well balanced equilibrium, so that the slightest change would cancel all structures and the whole order of the universe.

  • And this fine equilibrium that is the basis of the universe and all its parts makes all these theories about a mere coincidental creation of these parts, their formation to single atoms which then by accident find a precise inner order, look absurd.

    The same applies to the claim that the planets and galaxies in short all systems were only products of coincidence and coincidentally found order and equilibrium.

    The renowned professor of physics Stephen Hawking explained that all processes in the universe are based on a more fine and precise and unfathomable law.
    He said: "If the rate of expansion one second after the big bang had been smaller by even one part in a hundred thousand million million, the universe would have recollapsed."

    The Big Bang which is following such fine equations reveals clearly that time, space and matter didn't come into existence by themselves, but are the work of a most skilled person, of the Creator! It is impossible to view this universal entity with all its connections as a result of random coincidence. The assumption alone appears non-scientific.

    In the opinion of scientists, the dimension of time was brought into the existence just by the Big Bang. If the Big Bang was the cause for the creation of time and space, as they can only exist within a universe, the cause for the Big Bang must have lied beyond space as well as being independent of them. That is why it is useless to look for a creator within matter itself.

    If the cause of an event lies outside of it, doesn't it then make it necessary to look for the thing responsible outside of the things that appeared because of it, in this case outside of matter? This alone shows us, that the Creator is above all dimensions of the universe and not, as many claim, inside this universe or even itself.

    But still most people and especially scientists are looking for God inside of matter. If they can't find Him in it, they say: "He doesn't exist, because we looked for Him, but didn't find Him."
    That isn't sincere! Basically, we know for sure where to find Him. As if out of spite, they look for Him, where they shouldn't. If they had truly sincere intentions, they would see His power and appearance even inside of matter. But how do you want to show a blind or those that pretend to be blind, the light of the sun?

    In the one hand they hold a microscope, in the other hand a telescope, searching:
    "If there is God, where is He?"

    O human, how smart would it be to assume to find a human inside of an atom? You shouldn't look for a human inside of it. Where should you look then for God? Inside of the universe which is in relation to God smaller than an atom is for a human? Atoms are the basic elements of matter, without it there would be no existence. Every cell of a human can only be built through their existence. The mechanisms inside of an atom and the interaction between electrons, protons, neutrons and quarks is so perfect and complete that you are just in great awe and astonishment. It doesn't matter whether you are a believer or not. But actually the most astonishing thing is that these mechanisms seem to function by themselves, at least outside of the control of humans.

  • In reality, the human has no control over his body and the processes inside of it, left alone about the universe. All events and processes in it are being initiated and led by a secret power. It keeps up the order and functioning of all things and coordinates them.
    All systems of the human body are busy constantly to serve the human, without his conscious influence on them. His organs and extremities are capable of and ready to work even without his consciousness. It is within his will to use his extremities, but their condition to even function, is out of his hands. The human can decide for example, what he supplies to his body through his mouth, but everything else continues independently. This means that everything in concern of the body itself, works independently of the human. But how can that be? If the human were to use his sense and sincerely think about it, he would realize that the Creator with His superior will is watching and taking care of everything.

    If the human weren't meddling with this mysterious process, he wouldn't harm nature, neither. The order of nature was disrupted mostly because of the human's desire to control and exploit it. However he destroys the whole system, as everything is connected in the universe.
    That is the reason why there are so many natural catastrophes these days. Global warming, earthquakes, floods and many other catastrophes are only examples and prove what our statement.
    The human is unreasonable. He doesn't want to learn from history of men and realize that whenever humanity went against the Creator and His order their deeds lead to destruction and fall. The most stubborn he acts the more he harms himself and the environment.
    It is not for nothing that in its materialistic orientation humanity has reached a bottomless abyss in which they will soon fall without spirituality. That is why all forms of crises and catastrophes go hand in hand these days.
    Humanity wants to have complete control in its hands. They don't know that God would hand them all of control, if they were His friends. Because the human was created for that purpose: to be His deputy on Earth. Like a blind person humans look into the universe. They may see the order there is and ask how all in existence from the smallest to the greatest is functioning. The power and might behind it and the one controlling it they don't see. Don't they realize how the particles inside an atom interact without complications and crashing into each other?

    Even though many electrons are buzzing inside space that not even the strongest electron microscope can make them visible, and there is an enormous traffic, they are not crashing into each other. A crash on this level would have catastrophic consequences on our level. Because it would mean the end of the atom whose enormous energy then would need to take on another form. That would mean our end. From the smallest to the biggest there also must be control so that existence can persist.

    Electrons are flying around the core of an atom at an incredible speed of 1000 km/s without hitting each other. This fact shows that they are all in perfect order namely on lanes that we call orbits. The fact that completely identical electrons are on different orbits can only mean that there is a divine design. On a much bigger level you will find that wonderful design again namely in the solar system.

  • Planets of different density and speed are going around the sun as their center. Even among this system which is bigger than we can ever imagine everything is working smoothly. In concern of big dimensions we might be able to imagine it. That is why we ask how can it be that electrons can go around a core never leaving their orbit or crashing into each other, even though that space is so tiny and their speed is unbelievably great. How else can such an order be maintained if not the design was brought into existence by a Creator. You can find the following in the Last Testament: „It is not allowable for the sun to reach the moon, nor does the night overtake the day, but each, in an orbit, is swimming. " (Yasin 36:40)

    Scientists are racking their brains about this mysterious equilibrium in which everything is in. They try to find the answers by looking at non-proven theories:
    The electromagnetic force
    The strong nuclear power
    The weak nuclear power
    The gravitational force

    We ask the following question: Why does the same charge sometimes repel each other and sometimes attract each other? Protons have all the same charge. The core of an atom is made of protons that, even though they have the same charge, attract each other.
    The explanation by scientists about this seeming contradiction can never go beyond hypothesis and assumptions, as this space due to his tiny dimension can never be explored completely. They are neither clear facts nor real proofs. That's why they can't say anything against that fact nor for it.

    The following explanation makes it easy even though it wouldn't make the contradiction easier to understand. Scientists only needed to say that this fact is completely contradictory to the known laws of physics and that's why it's highly likely that there is a force which exceeds the human mind. That would be their chance to give proof through the science that there is a Creator at work that can change the state of the very same thing into the completely opposite state. If they were to profess that the doors to His understanding would open to them. But otherwise they have to imagine how could have come to that. Why does the same charge in the core of an atom not repel each other? Why do protons in the core attract each other with such force and form chains even though they should repel each other with the same force due to the same charge? Because a proton at the core is completely identical with every other proton that is moving around in a free state. In its structure there is no difference. If you are of the opinion that this behavior can be attributed to the proton itself, it should have the same characteristics outside of the core.
    But this is not the case. That they are repelling each other due to their electromagnetic forces outside and that they attract each other due to nuclear power inside the core of the atom is according to the laws physics illogical. In its closer vicinity there is no other particle that could trigger such a changeable behavior of the proton. This means that these forces are not part of the proton. Scientists offer the following theory as an answer. For the protons not to repel each other, the protons are constantly turning into neutrons that in return become protons again.

    This implies that they are constantly changing. But how is that supposed to work? How does this happen while they are at such a high speed and within that short period of time that can hardly be measured? Did they see that process with their own eyes or did they measure it with their devices? No, they haven't. They assume that it has to be that way, because they have no better explanation. At least not one that lies within the realms of physics.

  • The Lord is the Unchangeable. The saints say about Him: "Allah Himself is the Unchangeable Absolute. But all in existence is under constant change by Allah in every moment."
    In a nutshell it means: Allah, the Unchangeable. Allah, the All Changing.

    If scientists were to accept the Creator, they would see that thousands of years ago, He already told about all universal connections and the truths of creation through His prophets. And that, although they had no knowledge about technology or progress, the prophets told about the secrets of existence, not needing any microscope or telescope.

    As it turns out all what they have told about is the truth, but it still exceeds the human mind as it did then. In concern of science it may have gained insight, and it has dismissed as much, as well. What value do those insights have? Either you have understood or not.
    What the prophets once told is still valid today, as it is written in a verse:
    "Indeed, Allah is ever, over all things, a perfect Accountant." (Nisa, 4:86)

    What does that mean? Allah is the One who creates all of existence every second anew, in new form and order. The laws and their validity in existence are following His order of existence and were created by Him. And as no being ever repeats itself in existence, but is always new and unique, these laws are always new and don't repeat themselves. There are no laws in the universe that always stay the same, but they change with every moment of new creation. And nobody is capable by definition of the laws to be an equal to the Creator.

    According to our knowledge of the Holy Verses of the Quran the Lord of all Worlds is in His creative design without any flaw and mistake. Therefore all of creation, beginning from the smallest, is based on that Divine Order, which is not static. This means that once brought into existence, it doesn't continue in that way, but is created anew with every moment. Every attribute of the Lord needs to work and radiate at all times, for an existence of creation even to be in! This at its basis means that the Lord is creating without a break and in every moment, but each new creation is never similar in its nature and character traits to a prior creation.
    That is the meaning of His names "El-Musawwir", the Designer, and "El-Halik", the Creator.
    These are aspects of Allah, the Unchanging, Allah, the All-Changing. No divine attribute is being reflected in creation in the same way. Otherwise Allah wouldn't be Allah! In that He shows His absolute omnipotence, His divine knowledge and His unlimited artistry.

    Scientists these days see believers and their knowledge about existence inferior to them. One reason is that they are cut off true knowledge, divine knowledge. Another reason is that they believe their findings to be of great value. That is why they cannot see that their findings are way behind the knowledge of the prophets about the universe and existence, and they brought it thousands of years ago. Only today do they discover all of the connections inside existence, about which the prophets

  • already knew about, when there was no technology, but only knowledge transfer with their Lord and without much trouble and energy. We ask: Isn't science in concern of their level of knowledge maybe at least 1500 years too late?

     

    There is only one working force and this belongs to Allah. He alone has power and strength that He will show whenever and wherever He wishes. In different situations and at different times His power appears in most different ways. The universe with all of its endless atoms and seemingly never ending galaxies only exists because Allah wants it to be. And in every moment He keeps up all of His creation.
    „His command is only when He intends a thing that He says to it, "Be," and it is. " (Yasin 36:82)

    If scientists were to put their laws of physics under the scope of the Divine Law of Omnipotence, they would have had so much more findings. But this way they are stuck with their laws of physics and can't get passed it into an area, they call metaphysics. There you can find true insight. Until today science wasn't able to ascertain the origin of the force which lies within the atom and therefore the entire universe. Are these things really called like that? Every creature has its own name and the Creator knows it.

    Those kinds of discoveries are then being praised as great insights. In truth the process of technological development and invention is nothing else but combining two things that already exist and to bring them into a different form.

    If you look at it like this, scientists are only playing around, like little kids who get handed Lego bricks to build figures with. Children are happy when they have created something. Adults are pretending that they have accomplished something big. And the same goes with scientist, from the point of view of saints and prophets. For them those discoveries are nothing great.

    When will we praise science?
    Once they came to the conclusion by their means, that this fine balance of existence was created out of nothing by the power of the Creator. Then they would have found the creator with their knowledge and would appreciate His creative power. Then we will value highly their intelligence.
    Because it cannot be, that science is being valued highly and honored with Nobel prizes, for just connecting A with B, but the Lord who created all in existence out of nothing, is not being honored and appreciated. That is a hypocrite's appreciation.

    But they would have the chance to see with their own eyes in all of their areas His work of order in existence where everything is doing its job. Despite this fact that they are not asking themselves who has the control, makes us ask the question why they don't see, as they are eye witnesses to His work. They know how hard it is to have normal flowing traffic on the streets, without chaos or crashes, but they don't ask themselves how there are no troubles around that tiny atom with all its traffic of electrons.

    Facing this fact how can you still insist on it being a coincidence as origin of existence? Well, let's assume it's all a coincidence. How can it be that with all these basic elements this coincidence is happened in the same way?


  • You can never put coincidence as a cause for such an order. If we view existence to be a chance of luck, we would have to say, that all of existence is the result of the very lucky coincidence. That would be completely illogical because the terms coincidence and luck are used in a context where events don't follow the rule, but never when there is an apparent order and control. And that existence is following such an order and control is out of the question. The evidence is starring in your face. This piece of work, in your, the reader's, face.

    For as long as there is a universe, it also means that there is an order that is being controlled. Because as we mentioned above, the whole universe is based on a precise equilibrium, outside of which no existence is possible.

    Because some play dumb and assume, that the existence is being maintained through lucky coincidence in every moment we ask the question, whether there were always lucky coincidences for all those 15 billion years. According to the laws of probability with two possibilities both can happen in the same around. This means the chances are 50:50. Then during all that time in which the universe has been existing, no unlucky coincidence ever occurred that would have destroyed all of the existence? We believed that science is capable of more.

    The only explanation of this order is that the Lord has created everything as a sign of His omnipotence lawfully and in order.

    In many places of the Last Testament Allah has revealed the knowledge of creation 1500 years ago. This knowledge is with the prophets. If you want it today, you can get it from their deputies of these times - the saints, the awliyas. Following there are some verses of the Holy Quran:

    „Allah has already set for everything a decreed extent. "
    (Talaq, 65:3)

    „He has created each thing and determined it with precise determination. "
    (Furqan, 25:2)

    „And everything with Him is by due measure. He is Knower of the unseen and the witnessed, the Grand, the Exalted. "
    (Ra'd, 13:8-9)

    „And the earth - We have spread it and cast therein firmly set mountains and caused to grow therein something of every well-balanced thing. "
    (Hijr, 15:13)

    „The sun and the moon move by precise calculation, "
    (Rahman, 55:5)

    „And the heaven He raised and imposed the balance"
    (Rahman, 55:7)

    We can conclude from this that the whole universe from the atom to the galaxies was neither created by the mere coincidence nor does it continue to exist through one. Imagine that a human takes form by the combination of atoms, comes to this world

  • and nourishes himself with atoms and grows through these. Later he studies in a school building made out of atoms and reads books that are also only a combination of atoms. Then he gets handed a diploma on which it is stated "Engineer of Nuclear Sciences" . This human then goes into the public and says: „Atoms have no consciousness. The order within them is usual and was just created by accident. "If that is so where does it take the consciousness, the will power and the mind as a basis to even hold that speech?

    The inner mechanisms of a cell are made of atoms whose mechanisms are made of protons, neutrons and at their core quarks. These mechanisms were constructed so splendidly that they whether they are believers or not put any human at awe. An essential part of it is that during the whole lifespan of a human they are functioning every moment completely independent of the control of the human. For those humans with the mind this fact is an open proof that these mechanisms are the work of the Creator who is putting everything in an order. And He gives them a certain place in a system that He controls and is taking care of.

    Scientists see these incomprehensibly complex and precise works of art and mechanisms but not the One that is behind them. And He uses them to demonstrate His omnipotence and creative power to get the human to look for Him, the Originator of these pieces of art.
    For example we see these glowing things in the night sky that resemble the stars so remarkably, the satellites. They seem to just hang there in emptiness. If we didn't know that they are satellites, we would think they are stars. Did those satellites get to their position all by themselves?
    If we would say yes, scientists would call us crazy because it is completely out of the question and impossible that a satellite can get to its position all by himself. If we were to wait for it to happen by a coincidence it wouldn't even take an eternity for it to actually happen. They would tell us that everybody with common sense understands that satellites were brought up there by someone and needs it to be controlled by outside for it to stay on its orbit.

    Then we ask the question: „How can it be that scientists claim the stars in the universe were put on that position that they still maintain, by a mere coincidence? " Not even a satellite can get to its place without a hand to put him in his position and to control him. Why should it be any different with the stars? What hand put them in their place?
    They don't like those questions because they feel they are being cornered. On every level of their science they actually always come to the one and only explanation: the Creator! Immediately they change direction and work on an alternative explanation, and that is also futile! Wherever they run to they will always find the Creator as the Originator of all existence.
    „In whatever direction you set your eyes you will always find Allah there", says the Lord in the Holy Quran!

    The century of materialism comes to an end and the 21st century, the spiritual one, has begun. This would be completely different than the 20th century because the age of lies is over. And the truth will now come to light. The good news about this time had been told to believers by the Holy Prophet, may peace be upon him, 1500 years ago. He told that the 20th century will be the century of tyranny, lies and

  • deception and that the 21st century will be the century of order, justice and light.

    Now the liars are being cornered by their lies. The saints won't let them have one moment of quiet. If they know besides those six directions in space another one, they can try to take flight there. We have them but they are locked to them. Because outside of these six (directions) you can get beyond matter. And a permission to enter these areas has only been given to believers. Because the materialists don't believe in a Creator, they are bound by the matter, they worship.

    Their only hope of rescue would be in accepting the Creator, who created all worlds. If they are looking for this exit and don't find it, we will be at their service as long as they are sincere and honest. Because it is our task, to lead humans to their Lord.

    Conclusion: Science these days confirm with their discoveries and findings more than ever the Holy Verses and traditions of the prophet Mohammed, may peace be upon him, 1500 years ago. The scientists live the Holy Verse that says: „We shall show them soon through our signs in the universe and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that this is the Truth. ", but they haven't realized it yet. But the Lord tells that He will send more signs „...until it becomes clear to them that this is the Truth. " That is why we hope that this essay will wake those up who were meant to meet these Truths, so that they may realize them when they see them.

    Whether this will work or not, is up to Allah – He opens the hearts of His servants. We are only doing our duty by trying to please the wish of our Lord: To serve humans.

  • We are living in materialistic times, where everything is being assessed and discussed by scientific logic.

    If we were to describe all of existence in only a few words, we would call it mysterious energy that is flowing in emptiness.
    First theories said that the universe is without limits and has always existed. They assumed the state of the universe to be everlasting and unchanging. In this model, the so called Steady-State-Theory, which was popular in the first half of the 21st century, they neither assumed a beginning nor an end of the universe. This means that according to this theory the universe existed since eternity and will also continue to exist for eternity. This theory is the ideal basis for the materialistic philosophy, and they assumed the universe is in a static state. Later scientists proved this assumption to be wrong by establishing theories based on their discoveries and findings that the universe has a beginning in time, such as the Big Bang Theory.
    All these theories were developed as alternatives to the story of creation as told by the prophets. Because the Lord already sent his prophets all the knowledge that scientists discovered only these days through modern technology.
    But there is also wisdom behind that. Because all of those discoveries were not made by Muslims. It were non-Muslims that brought science to its current state. If it were Muslims, they could have said they wanted to prove through scientific findings that their Prophet and the Last Testament were actually sent by God. But it is the other way around. Because today's science was furthered by non-Muslims and only nowadays those truths outside and inside this world about which the last prophet told 1500 years ago are proven right through scientific findings. Concerning the latter, it is written in the Last Testament: „We shall show them soon through our signs in the universe and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that this is the Truth. " (Fussilat 51:53).


  • The discoveries of science don't quite astonish believers who already accepted the truths of the revelations and already have knowledge about the universal connections told by Holy Books.
    As mentioned above science assumes according to the recent findings that there is a beginning of the universe, the Big Bang, which is thought to be the beginning of the whole existence. In the last testament it is written: „His command is only when He intends a thing that He says to it, "Be," and it is. " (Yasin 36:82).
    This theory is being reinforced by discoveries that the universe not as claimed before is static but expanding constantly. Today's science know about the universe as an expanding space and it is also written in the Last Testament: „And the heaven We constructed with strength, and indeed, We are [its] expander. "
    "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? " (Enbiya 21:30)
    Because of the scientific findings in research in connection to the beginning of the universe we can conclude that there must have been a beginning with which all in existence started. The Big Bang which is considered the starting point and cause of all existence doesn't give clear answer but rather encourages further questions that every scientist has to ask sooner or later: What was before the Big Bang? Because without cause there can't be any affect. And as energy can't get lost but only transformed into a different shape it cannot start to exist where there is no shape.
    In addition, the universe that was created through a great energy like the Big Bang is based on a highly balanced and precise equilibrium and couldn't have come to existence by mere coincidence. Because of the Big Bang, scientists found out that time and space were created which is the foundation of all in existence and gave it its form as we know it.
    Therefore they set a series of causations that brought forth the creation of the universe, and they named those in their theories.
    Time Zero
    They assume that in that time there was no existence, so neither space or time. In physics they would call that state t = 0 ("t" as in time).
    Anything before that point in time scientists cannot reveal, as their findings and research results are based on the so called laws of Physics and are bound by it.
    That time before the Big Bang is bound by it; therefore it cannot be explained by it.
    It is part of metaphysics and a gate whose threshold cannot be crossed without the special key necessary.
    This key that science is looking for can be found in the profession that there is one Master of Keys and His guardians:
    There is no other god, but the One, and Abraham is His messenger.
    There is no other god, but the One, and Moses is His messenger.
    There is no other god, but the One, and Jesus is His messenger.
    There is no other god, but the One, and Mohammed is His messenger.

  • Only those that accept one of these keys can pass through this gate. Otherwise they are excluded from the truth that lies beyond it.
    The shortest period of time that could be measured physically is 10 -43 seconds. This time span is in such a small dimension that it lies beyond the capacity of the human mind. But what exactly happened in that period of time, we cannot even imagine?
    Science says that at first the hydrogen atom was created, whose existence is viewed as some kind of a miracle. All other atoms came after the hydrogen atom into existence. If science is basing that assumption to be the start of the creation of the universe, the following question arises:
    Where did that first atom come from, when according to the laws of physics there is only being but there is no not-being? Where was that atom before?
    If time and space were created by the Big Bang and only then the foundation for all in existence was laid, in what construction of time and space did that Big Bang occur then? According to what order were the atoms of the rest of the elements combined and why were not only hydrogen atoms created out of all of these neutrons and protons? What rules did the electrons follow to move in circles around the nucleus in their assorted different numbers? Why do they move in circles around a nucleus?
    Under which law were the atoms created? How did atoms know in what number they should come together to make the different elements. How do the innumerous atoms, which are the basic elements of all things, keep up this constant order without which nothing could ever exist? Even humans that are attracted to each other are not capable to keep up that constant attraction. Why doesn't a single one of those innumerous atoms in the universe resist those physical decisions?

    According to scientific findings the whole order of the universe would break down if only one of those atoms were missing.
    Who is keeping up this constant harmonic order?
    How do the atoms communicate between each other and among each other?

    We know that the whole of existence is changing every moment. Who controls these changes? Because apparently everything keeps the same and all of these changes are done with the precision that couldn't have happened without a controlling power.
    How do these changes happen? Where does the being come from as it appears in existence?
    Where does the being go to as it leaves existence?

    These questions lead us to a conclusion. As a basis to the creation of hydrogen and its following atoms there must be a mighty power, a precise controlling power and a design in order. This precision in control and design of the universe exceeds all limits of the human mind. It contradicts the notion of a coincidental creation of the universe in all senses and clearly shows an act of creation by a creator.

    Scientists say that the laws of physics haven't changed since the first appearance of the Big Bang which supposedly happened 15 billion years ago. In addition, these laws were based on a very fine and well balanced equilibrium, so that the slightest change would cancel all structures and the whole order of the universe.

  • And this fine equilibrium that is the basis of the universe and all its parts makes all these theories about a mere coincidental creation of these parts, their formation to single atoms which then by accident find a precise inner order, look absurd.

    The same applies to the claim that the planets and galaxies in short all systems were only products of coincidence and coincidentally found order and equilibrium.

    The renowned professor of physics Stephen Hawking explained that all processes in the universe are based on a more fine and precise and unfathomable law.
    He said: "If the rate of expansion one second after the big bang had been smaller by even one part in a hundred thousand million million, the universe would have recollapsed."

    The Big Bang which is following such fine equations reveals clearly that time, space and matter didn't come into existence by themselves, but are the work of a most skilled person, of the Creator! It is impossible to view this universal entity with all its connections as a result of random coincidence. The assumption alone appears non-scientific.

    In the opinion of scientists, the dimension of time was brought into the existence just by the Big Bang. If the Big Bang was the cause for the creation of time and space, as they can only exist within a universe, the cause for the Big Bang must have lied beyond space as well as being independent of them. That is why it is useless to look for a creator within matter itself.

    If the cause of an event lies outside of it, doesn't it then make it necessary to look for the thing responsible outside of the things that appeared because of it, in this case outside of matter? This alone shows us, that the Creator is above all dimensions of the universe and not, as many claim, inside this universe or even itself.

    But still most people and especially scientists are looking for God inside of matter. If they can't find Him in it, they say: "He doesn't exist, because we looked for Him, but didn't find Him."
    That isn't sincere! Basically, we know for sure where to find Him. As if out of spite, they look for Him, where they shouldn't. If they had truly sincere intentions, they would see His power and appearance even inside of matter. But how do you want to show a blind or those that pretend to be blind, the light of the sun?

    In the one hand they hold a microscope, in the other hand a telescope, searching:
    "If there is God, where is He?"

    O human, how smart would it be to assume to find a human inside of an atom? You shouldn't look for a human inside of it. Where should you look then for God? Inside of the universe which is in relation to God smaller than an atom is for a human? Atoms are the basic elements of matter, without it there would be no existence. Every cell of a human can only be built through their existence. The mechanisms inside of an atom and the interaction between electrons, protons, neutrons and quarks is so perfect and complete that you are just in great awe and astonishment. It doesn't matter whether you are a believer or not. But actually the most astonishing thing is that these mechanisms seem to function by themselves, at least outside of the control of humans.

  • In reality, the human has no control over his body and the processes inside of it, left alone about the universe. All events and processes in it are being initiated and led by a secret power. It keeps up the order and functioning of all things and coordinates them.
    All systems of the human body are busy constantly to serve the human, without his conscious influence on them. His organs and extremities are capable of and ready to work even without his consciousness. It is within his will to use his extremities, but their condition to even function, is out of his hands. The human can decide for example, what he supplies to his body through his mouth, but everything else continues independently. This means that everything in concern of the body itself, works independently of the human. But how can that be? If the human were to use his sense and sincerely think about it, he would realize that the Creator with His superior will is watching and taking care of everything.

    If the human weren't meddling with this mysterious process, he wouldn't harm nature, neither. The order of nature was disrupted mostly because of the human's desire to control and exploit it. However he destroys the whole system, as everything is connected in the universe.
    That is the reason why there are so many natural catastrophes these days. Global warming, earthquakes, floods and many other catastrophes are only examples and prove what our statement.
    The human is unreasonable. He doesn't want to learn from history of men and realize that whenever humanity went against the Creator and His order their deeds lead to destruction and fall. The most stubborn he acts the more he harms himself and the environment.
    It is not for nothing that in its materialistic orientation humanity has reached a bottomless abyss in which they will soon fall without spirituality. That is why all forms of crises and catastrophes go hand in hand these days.
    Humanity wants to have complete control in its hands. They don't know that God would hand them all of control, if they were His friends. Because the human was created for that purpose: to be His deputy on Earth. Like a blind person humans look into the universe. They may see the order there is and ask how all in existence from the smallest to the greatest is functioning. The power and might behind it and the one controlling it they don't see. Don't they realize how the particles inside an atom interact without complications and crashing into each other?

    Even though many electrons are buzzing inside space that not even the strongest electron microscope can make them visible, and there is an enormous traffic, they are not crashing into each other. A crash on this level would have catastrophic consequences on our level. Because it would mean the end of the atom whose enormous energy then would need to take on another form. That would mean our end. From the smallest to the biggest there also must be control so that existence can persist.

    Electrons are flying around the core of an atom at an incredible speed of 1000 km/s without hitting each other. This fact shows that they are all in perfect order namely on lanes that we call orbits. The fact that completely identical electrons are on different orbits can only mean that there is a divine design. On a much bigger level you will find that wonderful design again namely in the solar system.

  • Planets of different density and speed are going around the sun as their center. Even among this system which is bigger than we can ever imagine everything is working smoothly. In concern of big dimensions we might be able to imagine it. That is why we ask how can it be that electrons can go around a core never leaving their orbit or crashing into each other, even though that space is so tiny and their speed is unbelievably great. How else can such an order be maintained if not the design was brought into existence by a Creator. You can find the following in the Last Testament: „It is not allowable for the sun to reach the moon, nor does the night overtake the day, but each, in an orbit, is swimming. " (Yasin 36:40)

    Scientists are racking their brains about this mysterious equilibrium in which everything is in. They try to find the answers by looking at non-proven theories:
    The electromagnetic force
    The strong nuclear power
    The weak nuclear power
    The gravitational force

    We ask the following question: Why does the same charge sometimes repel each other and sometimes attract each other? Protons have all the same charge. The core of an atom is made of protons that, even though they have the same charge, attract each other.
    The explanation by scientists about this seeming contradiction can never go beyond hypothesis and assumptions, as this space due to his tiny dimension can never be explored completely. They are neither clear facts nor real proofs. That's why they can't say anything against that fact nor for it.

    The following explanation makes it easy even though it wouldn't make the contradiction easier to understand. Scientists only needed to say that this fact is completely contradictory to the known laws of physics and that's why it's highly likely that there is a force which exceeds the human mind. That would be their chance to give proof through the science that there is a Creator at work that can change the state of the very same thing into the completely opposite state. If they were to profess that the doors to His understanding would open to them. But otherwise they have to imagine how could have come to that. Why does the same charge in the core of an atom not repel each other? Why do protons in the core attract each other with such force and form chains even though they should repel each other with the same force due to the same charge? Because a proton at the core is completely identical with every other proton that is moving around in a free state. In its structure there is no difference. If you are of the opinion that this behavior can be attributed to the proton itself, it should have the same characteristics outside of the core.
    But this is not the case. That they are repelling each other due to their electromagnetic forces outside and that they attract each other due to nuclear power inside the core of the atom is according to the laws physics illogical. In its closer vicinity there is no other particle that could trigger such a changeable behavior of the proton. This means that these forces are not part of the proton. Scientists offer the following theory as an answer. For the protons not to repel each other, the protons are constantly turning into neutrons that in return become protons again.

    This implies that they are constantly changing. But how is that supposed to work? How does this happen while they are at such a high speed and within that short period of time that can hardly be measured? Did they see that process with their own eyes or did they measure it with their devices? No, they haven't. They assume that it has to be that way, because they have no better explanation. At least not one that lies within the realms of physics.

  • The Lord is the Unchangeable. The saints say about Him: "Allah Himself is the Unchangeable Absolute. But all in existence is under constant change by Allah in every moment."
    In a nutshell it means: Allah, the Unchangeable. Allah, the All Changing.

    If scientists were to accept the Creator, they would see that thousands of years ago, He already told about all universal connections and the truths of creation through His prophets. And that, although they had no knowledge about technology or progress, the prophets told about the secrets of existence, not needing any microscope or telescope.

    As it turns out all what they have told about is the truth, but it still exceeds the human mind as it did then. In concern of science it may have gained insight, and it has dismissed as much, as well. What value do those insights have? Either you have understood or not.
    What the prophets once told is still valid today, as it is written in a verse:
    "Indeed, Allah is ever, over all things, a perfect Accountant." (Nisa, 4:86)

    What does that mean? Allah is the One who creates all of existence every second anew, in new form and order. The laws and their validity in existence are following His order of existence and were created by Him. And as no being ever repeats itself in existence, but is always new and unique, these laws are always new and don't repeat themselves. There are no laws in the universe that always stay the same, but they change with every moment of new creation. And nobody is capable by definition of the laws to be an equal to the Creator.

    According to our knowledge of the Holy Verses of the Quran the Lord of all Worlds is in His creative design without any flaw and mistake. Therefore all of creation, beginning from the smallest, is based on that Divine Order, which is not static. This means that once brought into existence, it doesn't continue in that way, but is created anew with every moment. Every attribute of the Lord needs to work and radiate at all times, for an existence of creation even to be in! This at its basis means that the Lord is creating without a break and in every moment, but each new creation is never similar in its nature and character traits to a prior creation.
    That is the meaning of His names "El-Musawwir", the Designer, and "El-Halik", the Creator.
    These are aspects of Allah, the Unchanging, Allah, the All-Changing. No divine attribute is being reflected in creation in the same way. Otherwise Allah wouldn't be Allah! In that He shows His absolute omnipotence, His divine knowledge and His unlimited artistry.

    Scientists these days see believers and their knowledge about existence inferior to them. One reason is that they are cut off true knowledge, divine knowledge. Another reason is that they believe their findings to be of great value. That is why they cannot see that their findings are way behind the knowledge of the prophets about the universe and existence, and they brought it thousands of years ago. Only today do they discover all of the connections inside existence, about which the prophets

  • already knew about, when there was no technology, but only knowledge transfer with their Lord and without much trouble and energy. We ask: Isn't science in concern of their level of knowledge maybe at least 1500 years too late?

     

    There is only one working force and this belongs to Allah. He alone has power and strength that He will show whenever and wherever He wishes. In different situations and at different times His power appears in most different ways. The universe with all of its endless atoms and seemingly never ending galaxies only exists because Allah wants it to be. And in every moment He keeps up all of His creation.
    „His command is only when He intends a thing that He says to it, "Be," and it is. " (Yasin 36:82)

    If scientists were to put their laws of physics under the scope of the Divine Law of Omnipotence, they would have had so much more findings. But this way they are stuck with their laws of physics and can't get passed it into an area, they call metaphysics. There you can find true insight. Until today science wasn't able to ascertain the origin of the force which lies within the atom and therefore the entire universe. Are these things really called like that? Every creature has its own name and the Creator knows it.

    Those kinds of discoveries are then being praised as great insights. In truth the process of technological development and invention is nothing else but combining two things that already exist and to bring them into a different form.

    If you look at it like this, scientists are only playing around, like little kids who get handed Lego bricks to build figures with. Children are happy when they have created something. Adults are pretending that they have accomplished something big. And the same goes with scientist, from the point of view of saints and prophets. For them those discoveries are nothing great.

    When will we praise science?
    Once they came to the conclusion by their means, that this fine balance of existence was created out of nothing by the power of the Creator. Then they would have found the creator with their knowledge and would appreciate His creative power. Then we will value highly their intelligence.
    Because it cannot be, that science is being valued highly and honored with Nobel prizes, for just connecting A with B, but the Lord who created all in existence out of nothing, is not being honored and appreciated. That is a hypocrite's appreciation.

    But they would have the chance to see with their own eyes in all of their areas His work of order in existence where everything is doing its job. Despite this fact that they are not asking themselves who has the control, makes us ask the question why they don't see, as they are eye witnesses to His work. They know how hard it is to have normal flowing traffic on the streets, without chaos or crashes, but they don't ask themselves how there are no troubles around that tiny atom with all its traffic of electrons.

    Facing this fact how can you still insist on it being a coincidence as origin of existence? Well, let's assume it's all a coincidence. How can it be that with all these basic elements this coincidence is happened in the same way?


  • You can never put coincidence as a cause for such an order. If we view existence to be a chance of luck, we would have to say, that all of existence is the result of the very lucky coincidence. That would be completely illogical because the terms coincidence and luck are used in a context where events don't follow the rule, but never when there is an apparent order and control. And that existence is following such an order and control is out of the question. The evidence is starring in your face. This piece of work, in your, the reader's, face.

    For as long as there is a universe, it also means that there is an order that is being controlled. Because as we mentioned above, the whole universe is based on a precise equilibrium, outside of which no existence is possible.

    Because some play dumb and assume, that the existence is being maintained through lucky coincidence in every moment we ask the question, whether there were always lucky coincidences for all those 15 billion years. According to the laws of probability with two possibilities both can happen in the same around. This means the chances are 50:50. Then during all that time in which the universe has been existing, no unlucky coincidence ever occurred that would have destroyed all of the existence? We believed that science is capable of more.

    The only explanation of this order is that the Lord has created everything as a sign of His omnipotence lawfully and in order.

    In many places of the Last Testament Allah has revealed the knowledge of creation 1500 years ago. This knowledge is with the prophets. If you want it today, you can get it from their deputies of these times - the saints, the awliyas. Following there are some verses of the Holy Quran:

    „Allah has already set for everything a decreed extent. "
    (Talaq, 65:3)

    „He has created each thing and determined it with precise determination. "
    (Furqan, 25:2)

    „And everything with Him is by due measure. He is Knower of the unseen and the witnessed, the Grand, the Exalted. "
    (Ra'd, 13:8-9)

    „And the earth - We have spread it and cast therein firmly set mountains and caused to grow therein something of every well-balanced thing. "
    (Hijr, 15:13)

    „The sun and the moon move by precise calculation, "
    (Rahman, 55:5)

    „And the heaven He raised and imposed the balance"
    (Rahman, 55:7)

    We can conclude from this that the whole universe from the atom to the galaxies was neither created by the mere coincidence nor does it continue to exist through one. Imagine that a human takes form by the combination of atoms, comes to this world

  • and nourishes himself with atoms and grows through these. Later he studies in a school building made out of atoms and reads books that are also only a combination of atoms. Then he gets handed a diploma on which it is stated "Engineer of Nuclear Sciences" . This human then goes into the public and says: „Atoms have no consciousness. The order within them is usual and was just created by accident. "If that is so where does it take the consciousness, the will power and the mind as a basis to even hold that speech?

    The inner mechanisms of a cell are made of atoms whose mechanisms are made of protons, neutrons and at their core quarks. These mechanisms were constructed so splendidly that they whether they are believers or not put any human at awe. An essential part of it is that during the whole lifespan of a human they are functioning every moment completely independent of the control of the human. For those humans with the mind this fact is an open proof that these mechanisms are the work of the Creator who is putting everything in an order. And He gives them a certain place in a system that He controls and is taking care of.

    Scientists see these incomprehensibly complex and precise works of art and mechanisms but not the One that is behind them. And He uses them to demonstrate His omnipotence and creative power to get the human to look for Him, the Originator of these pieces of art.
    For example we see these glowing things in the night sky that resemble the stars so remarkably, the satellites. They seem to just hang there in emptiness. If we didn't know that they are satellites, we would think they are stars. Did those satellites get to their position all by themselves?
    If we would say yes, scientists would call us crazy because it is completely out of the question and impossible that a satellite can get to its position all by himself. If we were to wait for it to happen by a coincidence it wouldn't even take an eternity for it to actually happen. They would tell us that everybody with common sense understands that satellites were brought up there by someone and needs it to be controlled by outside for it to stay on its orbit.

    Then we ask the question: „How can it be that scientists claim the stars in the universe were put on that position that they still maintain, by a mere coincidence? " Not even a satellite can get to its place without a hand to put him in his position and to control him. Why should it be any different with the stars? What hand put them in their place?
    They don't like those questions because they feel they are being cornered. On every level of their science they actually always come to the one and only explanation: the Creator! Immediately they change direction and work on an alternative explanation, and that is also futile! Wherever they run to they will always find the Creator as the Originator of all existence.
    „In whatever direction you set your eyes you will always find Allah there", says the Lord in the Holy Quran!

    The century of materialism comes to an end and the 21st century, the spiritual one, has begun. This would be completely different than the 20th century because the age of lies is over. And the truth will now come to light. The good news about this time had been told to believers by the Holy Prophet, may peace be upon him, 1500 years ago. He told that the 20th century will be the century of tyranny, lies and

  • deception and that the 21st century will be the century of order, justice and light.

    Now the liars are being cornered by their lies. The saints won't let them have one moment of quiet. If they know besides those six directions in space another one, they can try to take flight there. We have them but they are locked to them. Because outside of these six (directions) you can get beyond matter. And a permission to enter these areas has only been given to believers. Because the materialists don't believe in a Creator, they are bound by the matter, they worship.

    Their only hope of rescue would be in accepting the Creator, who created all worlds. If they are looking for this exit and don't find it, we will be at their service as long as they are sincere and honest. Because it is our task, to lead humans to their Lord.

    Conclusion: Science these days confirm with their discoveries and findings more than ever the Holy Verses and traditions of the prophet Mohammed, may peace be upon him, 1500 years ago. The scientists live the Holy Verse that says: „We shall show them soon through our signs in the universe and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that this is the Truth. ", but they haven't realized it yet. But the Lord tells that He will send more signs „...until it becomes clear to them that this is the Truth. " That is why we hope that this essay will wake those up who were meant to meet these Truths, so that they may realize them when they see them.

    Whether this will work or not, is up to Allah – He opens the hearts of His servants. We are only doing our duty by trying to please the wish of our Lord: To serve humans.

    Sheikh Esref Efendi

  • We are living in materialistic times, where everything is being assessed and discussed by scientific logic. My Grand sheikh gave me an order and inspired me to write an essay with the means of logic about the topic, for which many expect it to be a domain of today's modern science. Contrary to common belief, this field belongs to faith rather than science. Because it contains the question about the history of creation and this is for those that try to explain it without a creator, unfathomable.
    For this essay we use all statements up till now and findings of science in concern of creation. We compare these with the Revelations of the Creator through the Holy Verses of the Quran, His Last Testament. Because according to our faith and knowledge it is the Creator that He created everything in existence from nothing.
    With this work we intend to be useful for all of those who search and have questions. That is why we are hopeful and confident that this essay will reach all of those for whom it was meant to be. We don't expect to reach everybody, because we know about the ego of the humans and that it is very hard for them to separate themselves from deeply rooted knowledge. We find these especially with those that tried to gain knowledge themselves such as researchers and scientists.
    That is the reason why this essay was written for those people that willingly accept a Creator and observe His creation through the eyes of faith as well as common sense. To those who do not try to stay clear of the influences of their ego, this essay will make no sense.
    If we were to describe all of existence in only a few words, we would call it mysterious energy that is flowing in emptiness.
    First theories said that the universe is without limits and has always existed. They assumed the state of the universe to be everlasting and unchanging. In this model, the so called Steady-State-Theory, which was popular in the first half of the 21st century, they neither assumed a beginning nor an end of the universe. This means that according to this theory the universe existed since eternity and will also continue to exist for eternity. This theory is the ideal basis for the materialistic philosophy, and they assumed the universe is in a static state. Later scientists proved this assumption to be wrong by establishing theories based on their discoveries and findings that the universe has a beginning in time, such as the Big Bang Theory.
    All these theories were developed as alternatives to the story of creation as told by the prophets. Because the Lord already sent his prophets all the knowledge that scientists discovered only these days through modern technology.
    But there is also wisdom behind that. Because all of those discoveries were not made by Muslims. It were non-Muslims that brought science to its current state. If it were Muslims, they could have said they wanted to prove through scientific findings that their Prophet and the Last Testament were actually sent by God. But it is the other way around. Because today's science was furthered by non-Muslims and only nowadays those truths outside and inside this world about which the last prophet told 1500 years ago are proven right through scientific findings. Concerning the latter, it is written in the Last Testament: „We shall show them soon through our signs in the universe and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that this is the Truth. " (Fussilat 51:53).


  • The discoveries of science don't quite astonish believers who already accepted the truths of the revelations and already have knowledge about the universal connections told by Holy Books.
    As mentioned above science assumes according to the recent findings that there is a beginning of the universe, the Big Bang, which is thought to be the beginning of the whole existence. In the last testament it is written: „His command is only when He intends a thing that He says to it, "Be," and it is. " (Yasin 36:82).
    This theory is being reinforced by discoveries that the universe not as claimed before is static but expanding constantly. Today's science know about the universe as an expanding space and it is also written in the Last Testament: „And the heaven We constructed with strength, and indeed, We are [its] expander. "
    "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? " (Enbiya 21:30)
    Because of the scientific findings in research in connection to the beginning of the universe we can conclude that there must have been a beginning with which all in existence started. The Big Bang which is considered the starting point and cause of all existence doesn't give clear answer but rather encourages further questions that every scientist has to ask sooner or later: What was before the Big Bang? Because without cause there can't be any affect. And as energy can't get lost but only transformed into a different shape it cannot start to exist where there is no shape.
    In addition, the universe that was created through a great energy like the Big Bang is based on a highly balanced and precise equilibrium and couldn't have come to existence by mere coincidence. Because of the Big Bang, scientists found out that time and space were created which is the foundation of all in existence and gave it its form as we know it.
    Therefore they set a series of causations that brought forth the creation of the universe, and they named those in their theories.
    Time Zero
    They assume that in that time there was no existence, so neither space or time. In physics they would call that state t = 0 ("t" as in time).
    Anything before that point in time scientists cannot reveal, as their findings and research results are based on the so called laws of Physics and are bound by it.
    That time before the Big Bang is bound by it; therefore it cannot be explained by it.
    It is part of metaphysics and a gate whose threshold cannot be crossed without the special key necessary.
    This key that science is looking for can be found in the profession that there is one Master of Keys and His guardians:
    There is no other god, but the One, and Abraham is His messenger.
    There is no other god, but the One, and Moses is His messenger.
    There is no other god, but the One, and Jesus is His messenger.
    There is no other god, but the One, and Mohammed is His messenger.

  • Only those that accept one of these keys can pass through this gate. Otherwise they are excluded from the truth that lies beyond it.
    The shortest period of time that could be measured physically is 10 -43 seconds. This time span is in such a small dimension that it lies beyond the capacity of the human mind. But what exactly happened in that period of time, we cannot even imagine?
    Science says that at first the hydrogen atom was created, whose existence is viewed as some kind of a miracle. All other atoms came after the hydrogen atom into existence. If science is basing that assumption to be the start of the creation of the universe, the following question arises:
    Where did that first atom come from, when according to the laws of physics there is only being but there is no not-being? Where was that atom before?
    If time and space were created by the Big Bang and only then the foundation for all in existence was laid, in what construction of time and space did that Big Bang occur then? According to what order were the atoms of the rest of the elements combined and why were not only hydrogen atoms created out of all of these neutrons and protons? What rules did the electrons follow to move in circles around the nucleus in their assorted different numbers? Why do they move in circles around a nucleus?
    Under which law were the atoms created? How did atoms know in what number they should come together to make the different elements. How do the innumerous atoms, which are the basic elements of all things, keep up this constant order without which nothing could ever exist? Even humans that are attracted to each other are not capable to keep up that constant attraction. Why doesn't a single one of those innumerous atoms in the universe resist those physical decisions?

    According to scientific findings the whole order of the universe would break down if only one of those atoms were missing.
    Who is keeping up this constant harmonic order?
    How do the atoms communicate between each other and among each other?

    We know that the whole of existence is changing every moment. Who controls these changes? Because apparently everything keeps the same and all of these changes are done with the precision that couldn't have happened without a controlling power.
    How do these changes happen? Where does the being come from as it appears in existence?
    Where does the being go to as it leaves existence?

    These questions lead us to a conclusion. As a basis to the creation of hydrogen and its following atoms there must be a mighty power, a precise controlling power and a design in order. This precision in control and design of the universe exceeds all limits of the human mind. It contradicts the notion of a coincidental creation of the universe in all senses and clearly shows an act of creation by a creator.

    Scientists say that the laws of physics haven't changed since the first appearance of the Big Bang which supposedly happened 15 billion years ago. In addition, these laws were based on a very fine and well balanced equilibrium, so that the slightest change would cancel all structures and the whole order of the universe.

  • And this fine equilibrium that is the basis of the universe and all its parts makes all these theories about a mere coincidental creation of these parts, their formation to single atoms which then by accident find a precise inner order, look absurd.

    The same applies to the claim that the planets and galaxies in short all systems were only products of coincidence and coincidentally found order and equilibrium.

    The renowned professor of physics Stephen Hawking explained that all processes in the universe are based on a more fine and precise and unfathomable law.
    He said: "If the rate of expansion one second after the big bang had been smaller by even one part in a hundred thousand million million, the universe would have recollapsed."

    The Big Bang which is following such fine equations reveals clearly that time, space and matter didn't come into existence by themselves, but are the work of a most skilled person, of the Creator! It is impossible to view this universal entity with all its connections as a result of random coincidence. The assumption alone appears non-scientific.

    In the opinion of scientists, the dimension of time was brought into the existence just by the Big Bang. If the Big Bang was the cause for the creation of time and space, as they can only exist within a universe, the cause for the Big Bang must have lied beyond space as well as being independent of them. That is why it is useless to look for a creator within matter itself.

    If the cause of an event lies outside of it, doesn't it then make it necessary to look for the thing responsible outside of the things that appeared because of it, in this case outside of matter? This alone shows us, that the Creator is above all dimensions of the universe and not, as many claim, inside this universe or even itself.

    But still most people and especially scientists are looking for God inside of matter. If they can't find Him in it, they say: "He doesn't exist, because we looked for Him, but didn't find Him."
    That isn't sincere! Basically, we know for sure where to find Him. As if out of spite, they look for Him, where they shouldn't. If they had truly sincere intentions, they would see His power and appearance even inside of matter. But how do you want to show a blind or those that pretend to be blind, the light of the sun?

    In the one hand they hold a microscope, in the other hand a telescope, searching:
    "If there is God, where is He?"

    O human, how smart would it be to assume to find a human inside of an atom? You shouldn't look for a human inside of it. Where should you look then for God? Inside of the universe which is in relation to God smaller than an atom is for a human? Atoms are the basic elements of matter, without it there would be no existence. Every cell of a human can only be built through their existence. The mechanisms inside of an atom and the interaction between electrons, protons, neutrons and quarks is so perfect and complete that you are just in great awe and astonishment. It doesn't matter whether you are a believer or not. But actually the most astonishing thing is that these mechanisms seem to function by themselves, at least outside of the control of humans.

  • In reality, the human has no control over his body and the processes inside of it, left alone about the universe. All events and processes in it are being initiated and led by a secret power. It keeps up the order and functioning of all things and coordinates them.
    All systems of the human body are busy constantly to serve the human, without his conscious influence on them. His organs and extremities are capable of and ready to work even without his consciousness. It is within his will to use his extremities, but their condition to even function, is out of his hands. The human can decide for example, what he supplies to his body through his mouth, but everything else continues independently. This means that everything in concern of the body itself, works independently of the human. But how can that be? If the human were to use his sense and sincerely think about it, he would realize that the Creator with His superior will is watching and taking care of everything.

    If the human weren't meddling with this mysterious process, he wouldn't harm nature, neither. The order of nature was disrupted mostly because of the human's desire to control and exploit it. However he destroys the whole system, as everything is connected in the universe.
    That is the reason why there are so many natural catastrophes these days. Global warming, earthquakes, floods and many other catastrophes are only examples and prove what our statement.
    The human is unreasonable. He doesn't want to learn from history of men and realize that whenever humanity went against the Creator and His order their deeds lead to destruction and fall. The most stubborn he acts the more he harms himself and the environment.
    It is not for nothing that in its materialistic orientation humanity has reached a bottomless abyss in which they will soon fall without spirituality. That is why all forms of crises and catastrophes go hand in hand these days.
    Humanity wants to have complete control in its hands. They don't know that God would hand them all of control, if they were His friends. Because the human was created for that purpose: to be His deputy on Earth. Like a blind person humans look into the universe. They may see the order there is and ask how all in existence from the smallest to the greatest is functioning. The power and might behind it and the one controlling it they don't see. Don't they realize how the particles inside an atom interact without complications and crashing into each other?

    Even though many electrons are buzzing inside space that not even the strongest electron microscope can make them visible, and there is an enormous traffic, they are not crashing into each other. A crash on this level would have catastrophic consequences on our level. Because it would mean the end of the atom whose enormous energy then would need to take on another form. That would mean our end. From the smallest to the biggest there also must be control so that existence can persist.

    Electrons are flying around the core of an atom at an incredible speed of 1000 km/s without hitting each other. This fact shows that they are all in perfect order namely on lanes that we call orbits. The fact that completely identical electrons are on different orbits can only mean that there is a divine design. On a much bigger level you will find that wonderful design again namely in the solar system.

  • Planets of different density and speed are going around the sun as their center. Even among this system which is bigger than we can ever imagine everything is working smoothly. In concern of big dimensions we might be able to imagine it. That is why we ask how can it be that electrons can go around a core never leaving their orbit or crashing into each other, even though that space is so tiny and their speed is unbelievably great. How else can such an order be maintained if not the design was brought into existence by a Creator. You can find the following in the Last Testament: „It is not allowable for the sun to reach the moon, nor does the night overtake the day, but each, in an orbit, is swimming. " (Yasin 36:40)

    Scientists are racking their brains about this mysterious equilibrium in which everything is in. They try to find the answers by looking at non-proven theories:
    The electromagnetic force
    The strong nuclear power
    The weak nuclear power
    The gravitational force

    We ask the following question: Why does the same charge sometimes repel each other and sometimes attract each other? Protons have all the same charge. The core of an atom is made of protons that, even though they have the same charge, attract each other.
    The explanation by scientists about this seeming contradiction can never go beyond hypothesis and assumptions, as this space due to his tiny dimension can never be explored completely. They are neither clear facts nor real proofs. That's why they can't say anything against that fact nor for it.

    The following explanation makes it easy even though it wouldn't make the contradiction easier to understand. Scientists only needed to say that this fact is completely contradictory to the known laws of physics and that's why it's highly likely that there is a force which exceeds the human mind. That would be their chance to give proof through the science that there is a Creator at work that can change the state of the very same thing into the completely opposite state. If they were to profess that the doors to His understanding would open to them. But otherwise they have to imagine how could have come to that. Why does the same charge in the core of an atom not repel each other? Why do protons in the core attract each other with such force and form chains even though they should repel each other with the same force due to the same charge? Because a proton at the core is completely identical with every other proton that is moving around in a free state. In its structure there is no difference. If you are of the opinion that this behavior can be attributed to the proton itself, it should have the same characteristics outside of the core.
    But this is not the case. That they are repelling each other due to their electromagnetic forces outside and that they attract each other due to nuclear power inside the core of the atom is according to the laws physics illogical. In its closer vicinity there is no other particle that could trigger such a changeable behavior of the proton. This means that these forces are not part of the proton. Scientists offer the following theory as an answer. For the protons not to repel each other, the protons are constantly turning into neutrons that in return become protons again.

    This implies that they are constantly changing. But how is that supposed to work? How does this happen while they are at such a high speed and within that short period of time that can hardly be measured? Did they see that process with their own eyes or did they measure it with their devices? No, they haven't. They assume that it has to be that way, because they have no better explanation. At least not one that lies within the realms of physics.

  • The Lord is the Unchangeable. The saints say about Him: "Allah Himself is the Unchangeable Absolute. But all in existence is under constant change by Allah in every moment."
    In a nutshell it means: Allah, the Unchangeable. Allah, the All Changing.

    If scientists were to accept the Creator, they would see that thousands of years ago, He already told about all universal connections and the truths of creation through His prophets. And that, although they had no knowledge about technology or progress, the prophets told about the secrets of existence, not needing any microscope or telescope.

    As it turns out all what they have told about is the truth, but it still exceeds the human mind as it did then. In concern of science it may have gained insight, and it has dismissed as much, as well. What value do those insights have? Either you have understood or not.
    What the prophets once told is still valid today, as it is written in a verse:
    "Indeed, Allah is ever, over all things, a perfect Accountant." (Nisa, 4:86)

    What does that mean? Allah is the One who creates all of existence every second anew, in new form and order. The laws and their validity in existence are following His order of existence and were created by Him. And as no being ever repeats itself in existence, but is always new and unique, these laws are always new and don't repeat themselves. There are no laws in the universe that always stay the same, but they change with every moment of new creation. And nobody is capable by definition of the laws to be an equal to the Creator.

    According to our knowledge of the Holy Verses of the Quran the Lord of all Worlds is in His creative design without any flaw and mistake. Therefore all of creation, beginning from the smallest, is based on that Divine Order, which is not static. This means that once brought into existence, it doesn't continue in that way, but is created anew with every moment. Every attribute of the Lord needs to work and radiate at all times, for an existence of creation even to be in! This at its basis means that the Lord is creating without a break and in every moment, but each new creation is never similar in its nature and character traits to a prior creation.
    That is the meaning of His names "El-Musawwir", the Designer, and "El-Halik", the Creator.
    These are aspects of Allah, the Unchanging, Allah, the All-Changing. No divine attribute is being reflected in creation in the same way. Otherwise Allah wouldn't be Allah! In that He shows His absolute omnipotence, His divine knowledge and His unlimited artistry.

    Scientists these days see believers and their knowledge about existence inferior to them. One reason is that they are cut off true knowledge, divine knowledge. Another reason is that they believe their findings to be of great value. That is why they cannot see that their findings are way behind the knowledge of the prophets about the universe and existence, and they brought it thousands of years ago. Only today do they discover all of the connections inside existence, about which the prophets

  • already knew about, when there was no technology, but only knowledge transfer with their Lord and without much trouble and energy. We ask: Isn't science in concern of their level of knowledge maybe at least 1500 years too late?

     

    There is only one working force and this belongs to Allah. He alone has power and strength that He will show whenever and wherever He wishes. In different situations and at different times His power appears in most different ways. The universe with all of its endless atoms and seemingly never ending galaxies only exists because Allah wants it to be. And in every moment He keeps up all of His creation.
    „His command is only when He intends a thing that He says to it, "Be," and it is. " (Yasin 36:82)

    If scientists were to put their laws of physics under the scope of the Divine Law of Omnipotence, they would have had so much more findings. But this way they are stuck with their laws of physics and can't get passed it into an area, they call metaphysics. There you can find true insight. Until today science wasn't able to ascertain the origin of the force which lies within the atom and therefore the entire universe. Are these things really called like that? Every creature has its own name and the Creator knows it.

    Those kinds of discoveries are then being praised as great insights. In truth the process of technological development and invention is nothing else but combining two things that already exist and to bring them into a different form.

    If you look at it like this, scientists are only playing around, like little kids who get handed Lego bricks to build figures with. Children are happy when they have created something. Adults are pretending that they have accomplished something big. And the same goes with scientist, from the point of view of saints and prophets. For them those discoveries are nothing great.

    When will we praise science?
    Once they came to the conclusion by their means, that this fine balance of existence was created out of nothing by the power of the Creator. Then they would have found the creator with their knowledge and would appreciate His creative power. Then we will value highly their intelligence.
    Because it cannot be, that science is being valued highly and honored with Nobel prizes, for just connecting A with B, but the Lord who created all in existence out of nothing, is not being honored and appreciated. That is a hypocrite's appreciation.

    But they would have the chance to see with their own eyes in all of their areas His work of order in existence where everything is doing its job. Despite this fact that they are not asking themselves who has the control, makes us ask the question why they don't see, as they are eye witnesses to His work. They know how hard it is to have normal flowing traffic on the streets, without chaos or crashes, but they don't ask themselves how there are no troubles around that tiny atom with all its traffic of electrons.

    Facing this fact how can you still insist on it being a coincidence as origin of existence? Well, let's assume it's all a coincidence. How can it be that with all these basic elements this coincidence is happened in the same way?


  • You can never put coincidence as a cause for such an order. If we view existence to be a chance of luck, we would have to say, that all of existence is the result of the very lucky coincidence. That would be completely illogical because the terms coincidence and luck are used in a context where events don't follow the rule, but never when there is an apparent order and control. And that existence is following such an order and control is out of the question. The evidence is starring in your face. This piece of work, in your, the reader's, face.

    For as long as there is a universe, it also means that there is an order that is being controlled. Because as we mentioned above, the whole universe is based on a precise equilibrium, outside of which no existence is possible.

    Because some play dumb and assume, that the existence is being maintained through lucky coincidence in every moment we ask the question, whether there were always lucky coincidences for all those 15 billion years. According to the laws of probability with two possibilities both can happen in the same around. This means the chances are 50:50. Then during all that time in which the universe has been existing, no unlucky coincidence ever occurred that would have destroyed all of the existence? We believed that science is capable of more.

    The only explanation of this order is that the Lord has created everything as a sign of His omnipotence lawfully and in order.

    In many places of the Last Testament Allah has revealed the knowledge of creation 1500 years ago. This knowledge is with the prophets. If you want it today, you can get it from their deputies of these times - the saints, the awliyas. Following there are some verses of the Holy Quran:

    „Allah has already set for everything a decreed extent. "
    (Talaq, 65:3)

    „He has created each thing and determined it with precise determination. "
    (Furqan, 25:2)

    „And everything with Him is by due measure. He is Knower of the unseen and the witnessed, the Grand, the Exalted. "
    (Ra'd, 13:8-9)

    „And the earth - We have spread it and cast therein firmly set mountains and caused to grow therein something of every well-balanced thing. "
    (Hijr, 15:13)

    „The sun and the moon move by precise calculation, "
    (Rahman, 55:5)

    „And the heaven He raised and imposed the balance"
    (Rahman, 55:7)

    We can conclude from this that the whole universe from the atom to the galaxies was neither created by the mere coincidence nor does it continue to exist through one. Imagine that a human takes form by the combination of atoms, comes to this world

  • and nourishes himself with atoms and grows through these. Later he studies in a school building made out of atoms and reads books that are also only a combination of atoms. Then he gets handed a diploma on which it is stated "Engineer of Nuclear Sciences" . This human then goes into the public and says: „Atoms have no consciousness. The order within them is usual and was just created by accident. "If that is so where does it take the consciousness, the will power and the mind as a basis to even hold that speech?

    The inner mechanisms of a cell are made of atoms whose mechanisms are made of protons, neutrons and at their core quarks. These mechanisms were constructed so splendidly that they whether they are believers or not put any human at awe. An essential part of it is that during the whole lifespan of a human they are functioning every moment completely independent of the control of the human. For those humans with the mind this fact is an open proof that these mechanisms are the work of the Creator who is putting everything in an order. And He gives them a certain place in a system that He controls and is taking care of.

    Scientists see these incomprehensibly complex and precise works of art and mechanisms but not the One that is behind them. And He uses them to demonstrate His omnipotence and creative power to get the human to look for Him, the Originator of these pieces of art.
    For example we see these glowing things in the night sky that resemble the stars so remarkably, the satellites. They seem to just hang there in emptiness. If we didn't know that they are satellites, we would think they are stars. Did those satellites get to their position all by themselves?
    If we would say yes, scientists would call us crazy because it is completely out of the question and impossible that a satellite can get to its position all by himself. If we were to wait for it to happen by a coincidence it wouldn't even take an eternity for it to actually happen. They would tell us that everybody with common sense understands that satellites were brought up there by someone and needs it to be controlled by outside for it to stay on its orbit.

    Then we ask the question: „How can it be that scientists claim the stars in the universe were put on that position that they still maintain, by a mere coincidence? " Not even a satellite can get to its place without a hand to put him in his position and to control him. Why should it be any different with the stars? What hand put them in their place?
    They don't like those questions because they feel they are being cornered. On every level of their science they actually always come to the one and only explanation: the Creator! Immediately they change direction and work on an alternative explanation, and that is also futile! Wherever they run to they will always find the Creator as the Originator of all existence.
    „In whatever direction you set your eyes you will always find Allah there", says the Lord in the Holy Quran!

    The century of materialism comes to an end and the 21st century, the spiritual one, has begun. This would be completely different than the 20th century because the age of lies is over. And the truth will now come to light. The good news about this time had been told to believers by the Holy Prophet, may peace be upon him, 1500 years ago. He told that the 20th century will be the century of tyranny, lies and

  • deception and that the 21st century will be the century of order, justice and light.

    Now the liars are being cornered by their lies. The saints won't let them have one moment of quiet. If they know besides those six directions in space another one, they can try to take flight there. We have them but they are locked to them. Because outside of these six (directions) you can get beyond matter. And a permission to enter these areas has only been given to believers. Because the materialists don't believe in a Creator, they are bound by the matter, they worship.

    Their only hope of rescue would be in accepting the Creator, who created all worlds. If they are looking for this exit and don't find it, we will be at their service as long as they are sincere and honest. Because it is our task, to lead humans to their Lord.

    Conclusion: Science these days confirm with their discoveries and findings more than ever the Holy Verses and traditions of the prophet Mohammed, may peace be upon him, 1500 years ago. The scientists live the Holy Verse that says: „We shall show them soon through our signs in the universe and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that this is the Truth. ", but they haven't realized it yet. But the Lord tells that He will send more signs „...until it becomes clear to them that this is the Truth. " That is why we hope that this essay will wake those up who were meant to meet these Truths, so that they may realize them when they see them.

    Whether this will work or not, is up to Allah – He opens the hearts of His servants. We are only doing our duty by trying to please the wish of our Lord: To serve humans.
