00:00:00--> 00:00:01

Many of the atheists

00:00:02--> 00:00:07

they believe in science. All these arguments may not satisfy them completely.

00:00:08--> 00:00:09

No, there it is.

00:00:11--> 00:00:12

They say that science is the yardstick.

00:00:15--> 00:00:22

They believe science is ultimate. So let's try and prove to this group of atheists also about the Essence of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:00:24--> 00:00:30

So if I know that this atheist believes only in science, after congratulating him,

00:00:32--> 00:00:51

I'll ask him a simple question that if suppose there is equipment, there is a gadget, who no one in the world has ever seen. And if that gadget is bought in front of you, and the question is asked that, who will be the first person who will be able to tell you the mechanism of this gadget?

00:00:53--> 00:00:54

That at least

00:00:56--> 00:00:57

he may say,

00:00:58--> 00:01:10

after thing for a while, the first person who will be able to tell you the mechanism of a gadget who no one in the world has ever seen, nor in the world knows about it, he will tell you, that the creator of the gadget

00:01:12--> 00:01:26

or he may say, the maker of the gadget, he may say the inventor, he may say the producer, he may say the manufacturer, whatever we face, it will be somewhat similar, either creator, manufacturer, producer, maker inventor, somewhat similar.

00:01:27--> 00:01:29

Just keep that answer at the back of your mind.

00:01:31--> 00:01:38

The second person is the creative, he says, somebody else will come to know or a person who does research but that is secondary.

00:01:41--> 00:01:42

You ask these atheist

00:01:44--> 00:02:01

that, how did our universe come into existence? So he will tell you that our universe was initially one primary nebula. Then there was a secondary separation of Big Bang, which gave rise to galaxies, stars, moon, sun, and the earth on which we live.

00:02:02--> 00:02:10

This he calls as the Big Bang to ask him, when did you come to know about this creation of the universe about the Big Bang? He will tell you about 50 years back

00:02:12--> 00:02:13

40 years back.

00:02:14--> 00:02:33

So you tell him this thing what you're mentioning about the Big Bang is already mentioned in the Quran. 1400 years ago, incident Ambia chapter number 21 was the motive Allah says Allah mera La Cienega through, do not unbeliever thi Anessa Marathi Well, Arda contract contract Noma, that the heavens and the earth will join together and we closed them asunder.

00:02:34--> 00:02:47

What you're talking about the Big Bang is already mentioned in the Quran 1400 years ago, who could have mentioned this in the Quran? So he will tell, maybe it's a fluke. Somebody wrote it, no problem. Don't argue with him.

00:02:48--> 00:03:31

Ask him the next question. What is the shape of the earth? So he will tell you previously the human beings thought that the world was flat. It was in 1577 When Sir Francis Drake, he sailed around the earth that he proved that the Earth was spherical. You tell him the Quran mentions in Surah Nazia, chapter number 79. Was Timothy that what are the baddest Alika haha, we have made the earth actually the Arabic word the HA, one of its meaning is an expense and the earth is an expanse. The other meaning is derived from the Arabic word Ouya which means an egg. And we know today that the Earth is not completely round like a ball, it is starting from the pole and bulging from the center. It is

00:03:31--> 00:03:58

just radical and shape. It is somewhat similar to the egg and the Arabic would do Yeah, does not refer to a normal egg. It specifically refers to the egg of an ostrich. And if you analyze the shape of the egg of an ostrich, it is just very crunchy. Imagine the Quran mentioned that the earth is spherical 1400 years ago who could have mentioned that? So he will tell you are your Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him an intelligent man?

00:03:59--> 00:04:14

Don't argue continue. The light of the moon is its own enter reflected light. So this will tell you previously we thought that the light of the moon was its own light. But today we know that the light of the moon is not its own light, it's reflected light.

00:04:15--> 00:04:26

When you come to know he will tell you we came to know yesterday 50 years back 100 years back 200 years back Quran mentions 14 years ago and so the foregone chapter number 25 Verse number 61.

00:04:27--> 00:04:31

That method is he had placed the constellations in the sky

00:04:32--> 00:04:57

and they're in sun Shams having its own light, and Moon having borrowed light. The Arabic word for Sun is chumps. Its light is always described as Suraj of a heart, meaning a torch or a breathing lamp. And the moon in Arabic is called as comer. Its flight is always described as money or new money means borrowed light and new means a reflection of light

00:04:59--> 00:04:59

and nowhere

00:05:00--> 00:05:10

Is the moonlight described as the Hotjar Suraj. It's always described as nude or money, borrowed light reflection of light. Who could have mentioned this in the Quran 14 years ago?

00:05:12--> 00:05:15

Now there'll be a pause. Don't wait for the reply.

00:05:16--> 00:05:17

Continue.

00:05:18--> 00:05:21

When I was in school, I had learned

00:05:22--> 00:05:28

that the sun revolved, but it was stationary. It did not rotate about its axis.

00:05:31--> 00:06:10

The Quran says in Surah Ambia chapter number 21 Verse number 33, who will Lazic halacha Lera one Mahara? It is Allah was created the night and the day where something will come up the sun and the moon can learn FIFA lucky yes balloon, each one traveling in an orbit with its own motion. The Arabic word yes balloon describes the motion of a moving body. And if it's talking about Sestri body, it means that this sun and the moon besides revolving, it's also rotating about snow Nexus. And today science tells us that the sun takes approximately 25 days to complete one rotation. Imagine what I read in school, I finished my school ninth end to Sun was stationary.

00:06:11--> 00:06:14

1400 years before the Quran says the sun rotates.

00:06:15--> 00:06:20

And my science book said the Sun was tasty today. It has been incorporated that the sun rotates.

00:06:21--> 00:06:24

You ask him to do good I mentioned this.

00:06:25--> 00:06:26

There'll be a certain pause.

00:06:27--> 00:06:49

Some critics will say it is nothing great that the Quran speaks about astronomy because the Arabs were advanced in the field of astronomy. I do agree the Arabs who advance in the field of astronomy but like to remind them that it was centuries after the Quran was revealed that the Arabs became advanced in the field of astronomy. So it is from the Quran that the Arabs learned about astronomy and not the vice versa.

00:06:50--> 00:07:00

In the subject hydrology, when you asked the atheist that you asked him about the water cycle, he will tell you that the water evaporates from the ocean.

00:07:01--> 00:07:23

It formed into clouds. The clouds move the interior it falls on as rain and affordability punished. We asked him when did you come to know this? He will tell you it was in 15 180 When Sir Bernard panacea he spoke about the word cycle for the first time 1580 So you tell him what you came to know in 1580 just hardly

00:07:24--> 00:07:29

couple of 100 years before the Quran mentions 1400 years ago. The Quran says

00:07:31--> 00:08:10

the water evaporates from the ocean from the clouds. The clouds move and join the moon's interior and the Fallen as rain and the vertebrates finished. The water cycle is spoken in the Quran in great detail in several places. Misha Zoomer chapter 39, verse number 21, extra room chapter number 30 Verse number 24. In chapter 15, first I'm going to insert a moment on chapter number 23, verse number 18. So room chapter number 30. was no 14 And for a new chapter number 24, verse number 43. It's mentioned in Florida chapter number 38, verse number 12 to 14, it's mentioned in chapter seven, verse 57, is read write chapter number 13, verse number 17, is mentioned sorry for current chapter

00:08:10--> 00:08:12

number 25, verse 914 49.

00:08:14--> 00:08:42

It's mentioned in surah. Yaseen chapter number 36, verse number 34. It's mentioned for a fact in chapter number 35 was number nine. It's mentioned sorry, Joshua, jump number 45 was number five, and craft chapter 50, verse number nine and 10. It's mentioned for a vaca chapter 56 Verse number 67 to 70. It's mentioned for a topic Japanese metaphysics was the moleben I can go on and go on and God quoting only the verse in the Quran, which speak about the water cycle, only the Quran speaks about the water cycle in great detail.

00:08:45--> 00:08:47

Who could have mentioned this in the Quran 14 years ago?

00:08:49--> 00:08:50

No reply, don't worry continue.

00:08:51--> 00:08:53

The Quran speaks about geology.

00:08:56--> 00:09:23

geologists say that the radius of the Earth is 3750 miles. The deeper layers are hot and fluid. The upper layer is a thin crust, hardly one to 20 miles in thickness, and the high possibility that we'll shake it is due to the folding phenomena which give rise to mountain ranges which prevents the Earth from shaking. Allah mentioned this in the Quran. It's mentioned the Quran in surah number, chapter number 78

00:09:24--> 00:09:27

Verse number seven, Allah that Allah says,

00:09:28--> 00:09:37

will double O Tada. We have made the earth as an expanse and the mountains aspects, which times as agreed today, a similar message is mentioned

00:09:38--> 00:09:46

in sambia. Chapter 21 was number 31 That we have placed on the earth mountain standing firm lest it would shake with you

00:09:47--> 00:09:59

in the field of Oceanology. Previously we knew that there was two types of water, salt and sweet but the Quran says in Surah Furqan chapter 25 Verse number 53 That it is

00:10:00--> 00:10:31

He who has led free to body the flowing water, one sweet and palatable the other salty and bitter, though the meat the not mix, there is a barrier which is forbidden to be trespassed. We knew that there were two types of water. But what is the Quran mean there is a barrier which is forbidden to be trespassed. Today we know that whenever one type of water flows into the other type of water, it loses its constituents and gets homogenized into the water it flows this homogenizing area is called as a barrier of birth in the Quran.

00:10:32--> 00:10:34

Quran mentioned this 14 years ago

00:10:36--> 00:10:37

Quran mentionable Balaji

00:10:38--> 00:10:51

its mission for Ambia chapter number 21 Verse number 30, which are nominal ma equalization of Allah human noon, we have created every living thing from water will you not didn't believe who could have believed in the deserts of Arabia, that everything is made from water?

00:10:53--> 00:10:56

Today science tells us that every living thing is made from water.

00:10:59--> 00:11:02

There is a theory known as theory of probability

00:11:04--> 00:11:05

that if you make a wild guess

00:11:07--> 00:11:20

the chances you'll be right it depending upon what are the options. For example, if I toss a coin, Head or tails, whatever replies you give, the chances you will be right is one upon two half 50%

00:11:21--> 00:11:43

two options, chances will be right one upon two 50% If I call upon twice, the chances I'll be right both the times is one upon two to one upon two to one upon four does 25% if I toss a coin thrive, the chances I'll be right all three times is one upon two to one upon two into one upon two, it is one upon 812 and a half percent.

00:11:44--> 00:11:45

If I throw a dice

00:11:47--> 00:11:48

the dice have got six sides,

00:11:49--> 00:11:53

the chances if I make a wild guess it will be right is one upon six.

00:11:54--> 00:11:59

Now, if you apply this theory of probability, that someone made a wild guess.

00:12:01--> 00:12:05

For example, what is the shape of the earth? You can think of 10 things

00:12:07--> 00:12:11

flat square, rectangular, triangular, hexagon,

00:12:12--> 00:12:14

on and on, may be spherical.

00:12:15--> 00:12:20

The chances if you make a wild guess it is spherical, it will be right is one upon 10

00:12:22--> 00:12:40

If you ask a person, the light of the moon is its own light or effected life. If he makes a wild guess, chances we write a one upon two, the chances that both are right, the shape of the earth. And the light of the moon is not its own light is one upon 10 into one upon two is one upon 25%

00:12:44--> 00:12:50

All living creatures, made of what you can think of 1000 things sand,

00:12:51--> 00:13:03

iron, tin, word, on and on, maybe even water. chances. You make a wild guess and one is right is one upon 1000 chances all three are correct.

00:13:04--> 00:13:18

shape of the Earth is spherical, lie to the moon is reflected everything emit from water is one upon 10 into one upon two into one upon 1000 is one upon 20,000 is point 00 5% Only in three

00:13:19--> 00:13:22

so scientific facts. It's point 00 5%.

00:13:24--> 00:13:28

I've already mentioned several and if you read my book, there are hundreds

00:13:30--> 00:14:10

there are many things Quran speaks about botany infinite rod, chapter number 13 Verse number three, that all the fruits are created in pairs in sexes male and female, for unsetting the hijab number 2453 that the plants are made infected with male and female which became known recently in the field of Zoology. Quran say the animals and the birds live in community like the human beings and Surinam chapter number six was number 38, which became recently Quran speaks about the be that it can find its path which became recently in front of hell. Chapter number 16 Verse number 1669. The Quran says that the worker bee The Female Bee previously thought it was the male bee for unsteadiness Rendell

00:14:10--> 00:14:48

chapter number 16 Verse number 69, that the worker bee The Female Bee, Quran speaks about the lifestyle of the spider in Surah Anca Bucha between and Muslim 41 The Quran speaks about the lifetime of the ant infinite number, chapter number 27 Verse number 1718, which we have come to recently put on speaks about genetics, that the male fully to the sperm, which is responsible for the sex of the child and for a nice young chap number 53 was number 45 and 46 as well as chapter number 35 Verse number 3739, which became law recently, Quran speaks about embryology that all the human beings are made from Allah AKA a leech like suffering something which clings in surah Allah

00:14:48--> 00:14:59

Zurich Raja panentheism number two, which became recently Quran speaks about the various emeralds, stages Aloka muda is Mr. Lamb

00:15:00--> 00:15:04

So the moment on chapter number 23, verse number 12 to 14, which we have come to recently.

00:15:06--> 00:15:09

There are various scientific facts mentioned the Quran

00:15:11--> 00:15:13

as just mentioned to me,

00:15:15--> 00:15:30

there are people who say that after we human beings die, and after we are buried and our bones are disintegrated, how will Allah subhana wa Taala be able to reconstruct the bone on the Day of Judgment? So Allah says,

00:15:31--> 00:15:57

it's mentioned in the Quran, chapter number 75, verse number three and four, that when they say that, how will Allah be able to reconstruct the bones of the Day of Judgment tell them, Allah can not only reconstruct the bones, he can even reconstruct in perfect order the very tips of the fingers. What does Allah mean by saying you can not only reconstruct the bones he can even reconstruct in perfect order the very tips of finger it was in Italy and na t that's the France is gold.

00:15:58--> 00:16:17

He discovered the fingerprinting method and said that no two fingerprints even in a million human beings are identical. Today, the police, the CID, the FBI, the FBI, they use the fingerprinting method to identify the criminal. Quran speaks about the fingerprinting method 1400 years ago, and we discovered in 1880.

00:16:21--> 00:16:22

Who could have mentioned this?

00:16:25--> 00:16:39

I would like to mention one more thing before the scientific facts is that there was a scientist by the name of proto Radhakrishnan Prophet Tara Sean hails from Thailand. And he will do a great deal of research on the pain receptors.

00:16:41--> 00:17:11

Previously we human beings, we thought and the doctors thought that only the brain was responsible for the feeling of pain. Today, we come to know that there are certain receptors in the skin, which are also responsible for the feeling of pain. That the reason when a person of burn injury comes to a doctor, the doctor takes a pin and breaks it in the area of burn. If the patient feels pain, the doctor is happy. The pain receptors are intact. If the patient does not feel pain, the doctor has said the pain receptors have been destroyed.

00:17:14--> 00:17:29

It's mentioned in the Quran in surah Nisa, chapter number four, verse 50. Fix that as to those who reject our signs, we shall cause them in the hellfire. And as often as the skins are roasted, we shall give them fresh skin so that they feel the pain

00:17:30--> 00:17:34

indicating there is something in the skin which is responsible for the feeling of pain.

00:17:35--> 00:17:54

Imagine Quran speaks about the pain receptors 14 years ago, and Prophet Tara the question when it came to know the submission the Quran in the night medical conference in Riyadh, in the conference itself, he said the shahada and said Lila illAllah Muhammad Rasool Allah, there is no God but Allah and Prophet Muhammad peace whereby the Messenger of Allah

00:17:56--> 00:18:16

so when you as they taste, who could have mentioned this in the Quran, the only reply I can give you is the same which gave you earlier, it is the creator, it is the maker, it is the producer, it is the manufacturer, it is the inventor, this creator, this producer, this manufacturer, this maker, this inventor, we Muslims call him as Allah

00:18:20--> 00:18:28

that the reason today science is not eliminating God, it is eliminating models of God lie Allah illAllah.

00:18:30--> 00:18:37

Scientists today they're eliminating models of God. This cannot be God. This cannot be God now and eliminating God.

00:18:38--> 00:19:18

And the famous philosopher and scientist Francis Bacon, he said, that those who have little knowledge of science, they become atheist, but those who have in depth knowledge of science, they become a believer in God. I would like to end my talk with the quotation of the Quran from Surah facilite Chapter Four even worse than 53 receive some new Reem I Athena fella foggy but we unfussy him had ta Yatta by here alone and no luck of Allah media feed Bigger, bigger, and Noah la policia and shade that soon we shall show them all signs into the further regions of the horizons and into the souls until it is clear to them that this is the truth. wakrah Dhawan Alhamdulillah Bill Alameen
