Dr Zakir Naik explains how to prove to an Atheist that the Quran is God’s Word – Part 02
Snip it from the lecture “Is The Quran God’s Word?”
Many of the atheists
they believe in science, all these arguments may not satisfy them completely.
One of the things
they say that science is the yardstick.
They believe science is ultimate. So let's try and prove to this group of atheists also about exists Allah subhanaw taala.
So, if I know that this atheist believes only in science, after congratulating him
and asked 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 if the question is asked that who will be the first person who will be able to tell you the mechanism of this gadget
he may say,
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, no one in the world knows about it, he will tell you, that the creator of that gadget
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 he says it will be somewhat similar, either creator, manufacturer, producer, maker inventor, somewhat similar.
Just keep that answer at the back of your mind.
The second person is the Create a face for somebody else we will come to know or a person who does research but that is secondary.
You ask this atheist
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.
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
40 years back.
So you tell him this thing what you're mentioning about the Big Bang is already mentioned the front 1400 years ago in Saudi Arabia, chapter number 21 was the motto of Allah says Allah Mirella Xena through do not unbeliever thi anessa Mattila de Coronavirus, conflict nama that they haven't done the earth for join together, and we close them asunder.
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 even maybe it's a fluke. Somebody wrote it? No problem. Don't argue with him.
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 that the Quran mentions in Surah nazjatar chapter number 79 was Timothy that what are the Basilica? Haha, we have made the earth x ship. That'd be what the HA, one of its meaning is an expanse and there is an expanse. The other meaning is derived from the Arabic word 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 buzzing from the center. It is just a
helical shape. It is somewhat similar to the egg and the Arabic word does not refer to a normal leg, it specifically refers to the egg of an ostrich. And if you analyze the shape of the egg of an ostrich, it is just fellowshipped. Imagine the Quran mentioned that the earth is your 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?
Don't argue, continue. The light of the moon is its own and 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 the reflected light.
When you come to know he will tell you we came to know yesterday 50 years back 100 years back 200 years back. Quran mentioned 14 years ago and sort of forgotten chapter number 25 Muslim 61
that best It is he who plays the constellations in the sky,
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 Siraj meaning a torch or a blazing lamp, and the moon in Arabic is called as calmer. Its light is always described as money or new money means borrowed light and new means a reflection of light
Is the moonlight described as the Hydra Suraj it's always described as new Omni borrowed light or reflection of light. Who could have mentioned this in the Quran 14 years ago?
Now there'll be a pause. Don't wait for the reply.
When I was in school, I had learned
that the sun revolved, but it was stationary. It did not rotate about taxes.
The Quran says in Surah ambia chapter number 21 verse number 33, cover lezzy Calico layer one Hara It is Allah was created the night and the day where something will come up the sun and the moon called on FIFA like he has balloon, each one traveling in an orbit with its own motion. That big word yes balloon describes the motion of a moving body. And if it's talking about essentially what it means that this sun and the moon besides revolving, it's also rotating about soon axis. 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 1982 Sun was stationary.
1400 years before the Quran says the sun rotates.
And my science books said the sun was stationary today. It has been incorporated that the sun rotates.
You asked him to do good I mentioned this.
There'll be a sudden pause.
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 they are advanced 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.
In the subject hydrology, and you have a theist that you asked him about the water cycle, he will tell you that the water evaporates from the ocean.
It forms into clouds, the clouds move the interior it falls down as rain and the water is replenished. We asked him When did you come to know this? He will tell you it was in 15 180 when Sir Bernard palissy he spoke about the word cycle for the first time 1580 so you tell him what you came to learn 50 and 80 just hardly
couple of 100 years before the Quran mentions 1400 years ago. The Quran says
the water evaporates from the ocean from the clouds. The clouds move and join the moon to the interior and they fall down as rain and the water bill finished. The water cycle is spoken in the Quran in great detail in several places. Michelin star Azuma chapter 39 verse number 21 and slow room chapter number 30 verse number 24. So Roger, Chapter 15, must upgrade to its remote minion, Chapter 23 verse number 18. So room chapter number 30, verse no 48 and for a new chapter 24, verse number 43. It's mentioned in chapter number 17, verse number 12 to 14. It's mentioned in sort of chapter seven, verse 57, industriali, Chapter 13, verse number 17, is mentioned sorry for concept
number 25, verse 40, and 49.
It's mentioned in chapter number 36, verse number 34. It's mentioned in chapter number 35, verse number nine, it's mentioned sorry, Joshua, Chapter 45 was number five, and for a cough, Chapter 15, verse number nine and 10. It's mentioned for a vaca chapter 56, verse number 60 7070. It's mentioned for a third chapter metaphysics, verse number 11. I can go on and go on and go on quoting only the verses in the Quran, which speak about the water cycle, only the Quran speaks about the water cycle in great detail.
Who could have mentioned this in the Quran 14 years ago?
no reply. Don't worry continue.
The Quran speaks about geology.
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
verse number seven, as well as it Allah says,
Well, jabaal Tada. We have made the earth as an expanse and the mountains aspects, with signs as agreed today. A similar message is mentioned
in chapter 21, verse number 31, that we have placed on the earth mountains standing firm, lest it will shake with you
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
He who has led free two bodies of flowing water, one sweet and palatable the other, salty and bitter, though they meet 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 abaza in the front.
Quran mentioned this 14 years ago.
Quran mentions about biology.
It's mentioned for ambia chapter number 21 verse number 30, which Allah means Alma Aquila, a of Allah human, we have created every living thing from what will you not even believe, who could have believed in the desert of Arabia, that everything is made from water?
Today science tells us that every living thing you made from water
