In the field of physics
several centuries ago,
there was a theory, which was called as atomism.
This was advanced by the Greeks, especially Democrats, who lived
2300 years before
and upon his theory of atomism, at him is the smallest part of matter.
And this was also known to the Arabs and the Arabic word for atom. In Arabic, it's called Hazara.
And Arabs also agreed the smallest part of matter, nothing can be smaller than that. And if we read the Quran, the Quran to speaks about the atom. Now, after science advanced, in the field of physics, we agree that atom is the smallest particle of matter having the characteristics of the element but an atom two can be divided.
So does it mean that the Quran is outdated. Quran says in Surah Saba Chapter number 34 was number three,
as well as in Salinas, chapter number 10, was a 61. That when they say that as unbelievers, that the final hour will never come, tell them, it will surely come by the Lord
in whose knowledge is the unseen
and in whose record is the smallest detail of an atom.
there is nothing smaller or greater than an atom, which is not there without being mentioned in his record. Clearly that's propitious. So the Quran says that Allah has the knowledge of the unseen. The minute is detail of that time is mentioned. And even things greater and smaller than that term is very clearly mentioned in his record. So the Quran mentioned 14 years ago, that there are things smaller than the atom
which science has discovered recently.
