Origin of the Universe and Life


An interesting characteristic of the Quran is how it deals

with surprising phenomena which relate not only to the past

but to modern times as well. In essence, the Quran is not and

old problem. It is still a problem even today - a problem to the non-Muslims that is. For everyday, every week, every year

brings more and more evidence that the Quran is a force to be contended with - that its authenticity is no longer to be challenged! For example, one verse in the Quran (Surah

al-Anbiya 21:30) reads:


"Do not the unbelievers see that the heavens and

the earth were joined together, then We clove them

asunder, and made from water every living thing?

Will they not then believe?"


Ironically, this very information is exactly what they

awarded the Noble Prize for - to a couple of unbelievers.


The Quran reveals the origin of the universe - how it

began from one piece - and mankind continues to verify

this revelation, even up to now. Additionally, the fact that

all life originated from water would not have been an

easy thing to convince people of fourteen centuries ago.

Indeed, if years ago you had stood in the desert and

told someone, "All of this, you see (pointing to yourself), is

made up of mostly water," no one would have believed you. Proof of that was not available until the invention of

the microscope. They had to wait to find out that

cytoplasm, the basic substance of the cell, is made-up of 80% water. Nonetheless, the evidence did come, and once

again the Quran stood the test of time.
