How Did it Happen?

Since 2012-11-18

Would you believe a man if he tells you that there is a store which is running smoothly but has no salesman, storekeeper or someone to look after it?!, Or would you believe him if he told you that chair infront of you assumed its present all by self?!

 

Would you believe a man if he tells you that there is a store which is running smoothly but has no salesman, storekeeper or someone to look after it?
 
Or would you believe him if he told you that the chair in front of you assumed its present all by itself?
 
 
The rain tells
 
Now there is no way to persuade you that an ordinary store could run without a storekeeper or a salesman, or that a chair could assume its form without a carpenter's skill, how could you possibly accept the thesis that the universe is without a creator or master? In the wonderful scheme of the universe, with countless living creatures, the sun, the moon stars and planets function with the utmost precision. Vapor rises from the oceans and turns into clouds: the winds blow these clouds to the distant corners of the earth, then the vapor condenses into water and falls on the earth as rain which brings dead soil to life and helps the growth of various kinds of grains and other crops, and different varieties of fruits and flowers. The fruits have different flavors, though they grow in the same place, using the same water. The Holy Qur'an speaks about the one and only force behind all of these phenomena in the following verses.
 
{O mankind! Worship your Lord (Allah), Who created you and those who were before you so that you may become Al-Muttaqun (the pious - see V. 2:2). (21) Who has made the earth a resting place for you, and the sky as a canopy, and sent down water (rain) from the sky and brought forth therewith fruits as a provision for you. Then do not set up rivals unto Allah (in worship) while you know (that He Alone has the right to be worshipped).} [Al-Baqara 2:21-22]
 
 
{يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ اعْبُدُوا رَبَّكُمُ الَّذِي خَلَقَكُمْ وَالَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ ﴿٢١﴾ الَّذِي جَعَلَ لَكُمُ الْأَرْضَ فِرَاشًا وَالسَّمَاءَ بِنَاءً وَأَنزَلَ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ مَاءً فَأَخْرَجَ بِهِ مِنَ الثَّمَرَاتِ رِزْقًا لَّكُمْ ۖ فَلَا تَجْعَلُوا لِلَّـهِ أَندَادًا وَأَنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ}البقرة: 21-22

{And it is He Who spread out the earth, and placed therein firm mountains and rivers and of every kind of fruits He made Zawjain Ithnain (two in pairs - may mean two kinds or it may mean: of two sorts, e.g. black and white, sweet and sour, small and big, etc.) He brings the night as a cover over the day. Verily, in these things, there are Ayat (proofs, evidences, lessons, signs, etc.) for people who reflect. (3) And in the earth are neighbouring tracts, and gardens of vines, and green crops (fields etc.), and date-palms, growing out two or three from a single stem root, or otherwise (one stem root for every palm), watered with the same water, yet some of them We make more excellent than others to eat. Verily, in these things, there are Ayat (proofs, evidences, lessons, signs) for the people who understand.} [Ar-Ra’d 13:3-4]
 
{وَهُوَ الَّذِي مَدَّ الْأَرْضَ وَجَعَلَ فِيهَا رَوَاسِيَ وَأَنْهَارًا ۖ وَمِن كُلِّ الثَّمَرَاتِ جَعَلَ فِيهَا زَوْجَيْنِ اثْنَيْنِ ۖ يُغْشِي اللَّيْلَ النَّهَارَ ۚ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ ﴿٣﴾ وَفِي الْأَرْضِ قِطَعٌ مُّتَجَاوِرَاتٌ وَجَنَّاتٌ مِّنْ أَعْنَابٍ وَزَرْعٌ وَنَخِيلٌ صِنْوَانٌ وَغَيْرُ صِنْوَانٍ يُسْقَىٰ بِمَاءٍ وَاحِدٍ وَنُفَضِّلُ بَعْضَهَا عَلَىٰ بَعْضٍ فِي الْأُكُلِ ۚ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَعْقِلُونَ} الرعد: 3-4

Now, could a sensible person believe that this vast and integrated system sprang into existence and runs without a master or governor?
 
We do not hesitate to dismiss a person as a lunatic who considers that a thing as insignificant and small as a chair or piece of cloth came into existence by itself; should we then agree with someone who states that the earth sprang into existence automatically, the animals came to life by automatically, the animals came to life by themselves and even the most wonderful and complicated creation of the living being -the human being- came into existence without a creator?
 
Look at the human body and the missions of system and sub systems working with the most wonderful cooperation and packed most efficiently in that small body.
 
 
The embryo witnesses
 
Have you ever pondered how the human fetus forms and develops in the tiny workshop of its mother's womb? At a moment of which neither the father nor the mother is aware, two small life germs unite, then in the following months, they develop into several organs and parts of the human body in the appropriate places. Every part large or small, is precisely where it should be. Only a person out of his wits could say that this wonderful system of life came into being and has continued for countless generations without a Wise, Powerful Being possessing vast knowledge and unrivaled powers of creation.
 
{And indeed We created man (Adam) out of an extract of clay (water and earth). (12) Thereafter We made him (the offspring of Adam) as a Nutfah (mixed drops of the male and female sexual discharge) (and lodged it) in a safe lodging (womb of the woman). (13) Then We made the Nutfah into a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood), then We made the clot into a little lump of flesh, then We made out of that little lump of flesh bones, then We clothed the bones with flesh, and then We brought it forth as another creation. So blessed be Allah, the Best of creators.} [Al-Mu’minun 23:12-14]
 
{وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنسَانَ مِن سُلَالَةٍ مِّن طِينٍ ﴿١٢﴾ ثُمَّ جَعَلْنَاهُ نُطْفَةً فِي قَرَارٍ مَّكِينٍ ﴿١٣﴾ ثُمَّ خَلَقْنَا النُّطْفَةَ عَلَقَةً فَخَلَقْنَا الْعَلَقَةَ مُضْغَةً فَخَلَقْنَا الْمُضْغَةَ عِظَامًا فَكَسَوْنَا الْعِظَامَ لَحْمًا ثُمَّ أَنشَأْنَاهُ خَلْقًا آخَرَ ۚ فَتَبَارَكَ اللَّـهُ أَحْسَنُ الْخَالِقِينَ} المؤمنون: 12-14

Impossibility
 
Suppose an earthquake occurs and all the different solutions in a lab fall and mix together. It would be a very strange coincidence if such a mixture produces a new medicine that cures a certain disease.
 
Now let us look at the probability of forming a protein molecule assuming that all the elements are already in existence, the Swiss mathematician Charles Eugene Jai calculated this probability. He took the protein molecule as his sample, but he simplified the case by considering his molecule to contain 2.000 atoms instead of 34.500 and to consist of two types of atom instead of the four major ones. The value of probability is determined by the size of the material necessary for such a reaction to take place and he found that the probability of forming that simplified protein molecule was approximately 1/2 x 10321. The size of the material necessary for the almost zero probability was a sphere whose diameter was approximately 1063 times the imagined size of the universe. He found also that the time necessary for such a molecule to form was 10243 billion years which is by far greater than the hypothesized age of the earth which is only two billion years. So the size and time factor would make it impossible ever to form one protein molecule.
 
 
The thinking process proves
 
As a computer needs a program to run, a human being needs previous information to produce a thought. Who put that initial information in a human being's mind?
 
 
One principal
 
Have you ever heard of a school with two principals, or a department with two chairpersons, or an army with two commanders in chiefs, or a country with two presidents? In any event, could any institution under a dual control be run effectively? Look at the millions of planet and stars: their conduct and movement show an extremely strict adherence to a certain uniform set of rules and regulations. Their distances and directions in relation to one another are set and even the slightest alteration of this scheme will upset the whole system and cause chaos.
 
The rules they are abiding by are so uniform that we study to find mathematical formulas describing them. If the universe has been governed by several or even two goods its affairs could not possibly have been run so regularly efficiently and we would have seen the chaos stemming from the contradicting orders and rules. If even a small school cannot accept two principals at one time, how could the vast realms of the heaven be run by more than one sovereign?
 
Now when God is the sovereign of the universe, is it not logical that you submit willingly to His commands and model your life according to the way of life he set for mankind? Only this will ensure the tranquility and peace in the human society that can be seen in the course of the whole universe. The question which arises then is; how to know the way of life prescribed by good? Of course, this cannot be traced by the help of the senses, studies, perception or any kind of acquired knowledge. Man has to turn towards heavenly guidance exhorted by a series of prophets, the last being Muhammad (peace be upon him). Man's salvation lies in knowing and surrendering to this heavenly guidance. This very act is called Islam, which means total and unconditional submission to the will of God.
 
Finally the Qur'an plainly tells us about the destiny of man and the glory of God as follows:
 
{ Does not man see that We have created him from Nutfah (mixed male and female discharge semen drops). Yet behold! He (stands forth) as an open opponent. (77) And he puts forth for Us a parable, and forgets his own creation. He says: "Who will give life to these bones when they have rotted away and became dust?" (78) Say: (O Muhammad SAW) "He will give life to them Who created them for the first time! And He is the All-Knower of every creation!" (79) He, Who produces for you fire out of the green tree, when behold! You kindle therewith. (80) Is not He, Who created the heavens and the earth Able to create the like of them? Yes, indeed! He is the All-Knowing Supreme Creator. (81) Verily, His Command, when He intends a thing, is only that He says to it, "Be!" and it is! (82) So Glorified is He and Exalted above all that they associate with Him, and in Whose Hands is the dominion of all things, and to Him you shall be returned.} [Ya-Sin 36:77-83]
 
{أَوَلَمْ يَرَ الْإِنسَانُ أَنَّا خَلَقْنَاهُ مِن نُّطْفَةٍ فَإِذَا هُوَ خَصِيمٌ مُّبِينٌ ﴿٧٧﴾ وَضَرَبَ لَنَا مَثَلًا وَنَسِيَ خَلْقَهُ ۖ قَالَ مَن يُحْيِي الْعِظَامَ وَهِيَ رَمِيمٌ ﴿٧٨﴾ قُلْ يُحْيِيهَا الَّذِي أَنشَأَهَا أَوَّلَ مَرَّةٍ ۖ وَهُوَ بِكُلِّ خَلْقٍ عَلِيمٌ ﴿٧٩﴾ الَّذِي جَعَلَ لَكُم مِّنَ الشَّجَرِ الْأَخْضَرِ نَارًا فَإِذَا أَنتُم مِّنْهُ تُوقِدُونَ ﴿٨٠﴾ أَوَلَيْسَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ بِقَادِرٍ عَلَىٰ أَن يَخْلُقَ مِثْلَهُم ۚ بَلَىٰ وَهُوَ الْخَلَّاقُ الْعَلِيمُ ﴿٨١﴾ إِنَّمَا أَمْرُهُ إِذَا أَرَادَ شَيْئًا أَن يَقُولَ لَهُ كُن فَيَكُونُ ﴿٨٢﴾ فَسُبْحَانَ الَّذِي بِيَدِهِ مَلَكُوتُ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَإِلَيْهِ تُرْجَعُونَ} يس: 77-83

* Allah is the name of God in the Arabic language. Neither plural nor gender can be formed from it. He is the creator and sustainer of the universes. He is the God of all people including the prophets such as Adam, Noah, Abraham, Ishmael, Jacob, Moses, David, Jesus and Muhammad (peace be upon all of them).
