Universe's Big Bang: Qur'anic Perspective

After Hubble announced the final results of his observations in 1929, physicists’ view of the universe began to change completely. In fact, before Hubble published his findings, Friedmann, who had used the equations put forth by Einstein in 1916, stated in 1922 with his study that the universe should be expanding. However, in those times—mostly …

Manifestation of God Through Science All Around Us

Kurt Gödel was an American logician, mathematician and philosopher of Austrian descent.

Can It Be the Theory of Everything?

Would you believe me if I told you that there is one unified master equation that can describe everything, every force in this world, every phenomenon in our cosmos, and how our universe was formed? From atoms to galaxies? Currently, this theory is just a proved complicated mathematical equation; however, scientists now are trying to …

Aliens, Alternate Dimensions, and Allah

Let’s say that one day we discover extraterrestrials knocking on our atmosphere. No doubt, this would be a shock to the world. But would the mere existence of these aliens shake the core foundation of all world religions? Would a heavenly revealed religion come to a screeching halt with the revelation that there is other …

How Small Are You to Universe?

In 1995, scientists pointed the Hubble Telescope at an area of the sky near the Big Dipper. The location was apparently empty, and the whole endeavor was risky. What, if anything, was going to show up? But what came back was nothing short of spectacular; an image of over 1,500 galaxies glimmering in a tiny …

How Will Everything End?

{And the heaven, We have constructed it mightily; and it is surely We Who have vast power, and keep expanding it.} [Surat Adh-Dhariyat 51:47].
