In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, Most Merciful



 Honorable brother, with the sixth lesson of creed and miracles lectures we start, and we previously started with a topic centered on the prerequisites of the charge.

  We talked about the reason behind the existence of man on earth that is worshiping Allah The Almighty, and we said that worship is voluntary obedience, mixed with whole-heartedly love, based on indubitable  knowledge, leads to eternal happiness.

   We also mentioned previously that the prerequisites are: universe, mind, instinct, freedom of choice, lust, and time, and we summarized it in the meeting before last one, while last meeting we started with the first element which is universe, and we said that the universe is the first fundamental concept of  faith, because it reveals the Existence, Greatness, Oneness, and Perfection of Allah with His glorified Names, and best Attributes, yet universe is the appearance of Allah’s glorified Names, and reveals the Divine Perfection. However, we should slow down when talking about some of the splendid signs of the universe which indicate the Greatness of Allah.


Preface of universal signs that indicate the Greatness of Allah:


1- Allah testifies on the truthful message of His Messenger?



 When Allah the Almighty sends a Messenger with a method that includes dos and don'ts, orders and bans, Haram (illicit) and Halal (permitted), and mandatory and obligatory, this honorable Prophet and noble Messenger has a method with him, and method means restraining which is unsuitable for the bohemian person who doesn’t follow any method, hence people’s reaction towards any Messenger with a method is to accuse him of lying, Allah said the Almighty says:


"And those who disbelieve, say: "You (O Muhammad) are not a Messenger"


[Al Ra'd, 13: 43]

 For that it is important that Allah testifies before His creatures that this person He has sent is His Messenger, but how Does He testify?

 In fact, no vision can grasp Allah but minds can, yet minds can’t comprehend  Him in knowledge, Allah the Almighty says:

“And they will never compass anything of His Knowledge except that which He wills.”


[Al Baqarah, 2:255]


2- Breaking universal  laws:

 Nevertheless, Allah breaks universal laws on His messengers’ hands, but  this breaking is done only by Allah The Creator of heavens and earth.
   Thus, breaking universal laws is Allah’s testimony that this man is his Messenger, it happened to antecedent Prophets because every one of them was sent to his own tribe, so the miracle was witnessed by them and happened like lighting a match stick that is lighted and is put off, and the miracle turn into a story which people will or won’t believe in, but our Messenger (Muhammad may Allah bless him and grant him peace) was sent to all nations and people through centuries till the end of the days, and his book (Quran) is the last book, and he himself is the Seal (the last) of the Prophets.





3- Scientific miracles in Quran and Sunnah:


 Therefore, the Prophet’s miracle (Muhammad may Allah bless him and grant him peace) shouldn’t be a break of universal laws that happened once and it is over then turned into a story which  anyone can put down, but it should be – and we are in a lecture entitled creed and miracles- a continuous miracle.

   But how should it be continuous while  the Prophet will leave to the upper companion (Allah)?  Hence it won’t be continuous unless it was scientific and that is why we see miracles in Quran and Sunnah.


4-The Prophet didn’t interpret the universal ayaat:

 There are lot of universal ayaat in the Quran close to a thousand or more in which you will find a scientific breakthrough and a hint to an unknown fact, and it will be years and years and decades and centuries till a new scientific advance reveals this fact, and this  is something no one knows.

 Hence, the miracles in the noble Quran point out to facts unknown to people in the Prophet’s era, and what is noticeable is that the Prophet didn’t interpret these ayaat, why was that?

  I think – and Allah knows better – that he didn’t interpret it either by a divine recommendation, or may be by his own jurisprudence, and the wisdom of not interpreting it is that if he interpreted it simply going with the comprehension of people around him (who used to live a simple life) then we will disapprove it (after the scientific progress), and if he interpreted it deeply as it should be - because Allah showed him all His signs - then his companions would have  disapproved it (they would not understand it), so these ayaat  were left as a miracle of this Quran, and as a testimony from the Most Gracious that Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, is His  Messenger.

   So the gist of miracles in Quran is that you read a noble ayah, and suddenly a latest scientific breakthrough, previously unknown, confirms it.
   Hence, the Creator of these worlds is the One Who descended Quran, Allah the Almighty says:

“So I swear by Mawaqi (setting or the mansions, etc.) of the stars (they traverse). * And verily, that is indeed a great oath, if you but know.”


[Al-Waqiah, 56:75-76]

 And the answer to the oath is in what Allah the Almighty says:

“That (this) is indeed an honourable recital (the Noble Quran).”


[Al-Waqiah, 56,77]

And Allah’s words surpass creatures’ words same as Allah surpasses his creatures.

I will put before you some of these ayaat.


Some universal ayaat that indicate the Greatness of Allah:

1- Light’s speed:


“And verily, a day with your Lord is as a thousand years of what you reckon.”

[Al Haj, 22:47]

Honorable brother, Einstein, the famous physicist, put the relativity theory that totally changed all the concepts of physics, energy, power and motion in the world.

 Depending on this theory he discovered the absolute speed in the universe which is the speed of light, and anything that catches up with light’s speed turns into light and time comes to a halt, how is that?

 Our noble meeting now is transmitting electromagnet’s waves to the outer space, if man supposedly managed to build a spaceship that travels in light’s speed and travels along with light’s waves, the scene of our meeting would be preserved forever and ever, and everybody in this meeting would turn into dust 100 years from now, yet this scene would stay.

 Therefore when man travels in light’s speed, time comes to a halt, and when man is a head of light’s speed then time travels backward.
   So if we were able to build a spaceship that is supposedly able to travel faster than light’s speed, we would be able to see by our own eyes the battles of Badr, Ohod, Al Khandak, Al Qadisyah, and Hitteen, but all this is virtual assumption not real.
   Therefore if we traveled in light’s speed, time would come to a halt, and if we were faster than light’s speed, time would travel backward.

 A conference with the slogan “No Allah” was held in Moscow, but miraculously the fifth conference entitled “the scientific miracles of Quran and Sunna” was held simultaneously in Moscow where that other conference with the slogan “no Allah, and materialism is everything” was held too, and a prolonged research was published that I have a copy of and will bring to you its summery.


2- Moon’s orbit around the earth:

 Allah the Almighty says:

“And verily, a day with your Lord is as a thousand years of what you reckon.”



[Al Haj, 22:47]




 Allah The Almighty is talking to Arabs in this ayah “you reckon”, because Arabs used the moon calendar, and they were counting the years by the moon’s year.
   The moon turns around the earth once per month, now pay attention and this is to little students who go to school and study mathematics, the moon turns one time around the earth every month and if we took the center of the earth and the center of the moon and draw a straight line between the two, this line according to architects and mathematicians is the half diameter of a circle equals to the moon orbit around the earth, and it is easy to calculate that: half diameter of earth plus half diameter of moon plus the distance between the two equals half diameter of the moon’s orbit around the earth, if we multiply that by 2, we will get the diameter of the orbit, and if we multiply that by 3.14 we will get the circumference of the orbit, and if we multiply that by 12 (the months of a year) then multiply that by 1000 years (any junior high student can do that by a calculator) we will have the distance that the moon travels in 1000 years and this number will be in kilometers.

 And as you know speed equals the distance divided by the time, isn’t that true?
   If the distance between Damascus and Hamat is 200 kilometers and we traverse that distance in two hours, how much our speed will be?
   It will be 100 because we divided the distance by the time.
  So if we divide the distance that the moon traverses in its journey around the earth in 1000 years using the recent seconds, how many hours are there in a day? 24 hours.
   So we multiply 24 by 60 minutes and by 60 seconds, and because Allah the Almighty says:

“And verily, a day with your Lord is as a thousand years of what you reckon.”


[Al Haj, 22:47]
     That means the distance which the moon travels around the earth in 1000 years, equals the same distance that the light travels in one day, so if we divide this number on the sum of  seconds in  one thousand years, we would get the speed of light which is precisely 299752.
   So the distance that the moon traverses in 1000 years equals the distance that the light traverses in one day, and this discovery – the relativity theory about the speed of light that changed the face of science - is within this ayah's few words that were descended 1400 years ago but were confirmed in the year 1995, isn’t that a miracle?

3- The orbit of the earth around the sun:

 One more thing dear brother, the earth goes around the sun in an oval orbit which means it has two diameters, long and short.
   Does the earth move with us in the space?
   The earth speed is 30 kilometers per second, and we started our lesson 16 minutes ago, but if we assumed starting 10 minutes ago that means (if we multiply 30 kilometers by 60 seconds then multiply by 10


[Al-Naml, 27:88]

 So we walked 18000 kilometers in the space in 10 minutes, and in 20 minutes that will be 36000 kilometers and when we finish the lecture in 60 minutes the distance will be astronomical.

 The earth paces in a speed of 30 kilometers per second on an oval orbit with long and short diameters so the distance between the earth and the sun differs.
   Gravity law is related to distance and mass and when the mass increases then the gravity increases as well and when the distance decreases the gravity increases, but if the mass was constant and the distance decreased, we would have a high possibility of earth‘s gravitation towards the sun and if this took place the earth would evaporate with all its mountains, seas, poles, rockets and continents in one second and there would be no life on it, hence Allah the Almighty say:


“They made not a just estimate of Allah such as is due to Him. And on the Day of Resurrection the whole of the earth will be grasped by His Hand and the heavens will be rolled up in His Right Hand”


[Az-Zumar, 39:67]

 So what does the earth do to avoid that? It increases its speed when it is closer to the sun which creates centrifugal power equals the gravity power which keeps the earth on its orbit, now pay attention, Allah the Almighty says


“Verily! Allah grasps the heavens and the earth lest they move away from their places,”


[ Fatir, 35:41]

Reflect on this divine blessing:

 The earth’s changeable speed according to its distance from the sun, keeps it on its orbit which is a sign of Allah’s Greatness.

“Verily! Allah grasps the heavens and the earth lest they move away from their places,”


[ Fatir, 35:41]


considered one of the Quranic miracles.

   When the earth with its high speed reaches a far point from the sun on its orbit where gravity is weak and centrifuging is high, there will be a high possibility that the earth keeps moving in the outer space which will bring its temperature down to 270 minus zero degrees (The Absolute Zero which is a certain death).

   Therefore if the earth was gravitated to the sun it would evaporate in one second and if it slipped away from the sun’s gravity that would be devastating because of severe coldness

 And to avoid that, the earth decreases its speed and consequently decreases the centrifugal power in order to make it equal to the gravity power which keeps it on its orbit. Allah the Almighty says:

“Verily! Allah grasps the heavens and the earth lest they move away from their places,”


[Surat Fatir, 35:41]

 A scientist assumed the second scenario when earth slips away from the sun and keeps moving in the outer space, in that case and in order  to bring it back to the orbit, we need a trillion steel (the strongest material against pulling while diamond is the strongest material against pressing) cables with a diameter of 5 meters each, and 5 meters diameter cable means that it is able to pull 2 million tons of weight, and that is the reason behind using steel cables in cable cars, elevators, and suspension bridges, as they use the braided steel which is stronger.

  Cement is unbreakable under the pressure of 550 Kilograms on each centimeter square, but it is breakable if pulled by 5 kilograms, and for that reason  iron is used with the cement in buildings, else the building will collapse.

   Therefore we need, according to the second scenario, a trillion steel cables to bring back the earth to the sun’s gravity, and if we planted those cables on the surface of earth with a space of 5 meters between every two cables, there would be no agriculture, industry, factories, buildings, seas, ships, transportations, or a sun because the cables’ forest will conceal sun light and the life will be over, now pay attention:


“Allah is He Who raised the heavens without any pillars that you can see;”


[Ar-Ra'd, 13:2]

 It means: with invisible pillars that you can’t see.

 The gravity powers exist but can’t be seen yet people can walk through.
   In fact, is it possible that earth’s inhabitants altogether can build a building, like a  10 stories’ medical school building for example,with no connection to the ground, and beneath which is only air?
   Impossible, and so is the universe, it has gravity powers which can’t be seen yet people can walk through, but we need pillars on earth for any building, therefore:

“Allah is He Who raised the heavens without any pillars that you can see;”


[Ar-Ra'd, 13:2]

 This is one of the universal signs indicates the Greatness of Allah.

4- The lowest point on earth is Palestinian rift valley:


 Allah the Almighty says:

“The Romans  have been defeated, In the nearer land”


[Ar-Rum, 30:2-3]

 Dear brother, After discovering the Laser ray, it is well known  now that this ray emits and bounces back if hits any object, for that it is used to measure very long distances by millimeters, so we can measure the distance between earth and moon by millimeters, and nowadays if the architect is standing by the house’s side he is able to measure the distance between him and a wall by pressing a button of a device that shoots ray to the wall so it hits it and bounces back, and he says to you: the distance is 13 miters and 750 millimeters.

   So after discovering the laser ray scientists measured distances all over the earth, and Palestinian rift valley was one of them and it was the lowest point on land while the lowest point in seas is Mariana Golf in Pacific Ocean.

   According to history, it is a fact that the battle between Room and Furs took place in Palestinian rift valley, and Allah the Almighty  says:


“The Romans Empire have been defeated, In a In the nearer land and they, after their defeat, will be victorious.*, Within three to nine years. The decision of the matter, before and after (these events) is only with Allah, (before the defeat of Romans by the Persians, and after, i.e. the defeat of the Persians by the Romans). And on that Day, the believers (i.e. Muslims) will rejoice”






[ Ar-Rum, 30:2-4]

This is a scientific breakthrough.



 Now they discovered that Palestinian rift valley is the lowest point on land, and I have been to the Palestinian rift before the occupation, on our way we read: “this is sea level”, and we walked down like 600 meters bellow this level, Allah the Almighty says:



“The Romans Empire have been defeated, In a In the nearer land and they, after their defeat, will be victorious.*, Within three to nine years. The decision of the matter, before and after (these events) is only with Allah, (before the defeat of Romans by the Persians, and after, i.e. the defeat of the Persians by the Romans). And on that Day, the believers (i.e. Muslims) will rejoice”






[Ar-Rum, 30:2-4]


 So this ayah is considered as a scientific miracle.




5- Man’s sperm determines the sex of the fetus:



 Another thing: (ignorant) man may sometimes gets angry when his wife gives birth only to girls, and there are men who are fool enough to divorce their wives over this, though, science proved that the woman has nothing to do with the sex of the fetus which is determined only by the sperm of the man not the ovum of the woman according to scientific embryological researches. Actually, it is mentioned inthe Noble Quran;


“From Nutfah (drops of semen male and female discharges) when it is emitted”


[An-Najm, 53:46]


6- Atom’s world and universe’s movement:



 It was discovered by now that all the universal elements are composed of atoms, which are the smallest functional not structural units.

   The atom is a world unto itself, it has nucleus, orbits, electrons, and speeds and the famous image of an atom is a circle with many orbits with electrons orbit around it which means that everything in the universe is moving: wood, stone, glass, table or chair so anything your eyes lay on is moving and this is the atomic science, Allah the Almighty says:


“They all float, each in an orbit.”


[Ya-Sin, 36:40]

 From the atom to the galaxy, and from galaxy to atom, everything is orbiting, Allah The Almighty says::

“By the sky (having rain clouds) which gives rain, again and again”



[At-Tariq, 86:11]


7- The Ionosphere:


 We understand from this Ayah that water steam ascends up the sky and comes back as rain, then it was discovered that the electromagnet transmission in radio broadcasting bounces back when it is emitted in space, what does bring it back? They found out that there is a layer responsible for returning back these waves to the ground without which we would have never had radio or visual transmission, this layer is called: the Ionosphere, so we add a new meaning to this ayah:

“By the sky (having rain clouds) which gives rain, again and again”


[At-Tariq, 86:11]


 Then it was discovered that every planet orbits in a closed orbit around another planet bringing it back to the relatively starting point, therefore, Allah the Almighty says::

“By the sky (having rain clouds) which gives rain, again and again”


[At-Tariq, 86:11]

 Greatness here is that this words’ formation  bears  both meanings: either it means the returning of water from steam to rain, or the returning of the electromagnet transmission to broadcasting, or the returning of a planet to its relatively starting point, Allah the Almighty says:

“By the sky (having rain clouds) which gives rain, again and again”


[At-Tariq, 86:11]


8- Scattering of light’s phenomenon:


 The thickness of the earth’s atmosphere is 65 thousand kilometers in which there is a phenomenon called “scattering of light”.

   Basically the sun rays’ ascendancy on air’s specks causes reflection of the light towards other specks and this is why you see a place with sun rays and another with sun light, so every place has sun light yet not all places have sun rays and this is what is called “scattering of light”.

   When astronomers traveled in a space ship towards the outer space, one of them, after passing the 65 thousand kilometers of the atmosphere, and after  they reached the outer space where the blackness was astonishing, cried: “we went blind, we can’t see anything” and it happened that a Muslim astronomer was there  in the station when he heard the astronomer crying: “we went blind”, now open the Quran and read this noble ayah:


“And even if We opened to them a gate from the heaven and they were to continue ascending thereto,, *They would surely say: "Our eyes have been (as if) dazzled. Nay, we are a people bewitched."






[Al-Hijr, 15:14-15]


 This Ayah is considered a scientific miracle, and a breakthrough to one of the universal laws, which  was mentioned in this Quran but discovered 1400 years later.

   These are evidences that this Quran is Allah’s words, He, the Almighty, says:



“And proclaim to mankind the Hajj (pilgrimage). They will come to you on foot and on every lean camel, they will come from every deep and distant (wide) mountain highway (to perform Hajj).;”






[Al-Hajj, 22:27]


9- The Spherical nature of earth:




 Basically, “from every deep” could be from China, Japan, or American, and the Ayah said: 'deep' what does deep mean?

   Why didn’t He say far? Because when sphere is distant from a point of a curve the rift gets deep while if the earth was flat then it would be “distant” not “deep”, so because it is spherical like then the rift will be deep, and the depth of the curved lines of earth surface make curves and with every curve there is depth, and if the lines were straight then it would be “distant” not “deep” and this is a sign that the earth is spherical.

   There is another sign, Allah the Almighty says:


“And it is He Who spread out the earth”



[Surat Al Ra'd, 13:3]


 There is no geometric shape with lines that spread endlessly except for the sphere, and any other shape will have an edge like the cube, prism, or rectangular prism, but the sphere has no edge and this is why lines can spread out continuously, Allah the Almighty says:



“And it is He Who spread out the earth”






[Surat Al Ra'd, 13:3]


 Now there are other signs, Allah the Almighty  says



“That is because Allah merges the night into the day, and He merges the day into the night”






[Al-Haj, 22:61]


 Also there is no revolving geometric shape when is put in front of a light source but there will be  blending between light and dark.

   But on our earth during the day there is the sun, and during the night there isn’t any sun, but at dawn till sun rise there is kind of blending between day and night and this happens only when we have a sphere, and if the earth was cubic, the sun would rise and set suddenly, but on earth the sun set and its glow stays for a long time till Ishaa when the red twilight sets, Allah the Almighty says:


“That is because Allah merges the night into the day, and He merges the day into the night”

  [Al-Haj, 22:61]

 This is also a sign indicates the Greatness of Allah.


10- The barrier between the two seas:




 When astronomers took off in their space ship, they took photos of the seas and found out a line between each two of them, a line between the Mediterranean and the red say in Suez canal, a line between the red sea and the Arab sea in Bab El Mandeb, a line between the Mediterranean and the black sea in the Bosporus, and a line between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic Ocean by the Mountain of Tarik,

 And when they investigate this matter they found a difference between the two colors which means that every sea has its own components, saltiness, properties, and density.

  Once I have been to Al Aqabah and I checked in a hotel nearby the shore, when I put my foot in the sea, its water seemed very light, and anyone can feel the lightness of the red sea, while the Mediterranean’s water is heavier.

   So every sea has its own components, saltiness, properties and density and this is why they can’t be mixed together, open the Quran and read the following noble ayah:

“He has let loosed the two seas (the salt water and the sweet) meeting together.* Between them is a barrier which none of them can transgress.* Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny? ?”


[Ar-Rahman, 55:19-21]


 This was puzzling to scientists till the science showed the reality of this Ayah, “He has let loosed the two seas (the salt water and the sweet)” and as you know the sea is choppy in general yet and even when German scientists used huge amounts of shredded papers and put it on the lines between seas, it didn’t move from one to another, and when you look to pictures of the sea you can distinguish this line like a wall, so sea’s water has its own properties.



“He has let loosed the two seas (the salt water and the sweet) meeting together.* Between them is a barrier which none of them can transgress.* Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny? ?”






[Ar-Rahman, 55:19-21]


 This Ayah is also considered as scientific miracle.



11- Water properties:




 Water has a unique property without which this lecture would never take place, or this mosque, or this city, and no man on earth would exist.

 So, water has a special property without which no human, animal, or plant would have existed, why?

   Because, without any exception, everything expands when is heated.

   Hypothetically, if we heated basalt rocks they would turn into liquid, and in volcanoes these basalt rocks run like rivers, and if it was overheated it would evaporate and we would get basalt steam.

   This is a general law on earth that every element expands by hearting and shrinks by cooling and this law is general except for water without which there would be no life on earth, what is that exception?


 The water is just like any other substance; it expands when is heated and shrinks when is cooled till it reaches 4 degrees and at that very point it starts to expand, Glorified be Allah.

  Density is related to volume and weight, and when water reaches 4 degrees and keeps dropping, it starts expanding going against the law of other substances.

   For that, when seas face severe freezing waves, water turns into ice and its density decreases and floats as a result, while the deep water stays warm and in liquid form keeping all creatures sound, and when summer comes the ice melts.

   But if water was like any other substance and shrinks when is cooled, its density will increase and it will sink in deep water layer after layer and centuries after centuries till all seas are frozen, and no evaporation will occur as a result, and there will be no rain, no plants, no animals, and finally no human and the life is over.



 Whenever you drink a glass of water remember this property without which no life will be on earth.

   Hence there is a great sign here indicates the Greatness of Allah, that when this water reaches the temperature of 4 degrees it starts to expand, and if you want a proof, all you have to do is to fill up a bottle with water and close it tight then put it in the fridge, it will break into pieces after 4 hours.

   By the way, if water starts to expand, no power on earth can stop it, and now they are using this procedure to pluck out marble mountains, as they dig holes in its rocks and fill it with water and freeze it, as a result a ball or cube of marble will come out.



 This is why we use antifreeze substance in engines that is made of a very high metallic mixture so it won’t crack up.

  Even eye’s water, has an antifreeze substance thanks to Allah.

   If man reaches the pole where the temperature is 70 bellow zero degrees, his eye could have been frozen and he would lose his sight, but thank to Allah He bestowed us with antifreeze substance in the eye to protect it.



12- Evaporation property and its relation with rain:




 The air carries water steam with amounts that suit its temperature, so if the air is hot it will carry more amounts of steam but if it gets cold it will throw away part of it.

 Without this law there would be no rains.

   The sun rays descend on seas causing evaporation of water which turns into steam held by air, and the air takes it to a cold area where it throws away some of its steam as drops of water and we get rain in this process.


 This is very accurate dear brother, when air gets hot it expands and its pressure decreases in the process, but if you cool it, it will accumulate increasing its pressure.

  The air moves from high pressure to low pressure, and you can run an experiment by warming the stilling room then crack the door by 2 centimeters putting a candle by this crack, you will notice that the candle’s flame leans towards inside because the pressure outside is very high because of coldness and the high pressure moves towards lower pressure inside the room where the air is hotter.



 That is why planes in hot areas needs more distance to take off because the air is loose and doesn’t carry it quickly. So, in cold areas the plane takes off like this (with bigger angle) while in warm areas it takes off like this (with smaller angle).

   Hence Allah the Almighty makes this water a sign that indicates His Greatness, Allah the Almighty says:



“And We have made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe?”






[Al- Anbya, 21:30]


Reflecting is the way to know Allah:



 Honorable brother, of course this is little of much more, as Allah’s signs are countless, but to get to know Allah you should reflect on the creation of heavens and earth, Allah the Almighty says:


“Then in which speech after Allah and His Ayat will they believe?”






[Al Jathiyah, 45:6]


 And signs, as you know, are universal which we’ve already talked about, and there are creation signs which are Allah’s acts, and we have the Quranic ayaat (verses) which are Allah’s words, and the path to get to know Allah is by reflecting on His universal, creation and Quranic signs and by doing so we become more close to knowing Allah the Almighty which is the gist of religion:



((O, son of Adam, seek me you find me, and when you find me you find everything and when you lose me you lose everything and I should be adored by you more than everything))






[Narrated in tradition]


Praise be to Allah, the Lord of Creations
