DNA, Lunar Month, and the Qur’an
A few days ago I attended a short lecture from a South African astronomer, Dr Abdulrazaq Ebrahem, at the Islamic Education Foundation Centre (IEF) Jeddah. His lecture made me more impressed by the greatness of the Quran. Subhanallah, many new things were known by scientists in the last 30 years while in fact it is written clearly in the Qur’an?
Sisters in Islam, I have finished reading the Quran many times but I have not fully understand the contents of the Qur’an yet. Though many problems we face in this world already has a solution in our scriptures…
‘To learn, understand, and convey’ that’s what I am trying to do now so that I always remember a few verses of the Quran regarding science that is truly amazing and I want to share to you.
Have you known how human is created and where is the DNA of every human being?
5. So let man observe from what he was created
6. He was created from a fluid, ejected
7. Emerging from between the back bone and the ribs
(Surah At-Tariq 85: 5-7)
How many months in a year?
Indeed the number of months with Allah is twelve (lunar) months in the register of God (from) the day He created the heavens and the earth; of these four are sacred ….
(Surah Tauba 9:36)
It is He WHO made the sun a shining light and the moon a derived light determined for it phases That you may know the number of years and account (of time) …
(Surah Yunus 10:5)
How do we see hilaal (lunar month) or the begin/ end of the month?
And the moon – we have determined for it phases, until it returns (appearing) like
the old date stalk.
(Surah Yaseen 36-39)
How does God command / set the moon and the sun in each of its circulation orbit?
It is not allowable for the sun to reach the moon, nor does the night overtake the day, but each in an orbit, is swimming.
(Surah Yaseen 36: 40)
How does Allah set the month, especially for time of Hajj?
They ask you (O Muhammad) about the new moons. Say “they are measurements of time for the people and for Haj” ….
(Surah Al-Baqarah 2:189)
Almighty God is with Him all the words.
