  2. Why a scientist believes in God?

    Seventh: The fact that man can conceive the idea of God is in itself a unique proof. The conception of god rises from a divine faculty of man, unshared with the rest of our world - the faculty we call imagination. By its power, man and man alone can fmd the evidence of things unseen. The vista that power opens up is unbounded; indeed, as man is perfected, imagination becomes a spiritual reality. Alhamdulillah..

    Sixth: By the economy of nature, we are forced to realize that only infinite wisdom could have foreseen and prepared with such astute husbandry. Many years ago a species of cactus was planted in Australia as a protective fence. Having no insect enemies in Australia the cactus soon began a prodigious growth; the alarming abundance persisted until the plants covered an area as long and wide as England, crowding inhabitants out of the towns and villages, and destroying their farms. Seeking a defense, the entomologists scoured the world; finally they turned up an insect which exclusively feeds on cactus, and would eat nothing else. It would breed freely too; and it had no enemies in Australia. So animal soon conquered vegetable and today the cactus pest has retreated, and with it all but a small protective residue of the insects, enough to hold the cactus in check for ever. Such checks and balances have been universally provided. Why have not fast-breeding insects dominated the earth? Because they have no lungs such as man possesses; they breathe through tubes. But when insects grow large, their tubes do not grow in ratio to the increasing size of the body. Hence there has never been an insect of great size; this limitation on growth has held them all in check. If this physical check had not been provided, man could not exist. Imagine meeting a hornet as big as a lion!

    Fourth: Man has something more than animal instinct - the power of reason. No other animal has ever left a record of its ability to count ten or even to understand the meaning of ten. Where instinct is like a single note of a flute, beautiful but limited, the human brain contains all the notes of all the instruments in the orchestra. No need to belabour this fourth point; thanks to the human reason we can contemplate the possibility that we are what we are only because we have received a spark of Universal Intelligence. Fifth: Provision for all living is revealed in phenomena which we know today but which Darwin did not know - such as the wonders of genes. So unspeakably tiny are these genes that, if all of them responsible for all living people in the world could be put in one place, there would be less than a thimbleful. Yet these ultra- microscopic genes and their companions, the chromosomes, inhabit every living cell and are the absolute keys to all human, animal and vegetable characteristics. A thimble is a small place in which to put all the individual characteristics of two thousand million human beings. However; the facts are beyond question. Well then, how do genes lock up all the normal heredity of a multitude of ancestors and preserve the psychology of each in such an infinitely small space? Here evolution really begins - at the cell, the entity which holds and carries genes. How a few million atoms, locked up as an ultra-microscopic gene, can absolutely rule all on earth is an example of profound cunning and provision that could emanate only from a Creative Intelligence - no other hypothesis will serve.

    Third: Animal wisdom speaks irresistibly of a good Creator who infused instinct into otherwise helpless little creatures. The young salmon spends years at sea, then comes back to his own river; and travels up the very side of the river into which flows The tributary where he was born. What brings him back so precisely? If you transfer him to another tributary he will know at once that he is off his course and he will fight his way down and back to the main stream and then turn up against the current to finish his destiny more accurately. Even more difficult to solve is the mystery of eels. These amazing creatures migrate at maturity from all ponds and rivers everywhere - those from Europe across thousands of miles of oceans - all bound for the same abysmal deeps near Bermuda. There they breed and die. The little ones, with no apparent means of knowing anything except that they are in a wilderness of water nevertheless find their way back not only to the very shore from which their parent came but thence to the rivers, lakes or little ponds - so that each body of water is always populated with eels. No American eel has ever been caught in Europe, no European eel in American waters. Nature has even delayed the maturity of the European eel by a year or more to make up for its longer journey. Where does the directing iruptilse originate? A wasp will overpower a grasshopper, dig a hole in the earth, sting the grasshopper in exactly the right place so that he does not die but becomes unconscious and lives on as a form of preserved meat. Then the wasp will lay her eggs handily so that her children when they hatch can nibble without killing the insect on which they feed, to them dead meat would be fatal. The mother then flies way and dies; she never sees her young. Surely the wasp must have done all this right the first time and every time, or else there would be no wasp. Such mysterious techniques cannot be explained by adaptation; they were bestowed.

    Second: The resourcefulness of life to accomplish its purpose is a manifestation of all-pervading Intelligence. What life itself is no man has fathomed. It has neither weight nor dimensions, but it does have force; a growing root will crack a rock. Life has conquered water, land and air, mastering the element, compelling them to dissolve and reform their combinations. Life, the sculptor, shapes all living things; an artist, it designs every leaf of every tree, and colours every flower. Life is a musician and has each bird to sing its love songs, the insects to call each other in the music of their multitudinous sounds. Life is a sublime chemist, giving taste to fruits and spices, and perfume to the rose changing water and carbonic acid into sugar and wood and, in so doing, releasing oxygen that animals may have the breath of life. Behold an almost invisible drop of protoplasm, transparent and jelly-like, capable of motion, drawing energy from the sun. This single cell, this transparent mist-like droplet, holds within itself the germ of life, and has the power to distribute this life to every living thing, great and small. The powers of this droplet are greater than our vegetation and animals and people, for all life came from it. Nature did not create life; fire-blistered rocks and a saltless sea could not meet the necessary requirements. Who, then, has put it here?

    Again, the sun, source of our life, has a surface temperature of 12,000 degrees Fahrenheit, and our earth is, just far enough away so that this 'eternal fire" warms us just enough and not too much! If the sun gave off only one-half its present radiation, we would freeze, and if it gave half as much more, we would roast. The slant of the earth, tilted at an angle of 23 degrees, gives us our season; if it had not been so tilted, vapors from the ocean would move north and south, piling up for us continents of ice. If our moon was, say, only 50 thousand miles away instead of its actual distance, our tides would be so enormous that twice a day all continents would be submerged; even the mountains would soon be eroded away. If the crust of the earth had been only ten feet thicker, there would be no oxygen without which animal life must die. Had the ocean been a few feet deeper, carbon dioxide and oxygen would have been absorbed and no vegetable life could exist. Or if our atmosphere had been thinner, some of the meteors, now burned in space by the million every day would be striking all parts of the earth, starting fires everywhere. Because of these, and host of other examples, there is not one chance in millions that life on our planet is an accident.

    First: By unwavering mathematical law we can prove that our universe was designed and executed by a great engineering Intelligence. Suppose you put ten coins, marked from one to ten, into your pocket and give them a good shuffle. Now try to take them out in sequence from one to ten, pulling back the coin each time and shaking them all again. Mathematically we know that your chance of first drawing number one is one in ten; of drawing one and two in succession, one in 100; of drawing one, two and three in succession, one in a thousand, and so on; your chance of drawing them all, from one to number ten in succession, would reach the unbelievable figure of one chance in ten thousand million. By the same reasoning, so many exacting conditions are necessary for life on earth that they could not possibly exist in proper relationship by chance. The earth rotates on its axis at one thousand miles an hour; if it turned at one hundred miles an hour, our days and nights would be ten times as long as now, and the hot sun would then burn up our vegetation during each long day, while in the long night any surviving sprout would freeze.

    Assalamu Alaykum.. "http://ummah/science/viewscfeature.php?scfid=4&scTopicID=2"]Source[/url] Why A Scientist Believes In God This article of Mr A. Cressy Morrison, former President of the New York Academy of Sciences, first appeared in the "Reader's Digest" (January 1948); then on recommendation of Professor C. A. Coulson, F. R.S., Professor of Mathematics at Oxford University, was republished in the "Reader's Digest" November 1960 - It shows how science compels the scientists to admit to the essential need of a Supreme Creator. We are still in the dawn of the scientific age and every increase of light reveals more brightly the handiwork of an intelligent Creator. In the 90 years since Darwin we have made stupendous discoveries; with a spirit of scientific humanity and of faith grounded in knowledge we are approaching even nearer to an awareness of God. For myself I count seven reasons for my faith.

  13. Some Scientific Miracles In The Qur'an

    QURANIC VERSES "On the (Judgement) Day you shall see the believing men and women: their light running forward before them and by their right hands. Glad tidings for you this day! Gardens under which rivers flow(Paradise), to dwell therein forever! Truly, this is the great success." On the Day when hypocrites-men and women will say to the believers: "Wait for us! Let us get something from your light!" It will be said: "Go back to your rear! Then seek a light!" So a wall will be put up between them, with a gate therein. Inside it will be mercy, and outside it will be torment." (The hypocrites) will call the believers: "Were we not with you?" The believers will reply: "Yes! But you led yourselves into temptations, you looked forward for our destruction; you doubted (in faith) and you were deceived by false desires, till the Command of Allah came to pass. And the chief deceiver (Satan) deceived you in respect of Allah. " (57:12-14) Is one who is obedient to Allah, prostrating himself or standing (in prayer) during the hours of the night, fearing the Hereafter and hoping for the Mercy of his Lord (like the one who disbelieves)? Say: "Are those who know equal to those who know not?" It is only men of understanding who will remember (i.e., get a lesson from Allah's Signs and Verses). (39:9) This is a Book (the Quran) which we have sent down to you, full of blessings that they may ponder over its Verses, and that men of understanding may remember. (38:29) It (the Quran) is for those who believe, a guide and a healing. And as for those who disbelieve, there is heaviness (deafness) in their ears, and it (the Quran) is blindness for them. They are those who are called from a place far away (so they neither listen nor understand). (41:44)
  14. International Muslim Youth

    Renda did not want to stop here. He wanted more and more participation in Islamic activities while his beloved wife cooperated with him fully. That was the time when the war in Bosnia was in full swing. Muslims were killed and tortured every day. Muslim youth from many countries went there to help the Bosnian Muslims. Renda could not resist and made up his mind to go there as well. He left his wife and young children in Anarbor City and appointed a wali or guardian for them from among the Turkish Muslim students. He called me to say salam (peace) and to make me aware of his family arrangements. Renda was a very cool-minded, confident person and was very firm in carrying out his decision. He especially wanted to help the Bosnian orphan children. After a while we heard that Allah made him a shaheed (martyr) in Bosnia. The Anarbor Muslim Community was very proud of Renda and his family. They immediately established a trust and collected about sixty thousand dollars. This money is to be used for the education of Renda's children when they reach college level. Renda's wife is very noble. She is growing more and more Islarnically by understanding and memorizing more and more of the Quran and Ahadith [the sayings, deeds and approvals accurately narrated from Prophet Mohammad (pbuh)]. Renda's children are very intelligent like him. His wife is bringing them up with a remarkable Islamic background. We are told that Renda's mother and father in Turkey are also proud to be parents of a shaheed. Similarly, the Muslims of the Tawheed Masjid in Farmington Hills, Michigan are thankful to Allah for the design of their Masjid by this shaheed. May Allah grant him a lofty place in Paradise. Ameen!!! True story.. Adapted from: ‘International Muslim Youth’ booklet By Imtiaz Ahmad Madina Munawwara
  15. International Muslim Youth

    Renda wished to look like a Muslim physically as well. He wore Islamic Turkish dress all the time, even on the job. I asked him, "Does your employer object to your dress since you have to represent the firm in many places?" Renda said, " They have to accept me the way I am if they want me." I repeated, "Don't you experience some prejudice at your job because of Islamic dress?" Renda bluntly said, "That is their problem. I like his turban." I asked him to show me how to tie it up so gracefully. Renda made outstanding contributions to various Islamic communities. He used to present Islam to the inmates of American prisons. This requires a great deal of time and patience. Renda's experiences with prisons were very positive. Renda felt that these new Muslims in prison needed a special form of brief but comprehensive literature. He developed such pamphlets on his own and at his own expense. He wanted me to review these pamphlets. I found these very pertinent for the use of new Muslims. May Allah reward him for these efforts. Renda's contribution to Farmington Hill's Masjid is also unique. About a two and a half acre land was purchased for a Masjid in Farmington Hills. Renda came up with many options for constructing the Masjid and the parking lot at that site. The present architectural layout of the Masjid was exclusively done by Renda. Bids were taken from various firms for the architectural drawing. Renda's company gave a high bid. Renda advised to pick the lower bid of another firm. Renda, however, did the detailed drawing of the Masjid to help this firm. We both had very lengthy and tiresome meetings with the architectural firm. Renda never complained about it. Without Renda's professional help, this Masjid would never have been built. Renda's personal life was very unique too. He went to Turkey for marriage. He did not ask his parents to arrange a marriage for him in a rich family. Renda told me that he picked a girl from an average family on his own. He knew that his wife did not know anything about Islam but he was confident and determined to teach her Islam. Renda felt that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and all other prophets were ordered by Allah to start preaching and teaching among their near and dear ones first. Renda not only taught her Islam, but served as an outstanding model for her. With the help of Allah she acquired Islamic knowledge very fast. Both cherished this Islamic way of life. Allah blessed them with two daughters.
