Spirituality and Science
Scientists till date are wondering about the great emptiness of the Universe. They ask questions like… “Why is it that no Humans and other creatures have been found in any part of the whole Universe..? Scientists are grappling with the fact that…. We live on a planet that is but a speck in the Milky Way Galaxy. The Universe is made of hundreds of billions of galaxies, with about 200 billion observable galaxies. The Milky Way Galaxy the one in which we live consist of hundred billion stars in a disc-like structure and has a diameter of 100,000 light years. They ask, Was it just pure luck that we came into existence, or is there something else underlying the structures in the Universe?

Spirituality however answers the great emptiness in the universe and our tiny speck of it. Many answers can be espoused…, but I for one believe that the emptiness of the universe has a fantastic answer in the Quran. The Quran makes us understand the beauty, the size and complexity of galaxies, the universe and even beyond. Now hear the Word of Allah (SWT)…

Say, "Do you indeed disbelieve in He who created the earth in two days and do you attribute to Him equals? That is the Lord of the Worlds." 41:9
And He placed on the earth firmly set mountains over its surface, and He blessed it and determined therein its [creatures'] sustenance in four days without distinction - for [the information] of those who ask. 41:10
Then He directed Himself to the heaven while it was smoke (gaseous state) and said to it and to the earth, "Come [into being], willingly or by compulsion." They said, "We have come willingly." 41:11
And He completed them as seven heavens within two days and inspired in each heaven its command. And We adorned the nearest heaven with lamps (stars) and as protection. That is the determination of the Exalted in Might, the All Knowing. 41:12

Frankly, Allah (SWT) has answered the questions of Scientists, and gone ahead to inform them that He is the Originator of all creation among the manifest and the hidden, and thus He is Exalted in Might and the All Knowing God…..

Indeed Allah (SWT) is the Greatest Scientist. And if Scientist will deeply search within their hearts what the eye has seen and the ears have heard, they will recognize the “Signature of Allah” on every scientific finding; and by that will be able to reconcile Spirituality and Science.

May Allah (SWT) increase us all in Knowledge, Wisdom and Understanding…. Aameen
