Pearls and Gem from Surah Al Anbiya [ Letter 21 : Verse 30 ]

Friends ,

Science cannot be a tool to validate Islam . How can it be when our knowledge and collective wisdom of the Universe before us are anologous to feeble attempt of 'ants nibbling at only the very edges of a vast ocean of knowledge ' .At best we are just blind men looking at the proverbial elephant at different angles .But alas , at least through science we can be sure we are no longer looking into the anal orifice of the massive creature and saying YES !THIS IS THE ELEPHANT .Some cocky individuals still do though .Armed with superior intelligence beyond mere mortals like the rest of us ,Carl Sagan ,Stephan Hawkings et al could still not separate the tree from the branches !
Poor souls ! Knowledge ,superior as ever , without Wisdom oftentimes lead man to nowhere .

Was just going thru Surah Al Anbiya just now and came across this nugget :

'Have not those who disbelieve known that the heavens and the earth were one piece , then We parted them , and We made every living thingof water ? Will they not believe .[30]'

The Big Bang Theory which is universally accepted theory by mostly all theoretical and space physicists dealing with the cosmos ,on the birth of our universe in essense says ' the universe started as a very small ,minute but finite point [ point of singularity in quantum physics term..] which 'exploded' many million years ago giving birth to subsequently the stars the planets in the millions of galaxies .
Our universe is an ever expanding entity '.
90 percent of all living entities , mammals like us , reptiles , insects etcetc ,are H2O , water .Enough food for thought this Friday morning .

PS: Islam validates Knowledge .Assamualaikum .
