Explanations of verses from Surat Al-Wa'qia and Surat An-Nisa by Mr. Adnan Oktar
Surat Al-Wa'qia, Verse 61
"… In replacing you with others the same as you and re-forming you in a way you know nothing about."
"In replacing you with others the same as you…" So the soul remains but God changes the body with others. "… and re-forming you in a way you know nothing about." So God says it is not possible for you to know anything about this "re-forming" with the science you have now. That is because the foundation of science changes as the laws of physics change, as the laws of chemistry change, as the laws of biology change. What does God say; "...in a way you know nothing about." So we cannot know anything for now but we will know later on, we will know in the Hereafter. Almighty God creates logic in the Hereafter as well. For instance, this is the task of the heart and this is the task of the lungs; so there will be logic behind everything in the Hereafter as well.
Surat al-Wa'qia, Verse 62
"You have known the first formation, so will you not pay heed?"
You see the structure of the cells, you see the chromosomes, the vacuole, mitochondria and everything, you see the structure of the cytoplasm, you see the structure of viruses, and you know everything. "So will you not think, pay heed, see the depths of things and admire God?" Says God.
Surat Al-Wa'qia, Verses 63-64
"Have you thought about what you cultivate? Is it you who make it germinate or are We the Germinator?"
Who is the One Who gives that power to the seed? Let us say that you plant a seed in the soil. Let us use the comparison Bediuzzaman uses; a fig. It has a seed as big as the head of a pin, it falls on the soil; 30 years later you come and find a 30 meter high tree which gives 300,000 fruits and the code of the coming generations is inside that seed. All those big delicious figs. What is the cause behind that? It is a seed as big as the head of a pin. Let us think about this in an expedited fashion. The seed falls on the soil, it becomes a big tree and the fruits of that tree develop, there is a rain of figs. Tons of figs are collected every year. Fruits are flowing like the sea from that tree. The root of the tree is inside the soil. That is it.
Surat An-Nisa, Verse 172
"The Messiah would never disdain to be a servant to God nor would the angels near to Him. If any do disdain to worship Him, and grow arrogant, He will in any case gather them all to Him."
Look, the Messiah and the angels near to Him -meaning Gabriel and Michael- would never disdain to be a servant to God. Almighty God is talking about a person who is in the same place with the angels. There is a person who is together with the angels. Who is this? That is Jesus Messiah. What does Almighty God say for him? The Messiah and the angels near Him, God doesn't mention any other Prophet like this. There is a person who worships together with the angels. Who is this person? Jesus Messiah. This verse is one of the signs that show the Jesus Messiah is in the skies. "The Messiah would never disdain to be a servant to God nor would the angels near to Him." Meaning they are all worshipping, they have submitted to God, they are all servants to God.
"If any do disdain to worship Him, and grow arrogant, He will in any case gather them all to Him."
"If any do disdain to worship him…" There is also a mention of worshipping God. Jesus Messiah is in the skies worshipping God, and the angels are worshiping Him as well. Jesus Messiah is standing, bowing and prostrating together with the angels. That is why Almighty God says 'Jesus Messiah and the angels near to Him'; Gabriel and Michael and other angels which will enable his descent, as defined in the hadiths, there are thousands of angels helping him. They are all performing their prayers and worshiping. But what the verse implies here is that Jesus Messiah is together with the angels near Him, Gabriel, Michael and the Angel of the Trumpet, and many other angels we don't know of. These are angels that are leading the other angels. Jesus Messiah is living together with them in the same environment.
Surat An-Nisa, Verse 174
"Mankind! A clear proof has come to you from your Lord. We have sent down a Clear Light to you."
In this verse, the Clear Light refers to the Qur'an in a sense, but it also refers to the descent of the Jesus Messiah. "A clear proof has come to you from your Lord. We have sent down a Clear Light to you."
