You who have iman! remember Allah much, and glorify Him in the morning and the evening. (Surat al-Ahzab, 41-42)
The Qur'an gives the good news of the production of petroleum
“Glorify the Name of your Lord, the Most High: He Who created and molded; He Who determined and guided; He Who brings forth green pasture, then makes it blackened stubble. (Surat al-A’la, 1–5)
As is known the oil or petroleum are formed from the remains of rotten marine plants and animals. These remains that decay in sea beds for millions of years leave some oily material behind. These oily materials remaining under mud and big rocks transform into petroleum and gas.
Underground movements sometimes cause oceans to turn into lands and the burial of rocks consisting of petroleum into thousands of meter deep. The petroleum sometimes leak through the pores in the rock layers, surface from kilometers of depth and simply evaporate, leaving behind a debris of tar.
The three things that Allah draws our attention in the first four verses of Surat al-Ala are in great concurrence with the stages of petroleum’s formation. First of with all the Arabic word “al mar’AA” which means range or pasture it is highly probable that there is reference to the organic materials that play a major role in the formation of petroleum. The second word that draws our attention is the word “ahwa” that is used to describe smudgy colors meaning greenish black, blackish. This word can also be considered as blackening of plant wastes that have cumulated under the ground in time since these words are supported by a third word “gutha-an.” In some interpretations of the Qur’an the word “gutha-an” which is translated as the small frey also means the mixture of grass, wastes, leaves and foam thrown around by streams. Due to the meaning of “throwing up” of this word it is translated as “throwing up of the flood” and is described as “earth’s throwing up of petroleum.” Indeed when the formation of petroleum, the way it comes into existence, its foamy appearance and color are considered, the erudite use of the word is better grasped.
As it is seen the transformation of the plant into a black liquid is very much similar to the formation of petroleum. In a time when people knew nothing about the formation of petroleum the existence of such a detailed description in the verse is evidence that the Qur’an is the revelation of Allah.
“Truly it is revelation sent down by the Lord of all the worlds.” (Surat ash-Shu‘ara’, 192)
Lupin; a plant that can make weather forecast
Making weather forecast is possible for a human being by various methods. However if a plant has the capability to make weather forecast, then this is an amazing wonder of Creation.
The lupin plant in Arctic tundras makes weather forecast. In the light of this forecast, if it feels the weather conditions do not permit, it does not sprout but lapses into a kind of sleep under the earth and waits for the clement weather. In certain times of the year, the seeds of this plant needs warm weather to grow. Once the seeds feel the weather is not warm enough, a miracle happens and although the environmental conditions prove to be proper, the seeds do not sprout and, within the frozen earth, waits for the weather to get mild in the frozen earth. When conditions permit, the lupin seeds resume to develop even after a very long sleep. Indeed it is seen that plant seeds found in rock fractures remained there for hundreds of years and they neither got rot nor sprouted.
As it is seen the seed undergoes some changes as if it were aware of the outside conditions. To stress the importance of this subject, let us once again ask the following questions: how does the information of the outside reach the roots? Is it possible for the plant to be aware of the outside, that is, to make weather forecast. A mechanism within the seed informs the seed about the situation. Upon this information the seed abruptly ceases its development as if it received an order. In this case how did this communication system come into being? Did the plant think about this system itself and find it? How did it bring about the technical equipment within its system?
Surely the plant did not discover this system itself. In the genetic code of the seed which exists from the moment the plant first appears, this capability is already coded. It is by means of this genetic code that the lupin has the system which freezes its development when faced with cold weather. It is impossible for the information coding within the plant cell to come into existence all by itself. No matter how long the imaginary development process evolutionists propound may be, and no matter what kind of incidents take place in the meantime, it is impossible for such a system that informs the plant seeds about the weather conditions to have come about by itself. It is Almighty Allah – the One Who holds everything under His sway- Who grants these features to the plant.
The test will end when the Sun rises in the West, and the faith of those who believe after that will be of no benefit
Hazrat Abu Hurairah relates: "The Messenger of Allah (saas) said:
"THE DAY OF RECKONING WILL NOT COME UNTIL THE SUN RISES FROM WHERE IT SETS. WHEN IT RISES FROM THE WEST, PEOPLE WILL SEE AND BELIEVE. HOWEVER, THAT FAITH WILL BENEFIT NONE WHO HAD NOT BELIEVED BEFORE OR THOSE WHO EARNED NO MERIT THROUGH THE FERVOR OF THEIR FAITH." [Buhari, ar-Riqaq 39, Istisqa 27, Zekât 9; Muslim, Iman 248, (157); Abu Dawud, al-Malahem 12, (4312).] [Al-Kutub As-Sittah Translation and Commentary, Akçag Press: 14/324.]
|“The Sun will rise in the West, people will believe en masse, BUT THE FAITH OF THOSE WHO HAD NO FAITH BEFORE WILL BENEFIT THEM NOTHING.” (Al-Tajrid al-Sarih Translation, XII 307; Muslim, Kitab al-Fitan, 118)|
|"WHEN THE SUN RISES FROM THE WEST, WHAT PEOPLE CARRIED IN THEIR HEARTS WILL BE SEALED AND THE RECORDING ANGELS WILL WITHDRAW. THE ANGELS WILL BE COMMANDED TO RECORD NO MORE DEEDS."[Al-Kutub As-Sittah Translation and Commentary, Akçag Press: 14/324-327.]|
BEDIUZZAMAN TELLS THAT WHEN THE SUN RISES FROM THE WEST THE DOOR OF REPENTANCE WILL BE CLOSED
Since belief and accountability are a test, a trial, a competition within the bounds of man’s will, theoretical issues that are obscure, profound, and in need of careful study and experiment cannot be obvious. They should not be so compelling that everyone has to affirm them willy-nilly. For in this way the Abu Baqr’s may rise to the highest of the high and the Abu Jahl’s descend to the lowest of the low. If there is no will, there is no accountability. It is because of this mystery and wisdom that miracles are displayed only rarely, and in this realm of accountability, like some allegorical verses of the Qur’an, the signs of the end of the world, which will be visible and seen, are obscure and open to interpretation. SINCE WHEN THE SUN RISES IN THE WEST IT WILL BE SO CLEAR EVERYONE WILL BE COMPELLED TO AFFIRM IT, THE DOOR OF REPENTANCE WILL BE CLOSED AND REPENTANCE AND BELIEF WILL NO LONGER BE ACCEPTED.(The Rays / The Fifth Ray - p. 99)
The invalidity of the claim that ''RNA is the forebear of life''
The RNA world thesis is a supposed savior launched by Darwinists out of a sense of despair at the failure of all experiments regarding the beginning of life. But everyone who understands science and the complexity of the cell will inevitably find it illogical for Darwinists, who have never manufactured even a single protein, to make such a claim. In the absence of a single protein of the first imaginary cell they claim for the beginning of life, Darwinists claim that RNA is responsible for the whole thing, in all its wondrous complexity. But when it comes to how RNA itself first appeared, they are again, as always, silent.
The eminent University of San Diego California evolutionist Dr. Leslie Orgel, a colleague of Stanley Miller and Francis Crick, refers to the possibility of “life beginning with the RNA world” as a “scenario.” Orgel sets out the characteristics that RNA would have to possess and the impossibility of its doing so in an article titled "The Origin of Life on the Earth" in the October 1994 issue of American Scientist:
This scenario could have occurred, we noted, if prebiotic RNA had two properties not evident today: A capacity to replicate without the help of proteins and an ability to catalyze every step of protein synthesis.(Leslie E. Orgel, "The Origin of Life on the Earth", Scientific American, October 1994, Vol. 271, p. 78)
It is of course impossible for such a RNA to exist.
NORTH AMERICAN BEARSKULL
Age: 50,000 years old
Size: 26.6 centimeters (10.5 in)
Pointing out a few anatomical similarities between bears and dogs, evolutionists claim that both evolved from a common ancestor. Fossil records, on the other hand, reveal that this is not so. Not a single fossil belonging to a half dog/half bear creature has yet been found, although thousands of fossils show that bears were always bears and dogs were always dogs. The bear skull fossil pictured is evidence that bears have not undergone any evolution.
This book is based on other works by the same author dealing with the collapse of the theory of evolution.
The aim in compiling this anthology is to let readers easily obtain information on all matters concerning evolution and to have access to the most accurate facts. You can thus acquire the most practical, accurate and reliable information regarding all the terms and concepts you may encounter regarding the theory of evolution in the press, in magazines, books, TV programs and other media.
The hypothetical claims made by those who advocate the theory of evolution—and how their assertions are invalidated by the scientific facts and recently discovered evidence—are set out in an encyclopedic format, under alphabetical headings.
