Islamic perspective of universe

Big Bang

Where did everything come from? What is the proof?

Islam tells us Allah is both The Creator & The Evolver, of all that exits. We know Allah did not evolve

us from monkeys, and we know all things are from Allah. Please share this information with those

who deny the existence of God. They need it.

There is a popular theory referred to as the 'Big Bang' theory. It tries to explain the existence of the

universe in an evolutionary manner having an initial beginning with an immense explosion of some

gases or solid mass. Some say there first was a void or a 'nothingness', or perhaps, some gases

which exploded then from this everything in the universe simply began to evolve to the stage that

we see now. There has never really been any solid evidence for this idea of 'something out of

nothing' concept. Nor for that matter, the evolutionary theory itself.

We would like to explore the idea of creation from a purely logical standpoint using simple

terminology without religious hype, emotional pre-convictions or superstitions.

What if someone called a 'scientist' tells you his 'theory' of how cars are made is like this:

A salvage yard on the south side of town blows up and all the metal pieces fly into the air and fall

back down in one place forming a brand new Chevrolet Caprice automobile.. with no left over

parts.. and the motor is running..

Or what if his theory for how a chair is made is:

An explosion occurs in a forest and the trees go flying into the air and then suddenly they combine

with some flying cloth to make a beautiful chair... and then it lands in a furniture showroom

complete with matching table and lamp...

He further explains that:

An earthquake in California's 'Silicon Valley' causes the computer chips and circuit boards and other

various parts to fall out of their boxes and off of their shelves and just come in place together as

they are rolling around on the floor and form the most advanced technical computers existing on

the earth?...

Or what of his 'Medicine Theory'? He now claims that:

A gas leak in a pharmacy warehouse causes a terrific explosion. All the different chemicals and

substances just smash into each other in exactly the correct amounts to produce a miracle drug

which cures everything form cancer to heart and liver disease, old age and warts?...

Wait... there's more to this one:

It is all in one formula, packaged in the bottles with labels and ready to sell with no mess left on the


Now after all this exploding and excitement this 'scientist' tells you of a great place to relax and

have something to eat. It is his favorite place and he calls it: "Burger Blast"! He says:

You just go in and sit down and suddenly a 'blast' from the kitchen occurs and immediately a burger

lands right in front of you with all the trimmings.. just the way you like it complete with fries, a

drink and even your favorite dessert?...


No one works at "Burger Blast", it just runs itself, automatically cleaning itself and as you leave it

scans your billfold for a valid credit card and charges your bank account for what you have eaten?...

Now the question is: "Are you really going to accept any of this as 'fact'?"

Of course not!

We wouldn't believe a new car is made from flying junk; chairs don't fall down from exploding

trees; earthquakes do not produce computers and blasting burgers don't rain down on us from


Question: So how come we don't challenge a theory of something coming from nothing and then

colliding in the cosmos to make the universe? Is it because of its tremendous magnitude that we

have so little comprehension about it, that we are willing to accept any theory from a few telescope

'peeping Toms' to tell us that it came from 'nothingness'? Or just some gases colliding and then...

'Poof'!? Instant Universe? How?
