Why The Subatomic World Is Important To Everything In The Quran

Understanding Space, is a Tafsir to the Quran because Allah promised that “In time We shall make them fully understand Our messages [through what they perceive] in the utmost horizons [of the universe] and within themselves [the microscopic world], so that it will become clear unto them that this [revelation] is indeed the truth.” [Qur’an 41:53]

This work answers one of the most important questions in Islam, where does our spirituality come from…what is it and what causes it.

Allah taught this to mankind 1400 years ago in a vocabulary the world could understand but the world witnessed great change in a very short span of time and we lost our link to the past, our language.

The Quran is for all generations of muslims right to the Hour, it is also a guide to the none muslims because the promise above was made to them in the time of the prophet (saws), hence mankind’s understanding of the universe is fulfilling that promise. Allah purposefully spoke about the science behind the universe in the Quran. Otherwise how can man see this revelation is the truth, if what He establishes with science is irrelevant to the Quran, while the aim of it’s discovery is to prove; “That this [revelation] is the truth”.

He assured the Ummah of this when He said “We have explained in detail in this Qur’an, for the benefit of mankind, every kind of similitude”(18:54)

This work will show that when Allah talks about spirituality He is talking about the subatomic world, in a language Arabs could understand, it surrounds the entire body and it’s effects we feel through our senses influencing our mind and consciousness.

Allah taught us this in surah al Shams (91) “By the sun and it’s radiant brightness…And inspired it (the self with conscience of) what is wrong for it and (what is) right for it. He is indeed successful who causeth it to grow,” He taught about the universe in the verse of light (24:35) and in Surah al Takwir how the “ecosystem” of space is connected to the ecosystem of the earth through subatomic fields like the sun’s rays and how man is connected to both through his physiology, which was the lesson He taught to the Angels when He first showed them Man (2:31-33), that the subatomic and its forces’s is man’s spirituality and how he will come to know Allah in a place that would other wise corrupt him.

This work is comprised of three chapters then a supplementary section that briefly elaborates on various points in the work. The work was originally three separate articles which i wrote on this subject, so some repetition in quotes occurs but they are few.

The People of Al-A’raf [a boundary between Hell and Paradise]

By Shah Waliullah al-Muhaddith al-Dahlawi

Translated by Shaykh Muhammadullah Khalili Qasmi

Companions of the A’raf [a boundary between Hell and Paradise] are of various types. Some of them are as follows:

[1] People whom the message of Islam did not reach in the first place, such as residents of mountain tops who have not associated anyone with their Lord nor rejected [His existence] but they have also not believed in Him. They are like animals which do not turn to God, neither in negation nor confirmation. They pay attention to the things of their interest only.

Or it is such that they received the message of Islam but they did not derive benefit from it on account of their ignorance, such as those people who did not understood the language of Islam nor did they grasp its argument.

Or they were brought up heedless towards such deep thinking. The extent of their knowledge was that Muslims are people whose turbans are of a particular type and whose shirts are of a particular sort and who eat certain things and hold certain others as forbidden. Continue reading

Imam Abu Hanifah and the Roman Envoy

One day, the ruler of Rome at the time sent an envoy to Baghdad with three challenges for the Muslims. When the messenger reached the city, he informed the khalîfah that he had three questions which he challenged the Muslims to answer.

The khalîfah gathered together all the scholars of the city and the Roman messenger climbed upon a high platform and said, “I have come with three questions. If you answer them, then I will leave with you a great amount of wealth which I have brought from the king of Rome.” As for the questions, they were: “What was there before Allâh?” “In which direction does Allâh face?” “What is Allâh engaged in at this moment?”

The great assembly of people were silent. In the midst of these brilliant scholars and students of Islam was a man looking on with his young son. “O my dear father!

I will answer him and silence him!” said the youth. So the boy sought the permission of the khalîfah to give the answers and he was given the permission to do so.

The Roman addressed the young Muslim and repeated his first question, “What was there before Allâh?”

The boy asked, “Do you know how to count?”

“Yes,” said the man.

“Then count down from ten!” So the Roman counted down, “ten, nine, eight, …” until he reached “one” and he stopped counting

“But what comes before ‘one’?” asked the boy.

“There is nothing before one-that is it!” said the man. “Well then, if there obviously is nothing before the arithmetic ‘one’, then how do you expect that there should be anything before the ‘One’ who is Absolute Truth, All-Eternal, Everlasting the First, the Last, the Manifest, the Hidden?”

Now the man was surprised by this direct answer which he could not dispute. So he asked, “Then tell me, in which direction is Allâh facing?”

“Bring a candle and light it,” said the boy, “and tell me in which direction the flame is facing.” “But the flame is just light- it spreads in each of the four directions, North, South, East and West. It does not face any one direction only,” said the man in wonderment. The boy then said, “Then if this physical light spreads in all four directions such that you cannot tell me which way it faces, then what do you expect of the Nûr-us-Samâwâti -wal-’Ard: Allâh – the Light of the Heavens and the Earth!? Light upon Light, Allâh’s Light encompasses all directions at all times.”

The Roman was stupefied and astounded that here was a young child answering his challenges in such a way that he could not argue against the
proofs. So, he desperately wanted to try his final question. But before doing so, the boy said,

“Wait! You are the one who is asking the questions and I am the one who is giving the answer to these challenges. It is only fair that you should come down to where I am standing and that I should go up where you are right now, in order that the answers may be heard as clearly as the questions.” This seemed reasonable to the Roman, so he came down from where he was standing and the boy ascended the platform. Then the man repeated his final challenge, “Tell me, what is Allâh doing at this moment?” Continue reading

The Wisdom of Imam al-Shafi’i (r.a.)

ما أفلح من طلب العلم إلا بالقلة

The students of knowledge do not succeed except for a few.

And he رحمه الله said:

كذبت قط، ولا حلفت بالله ، ولا تركت غسل الجمعة ، وما شبعت منذ ست عشرة سنة ، إلا شبعة طرحتها من ساعتي

I never lied, or swore by Allah, or left the ritual bath on Friday. I did not have a full stomach for sixteen years, except once and I did not go back to it.

And he رحمه الله said:

من لم تعزه التقوى ، فلا عز له

Whoever is not honored by fearing Allah, then there is no honor for him.

And he رحمه الله said:

ما فزعت من الفقر قط, طلب فضول الدنيا عقوبة عاقب بها الله أهل التوحيد

I was never afraid of poverty. Seeking an excess to what one needs in this world is a punishment with which Allah punished the people of monotheism. Continue reading

Yajooj And Majooj (Gog And Magog)

Book of the End: Great Trials and Tribulations

By Ibn Katheer

After ‘Eesa ibn Maryam kills the Dajjaal, Yajooj and Majooj (Gog and Magog) will come out. And through the blessings of ‘Eesa’s supplications, Allah will then destroy them in a single night. Allah it said:

“Until when Yajooj and Maim] (Gog and Magog) are let loose (from their barrier), and they swoop down from every mound. And the true promise (Day of Resurrection) shall draw near (of fulfillment). Then (when mankind is resurrected from their graves), you shall see the eyes of the disbelievers fixedly stare in horror. (They will say): “Woe to us! We were indeed heedless of this; nay, but we were Zalimoon (polytheists and wrongdoers, etc.). “Qur’an 21:96-97.

And Allah said regarding the story of Thil-Qarnain:

“Then he followed (another way), until, when he reached between two mountains, he found, before (near) them (those two mountains), a people who scarcely understood a word. They said: “O Dhul-Qarnain! Verily! Yalu] and Majuj (Gog and Magog) are doing great mischief in the land. Shall we then pay you a tribute in order that you might erect a barrier between us and them?” He said: “That (wealth, authority, and power) in which my Lord had established me is better (than your tribute). So help me with strength (of men). I will erect between you and them a barrier.”

“Give me pieces (blocks) of iron,” then, when he had filled up the gap between the two mountain-cliffs, he said: “Blow,” till when he had made it (red as) fire, he said: “Bring me molten copper to pour over it.” So they (Yajuj and Majuj (Gag and Magog)) were made powerless to scale it or dig through it. (Dhul-Qarnain) said: “This is a mercy from my Lord, but when the Promise of my Lord comes, He shall level it down to the ground. And the Promise of my Lord is ever true.” And on that Day (i.e. the Day Ya’juj and Ma’juj (Gog and Magog) will come out), We shall leave them to surge like waves on one another, and the Trumpet will be blown, and We shall collect them all together.” Qur’an 18: 85-99.

In the Tafseer of the story of Dhul-Qarnain – that he built the barrier from iron and copper between two mountains – we mentioned that Dhul-Qarnain said, “This is a mercy from my Lord — that through the barrier, this people who spread corruption in the earth are separated from the people.” “But when the Promise of my Lord comes”. this is referring to the time when the barrier will be destroyed and leveled down to the ground. “And the Promise of my Lord is ever true”: i.e., this matter must come to pass. And at that time, Allah “shall leave them to surge like waves on one another.” And then they will go forth among the people, traveling quickly through every mound. After that time, the trumpet will be blown. In another Verse, Allah said:

“Until, when Ya’jooj and Majuj (Gag and Magog) are let loose (from their barrier), and they swoop down from every mound. And the true promise (Day of Resurrection) shall draw near (of fulfillment). Then (when mankind is resurrected from their graves), you shall see the eyes of the disbelievers fixedly stare in horror ‘ Qur’an 21:96, 97. Continue reading
