Brother Ron,

Peace be on you.

All it needs is an open mind to judge whether Islam is in the 21st century or otherwise. Only if u read things carefully and deeply. Only if you do your own research with the authentic sources of Islam (Qur'an and Hadeeth).

Verse from the Glorious Qur'an from Surah… from Surah Fussilat, Ch. 41, Verse 53, which says: ‘That soon We shall show them Our signs in the farthest reaches of the horizons, and into their souls, until it is clear to them, that this is the truth.'

As far as Qur'an and modern Science is concerned, in the field of ‘Astronomy', the Scientists, the Astronomers, a few decades earlier, they described, how the universe came into existence - They call it the ‘Big Bang'. And they said… ‘Initially there was one primary nebula, which later on it separated with a Big Bang, which gave rise to Galaxies, Stars, Sun and the Earth, we live in.' This information is given in a nutshell in the Glorious Qur'an, in Surah Ambiya, Ch. 21, Verse No. 30, which says…. (Arabic).... Do not the unbelievers see…? …. (Arabic)…. ‘That the heavens and the earth were joined together, and we clove them asunder.' Imagine this information which we came to know recently, the Qur'an mentions 14 hundred years ago.

See, the Qur'an is for those who are seeking the truth. Some may require 10 signs, some may require 100. Some, even after a 1000 signs are given, they will not accept the truth. Qur'an calls such people, as in Surah Baqarah Ch. 2, Verse 18 … ‘The deaf, the dumb, the blind, they will not return to the true path.' The Bible says the same thing in Gospel of Mathew, Ch. No. 13, Verse No. 13… ‘Seeing they see not, hearing they hear not, neither will they understand.'

Regarding the concept of Earth, there are various Scientists who have described… ‘How will the world end.' Hypothesis - Some may be right, some may be wrong. But either the world will perish or the world will live forever. Both cannot take place simultaneously – It is unscientific. But this is exactly what the Bible says. It is mentioned in the Bible, in the book of Hebrews, Ch. No.1 Verses No.10 and 11, and the book of Psalms, Ch. No.102, Verse No.25 and 26, that…‘Almighty God created the Heavens and the Earth, and they will perish.' Exactly opposite is mentioned in the book of Ecclesiastics, Ch. No.1, Verse No.4, and the book of Psalms, Ch. No.78, Verse No.69, that… ‘The earth will abide forever.' How can both be possible dear Ron?

Dear Ron, Bible says in Genesis Ch. No. 1 Verses No. 3 and 5,…‘Light was created on the first day.' Genesis, Ch., 1 Verses, 14 to 19… ‘The cause of light - stars and the sun, etc. was created on the fourth day'. How can the cause of light be created on the 4th day - later than the light which came into existence on the first day? - It is unscientific. Or can you prove otherwise?

Regarding ‘the Heavens', the Bible says in Job, Ch. 26, Verse 11, that…‘The pillars of the Heaven will tremble.' Qur'an says in Surah Luqman, Ch. 31, Verse No.10, that…‘The Heavens are without any pillars - Don`t you see? Don't you see the Heavens are without any pillars? - Bible says heaven have got pillars. Not only do the Heavens have got pillars - Bible says in the first book of Samuel, Ch. No.2 Verses No.8, as well as the book of Job Ch. No.9, Verse No.6, and the book of Psalms Ch. No.75, Verse No.3, that… ‘Even the earth have got pillars.' Do you have an answer dear Ron?

I can continue and give you a list of signs that will show you whether Bible is in conflict with Science or if the same can be said of the Qur'an.

Brother Ron, I would like to end with the quotation of the Glorious Qur'an from Surah Isra Chapter.17, Verse No.81, which says: "When truth is hurled against falsehood, falsehood perishes, for falsehood is by its nature bound to perish."

Dear Ron,

May you find truth in all its beauty.

Faisal
