My dear Ibrahim Ali rabina yu3alimuka ana al-Qur'an lisa kitab al-3ulum

If you read Donald Redford in his book "Egypt, Canaan and Israel in ancient Egypt" we read the following on page 397:

"[T[he creation motif (in the ancient Egyptian religion) centers upon sexual union as the prime element in the act of creation. Heaven and earth were one in an embrace at the Nun, and the act of creation (of the universe) consisted of the separation of the pair by the insinuation of atmosphere or light between them the resultant elevation of the heaven meant the subsequent birth of the offsprings would be celestial and the heavenly luminaries and all the starry host duly appeared and found their natural passage along the belly of heaven."

This sounds like the big bang theory for me.

So much for Allah and his tafteeq of a piece of cloth as evidence for the big bang theory in the Qur'an!

But again if you as a Muslim can believe that Muhammad an Arabian war lord and caravan raider can be the rasul of the God of the universe you can believe anything.
