  17. 17. RE-CAP PREVIOUS LESSON OUR PROPHET MUHAMMAD SAID: "(To know Allah) Think (and reflect) upon Allahs creation (i.e. what He has created) and do not try to think in Allah (His Essence: Dzat), for you will most certainly not be able to comprehend it.“ (Al-Hadith)All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)

  20. 20. “O MANKIND! Worship your (ROBB) Sustainer, who (KHALAQO-KUM) has created you and those who lived before you, so that you might remain conscious of Him who has made the earth a resting-place for you and the sky a canopy, and has sent down water from the sky and thereby brought forth fruits for your sustenance: do not, then, claim that there is any power that could rival Allah, when you know [that He is One].” (Qur’an: Baqarah: 2: 21-22)All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  21. 21. For those with knowledge …… “Of all His servants, only such as are endowed with (innate) knowledge stand (truly) in awe of Allah: (for they alone comprehend that) verily, Allah is Almighty, Much Forgiving.” (Qur’an: Fatir 35 : 40)All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  22. 22. For those with knowledge …… • The terms "TAUHEED AL-KHALIQ-QIYYAH" refers to the approach of confirming the Oneness of God (Allah) as the Creator (AL-KHAA-LIQ), verified from the evidence inherent in the whole of creation.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  23. 23. For those with knowledge ……All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  24. 24. For those with knowledge …… “ALL PRAISE is due to Allah, (KHALAQA-AS-SAMA’) who has created the heavens and the earth, and brought into being deep darkness as well as light: and yet, those who are bent on denying the truth regard other powers as their Sustainers equals! .He it is who (KHALAQA-KUM) has created you out of clay, and then has decreed a term [for you] - a term known [only] to him. And yet you doubt –” (Qur’an: An-’am: 6: 1-2)All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  25. 25. For those with knowledge …… • And "TAUHEED AR-RUB-BU-BIYYAH" is the approach of confirming the Oneness of God (Allah) as also being the Sustainer or Cherisher (AR-ROBB) , in the evidence of the wonderful order and harmonious existence of all things in this universe.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)

  27. 27. An invitation to reflect "Behold! In the creation of the heavens and the earth and in the alternation of Night and Day, there are indeed Signs for men of understanding, Men who celebrate the praises of Allah, standing sitting and lying down on their sides and contemplate the wonders of creation in the heavens and the earth, (with a thought): "Our Lord! You have not created this for nothing! Glory to Thee! Give us salvation from the penalty of the Fire." (Qur’an : Ali Imran 3 : 190-191 )All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  28. 28. The greatest evidence of Allah s.w.t., for us to confirm and verify is the whole of creation. Nature and the study of nature both proclaim to us the fact that there is one God Who, in His infinite Wisdom has created and continues to sustain this universe.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  29. 29. The superb order, organization and meaningfulness of the things in nature perceive by us cannot be explained except that it must have been brought into existence by a Creator - a Being with an infinite intelligence and not by a blind force.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  30. 30. • The highly complex order in things, the sophistication and intricacies of design towards certain utility does not portray haphazardness in nature but rather indicates a "Will " of One Who is Able and Wise.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  31. 31. • This is discernible by those who exercises their reasoning faculty when observing nature, a characteristic which Allah enjoins upon us Muslims to be. • And Allah s.w.t. warns those who are heedless due to their neglect of the apparent signs and deem them as beasts or worse than that:All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)

  33. 33. "Many are the Jinns (spirits) and men We have made for Hell: They have hearts wherewith they understand not, eyes wherewith they see not, and ears wherewith they hear not. They are like cattle,- nay more misguided: for they are heedless (of warning)." ( Qur’an : Araf: 7 :179 )All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)

  40. 40. Do you know .... The eye is the world’s most efficient ‘television station’ : it takes in flawless pictures in colour and transmits them without the least blurring to the brain. It takes a photographer to appreciate fully the working of the eye. Like any camera it is in a small dark box, with an aperture in front filled with a transparent pane (as a window).All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  41. 41. Do you know .... In front of this pane there is a shutter of variable speed, called ‘iris’, with adjustable slit and automatic release. Behind, there is the crystalline lens whose curvature is continually adjusted by automatic muscles so that whatever is looked upon is always sharply focus. Six large powerful muscles control the movements of the eye and point it in any desired direction.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  42. 42. Do you know .... • The delicate part of this precision instrument are kept clean by the eye-lids, which are ‘window wipers’ and use a cleaning fluid secreted by the gland at the corner of the eye and poured in through a siphon. • A constant temperature is maintained, as in a laboratory with highly sensitive apparatus, by means of a heat regulating membrane called ‘choroid’.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  43. 43. Do you know .... The photographic plate of the eye is a small screen at the back, called ‘retina’, on to which the images of the things we see are focussed. The retina can take 10 different pictures each second – 800,000 pictures a day, wiping itself clean after each. It is so fast that 30,000 separate points of light can be recorded by a single square millimetre (the size of a nail-head) of its surface.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  44. 44. Do you know .... All the pictures are in vivid colour, with sharp outlines, and delicate shading; they are, besides, movies in three dimension (3-D), thanks to the stereoscopic focus of the two eyeballs on our head.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  45. 45. All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  46. 46. Do you know .... Long before man discovered wireless, the ear ‘knew’ all that was to be known about the reception of sound waves. The human ear consists of a funnel beautifully adapted to pick up sounds and equipped with fleshy folds which enable it to perceive the direction from which the sound comes.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  47. 47. Do you know .... • Inside the ear, fine hairs and a sticky wax prevent harmful insects, dust, etc. from getting in. • Across the inner end of the funnel there is a tightly stretched membrane, the ear-drum, which vibrates like the skin of the tabla (Indian percussion instrument) when sound waves strike it.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  48. 48. Do you know .... • The vibrations are then passed on and amplified by three bones (the hammer, the stirrup and the anvil) whose relative sizes are precisely adjusted to produce just the needed amplification. Indeed, these bones never grow. • Amazingly, these bones are of exactly the same size as in the infant and in the adult.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  49. 49. Do you know .... • The amplified vibrations are carried by the bones to another membrane just beyond which lies the wonderful organ of hearing, the inner ear. • This is a small tube (the cochlea) coiled up like the shell of a snail, and filled with a liquid in which a harp of 6,000 strings ranging in length from 1/20 to ½ mm, hang suspended.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  50. 50. Do you know .... Each string vibrates to a particular frequency of sound so that the ear can hear all possible combinations of 6,000 different sounds.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  51. 51. Do you know .... • The vibration of the strings are transmitted to 18,000 nerve cells whose fibres communicate with the brain.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  52. 52. All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  53. 53. • The Brain is the centre which controls, directs and coordinates the varied activities of all the innumerable organs of the body. • It receives messages from each of the senses, interprets them, sends the proper replies to the organs concerned so that the body reacts appropriately, and registers all the information received in the storage memory.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  54. 54. • Think of a huge telephone exchange in continual contact with every man, woman and child on earth, sending and receiving messages to and from each other one every few seconds -and you have a faint idea of the incredibly complex organization of the brain.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  55. 55. • In the white and grey matter of the brain there are nearly a thousand million nerve cells. • Each is an electric battery and a small telegraph transmitter. Each cell branches out into a number of fine conducting threads, the nerve fibres, which extend to all parts of the body.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  56. 56. A large number of them run down the hollow back-bone, twisted together into a thick cable, the spinal cord. Admirably, this is protected by the bony and well-cushioned walls of the spine. Through these tiny threads, each of which is covered with an insulating sheath, a current flows at the speed of about 70 m.p.h., carrying messages through and from the brain, with marvellous speed and accuracy.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  57. 57. There is an elaborate system of relays, condensers, switches etc .. (to use technical terms), which permits the transmission of the most unexpected messages between the brain and each of the millions of cells it controls, without the least confusion or delay.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  58. 58. Obvious conclusion • From the foregoing, we cannot imagine that the brain is just a lump of matter, accidentally placed in our head ! ? • On the contrary, it is invested with profound significance for which we should exclaim glorification, "SubhaanAllah! Alhamdulillaah! Mashaa-Allaah! Allahu Akbar!“All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  59. 59. Obvious conclusion • Empirical science can only explain the "how" or the workings of physics, but never the "why" - whose meaning lies in metaphysic. Why does it work that way? It must be because of an irresistible "Will", that must have prepared it for its future functional use outside the womb. • The scientific fact shows that its existence and sustainment requires a "Will" or an "Intelligent Being” who is both its Creator and the Sustainer.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  60. 60. Obvious conclusion It is impossible for anything so meaningful and complex and yet orderly in its function to exist without the need for God (Allah), the Absolute One God, Who is the Creator, Sustainer, Nourisher of the Universe.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  61. 61. "Were they created of nothing, or were they themselves the creators? “ (Quran: Surah Tur: 51: 35)All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)

  63. 63. The Lungs • Who created the lungs? Does it simply come out of nothing (i.e. mere random chance)? • These are organs which bring the blood into contact with clean fresh air – ‘as if they knew’, long before we ourselves were aware of the fact, that to purify the blood nothing is better than a good bath of oxygen.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  64. 64. The Lungs • At each breath, air is drawn into more than 1,500,000 little air sacs in the lungs, which if spread out would cover an area of some 200 square yards - the size of a nice little vegetable plot.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  65. 65. The Lungs • These little balloon-like sacs are made of a thin elastic tissue which allows air to pass through but prevents blood from oozing in. • The blood is carried to the lungs through 50,000,000,000 tiny hair thin tubes which form a close network all along the outside of the little balloons of the lungs.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  66. 66. The Lungs • Each day they bring in some 10,000 litres of blood. Oxygen is sucked in by the red blood cells, while waste products of the body like carbon dioxide and water are given up by the blood, pass into the little air sacs, and are breathed out.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  67. 67. The Lungs As long as a child is in the womb of its mother, its lungs do not function, and the flow of blood is turned away from the lungs by means of a special little door in the heart. As soon as it is born, the baby, who is on the verge of suffocation, utters a loud cry. The cry produces a whole series of wonderful changes.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  68. 68. The Lungs The great bags of the lungs open and air rushes in to fill them. A great flow of blood is drawn into the lungs which like a violent draught of air slams shut the little door inside the heart which had hitherto turned the blood away. This brings us to yet, another amazing organ – the heart. Can this be mere coincidence?All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  69. 69. All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  70. 70. • The heart is a small organ, about the size of a fist, weighing not more than eight ounces, yet this small pump can work prodigiously. • It keeps pumping day and night for a whole life-time without the least pause; rating some 100,000 strokes a day; and sending about a gallon of blood circulating through the body once every 13 seconds. • In a single day the heart pumps enough blood to fill a good-sized oil truck; and in a single year it could fill a train of 65 large oil wagons.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  71. 71. • The heart is specially built for the immense job it has to do. • Its walls are made up of very tough muscular fibres, and it is surrounded by a double membrane (pericardium) containing a fluid which lubricates its continual movement. • The beat of the heart takes place in two steps as first the upper and then the lower half contracts.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  72. 72. • This enables each half of the heart to rest while the other half is beating. • Inside the heart are four chambers, two upper chambers called ‘auricles’ and two lower chambers called ‘ventricles’. • Blood always flow from the auricles to the ventricles, and this one-way traffic is maintained by the umbrella-shaped valves which guard the openings between the chambers.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
