  3. 3. “ 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. 2010 RE-CAP FROM PREVIOUS
  4. 4. The terms " Tau h eed 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. What is the meaning ? All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail. 2010 RE-CAP FROM PREVIOUS
  5. 5. And " Tau h eed Ar-Rubub-biyyah " is the approach of confirming the Oneness of God (Allah) as also the Sustainer or Cherisher ( Ar-Rabb ), in the evidence of the wonderful order and harmonious existence of all things in this universe. What is the meaning ? All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail. 2010 RE-CAP FROM PREVIOUS
  6. 6. In analysing of the Signs of His Existence, Allah s.w.t. does not want us to be man-centred in our outlook. Allah, the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe invites man to observe yet His other greater Signs in the whole of creation. Man is just a small part of the whole creation All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail. 2010

  8. 8. "Greater indeed than the creation of man is the creation of the heavens and the earth: yet most man do not understand (what this implies.) But (then), the blind and the seeing are not equal." ( Qur'an: Ghafir 40 : 57 ) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail. 2010
  9. 9. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail. 2010
  10. 10. "Soon will We show them Our signs in the furthest regions (of the universe) and in their own souls, until it become manifest to them that this is the Truth. Is it not enough that thy Lord doth witness all things? " ( Qur'an: Fussilat: 41: 53 ) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail. 2010
  11. 11. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail. 2010
  12. 12. "(Hallowed be) He Who has created seven * heavens in full harmony with one another,­ no fault will thou see in the creation of the Most Gracious. And turn thy vision (upon it) once more, canst thou see any flaw? Again turn thy vision a second time; (thy) vision will come back to thee dull and discomfited, in a state worn out. “ ( Q : Mulk: 67: 3 -4 ) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail. 2010
  13. 13. * In the Arabic usage , - as in other Semitic languages as well, the number " seven "' is often synonymous with " several " (see Lisanul Arab). The term " sama' " (" heaven " or " sky ”) is applied to anything that is spread like a canopy above any other thing. Thus, the visible skies which stretch like a vault above the earth and form, as it were, its canopy, are called " sama' ": and this is the primary meaning of this term in the Qur’an in a wider sense, it has the connotation of " cosmic system ". Thus, taken together with the accepted linguistic definition, " seven heavens " denotes the multiplicity of cosmic system . All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail. 2010
  14. 14. So after analysing our biological wonders (inner), let us now turn towards the horizon of this vast universe (outer) .... All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail. 2010
  15. 15. Because our awareness is limited to ourselves and our immediate surroundings, we tend to regard the entire creations of Allah s.w.t. within this limitation and therefore fail to fully grasp the Might of Allah, the One Absolute Creator and Sustainer. With our given faculties, we are invited to survey the vast universe in which confirmation of the Oneness of Allah, the Creator and Sustainer is ever manifested. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail. 2010
  16. 16. Allah s.w.t. hints at the full harmony and the perfect order which is an inevitable indication of this Truth. See and reflect. The simple statement of the Qur'an is in actual fact very profound to those who have knowledge of the universe. For many of us although we may know about the sun, the moon and the stars yet this knowledge of ours is simply a superficial awareness; lacking depth. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail. 2010
  17. 17. We are like a man standing beside a deep ravine at night without knowing how deep and dangerous it is, therefore lacking true awareness. But, when the deep ravine becomes apparent at daybreak, it sent chills down our spine especially fearing for our safety. Thus knowledge, like Astronomy is relevant and important as a means towards our deeper realization of Tau h eed , the knowledge of certainty. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail. 2010

  19. 19. Twinkle, twinkle little star? We are not quite aware of the vastness of the universe. Many of us have seen and have described the stars as " twinkling little star ." Our short-sightedness does not help us to really feel the awesome grandeur of Allah's creation. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail. 2010
  20. 20. Twinkle, twinkle little star? Studies in astronomy show that the number of stars in the sky is more numerous than all the grains of sand on all the seashores of our planet, many stars being vastly greater in size than our earth, some even are so enormous that each has the girth the size of which can contain hundreds of thousand of earths inside them and still have room to spare! A few of them are even big enough to contain millions of earths! All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail. 2010

  22. 22. How vast is the Universe? Astronomers estimate that the universe consists of five hundred million galaxies. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail. 2010
  23. 23. How vast is the Universe? Each galaxy contains about 100,0000 stars. The nearest galaxy i.e. our galaxy, the Milky Way, which is partially visible at night, measures in 100,000 light years * across. * (Light travels at 186,282 miles per second. And a light year means that it would require one year travelling at this speed to cover that distance !! ) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail. 2010
  24. 24. How vast is the Universe? According to astronomers, we on earth are 30,000 light years way from the centre of this galaxy. This galaxy in turn forms part of an even larger super-galaxy within which 17 galaxies similar to ours are in perpetual motion. The entire cluster is 2 million light years in diameter.

  27. 27. "And it is We who have-built the universe with (Our creative) power; and, verily, it is We who are steadily expanding it.. “ ( Qur'an: Az-Dzariyat: 51 :47 ) EVER EXPANDING All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail. 2010
  28. 28. We are told that the size of the universe is not static but expanding every moment in all directions. So rapid is this expansion that according to an estimate by Sir Arthur Stanley Eddington (1882-1944), noted British physicist and astronomer, every 1300 million years, all the distances in this universe are doubled. This estimation of the vastness of the universe is based on Einstein's theory of relativity. But this is just a mathematician's guess. The truth is man has yet to comprehend the vastness of the universe. EVER EXPANDING All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail. 2010

  33. 33. Ever moving in harmony All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail. 2010
  34. 34. Ever moving in harmony The innumerable stars are continuously moving at extraordinary speeds. Some moving singly, some in groups of two or more, while innumerable stars are grouped in constellations. Have you not seen dust particles in a darken room when you allow a small ray of light to shine through. Now imagine on a much larger scale! All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail. 2010
  35. 35. Ever moving in harmony The difference is that dust particles collide and move in combination whereas stars, notwithstanding their enormous numbers are at immeasurable distances from each other and follow their respective courses. Apart from this, the stars have their planets orbiting around it, and their respective satellites or moon are also perpetually in motion following their fixed orbits around the planets. Each planet also is rotating at incredible speed on its own axis. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail. 2010
  36. 36. Ever moving in harmony It is amazing that all this motion is going on with a remarkable organization and regularity. Neither do the stars collide, nor does their speed alter. The revolution of our earth around the sun, its rotation around its axis and the movement of the moon around it, all are precisely timed. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail. 2010
  37. 37. Ever moving in harmony According to astronomical calculations, it has frequently happened that entire galactic systems consisting of millions and millions of moving stars have entered other galactic systems and have passed right through them without colliding. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail. 2010
  38. 38. Ever moving in harmony In the face of all these evidence, human intellect is left with no option but to accept that this is NOT a self -organised system, left to “ chance ”. On the contrary it MUST be by a unique Power which set them up and maintain such boundless and infinitely varied system. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail. 2010
  39. 39. CONCLUSION All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail. 2010 Those who insist that this creation happens from random chance, surely, are resting on the most remotest of probability – because it would be like admitting that order and harmony can come out from disorder and anarchy!
  40. 40. CONCLUSION All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail. 2010 How stubbornly foolish! Nay, if we sincerely look within our heart and mind, especially reinforced and supported by our pure intuition ( fitrah ), these evidence prove clearly of the existence of an absolute Creator and Sustainer. And there can only be One God Who is the Absolute - and to deny this is to conceal or cover an obvious truth (the attitude termed ' kufr ' ).
  41. 41. "Our Lord! not for naught hast Thou created (all) this! Glory to Thee! Give us salvation from the penalty of the Fire. ( Qur’an: Aali ‘Imran: 3: 191 ) CONCLUSION
