• More than 1400 years ago the Holy Quranwas revealed to Muhammad, the last prophetto humanity and the prophet of Islam. TheHoly Quran is not only a book of guidance butalso a book that refutes the basis of atheism.So you find a verse in Quran that tells us thatGod will reveal to the unbelievers signs andevidence to the creation of the universe.• God says in the Holy Quran:We will show them Our signs in the horizonsand within themselves until it becomes clearto them that it is the truth. But is it notsufficient concerning your Lord that He is,over all things, a Witness?(41:53)
In the following slides you will noticehow great and perfect the creation ofGod is, you will notice that the leastchange in Gods plan of creation meansthe impossibility of life. So God in Qurandraws our attentions to the greatness ofcreating the universe and the earth.God says in the Holy Quran:Originator of the heavens and the earth.When He decrees a matter, He only saysto it, "Be," and it is.(2:117)And also said:Originator of the heavens and the earth.When He decrees a matter, He only saysto it, "Be," and it is.(2:164)
Modern science of astrophysics revealsthat there is a wisdom and perfectcalculations behind the creation of theuniverse. These are some of the findingsof our modern science as regard thecreation of the universe.Science tells us that the least change inthese calculations means theimpossibility of the rise of life on earth.
www.knowmuhammad.orgGravityIf gravity were stronger, excessiveammonia and methane would collectin the Earth’s atmosphere, whichwould have a most damaging effecton life.If it were weaker, the Earth’satmosphere would lose excessivequantities of water, making lifeimpossible.
www.knowmuhammad.orgThe Earth’s Distance from the SunIf this were any greater, the planetwould grow very cold,the water cycle in the atmospherewould be affected, and the planetwould enter an ice-age.If the Earth were any closer to theSun, plants would burn up, thewater cycle in the Earth’satmosphere would be irreparablydamaged, and life would becomeimpossible.
www.knowmuhammad.orgThe Thickness of the Earth’s CrustIf the crust were any thicker,then an excessive amount ofoxygen would be transferredto it from the atmosphere.If it were any thinner, theresulting amount of volcanicactivity would make lifeimpossible.
www.knowmuhammad.orgThe Speed at which the Earth RevolvesIf this were any slower, thetemperature differencebetween day and night wouldgrow enormously.If it were any faster, thenatmospheric winds wouldreach enormous speeds, andcyclones and storms wouldmake life impossible.
www.knowmuhammad.orgThe Earth’s Magnetic FieldIf this were any morepowerful, very strongelectromagnetic storms wouldarise.If it were any weaker, then theEarth would lose its protectionagainst the harmful particlesgiven off by the Sun andknown as solar winds. Bothsituations would make lifeimpossible.
www.knowmuhammad.orgThe Albedo EffectThe Albedo Effect (Ratio betweenthe amount of light the Earthreflects and the amount of lightthat is absorbed):If this were any greater, an ice-agewould rapidly result.If it were any less, the greenhouseeffect would lead to excessivewarming. The Earth would first beflooded with the melting of theglaciers, and would then burn up.
www.knowmuhammad.orgThe Proportion of Oxygen and Nitrogenin the Atmosphere:If this were any greater, vitalfunctions would be adverselyaccelerated.If it were any less, vital functionswould adversely slow down.
www.knowmuhammad.orgThe Proportion of Carbon Dioxide andWater in the Atmosphere:If this were any greater, theatmosphere would overheat.If it were any less, thetemperature of the atmospherewould fall.
www.knowmuhammad.orgThe Thickness of the Ozone Layer:If this were any greater, theEarth’s temperature would fallenormously.If it were any less, the Earth wouldoverheat and be defenselessagainst the harmful ultravioletrays emitted by the Sun.
www.knowmuhammad.orgThe Earth’s Angle of Tilt:The Earth has a 23 degree angleof inclination to its orbit. It is thisinclination that gives rise to theseasons. If this angle were anygreater or any less than it is now,the temperature differencebetween the seasons would reachextreme dimensions, withunbearably hot summers andbitterly cold winters.
www.knowmuhammad.orgThe Size of the Sun:A smaller star than the Sunwould mean the Earth wouldfreeze and a larger star wouldlead to its burning up.
www.knowmuhammad.orgThe Attraction between the Earth andthe Moon:If this were any greater, thepowerful attraction of theMoon would have extremelyserious effects on atmosphericconditions, the speed at whichthe Earth revolves around itsown axis and on the oceantides.If it were any less, this wouldlead to extreme climatechanges.
