“The Qur’an Leads the Way to Science”

Diamonds from Harun Yahya’s Book;

“The Qur’an Leads the Way to Science”

*********************************************

 

God summons humanity to investigate and reflect upon the heavens, the earth, mountains, stars, plants, seeds, animal, the alternation of the night and the day, the creation of man, the rain and many other created things. Examining these, man comes to recognize the artistry of God’s creation in the world around him, and ultimately, to know our Creator, Who created the entire universe and everything in it from nothing.

*****

As we mentioned above, religion encourages science, and those who use their reason and follow their conscience in the pursuit of scientific research acquire a strong faith because they apprehend God’s signs at close hand.

*****

Those who assume that science must be distinguished from religion certainly fall into great error. First of all, those who do not believe in God cannot experience the spiritual upliftment of faith. The scientific projects they initiate with great zeal soon turn out to be monotonous and unspiring. Their motivation, in such a mindset, becomes solely to reap short-lived worldly profit. Pursuing the fulfillment of worldly desires, such as wealth, rank, reputation, or prestige, they are only committed to conducting research that will directly contribute to such personal benefits.

God has revealed to us important information about these matters in the Qur’an. Those most fundamental of these are as follows:

1)   God created the universe from nothing. Everything is created for a particular purpose. It follows that there is not a chaos of chance happenings in nature or the universe, but a perfect order created with an intelligent design.

2)   The material universe, and predominantly, the earth we live in, is specially designed to allow for human life. There is a certain purpose in the movements of stars and planets, in geographical landmarks, and in the properties of water or the atmosphere, that makes human life possible.

3)   God created all living things. Moreover, these creatures act through the inspiration of God, as quoted in the Qur’an in the example of the honeybees.
