Finale : SCIENTIFIC QURAN; How could we have missed it !!

I have talked about the Quranic verses implicating the genesis of the universe, and if you are one of those Star Trek nut, I'm sure you'd enjoy some of the discoveries regarding our universe, stated in the Quran, of which I'm going to take you through in this posting. I hope your brains have recovered from reading the previous posting.Mine is still sore.

The Black Hole:
Men have always been intrigued by Black Holes, some, any holes. But this Black Hole I'm talking about, is an abyss of a hole, the mother of all holes, click HERE then you can agree with me.

Above: Simulated view of a black hole in front of the Milky Way. The hole has 10 solar masses and is viewed from a distance of 600 km.

By the way, don't bother showing this picture to a Gynaecologist, they'd probably tell you that this hole have got way too many pathological problems on it.

Above: In Al-Waqi'a, Ayah 75 - 76:

" I do swear by the positions of the stars. This is an oath, if you only knew, that is

Mawaaqi'in nujuum, comprises of two words; "mawaaqi" (which according to Hans Wehr's "A Dictionary of Modern Written Arabic"), originated from the word waqa'a that means "to fall down, drop , to tumble" and "nujuum" translates to "stars".

Could God had meant Black Hole when He said that? After all, a black hole was made from huge stars that exploded when it is time for them to do so, (why you think only the Gardenia bread have expiry dates?), the process is named Supernova and its remnants will fall into a mid line due to intense gravitational field of the star hence it will close in on itself , giving rise to an area with a gravitational force stronger than the attraction force of any Hollywood/Bollywood stars - Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Angelina Jolie, Ashwarya Rai, Shah Rukh...ooops..I meant Datuk Shah Rukh Khan put together....basically, a Black Hole is the stars' graveyard.

When God described the Doom's day, or Qiamah, He said in At Takwir, Ayah 2 -6 ;

"When the stars fall, losing their lustre; When the mountains vanish (like a mirage); When the she-camels, ten months with young, are left untended; When the wild beasts are herded together (in human habitations); When the oceans boil over with a swell" , we can understand that when the stars fall, the temperature is not favorable to the making of a Baskin Robbin's Ice Cream. On the contrary, the word "...the oceans boil over with a swell" gives you the idea of how high the temperature is going to be. ..and then...BOOM!! Dooms Day....after all, the earth is a star. Actually, current scientists' belief indicates that black holes not only are places where the stars go to die, but also, it gives out new stars. Wow...a hole-in-one and beyond....

Planetary Nebula
As we've discussed earlier, regarding the stars and what happens when they die. No, they do not become Legends like Elvis Presley, instead, become black holes. But for stars that have less than two fold weight of the sun, they ended up as planetary nebula. They come in many forms, one in a form of rose.

Is it a coincidence or is it serendipity that we bump into this verse from the Quran ;

"Then, when the universe is torn, and turns like a rose-colored paint."
55:37 (Translation by Edip Yuksel).

In fact, there are many translations for this particular verse. Check them out HERE.
Imagine if God describe the whole big bang thingy in the Quran, I think Muhammad would have been burnt alive, even before he had a chance to scream the word "help!!".

For those who have not seen "Roswell" then "Unidentified Flying Object" may sound alien to them. But in Surah Ash-Shura Ayah29, God said,
"Parmi Ses preuves est la création des cieux et de la terre et des êtres vivants qu'Il y a disséminés. Il a en outre le pouvoir de les réunir quand Il voudra."

Of course He did not say it in French. Just checking to see if you're still with me. I repeat the above translation in English,

"And among His Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the living creatures that He has scattered through them: and He has Power to gather them together when He wills."

The word "daabbah" according to Hamka means "creatures that crawl, or walk using the feet". But frankly, what makes us human think that there could be no other lifeforms in the galaxy, just because we have not actually seen one...or so it seems. Just because there is something that cannot be perceived by our 5 senses, (which btw we humans come up with that #5), it doesn't mean that that something does not exist. How arrogant are we to think that we are the only "intelligent" lifeform God had created. Killing each other using God's religion is not exactly intelligent is it?

Of course many of us have watched through the years stories about UFO sightings. Funny though, stories of this kind do not emerge from Malaysia. I thought about it and came up with the reasons why Malaysians do not have any report on UFO sightings; (oh please allow me to digress a little)

1. Because Malaysians hardly spend time outside in their gardens relaxing and gazing the stars. No time because by the time we get through the traffic jam caused mainly by the toll and the confusing signboards that ultimately lead us back to another toll, all we want to do is go home and chill in the house.

2. Even if we do encounter UFOs, we will insist they are ghosts, and we will run to the bomoh for help because the local police is hopeless and will come 2 light years later

3. Air Asia is dominating our air with it's irresistable cheap flights...too many traffic and not condusive for the aliens to float in the busy air traffic.

4. The intelligent lifeforms are intelligent enough to stay away from us Malaysians....

5. All of the above (which is what I personally suspect to be true)

So there you go. Not only I've listed some of the numerous verses in the Quran that hints scientific values, I've also thrown in a list of why Malaysians do not have any UFO sightings, as a sidetrack bonus. In conclusion, there are many verses in the Quran that has a science odour. Alas! Humans are less interested in emphasizing constructive aspect of any book of God, instead, spend all the energy in using them as a tool for self interest and gain. For instance, surah like,

"And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out; for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter; but fight them not at the Sacred Mosque, unless they (first) fight you there; but if they fight you, slay them. Such is the reward of those who suppress faith." (Al Baqarah: 191)
is sometimes misinterpreted and used to justify war in the name of God, yet the fact that this verse is sandwiched by two verses 190 and 192

"Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for Allah loveth not transgressors." (2:190)


"But if they cease, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." (2:192)

Clearly God meant fight in self defense. Nothing said about spreading Islam by means of terror, far less mentioned regarding the death of innocent civilians, especially children. If only the Muslims had spent time in self development and digging mysterious verses in the Quran that may have led to brea through scientific and mathematical discoveries, history of Islam may have painted a less sad picture than what it is today.

I will stop here with my scientific Quran. I may as well write a book should I resume writing. On a personal note, Science and Mathematics have always intrigued me because, deciphering the nature, brings me closer to it's Creator. When I study how the universe runs on such a well kept, well balanced system, in precision, it never fails to leave me awed, followed by an impending ultimate admiration for such brilliance.

"Soon will We show them Our Signs in the (furthest) regions (of the earth), and in their own souls, until it becomes manifest to them that this is the Truth. Is it not enough that thy Lord doth witness all things? "

Excellent piece of work by Pah Nur. I have also written some of my thoughts on Science and Faith, which follows :


I have written following two papers which may lead to the realization for a higher theory of everything:

(i) Gravitation Force is the Ultimate Creator,
(1st Int. Conf. on Revival of Traditional Yoga, Lonavla Yoga Institute, Lonavla, January, 2006)
(ii) In Scientific Terminology, Source of Gravitational Wave is God
(2nd World Congress on Vedic Science, BHU, Varanasi, Feb 2007)
I have presented these two papers at the two different International Conferences. I am now submitting some views for being considered for Unified Field Theory

From Scriptures: (Prem Patra by His Holiness Huzur Maharaj)
The Current which manifested in the beginning of the creation is the Current of Sabda (Sound) and of Chaitanya (Consciousness). From whom that Current issued forth is known as Soami (Supreme Being). This Current, by turning back can merge again in the Holy Feet of Supreme Being. The entire creation manifested from this current and is sustained with its energy and when the Current of the Holy Feet is withdrawn, the creation ceases to exist.This Current of the Holy Feet is the Reservoir of all energy, tastes and pleasures, knowledge, skill, shapes, forces and light etc. etc. and of the entire creation, is also the Creator of all of them.

From Science:
Gravitation Force is the cause of manifestation of the creation (birth of planets, stars), its sustenance and when it is withdrawn towards centre or source the entire creation ceases to exist. Photons have originated from gravitons. In black holes photons merge into gravitons. In Black Holes, Gravitational Force is so high that it does not allow even light to escape. What does it mean then? It simply means that the gravitational force at black-holes attracts light towards it with much greater velocity than the speed of light. In fact, all forces including electromagnetic force, material force (strong and weak nuclear force) all merge into gravitational force in black-holes and becomes one force there and when the creational process starts again from a Black-Hole all the forces appear (manifest) again and descends downwards to create billions of stars, planets, satellite, asteroids and various life forms.

Hence it can be assumed that the Current of Chaitanya (Consciousness) and Gravitational Wave are the two names of the same Supreme Essence (Seed) which has brought forth the entire creation.

All cosmological researches should be conducted keeping in view of the following philosophical facts:
It has been stated in Bible (John I-1) “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God,”
Mohammedans hold that God uttered ‘Kun’ (i.e. ‘Came into being’) and the creation came into being (Holy Quran, Sur. Bakr (II.117).
In Chhandogya Upanishad it is written “Tadaikshat bahu syam prajayeyeti” (VI-2-iii) i.e. “It thought (desired) Would that I were many! Let me procreate myself!” The Aitareya Upanishad says,”Sa ikshat ‘lokannusrija’ iti (I-1-i) i.e. “He bethought himself (desired) – ‘Let me create worlds’, etc. etc.
It is written in Chapter VII of Srimad Bhagavadgita : Sri Bhagwan said, “Arjun, now listen how with the mind attached to Me and practicing Yoga with absolute dependence on Me, you will know Me in entirety and without any shadow of doubt” (1). I shall unfold to you in its entirety this wisdom alongwith the Knowledge of the qualified aspect of God, having known which nothing else remains yet to be known in this world (2). Earth, water, fire, air, ether, mind, reason and also ego; these constitute My nature eightfold divided. This indeed is My lower (material) nature : the other than this, by which the whole universe is sustained, know it to be My higher nature in the form of Jiva, O Arjuna. (4-5). Arjuna, know that all beings have evolved from this twofold Prakriti, and that I am the source of the entire creation, and into Me again it disappears.(6)
The Radhasoami Religion also tells that, the ‘Word’ mentioned above is in fact Current of Sound or Current of Consciousness or Prime Current of Spirituality which was issued forth from its Source, or Creator or God. This Current has later on produced light and other forces. The scientists are discussing these days about dark energy which constitute about 96% of the entire universe which is not known to us. Only 4% part of the universe is known to us by all scientific means. In fact this 96% invisible portion of the universe is the vast expanse of spirituality which can be designated as field of gravitational waves in scientific terms. Visible portion of the universe (4%) consists of consciousness (gravitational force), mental force (electromagnetic waves) and material force (strong and weak nuclear force).
Body = Nuclear Force (weak as well as strong)
Mind = Electromagnetic Force.
Consciousness = Gravitation Force.
According to Radhasoami Religion the whole Universe can be sub-divided into three grand divisions viz.
1. Region of Pure Spirituality
2. Region of Subtle Maya
3. Region of Gross Maya
Nuclear forces dominate Region of Gross Maya (Gross Material Region), Electro-magnetic forces dominate Region of Subtle Maya (Subtle Material Region) and Gravitational Force dominates Pure Spiritual Region.
This is the only Truth which can be verified scientifically and can be termed as ‘higher theory for everything’. This also supports the statement of Sir Sahabji Maharaj that ‘the goal of science – Truth; the goal of philosophy – Ultimate Reality; and the goal of religion – God’ are the three names of same supreme essence.
Many things are common between Current of Consciousness and Gravitational Wave.
1. Current of consciousness can not be seen by any means and gravitational wave can also not be seen.
2. Current of consciousness is the weakest force on earth. Its strength goes on increasing on higher regions. Gravitational force is also very weak on earth and strong on Sun and even more stronger on black holes.
3 Tendency of both current of consciousness and gravitational waves are towards their source or centre.
4. Current of consciousness and gravitational force are both regarded as the creator of all the celestial and terrestrial bodies of the whole universe. They are also sustainer of these and when they turn back towards their source or centre the whole universe will collapse.
Hence it can be assumed that the source of current of consciousness and gravitational wave is the same i.e. God or ultimate creator.
This theory is based on scientific deduction. In scientific terms it can be said that the ‘gravitons’ are the elementaryparticle which was issued forth in the beginning of the creation accompanying with sound ‘Radha’
Many views on the Origin of Universe are available. Most popular view is that universe was born with a big-bang from a highly dense energy point. But I have some different view on it. I think the universe was not born from a concentrated point or ball like structure but it has been evolved from an infinite vast expanse of field of gravity. Philosophically or religiously we may call it field of consciousness or spirituality.
A great flow of current of gravitation force descended down from this source and has created many regions of pure gravitation force below it. This was the creation for quite some time in the first phase of the creational process. In the second phase, with a Big-Bang, when the current of gravitation force further descended down then electromagnetic forces and matter (weak and strong nuclear forces)manifested and the entire universe of the second phase was completed with the admixture of all the forces viz., gravitation force, electromagnetic forces, and matter (weak and strong nuclear forces. The completion of the whole cosmos in two phases was also hinted in one of the speeches of Prof. J.V.Narlikar some years back. When the process of creation of universe reverts back the matter merges into electromagnetic force and then finally electromagnetic forces merge into gravitation force and nothing remains except field of gravity. The cycle of universe completes like this.

Yoga (Application) which was based on the control of the body physically and implied that a perfect control over the body and the senses led to knowledge of the ultimate reality. A detailed anatomical knowledge of the human body was necessary to the advancement of yoga and therefore those practising yoga had to keep in touch with medical knowledge. (Romila Thapar, A History of India, volume one).

I suggest : Mind and brain are two distinct things. Brain is anatomical entity whereas mind is functional entity. Mind can be defined as the function of autonomic nervous system (ANS). It is claimed that mind can be brought under conscious control through the practice of meditation. But how? ANS is largely under hypothalamic control which is situated very close to optic chiasma (sixth chakra or ajna chakra). Protracted practice of concentration to meditate at this region brings functions of ANS say mind under one’s conscious control.

ANS is further divided into parasympathetic nervous system (PSNS) and sympathetic nervous system (SNS). On the basis of these facts I have discovered a mathematical relationship for spiritual quotient (S.Q.). Spiritual Quotient can be expressed mathematically as the ratio of Parasympathetic dominance to Sympathetic dominance. PSNS dominates during meditative calm and SNS dominates during stress. In this formula we assign numerical values to the physiological parameters activated or suppressed during autonomic mobilization and put in the formula to describe the state of mind of an individual and also infer his/her level of consciousness.

Meditation is the art of looking within and science of doing nothing. We don’t use anything in meditation. We just try to concentrate to meditate at some point in human anatomy known as ‘chakra’ in Indian System of Yoga. The current of mind is flowing outward through the senses and unconsciously. The mind comes at rest gradually through regular practice of meditation. Then comes self realization and enlightenment. Protracted practice of meditation under qualified guidance will help to manage all sort of psychological problems.

Emotional Quotient can also be expressed mathematically as the product of I.Q. and Wisdom Factor. E.Q. stands for Emotional Quotient. An intelligent person may not be wise. But a wise man will always be intelligent. An intelligent person having certain level of positive emotions can be said as wise. An intelligent person lacking wisdom will turn autocrat. A wise man will always be a democrat who respects others existence.

Some may raise doubt that how could be the Wisdom quantified? The answer is simple -if Mental Age of I.Q. can be quantified then Wisdom can also be quantified, of course, comparatively with more efforts. Wilhelm Stern had given the formula of I.Q.. It is, Mental Age/ Chronological Age x 100. Spiritual Quotient (S.Q.) leverages both E.Q. and I.Q.

Radha Soami Faith is a branch of Religion of Saints like Kabir, Nanak, Paltu, and others. Soamiji Maharaj is the founder of this Faith. You may call It like New Wine in Old Bottle.

Maslow has given Hierarchy of Needs. At the top of it is need for self-actualization or self-realization.

In our society we should learn To Live and Let Live and help to satisfy others need. When the lower order needs, physiological and sociological both, are satisfied then only a person think to satisfy need for self-realization in true sense. Else he/she may spend all his/her life to satisfy at the most the need for self-expression instead of self-realization.

It is, therefore, the duty of every responsible person of our society to give serious thought over it.

For the satisfaction of need for self-realization i.e. establishment of harmony of individual consciousness with that of universal consciousness we need following three things:

1. Mater or Guru (A Self-Realized Soul)
2. Secret of Levels of Universal Consciousness
3. Method for traversing the path.

Thank you for dropping a comment. I have made my comment on your comment a post!! ( In response to a comment).I wish you Good luck in the effort to proving The Of Everything.

Thank you very much, Pah Nur, responding to my comments with open mindedness and wishing me Good Luck in my efforts to prove The Of Everything. I also appreciate your view to agree to disagree. But where is disagreement? Why we should disagree? Different views are like brainstorming. We should sort out the differences with broad mind and reach some consensus at mutually agreed view. I will respond to your other queries in my later comments. Thank you once again.

a.k.satsangi said...

Pah Nur, you have raised couple of quesions and doubts. All of them are quite genuine. I start with your last question ‘did he mean Ultimate Creator, as in God, or the tool God used to create ? ‘ I must congratulate you for an excellent question indeed, ‘Gravitation Force is the Ultimate Creator’, I wrote this paper in 2006 followed by ‘In Scientific Terminology Source of Gravitational Wave is God’ in 2007. I agree that Ultimate Creator is not God itself. There is some difference, although at very subtle level. God is the Reservoir of whole Cosmos even then God does not involve Himself directly in the Creational Process. God has completed the process of Cosmic Evolution through Prime Spiritual Current which may be considered in scientific terminology as Gravitational Force Current. This is the Original Fundamental Force. All other forces including the other three Fundamental Forces have their origin in Gravitational Force Current, when It descend down in lower spheres of creation these forces appeared. All these forces disappear again in Gravitational Force when they ascend up and become one force known as Quantum Gravity in Modern Science. It is believed that Quantum Gravity dominated during Planck Era. Rest is next.
