The Story of Creation (10) – Atmosphere filtering, Ozone layer, Polar Aurora, Protection from Asteroids in the Holy Quran.


1.    Blindness of Night (Rays Filtering)
2.    Loss of Oxygen in High Altitudes
3.    Ozone Layer
4.    Breathe of Dawn
5.    Atmosphere Reflection
6.    Sky with no holes
7.    Aurora (Polar Lights)
8.    Earth Protection from Asteroids

Before talking about our subject, I was reading the following verse from Quran:

ان في خلق السماوات والارض واختلاف الليل والنهار والفلك التي تجري في البحر بما ينفع الناس وما انزل الله من السماء من ماء فاحيا به الارض بعد موتها وبث فيها من كل دابة وتصريف الرياح والسحاب المسخر بين السماء والارض لايات لقوم يعقلون

Verily! In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of night and day, and the ships which sail through the sea with that which is of use to mankind, and the water (rain) which Allâh sends down from the sky and makes the earth alive therewith after its death, and the moving (living) creatures of all kinds that He has scattered therein, and in the veering of winds and clouds which are held between the sky and the earth, are indeed Ayât (proofs, evidences, signs, etc.) for people of understanding. [2:164]

I noticed that this verse summarized the creation sequence as explained in part (3) in one verse only as following:

  • Creation of Universe (the Heavens and Earth).
  • Alternation of Day and Night, i.e. Earth formation, being sphere and starting its rotation.
  • Ships over the Seas, i.e. the water existed and appeared from Earth into Oceans.
  • Rain, i.e. water starts evaporating, raining, rivers formation.
  • Dispersing of Creatures (Daabah), starting from bacteria, and it’s evolution to other types of animals.
  • Winds and Clouds, means oxygen generation and rising of atmosphere thickness.
In the following sections, we will compare some of ALLAH signs in Quran and compare them with science findings.

(9) - How do Sun, Moon, Earth, Stars, Mountains, Trees, Animals and Human prostrate to God?


1- How does Muslim prostrate to God?
2- Prostration of Earth, Sun, Moon, Stars, and Planets
3- Prostration of Mountains
4- Prostration of Trees
5- Prostration of Animals
6- Prostration of People

In a miraculous verse from the Holy Quran, ALLAH says the following:

الم تر ان الله يسجد له من في السماوات ومن في الارض والشمس والقمر والنجوم والجبال والشجر والدواب وكثير من الناس وكثير حق عليه العذاب ومن يهن الله فما له من مكرم ان الله يفعل ما يشاء  (الحج-18)

See you not that whoever is in the heavens and whoever is on the earth, and the sun, and the moon, and the stars, and the mountains, and the trees, and Ad-Dawâb moving (living creatures, beasts), and many of mankind prostrate themselves to Allah? But there are many (men) on whom the punishment is justified. And whomsoever Allâh disgraces, none can honour him. Verily! Allâh does what He wills. (18) [22:18]
والنجم والشجر يسجدان
The stars and the trees prostrate. 55:6

Let’s see how the stars, trees, mountains and animals prostrate to ALLAH…

The Story of Creation (8) - Sun & Moon Signs in The Holy Quran ….


1.    Moon Origin as Star
2.    Sun as Star & Moon reflects light
3.    Moon & Sun different orbits
4.    Moon following Sun
5.    Moon dryness and motion
6.    Moon & Sun Eclipse, and Moon Miraculous Rotation
7.    Super-moon
8.    Sun slower than Moon and night won’t forerun daylight
9.    Sun being bigger than Moon
10.    End of Sun
11.    Difference between Lunar year and Solar year
12.    The Shadow of Daylight
13.    Infinite day and Infinite night
14.    Sun Flares

The Sun and the moon are the most important planets for our life on Earth, and without of them the life would be impossible on Earth and it would be never been as we know it today. But, did the Almighty God (ALLAH) mention some of their scientific facts in his holy book “The Quran”?
Let’s see…

1.    Moon Origin as Star

Quoted from NASA – Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter

How did the moon form?
We think that the moon and Earth formed at about the same time, back when our whole solar system was formed. Earth was forming from many chunks of rock and icy material. Possibly a big chunk hit the new Earth and knocked loose a big piece, which became the moon.

Does the moon really have volcanoes?

Yes, the moon has some volcanoes. But as far as I know they are all "dead" volcanoes that have not erupted for millions of years. Most of the craters on the moon are from the surface being hit by asteroids and comets billions of years ago. The moon is a very "quiet" place. There is no air or water to erode the surface, and there are no large earthquakes or active volcanoes to change the surface. Only small rocks may still hit the surface. So it has not changed much in billions of years! Probably the biggest changes recently are the footprints from the astronauts that visited the moon about 30 years ago. [1]

The Story of Creation (7) – Oil, Minerals & Stones signs in the Holy Quran ….


1- The Oil
2- Oil’s Locations
3- Iron Strength and Use
4- Iron Atomic Weight & Atomic Number
5- Asteroids Drilling (iron)
6- Bronze Alloy
7- Colors of Earth Products
8- Stones Solidness
9- The Iron Age

1- The Oil:

Quoted from Wikipedia: Combustion

Combustion or burning is the sequence of exothermic chemical reactions between a fuel and an oxidant accompanied by the production of heat and conversion of chemical species. The release of heat can result in the production of light in the form of either glowing or a flame. Fuels of interest often include organic compounds (especially hydrocarbons) in the gas, liquid or solid phase.

In a complete combustion reaction, a compound reacts with an oxidizing element, such as oxygen or fluorine, and the products are compounds of each element in the fuel with the oxidizing element. For example:
CH4 + 2 O2 → CO2 + 2 H2O + energy
CH2S + 6 F2 → CF4 + 2 HF + SF6 [1]
