I went to Pustaka Sri Intan to buy some stuffs for my sister. Then as usual I went to non-fiction English books. I love to see all kind of books as I always help myself to MPH to feel the passion , he3. Then, I read one by one the synopsis of some of the books. Suddenly, one book caught my attraction namely The History of God. Oh my god, it seems so controversial issue right? I didn't care how much the books digress from Islam's wants as Saidina Umar had said " Islam will disappear from one muslim if he doesn't know the truth of jahiliyah" I believe that word and that's why I do love to read some western books.. I read the summary of the book and it stated "the history of god - three big world religion : Islam, Judaism, Christianity"..
I feel it is the best way for me to know their understanding about muslims nowadays.. And it has to be that, the price didn't allow me to have the book at once.. then I went home and tried to search about her in internet.. I was so shock that she's not only writing such book but more than that.. she wrote a book entitled , ISLAM.. and that's was freaking amazing !! I watched her video in Youtube and she really wanted to fight about the issue of compassion, sharing, caring and other values that were emphasized by Islam thousand years ago.. I feel that she got the idea of what Islam's going to reveal to the world but what a pity that she doesn't get the guidance(hidayah) from god.. This ex-Jews follower has received an award,the Freedom of worship by the Roosevelt Institute and was called to give a talk by the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore. She also was one of the three winner of TED's conference.. She will open new dimension of thinking if she got the guidance from God.... "innaka tahdi man ahbabta walakinallah yahdi man yasyaa'"
«"This is no less than a reminder to (all) the worlds. And you shall certainly know the truth of it (all) after a while."» (Quraan 38:87-88).
Thus, the Quraan is a reminder for all of mankind until the Last Hour. It contains information that man discovers in due time. Because this Quraan was revealed from Allah’s knowledge and every single verse in it was revealed with Allahs knowledge, as He Himself said:
Professor Armstrong works at NASA, otherwise known as the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, where he is a well-known scientist there. We met with him and asked a number of questions about Quraanic verses dealing with the expertise in Astronomy. We asked him about iron and how it was formed. He explained how all the elements in the earth were formed. He stated that the scientists have come only recently to discover the relevant facts about that formation process. He said that the energy of the early solar system was not sufficient to produce elemental iron.
In calculating the energy required to form one atom of iron, it was found to be about four times as much as the energy of the entire solar system. In other words, the entire energy of the earth or the moon or the planet Mars or any other planet is not sufficient to form one new atom of iron, even the energy of the entire solar system is not sufficient for that. That is why Professor Armstrong said that the scientists believe that iron is an extraterrestrial that was sent to earth and not formed therein.
We read to him the Quraanic verse saying: «"And we sent down Iron, in which is Great might, as well as many benefits for mankind"» (Quraan 57-25).
Then we asked him about the sky and whether it had any gaps or rifts in it. He disproved this and replied that what we are talking about is a branch of Astronomy called the "Integrated Cosmos" which we scientists have only come to know recently. For example, if you have a body in outer space which travels a certain distance in any direction and then travel the same distance in a different direction, you will find that the mass weight is the same in all directions. Because this body has its own equilibrium, the pressures from all directions are the same. Without this equilibrium, the whole universe would collapse. I recalled Allah’s verse in the Quraan: «"Do they not look at the sky above them? How we have made it and adorned it, and there are no flaws in it?"» (Quraan 50:6).
Then we talked to Professor Armstrong about the attempts of scientists to reach the edge of the universe, and we asked him whether they were successful in this. He replied that they are fighting an uphill battle to the edge of the universe, we construct more powerful equipment to observe the universe only to discover that the new stars we see are still within our galaxy and that we have not yet reached the edge of the universe. He is aware of the Quraanic verse which says: «"And we adorned the lowest heaven with lamps and we made such (lamps) missiles to drive away Satans."» (Quraan 67:5).
Indeed, all these stars are adornments for the lowest heaven. He says that scientists have not reached the end of the universe. Professor Armstrong added that because of this, they are thinking of stationing more telescopes in outer space so that their observations will not be obstructed by dust and other atmospheric impediments. Vision telescopes using light are unable to travel long distances, so we replaced them with radio operated ones enabling us to see further, but we nevertheless are still within the boundaries. I mentioned to him this verse: «"So turn thy vision again: Do you see any flaw? Again turn your vision a second time: (your) vision will come back to you dull and discomfited, in a state worn out"» (Quraan 67:3-4).
Each time Professor Armstrong told us some scientific fact, we mentioned to him the relevant verse which he agreed with. Then we said to him: You have seen and discovered for your self the true nature of modern Astronomy by means of modern equipment, rockets, and space ships, developed by man. You have also seen how the same facts were mentioned by the Quraan 14 centuries ago, so what is your opinion about these?
He replied: That is a difficult question which I have been thinking about since our discussions here. I am impressed that how remarkably some of the ancient writings seem to correspond to modern and recent astronomy.
I was shocked to what my niece, YAYA had said this morning bout that incident... Pergh!! It's the same like in bukit antarabangsa, highland tower and much more.. all related to the same reasons : structure, land, water and many more.. What if we swallow on our pride and just say it's human beings' mistakes,in short it is ours.. Many of us blame the structure of this world, the weaknesses of new engineers, the cheap materials and so on.. but they dont look this matter into the rememberance from god.. The almighty one wants to teach us something, the thing that we cannot see and think with our naked eyes and mind as well.. There's reason for the thing He did.. on the whole let's us altogether take this rememberance from God to be assimilate in our life.. Life goes meaningless without God's guidance...
