How does Islam stand up to Science?

The Holy Qur’an is the revealed word of God. Every word of the Holy Qur’an is the literal word of God without any intervention or corruption made by man. It was revealed 1500 years ago to give the final spiritual, physical and material teachings for the whole of mankind. Since God created the Heavens and the Earth, the law of nature and the law of God cannot contradict each other. Due to this reason, many of the latest scientific discoveries are already mentioned in the Holy Qur’an; thus proving that the Holy Qur’an is the authentic word of God and not the interpretation of Man.

One attack on religion by scientists is the ‘Big Bang Theory’! Ten or twenty billion years ago, something happened – ‘the Big Bang’, the event that began our universe. Why it happened is a great mystery. From a gas, a titanic cosmic explosion happened, the universe began expanding and has never ceased to do so. Now scientists boast that this is a fact, thus trying to prove that God didn’t create the universe. But what the scientists do not say, and in fact cannot say, is what created this explosion? After all, we are not talking about an explosion like an A-bomb. We are not talking about an explosion that could blow up this planet. We are not talking about an explosion that could even blown up the sun. We are talking about an explosion that caused all the stars and planets that were in one mass, to become spread out and to keep on spreading out to this day! What sort of explosion could cause that, the scientists cannot say. But the Holy Qur’an 1500 years ago, not only explained WHAT happened, but also gave the reason WHY!

As the verse below states that it was God that made it happen, He opened up the ‘closed up mass’ and created this Universe – ‘We (God) opened them out’ (The Holy Quran, 21:31).  Therefore the Universe was created for a purpose and not just an accident!
