Everything is a Miracle According to the Holy Quran and Albert Einstein

Epigraph:

He is Allah, the Creator, the Maker, the Fashioner. His are the most beautiful names. All that is in the heavens and the earth glorifies Him, and He is the Mighty, the Wise. (Al Quran 59:24/25)

Albert Einstein, the man of the century for the 20th century, according to the Time magazine has the following quote attributed to him.

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.  Albert Einstein

I will let any true atheist explain the first half of the quote, while I will explain the second half of the quote, which I live by and which I believe, ‘everything is a miracle,’ is not only a quote of Einstein, but a central tenant of the holy Quran and which is repeated often in the scripture, alluding to different things or phenomena with different emphasis on each occasion.

In the epigraph of this article we read, “All that is in the heavens and the earth glorifies Allah;” in other words every thing is a miracle. Stated another way in the holy Quran: “Indeed, in the heavens and the earth are Signs for those who believe.” (Al Quran 45:3)

In Surah Rome we read:

So celebrate God’s glory in the evening, in the morning–praise is due to Him in the heavens and the earth– in the late afternoon, and at midday. He brings the living out of the dead and the dead out of the living. He gives life to the earth after death, and you will be brought out in the same way.  One of His Signs is that He created you from dust and– lo and behold! – you became human and scattered far and wide. Another of His Signs is that He created spouses from among yourselves for you to live with in tranquility: He ordained love and kindness between you. There truly are Signs in this for those who reflect. Another of His Signs is the creation of the heavens and earth, and the diversity of your languages and colors. There truly are Signs in this for those who know. Among His Signs are your sleep, by night and by day, and your seeking His bounty. There truly are Signs in this for those who can hear. Among His Signs, too, are that He shows you the lightning that terrifies and inspires hope; that He sends water down from the sky to restore the earth to life after death. There truly are Signs in this for those who use their reason. Among His Signs, too, is the fact that the heavens and the earth stand firm by His command. (Al Quran 30:17-25)

The very creation of the universe, what the scientists describe as the Big Bang, was a miracle, which in turn set up a chain of events of further miracles and the holy Quran alludes to this in the following verses:

Do not the disbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were a closed-up mass, then We opened them out? And We made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe? And We put firm mountains on the earth, lest it should sway under them, and set broad paths on it, so that they might follow the right direction, and We made the sky a well-secured canopy– yet from its wonders or miracles they turn away. It is He who created night and day, the sun and the moon, each floating in its orbit.  (Al Quran 21:30-33)

Having outlined the miracles or Signs mentioned in the Quran, Today I want to share only one miracle in our world, from a scientific perspective, what has been dubbed as Quantum entanglement, as described by a NOVA documentary:

If we start our spiritual journey from the study of the nature, as is suggested by the holy Quran dozen of times, all the Monotheists, be they Jews, Christians or Muslims of whatever sect, will be drawn together in glorifying and worshiping the Creator, the Maker, the Fashioner; rather than being cleaved apart by details where they differ, in different revelations to the different prophets including the person of Jesus, may peace be on him.

    • In the name of God the Gracious the Merciful.

      The is revealed from God Almighty, the Creator of the heavens and the earth. Many have still not understood what He enjoins in the Holy Qur’an and living in a world of Darkness.

      The “Place of Worship” to God Almighty is nowhere but in the Hearts of Men. The word Men comprises the Males and Females, and not Males alone as wrongly interpreted by the majority.

      He enjoin Men to Celebrate His Praise in the Morning and Evening. Every individual need a personal connection with his Lord.

      God Almighty uses Parables, Words of Wisdom in the Holy Qur’an. He Alone bestows the knowledge on whomsoever He pleases.

      There is no literal “Fight or War” between any of God’s People in the Holy Qur’an. He enjoin every Man to Fight his Bad Deeds, Vices ( these are like the Disbelievers that live in the hearts of Men) to attain Peace.

      Islam is not what the majority proclaim. It is the Peace which a Man attains/needs in his heart when he tries to live a way of life to set himself free while he is living on earth from Bad deeds,Vices. For example: Backbite, Dishonesty, Excessive love for worldly things, Greed, Envy, Love for excessive wealth, Hatred, Malice, other forms of vices.

      Every person can be a believer/disbeliever of his own self. Every man is responsible for how they live their life in this world.

      A Man can believe (be a Mu’minin), only God can make him a Muslim. He needs to yearn for the love of God in his heart and dissociate from vices.

      The need to call on God with sincere heart in every aspect of lives is needed. He is One, and has no partner. He is Muhammad. He brings Men out of Darkness to Light. He put his words in the mouth/hearts of some Men to deliver to those who would believe, understand, use their reason.

      God has the Power to do All things.
