6.4 DIVISIBILITY OF ATOM IN THE QURAN

4. Divisibility Of Atom

This is the fourth proof that I am providing in my quest of proving that Quran is from God.

Atom. The very word brings nostalgic feelings to any physicist. From almost 2000 years people have been speculating about the Atom and its nature. Even in the 20th century people thought that Atom was not divisible and that there was nothing smaller than that.. But in 1897 Joseph John Thomson (the famous J.J. Thompson) discovered the Electron – A particle that is smaller than the Atom and one that resides within it. By this great discovery, it was proved for good that Atom was indeed divisible and that there were things that were smaller than the Atom.

“J.J. Thompson discovered the electron in 1897 proving that the Atom was divisible” –The Nobel Prize By Burton Feldman, page 144

“…atoms are made up of subatomic particles. Thomson’s experiments discovered the electron, the first of the subatomic particles to be discovered. This showed that atoms are actually divisible,”

http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Atomic_number#History

This fact eluded even great scientists like John Dalton who all thought that Atom was the smallest individual particle. Heck! I remember myself studying that outdated theory at school.

Dalton postulated : -

* Atoms cannot be created, divided into smaller particles, nor destroyed in the chemical process; a chemical reaction simply changes the way atoms are grouped together.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Dalton

So that was the science of the 20th century. Now let‘s see what the science in the Quran has got to say about the divisibility of Atom.

Read these verses:-

“ And thou (Muhammad) art not occupied with any business and thou recitest not a lecture from this (Scripture), and ye ( mankind) perform no act, but We are Witness of you when ye are engaged therein…  And not an atom’s weight in the earth or in the sky escapeth your Lord, nor what is less than that or greater than that, but it is (written) in a clear Book.” Noble Quran 10:61 (Pickthall Translation)

“The Unbelievers say “Never to us will come the hour”: say “Nay! but most surely by my Lord it will come upon you by Him Who knows the unseen from Whom is not hidden the least little atom in the Heavens or on earth: nor is there anything less than that or greater but is in the Record Perspicuous:” Noble Quran 43.3 (Yusuf Ali Translation)

The verses clearly state that there is nothing, just absolutely nothing that is hidden from Allah. All events, deeds and things even if they are smaller than the Atom are recorded by Him. So do you now see how scientific the Quran is? Mentioning “Atom” at that time itself is a wonder. But mentioning about things that are smaller than the “Atom” is nothing short of a miracle- A true scientific miracle that no ordinary human being would ever have known at those times. How then, can we explain the presence of these science stunners except that they were actually from the being – God, that created science and all its laws in the first place?

This was the fourth proof. Wait on for the next one and the next one and the next. Inshallah I will be giving you proofs from almost every facet of science. And oh! The discovery of electron that proved that Atom was divisible, won the Nobel Prize to J.J. Thompson.

  1. Both the translations you cite were published well after John Dalton’s theory of the atom. Translations before Dalton used “ant” or “speck of dust” in place of atom. This is obviously a case of reinterpreting the Quran in light of modern science.

  2. All the matter in the universe is made up of atoms – this is excessive simplification, atoms are extremely tiny that there are more than a 100 billion atoms on a pinhead. and understanding the existence and the concept of an atom was intensely difficult when I was an 8th grader, let alone how anyone could imagine discovering something of this magnitude.
    the same discovery made 1400 years ago is a feat that none can claim.

  3. This is in reply to brother/sister sdfj’s comment : – In reply to your very thoughtful comment I have written a complete new article answering in detail the question of re-interpreting the Quran in the light of modern science that you have raised.

    This is the link http://prophetrejectors.wordpress.com/61-proving-that-quran-is-word-of-god-life-from-water62/reply-to-sdfjs-atom-re-interpreting-the-quran-post/

    I sincerely hope you read the article at least for the handwork that i have put in preparing it. I also appreciate your thinking very much, and i must say that you think in the way i think. Hope you keep up this spirit of enquiry going.

  4. if we all Muslim read this logical book( Holy QURAN ) thorughly and understand it, then all the inventions & discoveries will belongs to Muslims. Basically, if we read this book , we realise that science is nothing but just the explanation of Miracles of HOLY QURAN by ALLAH.
    Hope so brother u will open new horizon not for non-muslim but also for Muslim related to this great logical book ( HOLY QURAN).
    May ALLAH bless u ( Ameen)

  5. Why do you persistantly smear all of Christianity (which I Do NOT belong to myself) with the attitudes of the most conservative and unreformed of Evangelicals?
    Every mainstream authority I have ever heard or heard of refers to the Father, Son and Holy ghost. I won’t into the “logic” of ANY scripture, but, it is NOT “Christian” to put words in a whole religion’s mouth for the stupidity of a tiny fraction of heretics off in one corner of the stage.
    You make a lot out of one verse that as far as I have heard is NOT denied out of hand by Christians, not ignored when judging Mohammed claim to divine sanction.

    Sorry, If Jews are free to accept or not the new Christian faith, why are not Christians free to deny your even newer one? Bogotry is not justified by pointing to someone else, somewhere else and claimng they did something kinda similar so, stop bugging Islam about Muslim sins.
    Oh, and if you really had any respect for Jesus or another religion I would think you would capitalize the names, like Jesus, Moses, Mohammed, You know, a REAL show of respect.
    I fail to see much respect in rewriting another faith’s, oops TWO other faiths’ scriptures with no textual or archeological evidence, and then accusing THEM of changing the word of God!!!

    You said –

    “Why do you persistantly smear all of Christianity (which I Do NOT belong to myself) with the attitudes of the most conservative and unreformed of Evangelicals?”

    Every comment against the christians that i have put here is ONLY A RESPONSE to to them. I challenge you to produce me one incident in this entire blog where in I spoke something against the christians without them provoking first.

    You said -

    “Every mainstream authority I have ever heard or heard of refers to the Father, Son and Holy ghost. I won’t into the “logic” of ANY scripture, but, it is NOT “Christian” to put words in a whole religion’s mouth for the stupidity of a tiny fraction of heretics off in one corner of the stage.”

    You mean to say that only a small fraction of christendom refers to father son and holy ghost concept? are u living in the world of dreams or something. What exactly are the words that i am putting in their mouths?

    You said -

    “You make a lot out of one verse that as far as I have heard is NOT denied out of hand by Christians, not ignored when judging Mohammed claim to divine sanction.Sorry, If Jews are free to accept or not the new Christian faith, why are not Christians free to deny your even newer one?”

    Yeah they are free to deny whatever they want as no one here is sitting on their throats and asking them to belive.

    You said -

    “Bogotry is not justified by pointing to someone else, somewhere else and claimng they did something kinda similar so, stop bugging Islam about Muslim sins.”

    No body needs your phylosophical speech here. You come here – to my blog and put such stupid comment in the middle of a scientific discussion going on here and ask Me – a muslim, to stop bugging muslims? You sure have gone crazy.

    Oh, and if you really had any respect for Jesus or another religion I would think you would capitalize the names, like Jesus, Moses, Mohammed, You know, a REAL show of respect.

    You said -

    “You think capitalizing names would give respect? Ooooo no no – real respect! The part of world in which i am from doesnt belive in such foolish formalities of english as you do.”

    I fail to see much respect in rewriting another faith’s, oops TWO other faiths’ scriptures with no textual or archeological evidence, and then accusing THEM of changing the word of God!!!

    Your foolery is evident here atlast….Every page of this blog is smeared with evidences galore…. scriptural, textual and archeological ..may be you want evidences from outer space – from aliens maybe?

    It seems to me that you are over flowing with foolishness and stupidity and you happen to come across my blog and unfortunately dropped everything here. Please take it back and find some other blogs to drop them by.

    PLANTS OF QURAN (Rs 300/= 9th Ed., 2011),
    & MEDICINAL PLANTS IN PROPHETIC TRADITIONS(Rs 350/+3rd Ed, 2010) – Both With Colour Photographs

    Dear Sir,
    I am happy to inform you that 3rd Edition – 2010 (Price; Rs, 350/=, $10) of Medicinal Plants in the Traditions of Prophet Muhammad (Prophetic Medicine) has been published. Earlier 7th Edition – 2008 (Price Rs.300/=, $10) of Plants of Quran has already been published. Both the Editions (authored by me) have been revised and contain colour Photographs of Quranic and Prophetic Plants. This has been done according to the wishes of several Scientists and Scholars around the World. You must be aware that the Plants of Quran and Sunnah have assumed added importance in view of the UNESCO Project of QURANIC BOTANICAL GARDENS in several areas of Islamic world in general and Arab World in particular. Actions for the establishment of such Gardens in Sharjah and Qatar have already been taken. Recently authorities of Royal Botanic Garden at Kew (UK) have also opened Quranic Garden Section in it’s prestigious premises.
    Recently King of Morocco, H.M. Mohammed IV has very kindly observed,
    “ I deeply appreciate and want you to know how impressed I am by your work on Plants of Quran and Medicinal Plants in the Traditions of Prophet Mohammad. Your keen interest both in the Quranic I’jaazz – the ultimate, unparalleled knowledge conveyed through the Holy Book – and in the lessons drawn from the Traditions of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) has enabled you to make invaluable contributions to Islamic writings” (3 June, 2010).
    Late Maulana Abul Hasan Ali Nadvi, Founder-Member of Rabita Al Alam al Islami, also observed that the “identification of certain plants (In Plants of Quran), particularly with respect of Sidrah and Kafur, unravel several knots and removes many confusions.’ Another Islamic Scholar of repute Dr. M.A. Yamani, Chairman, Iqra International, also declares, “ the book has filled a gap (Quranic Studies) that has been yawning for centuries”

    Review by Sayyid Hamid, Chancellor, Hamdard University, New Delhi. ‘Muslim Societies – Rise & Fall’, consisting of 28 chapters and spread over 208 pages, has not only delineated the Rise and Fall of Muslims ever since Islam’s emergence but it has collected, tabulated and analyzed a wealth of relevant information.

    The change of attitude which the Ummah needs desperately, as pointed out in the Book, does require the unambiguous and almost undivided attention of the Ulema who wield immense influence among the masses.

    Qur’anic Botanical Gardens
    (Approved by UNESCO)
    A proposal to set up Botanical Gardens based on the scientific and aesthetic concepts contained in the Holy Quran has been approved by the Unesco Headquarters. The expert team that authored the proposal consists of Guido Licciardi, Dr. Shaukhat Ali Chaudhary and Dr. Benno Boer (UNESCO Adviser), Dr. Rashid Idriss, Dr. Mohammed Iqtedar Husain Farooqi and Grant Donald. Dr. Farooqi is the author of The Plants of the Quran, and the Medicinal Plants in the Tradition of Prophet Muhammad.
    The garden features will be based on the verses (more than 150) that mention the Gardens of Paradise (Jannat al-Firdaws) in the Holy Quran. The proposed project would help achieve important objectives in the fields of environmental conservation, scientific research, education and recreation, the Unesco said.

  11. To
    The Editor

    Sub:- Islam failing Indian Muslims

    Ref:- (i)- SCI not entitled to proceed without restoring statues-quo-ante of Babri-Mosque.

    (ii)- Illegal appeals of JUH & SWB are anti- Muslim.

    (iii) – NHRC, UPHRC and NCM should be asked to intervene in proposed SCI petition.

    Dear Sir

    Indian media has reported that this week Sunni Wakf Board (SWB) filed an appeal in Supreme Court of India (SCI) against the judgment of – Allahabad High Court of Uttar Pradesh (U.P.) – dividing 2.77 acres of disputed Ram Janmbhoomi – Babri Masjid land in about equal parts between Hindus, Muslims and a Hindu religious sect Nirmohi-Akhara. It is also reported that Jamiat Ulama-i- Hind (JHU) also filed appeal one month back challenging the said judgment of U.P. High Court.

    Any body who does not know any thing (i)- about law or (ii)- about political reality of India where Muslims are relegated to a status of second class citizens or (iii)- about the basic tenets of Islam as propounded in Quran – may think that these JUH & SWB are doing a great service to Indian Muslim & Islam by taking pains by filing and contesting these appeals in SCI. But the fact of the matter is that on the contrary they are harming & betraying the interests of Indian Muslim & Islam through these appeals.

    People who have knowledge of fundamentals of law and especially of criminal law know that SCI (in who’s Observer’s presence Babri Mosque was demolished on December 6, 1992 despite court injunctions and affidavits of governments and parties-to- the- suits to ensure the status-quo of the Babri Mosque) can not proceed in any matter related to Babri Mosque (including in these said appeals) without first restoring the status-quo-ante of Babri Mosque by getting Babri Mosque re-constructed. Because otherwise SCI will be guilty of contempt of court for lowering the authority of court and for interfering with and obstructing the administration of justice and which is a criminal contempt. Also being a gigantic gory matter in which monumental injustice and cruelty have been inflicted on minority community by majority community, the National Human Right Commission (NHRC), the Uttar Pradesh Human Rights Commission (UPHRC) where Babri Mosque is situated and the National Commission for Minorities (NCM) all are under legal obligation to intervene in this proposed SCI petition under section 12 (b) of the Protection of Human Rights Act .

    Therefore before filing said appeals, the JUH & SWB or any other interested / necessary party should have first filed a petition for the restoration of status-quo-ante before proceeding in these appeals by making a prayer that if it is not done then petitioner will be constrained to move a criminal contempt proceeding against the Bench (Presiding Judges) under section 2 (C ) (i) and (iii) read with section 16 of the Contempt of Court Act 1971. Also simultaneously NHRC, UPHRC and NCM should have been asked to intervene in this proposed SCI petition.

    To be fair it is not JUH & SWB but the Islam which has failed Indian Muslims in this matter as is evident from the following:-

    (1)- Ram Janmbhoomi – Babri Masjid dispute is not an ordinary property related civil dispute as is mistaken by JUH & SWB through their reported arguments and pleadings in these appeals in SCI. But it is the cause of the killings, injuries, loss to property of thousands of Muslims since 1989, including in 2002 (where the governments of Gujarat State and Union of India remained passive and complicit spectators with impunity, while thousands of Muslims were being butchered for weeks together).

    (2)- Like Bible of Christianity, the Islam also depends heavily on its religious book Quran and both the religions have followers each over 1.5 billion people all over the world. But what drives the religions of these billions of people is not merely their these and other religious books but also or rather mainly the interpretation of these religious books by their religious leaders (in case of Christianity its Fathers, Bishops, Pastors etc and in case of Islam its Imams, Maulvies, Mullas etc.)

    (3)- It is needless to mention that like Christianity, in Islam also people provide huge assets and funds to religious places and religious leaders for carrying out their religious duties which primarily is to raise and uphold the values, moral and ethical sensitivities & strength of the adherents of their religion.

    (4)- But the Islam (its Imams, Maulvies, Mullas etc.) never tried to religiously educate and inspire the Indian Muslims, as propounded in Quran, to uphold the values, moral and ethical sensitivities & strength in the face of said gross injustice and cruelties perpetrated since 1989 by Hindu fanatics.

    (5)- In Christianity (in contrast to Old Testament where Prophet Moses of Jews preached in a different tone & tenure befitting people who after coming out from Egypt were determined to occupy the promised land of Israel even by killing thousands of existing residents of this promised land and the land falling on the way), the Lord Jesus Christ as per New Testament preached meekness and overlooking of atrocities of temporal authorities in favor of kingdom of God / heaven and which is quite understandable in the face of mighty Roman empire which during that time conquered Israel and started appointing even the priests of the temple of Israel and butchered many Jews including His Guru, John the baptizer.

    (6)- During his stay in England for the study of law, under the influence of and to propitiate the Christian masters of Britain this same doctrine of meekness was more or less practiced by Mahatma Gandhi in India also. Because Hindus who have lost their martial tradition long back could not raise the guns for independence against mighty Britishers. Therefore similarly placed in a helpless situation, Hindus found convenient prophet in Mahatma Gandhi who like Lord Jesus Christ was preaching to offer another cheek if slapped on one cheek (though this can be justified, if at all, in a monarchy but in no way in any democracy).

    (7)- On the contrary in Islam (which is more close to the spirit befitting democracy) Prophet Mohammed never preached such meekness and always expected Muslims to fear only one God Allah and not any temporal authority But the way Islam, its Imams, Maulvies, Mullas etc. have derelicted and failed to inspire the Indian Muslims to effectively oppose the said gross injustice and cruelties of Hindus, is amazing and is a testimony to the fact that these entire parroting of Quran by Indian Muslims during these two decades is a shear wastage of their time, energy and resources.

    (8)- Islam and Indian Muslim have failed to understand one simple fact that because they did not file this petition for the restoration of status-quo-ante of Babri Mosque just after its demolition in 1992 therefore Hindu fanatics got embolden and carried out massacre of thousands of innocent Muslims in Gujarat in 2002 with impunity to state functionaries. And even now if Islam and Indian Muslims do not file said petition in Supreme Court for the restoration of status-quo-ante of Babri Mosque then they have no chance of leading a fearless and respectful life in thoroughly communalized India / Indian State.

    (9)- Therefore if the Imams, Maulvies, Mullas etc. of India are left with any faith in and commitment to Islam then they, without any further delay, should ask the JUH & SWB or any other interested / necessary party to file (i)- a petition in SCI with a prayer that before proceeding in these appeals if status-quo-ante is not restored by re-constructing the Babri Mosque then the petitioner will be constrained to move a criminal contempt proceeding against the Bench under the Contempt of Court Act 1971 and (ii)- petitions in NHRC, UPHRC and NCM to intervene in this proposed Supreme Court petition, in the interest of the human rights of the minorities which thus far have been trampled upon so brazenly and hugely.

    Yours truly
