"Man's knowledge of the origin of the universe is considerably limited.
The scientists have proposed hypotheses and theories of evolution that
are centred around one theme: the radiation era the premordial fireball
and the premordial matter and antimatter. The theories state that the
universe consisted mainly of strongly interacting particles. Premordial
matter and antimatter according to Encyclopaedia Britannica, eventually
annihilated each other; and the remaining particles formed the present
universe". The Qur'an presents the development of the universe in
relatively simple terms. Allah says, directing His Messenger Muhammad,
peace be on him, to ask the unbelievers:
"Say: Is it that ye deny Him Who created the earth in two Days?
And do ye join equals with Him?
He is The Lord of (all) The Worlds. He set on the (earth)
Mountains Standing firm, high above it, and bestowed blessings on the
earth, and measured therein its sustenance in four Days, alike for
(all) who ask.
Then He turned to the sky and it had been (as) smoke: He said to
it and to the earth: "come ye together, willingly or unwillingly".
They said: "we do come (together), in willing obedience". 3.

in two Days, and He assigned to each heaven its duty and command. and

Such is the Decree of (Him) The Exalted in Might, Full of
"Do not the Unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were
joined together (as one unit of Creation), before we clove them
We made from water every living thing.
Will they not then believe?"'.
"The concept of rending of one unit into two or more, the
colestial «smoke» as referred to in the above verses are
fact to which corresponds the factual scientific data.
«Smoke», the English physicist and astronomer Sir James
Jeans wrote: we have found that, as Newton first conjectured, a chaotic
mass of gas of approximately uniform density and of very great extent
would be dynamically unstable: nuclei, would tend to Form in it, around
which the whole of matter would ultimately condense". On the basis of
this theory Newton proposed that all celestial objects originated by a
process of fragmentation.
Needless to say the space program helped discover the homogeniety
of the substances of which the moon, the earth and other planets are
formed. «Such state 4. Qur-an41 :9, 10, 11, 12. 5. Qur'an 21: 30.

fourteen centuries ago», Dr. Bucaille concluded, «obviously
do not lend themselves to a human explanation»6. 6. Macropedia.
