Life Out of Nothing: Among the Signs of Allah, is His Creation.

“Your god is one God: There is no god but He, the All-Merciful, the Very-Merciful. [163] Surely, in the creation of heavens and earth, and the alternation of night and day, and the ships that sail in the sea, carrying that which benefits men, and in the water Allah sent down from the sky, then revived with it the earth after it was dead, and in every creature He has scattered on it, and it turning of winds, and in the clouds employed to serve between heaven and earth, there are signs for those who have sense.

(The Noble Qur’an. Surah Baqarah, 2:163-164).

Surely, Allah is the one who splits the grain and the date-stone (for sprouting). He brings forth the living from the dead, and He is the One who brings forth the dead from the living [*Note 23]. That is Allah! To where, then, are you being turned away (by your desires)? (He is) the One who causes the dawn to break. He has made the night for rest, and the sun and the moon for reckoning. This is a measure set by the All-Mighty, the All-Knowing. He is the One who made for you the stars, so that you may be guided by them in darkness of the land and the sea. We have elaborated the signs for the people who know.

He is the One who created you from one person, then, you have a place to dwell and a place to sojourn. We have elaborated the signs for the people who understand. He is the One who sent down water from the heavens. Then We brought forth with it vegetation of all kinds. Then from it We brought grains set upon one another. From the palm-trees, from their spathes, come forth the low hanging bunches. (We produce) vineyards and the olive and the pomegranate, either similar or not similar to each other. Look at its fruit when it bears fruit, and at its ripening. Surely, in all this there are signs for the people who believe.

(The Noble Qur’an. Surah Al-An’am, 6:95-99)

[*Note 23 explanation]: He brings forth the living from the dead like a chicken from an egg, and brings forth the dead from the living like an egg from a hen.

The English Translation and the explanation is from Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmani’s “The Meanings of the Noble Qur’an.”

    This is quite good, keep up the awesome shots!

    What is most remarkable is that this is hardly the most remarkable aspect of the adaptivity of life. Extremophilic archaea can live in the frozen antarctic, in pressurized thermal vents, and in sulferic acid.

    Some people, both religious extremists and athiests, believe that science, and especially biology via evolution, are irreconciable and that one or the other is thus false. For myself, the study of the theory of evolution and biology in general is simply the study of God’s genius. No matter how much humanity professes to know, God through nature and creation shall always be the teacher, and we the students.
