The pursuit of knowledge is part of the Islamic religion. While in medieval Europe, the Christian church suppressed any discovery and new ideas, in the Islamic world the development of science was gaining new momentum: mathematics, astronomy, geography, medicine — research by Muslim scholars in these areas shocked the whole world. The Quran, sent down more than 14 centuries ago, is full of facts, confirmed by science today. We will mention some of Creation Of First Man And Present-Day Science in Quran. The Quran speaks to believers:
“… they contemplate the creation of the heavens and the earth” (Quran 7: 191)
The Lord gives us food for thought saying:
“I will make man out of clay …” (Quran 38:71)
And indeed many of the chemical elements present in the composition of the earth, is in the human body.
A thin layer of dark, fertile soil in which the roots of plants extend.
It is here, in the thin life layer, that microorganisms process mineral substances (which form the basis of the upper layer of the earth) to make them available to the myriad life forms found everywhere.
Minerals – inorganic elements originating from the earth – are not produced by the human body. They play an important role in various processes occurring in the body and are necessary to maintain life and optimal health, and therefore are essential nutrients. Minerals cannot be obtained under laboratory conditions or manufactured in any other way.
The cells of our body are 65-90% water. Therefore, water, or H2O, forms the basis of the human body. Behind her is oxygen. Carbon — the basic unit of an organic molecule — follows oxygen. 99% of body weight forms only six elements: oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium and phosphorus.
The human body contains a small amount of all the minerals on earth, including sulfur, potassium, zinc, copper, iron, aluminum, molybdenum, chromium, platinum, silicon, selenium, fluorine, chlorine, iodine, manganese, cobalt, lithium, strontium, lead, vanadium, arsenic, bromine and more. Without these minerals, there is no benefit from vitamins or it is insignificant. Minerals act as catalysts for the thousands of necessary enzymatic reactions in the body. Trace elements play a key role in the formation of a healthy body. It is known that iodine deficiency causes thyroid disease, and cobalt deficiency will leave us without vitamin. B12, therefore, the synthesis of red blood cells will become impossible.
Another verse that prompts reflection:
“He taught Adam all kinds of names” (Quran 2:31)
So Adam recognized the names of everything. He was granted freedom of choice and the ability to reflect. He
learned to classify things and understand their usefulness. Adam mastered the language skills. The Lord taught him to think, apply knowledge in life, solve problems, make plans, make decisions, achieve goals. We, the children of Adam, have inherited these skills in order to live on earth and worship the Lord in the best possible way.
Today, linguists have more than 3,000 languages in the world, each one different from the rest. Speakers in one language may not understand speakers in another. However, fundamentally, languages are so similar that one can speak about one “universal language.”
Language is a definite form of communication that includes the study of a set of rules in order to create and combine symbols (words and gestures) to form an infinite number of meaningful sentences. Two simple components make up a language – these are words and grammatical rules.
A word is an arbitrary combination of a word (or symbol) with a meaning. For example, take the words “cat.” It does not sound, does not look and does not feel like a cat, however, having heard the word “cat”, each of us will introduce the same animal. This combination is in our memory since childhood. A grammar is a group of rules for forming phrases and sentences from words. This may seem strange, but all the existing 3000 languages have common language rules.
The first rule is phonology – the formation of sounds. The basic unit of phonology is the phoneme. To form a word, we combine phonemes using the second rule, morphology, and we get meaningful combinations of sounds and words. Morpheme is the smallest linguistic unit with meaning. The next, third rule – syntax – allows you to combine words into meaningful sentences. And, finally, semantics is the specific meaning of words and phrases in different sentences and contexts.
All the children of Adam, regardless of the language in which they communicate, overcome the same four levels of language. The well-known linguist Noam Chomsky says that all languages have common universal rules, and children inherit a program stored in the psyche in order to understand them.
And the third ayat:
“O people! Fear your Lord, who created you from one person, made a couple of him and created many men and women … ”(Quran 4: 1)
The theory that all mtDNA cell lines (Africa, Asia, Europe and America) can have one origin is called the theory of “Mitochondrial Eve“. The theory says: “a certain part of the genetic heritage of every person on earth goes back to one woman.” According to advanced research and the opinion of leading scientists, this can be ascertained with the help of a unique particle of a human structure – mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). The mitochondral Eve mtDNA is transmitted from mother to daughter (men can be carriers, but cannot transmit) and exists in every person inhabiting our planet. The theory is also known as the “Eve theory” because mtDNA is transmitted through X chromosomes. Scientists are also exploring the DNA of the Y chromosomes (possibly in the future, “Adam’s theory), which is transmitted only from father to son and does not combine with the mother’s genes.
Of all the miracles created by Allah the Most High, we considered only three. The whole universe created by God is subject to His laws. Therefore, Muslims must seek knowledge, explore the Universe and find signs of the Lord in His creations.
