SCIENCE IS REDISCOVERING THE TRUTHS OF DIVINE RELIGIONS
SCIENCE IS REDISCOVERING THE TRUTHS OF DIVINE RELIGIONS
Dr. Qazi Sk: Abbas Borhany articles always try to provide exhaustive knowledge and are a treat to read. Internet and the mailing lists have evolved as powerful medium of knowledge dissemination, and for a true seeker who is fully focused, it is 21st Century's great blessing, but at the same time one should be cautious and fully aware of the quagmire of information, that may lead one astray. One can feel the thirst of knowledge specially in the youth of our community, the awakening of spirituality, they are seeking answers, their quest is sincere, but they have to tread the right path. From what ever little knowledge I have gained, my advice to them is to be patient, and if your seeking is true, you will surely receive all the answers.
Dr. Borhany has taken pains to explain that only the intellectual meaning of the Qur'an can be conveyed by Rasulluah (S.A.) and his RIGHTFUL decedents, which includes Doat-ul - Mutlaqeen, who are custodians of the I'lm of Wahi. The entire Qur'an is full of Hikmat, and volumes can be written on a single word. The riwayat of Imam Jafar Asadik giving different meaning each day to his shia......... aptly illustrates the point.
It is my Aqa Moula's ehsa'anat and nawajis that I am blessed to receive Haqaiq sabaks and the purpose of my writing this article specially for youngsters is to awaken their interest to make an effort to acquire Fatemi uloom and also to pursue science courses, the new and upcoming ones like Nanotechnology, Biomedicine and other exact scienceswhich I agree needs a lot of effort and focus, but are at the same time will keep you in perpetual awe of the wonders of Allah and his Universe, true Tawheed. As Dr. Borhany writes - 'We should endevor that scientific affirmations go to prove the Haqaiq of Qur'an, which is a miracle that renews itself in a way which is appropriate for each epoch.'
Haqaiq Uloom deals with the essence rather than the meaning, it deals with concepts which can be imparted by personages, who have received raza mubarak from Aqa Moula (TUS) because it is more a soul awakening process, a creative endevour, rather than mere intellectual pursuit. In my case science and philosophy articles on the Net have helped me to a great extent in understanding the essence and concepts of many Haqaiq uloom. But my maxim has always been " I KNOW BUT KNOW NOT" A paradox in itself, but very true for only MY MOULA KNOWS !!! In this way I have been approaching all knowledge dissemination on the Net or contained in the Books that I manage to read.
I will like to share with you my thoughts, the sole purpose is to whet the interest of my young friends in taking up science courses and attending sabak.
Scientists are coming round to the point of view that yes religion and science can be reconciled, and many pioneering scientific works are being carried out. Scientific materialism is now mellowing and trying to grapple the puzzles of spiritualism domain, trying to understand it, there is positive shift in the minds of scientists. I feel this is the most right time for our youngsters to take interest in Science, as we have also the true knowledge of the Den, and I dream of a day in near future, when mumineen scientists will bring back the glory of the Glorious Fatemi Era of Misr. Enligtented individuals are working on HQR - Holistic quantum Relativity Project (HQR) many interesting developments are happening around the world
The intutive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and forgotten the precious gift.
Albert Einstein : My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit, who reveals himself, in the slight details we are able to perceive with the frail and feeble mind.
Let me share with my young friends what I have learnt from serfing the Net and which has made me understand the basic truths and concept to a certain extent. (The maxim always applies : I KNOW BUT KNOW NOT - MY MOULA KNOWS )
From Plato's famous doctrine of Ideas I fathom that MAN is more permanent than an individual. I can make a circle with a pencil and my eraser can remove it, but the conception of the Circle goes on for ever.
The Philosophy of Aristotle thought me that everything in the world moves naturally to a specific fulfillment. Of the various causes that which determine an event, the final cause, which determines the purpose is the most decisive and important. (Why are we born - what is the final cause etc: are some of the questions to be pondered on)
Spinoza believed that only knowledge , is power and freedom, and permanent happiness is the pursuit of knowledge and the joy of understanding. How many of us believe in this in this 21st Century.
A marriage of conscientious scientists, as well as true spiritual leaders will be a perfect match to understand the beauty, the glory and the essence of our universe.
Try to study and observe how a just born caterpillar make its own cocoon. The silkworm lays 450 -500 eggs at one time. How do they protect it ? So interesting, try to understand the Miracles in Nature. Seemly AWESOME. Log on to www.harunyahya.com and read a well researched scientific article ' The Qur'an on Human Embryonic Development" There are many other articles on Science Faith and Life.
Stephen C. Meyer, a philosopher of science from the Cambridge University and who is critical of the theory of evolution as well as materialism, says in an interview:
One thing I do in classes to get this idea across the students is that I hold up two computer disks. One is loaded with software, the other one is blank. And I ask, "What is the difference in mass between these two computer disks as a result of the difference in the information content that they possess"? And of course the answer is zero, none, there is no difference as a result of the information. That is because information is a massless quantity. Information is not a material entity.
Then how can any materialistic explanation explain its origin? How can any material cause explain its origin?... This creates a fundamental challenge to the materialistic evolutionary scenarios. Information is not matter, although it is imprinted on matter. It comes from elsewhere, from an intelligence .........
Thank You Proffesor, you have explained a Haqaiq concept well.
According to Schroeder, the scientific results of our age lead science and theology to meet at a common truth. This is the truth of Creation. Science is now re-discovering this truth that divine religions have actually taught to humanity for millennia. The materialistic mirage has now vaporized, and scientists are beginning to see the 'light' Very very exciting times, for one who wishes to learn and embark on the journey of Tawheed.
The Human Genome Project - 34,000 genes constituting merely 3%of our genome are responsible for producing protein, The rest of the genome was, till now, considered to be junk, and supposed to produce around half a million varieties of RNA of unknown functions. From this junk yard, two scientists in the US have managed to unearth the antidote of Cancer. My young friends, the moral of the story is, take a plunge, keep trying, one day our community may be having not one but several Noble Laureates. The community is also duty bound to provide a platform and financial support, for such a big dream to be realized. The Community has the resources, the Will and right direction is required.
Now I take leave of you with a real scorcher - if this does not excite and motivate you my young friends, my efforts are in vain. However, I will have the satisfaction of atleast making an honest attempt. Do take out some of your valuable time to share your own thoughts on the subject.
Professor Alan Guth - the Victor Weiskopfs proffesor of physics at MIT - Massachuseets, path breaking 'inflation' theory has created a lot of heat and excitement in the scientific community, after scientific data gleaned from BOOMERANG and
MAMMA experiments conclusively proved his concepts.
According to the theory propounded on the origin of universe by Prof: Guth in 100 billion, trillion trillionth second, the universe underwent a period of rapid expansion doubling in size every - (hold your breath every body)
0.000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,1 second - the process eventually expanded the cosmos
(now get ready again )
Before 'inflation' began, the region destined to become universe was more than a billion times smaller than the size of a single proton.
The discovery of information in the origin of both the universe and life itself is what makes this concept so important in the modern world. Scientists today are realizing that the universe is formed by "matter, energy and information," and this is replacing the materialistic philosophy of the nineteenth century that defined the universe as being made up entirely of "matter and energy."
There is still a long way to go friends, but the journey surely seems very exciting, so do not waste time, embark on the journey of Tawheed, take raza and join sabak in larger numbers, pursue science studies and become ENLIGHTENED and earn 'khusi' of our beloved Aqa Moula (TUS)
May Allah grant our beloved Aqa Moula (TUS) sehato-a'afiyat-ta-kiyamat. Ameen.
Abde Syedna (TUS)
