Introduction

Qur’an on origin of the universe

The science of modern cosmology, observational and theoretical, clearly indicates that, at one point in time, the whole universe was nothing but a cloud of ‘smoke’, this is what Muhammad claimed of how the origin of the universe was. This is used in defence of Muhamad as he was an illiterate person and especially not a scientist so there was no way he would have known that the origin of the universe was a cloud of smoke. This then proves that he must have been sent the revelations through Allah because there was no way he would have known that.

Middle

The Holy Quran mentioned that there is a barrier between two seas that meet and that they do not transgress. Which is a true statement.

Therefore, he who chooses the path of guidance of his own free will, and fulfills the duties with which he is charged, and refrains from the prohibition, then he becomes the legitimate Muslim.

    Every point could be the middle. So when the universe is expanding it's stretched and therefore the stars move too. How can we see that the stars are moving? To answer this question I'll have to explain something called the Doppler effect. A physician called Doppler invented it in 1842.

Figures like this are difficult enough to grasp when talking about individual stars, but when talking about entire universes they are beyond comprehension.
