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.

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.
