In the very beginning of Surah Saff, chapter 61 of the Quran, we read: “Whatever is in the heavens and the earth glorifies Allah, He is the Mighty, the Wise.”

There are several other verses of the Quran on this theme that it can be considered almost a Quranic refrain.

Allah is making a very profound claim here that literally every thing that we see around, under the microscope or through the telescope, glorifies Him.

Now, if you resort to reading the commentary or lecture of a given Muslim scholar about such verses, you are going to be short changed, for the theologian has spend his life studying theology and different details of the Shariah and has had very little time to master the scientific beauties of our universe.

You can appreciate the amazing beauties of different life forms or biology through the eyes and camera of David Attenborough’s crew and mind boggling complexities and intricacies of physics and cosmology through the writings and videoes of Paul Davies, Martin Rees and James Al Khalili and many others.

Now, you might say wait a minute many of these are not even theists. That is well and good. That is where I come in and in a few short writings bring the scholarship of ages to the service of One True God and introduce you to sublime Monotheism: A Slight Twist Makes David Attenborough a Great Teacher for God of the Abrahamic Faiths and A challenge for Dawkins: Where did carbon come from?

If you are going to learn your biology and especially evolution from likes of Zakir Naik and Yusuf Estes, may I say respectfully that you will be seriously misinformed: Exposing Creationism of Zakir Naik, Tahir ul Qadari, Yusuf Estes and Harun Yahya.

The last verse of Sura Hashar, chapter 59 of the Quran, states: He is Allah, the Creator, the Maker, the Fashioner. His are the most beautiful names. All that is in the heavens and the earth glorifies Him, and He is the Mighty, the Wise.”

So, to fully appreciate the attributes, the Creator, the Maker, the Fashioner, may I respectfully suggest that you may need to recognize the Muslim Times as a good source and benefit from the following:
