1 THE HOLY QUR’AN THE SOLIDITY OF THE ATOM AND ELECTRON ORBITS (Surat an-Naml, 88) BASED ON THE WORKS OF HARUN YAHYAand others PREPARED BYDr F.Dejahang, BSc CEng, BSc (Hons) Construction Mgmt, MSc, MCIOB, .MCMI, PhD
3 (Surat an-Naml, 88)“You will see the mountains you reckoned to be solid going past like clouds –the handwork of Allah Who gives to everything its solidity. He is aware of what you do.” (Surat an-Naml, 88)
4 (Surat an-Naml, 88)کوهها را میبینی، و آنها را ساکن و جامد میپنداری، در حالی که مانند ابر در حرکتند؛ این صنع و آفرینش خداوندی است که همه چیز را متقن آفریده؛ او از کارهایی که شما انجام میدهید مسلّماً آگاه است!
5 (Surat an-Naml, 88) Sahih International And you see the mountains, thinking them rigid, while they will pass as the passing of clouds. [It is] the work of Allah , who perfected all things. Indeed, He is Acquainted with that which you do.Muhsin KhanAnd you will see the mountains and think them solid, but they shall pass away as the passing away of the clouds. The Work of Allah, Who perfected all things, verily! He is Well-Acquainted with what you do.
6 (Surat an-Naml, 88)The above verse may be a reference to the strength of the atom, the building block of all matter, and to the orbit of the electrons in the atom.
7 (Surat an-Naml, 88)Looked at in the context of atoms, Allah’s use of the term “to everything its solidity” can be interpreted as referring to the solidity of the atom, which cannot be broken even if struck with a sledgehammer (Allah knows the truth). That is because objects themselves are not perfectly solid, only the atom is.
8 (Surat an-Naml, 88)1For example, if a vase is shattered, only the atoms that make it up remain solid.2A car may turn into a pile of junk after an accident, or a skyscraper may collapse after an explosion, but the situation remains the same whether it is a delicate flower or a tough piece of metal
9 The atoms in matter do not fall apart or stray off-orbit. (Surat an-Naml, 88)The atoms in matter do not fall apart or stray off-orbit.Therefore, even the most fragile-looking piece of matter is actually very solid in its Creation.The wisdom behind the reference to “everything” in the verse may well lie in the fact that the atom is the basis of all matter.
10 (Surat an-Naml, 88)Very solid structures are even to be found in nuclear bombs, which work by splitting atomic bonds.In nuclear fission, the atomic nucleus is split and it is divided into two smaller atoms.In the nuclear fusion technique, two small atoms are combined together to make one larger atom. Solar energy, for instance, is manufactured in this way, by hydrogen being turned into helium.
11 (Surat an-Naml, 88)As a result, there is a constant cycle from matter to energy and from energy to matter, and there is a general solidity in the universe at the atomic level. The verse may also be indicating the clouds of electrons around atomic nuclei, whose movement is likened to “mountains... going past like clouds.” (Allah knows the truth.)
12 (Surat an-Naml, 88)1The electrons in their orbits in the atoms that make up mountains resemble a cloud in appearance in terms of their constant and rapid motion around the nucleus.2Indeed, the orbiting electrons in the atom are described as an “electron cloud” in the scientific literature.1
13 (Surat an-Naml, 88)3The concept of an electron cloud is used in molecular physics, chemistry and quantum chemistry to describe the way they move in a manner similar to a cloud around the atomic nucleus.24It is impossible to understand the structure of the atom and establish this cloud-like appearance of electrons without such high-tech devices as electron microscopes.
14 (Surat an-Naml, 88)5The fact that the information provided 1400 years ago in the Qur’an regarding sciences requiring advanced technology to be established is always completely accurate is one of the miracles of the Qur’an.6It is also a manifestation of our Lord’s titles of Alim (He Who knows all things), Fatir (the Creator) and Halik (He Who will see and arrange the existence of all things and Who creates accordingly, He Who creates from nothing).
16 The illustration depicts the movement of electrons resembling clouds that constitute matter by joining atoms together, literally like glue.3
17 The rapid movement of electrons around the atom leads to their resembling clouds.
