The scientific clues
of the Doomsday - From Big-Bang to Big-crunch.
can explain how and why the Doomsday would occur. As the Big-bang theory explains
how the universe came into existence, the Big Crunch theory explains how the universe
will come to an end. Scientists believe from observing the red shift in distinct
galaxies that the universe is currently expanding. According to Einstein theory,
the universe has a finite volume and finite number of hydrogen atoms. At some
time in the future, no one knows when, the expansion of the universe would stop.
The galaxies which are now receding from one another will start to approach towards
each other and finally they will star t colliding with each other. As there are
more than 100 billions of galaxies, billions of collisions will occur one after
the other - that is
how the scientists believe in the occurance of the Doomsday.
The Holy Quran confirms it.All that is there will perish, except the Countenance
of your Lord, Full of Majesty and Bounty and Honor. (55:26-27)
Big Crunch will be like the Big Bang in reverse. At present the universe is expanding,
but it is being observed that the rate of expansion of the universe is gradually
slowing down. This shows that the time of the Doomsday is approaching nearer and
and closer to mankind comes their reckoning, yet they heed not and they run away.
This verse is a dire reminder to all the inhabitants
of the ear th that the Doomsday is not too far but is gradually approaching its
Every event has its appointed times.
The possible scientific explanation of the Doomsday
in the light of the Holy Quran has been described by a renowned Muslim scholar
Professor S. Bashir-ud-Din Mahmood in his monumental book Doomsday and Life after
death. We shall take relevant material from his book.
