The Quran challanges Atheism

By: Magdy Abdelsahfy

Nothing could be so destructive to the human soul as atheism which is a poison that damages the human cells and turns man into an entity walking aimlessly an so susceptible to ruinous concepts and prone to commit suicide when faced with any problem.  

At this age, the young, owing the to open media, are among those who suffer from the atheistic philosophies, these turn their life into absurd life.

Islam is not only a moral code, but also it has a system that refutes the claims of atheism on scientific bases. The very moment prophet Muhammad was sent, he was faced with atheists and idolatrous, he argued with them using  the Holy Quran, the Holy Quran bears evidence to its divine source which can be understood by the different cultures, educations, mentalities and ages. That why many people, despite their callous hearts, accepted it in the time of the prophet and even sacrificed themselves and wealth for spreading it.

The unique  nature  inthis holy book makes it an intimate friend and condoler to its readers, once you read the Holy Quran, you feel as if it was revealed to talk to you alone, blame you alone, reasons with you, convince you, condoles you raising you from the swamps of atheism giving you a state of tranquility that you have never  tasted.

On this unique nature the Holy Quran says:

If you have doubts about what We have sent down to Our servant, produce another sura equal to it, and call your witnesses, besides Allah, if you are telling the truth. (Qur’an, 2:23)

And also it  says:

Do they say, “He has invented it”? Say: “Then produce a sura like it and call on anyone you can besides Allah if you are telling the truth.” (Qur’an, 10:38)

In his book,The Construction of the Bible and the Qur’an, F. F. Arbuthnot makes the following comment about the Qur’an:  

From the literary point of view, the Koran is regarded as a specimen of the purest Arabic, written on half poetry and half prose. It has been said that in some cases grammarians have adopted their rules to agree with certain phrases and expressions used in it, and that though several attempts have been made to produce a work equal to it as far elegant writing is concerned, none has as yet succeeded.

Like I said In our modern time, owing to the lack of experience and the absence of sufficient knowledge, the youth have become susceptible to atheism and they are prone to believe whatever is said especially if we know that there are a lot of reviews on the Holy Book for its conflicting with modern science.  If one is faced with what cast doubts in his heart, he surely resorts to the Holy book in which he believes to find what drives away skepticism.

Contrary to the Holy Book, the Holy Quran presents scientific evidence to the existence of God,  the scientific statements in the Holy Quran are found compatible with science;  there is no single error , no contradiction or disagreement with science in the Holy Quran, these all have been approved by non-Muslim scientists in forums that have been held around the world in Islamic states. You can read about these scientific miracles in this site:

These scientific statements, which have been found in complete agreement with science  have stunned the world scientific pioneers around the world. Professor Keith Moore, one of the world’s prominent scientists of anatomy and  embryology.  University of Toronto, Canada says”

It has been a great pleasure for me to help clarify statements in the Qur’aan  about human development. It is clear to me that these statements must have come to Muhammad from God, or ‘Allah’, because almost all of this knowledge was not discovered until many centuries later. This proves to me that Muhammad must have been a messenger of Allah.”  

Muhammd (SAW) lived the seventh century in the desert long before science discovered these thrilling facts. Moreover, Muhammad was illiterate. It is impossible that such facts were known in the time of Muhammad.

Historical evidences

The Holy Quran presents historical evidence to its divine source; there are references to many of the perished nations in the Holy Quran, it was only when man developed the methods of photographing by satellites that man has become certain of the existence of these perished nations.   

Also the Holy Quran presents logical evidences to its divine source , contrary to the other Holy Books, you can’t find illogical statements either in the Holy Quran or the prophet’s words.

Maurice Bucaille said in his Book:

The Quran, and Modern Science: ‘A totally objective examination of it [the Quran] in the light of modern knowledge, leads us to recognize the agreement between the two, as has been already noted on repeated occasions.

It makes us deem it quite unthinkable for a man of Muhammad’s time to have been the author of such statements, on account of the state of knowledge in his day. Such considerations are part of what gives the Quranic Revelation its unique place, and forces the impartial scientist to admit his inability to provide an explanation which calls solely upon materialistic reasoning.’

Also, prophet Muhammad presented physical miracles that were seen by idolaters and most of them embraced Islam, among  these miracles is the splitting the moon into two halves.
