Hot Smoke: It’s a Miracle

Scientists today are able to observe the formation of stars from a hot gas cloud. Formation from a warm mass of gas also applies to the creation of the universe. The creation of the universe as described in the Qur'an confirms this scientific discovery:

He placed firmly embedded mountains on it, towering over it, and blessed it and measured out its nourishment in it, laid out for those who seek it-all in four days. Then He turned to heaven when it was smoke and said to it and to the Earth, ‘Come willingly or unwillingly.’ They both said, ‘We come willingly.’ (41:10-1)

The word ‘dukhaan’’ for ‘smoke’’ describes the matter before the universe took its shape-the hot, cosmic smoke present during the creation of the universe, as now acknowledged by scientists. Here, the Qur'an uses the most appropriate Arabic word for describing the appearance of this phase of the universe. Only in the 20th century have scientists discovered that the universe emerged from a hot gas in the form of smoke.
