Question text Is there any relationship between the theory of Big bang and Surah al-Anbiya verse 30. Meanwhile in the English commentary of the holy Quran by Mir Ahmed Ali with some special notes from Agha Pooya Yazdi page 1008 to 1009, a hadith is attributed to holy Imam Baqir (a.s) which seems contrary to d Big Bang. Please elaborate.
categorization: Qur’an and Knowledge
Answer
The Big Bang theory is just a theory which can be right and can be wrong. We do not say that it is definitely right or definitely wrong, because scientific research is always progressing and it might bring more theories. The narration from Imam Mohammad Al-Baqir (AS) in Tafseer Noor Al Thaqalain says that the sky was not raining at all, and Allah (SWT) opened the sky to rain, and the earth was not having plants at all, and Allah (SWT) opened the earth to plants. Wassalam. Mohammad al-Musawi
