Everything In This Universe Is In Due Measure
Everything in this Universe
is in due proportion and measure. There must be an intelligent creator
as He created such a razor-edged universe
. Discoveries of physics and cosmology in the last 100 years strongly support the existence of God
and the divine creation
of the universe. 14 billion years back, the universe was condensed to less than the size of a golf ball. The mass-energy of the initial universe had to be precise to get galaxies
, planets, and for us to exist. Same is the matter
with other fine-tuning present in Ratio of Electrons and Protons, Ratio of Electromagnetic Force & Gravity, Expansion
Rate of Universe, Mass Density of Universe, and Cosmological Constant.
This is the fact that the Quran told us hundreds of years ago in many verses as mentioned below.
٤٩ إِنَّا كُلَّ شَيْءٍ خَلَقْنَاهُ بِقَدَرٍ
Verily, all things have We created in proportion and measure. Surah Qamar 54:49
٢٧ أَأَنْتُمْ أَشَدُّ خَلْقًا أَمِ السَّمَاءُ ۚ بَنَاهَا
٢٨ رَفَعَ سَمْكَهَا فَسَوَّاهَا
Are you a more difficult creation or is the heaven? Allah constructed it.
He raised its ceiling and proportioned it. Surah Naziat 79:27-28
Example of Precision & Fine Tuning
One example of fine-tuning is the distribution of mass-energy at that time. How finely tuned must this energy density be to get a flat universe? Answer One part in 10 power120. This number is so small that an astrophysicist explains it with this example.
Cover America with coins in a column reaching to the moon then do the same for a billion other continents of the same size. Paint one coin red and put it somewhere in one billion of the piles. Blindfold a friend and ask her to pick the coin.
The odds of her picking it are 1 in 10 power 37.
You can see that it is still far bigger a chance than One part in 10 power120.
Now read the below mentioned verses of Quran and see that how the Quran speaks about a measure, precision and balance in each and everything of this universe.
٣ خَلَقَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ بِالْحَقِّ وَصَوَّرَكُمْ فَأَحْسَنَ صُوَرَكُمْ ۖ وَإِلَيْهِ الْمَصِيرُ
He has created the heavens and the earth in just proportions, and has given you shape, and made your shapes beautiful: and to Him is the final Goal. Surah Taghabun 64:3
٢ الَّذِي لَهُ مُلْكُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَلَمْ يَتَّخِذْ وَلَدًا وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ شَرِيكٌ فِي الْمُلْكِ وَخَلَقَ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ فَقَدَّرَهُ تَقْدِيرً
He to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth: no son has He begotten, nor has He a partner in His dominion: it is He who created all things, and ordered them in due proportions. Surah Furqan 25:2
١٩ وَالْأَرْضَ مَدَدْنَاهَا وَأَلْقَيْنَا فِيهَا رَوَاسِيَ وَأَنْبَتْنَا فِيهَا مِنْ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ مَوْزُونٍ
And the earth We have spread out; set thereon mountains firm and immovable; and produced therein all kinds of things in due balance. Surah Hijr 15:19
٨ اللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ مَا تَحْمِلُ كُلُّ أُنْثَىٰ وَمَا تَغِيضُ الْأَرْحَامُ وَمَا تَزْدَادُ ۖ وَكُلُّ شَيْءٍ عِنْدَهُ بِمِقْدَارٍ
Allah knows what every female carries and what the wombs lose [prematurely] or exceed. And everything with Him is by due measure. Surah Rad 13:8
