Prof. Durga Rao is an expert in the field of Marine Geology and was a professor at King Abdul Aziz University in Jeddah. He was asked to comment on the following verse: “Or (the Unbelievers’ state) Is like the depths of darkness In a vast deep ocean, Overwhelmed with billow Topped by billow, Topped by (dark) clouds: Depths of darkness, one Above another: if a man Stretches out his hand, He can hardly see it! For any to whom Allah Giveth not light, there is no light!” [Al-Qur’aan 24:40] Prof. Rao said that scientists have only now been able to confirm, with the help of modern equipment that there is darkness in the depths of the ocean. Humans are unable to dive unaided underwater for more than 20 to 30 meters, and cannot survive in the deep oceanic regions at a depth of more than 200 meters. This verse does not refer to all seas because not every sea can be described as having accumulated darkness layered one over another. It refers especially to a deep sea or deep ocean, as the Qur’aan says, “darkness in a vast deep ocean”.
This layered darkness in a deep ocean is the result of two causes: A light ray is composed of seven colours. These seven colours are Violet, Indigo, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange and Red (VIBGYOR). The light ray undergoes refraction when it hits water. The upper 10 to 15 metres of water absorb the red colour. Therefore if a diver is 25 metres under water and gets wounded, he would not be able to see the red colour of his blood, because the red colour does not reach this depth. Similarly orange rays are absorbed at 30 to 50 metres, yellow at 50 to 100 metres, green at 100 to 200 metres, and finally, blue beyond 200 metres and violet and indigo above 200 metres. Due to successive disappearance of colour, one layer after another, the ocean progressively becomes darker, i.e. darkness takes place in layers of light. Below a depth of 1000 meters there is complete darkness. 10 . The sun’s rays are absorbed by clouds, which in turn scatter light rays thus causing a layer of darkness under the clouds. This is the first layer of darkness. When light rays reach the surface of the ocean they are reflected by the wave surface giving it a shiny appearance. Therefore it is the waves which reflect light and cause darkness. The unreflected light penetrates into the depths of the ocean. Therefore the ocean has two parts. The surface characterized by light and warmth and the depth characterized by darkness. The surface is further separated from the deep part of the ocean by waves. The internal waves cover the deep waters of seas and oceans because the deep waters have a higher density than the waters above them. The darkness begins below the internal waves. Even the fish in the depths of the ocean cannot see; their only source of light is from their own bodies. The Qur’aan rightly mentions: “Darkness in a vast deep ocean overwhelmed with waves topped by waves”. In other words, above these waves there are more types of waves, i.e. those found on the surface of the ocean. The Qur’aanic verse continues, “topped by (dark) clouds; depths of darkness, one above another.” These clouds as explained are barriers one over the other that further cause darkness by absorption of colours at different levels. Prof. Durga Rao concluded by saying, “1400 years ago a normal human being could not explain this phenomenon in so much detail. Thus the information must have come from a supernatural source”.
Consider the following Qur’aanic verse: “Do not the Unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together (as one Unit of Creation), before We clove them asunder? We made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe?” [Al-Qur’aan 21:30] Only after advances have been made in science, do we now know that cytoplasm, the basic substance of the cell is made up of 80% water. Modern research has also revealed that most organisms consist of 50% to 90% water and that every living entity requires water for its existence. Was it possible 14 centuries ago for any human-being to guess that every living being was made of water? Moreover would such a guess be conceivable by a human being in the deserts of Arabia where there has always been scarcity of water? The following verse refers to the creation of animals from water: “And Allah has created Every animal from water.” [Al-Qur’aan 24:45] The following verse refers to the creation of human beings from water: “It is He Who has Created man from water: Then has He established Relationships of lineage And marriage: for thy Lord Has power (over all things).” [Al-Qur’aan 25:54]
Samundar ke gehraiyon mein tareki… Professor Durga Rao behri arxeyat ke maiden Mein bayn-ul-aqwami shohrat rakhte hain – woh shah Abdul axeex University jaddah (Saudi Arabia) mein professor bhi reh chuke hain..
Inhein darja xeyl aayt Qurani par apni ray ke ixhar ke liye kaha gya tha… “”ya(kfar ki halat) masal in andheron ke hai jo nehayt gehre Samundar ki tah mein hon jayse upar tale ki moujo’n ne dhanp rakha ho phir upar se badal chaye huwe hon. Algharx andheryan hain jo upar tale pe darpe hain.. Jab apna hath nikale to use bhi qareeb hai ke na dekh sake aor ( bat ye hai ke) jise Allah Tala hi noon na de uske pass koi roshni nahin hoti AL Quran 24:39”
Professor Rao ne kaha ke science Daan to Hal hi me jadeed aalat ke xarye ye tasdeeq Kar sake hain ke Samundar ki tah mein tareki hai.. Insan Samundar gehraiyon mein ghota-xan hona chaiye to baghyr imdadi aalat ke 20 ta 30 miter se aage nahin jasakta woh 200 miter ki xeyadah gehrai mein ja kr Samundar mein xinda nahin rehsakta..
Is aayt mein tamam Samundaron ka xikr nahin hai kiyun Har Samundar ki gehrai me jama shuda tariki tah ba tah ba tah nahin hai ye sirf is gehre Samundar ke bare mein hai jaysa quran mein farmaya gaya: “” ek waseeh (وسیع) gehre Samundar mein tariki”” ye tah dar tah tariki jo gehre Samundar mein pai jati hai is ke do asbab hain.. Roshni ki ek Kiran mein sat rang hote hain jaysa ke hum qos qxah (قوس قزح) mein dekhte hain..
Ye sath rang ye hain nafshi, Kasni, Nila, sabx, xard, maaltaie, aor surkh.. Roshni ki Kiran jab pani se takrati hai to isme inataaf (ینعطاف) payda hota hai..
Upar ke 10 ta 15 kilometer ke false ka pani surkh rang ko jaxb karleta hai isliye agar ghota khor pani ke andar 25 miter tak pohnch gaya hai aor xakhmi hojata hai to ise Apne khoon ka surkh rang naxar nahin aayga kiyun ke surkh rang itni gehrai mein pohnch hi nahin sakta..
Isi Taraha maaltaie rang ki kirne 30 se 50 miter ke false par pani mein jaxb hojati hain.. Xard 50 ta 100 miter par, sabx 100 se 200 miter tak, aor Nili 200 miter se aage..
Phir banfashi aor kansi rang ki kirno ki Bari aati hai jo isse aage pani mein jaxb hokar ghayb hojati hain…
Yun yake bad degar Rangon ke ghayb hojate ke baad andhera chaa jata hai yani roshni ki lahron mein tariki jagha banaleti hai phir 1000 miter se niche Samundar ke pani mein mukammal tariki hoti hai.. 2Suraj ki kirno ko badal jaxb krlete hain jo jawaban roshni ke kirne bikherte hain Yun badlon ke niche andhera hojata hai..
Ye tariki ki pahli tah hoti hai.. Jab roshni ki kirne Samundar ki satah tak pohnchti hain to Lahron ki satah (سطح) inhein munakas karti hai aor wo chmakne lagti hain..
Chunancha maloom ye huwa ke lahren roshni ko munakes karti hain jisse tatiki payda hoti hai.. Jo roshni munakes nahin hoti woh Samundar ki gehraiyon mein rasta banaleti hai is tarha Samundar ke do hisse hojate hain..
Satah aab jo chmakdar or roushan hone k sath sath garm hoti hai aor gehrai jaha tariki ne dera dal liya ho satah aab Samundar ke gehre hisse se lahron ke xarye maxeed Juda kardi jati hai.. Andruni lahren Samundar ke gehre paniyon ko dhanp leti hain kiyun ke gehre panio mein in se upar ke kam gehre paniyon ki Nisbet kasafat xeyadah hoti hai..
Tariki andruni lahron ke niche se shuru hoti hai.. Is gehre pani mein machliyan bhi nahin dekh sakti…
Inhen jo roshni milti hai woh unke Apne jismo se nikalti hai.. Quran pak is bade bar br mahal (بر محل) aor khubsurat tarike se pesh kiya hai.. ” iski misal aysi hai jayse ek gehre Samundar mein andhere ke upar ek aor mouj chai hui hai uspr ek mouj aor uske upar badal tariki par tariki musallat (مسلط) hai all Quran 40:24).. Doosre lafxon mein in moujo’n ke upar maxeed qismon ke moujen hain.. Yani woh moujen jo Samundar ki satah pr paie jati hai… Qurani aayt aage chal Kar batati hai ke “” iske upar badal, tariki par tariki musallat hai”” Ye badal ek doosre ke upar parde aad ya rukawaten hai jo mukhtalif sathon par rangon ko jaxb Kar ke maxeed tariki payda karti hai..
Professor Durga Rao apni bat ko khtam karte huwe kaha 1400 baras qabal ek aam insani xehan is maxhar (مظہر) qudrat ko is qadar tafseel se Bayan nahin Kar skta tha…
So ye maloomat yaqinan kisi insani dimagh ki ikhtra (اختراع) nahin hoskta balke mafuq al-fitirat (مافوق الفترت) se ai hai”” Professor Rao ka ye Bayan ek video cassette Mein bhi moujood hai jiska anuwan hai “This is the Truth” (yahi such hai) ye cassette Islamic tehqiqi foundation se hasil ki ja skti hai… Quran pak mein Irshad huwa.. “aor wahi hai jisne pani se insan ko payda kiya – phir use nasab wala aor susrali rishto wala krdiya.. Bila shuba aap ka kam Parwardigar Har cheex par qadir hai AL Quran 25:54)..
Kiya aaj se 1438 Sal pahle kisi insan ke liye ye mumkin tha ke woh ye andaxa laga sake ke insan ko pani se payda kiya gaya hai? Maxeed ye ke Arab ke sehraoun mein xindghi guxarne wala koi insan aysa andaxa Kar sakta tha jaha hamesha pani ki qillat rahi hai?
