God in a flash - The Higgs Boson particle.

URL: http://worldmuslimcongress.blogspot.com/2012/07/god-in-flash-higgs-boson-particle.html

This is a great discovery; it helps us understand the wisdom of God even more. First of all, we are proud of the contributions of a Muslim scientist Dr. Abdus Salam in this discovery, may God bless his soul.  Indeed, we are proud of every Scientist, Doctor, Engineer, Astronomer and others who have contributed towards the well being of humanity, the works is as divine as the work of theologians.

Science does not contradict religion, but simply seeks to understand the logic behind God’s wisdom. God wants us to seek knowledge, and declares that the best among us are the ones who knows. Knowledge leads to understanding and understanding to appreciation of the creation and the creator.   

God is not a being, not a thing, not a male or a female, per Islam it is the noor, a system, and the closest word  to describe is Life energy, however, no word can fully describe the creator. The God particle is just a name to an element that the creator embedded in every life form.

There is a formula out there that replicates the regeneration process in all species, which Darwin thought was an anomaly that became an established pattern. So this creator God sprinkled this particle which has carried the world forward, this God particle has helped in ensuring that the species continue in each format they have evolved.

It is fascinating; I hope to learn more about it.

Someday, we may genuinely earn the title of Ashraful Mukhlookhat;  most informed beings, most self sustainable beings… God wants us to learn more, … the more we know the closer we get to the Creator. We will find in tune with the creation and the creator.

My mother use to recite a poetry which ran something like this, isn’t it amazing the things that were meaningless to us once, become meaningful as we grow? I thank my mother for showering that wisdom on me.

Banday ko khuda mat kaho, banda khuda nahin
Lekin phir bhi, khuda say juda banda nahin.

Don’t call the created (humans) the creator, the created is not the creator
However, the creator and created are not different entities.

Some Muslims will not agree with this, however when God talks about being closer to us than our jugular vein, and then, when someone achieves closeness to God, to be God like, he or she achieves the Taqwa.

The faith of Scientist and Doctors could be stronger than the theologians; one sees God’s work every day, whereas the other believes. Taqwa meter will perhaps give more points to the ones who know and who learn.

Thank Hasni Essa for posting sharing the following article and Muhammad Irtaza for adding the verses from Quran.  I was intrigued by the source of his translation about Concave Mirror, so I looked up; it’s a niche or mehrab in Asad’s translation.

24:35 (Asad) God is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The parable of His light is, as it were, [50] that of a niche containing a lamp; the lamp is [enclosed] in glass, the glass [shining] like a radiant star: [51][a lamp] lit from a blessed tree - an olive-tree that is neither of the east nor of the west [52] the oil whereof [is so bright that it] would well-nigh give light [of itself] even though fire had not touched it: light upon light![53] God guides unto His light him that wills [to be guided]; [54] and [to this end] God propounds parables unto men, since God [alone] has full knowledge of all things. [55]

 Thank you.

Salamun Alaykum.

God is the light of the heavens and the earth.

[24:35] GOD is the light of the heavens and the earth. The allegory of His light is that of a concave mirror behind a lamp that is placed inside a glass container. The glass container is like a bright, pearl-like star. The fuel thereof is supplied from a blessed oil-producing tree, that is neither eastern, nor western. Its oil is almost self-radiating; needs no fire to ignite it. Light upon light. GOD guides to His light whoever wills (to be guided). GOD thus cites the parables for the people. GOD is fully aware of all things.

The light of God is so powerful that a flash of it caused a mountain to crumble.  The light of God cannot be seen with our eyes.  

[7:143] When Moses came at our appointed time, and his Lord spoke with him, he said, "My Lord, let me look and see You." He said, "You cannot see Me. Look at that mountain; if it stays in its place, then you can see Me." Then, his Lord manifested Himself to the mountain, and this caused it to crumble. Moses fell unconscious. When he came to, he said, "Be You glorified. I repent to You, and I am the most convinced believer." 

God is not physically  present in our material world.  The so-called "God particle"  is not part of God.  It is created by God.  Our limited knowledge cannot grasp the greatness of God.

[39:67] They can never fathom the greatness of GOD. The whole earth is within His fist on the Day of Resurrection. In fact, the universes are folded within His right hand. Be He glorified; He is much too high above needing any partners.

Thank you and may God guide me,

Muhammed Irtaza

First, it was Charles Darwin whose Origin of
Species took us back 10,000 years.Now this
"God particle" theory takes us back 14 billion
years when universe supposedly was created.

Hasni Essa


Seeing God in a flash

The "God particle." Atom smashers.The Big Bang.

  Kim Kardashian,eat your heart out.Today,the water
cooler chatter is all about theoretical and particle
physicists,of all unlikely pop icons.And Peter Higgs,
an 83-year-old Scots scientist,in particular. 

  After much feverish speculation physicists at the
European Organization for Nuclear Research have lit
up the world of science by chasing down one of the
universe's most elusive building blocks, the "Higgs
boson" that holds a key to creation as we know it.
Dubbed 'the God particle, " (as well as the goddamn
particle" because it was so hard to find), it has long
been a Holy Grail to what's known as the Standard
Model of physics, our best guess at how the universe
works.Until now it has been a theoretical particle.
No longer.

  The organiztion's director Rolf Heuer confirmed
Wednesday that "we have observed a new particle that
is consistent with a "Higgs boson." That's science-speak
for  "Break out the bubbly, we have found the little
bugger" after smashing trillions of hapless protons
together in the Large Hadron Collider,and scouring the
wreakage for bosons.

  Did the researchers witness God's handiwork in a
"Higgs like" particle's flash ? Who can say for sure ?
They still have worlsd of dark matter, dark energy,
supersymmetry,antimatter and gravity to explore.
The Great Architect  may yet have a few surprises up
her sleeve.

   But, by replicating  the first moment of the Big Bang
some 14 billion years ago, scientists believe they have
finally created,,identified and tracked a Higgs boson,
first postulated by Higgs and others nearly a half
century ago to explain how matter came to have mass.

   Once the Big Bang occured,so the theory went,it
quickly produced our universe - full of particles that had
no mass,and radiation energy.A short trillionth of a second
later a "Higgs field" appeared,with the Higgs bason, its
own quantum particle.The field functioned like a cosmic
field of snow. .When other particles such as quarks and
electrons passed through it they gained mass.They slowed
down and eventually formed the atoms that comprise the
world that is us.The Higgs bason was the smallest and
most elusive particle in the mix.

   It has taken a lifetime to find something that looks
for all the world like the Higgs bason,but we'are closer
now to gasping how the Big Bang's big mess became
the whirl of galaxies that we see today.Whole new vistas
of science beckon.As Sean Carroll,a California Institute
of Technology physicist puts it,"the fun has just begun."

Planned Muslim Response to Qur'an Burning by Pastor Jones on September 11 in Mulberry, Florida

August 19, 2013| Dallas, Texas

We as Muslims plan to respond to pastor Terry Jones' planned burning of 3000 copies of Quran on September 11, 2013 in positive terms.

Our response - we will reclaim the standard of behavior practiced by the Prophet concerning “scurrilous and hostile criticism of the Qur’an” (Muhammad Asad Translation Note 31, verse 41:34). It was "To overcome evil with good is good, and to resist evil by evil is evil." It is also strongly enjoined in the Qur’an in the same verse 41:34, “Good and evil deeds are not equal. Repel evil with what is better; then you will see that one who was once your enemy has become your dearest friend.”

God willing Muslims will follow the divine guidance and pray for the restoration of Goodwill, and on that day many Muslim organizations will go on a “blood drive” to save lives and serve humanity with kindness.

We invite fellow Americans of all faiths, races, and ethnicities to join us to rededicate the pledge, “One nation under God”, and to build a cohesive America where no American has to live in apprehension, discomfort or fear of fellow Americans. This event is a substitute for our 10th Annual Unity Day Celebration (www.UnitydayUSA.com) held in Dallas, but now it will be at Mulberry, Florida.

Unwittingly Pastor Jones has done us a favor by invigorating us by his decision to burn nearly 3000 copies Quran on September 11, 2013. Obviously he is not satisfied by the notoriety he garnered by burning one Qur'an last year.

As Muslims and citizens we honor the free speech guaranteed in our constitution. We have no intentions to criticize, condemn or oppose Pastor Terry Jones' freedom of expression. Instead, we will be donating blood and praying for goodness to permeate in our society.

We plan to follow Jesus Christ (pbuh), a revered prophet in Islam as well as Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) – that of mitigating the conflicts and nurturing good will for the common good of the society.

We hope, this event and the message will remind Muslims elsewhere in the world as well, that violence is not the way. Muslims, who react violently to senseless provocation, should realize that, violence causes more violence, and besmirches the name of the religion that we hold so dear. We believe that Prophet Muhammad was a mercy to the mankind, and we ought to practice what we believe and preach. We must not insult Islam by the negative reactions of a few.

We can only hope it will bring about a change in the attitude of the followers of Pastor Jones, and in the behavior of those Muslims who reacted violently the last time Pastor sought notoriety – We hope this small step towards a bridge to peaceful coexistence would propel us towards building a cohesive society.

Like most Americans a majority of Muslims quietly go about their own business, but it is time to speak up and take positive action instead of negative reaction. May this message of peace and goodwill reverberate and reach many shores.

Lastly, we appreciate the Citizens of Mulberry, Florida, Honorable Mayor George Hatch, City Commissioners, police and Fire Chiefs for handing this situation very well. This will add a ‘feather of peace’ in the City’s reputation. We hope Mulberry will be a catalyst in showing the way in handling conflict with dignity and peace.

We thank the Media for giving value to the work towards peace rather than conflict.

Thank you.


The people in Dallas are making an effort to understand and clean their own hearts first, when we are free from bias, it would be easy to share that with others. Islam teaches us in so many ways to "respect the otherness of others" and it is time we find simple practical ways of doing it.
