The Big Crunch Theory

Quranic Reference: In Surah Al-Anbya, it is mentioned, "The Day when We will fold the heaven like the folding of a [written] sheet for the records" (Quran, 21:104).

Scientific Proof: This aligns with the Big Crunch theory in astrophysics, which predicts that the universe may eventually collapse back into a small point​​.


Quranic Reference: Surah Al-Mu'minun describes stages of embryonic development. (Quran, 23:12, 23:13, 23:14).

Conflux of Seas

Quranic Reference: The Quran describes the phenomenon of two seas meeting without mixing. (Quran, 55:19 55:20).

Scientific Proof: This refers to the conflux of seas where two water bodies meet but retain their distinct characteristics like temperature, salinity, and density​​.

Moon's Light is Reflected
