Primordial Smoke After the Big Bang in Quran

Primordial Smoke After the Big Bang in Quran

In the Quran, there is a reference to smoke in the context of the creation of the universe and the origins of life

📖Quran: 41:11
Then He directed Himself to the heaven while it was smoke and said to it and to the earth, “Come [into being], willingly or by compulsion.” They said, “We have come willingly.

  • This verse is describing the creation of the universe, and the reference to the heaven and earth being in a state of smoke, The smoke also be seen as a symbol of the intense heat and energy that were present at the time of the Big Bang, the event that is believed to have marked the beginning of the universe.


  • How the Early Universe Cleared Away the Fog, About 300,000 years after the big bang, the universe was like a smoke-filled chamber from which light could not escape. By the time the universe was a billion years old, the smoke – actually a gas of light-trapping hydrogen – had cleared almost entirely, allowing stars and galaxies to become visible. But exactly what cut through the haze has been one of the big questions in astrophysics. Now, by analyzing images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope, researchers have come close to confirming their best guess: the smoke was cleared away by a blaze of ultraviolet radiation from the earliest galaxies.
