ALLAH REVEALS PAST EVENTS IN HUMAN HISTORY…

Surah Yunus (Chapter Jonah – 10) Verses 13 and 14:

Translation by Abdullah Yusuf Ali:

Generations before you We destroyed when they did wrong: their Apostles came to them with Clear Signs but they would not believe! Thus do We requite those who sin! (13). Then We made you heirs in the land after them to see how ye would behave! (14).

Translation by M. M. Pickthall:

We destroyed the generations before you when they did wrong; and their messengers came unto them with clear proofs but they would not believe. Thus do We reward the guilty folk: (13). Then We appointed you viceroys in the earth after them, that We might see how ye behave. (14).

Translation by N. J. Dawood (non-Muslim):

We destroyed many generations before you when they did wrong and denied the veritable signs which their apostles had given them. Thus shall the guilty be rewarded. (13). Then We made you their successors in the land, so that We might see how you would conduct yourselves. (14).

Translation by Professor Arthur J. Arberry (non-Muslim):

We destroyed the generations before you when they did evil, and their Messengers came to them with the clear signs, but they would not believe; so We recompense the people of the sinners. (13). Then We appointed you viceroys in the earth after them, that We might behold how you would do. (14).

Translation by Thomas Cleary (non-Muslim):

We destroyed communities before you when they did wrong. Their messengers came to them with clarifications, but they could not believe. Thus do We requite sinful people. (13). Then We made you successors on earth after them, that We might see how you act. (14).

Transliteration of the above text:

Walaqad ‘ahlaknal-qurouna min-qabli-kum lamma zalamou wa ja-’at-hum rusuluhum-bil-Bayyi-nati wa ma kanou li- yu’-minou! Kazalika najzil-qawmal-mu-jrimeen. (13). Thumma ja-’alnakum khala-’ifa fil-’ardi mim-ba’-di-him linanzura kayfa ta’-ma-loun. (14).

Author’s Notes:

1. The above two verses EXPLICITLY REVEAL that Allah (s.w.t.) had destroyed the sinful communities/guilty generations that had lived upon this earth in the past before HE designated anyone or any community as His Viceroy (Khala-’ifa) on earth.

2. The opening Arabic text of Verse (14) reads; Thumma ja-’alnakum Khala-’ifa fil-’ardi mim ba’di him; translated: Then We appointed you Viceroys in the earth after them indicates that the time of this destruction was in the period before Adam.

3. The opening word Thumma along with ja’alnaa appears in verses 10:14; 17:6 & 18; 23: 13 & 44; 25: 45; 45:18 and 57: 27. In each instances it refers to an event or thing that happened thereafter. Here we are told, from Verses 10: 13 and 14 of the Qur’an that the CREATION OF ADAM and his progeny happened after DESTRUCTION of Earlier Generations.

THE WORDS OF ALLAH ARE NOT CIRCUMSCRIBED BY TIME,

ALTHOUGH INTERPRETATIONS ARE…

One may be inclined to question why no commentator of the Qur’an had in the past

written about any generation of “Mankind” living upon this earth before the creation of ADAM, in reference to the above quoted verses number10: 13 and 14 of the Qur’an?

ANSWER:

“For every (revealed) tiding there is a term set for its fulfillment

and in time you will come to know. Qur’an 6: 67.

In Verse 92 of the same Surah Yunus (10) Allah had also REVEALED, 1400 years ago, the PRESERVATION of the body of the rebellious and transgressing Pharaoh who had pursued the Prophet Moses and the Children of Israel, as a portent for the future generations to come.

“But this day We save thee in thy body that thou may be a portent for those after thee.

Lo! most of mankind are heedless of Our portents.” (Q. 10: 92). No commentator of the Qur’an could possibly write with absolute certainty about the preservation of Pharaoh’s body until that body was discovered. Today, having found the mummified body of Merneptah, son of Ramesses II – the Pharaoh of Exodus, by Loret in 1898 at Thebes from the King’s Valley, that tiding of verse 10: 92 is being Proudly Propagated without any reservation. Further details for the removal of Mummy’s wrappings on July 8, 1907 by Elliot Smith, its transportation to Cairo Museum are recorded in the book; ‘The Bible, The Qur’an And Science’ by Maurice Bucaille, USA Library of Congress Catalog Cards Numbers 77-90336.

It was only a few years ago that scientific discoveries surfaced about a race of STUNTED PEOPLE living on a remote island of Indonesia, nearly 6,000 years before the time in which Adam and his family lived in the middle-east. Insha’Allah, in a few years time the Muslim Scholars will visit the sites of those discoveries and Proudly Proclaim the Glory of the Qur’an.

“Now they have denied (the Truth); but there will come unto them tidings of the reality whereat they used to scoff.” Qur’an 26: 6.

TRADITIONAL BELIEVERS MAY SEEK TO DENY THESE

SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERIES…

A reader who is influenced by the age old traditional beliefs and/or by the popular Biblical Story of Creation that has found its place within the HADITHS (e.g. a questionable narration attributed the Prophet and compiled by Muslim under #039.6707 which records; Allah began the creation with clay on Saturday and ended it with Adam on Friday after the noon-prayer), may reject all the earlier presented arguments and claim; Allah had Created ADAM at the same time or rather in the same week, that He created every thing on this Earth. He/she may have no interest in pursuing scientific discoveries which in reality Glorify the Qur’an and conclusively prove that the Qur’an is not a copy of the Jewish/Christian Testaments. The Qur’an reveals that Allah had created the races of Jinns and Angels before Adam, which one does not find in the Creation Stories from Book of Genesis or in the above Hadeeth compiled by Muslim.

We created man out of sounding clay from mud molded into shape; And the race of Jinn We had created aforetime, from the smokeless fire. Qur’an 15: 26/27.

ANGELS APPREHENSION, BEFORE THE CREATION OF ADAM…

“And when thy Lord said unto the angels: Lo! I am about to place a Viceroy in the earth, they [angels] said: Wilt Thou place therein one who will do harm therein and will shed blood, while we sing Your praises and glorify Your name? He said: Surely I know that which you know not.” Qur’an 2: 30.

This special epithet “a Viceroy in the earth” was given in advance by Allah, to ADAM – the one whom HE was about to create. The Angels of Allah  were supposed to prostrate in obedience to Allah’s Command to THAT ADAM. The Prophets who came after THAT ADAM and even the descendants of Adam are often respectfully addressed as the “Khalifa(s) of Allah”. Only Viceroy of Allah before whom Angels did prostrate and Iblis did not, was THAT ADAM.

The Qur’an speaks of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.s.) in 21:107 as “a grace/mercy for the worlds” but it does not state the Prophet Muhammad was Allah’s Viceroy upon the earth.

The verses quoted earlier do inform that the race of Jinns and Angels were also created before Adam. The expressed apprehension by the Angels to The Creator, prior to the Creation of ADAM, provokes a serious question: Since knowledge of future events is known to Allah ALONE, were these Angels expressing their concerns after witnessing the sinful deeds of EARLIER STUNTED PEOPLE – HUMANOIDS and their total Destruction on the earth?

UNVEILING KNOWLEDGE OF THE CREATION….

Say: “Travel through the earth and see how Allah did originate creation: so will Allah produce a later creation: for Allah has power over all things. Qur’an 29: 20.

Soon will We show them Our Signs in the (furthest) regions (of the earth) and in their own souls until it becomes manifest to them that this is the Truth. Is it not enough that thy Lord doth witness all things? Qur’an 41: 53.

Author’s Notes:

1. The Revealed Words of Allah and the Revealed Truth are eternal. They do NOT change with time. However, our limited understanding does change. When the “hidden realities” are unfolded and known to us we have to gracefully accept the “Allah’s Signs” within our Souls.

2. Today, mankind’s travel “in the (furthest) regions” is possible with comfort and ease.

The Internet, a concept of which our ancestors had no clue, has made it possible to learn these facts without leaving our chairs. Secondly, centuries ago it would not have been possible to determine the period of existence of these Stunted People because the carbon dating and other dating techniques had not been perfected.

It is Allah Who begins (the process of) creation; then repeats it; then shall you be brought back to Him. Qur’an 30: 11.  The transliteration of this verse reads:

‘A-LLahu yabda-’ul-khalqa thumma yu-’eeduhou thumma ilayhi turja-’oun.

Note: The Resurrection will come after the repeated processes of the creations.

GOD CREATED ADAM AND EVE IN 4004 B.C.

DEDUCED FROM THE BIBLE…

Below is an interesting passage, published in the year 1989 from Boston, Toronto, London by Little, Brown and Company. Then famous authors of the book are Edey and Johanson:

Just before 1650 a learned Irish archbishop, James Ussher, decided to calculate the age of the earth from evidence in the Bible. Working his way back through all the “begats,” he concluded that Adam and Eve had been created by God in 4,004 B.C. Other scholars confirmed this finding. They even improved on it, pinpointing  the actual moment of human creation at 9:00 A.M. on Sunday, October 23. This date thereafter assumed a heavy weight of authority. It became a baseline  for measuring earthly time, a point at which scholarship and science met and blended with Church doctrine. Later geological evidence would have a hard time dislodging it.  Blueprints Solving The Mystery Of Evolution, (page 8).

This chronology prepared by archbishop James Ussher appears in some twentieth-century Bibles. It places the Creation of Adam less than 6,100 years ago. Today, churches and bishops may distance themselves from that precise timetable extracted from the Bible.

NEWS FROM NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC AND THEIR PICTURE GALLERY…

The National Geographic News of October 27, 2004 had the details, as well as an illustration for the Hobbit-Like species of Human that grew no larger than a three-year-old modern child and had smaller skulls than ours. They lived with the pygmy elephants and Komodo dragons on a remote island in Indonesia more than 12,000 years ago. The original skeleton, a female, stood at just 1 meter (3.3 feet) tall, weighed about 25 kilograms (55 pounds), and was around 30 years old at the time of her death. Scientists have named this species of “mankind” as the Homo Floresiensis. This News was prominently reproduced by many newspapers including the two major Canadian Daily Newspapers, the Associated Press, New York Times Syndicate, Nature News Service and other news services. Below are clippings from two Canadian Daily Newspapers. 


THE GLOBE AND MAIL, OCTOBER 28, 2004  SCIENCE SECTION,

ARTICLE BY ALANNA MITCHELL, PAGE A3


THE VANCOUVER SUN, OCTOBER 28, 2004, SCIENCE SECTION,

ARTICLES BY REX DALTON AND CHRIS STRINGER, PAGE A12


The illustration above is by Peter Schouten of National Geographic News published along with the two-page News Story about Homo floresiensis.A male Homo floresiensis returns from the hunt. Found on the island of Flores in Indonesia, these ancient humans grew no taller than a three-year-old modern-human child. Their small size led scientists to nickname the species “hobbits,” after the tiny Lord of the Rings characters. The first such individual found was female. Since then at least seven individuals have been found, including males.

The archaeological find will be featured in a National Geographic Channel program to air in early 2005.


The National Geographic’s News Story has several other diverse theories about modern humans. What we have seen in the above Picture Gallery is a physical observation. That sets it apart from the prevalent theories.The following passage from the National Geographic News Story 2004/10 concerning the Human Tribes, proves that Homo floresiensis existed on the Island of Flores before the arrival of Modern Humans and that is deduced from the thousands of years old volcanic ash layers. More on subject of fossil layers later.Mingling of the Human Tribes

There is no evidence of modern humans reaching Flores before 11,000 years ago, so it is unknown whether the hobbit intermingled with modern humans. The researchers found hobbit and pygmy stegodon remains only below a 12,000-year-old volcanic ash layer. Modern human remains were found only above the layer.

The Qur’an – Koran also describes creation of the generations of stunted people before Adam. There is a verse in the Qur’an under the chapter Al ‘Insaan (meaning; The Man), comparing the frames/makes of the earlier people with ours.


THE ACT OF BETTER RE-CREATION, AFTER A PERIOD OF INACTIVITY:

Surah Al-’Insaan or “The Man” (76) VERSES 1 and 28

Has there not been over Man a long period of Time when he was nothing–(not even) mentioned (remembered)? Qur’an 76: 1.

It is We Who created them [men]

and strengthened their frame; and when We will,

We can replace them, bringing others like them in their stead. Qur’an 76: 28.

The Arabic term wa shadadnaa ‘asrahum is translated by Yusuf Ali as “We made their joints strong”; Pickthall writes: “We strengthened their frame”; M. Asad has translated: “strengthened their make”; M. H. Shakir translates it as “We made firm their make”.

Author’s Notes:

1 The Verse 76: 1 above, speaks of a LONG PERIOD of INACTIVITY between the Creations of Man.

This fact is substantiated by scientists after physically examining the 12,000-year-old volcanic ash layers.

2 Many readers may be familiar with the recent discoveries by leading paleontologists of our era about “Punctuated Equilibrium”. This in essence challenges Darwinism and asserts from fossil records that instead of a slow, continuous movement, evolution tends to be characterized by long periods of virtual standstill. Species became extinct and after an interval species are replaced by new forms. Instead of a slow, continuous progression, the evolution of life on Earth seems more like the game of creation, destruction, interval and a better creation. Punctuated equilibrium or Equilibria (plural), is a physical observation not a theory. It contradicts some of Darwin’s ideas regarding evolution. Here the speciation occurs relatively quickly, with long periods of little change—equilibria—in between and the typical lack of substantial change of species during their existence. In the theory of punctuated equilibrium, “peripheral isolates” are considered to be of critical importance for speciation. Isolation is of great importance in the production of new species. For further info on the subject visit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punctuated_equilibrium

 

3. The Verse (28) speaks of Allah having given stronger joints and a firmer body frame to us. That is clear from the newspaper cuttings with pictures showing the skulls of the “Earlier Man” and the “Recent Man”.

4. The concept of Creating ADAM was to see how the children of Adam would behave and act after receiving progressive Guidance and Instructions through Messengers upon Messengers. The earlier warnings about the possible destruction of the present generation – “us”, is stated ONCE AGAIN in the following verses. These explicit fore-warnings from Allah about the “Total Destruction” and “Complete Disappearance” need much greater public awareness in order to save this Humanity.

AN APPEAL: THE DAILY KILLING OF HOMO SAPIENS BY HOMO SAPIENS MUST STOP ELSE WE TOO

WILL DISAPPEAR FROM THE FACE OF EARTH AND BE FORGOTTEN LIKE HOMO FLORESIENSIS.

If He so Wills, He can cause you, O mankind, to disappear, and bring forth other being [instead], for Allah has indeed power to do this.

Qur’an  4: 133.

If He so pleased He could blot you out and bring in a New Creation (khalqin jadeed).

Qur’an 35: 16.

But how many (countless) generation before them have We destroyed? Canst thou find a single one of them (now) or hear (so much as) a whisper of them?  

Qur’an 19: 98.

Neurologists have discovered that we Homo sapiens do not use a part of the brain given to us. Will the NEXT Generation of Homo FUTURE, if and when Created, use that portion as well and be superior to us?.

The Qur’an speaks of the folding up of the Sun, the Moon and the Earth at the end time and that Promised Act is not to be confused with the removal and replacement of the

“living beings” upon this earth.

MORE EVIDENCES FROM THE QUR’AN FOR THE EARLIER LIFE…

And [recall] when [or Whenever as per Asad's translation], your Rabb (Lord) took from the Children of Adam [collectively or individually], from their loins, their progeny, and made them bear witness over themselves — “Am I not your Rabb (Lord)?” They said: “Yes, we testify” — lest you should say on the Day of Judgment:

“We indeed were about it unaware.” Qur’an 7 : 172.

This Question “Am I not your Rabb (Lord)?” and its Response did take place BEFORE OUR BIRTH. The TESTIFYING SOULS of ours could only bear witness/testify what they had themselves heard/learnt from the Messengers sent to the Earlier Generations.

Remember Allah’s grace upon you and His Covenant by which He bound you when you said: “We hear and we obey”; and keep your duty to Allah. Allah knoweth what is in the breasts (of men).  

Qur’an 5: 7.

In the above verse, Allah is REMINDING the children of ADAM, of HIS Covenant – formal AGREEMENT made before our Birth by our Souls to which we are bound. That proves that our PRESENT LIFE upon this earth has indeed an irrefutable DIRECT LINK with our SOULS’ ACTIONS/ADMISSIONS PRIOR TO THIS LIFE ON EARTH.

MORE EVIDENCES FROM THE SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH FOR THE EARLIER LIFE…

Here is an abstract from http://www.clovisinthesoutheast.net/firestone.html

EVIDENCE OF A CATASTROPHIC IMPACT EVENT AT THE END OF THE CLOVIS ERA

Richard B. Firestone, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Allen West, GeoScience Consulting
Theodore E. Bunch, Northern Arizona University and NASA Ames Research Center (retired)
James H. Wittke, Northern Arizona University
Abstract:
We have found evidence of an extraterrestrial impact event in sediments dated to 13,000 ca yr. BP at the Gainey,
 

 

Murray Springs, Blackwater, and Topper Clovis sites and four additional sites in Manitoba. High concentrations

of magnetic particles and spherules were extracted with a magnet at each of these sites but not from the adjacent

sediment layers. Carbon rich impactites, charcoal, and low-density, nonmagnetic spherules were also found in

association with the magnetic particles but nowhere else. Survey of these sediments with a radiation meter

indicated a sharp increase in radioactivity near the 13,000 ca yr. BP layer at all sites and a second increase at

the Topper site in a layer estimated to be 40,000 ca yr. BP. Samples from the younger layer were analyzed by

Neutron Activation Analysis and found to be substantially enriched in U, and Th, naturally radioactive elements,

explaining the increased radioactivity in this layer. These results are consistent with the explosion of a

near-earth supernova that would have irradiated the earth 40,000 years ago with a gamma-ray burst and again

13,000 years ago with the impact of a cloud of supernova ejecta. Supporting evidence from the cosmogenic

isotope record of the past 40,000 years, analysis of lunar and Martian sediment data, and elemental and isotopic analysis

of the impact layers and artifacts will be presented. The implications to the extinctions of mega fauna and the

impact on humans during that time will be discussed..

The Clovis Era:

The Clovis culture is a prehistoric Native American culture that first appears in the archaeological record of

North America around 13,500 years ago, at the end of the last ice age. The culture is named for artifacts found

near Clovis, New Mexico. There are a number of controversial sites vying for the position of the earliest site in the region.

The best evidence, however, suggests that a society of hunters and gatherers known as Clovis People were the first

to settle in the Southwest, probably sometime before 9,500 B.C. The Clovis People were so named after the New Mexico

town, site of the first discovery in 1932, near Clovis, N.M. The culture lasted for about a half a millennium, from about

11,200 to 10,900 years ago. People of the Clovis culture were successful, efficient big-game hunters and foragers.

Judging from sites on the North American Great Plains, the Clovis people were skilled hunters of huge animals,

especially the Ice Age mammoths and mastodons. My thanks are due to http://www.crystalinks.com/clovis.html

ALLAH HAS RE-CREATED BETTER SPECIES OF MAN, MEGA FAUNA AND THE REST…

“Is not He (best), Who produceth creation, then reproduceth it,

and Who provideth for you from the heaven and the earth?

Is there any God beside Allah? Say: Bring your proof, if ye are truthful!
Say (O Muhammad): None in the heavens and the earth knoweth the
Unseen save Allah; and they know not when they will be raised (again).”

Glorious Qur’an 27: 64-65.
