Dna - Intelligent Design by the Creator

DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid, is the hereditary material in humans and almost all other organisms. Nearly every cell in a person’s body has the same DNA. Most DNA is located in the cell nucleus (where it is called nuclear DNA), but a small amount of DNA can also be found in the mitochondria (where it is called mitochondrial DNA). The information in DNA is stored as a code made up of four chemical bases: adenine (A), guanine (G), cytosine (C), and thymine (T).

Human DNA consists of about 3 billion bases, and more than 99 percent of those bases are the same in all people. The order, or sequence, of these bases, determines the information available for building and maintaining an organism, similar to the way in which letters of the alphabet appear in a certain order to form words and sentences. DNA bases pair up with each other, A with T and C with G, to form units called base pairs. Each base is also attached to a sugar molecule and a phosphate molecule. Together, a base, sugar, and phosphate are called a nucleotide. Nucleotides are arranged in two long strands that form a spiral called a double helix. The structure of the double helix is somewhat like a ladder, with the base pairs forming the ladder’s rungs and the sugar and phosphate molecules forming the vertical sidepieces of the ladder.
Look at the people around you and for a movement think about their characteristics, in fact, the color of their eyes, skin, height, facial features, skeletal shape and countless details in their internal organs, brain, nerves, and muscles are all recorded in the DNA. DNA is like an information recording system or a database in your body. This database saves information about the cell in which is placed and about all the other cells in your body, the first cell which forms when the sperm and egg are joined, also forms the first copy of the DNA molecule which will carry the code in every cell of the person’s body right up until death.

DNA is a molecule of considerable size if you remember that the average size of a cell is smaller than a hundredth of an MM than you would know that we are talking about something far smaller than that. The DNA is carefully protected within the nucleus of the cell and this molecule is an information bank of the human body as it contains the GENES. The first cell (the fertilized egg), then divides and multiplies in the light of the program recorded in the DNA. So the tissues and organs begin to form, this is the beginning of a human being.

The coordination of this complex structuring is brought by the DNA molecule. Quran “OF WHAT SUBSTANCE GOD (ALLAH) CREATED HIM? FROM A NUTFAH (DROP OF SPERM) HE CREATED HIM THEN SET HIM IN DUE PROPORTION, THEN HE (ALLAH) EASED THE PATH OF LIFE FOR HIM [80:18-20]. The word “QADDARAHU” translated as “PROPORTIONED” in the mentioning verse comes from the Arabic verb “QADARA”. It translates as “arranging, sitting out, planning, programming or the writing of everything in destiny by (Allah {SWT}). Bearing in mind that the structure of DNA was unraveled by Francis Crick in 1953, it is truly amazing that the Quran pointed to the concept of “GENETIC PLANING” in the age when the mankind’s knowledge was very limited.
This remarkable fact again proves that the Quran is the word of Almighty creator. The amount of information contained in DNA is amazing, if we compare a human body to a building, in fact, all the predetermined information of this building can be found in the DNA even if this information is as tiny as an Atom. In addition to all the Physical characteristics, thousands of different processes taking place in the cells and body and indeed the control of the whole system are recorded in the DNA. The scientists have provided different theories to describe the amount of information contained in a DNA.

To know the amount of the recorded information in the DNA suppose that we write all those information in the books and pile them up, the height of it would reach to some 70 meters, or if a person would type about 8 hours per day with a speed of 60 words per minute it would take 50 years for him to type all of that information.

SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE AND ITS CONSEQUENCES.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so

MUSLIMS MOURN ALI BANAT - THE MAN ‘GIFTED WITH CANCER’

It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy

THE MAN WHO INSPIRE MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS EVEN WHEN HE IS PASSED AWAY (ALI BANAT)

Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
