The Fate of the Universe
This is the Quranic account of the destiny of the universe. It began as a singularity and violently hot. The universe suddenly expanded creating space and time. The Qur'an then describes the early universe at a later stage as hot, hazy and gaseous. In the distant future overwhelming gravitational forces will halt the expansion. Space-time will be curved upon itself and the universe will start to contract. It will become gaseous once more and towards the end, matter will be crushed into its constituent atoms and subatomic particles and finally the universe will collapse into a singularity. From this second singularity a new inconceivable cosmos will emerge. This is not an oscillating universe. It is simply mind-bobbling that a 7th century document could give such a precise scientific account of the origin and fate of the universe.

There is no separate, scientific or philosophical truth, only a unified truth whatever its source. - Joseph Noor
