Climate changes are increasing because of what man has done. This subject was been mentioned in Quran….
Allah Almighty says: (Corruption doth appear on land and sea because of (the evil) which men's hands have done, that He may make them taste a part of that which they have done, in order that they may return.) [Ar-room: 41]. Let us take a closer look at the verse and what it points out of recently discovered scientific facts:
1- (Corruption doth appear on land and sea). Scientists confirm that serious corruption is about to appear. It is true that the ozone layer is not yet completely depleted, but some signs of warning that the Earth is being spoiled are appearing. Even scientists use the term “Spoil” to express the corruption that is going around the earth.
2- (because of which men's hands have done). The Quran stresses that this corruption in the form of pollution or contamination can only happen because of what man’s evil deeds. Isn’t mankind responsible for the pollution as scientists confirm?
3- (that He may make them taste a part of that which they have done). This is a torment Allah is inflicting upon those wrong doers because of their evil deeds and mischief on Earth.
4- (in order that they may return) meaning that the possibility of returning the Earth to a balance exists, and this is what scientists confirm today.
And now the question is: Is this verse compatible with the science or not?
