WHY DOESN'T ALLAH SHOW SIGNS TO THE DISBELIEVERS AS AND WHEN REQUESTED?



 Attention please ! 


This article is for those who believe in GOD, whereas for those who deny GOD Alltogether, and conveniently believe that the entire universe and every thing in it was created on its own, then they are used to watching a lot of Magic shows. Side Effects of T.V - In another article In sha Allah :P 

Here is a quick short debate between our scholar and two of your (atheist) kind a thousand years ago 

Ibn Abu Al-‘Izz reported: It is said that Abu Hanifa, may Allah have mercy on him, was approached by some speculative theologians who intended to discuss with him the oneness of Allah’s Lordship. He said, “Before we discuss this question, tell me what you think about a boat in the Euphrates which goes to shore, loads itself with food and other things, then returns, anchors and unloads all by itself, without anyone sailing or controlling it?” They said, “This is impossible.” He said, “If it is impossible with a boat, then how is it possible for the world, in all its vastness, to move by itself?

[Sharh Aqidah At-Tahawi 35]


Now, even though , Qur'an or in other words lets say Islam has passed all the tests which the disbelievers put forth, be it in terms of compatibility, or in terms of wisdom, or intelligence (such as science) or morale, culture and etc, Islam has passed all of these. Since time immemorial, the disbelievers keep throwing accusations, out of context quote allegations, so on and so forth, but praise be to Allah, for his army i.e those whom he guided and had mercy on to enable them to refute such false allegations and eradicate the misconceptions both perceived and spread, we (i.e those Muslims who are knowledgeable) today have become EXPERTS in debunking and refuting any and all sorts of doubts, allegations and etc. Alhumdulillah ! Yet, we see the Non muslims demand for miracles, now and then, just like how they see on T.V or a magic show, they demand for the miracles (signs) of Allah to pop out instantly as and when they demand for it. "Yea right" . Let us answer this using the islamic literature, for it would serve the purpose better in sha allah. 

Note: There are just too many signs and miracles to quote in one blog post, rather we have books on them. From the creation of Universe until the 'still-preserved' body (Mummy) of thousand years old Pharoah , everything is a sign.


      { And nothing stops Us from sending the Ayaat (proofs, evidences, signs) except that the people of old denied them. And We sent the she-camel to Thamood as a clear sign, but they did her wrong. } [Al Israa: 59]

Allaah the Elevated mentions His mercy of not sending the miracles that the disbelievers request, that nothing prevents Him from sending them except the fear that they would not believe in them, for if they deny them, their punishment would be near, it would take them without delay, as was the case with the earlier generations who belied the miracles.

Amongst the greatest of signs was the one revealed to the people of Thamood, it was a huge, magnificent camel which used to provide for the entire tribe. However they belied this miracle and the torment that Allaah related to us in His Book befell them.

These people likewise, if the greatest of signs were to be shown to them, they would not believe, because what is preventing them from believing is not the concealment of what the Messengers came with, nor is it that it is unclear, whether it is the truth or falsehood. There is indeed a lot of substantial evidence that necessitates the following of guidance for those who are looking for it. So revealing other signs [such as miracles] are similar to it, they would follow the same path regarding them as they did with the evidence, so refraining from sending miracles in this state of theirs is better and more beneficial for them.

Allaah explained elsewhere that there is no need for their request for miracles, because He revealed a miracle that is greater than any other miracle they requested, and that miracle is in this magnificent Qur-aan, it is His saying:
{ Is it not sufficient for them that We have sent down to you the Book (the Qur-aan) which is recited to them } [ Al ‘Ankaboot: 51]


So rebuking them for not being satisfied with this Book and not other miracles shows that it is greater and more magnificent than any other miracle. And it is so, do you not see that it is a clear sign, a magnificent miracle, all of mankind together cannot not produce the likes of it, and it remains, being repeated to be heard by the creation until the hour is established, unlike other miracles at the hands of other Messengers, may the Salaat and Salaam be upon all of them, those miracles have all come to an end.

Sa’eed ibn Jubayr said:

“The polytheists said: ‘O Muhammad, you claim that there were Messengers before you, amongst them was one who could control the wind, one who would bring life to the dead, so if you would like us to believe in you and have faith, then invoke your Lord to turn Mount Safaa into gold.’

So Allaah revealed to him: ‘I have heard what they said, if you like that We make true what they requested it shall be so, but if they do not believe [after that], then the punishment would descend upon them, for indeed there is no dispute after the revelation of miracles, and if you wish that we wait with your people, then We shall wait with them.”

The Messenger then said: ‘My Lord, wait with them.’


Al Imaam Ahmad narrated with his Isnaad that ibn ‘Abbaas said:

The people of Quraysh said to the Prophet - صلى الله عليه وسلم -: ‘Invoke your Lord to turn Mount Safaa into gold and we shall believe in you.’

He replied: ‘Would you really believe?’

They said: ‘Yes’

So he invoked his Lord and Gibreel came and said: ‘Your Lord extends the Salaam to you and says: ‘If you wish, mount Safaa would turn to gold for them, but whoever disbelieves after that, I will torment him like I have not tormented anyone from Mankind and Jinn, and if you wish I shall open for them the door of repentance and mercy.’

He responded: ‘Rather the door of mercy and repentance.


Compiled from the following books of Tafseer:

Adwaa al Bayaan
Tafseer as Sa’dee and
Tafseer ibn Katheer

The hour is nigh, and the moon was cleft asunder. But if they see a Sign they turn away and say “This is (but) Continuous magic” They reject and follow their own lusts but every matter has its Appointed time

[Ref: Qur`aan, Al Qamar, 1-3)


Some Non Muslim friends object by saying " Why do you compare us to them? how do you know we would deny like them? 


Well, the answer to this is " If you could follow them in your religion (i.e denying Allah/Islam) then what proof do we have to believe beforehand that you would oppose them in the objections they raised (i.e by believing when they didn't) "

However, the above explained was regarding those who keep demanding for instantaneous signs now and then, but for those who seek for signs, or proofs entailing the miracle of Allah and etc, then for this purpose we have ample of incidents and evidences available. Signs could be any and everything. It could be

- A rational explanation which proves how wrong we were to follow something or some theory all this while,

- A miracle such as a prophecy coming true or a fact mentioned in the Qur'an, the knowledge of which was deprived or not accessible to mankind except for a few years recently 

- It could be a command or a law which proves to fulfill the purpose of absolute justice 

- It could be an Islamic teaching which benefits both inner and outer self of not only an individual but also an entire society or community 

Depending on the situation, the perspective and topic, signs of Allah come forward in different pictures as well. Thus, we have signs in each and every thing. The very fact how we humans are created since the beginning to be dependent on air and aquatic beings such as fish are the complete opposite in their dependency is in itself a sign implying that a source, a powerful creator, is behind this deisng and he designs as he wills , whom he wills and how he wills. If Allah could create us in this fashion, he is also all capable to create us in the opposite manner. No one can produce a firm absolute scientific evidence so as to show how , when and most important of all WHY are we designed as we are today and not the opposite way. Some signs of Allah, very briefly mentioned,  are as follows : 

Before we Begin please remember that the signs i am enlisting below were informed 1435 years ago !!!. We can't take care to keep our day to day things safely and save them from spoiling, but Allah sure did take care of his revelations and commandments since centuries and as he promised in the Qur'an itself he will guard it till Judgement day (Qiyamah)

 We will soon show them Our Ayats (proofs, evidences,lessons, signs, revelation, etc.)in the Universe and in their own souls, until it will become quite clear to them that it( the Quran) is the truth. Is it not sufficient as regards your Lord that He is a witness over all things? Soorat Fussilat{41:53}

And say: Praise be to Allah, He will show you His signs so that you shall recognize them; nor is your Lord heedless of what you do.Soorat Al Naml {27:93}


He has made subject to you the Night and the Day; the sun and the moon; and the stars are in subjection by His Command: verily in this are Signs for men who are wise. Soorat An Nahl {16:12}

Our sun has a surface temperature of about 6,000°C.The Sun is traveling at the enormous speed of 720,000 kilometers an hour.

A single sun burst is equivalent to 100 billion atomic bombs similar to the one dropped on Hiroshima.

A smaller star than the Sun would cause the Earth to grow extremely cold, and a bigger star would scorch the Earth


Among His Signs are the Night and the Day, and the Sun and the Moon. Do not prostrate to the sun and the moon, but prostrate to Allah, Who created them, if it is Him you wish to serve. Soorat Fussilat {41:37}

Neither is it allowable to the sun that it should overtake the moon, nor can the night outstrip the day; and all float on in a sphere.Soorat Yasin {36:40}
If gravitational interaction with moon were less, orbital obliquity changes would cause climatic instabilities.

If gravitational interaction with moon were greater, tidal effects on the oceans, atmosphere, and rotational period would be too severe.

Earth could not be a home for life if it were as near the sun as Venus is or as far from it as Jupiter.

Who created the seven heavens one above another; you see no fault in the creation of the Beneficent Allah; then look again, can you see any disorder? Then look again and yet again, thy sight will return unto thee weakened and made dim.{Soorat Al Mulk 67:3-4}

 There are over 250 billion stars in the Milky Way. The distance between stars in our galaxy is about 30 million miles. If this distance was much less, planetary orbits would be destabilized. And He has set up on the earth mountains standing firm, lest it should shake with you; and rivers and roads; that you may guide yourselves.Soorat An Nahl {16:15} The pressure the mountains exert on the crust of the earth with their enormous mass prevents the magma movements in the core of the earth from reaching the earth and destroying the earth's crust. If thickness of crust were thinner, volcanic and tectonic activity would be too great. And among His Signs, He shows you the lightning, by way both of fear and of hope, and He sends down rain from the sky and with it gives life to the earth after it is dead: verily in that are Signs for those who are wise. Soorat Al Ruum {30:24} Every cloud contains thousands—sometimes millions—of tons of water in the form of vapor. Every year, the amount of water that evaporates and that falls back to the Earth in the form of rain is "constant": 513 trillion tons. The speed of rain drops, regardless of their size, does not exceed 8 meters in a second. SIGNS OF ALLAH S.W.T. IN THE PLANT KINGDOM He Who has made for you the fire (to burn) from the green tree, and behold! with it you kindle (fire).Soorat Yasin{36:80} Have you observed the fire which you strike out; Is it you that produce the trees for it, or are We the producers? Soorat Waqia{56:71-72}Plants absorb 129 billion tons of carbon-dioxide from the atmosphere for the purposes of cleaning every year. Without photosynthesis, plant life could not exist; and without plant life, there would be no animal or human life. If plants didn't release oxygen, the oxygen-breathers would eventually use up all the free oxygen in the atmosphere and that would be the end of them. Carbon is the basis of life on earth because all organic molecules (such as nucleic acids, amino acids, proteins, fats, and sugars) are formed by the combination of carbon with other elements in various ways. The trees in a thousand square meter area of forest can comfortably put 7.5 tons of water into the atmosphere. We would need over five hundred years to count the number of atoms inside a tiny grain of salt. SIGNS OF ALLAH (S.W.T.) IN THE ANIMAL KINGDOM: And among His Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the living creatures that He has scattered through them: and He has power to gather them together when He wills.Soorat Ash Shura {42:29} Will they not then consider the Camels, how they are created?Soorat Al Ghashiya {88:17}Camels can consume up to 130 liters of water, which is around one third of their body weight, in almost 10 minutes. Although a humped camel can take in 30-50 kilograms of food in a day, in tough conditions it is able to live up to one month with only 2 kg of grass a day. The camel can survive without food and water for eight days at a temperature of 50°C. Desert camels are not affected by high temperatures up to 50°C, and double-humped Bactrian camels can survive in very low temperatures down to -50°C. The camel increases its internal temperature to 41°C and as such keeps water loss to a minimum in the extreme hot climates of the desert daytime. When giraffes bend down, the valves in their neck vessels are shut down and they prevent excess blood from flowing to the brain. The trunks of elephants contain 50,000 muscles. Polar bear can swim in icy cold waters with speeds of 10-11 km/hour for distances of about 2,000 km. Do they not observe the birds above them, spreading their wings and folding them in? None can uphold them except (Allah) Most Gracious: Truly (Allah) Most Gracious: Truly it is He that watches over all things.Soorat Mulk{67:19}A falcon maintains absolute balance while diving for its prey at a speed of 384 km/h. A mother bird understands whether her chicks need food or not from the colours of their gapes(opening of mouth) And your Lord revealed to the bee saying: Make hives in the mountains and in the trees and in what they build: Then to eat of all the produce (of the earth), and find with skill the spacious paths of its Lord: there issues from within their bodies a drink of varying colours, wherein is healing for men: verily in this is a Sign for those who give thought. Soorat An Nahl {16:68-69}Bees produce a substance called “propolis” that has the feature of not allowing any bacteria to live in it. Honeybees, wasps and flies flap their wings 200 to 400 times per second. This rate goes up to 1,000 in sandflies and some 1mm long parasites. SIGNS OF ALLAH S.W.T. IN THE HUMAN BODY: We have honoured the children of Adam; provided them with transport on land and sea; given them for sustenance things good and pure; and conferred on them special favours, above a great part of our creation. Soorat Al Isra {17:70} We have indeed created man in the best of moulds (forms). Soorat At Tin {95:4} A single human brain can process work equivalent to that of 4.5 million transistors on a modern microprocessor. About 10 billion cells in the brain have about 120 trillion connections. There are about 100 trillion cells in the human body. Some of these cells are so tiny that even 1 million of them together hardly cover a space as large as the pointed end of a pin. The heart connects the 100 trillions cells in the human body one by one. Every minute 200 million cells in our bodies are produced to replace dead cells. The DNA of a single cell contains the design of 206 bones, 600 muscles, a network of 10,000 auditory muscles, a network of 2 million optic nerves, 100 billion nerve cells, and 100 trillion cells in the body. If the information in DNA were put in the form of a book, these books put on top of each other would reach 70 meters high.(which equals 229.658 792 651 feet). Scientists have also calculated how long it would take to type the gene map of a human and they concluded that a person typing 60 words per minute and working 8 hours a day would take fully a half-century to complete this momentous task. They also stated that approximately 200 telephone directories of 500 pages apiece could be filled with the information contained in DNA. Then He fashioned him in due proportion, and breathed into him the soul. And He gave you (the faculties of) hearing and sight and feeling (and understanding): (yet) little thanks do you give! Soorat As Sajda{32:9} The heart beats approximately 100,000 times a day. Our heart pumps about 43,000 liters of blood per day. The human kidneys filter about 140 liters of blood every day through one million small filtering units. A normal human body has about 5 billion capillaries whose total length, if stretched out, is about 950 kilometers. Say: "Have you considered, if Allah took away your hearing and your sight, and sealed up your hearts, who - a god other than Allah - could restore them to you?" See how We explain the signs by various (symbols); yet they turn aside. Soorat Al Anaam {6:46}The simplest cells have roughly 2,000 different types of proteins. A brain cell is in constant interaction with others numbering up to 10,000. This communication network is far more complex than all the switchboards in the world. The human eye works by some 40 different parts functioning together. Is He then Who creates as one who creates not? Do you not then receive admonition? And If you would count up the favours of Allah, never would you be able to number them: for Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. Soorat An Nahl {16:17-18} Human bones are both stronger and 10 times more flexible than solid steel. Also, bones are much more lightweight than steel. A carcass made of steel would be 3 times heavier than a human skeleton. The nasal bones are especially structured so that the air inhaled can go to the lungs only after circulating several times in the nose and thus warming up. Even for a faint smile, 17 muscles have to work together at the same time. A liver cell is specialized enough to perform more than 500 operations at a time.Does not man see that it is We Who created him from sperm? yet behold! he (stands forth) as an open adversary!And he makes comparisons for Us, and forgets his own (origin and) Creation: He says, "Who can give life to (dry) bones and decomposed ones (at that)?" Say, "He will give them life Who created them for the first time! for He is Well-versed in every kind of creation!- Soorat Yasin{36:77-79} Each red cell can carry 300 million hemoglobin molecules. The lifespan of a red blood cell is about 120 days. When we inhale, oxygen floods into about 300 million tiny chambers in our lungs. If water were only slightly more viscous, it would be impossible for blood to be transported through the body's capillary system Water makes up about 70% of the human body. Immune system elements that the baby needs, such as antibodies or defense cells, are given to the baby ready-made in the mother’s milk. Although we believe that the world lies outside us, it is in the small visual center of our brain. Colors and light are formed in our brains; there is no light and no color outside of our brains Such are the Signs of Allah, which We rehearse to you in Truth; then in what exposition will they believe after (rejecting) Allah and His Signs? Woe to each sinful dealer in Falsehoods: Who hears the communications of Allah recited to him, then persists proudly as though he had not heard them; so announce to him a painful punishment. And when he learns something of Our Signs, he takes them in jest (mockery): for such there will be a humiliating Penalty.In front of them is Hell: and of no profit to them is anything they may have earned, nor any protectors they may have taken to themselves besides Allah: for them is a tremendous Penalty.This is (true) Guidance and for those who reject the Signs of their Lord, is a grievous Penalty of abomination.Soorat Al Jaathiya {45:6-11} Say: "Consider (think, contemplate, etc) all that is in the heavens and on earth"; but neither Signs nor Warners profit those who believe not. Soorat Younus {10:101} Thus do We explain the aayaat {proofs, evidences, lessons, signs, revelation, etc.} in detail, so that they may turn {unto the truth}. Soorat Al A'raaf {7:174} Apart from the above, even the below could be taken as signs from Allah, to show that Islam is the truth and the only way to salvation  SCIENTIFIC MIRACLES IN THE QUR'AN ARE ALSO A SIGN 
Those who ridicule Islamic injuctions and teachings using "science" as their shield , forget one very basic fact, that "science" in itself is limited and gradual in progress. The very fact that what Qur'an mentioned and discussed regarding certain scientific establishments, came into research and knowledge not before a 100-200 years max. In other words, the Lord of the Universe whose wisdom excels and supersedes any and everything has imparted us with a very minute fraction of knowledge 1435 years ago and praise be to Allah for what we knew back then, science has discovered it only recently, once again proving that no matter how advance you get, you cannot bypass the wisdom and intelligence of Allah and to back this statement (which is not really required for sane people) please see the below links : 
Always remember : a century or more ago, if you'd have said 'Earth is not flat', or ' the earth rotates around the sun' you would have been ridiculed too like how some famous philosophers like Galileo and others were ridiculed and threatened , but that doesn't mean you were wrong. Same is the knowledge which Allah imparts us, we may or may not comprehend it. 
'By 1616 the attacks on the ideas of Copernicus had reached a head, and Galileo went to Rome to try to persuade the Catholic Church authorities not to ban Copernicus' ideas. In the end, a decree of the Congregation of the Index was issued, declaring that the ideas that the Sun stood still and that the Earth moved were "false" and "altogether contrary to Holy Scripture", and suspending Copernicus's De Revolutionibus until it could be corrected. Acting on instructions from the Pope before the decree was issued, Cardinal Bellarmine informed Galileo that it was forthcoming, that the ideas it condemned could not be "defended or held", and ordered him to abandon them. One of the thousand scientific miracle is the tailbone aka Cocccyx   Narrated Al–A`mash: Abu Hurairah رضي الله عنه said: Allaah’s Apostle صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “Between the two sounds of the trumpet, there will be forty.” Somebody asked Abu Hurairah, “Forty days?” But he refused to reply. Then he asked, “Forty months?” He refused to reply. Then he asked, “Forty years?” Again, he refused to reply. Abu Hurairah added. “Then (after this period) Allaah will send water from the sky and then the dead bodies will grow like vegetation grows, There is nothing of the human body that does not decay except one bone; that is the little bone at the end of the coccyx of which the human body will be recreated on the Day of Resurrection.” [Saheeh al-Bukhaaree (4862, 4985) and Saheeh Muslim (7603)] Abu Hurairah رضي الله عنه reported so many Ahaadeeth from Allaah’s Apostle صلى الله عليه وسلم and amongst these one was this that Allaah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “There is a bone in the human being which the earth would never consume and it is from this that new bodies would be reconstituted (on the Day of Resurrection).” They said: Allaah’s Messenger, which bone is that? Thereupon he صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “It is the little bone at the end of the coccyx.” [Saheeh Muslim (7605)] Before you laugh at your ignorance, kindly see the below links for a scientific explanation :  Link # 1 : http://www.nicheoftruth.org/pages/the_coccyx_bone.asp Link # 2 : Taken from Prof. Hans Spemman - Noble prize winner : http://www.way-to-allah.com/en/miracles/TheTailboneMiracle.html Dr. Muhammad `Ali Al Barr hold this Hadith as evidence in his book (Deformed Foetus and Genetic Diseases) (The Deformed Foetus and Genetic Diseases, P. (403)), after talking about the formation of the nervous system, he referred to this Hadith. However, the point of his reasoning is not clear to me, so I am quoting some part of his explanation about the primitive node or primitive streak of human body, he says in this context: "The first phase of the nervous system begins to appear after the formation of primitive node which appears since the fifteenth day of conception." Then he adds: "Since the appearance of the first node and its extensive activity, the following developments take place: 1 – The appearance of notochord (or dorsal nerve cord, or primitive spinal column) that extends towards the head from the primary node or primitive steak. 2– After the initial appearance of the node, the embryonic disk turns into the shape of a pear so both ends could be distinguished; the wider end is called “Head Side” while the thin end is called the “Caudal Side” or the tail side.   3 - Then the nervous system starts to appear...” Furthermore, Dr. Muhammad `Ali Al Barr continued his explanation under the title of (Fate of the First Node) and added saying: "The first node -as we have said- is very important; because its extensive activities lead to the formation of notochord (or the spinal column) and forms the interior middle layer or what is called (the Mesoderm) which condenses on the side of the axis forming the fetus. Whenever the first node completes its mission during the fourth week it begins to emaciate and remains hidden in the sacrococcygeal region of the foetus, then in the baby and afterwards it disappears totally except its small remnant part which could not be seen with the naked eye. And the Prophet (may the peace and the blessings of Allah be upon him) also pointed out that nothing of human body remains safe except the coccyx bone."   For more details visit : http://www.alssunnahnet.com/en/articles.aspx?article_no=3137
