According to a tradition, narrated from Prophet (P.B.U.H) the contemplation of Just a moment regarding the Universe is better than the service of one year (and according to some other traditionalists: Sixty Years).
Therefore, those who went deep into the elements of the Universe, or say: into the creation of the humans of the Universe, they were blessed with unprecedented success, and those, on the contrary, who swerved from the line of Profuse thinking, they were categorized in dead and bygone nations.
The significance of contemplation regarding the Genesis of Universe may be appreciated through this fact that the Holy Quran invites the attention of the mankind repeatedly towards the said contemplation, and that all the things, created by Allah the earth and skies. are not for a mere exhibition, but even a smallest particle of the universe is indicative of a particular Divine interest or sapience.
The Holy Quran contains (726) such contexts which exhort the intelligentsia of mankind to study the universe. Our tragedy is that we concentrated all our attention upon the acknowledgment of monotheism, observation of the fast and offering the prayers, payment of the religious tax (Zakath) and performance of pilgrimage, and the other sensitive matters, incorporated in the Holy Quran, were left by us untackled, and no proper importance was attached to the saying of the Prophet (P.B.U.H) that the contemplation of a moment regarding the universe was better than the service of one year, but quite unfortunately we are adamant not to unleash the reins of thoughts.
Allah, in the Surah of "the Cow", says:
"Of course, the creation of the skies and the earth and alternation of night and day, and the ships which sail over the sea to benefit the mankind, and the water, which Allah poured down from the sky and resuscitated thereby the earth after it was dead, and dispersed all kinds of beast thereon, and the mobilization of the winds and clouds, hanging between the sky and earth, have many tokens for those who are wise".
And in the Surah of "Family of IMRAN" He says:
"Of course, the creation of the skies and the earth and alternation of night and day have many tokens for men of wisdom, who mention Allah while they are standing and sitting and leaning on their beds and contemplate on the creation of skies and earth (saying:) our Lord: you have not created this in vain. Glory be to you: protect us from the torment of the fire".
And in the Surah of Romans, He Says:
"And among His tokens is the creation of skies and the earth and the diversity of your languages and colours. Verily this bears portents for the knowledgeable".
In the Surah of Yousuf, He says in a warning tone:
"How many portents are in the skies and the earth which they pass by while they are indifferent to them".
And in the Surah of Saba, He directs an open threat to these negligent:
"Have they not seen What is before them and what is behind them of the sky and the earth. It is to our direction to hurry them by landslide or to pour down upon them some fragments from the sky. This has undoubtedly a portent for every obsequious bondsman".
This warning has come in a clearer form in the Surah of "AARAF" (Heights) where Allah says:
"Have they not seen in the dominion of the skies and the earth and in every thing, created by Allah and that their turn may have reared".
We beat, round the clock, a drum of this pretension that we are Muslims, destined to the heritage of the paradise, and that we are the catchment areas of the torrential rains of Divine blessing, and that our lockers are thronged with the rewards, while the fact is quite inverse because we, as a nation, are bereft of everything. We claim vociferously that we believe in Quran, and do not allow our minds to think what is the criteria of Belief in view of Quran?
Quran unequivocally directs us that there are so many facts and portents in the earth and skies for the believers. This means that the hallmark of a believer is that he carries on an in-depth study of the realities of the earth and skies and the creational equations therein and their meticulous observation unmasks the system of Galaxies.
Quran repeatedly declares that these portents do belong to those who believe. It implies that these portents, though they are common, but to consider their properties and craftsmanship is the sheer share of the believers only, and those common populace who are wrapped up in the abyssal ignorance and adamant obduracy. making their life in animal fashion, not lending their ears to any advise, they are quite unable to capitalize on these portents so their existence and non-existence are equal to such pugnacious and bellicose persons.
A person, blind by birth, may not enjoy the beauty and picturesque greenery of a park. Likewise, those who remain devoid of sight and discernment, are unable to perceive the natural panoramic views.
Therefore Quran declares in very explicit words:
"Say: "We are Muslims" and as far as "Belief" is concerned, it has not made its way to your hearts".

Dedicated to those scientists, who are inching towards the cognizance of the facts, spotlighted by Allah Almighty, in the wake of their intelligent observation for the top vertex of scientific achievement, which is not other than the "Disastrous end of the Universe". And this is probably during 15th century of Lunar calendar.
