Science and Religion in Islam: The Link.: 2 intellectual giants speak to each other accross a millenium on “time”: can it be slowed, sped up, reversed, transcended? Ask Einstein and Nasir Khusraw
Easy Nash thought it might stimulate our readership to consider modern discoveries about time in the light of what our cosmologists thought about time a thousand years ago and he uses the discoveries of two intellectual giants from a thousand years apart as examples, Albert Einstein and Nasir Khusraw.
It is fitting to quote the following, which describes the proper place of “time” in creation from an Islamic perspective and the need to be cognisant of all types of knowledge with a committment to independent thinking:
“The creation according to Islam is not a unique act in a given time but a perpetual and constant event; and God supports and sustains all existence at every moment by His will and His thought. Outside His will, outside His thought, all is nothing, even the things which seem to us absolutely self-evident such as space and time. Allah alone wishes: the Universe exists; and all manifestations are as a witness of the Divine Will” (Memoirs of Aga Khan III, 1954)
