Alhamdulillahi wassolatu wassalamu 'ala Rasulillah...

It has been... months since my last post in English. It's only... to write something in English when i'm not accustomed to it, takes double the time writing it in Malay


Alhamdulillah, recently i'm in Forensic & Toxicology round, the "CSI" round.

Well I used to be a fan of CSI, and now I know, to what extend the film makers cheated us just to show how cool their actors are, and how the investigators ellegantly solved the mysterious cases with sophisticated tools in "drive-thru" fast plots


Anyway, during this 2 weeks of Forensic & Toxicology round, one lecture attracted me the most. By Professor Dr. Mohamed Adly on Fingerprints.

Fingerprints or Dactylography is extremely important, especially for medicolegal investigators and police, to identify a living person. It is one of the most dependable method for identification, simply because of 2 facts;

It is unique and constant. The occurence of 2 living person having the same fingerprints is 1 in 64 millions! That is to say, it is almost impossible for 2 person to have the same fingerprints. And your fingerprints will never change by time.

Few years back, I remembered watching one of Dr. Zakir Naik's video(as far as i remembered) on the miracles of al-Quran from scientific point of view. And he quoted 2 verses from Surah Al-Qiyaamah;

"Does man think We shall not put his bones back together?

In fact, We can reshape his very fingertips"

Surah Al-Qiyaamah, verse 3 & 4

Some people asked, "Why fingertips?" "What's so special about our fingertips?"

And Subhanallah, now we know that, there's something special on our fingertips. It is so special to the fact that Allah's ability to reshape the fingertips in The Day Of Resurrection is more superlative than the act of putting human's bones back togehter. MasyaAllah...

And that thing on your fingertips will be some sort of identification method for every human being, that Allah will reshape our fingertips and fingerprints, and we will know then, who is who. So surely no one will escape the Day Of Resurrection because we will be holding our own ID on that day, as our fingerprints are specific for each one of us.

Of course Allah Knows everything. There's no need for fingerprints identification for Allah to know who is Abu, and who is Ali, and who is Kasim and so on... But this is the way to teach human being, especially the ignorants and the unbelievers, tha there is no God but Allah, and Prophet Muhammad SAW is The Messanger fo Allah, and Al-Quran is Kalamullah The Words Of Allah.

And one more thing, this is how Allah teaches us to think. One of the Mukjizat of Al-Quran is, it is The Book Of Guidance, not just a book, not a history book, not a philosophy book, not a literature book, or even a book of science. So, don't just read it blindly, understand the meaning of it, and THINK!

As Dr. Zakir Naik said,

"Al-Quran is a Boof Of Signs, not a book of Science".

As philosophers always say,

"I think, therefore I am"

So, start to think

"Do they not look at the camels, how they are created?

At the heaven, how it was raised high?

At the mountains, how they were set down?

And at the earth, how it was spread out?

So remind, [O Muhammad]; you are only a reminder."

Surah Al-Ghashiah, verse 17-20

That's all, Allahu A'la wa A'lam...

Thanks for reading, as it is the first step in education.
