Jinn and the Dark Shadow Matter Universe Theory
Physicists have found out that over 90% of the mass of the
universe is in the form of invisible matter. This matter does not
interact with light or rather does not radiate light and hence can
not be detected directly, but does have a gravitational effect.
Therefore it is called "dark matter".
It is indeed, a strange form of matter/energy. The remarkable
thing is now, physicists have come to the conclusion that there is
a great Unseen World that we do not have access to.
Physicists theorize that perhaps there is a whole universe out
there, coinciding exactly in time and space with our own, but
different and not physically interacting (but may be in other
ways, strange ways of course).
This theory is known as The Shadow Matter Universe theory, and
some theoretical physicists argue that it is likely that this
universe has its own rules of physics that would appear strange to
us, and that there are probably people and civilizations dwelling
in this universe, maybe similar to our own. Of course these
creatures would be strange and be able to do things we can't do,
as their universe follows some
different laws from our own. Whether they can see us, is of
course an unanswerable question at the moment.
1.There is an imbalance in the equations of the "big
this can be solved by postulating that just before the splitting
of the singular mass that caused
the "big bang", there was an earlier splitting, that created the
dark matter. That is to say that dark matter had to be created before our own form
of matter came into existence. This is required by the equations
of relativity and the big bang.
Hence, if dark matter came into existence before our own
matter, it is conceivable that the shadow matter universe
developed earlier than ours and is far more ancient.
Interestingly, Allah (swt) tells us in the Quran that the jinn were
created before mankind.
2. Also, if the dark matter actually exists, then this universe
will ultimately collapse because of the gravitational effect
caused by the presence of this
Imagine a small child sitting on a chair. The chair is strong
and won't collapse. But what if there was a heavy set invisible
man also sitting on the chair ?
Sooner or later it is bound to collapse..ie If dark matter exists
then the universe will end.
We as Muslims, all believe that this universe will ultimately
come to an end. This is one of our fundamental beliefs.
One of my own ideas about why dark matter is dark is that this
form of energy is made of super luminal waves (ie moves faster
than light, hence light cannot
interact with it, ie light, is always trying to catch-up but
Interestingly, when Prophet Suleiman
('a) asks the jinn to
accomplish a task, the jinn says that he will do it.
Quicker than the twinkling of an eye,
or rather, quicker than the light will reach his eye....or
something very close to that effect.
And Allah swt says in
the Holy Qur'an:
"Said one who had knowledge Of the Book :
" I will Bring it to thee within
The twinkling of an eye !"
This means that the jinn are not bound by the same laws that we
are, and can move very, very fast, perhaps faster than light and
when matter (if matter)
can move faster than light, many strange things can happen.
It seems that our histories and futures with this universe are
very intimately intertwined.
The ideas for dark matter and shadow matter universe are
explained in renowned Astrophysicist John Gribbin's book, "
The Omega Point". There are quite a few
books now available on dark matter.
Though at the moment some are saying that the scientists have
found out that the universe is flat and will expand forever and
never collapse, however there are a lot of camps and schools of
thought and we haven't heard the last of this story.
And Allah says in the
"And the universe, we constructed with power and skill and
verily we are expanding it."
What struck me though, was the remarkable similarities between
the basic Islamic concept of Jinn and this Dark Matter Universe
They live in the Unseen
They can move very fast.
They were created before mankind
Their existence is predicted in the "big bang" theory and
Their presence ultimately is required for the end of the
