The Jinn and the Dark Shadow Matter Universe Theory

By Shamveel Quraishi


Dark Matter


Dark MatterPhysicists 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).

The Shadow Matter Universe Theory


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.

Points Regarding Dark Matter:


1.There is an imbalance in the equations of the "big bang", and 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 extra mass.

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 If dark matter exists then the universe will end.

What Do Muslims Believe?


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 cannot...?).

Prophet Suleiman ('a)


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 Omega Point 


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.

Expansion of the Universe


And Allah says in the Holy Qur'an:

"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

Summary on the Jinn:


  1. They live in the Unseen World.

  2. They can move very fast.

  3. They were created before mankind

  4. Their existence is predicted in the "big bang" theory and

  5. Their presence ultimately is required for the end of the universe, etc...
