Abstract

Abstract There has been a lot, more than enough, talks, readings and writings on the axiomic (i.e Qadiyyah musallamah) scientific causative agent(s), from non-Muslim and Muslims alike. Much has also been said from an Islamic and a Muslim perspective. But the question remains whether or not the notion is totally rejected from the Qur’anic point of view, or it is totally approved. This paper will discuss the notion, which sees the Qur’an as a model for anything and everything. Philosophy, Sciences, Technology, and Religion unanimously agree that anything and everything must have a cause, and hence all ‘causeds’ must have a source; philosophy is yet to substantively satisfy our quest, science is still struggling to allay our fears, technology is yet to convince our minds of its danger(s), and religion has not been fully allowed to freely proof its worth, where then lays the ‘causer’, the ‘medium’ and the ‘caused’? The paper will access some scientific notions of the causative agent(s) in the light of the Qur’anic interpretation of such. The major focus of the paper will basically be on those Qur’anic verses and instances, which are of relevance to ‘cause’ and ‘effect’; it will, based on some Scientific presumption and Revelational instructions, submit that ‘the Scientific notion of the causative agent(s) without exploring the religious evidence is unfounded, if not an hoax. Keywords: Causative Agent(s), Cause and Effect, Qadiyyah musallamah (Axioms), Qur’anic Perspective, ScienSophic, Qur’anic.
