Who made Newton Laws?

Gravity - Final scene

I searched Google the above question. I found 34,00,000 links. I glanced many of these articles, and they were all WRONG!

The importance of Newton Laws is that they govern everything stationary or moving on earth.

Stephen Hawking considers the Big Bang as a model that places limits on when and how God might have been carrying his job! On page 9, of his book "A Brief History of Time", (1988), Hawking wrote:

"An expanding universe does not preclude a creator, but it does place limits on when he might have carried out his job!"

The late Carl Sagan of Cornell University of New York wrote in the introduction of this book:

"Hawking is attempting, as he explicitly states, to understand the mind of God. And this makes all the more unexpected conclusion of the effort, at least so far: a universe with no edge in space, no beginning or no end in time and nothing for a Creator to do."

The above statement is elaborated in the same book on page 141.

Sagan’s idea is analogous to the creation story in Genesis that God created the universe in six days and then rested in the seventh day. The suggestion here according to Hawking and Sagan that the seventh day was so long that it started right after the Big Bang and God was still resting and has nothing to do

In Stephen Hawking’s latest book with Leonard Mlodinow, (2010, p. 180), "The Grand Design," they wrote "Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing. Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist….It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the universe going." So, they introduce the approach of "God-not-required" to the question of our existence, so long we have gravity! They fail to answer the five basic questions on gravity: who, why, what, where and when. The simple question of who made the gravity has no answer in their book.

The news media often ask scientists how science can be reconciled with religion. A better question would be how could anyone with some knowledge of science avoid watching the overwhelming evidences of One God?

Humans managed to divide science into three main categories:

Physical: such as physics, chemistry and engineering.

Biological: such as medicine, embryology, botany and zoology.

Sociological: such as psychology, economics, anthropology and history.

However, the great scientific pioneers in the human’s history could not really be classified as physicist, biologists, or sociologists. Most of them had knowledge in many branches of science. An inspiring list of those pioneers includes Newton, Galileo, Al-battani (Albatenius) and Ibn Sina. Without exception, true scientists were devout religious people. They simply understood that science would never have answers to all complex questions.

At present, in trying to deal with the enormous scientific and spiritual information that is available to us, it may help to abandon the above categorization of science and put the above three categories under a new name called Evidence of God! Or attach the Name of God to all branches of science such as physics of God, biology of God, etc. If we do that, the simplest physical law, biological and sociological phenomenon can then make sense. Asking questions about: who, why and how can then have one answer and one answer only. Some scientists are limiting their creativity by rejecting the concept of God. If scientists make it their business to uncover some of God’s Grand Design, humanity will enjoy a much greater scientific achievements, paralleled only to the great scientific advances that Islam inspired in the Middle Ages.

This would certainly require a major overhaul in the entire educational system. Teachers would be required to be more inspirational. Books would have to be rewritten to include the thoughts of the scientific pioneers and not merely their works without any human attachments. This would change the life of physicists, biologists, engineers, botanists and all other professionals. Every simple physical law, biological test or analysis is approached within the framework of the Grand Design. If that happens, the entire human family would be in a state of submission to the Will of God. That is what Islam is all about.

The attitude of Islam towards continuous knowledge and scientific development is quite remarkable. As a matter of fact, the first word revealed in the Quran was "Read." It was an order from the Creator to the Muslims to seek true knowledge because this is the only way to achieve an appreciation for the Glory and Greatness of God. With this order, science took on an international character in the Islamic universities of the Middle Ages. During that time, Muslims had a great advantage because the Quran inspired the Muslims to study the sky and the earth to find proof for their faith. Muhammad encouraged the Muslims to seek knowledge from the cradle to the grave, no matter if their search took them as far as China. Studying is considered an act of worshipping God. It is an established fact that scientific upsurge by Muslims came as a result of religious influence. Anyone who knows something about Islamic history is aware of the period of the Middle Ages, which saw cultural and scientific peaks in the Islamic world.

Now the answer of the above question: Who made Newton Laws? Simply God.
