And if you obey most of those on earth, they will mislead you far away from Allah's Path. They follow nothing but conjectures, and they do nothing but lie. Surah Al An’am, Verse 116.

Newton himself denying the theory of universal gravitation:

“Tis inconceivable that inanimate brute matter should (without the mediation of something else which is not material) operate upon & affect other matter without mutual contact; as it must if ‘gravitation’ in the sense of Epicurus be essential & inherent in it. And this is one reason why I desired you would not ascribe {innate} ‘gravity’ to me. That ‘gravity’ should be innate inherent & {essential} to matter so that one body may act upon another at a distance through a vacuum without the mediation of any thing else by & through which their action or force {may} be conveyed from one to another is to me so great an absurdity that I believe no man who has in philosophical matters any competent faculty of thinking can ever fall into it. ‘Gravity’ must be caused by an agent {acting} constantly according to certain laws, but whether this agent be material or immaterial is a question I have left to the consideration of my readers.” – Isaac Newton – Richard Bentley “189.R.4.47, ff. 7-8, Trinity College Library, Cambridge, UK, 1692” End of quote.

Newton himself was not convinced fully with gravity and had his own doubts... Somehow the modern atheistic scientists found a convenient scape goat - gravity, to explain away God... which is quite unfortunate. Lets read below the view of some prominent researchers.

Professor W.B Carpenter, in his paper, "Nature and Law," Published in the "Modern Review" for October, 1890 says":

“The 1st of the great achievements of Newton in relation to our present subjects, WAS A PIECE OF PURELY GEOMETRICAL REASONING. ASSUMING, two forces to act on a body, of which one should be capable of imparting to it uniform motion in a straight line, whilst the other should attract it towards a fixed point in accordance with Galileo’s Law of Gravity, he demonstrated that the path of the body would be deflected into a curve……

The Idea of continuous onward motion in a straight line, as the result of an original Impulsive force not antagonized or affected by any other-formulated by Newton as his first “Law if Motion”-Is not borne out by any acquired experience, and does not seem likely to be ever this verified. For in no experiment we have it in our power to make, can we entirely eliminate the antagonizing effects of friction and atmospheric resistance; and thus all movement that is subject to this retardation, and is not sustained by any fresh action of the impelling force, must come to an end. Hence the conviction commonly entertained that Newton’s first Law of motion must be true, CANNOT BE PHILOSOPHICALLY ADMITTED TO BE ANYTHING MORE THAN A PROBABILITY….. WE HAVE NO PROOF, AND IN THE NATURE OF THINGS CAN NEVER GET ONE, OF THE ASSUMPTION OF THE ATTRACTIVE FORCE EXERTED BY THE EARTH, OR BY ANY OF THE BODIES OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM, UPON OTHER BODIES AT A DISTANCE. Newton himself strongly felt that the IMPOSSIBILITY OF RATIONALLY ACCOUNTING FOR ACTION at a distance through an intervening vacuum, was the weak point of HIS system…… Now, in regard to Sun’s attraction for the earth and planets, WE HAVE NO CERTAIN EXPERIENCE AT ALL………. THE DOCTRINE OF UNIVERSAL GRAVITATION THEN, IS A PURE ASSUMPTION”. End of quote

The Following extracts are taken from “A Million of Facts, by Sir Richard Phillips:
“…..It(Gravity) is a principle never to be lost sight of, that circular motion is a necessary result of equal action and reaction in contrary directions; for the harmony would be disturbed by variations of distance, if the motion were rectilinear. The same action and reaction are therefore only to be preserved by reciprocal circular motion. No attraction and no projectile circular force are therefore necessary. THEIR INVENTION MUST BE REGARDED AS BULNDERS OF A SUPERSTITIOUR AGE”………“It is waste of time to break a butterfly on a wheel, but as ASTRONOMY AND ALL SCIENCE IS BESET WITH FANCIES ABOUT ATTRACTION AND REPULSION, IT IS NECESSARY TO ERADICATE THEM”. End of quote.

Thomas Winship, writes in Zetetic Cosmogony, Page 36:

“The ‘Law of Gravitation’, is said by the advocates of the Newtonian system of Astronomy, to be the greatest discovery of science, and the foundation of the whole of modern Astronomy. If, therefore it can be shown that Gravitation IS A PURE ASSUMPTION, AND AN IMAGINATION OF THE MIND ONLY, that it has no existence outside of the brains of its expounders and advocates, the whole of the hypotheses of this modern ‘so-called’ science falls to the ground as flat as the surface of the ocean, and this “Most exact of all the sciences,” this wonderful “feat of the Intellect”, becomes at once the most RIDICULOUS SUPERSTITION and the most Gigantic IMPOSTURE to which IGNORANCE AND CREDULITY could ever be exposed”. End of quote.

From the above quotes, we must understand that the theory of Gravity is the foundation & soul of the heliocentric model. The above quotes are only a few from equally or more intellectuals than Newton or Galileo. When gravity had been opposed so radically., NOT by religious circles, but by scientific circles themselves, how come none of such opposition ever reached out texts books?Its a clear conspiracy ensuring the establishment of the atheistic cosmological model.

The History behind Metaphysics entering the Islamic world...

Sa’idAmdalusi writes in TabaqatulUmam, (Page 47),
“…That Al Ma’mun: “Called for the works of Greek Philosophers from the Kings of Greece who sent him the books written by Plato, Aristotle, Hippocrates, Galen, Euclid, Ptolemy & others. Al Ma’mun translated into Arabic & encouraged scholars to study them. During his reign those works became quite popular which helped to produce many an ardent admirer of Philosophy among the young & Intelligent scholars of his time…..”. End of quote
SayyedAbul Hassan Ali Nadwi (Rah), quotes in his ‘Life &Achievements of IbnTaymiyyah,

“The Translate of Greek Scientific & Philosophical works into Arabic began shortly after the establishment of the Abbasid Caliphate, during the reign of Caliph Mansur. Numerous Philosophical terms used by the Mu’tazilites of this period in their writing show that they were fully conversant with the works of the Greek Philosophers…….

…….by the end of 4th Century, a greater part of the Philosophical & Scientific Literature of the Greeks was made available in Arabic…… The works of Aristotle were studied by the Arabs with especial Zeal. The Traditions of Greek Philosophy among the Arabs thus came to be associated with Aristotle who was seen as the Mark & Symbol & who was Invested with an aura of Infallibility. It was Indeed a misfortune for the Islamic East that its choice fell towards a Philosopher who, of all the Greek Masters, was an ardent supporter of the objective existence of the material world, its Primacy & Eternity….”. (Page 91-93). End of quote .

IbnTaymiyyah(Rah) further said;“The Philosophers brining their Mind to bear upon Physics, show their Mettle (Courage), but in Metaphysics (Theoretical Physics), they appear to be unenlightened folk without knowledge of what constitutes the truth. Very little of metaphysics has been handed down from Aristotle & even that contains numerous faulty concept”. (Ma’arijulWusul, Majmuaarrasa’il Al-Kubra, Page 186)

He further said in NaqdUlMantiq(Page 178), “Some of the greatest philosophers have clearly stated that there is no way known to them to reach the certitude of knowledge in matters pertaining to Metaphysics. The utmost claim that they make is that whatever they say is nearer to reason. This, obviously, means that the Philosophers have nothing but Conjecture & presumptions with which to solve Metaphysical (Theoretical) Riddles; but, as the Quran declares, “They follow nothing but Conjecture & conjecture avails nothing against Truth”. (An:Najm – 53:28) End of quote.

IbnTaymiyyah (Rah) further said, “When an Educated person makes a close study of the Aristotelian Metaphysics, he reaches the conclusion that there was none more Ignorant of the Gnosis of GOD than these Philosophers”. End of quote

When IbnTaymiyyah encountered certain Muslim Thinkers trying to compare Greek Metaphysics with the teachings & knowledge obtained through the Prophets, he (Rah) said, “Such comparison were no better than an effort to establish analogy between a Blacksmith and an Angel or between a petty Landlord & and Emperor”. (Ar-RaddAlal-Mantiqiyin, Page 395) End of quote

On the observance of Natural Phenomenon & Cause and Effect, IbnTaymiyyah (Rah) Asserted,“The Philosophers are absolutely unfamiliar with the Unseen realities taught by the Prophets as also with those comprehensive natural Laws which envelop all beings & creations & whose knowledge could have helped them to correctly categorize all existing things…… The Philosophers have little knowledge of Mathematics & the Laws related to it, This, infact, shows their comprehension of just a small part of the general causes & principles of natural Phenomenon. But the existence of beings & causes not known to man far exceed that of which he has any knowledge…”. (Life &Achivements of IbnTaymiyyah, by SayyedAbul Hassan Ali Nadwi, Page 98-99) End of quote

On the relationship between Cosmology & Occult Science, IbnTaymiyyah(Rah) writes, “The ancient Greeks were a heathen people keenly interested in sorcery. THEY WORSHIPPED IDOLS ALONG WITH THE STARS & THAT IS WHY THEY TURNED TO ASTRONOMY. It was because of their BELIEF IN OCCULT INFLUENCE OF THE STARS upon the human beings that they built numerous temples for star worship. Many of their ancient & later priests promoted Idolatrous practices. They called the stars as lesser Gods & prescribed different religious rites for their worship. Those among the Muslims who have taken to their ways neither forbid polytheistic practices nor consider the unity of Godhead as an essential part of one’s faith”. (Naqdul-Mantiq, Page 177) End of quote

On his Warning against Muslim Philosophers who have taken much from Greek Philosophy, IbnTaymiyyah(Rah) said, “The Philosophical concepts adopted by Al-Farabi (Alpharabius), IbnSina (Avicenna), IbnRushd (Averroes) &Suharwardi were wholly borrowed from Aristotle whom these Philosophers have named as the “First Teacher”. (Ar-RaddAlal-Bakri, Page 206).
