Hazrat Nooh ki Kashti Mein Kitne Janwar Sawar Thay - Javed Ahmed Ghamidi

  • 0:01 - 0:04
    Did Prophet Noah's Ark contain all the
    animals?
  • 0:05 - 0:09
    [Hassan Ilyas] We have usually seen that
    in some Ayats of Quran-e-Majeed
  • 0:09 - 0:10
    on which people raise
    intellectual doubts
  • 0:10 - 0:12
    so among them this one
    is a very prominent Ayat
  • 0:12 - 0:14
    that in Syedna Nuh's (AS) ark
  • 0:14 - 0:17
    a pair of every creature was kept
  • 0:17 - 0:19
    People ask that how was the ship so large
  • 0:19 - 0:20
    that it had room for all the creatures
  • 0:20 - 0:21
    and then the details of that incident
  • 0:22 - 0:23
    What is the issue here?
  • 0:23 - 0:24
    What does Quran-e-Majeed say?
  • 0:24 - 0:26
    and if there is anything that seems
    against our experience,
  • 0:26 - 0:28
    then how will be the interpretation made?
  • 0:28 - 0:29
    [Javed Ahmed Ghamidi] This is actually
  • 0:29 - 0:32
    a result of unfamiliarity with
    the style of language.
  • 0:32 - 0:35
    Not only in Arabic language but
    in our own language as well.
  • 0:35 - 0:37
    As we say that 'everything'
  • 0:37 - 0:40
    it always occurs in relation to
    one's situation and occasion
  • 0:40 - 0:42
    If I am changing my house
  • 0:42 - 0:44
    and I have given you the
    responsibility to look after it
  • 0:44 - 0:46
    so if I come out and say
  • 0:46 - 0:48
    "Why sir, you have taken out everything?"
  • 0:48 - 0:51
    so here by everything do I intend
    to mean everything in the world?
  • 0:51 - 0:53
    that is, the occasion on
    which it is being said
  • 0:53 - 0:55
    so the region where he was
  • 0:55 - 0:58
    the animals that were required
    for their daily needs
  • 0:58 - 0:59
    a great flood was coming
  • 1:00 - 1:01
    and it is obvious that
  • 1:01 - 1:03
    when the flood water reached
    the mountain tops
  • 1:03 - 1:05
    so this means that
  • 1:05 - 1:07
    if we look in the context of the
    circumstances of that period
  • 1:08 - 1:10
    that is, no planes would come flying in
  • 1:10 - 1:11
    helicopters won't come flying in
  • 1:11 - 1:13
    How far it could have spread?
  • 1:14 - 1:18
    Hence, there was apprehension about
    how would they restart their lives later
  • 1:19 - 1:21
    that is, everything would be destroyed
  • 1:21 - 1:24
    therefore, it was said that the animals
    that are required for daily needs
  • 1:24 - 1:25
    they should be kept
  • 1:25 - 1:27
    because during those times one
    would rely on these very things
  • 1:27 - 1:29
    if the the land has become arid
  • 1:29 - 1:31
    if any crop needs to be sown
    or tree has to be planted
  • 1:31 - 1:34
    in any case, Allah ta'la will provide
    the resources to do so
  • 1:34 - 1:37
    but animals as well were
    necessities for human life
  • 1:37 - 1:39
    so it is being said about those animals
  • 1:39 - 1:41
    it does not at all relate to this notion
  • 1:41 - 1:43
    that the animals from the entire
    world should be gathered
  • 1:43 - 1:44
    and then after that
  • 1:44 - 1:47
    such a huge ark then can only be
    modeled after the entire landmass
