The Smoke Quran 41:11

7 min read

Then He directed Himself to the heaven while it was smoke and said to it and to the earth, “Come [into being], willingly or by compulsion.” They said, “We have come willingly.”

According to Muhmmad Asad, the term ‘smoke’ means:

“I.e., a gas – evidently hydrogen gas, which physicists regard as the primal element from which all material particles of the universe have evolved and still evolve” (The Message of the Quran, pg. 932)
