"And when the wild beasts are gathered together." (81:5)


Nobody could ever imagine that one day wild beasts shall be captured, tamed and put together in closed and open parks. The establishment of zoo have fulfilled this prophecy.


Rebuttal[edit]

Here it is in context:

When the wild beasts are herded together (in the human habitations);

When the oceans boil over with a swell;

When the souls are sorted out, (being joined, like with like);

﴿وَإِذَا الْوُحُوشُ حُشِرَتْ ﴾

(And when the wild beasts are gathered together.) meaning, gathered. This is as Allah says,

﴿وَمَا مِن دَآبَّةٍ فِى الاٌّرْضِ وَلاَ طَائِرٍ يَطِيرُ بِجَنَاحَيْهِ إِلاَّ أُمَمٌ أَمْثَـلُكُمْ مَّا فَرَّطْنَا فِى الكِتَـبِ مِن شَىْءٍ ثُمَّ إِلَى رَبِّهِمْ يُحْشَرُونَ ﴾

(There is not a moving creature on earth, nor a bird that flies with its two wings, but are communities like you. We have neglected nothing in the Book, then unto their Lord they shall be gathered.) (6:38) Ibn `Abbas said, "Everything will be gathered, even the flies. This statement was recorded by Ibn Abi Hatim. Allah also says,


Conclusion[edit]

Not a fulfilled prophecy, and the quote is taken out of context.
