==Muslim Apologetic Claim==
{{Quote|[ Qur'an and Science: all things in pairs]<BR>Dr. Ibrahim B. Syed, Islamic Research Foundation International, Inc.|PAIRS IN LIVING THINGS
The Qur’aan here says that everything is created in pairs, including things that the humans do not know at present and may discover later.}}
Some Muslims apologists also claim the mere existence of antimatter complements to matter, without regard to their relative abundance (matter dominates in our universe after the first second post the Big Bang) proves the validity of the ‘creation in pairs’ verses, particularly 43:12, 51:49, and especially 36:36 (as in “pairs of things unknown to them”).<ref>For example, see [{{Reference archive|1=|2=2011-02-14}} here].</ref> The ‘things unknown to them’ part supposedly refers to our modern understanding of particle physics.
The British physicist Paul Dirac, who discovered that matter was created in pairs, won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1933. This finding, known as "parity," revealed the duality known as matter and antimatter. Antimatter bears the opposite characteristics to matter. For instance, contrary to matter, antimatter electrons are positive and protons negative.
