Initial gaseous mass before creation of galaxies

Scienties agree that before the galaxies in the universe were formed, celestial matter was initially in the form of gasseous matter. In short, huge gaseous matter or clouds were present before the formation of the galaxies. To describe initial celestial matter, the word 'smoke' is more appropriate than gas. The following Quranic verse refers to this state of the universe by the word 'dukhaan' which means smoke.

Moreover, He comprehended in His design the sky, and it had been (as) smoke: He said to it and to the earth: come you together, willingly or unwillingly. (Quran, 41:11)
