This is a great discovery; it helps us understand the wisdom of God even more. First of all, we are proud of the contributions of a Muslim scientist Dr. Abdus Salam in this discovery, may God bless his soul. Indeed, we are proud of every Scientist, Doctor, Engineer, Astronomer and others who have contributed towards the well being of humanity, the works is as divine as the work of theologians.
Science does not contradict religion, but simply seeks to understand the logic behind God’s wisdom. God wants us to seek knowledge, and declares that the best among us are the ones who knows. Knowledge leads to understanding and understanding to appreciation of the creation and the creator.
God is not a being, not a thing, not a male or a female, per Islam it is the noor, a system, and the closest word to describe is Life energy, however, no word can fully describe the creator. The God particle is just a name to an element that the creator embedded in every life form.
There is a formula out there that replicates the regeneration process in all species, which Darwin thought was an anomaly that became an established pattern. So this creator God sprinkled this particle which has carried the world forward, this God particle has helped in ensuring that the species continue in each format they have evolved.
It is fascinating; I hope to learn more about it.
Someday, we may genuinely earn the title of Ashraful Mukhlookhat; most informed beings, most self sustainable beings… God wants us to learn more, the more we know the closer we get to the Creator. We will find in tune with the creation and the creator.
My mother use to recite a poetry which ran something like this, isn’t it amazing the things that were meaningless to us once, become meaningful as we grow? I thank my mother for showering that wisdom on me.
Banday ko khuda mat kaho, banda khuda nahin
Lekin phir bhi, khuda say juda banda nahin.
(Don’t call the created (humans) the creator, the created is not the creator)
However, the creator and created are not different entities.
Some Muslims will not agree with this, however when God talks about being closer to us than our jugular vein, and then, when someone achieves closeness to God, to be God like, he or she achieves the Taqwa.
The faith of Scientist and Doctors could be stronger than the theologians; one sees God’s work every day, whereas the other believes. Taqwa meter will perhaps give more points to the ones who know and who learn.
Thank Hasni Essa for posting sharing the following article and Muhammad Irtaza for adding the verses from Quran. I was intrigued by the source of his translation about Concave Mirror, so I looked up; it’s a niche or mehrab in Asad’s translation.
24:35 (Asad) God is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The parable of His light is, as it were,  that of a niche containing a lamp; the lamp is [enclosed] in glass, the glass [shining] like a radiant star: [a lamp] lit from a blessed tree - an olive-tree that is neither of the east nor of the west  the oil whereof [is so bright that it] would well-nigh give light [of itself] even though fire had not touched it: light upon light! God guides unto His light him that wills [to be guided];  and [to this end] God propounds parables unto men, since God [alone] has full knowledge of all things. 
God is the light of the heavens and the earth.
[24:35] GOD is the light of the heavens and the earth. The allegory of His light is that of a concave mirror behind a lamp that is placed inside a glass container. The glass container is like a bright, pearl-like star. The fuel thereof is supplied from a blessed oil-producing tree, that is neither eastern, nor western. Its oil is almost self-radiating; needs no fire to ignite it. Light upon light. GOD guides to His light whoever wills (to be guided). GOD thus cites the parables for the people. GOD is fully aware of all things.
The light of God is so powerful that a flash of it caused a mountain to crumble. The light of God cannot be seen with our eyes.
[7:143] When Moses came at our appointed time, and his Lord spoke with him, he said, "My Lord, let me look and see You." He said, "You cannot see Me. Look at that mountain; if it stays in its place, then you can see Me." Then, his Lord manifested Himself to the mountain, and this caused it to crumble. Moses fell unconscious. When he came to, he said, "Be You glorified. I repent to You, and I am the most convinced believer."
God is not physically present in our material world. The so-called "God particle" is not part of God. It is created by God. Our limited knowledge cannot grasp the greatness of God.
[39:67] They can never fathom the greatness of GOD. The whole earth is within His fist on the Day of Resurrection. In fact, the universes are folded within His right hand. Be He glorified; He is much too high above needing any partners.
Thank you and May God guide me,
First, it was Charles Darwin whose Origin of Species took us back 10,000 years. Now this "God particle" theory takes us back 14 billion years when universe supposedly was created.
Higgs boson: Seeing God in a flash
The “God particle" Atom smashers The Big Bang
Kim Kardashian, eat your heart out. Today, the water cooler chatter is all about theoretical and particle physicists, of all unlikely pop icons. And Peter Higgs, an 83-year-old Scots scientist, in particular
After much feverish speculation physicists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research have lit up the world of science by chasing down one of the universe's most elusive building blocks, the "Higgs boson" that holds a key to creation as we know it.
Dubbed 'the God particle, " (as well as the goddamn particle" because it was so hard to find), it has long been a Holy Grail to what's known as the Standard Model of physics, our best guess at how the universe works. Until now it has been a theoretical particle. No longer
The organisation’s director Rolf Heuer confirmed Wednesday that "we have observed a new particle that is consistent with a "Higgs boson." That's science-speak for "Break out the bubbly, we have found the little bugger" after smashing trillions of hapless protons together in the Large Hadron Collider, and scouring the wreckage for bosons.
Did the researchers witness God's handiwork in a "Higgs like" particle's flash? Who can say for sure? They still have worlds of dark matter, dark energy, super symmetry, anti-matter and gravity to explore.
The Great Architect may yet have a few surprises up her sleeve.
But, by replicating the first moment of the Big Bang some 14 billion years ago, scientists believe they have finally created, identified and tracked a Higgs boson, first postulated by Higgs and others nearly a half century ago to explain how matter came to have mass.
Once the Big Bang occurred, so the theory went, it quickly produced our universe - full of particles that had no mass, and radiation energy. A short trillionth of a second later a "Higgs field" appeared, with the Higgs bason, its own quantum particle. The field functioned like a cosmic field of snow. .When other particles such as quarks and electrons passed through it they gained mass. They slowed down and eventually formed the atoms that comprise the world that is us. The Higgs bason was the smallest and most elusive particle in the mix.
It has taken a lifetime to find something that looks for all the world like the Higgs bason, but we ‘are closer now to gasping how the Big Bang's big mess became the whirl of galaxies that we see today. Whole new vistas of science beckon. As Sean Carroll, a California Institute of Technology physicist puts it, “the fun has just begun."
