The Scientific Miracles of the Holy Quran
Quranic Miracles: Fourteen centuries ago, God sent the Al-Quran to mankind as a guide. He encouraged people to be guided by the truth, sticking to this book (Quran). From the day of It's revelation to the day of judgment, this last divine book will remain the only guide for mankind.
The incomparable style of the Qur'an and the highest wisdom in it are definite proof that it is the word of God. In addition, there are many wonderful qualities in the Qur'an that prove that this is a revelation from God. One of these attributes is the fact that a number of scientific truths, which we were able to reveal only with the help of technology of the 20th century, were laid out in the Quran 1400 years ago.
However, the Quran is not a book of science, it is a book of Signs! Many scientific facts, which are expressed in an extremely brief and deep way in his verses, were discovered only with the help of 20th century technology. These facts could not have been known at the time of the revelation of the Quran, and this is further proof that the Quran is the word of Almighty God.
Here are some Miracles Of The Onliy Quran:
The Quran on Mountains (Quranic Miracles)
The book called Earth is the main reference book in many universities around the world. One of the two authors is Professor Emeritus Frank Press. He was the scientific adviser to former US president Jimmy Carter and for 12 years was president of the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, DC. His book says that mountains have roots. These roots are deeply embedded in the ground, so the mountains are peg-shaped (see Figures 1, 2 and 3).
This is how the Qur'an described the mountains. God said in the Quran:
“Did We not make the earth as a bed, and the mountains as pegs?” (Quran 78: 6-7)
Modern earth sciences have shown that mountains have deep roots beneath the surface of the earth (see Figure 3), and that these roots can reach heights several times higher than the ground. Thus, the most appropriate word for describing mountains based on this information is the word "peg", since most of the correctly installed peg is hidden under the surface of the earth. The history of science tells us that the theory of mountains with deep roots was introduced only in the latter half of the nineteenth century.
Mountains also play an important role in stabilizing the earth's crust. They prevent the shaking of the earth. God said in the Quran:
“And He has affixed into the earth mountains standing firm, lest it should shake with you, and rivers and roads, that you may guide yourselves.” (Quran 16:15)
In addition, the modern theory of plate tectonics claims that mountains work as stabilizers for the Earth. This knowledge of the role of mountains as stabilizers of the Earth has only begun to be understood in the framework of plate tectonics since the late 1960s.
Could anyone at the time of the Prophet Mohammed know about the true form of the mountains?
Can anyone imagine that the solid massive mountain that he sees in front of him actually extends deep into the ground and has a root, as scientists say? A large number of books on geology, when it comes to mountains, describes only that part that is above the surface of the earth. This is because these books were not written by geologists. However, modern geology has confirmed the truth of the verses of the Al-Quran.
The Earth's Atmosphere (Quranic Miracles)
“By sky, the owner of the return ...” Quran (86:11)
“Who has made the earth a resting place for you, and the sky as a canopy, and sent down water (rain) from the sky and brought forth therewith fruits as a provision for you. Then do not set up rivals unto Allâh (in worship) while you know (that He Alone has the right to be worshipped).
” Quran (2:22)
In the first verse, the Allah (God) swears by sky, calling him "the owner of the return," but does not specify what is being said about the return. In Islamic dogma, oath by heaven indicates magnitude of importance and proves the power of the Most High and His greatest veracity.
The second verse describes the Heavenly Act of creating the sky as "roofs" for the inhabitants of the earth.
Let's look at what modern atmosphere science is about the meaning and function of the sky.
The word atmosphere means all the airspace surrounding the earth, starting from the surface of the earth and ending with the boundary with outer space. The atmosphere consists of several layers, each of which has a name associated with the processes occurring in it.
Clouds "return" rain to the ground. Explaining the water cycle in nature, the Britanica encyclopedia writes:
“The energy of the sun affects the evaporation of water, both from the water space and from land. The level of evaporation and precipitation, as well as ocean currents and the moisture cycle in the air, depend on solar energy. Above the oceans, the amount of evaporation exceeds the level of precipitation, the wind transports water vapor over the ground, which subsequently falls as precipitation, in other words, it returns to the ground. ”
However, the atmosphere not only returns to the Earth what was already on it, but also reflects into space what can damage the Earth’s flora and fauna. For example, excessive heat radiation. In 1990, the collaboration of NASA, the European Space Agency, and the Space Research and Astronautics Institute of Japan led to the emergence of an international project for the physics of solar-terrestrial relations. The Polar, Wind and Geotail spacecraft are parts of this project that combine resources and scientific communities to jointly explore the space between the Sun and the Earth for a long time. They have a wonderful explanation of how the atmosphere reflects the heat of the sun back into space.
The atmosphere "returns" rain, heat and radio waves, and, moreover, like a roof over your head protects us from deadly cosmic rays, powerful ultraviolet radiation and even meteorites heading towards Earth.
American scientific information channel PSPB (Pennsylvania State Public Broadcasting) reports:
“The sunlight that we see is one group of waves emitted by the sun. X-ray and ultraviolet radiation make up another group. They are absorbed in the upper atmosphere, where a thin gas layer is heated to an incredibly high temperature. Ultraviolet rays can cause burns. Most of them are absorbed by a thick gas layer located close to the Earth and known as the ozone layer. Thus, absorbing the deadly rays of ultraviolet and X-rays, the atmosphere serves as a shield around the Earth; in addition, it maintains the temperature of the planet, like a giant blanket. In addition, the atmosphere protects us from constant shelling of meteoritic bodies, stone particles and dust that move at high speed throughout the solar system. At night, we can see a shooting star; in fact, it is a meteoritic body burning in the atmosphere due to excessive heating. ”
On the protective role of the Stratosphere, the Encyclopedia Britannica says:
“Absorption of ultraviolet rays in the upper region of the stratosphere leads to the decomposition of oxygen molecules. As a result of the recombination of oxygen atoms and O2 molecules, ozone (O3) and the ozone layer arise, which covers the biosphere from the detrimental effect of short-wave radiation. However, due to temperature fluctuations, the ozone layer is depleted, which causes extreme concern. Since it prevents the penetration of ultraviolet rays that cause skin cancer.
The next layer of the atmosphere is the mesosphere. This is where most meteorites burn. Imagine a baseball flying at 30,000 miles per hour. Such is the speed and magnitude of many meteors. Penetrating into the atmosphere, they heat up to temperatures in excess of 3000 degrees Fahrenheit and flare up. A meteor squeezes the air in front of it. The air heats up, and in turn heats the meteor ..
The Earth is surrounded by a magnetic field - a bubble of tens of thousands of kilometers, known in space as the "magnetosphere". It acts as a shield that protects us from the solar wind. However, according to new observations from the IMAGE spacecraft (NASA) and the Cluster satellites (NASA / EC), sometimes huge cracks appear in the magnetosphere and persist for several hours. The solar wind penetrates these cracks and causes a cosmic storm. But, despite these cracks, the surface of the earth is not exposed to the solar wind. The atmosphere protects us, even when the magnetosphere fails.
How could a desert dweller, who lived more than 1,400 years ago, so accurately describe the sky. After all, science has become aware of these facts only recently! There can be only one explanation - a revelation from the Creator was revealed to him the last Prophet Muhammad (saw).
The Quran on Human Embryonic Development (Quranic Miracles)
In the Holy Quran, God thus explains the stages of human embryonic development:
“And indeed We created man (Adam) out of an extract of clay (water and earth).
Thereafter We made him (the offspring of Adam) as a Nutfah (mixed drops of the male and female sexual discharge) (and lodged it) in a safe lodging (womb of the woman).
Then We made the Nutfah into a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood), then We made the clot into a little lump of flesh, then We made out of that little lump of flesh bones, then We clothed the bones with flesh, and then We brought it forth as another creation. So blessed be Allâh, the Best of creators. ”(Quran 23: 12-14)
The Arabic word “alak” has three literal meanings: (1) a leech, (2) a hanging thing, and (3) a blood clot.
Comparing the leech with the embryo at the alak stage, we can notice a similarity between them as can be seen in Fig. 1. In addition, at this stage, the embryo receives nourishment from the mother’s blood, just as the leech feeds on the blood of others.
The second meaning of the word “alak” is “suspended thing”. In fig. 2 and 3 we can see how, at the alak stage, the embryo seems to be suspended in the womb.
The third meaning of the word alak is “blood clot”. It is clearly seen that the appearance of the embryo and embryonic membranes at the alak stage resembles a blood clot due to the fact that at this stage the embryo contains a relatively large amount of blood (see Fig. 4). In addition, at this stage, up to the third week of development, the blood inside the embryo does not circulate.
Thus, all three meanings of the word “alak” correspond exactly to the properties of the embryo at the alak stage. The next stage mentioned in the verse is the mudgha stage. The Arabic word mudga means “something like a chewed mass.” If you take the chewing gum in your mouth and chew, and then compare its appearance with the embryo at the mud stage, we can conclude that at the mud stage, the embryo becomes similar to the chewed mass. This similarity is due to the fact that somites located in the dorsal part of the embryo “to some extent resemble the imprints of teeth on chewed objects” (see Fig. 5 and 6).
How could Muhammad know all this 1400 years ago, if scientists were able to discover these facts only recently and only with the help of sophisticated equipment and powerful microscopes, which simply did not exist in those distant times? Hamm and Leeuwenhoek were the first scientists who were able to see human spermatozoa using an improved microscope in 1677 (more than 1000 years after Muhammad’s death). They mistakenly thought that the sperm cell contained a miniature copy of an already fully formed person, (homunculus), which began to grow in size after hitting the female genitals.
Prominent Professor Keith L. Moore, who is one of the world's most well-known experts in the field of anatomy and embryology, is the author of The Developing Human [Developing Human], which has been translated into eight languages. This book is its author's essay, and the US special committee recognized it as the best book written by one author. Dr. Keith Moore is an honorary professor of anatomy and cell biology at the University of Toronto in Canada. There he was a deputy for a long time.
Dean at the Department of Basic Sciences of the Faculty of Medicine and for 8 years headed the department of anatomy. In 1984, he received the Grant Prize, which was established by the Canadian Anatomical Association and is the most prestigious anatomy award in Canada. Kate Moore led many international organizations, including the Canadian and American Anatomical Associations and the Council of the Union of Biological Sciences.
In 1981, at the Seventh Medical Conference, held in Dammam (Saudi Arabia), Professor Moore stated: “It was my great pleasure to help in explaining what the Quran says about human development. It is obvious to me that these words came to Muhammad from God, because
almost all these facts were discovered only many centuries after that. This serves as proof to me that Muhammad was indeed the messenger of God ” (To see the video click here).
In this regard, Professor Moore was asked the following question: “Does this mean that you believe that the Qur'an is the word of God?” He replied: “I see no reason to prevent it from accepting”
At one of the conferences, Professor Moore stated: “... Since the development of a human embryo is very difficult to break up into stages due to constantly occurring changes, it is proposed to develop a new classification using the terms mentioned in the Qur'an and Sunnah (words, deeds, or approval of Muhammad). The proposed system is simple, comprehensive and coincides with the data of modern embryology. Intensive studies of the Qur'an and the Hadith (reliable stories of the comrades of the Prophet Muhammad about what he said, committed or approved) over the past four years have allowed us to classify the stages of human embryos, which is surprising because it was first described in the seventh century of our era. Although Aristotle (Aristotle), the founder of embryology, found that the development of the chicken embryo occurs in stages back in the fourth century BC, studying the structure of chicken eggs, he did not give a detailed description of these stages. According to the history of embryology, until the twentieth century we knew almost nothing about the stages of development and classification of human embryos. Therefore, descriptions of the human embryo in the Quran could not be based on scientific knowledge available to humans in the seventh century.
The only reasonable explanation for this: this information was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (saw) by God. The Prophet himself could not know such details, since he was an uneducated person and had no scientific experience ” ((To watch the video, click here).
The Quran on the Origin of the Universe (Quranic Miracles)
Modern experimental and theoretical astrophysics considers it absolutely obvious that, up to a certain point, the whole universe was nothing but a cloud of “smoke” (that is, a dark, superdense, heated gaseous substance). This is one of the fundamental principles of modern astrophysics. Nowadays, scientists can observe how new stars are formed from the remnants of this “smoke” (see fig. 1 and 2).
Bright stars that we can see at night, like the whole universe, used to be this very “smoke”. This is what God says about this in the Quran:
“Then He Istawâ (rose over) towards the heaven when it was smoke, and said to it and to the earth: "Come both of you willingly or unwillingly." They both said: "We come, willingly." ” (Quran 41:11)
Since the earth itself and all the sky above it (the sun, moon, stars, planets, galaxies, etc.) were formed from the same “smoke”, we can conclude that the earth and the sky were originally one. And only then, having formed from this homogeneous "smoke", they separated from each other. This is what God says about this in the Quran:
“Have not those who disbelieve known that the heavens and the earth were joined together as one united piece, then We parted them? And We have made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe?” (Quran 21:30)
Dr. Alfred Kroner (Alfred Kroner) is considered one of the world's leading experts in the field of geology. He is a professor and head of the Department of Geology at the Institute of Earth Sciences at Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz (Germany). That's what he said: “Taking into account the origin of Muhammad ... I think it is almost unreal that he could have knowledge of the single origin of the universe, since scientists were able to establish this only in the last few years using the most modern and very complex technological methods” (To watch the video - click here). The scientist also stated: “I doubt that anyone fourteen centuries ago, knowing nothing about nuclear physics, relying solely on his mind, could have come to the conclusion that, for example sky and earth have a common origin. ” (To watch the video - click here).
The Quran on the Cerebrum (Quranic Miracles)
One of the unbelievers who forbade the Prophet Muhammad to pray in the Kaaba, God said:
"Not! If he does not stop, We will take him by the crest (frontal part of the head), by the crest is a lying, sinful one! ”(Quran 96: 15-16)
Why in the Qur'an the frontal part of the head is called deceitful and sinful? Why the Quran does not say that this person is false and sinful? What is the connection between the frontal part of the head, the lie and the sin?
Investigating the structure of the skull in its frontal part of the head, one can detect the superior frontal gyrus of the cerebral cortex (see Fig. 1). What does physiology say about the function of this part of the brain? The book Essentials of Anatomy & Physiology [“Basics of Anatomy and Physiology”] says: “Movement, motivation, planning, and initiative are governed by the anterior part of the frontal lobe of the brain, in which the superior frontal gyrus is located. It is a part of the sensitive cortex of the brain ... ”The same book notes:“ Behavior modeling processes take place in the upper frontal gyrus, it is assumed that this part of the brain is also responsible for managing the aggressiveness ... ”
Thus, this part of the brain is responsible for planning, motivating and committing good or sinful acts, and it also encourages a person to tell the truth or to lie. In other words, if we are talking about a deceitful or sinful person, it is perfectly true to say that the frontal part of his brain lies and sins. That is why the Quran says :, “... No! If he does not stop, We will take him by the crest (frontal part of the head), by the crest is a lying, sinful one! ”(Quran 96: 15-16)
According to Professor Keith L. Moore (Keith L.Moore), scientists discovered these functions of the superior frontal gyrus of the cerebral cortex only recently, about sixty years ago.
The Quran on Seas and Rivers (Quranic Miracles)
Modern science has discovered that in those places where two different seas collide, between them there is a natural barrier between them. This barrier separates both seas, and therefore each of them has its own water temperature, salinity and density.
For example, the water of the Mediterranean Sea is warmer, saltier and has a lower density than the water of the Atlantic Ocean. When water from the Mediterranean falls through the Gibraltar submarine ridge into the Atlantic Ocean, it moves a few hundred kilometers to a depth of about 1000 meters, maintaining its higher temperature, salinity and lower density. And at this depth the water of the Mediterranean continues to retain its properties. (see figure 1).
Despite strong waves, powerful currents, ebbs and flows, these seas do not mix and do not cross this natural barrier.
The Holy Quran mentions a barrier between two seas that are ready to meet, which, however, do not merge with each other. God says so about this:
“He has let loosed the two seas (the salt water and the sweet) meeting together.
Between them is a barrier which none of them can transgress. ”(Quran 55: 19-20)
The Qur'an also reports on the separation of fresh and salt water, on the existence of an “insurmountable dividing zone” and the barrier between them. God says in the Qur'an:
“He is the one who divided the water into two kinds, one is fresh and drinkable, the other is salty and bitter. And He established a barrier between them and an insurmountable border. ”(Quran 25:53)
One may ask why the Quran speaks of the existence of an “insurmountable separation zone” when it comes to the separation of fresh and salt water, but this is not mentioned when it comes to the delimitation of two seas?
Modern science shows that in the mouths of rivers, where the confluence of fresh and salt water occurs, the situation is somewhat different from that observed at the confluence of two seas. Modern science has established that in the mouths of rivers, where saline and fresh water are found, there is “a separation zone with a pronounced intermittent density change that separates two water masses.” Water in this separation zone differs in salt content from both fresh and from salt water (see fig. 2).
These discoveries were made relatively recently with the help of the most modern equipment for measuring the temperature of water, its salinity, density, degree of oxygen saturation, etc. The human eye is not able to distinguish the two merging seas. Rather, they appear to us as a homogeneous sea. Similarly, the human eye is not able to see the division of water in the mouths into three types: fresh water, salt water and water in the watershed area.
The Quran on Deep Seas and Internal Waves (Quranic Miracles)
The Quranic account of life in the deep seas, the darkness in them, and how it confirms modern scientific discoveries.
God says in the Qur'an:
“Or [the state of a disbeliever] is like the darkness in a vast deep sea, overwhelmed with a great wave topped by a great wave, topped by dark clouds, darkness, one above another, if a man stretches out his hand, he can hardly see it! And he for whom Allâh has not appointed light, for him there is no light.”(Quran 24:40)
This verse speaks of darkness in the depths of the seas and oceans, where a person cannot see anything at arm's length. Such darkness reigns at a depth of 200 meters or more. There is practically no light at this depth (see fig. 1). As for the depths of more than 1000 meters, then there is no light at all. A person cannot dive deeper than 40 meters. In order to reach greater depths, it is necessary either to be in a submarine or to have special equipment. A person cannot survive without outside help at inaccessible to the light of the ocean depths, for example, at a depth of 200 meters.
Scientists have only recently established the fact of the complete absence of light at great depths using special equipment and submarines, which allowed them to explore the depths of the sea. We can also understand from the following words of the above verse of the Quran: “... the depths of the sea. They are hidden by waves, over which other waves, and above them - clouds ... ”, that the deep waters of the seas and oceans are covered with waves and that there are other waves above these waves. It is clear that the uppermost waves are those that we see on the surface of the sea, since, as the Quran says, above these waves are only clouds. But what are these waves that are hidden in the depths? As scientists have recently established, in the thickness of the sea water there are also internal waves that “occur at the interface of water layers with different densities” (see Fig. 2).
Internal waves are formed above the layers of water at the depths of the seas and oceans, because at great depths the water has a greater density than the surface layers. Internal waves are very similar in nature to ordinary waves on a surface. For example, they can be broken down in the same way. However, internal waves cannot be seen. They can be detected by studying the variations in temperature or salinity of water in a given area of the sea.
The Quran on Clouds (Quranic Miracles)
Studying various types of clouds, scientists have concluded that the formation of rain clouds occurs according to certain patterns and in several stages, depending on the types of wind and clouds.
One type of rain clouds is cumulonimbus clouds. Meteorologists have studied well how such clouds form and how they form rain, hail and lightning.
They found that cumulonimbus clouds must pass through the following stages to form rain.
1) Clouds move in the wind: Cumulonimbus clouds begin to form from the moment when the winds drive several small clouds into the convergence region (see Fig. 1 and 2).
Fig. 1: In a satellite photograph, you can see the clouds moving towards convergence zones B, C and D. Arrows indicate the direction of the wind. (The Use of Satellite Pictures in Weather Analysis and Forecasting [“Using satellite imagery to analyze and predict weather”], Anderson et al., P. 188.)
Connection: After that, small clouds unite and form a large cloud1 (see Figures 1 and 2) ..
Extrusion: When small clouds unite, the power of the rising air flow inside this large cloud increases. At the same time, the ascending air flows in the central part of the cloud become stronger compared to the flows on the periphery of the cloud. These air currents cause the clouds to become vertical, causing the cloud to increase in height (see Fig. 2 (B), 3 and 4). This vertical growth leads to the fact that the cloud enters the high layers of the atmosphere, where the temperature is much lower, resulting in the formation of a drop of water and ice inside the cloud and gradually increase in size. When they become too heavy, and the ascending air currents can no longer hold them, they fall out of the cloud in the form of rain, hail, etc.
Fig. 3: Cumulonimbus. After the cloud grows in height, it starts to rain. (Weather and Climate [“Weather and Climate”], Bodin, p. 123.)
Fig. 4: Cumulonimbus. (A Color Guide to Clouds [“Color Atlas of Clouds”], Scorer, and Wexler, p. 23.)
God says so in the Quran:
"See you not that Allâh drives the clouds gently, then joins them together, then makes them into a heap of layers, and you see the rain comes forth from between them. And He sends down from the sky hail (like) mountains, (or there are in the heaven mountains of hail from where He sends down hail), and strike therewith whom He will, and averts it from whom He wills. The vivid flash of its (clouds) lightning nearly blinds the sight." (Quran 24:43).
“Have you not seen how God commands the clouds to float across the sky, then collects them together and puts them on top of each other, after which you see how it rains from their depths ...” (Quran 24:43)
Meteorologists have only recently learned about these mechanisms of cloud formation, the features of their structure and functions. This was achieved only by examining the nature and direction of the wind, measuring the magnitude and range of fluctuations in air humidity and atmospheric pressure using the most modern equipment: airplanes, satellites, computers, aero probes, etc.
the quoted verse of the Qur'an after mentioning clouds and rain speaks of hail and lightning:
“... And He sends hail from the heavenly mountains (clouds), and He strikes them with those He desires, and turns them away from those He desires. The brilliance of a lightning bolt almost blinds him. ”(Quran 24:43)
Meteorologists have found that those cumulonimbus clouds from which hail falls out reach a height of 7.5-9.2 km, “like real mountains, and that’s what the Quran says:“ ... And He sends hail with of the celestial mountains (clouds) ... ”(see fig. 4).
However, a question may arise: why does the Qur'an speak of “its lightning” as applied to hail? Does this mean that hail is the main cause of lightning? Let's see what is said about this in a scientific publication entitled Meteorology Today [“Meteorology Today”]. This book says that
when hail passes through that part of the cloud that is saturated
sharply cooled particles of water and ice crystals, the cloud quickly electrified.
When water droplets come into contact with hail, they freeze, causing their internal energy to be released as heat. As a result, the surface of hailstones turns out to be warmer than the ice crystals surrounding them. When hailstones come into contact with ice crystals, one important phenomenon occurs, which is that electrons begin to move from a colder object to a warmer one. As a result, the hailstones turn out to be negatively charged. A similar phenomenon occurs when the sharply cooled particles of water come in contact with the hailstones, from which small positively charged particles of ice are split off. These lighter and more positively charged particles, along with the ascending air flow, move to the upper part of the cloud. Negatively charged hailstones, on the contrary, move to the lower part of the cloud, as a result of which it acquires a negative charge. Due to this, an electrical discharge in the form of lightning occurs. From this we can conclude that hail is the main cause of lightning.
The origin of lightning was discovered quite recently. Up to 1600 AD e. in meteorology, the views of Aristotle (Aristotle) were considered basic. For example, he believed that in the atmosphere there are two types of vapor - dry and wet. He also believed that thunder is nothing but the sound produced by the collision of dry vapor with clouds, and lightning is the ignition and burning of dry vapor with weak fire. These are just some of the ancient concepts of meteorology, which were considered basic fourteen centuries ago, when the Quran was revealed to the world.
The Miracle of Iron (Quranic Miracles)
Iron is one of the few elements that can be found in the Qur'an. In Sura Al-Hadeed, known as (iron), we read:
“Indeed We have sent Our Messengers with clear proofs, and revealed with them the Scripture and the Balance (justice) that mankind may keep up justice. And We brought forth iron wherein is mighty power (in matters of war), as well as many benefits for mankind, that Allâh may test who it is that will help Him (His religion), and His Messengers in the unseen. Verily, Allâh is All-Strong, All-Mighty". (Quran 57:25).
This verse uses the Arabic word "anzalna", which translated means "sent down" and one would assume that the metaphor is used here when it comes to iron, that is: we bestowed iron on people’s benefit. But after analyzing all the references to this word in the Qur'an, we find that it is used everywhere only in its literal sense, for example, “reduced the rain”, “reduced the revelation” and indicates that something was physically “lowered” from heaven to earth. In this case, this ayat presents us with an amazing scientific discovery. The fact is that modern astronomical studies confirm that the iron available on our planet came to us from giant stars in space.
Not only on Earth, but in all places of the Solar System, iron has appeared from space. The fact is that the temperature in the Sun is insufficient for the formation of iron. The sun has a surface temperature of about 6000 degrees Celsius with an internal temperature of about 20 million degrees. And iron can be formed only on those stars that are much larger than the sun, the temperature on them should reach several hundred million degrees. When the mass of iron exceeds its maximum possible level on this star, the star can no longer hold it, and then it explodes, turning into what is called a “new” or “supernova” star. As a result of such explosions, iron is in space.
On one scientific resource is presented quite important information:
“There is confirmation of the events preceding the emergence of a supernova. An elevated level of iron-60, recorded in deep-water sediments, suggests that a supernova explosion occurred about 90 light years from the Sun about 5 million years ago. Iron-60 is a radioactive isotope of iron formed during the explosion of a supernova, whose half-life is 1.5 million years. The increased presence of this isotope in the geological layer indicates the recent nuclear synthesis of its elements somewhere in space and its subsequent transportation to the earth (possibly in the form of dust particles) ”.
This confirms that iron was not formed on the Earth, but came to us from supernovae, literally “was relegated,” as stated in the Quran. It is clear that such a scientific fact could not be known at all in the 7th century, when the Koran was sent down to the Prophet Muhammad. However, this event is described in the Quran - the Word of God, the One who is aware of everything and embraces all things with His infinite knowledge.
The fact that the gland was given special attention in the Quran is quite striking, given that the discoveries were made at the end of the 20th century. In his book “The Fate of Nature”, the famous microbiologist Michael Denton emphasizes the importance of iron:
“Among metals there is nothing as necessary for human life as iron. The accumulation of iron in the center of the star causes a supernova explosion and the subsequent dispersion of the atoms of life throughout space. It was the attraction of iron atoms to the center of the primitive earth that produced a high temperature, which caused the initial chemical modifications of the earth, the creation of an early atmosphere, and, ultimately, the formation of the hydrosphere. This molten iron in the center of the Earth, acting like a giant dynamo, produces the Earth’s magnetic field, which in turn creates Van Allen radiation belts protecting the Earth’s surface from the destructive power of penetrating cosmic radiation and preserving the critical ozone layer from destructive cosmic rays ... ”.
“Without iron atoms, there would be no life in space based on carbon, no supernovae, no heating of the primitive earth, no atmosphere or hydrosphere. There would be no protective magnetic field, no Van Allen radiation belts, no ozone layer, no hemoglobin metal [in human blood], no metal to tame the oxygen reactivity, and no oxidative metabolism ... "
“The intriguing and intimate relationships between life and iron, between the red color of blood and the death of some distant stars, not only indicate the relation of metals to biology, but also the biocentricity of space ...”.
This collection clearly indicates the importance of iron atoms. The fact that the Qur'an also pays special attention to the gland emphasizes even more the importance of this element.
Another interesting fact: not so long ago, scientists learned how to use iron oxide particles to treat cancer and at the same time achieved positive results. A group of scientists led by Dr. Andreas Jordan at the internationally renowned Charité Hospital in Germany was able to destroy cancer cells with the help of a new technology developed for the treatment of cancer with magnetic fluid hyperthermia (high-temperature magnetic fluid). When using this technique on a 26-year-old Nikolaus H., scientists discovered that no new cancer cells had formed in the next three months.
This method of treatment can be described as follows:
1. A liquid containing particles of iron oxide is injected into the tumor with a special syringe, after which the particles are distributed throughout the tumor cells. This fluid contains one thousand million particles of iron oxide per 1 cm ³ (the size of which is 1,000 times smaller than red blood particles), which can easily flow through all blood vessels.
2. Then the patient is placed in a chamber with a powerful magnetic field.
3. This magnetic field, acting outside, drives the iron particles in the tumor. At this time, the temperature in a tumor containing iron oxide particles rises to 45 degrees.
4. After a few minutes, the cancer cells, unable to protect themselves from heat, are either weakened or destroyed. After that, the remaining tumor can be completely destroyed by subsequent chemotherapy.
With this treatment, only cancer cells are exposed to magnetic effects, as only they contain iron oxide particles. The spread of the described technology is the main focus in the treatment of this potentially fatal disease. In addition, it was found that iron is also a therapeutic agent for people suffering from anemia. Having found its application in the treatment of such widespread diseases, the words about iron, said in the Quran, are especially remarkable: “in it (in iron) there is great evil and good for people” (Quran 57:25). Indeed, from this verse of the Quran we can learn about the great benefits of iron, which it brings to human health. (And Allah the Most High knows best).
The Victory of the Romans and the Lowest Point on Earth
At the beginning of the seventh century, the two most powerful powers on Earth were Byzantine and the empire of Persians. In 613-614, war broke out between these states. The Byzantines suffered one defeat after another from the enemy. The Persians were able to capture Damascus and Jerusalem. In Sura Romana, Allah stated that, despite the cruel defeat, the Byzantines will soon gain victory:
“The Romans are defeated in the lowest land.
In the nearer land (Syria, Iraq, Jordan, and Palestine), and they, after their defeat, will be victorious.
Within three to nine years. The decision of the matter, before and after (these events) is only with Allâh, (before the defeat of Romans by the Persians, and after, i.e. the defeat of the Persians by the Romans). And on that Day, the believers (i.e. Muslims) will rejoice (at the victory given by Allâh to the Romans against the Persians),
With the help of Allâh, He helps whom He wills, and He is the AllMighty, the Most Merciful.
(It is) a Promise of Allâh (i.e. Allâh will give victory to the Romans against the Persians), and Allâh fails not in His Promise, but most of men know not. ” (Quran 30: 2-6)
These verses were sent down in 620 C.E, that is, approximately 7 years after the crushing defeat of Christian Byzantines against the heathen Persians. In the verses it was reported that soon the Byzantines would once again defeat the Persians. However, at that time Byzantium was in such a grave condition that the very existence of the empire was under threat. It was no longer able to defend itself against numerous neighboring states, which kept threatening its integrity.
Now not only the Persians, but also the Slavs, Avars, Lombards represented a danger to the once powerful state. The Avars reached practically the gates of Constantinople. The rulers of many lands that were part of the Byzantine Empire, governors and nobles openly rebelled against the emperor Heraclius. The Byzantine Empire was on the verge of collapse. The Emperor Heraclius, to ensure the needs of the troops, ordered all the silver and gold ornaments that were in churches and cathedrals to be melted down for money. When this money was not enough, all the bronze statues that were in the city were melted down.
Seven years after the initial ayats from the Ruma Sura were sent, in December 627 AD not far from the Dead Sea  a decisive battle took place between the Byzantines and the Persians, in which miraculously the army of Sassanian Iran was defeated. This time the Byzantine army dealt a severe blow to the enemy’s positions. A few months later, the Persians were forced to sign an agreement on the return of all the lands they had previously seized to Byzantium.
Another scientific sign in the field of geography, which is reported by the above verse of the Quran, is the following expression: “... in the lowest land” (Quran 30: 3). The place where the main battle took place between the two superpowers of the time is located on one of the sections of the East African fault zone. The 6,000-kilometer East African fault zone extends from the Taurus in Turkey to the Zambezi Valley in southern Africa.
It is interesting that the images of this site obtained from satellites show that the part of the surface adjacent to the Dead Sea is the lowest point on Earth. In fact, the lowest point is the shore of the Dead Sea, which is located at 400 meters below sea level. On Earth, there is no land that is below this level.
What the Koran describes as the lowest land is the neighborhood of the Dead Sea. This is one of the scientific signs of the Quran, since at the time of the above verse there were no technologies with the help of which people could discover this scientific truth. This once again confirms that the Quran is a divine revelation sent by the Creator of the heavens and the Earth.
These are just some of the many scientific facts found in the Quran. It is important to note that the Quran is not a scientific book, but it is consistent with science. To assert that the scientific facts in the Quran are a coincidence would be absurd. The best explanation is that God revealed this knowledge to the prophet Muhammad.
