This interpretation appears difficult, however, for while today we categorize species into genera, families, and other taxonomic ranks within evolutionary tree (phylogenetic) models, such categories are understood as an evolutionary process in which, even now, sub-groups of many species are diverging and gradually evolving into new species. The Qur’an is the literal word of God, which He revealed to His Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) through the Angel Gabriel. Therefore, science proves the very same fact which Quran mentioned 1400 years ago which might have seemed odd for the people of that time as there was no science to prove it then, but today everyone accepts this fact. and 95 A.D. The Carolina anole, which is a lizard species, is another such example. Quran . In this reprint, I decided to improve its presentation by simplifying the language and editing the text from an oral for… Leave not of the Unbelievers, a single one on earth! The Arabic verb and preposition indicates that the sun actually moves. We were the doers (thereof). The scientific facts mentioned in Qur’an have been discovered during last few centuries. People believed that the sun orbited the earth and that the sky was held up by big pillars at the corners of a flat earth. But they denied him, and the dreadful earthquake took them, and morning found them prostrate in their dwelling place. The Romans, Greeks, Egyptians, Persians, Chinese and Indians had avid astronomers who, critics maintain, should have seen this event and recorded it in their histories. And the earth, We have spread it; how excellent (are). there came Our command, and the fountains of the earth gushed forth! Lane goes on to say, citing the highly regarded Taj al-Arus classical dictionary, 'it [light] is of two kinds, the light of the present world and that of the world to come; and the former is either perceived sensibly, by the eye, and this is what diffuses itself from luminous bodies, as the sun and moon and stars, and is mentioned in the Kur. And every nation hath its term, and when its term cometh, they cannot put it off an hour nor yet advance (it). No just estimate have they made of Allah, such as is due to Him: On the Day of Judgment the whole of the earth will be but His handful, and the heavens will be rolled up in His right hand: Glory to Him! "He it is Who created you from a single being, and of the same (kind) did He make his mate,". They also argue that the wording needed to be acceptable to people of its time. The Qu'ran states that Moses dealt with a Samaritan during his time, however the Samaritans did not exist until well over half a millennium after Moses is supposed to have existed. There also exist species whose young are not raised as family and which lay eggs and abandon them before hatching. I plan to collect all the Ayaats of the Holy Quran with deal with scientific, historical and archaeological subjects. There are many facts that can be seen in modern science, but those facts were already discussed in the Holy Quran. The Quran says that Solomon had the power to control the wind and traditional sources elaborate that Solomon could use this wind to fly upon a gigantic wooden carpet to wherever he pleased. Some modern Islamic scholars have argued that these verses refer to the seven layers of the atmosphere. Modern linguistics has revealed, however, that the type of sentences constructed in the Qur'an were not spoken by humans until over 100,000 years after the first humans evolved. Called plate tectonic, these massive plates meet and the pressure between them pushes up the crust forming mountains while also causing earthquakes and faults in the Earth's surface. These circumstances are difficult to reconcile with the Quran's assertion that the Quran was 'revealed in Arabic so that people may understand it'. Then turned He to the heaven, and fashioned it as seven heavens. The 'guarded canopy' does not, it appears, protect one from these apocalyptic intruders. There were no telescopes, microscopes or anything even close to the technology we have today. The Qur'an states that Allah has provided four kinds of cattle (eight including male and female). The Qur'an states that stars (kawakib ٱلْكَوَاكِبِ) and/or lamps (masabih مَصَٰبِيحَ) adorn the heavens and guard against devils. Hermaphrodites of all species also do not appear to fit in to this dichotomy. The Qur'an emphatically states that all animals live in "communities". I am trying to provide explanation to those Ayaats in light of Previous commentaries (Tafaseer), established science, archaeological discoveries and Arabic lexicons. Verily in this are signs for those who believe. They said: We come, obedient. Had it not been that he (repented and) glorified Allah, He would certainly have remained inside the Fish till the Day of Resurrection. contains unbelievable scientific facts which are being discovered in this century. 2-The revelation started in the Holy month of Ramadan. Scientific Miracles in the Holy Quran. ments in the Quran and scientific knowledge which are not likely to be subject to further discussion. Now surely I shall cut off your hands and your feet alternately, and, “( Allah) said; ‘We have tested thy people in thy absence: the Samiri has led them astray’.”, “( Moses) said, ‘What then is thy case, O Samiri?’”, This day shall We save thee in the body, that thou mayest be a sign to those who come after thee! Science at the time was primitive, there were no telescopes, microscopes or anything even close to the technology we have today. The Qur'an states that an embryo is transformed from semen into a clot, shaped (presumably into a human mold), and then determined into either the male or female sex. While it took one week to travel from Mecca to Jerusalem (the location of the alleged 'farthest Mosque') by camel, the Qur'an states that a magical winged horse, called the Buraq, transported Muhammad from Mecca to Jerusalem in a matter of minutes. Modern responses typically appeal to metaphor, alternative meanings, or phenomenological interpretations of such verses. “…We made every living thing from water. The movement contends that the Quran abounds with "scientific facts", and since they appeared centuries before their discovery by science and "could not have been known" by human beings. And he took a muster of the Birds; and he said: "Why is it I see not the Hoopoe? The Presence of Iron: For the people of today iron is a metal that is found on earth. Then We subjected the wind to his power, to flow gently to his order, Whithersoever he willed, A flying carpet made from wood, on top of which he could carry everything in his kingdom including chairs, to wherever Solomon wants to go, whilst flocks of birds would fly over to give shade. And (He has created) horses, mules, and donkeys, for you to ride and use for show; and He has created (other) things of which ye have no knowledge. Interestingly, Quran 25:46 follows up by stating that Allah 'draws the shadows towards himself'. Mail has also been found in a 5th century BCE Scythian grave, and there is a cumbersome Etruscan pattern mail artifact from the 4th century BCE. He said: 'An angel among the angels, who is responsible for the clouds. In cosmic egg myths, an egg-like structure was split into two halves, the lower half forming the earth and the upper half forming the heaven. In the same way, when we see the order in the universe around us, isn’t it rational to say that the universe has an organiser? The Qur'an, by contrast, describes mountain-like masses of hail in the sky / heaven. It is now a well-established scientific fact that the Sun is not stationary, but is moving in an orbit around the centre of our Milky Way galaxy. Historians commonly credited the invention of coat mail (not to be confused with scale armor) to the Celts in the 3rd century BCE.[30]. The Quran never in any way differentiates the sun's orbit from that of the moon and consistently implies that they are of a common nature. Then if Allah wishes (to complete) its creation, the angel asks, (O Lord!) 'Abdullah. He is the Lord of (all) the Worlds. Hail forms in cumulonimbus clouds when updrafts raise water droplets to an altitude where they freeze. Thus were they made powerless to scale it or to dig through it. The forelock, however, is not a part of brain and hosts no neural activity. The Quran describes Earthquakes, blizzards, hurricanes, and other destructive natural activity as being a sort of punishment for the people they inflict. A lamp is described as "shining light" with the same Arabic word used in Quran 25:61 (muneeran مُّنِيرًا): In Lane's Lexicon of classical arabic, the word muneer (مُّنِيرً) is defined as 'Giving light, shining bright, bright, or shining brightly'. the likeness of Jesus with Allah is as the likeness of Adam. Even in less extreme contextxs, for cities further south like Aberdeen in Scotland, the gap between the night prayer (Isha) and the dawn prayer (Fajr) is still around 4 and a half hours in June, so a person praying five times a day is required to interrupt their sleep around 3.20am, then go back to sleep before getting up for the day. The lines below discuss some facts that have their mention in Quran and were later proved by science. He is Aware of what is in the breasts (of men). Quran 2:29 further confirms that heaven was only made into seven heavens when, according to the Quran, the Earth already existed. Quran 81:11 adds that the sky is like a covering that can be 'stripped away'. He it is Who created for you all that is in the earth. The Qur'an describes a time in the future when mountains will be removed. The idea of three membranes around the fetus (chorion, allantois, and amnion) was taught by the highly influential Greek physician, Galen, and the description found in the Quran in all likelihood draws on Galen's widespread influence in the late antique world. We have indeed decked the lower heaven with beauty (in) the stars, (For beauty) and for guard against all obstinate rebellious evil spirits, (So) they should not strain their ears in the direction of the Exalted Assembly but be cast away from every side, Repulsed, for they are under a perpetual penalty, Except such as snatch away something by stealth, and they are pursued by a flaming fire, of piercing brightness. [He] who made for you the earth a bed [spread out] and the sky a ceiling and sent down from the sky, rain and brought forth thereby fruits as provision for you. Let him beware! At length, behold! The Qur'an contain descriptions regarding bodily fluids and the stages of development of the human embryo. [28] The word azwajin ("kinds" in the translation of 39:6 below) generally means "mate" or "member of a pair". And We have made the heaven a guarded canopy and (yet) they turn aside from its signs. But science has not advanced to a level where it can confirm every statement of the Qur’an referring to scientific information. The Qur’an states that it is a perfect book preserved on tablets in heaven (Surah 85:21-22). Modern satellites and near comprehensive exploration of the Earth's surface, however, have yet to reveal any trace of such massive structure. The small lecture by Dr. Zakir Naik sheds light on scientific aspects of geology and mountains and the verses mentioned in the Quran that support these scientific facts. Then she brought him to her own folk, carrying him. Quran 13:2 further emphasizes this image by pointing out that, unlike what one would expect with an Arabian tent, the canopy that is the sky needs no 'pillars' to hold it up. While there exists hieroglyphic evidence of people impaled through upright stakes in ancient Egypt, this remains distinct from the Palm-tree crucifixions described in the Quran, as Palm trees are of too great girth to be used to vertically impale an individual. Muscles have started to form before the cartilage models start to be replaced with actual bone. Find out more. Solomon is able to understand her speech and proceeds, presumably, to leave the ants be. If it were not there then radiation would have caused havoc and the freezing temperatures at night would have extinguished life on earth. In the verse below, as also in Quran 13:3 and Quran 50:7, the Qur'an uses a verb (madadna) that meant to extend by drawing or pulling, stretch out, expand.[22]. In fact, Quran 2:22 juxtaposes the 'canopy' that is the sky with the 'couch' that is the earth, evoking precisely the image of an Arabian tent inhabited by floor cushions intended for seating. Thou hast come with an amazing thing. A clot. The Qur'an again parallels the influential Greek physician Galen, who says: The Quran states that all beings are created in pairs. Animals of these kinds do not live in communities and rather tend to resort to violence when their solitude is disturbed (the opposite, some argue, of what it means to live in a community). Are the people of the townships then secure from the coming of Our wrath upon them as a night-raid while they sleep? The structure of space-time is such that nothing, not even stars, can move faster than the velocity of light. Critics have pointed out that since the moon is visible to half the planet at any given time, there should exist numerous accounts from different parts of the world attesting to the event if it in fact happened. You are invited to go through those miracles and judge for yourself. Instead, the word noor (nooran نُورًا) is used, which simply means "a light", and, in another verse, the word muneer (muneeran مُّنِيرًا) is used, which means "giving light" and is from the same root as noor. Narrated Anas: "That the Meccan people requested Allah's Apostle to show them a miracle, and so he showed them the splitting of the moon.". A common myth at the time of the Quran's composition was that the sky or heavens were held up with pillars. And We said: Smite him with some of it. By contrast, the Qur'an appears to suggest that horses were created by Allah already prepared to serve human purposes. The same thing is proved by science where it tells that every living thing comprises of cells and these cells consist of 80% cytoplasm, which in simple terms is explained as water. Do they not look at the birds, held poised in the midst of (the air and) the sky? BIBLE. [24] This description implies the Earth is flat and level and that it is the mountains which give it shape. While translators mostly use "And" in verse 39, the Arabic particle is fa, as also in the previous conjunction, which indicates sequence (i.e. A hadith in Sahih Muslim confirms that the 'pursuant flames / missiles' in the two verses refer to meteors which they saw shooting across the sky. And yet they are turning away from Our signs!” (21:32). At length, when he had filled up the space between the two steep mountain-sides, He said, "Blow (with your bellows)" Then, when he had made it (red) as fire, he said: "Bring me, that I may pour over it, molten lead." Various rules have been contrived by Muslim scholars for those at such latitudes to try to accommodate the (here inconvenient) fact that we live on a round Earth. That is the measuring of the Mighty, the Wise. The very next verse Quran 21:31 speaks of mountains being placed on the Earth. He created you from one soul. Meteors, on the other hand, are now known to be distinct from the distant stars. The Parable of His Light is as if there were a Niche and within it a Lamp: the Lamp enclosed in Glass: the glass as it were a brilliant star: Lit from a blessed Tree, an Olive, neither of the east nor of the west, whose oil is well-nigh luminous, though fire scarce touched it: Light upon Light! Bible Scripture. The Qur'an, by contrast, asserts that nobody before John the Baptist (Yahya in Arabic) bore his name. Allah doth guide whom He will to His Light: Allah doth set forth Parables for men: and Allah doth know all things. This demonstrates according to supporters that the Quran must be of divine origin. While scientists have discovered that ants make some noises, nothing has ever indicated that the brains of ants could produce anything approximating complex speech. x. In consideration of the roundness of the Earth, scholars developed the great circle method to carry out this instruction. Another verse describes the literal descent of humanity from one man with reference to the sexual means by which it was achieved (i.e. Since geological evidence suggests such a flood never took place, some modern Muslim scholars have reinterpreted the account in the Quran as referring to a more limited, local flood. The Qur'an implies that the sun and moon are of comparable size. There were many pharaohs from numerous dynasties who were preserved in this way. The word translated “seed” in the Pickthall translation is nasl نسل, which means progeny (i.e. So blessed be Allah, the best to create! there came Our command, and the fountains of the earth gushed forth! The people of Midian (Midyan) are killed overnight by an earthquake Quran 7:91, Quran 29:36. We have been taught the speech of birds, and on us has been bestowed (a little) of all things: this is indeed Grace manifest (from Allah. These humans were created in a garden (the word for paradise in Arabic is jannah, which literally means 'garden') and then brought to Earth fully formed (Sahih Hadiths say Adam was 60 cubits - or 90 feet - tall). Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. In the Qur'an, the people of Thamud are killed instantly by an earthquake Quran 7:78 or thunderous blast Quran 11:67, Quran 41:13-17, Quran 51:44, Quran 69:5. ayats. Many of the verses of Quran that were revealed at that time were proven by science almost a thousand years later. The Moon does not actually follow behind the sun's movement, nor does it provide its own light like the sun. It might not have been clear to the people of those days however, people of today who have access to science can agree with the fact that the sky actually does serve as a protective shield for life on earth. The Quranic description is likely influenced by a simplistic attempt at explaining human reproduction based on unaided-eye observations of an early-term miscarriage and a woman's menstrual cycle. The same Arabic words are used at the start of Quran 67:5 as in Quran 37:6 (زَيَّنَّا ٱلسَّمَآءَ ٱلدُّنْيَا), except that in Quran 67:5 the word lamps is used instead of stars. There exist, however, many more than four species of cattle. Posted on September 16, 2013 by yazlee. From whencesoever Thou startest forth, turn Thy face in the direction of the sacred Mosque; that is indeed the truth from the Lord. The Quran (Koran, the book of Islam) contains scientific knowledge that could not have been known 1400 years ago. Pharaohs were preserved intact using methods such as salt to dry the body (hence, salt in the body of Ramesses II does not suggest that he drowned in the dead sea). Today feral horses are descendants of once domesticated horses that aren't tamed or used for human transportation. Find out more. Establish regular prayers - at the sun's decline till the darkness of the night, and the morning prayer and reading: for the prayer and reading in the morning carry their testimony. The Qur'an states that hills and birds would sing the psalms with David. We all know that water is vital to life, but the Quran makes a very unusual claim: “WE MADE EVERY LIVING THING FROM WATER? So all that is written while the child is still in the mother's womb.". The complete absence of any such historical record from other civilizations contemporary to Muhammad is thus presented as a strong indication that the event described in scripture never happened. Allah it is who hath created seven heavens, and of the earth the like thereof. This booklet by Dr. Maurice Bucaille has been in circulation for the past nineteen years and has been a very effective tool in presenting Islam to non-Muslims as well as introducing Muslims to aspects of the scientific miracle of the Qur’an. The best part of it is that Quran came into the world thousands of years ago and it contains all the practical realities of today’s world. This reflects the widespread contemporary view that semen is the material from which the embryo is initially formed, as taught by Hippocrates, Galen, and the Jewish Talmud. However, historically the Ka'bah has been attacked time and again and witnessed several battles. By contrast, modern science has shown that semen is the vehicle for the sperm cells, one of which fuses with a woman's ovum in her fallopian tube, and that the resulting cell divides (rather than the seminal medium) and travels back into the womb for implantation.
