It is important to know that the Noble Quran doesn't give scientific equations. It instead gives many scientific notions that had been
proven today to be clear Scientific Miracles because they fit perfectly with modern science. One of the Divine Miracles of the Noble
Quran is that Allah Almighty (through His perfect use of the complex and artistic language of Arabic) used scientific notions to make the Noble Quran truly dynamic for all the times that It is presented in.
These scientific notions hid in them, for many centuries, the scientific statements and discoveries that we just came to know today,
and perhaps are even hiding in them more statements that our future generations will discover. These notions are basically key words and/or terms that describe certain creations of GOD Almighty. For example:
1- Allah Almighty in one Word said that the Universe is expanding and in another term said it will shrink back again. Science confirmed that today through the big bang and the cosmic crunch theories.
2- Allah Almighty in two Words mentioned the layers of waves and darkness inside the vast oceans. Science today, again, confirmed that.
3- Allah Almighty in one Word said that He made the earth as an egg. We all know today that earth is spherical and science did confirm that the earth is indeed egg-shaped.
4- Allah Almighty in few terms in several Noble Verses said that mountains prevent the earth from shaking. Science today did indeed
confirm that mountains stabilize the earth and prevent it from constantly shaking while it is rotating around its own axle.
5- Allah Almighty in one term talked about the earth reducing in size. Science today indeed confirmed that earth is shrinking in size due to volcanoes and earth "debris" caused by erosions, earthquakes, sea-waves changing the shape and condition of the land and other natural factors, escaping to space. In fact, it is estimated that earth lost approximately 10-40 miles from its radius or depth size in the past 10 or so billion years!
6- Allah Almighty mentioned in one term the moon's fault line. Science today confirmed that the moon's fault line, which is splitting it in half, was caused by major moonquakes.
7- Allah Almighty in one term talked about the earth's 7 properties. Science today confirmed that the earth has 7 inner layers and 7
8- Allah Almighty in one term talked about the region inside the human-brain that controls the movements. Science today confirmed that.
Many more examples (and the list is growing) are provided at: The overwhelming Scientific Miracles in the Noble Quran section.
The Prophet of Islam, peace be upon him, was already accused of being crazy by the infidels. Have Allah Almighty given sophisticated
scientific statements that covered exact details as we scientifically know them today, then no one would've believed the Prophet of Islam, because:
1- He wasn't a scientist and such science wasn't known to man back then, which makes it impossible for him to explain it, even if Allah Almighty Inspired it to him. The information would not have been understood by the nomad bedouins 1,500 years ago.
2- People had already inclined toward declaring the Prophet as an insane man, and many already did. Any extraordinary supernatural
statement that requires a lot of scientific explanations such as "we have people standing on the other side of the world (under our feet), and all humans are actually standing on the side of the earth not on its top or back."
Such statement would require knowledge in gravity and astronomy, which man did not know about 1,500 years go.
Like I said, many have accused the Prophet of being a madman. Allah Almighty did not want to complicate Islam, especially to the people
who did not know much about science:
"Say (to them O Muhammad SAW): "I exhort you on one (thing) only: that you stand up for Allahs sake in pairs and singly, and reflect (within yourselves the life history of the Prophet SAW): there is no madness in your companion (Muhammad SAW), he is only a warner to you in face of a severe torment." (The Noble Quran, 34:46)"
"And (O people) your companion (Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) is not a madman; (The Noble Quran, 81:22)"
That is why Allah Almighty used scientific notions instead of statements and equations. They are for man to discover as he advances
in life. The more man advances, the more he will find that many of his discoveries are mentioned in the Noble Quran. That is why the Noble
Quran's Miracles are for all times and all places!
Let's get some facts straight:
1-Quran is a book of one volume while bible is more than 60 minor books
2-Quran is much lesser in size from the bible.
3-The books we now know as parts of Bible weren't exactly what God sent over Moses(peace be upon him) and Jesus(Peace be upon him).
4-Quran is different from any other book in the world, while it carries the meanings and the beauty that no one but God couldn't have made.
Anyway since the 1500 years of it's revelation no one has declared to have said something"more accurate, more eloquent and more rhetoric than the holy Quran.
5-Any real prophet is decontaminated of the smallest of sins. while we see the Bible who narrates of Lot sleeping with her girls (Genesis 19), while in the holy Quran in the parts that Lot is mentioned to be a "Honest & Trustworthy" as well as any other prophet (Quran 26:162)
6-And about Lot maybe some people may claim he had to sleep with his daughters as there were no other man to fertilize them and produce children but holy Quran says:
"Successful indeed are the believers ... Who abstain from sex Except with those joined to them in the marriage bond ... [then] they're free of blame." (Quran 23:1-10)
7- The Quran says:
"That this is verily the word of an honored messenger[=Archangel Gabriel], It is not the word of a poet: little it is ye believe! Nor
is it the word of a soothsayer: little admonition it is ye receive.This is) a Message sent down from the Lord of the Worlds. And if the
messenger[here =Muhammad]] were to invent any sayings in Our name, We should certainly seize him by his right hand, And We should certainly then cut off the artery of his heart:" (Quran 69:40-46)
Yet, we see God himself threatens his prophet MUHAMMAD not to quote the things other than what is told to him to deliver to people.
8-God sent prophets with miracles to prove their prophesy
Thus the major miracle of Muhammad is Quran
God says: "And if ye are in doubt as to what We have revealed from time to time to Our servant[=Muhammad], then produce a Sura[=A Chapter of Quran] like thereunto; and call your witnesses or helpers (If there are any) besides Allah, if your (doubts) are true."
Till now 1500 years has passed since this declaration, but no one has ever affirmed to have said a Sura which experts equalize it with any of Quran's Suras.
9-Quran is as beautifully composed in Arabic by God that even in the first years of it's revelation when Islam had nothing more than 20 followers, even the enemies of Muhammad and Atheists went and listened to it.
10-Quran was revealed to Muhammad, an illiterate in 23 years. None of the Verses of the revelations of the first year paradoxes with the revelations of the last year. If Muhammad said Quran by himself, he would get more knowledgeable by years-like any other human- and would want to revise his book, but he always said Quran is from Allah[=God].
11-Disbelievers asked Muhammad many times to say a Sura about special things, for example a sura containing thier own names, but Muhammad never effected the Quran with thier saying and said it isn't mine, it's from Allah.
12-Quran was revealed in a society, completely out of knowledge and science. Arabs in that time killed thier own daughters, and had filled Kaaba[the holy house of God built by Abraham] with more than 300 idols to pray each once a year!
The first verses that were revealed to Muhammad are:
"1-Proclaim! (or read!) in the name of thy Lord and Cherisher, Who created-
2-Created man, out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood:
3-Proclaim! And thy Lord is Most Bountiful,-
4-He Who taught (the use of) the pen,-
5-Taught man that which he knew not." (Quran 96:1-5)
These verses speak of God, knowledge and teaching in a society that only had 10 in the full peninsula of Arabia who could Read and Write. Wonderful!
13-While the most bountiful Allah wants to teach human, in Genesis we face a God who warns Adam not to eat of the tree of knowledge! Surely that part of Bible is authorized, because it has a direct paradox with the last revelation to humankind -Quran.
14-Quran itself declares that it will guide people to the right path forever (17:9) Thus it's never old, and as the time passes it doesn't
grow dimmer but glows more Shining
15-In Quran speaks more than 770 times of "Knowledge", 280 times of "Mention" 185 times of "listening carefully" 49 times of "Intellect", 19 times of "Mulling[the meaning of deep thinking], 18 times of thinking 8 times of "Logic and Theorem", 132 times of "Reasoning", 114 times of phlosophy!
These statistics will astound you more if I say Quran is only 6236 verses!
Telling the address of all these words will bore you, but I will tell if anyone doubts.
17-About scientific facts of Quran
There was a time when one who declared Earth's Roundness was considered a fool, but later Science proved it's trusty.
Will it be a good judgement to judge quran from our knowledge, which changes every day.
The scientific things that Quran said will be found in the future as some are found.
And if the things that 19 said don't have scientific basis; it doesn't mean Quran was wrong.
We still haven't understood those verses well.
16-I'd like to end my reply with some great non-Muslims' point of view on Quran:
Albert Einstein wrote:Quran is not a book of algebra or geometry but is a collection of rules which guides human beings to the right way, the way which the greatest philosophers are unable to decline it.
Will Durant wrote:Religious treatments in Quran contain worldly treatment too and all of its affairs are sent from Allah by
revelation. Quran contains rules such as: good manners, healthiness, marriage, divorce, treatments with children and animals and slaves, commercials, politics, unlawful profit, debt, contracts, recommendations, industrial affairs, wealth, amercements and
punishments and war and peace. Quran creates simple beliefs in simple souls, which are free from bad traditions and worship of idols. Quran has established principles of union discipline and social unity between Muslims.
Napoleon Bonaparte wrote:Quran takes the responsibility of man prosperity alone. I hope it will not be too late that time which I can
unite all the scholars of all the countries together and establish a monotone society based on principles of Quran only which will guide
people to prosperity.
Gandhi wrote:By learning Quran, every body will achieve revelation secrets and religion knowledge. In Quran we don't see anything which allows using obligation to change others religion. This sacred book says in the simplest way: 'there is no obligation in religion.
Dr. Johan Wolfgang Von Goethe(German Poet)[said in 1832] wrote:For long years, priests prevented us understanding Quran realities and greatness of its bringer, but by improvement of sciences this book will take human attention to it and become axis of thoughts.
Lion Tolstue (Russian philosopher) wrote:Quran contains clear realties and tenets and human beings can utilize it generally.
George Bernard Shaw (Irish playwright) wrote:Europe will accept religion and book of Muhammad (PBUH).
And many many more ....
I ask for your pardon if I talked too much, but Quran deserves more. All the things I said have reliable sources, that are given in the text. Again pardon if it's a little too big as a reply!
