The Holy Quran is Proven Scientifically
The Qur’an was revealed fourteen centuries ago, mentions the facts that have recently been discovered or proved by scientists. These are many scientific facts found in the Quran. It is important to note that the Qur’an is not a book of science, but it is following the science.
These are just a few of the many scientific facts in the Qur’an. It is important to note that the Qur’an is not a book of science, but it is connected through science.
A mobile phone was connected systematically, so it would be wise to understand that it must have an administrator. Similarly, when we see the order in the universe around us, wouldn’t it be rational to say that there is an administrator of the universe?
“We shall show them Our signs in the universe and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that this is the truth. Is it not enough that your lord is the witness of all things?”[Quran, 41:53]
The origin of life
The fact that living things are mostly made up of water was discovered only after the microscope’s invention. In the Arabian Desert, the last thing anyone would have guessed is that all life has come from water.
“We made every living thing from water? will they not believe?”[Quran, 21:30]
“We created man from an extract of clay. Then We made him as a drop in a place of settlement, firmly fixed. Then We made the drop into an alaqah (leech, suspended thing, and blood clot), then We made the alaqah into a mudghah (chewed substance)…” (Quran 23:12-14).
Professor Emeritus Keith L. Moore (the most famous prominent scientists in anatomy and embryology field): “It is clear to me that these all statements and evidence must have come to Muhammad peace be upon him from God because almost all of this knowledge was not discovered until many centuries later.
Our sky protects our Earth from the deadly and bad rays which come from the sun. If the sky not exists, then the sun’s radiation would destroy all life on Earth. It also behaves like a blanket wrapped around the ground to protect it from the cold of space. The temperature above the sky is about -270oC. If this temperature were to reach Earth, the planet would freeze immediately. The sky also protects humans and other life on Earth by warming the surface by retaining heat.
“We made the sky a protective ceiling. And yet they are turning away from Our signs!” (Quran 21:32)
Iron is not natural on Earth. It did not form on Earth but came to Earth from outer space. This may sound strange to us, but it is true. Scientists have discovered that the Earth was trapped by meteorite billions of years ago. It was carrying iron from distant stars that exploded (M. E. Walrath, History of Earth Formation).
“We sent down Iron with its great inherent strength and its many benefits for humankind.” (Quran 57:25)
Sea and ocean
Modern science has discovered that where two different oceans meet, there is an obstacle. This barrier divided both seas so that each ocean had its own temperature, salt, and density (1) [Principles of Crisis, Davis, pp. 92-93]
He has set free the two seas meeting together. There is a barrier between them. They do not transgress. (Quran, 55:19-20).
The orbit of the sun
The idea that the sun is stationary among astronomers until the 20th century. It is now an established scientific fact that the sun is not stationary but revolves around the center of our Milky Way galaxy.
“It is He who created night and day, the sun and the moon, each floating in its orbit.”[Quran, 21:33]
A book entitled Geophysicist Frank Press (Earth (ISBN 0716717433) Press, Frank, Sewer, Raymond. W. H., Freeman, c1986) explains in his theory that mountains are like stakes, and deep beneath the earth’s surface. Are buried Mount Everest, which is about 9 km above the ground, has more than 125 km of roots.
“Did we not make the earth a resting place? and the mountains as stakes?”[Quran, 78:6-7]
Expansion of the universe
The fact is that the universe expanded in the last century. “The discovery that is spreading in the universe was one of the great intellectual revolutions of the 20th century,” wrote physicist Stephen Hawking in his book A Brief History of Time.
“And it is We who have built the universe with [Our creative] power and keep expanding it.”[ Quran, 51:47]
