The scientific miracle of the Holy Quran
The Quran is a unique miraculous Book. It is self-witness that it is a Heavenly Book. Allah the Greatest made it a proof of the Prophethood of Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم. None of the enemies could succeed in changing it. Even a single letter ص , ن , and ق in the beginning of the Surahs remains unchanged for the last 1435+ years. One of its qualities is that it has always been a challenge to the prevailing knowledge of the era. At the time of revelation it was a challenge to the great writers and poets of that era. so no one could make a statement in the Quran’s style or kind. Now the prevailing knowledge is science. The Holy Quran is a challenge to science so much so that the great scientists get astonished to know that their great discoveries are already referred to in the Holy Quran. The Holy Quran is full of such miraculous statements but I can give only a few examples here:
Then We made the sperm-drop into a clinging clot, and We made the clot into a lump [of flesh], and We made [from] the lump, bones, and We covered the bones with flesh; then We developed him into another creation. So blessed is Allah , the best of creators.
- Embryology: The stages of fetal growth in the womb of the mother are mentioned in a few surahs. Surah Al-Mominun verse 14 can be seen. Here Allah says:
A well-known embryologist entered the fold of Islam upon knowing about these statements in the Holy Quran. He was struck with wonder to know that the Quran tells us about a stage when the fetus is like a chewing gum. He said that in the modern age the modern scientists have observed these stages with powerful microscopes. How did Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم observe the chewing gum-like form of a fetus? So this is a proof that Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم Is a Prophet of God Allah. Thus he became Muslim.
And gathered for Solomon were his soldiers of the jinn and men and birds, and they were [marching] in rows.
Until, when they came upon the valley of the ants, a she ant said, "O ants, enter your dwellings that you may not be crushed by Solomon and his soldiers while they perceive not."
So [Solomon] smiled, amused at her speech, and said, "My Lord, enable me to be grateful for Your favor which You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents and to do righteousness of which You approve. And admit me by Your mercy into [the ranks of] Your righteous servants."
- We have a chapter named An-Namal– the ant. In this chapter Allah سبحانه و تعالى informed us about Prophet Sulaiman عليه السلام , that while marching with his armies he heard and understood the words of a female ant who was ordering the ants to enter their holes so that Sulaiman عليه السلام and his armies might not crush them unknowingly under their feet. The verses 17, 18 and 19 of the Surah An-Namal are:
It is only now when science discovered the fact that ants live in communities and they are ruled by a female ant.
Indeed, those who disbelieve in Our verses - We will drive them into a Fire. Every time their skins are roasted through We will replace them with other skins so they may taste the punishment. Indeed, Allah is ever Exalted in Might and Wise.
- Pain-sensitive nerve endings in the skin. In Surah An-Nisaa, verse 56, Allah said:
The modern medical science has now discovered the fact that skin has pain sensitive nerve endings. If the skin is destroyed due to some reason, pain sensitivity will be abolished. So in the Hereafter, Allah, the Lord of Retribution, will renew the skin of the dwellers of Hell repeatedly after damage so that they may taste the chastisement. Therefore, the bloodshedders must take heed and understand that Allah’s system is also excellent in punishing the unjust wicked.
Do not the Unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together (as one unit of creation), before we clove them asunder? We made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe?
- The big bang theory is referred to in verse 30 of Surah Al-Anbiya where Allah said:
Here the word unbelievers, includes the non-Muslim scientists because it is they who did their experiments and observations and finally they made the Big bang theory about the creation of the universe. Allah Almighty informed HIS Final Messenger more than 1400 years ago about the modern science and the unbeliever scientists, and indirectly addressed these scientists reminding them the big bang and thus telling them about the great creation of their Lord. So they must know that they are accountable to their Great Creator and Lord. Therefore they must believe in HIS existence and Oneness, and they must obey HIM as well as worship HIM.
Now it is the duty of the Muslims of the present era to show such miraculous verses to the non-Muslim scientists. It may be that they will think and become Muslims
Therefore, it’s necessary that all mankind in general and Muslims in special read, understand, and follow the excellent miraculous Quran and convey its message to all mankind.
