Quran Explains Certain Scientific Facts With Unbelievable Accuracy
2nd January 2013
TweetSince their inception, human beings have been seeking their nature and status in this boundless universe. People attach themselves with different religion in this untiring quest for the actual purpose of humanity. The followers of various faiths claim that their respective religions are based on divine books but fail to present any concrete proof to support their claim. However, Islam is different in this regard because Islam proves its authenticity through proper reasoning and solid proofs.
Quran is indeed the word of God:
It is the stern belief of Muslims that Allah Almighty revealed Holy Quran on Holy Prophet (PBUH) and any human did not write it. There are clear reasons and undeniable signs to believe this such as,
The language style of Quran is unique and cannot be replicated and this style is known as Inimitability of the Quran.
There are many predictions in Holy Quran that were proved true with the passage of time.
Holy Quran contains many scientific and historic facts about which people of Arab were completely oblivious of. Furthermore, contemporary science has proved almost all of these facts.
Some important scientific facts in Holy Quran:
If people (especially living in West) learn Quran through a live Quran tutor or through any other means, they will find many scientific realities explained in Quran. Allah Almighty revealed Quran on Holy Prophet (PBUH) in the seventh century when the science was not even in its primitive stages. People could not even think about the inventions like telescope and microscope. In these circumstances, Allah explained many scientific phenomena with complete accuracy. Some of the most important scientific facts given in Quran are discussed below.
At times when the science of astronomy was still rudimentary, Allah mentioned the concept of expanding universe in the Holy Quran. Allah says, With the power and skill did We construct the Firmament: for it is We Who create the vastness of Space. (Quran 51:47) The fact that universe is expanding was discovered in the 20th century by the science and is considered as one of the greatest achievement of human intellectual. However, these so-called greats forget or intentionally ignore that Islam has disclosed this reality in 7th century.
Orbit of the Sun:
Allah in the Holy Quran has also mentioned that Sun is not stationary and is revolving in a round orbit in the following words, It is He Who created the Night and the Day, and the sun and the moon: all (the celestial bodies) swim along each in its rounded course. (Quran 21:33) Until the start of the twentieth century most of the astronomers believed in Copernican theory that Sun is stationary that was put forward in 16th century. However, it has been established of late that Sun is not stationary but moving in the Milky Way around its round orbit thus endorsing the Holy Quran.
The Quran tries to draw humankinds attention to very important and interesting quality of mountains. Allah says in Surah An Naba that is chapter number 78, Did We not make the earth a resting place? And the mountains as stakes? (Quran 78:6-7) Here the word stake indicates that mountains have deep roots inside the earth that is a reality and stake is an accurate description of this quality of mountains. Modern science in the shape of theory of plate tectonics has also proved that mountains do have deep roots under the ground. For instance, Mount Everest is almost 9 Km high but have roots which are more than 125 Km deep.
Origin of life:
Quran makes an unusual claim about water that is necessary for survival of all living organisms. Quran says that human beings were originated from water, We made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe? (Quran 21:30) The basic unit of every living being is cell and the basic unit of cell is mostly made up of water. For instance, cytoplasm that is the basic structure of standard living cell is 80% water according to medical science. The illiterate Arabs of the 7th century were least expected to discover that human beings are actually water.
These are only four of innumerable scientific facts described in Holy Quran. Now it is the duty of every Muslim to learn and understand Holy Quran whether through learned scholars or academies offering Holy Quran online tutoring alongside complete knowledge of Islam. Muslims need to inform disbelievers that it is actually Islam and Holy Quran that is a complete code of life offering solutions to problems relating every aspect of life not only in this world but in the world hereafter as well. The confirmation of universal facts explained in Quran by modern science is the greatest testimony to the truth and authenticity of Holy Quran.
