Knowledge from the Quran

12th February 2012
The Qur’an is a source of guidance unto Mankind until the day of Qiyaamah (doomsday).

The Qur’an contains colossal amounts of knowledge. Many scholars of Tafseer (Exegesis) have attested to the unique knowledge encapsulated in the Qur’an.

Hadhrat Abdullah Bin Mas’ood (Radhiyallahu Anhu states: “Whosoever wishes to learn knowledge, then he should seek knowledge from the Qur’an”.

Allamah Suyoothi (Rahmatullahi Alayhi), a famous Mufassir (exegete) and Muhaddith (expert in Hadeeth) states: “The knowledge of the Qur’an and that which is deduced wherefrom is, a sea which has no shore”[1]

Qaadhi Abu Bakr Ibnul – Arabi (Rahmatullahi Alayhi), a famous Mufassir (exegete) discusses the unique knowledge of the Qur’an and states: “Indeed the Qur’an has seventy seven thousand four hundred and fifty branches (77, 450) of knowledge according to the number of words in the Qur’an. Each word contains four dimensional branches of knowledge which when multiplied, the total amount of branches of knowledge contained in the Qur’an is three hundred and nine thousand eight hundred (309, 800).

Each verse has the following four dimensions:

1. Apparent

2. Hidden

3. Internal

4. External

Qaadhi Abu Bakr Ibnul - Arabi (Rahmatullahi Alayh) further states that: “This is a general figure without taking into consideration the unique syntaxical construction of the Qur’an. When that is taken into consideration, the amount of knowledge is infinite and is only known by Allah (Azza Wa Jalle)”[2]

The above statements clearly expounds the colossal and infinite knowledge contained in the Qur’an which we can never fully understand.

The Qur’an consists of innumerable branches of knowledge:

1. Biology

2. Ecology

3. Oceanography

4. Agriculture

5. Anatomy

6. Meteorology

7. Psychology

8. Physiology

9. Embryology

10. Astronomy

11. Geology

12. Sociology

13. Jurisprudence

14. Theology

15. Chemistry

16. Zoology

17. Logic

18. Statistics

19. Mathematics

20. Earth Science

21. Botany

22. Engineering

23. Medicine

24. Astrophysics

25. Electromagnetism

26. Astronautics

27. Philosophy

28. Social Science

29. Economics

This is the tip of the iceberg; the Qur’an contains much more knowledge.

Only recently Scientists have discovered the enormous scientific facts and secrets hidden in the Qur’an.

Our weak intellectual capacities in front of Allah (Subhanau Wa Ta’ala)’s knowledge is like a drop of water in the ocean. We can never equate our knowledge with that of the Qur’an since it contains such vast and infinite collections of knowledge.
