Scientific Points in a Few Verses of the Quran

Scientific Points in a Few Verses of the Quran

Allah says:

(Verily, in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of night and day, and the ships which sail through the sea with that which is of use to mankind, and the water (rain) which Allah sends down from the sky and makes the earth alive therewith after its death, and the moving (living) creatures of all kinds that He has scattered therein, and in the veering of winds and clouds which are held between the sky and the earth, are indeed Ayat (proofs, evidences, signs, etc.) for people of understanding.) (2:164)

The Quran was revealed to Muhammad(peace be upon him) who was unlettered; he could neither read nor write. His people were generally unlettered as well. Therefore, how can a man bring forth a Scripture which stunned the most eloquent of people!

Allah says:

(Say, “If mankind and the jinn were to be gathered in order to produce the like of this Quran, they could not produce the like of it, even if they were to each other assistants.”) (17:88)

The Prophet(peace be upon him) and many of his companions were destitute, and he would recite to them verses from the Quran which have mention of scientific facts. Over 1400 years after the Quran was revealed, modern science discovered these very facts with advanced equipment!

Thomas Carlyle said:

‘A false man found a religion? Why, a false man cannot build a brick house! If he does not know and follow truly the properties of mortar, burnt clay and what else be works in, it is no house that he makes, but a rubbish-heap. It will not stand for twelve centuries, to lodge a hundred and eighty millions; it will fall straightway.’
