Al-Quran & Science

I heard this statement from Discovery Channel “Islam, the fastest growing faith in the world”.
One of the reason is the scientific findings that have been proved this century but its already stated in the glorious al-Quran 1500 years ago! Please remember that while you reading all this points.

1) Iron was sent down to earth from space:

“…We (Allah) sent down iron…
[Al-Hadeed 57:25]

2) Universe was originated from Dust and Hot Gas, or Smoke:

[Fusilat 41:11 “Then He turned to the heaven when it was smoke…“]

A new star forming out of a cloud of gas and dust (nebula), which is one of the remnants of the “smoke”, that was the origin of the whole universe.
[The Space Atlas, Heather and Henbest, page 50]

3) When Galaxies explode, they form a rose-shaped explosion:

And when the heaven splitteth asunder and becometh rosy like paint
[Al-Rohman 55:37 ]

4) The earth is shape like an egg:

[An-Nazi’at 79:30 “He made the earth egg-shaped“]

*the Quran used the word ‘dahaha’ meaning egg or to be specific ‘dah’ refer to spherical shaped

5) The Ozone layer is a protective ceiling to earth:

[Al-Anbia’ 21:32 “We made the sky a preserved and protected roof yet still they turn away from Our Signs“]

6) Mountains are like pegs rooted inside the earth:

Have We not made the earth as a wide expanse and the mountains as pegs?”
[An-Naba’ 78:6-7]

7) Creation of the Universe (“The Big Bang”):

Do not the unbelievers see that the heaven and the earth were joined together (as one unit creation), before We clove them asunder?...”
[Al-Anbia’ 21:30]

8 ) The Expending Universe:

With the power and skill did we construct the firmament: for it is we who create the vastness of space
[Az-Zariat 51:47]

*the meaning of vastness is expanse

9) The Sun Rotates And The Existence of The Orbit:

It is He who created the night and the moon: All (the celestial bodies) swim along, each in its rounded course” & Yaa Siin 36:40 “It is not permitted to the sun to catch up the moon, nor can the night outstrip the day: Each (just) swims along in (its own) orbit (according to law)”
[Al-Anbia’ 21:33 ]

10) The Sun Will Extinguish After A Certain Period:

And the sun runs its course for a period determined for it; that is the decree of (Him) The exalted in Might, The All-Knowing
[Yaa Siin 36:38]

11) The Existence of Subatomic Particles:

The unbelievers say, ‘Never to us will come the hour’: say, ‘Nay! But most surely, by my Lord, it will come upon you by Him who knows the unseen from whom is not hidden the least little atom in the heavens or on earth: Nor is there anything less than that or greater, but is in the Record Perspicuous
[Saba’ 34:3]

12) Barrier Between Sweet and Salt Waters:

“He has let free the two bodies of flowing water, meeting together:
Between them is a barrier which they do not transgress”
[Ar-Rohman 55:19-20]

“And made a separating bar between the two bodies of flowing water?”
[An-Naml 27:61] “Is is He who has let free the two bodies of flowing water: One palatable and sweet, and the other salty and bitter; yet has He made a barrier between them, and a partition that is forbidden to be passed”

[Al-Furqon 25:53]

Modern Science has discovered that in the places where two different seas meet, there is a barrier between them. This barrier divides the two seas so that each sea has its own temperature, salinity and density. [Principles of Oceanography, Davis, pp. 92-93]

13) Darkness in the Depths of the Ocean:

[An-Nuur 24:40 “Or (the unbelivers’ state) is like the depths of darkness in a vast deep ocean, overwhelmed with billow topped by billow, topped by (dark) clouds: Depths of darkness, one above another: if a man stretches out his hand, he can hardly see it! For any to whom Allah giveth not light, there is no light!”]

14) Every Living Thing Is Made of Water:

“…We made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe?”
[Al-Anbia’ 21:30]

And Allah has created every animal from water
[An-Nuur 24:45]

It is He who created man from water: Then has He established relationships of lineage and marriage: for thy Lord Has Power (over all things)”
[Al-Furqon 25:54]

Only after advances have been made in science, the basic substance of the cell is made up of 80% water, most organisms consist of 50% to 90% water and that every living entity requires water for its existence.

15) Pain Receptors Present In the Skin:

[An-Nisa’ 4:56 “Those who reject our signs, We shall soon cast into the fire; as often as their skins are roasted through, We shall change them for fresh skins, that they may taste the penalty: for Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise”]

16) Everything Made In Pairs:

[Az-Zariat 51:49] “And of everything we have created pairs

[Thoha 20:53] “…With it have We produced diverse pairs of plant each separate from the others

[Ar-Ra’d 13:3] “And fruit of every kind He made in pairs, two and two

[Yaa Siin 36:36 ] “Glory to Allah, who created in pairs all things that the earth produces, as well as their own (human) kind and (other) thing of which they have no knowledge”]

*the stage preceding fruit is the flower which has male and female organs (stamens and ovules), these may also referring to a phenomenon like electricity in which the atoms consist of –ve and +ve charged electrons and protons. The scientific evidences of the Quran clearly prove its Divine Origin. No human could have produced a book, fifteen hundred years ago that contain profound scientific facts, to be discovered by humankind centuries later. It is important to know that the Noble Quran doesn’t give scientific equations. It instead gives many scientific notions that had been proven today to be clear Scientific Miracles because they fit perfectly with modern science. Quran is not the book of science but it is the book of signs!

Finally, there is someone who will accept Islam on the strength of just one scientific ‘sign’ mentioned in the Quran. Some people may require hundred signs to be convinced about the Divine Origin of the Quran. Someone would be unwilling to accept the truth even after being shown a thousand signs. For that closed mentality person Allah has warn them by saying

Do they not consider the Quran (with care)? Had it been from other than Allah, they would surely have found therein much contradiction” [An-Nisaa’ 4:82]

Jazakumullah. WallahHuAlamBissawab…
