Quran and scientific miracles: Some incidents
The Holy Quran is a miraculous book and it does not need scientific explanation to prove that it is from God Almighty. Yet, there are images of the scientific explanation in the Holy Quran.
We know, of course, that the atmospheric layer protects our planet from harmful radiation – this was explained more than 1,400 years ago. This was not known until mentioned by God Almighty the Holy Quran: “And We made the sky a protected ceiling, but they, from its signs, are turning away,” Chapter (21) Surahal-anbiyāa (The Prophets).
The female bees are responsible for the hard work, said Allah: “And your Lord inspired to the bee, “Take for yourself among the mountains, houses, and among the trees and in that which they construct. Then eat from all the fruits and follow the ways of your Lord laid down for you”. There emerges from their bellies a drink, varying in colours, in which there is healing for people. Indeed in that is a sign for a people who give thought,” An Nahl 68-69.
Allah addresses female bees with words such as holistic, independent, and stomachs, as being responsible for work, which has been proven by recent studies.
The sense of hearing
It is known that the sense of hearing is created before the sense of sight. Allah said, “Indeed, We created man from a sperm-drop mixture that We may try him; and We made him hearing and seeing,” Chapter (76) sūrat l-insān (Man).
Also, there is a verse from the holy Quran saying: “It is He who made for you hearing, eyesight, and hearts. Little do you thank,” Al-Mu’minun-78. So this is the proof that the hearing was created before the sight and this has been confirmed by science.
The greatness of God Almighty mentioned in the Quran is that one day human beings will fly in the sky and the Almighty said, “You cannot escape (Allah’s might), on earth or in the sky; and you have no protector and no saviour besides Allah,” Quran 29:22. This is an explicit indication that humans can make aircraft and ascend the layers of the atmosphere.
Recent astronomical studies have proven that the universe in its early stages, before the creation of the earth, produced sound waves and these waves were spread in the dense gas and stars and planets were formed of that gas.
Allah has said in the Quran: “Then He directed himself to the Heaven when it was smoke and then said to it and to Earth: “Come willingly or by force” they said “We do come willingly”” [Quran 41.11].
Hypoxia (Lack of Oxygen)
Allah said, “So whoever Allah wants to guide – He expands his chest to [contain] Islam; and whoever He wants to misguide – He makes his chest tight and constricted as though he were climbing into the sky. Thus does Allah place defilement upon those who do not believe,” Al An’am 125.
When we rise from the ground to the atmosphere decreases, the oxygen level falls and it becomes hard to breath – chest becomes tight. And that is what happens in high places such as mountain peaks or in airplanes.
Bones before muscles
Research has shown that the bones of the fetus are formed on the 41st day and then three days later the muscles begin to form.
This was confirmed by the Almighty 1400 years ago when he said, “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,” Al Mukminun – 14.
The front part of the brain
The front part of the brain is responsible to tell lies. For several centuries, many believed that the front part of the human brain is responsible for vision, but now we know that it is responsible for making decisions and without it, the person loses their will to make choices. We now know that the fabrication of any lie is a form of choosing and we can say that the front part of the head is responsible for lying. The Almighty said, “No! If he does not desist, We will surely drag him by the forelock,” Al-Alaq 15.
Spherical earth rotates around the sun
In the past, it was believed that the earth is flat, but God Almighty told us that the Earth is spherical in shape and revolves around the sun. Allah said, “He created the heavens and earth in truth. He wraps the night over the day and wraps the day over the night and has subjected the sun and the moon, each running [its course] for a specified term. Unquestionably, He is the Exalted in Might, the Perpetual Forgiver.” Az-Zumar- 5.
