Scientific Miracles In Quran


The Big bang and Expansion of the Universe

If anyone were to search in a library or on the internet about the recent scientific findings as to the origin and development of the Universe, they will definitely come across the big bang theory and the expansion of the universe. We know that these are correct because the Qur’an told us 1400 years ago that-

"Haven't the disbelievers considered that the Heavens and the Earth were a joined entity and We separated them…”(Qur'an 21:30)
"And the Heaven we created with great strength and indeed We are its expander.”(51:47)


The Atmosphere/Ozone Layer

Science has recently uncovered that there is a protective barrier between the Earth and the immediate sky. This protects us from burning and deadly uv-rays, it protects us from small meteors, it protects our gases including oxygen which we need to breath etc… This reality was not even discussed by the scientists and philosophers in the time of the Prophet Muhammad. The Qur’an said it as clear as a scientist would today-

“And we made the sky a protective ceiling…” (21:32)


Orbit of the Sun, Moon, and all other Celestial bodies

In the time the Qur’an was revealed there were hundreds of ideas and theories as to the reality of the Sun and the Moon. It was recently discovered that the moon is in an orbit and the earth and that the earth is in orbit around the sun. The latest advancement is that the sun orbits our galaxy which also has its own orbit. God cleared this issue in the Qur’an centuries before modern science and technology-

“…the sun and the moon; all heavenly bodies are swimming in an orbit (circular motion).”(21:33)


The Lowest Point on Earth

If you look up “the lowest point on the earth” in any geography book or on the internet you will find from all sources a unanimous decision of the land surrounding the Dead Sea. All of the early commentators of the Qur’anic exegesis said that this battle took place after the Persians invaded deep into Byzantine Sham (modern day Syria, Jordan, Palestine) and these commentators as well as non-Muslim historians specified that the battle took place in a land called Azriyat which was close to the northern tip of the Dead Sea. It is interesting to see that the commentators (of centuries ago) argued and disagreed as to why God used the word “the lowest” to refer to this place. Now science has informed us what God meant-

"The Byzantines have been defeated in the lowest of the Earth (Adnal-Ard)…”(30:2-3)


The Uniqueness of the Fingerprint

God Almighty tells us in the Qur’an that when resurrecting everyone from their graves that He can put man back together as he was years ago before dying. He then emphasizes by making a point out of even perfectly proportioning the finger tips. In the modern world it is well-known especially in the science of human identification that the finger print is the one unique factor in differentiating between people. So therefore to say we can put them back together is one thing, but sown to the very fingerprint is a claim to perfection which only God can make. It was written 1400 years ago-

“Does man think that We will not assemble his bones? Yes. We are able to proportion him to his fingertips.”(75:3-4)


Iron as a Metalic Element Sent Down From Above

"...And We sent down iron in which there lies a great force and which has many uses for mankind..."(57:25)

The word “anzalna,” translated as "sent down" and used for iron in the verse, could be thought of having a metaphorical meaning to explain that iron has been given to benefit people. But, when we take into consideration the literal meaning of the word, which is, "being physically sent down from the sky, as this word usage had not been employed in the Quran except literally, like the descending of the rain or revelation, we realize that this verse implies a very significant scientific miracle. Because, modern astronomical findings have disclosed that the iron found in our world has come from giant stars in outer space.

One scientific source provides the following information on this subject:
"There is also evidence for older supernova events: Enhanced levels of iron-60 in deep-sea sediments have been interpreted as indications that a supernova explosion occurred within 90 light-years of the sun about 5 million years ago. Iron-60 is a radioactive isotope of iron, formed in supernova explosions, which decays with a half life of 1.5 million years. An enhanced presence of this isotope in a geologic layer indicates the recent nucleosynthesis of elements nearby in space and their subsequent transport to the earth (perhaps as part of dust grains).”

All this shows that iron did not form on the Earth, but was carried from Supernovas, and was "sent down," as stated in the verse. It is clear that this fact could not have been known in the 7th century, when the Quran was revealed. Nevertheless, this fact is related in the Quran, the Word of God, Who encompasses all things in His infinite knowledge.

And He show you His signs, so which of the signs of God you deny?

Is that an actual direct quote from the Quran? If it is that's very interesting because I wasn't aware that any ancient religion made that statement.

More scientific miracles in the qur'an mumbo jumbo. According to the Qur'an, biological evolution isn't true. There's no evidence that what these verses are talking about have anything to do with science, their wording is to vague to prove or disprove whether or not it is talking about a scientific discovery.

The lowest point on land is the Dead Sea that borders Israel, the West Bank and Jordan. It's 420 meters below sea level.


The lowest point on the Earth's crust is the Mariana's Trench in the North Pacific Ocean.

they are 2 different categories , no comparable issues between them , i think

Lowest Point on Earth

Are you saying that the Mariana Trench isn't on Earth? The OP claimed that the Dead Sea is "The Lowest Point on Earth." That would only be true if the Mariana Trench wasn't on Earth.

i think that mariana trench itself not the lowst land , but may be lowst point for earth's crust exist there

for more understanding
the land of dead sea is lower than the land of Mariana trench , although the earth's crust at Mariana is lower

that's why i gave you the site which state the two facts , without any comparisons between them

plz make your google about the lowst point on the earth , and show me your results

The lowest point on land on earth is at the Dead Sea, on the border of Jordan and Israel. The Dead Sea lies at 1,312 feet (400 meters) below sea level.

The lowest point in the sea on earth is the Pacific Ocean's Marianas Trench. It's near Guam and is 35,840 feet (10,924 m) deep.
Therefor, the lowest point on earth is the Mariana Trench. You are limiting your results to the land on earth. The OP didn't make any restrictions. The OP's claim that the Dead Sea is "the lowest point on earth" is false. It's fine if you want to say the Dead Sea is the lowest point on land on earth. Just realize that you aren't talking about the same thing as me. I'm talking about the OP's claim, you are talking about something completely different.

The only way you can say that the Dead Sea is lower than the Mariana Trench is if you say that the Mariana Trench is not on Earth.
