The Miracles of Al Qurâ€™an and Modern Science
It is true that Al Qurâ€™an is a miracle from God. How come? Many Al Qurâ€™an verses that were sent down in 7th century where science was not developed yet (many people thought the earth is flat and the Sun revolves arount the Earth) fit with the Modern Science.
For example look at the verses below:
Heaven and Earth used to be one
â€œHave not those who disbelieve known that the heavens and the earth were of one piece, then We parted them, and We made every living thing of water? Will they not then believe?â€ [Al Anbiyaa:30]
At that time, no one know that Heaven and earth were one at the beginning. But later in the 20th century the Modern Science such as Big Bang Theory stated that Heaven and earth were one. Then separated like now.
Also it is true that every living form, including one cell plant contains water and need water. The existence of water is a sign of the existence of living form in a planet. Without water there is no life. This is the truth from Al Qurâ€™an.
In Al Qurâ€™an stated that the Sun and the Moon each move in certain orbit.
â€œAnd He it is Who created the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. They fload, each in an orbit.â€ (Al Qurâ€™an, 21:33)
In other verse stated that the Sun is not stand still. Yet it moves in a certain orbit.
â€And the Sun runs in its orbit. That is the measuring of the Mighty, the Wiseâ€ (Al Qurâ€™an, 36:38)
The Expanding Universe
In the Al Qurâ€™an that sent down 14 centuries ago when the Astronomy was still immature, the Expanding Universe described as follow:
â€œWe have built the heaven with might, and We it is who make the vast extent (thereof).â€ (Al Qurâ€™an, 51:47)
According to Al Qurâ€™an, the heaven extended/expanding. That is the knowledge acquired today by Modern Science.
Since the Big Bang, the universe keep expanding with enormous speed. The scientist describe the expanding universe similar to the surface of the blowing balloon.
Until 20th century, the scientists believe the universe is still and exist without beginning. Yet the observations, researches, and calculations by Modern Technology found out that the Universe has beginning and keep expanding.
On early 20th century, Russian physicist, Alexander Friedmann, and Belgian Cosmologist, George Lemaitre, theoretically count and found that the universe keep moving and expanding.
This fact is proven with observation data on 1929. When observing the sky with telescope, Edwin Hubble, an American Astronomer, found that the stars and galaxies keep moving away from each other.
The Moving Mountains
â€œAnd thou seest the mountain thou deemest solid flying with the flight of clouds; the doing of Allah Who perfecteth all things. Lo! He is Informed of what ye do.â€ [QS 27:88]
14 centuries ago all people thought the mountain stand still. Not moving. Yet Al Qurâ€™an said the mountain is flying like clouds.
Today the Modern science found out that the mountain move with earth at the speed around 1,670 km/hour for rotation and 107,000 km/hour for revolution around the sun.
Another theory found out that the mountain move with continental crust. Alfred Wegener (1880-1930), German meteorologist, made the theory of continental drift that all the continents were once joined as one landmass, which he named Pangaea. Then this super continent breaking up 200 million years earlier into Laurasia and Gondwanaland. Theyâ€™re keep moving until become Eurasia, Africa, America, Australia, and Antarctica just like today.
On average, tectonic plates move around 4 to 7 cm per year.
On Muhammadâ€™s era, the concept of wind as the pollinator to join the pollen and ovary of the plants was not known at all. Yet, now become the common knowledge.
â€œAnd We send the winds fertilizing, and cause water to descend from the sky, and give it you to drink. It is not ye who are the holders of the store thereof. â€ (Al Qurâ€™an, 15:22)
The Prophecy of Romans Victory over Persian Empire
â€œThe Romans have been defeated In the nearer land, and they, after their defeat will be victorious Within ten years Allahâ€™s is the command in the former case and in the latter and in that day believers will rejoiceâ€ (Al Qurâ€™an, 30:2-4)
The verses sent down around 620 AD. Almost 7 years after the great loss of Christian Byzantium against Persian emporium. The Byzantines lost Jerusalem city. Then the verses predicted that the Byzantines will win in the near future although the Byzantines suffered a great loss that it was likely impossible to survive.
The threats not only came from the Persians, but also from Avars, Slavians, and Lombards. Many governors rebelled against Heraclius (The Byzantium emperor) and the Kingdom almost collapse. Mesopotamia, Sicily, Syria, Palestine, Egypt, and Armenia that once belong to Byzantium invaded by the Persian (Warren Treadgold, A History of the Byzantine State and Society, Stanford University Press, 1997, s. 287-299.)
As the Godâ€™s word in Al Qurâ€™an, several years later the Romans beat the Persians!
The Pharaohâ€™s Body Saved
â€œBut this day We save thee in thy body that thou mayest be a portent for those after thee. Lo! most of mankind are heedless of Our portents.â€ [QS 10:92]
Dr. Maurice Bucaille used to be a researcher on Pharaohâ€™s mummy in Egypt. On Ramses II mummy he found something funny. The salt concentration in mummyâ€™s body is very high. He found out the answer later in Al Qurâ€™an. Ramses II is the Pharaoh that drowned by God when he chased Moses into Red Sea!
The Bible only mentioned that Ramses II was drowned. Only Al Qurâ€™an that said the Pharaohâ€™s body was saved by God so it could become the lesson for all of us now!
Remember this, Muhammad lived 3,000 years after the event and there is no information that the Ramses IIâ€™s body was saved since in the Bible there is no such information. The Pharaohâ€™s tomb, Pyramid, for thousands of years buried deep underground and sand. Just at 1817 AD, archeologist Giovanni Battista Belzoni found the pyramid. But Al Qurâ€™an could mention it because it is the words of God. Not human made.
Every thing is Created in Pairs
Al Qurâ€™an repeatedly mentioned pairs in plants, animals, human, and many others.
â€œGlory be to Him Who created all the sexual pairs, of that which the earth groweth, and of themselves, and of that which they know not!â€ [Yaa Siin 36:36]
If we study thoroughly, then everything in this world is in pairs. Not only man and woman, day and night, positive ion and negative ion, but many other things!
British Scientist, Paul Dirac, a Nobel Prize winner in 1933, said that matter created in pairs. His finding, called â€œParitÃ©â€, said matter has anti-matter which has opposite behaviour with matter. For example electron is a negative particle, then its antiparticle is positron which is a positive particle.
This kind of facts will not be known scientifically by human in 7th century when Al Qurâ€™an was revealed! That is some of Miracles in Al Qurâ€™an!
