The Miracle Of The Qur’an

All that we have seen so far shows us one clear fact that the Qur’an is such a book that all the news related in it has proved to be true over the years and continues to stay ahead of us and modern science. Facts about scientific subjects and the news given about the future, facts that no one could have known at the time the Qur’an was revealed. It is impossible for this information to have been known with the level of knowledge and technology which was available over 1400 years ago.

In the 7th century, when the Qur’an was revealed, Arab society had many superstitious and groundless beliefs where scientific issues were concerned. Lacking the technology to examine the universe and nature, early Arabs believed in legends inherited from past generations. They believed the mountains supported the sky above. They believed that the earth was flat and that there were high mountains at both ends like pillars which supported the sky. However all these superstitious beliefs of Arab society were eliminated with the Qur’an. The verse mentions:

“It was said: “God is He who raised up the heavens without any support.” (Qur’an, 38:2)

This verse confirmed the belief that the sky does not remain above because of the mountains. In many other subjects, important facts were revealed at a time which no one could have known at the time.

In one of the verses within the Qur’an, it’s mentioned we will not find any inconsistencies within the Qur’an.

“If it had been from other than God, they would have found many inconsistencies  in it.” (Qur’an, 4:82)

Not only are there no inconsistencies within the Qur’an, but every piece of information it contains coninues to reveal the miracles of this divine book and will continue to do so.

In the year 1976, a lecture was given which was located at the French Academy of Medicine. The lecture title was Physiological and Embryological data in the Qur’an and was delivered by a French physician Dr Maurice Bucaille. His reason for hosting the lecture was that “our knowledge of these disciplines is such, that it is impossible to explain how a text produced at the time of the Qur’an could have contained ideas that have only been discovered in modern times.”

The citations included in this pamphlet appeared in the Qur’an during the 7th century CE. The Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) was himself illiterate and was living among illiterate people. The Arabs at that time worshipped idols and believed in horoscope and magic and were superstitious. The Arabs very actively opposed the teachings advanced by the Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) through his revelations.

Many scientists have reverted to Islam since discovering verses within the Qur’an which they know could not have been known over 1400 years ago.

What falls to man is to hold fast to this divine book revealed by God (Allah), and receive it as his one and only guide. One of the verses mentions:

“And this is a Book We have sent down and blessed, so follow it and have fear of God so that hopefully you will gain mercy.” (Qur’an, 6:155)

In other verses, God mentions:

“Say: ‘It is the truth from your Lord. Let anyone who wishes to, believe, and let anyone who wishes to, disbelieve.’”
(Qur’an, 18:29)

Another verse mentions:

“No indeed! Truly it (the Qur’an) is a reminder, and whoever wills pays heed to it.” (Qur’an, 80:11-12)

Another verse mentions:

“Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur’an and indeed, We will be its guardian.” (Qur’an, 15:9)

Another verse mentions:

“Behold! In the creation Of the heavens and the earth, And the alternation Of Night and Day – There are indeed Signs For men of understanding.” (Qur’an 3:190)

Another verse mentions:

“We will soon show them Our signs in the Universe and inside their selves, until it will become quite clear to them that it is the truth. Is it not sufficient as regards your Lord that He is a witness over all things?” (Quran, 41:53)

The Qur’an, 1400 years later continues to show its signs to humans and the amazing part is, a 1400 year old book continues to keep up with us. God planned all perfectly.

I found that the Qur’an is like an instruction manual for the humans and if followed correctly leads one to being a good human being. The Qur’an includes solutions for everything we face in life. Definetly a solution for humanity.

Does Islam Preach Hatred? Are Muslims Bad?
Due to the issues occuring around the World and from what you may read on the Internet, lots assume Islam is Evil and preaches hatred. This is not the case, as from the research I have carried out, Islam teaches peace and respect. Have a read of Are Muslims Bad People? which should hopefully clear any misunderstandings you have about Muslims and Islam.

God knows best
