An email I received from a good Islamic friend of mine.
Does anyone agree that these are miracles?
In my honest opinion, I hight doubt it. I think thier just trying to put 2 and 2 together.
This message maybe a little long but I will try to give a brief summary of Islam and proof of things in the Qu'ran that have been later discovered
but to mention off hand, a very famous book that mentions much of this is called
"The Bible, The Qu'ran and Science" By Dr. Maurice Bucaille
This gentleman was an agnostic, but about two years after writing the book, he converted to Islam. However, at the time of writing it, he was not
affiliated with any religion and thus I beleive it to be completely objective
Moving on, let me go through some things
The most significant proofs in the Qu'ran are the mathematical patterns inherent within them, some things which only those deeply associated with it
would discover, because God says that he has left signs for those who see them, and those who look for them
"Do the unbelievers not realize that the heavens and the earth used to be one solid mass that we exploded into existence? And from water we made all
living things. Would they believe? [Qur’an 21:30]"
As you most likely know, the above statements are all true and have only been proven since the age of enlightenment of David Hume and John Locke. It
is important to note the Nobel Prize in 1973 was given for the discovery that all life origninated from Water, or H20
"Then he turned to the sky, and it had been (as) smoke (dukhaan): He said to it and to the earth: come you together, willingly or unwillingly. They
said: we do come (together) in willing obedience. [Qur’an 41:11]"
This verse explains what is now known as the origin of the universe, which was created from smoke, which is how new stars form, the verse may seem
general however the Hadith or accompanying Prophet's advice make it clear this is what was meant
"The universe, We have built it with power. Verily. We are expanding it. [Qur’an 51:47]
This shows the Qu'ran mentioning the expansion of the universe something which was never known before
"And God created every living creature from water. Some of them walk on their bellies, some walk on two legs, and some walk on four. God creates
whatever He wills. God is Omnipotent. [Qur’an 24:45]"
Again information in the terms of laymen, which is scientifically profound and is proven today
HERE IS THE WOMB IN A DESCRIPTION NEVER BEFORE WITNESSED OVER 1400 YEARS AGO
"What is the matter with you, that you are not conscious of God’s Majesty. Seeing that it is He that has created you in diverse stages? [Qur’an
"He creates you in the wombs of your mother, in stages, one after another, in three veils of darkness. [Qur’an 39:6]"
" Subsequently, we reproduced him from a tiny drop, that is placed into a well protected repository. Then we developed the drop into a hanging
(embryo), then developed the hanging (embryo) into a bite-size (fetus), then created the bite-size (fetus) into bones, then covered the bones with
flesh. We thus produce a new creature. Most blessed is God, the best Creator. Then, later on, you die. Then, on the Day of Resurrection, you will be
resurrected. [Qur'an 23:12-16]"
Here is what a Christian Embryologist had to say about the Qu'ran's mention his name is Keith L. Moore "It has been a pleasure for me to help
clarify statements in the Qur’an about Human Development. It is clear to me that these statements must have come to Muhammad from God or Allah because
almost all of this knowledge was not discovered until many centuries later."
"When you look at the mountains, you think that they are standing still. But they are moving, like the clouds. Such is the manufacture of God, Who
perfected everything. He is fully Cognizant of everything you do. [Qur'an 27:88] "
This has been proven now, that hte mountains are indeed moving
"And we sent down Iron, in which is great might, as well as many benefits for mankind [Qur’an 57:25]
It has been proven that iron came in the form of a meteor from space, and the Prophet elaborated on this, and it once again has been justified
"O assembly of Jinns and Men, if you can penetrate regions of the heavens and the earth, then penetrate them! You will not penetrate them save with a
Power. [Qur’an 55:33]"
This verse speaks of the fact that god, will give mankind enough knowledge to go into space however we will never discover what we are looking for
"In regards to Clouds, “Have you not seen how God makes the clouds move gently, then joins them together, then makes them into a stack, and then you
see the rain come out of it...?” [Qur'an 24:43] "
This verse speaks about the formation of clouds
There are literally hundreds upon hundreds of other miracles in the Qu'ran, there are many mathematical miracles in the Qu'ran as well for example
the number of bones in the human body, the number of joints, and many many other things, If you are interested after this I can send it,
