Scientific Signs in the Quran
There are many different scientific signs in the Quran. Science in Quran is a vast topic. We will discuss one or two signs from various fields of science briefly to make you understand that Quran and modern science go a long way with each other.
The Big Bang Theory
According to the scientific big bang theory, the whole universe was a huge collective mass. Then, a big bang (explosion) divided this huge mass into galaxies, planets, and stars. What if we tell you that this theory was accurately mentioned in astronomy in Quran 1400 years ago?
"Do not the Unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together (as one unit of Creation) before We clove them asunder?" (Al Quran 21:30)
Allah clearly mentions physics in Quran that there is an existence of particles smaller than an atom. This verse just shows the Highness of Allah and his knowledge. He has knowledge about everything present in this world.
Mountain forming is a complicated process. The surface where mountains are formed is rigid and fixed. Another verse dedicated to geology in Quran says:
"And the mountains has He firmly fixed." (Al Quran 79:32)
All living organisms, including man and animals, are made up of water.
"It is He Who has created man from water: then has He established relationships of lineage and marriage: for thy Lord has power (over all things)." (Al Quran 25:54)
Medicines in Quran
"There issues from within their bodies a drink of varying colors, wherein is healing for men." (Al Quran 16:69)
Honey is rich in fructose and Vitamin K. If a person is allergic to a plant, drinking the honey from the flowers of that plant will help that person. It will help him to overcome the allergy. The research showed these facts after centuries' however, they were crystal clear 1400 years ago in the Holy Quran.
Man Created from Alaq
Embryology in Quran is present in the form of several verses. About the creation of man, Quran says:
"Proclaim! (Or Read!) in the name of thy Lord and Cherisher, Who created. Created man, out of a leech-like Clot." (Al Quran 96:1-2)
Fingerprints are critical worldwide in crimes and different cases. They were discovered in 1880. However, 1400 years ago, Allah mentioned this in the Quran as the fingerprints are evidence of the connection between the Quran and modern science:
"Does man think that we cannot assemble his bones? Nay, We are able to put together in perfect order the very tips of his fingers." (Al Quran 75:3-4)
