The Quran, Bible and Torah

Whilst carrying out my research into the Miracles within the Qur’an, it was not just miracles I gained knowledge on but also found many raising various questions, the common questions were:

1) What about the Bible, what about the Torah?
2) Are they incorrect?
3) Who was Jesus (pbuh)?
4) Who was Moses (pbuh)?
5) Were they not important?
6) Were the Bible and Torah the words of God
7) Why were the Bible and Torah not preserved like the Qur’an is?

The Qur’an mentions three other scriptures within it’s verses which include The Bible and The Torah and the Prophets, including Jesus and Moses (Peace Be Upon Them). Christians believe Jesus (Peace Be Upon Him) is God, The Son Of God and the Holy Spirit whereas Muslims believe Jesus (Peace Be Upon Him) was one of the greatest messengers of God, but not God himself. So yes, Jesus (Peace Be Upon Him) is a very important part of Islam and Muslims love him but do not worship him as God.

Muslims believe Jesus did not claim divinity, nor did he say I am God or Worship me. The oldest Gospel was written after Jesus (pbuh) was raised to the Heavens by God. None of the writers of the Gosepels met Jesus (pbuh) so a lot of the verses state “according to”.  No where in the orginal testament or text highlighted in red did Jesus (pbuh) say he was God or where he said worship me.

According to muslims, Jesus (pbuh) did not say he was God or worship him. Muslims do not believe that Jesus (pbuh) was the Son of God, Mary was the mother of God and also the daughter of God. Muslims believe the original scripture revealed to Jesus (pbuh) was indeed sent down by God (Allah) but do not believe the Gospels/New versions which were written years later.

One of the verses within the Qur’an mentions. the below verse. There are many more verses which mention the prophets (Peace Be Upon Them All)

“Say: we believe in God and in what has been revealed to us, and what was revealed to Abraham, Isma’il: Isaac, Jacob and The Tribes, and in (the Books) given to Moses, Jesus and the Prophets, from their Lord: We make no distinction between one and another, among them, and to God do we bow our will (in Islam).”
(Qur’an, 3:84)

So what about the Bible and the Torah?
The revelations revealed to Jesus and Moses (Peace Be Upon Them) were the Word of God (Allah), but Muslims believe that the new testaments have been changed over time. Whereas the Qur’an remains in it’s original language and unchanged for over 1400 years.

God (Allah), has mentioned that the Qur’an will be protected from corruption and the miracle is that the Qur’an has not been changed as God promised.

This is why today the Qur’an has been preserved in it’s original form and also memorised in it’s original language by millions from around the World. I found many sites trying to prove this incorrect, but it was clear they were desperate to prove the Qur’an incorrect but continue to fail miserably.

So why were the other original scriptures not preserved if they were the Word of God (Allah)?
Muslims believe that the old scriptures when revealed to Jesus and Moses (Peace Be Upon Them) were the word of God (Allah), but God (Allah) never preserved them because they were revealed for the people of that time and not for the whole of Humanity.

The Qur’an mentions in several verses, that it is meant for all of Humanity. This is why today, the Qur’an continues to reveal signs which match modern science and keeps up with us even today. I would like to clear at this point that the Qur’an is not a book of science but a book of signs.

Another question which I came across, Was the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) the founder of Islam 1400 years ago?

Millions of people seem to think Islam was only discovered 1400 years ago by the Prophet Mohammed (Peace Be Upon Him). Islam was not discovered 1400 years ago, but has always existed, the Qur’an was the final message and the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) was the final messenger of Allah (God). Jesus and Moses (Peace Be Upon Them) were also messengers. There were thousands of messengers but God has only mentioned the most recent.

God mentioned within the Quran, He will protect the Quran from corruption. This is why today you will find the Qur’an the same around the World. Millions have revised the Arabic off by heart which shows Allah (God) chose the language wisely. If we turn to the other scriptures, they were written in different languages such as the Bible’s original form was Ancient Hebrew/Greek but not many speak or read the language today. This is another sign to Muslims, that the Bible was sent down for the people of that time and not the whole of Humanity.

If a change was to occur within the Qur’an today, it would be noticed by millions of Muslims around the world who have revised the complete Qur’an off by heart.

Another common question is, The Prophet Mohammad (Peace Be Upon Him) made up the Qur’an. If you carry out your research as I did, you will find that the Qur’an could not have been made up. This was one of the reasons which inspired me to create this website. The Qur’an continues to reveal signs which could not have been known by humans over 1400 years ago, including the Universe, Human Creation, The Water Cycle and much more in such great detail that no one could have known at the time. If it was made up, it would today include many mistakes and Muslims would start questioning the verses.

Finally, another question you may come across, The Qur’an was copied from the Bible. Muslims believe the original Bible when revealed to Jesus (Peace Be Upon Him) was the word from God (Allah). The Qur’an was the final message, so of course the books will be similar but the Qur’an includes updated information from God for the whole of Humanity and thousands of signs which do not exist in the Bible. Basically, the Qur’an is seen as the final version.

Light Of Moon Is Reflected

The Moon is Earth’s closest neighbour with an airless world that orbits the Earth. The Moon is pulled towards planet Earth by the gravity of Earth, but because the Moon is far away and is moving at a perfect pace around Earth, it will never fall down or drift away. If the Moon was moving a lot faster then it is today, it would escape Earth’s gravity and shoot off into space. But if the Moon was moving much more slowly, gravity would pull it down to the Earth. The Moon is travelling at the right speed and away at the right distance to keep it in orbit around Earth.

Moving on to the Moon’s reflected light, in the ealier days it was thought that the light from the moon was its own light. But science later discovered the light from the Moon is not it’s own light but reflected. The Qur’an mentions verses relating to the moons light over 1400 years ago.

“Blessed is He Who made Constellations in the skies, And placed therein
a Lamp And a Moon giving light.” (Holy Qur’an 25:61)

Other translations of the above verse:
Sahih International: Blessed is He who has placed in the sky great stars and placed therein a [burning] lamp and luminous moon.
Pickthall: Blessed be He Who hath placed in the heaven mansions of the stars, and hath placed therein a great lamp and a moon giving light!
Yusuf Ali: Blessed is He Who made constellations in the skies, and placed therein a Lamp and a Moon giving light;
Shakir: Blessed is He Who made the constellations in the heavens and made therein a lamp and a shining moon.
Muhammad Sarwar: Blessed is He who has established constellations in the sky and made therein a lamp and a shining moon.
Mohsin Khan: Blessed be He Who has placed in the heaven big stars, and has placed therein a great lamp (sun), and a moon giving light.
Arberry: Blessed be He who has set in heaven constellations, and has set among them a lamp, and an illuminating moon.

In the above verse, the word “light” is used for the Moon (“nooran” in Arabic) and the word “lamp” for the Sun (“sirajan” in Arabic.) The word used for the Moon refers to a light reflecting, bright and a motionless body. The word used for the Sun refers to a celestial body which is always burning, a constant source of heat and light.

The Qur’an also mentions:

“See ye not How Allah has created The seven heavens One above
another, “And made the moon A light in their midst, and made the sun
As a (Glorious) Lamp?” (Holy Qur’an 71:15-16)

Other translations of the above verse:
Sahih International: And made the moon therein a [reflected] light and made the sun a burning lamp?
Pickthall: And hath made the moon a light therein, and made the sun a lamp?
Yusuf Ali: And made the moon a light in their midst, and made the sun as a (Glorious) Lamp?
Shakir: And made the moon therein a light, and made the sun a lamp?
Muhammad Sarwar: and placed therein the moon as a light
Mohsin Khan: And has made the moon a light therein, and made the sun a lamp?
Arberry: and set the moon therein for a light and the sun for a lamp?

And

It is He Who created the sun radiating and the moon shining and appointed positions for it, for you to know the number of the years, and the account; Allah has not created it except with the truth; He explains the verses in detail for the people of knowledge (Qur’an, 10:5)

Other translations of the above verse:
Sahih International: It is He who made the sun a shining light and the moon a derived light and determined for it phases – that you may know the number of years and account [of time]. Allah has not created this except in truth. He details the signs for a people who know
Pickthall: He it is Who appointed the sun a splendour and the moon a light, and measured for her stages, that ye might know the number of the years, and the reckoning. Allah created not (all) that save in truth. He detaileth the revelations for people who have knowledge.
Yusuf Ali: It is He Who made the sun to be a shining glory and the moon to be a light (of beauty), and measured out stages for her; that ye might know the number of years and the count (of time). Nowise did Allah create this but in truth and righteousness. (Thus) doth He explain His Signs in detail, for those who understand.
Shakir: He it is Who made the sun a shining brightness and the moon a light, and ordained for it mansions that you might know the computation of years and the reckoning. Allah did not create it but with truth; He makes the signs manifest for a people who know.
Muhammad Sarwar: It is God who has made the sun radiant and the moon luminous and has appointed for the moon certain phases so that you may compute the number of years and other reckonings. God has created them for a genuine purpose. He explains the evidence (of His existence) to the people of knowledge.
Mohsin Khan: It is He Who made the sun a shining thing and the moon as a light and measured out its (their) stages, that you might know the number of years and the reckoning. Allah did not create this but in truth. He explains the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) in detail for people who have knowledge.
Arberry: It is He who made the sun a radiance, and the moon a light, and determined it by stations, that you might know the number of the years and the reckoning. God created that not save with the truth, distinguishing the signs to a people who know.

Who would have known this over 1400 years ago? Nothing from the Qur’an has been proven incorrectly and there are many verses which have not yet been discovered by modern science.

Yes, you may find those desperatly trying to find inconsistencies within the Qur’an to prove incorrect, and have been trying for over 1400 years. Another powerful verse within the Qur’an mentions:

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

For those who think the Qur’an was just made up by the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), one must be very confident to be able to write such a verse. Lots have attempted to find consistencies within the Qur’an but failed miserably. I would recommend you read the Qur’an with an open mind and judge for yourself. It is truly an amazing book.

Does God Exist?

The BIG question which goes through the minds of millions from around the world, DOES GOD EXIST?

This is a topic which has been debated in every part of the World for centuries. We question the creations around us, such as the Sun, the Water Cycle, the Moon’s Orbit, Human Creation and more. Can we prove God exists? How did the Universe come into existence?

We are fortunate today to have humans and technology controlling the traffic on our roads, the sea and the skies. There are millions of people and various technology helping control such a complex transport network around the World, yet millions of accidents and collisions still occur.

If we move up to Space, we know through the discoveries of Science that the Earth, Sun, Moon and other planets have revolved for billions of years. According to NASA’s website, Earth rotates at 1,000mph and it takes 24 hours for the Earth to rotate completely. The Moon takes around 27.32 days to complete a rotation around the Earth. By comparison to the speed of the Earth, the Moon rotates about 10mph. The gravitional force of the Earth keeps the Moon pulled down towards it and the Moon orbits at the perfect speed. Any faster, the Moon would speed off into space and any slower, it would be pulled down crashing to Earth.

The Earth where about 8 billion people reside today has a circumference of 40,000km. The circumference of the Sun is 4.3 million km. The Sun and its 8 planets along with 100 billion stars are in the Milky Way Galaxy which is 100,000 light years away. The Milky Way is a Galaxy among thousands of Galaxies that form a Cluster. This Cluster with thousands of other Clusters form one Super Cluster and thousands of Super Clusters form the Universe with a length of 30 billion light years away according to Scientists. It’s amazing to know how such a complex system within our Universe works without the planets colliding and no control.

Most religions believe the Universe was created by God. Scientists believe a big bang brought the Universe into existence and all the planets and stars were formed. Scientists discovered that since the Big Bang, the Universe is continuosly expanding and one day the Universe will stop expanding and fold in to itself known as the Big Crunch Theory. This will bring an end to the Universe.

Whilst researching the miracles within the Muslim scripture (The Qur’an), I was amazed to find that the Big Bang, the Big Crunch theory and the expanding of the Universe were all mentioned within the Qur’an over 1400 years ago. I have provided more detail further down the post which you will come to shortly.

God mentioned the Universe in great detail within the Qur’an which was revealed over 1400 years ago and at a time when the technology we have today did not exist.

 One of the verses mentioned within the Qur’an is:

“And the moon – We have determined for it phases, until it returns [appearing] like the old date stalk. It is not allowable for the sun to reach the moon, nor does the night overtake the day, but each, in an orbit, is swimming. (Qur’an, 36:39-40)”

The above verse includes a couple of miracles in itself. The Qur’an mentions the orbit of the Moon and Sun but also the shape of the Moons orbit like the old date stalk. This verse was revealed by God when the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) was questioned by people at the time, whether the Moon would ever clash with the Sun. I won’t go into this in great detail but you can read the article The Moons Orbit for more detail. Who would have known this 1400 years ago? Scientists discovered this much later using technology which did not exist at the time.

Whilst on the topic of the Universe, I would like to expand on another miracle within the Qur’an which I mentioned above. In the 1920′s, when the new 100″ telescope was constructed at the Mount Wilson Observatory, Edwin Powell discovered that the Universe was not static, but was continuosly expanding. The Qur’an mentions the Universe’s expansion over 1400 years ago. Who would have known this at the time? For further info, you can read the article The Universe Is Expanding. The Qur’an mentions much more regards the Universe, this is just a part of it.

In the earlier days it was thought that the light of the Moon was its own light. But modern science later discovered the light from the Moon is not it’s own light but reflected. The Qur’an mentions verses related to the Moon’s light over 1400 years ago. You can read more here Is Moon’s Light Reflected. One of the verses mentioned is below:

“Blessed is He Who made Constellations in the skies, And placed therein
a Lamp And a Moon giving light.” (Holy Qur’an 25:61)

Who would have known this over 1400 years ago?

You may have heard about the two seas which do not mix. Both sea’s have their own temperature, salinity and density. Mediterranean sea water is warm, saline, and less dense, compared to Atlantic ocean water. No matter how much they clash, the large waves and tides, you will discover the sea’s as two, as if there is an invisible barrier between them.

The verse mentions:

“It is He Who has Let free the two bodies Of flowing water: One palatable and sweet, And the other salty and bitter; Yet has He Made a barrier between them, And a partition that is forbidden To be passed.” (Qur’an 25:53)

For further info read The Barrier Between The Two Seas

There is much more, as mentioned above, the Qur’an includes a verse covering The Big Bang over 1400 years ago.

The verse is:

Do not the Unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together (as one unit of creation), before we clove them asunder? We made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe? (Quran, 21:30)

For further info you can read, The Big Bang Mentioned within The Quran

You may have noticed that the above verse mentions “We made from water every living thing”. As we are all aware science has advanced at rapid speed over the years and we now know that Cytoplasm, the basic substance of the cell is made up of around 80% water. Science has discovered that most organisms are made up of 50% – 90% water. You can read more at
Every Living Thing Made Of Water. This was mentioned over 1400 years ago but revealed within the Arabian deserts whilst there was a shortage of water. If the verses of the Qur’an were made up, would someone really want to make up such a verse when there was a shortage of water. The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) had to reveal all that was sent to them as it was delivered from God via the angel Gabriel. Who would have known this over 1400 years ago?

The Qu’ran also mentions Embryology in great detail (The human creation). Up until recently it was thought that the gender of a baby was determined by the mothers cell(s). You can read more at The Birth Of A Human Being. Over 1400 years ago, the following verses were mentioned within the Qur’an:

“He has created both sexes, male and female from a drop of semen which has been ejected.” (Qur’an, 53:45-46)

Was he not a drop of ejaculated sperm, then a blood clot which He created and shaped, making from it both sexes, male and female? (Qur’an, 75:37-39)

Another verse which amazed me was:

“Recite: In the name of your Lord Who created man from alaq. Recite: And your Lord is the Most Generous.” (Qur’an, 96:1-3)

The word ‘alaq’ in Arabic mentioned in the above verse is something that clings. The word used describes leeches that cling to a body to suck blood. It was recently discovered and approved of by Professor Keith Moore that the Embryo looks like a leech! 

Not long ago, a group of young Arab students/Scholars went through a task of collecting all information mentioning Embryology from the Qur’an, and followed the instructions of the Qur’an from Chapter: 25:59) which says, “Ask the person who knows.”

All the information which was gathered from the Qur’an was translated into English and presented to Professor Dr Keith Moore who was the head of the department of Embryology in the University of Toronto located in Canada. Currently, Professor Dr Keith Moore is regarded as one of the highest authorities in the field of Embryology throughout the World.

After all the information was passed to Keith Moore, he was asked to give his opinion regarding the information concerning the field of Embryology mentioned within the Qur’an. After Keith Moore carefully examined the translation presented to him, he said that most of the information concerning Embryology mentioned in the Qur’an is in perfect conformity with modern discoveries in the field of Embryology and does not in any way conflict with them, BUT there were a few verses on which he could not comment as to whether they were right or wrong since the information provided by these verses was yet to be discovered or confirmed and also as there was no mention of these facts in modern writings and studies on Embryology.

But Professor Keith Moore had no knowledge that an Embryo in the initial stages looked like a leech as mentioned within the Qur’an. Fortunetly, Keith Moore had access to the Technology to confirm whether the verse within the Qur’an was true or false. Keith studied the initial stage of the Embryo under a very powerful microscope in his laboratory and compared what he observed with a diagram of a leech. The results were shocking, Keith was astonished at the resemblance between the two, both looked the same.

In the same manner Keith Moore also acquired more information on Embryology, which he was not aware of and was already mentioned within the Qur’an.

Prof. Keith Moore had earlier authored the book titled, “The Developing Human”. After acquiring new knowledge from the Qur’an, in the year 1992 he wrote a new edition of the book for which he got an award for the best medical book written by a single author.

This book has been translated into several major languages of the world and is used as a text book of embryology in the first year of medical studies. Professor Keith Moore had no hesitation in accepting the Qur’an to be a divine revelation and Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) to be a Messenger of God.

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.

The Qur’an mentions much more, you will be surprised. All of the above and the ones I will be listing below have been confirmed by modern Science! Who would have known this over 1400 years ago? The Technology did not exist.

1) The Universe started from smoke. Read The Universe started from Smoke
2) The first sense to develop within an Embryo is the hearing – Read Hearing Is Developed First
3) Scientists discovered the sun rotates – Read The Sun Rotates
4) The 7 layers of Earths atmosphere are mentioned within the Qur’an over 1400 years ago – Read The 7 layers of Earths atmosphere
5) The end of the Universe and the Big Crunch Theory – Read The Universe Will End
6) We only discovered the depths of our Oceans in detail after the first Submarine was developed. The Qur’an mentions the depths of our oceans over 1400 years ago – Read The Darkness Within The Depths Of The Ocean
7) Did you know the mountains act like pegs and help stabalize the Earth. This was mentioned within the Qur’an over 1400 years ago. Read Mountains Act As Pegs

There are much more such miracles on this website but nothing compared to the vast detail the Qur’an includes. I have only described a few of the miracles mentioned within the Qur’an on this website but there are around 1,000 verses related to Science within the Qur’an !

Whilst carrying out my research I realised 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 keep up with modern science even after 1400 years. Who could have known such Science facts over 1400 years ago? Science facts which Modern Science has proven correct only after the development of powerful technology which we are lucky to have today. 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 and many scientists have publically agreed that no human being could have made up such verses.

Who could have known all this over 1400 years ago? Who could have known about the Embyrology stages in such detail over 1400 years ago? Who could have known about the Water Cycle over 1400 years ago? Such detail which modern science has confirmed could not have been proven without the use of technology which exists today. Human beings are not able to dive more then 40/50 meters into the depth of the oceans without the support of specially designed equipment so who would have known details of our deep oceans over 1400 years ago without the use of a Submarine or specialist equipment?

Another amazing part of the Qur’an is, God has mentioned that if the Qur’an was not from God, we would find many inconsistencies. Not just this, but God also mentions that the Qur’an will be guarded and protected from corruption. The verses mentioned are:

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

and

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

Over 1400 years later the Qur’an remains unchanged and continues to keep up with modern science. If humans made up the Qur’an 1400 years ago as some believe, mentioning such verses in so much confidence would have proved very risky. Mentioning verses related to science knowing that they may be proven incorrect in the future and being so confident to reveal that if the Qur’an was not the word from God, humans would find many inconsistencies.

If the verses from the Qur’an were made up by humans the individual who put the verses together would have been a genius who could predict the future and science discoveries with a 100% guess rate.

In another powerful verse which I found very interesting was where God challenges others to create a fly if they can. No one can create a fly from nothing. The verse mentioned within the Qur’an is:

“…Lo! Those on whom ye call beside Allah will never create a fly though they combine together for the purpose. And if the fly took something from them, they could not rescue it from him. So weak are (both) the seeker and the sought!” [Quran 22:73]

For those who think the Qur’an has changed over time, if a change was to occur within the Qur’an today or in the past, it would be noticed by millions of Muslims around the world who have revised the complete Qur’an off by heart. You will not find the Arabic version of the Qur’an different anywhere around the World, as it’s the same.

Another common question is I want to see God? If God was to appear the test would be over as everyone would start to follow the correct path. We are here on Earth for a reason, to carry out good deeds and worship the creator God. The World is the test centre where we are being examined but the result we will know later. We humans want to see God, yet can not stare at the Sun for more then a few seconds.

Analyse the creations around you, humans, the heart, vision, hearing, clouds, animals, insects, plants, fruit, space, the weather, the planets orbit, planets don’t collide, the sun rises every morning, the expansion of the Universe, 7 layers of earths atmosphere, the moon, and think, could all this have happened with a Big Bang alone? Did the Big Bang just happen or was it initiated? Who can answer the miracles within the Qur’an?

Mountains Act As Pegs

The beautiful mountains which surround us, relaxing, provide water and a joy for climbers. Do they have any other use for us? Yes, did you know they help stabalize the earth?

For example, Mount Everest, the summit of which stands approximately 9km high above the surface of the Earth, has a root deeper than 125km into the Earth.

Geologists have proven that if Earth was completely flat, it would have been in a constant vibration. Mountains stabilize the earth during its rotation around its own axis. The Earth is travelling at around 1,000mph around its own axis, yet we don’t feel it.

mountains-deep-roots
Mountains have deep roots under the surface of the ground. (Earth, Press and Siever, p. 413.)

Mountains-Act-As-Pegs

The Quran mentions the verse:

“Have We not
made The earth as a wide Expanse,  and the mountains as pegs?” (Qur’an, 78:6-7)

And below are translations from other translators:
Sahih International: And the mountains as stakes?
Pickthall: And the high hills bulwarks?
Yusuf Ali: And the mountains as pegs?
Shakir: And the mountains as projections (thereon)?
Muhammad Sarwar: and the mountains as pegs (to anchor the earth)?
Mohsin Khan: And the mountains as pegs?
Arberry: and the mountains as pegs?

and further verses mention:

“And We have set on the earth Mountains standing firm, Lest it should shake with them.” (Qur’an, 21:31)

“And the mountains Hath He firmly fixed.” (Qur’an, 79:32)

“And at the mountains, how they are rooted and fixed firm?: (Qur’an, 88:19)

“He has created the heavens without any pillars, that you see and has set on the earth firm mountains, lest it should shake with you. And He has scattered therein moving (living) creatures of all kinds. And We send down water (rain) from the sky, and We cause (plants) of every goodly kind to grow therein.” (Qur’an, 31:10)

“And He has affixed into the earth mountains standing firm, lest it should shake with you, and rivers and roads, that you may guide yourselves.” (Quran, 16:15)

Mountains act like pegs, similar to pegs which hold down a tent, but in a much greater scale. This has been proven correct by modern geology research. The above verses were revealed over 1400 years ago at a time when no human would have known this without the use of hi-tech equipment which did not exist.

Who can deny such verses to be incorrect and who would want to make such verses up. If the Qur’an was made up with guess work, the individual would have been a very good guesser with a 100% guess rate. The Earth rotates at around 1,000 mph hour, yet we don’t feel it and the Qur’an revealed why over 1400 years ago.

The verses above are truly amazing. The Qur’an goes in to greater detail regards the Universe, this is just a glimpse.

God knows best.
