Important Notes on the Scientific Notions
in the Noble Quran:

Why does the Noble Quran use words that have multiple meanings?

Why should we accept the scientific meaning of the Word in the Noble Quran that fits our discoveries today, and not accept any of its other meanings, especially that the Word was revealed 1,500 years ago?


1-  The use of scientific notions in the Noble Quran:

It is important to know that the Noble Quran doesn't give scientific equations.  It instead gives many scientific notions that had been proven today to be clear Scientific Miracles because they fit perfectly with modern science.  One of the Divine Miracles of the Noble Quran is that Allah Almighty (through His perfect use of the complex and artistic language of Arabic) used scientific notions to make the Noble Quran truly dynamic for all the times that It is presented in. These scientific notions hid in them, for many centuries, the scientific statements and discoveries that we just came to know today, and perhaps are even hiding in them more statements that our future generations will discover.  These notions are basically key words and/or terms that describe certain creations of GOD Almighty.  For example:

1-  Allah Almighty in one Word said that the Universe is expanding and in another term said it will shrink back again.  Science confirmed that today through the big bang and the cosmic crunch theories.

2-  Allah Almighty in two Words mentioned the layers of waves and darkness inside the vast oceans.  Science today, again, confirmed that.

3-  Allah Almighty in one Word said that He made the earth as an egg.  We all know today that earth is spherical and science did confirm that the earth is indeed egg-shaped.  Please visit: If the Noble Quran says the earth is "egg-shaped" through a Notion, then why couldn't Prophet Muhammad just say it clear in plain Arabic? (detailed proofs demonstrating the miracle of the Word/Notion "dahaha").

4-  Allah Almighty in few terms in several Noble Verses said that mountains prevent the earth from shaking.  Science today did indeed confirm that mountains stabilize the earth and prevent it from constantly shaking while it is rotating around its own axle.

5-  Allah Almighty in one term talked about the earth reducing in size.  Science today indeed confirmed that earth is shrinking in size due to volcanoes and earth "debris" caused by erosions, earthquakes, sea-waves changing the shape and condition of the land and other natural factors, escaping to space.  In fact, it is estimated that earth lost approximately 10-40 miles from its radius or depth size in the past 10 or so billion years!  (I heard this from Dr. Zaghloul Al-Naggar on TV.  My numbers may not be quite accurate because I am relying on memory, but the fact of the earth shrinking is definitely true, and in the link above I have provided several quotes from Western scientists demonstrating why the earth is reducing/shrinking in size).

6-  Allah Almighty mentioned in one term the moon's fault line.  Science today confirmed that the moon's fault line, which is splitting it in half, was caused by major moonquakes.

7-  Allah Almighty in one term talked about the earth's 7 properties.  Science today confirmed that the earth has 7 inner layers and 7 atmospheric layers.

8-  Allah Almighty in one term talked about the region inside the human-brain that controls the movements.  Science today confirmed that.

Many more examples (and the list is growing) are provided at: The overwhelming Scientific Miracles in the Noble Quran section.

The Prophet of Islam, peace be upon him, was already accused of being crazy by the infidels.  Have Allah Almighty given sophisticated scientific statements that covered exact details as we scientifically know them today, then no one would've believed the Prophet of Islam, because:

1-  He wasn't a scientist and such science wasn't known to man back then, which makes it impossible for him to explain it, even if Allah Almighty Inspired it to him.  The information would not have been understood by the nomad bedouins 1,500 years ago.

2-  People had already inclined toward declaring the Prophet as an insane man, and many already did.  Any extraordinary supernatural statement that requires a lot of scientific explanations such as "we have people standing on the other side of the world (under our feet), and all humans are actually standing on the side of the earth not on its top or back."

Such statement would require knowledge in gravity and astronomy, which man did not know about 1,500 years go.

Like I said, many have accused the Prophet of being a madman.  Allah Almighty did not want to complicate Islam, especially to the people who did not know much about science:

"Say (to them O Muhammad SAW): "I exhort you on one (thing) only: that you stand up for Allahs sake in pairs and singly, and reflect (within yourselves the life history of the Prophet SAW): there is no madness in your companion (Muhammad SAW), he is only a warner to you in face of a severe torment."  (The Noble Quran, 34:46)"

"And (O people) your companion (Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) is not a madman;  (The Noble Quran, 81:22)"


That is why Allah Almighty used scientific notions instead of statements and equations.  They are for man to discover as he advances in life.  The more man advances, the more he will find that many of his discoveries are mentioned in the Noble Quran.  That is why the Noble Quran's Miracles are for all times and all places!

Again, please also visit:  The overwhelming Scientific Miracles in the Noble Quran section.

 

2-  The complex language of Arabic:

Arabic is a very complex, artistic and poetical language by nature!  A single word can mean a host of meanings.  The art and beauty of Arabic comes in how a person constructs and puts together words to form a sentence or paragraph.  The art and creativity in the style and poetry are what determine the strength and beauty of the sentence or poem.  That is why the Noble Quran is extremely difficult to understand sometimes, even by the fluent and professional Arabic speakers.  That is why Muslims always say that the translations of the Noble Quran do it absolutely no justice, because the poetry and complexity of language-art are completely compromised in the translation.  What the English reader, for instance, is left with when reading the English Noble Quran, is the subject that the Noble Verses are talking about.  But he/she doesn't see the beautiful and complex stylistic and linguistic Divine Miracle that the Arabic text carries in it.

At any rate, Allah Almighty Chose for the Noble Quran to be Difficult to comprehend, and to be quite a challenge to interpret and translate, because:

1-  He Chose to have the Miracle of the Noble Quran be an ever lasting one by living in the text of the Holy Book Itself.

2-  To demonstrate Its Divinity to the Arabs back then, who were very experienced/mature, fluent and also addicted to poetry, along with the Arabic-speaking people today, and to challenge them and to show them that certainly the Noble Quran is not just an average everyday book.  It is indeed a Divine Miracle, proving that Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, is indeed a Truthful and real Prophet.

3-  This is Allah Almighty's way to Lead to the Right Path whom He pleases and to Lead astray whom He pleases.

 

 


The Noble Quran confirms that the earth is rotating around its axle:

The sections of this article are:

1-  Allah Almighty's Divine Claim in Noble Verse 27:88.
2-  Allah Almighty did say that all of the objects in the Universes are swimming in space.
3-  The Scientific Miracle.
4-  The overlapping of the Day and Night around the Earth.
5-  The earth was created as "egg-shaped" in the Noble Quran.
6-  Why didn't Allah Almighty make a straight forward claim then?  
Why give an example
      between clouds and mountains to prove the "earth rotating around its axle" theory?

7-  The Bible and the Hindu scriptures say earth is flat.
8-  Conclusion.

 

 

 

1-  Allah Almighty's Divine Claim in Noble Verse 27:88:

Let us look at what Allah Almighty said in the Noble Quran:

"Thou seest the mountains and thinkest them firmly fixed: but they pass like the passing of the clouds: (such is) the artistry of God, who disposes of all things in perfect order: for he is well acquainted with all that ye do.  (The Noble Quran, 27:88)"

The transliteration says "....wahiya tamurru marra alsahabi....."

wa = and, but.
hiya = it, she, they.
tamurru = pass.
marra = "like the passing of", "pass like", "pass as".
al = the.
sahabi = clouds.

The following translations further prove this:

Translation of Pickthall:
And thou seest the hills 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.

Translation of Khalifa:
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.

 

 

2-  Allah Almighty did say that all of the objects in the Universes are swimming in space:

Allah Almighty said that all of the objects of the Universe are swimming; each in its orbit:

"It is He who created the night and the day, and the sun and the moon, all (the celestial bodies) swim along, each in its orbit with its own motion.  (The Noble Quran, 21:33)"

The Earth is round according to Islam.

 

 

3-  The Scientific Miracle:

Why did Allah Almighty say in the Noble Quran that the mountains pass like the clouds in the sky do?  We all know that to humans, the earth doesn't really move.   Everything is standing still, except during the times of earth quakes.

So what is the purpose from Allah Almighty telling us that the mountains are moving?   By the way, the "mountains" here is not just limited to mountains, but rather it includes the whole ground we're standing on, since like I said, to us humans, the earth doesn't move, except during the times of earth quakes.  And the mountains are obviously connected with the ground.

By the way, clouds never really move away.  They only rotate around the earth and travel above the earth; above land to land.  So if the mountains (the whole ground of earth since the mountains are part of earth) are "moving, like the clouds", then this means that the earth is also moving in circle around its axle.

So, why didn't Allah Almighty just say so?  Allah Almighty 1500 years ago did not want to make irrational and CRAZY statements that would've been refused and considered as absurd and utter nonsense to the people who lacked a great deal of knowledge about astronomy and geology.  The Miracle of the Noble Quran is that while Allah Almighty made the statement in Noble Verse 27:88 acceptable to the people back then, He also included the scientific claim in it for us today, and told us that the earth does indeed move around its axle.


In fact, Allah Almighty specifically said that in the Noble Quran:

"And the earth We have spread out; set thereon mountains firm and immovable; and produced therein all kinds of things in due balance.  (The Noble Quran, 15:19)"

"He created the heavens [sky] without any pillars that ye can see; He set on the earth mountains standing firm, lest it should shake with you; and He scattered through it beasts of all kinds.  we send down rain from the sky, and produce on the earth every kind of noble creature, in pairs.  (The Noble Quran, 31:10)"

"And He has set up on the earth mountains standing firm, lest it should shake with you; and rivers and roads; that ye may guide yourselves, and marks and signposts and by the stars (men) guide themselves.  (The Noble Quran, 16:15-16)"

Figure 8 (Click here to enlarge)
The mountains, like pegs, have deep roots embedded in the ground.  (Anatomy of the Earth, Cailleux, p. 220)
Allah Almighty said: "Have We not made the earth as a bed, and the mountains as pegs(The Noble Quran, 78:6-7)"
He the Almighty also said: "And He has set firm mountains in the earth so it would not shake with you....(The Noble Quran, 16:15)"

Please visit: The amazing creation of earth and mountains in the Noble Quran.   Science confirms that mountains prevent the earth from shaking while it is revolving around its axle.  The Noble Quran made a similar claim.


So, why did Allah Almighty say in the Noble Quran 1500 years ago that the earth is moving like the clouds?

Because the earth was scientifically proven to rotate around its axle:

"The day is defined to be the time between one dawn (or noon) and the next' i.e., the day is defined with respect to the position of the Sun in the sky. Now, the earth revolves around the sun in the sky and so the time taken for the Sun to come to the same position in the sky is longer than the time taken for the Earth to rotate once around itself. You can convince yourself about this by drawing a picture of the Earth in orbit around the Sun and rotating around itself at the same time.

So, the Earth's rotation period is actually 4 minutes less than what we call as one day. As a result of this, the Sun's position in the sky at noon is roughly fixed, but the stars slowly drift apart. So, the stars which are overhead at midnight today will slowly move in the sky until they will be overhead at noon 6 months apart.

If instead we defined a day to be the time taken by the Earth to rotate round itself exactly once, then as you mention, the Sun will be overhead on some day at midnight."

4-  The overlapping of the Day and Night around the Earth:

The overlapping of the Day over the Night and the Night over the Day is a helpful claim to Noble Verse 27:88 above.  Let us look at the following Noble Verse:

"He created the heavens and the earth in true (proportions): He makes the Night overlap the Day, and the Day overlap the Night: He has subjected the sun and the moon (to His law): Each one follows a course for a time appointed. Is not He the Exalted in Power - He Who forgives again and again?  (The Noble Quran, 39:5)"

 

 

5-  The earth was created as "egg-shaped" in the Noble Quran:

Please visit: Allah Almighty said that the earth is "egg-shaped".

The Earth is round according to Islam.

 

 

6-  Why didn't Allah Almighty make a straight forward claim then? 

Why did Allah Almighty give an example between clouds and mountains to prove the "earth rotating around its axle" theory?  Why didn't He just make a clear and direct statement?

The reason why Allah Almighty might not have said it as clear and straight forward is because it would've been impossible for people back then to have accepted Islam if the Noble Quran contained "crazy" claims in it.  So, while Noble Verse 27:88 did not sound crazy to Muslims 1500 years ago, it is most definitely an accurate Scientific Statement to us today.

Allah Almighty purposely made the Noble Quran for all times and all places.  And He purposely DID NOT make every Noble Verse be possible for interpretation 1500 years ago.   Let's look at an example:

"Over it are Nineteen.  And We have set none but angels as Guardians of the Fire; and We have fixed their number only as a trial for Unbelievers,- in order that the People of the Book may arrive at certainty, and the Believers may increase in Faith,- and that no doubts may be left for the People of the Book and the Believers, and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the Unbelievers may say, 'What symbol doth God intend by this?'  Thus doth God leave to stray whom He pleaseth, and guide whom He pleaseth: and none can know the forces of thy Lord, except He and this is no other than a warning to mankind.  (The Noble Quran, 74:30-31)"

So, while the number 19 was impossible to interpret 1500 years ago in Noble Verses 74:30-31, but by the Will of Allah Almighty, it became clear to us today.  The number 19 was proven to be a fundamental and very important number in the Computer technology today, and adding to that, the Noble Quran's numerical codes are all based on the number 19, which only the computer machine was able to calculate and figure out!

Please visit: The number 19 is miraculous in the Noble Quran and was proven to be essential in many of the Scientific Theories and Discoveries, for more details.

 

 

7-  The Bible and the Hindu scriptures say earth is flat and immovable:

The Bible suggests that the earth is a flat disc (flat circle) standing on pillars:

"He set the earth on its foundations; it can never be moved.  (From the NIV Bible, Psalm 104:5)"

"He shakes the earth from its place and makes its pillars tremble.  (From the NIV Bible, Job 9:6)"

"Where were you when I laid the earth's foundation? Tell me, if you understand.  (From the NIV Bible, Job 38:4)"

"that it might take the earth by the edges and shake the wicked out of it?  (From the NIV Bible, Job 38:13)"

"He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers.  He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in.  (From the NIV Bible, Isaiah 40:22)"  The earth being a "circle" means it is a flat disc.  And with the verses above, the earth in the Bible is a flat disc standing on pillars.


The Hindu pagan scriptures suggest that the earth is immovable:

"Sabita made this Earth fixed by different devices (like hills and mountains) and sustains sky without pillars so that it does not move" [RIK VEDA]

"The sky is immovable, the Earth is immovable and these mountains are also immovable" [RIK VEDA 10-173-4]

Please visit The Earth is flat according to the Bible.

 

 

8-  Conclusion:

Since Allah Almighty claimed that the ground we're standing on is moving like the clouds do, and the Day overlaps the Night and the Night overlaps the Day, and the earth is "egg-shaped" (Dahaha, in Arabic), and all of the Universe's objects (celestial bodies) are swimming in their orbits, then this clearly proves that Allah Almighty clearly claimed that the earth is rotating around its axle.

While the Bible and the Hindu scriptures declared false and embarrassing claims about astronomy and earth, the Noble Quran made ample claims that were proven to be accurate and Truthful today.

Also as we saw above, the Noble Quran is truly for all times and all places.   What ever science discovers and proves, we almost always end up finding it ahead of us in the Noble Quran.
