1-  Noble Verse 12:4 about the 11 planets, the sun and the moon:

The Noble Quran is filled with scientific statements and notions.  These are statements of Allah Almighty describing how He created things on earth and in the Universe.  What's most amazing is that all of these scientific statements and notions had been proven to be in perfect agreement with science and our modern-day scientific discoveries.  Allah Almighty made the Noble Quran be Prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) Everlasting Divine Miracle and proof for Prophethood.  The Holy Book certainly stood the test of time 1,500 years ago with Its Claims, Prophecies and Miraculous language eloquence, and it does again and again in our day today with Its overwhelming agreement with science and discoveries that were not known to man 1,500 years ago.

Allah Almighty Said: "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?  (The Noble Quran, 41:53)"

With this said, let us now look at what Allah Almighty Said in the Noble Quran.  The following Noble Verse is quite an interesting Prophecy:

Noble Verse(s) 12:4
Arabic (Read from right to left.  Also, all png image files: [1] [2]):

12:4 اذ قال يوسف لابيه يا ابت اني رايت احد عشر كوكبا والشمس والقمر رايتهم لي ساجدين

Dr. Munir Munshey (one of www.answering-christianity.com's authors):

[012:004]  Once, Yusuf said to his father, “Oh my father! I had a dream. I saw eleven planets, the sun and the moon lying prostrate before me!”

Pickthall:

[012:004]  When Joseph said unto his father: O my father! Lo! I saw in a dream eleven planets and the sun and the moon, I saw them prostrating themselves unto me.

Khalifa: (why is he here?)

[012:004]  Recall that Joseph said to his father, "O my father, I saw eleven planets, and the sun, and the moon; I saw them prostrating before me."

احد عشر كوكبا means eleven planets.

Planet in Arabic literally means كوكب, which is the Word used in Noble Verse 12:4 above.  See also Google Translate:

Star in Arabic literally means نجم:

نجم in Arabic is also used for movie stars and celebrities.

  

  

2-  The Scientific Proofs:

  
Article #1:

And indeed, our solar system today is popularly known to consist of our sun, moon and 11 planets.  The following is from National Geographic:

The book details are as follows from https://www.amazon.com/11-Planets-View-Solar-System/dp/1426302363:

"National Geographic proudly presents the essential reference book for what is now officially a NEW AGE in space.

In August 2006, the International Astronomical Union redefined the word "planet" and relegated Pluto to the status of a dwarf planet, along with Ceres and Eris. Naturally, National Geographic is there to map out this new view of our solar system. In 11 Planets, David Aguilar, an expert who works on the leading edge of this astounding shift, explains and explores our new galactic knowledge.

Using spectacular computer artwork, exclusive to National Geographic, and simple engaging text, this colorful book profiles all 11 planets in our newly categorized solar system: terrestrial Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars; gas giants Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune; and dwarf planets Pluto, Ceres, and Eris. The author of the hugely popular Planets, Stars, and Galaxies now leads young minds through into this exciting new view of space, giving readers a vivid "you are there" sensation through his photorealistic artwork.

David Aguilar’s 11 Planets is a simple yet compelling introduction to the solar system as it is now classified. This beautiful volume also includes informative spreads on: The Sun Earth’s moon Mars’ moons, Phobos and Diemos Ceres, one of the new dwarf planets The Asteroid Belt Pluto and its moon, Charon Sedna and Eggland, two large Kuiper Belt objects Saturn's rings and moons Comets and the Oort Cloud Other new worlds now being discovered

This engaging volume also includes fun activities for young readers. Aguilar’s text presents the latest discoveries in space to young imaginations in a compelling and scientifically accurate way, encouraging understanding of mankind’s new view of our solar system. This is the volume that every library needs; and the book that every child should have access to as the ultimate reference for the new age in space."

3-  Could this be an End of Times Sign like human cloning and alteration in the Glorious Quran?

There are scientists that say there could be as many as 400 planets in our solar system.  Not just 11.  But since our scientists have determined that our solar system's most relevant and main planets are eleven, then could Noble Verse 12:4 be an end-of-times Sign in the Glorious Quran?  We know that having stunning Prophecies and Signs and Miracles in the Glorious Quran is nothing new.  The Holy Book is filled with overwhelming Scientific and Numerical Miracles and Prophecies:

Other examples:

1-  The Quran Prophecy of going up to space.

2-  The Quran Prophecy about Allah Almighty revealing the Scientific and Numerical Miracles to us to prove that the Quran is indeed GOD Almighty's Truth.

www.answering-christianity.com/sci_prophecy.htm

Could the discovery of all of the 11 planets in our solar system be a fulfillment of an end-of-times Prophecy in Noble Verse 12:4Ample more examples for Scientific and Numerical Miracles:

  

Quran's STUNNING Divine Miracles: [1]

Here are some of my favorite Stunning Scientific Miracles in the Glorious Quran from among the tens (10s) that are listed in the main sections, below:

1-  Here is one stunning Numerical Miracle, from the 10s below, for you:

The Glorious Quran has 114 Chapters. The sum of those Chapters is 6555 (1+2+...+114 = 6555). There are also 6236 Noble Verses in the Glorious Quran. Now, IF YOU ADD EACH CHAPTER # with the number of its Verses, then you get a list of numbers. So 1 (first Chapter) + 7 (# of its Verses) = 8. Do this for all Chapters.

1-  The sum of the odd numbers from the list = 6555.
2-  The sum of the even numbers from the list = 6236.

See the XLS file for 100% confirmation.
  

2-  The Great Miracle.  Allah Almighty in the Holy Quran called the Number 19 Miracle "One of the Mighty Ones (Miracles)" (74:30-37) [1] [2].  See the 100s of Noble Verses that clearly testify to this Great Miracle.  Also, did you know that Allah Almighty Said in Surat Nuh (that's Noble Chapter Nuh (Noah)) that Prophet Noah lived for 950 years among his people. 

Yet, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty Alone, the entire Noble Surah is exactly written in 950 Letters [1] [2]!  You can thoroughly see this in the scanned images that thoroughly verify every single Noble Letter, in the links.  Click on the links to see the many other Numerical Miracles in the Holy Quran.  Also, see the Numerical Miracles section along with all of the other great sections.  Also, 1,000s of examples in zip & PDF (fonts) files all demonstrated in this article!

  
3-  19 X 115 = 2185 Number 19 and BASMALA Miracle.  The total numerical value of Noble Verses 74:30-37 themselves, which are the heart of the Number 19 Miracle, has a stunning Miracle in it.  The value of these Noble Verses matches the multiplication of the BASMALA's number of letters (19 Letters) and their total numerical values (115): 19 X 115 = 2185.  The Basmala, which full text in Arabic means "In the Name of Allah The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful" is the Key to the Glorious Quran.  It is recited first before reading the Holy Quran, and it is also obligatory upon every Muslim to start with the Basmala before starting any task.  Again, 1,000s of examples in zip & PDF (fonts) files all demonstrated in this article!

"When the sky disintegrates, and turns rose colored like paint (
وردة كالدهان)." (The Noble Quran, 55:37) [2] [3]
  

  

The Glorious Quran declares that the earth is spherical: [1]
  
Allah Almighty in the Glorious Quran said that earth is:

       -  Spherical: "egg-shaped" [1].
       -  Is rotating around itself.
       -  Is moving in space in curvy orbits [2].
       -  Is in constant motion.
       -  Is suspended in space.
       -  Is swimming in space.
       -  Is traveling through the constantly expanding universe [3].
       -  The sunsetless North Pole miracle in the Glorious Quran [4]. 

  • At the top of the North Pole, the sun never sets, and I showed the video for that, and also quoted the scientific sources for that. Also in the lands near by, it almost never sets either, and I quoted sources for that as well, and also showed pictures of the "polar night" skies on these lands.
  •        -  The Glorious Quran also speaks about many earths [5] and not just earth.
           -  The Glorious Quran predicts
    11 planets in our solar system [6].

      
    This is also all demonstrated in good details in the following

    Not a coincident!

    It is not a coincident that the miracles-filled Glorious Quran would speak about 11 planets and the sun and the moon in Noble Verse 12:4.  This statement in the Noble Verse is clearly about our earth-local perspective (our 11 planets, and our sun and our moon).  Even if our sun has 100s of planets, it still doesn't take away that scientists have determined that our solar system consists of 11 main planets and our moon and our sun:

    1. Mercury
    2. Venus
    3. Earth
    4. Mars
    5. Jupiter
    6. Saturn
    7. Uranus
    8. Neptune
    9. Pluto
    10. Ceres
    11. Eris

    It wasn't a lucky statement and/or a chance.  Allah Almighty gave us ample Signs and evidence in the Glorious Quran, and gave us 1000s (literally) of Numerical Miracles in the Glorious Quran.  I have posted a zip file containing all of the scanned images in the link.  So I believe there is something very big about the mentioning of 11 planets in Noble Verse 12:4, 1400 years ago, and our time today.  What is it?  Only Allah Almighty alone Knows.

      

    Spherical Earth in Islam:

    Let us look at what the Hadiths (Prophet Muhammad's Sayings) and the Glorious Quran say about the shape of our planet earth:

    Prophet Muhammad's Hadith (saying) [1] [2] [3] regarding the rising and setting POINTS:


    (Play video file: [1] [2])

    Prophet Muhammad: The sun is in constant orbit always rising on people while setting on others.

    عن ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما ان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم سئل :هذه المغارب اين تغرب ؟ وهذه المطالع اين تطلع ؟ فقال صلى الله عليه وسلم هي على رسلها لا تبرح ولا تزول , تغرب عن قوم وتطلع على قوم ,وتغرب عن قوم وتطلع , فقوم يقولون غربت ,وقوم يقولون طلعت

    "Ibn Abbas narrated on Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, that the Prophet was asked: Where does the sun go after all of these sunsets? And where does it come from after all of these sunrises? The Prophet, peace be upon him, replied: It is in constant motion. It doesn't stop nor disappear. It sets on people and rises on others, and it sets on people and rises on others. So people would say it has risen while others say it has set."

    4-  Conclusion:

    Again, the Noble Quran is filled with scientific statements and notions.  These are statements of Allah Almighty describing how He created things on earth and in the Universe.  What's most amazing is that all of these scientific statements and notions had been proven to be in perfect agreement with science and our modern-day scientific discoveries.  Allah Almighty made the Noble Quran be Prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) Everlasting Divine Miracle and proof for Prophethood.  The Holy Book certainly stood the test of time 1,500 years ago with Its Claims, Prophecies and Miraculous language eloquence, and it does again and again in our day today with Its overwhelming agreement with science and discoveries that were not known to man 1,500 years ago.

    There is nothing coincidental about the mentioning of 11 planets and our sun and our moon in Noble Verse 12:4, and yet, scientists today have determined that our solar system consists of 11 main planets:
    1. Mercury

    7. Uranus
    8. Neptune
    9. Pluto
    10. Ceres
    11. Eris
    Indeed, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty Alone for making the Noble Quran be the Perfect and Everlasting Miracle, for us humans, out of all of His Divine Miracles!  And may Allah Almighty send His Peace, Mercy and Blessings upon our Beloved and Blessed Prophet, Teacher and Role Model, Muhammad.  Ameen.

    Moon Orbit Miracle:

    This is the short version of the long article below.  Allah Almighty said this about the moon's S-shaped orbit around the earth:

    36:39 والقمر قدرناه منازل حتى عاد كالعرجون القديم

    "And We have decreed set phases for the moon, until it ends up عاد looking like an old date branch كالعرجون القديم. It is not for the sun to overtake the moon nor for the night to outstrip the day; each one is swimming in a sphere. (Qur'an, 36:39-40)"

    The egg-shaped earth's orbit!

    This is not the only time Allah Almighty used a notion for astronomy.  In another Noble Verse, He described the shape of the earth's orbit around the sun as egg-shaped which had also been confirmed by science.

    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? with detailed proofs demonstrating the miracle of the Word/Notion "dahaha".

    Answering Trinity.

    Ask me any question.

    Corruption in the Old Testament.

    Answering Trinity.

    The New Testament confirms the Apocalypse (Revelation in Greek) of Peter which claims that Jesus never died on the cross!

    Crucifixion of Jesus is a lie according to several of the Disciples' early writings.

    Also see detailed refutations to Exodus 12:46, Numbers 9:12, Zechariah 12:10 and Psalm 34:20 that supposedly suggest that GOD Almighty was going to get pierced on the cross.

    History of Man's corruption of the Bible.

    The New Testament was not even written by its original authors.

    The "God" title in Isaiah 9:6 was given to others before and after Jesus.

    The early Christians rejected Trinity and never believed in it.

    Contradictions in the resurrection story in the Bible.

    Was Jesus crucified on a tree (according to Peter), cross (according to others), or never got crucified (according to Islam)?

    We only believe in Jesus' personal quotes as closest to the truth.

    Jesus according to Islam never got killed on the cross.  Allah Almighty saved him.

    The blessed Jesus in Islam.

    Do Psalm 16:8-11 refer to Jesus' resurrection as the book of Acts suggest?

    Jesus was never crucified according to the Gospel of Barnabas.

    Isaiah 42-54 seem to predict Islam and the removal of GOD Almighty's Covenant from the people of Israel.

    Deconstructing Isaiah 53 & the crucifixion/resurrection of Jesus - Exposing Paul's inventions.

    None of Jesus' disciples witnessed the crucifixion. They "all fled" and "deserted" Jesus. This further confirms Islam's claims.

      

    Isaiah 53, Psalm 91, 116 disprove Crucifixion:

  • Matthew 24:25-27: Jesus will return as an Arab from Syria.  Mentioned in the Bible and Islam.
      
  • Psalm 116:16 Jesus and his mother, Mary, both thanked GOD Almighty for saving Jesus from harm and death.
      
  • Isaiah 53:10 and Psalm 91:16 indisputably confirm that Jesus never got crucified.  Both Jesus and satan even referenced them in the NT during their conversation.
      
  • Questions about Jesus prove he is not GOD.
      
  • Which Jesus was released and which was crucified?  There were two Jesuses with Pontus Pilot.  Not just one.
      
  • What is the best way to convert a non-Muslim to Islam?
