3- The Scientific Proofs.
1- Allah Almighty's Divine Claims in the Noble Quran:
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:
|Noble Verse(s) 10:5|
[010:005] 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 it; that ye might know the number of years and the count (of time). Nowise did God create this but in truth and righteousness. (Thus) doth He explain His Signs in detail, for those who understand.
Arabic (from right to left):10:5 هو الذين جعل الشمس ضياء والقمر نورا وقدره منازل لتعلموا عدد السنين والحساب ماخلق الله ذلك الا بالحق يفصل الايات لقوم يعلمون
|Noble Verse(s) 36:39|
Munir Munshey (one of
[036:039] And the moon! We destined it to return in stages until it comes back like the dried out branch of the date tree!
Arabic (from right to left):36:39 والقمر قدرناه منازل حتى عاد كالعرجون القديم
|Noble Verse(s) 6:96|
[006:096] He it is that cleaveth the day-break (from the dark): He makes the night for rest and tranquillity, and the sun and moon for the reckoning (of time): Such is the judgment and ordering of (Him), the Exalted in Power, the Omniscient.
Arabic (from right to left):6:96 فالق الاصباح وجعل الليل سكنا والشمس والقمر حسبانا ذلك تقدير العزيز العليم
|Noble Verse(s) 55:5|
Al-Hilali & Muhsin Khan:
[055:005] The sun and the moon run on their fixed courses (exactly) calculated with measured out stages for each (for reckoning, etc.).
Arabic (from right to left):
55:5 الشمس والقمر بحسبان
|Noble Verse(s) 9:36|
[009:036] The number of months in the sight of God is twelve (in a year)- so ordained by Him the day He created the heavens and the earth; of them four are sacred: that is the straight usage. So wrong not yourselves therein, and fight the Pagans all together as they fight you all together. But know that God is with those who restrain themselves.
Arabic (from right to left):9:36 ان عدة الشهور عند الله اثنا عشر شهرا في كتاب الله يوم خلق السماوات والارض منها اربعة حرم ذلك الدين القيم فلاتظلموا فيهن انفسكم وقاتلوا المشركين كافة كما يقاتلونكم كافة واعلموا ان الله مع المتقين
|Noble Verse(s) 32:5|
[032:005] He directeth the ordinance from the heaven unto the earth; then it ascendeth unto Him in a Day, whereof the measure is a thousand years of that ye reckon.
Arabic (from right to left):32:5 يدبر الامر من السماء الى الارض ثم يعرج اليه في يوم كان مقداره الف سنة مما تعدون
What about the Bible's thousand years = one-GOD Day?
Let us look at what the Bible says:
"But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. (The NIV Bible, 2 Peter 3:8)"
It is obvious that the wording of 2 Peter 3:8 is different from Noble Verse 32:5. The Noble Quran's Verse is talking about precise calculations, timing and distance of how much time it takes for Allah Almighty's Command to execute especially that Allah Almighty clearly mentioned that we must do our calculations by the Lunar calendar's calculations (10:5 the moon is precisely used for knowing the number of years and reckoning). As I mentioned in point #5 in the next section below:
"For Noble Verse 32:5, above, the speed of light is calculated accurately to the third decimal using the lunar-year calculation and the measurement, using laser, the distance and speed of the moon's orbit, in the Noble Quran. This is one of the reckonings that the lunar calculations accurately give us according to both the Noble Quran and Science."
Also, Allah Almighty gave a precise and accurate calculation from the Gregorian calendar to the Lunar one. Point #7, in the main section below, gives the detailed Scientific calculations for Noble Verse 18:25.
2 Peter 3:8, on the other hand, doesn't talk about any Lunar calculations, nor does it talk about any execution of the Commands of Allah Almighty. It only gave two general and vague statements: "...a day is like a thousand years..." and "....and a thousand years are like a day...." There don't seem to be much mathematics in these two statements.
Now certainly, it is highly probable that 2 Peter 3:8 is either a copy or a remnant of an original Divine Command from GOD Almighty. We Muslims believe that there exist either original or close-to-original commands in the man-altered and corrupt Bible .
|Noble Verse(s) 70:4|
[070:004] The angels and the spirit ascend unto him in a Day the measure whereof is (as) fifty thousand years:
Arabic (from right to left):70:4 تعرج الملائكة والروح اليه في يوم كان مقداره خمسين الف سنة
|Noble Verse(s) 18:9-18:27|
Muhammad Al-Hilali & Muhsin Khan:[018:009] Do you think that the people of the Cave and the Inscription (the news or the names of the people of the Cave) were a wonder among Our Signs?
[018:010] (Remember) when the young men fled for refuge (from their disbelieving folk) to the Cave, they said: "Our Lord! Bestow on us mercy from Yourself, and facilitate for us our affair in the right way!"[018:011] Therefore We covered up their (sense of) hearing (causing them, to go in deep sleep) in the Cave for a number of years.
[018:012] Then We raised them up (from their sleep), that We might test which of the two parties was best at calculating the time period that they had tarried.[018:013] We narrate unto you (O Muhammad SAW) their story with truth: Truly! They were young men who believed in their Lord (Allah), and We increased them in guidance.
[018:014] And We made their hearts firm and strong (with the light of Faith in Allah and bestowed upon them patience to bear the separation of their kith and kin and dwellings, etc.) when they stood up and said: "Our Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth, never shall we call upon any ilah (god) other than Him; if we did, we should indeed have uttered an enormity in disbelief.[018:015] "These our people have taken for worship aliha (gods) other than Him (Allah). Why do they not bring for them a clear authority? And who does more wrong than he who invents a lie against Allah.
[018:016] (The young men said to one another): "And when you withdraw from them, and that which they worship, except Allah, then seek refuge in the Cave, your Lord will open a way for you from His Mercy and will make easy for you your affair (i.e. will give you what you will need of provision, dwelling, etc.)."[018:017] And you might have seen the sun, when it rose, declining to the right from their Cave, and when it set, turning away from them to the left, while they lay in the midst of the Cave. That is (one) of the Ayat (proofs, evidences, signs) of Allah. He whom Allah guides, is rightly guided; but he whom He sends astray, for him you will find no Walee (guiding friend) to lead him (to the right Path).
[018:018] And you would have thought them awake, while they were asleep. And We turned them on their right and on their left sides, and their dog stretching forth his two forelegs at the entrance (of the Cave or in the space near to the entrance of the Cave (as a guard at the gate)). Had you looked at them, you would certainly have turned back from them in flight, and would certainly have been filled with awe of them.[018:019] Likewise, We awakened them (from their long deep sleep) that they might question one another. A speaker from among them said: "How long have you stayed (here)?" They said: "We have stayed (perhaps) a day or part of a day." They said: "Your Lord (Alone) knows best how long you have stayed (here). So send one of you with this silver coin of yours to the town, and let him find out which is the good lawful food, and bring some of that to you. And let him be careful and let no man know of you.
[018:020] "For if they come to know of you, they will stone you (to death or abuse and harm you) or turn you back to their religion, and in that case you will never be successful."[018:021] And thus We made their case known to the people, that they might know that the Promise of Allah is true, and that there can be no doubt about the Hour. (Remember) when they (the people of the city) disputed among themselves about their case, they said: "Construct a building over them, their Lord knows best about them," (then) those who won their point said (most probably the disbelievers): "We verily shall build a place of worship over them."
[018:022] (Some) say they were three, the dog being the fourth among them; (others) say they were five, the dog being the sixth, guessing at the unseen; (yet others) say they were seven, the dog being the eighth. Say (O Muhammad SAW): "My Lord knows best their number; none knows them but a few." So debate not (about their number, etc.) except with the clear proof (which We have revealed to you). And consult not any of them (people of the Scripture, Jews and Christians) about (the affair of) the people of the Cave.[018:023] And never say of anything, "I shall do such and such thing tomorrow."
[018:024] Except (with the saying), "If Allah will!" And remember your Lord when you forget and say: "It may be that my Lord guides me unto a nearer way of truth than this."[018:025] And they stayed in their Cave three hundred (solar) years, and add nine (for lunar years).
[018:026] Say: "Allah knows best how long they stayed. With Him is (the knowledge of) the unseen of the heavens and the earth. How clearly He sees, and hears (everything)! They have no Walee (Helper, Disposer of affairs, Protector, etc.) other than Him, and He makes none to share in His Decision and His Rule."[018:027] And recite what has been revealed to you (O Muhammad SAW) of the Book (the Quran) of your Lord (i.e. recite it, understand and follow its teachings and act on its orders and preach it to men). None can change His Words, and none will you find as a refuge other than Him.

2- Detailed Analysis on the Noble Verses:
There are few points to notice here:
1- Allah Almighty in all of the above Noble Verses made the sun and the moon for time and date reckonings/calculations.
2- Allah Almighty made special emphasis on the moon's positions (i.e., orbits) being used for knowing the number of years and reckoning in Noble Verse 10:5. So there is no question that the moon's stages and phases, in Noble Verses 36:39 and 10:5, are referring to the moon's positions in space (i.e., its cycles and its various orbits).
3- Allah Almighty also said that the moon moves in different orbits and positions that ultimately end up looking like an old and twisted date-tree branch in Noble Verse 36:39. See the next main section below, or visit this detail article on this site for the details.
4- The number of months for the year in Islam are 12 months (9:36).
5- For Noble Verse 32:5, above, the speed of light is calculated accurately to the third decimal using the lunar-year calculation and the measurement, using laser, the distance and speed of the moon's orbit, in the Noble Quran. This is one of the reckonings that the lunar calculations accurately give us according to both the Noble Quran and Science.
6- The Angels and the Holy Spirit, in Noble Verse 70:4, seem to travel in a speed that is at least 50 times faster than the speed of light!
7- In Noble Verse 18:25, above, Allah Almighty accurately calculated the difference between the Lunar and Gregorian calendars:
(More Scientific proofs are provided in the next section below)
CALCULATING THE LUNAR YEAR
In the first of the above verses, Allah has clearly revealed that the Moon will be a means of measurement for people to calculate the year. Furthermore, our attention is also drawn to the fact that these calculations will be performed according to the positions of the Moon as it revolves in its orbit. Since the angles between the Earth and Moon and the Moon and Sun constantly change, we see the Moon in different forms at different times. Furthermore, our ability to see the Moon is made possible by the fact that it is illuminated by the Sun. The amount of the lighted half of the Moon we see from Earth changes. Bearing in mind these changes, a number of calculations can be made, making it possible for human beings to measure the year.
In former times a month was calculated as the time between two full moons, or the time it took the Moon to travel around the Earth. According to this, one month was equal to 29 days, 12 hours and 44 minutes. This is known as the "lunar month." Twelve lunar months represent one year, according to the Hijri calendar. However, there is a difference of eleven days between the Hijri calendar and the Gregorian calendar, in which a year is the time it takes the Earth to orbit the Sun. Indeed, attention is drawn to this difference in another verse:
We can clarify the time referred to in the verse thus: 300 years x 11 days (the difference which forms every year) = 3,300 days. Bearing in mind that one solar year lasts 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 45.5 seconds, 3,300 days/365.24 days = 9 years. To put it another way, 300 years according to the Gregorian calendar is equal to 300+9 years according to the Hijri calendar. As we can see, the verse refers to this finely calculated difference of 9 years. (Allah knows best.) There is no doubt that the Qur'an, which contains such pieces of information, which transcended the everyday knowledge of the time, is a miraculous revelation.
(End of article)
8- The Noble Quran, undoubtedly, serves as a clear and irrefutable confirmation and evidence that the Lunar Calendar is indeed the most accurate calendar of all, and it is the calendar that Allah Almighty wants us to use according to the Noble Quran.
3- The Scientific Proofs:
The following articles confirm the data above:
Since the Moon goes around the Earth every 28 days, shouldn't we expect a solar eclipse about every 28 days (when the Moon is new), and a lunar one in the same period, (when the Moon is full) ?
Well, this would be so if the orbit of the Moon were in the same plane as the orbit of the Earth around the Sun. But we know eclipses are rarer than that; and the Moon's orbit is not in the same plane. Instead, it is tilted with respect to it, and the Moon does not in general pass directly on the Earth-Sun line. Moreover, the Moon's orbit tilt varies slowly. To have an eclipse, then, it is not enough that the three bodies be in the right order; the Moon's orbit should also be at the right tilt."
There are literally 10s (tens) of more pictures and quotes of the moon's orbits and the S-Shaped date-tree branches, in the above link, that all prove the Noble Quran's Divine Claims.
We already saw above the accurate calculation of differences between the Lunar and the Gregorian calendars in both the Noble Quran and Science:
"In former times a month was calculated as the time between two full moons, or the time it took the Moon to travel around the Earth. According to this, one month was equal to 29 days, 12 hours and 44 minutes. This is known as the "lunar month." Twelve lunar months represent one year, according to the Hijri calendar. However, there is a difference of eleven days between the Hijri calendar and the Gregorian calendar, in which a year is the time it takes the Earth to orbit the Sun. Indeed, attention is drawn to this difference in another verse:
They stayed in their Cave for three hundred years and added nine. (Qur'an, 18:25)
We can clarify the time referred to in the verse thus: 300 years x 11 days (the difference which forms every year) = 3,300 days. Bearing in mind that one solar year lasts 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 45.5 seconds, 3,300 days/365.24 days = 9 years. To put it another way, 300 years according to the Gregorian calendar is equal to 300+9 years according to the Hijri calendar. As we can see, the verse refers to this finely calculated difference of 9 years. (Allah knows best.) There is no doubt that the Qur'an, which contains such pieces of information, which transcended the everyday knowledge of the time, is a miraculous revelation." (Source)
The part in red confirms Dr. Harun Yahya's scientific claims about Noble Verse 18:25 above:
"A lunar calendar is a calendar that is based on cycles of the moon phase. The only widely used purely lunar calendar is the Islamic calendar, whose year always consists of 12 lunar months. A feature of a purely lunar year, on the Islamic calendar model, is that the calendar ceases to be linked to the seasons, and drifts each year by 11 or 12 days, and comes back to the position it had in relation to the solar year every 33 or 34 Islamic years. It is used predominantly for religious purposes. In Saudi Arabia it is also used for commercial purposes." (Source)
Again, the part in red confirms Dr. Harun Yahya's scientific claims about Noble Verse 18:25 above:
"The Islamic calendar or Muslim calendar (Arabic: التقويم الهجري; at-taqwīm al-hijrī; Persian: تقویم هجری قمری taqwīm-e hejri-ye qamari; Turkish: Hicri Takvim; also called the Hijri calendar) is a lunar calendar used to date events in many predominantly Muslim countries, and used by Muslims everywhere to determine the proper day on which to celebrate Islamic holy days. It is a lunar calendar having 12 lunar months in a year of about 354 days. Because this lunar year is about 11 days shorter than the solar year, Islamic holy days, although celebrated on fixed dates in their own calendar, usually shift 11 days earlier each successive solar year, such as a year of the Gregorian calendar. Islamic years are also called Hijra years because the first year was the year during which the Hijra occurred—Islamic prophet Muhammad's emigration from Mecca to Medina. Thus each numbered year is designated either H or AH, the latter being the initials of the Latin anno Hegirae (in the year of the Hijra)." (Source)

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.
In Noble Verses 10:5, 36:39, 6:96, 55:5, 9:36, 32:5, 70:4, 18:9-27 above, we've seen ample stunning Scientific Miracles that were not known to man 1,500 years ago. As I discussed in the 8 points that I mentioned above, the Lunar Calendar is undoubtedly the most accurate calendar of all, and it is the calendar that Allah Almighty wants us to use for accurate calculations of dates. Now knowing that science always refutes the man-made and man-altered false religions out there, starting from the pagans' Hinduism and ending with the polytheist trinitarian pagans' Christianity, it is indeed very comforting to see that the confirmed and proven science and the Divine Religion of Islam always be in perfect harmony and agreement! And why should this be a surprised? We can only expect this type of accuracy and Truth from our Creator and His Holy and Pure Words. So certainly this only serves to prove that Islam is indeed a Divine Truth and Religion from the Creator of the Universe, Allah Almighty, all Praise and Glory are due to Him Alone.
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.

The following Question-Answer exchanges are some of the very thorough and beneficial regarding the Scientific Miracles of the Sun and the Moon in the Glorious Quran.
Answer:As'salamu Alaikum dear brothers and sisters,
Brother Mclinkin94, great answer akhi. May Allah Almighty bless you. Ameen.
I would like to add that Allah Almighty created the creatures on earth to live by day and night. Some planets, and even parts on this earth, have very long days cycles and very long nights cycles. Normal life on earth was designed by an equal rotation of the day and night. So by Divine Design, Allah Almighty placed the moon to be our night light, and for the sun to be our glorious star.
Furthermore, Allah Almighty Said the following:
91:1 والشمس وضحاها
91:2 والقمر اذا تلاها
91:3 والنهار اذا جلاها
"By the sun and its radiant light, and the moon that trails (and reflects) its light. By the day that magnifies and glorifies (جلاها) its brightness. (The Noble Quran, 91:1-3)"
Did you know our shining and glorious days, on a clear day, are a magnification of the sun's rays by our atomosphere? Outside our atmosphere, the universe is pitch black! And Allah Almighty Said that it is our day that magnifies and glorifies the sun's brightness. Please visit:
we have, (from of old), adorned the lowest
heaven with Lamps, and We have made such (Lamps)
(as) missiles to drive away the Evil Ones, and

Wa Alaikum As'salam dear brother,
Dr. Zaghloul Al-Najjar has proven the speed of light in the Glorious Quran:
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.''(36:40)
As'salamu Alaikum dear brother,
People were asking the Prophet, peace be upon him, if the sun and the moon were ever going to collide. The people thought that the sun and the moon were both running on one lane or line or orbit or path, and that they're together, and that if one slows down, then the other would catch up to it and they'd ultimately collide. Allah Almighty responded to this nonsense by making it absolutely clear that the sun and the moon are traveling in entirely different orbits, and that they could not catch up to each others and collide. So what the empty anti-Islamics of today try to prove as a scientific blunder in the Holy Quran turns out to be an accurate Scientific Statement and a Scientific Miracle of its time.
Also, the Holy Quran Said that the moon's orbit is S-Shaped. Allah Almighty never said the same about the sun's orbit.
Same exact reponse as above. Yes, they're not on the same orbit. This is Scientifically estabilished. And again, the Holy Quran Said that the moon's orbit is S-Shaped. Allah Almighty never said the same about the sun's orbit.
Allah Almighty started the Noble Verse with speaking only about the sun and the moon, and the night and the day. But ended it by saying ALL swimming in their independent orbits. This is referring here to all celestial bodies in the Universe. This is further clearly proven in other Noble Verses where Allah Almighty talking about the orbits of the celestial bodies, and how once in space, traveling becomes in orbits. Please visit the following video of Dr. Zaghloul Al-Najjar. He thoroughly and beautifully explained this beautiful Miracle in the Holy Quran with ample examples and details:
Did you know that the Glorious Quran declares that the earth is:
the moon darkens.(75: 8 )
