1-  The Noble Quran's Divine Claims:

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 look at Dr. Zaghlool Al-Najjar mentioned from the Noble Quran:

According to Dr. Zaghlool Al-Najjar, the moon had been directly mentioned and referenced 28 times in the Holy Quran.  Click on the video above to hear him in Arabic.  Also, click here to see the Noble Verses ( قمر  mentioned 27 times in 26 Noble Verses) and here (1 time in reference to the crescents).

The 27 Noble Verses are: 2:189, 6:77, 6:96, 7:54, 10:5, 12:4, 13:2, 14:33, 16:12, 21:33, 22:18, 25:61, 29:61, 31:29, 35:13, 36:39, 36:40, 39:5, 41:37, 54:1, 55:5, 71:16, 74:32, 75:8, 75:9, 84:18, 91:2Mentioned 28 times in 27 Noble Verses This is the exact number of times and phases the moon appears in.  The following Western Scientific sources further prove this:

 

 

2-  Proofs from Western Scientists:

The following articles clearly and indisputably confirm Allah Almighty's Divine Claims and Wisdom in the Noble Quran.

Question: “How long does it take the Moon to go around the Earth? (28 days)
Question: “How long does it take the Moon to rotate? (28 days.)2

(Footnote #2)

2 The Moon makes 1 rotation as it makes an orbit. This means that the same side of the Moon is always facing the Earth. The student modeling the Moon must always be facing the Earth, but the student facing the Earth does not need to be facing the Moon all the time."  (Source; PDF file is also on this site)

 

Article #2:

Another US-Government Sponsored article:

"Another factor in the variation of tides is based on the orbit of the moon around the earth and the earth around the sun. Both orbits are not circles but ellipses. The distance between the earth and moon can vary by up to 13,000 miles (31,000 km). Since the tidal force increase with decreasing distance then tides will be higher than normal when the moon is at its closest point (called perogee) to the earth, approximately every 28 days.

Likewise, the earth's elliptical orbit also causes variations in the sun's pull on the tides as we move from the closest point to the farthest point (called apogee) over the course of a year. And just to complicate things even more, the moon's orbit is inclined 5° to the earth's rotation. So the north/south orientations of the bulge also varies between the northern and southern hemisphere over this same 28-day orbital period.

As the moon completes one orbit around the earth (about every 28 days), there are two times in each orbit when the earth, moon and and sun are inline with each other and two times when the earth, moon and sun are at right angles."  (Source)

Article #4:

The following link and image were sent to me by Bassam Zawadi; may Allah Almighty always be pleased with him.

Bassam said: "....if you see the pic of the moon orbit here http://www.scienceu.com/observatory/articles/eclipses/ you would notice that it is moving in an S shape. analyze it carefully." 



(Click on any of the images to enlarge)


 
"Eclipses, be they solar or lunar, occur when the Earth, Sun and Moon are in a line. If the Moon is in-between the Earth and the Sun, it blocks the view of the Sun from some parts of the Earth, and this produces a solar eclipse. If, on the contrary, it is the Earth that is in-between the Sun and Moon, then the earth will block the light from the Sun before it can get to the Moon. Since moonlight is just the light the Moon reflects from the Sun, this will darken the Moon, and we get a lunar eclipse.

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."  (Source)

 

Article #5:

"Q: How long is a day on the Moon?

A: roughly 28 days, which corresponds to the length of time from one full moon to the next and is equal to the Moon's orbital period around the earth. Since the Moon rotates in such a way that the same hemisphere always faces the Earth, the Sun will rise over, say, Grimaldi (on the far western limb) when the Moon just reaches Full (when seen from Earth). The Sun will appear to set over Grimaldi as the Moon wanes to New, and then will rise again at the next Full Moon."  (Source)

 

Article #6:

"The reversal of the sequence is easily explained. The moon rotates around the Earth; you would expect a reversal every 14 days. If you extend your rock picture to the right, you would see that the full dominant-subordinate-dominant cycle is completed over the length of the lunar cycle, 28 days."  (Source)

 

Article #7:

"At present day, the Earth rotates once in 24 hours while the Moon orbits the Earth once in about 28 days. At stasis in the distant future, the Moon's orbital period won't be the present lunar 28 days, but something quite a bit longer. However, the angular momentum of the system must be conserved. So as the Moon's pull causes the Earth's rotation to slow, the Moon drifts farther outward into a longer period orbit. The system will stabilize where the two bodies are gravitationally locked. The total angular momentum of the pair will remain constant. (This is not quite accurate. The Sun also has a tidal effect on both Earth and Moon. This might be better said as, "The total angular momentum of all bodies involved will remain constant.")"  (Source)

 

Article #8:

From Wikipedia.org:

"The orbit of the Moon around the Earth is completed in approximately 27.3 days. The Earth and Moon orbit about their common center of mass, which lies about 4,700 kilometres from Earth's center (about three quarters of the Earth's radius). On average, the Moon is at a distance of about 385,000 km from the center of the Earth, which corresponds to about 60 Earth radii. With a mean orbital speed of 1.023 km/s, the Moon moves relative to the stars each hour by an amount roughly equal to its angular diameter, or by about 0.5°. The Moon differs from most satellites of other planets in that its orbit is close to the plane of the ecliptic, and not to the Earth's equatorial plane. The lunar orbit plane is inclined to the ecliptic by 5.1°, whereas the Moon's spin axis is inclined by only 1.5°."  (Source)

My Note:

As we've seen above, Allah Almighty directly mentioned the Arabic word قمر , "moon," 27 times in the Noble Quran.  The 28th time was in reference to the crescents.  Obviously, the number 27.35, which is almost always rounded to 28 as the articles above clearly show, is still in perfect harmony with the Noble Quran's number of mentions of the moon.  Also, the Arabic word قمر , "moon," is mentioned directly and indirectly 28 times in 27 Noble Verses.  The 27 Noble Verses are listed above.  So no matter how one looks at it, I personally see the 28 and 27 in the Noble Quran to be in perfect harmony with science's 28 and 27.3.  This all looks more impressive when we learn that Allah Almighty Said that the moon's orbit around earth is shaped like the English-letter "S" (an old and twisted date-tree branch), which science has also just recently and perfectly confirmed.

So there is definitely a Divine Message and Wisdom behind the number of references to the moon in the Noble Quran.

 

 

3-  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.

The number of direct and indirect occurrences of the Arabic word قمر , "moon," is in perfect agreement with what Scientists have just recently discovered and confirmed about the moon's orbit around the earth: 27 and 28 (see note on Article #8 above).  It is also worth mentioning that Allah Almighty Said that the moon's orbit around earth is shaped like the English-letter "S" (an old and twisted date-tree branch), which science has also just recently and perfectly confirmed.

Allah Almighty's comparison of the moon's orbit around the earth with the shape of an old and dried-out branch of a date tree is truly amazing!  No man could've possibly thought about this 1,500 years ago, because the S-shaped orbit of the moon around our planet was not known to man back then.  On the contrary, man thought that the earth was flat and that the sun and the moon were rotating around it in perfectly circular motion.  Not only that, but in some of the far eastern pagan scriptures such as in Hinduism, they are even taught that the earth has two holes at its "ends" that the sun goes through during its rising and setting!  Allah Almighty in the Noble Quran, on the other hand, described the earth as egg-shaped [2] [3], and talked about its motion in space and around its own axle in numerous Noble Verses [1] [2] [3] [4] [5].  And now, the Almighty GOD perfectly described for us how the moon orbits our planet earth!

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.

    Question-Answer Exchanges:

    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.

    From http://www.answering-christianity.com/blog/index.php/topic,1311.msg4866.html#msg4866:

      

    Question:

    Assalamualykum.

    '' Blessed is He who has placed in the sky great stars and placed therein a [burning] lamp and luminous moon.'' (25:61)

     In the above Ayah Allah says He has placed great stars in the Heaven and also place therein a lamp (Sun) and a luminous moon. Okay I don't understand why Allah differentiated the stars and the Sun. Why does Allah only address the sun as a lamp while we know that there are much more bigger luminous stars than the sun in the universe? And does this verse mean there is only one Sun and one moon in the Heavens? But it's not possible as I have told you earlier that our Universe consists of many Sun like stars and also Moons.

     Please clarify this.

    Answer:

    Hello brother Farhan!

    I wanted to let you know that this verse (25:61) uses the word that is more accurately translated as constellations. So right away, you know that this verse is referring to the human perception of the sky! We see constellations and patterns in the sky, so it is our perception. So this verse is adhering to human perception to explain a beautiful phenomena of creation. Next you notice that the Quran says that Allah placed a burning lamp in the sky and a moon. In no way does this mean there is only one burning lamp or one moon, it is just stating that there is a burning lamp and a moon in the sky.

    There are a few things that you need to notice about this verse. In no way does this verse say that the sun isn't a star, or that there is only one moon.

    Next there is another verse in the Quran that addresses the STARS as being LAMPS, just as the sun is.

    Quran 24:35 Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The similitude of His light is as a niche wherein is a lamp. The lamp is in a glass. The glass is as it were a shining star. (This lamp is) kindled from [the oil of] a blessed tree, an olive neither of the East nor of the West, whose oil would almost glow forth (of itself) though no fire touched it. Light upon light. Allah guideth unto His light whom He will. And Allah speaketh to mankind in allegories, for Allah is Knower of all things.

      

    Question:

    thanks brother.

     But can I have some more proof that Quran doesn't say that there is only one moon and one sun? Can you show anymore verse where Allah refers to the stars as lamps? And can you make it more clearer why do you think the verse is talking about human perception? It will Inshallah convince me.

    PLEASE HELP

    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:

    PLEASE HELP

    Question:

    '' 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)

     Enbiya/33
    It is He Who created the Night and the Day, and the sun and the moon: all (of them) swim in an orbit.


     Okay in some articles it is said that the above verses are talking about the motion of everything including sun,moon,earth,planets and stars. But how? Because the verses only mention sun, moon and earth? If I say Ibrahim and Ali, Sami and Abdel, Ahmad and Uthman everyone is a good player or all are good players will it imply also the people whose names are unmentioned?  Can anyone explain this in detail?

     And does Quran say anything about earth's motion around the Sun? And Moon's motion around the earth?

    Answer:

    '' 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.
      
    Enbiya/33
    It is He Who created the Night and the Day, and the sun and the moon: all (of them) swim in an 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.
      
    Okay in some articles it is said that the above verses are talking about the motion of everything including sun,moon,earth,planets and stars. But how? Because the verses only mention sun, moon and earth? If I say Ibrahim and Ali, Sami and Abdel, Ahmad and Uthman everyone is a good player or all are good players will it imply also the people whose names are unmentioned?  Can anyone explain this in detail?

    And does Quran say anything about earth's motion around the Sun? And Moon's motion around the earth?
      
    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:

    http://www.answering-christianity.com/day_layer_reveals_the_sun_brightness.wmv

    All celestial bodies are يعرجون Yaa'rujoon (traveling in orbits) in space.  The video in the link speaks about the countless orbits in the Universe, and the day-layer reveals the sun's brightness.  This video is about Noble Verses 32:5, 34:2, 57:4, 70:3-4 and others, and the Arabic words عرج , عروج , معارج  and  معراج  that all refer to "going in an orbital and curvy path" in the Glorious Quran and our Islamic Texts.

    Question:

    And the moon darkens.(75: 8 )

    And the sun and the moon are joined,(75:9)

    Can anyone explain the above verses? Why Allah says that the moon and the sun will be joined? As sun is much bigger than the moon , it should swallow it not get joined with it. I'm confused. I have read some articles where they say that through these verses Allah says that Sun will swallow the Moon before the Final Hour. But the verse uses ''JOINED'' not ''SWALLOWED''. Or is it talking about Solar eclipse? If so then the translation might me wrong.

    Answer:

    As'salamu Alaikum dear brother,

    Here are the Noble Verses:

    ‏75:7 فاذا برق البصر
    ‏75:8 وخسف القمر
    ‏75:9 وجمع الشمس والقمر
    ‏75:10 يقول الانسان يومئذ اين المفر

    [075:007]  At length, when the sight is dazed,
    [075:008]  And the moon is buried in darkness.
    [075:009]  And the sun and moon are joined together,-
    [075:010]  That Day will Man say: "Where is the refuge?"


    I believe this is a Prophecy about a Great Eclipse that will take place.  This actually makes sense, since when the Hour Comes, the Universe's orbits' path will turn into a spegetti mess on a massive scale, and all celestial bodies will be colliding violently with each others.  So it makes sense that:

    1-  Our atmosphere will change, and hence it will greatly effect our visions, since the sun rays are all magnified and become glorious, as we know them, through our atmosphere as Allah Almighty mentioned clearly in the Glorious Quran:

    ‏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)"
     
    Please visit: http://www.quransearch.com/sun_rays_miracle.htm


    Lunar Eclipses do blur and permanently damage the eye's cornea:

    The following pictures certainly prove the points above.  Another point worth mentioning is that when the Hour Comes, the sun's rays might be much much more than what they already are today.  There are several Noble Verses in the Glorious Quran that indicate that this will actually happen:

    http://www.quransearch.com/water_shall_vanish.htm
    http://www.quransearch.com/galaxy_explosion.htm
    http://www.quransearch.com/end_of_times_volcanoes_caused_by_stretching_of_earth.htm
    http://www.quransearch.com/ac20.htm#links



    In the case, the lunar eclipse would be far greater than what it appears to be in the following pictures:







    When watching the lunar eclipse outside, special Eye Shields are required to prevent blindness and/or permanent eye damages, especially to the cornea:






    2-  Because of the chaos in the orbits, our solar system's orbits will also go in chaos, and hence the sun's and the moon's orbits will cross each others, and an eclipse will occur as a result.

    3-  When the events in point #2 happen, then the sky will darken and the moon will be buried in darkness.

    Great question dear brother, Farhan!  I will add this on the website with more elaborations, Insha'Allah.

    Take care,
    Osama Abdallah

      

    Question:

    Assalamualykum.

     I'm still confused about these verse:

      And the sun and the moon are joined,(75:9)

     Even if it is talking about solar eclipse, why it says that sun and moon will be joined? We know during Solar Eclipse, the moon comes in between the Sun and the Earth. Moon is not joined. Please, can you explain this in detail?

    Answer:

    Wa Alaikum As'salam dear brother,

    It is possible that the moon will eventually be swallowed by the sun, along with all of our solar system's celestial bodies.  We've seen above already how this Noble Verse is talking about the Great Lunar Eclipse when the Hour Comes.  As to the language of the sun and the moon will be joined together, while it is about a lunar eclipse, but it could also be referring to the moon eventually leaving its orbit here around earth and be devoured by the sun.  You see, the two immediate celestial bodies to us humans that our naked eyes could see up close and personal, from our view here on earth, are:

    1-  The moon.
    2-  The sun.

    And they are the most relevant and vital celestial bodies for our life here on earth.  So if Allah Almighty spoke in limited language about the sun and the moon, it doesn't limit the event to just them.  But to us humans, since these two celestial bodies are what we see in considerable size and clarity from earth here, then they are the most relevant to us.  Plus as I said, they are the most relevant and vital to our life here on earth as well.  So Allah Almighty putting emphasis on the sun and the moon wouldn't mean that the Noble Verse is limited to just them.

    As to the Arabic جمع (joined) in Noble Verse 75:9 above, it could very well be referring to being aligned together according to our view and perspective here on earth.  جمع is both a noun and a simple past in Arabic:

    1-  جمع means a group for a noun.
    2-  جمع means joined together, came together, summoned together, brought together, put together for a simple past.

    The Noble Word would be very appropriate and suitable if Allah Almighty spoke about the Great Lunar Eclipse will happen when the Hour Comes.  And we see very clearly from the full context in Noble Verses 75:7-10, in the previous posts above, that Allah Almighty did indeed speak about a Lunar Eclipse will happen when the Hour comes.

    I know I've written an article years ago about these Noble Verses.  I will update it with these new posts today, Insha'Allah (if Allah Almighty is Willing).

    I hope this helps, Insha'Allah.

    Take care,
    Osama Abdallah
