The Holy Quran claims to be the acme of religious laws. It was revealed to a person who was an illiterate person and was living with the illiterate people of the desert of Arabia 1400 years ago. But this book has not only given such a wonderful teachings to the human beings which meet all their requirements but also has many miraculous verses that the rapid progress of today’ science is proving his truth.
Quran claims to be the true and actual words of God and this cosmos is His act so there should be no contradiction between the words of God and his acts and that’s exactly what we experience when we ponder on the Holy Quran.
Like, now the Big Bang theory is very well know to the people around the globe but you would be surprised that this theory was told 1400 years ago by that illiterate person of the desert of Arabia to whom world knows as Muhammad (pbuh) the prophet of Islam.
The Holy Quran says,
” Do not the disbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were a closed-up mass, then We opened them out? ” 21:30
The word Quran has used is ” ratqan” (closed up mass) and the Arabic dictionaries give two meanings of this word , one ” the coming together of something and the consequent infusion into a single entity ” and the second meaning is “total darkness ” and these two meanings of the word “ratqan” clearly define the black hole and then the Quran says ” fataqna” then we clove them asunder , we opened them out, and that’s exactly what Big Bang is.
Then the Holy Quran tells us that all the heavenly bodies are in a constant state of motion none of them is stationary. It says,
” And He it is Who created the night and the day, and the sun and the moon, each gliding along in its orbit.” 21:33
Now every sane man would wonder how an illiterate person of the desert of Arabia can tell such things 1400 years ago when human knowledge was nothing more than the Greek astronomy of that era.
And wonder upon wonder is that Quran goes further ahead and pronounces that there is an extraterrestrial life exists, that is there is a life on the other planets and there would be some kind of contact with them in future.
“And among His Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and of whatever living creatures He has spread forth in both. And He has the power to gather them together when He pleases.” 40:29
How someone can believe that the above mentioned person can even think of such things at that time if he was just fabricating all these verses ?
This is a little glimpse of the beauty and the truth of the Holy Quran but actually every verse of it speaks for it.
