Miracles of the Quran and Sunnah.

The miraculous aspect of the Quran

For every messenger there is a miracle or a proof to substantiate his prophet-hood and message. There was, for instance, the miracle brought by Prophet Moses (pbuh),which was his stick, and the miracle brought by Prophet Jesus (pbuh), which is that he was able to heal the blind and the leper and bring the dead back to life by the will of Allah. Moreover, the sign, proof and miracle brought by the seal of the prophets and messengers had to be suitable for any time or place, as long as humanity shall exist. It was for this reason that this miracle or proof, i.e. the holy Qur’an, was revealed. If the Qur’an is a book of guidance, it may also be considered as a book which is miraculous in everything. The miraculous nature of the Qur’an was and still is a proof of the truthfulness of the message and of the Prophet (pbuh), and that it is the book revealed by the Sustainer, the Ever-living, Ever-Existing Creator, and that it is the book revealed unto the seal of the prophets and messengers, one which is fit for every time and place. In addition to the miraculous aspect aforementioned, the Qur’an is miraculous as well in its scientific ayat. This is disclosed by the efforts made by contemporary researchers in relation to the Qur’an’s statements related to intricate scientific facts, which have only been discovered in the present era. This includes, for instance, phases of the creation of man and the fetus, which were described in the most accurate description centuries before humanity knew anything about these matters, Allah says: {12. And indeed We created man (Adam) out of an extract of clay (water and earth). 13. Thereafter We made him (the offspring of Adam) as a Nutfah (mixed drops of the male and female sexual discharge) (and lodged it) in a safe lodging (womb of the woman). 14. Then We made the Nutfah into a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood), then We made the clot into a little lump of flesh, then We made out of that little lump of flesh bones, then We clothed the bones with flesh, and then We brought it forth as another creation. So blessed be Allâh, the Best of creators.}(Al-Mu’minûn:12-14)

He also says: {He created you (all) from a single person (Adam); then made from him his wife [Hawwa’ (Eve)]. And He has sent down for you of cattle eight pairs (of the sheep, two, male and female; of the goats, two, male and female; of the oxen, two, male and female; and of the camels, two, male and female). He creates you in the wombs of your mothers, creation after creation in three veils of darkness, such is Allâh your Lord. His is the kingdom, Lâ ilâha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He). How then are you turned away?}(Az-Zumar:6)

When doctors checked their references and discoveries they found that they confirm what had already been mentioned by the All-Knowing, All-Aware Creator.

Descriptions of the embryo
“I did not find it difficult to accept that the Qur’an is the word of God, for the descriptions of the embryo in the Qur’an could not have been built on the scientific knowledge of the seventh century. The only reasonable conclusion is that these descriptions were revealed to Muhammad from God.”

In addition to this, Allah indicates the place of pain receptors in the body. Allah says: {Surely! Those who disbelieved in Our Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) We shall burn them in Fire. As often as their skins are roasted through, We shall change them for other skins that they may taste the punishment. Truly, Allâh is Ever Most Powerful, All-¬Wise.}(An-Nisâ’:56)

Allah also mentions the fact that space is widening. Allah says: }With power did We construct the heaven. Verily, We are Able to extend the vastness of space thereof.}(Az-Zâriyât:47)

He also states how the sun runs in its orbit. The Almighty says {37. And a sign for them is the night, We withdraw there from the day, and behold, they are in darkness. 38. And the sun runs on its fixed course for a term (appointed). That is the Decree of the All-Mighty, the All-Knowing.}(Yâ¬-Sîn:37-38) (28)

The miraculous aspect of the Sunnah

The Sunnah, as well, has its share of this miraculous nature. It is narrated by the mother of the believers ‘Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) that she said: “The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said: ‘Every one of the children of Adam has been created with three hundred and sixty joints; so he who declares the Glory of Allah, praises Allah, declares Allah to be One, Glorifies Allah, and seeks forgiveness from Allah, and removes a stone, or thorn, or bone from people’s path, and enjoins what is good and forbids from evil, to the number of those three hundred and sixty solama , will walk that day having saved himself from the Fire.”[ Muslim].

An unlettered man
“The mind is confused over the fact of how these verses were produced by an unlettered man, and it is well-recognized in the East that the human mind could not produce the like of these verses, in word or meaning. “

It has been scientifically confirmed today that without these joints in the human body it would not have been possible for him to enjoy his existence in this life, nor carry out his duties of populating, building and cultivating the earth. It is for this reason that man has the responsibility of praising and thanking Allah every day for this blessing that testifies to the existence of the Almighty Creator and His wonderful precise measure in all creation. The miraculous matter in this Hadeeth is that the chosen prophet (pbuh) defines the exact number of joints in a human body in an age in which there was not the slightest idea about such matters, and even the overwhelming majority of people today at the beginning of the twenty first century do not know this fact, and suprisingly some of those people who are even medical professors are unaware of it. It was only recently announced that the number of joints in the human body is three hundred and sixty, as was announce by the prophet of Islam (pbuh) some fourteen centuries ago; (147) joints in the spine, (24) joints in the chest, (86) joints in the upper part of the body, (88) in the bottom part, and (15) in the pelvis.

Who informed the unlettered prophet of this?

The question that imposes itself here: who other than Allah, the Creator; could have informed the Seal of the Prophets and Messengers (pbuh) of that specialized scientific fact which the knowledge of man was not able to reach except in the late twentieth century?! Moreover, who could have made the Prophet (pbuh) engage in such a metaphysical matter were it not for the fact that Allah Almighty knows with His Encompassing Knowledge that man would realize one day this anatomical fact of the human body, and then this ray of light in this Hadith would become a testimony that proofs the prophecy of this seal of Prophets and Messengers, and the truthfulness of the fact that he received revelation from the heavens?!


Deborah Potter

American Journalist
Miracles of the universe
“How could Muhammad, an unlettered man who grew up in an environment of ignorance, know the miracles of the universe described by the Qur’an which modern science is still to this day seeking to discover?! These words then must be the words of Almighty Allah.”

It should, nevertheless, be pointed out here that unless the path of knowledge and civilization is that of morality, such a civilization would be one of destruction, as such knowledge would lead to destruction, misery and ruin, and not to people’s happiness or to be in their service! It is for this reason that the path to knowledge and civilization is also the path of morals, and just as the path to happiness that is lacking in knowledge and civilization is a myth and heresy, the path to knowledge and civilization without morality is devastating for individuals, nations, societies and the entire human race...
