Post Category : Miracles in Quran

8- Then made his offspring from the quintessence of the nature of a despised fluid. [Quran 32:8]In the 46th chapter, our attention was drawn to the fact that man was created from a quintessence of clay. The Arabic meaning of the word, “quintessence” is “sulala.” Just as man is created from a “quintessence” of the earth, he is also created from a “quintessence” of semen.

Man Created from Clay and Water

Post Category : Miracles in Quran

And certainly did We create man from an quintessence of clay.[Quran 23:12] As it is explained in the sura The Believers, Verse 12, man was created from a quintessence. God combined the elements contained in clay as a result of fine calculations. These elements are harmoniously and proportionately distributed in the body at birth; the body is programmed to make use of them in due proportion and to dispose of any surplus. The human body contains about 2kg calcium. If there is a decrease in this amount, the very act of…read more

Till when they came to the valley of ants, one of the ants said, “O Ants! Enter your dwellings, lest Solemon and his hosts crush you while they perceive not.”[Quran 27:18] Apart from the liquids of glands, the ants communicate also by sounds. For instance, ants whose colonies are nested in the bark of trees strike the ground with their bodies. Carpenter ants beat drums to this end.

Post Category : Miracles in Quran

68- And your Lord revealed the female honeybee; build homes in mountains, and trees, and in the hives people built for you. [Quran 16:68] In narrating the doings of the honeybee, the Quran uses the feminine gender. In Arabic, verbs are conjugated according to gender. The use in the Quran of the feminine gender in conjugation shows that the acts were performed by the female bee.

We know today that during ascension, atmospheric pressure gradually decreases, rising blood pressure causing strain on the functioning of heart and veins topped by lack of oxygen, which in turn influences the lungs, making one feel constricted. If one persists going even higher, there comes a…read more

Mountains as pegs

Post Category : Miracles in Quran

Have We not made the earth habitable? And the mountains as pegs? [Quran 78:6-7] Mountains are often mentioned in the Quran. The simile of pegs seems to be preternatural in the light of geological findings of the last century. The mountains we observe on the surface of the earth rest on immense strata that may be ten to fifteen times as deep as the portion remaining on the surface of the earth. For instance, the highest mountain on earth, whose peak attains an altitude of 9 km from the ground, possesses a…read more
