Divine Revelations in Qur'an validated by Scientific Discoveries (Reference Page)

Qur'an is the last of the four Divine Scriptures that were revealed unto selected and revered prophets of God. However, it is the most criticized "Book" by the followers of the previous Book holders. It is generally claimed that Prophet Muhammad ﷺ "wrote" the Qur'an by taking excerpts from other Divine Scriptures when he used to go out with his trade caravans and getting to extract Divine knowledge from people of other religions. Further, the Qur'an is often ditched against science and questioned as to why it lacks scientific orientation, as if all three earlier scriptures are based on science.

Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was an unlettered man upon whom Qur'an was revealed with Divine Wisdom that did not have answers by the most learned religious and other scholars of the time. Can you imagine an unlettered man predicting continuous expansion of the universe fifteen centuries ago or telling the balanced celestial movement of sun and moon and other stars? Or how could he know that there is something about the finger tips or the theory of Big Bang? In fact, most of the people look for "miracles" in Qur'an rather than interpreting the wisdom hidden in the revelations, which in itself are more than miracles.

There are umpteen number of debates that abound the social media on pitching Qur'an against science. But no one tries to clarify that like all Divine Scriptures, Qur'an too is a Book of Divine Wisdom, and not a book of science or fiction. One has to have a grasp of Qur'anic Arabic language to really understand Qur'an and get to know the wisdom hidden in each word of Qur'an. Why Qur'anic Arabic language? Because the commonly spoken Arabic language greatly differs from the Qur'anic language and one may go astray or misunderstood the Divine Wisdom. More often than not, critics of Islam and Qur'an read a translation and subject "their findings" to criticism. The difference between spoken and literary Arabic as the same as spoken and Shakespearean English.

In fact, all debates center on prophets and their lives but not on the Divine Wisdom contained in the Holy Scriptures. Prophet Muhammad ﷺ could listen to anecdotes of earlier prophets from others and insert in Qur'an, but how could he add things the knowledge of which was nonexistent during his times? The unanswered questions which are being answered now make Qur'an unique and full of Divine Wisdom.

We have made an endeavour to dig out knowledge and explanation of Divine Wisdom in number of our earlier posts. To add interest to those who need scientific explanation of Qur'an or to find scientific miracles in Qur'an, we have already published a few posts on the correlation between the Divine Revelations and Scientific Discoveries, so that those who want scientific answers could come to an ease and see how Divine Wisdom. And they would then understand that the Divine Wisdom that remained hidden and unanswered for more than last fourteen hundred years, when Qur'an was revelaed unto Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, has started to be validated as more and more research is carried out and more scintific discoveries unearthed. 

Please read our posts for details of Divine Revelations in the Qur'an, validated by Scientific Discoveries:
Let us start calling a spade a spade and do not contest Qur'an and start to read it objectively, correlating with latest scientific developments. And start to agree that Qur'an is a word of God as no human being could ever write a single line worth that in the Qur'an.
May Allāh (سبحانه و تعالى‎) help us understand Qur'ān and follow the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, which is embodiment of commandments of Allah contained in the Qur'ān. May Allah help us to be like the ones He loves and let our lives be lived helping others and not making others' lives miserable or unlivable. May all our wrong doings, whether intentional or unintentional, be forgiven before the angel of death knocks on our door. 
وَمَا عَلَيۡنَاۤ اِلَّا الۡبَلٰغُ الۡمُبِيۡنُ‏ 
(36:17) and our duty is no more than to clearly convey the Message.”
That is Our duty is only to convey to you the message that Allah has entrusted us with. Then it is for you to accept it or reject it. We have not been made responsible for making you accept it forcibly, and if you do not accept it, we shall not be seized in consequence of your disbelief, you will yourselves be answerable for your actions on Day of Resurrection.

Reading the Qur'ān should be a daily obligation of a Muslim - Reading it with translation will make it meaningful. But reading its Exegesis / Tafsir will make you understand it fully. It will also help the Muslims to have grasp over social issues and their answers discussed in the Qur'an and other matter related to inter faith so that they are able to discuss issues with non-Muslims with authority based on refences from Qur'an.

May Allah forgive me if my posts ever imply a piety far greater than I possess. I am most in need of guidance.

Note: When we mention God in our posts, we mean One True God, we call Allah in Islam, with no associates. Allah is the Sole Creator of all things, and that Allah is all-powerful and all-knowing. Allah has no offspring, no race, no gender, no body, and is unaffected by the characteristics of human life.
