I'm not asking questions to get answers but to prove a point!

You don't have to answer or comment if you don't want to! I just want you to read the questions! I assume non Muslims don't accept The Quran as a divine revelation from God because if they accept The Quran, then they won't be non Muslims as the verse below says If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (submission to Allah), never will it be accepted of him; and in the Hereafter He will be in the ranks of those who have lost. Quran (3:85) Before the questions, I'll give a briefing!

What is Islam?
Islam is submitting your will to the one true God! Islam is monotheism, that is believing in One God and not associating anything or anyone with God (called in Arabic as Allah)! Islam is believing that There is no god but Allah and Prophet Muhammad is the messenger of Allah!

What is The Quran?
The Quran is the final revelation (book) by Allah revealed to His final messenger, Prophet Muhammad! Muslims believe it is the DIRECT and UNCHANGED Words of The Almighty God! The Quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammad in stages and it took 23 years for the whole Quran to be revealed! When, The Prophet was alive, The Quran was memorised by many others and it was written down! From the time of The Prophet till today, not even a letter of The Quran which was revealed in Arabic. 1400 years ago has been changed! The Quran was given to the Prophet Muhammad as a sign and guide from God! The Quran is meant for the whole of mankind and till eternity! I'LL GET TO THE POINT!

Some say Prophet Muhammad was not a messenger of God and that The Quran is not from God and that Prophet Muhammad wrote The Holy Quran himself!

IMPORTANT TO NOTE! Prophet Muhammad was an uneducated man, who lived in the 7th century AD in a desert in Arabia! IF THE QURAN IS NOT FROM GOD THEN

QUESTION 1
The Big Bang which we know through science now is clearly stated in The Quran, 1400 years ago! Do not the Unbelievers see That the heavens and the earth Were joined together (as one Unite of Creation), before We clove them asunder?.... Quran 21:30 How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 2
We know now that before the Galaxies were formed, the celestial matter was initially in the form of gaseous matter! But this is clearly mentioned in The

Quran! Moreover, He Comprehended in His design the sky, and it had been (as) smoke.... Quran (41:11) How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 3
Before, humans thought the world was flat! It was in 1597, when we found out the world is spherical! Now, we know that it is not just spherical but geo spherical! But The Holy Quran has said this 1400 years ago! The Holy Quran says the shape of the Earth is like the shape of an ostrich egg! Ostrich egg is geo spherical! “And the earth, moreover, hath He made egg shaped.” Quran (79:30) In some translations it says "And the earth, moreover, hath He extended"! But the word used is "dahaahaa" in arabic which means ostrich egg! How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 4
Recently, we came to know that the moon does not have its own light but it has reflected light! But the Holy Quran says that the light of the moon is reflected light! “Blessed is He Who made Constellations in the skies, and placed therein a Lamp and a Moon giving (reflected) light.” Quran (25:61)

Whenever the Quran talks about Sun it uses the arabic words "siraaj" which means torch "wahhaaj" which means a blazing lamp "diya" which means shining glory But whenever the Quran talks of the Moon it uses the words "muneer" and "noor" which mean reflected or borrowed light! How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 5
Only a two decades early, we came to know the sun rotates about its own axis! But The Quran says that the sun rotates about its own axis, 1400 years ago. “It is He Who created the Night and the Day, and the sun and the moon: All (the celestial bodies) swim along, each in its rounded course.” Quran (21:33) The Arabic word used in the above verse is yasbahoon . This word is derived from the word sabaha. It carries with it the idea of motion that comes from any moving body. If you use this word for a person on the ground, it would not mean that he is rolling but would imply that he is walking or running. If you use this word for a person in water, it would not mean that he is floating but would imply that he is swimming. Similarly, if you use the word yasbah for a celestial body such as the sun, it would not only mean that it is flying through space but would also mean that it is rotating as it goes through space. How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 6
Earlier it was thought the sun was stationary but now we know it moves in

an orbit! The Quran says that! “It is He Who created the Night and the Day, and the sun and the moon: All (the celestial bodies) swim along, each in its rounded course.” Quran (21:33) We also know now that the Sun will extinguish itself in the future! These are mentioned in The Quran! “And the Sun runs its course for a period determined for it; that is the decree of (Him) the exalted in Might, the All-Knowing.” Quran (36:38) How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 7
Now, we know through science that it is the sperm which is responsible for the gender of the child! But this is mentioned in The Quran that the sperm determines the sex of the child! How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 8
Recently, we know that all living thing are made of water! But this is mentioned in The Quran clearly! ....We made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe? Quran (21:30) How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 9
Space outside organized astronomical systems was earlier assumed to be a vacuum. Astrophysicists later discovered the presence of bridges of matter in this interstellar space. These bridges of matter are called plasma, and consist of completely ionized gas containing equal number of free electrons and positive ions. Plasma is sometimes called the fourth state of matter (besides the three known states viz. solid, liquid and gas). But The Quran talks about this, 1400 years ago! He Who has created the heavens and the earth and all that is between.... Quran (25:59) How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 10
In 1925, we came to know the fact that the Universe is expanding! But this is clearly mentioned in The Quran, 1400 years ago! “With power and skill did We construct the Firmament: it is We Who are steadily expanding it. (Qur'an, 51:47) In some translations it is "it is We Who create the vastness of Space.” Quran (51:47) But the arabic word "musioon" can be taken in both ways! How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 11
Before, everyone thought the atom was the smallest unit! But recently, we know the atom can be split further! This is clearly mentioned in The Holy

Quran that there are smaller things than the atom! “The Unbelievers say, ‘Never to us will come The Hour’: say, ‘Nay! but most surely, by my Lord, it will come upon you –by Him Who knows the unseen – from Whom is not hidden the least little atom in the Heavens or on earth: nor is there anything less than that, or greater, but is in the Record Perspicuous.’” Quran (34:3) How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 12
We know how the water cycle works now but The Holy Quran describes the water cycle clearly and in great detail in several places in The Quran! How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 13
Now, we know that the mountains bring stability to the Earth and that mountains have deep roots below the land! For example, the tip of the iceberg, the tip stands out of the water but the rest is under water! The mountains are like that! The Quran mentions this clearly and says mountains are like pegs! “Have We not made the earth as a wide expanse, and the mountains as pegs?” Quran (78:6-7) “And We have set on the earth mountains standing firm, lest it should shake with them.” Quran (21:31)

How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 14
Modern Science has discovered that in the places where two different seas meet, there is a barrier between them. This barrier divides the two seas so that each sea has its own temperature, salinity and density. Oceanologists are now in a better position to explain this verse. There is a slanted unseen water barrier between the two seas through which water from one sea passes to the other. But when the water from one sea enters the other sea, it loses its distinctive characteristic and becomes homogenized with the other water. In a way this barrier serves as a transitional homogenizing area for the two waters. There is an unseen barrier which we know recently but this is clearly mentioned in The Quran, 1400 years ago! “He has let free the two bodies of flowing water, meeting together: Between them is a Barrier which they do not transgress.” Quran (55:19-20) How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 15
We know now that below 200 meters under the see there is hardly any light and below 1000 metres there is complete darkness! We also know there are internal waves in the oceans! But this is clearly mentioned in The Holy Quran! The Quran even talks about internal waves and it says clearly there is no light in the depths of the oceans! “Or (the Unbelievers’ state) is like the depths of darkness in a vast deep ocean, overwhelmed with billow topped by billow, topped by (dark) clouds: depths of darkness, one above another: if a man stretches out his hand, he can hardly see it! For any to whom Allah giveth not light, there is no light!” Quran (24:40)

How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 16
“‘And has sent down water from the sky.’ With it have We produced diverse pairs of plants each separate from the others.” Quran (20:53) Previously, we did not know that plants too have male and female gender distinctions. Botany states that every plant has a male and female gender. Even the plants that are unisexual have distinct elements of both male and female! This is mentioned in The Quran! How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 17
“And fruit of every kind He made in pairs, two and two.” Quran (13:3) Fruit is the end product of reproduction of the superior plants. The stage preceding fruit is the flower, which has male and female organs (stamens and ovules). Once pollen has been carried to the flower, they bear fruit, which in turn matures and frees its seed. All fruit therefore imply the existence of male and female organs. A fact that is mentioned in The Quran. In certain species, fruit can come from non-fertilized flowers (parthenocarpic fruits) e.g. bananas, certain types of pineapple, fig, orange, wine, etc. They also have definite sexual characteristics. So even fruits have gender which is mentioned in The Quran! How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 18
“There is not an animal (that lives) on the earth, nor a being that flies on its wings, but (forms part of) communities like you.” Quran (6:38) Research has shown that animals and birds live in communities like us which The Quran mentions! How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 19
Now, we know that it’s the female bee which brings food and that the bee does a bee dance to tell the other bees the exact location of the source of food. But these facts are mentioned in The Quran, 1400 years ago! How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 20
Recently, we knew that honey comes from the belly of the bee and that honey is a very good medicine for various things! But The Quran mentions this 1400 years ago! How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 21
The Blood Circulation and milk production in cows which we know now is described in The Quran! How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 22
We know that the embryo look like a leech like clot and it clings! This is mentioned in The Quran! How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 23
“Now let man but think from what he is created! He is created from a drop emitted – Proceeding from between the back bone and the ribs.” Quran (86:5-70) In embryonic stages, the reproductive organs of the male and female, i.e. the testicles and the ovaries, begin their development near the kidney between the spinal column and the eleventh and twelfth ribs. Later they descend; the female gonads (ovaries) stop in the pelvis while the male gonads (testicles) continue their descent before birth to reach the scrotum through the inguinal canal. Even in adulthood after the descent of the reproductive organs, these organs receive their nerve supply and blood supply from the Abdominal Aorta, which is in the area between the backbone (spinal column) and the ribs. The lymphatic drainage and the venous return also go to the same area. The Quran mentions that man is created from a drop emitted from between the backbone and ribs! How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 24
The Holy Quran mentions no less than eleven times that the human being is created from “nutfah”, which means a minute quantity of liquid or a trickle of liquid that remains after emptying a cup. This is mentioned in several verses of the Qur’an including 22:5 and 23:13.1 Science has confirmed in recent times that only one out of an average of three million sperms is required for fertilising the ovum. This means that only 1/3 millionth part or 0.00003% of the quantity of sperms that are emitted is required for fertilization. How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 25
“And made his progeny from a quintessence of the nature of a fluid despised.” Quran (32:8) The Arabic word "sulaalah" means quintessence or the best part of a whole. We have come to know now that only one single spermatozoon that penetrates the ovum is required for fertilization, out of the several million produced by man. That one spermatozoon out of several million, is referred to in the Qur’an as sulaalah. We have also come to know now that only one ovum is fertilized out of the tens of thousand produced by the female. That one ovum out of tens of thousand is also refered to in the Qur'an as Sulaalah. This word also means gentle extraction from a fluid. The fluid refers to both male and female germinal fluids containing gametes. Both ovum and sperm are gently extracted from their environments in the process of fertilization. How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 26

“Verily We created man from a drop of mingled sperm.” (Al-Qur’an 76:2) The Arabic word "nutfatin amshaajin" means mingled liquids. According to some commentators of the Qur’an, mingled liquids refers to the male or female agents or liquids. After mixture of male and female gamete, the zygote still remains nutfah. Mingled liquids can also refer to spermatic fluid that is formed of various secretions that come from various glands. Therefore, nutfatin amshaaj, i.e. a minute quantity of mingled fluids refers to the male and female gametes (germinal fluids or cells) and part of the surrounding fluids! How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 27
“He makes you, in the wombs of your mothers, in stages, one after another, in three veils of darkness.” Quran (39:6) According to Prof. Keith Moore, these three veils of darkness in the Qur’an refer to: (i) anterior abdominal wall of the mother (ii) the uterine wall (iii) the amnio-chorionic membrane. How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 28
The Embryological stages are described stage by stage which have all been proved 100% correct by embryologists! Its too much to type here! How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 29

We know now that the human embryo in the womb gets the sense of hearing during 24th week and the sense of sight on the 28th week! The fact that hearing is developed before sight is developed is mentioned in The Quran! The Quran also mentions that the bones are formed before the muscles, which is scientifically proven now! How did Prophet Muhammad know this?

QUESTION 30
The Quran even says during which part of the embryological stages the embryo starts having human characteristics! How did Prophet Muhammad know this? How did The Quran have all this facts? We, Muslims says that it is because The Quran is from God! As it says in The Quran itself (This is) the revelation Of the Book in which There is no doubt,From the Lord of the Worlds. Quran (32:2) Furthermore I swear by the setting of the Stars,And that is indeed a mighty adjuration if ye but knew,That this is indeed a Qur'an Most Honourable, In a Book well-guarded, Which none shall touch but those who are clean: A Revelation from the Lord of the Worlds.

Is it such a Message that ye would hold in light esteem? Quran (56:75-81)

There are more scientific facts but I just put 30! The Quran has over 6000 verses of which around 1000 verses are about science and to this day not a single fact from The Quran has been proved wrong! How could a man know these 1400 years ago? Only a lunatic can say a man could know these facts 1400 years ago!
We believe it is from God! If Muhammad was not a messenger of God then he had no use in putting all these facts in The Quran cause people then did not know these anyway! Please think logically! Things which we know today through advanced technology are there 1400 years ago! Only a lunatic can say it was by chance! Not a single fact of The Quran has been proved wrong! If there are any mistakes, then it could only be because of the way I have presented the Questions! So I take full responsibility for any mistakes!
