Quran scientific statement on iron as being sent to the earth is supporte…
• In this presentation you will read about:At the time of the prophet it was believed that iron wasformed in the earth since it was found mixed with the earthstones . This was a dominant belief until recently. However,Quran tells us that God sent iron from heaven and thisstatement is now supported by our modern science.
It is thought that the earth was once apart of the sun and then separated , soscientists thought that iron was formedin the sun but this supposition proved tobe wrong because the surface heattemperature of the sun is 6000 Celsiusdegrees while the temperature of the coreranges from 15 million to 16 millionsCelsius and this degree , though high , isnot enough to form an iron atom . Thewhole temperature of the solar system isnot sufficient to produce elemental iron . www.knowmuhammad.org
Where was iron createdIron needs very high temperature.This high temperature can not befound anywhere except in starswhich five times larger than thesun- scientifically known as massivestars.Life cycle of stars: In order tosustain its life a star needs to fusehydrogen into other elements.When stars like our sun ends up itsfuel it expands but in massive starsthe nuclear reaction goes on till iron www.knowmuhammad.org
core formed in the center of thestar.Iron can’t be fused, so the starcollapses forming a supernova. The outer shells of the stars whichcontain heavy elements bombardthe nearby planets.This is exactly what happened toour earth while it was still a heapof ashes. www.knowmuhammad.org
So according to modernastrophysics, iron wasnot formed in the earth.It was formed in oldmassive stars and thenwas caused to hit the earth. www.knowmuhammad.org
The Holy Quran tells us that Iron was not formed in the earth.• The Holy Quran presents many miracles that proves toevery person, be it learned or not, that it is a divine book.• Among these miracles is the scientific miracle; the HolyQuran contains scientific statements that are supported byscience.• Please note that Prophet Muhammad was an illiteratewho lived in an age in which such scientific facts were notknown.
God says in the Holy Quran what meansWe have already sent Our messengers with clearevidences and sent down with them the Scriptureand the balance that the people may maintain [theiraffairs] in justice. And We sent down iron, whereinis great military might and benefits for the people,and so that Allah may make evident those whosupport Him and His messengers unseen. Indeed,Allah is Powerful and Exalted in Might.(57:25) www.knowmuhammad.org
So According to this verse:God sent down the Holy Quran.God link between the Holy Quran as being sentdown and so was iron.Please note though other heavy metals were sentdown but Quran gives special mention to ironbecause it was the most common metal in the timeof revelation . www.knowmuhammad.org
The Holy Quran refers to many benefits of ironIn his book Nature’s Destiny, Michael Denton, a well-knownmicrobiologist, says:Of all the metals there is none more essential to life than iron. It isthe accumulation of iron in the centre of a star which triggers asupernova explosion and the subsequent scattering of the vitalatoms of life throughout the cosmos. It was the drawing by gravityof iron atoms to the centre of the primeval earth that generated theheat which caused the initial chemical differentiation of the earth,the outgassing of the early atmosphere, and ultimately theformation of the hydrosphere. It is molten iron in the center of theearth which, acting like a gigantic dynamo, generates the earth’smagnetic field, which in turn creates the Van Allen radiation beltsthat shield the earth’s surface from destructive high-energy-penetrating cosmic radiation and preserve the crucial ozone layerfrom cosmic ray destruction… www.knowmuhammad.org
Without the iron atom, therewould be no carbon-based life inthe cosmos; no supernovae, noheating of the primitive earth, noatmosphere or hydrosphere. Therewould be no protective magneticfield, no Van Allen radiation belts,no ozone layer, no metal to makehaemoglobin [in human blood],no metal to tame the reactivity ofoxygen, and no oxidativemetabolism. www.knowmuhammad.org
The intriguing and intimate relationship betweenlife and iron, between the red color of blood andthe dying of some distant star, not only indicatesthe relevance of metals to biology but also thebiocentricity of the cosmos www.knowmuhammad.org
The Holy Quran refers to the Atomic Number of IronSurat al-Hadid 25, which refersto iron, contains two ratherinteresting mathematical codes.“Al- Hadid” is the 57th surah inthe Qur’an. The abjad of theword “Al-Hadid” in Arabic,when the numerological valuesof its letters are added up, isalso 57.The numerological value of theword “hadid” alone is 26. And26 is the atomic number of iron. www.knowmuhammad.org
