  1. 1. THE HOLY QUR’AN AND THE SCIENTIFIC MIRACLE
  2. 2. • Define the concept of scientific miracle • Compare scientific miracle to scientific exegesis • Explain the benefits of scientific miracles • Cite examples of scientific miracles in the holy Qur’an
  3. 3. “ And the sun runs on unto a resting place for it. That is the measuring of the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.”(Ya-Sin 38) The holy Qur’an actually states the star of the system to which the earth belong ,i.e. the sun. this constellation exists in the milky way, which is one of a huge number of galaxies existing in this universe.
  4. 4. • The holy Qur’an is the miracle of prophet, peace be upon him, and the miracle is a supernatural thing coupled with a challenge made by the almighty Allah as evidence of the truthfulness of the messenger. • The holy Qur’an tells us about scientific facts that were proven by experimental science and it was impossible at time of the Messenger of Allah, to realise it; otherwise it would be a natural thing. Moreover, one aspect of the Qur’anic miracle is to tell about things that would happen in the future, including scientific discoveries
  5. 5. • “We shall show them Our portents on the horizons and within themselves until it will be manifest unto them that is the Truth.” • Regarding the Qur'anic verses pertaining to creed, ethics, acts o worship and dealings, they have concise structure that can be understood by all people of all ages in the same meaning.
  6. 6. The prophet, is the seal off the prophets and messengers, and his message is the last of all messages. Due to the evolution of people’s life along the course of time and the emergence of new developments in every age, there appears a need to make harmony and accord between what the human beings believe in and what he lives in reality. This reinforces his beliefs in Allah , increases his adherence to values and ethics and deepens his convictions. It also refutes the whispers of Satan and annuls the allegations of indolence and isolation.
  7. 7. • FIRST - to prove the authenticity of the holy Qur’an, and thus prove truthfulness of Muhammad’s prophet hood . The devil always stirs his whispers in some weal souls. However , the almighty Allah shows through scholars in every era a science that attests to the soundness of Islam and truthfulness of his Messenger.
  8. 8. • SECOND - increase of faith by what is revealed to the world through Allah’s signs in the universe, which makes Muslim’s belief stronger. • “they only are the (true) believers hose heart feel fear when Allah is mentioned, and when the revelations of Allah are recited unto them they increase their faith, and who trust in their lord,”
  9. 9. • THIRD - to encourage Muslim to research, investigation and seek more knowledge through meditation on universe, pondering on the scientific secrets in the holy Qur’an and in-depth understanding of juristic texts and rulings. This will reveal the brilliant face of Islam by scientific argument along with religious argument. This encompasses all aspects of inimitability. • FOURTH- to rectify the relation between science, religion and faith: The scientific miracle in the holy Qur’an erases any cause of conflict that might arise between experimental science and religion which prevailed in the past as a result of false practices.
  10. 10. Revelation cannot be explained according to the whims of anyone or according to a theory or something that scientists are not unanimously agreed on. An exegete must put before his eyes the following criteria • to confine the miracle to scientific facts that are decisively and unanimously agreed upon and drawn from their genuine source. • Allah’s knowledge is all comprehensive and infallible while human being’s lore is so limited and fallible. So, Allah’s sayings must have priority over any other sayings • Allah’s revelation is absolutely authentic and verified. In terms of meaning and denotation, some verses are definitely as regards their denotation, and others are speculative or ambiguous, so it is open to many interpretations. • The worshiping aspect becomes the crux, and must not turn into a maternal gain, such as when prayer- in view of its healthy benefits- becomes a sport or a habit to maintain fitness.
  11. 11. “We have built the heaven with might, and verily, we are steadily expanding it.”
