5 Indisputable Miracles Of The Quran

Why Talk About Miracles Of The Quran?

There’s a good reason I decided to write this post talking about miracles of the Quran. There’s a war going on and the minds of Muslims is the battlefield and our hearts are the spoils.

If you’ve been following this website, you would have read the article I wrote in response to A. Syam, an atheist who left some comments last week.

In his response to my article (which was a response to his comments) he said he just wanted Muslims to think differently.

What?

Why do people do these things? How does he benefit by trying to fool Muslims into atheism?

As a Muslim, we try to convince people of Islam because we know it’s the truth.

Christians try to convince to become Muslim for the same reason (they think it’s the truth).

But why would someone, who claims not to have any religion, want someone who has found satisfaction in their faith to leave their faith?

It’s like Allah says in His book:

The ones who prefer the worldly life over the Hereafter and avert [people] from the way of Allah , seeking to make it (seem) deviant. Those are in extreme error.

Chapter 14 Verse 3

He is not trying to increase his understanding, or learn more. He simply wants to lead others astray like him.

And my concern is that there may be some weak-minded Muslims who will fall for his ruse. Or his words may open a door in their hearts that Shaytan will exploit.

I’ve seen it happen folks. The devil is an expert at what he does.

Therefore, in order to strengthen the faith of any Muslim who wanders on to this website, I’ve compiled a short but very powerful list of Quranic miracles.  These are facts and proofs from science and history that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) brought us the truth.

Are There Really Miracles In The Quran?

No one can deny these miracles in the Quran. Perhaps they may choose to ignore the significance (Prophet Moses made his staff turn into a snake by Allah’s leave and Pharaoh still did not believe; so I’m under no illusion this will turn the hardcore atheist into a believer). But no one can state that these facts are not true or were just made up.

Quran Miracle #1: Dhul Qarnain Using Copper To Construct His Wall

In Chapter 18 (Surah Al-Kahf) Allah tells us the story of Dhul Qarnain. He was an ancient ruler that some have hypothesized to be either Alexander the Great or Cyros the Great. I won’t go into too much detail right now because I’ve already made a detailed video about his exploits.

Allah tells us that Dhul Qarnain was hired by a group of people to help them against a couple of warmongering tribes called Gog and Magog (Yajuj wa Majuj). The Quran even gives us some very specific details about the construction of this wall:

Bring me sheets of iron” – until, when he had leveled (them) between the two mountain walls, he said, “Blow,” until when he had made it (like) fire, he said, “Bring me, that I may pour over it molten copper.”

Chapter 18 Verse 96

Just stop a minute and think. Have you ever wondered why this much detail was given to us in the Quran? Allah could have just said “Dhul Qarnain built a wall and it kept Gog and Magog out” and that would have been enough for most of us.

Well, when I decided to look further into the properties of iron and copper, I learned some interesting things.

We all know that iron is one of the strongest metals on the planet. But despite its strength, iron rusts when exposed to water.

Copper on the other hand, is a relatively soft metal, and an excellent conductor of electricity. But the most amazing thing about copper is that it does not rust when exposed to water! In fact, the British Navy used to coat the bottom of their ships with copper.

Another thing about copper is that it produces a green, protective layer after long exposure to oxygen (oxidization). The famous Statue of Liberty in New York City is made of copper. It used to be the reddish color we all associate with copper. But it turned green after a few years of being out in the open.

So Dhul Qarnain built his wall using iron blocks, heated them up until they became one solid wall, and then poured molten copper over it to keep it from rusting. After a few years, the copper exterior turned green and blended in with the natural color of the earth, making it nearly impossible to find nowadays.

I don’t know about you, but I find it amazing that the building of such a perfectly powerful structure was described in the Quran.

Quran Miracle #2: Pharaoh Was Worshiped As A Deity

There are several verses in the Quran that show the King of Egypt (Pharaoh) during the time of Moses, actually thought he was a god. He and his people literally believed he was divine and should be worshiped.

He (Pharaoh) said, “If you take a god other than me, I will surely place you among those imprisoned.”

Chapter 26 Verse 29

And Pharaoh said, “O eminent ones, I have not known you to have a god other than me.

Chapter 28 Verse 38

And he (Pharaoh) said: “I am your Lord the Highest.”

Chapter 79 Verse 24

This may not seem like a big deal to us these day because it’s common knowledge that the ancient Egyptians worshiped their Pharaohs. Modern archaeologists have explored the pyramids and other Egyptian ruins, translated the hieroglyphics, and have a very good understanding of their religion.

But how did Prophet Muhammad know this? How did he (pbuh) know this specific information?

And he did not get it from the Bible because it’s not in the Bible. Nowhere in Exodus does it state the Pharaoh was worshiped as a deity by the ancient Egyptians. In fact, the biblical story of Moses does not emphasize any attempt by Moses to teach Pharaoh to worship Allah.

In the Bible, it’s all about letting the the Children of Israel out of slavery.

It is miraculous that the Quran tells us this specific bit of information about the Egyptian faith that could not have been known at that time. After all, the events of Moses’ (AS) time happened almost 3000 years before Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was born. The language and culture of ancient Egypt were lost and unknown by the time Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) came on the scene.

We only have this information because of extensive exploration of Egyptian ruins and the discovery of the Rosetta Stone (1799 CE).

Quran Miracle #3: Referring To The Hyksos King As “Azeez” And Not Pharoah

One of the most idiotic lies made against Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is that he fabricated the Quran from his knowledge of the Bible. Those who make this claim always ignore the fact that the Quran does not copy any of the historical errors of the Bible.

One such error is the title given to the King of Egypt when Prophet Yusuf (AS) arrived there as a slave. Here’s what the Bible says:

When two full years had passed, Pharaoh had a dream: He was standing by the Nile, when out of the river there came up seven cows, sleek and fat, and they grazed among the reeds. After them, seven other cows, ugly and gaunt, came up out of the Nile and stood beside those on the riverbank. And the cows that were ugly and gaunt ate up the seven sleek, fat cows. Then Pharaoh woke up.

Genesis 41 New International Version

However, it is well known now that during this time, Egypt had been conquered by a group of people called the Hyksos. The Hyksos ruled Egypt for about 200 years before being expelled by the Egyptians.

Even though the Hyksos ruled Egypt, their rulers did not take the title “Pharaoh.” This was a title reserved only for Egyptian kings of Egyptian descent. The Egyptian priests (crucial to anyone wanting to rule Egypt) would have never given this title to foreign rulers.

When Prophet Yusuf/Joseph (AS) and his family entered Egypt, the Hyksos were in charge. As we know from the Quran, Yusuf (AS) gained favor with the King of Egypt by correctly interpreting his dream and saving the land from famine.

And the king said, “Bring him to me; I will appoint him exclusively for myself.” And when he spoke to him, he said, “Indeed, you are today established [in position] and trusted.”

[Joseph] said, “Appoint me over the storehouses of the land. Indeed, I will be a knowing guardian.”

And thus We established Joseph in the land to settle therein wherever he willed. We touch with Our mercy whom We will, and We do not allow to be lost the reward of those who do good.

Chapter 12 Verses 54-56

Prophet Yusuf’s (AS) family joined him soon afterwards and the Children of Israel prospered and benefited from their close relationship with the Hyksos.

Many years later, the Egyptians overthrew the Hyksos and regained control over Egypt. The Israelites were seen as co-conspirators and were enslaved by the Egyptians. And hence, by the time Prophet Musa (AS) is born, they were under severe persecution from the true, Egyptian Pharaoh.

The point is, that if Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was copying from the Bible, he would have made the same mistakes the Bible made i.e. calling the Hyksos king “Pharaoh.”

But he did not. Allah revealed the truth and referred to the King of that time as “Al-Azeez” (The Master) or The King.

Quran Miracle #4: Sending Down Of Iron

I have to admit, I did not discover this miracle from the Quran on my own. I actually first heard of it from a lecture by Bilal Philips.

Allah tells us in the Quran:

And We sent down iron, wherein is great military might and benefits for the people, and so that Allah may make evident those who support Him and His messengers unseen. Indeed, Allah is Powerful and Exalted in Might.

Chapter 57 Verse 25

Pay particular attention to the opening phrase “We sent down iron…”

You’ve probably read this verse a hundred times and never thought about it. Allah really did “send down” iron to us. He uses this same phrase when speaking about rain:

Do you not see that Allah has sent down rain from the sky and the earth becomes green? Indeed, Allah is Subtle and Acquainted.

Chapter 23 Verse 18

Just like Allah has sent us rain from above, He has also sent us iron from above. I mean literally, from above.

Most of the iron found on earth’s surface, came from meteoritess crashing into the earth.

And there is no way Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) could have known this during his time.

And speaking of meteorites…

Quran Miracle #5: Shooting Stars Not Called Stars

Most Muslims know the Islamic purpose behind so-called shooting stars. These are used by the Angels to chase the Jinn who are trying to steal secrets from the heavens.

Read “The Jinn” A Suspense Novel By A Muslim Author

Now, there’s no way I can prove this scientifically, and that’s not my purpose. But I do want you to consider a few facts.

  1. We all know that shooting stars are not really stars at all. They are really meteorites.
  2. The ancient Arabs, like just about everyone else in the world at that time, really did think they were stars.
  3. However, nowhere in the Quran does Allah refer to these “shooting stars” as stars!

If Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) had made up the Quran from his head, he would have called shooting stars “stars” like everyone else did.

After all, they certainly do look like stars. And everyone else around him were calling them stars.

But the Quran never refers to them as stars. Instead, Allah uses the phrase “lamps” or “flame.”

And we used to sit therein in positions for hearing, but whoever listens now will find a burning flame lying in wait for him.

Chapter 72 Verse 9

And We have certainly beautified the nearest heaven with lamps and have made (from) them what is thrown at the devils and have prepared for them the punishment of the Blaze.

Chapter 67 Verse 5

I believe this is another amazing fact that the Quran has right when the average human of the time would have made a mistake.

These miracles from the Quran should bolster your faith and strengthen your desire to please Allah. His Messenger (pbuh) has brought us the truth and we would be foolish to ignore these obvious facts.

Please share this article with as many people as you can, Muslim and non-Muslim. You never know who may read this and be guided to righteousness because of it. Sometimes small actions yield big results.

And Allah knows best.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this with us, I was amazed with your conclusion about yajuj and majujs’ story. Jazak allah khair.

  2. May allah the almighty bless u for giving such a witty conclusion specially about the iron wall and the shooting stars jazak allah thank u very much

  3. I have read your post and understand your point that you would like to share between the people that are interested to learn about quran and rules of life.
    I am interested to learn about Islam like quran and Hadih can you tme best website. I find many pages but all of them use less.

    • There are many things to learn about the Quran and different people need different things.

      For memorization, most people prefer a one on one teacher, either at home, or online (through Skype or Google Hangouts) or at a local Masjid.

      For learning how to read Arabic, there are lots of free YouTube videos. But I think the best option is my online Arabic reading program.

      For those who want to learn tafsir, there are many places on this website that teach that also. But many people really enjoy Nouman Ali Khan’s method of teaching.

  4. 10) It is not a miracle revelation in Quran verses 26:29 28:38 and 79:24 to claim the ancient Egyptians worshiped the pharaoh as a god.
    The Greek historian Herodotus (484 BC – 425 BC) wrote about the pharaoh being worshiped as a god http://www.coopertoons.com/merryhistory/dailylifeinancientegypt/ancientegypt.html

    ***Muttaqi’s edit: So Prophet Muhammad somehow got his hands on the work of Herodotus, who according to the website you referenced probably made up most of what he wrote and did not speak the language? And when Muhammad (pbuh) got these works he got someone to translate them for him or did he already speak Greek?***
     
    I decided to delete the rest of his comment because he’s not stating any facts or even theories except his own. He’s literally just pulling things out of the air and trying to parade them as truth.

    • the same way they got the fact you mentioned in the same way you should know prophet muhammad pbuh was illitrate reading the text was a longshot further more the assumption he actually copied the text before prophet hood from greece and translated it also not possible as the prophets life was recorded from the start to the end there is no such record of it

      • hey brother! Shalom alikum first of all for Ben and all other people who is against islam..this is Islamic greeting used by Jesus. This was the same greeting that was used by Jesus (pbuh) as is mentioned in the Gospel of Luke chapter No. 24 Verse No. 36 there he says in Hebrew Shalom Alaykum which in English means: Peace be unto you.[Gospel of Luke 24:36].
        now coming to proof u need to accept islam . about finger prints in Quran , barrier in sea which separates the water mixing up from another sea , about how a child is born in the same form of leach like substance, about Adam and Eve, about your future too after death and about people like u who wil be wandering blindly and they can’t see truth. go Google out topics I just said. I don’t even wanna give u reference to spoon feed . please work hard to find it by reading an actual Quran translation completely.

      • prophet Muhammad (pbuh) mentioned by name in the old testament:Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is mentioned by name in the Song of Solomon chapter 5 verse 16:

        “Hikko Mamittakim we kullo Muhammadim Zehdoodeh wa Zehraee Bayna Jerusalem.””

        His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughtersof Jerusalem.”

        In the Hebrew language im is added for respect. Similarely im is added after the name of Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) to make it Muhammadim. In English translation they have even translated the name of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) as “altogether lovely”, but in the Old Testament in Hebrew, the name of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is still present.

      • Concept of God in Christianity New Testament

        1.Jesus Christ Never Claimed DivinityOne may ask, if both Muslims and Christians love and respect Jesus(pbuh), where exactly is the parting of ways?

        The major difference between Islam and Christianity is the Christians’ insistence on the supposed divinity of Christ (pbuh).

        A study of the Christian scriptures reveals that Jesus (pbuh) never claimed divinity. In fact there is not a single unequivocal statement in the entire Bible where Jesus (pbuh) himself says, “I am God” or where he says, “worship me”. In fact the Bible contains statements attributed to Jesus (pbuh)in which he preached quite the contrary. The following statements inthe Bible are attributed to Jesus Christ:a.”My Father is greater than I.”[The Bible, John 14:28]b.”My Father is greater than all.”[The Bible, John 10:29]c.”…I cast out devils by the Spirit of God….”[The Bible, Mathew 12:28]d.”…I with the finger of God cast out devils….”[The Bible, Luke 11:20]e.”I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgement is just; because I seek not my own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.”[The Bible, John 5:30]

      • BHAGAVAD GITA:The most popular amongst all the Hindu scriptures is the Bhagavad Gita.Consider the following verse from the Gita:”Those whose intelligence has been stolen by material desires surrender unto demigods and follow the particular rules and regulations of worship according to their own natures.”[Bhagavad Gita 7:20]

      • UPANISHADS:The Upanishads are considered sacred scriptures by the Hindus.The following verses from the Upanishads refer to the Concept of God:1. “Ekam evadvitiyam””He is One only without a second.”[Chandogya Upanishad 6:2:1]12. “Na casya kascij janita na cadhipah.””Of Him there are neither parents nor lord.”[Svetasvatara Upanishad 6:9]23. “Na tasya pratima asti””There is no likeness of Him.”[Svetasvatara Upanishad 4:19]34. The following verses from the Upanishad allude to the inability of man to imagine God in a particular form:”Na samdrse tisthati rupam asya, na caksusa pasyati kas canainam.””His form is not to be seen; no one sees Him with the eye.”[Svetasvatara Upanishad 4:20]4

      • the additional info from all major relegion should show u that no human is god. god is one we Muslims call it as Allah. god is one from the time of Adam and before even world created but except islam all relegion made one god to many God’s. so choice is urs to understand which is right which is wrong. 🙂 hope it helps all . may Allah guide us all to right path. ameen

  5. Asalam o Alaykum brother.

    This is mashallah a very concise to the point post. I cam across it after researching about “hyksos” that a colleague at work brought up claiming ” that all religions are just the fabrications of people from the time of hyksos”.

    Excellent work. I will bookmark it. Keep up the good work.

    Masalam

  6. Hhhhhhhhhhhhhhh are you for real?! The amount of ignorance and bullshit in here is over the roof. People if you believe in this shit then I want to tell you that you are all bunch of simple minded fools. Jazak allah khair hhhhhhhhhh

  7. No one should attack the other’s faith. Neither should one go to lengths defending their faith. We no longer live in barbaric societies. We have intellect and our accomplishments are based on thousands of years of innovation. The fine print is pointless. If you believe in one of the three monotheistic faiths the stories will be familiar. Those who belong to other faiths are justified to believe and let believe. We need a world where there is peace and harmony. Miracles can be explained by science as God works in ways humans can understand. Timing is the miracle. Faith cannot be forced or preached. Faith is what we willfully believe in. I believe therefore I don’t need to explain myself. God never asked man to enforce religion. The Pharoah did. My faith tells me to live as man should live, in peace and harmony. The problem with Islam is with its followers, not Islam itself. Fear is used to control people. But those inculcating fear in others are cowards themselves. They are bullies. Certain Terrorists will use religion to justify their actions and that is why we exchange angry words with each other when we feel afraid that our religions are under threat. We interpret religion. The comments above are human interpretations. Religion gives us some pointers but we still have to use our intellect, our understanding, our knowledge of history and science to make sense of it all. The texts are ancient – written for societies that no longer exist. Their interpretation must acknowledge the fact that societies change with time. In the Koran, God respects the laws of the land but at the same time starts each verse with the words Most Beneficient and Most Merciful. This indicates that followers must remember to show mercy and beneficence. The rewards are far greater than following the law of the land. I talk from the standpoint of Islam. We must promote what is good about religion and shift the focus away from what is interpreted as bad. We no longer have slaves yet the Koran advocates freeing them but if unable to treat them with respect and again beneficence and mercy. The intent is what God will reward us with. Being arrogant about religion, being condescending or haughty, belittling etc are not Islamic virtues. Moses didn’t force the Pharoah to convert to the true religion. He may have suggested he consider believing in Moses’ God. The Pharoah’s behaviour is akin to a certain terrorist group today which uses religion to force people to do their bidding. They decide whether certain groups should live or die. We should be creating harmony, not discord. Man is but one of the many thousands of species on Earth. We share our barbarism with the animal kingdom. Yet religion civilised us and saved us from ourselves. We are at a point in mankinds evolution (intellect) that we live in a global world. We don’t need to convert anyone anymore or foist our interpretations on others. We need to have adult conversations yet we continue fighting each other like children! (I won’t be able to read any replies).

  8. Think of it this way, the quran is just another version of the bible that isn’t true. You take the miracles that happened in the bible and put them in the quran. The parting of the red sea isn’t magic, its the power of God.

  9. Earth speedvis one lac KMS pef hr Nd sun 800000 km hr simple proofs of allah ..some fools cant understNd our galaxy 22lac km per hr,, now so called fools will said it is astrology,,,, to iDntify god thre must be blessings ,,,allah may give them soon…dear fools think Of death stop commenting others,,, any how if u r fool u cant undestNd

  10. Salaam brother what does quran tell us about earth shape? and if u can compare what quran says and what science say for example. quran doesnt say the earth spins and the sun isnt center of everything.
    earth is the center everything and the sun and the moon orbits in theyr course.the star orbit around polaris the star that never moves but the all the stars orbit around it whithin the firmament.

      • let me research whit you brother. give me ur email and i will mail u my research what errors u maybe find correct me from it.but i do not seek answer from ”science” but from the quran only. science is what i see as New a religion
        its ”scientism”.everything was coincidence according to them.big bang and humans evolving from apes. thinking and believing that will take ‘Allah from your mind.how can are we not the Center of everything.
