The Atomic Number of Iron:

Iron is one of the elements mentioned in the Qur'an. Allah says this in the Surah called "al-Hadid," or "Iron:"

"...And We sent down iron in which there lies great force and which has many uses for mankind..." (Surat al-Hadid, 25)

The Atomic Number Of Iron

The word "anzalna," meaning "to send down," may also be thought of in the figurative sense of being placed at the service of human beings. But bearing in mind the true meaning of the word, which is "physically descending from the sky,"—used for rain and solar rays - then the verse can be seen to contain a hugely significant scientific miracle. Because modern astronomical findings have revealed that the iron on Earth came from giant stars in outer space. 

In addition, Surat al-Hadid also refers to the chemical symbol for iron. Because verse 15, in the exact middle of the Surah, begins with the Arabic letter "Fe," which is how iron is known to chemists.

In addition, the number emerging from a numerological [abjad] calculation of the words "al-Hadid," is the same as the number of the Surah: "57." A calculation of the word "hadid" alone produces the number 26. And this corresponds to the number of iron in the periodic table. The Qur'an, which contains the revelation of our Omniscient Lord, refers both to the formation of iron and to its atomic number. (Allah knows the truth.)

◉ Al-Hadid is the 57th Surah of the Qur'an, and the numerical value of the words al-Hadid is also 57.

◉ The value of the word "hadid" alone is 26, and this is also the atomic number of iron.

The Genetic Code of the Bee:

It is scientifically established that all the bees in the world have the same number of chromosomes-and that never changes. Male and female animals generally have the same number of chromosomes. But the bee is slightly different: the male bee has 16 single chromosomes and the female bee 16 pairs.



The bee is thus different in this respect, that of chromosome number. This difference is indicated in the Qur'an thus: (Allah knows the truth.) The Surah "Nahl," meaning bee, is the sixteenth Surah of the Qur'an, and “16” is the number of chromosomes these animals possess.

◉ Surat an-Nahl, meaning "Bee," is the 16th Surah.


◉ The bee has 16 chromosomes.

The Ratio of ohe Sea to the Land:

  The ratio of the appearances of the words "sea" and "land" in the Qur'an is identical to the ratio between sea and land in modern science. The continents had not yet been discovered at the time the Qur'an was sent down, and it was impossible to determine the ratio between the land and sea. Even such a large continent as America was only discovered in the 15th century.


 The word "land" appears 13 times in the Qur'an, while "sea" appears 32 times. These numbers total 45. If we divide the number of references to land in the Qur'an, 13, by 45, the result is 28.8888888889%. When we divide the number of references to sea in the Qur'an, 32, by 45, the result is 71.1111111111%. These ratios are the exact ones that apply between water and dry land on Earth.

 The repetition of these words in the Qur'an may be an indication that the Earth is 71% covered in water and 29% in dry land. (Allah knows the truth.) It has only been possible to arrive at this ratio in the present day, thanks to detailed satellite photos and intricate computer calculations.

◉ Number of times the word "land" appears in the Qur'an = 13

◉ Number of times the word "sea" appears in the Qur'an = 32

◉ Proportion of dry land to sea covering the Earth = 13/45 = 29%

◉ Proportion of sea to dry land on Earth = 32/45 = 71%

The Sputnik Rising To The Skies:

The first ever satellite, "Sputnik 1," was launched in 1957. Verse 19:57 (Surah Maryam, 57) of the Qur'an, amazingly, refers to rising and being raised.

"We raised him up to a high place." (Surah Maryam, 57)


 The term "rafa'nahu" in this verse is derived from the verb "refea," meaning "to raise, lift up or elevate." On the other hand, the word "aliyyan" in the verse bears the meaning of "high, very high" in addition to "great." When we consider this verse by itself, therefore, it means "being raised into a very high place." In that respect, verse 19:57 may be a reference to the launching into the sky of the spacecraft Sputnik 1 in 1957. (Allah knows the truth.)


◉ Verse 19:57 of the Qur'an speaks of "raising to a high place."

◉ "Sputnik 1," the first unmanned satellite, was launched in 1957.


The Rotation Of The Earth Around The Sun: 365 Days

 The word "day, "yawm" in Arabic appears 365 times in the Qur'an. It also takes the Earth 365 days to orbit the Sun.

The fact that the word "day" appears 365 times in the Qur'an is very important in terms of its providing information about the Earth's orbit hundreds of years ago. The repetition of the word "day" 365 times may be a reference to the 365-day relationship between the Earth and Sun. (Allah knows the truth.)

◉ The word "day (yavm)" appears 365 times in the Qur'an.

◉ It takes the Earth 365 days to orbit the Sun.
