Miracles of the Qur'an
Fourteen centuries ago, Allah SWT sent down the Qur’an as a book of guidance for all of mankind, a guide to the truth. This last divine book will remain the sole guide for humanity to the Day of Judgement.
The wisdom contained within the Qur’an as well as the miracles contained therein are definite evidence that these are the words and revelations from Allah SWT. These miracles extend from basic arithmetic to the most advanced topics in astrophysics, including numerous scientific truths that humanity has only been able to uncover by recent technological advances. These facts could not have been known at the time of the Qur’an’s revelation, and this is still more proof that the Qur’an is the word of God.
What are the factors that make the Qur’an so miraculous?
- The Message: Every single verse has meaning and is full of wisdom and teaches us something significant such as the names and the attributes to Allah;
- Language: The language and style of the Arabic of the Qur’an leaves us in awe and is the epitome of sheer eloquence;
- Predictions: Day of Judgment, the Quran will not be reproduced, Romans versus Persians, victory of the Romans, victory of the Muslims over Mecca, al-Badr, etc;
- Stories: How did Prophet Muhammad ﷺ know these stories? Many of these are not even in the Old and New Testaments;
- Science: The Quran tells us about things that the Prophet ﷺ and the people at the time could not have known such as the orbits, embryology and much more.
- The effect that the Qur’an has on its listeners: No one can listen to the Qur’an without being completely unaffected and even leads some people to embrace Islam.
- The fact that the Qur’an has no contradiction to it: The Qur’an was revealed over a period of 23 years.
- The ease by which the Qur’an is memorised: There is no other book that has been more frequently memorised as the Qur’an with over millions of Muslims doing so in its entirety. This is nothing short of a standing living walking miracle and is very much under appreciated at that.
