1. Creating Humans With A Drop Of Liquid
Surah Al Alaq Verse 2- “Convey thou in the name of thy Lord Who created,”
Verse 3 – “Created man from a clot of blood.”
The ayat about humans being created with a drop of liquid like leech.
Centuries ago this word, ‘Alaq’ was mostly known as meaning “a clot of congealed blood“.
But overall this word has 3 meanings
1) A clot of congealed blood.
2) A thing which clings
3) Leech-like substance (Semen is also a leech-like substance)
Science proved some years ago that a human is made of semen. Some non Muslim scholars were happy and started debating that a verse of the Quran is proven wrong; but then they came to know that Alaq is an Arabic word having 3 meanings and one of them is “leech-like” substance which is semen which made this turn in favor of the Holy Quran. Recent research shocked people because it proves semen (leech-like substance) works like a clot of congealed blood and then clings inside the body in different stages. This proves that all the three meanings of word ‘Alaq’ are scientifically true.
2. Heaven And Earth Were Joint Entities
Surah Anbiya Verse 30 – “Do not see those who disbelieved that the heavens and the earth were a joined entity, then We parted them and We made from [the] water every living thing? Then will not they believe?”
and Surah Anbiya Verse 33
“And it is He who created the night and the day and the sun and the moon; all [heavenly bodies] in an orbit are swimming.”
A few years ago, science failed repeatedly to find out whether the sun follows an orbit or not? Because of its light it was hard to see the sun. However, following that, successful research proved that the sun also moves in its own orbit.
3. The Sun Has It’s Own Light While The Moon Reflects That Light
Surah Al-Furqan Verse 61 – “Blessed is He who has placed in the sky great stars and placed therein a [burning] lamp and luminous moon.”
The Arabic word for moon is ‘qamar’ and the light described is ‘muneer’, which is borrowed light, or ‘noor’ which is a reflection of light.
And in the Quran, Sun is always written as lamp.
Quran said that 1400 years ago that the moonlight is reflected which is proven by science today.
4. The Actual Shape Of The Earth Is Not Flat
Surah An Nazi’at Verse 30 -“And we have made the earth egg shaped”
The Arabic word ‘Dahaha’ means egg shaped. It also means an expanse. Dahaha is derived from Duhiya which specifically refers to the egg of an ostrich, which is geo-spherical in shape, exactly like the shape of the earth.
Even NASA admitted that the exact shape of Earth is not round – it is like an egg shape.
5. All Living Things Have 2 Sexes
Surah Taha verse 53 – “It is He who has made for you the earth as a cradle and threaded roads for you and sends down water from the sky with it”
“… With it We produced diverse pairs of plants each separate from the others”
The Arabic word “Azwaj” is used for pairs and also for sexes. Botany exposed much later that plants also have 2 sexes, male and female.
