017.088 Say: Verily, though mankind and the jinn should assemble to produce the like of this Qur'an, they could not produce the like thereof though they were helpers one of another. (AL-QURAN)
The Prostration of the Magicians Each messenger brought to his people a miracle commensurate with the kind of knowledge they most excelled in. Thus, because the people to whom Moses was sent excelled in magic, the form of the miracle, which he challenged them with, was of a magical nature. The magicians who observed Moses performing his miracle were among the first to believe in him and in God. Being in a better position than others to judge that the miracle was the supernatural work of a divine power and not the result of a magical skill, they were overwhelmed by what they witnessed. In recognition of the true faith that Moses was commanded to convey to them they fell on their knees in prostration. The Quran says: "But the sorcerers fell down prostrate, in adoration. Saying "We believe in the Lord of the Worlds, the Lord of Moses and Aaron." (Qur'an Al-A'raf 7:120-2)
Similarly, the challenging miracles of Jesus focussed on medical phenomena because his people were well advanced in medicine. He restored sight to the blind, cured lepers, revived the dead and demonstrated powers beyond human knowledge.
Because the Arabs at the time of Muhammad (pbuh) were masters in elocution, the miracle therefore came in the form to challenge their understanding from the vantage of their linguistic skills. The Quran with its literary inimitability was all the more astonishing because Muhammad (pbuh) himself was illiterate when the Quran was revealed to him. When the Arabs failed to match the language of the Quran, they accused Mohammed† (pbuh) of sorcery and even of being insane.
The miraculous features of the Quran are not confined to its linguistic inimitability. Indeed, it is filled with miraculous signs that will remain a challenge to mankind for eternity. One of the miraculous features of the Quran lies in the ever-expanding nature of the meanings contained in its verses and their inexhaustible capacity to accommodate even the most recent scientific discoveries.
A miracle can transcend the laws of nature or defy the characteristics of natural phenomena without posing a specific challenge to man. In this kind of miracle, God does not seek to challenge mankind, but to show His domination over the universe and man's incapacity to understand such occurrences in terms of cause and effects. Consequently, a true believer should always be prepared to attribute those happenings, which he cannot find an accountable cause to the will of God.
Quran has not only shown miracle in that era but also having shown many in this era. I will only give readers some simple examples of some mathematical miracles of quran.
Holy Quran that mention one thing is equal to another, i.e. man is equal
to women. Although this makes sense grammatically, the astonishing fact is that
the number of times the word man appears in the Quran is 24 and the number of
times the word woman appears is also 24, therefore not only is this phrase
correct in the grammatical sense but also true. Mathematically: (24 = 24)
Upon further analysis of various other
verses, he discovered that this is consistent
throughout the whole Quran, where it says one thing is
See below for some astonishing results:-
The word number of times mentioned in Arabic Quran:
* Dunia (one name
for life) 115
* Aakhirat (one name for the life after) 115
* Shaytan (satan) 88
* Life 145
* Death 145
* Benefit 50
* Corrupt 50
* People 50
* Messengers 50
* Eblees (king of
* Seek refuge from eblees 11
* Thanks 75
* Satisfaction 73
* People who are Mislead
* Dead people 17
* Muslimeen 41
* Jihad 41
* Gold 8
* Easy life 8
* Magic 60
* Fitnah (dissuasion,misleading) 60
* Zakat (taxes
Muslims pay for the poor) 32
* Barakah (increasing or blessings of a wealth) 32

* Hardship 114
* Patience 114
* Muhammad 4
* Sharee'ah (Muhammad's teachings)4
* Man 24
* Woman 24
And amazingly enough have a look how many times the
* Solat (Prayer )
* Month 12
* Day 365
* sea 32
* Land 13
* Sea + land = 32 + 13 = 45
* % sea = 32/45 x 100 = 71.11111111%
* % land= 13/45 x 100 = 28.88888889%
Modern Science has
only recently proven that the water
covers 71.111 % of the earth, while the land covers
28.889 %. Is this a coincidence?
Who taught prophet
Mohammad (PBUH) all this?
Allah, the All Mighty taught him this.
As the Quran tells us:
(This is) a Book,
the Verses whereof are perfected (in
every sphere of knowledge, etc.), and then explained
in detail from One (All‚h), Who is
All-Wise and Well-Acquainted (with all things).
The above is from
the series of the scientific
miracles in Quraan, by
Dr. Tariq Al Suwaidan
Quran has all the secrets of world and answer to every question is presenting Quran, but it just needs to research on it or to explore it. On exploration one can find the answer of each and every question.
One of the greatest drawback of muslims is that they lack the unity, and are struggling because of raising of claims on each other about the selections of imams. Instead of keeping out the hidden knowledge of Islam they are wasting there resources, in a fighting that results to no thing. If they follow Quran, and those who have the true knowledge of Quran, they will never been held in any conflict. After the physical death of our last prophet (PBUH) the Muslims held in conflict and they have started chosen different imams for their guidance. No one has the same number of Imams. There are different numbers of imams in every which varies to more then 48. But in Quran the word Imam has been used only 12 times. Which is the exact number told by our last Prophet (PBUH).
References to verses where the word Imam has been used in Quran are:† 2:124, 9:12, 11:17,† 15:79, 17:71, 21:73, 28:5, 28:41, 32:24, 36:12, 46:12. Please read verses in Arabic and do not only read translations:
