Scientific Miracles in Quran

The last book of Muslims was revealed about 1400 years ago. This was revealed on the last prophet of Allah, Hazrat Muhammad (p.b.u.h). It is a book of guidance that was conveyed to the mankind. Quran teachings give the true essence of the will of God that is to be followed by the mankind. Quran is the miracle of Allah that would be fololo9ed till the judgment day. This is the book that prepares Muslims for the judgment day. Quran is a complete code of life. It has laid the foundation of the scientific discoveries and growth as well.

It is to be noted that the Quran is not just limited to the Muslims, but it is a treasure of wisdom and knowledge for those who read understand and learn Quran. There are a few scientific predictions and miracles mentioned in the Quran which were later discovered:

1) The Quran states, "and it is We who have constructed the heaven with might and verily. It is We who are steadily expanding it" (The Quran, 51:47). It is now known that universe is expanding. The motion of the universe was verified by NASA as well.
2) The orbits that we know about in the present date were mentioned in the Quran 1400 yaers ago. As said in the Quran:
"it is He who created the night and the day, and the Sun and the Moon. They swim along each in an orbit" (The Quran, 36:38).
3) Noiw we know that there are paths that handle vast universe. In another verse the God Almighty says, "By the sky, full of orbits and paths" (The Quran, 51:7). Today we know that Sun is not static and all the planets are moving on their predefined orbits.
4) In another ayat the word folding up is used for the circular motion of the planets. As said in the Quran:
"He has created the Heavens and the Earth for truth. He wraps up the night in the day and wraps the day up in the night" (The Quran 39:5).
5) Now we all know that everything is created in pairs. This was discovered in 1933. But infact this was mentioned in the Quran in the 7th century. As said in the holy Quran:
“Glory be to Him who created all in pairs. From what the earth produces, from themselves and from things unknown to them" (The Quran 36:36).
