What are the miracles of the quran? What is the biggest miracle in quran? What is the islamic view of miracles?
It was the 7th century. When the people looked at the sky, they saw thousands of stars, but they did know what they were. They fabricated names for them by likening their shapes to certain objects, told fortunes by their names, and sometimes benefited from them to determine their directions.
Allah Almighty swears in the Qur’an:
“No! I swear by the fallings of the stars, And that is indeed a mighty adjuration if ye but knew.” (al-Waqi’a, 56: 75-76)
The expression “mawqi” translated as “the fallings of the stars” refers to the place to be fallen. Today’s astronomers and physicists say that the “the fallings (mawqi’) of the stars” means the white holes where the stars rise and the black holes where the stars disappear. Mankind was able to develop its information about the space in 19th and 20th centuries long after the invention of telescope.
While any system of coincidence that is the product of man cannot bring good, decent and meaningful results, how is it possible to believe that trillions of subsequent accurate coincidences happen in nature? This is the abdication of reason!
There are white and black holes in the sky. Allah Almighty swears on these holes that have been recently discovered by the modern science. The following fact recently discovered by modern science shows what a magnificent book is the Qur’an. The place where the stars rise is called the white hole, the place where the stars disappear is called the black hole. A small object comes out of the white hole and forms a new star by an immediate expansion to trillion times of its size. And many enormous stars that are many times bigger than the earth disappear by entering in a black hole when the time comes and falls into the graveyard of stars. One day our sun will too experience the truth expressed in the following verse:
“When the sun (with its spacious light) is folded up…” (al-Takwir, 81: 1)
In the past, the majority of the disbelieving philosophers were claiming that the universe was eternal by their own reasoning which were not based on observations and evidences. However, the recent studies conducted in positive sciences are forced to admit that the universe has a beginning. According to a theory, while the matter was in the united form of a gas cloud, the universe started to be formed by an immediate explosion.
The Qur’an pointed out these truths in the 7th century:
“And He [it is who] applied His design to the skies, which were [yet but] smoke…” (Fussilat, 41: 11)
However, human intellect can only benefit mankind within the contents of the divine revelation. Because human intellect is an instrument similar to a knife with two sharp sides. It can be used for both the benefits and harms. In fact, one may use a sharp surgical knife both to perform a surgical operation and to commit a murder.
“Are, then, they who are bent on denying the truth not aware that the heavens and the earth were [once] one single entity, which We then parted asunder? – and [that] We made out of water every living thing? Will they not, then, [begin to] believe?” (al-Anbiya, 21: 30)
The big bang theory, which tells that the universe came to existence by the flow of expanding energy (or a big explosion) was proved in the 20th century by the fact discovered by means of telescopes that the universe still expands. According to this theory, enormous galaxies move away from each other in direct proportion to the distance between them. For example, while a galaxy which is 10 million light-years away from us moves away from us 250 kilometers per second, the moving away speed of a galaxy which is 10 billion light-years away from us is 250 thousand kilometers per second.
