Science facts

To attribute the presence of scientific facts in the Qur’an to coincidence would be against common sense and true scientific approach.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran – 41:53 We will show them Our signs in the universe and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that this ˹Quran˺ is the truth. Is it not enough that your Lord is a Witness over all things?

Arabic: سَنُرِيهِمْ آيَاتِنَا فِي الْآفَاقِ وَفِي أَنفُسِهِمْ حَتَّىٰ يَتَبَيَّنَ لَهُمْ أَنَّهُ الْحَقُّ أَوَلَمْ يَكْفِ بِرَبِّكَ أَنَّهُ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ شَهِيدٌ

The Quran invites all humans to reflect on the Creation of this universe.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran – 3:190 Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of the day and night there are signs for people of reason.

Arabic: إِنَّ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَاخْتِلَافِ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ لَآيَاتٍ لِّأُولِي الْأَلْبَابِ

Earth fact

The Quran tells us, the Earth was “spread” [79:30]. In this verse (Ayat), in the original Arabic, the word “daha” is used. It comes from the root word “dahv” which means: “to spread.” Scientifically this is accurate. The spin of the Earth over the course of millions of years has caused the earth to spread out. In Scientific terms,  “rotational flattening” has given the earth a spheroid-oblate kind of shape.
