God supported His last Prophet
Muhammad with many
miracles and much evidence which proved that he is a true Prophet sent by
God. Also, God supported His last revealed book, the Holy Quran, with many
miracles that prove that this Quran is the literal word of God, revealed by Him,
and that it was not authored by any human being. This chapter discusses some of
(1) The Scientific Miracles
in the Holy Quran
Quran is the literal word of God, which He revealed to His Prophet Muhammad
through the Angel Gabriel. It
was memorized by Muhammad ,
who then dictated it to his Companions. They, in turn, memorized it, wrote
it down, and reviewed it with the Prophet Muhammad .
Moreover, the Prophet Muhammad
reviewed the Quran with the Angel Gabriel once each year and twice in the last
year of his life. From the time the Quran was revealed, until this day,
there has always been a huge number of Muslims who have memorized all of the
Quran, letter by letter. Some of them have even been able to memorize all
of the Quran by the age of ten. Not one letter of the Quran has been
changed over the centuries.
Quran, which was revealed fourteen centuries ago, mentioned facts only recently
discovered or proven by scientists. This proves without doubt that the
Quran must be the literal word of God, revealed by Him to the Prophet Muhammad ,
and that the Quran was not authored by Muhammad
or by any other human being. This also proves that Muhammad
is truly a prophet sent by God. It is beyond reason that anyone fourteen
hundred years ago would have known these facts discovered or proven only
recently with advanced equipment and sophisticated scientific methods.
Some examples follow.
