f:849 -    Proof that the Holy Quran is book of Allah
Country : ,
Name : submittername
Question:     Do you have any proof that the Holy Quran is book of Allah or is it only because it is written in the Holy Quran and the Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) says it?
Answer:     The Holy Quran does not want blind faith.  Time and again, the Holy Quran invites people to think, reflect and then decide.  

The Holy Quran itself says:

Do they not ponder over the Qur’an? Had this (Qur’an come) from anyone other than Allah, these people would have found in it many contradictions.  Surah Nisa (4:82)

Here the Holy Quran itself is answering your question.  In spite of the fact that it was revealed 1400+ years ago, it has described many marvels of nature, which could not be confirmed until recently.

It is given:

O people! If you are in doubt about being raised up (after death) then (contemplate your creation and evolution). We initiated your creation (i.e. chemical genesis) from (the extract of) clay, then (your biological genesis) from a sperm drop (zygote), then from a hanging mass (clinging to the uterus like a leech — embryo) and then from a lump of flesh looking chewed, having manifest contours of elementary formation of some parts of the body and others yet to form (fetus), so that We might show you (Our Power and the trueness of Our Revelations). So We cause whom We please to stay in the wombs till an appointed time. Then We bring you forth as an infant, then (nourish you) so that you may reach your youth. And of you are (also) some who die (early) and some are brought to quite a worthless age so that (he may see this state too that) having learnt so much knowledge, now he knows (just) nothing (once more). And you see the earth completely dry (i.e. dead) and when We shower water on it, a stir of freshness and fertility runs through it. And it swells enriched and puts forth in pairs every kind of blooming and beauteous vegetation.  Surah Al Haj (22:5)

It is given at another place:

Then We made that zygote a hanging mass (clinging to the uterus like a leech). Then We developed that hanging mass into a lump, looking chewed with teeth. Out of this chewed lump We built a structure of bones which We clothed with flesh (and muscles). Then (changing him) into another form We developed him (gradually) into a new creation. Then Allah brought (him up into a strong body), Allah — the Best of creators.  Surah Muminoon (23:14)

That the embryo looks like a leech could not have been found out by the then available methods.

It is given in Surah Rahman:

He is the One Who has made the two seas flow that join each other; there is a barrier between them; they cannot breach (their respective) limits.  Surah Rahman (55:19-20).

Or, Who made the earth a dwelling place and made rivers amid it and made for it huge mountains and put a barrier between the two seas (of salt and sweet waters)? Is there any (other) God besides Allah? But most of these (disbelievers) do not have knowledge.  Surah Naml (27:61)

It has been discovered that what distinguishes fresh water from salt water in estuaries is a “pycnocline zone with a marked density discontinuity separating the two layers.” This partition (zone of separation) has a salinity different from both the fresh water and the salt water.  (Oceanography, Gross, Pg. No. 300-301)

This verse of the Holy Quran is doubly important because the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) never went to any sea nor traveled by it.

This is but a sample from the Holy Quran.  Now please judge for yourself whether the Holy Quran is the work of a human being or the Lord Almighty Himself.

And Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) knows best.
