The Miracle of Quran about Iron

The Quran as a holy book containing the words of God is the best guide for mankind.

Many new scientific facts can be proven in this modern century that is supported by the advancement and sophistication of technology, but long before the development of technology, the Quran, the revelation of God that was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad has mentioned these scientific facts.

All of the above scientific facts match what was written in the Quran 1400 years ago. Thus, the Qur’an is indeed the word of God and is not a book produced by the Prophet Muhammad.

Because in the time of the Prophet, technology has not been this sophisticated. So it is impossible for the Prophet to know about this universe but because he got guidance from Allah SWT.

One of the wonders of the Qur’an is about the secret of iron. In the Qur’an, iron is one of the elements that is very clearly mentioned in the Qur’an. Even one of the letters in the Quran is taken from the name of one of these elements. In sura al-Adīd which means “Iron”, we are told as follows:

“… And We have created iron in which there is great strength and benefits for mankind,… [QS. Al-Adīd verse 25]

The word “anzalnaa” which means “we sent down” is specifically used for iron in this verse, can be interpreted figuratively to explain that iron was created to benefit mankind.

But when we consider the literal meaning of this word, which is “materially sent down from heaven”, we will realize that this verse has a very important scientific miracle.

But when we consider the literal meaning of this word, which is “materially sent down from heaven”, we will realize that this verse has a very important scientific miracle.

This is because modern astronomical discoveries have revealed that the iron metal found on our earth comes from giant stars in outer space.

Heavy metals in the universe are created and produced in the cores of giant stars. However, our solar system does not have a suitable structure to produce iron independently.

Proof of The Truth in the Quran

Iron can only be made and produced in stars much larger than the sun, whose temperature reaches several hundred million degrees.

The Miracle of Quran about Iron

When the amount of iron has exceeded a certain limit in a star, it is no longer able to bear it, and eventually explodes through an event called a “nova” or “supernova“.

As a result of this explosion, iron-containing meteors are scattered throughout the universe and they move through a vacuum until they are pulled by the gravitational forces of celestial bodies.

All of this suggests that iron metal was not formed on earth but rather a consignment of stars that exploded in space through meteors and were “sent down to earth”, just as stated in the verse: It is clear that this fact could not be scientifically known in the 7th century when the Qur’an was revealed.
