Scientific Miracles of the Quran

By Quran Schooling | 12 February 2020

Quran is the most sacred book for Muslims of the entire world. Every Muslims respects the Holy Quran and wants to spend his life according to the teachings of the Holy Quran. Each and every word of the Quran is authentic and there is no ambiguity and doubt in its verses. Allah has mentioned those facts in the Holy Quran which are being proved by the science about 1400 years after its revelation. According to Dr. Zakir Naik, famous religious scholar, there are more than thousand verses in the Holy Quran which speak about science. There are an unlimited number of miracles of science. But in this article, I am going to tell describe only 5 biggest scientific miracles of the Holy Quran.

The Big Bang Theory in the Quran

The big bang theory states that, initially, our universe was one primary Nebula. Then there was a Big Bang explosion and the earth came into existence. The Holy Quran has mentioned this fact in the Quran 1400 years ago. Quran describes the big bang theory in the following words.

“Do not the unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined entity, and we separated them and made from water every living thing? Then will they not believe?” Surah Anbiya verse 30

It is clear from the verse of Holy Quran that the heavens and the Earth was one entity and Allah separated them.

Water Cycle in the Quran

Every science student is familiar with the term “water cycle”. It tells us that the water evaporates from the ocean, moves up into the clouds, moves to the other areas and falls down on the earth as rain. It was first described by Sir Bernard Palissy in 1580 A.D. But it is mentioned in the Quran way back than his Sir Bernard Palissy’s description. The Holy Quran describes the water cycle in the following words.

“And it is Allah who sends the winds, and they carry the clouds, and We drive them to a dead land and give life thereby to the earth after its lifelessness. Thus (it) is the restoration.” Surah Faatir, Verse 9.

There is not only one place where Allah describes about water cycle, but several other places in the Holy Quran also mention about this phenomenon.

Oceans Meeting But Not Mixing

Today, almost everyone has come to know about the two oceans which are meeting but they are not mixing into each other. These are Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. But the Quran has mentioned about these oceans about 1400 years ago.

“He released two seas meeting (side by side), between them is a barrier, (so) neither of them transgresses.” Surah Rehman, Verses 19-20.

It is also mentioned in the Surah, Al Furqaan, Verse 53, where the same thing is mentioned in the Holy Quran.

Creation of Everything from Water

Modern science tells us that every living thing contains 60% to 70% of water in its body. Our body consists of cells and cells contain water in them. But Allah has mentioned this fact hundreds of years back in the Holy Quran. There is a verse in the Holy Quran which tells us that:

“And we have created every living thing from water” Surah Anbiya Verse 30. The science has proved this fact a few years ago but Allah Allah has mentioned it in the Holy Quran more than 1400 hundred years ago.

Birth Stages in the Holy Quran

The study of Embryology is also mentioned in the Holy Quran. Allah has mentioned the stages of birth in the Holy Quran which science is proving nowadays with its modern equipment. Allah has mentioned every stage of childbirth in the Holy Quran. Allah has mentioned the stages of birth in the following words. “And surely did We create man from an extract of clay. Then We placed him as a sperm-drop in a firm lodging. Then We made the sperm-drop into a clinging clot, and We made the clot into a lump [of flesh], and We made [from] the lump, bones, and We covered the bones with flesh; then We developed him into another creation. So blessed is Allah, the best of creators.” Surah Al Mu’minoon, Verses 12-14.


Miracles of the Holy Quran are endless. There are a countless number of discoveries and inventions of science which are already mentioned in the Holy Quran. There are several other facts mentioned in the Quran that are not yet proved by science. But it is necessary for us to understand the Holy Quran in order to know what scientific miracles and knowledge about the world is mentioned in it. That is why Quran Schooling offers a number of different Quran learning courses which make a person enable to understand the Holy Quran in Depth.
