Scientific Facts in Quran

According to the famous physicist and also the winner of Noble prize, Albert Einstein, “science without religion lame. Religion without science is blind” so therefore we have to study understand and analyse the Quran. There are more than six thousand ‘signs’ in the Quran of which more than a thousand deal with science.


Astrophysicists explained how the creation of the universe took place. A widely Accepted phenomenon that is known as the ‘Big Bang’, according to the ‘Big Bang’, initially the whole universe was a big mass called the primary Nebula. Than ‘Big Bang’ happened that caused the formation of Galaxies. These Galaxies than divided to form stars planets, the sun, the moon whole solar system.
The verse mentions in the Quran regarding the origin of the Universe is :

“Do not the Unbelievers see That the heavens and the earth Were joined together (as one Unit of Creation), before We clove them asunder?” [Al-Quran 21:30]
The Quran told us about the Creation of the universe 1,400 years ago that the science proved now.


Honey is a natural sweet that contain the number of varying proportions of fructose like water, glucose, oil etc that are produced by bees. Bees fly flower to flower to collect the different juice and forms the honey within its body that bee stores in its cell of wax.
Only a few years back a man came to know that honey come from the bee’s belly.
The same fact was mentioned in the Qur’aan about 1,400 years ago in the following Verse is:

“There issues From within their bodies A drink of varying colours, Wherein is healing for men.” [Al-Quran 16:69]


In earlier it was believed that the moon has its own light but now science proved that  does  not have its own light even its has the reflected light.This fact was mentioned in the Quran 1,400 years ago in the verse as:

“Blessed is He Who made Constellations in the skies, And placed therein
a Lamp And a Moon giving light.” [Al-Quran 25:61]

The sun in Arabic is called the shams.that is referred to as siraaj that  means a ‘torch’.it described that the Sun emits intense heat and light by its internal combustion so it has its own light.but  the Arabic word used for the moon is Qamar that is described in the holy Quran as muneer which is a body that gives nur(light). Here  the Quanic description again  matches  with the true nature of the moon, which does not have  its own light but has an inert body that reflects the light of the sun.


According to the verses:

  • And of everything We have created pairs.” [Al-Quan 51:49]
  • “Glory to Allah, Who created In pairs all things that The earth produces,as well as Their own (human) kind And (other) things of which They have no knowledge.” [Al-Quran 36:36]

Everything that is present on the earth is in the form of pairs we human, animal and even the plants and the other thing about which human did not discover yet and still do not know about their resent.


In earlier it was believed that  the earth is flat. Sir Francis Drake was the person that earth is spherical. During his journey upon the water in 1597.
Considering  the verses:

“Seest thou not that Allah merges Night into Day And He merges Day into Night?” [Al-Quran 31:29]
Merges Night into Day And the Day into Night here merging means that night slowly changes to day and day in tonight. This can be possible if the earth is spherical and cannot be possible if the earth is flat. Only a sudden changes can be possible in the flat earth.
