THE MIRACLE OF THE QURAN

 

In the Quran Allah draws our attention to very interesting attribute to the sky:

 

SURAH AL AMBIYA VERSE 32:

 

“We made the sky a preserved and protected roof yet still they turn away from our signs”.

This attribute to the sky has been proved by scientific research done in the 20th Century.

The atmosphere surrounding the earth serves crucial functions for the continuity of life. It dents many meteors and preventing them from falling to the earth and harming living things.

The atmosphere filters the light rays coming from space that are harmful, e.g. Ultra violet rays from the sun.

Interestingly the atmosphere allows only useful light and radiation to come to earth which helps photosynthesis for survival of living things. The rest is filtered out of the atmosphere i.e. the ozone layer.

Our atmosphere protects us from freezing cold (-270C) from space; solar flares from the sun

(1 flare = approximately 100 billion atomic bombs and harmful radiation which is deadly to living things.

 

A perfect system surrounds our earth and protects it against external threats. Scientist discovered it now yet it exists in the Quran 1435 years ago.
