15 Rajab 1442

Should we believe that quran has scientific miracles like many muslim dawees say? Recently I heard from a dawee that it’s problematic to say quran has scientific miracles because early scholars did’t say anything about it.

ANSWER:

The Quran is not a book of science but rather a book of signs. 

Its miraculous nature is in its linguistic superiority among other things. However, the fact that it contains some scientific miracles doesn’t make it a book of physics or math. Therefore, one must read it to get closer to Allah and not to be distracted from worshiping Him as this is why He created us.

Having said that, there are geological, biological and many other scientific miracles in the Quran but one must differentiate between facts and theories.

The Quran must not be used to prove theories as these can be proven wrong in the future and are not flawless while facts are beyond that.

One who talks about such signs must be a native Arab who has excellent command over the language so that he wouldn’t say what is not linguistically correct.  He must also be knowledgable in the different sciences of sharia.

The meaning one is looking for in such miracles must not go against any verse of the Quran or authentic hadeeth or the consensus of Muslims.
