Mathematical Miracles Of The Qur’an Part 3

Some of The Chemical Elements Indicated In The Qur’an

The entire universe, the Earth we live on and all living and inanimate entities are made up of various combinations of elements. Although the atoms that comprise the elements are all made up of the same particles, they possess exceedingly diverse characteristics. What essentially makes the elements different from one another is their atomic numbers—in short, the number of protons in their nuclei. There is one proton in hydrogen, the lightest element, 2 in helium, the next lightest, 79 in gold, 8 in an oxygen atom and 26 in iron. The property that differentiates gold from iron, or iron from oxygen is merely the number of protons in their respective atoms. The air we breathe, the human body, any plant or animal or planet in space, living or inanimate, sweet or sour, solid or liquid: absolutely everything is made up of protons, neutrons and electrons within Allah's Sublime Creation. (For details see The Miracle of the Atom [Ta-Ha Publishers Ltd])

"Hadid"—one of the Surahs in the Qur'an – literally means "iron," one of the elements. Other elements and their atomic numbers and masses are also indicated in this Surah. (Allah knows the truth.) To put it another way, Surat al-Hadid contains information about the atoms which constitute the very matter that makes up the universe. The provision of this information, at a time when the elements and their atomic numbers had not been discovered, is yet another spectacular miracle of the Qur'an.

The sequence of the Arabic letters in Surat al-Hadid represent expressions containing our Lord's Commands—and it also carried pertinent scientific advice on the one hand and references concerning atoms on the other.

This study was conducted taking the Arabic letter "Ra" as the "R" in Western alphabets or "Mim" as the letter "M." The sequence of the letters representing the element is not considered. It is sufficient for the letters to appear side by side. This is because the letters in the element Kr, for example, do not represent another element by the name of "Rk."

periodic table
Scientists have identified 92 natural elements. Artificial elements have also been obtained by various experiments in recent times, but these are seldom found on Earth.
To date, the existence of 110 elements has been verified by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC).

Radon = 86Rn

RadonThe element Radon (Rn) was discovered by the German chemist Friedrich E. Dorn in 1900, hundreds of years after the revelation of the Qur'an. The element is rarely found in nature. Radon is radioactive element and used in medical treatments.

Zirconium =40Zr

ZirconiumZirconium (Zr) was discovered by the German chemist Martin Heinrich Klaproth in 1789. Of course, nobody in 7th Century Arabia would have known about Klaproth or Zirconium or its scientific make-up. Therefore, a Qur’anic reference to this element, used in the cores of nuclear reactors, hundreds of years beforehand, is certainly a considerable miracle. There are 40 letters between the first time that the letters "Z" and "R" appear together and the beginning of the verse. The atomic number of Zirconium, chemical symbol Zr, is 40. There are also 91 letters between the first time the letters "Z" and "R" come together and the end of the actual verse – and remarkably, that number is the atomic weight of Zirconium.

Tantalum = 73Ta

TantalumThe element Tantalum (Ta) was discovered by the Swedish chemist Anders Ekeberg in 1802. It is a very tough, durable element with a very high melting point. It is therefore used in such areas as electrics and electronics as it can withstand a great deal of heat. In addition, since this element does not react with bodily fluids, it is also employed regular in many famous medicines. This element, discovered centuries after the revelation of the Qur'an, is one of the rarest in nature.

There are 73 letters from the beginning of the verse to the first time the letters "T" and "A" appear together—and quite amazingly, that figure is the atomic number of Tantalum.
