CAUTION! QURA'AN IS NOT JUST A BOOK .....READ TO LEARN THE MIRACLES OF QURA'AN part4Written by Harun yahya
THE MIRACLE IN THE IRON Iron is one of elements highlighted in Qur'an. In Sura Hadid, meaning Iron, we are informed:
And We sent down iron in which there lies great force and which has many uses for mankind.... (The Qur'an, 57:25) The word "sent down," particularly used for iron in verse, could be thought of having a metaphorical meaning to explain that iron has been given to benefit people. But when we take into consideration literal meaning of word, which is, "being physically sent down from sky", we realize that this verse implies a very significant scientific miracle. This is because modern astronomical findings have disclosed that iron found in our world has come from giant stars in outer space. The heavy metals in universe are produced in nuclei of big stars. Our solar system, however, does not possess a suitable structure for producing iron on its own. Iron can only be produced in much bigger stars than Sun, where temperature reaches a few hundred million degrees. When amount of iron exceeds a certain level in a star, star can no longer accommodate it, and eventually it explodes in what is called a "nova" or a "supernova". As a result of this explosion, meteors containing iron are scattered around universe, and they move through void until attracted by gravitational force of a celestial body. All this shows that iron did not form on Earth, but was carried from exploding stars in space via meteors, and was "sent down to earth", in exactly same way as stated in verse: It is clear that this fact could not have been scientifically known in 7th century, when Qur'an was revealed.
