Here are two amazing miracles about Iron found in the Quran.
Miracle #1 – The Quran tells us in verse 25 of Surah Hadeed (Iron) “…And We sent down iron, wherein there is awesome power and many benefits for people,…”. Science tells us that iron that exists on Earth today originated from supernova explosions (millions of light years away in space) that occurred billions of years ago. During a supernova explosion, massive stars undergo a catastrophic collapse, which releases a tremendous amount of energy and heavy elements into space. This process is thought to be responsible for the formation of many of the elements in the periodic table, including iron. After the formation of the solar system, asteroids and comets collided with the early Earth, bringing iron and other elements to the planet’s surface… SubhanAllah (Glory to be Allah), it’s quite amazing that in this verse, Allah used the words “SENT DOWN”.
Miracle #2 – Iron’s most stable isotope has an atomic mass number of 57. (The atomic mass number, which is also called the mass number, is the total number of protons and neutrons in the nucleus of an atom.) Surah Hadeed (Chapter of Iron) is number 57 in the Quran. It’s also amazing that it’s right in the middle of the Quran (57 is half of 114, which the total number of chapters of the Quran). Iron is at the core/center of the earth and is responsible for earth’s rotation and to keep it stable because of its magnetic field.
