Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to share with you an ayat(verse) in the Quran that talks about how a person who moves up in altitude his/her chest contracts, in which modern science has proven after the revelation

In the Quran it states, “So whoever Allah wants to guide – He expands his breast to [contain] Islam; and whoever He wants to misguide – He makes his breast tight and constricted as though he were climbing into the sky. Thus does Allah place defilement upon those who do not believe.” (Surah An’am 6:125).

Mammalian animals, such as human beings, need oxygen to live. Science has also shown how atmospheric pressure dictates the amount of oxygen human beings can intake. As human beings ascend up a mountain, or go up in altitude, the atmospheric pressure declines as well as the amount of oxygen that gets entered into your system due to the thinning of air. As the oxygen content declines we have trouble breathing because our chests contract against our lungs. This is why people who climb mountains will sometimes bring oxygen tanks to help them breathe. There is a link below that explains the science in more detail.

Now, back to the Quran, how can someone who got revelation 1400 years ago know about this scientific concept that was only discovered afterwards? It is not mere coincidence if scientific concepts of the Quran keep occurring that was not possible 1400 years ago. The Quran is the true incorruptible word of God.

Inshal’Allah we all turn back to Allah(SWT) and ask for guidance, protection, forgiveness, and to enter us in Jannah-al-Firdaus.



Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to share with you two verses of the Quran that talk about the weight of clouds. Astonishingly clouds can carry up to a lot of weight as proven by modern day science and exemplified in the Quran 1400 years ago.

The Quran states:

“And it is He who sends the winds as good tidings before His mercy until, when they have carried heavy rainclouds . . .” (Surah A’raf, 7:57)

“It is He who shows you lightening, [causing] fear and aspiration, and generates the heavy clouds.” (Surah Ra’d, 13:12)

The key words that should be noted in these two ayats is that Allah(SWT) mentions clouds as being heavy. 1400 years ago and even till today people may look upon clouds and it may seem like there are extremely light due to it floating in such high altitudes. However, when you calculate the weight of water inside these clouds it is very interesting that they weigh a lot. As an example, a cumulus cloud can contain up to 300, 000 tons of water which is roughly 300000000 kg or 661386786.555 pounds of water. Suban’Allah the beauty of the Quran. If you do not believe me just look it up yourself and be astonished.

Insha’Allah we all ask Allah(SWT) to forgive us, guide us, protect us, and enter us in Junnah-al-Firdaus.
