Scientific Miracle: The mystery in iron with atomic number in the Quran.
Let us see first the verse that mentions the importance and characteristics of iron:
25- We have surely sent Our messengers with clear signs, and sent with them the book and the balance, so that man may stand by justice; and We sent down the iron, wherein there is strength, and many benefits for the people. So that God would know who will support Him and His messengers in secret. Verily God is Powerful, Almighty.
The verb “inzal” in the Quran is usually used to describe the action of coming from above the earth. The temperature of the earth was not sufficient, at the beginning, for the formation of iron. Not only the earth, but even a middle-sized star like our sun did not have the heat necessary for the formation of iron. That is why iron must have come to our planet, as well as to the entire solar system, from outer space. The iron we have in our planet today must have come to our solar system from other stars that had higher temperatures favorable for the formation of iron. Can it be possible that while describing the formation of the iron, the Quran’s drawing attention to iron’s landing from outside to our world by the word “inzal” is to emphasize this phenomenon?
The Quran shows other mathematical miracles by pointing out the iron’s atomic number, which is 26, in different ways.
