9 Astonishing Facts in the Quran that will Surprise You

IN SEARCH FOR TRUTH

Ever since the dawn of mankind, we have sought to understand nature and our place in it.

In this quest for the purpose of life many people have turned to religion. Most religions are based on books claimed by their followers to be divinely inspired, without any proof. Islam is different because it is based upon reason and proof.

There are clear signs that the book of Islam, the Quran, is the word of God and we have many reasons to support this claim:

· There are scientific and historical facts found in the Quran which were unknown to the people at the time, and have only been discovered recently by contemporary science.

· The Quran is in a unique style of language that cannot be replicated, this is known as the ‘Inimitability of the Quran.’

· There are prophecies made in the Quran and by the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) which have come to be pass.

The following are some facts found in the Quran:

1.  Origin of Life

Water is essential for all living things. We all know that water is vital to life but the Quran makes a very unusual claim:

{We made every living thing from water. Will they not believe?} (Quran 21:30)

In this verse water is pointed out as the origin of all life.  All living things are made of cells.  We now know that cells are mostly made up of water[1].  For example, 80% of the cytoplasm (basic cell material) of a standard animal cell is described as water in biology textbooks.

The fact that living things consist mostly of water was discovered only after the invention of the microscope.  In the deserts of Arabia, the last thing someone would have guessed is that all life came from water.

2.  Iron

Iron is not natural to the earth.  It did not form on the earth but came down to earth from outer space.  This may sound strange but it’s true.  Scientists have found that billions of years ago the earth was stuck by meteorites.  These meteorites were carrying Iron from distant stars which had exploded.[2]

The Quran says the following on the origin of Iron:

{We sent down Iron with its great inherent strength and its many benefits for humankind.} (Quran 57:25)

God uses the words ‘sent down’ for Iron.  It is clear from the verse that Iron is not an earthly material, but was sent down for the benefit of humanity.  The fact that Iron came down to earth from outer space is something which could not be known by the primitive science of the 7th century.

3.  Sky’s Protection

sky quranThe sky plays a crucial role in protecting the earth.  The sky protects the earth from the lethal rays of the sun.  If the sky did not exist then the sun’s radiation would have killed off all life on earth.  It also acts like a blanket wrapped around the earth, to protect it from the freezing cold of space.

The temperature just above the sky is approximately -270oC.  If this temperature was to reach earth then the planet would freeze over instantly.  The sky also protects life on earth by warming the surface through heat retention (greenhouse effect), and reducing temperature extremes between day and night[3].  These are some of the many protective functions of the sky.

The Quran asks us to consider the sky in the following verse:

{We made the sky a protective ceiling.  And yet they are turning away from Our signs!} (Quran 21:32)

The Quran points to the sky’s protection as a sign of God.  The protective properties of the sky were discovered by scientific research conducted in the 20th century.

4.  Mountains

The Quran draws our attention to a very important characteristic of mountains:

{Did We not make the earth a resting place? And the mountains as stakes?} (Quran 78:6-7)

The Quran indicates that mountains have deep roots by using the word stakes to describe them.  In fact mountains do have deep roots, and the word stakes is an accurate description for them.

A book titled ‘Earth’ by Geophysicist Frank Press explains that mountains are like stakes, and are buried deep under the surface of the earth. Mount Everest (pictured below), the height of which is approximately 9 km above ground, has a root deeper than 125 km.

The fact that mountains have deep ‘stake’ like roots was not known, until after the development of the theory of plate tectonics in the beginning of the 20th century.[6]

5.  Expansion of the Universe

At a time when the science of Astronomy was still primitive, the expansion of the universe was described in Quran:

{And it is We who have built the Universe with [Our creative] power and keep expanding it.} (Quran 51:47)

The fact that the universe is expanding was discovered in the last century.  The physicist Stephen Hawking in his book ‘A Brief History of Time’ writes, “The discovery that the universe is expanding was one of the great intellectual revolutions of the 20th century.”.[4]

The Quran mentioned the expansion of the universe even before the invention of the telescope!

6.  Sun’s Orbit

In 1512 the astronomer Nicholas Copernicus put forward his theory that the Sun is motionless at the centre of the solar system, and that the planets revolve around it.  The belief that the Sun is stationary was widespread amongst astronomers until the 20th century.  It is now a well-established scientific fact that the Sun is not stationary, but is moving in an orbit around the centre of our Milky Way galaxy[5].

The Quran mentions the orbit of the Sun:

{It is He who created night and day, the Sun and the Moon, each floating in its orbit.} (Quran 21:33)

The Quran would have been wrong according to astronomers just a couple of decades ago.  But we now know that the Quranic account of the Sun’s motion is consistent with modern Astronomy.

7.  The Ocean

The Quran uses imagery to covey its deep meanings, here it describes the state of the unbelievers as:

{Darkness out in a deep ocean which is covered by waves, above which are waves, above which are clouds, layers of darkness, one upon the other.  When one puts out his hand [therein], he can hardly see it.  Those God gives no light to, they have no light.} (Quran 24:40)

It is commonly thought that waves only occur on the surface of the ocean.  However oceanographers have discovered that there are internal waves that take place below the surface of the ocean.  These waves are invisible to the human eye, and can only be detected by specialist equipment[6].

The Quran mentions darkness in a deep ocean above which are waves, above which are waves, then clouds above that.  This description is not only remarkable because it describes the internal waves in the ocean, but also because it describes darkness deep in the ocean.

A human being can dive no more than 70 metres without breathing equipment.  Light is present at that depth, but if we go down 1000 metres it is completely dark[7].  1400 years ago there were no submarines or specialist equipment to discover internal waves or the darkness deep inside the oceans.

8.  Lying and Movement

There was a cruel oppressive tribal leader named Abu Jahl who lived during the time of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). God revealed a verse of the Quran to warn him:

{No Indeed! If he does not stop, We will seize him by the forehead, his lying, sinful forehead.} (Quran 96:15-16)

God does not call this person a liar, but calls his forehead (the front part of the brain) ‘lying’ and ‘sinful’, and warns him to stop.

This verse is significant for two reasons.  The first is that the front part of our brain is responsible for voluntary movement[8]. This is known as the frontal lobe.

The-Truth-is-From-Your-Lord-Surat-al-Baqarah-Quran-2-147-Quran-2-147-A book titled ‘Essentials of Anatomy and Physiology’ which includes the results of research on the functions of this area states: The motivation and the foresight to plan and initiate movements occur in the anterior portion of the frontal lobes, the prefrontal area[9].  The part of the brain that is responsible for movement is said to be seized if the man does not stop.

Secondly, numerous studies have shown that this same region (frontal lobe) is responsible for the lying function of the brain[10].  One such study at the University of Pennsylvania in which volunteers were asked questions during a computerized interrogation, it was found that when the volunteers were lying there was significantly increased activity in the prefrontal and premotor cortices (frontal lobe region)[11].

The front part of the brain is responsible for movement and lying.  The Quran links movement and lying to this area.  These functions of the frontal lobe were discovered with medical imaging equipment which was developed in the 20th century.

9.  Pain Receptors

For a long time it was thought that the sense of feeling and pain was dependent on the brain.  However it has been discovered that there are pain receptors present in the skin[12].  Without these pain receptors, a person would not be able to feel pain.

Consider the following verse on pain:

{We shall send those who reject Our revelations to the (Hell) Fire.  When their skins have been burned away, We shall replace them with new ones so that they may continue to feel the pain: God is Almighty, All-Wise.} (Quran 4:56)

God tells the people who reject his message that when they are in Hell and their skins are burnt off (so they can’t feel any pain), he will give them new skins so that they continue to feel the pain.

The Quran makes it clear that pain is dependent upon on the skin.  The discovery of pain receptors in the skin is a fairly recent discovery for Biology.

Conclusion

These are just some of the many facts found in the Quran.  It is important to note that the Quran is not a book of science, but that it is consistent with science.  To claim that scientific facts in the Quran are due to coincidence would be irrational.  The best explanation is that God revealed this knowledge to the Prophet Muhammad.

Just like the Quran contains knowledge about the natural world, it also contains information about the inner dimensions of our souls.  It relates to our feelings, wants and needs.  The Quran informs us that we have a purpose in life, and that following God’s guidance will lead us to inner peace in this life, and Paradise in the hereafter.  And that rejection of his message will lead to depression in this life and Hellfire after death.

{We shall show them Our signs in the Universe and within themselves, until it becomes clear to them that this is the Truth.  Is it not enough that your Lord is the witness of all things?} (Quran 41:53)

Health Benefits of Okra (Lady’s Finger)

The mucilaginous content in okra sets it apart
from other vegetables for its extraordinary benefits.

 

 

Description

Okra is also known as “lady’s finger” in some parts of Asia. And various other names in other parts of the world. The plant is cultivated in tropical, subtropical and warm temperate regions around the world.

Okra is an edible pea pod and although can be eaten raw, I’ve never acquired the raw taste. You can lightly blanch, steam or give it a quick stir-fry to reduce the “green” taste.

Use when it’s tender, as it gets very fibrous when it’s older. In the okra pods, the white soft seeds (edible) are arranged in 5 to 10 vertical columns, giving it the angled appearance on the outside.

 

Nutritional Benefits

Okra is very low in calories and dense with nutrients. It is high in fiber, vitamin A, C, and folate content.

It is also a good source of the B vitamins, vitamin K, calcium, potassium, iron, zinc, and traces of magnesium and manganese.

Okra is one of those few vegetables which have the highest content of phytonutrients and antioxidants such as beta-carotene, xanthin and lutein.

RECIPE:Needed:-2 fresh “Bindi”okras 
Preparation: Cut the heads and tails and then put 2 to 3 pieces in a glass of water. Leave them overnight, and in the morning, half an hour before your breakfast, drink the whole glass.Do not forget to share this healthy and beneficial drink with all your friends!

Health Benefits

Okra is one of the best medicinal vegetable although it is not everyone’s favorite. You may like to try it if you knew about its immense health benefits:

Anemia:  Helps red blood cells production and prevent anemia.

Anti-Cancer:  The high antioxidants in okra helps protect the immune system against harmful free radicals and prevent mutation of cells.

Asthma:  The high antioxidants and vitamin C content make okra useful for reducing asthmatic attacks.

Bone Strength:  Folate in okra builds strong bones and density, preventing osteoporosis.

Cholesterol:  The soluble fiber helps to lower serum cholesterol, thus also reducing atherosclerosis and the risk of heart diseases.

Constipation:  The rich fiber and mucilaginous (slimy) content in okra pods help increase bulk, bind to toxins and ensure easy bowel movements with its natural laxative properties. Regularly eating okra also reduces the risk of colon cancer.

Diabetes:  It has insulin-like properties that help to reduce blood sugar level.

Gut flora:  The fiber helps improve the population of beneficial bacteria in the gut.

Immune Booster:  The high antioxidants and vitamin C content make okra a good immune booster food that reduce your catching the cough and cold.

Peptic Ulcers: The mucilaginous content provides a temporary coating to the digestive tract and stomach lining while healing the ulcers.

Pregnancy:  The rich folate content in okra can help decrease the incidence of neural tube defects in babies.

Skin Health:  With good bowel movements, skin health will improve. Helps reduce acne, psoriasis and other skin conditions.

Vision Health: Okra contains beta-carotenes (precursor of vitamin A), xanthin and lutein, all antioxidant properties that are helpful for vision health, preventing eye problems like cataract and glaucoma.

 

Consumption Tips

Choose smaller-sized okra over the big ones.  The feel should be crisp and firm to be sure they are tender and not overly fibrous. Avoid those which color does not look fresh and are soft.

As with most vegetables, okra may be subject to insecticide/pesticides. Buy organic if possible. If not, soak okra in water with apple cider vinegar and seasalt for about 10 minutes, then rinse thoroughly.

Cut off the tops and cut okra into smaller pieces of 2-3 inches if desired. Lightly blanch, steam or quickly stir-fry to reduce the mucilage and the “green taste”. It can be added into your salad, or dipped into your home-made chilli sauce, or eat it just on its own.

Okra cannot be juiced due to its very fibrous texture and mucilaginous (slimy) content.

Caution

Like most vegetables, okra has a small amount of oxalic acid and does not generally bother. Avoid okra if you have a history of kidney stones

8 signs that you are not drinking enough water

Water is an important for us to survive as it
keeps the inner workings of our body in top
shape. Water keeps us hydrated only in its
pure form.
Water adjusts the body’s temperature and
assists in digestion. Not only that, but it
assists in removing toxins from the body
and also makes necessary body fluids. The
chemical reactions that support life take
place in a water medium, with water being
an important reactant or product of these
reactions.
So if you don’t drink enough water, it can
lead to serious complications. Remember
coffee, tea, juice and energy drinks do not
count as fluid requirements of the body. In
fact, coffee and energy drinks are high in
caffeine, which dehydrates the body.
Though your body can tell when you need
water, here are some signs that you do not
drink enough water in a day.
1. Frequency of urination
On an average, a health person urinates 6-7
times a day. This number varies from
person to person as some drink more water
than others.
But if you tend to urinate less than 2-3
times in a day and have not urinated in
several hours, this might be an indication of
you not drinking enough amount of water.
Not drinking enough water, may cause
difficulties for your kidneys to filter out
impurities efficiently.
Hence drink enough amount of water per
day, for your body requires it to function
properly
2. Dry Skin
Even your skin requires water as it keeps
the skin smooth and shiny. A healthy skin is
always hydrated. A hydrated skin will be soft
to touch and also will not be dry.
A dry skin is an indicator of dehydration and
skin devoid of water. Another indicator is
your skin still is dry even after you using
ample amount of lotion or balms to keep it
wet. Try and drink few glasses of water
every hour in a day. This will keep your skin
healthy and wonderfully smooth and soft.
3. Headaches
You will know when your headaches occur
due to dehydration when they lack the
common characteristics associated with a
normal headache. But you can identify this
type of headache if it gets aggravated with
movement.
When you move up and down stairs, bend
down to pick up something or move to fast,
the pain worsens. This kind of headache is
sign that your body is dehydrated and it
requires water. This may have happened
when you have sweated a lot, but have
ignored to drink any fluids.
Immediately drink some fluids slowly and
take it a bit easy.
4. Dry Mouth

image

Dry mouth is mostly caused by decrease of
saliva build up in the mouth. Constant
presence of dry mouth can cause permanent
throat and mouth disorders.
Dry mouth can be caused due to less
presence of water in the body or by intake
of medicines that may cause less production
of saliva in the mouth. If you constantly
suffer from dry mouth, keep a bottle of
water with you can keep drinking water at
regular periods of time.
5. Color of the urine
One major sign of dehydration is change in
the color of your urine. If you are well
hydrated, the color of your urine will be
clear, but if you are suffering from
dehydration, you will notice significant
change in the color of the urine.

image

And if the color of urine keeps getting
darker, it means your body requires
immediate supply of water. As you can see
in the image below, there are different
colors of urine and the brown color means
that you are dehydrated. But beware of
drinking too much water too fast, as it may
make you sick. Drink water slowly so that
body gradually replenishes water in the
required organs.
6. Hunger
When you are feeling hungry suddenly even
after you have eaten, it may not be your
body craving for that snack, it could be that
you are dehydrated.
Sometimes the body mistakes thirst for
hunger. So before you go for that tasty
snack, try and take a drink of water. If it
satisfies your hunger, it was not really a
hunger pang, just your body asking for
water.
7. Dizziness
Sometimes body loses so much fluid, that
you may sometimes experience lightness in
your head. Fluid build up in your inner ear
can cause dizziness, despite dehydration.
Try drinking a glass of water after you
experience some balance. This condition is
very common among athletes who stay in
the sun for long.
8. Bonus: Symptoms of
Chronic dehydration
There are some other symptoms of
dehydration, which are form of more chronic
dehydration. These symptoms are often
overlooked for the more visible and far more
experienced form of dehydration.
These symptoms are:
Urinary Tract Infections
Premature ageing
Confusion/ Anxiety
High Cholesterol
Constipation or heart burn

Signs Your Body Is Too Acidic And Here’s What To Do To Correct It

Acidic bodies are unhealthy bodies since when our organism is acidic; it develops an unwanted and unhealthy surrounding with an abundance of bacteria, yeast, and illnesses.

image

Furthermore, when the body is excessively acidic, it takes over the minerals from vital organs and bones in order to neutralize the acid and remove it from the body. Hence, the mineral reserves in the body such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, andsodium can severely decrease and provoke a damage which can remain unnoticed for years and years until it reaches unhealthy levels, thus causing acidosis. A lot of people consume foods which form acid such as grains, dairy, meat, and sugar. Moreover, because our body generates acidic waste products from the metabolism, these waste products have to be neutralized or expelled in some way. Therefore, we have to supply our bodies with more alkaline foods so that the constant acid generation can be neutralized. This can cause:
Immune deficiency Cavity and inflamed, sensitive gums Sciatica, lumbago, stiff neck Respiratory problems, coughing, shortness of breath Yeast fungal over growth Chronic fatigue Low energy Cardiovascular problems-arrhythmias, increased heart rate Constriction of blood vessels and oxygen reduction Diabetes, obesity, weight gain Bladder and kidney infections Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea Premature aging
Accelerated free radical damage
Headaches, sleepiness, confusion
Osteoporosis, hip fractures, bone spurs Allergies, acne Joint and muscle ache, lactic acid buildup
Does not the body adjust the pH on its own?Yes, but with a price. The normal pH for all fluids and tissues in the body, except the stomach, is alkaline. All the body systems, except the blood, have a wide pH range so they can shift in order to maintain the blood pH which has to be kept at a very narrow margin of 7.35 to 7.45. For example, if the body systems become excessively acidic, the blood will take alkaline forming elements from the digestive enzyme system of the small intestine which creates a less than optimal surrounding for a proper digestion. Hence, self adjustment of the pH involves other systems inside thus leading to additional health problems.Determine your pH
This is a crucial test since it allows you to have a numeric representation of the acidification level in the body. A healthy, average pH will range from 6.75 to7.25. The optimal range is7.36.Taste can determine alkaline or acidic foods
A lot of people think that lemons are acidic, but they are actually an alkaline forming food. During digestions, the acids oxidize into carbon dioxide and water so theydo not create an acidic condition in the system. Furthermore, potassium, calcium, sodium, magnesium and iron are the main alkalizing minerals. Therefore, foods rich in these minerals are alkaline forming foods. Actually, most foods have both alkaline and acidic minerals inside them. If the alkaline minerals have
higher concentration in some food, then that food
is considered to be alkaline, and vice versa.Our bodies have limits
The body knows how much it can compensate for acid misbalance. Therefore, food intake has a critical role in maintenance of the acid-alkaline balance. What’s more, numerous diseases are a result of the body’s attempts to rebalance its inner surroundings. Mainly, if someone’s nutrition is rich in acid forming foods, such as meat, grain, dairy products, and sugar, the body automatically becomes more acidic. On the other hand, if you eat a lot of alkaline foods like fruits, vegetables, and sea vegetables, the body can become excessively alkaline. So, balance is crucial.Body reaction to certain foods
You have to realize that the way your body responds to specific foods depends on your dominant constitutional type. Furthermore, if your dominant type is oxidative, fruits and vegetables move the body towards the acidic side, whereas proteins make your body more alkaline. On the other hand, if you are more dominant to the autonomic system, the proteins cause excessive acidity in your body, and fruits and vegetables make the body a more alkaline surrounding.How can the alkalinity be bettered?
-Make regular pH checkups.-Consume high amounts of water (alkaline water is also a good choice)-Do not consume acidic foods-Eat a large green salad instead of traditional lunch
-Use lettuce leaves and collard greens as wraps-Avoid consuming processed foods
-Eliminate soda, sugar, and coffee and replace them with tea, herbal coffee, and green drinks.
-Consume coconut or almond milk instead of dairy products
-Drink more green juices and smoothies
Nutrition is important!
Although the improvement of the pH may require a lot of effort,the benefits are numerous! Moreover, you will be a lot more energetic and vibrant and your overall well being will improve. Without doubt, our way of nutrition directly affects our overall health.Founder of the renowned Hippocrates Health Institute,once said that the food we consume is either the safest and most potent form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.

Adding a banana to your daily diet has an array of benefits for your body. Bananas help you reach your weight-loss goals, keep your bowels healthy, provide nutrients that regulate heart rhythm and have vitamin compounds for eye health.Here are a five benefits that you can avail by just having one banana a day

image

1.Weight Loss If you are looking for foods to fit into your weight-loss diet, bananas make a perfect fit. Bananas are naturally sweet and can help curb your sweet tooth if you get that afternoon sugar craving.
A 6-inch banana has a minimal 90 calories, about one-fourth of the calories you would get from a chocolate candy bar. If you have a banana before lunch, you’ll be less likely to overeat when your food comes to the table.
2. Regular bowels Enjoying a banana each day helps in keeping you regular. One 6-inch banana has more than 2.5 grams of total fiber, about half of which are insoluble. As insoluble fiber travels through your digestive tract, it sweeps up waste and helps push it out. You’ll have more regular bowel movements that are soft and easy to pass.
3. Normal Heart FunctionHaving a banana at breakfast every day adds a nutrient to your body to support normal heart function. Bananas are rich in a mineral electrolyte called potassium which is good for keeping heart beat regular. In cases of severe potassium deficiency; your heart rhythm may become irregular, which can be deadly. According to a study by the Linus Pauling Institute,you need 4,700 milligrams of potassium on a daily basis. Bananas provide more than 360 milligrams per 6-inch piece of fruit.
4.Eye Health Adding a banana to your diet also helps keep your eyes healthy. Bananas have a small amount of vitamin A, a fat-soluble vitamin that is vital for protecting your eyes and normal vision. One 6-inch banana has nearly 10 micrograms of vitamin A. Bananas also contain alpha-carotene and beta-carotene, which convert to vitamin A to further keep your eyes healthy.
5. Skin health Bananas are also good for skin. They  nourish and revitalize dry skin as well as smoothen rough and aging skin. If you have acne-prone oily skin, you can use it topically for oil control and to reduce further breakouts.
