Distance

Cubits, Kilometers, Miles.

1400 years ago people knew the cubit, a measure suitable for short distances. Long distance measure like kilometers and miles were not invented yet, however we found their equivalent in the Quran.

Cubits are mentioned in the Quran.

[Quran 69:32] Then in a chain which length is seventy cubits tie him up.

It turned-out that 70 cubits are equivalent to 32 meters, same number of the verse itself.

70 cubits is equivalent to 32 meters. The number of the verse is 32.

In another incident the number of verses to Iron in the Quran is the same number of kilometers to Iron on Earth. From the beginning of the Quran there is 5100 verses to the Iron verse in chapter Iron. It turned out that Iron on Earth is concentrated at its core 5100 km below the surface.

With a radius of almost 3,500 km (2,200 miles), Earth’s core is about the size of the entire planet Mars. About one-third of Earth’s mass is contained in the core, most of which is liquid iron alloyed with nickel and some lighter, cosmically abundant components (e.g., sulfur, oxygen, and, controversially, even hydrogen). Its liquid nature is revealed by the failure of shear-type seismic waves to penetrate the core. A small, central part of the core, however, below a depth of about 5,100 km (3,200 miles), is solid iron.

Number of verses to Iron in the Quran is the same number of kilometers to Iron on Earth.

In another incident the number of verses between Kaaba and Al-Aqsa Mosque is the same number of miles between them geographically.

[Quran 9:28] O you who believe! The polytheists are polluted, so let them not approach the Sacred Mosque after this year of theirs. And if you fear poverty, Allah will enrich you from His grace, if He wills. Allah is Aware and Wise.

 

[Quran 17:1] Glory to Him who journeyed His servant by night, from the Sacred Mosque, to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, whose precincts We have blessed, in order to show him of Our wonders. He is the Listener, the Beholder.

The verses that contain the Sacred Mosque (Kaaba) and Al-Aqsa Mosque are separated by 767 verses. It turned-out that geographically they separated by 767 miles.

Perspiration

Perspiration

Reduces body temperature.  

1400 years ago people knew that sweat helped the body to cool down, however nobody knew that dogs don’t sweat.

Perspiration, also known as sweating, is the production of fluids secreted by the sweat glands in the skin of mammals.
Two types of sweat glands can be found in humans: eccrine glands and apocrine glands. The eccrine sweat glands are distributed over much of the body.
In humans, sweating is primarily a means of thermoregulation, which is achieved by the water-rich secretion of the eccrine glands. Maximum sweat rates of an adult can be up to 2-4 liters per hour or 10-14 liters per day (10-15 g/min.m2), but is less in children prior to puberty. Evaporation of sweat from the skin surface has a cooling effect due to evaporative cooling. Hence, in hot weather, or when the individual’s muscles heat up due to exertion, more sweat is produced. Animals with few sweat glands, such as dogs, accomplish similar temperature regulation results by panting, which evaporates water from the moist lining of the oral cavity and pharynx.
Although sweating is found in a wide variety of mammals, relatively few (exceptions include humans and horses) produce large amounts of sweat in order to cool down.

Sweating and panting (breathing with short, quick breaths) helps humans to cool down. However dogs don’t have perspiration glands so they rely on panting.

Thermal imaging shows that dogs use evaporation from their tongues to lose the heat. This was known recently, however this was portrayed in the Quran 1400 years before it was discovered. The Quran says that those Quranic verses are like your skin, if you peal off those verses then you will have to cool off by panting like a dog.

[Quran 7:175-176] And relate to them the story of him to whom We delivered Our verses, but he pealed himself from them, so Satan went after him, and he became one of the perverts. Had We willed, We could have elevated him through them; but he clung to the ground, and followed his desires. His metaphor is that of a dog: if you burden it, it pants; and if you leave it alone, it pants. Such is the metaphor of the people who deny Our signs. So tell the tale, so that they may ponder.

In this verse the Quranic verses are like your skin, if you peal off those verses then you will have to cool off by panting like a dog. Today we know why, because dogs don’t perspire from their skin but instead they have to pant.
