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 verb “inzal” refers to the
fact that a creation in the world has taken place following an event
exterior to 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
The Quran shows other mathematical miracles by pointing out
iron’s atomic number, 26, in different ways.
1. In the Quran, there is a mathematical value for every letter. (We
will give all the letters and their numerical values in the part on 19.)
The mathematical value for the word iron (hadid) is 26.
Ha = 8
Dal = 4
Ya = 10
Dal = 4
Total = 26
2. The verse that refers to iron is the 25th verse in the sura Hadid.
If we count Basmalah, then that number is 26.
3. The name God mentioned in this sura for the 26th time is in the
same verse. The atomic number of an element is the main characteristic of that element and is determined by the number of its protons,
which are the building blocks of that element. Iron’s atomic number
is 26 because of its 26 protons. From the beginning of the sura Iron
(Hadid) till the end of the verse of that sura that alludes to iron, the
word God is used 26 times.
The word =Mathematical value of the word
How many times is the word
“God” used from the beginning of the sura until the end
of the 25th verse, which is the
only verse wherein the properties of iron are mentioned?=26
Iron’s atomic number=26
