160 Miracles and Mysteries of the Quran – (English) – (PB)
All praises and thanks are due to Allah, the only One, the Almighty, the All-Knowing, the Most Forgiving, the Most Merciful. There is no strength to do good, nor power to avoid evil except through His Grace and Blessings. He is my only Lord. He is sufficient for me in all of my affairs in this world and the world hereafter. I depend entirely upon His Mercy, and seek His forgiveness for all of my shortcomings and sins.
Allah’s peace and blessings be upon His servant, the blessed Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), the last of messengers, the seal of the chain of prophets, the mercy for humankind, the illuminating light, the most kind and merciful to the believers, and my intercessor on the Day of Judgment. Allah’s peace and blessings also be upon his noble family members, his Companions and all those who follow him until the Day of Judgment.
The following pages present a few evident miracles and mysteries of the Qur’an. It is very important for the readers to understand that these pages do not give a new interpretation of the Qur’an. I and the authors of the books given in the bibliography perceive a few vases of the Qur’an as the evident miracles of the Qur’an. Though the miracles of the Qur’an are countless, this compendium discusses only the evidences that these authors have presented in support of the miraculous nature of these verses. ‘I have tried my best not to add my personal opinion to the evidences presented by the authors of the books.
This book, as a whole or partially, was reviewed by a panel of name persons; five born Muslims, of whom three are medical doctors, three new Muslims, and one non-Muslim. Whereas the medical doctors unanimously agreed to the miraculous nature of the verses presented under the chapters of discoveries in “”Human Beings”” and “”Embryology””, the remaining reviewers had varied opinions. It was noted that a certain reviewer did not accept the explanation of a verse as the evidence for its miraculous nature, but other reviewer accepted the same as an evident miracle of the Qur’an. Accordingly, a reader may not agree with the evidences of all the miracles presented in this book. The reader should therefore concentrate on the evidences that appeal to him/her as the evident miracles of the Qur’an, and seek his/her guidance and inspirations from those specific verses.
Dr. Angela Williams, one of my students from the Sunday Islamic school in Houston, worked hand in hand with me and brought this work to its final shape. I am extremely thankful to Allah to state that Dr. Williams took Shahadah (reverted to Islam) the day she completed the review of this book.
I had earlier published a book entitled “”130 evident miracles of the Quran””. It was first printed ‘m New York in 1998. Later it was also printed in S. Arabia, India and Pakistan. This book is a modified vision of the previous book. Those who have read the previous book, will find a few additions and modifications.
I pray that Allah, the Most Compassionate, ‘the Most merciful accepts this humble work and makes it a means for receiving His Blessings and Forgiveness. I also pray that Allah, the Exalted makes this work as a means for guidance, and blessings for the readers as well. Ameen!
