Prophecy foretold in the Qur’ân
have been materialized, one by one, with the march of history. They are of such
nature, to be impossible to materialize, unless their source was the All-Knowing
Creator of this Universe: Allâh.
§ Verily We, it is We Who have sent down the Dhikr (i.e. the Qur’ân), and surely We will guard it (from corruption). [15/9]
In spite of the fact that it was first revealed in a community that was
largely illiterate, and in the absence of modern documentation facilities, not a
single word or letter has been changed or modified ever since. In contrast to
other scriptures, Qur’ân
whether recited in the seventh or in the twentieth centuries; whether by Arabs
in the Middle East or by Turks, Indonesians, Nigerians or Americans.
Prophecy II. The Qur’ân challenges everybody, anywhere, anytime to compose or imitate such a unique perfect literary style, superb language, most precise expression; or deep impact on mind, soul and senses:
§ Or they say, “He (Prophet Muhammad) forged it (the Qur’ân)”. Say, “Bring you then ten forged Sûras (chapters) like unto it, and call whomsoever you can, other than Allâh (to your help)!, if you speak the truth”. [11/13]
§ Or they say, “He (the Prophet) has forged it (The Qur’ân)? Say, “Bring you a Sûrah (chapter) like unto it and call whomsoever you can besides Allâh, if you are truthful. [10/38]
§ And if you are in doubt concerning that which We have sent down (i.e. the Qur’ân) to Our slave (Muhammad), then produce a Sûrah (chapter) of the like thereof and call your witnesses (supporters, helpers) besides Allâh, if you are truthful. [2/23]
if the mankind and Jinn were together to produce the like of this Qur’ân,
they could not produce the like thereof, even if they helped one another.
Prophecy III. Humanity will, gradually come to grasp the soundness and scientific significance of several Qur’anic statements, beyond what was known at the time of revelation, as emphasized in the following verses:
§ We will show them Our Signs in the universe, and in their own selves, until it becomes manifest to them that this (the Qur’ân) is the truth. [41/53]
§ Nay, they have belied the knowledge whereof they could not comprehend and what has not yet been fulfilled. [10/39]
§ And you shall certainly know the truth of it after a while. [38/88]
§ He will show you His Âyât (signs) so that you shall recognize them. [27/93]
§ For every news there is a reality and you shall come to know
this has gradually come true is the context of this work (Sections 1-20).
That this has gradually come true is the context of this work (Sections 1-20).
Prophecy IV. The conquest of Mecca was prophesied in the Qur’ân:
§ Verily He who has given you (O Muhammad) the Qur’ân (i.e. ordered you to act on its laws and to preach it to others) will surely bring you back to Maâd (a title of Mecca). [28/85]
§ Indeed Allâh shall fulfill the true vision which He showed to His messenger: In very truth, you shall enter Al-Masjid Al-Harâm (the Sacred Mosque in Mecca) if Allâh wills. [48/27]
These verses were revealed at a time when the new Muslim faith was at its lowest ebb, hardly surviving the deadly siege by all contemporary forces, in and outside the Arabian Peninsula. Nevertheless, all of this and more (indeed much more) came true.
Prophecy V. A few years before the death the Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him), Persia has given a massive defeat to the Romans, that was culminated by the conquest of Jerusalem in 614-615 A.C. The Qur’ân however has given a prophecy, against all odds at that time, that victory will swing back to the Romans, and that this should be within less than 10 years.
§ The Romans have been defeated, in the nearest land; and they, after their defeat, will be victorious within bid (three to nine) years. [30/2-4]
The surprise victory did occur, in a decisive battle in the year 622 A.C., and the Romans struck into the heart of Persia in the year 624 A.C. This gave a further confirmation to the truth of the Qur’ân
