Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,
I would like to share with you an ayat(verse) in the Quran that talks about how a person who moves up in altitude his/her chest contracts, in which modern science has proven after the revelation
In the Quran it states, “So whoever Allah wants to guide – He expands his breast to [contain] Islam; and whoever He wants to misguide – He makes his breast tight and constricted as though he were climbing into the sky. Thus does Allah place defilement upon those who do not believe.” (Surah An’am 6:125).
Mammalian animals, such as human beings, need oxygen to live. Science has also shown how atmospheric pressure dictates the amount of oxygen human beings can intake. As human beings ascend up a mountain, or go up in altitude, the atmospheric pressure declines as well as the amount of oxygen that gets entered into your system due to the thinning of air. As the oxygen content declines we have trouble breathing because our chests contract against our lungs. This is why people who climb mountains will sometimes bring oxygen tanks to help them breathe. There is a link below that explains the science in more detail.
Now, back to the Quran, how can someone who got revelation 1400 years ago know about this scientific concept that was only discovered afterwards? It is not mere coincidence if scientific concepts of the Quran keep occurring that was not possible 1400 years ago. The Quran is the true incorruptible word of God.
Inshal’Allah we all turn back to Allah(SWT) and ask for guidance, protection, forgiveness, and to enter us in Jannah-al-Firdaus.
