Atoms are divisible.

Iron's atomic number is 26. It turned out that the gematrical value of word Iron in Arabic "حديد" is 26.

Naturally occurring iron consists of four stable isotopes 54Fe, 56Fe, 57Fe and 58Fe. One of them, 57, has the same number of chapter "Iron" in the Quran.

[Quran 57.25] ... and We sent down Iron, in it great might...

Prior to the Quran philosophers thought that the atom was the smallest indivisible component of matter. However today we know that this is false. Atoms are composed of electrons, neutrons and protons. And lately it turned out that those neutrons and protons are made of quarks... However 1400 years ago the Quran contradicted the common knowledge of the time. It stated that the atom is not the smallest part.

[Quran 6.95] It is Allah Who splits the grains and the nuclei. He brings the living from the dead, and He brings the dead from the living. Such is Allah. So how could you deviate?

Nucleus In Arabic means "Nawat نواة". Its plural nuclei in Arabic is "nawa نَّوَىٰ". So the Quran says that God splits the nucleus. This means that the atom is not the smallest particle.

 [Quran 10:61] Whatever you may be doing, and whatever portion you may be reciting from the Quran, and whatever deed you may be doing, We [Allah] do witness when you are doing it. And nothing is hidden from your Lord (so much as) the weight of an atom on Earth nor in heaven, not less than that nor more but is (written) in a clear record (on the Preserved Tablet).

How could an illiterate man who lived 1400 years ago have known that the atom is not the smallest component of matter?

(The Bible says that stars burn like lamps, that is, it is a chemical reaction Revelation 8:10. However in reality there is no such thing as burning, instead atoms fuse inside stars by gravity, a nuclear reaction not a chemical one).
