Flight

Man reached the sky.

1400 years ago the highest altitude a man could reach was the height that he could jump. But the Quran foretold that man someday will reach the sky.

Quran 29:22
You cannot escape (Allah's might), on earth or in the sky; and you have no protector and no savior besides Allah.

٢٢ وَمَا أَنْتُمْ بِمُعْجِزِينَ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَلَا فِي السَّمَاءِ ۖ وَمَا لَكُمْ مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ مِنْ وَلِيٍّ وَلَا نَصِيرٍ

Man will reach the sky.

Quran 84:19
You will ride layer upon layer.

١٩ لَتَرْكَبُنَّ طَبَقًا عَنْ طَبَقٍ

"Tabak طبق" is a noun meaning "layer". From this came the myth of flying carpets; but today we know this is aircraft.


How could an illiterate man who lived 1400 years ago have known that man will reach the sky?


The Quran (Koran, the book of Islam) contains scientific knowledge that could not have been known 1400 years ago. It ranges from basic arithmetics to the most advanced topics in astrophysics. You are invited to go through those miracles and judge for yourself.
