Nocturnal Animals

Zoology - Easy

Active at night.

1400 years ago people thought that all animals rest at night. However today we know that this is false, some animals are active during the night and rest during the day.


Nocturnality is an animal behavior characterized by being active during the night and sleeping during the day. The common adjective is "nocturnal", versus diurnal meaning the opposite.

Wikipedia, Nocturnality, 2019.

Nocturnal animals are active at night and rest at day. This was known recently, however 1400 years ago the Quran said that there are creatures that rest at night as well as creatures that rest at day:

Quran 6:13

To Him belongs whatever rests in the night and the day. He is the Hearing, the Knowing.

١٣ وَلَهُ مَا سَكَنَ فِي اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ ۚ وَهُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ

Creatures that rest in the day means they are active at night. No mistakes in the Quran.

How could an illiterate man who lived 1400 years ago have known about nocturnal animals?

The Quran 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.
