For each a prophet there is evidences, Evidences that left his prophet as shining as rays of the sun, These are prophecies and physical signs, But our great Prophet Muhammad is endowed with more, He was not only supported by prophecies and miracles , But he was given unique ones, prime among these are Scientific verses that science is completely in agreement with, So glorious, convincing, free of errors is the last words of God.
Prophet Muhammad passes the Bible test
The Old Testament stipulates that a true prophet must give prophecies that come true, it says:
Prophet Muhammad’s hadiths are filled with prophecies that materialized in his time, shortly after his death and even today.( The Gulf War, the Economic blockade on Iraq that preceded the Gulf war, the moral decadence and AIDS, opening Egypt…etc)
The Holy Quran also gives prophecies that came true at the time of the prophet and there are some that we see them coming true in our age such as modern communication, the age of submarines and the conquer of the space.
An example of the prophecies that transpired at the time of the prophet and was the reason behind the reversion of many peoples into Islam is the triumph of the Romans over the Persians.
The Holy Quran says:
Please note that the words” few years”, in Arabic " Bda Sneen", that are found in most translations means in Arabic a period ranging from three to nine years.
Also the words "in the lowest place", in Arabic "Adna Al-Ard", according to Arabic dictionaries and Quran lexicon means" the lowest place."
So the Holy Quran tells us:
The Defeat of the Romans
The Holy Quran determines the lowest place on the face of the earth
The war to which the holy verses refer to actually took place in the Dead Sea basin, the war took place in a spot which is situated at the intersection point of the lands belonging to Syria, Palestine, and Jordan. At 399 meters below sea level, the Dead Sea is the "lowest" place on Earth's surface.
please note that classic expounders exegete the words according to their own culture and most Quran translations available on net follow the classic word- explanation.
The Dead Sea basin where Byzantium was defeated by Persians. Above is a satellite photograph of the region. The Lake of Lut region, which is the lowest region of the world, is 395 meter below the sea level.
Since at that time the geography of the planet earth wasn’t known, they choose to explain the Arabic word”Adna” as” a nearby land” which is correct but according to Arabic dictionaries the word” Adna” also means the lowest place which is most accurate meaning.
Also when the Arabic definite article” El/Al” added to the word “Ard”, it will means” Planet earth”
So according to Arabic dictionaries and Arabic Grammar the word “Adna” should be explained as the lowest place in the earth.
".....When we investigated the lowest part of the earth, we found that it was exactly the same spot that witnessed the battle in which the Romans were defeated. When we informed Professor Palmer about this, he contested saying that there were many other areas, which are lower than the one referred to in the Qur'anic verse. He gave examples and names of other areas in Europe and in the United States. We assured him that our information was verified and correct. He had with him a topographical globe that showed elevations and depressions.
Dead Sea Facts:
On the shore of the historic Dead Sea, at the lowest spot on earth, stands the unique 5 star Mövenpick Resort & Spa. The resort`s close-to-nature, traditional stone village ambience enhances a world of enchantment.
At 400 meters (1300 ft.) below sea level, it is the lowest spot on earth. Part of the 6000km Great African Rift Valley. 55km long by 17.5km. at its widest point, with a depth of up to 400m., this inland sea is flanked by the Judean Hills to the west and by the Mountains of Moab in Jordan to the east. Although fed by rivers in Israel and Jordan, as well as springs and winter floods, no water flows out of the Dead Sea. Instead it evaporates in the high temperatures, twice the amount of water entering, leaving one of the world's greatest concentrations of minerals, which supplies vast amounts of raw chemicals for industry, agriculture and medicine; these are extracted, processed and exported all over the world by the Dead Sea Works at Sedom.
The Kinneret and Golan:
Lake Kinneret is so-called because it is shaped like a harp, the name Kinneret originates from the word ‘kinnor’ which means harp. The lake is also known on modern maps as Lake Galilee or Lake Tiberius. The name Galilee derives from where it is located.
The Kinneret supplies more than 30% of Israel's fresh water. It is the lowest fresh water lake in the world! It is a beautiful lake and Israel’s largest reservoir. In the hot summer you can see thousands of people enjoying themselves on the Kinneret. During the winter time, people like to try the hot springs in the town of Tiberias.
Lake Kinneret is Israel's largest fresh water lake, approximately 53 kilometers (33 miles) in circumference, about 21km (13 miles) long and 13km (8 miles) wide. At 213 meters below sea level, it is the lowest fresh water lake on Earth and the second lowest point in the world after the Dead Sea. It is not a sea by normal definition; it is called a sea due to tradition. Lake Kinneret provides approximately 50% of the drinking water and 25% of all water for , so the water quality, and hence, the water circulation, is of the utmost importance.
So long before science could detect the lowest place on the face of the earth, the Holy Quran mentioned it.
How could Muhammad knew this important fact though he didn't have satellites like our most sophisticated ones unless he was truly a prophet from God.
