Introduction Quran
One thing which surprises non-Muslims who are looking at the book very closely is that the Qur'an does not appear to be what they expected . What they assume is that they have an old book which came fourteen centuries ago from the Arabian desert , and hope that the book should look something like this - an old book from the desert.
And then discover they do not like what they expected at all. Also, one of the first things that some people assume that is because it is an old book which comes from the desert , it should talk about the desert. Well, the Qur'an speaks of the desert - some of its imagery describes the desert , but also talks about the sea - what it is to be in a storm at sea.
merchant marine
A few years ago , the story came to us in Toronto about a man who was in the merchant marine and made ​​his living on the sea. A Muslim gave him a translation of the Qur'an to read. The merchant marine knew nothing about the history of Islam but was interested to read the Koran. When he finished reading , he returned to the Muslim and asked, "This Muhammad , was a sailor ? " He was impressed by the accuracy of the Qur'an describes a storm on a Wednesday when he said : " No as a matter of fact, Muhammad lived in desert " , which was enough for him embraced  Islam on the spot ..

He was so impressed by the description of the Quran, as it had been in a storm at sea, and he knew that whoever had written that description had also been in a storm at sea. description
"... A wave, a wave , but clouds " (Quran 24:40 )
... Was not what someone imagining a storm at sea to be like would have written , but it was written by someone who knew what a storm on the sea was like . This is an example of how the Qur'an is not tied to a particular place and time. Certainly , the scientific ideas expressed in them do not seem to originate from the desert fourteen centuries ago .
The smallest thing
Many centuries before the onset of the prophecy of Muhammad , was a known advanced by the Greek philosopher Democritus theory of atomism . He and the people who came after him assumed that matter consists of tiny indivisible and indestructible particles called atoms. The Arabs also used to treat the same concept , in fact , the Arabic word dharrah commonly called the smallest particle known to man . Now, modern science has discovered that this smallest unit of matter (eg , the atom , which has all the same features as its element ) can be split into its components.

This is a new idea , a development of the last century , however , strangely enough, this information had already been documented in the Quran 34:3 which says:
" He [ie , God ] is aware of an atom's weight in the heavens and on earth and even anything smaller than that ... "
Undoubtedly , fourteen centuries ago that statement would have looked unusual , even to an Arab. For him, dharrah was the smallest thing there was. In fact, this is proof that the Qur'an is not exceeded.
Another example of what one might expect to find in an "old book" that touches on the subject of health or medicine is outdated remedies or cures. Prophet, peace and blessings of God be upon him , gave him advice about health and hygiene, as found in their prophetic traditions , and even today , this board is compelling and expertise in the field of medicine.
The Quran is a divine revelation and therefore the prophetic traditions .
The Qur'an emphasizes some of the remedies to the prophetic traditions , unlike medical journals today , there is no information that is outdated in the Qur'an and the prophetic traditions .. In particular, the Qur'an mentions an element that can be used as a treatment , it is not disputed by anyone. It states that in honey there is healing. And by the way , I do not think there is anyone who says otherwise !
