Honey is a sweet and viscous fluid produced by honeybees from the nectar of flowers. “The definition of honey stipulates a pure product that does not allow for the addition of any other substance. This includes, but is not limited to, water or other sweeteners,” according to the United States National Honey Board 2003 and other nations’ food regulations. Honey is significantly sweeter than table sugar and has attractive chemical properties for baking. Honey has a distinctive flavor which leads some people to prefer it over sugar and other sweeteners.

Inspired by the shirt of Yousof (Joseph), an Egyptian Muslim scientist, unprecedently, managed to manufacture an eye drop to treat the cataract. How?
Allah the Almighty describes Jacob:
“And he turned away from them, and said, ‘Ah, how great is my grief for Joseph.’ And his eyes turned white because of the sorrow that he chocked within him.” (12: 84) Read more »

Allah the Almighty speaks of Abu Jahl (an inveterate enemy of Islam, who used to insult prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and his followers) :
كلا لئن لم ينته لنسفعًا بالناصية * ناصية كاذبة خاطئة
“No Indeed; surely, if he gives not over, We shall seize him by the forelock, a lying, sinful forelock!”

The Messenger of Allaah, Muhammad sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam said: “The best amongst you are those who learn the Quran and teach it.” [Al-Bukhaari]
What is the Quran?
The Quran is the Book of Allaah, which He chose to be the Final of the Heavenly Books. He, the Merciful and Most High, revealed it to Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam as the source for the Last Religion and a guidance for mankind. Its revelation was a turning point for humanity; it was the power that changed the world, shifted the flow of history, saved and reformed humanity, so much so that the entire existence appeared as if it had been recreated anew.

It happened at an international inter-faith conference. The organizers decided to end the conference with readings from the scriptures of major religions, done by followers of other religions. As it happened, an Arab Christian read a passage from the Qur’an. He was a good reciter. Every one seemed to be moved by his heart-rending reading, including the reciter himself. Immediately afterward, prominent Muslim thinker and writer, Maulana Waheeduddin Khan, who narrated this story, asked him: “Do you think Qur’an is the Word of God?” In a moment of truth he said: “Yes.” But, then, he had second thoughts so he added: “But only for the Arabs.”
Actually not only the Qur’anic message keeps attracting people all over the world, its words also move people who may not know a word of Arabic language. Famous Egyptian reciter Qari Abdul Basit reportedly once accompanied then President Gamal Abdul Nasir to a meeting with the Soviet leaders. During a break in the meeting, Nasir asked him to recite the Qur’an before the top Soviet leaders. When he finished the recitation, Qari Abdul Basit saw four of them shedding tears. “We don’t know what it was,” they later explained. But there was some thing touching in those Words!

Night after night in Ramadan, the believers witness a unique spectacle at mosques around the world. They stand in special Taraveeh prayers in which the prayer leader will recite the entire Quran from memory. Those who have accomplished this extraordinary feat of memorizing all of the 6246 verses are not a handful of devotees but there are hundreds of thousands of them. Most, just like most Muslims in the world today, do not speak Arabic. Yet they have painstakingly learnt to pronounce each and every word of the Quran correctly. The phenomenon is not a result of some religious resurgence that would pass. From the very first day that the Quran was revealed, it was memorized. And the number of those who have memorized it has been increasing ever since. Memorization of Quran has been going on all through the centuries, all over the globe wherever Muslims are.
This article features just one part of the numerous Miracles of the Holy Quran. The Holy Quran consists of scientific miracles by highlighting certain scientific facts which were not discovered except fourteen centuries later. The Quran is full of miracles and it is a miracle by itself.
The 20th century saw a great many new discoveries regarding celestial phenomena in the universe. One of these entities, which has only recently been encountered, is the Black Hole. These are formed when a star which has consumed all its fuel collapses in on itself, eventually turning into a black hole with infinite density and zero volume and an immensely powerful magnetic field. We are unable to see black holes even with the most powerful telescope, because their gravitational pull is so strong that light is unable to escape from them. However, such a collapsed star can be perceived by means of the effect it has on the surrounding area. In Surat al-Waqi’a, Allah draws attention to this matter in this way, by swearing upon the position of stars:
And I swear by the stars’ positions – and that is a mighty oath if you only knew. (Quran, 56:75-76)

The Miracle of Qur’anic Eloquence and Style includes:
A – Expression: the eloquence of the Qur’an’s expression has two aspects: purity of language and impressiveness.
B – Meaning: the eloquence of the Qur’an as regards meaning is obvious in three aspects:
1. The meaning is clear from the word itself.
2. The meaning conforms to the word, it is neither more than it to cause disorder in the word nor less than it to cause disorder in meaning. That is obvious in the Arabs’ saying: “The killing stops killing” and what the Almighty Allah, subhanahu wa ta`ala, says:
“And there is [a saving of] life for you in Qisas [the law of Equality in punishment of murder]…” [Qur'an 2:179]
