Iron is beneficial to the eyesight - Mentioned in the Glorious Quran and confirmed by Science!

The sections of this article are:

1-  Allah Almighty's Divine Claims.
2-  The Scientific Proofs.
3-  Conclusion.
4- 
Rebuttals.

  

  

  

1-  Allah Almighty's Divine Claims:

The Noble Quran is filled with scientific statements and notions.  These are statements of Allah Almighty describing how He created things on earth and in the Universe.  What's most amazing is that all of these scientific statements and notions had been proven to be in perfect agreement with science and our modern-day scientific discoveries.  Allah Almighty made the Noble Quran be Prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) Everlasting Divine Miracle and proof for Prophethood.  The Holy Book certainly stood the test of time 1,500 years ago with Its Claims, Prophecies and Miraculous language eloquence, and it does again and again in our day today with Its overwhelming agreement with science and discoveries that were not known to man 1,500 years ago.

Allah Almighty Said: "We will soon show them Our signs in the Universe and inside their selves, until it will become quite clear to them that it is the truth. Is it not sufficient as regards your Lord that He is a witness over all things?  (The Noble Quran, 41:53)"

With this said, let us now examine the following facts from the Glorious Quran:

Noble Verse(s) 50:22
Arabic (from right to left):

50:22 لقد كنت في غفلة من هذا فكشفنا عنك غطاءك فبصرك اليوم حديد

Yusuf Ali:

[050:022] (It will be said:) "Thou wast heedless of this; now have We removed thy veil, and sharp is thy sight this Day!"

  

Noble Verse(s) 57:25
Arabic (from right to left):

57:25 لقد ارسلنا رسلنا بالبينات وانزلنا معهم الكتاب والميزان ليقوم الناس بالقسط وانزلنا الحديد فيه باس شديد ومنافع للناس وليعلم الله من ينصره ورسله بالغيب ان الله قوي عزيز

Yusuf Ali:

[057:025] We sent aforetime our apostles with Clear Signs and sent down with them the Book and the Balance (of Right and Wrong), that men may stand forth in justice; and We sent down Iron, in which is (material for) mighty war, as well as many benefits for mankind, that God may test who it is that will help, Unseen, Him and His apostles: For God is Full of Strength, Exalted in Might (and able to enforce His Will).

Notice the Arabic word حديد in both Noble Verses, above.  In Noble Verse 50:22, it was translated as "sharp", and in Noble Verse 57:25, it was translated as "Iron".  The literal translation for the metal iron in Arabic is indeed حديد (hadeed) [1].  Throughout the Glorious Quran, this word was used for both the metal iron and for sharpness.  See Noble Verses 17:50 (a Scientific Miracle), 18:96 (a Scientific Miracle), 22:21, 34:10 for more details.  But could be there more to it than just that?  Why did Allah Almighty choose this word, حديد, to describe the vision of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him?  Is there something special about iron to the human-eyesight?  After all, Allah Almighty did Say that iron contains "....many benefits for mankind...." in Noble Verse 57:25, above.

    Article #3:

    "Iron Deficiency Anemia

    1. Overview and Causes

    Iron-deficiency anemia is the most common anemia caused by disorder of iron synthesis. It is caused by iron deficiency. TCM puts it under the category “deficiency of blood”, “shallowness” and “general edema with yellowish tinge of skin”. This disease is usually caused by any prolonged illness, or poor nutrition, from parasites or from repeated bleeding or weak function of digestion and absorption.

    2. Symptoms

    (a) low level of iron in the blood;
    (b) sallow or pale complexion;
    (c) very dizzy,
    blurred vision;
    (d) palpitation (noticeable and irregular heartbeat), drowsiness, fatigue, poor appetite, sallow hair; or
    (e) edema (swelling) of the face and feet, even bleeding and fevers."

    Anemia Symptoms

    There are a lot of signs that may indicate a person has anemia. Usually these symptoms not only point out that a person has anemia, it may also point out what kind of anemia a person may have. Here are some of the symptoms you may need to look out for:
    .......................

    Symptoms of sickle cell anemia in babies are jaundice, swelling of hands and feet, delay in body growth, eye problems." (Source)

      

    Article #6:

    "Different types of anemia have different causes and symptoms.

    Iron Deficiency Anemia: Iron deficiency is one of the most common causes of anemia, especially in women. In the U.S. alone, twenty million women suffer from iron deficiency anemia. Iron deficiency causes insufficient hemoglobin production which, in turn, causes anemia and anemia symptoms.

    Sickle Cell Anemia: Sickle cell anemia, or sickle cell disease, is one of the hereditary causes of anemia. Most often seen in people of African descent, sickle cell anemia is characterized by the production of rigid, sickle-shaped red blood cells. These abnormal sickle cells break down faster then normal red blood cells, resulting in a chronic shortage of red blood cells and anemia symptoms.
    Sickle cell anemia is a form of hemolytic anemia, which describes types of anemia caused by the rapid destruction of red blood cells.

    Pernicious Anemia: Certain types of anemia are referred to as megaloblastic, or vitamin deficiency anemia. Pernicious anemia is caused by an inability of the intestines to absorb sufficient amounts of vitamin B12, which is required in the production of red blood cells.
    Pernicious anemia symptoms include vision problems, memory loss, difficulty walking and numb hands and feet, as well as the more common anemia symptoms.
    Risk factors for pernicious anemia include a family history of pernicious anemia, Scandinavian or European ancestry or a history of autoimmune endocrine disorders.
    Vitamin B12 injections are the standard pernicious anemia treatment. Oral vitamin B12 supplements may also be used as pernicious anemia treatment, but they’re not as efficient as B12 injections."

    Article #7:

    "Hemoglobin C disease

    Hemoglobin C disease is a blood disorder passed down through families . It leads to a type of anemia , which causes red blood cells to break down earlier than normal . A deficit in iron, hemoglobin, red blood cells, or a combination of the three leads to less oxygen getting to body tissues (anemia). Not only did he have low red blood count and low hemoglobin (severe anemia), he also had small red blood cells.

    Overview
    Most people do not have symptoms . Occasionally , jaundice may occur . Some persons with this disease may develop gallstones that require treatment .

    Symptoms
    Usually no treatment is needed . Folic acid supplementation may help your body produce normal red blood cells and improve the symptoms of the anemia .

    Treatment
    Hemoglobin C is a problem with hemoglobin , the part of red blood cells that carry oxygen . Hemoglobin is a protein in your red blood cells that carries oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body. It is a type of hemoglobinopathy . The disease is caused by problem with a gene called beta globin . The disease most often occurs in African Americans . You are more likely to develop hemoglobin C disease if someone in your family has had it . Hopefully I won't have another problem, but my hemoglobin never goes above 12.

    Causes
    Physical examination reveals an enlarged spleen.Tests that may be done include : Complete blood countHemoglobin electrophoresisPeripheral smearSerum hemoglobin I know I have had this for awhile it was a very gradual process for me, I know my hemoglobin was 10 back in February when I had a hysterectomy I found that I had antibodies when they typed my blood

    Tests & diagnosis
    People with hemoglobin C disease can expect to lead a normal life . I saw my Dr. again today...my labs were all normal(except my hemoglobin was a little low).

    Prognosis
    Genetic counseling may be appropriate for high - risk couples who wish to have a baby . Since a baby I have had hemoglobin issues being very low.

    Prevention
    Complications include episodes of pain , hip problems ,
    vision problems , and gallbladder disease . followed by sinus tachycardia Chest pain, squeezing around heart area Joint pain Numbness in hands, face, feet Heavy right leg Cognitive impairment (mild) Severe headaches Vision disturbance (primarily in one eye) Severe shortness of breath Abnormal EKG Mysterious red rashes all over body Ringing in ears Enlarged right tonsil Chills Extreme dizziness/balance problems Stomach problems Low Hemoglobin/Anemia Low potassium level -Ryan

    Complications
    Call your health care provider if you have symptoms of hemoglobin C disease . When my hemoglobin came back a little to high a couple of times I even purchased a hand held hemoglobin machine and started checking it at home.

When you’re standing up and feeling dizzy it could be orthostatic hypotension which means your blood vessels aren’t compensating for your change in position (constricting when you stand up so you don’t lose blood flow to your brain).
    A history of anemia is also significant; iron deficiency decreases the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood, which explains dizziness. And now that you’re noticing bleeding, it could be that you don’t have enough clotting factors/platelets, so you’re blood isn’t going where it needs to go.
    To do: see your doctor and in the meantime increase your fluid intake, avoid aspirin, NSAIDs and tylenol, and continue taking your iron supplement. Try adding some iron-rich foods (almonds, garbanzo beans) to your diet, as well as foods rich in Vitamin K (cantelope and leafy dark green veggies).

    Iron Deficiency Meaning and how to deal with Iron Deficiency

    Author: johndebra

    Iron Deficiency

    Iron is of great importance in human nutrition. The adult human body contains between 3-4 g of iron, of which 60-70 percent is present in the blood (Hb iron) as circulating iron, and the rest (1 to 1.5 g) as storage iron. Each gram of hemoglobin contains about 3.34 mg of iron.

    There are two types of iron, haem-iron and non-haem iron. Haem iron is better absorbed than non-haem iron. Foods rich in haem-iron are liver, meat, poultry and fish. They are not only source of willingly obtainable iron but they also encourage the absorption of non-haem iron in plant foods eat at the same time.

    Iron is more often than not absorbed from duodenum and upper small intestine in the ferrous state, according to body needs.

    The rate of iron absorption is greater than before by many factors similar to iron reserves of the individual, the presence of inhibitors (e.g. phosphates) and promoters (e.g. ascorbic acid) of iron amalgamation and disorder of duodenum and jejunum.

    Iron absorption is greater when there is an improved demand for iron, as for example for the period of pregnancy.

    The absorbed iron is transported as plasma ferreting and stored in liver, spleen, bone marrow and kidney. While red cells are broken down, the liberated iron is reutilized in the creation of new red cells.

    The total every day iron loss of an adult is almost certainly 1 mg and about 2 mg in menstruating women. Major routes of iron loss are:

    * Through hemorrhages, that is wherever blood is lost, iron is lost, the causes of which may be physiological (e.g. menstruation, childbirth) or pathological (e.g. hookworms, malaria, hemorrhoids, peptic ulcer)

    * Basal losses, such as excretion through urine, sweat and bile and desquamated surface cells.

    * The recent widespread use of IUDs in the family planning programmed is an additional cause of iron loss.

    * Hormonal contraceptives on the other hand decrease menstrual blood loss by about 50 percent.

    Iron is mostly absorbed from duodenum and upper small intestine in the ferrous state, according to body needs.

    The rate of iron absorption is greater than before by a lot of factors like iron reserves of the individual, the existence of inhibitors (e.g. phosphates) and promoters (e.g. ascorbic acid) of iron absorption and disorders of duodenum and jejunum.

    Iron absorption is greater when there is an increased demand for iron, as for example during pregnancy.

    The absorbed iron is transported as plasma ferreting and stored in liver, spleen, bone marrow and kidney. When red cells are broken down, the liberated iron is reutilized in the formation of new red cells.

    Most of the iron is found in the red blood cells, where it forms part of that very complex protein known as hemoglobin. It is a red substance that gives color to the blood. It carries the oxygen to the tissues and keeps us living.

    Everyone knows that iron rusts when it is exposed to the air. Rusting is even more rapid when the air is damp. This chemical reaction is known as oxidation. Particles of iron attach itself to a molecule of oxygen from the air, forming iron oxide. This is exactly what happens when the red blood cells pass through the lungs. The air within the lungs is warm and damp, and the iron in the red cells actually rusts as it passes through the lung. All this happens with split second timing. From there the cells are approved by the blood stream to the heart, and then pumped to all the different parts of the body, forever carrying their load of oxygen.

    Thus we see that iron is very important to the well being of all parts of the body. A good number of the iron from the worn out cells is not needed, but is separated from the hemoglobin in the liver and spleen and used over and over again. However a certain amount of iron may be lost from the body for various reasons such as bleeding hemorrhoids, injuries, menstruation, hookworm infestation or stomach ulcers.

    Sometimes the level of the iron in the body may be lowered, owing to chronic blood loss or more probably to a poor diet. Iron may not be properly absorbed because the stomach is not producing sufficient hydrochloric acid. Sometimes this occurs during pregnancy.

    Iron deficiency causes secondary anemia. The hemoglobin content of the red cells is diminished. The size and volume of the red cells are below average. Present is normoblastic hyperplasia in the red bone marrow. Iron deficiency anemia occurs in children and adults due to severe blood loss.

    3-  Conclusion:

    Again, the Noble Quran is filled with scientific statements and notions.  These are statements of Allah Almighty describing how He created things on earth and in the Universe.  What's most amazing is that all of these scientific statements and notions had been proven to be in perfect agreement with science and our modern-day scientific discoveries.  Allah Almighty made the Noble Quran be Prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) Everlasting Divine Miracle and proof for Prophethood.  The Holy Book certainly stood the test of time 1,500 years ago with Its Claims, Prophecies and Miraculous language eloquence, and it does again and again in our day today with Its overwhelming agreement with science and discoveries that were not known to man 1,500 years ago.

    Allah Almighty Said: "We will soon show them Our signs in the Universe and inside their selves, until it will become quite clear to them that it is the truth. Is it not sufficient as regards your Lord that He is a witness over all things?  (The Noble Quran, 41:53)"

    There is no question that iron is crucial to the eye!  It is also vital to the eye's vision.  As we've seen above, Allah Almighty sent down iron as a source of "many benefits for mankind."  Allah Almighty also associated iron with sharp eyesights, in the Glorious Quran.  Scientists have proven that iron is indeed very important for the vision, and in preventing dizziness and eyesight or vision blurs.  It is very beneficial to the eye muscles, and in strengthening and sharpening the eyesight.  Therefore, Allah Almighty's use of iron in association with sharp eyesights, in the Glorious Quran, is indeed Scientifically Miraculous!

    And again, it is also important to know that Allah Almighty called the other minerals and vitamins in the body, such as calcium, phosphorous, chromium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, iodine, silica, chlorine, sulphur, vitamins A, B, C, D, E, K, etc... the Arabic word "FARTH" (فرث) in the Glorious Quran.  These modern-day scientific terms didn't exist 1,500 years ago, but yet still, Allah Almighty did clearly and indisputably address them in the Glorious Quran.  Please visit:

  • The formation of milk from blood and FARTH (digested food's material), mentioned in the Noble Quran and confirmed by Science!
  • Indeed, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty Alone for making the Noble Quran be the Perfect and Everlasting Miracle, for us humans, out of all of His Divine Miracles!  And may Allah Almighty send His Peace, Mercy and Blessings upon our Beloved and Blessed Prophet, Teacher and Role Model, Muhammad.  Ameen.

      

      

    4-  Rebuttals:

    In this section, I will add some hypothetical rebuttals and questions that might come across the reader's mind, and my responses to them.

      

    Question:

    Why couldn't the Quran state the facts that lead to your scientific conclusion, above, in a more straight forward way?  "Your vision is sharp/iron" seems to only suggest that the vision will be a very good one and that's all.  Why did you elaborate on the iron piece?  If the Verse wanted to say what you claim above, then it should've clearly stated that "iron is indeed important for the vision" or something like this.  Wouldn't you agree?

      

    My response:

    First of all, as I stated in the beginning of the article, and in the conclusion section, the Glorious Quran is filled with Scientific Statements and Notions that Allah Almighty Said, 1,500 years ago, to describe or talk about certain creations in the Universe.  The Glorious Quran is is not a science book that has to spell out things and/or elaborate on them in scientific details.  Allah Almighty, instead, gives us highlights and certain keywords and notions that are very scientifically powerful, and yet, very pithy in text.  The reason why Allah Almighty talked about the eyesight and used the Arabic word "iron" to describe it is simply because the metal iron is very relevant to the eyesight.  There are many Arabic words that Allah Almighty could've used to describe a good and sharp eyesight.  But why did He, the Almighty, choose iron?  The expression also wasn't popular among Arabs to describe a sharp vision.  Iron is known to be a very very strong and stubborn metal.  Ultimate Warriors of old used to test their strengths using different methods.  Some of these methods were:

    1. Fighting a male lion with bare hands and without any weapon.
        
    2. Bare knuckle and wrestling fights with other men.
        
    3. Getting chained with iron chains and breaking the iron chains with bare hands.

    So iron back then was used for sheer and mighty strength and not delicate and sensitive sharpness of visions.  In other words, the use of iron was used for muscles and sheer power of mighty men and not for sensitive eyesights.  This is where terms like the following come from:

    1. Iron fist.
    2. Iron hand.
    3. Iron grip.
    4. Iron wall.
    5. Iron curtain.

    Allah Almighty's use of iron for the eye is very unusual to the average Arab.  It's like me saying today that your new born baby has a power similar to that of iron!  This statement is just not common among us, and it will sound very weird.  I mean come on,

      

    Which suckling infant, that is only a few days old, has the strength of iron in it?!

      

    The same thing goes with the use of iron with visions:

  • Which eye has the mighty strength of iron?!
  • If you get punched a hard punch in the eye, what will happen to it?  Is your eye really that strong?  Of course not.  It's a very delicate and sensitive part of your body, perhaps even more delicate than the male testicles.  I mean, what will happen to you, if you were a male, and you were to get kicked very hard in your testicles?  You'd probably die!  So if somebody says that their testicles are as strong as iron, or they're made of steel, you would think that he's just speaking utter nonsense, especially when he wouldn't dare to allow you to kick him in the balls.  The point I am making here is this:

    1-  Prophet Muhammad and everybody around him, 1,500 years go, knew how delicate, frail and sensitive the eye was, as all of us know how delicate, frail and sensitive our eyes are.

    2-  The Glorious Quran's comparison between the eye's eyesight and iron was something abnormal back then, because iron was compared, back then and even still today, with sheer power and mighty muscles and strength.  The frail and delicate eye had nothing to do with iron!  And notice that Allah Almighty compared described the eyesight and not the eye as iron.  I mean, even if Allah Almighty described the eye itself as iron, then the Scientific Miracle would still stand.  But to make it even more accurate and precise, Allah Almighty compared the eyesight with the metal iron, giving us the highlights and the scientific notion about how important iron is to the vision, which had been proven to be scientifically true! 

    3-  As I demonstrated with the ample Western Scientific articles that I quoted in the article above, it has been scientifically well established and proven that the human bodies that lack iron, suffer primarily:

    1. Poor and blurry visions.
    2. Dizziness, headaches and pains in the head that will impact the person's ability to see.

      
    Indeed, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty Alone!  There were many Arabic words that Allah Almighty could've used to describe a sharp eyesight.  Examples of these words are:

    1. صائب (used for a falcon's sharp eyesight when it hunts other birds and preys)
    2. ثاقب (also used for falcon's eyesight)
    3. نافذ (also used for a falcon's eyesight)
        

      "وله نظر ثاقب" (and it has a sharp eyesight [1] [2] [3])
        
    4. حسن
    5. كبير
    6. عظيم
    7. قوى
    8. رفيع
    9. ذو بأس
    10. شديد

      

    حديد (iron) was not popular among Arabs to describe sharp eyesights!

      

    Proofs from the Encyclopedic 10-Book Lisan Al-Arab Dictionary and several other Encyclopedic Arabic-Arabic online Dictionaries [1] [2]:

    When I searched for the word Hadid (حديد) in the mentioned online dictionaries, I clearly saw the following:

    1-  It appears that the Glorious Quran's term "فبصرك اليوم حديد" was an original one from the Glorious Quran.

    2-  The mentioned term wasn't popular at all among the Arabs.  Not only there are no uses of this term in any poems or quotes that predate Islam (as the dictionaries would list them to show the certain word's usage among the Arabs of old), but the only quote that the term existed in in ALL OF THE dictionaries was in Noble Verse 50:22.

    3-  The interpretation of "فبصرك اليوم حديد" was done by two people [1] [2], 1,500 years ago, as listed and translated below; one was named Zayd bin Amro (زيد بن عمرو), and the other was anonymous, and both of their interpretations were wrong in the Lisan Al-Arab dictionary.  Usually, the Arabic words and terms would have many citations for them from several people and quoting several quotations, sayings, poems, proverbs to demonstrate the usage of the word.  In the case of "فبصرك اليوم حديد", this was hardly the case.  The following are what Lisan Al-Arab dictionary says:

    (Arabic is read from right to left)

    وأَما قوله تعالى: فبصرك اليوم حديد؛ قال: أَي لسان الميزان.
    ويقال: فبصرك اليوم حديد أَي فرأْيك اليوم نافذ.

    Translation:

    And in regards to Allah Almighty's Revelation: "فبصرك اليوم حديد" , it means: a balanced tongue.
    And it is said: "
    فبصرك اليوم حديد" , means your opinion is quite right.

    Both interpretations by two people who interpreted the Noble Verse 1,500 years ago were inaccurate.  The reason is because man didn't know that iron was indeed vital to the eyesight.   Man, 1,500 years ago, just simply did not and could not have known that.  Yet, it is stated in the Glorious Quran. 

    Indeed, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty Alone for making the Noble Quran be the Perfect and Everlasting Miracle, for us humans, out of all of His Divine Miracles!  And may Allah Almighty send His Peace, Mercy and Blessings upon our Beloved and Blessed Prophet, Teacher and Role Model, Muhammad.  Ameen.
