The land-sea ratio Miracle - Mentioned in the Glorious Quran and confirmed by Science!

The sections of this article are:

1-  The land-sea ratio in the Glorious Quran.

      -  "Land" is mentioned 14 times, and "Sea" is mentioned 39 times.  I personally counted them and listed their references below.

2-  The Scientific Proofs.
3-  Conclusion.

  

  

  

1-  The land-sea ratio in the Glorious Quran:

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:

  
"Land" is mentioned 14 times, and "Sea", which means Seas, Oceans and Rivers in the Glorious Quran, is mentioned 39 times.  14 + 39 = 53.

  • (14 / 53) * 100 = 26.415%
      
  • (39 / 53) * 100 =  73.584%
  • -- OR --

    "Land" is mentioned 12 times (if you want to exclude #13 and #14, below, because they're talking about land-creatures or creatures on land, and not exclusively about land only), and "Sea" is mentioned 39 times.  12 + 39 = 51.

  • (12 / 51) * 100 = 23.530%
      
  • (39 / 51) * 100 = 76.470%
  •   

    The Arabic word بر (bar), which means "land", occurred 12 or 14 times in the Glorious Quran.  I personally counted them, and this is the link that proves this.  To  check them manually for yourself, go to my website, www.QuranSearch.com, and type in (or copy and paste) بر  and choose the "Exact String" radio button and the "Arabic" translation, and click "Search". 

    The Noble Verses that the Word بر exist in and means "land" in them are:

    1. 5:96
    2. 6:59
    3. 6:63
    4. 6:97
    5. 10:22
    6. 17:67
    7. 17:68
    8. 17:70
    9. 27:63
    10. 29:65
    11. 30:41
    12. 31:32
    13. 98:6 (شر البرية means the worst creatures on land, or worst of land-creatures)
    14. 98:7 (خير البرية means the best creatures on land, or best of land-creatures)

    Please be advised that there are ample Noble Verses that بر occurs in them as part of Words.  Their meaning isn't "land".  They have completely different meanings, and any person who can read and understand Arabic can verify this when reading the returned Noble Verses in the link above.  

    The Arabic word بحر (bahr), which means "sea", occurred in the Glorious Quran 39 times.  Also, I personally counted them, and this is the link that proves this.  You can even count the highlighted words for yourself, even if you don't speak Arabic.  The Noble Verses that the word بحر exist in are:

    1. 2:50
    2. 2:164
    3. 5:96
    4. 6:59
    5. 6:63
    6. 6:97
    7. 7:138
    8. 7:163
    9. 10:22
    10. 10:90
    11. 14:32
    12. 16:14
    13. 17:66
    14. 17:67
    15. 17:70
    16. 18:60
    17. 18:61
    18. 18:63
    19. 18:79
    20. 18:109 (mentioned twice)
    21. 18:109 (mentioned twice)
    22. 20:77
    23. 22:65
    24. 24:40
    25. 25:53
    26. 26:63
    27. 27:61
    28. 27:63
    29. 30:41
    30. 31:27 (mentioned twice)
    31. 31:27 (mentioned twice)
    32. 31:31
    33. 35:12
    34. 42:32
    35. 44:24
    36. 45:12
    37. 52:6
    38. 55:19
    39. 55:24

    Please be advised though that some of the highlighted Words, while the letters exist in them, but they don't mean sea.  They mean war.  بحرب  and حرب  mean war.  My search engine picked up all of the words that contained بحر in them and returned them.  When I counted all of the occurrences of the word sea (بحر), I came up with 39 as everyone who can read and understand Arabic can easily verify this.    

      

      

    2-  The Scientific Proofs:

    Again, in the Glorious Quran:

    "Land" is mentioned 14 times, and "Sea", which means Seas, Oceans and Rivers in the Glorious Quran, is mentioned 39 times.  14 + 39 = 53.

  • (14 / 53) * 100 = 26.415%
      
  • (39 / 53) * 100 =  73.584%
  • -- OR --

    "Land" is mentioned 12 times (if you want to exclude #13 and #14, above, because they're talking about land-creatures or creatures on land, and not exclusively about land only), and "Sea" is mentioned 39 times.  12 + 39 = 51.

  • (12 / 51) * 100 = 23.530%
      
  • (39 / 51) * 100 = 76.470%
  • The following articles clearly confirm the Glorious Quran's numerical ratios.  Notice the red-emphasized text below proves that Scientists only estimate the percentages and don't know the exact precise number.

      

    Article #1:

    "Liquid water is present on

      

    Article #2:

    "Water is widely distributed on Earth as freshwater and salt water in the oceans. The Earth is often referred to as the "blue planet" because when viewed from space it appears blue. This blue color is caused by reflection from the oceans which cover roughly 71% of the area of the Earth." (Source)

      

    Article #3:

    "Seen from space, our planetís surface appears to be dominated by the color blue. The Earth appears blue because large bodies of saline water known as the oceans dominate the surface. Oceans cover approximately 70.8% or 361 million square kilometers (139 million square miles) of Earthís surface (Table 8o-1) with a volume of about 1370 million cubic kilometers (329 million cubic miles). The average depth of these extensive bodies of sea water is about 3.8 kilometers (2.4 miles). Maximum depths can exceed 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) in a number of areas known as ocean trenches. The oceans contain 97% of our planet's available water. The other 3% is found in atmosphere, on the Earth's terrestrial surface, or in the Earth's lithosphere in various forms and stores (see the Hydrologic Cycle)." (Source)

      

    The Glorious Quran's Miracle!

    The fact that the Scientists' ratio estimations are very close to the ratio calculations of the Glorious Quran (both are in the 70s for water and 20s for land), demonstrates that Allah Almighty indeed had a Divine Purpose and Wisdom for choosing certain Words in the Glorious Quran!  The land-sea ratio in the Glorious Quran could've been way way off from what Western Scientists estimate, today.  But because the Glorious Quran is the Divine Truth from Allah Almighty, the ratios of the Glorious Quran and the ratios of the scientists' calculations/estimations are very close.  In fact, if we take the 14 Noble Verses for بر  in the first case, above, then we would only be off by a roughly 2.5% between the scientists' estimations and the Glorious Quran's ratios.  That is very close, especially when scientists could only give an estimation and not an exact figure.

    To me as a firm believer in the Overwhelming Scientific Miracles in the Glorious Quran, I strongly believe that the land-sea ratio is one of the two cases that I presented above.  And Allah Almighty always knows best.

      

      

    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)"

    As we've seen above, Scientists estimate that the land-water ratio on earth is approximately 29 to 71.  When we calculated the occurrences of land and sea (which means, oceans, seas and rivers) in the Glorious Quran, and calculated their ratio, we got two sets of numbers that are very close to the scientists' estimations.  And again, the fact that the Scientists' ratio estimations are very close to the ratio calculations of the Glorious Quran (both are in the 70s for water and 20s for land), demonstrates that Allah Almighty indeed had a Divine Purpose and Wisdom for choosing certain Words in the Glorious Quran!  The land-sea ratio in the Glorious Quran could've been way way off from what Western Scientists estimate, today.  But because the Glorious Quran is the Divine Truth from Allah Almighty, the ratios of the Glorious Quran and the ratios of the scientists' calculations/estimations are very close.  In fact, if we take the 14 Noble Verses for بر  in the first case, above, then we would only be off by a roughly 2.5% between the scientists' estimations and the Glorious Quran's ratios.  That is very close, especially when scientists could only give an estimation and not an exact figure.

    To me as a firm believer in the Overwhelming Scientific Miracles in the Glorious Quran, I strongly believe that the land-sea ratio is one of the two cases that I presented above.  And Allah Almighty always knows best.

    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.

    The S-shaped moon orbit!

    It is also relevant to know that Allah Almighty described the shape of the moon's entire orbit around the earth as a shape of an old and dried-out date tree's branch, also scientifically known and confirmed today as S-shaped.  The shape of the old and dried-out branch of a date tree does resemble the letter "S".  I provided images in the article that prove this.

    Answering Trinity.

    Ask me any question.

    Corruption in the Old Testament.

    Answering Trinity.

    The New Testament confirms the Apocalypse (Revelation in Greek) of Peter which claims that Jesus never died on the cross!

    Crucifixion of Jesus is a lie according to several of the Disciples' early writings.

    Also see detailed refutations to Exodus 12:46, Numbers 9:12, Zechariah 12:10 and Psalm 34:20 that supposedly suggest that GOD Almighty was going to get pierced on the cross.

    The New Testament was not even written by its original authors.

    The "God" title in Isaiah 9:6 was given to others before and after Jesus.

    The early Christians rejected Trinity and never believed in it.

    Contradictions in the resurrection story in the Bible.

    Was Jesus crucified on a tree (according to Peter), cross (according to others), or never got crucified (according to Islam)?

    We only believe in Jesus' personal quotes as closest to the truth.

    Jesus according to Islam never got killed on the cross.  Allah Almighty saved him.

    The blessed Jesus in Islam.

    Do Psalm 16:8-11 refer to Jesus' resurrection as the book of Acts suggest?

    Jesus was never crucified according to the Gospel of Barnabas.

    Isaiah 42-54 seem to predict Islam and the removal of GOD Almighty's Covenant from the people of Israel.

    Deconstructing Isaiah 53 & the crucifixion/resurrection of Jesus - Exposing Paul's inventions.

    None of Jesus' disciples witnessed the crucifixion. They "all fled" and "deserted" Jesus. This further confirms Islam's claims.
