1-  Allah Almighty's Divine Claim in the Noble 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 in Noble Verse 75:4 Said that in the resurrection, He will bring back every single human being in every original detail of his/her including his/her fingertips.  Allah Almighty emphasized the fingertips when He talked about resurrecting our full and complete original identities.  Allah Almighty clearly declared that the fingertips are unique in every human.

With this said, let us now look at Allah Almighty's Divine Claim in Noble Verse 75:4:

 

Noble Verse(s) 75:4
Yusuf Ali:

[075:004]  Nay, We are able to put together in perfect order the very tips of his fingers.

Dr. Munir Munshey (one of www.answering-christianity.com's authors):

[075:004]  Indeed, We have the power to (mold and) sculpt (even) his finger tips in perfect proportions.

Transliteration:

[075:004]  Bala qadireena AAala an nusawwiya bananahu

Arabic (from right to left):

75:4 بلى قادرين على ان نسوي بنانه

Sher Ali:

[075:004]  Yea, WE have the power to restore his very finger-tips.

Shakir:

[075:004]  Yea! We are able to make complete his very fingertips

Pickthall:

[075:004]  Yea, verily. We are Able to restore his very fingers!

Sale:

[075:004]  Yea: We are able to put together the smallest bones of his fingers.

Muhammad Al-Hilali & Muhsin Khan:

[075:004]  Yes, We are Able to put together in perfect order the tips of his fingers.

Palmer:

[075:004]  Able are we to arrange his finger tips!

Arberry:

[075:004]  Yes indeed; We are able to shape again his fingers.

Khalifa: (why is he here?)

[075:004]  Yes indeed; we are able to reconstruct his finger tip.

Rodwell:

[075:004]  Aye! his very finger tips are we able evenly to replace.

 

 

2-  Further proofs regarding بنانه (banana) from Noble Verse 8:12:

Let us further examine the Noble Word بنانه in Noble Verse 8:12 to further see that it means fingertips:

 

Noble Verse(s) 8:12
Yusuf Ali:

[008:012]  Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): "I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instil terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them."

Dr. Munir Munshey (one of www.answering-christianity.com's authors):

[008:012]  (Remember) when your Lord inspired the angels, “I am certainly with you. Keep them steadfast. I’m going to cast terror in the hearts of the unbelievers. So strike their necks and smite all their fingers and toes.

Transliteration:

[008:012]  Ith yoohee rabbuka ila almala-ikati annee maAAakum fathabbitoo allatheena amanoo saolqee fee quloobi allatheena kafaroo alrruAAba faidriboo fawqa al-aAAnaqi waidriboo minhum kulla bananin

Arabic (from right to left):

8:12 اذ يوحي ربك الى الملائكة اني معكم فثبتوا الذين امنوا سالقي في قلوب الذين كفروا الرعب فاضربوا فوق الاعناق واضربوا منهم كل بنان

Sher Ali:

[008:012]  When thy Lord revealed to the angels, saying, `I am with you; so make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Smite them above their necks, and smite off all finger-tips.'

Shakir:

[008:012]  When your Lord revealed to the angels: I am with you, therefore make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.

Pickthall:

[008:012]  When thy Lord inspired the angels, (saying): I am with you. So make those who believe stand firm. I will throw fear into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Then smite the necks and smite of them each finger.

Sale:

[008:012]  Also when thy Lord spake unto the angels, saying, verily I am with you; wherefore confirm those who believe. I will cast a dread into the hearts of the unbelievers. Therefore strike off their heads. And strike off all the ends of their fingers.

Muhammad Al-Hilali & Muhsin Khan:

[008:012]  (Remember) when your Lord inspired the angels, "Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes."

Palmer:

[008:012]  When your Lord inspired the angels - 'Verily, I am with you; make ye firm then those who believe; I will cast dread into the hearts of those who misbelieve,- strike off their necks then, and strike off from them every finger tip.'

Arberry:

[008:012]  When thy Lord was revealing to the angels, 'I am with you; so confirm the believers. I shall cast into the unbelievers' hearts terror; so smite above the necks, and smite every finger of them!'

Khalifa: (why is he here?)

[008:012]  Recall that your Lord inspired the angels: "I am with you; so support those who believed. I will throw terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved. You may strike them above the necks, and you may strike even every finger."

Rodwell:

[008:012]  When thy Lord spake unto the angels, "I will be with you: therefore stablish ye the faithful. I will cast a dread into the hearts of the infidels." Strike off their heads then, and strike off from them every finger-tip.

 

There is no question:

As we clearly see in virtually every single English translation above,  بنانه (banana) means fingertips, and it was used in Noble Verse 75:4 to give the uniqueness of every person.  Let us now see if science has proven that our fingertips and fingerprints are indeed unique for every individual.

 

 

3-  The Scientific proofs about fingertips and fingerprints being unique for every individual:


Article #1:

"Questions on finger prints:

Assuming that the population of the earth is 5.6 billion, and each person has 10 fingers.  If only about 70 million have ever been finger printed, is that, mathematically speaking, really a large enough sampling to make the statement "NO TWO FINGER PRINTS ARE THE SAME", with absolution?

------------------------------------------------

Hi Larry!

Let us speak a little about fingerprints...There are 3 basic fingerprints patterns that are called Loops,Arches and Whorls and  everyone falls into one of these patterns. Beside this,  within these patterns are what we call minutia points. There are about thirty different types of these minutae points  and never were found 2 people with the same minutae in the same number and in the same places on their fingertips. They are formed genetically before each person is born, and never change through his  (her) lifetime, being formed underneath the skin in a layer called dermal papilae. So since fingertips consist of a complex combination of very specific patterns, where size, location and number are also variables, it is possible to affirm that they are unique, so there are no fingerprints equal, even in genetic twins.  Of course that is an affirmation based on statistics and no one has  ever collected  and compared all the fingerprints of all the humans from the beginning of humanity and also up to the extinction of this Homo Sapiens species.

However nowadays there are other methods for a unique discrimination of a human, as DNA, and the iris pattern analysis. But the main problem found by the scientists that exam fingerprints toward a unique identification is mainly the difficulty  in collecting and reproducing fingerprints patterns usually for identification of criminals. There could easily happen errors that could led to wrong identifications.

Thanks for the quite interesting question!

I suggest you read the works of the mathematician Karl Popper...(spelling unsure) who had very sound arguments along that line. Inductive logic...how about...all stars of a certain mass will become red giants...there are trillions of stars?

Article #2:

"Can you explain the LightPrint™ solution and what differentiates this technology from other fingerprint sensors?

Traditional optical fingerprint sensors are able to capture and compare data from the surface of the finger — the fingerprint ridges. Fingerprints are an obvious choice for a biometric; we learned as children our fingerprints are unique. What we know now is that the foundation of those surface ridges, the physiological structure below the skin, provides the foundation of those the surface ridges. LightPrint™ sensors can look below the surface of the skin to that fingerprint foundation to capture and compare additional data about an individual's unique fingerprint, which significantly improves the real world effectiveness of LightPrint™, enabled biometric solutions."

Article #3:

From Dr. Harun Yahya at: http://www.miraclesofthequran.com/scientific_66.html.

THE IDENTITY IN THE FINGERPRINT


Everyone, including identical twins, has a unique fingerprint. In other words, people's identities are coded at their fingertips. This coding system may also be compared to the barcode system that is used today.

While it is stated in the Qur'an that it is easy for Allah to bring man back to life after death, peoples' fingerprints are particularly emphasized:

Yes, We are able to put together in perfect order the very tips of his fingers. (Qur'an, 75:4)

The emphasis on fingerprints has a very special meaning. This is because shapes and details on everyone's fingerprint are unique to each individual. Every person who is alive or who has ever lived in this world has a set of unique fingerprints. Furthermore, even identical twins having the very same DNA sequence have their own set of fingerprints.105

Fingerprints attain their final shape before birth and remain the same for a lifetime unless a permanent scar appears. That is why fingerprints are accepted as a very important proof of identity, exclusive to their owner. The science of fingerprints has been used as a non-erring identity determination method.

However, what is important is that this feature of fingerprints was only discovered in the late 19th century. Before then, people regarded fingerprints as ordinary curves without any specific importance or meaning. However in the Qur'an, Allah points to the fingertips, which did not attract anyone's attention at that time, and calls our attention to their importance. This importance has only been fully understood in our day.

The validity of the technique to establish identity by means of fingerprints (AFS) has been confirmed by various police organisations over the last 25 years and is a legally approved method. No technology of identity verification in our time gives such effective results as fingerprints. Using fingerprints to establish identity has been used in legal processes for the last 100 years and possesses international acceptance. “What is a Fingerprint?,” (www.ridgesandfurrows.

.)
 

In his book Fingerprint Techniques A.A. Moenssens analyses the way that each individual has a unique set of fingerprints:

... no two fingerprints from different digits have ever been found to match exactly. Andre A. Moenssens, “Is Fingerprint Identification a ‘Science’?,” (www.forensic-evidence.com/site/
ID/ID00004_2.html#ID1.)

4-  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's Divine Claim about fingerprints and fingertips are unique in every human has been scientifically proven to be true!  Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, could not have known that man is unique in his fingertips and elsewhere in his body, because as humans we age and get older and our skins wrinkle and change.  So declaring that man's fingertips, which are the skin on his fingers, are unique is quite a Miraculous Statement!  This information was not known to man 1,500 years ago.

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 Scientific Miracles in the Noble Quran.

The cracking of the moon mentioned in the Noble Quran and confirmed by science!

  • Images of the moon's fault line and ancient moonquakes (earthquakes) that cracked it.

  • The Quran states that the light of the moon is reflected light.

    Prophet Muhammad's peace be upon him section.

    Allah, Islam, Quran, Muhammad questions and answers.

    What is the place of Jews, Christians and non-Muslims in Islam.

    Ask me any question section.

    The S-shaped moon orbit!

    In another Noble Verse, 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.

    Please visit: The moon's S-shaped orbit around earth is shaped like a branch of a date tree, mentioned in the Noble Quran and confirmed by Science!

     

    The egg-shaped earth's orbit!

    In another Noble Verse, Allah Almighty described the shape of the earth's orbit around the sun as egg-shaped which had also been confirmed by science.

    Please visit: If the Noble Quran says the earth is "egg-shaped" through a Notion, then why couldn't Prophet Muhammad just say it clear in plain Arabic? with detailed proofs demonstrating the miracle of the Word/Notion "dahaha".
