1-  The Noble Quran'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)"

As I was reading my Precious Holy Quran, I stumbled upon Noble Verse 12:84 and felt that there was indeed a Great Scientific Statement in this Precious and Holy Noble Verse.  It reads:

12:84 وتولى عنهم وقال يااسفي على يوسف وابيضت عيناه من الحزن فهو كظيم

"And He turned away from them, saying, "I am grieving over Joseph." His eyes turned white FROM grieving so much; he was truly sad.  (The Noble Quran, 12:84)"

Notice how Allah Almighty Said that Jacob's eyes turned white due to his grieve over the loss of Joseph, peace be upon both of them. 


Allah Almighty also Said about the Noble Quran:

17:82 وننزل من القران ماهو شفاء ورحمة للمؤمنين ولايزيد الظالمين الا خسارا

"We send down (stage by stage) in the Quran that which is a healing and a mercy to those who believe: to the unjust it causes nothing but loss after loss.  (The Noble Quran, 17:82)"

41:44 ولو جعلناه قرانا اعجميا لقالوا لولا فصلت اياته ءاعجمي وعربي قل هو للذين امنوا هدى وشفاء والذين لايؤمنون في اذانهم وقر وهو عليهم عمى اولئك ينادون من مكان بعيد

"Had We sent this as a Quran (in the language) other than Arabic, they would have said: "Why are not its verses explained in detail? What! (a Book) not in Arabic and (a Messenger an Arab?" Say: "It is a Guide and a Healing to those who believe; and for those who believe not, there is a deafness in their ears, and it is blindness in their (eyes): They are (as it were) being called from a place far distant!"  (The Noble Quran, 41:44)"

 

 

2-  The Scientific Discoveries:

The following scientific articles clearly and indisputably confirm Allah Almighty's Holy and Divine Statement in Noble Verse 12:84:

 

Article #1:

"

An international patent for Quranic eye drops !

 
 

( وتولى عنهم وقال يا أسفي على يوسف وابيضت عيناه من الحزن فهو كظيم ( يوسف (84)

 

Causes of Cataract:

      1-     A direct trauma to the eye lens.
2-  High temperature.
3-     Different types of radiation or flaring light, causing what is termed “radiation cataract”.

      4-     Opacity due to senile cataract, and diabetes mellitus that increases the concentration of fluids around the lens and absorbs its fluid,
      causing the presence of cataract rapidly.
5-     Severe grief causes the increase of adrenalin hormone which in turn causes increase of blood sugar, which is one of the opacity causes
      in addition to coincidence of grieving with weeping.

 


 

 

(إذهبوا بقميصي هذا قألقوه على وجه أبي يأت بصيرا وأتوني بأهلكم أجمعين) يوسف 93

 

(ولما فصلت العير قال أبوهم إني لأجد ريح يوسف لولا أن تفندون * قالوا تالله إنك لفي ضلالك القديم * فلما أن جاء البشير ألقاه على وجهه فارتد بصيرا قال ألم أقل لكم إني أعلم من الله ما لا تعلمون) يوسف 96:94

 

Hence is the beginning and the guidance!

Article #2:

From www.Wikipedia.org:

(Notice how the Persians thought that cataract happens from superstitious reasons, while the Noble Quran Stated that it happens from a confirmed medical reason.  Also, we do not know if the Persians thought of this before or after Islam.)

"A cataract is a clouding that develops in the crystalline lens of the eye or in its envelope, varying in degree from slight to complete opacity and obstructing the passage of light. Early in the development of age-related cataract the power of the lens may be increased, causing near-sightedness (myopia), and the gradual yellowing and opacification of the lens may reduce the perception of blue colours. Cataracts typically progress slowly to cause vision loss and are potentially blinding if untreated.[1]

A senile cataract, occurring in the aged, is characterized by an initial opacity in the lens, subsequent swelling of the lens and final shrinkage with complete loss of transparency.[2] Moreover, with time the cataract cortex liquefies to form a milky white fluid in a Morgagnian cataract, which can cause severe inflammation if the lens capsule ruptures and leaks. Untreated, the cataract can cause phacomorphic glaucoma. Very advanced cataracts with weak zonules are liable to dislocation anteriorly or posteriorly. Such spontaneous posterior dislocations (akin to the historical surgical procedure of couching) in ancient times were regarded as a blessing from the heavens, because some perception of light was restored in the cataractous patients.

Cataract derives from the Latin cataracta meaning "waterfall" and the Greek kataraktes and katarrhaktes, from katarassein meaning "to dash down" (kata-, "down"; arassein, "to strike, dash"[3]). As rapidly running water turns white, the term may later have been used metaphorically to describe the similar appearance of mature ocular opacities. In Latin, cataracta had the alternate meaning "portcullis",[4] so it is also possible that the name came about through the sense of "obstruction". Early Persian physicians called the term nazul-i-ah, or 'descent of the water' - vulgarised into waterfall disease or cataract - believing such blindness to be caused by an outpouring of corrupt humour into the eye.[5] In dialect English a cataract is called a pearl, as in "pearl eye" and "pearl-eyed".[6]

(Again, notice how the Persians thought that cataract happens from superstitious reasons, while the Noble Quran Stated that it happens from a confirmed medical reason.  Also, we do not know if the Persians thought of this before or after Islam.)

Causes

Cataracts develop from a variety of reasons, including long-term exposure to ultraviolet light, exposure to radiation, secondary effects of diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and advanced age, or trauma (possibly much earlier); they are usually a result of denaturation of lens protein. Genetic factors are often a cause of congenital cataracts and positive family history may also play a role in predisposing someone to cataracts at an earlier age, a phenomenon of "anticipation" in pre-senile cataracts. Cataracts may also be produced by eye injury or physical trauma. A study among Icelandair pilots showed commercial airline pilots as three times more likely to develop cataracts than people with non-flying jobs. This is thought to be caused by excessive exposure to radiation coming from outer space.[7] Cataracts are also unusually common in persons exposed to infrared radiation, such as glassblowers who suffer from "exfoliation syndrome". Exposure to microwave radiation can cause cataracts. Atopic or allergic conditions are also known to quicken the progression of cataracts, especially in children.[8]

Cataracts may be partial or complete, stationary or progressive, hard or soft.


Some drugs can induce cataract development, such as
Corticosteroids[9] and Ezetimibe[citation needed] and Seroquel.

There are various types of cataracts, e.g. nuclear, cortical, mature, and hypermature. Cataracts are also classified by their location, e.g. posterior (classically due to steroid use[9][10]) and anterior (common (senile) cataract related to aging).

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's Divine Claim in Noble Verse 12:84 is in perfect harmony with Science.  Jacob's grief over losing Joseph caused for his eyes to whiten by Allah Almighty's Divine Wisdom and Will.  It seems that either no one knew or little knew, who were far and remote from Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, of this Scientific fact.  Yet, we find it in the Noble Quran. 

Also, according to the Wikipedia.org article above, we do not know if the Persians had their superstitious thought before or after Islam.  And while they thought of the whiteness of the eye superstitiously, Islam came and confirmed that it is due to medical and psychological reasons.  Notice again the green-colored text in the Noble Verse:

12:84 وتولى عنهم وقال يااسفي على يوسف وابيضت عيناه من الحزن فهو كظيم

"And He turned away from them, saying, "I am grieving over Joseph." His eyes turned white FROM grieving so much; he was truly sad.  (The Noble Quran, 12:84)"

And even if the Noble Quran's information existed before Islam, then to me, this could very well be a remnant of Divine Truth from previous Divine Revelations that Allah Almighty Decided to Preserve and Confirm in the Holy 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.
