The Miracle of Iron in Quran

The Miracle of Iron in Quran

The Miracle of Iron

Iron is one of the prominent  elements in the Quran. In the chapter known Al-Hadeed, which means Iron, we are informed:
         “We have already sent Our messengers with clear evidences and sent down with them the Scripture and the balance that the people may maintain [their affairs] in justice. And We sent down iron, wherein is great military might and benefits for the people, and so that Allah may make evident those who support Him and His messengers unseen. Indeed, Allah is Powerful and Exalted in Might.”  (Quran 57:25)
 The Miracle of Iron in Quran

The word “anzalna,” translated as “sent down” and used for iron in the verse, could be thought of having a metaphorical meaning to demonstrate that iron has been given to avail people. But, when we take into consideration the literal meaning of the word, which is, “being physically sent down from the sky, as this word had not been used in the Quran except literally, like the descending of the rain or inspiration , we perceive that this verse includes a very important scientific marvel . Because, modern astronomical findings have exposed that the iron found in our world has come from huge stars in outer space.1

Naturally occurring iron consists of four constant isotopes: 5.845% of 54Fe, 91.754% of 56Fe, 2.119% of 57Fe and 0.282% of 58Fe. Of these constant isotopes, only 57Fe has a nuclear spin (−1/2).

The Quranic Surah is also 57th Surah Al-Ĥadīd (The Iron) and naturally occurring iron consists of four constant isotopes  and only constant isotope of iron with nuclear spin is 57Fe.

If we count Bismillah as first verse then this specific verse talking about iron would be 26th same is the atomic number of iron.

Note also that the word Allah that appears in this particular “Iron” verse/ayat is also 26th in the Surah/chapter [Verses: 1, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10 (4), 11, 14 (2), 16, 17 18 19, 20, 21 (3), 22, 23, 24 , 25 (2) ]. In Verse / Ayah 10, 14, 21, 25 Allah’s name is mentioned multiple times. I (admin) have made sure it myself. Iron’s atomic number is also 26.  

(You can count it yourself in Arabic version but if you want to count in translated version in english go for Sahih International)

I would say read this wonderful 57th Surah / Chapter containing whole Quran. Try to comprehend its message, that is much more significant .


I came to know of this another truth below from our Muslim brothers.

The total of consecutive value of the word “hadid”  حديد   “Iron”  alone is 26. And 26 is the atomic number of iron.

ح is equal to 8.

د  is equal to 4.

ي is equal to 10.

د  is equal to 4.

8 + 4 + 10 + 4 = 26


Not only the iron on earth, but also the iron in the whole Solar System, comes from outer space, since the temperature in the Sun is insufficient for the formulation of iron. The sun has a flatness temperature of 6,000 degrees Celsius, and a core temperature of approximately 20 million degrees.

Iron can only be generated in much greater stars than the Sun, where the temperature exceeds a few hundred million degrees. When the amount of iron reaches a specific level in a star, the star can no longer dilate it, and it finally bursts in what is called a “nova” or a “supernova.” These blasts make it possible for iron to be taken out  into space.

The marvel of iron

One scientific origion supplies the following information on this subject:

“There is also proof for older supernova events: Enhanced levels of iron-60 in deep-sea sediments have been explained as references that a supernova blasts happened within 90 light-years of the sun about 5 million years ago. Iron-60 is a radioactive isotope of iron, shaped in su-pernova explosions, which decays with a half life of 1.5 million years. xposed An increased existance of this isotope in a geologic layer points the recent nucleosynthesis of elements nearby in space and their sequent transfer to the earth (perhaps as part of dust grains).” 2

All this indicates that iron did not form on the Earth, but was carried from Supernovas, and was “sent down,” as mentioned in the verse. It is obvious that this truth could not have been known in the 7th century, when the Quran was exposed . Nevertheless, this truth is linked in the Quran, the Word of God, Who includes all things in His unlimited knowledge. The truth that the verse particularly states iron is quite stunning , considering that these discoveries were made at the end of the 20th century. In his book Nature’s fate , the well-known microbiologist Michael Denton confirms the significance of iron:

“Of all the metals there is none more fundamental to life than iron. It is the bulk of iron in the middle of a star which triggers a supernova eruption and the subsequent spread of the vital atoms of life throughout the cosmos.

It was the drawing by gravity of iron atoms to the center of the primitive earth that produced the heat which brought about the ini-tial chemical differentiation of the earth, the out gassing of the early atmosphere, and finally the formulation of the hydrosphere.

It is molten iron in the middle of the earth which, acting like a gigantic dynamo, produces the earth’s magnetic field, which in turn creates the Van Allen ray belts that shield the earth’s surface from devastating high-power -penetrating cosmic ray and maintain the crucial ozone layer from cosmic ray devastation …

“Without the iron atom, there would be no carbon-based life in the cosmos; no supernovae, no heating of the primitive earth, no atmosphere or hydrosphere. There would be no preservative magnetic field, no Van Allen radiation belts, no ozone layer, no metal to make hemoglobin [in human blood], no metal to tame the reactivity of oxygen, and no oxidative metabolism.

“The intriguing and |close relevance between life and iron, between the red color of blood and the dying of some distant star, not only points to the relation of metals to biology but also the biocentricity of the cosmos…”3

This account obviously points to the significance of the iron atom. The truth that specific attention is drawn to iron in the Quran also confirms the significance of the element.

Furthermore, iron oxide particles were used in a cancer remedy in recent months and positive evolutions were noticed . A team led by Dr. Andreas Jordan, at the world famous Charité Hospital in Germany, manged in devastating cancer cells with this new technique advanced for the remedy of cancer- magnetic liquid hyperthermia (high tem-perature magnetic liquid). As a consequence of this technique, first performed on the 26-year-old Nikolaus H., no new cancer cells were noticed in the patient in the following three months.

This method of remedy can be summarized as follows:

    A fluid including iron oxide particles is vaccinated into the lump by means of a special syringe. These particles spread throughout the lump cells. This fluid consists of thousands of millions of particles, 1,000 times smaller than the red blood corpuscles, of iron oxide in 1 cm3 that can eas-ily flow through all blood vessels.4
    The patient is then put in a machine with a energy -ful magnetic field.
    This magnetic field, applied externally, starts to set the iron particles in the lump in movement . During this time the temperature in the lump including the iron oxide par-ticles rises by up to 45 degrees.
    In a few minutes the cancer cells, unable to conserve themselves from the heat, are either weakened or ruined . The lup  may then be entirely extirepated with subse-quent chemotherapy.5

In this remedy it is only the cancer cells that are affected by the magnetic field, since only they include the iron oxide particles. The spread of this technique is a main evolution in the remedy of this potentially lethal illness . Iron has also been found to be a cure for people suffering from anemia. In the remedy of such a widespread illnesses , the use of the expression

    “..And We sent down iron, wherein is great military might and benefits for the people,..” (Quran, 57:25)

in the Quran is particularly noteworthy. Indeed, in that verse, the Quran may be pointing the interests of iron even for human health. (Allah knows best.)

    “And those who have believed in Allah and His messengers – those are [in the ranks of] the supporters of truth and the martyrs, with their Lord. For them is their reward and their light. But those who have disbelieved and denied Our verses (Ayaat) – those are the companions of Hellfire.”
    (Holy Quran 57:19)
