O people, God's promise is the truth; therefore, do not be distracted by this lowly life. Do not be diverted from God by mere illusions. 35:5

Prophecies that have been fulfilled
Prophecy is foretold news about any future event. Prophecies within the Quran are considered the most authentic criterion and a vital proof that it is a divine source and the true word of God. The Quran contains many prophecies that have been fulfilled, including the following:

Every prophecy herein will come to pass, and you will surely find out. 6:67

The preservation of Pharaoh's body
While the Bible only narrates the drowning of Pharaoh, the Holy Quran confirms the drowning and ensures the preservation of his body, as a Sign to mankind:

We delivered the Children of Israel across the sea. Pharaoh and his troops pursued them, aggressively and sinfully. When drowning became a reality for him, he said, "I believe that there is no god except the One in whom the Children of Israel have believed; I am a submitter." Too late! For you have rebelled already, and chose to be a transgressor. Today, we will preserve your body, to set you up as a lesson for future generations. Unfortunately, many people are totally oblivious to our signs. 10:90-92

This is the body of Pharaoh Ramses II, the Egyptian King in the era of Prophet Moses. He was found by the Red Sea, in Jabalain, and is now on display in the Royal Mummies Chamber of the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. Video Here

  • Although the story of Pharaoh's drowning and preservation of his body was revealed in the Quran 1400 years ago, Pharaoh's body was only found 111 years ago, in 1898.
  • The time it takes for a human body to completely deteriorate to bones is a maximum of 50 years, but Pharaoh's age is approximately 3000 years old.

Certainly Pharaoh was mighty on the earth and one who transgressed all bounds. 10:83

We recite to you herein some history of Moses and Pharaoh, truthfully, for the benefit of people who believe. 28:3

We have revealed to you clarifying revelations, and examples from the past generations, and an enlightenment for the righteous. 24:34

Noah's Ark
Noah was instructed to build the Ark for the believers, and those who ignored God's message were drowned in the flood.

We sent Noah to his people, saying, "I come to you as a clear warner." 11:25

The leaders who disbelieved among his people said, "We see that you are no more than a human being like us.. Indeed, we think you are liars." 11:27

"Build the ark under Our watchful eyes, and with Our inspiration, and do not implore Me on behalf of those who have transgressed; they are destined to drown." 11:37

When our judgment came, and the atmosphere boiled over, we said, "Carry on it a pair of each kind, together with your family, except those who are condemned. Carry with you those who have believed," and only a few have believed with him. 11:40

It was proclaimed: "O earth, swallow your water," and "O sky, cease." The water then subsided; the judgment was fulfilled. The ark finally rested on the hills of Judea. It was then proclaimed: "The transgressors have perished." 11:44

Mount Judi, according to very Early Christian and Islamic tradition, is Noah's apobaterion or "Place of Descent", the location where the Ark came to rest after the Great Flood.

In 1959, Turkish army captain Llhan Durupinar discovered an unusual shape while examining aerial photographs of his country. The smooth shape, larger than a football field, stood out from the rough and rocky terrain at an altitude of 6,300 feet near the Turkish border with Iran.

The remains of Noah's Ark have now been found on Mt Judi, Turkey.

Scientists confirm Noah's Ark resting place (with pictures of ruins)

..When the people of Noah disbelieved the messengers, we drowned them, and we set them up as a sign for the people. We have prepared for the transgressors a painful retribution. 25:37

Fall and Rise of the Romans
Certainly, the Romans will be defeated, In the nearest land. After their defeat, they will rise again and win, within several years. Such is God's decision, both in the first prophecy, and the second. On that day, the believers shall rejoice in Gods victory. He grants victory to whomever He wills. He is the Almighty, Most Merciful. 30:2-5

Apparently, there was not a remote chance of the fulfillments of the either prediction in the next few years. On the one hand, there were a handful of the Muslims, who were being beaten and tortured in Makkah, and even till eight years after this prediction there appeared no chance of their victory and domination.

In short, as the British historian Gibbon says, even seven to eight years after this prediction of the Quran, the conditions were such that no one could even imagine that the Byzantine Empire would ever gain an upper hand over Iran. Not to speak of gaining domination, no one could hope that the Empire, under the circumstances, would even survive. But surely the prophecy were fulfilled within ten years in 624 C.E. The accuracy of this unlikely prophecy clearly points to the Quran's Divine Revelation as the word of God.

If you work righteousness you work righteousness for your own good but if you commit evil you do so to your own detriment. Thus when the second time comes to pass they will defeat you and enter the masjid just as they did the first time. They will wipe out all the gains you had accomplished. 17:7

Tagging Livestock
"I will mislead them and i will entice them i will command them to marking the ears of livestock and i will command them to distort the creation of God." Anyone who accepts the devil as a lord instead of God has incurred a profound loss. 41:18

Ear tagging and ear marking are used to identify livestock. Animals containing GM micro-organisms or their containers must also be tagged or labelled so as to indicate that they have been genetically modified. Large animals, such as pigs, sheep, cattle etc., must be individually tagged (e.g. by microchip, tattoos, ear tags or ear notches).

This prophecy is yet another proof; this verse from the Quran warns us that those who alter the creation of God are being enticed by the devil.

The Creature
When the punishment is deserved by them we will produce for them a creature made of earthly materials declaring that the people are not certain about our revelations. 27:82

The Quran has predicted that at the right time God will produce a creature that will be instrumental in unveiling God's signs. This was fulfilled, the creature was the computer which was instrumental in unveiling the Quran's numerical code, and proclaiming that the world has neglected God's message.

The extensive mathematical structure of the Quran was revealed to Rashad Khalifa in the 19th century, 12 centuries after the Quran. It has become evidentially true, as majority of Muslims (Sunni and Shia) who uphold Hadiths, along with the disbelievers, have denied this overwhelming proof of divine authorship and instead decided to uphold fabrications.

Note that the digits that make up 27:82 add up to 19. As it happened, the computer was the tool to be used in counting all the thousands of figures and multiples of the miracle in the Quran.

Let us look at 27:82 and particularly at its mirror image of the Sura and verse numbers, the 27 becomes 72, and the 82 becomes 28. Verse 72:28 proclaims: He (God) has counted the numbers of all things.

Bible confirms the coming of Muhammad
Prophet Muhammad's prophetic Name, "Ahmed", was found in the Dead Sea Scrolls. This coincides with this verse in the Quran:

Recall that Jesus, son of Mary, said, "O Children of Israel, I am God's messenger to you, confirming the Torah and bringing good news of a messenger to come after me whose name will be even more praised (Ahmad)." 61:6

The Protection of the Quran from Corruption
Behold, it is We Ourselves who have gradually revealed this reminder, and, behold, it is We who shall truly guard it (from corruption). 15:9

No falsehood can approach it from before or behind it: It is sent down by One Full of Wisdom, Worthy of all Praise. 41:42

The Quran makes a claim no other religious text makes, that God Himself will keep its text safe from alteration.

The Ease of Memorizing the Quran
God has made the Quran easy to memorize: And in truth We have made the Quran easy to remember; who, then, is willing to take it to heart? 54:17

The ease with which Quran is memorized is inimitable. There is not a single scripture or religious text in the world that is as easy to memorize; even non-Arabs and children commit it to memory easily. The entire Quran is memorized by almost every Islamic scholar and hundreds of thousands of ordinary Muslims, generation after generation. Almost every Muslim has some portion of the Quran memorized to read in his prayers.

We thus revealed it, an Arabic Quran, and we cited in it all kinds of prophecies, that they may be saved, or it may cause them to take heed. 20:113
