Miracle Of Iron’s Origin In Quran
Stars Are Like Factories
When the universe created, there was just hydrogen and a little helium and very little of Lithium. Stars are like factories, everything else is produced in the stars like carbon, oxygen iron, etc. It works just like layers in an onion. First Hydrogen having one proton in its nucleus starts burning by Fusion under immense pressure and some 15 million Celsius temperature, and it produces two things energy and heavier element helium with two protons in its nucleus. Then helium being heavier collects in the center and it also goes into Fusion and produces energy and Carbon and Oxygen. The process goes on and heavier elements like carbon go into Fusion to produce other elements until it reaches to Iron which has 26 protons in its nucleus. Here the Fusion stops as Iron does not go into Fusion and it keep on collecting in the center of the star until all its resources get consumed.
Iron Is Not Native
The heavier elements like Iron, Carbon, Sulphur, Gold, and others do not belong to Earth
. Not only this, they do not even belong to our solar system
as these elements could only produce inside the core of a star many times bigger than the size of our sun
Iron and most of the heavy elements on Earth came from the collapse of some star which exploded and threw out its material
. Such a star is called super Nova
, the death of a star and birth of something new. The blast usually is so powerful that it forces more heavy elements like gold, lead, platinum to produce. And this is fortunate for us as we could not be here if such things have not been happening.
Now look what the Quran says 1400 years ago in Surah Hadid Verse 25.
٢٥ لَقَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا رُسُلَنَا بِالْبَيِّنَاتِ وَأَنْزَلْنَا مَعَهُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْمِيزَانَ لِيَقُومَ النَّاسُ بِالْقِسْطِ ۖ وَأَنْزَلْنَا الْحَدِيدَ فِيهِ بَأْسٌ شَدِيدٌ وَمَنَافِعُ لِلنَّاسِ وَلِيَعْلَمَ اللَّهُ مَنْ يَنْصُرُهُ وَرُسُلَهُ بِالْغَيْبِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ قَوِيٌّ عَزِيزٌ
Indeed We sent Our Messengers with Clear Signs, and sent down with them the Book and the Balance that people may uphold justice. And We sent down Iron, wherein there is mighty power and many benefits for people, so that Allah may know who, without even having seen Him, helps Him and His Messengers. Surely Allah is Most Strong, Most Mighty. Surah Hadid 57:25
