And when the heaven splitteth asunder and becometh rosy like red hide. Which is it, of the favours of your Lord, that ye deny? (Qur'an 55:37-38)
There are many Muslim webpages propagating one particular example of the miraculous scientific knowledge of the Qur'an, supposedly proven by a picture from the NASA Hubble Space Telescope on January 11, 1995, but having reached the attention of the Muslims apparently when it was the featured image at the NASA web site on October 31, 1999. Starting from that date, some Muslim discovered that this is may make a good miracle, spread the news and many have taken up the story.
This picture of the "Cat's Eye Nebula," taken on September 18, 1994, by the NASA Hubble Space Telescope is officially referred to as NGC 6543. Estimated to be 1,000 years old, the nebula is a visual "fossil record" of the dynamics and late evolution of a dying star. NGC 6543 is an exploding star 3,000 light-years away in the northern constellation Draco.
They should have called it the "Oily Red Rose Nebula." As the Quran states in Surat ar-Rahman (chapter 55), "When the sky is torn apart, so it was (like) a red rose, like ointment." How would the Quran know 1,400 years ago that when a star explodes, it is like a oily red rose?
We see it now in the years 1999/2000! and Quran mentioned it almost 1400 years ago.
It is amazing with regards how accurately the Quran describes these events some 1400 years ago.
