"How many signs in the heavens and earth they pass by, yet they turn (their faces) away from them." (The Quran 12:105)

"By the sky full of path." (The Quran, 51:7)

The language of the Holy Quran is a miracle by itself. The Holy Quran describes various natural phenomenon in a language that covers a wide range of meaning and message. The earlier generations of the Muslims did not have the level of knowledge to appreciate these verses. We can now appreciate such Quran phrases as: the sky full of path, and the signs in the heavens as the facts of space which mankind has recently discovered. Furthermore, the Quran phrases: How many signs in the heaven they pass by can best be explained in terms of the recent travels of men into space.

The earlier generations of Muslims took these verses as the mysteries of the Holy Quran. Since they did not possess the level of knowledge needed to decipher these mysteries, they did not try to explain them. However, they did accept them as the words of Allah the Almighty. As the level of human knowledge advanced to new frontiers, later generations of Muslims explained these phenomena, and thus changed these mysteries to the facts of science and history. This is what makes the Holy Quran a living miracle for all generations of mankind. The Holy Quran has always excelled, and shall always excel the level of human knowledge. Every generation of mankind has discovered and shall keep on discovering new miracles in the Holy Quran.
