I urge everyone who reads articles on islaicity website to read the information given here. It is a nice thing to learn that NASA has discovered things that already mentioned in the Quran that was revealed and uttered by our prophet (PBUH) more than 14 centuries ago! I had some friends that told me these things can be predicted and was guessed by others in early history. Well, how many times can you guess and be 100 % accurate everytime? once , twice, three time? Thare are more than 6,000 verses in the Quran, one-6th of them are scientific in nature that can not be explianed but with the use of sophisticated instrumentation. May God bless the readers and the people with minds and who contemplate.

Ramadan Karim to all Muslims

Ramadan Mubarak!
