In part II of this book series Logic and Islam, we answer the main question: can science prove that the Holy Quran is from Almighty God and has a divine origin? To answer this question, we gathered 77 scientific miracles from the Holy Quran. These miracles are scientific issues that have been revealed 1400 years ago and proven to be correct through our modern science and technology. We present each scientific issue from revelation and historical points of view, by comparing the year of its revelation with that of its discovery by modern science. The 77 scientific issues are grouped in six different categories: 1) astronomical issues, 2) earth science issues, 3) medical and biological issues, 4) animal and plant issues, 5) physics issues and 6) historical issues.
By using the theory of probability, we demonstrate that the possibility to predict all 77 issues correctly by chance is quasi-zero. In other words, if a human being tried to predict the 77 issues correctly, they would need an infinite number of trials. This provides solid proof that the Holy Quran could not have been written by a human being but that it should have been revealed by Almighty God.
The last chapter of this book is devoted to responding to the allegations of anti-Muslims about scientific mistakes in the Holy Quran. We prove that all these allegations are based on a pure misunderstanding of the actual meaning of the original Arabic Quran verses.
