Surat ar Rum:
The Byzantines have been defeated, In the nearest land. But they, after their defeat, will overcome Within three to nine years. To Allah belongs the command before and after. And that day the believers will rejoice. In the victory of Allah . He gives victory to whom He wills, and He is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful.
That points the conclusion of hundreds years of war between byzantines(roman empire) and Persians. At the beginning of 7th century, persians invaded parts of syria and Anatolia, the ‘’nearest lands’’ in this surah. They conquerd the Damascus in 613, and Jerusalem in 614. Egypt surrendered to them in 615-616. They even sieged the Constantinople, capital of roman empire. İt was the common belief that the byzantine empire was going to collapse soon. Muslims’ number were very few and they very powerless against the enormous hostility towards them in Mecca. They wanted the byzantines to win against persians because they were worshipping to one god and following the Jesus who is one of the 5 great one among all prophets. People of Mecca laughed at Muhammad(pbuh) because he said that byzantines are going to be victorious. İn 622, which was 7 years later that this quran said romans will win, Roman emperor Heraclius defeated Persians at battle in Issus. Until 624 war continued at persian lands. İn december of 626, romans defated the persians very heavily…

Surat al Fath,27-28: [/B]Certainly has Allah showed to His Messenger the vision in truth. You will surely enter al-Masjid al-Haram, if Allah wills, in safety, with your heads shaved and [hair] shortened, not fearing [anyone]. He knew what you did not know and has arranged before that a conquest near [at hand]
Masjid al haram is the name of Kabah in Mecca. Only one year after the coming of that verse; Muslims conqured the Mecca, without any bloodshed.

Surat an Nur, 55: Allah has promised those who have believed among you and done righteous deeds that He will surely grant them succession [to authority] upon the earth just as He granted it to those before them and that He will surely establish for them [therein] their religion which He has preferred for them and that He will surely substitute for them, after their fear, security, [for] they worship Me, not associating anything with Me. But whoever disbelieves after that - then those are the defiantly disobedient.
That verse came at a time in which Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) has declared newly that he is a prophet of god. And muslims were very few and powerless even against the hostility and murders and tortures of the folk of their own city, Mecca. So how did Muhammad(pbuh) knew that islam will take over the World very soon?

Surat al Alaq 1-5: Recite in the name of your Lord who created -Created man from a clinging substance, Recite, and your Lord is the most Generous, Who taught by the pen -Taught man that which he knew not.
The ‘’clinging substance’’ in this verse, is recited as the Word ‘’Alaq’’ which gives the surah its name. These 5 verses also the very first verses of quran that given to our prophet by god via the Angel Gabriel. Alaq means ‘’ A small part of meat that sticks’’ in arabic. İsn’t that the stage of the human embryo that sticks to Wall of uterus?

Surat al Dhariyat, 47: And the heaven We constructed with strength, and indeed, We are [its] expander.
According to big bang theory, universe is still expanding…

THE Name of ‘’Haman’’:
Surat al Qasas: 28: And Pharaoh said, "O eminent ones, I have not known you to have a god other than me. Then ignite for me, O Haman, [a fire] upon the clay and make for me a tower that I may look at the God of Moses. And indeed, I do think he is among the liars."
Surat al Gafir 36: And Pharaoh said, "O Haman, construct for me a tower that I might reach the ways - The ways into the heavens - so that I may look at the deity of Moses; but indeed, I think he is a liar." And thus was made attractive to Pharaoh the evil of his deed, and he was averted from the
way. And the plan of Pharaoh was not except in ruin.
The french scientist Dr Maurice Bucaile wrote a book named ‘’moses and egypt’’. İn that book, dr Maurice tells that the name of ‘’ haman’’ was written in the quran, that the objections which are made at past, to the way that quran uses the name of haman’’ and how the scientific findings proved that the quran used that name exactly the right way.
The name ‘’haman’’ was also written on Torah, but in the torah Haman is a persian ruler, not the same person Quran told. So, at the past, some christian scholars claimed that Prophet muhammad has copied that name from the Torah, but he copied it wrong.
The french archelogist Jean François Champollion has discovered a hieroglyph called Rosetta Stone. Some name lists could be taken from that new-found hieroglyph. At the new eyptian kingdom name lists, the name Haman was written as the chief of the stone-workers.At the Hof Museum in vienna, it is told that haman was very close to the Paraoh. (Walter Wreszinski, Aegyptische Inschriften aus dem K. K. Hof Museum in Wien, 1906, J. C. Hinriesche Buchhandlung). ( Herman Renke; Die Aegyptischen Personnennamen, Vierzeischnis der namen, Verlag Von J. J. Augustin in Glückstadt, Band I, 1935)
Maurice Bucaille gave the name ‘’HAMAN’’ to a french archelogist and told that this name is from a 7th century arabic hand-writing(he does not give the name of quran on purpose just to see his reaction) .The french archeologist told that it is impossible that a 7th century arabic handwriting contains any information about hiyeroglyphs of egypt. Nonetheless, he said that he will check the name list of Pharaoh’s palace( which was taken from hieroglyphs) and recommend to Maurice Bucaille look into ‘’ Dictionary of Personal Names of the New Kingdom by Ranke" Bucaille found out that Haman was the chief of the stone-workers by looking into german hieroglyph transliteration list. Moreover, the name ‘’haman’’ was aslo written on a monument that was taken to Vienna.

FEMALE HONEYBEE, BUILDER OF HER OWN CELL:
And your Lord revealed the female honeybee; build homes in mountains, and trees, and in the hives people built for you. (16:68)
In narrating the doings of the honeybee, the Quran uses the feminine gender. In Arabic, verbs are conjugated according to gender. The use in the Quran of the feminine gender in conjugation shows that the acts were performed by the female bee. To translate the honeybee in question with the addition of the adjective “female” before the honeybee would be natural. (It should be noted however that the orthography of both the feminine and the masculine is the same for honeybee.) The working of the female honeybee is described in the Quran as follows:

GEOIDAL FORM OF THE WORLD

79:30: And after that He spread the earth.
The Arabic word “dahw” means rotundity like that of the ostrich’s egg. The above verse was also interpreted to refer to the shaping of the earth in the form of an ostrich egg. Prof. Dr. Suleyman Atefl, former head of Religious Affairs in Turkey, gives the following definition of the word, based on the famous Arabic dictionary Lisan u’l Arab: “The word ‘dahw’ means to spread out, giving (something) a round shape.” The word “dahw” had also been defined as a game played with walnuts. Derived from the same stem, the word “medahi” referred to round stones. Despite the meaning of rotundity concealed in words derived from the word “dahw” there have been translators for whom a spherical earth was difficult to conceive, who had to translate it as “to spread out.” The actual shape of the earth does have the shape of an ostrich egg. Thus the shape of the earth is spheroid with depressions at the poles. The exact figure of the earth which had posed a problem throughout history was established by the Quran.​

DIAMETERS OF THE EARTH AND SPACE:
O society of jinns and men, cross the diameters of the heavens and the earth, if you have the ability, then pass beyond them. But you cannot, unless you acquire an authorization. (55:33)
The Arabic word for diameter is “kutr” of which the plural is “aktar;” this refers to the fact that the heavens and the earth have a plurality of diameters. The Arabic language has a special plural to express “duality;” the word aktar expresses a magnitude superior to one or two. We must be careful in the case of three-dimensional objects; “diameter” exists only in spheroid figures. In the case of a perfect sphere we cannot speak of a plurality of diameters, for, in a perfect sphere, there can be only one diameter. We observe in the verse the use of the plural, which is remarkable.

WELL PROTECTED ROOF
And We made the sky a well protected roof. Still they turn away from its signs. (21: 32)

THE UNIVERSE IN GASEOUS STATE
Then He turned to the heavens, and it was in a gaseous state. And said to it, and the earth; “Come into existence, willingly or unwillingly.” They said, “We come willingly.” (41:11)

THE POINT OF DEPARTURE OF OUR ODYSSEY
Do not these disbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were an integrated mass, which We then split, and from water We made all living things? Will they not believe even then? (21:30)

ALL AFLOAT IN ORBITS
It is He who created the night and the day, and the sun, and the moon; each of them floating in an orbit. (21: 33)

IDENTITY ON FINGER TIPS
Does the human being think that We cannot assemble his bones? (75:3)
Surely, We are able to reconstruct even his fingertips. (75:4)


HANGING ON THE WALL OF UTERUS
Then We placed him as a drop in a firmly established lodging(23:13)
Then We developed the drop into a hanging…(23:14)



At the last era of the Ottoman Empire, an english statesman called a question to an islamic scholar: you muslims say that everything can be found in Quran. But, every scientific invention that is found on last centuries came from the West. if everything can be found in quran, then why havent you made that inventions? İslamic scholar answered that question like this: first reason: Quran also posses a role to support the prophethood of muhammad. So if quran states everything in detail, people of the 6-7th century would not understand that and abondon muhammad. Second reason: Prophet muhammad lived a limited life, like all of us. His life span was limited. So the quran, which was send by allah to his prophet through a 23 years of time, can not state everything in detail, that would be impossible in a short time like 23 years. Third reason is that: if quran states everything in a way that everyone can understand, evil people might use these knowledge against the humanity. So there are some keys to understand that knowledge and that key is given to very few…

Again, quite well put! I looked up all the references in Ali's THE HOLY QURAN (he speaks to a westerner better than most translations I have read).

Assalamu alaikum/peace to everyone!

May I recommend the book by Dr. Maurice Bucaille "The Qur'an, The Bible and Science." Although he compares the two scriptures to emphasize that one corrects the other, he does mention many facts from the Qur'an regarding science and is worth a read.

My native language is Bosnian and I find that the Bosnian translations of interpretations of the Holy Qur'an's meaning is much better, logical and easier to understand than English. Even Ali's English interpretation is not as good. So sometimes, I use both English and Bosnian translations to gain better understanding of Qur'anic verses.

For example, many proponents of reincarnation proof from Qur'an quote this ayat: "Allah is Him Who created you, then after supplied you , later on takes your life , and later on brings you to back to the life once again. Is there any of your godlike partners who would be able to do such a thing for you?! Purity and Supremacy to Him Who is beyond what you take as His partner." To some the English translation may allude to more than one human life on Earth, but in Bosnian translation it is clear that this verse is in reference to the Day of Resurrection that is immediately followed by Judgment.
