Holy Quran on Prophecies
Selected Verses of the Holy Quran, 1988
Many of the earliest revealed chapters of the Quran cite various phenomena
as evidence in support of the cardinal doctrines and teachings of the
Quran. Some of these passages constitute prophecies, the fulfillment
of which has been witnessed in the course of the centuries. Often the
fulfillment is of the literal meaning, sometimes it is of the metaphorical
connotation, or it may be of both. As already explained, the very name
of the Book is a grand prophecy, the fulfillment of which has been witnessed
through the ages. The very first revelation announced the advent of
the age of learning through the extensive use of the pen (96:4-6).
