Comparing a single Quran note with an entire Guru Granth orchestra
"Ayse, i think you are referring to a single note and want us to be awed. The only reason for your overflowing confidence is due to your utter lack of knowledge about the Holy Scriptures from India. Muslims make mountains out of the molehills of the Quran, a centuries-old collective mindset that is the norm since all other Holy Scriptures and their founders/saints are rejected even though 123,974 of 124,000 prophets sent by Allah are still missing and have not been identified by Muslims for the last 14 centuries!"
WE LIVE IN AN EXPANDING UNIVERSE
47- With power did We construct heaven. Verily, We are expanding it. (51-The Dispersing, 47)
I am kind of a new member in here. Allah willing, I hope to contribute more realization of each of us with the articles I found out and while sending it to you all. I hope you enjoy reading the scientifically explanations of verses of Quran. I would like to send you all as much as possible in following days, the articles like this one. It is amazing and miraculous to see how scientifically the surahs/verses, the words of our Creator, was told to the messenger and so written by Creator's messenger Prophet Mohammad that in that time of the world. the time of Islam was sent, it was not possible to be known those scientific facts whereas those facts are found out in 20th or 21th century.

"Beginning with Adam, Islamic tradition asserts, God sends 124,000 prophets at various times and to every community to remind people of their obligation to the one and only sovereign Lord and warn them against heedlessness and disobedience. The Qur'an declares, `There is not a nation but that a warner was sent to it' (Q. 26:207)"
Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'an
(Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'an, Amana Corporation, 1989.)
Muslims unable to find even one of 123,974 missing prophets 14 centuries later
So if you and your fellow Muslims ever try reading what is written in the Vedas, Puranaas, Upanishads, Guru Granth and others, you will never again use words like "amazing" or "miraculous" to describe the Quran. It is embarrassing to just listen to a single note--Verse 47:51 (The Dispersing) "With power did We construct heaven. Verily, We are expanding it"--and think you are hearing an orchestra reaching a thunderous crescendo. It truly insults intelligence Ayse.
i am just appending 2 pages of the voluminous 1430 paged Guru Granth Sahib so that you may hear what is truly a magnum opus. Please understand that there many more musical scores in this Sikh holy scripture, tour de force scores that call for a standing ovation. (i do not even want to touch the Hindu scriptures as that will truly humble you and your fellow Muslims .......... provided you all do have the humility to accept the fact that except for eschatology, prophecy and the Sure Signs of Qiyamah, the Vedas, Puranaas, Upanishads, Guru Granth and others are far superior all-round. i am appending only two pages (below) to bring home that fact.
Note: BTW, the 2 pages below are pre-Big Bang (and the Guru Granth Sahib is without question a magnificent masterpiece of evolution)!
