1400 years ago the highest altitude a man could reach was the height that he could jump. But the Quran foretold that man someday will reach the sky.
وَمَا أَنْتُمْ بِمُعْجِزِينَ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَلَا فِي السَّمَاءِ ۖ وَمَا لَكُمْ مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ مِنْ وَلِيٍّ
You cannot escape (Allah’s might), on earth or in the sky; and you have no protector and no savior besides Allah.Quran 29:22
لَتَرْكَبُنَّ طَبَقًا عَنْ طَبَقٍ
Man will reach the sky.Quran 84:19
“Tabak طبق” is a noun meaning “layer”. From this came the myth of flying carpets; but today we know this is aircraft.
How could an illiterate man who lived 1400 years ago have known that man will reach the sky?
