The Iron: Part 1

Allah Almighty informs us , while teaching us, that Iron was actually descended from the sky and only came to form part of the Earth's make up after the spoken of descent, this is to say that it is a   principal component of a meteorite class known as siderites and is a minor constituent of the other two meteorite classes as science today explains in the following link .

Also in the following link details of element click here for Iron properties

 It is also a miracle  that this verse is in chapter 57 which represents the atomic weight(not the avg atomic weight but a stable middle isotope). The verse  which mentions the Iron is number 25 and the total number  of verses of this chapter is 29 thus  four(04) remaining  verses to end this magnificent chapter.

Also the number of neutrons 30 - 04 = gives 26 which is the atomic number of iron and the number of its protons

Allah (SWT) says in the Holy Book The  Quran :-

In The Name of Allah most Gracious most Merciful:

"we Verily sent our messengers with clear proofs, and revealed with them the Scripture and Balance, that mankind may observe right measure; and He revealed(descended) iron, wherein is mighty power and many uses for mankind,, and that Allah may know who helpth Him and His messengers, though unseen. Lo! Allah is Strong, Almighty."

Verily Allah Speaks the Truth.

From The holy Quran Chapter 57 Surat Al Hadeed (The  Iron) verse 25.
