This is the truth

Here are some of the miracles of Muhammad in the Quran, since you don't believe the Quran is from God and that Muhammad wrote it

The Universe

1. Woven sky

By the sky (heaven) That is woven (full of paths) [quran 51:7]

Check the internet and look at the scientific pictures of the discover of paths in the universe between stars and galaxies

2. Expansion of universe

With power did We construct the heaven. Verily, We are Able to extend the vastness of space thereof. [quran 51:47]

God says in the quran that he is expanding the universe, look at the scientific researches that the universe is actually expanding

3. Location of the stars

So I swear by the locations of the stars (they traverse). [quran 56:75]

God swore by the location of the Star, not by the stars themselves, in many verses in the Quran God swore by the thing it self except in this verse he swore by the location of the stars, because what star we see in the sky has already past that location by millions millions of miles

4. Big bang theory

Have not those who disbelieve known that the heavens and the earth were joined together as one united piece, then We parted them? And We have made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe? [quran 21: 30]

God told us that the earth and the skies were joined and he parted them, the word used explained as tearing with great force.

5. The Rosette Nebula

When the Heaven shall be cleft asunder, and become rose red, like stained leather. [quran 55: 37]

Looking at the rosette Nebula, the verse in the Quran describes it exactly. look at the pictures in Wikipedia, cannot be seen by bare eyes

6. Giant star

When the sun wound round (and lost its light) and is overthrown.[quran 81: 1]

Eventually the sun will be a large round red star, the description is part of the description of the end of time that follows this verse.

7. rounding the earth

He (God) has created the heavens and the earth with truth. He makes the night roll over (to go in the day) and makes the day roll over (to go in the night). And He has subjected the sun and the moon. Each is running (on a fixed course) for an appointed term. Verily, He is the All-Mighty, the Oft-Forgiving. [quran 39: 5]

The above explains the rounding of the earth

8. shape of earth

And after that He Dahaha [egged] the earth; [quran 79: 30]

The shape of the Earth resembles the shape of an Ostrich Egg

Lane's Lexicon explains that the place where the ostrich lay its eggs is called Daha

Dahi refers to eggs, singular Dahyah - in North Africa they call Eggs "Dahi"

And the layers of Earth is similar to the layers of an egg, The Crust (The shell), The Core, (The Yolk), The Mantle (The white)

9. Sun and Moon

And has made the moon a light therein, and made the sun Siraj (a lamp with burning heat)? [quran 71: 16]

It is He Who made the sun a shining thing and the moon as a light and measured out its (their) stages, that you might know the number of years and the reckoning. Allah did not create this but in truth. He explains the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) in detail for people who have knowledge. [quran 10: 5]

The sun is explained as Siraj (meaning a lamp with light and heat) and the Moon is explained as Noor meaning just light without heat (The sun is a source and the moon is a reflection

it really puzzles me how did Muhammad know such information. a Bedouin living in the desert comes out with information not known to his people, the Christians, the Jews or to the Greek or Romans

I have plenty more, maybe 10 times more, if not more.
