Who authored the Muslim book? on colors.
But! is the mention of Red color in this exact verse a coincidence? Do you see the point I’m trying to make. As this verse is detailing the spectrum of colors in a nutshell, the only accurate combination W. White, R. Red, B. Black had to line up. Of the other colors mentioned in Quran in multiple occurrences, unlike all others Red made it just once in the whole Quran right in that exact verse. This is undoubtedly one of the Quran miracles on colors.
If you are unlike many who are straight jacketed to spue drivels but if you are a serious seeker of evidence for or against belief then: I bet, the more you reflect and reread the verse 35.27 on colors the more you’ll realize the accuracy of information found in this verse as clear evidence for faith in God Almighty.
Quran 35:27 Do you not see that God sends down rain from the sky, and We (God) produce therewith fruits of varying colors? And in the mountains are tracts, white and red of varying shades and extremely black.
While you continue reading the Quran, it does mention a number of other colors, alluding Green to additive and Yellow towards subtractive scales: which emphasises Quran miracles on colors.
Quran 39:2 Do you not see that Allah sends down rain from the sky and makes it flow as springs [and rivers] in the earth; then He produces therewith crops of varying colors; then they dry and you see them turned yellow; then He makes them [scattered] debris. Indeed in that is a reminder for those of understanding.
White color is found when all the incident light is reflected away from a material, Black color is found when the incident light gets absorbed completely by a material. Remarkably Red color a primary participate in additive and subtractive combinations of colors resulting in various shades unlike any other primary color is unique.
It is interesting to note how Quran came to mention Red in particular while describing the spectrum of colors along with the information of its various shades adding up to White and subtracting down to extreme Black! Human or God? more than 1400 yrs now, since the Quran has documented this information. I would like to find out how uncommon it would be for someone to put this combination together while emphatically commenting on spectrum of colors in that age and time in history. Can anyone from the sciences of probabilities answer please? or will you concede this as one of the Quran miracles on colors.
In the popular RGB combination (spectrum nearing Black color is manifested due to the absence of detectable light in the Human eye pigments), While the popular in printing technology RYB combination (spectrum nearing towards White color gets manifested in the use of White sheets for printing). One may insist that this would be the expected type of science revelation in wait from God which could benefit Humans and therefore could suggest belief in such a God to us. But alas! This shows you aren’t reasoning well like God says, “they don’t really reason!”.
God puts things in very simple and straight words, why would you decipher these type of knowledge if you were teaching a people who weren’t conducting scientific research in printing technology on paper 14 centuries ago to help them understand out of the blue to make a color printer? which would be really redundant. God Almighty in his immense wisdom teaches Humans through research and effort in a subtle way. And then manifests his power to us by asking us to check our beliefs in the face of His revelation which contains morals and knowledge, such as this miracle of Red. Then He expects our minds to praise a good and moderate meaning out of his guidance and submit an acknowledgement for His existence. Among sensible opinions this ancient book is a sign to the modern world! in God’s own words burhaanum mirrabbikum (conclusive proof from your Lord).
