    there are 360 bones as montioned in the quran , lately one british scientific discovered it but its already mentioned in quran 1400 years ago .

    • Ali says:

      Abd-allah. The prophet (PBUH) mentioned in a hadith that there is a 360 joints not bones. he was talking about joints.
      The prophet PBUH might have :

      1- Made an actual Scientific claim about the human body having 360 joints in it.
      2- Made a metaphoric claim, since the joints that are visible to us are only a handful (knees, elbows, knuckles, etc…), and medical technology back then did not exist.

      In either case, we will clearly see that the Prophet’s claims are in harmony with Science.
