Surat Al-Ḥadīd ( ) (Iron) is the 57th sura of the Qur'an, with 29 Ayat.

Iron in the Qur'anEdit

Surat Al-Hadid is the 57th Surah of the Qur'an prefixed by the Basmala (the 9th. sura is not - see also Sunnan Abu Dawood ahadith 785-787). This sura is the only one named for a chemical element.

The word iron (Hadid) occurs 6 times in the Qur'an. The 6th occurrence of the word iron, and the only one in this sura, is in the 26th. Ayah (counting the Basmala (q.v.)).

The above-mentioned Ayah states: "...We sent down Iron, in which is (material for) mighty power, as well as many benefits for mankind...".

The only other chemical elements mentioned in the Qur'an are gold and silver as valuables (e.g. Sura 3, 14 & 9th. sura, 34), and copper in the context of molten brass or bronze (e.g. Sura 34, 12).
