Muslim believe that Quran is the whole truth from God.

A truth is something that can be verified by science as we know today or by a second source.

My question is, is there any truth in the holy Quran that is verifiable from a second source?

Is there anything that we didn't know before it, then Quran explained it and now we know it is the truth?

This is not a constructive way to ask a question, especially on here. You know your words are harsh, so choose better words. Please reword your question, perhaps "Does science support the Quran?" or "Is there any scientific proof of X in the Quran?". Please reword your question, then reopening can be considered. –  Mujahid مجاهد Feb 16 '13 at 0:05
    
@AlUmmatمجاهد The concept of my question is harsh that is there might be no truth in the holy Quran but if you are a true believer, and you believe everything is true, it would be very easy to answer. I did not use any harsh words anywhere. –  muslim1 Feb 16 '13 at 0:10
    
The way you word it, you can do better, make it sound less harsh. You can also be more specific, instead of asking whether the whole Quran can be verified by science, make it more specific, like "Can X from the Quran be verified". –  Mujahid مجاهد Feb 16 '13 at 0:17

It shouldn't be too hard to find a Muslim and a disbeliever, then interview them both until you're satisfied that they don't both worship the same thing. Thereby, the truth of Surat al-Kafirun has been verified. What are you even asking? –  goldPseudo Feb 16 '13 at 0:23
    
re-edited to make it slightly better. Basically I am looking for truth in Quran. Something that we did not know back then, Quran explained it and we now know it is the truth. Again sorry if my question hurt someone's feelings. –  muslim1 Feb 16 '13 at 0:28

If you really need only one example let me bring you one:

أَيَحْسَبُ الْإِنسَانُ أَلَّن نَّجْمَعَ عِظَامَهُ / بَلَىٰ قَادِرِينَ عَلَىٰ أَن نُّسَوِّيَ بَنَانَهُ

Does man think that We cannot assemble his bones? / Nay, We are able to put together in perfect order the very tips of his fingers. [75:3,4]

Certainly people of those time didn't know what is special about the finger print, did they?

Fingerprints is the oldest form of identification that we know today + the verse says 'fingertips' and not fingerprint. It clearly is not talking about the same thing. –  muslim1 Feb 16 '13 at 21:52
    
Sometimes I doubt if you are really seeking for the truth, sorry. "fingerprints is the oldest form of identification that we know today", is it then wrong? How much old? like thousands of years old or what? / Allah is addressing not only the body but also the finger tips, then a reader should ask what's special about the tip of the fingers, it is obviously talking about details compared to overall shape, so do you know any detailed shape other than fingerprint at the tip of your fingers? –  owari Feb 16 '13 at 22:08
    
@owari Actually Truth seeker is correct. The verse in Arabic doesn't refer to finger prints at all. the verse says: fingers which is a vague term that can mean anything. –  Sohaeb Feb 17 '13 at 4:13

@TheTruthSeaker the finger tips include the entire finger including the prints –  Islam Feb 17 '13 at 6:02
    
@Ali The very finger tips has stress on tips of the all fingers. in order again mean all fingers in order. It does not point to finger prints. Again finger tips is not close at all to finger prints. –  muslim1 Feb 17 '13 at 13:20

The question of Deen Al-Islam and its various belief systems like Belief in one one God alone,Quran, Messengers of God, life after death, heaven and Hell etc should not be measured in this kind of highly inferior empirical modern science we know today and hence such concepts do not even fall under the jurisdiction of science, as science is concerned only with classification and analysis of observed data, such data comes from our highly limited faculties. Even us and the source of these data are living in one highly controlled and isolated domain different from innumerable such domains(We live in a domain with space and time as two of the many dimensions).

So now the question arises as to which data is the best data or more appropriately which is the best knowledge certainly it has to be from the one who created us i.e God and hence revelation of God is the best knowledge. imperfect data and and the rules to evaluate those data also come from imperfect sources liable to err like human mind, poorly understood environment etc.

Coming to your question "Can Quran be verified by science" i would rather ask the reverse question: "Can any system be judged by Quran" " Because it is only illogical to evaluate the supernatural concepts with a knowledge base of noisy and faulty natural data, rather we judge worldly systems with the purest knowledge literally.

The holy Quran can shed some light on moon, sun, earth, lightning, rain etc which we now understand better. By reading such observations in Quran, we can confirm, it is the truth. –  muslim1 Jul 16 '13 at 23:25
