Many things related to natural phenomena have been explained by the Qur'an and science, one of which is about the darkness in the deep sea, a region where humans will not be able to live.

In the deep sea itself, it also has big waves that are in the deepest location of the ocean, even light cannot reach them.

The sea itself has more area than the land on Earth. In the ocean there is a lot of life in the form of fish and other biota. In the sea there are also waves that have considerable strength.

Then modern science believes a depth of 200 meters under the sea can not be penetrated by light. This area is called aphotic. Meanwhile, below 1,000 meters there is no light at all.

This has long been revealed by the holy Koran. In the book 'The Koran vs. Modern Science According to Dr. Zakir Naik' by Ramadhani and his friends, it is explained that apart from being dark, there are also waves under the sea.

Waves that occur in the sea are not only found on the surface, but also on the inside. The fact that there is darkness and waves in the deep sea was put forward by researchers in 1900.

While in the holy book of the Qur'an, the darkness in the sea and the occurrence of waves in the sea have been explained, Allah SWT says:

اَوْ كَظُلُمٰتٍ فِيْ بَحْرٍ لُّجِّيٍّ يَّغْشٰـهُ مَوْجٌ مِّنْ فَوْقِهٖ مَوْجٌ مِّنْ فَوْقِهٖ سَحَابٌۗ ظُلُمٰتٌۢ بَعْضُهَا فَوْقَ بَعْضٍۗ اِذَآ اَخْرَجَ يَدَهٗ لَمْ يَكَدْ يَرٰىهَاۗ وَمَنْ لَّمْ يَجْعَلِ اللّٰهُ لَهٗ نُوْرًا فَمَا لَهٗ مِنْ نُّوْرٍ

"Or like darkness in a deep sea, covered by waves, above which waves (also), above (again) clouds; pitch black overlapping, when he raises his hand, he cannot see it, (and) Whoever is not given light (guidance) by Allah does not have the slightest light." (Surat an-Nur: 40)

Professor Durga Rao, a marine geologist who is also a professor at King Abdul Aziz University Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, said scientists agree with this.

In order to examine the darkness in the deep sea, scientists must be assisted with modern tools. At depths of more than 20-30 meters, humans will not be able to dive without aids.

At a depth of 200 meters, humans will not be able to survive. Professor Durga Rao said that Surah An-Nur Verse 40 refers mainly to the sea or the deep ocean.

The inside and outside of the sea are separated by waves. Deep sea waves cover the deep waters of the seas and oceans because deep waters have a higher density than the waters above them.

Darkness begins to fall beneath the deep waves of the sea. In fact, deep sea fish cannot see and the only source of light comes from their own bodies.

Professor Durga Rao then concluded by saying that normal humans would not have been able to explain this phenomenon in great detail 1,400 years ago.
