Bird of PreyBirds of prey, or raptors, include species of bird that primarily hunt and feed on vertebrates that are large relative to the hunter. Additionally, they have keen eyesight for detecting food at a distance or during flight, strong feet equipped with talons for grasping or killing prey, and powerful, curved beaks for tearing flesh.
Most birds catch prey with their bills.
HawkingHawking is a feeding strategy in birds involving catching flying insects in the air... The term "hawking" comes from the similarity of this behavior to the way hawks take prey in flight, although, whereas raptors may catch prey with their feet, hawking is the behavior of catching insects in the bill.
Most birds catch prey with their bills, but raptors catch prey with their feet.
Raptors catch prey with their feet
So raptors catch prey with their feet, not their bills. This was known recently, however this was portrayed in the Quran 1400 years before it was discovered.
٣١ حُنَفَاءَ لِلَّهِ غَيْرَ مُشْرِكِينَ بِهِ ۚ وَمَنْ يُشْرِكْ بِاللَّهِ فَكَأَنَّمَا خَرَّ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ فَتَخْطَفُهُ الطَّيْرُ أَوْ تَهْوِي بِهِ الرِّيحُ فِي مَكَانٍ سَحِيقٍ
"Was snatched by the birds" since those birds attack humans then definitely these are flesh eating raptors. Moreover the Quran says humans are snatched, not eaten, in mid-air. If those birds snatch humans without eating them in mid-air then this means they use their feet. Today we know that raptors catch prey with their feet, not their bills.
How could an illiterate man who lived 1400 years ago have known that raptors catch prey with their feet?
The Quran (Koran, the book of Islam) contains scientific knowledge that could not have been known 1400 years ago. It ranges from basic arithmetics to the most advanced topics in astrophysics. You are invited to go through those miracles and judge for yourself.
