The Quran says that a day of the Lord is like a thousand years of what we count. Some propagandists of "miracles in the Quran" are claiming that this means that the author of the Quran knew about Einstein's relativity and therefore the author of the Quran could not be Muhammad who lived 1400 years ago.

The verse

And they urge you to hasten the punishment. But Allah will never fail in His promise. And indeed, a day with your Lord is like a thousand years of those which you count.


Similar content was in the Old Testament, therefore if this is a miracle, then it is a miracle of the Bible:

A prayer of Moses the man of God.

Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations.

Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.

You turn men back to dust, saying, "Return to dust, O sons of men."

For a thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night.
The Bible, Psalm 90
