  • Islam In Brief

    Science and the Qur'an
      Along with the fact the Muhammad, peace be on him, was illiterate; he could neither read nor write, he grew up in Makkah where there were no schools, and he was far away from the scientific circles which existed in Syria, Alexandria, Athens and Rome. Moreover, the scientific facts mentioned in the Qur'an were not known in the seventh century. Having studied and examined the Arabic text of the Qur'an, Dr. Bucaille marvels: «I could not find a single error in the Qur'an. I had to stop and ask myself: if a man was the author of the Qur'an, how could he have written facts in the Seventh century A.D. that today are shown to be in keeping with modern scientific knowledge? I had too acknowledge the evidence in front of me: the Qur'an did not contain a single statement that was assailable from a modern scientific point of view. I repeated the same test for the Old Testament and the Gospels, always preserving the same objective outlook. In the former, I did not even have to go beyond the first book, Genesis, tb find statements totally out of keeping with the cast-iron facts of modern science». Dr. Bucaille studied many of the scientific facts that are mentioned in the Qur'an, such as the creation of the universe, and other topics including astronomy, animal and plant kingdoms, human reproduction and other related issues. For the sake of brevity, two of the above issues will be discussed in order to draw the reader's attention to one of the objectives of this booklet.
