  • The Qur’an and modern science, side by side
  • “It was in a totally objective spirit, and without any preconceived ideas, that I first examined the Qur’anic Revelation. I wanted to study the degree of compatibility between the Qur’anic text and the data of modern science…. It was only when I examined the text very closely in Arabic that I could record a list of them (such compatibilities), at the end of which I came to understand that the Qur’an did not contain a single statement that contradicted any modern scientific point of view.”

  • The Qur’an and its miraculous scientific nature
  • “The Holy Qur’an contains clear verses on natural sciences, as indicated by Professor Yousef Marwa in his book Natural sciences in the Quran. It amounted exactly to (774) verses, detailed as follows: mathematics (61), physics (264), atoms (5), chemistry (29), relativity (62), astronomy (100), climatology (20), aquaculture (14), space science (11), zoology (12), agronomy (21), biology (36), geography(73), anthropology (10), geology (20), cosmology and the history of cosmic events (36).”
