& End Notes
This is the everlasting, renewable, and living
proof. The Qur'aan is the eternal miracle in our hands until the Last Hour.
Fourteen hundred years ago, the Bedouin in the desert examined the Qur'aan and found in it
divine knowledge, which he recognized as from his Lord and which confirmed the veracity of
the message of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him (sallallahu alaihi wa
Today, scientists in the various disciplines of
natural sciences who study the Qur'aan find that this same divine knowledge, is providing
them with the same evidence and confirms that it is from the creator of the universe.
Likewise, the evidence confirms the genuineness of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him (sallAllahu
alaihi wa sallam). We have met with a number of these scientists, some of whom have
affirmed that this knowledge could not have come from a human source.
Professor Dorja Rao: It is difficult
to imagine that this type of knowledge was existing at that time, around 1400 years back.
Maybe some of the things they have simple ideas about, but to describe those things in
great detail is very difficult. So, this is definitely not a simple human knowledge.
Some of them say that this knowledge can
only be from outside of this universe.
Professor Armstrong: There may well have to be something beyond what we understand as ordinary
human experience to account for the writings that we have seen.
Professor Dorja Rao : So, I thought the information must have come from a supernatural source.
Some of them came forward fearlessly and
affirmed that this knowledge can only be from Allah Almighty, the Creator of the Universe.
from whom do you think is the source of such information?
Professor Hay: Well,
I think it must be the Divine Being.
Professor Kroner : ...modern scientific methods are now in a position to prove what Muhammad
said 1400 years ago.
Professor Marshall Johnson
: I see nothing here in conflict with the concept that divine
intervention was involved in what he was able to write.
Professor Shroeder : Actually, the scientists are now discovering what has been said before.
Professor Persaud : I have no difficulty in my mind in concerning that this is a divine
inspiration or revelation which led him to relay the statement.
Some of them concluded their affirmation
Professor Keith Moore
: It is clear to me that these statements must have come to Muhammad
from Allah, because almost all of this knowledge was not discovered until many
centuries later. This proves to me that Muhammad must have been a messenger of Allah.
Some of them declared the shahaadah and
Professor Tejasen : I think this is the time to say: There is no god worthy of worship except
Allah and that Muhammad is His Messenger!
There is no doubt that the Qur'aan is the
eternal miracle in our possession. Allah Almighty has said in the Qur'aan:
What thing is most weighty in evidence? Say: Allah is witness between me and you;
this Qur'aan has been revealed to me by inspiration. That I may warn you and all whom it
reaches. (Qur'aan 6:19).
Thus, whoever has been informed of this Qur'aan
likewise, bears the testimony and warning. The nature of this testimony is the scientific
affirmation that each verse in the book of Allah Almighty contains. Each verse
contains divine knowledge. In each century, scholars make new advances in their various
Allah Almighty has said:
Allah bears witness that what He has sent unto thee He has sent with His (Own) knowledge.
The Qur'aan is the miracle which renews itself
in a way which is appropriate for each epoch. Allah Almighty has said:
every prophecy is a limit of time, and soon shall you know it. (Qur'aan 6:67).
With This We Conclude And May Allah Almighty
Accept It As Done Sincerely For His Sake, Ameen
This epitaph is a
prayer said by Muslims upon mentioning or hearing the name of Muhammad peace be
upon him mentioned. It is most often translated as Peace Be Upon Him. However it
literally says 'May Allah Almighty make salaah and send salaam upon him' which
means: May Allah Almighty exalt the mention of Muhammad peace be upon him in
Heaven and make him free of all blame or harm.
Nearly every instance of a direct question
posed to a scientist throughout this book is that of Shaykh Abdul-Majeed Az-Zindani
The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was
unable to read or write and this adds to the miraculous nature of his prophesy and the
revelation of the Qur'aan and its composition in the highest form of Arabic
expression in addition to the knowledge it conveys which is not possible even from the
most erudite. His companions wrote down the revelation that came to him.
This book is a very useful book in that it
details many verses of a 'scientific' nature. Sometimes however, the author's
interpretations are not consistent with the understanding of the verse, such as pps. 167 -
69. Also, one of the last chapters, 'The Qur'an, the Hadiths, and Modern Science',
presents a very distorted view of hadeeth, and shows the author's unfamiliarity with the
subject. His stance towards the validity of hadeeth and the status of the Prophet
(sallalaahu 'alaihi wa salaam) is also not correct.
This, despite the fact that the theory of
evolution is in itself full of flaws and not without its problems. See FAQ
Such people feel that, in order to prove the
veracity of the Qur'aan, they must prove that everything that science talks about
must have already been discussed in the Qur'aan. However, the miraculous nature of
the Qur'aan does not need such whimsical verification.
Von Denffer, p. 157. In other words, there
are not scientific allusions buried under every third verse in the Qur'aan, waiting
to be unearthed by some over-zealous, highly imaginative Muslim!
