Title: Qur'an & Modern Science : Compatible or Incompatible?
Author: Dr. Zakir Abdul Karim Naik
Genre: Religion / Science

The ultimate source of analysing Islam would be the text to which Muslims guide themselves, i.e. the Holy Qur'an. Dr Zakir studied the Qur'an thoroughly and matches the underlying message in the Qur'an to its corresponding evidence as uncovered by man in their scientific quests. It is very refreshing to know that the Qur'an has abundance of knowledge that is congruent to the scientific findings. It covers a wide range of subjects such as Astronomy, Physics, Geography, Geology, Oceanology, Biology, Botany, Zoology, Medicine, Physiology, Embryology and many more. The following highlights these various areas as mentioned in the Qur'an:
There are many more examples highlighted by Zakir in his publication and for both Muslims and non-Muslims, you will find it refreshing that a book aged 1400 years old (the Holy Qur'an) has already captured all such scientific facts that were only discovered by humans hundreds of years later. Such words of devine revelations must surely not come from humans unless we already have scientists back then. Did we? The Muslims believe that the Qur'an are the divinde words of God Almighty Himself (Allah). Most humans (non-Muslims) will try to find explanations other than God such as Erich Von Daniken in his book Chariots of the Gods. Erich explored the possibility of intelligent aliens who visited Earth thousands of years ago only to teach humans science and that those aliens were mistakenly regarded as Gods. Well, Erich, in his wisdom, failed to explore the possibility that all this, could be God Himself?
... refreshing that a book aged 1400 years old (the Holy Qur'an) has already captured all such scientific facts that were only discovered by humans hundreds of years later.
