Scientists' Comments on the Scientific Miracles in the Holy Quran

Scientists' Comments on the Scientific Miracles in the Holy Quran:

The following are some comments of scientists on the scientific miracles in the Holy Quran. All these comments has been taken from the video tape This is the Truth. In this videotape you can see and hear the scientists while they are giving their following comments.

1) Dr. T.V.N. Persaud is a Professor of Anatomy and Head of the Department of Anatomy, and a Professor of Pediatrics and Child Health, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. He is well known in his field. He is the author or editor of 25 books, and has published over 181 scientific papers. In 1991, he received the most distinguished award presented in the field of anatomy in Canada, the J.C.B. Grant Award from the Canadian Association of Anatomists. When he was asked about the scientific miracles in the Quran, which he has researched, he stated the following:

"It seems to me that Muhammad was a very ordinary man. He could not read or write. In fact, he was illiterate. We are talking about fourteen hundred years ago. You have someone who was illiterate making profound pronouncements and statements and that are amazingly accurate about scientific nature. I personally cannot see how this could be a mere chance There are too many accuracies and, like Dr. Moore, I have no difficulty in my mind in concerning that this is a divine inspiration or revelation which led him to these statements."

Professor Persaud has included some Quranic verses and Prophet Muhammadís (Peace Be Upon Him) sayings in some of his books. He has also presented these verses and Prophet Muhammadís (Peace Be Upon Him) sayings at several conferences.

2) Dr. Joe Leigh Simpson is a Professor and Chairman of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas, USA. He was Professor and Chairman of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Tennessee, Memphis, Tennessee, USA. He is President of the American Fertility Society. He has received many awards, including the Association of Professors of Obstetrics and Gynecology Public Recognition Award 1992. Professor Simpson studied the following two sayings of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him):

"In every one of you, all components of you creation are collected together in your motherís womb by forty days..."

"If forty-two nights have passed over the embryo, Allah sends an angel to it, who shapes it and create its hearing, vision, skin, flesh, and bones. Then he says, "O Lord, is it male or female?" and your Lord decides what He wills..."

He studied these two Prophet Muhammadís (Peace Be Upon Him) sayings extensively, noting that the first forty days constitute a clearly distinguishable stage of embryo-genesis. He was particularly impressed by the absolute precision and accuracy of those sayings of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him). Then during one conference he gave the following opinion:

"So that the two Hadeeths (the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad) that have been noted can provide us with a specific time table for the main embryological development before forty days. Again, the point was been made repeatedly by other speakers this morning that these Hadeeths could not have been obtained on the basis of the scientific knowledge that was available at the time of their recording.... It follows, I think, that not only there is no conflict between genetics and religion, but in fact religion can guide science to be valid, which supports knowledge in the Quran having been derived from God."

3) Dr. E. Marshall Johnson is a Professor and Chairman of the Department of Anatomy and Developmental Biology, and Director of the Daniel Baugh Institute, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. He has authored more than 200 publications. He was president of the Teratology Society. In 1981, during the Seventh Medical Conference, in Dammam, Saudi Arabia, Professor Johnson said in his presented research:

"In summary, the Quran describes not only the development of external form, but emphasizes also the internal stages, the stages inside the embryo, of its creation and development, emphasizing major events recognized by contemporary science... As a scientist, I can only deal with things, which I can specifically see. I can understand embryology, developmental biology. I can understand the words that are translated to me from the Quran. As I gave the example before, if I was to transpose myself into the era, knowing that I knew today in describing things, I could not describe the things, which were described. I see no evidence for the fact to refute the concept that this individual, Muhammad, had to be developing this information from some place. So I see nothing here in conflict with the concept that divine intervention was involved in what he was able to write"

4) Dr William W. Hay is a professor of Oceanography, University of Colorado, Boulder, Colorado, USA. He is a well-known marine scientist. After a discussion with Professor Hay about the Quranís mention of recently discovered facts on seas, he said:

"I find it very interesting that this sort of information is in the ancient scriptures of the Holy Quran, and I have no way of knowing where they would come from, but I think it is extremely interesting that they are there and this work is going on to discover it, the meaning of some of the passages." And when he was asked about the source of the Quran. He replied: "Well, I would think it must be the divine being."

5) Dr. Gerald C. Goeringer is a Professor and Coordinator of Medical Embryology in the Department of Cell Biology, School of Medicine, Georgetown University, Washington DC, USA. During the Eighth Saudi Medical Conference in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Professor Goeringer stated the following in the presentation of his research paper:

"In relatively few Aayahs ( Quranic verses) is contained a rather comprehensive description of human development from the time of the commingling of the gametes through organogenesis. No such distinct and complete record of human development such as classification, terminology, and description existed previously. In most, if not all, instances, this description antedates by many centuries the recording of the various stages of human embryonic and fetal development recorded in the traditional scientific literature."

6) Professor Yushudi Kusan is the Director of the Tokyo Observatory, Japan, He said:

"I am very much impressed by finding true astronomical facts in Quran, and for us modern astronomers have been studying very small piece of the universe. We have concentrated our efforts for understanding of very small part. Because by using telescopes, we can see only few parts of the sky without thinking about the whole universe. So, by reading Quran and by answering to the questions, I think I can find my future way for investigation of the universe."

7) Dr. Tejatat Tejasen is presently the chairman of the Department of Anatomy and is the former Dean of the faculty of Medicine, University of Chiang Mai, Chiang Mai, Thailand. During the Eighth Saudi Medical Conference in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Dr. Tejasen stood up and said:

"In the last three years, I became interested in the Quran.... From my study and what I have learned throughout this conference, I believe that everything that has been recorded in the Quran fourteen hundred years ago must be the truth that can be proved by the scientific means. Since the Prophet Muhammad could neither read nor write, Muhammad must be a messenger who relayed this truth which was revealed to him as an enlightenment by the one who is eligible creator. This creator must be God, or Allah. I think this is the time to say La ilaha illa Allah, that is no god to worship except Allah (God), Muhammad rasoolu Allah, Muhammad is Messenger (Prophet) of Allah (God). Lastly, I must congratulate for the excellent and highly successful conference. I have learned not just from the scientific knowledge in the conference but also the great chance of meeting many new scientists and making many new friends among the participants. The most precious thing that I have gained from coming to this conference is La ilaha illa Allah, Muhammad rasoolu Allah, and to have become a Muslim."

After all these examples we have seen about the scientific miracles in the Holy Quran and all these scientistsí comments on this, let us ask ourselves these questions:

  • Could it be a coincidence that all this recently discovered scientific information from different fields was mentioned in the Quran, which was revealed fourteen centuries ago?
  • Could this Quran have been authored by Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) or by any other human being?

The only possible answer is that this Quran must be the literal word of Allah, revealed by Him.
