Islam Is Scientific
Dear Dr Ibrahim,
Many Libyan writer, written artical in this page about (The Quran) as book of of religion related to set of role by Allah to how we as Human pray and our relation to Allah as creator. But Allah Swbhanah, in the first Sura stress the importence of Knowledge and learning as method of consolidating our Eman, (Iqra=read) is the first word for the first Sura in Quran. In Quran versa (And I swear by the stars' positions-and that is a mighty oath if you only knew. (Qur'an, 56:75-76). We see the stars from Earth as very small objects and the distance seem short even some stars you can cover with your hand. For the Quran to state that the distance is very great between the stars to the degree that Allah swear by it means it is beyond Imagination of the people at that time. The greatest distance people at that time knew about was between Arabia and china, which can take up to 3 months to cross. So distance of (3 million light year) which is the shortest distance between two stars, is really great (Swbhan Allah). Here in this Versa (If you only know) which mean (Allah ask all human to study and learn the path to true knowledge). Another Versa in Quran (Say walk in Earth and see how the creation start (began)) here Allah Swbhanah ask us to think and search how the animal created and develop, which also call for learning.
وان لكم في الانعام لعبرة نسقيكم مما في بطونه من بين فرث ودم لبنا خالصا سائغا للشاربين
"And in the livestock there is a lesson for you: we provide you with a drink from their bellies. From the midst of digested food and blood, you get pure milk, delicious for the drinkers. (The Noble Quran, 16:66)"
in this versa (Allah Swbhanah) ask us to study (physiology) to be able to appreciate the true value of allah gift of milk. imagin from the digested food=stool come nice drink=milk. No one at the time of profet Mohamed (evenThe Greek physician Hippocrates ) knew that milk has relation with the digested food, or How the milk formed. The fact that Allah Swbhanah has told us about the finest details about the story of Yousef, call for us to study History to appreciate the true gift of Allah to the previous nation and How we can learn from thier fait.
We as Muslim should appreciate the greatest gift Allah has given us which to be muslim and we should try to be generous and spread islam to those people who do not know about islam by scientific method.
