To attribute the presence of scientific facts in he Qur'an to coincidence would be against common sense and scientific approach. The Qur'an invites all humans to reflect on the Creation of this universe in the verse:
"Behold! In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the alternation of Night and Day - there are indeed Signs for men of understanding." [Al-Qur'an 3:190]
The scientific evidences of the Qur'an clearly prove its Divine Origin. No human could have produced a book, 1400 years ago, that would contain profound scientific facts, to be discovered by humankind centuries later.
The Qur'an, however, is not a book of Science but a book of 'Signs'. These signs invite man to realize the purpose of his existence on earth, and to live in harmony with Nature. The Qur'an is truly a message from Allah, the Creator and Sustainer of the universe. It contains the same message of the Oneness of God, which was preached by all prophets, right from Adam, Moses, Jesus to Muhammad (peace be upon them).
Several detailed books have been written on the subject of Qur'an and modern science and further research in this field is on. Inshallah, this research will help mankind to come closer to the Word of the Almighty. This write up contains only a few of the scientific facts present in the Qur'an. We cannot claim to have done full justice to the subject.
Prof. Tejasen accepted Islam on the strength of just one scientific 'sign' mentioned in the Qur'an. Some people may require ten signs while some may require hundred signs to be convinced about the Divine Origin of the Qur'an. Some would be unwilling to accept the truth even after being shown a thousand signs. The Qur'an condemns such a closed mentality in the verse:
"Deaf, dumb and blind, they will not return (to the path)." [Al-Qur'an 2:18]
The Qur'an contains a complete code of life for the individual and society. Alhamdulillah (Praise be to Allah), the Qur'anic way of life is far superior to the 'isms' that modern man has invented out of sheer ignorance. Who can give better guidance than the Creator Himself?
We pray that this humble effort is accepted by Allah, to whom we pray for mercy and guidance (Aameen).
