Scientists on the Quran + Muslim Scientists


Scientist on the Quran - Islam


Seeking knowledge is obligatory in Islam for every Muslim, man and woman. The main sources of Islam, the Quran and the Sunnah (Prophet Muhammad's traditions), encourage Muslims to seek knowledge and be scholars, since this is the best way for people to know Allah (God), to appreciate His wondrous creations and be thankful for them.

Muslims have always been eager to seek knowledge, both religious and secular, and within a few years of Muhammad's mission, a great civilization sprang up and flourished. The outcome is shown in the spread of Islamic universities; Al-Zaytunah in Tunis, and Al-Azhar in Cairo go back more than 1,000 years and are the oldest existing universities in the world. Indeed, they were the models for the first European universities, such as Bologna, Heidelberg, and the Sorbonne. Even the familiar academic cap and gown originated at Al-Azhar University.

Muslims made great advances in many different fields, such as geography, physics, chemistry, mathematics, medicine, pharmacology, architecture, linguistics and astronomy. Algebra and the Arabic numerals were introduced to the world by Muslim scholars. The astrolabe, the quadrant, and other navigational devices and maps were developed by Muslim scholars and played an important role in world progress, most notably in Europe's age of exploration.

Muslim scholars studied the ancient civilizations from Greece and Rome to China and India. The works of Aristotle, Ptolemy, Euclid and others were translated into Arabic. Muslim scholars and scientists then added their own creative ideas, discoveries and inventions, and finally transmitted this new knowledge to Europe, leading directly to the Renaissance. Many scientific and medical treatises, having been translated into Latin, were standard text and reference books as late as the 17th and 18th centuries.


In Islam, the human body is a source of appreciation, as it is created by Almighty Allah (God). How it functions, how to keep it clean and safe, how to prevent diseases from attacking it or cure those diseases, have been important issues for Muslims.

Ibn Sina (d. 1037), better known to the West as Avicenna, was perhaps the greatest physician until the modern era. His famous book, Al-Qanun fi al-Tibb, remained a standard textbook even in Europe, for over 700 years. Ibn Sina's work is still studied and built upon in the East.

Prophet Muhammad himself urged people to "take medicines for your diseases", as people at that time were reluctant to do so. He also said,

"God created no illness, except that He has established for it a cure, except for old age. When the antidote is applied, the patient will recover with the permission of God."

Since the religion did not forbid it, Muslim scholars used human cadavers to study anatomy and physiology and to help their students understand how the body functions. This empirical study enabled surgery to develop very quickly.

Al-Razi, known in the West as Rhazes, the famous physician and scientist, (d. 932) was one of the greatest physicians in the world in the Middle Ages. He stressed empirical observation and clinical medicine and was unrivalled as a diagnostician. He also wrote a treatise on hygiene in hospitals. Kahaf Abul-Qasim Al-Sahabi was a very famous surgeon in the eleventh century, known in Europe for his work, Concession (Kitab al-Tasrif).

Other significant contributions were made in pharmacology, such as Ibn Sina's Kitab al-Shifa' (Book of Healing), and in public health. Every major city in the Islamic world had a number of excellent hospitals, some of them teaching hospitals, and many of them were specialized for particular diseases, including mental and emotional. The Ottomans were particularly noted for their building of hospitals and for the high level of hygiene practiced in them.

Imam of Ka’ba leads thousands in Maghrib Prayer at Jama Masjid Delhi

By TCN Staff Reporter,
New Delhi: For one, it looked today was Eid. The historic grand Shahjahani Masjid of Delhi, popularly known as Jama Masjid, was packed more than capacity. The occasion was the presence of the Imam of Grand Haram Sharif of Makkah Shaikh Abdur Rahman Al-Sudais. He led thousands in the Maghrib Prayer at the mosque.

The Imam is in India for a week, and it seems for the common Muslims here the touch of faith runs deeper. Wherever he goes thousands and thousands turn up to hear him and to offer prayer behind him.

On Friday he was at Darul Uloom Deoband where he led the Juma Prayer. On Saturday he led about 50 thousand people at Maghrib Prayer in New Delhi at a conference on Sahaba (companions of the Prophet) organized by the Jamiat Ulama faction led by Arshad Madani.

And today he was at the Jama Masjid. To see him and to offer prayer behind him, Muslims gathered from across the city and neighborhood. Before the prayer the Imam of Ka’ba addressed the gathering. In his speech he stressed the need of unity among the Muslim Ummah on the globe.

Tonight Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman K Rahman Khan is hosting dinner for the Imam. Tomorrow he will be attending a program at India Islamic Cultural Center.

Saudi Arabia admits invading Bahrain

Saudi Arabia admits invading Bahrain

Saudi Troops invade Bahrain as Pro-democracy Protests escalate

Saudi Arabia says it has responded to a "security threat" in neighboring Bahrain by staging a 1,000-troop invasion in an attempt to quell escalating anti-government protests.

"The council of ministers has confirmed that it has answered a request by Bahrain for support," Riyadh said in a statement carried by SPA state news agency.

It said that under an agreement of the six-country [Persian] Gulf Cooperation Council, "any harm done to the security of a member state is considered a harm done to the security of all members."

A Saudi official said Monday that more than 1,000 troops, part of the Persian Gulf countries' Peninsula Shield Force, had entered Bahrain.

This came as Bahrain's opposition said it considered any foreign military intervention to be an occupation.

"We consider the arrival of any soldier, or military vehicle, into Bahraini territory.... an overt occupation of the kingdom of Bahrain and a conspiracy against the unarmed people of Bahrain," said an opposition statement.

It called on the international community to act to ensure the "protection of the people of Bahrain from the danger of foreign military intervention."

Meanwhile, Bahraini protesters are gathering in Pearl Square to protest against the occupation.

The Saudi intervention comes two days after US Defense Secretary Robert Gates visited Manama and held talks with King Hamada bin Isa Al Khalifa.

Gates said he urged the king to undertake rapid and significant reform.
