"Religion without science is blind and science without religion is lame," Albert Einstein.Islam and science are not different; the in fact they are one and the same. You can not have one without the other. Without science there is no Islam, and without Islam there is no science. This is the way Allah created it. Science goes to prove Islam, and therefore it is not in conflict with the laws of Islam. To prove Muhammad(pbuh) was a true Prophet, God revealed things to him to but into the Qur'an, hundreds of years before science would know about it. There are many examples of this throughout the Qur'an, every thing from: germs, mold, earth science, to the process of birth, and so much more. In fact the entire birth process was revealed by Muhammad(pbuh) 1100 years before science knew about it. People look at the Qur'an as a religious text only, when it is so much more.
"Do they not carefully consider (investigate) the Qur'an or are there locks upon their hearts." Qur'an 47:24
Dr. Moore was a former President of the Canadian Association of Anatomists, and of the American Association of Clinical Anatomists. He was honored by the Canadian Association of Anatomists with the prestigious J.C.B. Grant Award and in 1994 he received the Honored Member Award of the American Association of Clinical Anatomists "for outstanding contributions to the field of clinical anatomy."
He is or at least was a Christian when this book was written.
"O mankind! if ye have a doubt about the Resurrection, (consider) that We created you out of dust, then out of sperm, then out of a leech-like clot, then out of a morsel of flesh, partly formed and partly unformed, in order that We may manifest (Our Power) to you; and We cause whom We will to rest in the wombs for an appointed term, then do We bring you out as babes, then (foster you) that ye may reach your age of full strength; and some of you are called to die, and some are sent back to the feeblest old age, so that they know nothing after having known (much). And (further), thou seest the earth barren and lifeless, but when We pour down rain on it, it is stirred (to life), it swells, and it puts forth every kind of beautiful growth in pairs." Qur'an Al-Hajj verse 5
If you read the descriptions of birth, it is exactly as it happens. When the birth process starts, the embryo look like a blood clot, then a leech and feeds like a leech. It then goes on to say t it looks like a morsel of flesh what this means is; then the embryo looks like a piece of chewed meat. Actually it looks exactly as such, the best comparison in modern time is: a piece of chewed gum with teeth marks in it.
“But He fashioned him in due proportion, and breathed into him something of His spirit. And He gave you (the faculties of) hearing and sight and feeling (and understanding): little thanks do ye give!” Qur'an As-Sajda verse 9
Once again knowing the birthing process, you would know that in the beginning the human child in the womb is not proportioned well, until it is time for birth.
“Was he not a drop of sperm emitted (in lowly form)? Then did he become a clinging clot; then did (Allah) make and fashion (him) in due proportion.” Qur'an Al-Qiyama verse 37-38
The verses about the embryo are one of the favorites, but there are many many more verses, and scientific proofs in the Qur'an. So science is Islam and Islam is science. God created us all, and He created all that we love and do. He created us to be very intelligent, and He knew we would be bored without a means to understand God and his creation. He gave us science to better understand Him and to know more about ourselves and our environment, He did this knowing that we would love this and it would be a way for us to Glorify Him even further. To love Him more and to thank Him for giving us such a beautiful gift, and not only giving us a way to love it but to know it and understand it. As humans we are programed to be curious, and to seek answers to the questions of the universe. Many of us seek understanding everyday, we just want to know. The most commonly asked question is probably, "WHY?". We always want to know why.
