The Holy Quran & Modern Science
Presented by Dr. Zakir Naik
Ever since the dawn of human life on this planet, Man has always sought to understand Nature, his own place in the scheme of Creation and the purpose of Life itself. In this quest for Truth, spanning many centuries and diverse civilizations, organized religion has shaped human life and determined to a large extent, the course of history. While some religions have been based on books, claimed by their adherents to be divinely inspired, others have relied solely on human experience.
Al-Quran, the main source of the Islamic faith, is a book believed by Muslims, to be of completely Divine origin. Muslims also believe that it contains guidance for all mankind. Since the message of the Quran is believed to be for all times, it should be relevant to every age. Does the Quran pass this test? Here, I intend to give an objective analysis of the Muslim belief regarding the Divine origin of the Quran, in the light of established scientific discoveries.
