Dubai Meet to Highlight Scientific Facts in the Qur’an

Abdul Ghafour

Arab News

JEDDAH, 21 March 2004 — More than 150 scientists and researchers will take part in the Seventh International Conference on Scientific Miracles in the Holy Qur’an to open in Dubai tomorrow.

Sheikh Muhammad ibn Rashid Al-Maktoum, the crown prince of Dubai and the United Arab Emirate defense minister, will open the three-day event aimed at highlighting the scientific facts in the Qur’an.

The Dubai International Prize for the Holy Qur’an and the Makkah-based International Organization for Scientific Miracles in the Qur’an and Sunnah, an affiliate of the Muslim World League, jointly organized the conference.

According to Dr. Abdullah Al-Musleh, secretary-general of the Makkah-based organization, more than 20 non-Muslim scientists from the United States, Britain, Russia, Japan, Australia and other countries will be taking part in the deliberations.

The Saudi organization has embarked on a project to publish an encyclopedia on scientific miracles in the Qur’an. It will contain studies on 1,300 verses of the Qur’an and more than 7,000 sayings of the Prophet (peace be upon him).

“We are also planning to translate some of the research works on the topic to different international languages,” Musleh said.

The organization also publishes three magazines and has produced videos in many languages, including English, French, Urdu and Turkish.

Musleh emphasized the importance of highlighting the scientific facts in the Qur’an and Sunnah and said it would accelerate the spread of Islam.

He announced his organization’s plan to hold similar conferences in the future. The previous conferences were held in Pakistan, Egypt, Senegal, Moscow, Indonesia and Lebanon.

Although the Qur’an is not a science book it contains several scientific facts, which were revealed to the Prophet about 1,425 years ago, long before they were discovered by modern science and technology.

They include human embryology, the creation of the universe from nothingness, the continuous expansion of the universe, the orbits of the planets and the geological functions of mountains, he said.
