in response to reader comment: To Raqib, "Qur'an and Science"

To Lactantius Jr.

I am extremely sorry for my typing mistake, for writing astrology instead of astonomy. Thanky you very much for replying my articles.

Before I start I would like to say that Qur'an is not a book of science but it gives us enough, more than enough information about some scientific fact which has been proven with the help of modern technology. I have read your article very carefully and understood your claims. However one verse in the Qur'an says that : And the Sun, Runs unto a resting place, For Him: that is The decree of (Him), The Exalted in Might, The All-Knowing. Holy Qur'an, Chapter 36, Verse: 38. Modern astronomers found, using modern technology that sun rotates, in its resting position. Indeed, Holy Qur'an is the words of Allah (God).

There are many more scientific and historical facts in Holy Qur'an, if Allah, my creator wish then we will talk about it. There is a famouse quotation: "The world can be seen with two eyes, externally and internally. The one who sees with two eyes, sees, understands and beleives it all. The one who does not, doesn't beleive at all." Qur'an is the not a book that fell from heaven, nor Bible nor Torah. Its verses came gradually with time. There is similarity in Qur'an, Bible and Torah because these three books are the words of Allah (God). Jesus, Moses, Solomon are also our Prophet too. Our beloved Prophet Muhammad was discriminated by the western and European. But find a Moslem who made bad comments and drawn ugly pictures of Jesus Christ and Abraham. "Respect the people of the Book", Holy Qur'an
