Science & Signs in Islam

Don't those who reject faith see that the heavens and the earth were a single entity then We ripped them apart?... [The Qurán 21:30]

Religion inculcates scientific temper

  • Fostering scientific temper is a religious duty...Click here

    • Anything other than truth is not religion. Religion calls to be honest to evidences (signs). The method of Science is but a practical implementation of this call of Religion. As such, how can Science ever be in conflict with Religion and vice-versa? 

  • Misunderstanding of people of science...Click here

    • In recent times, it is understood (or misunderstood?) by many people that Religion and Science lie at the two opposite corners of the line of Logic, Reason and Knowledge. Whatever basis they have for such a "belief", this opinion does NOT apply at all to Islam. Much of this attitude has crept in because the Christian views of Creation have been found unaaceptable with Scientific Realities. The Qur'aanic verses pertaining to Scientific events and phenomenon have got nothing to do with these Biblical ideas and are infact in perfect compatibility to the modern scientific findings. 

  • This section...Click here

    • This section is essentially written to show the sincere searcher of truth of the true position Islam has given to Science. Many people would be surprised to learn that the absolute compatibility Islamic thought has with Science is one of the major reasons why so many people from all walks of life are accepting the faith of Islam. 

  • Read 5 Reasons on Why to Study Science by Jared Diamond

  • The "Religion" called "Modern Science by Harun Yahya New!

The Qurán & Science: Never at conflict

The Holy Qur'aan, Allah's last and final book of guidance to mankind is NOT a book of SCIENCE but a book of SIGNS (ayats). However, it does contain some SIGNS of SCIENCE and asks all of us to reflect on them if we doubt the Truth of Allah's message.

Islam's contribution to Scientific Development

Following articles should clarify that the advent of Islam brought the golden era of encouragement of Scientific Thought while Europe was idling in its Dark Ages.

  • Setting the Record Straight : from "The Miracles of Islamic Science" by Dr. A. Ajram is an excellent read to learn about the contributions of Islam to the development of Science.

  • Science and Muslim Scientists : This extract from the Islamic Scholar software is another excellent read to learn more about Muslim contribution to Science.

(Before the European Renaissance)

Eyesight cannot perceive Him but He perceives eyesight.  He is the All-Penetrating, the All-Aware.  Clear insights have come to you from your Lord.  Whoever sees clearly, does so to his own benefit.  Whoever is blind, it is to his own detriment.  I am not here as your keeper.  (Holy Qur'an - Surat al-An'am: verses 103-104)


* pbuh - Peace be upon him; It is a Muslim practise to convey prayers of peace whenever the name of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and other prophets is taken.
