Scientists Who Converted To Islam And Their Reasons by Realismailakabir(m): 12:46am On Sep 06
Keith L. Moore

Professor Emeritus, Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology, University of Toronto.

He was amazed by the accuracy of the statements made in the Quran in the 7th century. Statements about embryology. Before anyone knew anything about it. These statements in the Quran could not be based on scientific knowledge of the time so it must have come from God. 

Q.23:12

وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا ٱلْإِنسَٰنَ مِن سُلَٰلَةٍ مِّن طِينٍ

And certainly did We create man from an extract of clay.
Q.23:13

ثُمَّ جَعَلْنَٰهُ نُطْفَةً فِى قَرَارٍ مَّكِينٍ

Then We placed him as a sperm-drop in a firm lodging.

Q.23:14

ثُمَّ خَلَقْنَا ٱلنُّطْفَةَ عَلَقَةً فَخَلَقْنَا ٱلْعَلَقَةَ مُضْغَةً فَخَلَقْنَا ٱلْمُضْغَةَ عِظَٰمًا فَكَسَوْنَا ٱلْعِظَٰمَ لَحْمًا ثُمَّ أَنشَأْنَٰهُ خَلْقًا ءَاخَرَۚ فَتَبَارَكَ ٱللَّهُ أَحْسَنُ ٱلْخَٰلِقِينَ


Then We made the sperm-drop into a clinging clot, and We made the clot into a lump [of flesh], and We made [from] the lump, bones, and We covered the bones with flesh; then We developed him into another creation. So blessed is Allah, the best of creators.

Q.23:15

ثُمَّ إِنَّكُم بَعْدَ ذَٰلِكَ لَمَيِّتُونَ

Then indeed, after that you are to die.


Q.23:16
ثُمَّ إِنَّكُمْ يَوْمَ ٱلْقِيَٰمَةِ تُبْعَثُونَ

Then indeed you, on the Day of Resurrection, will be resurrected.


E. Marshall Johnson

Professor and Chairman of the Department of Anatomy and Developmental Biology, and Director of the Daniel Baugh Institute, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

He also talked about embryology in the Quran. He said that Prophet Muhammad must have got this info from some source and that he has no issues that it came from God. 

T.V.N. Persaud

Professor of Anatomy, and Professor of Paediatrics and Child Health, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

He said for a man to make such profound statements about science in the seventh century is amazing. He said it could not be mere chance. 

Joe Leigh Simpson

Professor and Chairman of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas, USA.

He said he sees no conflict between genetics and Islam. He said Islam could guide science. He said the knowledge in the Quran is from God. 

Gerald C. Goeringer

Professor and Co-ordinator of Medical Embryology in the Department of Cell Biology, School of Medicine, Georgetown University, Washington DC, USA.

He said the Koran described human development and commingling of the gametes through organogenesis. He said nothing in history has seen such a feat besides current day science. 

Alfred Kroner

Professor of the Department of Geosciences, University of Mainz, Germany.

He talked about the origin of the universe and how it would be impossible for a man like Prophet Muhammad to know about this from his own mind. He said science today proves what the prophet said 1400 years ago. 

Yushidi Kusan

Director of the Tokyo Observatory, Tokyo, Japan.

He talks about astronomy and using telescopes. He said that the Quran has true facts about astronomy. 

Professor Armstrong

Professor Armstrong works for NASA and is also Professor of Astronomy, University of Kansas, Lawrence, Kansas, USA.

He was amazed by what the Quran says about astronomy and how the ancient writing of the Quran agrees with modern science today. 

William Hay

Professor of Oceanography, University of Colorado, Boulder, Colorado, USA.

He was very interested how this information in the Quran could have this science in it and that it must be from God. 

Durja Rao

Professor of Marine Geology teaching at King Abdulaziz University, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

He said that the Quran could not be simple human knowledge and must be from a Supernatural Force. 

Professor Siaveda

Professor of Marine Geology, Japan.

He said the Quran is almost unbelievable and a very remarkablebook. 

Tejatat Tejasen

Chairman of the Department of Anatomy and is the former Dean of the faculty of Medicine, University of Chiang Mai, Chiang Mai, Thailand.

He said all the facts of science in the Quran can be scientifically proventoday. 

Maurice Bucaille

Born in 1920, former chief of the Surgical Clinic, University of Paris, has for a long time deeply interested in the correspondences between the teachings of the Holy Scriptures and modern secular knowledge.

He said it is impossible to explain how a book produced at the time of prophet Muhammad could contain ideas that have only been discovered today. How could a man know these facts without the slightest of error

Dr MAURICE BUCAILLE IS THE AUTHOR OF ONE OF THE MOST FANTASTIC ISLAMIC BOOKS EVER WRITTEN.

THE BOOK IS TITLED "THE BIBLE, THE QUR'AN AND SCIENCE"

IT INVESTIGATES THE SCIENTIFIC FACTS OF THE QUR'AN AND COMPARES WITH THE BIBLE .
IT'S A MUST READ.

Dr maurice bucaille did not convert to Islam too. You guys just put the word in his mouth

Check the first comment in this video. Stop putting the words in people's mouth

And again, who cares if he converted. Does that solve answer our objection to Islam?

I don't have time to check others. Those two are those I've read their book when I was a Muslim. Mind you, Maurice rejected hadith in his book. So if he's the one you will hang your faith on, don't cherry pick. You need to reject the sahih Hadiths too.

YOU MAY BE RIGHT ABOUT HIS NOT DYING A MUSLIM BECAUSE NOBODY SEEMS TO BE SURE ABOUT HIS BELIEF AT THE TIME OF HIS DEATH.

BUT HIS MASTERPIECE OF A BOOK "THE BIBLE, THE QUR'AN AND SCIENCE"
CONVERTED SO MANY TO ISLAM AND IS PROBABLY STILL DOING SO.

THIS BOOK INFLUENCED MY FAITH IN ISLAM IN NO SMALL MEASURE AS A YOUNG MUSLIM.

AND THIS I THINK IS THE BIGGEST LEGACY THAT DR. BUCAILLE LEFT FOR ISLAM.

SO SOMEHOW, MUSLIM OR NOT DR BUCAILLE IS STILL OUR HERO.

you are right. The book influenced me a lot too during my undergraduate. But I later realised bigger problems in Islam that his boom cannot solve. I later left Islam.

I was influenced by many books and authors such as

- the mathematics miracle in Islam (especially the verse that says *over it are sixteen)

- bible Qur'an and science

- anatomy of the Qur'an (a rejoinder to JGO moshay by Yusuf mabera)

- Concept of God in major religion by Dr zakir naik

- Qur'an and modern science conflict or conciliation by Dr zakir naik.

- many books and videos by haruna yahya especially those that refute evolution.

I didn't leave Islam out of ignorance. I am a very sure that Islam is not the absolute truth but I admit it has benefit but also contains dangerous teachings

I doubt if you have ever taken your time to study Islam. Anyway Allah guides whom he wills to the path of Islam.

Quran- the book of science and signs, take it leave it, it remains valid and validate the yesterday, the today and the coming tommorow. No multiple versions, it contains no blasphemous statements. we read it, we memorize, we follow its deeds and abstain from its donts. it's unequivocally a sacred book on a par.
