Islam and Science by Sheikh Awal

This book is an attempt to introduce Muslim youth in particular and mankind in general to the world of knowledge that sprang from the teachings of the Qur’an and influenced human studies and culture in diverse ways, that led to scientific inventions and growth of knowledge in the Muslim world between the 7th and 14th centuries and brought about the Renaissance in Europe and introduced the Europeans to the fundamental elements [i.e. knowledge enquiry, reasoning and freedom] which opened the door for modern scientific inventions. The Qur’an clearly establishes the fact that Science and the Qur’an are two aspects of the same truth and there is no contradiction between them. The first revelation of the Qur’an inspired the Prophet of Islam to acquire knowledge and emphasised life [96: 1-5]. It also advised him to pray to Allah for increase in knowledge [20:114], because they observe and see signs and attributes of Allah both in the Qur’an and in the material universe. They reflect, think and understand the parable of the Qur’an and His manifestations all around them and draw right and beneficial conclusions from them [29:43].
