Report this essay
The debate between religions and science has taken a long time and consumed scientific and religious efforts. Each side has its own evidences and they are all strong. But if you look at them with your attention, you will find that there is no clash between them! I mean science supports religion and, on the other side, religion supports science.
It is clear in my religion – Islam – that whatever is mentioned in Quran (The Holy Book) must be correct. Even if it is unbelievable these days, it will be a fact in the future. That because we – Muslims – believe that Quran was written by Allah (God), and he, undoubtedly, knows everything in the universe because he created it. At the current moment, you may be thinking about some facts that are mentioned in Quran, dont hie. I will go through some facts that might make you think about them for the whole year. Lets start from the moon. It is written in Quran 1400 years ago that the moon was bisected into two parts and they were joined together again. Believe it or not, recently, NASA discovered that miraculous fact and they called it The Lunar Rill.

The miracle is that even though two or more of the different water parts meet, they never mix! It deserves a day of thinking about it, doesnt it?
The fetus, the complicated start of the human beings, was mentioned in a scientific way in Quran. It mentioned that the creation of a human being is accomplished through many stages, starting with the sperm as Allah said: “Man We did create from a quintessence (of clay), then We placed him as (a drop of) sperm, in a place of rest, firmly fixed.” And He said in another place: “He makes you in the wombs of your mothers, in stages one after another, in three walls of darkness.” Scientist discovered the fact of those stages of developing and growing just in 1960s. It means that the fact which man came to know since sixty years ago had been mentioned in the Holy Quran fourteen centuries ago. It deserves
