The creation of the universe is a subject that is given great attention in the Quran. The huge and varied amount of information contained in the Quran about almost every stage and aspect of the creation continues to astound scientists today because of its very accurate agreement with current knowledge. How can a book written in the 7th century contain such a rich amount of scientific information that was to be attained 14 centuries later? Much of this information was discovered only in the last sixty years! Neutral and unbiased observers do consider this to be valid evidence that such a book could never have been the product of any human being for the simple reason that, at the time, no human possessed such knowledge.

In 1976 Bucaille published his book, The Bible, The Qur’an and Science which argued that the Qur’an contains no statements contradicting established scientific facts. Bucaille argued that the Qur’an is in agreement with scientific facts. He states that in Islam, science and religion have always been “twin sisters”.Bucaille’s belief is that the Qur’an’s descriptions of natural phenomena make it compatible with modern science. Bucaille concludes that the Qur’an is the words of God.

Say, “He is Allah , [who is] One,

Allah , the Eternal Refuge.

He neither begets nor is born,

Nor is there to Him any equivalent.”
