“Quran, Torah, Bible and Science: A Study of the Holy Books in the Light of Modern Science”
To his surprise, he was told that Muslims believe in a book called “Quran” and this Quran narrates the story of Pharaoh’s drowning and ensures the safety of his body after his death as to be a Sign to mankind. The Professor couldn’t believe his own ears and started to wonder:
- How can a book existed 1400 years ago speak about the mummy that was only found 200 years ago, in 1898?
- How can that be possible while the ancient Egyptian heritage was discovered only a few decades ago and no one knew about it before?
The Professor sat down pondering on what he was told about the book of Muslims
while his! Holy Book narrates only the drowning of Pharaoh without saying anything about his body “Is it possible that this mummy in front of me is the one who was chasing Moses?”
“Is it possible that Muhammad (SAW) knew this 1400 years ago?”
The Professor couldn’t sleep that night till they brought him the Old Testament where he read: “the sea drowned Pharaoh and his army, no one else was left alive” He was surprised that the Holy Book didn’t mention about the destiny of the body and that it will be saved.
When the scientists were done with the mummy, France retuned it to Egypt, but Professor Maurice couldn’t rest for a moment since he was told that Muslims know about the safety of the body. So, he decided to travel and meet anatomy Muslim scientists and there he spoke about his discovery of the safety of the mummy after its death in the sea and so on.
One of the Muslim scientists stood up and simply opened the Quran and pointed to the Professor at one verse:
“This day shall We save you in your body, that you may be a Sign to those who come after you! But verily, many among mankind are neglectful of Our Signs” (Quran 10:92)
The Professor was struck when he read that and immediately stood in front of the crowd and said loudly: “I believe in Islam, I believe in Quran”.
Then he went back to France with a different face he traveled with.
In France, he dedicated 10 years investigating the scientific discoveries and comparing them with the Quran and trying to come up with one scientific contradiction with the Quran. Finally he quoted one verse from the Quran to be his conclusion:
“No falsehood can approach it (this book) from before or behind it: it is sent down by One Full of Wisdom, Worthy of all praise”
