Introduction

A warm welcome to you for visiting my site – Start of Journey, a website dedicated to disseminating knowledge about scientific concepts mentioned in divine scriptures, and how they relate to our modern way of life.

There is no compilation of human work in existence that contains statements as far beyond the level of knowledge of its era as the Qur’an. The Quran’s message is eternal and universal, uniting our differences in race, colour, ethnicity and nationality. It provides guidance on every aspect of human life – from economics and the protocols and ethics of trade to marriage, divorce, parenting, gender issues and inheritance. My website is primarily focussed on the analysis of the revelations in Qur’an from a scientific perspective.

As Cat Stevens (Yusuf Islam), former British pop star, has expressed, “Everything made so much sense. This is the beauty of the Quran; it asks you to reflect and reason… When I read the Quran further, it talked about prayer, kindness and charity. I was not a Muslim yet, but I felt the only answer for me was the Quran and God had sent it to me.”

Professor Keith Moore, a prominent scientist of anatomy and embryology at the University of Toronto, Canada, has stated, “It has been a great pleasure for me to help clarify statements in the Quran about human development. It is clear to me that these statements must have come to Muhammad from God … because almost all of this knowledge was not discovered until many centuries later.”

Professor Alfred Kroner, a world-famous geologist, explained: “Thinking about many of these questions and thinking where Muhammad came from, he was after all a Bedouin, I think it is almost impossible that he could have known about things like the common origin of the universe, because scientists have only found out within the last few years with very complicated and advanced technological methods that this is the case.”

I believe, that when one approaches the study of the Qur’an – he or she should apply the same level of scrutiny that a doctor has when opening a file on a patient for the first time. Only by carefully analysing all the symptoms, can one arrive at an accurate diagnosis. I must admit that it was certainly not faith in Islam that first guided my steps, but simply a desire to search for the truth… the start of a journey.
