Can science and religion ever be compatible and compliment each other, or are they always going to disagree and people will just have to choose one or the other? A lot of people would agree with this and consider most or all religions today as outdated and incompatible with science and modern times. This is a misconception, not all religions are this way, particularly if it's the Truth. What science and religion each contribute to our understanding of life can be thought of as the following:
Science: Here are some evidence, let's see what conclusions we can draw from them.
Religion: Here are some conclusions, now what evidence can we find to support them?
To a logical and rational person it can be proven that the Qur’an and therefore Islam speak of the Truth. The Holy Qur'an has many miracles in relation to science. Modern science has discovered just recently what the Qur’an had revealed more than 1400 years ago. This is only one much evidence that the Qur’an is the total, eternal and non-corrupted word of the Creator, Allah ta’ala. While there are many errors and contradictions in the Bible with science, none can be found in the holy scriptures of Islam whatsoever, which were revealed as I mentioned well before the discoveries were made by the scientists. Therefore, modern science supports Islam of its beliefs which are unlikely to have been synthesized by Man so accurately, so long ago.
"We will soon show them Our signs in the Universe and inside their selves, until it will become quite clear to them that it is the truth. Is it not sufficient as regards your Lord that He is a witness over all things?" (Quran, 41:53)
Words: Meaning: Mentioned in Quran:
Al-Dunya This World 115
Al-Akhira The Hereafter 115
Al-Mala'ikah Angles 88
Al-Shayateen Satan 88
Al-Hayat Life 145
Al-Maout Death 145
Al-Rajul Man 24
Al-Mar'ha Women 24
Al-Shahr Month 12
Al-Yahom Day 365
Al-bahar Sea 32
Al-bar Land 13
If we add up the total number of times the words ‘sea’ and 'land' are mentioned, we get 45. Now if we do a simple calculation:
32/45 X 100 % = 71.111 %
13/45 X 100 % = 28.888 %
Above is what we know today as the percentages of Water (Sea) and Land on Earth, yet another miracle in the Quran. The Miracles of the Qur’an will never end. There will never be a time where mankind can fully take in the knowledge that is in this Holy book. It is a miracle to all mankind, the word of God. There is no value that one can set to the words of the Creator. It is a treasure which guides those that want to succeed in this life and the hereafter.
"Do they not then consider the Qur'an carefully? Had it been from other than Allah, they would surely have found therein much contradiction and error." (Qur'an 4:82)
