And We have made the heaven a roof, well protected, still they turn away paying no heed to its (heavenly) signs. (Al-Anbiya 32. Verse) The atmosphere surrounding the world...
"I can say that I am very impressed by finding astronomical facts in the Qur'an, and for modern astronomers like us who study even the smallest part of the universe, we are intensifying our efforts to understand even the smallest part. Because using telescopes, we can only see the smallest parts of the sky without thinking about the entire universe. So I think I can find my future path to my research of the universe by reading the Qur'an and answering questions from the Qur'an."
Prof. Yushidi Kusan
"I think it is almost impossible for Muhammad to know about things like the common origin of the universe, because scientists have learned in the last few years that this is the case with very complex and advanced technological methods. A person who did not know anything about nuclear physics 1400 years ago, for example; he can't find the answers to other questions we've discussed here or that the earth and the sky come from the same source. Many of the expressions in the Qur'an had not yet been proven at the time, but modern scientific methods are now in a position to prove what the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said 1400 years ago."
Prof. Alfred Kroner
"It was a great pleasure for me to clarify the expressions about human development in the Qur'an. I am sure that Allah gave these statements to Muhammad (pbuh), because most of this information was not discovered until centuries later. This proves to me that Muhammad (pbuh) is the messenger of Allah."
Prof. Keith L. Moore
"As a scientist, I can only deal with what I see with certainty. I understand embryology and developmental biology. I can also understand the words translated from the Qur'an to me. If I could take myself to that era with what I know and what I can define today, then I wouldn't be able to define what was described. So I see no contradiction in the idea that there is divine intervention in everything written in the Qur'an."
Prof. E. Marshall Johnson
"The definitions of many signs of the Qur'an, which are believed to predict recently established facts today, seem consistent and deliberately ambiguous, and a degree of openness of any age that contradicts the level of knowledge of any reader is avoided. If the Qur'an had handled these phenomena (big bang theory, division of the atom, expansion of the universe, etc.), they would have been known to ancient Muslim scientists. A really great feature of the Qur'an is that these signs lose nothing from one generation to another in their power, beauty and mysteries; each generation has found them compatible with the current state of knowledge."
