Description from the publisher:
“Man scientists have come to realize that science and religion can nurture each other. One example was the flowering of the science in the first century of Islam. For author, a Muslim and an astronomer, studying the universe is an expression of faith. Scientist and non-scientists should appreciate the insights in this passionate and lucid book.”
“For Muslim and non-Muslim alike, this book offers information and insight into historical, scientific and religion topics too rarely confronted in western academic circles, particularly the spiritual foundations of modern science. This book reminds us of the spiritual, intellectual and political climate which once prevailed in the Islamic nation.”
“Science and religion, now divorced by modern Western culture, once flourished harmoniously under Islamic rule. The author’s book is valuable in understanding the origins of the breach between the two and identifying grounds for their reconciliation.
