Description from the publisher:
From the back cover: "Science Miracles was conceived by a non-Arabic speaker whose intention was to prove that the Qur'an is a linguistic miracle. When the Prophet (pbuh) was asked repeatedly why he did not bring a miracle like those brought by Moses, Allah (SWT) replied for him with a scientific reference: "There is not an animal (that lives) on the earth, nor a being that flies on its wings, but (forms part of) communities like you" (6:38). The science references are among the many miracles of the Qur'an, and it is the purpose of this book to bring them to "light." For example, Allah says in the Qur'an that "Allah is the light of the heavens and earth." Allah's light reaches man through the teachings of the prophets and the holy books given to them. Allah's light returns to him through man's good deeds. Thus, a circuit of light is closed between Allah and man. The outcome of this light circuit is governed by a generous scoring system favorable to man. Man's nature is electrochemical; he reacts to the light that he receives from God in a scientific fashion. Allah-the Guide, the Merciful-punishes man only after sending prophets to teach from a holy book. Allah uses the universe's natural phenomena to exact precise selective mass destruction, sparing whom he wishes. As God's successor (Khalifa) on Earth, man must learn how to protect his planet from such mass destruction. Also, the book suggests that the opening letters of some of the surahs of the Qur'an act like computer markers to distinguish the Glorious Qur'an from Umm al-Kitab and from the endless number of books that Allah has in His possession."
