The Qur’an is not a book of science but a book of signs, yet it contains some undeniable facts related to science.
Islam strongly urges mankind to study and explore the universe and the world around us.
Allah has not forbidden mankind to question. Allah tells us throughout the Qur’an to contemplate and investigate the heavens and the earth.
“Verily! In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of night and day, there are indeed signs for men of understanding.”
“Who remember Allah while standing or sitting or [lying] on their sides and give thought to the creation of the heavens and the earth, [saying], “Our Lord, You did not create this aimlessly; exalted are You [above such a thing]; then protect us from the punishment of the Fire.”
