October 6, 2019

Today we are living in a scientific world. Anything said should have a proof.InthispaperI’m going to discuss the latest research of science and how are they incompliance with the saying of Allah(theal-knowing)in the holy Qur’an.FirstlyIwiltalkaboutwhatthescientist cametoknowaboutuniversein21stcenturyisalreadymentionedinQur’an1440yearsago. ThenwewilseewhatscientistdiscoveredaboutHumanbodyrecentlyandwhatdoesAlah sayaboutthis.Afterthatwearewildiscussaboutwhatliesinbetweentheskyandthe Earth,whatscientistbelieveandwhatQur’ansays.Lastly,Iwouldliketodiscussthemost recentdiscoveryofspaceandtheQuranicverseregardingit.

Itwasin1962,DeweyWatsonandFrancisCrickwereawardedNobelPrizeforpresenting thedoublehelixstructureofDNA.Ittookseriesofexperimentsbydifferentscientistaround
