Pendapat Tokoh DUNIA Terhadap AlQur'an & Islam

1. Harry Gaylord Dorman dalam buku "Towards Understanding lslam", New York, 1948, p.3, berkata: "Kitab Qur'an ini adalah benar-benar sabda Tuhan yang didiktekan oleh Jibril, sempurna setiap hurufnya, dan merupakan suatu mukjizat yang tetap aktual hingga kini, untuk membuktikan kebenarannya dan kebenaran Muhammad."

2. Prof. H. A. R. Gibb dalam buku "Mohammadanism", London, 1953, p. 33, berkata seba-gai berikut: "Nah, jika memang Qur'an itu hasil karyanya sendiri, maka orang lain dapat menandinginya. Cobalah mereka mengarang sebuah ungkapan seperti itu. Kalau sampai mereka tidak sanggup dan boleh dikatakan mereka pasti tidak mampu, maka sewajarnyalah mereka menerima Qur'an sebagai bukti yang kuat tentang mukjizat."

3. Sir William Muir dalam buku "The Life of Mohamet", London, 1907; p. VII berkata sebagai berikut: "Qur'an adalah karya dasar Agama Islam. Kekuasaannya mutlak dalam segala hal, etika dan ilmu pengetahuan…"

4. DR. John William Draper dalam buku "A His-tory of the intelectual Development in Europe", London, 1875, jilid 1 , p. 343-344, berkata: "Qur'an mengandung sugesti-sugesti dan proses moral yang cemerlang yang sangat berlimpah-limpah; susunannya demikian fragmenter, sehingga kita tidak dapat membuka satu lembaran tanpa menemukan ungkapan-ungkapan yang harus diterima oleh sekalian orang. Susunan fragmenter ini, mengemukakan teks-teks, moto dan peraturan- peraturan yang sempurna sendirinya, sesuai bagi setiap orang untuk setiap peristiwa dalam hidup."

5. DR. J. Shiddily dalam buku "The Lord Jesus in the Qur'an", p. 111 , berkata: "Qur'an adalah Bible kaum Muslimin dan lebih dimuliakan dari kitab suci yang manapun, lebih dari kitab Perjanjian Lama dan kitab perjanjian Baru."

6. Laura Vaccia Vaglieri dalam buku "Apologie de I'Islamism, p. 57 berkata: "Dalam keselu-ruhannya kita dapati dalam kitab ini, suatu koleksi tentang kebijaksanaan yang dapat diperoleh oleh orang-orang yang paling cerdas, filosof-filosof yang terbesar dan ahli-ahli politik yang paling cakap... Tetapi ada bukti lain tentang sifat Ilahi dalam Qur'an, adalah suatu kenyataan bahwa Qur'an itu tetap utuh melintasi masa-masa sejak turunnya wahyu itu hingga pada masa kini...Kitab ini dibaca berulang-ulang oleh orang yang beriman dengan tiada jemu-jemunya. Keistimewaannya pula, Qur'an senantiasa dipelajari/dibaca oleh anak-anak sejak sekolah tingkat dasar hingga tingkat Profesor. " "Sebaliknya malah karena diulang- ulang ia makin dicintai sehari demi sehari. Qur'an membangkitkan timbul-nya perasaan penghormatan dan respek yang mendalam, pada diri orang yang membaca dan mendengarkannya.... Oleh karena itu bukan dengan jalan paksaan atau dengan senjata, tidak pula dengan tekanan mubaligh-mubaligh yang menyebabkan penyiaran Isiam besar dan cepat, tetapi oleh kenyataan bahwa kitab ini, yang diperkenalkan kaum Muslimin kepada orang-orang yang ditaklukkan dengan kebebasan untuk menerima atau menolaknya adalah kitab Tuhan. Kata yang benar, mukjizat terbesar yang dapat diperlihatkan Muhammad kepada orang yang ragu dan kepada orang yang tetap berkeras kepala."

7. Prof. A. J. Amberry , dalam buku "De Kracht van den Islam", hlm. 38, berkata: "Qur'an ditulis dengan gaya tak menentu dan tidak teratur, yang menunjukkan bahwa penulisnya di atas segala hukum-hukum pengarang manusia."

8. G. Margoliouth dalam buku "Introduction to the Koran" (kata pendahuluan untuk buku J. M. H. Rodwell), London, 1918, berkata: "Diakui bahwa Our'an itu mempunyai kedudukan yang penting diantara kitab-kitab Agama di dunia. Walau kitab ini merupakan yang terakhir dari kitab-kitab yang termasuk dalam kesusasteraan ini, ia tidak kalah dari yang mana pun dalam effeknya yang mengagumkan, yang telah ditimbulkannya terhadap sejumlah besar manusia yang telah menciptakan suatu phase kemajuan manusia dan satu tipe karakter yang segar."

9. George Sale dalam buku "Joseph Charles Mardrus-Premilinary Discourse", berkata: "Di seluruh dunia diakui bahwa Qur'an tertulis dalam bahasa Arab dengan gaya yang paling tinggi, paling murni....diakui sebagai standard bahasa Arab... dan tak dapat ditiru oleh pena manusia... Oleh karena itu diakui seba gai mukjizat yang besar, lebih besar daripada membangkitkan orang mati, dan itu saja sudah cukup untuk meyakinkan dunia bahwa kitab itu berasal dari Tuhan." 10. E. Denisen Ross dari "Introduction to the Koran-George Sale", p. 5, berkata: "Qur'an memegang peranan yang lebih besar terhadap kaum Muslimin daripada peranan Bible dalam agama Kristen. Ia bukan saja merupakan sebuah kitab suci dari kepercayaan mereka, tetapi juga merupakan text book dari upacara agamanya dan prinsip-prinsip hukum kemasyarakatan.....Sungguh sebuah kitab seperti ini patut dibaca secara meluas di Barat, terutama di masa-masa ini, di mana ruang dan waktu hampir telah dipunahkan oleh penemuan-penemuan modern."

11. James A. Michener dalam "Islam the Misun-derstood Religion Readers Digest", Mei 1955, berkata sebagai berikut: "Berita Qur'an inilah yang mengusir patung--patung dewa, dan memberikan ilham kepada manusia untuk merevolusikan hidup dan bangsa mereka.... Kombinasi antara persembahan kepada Satu Tuhan ditambah dengan perintah prakteknya yang membuat Qur'an menjadi khas. Bangsa yang beragama di Timur yakin bahwa negara mereka hanya akan diperintah dengan baik apabila hukum--hukumnya sejalan dengan Qur'an.

12. W.E. Hocking dalam "Spirit of World Politics -New York 32", p. 461 , berkata: "...saya merasa benar dalam penegasan saya, bahwa Qur'an berisi amat banyak prinsip-prinsip yang diperlukan untuk pertumbuhannya sendiri. Sesungguhnya dapat dikatakan bahwa hingga pertengahan abad ke-13, Islamlah pembawa segala apa yang tumbuh yang dapat dibanggakan oleh dunia Barat."

13. Napoleon Bonaparte

Siapa yang tidak mengenal Napoleon Bonaparte, seorang Jendral dan Kaisar Prancis yang tenar kelahiran Ajaccio, Corsica 1769. Namanya terdapat dalam urutan ke-34 dari Seratus tokoh yang paling berpengaruh dalam sejarah yang ditulis oleh Michael H. Hart.

a. Dari "Stanislas Cuyard-Ency des Sciences Religioses", Paris, 1880, jilid IX, p. 501 berkata sebagai berikut: " Selama abad-abad pertengahan, sejarah Islam peradaban sepenuhnya. Berkat keuletan kaum Musliminlah maka ilmu pengetahuan dan falsafah Yunani tertolong dari kebinasaan, dan kemudian datang membangunkan dunia Barat serta membangkitkan gerakan intelektual sampai pada pembaruan Bacon. Dalam abad ke-7 dunia lama itu sedang dalam sakaratulmauit. Muhammad memberi kepada mereka sebuah Qur'an yang rnerupakan titik tolak ke arah dunia baru."

b. Dari buku "Bonaparte et I'Islarn oleh Cherlifs, Paris, p. 105, berkata sebagai berikut: "I hope the time is not far off when I shall be able to unite all the wise and educated men of all the countries and establish a uniform regime based on the prinsiples of the Qur'an wich alone can lead men to happiness. Artinya: Saya meramalkan bahwa tidak lama lagi akan dapat dipersatukan semua manusia yang berakal dan berpendidikan tinggi untuk memajukan satu kesatuan kekuasaan yang berdasarkan prinsip--prinsip ajaran Islam, karena hanyalah Qur'an itu satu-satunya kebenaran yang mampu memimpin manusia kepada kebahagiaan.

"Saya membaca Bible; Musa adalah orang yang cakap, sedang orang Yahudi adalah bangsat, pengecut dan jahat. Adakah sesuatu yang lebih dahsyat daripada kisah Lut beserta kedua puterinya ?" ( Lihat Kejadian 19:30-31 )

Berikutnya :

"Sains telah menunjukkan bukti kepada kita, bahwa bumi bukanlah pusat tata surya, dan ini merupakan pukulan hebat terhadap agama Kristen. Yosua menghentikan matahari (Yosua 10: 12-13). Orang akan melihat bintang-bintang berjatuhan kedalam laut.... saya katakan, semua matahari dan planet-planet ...."


Selanjutnya Napoleon Bonaparte berkata :

"Agama-agama itu selalu didasarkan pada hal-hal yang ajaib, seperti halnya Trinitas yang sulit dipahami. Yesus memanggil dirinya sebagai anak Tuhan, padahal ia keturunan Daud. Saya lebih meyakini agama yang dibawa oleh Muhammad. Islam terhindar jauh dari kelucuan-kelucuan ritual seperti yang terdapat didalam agama kita (Kristen); Bangsa Turki juga menyebut kita sebagai orang-orang penyembah berhala dan dewa."

"Dengan penuh kepastian saya telah mengatakan kepada anda semua pada kesempatan yang berbeda, dan saya harus memperjelas lagi kepada anda disetiap ceramah, bahwa saya adalah seorang Muslim, dan saya memuliakan nabi Muhammad serta mencintai orang-orang Islam."

Akhirnya ia berkata :
"Dengan nama Allah yang Maha Pengasih dan Maha Penyayang. Tiada Tuhan selain Allah. Ia tidak beranak dan Ia mengatur segala makhlukNya tanpa pendamping."

Napoleon Bonaparte mengagumi AlQuran setelah membandingkan dengan kitab sucinya, Alkitab.
Akhirnya ia menemukan keunggulan-keunggulan AlQuran daripada Alkitab, juga semua cerita yang melatar belakanginya.

Coba kita perhatikan PENDAPAT ILMUWAN,
Antara Lain :

1. Prof. DR. Joe Leigh Simson
Ketua Jurusan Ilmu Kebidanan dan Ginekologi dan Professor bidang Moleculer dan Genetika Manusia,
Baylor College Medicine, Houston
"Agama dapat menjadi petunjuk yang berhasil untuk pencarian ilmu pengetahuan. Dan agama ISLAM dapat mencapai sukses dalam hal ini. Tidak ada pertentangan antara ilmu GENETIKA dan AGAMA. Kenyataan di dalam ALQURAN yang ditunjukkan oleh ilmu pengetahuan menjadi valid. Al-Quran yang berasal dari ALLAH mendukung Ilmu Pengetahuan"

2. Prof. Marshall Johson
Guru besar Ilmu Anatomi dan Perkembangan Biologi,
Universitas Thomas Jefferson, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, AS
" Nabi Muhammad SAW sebagai buku ilmu pengetahuan dari ALLAH"

3. Prof. TVN Persaud
Ahli Anatomi, Ahli Kesehatan Anak-anak dan Ahli Ginekologi kebidanan dan Ilmu Reproduksi
di Universitas Menitoba, Winnipeg, Menitoba, Kanada.
" Al-Quran adalah sebuah kitab, petunjuk, kebenaran, bukti dankebenaran yang abadi bagi kita sampai akhir zaman"

4. Prof. Tejatat Tejasen Ketua Jurusan Anatomi Universitas Thailand, Chiang Mai
" Semua yang tertulis didalam Al-Quran pasti sebuah kebenaran yang dapat dibuktikan"

Pada saat Konferensi Kedokteran ke-8 di Riyadh ia berkata :

pada hari ketiga tahun-tahun terakhir ini, saya menjadi tertarik mempelajari Al-Quran. Tahun lalu Saya mendapati mendapati tulisan Professor Keith Moore terakhir dari Abdul Majid az-Zindani. Dia meminta saya menterjemahkan kedalam bahasa Thailand dan memberikan sedikit kuliah di Thailand. Saya telah memenuhi permintaannya. Anda dapat melihatnya dalam videotape yang saya berikan kepadanya sebagai sebuah hadiah. Dari Penelitian Saya dan apa yang saya pelajari secara keseluruhan dalam konferensi ini, saya percaya bahwa semuanya yang telah tertulis di dalam Al-Quran pasti sebuah KEBENARAN, yang dapat dibuktikan dengan peralatan ilmiah. Sejak Nabi Muhammad SAW yang tidak dapat membaca maupun menulis, Muhammad pasti seorang utusan yang menyiarkan Kebenaran yang diturunkan kepadanya sebagai seorang yang dipilih oleh Sang Pencipta. Pencipta ini pasti ALLAH atau tuhan. Oleh karena itu, saya berfikir inilah saatnya saya mengucapkan kalimat "LAAILLAHA ILLALLAH (Tiada Tuhan Selain Allah) Muhammad Rasul Allah".

5. Prof. Alfred Kroner Ketua Jurusan Geologi Institute Geosciences,
Universitas Johannes Guttenburg, Maintz, Jerman
" .... Metode ilmiah modern sekarang membuktikan apa yang telah dikatakan Muhammad 1400 tahun yang lalu. Al-Quran adalah buku teks ilmu pengetahuan yang simple dan sederhana untuk orang yang sederhana ( ketika zaman rasulullah ilmu pengetahuan masih minim alias belum ada tapi sekarang dibuktikan )"

6. Prof. Palmer Ahli Geologi ternama Amerika Serikat.
" Al-Quran adalah kitab yang menakjubkan yang menggambarkan masa lalu, sekarang, dan masa depan."

7. Prof. Shroeder
Ilmuwan Kelautan dari Jerman.
" Ilmuwan itu sebenarnya hanya menegaskan apa yang tertulis di dalam Al-Quran beberapa tahun yang lalu. Para Ilmuwan

sekarang hanya menemukan apa yang tekah tersebut di dalam Al-Quran sejak 1400 tahun yang lalu."

8. Prof. Yoshihide Kozai
Guru Besar Universitas Tokyo
Direktur The National Astronomical Observatory, Mikata, Tokyo, Jepang
" Dengan membaca Al-Quran, saya dapat menemukan jalan masa depan saya untuk investigasi alam semesta"


====
ILMUWAN BERBICARA TENTANG ALQUR'AN
This Is The Truth!


Dr. Maurice Bucaille
Born in 1920, former chief of the Surgical Clinic, University of Paris, has for a long time deeply interested in the correspondences between the teachings of the Holy Scriptures and modern secular knowledge.

He is the author of a best-seller, "The Bible, The Qur'ân and Science" (1976). His classical studies of the scriptural languages, including Arabic, in association with his knowledge of hieroglyphics, have allowed him to hold a multidisciplinary inquiry, in which his personal contribution as a medical doctor has produced conclusive arguments. His work, "Mummies of the Pharaohs - Modern Medical Investigations" (St. Martins Press, 1990), won a History Prize from the Académie Française and another prize from the French National Academy of Medicine.

His other works include: "What is the Origin of Man" (Seghers, 1988), "Moses and Pharaoh, the Hebrews in Egypt", (NTT Mediascope Inc, 1994); and "Réflexions sur le Coran" (Mohamed Talbi & Maurice Bucaille, Seghers, 1989)

After a study which lasted ten years, Dr. Maurice Bucaille addressed the French Academy of Medicine in 1976 concerning the existence in the Qur'ân of certain statements concerning physiology and reproduction. His reason for doing that was that :

"...our knowledge of these disciplines is such, that it is impossible to explain how a text produced at the time of the Qur'ân could have contained ideas that have only been discovered in modern times."

"The above observation makes the hypothesis advanced by those who see Muhammad as the author of the Qur'ân untenable. How could a man, from being illiterate, become the most important author, in terms of literary merits, in the whole of Arabic literature?

How could he then pronounce truths of a scientific nature that no other human-being could possibly have developed at that time, and all this without once making the slightest error in his pronouncement on the subject?"


Keith L. Moore
Professor Emeritus, Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology, University of Toronto. Distinguished embryologist and the author of several medical textbooks, including Clinically Oriented Anatomy (3rd Edition) and The Developing Human (5th Edition, with T.V.N. Persaud).


Dr. Moore was a former President of the Canadian Association of Anatomists, and of the American Association of Clinical Anatomists. He was honoured by the Canadian Association of Anatomists with the prestigious J.C.B. Grant Award and in 1994 he received the Honoured Member Award of the American Association of Clinical Anatomists "for outstanding contributions to the field of clinical anatomy."

"For the past three years, I have worked with the Embryology Committee of King cAbdulazîz University in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, helping them to interpret the many statements in the Qur'ân and Sunnah referring to human reproduction and prenatal development. At first I was astonished by the accuracy of the statements that were recorded in the 7th century AD, before the science of embryology was established. Although I was aware of the glorious history of Muslim scientists in the 10th century AD, and some of their contributions to Medicine, I knew nothing about the religious facts and beliefs contained in the Qur'ân and Sunnah."

At a conference in Cairo he presented a research paper and stated:

"It has been a great pleasure for me to help clarify statements in the Qur'ân about human development. It is clear to me that these statements must have come to Muhammad from God, or Allah, because most of this knowledge was not discovered until many centuries later. This proves to me that Muhammad must have been a messenger of God, or Allah."

Professor Moore also stated that:

"...Because the staging of human embryos is complex, owing to the continuous process of change during development, it is proposed that a new system of classification could be developed using the terms mentioned in the Qur'ân and Sunnah. The proposed system is simple, comprehensive, and conforms with present embryological knowledge.

"The intensive studies of the Qur'ân and Hadîth in the last four years have revealed a system of classifying human embryos that is amazing since it was recorded in the seventh century A.D... the descriptions in the Qur'ân cannot be based on scientific knowledge in the seventh century..."

Investigations in to the 'alaqa or leech-like stage.



E. Marshall Johnson
Professor and Chairman of the Department of Anatomy and Developmental Biology, and Director of the Daniel Baugh Institute, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

Author of over 200 publications. Former President of the Teratology Society among other accomplishments. Professor Johnson began to take an interest in the scientific signs in the Qur'ân at the 7th Saudi Medical Conference (1982), when a special committee was formed to investigate scientific signs in the Qur'ân and Hadîth. At first, Professor Johnson refused to accept the existence of such verses in the Qur'ân and Hadîth. But after a dicussuion with Sheikh Zindanî he took an interest and concentrated his research on the internal as well as external development of the fetus.

"...in summary, the Qur'ân describes not only the development of external form, but emphasises also the internal stages, the stages inside the embryo, of its creation and development, emphasising major events recognised by contemporary science."

"As a scientist, I can only deal with things which I can specifically see. I can understand embryology and developmental biology. I can understand the words that are translated to me from the Qur'ân. As I gave the example before, if I were to transpose myself into that era, knowing what I do today and describing things, I could not describe the things that were described...

I see no evidence to refute the concept that this individual Muhammad had to be developing this information from some place... so I see nothing here in conflict with the concept that divine intervention was involved in what he was able to write..."


T.V.N. Persaud
Professor of Anatomy, and Professor of Paediatrics and Child Health, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

Author and editor of over 20 books, and has published over 181 scientific papers. Co-author of The Developing Human (5th Edition, with Keith L. Moore). He received the J.C.B. Grant Award in 1991. Professor Peraud presented several research papers.

"It seems to me that Muhammad was a very ordinary man, he couldn't read, didn't know how to write, in fact he was an illiterate...

We're talking about 1400 years ago, you have some illiterate person making profound statements that are amazingly accurate, of a scientific nature...

I personally can't see how this could be mere chance, there are too many accuracies and like Dr. Moore, I have no difficulty in my mind reconciling that this is a divine inspiration or revelation which lead him to these statements."


Joe Leigh Simpson
Professor and Chairman of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas, USA.

He is the President of the American Fertility Society. He has received many awards, including the Association of Professors of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Public Recognition Award in 1992. Like many others, Professor Simpson was taken by surprise when he discovered that the Qur'ân and Hadîth contain verses related to his specialised field of study. When he met with Sheikh Abdul-Majeed A.Zindanî, he insisted on verifying the text presented to him from the Qur'ân and Hadîth.

"... these Hadîths (sayings of Muhammad) could not have been obtained on the basis of the scientific knowledge that was available at the time of the 'writer'... It follows that not only is there no conflict between genetics and religion (Islâm) but in fact religion (Islâm) may guide science by adding revelation to some of the traditional scientific approaches... There exist statements in the Qur'ân shown centuries later to be valid which support knowledge in the Qur'ân having been derived from God."


Gerald C. Goeringer
Professor and Co-ordinator of Medical Embryology in the Department of Cell Biology, School of Medicine, Georgetown University, Washington DC, USA.

Sheikh cAbdul-Majeed A.Zindanî met with Professor Goeringer and asked him whether in the history of embryology was there any mention of the different stages of embryonic development, or whether there existed any embryological texts at the time of the Prophet. Sheikh Zindanî also asked his opinion regarding the terms the Qur'ân uses to describe the different phases of fetal development. After several long discussions, he presented a study at the 8th Saudi Medical Conference:

"...In a relatively few ayahs (Qur'ânic verses) is contained a rather comprehensive description of human development from the time of commingling of the gametes through organogenesis. No such distinct and complete record of human development such as classification, terminology, and description existed previously. In most, if not all instances, this description antedates by many centuries the recording of the various stages of human embryonic and fetal development recorded in the traditional scientific literature."


Alfred Kroner
Professor of the Department of Geosciences, University of Mainz, Germany.

Professor Kroner is one of the world's most famous geologists, becoming well known among his colleague scientists for his criticisms against the theories of some of the major scientists in his field. Sheikh cAbdul-Majeed A. Zindanî met with him and presented several Qur'ânic verses and Hadîth which he studied and commented upon.

"Thinking where Muhammad came from... I think it is almost impossible that he could have known about things like the common origin of the universe, because scientists have only found out within the last few years with very complicated and advanced technological methods that this is the case."

"Somebody who did not know something about nuclear physics 1400 years ago could not, I think, be in a position to find out from his own mind for instance that the earth and the heavens had the same origin, or many others of the questions that we have discussed here...

If you combine all these and you combine all these statements that are being made in the Qur'ân in terms that relate to the earth and the formation of the earth and science in general, you can basically say that statements made there in many ways are true, they can now be confirmed by scientific methods, and in a way, you can say that the Qur'ân is a simple science text book for the simple man. And that many of the statements made in there at that time could not be proven, but that modern scientific methods are now in a position to prove what Muhammad said 1400 years ago."


Yushidi Kusan
Director of the Tokyo Observatory, Tokyo, Japan.

Sheikh cAbdul-Majeed A. Zindanî presented a number of Qur'ânic verses describing the beginnings of the universe and of the heavens, and the relationship of the earth to the heavens. He expressed his astonishment, saying that the Qur'ân describes the universe as seen from the highest observation point, everything is distinct and clear.

"I say, I am very much impressed by finding true astronomical facts in Qur'ân, and for us modern astronomers have been studying very small piece of the universe. We have concentrated our efforts for understanding of very small part. Because by using telescopes, we can see only very few parts of the sky without thinking about the whole universe. So by reading Qur'ân and by answering to the questions, I think I can find my future way for investigation of the universe."


Professor Armstrong
Professor Armstrong works for NASA and is also Professor of Astronomy, University of Kansas, Lawrence, Kansas, USA.

Prof. Armstrong was asked a number of questions about Qur'ânic verses dealing with his field of specialisation. He was eventually asked, "You have seen and discovered for yourself the true nature of modern Astronomy by means of modern equipment, rockets, and satellites developed by man. You have also seen how the same facts were mentioned by the Qur'an fourteen centuries ago. So what is your opinion?"

"That is a difficult question which I have been thinking about since our discussion here. I am impressed at how remarkably some of the ancient writings seem to correspond to modern and recent Astronomy. I am not a sufficient scholar of human history to project myself completely and reliably into the circumstances that 1400 years ago would have prevailed.

Certainly, I would like to leave it at that, that what we have seen is remarkable, it may or may not admit of scientific explanation, there may well have to be something beyond what we understand as ordinary human experience to account for the writings that we have seen."


William Hay
Professor of Oceanogprahy, University of Colorado, Boulder, Colorado, USA.

Professor Hay is one of the best known marine scientist in the USA. Sheikh cAbdul-Majeed A. Zindanî met with him and asked him many questions about the marine surface, the divider between upper and lower sea, and about the ocean floor and marine geology.

"I find it very interesting that this sort of information is in the ancient scriptures of the Holy Qur'ân, and I have no way of knowing where they would have come from. But I think it is extremely interesting that they are there and this work is going on to discover it, the meaning of some of the passages."

And when he was asked about the source of the Qur'ân, he replied, "Well, I would think it must be the divine being."


Durja Rao
Professor of Marine Geology teaching at King Abdulaziz University, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Sheikh Zindanî presented to Prof. Rao many verses dealing with his area of specialisation, and asked: "What do you think of the existence of the scientific information in the Qur'ân? How could Prophet Muhammad have known about these facts fourteen centuries ago?"

"It is difficult to imagine that this type of knowledge was existing at that time, around 1400 years back. May be some of the things they have simple idea about, but to describe those things in great detail is very difficult. So this is definitely not simple human knowledge. A normal human being cannot explain this phenomenon in that much detail. So, I thought the information must have come from a supernatural source."


Professor Siaveda
Professor of Marine Geology, Japan.

Sheikh Zindanî asked him a number of questions in his area of specialisation, and then informed him of the Qur'ânic verses and Hadîth which mention the same phenomena he spoke of. One of the questions was concerning mountains. Sheikh Zindanî asked him about the shape of mountains; and whether they were firmly rooted in the earth. "What is your opinion of what you have seen in the Qur'ân and the Sunnah with regard to the secrets of the Universe, which scientists only discovered now?"

"I think it seems to me very, very mysterious, almost unbelievable. I really think if what you have said is true, the book is really a very remarkable book, I agree."


Tejatat Tejasen
Chairman of the Department of Anatomy and is the former Dean of the faculty of Medicine, University of Chiang Mai, Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Professor Tejasen studied various articles concerning the Qur'ân and modern embryology. He spent four days with several scholars, Muslims and non-Muslims, discussing this phenomenon in the Qur'ân and Hadîth. During the 8th Saudi Medical Conference in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia he stood up and said:

"In the last three years, I became interested in the Qur'ân... From my studies and what I have learned throughout this conference, I believe that everything that has been recorded in the Qur'ân fourteen hundred years ago must be the truth, that can be proved by the scientific means.

Since the Prophet Muhammad could neither read nor write, Muhammad must be a messenger who relayed this truth which was revealed to him as an enlightenment by the one who is eligible creator. This creator must be God, or Allah.

I think this is the time to say La ilaha illa Allah, there is no god to worship except Allah (God), Muhammad rasoolu Allah, Muhammad is Messenger of Allah...

The most precious thing I have gained from coming to this conference is La ilaha illa Allah, and to have become Muslim."

Wahai din dan Mualaf sang Idiot muslims yang kemakan berita2 kampungan dan basi.

Check this OUT !!!

The new Mullahs and other Islamists feel very happy whenever they find occidental (western white person) talks in favor of their faith (Islam). This is especially true when these western people try to associate Qur’an and Hadith with anything resembling an inkling of scientific truth. For the last 25 years or so, the Islamists have found an infidel supporter (pseudo) of their faith. He is none other than Dr. Maurice Bucaille who was in France in 1920. At one time, he was the chief of the surgical clinic of the University of Paris. In 1976, he published a book entitled "The Bible, The Qur’an and science.” Ever since its publication, the Islamists have found a great sanctuary in this book whenever the question of science and Qur’an is raised. Bucaille’s writings have become not only a source of inspiration for them, but it also has become their principal source to confront the secularists who point out the various ambiguities, inconstancies and the unscientific nature that one could find scattered all over Qur’an.

In his book, Dr. Bucaille discusses the following main topics as revealed in the Qur’an

The Creation of the heavens and the Earth

Astronomy and the Qur’an

The Earth

Human Reproduction

If one reads Dr. Bucaille's discourse on these topics, it does not take much intelligence to note the twisted logic and his clever selection of only those verses that serve his purposes. There is not enough space in this short essay to deal with each and every aspect of Dr. Bucaille's topics. One striking point however is that he only elucidates a natural phenomenon as described in the Qur’an and interprets that natural phenomenon as the scientific explanation in the Qur’an. (For details to a rebuttal to Dr. Maurice Bucaille please visit www.freespeech.org/rationalthinking or refer to "The Qur’an and the Bible in the Light of History & Science" by Dr. William Campbell, publisher Middle East Resources 1992). This is absolutely unacceptable to anyone who has the slightest idea what scientific knowledge is all about.

Take for example the case of "water cycle.” Dr. Bucaille tries to depict that the Qur’an had the advance knowledge of this natural phenomenon before anyone could discover it. This is totally untrue. Water cycle is really an observable natural fact that is understood even by an illiterate and uneducated (in modern science) person. This water cycle consists of the following phases. (1) Water evaporates from the land, lakes, rivers; seas etc. (2) Water is transformed in to cloud. (3) Cloud gives rain. (4) The rain replenishes the water in land. (5) Water runs to the rivers, lakes and then to the sea. The cycle then repeats. There is no doubt that this phenomenon was clearly understood even by the pre-historic people that enabled them to invent the system of agriculture, which is largely dependent on this cycle. Today, even the primary school children are aware of this cycle of nature. To say that the "water cycle" is something that is discovered by the Qur’an is simply laughable and reveals nothing but the real motive as to why Dr. Bucaille is so inclined in pleasing the Islamists. Let us look for some clues to this matter.

Dr. Bucaille was appointed the family physician of the late King Faisal of Saudi Arabia. King Faisal introduced him to the Islamic religion and its source, that is, the Qur’an and Hadith. At that time, Dr. Bucaille was a stereotyped westerner who had prejudicial ideas about Islam and the Qur’an. He was acutely aware of the perceived de-humanized face of Islam outside the Islamic world. This charlatan found a great opportunity to make good money out of this situation. He thought that if only he could please the Islamists by writing a few good things about Islam he can have a good share of the petro-dollar that was pouring in Saudi Arabia. This will be better than remaining as a lowly physician to the king. So he learned the Arabic language and started to study the Qur’an and wrote the book, "The Bible, The Qur’an and Science". Money—he did make and plenty of it. This is due to the fact that almost all the Islamic countries have translated his book in their languages and it is a must read book for the new Mullahs. Also, consider how much blessings he had received from all the oil rich Seikh doms. For all of these, he is deeply grateful to his paymaster, the Arabs. In fact, in the lengthy introduction part of his book he writes "The debt of gratitude I owe to the late King Faisal, whose memory I salute with deepest respect, is indeed very great: the fact that I was given signal honour of hearing him speak on Islam and was able to raise with him certain problems concerning the interpretation of the Qur’an in relation to science is very cherished memory. It was an extremely great privilege for me to have gathered so much precious information from him personally and those around him".

Dr. Bucaille's book leaves one with the impression that he (Dr. Bucaille) is convinced that Islam is the truest religion of all on earth and the Qur’an is indeed the words of Allah. Now when a person is so much convinced in a faith we naturally expect him to be a Muslim, isn't it? But Dr. Bucaille is not so stupid to follow this path. Having digested the Qur’an and the Hadith thoroughly he knew what fate awaits him (and his family) if ever he changes his mind on Islam (death for apostasy in Islam). He also realized that he could make more money if he does not convert to Islam. Therefore, until today, he is a Catholic. What bugs him to become a Muslim and follow the Qur’an, which he claims to be so divine and scientific? Being a man of science why does not he lend his ultimate allegiance to the scientific Qur’an? What answer the Islamists have for this enigma of Dr. Bucaille?

Qur’an has 114 Suras and thousands of verses. Why Dr. Bucaille deliberately chooses those verses that deal with a handful of natural phenomena? He very cleverly chooses to quote the following benign verses

"There is no compulsion in religion" (2:256)

"(God) has not laid upon you in religion any hardship" (22:78)

This is deliberately done by him to give an impression that Islam is very merciful and tolerant religion. This is aimed at people who have very little knowledge about the real Islam (especially the western people). Does not this tactic sound like the tactics used by our new Mullahs? Dr. Bucaille cleverly avoids the political, social and the violent parts of the Qur’an. Are not political and social matters scientific too? After all, there are such subjects as political science, social science, etc. Dr. Bucaille writes that he could not find any verse in Qur’an that is against science. If we have to believe this blatant lie emanating from his pen, then

Hilla marriage must be scientific.

Mut’a marriage must be scientific.

Hijab must be scientific.

Having four wives at any time and plenty of concubines (possessions of the right hand) must be scientific.

Cacophony of azan (loud prayer call, a chief source of noise pollution in Islamic world) must be scientific

Tayammum (ablution with dirt and stones) must be scientific

Slavery must be scientific

Death for apostasy must be scientific.

Islamic genocide (like Bangladesh) must be scientific.

Cutting off hands and feet for petty theft must be scientific.

Using stones to relieve oneself must be scientific.

Drinking the Camel’s urine must be scientific.

Beating the wives to make them obedient must be scientific

Killing infidels must be scientific.

All the actions of the Talibans must be scientific.

And so on.

If the Qur’an is scientific then why not Kama Sutra (Sanskrit treatise to love making) scientific too? Why not the Bhagabat Geeta, Monu’s Sanghita, the Vedas and the Mahabharata scientific? If the Hindus could generate billions of petro-dollar they can surely employ many western professors to do just that. When I was in high school, I had a devout Hindu teacher. He always used to say that Hinduism is the basis of all science. How? He used to give examples of the mention of Vimana (air craft), Garuda (probably flying saucer or space ship), Trishul Chakra (probably rotary space station), Agni Baan (ballistic missiles), etc., to prove that the Hindus knew how to make those things, which are very common in to-days world. 'Do not these examples prove that Hinduism is more scientific than any other religion?' he used to say. We just used to nod our head in agreement. That was just to please him and to ensure a good mark in his subject. Dr. Bucille is there to please the Arabs, the Islamists and to make money; tons of it. He also employs another tactic. He declares that his own faith (Catholic Christianity) is not as scientific as Islam is. What a great news for our new Mullahs! There can be no news sweeter than this, no news happier than this, no news more pleasant than this. Nonetheless, he actually fools the Islamists by throwing dust in their eyes. Never does he covert to Islam. But Mullahs are too docile and cretinous not to see his stratagem. How sad

[u]MASA WAKTU YANG SALAH, MEMBUKTIKAN YANG SALAH.


SEBAGAI CATATAN SEJARAH TIDAKLAH MUNGKIN BAGI PARA PENULIS ALKITAB BERBICARA TENTANG ALLAH SWT SEBAGAI TUHAN. MENGAPA BEGITU ?

YA! SAMPAI ABAT KE 7 NAMA ALLAH MERUPAKAN SUATU NAMA " DEWA KAFIR" . BARU SELANJUTNYA NAMA DEWA ALLAH TERSEBUT DIUBAH OLEH MYHAMMAD MENJADI NAMA DARI SATU-2NYA TUHAN.

PADAHAL ALKITAB SUDAH SELESAI DI TULIS JAUH-JAUH HARI SEBELUM MUHAMMAD LAHIR., JADI BAGAIMANA MUNGKIN ALKITAB BERBICARA TENTANG MUHAMMAD.


DALAM KENYATAANNYA SEBUTAN NAMA ALLAH PUN TIDAK PERNAH KELUAR DARI BIBIR PARA PENULIS ARAB.

SAMPAI JAMAN MUHAMMAD , ALLAH ADALAH NAMA SALAH SATU DARI DEWA-DEWA BERHALA , NAMA ALLAH DIKENAL SECARA KHUSUS SEBAGAI NAMA DEWA-DEWA YANG MENJADI SESEMBAHAN ORANG ARABPADA JAMAN ITU.

PARA PENULIS ALKITAB TIDAK AKAN KELIRU MEMBEDAKAN ALLAH ( YANG ASING BAGINYA ) DENGAN YAHWEH ( YANG DIKENAL DEKAT ) SEPERTI MEREKA TIDAK AKAN KELIRU MEMBEDAKAN BAAL DENGAN YAHWEH.

(JADI ALLAH ( AULLOH) YANG DISEMBAH ORANG ISLAM , BUKANLAH ELOHIM YANG TERTULIS DIDALAM TAURAT DAN INJIL , TETAPI YANG BERASAL DARI AJARAN PRA-ISLAM , DARI ORANG-2 ARAB JAHILIAH YANG SUDAH DI UBAH KONSEPNYA ATAU DIUBAH PENGERTIANNYA, MAKA MENJADI KEKELIRUAN YANG JELAS KALAU MENGANGGAP ALLAH YANG DISEMBAH OLEH ORANG MUSLIM ITU SAMA DENGAN YANG DISEMBAH OLEH ORANG KRISTIANI.




SEBELUM ABAD 9 ISLAM MERUPAKAN KEKUATANN POLOITIK YANG PALING DOMINAN DI NEGERI-2 ARAB DAN ORANG -2 YANG MENTERJEMAHKAN ALKITAB KEDALAM BAHASA ARAB MENGHADAPI SITUASI POLITIK YANG SANGAT SULIT.
JIKA MEREKA TIDAK MENGGUNAKAN NAMA ALLAH SEBAGAI NAMA TUHAN, MEREKA AKAN MENDERITA SIKSAAN DITANGAHN MASAYARAKAT ISLAM YANG FANATIK YANG MEYAKINI BAHWA ALLAH DALAM ALQURAN ADALAH SAMA DENGAN TUHAN DALAM ALKITAB.

KARENA ALLAH PADA JAMAN ITU MERUPAKAN NAMA YANG DIKENAL UMUM UNTUK NAMA TUHAN , SEBAGAI AKIBAT DARI DOMINASI ISLAM, PENERJEMAH TUNDUK PADA TEKANAN-2 AGAMA DAN POLITIK DENGAN MENULISKAN KATA " ALLAH" DALAM TERJEMAHAN ALKITAB BAHASA ARAB.

PERLU DIKETAHUIO, BAHWA TERJEMAHAN ALKITAB BERBAHASA ARAB BARU MUNCUL 900 TAHUN SETELAH ALKITAB ASLI SELESAI DITULIS , JADI TIDAK ADA SANGKUT PAUTNYA SAMA SEKALI DENGAN MASALAH ALLAHSEBAGAI NAMA ASLINYA.
PADA AKHIRNYA , FAKTA YANG JELAS ADALAH BAHWA TERJEMAHAN ALKITAB BERBAHASA ARAB YANG MUNCUL PADA ABAT KE 9 ITU TIDAK DAPAT DIJADIKAN DASAR ARGUMENTASI YANG MENYIMPULKAN BAHWAPARA PENULIS ALKITAB YANG MENGERJAKAN KARYA PENULISANNYA BER ABAD-2 SEBELUMNYA DALAM BAHASA IBRANI, DAN BAHASA YUNANI MENGGUNAKAN ISTILAH BAHASA ARAB " ALLAH" UNTUK MENAMAKAN TUHAN ( ELOHIM) .
MEMPERCAYAI HAL TERSEBUT MERUPAKAN SESUATU YANG TIDAK MUNGKIN

KESIMPULAN:

BANYAK ORANG MENGASUMSIKAN BAHWA ALLAH ADALAH NAMA LAIN DARI TUHAN.
HAL INI ADALAH KETIDAKTAHUAN MEREKA MENGENBAHI PERBEDAAN ANTARA ALLAH-ALQURAN DAN TUHAN - ALKITAB, SERTA AKIBAT ADANYA PROPAGANDA DARI PARA PENYEBAR AGAMA ISLAM YANG MEMANFAATKAN PANDANGAN BAHWA ALLAH ADALAH NAMA LAIN DARI TUHAN DENGAN MAKSUD UNTUK MEMBUKA KESEMPATAN AGAR MEREKA DAPAT MENG - ISLAMKAN ORANG-2 BARAT.

ALKITAB DAN ALQURAN ADALAH DUA DOKUMEN YANG BERBEDA DALAM MEMBERI PENJELASAN DENGAN KONSEP KEILAHIAN.

KENYATAAN INI TIDAK DAPAT DIABAIKAN HANYA SEMATA-2 KARENA HAL TERSEBUT TIDAK SESUAI DENGAN KEPOPULERAN DARI RELATIVISME KEAGAMAAN PADA MASA KINI.

==================================

TUHAN YANG SAMA ? TIDAK!

BANYAK ORANG YANG MASIH MEYAKINI BAHWA ISLAM DAN KRISTEN MENYEMBAH TUHAN YANG SAMA SEBAB MEREKA MENUEMBAH SATU-SATUNYA TUHANYANG ESA.
MEREKA GAGAL UNTUK MEMAHAMI BAHWA MONOTHEISME ITU SENDIRI TIDAK MENJELASKAN APAPUN MENGENAHI IDENTITAS DARI TUHAN YANG ESA YANG HARUS DISEMBAH , DENGAN KATA LAIN TIDAKLAH CUKUP UNTUK MENGATAKAN BAHWA HANYA ADA TUHAN YANG ESA TETAPI ITU BADALAH TUHAN YANG SALAH.

ADA SATU HAL YANG PENTING YANG DIABAIKAN OLEH SEBAGIAN BESAR PENULIS YANG TELAH MENULIS MENGENAHI AGAMA YANG DISIARKAN OLEH MUHAMMAD MENGENAHI TUHAN.
BEGITU MUDAH MEREKA TERSESAT OLEH NAMA ATAU ETIMOLOGI .
HAMPIR SEMUA PENULIS TERSEBUT MENGANGGAP BAHWA TUHAN DALAM ALQURAN MEMPUNYAI SIFAT-2 DAN EKSISTENSI YANG SAMA DENGAN " YAHWEH " YANG DINYATAKAN OLEH ALKITAB PERJANJIAN BARU.
APAKAH PANDANGAN SEPERTI ITU BENAR ?

SEBAGIAN BESAR MASYARAKAT MENGANGGAP BAHWA TUHAN DALAM ALKITAB DAN TUHAN DALAM ALQURAN ADALAH SAMA DAN SATU, HANYA NAMANYA YANG BERBEDA. APAKAH INI BETUL ?

KETIKA KITA BANDINGKAN SIFAT-2 TUHAN - ALKITAB DENGAN SIFAT TUHANNYA ALQURAN , MUNCUL DENGAN JELAS BAHWA SEMUANYA BUKAN DARI TUHAN YANG SAMA.

SEJAK MUNCULNYA AGAMA ISLAM . PARA ILMUWAN KRISTEN DAN ISLAM TELAH BERSELISIH PENDAPAT MENGENAHI SIAPA TUHAN YANGH BENAR.

TUHAN MENURUT ALKITAB TDK DAPPAT DIUBAH MENJADI ALLAH SESUAI PANDANGAN ISLAM , DEMIKIAN JUGA ALLAH ISLAM TIDAK DAPAT DIUBAH MENJADI TUHAN ALKITAB.

LATAR BELAKANG SEJARAH DAN ASAL USUL MAKNA KATA ARAB " ALLAH" MENUNJUKKAN BAHWA ALLAH BUKANLAH TUHAN YANG MENJADI SESEMBAHAN ORANG YAHUDI DAN ORANG KRISTEN.
ALLAH HANYALAH SUATU BERHALA DEWA BULAN BANGSA ARAB YANG DIMODIFIKASI DAN DITINGKATKAN MAKNANYA.

DOTOR SAMUEL SCHLORFF MENYATAKAN DALAM TULISANNYA MENGENAHI PERBEDAAN MENDASAR ANTARA ALLAH DALAM ALQURAN DAN TUHAN DALAM ALKITAB SEBAGAI BERIKUT :

SAYA PERCAYA BAHWA KUNCI PERMASALAHANNYA ADALAH PERTANYAAN MENGENAHI HAKIKAT TUHAN DAN BAGAIMANA TUHAN BERHUBUNGAN DENGAN CIPTAAN NYA; ISLAM DAN KRISTEN MESKIPUN MEMPUNYAI KESAMAAN SECARA FORMAL , SESUNGGUHNYA SANGAT JAUH BERBEDA DALAM MASALAH TERSEBUT.


-----------ADA LANJUTNYA > MEMBEDAH KEBOHONGAN ALLAH MENYAMA RATAKAN SEBAGAI TUHAN, YANG SEBENARNYA ADALAH DEWA BERHALA YAITU BULAN.

Check this OUT !!!

The new Mullahs and other Islamists feel very happy whenever they find occidental (western white person) talks in favor of their faith (Islam). This is especially true when these western people try to associate Qur’an and Hadith with anything resembling an inkling of scientific truth. For the last 25 years or so, the Islamists have found an infidel supporter (pseudo) of their faith. He is none other than Dr. Maurice Bucaille who was in France in 1920. At one time, he was the chief of the surgical clinic of the University of Paris. In 1976, he published a book entitled "The Bible, The Qur’an and science.” Ever since its publication, the Islamists have found a great sanctuary in this book whenever the question of science and Qur’an is raised. Bucaille’s writings have become not only a source of inspiration for them, but it also has become their principal source to confront the secularists who point out the various ambiguities, inconstancies and the unscientific nature that one could find scattered all over Qur’an.

In his book, Dr. Bucaille discusses the following main topics as revealed in the Qur’an

The Creation of the heavens and the Earth

Astronomy and the Qur’an

The Earth

Human Reproduction

If one reads Dr. Bucaille's discourse on these topics, it does not take much intelligence to note the twisted logic and his clever selection of only those verses that serve his purposes. There is not enough space in this short essay to deal with each and every aspect of Dr. Bucaille's topics. One striking point however is that he only elucidates a natural phenomenon as described in the Qur’an and interprets that natural phenomenon as the scientific explanation in the Qur’an. (For details to a rebuttal to Dr. Maurice Bucaille please visit www.freespeech.org/rationalthinking or refer to "The Qur’an and the Bible in the Light of History & Science" by Dr. William Campbell, publisher Middle East Resources 1992). This is absolutely unacceptable to anyone who has the slightest idea what scientific knowledge is all about.

Take for example the case of "water cycle.” Dr. Bucaille tries to depict that the Qur’an had the advance knowledge of this natural phenomenon before anyone could discover it. This is totally untrue. Water cycle is really an observable natural fact that is understood even by an illiterate and uneducated (in modern science) person. This water cycle consists of the following phases. (1) Water evaporates from the land, lakes, rivers; seas etc. (2) Water is transformed in to cloud. (3) Cloud gives rain. (4) The rain replenishes the water in land. (5) Water runs to the rivers, lakes and then to the sea. The cycle then repeats. There is no doubt that this phenomenon was clearly understood even by the pre-historic people that enabled them to invent the system of agriculture, which is largely dependent on this cycle. Today, even the primary school children are aware of this cycle of nature. To say that the "water cycle" is something that is discovered by the Qur’an is simply laughable and reveals nothing but the real motive as to why Dr. Bucaille is so inclined in pleasing the Islamists. Let us look for some clues to this matter.

Dr. Bucaille was appointed the family physician of the late King Faisal of Saudi Arabia. King Faisal introduced him to the Islamic religion and its source, that is, the Qur’an and Hadith. At that time, Dr. Bucaille was a stereotyped westerner who had prejudicial ideas about Islam and the Qur’an.

He thought that if only he could please the Islamists by writing a few good things about Islam he can have a good share of the petro-dollar that was pouring in Saudi Arabia. This will be better than remaining as a lowly physician to the king. So he learned the Arabic language and started to study the Qur’an and wrote the book, "The Bible, The Qur’an and Science". Money—he did make and plenty of it. This is due to the fact that almost all the Islamic countries have translated his book in their languages and it is a must read book for the new Mullahs. Also, consider how much blessings he had received from all the oil rich Seikh doms. For all of these, he is deeply grateful to his paymaster, the Arabs. In fact, in the lengthy introduction part of his book he writes "The debt of gratitude I owe to the late King Faisal, whose memory I salute with deepest respect, is indeed very great: the fact that I was given signal honour of hearing him speak on Islam and was able to raise with him certain problems concerning the interpretation of the Qur’an in relation to science is very cherished memory. It was an extremely great privilege for me to have gathered so much precious information from him personally and those around him".

Cacophony of azan (loud prayer call, a chief source of noise pollution in Islamic world) must be scientific

Tayammum (ablution with dirt and stones) must be scientific

Slavery must be scientific

Death for apostasy must be scientific.

Islamic genocide (like Bangladesh) must be scientific.

Cutting off hands and feet for petty theft must be scientific.

Using stones to relieve oneself must be scientific.

Drinking the Camel’s urine must be scientific.

Beating the wives to make them obedient must be scientific

Killing infidels must be scientific.

All the actions of the Talibans must be scientific.

And so on.

TO : ACHMAD & WBC,

REF :
2. Prof. H. A. R. Gibb dalam buku "Mohammadanism", London, 1953, p. 33, berkata seba-gai berikut: "Nah, jika memang Qur'an itu hasil karyanya sendiri, maka orang lain dapat menandinginya. Cobalah mereka mengarang sebuah ungkapan seperti itu. Kalau sampai mereka tidak sanggup dan boleh dikatakan mereka pasti tidak mampu, maka sewajarnyalah mereka menerima Qur'an sebagai bukti yang kuat tentang mukjizat."


SILAHKAN BUKTIKAN ANDA BERDUA (KALAU PERLU MINTA BANTUAN SEMUA NETTER TEMAN SEHATI ANDA KALAU PERLU LAGI MINTA BANTUAN KE BAPAK MU DISANA) UNTUK MEMBUAT ---SATU AYAT --- AJA...INGAT SATU --- AYAT AJA ----
