The evidence of God in nature and science is discussed in God Arises. This book is the result of thirty years in exhaustive research, attempts to present the basic teachings of religion in the light of modern knowledge and in a manner consistent with modern scientific method. After a thorough investigation of the subject the writer has reached the conclusion that religious teachings are academically valid and are understandable and intellectually acceptable as much as any of the theories propounded by men of science. This book deals with issues such as the challenge of modern knowledge, the method of argument, nature and science speak about God, argument for the life hereafter, affirmation of prophethood, challenge of the Quran, religion and society and the life that we seek. There is an explanation in simple language of how 20th century research has on academic grounds totally demolished the atheistic claims put forward in the 18th and 19th centuries. The title of the book was inspired by a verse of the Bible. Islamic Medicine is an Islamic book that indicates the part played by scholars and physicians, especially of Persia in the transmission of medical science through the dark ages from the decline of the ancient to the rise of modern learning and to suggest to lovers of Persian and Arabic literature that they have allowed poets and euphuists to take up a disproportionate portion of their time.
This Islamic book deals with such concepts as the meaning of the term -Arabic Medicine’ to periods of Arabian and Islamic history, transmission of Greek learning, Syrian and Persian contributions, evolution of scientific terminology in Arabic, Arabian popular medicine, practice of medicine in the time of the Crusades, Persian medical works, introduction of European medicine into Muslim lands, outlines of Muslim cosmogony etc. Religion and Science is a book that deals with two kinds of knowledge, knowledge of things and knowledge of truth. In the case of truths unlike for things only indirect argument can throw light upon them. In the case of scientific truths the validity of indirect or inferential argument is a matter of general acceptance. Religious truths are also governed by inferential arguments and hence are deemed to fall into the same category as scientific truths. A Simple Guide to Islam’s Contribution to Science and Civilization discusses how Islam furthered the cause of science, Muslims and the foundation of physical science, western civilization as the offspring of Arab civilization in Spain and the intellectual achievements of early Muslims.
