"The above observation makes the hypothesis advanced by those who see Muhammad as the author of the Qur'an 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?"

Professor Siaveda, Professor of Marine Geology, Japan 402

“… Shaykh Az-Zindani showed us that the scientist is actually confirming what the Qur'aan is saying, what has been said already many, many years ago in the Qur'aan. Actually, that scientists are now discovering what has been said before, I think this is important. … and I am sure that all of us are going home and are now thinking more about the relationship between religion and marine science.”

"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."

"It is difficult to imagine that this type of knowledge was existing at that time, around 1400 years back. Maybe some of the things they have simple ideas about, but to describe those things in great detail is very difficult. So this is definitely not simple human knowledge.

Professor Dorja Rao, Professor of Marine Geology teaching at King Abdulaziz University, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. 369

“so I see nothing here in conflict with the concept that divine intervention was involved in what he was able to write.”
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 403


“I say, I am very much impressed by finding true astronomical facts in Qur'an, 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'an and by answering to the questions, I think I can find my future way for investigation of the universe." Professor Yushidi Kusan – Director of the Tokyo Observatory, Tokyo, Japan. 369
