Far from encouraging renunciation of the world, Islam calls upon mankind to study the existence of God, and reflect on it. Indeed, the Glorious Quran contains many scientific facts concerning varied fields such as botany, physiology, embryology, geology, geography, etc. This is not surprising to a Muslim because the Quran itself declares that it will convince people of its veracity in every age:
“Soon will We show them our Signs in the (furthest) regions (of the earth), and in their own souls, until it becomes manifest to them that this is the Truth. Is it not enough that thy Lord doth witness all things?” [Al-Quran 41:53]
When the late French President Francisco Mitra took over in France 1981, France requested from Egypt in the late eighties to host mummy of Pharaoh to conduct Archaeological tests and examinations.Infact the new president was interested in all kinds of research, and preservation a body for about 3000 years was no ordinary phonema.
.The dead body was dispatched to france and france was giving it a royal reception. At the Plane staircase French President, his ministers and senior French officials was lined up and bend while receiving Pharaoh
When Pharaoh’s royal reception ceremonies on the land of France ended, the mummy carried in parade not less majesty than the reception to a special ward in the French Archaeological centre where the top Surgeons and autopsies in France start to study the mummy and discover it’s secrets.
The chief surgeon and in charge of the study on this mummy was Dr. Maurice Bucaille an eminent French surgeon, scientist, scholar.
Therapists interested in renovating the mummy, While the attention of Dr. Maurice is an attempt to discover how this Pharaonic king died, in late hours of the night the final results appeared.
.. the salt Remnants in his body
was the biggest evidence that he died drowning, and his body was extracted from the sea after drowning immediately, Then quickly they carried an Embalming process of the body in order to preserve it.
But there was a matter Puzzled him which is How this body remained safer than others mummies although it was extracted from the sea!!!
Dr. Maurice was Preparing a Final report which he believed
But he strongly denounced this news and find it odd, such a discovery Cannot be known away of the evolution of modern science and help of most advance computer devices.
Someone told him that there “Quran” who they believe in tells a story about his drowning and body preservation after that, Dr. Maurice get more astonished and he start questioning… how this happened??? If this mummy been detected only in 1898 before two hundred year ago, while Quran is available before one thousand and four hundred years?
How it fit in mind while all mankind, not only Arabs did not know anything about the ancient Egyptians mummification of pharaoh’s corpses before a few decades of time?
Dr.Maurice Bucaille sat that night, staring on body of Pharaoh thinking carefully about what his college have whispered to him that the Muslim Quran speaks about the survival of this body after drowning !!!
While the Bible talks about the sinking of Pharaoh in his pursuit of prophet Mousses (Peace be upon him) without being subjected to the fate of his body .. And he says to himself: Is it conceivable that his mummy is for Pharaoh, who was chasing Moses? Is it conceivable that Mohammed knows this more than a thousand years?
Dr.Maurice was unable to sleep, and asked them to bring him the Torah, He went to read..
Torah saying: water Return and covered the vehicles and all Pharaoh Army Knights who entered the sea behind and no one survived.
Dr.Maurice Bucaille remained puzzled.. even the Bible did not talk about the survival of this body and its preservation.
After the Pharaoh’s body was treated and renovated the mummy returned to Egypt, but Dr.Maurice mind and conscience was restless since the shocking news that Muslims knows about this body,
He belt HIS baggage and decided to travel to Muslims country
to interview a number of Muslim Scholars autopsy.
There he made the first talk with them about what he discovered that Pharaoh’s body preservation after
Drowning .. So, someone of them opened Quran and he read him as Almighty saying:
(“This day shall We save thee in the body, that thou mayest be a sign to those who come after thee! but verily, many among mankind are heedless of Our Signs!”)
he deeply influenced by the verse .. And strongly shake that made him stand in front of attendance and shout loudest voice: I have entered Islam and I believe on this Quran.
Dr.Maurice Bucaille returned to France in a deferent condition, than he went with .. There he stayed ten years does not have job but conformity of The newly discovered scientific facts
with the Holy Quran, and the search for a single scientific contradiction
in Holy Quran, Then he outcome of meaning Holy Quran Speaks:
(No falsehood can approach it from before or behind it: It is sent down by One Full of Wisdom, Worthy of all Praise.) Fussilat [41:42]
The fruit of those years Dr. Maurice spent came out when he authored a book about Quran that
shook the entire Western States scientists, the title of the book:
From the first edition it has run out of all the libraries and then reprinted hundreds of thousands
after it had been translated from the original language to Arabic, English, Indonesian, Farsi, Urdu, Turkish, and German etc…
Then spreads to all libraries in the East and West.
Today, Dr Maurice Bucaille is an active personality in the propagation of Islam and his contribution in linking science and Islam remained the best work ever done.
