Dr. Maurice Bucaille is an eminent French surgeon, scientist, scholar and author of “THE BIBLE THE QUR’AN AND MODERN SCIENCE”, and “WHAT IS THE ORIGIN OF MAN?” which contains the result of his research into the Judeo-Christian Revelation and the Qur’an. It is a unique contribution in the field of religion and science.


Being an outstanding scientist, he was selected to treat the mummy of Merneptah (pharaoh) which he did. During his visit to Saudi Arabia he was shown the verses of the Holy Qur’an in which Allah - God Almighty says that the dead body of the Pharaoh will be preserved as a ‘sign’ for posterity.


 An impartial scientist like Dr. Bucaille, who (being also a Christian) was conversant with the Biblical version of Pharaoh’s story as being drowned in pursuit of Prophet Moses. He was pleasantly surprised to learn that unknown to the world till only late, the Holy Qur’an made definite prediction about the preservation of the body of that same Pharaoh of Moses’ time. This led Dr. Bucaille to study the Qur’an thoroughly after learning the Arabic language. The final conclusion of his comparative study of the Qur’an and the Bible is that the statements about scientific phenomena in the Holy Qur’an are perfectly in conformity with the modern sciences whereas the Biblical narrations on the same subjects are scientifically entirely unacceptable.


The present booklet, which is a lecture given by Dr. Bucaille on the subject “The Qur’an and Modern Science” at the Commonwealth Institute London, will provide guidance towards the eternal truth about Islam.
