EDITOR’S FOREWORD

The Quran and Modern Science by Dr. Maurice Bucaille, elaborates the Scientific Miracles of the Qur’an. This is the edited version by Dr. Bilal Philips published in 2010.

This booklet by Dr. Maurice Bucaille has been in circulation for the past nineteen years and has been a very effective tool in presenting Islam to non-Muslims as well as introducing Muslims to aspects of the scientific miracle of the Quran. It is based on a transcription of a lecture given by Dr. Bucaille in French.

In this reprint, I decided to improve its presentation by simplifying the language and editing the text from an oral format to a pamphlet format. There were also passing references made by the author to material in his book, The Bible, the Quran and Science, which needed explanation. I took the liberty of including explanatory portions from his book where more detail was necessary. A few footnotes were also added for clarity and a hadith which the author mentioned was replaced due to its inauthenticity. There were also some corrections made to the historical material on the compilation of the Quran.

It is my hope that these slight improvements will make this excellent work even more effective in presenting the final revelation of God to mankind.

Dr. Bilal Philips | 2010
