Assalamu alaikum / Peace unto all,
The Qur'an, through its constant reminders to ponder over Allah's creation and to use our reasoning, had once inspired generations of Muslims who excelled in research and discovery in such fields as medicine, astronomy and mathematics.
Please watch this short interesting video by Harun Yahya (duration 7 mins 25 sec):

Oh no, not more “Pseudo Science” from Adnan Oktar.Reply

Surprisingly, considering it's by Harun Yahya, this is actually rather a good video.
It's perfectly fair to applaud the achievements of Muslim scientists, who were by far the most advanced in the world during what Westerners call the Dark Ages.
There is a strange moment during the video, though, when the voiceover talks about important discoveries, and then says "Here are some of them..." We then get a list, not of discoveries, but of general areas of study. Apparently, Zakariya Qazwini discovered the heart and brain, and several individuals are credited with the discovery of mathematics. This is nonsense, of course, and it would be good if Harun Yahya had credited his viewers with sufficient intelligence and presented their actual discoveries within those subjects.
That's a minor complaint, though. Overall, I was quite impressed.
