Medical Miracles of the Qur'an explores some of the Qur'anic references to medicine and science in the light of the latest scholarship. The Qur'an repeatedly asks man to reflect on the sings of Allah scattered in his own being and around him. For this is the way to gain his strong belief in Allah. Taking the cue from this Qur'anic directive, the Qur'anic allusions to medicine and science are elucidated in this work.
