By: Dr Garry Miller:
A very important Christian missionary converted to Islam and became a
major herald for Islam, he was a very active missionary and was very
knowledgeable about the Bible...

This man likes mathematics so much, that's why he likes logic. One
day, he decided to read the Quran to try to find any mistakes that he
might take advantage of while inviting Muslims to convert to
Christianity.... He expected the Koran to be an old book written 14
centuries ago, a book that talks about the desert and so on...He was
amazed from what he found. He discovered that this Book had what no
other book in the world has.... He expected to find some stories about
the hard time that the Prophet Mohammad (Peace Be Upon Him) had, like
the death of his wife Khadijah (may Allah be pleased with her) or the
death of his sons and daughters...however, he did not find anything
like that... and what made him even more confused is that he found a
full "sura"(chapter) in the Koran named "Mary" that contains a lot of
respect to Mary(peace be upon her) which is not the case even in the
books written by Christians nor in their bibles.
He did not find a Sura named after "Fatimah"(the prophet's daughter)
nor "Aa’ishah"(the Prophet's wife), may Allah(God) be pleased with
both of them. He also found that the name of Jesus(Peace Be Upon Him)
was mentioned in the Koran 25 times while the name of "Mohammed"(Peace
Be Upon Him) was mentioned only 4 times, so he became more confused.
He started reading the Koran more thoroughly hoping to find a mistake
but he was shocked when he read a great verse which is verse number 82
in Surat Al-Nisa'(Women) that says:

“Do they not consider the Koran (with care)? Had it been from other
than Allah, they would surely have found therein much discrepancy”.

Dr Miller says about this verse: “ One of the well known scientific
principles is the principle of finding mistakes or looking for
mistakes in a theory until it’s proved to be right (Falsification Test)
…what’s amazing is that the Holy Quran asks Muslims and non-muslims to
try to find mistakes in this book and it tells them that they will
never find any”. He also says about this verse: no writer in the world
has the courage to write a book and say that it’s empty of mistakes,
but the Quran, on the contrary, tells you that it has no mistakes and
asks you to try to find one and you won’t find any.

Another verse that Dr Miller reflected on for a long time is the verse
number 30 in Surat “Al-Anbiya’”(The Prophets): “ Do not the
Unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together
(as one unit of Creation), before We clove them asunder? We made from
water every living thing. Will they not then believe?”

He says: “ This verse is exactly the subject of the scientific
research that won the Noble prize in 1973 and was about the theory of
the “Great Explosion”. According to this theory, the universe was the
result of a great explosion that leads to the formation of the
universe with its skies and planets”.

Dr Miller says: “ Now we come to what’s amazing about the Prophet
Mohammed (PBUH) and what’s pretended about the devils helping him, God
says: “No evil ones have brought down this (Revelation), it would
neither suit them nor would they be able (to produce it). Indeed they
have been removed far from even (a chance of) hearing
it” (26:210-212). “When thou do read the Quran, seek Allah's
protection from Satan the Rejected One” (16:98).

You see? can this be the devil’s way to write a book? how can he write
a book then tells you to ask God for protection from this devil before
reading that book? those are miraculous verses in this miraculous
book! and has a logical answer to those who pretend that it’s from the
devil”. And among the stories that amazed Dr Miller is the story of
the Prophet (PBUH) with Abu-Lahab… Dr Miller says: “ This man (Abu
Lahab) used to hate Islam so much that he would go after the Prophet
wherever he goes to humiliate him. If he saw the prophet talking to
strangers, he used to wait till he finishes and then ask them: what
did Mohammed tell you? If he said it’s white then it’s in reality
black and if he said it’s night then it’s day. He meant to falsify all
what the prophet says and to make people suspicious about it. And 10
years before the death of Abu Lahab, a sura was inspired to the
prophet, named “Al-Masad”. This sura tells that Abu Lahab will go to
hell, in other words, it says that Abu Lahab will not convert to
Islam. During 10 years, Abu Lahab could have said: “Mohammed is saying
that I will not become a Muslim and that I will go to the hell fire,
but I’m telling you now that I want to convert to Islam and become a
Muslim. What do you think about Mohammed now? Is he saying the truth
or no? Does his inspiration come from God?”
But Abu Lahab did not do that at all although he was disobeying the
prophet in all matters, but not in this one. In other words, it was as
if the prophet (PBUH) was giving Abu Lahab a chance to prove him
wrong! But he did not do that during 10 whole years! he did not
convert to Islam and did not even pretend to be a Muslim!! Throughout
10 years, he had the chance to destroy Islam in 1 minute! But this did
not happen because those are not the words of Mohammed (PBUH) but the
words of God Who knows what’s hidden and knows that Abu Lahab will not
become a Muslim.

How can the prophet (PBUH) know that Abu Lahab will prove what is said
in that Sura if this was not inspiration from Allah? How can he be
sure throughout 10 whole years that what he has (the Quran) is true if
he did not know that it’s inspiration from Allah?? For a person to
take such a risky challenge, this has only one meaning: that this is
inspiration from God.

“Perish the hands of the Father of Flame (Abu Lahab)! perish he! No
profit to him from all his wealth, and all his gains! Burnt soon will
he be in a Fire of blazing Flame! His wife shall carry the (crackling)
wood; As fuel! A twisted rope of palm-leaf fibre round her (own)
neck!” (surat Al-Masad).

Dr Miller says about a verse that amazed him: one of the miracles in
the Quran is challenging the future with things that humans cannot
predict and to which the “Falsification Test” applies, this test
consists of looking for mistakes until the thing that is being tested
is proved to be right. For example, let’s see what the Quran said
about the relation between Muslims and Jews. Quran says that Jews are
the major enemies for Muslims and this is true until now as the main
enemy for Muslims are the Jews.

Dr Miller continues: this is considered a great challenge since the
Jews have the chance to ruin Islam simply by treating Muslims in a
friendly way for few years and then say: here we are treating you as
friends and the Quran says that we are your enemies, the Quran must be
wrong then! But this did not happen during 1400 years!! and it will
never happen because those are the words of The One who knows the
unseen (God) and not the words of humans.

Dr Miller continues: can you see how the verse that talks about the
enmity between Muslims and Jews constitutes a challenge to the human
mind? “Strongest among men in enmity to the Believers wilt thou find
the Jews and Pagans; and nearest among them in love to the Believers
wilt thou find those who say, "We are Christians": because amongst
these are men devoted to learning and men who have renounced the
world, and they are not arrogant. And when they listen to the
revelation received by the Messenger, thou wilt see their eyes
overflowing with tears, for they recognize the truth: they pray: "Our
Lord! We believe; write us down among the witnesses” (5: 82-84)

This verse applies to Dr Miller as he was a Christian but when he knew
the truth, he believed and converted to Islam and became a herald. May
Allah support him.

Dr Miller says about the unique style of the Quran that he finds
wonderful: no doubt there is something unique and amazing in Quran
that is not present anywhere else, as the Quran gives you specific
information and tells you that you did not know this before. For
example: "This is part of the tidings of the things unseen, which We
reveal unto thee (O Prophet!) by inspiration: thou was not with them
when they cast lots with arrows, as to which of them should be charged
with the care of Maryam: nor was thou with them when they disputed
(the point)” (3: 44).

“Such are some of the stories of the Unseen, which We have revealed
unto thee: before this, neither thou nor thy People knew them. So
persevere patiently: for the End is for those who are righteous” (11:
49). “Such is one of the stories of what happened unseen, which We
reveal by inspiration unto thee: nor was thou (present) with them when
they concerted their plans together in the process of weaving their
plots” (12: 102)

Dr Miller continues: “ No other holy book uses this style, all the
other books consist of information that tells you where this
information came from. For example, when the (distorted) holy bible
talks about the stories of the ancient nations, it tells you that a
this king lived in a this place and a that leader fought in that
battle, and that a certain person had a number of kids and their names
are…. But this book (distorted Bible) always tells you that if you
want to know more, you can read a certain book since that information
came from that book”.

Dr Garry Miller continues: “this is in contrary to the Quran which
gives you the information and tells you that it’s new!! And what’s
amazing is that the people of Mecca at that time -time of inspiration
of those verses- used to hear those verses and the challenge that the
information in those verses was new and was not known by Mohammed
(PBUH) nor by his people at that time, and despite that, they never
said: we know this and it is not new, and they did not say: we know
where Mohammed came from with those verses. This never happened, but
what happened is that nobody dared to say that he was lying to them
because those was really new information, not coming from the human
mind but from Allah who knows the unseen in the past, the present and
the future”.

May Allah reward Dr Miller for this nice reflection on the Book of
