The Parallel Realities of Modern Science and Islam  
"Islamic Science" -- I often encounter this expression when I meet fellow Muslims at social events and I state that I am a scientist during the perfunctory revealing of professions. Not infrequently, my discussion partners start talking about "Islamic Science" with a certain degree of nostalgia and pride, because for them it conjures up the names and works of Muslim scientists such as Ibn Sina (Avicenna) and Al-Biruni (Alberonius) who lived in the 10th and 11th centuries C.E. It is important to realize that they are just two of the most famous representatives of the large scientific enterprise that has flourished in Muslim history.

As shown by Seyyed Hossein Nasr, one of the world's foremost contemporary Muslim philosophers, Muslim scientists have pursued scientific research since the 8th century C.E., covering a vast range of disciplines ranging from astronomy and mineralogy to zoology and the medical sciences. However, the expression "Islamic Science" does not necessarily only refer to the fact that these scientists were Muslims.

12 Quranic Verses for Year End Reflection  
Prophet Muhammad reminds us,  "There are two of God's favors that are forgotten by many people: health and free time."

As the current year comes to and end and we start a new year, the following verses of the Quran reflect on the importance of time.

    Your Guardian-Lord is God, Who created the heavens and the earth in six eons, and is firmly established on the throne (of authority): He covers the night as a veil over the day, each seeking the other in swift succession: He created the sun, the moon, and the stars, (all) governed by laws under His command. Is it not His to create and to govern? Blessed be God, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds! - (Quran 7:54

    The number of months in the sight of God is twelve (in a year) - so ordained by Him the day He created the heavens and the earth; of them four are sacred: this is the ever-true law [of God]. So wrong not yourselves therein, and combat the Pagans all together as they fight you all together. But know that God is with those who restrain themselves. - (Quran 9:36
