Kenali Tokoh : Dr. Gary Miller

Disalin tampal dari : Institut Al-Qayyim

Dr. Gary Miller (Abdul Ahad Omar): Beliau, yang berasal dari Kanada, merupakan seorang pakar matematik yang mendalami ilmu teologi (ketuhanan) Kristian.

Pada tahun 1978 beliau dihadiahkan al-Quran dan selepas membacanya barulah beliau sedar tentang kepincangan Bible dan kebenaran al-Quran.

Beliau terus memeluk agama Islam dan merupakan seorang pendakwah Muslim yang komited hinggalah ke hari ini. Antara tulisan beliau yg menarik ialah yang bertajuk “The Amazing Quran” (Quran Yang Mengagumkan) . Dalam tulisan ini beliau membuktikan bahawa al-Quran adalah wahyu dan tidak mungkin ditulis oleh manusia dengan menggunakan pendekatan saintifik.

“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 Qur’an to try to find any mistakes that he might take advantage of while inviting Muslims to convert to Christianity. He expected the Qur’an 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 Muhammad (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 Qur’an 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 “Aishah” (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 Qur’an 25 times while the name of “Muhammad” (Peace Be Upon Him) was mentioned only 4 times, so he became more confused. He started reading the Qur’an 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’a (Women) that says:

“Do they not consider the Qur’an (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 Qur’an 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 Qur’an, on the contrary, tells you that it has no mistakes and asks you to try to find one and you won’t find any.”
