In a press statement issued here in connection with World

Scientists’ Day, Dr Mujahid Kamran said around 750 verses of the Holy Quran, which is 1/8th of the holy book, directed man to study the mysteries of the universe and to carefully observe nature.
He said unfortunately, the Muslims had made almost no contribution to the creation of scientific knowledge during the past few centuries which was the major reason for their weakness against the onslaught of knowledgeable nations. He concluded knowledge was the source of power, wealth and respect of nations.
