of the Department of Anatomy, University of Toronto, Canada. He stimulated a great deal of interest within Islam by his article "A Scientist's Interpretation of References to Embryology in The Qur'an". Because of his influential position, many Muslims thought that scientific information on embryology has vindicated the Qur'an. Interestingly, however, Dr. Moore has not risked his reputation in the medical establishment by publishing his findings except in Islamic journals. The Islamic edition of his textbook is not even available in the British Library or the U.S. Library of Congress, nor in the medical libraries in Western countries. It is thus clear that this article does not find its recognition among his peer scientists.
The article Embryology in the Qur'an examines Dr. Moore's claims carefully with references to already known views and scientific facts.
Further discussion on this issue are found in the rebuttal to It is Truth and the rebuttals to the Islamic Awareness site (*, *).
