Can science and religion ever be compatible and compliment each other, or are they always going to disagree and people will just have to choose one or the other? A lot of people would agree with this and consider most or all religions today as outdated and incompatible with science and modern times. This is a misconception, not all religions are this way, particularly if it's the Truth. To a logical and rational person it can be proven that the Qur’an and Islam are of the truth. The Holy Qur'an has many miracles in relation to science. Modern science has discovered just recently what the Qur’an had revealed more than 1400 years ago. This can be used as evidence that the Qur’an is the total, eternal and non-corrupted word of the Creator, Allah. While there are many errors and contradictions in the Bible with science, none can be found in the holy scriptures of Islam whatsoever, which were revealed well before the discoveries were made by modern scientists. Therefore, modern science supports Islam of its teachings which are unlikely to have been synthesized by Man so accurately, so long ago. What science and religion each contribute to our understanding of life can be thought of as the following:
Science: Here are some evidence, let's see what conclusions we can draw from them.
Religion: Here are some conclusions, now what evidence can we find to support them?
"We will soon show them Our signs in the Universe and inside their selves, until it will become quite clear to them that it is the truth. Is it not sufficient as regards your Lord that He is a witness over all things?" (Qur'an, 41:53)
The Miracles of the Qur’an will never end. There will never be a time where mankind can fully take in the knowledge that is in this Holy book. It is a miracle to all mankind, the word of God. There is no value that one can set to the words of the Creator. It is a treasure which guides those that want to succeed in this life and the hereafter.
"Do they not then consider the Qur'an carefully? Had it been from other than Allah, they would surely have found therein much contradiction and error." (Qur'an 41:53)
The well of Zamzam is located within the Masjid al Haram in Mecca, 20 meters east of the Kaaba, the holiest place in Islam. Islamic history states that Zamzam Well was revealed to Hajar, the wife of Ibrahim and mother of Ismail, around the year 2000 BC. According to Islamic tradition, she was desperately seeking water for her infant son, but could find none, as Makkah is located in a hot dry valley with few sources of water. Hajar ran several times back and forth in the scorching heat between the two hills of Safa and Marwah, looking for water, versions of the story say that the water suddenly appeared at the feet of Ishmael. As she ran from one place to another in search of water, her child rubbed his feet against the sand. A pool of water surfaced, and by the grace of God, shaped itself into a well which came to be called Zumzum water. This is a miracle in itself, as well as the rcent scientific finding. The story of Hajar and the divine origin of the Zamzam well is commemorated in the Islamic rites of pilgrimage, the Umrah and the Hajj. Like Hajar, male pilgrims are required to run/jog (women walk) between the hills of Safa and Marwa seven times, and then drink from the water of Zamzam. The difference between Zamzam water and other water was in the quantity of calcium and magnesium salts. The content of these was slightly higher in Zamzam water.
This may be why this water refreshes tired hajis, but more significantly, the water contained fluorides that have an effective germicidal action. In fact, the more you explore, the more wonders surface and you find yourself believing implicitly in the miracles of this water that God bestowed as a gift on the faithful coming from far and wide to the desert land for pilgrimage. This well has never dried up in over 4000 years. On the contrary it has always fulfilled the demand for water. It has always maintained the same salt composition and taste ever since it came into existence. Its potability has always been universally recognised as pilgrims from all over the world visit Ka'aba every year for Hajj and Umrah, but have never complained about it. Instead, they have always enjoyed the water that refreshes them. Zamzam water's appeal has always been universal. This water has never been chemically treated or chlorinated, as is the case with water pumped into cities. Biological growth and vegetation usually takes place in most wells. This makes the water unpalatable owing to the growth of algae causing taste and odour problems. But in the case of the Zamzam water well is that there wasn't any sign of biological growth.
