In 2010, he authored Islam's Quantum Question: Reconciling Muslim Tradition and Modern Science. In the book, he argued that modern science must be integrated into the Islamic worldview, including the theory of biological and human evolution, which he maintains does not contradict Islamic tenets and ethos. He insisted that the Muslim world should take "scientific questions-quantum questions-with utmost seriousness if it is to recover its true heritage and integrity.

Islam’s ‘quantum question’, he argues, can be answered by a credible harmonization of Qur’anic belief and scientific truth. In its application of a specifically Muslim perspective to important topics like cosmology, divine action and natural selection, Islam’s Quantum Question makes a vital contribution to debate in the disputed field of ‘science and religion’.

Nidhal Guessoum, an astronomer at the American University of Sharjah, takes on this daunting task with his engaging book, Islam's Quantum Question: Reconciling Muslim Tradition and Modern Science. American readers familiar with the seemingly interminable "debates" between creationists and biologists on evolution, will not be surprised to find that many Muslims, depending on their background, also reject Darwin.

In secular Europe, the veracity of modern science is almost always taken for granted. Whether they think of the evolutionary proofs of Darwin or of spectacular investigation into the boundaries of physics conducted by CERN's Large Hadron Collider, most people assume that scientific enquiry goes to the heart of fundamental truths about the universe. Yet elsewhere, science is under siege. In the USA, Christian fundamentalists contest whether evolution should be taught in schools at all. And in Muslim countries like Tunisia, Egypt, Pakistan and Malaysia, a mere 15% of those recently surveyed believed Darwin's theory to be ""true"" or ""probably true."" This thoughtful and passionately argued book contends absolutely to the contrary: not only that evolutionary theory does not contradict core Muslim beliefs, but that many scholars, from Islam's golden age to the present, adopted a worldview that accepted evolution as a given. Guessoum suggests that the Islamic world, just like the Christian, needs to take scientific questions -- quantum questions -- with the utmost seriousness if it is to recover its true heritage and integrity. In its application of a specifically Muslim perspective to important topics like cosmology, divine action and evolution, the book makes a vital contribution to debate in the disputed field of ""science and religion.""

Excellent. Refreshing, intelligently written, rational. A welcome relief to Bucaille and Harun Yahya (yuck), and other Muslim authors writing about Islam, Quran, and Science who are well-meaning and well-intending, but just do not make sense scientifically and who are often very subjective. Thank you, I really needed to read a book like this one.

Author is a respected astrophysicists who has a an excellent command of science, Islam and their histories together.

But more than just talking about the big bang and evolution (and how easily Muslims could accommodated both with obvious verses), this book has an excellent, comprehensive, textbook like, primer on the Islamic philosophies, history of western scientific interpretation/philosophy and current contemporary views on science from the Muslim world.

Author is objective and thorough. Calls out bs where he believes it evident, sites directions in which the Muslim world needs to move in going forward and presents his opinions on the matter as well.

A must read for anyone remotely interested in Islam & science. If you haven't read this book then you probably shouldn't open your mouth.

This book provides an interesting overview of science as it is regarded in the Muslim world as well as a proposal by a Muslim scientist to reconcile his culture with a what is perceived by Muslim orthodoxy as a Western, materialist study. The book is worthwhile reading for anyone interested in the struggle between orthodoxy and secularism although it is not particularly well written.

"Islam's Quantum Question: Reconciling Muslim Tradition and Modern Science" by Nidhal Guessoum (2011). The Muslim author believes that most Muslim-oriented countries are not as technologically advanced as Western countries. The author believes that for Muslim countries to improve their impoverished economies that they need to study `Western science'. Essentially, the author wants Muslims to study western science by reading books or magazines discussing western science. However, the author believes that conservative, fundamentalist Muslim theologians [who like many fundamentalist Christians] fear Muslims reading Western science books will abandon Islam. [Not to go into many details, but I forget whether it is in the Quran or the ahadith, but these writings contend that the Muslim Prophet Mohammad said that (1) the bad-disease on the right wing of a fly found in one's soup can be offset by the good-medication on a fly's left wing will offset the bad wing: hence, mix both wings together; and (2) earthquakes are caused when Allah himself reaches down and rattles mountains that are like pegs in the earth: mountains exist so that Allah can rattle them to produce earthquakes to punish man for his/her sins. This is what is called `Islamic science' - stuff that comes from either the Koran or the ahadeeth.] So to overcome this anti-science mentality the author has scrounged through the al-Coran in finding dozens and dozens of ayat that seem to suggest that Muslims should read non-Islamic (science) books. The author sort of tosses out all of these ayats to see what will "stick to the wall" - a Muslim's mind - in hopefully enticing a Muslim to read Western science books or articles (like `National Geographic' or `Scientific American' magazines) - a really scandalous, `bida' (innovation) idea. The author discusses Charles Darwin and evolution lightly, he suggests that concepts of evolution can be pulled from the Quran. This book is an exasperating attempt by a thinking Muslim who urges that Muslims who want to expand beyond the shallow end of the gene pool need to start reading European scientific magazines. This is a book that needs to be translated into Arabic. However, something tells me that this book will never become required reading at the progressive al-Azhar University in Egypt. Essentially, this book is not great `cutting edge' Western science (it really doesn't reveal much modern science), but it is a worthy attempt to `get the camel's nose' through the fundamentalist Muslims' tent-door in shinning enlightening thinking into a closed mental chador. (The author is Professor of Physics and Astronomy at the American University of Sharjah.) [Compare this book with "The Book That Made Your World" by Vishal Mangalwadi. Also: "The Closing of the Muslim Mind" by Robert Reilly;
"The Truth About Muhammad" by Robert Spencer; & "Decline of Muslim States and Societies" by Misbah Islam.]

Especially liked his thorough background review of philosophy of science and how he calls out Harun Yahya as basically a charlatan.

The writer is intellectually very sound and acedemically very strong. I found the book highly informative and rich with the science knowledge. The writer has a strong grip on the knowledge of the Quran and Science.
The book elaborate contemporary approaches for Islam and science. Integration of word of God with the Work of God is wonderful.
