Japanese research team President embrace Islam May 21, 2008

A scientific miracle of the Holy Quran

Dr. Taha Ibrahim Khalifa, former dean and Professor of medicinal plants and drugs at Al-Azhar University and tells the following article about a Quran miracle.

Metallothionein (MT): material which is produced by humans and animals brains in small quantities. This material is a protein that contains Sulfur which can easily bind with zinc, iron and phosphorus. This substance is considered very vital to the human body in the sense of reducing cholesterol, performing metabolism, strengthening the heart, and controlling breath.

MT production increases gradually between the ages of 15 to 35 years. Then, the production level decrease till it stops at the age of sixty. That is why it was not easy to obtain MT from humans. Also, small amount of MT was found in animals.

Therefore, scientists kept searching for MT in plants. A team of Japanese scientists searched for this magical substance that works as a removal of the symptoms of aging. The team found subject substance only in two types of plants; fig and olive.

The sincerity of Allah Almighty says in his holy book:

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

“[1] By the Fig and the Olive, [2] And the Mount of Sinai, [3] And this City of security, [4] We have indeed created man in the best of moulds, [5] Then do We abase him (to be) the lowest of the low”

Let’s just think for a moment in the oath of God Almighty in fig and olive. Then, let’s try to link it directly to the creation of human beings in the best manner and then abasing them to the lowest of the low.

After MT was deduce from figs and olives, scientists found that the use of MT from fig or olive alone did not give the expected benefit for the human health. The benefits were only seen when MT that is extracted from fig was mixed with MT that is extracted from olive. After noticing that, the Japanese team tried to find the best mix ratio between fig and olive that provides the best influence.

The best mix ratio was found to be 1 fig to 7 olives!

Dr. Taha Ibrahim Khalifa has searched the Holy Quran and found that fig was mentioned once while olive was mentioned six times explicitly and one time implicitly in Al-Mo’minoon chapter:

“[20] Also a tree springing out of Mount Sinai, which produces oil, and relish for those who use it for food.”

Dr. Taha has sent all the information that he gathered from the Holy Quran to the Japanese research team. After verifying that the discovered information were mentioned in the Holy Quran 1427 years ago, the President of the Japanese research team declared his Islam and the research team surrendered the patent to Dr. Taha Ibrahim Khalifa.

3. Believer - June 30, 2008

Can someone give more information about the Japanese guy? Like his name for example. I myself would like to believe such news but I like to see more evidence to this.
Thank you all.

4. Muslim brother - October 22, 2008

Salamu Alaikum, Brothers and sisters I am with the comment from Believer, such news cant be passed and we start talking about it world wide without having more details and facts .. who is Dr. Ibrahim Khalifa and where is that Japanese team … etc
None Muslims start making jokes on us coz we always send news without any proof

5. Salim Abdallah - October 25, 2008

It would be great if we can have the details of the Japanese Doctor and his team. Such information will is needed to complete this wonderful story.

6. Abdul Z. - October 27, 2008

Since Dr Taha Ibrahim is a researcher, he should know that listing his resources and the name of the Jap. research team and the its president is essential to support his claim. This aricle makes no scientific sense unless more sources are provided.

Another thing, if this is true, the hard work is done by the Jap. team not by Dr. Taha Ibrahim. Still I would like to see a real link to the Jap. team and their research findings.


7. Yousef Eisa - November 6, 2008

I searched Google for Metallothionein but I could not find any reference to such research about the benefits of figs and olives. Such stories of scientific discoveries that supposedly verify the Quran should be accomplished by accurate references that can looked up and verified. otherwise such stories lose credibility and would not be taken seriously.

8. Mohammad - November 9, 2008

Quran is above all doubts because it is the Word of God (Allah), but, we need proof for all claims by people.
What is the scientific website? research center name? of the Japanese researchers?
How did they know Dr. Taha and why did they ask for his help?
What is the name(s) of the Japanese who have became Muslim?
Where an we find Dr. Taha (No reference in Al-Azhar, nor the internet, except in this topic)
I agree very much with the comment (3) above.
I went searching the web for Dr. Taha, and the only reference to this (supposed to be a dean and a doctor) is on this topic only “Strange , huh?”
The MT’s referred to are Protiens that help the body to get rid of poisonous heavy metal, this protien is produced by all living cells in Humans all the way down to Moulds (Algae), and it was never mentioned that it can be improved by (Figs Nor Olives Alone), it is improved by Sulphur and Vitamins found in Fruits and Vegitables.
For the Article to be honest all missing innformation have to be known.
(We do not need fabricated stories to improve our Faith)
