Drawing references from Stephen Hawking and verses of the Quran that have already been interpreted by Islamic scholars, a Malaysian soil scientist sets out to compare what we know now about geography and natural processes and what Islamic scholars believed was knowledge already found in the Quran. The seven chapters cover the origins of the Universe, the planet Earth, geological processes, soils, the creation of life, agriculture, and the destruction of life. Illustrative cases are taken from Malaysia. With references and index.
