Modern sciences stem from Holy Quran: professor

TEHRAN, May 26 (MNA) – The retired vice-chancellor of the Women’s University of south Punjab believes that modern sciences, including physics, are originated from the Holy Quran.

Professor Saadia Khawarkhan Chishti made the statement in her Friday’s visit to Astan-e Qods Razavi Museum in the northeastern capital Mashhad.


She wrote the book “Islam’s Ummul Kitab” in eight volumes, two of which are taught at Pakistan Air Force Academy, Marine Academy, and universities in the country.


“To make the youth closer to Islam, we are duty-bound to prove that the centuries-old efforts of Muslim scholars have made modern sciences accessible to the Europeans,” she added. 


The professor said the main aim behind her trip to Iran is to be in close contact with Muslim scholars.


Chishti is currently the founding president of CHEC-Pakistan, a chapter of CHEC-London. She obtained her M.Sc. and Ph.D. in education from Cornell University, Ithaca, NY.


She was the only woman of the Council of Islamic Ideology, government of Pakistan, for six years and an ex-officio member of the Federal Council of Pakistan.


Chishti served the Ministry of Education of Pakistan as director of public instruction (colleges, Punjab) and chairperson of Commission for Women's University. She was also a visiting fellow of Oxford University, UK, and Villanova University, the U.S.
