425)The Peter McKnight 4-part series should be read alongside my Blogpost Four Hundred to make them more relevant and meaningful for Muslims

The preceding four posts of mine(Blogposts 421 to 424) consist of an outstanding 4-part series on Science and Religion written by Peter McKnight of the Vancouver Sun newspaper and each part is also available to listen to on video(video link at the bottom of each post):

For this 4-part series to be more relevant and meaningful to Muslims I recommend that you read my Blogpost Four Hundred first. It contains about a hundred quotes and excerpts on the subjects of Knowledge, Intellect, Creation, Science and Religion made by the Noble Quran, Prophet Muhammad, Aga Khan IV, Aga Khan III, Imam Ali, Imam Jafar As Sadiq, Abu Yakub Al Sijistani, Nasir Khusraw, Hamiduddin Al Kirmani, Albert Einstein, Aristotle and Azim Nanji:

The Qur'an itself repeatedly recommends Muslims to become better educated in order better to understand God's creation: Aga Khan IV(2007)
The Quran tells us that signs of Allah's Sovereignty are found in the contemplation of His Creation: Aga Khan IV(2007)
This notion of the capacity of the human intellect to understand and to admire the creation of Allah will bring you happiness in your everyday lives: Aga Khan IV(2007)
Islam, eminently logical, placing the greatest emphasis on knowledge, purports to understand God's creation: Aga Khan IV(2006)
The first and only thing created by God was the Intellect(Aql): Prophet Muhammad(circa 632CE)
