International Conference on the Miracles of the Qur'an and Sunnah
The International Commission on Scientific Signs in the Qur’an and the Sunnah, is an independent organisation, but under the Umbrella of the Makkah-based Muslim World League. Its Secretary General is Dr. Abdullah bin Abdul-Aziz al-Mosleh.
Dr. Abdullah Mosleh said the Conference aims to discuss the effects of the Holy Qur’an’s scientific miracles on human thought. “It will discuss the scientific signs in the Qur’an and the Sunnah in such fields as medicine, biology, astronomy. Cosmology, geology, marine sciences and humanities,” Dr. Mosleh said.
There are many new researches and new discoveries from the International Commission on the Miracles of the Qur’an and the Sunnah. Dr. Naseef said, “It is especially about the Habba Sawdah, the Black Seeds, the prospects and effects of black seeds on heart problem. Every disease can very much be treated by Habba Sawdah.”
Black Seeds and its curative virtues are from the ancient knowledge base of Prophetic medicine to new scientific research. This intersection between the Prophetic knowledge base matched with the learning from scientific research surely contributes to make the Sweet Sunnah Black Seed products totally effective and unique. Black Seed appropriately known as the “seed of blessing” is considered to be one of the greatest healing herbs of all times.
Black seed is Herbal medicine and has been known to reduce risk to illness and disease by strengthening immune system and protecting body’s most important organs. It is an excellent medicine used for millenniums to treat a variety of conditions related to respiratory health, skin, stomach and intestinal disorders, kidney & liver function, circulatory and immune system support, and to maintain and improve overall health.
There were many other important researches and theses. Dr. Naseef said, “There are ten researches about this matter. The thing which attracted my attention is that many Saudi lady researchers are conducting researches in the field of miracles of the Qur’an and Sunnah from all Universities. They are from the Ummul Qura University, Dammam University, King Faisal University and their theses are very accurate and it attracted the attention of the people.”
These researchers were from the Medical and General Science and other departments. They don’t have the department on the Miracles of the Qur’an and Sunnah. “Unfortunately, there is no separate department for the research on the Miracles of the Qur’an and the Sunnah. Although there were many recommendations that there should be department on the Miracles of the Qur’an and the Sunnah, but till today, no University has started that unfortunately,” said Dr. Naseef. .
