Abdul Majeed Al-Zindani

In 1984 a Muslim scholar named Abdul Majeed al-Zindani formed the Commission on scientific signs in the Quran and sunnah, a body sponsored by the Saudi government to discover information in Islamic texts which describe natural phenomena that could not be known at the time of Prophet Muhammad and must therefore have been revealed via a supernatural source.

During the 1980's and 1990's Zindani organized various events in relation to this project, to which scientists from around the world (mainly the west) were invited to talk. The ultimate result of these events was a documentary by Zindani, This is the Truth, in which some of these scientists were shown to be confirming the miraculous nature of the Quran, or were quoted as making statements off camera. This documentary was followed up in 1998 by a book of the same name, authored by Abdullah M al-Rehaili, which is now in its 3rd edition.
