The ‘Exhibition of Scientific Miracles in the Holy Quran’ is attracting both visitors and residents at Zabeel Hall, Dubai World Trade Centre. Held as part of the 13th edition of the Ramadan Forum, the exhibition is being hosted for the first time in the history of the forum.
The exhibition is a display of posters showcasing the verses related to scientific miracles in the Quran, linked to discoveries in contemporary science, with posters that are bilingual, offering explanations in English and corresponding illustrations and CGI (Computer-Generated Imagery) animations.
Mohamed Al Hashemi, Head of the organizing committee of the Ramadan Forum, said, “This year, we have added several new activities to the Ramadan Forum, of which the ‘Exhibition of Scientific Miracles in the Holy Quran’ is a key event. The exhibition is attracting a huge number of visitors of not only different nationalities but also of different religions. Further, there is a photo display outside the main hall for men and another one which is exclusive to women.”
The exhibition comprises two categories of visuals; the first category features verses related to scientific miracles in the Quran linked to the realities of contemporary scientific proofs, if any, while the second category showcases the stages of the origins of the universe starting from the ‘Big Bang’. Both the groups consist of six plates, each containing precious Quran verses that explain the scientific miracles in both Arabic and English.
Sheikh Saleh Al Mughamsi, who delivered an Arabic lecture on ‘Amongst the First to be Freed’ on July 7th, visited the exhibition with a group of forum officials and applauded the efforts of the organizers.
The 13th annual Ramadan Forum is organized by the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) and is being held under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation. The 12-day forum will run until July 14, 2014 at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC), offering an enhanced and bigger agenda of activities and events this year including educational programs, training workshops and more.
