"That is a difficult question which I have been thinking about since our discussion here. I am impressed at how remarkably some of ancient writings seem to correspond to modern and recent Astronomy. I am not a sufficient scholar of human history to project myself completely and reliably into circumstances that 1400 years ago would have prevailed.
Certainly, I would like to leave it at that, that what we have seen is remarkable, it may or may not admit of scientific explanation, there may well have to be something beyond what we understand as ordinary human experience to account for writings that we have seen."
"I say, I am very much impressed by finding true astronomical facts in Qur'ān, and for us modern astronomers have been studying very small piece of universe. We have concentrated our efforts for understanding of very small part. Because by using telescopes, we can see only very few parts of sky without thinking about whole universe. So by reading Qur'ān and by answering to questions, I think I can find my future way for investigation of universe."
