The Sensory Characteristics Of The Skin

An interview with Dr. Tagata Tagasone, by Shaikh Abdulmajed Alzindani>

Shaikh Zindani:
This man is uttering the Islamic creed (Shahada) and declaring that he is becoming a Muslim. This occurred during the Eighth Saudi Medical Conference which was convened in Riyadh.
He is Professor Tagata Tagasone, formerly Head of the Department of Anatomy and Embryology at the University of Shiang Mai in Thailand. He is now the Dean of the college of Medicine at that University.
We presented to Professor Tagasone some Quranic verses and Prophetic ahadith which deal with his specialization in the field of anatomy. He commented that they also had in their Buddhist books very accurate descriptions of embryonic development stages. We told him that we were very anxious and interested to see those descriptions and learn about these books.
A year later, Professor Tagasone came to King AbdulAziz University as an outside examiner. We reminded him of the statement he made one year before, but he apologized and said that he in fact had made that statement without ascertaining the matter. However, when he checked the Buddhist books he found that they contained nothing of relevance to the subject.
Upon this we presented to him a lecture written by Professor Keith Moore about the compatibility of modern embryology with what is contained in the Quran and the Sunnah  and we asked Professor Tagasone if he knew of Professor Keith Moore. He replied that he knew him of course, adding that Professor Moore was one of the most world-renowned scientists in that field.
When Professor Tagasone studied this article he also was greatly astonished. We asked him several questions in his field of specialization. One of the questions related to modern discoveries in dermatology about the sensory characteristics of the skin:
Dr. Tagasone Speaking: “Yes if the burn is deep.”
Translator Speaking: “You will be interested to know that in this book, the holy book – the Quran, there was a reference 1400 years ago which refers to the moment of punishment of the unbelievers by the fire of Hell and it states that when their skin is destroyed, Allah makes another skin for them so that they perceive the punishment by a fire, indicating knowledge about the nerve endings in the skin, and the verse is: “Those who reject our signs. We shall soon cast into the fire: as often as their skins are roasted through. We shall change them for fresh skins, that they may taste the chastisement: for Allah is exalted in power, wise” (Quran, 4:56)
So do you agree that this is a reference to the importance of the nerve endings in the skin in sensation, 1400 years ago?”
Dr. Tagasone Speaking: “Yes I agree. This knowledge about sensation had been known long before. Because it says that if somebody does something wrong, then he will be punished by burning his skin and then Allah puts a new skin on him, cover him, to make him know that the test is painful again. That means they knew many years ago that the receptor of pain sensation must be on the skin, so they put a new skin on.”
Shaikh Zindani: The skin is the centre of sensitivity to burns. Thus, if the skin is completely burnt by fire, it looses its sensitivity. It is for this reason that Allah will punish the unbelievers on the Day of Judgment by returning to them their skins time after time, as He, the Exalted and Glorified, said in the Quran:
“Those who reject our signs. We shall soon cast into the fire: as often as their skins are roasted through. We shall change them for fresh skins, that they may taste the chastisement: for Allah is exalted in power, wise” (Quran, 4:56)
We asked him the following question: “Is it possible that these verses came to the Prophet Muhammad, ma Allah Bless him and Grant him peace, from a human source?”
Professor Tagasone conceded that they could have never come from any human source. But he still asked about the source of that knowledge and from where could Muhammad have possibly received it?
We said, From Allah, the Most Glorified and Most Exalted”.
Then he asked: “But who is Allah?”
We replied, “He is the Creator of all that is in existence”. If you find wisdom then it is because it comes only from he one who is most wise. If you find knowledge in the making of this Universe, it is because the universe is the creation of the One Who has all knowledge. If you find perfection in the composition of these creations, then it is proof to you that it is the creation of the One Who knows best. And if you find mercy, then this bears witness to the fact that it is the creation of the One Who is Most Merciful. In the same way, if you perceive creation as belonging to one unified order and tied together firmly, then this is proof that it is the creation of the Only Creator, May He be Glorified and Exalted.
Professor Tagasone agreed with what we said to him. He returned to his country where he delivered several lectures about his new knowledge and discoveries. We were informed that five of his students converted to Islam as a result of these lectures. Then at the Eighth Saudi Medical Conference held in Riyadh, Professor Tagasone attended a series of lectures on Medical signs in the Quran and Sunnah.
Professor Tagasone spent four days with several scholars, Muslims and non-Muslims, talking about this phenomenon in the Quran and the Sunnah. At the end of those sessions Professor Tagasone stood up and said:   “In the last three years I became interested in the Quran, which Shaikh Abdulmajeed Azzindani gave me. Last year, I got Professor Keith Moore’s latest script from the Shaikh. He asked me to translate it into the Thai language and to give a few lectures to the Muslims in Thailand. I have fulfilled his request. You can see that in the videotape that I have given to the Shaikh as a gift.
From my study and what I have learned throughout this conference, I believe that everything that has been recorded in the Quran 1400 years ago must be the truth that can be proved by the scientific means. Since the Prophet Muhammad could neither read nor write, Muhammad must be a messenger who relayed this truth which was revealed to him as an enlightment by the one who is eligible creator. This creator must be God, or Allah. Therefore, I think this is the time to say “La ilaha illa Allah ” that is no god to worship except Allah, ” Muhammad Rasool Allah”, Muhammad is messenger of Allah.
Lastly, I must congratulate for the excellent and highly arrangement for this conference. I have learned not just from the scientific knowledge in the conference but also the great chance of meeting many new scientists and making many new friends among the participants. The most precious thing that I have gained by coming to this conference is La ilaha illa Allah, Muhammad Rasool Allah, and to have become a Muslim”.
Shaikh Zindani: The truth verily comes from Allah who said in the Quran: “And those to whom knowledge has come see that the (Revelation) sent down to thee from thy Lord – that is the truth, and that it guides to the path of the exalted (In Mighty), worthy of all praise.” (Quran, 34:6)
