Canadian Mathematician and former Christian Missionary who has converted to Islam
Dr. Gary Miller (also known as Abdul-Ahad Omar) is a Canadian Mathematician and former Christian Missionary who has converted to Islam. Using Critical Thinking based on clear proof, he shows how we can establish true faith by setting standards of truth. He illustrates a simple but effective method of finding out the right direction in our search for truth.
He was active in Christian missionary work at a particular point of his life but he soon began to discover many inconsistencies in the Bible. In 1978, he happened to read the Qur’an expecting that it, too, would contain a mixture of truth and falsehood.
He started reading the Qur’an more thoroughly hoping to find a mistake but he was shocked when he read Surah 4:82 that says:
“Do they not consider the Qur’an? Had it been from other than Allah, they would surely have found therein much discrepancy.” Surah 4:82
Dr Miller says about this verse: “One of the well known scientific principles is the principle of finding mistakes or looking for mistakes in a theory until it’s proved to be right; Falsification Test. What’s amazing is that the Qur’an asks Muslims and non-muslims to try to find mistakes in this book and it tells them that they will never find any”. He also says about this verse: “No writer in the world has the courage to write a book and say that it’s empty of mistakes, but the Qur’an, on the contrary, tells you that it has no mistakes and asks you to try to find one and you won’t find any.”
He discovered to his amazement that the message of the Qur’an was precisely the same as the essence of truth that he had distilled from the Bible. He became a Muslim and was active in giving public presentations on Islam including radio and television appearances.
He is the author of several articles and publications about Islam.
