On Scientific Miracles in the Qur'an
The word tara'ib in the ancient exegesis of Ibn Kathir has seven meanings. Suggesting that modern medical science can better explain its meaning is problematic because more than one "scientific explanation" can be derived from the same verse. Unfortunately, some writers get carried away in their enthusiasm and may mention things that may even be somewhat remote from the verse's meaning, providing fodder for anti-Qur'an and anti-Islam opinions. Therefore some restraint is warranted when undertaking such endeavor.
