as salaam alaikum wa rahmtulaahi wa barakatu,

Water is mentioned over 100 times in the quran more than any other nutrient, this emphasis by Allah shows its importance.
the body is an electromechanical circuit and water is a conductor of electricity
the temperature and quality of water is important for consumption and we do the best we can in our circumstances.
According to classical Islamic scholar Ibn Qayyim Al Jawziyyah(ra), water is the chief of drinks.it nourishes and conveys the nourishment, it’s a win win with water. Al Jawziyyah said it’s ideal virtues can be detective from 10 things:-

1.     Colour should be clear

2.     No smell

3.     Taste should be soft and sweet.(Zam Zam water is ultimate soft sweet taste)

4.     Its weight should be light and thin

5.     Its course should be pure

6.     Its source should be distant

7.     It should be open to sun and wind to blanche it as it travels its course

8.     Its movement should run swiftly

9.     Its abundant quantity should be that to repel any super fluidities in it

10.                        Its direction should be from north to south or from west to east.

When one reflects on all these values, they can only be found in four rivers; the Nile, the Euphrates, the Sayhun and the Jayhun. The prophet Muhammad , (salah la alaihi wa salem)said, according to hadith reports of Abu Hurayra (ra) “all of them are rivers of paradise”.

Al jawziyyah(ra) also said water strengthens the stomach, quenches the thirst and arouses the appetite.

For most of us who do not live by a pure river, it is sufficient to drink room temperature water that is clean.it is worth remembering that some filtered water is devoid of all mineral content which is vital for good health and so mineral must be consumed from other suitable food sources.

I don't get it. The Nile flows south to north. What does superfluidity have to do with drinking water??

@kmjamal

Don't you think that any person living in a desert (just as your prophet did) will not see/underline the importance of water ?

This is so embarrassing. When can Muslims finally stop linking Quranic verses to science? It really makes Muslims look like they do lack intellect and reason. I'd like to converse with grown-up followers of Islam.

"Water is Life". It is said that Human body is made up of 70% water. The body needs 1-7 liters of water daily to function properly. You will be dehydrated without enough water,you will be thirsty, dry,and become weak. Your kidneys will be sick without sufficient water.Just try it yourself just a day without water and you will be able to give enough reasons why water is important. By the way, how would you have bath or a wash without water. Well, I could smell someone stinks over there without water!

Water is one of the most important substances on earth. All plants and animals must have water to survive. If there was no water there would be no life on earth.

I think one option you have to stop people from linking Quran to science will be to remove the faculty of thinking from them. Oh yes, you will have to remove it not only from Muslims, but from all humans, as Quran has been challenging thinking minds irrespective of their religious background (Dr. Maurice Bucaille and More)

Now don't trouble yourself too much if you are finding such a linking difficult to fathom--I am only talking about thinking minds

---------------------------------------------
The rumor is:
- Bucaille got 6 Million Dollars from the Saudis for his book.
- Apparently he is buried on a catholic cemetery

Fact is:

- Both, More & Bucaille have been in close contact with Saudi Arabian authorities (and their cash flow).
(Shamed be who thinks evil of it!)

- None of the two ever converted to Islam.

- When asked on this subject a couple of years ago, Mr. More didn't want to comment on his own embryology statements. He replied something like: "It is now more than 10 years that I was involved in Islam, I do not remember the details anymore".
This sounds very much like a man that got deeply impressed by the Quranic knowledge.

- Every person reading an intro to embryology can see that the related Quranic statements  reflect exactly the state of knowledge of an illiterate man who lived about 1400 years ago.
------------------------------------

Ah, and your weblink also mentions Alfred Kroner as a fervent defender of the Quran, may be you should have a look at this little interview with Kroner. It teaches us a lot on how carelessly information is spread on these websites.
