"Islam is fundamentally in its very nature a natural religion.
Throughout the Qur'an God's signs (Ayats) are referred to as the
natural phenomenon, the law and order of the universe, the
exactitudes and consequences of the relations between natural
phenomenon in cause and effect. Over and over, the stars, sun,
moon, earthquakes, fruits of the earth and trees are mentioned as
the signs of Divine power, Divine law and Divine order. Even in the
Ayah of Nur, [the] Divine is referred to as the natural phenomenon
of light and even references are made to the fruit of the earth.
During the great period of Islam, Muslims did not forget these
principles of their religion." -Sir Sultan Mahomed Shah, Aga Khan III's 1952 letter to H.E. Dr. Zahid
Husain, President of Arabiyyah Jamiyyat, 'What have we forgotten in
Islam?' (Karachi, Pakistan)
