Heart and cardiovascular system in Islam

International Journal of Cardiology has published a paper entitled “The heart and cardiovascular system in the Qur’an and Hadeeth”. Reading the paper reminded me of an old story in which a Muslim villager asked the Mullah of village mosque to consult Hadeeth for locating his lost cow. I once, in a light mood, asked a village Maulavi if Hadeeth has any reference to torch (battery operated). He replied that it is there but in an indirect way. I did not pursue the point anymore. Well Muslims can find anything and everything in Qur’an and Hadeeth. Why to speak of heart and cardiology? That’s why they are Muslims. I, however, doubt that the said paper was published to belittle Muslims.
