However, the very revelation of the Holy Qur'an sets precedence 14 centuries before modern science through its many miracles that now have been proved scientifically. Also, early Islamic history shows that Muslims like Ibn Sina, Al-Farabi, Omar Khayyam, Averroes, al-Ghazali, and Ibn Khaldum among many others, were pioneers of modern science.
