One thing I wonder about is with all this amazing scientific knowledge, why has Islam remained in the dark ages? Why aren't Muslims contributing much of anything to humanity today? Jews, who are hated in the Quran and hadiths, are doing amazing things for mankind! Let's look at the Nobel Prize:

"The Global Islamic population is approximately 1,200,000,000 or roughly 20% of the world's population.

The Nobel Prize is an annual international award bestowed by Scandinavian committees in recognition of cultural and scientific advances. The Nobel Prize is regarded as the most prestigious award in its field.

Salam was buried in Bahishti Maqbara, a cemetery established by the Ahmadiyya Community at Rabwah, Punjab, Pakistan, next to his parents' graves. The epitaph on his tomb initially read "First Muslim Nobel Laureate". The word "Muslim" was later obscured on the orders of a local magistrate, leaving "First Nobel Laureate". Under Ordinance XX, Being an Ahmadiyya, he was considered a non-Muslim according to the definition provided in the II Amendment to the Constitution of Pakistan.
