From the Paper:

"The Quran, as such, is a book of knowledge that stresses the need for education and gives it a place of special importance. In fact, it is possible to say that the Quran is an educational guide and not only a religious one. It refers to and discusses almost all educational and intellectual subjects, such as history, astronomy, science, medicine, biology. Furthermore, the style and language of the Quran, provided Arabs with an appreciation and understanding of poetry."
