Zaghloul El Naggar (Arabic: زغلول النجار‎‎, IPA: [zæɣˈluːl ennɑɡˈɡɑːɾˤ]) is an Egyptian geologist, Muslim scholar, and Muslim author. The main theme of El-Naggar's books has been science in Quran; his philosophy of science is blended with religion. He left his academic career to become the Chairman of Committee of Scientific Notions in the Qur'an, Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs, Cairo, Egypt.

Personal life

He received his bachelor's degree from the University of Cairo. He obtained his PhD in Geology from the University of Wales in the United Kingdom in 1963. El-Naggar is an elected Fellow of the Islamic Academy of Sciences (1988), a member of the Geological Society of London, the Geological Society of Egypt and the American Association of Petroleum Geologists, Tulsa, Oklahoma. He was imprisoned because of his political activism and beliefs during his student life. He was considered a grave threat to secular political establishment of Egypt. He was exiled from Egypt in early 1960s and could return to his country only in 1970.


El-Naggar wrote a book entitled The Geological Concept of Mountains in the Qur'an (2003, ISBN 9773630072). It was published by New Vision when El-Naggar was the chair of geology at King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. This book sold fairly well, leading El-Naggar to leave teaching and become the Chairman of Committee of Scientific Notions in the Qur'an.

El-Naggar published more than 150 scientific studies and articles, none of them peer reviewed, and 45 books in Arabic, English and French. Many of those publications deal with what are considered to be scientific miracles in Qur'an.
