If oriental movement may consider as symbol of antagonism against the endeavors of Islam, their activities were originated with the advent of Islam. The westerns had been expressing malice and hostility from time to time specially against the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and generally against Islam. Therefore, the bull and cock stories of orientalists kept on transferring descending from father to son. But, it was the fresh tree of Islam in front of orientalists which roots were spreading far and wide. Its stem was so strong and fruitful.
Orientalists began to stroke on its roots, but despite of continuously stroking on it. They saw it much stronger. They began to detect these resources through which this pure tree was continuously taking food. They found its reality that the peak of the fort of Islam had been erected on the strongest pillars likewise the Holy Quran, Hadith and Seerat-e-Mustafa (PBUH). They strained every nerve to demolish its pillars, but vain. They regretted on their failure.
I shall briefly describe only one pillar with the reference to above; i.e., the Holy Quran with counter reference to the efforts about enmity of Islam raised by the orientalists.
Key word: Orientalists.

This article compares the scientific concept of life with the Islamic concept and reflects the importance of life for human beings.
