This video contains rare footage of an Ahmadi Muslim being awarded the Nobel Prize in the year 1979 for his work in Physics. Dr. Abdus Salam is also the first ever Muslim to have achieved this honour. His achievement was a fulfillment of the prophecy of the Promised Messiah (as) that his followers will excel others in the fields of knowledge and wisdom. He indeed excelled all others by becoming the first ever Muslim nobel laureate with the grace and mercy of Allah Almighty.
The whole life of this great man is a role model for everyone. He always said that he got the inspiration of his scientific work from the teachings of Holy Quran. He was true believer in the existence of God and always said there is no contradiction in the word of God and the work of God.

“Seven hundred and fifty verses of the Holy Qur’an – (almost one eighth of the Book) – exhorts the believers to study Nature, to reflect, to make the best use of reason in their search for the ultimate and to make the acquiring of knowledge and scientific comprehension part of the community’s life.”
