Al-Harith bin Kaladah

Writing under the pen name of Lactantius, a Christian author alleges that the descriptions of human embryonic development as mentioned in the Qurโ€™an had been plagiarised from the writings of ancient Greek physicians.

Such writings are said to have been transmitted to the Prophet Muhammad through his companionย al-Harithย binย Kaladah, who is said to have studied medicine at an old and noted medical school inย Jundishapurย (southern Persia) where instruction in all of the Greek disciplines could be obtained.

This essay investigates the accusation that al-Harithย binย Kaladah was the source of the Prophetโ€™s medical knowledge.
