Crows

You may like to read the article in The Daily Telegraph of London: Crows may be smarter than apes.

The Holy Quran says:

“Then Allah sent a crow scratching the ground to show him how to cover the dead body of his brother. He said: Woe is me! Am I not able to be as this crow and cover the dead body of my brother? So he became of those who regret.” (5:31).

Maulana Abdul Haq Vidyarthi of our Jamaat was very interested in relating statements of the Quran about the natural world to scientific research and external knowledge (e.g. behaviour of the bee, the spider, the ant, what trees do, etc.), and wrote much about how God’s creation is superior to man’s and what moral lessons man can learn from each of these.

One Response to “Crows”

    From Zahid Aziz:

    Further to my post above of last year, here is another item about the intelligence of crows. 

    Here is a quote from it:

    “Corvids [i.e. the crow family] are remarkably intelligent, and in many ways rival the great apes in their physical intelligence and ability to solve problems.”
