Al-Biruni and Ibn Sina did not have the advantage of using X-ray absorption spectroscopy to investigate the structure of water, but both of them were scientists whose worldview was informed by the Qur'an and both of them knew that there were signs in the water pouring down from the sky, giving life to earth after it had become lifeless, causing all manner of living creatures to multiply thereon (al-Baqarah:164).
