    [In France Islam has been spreading at a high velocity among people
    who have made fame in various areas. The number of people who have
    abandoned Christianity and chosen Islam have reached one hundred
    thousand already. This score has been confirmed by the Archbishop
    of Paris, the highest Catholic rank in France.

    It is noteworthy that people who have preferred Islam are not only
    from among workers and civil servants but also from among people
    renowned in every respect.

    Among people who have chosen Islam is Captain Cousteau, whom the
    whole world closely knows for his explorations about life under

    As the groundswell of embracing Islam was spreading among France's
    universal celebrities, Captain Cousteau, the world's most eminent
    undersea explorer, announced that by accepting Islam he had made
    the most correct decision of his life.

    Captain Cousteau, who has revealed the secrets of oceans one by
    one with the films that he made and which are being televised world
    over in a program sub-headed The Living Sea, said that what actually
    prompted him to choose the Islamic religion was, after observing
    that the waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean did not
    mix with each other, his seeing that the same phenomenon was written
    in the Qur'an al-Karim which had been revealed fourteen hundred years

    Captain Cousteau told of the event that had caused him to become a
    Muslim, as follows:

    "In 1962 German scientists said that the waters of the Red Sea
    and the Indian Ocean did not mix with each other in the Strait
    of Bab-ul-Mandab where the Aden Bay and the Red Sea join. So we
    began to examine whether the waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the
    Mediterranean mixed with each other. First we analyzed the water
    in the Mediterranean to find out its natural salinity and density,
    and the life it contained. We repeated the same procedure in the
    Atlantic Ocean. The two masses of water had been meeting each
    other in the Gibraltar for thousands of years. Accordingly, the
    two masses of water must have been mixing with each other and
    they must have been sharing identical, or, at least, similar
    properties in salinity and density. On the contrary, even at
    places where the two seas were closest to each other, each mass
    of water preserved its properties. In other words, at the point
    where the two seas met, a curtain of water prevented the waters
    belonging to the two seas from mixing. When I told Professor
    Maurice Bucaille about this phenomenon, he said that it was no
    surprise and that it was written clearly in Islam's Holy Book,
    the Qur'an al-Karim. Indeed, this fact was defined in a plain
    language in the Qur'an al-Karim. When I knew this, I believed in
    the fact that the Qur'an al-Karim was the 'Word of Allah'. I chose
    Islam, the true religion. The spiritual potency inherent in the
    Islamic religion gave me the strength to endure the pain I had
    been suffering for the loss of my son."
