A journey of faith throughCreation of Human Abduldaem Al-Kaheel www.kaheel7.com Translated by :Ahmed Adham firstname.lastname@example.org
(Say: "Travel in the land and see how (Allah) originated the creation, and then Allah will bring forth the creation of the Hereafter (i.e. resurrection after death). Verily, Allah is Able to do all things.”(] Sûrat Al-‘Ankabût -Verse 20 ]
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful All the praises and thanks be to Allah, the Lord of the Âlamîn (mankind, jinn and all that exists) and peace be upon our prophet (Muhammad) and his family and companionsDear my lovers! This research is not just for reading orknowledge , but it is a kind of worship to Allah , and arespond to the divine order :(So let man see from what he iscreated) to realize the power of God by bringing us back afterdeath (Verily, (Allah) is Able to bring him back (to life)).Therefore, thinking in God’s creation is a great worship andit’s not less important than prayer , fasting and almsgiving .That thinking refines our soul and makes us modest in front ofthe grandeur of the creator and also increase our belief inGod be He blessed and exalted .
So let man see from what he is created… During this journey of faith, we will look at the stages of human’s creation by using the taken photos by scientists in the twenty one century and to look attentively at these stages as God told us about it in the Qur’an fourteen century ago.
Dust is The first stage in creationScientists confirm that our body contains thesame elements as the existed in dust . Exactly asQur’an told us , God says: (And among His Signsis this, that He created you (Adam) from dust, andthen behold you are human beings scattered). (-Rûm – verse 20Sûrat Ar)
WaterGod created everything from water.Scientists found that percentage of water inthe bodies of the living organisms is more:than 70%, God says(And We have made from water every living thing )Sûrat Al-Anbiyâ-’Verse 30)(Allah has created every moving (living) creature fromwater ) (Sûrat An-Nûr- verse45)
…O Man ..…know your originSpermatozoonHuman should be modest , also should get rid of his arrogancewhen he realize that his origin is from the clay followed by unseensperm . God says: (O man! What has made you careless aboutyour Lord, the Most Generous? * Who created you, fashioned youperfectly, and gave you due proportion * In whatever form Hewilled, He put you together) Sûrat Al-Infitâr- verse 6:8).
After 9 monthsA fertilized cell which is seen 100000000000000 only by a microscope One hundred trillion cellOne of the most strange phenomena is the creation ofhuman !one cell grows to be 100 trillion cell , How doesthis operation happen? who controls this preciseprogram, Is it nature or the creator of nature?
The program of life who made it?The most strange thing is that the mother cell starts to splitbut it doesn’t produce same cells, but different cells ,some ofit for skin, bone , brain eye and heart , etc……who tells thesecells to do such job ? God says:(He has created everything, and has measured it exactlyaccording to its due measurements ) (Sûrat Al-Furqân -verse2).
God says in surat Al-Mu’minûn (verse 12-14): (And indeed We created man (Adam) out of an extract of clay1 (water and Dust) * Thereafter We made him (the offspring of Adam) as a Nutfah 2 (mixed drops of the male and female sexual discharge )and lodged it in a safe lodging (womb of the woman) * Then We made the Nutfah into a clot 3 (a piece of thick coagulated blood), then We made the clot into a little lump of flesh 4 , then We made out of that little lump of flesh bones 5 , then We clothed the bones with flesh 6 , and then We brought it forth as another creation7 . So Blessed is Allah, the Best of creators).Let us look attentively at these seven stages through the following photos
And indeed We Thereafter We made created man him as a Nutfah and Then We made the (Adam) out of an lodged it in a safe extract ofclay lodging Nutfah into a clot1 2 3Then We made the Then We made And then We out of that little Then We clothed brought it forth as clot into alittle lump of flesh the bones withflesh .another creation lump of flesh bones4 5 6 7 So Blessed is Allah, the Best of creators
ClayGod had created human from water and dust , thereforewe find that water is about 2/3 of our body, so mixingwater with dust produce clay , which is our origin, Godsays :(And indeed We created man (Adam) out of anextract of clay (water and Dust) ) ( Surat Al-Mu’minûn - verse 12 )
Scientists discovered that the human body consists of some elements whichare the same elements as in dust . One ofthe latest discoveries is that some kindsof clay contain antibiotics which are able to kill the most obstinate kind of germs. Hence they are thinking to use dust to sterilize hospitals!!So that God gave human a big honor when Hebe blessed and exalted created him from dust.
The Nutfah Which is The produced sperm by man SpermThe Nutfah is not seen by naked eye because of its smallness,but medical researches show that secret of life is more smallerthan that and it is in the deep of the Nutfah, in what is called thehereditary tape (DNA) which contains all necessary informationto create a Sane man. God says :(Thereafter We made him as aNutfah and lodged it in a safe lodging ) ( Surat Al-Mu’minûn - verse 13 )the safe lodging is the uterus, scientists say that the uterusbecomes greater a thousand times after pregnancy!!!
Sperms are competing to Ovum reach the ovum as they are trying to penetrate it , the question is who taught these sperms to run in that darkness to reach its target? And who drives it toward the ovum? God says: (Is then He Who creates like one that creates not? Will ye not receive admonition?) (Sûrat An-Nahl - Verse17)Sperm
Large number of sperms are surrounding the ovum but only one sperm can penetrate it to form the mixed Nutfah ( mixing of sperm and ovum). If we examine the chemical composition of sperm or ovum we will find that most of it consists of water , God says: (So let man see from what he is created * he is created from a water Ovum which isovulated by the woman every month gushing forth ) (Sûrat At-Târiq - Verse 5-6)
Length of the sperm is less than one part of one hundred part of millimeterEach time the man ejaculate300 million sperm!Sperm is supported by a long tail to help it in the swimming toward the target,that tail will be separated from the sperm before penetrating the ovum.The head of the sperm contains all needed programs andinformation to produce the embryo , therefore it is responsible forthe determination of the sex of the fetus (male or female). Qur’anrefers to that as God Says: (And that He (Allah) creates the pairs,male and female * From Nutfah (drops of semen - male and femaledischarges) when it is emitted ) (Sûrat An-Najm – verse 45- 46)
Sperm Does not man see that) We have created him from Nutfah Yet behold he (stands forth) as an open (.opponent (Sûrat Yâ-Sîn – verse 77) OvumWhen the first sperm enters the ovum ,that ovum starts to secrete amatter to close its cover in front of all sperms . after mating , thefertilized cell starts to secrete hormone of HCC which is detected bythe pregnancy revealer , this hormone orders the entire body to stopthe menstrual period and also gives an indication for the womanthat she is pregnant.
The mingled spermZygote After 30 hours of entering the ovum by the sperm , the first split occurs and the cell starts to increase to form the mingled sperm , that is after almost four days. size of the new cell is less than the head of a pin as it is not seen . God be He blessed and exalted says: (Has there not been over Man a long period of time, when he was nothing - (not even) mentioned?* Verily We created Man from a drop of mingled sperm, in order to try him: So We gave him (the gifts), of Hearing and Sight( (Sûrat Al-Insân - verse 1-2)
He is Allah, the Creator, the Inventor of all things, theBestower of forms. To Him belong the Best Names. Allthat is in the heavens and the earth glorify Him. And He .is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise Who tells this cell to split and Multiply to form a human? A microscopic photo for a three days old embryo !!! It is a cell which was divided into 8 cells and it can be divided more and more to form 100 trillion cell.
Embryo while searching in the dark for a place to cling with it Proclaim! (or read!) in the name of thy Lord andThe place where the embryo Cherisher, Whois clinging to the uterus created- Created man, out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood The inner wall of the uterus
Clot The clot The inner wall of the uterusAfter the merger of the sperm with an ovum , splits start at once,and then the fertilized ovum goes toward the wall of the uterus tostick and cling to it. God says: ( It is He, Who has created you(Adam) from dust, then from a Nutfah [mixed semen drops ofmale and female sexual discharge] then from a clot (a piece ofcoagulated blood) ) (Sûrat Ghâfir- verse 67 )
The fertilized cell is transformed to be the clot , whichis a group of cells that stick on the Endometrium (the inner membrane of the uterus) during almost 6 – 12 days and it chooses the best place for that! Clot Scientists are confused: What drives this cluster of cells to attach to the uterus to get feeding from it?Endometrium
A little lump of fleshAfter that , the embryo is transformed to Something like achewed piece of meat , God says about that :(then from a littlelump of flesh - some formed and some unformed (as in the caseof miscarriage) - that We may make (it) clear to you (i.e. to showyou Our Power and Ability to do what We will). And We causewhom We will to remain in the wombs for an appointed term)(Sûrat Al-Hajj – verse5 )
Then from alittle lump of flesh -some formed and some unformed ?What happens at this stageNow, Length of the embryo is less than 4 mmAt this stage the important organs are created like nervous system, heart and brain ,as heart starts pulsing and also many systems like respiratorysystem , kidneys and Liver are rapidly grows up.
3 2 1An image for an embryo in the stage of (little lump of flesh) , itlooks like a chewed piece of meat, , at this stage it is hard tosee that little lump of flesh by naked eye, it needs microscopesbut Almighty God told us about this stage and He representedit as if we see it with our eyes !!!
7 Weeks-old embryo ,do you know what is the length of it? Itis less than 2 cm , bones formation start at this stage.
Bone formation Bones stage What baffle scientists is : what makes these cells to know that it must be transformed to bones at this time? Bones formation start At this stage , during the sixth week till the eighth . Bones formation andgrowing continue after birth. God be He blessedand exalted says: (then We made out of that little lump of flesh bones).
At this age, heart beganpulsing, and brain startsto transmitelectromagnetic wavesand the embryo start toget affected by mother’svoice. hence mothersshould always readQur’an because heartand brain of the embryoget affected by that.
Flesh Stage Now, Length of the embryo is less than 3 cm At this stage, Muscles begin to take shape andto cover bones. This stage lasts for a long timeand it overlaps with the previous stage which is Bones stage. God be He exalted says: (then We clothed the bones with flesh)
And also in your own selves. Will you not then see?7-8 Weeks old embryo and appears on it the beginning of the flesh stageas muscles start to cover the bones. At the beginning of the eighth weekmuscles start to move. Also skin starts to cover the entire body . God beHe exalted says: (Look at the bones, how We bring them together andclothe them with flesh ) (Sûrat Al-Baqarah- verse 259)
The covering process of the Mandible bone Weeks 12A photo of the Mandible bone in the head of an embryo
The other creation Length of that embryo is less than 4 cm At this stage , the embryo starts to take its final features , eyes andears start to appear also organs of the entire body , the heart start its electrical activity ,brain is very complicated and its weight is almost half the weight of the body . The remaining operations are just the growth of these organs . This stage lasts till the end of pregnancy , God says: (and then We brought it forth as another creation) (Sûrat Al-Mu’minûn – verse 14)
During the first eight weeks , Embryo develops and takes many different shapes . But after that the appearance of the embryo remain without any changes till birth .Therefore all cited stages by the Qur’an happens during the first eight weeks .The final stage starts from the eighth week till birth which is called by the Qur’anNow, Embryo is 8 weeks old and it “ another creation”:has 90%of the systems in our and then We brought it forth asbody. Number of cells in thatembryo is 1000 million cell , who another creation.created these cells?
So Blessed is Allah, the Best of creators….. Heart of the embryo strikes 54 million pulse during pregnancy!
And then We brought it forth as another creation. So Blessed is Allah, the Best of creators Ninth week: Fetus starts to Sucking fingers, moving his tongue and to feel with his mother’s body ,also genital organs for male and female became clear. Tenth week: begin of the creation of fingerprints and nails, also Fetus starts to yawn . Eleventh week:the genital organs start to emerge , also the duodenum start its activities The following weeks till birth: is the beginning of the fetus development and organs grow up rapidly. The fetus starts to feel, smile and cry and feels with mother. Also the fetus starts training for Breastfeeding by Sucking fingers and the continuous movement of mouse (opening & closing )to be ready for mother’s milk.
Many confusing questions by scientists: How can a single cell evolves to produce that sophisticated creature which is human? Who tell these cells about its mission? 4 Months old – FetusNow, Fetus can listen to Who coordinate its job all surrounding voices to produce that perfect outcome? Now, length of the Fetus is 12 cm and !weight 140 gram
The end of the sixth month is the Completion of creating the fetus, this is the minimum period for pregnancy . God says: (and the bearing of him, and the weaning of him is thirty months ) (Sûrat Al-Ahqâf - verse 15 ). As breastfeeding period is 24 months ,hence the minimum period of pregnancy is 30-24=6 months And this is a koranic miracle in determining the minimumSix months old Fetus period of pregnancy.
Look attentively at the size of the embryo when it is one month old as its length is less than 4 millimeter and look at length of the Fetus just before birthWho guides that embryo in his journey to life ?He is Almighty God who says: (Our Lord is He Whogave to each thing its form and nature, then guided itaright ) (surat Taha- verse 50).
After nine months , Fetus gets out to be a child with ears , eyesand brain which contains 1000000000000 cell . How does this child know the exact time togo out ???? Allah is the doer who says: (then brings you forth as aninfant ) (Sûrat Ghâfir- verse 67).
Arab poetryO’ you son of Adam , your mother begets you when you are crying at the time when all people around you were happy and smilingDo a work that will makes you happy when you die and all of the people around you are sad and crying
Here are some supplications by some prophetsO my Lord! Grant me from You, a good offspring. You are indeedthe All-Hearer of invocation. O My Lord! Leave me not single (childless), though You are the Best of the inheritors. My Lord! truly, I am in need of whatever good that You bestow on me! Our Lord! Bestow on us from our wives and our offspring the comfort of our eyes, and make us leaders of the pious.
Placenta Placenta feeds the Fetus with food , drink and air . it doesn’t allow harmful materials to pass , Also it produce hormones which organize the temperature of the Fetus . Scientists say that placenta cares for the Fetus better than any other intensive care room Glory to God !!Dear brother and sister!! One day , you were stick In thewomb of your mother where food and livelihood werecoming to you without any effort . Shouldn’t you Prostratefor that great God and thanks him for that? Also if youasked him , is he unable to answer you????
!!A smiling Fetus Fetus starts laughing when he is inside the womb of his mother and he starts to cry from the first moment of being in the world. God told us about the sequence of these two operations ,God says:(And that it is He (Allah) Who makes (whom He wills) laugh, and makes (whom He wills) weep ) (Sûrat An-Najm - verse43)
(Or do they assign to Allah partners who created the like of Hiscreation, so that the creation (which they made and His creation)seemed alike to them?" Say: "Allah is the Creator of all things; and Heis the One, the Irresistible.) (Sûrat Ar-Ra‘d – verse 16)Cat embryo Human embryo There is a big similarity between the embryo of many living organisms , which testify that there is only one creator
Also there is a similarity between The beginning of galaxies and the embryo at early stages which testify that there is only one creator (be He exalted andblessed), God says: (Allah is the creator of every thing) , Glory to God !!! Image for an embryo in its Image for a far galaxy in its early stages early stages
There is an amazing similarity between thebrain weave for anembryo and thecosmic web for a galaxy !! It is really hard for ahuman to distinguish between both of them . It is an indication !!that the creator of universe is the creator of humanBrain weave Cosmic web
These facts Testify on the oneness of the Almighty CreatorFinally, we have to ask a question for those who claims thatthe Qur’an is a book of myths: from where in the seventhcentury did the illiterate prophet Mohamed (Peace be up onhim ) get these specific details about embryo creation? Also,how could he describes each stage with the best scientificmeaning? While scientists in the seventeen century wereconfused about the creation of human as they believed thatinside the Nutfah there is a complete human and they nevertried to talk about stages of creation as Qur’an did. It is aConcrete evidence that message of Islam is sincere !
He is the Originator of the heavens and the earth.How can He has children when He has no wife? Hecreated all things and He is the All-Knower ofeverything*Such is Allah, your Lord! Lâ ilâha illaHuwa (none has the right to be worshipped butHe), the Creator of all things. So worship Him(Alone), and He is the Wakîl (Trustee, Disposer ofaffairs, Guardian) over all things.* No vision cangrasp Him, but He grasps all vision. He is Al-Latîf(the Most Subtle and Courteous), Well-Acquaintedwith all things. (Sûrat Al-An’âm- verse 101- 103)
