First Revelation From GOD <ul><li> Proclaim! (or read!) in the name of thy Lord and Cherisher, Who created- </li></ul><ul><li> Created man, out of a leech-like clot: </li></ul><ul><li> Proclaim! And thy Lord is Most Bountiful,- </li></ul><ul><li> He Who taught (the use of) the Pen,- </li></ul><ul><li> Taught man that which he knew not. </li></ul>
History Of Embryology <ul><li>Aristotle (384-322 BC) – Founder of Embryology – “Embryo rose from menstrual blood after activation by sperm.” </li></ul><ul><li>W. Harvey (1578-1657 AD) – Could not observe early stages of embryo and concluded “Embryos were secreted by uterus.” </li></ul><ul><li>Microscope discovered in late 16 th century could magnify only 10 times </li></ul>
History Of Embryology <ul><li>Hamm and Leeuwenhoek used an improved microscope in 1677 and first observed the spermatozoa, but mistakenly thought sperm contained a miniature preformed human being that enlarged when it was deposited in the female genital tract. </li></ul><ul><li>Caspar Wolff (1759) suggested that development results from growth and differentiation. </li></ul><ul><li>Von Baer – described oocyte in the ovarian follicle of a dog in 1827 – 150 years after discovery of sperm – general characteristics of embryo precede specific ones – “Father of Embryology”. </li></ul>
History Of Embryology <ul><li>Copy of a seventeenth century drawing of a sperm by Hartsoeker. The miniature human being within it was thought to enlarge after the sperm entered an ovum. Other embryologist at this time thought the oocyte contained a miniature human being that enlarged when it was stimulated by a sperm. </li></ul>
Al-Muminun <ul><li> Man We did create from a quintessence (of clay); </li></ul><ul><li> Then We placed him as (a drop of) sperm in a place of rest, firmly fixed; </li></ul><ul><li> Then We made the sperm into a clot of congealed blood; then of that clot We made a (foetus) lump; then We made out of that lump bones and clothed the bones with flesh; then We developed out of it another creature. So blessed be Allah, the Best to create! </li></ul><ul><li> After that, at length ye will die. </li></ul><ul><li> Again, on the Day of Judgment, will ye be raised up. </li></ul>
Al-Hajj <ul><li> O mankind! if ye have a doubt about the Resurrection, (consider) that We created you out of dust, then out of sperm, then out of a leech-like clot, then out of a morsel of flesh, partly formed and partly unformed, in order that We may manifest (Our Power) to you; and We cause whom We will to rest in the wombs for an appointed term, then do We bring you out as babes, then (foster you) that ye may reach your age of full strength; and some of you are called to die, and some are sent back to the feeblest old age, so that they know nothing after having known (much). And (further), thou seest the earth barren and lifeless, but when We pour down rain on it, it is stirred (to life), it swells, and it puts forth every kind of beautiful growth in pairs. </li></ul>
Al-Mulk  He Who created the seven heavens one above another: no want of proportion wilt thou see in the Creation of (Allah) Most Gracious. So turn thy vision again: seest thou any flaw?  Again turn thy vision a second time: (thy) vision will come back to thee dull and discomfited, in a state worn out.
As-Sajda  He Who has made everything which He has created Most Good: He began the creation of man with (nothing more than) clay,  And made his progeny from a quintessence of the nature of a fluid despised:  But He fashioned him in due proportion, and breathed into him something of His spirit. And He gave you (the faculties of) hearing and sight and feeling (and understanding): little thanks do ye give!
Al-Abasa  Woe to man! What hath made him reject Allah?  From what stuff hath He created him?  From a sperm-drop: He hath created him, and then mouldeth him in due proportions;  Then doth He make his path smooth for him;  Then He causeth him to die, and putteth him in his Grave;  Then, when it is His Will, He will raise him up (again).
Al-Qiyama  Does Man think that he will be left uncontrolled, (without purpose)?  Was he not a drop of sperm emitted (in lowly form)?  Then did he become a clinging clot; then did (Allah) make and fashion (him) in due proportion.
Az-Zumar <ul><li> He created you (all) from a single Person: then created, of like nature, his mate; and He sent down for you eight head of cattle in pairs: He makes you, in the wombs of your mothers, in stages, one after another, in three veils of darkness . Such is Allah, your Lord and Cherisher: to Him belongs (all) dominion. There is no god but He: then how are ye turned away (from your true Centre)? </li></ul>
Conclusion <ul><li>“It is clear to me that these statements must have come to Muhammad from God, because almost all of this knowledge was not discovered until many centuries later. This proves to me that Muhammad must have been a messenger of God.” </li></ul><ul><li>Keith L. Moore, Professor Emeritus, </li></ul><ul><li>University of Toronto </li></ul>Dr. Moore was a former President of the Canadian Association of Anatomists, and of the American Association of Clinical Anatomists. He was honored by the Canadian Association of Anatomists with the prestigious J.C.B. Grant Award and in 1994 he received the Honored Member Award of the American Association of Clinical Anatomists "for outstanding contributions to the field of clinical anatomy."
