Astounding Truth & Miracles From The Quran - Embryology

Consider this verse in the Quran:

"Proclaim! (or Read) in the name of thy Lord and Cherisher, who created. Created man, out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood." ( Al-Quran 96: 1-2)

The word Alaq besides meaning a congealed clot of blood also mean something that clings, a leech like substance. Dr. Keith Moore (professor of Embryology and Chairman of the department of Anatomy at the University of Toronto)who was asked to give his opinion had no knowledge whether an embryo in the initial stages appears like a leech. to check this out, he studied under a very powerful microscope in his laboratory and compared what he observed with a diagram of a leech and he was astonished at the striking resemblance between the two. In the same manner, he acquired more information on embryology that was hitherto not known to him, from the Quran. he has answered about 80 questions dealing with embriological data mentioned in the Quran & Hadith. Noting that the information contained in the Quran and Hadith was in full agreement with the latest discoveries in the field of embryology. Prof. Moore said, "If I was asked these questions thirty years ago, I would not have been able to answer half of them for lack of scientific information". In 1981, during the seventh Medical Conference in Dammam, Saudi Arabia, he said, "It has been a great pleasure for me to help clarify statements in the Quran about human development. It is clear to me that these statements must have come to Muhammad from God or Allah, because almost all of these knowledge was not discovered until many centuries later. This proves to me that Muhammad must have been a messenger of God."


"Now let man but think from what he is created! He is created from a drop emitted - Proceeding from between the back bone and the ribs." (Al-Quran 86:5-7)

In embryonic stages, the reproductive organs of the male and female, i.e the testicles and the ovaries, begin their development near the kidney between the spinal column and the eleventh and the twelfth ribs. Later they descent; the female gonads (testicles) continue their descent of the reproductive organ, these organs receive their nerve supply and blood supply from Abdomal Aorta, which is in the ares between the backbone (spinal column) and the ribs. Even the lymphatic drainage and the venous return goes to the same area.

  • HUMAN BEING CREATED FROM NUTFAH (Minute Quantity of Liquid)
The glorious Quran mentions no less than eleven times that the human being is created from nutfah, which means a minute quantity of liquid or a trickle of liquid which remains after emptying a cup. This is mentioned in several verses of the Quran including 22:5 and 23:13.
Science has confirmed in recent times that only one out of an average of three million sperms is required for fertilising the ovum. This means that only a 1/three millionth part or 0.00003% of the quantity of sperms that are emitted is required for the fertilization.

  • HUMAN BEING CREATED FROM SULALAH (quintessence of liquid)

"And made his progeny from a quintessence of the nature of a fluid despised." (Al-Quran 32:8)

The Arabic word sulalah means quintessence or the best part of a whole. We have come to know that only one single spermatozoon that penetrates the ovum is required for the fertilization, out of the several millions produced by man. That one spermatozoon out of several millions, is referred to the Quran as sulalah. Sulalah also means gentle extraction from a fluid. The fluid refers to both male and female germinal fluids containing gametes. Both ovum and sperm are gently extracted from their environments in the process of fertilization.

Consider the following Quranic verses:

"Verily We created Man from a drop of mingled sperm." (Al-Quran 76:2)

According to some commentators of the Quran, mingled liquids refers to the male or female agents or liquids. After mixture of male and female gamete, the zygote still remains nutfah. Mingled liquids can also refer to spermatic fluid that is formed of various secretions that come from various glands. therefore nutfatin amsaaj i.e. a minute quantity of mingled fluids refers to the male and female gametes (germinal fluids or cells) and part of the surrounding fluids.

The sex of a foetus is determined by the nature of the sperm and not the ovum. The sex of the child, whether female or male, depends on whether the 23rd pair of chromosomes is XX or YY respectively.
Primarily sex determination occurs at fertilization and depends upon the type of sex chromosome in the sperm that fertilizes an ovum. If it is an X bearing sperm that fertilizes the ovum, the foetus is a female and if it is a Y bearing sperm then the foetus is a male.

"That He did created in pairs - male and female. From a seed when lodged (in its place)." (Al-Quran 53: 45-46)

The Arabic word nutfah means a minute quantity of liquid and tumna means ejaculated or planted. Therefore nutfah specially refers to sperm because it is ejaculated.
The Quran also says:

"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. And of him He made two sexes, male and female." (Al-Quran 75: 37-39)

Here again it is mentioned that a small quantity (drop) of sperm (indicated by the word nutfatan min maniyyin) which comes from the man is responsible for the sex of the foetus.
Mothers-in-law in many part of the world, by and large prefer having male grandchildren and often blame their daughters-in-law if the child is not of the desired sex. If only they knew that the determining factor is the nature of the male sperm and not the female ovum! If they were to blame anybody, they should blame their sons and not their daughter-in-law since both the Quran and Science hold that it is the male fluid that is responsible for the sex of the child!

"He makes you, In the wombs of your mothers, in stages, one after another, in three veils of darkness." (Al-Quran 39:6)
According to Prof Keith Moore these 3 veils of darkness in the Quran refer to:
  1. anterior abdominal wall of the mother
  2. the uterine wall
  3. the amnio-chorionic membrane

"It was We Who Created man, and We know what dark suggestions his soul makes to him: for We are nearer to him than (his) jugular vein. (The Noble Quran, 50:16)"
