In the name of thy Lord and Cherisher, Who created — Created man, out of a mere clot of congealed blood. Keith Moore had no knowledge whether an embryo in the initial stages appears like a leech.
To check this out he studied the initial stage of the embryo under a very powerful microscope and compared what he observed with the diagram of a leech. He was astonished at the striking resemblance between the two! It is clear to me that these statements must have come to Muhammad from God or Allah, because almost all of this knowledge was not discovered until many centuries later. The book was the recipient of an award for the best medical book written by a single author. This book has been translated into several major languages of the world and is used as a textbook of embryology in the first year of medical studies.
It follows that not only is there no conflict between genetics and religion implying Islam but in fact religion Islam may guide science by adding revelation to some of the traditional scientific approaches. He is created from a drop emitted — Proceeding from between the back bone and the ribs. Zakir Abdul Karim Naik In embryonic stages, the reproductive organs of the male and female, i. Later they descend; the female gonads ovaries stop in the pelvis while the male gonads testicles continue their descent before birth to reach the scrotum through the inguinal canal.
Even in adulthood after the descent of the reproductive organs, these organs receive their nerve supply and blood supply from the Abdominal Aorta, which is in the area between the backbone spinal column and the ribs. The lymphatic drainage and the venous return also go to the same area. We have come to know now that only one single spermatozoon that penetrates the ovum is required for fertilization, out of the several million produced by man.
We have also come to know now that only one ovum is fertilized out of the tens of thousand produced by the female. That one ovum out of tens of thousand is also refered to in the Qur'an as Sulaalah.
This word 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. 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 amshaaj, i. The sex of the child, whether female or male, depends on whether the 23rd pair of chromosomes is XX or XY respectively. Primarily, sex determination occurs at fertilization and depends upon the type of sex chromosome in the sperm that fertilizes an ovum. Zakir Abdul Karim Naik Therefore nutfah specifically refers to sperm because it is ejaculated.
Mothers-in-law in the Indian subcontinent, usually prefer having male grandchildren and often blame their daughters-in-law if the child is not a boy. If only they knew that the determining factor is the nature of the male sperm and not the female ovum! Zakir Abdul Karim Naik then We made out of that lump bones and clothed the bones with flesh; then We developed out of it another creature.
The uterus is well protected from the posterior by the spinal column supported firmly by the back muscles. The embryo is further protected by the amniotic sac containing the amniotic fluid.
Thus the foetus has a well protected dwelling place. This small quantity of fluid is made into alaqah, meaning something which clings. It also means a leech-like substance. Both descriptions are scientifically acceptable as in the very early stages the foetus clings to the wall and also appears to resemble the leech in shape. It also behaves like a leech blood sucker and acquires its blood supply from the mother through the placenta.
The third meaning of the word alaqah is a blood clot. During this alaqah stage, which spans the third and fourth week of pregnancy, the blood clots within closed vessels. Zakir Abdul Karim Naik acquiring the appearance of a leech. Compare the readily available Qur'anic knowledge with Man's struggle with scientific findings: In , Hamm and Leeuwenhoek were the first scientists to observe human sperm cells spermatozoa through a microscope.
