Question 24 - Are there any scientific news about man creation and fetus life cycle in Quran?
Don’t forget Quran verses belong several years ago and science had many mistakes and negligence about fetus life in those days. Quran mentions three fundamental subjects about fetus life:
یَا أَیُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَاکُم مِّن ذَکَرٍ وَأُنثَى
1. People, we have created you from a male and a female, (AL-HUJRAAT13).
2. Quran categorized fetus life steps with elegance and accuracy which is coincident with modern scientist researches.
وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنسَانَ مِن سُلَالَةٍ مِّن طِینٍ ﴿12﴾ ثُمَّ جَعَلْنَاهُ نُطْفَةً فِی قَرَارٍ مَّکِینٍ ﴿13﴾ ثُمَّ خَلَقْنَا النُّطْفَةَ عَلَقَةً فَخَلَقْنَا الْعَلَقَةَ مُضْغَةً فَخَلَقْنَا الْمُضْغَةَ عِظَامًا فَکَسَوْنَا الْعِظَامَ لَحْمًا ثُمَّ أَنشَأْنَاهُ خَلْقًا آخَرَ فَتَبَارَکَ اللَّهُ أَحْسَنُ الْخَالِقِینَ ﴿14﴾
We created the human from an essence of clay: then we made him, a drop, in a secure receptacle (the womb). Then we created of the drop, a clot (of congealed blood) and we created the clot into bite size tissue, then we created the bite size tissue into bones, then we clothed bones with flesh, and then produced it another creation. Blessed is Allah, the best of creators! ( AL-MUMENOON12-14)
3. Quran introduces Divine soul as main criteria of man creation:
فَإِذَا سَوَّیْتُهُ وَنَفَخْتُ فِیهِ مِن رُّوحِی فَقَعُواْ لَهُ سَاجِدِینَ
When I have shaped him and ran my created soul in him fall down prostrating towards him'. (AL-HIJR 29) .In addition, Quran never prohibits mankind from searching about creation but orders him to do it:
فَلْیَنظُرِ الْإِنسَانُ مِمَّ خُلِقَ خُلِقَ مِن مَّاء دَافِقٍ یَخْرُجُ مِن بَیْنِ الصُّلْبِ وَالتَّرَائِبِ إِنَّهُ عَلَى رَجْعِهِ لَقَادِرٌ
Let the human reflect of what he is created. He was created from ejaculated water. That issues from between the loins and the ribs. Surely, he is able to bring him back,
There are more than 60 verses about creation in Quran that each of them reveals a secret from creation secrets. for more details you can refer to expressing general science in Quran written by Seyed Abolghasem Khoei , searching in scientific miracle in Quran written by Muhammad Ali Rezai Esfahani and miracle in Quran verses in man creation written by Muhammad Fayaz.
