the Glorious Qur’an and the hadiths of the Prophet Muhammed

(Pbuh). A few other verses pertaining to the creation of the

human being are: “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-Qur’an: 86:v 5-7.

In the 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

twelfth ribs.“ And made his progeny from a quintessence of the

nature of a fluid despised.”

Al-Qur’an: 32:v8


The Arabic word


means quintessence, or the best part of

a whole. Science has recently discovered that only one single

spermatozoon that penetrates the ovum is required for

fertilization, out of the several million produced by man. That

one spermatozoon out of the several millions is referred to in the

Qur’an as


“Verily We created man from a drop of mingled sperm.”


Quran: 76:v2


The Arabic word “nutfatin amshaajin” means mingled liquids of

the male and female secretions. “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 that We may

manifest (Our power) to you.” A

l-Qur’an: 22:v5


At the


stage, if an incision is made in the embryo and

the internal organ is dissected, it will be seen that most of them

are formed while the remaining are not yet completely formed.

“Man We did create from a quintessence; then We placed him as

(a drop of sperm) in a place of rest, firmly fixed; 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.”


Qur’an: 23:v12-14
