Professor Simpson studied the following two Hadiths, (sayings

of the Prophet of Islam).


“In every one of you, all components of your creation are collected

in your mother’s womb by forty days.”


“If forty days have passed over the embryo, Allah sends an angel to

it, who shapes it and creates its hearing, vision, skin, flesh, and


He studied these two sayings of the Prophet Muhammad, noting

that the first forty days constitute a clearly distinguishable stage

of embryogenesis. He was particularly impressed by the absolute

precision and accuracy of those sayings of the Prophet. He

concluded that this information could not have been obtained on

the basis of scientific knowledge that was available at the time of

the writer (in the 7


century). “It follows that not only is there no

conflict between genetics and Islam, but in fact Islam may guide

science by adding revelation to some of the traditional scientific

approaches…. there exists statements in the Qur’an shown

centuries later to be valid which support the fact that knowledge

in the Qur’an having been derived from God. (Allah).”

He went on to say that the point regarding the accuracy of the

sayings by the Prophet as noted by other speakers at the

conference leads all of the eminent Professors to one conclusion,

and that is that the Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) had got the

knowledge from God, and he was definitely a messenger of God.

There are many more ayaat in the Qur’an relating to the creation

of man in much detail. Please refer to the Qur’an.
