5. O mankind! if ye have a doubt about the Resurrection, (consider) that 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, in order that We may manifest (our power) to you;

and We cause whom We will to rest in the wombs for an appointed term, then do We

bring you out as babes, then (foster you) that ye may reach your age of full strength; and

some of you are called to die, and some are sent back to the feeblest old age, so that they

know nothing after having known (much), and (further), thou seest the earth barren and

lifeless, but when We pour down rain on it, it is stirred (to life), it swells, and it puts forth

every kind of beautiful growth (in pairs).
