Embryology and the Quran- Part 2
In last week’s article, I discussed how the Quran revealed the nature and composition of the sperm and how the sex of the embryo is determined primarily by the male’s sperm. In today’s article I will enlist a verse that talks about other aspects of the nature and the development of the embryo.
From the Quran:
“And God created you inside your mother’s womb
In successive creation after creation
Within three layers of darkness
Such is your God
Unto Him belongs the sovereignty.
There is no God except Him
How then are you turned away?
In just a few words, the Quran talks about stages in the creation of the embryo and also about three dark areas within which the development of the embryo takes place.
The development takes place in three stages:
1- The pre-embryonic stage. In this phase, the zygote grows rapidly by division and multiplying until it forms a cluster that buries itself to the wall of the uterus.
2- The embryonic stage, which lasts about five and a half weeks. In this stage the basic organs and systems start developing.
3- The fetal stage, which develops until the time of birth.
As for the darknesses, they are:
1- The darkness of the abdomen.
2- The darkness of the womb.
3- The darkness of the placenta.
In the following, I will present to the reader some testimonials about the amazing revelations above by some leaders in the field.
Dr. Joe Leigh Simpson who has written more than 20 books on the subject of gynecology and occupied many distinctive positions, including the chair of the Department of Gynecology at Baylor College of Medicine wrote:
“It follows, I think, that not only there is no conflict between genetics and religion; but in fact, religion can guide science adding revelation to some of the traditional scientific approaches. There exist statements in the Quran that are shown to be valid centuries later, which support the idea that the knowledge in the Quran came from God.”
In a statement, Dr. Keith Moore, Professor Emeritus Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology, University of Toronto, writes:
“The intensive studies of the Quran and Hadith (the teachings of the prophet Muhammad) in the last four years have revealed a system of classifying human embryos that is amazing since it was recorded in the seventh century AD. The descriptions in the Quran cannot be based on scientific knowledge in the seventh century.”
