I'll just mention a few miracles Allah has put in the Quran to make believers and non-believers aware of who you're suppose to worship and what you're
suppose to work for.
For example the Quran talks about how a woman gets pregnant in detail, is it possible that a man living in the arabic peninsula that could neither
write or read knew this?
The origins of life according to the Qur'an
There are at least 60 verses which deal explicitly with human reproduction and development, but these are scattered throughout the Qur'an and many of
the themes are repeated over and over again, as is common to much of the book. A useful place to begin would be the material out of which we are
created. One would expect the Qur'an to be unambiguous about such an elementary matter, but the verses listed show just how much uncertainty there
appears to be in our origins. Note that except where indicated the translation used is the translation of Yusuf Ali (Saudi Revised Edition).
Could it be from earth?
11:61 It is He Who hath produced you from the earth
Or dry clay (Arabic Salsaal)?
15:26,28,33 We created man from sounding clay
17:61 ... Thou didst create from clay
32:7 He began the creation of man from clay
Did we come from nothing?
19:67 We created him before out of nothing
No, we did not!
52:35 Were they created of nothing?
Did we come from mud?
23:12 We created man from a product of wet earth (loam) (Pickthall)
23:12 Man We did create from a quintessence (of clay)
38:71 I am about to create a mortal out of mire
25:54 It is He Who has created man from water (see also 21:30, 24:45)
Could it be dust?
3:59 He created (Jesus) out of dust
30:20 He created you from dust
35:11 Allah did create you from dust ....
Perhaps we arose from the dead or from one person?
30:19 It is He who brings out the living from the dead
39:6 He created you from a single Person (see also 4:1)
To resolve the considerable ambiguity about what exactly we are made of, it has been suggested that all of the above are complimentary accounts, in
the same way that a loaf of bread could be said to be made of dough, flour, carbohydrate or molecules. This evades the issue however. The metaphorical
description of God making man out of the dust of the earth is ancient and predates the Qur'an by thousands of years; it is found in the Bible in
Genesis 2:7. If this was literal it would be in direct scientific conflict with evolutionists who maintain that life was created out of the oceans,
but Muslims maintain that we were created both from the oceans and from earth.
The drop of fluid or semen
In a number of places we are informed that man is created from a drop of fluid (semen, seed or sperm):
16:4 He created man from a drop of fluid (Pickthall)
16:4 He has created man from a sperm-drop
32:8 He made his seed from a quintessence of despised fluid
35:11 ... then from a little fluid (Pickthall)
53:46 (he created) from a drop of seed when it is poured forth (Pickthall)
53:46 From a sperm-drop when lodged (in its place)
56:58 Have ye seen that which ye emit (Pickthall)
56:58 Do you then see? The (human Seed) that ye emit
75:37 Was he not a drop of fluid which gushed forth (Pickthall)
75:37 Was he not a drop of sperm emitted (in lowly form)?
76:2 We create man from a drop of thickened fluid (Pickthall)
76:2 We created Man from a drop of mingled sperm
77:20 Did We not create you from a worthless water (semen, etc.)? (Al-Hilali & Khan)
80:19 From a sperm-drop He hath created him
86:6-7 He is created from a drop emitted - proceeding from between the backbone and the ribs.
Could any of this have been known to sixth-century Muslims at the time of Muhammed? Surely that procreation involves the emission of a drop of fluid
has been well known from the earliest days of civilization. In Genesis 38:9 the Bible tells us that Onan "spilled his semen on the ground to keep from
producing offspring for his brother". The verses which describe the origin of life as a drop of emitted fluid are therefore no more than a direct
observation as to what is released during the act of sexual intercourse. We hardly need to rely upon divine inspiration to inform us of this fact.
In the verses listed above nutfah is used when describing the fluid which gushes out during sexual intercourse and clearly this can only refer to
semen. However, Prof. Moore is keen to translate nutfah in sura 76:2 as "mingled fluid"  and explains that this Arabic term refers to the male and
female fluids which contain the gametes (male sperm and female egg). While it is true that the ancient Greeks would not have been able to see
individual sperm or eggs, these only being visible through the microscope, the Qur'an emphatically does not mention sperm or eggs; it simply says
nutfah. This can reasonably be translated semen, or at a push, germinal fluid - which was a term used as early as Hippocrates  who spoke of male
and female reproductive fluids (but obviously could not have been aware of the cells contained in the fluids). If Moore wishes to translate nutfah as
germinal fluid, he inadvertently reinforces that the Qur'an is borrowing this term from the Greeks.
Sura 86:6 is interesting since it claims that during the act of sexual intercourse before which a man is created, the "gushing fluid" or semen issues
from between the loins and ribs. Semen is apparently coming out of the area around the kidneys and back, which is a real problem for we know that the
testicles are the sites of sperm production (although the ancient Greeks were not so convinced. Aristotle for example amusingly believed that they
functioned as weights to keep the seminal passages open during sexual intercourse ).
The explanation offered by Muslims  for the strange statement in this sura relates to the fact that the testicles originally develop from tissue in
the area of the kidneys, when the man from whom sperm is gushing forth was himself an embryo. In other words, in a very convoluted fashion the sperm
originates from the area between the loins and ribs because that is where the testicles which are producing the sperm originally form.
There is a rather less complicated explanation for this verse however. The Greek physician Hippocrates and his followers taught in the fifth century
BC that semen comes from all the fluid in the body, diffusing from the brain into the spinal marrow, before passing through the kidneys and via the
testicles into the penis . Clearly according to this view sperm originates from the region of the kidneys, and although there is obviously no
substance to this teaching today, it was well-known in Muhammed's day, and shows how the Qur'an could contain such an erroneous statement.
If you were to deny the fact that Muhammad was given this information by a Divine being, could you then explain how he knew it? Or are you of the
Even the scientists are saying that it's to obvious that a divine being must have brought forth the information, if they are the best educated in
science among you, why do you then deny?
