God created man from the elements of the earth, different substances found in the earth. According to modern discoveries they are more than one hundred elements and science still searching for more. Those elements get to man through plants, animals, fruits, vegetables and food, they are the medium or the carrier of those elements to man after changing them to delicious food eaten by man. God made all those facts of man get out their charity which is extra things to the blood and the blood collects all this to the spinal cord in the backbone of man to form a very tiny man having all the features of man, his genes, his height, his picture and his color, but he is only seen by electronic microscopes, and so the blood takes these facts to the ribs of the woman to form the ovum that carries all her genes, God says about this:
“Now let man but think from what he is created. He is created from a drop emitted. Proceeding from between the backbone and the ribs.” Surat Attarek, Verses 5, 6, 7.
If Allah wills to create a man, of course He has the ability, He paved the way for the man to meet the woman, then he sends an emission containing millions of sperms into the semen, we can say about each one of them that he is a very tiny man, and in the other side an ovum comes into the uterus of the female. The sperms find their way and only one of them wins and penetrates (pollinates) the ovum, then they start to form man in his mother uterus in a very accurate stages, the Koran mentioned this and modern technology stood powerless in front of this accuracy. A great scientist in embryology in Canada, Kent Moore said when he listened to this description By a Muslim scientist at one scientific conference: This description of the Koran to the stages of embryo formation in mother’s uterus, modern technology can only confess that it is true without any doubt, it can’t even exchange a word of this description as it is so accurate as Allah says:
“Man We did create from a quintessence (of clay); 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 (fetus) 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.” Surat Al-Mo’menoon, Verses 12, 13, 14.
These stages last one hundred and twenty days, then the spirit is breathed in him and start formation of his apparent and hidden organs. When he is completely ready he is born, these are the stages, they need much time to detail them but whoever seeks details he can find that from references.
