Everyone in the world went into his mother's womb as
a simple sperm cell and there, under specially created
conditions, united with an egg. After this, he began
life as a single cell. You also went through this process
along with your mother, father, brothers and sisters,
friends and acquaintances and people you don't even
know. Not only those who are alive now, but everyone
from the first human being to members of the present
generation, have undergone the miraculous stages described
in this book.
they not reflected that God created the
heavens and the earth and everything between
them for a worthy end and for a fixed term?
Yet many people deny that they will ever
meet their Lord.
(Qur'an, 30: 8)
During those months when the growing embryos had not
even the slightest awareness of their existence, God
gave form to their bodies and created each one as a
whole human being from one single cell. It is the duty
of everyone who lives on the face of the earth to consider
And it is your duty to think about how you came to
exist, and to be grateful to God Who created you.
Do not forget that the Lord Who created your body once
will create it once again when you die and will demand
This is very easy for God, the Owner of eternal power.
However, those who forget their creation and deny God
and the Day of Judgement are heedless in the extreme.
In the Qur'an, God refers to them in this way:
Does not man see that We created him
from a drop, yet there he is, an open antagonist! He
makes likenesses of Us and forgets his own creation,
saying, "Who will give life to bones when they are decayed?"
Say "He Who made them in the first place will bring
them back to life. He has total knowledge of each created
thing." (Qur'an, 36: 77-79)
