A Giant Factory That
Is Not Seen With The Naked Eye:
As we mentioned in the initial pages of the
site, our bodies are composed of trillions of cells.
This number should not be overlooked. Indeed a trillion
is an exceptionally large number. Every adult human
body contains about 100 trillion cells. But thanks to
the fact that these cells are very small, our bodies
are not of gigantic size. The example we will give will
help you to better understand how small cells are. When
a million of our body cells are gathered together, they
occupy a place no bigger than a pinpoint. Despite its
smallness, however, a cell's structure has not yet been
fully understood. Scientists are still carrying out
their researches on the systems that a cell has.
The first cell that formed you was originated
in your mother's womb by the union of two cells, one
released by your mother's body and the other by your
father's. This cell kept dividing and became a piece
of flesh some time later. Then, as the cells that formed
this flesh continued to divide to form new cells, your
body was shaped bit by bit.
Cells that divide and multiply
as seen in the picture above then differentiate
into hundreds of different types of cells, a few
of which are shown below.
The cables seen above are made
by experts who specialize in this occupation,
that is to say that each of these cables is the
product of a design process.
Each new cell acquired a different shape.
Whereas some became blood cells, some became bone cells
and yet others became nerve cells. There are 200 types
of different cells in our bodies. In fact, all of these
cells are composed of identical components, yet each
performs different tasks. For example, the muscle cells
in your legs are like a rope woven so that you can walk
and run. Thanks to the structure they possess, your
arm and leg muscles do not tear due to excessive stretching
while you are playing with a ball. In shape, your blood
cells are globular, their task being to transport oxygen,
which is required by your body, by means of blood vessels.
Thanks to their shape, they can easily flow through
the blood vessels together with the oxygen they carry.
Skin cells, on the other hand, are clamped together
and closely arranged in a line. So your skin is impervious
to microbes and water.
Likewise, all other cells too have the
exactly ideal shapes that are suited to their tasks.
However, it is surely not by chance that these cells
acquired the shapes they possess. Consider computers,
cars or aeroplanes. There is someone who designed the
shapes and the necessary systems for the operation of
each of these devices. All details are considered and
planned by the technologists of the producer companies.
Cars are produced so as to ensure comfortable and safe
travel; television sets are produced so as to transmit
the best quality visual images and sounds to audiences.
This applies not only to technological devices, but
to all objects that we use. Tables, chairs, the building
you are living in, the pencil you use, the eating utensils
like the spoons or forks in your kitchen… each is the
result of a design. Each has been planned in detail
and nothing has come into existence by coincidence.
As you know, in order for a design and a product to
come into being, there needs to be a source of intelligence.
Now let's consider our body
cells. Our cells have much more advanced plans and functions
than a television or any other technological device.
Moreover, these structural units, which possess extraordinary
features, are living. As we have mentioned earlier,
scientists have not fully discovered the marvellous
system in these small units.
You are wondering, aren't you, how such
a design, which the human mind cannot even fully explore,
came into existence in this small space?
This reveals to us that our cells were
planned and created by a being with supreme intelligence.
The possessor of this intelligence is Allah, Who created
us perfectly down to the last detail.
