The Structure of Cartilage Noted In the Qur’an

 

 

By Harun Yahya

14 November 2014

Information about the stages of human development inside the mother’s womb is provided in the verses of the Qur’an. It is said in verses that the bones form first in the womb, muscles then appear and surround these bones:

“... then formed the drop into a clot and formed the clot into a lump and formed the lump into bones and clothed the bones in flesh; and then brought him into being as another creature. Blessed be Allah, the Best of Creators!” (Surat Al-Mu’minun, 14)

Until recently, the bones and muscles were thought to develop together inside the womb. However, advances in the science of embryology, which studies development inside the womb, have revealed that this is incorrect and the description in the Qur’an is absolutely correct. Microscopic examination also shows that development in the womb takes place exactly in line with the description in verses cartilage forms first in the embryo after which this cartilage tissue turns into bone. Subsequently, muscle cells are selected from the tissue around the bones and come together around them. As we have seen, the findings of modern embryology are in complete agreement with the stages of human development revealed in the Qur’an.

Cartilage is one of the proofs of Allah’s matchless creation. It is an especially created and vitally important structure. Every glorious detail in cartilage has a structure far too perfect to be capable of reproduction by human hands. By means of the presence of this flawless structure, people never need to reflect on how the functions of the spinal cord and joints will come into being or on how their airways must always be kept open in order for them to breathe. This perfect creation in cartilage reveals one very small part of our Almighty Lord’s sublime creative artistry. As Almighty Allah says in one verse:

“That is Allah, your Lord. There is no god but Him, the Creator of everything. So worship Him. He is responsible for everything.” (Surat Al-An’am, 102)

Examples of Allah’s sublime creation, such as cartilage, are all means whereby people can turn to Allah and appreciate His might and greatness, and give thanks to Allah, Who bestows their immaculate bodies, with all its many superior features, of which they may or may not be aware.

  • Dear Rational Sb: I know you are quite efficient and sufficient to solve the mystery of divine doctrines, its significance, comparative study with various branches of science. As you had asked me to do it that's why I had suggested to consult another one if needed.

  • Dear rational sb: I can't with authority owing to my little knowledge as I, myself a beginner. One day my wife was listening to a lecture of any Moulana, I heard this reference about Einstein and later on searched on internet. I have tried to understand the following way I am sharing again. For example, a conflict arises when a religious community insists on the absolute truthfulness of all statements recorded in the Bible. This means an intervention on the part of religion into the sphere of science; this is where the struggle of the Church against the doctrines of Galileo and Darwin belongs. On the other hand, representatives of science have often made an attempt to arrive at fundamental judgments with respect to values and ends on the basis of scientific method, and in this way have set themselves in opposition to religion. These conflicts have all sprung from fatal errors.”

  • Dear rehan nezami
    Which scholar should I consult? And why I myself can't understand? 
    Ghulam Ghaus saheb is a scholar, but he is silent. 
    Why you can't demystify? You are a believer and aalim too. If you can't demystify the mysteries of god who else will do?
    These mysteries and demystifying persons become gods or mediators between god and man.
    You must be at aware one baba is in jail and another is under investigation.
    If the message can't be understood by a common man it is not universal. Why there should be any mediator between God and man if the fate of man in hereafter depends on this message. Some clever persons become the prophets, saints and babas to establish religions. Without some goodies one can' t sell religion. So you see some good in all religions.

  • Dear rehan nezami
    You people often talk about proper context. May I request you to provide the context of this quotation made by Albert Einstein.
    Did he see god and religion through same lens which through you see. 
    I will quote other scientist of great repute.
    Muslims are fond of quoting non-muslim without caring of context.

  • Dear Mr. Rational and Hats Off Sb: Please consult an Islamic scholar for the questions regarding divine importance, religious mystery or God's secrets 
    By Raihan Nezami - 11/22/2014 4:41:21 AM



  • Dear Mr. Rational: It is not me, it is Albert Einstein who has given this statement, I am quoting a few lines here from the virtual world which may be helpful for you to understand this mystery. http://www.newrepublic.com/article/115821/einstein-quote-about-religion-and-science-was-wrong-misinterpreted

    Albert Einstein was the most famous scientist of our time, and, because he was so smart, his opinions on non-scientific issues were often seen as incontrovertible. One of the most famous is a pronouncement much quoted by religious people and those claiming comity between science and faith. It comes from Einstein’s essay “Science and religion,” published in 1954.

    “Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.”

    This quote is often used to show both Einstein’s religiosity and his belief in the compatibility—indeed, the mutual interdependence—of science and religion.  But the quote is rarely used in context, and when you see the context you’ll find that the quote should give no solace to the faithful. But first let me show you how, in that same essay, Einstein proposes what is essentially Stephen Jay Gould’s version of NOMA (Non-overlapping Magisteria). Gould’s idea (which was clearly not original) was that science and religion were harmonious because they had distinct but complementary tasks: science helps us understand the physical structure of the universe, while religion deals with human values, morals, and meanings.  Here’s Einstein’s version (my emphasis):

    t would not be difficult to come to an agreement as to what we understand by science. Science is the century-old endeavor to bring together by means of systematic thought the perceptible phenomena of this world into as thoroughgoing an association as possible. To put it boldly, it is the attempt at the posterior reconstruction of existence by the process of conceptualization. . .

    . . . Accordingly, a religious person is devout in the sense that he has no doubt of the significance and loftiness of those superpersonal objects and goals which neither require nor are capable of rational foundation. They exist with the same necessity and matter-of-factness as he himself. In this sense religion is the age-old endeavor of mankind to become clearly and completely conscious of these values and goals and constantly to strengthen and extend their effect. If one conceives of religion and science according to these definitions then a conflict between them appears impossible. For science can only ascertain what is, but not what should be, and outside of its domain value judgments of all kinds remain necessary. Religion, on the other hand, deals only with evaluations of human thought and action: it cannot justifiably speak of facts and relationships between facts. According to this interpretation the well-known conflicts between religion and science in the past must all be ascribed to a misapprehension of the situation which has been described.

    For example, a conflict arises when a religious community insists on the absolute truthfulness of all statements recorded in the Bible. This means an intervention on the part of religion into the sphere of science; this is where the struggle of the Church against the doctrines of Galileo and Darwin belongs. On the other hand, representatives of science have often made an attempt to arrive at fundamental judgments with respect to values and ends on the basis of scientific method, and in this way have set themselves in opposition to religion. These conflicts have all sprung from fatal errors.”

  • We should celebrate scientific advances as achievements of our  human race. Keep religion out of it.
    By Ghulam Mohiyuddin - 11/22/2014 1:43:42 AM



  • Dear rehan nezami
    If the disease is from.Allah to test his subjects then doctors committ the sins by trying to interfere in his matters. 
    Or Allah is sending diseases so that doctors can earn money and fame from the sufferings of people. Does it not look weird?

    By rational Mohammed yunus - 11/22/2014 1:36:05 AM



  • Dear rehan nezami
    Hats off has asked a valid question. Why the prophet couldn't detect posion in the meat. If it was his destiny jewess can't be responsible for his death.
    Religion has nothing to do with science. 
    Muslim scientists were not scientist of the Quran. They were free thinkers. 
    Muslims most of the time put science beneath the religion. Read the views of imam ghazali on science. Religious scholars like him pushed the Muslims back into beliefs in unseen. And Muslims till now have not recovered from this onslaught of orthodoxy on reason.
    Why Muslims were waiting for Luise pasture to discover the bacteria's.
    All medical systems don't rely on religion to cure people. Believers try to islamize, hinduise or Christianize the science.
    Does Allah plug all the inputs of people who ask the questions?

  • Dear rehan nezam
    You are unnecessarily draging science into religion. Religion demands blind belief scientific nice does not. Religion always has hindered the progress of science. 
    Quranic science  is not science at all. It is conjecture of its followers. You didn't tell the science behind the verses I quoted. The quotation quoted by you holds no water in reality. 
    Please come to these verses and explain that science is lame without religion.
    Do you remember ghhulam ghauss sahwb promised to write an articl. But the pages of NAI are still waiting for ground breaking Islamic science. Take the challenge and prove your quotation. I can quote on the other hand real scientists who are critical to religions.

  • Dear hats off. Bimari Aur Shafa Allah ki taraf se hai. You can't understand as your ears, eyes are shut down. So I remember a Persian phrase, 'Jawab-e-jahilan bashad khamoshi.
    By Raihan Nezami - 11/21/2014 10:18:15 PM



  • "Unless a disease erupts and evolves completely, science is unable to detect and diagnose."

    is religion able to detect and diagnose a disease that has not erupted and evolved?

    why was the prophet unable to recover from the poisoned meat given to him by a jewish woman?

    By hats off! - 11/21/2014 9:59:29 PM



  • Janab Rational sahab! Yes, that is my point. Unless a disease erupts and evolves completely, science is unable to detect and diagnose. That's why a scientist has told,'Science without religion is blind, and religion without science is lame'.
    By Raihan Nezami - 11/21/2014 8:47:06 PM



  • Dear rehan nezami
    The question is about absolute knowledge of god and scienset in the Quran. Earlier bacterias were invisible to man but now they are. Science is continuous learning progress. 
    You can find scientific miracles in below quoted verse but actually they are poor reflections on the scientific knowledge of god in the Quran.
    In some verse mankind is invited to ponder on nature but that is to invite to god. It has no scientific truth. The Quran is just a moral guide. But it insistance on belief in unseen makes it useful for bwlivera only. And not for all believers.
    Can you please tell what great scientific miracle the Quran is talking in these verses?
    If something doesn' t come under ultrasound today it doesn't mean it will never come. And all diseases are not caused by bacterias. Man has understood many and will continue to do so. 
    On the other hand god and believers are stagnated in the Aristotlirain or contemporary ideas of that time. God of religions is not aleem was khabeer.
