In the name of Allah, the most gracious and the most merciful, “Read! In the name of your Lord who has created (you). [Surah Al-Alaq; 96:1]. This ayah shows the necessity and the inevitability of exploring and acquiring knowledge for all Muslims. The first instruction from Allah SWT to the ummah of the Prophet Muhammad pbuh is to seek and to explore knowledge, before the sending down any other instructions. Ever since the dawn of human life on this planet, Man has always sought to understand Nature, his own place in the scheme of Creation and the purpose of Life itself. In this quest for Truth, spanning many centuries and diverse civilizations, organized religion has shaped human life and determined to a large extent, the course of history. While some religions have been based on books, claimed by their adherents to be divinely inspired, others have relied solely on human experience. Al-Quran, the main source of the Islamic faith, is a book believed by Muslims, to be of completely Divine origin. Muslims also believe that it contains guidance for all mankind. Since the message of the Quran is believed to be for all times, it should be relevant to every age. One of the message from Al-Quran will be explain in this booklet which is ‘The Creation Of Man’.

And certainly did We create man from an extract of clay.
Then We placed him as a sperm-drop in a firm lodging.

The above surah, explain to us about the process of human’s creation. It has 7 stages which are : 1. Nutfah.
A system of classifying human embryos was in the 7th century A.D. Although Eric Statle, the founder of the science of embryology, realized that chick embryos developed in stages from his study of hen’s eggs in the 4th century B.C, he did not give any details about stages. As far as it is known from the history of embryology, little was known about the staging and classification of human embryos until 20th century. (Hamm & Leeuwenhoek were the first scientist to observe human sperm cell in 1677 which is more than 1000 years after The Prophet Muhammad SAW have possibly known all this thousand years ago when scientists have only recently dicovered this using advanced technology which did not exist at that time). The Holy Qur’an described the stages of man’s embryonic development and expressed that in very careful and meaningful terms before anatomist were able to identify these stages including all of the sophisticated of growing. Numbers of world’s scientist in the fields of embryology admitted these facts. For instance, Prof. Keith L. Moore collected these facts in his book ‘The Developing Human’ which is a scientific reference and has been translated into 8 language. The professor says : “It’s clear to me that these statements...
