Creation of Human Being
The Quran confirms that man is the climax of creation. According to the Quran, man is a unique creation of Allah and his gifted qualities are unmatched by any other living being. The Quran also says that all the other living objects have originated from water and man from clay. Following verses of Holy Quran give details of how man was created.
Surah No.2 ,Al Baqr ,Ayats No.30 to 34
إِذْ قَالَ رَبُّكَ لِلْمَلاَئِكَةِ إِنِّي جَاعِلٌ فِي الأَرْضِ خَلِيفَةً قَالُواْ أَتَجْعَلُ فِيهَا
مَن يُفْسِدُ فِيهَا وَيَسْفِكُ الدِّمَاء وَنَحْنُ نُسَبِّحُ بِحَمْدِكَ وَنُقَدِّسُ لَكَ قَالَ
وَعَلَّمَ آدَمَ الأَسْمَاء كُلَّهَا ثُمَّ عَرَضَهُمْ o إِنِّي أَعْلَمُ مَا لاَ تَعْلَمُونَ
o عَلَى الْمَلاَئِكَةِ فَقَالَ أَنبِئُونِي بِأَسْمَاء هَـؤُلاء إِن كُنتُمْ صَادِقِينَ
o قَالُواْ سُبْحَانَكَ لاَ عِلْمَ لَنَا إِلاَّ مَا عَلَّمْتَنَا إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الْعَلِيمُ الْحَكِيمُ
يَا آدَمُ أَنبِئْهُم بِأَسْمَآئِهِمْ فَلَمَّا أَنبَأَهُمْ بِأَسْمَآئِهِمْ قَالَ أَلَمْ أَقُل لَّكُمْ
o إِنِّي أَعْلَمُ غَيْبَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَأَعْلَمُ مَا تُبْدُونَ وَمَا كُنتُمْ تَكْتُمُونَ
o وَإِذْ قُلْنَا لِلْمَلاَئِكَةِ اسْجُدُواْ لآدَمَ فَسَجَدُواْ إِلاَّ إِبْلِيسَ أَبَى وَاسْتَكْبَرَ وَكَانَ مِنَ الْكَافِرِينَ
When Your Lord said to the angels: "I will create a vicegerent (A deputy appointed by the ruler) on earth."
They said: "Will You place there one who will make mischief and shed blood?- while we do celebrate Your praises and glorify Your holy (name)?"
He said: "I know what you do not know."
And He taught Adam the names of all things; then He placed them before the angels, and said: "Tell me the names of these if you are right."
They said: "Glory to You, we have no knowledge except what you have given us. In reality it is You Who are perfect in knowledge and wisdom."
He said: "O Adam! Tell them their names." When he had told them, Allah said: "Did I not tell you that I know the secrets of heaven and earth, and I know what you disclose and what you hide?"
And when, We said to the angels: "Bow down to Adam" and they bowed down except Iblis: he refused and he became unbeliever.
Right from day one, superiority of Adam (The first Man) was established by Allah. This was mainly because of the knowledge of various things provided to him. The first lesson given to Adam, regarding the knowledge of names of various things, was in fact the start of the learning process. Please note that the same is still continuing, as man has taken knowledge to great heights. In the present era, the people are well aware about the human gains and the utilization of new technology by the man in different fields.
In the Holy Quran, Allah has given various indicators to guide man to think and act. The believers, in addition to their religious obligations, they took advantage of these indicators and their scientists had derived full benefits from it. Their contribution in various fields in commendable. Please note that the contribution of the following Muslim Scientists in different fields should always be the source of inspiration for the young generation. Following are the Muslim scientists and their contribution in various fields.
Jabir Ibn Haiyan is known as the father of chemistry died in 803 C.E. and his major contribution was in the field of chemistry includes perfection of scientific techniques such as crystalization, distillation, calcination, sublimation and evaporation.
Ibn Musa al-Khawarizmi was born at Khawarizm (Kheva) who died in 804 C.E. He was perhaps one of the greatest mathematicians. His work on algebra was outstanding, which had established him as the founder of Algebra. The name Algebra has been derived from his famous book Al-Jabr wa-al-Muqabilah. He explained the use of zero and also developed the decimal system.
Ibn Ishaq al-Kindi was born at Kufa around 800 C.E. and died in 873 C.E. He was a philosopher, mathematician, physicist, astronomer, physician, geographer and even an expert in music. He had contributed to spherical geometry to assist in astronomical studies.
Al-Battani al-Harrani was born around 858 C.E and died in 929 C.E. He was a famous astronomer, mathematician and astrologer. His well-known discovery is the accurate determination of the solar year as being 365 days, 5 hours, 46 minutes and 24 seconds, which is very close to the latest estimates.
Al-Abbas al-Zahrawi (known in the west as Abulcasis) was born in 936 C.E. and died in 1013 C.E. He was one of the most renowned surgeons of the Muslim era and was physician to King Al-Hakam-II of Spain. He wrote three books on surgery based on the operations performed by him, including cauterization, removal of stone from the bladder, dissection of animals, midwifery, stypics, and surgery of eye, ear and throat. He perfected several delicate operations, including removal of the dead foetus and amputation.
Ibn Ismail al-Buzjani was born in Buzjan, Nishapur in 940 C.E. and died in 997 C.E. In geometry his contribution comprises solution of geometrical problems with opening of the compass; construction of a square equivalent to other squares; regular polyhedra; construction of regular hectagon taking for its side half the side of the equilateral triangle inscribed in the same circle; constructions of parabola by points and geometrical solution of the equations :
x4 = a and x4 + ax3 = b
Abul Wafa's contribution to the development of trigonometry was extensive. He was the first to show the generality of the sine theorem relative to spherical triangles. He developed a new method of constructing sine tables, the value of sin 30' being correct to the eighth decimal place. He also developed relations for sine (a+b) and the formula:
2 sin2 (a/2) = 1 - cos a , and
sin a = 2 sin (a/2) cos (a/2)
Ibn Ahmad al-Biruni was one of the well-known figures associated with the court of King Mahmood Ghaznawi , Al-Biruni was a versatile scholar and scientist who was born in 973 C.E. and died in 1048 C.E. Al-Biruni, and Abu Nasr Mansur, who are thought to have first derived the Cosine rule (law in trignometry) and applied it to spherical geometry.
Omar Khayyam was born at Nishapur, the provincial capital of Khurasan around 1044 C.E. and died in 1123 C.E. Persian mathematician, astronomer, philosopher, physician and poet, he is commonly known as Omar Khayyam. He made an attempt to classify most algebraic equations, including the third degree equations and, in fact, offered solutions for a number of them. His book Maqalat fi al-Jabr wa al-Muqabila is a master- piece on algebra and has great importance in the development of algebra. Apart from being a scientist, Khayyam was also a well-known poet.
Abu Marwan Ibn Zuhr was born at Seville in 1091 C.E. and died in 1161 C.E. He was one of the greatest physicians and clinicians of the Muslim golden era. As a physician, he made several discoveries and breakthroughs. He described correctly, for the first time, scabies, the itch mite and may thus be regarded as the first parasitologist. He also gave clinical descriptions of mediastinal tumours, intestinal phthisis, inflammation of the middle ear, pericarditis, etc.
Ibn Idris al-Qurtubi al-Hasani, was bom in Ceuta, Spain, in 1099 C.E. and died in 1166 C.E. His major contribution lies in medicinal plants as presented in his several books, specially Kitab al-Jami-li-Sifat Ashtat al-Nabatat. He studied and reviewed all the literature on the subject of medicinal plants. Apart from botany and geography, Idrisi also wrote on fauna, zoology and therapeutical aspects.
Ahmad Zewail was born on February 26, 1946 in Damanhour (60km south-east of Alexandria). Zewail's key work has been as the pioneer of femtochemistry—i.e. the study of chemical reactions across femtoseconds. In 1999, Zewail became the third ethnic Egyptian to receive the Nobel Prize.

We have created you and gave you shape; then We asked the angels bow down to Adam, and they bowed down; not so Iblis; He refused to be of those who bow down.
(Allah) said: "What prevented you from bowing down when I commanded you?" He said: "I am better than he: You did create me from fire, and him from clay."
(Allah) said: "Get down from here: it is not for you to be arrogant here: get out, you are the meanest ."
He said: "Give me respite till the day they are raised up ."
(Allah) said: " Go, you are given respite."
He said: "Because you have thrown me out of the way, I will sit in wait against them on their straight path :
"Then I will assault them from the front and from behind, from their right and from their left: Then You will not find,most of them thankful to you (for Your mercies)."
(Allah) said: "Get out from here , disgraced and expelled. If any of them follow you- I will fill Hell with you all.
"O Adam! dwell you and your wife in the Garden, and enjoy (its good things) as you wish: but do not approach this tree, otherwise you will harm to yourselves ."
Then Shaitan began to whisper suggestions to them, bringing to uncover their shame that was hidden from them (before): he said: "why Your Lord only prevent you this tree from you, only because, you may become angels or become immortal."
And he swore to them, that he was their sincere adviser.
So by cunning he brought about their fall: when they tasted of the tree, their shame became open to them, and they began to cover their bodies with the leaves of the garden. And their Lord called to them: "Did I not forbid you that tree, and tell you that Shaitan was an avowed (declared) enemy to you?"
They said: "Our Lord! We have wronged our own souls: If You do not forgive us and do not grant Your Mercy upon us, we shall certainly be lost."
(Allah) said: " You get down. You shall be enemy to one another. Earth will be your residing-place and your means of livelihood,- for a short time."
He (Allah) said: "There you shall live, and there you shall die ; Then from it, you shall be raised again ."
CREATION V/S EVOLUTION OF MAN
Islam believes in the theory of creation while the Scientists believe in the theory of Evolution. The Muslim believe that the life on earth is created by Allah and it is not accidental or by chance. The Holy Quran agree that man is the climax of creation and is a unique creation of Allah and his gifted qualities are unmatched with any other living being. Islam says that Allah has created this universe and Humans with a specified goal. In Sura No.36 Al-Yasin in Ayat No. 82 the Quran announces: “Verily, when He intends a thing, His command is, “Be”; and it is”.
In Surah No.50 ,Qaaf , Ayat No.16 Allah says " It was We ,Who created man, and We know what his soul whispers. We are nearer to him than (his) jugular vein ".
Quran is very very clear about the creation of Man, which says : "It is We, Who created you from single person". It also points out to the beginning of man from an inorganic clay compound and successive generation from a despised fluid. Further in order to distinguish man from the other animals Allah breathed into him His spirit, capacity to write and speak. This is a Divine gift to Human being by the Almighty Allah.
There are many verses in the Quran dealing with the subject of creation.
Since Muslims have strong faith on Unseen and have a trust on the holy Book therefore they have no dispute on creation of the universe and the human being by Allah.
However, the materialists do not believe in creation and spirit and they regard the existance of universe as the product of blind material forces.Since some of the scientists had tried to prove that the man came into existence after passing through different stages that too in millions of years, it would therefore be interesting to examine the views of the scientists and the theory of Evolution.
Charles Robert Darwin FRS (12 February 1809 – 19 April 1882) was an English naturalist, who had described that all species of life have evolved from common ancestor, through the process, he called natural selection. Darwin's Theory of Evolution is a slow gradual process.One should know that evolution is a change in the genetic material of a population of organisms from one generation to the next. Though the changes produced in any one generation are small, then these genetic changes accumulate with each subsequent generation and over a time frame, cause substantial changes in the organisms. Because of this process new species emerge. The similarities between organisms indicates that all known species are descended from a common ancestor. In short Darwin's Theory of Evolution says that all life is related and has descended from a common ancestor: the birds and the bananas, the fishes and the flowers -- all related. He also introduced the concept of Natural Selection which he had derived from Malthus Essay's 'Principle of population'. Malthus advocated that population increases geometrically while food supply increases only at arithmetic rate. Consequently it leads to the death of poor through hunger, disease etc. This had led Darwin to evolve the concept of Natural selection and Survival of the Fittest. The theory of Natural Selection also advocated a mechanism which leads to the evolution of living beings.
His five-year voyage on HMS Beagle established him as an eminent geologist and the voyage made him famous as a popular author. On the basis of fossils, he collected on the voyage, Darwin investigated the transmutation of species and conceived his theory of natural selection in 1838. Darwinism bases on materialism. The French Zoologist Jean de Lamarck (1744 – 1829), in 1809 presented his pioneering theory of evolution. Charles Darwin, in his books “The Origin of Species” (1859) and “The Descent of Man” (1871), presented his theory of evolution. He presented the theory of the Mechanism of Natural Selection or survival of the fittest. Darwinism maintains that living things were not created but came into being by chance. Darwinism, materialism and communism believe in matter not in spirit. Darwin himself regarded his theory based on assumptions. Lamarck and Darwin believed in the transferring of traits of one species to the other. They maintain that living creatures passed on the traits they acquired during lifetime to the next generation.
The laws of inheritance discovered by Gregor Mendel (1822 – 1884) and verified by the science of genetics have nullified the theory of evolutionary mechanism. The theory clearly advocates that the characters of an organism are inherrited from their seniors.
Darwinism has been scientifically rejected and the defeat of Darwinism in the faces of science can be reviewed under the following basic topics:
1- The Darwinism theory cannot scientifically explain how life originated on Earth.
The evolutionists’ claim that the universe started from “first atom” and life started from “first cell”.
Who created the atom and cell ? The evolutionists cannot answer. Inanimate matter must have produced a living cell as a result of coincidence is the belief of the evolutionists. Modern biologists have rejected this claim. Life comes from life has been proved. The theory of “spontaneous generation”, which asserts that non-living materials came together to form living organism has been rejected. Jeffery Bada in his book “Earth” admits: “we still face the biggest unsolved problem that how did life originate on earth.” The conditions required for the formation of cell are too great in quantity to be explained away by coincidences. Molecular Biologists and Geneticists lead us to believe that every aspect of Phenotype (Physical appearance of an organism) is controlled by Genotype (Genetic constitution of an organism). In all the cells the genes control every metabolic activity. The biochemical basis of the gene is Deoxyribonucleic Acid,in short DNA, which is confined in the nucleus and convey its orders through messenger RNA (Ribonucleic Acid) to the site of proteinsynthesis. Hundreds of biochemical reaction are taking place simultaneously, in the cytoplasm promoted by hundreds of enzymes in the same cytoplasm, and the beauty of the system is that one metabolic reaction does not interfere with other, all under control of DNA. There is a perfect order maintained by DNA, which is just four amino acids chain, arranged in a special sequence. It is therefore very clear that the DNA molecule is so complex that its existance cannot be accidental or coincidental.
2- The fossil record provided proves the exact opposite of what the theory
The theory of Human Evolution states that the Homo Sapiens (Man) seems to have descended from Apes, i.e. Australopithecus discovered in South Africa in 1924 which lived between 5 million years back. The scientists have clearly attempted to develop a coherent (harmonious) story regarding the evolution of man. The entire theory is based upon the study of fossils found from time to time in different regions.The weakness of their theory is evident from the fact because of the fragmentary nature of evidences consisting of specimens of skulls and scattered bones. No where the scientists were able to find full size skeleton fossils of the body .Therefore, regarding the evolution of man, the scientific foundation is weak because it is based on incomplete and fragmentary evidences, wherein many links are missing.
The new fossil skull found in the central African country of Chad has dealt a heavy blow to the evolutionary claims regarding the origin of man. It has rocked the very foundations of the theory of evolution. The tale of "an evolutionary chain stretching from ape to man" has collapsed.This new fossil has shattered the claim that "man evolved from ape-like creatures" which was maintained by Darwinists for the last 150 years. Discovered by the French scientist Michel Brunet, the fossil was given the name Sahelanthropus chadensis. The new-found skull could sink our current ideas about human evolution.
Daniel Lieberman of Harvard University said that, "this discovery will have the impact of a small nuclear bomb."
The reason for this is that the fossil is 7 million years old and has a more "human-like" structure than the 5 million-year-old Australopithecus ape species that is alleged to be "mankind's oldest ancestor."
Fossils show, writes Harun Yahua, in his book, “The Importance of Conscience in the Quran”, that living beings emerged fully developed and in a perfect state on the earth. That means, that the Origin of Species, contrary to Darwin’s suppositions, is not evolution, but creation.”
Considering the unique qualities of man, his intellect and capacity to speak and write awarded by Allah, the theory of Natural Selection will be an insult to human qualities. It is quite clear that there is a deliberate attempt to eliminate the decree of Allah regarding direct creation of Adam. The Biologists claimed evolution of Man through a automotive process of Natural selection, but Allah created him as His Vicegerent. Please note that the Quran provides the truth and nothing but the truth .
Our holy book Quran which confirms that the humanity started with the direct creation of the man by Allah. The man was framed right from the day one and this is a strong belief of all the believers. One must take it for granted that One hundred thousand Darwin cannot deviate us from this belief.
Surah No.23 ,Al Muminoon , Ayats No.12 to 16
وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنسَانَ مِن سُلَالَةٍ مِّن طِينٍoثُمَّ جَعَلْنَاهُ نُطْفَةً فِي قَرَارٍ مَّكِينٍoثُمَّ خَلَقْنَا النُّطْفَةَ عَلَقَةً فَخَلَقْنَا الْعَلَقَةَ مُضْغَةً فَخَلَقْنَا الْمُضْغَةَ عِظَامًا فَكَسَوْنَا الْعِظَامَ لَحْمًا ثُمَّ أَنشَأْنَاهُ خَلْقًا آخَرَ فَتَبَارَكَ اللَّهُ أَحْسَنُ الْخَالِقِينَoثُمَّ إِنَّكُمْ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ لَمَيِّتُونَoثُمَّ إِنَّكُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ تُبْعَثُونَo
And We created man (Adam) out of an extract of clay (water and earth). Thereafter We placed him (the offspring of Adam) as a Sperm (Nutfah) in a safe place of rest (Uterus of the woman). Then We made the Sperm into a clot (coagulated blood), then We made the clot into a little lump of flesh, then We made out of that, the bones, then We clothed the bones with flesh, and then We brought it forth as another creation. So Blessed is Allâh, the Best of creators. After that, surely, you will die. Then surely, you will be raised up again on the Day of Resurrection.
Surah No.32 , As Sajdah , Ayats No. 7 to 11
ثُمَّ جَعَلَ o الَّذِي أَحْسَنَ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ خَلَقَهُ وَبَدَأَ خَلْقَ الْإِنسَانِ مِن طِينٍ
ثُمَّ سَوَّاهُ وَنَفَخَ فِيهِ مِن رُّوحِهِ وَجَعَلَ o نَسْلَهُ مِن سُلَالَةٍ مِّن مَّاء مَّهِينٍ
وَقَالُوا أَئِذَا ضَلَلْنَا فِي o لَكُمُ السَّمْعَ وَالْأَبْصَارَ وَالْأَفْئِدَةَ قَلِيلًا مَّا تَشْكُرُونَ
o الْأَرْضِ أَئِنَّا لَفِي خَلْقٍ جَدِيدٍ بَلْ هُم بِلِقَاء رَبِّهِمْ كَافِرُونَ
o قُلْ يَتَوَفَّاكُم مَّلَكُ الْمَوْتِ الَّذِي وُكِّلَ بِكُمْ ثُمَّ إِلَى رَبِّكُمْ تُرْجَعُونَ
He has made everything thing good which He created , and He began the creation of man from clay; Then He made his family from a fluid; Then He fashioned him and breathed into him His Spirit; and then He gave you hearing and sight and hearts. You give little thanks ! And they say: When we are lost in the earth, how can we be re-created ? Nay ! they deny the meeting with their Lord. Say: The angel of death, who is in charge of you, will take your souls : then you will be brought back to your Lord .
Surah No.50 ,Qaaf , Ayats No.16 to 18
oوَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنسَانَ وَنَعْلَمُ مَا تُوَسْوِسُ بِهِ نَفْسُهُ وَنَحْنُ أَقْرَبُ إِلَيْهِ مِنْ حَبْلِ الْوَرِيد
مَا يَلْفِظُ مِن قَوْلٍ oإِذْ يَتَلَقَّى الْمُتَلَقِّيَانِ عَنِ الْيَمِينِ وَعَنِ الشِّمَالِ قَعِيدٌ
o إِلَّا لَدَيْهِ رَقِيبٌ عَتِيدٌ
It was We ,Who created man, and We know what his soul whispers. We are nearer to him than (his) jugular vein. Two angels who record whatever he does , one is sitting on the right and one on the left. Not a word does he utters but is noted down by the recorder who is ready to note.
Surah No.59 , Al-Hashr , Ayat No.21 :
لَوْ أَنزَلْنَا هَذَا الْقُرْآنَ عَلَى جَبَلٍ لَّرَأَيْتَهُ خَاشِعًا مُّتَصَدِّعًا مِّنْ خَشْيَةِ اللَّهِ وَتِلْكَ الْأَمْثَالُ نَضْرِبُهَا لِلنَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ
Had we sent down this Quran on a mountain, you would have seen it humble itself and cleave as under for fear of Allah.Such are the Parables that We indicate to men so that they may think and reflect.
Surah No.76 ,Ad Daher , Ayats No.1 to 3
o هَلْ أَتَى عَلَى الْإِنسَانِ حِينٌ مِّنَ الدَّهْرِ لَمْ يَكُن شَيْئًا مَّذْكُورًا
o إِنَّا خَلَقْنَا الْإِنسَانَ مِن نُّطْفَةٍ أَمْشَاجٍ نَّبْتَلِيهِ فَجَعَلْنَاهُ سَمِيعًا بَصِيرًا
oإِنَّا هَدَيْنَاهُ السَّبِيلَ إِمَّا شَاكِرًا وَإِمَّا كَفُورًا
There has been a period of time on Man , when he was nothing - not even mentioned any where ?
Verily We created Man from a drop of mingled sperm (with Ovum), in order to examine him :
So We gave him the gifts, of Hearing and Sight.
We showed him the Way: whether he be grateful or ungrateful (rests on his will).
These verses were revealed some 1400 years back when medical science was not in picture. Allah has indicated some features of Embryology in the above verses and gave a message to the scientists that He is the creator of Human Being.
For such a long period, the Man was nothing, even there was no reference of the man. Then Allah descended man and started creation process of the man by the union of sperm and the ovum. Later on this process was confirmed by the scientists.
In the uterus of the mother, no one knows whether the unborn child will be a literate or illiterate, a believer or a non believer.
Allah has not only given man the power to see and hear but also the power to choose between good and evil. He was not only given wisdom but also the guidance from the Almighty. Then it was left to the man to select a right or wrong path. It is evident that the right path will take him to Paradise and the wrong one will carry him to Hell.

Verily ,We have created man and put him in struggle and trial : Does man think that no one has power over him? And he boast : I have spent vast wealth: Does he think that no one sees him ? Did We not give him two eyes and a tongue and two lips, And guide him to the two highways ( of good and evil )
Surah No.95 ,Teen , Ayat No.4
o لَقَدْ خَلَقْنَاالْإِنسَانَ فِي أَحْسَنِ تَقْوِيمٍ
We have indeed created man in the best of moulds.
