Abstract

The human embryo begins with fertilization of ovum. The zygote is then implanted in the mother’s uterus and goes through different stages of development until it becomes a full-fledged baby after about 09 months. Different stages of embryonic development are mentioned in Al-Qur'an. "He is the One who created you from dust, then from a drop of semen, then from a clot. After that, He takes you out as an infant. Then, (He makes you grow) so that you reach your full maturity, and, thereafter, become old – and some of you die earlier – and so that you reach the appointed term, and so that you understand” (40:67). In the womb, where nutrients and oxygen are supplied to the fetus from the mother's blood. The mother's blood is also receiving the metabolic wastes of the developing foetus. The Lord of the Worlds keeps the embryo in a liquid amniotic fluid during its growth to protect it from the physical shocks of the environment. ALLAH S.W.T says in Al-Qur'an. "Then we turned the sperm-drop into a clot, then we turned the clot into a fetus-lump, then we turned the fetus-lump into bones, then we clothed the bones with flesh; thereafter we developed it into another creature. So, glorious is ALLAH, the Best of the creators” (23:14). The above verse clearly demonstrates different morphological stages of the embryonic development; which the modern science of developmental biology has elaborated much later. After birth the human body like infants of other mammals is provided with mother milk. Scientists are convinced that there is no replacement of mother milk regarding its nutritional status for the baby. The very much importance of mother milk has been stressed in the Holy Quran and rules have been established that even in case of divorce, the mother feeding be continued and the expenditure incurred in such cases are to be managed by father of the baby. This clearly demonstrates that Quran is the books of orders of the Allah S.W.T. who is creator of the whole universe and is thus well aware with well beings of every creature including human and his all dictations are for our own benefits here in this world as well world hereafter.
