Can I have information about how we were created?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

According to the Quran, we can study the creation of man in two parts: the creation of Hazrat Adam and the creation of man in the womb. The creation of Eve should be added to the first one and the creation of Jesus should be added to the second one.

The verses in the Quran regarding the creation of Hazrat Adam (pbuh) are as follows: (3)

"Behold thy Lord said to the angels: ‘I will create a vicegerent on earth’." (al-Baqara 30).

"We created man from sounding clay, from mud molded into shape" (al-Hijr 26).

"He created man from sounding clay like unto pottery. (ar-Rahman 14)

"…Are they the more difficult to create, or the (other) beings We have created? Them have We created out of a sticky clay" (as-Saaffat 11)

"He Who has made everything which He has created most Good. He began the creation of man with (nothing more than) clay" (as-Sajda 7)

"Man We did create from a quintessence (of clay)" (al-Mu'minun 12)

"He it is who created you from clay, and then decreed a stated term (for you)" (al-Anam 2).

"From the (earth) did We create you" (Taha 55)

"Among His Signs is this that He created you from dust; and then Behold ye are men scattered (far and wide)!" (ar-Rum 20)

"... Iblis said "Shall I bow down to one whom Thou didst create from clay?" (al-Isra 61, al-Araf 12, Sad 76)

To sum up those verses, "Adam was created from clay" (al-Isra 61, al-Araf 12, Sad 76, as-Sajda 7),

"Them have We created out of a sticky clay" (Saffat 11)

" Man We did create from a quintessence (of clay)" (al-Mu’minun 12)

" We created man from sounding clay, from mud molded into shape " (al-Hjcr 26, ar-Rahman 14). (3).

Adam is a Hebrew word that means a being that emerged from soil; earth, dust; it is stated that Adam was created from mud, that is, a mixture of the soil and water; to put it more clearly, from sounding clay molded into shape; and he revived after the divine spirit was breathed into him:

"He Who has made everything which He has created most Good. He began the creation of man with (nothing more than) clay" (as-Sajda 7)

"But He fashioned him in due proportion, and breathed into him something of His spirit. And He gave you (the faculties of) hearing and sight and feeling (and understanding)" (as-Sajda 9) (3).

In fact, it is known that what constitutes the structure of not only man but also all living beings are the elements in soil and water and that the human organism consists of 30% inorganic and organic matter and 70% water. If that constitution is taken into consideration, it will be seen that the human organism consists mostly of water. Water gives the life. Similarly, plants, animals and everything come from the soil and return to it and become soil.  

The creation of man in the womb is stated as follows in the Quran:

"Has there not been over Man a long period of Time, when he was nothing--(not even) mentioned?― Verily We created Man from a drop of mingled sperm, in order to try him: so We gave him (the gifts), of Hearing and Sight. " (al-Insan,2).

"Then We placed him as (a drop of) sperm in a place of rest firmly fixed" (al-Mu'minun 13).

"Then We made the sperm into a clot of congealed blood; then of that clot We made a (fetus) lump; then We made out of that lump bones and clothed the bones with flesh; then We developed out of it another creature: so blessed be Allah, the Best to create" (al-Mu'minun 14).

" It is He Who has created you from dust, then from a sperm-drop, then from a leech-like clot; then does He get you out (into the light) as a child: then lets you (grow and) reach your age of full strength; then lets you become old " (Ghafir, 67).

" O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise each other) " (al-Hujurat 13)

" That He did create the pairs male and female. From a seed when lodged (in its place); "(an-Najm 45-46)

" He it is Who shapes you in the wombs as He pleases.." (Aal-i-Imran 6)

" He has created man from a sperm― drop " (an-Nahl 4).

"And He has multiplied you through the earth" (al-Mu'minun 79)

" It is We who created you and gave you shape " (al-Araf 11)

" It is He Who has created man from water: then has He established relationships of lineage and marriage " (al-Furqan 54)

" Doth not man see that it is We Who created Him from sperm?" (Yasin 77)

" Seeing that it is He that has created you in diverse stages " (Nuh 14)

" Have We not created you from a fluid (held) despicable? The which We placed in a place of rest, firmly fixed. For a period (of gestation), determined (according to need)? (al-Mursalat 20,21,22)

"Was he not a drop of sperm emitted (in lowly form)? Then did he become a clining clot; then did (Allah) make and fashion (him) in due proportion. And of him He made two sexes, male and female. " (al-Qiyama 37,38,39)

" It is He who hath produced you from a single person " (al-Anam 98)

" From what stuff Hath He created him?  From a sperm-drop: He hath created him, and then moldeth him in due proportions; Then, doth He make His path smooth for him " (Abasa 18,19,20)

" We have indeed created man in the best of molds " (at-Tin 4)

" Proclaim! (or Read!) in the name of thy Lord and Cherisher, Who created― Created man, out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood. (al-Alaq 1,2) (3).

Those verses, which express the formation of the fetus in the womb, are like the description of the embryological development. The study of the formation of the fetus in the womb and its phases of development determined by Keith Moore, Canada Toronto University Anatomy Professor, through the latest technological methods and comparing them with the verses of the Quran and hadiths is like the proof of the Quranic verses mentioned above and the hadiths of the Prophet of Islam.
