Uncle S pasted to me a quote from Surah Al Alaq (96:1-2) today.
اقْرَأْ بِاسْمِ رَبِّكَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ.خَلَقَ الْإِنسَانَ مِنْ عَلَقٍ
Read in the name of your Master who created. Created man from a Clinging Clot - that Sucks blood (from the mother like a Leech).
when I saw it I went ohohoho! because it reminded me of another quote in Surah Al-Muminun (23:12-14)
And certainly did We create man from an extract (essence) of clay.
Then We placed him as a sperm-drop in a firm lodging.
Then We made the sperm-drop into a clinging clot, and We made the clot into a lump [of flesh], and We made [from] the lump, bones, and We covered the bones with flesh; then We developed him into another creation. So blessed is Allah , the best of creators.
Have We not made the earth as a bed, and the mountains as pegs? (78:6-7)
He has set free the two seas meeting together. There is a barrier between them. They do not transgress. (55:19-20)
He is the one who has set free the two kinds of water, one sweet and palatable, and the other salty and bitter. And He has made between them a barrier and a forbidding partition. (25:53)
Have you not seen how God makes the clouds move gently, then joins them together, then makes them into a stack, and then you see the rain come out of it.... (24:43)
