Allah has given the example of a Mosquito in Quran, to show us how this little creature has an extremely complicated structure . There are scientific miracles that remained unknown till our modern age. The most strange discovery by Science is that there is another very small Microscopic Insect living on top of this Mosquito!
One of the animals mentioned in the Quran is the “mosquito.” When idolaters of Makkah heard verses telling about enormous animals such as elephant and camel, they accepted the Prophet and his invitation and did not object to the companions. Nevertheless, they had been hopelessly looking for ways to objects to mock at the verses containing small things like mosquito.
The Quranic account of a mosquito which is so different from that of all other animals. It is the only animal which is mentioned with an emphatic denial that its creation could present any cause for embarrassment to its Creator. Thus declares the Quran: (2-26)
Surely Allah is not ashamed to set forth any parable– (that of) a Mosquito or any thing above that; then as for those who believe, they know that it is the truth from their Lord, and as for those who disbelieve, they say: What is it that Allah means by this parable: He causes many to err by it and many He leads aright by it! but He does not cause to err by it (any) except the transgressors.
The Quranic word used for Mosquite is specifically that of a female mosquito. Of course, there is a significant wisdom in why the Quran mentions female mosquito specially. However, this wisdom came into light hundreds of years after the verse was sent down, as a result of some scientific researches
Fact One – There are about 2700 species of mosquito
Fact Two – A mosquito can weigh between 2 and 2.5 milligrams
Fact Three – A female mosquito can drink around 5-millionths of a litter of blood (Aedes aegypti)
Fact Four – Mosquitos have 100 eyes or more
Fact Five – When there is a full moon, mosquito bites increase by 500 times
Fact Six – Mosquito wings beat 500 times a second
Fact Seven – The animal that is responsible for the most human deaths world wide is… the mosquito
Fact Eight – Mosquitoes prefer children to adults
Fact Nine – They dislike citronella as it irritates their feet
Fact Ten – A mosquito can detect a moving target from 18 ft away
Fact Eleven – A male mosquito lives between 10 and 20 days
Fact Twelve – A female mosquito lives between 3 and 100 days
“The Mosquito, an ordinary little creature!!! ALLAH gives us its example in the Quran, to show us how this little creature has an extremely complicated nature
1- The one mentioned in Quran is a female
2- It has one hundred eyes in it’s head
3- It has 48 teeth in it’s mouth
4- Inside it’s little body there are three complete Hearts!!
5- It has six knives in it’s nose and each knife has it’s special use
6- It has three wings on each side
7- In the body of this insect is a digital X-RAY machine, which it uses to distinguish the human skin in the dark, in violet colour
8- It’s body also contains a small vaccine working as a local anaesthetic to help it to insert its thorns in the human skin without any feel or pain caused by the suction of the blood
9- It has an instrument for blood testing, because it doesn’t like all blood types!!
10- It has a special mechanism to speed up the blood flow so it can draw it faster!
AND the most strange discovery by Science is that there is another very small Microscopic Insect living on top of this Mosquito!!
“O men! Here is a parable set forth! Listen to it! Those on whom, besides God, ye call, cannot create (even) a fly, if they all met together for the purpose! And if the fly should snatch away anything from them, they would have no power to release it from the fly. Feeble are those who petition and those whom they petition!” (al-Hajj, 73)
AND that is what ALLAH means in the verse 26 of Surah Al-Baqarah:
“Surely Allah is not ashamed to set forth a parable even of a mosquito or any thing above that;” (Quran 2:26)
Of course, there is a significant wisdom in why the Quran mentions female spider specially. However, this wisdom came into light hundreds of years after the verse was sent down, as a result of some scientific researches. As you read in details, mosquitoes which suck people’s blood and use it for their eggs are female mosquitoes. This is why the Quran chose the female mosquito for the similitude in order to point out to this reality.
