Science and Religion Agree- Life and Men Are From Clay

The first human being was created by Allah, shaping clay into human form and breathing a soul into it: Now latest science and the religions agree that life and men are from clay, all humans are made of clay. There have been an infinite number of speculations about man’s creation out of clay (the



combination made of dust and water). After the developments in biology and chemistry, analytical studies of clay and the human body were carried out. The result showed that the constituents of clay and those of the human body fit exactly. Let us enumerate these constituents: iron, calcium, oxygen, sodium, potassium, magnesium, hydrogen, chlorine, iodine, manganese, lead, phosphorous, carbon, zinc, sulfur, and nitrogen. The artistry of God was to combine this inanimate matter to create man.

The Proportionate Distribution of Body Clay Elements


These elements are harmoniously and proportionately Man From Clay-6distributed in the body at birth; the body is programmed to make use of them in due proportion and to dispose of any surplus. The human body contains about 2kg calcium. If there is a decrease in this amount, the very act of biting into an apple may cause our teeth to break. Our body needs 120gr of potassium. A decrease of it may cause muscle cramps, fatigue, intestinal troubles, and palpitations. We need only about 2gr to 3gr of zinc. Any lowering in these values may cause loss of memory, impotence, decrease of the capability to act and weakening of the senses of smell and taste. Insufficiency of selenium may bring about the weakening of muscles, hardening of arteries and heart muscles. All these data show that God, while making use of clay as raw material for man, combined its constituents in ideal proportions

The Quran is exact in its statements. Creating a living being such as man from such ordinary matter is one of the manifestations of the omniscience of God. Careful combination in due proportion of all the constituents of the human body demonstrates God’s matchless design. The creation of man, a masterpiece, out of a matter of simple aspect like clay, shows again the greatness of God.

Latest Scientific Report

Cornell University Scientists report in the Nov. 7 ‘ 2013 online issue of thejournal “Scientific Reports, published by Nature that might have revealed themystery around formation of life on earth. Their research shows that clay supported the synthesis of biochemical. Clay, a seemingly infertile blend of

minerals, might have been the birthplace of life on Earth. That won’t be a huge  surprise to adherent of many major world religions , past and present, The Bibleand Injeel talk almost the same thing , on the typical mechanism for the appearance of life. Quran is more elaborate and clear , and explains it at many places the functions related to existence of life .

Quran Revealed Information Many Centuries Earlier


When to the angels, your lord did say

“ I am about to create a human being out of clay



When I have shaped him, and breathed My spirit in him

Fall you down, bowing before him” (Quran-38:72)


37_11Ask them, were they more difficult to create than our many things

For We created them (merely) out of clay clinging



We created man out of an extraction of clay


 The Arabic word “sulala,” translated as “extract” in the verse, means “representative example, essence.”

21_30Are then the unbelievers unaware?

 That one single entity, heavens and earth were

Which We then parted asunder, and We made out of water every living thing

Will they not, then (start) believing?


25_54And it is He who created out of water, a mortal

Made him (aware of relationship) of blood and marriage, your Lord is all powerful


The lesson of life existence  is mentioned in the Quran 1400 years ago even before scientists found the genetic similarities of monkeys ,apes & humans. What scientists have found is true but their opinion of the theory of evolution is wrong. Quran is word of God & it has the information of past,present& future. God reveled to prophet Muhammad whatever God wanted to & kept some information only to God by reveling some & not reveling some. But still Quran is # 1 great source of information from God.
