The Qur’an and Human Embryology: A Further Study

Dildar Ahmed


This is a study of the verses referring to human embryologic development in the Glorious Qur'an. While these verses can be included as part of the "scientific miracle" of the Qur'an, the author emphasizes that the actual intent is to draw attention to the creative power of God and His blessings on humans so they may become thankful.
