1.The Original Creation of Man


{Oh mankind! If you are in doubt about the Resurrection, then, verily! We have created you from dust, then from a nutfah (mixed drops of male and female sexual discharge), then from a clot, then from a little lump of flesh, some formed and some unformed, that We may make clear to you (Our Power and Ability). And We cause whom We will to remain in the wombs for an appointed term, then We bring you out as infants, then (make you grow)that you may reach your age of full strength. And among you there is he who dies (young), and among you there is he who is brought back to a miserable old age, so that he knows nothing after having known. And you see the earth barren, but when We send down water on it, it is stirred (back to life), it swells and brings forth every lovely kind (of vegetation).}

[Al-Hajj 22: 5]


As Allah (Mighty & Majestic) created man from dust after he had been nothing and made him move from one stage into another during the period of his formation, He (Mighty & Majestic) is Able to bring him back to life after death and decomposition, just as He created him the first time. Thus no one should deny the final re-creation of man.

     This has been confirmed scientifically; modern science has discovered that:

     After dead bodies break down in the grave into their basic components—from water to dust—one important thing remains: a bone resembling a mustard seed, known as `ajab al-dhanab, the tailbone or coccyx, which does not turn to dust.

     It has also been discovered that:

     This bone is the Primary Organizer, such that all tissues, organs and systems in the embryo are formed from it, and that it never disintegrates.

     We would like to stress that the first person to voice this scientific fact was the chief of all prophets and messengers, Muhammad (pbuh), 1400 years ago, when he related the following hadith:


"Every son of Adam will be devoured by dust, except the tailbone (the coccyx), from it he was created and from it he will be recreated."[Related by Muslim]


This noble hadith from the Prophet (pbuh) is a dazzling light and testimony of the truth that Muhammad (pbuh) was a messenger from the Lord of the Worlds, supported by his Lord (Blessed & Exalted) by great and numerous miracles, proclaiming the final Divine Message from Allah (Blessed & Exalted) as His final prophet and messenger, Muhammad (pbuh).
