Quran Corrects Scientists on Embryology

Quran debunks scientists of the 17th century on the FUNNY HOHOMUNCULUS

A misconception among Westerners until the 17th century: the human fetus is a dwarf that increases in size


The fetus is generated from menstrual blood
Aristotle and Thales
Jacob Royef’s book  1554 AD


The fetus is born fully
In a woman’s oocyte
Drawing by artist (Leonard Fancy)
For the sperm

Léonard de Vinci


The fetus is born fully in the oocyte of the woman, after the discovery of
microscopy period
Hartsacker’s drawing of the sperm
1695 AD.


15 centuries ago, Muslim scholars rejected the idea of a fetus born from menstrual blood, and the idea of a fetus being created fully in the men’s sperm based  on Quranic verses and prophetic hadiths.

In 1674, a student, Nicolaas Hartsoeker (1656-1725) and van Leeuwenhoek were the first to examine semen microscopically, a situation that would later lead to 👉dispute between them over the discovery of sperm (cited in Clarke, 2006).
Hartsoeker postulated the existence of a preformed individual in the sperm, consistent with his spermist theory of preformation, and produced the now famous drawing of a tiny man or ‘homunculus’ curled up inside the sperm head in his Essai de Dioptrique in 1694

Nicolas Hartsoeker postulated the existence of animalcules in the semen of human
This was the beginning of spermists’ theory, which held that the sperm was in fact a “little man” that was placed inside a woman for growth into a child, a neat explanation for many of the mysteries of conception


Nicolaas Hartsoeker’s drawing of the homunculus from 1694, which shows a tiny man curled up inside a sperm, or animalcules as they were called then.




In contrary to this ignorance of the western scientists in the 7th century
Quran corrects scientists and reveals the following

Has there [not] come upon man a period of time when he was not a thing [even] mentioned?

Indeed, We created man from a sperm-drop mixture that We may try him; and We made him hearing and seeing.

QURAN 80:19
We created man from Nutfah (male and female semen drops) then set him in due proportion” proportioned him

I.e: 👉Decree of chromosomes.
