Human Anatomy: A Microscopic View

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Alhamdulillahirabbil'alamin..Allah Almighty has given us the chance to breathe and live for another day. He is the Most Compassionate for giving us comfort, wealth and health. So little do we thank Him..

The programme that I am currently studying right now has nothing whatsoever to do with human anatomy. That is maybe one of the main reasons why I chose to write about it in this entry. (Not to say that I am tired of microbes)

The Qur'an describes how Allah created Adam: "We created man from sounding clay, from mud moulded into shape..." (15:26). And, "He began the creation of man from clay, and made his progeny from a quintessence of fluid" (32:7-8).

These microscopic photos are taken using a scanning electron microscope (SEM) which uses a total magnification of 250 000 times, which, obviously, can't be seen using the naked eye. Let us heal our iman and faith by witnessing the wonders of our Creator, Allah Almighty. Praise to Allah, SubhanAllah..

"Have We not created you from a fluid (held) despicable? The which We placed in a place of rest, firmly fixed, For a period (of gestation), determined (according to need)? For We do determine (according to need); for We are the Best to determine (things)."

"Bukankah Kami telah menciptakan kamu dari air (benih) yang sedikit dipandang orang? Lalu Kami jadikan air (benih) itu pada tempat penetapan yang kukuh, Hingga ke suatu masa yang termaklum? Serta Kami tentukan (keadaannya), maka Kamilah sebaik-baik yang berkuasa menentukan dan melakukan (tiap-tiap sesuatu)!"
