Allah (SWT) says in the Qur’aan about the stages of the creation of Man:
Man we did create from a quintessence (of clay); Then we placed as (a drop of) sperm (nutfah ) in a place firmly fixed; Then we made the sperm into a clot of congealed blood (‘alaqah ); Then of that clot we made a (fetus) lump ( mudghah); then we made out of that lump bones and clothed the bones with flesh; then we developed out of it another creature.(Qur’aan 23:12-14).
The Arabic word ‘alaqah has three meanings. The first meaning is “leech”.The second is “a suspended thing”.The third meaning is “a blood clot”.
In comparing the fresh-water leech to the embryo at the ‘alaqah stage , Professor Moore found a great similarity between the two. He concluded that the embryo during the ‘alaqah stage
acquires an appearance very similar to that of leech . Professor Moore placed a picture of the embryo side by side with the picture of a leech, and he presented these pictures to scientists at several conferences; nobody could contest the evidence.
The second meaning of the word ‘ alaqah is “a suspended thing”, and this is what we can see in the attachment of the embryo during the ‘alaqah stage to the uterus (womb) of the mother. The third meaning of the word ‘ alaqah is “a blood clot”. It is significant to note, as Professor Moore stated, that the embryo during the ‘ alaqah stage goes through well known internal events, such as the formation of blood in closed vessels, until the metabolic cycle is completed through placenta. During the ‘ alaqah stage, the blood is caught within closed vessels and that is why the embryo acquires the appearance of a blood clot, in addition to the leech-like appearance. Both descriptions are miraculously given by a single Qur’aanic word ‘alaqah. How could Muhammad have possibly known that by himself?
Professor Moore also studied the embryo at the mudghah (chewed-like substance) stage.He took a piece of raw clay and chewed it in his mouth, then compared it with a picture of the embryo at the mudghah stage. Professor Moore concluded that the embryo at the mudghah stage acquires the exact appearance of a chewed-like substance.
Several Canadian periodicals published many of Professor Moore’s statements. In addition, he presented three television programs, in which he highlighted the compatibility of modern science with what has been contained in the Qur’aan for one thousand and four hundred years. The book, “The Developing Human” written by Professor Keith Moore has been translated in eight languages. This book is considered a scientific reference work, and was chosen by a special committee in the United States as the best book authored by one person
