Pictures calling you to praise Allah

it is the journey of creation which Allah, the Almighty, ordered us to contemplate at, to realize Allah's blessing bestowed upon us and what beautiful when the believer lives submissively, even for seconds, when he sees the power of Allah is reflected in the creation of the fetus in his mother's womb.
All praises to you Allah! Who created us in the most beautiful, most magnificent and best form, and granted us your blessings, the apparent and the hidden. You are more knowing of us than ourselves; you have talked to us in your glorious book saying: “He knows you well when He created you from the earth, and when you were fetuses in your mothers’ wombs. So ascribe not purity to yourselves. He knows best him who fears Allâh and keeps his duty to Him" (An Najm: 32). Oh Allah, we shall neither ascribe purity to ourselves nor to anyone else, as you are more knowing of our doings and more knowing of what fits our situation, so prepare for us a knowledge that gives us benefit and makes us closer to you.
Your wisdom required to create us from soil!! As if you are telling us not to become arrogant as the material that we were created from is the cheapest material on the Earth!! Then you made us a sperm that can not be seen and has no value and almost weightless! However, you have bestowed in this small cell the most complicated programs on the surface of the Earth so that this complication and proficiency will testify your power, your greatness and your creation…
We, our Lord, seek nothing except your mercy and there is nothing we love more than meeting you, as you have talked to us saying: "Whoever hopes for the Meeting with Allâh, then Allâh’s Term is surely coming and He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower." (Al Ankabut: 5). And we pray to you to make these scientific facts a mean to see through it your might reflected in ourselves: " And also in your ownselves. Will you not then see?" (21: Az Zariyat). So, will you be satisfied with us? Oh The Eternal Owner of Sovereignty and The Creator of everything!
Dear brothers and sisters in Allah, this is an introduction I loved to start with to make sure that this science, namely the miracles of the Quran, is a way to know Allah, the Almighty. One brother told me once:
Why do you search in these sciences and waste your time??? I'm a believer in the Quran and in the message of Islam, and a believer in Allah, the Almighty, and I do not need proofs on this!
I said to him: my brother, what is the number of the verses of the Quran?
He said: this does not increase my belief then I said to him: what is the number of the chapters of the Quran?
He said: I do not remember, and it is not important.
I said to him: what is the meaning of (By the heaven full of paths)?
He said: this needs interpretation and I'm not specialized in it!
Then I asked him: what is the meaning of (A lying, sinful forelock!), (And you will see the mountains and think them solid), (Alif-Lâm-Mîm), and other questions which shows the extent of the believer's heart attachment to the book of his Lord and the extent of his care to understand this Quran and meditate it, but he was replying and saying that these things are not necessary to increase the faith!
Then I asked him to tell me who is the prophet who said this supplication "O My Lord! Leave me not single (childless), though You are the Best of the inheritors." he said: I don't know, then I said: who is the prophet who said: " I put my trust in Allâh, my Lord and your Lord! There is not a moving (living) creature but He has the grasp of its forelock"… and the answer was the same, these questions are not necessary and knowing it is not an obligation!
I said to him after that: you are completely ignorant of the Quran, and so you are a believer of something that you are unaware of, therefore you are a believer of the unknown! What will you say to Allah, the Almighty, who will ask you in the day of judgment about this Quran: "And verily this (the Qur’an) is indeed a Reminder for you (O Muhammad) and your people (Quraish people, or your followers), and you will be questioned (about it). " (Az Zughruf: 44).
By Allah that anyone of us would be ashamed from a friend if he gifted him a book and asked him later if he read it, he would be ashamed to say I did not read it! Then, what will you say to Allah, the Almighty, when you stand between His hands without a veil between you and Him and Asks you: what did you do with this Quran, what did you learn from it? What services did you provide to this book which you claim that you love? Therefore, prepare yourself brother for these questions before that day comes, and do not think that you are better than Allah's apostle Muhammad, peace be upon him, who was watching a whole single night meditating one verse: "If You punish them, they are Your slaves, and if You forgive them, verily You, only You, are the All-Mighty, the All-Wise" (Al Maeda: 118). So, how many times you thought to allot even an hour to meditate one verse of Allah's verses!!!
I used to hear one Hadith saying: "one hour meditation is better than one year worship", and I got astonished, but in deed I have realized that Allah, the Almighty Do not give rewards for the quantity of the doing but rather for the quality of it!
The companions of the prophet, peace be upon him, are many, and those who converted to Islam and were killed for the name of Allah shortly after they become Muslims, if we counted the number of the prayer units they did, we would find the few, but Allah, the Almighty made them with the prophets, pious, martyrs and righteous people because of a thing that we might see it simple but it is great in Allah's count, it is the honesty with Allah: " then if they had been true to Allah, it would have been better for them" (Muhammad: 21).
Honesty, sincerity and thinking well of Allah, all those do not need the action of the body organs, it is rather the action of the heart that does not need much time and effort, it is the result of meditation in Allah's, the Almighty, creation and power.
I'd like to tell you that my faith a year ago, for example, was not as straight as today, due to the growing of my knowledge in Allah's signs, Allah's miracles and might.
The science of miracles of the Quran, my beloved brothers, is the best way in this time to realize anything from Allah's greatness and power in his creation, and it is not enough to study the biography of the prophet, peace be upon him, without following it as example! I wonder from a person who claims that he applies the teachings of Quran and Sunnah, then when you ask him what are your information in Embryology?, he says: it is not obligation on me to learn such a science! And I say: then, when Allah addressed the human being saying: "So let man see from what he is created!" (Al Tariq: 5). I do not know who is intended in this appeal: the believer or the disbeliever?
And what does it mean? Should we set and wait without thinking, studying and meditating? Should we leave the non-Muslim western scientists to search, see and apply this verse practically in their labs, then say we are not concerned in this science!!
Therefore, my beloved ones, I will accompany you in a modest journey in the world of the creation of the embryo, so that we may become more faithful in Allah, the Almighty, and become more acquainted of the Ever Great Creator. And we shall use the language of pictures that the scientists had taken for embryos in their mother's wombs from sperm till he gets out as a child, let us contemplate and praise Allah that He has honored us with these sciences.

- Islam means "submission to God in peace". Islam teaches there is only One God, whose primary name is "Allah" in the Arabic language. Islam is the same essential message given to all the prophets, from Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and finally to the Last Prophet, Muhammad, (peace be upon them all). They all proclaimed the same basic Divine message: worship only God, stop worshipping human beings and other created things There's a different between Islam and Muslims!! What's the purpose of life? What Do You Know About Islam? Not what you have heard about Islam, not what you have seen in the actions of some Muslims, but what do you really know about Islam?
