A comparative study of fetal formation from the perspective of interpretation of Quran and science with emphasis on verses 5 to 7 of chapter al-Tariq
Ali Karbalaei Pazouki , Qudsiya Ali Awsat
Abstract:   (266 Views)
The verses 5 to 7 of chapter al-Tariq state the quality of human creation. Differences on the literal meaning and reality of "loins" and "breast-bones" have led to the differences of opinion among commentators on how to interpret these verses. Thus, some have speculated that these verses have ambiguity and conceptual similarity. The present study seeks to understand the true meaning of "loins" and "breast-bones, the role of men and women in the formation of the fetus and the relationship between science and the Qurchr('39')an in this regard. Most commentators and translators have attributed " loins" to the backs of men and "breast-bones" to womenchr('39')s chest bones, and the "effusing fluid" to men. This has raised doubts about the conflict between science and the Qurchr('39')an in the formation of the fetus in humans. The results of this study indicate that the meaning of "الصلب" is back and the bones of the back and the meaning of "الترائب" is chest and front bones of the breast. In conclusion, the phrase "between the loins and the breast-bones" implies the whole body and both man and women contribute in the formation of the fetus. They have an active and accepting role, which is conceptually compatible with the findings of modern medical sciences. 
Keywords: Verses 5 to 7 of Tariq, Scientific interpretation, "loins" and "breast-bones", human creation, fetus.
