"وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنْسَانَ مِنْ سُلَالَةٍ مِنْ طِينٍ ثُمَّ جَعَلْنَاهُ نُطْفَةً فِي قَرَارٍ مَكِينٍ , ثُمَّ خَلَقْنَا النُّطْفَةَ عَلَقَةً فَخَلَقْنَا الْعَلَقَةَ مُضْغَةً فَخَلَقْنَا الْمُضْغَةَ عِظَامًا فَكَسَوْنَا الْعِظَامَ لَحْمًا ثُمَّ أَنْشَأْنَاهُ خَلْقًا آخَرَ ۚ فَتَبَارَكَ اللَّهُ أَحْسَنُ الْخَالِقِينَ ثُمَّ إِنَّكُمْ بَعْدَ ذَٰلِكَ لَمَيِّتُونَ ثُمَّ إِنَّكُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ تُبْعَثُونَ"
"And indeed We created man (Adam) out of an extract of clay (water and earth). Thereafter We made him (the offspring of Adam) as a Nutfah (mixed drops of the male and female sexual discharge and lodged it) in a safe lodging (womb of the woman). Then We made the Nutfah into a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood) (Alaqa), then We made the clot into a little lump of flesh((a mudghah (chewed substance), then We made out of that little lump of flesh bones, then We clothed the bones with flesh, and then We brought it forth as another creation. So Blessed is Allâh, the Best of creators. After that, surely, you will die. Then (again), surely, you will be resurrected on the Day of Resurrection. (23/12-16).
1) I have mentioned these verses before in series 5 but here I added two verses to them to meditate and wonder.Allah (pbth) was talking about life and the creation of human and suddenly Allah (pbth) talked about death and the day of resurrection.This is the beauty of the Quranic style.These are The Holy Words of Allah that astonished the great scholars of the Arabic language and the great experts in languages .
2) Allah (SWT) collected between life and death in these few verses to remind us that life in this world is too short and there is another eternity world "hereafter" or the other day.This wold is for work without account and hereafter is for account and there is no work there.We should take the chance of our existence here to do good deeds and avoid evil deeds.Worship Allah as it befit to his generous face.
3) These verses tell us as there are three main stages in the creation of human ( Nutfah-Alaqah and Mudghah) also there are three stages in the life of human. They are (That world) which is full of seducement and amusement as Allah (SWT) described
"وَمَا الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا إِلَّا لَعِبٌ وَلَهْوٌ ۖ وَلَلدَّارُ الْآخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ لِلَّذِينَ يَتَّقُونَ ۗ أَفَلَا تَعْقِلُونَ"
"What is the life of this world but play and amusement? But best is the Home in the Hereafter, for those who are righteous. Will ye not then understand?" (6/32))
4) The second stage is the stage of death and the third stage is the stage of Hereafter where the resurrection and where the humans stay in front of Allah to be accounted on what he did in this life and there is either paradise or hell
"فَمَنْ يَعْمَلْ مِثْقَالَ ذَرَّةٍ خَيْرًا يَرَهُ , وَمَنْ يَعْمَلْ مِثْقَالَ ذَرَّةٍ شَرًّا يَرَه"
Then shall anyone who has done an atom's weight of good, see it! And anyone who has done an atom's weight of evil, shall see it. (99/7-8
