Destiny in the Womb (Hadith No. 315)

Salam,
Bismillah.

Hadith no. 314 is a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 1, Book 6, Number 315:

Narrated Anas bin Malik:

The Prophet said, “At every womb Allah appoints an angel who says, ‘O Lord! A drop of semen, O Lord! A clot. O Lord! A little lump of flesh.” Then if Allah wishes (to complete) its creation, the angel asks, (O Lord!) Will it be a male or female, a wretched or a blessed, and how much will his provision be? And what will his age be?’ So all that is written while the child is still in the mother’s womb.”

How amazing is that? SubhanAllah! All that information in our DNA (and more) is put in when we’re nothing but a lump of flesh. Is that not enough to make us humble before Allah (SWT)? As He says in the Qur’an:

قُتِلَ الْإِنسَانُ مَا أَكْفَرَهُ
مِنْ أَيِّ شَيْءٍ خَلَقَهُ
مِن نُّطْفَةٍ خَلَقَهُ فَقَدَّرَهُ
ثُمَّ السَّبِيلَ يَسَّرَهُ

“Be cursed (the disbelieving) man! How ungrateful he is!
From what thing did He create him?
From Nutfah (male and female semen drops) He created him and then set him in due proportion.
Then He makes the Path easy for him.” [‘Abasa: 17-20]

I wonder if we’d still believe in it with such conviction if science hadn’t discovered the DNA and forensic science as yet. I just wonder..

Wassalam.
