1-  Allah Almighty's Divine Claims:

The Holy Quran and Islam are filled with scientific statements and notions.  These are statements of Allah Almighty describing how He created things on earth and in the Universe.  What's most amazing is that all of these scientific statements and notions had been proven to be in perfect agreement with science and our modern-day scientific discoveries.  Allah Almighty made the Noble Quran be Prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) Everlasting Divine Miracle and proof for Prophethood.  The Holy Book certainly stood the test of time 1,500 years ago with Its Claims, Prophecies and Miraculous language eloquence, and it does again and again in our day today with Its overwhelming agreement with science and discoveries that were not known to man 1,500 years ago.

Allah Almighty Said: "We will show them Our signs in the Universe and inside their selves, until it will become quite clear to them that it is the truth. Is it not sufficient as regards your Lord that He is a witness over all things?  (The Noble Quran, 41:53)"

With this said, let us what Allah Almighty Said in the Glorious Quran:

Noble Verse(s) 51:49
Yusuf Ali:

[051:049]  And of every thing We have created pairs: That ye may receive instruction.

Sher Ali:

[051:049]  And of everything have WE created pairs that you may reflect.

Shakir:

[051:049]  And of everything We have created pairs that you may be mindful.

Arabic (from right to left):

51:49 ومن كل شئ خلقنا زوجين لعلكم تذكرون

In this Noble Verse, we see Allah Almighty Declaring that of everything that He created, He Created pairs or two kinds for them.  This Noble Verse does not speak about sexual reproduction.  It clearly and indisputably Says that of every kind of creation out there, two kinds of this creation/species exist.  To us, we might think of them as males and females, but this is not always correct, for there are asexual (sexless) creations, such as the Angels, that Allah Almighty mentioned in the Glorious Quran:

"Or that We created the angels female, and they are witnesses (thereto)?  (The Noble Quran, 37:150)"

"And they make into females angels who themselves serve God. Did they witness their creation? Their evidence will be recorded, and they will be called to account!  (The Noble Quran, 43:19)"

"Those who believe not in the Hereafter, name the angels with female names (The Noble Quran, 53:27)"

  
So what does "everything" (كل شئ) then mean in Noble Verse 51:49?  If Angels are excluded, then obviously, "everything" here could not be applied to all of the Creations of Allah Almighty.  So to me, this Noble Verse is speaking about the things that are created from dust, like us humans, and the things that exist on planet earth and other similar planets.  This is further supported in the following Noble Verses:

Noble Verse(s) 21:30
Yusuf Ali:

[021:030]  Do not the Unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together (as one unit of creation), before we clove them asunder? We made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe?

Arabic (from right to left):

21:30 اولم ير الذين كفروا ان السماوات والارض كانتا رتقا ففتقناهما وجعلنا من الماء كل شئ حي افلايؤمنون

How can the Angels and the Jinns be made alive with water when they were created from light and fire respectively?

"And the Jinn race, We had created before, from the fire of a scorching wind.  (The Noble Quran, 15:27)"

"'A'isha reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: The Angels were born out of light and the Jinns were born out of the spark of fire and Adam was born as he has been defined (in the Qur'an) for you (i. e. he is fashioned out of clay).  (Translation of Sahih Muslim, Book 42: The Book Pertaining to Piety and Softening of Hearts (Kitab Al-Zuhd wa Al-Raqa'iq), Number 71:34)"

How can water and fire, as we know them, coexist harmoniously with each others?  In other words, how could the Jinns live off of our water when they were created from fire?  And how could the Angels who were created from light also live off of water as we know it?

So to me, it is clear that "everything" (كل شئ) in Noble Verse 51:49 is limited to our worldly creations; the creations that exist on earth, and any similar ones that exist elsewhere on other planets [1] [2].

  

  

2-  The Scientific Proofs:

In this section, we will see with ample proofs, and without the shadow of a doubt, that the Glorious Quran's Divine Claims remain Scientifically correct and Miraculous.

  

(a)-  Species that are created in pairs:

Obviously, the number of those species is virtually countless.  From the humans, to the plants, to the animals that we know; all of these consist of pairs (males and females) in their communities.  They are either males or females.  All of the pets that humans have, and all of the domestic farm animals, and all of the birds, reptiles, predators and preys; all of them have the pairs of males and females in their communities.  Hence, this group of species certainly testifies to the Divine Miracle of the Glorious Quran.

  

(b)-  What about the Hermaphrodite and Parthenogenesis (asexual, sexless) species?

1-  Hermaphrodite species are those that have both the male and female organs and can reproduce by themselves due to those organs:

"The term is sometimes used inaccurately to describe reproduction modes in hermaphroditic species which can reproduce by themselves because they contain reproductive organs of both sexes."  (Source)

Certainly, these species do not contradict at all the Glorious Quran.  On the contrary, they further prove Allah Almighty's Divine Claims, because here we have a group of species that still need to reproduce by having the pairs in them.  Yes, it would be one specie reproducing by itself, assuming that this is scientifically accurate to begin with, since much of these studies are still unconfirmed theories, as shown below, especially in the microscopic world, but be as it may, each specie in this group, nonetheless:

  1. Is still a representation of the pairs.  It could be one or the other or both.
      
  2. Wouldn't be able to reproduce if it didn't have those two organs in it.
      
  3. Still produces both males and females, as further shown below.

Therefore, this group of species certainly testifies to the Divine Miracle of the Glorious Quran, because the pairs exist among them.

  
2-  Parthenogenesis species are asexual or sexless.  They are believed to not have any sex in them:

"Parthenogenesis (from the Greek παρθένος parthenos, "virgin", + γένεσις genesis, "creation") is a form of asexual reproduction found in females, where growth and development of embryos occurs without fertilization by a male. In plants, parthenogenesis means development of an embryo from an unfertilized egg cell, and is a component process of apomixis. The offspring produced by parthenogenesis are always female in species that use the XY sex-determination system.

Parthenogenesis occurs naturally in some invertebrate animal species (e.g. water fleas, aphids, nematodes, some bees, some Phasmida, some scorpion species, and parasitic wasps), and vertebrates (e.g. some reptiles,[1] fish, and very rarely birds[2] and sharks[3]) and this type of reproduction has been induced artificially in other species.

Parthenogenesis is seen to occur naturally in aphids, Daphnia, rotifers, nematodes and some other invertebrates, as well as in many plants. Komodo dragons and the hammerhead- and blacktip sharks have recently been added to the list of vertebrates—along with several genera of fish, amphibians, and reptiles—that exhibit differing forms of asexual reproduction, including true parthenogenesis, gynogenesis, and hybridogenesis (an incomplete form of parthenogenesis). As with all types of asexual reproduction, there are both costs (low genetic diversity and therefore susceptibility to adverse mutations that might occur) and benefits (reproduction without the need for a male) associated with parthenogenesis.

The offspring of parthenogenesis will be all female if two like chromosomes determine the female sex (such as the XY sex-determination system), but they will be male if two like chromosomes determine the male sex (such as the ZW sex-determination system), because the process involves the inheritance and subsequent duplication of only a single sex chromosome. The offspring may be capable of sexual reproduction, if this mode exists in the species. In many cases, parthenogenesis occurs when one gender (typically the male) is unavailable in the general vicinity. Once males are again available, the parthenogenesis-created females would be capable of mating with the males and creating normal offspring.[4](Source)

As we clearly and indisputably see, the scientists themselves:

1-  Never unlocked all of the deep secrets of how these animals truly reproduce.

2-  Are unsure of how exactly the reproduction occurs with these species.

3-  These species are NOT ASEXUAL because they still do produce males and females as the red quotes above clearly state.

4-  The scientists claims are no more than speculations at best!  They are uncertainties and doubts; unconfirmed science.

Therefore, to use this bogus nonsense against Islam and against Allah Almighty is not acceptable.  The scientists seem to have yet still to scratch the surface of unlocking the deep secretes of how these animals truly reproduce.  All they have right now are unconfirmed and uncertain speculations, statements and theories.  But in all cases, we still have the male and female reproductions among these species!  So yes, the pairs are still there in these communities.  A single specie of them is still either a male or female according even to those scientists.  It is not a true asexual specie, and the scientists themselves are clearly uncertain about what to make of these species.

  

(c)-  What about cloning of animals and their creation?

Does the creation/birth of animals through cloning, today, contradict and disprove the Glorious Quran? 

Answer:  No, because the born babies from this community still consist of males or a females.  So pairs are created from this community of species.  Again, Allah Almighty Said:

Noble Verse(s) 51:49
Yusuf Ali:

[051:049]  And of every thing We have created pairs: That ye may receive instruction.

Sher Ali:

[051:049]  And of everything have WE created pairs that you may reflect.

Shakir:

[051:049]  And of everything We have created pairs that you may be mindful.

Arabic (from right to left):

51:49 ومن كل شئ خلقنا زوجين لعلكم تذكرون

Also, Allah Almighty did make a clear and precise Claim and Prophecy in the Glorious about mankind will eventually follow the path of satan and will alter the creation of Allah Almighty through slitting the ears and cloning of creatures.  Please visit:

    3-  Conclusion:

    Again, the Holy Quran and Islam are filled with scientific statements and notions.  These are statements of Allah Almighty describing how He created things on earth and in the Universe.  What's most amazing is that all of these scientific statements and notions had been proven to be in perfect agreement with science and our modern-day scientific discoveries.  Allah Almighty made the Noble Quran be Prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) Everlasting Divine Miracle and proof for Prophethood.  The Holy Book certainly stood the test of time 1,500 years ago with Its Claims, Prophecies and Miraculous language eloquence, and it does again and again in our day today with Its overwhelming agreement with science and discoveries that were not known to man 1,500 years ago.

    Allah Almighty Said: "We will show them Our signs in the Universe and inside their selves, until it will become quite clear to them that it is the truth. Is it not sufficient as regards your Lord that He is a witness over all things?  (The Noble Quran, 41:53)"

    Allah Almighty's Divine Claim about all of the creations that He Created on earth and in similar planets reproducing communities of pairs had been indisputably confirmed by Science.  All of the uncertainties, and the unconfirmed speculations, statements and theories that some scientists put forth, perhaps for gain of popularity, status and money by some of them, can not be used to disprove Islam.  Again and again, we continue to see Islam being proven to be in perfect agreement and harmony with confirmed and indisputable Scientific facts and discoveries.  This should not come as a surprise, because this is what we would expect from the True and Living Words of Allah Almighty, the Sovereign LORD and GOD of the Universe.

    Indeed, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty Alone for making the Noble Quran and the Divine Inspirations that He Sent to Prophet Muhammad be the Perfect and Everlasting Miracle, for us humans, out of all of His Divine Miracles!  And may Allah Almighty send His Peace, Mercy and Blessings upon our Beloved and Blessed Prophet, Teacher and Role Model, Muhammad.  Ameen.
