UNICELLULAR ANIMALS

We know Quran says everything is made in pair. But what about unicellular animals? There is no male in them. Only female. Please help me remove my confusion.

Assalam alaikum

There is no female unicellular organism.



    "And from everything We have created pairs that you may be mindful."         Surat Adh-Dhāriyāt (51) Ayah 49


In the name of Allah and peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah ...

In their trial to find an "error" in quran, Islam haters argued that this ayah is false due to asexual reproduction of some organisms !!

First of all we need to read this article to understand "the concept of parity" as a universal phenomenon
http://www.defending-islam.com/page281.html

Then,  Why doesn't asexual reproduction contradict the ayah by any way ?

Clarification:
The ayah didn't say "Everything", rather it said "from/of everything ". It's an arabic expression used to mean "many/ a lot of".
Let's examine other ayahs first

1- God says in surat Annaml 27:23 :
إِنِّي وَجَدتُّ امْرَأَةً تَمْلِكُهُمْ وَأُوتِيَتْ مِن كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَلَهَا عَرْشٌ عَظِيمٌ
Sahih International
Indeed, I found [there] a woman ruling them, and she has been given of all things, and she has a great throne.
In the same surah ayah 16:
وَوَرِثَ سُلَيْمَانُ دَاوُودَ ۖ وَقَالَ يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ عُلِّمْنَا مَنطِقَ الطَّيْرِ وَأُوتِينَا مِن كُلِّ شَيْءٍ ۖ إِنَّ هَٰذَا لَهُوَ الْفَضْلُ الْمُبِينُ
Sahih International
And Solomon inherited David. He said, "O people, we have been taught the language of birds, and we have been given from all things. Indeed, this is evident bounty."

     We don't need to say that Sulayman- Peace be upon him- and the woman didn't have "every thing" but they were given "from" every thing as the woman's kingdom wasn't given to Sulayman and vise versa. It refers to those things only which are needed by the government or an empire. Otherwise it is obvious that they did not have cars or railways in those days. It means that whatever services are needed to a king or an aristocrat according to their time, they all were available to her. It is, however, obvious that those things that were not available to them, their unavailability is not in conflict with this verse.


    The same expression was used in the ayah above "و من كل شيء" "from/of every thing"

2-  In surat Alanbyaa' 21:
 Ayah 30:
وَجَعَلْنَا مِنَ الْمَاءِ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ حَيٍّ ۖ أَفَلَا يُؤْمِنُونَ
and we made from water every living thing? Then will they not believe?
 Ayah 35:
كُلُّ نَفْسٍ ذَائِقَةُ الْمَوْتِ ۗ وَنَبْلُوكُم بِالشَّرِّ وَالْخَيْرِ فِتْنَةً ۖ وَإِلَيْنَا تُرْجَعُونَ
Sahih International
Every soul will taste death. And We test you with evil and with good as trial; and to Us you will be returned.

     God didn't say in this ayah "from everything" but "every thing-every soul " and this means no exceptions !!

Conclusion:
Quran is the final testament from God. A distinct feature of the Qur’anic diction is that it encloses a vast range of meaning in a surprisingly small number of words without losing its charm and majesty in the least.
The language of the Qur’an contains all possible kinds of eloquence, metaphor, similes, comparisons, transitions, inversions etc., but at the same time it is free of any hint of verbiage like false exaggeration, hyperbolical statements and all other defects of falsehood . Human writing does not usually combine all the aspects of eloquence in one work. People have tried in vain to accommodate all these qualities. The Holy Qur’an, however, does so superlatively.

As'salamu Alaikum dear Brothers and Sisters,

This topic had been thoroughly refuted at: http://www.answering-christianity.com/of_everything_pairs_are_created.htm.

To arrive to the link, visit the main website, and click on the "Quran" Section, and then click on the Responses to all of the so-called "Errors" in the Noble Quran section, and find the article in the list.

Take care,
Osama Abdallah
