Allah knows what is in wombs.

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

 

One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Asaalamulaikum,

Dear Sir, I heard our Masjid Imam who is a Mufti, telling that Allah Subahanhu Talah has mentioned in Quran that, He has kept 5 things secret from Human Beings knowledge, one of them he mentioned was, What is in the womb of the pregnant woman, he explicitly said, whether it is boy or Girl. ( I ask apology, I dont remember Surah he mentioned)m, and another one was when it will rain.


You know, now a days science has progressed and sex detection test can accurately know the sex of an embroyo , even if there is any defromation.


Weather forecast can if not accurate but still can give us some details about rain etc.


Please comment, I am very much disturbed since I heard this.

Regards
Salman

Answer:

 

Allah knows what is in wombs

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Your Statement: .I heard our Masjid Imam who is a Mufti, telling that Allah Subahanhu Talah has mentioned in Quran that, He has kept 5 things secret from Human Beings knowledge

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 31 Surah Luqman verse 34:

34 Verily the Knowledge of the Hour is with Allah (alone). It is He Who sends down rain and He Who knows what is in the wombs. Nor does anyone know what it is that he will earn on the morrow: nor does anyone know in what land he is to die. Verily with Allah is full knowledge and He is acquainted (with all things).

 

It is obviously not an accurate statement that there are only five things which the Lord All-Knowing All-Aware has kept hidden or secret from human beings!!! The Truth is that Allah Subhanah Alone is the All-Knowing, All-Wise, and Possesses Perfect Knowledge of Absolutely Everything in existence.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 73:

73 It is He Who created the heavens and the earth in true (proportions): the day He saith "Be" Behold! it is! His Word is the Truth. His will be the dominion the Day the trumpet will be blown. He knoweth the Unseen as well as that which is open. For He is the Wise well acquainted (with all things)

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 59-60:

59 With Him are the keys of the Unseen the treasures that none knoweth but He. He knoweth whatever there is on the earth and in the sea. Not a leaf doth fall but with His knowledge: there is not a grain in the darkness (or depths) of the earth nor anything fresh or dry (green or withered) but is (inscribed) in a Record Clear.

60 It is He Who doth take your souls by night and hath knowledge of all that ye have done by day. By day doth He raise you up again; that a term appointed be fulfilled; in the end unto Him will be your return then will He show you the truth of all that ye did.

 

Your Question: ..You know, now a days science has progressed and sex detection test can accurately know the sex of an embroyo , even if there is any defromation. Weather forecast can if not accurate but still can give us some details about rain etc.

Respected brother, indeed modern science and technology have only recently developed tools that enable them to see what is developing in a mothers womb; and only after studying the formation and creation of the Creator inside the mothers womb through their tools, they are able to ascertain the sex of the unborn child or its formation/deformation..this determination of the doctors obviously is not from amongst the knowledge of the unseen, but rather their determination is from the knowledge of what is seen!!!!

 

But if a doctor or any one in creation could look at an infant and declare if, whether, and when this infants first-born will be a male or a female, or whether this infant will bear any children if and when it grows up, or what exactly will the formation/deformation of their children, etc.that then would be from the knowledge of the unseen!!!! Obviously no one in creation possesses that knowledge.such knowledge of the unseen is with Allah Subhanah Alone!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 13 Surah Raad verse 8:

8 Allah doth know what every female (womb) doth bear, by how much the wombs fall short (of their time or number), or do exceed. Every single thing is before His Sight in (due) proportion.

 

Similarly an expert in the use of weather-forecasting tools can study the formation of the existent clouds through their developed tools and predict whether or not it would rain in the coming few daysbut is there any one in creation who can predict when and where and how much exactly it will rain next year or ten years later or a hundred years later???? Obviously no one in creation possesses that knowledge.such knowledge of the unseen is with the Lord of the Worlds Alone!

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
