The Story of Creation (18 - D): Prophets Ibrahim and Lot, The Dead Sea, Destruction of Sodom …

In previous parts we estimated the time when our father Adam had descended to Earth, then the time when Prophets Noah, Hud and Saleh (PBUT) were sent to their people to warn them not to follow Satan and guide them to the right path.

Coming to the second group of prophets: Ibrahim, Lot, Mosses, Jesus (PBUT).

Ibrahim and Lot (PBUT):

Ibrahim and Lot were at the same time, they lived in North Iraq then moved to Palestine after they called their people but they refused to respond to them, so Ibrahim moved with his family and settled in "Al-khalil" city (Hebron) and Lot moved to Sodom villages which are located now beneath the Dead Sea between Jordon and Palestine.

The emigration of Ibrahim is mentioned in the following verses:

فَمَا كَانَ جَوَابَ قَوْمِهِ إِلاَّ أَن قَالُوا اقْتُلُوهُ أَوْ حَرِّقُوهُ فَأَنجَاهُ اللَّهُ مِنَ النَّارِ إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يُؤْمِنُونَ 24 وَقَالَ إِنَّمَا اتَّخَذْتُم مِّن دُونِ اللَّهِ أَوْثَانًا مَّوَدَّةَ بَيْنِكُمْ فِي الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا ثُمَّ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ يَكْفُرُ بَعْضُكُم بِبَعْضٍ وَيَلْعَنُ بَعْضُكُم بَعْضًا وَمَأْوَاكُمُ النَّارُ وَمَا لَكُم مِّن نَّاصِرِينَ 25 فَآمَنَ لَهُ لُوطٌ وَقَالَ إِنِّي مُهَاجِرٌ إِلَى رَبِّي إِنَّهُ هُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيمُ 26

So nothing was the answer of Ibrahîm's (Abraham) people except that they said: "Kill him or burn him." Then Allâh saved him from the fire. Verily, in this are indeed signs for a people who believe (24) And [Ibrâhim (Abraham)] said: "You have taken (for worship) idols instead of Allâh, The love between you is only in the life of this world, but on the Day of Resurrection, you shall disown each other, and curse each other, and your abode will be the Fire, and you shall have no helper." (25) So Lut (Lot) believed in him [Ibrâhim's (Abraham) Message of Islâmic Monotheism]. He [Ibrâhim (Abraham)] said: "I will emigrate for the sake of my Lord. Verily, He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise." (29:24-26)

The Story of Creation (18 - C): The Carved mountains of the Desert, Prophet Saleh and People of Thamoud…

A second group descended from Noah children were Thamoud, or the people of Prophet Saleh (PBUH), let's review the verses from Quran that describe them and their living during the old times.

1- Being Thamod People after A'd:

In the following verse, the Prophet Saleh remind his people that they came after A'd and how they built their palaces (houses) in plains and carved the mountains:

وَاذْكُرُواْ إِذْ جَعَلَكُمْ خُلَفَاء مِن بَعْدِ عَادٍ وَبَوَّأَكُمْ فِي الأَرْضِ تَتَّخِذُونَ مِن سُهُولِهَا قُصُورًا وَتَنْحِتُونَ الْجِبَالَ بُيُوتًا فَاذْكُرُواْ آلاء اللَّهِ وَلاَ تَعْثَوْا فِي الأَرْضِ مُفْسِدِينَ  (7: 74)

"And remember when He made you successors after 'Ad (people) and gave you habitations in the land, you build for yourselves palaces in plains, and carve out homes in the mountains. So remember the graces (bestowed upon you) from Allâh, and do not go about making mischief on the earth." (74)

وَثَمُودَ الَّذِينَ جَابُوا الصَّخْرَ بِالْوَادِ (89: 9)

And (with) Thamûd (people), who hewed out rocks in the valley (to make dwellings)? (9)

The Story of Creation (18 - B): Eram, The Lost city of Sand, Prophet Hud and People of A'd…

The early generations descended from Noah sons moved away from Ark's location in Southern Turkey, and  started to settle around the globe, but the main group who were mentioned in Quran and lived after Noah times, were people of A'd. They lived in southern part of Arabia where it was a wonderful place full of gardens, lakes and rivers.

But those people diverted again from worshiping God, and they were proud and arrogant because of their wealth and power that ALLAH gave to them:
فَأَمَّا عَادٌ فَاسْتَكْبَرُوا فِي الأَرْضِ بِغَيْرِ الْحَقِّ وَقَالُوا مَنْ أَشَدُّ مِنَّا قُوَّةً أَوَلَمْ يَرَوْا أَنَّ اللَّهَ الَّذِي خَلَقَهُمْ هُوَ أَشَدُّ مِنْهُمْ قُوَّةً وَكَانُوا بِآيَاتِنَا يَجْحَدُونَ

As for 'Ad, they were arrogant in the land without right, and they said: "Who is mightier than us in strength?" See they not that Allâh, Who created them was mightier in strength than them. And they used to deny Our Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, revelations)! (24:15)

Not only that, but it seems that their cities and lands were huge and wide too:

أَوَلَمْ يَسِيرُوا فِي الأَرْضِ فَيَنظُرُوا كَيْفَ كَانَ عَاقِبَةُ الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْ كَانُوا أَشَدَّ مِنْهُمْ قُوَّةً وَأَثَارُوا الأَرْضَ وَعَمَرُوهَا أَكْثَرَ مِمَّا عَمَرُوهَا وَجَاءَتْهُمْ رُسُلُهُم بِالْبَيِّنَاتِ فَمَا كَانَ اللَّهُ لِيَظْلِمَهُمْ وَلَكِن كَانُوا أَنفُسَهُمْ يَظْلِمُونَ

Do they not travel in the land, and see what was the end of those before them? They were superior to them in strength, and they tilled the earth and populated it in greater numbers than these (pagans) have done, and there came to them their Messengers with clear proofs. Surely, Allâh wronged them not, but they used to wrong themselves. (30:9)

Let's review the following description of A'd story from Quran verses..

The Story of Creation (18 - A): Tuba Volcanic Eruption and Noah Flood, Noah's Ark Remains...

It's well known that Atheists deny the existence of prophets and messengers of God, if not all then most of them, whenever they hear their stories they reply exactly as described in the holy Quran in the following verse:

ومنهم من يستمع اليك وجعلنا على قلوبهم اكنة ان يفقهوه وفي اذانهم وقرا وان يروا كل اية لا يؤمنوا بها حتى اذا جاؤوك يجادلونك يقول الذين كفروا ان هذا الا اساطير الاولين

There are those among them who (apparently) listen to you, but We have put coverings on their hearts, so that they do not understand, and heaviness in their ears. If they were to see all the signs, they would still not believe in them, so much so that, when they come to quarrel with you, the disbelievers say, “It is nothing but tales of the ancients.” [6:25]

But, how to convince the Atheists that prophets were real and existed on Earth once, and their stories are not tales of the Ancients? 

Fortunately, the answer is easy and it's because of ALLAH wisdom he gave it to us in his holy book, each time he mentions a story of his main prophets he mentions a great natural or humans happening (or phenomenon) that can be tracked or seen till our days, so by proving that such event happened once then during its time there was a prophet too, exactly as ALLAH said.

So starting with Noah (PBUH), the main event was the flood, but how we can prove it scientifically?

Before talking about Noah story in Quran, let's review the following facts about Ice age, Glacial flood, and Toba super-eruption in short.

The Story of Creation (17-C): Evolution and Spreading of Early Humans after Adam…


1-     DNA deterioration (Aging, Graying)
2-     Humans Genetics Drifting
3-     “Out of Africa” vs. “Out-of-Arabia” Theory?
4-     Tribes and Nations
5-     Arabia Nature during Prehistory Times

Before start talking about the Prophets, lets mention some important facts about Humans development after Adam mentioned in the holy Quran and compare them with Science recent findings.

1- DNA deterioration (Aging, Graying)

Following to Part 17 (Adam & Eve), we mentioned that Humans creation were huge in size and lived for long age, that can reach 1000 of years, and Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) mentioned in one of his Hadiths that Prophet Ibrahim (PBUH) was the first one to see the gray hair over his head, and this indication that ageing was not common in Early humans but appeared in later generations. But can we prove this scientifically? Let’s see..


Quoted from - Aging and Death May be a Product of Evolution [1]:

The Story of Creation (17 - B): Creation of Eve and the Early Humans on Earth..

Continued from Part 17-A, Creation of Adam and Human Evolution…


1- Creation of Eve
2- Descending on Earth
3- First Generation of Humans on Earth
4- Physical Attributes of Early Humans
5- Main question of “Journey of Man”?
6- Human’s Basic Knowledge
7- Ice Age

1- Creation of Eve (Hawwa)

Why “Eve” was created from a bone?

Before answering this question, let’s review some scientific facts on adult stem cells and cloning.


Quoted from Wikipedia - Stem cells

Stem cells are biological cells found in all multicellular organisms that can divide (through mitosis) and differentiate into diverse specialized cell types and can self-renew to produce more stem cells. In mammals, there are two broad types of stem cells: embryonic stem cells, which are isolated from the inner cell mass of blastocysts, and adult stem cells, which are found in various tissues. In adult organisms, stem cells and progenitor cells act as a repair system for the body, replenishing adult tissues. 

Stem cells can be taken from a variety of sources, including umbilical cord blood and bone marrow. Embryonic cell lines and autologous embryonic stem cells generated through therapeutic cloning have also been proposed as promising candidates for future therapies. [1]

Quoted from: Adult Stem Cells

You can think of adult stem cells as our built-in repair kits, regenerating cells damaged by disease, injury and everyday wear and tear. These undifferentiated cells reside among other differentiated cells in a tissue or organ; they divide and become specialized to repair or replace the surrounding differentiated cells. A common example of adult stem cells is hemopoietic stem cells, which are found in red bone marrow. These stem cells differentiate into various blood cells (red blood cells, lymphocytes, platelets). For example, red blood cells are not capable of reproducing and survive for about 28 days. To replace worn-out red blood cells, hemopoietic stem cells in the bone marrow divide and differentiate into new red blood cells. [2]

The Story of Creation (17 - A): Adam Creation and Human Evolution, in Holy Quran and Science..


1-    Creation before Adam
2-    When was he created and where?
3-    How was he created?
4-    What did he look like?
5-    Adam's Knowledge
6-    Creation of Eve
7-    Descending to Earth
8-    Physical Evolution
9-    Adam’s Age
10- Earth during Adam’s times
11- Evolution after Adam

Scientific Proof
1-    Creation before Humans
2-    Belong to one Father “Adam”
3-    Was Adam Created or Evolved?

1-    Creation before Adam


There are indications in the Holy Quran, that we “Humans” are not the first creation to be on Earth, such as:

1- The following verse is talking about creation who were before us, ALLAH says:

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ اعْبُدُواْ رَبَّكُمُ الَّذِي خَلَقَكُمْ وَالَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ

O people, worship your Lord who created you and those before you, so that you may become God-fearing (2:21)

The speech is talking to people “Mankind” to worship God who created us and those who were before us !!

Quote from: The uterus

The uterus is made up of three layers:
The inner layer is the endometrium. This is the inside mucus lining of the uterus where the placenta attaches.

The middle layer is made of different types of muscles, collectively called the myometrium. During pregnancy these muscle cells grow ten times in length and three times in width. Some of these muscles run lengthwise from the cervix, over the top of the uterus (also called the fundus) back down to the cervix on the other side. They contract and shorten during labour, pulling up the cervix and pushing your baby down the birth canal.

The outer layer is the perimetrium. A fine outer layer separating the uterus from the intestines. [1]

Quoted from: Adrenal Glands:

In mammals, the adrenal glands (also known as suprarenal glands) are endocrine glands that sit atop the kidneys; in humans, the right suprarenal gland is triangular shaped, while the left suprarenal gland is semilunar shaped. They are chiefly responsible for releasing hormones in response to stress through the synthesis of corticosteroids such as cortisol and catecholamines such as epinephrine. The adrenal glands affect kidney function through the secretion of aldosterone, a hormone involved in regulating the osmolarity of blood plasma. [1]

1.    Creation Miracles

Too many Atheists insist on asking for a miracle so they might believe, although it’s in God’s hands only so they believe, but there is a daily miracle that happens almost billions of times every day in front of us without noticing.

This miracle is mentioned in the following verse:

ان الله فالق الحب والنوى يخرج الحي من الميت ومخرج الميت من الحي ذلكم الله فانى تؤفكون

Verily! It is Allâh Who causes the seed-grain and the fruit-stone (like date-stone) to split and sprout. He brings forth the living from the dead, and it is He Who brings forth the dead from the living. Such is Allâh, then how are you deluded away from the truth? (6:95)

As example of this miracle, is the Chicken which is the living thing delivering the Egg, which is the dead thing, and then the Egg break into a little chick which is the living thing again. Knowing the Egg is a small container of Carbohydrates, Fat, Protein, water, Vitamins and Minerals. [1]

The Story of Creation (15 - B) – Cattle Division, Creation, Colors, Benefits, Milk Production in Holy Quran…

3.    Cattle Domestication
4.    Cattle Coloring
5.    Cattle for Riding
6.    Cattle Benefits
7.    Camel Creation
8.    Cattle Milking

1.    Ungulate (Mammals  Division)


Quoted from Wikipedia - Ungulate

Perissodactyla and Artiodactyla comprise the largest portion of ungulates, and also include the majority of large land mammals. These two groups first appeared during the late Paleocene and early Eocene (about 54 million years ago), rapidly spreading to a wide variety of species on numerous continents, and have developed in parallel since that time.[1]

Quoted from: Exploring Family Tree - Uncovering ungulate taxonomy

All ungulates are mammals (Class Mammalia) - a group of warm-blooded (endothermic) animals with backbones. Taxonomically, mammals are animals (Kingdom Animalia) and belong to the Phylum Chordata, Subphylum Vertebrata. Mammals can be distinguished from other animals by the presence of milk-producing skin glands - these mammary glands, for which the Class Mammalia is named, are found in every mammal and nowhere else in the Animal Kingdom. Many other characters are used to diagnose mammals, including the presence of hair, three middle ear bones, and a four-chambered heart.

The easiest way to distinguish the two types of ungulates is to look at their feet (and hooves): Perissodactyls (generally) have an odd number of toes on each foot, while "artiodactyls" (the ungulates within Cetartiodactyla) usually possess an even number of toes on each foot. Despite the even-odd differentiation, there are exceptions to the rule: for instance, both tapirs (Perissodactyla: Tapiridae) and some peccaries (Cetartiodactyla: Tayassuidae) have four toes (and hooves) on their front feet, and three on the rear.

5.    Animal Migration
6.    Animal Navigation
7.    Animal Ecosystem
8.    Animal Sleeping
9.    Forbidden Animals (Pork)

1.    Animal Evolution


Quoted from: Plant and Animal Evolution

All animals and plants are classified as multicellular eukaryotes: their bodies are made up of large numbers of cells, and microscopic inspection of these cells reveals that they contain a nucleus and a number of other organelles. Compared to prokaryotic organisms such as bacteria, plants and animals have a relatively recent evolutionary origin.

Like the plants, animals evolved in the sea. And that is where they remained for at least 600 million years. This is because, in the absence of a protective ozone layer, the land was bathed in lethal levels of UV radiation. Once photosynthesis had raised atmospheric oxygen levels high enough, the ozone layer formed, meaning that it was then possible for living things to venture onto the land.

Recently many scientists have begun to question whether the Cambrian explosion was a real event, or a reflection of the patchiness of this ancient fossil record. Genetic data suggest that multicellular animals evolved around 1000 million years ago; this is supported by fossil embryos from rocks in China that date back 600 million years. These embryos are more complex than those of simple organisms such as sponges and jellyfish, which suggests that multicellular animals must have evolved much further back in time. In addition, trilobites were a very diverse group even early in the Cambrian, and some scientists suggest that this indicates that the arthropod group must have had a much earlier evolutionary origin. [1]


There are 3 verses that indicate to Animal Evolution in the Holy Quran:
