ٱللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ مَا تَحْمِلُ كُلُّ أُنثَىٰ وَمَا تَغِيضُ ٱلْأَرْحَامُ وَمَا تَزْدَادُ وَكُلُّ شَىْءٍ عِندَهُۥ بِمِقْدَارٍ 8

  عَٰلِمُ ٱلْغَيْبِ وَٱلشَّهَٰدَةِ ٱلْكَبِيرُ ٱلْمُتَعَالِ 9

8.  Allah knoweth that which every female beareth and that which the wombs absorb and that which they grow. And everything with Him is measured.

Thoughts of the mankind do never stop at natural place until they acquire the correct knowledge about Allah Almighty, His Epithets and His names. The people who confute the Messenger-hood, actually they do not have sound knowledge of their Lord. As He is a Creator, just like that; He is a Guide too. It depends upon Him to show the Right Path to His creature (particularly mankind). For this purpose, existence of Angels, Messengers (peace be upon them) and Heavenly Books is necessary.


It is commanded: Allah Almighty knows all such things which you do not know. He knows that whether the child in the womb of mother is masculine or feminine, whether that is complete or incomplete, whether that is beautiful or ugly, whether that is one or those are more than one, whether that would be born on maturity or post/premature, whether that would be live or dead?


He preserves all things in all conditions according to His measurement and competency. He is Aware of all hidden and open matters. And He is the Greatest, the Highest and the Exalted.
