وَٱللَّهُ خَلَقَ كُلَّ دَآبَّةٍ مِّن مَّآءٍ فَمِنْهُم مَّن يَمْشِى عَلَىٰ بَطْنِهِۦ وَمِنْهُم مَّن يَمْشِى عَلَىٰ رِجْلَيْنِ وَمِنْهُممَّن يَمْشِى عَلَىٰٓ أَرْبَعٍ يَخْلُقُ ٱللَّهُ مَا يَشَآءُ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَىْءٍ قَدِيرٌ 45

45.  Allah hath created every animal of water. Of them is (a kind) that goeth upon its belly and (a kind) that goeth upon two legs and (a kind) that goeth upon four. Allah createth what He will. Lo! Allah is Able to do all things. 45.  Wallaahu  khalaqa  kulla  daaabbatim-mim-maaa’.  Fa-minhum-many-yamshii  ‘alaa  batnih. Wa-minhum-many-yamshii  ‘alaa  rijlayn.  Wa-minhum-many-yamshii  ‘alaaa  ‘arba’.  YakhluqUllaahu  maa  yashaaa’.  ‘InnAllaaha  ‘alaa  kulli  shay-‘in-  Qadiir.




If you have known Allaah Almighty after looking His clear Signs in the world, then you should learn more concerning Him. You should form an opinion from it that He created the Matter, which adopts different forms easily from the affect of heat, cold, dryness and moisture etc. Sometime its atoms assemble by the Divine Power of Allaah Almighty and sometime become separate. From the same, creatures of the world came into being in process of time. By collection and subtraction of the particles of the Matter, the things used to come in existence and be disfigured. Even that when the suitable time came, then the things having life; appeared and the creatures which might move in different ways, were produced.


Some of them from those creatures are such which move on their bellies as serpents, maximum creeping animals and animals of water. Some are those which walk on two legs as mankind and birds. And some of them are those which walk on four feet as the cattle and beasts of prey etc. And the Omnipotence of Allaah Almighty is not limited on this only. He can make any creature as He desire. And He can give to any animal more than four hands and feet too as He will. It becomes easy to understand this matter after observing this all that Omnipotence of Allaah Almighty is Infinite and His Power is Boundless. The mankind cannot think more than this.
