Today we know that the cell division process, meiosis, happens in 8 phases.
Meiosis is a special type of cell division in sexually-reproducing organisms used to produce the gametes, such as sperm or egg cells.

The pair of chromosomes divide in eight stages, however this is portrayed in the Quran 1400 years before it was discovered.
[Quran 39.6] He created you from one person, then made from it its mate, and brought down cattle for you. Eight pairs He creates you in the wombs of your mothers, in successive formations, in a triple darkness. Such is Allah, your Lord. His is the kingdom. There is no god but He. So what made you deviate?
"Eight pairs He creates you in the wombs of your mothers" today we know that in sexually reproducing organisms the pair of chromosomes divide in eight stages. Cattle and humans are sexually reproducing organisms and their cells divide by meiosis. No mistakes in the Quran.
How could an illiterate man who lived 1400 years ago have known about meiosis?
