Human Senses

Hearing develops before vision.


Hearing is one of the first senses to develop in a fetus. A baby can hear its mother's voice long before it is born. Vision comes at a latter stage. This was only known recently however it was portrayed in the Quran 1400 years before it was discovered. The Quran insists that God created our hearing before our vision.

Quran 76:2
We created man from a fertilizing sperm, to test him; and We made him hearing and seeing.

٢ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَا الْإِنْسَانَ مِنْ نُطْفَةٍ أَمْشَاجٍ نَبْتَلِيهِ فَجَعَلْنَاهُ سَمِيعًا بَصِيرًا
Quran 23:78
It is He who produced for you the hearing, and the eyesight, and the feelings. But little gratitude you show.

٧٨ وَهُوَ الَّذِي أَنْشَأَ لَكُمُ السَّمْعَ وَالْأَبْصَارَ وَالْأَفْئِدَةَ ۚ قَلِيلًا مَا تَشْكُرُونَ

The Quran always refers to the "hearing" before the "seeing" which turned out to be their actual order of creation.


How could an illiterate man who lived 1400 years ago have known that hearing develops before vision?


The Quran (Koran, the book of Islam) contains scientific knowledge that could not have been known 1400 years ago. It ranges from basic arithmetics to the most advanced topics in astrophysics. You are invited to go through those miracles and judge for yourself.
