According to the claim it is stated in the 7th verse of Tarik Surah that the sperm comes from between the ribs and backbone and that this statement contradicts with science. Because it is scientifically known that sperm is produced in testicles. Let us check the relevant verses first and then discuss the matter. The verses in Tarik Surah are as follows:
The human must know from what he was created. He was created from a liquid thrown out. He comes from between the ribs and backbone. For sure Allah is able to recreate him. (Tarık Surah, 5-8)
In the 5th verse Allah asks why the human was created. In the 6th verse he says that the human is created from a liquid thrown out of the body. In the 7th verse he says that it comes from between the ribs and backbone. Although some claim that the sperm is meant in the 7th verse, in fact it is the human being that is meant. So the place defined as between the ribs and the backbone is the place where the baby is formed in the abdomen of a mother. In the next verse it is clear that the human is mentioned. If you review the 8th verse carefully the term “is able to recreate him” is about the fact that the human will be recreated after death. So the term ‘’him’’ here is the human. So the ‘’he’’ in the 7th verse is also the human being.
Some thought that the sperm was underlined in the 7th verse and interpreted it accordingly.
This fact seems like contradicting with the scientific data of today’s world. But we can understand that the human being comes out from between the ribs and backbone when all verses are reviewed carefully. (The defined area here should be reviewed from up to down. When considering the place between the backbone and ribs, that are is the abdominal cavity that lays between those two points from up to down) the area where the baby is formed in the abdomen of the mother. So this verse does not contradict with science.
But we would like to share with you the opinion of those who understand that it is the ‘’sperm’’ getting out: ‘’the sperm is formed in testicles as you know. The testicles are developed from the Mesonephroses. The Mesonephroses are at the right and left sides of the baby in the mother’s abdomen between the ribs and backbone. The Mesonehproses are turned into testicles before the baby is born and they get down to the scrotum from the channel called inguinal channel. Even in some rare cases some babies are born without having their testicles come down. In brief, the testicles that produce the sperm are formed between the ribs and backbone in the first phase and then come down.’’
