Description from the publisher:
Surah 23, Verses 12-14: "We created man from the quintessence of mud. Thereafter, We cause him to remain as a drop of sperm in a firm lodging (i.e. the womb). Thereafter We fashioned the sperm into something that clings (Alakah), which We fashioned into a chewed lump (Modgha). The chewed lump is fashioned into bones which are then covered with flesh. Then We nurse him unto another act of creation. Blessed is God, the best of artisans."
