Surah an-Naba' (The News ) 78 : 8
1. Lessons/Guidance/Reflections/Gems[ edit ]
In its second leg, this round touches upon various aspects of human existence. Again, this is a well established phenomenon, easily recognised by every human being. God has made the survival and continuity of mankind conditional on each of the two different sexes, male and female, playing its role in life fully. Not much knowledge is required to appreciate what this involves of comfort, pleasure and recreation. Hence the Qur’anic statement stands to be appreciated by every generation in every society according to its abilities and knowledge.
Beyond the primitive importance of this fact there is the wider scope of contemplation as man’s knowledge increases and his feelings become more refined. We may contemplate how one sperm produces a male child while another, absolutely similar to the first, produces a female one. Our contemplation, however penetrating, is bound to lead us to the inescapable conclusion that it is God’s perfect planning which gives each sperm its distinctive characteristics, so that we may eventually have a male and a female, for life to continue.

The themes of all the Surahs, from Surah 75: al-Qiyamah (The Resurrection) to Surah 79: an-Nazi’at (The Extractors), closely resemble one another and all these seem to have been revealed in the earliest period at Makkah.
