1-  Allah Almighty's Divine Claims:

The Noble Quran is filled with scientific statements and notions.  These are statements of Allah Almighty describing how He created things on earth and in the Universe.  What's most amazing is that all of these scientific statements and notions had been proven to be in perfect agreement with science and our modern-day scientific discoveries.  Allah Almighty made the Noble Quran be Prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) Everlasting Divine Miracle and proof for Prophethood.  The Holy Book certainly stood the test of time 1,500 years ago with Its Claims, Prophecies and Miraculous language eloquence, and it does again and again in our day today with Its overwhelming agreement with science and discoveries that were not known to man 1,500 years ago.

Allah Almighty in Noble Verse 16:66 Said that the cattle's milk is formed from its blood and FARTH فرث : 

Noble Verse(s) 16:66
Arabic (from right to left):

16:66 وان لكم في الانعام لعبرة نسقيكم مما في بطونه من بين فرث ودم لبنا خالصا سائغا للشاربين

Palmer:

[016:066] Verily, ye have in cattle a lesson; we give you to drink from that which is in their bellies, betwixt chyme and blood,- pure milk,- easy to swallow for those who drink.

Khalifa: (why is he here?)

[016:066] And in the livestock there is a lesson for you: we provide you with a drink from their bellies. From the midst of digested food and blood, you get pure milk, delicious for the drinkers.

Notice the following four key Arabic words:

1-  بين which means  "between"

2-  فرث which means "dissolved food" as we will clearly see below. 

3-  و which means "and".  

4-  دم which means "blood".

  

(a)-  Analysis on what chyme is:

We've clearly seen from the English translations, above, "chyme" is one of the meanings of the Arabic word فرث.  So what is chyme?

From http://library.thinkquest.org/28807/data/dig3.htm:

Digestion from mouth to stomach

Digestion begins in the mouth. Chewing is very important to good digestion for two reasons. When chewed food is ground into fine particles, the digestive juices can react more easily. As the food is chewed, it is moistened and mixed with saliva, which contains the enzyme ptyalin. Ptyalin changes some of the starches in the food to sugar.

After the food is swallowed, it passes through the oesophagus into the stomach. In the stomach it is thoroughly mixed with a digestive juice by a vigorous, to-and-fro churning motion. This motion is caused by contractions of strong muscles in the stomach walls.

The digestive juice in the stomach is called gastric juice. It contains hydrochloric acid and the enzyme pepsin. This juice begins the digestion of protein foods such as meat, eggs, and milk. Starches, sugars, and fats are not digested by the gastric juice. After a meal, some food remains in the stomach for two to five hours. But liquids and small particles begin to empty almost immediately. Food that has been churned, partly digested, and changed to a thick liquid is called chyme. Chyme passes from the stomach into the small intestine.


 

  

(b)-  The Translations and Detailed Analysis on the Arabic word فرث:

1-  In Dr. Zaghloul Al-Naggar's (one of the world's top geologists) web site, we read the following:

(Arabic is read from right to left)

ثانيا‏ :‏ تكون اللبن من بين فرث ودم في ضروع الأنعام :‏
يتكون اللبن أساسا من البروتينات‏ ,‏ والكربوهيدرات‏ ,‏ والدهون‏ ,‏ والعديد من العناصر‏ ,‏ والفيتامينات‏ ,‏ والماء‏ .‏ وكل ذلك يستمد من غذاء الحيوان وشرابه ومن دمه والذي وصفته هذه الآية الكريمة بقول الحق‏ (تبارك وتعالى‏) :‏ من بين فرث ودم‏ ,‏ والفرث هو الأشياء المأكولة والمنهضمة بعض الانهضام في الكرش‏ ,‏ ولذا يطلق عليه أحيانا ثقل الكرش‏ ,‏ فإذا خرجت من الكرش سميت روثا ‏ .‏

(http://www.elnaggarzr.com/index.php?l=ar&id=368&p=2&cat=384)


My translation:

Second: The formation of milk from between FARTH and blood inside the cattle:

Milk is essentially formed from proteins, carbohydrates, fat, and many other elements, and vitamins and water.  And all of this is extracted from the animal's nutrition (food), drink and blood, which this Noble Verse has described through Allah Almighty's Statement: "from between FARTH فرث and blood."  And the FARTH is the substances that are eaten and are not completely digested in the gut, and because of that it (the farth) is sometimes also called the gut's load (food), and when it is extracted from the gut it is called ROUTH روث.

(End of translation)

So when Allah Almighty Said that milk is formed from the PROCESSED FARTH (food or gut's load) and the blood, He, the Almighty, basically Said that the substance of milk is essentially created from the processed or dissolved substances that come from the GUT'S LOAD or FARTH (which is what we humans call today proteins, vitamins, sugars, minerals and so on...) and BLOOD.

  

2-  Google's Online Arabic-English dictionary contradiction:

  • Google erroneously translated فرث as dung [1].  But when we look up dung, it translates it as روث only [2]. 
  •   

    3-  From the Encyclopedic 10-Book Lisan Al-Arab [2] Dictionary:

    الفَرْثُ: السِّرْجينُ، ما دام في الكَرِشِ، والجمع فُرُوثٌ. ابن سيده: الفَرْثُ السِّرْقِينُ، والفَرْثُ والفُراثة: سِرْقِينُ الكَرشِ.
    وفَرَثْتُها
    عنه أَفْرُثُها فَرْثاً، وأَفْرَثْتُها، وفَرَّثْتُها، كذلك، وفَرَثَ الحُبُّ كَبِدَه، وأَفْرثَها، وفَرَّثَها: فَتَّتَها.
    وفَرَثْتُ كَبِدَه، أَفْرِثُها فَرْثاً، وفَرَّثْتُها تَفْريثاً إِذا ضَرَبْتَه حتى تَنْفَرِثَ كَبِدُه؛ وفي الصحاح: إِذا ضَرَبتَه وهو حَيٌّ، فانْفَرَثَتْ كَبِدُه أَي انْتَثرتْ.
    وفي حديث أُم كُلْثوم، بنتِ عليٍّ، قالت لأَهل الكوفة: أَتدرون أَيَّ كَبِدٍ فَرَثْتم لرسول الله، صلى الله عليه وسلم؟ الفَرْثُ: تَفْتيت الكَبِد بالغم والأَذى.

    My Translation:

    The FARTH is the food being digested (al-sirjeen) as long as it is still in the gut.  It's plural is FUROOTH.  Ibn Sydah said: the FARTH means al-sirqeen.  The FARTH is also al-furatha, which means the gut's sirqeen (the food being dissolved/processed in the gut).
    ........
    وفَرَّثَها: فَتَّتَها means to FARTH something is to dissolve it.
    ........

    And in Um Kalthoom's Hadith (the grand daughter of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him), the daughter of Ali, she said to the people of Kufah: Do you know which liver you caused to FARTH of the Prophet of Allah, peace be upon him? (this is metaphoric, because the Prophet was already dead.  She was referring to the injustice that these people were doing to the Prophet's immediate family).  The FARTH: Dissolving (the liver of the Prophet by the injustice done to his family).

    (End of translation)

    Furthermore, فتت (fattah) in Arabic, which is what فَتَّتَها (to dissolve it), above, is derived from, means:

  • فَتَّ الشيءَ يَفُتُّه فَتّاً، وفَتَّتَه: دَقَّه.

    Fattah something is to break it down into small pieces.  And fattatahu وفَتَّتَه  means دَقَّه to pound it or to turn it into powder (From me, Osama Abdallah: This is similar to pounding wheat into flour دقُّ القمح).

  •   

    (c)-  So what do we see?

    We see the English translations of Noble Verse 16:66, above, translating فرث as "chyme" and "digested food".  We also saw from the encyclopedic 10-Book Lisan Al-Arab Dictionary that to فرث something means to dissolve it.  And we've also seen from Dr. Zaghloul Al-Naggar's analysis that:

    1-  فرث means dissolved or digested food.

    2-  روث means dung.

    I've also pointed out Google's online Arabic-English dictionary's error and contradiction in it's translations of  فرث and روث

      

      

    2-  Blood, protein, calcium, vitamins, sugars and the many other minerals - the Scientific Notion and Miracle!

    Blood here is the key word in Noble Verse 16:66, because our modern-day scientific terms (calcium, vitamins, protein, and so on) were not known to man 1,500 years ago.  That is why Allah Almighty summed them all up in one lone Notion that was only mentioned once in the entire Noble Quran, which is the word FARTH.  That is indeed a Miraculous Notion because the Noble Word, FARTH, has indeed perfectly described all of the protein, vitamins, sugars, all of other substances that we know of today that are contained in milk.

      

    Red blood creating white milk?!

    Of course, blood inside our bodies isn't red and neither did Allah Almighty say it is red, but to man 1,500 years ago, it was red, and the fact that Allah Almighty mentioned (red) blood - that man visually sees in animals - to be combined with the substances of FARTH, further demonstrates that we have indeed an indisputable Scientific Notion and Miracle in the Noble Verse 16:66, because for man to claim that red blood is part of white milk's ingredients was most probably perceived as a very crazy or absurd statement, to man, 1,500 years ago.  But yet, it is scientifically true as we clearly see below.  This is why Allah Almighty told the Arabs that Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, was not crazy:

    Noble Verse(s) 15:6

    [015:006] They say: "O thou to whom the Message is being revealed! truly thou art mad (or possessed)!

    Arabic (from right to left):

    52:29 فذكر فما انت بنعمة ربك بكاهن ولامجنون

    Noble Verse(s) 68:51
    Yusuf Ali:

    [068:051] And the Unbelievers would almost trip thee up with their eyes when they hear the Message; and they say: "Surely he is possessed!"

    Arabic (from right to left):

    68:51 وان يكاد الذين كفروا ليزلقونك بابصارهم لما سمعوا الذكر ويقولون انه لمجنون

      

    Noble Verse(s) 81:22
    Yusuf Ali:

    [081:022] And (O people!) your companion is not one possessed;

    Arabic (from right to left):

    81:22 وماصاحبكم بمجنون

    All Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty Alone!  Let us now see how science describes the formation of milk, and whether or not the blood and FARTH (فرث) that Allah Almighty mentioned are indeed confirmed by science.

      

      

    3-  The Scientific Proofs:

    The following articles clearly and indisputably confirm Allah Almighty's Divine Claim in Noble Verse 16:66.

      

    Article #1:

    "Milk Biosynthesis

    Milk is synthesized in the mammary gland. Within the mammary gland is the milk producing unit, the alveolus. It contains a single layer of epithelial secretory cells surrounding a central storage area called the lumen, which is connected to a duct system. The secretory cells are, in turn, surrounded by a layer of myoepithelial cells and blood capillaries.


    [image]Udder, Alveolus, Secretory Cell: 26 KB

    The raw materials for milk production are transported via the bloodstream to the secretory cells. It takes 400-800 L of blood to deliver components for 1 L of milk.

    The milk components are synthesized within the cells, mainly by the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and its attached ribosomes. The energy for the ER is supplied by the mitochondria. The components are then passed along to the Golgi apparatus, which is responsible for their eventual movement out of the cell in the form of vesicles. Both vesicles containing aqueous non-fat components, as well as liquid droplets (synthesized by the ER) must pass through the cytoplasm and the apical plasma membrane to be deposited in the lumen. It is thought that the milk fat globule membrane is comprised of the apical plasma membrane of the secretory cell.

    Milking stimuli, such as a sucking calf, a warm wash cloth, the regime of parlour etc., causes the release of a hormone called oxytocin. Oxytocin is relased from the pituitary gland, below the brain, to begin the process of milk let-down. As a result of this hormone stimulation, the muscles begin to compress the alveoli, causing a pressure in the udder known as letdown reflex, and the milk components stored in the lumen are released into the duct system. The milk is forced down into the teat cistern from which it is milked. The let-down reflex fades as the oxytocin is degraded, within 4-7 minutes. It is very difficult to milk after this time." (Source)

      

    Article #2:

    "The carbohydrate lactose gives milk its sweet taste and contributes about 40% of whole cow milk's calories. Lactose is a composite of two simple sugars, glucose and galactose. In nature, lactose is found only in milk and a small number of plants (McGee 17). Other components found in raw cow milk are living white blood cells, mammary-gland cells, various bacteria, and a large number of active enzymes (McGee 16).

    "White blood cells in Milk- Milk contains varying levels of white blood cells, depending upon the health of the source animals;....

    "No study has ever conclusively demonstrated that the levels of white blood cells found in normal milk actually pose any health risk to normal individuals. The concept of pus in one's milk is somewhat reviling, but evidence for an impact on health is not existent....

    "In addition, the cows frequently contract an udder infection known as mastitis, partly responsible for the aforementioned prevalence of blood cells in dairy products." (Source)

    As we clearly and indisputably see in the above scientific articles, the formation of milk from FARTH and blood is clearly confirmed!  Indeed, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty alone!

         

    It's just quite amazing!
     
    It is truly quite amazing that Allah Almighty in the Noble Quran Said these precise words through the tongue of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, that no ordinary person would've thought about.  I mean who would've been able to come up with such sentences and words 1,500 years ago to describe the formation of milk from red blood and processed food?  Who on earth would've thought about that??
     
    The answer is simple.  The Prophet didn't think about anything.  He only spoke what was sent down to him from Divine Truth and Revelations!  Allah Almighty Said:

    "We will soon show them Our signs in the Universe and INSIDE THEIR SELVES, until it will become quite clear to them that it is the truth. Is it not sufficient as regards your Lord that He is a witness over all things?  (The Noble Quran, 41:53)"

    Indeed, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty alone for making the Noble Quran be the Perfect and Everlasting Miracle, for us humans, out of all of His Divine Miracles!  And may Allah Almighty send His Peace, Mercy and Blessings upon our Beloved and Blessed Prophet, Teacher and Role Model, Muhammad.  Ameen.

      

      

    4-  Conclusion:

    Again, the Noble Quran is filled with scientific statements and notions.  These are statements of Allah Almighty describing how He created things on earth and in the Universe.  What's most amazing is that all of these scientific statements and notions had been proven to be in perfect agreement with science and our modern-day scientific discoveries.  Allah Almighty made the Noble Quran be Prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) Everlasting Divine Miracle and proof for Prophethood.  The Holy Book certainly stood the test of time 1,500 years ago with Its Claims, Prophecies and Miraculous language eloquence, and it does again and again in our day today with Its overwhelming agreement with science and discoveries that were not known to man 1,500 years ago.

    Allah Almighty's miraculous claim and notion regarding milk being formed from processed FARTH (food or gut load) and blood is indeed confirmed by science.  Neither was the knowledge regarding the contents of FARTH known to man, nor did man know that blood, which was visually known TO BE RED to man 1,500 years ago, would form WHITE MILK.

    Indeed, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty alone for making the Noble Quran be the Perfect and Everlasting Miracle, for us humans, out of all of His Divine Miracles!  And may Allah Almighty send His Peace, Mercy and Blessings upon our Beloved and Blessed Prophet, Teacher and Role Model, Muhammad.  Ameen.

    The S-shaped moon orbit!

    In another Noble Verse, Allah Almighty described the shape of the moon's entire orbit around the earth as a shape of an old and dried-out date tree's branch, also scientifically known and confirmed today as S-shaped.  The shape of the old and dried-out branch of a date tree does resemble the letter "S".  I provided images in the article that prove this.

    Please visit: The moon's S-shaped orbit around earth is shaped like a branch of a date tree, mentioned in the Noble Quran and confirmed by Science!

     

    The egg-shaped earth's orbit!

    In another Noble Verse, Allah Almighty described the shape of the earth's orbit around the sun as egg-shaped which had also been confirmed by science.

    Please visit: If the Noble Quran says the earth is "egg-shaped" through a Notion, then why couldn't Prophet Muhammad just say it clear in plain Arabic? with detailed proofs demonstrating the miracle of the Word/Notion "dahaha".
