1-  Allah Almighty's Divine Claims:

The Holy Quran and Islam are 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 Said: "We will 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)"

With this said, let us what Allah Almighty Said in the Glorious Quran:

Noble Verse(s) 51:49
Yusuf Ali:

[051:049]  And of every thing We have created pairs: That ye may receive instruction.

Sher Ali:

[051:049]  And of everything have WE created pairs that you may reflect.

Shakir:

[051:049]  And of everything We have created pairs that you may be mindful.

Arabic (from right to left):

51:49 ومن كل شئ خلقنا زوجين لعلكم تذكرون

In this Noble Verse, we see Allah Almighty Declaring that of everything that He created, He Created pairs or two kinds for them.  This Noble Verse does not speak about sexual reproduction.  It clearly and indisputably Says that of every kind of creation out there, two kinds of this creation/species exist.  To us, we might think of them as males and females, but this is not always correct, for there are asexual (sexless) creations, such as the Angels, that Allah Almighty mentioned in the Glorious Quran:

"Or that We created the angels female, and they are witnesses (thereto)?  (The Noble Quran, 37:150)"

"And they make into females angels who themselves serve God. Did they witness their creation? Their evidence will be recorded, and they will be called to account!  (The Noble Quran, 43:19)"

"Those who believe not in the Hereafter, name the angels with female names (The Noble Quran, 53:27)"

  
So what does "everything" (كل شئ) then mean in Noble Verse 51:49?  If Angels are excluded, then obviously, "everything" here could not be applied to all of the Creations of Allah Almighty.  So to me, this Noble Verse is speaking about the things that are created from dust, like us humans, and the things that exist on planet earth and other similar planets.  This is further supported in the following Noble Verses:

Noble Verse(s) 21:30
Yusuf Ali:

[021:030]  Do not the Unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together (as one unit of creation), before we clove them asunder? We made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe?

Arabic (from right to left):

21:30 اولم ير الذين كفروا ان السماوات والارض كانتا رتقا ففتقناهما وجعلنا من الماء كل شئ حي افلايؤمنون

How can the Angels and the Jinns be made alive with water when they were created from light and fire respectively?

"And the Jinn race, We had created before, from the fire of a scorching wind.  (The Noble Quran, 15:27)"

"'A'isha reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: The Angels were born out of light and the Jinns were born out of the spark of fire and Adam was born as he has been defined (in the Qur'an) for you (i. e. he is fashioned out of clay).  (Translation of Sahih Muslim, Book 42: The Book Pertaining to Piety and Softening of Hearts (Kitab Al-Zuhd wa Al-Raqa'iq), Number 71:34)"

How can water and fire, as we know them, coexist harmoniously with each others?  In other words, how could the Jinns live off of our water when they were created from fire?  And how could the Angels who were created from light also live off of water as we know it?

So to me, it is clear that "everything" (كل شئ) in Noble Verse 51:49 is limited to our worldly creations; the creations that exist on earth, and any similar ones that exist elsewhere on other planets [1] [2].

  

  

2-  The Scientific Proofs:

In this section, we will see with ample proofs, and without the shadow of a doubt, that the Glorious Quran's Divine Claims remain Scientifically correct and Miraculous.  Hermaphrodite and Parthenogenesis (asexual, sexless) species are discussed further below, further proving the Glorious Quran's Miracle.

  

(a)-  Species that are created in pairs:

Obviously, the number of those species is virtually countless.  From the humans, to the plants, to the animals that we know; all of these consist of pairs (males and females) in their communities.  They are either males or females.  All of the pets that humans have, and all of the domestic farm animals, and all of the birds, reptiles, predators and preys; all of them have the pairs of males and females in their communities.  Hence, this group of species certainly testifies to the Divine Miracle of the Glorious Quran.

“And of everything We have created pairs, that you may remember (and hopefully ponder)” (Al-Quran, Adh-Dhariyat, 51:49)

This Qur’anic ayah appears in the last fifth of Surat Adh-Dhariyat, which is a Makkan Surah that contains 60 ayahs. The main topic of the Surah is the Islamic creed.

Signs of creation in Surat Adh-Dhariyat:

Surat Adh-Dhariyat reviews a number of signs of creation, from which the vast divine power of creation can be inferred and which bear witness to the fact that the One Who originally created this universe is capable of annihilating it and recreating it again (i.e. resurrecting it). The issue of resurrection was a major argument of those who disbelieved in the Day of Judgment throughout history. The following are the signs of creation that appear in the Surah:
(1) Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) swears by the winds that He employs to blow away and scatter dust and the role of that in the erosion of rocks, the leveling of the earth’s surface, the formation of the soil and the propagation of clouds; and which He employs to carry pollens and the role of that in the pollination of plants.

(2) Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) also swears by the clouds that bear the heavy weight of water vapor and which He causes to fall as rain, according to His judgment and knowledge, where He wills, in the amount that He wills, at the time that He wills, as a mercy from Him or as a punishment and chastisement.

(3) Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) also swears by the ships that easily float on the surface of the water. If it were not for the special properties that Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) gave water, the ships would not have sailed on its surface so easily and gently.

(4) Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) also swears by the angels that deliver Allah’s decrees in the universe, according to His divine orders and will. The angels carry the divine orders and execute them according to the will of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) among His creatures and within the universe, in extreme precision and discipline. Moreover, although the angles are among the transcendental things that we cannot see their effect in the universe is undeniably perceived and cannot be ignored.

(5) Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) swears by the heavens that are built according to precise laws and principles and which are full of pathways (orbits in which celestial bodies move), which are also built to precision, and whose parts are in perfect and masterful intactness and unity with one another and which have limitless variability in their density.

(6) Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) confirms that the earth contains countless obvious signs of miraculous nature that serve to demonstrate Allah’s omnipotence, power and authority, which are recognized by those whose hearts are seeking faith with certainty, as He says, “And on the earth are signs for those who have Faith with certainty”. (Al-Quran, Adh-Dhariyat, 51: 20)

(7) Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) confirms the countless miraculous signs in the creation of human beings as He says, “And signs within yourselves, can you not see?” (Al-Quran, Adh-Dhariyat, 51: 21)

(8) Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) confirms the fact that what people have been promised (i.e. the truth that Allah has promised them) and their sustenance are all decided in the heavens and descend upon them, as He says, “And in the heaven is your provision, and that which you are promised”. (Al-Quran, Adh-Dhariyat, 51: 22)

(9) Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) refers to the expansion of the universe, as He says, “With power did We construct the heaven. Verily, We are Able to expand the vastness of space thereof”. (Al-Quran, Adh-Dhariyat, 51: 47)

(10) Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) refers to the paving and leveling of the earth’s surface, as He says, “And We have spread out the earth: how excellent a Spreader are We! (And how excellent was it prepared for life!)”. (Al-Quran, Adh-Dhariyat, 51: 48)

(11) Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) emphasizes that all creations are in pairs [that complement each other], as He says, “And of everything We have created pairs, that you may remember (and hopefully ponder)”. (Al-Quran, Adh-Dhariyat, 51: 49)

Each of the above ayahs needs to be dealt with individually to be understood clearly. Since this is not possible in the scope of this article, I am therefore forced to focus the discussion on the last point of the above signs of creation; namely Allah’s (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) emphasis that all creations are in pairs [that complement each other], as He says, “And of everything We have created pairs, that you may remember (and hopefully ponder)” (Al-Quran, Adh-Dhariyat, 51: 49. Before starting, there is a need to examine the interpretations of this ayah by scholars of Qur’anic exegesis, classical and contemporary.

The interpretation of the following ayah by scholars:

“And of everything We have created pairs, that you may remember (and hopefully ponder)” (Al-Quran, Adh-Dhariyat, 51:49)

Ibn Kathir (may Allah have mercy on him) explained this ayah as follows: It means that all creatures are in pairs: heaven and earth, night and day, sun and moon, shore and sea, light and darkness, belief and disbelief, life and death, happiness and misery, paradise and hellfire, even animals and plants, and that is why Allah says, “… that you may remember (and hopefully ponder)” i.e. for you to know that the Creator is One with no partner.

The book, Tafseer Al-Jalalain (may Allah have mercy on its authors), explains that, “And of everything” relates to the creation; “We have created pairs” two kinds like male and female, heaven and earth, sun and moon, valley and mountain, summer and winter, sweet and sour, light and darkness; “that you may remember (and hopefully ponder)” that you may know that the Creator of the pairs is One, so worship Him alone.

In the book, Safwat al-Bayan (may Allah have mercy on its author), “parity” means two opposite kinds such as day and night, heaven and earth, guidance and straying away from the right path and from truth, etc.

The authors of Al-Muntakhab in the interpretation of the Holy Qur’an (may Allah reward its authors generously) explained the ayah as follows [as appears in the original Arabic-English Egyptian translated version of the book]: And of everything, spiritual, animate and inanimate, did We create pairs, complementing each other: night and day, positive and negative, love and aversion, rest and fatigue, mercy and punishment, sea and land, light and darkness, belief and disbelief, life and death, happiness and misery, heaven and hell, male and female, and so on. And when we come to the universe as a whole, there is He who complements it and sustains it, whereas He is One and He does not need anything to complement Him, that you people may hopefully ponder.

Scientific implications of this noble ayah

The ayah which can be translated as, “And of everything We have created pairs, that you may remember (and hopefully ponder)” (Al-Quran, Adh-Dhariyat, 51: 49) is an assertion of the rule of Parity in the creation of all beings, whether animate or inanimate. In other words, Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) has created everything in true pairs and this parity is manifested across the board in all created beings and things and at all levels: from elements composing matter to human beings and beyond to the units composing the universe. It is a characteristic signifying uniformity, harmony and congruity in creation‏ and is an attestation to the absolute Oneness of the Creator (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala), Oneness that affirms that the Creator (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) is above all His creations. He is, as He describes His sublime Self to be, “There is nothing like Him; and He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer.” (Al-Quran, Ash-Shura, 42: 11)

He also describes this sublime Self in the following ayah, that He ordered the seal of His prophets (Peace be upon him) and consequently every believer to repeat as often as possible: “Say (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)): “He is Allah, (the) One, the Self-Sufficient Master, Whom all creatures need (while He is in need of no one). He begets not, nor was He begotten. And there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him.” (Al-Quran, Al-Ikhlas, 112: 1-4)

This Parity in creation, which attests to the Oneness of the Creator, demonstrates itself in the following stages:

1. Parity in all living organisms: humans, animals and plants;
2. Parity in reproductive cells (gametes): (ovum) and sperm;
3. Parity in the male sperm that contains either a male or female sex chromosome;
4. Parity in chromosomes that are present inside the nucleus of a living cell;
5. Parity in genes that carry heredity information and which are located on every chromosome from these ones.
6. Parity in nucleic acid structure;
7. How the four nitrogenous bases that build the (” steps”) of the DNA connect together in a parity.
8. Parity in how the deoxyribose molecule (organic) is linked with the phosphate molecule (non-organic) to form the (“sides”) of a DNA molecule;
9. Parity in the building of amino acids in both its forms: right-handed isomers and left-handed isomers;
10. Parity in proteins and anti –proteins.
11. Parity in the molecule by its two parts positive (cat ions) and negative (anions);
12. Parity in the atom and its nucleus which has a positive charge and its electrons which have a negative charge;
13. Parity in particles and antiparticles – it means in existence and non- existence.
14. Parity in the primary units of the matter and its opposing elements;-it means in existence and non- existence.
15. Parity in matter and antimatter it means in existence and non- existence.
16. Parity in positive and negative energy charges;
17. Parity in matter and energy, which are two sides of the same coin and two forms of the same essence that signifies the Oneness of the Great Creator.

Anyone who contemplates the universe can go on and on infinitely proving the truth about parity that exists in every aspect of the universe, whether big or small. Thus being an attestation to the absolute Oneness of Allah, the Creator, and only Him. No associate or partner shares this attribute (of Oneness) with Allah, nor does anyone contend with Him for it. It is an attribute of the One and Only, the Absolute, the Self-Sufficient Master, Whom all creatures need, while He is in need of no one, He begets not, nor was He begotten and there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him.

To fully explain the above pattern of parity, each point would need to be dealt with in a separate article. Therefore, I will only choose a few examples of them in the following analysis:

I. Parity in living organisms:

Humans and animals reproduce by mating of a male and a female, which is known as sexual reproduction. In most cases, the male and female exist separately from one another (i.e. in separate individuals). However, in some simple animals, the male and female reproductive cells are found in the same individual, which give the male type of cell to another individual.

In sexual reproduction, fertilization can occur either inside the body or outside it. In simpler animal organisms reproduction occurs through binary division, budding, fragmentation, and creation of colonies or through virgin reproduction (without fertilization). This is all known as asexual reproduction. A single animal can sometimes alternate between sexual and asexual reproduction during its life cycle.

Through our knowledge of Parity in elements and particles we can maintain with high certainty that some form of pair pattern takes place in asexual reproduction.

In plants, parity clearly appears in plants that produce flowers, which constitute more than a quarter of a million species. The flowers of these plants, which are produced through the blossoming of their buds, carry the reproductive organs made of male & female cells. These organs could be present in one flower, in two different flowers in the same plant or there could be male and female kinds of the same plant.

Fertilization in flowering plants leads to the production of seeds. Every seed contain the zygote of the new plant and an amount of stored food reserve for it given by the greatest Creator (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala). The seeds are usually contained in the fruit or are the fruit itself.

Non-flowering plants, however, reproduce both sexually and asexually through two phases of one life-cycle known as the alteration of generations. In its first phase, the plant produces both male and female gametes. The male gamete separates and is transferred through watery media to reach a female gamete to pollinate and fertilize it by uniting with it. In the second phase, the plant produces reproductive cells called haploid gametes which dispersed from the plant that is carrying after maturity, and grow in a suitable environment into a new plant.

II. Parity in male & female reproductive cells (sperms and ova):

Allah, the Creator (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) endowed the body of a sexually mature male the ability to produce male gametes known as sperms. Likewise, He endowed the body of a sexually mature female the ability to produce female gametes known as (ovum). When a pair of these gametes unites, it produces a zygote (nutfa amshaj). By the will of Allah, when the zygote is implanted in the wall of the uterus it undergoes cell division and the new baby comes into formation.

III. Parity inside the male gamete (sperm) itself:

Every sperm contains one of two sex chromosomes, either an X sex chromosome that represents the female or a Y sex chromosome that represents the male. An ovum can contain only an X sex chromosome. If the sperm that fertilizes the ovum contains a Y sex chromosome then, by Allah’s Will, the baby will be a boy, having a pair (XY) of sex chromosomes. However, if the fertilizing sperm contains an X sex chromosome then, by Allah’s Will, the baby will be a girl, having a pair (XX) of sex chromosomes. Therefore, parity is clearly also present inside the male gamete itself, besides the fact that there are male and female gametes.

IV. Parity in the chromosomes themselves:

Chromosomes are found inside the living cell nucleus in the form of string-like structures that are intertwined and packed in a substance called chromatin. These create the granular or net-like appearance of the nucleus. Chromosomes are primarily composed of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), which carries the genetic code of the cell, as well as being composed of proteins in roughly proportionate amounts. Each chromosome (whose number is one of the factors determining its type) is composed of two strings that are held together at a point called the centromere, which is a small point that has a determined location on every chromosome. Its location is sometimes close to the middle of the two strings and in most cases close to one of their two edges. This is one of the incredible representations of Parity in creation.

V. Parity in genes (which carry hereditary information):

Genes are distributed along each chromosomal strand in the form of individual segments of DNA. They are found in clear pairs, because one allele (one member of a pair of genes) comes to the embryo from the father and the other allele comes form the mother.

VI, VII, VIII. Parity in the structure of DNA and in the structure of its steps and sides:

Each DNA molecule is structured in the form that is known as the double helix, which can be structurally described as a twisted ladder. The “sides” of this ladder which are composed of deoxyribose sugar and phosphate groups demonstrate parity (in how the sugars and phosphate groups are alternately linked). Furthermore, the “steps” of the ladder, which are each composed of two out of four nitrogenous bases, demonstrate Parity in how they pair with each other. The four nitrogenous bases that make up the steps are: adenine (A), thymine (T), guanine (G) and cytosine (C). The first two bases always pair with one another and the latter two always pair with one another. Each of the bases lines up perfectly with its pair but not with any other base. Each pair of nitrogenous bases is attached to a pair made up of a sugar and a phosphate group composing deoxyribonucleotides, which are the units making up DNA. This proves how everything from the smallest to the largest unit is created in pairs.

IX, X. Parity in the structures of amino acids and proteins:

Amino acids are the building blocks of the various protein molecules, which make up the bodies of living organisms. Amino acids in most cases dissolve in water. In its crystallized form, an amino acid is very optically active due to its molecule being composed of a central carbon atom © bonded to four different groups: amino group (NH2), carboxyl group (COOH), one of 20 different ® groups, and a hydrogen atom (H). Therefore, the amino acid molecule is asymmetrical and these four groups rotate around the carbon atom. This means that the amino group can be found at different positions with regards to the carboxyl group. Due to the resulting asymmetry of the amino acid molecule, amino acids exist in either of two forms: the ones that rotate plane polarized light to the right (known as a right-handed isomer), or those that rotate plane polarized light to the left (known as a left-handed isomer). [Isomers are compounds having the same molecular formula but different arrangements of atoms in the molecule].

It has been proven that amino acids in the bodies of all living organisms (plants, animals and humans) are all left-handed isomers.

When the organism dies, the amino acids in its remnants start to re-arrange the atoms inside their molecules from being left-handed to being right handed, in fixed rates, until both left and right-handed molecules are present in equal amounts. Such a mixture of a pair of optical isomers with the same number of molecules is known as a racemic mixture. A racemic mixture cannot rotate plane polarized light [as both right and left-handed rotations cancel each other out], however it represents Parity in its narrowest form.

The proportion of right-handed to left-handed forms in one amino acid in the remnants of a plant, animal or human can be used to determine the exact moment of death, with very high accuracy.

There are 20 known types of protein building amino acids, each of which is in a clear pair. Through bonding of the 20 types of amino acids, more than a million types of proteins can be built. Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) has given the living cell the ability to produce 200,000 types of proteins. Similarly to the above mentioned structures, each protein molecule can exist in a right-handed or left-handed form. In the bodies of all living organisms the proteins have a left-handed form.

Similarly, nucleotides found on chromosomes, which are the smallest units that compose deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and ribonucleic acid (RNA), have right-handed and left-handed forms. In the bodies of living organisms they are found in their left-handed form.

Increasing in structure size, each protein has its antiprotein and each body has its antibody. In addition, there are constructive proteins and destructive proteins.

XI – XVII. Parity in matter and its compounds:

Parity is clearly evident in compounds which are composed of positive ions (cations) and negative ions (anions). Pairs can also be detected in the structure of an atom, where its nucleus has a positive charge and its electrons that revolve around the nucleus have an equivalent negative charge.

It has been proven that matter is composed of about 30 types of primarily chemical elements, each of which has its corresponding antimatter element. Similarly, particles of matter have their corresponding antiparticles. Matter as a whole has its corresponding antimatter. If a thing meets with its opposite (for example: every time a particle collides with an antiparticle) they annihilate each other, because they lose their material nature and are converted into energy, which declares the annihilation of matter. This brings closer the understanding of existence and non-existence; and the power to make something exist from a state of non-existence (i.e. to create without a previous model) or the power to annihilate to non-existence. Nothing has these powers except Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala), the Creator. In the same way, each form of energy has its opposite: electricity has positive and negative charges and magnetism has periods of normal magnetism and periods of reversed magnetism. Even light has clear parity, as it sometimes moves in the form of waves and other times in the form of particles.

It has also been proven that matter and energy are two sides of the same coin and two forms of the same essence that indicates the Oneness of the Creator (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala). The creation of elements in the form of pairs, their conversion into energy that also takes the form of pairs and the ability to convert energy back to its material state, confirms the truth that creation was initiated from a state of non-existence and confirms the possibility of annihilating it back to a state of non-existence.

We can detect Parity in all forms of creation, beginning from its smallest to its largest units. This is in such a way that the Creator (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) continues to possess, Him and Him alone, the attribute of Oneness rising above all of His creation. Furthermore, the standardized building pattern in creation signifies the Oneness of the Creator (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala).

In other words, each particle of an atom has its antiparticle and all of particles and antiparticles compose matter and antimatter; and antiparticles possess opposite properties to their corresponding particles, including opposite electrical charges, magnetism and rotational direction. Accordingly, whenever any or all of these opposites are found in one place, they annihilate each other.

Glory be to Allah Who created creation in clear pairs that bear witness to His complete Divinity and Oneness, raised above all of His creation. Glory be to Allah Who created matter and antimatter and energy and anti-energy. Glory be to Him Who created all of these opposites at the same time and in the same amount, to prove to us the reality of creation from a state of non-existence, and the possibility of annihilation to a state of non-existence!

Glory be to Allah Who separated matter and antimatter to allow for the existence of this vast, intricately built universe, the movement of which is masterfully perfected; anything that pertains to it is perfectly regulated and it is built according to one pattern that attests to the Creator’s (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) Oneness.

Glory be to Allah, who kept antimatter hidden somewhere in his realm until, if He wishes to annihilate the universe, He brings together matter and antimatter with His order “Be!” and it will be; and if He wishes, He resurrects everything by separating matter and antimatter again, through an order “Be!” and it will be.

Glory be to Allah, Who affirmed this sign of creation and said, “And of everything We have created pairs, that you may remember (and hopefully ponder)”. (Al-Quran, Adh-Dhariyat, 51: 49)

This scientific truth has only been discovered by man in the last decades of the twentieth century. Its appearance in Allah’s Book (the Qur’an) that was revealed to the seal of His prophets (PEACE BE UPON HIM) 1400 years ago, proves, without a shadow of a doubt, that the Noble Qur’an contains the words of Allah, the Creator (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala), and affirms the Prophethood of Mohamed Ibn Abd-Allah, (blessings and peace from Allah be upon him, his family, his companions and all those who follow his guidance and invoke by his invocations until the Day of Judgment).

All praise and thanks be to Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer

  

(b)-  What about the Hermaphrodite and Parthenogenesis (asexual, sexless) species?

1-  Hermaphrodite species are those that have both the male and female organs and can reproduce by themselves due to those organs:

"The term is sometimes used inaccurately to describe reproduction modes in hermaphroditic species which can reproduce by themselves because they contain reproductive organs of both sexes."  (Source)

Certainly, these species do not contradict at all the Glorious Quran.  On the contrary, they further prove Allah Almighty's Divine Claims, because here we have a group of species that still need to reproduce by having the pairs in them.  Yes, it would be one specie reproducing by itself, assuming that this is scientifically accurate to begin with, since much of these studies are still unconfirmed theories, as shown below, especially in the microscopic world, but be as it may, each specie in this group, nonetheless:

  1. Is still a representation of the pairs.  It could be one or the other or both.
      
  2. Wouldn't be able to reproduce if it didn't have those two organs in it.
      
  3. Still produces both males and females, as further shown below.

Therefore, this group of species certainly testifies to the Divine Miracle of the Glorious Quran, because the pairs exist among them.

  

2-  Parthenogenesis species are asexual or sexless.  They are believed to not have any sex in them:

"Parthenogenesis (from the Greek παρθένος parthenos, "virgin", + γένεσις genesis, "creation") is a form of asexual reproduction found in females, where growth and development of embryos occurs without fertilization by a male. In plants, parthenogenesis means development of an embryo from an unfertilized egg cell, and is a component process of apomixis. The offspring produced by parthenogenesis are always female in species that use the XY sex-determination system.

Parthenogenesis occurs naturally in some invertebrate animal species (e.g. water fleas, aphids, nematodes, some bees, some Phasmida, some scorpion species, and parasitic wasps), and vertebrates (e.g. some reptiles,[1] fish, and very rarely birds[2] and sharks[3]) and this type of reproduction has been induced artificially in other species.

Parthenogenesis is seen to occur naturally in aphids, Daphnia, rotifers, nematodes and some other invertebrates, as well as in many plants. Komodo dragons and the hammerhead- and blacktip sharks have recently been added to the list of vertebrates—along with several genera of fish, amphibians, and reptiles—that exhibit differing forms of asexual reproduction, including true parthenogenesis, gynogenesis, and hybridogenesis (an incomplete form of parthenogenesis). As with all types of asexual reproduction, there are both costs (low genetic diversity and therefore susceptibility to adverse mutations that might occur) and benefits (reproduction without the need for a male) associated with parthenogenesis.

The offspring of parthenogenesis will be all female if two like chromosomes determine the female sex (such as the XY sex-determination system), but they will be male if two like chromosomes determine the male sex (such as the ZW sex-determination system), because the process involves the inheritance and subsequent duplication of only a single sex chromosome. The offspring may be capable of sexual reproduction, if this mode exists in the species. In many cases, parthenogenesis occurs when one gender (typically the male) is unavailable in the general vicinity. Once males are again available, the parthenogenesis-created females would be capable of mating with the males and creating normal offspring.[4](Source)

As we clearly and indisputably see, the scientists themselves:

1-  Never unlocked all of the deep secrets of how these animals truly reproduce.

2-  Are unsure of how exactly the reproduction occurs with these species.

3-  These species are NOT ASEXUAL because they still do produce males and females as the red quotes above clearly state.

4-  The scientists claims are no more than speculations at best!  They are uncertainties and doubts; unconfirmed science.

Therefore, to use this bogus nonsense against Islam and against Allah Almighty is not acceptable.  The scientists seem to have yet still to scratch the surface of unlocking the deep secretes of how these animals truly reproduce.  All they have right now are unconfirmed and uncertain speculations, statements and theories.  But in all cases, we still have the male and female reproductions among these species!  So yes, the pairs are still there in these communities.  A single specie of them is still either a male or female according even to those scientists.  It is not a true asexual specie, and the scientists themselves are clearly uncertain about what to make of these species.

  

(c)-  What about cloning of animals and all creations Quran-Prophecy?

Does the creation/birth of animals through cloning, today, contradict and disprove the Glorious Quran? 

Answer:  No, because the born babies from this community still consist of males or a females.  So pairs are created from this community of species.  Again, Allah Almighty Said:

Noble Verse(s) 51:49
Yusuf Ali:

[051:049]  And of every thing We have created pairs: That ye may receive instruction.

Sher Ali:

[051:049]  And of everything have WE created pairs that you may reflect.

Shakir:

[051:049]  And of everything We have created pairs that you may be mindful.

Arabic (from right to left):

51:49 ومن كل شئ خلقنا زوجين لعلكم تذكرون

Also, Allah Almighty did make a clear and precise Claim and Prophecy in the Glorious about mankind will eventually follow the path of satan and will alter the creation of Allah Almighty through slitting the ears and cloning of creatures.  Please visit:

  • Were cloning, human-cloning, and gender alteration prophesied in Islam?  See the Glorious Quran's direct Stunning Miracle and Prophecy about modern-day cloning, and how it is dependent upon cutting of the ear.
  • Alteration of Creation Prophecy:

    Allah Almighty quoted satan telling Him, the Almighty, in the Glorious Quran the following:

    [004:119]  and (1) will lead them astray ولاضلنهمand (2) will stir desires within them ولامنينهمand (3) will command them ولامرنهم and (4) they shall cut the ears of animals فليبتكن اذان الانعامand (5) I will command them ولامرنهم to alter the creation of God فليغيرن خلق الله ." He who taketh Satan rather than God for his patron, is ruined with palpable ruin:

    Satan in the five different commands will:

    1-  Lead astray.
    2-  Stir desires.
    3-  Will command the evil ones.
    4-  To cut the animals' ears.
    5-  Then proceed to alter the creation of GOD Almighty.

    Notice the fifth "and":

    and (5) I will command them ولامرنهم  to alter the creation of God فليغيرن خلق الله ."

      
    The alteration of Allah Almighty's creation indeed began with the cutting of the animals' ears.  Animal and human cloning all began with the cutting the of the animals' ears to extract the necessary somatic cells from them.  Dolly the sheep was the first creation to ever be cloned.

    3-  Conclusion:

    Again, the Holy Quran and Islam are 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 Said: "We will 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)"

    Allah Almighty's Divine Claim about all of the creations that He Created on earth and in similar planets reproducing communities of pairs had been indisputably confirmed by Science.  All of the uncertainties, and the unconfirmed speculations, statements and theories that some scientists put forth, perhaps for gain of popularity, status and money by some of them, can not be used to disprove Islam.  Again and again, we continue to see Islam being proven to be in perfect agreement and harmony with confirmed and indisputable Scientific facts and discoveries.  This should not come as a surprise, because this is what we would expect from the True and Living Words of Allah Almighty, the Sovereign LORD and GOD of the Universe.

    Indeed, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty Alone for making the Noble Quran and the Divine Inspirations that He Sent to Prophet Muhammad 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.
