I'm trying to solve this confusion and it's taking me hours trying to make sence of it x_x
So the order in the Quran in chapter 23:12-14 is:
Sperm drop - alaqah (clot) - mudghah (chewed substance) - bones - dress the bones with flesh.*
Now the alaqah is perfect and I already know the meanings for that word, so that one is fine.
It's mudghah I'm trying to solve. I do know that the word means chewed substance which means that the object looks like it's been chewed on. But In the Quran I'm using on my iPod says fetus lump and on the site:
It saysBut how can the bones already be developed before the mudghah (fetus)?*the bones begin to develop...After 8 weeks, the embryo is now referred to as a fetus
