    Default Does the Qur'an say everything is created in pairs?

    Assalamualykum I was going through the website and I came across the article on "everything created in pairs" and I thought I could contribute to a more satisfactory response to the alleged error in the Qur'an. If we take a closer look at the ayah 51:49 it says "and from everything we created pairs" It doesn't say everything is created in pairs, rather it says that from everything Allah created he created pairs.

    Some Muslims also claim the mere existence of antimatter complements to matter, without regard to their relative abundance (matter dominates in our universe after the first second post the Big Bang) proves the validity of the ‘creation in pairs’ verses, particularly 43:12, 51:49, and especially 36:36 (as in “pairs of things unknown to them”).[1] The ‘things unknown to them’ part supposedly refers to our modern understanding of particle physics.

    "And from everything We have created pairs that you may be mindful." Surat Adh-Dhāriyāt (51) Ayah 49
    In the name of Allah and peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah ...

    In their trial to find an "error" in quran, Islam haters argued that this ayah is false due to asexual reproduction of some organisms !!

    First of all we need to read this article to understand "the concept of parity" as a universal phenomenon

    Then, Why doesn't asexual reproduction contradict the ayah by any way ?

    The ayah didn't say "Everything", rather it said "from/of everything ". It's an arabic expression used to mean "many/ a lot of".
    Let's examine other ayahs first

    1- God says in surat Annaml 27:23 :
    إِنِّي وَجَدتُّ امْرَأَةً تَمْلِكُهُمْ وَأُوتِيَتْ مِن كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَلَهَا عَرْشٌ عَظِيمٌ
    Sahih International
    Indeed, I found [there] a woman ruling them, and she has been given of all things, and she has a great throne.
    وَوَرِثَ سُلَيْمَانُ دَاوُودَ ۖ وَقَالَ يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ عُلِّمْنَا مَنطِقَ الطَّيْرِ وَأُوتِينَا مِن كُلِّ شَيْءٍ ۖ إِنَّ هَٰذَا لَهُوَ الْفَضْلُ الْمُبِينُ
    Sahih International
    And Solomon inherited David. He said, "O people, we have been taught the language of birds, and we have been given from all things. Indeed, this is evident bounty."
    We don't need to say that Sulayman- Peace be upon him- and the woman didn't have "every thing" but they were given "from" every thing as the woman's kingdom wasn't given to Sulayman and vise versa. It refers to those things only which are needed by the government or an empire. Otherwise it is obvious that they did not have cars or railways in those days. It means that whatever services are needed to a king or an aristocrat according to their time, they all were available to her. It is, however, obvious that those things that were not available to them, their unavailability is not in conflict with this verse.
    The same expression was used in the ayah above "و من كل شيء" "from/of every thing"
    2- In surat Alanbyaa' 21:
    وَجَعَلْنَا مِنَ الْمَاءِ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ حَيٍّ ۖ أَفَلَا يُؤْمِنُونَ

    and we made from water every living thing? Then will they not believe?
    كُلُّ نَفْسٍ ذَائِقَةُ الْمَوْتِ ۗ وَنَبْلُوكُم بِالشَّرِّ وَالْخَيْرِ فِتْنَةً ۖ وَإِلَيْنَا تُرْجَعُونَ
    Sahih International
    Every soul will taste death. And We test you with evil and with good as trial; and to Us you will be returned.
    God didn't say in this ayah "from everything" but "every thing-every soul " and this means no exceptions !!
    Quran is the final testament from God. A distinct feature of the Qur’anic diction is that it encloses a vast range of meaning in a surprisingly small number of words without losing its charm and majesty in the least.
    The language of the Qur’an contains all possible kinds of eloquence, metaphor, similes, comparisons, transitions, inversions etc., but at the same time it is free of any hint of verbiage like false exaggeration, hyperbolical statements and all other defects of falsehood . Human writing does not usually combine all the aspects of eloquence in one work. People have tried in vain to accommodate all these qualities. The Holy Qur’an, however, does so superlatively.
