The Mosquito

In the Quran, verse 26 of Surah Al-Baqarah: “Verily, Allah (God) is not ashamed to set forth a parable even of a mosquito or so much more when it is bigger (or less when it is smaller) than it. Those who believe know that it is truth from their Lord; but those who reject Faith say: “What means God by this similitude?” By it He causes many to stray, and many He leads into the right path; but He causes not to stray, except those who forsake (the path)”

Why something so minuscule, a Mosquito? This could be why…

The Mosquito, an ordinary little creature!!! God gives us its example in the Quran, to show us how this little creature has an extremely complicated nature.

  1. It is a female only the one who bites
  2. It has one hundred eyes in its head
  3. It has 48 teeth in its mouth
  4. Inside its little body there are three complete hearts
  5. It has six knives in its nose and each knife has its special use
  6. It has three wings on each side
  7. In the body of this insect is a digital X-RAY machine, which it uses to distinguish the human skin in the dark, in violet colour.
  8. Its body also contains a small vaccine working as a local anesthetic to help it to insert its thorns in the human skin without any feel or pain caused by the suction of the blood.
  9. It has an instrument for blood testing, because it doesn’t like all blood types
  10. It has a special mechanism to speed up the blood flow so it can draw it faster

Think about it…reflect… 🙂

  1. ALLAH has always been manifest in his creations, Glory be to HIM, it is obvious that it is him who creates and fashion all things. HIS similitudes are made for comprehension, as small as the mosquito spikes and as large as the sky is spread. HE deserves to be acknowledged and glorified indeed.
