It has been discovered that one of the first senses to develop in a developing human Embryo is the hearing. The Foetus can start to hear sounds after the 24th week and the sense of sight is developed by the 28th week.
The next few verses you will be reading from the Qur’an revealed over 1400 years ago amazed me. You will find that the hearing sense is mentioned first in all the verses and to back this up I have also included translations from the other major translators. The Qur’an matches with the discovery of modern Embryology. Another amazing miracle which could not have been known by humans over 1400 years ago.
Then made him proper and blew into him a spirit from Him, and bestowed ears and eyes and hearts to you; very little thanks do you offer! (Qur’an 32:9)
