FINGERPRINTS
“Does man think that We Cannot assemble his bones? Nay, We are able
to put Together in perfect order The very tips of his fingers.” [Al-Qur’aan
75:3-4]
Unbelievers argue regarding resurrection taking place after bones of dead
people have disintegrated in the earth and how each individual would be
identified on the Day of Judgement. Almighty Allah answers that He can not
only assemble our bones but can also reconstruct perfectly our very
fingertips.
Why does the Qur’aan, while speaking about determination of the identity of
the individual, speak specifically about fingertips? In 1880, fingerprinting
became the scientific method of identification, after research done by Sir
Francis Golt. No two persons in the world can ever have exactly the same
fingerprint pattern. That is the reason why police forces worldwide use
fingerprints to identify the criminal. 1400 years ago, who could have known
the uniqueness of each human’s fingerprint? Surely it could have been none
other than the Creator Himself!
