Hen or Egg which came First???


We send down rain from the sky and produce on the earth every kind of noble creature in pairs.
 (Al Quran – 31 : 10)

O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. 
Quran: 49 - 13


An age old saying, when a person is not able to answer a question, they say as a joke – “did the hen come out first or the egg” and the Quran answers this question beautifully, Allah in other places in the Quran says that He created Adam (male) first and for Adam(a.s) he created Eve (female).  So Allah created the Cock first and for the Cock he created the hen,  and in the above Quranic verse he mentions “noble creatures were created in pairs” he says noble creatures, for there are also lesser creations like the amoeba and the earthworm who do not need to be in pairs,  because they are asexual and can produce by themselves fertilized eggs  without  a separate male and female.
Now to prove that the cock came first scientifically: 


If the hen came out first, then we do not have the cock to fertilize the eggs,  and if the egg came out first, then we do not have the hen to brood over the eggs to hatch them. So, it is very clear that the Cock was created first and for the cock, the hen was created (we created the noble creatures in pairs – Quran) and the cock and hen produced the egg, and from the egg came the hen. The answer is the hen came first and then the egg.


Allah says: And we have indeed made the Qur’an easy to understand and remember. Then is there any that will receive admonition?
 Quran: 54:17

Allah has not only made the Quran easy to understand, but has also sent a Prophet {Muhammed (s.a.w)} to show the practical side of the Quran,  for he, the messenger of Allah made his life a living Quran.


Friends, how much of our time, effort, and money we spend in our life to get curricular education  which will only serve our life for sixty to seventy years, maximum to a hundred years, but Quran and Hadees if we effort and take it up, it would serve us for millions and billions of never-ending years, and would also bring us a great victory in this life as well as the hereafter and would also make our curricular education and our experiences a great asset. So, PLEASE allot some fixed time everyday to the study of Quran and Saheeh Hadees.


In the Quran you find answers to all issues, only you would have to make an honest effort and go through it carefully and so also with saheeh Hadees.
