ALLAH (SWT) stated in many verses of the Qur’an that resurrection will be easy for HIM as HE created them the first time. Consider the following verses: And it is HE who begins creation; then HE repeats it, and that is easier for Him. To HIM belongs the highest attribute in the heavens and earth. And HE is the Exalted in Might, the Wise. (30:27); Have they not considered how ALLAH begins creation and then repeats it? Indeed that, for ALLAH, is easy. (29:19); Your creation and your resurrection will not be but as that of a single soul. (31:28); Is it not HE who created the heavens and the earth Able to create the likes of them? Yes, and HE is the Knowing Creator. (36:81); His command is only when HE intends a thing that HE says to it, “Be,” and it is. (36:82)

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) stated a miracle concerning resurrection, and scientists are now discovering only some of its aspects. Prophet Muhammad mentioned that the coccyx (tail bone) which is the last bone in the vertebral column, is what humans will be resurrected from on the Day of Judgment. He stated that this part does not decay in the earth. Abu Huraira, a companion of the Prophet, narrated that, “ALLAH’s Apostle said, ‘Between the two sounds of the trumpet, there will be forty. Abu Huraira added. “Then ALLAH will send (special) water and then the dead bodies will grow like vegetation grows. There is nothing of the human body that does not decay except one Bone; that is the Bone at the end of the coccyx of which the human body will be recreated.” The Prophet said “There is a bone in the Son of Adam that the earth will never eat. It is the coccyx.”

Scientists have proven that this (coccyx) bone was found to survive plenty of harsh treatment and has amazing properties: http://www.nicheoftruth.org/pages/the_coccyx_bone.asp.

And Science and Religion: http://humanitiesscienceandreligion.blogspot.com/2010/05/coccyx-bone-and-resurrection-nobel.html). It stated, “Researchers found that fetus cells’ formation and organization are exerted by the primitive streak and node and before their formation no cells’ differentiation could have taken place.” After German scientist Hans Spemann’s experiments on the primitive streak and node found that those (present in the Coccyx) organize the creation of the fetus, he called them “The primary organizer.” He cut this part from one fetus and implanted it in another one in the primary embryonic stage (third and fourth week). This led to the formation of a secondary fetus in the guest body due to the influence and organization exerted by the surrounding guest’s cells on the implant. The German scientist started his experiments on the amphibians by implanting the primary organizer in a second fetus, which led to the growth of a secondary embryo. The implantation of the cut primary organizer was in another fetus of the same age under the Epiblast layer and led to the apparition of a secondary embryonic anlage. In 1931, when Spemann crushed the primary organizer and implanted it again, the crushing did not affect the experiment as again, a secondary embryonic anlage grew. In 1933, Spemann and other scientists conducted the same experiment but the primary organizer was boiled this time. A secondary embryonic anlage grew in spite of the boiling showing that the cells were not affected.” Subhana ALLAH all this harsh treatment did not destroy it. A proof that earth will not eat it.

The Miraculous Coccyx, http://samirisaoui04.blogspot.com/2013/03/the-miraculous-coccyx.html#.VceAlJWD7IU, a story by Samir Isaoui, posted May 26, 2013, reported that “A group of Chinese scientists proved in some of their laboratory experiments that it is impossible for this part “Agbu adh-Dhanab” (the end part of the coccyx), to totally perish. They tried to dissolve it chemically in the strongest acids, through burning, pounding, and by subjecting it to various types of radiation. This definitely proves that the hadith of the Prophet is true and precedes all scientific experiments by 1400 years.” Here again, science guided by religious teachings can lead to new discoveries. Qur’anic science can provide valuable guidance to search for new information and new knowledge.
