66- And surely in the livestock there is a lesson for you, We give you to drink of that which is in their bellies from the midst of digested food and blood, pure milk palatable for the drinkers. 

16-The Honeybee, 66 V [016 SURE AN-NAHAL,V 66]

We often see goats, sheep and cows eat grass, and yet it rarely happens to any of us to fulfill a connection between this process and the milk and the dairy products we consume. God lets them feed on this grass, its final changes to be milk, one of the major nutriments. William Harvey discovered the circulation of blood nearly a millennium after the Prophet’s death . At the time of the Prophet, the fact that the blood carried the nutriments imbibed from digested food into its constituents to mammary glands for production of milk was not known. The new material turned from pasture into digested food and blood becomes a nutritive food. 

The Quran not only draws attention to truths unknown at the time, but also shows facts to derive lessons from. The blood collects and transports the materials shaped by digested food to organs; among others, to mammary glands. This process is initiated by blood coming into contact with the contents of intestines, on their walls. Before persisting its journey, carried by blood, portion of the digested food is imbibed by the intestines. This information is the consequence of modern research in biology, chemistry and in the physiology of digestion. 


Milk is the first food of the newborn mammal. It is a liquid execrated by the mammary glands of mammalians as food for their young in the period instantly after delivery . From the young of whales to human babies , all mammals feed on their mother’s milk. The young animals and the babies get their outfit of excellent nutrition without any fatigue. Milk is the best product for babies . No other nutrition can replace what is equiped  by it. We can identify thousands of nutritive food items in the world. Had the universe been the resalt of happy chances and had there been no ingeniously designed creation, there would have been no specific cause for the mother’s milk to be the best and most accurately chosen nutriment. This perfect order designed for every mammal, containing man, is a evidence of the Creator’s inimitable forethought. Substances digested to become blood transform into milk in the mother’s breast and are offered to the newborn by its Creator. Whether ratiocinated or mathematically calculated, it is impossible to confirm that this is the resalt of incidental events which have nothing to do with a designed aim . The child practices licking its finger in the matrix to be prepared for drinking milk as soon as it is delivered. The fact that mother’s milk comes precisely in the amount of the baby’s require without flowing is also precisely  planned. 

The milk we first taste from our mother’s breast will persist throughout our lives to be consumed by us to meet the demands of a healthy constitution. Milk is a whitish fluid consisting of small globules of fat hanging in a watery solution containing proteins, lactose sugar and minerals like calcium, casein and phosphorous, plus vitamins. Cheese, butter and yogurt are all made with milk, the major nutriment of man. The benefits that our body derives from its contents, like minerals and vitamins are more than the present book can include. When we consume it, we should remember always its Creator.
