Then, verily He (Allah) fastened these limbs and parts together with fixtures (ligaments) and thereby strengthened them. And He made these connecting pieces like chords to hold these parts together and preserve them.

He made them numerous so that their number reaches a total of five hundred and twenty -nine ligaments. They all differ in their tightness, precision, length, shortness, placement and direction, according to their di Herein positioning and locations within the body. From these, He (Allah) made twenty-four ligaments that are tools for moving the eye, opening and closing it and its vision. If a single ligament of these twenty-four were to be absent, the eye would not be able to function properly. Similar is the case of every part of those that are attached by ligaments.

These ligaments are like instruments, which are used by these parts to move, perform and carry out actions. All of this is from the creation of the Most Wise Lord and the ordainment of the Most Mighty, the All Knowing, that takes place in a drop of repulsive fluid (i.e., semen). Therefore, woe unto those who deny (faith) and far removed are the rejecters.

The Messenger, Muhammad (Peace be upon him) said:
“Verily, in the human being there is a bone that the earth never devours. From this bone he (man) will be recreated on the Day of Judgement.” They (the Companions) said: “Which bone is it O Messenger of Allah?” He replied: “The tail bone.” (Reported by Al-Bukhari)

“Verily, the shin bone can withstand pressure of up to half a ton.” (Quoted from “Scientific Discovery”)
The ligaments, muscles and tendons have numerous different forms. The human body contains more than six hundred muscles and more than two hundred bones. A medium sized muscle has a mass that is made up of ten million muscle fibers. The thighbone (femur) contains more than thirty thousand special calcium cells.
Likewise, the collective work of the muscles in a day is equivalent to the work of carrying twenty tons.
Allah says;

“And We made for them the {faculties of} hearing (ears), seeing (eyes), and hearts.”(Surah Al-Ahqaf, 46:26)
Allah also says:
“They are deaf, dumb, and blind, so they return not (to the Right Path).” (Surah Al-Baqarah, 2:18)
Verily, the discussion of this has already preceded. Likewise, Allah combines between the heart and the sight, like in His statement:

“And We shall turn their hearts and their eyes.” (Surah Al-An’am, 6:110)
Also, there is His statement concerning the truthfulness of His Messenger, Muhammad (Peace be upon him):
“The (Prophet’s) heart lied not in what he (Muhammad) saw.” (Surah An-Najm, 53:11)
Then, Allah went on to say:

“The sight (of Prophet Muhammad) turned not aside (right or left), nor it transgressed beyond the limit.” (Surah An-Najm,

Similar is the case of the ear, for it is its (the heart’s) messenger that brings (information) to it. Likewise is the tongue, for it is its interpreter (to express itself). In general, all of the bodily parts are its (the heart’s) servants and its soldiers.
The Prophet said:

“Verily, there is in the body a piece of flesh, that if it is correct, the rest of the body will be correct due to it, and if it is corrupt, then the rest of the body will be corrupt due to it. Verily, it is the heart.” (Reported by Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

And Abu Hurairah said: “The heart is a king and the body parts are its soldiers. So if the king does good, then the soldiers will do good. And if the king does wickedness, then the soldiers will do wickedness.”
The lungs have been made as the ventilator for it (the heart) and they constantly blow on it (to keep it cool). This is because the heart is the hottest of the body parts. Rather, it is a spring of heat.
