PLANTS HAVE MALE AND FEMALE
Previously, humans did not know that plants too
have male and female gender distinctions. Botany
states that every plant has a male and female
gender. Even the plants that are unisexual have
distinct elements of both male and female.
And has sent down
water from the sky.
With it have We produced
diverse pairs of plants
each separate from the others.
FRUITS HAVE MALE AND FEMALE
And fruit of every kind
in pairs, two and two.
Fruit is the end product of reproduction of the
superior plants. The stage preceding fruit is the
flower, which has male and female organs (stamens
and ovules). Once pollen has been carried to the
flower, they bear fruit, which in turn matures and
frees its seed. All fruits therefore imply the
existence of male and female organs; a fact that is
mentioned in the Quran.
In certain species, fruit can come from non-fertilized
flowers (parthenocarpic fruit) e.g. bananas, certain
types of pineapple, fig, orange, vine, etc. They also
have definite sexual characteristics.
EVERYTHING MADE IN PAIRS
And of everything
We have created pairs.
This verse lays emphasis on everything. Besides
humans, animals, plants and fruits, it may also be
referring to electricity in which the atoms consist of
negatively - and positively - charged electrons and
protons. And many more things!
Glory to Allah, Who
created in pairs
all things that the
as well as their own
and (other) things of which
they have no knowledge.
The Qur'an here says that everything is created in
pairs, including things that the humans do not
know at present and may discover later.
