(salam)

A christian has asked me that Why Quran has mentioned that male sperms originate from between the back and the ribs. I could not answer him because of my little knowledge. Any one can help?

(bismillah)

خُلِقَ مِنْ مَاءٍ دَافِقٍ {6}

يَخْرُجُ مِنْ بَيْنِ الصُّلْبِ وَالتَّرَائِبِ {7}

[Shakir 86:6] He is created of water pouring forth,

[Shakir 86:7] Coming from between the back and the ribs.

Proceeding from between the backbone and the ribs.

There are many different ideas for the commentary of the terms /sulb/ 'backbone' and /tara'ib/ 'ribs', as mentioned in this verse, where the fluid comes forth from between them. In these ideas the commentators mostly try to comment on these two terms referring to man and woman from which the egg and sperm form the foetus.

But, primarily it should be noted that the verse is speaking only about a man's fluid, because 'a drop emitted' belongs to a man not to a woman since that of a woman does not emit and it says that the gushing fluid is so that:
Proceeding from between the backbone and the ribs.

Then, it is not appropriate to bring woman into this discussion. It is better to say that the Qur'an points to one of the two main parts of the life-germ, viz: a man's seed, which is understandable to all;. And 'backbone' and 'ribs' are a man's back and front; the area between which his fluid comes from.

This is a clear commentary and the meanings of the terms simply conform to what is found in a dictionary. Meanwhile, there may be greater facts hidden in the verse that modern science has not found yet, however, scientists may uncover them in the future.
