79. On Resurrection Day, how can the decomposed and spread out parts of the dead come together and re-emerge from the earth?

Let’s have a look at some parables:

If you put yoghurt in a bottle and shake it, all the oil that was evenly distributed will come together in one place. Allah SWT will also shake the earth:

إِذَا زُلْزِلَتِ الْأَرْضُ زِلْزَالَهَا

“When earth is shaken with a mighty shaking.”1

Where the decomposed and spread out parts of each person will come together in the one place.

Mankind is from semen and semen is from nutrients and nutrients come from distributed soil. That means the wheat and the rice and fruits and vegetables all come to make semen which in turn comes to be human. So that means right now we are a product of soil that is from all around the earth that has come together to make us who we are.

Doesn’t the milk that comes from animals (such as cows and goats) come from the fodder they eat? A God that can make milk from grass can also make us come out from the earth after our death.
