Where Does Life Start From?

Did you ever think about your life? We all know what life is. We all know how we are born. But there is something which many of us do not know. Or may be, you never tried to learn about the very phases of life. Whatever the case may be, but the life itself is such a great mystery that to deal with it is not that simple. Allah swt say in the following verse of Quran;

Al-Quran [002:028] How can you not believe in Allah? You were (once) lifeless and He gave you life. Then, He will give you death, and then He will bring you back to life. Then, you shall return to Him.
According to this verse, we were once lifeless. This state of lifelessness will return when we will die and then we will be given life again. The important point here to notice is the word “nothing”. We were nothing before we became something. How is it possible? The following verses explain it as;
[022:005] O people, if you have any doubt about resurrection, (remember that) we created you from dust, and subsequently from a tiny drop, which turns into a hanging (embryo), then it becomes a fetus that is given life or deemed lifeless. We thus clarify things for you. We settle in the wombs whatever we will for a predetermined period. We then bring you out as infants, then you reach maturity. While some of you die young, others live to the worst age, only to find out that no more knowledge can be attained beyond a certain limit. Also, you look at a land that is dead, then as soon as we shower it with water, it vibrates with life and grows all kinds of beautiful plants.
[023:014] Then we developed the drop into a hanging (embryo), then developed the hanging (embryo) into a bite-size (fetus), then created the bite-size (fetus) into bones, then covered the bones with flesh. We thus produce a new creature. Most blessed is GOD, the best Creator.
First thing to know is that we are created from dust. Dust that gives life to other things, itself is lifeless. So our core is taken from the lifelessness and then it is molded into life. Second thing is, our beginning starts from a drop of water, which Allah swt calls lowly water. This drop then turns into a blood clot which is like a leech. His leech then grows into us. In the first forty days of an embryo, it is life less. After 40 days, with Allah's decree, this lifeless clot starts to beat like our heart beats. This also tells us that our brains develop after our Hearst are developed.

Now, the point is to understand that life started from nothing. It started from no life and it will eventually return to no life. This is a blessing. This is why, Allah swt will ask us about our life and how we did with it. If we spend our lives in trolling and wandering around, it will be a waste. Think, are you created for waste? None of us likes to be called a waste in this world. In fact, this is such an insulting term that huge fights break out because of it. But still, most of us treat this blessing as a waste. And on the day of judgement, if Allah swt calls you a waste, how would you feel. There would be no place to hide face and there would be no shoulder to shed the tears. There will be only endless regrets and no solution.

To avoid all this, life should be taken seriously. Since it emerges from nothingness, so it will return to nothingness again.
