Interpretation of scientific data in the Holy Quran verses

The bright side of mosquitoes

this is how it benefits man and nature, Glory be to the Creator… God Allah is not ashamed to strike the example of a mosquito or more.

Not all mosquitoes are harmful to humans

Practically speaking we cannot kill all mosquitoes on the planet. There are thousands of species, but only a few hundred of them spread diseases that can be dangerous to humans and mammals, such as malaria, Zika, dengue, and chikungunya.

But only the female of this species of mosquito causes harm, and the rest of the mosquito species bring potential benefits to the ecosystem and life and help in medical research.

Why does the mosquito sting skins?

Female mosquitoes suck blood in order to obtain the protein needed for fertilization, which is why they bite humans, animals and even birds.

But in general, mosquitoes feed on the nectar of roses, and in this way it helps them to pollinate, especially roses and aquatic plants where mosquitoes spend most of their time.

The favorite food of many creatures…

Humans can easily resist mosquitoes, especially with the spread of insecticides, but nature also helps us, as a number of species of birds, fish, frogs, spiders and others feed on mosquitoes.

Experts also say that these organisms may disappear if mosquitoes are exterminated

Stinging is not all evil

Mosquitoes have a mouth like a syringe, and when they bite the skin, they inject their saliva into it so that the blood that is absorbed does not clot.

Both (mosquito proboscis and saliva) are useful for human medicine, the researchers say. The former contributes to research on designing better needles (less painful injections), while saliva, which contains a protein called anophylline, may lead to new treatments for deep vein thrombosis

Cleaning up stagnant water

Mosquitoes lay their larvae in stagnant water. Humans give mosquitoes this fertile land for free, often through neglect.👉 But the larvae also “cleaning up” the water by eating biological waste, including other parasites.

This process certainly does not make the water safe to drink, but it has benefits in research on pollution control.

Mosquito proboscis

Look below (pic)

A Close-up pic of a malaria mosquito showing its prickles and palps, which it uses to sense odors and carbon dioxide emitted by living organisms. This you use to obtain a blood meal that is extracted from the shell hidden in the covering of the mosquito’s proboscis.

The female mosquito feeds on blood because it is necessary for the maturation of eggs, while the male feeds on plant juice and flower nectar.

*وَسَخَّرَ لَكُم مَّا فِى ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَمَا فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ جَمِيعًۭا مِّنْهُ ۚ إِنَّ فِى ذَٰلِكَ لَءَايَٰتٍۢ لِّقَوْمٍۢ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ*


And He has subjected to you whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth – all from Him. Indeed in that are signs for a people who give thought.

*Quran (45:13)*
