Allah almighty had supported this animal with some characteristics to enable it to live in desert in unbearable circumstances. The question is why the nature or coincidence did support that animal with these characteristics and didn’t support the others!!!?
Camels can travel long distances which allow them to take advantage of the maximum number of resources. They can withstand a massive amount of dehydration which allows them to survive not only between watering holes, but sometimes between seasons.
For food, camels are omnivorous. They can eat almost anything be it vegetation, meat, or bone, — salty or sweet, a camel’s stomach knows no limits.
Look at this beautiful creation.
When we see that we must remember Allah’s saying:
(Say: “Have ye seen (these) ‘Partners’ of yours whom ye call upon besides God? Show me what it is they have created in the (wide) earth. Or have they a share in the heavens?)
Quran Sûrat Fatir- (35:40)
General Characteristics of the camel
Camels’ weight is from 600 to1000 kg (1320-2200 lb.).
The legs are long and slender, with callousness on the ‘knees’ where they touch the ground when the animal is lying down. Though often called the one-humped camel, the dromedary has two humps used for energy storage in the form of fat. The under-developed anterior hump sits over the shoulders and the large rear hump is found in the centre of the back.
The upper lip is deeply split, and the nostrils can be closed. There are long eyelashes, which help to keep sand out of the eyes. The two broad toes on the feet are able to spread widely as an adaptation to walking on sand.
Bible says camel has no split hooves
Ecology and Behavior
The ability of the camel to survive in desert conditions without water for long periods of time is rivaled by none. The many physiological adaptations the dromedary has even earned it the title
Ship of the desert.
Dromedaries can glean much of their needed water from desert vegetation and can survive after losing over 40 percent of their body weight in water.
When water is available (fresh or salty), camels drink well – up to 57 liters at a time.
Camels also have a flexible ‘thermostat’ and will not start sweating until their body temperature reaches 42oC / 107.5oF. Nor do heating mechanisms kick in during the cooler nights until the internal temperature reaches 34oC / 92oF.
Besides saving energy, this physiological adaptation allows the camel to “store” coolness in preparation for the next day.
On hot days, dromedaries will rest together in closely packed groups, with reduces the heat reflecting off of the ground considerably.
The mouth is very sturdy, able to chew thorny desert plants. Long eyelashes and ear hairs, together with sealable nostrils, form a barrier against sand. Their gait and their widened feet help them move without sinking into the sand
Remember this notable ability of the camel is its ability to chew cut plants, which no other animal has. Cactus with big thorns can eat it. If it was any other animal, the gums, cheeks and tongue would have been injured by the thorns of the cactus.
But camels are nothing. Inside the camel’s mouth is a wonderful arrangement. On the inside of its mouth, there are numerous small hard finger-like arrangements, which protect it from cut wounds. There is a tongue that cannot pierce thorns.
The camel eye has two layers of petals. Due to which it can keep its eyes open even in dust storms in the desert. This special petal arrangement works as sunglasses to protect the eyes from the scorching sun of the desert and retain the moisture of the eyes. At the same time make it specially curved so that it can trap dust.
Also, to save water the kidneys and intestine of a camel are very efficient at retaining water.
Urine comes out as thick syrup, and their feces are so dry that they can fuel fires.
A camel can survive without food or water for up to six months.
Camels do not store water in their humps as is commonly believed. The humps are actually a reservoir of fatty tissue.
Concentrating body fat in their humps minimizes heat-trapping insulation throughout the rest of their body, which may be an adaptation to living in hot climates. When this tissue is metabolized, it acts as a source of energy, and yields more than 1 g of water for each 1 g of fat converted through reaction with oxygen from air.
Cars are human made… But who created this magnificent creation, coincidence or Allah?
Allah says: (Do they not look at the Camels, how they are made? * And at the Sky, how it is raised high? * And at the Mountains, how they are fixed firm? *And at the Earth, how it is spread out? *
Therefore, do thou give admonition, for thou art one to admonish) Quran Sûrat Al-Ghasyha (17-21).
By breaking many of the rules made by evolutionists, this creature has for some reason become innocent, calm, loyal to man. If God had not made the camel suitable for human beings, it would have been impossible for human beings to build a civilization in the desert.
Isn’t camel a sign as Allah said?
Why such animal is outstanding amongst others
Isn’t He the Creator All Knowing and All Wise?
