Have those who disbelieved not considered that the heavens
and the earth were a joined entity, and We separated them
and made from water every living thing? Then will they not
Modern science affirms clearly that water is the basic building
block of life. Chemists have proven that water is a necessary
and active substance used in the reactions which occur inside
the body. For this reason, it is the only fluid which every living
thing needs, no matter how large or small it may be, starting
with micro-organisms to the largest living animals on earth.
The main source of life for humans, animals and plants is water.
It is proven by scientific analysis that the body of a human
adult from the age of 15 years and upwards ranges from approximately
50-75% water. As for a child, their body water
composition can be even higher. As for the plant kingdom, the
water content of common fruits and vegetables is as follows:
banana (74%), white potato (79%), grapes (81%), pineapple
(87%), celery (95%) and radish (95%). This shows how all life
is based heavily upon water.
