FINGERPRINTS

Edip Yüksel falsely claims that Quran verse 75:4 reveals the scientific fact that no two people have identical fingerprints.
Actually, Quran verse 75:4 (John Medows Rodwell translation) says “his very finger tips are We able evenly to replace”. The verse is saying that after you die, Allah is able to restore your entire body whole again.

The Arabic word banānahu means finger joints or fingertips.
Nuri & Hoque had a unique comment about the mention of fingertips in verse 75:4 Their footnote mentioned that man has fingers superior to those of animals. I suppose they meant man’s opposable thumbs.
BODY IS OVER 50% WATER
Quran verse 21:30 says that Allah made every living thing from water. Muslim websites interpret this verse as a revelation that over half of the weight of a human body is composed of water.

PAIN RECEPTORS
Quran verse 4:56 says Allah will burn the skin of unbelievers in hell, cause their skin to grow back, and then burn the skin again. A Muslim website claims the verse reveals the scientific fact that skin has pain receptors. I think the verse merely reveals that pre-Islamic Arabs were experienced in how to torture people to inflict maximum pain.

BODY IS OVER 50% WATER
Quran verse 21:30 says that Allah made every living thing from water. Other Quran verses say Allah created man from dust. These 2 teachings combined are similar to the ancient Sumerian myth that the god Enki created man from clay and blood.
But Muslim websites interpret Quran verse 21:30 as a revelation that over half of the weight of a human body is composed of water.
