While it is expressed in the Qur’an that it is simple for Allah to give life to man back after death, people’s fingerprints are especially accentuated, Allah Almighty says in the Quran:
بَلَى قَادِرِينَ عَلَى أَنْ نُسَوِّيَ بَنَانَهُ – القيامة: 4
Yes, We are able to put together in perfect order the very tips of his fingers. (Quran 75:4)
The emphasis of Quran on fingerprints has an exceptionally unique importance. This is because shapes and details on everyone’s fingerprint are unique to each individual.
Each individual who is alive or who has ever lived in this world has an arrangement of exceptional fingerprints. Moreover, even identical twins having the very same DNA sequence have their own arrangement of fingerprints.
The validity of the technique to establish identity by means of fingerprints (AFS) has been confirmed by various police organizations over the last 25 years and is a legally approved method.
Although retina scanners are also used for identification, no technology of identity verification in our time gives such effective results as fingerprints. Using fingerprints to establish identity has been used in legal processes for the last 100 years and possesses international acceptance.
People in the past regarded fingerprints as ordinary curves without any specific importance or meaning. However, in the Qur’an, Allah points to the fingertips, which did not attract anyone’s attention at that time, and calls our attention to their importance. This importance has only been fully understood in our day.
