Finger prints are formed in the embryo at the fourth month, and remain fixed and distinct all along man’s life. Finger prints are a record of curvatures that arise due to the fusion between the epidermis with the dermis. These curvatures differ from one person to another, and they never match or correspond among all humans.
Finger prints have become the best method to identify persons. In 1858, the English Scientist, William Herschel, pointed out that finger prints differ with the difference of their holders, thus rendering them as distinctive feature evidence for each person.

Allah says in the Holy Quran:
“I do swear by the Day of Resurrection. I do swear by the reproachful soul. Does man reckon We shall not gather his bones? Yes indeed; We are able to shape again the tips of his fingers.”
Physicians conducted wide anatomical studies on a large number of people of different nationalities and ages, and they were confronted with the scientific fact to which they bowed their heads, and in submission they testified that no one is ever able to make similar all finger prints scattering all over the universe not even among two persons.
God is not only going to reshape them but He is going to make them testify against the person:
Upon the day when God’s enemies are mustered to the Fire, duly disposed, till when they are come to it, their hearing , their eyes and their skins bear witness against them concerning what they have been doing and they will say to their skins, why bore you witness against us? They shall say, God gave us speech, as he gave everything speech.
“Soon will We show them our signs in the furthest horizons, and in their own souls, until it becomes manifest to them that this is the Truth”
(Qur’an 41: 53)
