Islamic apologists convinced Dr. Keith to assert that the Quran is accurate, claiming that the fetus resembles a leech at the stage of 'Alaqa (علقة). Consequently, Dr. Keith proclaimed a 23-day-old fetus as the 'Alaqa stage mentioned in the Quran and presented an image in support of this assertion in his book.


Dr. Keith VS Muhammad: 'Alaqa Stage on 23rd Day

However, Muhammad stated that the 'Alaqa stage begins only after 40 days.

Sahih Bukhari, Hadith 6594:
Allah's Messenger said: Each one of you is constituted in the womb of his mother for forty days (i.e. Nutfah Stage), then he becomes a Leech like clot (i.e. ‘Alaqa) for a similar period, and then a piece of flesh for a similar period. Then Allah sends an angel who is ordered to write four things …

On the 40th day, a fetus certainly does not resemble a leech. A lie is often exposed by its contradictions, as seen here.
