Sura: Al-An’aam
Ayat 98

And He it is Who has brought you into being from a single soul, then there is (for you) a resting-place and a depository; indeed We have made plain the communications for a people who understand. M Shakir's Quran Translation It is He Who hath produced you from a single person: here is a place of sojourn and a place of departure: We detail Our signs for people who understand. Yusuf Ali's Quran Translation

Creation from a Single being
Creation from a single being ‫ نفس واحدة‬has been discussed in detail under SURAH NISA 4:1.

Resting Place and a Depository
‫( مسقر‬resting place) in this Ayat means the womb of the mother and ‫( مستودع‬depository) means the back of the father. According to some other commentators resting place is the earth and depository is the time of death (See Tafsir Ibn e Kathir 2/127).

This document is based on my under process book. I plan to collect all the Ayaats of the Holy Quran with deal with scientific, historical and archaeological subjects. I am trying to provide explanation to those Ayaats in light of Previous commentaries (Tafaseer), established science, archaeological discoveries and Arabic lexicons.
