Detailed verse by verse explanation of Quran in Urdu by Late Dr. Israr Ahmad.

وَاللَّهُ خَلَقَ كُلَّ دَابَّةٍ مِنْ مَاءٍ ۖ فَمِنْهُمْ مَنْ يَمْشِي عَلَىٰ بَطْنِهِ وَمِنْهُمْ مَنْ يَمْشِي عَلَىٰ رِجْلَيْنِ وَمِنْهُمْ مَنْ يَمْشِي عَلَىٰ أَرْبَعٍ ۚ يَخْلُقُ اللَّهُ مَا يَشَاءُ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ ﴿٤٥﴾
٤٥ - اور خدا ہی نے ہر چلنے پھرنے والے جاندار کو پانی سے پیدا کیا۔ تو اس میں بعضے ایسے ہیں کہ پیٹ کے بل چلتے ہیں اور بعض ایسے ہیں جو دو پاؤں پر چلتے ہیں اور بعض ایسے ہیں جو چار پاؤں پر چلتے ہیں۔ خدا جو چاہتا ہے پیدا کرتا ہے، بےشک خدا ہر چیز پر قادر ہے .
[24:45] Allah has created every [living] creature from water. And of them are those that move on their bellies, and of them are those that walk on two legs, and of them are those that walk on four. Allah creates what He wills. Indeed, Allah is over all things competent.
