Qura’an narrates: All life forms are created as pairs, while bacteria, virus and unicellular organisms are asexual?

The question seems expressing circumstantial-ad-hominem.

Qura’an has neither specified nor referred to the sexuality of the pair/couple. Qura’an has also not used the word “Life-form” in this case.  In the daily-life parlance, a pair of socks does not demand such a specification.  When worn, one would become right foot socks and the other left foot socks. So could be the case with the bacteria, viruses and unicell organisms. (interchanging/adaptive as explained in, Q, 54:49).

“And all things We have created by pairs, that haply ye may reflect”.  (Q, 51:49) 

“Verily, all things have We created in proportion and measure OR We have created everything to fulfill a certain purpose”. (Q, 54:49) 

 Now here is the scientific position about micro-organisms you are referring to.

In asexual organisms (at least in bacteria), the differences between species (different strands) are measured through genetic sequences and organism characteristics.

In these days of high throughput sequencing, most attempts to describe new species come with at least one genomic sequence. Additionally, a whole host of characteristics, including optimal growth temperature, morphology, numerous metabolic capabilities, etc. are used.

We were largely in the dark. Some of it was morphological, but past that we don’t know. Think about the now-defunct kingdom Protista: we thought that single-celled eukaryotes were all closely related, but now we know that they’re spread around the multicellular eukaryotes.

The real purport and spirit of the word “pairs” here, is the thesis and its anti-thesis.

e are avid bird watchers/feeders, and we do watch our birds out the window at the feeder often,” Shirley Caldwell said in email, noting that she and her spouse, Jeffrey, have maintained bird feeders for 25 years.

Miraculous fusion of the sexes, discovered in Pennsylvania in 2019 (Published in Medium)

A northern cardinal, Cardinalis cardinalis, with a truly astounding color pattern. When the bird faced one direction, it was a male, cloaked in all his scarlet finery, but when it faced the opposite direction, it was a female, easily identified by her subdued tan plumage. But when this bird faced straight, it was half red and half tan; its colors divided lengthwise down its middle. It was almost as if two birds, one male and the other female, had been split in half and the halves had been neatly stitched together.
