Development of fetus in uterus (embryology) was much mentioned in the Qur’an and hadith. Along with advances in science and technology, especially in the digital era, reinterpretation of embryology with the multidisciplinary approach between Islamic and medical sciences, especially embryology, is a challenge and a necessity so that Islamic teachings can be the right answer in overcoming the problems faced by the people. This study aims to analyze embryology in the Qur’an and hadith based on the expanded multidisciplinary perspective. This study used library research method with multidisciplinary approach between Islamic and medical sciences, especially embryology. The result of study showed that the stages of nuthfah, ‘alaqah, mudghah, and blowing of spirit already were formed within 40 days of pregnancy. These stages are more accurately retranslated as follows: nuthfah as “the conception of a part of a woman's fluid (ovum cell) by a part of male fluid (spermatozoon cell)”, ‘alaqah as “resembling leech, something that attached to the surface, and something that depended”, and mudghah as “resembling a chewed substance”. 'Alaqah and mudghah morphologically and functionally describe human characteristics that can be formed and influenced by internal and external factors.
