    "To Allah belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth. He creates
    what He wills. He bestows female (offspring) upon whom He wills, and
    bestows male (offspring) upon whom He wills. Or He bestows both males and
    females, and He renders barren who He wills. Verily, He is the All-Knower
    and is Able to do all things." (Ash-Shura 42:49-50)
