THERE is no doubt that the universe is totally controlled by the Great Creator (God or Allah). Allah created everything in this universe, from humans (Man) to animals, plants, soils, air, water, etc., where everything was made or created from water. Concerning the creation of humans, Allah created or made all things in an excellent phase and the first step of human creation was fashioned from clay. These steps include the creation of Man from spurting water, a drop of semen, the sperm fashioned into an embryo, this embryo fashioned into a shapeless lump of flesh, then from the lump of flesh, fashioned bones, then clothed the bones with flesh and then created the consanguinity and affinity. So, a very strong link between soil and human health has been reported and the great roles of soils in plant and human nutrition have also have been established. On the other hand, the effect of pollution of soils and their security on human health should be considered. Therefore, this review is an attempt to emphasize the great roles of soils in human creation and health as well as the security of soils under pollution conditions.
