Q: We studied something about the theory of Evolution and all that relates to creation as this forms part of our educational curriculum. The more I read on this subject, the more I become convinced that Allah is the Only One Who created this universe and all that it contains. Nevertheless, I was greatly astonished to come across a book written by a Muslim author approving the theory of Evolution and supporting it by the Qur'an! Moreover, one of my Muslim teachers asked me: "Since Islam forbids a man to marry to his sister; how could brothers and sisters amongst the offspring of Adam and Eve get married to each other?

A: The theory of Evolution which is renowned as the theory of Darwin contradicts the Qur'an, Sunnah (whatever is reported from the Prophet), and Ijma` (consensus of scholars). There are thus proofs from the Qur'an and authentic Sunnah stating that Allah (may He be Exalted) created Adam from soil then created Eve from Adam.

Regarding the fact that Adam (peace be upon him) married his sons to his daughters, this is something that he did according to the law that Allah commanded him to follow which we do not have any right to argue with. Anyway, as far the Shari`ah (Islamic law) that was sent to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is concerned; Allah makes it Haram (prohibited) for a man to marry his sister along with other well-established categories of women that a man is not allowed to marry. Besides, since Allah(may He be Glorified and Exalted) says,Surah Al-Ma'idah, 5: 48 To each among you, We have prescribed a law and a clear way while mentioning the laws of Tawrah (Torah), Injil (Gospel), and Qur'an; the same applies for Adam (peace be upon him) i.e. he had a specific law that he followed.

Q: What is the reality of man's origin? Is it true that the "ancient man" who lived on earth millions of years ago had a tail? How can we refute the claim of some western scientists on this issue?

A: The claim that man evolved from an ape is falsehood that conflicts with religious texts [which prove otherwise, trans.]. It is a fact that the father of humanity is Adam (peace be upon him), who was created from clay.

Also read the posts on the thread Atheist (thinking of coming to Islam) for more refutation of Darwinism and Evolutionism.
