Assalamualaikum...

so. evolution. its the root of enormous controversy and endless debate...there're people who staunchly believe in creationism, then there are those who accept Darwin's theory, and then there are those in the middle who support the intelligent design theory...so where does Islam stand on this issue? any thoughts?

Salam

I think this article explains pretty well, the theory of evolution and whats the Islamic perspective to it.

http://ldolphin.org/islamcreat.html

These were the conclusions made by Mr. Zia Shah, who wrote the article:


( 1 ) The material from which man has been created is not eternal. It was created by God.

(2) Man's creation involved an evolutionary process extending over a long period of time. He was not created in a moment.

(3) Man was created from an origin of his own species. It is not correct that he evolved from a species of monkeys or apes which is the theory advanced by Darwin.

(4) One of the evolutionary stages through which he passed was something akin to stone or rock.

(5) He next passed through a stage of animal life but intelligence had not yet developed in him although he moved about, ate and drank like other animals.

(6) He became an intelligent being able to speak and communicate.

(7) In his final stage he devised a system of life and started on the road to civilization and culture. Instead of each individual living for himself, as is the case with other and lower animals, he began to work in co-operation with others of his species evolving a system and law of life.

I want to add to your first comment. Man was created from material which is not eternal--I completely agree. Also note that we cannot create matter, but we can destroy matter. This is done through anti-matter. How is it that we can destroy matter and energy--but we cannot create mass or matter? Interesting. Matter had to be created.

Peace Within
