    Is Evolution Compatible with Islam? (OP)


    Hot out of the oven, this one is cooking up a storm in sh'Allah! So let's get straight into it!!!

    NOTE: If you are even remotely peckish, grab yourself some savouries and juice, and come back here!!!


    Is Islam Compatible With Evolution?

    Biological evolution is a topic that is always on the table when it comes to any reasoned discussion about Islam at a university level. With that in mind, the Islamic Society (ISOC) at the London School of Economics (LSE) invited iERA to deliver a lecture about the compatibility of Islam and evolution. This was part of the LSE Discover Islam Week 2018.

    iERA Outreach Specialist Subboor Ahmad spoke to a 50+ audience of mainly Muslim ISOC members from various disciplines across the university. His aim was to set the correct scene for them so that they will be prepared to answer questions from other students or answer the questions they themselves are asking on this important topic.

    Subboor spoke at length about the misrepresentation of evolutionary biology by popular Atheist figures. He also spoke about the philosophy of science and biology. His engaging lecture also discussed epistemology, the theory of knowledge as well as important scientific issues that evolutionary biology is based upon.

    The ‘aha’ moment came when the ISOC members understood that the science is not absolute and therefore not a problem for the Islamic discourse. They also walked away understanding that nothing in evolutionary biology disproves God.





    Enjoy dismantling evolution responsibly, always bin rubbish theories... and keep your country tidy

    Allah says,

    Say, [O Muhammad], "Travel through the land and observe how He began creation. Then Allah will produce the final creation. Indeed Allah , over all things, is competent." [Al-Ankabut: 20]

    There is evidence but we don't yet have a full explanation of how life began. There is no shame in saying "we don't know".
    For some of the things, saying "we don't know" constitutes kufr - disbelief. For example, the creation of the first human being, Adam . Allah already informed us about him that He has created Adam with His hands. If anyone says that he doesn't know from where the first human being came about, or how he evolved from apes, then that is kufr in itself. Allah says,

    [ Allah ] said, "O Iblees, what prevented you from prostrating to that which I created with My hands? Were you arrogant [then], or were you [already] among the haughty?" [Saad: 75]

    Then later Allah sent him down from paradise to earth. Read the whole passage here in Surah Al-A'raaf: http://legacy.quran.com/7/10-30

    I have been struggling with this topic for a while now since we are being taught of this in biology. InshaAllah Allah keeps me in Islam and not allow me to be taken away from Islam.

    He is Allah, other than whom there is no deity, the Sovereign, the Pure, the Perfection, the Bestower of Faith, the Overseer, the Exalted in Might, the Compeller, the Superior. Exalted is Allah above whatever they associate with Him [59:23]

    Re: Is Evolution Compatible with Islam?

    Greetings and peace be with you czgibson;
    There is evidence but we don't yet have a full explanation of how life began. There is no shame in saying "we don't know".
    Don't know seems a fair answer.

    Nilsson and Pelger's paper on the eye is speculative and based on deductive reasoning. It shows an evolutionary pathway that might account for how eyes evolved.
    As you say, the Nilsson Pelger paper on the eye is speculative and there seems no real evidence that it happened this way.

    What is dishonest about it?
    But you then see people like Dawkins going round schools demonstrating this evolutionary path, and giving the impression it is a done deal.

    In the spirit of searching for God;
    Eric

    You will never look into the eyes of anyone who does not matter to God.

    Re: Is Evolution Compatible with Islam?

    I think these articles by Daniel Haqiqatjou were not shared here. They give a good insight into this subject.

    Part 1: http://islamandevolution.com/is-evol...le-with-islam/

    Part 2: http://islamandevolution.com/is-evol...-islam-part-2/

    Is Evolution Compatible with Islam? (Part 1) - Islam and Evolution
    Can Muslims accept Evolution? What is at stake if they do or don't? What does the Quran say about human origins? Are Muslims creationists?...

    No, I do not agree with Haqiqatjou. According to his logic Evolution contradicts with religion. However, with the same logic the existence of Jesus pbuh iq questionable because that too contradicts with science as well.
    Yet, (if he is a Muslim) he believes in the contradiction that Jesus existed and had no father, which biologically is impossible because Jesus must have gotten his Y-chromosomes from someone.
    His mistake is that this seems contradicting, and normally it is indeed contradicting, but Allah is capable of making miracles happen.
    The birth of Jesus and the creation of Adam was a miracle, a one time only exception on the natural evolution process and human reproduction process.

    Yes, he is a Muslim. I think you might have misunderstood his conclusion. Please read the second part as well to understand what he is actually trying to say.
