Question
What is the Islamic view on the theory of evolution?

Answer
Assalam-O-Alaikum,
BISMILLAHER RAHMAN-O-RAHIM,
The Qur’an clearly states that God created Adam and Eve in a unique manner as the first human beings. Thus, if the theory of evolution is taken as a whole, including the idea that humans descended from apes in a godless universe, it would be inconsistent with Qur’anic teachings that humans are the crown of God’s creation, distinct from other created beings. However, the concept that living things evolve from each other or that genetic change through mutation and selection may and does occur does not conflict with Islamic teachings.
Wassalams,
