Assalaamualaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh Brother Hasrizal,
It was interesting to read your explanations of case 3. I’m particularly interested to know how you will integrate usul al din to teach evolution. Is it specifically the ayats of the Quran or hadith or do you have a different explanation. was Salaam
Waalaikum al-Salam WBT.
Thank you for your kind response.
Usually when Muslims heard the word evolution, many would quickly think about the Darwinism, the origin of man, were human being apes etc. I can still remember when I took my students to Belfast Zoo in Northern Ireland, one of my students saw orang utan or gorilla, he said “look, it’s our grandfather!” I was laughing at that time, but then felt sad and worry. I am not a man of science. My first degree was in Islamic Studies. So, if any of our colleagues found my argument wrong, please do not hesitate to correct me and guide me to a sound stand on this matter.
