What If Evolution Isn’t True? What Will You Say to God?


What if Evolution isn’t true? What if Allah stw asks you why you did believe in it.?

Salaam alykum,

I have written about Evolution before, and while I am, based upon the scientific evidence we currently have, inclined to believe in Evolution, my whole world will not crumble if it is not true, nor does the relative truth of Evolution shake or alter my faith, in any way.

You see, if Evolution is true, that’s how God decided to create everything.

If evolution isn’t true, then, whatever we discover, that’s the way that God decided to create.

Either way, I do not think that God will ask me to answer for my beliefs on Evolution, because not only does God realize that I am a mere human and that my perception is limited, but, I think what we have to answer for is whether we simply attempted to fulfill our obligations, as Muslims. I mean, look at this ayah in The Qur’an:

“Verily, in the creation of the heavens and of the earth, and the succession of night and day: and in the ships that speed through the sea with what is useful to man: and in the waters which God sends down from the sky, giving life thereby to the earth after it had been lifeless, and causing all manner of living creatures to multiply thereon: and in the change of the winds, and the clouds that run their appointed courses between sky and earth: [in all this] there are messages indeed for people who use their reason.” [2:164] Muhammad Asad

Look how God underlines that it is through our understanding of this Earth and all that encompasses our existence, it is through these issues that we may get to know God’s messages. How profound a point is this?

Furthermore, I imagine that God will excuse me for all my scientific ideas, since, as someone who has no scientific ability whatsoever, I’m pretty sure I get a pass, since I know 6 scientific facts, all of which are wrong.

Insha Allah, I hope this answers your question, and if you, or anyone else, has a question on this, or any other topic, please do not hesitate to ask me.
