Islam and Evolution
There is no contradiction between Islam and Evolution. On the contrary there is evidence for evolution in Islam and in the history of Islamic civilization.
Islam and religion is not a scientific book. It is a way of life and how to live in harmony with all humanity. Islam urges us to use our brains and to think in a scientific way. If there is a scientific discovery that is absolutely true (although even science is relative). we don't have to find its proof in religious texts. If the religious texts contradicts the scientific facts. It means that we do not understand the religious text.
