Science and the theory of evolution

Q: I am a student and I just need to enquire about some things. I don’t believe in evolution, but there is a lot of science and fossils like Mrs Ples and the Taung child as well as the Stone Age and Bronze Age and also all the tools and weapons that the apparent “early humans” used. I know we do not come from monkeys but all this science? Also , where were the Prophets during this supposed time of the Bronze and Stone Age? In what era according to the Gregorian calendar did the Prophets live?


A: This is purely guess work. Many a times it is just speculation and many a times it has already been proven that scientists had concocted and faked up many things. So don’t run behind things that are faked and fictitious. Go by certainties, and the only thing that is certain without doubt is the book of Allah and the teachings of Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) as explained by our senior ulama.
