Evolution

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Would it be permissible to say that while Aadam was created and did not evolve from a non-human ancestor, he was placed in perfectly to give the appearance of human evolution?

Bismillaah

A: We have not understood your question. Aadam (alaihis salaam) was made of clay. We advise you to leave all your sophisticated explanations of Aadam (alaihis salaam)  and just go with the teachings of the Qur’aan and hadeeth. We should not feel inferior of ourselves in anyway that we have to succumb to scientific research. This is also questionable whether scientific research is proven or not yet proven. Hence, leave all the scientific trash and go with the clear words of the Qur’aan and hadeeth.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
