  1. Assalaamu alaikum,

    I was wondering if you could please share information on books or articles (in English, Urdu, or Arabic) about the islamic perspective of evolution and the arguments for and against it.

    Jazakallahu khair

  2. asSalaamu Alaikum,

    An online version of “Evolution of Creation?” by Maulana Shihabuddin Nadwi (ra) is partially available online here:

    This translation of a work by Imam Ibn al-Qayyim (ra) may also have some material, although probably not a refutation of any sorts:

    There is a book called “Religion & Science” by Maulana Wahiduddin Khan which contains a brief discussion on evolution. The book is quite brief, less than a 100 pages, and discusses atheistic views and modern age’s reliance upon material sciences at the cost of rejecting religion. At times the translation (from Darul Ishaat Publications) seems a bit long winded.

  3. To refer to him as ‘Maghribi’ is incorrect, as he was from Nigeria. I am not familiar at all with the Dan Fodios being referred to as ‘Maghribis’. This is usually reserved for Moroccans, Algerians, Tunisians and Mauritanians (sometimes, who themselves as generally referred to as ‘Shinqitis’).
