Just as with natural selection, Muslims who have been deceived by evolution and who believe in the error of evolutionary creation misinterpret and force Qur'anic verses when it comes to mutation.
However, to think that a natural mechanism that has nothing but destructive effects could be evidence for evolution is a terrible error. No evolutionary effect of mutation has ever been observed. (For more detail on the scientific evidence about this subject, please see Darwinism Refuted by Harun Yahya, Goodword Publishers, New Delhi, 2003, Evolution Deceit by Harun Yahya, Taha Publishers, London, 1999) The important thing here is the evidence that thoseMuslims who have been deceived by evolution and who believe that mutation is a mechanism of evolution try to offer from the Qur'an. They completely twist some verses away from their actual meaning. The verses in question read:
If We willed, We could transform them where they stand so they would neither be able to go out nor return. (Surah Ya Sin, 67)
You are well aware of those of you who broke the Sabbath. We said to them, "Be apes, despised, cast out." (Surat al-Baqara, 65)
When they were insolent about what they had been forbidden to do, We said to them, "Be apes, despised, cast out!" (Surat al-A'raf, 166)
Say: "Shall I tell you of a reward with Allah far worse than that: that of those whom Allah has cursed and with whom He is angry – turning some of them into monkeys and into pigs – and who worshipped false gods? Such people are in a worse situation and further from the right way." (Surat al-Ma'ida, 60)
So He (Moses) threw down his staff and there it was, unmistakably a snake. (Surat al-A'raf, 107)
Unless someone believes that it is necessary to twist and force the truth to find some Qur'anic evidence for evolution, it is impossible to see the verses as any kind of evidence for mutation.
The first four verses speak of the miraculous way in which Allah changes living things' bodies. The subject of the fifth verse is not even living, which makes it impossible to suggest it undergoes mutation. These Muslims' portrayal of these verses as evidence for evolution shows just how corrupt, forced, and un-Islamic the deceit of evolutionary creation truly is.
