8. The Error About The Form Of Human Creation

Allah caused you to grow from the earth, and then will return you to it and bring you out again. (Surah Nuh, 17-18)

Muslims who have been deceived by evolution and who support the error of creation by evolution, view this verse as a vital foundation upon which they can base their views. The expression "Allah caused you to grow from the earth" is presented as evidence for inorganic evolution. As is clearly indicated in the verse's interpretation, however, it expresses the creation of the first human being from earth. Hamdi Yazir of Elmali offers the same interpretation:

There are two aspects to the verse. The first is that saying He created you from Earth means that He created your father from earth, and began the process of creating your race by creating him from Earth. The other is that he created all of you from earth, because Allah creates us from nourishment, from plants, from Earth.65

Omer Nasuhi Bilmen offers this interpretation of Surah Nuh, 17-18:

O people! Consider this. Allah made you like a plant from earth. In other words, "He has created Adam, your forefather, from earth, or your essential substance (zygote) came into existence from plants and several food stuffs growing in the earth. People then grow and live. (Then) O people, He will return you to it. In other words: When you die, you will return to the earth and become part of the soil. (And) Then He will take you out of the graves and drive you all to the Judgment Day. These are facts.66

Imam al-Tabari's commentary states that:

"Allah created you from dust of the Earth. He made you from nothing.… He will later return you to your original states, to the Earth. You will return to how you were before you were created. He can bring you back from the Earth alive when He chooses."67

As we have seen from these interpretations by Islamic scholars, this verse cannot serve as a basis for the error of evolutionary creation.
What is more, the claim of inorganic evolution has no scientific basis. The idea that lifeless substances could come together to form life is an unscientific one that has not been confirmed by any experiment or observation. Quite the contrary: French biologist Louis Pasteur (1822-95) showed that life can only come from life. This once again shows that life was definitely consciously created. In other words, Allah created all living things.
