M Shakir's Quran Translation
Darwinism is Incompatible with the Quran

Occasionally mistakes occur during DNA replication and protein synthesis. Any alteration in the structure of a gene
results in a mutation. Mutations occur during DNA replication when the chemical structure of genes undergoes
random modifications.

There are few evolutionist Muslims who misinterpret and force Ayaats of Quran 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. This Ayat has also been used by few
people to prove that Darwinism is compatible with the Holy Quran. The fact is very clear that Darwinism is totally
against the Holy Quran. (See the detailed discussion underSURAH ALE IMRAN 3:59)

This Ayat speaks of the miraculous way in which the shapes of disobedient people were changed in the past by Allah. There is no mention of mutation what so ever and Quran never gives a hint that these transferred characteristics are inherited. In fact in various commentaries of the Holy Quran we find various narrations from the Holy Prophet SAW where he told us that those nations whose bodies and faces were changed due to their disobedience, Allah made

them extinct and their race didn\u2019t continue.

Mention was made before him about monkeys, and Mis'ar (one of the narrators) said: I think that (the narrator) also (made a mention) of the swine, which had suffered metamorphosis. Thereupon he (the Holy Prophet) said: Verily, Allah did not cause the race of those which suffered metamorphosis to grow or they were not survived by young ones. Monkeys and swine had been in existence even before (the metamorphosis of the human beings).

(MUSLIM :: BOOK 33 : HADITH 6438)
The same thing is mentioned in Tafsir Ibn e Kathir. Hazrat Ibn e Abbas (RA) said,\u201d In a little time they all died and no
race emerged from them\u201d.(SeeTAFSIR IBN E KATHIR 1/ 178)

Some evolutionists also use this Ayat to prove that this Ayat proves that Humans did emerge from Monkeys. It is a great error to conclude something absurd from this Ayat which has nothing with what they try to prove. Here are few points for them to consider

1. This Ayat speaks of humans changing to monkeys and not monkeys to animals, like the evolutionists claim.
2.There race didn\u2019t continue and according to a narration from Tafsir Ibn e Kathir such people do not live for
more than three days after suffering metamorphosis. ( SeeTAFSIR IBN E KATHIR 1/ 178, also see the above
