Chapter III:
Statements That Advocate Existence Through Evolution and Unwisely Insult the Turkish Nation
In the Books Allegedly Written by Mawlana Rumi




I died to the inorganic state and became endowed with growth, and (then) I died to (vegetable) growth and attained to the animal. I died from animality and became Adam (man): why, then, should I fear?

(The Mathnawi of Jalau'ddin Rumi, Translation and Commentary by Reynold A. Nicholson, Books III&IV, Couplet 3900, p.128)
First he came into the clime (world) of inorganic things, and from the state of inorganic things he passed into the vegetable state. (Many) years he lived in the vegetable state and did not remember the inorganic state because of the opposition (between them);

And when he passed from the vegetable into the animal state, the vegetable state was not remembered by him at all,..

Again, the Creator, Whom thou knowest, was leading him (Man) from the animal (state) towards humanity.
(The Mathnawi of Jalau'ddin Rumi, Translation and Commentary by Reynold A. Nicholson, Books III&IV, Couplets 3640-3645, p.472)

Existence through evolution has no place in the Qur'an. It is impossible even for a single protein to come into existence by chance. Over 700 million fossils further attest to God's creation. There is not even a sole fossil that proves the validity of evolution. Just as the jinn, angels and the staff of the Prophet Moses (pbuh) that turned into a snake in an instant were all created instantaneously without undergoing any evolution, humankind too was created at once as told in the Qur'an. In the face of this fact demonstrated by the Qur'an and science, trying to reconcile Islam with Darwinism is to instill in Muslims an understanding of Islam that is not existent in the Qur'an.

There is No Phase By Phase Existence Through Evolution in the Qur'an; Everything is Created by God's Command 'Be'



The Originator of the heavens and earth. When He decides on something, He just says to it, 'Be!' and it is. (Qur'an, 2:117)

It is He Who gives life and causes to die. When He decides on something, He just says to it, 'Be!' and it is. (Qur'an, 40:68)

Our Word to a thing when We desire it is just to say to it 'Be!' and it is. (Qur'an, 16:40)

His command when He desires a thing is just to say to it, 'Be!' and it is. (Qur'an, 36:82)

It is not fitting for God to have a son. Glory be to Him! When He decides on something, He just says to it, 'Be!' and it is. (Qur'an, 19:35)


Angels are not Created by Way of Evolution



Praise be to God, the Bringer into Being of the heavens and earth, He Who made the angels messengers, with wings–two, three or four. He adds to creation in any way He wills. God has power over all things. (Qur'an, 35:1)

When your Lord said to the angels, 'I am putting a successor on the earth,' ... (Qur'an, 2:30)

We said to the angels, 'Prostrate to Adam!' ... (Qur'an, 2:34)

We created you and then formed you and then We said to the angels, 'Prostrate before Adam,'... (Qur'an, 7:11)


Jinn are not Created by Way of Evolution



We created mankind out of dried clay formed from fetid black mud. We created the jinn before out of the fire of a searing wind. (Qur'an, 15:26-27)

He created man from dry earth like baked clay; and He created the jinn from a fusion of fire. (Qur'an, 55:14-15)


It is easy for God to create. Our Lord is the One Who creates from nothing without a need for a cause. Just as He created jinn and angels in different forms, He created man as a separate being without the need for evolution. The same is true for animals and plants and all other living beings. The explicit truth that is informed in the Qur'an is as follows: God created all these living beings from nothing in an instant without making them undergo evolution, that is to say, without turning them into other species.

Muslims Advocating Evolution can not Explain the Facts That the Staff of Prophet Moses (Pbuh) Turned Into a Snake and the Clay That Prophet Jesus (Pbuh) Breathed Into Turned Into a Bird and Flew Away



When Prophet Moses (pbuh) threw his staff onto the floor, the lifeless tree branch turned into a living snake, and when he held it again it turned into a lifeless tree branch, then again when he threw it on floor, it came to life. In other words, a lifeless material livens, then it becomes dead again and once again it comes to life. In this way God shows people His continuous Creation with this miracle.

He threw it down and suddenly it was a slithering snake.
He said, 'Take hold of it and have no fear. We will return it to its original form.' (Qur'an, 20:20-21)

(We said to Moses,) 'Throw down what is in your right hand. It will swallow up their handiwork. Their handiwork is just a magician's trick. Magicians do not prosper wherever they go.' (Qur'an, 20:69)

(A voice called out to Moses,) 'Throw down your staff.' Then when he saw it slithering like a snake he turned and fled and did not turn back again. 'Have no fear, Moses. In My Presence the Messengers have no fear.' (Qur'an, 27:10)


It is related in the Qur'an that when the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) made a clay object in the shape of a bird and breathed into it, the bird came to life by God's will:

Remember when God said, ''Jesus, son of Mary, remember My blessing to you and to your mother when I reinforced you with the Purest Spirit so that you could speak to people in the cradle and when you were fully grown; and when I taught you the Book and Wisdom, and the Torah and the Gospel; and when you created a bird-shape out of clay by My Permission, and then breathed into it and it became a bird by My Permission. (Qur'an, 5:110)

This bird came to life independent of any natural cause, by God's leave and miracle. A living bird emerging from inanimate matter is one example of Almighty God's peerless, matchless and sublime creation. Through this miracle bestowed on him by God, the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) also revealed the illogicality and invalidity of evolutionist thinking.


In The Books That are Allegedly Written by Mawlana Rumi, Turks are Characterized as Barbarians –far from it-, Just Like They are Portrayed in British Charles Darwin's Books




"...One day Shaykh Salah al-Din happened to hire Turkish laborers to do building work in his garden. Mowlana said: 'Effendi'—that is to say lord— 'Salah al-Din, when it is time for building, one must engage Greek laborers and when it is time for destroying something, Turkish hirelings. Indeed, the building of the world is assigned to the Greeks, whereas the world's destruction is reserved for the Turks. When God —He is sublime and exalted—ordered the creation of the world of sovereignty  ('alam-e molk'), first He created unaware-infidels, and He conferred on them long life and great strength so they would strive like hired laborers in building the terrestrial world. And they built up many cities and fortresses on mountain peaks and places on top of a hill such that after generations had passed these constructions were a model for those who came later.  Then divine predestination saw to it that little by little these constructions would become completely destroyed and desolate, and be eradicated. God created the group of Turks so that they would destroy every building they saw, mercilessly and ruthlessly, and cause it to be demolished. And they are still doing so, and day by day until the Resurrection they will continue to destroy in this manner. In the end, the destruction of the city of Konya will also be at the hands of wicked Turks devoid of mercy.' And this being the case, it turned out just as Mowlana said."

There is No Superiority Among Races in the Qur'an; Superiority is by Means of Piety Only



Mankind! We created you from a male and female, and made you into peoples and tribes so that you might come to know each other. The noblest among you in God's Sight is the one of you who best performs his duty. God is All-Knowing, All-Aware. (Qur'an, 49:13)

Acting Upon Superiority of a Race is Particular to Unbelievers



Those who disbelieve filled their hearts with fanatical rage–the fanatical rage of the Time of Ignorance–and God sent down serenity to His Messenger and to the believers, and bound them to the expression of heedfulness which they had most right to and were most entitled to. God has knowledge of all things. (Qur'an, 48:26)
