Dear Bilal,Quran(the divine book)and the laws of nature supports each other,never conflict at all becaus both are divine message.If any scholar prove or deny any theory (whether evolutionary) by LAWS OF NATURE,we have to accept it whether it is written in quran or not.THEORY OF EVOLUTION is entirly dependent upon the LAWS OF NATURE.Evolution mainly works by natural selection. What does this mean? Animals and plants which are best suited to their environment will, on average, survive better. There is a struggle for existence. Those who survive will produce the next generation. Their genes will be passed on, and the genes of those who did not reproduce will not. This is the basic mechanism which changes a population and causes evolution.  
Natural selection explains why living organisms change over time to have the anatomy, the functions and behaviour that they have. It works like this: All living things have such fertility that their population size could increase rapidly for ever. The parents pass such traits to the children through their genes.  
The next generation can only come from those that survive and reproduce. After many generations of this, the population will have more helpful genetic differences, and fewer harmful ones. Natural selection is really a process of elimination. The elimination is being caused by the relative fit between the individuals, and the environment they live in.  
The wings of birds are good examples of evolution that is caused by the creature adapting (changing to fit in) to its environment. Many birds' wings have evolved so that they can fly in different ways, depending on their needs. Forest birds have different needs to desert birds. Vultures live where there is little food. They have to search for it over long distances. Their wings have evolved for soaring so that they do not use much energy when flying for long periods of time.Penguins spend a lot of time in the ocean. Over time their wings evolved into flippers so that penguins now fly through water, but not through air. Other birds, like ostriches, live on the ground, and do not need their wings to fly. These birds can run fast, and also defend themselves. The wings got smaller. Ostriches' wings are now used only for display. The bird fluffs its wings out to make its body look bigger.All living things show variation. Every population which has been studied shows that animal and plants vary as much as humans do. This is a great fact of nature, and without it evolution would not occur. Darwin said that, just as man selects what he wants in his farm animals, so in nature, the variations allow natural selection to work.Plz read the book QISSA E ADAM O IBLEAS by Dr. Qamarzaman as a final touch regarding the verses related to the creation of ADAM and EVE,SHETAN ,THE DIVINE MESSAGES,THE SILSALA E RUSUL.

Dear Bilal,  
 
I must appreciate the scholarly reflection of Brother Moazzam. It is difficult for my meager knowledge to be more eloquent. I would be very short and straightforward.  
 
The Theory of EVOLUTION according to Quran - this is what you inquired about.  
 
Quran is the Book of Guidance and that GUIDANCE is itself EVOLUTION. Wherever in Quran you find the words ZAKAT, ZAKI, MAZKI, TAZAKKA, YUZAKKI, etc. etc. what else that means except EVOLUTION?  
 
Most of the times with the commandments for SALAT, the commandment of EVOLUTION is invariably attached with the words : و آتو الزکوۃ AND PROVIDE THE MEANS AND RESOURCES FOR EVOLUTION.  
 
So, you can see that Quran not only supports it but its foremost Goal is nothing but EVOLUTION of humanity.  
 
God bless you.

salam and blessings,  
 
As far as my research shows there is no shame in believing in the evelutionary process and a closer study of the different ayas will confirm that this process is described in the Quran.  
 
Creation/Evolution:  
 
The Qur'an states that man as a species was created through a gradual process. It states:  
 
 
"Seeing that He (Allah) created you in successive stages' (Qur'an 71:14)[6]  
 
 
Centuries before Darwin, when the West was in the Dark Ages, the Muslims believed that the appearance of humans was not an instantaneous event but a gradual process in which humans were derived from earlier forms. Ibn Khaldun, a Muslim scholar, wrote 500 years before Darwin that man belongs to the animal kingdom:  
 
 
"...[M]an belongs to the genus of animals and that God distinguished from them by ability to think, which He (Allah) gave man and through which man is able to arrange his actions in an orderly manner."[7]  
 
 
He further states:  
 
 
"One should look at the world of creation. It started out from the minerals and progressed, in an ingenious, gradual manner to plants and animals...The animal world then widens, its species become numerous, and, in a gradual process of creation, it finally leads to man, who is able to think and reflect. The higher stage of man is reached from the world of monkeys, in which both sagacity and perception are found, but which has not reached the stage of actual reflection and thinking. At this point we come to the first stage of man after the world of monkeys. This is as far as our physical observation extends."[8]  
 
 
The last sentence of the above quote shows that Muslims reached these conclusions by observations.  
 
Creation/Evolution of Adam and Eve  
 
Ibn Arabi, who lived about 800 years before Darwin is one of the most respected exegetes of the Qur'an. His views on the origin of life and man can be summarized in his own words from the "Uqlatu'l-Mustawfiz:  
 
 
"On they rolled to perfection: Thus the meaner world was born. Mineral passed to vegetable life, out of which animal life was born."  
 
 
"Then creation continued on earth, minerals, then vegetation, then animals, and then man. God made the last of every one of these kinds. The last of the minerals and the first of the vegetations is the truffle. The last of the vegetation and the first of the animals is the date palm. The last of the animals and the first of mankind is the monkey."  
 
"Since the perfect man is in the perfect form, he deserves the vicegerentship and deputyship of God in the Universe. Here we shall explain the evolution of this vicegerent, his position and form as they are. We do not mean Man only as animal, but on the other hand, as Man and vicegerent . . . This is the intended Perfect Man. The others are animal men. The relation of the animal man to the Perfect Man is that of the ape to the animal man."  
 
"As for the animal man, he is not a man essentially. His case is like that of animals. But he is distinguished from another through differentiae peculiar to every one of the animals."  
 
"The goal of all this was man coming in perfect form. When the field was thus prepared, Man came in the nicest form."  
 
"When God desired the perfection of human evolution, He collected and bestowed on Man all realities of the Universe and illuminated him with all His names."  
 
"When this comprehensive name became capable of two aspects by itself, it became fit for vicegerentship and organization and gradation of the Universe. If Man does not reach the stage of perfection, he is an animal whose appearance resembles the external appearance of man. Here we are concerned with Perfect Man. The first of human species whom God made was the Perfect Man. He was Adam (may peace be on him). Thus God demonstrated the stages of perfection for the species. He who attains to it is the man who attains perfection, and he who goes down from that stage is one who possesses the human quality in proportion to where he is.[9]  
 
Ibn Arabi wrote in Futuhat al-Makkiyyah Vol.3:607: 'I recollected the saying of Holy Prophet to the effect that God has created hundred and thousands of Adams and between each Adam there is a period of seventeen hundred years.'[10]  
 
Active Nature  
 
The secular as well as religious West have the notion that nature's actions within itself violate the Jewish, Christian and Muslim tenets. I will not comment on the Judeo-Christian perspective on nature's actions. The Muslims in their classical period (500-1200 AD) had no problem with nature changing anything on the earth. Those Muslims who lived before the dawn of science in the West believed that active nature was an office of the God with delegated duties and tasks. For example, Al-Biruni (800 years before Darwin) wrote:  
 
"...when Nature, whose task it is to preserve the species as they are, finds some superfluous substance, which she forms into some shape instead of throwing it away; like wise, animals with imperfect limbs, when Nature does not find the substance by which to complete the form of the animal in conformity with the structure of the species to which it belongs"[11]  
 
In this matter of active nature, Ibn Khaldun wrote:  
 
"...soil becomes plants and plants become animals. This can come about only with the help of living spirit and active nature which has the ability to generate substances and change essences."[12]  
 
Age of the Universe  
 
The West also assumes that Muslims believe in the Judeo-Christian 6,000-year-old earth. For example, Stephen W. Hawking states in his History of Time: "...according to a number of early cosmologies and the Jewish/Christian/Muslim tradition, the Universe started at a finite time and not very distant time in the past."[13] In contrast, Al-Biruni (800 years before Darwin) rejected the young earth doctrine. He wrote:  
 
 
...Again, those with a book of divine revelation, like the Jews, the Christians, and others like the Sabians and Magians, have all agreed about dating events by the Era of the Creation of Mankind, but they differ greatly in their estimation of the duration of era. They have not referred to the Era of the Creation of the World, except in the opening two verses of the Torah, which have the following content but not the exact wording: 'In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form and void, and the spirit of God was moving upon the surface of the waters' (Genesis I: 1, 2). They considered that to be the first day of the week in which the world was created, but that was a period of time which cannot be measured by a day and night, for the cause of these periods is the sun with its rising and setting, and both the sun and the moon were created on the fourth day of the week. How is it possible to imagine that these days are like the days of our reckoning! The Qur'an says: 'A day in the sight of thy Lord is like a thousand years of your reckoning' (Koran 22: 47). In another verse God says: 'In a day the measure of whereof is as fifty thousand years' (Koran 70: 4). Thus it is obvious that we cannot estimate that period with our method of reckoning, and that it is unverifiable since the beginning of creation."[14]  
 
 
Moreover, Al-Biruni states that God initially scattered the celestial bodies and the time between creation and present could be billions of years. He states: 'For it is quite possible that these (celestial) bodies were scattered'when the Creator designed and created them. If you then ask the mathematician as to the length of time, after which they would meet each other in a certain point, or before which they had met each other in that identical point, no blame attaches to him, it he speaks of billions of year.'[15]  
 
Muslims and the 'Deluge'  
 
The Universal Flood of Judeo-Christian faith is not a Muslim doctrine. Muslims, on the other hand, believe it was a localized flood. For example, al Biruni (800 years before Darwin) wrote:  
 
 
"Persians, and great mass of the Magians, deny the Deluge altogether;...In denying the Deluge, the Indians, Chinese, and various nations of the east, concur with them. Some, however, of the Persians admit the fact of the Deluge, but they describe it in a different way from what is described in the books of Prophets. They say partial Deluge occurred in Syria...but did not extend over the whole of then civilized world, and only few nations were drowned in it."[16]  
 
 
Al-Biruni also said that the water level marks on the pyramids suggest that the flood did not reach enough to cover the whole pyramids.  
 
In summary, Islam compels no major conflict between the results of science and the Qur'an. From the time of the Prophet (pbuh), early Muslim scholars believed: (a) nature is an office of God with delegated duties and tasks, and it can make changes within nature itself; (b) the earth is not very young; and, (c) in the evolution of life from minerals to plants, plants to animals and finally the Homo Sapiens emerged from the world of monkeys.  
 
Islam and Advancement of Science.  
 
If the assertion that the Qur'an inhibited science is correct, science should have been dead soon after the advent of Islam and the Qur'an. On the contrary, we see science flourished during the first centuries of Islam. Instead of drowning themselves in ignorance with advent of the Qur'an and Islam, Muslims became masters of Science for centuries. The defining event that provided the foundation for this mastery was Islam and the revelation of the Qur'an. Therefore, I would argue that the Qur'an promoted science. Moreover, Islam was not at the uplifting service for Muslims alone. Islam helped to create the Golden Age of Jews who lived under Muslim rule. Jewish thinker Max I. Dimont states:  
 
 
'The improbable but true tale of a camel driver's establishment of a world empire in the name of Allah, wherein the Jews rose to their Golden Age of creativity, only to be plunged into a Dark Age with the eclipse of the Crescent and the ascent of the Cross.'[17]  
 
 
In contrast to the sentiment echoed by Scott in her review, George Sarton, Will Durant, and Bronowski among others found that the Qur'an promoted science and learning in Islamic societies.  
 
George Sarton, Professor of History at Harvard, wrote:  
 
 
"The Creation of a new civilization, of international and encyclopedic magnitude within less than two centuries something that we can describe but not explain."[18]  
 
 
I do not see any difficulty to explain 'the creation of a new civilization.' We use the following method in biology to explain evolution. If we cannot see many explanations for a phenomenon, then we take the event before the occurrence of the phenomenon to explain it. The only event that happened before the rise of the "new civilization" of Muslims was Islam and the revelation of the Qur'an and creation of Muslim community under guidance of Prophet Muhammad. Therefore, the Qur'an and early Islam promoted science.  
 
Furthermore, Will Durant wrote:  
 
"...Muhammad, unlike most religious reformers, admired and urged the pursuit of knowledge: 'He who leaves his home in search of knowledge walks in the path of God...and ink of a scholar is holier than the blood of a martyr';"[19]  
 
Similarly, J. Bronowski wrote:  
 
 
"Muhammad had been firm that Islam was not to be a religion of miracles; it became in intellectual content a pattern of contemplation and analysis."[20]  
 
 
So it is clear that Historians, scholars, and the text of the Qur'an itself concur that there is nothing intrinsically inimical to science in its pages. On the contrary, much of the Qur'anic scholarship and scripture seems to support the endeavor that we recognize today under the rubric of science.

Dear All, it was refreshing to see such vast information covered above in all the comments. Proven science cant be against Quran as the one who created Laws of Nature has sent his Book. Quran is not a Book of SCIENCE. To understand Quran we might not need help of science. This we can assume with my rational understanding of people who lived 1450 years back who never knew advanced science and research which we are dealing with, yet they understood.( correct me if am wrong here) As far as Darwin’s theory is concerned if we are considering only the most known part of Darwin’s theory of evolution of Human from monkeys its not a proven fact. That’s the reason why still its termed as THEORY. Quran gives and talks about Evolution but not pointing it to human evolution from monkey.  
 
Let me share my 2 cents with my understanding until now…..  
 
Out Sun is 5 billion years old and earth 4.564 billion years. As earth being a part of sun we can imagine temperature of initial debris which got collected together to form so called earth. It took millions of years to cool down and get to a stable environment which can support life. Life started with one single cell which had tendency to multiple on its own. These cells multiplied and subjected to different environment started deviating which is beautifully covered above with explanation of Natural selection. Scientist were wondering where this first cell came from. Our Mullas got to the subject and where scientist stop for a while they start building religion from there on.  
 
All time Greatest break though in Biological science was recently made by scientist ( Dr Craig Venter ) who successfully created a synthetic living cell which can multiply on its own. This makes it clear that young earth created those circumstances which created this first living cell.  
 
Synthetic cell needs to be in kept in a favorable environment in which it will multiply, if that is not provided it might die out.  
 
Monkeys and Human belong to same family, when we say family was it physically formed Apes or those preliminary similar cells.  
 
As far as I know based on research on human existence we got clues that human must be inhabiting on earth since last 40,000 years. Our sun might die in another 5 billion years after burning all its fuel. So Earth if it has got a normal life then might stay for another 4.5 billion years. There might come many advancements in science and discoveries let me just list a few below…  
 
1. Existence of life on other planets.  
2. Existence of 126 parallel universe.  
3. Attaining immortality by Artificial Intelligence and robotics.(theoretically its possible )  
4. Colonizing self sustainable space ships which might travel with no return intensions to find another planet similar to earth.  
5. Achieving super powers in humans like Hulk, Superman, Spiderman etc ( research is on the way with theoretical possibilities few successful experiments in hand)  
6. Advancement in biological science to implant genes of animals who has got tendency to naturally grow parts of body ( example lizard )  
7. With synthetic living cell providing it with favorable environment to multiply and understanding genetic coding some day we might have man made Species ( including Humans)  
 
We got enough time 4.5 billion years and enough potential as humans use less than 10% of the brain which is active. They might learn to utilize 100% active brain someday. Quran says Human has tendency to control entire universe we have not yet reached mars. And can make forces of nature bow to him.  
 
Evolution( In general not limiting it human from monkey) is for sure a fact we can see the result from past. Humans are changing physically in accordance with their life style and environment. As a part of evolution humans physical appearance is changing with chins getting smaller with bigger skulls etc.  
 
Based on few of the above possibilities, I understand that Quran is a book which is independent of time and space. So no proven science and discovery will ever go against Quran. Yes but advancement in science and research will justify and glorify the content of Quran.  
 
Note : Lets keep ourself fit and healthy to see more advancement in all fields and WITNESS glory of Quran with every evolution.  
Thanks,  
Mubashir Syed.

Dear Mubashir you are right.Thanks.

Dear Mubashir Syed,  
 
Thanku for your comments.. did you know that Darwin studied arabic in Oxford and his "theory" was realy the observations of muslim scientists :) in good ol english he knicked it .. I am a most ardent admirer of dr.Gulam Jilani Daar and I would recomend you read his books, including Do Quran in which he tells of how the stages of evelution are discribed in the Quran..  
the obove peice i wrote was from T.o. shanavas's book on evelution and the islamic perspective.. just google his name.. its amazing when you tell an englishman that again the muslim scientists were far advanced and their jaws drop out cos they literaly worship Darwin and cant imagine that the Quran holds such secrets... for me its one more way to call towards the Quran.  
I agree we dont prove Quran by science but the Quran itself calls to study and investigation and it affirms itself again and again on a wide range of subjects.. people have become Muslim on the discriptions of science, the knowledge the Quran has now versus the Bible and Tora..  
I would like to draw your attention to ayahs 6:76 to 6:79, what is Ibrahim rasool Allah doing? he is the scientist (imam ulmobin) who comes to the conclusion that there are laws under which the different heavenly bodies are determined by, hence he comes to the conclusion that there must be something which has produced these laws, A God.. and only one because if there were more there would be caos in the universe..  
As Einstien said, " God does not play dice with the universe".  
We should be proud of the Quran and relay every and each thought it gives.

Dear Maniza, thanks for bringing up more info on Drawin and background behind his theory. You have provided grounds for me to say something which i felt would take my comments out of context if included. To start with let me consider the last sentence from my previous comment. Advancement in science and research will JUSTIFY and Glorify the content of Quran. I think if Muslims have a vision they can get guidance or an heads up from Signs. Quran is not book of science its a book with SIGNS. For example discovery of atom is based on only concern of humans to look whats inside anything. to start with substance and see wats inside......Molecule.....whats inside.......atom......wats inside .....proton, neutron and electron. It might look like a cake walk today but Quran gave a sign to this approach and after this discovery we do see verse/verses which matches approach and atom as well.  
 
To keep and eye( gaze) viosnary work is what i understand/think when Quran appeals to Momins not to let their gaze wayward. But sadly its essence is narrowed down and understood only to a physical gaze of humans towards opposite genders.  
 
Visionary scientific thinkers can get guidance from SIGNS of Quran if their potential and understanding is ahead of time. My concern was not with evolution/darwin theory supported by Quran it was only for exclusive support of human from monkey part which is not yet proven its still a theory and there are chances that it might be wrong.  
 
We have same understanding with different ways of conveying.( correct me if am wrong here). Lets make sure our driving of understanding might not require a REVERSE gear and U turns. And lets not be egoistic if ever we need a U Turn as ultimately Straight path is important but lesser U turns will make drive more smooth.  
 
NOTE : Lets be visionary and live ahead of time so as to make difference in scientific and social arena. ( Bill gates had a vision 30 years back that there will a time when every person will have a computer. His Vision was right which made him worlds richest and a huge benefit to humans.  
 
Thanks,  
Mubashir Syed.

Dear friends,  
 
Aastana.com is indeed on way to achieving its goal much sooner than was expected. With the influx and keen participation of more and more intellectual brains, it has already started establishing itself as an institution of learning in diverse fields, with Quran as a beacon to keep this dedicated community of students within the divinely prescribed dimensions.  
Sincere appreciations and applaud for all the inspiring and academic discussions above.  
 
My humble study of Quran has failed to find a hint about evolution of man from monkeys, apes or any other kind of animals.  
 
Quran believes in evolution, but does not seem to assert transformation from one particular specie to another. The same anomaly has been pointed out in Darwinian theory (If I am right?) and it is called the “missing link”.  
 
I am no student of anthropology and have not read about evolution in detail. But I wonder that in the process of gradual transformation from monkeys/apes to humans, where have disappeared those who must be in the middle stages of monkey and man. I mean why don’t we find those who are still neither monkeys any longer, nor have they become 100% human. I mean those who may be in between the process of evolution and may have been transformed to the extent of, say, 25% or 75% or so!! We observe that monkeys are still 100% monkeys. None of them is seen under evolutionary process to become human. Humans are fully human – none of them is noted traversing his journey towards achieving full human structure. Has the Darwinian evolutionary process stopped taking its course? Have some monkeys become fully humans and others remained behind as fully monkeys? Why? Has that process stopped at a precise time when no monkey had taken a head start towards becoming a human? And has it stopped when no human was still to transform himself 25% more to become a full human?  
Unless these questions are answered, how can one agree with Darwin?  
 
Verse 32/7-9: ALLAH ALLAZI AHSANA KULLA SHAYI’IN KHALAQAHU, WA BADA’A KHALAQAL INSAANA MIN TEEN. THUMMA JA’ALA NASALAHU MIN SULALATIN MIN MAA’IN MAHEEN. THUMMA SAWWAHU WA NAFAKHA FEEHI MIN ROOHIHI WA JA’ALA LAKUM AS SAM’AA WAL ABSAARA WA AL AF’IDAH. QALIILAN MA TASHKUROON.  
 
“It is HE WHO perfected the Creation of everything; And HE initiated the Creation of Man from clay; Then HE devised His Posterity out of the extract of a liquid disdained. Then HE proportioned / fine-tuned him and infused in him from His Rooh by affording you with hearing, vision and intellect. Few of you derive full benefits from those faculties.”  
 
The points very obvious in the above decree:  
Man’s Creation was initiated as Man, not as another specie; So man was the same specie from the beginning; he was gradually proportioned / fine tuned WITHIN THAT SPECIE, as a man( not monkey) ; and was finally granted, beside other usual qualities, the intellect.  
 
So friends, I take it simply as EVOLUTION WITHIN THE SPECIE! I might be wrong!  
 
Kindly go through 40/67, 25/54, 6/2, 32/7, 37/11, 23/12, 55/14, 15/26, everywhere you will find : He created you or Insaan from clay/water/mud/ etc. etc. Different stages of evolution and basic ingredients of formulation, but no hint of a transformation from one specie to another.  
 
God bless you all.

Dear Aurangzaib: you are right i have same inference as yours, in the light of verses you quoted in comments regarding theory of evolution.

Comments by: Maniza On 01 October 2010
Asalam and blessings dear brothers,  
I am sorry if I was misunderstood, for me the evelution of a citrus tree and an apple tree is the same, they are too different fruits but still trees, and I think maybe Darwin also misunderstood the Muslims when they said man had evolved.. but for me the Quran indicates that ALl life started from water, then swamp and so on..  
It is just how we understand the Quran and it is not fixed for any time or space so the discription of life and its initiation, evelution can be understood from the Quran. Still we can have our own understandings, and T.O.Shanavas has written a good book on the islamic perspective on evelution which I recomend we go through, especialy for me because I have contact with a lot of people here in europe who worship Darwin,  
http://metanexus.net/Magazine/tabid/68/id/7668/Default.aspx  
it is inspiring for me and gives me more knowledge into the world and the Quran and a basis for calling to the quran. There are many more ayahs in the Quran, Aurangzaib bhai so we need to collect the all together, and as they say there will always be a more and deeper understanding of the Quran as time goes by.

Sis Maniza,  
 
I am in full agreement with you that "there will always be a more and deeper understanding of the Quran as time goes by".  
 
As for Darwin, he and his followers cannot show me specimens of the intermediary stages of evolution from Monkeys/apes to humans. As far as my very simplistic thinking is concerned, I see whole monkeys and whole humans, no creature in between these two perfect stages, to show that an evolution between the species is or was or has been going on. While they claim it is going on.  
 
However, kindly do quote some verses from Quran which show a close or remote linkage of human evolution with a specie of animals for our enlightenment.  
 
West has a peculiar psychology. Their mutiny against the brutal suppression of the Church was initiated and spurred by their intellectuals, who succeeded in the end in overthrowing the Church's supremacy. Owing to this background, they tend to believe forthwith anything their intellectuals have written down that negates the philosophy of religion and encourages godlessness. Their firm belief on Darwinism is also a manifestation of that psychology. In spite of a total absence of "the Missing Link", they just go on believing in evolution from animals to humans.  
 
God bless you.

Dear bhai,  
I will have to go back and find the relevant research. I am going to read t.o shanavas's book then will get back to you. but it does not mean we dont have the fossils so "it did not happen" :) as we know from everyday life, bones buried in the earth decay.  
There is an aya in the Quran which I cannot give the reference too, but scientists agree it refers to evelutionary stages of man, "and it is not difficult for Us that we remove you with a better nation". for me it also implies a nation will defeat a weaker nation who is not strong on the path of Allah, but it can also mean the evelution of man..  
another ayah which i cannot refer to is how God created man in the womb as was his FIRST STAGE of evelution, meaning we see the embryo, a glob of clot , then a fishlike apperence and so on.. such ayahs are given as reference by scholars who beleive in evelution as from Quran.  
InshaAllah will write again on the subject when I have done more research.

Dear All,  
 
Please allow me to say a few words in the context of evolution and Quran.  
 
1. Very rightly brought out by all of you that evolution is a fact. Whether it took place with in species or  
otherwise does not matter at all. Whether missing link is found between monkeys and humans or not,  
but certainly it was evolution. We are considering monkeys as animals and humans as something totally  
different specie. I think humans have much of animals and an evolving specie from animals to humans.  
Evolution may not be necessarily the same as we think it ought to be.  
 
2.Quran is not a book of science, everyone admits here but I do not understand why than we are trying  
to check scientific discoveries from Quran?? At the most we should say that Quran demands scientific  
inquiry in to things. Advocates scientific approach to life.  
 
3. I sometimes feel that Prophet Muhammad might have been social scientist. Darwin was prophet of biology,  
similarly prophet of physics,chemistry, math and so on. All were from God. All manifestation of God. You all  
are little prophets of your own fields. Prophet should be a person who prophesies. Theories are prophesies.  
Darwin gave a theory.  
 
JUG MAI AA KER IDHER UDHER DAIKHA TOO HE AYA NAZER JIDDER DAIKHA.  
 
4. I am not a scholar at all. I neither know Arabic nor proud of any other knowledge. I only think and that too  
in a very UN conventional way. Always differently in opposite directions. FORGIVE ME IF I AM WRONG, JUST  
TOLERATE and do not impose any fatwa I am afraid and sick of so called Muslim society who do not allow  
thinking. It is hell my dear. You talk of evolution, you find humans living here??? I think this is the missing link,  
you want to find between monkeys and humans. These half animals have put a person behind bars  
(from Jhelum) who only said Prophet did not break Moon in to two pieces.  
 
YAIHE KAHA THA MERI ANKH DAIKH SAKTI HAI - TO MOOJ PER TOOT PERA SARA SHEHRAY NABEENA.  
 
HOI JISS KI KHOODI PEHLAY NAMOODAR  
 
WOHE MEHDI WOHE AKHER ZAMANI.  
 
5. I think this "tkudus mokudus" is the main problem. Religion thrives on this concept. Prophets were  
humans, intelligent, rather genius also. Genius people will always be their in human societies.

Dear friends,  
 
Nobody here is against Evolution.  
No one is against Science or Scientific inquiries into the origin of things.  
No one has a particular dislike of Darwin or other anthropologists.  
We are not taking Quran as a book of scientific discoveries or anthropological revelations.  
We do tend to take as final the basic hints Quran is giving in diverse fields just to prove its divine/authentic status.  
It does give hints about evolutionary stages of man. Those hints, as explained until now, negate the Darwinian Theory.  
The facts on earth do not give proof enough to surrender to Drawin's standpoint.  
There has not yet been found a specimen testifying to the "CONTINUED EVOLUTIONARY PROCESS" FROM MONKEYS TO MAN".  
 
The oldest fossil of MAN dug out until now was 1.5 million years old. That too was still a man similar to the modern one with respect to 95 (or so) percent of the structure. No traces of the remnants of Monkey were noticed.  
 
Let us wait for Sis Maniza's ongoing research on the topic.  
 
Thanks.

dear brothers and sisters,  
I agree with brother momin, but i would like to point out the fact that Quran IS a book of science, pysics,biology,chemistry, social sciences and so forth, muslims scientists like ibn e sana wrote on sociology, papers which are still taut in universitys over the world. A guidance to humainty is also a science which teaches humanity how to subjugate itself into the laws of God as all other living things are doing sajda to and benefitting from.  
As you say brother momin we are animals if we lose the Divine System of Life, if we do not uphold it. God again and again asks us to study the earth and the heavens.. that is science. the non muslims have achieved things and are doing so day by day, whereas the muslims are stuck in the 600 century.  
I was intrigued by your comment on the man from jhelum, please tell me more because I myself was born in jhelum and have close ties to the town.

Dear Momin, with due respect to your emotions may i humble disagree with your comments. I think its better to see what we can gain in long term than what we lost in short term.  
 
Dont you think its better to use our resources to make sure there should be no instances as u discussed in future than getting exhausted in handling only current situation? Efforts taken to solve issue from root may help in eradicating many similar situations in future.  
 
I am sure all powerful nations in history has evolved gradually with strategic planning over a period of time than rushing into things with aggressive emotional approach. Please correct me if am wrong here.

Dear Mubashir Syed,  
 
How can one disagree with your reasonable approach. Although they have hit bottom rock.  
incorrigible s. Nations rise with fresh philosophies.  
See how Western nations rose. Study age of renaissance. How china rose? Reformers of religion end  
up in formation of a new sect no matter how reasonable they may be. Further divisions more polarization.  
This nation will not rise with linguists and scholars but with people having fresh and original ideas.  
OK, I wrote that probably because I am not a scholar or a linguist. May Be I am jealous of scholars any way,  
 
Dear Mubasir Syed I am not egoistic please be frank in criticism. I do criticism myself also.  
Through criticism one learns. so we AGREE TO DISAGREE.  
 
You wrote,  
 
"I think its better to see what we can gain in long term than what we lost in short term. "  
 
Do we have time for long term planning? We are left with short term, so think of short term planning.

Dear momin,  
 
I am also aware of incidents you mentioned. They are indeed shameful. Your concern is everyone's  
concern here, I suppose.  
Do not you think aastana is presenting absolutely original ideas??? Please keep in touch you will soon  
understand efforts made here. Keep giving your input.

Dear Momin, my apologies to you if I sounded like a critic, there is no intension to hurt any feeling at any moment of time.  
 
Momin : Do we have time for long term planning? We are left with short term, so think of short term planning.  
 
Mubashir : When we say time period its always relative. Yes we are left with very short time if we consider to see and benefit bounties of ideal socio-economic system in our life time. But we got ample time to establish it over period of time for next generations to reap the bounties. Isn’t it better late than never ?  
 
Nation is built with more and more strong(skilled) individuals in various domains. Individual enhancement of people who got to understanding of real concept of Islam is noticeable. I personally witnessed people who has risen with skills in little time when compared to skills they possessed before understanding real concept.  
 
Newton, Einstein, Edison, Bell, etc did their part and future generations got an advanced life. Not sure if my comment makes sense just wanted to put my thought over the concern.  
 
Note : Lets do things with our current skills and power, there is no point in applying for engineering job while studying in class 4th.  
 
Thanks,  
Mubashir Syed.

Dear Mubashir Syed,  
 
Thoughts are reflections of one"s personality. Your thoughts are emanating from a person with qualities  
of head and heart. I feel very comfortable while communicating with you. You haven't hurt me at all.  
 
Yai baja k aib hai mai kushi yai baja kai peena haram hai.  
Mager ab sawal yai aa pera k tumaray hath mai jam hai.  
 
 
I keep writing what ever comes in my mind UN-censored and will keep doing so till you have patience to  
tolerate me. I agree with what you have written above.  
 
I do not have liking for scholars, you know why? I found a discussion between Bob, Aurangzeb and Doctor  
Shabbir on aastana. I was astonished how scholars were fighting for their ego. No love, no sincerity, no rational approach. I do not blame every participant. But I could only place my hand on my heart while reading posts of  
scholar Dctor Shabbir.  
 
My dear love is the secret of life. Scholars lack love. they claim so but do not know what it is. Love is sincerety  
sacrifice, honesty and respect. Scholars are usually subjective in their approach. I do not consider Doctor  
Qamer a scholar. He seems to me a creative person with original thinking. It seems he will change everything.

Giving UN-censored comments might not help in getting to logical end in a smooth pattern as sometimes it deviates the Agenda. Anyways thats just my thought. Any approach should not matter unless it hurts any feelings.  
 
Keep smiling, enhancing till all your skills are utilized for achieving a better tomorrow for humanity.

Dear Mubashir Syed,  
 
Thoughts keep passing through one's mind like traffic passing over a road or a bridge.  
This traffic keep changing. Train of thoughts also keep changing. I just want to show all thoughts to a person  
like you to put them to test of reason in order to up grade them and find their credibility.  
 
We were talking about human evolution. A thought came to my mind and I want to express it to you  
for proper scrutiny. How we were born, we are asking from God. But I feel god took birth in human  
brain than started growing like a child until we started looking towards him for solving our problems.  
The idea of God has also evolved, god is also growing and passing through evolutionary process.The  
birth of God is in fact human search for his own identity/reality.  
 
You must have read questions of Mr Pervez. See his desire for everlasting life. This is the thinking  
which was origin of religion and birth of god. gods and humans all have evolved. SORRY if my such  
thought hurts you. Brother Pervez, I am in no way disliking your desire, in fact you are representing a popular  
impulse of human race.  
 
god conceived by human brain can never be the same for ever,because humans are evolving so will god.  
 
Thanks brother Aurangzeb for telling me all this,  
 
Nobody here is against Evolution.  
No one is against Science or Scientific inquiries into the origin of things.  
No one has a particular dislike of Darwin or other anthropologists.  
We are not taking Quran as a book of scientific discoveries or anthropological revelations.

Dear brothers,  
The renaissance hmm, for me it was the muslims who were the real reason for the emergence of thought and science in europe, they were the catalysts, they took the teachings of the Greeks, translated them and gave their own thoughts to the classical masters, they in themselves becoming Great Masters, all of their teachings based on the Quran, God Almighty urging them to discover for themselves what He had created for them.  
 
I remember in school in england being taught that there were only the dark ages before the renaissance, now I know the period between the dark ages and the renaissance, 500 to 700 years, which it is impossible for the europians to aknowledge was infact the golden years of Islam, its scienctists and philosphers.  
 
The last muslim whom they were going to award the nobel prize in philosophy to was in fact Ullama Mashraqi, but that was too hard to swallow, guess why, because it was on the Quran and its philosophy, 1929.  
Remember that Benjamin Disraeli took the Quran, raised it high in parliment and declared, "this is Book to be aware of"........................ maybe just rumors :)  
two good reads:-

Dear Mubashir Syed,  
 
Thanks so much for inviting me on your e-mail. I will definitely contact you at appropriate time, but  
I would like to keep discussing with you on the blog so that other may benefit. You are not childish but  
you are child like. Everyone should be child like not childish.  
 
Little about me, I am an illiterate person because I do not think I am using even 1% of my brain. I am a  
Muslim and you know how low our level of thinking is. This is not true for everyone but for majority it may be  
true. At least I know what I do not know.I am discussing my thoughts with no intention to convince you,because  
I know my weaknesses,I may be wrong.  
 
You said,  
Dear Momin, " God did not create Humans but Humans created God " this is very famous  
saying with rational thinkers"  
 
Dear Mubashir, Prophets were also rational people. Quran only discusses life before death not  
after death. What do they meant by God when they always talked about laws.Can we conceive laws  
independently in operation? or God and laws might be one and the same thing and it was only name  
given to nature by them? Can prophets be also atheists like you find rational persons now also?The  
idea of God is not conceivable. You reject idea of personal God to whom mullah says, Prophet went  
in heavens on an appointment for dialog for namaz, roza, and to see paradise and hell. It is rejection  
of personal God. So this is exactly what rational people say. Isn't it more realistic to be rational? If any  
book is rational it will always be accepted by rational people. Believing in an idea not conceivable or  
demanding to believe in such an idea doesn't seems to be rational approach.

Salam,  
 
There is no conflict between Revelation and reason: rather they supplement each other. Iman in Revelation and reason together enrich life and make it fruitful, provided each keeps to its own proper sphere. Iman energises reason and reason orientates Iman to concrete reality. Without either life would be impoverished. Reason without Iman is like a well-constructed machine which is not geared to a motor, while Iman without reason is only a blind force. The glorious periods in human history were characterised by a robust Iman and an active reason. Prof. Whitehead has rightly remarked:  
 
I think it is appropriate to go through this analysis by one of great thinker of Islam G A PERVEZ.  
Please put your thoughts.  
 
In the Qur'an, human reason is repeatedly extolled. As already stated, the birth of reason in man is referred to as marking a "new creation." It is clearly stated that even Divine Revelation is not to be, accepted unquestioningly and uncritically. Man is exhorted to ponder and reflect over it and interpret it in the light of his reason. "Will they not ponder over the Qur'an?" (4:82). Men who find thinking irksome are described in these words :  
 
These are they whom God's Law of Retribution has deprived (as a result of their own doing) of the blessings of life and has made them deaf and has blinded their eyes. Will they not then meditate on the Qur'an or there are locks on their hearts (47 : 23-24).  
 
The Qur'an appeals to man's reason and understanding. Its teaching is couched in a language which is lucid and intelligible. "Thus God makes plain to you His Revelations that haply you may reflect" (2 : 219). The great truth to be apprehended by man is that he is the architect of his fate so that what he is in this world and what he will be in the Hereafter depend solely on his own actions. Good acts necessarily elevate him and bad actions inevitably degrade him. His welfare and misery are the result of his own deeds. He cannot shift his responsibility to others.  
 
The Qur'an insists that even success in war depends on the right use of reason. It is generally believed that an army which is inspired with courage and fired with zeal is sure to win. The Qur'an claims that victory falls to the lot of men who remain cool and collected in the presence of danger and whose thinking is not clouded by passion. A hundred such men, the believers, are said to be a match for a thousand unbelievers who are swayed by passion, because they are, as the Qur’an puts it, "a folk without understanding" (8 : 65).  
 
It is clear that the Qur'an assigns an important role to reason in the life of man. The Nabi is enjoined not to demand blind obedience from men but to exhort them to think and ponder. The following verse leaves no room for doubt that the Qur’an encourages and approves of independent thinking :  
 
Say, I exhort you unto one thing. And what is that one thing ? It is that "ye awake, for Allali's sake by twos and singly. And then, reflect" (34 : 46) .  
 
The Qur'an expects man to think and use his power of understanding. If he does this, he will be sure to follow the right path. The point to bear in mind is that the path which leads to success, that is eligibility for a higher plane of existence, can be discovered and followed only with the combined help of reason and revelation. These sources of guidance are supplementary to each other. If they are kept within their proper spheres, there will be no conflict between them. The Rasul, therefore, is bidden to say :  
 
This is my way. My invitation to you to follow Allah's path is based on reason and insight—mine as well as of those who follow me (12 : 108).  
 
The Qur'an challenges the opponents of Islam to produce arguments in support of their contention :  
 
Ask them, (O Rasul) Bring your proofs if you are truthful (2:111).  
 
They are admonished when they argue about things of which they have no knowledge:  
 
Why, therefore, do you wrangle concerning that about which you have no knowledge ? (3: 66).  
 
Arguing about things of which we have no knowledge leads nowhere. The Qur'an asks us to eschew such unprofitable disputes:  
 
Do not pursue that whereof you have no knowledge. Verily, the hearing and sight, and the heart, each of these will be asked (17:36).  
 
The Qur'an lays stress on the value of correct knowledge and advises us to accept it and act upon it. All else is dismissed as mere guess work which is far from being a trustworthy guide to action. As the Qur'an says: "A guess can never take the place of truth" (53: 28). As rational beings, it is our duty not to stop till we have achieved correct knowledge. To be content with a mere "guess" is to denounce or abdicate our rationality, and to act upon it is to risk self-fulfillment.  
 
The Qur'an gives a sketch of the process of knowing, so far as it is germane to its purpose, which is both scientific and ethical. The process is begun by the activity of the senses, which furnish the raw material of knowledge. The next stage is that of attending when the mind addresses itself to the material reaching it. This is the stage of perceptual knowledge. The sense data are referred to external objects and events and their objective meaning is grasped. In the third stage, through the processes of analysis, synthesis, abstraction and generalisation, the material is converted into knowledge of varying degrees of generality. The final stage is that of comprehension in which the new knowledge is placed and viewed in the context of the whole of human knowledge and experience, and its meaning for human life is assessed. The Qur'an exhorts men to aim at this deeper understanding of the meaning of the Nabi's words, whenever he speaks to them. It denounces those who fail to make this attempt and stop at the first or second stage, being content with imperfect knowledge:  
 
And you may see them looking towards you, but they see not (7:198).  
 
These were people who appeared to be looking intently at the Nabi, and listening to him, but their mind was making no effort to grasp the sense of his words and relate it meaningfully to their lives. The Qur'an makes an important distinction between "nazar" and "basar." Nazar refers to the fact of passively receiving certain visual stimuli. Basar is insight, the grasping of the essential meaning of the thing of which the visual stimuli are mere signs. The same distinction applies to other senses, such as hearing, etc:  
 
And of them are some who hearken to thee but will thou make the deaf to hear although they have no senses (10 : 42).  
 
What the Qur'an is driving at is that a man whose mind is clouded with prejudices and preconceptions, will not be able to apprehend the truth, even though it stares him in the face. To apprehend it, he must approach it with an open and unbiased mind, must concentrate his attention upon it and must strive to comprehend it in relation to his genuine knowledge and authentic experience. In effect, the Qur'an recommends them an aposteriori approach to Revelation. By implication, the apriori approach is not favoured. The Qur'an's position on this question may be summarised in this way: rid your mind of all preconceived ill-founded notions. Give close and earnest attention to the Revelation and have full confidence (Iman) in it. Relate the Revelation to the well-established facts of human experience. Project your findings into the future as far as your reason can take you along the high-roads lit by Revelation. Enrich your experience by the experience you have yet to experience. And, in the new vistas and the widened horizons that open up before you, identify the stars of your destiny and address yourself to the problems of life at hand. If you approach Revelation in a proper frame of mind, making full use of the powers with which you are equipped—reason and hope and charity—you can apprehend the truth enshrined in it, and guided by it, can march forward to the glorious destiny that awaits you. But you must deliberately, and of your own free will, choose the path which is pointed out. God could have compelled you to be good if He had wanted. But such goodness would have had no value. Only goodness that you acquire through your own efforts has value. You are free to choose, and if you use your faculties aright, you will make a proper choice.  
 
This, in brief, is the advice that the Qur'an offers to man. It is reiterated in numerous verses. When the Nabi grew worried that people did not pay attention to his words and did not try to understand them, he was admonished in this way :  
 
If Allah willed, all who are on the earth would have believed (in Him). Would thou (Muhammad) compel men until they are believers? (10: 99).  
 
To understand the Qur'an or, for that matter, and other revealed book, it is not enough to have mastered its language. A man may be proficient in the Arabic language and yet the meaning of the Qur'an may elude him. He should approach the Book with a receptive mind free from preconceived ideas and notions, prejudice and bias. He should be serious about human life and the universe in which we live, and should have an intense consciousness of participation in a purposeful cosmic process. He should also be anxious to guard against pitfalls in the of way of life and to steer clear of the obstacles which hinder his progress. These are, according to the Qur’an, the essential pre-requisites for understanding the Book. To those who do not approach it in this way, it remains a sealed book. In the stories of the Anbiya - prophets recounted in the Qur'an- we are told how those who were not perceptive and alive were only bewildered when they listened to their (Anbiya's) passionate exhortations. Some of them frankly confessed that they found their words unintelligible:  
 
O’ Shu’aib! We understand not much what you say (11 : 91).  
 
The Nabi (Muhammad—P) too, often came across people who were completely unresponsive to his words, while others were stirred, who believed and were prepared to listen. In dealing with the former, he occasionally grew impatient and felt frustrated. The Qur'an counsels him to be patient, forgiving and tolerant. It warns him against the temptation to impose his views on them:  
 
Haply you will kill yourself with grief—if they believe not in this message (18: 6).  
 
The Nabi is assured that if he has placed the true view, in simple terms, before the people, he has fulfilled his mission. More than this is not expected of him. It is not his duty to see that the view is accepted by the people. His duty is only to tell them which is the right path and which the wrong one and to acquaint them with the consequences of following the one or the other. They are free. to choose for themselves. God does not want to force people to accept His guidance. He has endowed man with the ponvers of understanding, judgment and free, choice. If man makes use of these powers he can understand the Revelation and can profit by the guidance offered therein. He must bear the consequences of his choice, whether they are pleasant or unpleasant.  
 
To sum up, there is no conflict between Revelation and reason: rather they supplement each other. Iman in Revelation and reason together enrich life and make it fruitful, provided each keeps to its own proper sphere. Iman energises reason and reason orientates Iman to concrete reality. Without either life would be impoverished. Reason without Iman is like a well-constructed machine which is not geared to a motor, while Iman without reason is only a blind force. The glorious periods in human history were characterised by a robust Iman and an active reason. Prof. Whitehead has rightly remarked:

Dear Momin,  
 
Your comment of October 4, 2010:  
 
""Mr Aurangzeb talks about atrocities of Americans and UNO but forgets what is going on here. I know he  
will hold American responsible for this also. I have read his many posts here on aastana.""  
 
I have not forgotten what is going on here, my dear. You would hardly find myself praising "us" versus the atrocities of "others". It is only that our local incidents are always taking a particular pattern, the pattern of dead people. It is our routine life and not worth displaying at all. When I talk about U.S., it is about global players of power, capital and intrigue whose evil designs affect the humanity at large.  
 
But in another sense, the U.S. as well as the former world power, the British may well be responsible for our present apathetic and cruel mindset. You know how? They are the ones appointing our vessel-rulers. As their 300 years old colonial policy dictates, they would only appoint those with the meanest and the dirtiest characters. Those characters in turn discharge the duties entrusted by their Masters, by ruining the characters of their subjects (us) so that no hope or spirit of a resurrection remains alive within the slave nations. They keep us poor, hungry, illiterate, craving for peace and security and deprived of self respect and scope of progress. Our frustration then carries us towards violence.  
 
God bless you.

Dear Aurangzeb,  
 
I know you are one of the scholar here. I may be wrong in your eyes. But I feel life is competitive.  
you have written,  
 
." When I talk about U.S., it is about global players of power, capital and intrigue whose evil designs affect the  
humanity at large"  
 
May I ask you why are they weak against whom US is intriguing? Weakness is also an evil in my eyes.  
World is not full of evils because evil people are too many. It is because good people if any are passive.  
 
"Evil designs" is a relative term you used. They say we Muslims have evil designs.  
 
"Hai jooremay zaeefi ki saza mergay mafajat."  
 
So what if deers in the jungle complain about evil designs of Lions. Life will go on as it is.

Who whispered in your ears that you are facing "scholars" here? You have many times used this word here for some mortals and earthlings, who are just students, trying to learn the truth and reality of their existence.  
 
Haven't you driven the discussion towards irrelevant direction with the power of your verbal logic?  
 
I had only asked my dear, from which of my comment you derived the illusion that I praise, or take sides with, our so-called Muslim folks...... and what gave you the impression that I am biased towards U.S. or Western powers in general. (This was the topic and my comment in your reply.)  
 
Your new comments:  
 
"Evil designs" is a relative term you used. They say we Muslims have evil designs.  
"Hai jooremay zaeefi ki saza mergay mafajat."  
So what if deers in the jungle complain about evil designs of Lions. Life will go on as it is.""  
 
Not only there are divine values and principles present in all religious doctrines that can easily decide which designs are evil and which ones good,,,,,, but also jungle laws do not apply upon humanity. If they did, humans would be called animals.  
 
Humanity is not to punish the Weak (Z'aeef), but to help, support, protect and take them along in the journey of life.  
 
Your reflection might be assessed as a cruel and heartless representation of the present appalling situation the humanity is facing. It shows no concern at all.  
 
This is just as I see it from your words. I may be wrong. You might like to clarify. Welcome. But please stick with the topic for the sake of arriving at a conclusion.  
 
God bless you.

Respected Br Aurangzaib You are perfectly right in my view .  
 
”Not only there are divine values and principles present in all religious doctrines that can easily decide which designs are evil and which ones good,,,,,, but also jungle laws do not apply upon humanity. If they did, humans would be called animals"  
 
Some of the facts to prove your argument is right.  
 
The natural liberty of man is to be free from any superior power on Earth, and not to be under the will or legislative authority of man, but only to have the law of nature for his rule.  
Samuel Adams  
 
Only by establishing military supremacy were the European and North American colonizers able to eliminate the crafts and industries of Third World peoples, control their markets, extort tribute, destroy their villages, steal their lands and natural resources, enslave their labor, and accumulate vast wealth.  
 
The US government has given over $200 billion dollars in military aid to some eighty nations since World War II. US weapons sales abroad have grown to about $10 billion a year and compose about 70 percent of all arms sold on the international marketplace. Two million foreign troops and hundreds of thousands of foreign police and paramilitary have been trained, equipped, and financed by the United States. Their purpose has not been to defend their countries from outside invasion but to protect foreign investors and the ruling elites of the recipient nations from their own potentially rebellious populations.  
 
Between 1831 and 1891, US armed forces -- usually the Marines -- invaded Mexico, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Panama, Colombia, Nicaragua, Uruguay, Brazil, Haiti, Argentina, and Chile a total of thirty-one times, a fact not many of us are informed about in school. The Marines intermittently occupied Nicaragua form 1909 to 1933, Mexico from 1914 to 1919, and Panama from 1903 to 1914. To "restore order" the Marines occupied Haiti from 1915 to 1934, killing over two thousand Haitians who resisted "pacification".  
 
US multilateral corporations (along with the firms of other advanced nations) control most of the wealth, labor, and markets of Asia, Africa, and Latin America. This control does much to mal develop the weaker nations in ways that are severely detrimental to the life chances of the common people of the Third World. The existing class structure of the Third World, so suitable to capital accumulation, must be protected from popular resistance. Through the generous application of force and terror and by cultural and political domination, the imperialist nation directly -- or through a client-state apparatus -- maintains "stability" and prevents changes in the class structure of other nations.  
 
The goal of a good society is to structure social relations and institutions so that cooperative and generous impulses are rewarded, while antisocial (Power full nations such as US) ones are discouraged. The problem with them is that it best rewards the worst part of us: ruthless, competitive, conniving, opportunistic, acquisitive drives, giving little reward and often much punishment -- or at least much handicap -- to honesty, compassion, fair play, many forms of hard work, love of justice, and a concern for those in need.  
 
The conquistador is inclined to put a swift sword to the natives; the capitalist finds it more profitable to work them slowly to death.  
 
Unfortunate thing is if one looks into the genealogies of many "old families", in Pakistan one discovers episodes of gun running, opium trading, falsified land claims, sales of shoddy and unsafe goods, public funds used for private speculations, crooked deals in government bonds and vouchers, and payoffs for political favors. One finds fortunes built on slave labor, indentured labor, female labor, child labor, and scab labor -- backed by the lethal force of gun thugs and militia. "Old money" is often little more than dirty money by several generations of possession  
 
"I dream that someday the United States will be on the side of the peasants in some civil war. I dream that we will be the ones who will help the poor overthrow the rich, who will talk about land reform and education and health facilities for everyone,  
 
The US government is usually on the wrong side against the poor and downtrodden, because the wrong side is the right side, given the class interests upon which the [US] policy is fixed.  
 
"I believe that if US would keep their dirty, bloody, dollar-soaked fingers out of the business of these nations so full of depressed, exploited people, they will arrive at a solution of their own.... And if unfortunately their revolution must be of the violent type because the "haves" refuse to share with the "have-nots" by any peaceful method, at least what they get will be their own, and not the American style, which they don't want and above all don't want crammed down their throats by Americans."  
 
It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.  
Samuel Adams

Ibn Khaldun :  
 
"...[M]an belongs to the genus of animals and that God distinguished from them by ability to  
think, which He (Allah) gave man and through which man is able to arrange his actions in an  
orderly manner."  
 
 
"One should look at the world of creation. It started out from the minerals and progressed, in  
an ingenious, gradual manner to plants and animals...The animal world then widens, its  
species become numerous, and, in a gradual process of creation, it finally leads to man, who is  
able to think and reflect. The higher stage of man is reached from the world of monkeys, in  
which both sagacity and perception are found, but which has not reached the stage of actual  
reflection and thinking. At this point we come to the first stage of man after the world of  
monkeys. This is as far as our physical observation extends."  
 
(Khaldun, Ibn. The Muqaddimah. Trans. by Franz Rosenthal. Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1967 & Ibid.)  
 
Stephen W. Hawking  
 
"...according to a number of early cosmologies and the Jewish/Christian/Muslim tradition, the Universe started at a finite time and not very distant time in the past."(Hawking, Stephen W. A Brief History of Time. New York: Bantam Books, p.7.)  
 
Al-Biruni  
 
...Again, those with a book of divine revelation, like the Jews, the Christians, and others like  
the Sabians and Magians, have all agreed about dating events by the Era of the Creation of  
Mankind, but they differ greatly in their estimation of the duration of era. They have not  
referred to the Era of the Creation of the World, except in the opening two verses of the  
Torah, which have the following content but not the exact wording:  
 
 
'In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form and void, and the spirit of  
God was moving upon the surface of the waters' (Genesis I: 1, 2). They considered that to be  
the first day of the week in which the world was created, but that was a period of time which  
cannot be measured by a day and night, for the cause of these periods is the sun with its rising  
and setting, and both the sun and the moon were created on the fourth day of the week. How  
is it possible to imagine that these days are like the days of our reckoning!  
 
The Qur'an says: 'A day in the sight of thy Lord is like a thousand years of your reckoning' (Koran 22: 47).  
 
In another verse God says:  
 
'In a day the measure of whereof is as fifty thousand years' ( 70: 4).  
 
Thus it is obvious that we cannot estimate that period with our method of reckoning,  
and that it is unverifiable since the beginning of creation."Biruni, Al.(1000 A.D.)

Dear Bob and sister Maniza,  
 
I appreciate your enjoyable and objective approach to understand and analyze  
any problem and beautifully coming to its logical end. Appreciating facts is the first stage of learning and  
than deducing your opinion from facts is the real art. Ulemas and Mushaikhs lack this quality but write  
worthless literature and save their ego with subjective approach. I am here because of you people.

Dear Brother Abdullah Bashoeb,  
 
I am indebted to you for timely presentation of relevant data on U.S.' merciless manipulation of the world's weaker nations.  
 
It promptly pacified brother Momin's probing mind. He would definitely have taken me to task proving those atrocities. But thanks to your hard work, I did not have to shuffle through the supporting material.  
 
We have a brother member named SHARIQ, who took the U.S. Marines as well as U.S. mercenaries like Blackwater/Xe, etc. as PEACE PROVIDERS. I hope brother Shariq is going through your valuable data on U.S. evil designs. That would make things easy for him to understand.  
 
Dear Brother Momin,  
 
Thanks for your understanding.  
BUT...........you still used the words "Scholar" (which makes me ashamed of myself)........and "ego".  
 
I would just reiterate my stand that we ordinary mortals cannot be called scholars. Yes, we have gathered in this forum to learn under the leadership of our Scholar Teacher, viz., Dr. Qamar Zaman. He is the one deeply involved in research work into our Divine Scripture; and he alone deserves the attribute of a Scholar.  
 
AND to defend one's standpoint with proper logic and argumentation does not reflect an EGO. We all here are doing the same, but thanks God, are not egoistic.  
 
God bless you.  

Comments by: moazzam On 08 October 2010
Dear all: as brother Aurangzaib given his input to the solution of the topic under debate,let me put my humble opinions at the same.Aurangzaib said that "  
Nobody here is against Evolution.  
No one is against Science or Scientific inquiries into the origin of things.  
No one has a particular dislike of Darwin or other anthropologists.  
We are not taking Quran as a book of scientific discoveries or anthropological revelations.  
We do tend to take as final the basic hints Quran is giving in diverse fields just to prove its divine/authentic status.  
It does give hints about evolutionary stages of man. Those hints, as explained until now, negate the Darwinian Theory.  
The facts on earth do not give proof enough to surrender to Drawin's standpoint.  
There has not yet been found a specimen testifying to the "CONTINUED EVOLUTIONARY PROCESS" FROM MONKEYS TO MAN ".Brother Aurangzaib is absolutely right. The process of evolution in each and every living kingdom has been started from the single cell of its own kind,this process had been started in the water as Quran says WAJAALNAHA MINAL MAA KULLA SHAEINN HAYYAH. The human being was a SINGLE Cell-at its initial stage ,started evolution toward its own specified shape see the verse 4/1,6/2,23/12,32/7,37/11,37/71,and same process might be adopted for all living things.The DNA test of different animal kingdom will reveal this mystery.

Dear Aurangzeb,  
You wrote,  
 
'It promptly pacified brother Momin's probing mind. He would definitely have taken me to task proving those atrocities. But thanks to your hard work, I did not have to shuffle through the supporting material"  
 
Either I couldn't make you understand or you failed to grasp. I was discussing evolution which is merciless  
as we observe practically.Let me clarify, I do not advocate atrocities by anyone nor support them. But the fact is  
that people who do not evolve in the field become weak and are mercilessly punished by stronger nations.  
Weakness and strength comes through natural laws. Nations have to earn strength not beg for it. I have seen  
wars and atrocities,in such situations you feel there is no God with mercy. I know a soldier who became atheist  
after he saw atrocities in war. We may weep, cry do anything but we will be punished by US, rather we are being  
punished. God is not on our side. Mullah may say what he pleases. Where are the red Indians today?What are  
we doing? have we learn t? except blaming the whole world. No we are bad. We are failing in the test of evolution  
and nature will get us eliminated by anyone. What happened to doctor Afia? She is daughter of Muslim  
nation. OK, I agree with Brother Aurangzeb US is to be blamed. But can anyone get her released? NO.  
We Muslims only crib and weep like an old widow since centuries. Jews and Christians have done this  
done that. Changed our salath into namaz and soam into roza and Muslims were sitting on their haunches  
waiting for Allah or Doctor Qamer to tell them what was wrong with them. We deserve what is happening  
with us according to natural law. How to Evert?  
 
 
Secondly, Scholars( ulema and mushaikh) are egoistic people who serve no cause rather polarize and  
create confusion with their subjective approach. I do not consider Doctor Qamer a Scholar he is a student  
of Quran, a humble person who did not react to Doctor Shabbir's provocation. I have read that. In fact, to be  
specific, I should have used the words Ulema and Muushaikh.  
 
 
 
 
 

Comments by: Maniza On 09 October 2010
Dear Moazzam,  
I used the word "muslim scienctist" to explain evelution not just from Darwins deductions, but from those who wrote on the same topic, who were KNOWN as Muslims. Being an executive member means we at least know the defintion of MUSLIM according to Dr.Qamar or not far but least as per Quranic definition.  
 
Muslim = Peacefull,  
 
Momin = those striving to establish Peace.  
 
A'kifna = those that establish the Commands of God on earth,  
 
Kafir = those that reject or cover up Gods Commands.  
 
Mushriq = those that setup laws paralell or against Gods Commands.  
 
Munafiq = hypocrites. those that say they accept Gods Commands, but work against these very commands.  

Comments by: Maniza On 09 October 2010
dear all,  
I forgot to write in the comment above, regarding Darwin was that he understood ALL living things to have started from one single cell.  
 
If God Almighty created the whole universe, with suns, moons, stars and planets from on single "kun"; I dont understand how it can be so hard to accept that He Almighty created ALL living organisms from ONE single cell hmm? :)  
 
You guys need to losen up and be happy that He did ....

Dear Moazzem.

"The human being was a SINGLE Cell-at its initial stage ,started evolution toward its own specified shape see the verse 4/1,6/2,23/12,32/7,37/11,37/71,and same process might be adopted for all living things.The DNA test of different animal kingdom will reveal this mystery"  
 
I am a lay man and does not know much about biology. Kindly please explain briefly through which evolutionary  
stages human, which was a single cell at its initial stage, passed and became a mature human being after  
millions of years. This human cell must have evolved in to creatures. What are those creatures?  
 
I agree with Sister Maniza "Almighty created ALL living organisms from ONE single cell" This is logical.  
 
THANKS.

Dear brother Momin,  
 
You wrote in your conclusion :  
 
"Secondly, Scholars( ulema and mushaikh) are egoistic people who serve no cause rather polarize and create confusion with their subjective approach."  
 
The above, I am sorry to say, is an unqualified generalized statement and, you know, such blind generalizations do not have a scholarly validity/value. These are considered as biased statements and are not taken seriously in the intellectual world.  
 
""I do not consider Doctor Qamer a Scholar he is a student  
of Quran, a humble person who did not react to Doctor Shabbir's provocation.""  
 
The above is your opinion and you have every right to keep your opinion.  
BUT kindly see the blatant contradiction there. On the one hand you are calling some people here as "scholars", in spite of their humble suggestion that they are not. (And you have, at the same time, expressed a very adverse opinion about all Scholars!). On the other hand you refuse to consider even Dr. QZ as a Scholar, who by dint of his Research Work, rightfully deserves the title.  
 
And you consider his "not reacting to Dr. Shabbir's provocation" as a "humbleness" that proves he is not a scholar!!! What a conclusion, my dear?  
Is that a well-thought over Criterion, Brother, or a proper Yardstick for measuring a person as not a scholar?  
What a person's being humble got to do with his being a scholar or not?  
 
AND you call “Ulemas, Mashaaikh” as Scholars? Are you serious my dear? Are they really Scholars or just “cataloguers”?  
 
 
The rest of your comments are hardly a proof of what you define as "merciless evolution". Evolution my dear, has a positive, upward process of human mind which literally means “Development”, a development that may take him to higher echelons of character, thought and behavior. Therefore, I think, you just mistranslate and misconstrue the word EVOLUTION. What U.S. or other Super powers are doing to humanity can only be regarded as a counter-evolution, a retrogressive journey backward to the age of Tribes and Caves, when men used not intellect, but rather their instinctive brutal savagery and violence for their survival and dominance.  
 
Secondly, if we are rendered weak due to the tyrannical grip of our vessel-rulers, how can that fact dictate us not to discuss and disclose the atrocities and vicious intentions of the super powers? Those Powers that, for their ulterior motives, have managed to successfully imprison our material and intellectual progress through our own characterless feudal rulers!!! If we do not disclose the facts how can we mobilize the masses against them?  
 
The other point you raised about atheism. I would say that those who lose their mental balance in wars or adversity and start negating the existence of God, do not actually know the "Sunnat Ullah"; they do not follow the real and everlasting pattern of his rule. They expect too much of their God. That leaves them disillusioned at some point of time.  
 
BUT there are many others of us who still display fortitude in adversity and continue fighting a dual war against both, the local rulers as well as the demonic Super powers with the help of their firm belief in their Doctrine. Others continue striving for a big mental transformation within their societies, which is the pre-requisite for any sustainable change. I think all of us Quranic explorers fall in the latter category. We are doing the best we can within the limited scope available.  
 
In conclusion I would say, we must not waste time criticizing each other. Let us come forward with concrete workable proposals, if we have any.  
 
God bless you.

Dear Moazzem ,  
 
Please comment on my post dated 9 Oct above. Thanks  
 

Comments by: SS On 09 October 2010Report Abuse
Dear All  
As Mr. Aurangzeb has invited me once again to take part in this discussion I am here once again. First a few words on the topic at hand.  
The controversy between the creationists and the evolutionists is as old as the human intellect. You can give reasons from both sides. It is the individual belief, which way one goes. It is very strange that the Quranic scholars are also divided on this subject. A vast majority believes in the creation of human being as against evolution. However, there are a few scholars, who have given evidence from the Quran in support of evolution. G.A.Pervez is one of such scholars and perhaps, Dr. Qamar is another. The famous book by Dr Wadood “Quran and the Phenomena of Life” provide enough evidences from the Quranic verses to prove that various species of life on this planet came into being as a result of evolution. However, there are other scholars, who have proved from the same verses of Quran that human beings were created by God as humans, and not evolved from plants and animals. I am confused, what to believe and what to discard.  
Now, few words on the second topic. Mr Aurangzeb writes in his comments on October 8, 2010 “We have a brother member named SHARIQ, who took the U.S. Marines as well as U.S. mercenaries like Blackwater/Xe, etc. as PEACE PROVIDERS. I hope brother Shariq is going through your valuable data on U.S. evil designs. That would make things easy for him to understand”.  
We, Pakistanis (and Muslims) are a flock of hypocrites and wishful thinkers. It is very difficult for us to think realistically.  
1) The top most priority of every country of the world should be and it is to safeguard their national interests, at all costs. May be Pakistan is an exception but America is no exception. Why do we hope and wish that Americans will safeguard the interests of Pakistan (such interests which are presumed and spelled out by each individual, no matter how illiterate that individual is) at the cost of their own national interests. ………………strange expectation…  
2) Muslims plundered almost the whole known world during the sixth and seventh centuries, but that is no wrong, as per Muslims. Tariq bin Ziad, Muhammad bin Qasim , Mehmood Ghaznavi. I know you will call them heroes. Yes they are your heroes. How many people know the names of Muslim scientists mentioned in a post above. They are not remembered or regarded heroes. Only the conquers, warriors, soldiers, fighters,( plunderers, robbers ) are your heroes. Then why do you condemn “U.S. Marines, U.S. mercenaries, Blackwater/Xe, etc”  
3) We, Muslims have a wonderful history but a terrible present and a uncertain future. We never bother to improve the present. But are more inclined to remain lost in the glories of the past. Hoping that the lost glory will be restored one day, as we are the chosen one and God is on our side. Wakeup This is not going to happen.  
4) There are two ways of competing with the progress of the western world. One is to work hard and progress to the level which had been attained by the West, and the second is to somehow pull the progressed West back to our level. We Muslims are bent upon using the second option.  
5) For centuries we had just been cursing the west and accusing them for steeling the good things from Quran. This has become our psyche. I am sorry I put your remarks about the American agencies in this second category. It is time we should grow up and think like mature people. We will never gain anything by just cursing the west.  
6) We have psychologically (in our sub conscious) accepted the superiority of the west. We are stuck up in western phobia and also accepted that we cannot compete with the west. We have created our own Jannat Dozakh and placed all westerners in the Dozakh, also claiming that the Jannat is only our right.  
Thank you all  
I would love to have opposing views on my remarks.  
 
Shariq  

Comments by: momin On 10 October 2010Report Abuse
Dear Shariq,  
 
You seem to be a well read person. I do not feel confident to oppose you, however I think we need to know  
the definition of a Muslim than the table can be turned over. After clearing our concept of a Muslim we can  
easily find where are Muslims found in the world who have established welfare state and are providing peace  
to their citizen. They have the right to defend themselves from those who are living in hell and have the desire  
to make the whole world like their own society.  
 
Secondly, we must be clear about the period of Muslim era. Certainly it should be prior to Persian conspiracy  
period. Than you find your heroes in that particular era of Muslim society. No 2 Islam period as is discussed  
here is not Muslim period when salat became namaz , soam changed in to Roza, protest became haj, Zina  
became adultery and distorsion became Fahashi. Than no one will be proud or ashamed of heroes/Villon of  
no 2 Islam period.  
 
Thirdly, Muslims are expected to first establish(salah) a welfare state and than defend it. Defending "zulm"  
is it self "zulm"

millions of years. This human cell must have evolved in to creatures. What are those creatures? "  
Dear Momin this part of ur question is related to the Allah's system of AMR where the term KUNN is used. The question of evolution starts from the quranic term FAYAKOON, see the verses 2/117,3/59,3/47,6/73,16/40,40/67--68.Being a quranic student, i quoted the verses 76/1 and 4/1, where quran mentioned the HUMAN creature started from a single cell.The anthropologist ,archaeologists and biologists can tell the matter in more details.Most part of their study is based upon the hypothesis related to the BIG BANG.The quran supports the natural/ scientific proven LAWS, and we are bound to accept them, but not bound to accept the hypothesis in any era.

Dear Moazzem,  
I have poor comprehension power so what to do? I do not find answer to my question in  
your reply and reasons to reject Darwins theory that life started from a single cell. There is  
no solid ground for creationists to reject it. They talk about missing link but can not explain a single step  
in the evolution with in specie. After all a single human cell could not have become a full fledged human  
being unless we believe in Mullah's theory of creation which he tries to prove through power of divinity.  
So why not to believe in Darwin?

Comments by: moazzam On 12 October 2010
Dear Momin: I totally disagree with your comments about yourself that, "I have poor comprehension power" my views are entirely opposite.Plz read my 1st post of this topic, I always speak high about CHARLES DARWIN ". Darwin said that, just as man selects what he wants in his farm animals, so in nature, the variations allow natural selection to work.  
. But the hypothesis regarding evolution process of HUMAN BEING from the other types of animals is beyond my comprehension power, also the missing links as brother Aurangzaib quoted in his post possess weight.Therefore keeping in view the quranic verses 76/1,4/1 my inference built is, that ,the process of evolution in HUMAN BEING had been started from the unique cell other than the rest of creation.The chimpanzees has 98.4% resembled DNA as the human being, and still having same ratio,but in intelligent having no comparison at all . The research here under only suggests not confirms that , the species are the revolutionized form of chimpanzees/gorillas. let me reproduce the relevant portion of the research "Divergence of the human lineage from other Great Apes  
 
Species close to the last common ancestor of gorillas, chimpanzees and humans may be represented by Nakalipithecus fossils found in Kenya and Ouranopithecus found in Greece. Molecular evidence suggests that between 8 and 4 million years ago, first the gorillas, and then the chimpanzees (genus Pan) split off from the line leading to the humans; human DNA is approximately 98.4% identical to that of chimpanzees when comparing single nucleotide polymorphisms (see human evolutionary genetics). The fossil record of gorillas and chimpanzees is quite limited. Both poor preservation (rain forest soils tend to be acidic and dissolve bone) and sampling bias probably contribute to this problem.  
My dear Momin we have the option here ,whether accept the above hypothetical suggestion based on genetic structural resemblance (DNA approximation still having the same ratio) OR the quranic declaration of verse 4/1.My dear we have still open room whether to scientifically prove the darwin's claim of human revolution OR to elaborate the said quranic verse in a much better understanding to correct us,in both ways I believe that quran has no conflict with the nature.

Dear brother Shariq,  
 
I am happy my reference to you pulled you back into discussions. May be it was a deliberate effort on my part? I was feeling the absence.  
 
However, as I went through your post, I found that I need not write more as my earlier comments above already clarify my position, which is contrary to your observations.  
 
I don’t think we need resort to history always. Going back into history would distract us from our original topic. So, although I love history, I would prefer not to prolong this discussion.  
 
None of my comments about Muslims can prove that I have anywhere gone in the direction of favouring "us", as against "those others". I always write keeping in view the divine values, morals and ethics, which I believe, are the only factors/yardstick to judge the things going on around the globe. No theories or philosophies fabricated by men hold the status of supreme authority to decide.  
 
Chapter Al-Maa’idah: Verses 44, 45, 47:  
"Wa man lam Yahkum bi ma anzalallaah, oolaika hum al-Kafiroon;  
…………………………………………………oolaika hum az-Zalimoon;  
…………………………………………………oolaika hum al-faasiqoon.  
 
AND THOSE WHO DO NOT TAKE DECISIONS/RULINGS ACCORDING TO WHAT ALLAH HAS PRESENTED, THEY ARE THE KAFIRS, ZAALIMS AND FAASIQS.  
 
Whenever two people discuss things with different and conflicting perspectives, no agreement or conclusion can be arrived at. Experience tells that "parameters" and "criterion" must be agreed in advance, or else it is wastage of time, as nobody is ready to either listen or learn, even if it is Quran before them.  
 
Welcome back any way.

I am very late to express my views about evolution from Quran ,however I am not too late. Most frequently quoted verses are 22/5-6 & 23/12-14.  
 
These are considered to be about different stages of human development in mothers womb. As I always take Quran as a guidance for humanity to establish a socioeconomic system of Justice so I have a tendency of driving meaning from every verse for that purpose  
So after giving the orthodox meanings I would like to give meanings accordingly.  
 
يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ فِي رَيْبٍ مِنَ الْبَعْثِ فَإِنَّا خَلَقْنَاكُمْ مِنْ تُرَابٍ ثُمَّ مِنْ نُطْفَةٍ ثُمَّ مِنْ عَلَقَةٍ ثُمَّ مِنْ مُضْغَةٍ مُخَلَّقَةٍ وَغَيْرِ مُخَلَّقَةٍ لِنُبَيِّنَ لَكُمْ وَنُقِرُّ فِي الأرْحَامِ مَا نَشَاءُ إِلَى أَجَلٍ مُسَمًّى ثُمَّ نُخْرِجُكُمْ طِفْلا ثُمَّ لِتَبْلُغُوا أَشُدَّكُمْ وَمِنْكُمْ مَنْ يُتَوَفَّى وَمِنْكُمْ مَنْ يُرَدُّ إِلَى أَرْذَلِ الْعُمُرِ لِكَيْلا يَعْلَمَ مِنْ بَعْدِ عِلْمٍ شَيْئًا وَتَرَى الأرْضَ هَامِدَةً فَإِذَا أَنْزَلْنَا عَلَيْهَا الْمَاءَ اهْتَزَّتْ وَرَبَتْ وَأَنْبَتَتْ مِنْ كُلِّ زَوْجٍ بَهِيجٍ  
 
5. O mankind! if You are In doubt about the Resurrection, Then Verily! we have created You (i.e. Adam) from dust, Then from a Nutfah (mixed drops of male and female sexual discharge i.e. offspring of Adam), Then from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood) Then from a little lump of flesh, some formed and some unformed (miscarriage), that we may make (it) clear to You (i.e. to show You Our power and ability to do what we will). and we Cause whom we will to remain In the wombs for an appointed term, Then we bring You out as infants, Then (give You growth) that You may reach Your age of full strength. and among You there is He who dies (young), and among You there is He who is brought back to the miserable old age, so that He knows nothing after having known. and You see the earth barren, but when we send down water (rain) on it, it is stirred (to life), it swells and puts forth Every lovely kind (of growth).  
 
ذَلِكَ بِأَنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ الْحَقُّ وَأَنَّهُ يُحْيِي الْمَوْتَى وَأَنَّهُ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ  
 
6. that is because Allâh, He is the truth, and it is He who gives life to the dead, and it is He who is Able to do All things.  
 
Now lets discuss the words used in these verses .  
1...., بعث the basic root letters are ب ع ث which means to appoint ,to raise , to send a to send a delegation ,المبعوث representative , Messenger , Delegation  
2…., تراب the basic root letters are ت ر ب which means ,ground ,dust , تراب مترب be hopeless , be poor , desperate , تربیت to train to educate .  
3…. ,نطفہ the basic root letters are ن ط ف which means crime ,vice corruption ,unclean , impure , drop (of male sexual fluid ) ,spoiled .  
4…., علقہ the basic root letters are ع ل ق which means suspended , trapped ,attached ,adhere , affection love , تعلقات relations  
5…. ,مضغہ the basic root letters are م ض غ which means to chew to eat , fight furiously mouthful ,a lump of flesh .  
6…., ارحام the basic root letters are رح م which means to be compassionate , kind ,merciful ,  
7…., طفلا the basic root letters are ط ف ل which means decline towards setting,enter on the evening time ,perish in the dust ,be still young , young and tender , young of an animal . طفیلی dependent ,  
 
Now lets see the meanings of certain words in verse 23/12 – 14 . other than those words already discussed above ,  
1…., طین the basic root letters are ط ی ن which mean either to cover with mud or character and nature of a person بدطینت bad character .  
2…., عظاما the basic root letters are ع ظ م which mean basic structure including bony structure , the strength ,to be great ,to be important , honor , عظمت greatness , Words used are عظیم majestic glorious . تعظیم respect .e.t.c.  
3…., لحما the basic root letters are ل ح م which means make firm ,work solidly solder , flesh , relationships . usage : : لحم الشی لحما meaning to join or solder two things togetherلحم الامر۔ to set right , to make strongly apply some orders .  
 
I am leaving at this point for readers to think how these stages can be interpreted for the development of a society and not the developmental stages of the foetus in the womb .

Salaam  
 
So all we had to do ,,,was to come "out of the womb" If these stages are describing us after we are born, then it would mean  
 
O mankind! if ye have  
A doubt about the Resurrection,  
 
Human beings who dont understand the ability to be "raised " to higher levels,  
 
(Consider) that We created you  
Out of dust  
 
God created us from the ground,,,meaning when the human being was born he is not educated but he have the ability to develope and gain knowledge  
 
then out of  
Sperm,  
 
With time he was not able to control his desires or dont know the difference between right or wrong,which leads him to develope impure immature thoughts  
 
then out of a leech-like  
Clot  
 
i.e But then you developed love and affection in you ,i.e, you are not only thinking about yourself  
 
then out of a morsel  
Of flesh,  
 
So different types of feelings which were the result of different kinds of experiences  
 
partly formed  
And partly unformed,  
 
Still learning , under the process of forming the"lump of flesh" (brain)  
 
And We cause whom We will  
To rest in the wombs  
For an appointed term,  
 
 
Dont know , mayb Then you learnt to be compassionate and mercyful  
 
Then do We bring you out  
As babes,  
 
Dont know, mayb that after these different stages of development, humanbeings are s kind of "reborn" or reached the level of humanity where he is able to see tha difference between right and wrong ,now ready to learn how build a character?  
 
Because the next verse is talking about character,lahm,the ability to live with one another and take care of each other,so the humanity with the help of each and every humanbeing can be strong,majestic great homo sapiens?  
 
Dear friends ,dont Laugh at me , at least i tried :D  
 
No matter what - dear Dr Qamar Zaman, i expect a gift now :D Arungzaib pleasee sing a song and dedicate it to me on youtube :D :D You know like who :P:P:P

Dear S. Nargis,  
 
Brilliant perception. I reckon something identical is going to come. You are too good and too swift.  
 
I too am very apprehensive. But I am not brilliant like you and feel quite unable to respond to Dr. QZ's call for comments. Feel almost dumb-founded.  
 
I would rather lie waiting for the "explosion" to come, taking a safe position.  
 
About singing a song, you know, I swore upon my head never to........after watching my former Hero singing - thanks to your valuable gift of Youtube links !!!! That made history for me.  
 
Thanks a lot.

Feel almost dumb-founded. May Allah bestow more wisdom upon YOU.

Awww Dear Moazzam , i dont think B Arungzaib was trying to discourage anyone, he was in fact trying to encourage me just like a good teacher would do. I think Dr Qamar want us to see things from different angles,they are both trying to make us think and reflect. I really appreciate that because i have already learnt a way of thinking and understand how the Quran is "built up" (or some of it ). I think its most of the time using the basic definition of a word rather than a derivation, or a derivation closest to the definition (Of course, context plays a major role) ?Now i also understand the concept of being "easy to understand/mubeen arabic etc", (i never got that,to be honest)  
 
At School when our teacher asked questions, and when we tried to answer with "ehhh errr i think ,,, dont knw,,, ehhh", (then we stopped coz we were afraid of saying something stupid in front of everyone ) Our teacher was always patient and said, "You're right your right you said you "think" ,,,at your age I didnt even know what that word meant ... "  
 
:)  
 
obviously he always knew what "think"meant,but he said it just to make us laugh so we could calm down and try again.  
 
So dear B Moazzam, B Arungzaib he was just trying to encourage me to continue "trying". I think he noticed my last sentence "do not laugh, I tried at least" and therefore supported me to not lose heart. Through this message, he taught everyone not to give up.  
 
I dont remember who said this but sharing it with you coz i just love it : "I TRIED TO LEARN, BUT THEN ....I LEARNED TO "TRY" "  
 
Thank you so much for your lovely words B Arungzaib, but i still want to see you on youtube like your former hero Heeralaal (ha ha ha ). Nahi to khud pakistan a ke bazo maroor ke zabardasti gana gawa ke mobile se film bana ke upload kar lo gi :D And yes i deserve a gift for trying ,from all of you. My favourite colour is red, ill make a list and send it to you. Maniza and i will share everything because we are always right when we are wrong and always correct when we are not right :D (That's the advantage of being women:D :D )

Comments by: Dr. Qamar Zaman On 15 October 2010
Dear members ,  
I love you all.You people are my strength and hope of the future.  
 
There are certain words worth concentrating,  
1…,First thing to note is that people are doubtful about البعث . If البعث is translated for life after death then, People are not doubtful about resurrection. From primitive to most modern, from illiterate to highly educated society, nobody denies life after death and concept of judgment day is in everybody’s mind. (with exception of a very negligible minority who call themselves Atheist ). Then why the question of resurrection or life after death was raised .  
 
2…, The argument, against the doubt, starts with the word فا نا خلقناکم من تراب . That we created you from ground or dust (which is again disputable ) but taking it as such the next part of the verse starts with ثم  
 
يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ فِي رَيْبٍ مِنَ الْبَعْثِ فَإِنَّا خَلَقْنَاكُمْ مِنْ تُرَابٍ ثُمَّ مِنْ نُطْفَةٍ ثُمَّ مِنْ عَلَقَةٍ ثُمَّ مِنْ مُضْغَةٍ مُخَلَّقَةٍ وَغَيْرِ  
مُخَلَّقَةٍ لِنُبَيِّنَ لَكُمْ وَنُقِرُّ فِي الأرْحَامِ مَا نَشَاءُ إِلَى أَجَلٍ مُسَمًّى ثُمَّ نُخْرِجُكُمْ طِفْلا ثُمَّ لِتَبْلُغُوا أَشُدَّكُمْ وَمِنْكُمْ مَنْ يُتَوَفَّى وَمِنْكُمْ  
مَنْ يُرَدُّ إِلَى أَرْذَلِ الْعُمُرِ لِكَيْلا يَعْلَمَ مِنْ بَعْدِ عِلْمٍ شَيْئًا وَتَرَى الأرْضَ هَامِدَةً فَإِذَا أَنْزَلْنَا عَلَيْهَا الْمَاءَ اهْتَزَّتْ وَرَبَتْ وَأَنْبَتَتْ  
مِنْ كُلِّ زَوْجٍ بَهِيجٍ  
 
5. O mankind! if You are In doubt about the Resurrection, Then Verily! we have created You from dust, Then from a Nutfah , Then from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood) Then from a little lump of flesh, some formed and some unformed that we may make clear to You . and we Cause whom we will to remain In the wombs for an appointed term, Then we bring You out as infants, that You may reach Your age of full strength. and among You there is He who dies , and among You there is He who is brought back to the miserable old age, so that He knows nothing after having known. and You see the earth barren, but when we send down water on it, it is stirred , it swells and puts forth Every lovely kind .( orthodox translation )  
 
The word ثم (Then ) needs some attention. There is no verb after ثم . The verb خلقناکم has been dropped to avoid repetition. This is called محذوف . The translation after putting the omitted word will be  
 
5. O mankind! if You are In doubt about the Resurrection, Then Verily! we have created You from dust, Then we created you from a Nutfah, Then we created you from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood) Then we created you from a little lump of flesh, some formed and some unformed , that we may make clear to You and we Cause whom we will to remain In the wombs for an appointed term, Then we bring You out as infants, that You may reach Your age of full strength. and among You there is He who dies , and among You there is He who is brought back to the miserable old age, so that He knows nothing after having known. and You see the earth barren, but when we send down water on it, it is stirred , it swells and puts forth Every lovely kind (of growth).  
 
Now it becomes clear that these are different stages of evolution of a society. It is not changing from one stage to another creation. It is not that human beings were created to start with by dust and then this dusty creature changed into NUTFAH and then it was changed into CLOT then it subsequently changed into LUMP OF FLESH .  
 
On the contrary these are the developmental stages of a society .  
 
To begin with the society starts developing from the primitive stage of hopelessness and desperation . next the society does not go back to the stage of hopelessness but starts developing from the next stage that’s why word ثم is used . a developed society never goes back to the previous stage but it starts its development from the already developed stage .  
 
The next stage of social development is NUTFAH نطفہ which means that they are not hopeless but they still have vices in the society .  
 
Next the society develops from ALAQAH علقہ i.e. they tend to develop relations and adhere to the society .  
 
Next stage is of MUDGHA i.e. they have developed relations but still have fighting tendency of different nature i.e. the stage of have and have not.  
 
But next stage is of mercy and compassion where they find a place to settle و نقر فی الارحام  
 
ثُمَّ نُخْرِجُكُمْ طِفْلا The next stage of the society is of being young tender and still dependent  
 
ِفْلا ثُمَّ لِتَبْلُغُوا أَشُدَّكُمْ وَمِنْكُمْ مَنْ يُتَوَفَّى وَمِنْكُمْ مَنْ يُرَدُّ إِلَى أَرْذَلِ الْعُمُرِ لِكَيْلا يَعْلَمَ مِنْ بَعْدِ عِلْمٍ شَيْئًا  
 
And then you reach to your strength . and among You there is He who is rewarded fully , and among You there is He who is brought back to the miserable life, so that He knows nothing after having known.  
Now an example from our observation is put forth  
 
وَتَرَى الأرْضَ هَامِدَةً فَإِذَا أَنْزَلْنَا عَلَيْهَا الْمَاءَ اهْتَزَّتْ وَرَبَتْ وَأَنْبَتَتْ مِنْ كُلِّ زَوْجٍ بَهِيجٍ  
 
and You see the earth barren, but when we send down water on it, it is stirred , it swells and puts forth Every lovely kind of growth.

Dear All,  
Interpretation by Doctor Qamer is amazing and considerable. This has proved that our efforts to  
check scientific discoveries from Quran is a futile effort. The question arises here, is it a correct approach  
to keep interpreting Quran differently whenever some scientific discovery is made and than proving that  
the book is beyond time and space. See what Doctor Qamer writes,  
 
 
 
"As I always take Quran as a guidance for humanity to establish a socioeconomic system of Justice  
so I have a tendency of driving meaning from every verse for that purpose"  
 
 
This sentence is a guide line to look into Quran. We must understand here that Quran does not discuss  
evolution.That is, how life started on earth? Rather it discusses socioeconomic system. Discussion  
on Darwins theory is out of scope of Quran. I always considered prophets as socioeconomic scientists.  
Nature reveals itself to these fortunate human beings. See what answer was given by the prophet when  
people asked him about moon. No scientific discovery, a simple answer is given. THINK.

Dear all,  
I was thinking about the book written by Doctor Abdul Wadood, Quran and the phenomenal science.  
How he interpreted the same verse to prove medical science. Similarly, many other scholars. This is what  
scholars do.  
 
"Hairan hoon dil ko roon ya pittoon jiger ko main  
makdoor ho to pass rukhoon noha ger ko main  
chalta hoon do kudda her ik rah ro k sath  
pahchanta nanhe hoon kissi rahber ko main."  
 
Think, think and think. " yai ik grukh danda hai." You can find it on u tube by Nusrat Fateh Ali.  
 
 
Let us all think, All wise people can prophesies. Let us think independently without any barrier except  
reason. Create new books. old books even if they were medicine than, now they are expired medicines.  
I request Doctor Qamer to please write your own book, you have the capability to give better vision.  
Except few, your interpretations will not have popular support.  
 
I don't know how many scholars will attack me now. I still maintain Doctor Qamer is not a scholar in my  
eyes. He is a reasonable person who wants to present our beloved book in a reasonable way.

Dear All, I think we humans have a tendency to jump to conclusions very soon. A better approach would be take time to absorb analyze possible impacted areas to see how it fits on grounds of understanding.  
 
I really appreciate Dr QZ’s honest confession when he says “As I always take Quran as a guidance for humanity to establish a socioeconomic system of Justice so I have a tendency of driving meaning from every verse for that purpose."  
 
I think merit of understanding interpretation of a particular verse should be based on relativity of ongoing topic. I would like to take this instance as beauty of Quran which has a unique way of explaining. What’s wrong in using metaphors or examples which is a similitude( similar/identical) to explain a concept. Don’t we use examples to express any concept? Neither the example would be wrong nor the concept. I believe God would have not used bad examples or similitude.  
 
Dr wadood saw SIGNS of medical science and Dr QZ saw guidance for humanity to establish socio economic system. As said lets take this as glory of Quran and happy to be alive to witness the glory.  
 
Scholar as I understand and found is academic, intellectual, researcher. For me Dr QZ fits in his domain for what all it means to a scholar. Am not trying to defend scholar status of Dr QZ but tying to convey what i understand.  
 
Note : Don’t expect an individual to be perfect in understanding of all domains. For example lets not consider a good scientist to be a good farmer too. ( He can be if he worked for both domains)  
 
Thanks,  
Mubashir Syed.

Dear Mubashir,  
 
Yours was the best rationalistic comment as yet on Dr. Sahib's revolutionary translation. My sincere appreciation for your maturity of thought.  
 
Hasty conclusions and blind generalizations as we see around, portray a shallow thought pattern. Thanks God, I do not find any of that in you. On the contrary, you reflect an unbiased scholarly impartiality that is very promising.  
 
God bless you.

Dear Bob,  
 
A good question you asked me. By scholars here I meant religious teachers who justify religious  
books by their own flight of imagination. Than they create polarization amongst humanity by defending their  
own ego. Example is your discussion with Doctor Shabbir , in one of the post you wrote him you were bob  
not boob and I loughed. I have found majority of religious scholars behaving exactly like Doctor Shabbir.  
Why I said Doctor Qamer is not a scholar because I found him very humble having no ego. I am sick of  
scholars in this country.Look at religious scholars. I was not very positive about allama pervez because I  
didn't have adequate religious knowledge. I purchased a book namely "Aeenaay Perweziat' . I was reading  
this book when I found a passage in which the author had written that Pervez says you can not marry a  
physically immature girl from Quranic point of you but he will prove it from Quran that it is allowed and you  
can even have intercourse with her.Mind you this dirty scholar proved it with reasons by quoting references  
from Quran. Author of the book is a renowned scholar of jamaat-i-Islami. His written expression was marvelous  
with good knowledge and power of reason. But see what he wanted to bring out or prove. Dear bob that is how I developed hatred towards religious scholars. This hatred oozes out, of and on in my conversation sometimes at appropriate moments and sometimes at in appropriate moments too. I think in my above posts I inappropriately expressed my hatred. I am sorry if I have hurt you. I have no liking for religious scholars. Rather I became fed up of religion.rather totally disappointed.I don't understand why God doesn't guide us now by sending messengers.  
At least he should save our efforts to keep interpreting and yet confused. Or let us think ourselves and find  
solutions to our problems. Write our own books. get in touch with nature and find our own truth as Buddah did.  
All such people were assets of humanity. Equally respectable. They were not scholars but thinkers. You see I  
have again used the word scholar please forgive me. Thanks God I do not have power otherwise I would have eliminated this curse. I told one of my friends closed to Musharaf to do this noble job and clean this country from  
all religious scholars and their terrorism. but he was also afraid in spite of having so much power and ended  
up on NRO.

Dear Dr. Sahib, and all friends,  
 
Submitted hereunder is the regular, running, integrated translation based on Dr. QZ’s latest discoveries. It is for Dr. Sahib’s final approval and/or to make corrections where applicable to make it our final version. Free for the whole Aastana family to pass comments and/or make corrections.  
 
Verse 22/5-6: (After Dr. QZ’s revolutionary interpretation) :  
 
“O mankind, If you were in doubt ( فی ریب ) about how the societies evolve / civilizations prosper ( من البعث ), so (be it known that..) verily, it is WE who afforded you an initial start ( خلقناکم ) from very humble and hopeless origins ( من تراب ), then (evolved you further) from a state of vices and corruption ( من نطفۃ ), then from a condition of love and affection and harmony ( علقۃ ), then from a state of class discrimination and conflict ( من مضغۃ مخلقۃ و غیر مخلقۃ ) with the aim that we may make things amply clear to you ( لنبین لکم ); and we may settle you in a state of mercy and compassion (نقر فی الارحام ), as planned by us ( ما نشاء ), up to the maturity of a tentative time period ( الی اجل مسمی ); then we evolve you to a younger stage of tenderness and dependence (نخرجکم طفلا ), afterwards to reach finally the stage of maturity and strength (ثم لتبلغو اشدکم ); where some of your societies are rewarded fully (منکم من یتوفی ) (with continued evolution) and others are reverted to the miserable living (منکم من یرد الی ارذل العمر ), where they remain in the darkness of ignorance ( لکی لا یعلم ) in spite of the spread of knowledge.  
This process is just as you see the earth (initially) lying barren, so if we showered water upon it, it is stirred and swelled and brings forth multiple kinds of lovely growth. “  
 
Also tell me all dear ones, (Bob, Moazzam, Mubashir, Nargis, Bilal, Adnan, Maniza…….all the Quranic family) isn’t it still ‘EVOLUTION’, be it cultural, sociological…..(what not?), if not anthropological?  
 
Waiting for your valuable reflections.

AOA respected members  
I do agree with most reason full, realistic and Arabic linguistic meanings presented by Dr. Q.ZAMAN. All those people and the scholars who tried to prove science from QURAN were sincere in their efforts, but for a moment think 14 hundred years ago when this glorious and great book QURAN was revealed to the people of Arab how could they understand the scientific theories and facts discovered today or in different era of times and before them? Actually they didn’t, they only understood the principles on which a balanced society should be established. After studying QURAN it seems that from Stone Age to the different developed societies, people had made the different principles, ideologies, beliefs on which they were acted upon and the different divine books which were revealed to the human beings of different societies in different era of times only pointed out their wrong and unjust principles, ideologies or beliefs and to develop a society based on the divine principles so that no human being on this earth remain unable or made unable to have his rights of living

Dear Mubashir Syed,  
 
You are right. no one can be perfect. In fact it is a general approach of all religious scholars to check  
scientific discoveries from Quran. Doctor Qamer is the only person I came across who limits the book to socioeconomic  
field. This is understandable. just to prove that we were discussing evolution and still it is evolution means nothing to me  
except egoistic approach of a scholar. I agree with you that Doctor Wadood made a sincere effort in understanding. Brother  
no metaphor is used here. Doctor Qamer arrived at this interpretation through using word to word meanings.

Dear Aurangzaib bhai and others,  
 
I thank dr.Qamar again for a literal translation as he finds it nesaccery according to his reason of the Quran being a book of Guidance, complete guidance as God himself states. We are all of course grateful for this and by learning this, we of course at the same time are educated as to how to bring about a family, society and country based upon these values. This is the aim of Aastana and Dr. Qamar.  
 
After stating this, I still am emphatic that Dr. Qamar does not want us to be blind followers or idol worshippers of him as is done on other sites. . The Quran will of course through the ages give deeper meanings into ayahs and words as thus.... I myself have discovered many times an ayah having double meanings, both of benefit ... ( don’t ask me for any reference, study yourself :)  
 
if a scientist reads the Quran he too will find what he seeks, be it the science of evolution, which has benefitted mankind enormously the past 200 centauries or so, be it history or the socio- sciences, for me the Quran holds untold mysteries which open up more and more from day to day..  
 
Having thus said, I would like to point out to bhai Momin, of your tableegi jamaat (scholar) and his proof of marrying an immature girl, that he my brother is no scholar, why, because here on Aastana we do not believe in translating the Quran through hadith... here is the point of contention, and there will always be one with every Quran you bring forth, be it the shia, the wahabi, the deobandi or the brailvi version! We believe in the literal and grammatical approach, but at the same time, before you lift your pen to write back, I will again clarify, I agree and accept dr. Qamar's translations, because I read for myself, if it makes sense, I buy it :) ...  
Ps I am no scholar...  
 
Dear dr. Shahid I am most thankful for your sammation, and dear Aurangzaib bhai, thanku so much for making the clarification of what dr.Qamar had written, no offence dear Dr.Qamar but for me the 2, and 3 points (ayahs were mixed up, I could not make sence of them in all honesty and I was going to write that but bhai Aurangzaib explained it well..

Dear All,  
Once again a wonderful discovery by Doctor Qamer and excellent explanation by Brother Aurangzeb.  
I also agree and appreciate brother momin for his perception. Mr momin you are right Ulemas and Mushaikhs  
have done tremendous harm to humanity. I also understand the sense in which you are using this word. Same  
as we say Mullah approach. Anyone can be Mullah, it is a mentality. I fully agree with you that Darwins theory  
of evolution has nothing to do with these verses and metaphor has not been used here. But just see everyone  
has appreciated correct approach of Doctor Qamer, so no Mullah mentality.  
 
Please keep in touch you will benefit here. Your approach is simple and reasonable. If you observe some  
germs of Mullah mentality in anyone, just ignore. Anyone with any believe can enter and learn here. We are  
happy that you have liking for Doctor Qamers interpretations, You seem to have the same approach. Your  
learning will be faster than at least mine.

Salam.  
 
The real object of the Rasul's is to establishing the movement of justice and equity, towards [Peace]  
 
57:25 In order to achieve this objective Allah has sent His Rusul to different nations for clear and explicit reasons. Every Rasool brought with him a code of laws. With the help of that code they established a society in which every action of a person would produce a proper result and people would adhere to justice and equity. For the stability of society, along with the Code of Law, These Laws offer an insight into and serve as a reminder of forgotten realities.Since this helps in establishing the system of justice and peace and provides protection for the oppressed, instead of being harmful it is greatly beneficial to mankind. It also marks out those who help the Divine Order established by the messengers of Allah; and although its pleasant and beneficial results cannot be felt visibly they continue giving sacrifices on account of their firm conviction. The Divine Order that has all the power and force in it is thus established with the help of these people.  
 
Sisters and Brothers this complex and beautiful universe contains countless celestial phenomena, stars and planets. On one such planet, the human species has emerged over millions of years of evolution to form cultures, each with its own respective language, expression and understanding of the universal framework. This diversity has resulted in the most beautiful achievements of mankind; however it has also caused conflicts that spring from a difference in their worldview still prevalent today. Within the history of mankind a leap was taken 1400 years ago creating one of the most developed societies on earth. The main cause of this leap was a message collected into a book called the Qur'an that is claimed to have come from the First Cause of all reality.  
 
This can be achieved through systematic investigation of the language and historical context of the Qur'an and its relation with all fields. One of our observations is the Qur'an's message for all individual on earth to unite, A cooperation towards peace and justice to benefit all; regardless of ethnicity, religion or status.  
 
As stated by the Qur'an: ولكل وجهة هو موليها فاستبقوا الخيرت اين ما تكونوا يات بكم الله جميعا ان الله على كل شىء قدير And for everyone there is a direction to which he turns. Then strive together toward all that is good for all (al-Khayrat: to surpass in goodness). Whatever stand you take, God will bring you all together. Indeed, God is the infinite Potential (2:148).  
 
The approaches to the Qur'an of the last 1200 years were developed under the influence of the social, political and religious environments between the 7th and 14th centuries CE, which on many issues were strikingly different from its intended message and original context.  
 
انا انزلناه قرانا عربيا لعلكم تعقلون  
"Indeed, We have sent it down as an Arabic Qur'an, so that you might encompass it with your reason and intellect (ta'qluna from aql: Intellect,to be endowned with reason,to comprehend)." (12:2)  
 
ان الدين عند الله الاسلم  
"The behaviour/obligation (al-Deen: behaviour, custom, obedience, authority, obligation, habit) with God, is the acceptance/giving over of/to Peace (al-Islam: according to scholar Raghib [1100] it means al-Dukhulu fi al-Silm The engagement/entering into Peace/Welfare. The root salima refers to peace, welfare and wellbeing, form IV refers to accepting/giving over to peace)." (3:19  
 
ان الذين امنوا وعملوا الصالحات انا لا نضيع اجر من احسن عملا  
"Indeed, those who are entrusted with maintaining peace (amanu from amina: to maintain/provide safety and security,to be trusted,to have trust) and who's actions keep and restore the balance [of justice, wellfare, progress and enviroment] (as-Salihati: Reform or restoration of balance and goodness), We shall not let go in vain the due reward of the one who's actions improves the state of others (ahsana: to make things good and proportioned)." (18:30)  
 
ان الله يامر بالعدل والاحسن وايتائ ذى القربى وينهى عن الفحشاء والمنكر والبغى يعظكم لعلكم تذكرون  
"God commands justice (al-Adl), creating goodness in the society (ihsani), and giving to relatives. And He forbids every thing which go against Qur'an (al-Fahshai), and that "Al fahshai brings in society all immoralies (al-Munkar) and oppressions (al-Baghyi). He instructs you (again) so that you may take it to heart." (16:90)  
 
وما كان الناس الا امة وحدة  
"And Mankind is and was but one united nation (kana refers to past, but also to a neverending state. Ummat: Origins, people united as siblings and treating each other as family, from umm: mother/origins)." (10:19)  
 
لتركبن طبقا عن طبق  
"You (Mankind) shall surely embark from stage to stage (Tabiq: Stage, Level, Stratum)." (84:19  
 
وتمت كلمت ربك صدقا وعدلا لا مبدل لكلمته وهو السميع العليم  
"The word of your Sustainer of your evolution (Rabb) has been completed with sound truth (sidqa) and absolute justice (Adla); there is no changing His words. He is the Hearer, the Knower." (6:115)  
 
ولقد يسرنا القرءان للذكر فهل من مدكر  
"And indeed We have made easy (yassarna: we made easy, facilitated) the Qur'an for understanding and keeping in mind (al-Dhikr= to keep in mind, the recollection, that which is thought over). So is there anyone who bears this in their mind?" (54:17, 22, 32 and 40)  
 
اولئك يسرعون فى الخيرت وهم لها سبقون  
"It is those who race with one another to improve the quality of life for humanity (al-Khayrat: to surpass in goodness), and it is those who are the forerunners (of mankind)." (23:61)  
 
ومن احسن قولا ممن دعا الى الله وعمل صلحا وقال اننى من المسلمين  
Who is better in saying than one who invites to God, and perform deeds that create justice and peace (3milu saliha: works that reform and restore the balance), and says: "I am one of those who gives over to peace (al-Muslimin from salama: to give over to peace and welfare)." (41:33)  
 
يايها الذين ءامنوا كونوا قومين لله شهداء بالقسط ولا يجرمنكم شنان قوم على الا تعدلوا اعدلوا هو اقرب للتقوى واتقوا  
بما تعملون  
"O you who acknowledge [Truth] and create security (amanu: trust, acknowledge, peace & security). Be steadfast & stand up (qawwamin from Qama: to stand up firmly for something) for God [on earth] bearing witness with justice, equity & fairness (al-Qist: to be fair and just even with people who do not deserve it) and let not be incited by hatred (shana'an) for a people, to not act with absolute equity, impartiality & justice (ta'dilu from al-Adl). To act with absolute equity & impartial justice (adilu) is the closest (aqraba from Qaraba: to be near, close) to the duty to guard against what harms mankind (al-Taqwa from ita'qu: to be on guard/aware of what harms, to be shielded). And be aware of God (atqu Allah). Surely God is aware of all your actions." (5:8)  
 
لكل جعلنا منكم شرعة ومنهاجا ولو شاء الله لجعلكم امة وحدة ولكن ليبلوكم فى ما ءاتىكم فاستبقوا الخيرت الى الله مرجعكم جميعا فينبئكم بما كنتم فيه تختلفون  
"For each [community] among you have We have appointed a way of progress (Shir'ah: a way to a watering-place, path where everything meets/gets nourishment) and way of life (minhaj: open road, path of life). And if God had so willed, He could surely have made you all one single community: but [He willed it otherwise] in order to test you by means of what He has vouchsafed unto, you. So, outdo one another in doing good to the society. To God you will all return, and He will then make you understand wherein you differed." (5:48)  
 
 
والذين استجابوا لربهم واقاموا الصلوة وامرهم شورى بينهم ومما رزقنهم ينفقون والذين اذا اصابهم البغى هم ينتصرون وجزوا سيئة سيئة مثلها فمن عفا واصلح فاجره على الله انه لا يحب الظلمين ولمن انتصر بعد ظلمه فاولئك ما عليهم من سبيل انما السبيل على الذين يظلمون الناس ويبغون فى الارض بغير الحق اولئك لهم عذاب اليم ولمن صبر وغفر ان ذلك لمن عزم الامور  
"They respond to their Maintainer of Evolution (Rabb: to sustain the evolution towards maturity) by establishing the movement towards [Peace] (Salat: to move towards something, i.e. we are guided to the state of peace 10:25), and conduct their affairs by mutual consultation (Shura: consultation, debate, counsel another), and they keep open for the welfare of others what We have given them. And whenever gross injustice is inflicted upon them, they defend themselves and stand up for their rights (yantasiruna: to defend or aid themselves). But requiting evil may become an evil in itself! (sayyi: to hurt or tyrannize others) So, whoever pardons and makes peace (aslaha: to restore the balance), his reward rests with God. Surely, He does not love the violators of human rights (alThzalimeen: Those that put themselves above others, from Thzalima=to displace something). Certainly, those who stand up for their rights, when injustice befalls them, are not committing any error. The blame is on those who oppress people and cause disorder on the earth resorting to aggression, unprovoked. They are the ones for whom there is an painful retribution. And for he who is patient, perseveres (sabara: to persevere and keep one's charachter) and forgives and protects (ghafara: to protect against consequences) then that is an indication of strength." (42:38-43)

Dear Abdullahbashoeb,  
 
Beautiful explanation. One of the best few posts I have read so for on this blog.

Comments by: moazzam On 19 October 2010
Dear all : If we take this quran as the guide book for the life before death,than we should try to interpret(as the quran explain itself ) the quranic verses which reflect the guidance to the mankind in this life. Plz consolidate the verses 30/54--57 with the following arabic text. As the consecutive steps given in the following verse starts with the term 1:-baath الْبَعْثِ the essence of this term could be seen from the verse 82/4which means the time when the mankind will be at the highest peak of revealing all hidden knowledge.2:- تُرَابٍ / teen the essence of this term becomes more clear when EISA (pbuh) used it in verse 5/110,3/49,to make the people understand that by following the rasool / ALKITAB the whole society can achieve the highest position of dwelling with peace. 3:- نُطْفَةٍ the meaning of this term could be seen by the behavior giver in verse 75/36--37 4:ALAQA عَلَقَةٍ to know the essence of this term see the verse 75/37--39 now the next development stage of the society has been defined, the MANEEYEN YUMNA means its extreem desire.In verse 35/11 the next step after NUTFA in this verse will be considered as the elaboration of MUZGHA.5:- The behavior of طِفْلا TIFLA is defined in the verse 24/31,24/59 this is also the mental level of society..I think Mr Aurangzaib concluded rightly the whole verse given under. This verse is not for the creature of human being NOR its evolutionary process ,but the evolution of the society by following the divine guidance.  
يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ فِي رَيْبٍ مِنَ الْبَعْثِ فَإِنَّا خَلَقْنَاكُمْ مِنْ تُرَابٍ ثُمَّ مِنْ نُطْفَةٍ ثُمَّ مِنْ عَلَقَةٍ ثُمَّ مِنْ مُضْغَةٍ مُخَلَّقَةٍ وَغَيْرِ  
مُخَلَّقَةٍ لِنُبَيِّنَ لَكُمْ وَنُقِرُّ فِي الأرْحَامِ مَا نَشَاءُ إِلَى أَجَلٍ مُسَمًّى ثُمَّ نُخْرِجُكُمْ طِفْلا ثُمَّ لِتَبْلُغُوا أَشُدَّكُمْ وَمِنْكُمْ مَنْ يُتَوَفَّى وَمِنْكُمْ  
مَنْ يُرَدُّ إِلَى أَرْذَلِ الْعُمُرِ لِكَيْلا يَعْلَمَ مِنْ بَعْدِ عِلْمٍ شَيْئًا وَتَرَى الأرْضَ هَامِدَةً فَإِذَا أَنْزَلْنَا عَلَيْهَا الْمَاءَ اهْتَزَّتْ وَرَبَتْ وَأَنْبَتَتْ  
مِنْ كُلِّ زَوْجٍ بَهِيجٍ .No need to know the life at the time of mankind revolutionary process NOR the details of life after death.The actual need to mankind is, to take the guidance from this ALKITAB for this life (to make it more prosperous) Dr sahab zindabad.
