We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

Dear sister, the theory of evolution given by the darvin first and foremost is not a scientific fact; it is only a hypothesis and has not been proven to be true. Darvin himself accepted that he does not have any proof to prove his theory. There is a huge difference between a theory and a scientific fact, the theory can take U-turns i.e. can be either proven wrong or right, they are open to challenge and change, where as the scientific facts are established and cannot be changed or challenged, let me give you some example, some years ago there was a theory that stated that moon had its own light, but today it is a scientific fact that the moon has not its own light. In another theory it was stated that the planet earth is flat, but today we know that the earth is spherical in shape, so some theories can become scientific facts, but a scientific fact can never become a theory.

The majority of the scientists today disagree that the darvins theory is true as a whole, however due to the lack of alternative, this theory is still taught in the schools worldwide.

Dear sister, the glorious quran is the book of facts and has passed every test of science, be it biology, astronomy, zoology, etc. The Glorious Quran might go against theories, but it will never ever go against an established scientific fact, a Muslim should be firm in his belief on the glorious quran.

Allah says in the glorious Quran: It is He (Allah) Who created you from clay and decreed a fixed term of life for you, and with Him there is another settled term also! Yet you have doubts thereof. Quran [6:2]

O mankind! Fear your Lord, Who created you of a single soul (Adam); and of the same created his mate (Hawwa); and from that pair spread countless men and women over the earth. Quran [4:1]

Dear sister, there is absolutely no harm if one attempts a question on evolution, and writes down what the theory of evolution says, and if in the seminar one is going to discuss the theory of evolution one should remind the listeners that the theory of evolution is nothing but a theory and not a fact.

Dear sister, taking of loans itself is not haram, it is the ribah or interest that is haram in Islam, if one takes a loan from an individual or company without an interest then there is absolutely no harm, but if any interest is applied then it is absolutely harm to take such a loan. And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
