How does the Qur'an compare to the Book of Genesis on the great events of history (Creation, Fall, Flood and confusion of languages)


The Islamic creationists

The creationist Muslims claim that “The theory [of evolution] and the holy Qur’an are in direct conflict with each other and no compatibility is possible anywhere.”4 New Scientist reported that Islamic creationist books city and copy Christian creationists, but with Biblical references deleted.[ 5]

2. The Islamic evolutionists

Evolution-believing Muslims seem to be far more numerous, and vocal, than creationist Muslims.

They have a substantial strategic advantage precisely because the Qur’an is so vague, nebulous and seemingly open to various interpretations.[6] They delight in pointing out that, in contrast, “There is absolutely no ambiguity whatsoever in the Biblical description of the Creation in six days followed by a day of rest, the sabbath, analogous with the days of the week.”[7] These evolution-accommodating Muslims are adamant that the “days” of Creation in the Qur’an “mean in reality 'very long Periods, or Ages, or Aeons.'”7]

Muslim apologists gleefully point out that the Qur’an is compatible with evolution where the Bible is not, e.g.: “Neither here nor anywhere else in the Holy Qur’an is it affirmed that Adam was the first man, or that there was no creation by God before Adam, nor that Adam lived or man was created, or the earth made, only six thousand years ago.”[8,9]

Long-age Muslims exploit the Bible’s explicit detail of the Flood, too. They say that because the Bible clearly says there was a recent global Flood, while “science” says there was not, the Bible is wrong and the Qur’an is thus confirmed to be right![10] Some of the Muslim literature even claims that the Qur’an shows that Allah revealed to Muhammad details about the “big bang”, ancient universe and evolution long before scientists began to “discover” such “facts”.[11]

Read quran and it will guided us to the true teaching of The Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) he summarized the religion of Islam with this statement: “The Religion is naseehah (sincerity)!” So then Tameem ibn Aws, may Allah be pleased with him, then said, “We asked, ‘To whom?’” He said: “To Allah, HIS BOOK holy quran, His Messenger, the leaders of the people, and their common folk.” [Muslim] so to study the religion people should go to the source of and source of Islam is the quran so learning quran and reading quran with the meaning the quran tafsir and then explore the words of wisdom. And for the Muslims the sincerity that is due to the Book of Allah includes doing the quran recitation, listening to quran along with learning the tajweed rules and reciting it beautifully, letting our kids learn quran learning holy quran tafseer and the reasons for its revelation, affirming that it is the Truth, the perfect Speech of Allah and not part of the creation, honoring it and defending it, abiding by the orders and prohibitions found in it and teaching quran to spread the word or truth and calling to it. So by learning quran education online and reflecting over the Quran online, one fulfills an obligation and is rewarded for that. Upon fulfilling this obligation, the Quran then becomes a proof for him on the Day of Judgment! And that is our second benefit we will take by embracing this Noble Book...
