Sharing a Benefit With Fellow Muslim Teachers: [Three Important Affairs We Must Not Forget When Either Teaching The Physical Sciences Or When Engaged In Discussions About Them]
In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
Imaam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz [rahimahullaah] said:
Indeed, that which is stated by the astronomers about the celestial bodies, their sizes and the distance between them, and that which is said about the earth [i.e. by the geologists etc] is categorized into three affairs:
 That which is backed by the sound knowledge based proofs [i.e. the Sharee’ah], therefore it is accepted.  That which the knowledge based proofs [i.e. the sharee’ah] declares to be false, therefore it is rejected.  That which there is no proof to either accept or reject it, therefore it is unproven until a person from the people of knowledge [i.e. upright scholars of Ahlus Sunnah] examines it [i.e. examines what it indicates based on the Book and Sunnah] to show whether it should be accepted or rejected. As for accepting it without [sound] investigation and observation, but merely accepting it by blindly following them [i.e. the astronomers, geologists etc], then this is impermissible because of the numerous mistakes that occur as a result of that, and speaking -without knowledge – about Allaah and that which He has created [i.e. the entire universe and all that is within it].
