Belief In Darwin’s Theory of Evolution is Kufr That Will Remove a Person From The Fold of Islaam After The Proofs Are Established Against Him By The Upright Scholars

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.

Imaam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz [rahimahullaah] stated regarding the belief that the origin of the human is an ape:

This statement is evil, falsehood, an opposition to the Book of Allaah [The Mighty and Majestic], an opposition to the Sunnah of Allaah’s Messenger [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] and an opposition to the consensus of the pious predecessors of this Ummah. This statement is well known from Darwin and he is a liar regarding that which he has stated; rather the origin of the human being is his well-known state – neither an ape nor other than it, rather he was created as a rational human being from earth and that is our father Aadam [peace and blessings be upon him], just as Allaah [The Exalted] said:

وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الإِنسَانَ مِنْ سُلالَةٍ مِنْ طِينٍ

And indeed We created man (Adam) out of an extract of clay (water and earth). [Surah al-Muminoon. Aayah 12]

It is obligated on a servant to believe that Aadam was not an ape and that Aadam’s [alayhis salaam] origin is the same as what the human being is at present – neither an ape nor other than it. The statement that his original state was that of an ape is an evil statement and falsehood; rather if it is stated that the one who utters this statement has committed Kufr, then that would be considered a good reason for saying so. What is clearer – and Allaah knows best – is that the one who utters this statement [i.e. that Aadam’s origin is an ape] whilst knowing that which the Sharee’ah has brought regarding this affair, then he is a kaafir, because he has belied Allaah, belied Allaah’s Messenger and belied the Book of Allaah regarding the creation of Aadam. [Ref 1] NB: Takfeer [i.e. declaring a Muslim as an unbeliever or removing him from the fold of Islaam] has principles and passing this judgement against specific individuals is the job of the upright scholars. Read articles on this subject matter:

Imaam Muhammad Bin Saaleh Al-Uthaymeen [rahimahullaah] stated that it is tantamount to disbelief in Allaah to believe that the origin of the human being is an ape because it is a denial of the noble Qur’aan and the consensus of the Muslims [i.e. the scholars]. [Ref 2]

Al-Allaamah Muqbil Bin Haadee Al-Waadi’ee [rahimahullaah] stated about the theory of evolution: “This theory is considered Kufr (that exits a Muslim from Islam if he believes it). Read more on the link below from Shaikh Abu Khadeejah’s [hafidhahullaah] website:

Who Do The Contemporary Deviants- So Called Muslim Intellectuals – Follow In Their Views Regarding Evolution and What Do The Scholars of Jarh Wat-Tadeel Say About Him?

Answer: They follow a Mubtadi [an innovator in religious affairs] called Al-Jaahiz.

Who Is Al-Jaahiz?

Imaam adh-Dhahabi [rahimahullaah] said about Al-Jaahiz:

“He (i.e. Al-Jaahiz) was an insolent person, one who was very negligent in his practice of the religion and one who held strange views”. (3)

Imaam Adh-Dhahabi [rahimahullaah] said,

“It was apparent from Al-Jaahiz’s traits that he used to fabricate”. (4)

Imaam Adh-Dhahabi [rahimahullaah] said,

“He (i.e. Al-Jaahiz) was from the leaders of Bidah”. (5)

Imaam adh-Dhahabi [rahimahullaah] also said,

“He (i.e. Al-Jaahiz) was a fabricator of hadeeth”. (6)

Al-Baghdaadee [rahimahullaah] said,

“Al-Jaahiz used to transmit a lot of innovated beliefs in his books”. (7)
