1 Ahmed M = "Muslims can't separate religion and science. The Quran, which was revealed more than 1400 years ago, reveals that there is both: creation and evolution."
2 Ahmed M = "Muslims scientists pioneered advancement in disciplines of science one thousand years ago; they encouraged learning in technology and various other aspects. Unfortunately, modern Muslims are not as fast-paced and adaptive."
3 Ahmed M = "In the Quran, Allah has explained, how He created everything in the universe and how he created life in water. He says that he created human beings from earth; not from monkeys as explained by Darwin. "
4 Sahil B = "One has to be very careful to state that the Quran says one thing and therefore it contradicts something explained by science. As there is no central authority in Islam, there is no one to decide which interpretation is correct or incorrect; thus, the same verses in the Quran have been read in multiple ways. Some phrases are not read literally as the Quran itself states that God speaks to the believers in allegories and symbols. So here, there is no one interpretation that states that science is against Islam. There are Muslims who believe science is against religion; on the other hand, there are Muslims who believe science is not against their religion and that science compliments their religion. Both perspectives are valid. "
