ALLIANCE IN THE INTELLECTUAL STRUGGLE
Muslims and the Peoples of the Book Must Join Forces
to Explain the Fact of Creation
Protecting Mankind From the Disasters of Darwinism
Throughout the course of history a great many deceptive ideologies have been produced,
such as communism, fascism, anarchism, racism and atheism. These all offer false analyses
and definitions of man, society and the universe, and many people deceived by them have lost
their faith or fallen into doubt. Furthermore, these ideologies have dragged people, societies
and nations into terrible crises, conflicts and wars, and have inflicted catastrophes on the
world. They bear a large part of the responsibility for the suffering, problems and crises still
going on in the world today.
There is another striking point here which we need to consider. The ideologies in question
rest on a common foundation, the allegedly scientific idea of Darwin's theory of evolution, as
go about denying creation and the Creator. The idea of evolution is the basis of anti-religious
Although the theory of evolution has been doggedly defended since the mid-19th century
right up to the present, scientific discoveries over the intervening 150 years demonstrate that
the theory is actually no more than unscientific nonsense. Yet no matter how much scientific
advances have undermined all the claims of evolution, those circles are still engaged in a
wide-ranging effort to keep the theory alive. The sole reason for that is that the theory is used
as a means of denying the existence of God.
It is certainly the case that behind so-called evolution or so-called science is intense overt
or covert propaganda. Newspapers, advertising posters, books, films, television
documentaries and the Internet are all full of messages denying creation and the Creator.
Whereas the fact is that people are actually surrounded on all sides by evidence of creation.
Everything we see around us, everything in the universe, from the cells in our bodies to the
galaxies in the depths of outer space, was created by God. The perfection, glorious artistry,
magnificent order and superb design in all these things are proofs of His creation. This fact is
stated in the Bible:
God, which made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and
all things that are therein. (Acts 14, 15)
I give thee charge in the sight of God, who quickeneth
all things...(1 Timothy 6, 13)
The news that God created everything, gave it order and approved of it is also given in
He to whom the kingdom of the heavens and the earth
belongs. He does not have a son and He has no partner in the Kingdom.
He created everything and determined it most exactly. (Surat al-Furqan:
The Originator of the heavens and earth. When He decides
on something, He just says to it, 'Be!' and it is. (Surat al-Baqara:
Let us Join Forces to Explain the Existence
of God and His Creation
Jews, Christians and Muslims believe in the existence of God, in His oneness, that the
whole universe and all living things were created by Him, and that people must regulate their
lives according to His revelations. The concept of morality and ideal social model described
in the Bible and in the Qur'an agree in many respects. Jews, Christians and Muslims need to
draw closer to one another in a spirit of great respect and love built on these foundations. The
call in the Qur'an for people to 'unite around a common word' must be implemented in the
best possible way by the members of all three religions.
God has created the difficult as well as the easy. He has given believers the means and
the evidence with which to demolish the deniers' twisted and deviant philosophies. Everyone
who listens to the voice of his conscience and examines nature and the universe honestly and
without prejudice will see the proofs of creation all around him. Everything, animate or
inanimate, is full of messages revealing God to us. We are surrounded by signs that clearly
indicate His existence and oneness.
The greatest nonsense put forward by those who deny the existence of God is the claim
that everything, living and non-living, came about as the result of chance. In order to
overthrow this superstition that these people are trying to spread, we need to examine the
evidence for creation all around us in the light of modern science and then tell others about it.
People of good conscience who thus clearly see the magnificent structures and perfect design
in living things and millions of sensitive balances around us will realise that these could not
have occurred by chance, but that everything was created by God, the Lord of Infinite Might.
That will thus destroy the idea of 'chance' which the deniers are attempting to propagate.
The proofs of creation, of His existence and oneness, of His infinite might, knowledge
and art include all the different information and facts before our eyes. These are a means by
which people can realise the existence of God and turn towards Him.
Placing the many proofs of creation, which the heedless see every day around them but
fail to understand, and the full details of the perfection in them before the eyes of such people
will be highly effective in doing away with that heedlessness. There are a great many signs of
faith which everybody sees all the time yet which few people stop to think about. The human
body on its own is an enormous proof of creation. Our eyes are a great deal more complex
than and superior to the most advanced cameras in the world. All the systems in our bodies
function in great harmony and equilibrium. Our internal organs carry out chemical processes,
which even giant laboratories could never hope to do, in the most perfect manner. In order to
do away with this culture of heedlessness and replace it with one built on gratitude and
obedience to God, Jews, Christians and Muslims need to wok together.
Many verses of the Qur'an call on people to consider the facts we have just related, and to
see and understand these proofs of the existence and greatness of God. The following are
just a few of the hundreds of verses on the subject:
Do you not see how He created seven heavens in layers, and placed
the moon as a light in them and made the sun a blazing lamp? Allah
caused you to grow from the earth then will return you to it and
bring you out again. Allah has spread the earth out as a carpet
for you so that you could use its wide valleys as roadways. (Surah
The whole universe is full of countless such details, yet as we have just seen, most people
never stop to think about them in their daily lives. That is why communicating the aspects of
the proofs of creation that people have never considered will encourage them to do so and be
most influential in getting them to recognise the power and might of God.
Every sincere Christian, Jew and Muslim has an obligation to do all he can in this light.
The best thing that Jews, Christians and Muslims, who believe in one God, try to attain His
good pleasure, have completely surrendered themselves to Him, are totally devoted to Him,
praise Him and share the same fundamental values, can do is to act in unison.
An end needs to be put to the arguments and debates between Christians, Jews and
Muslims based on historical problems, prejudices, misunderstandings and bigotry. We must
not forget that there is no time to lose. It is clear that both sides need to approach each other in
a spirit of compassion and understanding. The important thing is to stress the points we have in
common, not the differences between us, to facilitate rather than create difficulties, to be
constructive rather than destructive, to be helpful rather than obstructive, to unify rather than
