For a Muslim, there is no need for separation between religion and science. The information given in the Qur’an is in full agreement with the findings of modern science. It is understood from the Qur’an, revealed over 1,400 years ago, that Allah has created everything in the universe and brought all life out of water.
He created humans from earth (not monkeys) and there is no need to attempt fabrications of “links” to the animal world in Islam.
