Alhamdulillah, Allah provides us with evidence for "creationism" in many ayaat. I was also curious, though, what modern Muslim scholars had to say to refute the theory of evolution, so I was happy to find these resources posted on Salaf-us-Saalih.com:
- Creation versus Evolution – Darwin’s Theory - by Saleh as Saleh [PDF]
- Orthodox Muslim Scholars on Darwinism and the Theory of Evolution - albaseerah.com
A compiled synopsis of what the Senior Scholars of orthodox Islam have to say about Charles Darwin’s theory about the evolution of species. a succinct response filled proofs from the Qur’an explaining the exact position of Islam on the matter! Indeed, this is a must read for anyone wanting to know Islam’s stance on this hot button issue in modern western society.
- Usamah Hasan, Darwinism, Evolutionary Forces and the Creation of Man - aqidah.com
The last resource was very detailed, as of this post, I'm still reading it and it really digs hard into the issue in response to a Muslim scholar who claims that evolution and Islamic creation co-exist.
At any rate, the take away, for me, is that Allah gives us proof of creation/creationism (through these readings I realized just how much proof there is in the Quraan) and that also, Allah has given us the information we need regarding the topic and He has provided proof. I've found that delving too far into the issue is not necessary, nor productive.
