An Imam at a mosque in the East End of London has been threatened and abused for giving a lecture in which he said that the theory of Evolution does not necessarily contradict the Holy Quran.
In this series of khutbas I hope it can be shown that this imam was correct. People forget that there are two parts to evolution. There is the evolution of the universe and human evolution. And although each needs separate treatment. However, the basis of evolution is development.
The first khutba sets the background for evolution is describing what is called the scientific method and how science develops its theories to explain observation. In the second one, I hope to deal with evolution of the universe and the last one human evolution.
