notions, only if they come from the West….

فَلَمَّا عَتَوْاْ عَن مَّا نُهُواْ عَنْهُ قُلْنَا لَهُمْ كُونُواْ قِرَدَةً خَاسِئِينَ

So when they exceeded the limits of what they were prohibited, We said to them: “Be you monkeys, despised and rejected.”

7:166

Mufti Taqi Usmani writes in brief tafseer of the Qur’an:

I cannot help myself quoting here a comment by my late friend Prof. Muhammad Hasan Askari…

“Our modernists are, in fact, all too ready to swallow without batting an eyelid the most preposterous and unfounded notions, only if they come from the West. So they have complete certitude with regard to Darwin’s speculation, that the apes evolved into man, although no verifiable data has yet been gathered to support the contention, but when it comes to the statement in the Holy Qu’ran that men were changed into apes, they look askance at it. Although this kind of change is rationally and logically as possible as the other.”
