Islamic views on evolution are diverse, ranging from theistic evolution to Old Earth creationism. Usaama al-Azami suggested that both narratives of creation and of evolution, as understood by modern science, may be believed by modern Muslims as addressing two different kinds of truth, the revealed and the empirical.
