In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 46 Surah Ahqaaf verse 3: We (Allah) created not the heavens and the earth and all between them but for just ends, and for a term appointed.
If through the sciences of exploration and study man has recorded the discovery of the remains of pre-human creatures that roamed on this earth, then it must be accepted as a scientific fact that such creatures (dinosaurs, etc.) did really exist.
What is important for the believers to believe is that regardless of what existed, what exists, and what will come into existence in the future.everything, absolutely everything in existence without exception, has the same One and Only Creator Who created the heavens and the earth and everything that exists in between: Allah Subhanah wa Taala.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
