Assalamwalekum May Allah blessed you for doing such a wonderful thing for Islam.


I just want to know did Dinosour existed? Because as far as I know the first life on earth was Adam Massalam. Science had proved the existence of dinosour.Did Quran mentioned anything about them or it is possible that the sceintific evidence are false and scientist are just raising issues about dinosaur to gain fame and money.

Did dinosaurs exist

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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Your Question: I just want to know did Dinosour existed?

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 46 Surah Ahqaaf verse 3:

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. Not only every creature is created by the One and Only Creator Allah Subhanah, but its very nature, its sustenance, and its return will be back to Him.


Your Question: Because as far as I know the first life on earth was Adam Massalam.

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verses 29-30:

29 It is He (Allah) who hath created for you all things that are on earth; moreover His design comprehended the heavens for He gave order and perfection to the seven firmaments; and of all things he hath perfect knowledge.

30 Behold thy Lord (then) said to the Angels: "I will create a vicegerent on earth." They said "Wilt thou place therein one who will make mischief therein and shed blood? Whilst we do celebrate Thy praises and glorify Thy holy (name)?" He said: "I know what ye know not."


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 57 Surah Hadid verses 1-5:

1 Whatever is in the heavens and on earth let it declare the Praises and Glory of Allah: for He is the Exalted in Might the Wise.

2 To Him belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth; it is He Who gives life and death; and He has Power over all things.

3 He is the First and the Last the Evident and the Immanent: and He has full knowledge of all things.

4 He it is Who created the heavens and the earth in Six Days and is moreover firmly established on the Throne (of Authority). He knows what enters within the earth and what comes forth out of it what comes down from heaven and what mounts up to it. And He is with you wheresoever ye may be. And Allah sees well all that ye do.

5 To Him belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth: and all affairs are referred back to Allah.


In light of the above quoted and various other verses of the Glorious Quran, it is absolutely evident that rather than man being the first creation on earth, the human creation is amongst the last creations of Allah Subhanah. Before the Lord created and sent man on this earth, the Lord had already created the seven heavens and the earth and all that exists in it. Thus it is not accurate to believe that man was the first creation of Allah Subhanah on earth.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s 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 and well wisher in Islam,
