"Islam does not have a story that has literal elements of Genesis. Though creatonist literature abounds in Mosque bookstores, it doesn't take into account the fact the the Qur'an has a very unique view on the origin of life which is different from the one professed in fundamental Christianity.
It is sad and disturbing that Muslim ulama, unschooled in science, have not grasped the very accurate Qur'anic concept of the origin of life on this planet earth billions of years ago and its gradual development into human beings spreading over a span of billions of years.
The Quran speaks of creation only in step by step progressive stages and categorically rejects the concept of spontaneous generation as is mentioned in Genesis." [Koran and Evolution]
