According to the Qur’an, Hadith and the belief of all Muslims, Allah is the creator of life, however, is it also possible for a human to produce life? They’re some kinds of activities going on around the world, where the cloning of animals and humans, are done by humans.
Because of this, most people are confused thinking science will conquer religion some century to come.
Praise be to Allah the Greatest and may His blessing be upon the Prophet.
For Muslims to believe that Allah is the only Creator of life is a must, it is part of the Aqeeda. Many verses and hadith explain this a lot, among them.
Is Quran 67:1-2 (al-Mulk ) where Allah says “Blessed is He in Whose Hand is the dominion, and He is Able to do all things, Who has created death and life, that He may test you which of you is best in deed, and He is the All-Mighty, the Oft-Forgiving.”
And another verse read, “Is, then, He Who creates as one who creates not?”
Allah also says “Yet they have taken besides Him other gods that created nothing but are themselves created . . .”
Allah says in the Quran, where he challenged mankind to create something:
“O mankind! A similitude has been coined, so listen to it (carefully): verily! Those on whom you call besides Allah cannot create (even) a fly, even though they combine together for the purpose. And if the fly snatched away a thing from them, they would have no power to release it from the fly. So weak are (both) the seeker and the sought.”
To answer the cloning of animals and humans done by humans.
Imam Al-Bukhari reported in his Saheeh from Abu Sa‘eed (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (Peace & Blessings of Allah be upon Him) said: “There is no created being but Allah created it.”
In Arabic, the word “khalaqa” means to make out of nothing, which is something that only Allah can do; it is impossible for anyone except Allah to do this. It also carries the meaning of decreeing or foreordaining.
From Fath al-Bari Sharh Saheeh al-Bukhari, 13/390.
The Religion of Allah (Islam) is proud and cannot be defeated by the kaafirs’ arrogance about the knowledge they possess. Allah says:
“. . . [they] are deceived by the life of this world . . .”
“They know only the outside appearance of the life of this world, and they are heedless of the Hereafter.”
Only Allah is the creator of life and may he steadfast our adherence to His Religion, and to make us have a good ending.
And Allah knows best.
