Can modern scientific theories reject the statements of Imams (peace be upon them)?

A QUESTION BY; AHMADI

THE ELABORATION OF THE QUESTION

 Hi, Mr. Qazvini

Imam Jafar Sadeq (peace be upon him) was a knowledgeable and scientific man pertaining to the fields of astronomy, chemistry, biology and … and also has presented some theories and ideas which some of them were right and the others are wrong. Then with respect to the accuracy and falsity of some of these theories and ideas which seemed accurate in his own time and now they are proved as wrong ideas then cannot these ideas call into question his view pertaining to the religious and Islamic issues and is not possible that His Holiness has made mistake regarding these issues as well? I will be grateful if you e-mail the answers of these questions

RESPONSE

The infallibility of Ahl Al-Bayt (peace be upon them) and their relation with the divine fountain of knowledge is a certain and proven reason for us thus all of the comments and statements which have been quoted from His Holiness is just like the comments of the holy prophet of GOD (peace and bless of GOD be upon him and his progeny) that

« وَمَا يَنطِقُ عَنِ الهَوَي إن هُوَ إلَّا وَحيٌ يُوحَي» سوره نجم آيه 3و4

 ‘’Nor does he speak out of desire.’’ ‘’It is naught but revelation that is revealed’’ the chapter Najm (The Star) verses 3, 4

And as there is no mistake and error in the revelation and statements of the holy prophet of GOD (peace and bless of GOD be upon him and his progeny) then there will be no mistake and error in His Holiness’ remarks and statements as well

With this precondition, we have to take into account two key points pertaining to the narrations about various sciences which have been quoted from Aemah (peace be upon them) that

1,THE PROOF OF THE NARRATIONS

  Since until we do not make sure pertaining to the accuracy of the proofs then it is not adequate to attribute that comments to Ahl Al-Bayt (peace be upon them) and we are not allowed to do such a thing

2, THE LIKELIHOOD OF ERROR OF THE MODERN THEROIES

Up to 30 years before the theory of Darvin pertaining to the evolution among the various creatures and not in a specific specie was a widely accepted theory and it has been discussed among various scientific circles and with referral to this theory the majority of the western scientists rejected the accuracy of the statement of GOD which has been mentioned in the holy Qur’an pertaining to the creation of Adam for earth and claimed that mankind is the evolutionary form of the mankind Nenanoterdal and that specie is the evolutionary type of Chimpanzee

But with the advancement of the sciences it became evident that the theory of Darvin evolution, was a wrong theory and their claim pertaining to the falsity of the Qur’an is a mistake

And the same issue will be accurate pertaining to the scientific theories of Ahl Al-Bayt (peace be upon them) as well

GOOD LUCK
