Al-Salam-`alaikum. I am just curious...We know that Adam (peace be upon him) was the first human being in the world. How does this fact apply to the other animals? Did they come into existence on the Earth before him in a similar manner? How would you then explain the presence of dinosaurs? May Allah reward you for your answer.

I am intending to study Biotechnology at university but was wondering what the Islamic ruling would be regarding gene manipulation? (Example: inserting a gene into an animal to make it bigger for humans to consume as food).

I came across a statement in the Sunnah wherein the Prophet (peace be upon him) says: “Yes indeed. A man’s fluid is thick and white and a women’s fluid is thin and yellow. Whichever of the two ejaculates first will be the one the child would resemble.” Does a woman does actually ejaculate? And isn’t resemblance based on genetic make-up and not on which partner ejaculates first?

Does Islam teach that there is no such thing as contagious disease? There is a hadîth where the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “There is no contagious disease…” If Islam teaches this, is it not then going against science? Also, if I get a contagious disease (conjunctivitis, for instance), should I refrain from attending the mosque to avoid spreading the disease?

Is it true that the Prophet (peace be upon him) told us to dunk the fly into our drink if it falls into it? If so, how do we explain this scientifically? Also, are we required in Islam to do this even if we do not want to?

I read that the reason why there are people of different skin color is because Allah created them from different soil. What should our position then be when it comes to what we are taught in school, that it is due to climate and evolution? Could it be said that the reason why there are people with different skin color is because of the different soil used, but that the purpose/benefit of this is that it fits with the climate?

I recall someone interpreting verses in the Qur'an (7:80-81) as indicating that animals cannot exhibit homosexual behavior. Is this a correct interpretation?

I made an e-mail account for one of my friends, and I found out he had been using it for sinful purposes, so I closed his e-mail account without telling him and I do not want him to know. Is that permissible or not?
