Muslims believe that Allah is the Creator and Sustainer of the universe; nothing exists except by His power and mercy. However, the process of creation was slow, taking place over many periods or eons. According to the most common interpretations, Islamic teachings about Creation do not contradict scientific research and evidence. Rather, Muslims recognize the order and balance in the natural world and see it as a sign of Allah's wisdom and power.
