Using the Quraan to prove the theory of evolution

Q: Can the verse of the Quran in Surah 76, verse 1 explain the theory of evolution?

A: Please do not use the Quraan Shareef as a scientific book. What do you refer to by evolution, for these theories have not yet been proved. They are just a hypothesis to leave and abandon all the statements that are found in the hadith and Quraan Shareef pertaining to the beginning of creation and pursuing a scientific theory that cannot yet be proven. Isn't that being unfair and ridiculous.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
