What Islam say about dinosaurs?

What islam say about dinosaurs?

Islam agrees with science, whether they existed does not matter:
“Glory be to Him Who created all the pairs: from what the earth produces and from themselves and from things unknown to them.”Ya-Sin {36:36}

“… And He creates other things that you do not know.”Nahl {16:8}
The rest of this is from a contact of mine:
((The reason people are not finding a verse about dinosaurs could be due to the fact that they haven’t understood the entire Quran. Also, lots of people would just say it’s not there because they haven’t seen it or read the Quran entirely while understanding it 100% to be able to say it does.
The term ‘dinosaur’ is also the modern word of what those creatures were called thousands of years ago. We do not know what those creatures were referred to exactly, but we can only study the Quran further to make that decision, if it indeed exists in the Quran.
For an example, a lot of people used the excuse of how there is no verse that implies that women have to wear the Hijab (headscarf) and point out only one ayah (verse) that tells women to dress modestly. Of course, that is based on their knowledge of the Quran, little do they know that there exists two more versus that relate to the Headscarf and makes it compulsory. Just because they don’t know about it, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.
Everyday or every decade, we discover something new. Whether it be a more clear understanding of what we thought a verse meant, or a complete shift in our views. Islam is over 1400 years old, and to this day we still find something new out, and we still don’t completely understand the Quran. Some verses have literal implications, others an underlining meaning or message.
Now, that does not prove that there is a verse about dinosaurs in the Quran, but suggests that it may actually exist in the Quran but has not yet been identified. We do not know what God refers to as ‘dinosaurs’ in the Quran, but we do know that there is a verse that discusses ‘giant creatures/beasts (Dabbah)’ in verse 2:164 from the Holy Quran: “…in the beasts of all kinds that He scatters through the earth…are signs for a people that are wise”
The same word ‘Dabbah’ is used the in the verse 24:45: “And God has created every animal from water: of them are some that creep on their bellies; some that walk on two legs; and some that walk on four. God creates what he wills…” There is another verse in the Quran that I found very interesting – Al-Araf:56 “work not confusion in the earth after the fair ordering thereof” which describes how the earth had been “repaired/reordered/restored”, suggesting there had been commotion or some problematic event on earth and was restored. It warns the believers to not cause confusion on earth.
Then again, that could mean a whole different thing. But, I do believe, even though the Quran is meant mainly to guide the believers, that there may be some verse that might further explain life millions of years ago.))
