Taner Edis discusses the sad situation in his excellent book, An illusion of harmony. There is no necessary link between Islam and separate creation (although all of nature is seen there as divinely created), but the literalists and obscurantists claim that there is, just like their Christian counterparts, and the level of acceptance of the basic fact of evolution is far lower in the Moslem world than it is in the west. In the UK, CofE and Catholics both support evolution as material fact. In Saudi Arabia, there was a standup fight about it between the Imams and the royal family, but the royal family did succeed in getting evolution taught in their new University. Not in the schools, though. In the UK, we had the sad spectacle of when Dawkins visited a Moslem school a while back, and found the biology teacher there delighted that her pupils rejected evolution because if evolution is true, why are there still monkeys.
The more fiercely concerned a group is to maintain its separate identity, the more vulnerable it will be to the moral blackmail of those who say "If you don't prefer my garbage to their science, you're one of them and not one of us". Part of why denominational schools are such an insane policy.
Yahya/Oktar has teams of disciples cutting and pasting any old creocrap, so tracing an origin for any particular bit is difficult; you can't do a meaningful phylogeny if there is too much meme transfer.
