Human cloning or human reproduction through nonsexual transplantation is an interdisciplinary issue that has been discussed by researchers from different dimensions, including theological dimension and perspective of science, religion, and health. Since some scientific discoveries, such as human simulation, are related to human beliefs, several religious scholars have shown special sensitivity to religious teachings and consider such discoveries to be contrary to the divine verses and religious beliefs; accordingly, in the case of human cloning, they banned it. Therefore, it is necessary to study and examine the evidence of their violation and show that scientific discoveries may not only not weaken beliefs but also strengthen faith. As a result, there is a kind of interference in this sacred domain, based on God's special monotheistic viewpoint, which both disrupts and weakens the belief in God.
The present study is a content analysis with the design and expression of verbal evidence on the prohibition of human cloning - regardless of the type of religion - and its evaluation to determine whether human cloning is of creation type, and human beings with this technology actually do the work of God and fail to worship God? According to the obtained results, it was revealed that God's creativity and cause in relation to the world and beings lay along the material causes and factors, not within it. In addition, this is only the God who creates, and scientific discoveries, including human cloning, not only undermine the belief in God but also strengthen it, indicative of the greatness of the Lord.
