Currently I am working on a philosophy paper, exploring the correlation between cause and effect, or in other words how present knowledge is wholly dependent upon past knowledge.

I was thinking of applying some reference or explanation based on Islam. Is there anything I can talk about, with respect to the hadiths or maybe something from the Quran with regards to the past and present dependency?

    Allah (ﷻ) said he "taught man that which he knew not" (Qur'an 96:5). So all of our present knowledge is dependent upon and builds upon that which Allah (ﷻ) taught us in the beginning. SubhanAllah. – Muslimah يا رب العالمين Oct 23 '19 at 11:57
