LOOKING AT EVENTS FROM THE FUTURE
A believer’s awareness that he is being tested leads him to look at events from the future. But what does “looking at events from the future” actually mean?
However great the troubles and difficulties confronting a person may be, the situation is definitely only temporary. Someone may be falsely accused of a crime and subjected to injustice, for example. Yet there will definitely come a time when the truth emerges. Even if the suffering of a person does not come to an end in this world, those responsible for that injustice will receive due retribution on the Day of Judgement. In the same way, the person who suffered injustice can hope for a splendid reward for his patience on that day. Time passes very quickly and, like everything else, this state of affairs will come to an end in the mere blink of an eye. In addition, the Qur’an reveals that hardship comes with ease for Muslims:
For truly with hardship comes ease; truly with hardship comes ease. (Surat Al-Inshirah, 5-6)
A believer trusts in our Lord’s infinite justice, expects the ease that will follow hardship, and never falls into despair in the face of any situation. He remembers that the difficulties he experiences will re-appear before him as delights in this world and in the next.
A Muslim knows that he is watching the destiny. One delightful aspect of this secret is that he watches everything in spirit of trusting Allah, submission and resignation.
We must not forget that this is a state of mind unique to true believers in God, one that only those who are completely submitted to destiny can fully experience. People who are heedless of religion, on the other hand, fall prey to despair, fear and stress because of their failure to submit to destiny, and imagine that there is no way out for them. Since they have no hopes or expectation for the Hereafter, they are always restless and troubled. The state of mind of such people is described as follows in another verse:
When Allah desires to guide someone, He expands his breast to Islam. When He desires to misguide someone, He makes his breast narrow and constricted as if he were climbing up into the sky. That is how Allah defiles those who do not believe. (Surat al-An‘am, 125)
This troubled state of mind described in the verse is a self-inflicted wound that stems from these people’s failure to submit to the destiny created by God. The fact that God, the Omniscient and Almighty, directs a person’s destiny and rules all things is a great blessing for a believer. However, people whose faith is weak or who have no faith at all are unable to comprehend the value of that blessing. They are therefore unable to resign themselves to destiny and are troubled at every moment of their lives. This condition is actually a spiritual reward for lack of trust in Allah imposed in the life of this world. These people merely wrong themselves.
Allah does not wrong people in any way; rather it is people who wrong themselves. (Surah Yunus, 44)
Colors of the Undersea
Life under the surface of the sea is very different from on land. All the features of sea-dwelling creatures are organized in such a way as to enable them to live in water in the easiest way possible. Humans cannot see in water as well as do fish, because the human eye does not have the features that would allow it to attain sharp eyesight underwater. The human eye does not have a lens system such as that of the fish, and is not spherical and hard like that of a fish, so it does not have as sharp sight underwater as the fish. It cannot allow as precisely as fish do for foreshortening of distances in the water due to refraction, as it cannot estimate the refraction of light in water.
God has created every living being with the most suitable characteristics for the environment it inhabits. Creatures living under the sea constitute only a small part of the examples of God's artistry in creation. God has no partner in creation and everything is under His control.
There is no deity besides God. God – He is the Almighty, the All-Wise. (Surah Al' Imran, 62)
SCOURGES STEMMING FROM DARWINISM: COMMUNISM, FASCISM, SATANISM AND TERROR II
Darwin Was a Racist Who Espoused the Elimination of Races He Regarded As Inferior
RACISM, WHICH EQUATES AFRICANS WITH "APES"
This drawing reflects the theory of Social Darwinism which developed in the 19th century. The branches of the tree contain a chimpanzee, a gorilla, an orangutang and an African. This villainous hatred of black-skinned people was one of the founding principles of Nazism.
Charles Darwin, the founder of the theory of evolution, based the development of living things and human beings on the concept of the struggle for life. According to that view, there is a ruthless struggle for life, a permanent state of conflict, in nature. Darwin suggested that this struggle also applied between human races and claimed that it contributed to the progress of civilization by eliminating (so-called) inferior races. Darwin’s views on the Turkish nation are described as follows in the book “The Life and Letters of Charles Darwin,” collected by his son:
“I could show fight on natural selection having done and doing more for the progress of civilization than you seem inclined to admit. Remember what risk the nations of Europe ran, not so many centuries ago of being overwhelmed by the Turks, and how ridiculous such an idea now is! The more civilised so-called Caucasian races have beaten the Turkish hollow in the struggle for existence. Looking to the world at no very distant date, what an endless number of the lower races will have been eliminated by the higher civilised races throughout the world.” 1
Darwin also regarded negroes and native Australians as inferior races, and even equated these civilized peoples with “gorillas.”
At some future period, not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilized races of man will almost certainly exterminate, and replace, the savage races throughout the world. At the same time the anthropomorphous apes ... will no doubt be exterminated. The break between man and his nearest allies will then be wider, for it will intervene between man in a more civilized state, as we may hope, even than the Caucasian, and some ape as low as a baboon, instead of as now between the Negro or Australian and the gorilla. 2
Darwin’s words are clear: he suggests that the races he regards as inferior will soon be ELIMINATED by the Europeans. He describes the Europeans he hopes will do this as “civilised races” and describes other modern civilized societies as, in his eyes, “inferior races.”
The terror that grew up within that Darwinian perspective is responsible for World War II that cost the lives of millions of people and to the scourge of terrorism that has killed thousands in so many countries today. Therefore, it is DARWINISM and DARWINISM alone that represents the key to the terrible scourges and problems facing the world today. Darwin brought nothing but oppression, war, slaughter, death, degeneration, terror and affliction to societies. Darwinism is the worst mass deception in history and the basic foundation of all bloody ideologies.
Scourges can only be brought to an end by anti-Darwinist education
That being the case, at a time when people, women, children and the elderly, are being killed as a result of the terror nourished by Darwinism, when heretical ideologies such as communism and fascism were responsible for the bloodiest period in history, it is incomprehensible for people with materialist and Darwinist mindsets to come together and publish many pages in praise of Darwin and blindly persist in Darwinist propaganda. It is very dangerous to use the state and publications paid for by the taxpayer to defend Darwin, who described civilized nations as “inferior races” and even went as far as to claim they should be ELIMINATED, and Darwinism, the foundation behind communism and fascism, scourges affecting the whole world, and behind the PKK terror in Turkey.
Darwinism has today been refuted by all branches of science. More than 100 million fossils representing 250,000 different species have been unearthed. BUT NOT ONE IS A TRANSITIONAL FOSSIL. Therefore, these 100 million fossils ALL REFUTE DARWINISM AND SUPPORT CREATION. All the fossils discovered belong to perfect, flawless and unchanged life forms. It has today been proved that it is impossible for even a single protein to form by chance. The magnificent DNA molecule, that we now know contains enough information to fill 1 million encyclopedia pages, has demolished all Darwinist claims. It has been realized that natural selection cannot add any new information to living things, and that mutations only INFLICT HARM on living things. THERE IS NOT ONE SINGLE PIECE OF EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT DARWINISM. Darwinists have been shown, in the face of this lack of any evidence, to resort to FRAUD, THE MANUFACTURE OF HOAX FOSSILS AND TO HIDING AWAY FOSSILS THAT PROVE CREATION. All Darwinist frauds have been exposed, but Darwinist propaganda has been maintained with a huge deception DESPITE THIS LACK OF ANY SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE.
Avoiding any mention of these scientific facts, defending the heretical religion that is Darwinism, the origin of bloody terror, and heaping praise on Darwin, a racist fascist, merely wastes people’s time. People now know that Darwinism is a fraud, one that has been scientifically refuted. Trying to force people to believe in a deception in the face of all this certain scientific evidence is pointless. What needs to be done is to admit that Darwinism, a heretical religion, has collapsed in the light of all the scientific facts. Countries can only be freed from the scourge of terror that afflicts them through anti-Darwinist education and propaganda.

Belief in Creation in Europe Continues to Grow Thanks to the Atlas of Creation - 27.02.2009
Fertile ground. Turkish creationist Harun Yahya’s
antievolution tome went down well in parts of Europe.
On 27 February, 2009, the weekly international magazine Science, published in the USA, carried as report titled “Creationist Beliefs Persist in Europe.” The report stated that various instances of the rise in Creationist belief in Europe had been cited at a conference held in the German city of Dortmund. The report noted the great change in Europe in the wake of the Atlas of Creation. Some of the developments at the conference, which emphasized that evolution is in its death throes, were reported as follows by Science magazine:
“INDEED, CREATIONISM REMAINS ALIVE AND WELL IN EUROPE,
according to researchers gathered here [Germany] last week for a conference on the state of European science education and European teachers' attitudes toward and knowledge of evolution. European educators haven't yet conducted regionwide surveys, but SNAPSHOTS FROM GERMANY, TURKEY, AND THE UNITED KINGDOM
presented at the meeting SHOWED THAT CREATIONIST NOTIONS ARE MORE PREVALENT THAN RESEARCHERS HAD EXPECTED...
Even the birthplace of Charles Darwin is struggling with evolution... "CREATIONISM IS ON THE RISE IN THE UK,"
says James Williams, a lecturer in science education at the University of Sussex. ...
... CREATIONISM IS EVEN MORE DEEPLY ENTRENCHED IN THE MUSLIM WORLD,
according to a study of teachers reported by Universite Lyon 1 researcher Pierre Clement. ... And TURKEY HAS ALSO SEEN A RECENT RISE OF AN ISLAMIC CREATIONIST MOVEMENT ...”
Three Thousand Foreigners Have Become Muslims in Dubai / Timeturk / 03.02.2009
Some 3,000 people, mainly women and from various different faiths, are reported to have converted to Islam in Dubai, the commercial capital of the United Arab Emirates last year. This figure represents a 71% increase in the number of converts in 2007.
In an annoucement to the media, Dr. Hamad Bin al-Shaban said, “We are spreading Islamic culture and our national identity by way of mosques, Qur’anic sciences, the Islamic legacy, research and philanthropic activities and thus ensuring our message reaches large numbers of people in an appropriate manner.”
Al-Shaban also said that the message of Islam was being transmitted by qualified religious figures using advanced technology. The department concerned was reported to show special interest in new converts, to provide appropriate visual and audio materials and to hold education seminars in all languages.
Atheists’ greatest dream is to create a society of robotic, insensitive and desensitized indiciduals with no fear of Allah. In recent years, however, atheists have totally failed in their ambition of establishing a society that denies the existence of Allah on the basis of no evidence whatsoever (surely He is beyond that) that has turned its back on religion and only attaches any importance to matter and material things. The theory of evolution, put forward to replace the fact of Creation, has been scientifically proved to be the greatest lie of the last century. Consciences of people have been opened up as it has emerged how the world has been deceived by fraud on the subject of evolution. This has allowed them to be freed from the dark spell of Darwinism and to see Allah’s creative artistry and come to believe.
None of the methods atheists have used to try and get rid of religion have been able to prevent the turning toward faith, and the return to religious devotion is continuing at full speed. The reason for this is that Almighty Allah protects the true faith. He will cause it to prevail, against the wishes of the deniers. This is the true promise of Allah, the Omnipotent and Creator of the universe and all living things. Allah is He who keeps His promises:
“When you have seen people entering Allah’s religion in droves, then glorify your Lord’s praise and ask His forgiveness. He is the Ever-Returning.” (Surat an-Nasr, 2-3)
120 million years
Mesozoic Age, Cretaceous
Liaoning Province, China
The theory of evolution claims that birds evolved from small therapod dinosaurs—in other words, from reptiles. The fact is, however, that anatomical comparisons between birds and reptiles refute this claim, as does the fossil record.
The fossil pictured belongs to an extinct species of bird known as Confuciusornis, the first specimen of which was discovered in China in 1995. Confuciusornis bears a very close resemblance to present-day birds and has demolished the scenario of bird evolution that evolutionists have proposed for decades.
In describing the imaginary evolution of birds, evolutionists for years used the bird known as Archæopteryx as evidence. All the subsequent scientific findings made, however, show this claim to be untrue. The Conficiusornis fossil is another piece of evidence showing that Archæopteryx cannot be the supposed forerunner of birds.
This bird, from the same period as Archæopteryx (around 140 million years ago), has no teeth. Its beak and feathers have the same characteristics as those of present-day birds. Its skeletal structure is also identical to that of modern-day birds, and it has talons on its wings, as does Archæopteryx. The structure known as the pygostyle, which supports the tail feathers, is also present in this bird. In short, this creature, the same age as Archæopteryx—which evolutionists regard as the oldest supposed forebear of birds, as being half-reptile and half-bird—bears a very close resemblance to modern-day birds. This fact refutes evolutionist theses to the effect that Archæopteryx is the primitive forerunner of all birds.
The Everlasting Refuge and Sustainer
Allah, the Everlasting Sustainer of all. ( Surat al-Ikhlas, 2)
In the entire universe, all power belongs to Allah, the only One Who can remove a person's troubles and difficulties, and meet his needs. Sometimes people forget our Lord and take other guardians for themselves, who they believe can provide them with power, honor, and help. But this is a delusion, for there is no other deity other than Allah. Unless He wills otherwise, no one can help or harm anyone else. This fact is related in the Qur'an, as follows:
Do those who take the hypocrites as protectors, rather than the believers, hope to find power and strength with them? Power and strength belong entirely to Allah. ( Surat an-Nisa', 139)
Our only refuge from distress is Allah, the Lord of power and honor, for He answers all of His servants' prayers and eases, or fully removes, what is causing them hardship. Allah describes this, as follows:
He Who responds to the oppressed when they call upon Him and removes their distress, and has appointed you as inheritors of the land. Is there another deity besides Allah? How little you pay heed! ( Surat an-Naml, 62)
This verse states that some people fail to recognize or forget Allah's compassion and mercy and become ungrateful. However, as Allah states in “Say: ‘Allah rescues you from it, and from every plight'…” ( Surat al-An‘am, 64)
, only He saves us from every distress. In return, He expects us to notice this answer, ponder over its importance, submit to Him, and become His grateful servant.
The Prophet (saas) advises believers to take refuge only in Allah:
"When you ask, ask from Allah; when you seek help, seek it of Allah.” (Hadith at-Tirmidhi)
MUSLIM SOLIDARITY BEING IMPROVED
What He Said
SUUD 1 TV, April 23-2008
Adnan Oktar: I WANT MUSLIMS TO LOVE AND BE BROTHERS TO ONE ANOTHER,
with no discrimination between sects, or whether someone happens to be a Hanefi, Sunni, Shafii, or whatever. We believe in the same Allah, in the same prophet and face the same direction in prayer. We love the same prophets and the same angels, and our everything is more or less the same, so building walls and even enmity between us on the basis of minor details merely serves the interests of satan. There must be no such thing. We are all, inshaAllah, sincere Muslims, genuine brothers.

Sectarian conflict helps the enemy
Evolutionists maintain that birds evolved from reptiles. However, there are a number of factors which refute this. One of these is the very different surface structures of the two groups.
Birds are covered in feathers, and reptiles with scales. These structures are very different to one another, and there exists not a single fossil specimen to support the claim that feathers evolved from scales.
ANSWERS FROM THE QUR'AN
The purpose of this book is to provide answers from the Qur'an to the questions of those who have recently become acquainted with the Qur'an and believers and who are still, to a degree, under the influence of the morality practiced by their unbelieving societies. It is hoped that those who ask these questions out of a sincere desire to receive answers will be satisfied with these answers and obey Allah's commands, and that their pursuit of the truth will lead them to find the true answer in the Qur'an, which is the source of guidance for humanity.
Fish that Ruined Evolutionists' Dreams: Colecanth
Evolutionists used to depict the Colecanth, a fish known only from fossils dating back 400 million years, as very powerful evidence of a transitional form between fish and amphibians. Since it was assumed that this species had become extinct 70 million years ago, evolutionists engaged in all kinds of speculation regarding the fossils. On 22 December 1938, however, a living Colecanth was caught in the deep waters of the Indian Ocean. More than 200 other living specimens have been caught in the years that followed.
All the speculation regarding these fish had been unfounded. Contrary to what evolutionists claimed, the Colecanth was not a vertebrate with half-fish, half-amphibian characteristics preparing to emerge onto dry land. It was in fact a bottom-dwelling fish that almost never rose above a depth of 180 meters (590 feet). Moreover, there were no anatomical differences between the living Colecanth and the 400-million-year-old fossil specimens. This creature had never "evolved" at all.
