Allah Demeans The Unbelievers In This Life

Those who mock Allah's religion and revelation, as well as His prophets and those who follow them, have always existed. Incapable of praising Allah's power and greatness, they live heedless lives and overlook the fact that they will be punished for their deeds. They continue to hold this attitude, even though the Qur'an tells them that the punishment they regard as being far in the future is, in reality, very close at hand:

They deny the truth each time it comes to them, but news of what they were mocking will certainly reach them. (Surat al-An'am, 5)

Messengers before you were also mocked, but those who jeered were engulfed by what they mocked. (Surat al-Anbiya', 41)… every time some nobles of his people passed him by, they ridiculed him. He [Nuh] said: "Though you ridicule us now, we will certainly ridicule you as you do us. You will soon know who will receive a punishment that disgraces him and find unleashed against himself an everlasting punishment." (Surah Hud, 38-39)

There is no doubt that these people will be punished for their sins in the Hereafter. However, this punishment also reaches them while they are still in this world. They mock the believers and the prophets sent by Allah, and Allah mocks them. Allah makes this absolutely clear:

But Allah is mocking them and drawing them on as they wander blindly in their excessive insolence. (Surat al-Baqara, 15)

By misusing the time allotted to them, the unbelievers fall into a terrible trap. Throughout their lives they struggle against the Qur'an's morality, Allah's prophets, and the believers, thinking that they will suffer no negative consequences. In fact, no matter how arrogant they may be in this life, they will die and be buried whenever Allah wills this to happen. Allah withdraws the property of which they are so proud and leaves their bodies to rot beneath the ground. All of this is inescapable - they will die just like everybody else. Their mortality and inability to escape death are the greatest proofs of their desperate position.

Moreover, Allah sends a lot of trouble, concern, and difficulty to these people. While they believe themselves superior, all that happens to them reveals just how helpless they really are. Allah gives us several examples in the Qur'an of the state into which the unbelievers will fall.

Chitin: A Perfect Coating Substance
Insects are among the most widespread and resilient creatures on Earth. The reason for this is that they have been created so as to be very resistant to many unfavorable conditions. One thing that makes them so strong is the chitin substance which covers their bodies.

Chitin is a very light, thin substance. For this reason, insects have no difficulty in carrying it. Although this substance covers an insect's body on the outside, it is so strong that it could also serve the function of a skeleton and, at the same time, is outstandingly flexible. It can move as the muscles with ends connected to the insect's body from inside contract and relax. This not only improves the rapid movement of the insects but also buffers the impact of external blows. The chitin layer is waterproof because of a special exterior coating. It also prevents body liquids from leaking out. It is not affected by the most difficult conditions, high temperature or even radiation. Another property of this layer is that it has a color, examples of which can be seen in the pictures, that is the most suitable for the insect's environment. In this way, the insect can live and avoid being noticed by its enemies. Sometimes, the colors of this layer are so lively that they even deter predators in the surrounding area.

This chitin, which constitutes the outer shell of most insects, is a perfect material in terms of its strength, elasticity and insulation properties. A substance possessing such remarkable characteristics cannot but make one wonder, if airplanes and spaceships were made from a substance possessing the characteristics of chitin, what would they be like? In fact, the structure of this substance is the stuff of aeronautical engineers' dreams. Yet, mankind has never been able to match such an advanced design, in spite of our technological developments.

Chitin, an equivalent of which is being sought after using twentyfirst century technology, has existed ever since insects came into being. This material, as mentioned above, is the most ideal coating substance an insect can ever possess. It is obviously impossible for this substance possessing the ability to protect the creature against any kind of danger to have come into existence by chance. No insect could have produced such a protective material by using its own will. Allah created this substance, which has a unique design, along with the extraordinary attributes of the insects that it covers. In the Qur'an, Allah draws our attention to His creations in this way:

Among His Signs is the creation of the heavens and earth and all the creatures He has spread about in them. And He has the power to gather them together whenever He wills. (Surat ash-Shura, 29)


Celal Sengor has claimed that supposed humanoid apes “stood up when being on four legs became difficult.”  That claim is definitely invalid:

-          Standing on two feet rather than four IS NOT AN ADVANTAGE. Quadripedalism is faster, easier and more efficient. Monkeys very rarely walk on two legs, generally for short distances of around a meter.  Because it is no advantage for them. Human beings can neither move along by swinging from one tree branch to another like a monkey nor run at speeds of 125 km an hour like the cheetah. On the contrary, because they walk on two legs they move very slowly and are thus one of the most defenseless life forms in nature.

-          IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR bipedalism TO EMERGE GRADUALLY. This model that constitutes the basis of evolution necessitates a “mixed” gait at one stage between bipedalism and quadripedalism. A living thing can either walk completely upright or else completely on four legs. No form of gait between the two is possible because of the excessive energy consumption that would be involved.

-          It has been established from the fossils of Australopithecus and Homo habilis, which have been installed on the illusory human family tree, that these had ape-like characteristics and walked stooped over like present-day monkeys. The latest study of the Australopithecus pelvic bone, conducted in 2000, revealed that these life forms did not have a “transitional” posture, and that THEY WALKED JUST LIKED MODERN-DAY APES.  Homo erectus and Neanderthal fossils exhibit the characteristics of fully upright human beings. THERE ARE NO TRANSITIONAL FORM FOSSILS with a posture somewhere between the two.

-          In addition, research into the organ known as the cochlea (balance organ) in the Australopithecine’s inner ear has once again proved that Australopithecus was quadripedal.

-          There are huge anatomical differences between human beings and apes in organs such as the foot, hand, spine and pelvic bone that assist walking:

a) Monkeys’ toes are longer, and the arch in the human foot required by their gait is missing from monkeys’ feet.

b) The monkey hand lacks one very important feature of the human hand, a long and mobile thumb. Monkey hands have a "knuckle walking gait"
anatomy. That anatomy is described as the way that monkeys walk by leaning on the knuckles of the hands, in other words on four feet.

c) The human skull is balanced on the top of the backbone. The monkey skull, on the other hand, is at an angle to the spine, as necessitated by its posture.

d) Human beings have short, broad pelvises that allow them to walk upright. Monkeys’ pelvises are long and narrow.

Such great anatomical differences make it impossible for any life form to survive in the alleged transition from quadripedalism to bipedalism.

-          Fossilized footprints dating back 1.5 million years found in Kenya finally eliminated all the speculation. These fossil features that emerged at a period when, according to Darwinists, imaginary, peculiar-looking hominids should have been in existence, showed that the individual that left them was around 1.80 m in height, with toes that ran parallel to one another, as in today’s man. The presence of an arch, UNIQUE TO MODERN-DAY MAN, in these remains, and also of short toes, DEFINITIVELY DOCUMENT AN ERECT POSTURE. 

-          Craig Stanford, Professor of Anthropology and Biological Sciences at the University of Southern California, says: "The time-honored idea that a weakling hominid left the safety of the forest for the dangerous savanna and had to live by its wits and stood upright is a nice story, but it's probably fiction.”  Despite being an evolutionist, Stanford maintains that the idea is in all probability fictitious. And a totally fictitious account is an illogical one.

-          Apart from all that, the idea that a living thing suddenly began walking upright just in order to pick fruit from trees is a highly illogical and ludicrous one. Many living things, such as dogs and cats, often stand up on two legs to reach something high up. They even walk and travel some distances on two legs. But this characteristic in their bodies has never been selected by chance as advantageous in a random process, no giant and impossible anatomical changes needed to walk upright have taken place, and the cat has therefore never turned into another, bipedal species.  The myth that monkeys became bipedal by standing up on two legs in order to find food or examine their surroundings is just as illogical.

-          In addition, researchers have concluded from their examinations of supposed ancient hominid regions that these were not in fact savannah at all, but more or less densely forested areas. Therefore, the idea that the imaginary life forms in question left the forests for the plains and began walking on two feet there also collapses in those terms.

Turkey Will Be the Greatest Super-State within the Next 10 to 20 Years - 29.04.2009
United Kingdom/Telegraph.co.uk

Jonathan Wynne-Jones, religious affairs editor of the Daily Telegraph, one of Britain’s leading dailies, reported Adnan Oktar’s views on the Turkish-Islamic Union on his blog site. The report, dated 29 April, 2009, appeared under the heading "Turkey predicted to become next super-power" and contained the following statements:

Forget China and India as the world's emerging super-powers.

According to one of Turkey's most prominent intellectuals and writers, the Muslim-majority country is poised to become the next great global force.

Adnan Oktar, or Harun Yahya as he is known by his pen name, predicts that this will happen in the next 10 to 20 years.

HE SAYS THAT IT WILL BE THE LEADER OF A TURKISH-ISLAMIC UNION that will include such regions as Mosul, Kirkuk, Turkistan, Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan as well as all other Islamic countries.

Rather boldly, he says: "There will never be any fragmentation, but rather unification and unison.”


Oktar, who claims that his most recent book, Atlas of Creation, has influenced Tony Blair, argues that the signs have already started and believes that such a development will bring peace to the Middle-East.

Oh yes, and end poverty, hunger... : "Turkey possesses a perspective and power, a mission inherited from the Ottoman Empire, that will put an end to such negativities in the region as anarchy, disorder, hunger, poverty, fear and oppression. A STATE THAT RAN A WORLD EMPIRE WILL AGAIN SHAPE THE WORLD IN THE YEARS TO COME." 

Keen to strengthen relations with the Islamic world, Vladimir Putin is taking a number of important steps to that end in his country's name / International Herald Tribune / 29.12.2008

In January, 2003, Vladimir Putin was the first non-Islamic leader to address the Organization of the Islamic Conference, which brings 57 Muslim countries together. This was a masterly political and diplomatic move, because he was there despite the continuing war in Chechnya. Putin said that 15% of the Russian Federation population was Muslim and that eight out of its 21 autonomous republics were entirely Muslim.

Putin and other Russian leaders, including Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, have from that time on been saying that Russia “is, to some extent, a part of the Muslim world.” In an interview on Al Jazeera on 16 October, 2003, Putin said that in contrast to Muslims living in Western Europe, Muslims in Russia were indigenous and that Islam entered Russian territory long before Christianity. For that reason, it now claims a privileged position in political relations with the Arab and Muslim world, and as a largely European state believes it has a historic mission to act as a mediator between the Western and Muslim worlds.

Now, Russia is not just looking for strong relations with Iran and Syria, but also with Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Turkey, longstanding allies of the USA.

Russia’s desire to draw closer to the Islamic world, and Turkey in particular, which is taking significant steps toward the leadership of the Turkish-Islamic Union is especially noteworthy.

Mr. Adnan Oktar has recently been making detailed statements how the urgent foundation of the Turkish-Islamic Union, which will enable all countries to enjoy physical and spiritual well-being and live in peace and security, will considerably benefit not solely the Turkic states but also other countries. In the immediate wake of these statements by Mr. Oktar the leaders of several countries have issued statements setting out their opinions and ideas on such important subjects as acting in unison and collaborating in economic and political terms, as well as praising Islam.

One of the major developments to follow on from this is that Russia has adopted a more positive approach to the Turkish-Islamic world, and to Turkey in particular.



Age: 50 million years

Period: Eocene

Location: Cache Creek Formation, Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada

The fossil pictured here shows that cedar trees, a kind of coniferous evergreen, have not changed over the last 50 million years—and tell us that evolutionists' claims are untrue. Charles Darwin claimed that there was an evolutionary process that caused all life forms to develop gradually from a single common ancestor without exception, however, the fossil record tells us the exact opposite. The countless remains of extinct or surviving life forms have no familial links between them required by Darwin's theory. Every known fossil has its own unique characteristics.

Natural history is divided into different groups, which, far from being very similar and having only minor differences, are very different and separated from one another by huge structural variations.


He Who Perfects

Today the unbelievers have despaired of overcoming your religion. So do not be afraid of them, but be afraid of Me. Today I have perfected your religion for you and completed My blessing upon you, and I am pleased with Islam as a religion for you. But if anyone is forced by hunger, not intending any wrongdoing, Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. ( Surat al-Ma'ida, 3)

Allah created humanity and, as “Does He Who created not then know? He is the All-Pervading, the All-Aware” ( Surat al-Mulk, 14) emphasizes, He knows best what we need. Allah presented the religion in the form that best conforms to our nature so that all of us could know and serve Him, and thereby attain eternal happiness and salvation. Our Lord, the All-Wise, is pleased with Islam. No doubt, only Allah perfects the religion and uses it, in turn, to perfect His servants.


What He Said

Vatan TV, December 20-2007

Adnan Oktar: My opinion is that the world will generally head in a good direction. In particular, there will be a unification and amalgamation in the Turkish-Islamic world. TURKEY WILL BE THE LEADER OF BOTH THE ISLAMIC AND TURKIC WORLDS. I expect this TO HAPPEN IN 10-20 YEARS. Globally and in Europe, I think that the EUROPEAN UNION will fall apart and SUFFER A SOCIAL COLLAPSE. I think that this Turkish-Islamic Union will come as a relief also to America, and IN TERMS OF THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE GLOBAL EQUILIBRIUM I THINK THAT TWO SUPER POWERS, AMERICA AND THE TURKISH-ISLAMIC UNION, WILL MANAGE THE WORLD.

“Turkey Will Be an Islamic Nationalist in 2025”





In the past, scientists have been caught up in various errors either because of the unsophisticated research equipment of their time or because of their own prejudices. Among such scientific errors, the greatest—and most enduring—historic example is one theory put forward concerning the origins of life. This theory's illogical claims have exerted a much greater influence than any of the other examples. This error, called Darwinism, unites a materialist worldview with a belief in evolution.

The mask of Darwinism, which gained wide acceptance due to the inadequate level of scientific knowledge at the time, has finally been lifted in the 21st century, and it has emerged as an outdated and invalid theory. After seeing this clear truth, it is right to cease resisting it and to embrace it. Up to now, some may have believed in the lie of evolution because it was instilled in their minds by others. But if they are sincere, instead of running after a deception and being humiliated in this world and the next, they will seek to find the truth and live according to it. Those attached to Darwinism must give up believing blindly in this theory, study the conclusions of science, and evaluate them without prejudice.

If sincere in their search, even Darwinism's most avid supporters will see that this theory is a great deception, as proven by scientific facts. Sincerity and honesty, it must not be forgotten, will be rewarded both in this life and the next.

Chance Combinations of Inanimate Molecules Cannot Account for Life

Even if we assume that protein molecules did come into existence by chance, still it is impossible for life to emerge spontaneously. Thousands of further stages are needed in order to progress from a protein to a cell. Above all, any protein that happens to form by chance will have to wait patiently for other proteins to form alongside, while not itself suffering any impairment due to ultraviolet rays or mechanical effects in its immediate environment. Then these other proteins must form in sufficient numbers and at the same point and combine in a meaningful manner in such a way as to constitute the organelles of the cell. No foreign substance, harmful molecule or useless protein must enter the sequence. Then, these organelles have to combine in an exceptionally planned and organized manner, attract the requisite enzymes and be covered with a membrane. And then finally, the interior of that membrane must be filled with a special fluid that provides an ideal environment for these organelles. Yet by itself, every one of these stages is impossible.
