It is a Book sent down to you – so let there be no constriction in your breast because of it – so that you can give warning by it and as a reminder to the muminun. (Surat al-A’raf, 2)
Abdur Rahman bin Abi Bakra's father narrated that the Prophet (saas) said: "If Allah wants to do good to a person, he makes him comprehend the religion and of course knowledge is attained by learning." (Bukhari)
A Muslim acts in compliance with the morality of the Qur'an and not the morals of the majority
One of the best attributes of a Muslim who believes in Allah by heart is not to follow the majority but to act in compliance with what best suits Allah’s consent and the voice of his conscience no matter what the circumstances may be. For such a person, the thoughts and behaviors of other people do not matter. A Muslim only attaches importance to earn Allah’s good pleasure and thus aims at displaying the best attitude and the most suited words in compliance with the Qur’an.
This attribute of moral perfection displayed by sincere Muslims manifests in its perfect form in the lives of prophets. No matter how people lived in their societies, prophets never adopted a lifestyle and morality except from what is revealed to them by Allah and never tended to unbelievers’ perverted beliefs and wicked habits. They had been subjected to the oppression and torture of unbelievers, those associating partners with Allah and hypocrites all through their lives solely because they had faith in Allah and submitted themselves to Him. They faced death threats; they were imprisoned, slandered, tortured and exiled from their homelands. They spent their lives in constant suffering. Even some of them were martyred in the way of Allah.
The prophets responsible for conveying Allah’s revelation hardily faced up to threats and never stepped back because of difficulties they encountered.
Allah exemplified prophets’ and genuine Muslims’ moral perfection to Muslims thus:
‘’Many a Prophet has been killed, when there were many thousands with him! They did not give up in the face of what assailed them in the Way of Allah, nor did they weaken, nor did they yield. Allah loves the steadfast.’’ (Surah Al Imran, 146)
One of the major aims of a Muslim who deeply loves Allah should be, just as how all prophets did throughout their lives, not to fear the condemnations of those who condemn them and live with fear of Allah in the way that best suits Allah’s good pleasure.
In societies in which people do not live by the morality of the Qur’an crowd psychology pervades. People act not in compliance with their own intelligence and conscience but with crowd psychology. This mood dominates all their lives. The pleasures, understanding of aesthetics, love, style of speaking peculiar to them are replaced by socially accepted artificial and insincere moods that are, most of the time, also disliked by themselves.
Because practices incompatible with those of the society immediately attract attention and, in some cases, get reactions, people who are not guided by the Qur’an and our Prophet’s (saas) Sunnah utterly turn a blind eye to their wisdom and conscience and act in accordance with the societies’ expectations. They blindly adopt an attitude, without calculating whether it is accurate or not, or whether it will bring any responsibility in the Hereafter. Consequently, loveless, unfaithful, selfish, interest-ridden people bereft of compassion and mercy appear. These arrogant people are full of hatred, greed, grudge and are prone to gossip and argument. Although these people who live by such morality also suffer from the harms of these wicked moral features themselves, they remain imprisoned in this wicked system throughout their lives merely because the majority of people around them live in this way and, probably because in a contrary situation they deem they will be oppressed, be defeated or remain without protection. In one verse in the Qur’an, Allah relates what consequences following the majority will yield as follows:
‘”If you obeyed most of those on earth, they would misguide you from Allah’s Way. They follow nothing but conjecture. They are only guessing.’’ (Surat Al-An’am 116)
The fact is however, this is what distinguishes a genuine believer. A Muslim never takes the opinion of the majority as a measure to distinguish the right from wrong. He never assesses something to be right because people think so and vice versa. A Muslim evaluates everything in compliance with the Qur’an and our Prophet’s (saas) Sunnah. If Allah relates an attitude, a happening to be erroneous and wicked, even if the whole world displays that attitude, a faithful believer never condescends to assume that reprehensible attitude. If everyone in the world does not assume an attitude Allah praises in the Qur’an, a Muslim assumes it with honor and dignity. A Muslim never displays a crude attitude contrary to the Qur’an. He conserves his noble attitude in every environment and under all circumstances. Even if people approach him with the most wicked morality, he knows that he will always prevail and that Allah will always protect him as long as he treats them with an attitude favored by Allah and the morality of the Qur’an. As Allah relates in the verse, ‘’Do not give up and do not be downhearted. You shall be uppermost if you are believers.’’ (Surah Al Imran, 139), he is aware that he is morally superior and noble because he has faith.
That a Muslim does not follow the majority does not mean that he turns his back to everything he sees in the society and that everything the majority does is corrupt and erroneous. A Muslim evaluates what he sees around him in the light of the Qur’an; he takes the aspects that are in compliance with the Qur’an and considers those that are aesthetic as beautiful. For instance a person may have a morally flawed attitude. For instance he may be prone to anger. Yet he may also be very self-sacrificing. In such a case, only because that person has a furious personality, ignoring his self-sacrificing aspect and considering him as a wicked person as a whole would not be right. A Muslim appreciates the beautiful aspects of this person while trying to correct his morally wicked traits by explaining them to him with beautiful words and wisdom. A Muslim has a rational and balanced spirit. Even if held in the most arduous environment and subjected to all forms of adversity, his eye immediately catches a single beauty and his spirit turns to that beauty, for he knows that it is Allah Who manifests everywhere and in everything and that beauties are blessings from Allah. He is well aware of the fact that Allah creates the morally reprehensible traits in people around with purpose, to make him take lessons and have fear for Him. He also grasps that Allah specially creates the beauties so that he can admire and take as an example. For this reason, while not following the majority, a Muslim should not reject all the attributes he sees in the majority as a whole. He should simply turn his back to those traits incompatible with the Qur’an but adopt the beautiful details that are in compliance with it.
Hidden Power In The Structure Of The Atom
Air, water, mountains, animals, plants, your body, the armchair in which you sit, in short, everything, from the smallest to the largest thing that you see, touch and feel, are made up of atoms. Both of your hands and also this book you're holding now are made up of atoms. Atoms are particles so small that it is impossible to see even one of them with using our most powerful microscope. The diameter of a single atom is one-millionth of a millimeter.
It is not possible for a man to visualize such an immensely tiny scale. Therefore, let us try to approach it using an example. Assume that you hold a key in your hand. Undoubtedly, it is not possible for you to see the atoms of this key. In order to see them, let's assume that we bring the size of this key to the size of the Earth itself. Once the key becomes as large as the earth, then each atom inside the key is the size of a cherry, and so we could finally see them.
What then exists in such a small structure? In spite of its small size, inside an atom exists a perfect, unique and complex system. Every atom consists of a central nucleus and electrons revolving around the nucleus in very distant orbits. The nucleus is located at the center of the atom and contains a certain number of protons and neutrons according to the characteristics of the atom.
The radius of the nucleus is about a ten-thousandth of the radius of the atom. Now, let's search for the nucleus of the cherry-size atoms as we enlarge the key to the dimensions of the globe as we mentioned above. But this search is futile because it is certainly impossible for us, even at this scale, to observe a nucleus, which is still amazingly small. For us to be able to see the nucleus, the cherry that represents the atom must be enlarged once again until it becomes a giant ball measuring 200 meters (656 feet) in diameter. In spite of this incredible dimension, the nucleus of the atom will still be no larger than a speck of dust.
Yet, it is quite amazing that, although the volume of the nucleus is about ten-billionth of that of the atom, its mass constitutes fully 99.5% of the mass of the atom. But how, then, does a thing, on the one hand, constitute almost the whole mass while it does not, on the other, take up almost any space? The reason is that the density of an atom, which constitutes its mass, is concentrated in the nucleus of the atom. What provides this is the force called the strong nuclear force. By means of this force, the nucleus of the atom is kept together without being scattered.
What we have recounted so far are only a few details about the perfect system that exists in a single atom. In fact, an atom contains an extensive structure on which entire volumes of books can be written. However, even the few details we mentioned here are enough for us to see its magnificent creation and the fact that Allah created it.

He Who Makes His Servant's Path Easier in Goodness and Wickedness; He Who Places No Unbearable Burden on Anyone
Allah desires ease for you ; He does not desire difficulty for you. You should complete the number of days and proclaim Allah's greatness for the guidance He has given you, so that hopefully you will be thankful. ( Surat al-Baqara, 2:185)
Allah always directs us toward ease. At the base of Islam, the religion with which He is pleased, always lies this ease. The Qur'an reveals this profound truth, as follows:
Strive for Allah with the effort due to Him. He has selected you and has not placed any constraint upon you in religion—the religion of your forefather Ibrahim... ( Surat al-Hajj, 22:78)
Allah has made the Qur'an easy for those who are willing to take heed, and its commands make human life easy. For instance, He does not hold the blind, the lame, or the sick responsible, and shows ways that lessen His servants' burden during times of hardship and travel. He also states that He will forgive people, whatever their sins may be, provided that they repent sincerely. One verse reads:
We have made the Qur'an easy to remember. But is there any rememberer there? ( Surat al-Qamar, 54:17)
Meanwhile, Allah calls attention to the fact that believers can easily attain all forms of success:
We will ease you to the Easy Way . ( Surat al-A‘la, 87:8)
Every ease that we feel or see is from Allah, for they all come from His glory. He is the Most Compassionate of the compassionate, and He does not desire difficulty for His servants:
Allah desires to make things lighter for you. Man was created weak. ( Surat an-Nisa', 4:28)
Allah knows what we can and cannot do, and thus does not desire any difficulty for us. This is also related in “Allah desires ease for you; He does not desire difficulty for you” ( Surat al-Baqara, 2:185)
. Even under the severest conditions, He makes our tasks easy and shows us a way out. Allah reminds His servants of this blessings in the following verses:
Did We not expand your breast for you and remove your load from you, which weighed down your back? Did We not raise your renown high? For truly with hardship comes ease; truly with hardship comes ease. ( Surat al-Inshirah, 94:1-6)
Allah makes the ways of attaining His good pleasure and mercy easy for believers. On the other hand, He informs us that He will pave the way to difficulty for unbelievers:
But as for him who is stingy, self-satisfied, and denies the Good, We will pave his way to difficulty. ( Surat al-Layl, 92:8-10)
Hazrat Mahdi (as) will have black hair
According to accounts narrated by Abu Abdullah Nuaim Ibn Hammad from Abu Jaffar ibn Muhammad ibn Ali Al-Baqir, Hazrat Ali (as) was asked of the characteristics of Hazrat Mahdi (as) and he answered as follows:
The light of his [Hazrat Mahdi’s (as)] face rises to his head and the blackness of his hair.
(Ibrahim Suleymanoglu, Mehdilik ve Imamiye [Mahdism and Imamate], p. 153; Iqdud Durar)
... His [Hazrat Mahdi’s (as)] hair hangs over his shoulders. The light of his face gives him grandeur. He has black hair.
He has a black beard. (Mari’ bin Yusuf Karami Hanbali, Fawaid Fawaid al-Fikr fil Mahdi al-Montazar)
The light of his [Hazrat Mahdi’s (as)] face shines like day over the blackness of his hair, beard and head
, and gives him grandeur. (Al-Uqayli, An-Najmu's-saqib fi Bayan Anna'l Mahdi min Awladi Ali b. Abu Talib Ale't-Tamam wa al-Qamal)
Protein Cannot Form Unless The Cell Exists As An Integral Whole
Darwinists can write as many deceptive books jam packed with formulae, produce as many false fossils as they like, make as many demagogic assaults on the scientific evidence for Creation as they choose or stick posters up full of fantastical illustrations and present these as exhibitions of evolution all over the place, but none of this will ever change the fact of their fundamental defeat. Because the worst nightmare for Darwinists is the very beginning of life. Darwinists HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO PRODUCE A SINGLE EXPLANATION
of how just one protein came into being. This is an expression of the despairing situation into which, Dawkins, Futuyma, Tim White and all other Darwinists now find themselves. None of this demagoguery can resolve this great and stupendous rout in the face of a single protein. A SINGLE PROTEIN HAS TOTALLY DEMOLISHED DARWINISM.
One important feature of Darwinist demagoguery is that Darwinists always tended to reduce the question of the origin of life to the very simple, despite all the complexity of life, by portraying everything within it as very simple. That is the reason for such myths as “the cell emerged from muddy water” and “DNA spontaneously began replicating itself.” Darwinists imagined it would be easier to deceive people in this way. But they have now seen that the time for such deception has passed. Not only do people now know that a single protein is far too complex ever to come into being spontaneously, they are also aware that neither a protein, DNA, RNA or any other minute component of the cell WILL SERVE ANY PURPOSE IN THE ABSENCE OF THE CELL AS A WHOLE.
This fact is of great important in terms of the defeat of Darwinism:
- DNA is essential for a single protein to form
- DNA cannot form without protein
- Protein cannot form without DNA
- Protein cannot form in the absence of protein
- Sixty separate proteins are needed for a single protein to form
- Protein cannot form in the absence of any one of these
- Protein cannot form with no ribosome
- Protein cannot form with no RNA
- Protein cannot form without ATP
- Protein cannot form without the mitochondria to manufacture ATP
- Protein cannot form without the cell nucleus
- Protein cannot form without the cytoplasm
- Protein cannot form in the absence of a single organelle in the cell
- And proteins are necessary for all the organelles in the cell to exist and function
- There can be no protein without these organelles.
This is an interconnected system that has to function simultaneously. You cannot have one part without the other. Even if one component exists, it will still not function in the absence of the others.
THE WHOLE CELL IS NECESSARY FOR A PROTEIN TO FORM. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR A SINGLE PROETIN TO FORM IN THE ABSENCE OF THE WHOLE CELL
, with its perfect complex structure we see today, but of which we understand only a very small part.
Even if this protein did form spontaneously (which is in any case impossible), it will still serve no purpose. It will just wander around alone and die.
Therefore, Dawkins’ claim of “a spontaneously replicating molecule” is utterly ludicrous and solely intended to deceive. NO MOLECULE IN THE HUMAN CELL POSSESSES THE ABILITY TO REPLICATE ITSELF SPONTANEOUSLY WITHOUT THE HELP OF ANY OTHER MOLECULE
The Cambridge University Professor of Philosophy Stephen C. Meyer describes this in his book The Signature in the Cell:
Following the elucidation of the structure and function of DNA during the 1950s and early 1960s, a radically new conception of life began to emerge. Not only did molecular biologists discover that DNA carried information; they soon began to suspect that living organisms must contain systems for processing genetic information. Just as the digital information stored on a disc is useless without a device for reading the disc, so too is the information on DNA useless without the cell’s information-processing system. As Richard Lewontin notes, “No living molecule (i.e., biomolecule) is self-producing. Only whole cells may contain all the necessary machinery for self-reproduction... Not only is DNA incapable of making copies of itself, aided or unaided, but it is incapable of ‘making’ anything else... The proteins of the cell are made from other proteins, and without that protein-forming machinery nothing can be made.”1
These statements once again reveal the inconsistency of these accounts by Dawkins, who has recently converted to the religion of outer space. The Earth is the most ideal environment in all of space for the survival of the living cell. But not even these ideal conditions by themselves make it possible for the cell to be able to form spontaneously. Dawkins has looked for a new explanation in the face of this and now maintains that a molecule capable of replicating spontaneously formed in space and subsequently made its way to Earth. The first insoluble problem here is that no such living molecule can form spontaneously. The second is, as set out above, that no living molecule can replicate spontaneously, not even on Earth. Aware of these insoluble problems, Dawkins eventually had to admit that such a molecule was created by a sublime intelligence.2

THE RETINA: THE LAYER OF THE EYE
The retina is a layer of the eye that contains cells that allow us to see. At the time of the revelation of the Qur’an, this layer that made sight possible was unknown and the term retina was not in use. Yet the letters that comprise the word “retina” appear side by side in only one place in the Qur’an, in verse 8 of Surah Fatir. This verse also refers to “seeing,” for which reason there is a strong possibility that it refers to the retina. (Allah knows the truth.)
And what of him the evil of whose actions seem fine to him so that he sees them as good? Allah misguides whoever He wills and guides whoever He wills. So do not let yourself waste away out of regret for them. Allah knows what they do… (Surah Fatir, 8)
* The Arabic alphabet consists of consonants alone. The letter alif is used to influence the way words are read.
This verse, which contains the word “retina” that makes sight possible, refers to the Arabic verb “raa,” meaning “to see.” Verse 19 contains the sentence "The blind and seeing are not the same." Damage to the retina can lead to permanent blindness. Verse 20 refers to "nor are darkness and light." That term is highly significant in terms of the formation of the retina’s light-sensitive calls. All these terms regarding sight are very rare in the Qur’an. The fact that the word “retina” appears only in these verses out of thousands, is another of Allah’s miracles in the Qur’an.
ELM LEAF WITH SECTION OF BRANCH
54-37 million years
Cache Creek Formation, British Columbia, Canada
In the fossil record, there exists not a single specimen revealing that one species of plant has come into being by evolving from another species by a series of minor changes. Countless fossil specimens unearthed reveal that every plant has been created with features of its own, and that it has remained unchanged as long as the species existed. One of the findings that prove this fact is this 54- to 37-million-year-old elm leaf fossil.
Rasmussen: ''Send Turkish Educators to Afghanistan''
What He Said
Destan TV, August 5- 2008
America itself saw that it can’t do this. I mean this isn’t the thing that they can do. Europe can never do that. They draw away. Iraq can’t do it by itself anyway. It may fall to pieces and may turn to civil wars, may turn to turmoil. The case between Palestine and Israel wouldn’t pass off. InshaAllah the only solution is Turkey to accept being the big brother in the area. It will say I offer you the being the elder brother... Tranquility will come, justice will come, peace will come, economic revival will come. It will rear and they know very well that it will be the superpower. Whereever Turkish soldier goes, they applause. He is welcomed with affection. Turkish soldier is very brave, decent and very just. He is loved everywhere in the world. He is loved in Afghanistan, loved in Somali if he goes. Everywhere... He is loved in Bosnia if he goes. Why? Because the Turkish soldier is very conscientious, decent, respectable, just and reasonable. And very very conscientious. He holds mother and father compassion. And Turkish soldier acts very reasonably. I mean, he doesn’t get hooked on. He is moderate. Everybody unanimously adopts Turkey to be the elder brother in the area is the best governance.
Vatan, August 29- 2009
Secretary General of NATO Anders Fogh Rasmussen had a meeting with Minister of Foreign Affairs of Turkey Ahmet Davutoğlu in Ankara. In the meeting, Ramussen requested much more military educator by specifying that a center will be established in this country to strengthen the security in Afghanistan.
After the meeting, in the associated press conference, Davutoğlu stated that the subject of contribution to Afghanistan often came up in the meeting and added: “Now 795 Turkish military personnel is serving duty in Afghanistan.”
One of the major reasons why people feel a profound sense of attachment for life and cast religion aside is the assumption that life is eternal. Forgetting that death is likely to put an end to this life at any moment, man simply believes that he can enjoy a perfect and happy life. Yet, he evidently deceives himself. The world is a temporary place specially created by Allah to test man. That is why it is inherently flawed and far from satisfying man’s endless needs and desires. Every attraction existing in the world eventually wears out, becomes corrupt, decays and finally disappears. This is the never-changing reality of life. This book explains this essential nature of life and leads man to ponder the real place to which he belongs, namely the Hereafter.
Confessions Of The Evolutionists
Ever since it was first put forward, certain materialist circles have attempted to portray the theory of evolution as scientific fact. In fact, however, the theory, which claims that life emerged as the result of chance processes, has been utterly disproved by various branches of science. Over the 150 or so years separating Charles Darwin, the founder of the theory, and the present day, such scientific fields as paleontology, biochemistry, genetics and anatomy have demolished the theory’s assumptions. The more the details of nature have been revealed, the more extraordinary characteristics have been discovered that can never be explained in terms of chance.
For all these reasons, in the words of the famous molecular biologist Professor Michael Behe, evolution is “A theory in crisis.”
From time to time, this crisis leads scientists who support the theory to make a number of confessions. They reject the theory not despite their materialist preconceptions, but because they realize that it flies in the face of scientific findings.
In this book you will find statements made by these evolutionist scientists regarding the theory they believe in. Hundreds of evolutionists, from Charles Darwin to eminent present-day supporters of his theory, such as Richard Dawkins, Stephen Jay Gould and Richard Leakey, have admitted that it is groundless, incorrect, and even ridiculous.
If you want to see why not even Darwinism’s most determined proponents believe in it, you must read this book.
