We have brought them a Book elucidating everything with knowledge, as guidance and a mercy for people who have iman. (Surat al-A’raf, 52)
Narrated Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri: Someone asked Allah’s Messenger: “Who is the best man?” He answered, “A believer who strives in the Cause of Allah with his life and his wealth.” The man asked: “Who is the next?” He said, “One who retires into a narrow valley and worship his Lord.” (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
Believers' love for one another
Love is one of the greatest blessings Allah has bestowed on humanity. Allah has created human nature in such a way that a person will take pleasure from loving and being loved. Being with people who live by the moral values of the Qur’an, enjoying love and friendship with them, brings a believer greater pleasure than many other blessings. Therefore, the Paradise that Allah has promised to His servants whom He loves and with whom He is well pleased is a place of extraordinary beauty in which true love, friendship and intimacy will be experienced with enormous joy for ever.
The information Allah provides about the life of Paradise in the Qur’an, always refers to joy, friendship, love, conversation, pleasing words and peace. Everything that might prove an obstacle to love and friendship has been kept far removed from the people of Paradise. In one verse, for example, Allah has revealed that He will strip away any rancour in the hearts of the companions of Paradise (Surat al-A‘raf, 43). All vices that might represent an obstacle to love and friendship, such as discrimiation, jealousy, enmity, rivalry, anger, discord and touchiness, will be excluded from Paradise.
One of the main characteristics of Muslims is that they love all Muslims who abide by Allah’s messengers, prophets and approval, in this world too. This bond of love and friendship between believers is revealed in these terms in the Qur’an:
Your friend is only Allah and His Messenger and those who believe: those who perform prayer and give the alms, and bow. (Surat al-Ma’ida, 55)
The faithful feel a closeness to all devout believers who strive to earn Allah’s approval, and adopt them as their friends and guardians. They take great pleasure from being with them under all conditions. They are bound to all Muslims with great loyalty and devotion. This love is not based on any interest, or lineage or race. Money, rank, culture or material values are of no importance to them in this regard. They approve of the people of whom they expect Allah to approve; devout believers on the path of Allah are some of His most beloved servants. For that reason, believers also have great love and consideration for one another. Many verses of the Qur’an refer to the love, attachment, compassion and consideration that believers have for one another. Some of these verses read:
Hold fast to the rope of Allah all together, and do not separate. Remember Allah’s blessing to you when you were enemies and He joined your hearts together so that you became brothers by His blessing. You were on the very brink of a pit of the Fire and He rescued you from it. In this way Allah makes His Signs clear to you, so that hopefully you will be guided. (Surah al ‘Imran, 103)
Allah loves those who fight in His Way in ranks like well-built walls. (Surat as-Saff, 4)
Believers regard all the faithful as their brothers. They do not hesitate to make any sacrifice for the good of another believer or to ensure his or her comfort. This conception of love possessed by believers can only be acquired through faith and living by the moral values of the Qur’an. Allah reveals in one verse that He will bestow love on those who believe and do devout works:
As for those who believe and do right actions, the All-Merciful will bestow His love on them. (Surah Maryam, 96)
Our Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) has expressed the importance of love and the superior nature of believers who live by true love in one of his hadiths:
"Allah (subhanahu wa ta`ala) said: 'Those who love one another for My glory, will have minbars of light, and the Prophets and martyrs will wish that they had the same." (Reported by Tirmidhi, 4/24, Bab ma ja'a fi al-hubb fi-Allah)
The true source of this love that believers have for one another is their deep love of Allah. Believers whose purpose in the life of this world is to attain the approval, mercy and Paradise of Allah spend their entire lives for Him. As is revealed in the verse “Say: ‘My prayer and my rites, my living and my dying, are for Allah alone, the Lord of all the worlds,’” (Surat al-An‘am, 162) they aim at attaining His approval in their every deed, in all their behaviour. The love of believers, who devote all they have to attaining the good pleasure of Allah, is again for Allah alone. The love of Allah of a believer who knows Allah by all His names, who witnesses His might and greatness at every moment, who feels His mercy, love and compassion throughout his life, is incomparably greater than any other love. Believers’ love for other believers is similarly powerful and deep because it is based on the love of Allah, and they love in order to attain the approval of Allah. Another reason why this love is strong and permanent is because they know that the friendship with the faithful will last for ever in the Hereafter.
In the Qur’an Allah has given the moral values of the Prophet Yahya (peace be upon him) as an example of this sensitivity of believers regarding love:
[We said:] “Yahya, take hold of the Book with vigour.” We gave him judgement while still a child, and affection and purity from Us—he guarded against evil... (Surah Maryam, 12-13)
There are three qualities whosoever has them will taste the sweetness of Iman: loving Allah and His Messenger above all else, loving someone solely for the sake of Allah, and hating to return to disbelief after Allah has rescued him from it, as much as he would hate being thrown into Hellfire.” (Sahih Bukhari).
Believers who have great love of Allah, fear Allah, and make sincere endeavors so that He might approve of them, are auspicious individuals who bring beauty to the world. Due to these superior moral values, they also love all the things that Allah has created, feel affection and compassion for them, and wish to protect them and bring them goodness and beauty. Allah has given the glad tidings that in return for this pleasing love stemming from the faith in believers’ hearts and their fear of Allah, and for their sincere loyalty to Him, He will reward them with Paradise, the most beautiful sphere of love and faithfulness.
The Hand: A Marvel of Engineering
The hand, a marvel of engineering, is an organ specially created for human beings by God, and reveals with its perfect features the flawless nature of our Lord’s creation.
Our hands, which enable us to perform some very ordinary acts such as stirring a cup of tea, turning the pages of a newspaper, or writing, are incredible engineering wonders.
The most important feature of the hand is its ability to operate with high efficiency in very distinct activities, despite having a standard structure. Being furnished with a great number of muscles and nerves, our arms help our hands grip objects strongly or softly according to different circumstances. For instance, the human hand, although when not formed into a fist, can strike a blow strike against an object with a weight of 45 kilograms. However, our hand can also feel, between its thumb and forefinger, a sheet of paper one tenth of a millimeter in thickness.
Obviously, these two acts are of a totally different character. As one requires sensitivity, the other requires great force. We, however, never even think for a second what we have to do when we take a sheet of paper between our fingers or hit with a fist. Nor do we think how to adjust the strength for these two acts. We never say, "Now I will pick up some paper. Let me apply a force of 500 g. Now I will lift this bucketful of water. Let me apply a force of 40 kg." We even do not bother to think about these.
The reason is that the human hand is designed to perform all these acts simultaneously. The hand is created together with all its functions and all its related structures concurrently.
All the fingers in the hand are the appropriate length and position, and proportionate to each other. For instance, the strength of a fist formed with a hand having a normal thumb is greater than that formed with a hand having a shorter thumb, because with its pre-determined appropriate length, the thumb covers other fingers and helps augment their power by supporting them.
There are many small details in the structure of the hand: for instance, it has smaller structures besides the muscles and nerves. The nails at the tip of the fingers are by no means trivial accessories. When we try to pick a needle from the floor, we use our nails as well as our fingers. The rough surface comprising our fingertips and nails helps us in picking up small objects. Last but not least, nails play a big role in the regulation of the minute pressure fingers have to exert on the object they hold.
Another distinctive feature of the hand is that it does not get tired.
Robot Hands Are a Failure
The worlds of medicine and science spend a considerable effort on making an artificial copy of the hand. The robotic hands so far manufactured have the same performance as human hands in terms of power, yet it is hard to say the same thing for sensitivity of touch, perfect maneuverability, and the ability to do diverse jobs.
Many scientists agree that no robot hand can be made having the complete functions of the hand. Engineer Hans J. Schneebeli, who has designed the robotic hand known as "The Karlsruhe Hand", stated that the more he worked on robotic hands, the more he admired the human hand. He added that they still need a lot of time to make possible even a certain number of the jobs accomplished by a human hand.
The hand usually functions in co-ordination with the eye. The signals reaching the eye are transmitted to the brain, and the hand moves according to the command given by the brain. These, of course, are completed in a very short time and without making us spend a special effort to do them. Robotic hands, on the other hand, can only rely either on sight or touch. Different commands are needed for every move they make. In addition, robotic hands cannot accomplish diverse functions. For instance, a robotic hand playing the piano cannot hold a hammer, and a robotic hand holding a hammer cannot hold an egg without breaking it. Some robotic hands that have only lately been produced are able to perform 2-3 actions together, but this is still very primitive when compared to the abilities of the hand.
In addition, when you consider that the two hands co-operate with each other in perfect harmony, the flawlessness of the design of the hand becomes more explicit.
God designed the hand as an organ especially for human beings. With all these aspects, it shows us the perfection and uniqueness in God’s art of creation.
Helping the religion is possible with love and heart
The Most High
It does not befit Allah to address any human being except by inspiration or from behind a veil, or He sends a messenger who then reveals by His permission whatever He wills. He is indeed Most High , All-Wise. ( Surat ash-Shura: 51)
Allah introduces Himself to us: Allah, the Creator of all the worlds and the sole Sovereign of the universe, is the Most High and the Possessor of the heavens, Earth, and everything in between. There is no deity but Him. High is He, Exalted above all that they associate (with Him). He is the Sovereign, the All-Powerful, and the Lord of the Ways of Ascent. Allah is Self-Sufficient, above all need.
All of the beautiful names belong to Allah, for He is the Owner of infinite beauty and infinite sublimity. A person can know Him only to the extent that He introduces Himself, and can appreciate Him through the verses of the Qur'an. In one verse, Allah describes this name in the following terms:
Allah, there is no deity but Him, the Living, the Self-Sustaining. He is not subject to drowsiness or sleep. Everything in the heavens and Earth belongs to Him. Who can intercede with Him except by His permission? He knows what is before them and what is behind them, but they cannot grasp any of His knowledge, except for what He wills. His Footstool encompasses the heavens and Earth, and their preservation does not tire Him. He is the Most High, the Magnificent. ( Surat al-Baqara: 255)
The mention in the gospel of 'a man carrying a jar of water' refers to Hazrat Mahdi (as)
Certain passages in the Gospel refer to a person carrying a jar of water. This person, who will bring abundance, beauty, justice and awareness to humanity, is Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).
In astrology, the concept of “a man carrying a jar of water” refers to the House of Aquarius. This may be a sign that Hazrat Mahdi (as) will also be born under the sign of Aquarius. (Allah knows the truth.)
The Prophet Jesus (pbuh) advised his disciples and all Christians to obey and heed this reliable person from the House of Aquarius, and counseled them to follow him right to the end. The Gospel refers to this person, an Aquarian, as follows:
Where do you want us to prepare for it?" they [the Disciples] asked. He [Jesus] replied, "As you enter the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him
to the house that he enters”. (Luke 22, 9-10)
... So he sent two of his disciples, telling them, "Go into the city, and a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him...
.” (Mark 14, 13)
The Invalidity Of The Claim That There Is Chaos In The Universe And The World
Darwinists made the astonishing claim that there is no order, but chaos, in space, on Earth or in living things, while maintaining his life and existence without any difficulties in an extraordinary harmony and order, in the vastness of space. Some Darwinists even made the amazing claim that the planets had no fixed order within this disorder of which he spoke, and that the universe is in a state of great chaos.
This is a classic, Darwinist claim. The demagogy of the universe being in a state of chaos in order to impose the theory of evolution on large numbers of people is a deception that Darwinists always resort to in order to deny the existence of a Creator. But since the claim in question has been raised, it will be appropriate to set out the details of the glorious equilibrium established in the universe by Allah. The equilibrium in space and on the Earth, whose sensitivity exceeds the bounds of human comprehension, may be briefly summarized as follows:
The Balances on Earth:
- If it were stronger, more ammonia and methane would accumulate in the Earth’s atmosphere, and that would have a highly damaging effect on life.
- If it were weaker, the Earth’s atmosphere would lose much of its water and life would become impossible.
Distance from the Sun;
- If it were any greater the planet would grow very cold, the water cycle on Earth would be impaired and we would enter a new Ice Age.
- If it were any closer, the planet would burn up, the water cycle would again be impaired and life would become impossible.
The Thickness of the Earth’s Crust;
- If it were any thicker, a high level of oxygen would be transferred from the atmosphere to the crust and oxygen balance would be impaired.
- If it were any thinner, there would be so much volcanic activity that life would be impossible.
The Speed at Which the Earth Revolves around Its Own Axis;
- If it were slower, the temperature difference between day and night would be very high.
- If it were faster, atmospheric winds would attain huge speeds, and hurricanes and tornados would make life impossible.
The Attraction between the Earth and Moon;
- If it were any greater, the strong attraction of the Moon would have a serious impact on atmospheric conditions, the speed at which the Earth revolves around its own axis and the tides.
- If it were any less, this would lead to severe climate changes.
The Earth’s Magnetic Field;
- If it were any stronger, there would be very powerful electromagnetic storms.
- If it were any weaker, the Earth would be defenseless against solar winds and harmful particles emitted by the Sun. Life would be impossible in either case.
The Ratio of Solar Light Reflected by the Earth to That Reaching It
- If it were any greater, there would soon be a new Ice Age.
- If it were any less, the Greenhouse Effect would lead to excessive warming, and the Earth would first be flooded under the water from melting ice packs, and would then burn up.
The Level of Oxygen and Nitrogen in the Atmosphere:
- If it were higher, vital functions would accelerate in a damaging manner.
- If it were any less, vital functions would decelerate in a damaging manner.
The Level of Carbon Dioxide and Water in the Atmosphere:
- If it were any greater, the atmosphere would overheat.
- If it were any less, the atmospheric temperature would fall.
The Thickness of the Ozone Layer:
- If it were any greater, the temperature of the earth would fall dramatically.
- If it were any less, the Earth would overheat and would have no defense against harmful ultraviolet rays from the Sun.
If, as Darwinists claim, there were disorder, chaos and randomness in the universe and on Earth, then it would be absolutely impossible for even one of the above balances to exist. Even minor impairment of just one of these balances would be sufficient to destroy this extraordinary planet on whose solid surface Darwinists walk. Almighty Allah reveals in these verses:
Are you stronger in structure or is heaven? He (Allah) built it. He raised its vault high and made it level. He darkened its night and brought forth its morning light. After that He smoothed out the earth and brought forth from it its water and its pastureland and made the mountains firm, for you and for your livestock to enjoy. (Surat An-Nazi‘at, 27-33)
THE IDENTITY IN THE FINGERPRINT
Everyone, including identical twins, has a unique fingerprint. In other words, people's identities are coded at their fingertips. This coding system may also be compared to the barcode system that is used today.
While it is stated in the Qur'an that it is easy for Allah to bring man back to life after death, peoples' fingerprints are particularly emphasized:
Yes, We are able to put together in perfect order the very tips of his fingers. (Surat al-Qiyama: 4)
The emphasis on fingerprints has a very special meaning. This is because shapes and details on everyone's fingerprint are unique to each individual. Every person who is alive or who has ever lived in this world has a set of unique fingerprints. Furthermore, even identical twins having the very same DNA sequence have their own set of fingerprints.105
Fingerprints attain their final shape before birth and remain the same for a lifetime unless a permanent scar appears. That is why fingerprints are accepted as a very important proof of identity, exclusive to their owner. The science of fingerprints has been used as a non-erring identity determination method.
However, what is important is that this feature of fingerprints was only discovered in the late 19th century. Before then, people regarded fingerprints as ordinary curves without any specific importance or meaning. However in the Qur'an, Allah points to the fingertips, which did not attract anyone's attention at that time, and calls our attention to their importance. This importance has only been fully understood in our day.
The validity of the technique to establish identity by means of fingerprints (AFS) has been confirmed by various police organisations over the last 25 years and is a legally approved method. No technology of identity verification in our time gives such effective results as fingerprints. Using fingerprints to establish identity has been used in legal processes for the last 100 years and possesses international acceptance.

The claims made by evolutionists concerning the origin of mammals consist of a great many irrational and illogical scenarios. These, unsupported by any scientific findings, they use as propaganda materials. They may of course produce and use such hypotheses as they like, but it is wrong to portray them as scientific. In the words of the biologist Pierre Paul Grassé, "there is no law against daydreaming, but science must not indulge in it." (Pierre Paul Grassé, Evolution of Living Organisms, New York: Academic Press, 1977, p. 103)
Nobody could play the role which Turkey did
What He Said
Kıbrıs Ada TV– August 01, 2008
Elder brotherhood of Turkey have become very vital in this region any longer. Because America can not deal with it. There is an emptiness. Only Turkey is in a condition to fullfill this emptiness.It is already humanitarian, moral and a faithful duty. Turkey also aspire to this duty anyway. Turkey will do this so as a heritage from the Ottoman Empire. Everybody will see this insha’Allah.
The Gulf Today–November 02, 2008
A Turkish Islamic Union will be formed inshaAllah by the help of the Turkish Union which will be formed by the union of the Turkish states under the leadership of Turkey. THIS WILL COME TRUE UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF TURKEY,
we are already going right down to it step by step… Moreover, the most ideal is the leadership of Turkey. This has already been Turkey’s mission. Turkey, always undertook the leadership of the Turkish Islamic world effectively. EVERYWHERE IT MAKES PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THIS. EVERYWHERE IT SHOWS ITS BROTHERHOOD MISSION DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY. ON ANY DISPUTE, TURKEY BECOMES THE PART OF THE ACTIVITY.
For example, in the formation of the Caucasus Alliance, Turkey becomes the part of the activity. When there is a dispute between the other countries, Turkey undertakes a mediator position. Leadership of Turkey can be clearly seen in other projects such as the natural gas pipeline project, or the oil pipeline project. Now Turkey already makes this effectively without making a formal explanation, and this continues and improves.

Portents And Features Of The Mahdi's Coming
Our Prophet (saas) imparted glad tidings regarding the Mahdi, who will be sent during the End Times. For example, this great individual will liberate Muslims from cruelty and suffering; eliminate corruption; and usher in an era of peace, justice, plenty, happiness, and well being. According to reliable hadiths, he will return Islam, which has been distorted via superstitions and practices, to its true essence; meet with Prophet 'Isa (as); and, by Allah's will, will enable Islam's moral values to prevail on Earth.
These great tidings enhance all believers' enthusiasm and excitement. Many of the prophetic hadiths and scholarly manuscripts that have come down to us have transmitted the joy and enthusiasm of those tidings and have kept the subject alive and of interest among believers. The portents that we are seeing in our own time show us that the Mahdi's coming is close at hand. Indeed, the current climate of chaos, oppression, terror, and war, as well as the strife, famines, and earthquakes, are all portents of this great event.
This small book consists of two parts: "The Portents of the Mahdi's Coming" and "The Mahdi's Features." There can be no doubt that all new information learned regarding this subject will enhance the Muslims' excitement.
