Give the good news to those who have iman and do right actions that they will have Gardens with rivers flowing under them. When they are given fruit there as provision, they will say, ‘This is what we were given before.’ But they were only given a simulation of it. They will have there spouses of perfect purity and will remain there timelessly, for ever.
(Surat al-Baqara, 25)
Observing the deed which most deserves Allah's good pleasure
A person who wants to display the most sincere attitude possible in every incident he encounters must be in a pursuit of earning the most of Allah’s good pleasure. This commandment of Allah is reminded to people by the verse, “So compete with each other in doing good. Every one of you will return to Allah...”
(Surat al-Maida, 48). In another verse our Lord relates:
Then We made Our chosen servants inherit the Book. But some of them wrong themselves; some are ambivalent; and some outdo each other in good by Allah’s permission. That is the great favour. (Surah Fatir, 32)
As is also related in the verse there are some people who are ambivalent although they have faith in Allah as well as those who outdo each other in good. A person of sincere faith outdoes in good. At every moment of his life he makes serious effort to conduct himself in the way that most deserves Allah’s good pleasure. He does everything he can in order to be among those servants who are sincere.
The difference between those who are ambivalent in living by the morality of religion and those who outdo each other in doing good can be described thus; a person encounters many incidents throughout his life. He always faces many choices about how to direct the course of his life or what kind of an attitude and morality to assume in the face of incidents. One always makes these choices through his conscience. Among these choices there are always those alternatives that are not compatible with Allah’s good pleasure. The attention of a person of faith is very attentive to those options which are not compatible with Allah’s good pleasure. Therefore he unconditionally rejects those alternatives and selects the one which is compatible with Allah’s good pleasure. However the options do not end at this point. There are still some others—which are all compatible with the morality of the Qur’an—ahead of him. However this situation must not deceive a person. At this point a person should employ his conscience once again and be cautious to make another choice in pursuit of Allah’s good pleasure. If a person has his goal of being among those who outdo each other in good, then he readily knows the option that will please Allah most. Consequently among all those alternatives ahead of him, he selects the attitude with which he hopes he will earn the most of Allah’s approval, and thus receive the most rewards and cover the longest distance in drawing close to Allah. There is something peculiar to this option; the desires of one’s lower-self does not mess with this option and it is purely intended to earn Allah’s good pleasure. This meticulousness in employing one’s conscience earns one pure sincerity. In the Qur’an Allah mentions about those sincere servants who outdo in good as follows:
They are not all the same. There is a community among the People of the Book who are upright. They recite Allah’s Signs throughout the night, and they prostrate. They have iman in Allah and the Last Day, and enjoin the right and forbid the wrong, and compete in doing good. They are among the sincere. (Surah Al Imran, 113-114)
Perfect details which ensure that polar bears are able to live on ice
Polar bears live in very hard conditions on a region where snow storms can reach 120-140 kmh speeds and are covered with snow and ice 12 months of the year. Allah, the Compassionate, created them in such a manner that they can endure these hard conditions. In one of the verses of the Qur’an Allah reveals:
"He is Allah – the Creator, the Maker, the Giver of Form. To Him belong the Most Beautiful Names. Everything in the heavens and earth glorifies Him. He is the Almighty, the All-Wise." (Surat al-Hashr, 24)
Winter Sleep: A detail which decreases energy usage
One of the means that polar bears use to decrease their energy spending is through winter sleep. Especially the expectant mother, she is able to decrease the speed of her metabolism in order not to spend any energy and to be able to allow her babies to eat better. She transforms the fat in her metabolism to protein for 7 months and this allows the babies to eat better. During this 7 month period, she never eats herself. She can decrease her heart rate to 8 bpm from 70 bpm thus slowing her metabolism.
The details in their Eyesight and Smell
In the eyes of the polar bears is a membranous eyelid filter. By means of this filter, they possess a kind of sunglasses from birth and this structure in their eyes protects them from snow blindness. Polar bear must cover long distances for hunting on a vast ice desert. Because the smelling sense of polar bears are so sharp, they can sense the smell of a seal easily under 1.5 meters of snow layer or 30 km away.
All these characteristics of polar bears remind human beings continuously of the greatness of Allah and the power which predestinates situations and behaviors of all beings. This truth is stated in the Qur’an as thus:
And He has made everything in the heavens and everything on the earth subservient to you. It is all from Him. There are certainly signs in that for people who reflect. (Surat al-Jathiyya, 13
'Haman' and ancient Egyptian monuments
Hazrat Mahdi (as) will appear at a time of increased depravity and oppression
Salama ibn Zufar relates: “When one said ‘Hazrat Mahdi (as) has appeared’ one day when he was near Hudhayfa, Hudhayfa said:“If Hazrat Mahdi (as) has appeared, you are people close to the time of the Messenger of Allah (saas) and his companions are still living among you. In that case, you will be very happy and contended people. But no, this is not true, HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WILL APPEAR WHEN PEOPLE ARE WEARIED OF EVIL, SAVAGERY AND OPPRESSION AND WHEN NO PERSON LIVING IN SECLUSION IS AS GREAT OR LOVED AS HIM.”

The invalidity of the claim that ''transitional forms do not mean deformed living things''
After the fact that 99% of mutations are harmful, one of the most difficult and problematic subjects for Darwinists is the total absence of the fictitious fossils known as transitional forms.
Darwinists have sought to explain the absence of transitional forms in other ways, in order to neutralize this fact that is so embarrassing for them, and say instead that “transitional fossils are different to what you imagine.”
First and foremost, this needs to be made crystal clear: the concept of the “transitional form” is one produced by Darwinists themselves. It was Darwinists who came up with the idea that countless transitional forms must have resulted from unsuccessful mutations between two life forms, and that the majority of these fictitious life forms would have been eliminated while only a very few survived. According to this tale, there must have been a time when a fish would supposedly grow feet or when reptiles’ arms would be wings. But this mythical period DOES NOT EXIST in the fossil record.
There is therefore no question of “a concept that we think of as transitional forms.” All descriptions of the entities referred to as transitional forms come from Darwinists. For years, paleontologists have sought but failed to find the transitional form described by Darwin himself. According to that description, transitional forms are DEFORMED AND MONSTROUS living things. It is impossible, according to that description, for them to be anything else.
Were the theory of evolution true, there is no doubt that traces of these fictitious intermediate periods should be found in the fossil record. Fish spending millions of years as its fins supposedly turned into legs, as evolutionists maintain, should exist in this alleged “intermediate state” in the fossil record.
And that is not all. Bearing that 99% of mutations are harmful, there should also be many more examples of all the failed stages pertinent to a life form. There should be millions or even billions of odd-looking life forms that emerged as a result of failed mutations everywhere on Earth.
Bearing in mind that mutations are blind and random processes and are inevitably harmful, then, no matter how unwilling Darwinists may be to admit the fact, all these supposedly successful or supposedly unsuccessful transitional forms would all have been deformed and twisted, with legs coming out of ears, half-fins and half-legs, with three ears instead of two...
Yet not one such deformed living things, nor any transitional form of the kind imagined by evolutionists, has ever been found among the more than 300 million fossils that have so far been unearthed. Indeed, what troubles Darwinists most is that all fossils are completely regularly, symmetrical and fully formed; in other words, that FOSSILS REFUTE EVOLUTION.
As readers will recall, Darwin’s greatest worry was that transitional forms would not be “IN A STATE OF CONFUSION” and that everything in nature HAS A PERFECT REGULARITY AND SYMMETRY:
HY, if species have descended from other species by insensibly fine gradations, DO WE NOT EVERYWHERE SEE INNUMERABLE TRANSITIONAL FORMS? WHY IS NOT ALL NATURE IN CONFUSION INSTEAD OF THE SPECIES BEING, AS WE SEE THEM, WELL DEFINED?
MUTATIONS DO NOT PRODUCE SYMMETRY.. THEY KNOW NOTHING OF HARMONY, ORDER OR THE GOLDEN MEAN. THEY DO NOT CALCULATE WHAT WILL BENEFIT A LIVING THING. Mutations are unconscious processes. They cannot lead to two symmetrical eyes and ears, symmetrical heart valves or two legs of the same length.
That is why one Turkish Darwinist, well aware of this fact and that transitional fossils do not exist, despairingly DESCRIBED HIMSELF AS A TRANSITIONAL FORM on a television program.
This is really a desperate state of affairs for Darwinists. Darwinists have no hesitations over rejecting the scientific facts and humiliating themselves for the sake of their ideology.
People need to be reminded that demagoguery no longer has any effect on people, since it has become a laughing stock. Darwin’s nightmare has come true, the fossil record refutes evolution.

Examining the fossil history and structural features of plants living on land, we come across facts that are incompatible with what the theory of evolution asserts. Plants shown in almost all biology books have no fossil records that verify the so-called evolutionary process. Most of today's species have left very satisfactory remains in the fossil records, and none of these shows any features confirming a transition from one species to the next. All are distinct species, created with their distinctive features in their original forms, and have left no transitional connections, as claimed. As evolutionist paleontologist E. C. Olson admits, the majority of plant groups emerged all of a sudden, leaving no ancestors. (E. C. Olson, The Evolution of Life, New York: The New American Library, 1965, p. 9)
The 50-million-year-old sycamore leaf fossil in the picture also verifies this fact.
Miracles Within The Molecule
When you hold this book in your hand, you are actually holding molecules. As you sip a cup of coffee, you are actually drinking molecules, and the coffee aroma that reaches your nose actually consists of scent molecules that you are breathing in. Your tongue that tastes the coffee and your eyes that read these lines are also nothing more than assortments of organic molecules. When you breathe, you are actually inhaling molecules from the outside atmosphere. It is thanks to these very molecules that you can see, smell and taste. And just like everything around you, your body itself is also made up of molecules.
But exactly what are these molecules that comprise you, your skin, the chair you sit in, a cat’s fur—and indeed, the entire universe? In fact, those molecules are nothing more than the mutual electron bonds shared among atoms far too small to be seen with the naked eye. By sharing electrons with each other, atoms link up in long-lasting partnerships, forming molecules. The results, invisible to the naked eye, are an astonishing and infinite variety of objects animate and inanimate, from planets to human beings, from rivers to green forests, from antelopes to railways, and from daisies to apples.
In a words accessible to everyone, this book examines how Allah (God) has created molecules and their extraordinary features by the seemingly simple means of bonds between atoms. Learning how invisible molecules make up all the matter in the universe, using your reason and conscience, we can begin to see our Lord’s infinite power, intellect and incomparable creations, will understand just how helpless we are before Him, and bow to Allah’s great might.
