Harun Yahya


Do not think that the human characters which have been described in this book are so very far from your own, because you may be somebody who has never read the Qur'an up to now or who has wanted to read it, but has given up because of the prejudices you have. Perhaps you took such a decision thinking you would be unable to find time because of the pressure of your daily tasks or perhaps you may have received completely illogical advice from those around you, such as "Don't read too much or you'll lose yourself." Or maybe you have not experienced any of these possibilities but the idea of reading the Qur'an has never even crossed your mind. But there is still a great opportunity before you: you can disobey the orders Satan gives to prevent people from reading the Qur'an, and listen to the voice of your conscience.

If you are a person who reads the Qur'an and knows the truths contained in its verses this is still a position in which there is a fine opportunity before you. As a person of conscience who has seen what great harm is suffered by people who flee from the Qur'an, you can encourage others to read and study the Qur'an. You can encourage people to read about the religion of Allah, live by Qur'anic morality and learn about the beautiful things which Islam offers.

Allah Who created the world and everything from nothing as a test for people, gave strength to Satan and allows him to say, "Do not hear, do not listen, do not think." But being aware of this test, you should block your ears against Satan's orders and listen to the voice of your conscience which tells you to hear and listen. Remember that Allah created your leaders who appear to be strong and masterful and who try to prevent you from believing in Allah to test you. Allah is testing you in respect of what answer you will give to the calls of Satan. In the same way, you should certainly not forget the fact that Allah is also the Creator of their voice which orders you not to read books telling about the truths in the Qur'an, to stay away from what is written in them and avoid thinking.

Do not forget that it is a mistake to feel overawed by other people, fearing them and obeying them without thinking, in the belief that each one of them has an independent power of his own. Really, every one of those people is conforming to the fate Allah has written for him and has no power to do anything that Allah does not desire. There is one absolute truth, that today or tomorrow, sooner or later, at some time everybody will meet with the angels of death and will be called upon completely alone for a reckoning. Like it or not, everybody will be wrapped in a white cloth, lowered 3 meters below the earth's surface and buried under the soil. Everybody will be called into the presence of Allah completely alone, so the deniers will not have those who influenced them and encouraged them to reject the Qur'an by their sides. So do not be deceived by the apparent health and strength of those who encourage you to deny the faith, because when the Day of Judgment comes, not one of those people will be with you. In a verse of the Qur'an, Allah has this to say:

You have come to Us all alone just as We created you at first, leaving behind you everything We bestowed on you. We do not see your intercessors accompanying you, those you claimed were your partners with Allah. The link between you is cut. Those you made such claims for have forsaken you. (Surat al-An'am: 94)

Because of this, before that day comes, abandon your flight from the truth of the Qur'an and spare time to read the Qur'an and think about its verses.

They said "Glory be to You!
We have no knowledge except what You have taught us.
You are the All-Knowing, the All-Wise."
(Qur'an, 2: 32)
