In the magazine Familja, published in the Albanian capital Tirana, regularly carries articles by Harun Yahya. One of the Harun Yahya articles published in this magazine describes the transitory nature of life in this world:

"...Mortality is surely a grave topic to ponder. Until this moment in his life, it may well be that the person is unaware of the significance of this reality. But it is never too late to repent to Allah, and to reorient all one's deeds and the conduct of one's life in submission to the will of Allah. Life is short; the human soul is eternal. During this short period, one should not allow temporary passions to control one. A person should resist temptation and keep himself away from everything that will strengthen his bonds to this world. It is surely unwise to neglect the next world just for the sake of the temporary joys of this one...."

Al Jumuah Magazine's focus is to provide Islamic knowledge based on the Qur'an and Sunnah for both Muslims and non-Muslims. Harun Yahya's articles, which are regularly published in this magazine, one of the most popular Islamic magazines in the USA, give an insight into science and faith related issues with quotes from the Qur'an and the Hadith of the Prophet. One article published in this magazine titled "Communicating Wonders of Allah's Creation" reads:

It is exceedingly important that true believers should be on their guard against trends of thought that oppose Allah and religion. The duty of a Muslim in the face of Darwinism is to destroy that great lie and to proclaim the truth of creation.

When we look at the life of Allah's Messenger, in whom there is "an excellent model for believers" (Surat al-Ahzab: 21), we see that he often thought about the glory of Allah's creation and shared his contemplations with the believers around him. We learn from ahadiths of Allah's Messenger (saas) that he "stood up amongst the believers for a long period and informed them about the beginning of creation" (Sahih Bukhari, Book 54, Volume 4, Book 54, Number 414)

So, a great and important responsibility falls to people of good conscience to wage a scientific fight and make a great effort to do away with the Darwinist, materialist thought that opposes the Qur'an.

Water is "just right" for life to a degree that cannot be compared with any other liquid. The larger part of this planet, a world whose other attributes (temperature, light, electromagnetic spectrum, atmosphere, surface, etc.) are all suitable for life, has been filled with just the right amount of water necessary for life. It should be obvious that this cannot all be accidental and that there must instead be intentional design.
