PRAYERS OF MUSLIMS IN THE QUR'AN
Surat al-Baqara, 200-202:
... There are some people who say, ‘Our Lord, give us good in thisworld.’ They will have no share in theHereafter.
And there are others who say, ‘OUR LORD, GIVE US GOOD IN THIS WORLD, AND GOOD IN THE HEREAFTER, AND SAFEGUARD US FROM THE PUNISHMENT OF THE FIRE.’ They will have a good share from what they have earned. Allah is swift at reckoning.
Surat al-Baqara, 285:
The Messenger believes in what has been sent down to him from his Lord, and so do the the believers. Each one believes in Allah and His angels and His Books and His Messengers. WE DO NOT DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN ANY OF HIS MESSENGERS. THEY SAY, ‘WE HEAR AND WE OBEY. FORGIVE US, OUR LORD! YOU ARE OUR JOURNEY’S END.’
Surat al-Baqara, 286:
Allah does not impose on any self any more than it can stand. For it is what it has earned; against it, what it has merited. OUR LORD, DO NOT TAKE US TO TASK IF WE FORGET OR MAKE A MISTAKE! OUR LORD, DO NOT PLACE ON US A LOAD LIKE THE ONE YOU PLACED ON THOSE BEFORE US! OUR LORD, DO NOT PLACE ON US A LOAD WE HAVE NOT THE STRENGTH TO BEAR!

The Design of Snowflakes
Anyone who takes a close look at snowflakes can see that they come in a variety of shapes. It is estimated that a single cubic meter of snow holds about 350 million snowflakes! These flakes are all hexagonal and have crystal-like structures. However, each one of them possesses a unique shape. For years, scientists have been searching for answers to such questions as how these shapes ever came about, how it is that each one of them has a different shape and what provides their symmetry. Every bit of information that is gained reveals another magnificent mastery present in the snowflakes. The variety and perfection of the hexagonal structure of snowflakes is a manifestation of God's status as the Originator. God is the One Who made good everything that He has created. The formation of snowflakes constitutes yet another aspect of God's endless artistry.
These thin, small flakes look like multi-pointed stars or tiny needle heads. The formation of the snowflakes in the pictures is truly amazing. For years, the orderly structure of snowflakes has caught people's attention. Since 1945, research has been carried out in a quest to discover which factors give the final shape to the crystals. A single snowflake is a pile of crystals consisting of more than 200 ice crystals. Snowflakes are made up of water molecules that are shaped in a perfect order. Snowflakes, one of nature's true architectural wonders, are shaped when water vapor gets cold while passing through clouds. This takes place like so:
Passing through the clouds, water molecules scattered everywhere in a disorganized way throughout water vapor begin to lose their random movement due to the fall in temperature. After a while, the water molecules, moving more slowly, begin to form groups and consequently become solid. Yet, there is no disorder whatsoever in their groupings. On the contrary, they always unite as microscopic hexagonal forms that look similar to each other. Each snowflake at first consists of a single hexagonal water molecule, then other hexagonal water molecules come and attach to this first piece. According to experts on the subject, the basic factor that determines the shape of a snowflake is that these hexagonal water molecules are joined together just like links in a chain. In addition, the pieces of crystals, which normally should look alike, take on very different shapes according to the temperature and level of moisture.
Why is it that there is a hexagonal symmetry in all snowflakes and why is each of them different from the others? Why are their edges angled rather then straight? Scientists are still trying to find answers to these questions. Yet, this much is evident: God is the One Who has no partners in creation, is the Possessor of an endless power and the Originator of everything.
SCIENTISTS ARE EMBARRASSED BY THE IDA CIRCUS
Even Darwinist scientists had no qualms about admitting: “THE IDA SHOW IS AN EMBARRASSMENT!”
The IDA FUROR, first acclaimed by the Darwinist Jorn Hurum, a paleontologist at the Museum of Natural History in Oslo, and then lauded to the skies by the Darwinist David Attenborough as the missing link that had been sought for so many years and described in the press under such headlines as “the ancestor of man” and “the eighth wonder of the world” has even attracted intense criticism from Darwinist scientists. In their eyes, this peculiar show IS LITERALLY A CLOWNING!
Many fossils have been made the subject of speculation during the history of the Darwinist deception. Theses have been written about many false fossils (there are 40 separate doctoral theses about PILTDOWN Man, which was subsequently established as a hoax). Pictures of these as the forerunner of human beings that never actually existed have appeared in Darwinist publications (pictures of Nebraska Man, based on the discovery of a single boar tooth, and his entire family appeared in newspapers for months on end). And some of these fakes have been taken from country to country and placed on display. All these fossils were the subject of intense Darwinist propaganda, to be replaced by a profound silence in Darwinist circles once they were shown to be false or hoaxes.
On occasion the speculation continued, quite shamelessly, even once fossils had been shown to be false. Haeckel’s false illustrations, for instance, continued to appear in text books even after Haeckel had admitted they were fraudulent. Another well-known example is the evolution of the horse series. Scientists have admitted that this series is a fantasy devoid of the slightest foundation. Yet the series is still exhibited and discussed in text books. That is the extent to which Darwinist speculation can be carried.
The furor over Ida resembles these previous instances, but also differs from them in one regard. This time, Darwinists have totally lost control. Because Darwinism is in a historic state of collapse. Darwinist stratagems are being exposed one by one. That is why Darwinists have made such a sudden fuss over a fossil lemur that had been kept on the shelf for 26 years. Some Darwinist scientists initially reacted with caution, issuing moderate statements along the lines of, “it is still too early to refer to it as a missing link.” But the propaganda reached such alarming dimensions and became so blatant that even Darwinist scientists were eventually forced in strong reaction against it.
What have Darwinist scientists said about Ida?
The scandal of the Ida furor has even been criticized by Darwinist scientists.
In an article carried under the title “The Missing Link?” on the ABC News Television web site, the Johns Hopkins University Carnegie Museum of Natural History paleontologist Chris Beard says:
"This fossil is not as close to monkeys, apes, and humans as we are being led to believe."1
In another article in New Scientist magazine titled “Why Ida Fossil Is Not The Missing Link?”, Beard openly states that Ida bears no similarity to human beings, for which reason it cannot be described as a missing link. No matter how much research may be put into it, Ida is not, according to the Darwinist Beard, in that sense the eighth wonder of the world.2 Beard makes it clear that the fossil in question is a fully formed and perfect one that can tell us much about biology.
The Duke University Richard Kay openly admits that there is no scientific analysis to prove that Ida is a missing link, in other words that THERE IS NO EVIDENCE AT ALL.3 Elwyn Simons, a Duke University paleoanthropologist, states that Ida tells us nothing we did not already know. 4
Perhaps the most honest criticism came from the Timesonline web site: “Attenborough...was just one element of the media circus turning Ida into humanity’s newest and best link with its ancient past.”
Timesonline made the following comments about the fossil:
“Such finds are usually unveiled to the world through the sober pages of an academic journal, but for Ida nothing less than a glittering press conference at the American Museum of Natural History in New York would do. Later the scientists who studied Ida outlined the details of their research. Their pronouncements were just as extravagant.”5
It will be useful to point out here in the context of Darwinists that the information contained in the sober pages of academic journals is not always of any scientific value. Historic scientific frauds such as Piltdown Man, Nebraska Man and Archaeoraptor were all announced over many pages and for many days in the serious academic journals in question. In order a find is to be of any scientific value, there needs to be scientific evidence of that. But since finds always conflict with their claims (fossils represent perfect life forms, but Darwinists are always on the look out for imaginary, semi-developed transitional forms), Darwinists are never able to produce any scientific evidence. Consequently, no matter how sober the academic journal is, the information given to defend Darwinism, is always only a deception.
Cambridge University Professor of Human Evolution Robert Foley says it is “meaningless” to describe this creature as a missing link.
Two well-known Darwinist paleontologists who share different views about the supposed evolution of man and who are therefore never able to agree, Elwyn Simons from Duke University and Christopher Beard from the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh, have made these comments about Ida:6
“Dr. Simons phoned me for the first time in 10 years to share his outrage about this MALARKEY and, for the first time in a decade, I agree with him,” said Beard last week. “...The roll-out was extraordinary and it is now clear that the scientists were under pressure to meet the showbusiness deadlines.”
Simons said, “It’s absurd and dangerous.” “This is all bad science... Darwinius is a wonderful fossil, but IT IS NOT A MISSING LINK OF ANY KIND. IT REPRESENTS A DEAD END IN EVOLUTION.”
In addition to the words of all these scientists setting out the scale of the Ida fraud, Jorn Hurum himself, introduced at the beginning of this article, also admits he performed a circus around Ida and attempts to justify this by saying: “Any pop band is doing the same thing. Any athlete is doing the same thing. We have to start thinking the same way in science.”
It will be appropriate at this point to recall that Hurum is someone who has made sensational use of fossils in the past. The fact that he has signed a contract with the Atlantic film company about the fossil Ida that he has made such a sensation out of is significant evidence of how far he has taken this circus and how the matter has nothing to do with science at all.
The fossil Ida, which has even been criticized by Darwinist scientists, is a crystal clear example of the dimension the Darwinist propaganda techniques we have been describing for so long can actually assume. Darwinist propaganda has been carried out by way of these techniques for the last 150 years. The reason why the Ida circus is now coming in for criticism from Darwinist scientists stems from an attempt to carry on with the circus even though the techniques of Darwinist propaganda have been exposed and that fossil in question has been proved to belong to a perfect life form and is in no way any kind of missing link. By being persisted in so shamelessly when the true facts are so obvious the circus has damaged Darwinists’ esteem and forced Darwinist scientists to react.
All Darwinists are of course well aware that Ida is not a transitional form but the fossil of a perfect life form. Contrary to all the speculation, Ida is a flawless life form that lived a perfect life some 47 million years ago. This fossil, which is 95% preserved and whose every detail can therefore be examined, CONTAINS NOT A SINGLE STRUCTURE SUGGESTIVE OF A TRANSITIONAL FORM CHARACTERISTIC. This extraordinary find IS PROOF OF THE FACT OF CREATION.

'The Theory of Evolution is a Satanic Trick' - 17.03.2009
The works of Harun Yahya, which have shown, in Turkey especially, how Darwinism is a deception, continue to attract considerable interest in both the national and international press. Le Figaro, one of France’s main dailies, covered the subject of “The collapse of Darwinism in Turkey,” which has recently entered the agenda once again. On 17 March, 2009, the paper ascribed the very high level of belief in Creation in Turkey to the activities of the Science Research Foundation, which it described as “An anti-Darwinist Muslim movement.” In summary, the report said this:
Adnan Oktar, known by the name of Harun Yahya, holds… conferences across the country, aimed at proving Creation... Harun Yahya’s efforts to attract people to his own faith (Islam) are not restricted to Turkey alone. In 2007, the French Education Ministry was severely alarmed by this Creationist offensive: Schools had been sent copies of a work called the Atlas of Creation... Written by Harun Yahya and weighing 6 kg, this luxurious work consists of 768 pages and makes use of a large number of illustrations, declaring that the theory of evolution “is a trick of satan’s.”
The concern over the Atlas of Creation in France undoubtedly reflects atheist and materialist philosophy’s concern over losing Darwinism, their supposed scientific foundation. But the ideological worries of those who have bound themselves to Darwinism are too late. Because the Atlas of Creation has arrived in Europe, and people have been convinced that living things never underwent evolution. It has thus been revealed, to the French and to all humanity, that Darwinism is nonsense. Today, we are witnessing the rapid spread of Creationist belief in Europe and clear proof of this.
…Truth has come and falsehood has vanished. Falsehood is always bound to vanish. (Surat al-Isra’, 81)
America Is Becoming Muslim From The Inside / Yeni Safak Newspaper / 26.01.2009
Many people who enter prison in America emerge as Muslims once they have served their sentences. Bilgin Erdogan, who has spent 5 years as an imam serving prisoners at SCI Huntingdon in the state of Pennsylvania and has been instrumental in 59 people converting to Islam during that time, summarizes this by saying, ‘One in four people in a prison housing 2400 inmates are Muslim.’ Erdogan has described how after converting to Islam, prisoners completely change their lives and are also instrumental in their families’ converting to Islam once they are released.
Bilgin Erdogan reveals there are some 600 Muslims in the institution in which he works, 400 of whom fast during Ramadan. And that he made the prisoners perform Friday prayers and gave khutba. He goes on to describe what he communicates in prison:
“We study the Qur’an and the hadith. I try to restore them to society. I try to instill compassion in their hearts. I speak of the faith as a reference point in order for them not to re-offend. There was one elderly prisoner who became a Muslim after entering prison. He had a wife and seven children. First his wife converted to Islam, and then his children and grandchildren. He was thus instrumental, in prison, in 49 people becoming Muslims.”
Asked why Americans are choosing Islam, Erdogan replies:
“Islam is the religion of human nature. The message of Islam is highly attractive, and people left face to face with their consciences on the inside have the opportunity to hear that message. Even if they are prisoners, they still enjoy a greater freedom of soul compared to the social dungeon on the outside. Convicts read the Qur’an and study Arabic. Tens of people perform the night prayer. Some even recite the Qur’an every 10 days.”
The Qur’an, the word of God, protects people against the deceits and snares of satan. As is revealed in the verses of the Qur’an, sent down by God as a path to salvation for all mankind:
News has come to them which contains a threat: consummate wisdom – but warnings are profitless. (Surat al-Qamar, 4-5)
Since Muslims spend every moment of their lives seeking to earn God’s approval, compassion and paradise, they never do anything unlawful. A community made up of true believers who genuinely fear God will be the most trustworthy society on Earth. Because these people always act in the light of the conception of love, affection, compassion and brotherhood that lies at the essence of Islam. They submit themselves to God as being good people until the last moment of their lives. This superior moral virtue of believers is revealed as follows in the Qur’an:
You who believe! Enter Islam totally. Do not follow in the footsteps of satan. He is an outright enemy to you. (Surat al-Baqara, 208)
Age: 83 million years
Location: He Zheng, Gan Su, China
If evolutionist claims were true, then there should once have been a very odd creature bearing features of both the antelope and some other life form. These animals, of which there is no trace in the fossil record, should immediately be identifiable, due to their sharing characteristics belonging to two different species, and should also exhibit an example of the supposed forebear-descendent relationship claimed by evolutionists. Yet not one single such intermediate form has ever been exhibited in evolutionist publications, which are filled with countless other myths and fictitious scenarios.
That is because no such fossil exists. And that is in turn because no such life form ever existed at any time.
Like the 83-million-year-old antelope in the picture, all living things have come down to the present day in exactly the same form in which they were first created. Natural history refutes evolutionist claims.
PRIORITY FOR TURKISH FIRMS IN FUTURE TENDERS FOR REBUILDING IRAQ
Allah is the Light of the heavens and Earth. The metaphor of His Light is that of a niche in which is a lamp, the lamp inside a glass, the glass like a brilliant star, lit from a blessed tree, an olive, neither of the east nor of the west, its oil all but giving off light even if no fire touches it. Light upon Light. Allah guides to His Light whoever He wills, makes metaphors for mankind, and has knowledge of all things. In houses that Allah has permitted to be built and in which His name is remembered, there are men who proclaim His glory morning and evening. ( Surat an-Nur, 35-36)
Allah, the Light of the heavens and Earth, manifests this attribute upon people. As a blessing, He illuminates His servants who believe in Him, recognize and appreciate His greatness, turn to Islam (the only just religion), and live by its morality:
Is he whose breast is opened to Islam, and who is therefore illuminated by his Lord…? Woe to those whose hearts are hardened against the remembrance of Allah! Such people are clearly misguided. ( Surat az-Zumar, 22)
For the unbelievers, however, there is not a single source of “illumination.” Moreover, they cannot find a way out of the darkness in which they exist. Allah describes this darkness in the following terms:
Or they are like the darkness of a fathomless sea that is covered by waves above, which are waves above which are clouds, layers of darkness, one upon the other. If he puts out his hand, he can scarcely see it. Those to whom Allah gives no light, they have no light. ( Surat an-Nur, 40)
While Allah leaves unbelievers in this darkness, He guides His faithful servants to the light. The following verse reveals that these two groups are mirror opposites and believers are absolutely superior, for:
Is someone who was dead and whom We brought to life, supplying him with a light by which to walk among people, the same as someone who is in utter darkness, unable to emerge from it? That is how what they were doing is made to seem attractive to the unbelievers. ( Surat al-An‘am, 122)
Allah sends down warnings to believers in order to guide them to the light. His Messengers and the just Books that they bring are all sources of “light.” Those who comply with the divine message attain the true path and are illuminated. The Qur'an proclaims:
O Prophet! We have sent you as a witness, a bringer of good news, a warner, a caller to Allah by His permission, and a light-giving lamp. ( Surat al-Ahzab, 45-46)
He sends down Clear Signs to His servant to bring you out of the darkness to the light. Allah is All-Gentle with you, Most Merciful. ( Surat al-Hadid, 9)
O People of the Book! Our Messenger has come to you, making clear to you much of the Book that you have kept concealed, and passing over a lot. A Light has come to you from Allah, and a Clear Book. By it, Allah guides those who follow what pleases Him to the ways of peace. He will bring them from the darkness to the light by His permission, and guide them to a straight path. ( Surat al-Ma'ida, 15-16)
Allah's true servants will live happily until they die, and will be recognized by their light. Unbelievers, on the other hand, will remain in infinite darkness in the Hereafter as well, and will ask believers for some of their light. As the Qur'an states:
On the Day you see the men and women of the believers, with their light streaming out in front of them, and to their right: “Good news for you today of gardens with rivers flowing under them, remaining in them timelessly, forever. That is the Great Victory.” That Day, the men and women of the hypocrites will say to those who believe: “Wait for us so that we can borrow some of your light.” They will be told: “Go back and look for light!” And a wall will be erected between them with a gate in it, on the inside of which there will be mercy but before whose exterior lies punishment. ( Surat al-Hadid, 12-13)
Allah is the Protector of those who believe. He brings them out of the darkness and into the light. But those who are unbelievers have false deities as protectors. They take them from the light into the darkness. Those are the Companions of the Fire, remaining in it timelessly, forever. ( Surat al-Baqara, 257)
He calls down blessing upon you, as do His angels, to bring you out of the darkness and into the light. He is Most Merciful to the believers. ( Surat al-Ahzab, 43)
And Earth will shine with the Pure Light of its Lord, the Book will be put in place, the Prophets and witnesses will be brought, and it will be decided between them with the truth. They will not be wronged. ( Surat az-Zumar, 69)
Those who believe in Allah and His Messengers—such people are the truly sincere—and the martyrs who are with their Lord will receive their wages and their light. But those who are unbelievers and deny Our Signs will be Companions of the Blazing Fire. ( Surat al-Hadid, 19)
O You who believe! Have fear [and awareness] of Allah and faith in His Messenger. He will give you a double portion of His mercy, grant you a Light by which to walk, and forgive you. Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. ( Surat al-Hadid, 28)
Prophet Muhammad (saas) advises believers to say the following in their prayers:
“Allahumma: Put light in my heart, light in my tongue, light in my sight, light in my hearing, light on my right, light on my left, light above me, light beneath me, light in front of me, and light behind me. Put light in my soul, and give me great light.” (Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim)
What He Said
Turkmeneli TV, April 22-2008
Adnan Oktar: Turkish businessmen there are making a mistake. They must go to Kerkuk with a joy and enthusiasm of service rather than from a sense of making a profit, because the region is full of Turks, it is a province of ours. It should be as if they are opening up installations in Konya. The state needs to encourage that, and the press and the television.

“Priority for Turkish Firms in Future
Tenders for Rebuilding Iraq”
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.
“… And he languished in prison for a number of years more.” (Surah Yusuf, 42).
According to an exegesis of this verse, Joseph (Peace be upon him) is the patron of prisoners, and prison is a sort of School of Joseph. (Madrasa-i Yusufiya)
This interpretation was offered by one of the greatest Islamic scholars of the 20th century, Bediuzzaman Said Nursi, who devoted much of his life to the teaching of the morality of the Qur’an, and because of that earned the animosity of certain circles. Ultimately, he spent 30 years of his life in prison and exile.
Evolutionists' Ape-Man Stories Are not Based on Any Evidence
Evolutionists produce totally unrealistic illustrations and fossil reconstructions. They have no other significance than to reflect evolutionists' vivid imaginations and be used as tools for evolutionist propaganda. There is no scientific basis to this technique, which is employed only to indoctrinate society with evolutionary scenarios.
The pre-eminent deception of Darwinism is that human beings evolved from ape-like creatures-a claim that's been imposed on the popular imagination by way of countless of imaginary drawings and models. In fact, there is no evidence that such "ape-men" ever lived. Australopithecus, commonly depicted as today's man's earliest ancestor, of, was in fact an extinct species of ape not so very different from chimpanzees. Classifications such as Homo erectus, Homo sapiens neandertalensis and Homo sapiens archaic, which follow Australopithecus in the so-called family tree of humans, are actually different human races. The small anatomical differences between these classifications and today's man can also be observed among different races alive today, such as native Australians, pygmies and Inuit, or Eskimos.
