Say: ‘Am I to take anyone other than Allah as my protector, the Bringer into Being of the heavens and the earth, He who feeds and is not fed?’ Say: ‘I am commanded to be the first of the Muslims,’ and, ‘Do not be among the mushrikun.’ (Surat al-An’am, 14)
Those who are most aware of death and prepare themselves for it, are the wisest of people. (Fiqh-us-Sunnah, Volume 4, Number 13)
The messenger of Allah: Muhammad (saas)
We know a lot more about the Messenger of Allah, Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, since he is the last prophet and lived only 1,400 years ago. People altered and distorted all the religions Allah revealed before him. That is why the last Book for which people will be held responsible until the Day of Judgment was sent to our Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace: to set right all the errors that had been incorporated in the old religions.
Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, also encountered many difficulties while communicating the message of Allah to his people. Many groundless accusations were made against him, despite the fact that he asked for no wages from people and had no worldly interests.
He was forced to migrate from Makkah, the city in which he was born. The first Muslims who followed him were also persecuted, some of them were even tortured and subjected to cruel treatment. But Allah did not allow the disbelievers to do harm to the religion of Islam, which has remained unaltered to this day. In compliance with Allah's promise, every word of the Qur'an has survived completely intact.
The call of the Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, also addresses all people alive today. Allah commanded all people to obey the messengers and, in many verses, stressed that obeying His messengers is actually obeying Him. For this reason, obeying our Prophet -may Allah bless him and grant him peace, -is one of the most important and essential principles of Islam. Heartfelt submission to the commands of our Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, is surely a manifestation of one's obedience to Allah.
In the Qur'an, Allah introduces us to the superior attributes of our Prophet, which set an example to all people. Some of these verses are as follows:
A Messenger has come to you from among yourselves. Your suffering is distressing to him; he is deeply concerned for you; he is gentle and merciful to the believers. (Surat at-Tawba, 128)
Allah showed great kindness to the believers when He sent a Messenger to them from among themselves to recite His Signs to them and purify them and teach them the Book and Wisdom, even though before that they were clearly misguided. (Surah Al 'Imran, 164)
In one verse, Allah states that those slaves who fear Allah and want to be forgiven must obey the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace:
Say, "If you love Allah, then follow me and Allah will love you and forgive you for your wrong actions. Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful." (Surah Al 'Imran, 31)
As mentioned in the verse above, if we want Allah to love us, we need to comply with that to which our Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, calls us and meticulously practise it.
Special Freezing System
A frozen frog embodies an unusual biological structure. It shows no signs of life. Its heartbeat, breathing and blood circulation have come completely to a halt. When the ice melts, however, the same frog returns to life as if it is has woken up from sleep.
Normally, a living being in the state of freezing confronts many fatal risks. The frog, however, does not face any of them. It has the main feature of producing plenty of glucose while it is in that state. Just like a diabetic, the blood sugar level of the frog reaches very high levels. It can sometimes go as high as 550 milimol/liter. (This figure is normally between 1-5 mmol/litre for frogs and 4-5 mmol/litre for human body). This extreme glucose concentration may cause serious problems in normal times.
In a frozen frog, however, this extreme glucose keeps water from leaving cells and prevents shrinkage. The cell membrane of the frog is highly permeable to glucose so that glucose finds easy access to cells. The high level of glucose in the body reduces the freezing temperature causing only a very small amount of the animal's inner body liquid to turn to ice in the cold. Research has showed that glucose can feed frozen cells as well. During this period, besides being the natural fuel of the body, glucose also stops many metabolic reactions like urea synthesis and thus prevents different food sources of the cell from being exhausted.
How does such a high amount of glucose in the frog's body come about all of a sudden? The answer is quite interesting: this living being is equipped with a very special system in charge of this task. As soon as ice appears on the skin, a message travels to the liver making the liver convert some of its stored glycogen into glucose. The nature of this message traveling to the liver is still unknown. Five minutes after the message is received, the sugar level in the blood steadily starts to increase.
Unquestionably the animal's being equipped with a system that entirely changes its metabolism to meet all of its needs just when it is required can only be possible through the flawless plan of the All-Mighty Creator. No coincidence can generate such a perfect and complex system.
Clearing away conflict between Muslims is a must
That Day, no one will punish as He punishes and no one will shackle as He shackles. ( Surat al-Fajr, 89:25-26)
Despite all of the surrounding evidence, those who have no faith in Allah and who insist upon disregarding His grandeur and power surely deserve a great punishment, for Allah created us, placed us on Earth, and provided us with whatever we need. However, despite all of these blessings, some people insist on denial and even hate believers and try to destroy their faith. No doubt, such people will be repaid both in this world and beyond.
Allah directs some affairs in this world through His Messengers and sometimes punishes unbelievers in this world through the hands of His Messengers. Allah reveals this fact in the Qur'an, as follows:
If the hypocrites and those with a sickness in their hearts and the rumor-mongers in Madina do not desist, We will set you upon them. Then they will only be your neighbors there for a very short time. They are an accursed people. Wherever they are found, they should be seized and mercilessly put to death. This is Allah's pattern with those who passed away before. You will not find any alteration in Allah's pattern. ( Surat al-Ahzab, 33:60-62)
Their fearsome punishment in the Hereafter will continue to exist, unless Allah wills otherwise, for all eternity. Allah created various forms of psychological and physical punishments, for He knows each person's most secret weaknesses. Thus, He is the One Who can give the most suitable punishment. According to the following verses:
But as for those who do not believe in the Hereafter, We have prepared for them a painful punishment. ( Surat al-Isra', 17:10)
But as for those who are deviators, their refuge is the Fire. Every time that they want to get out, they are put straight back into it again and are told: “Taste the punishment of the Fire, which you denied.” We will give them a taste of lesser punishment before the greater punishment, so that hopefully they will turn back. ( Surat as-Sajda, 32:20-21)
Tell My servants that I am the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful, but also that My punishment is the Painful Punishment. ( Surat al-Hijr, 15:49-50)
Those before them also plotted, and Allah came at their building from the foundations and the roof caved in on top of them. The punishment came at them from where they did not expect. ( Surat an-Nahl, 16:26)
As for those who were unbelievers and barred access to the way of Allah, We will heap punishment on top of their punishment because of the corruption they brought about. ( Surat an-Nahl, 16:88)
However, we need to remember that Allah creates infinite opportunities for each of us to repent and take refuge in His mercy. When we turn to Him in sincere repentance we will find our Lord to be the most merciful and compassionate, regardless of what type of sins one has committed. Allah gives the good news of His infinite mercy to His servants who sincerely repent:
But if anyone repents after his wrongdoing and puts things right, Allah will turn toward him. Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. ( Surat al-Ma'ida, 5:39)
But I am Ever-Forgiving to anyone who repents, believes, acts rightly, and then is guided. (Surah Ta Ha, 20:82)
The Walayat (saintship) will come to an end with Hazrat Mahdi (as)
In his work “al-Jawab al-Mustaqim,” written as an answer to questions posed by al-Hakim al-Tirmidhi in his “Hatm’al-awliya,” Muhyiddin Ibn Arabi writes:
“The age of property will come to an end with him, [Hazrat Mahdi (as)], and walayat will end with him...” (Muhyiddin IbnArabi, al-Jawab al-Mustaqim amma Seele anhu al-Hakim al-Tirmidhi, Bayazid, no: 3750, sheet 242b)Bugun, July 01, 2010
Behaving like hooligans instead of science is all Darwinists can do
Darwinists fear science. They are terrified that the truths revealed by science will be realized, known and spread across the world. The reason for this is that everything about science has demolished and invalidated the theory of evolution.
It is for that reason that Darwinists CAN NEVER GIVE ANYONE A SCIENTIFIC ANSWER.
- AGGRESSION is their sole response to the scientific evidence.
- THEY EXPRESS THEIR OPPOSITION to the evidence revealed by science and anti-evolution conferences WITH PLACARDS AND PROTESTS instead of with scientific evidence.
- THEY TRY TO CLOSE DOWN exhibitions displaying scientific evidence – the authentic fossil specimens.
- THEY TRY TO BURN books containing scientific evidence.
- THEY SUE people who try to teach the scientific evidence in schools.
- They reject in utter terror invitations to face-to-face debates from adherents of Creation, and never issue such requests themselves.
- Instead of responding to scientific evidence with more science, Darwinists resort to, DESPOTISM, AGGRESSION, BRUTE FORCE, AND HUE AND CRY because THEY HAVE NO SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE, and this is the only method they know.
Darwinists shelter behind concepts such as democracy, rights, freedom and freedom of thought at every available opportunity, and suddenly turn bigoted and aggressive when the invalidity of their claims is proved. They immediately disregard the concepts such as freedom of thought, the right to free speech, democracy and freedom of thought that they hide behind. They constantly maintain that they are democratic, enlightened people who espouse freedom of thought, but when the proofs of Creation are set out they suddenly become irritable and even aggressive. With regard to their claims IT IS DARWINISTS THEMSELVES WHO HAVE FIXED MINDS AND ARE FANATICAL, BIGOTED AND OBSESSIVE since Darwinism is not a conclusion reached from science. On the contrary, IT IS A FALSE AND HERETICAL BELIEF REFUTED BY SCIENCE. THEY TRY TO KEEP IT ALIVE BY BEHAVING LIKE HOOLIGANS because it is based solely on ideology and a superstitious belief system.
Darwinism has been wearing people down for years under the protection of the Darwinist dictatorship. If Darwinism today dominates institutions of state across the world, that is solely because of THE DESPOTIC AND AGGRESSIVE POLICY OF INTIMIDATION IN QUESTION.
If a Darwinist comes to a scientific conference with placards in his hands instead of evidence, if he tries to shout down scientific statements, if he imagines he can attack and intimidate the opponents of evolution and if he is removed from a scientific conference under police escort, these things are quite enough for us to see the true face of Darwinism. The news of the demolition of Darwinism has sparked an extraordinary panic among Darwinists. But no despotic action can keep Darwinists’ false religion alive. This is the law of Allah. Our Lord Allah, Who knows all things, reveals in a verse how believers will always be victorious:
We hurl the truth against falsehood and it cuts right through it and it vanishes clean away! Woe without end for you for what you portray! (Surat al-Anbiya’, 18)
Many miraculous features of the Qur’an prove it is the word of Allah. Facts are revealed in the verses through the scientific facts, the descriptions of the past and the mathematical codes, that could never have been known to anyone at the time. In addition, developments that could never have been learned with the level of knowledge and technology of the time were also indicated in the verses of the Qur’an before the event. The fact that some scientific facts we only attained with 20th and 21st-century technology were revealed in the Qur’an 1400 years ago is clear evidence that the Qur’an cannot be the work of any human being.
One of the verses that may be referring to the future is verse 73 of Surat al-Baqara:
Remember when you killed someone and violently accused each other of it, and Allah brought out what you were hiding. We said, ‘Hit him with part of it!’ In that way Allah gives life to the dead and He shows you His Signs so that hopefully you will understand. (Surat al-Baqara, 72-73)
Among the meanings of the Arabic term “biba’diha,” translated as “with part of it” in the above verse, is “someone or some people.” In the context of that meaning, the verse may be a reference to heart massage, striking the chest from above, which makes it possible to restart the heart if it has stopped beating. (Allah knows the truth.)
The person to whom the massage is administered has the characteristics of a dead body; loss of consciousness, and the cessation of respiration and heartbeat. With our present-day knowledge, heart massage can be applied to someone whose heart has stopped, enabling heartbeat and vital functions to resume. Pressure is applied to the rib cage at specific intervals during heart massage, and the rhythmic contraction required for it to continue pumping blood is thus established.
In that context, the striking of a dead body in such a way as to restore it to life, as stated in the verse, may be suggestive of the heart massage technique. The Qur’an is the word of Almighty Allah, He Who creates all things from nothing, Whose knowledge enfolds all things, and Who is unfettered by time and space. Every verse of the Qur’an therefore contains information revealed with the wisdom of our Almighty Lord. In one verse, Allah refers to the Qur’an itself as follows:
... Will they not ponder the Qur’an? If it had been from other than Allah, they would have found many inconsistencies in it. (Surat an-Nisa’, 82)
Age: 490 to 443 million years
Location: Kataoua Formation, Morocco
Starfish generally live on the sea floor, and some species live at depths of 7,000 meters. Evolutionists are in a hopeless position when faced with these echinoderms, which have survived unchanged for around half a billion years. These creatures have remained exactly the same, not for 10 million or 100 million years, nor even for 200 million, but for roughly 500 million years.
If evolutionists’ claims were true, then starfish should long since have turned into different life forms over the course of 500 million years, and the remains of many odd-looking creatures, half-starfish and partly some other invertebrate, should be visible in the fossil record. Yet the fossil record contains no such evidence for evolutionists’ claims.
As the 500-million-year-old starfish pictured here proves, starfish have always existed as starfish, are not descended from any other life form, and never turned into any other species.
Turkey is the natural leader of the Middle Asia and the Middle East
What He Said
Kanal Avrupa, 25 April 2010
Adnan Oktar: Turkey being a super nation, Turkey being the leader of the world is an extremely vital matter. Because the most scrupulous people, morally the best people are in Turkey. For example, look, I’m not segregating… Look, America cannot do it, you see… But Turkey goes for example to Afghanistan and everyone cherishes. And even the American soldiers hang up Turkish flags on their cars so that they can be safe. So isn’t it all clear? For example, we go to Somali and see that it’s the Turks. We go to Bosnia, and again the Turks are cherished and loved very much. For example, there are French soldiers and they get disturbed. They cannot establish that humane and warm environment. In Bosnia, Turkish soldiers for example go into a mosque and the men there cry out of happiness. They just love it. They go to a restaurant and they don’t get their money, right? Look, they say to America, “Rule the world”, you see! They destroyed Afghanistan, they destroyed Iraq. It has cost hundreds of thousands of people and it destroyed their own citizens as well, American men right? Thousands of American guys, they destroyed them there. They lead to the destruction of thousands of Muslims. Afghanistan is now in great misery, pity on them. Iraqis are also the same. Mosques are being bombed every day. What kind of ruling the world is this? What kind of a world leadership this is? Had there been the Turkish-Islamic Union with Turkey as the leader, there would be no such destruction. Would that be possible? It cannot even be considered. The whole world knows this. This is why America begs. They say, come to Iraq and increase the number of soldiers, but we’ll be there as well. No way. You will leave there completely right? You will surrender the place to us and then okay. Think about America completely retreating from Iraq and Turkish soldiers taking control. There is no need for anything else. Problem would be solved. There would be peace immediately. In Afghanistan, even a single troop would be enough, to the whole Afghanistan. Only a single Turkish troop can go and it would be over. America retrieves completely and they would rejoice. Therefore, our brothers have to be very insistent on the leadership of Turkey. For example, there is a riot in Kirghizstan. Had there been a single Turkish troop there, only one, the Kyrgyz would cherish them. It’s not possible for such a riot to go off, impossible. There is the Turkish-Islamic Union and such an incident happens? There is no leader. They go to everywhere in the Parliament and they beat people up and throw them out, so there is a scandal going on. “When there is the Turkish-Islamic Union, there will be the biggest army of the whole world” says Bediuzzaman. So it is already certain that this will happen. The armies of all of the Islamic countries will be united in a single center. Turkey’s experience is obvious. For example, if you think that Turkish military officers train the armies of the whole Muslim and Turkic countries; this would mean a perfect discipline and a perfect army. Very just, reasonable, compassionate and modern right? There would be a very reasonable and beautiful structure. This can happen if it is kept on the agenda insistently.
Zaman, 18 June 2010
At a meeting held in Amasya, Yoshiaki Sasaki, the head consultant of Middle East of Japan, said that Turkey is the natural leader of the Middle Asia and the Middle East. Sasaki who pointed out that the only country that can assure peace in the region is Turkey, defined Turkey as a country whose friendship one cannot give up.
There is no compulsion where deen is concerned. Right guidance has become clearly distinct from error. Anyone who rejects false deities and believes in Allah has grasped the Firmest Handhold, which will never give way. Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing. (Surat al-Baqara, 256)
Islam is a religion based on love and compassion, which calls for peace and fosters a life in absolute sincerity and honesty before Allah. Therefore it is vitally important for the one to live by the religion of Islam to be a Muslim with his own will and aspiration and observe Allah's commands and advise from heart and soul through personal conscientious contentment.
Muslims instruct goodness and rule out evil as to Allah's command to "command what is right and forbid what is wrong" (Surah Luqman, 17) and call people to the path of Allah with words of purity. Yet, believers know Allah guides to the right way (Surah Al-Qasas, 56), so after elucidating the truth they leave people to their own freedom of conscience. The contrary is out of the question, because trying to make someone Muslim by means of pressure, threat or force is primarily against the essence of Islam...
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.
