Your Lord expands the provision of anyone He wills and restricts it. He is aware of and sees His slaves. (Surat al-Isra’, 30)
O Allah, make my constitution and conduct good. O Allah, save me from bad character and conduct. (Imam Ghazzali's Ihya Ulum-Id-Din, VolumeII, p.234)
Sending a warner manifests Allah's name All-Merciful
Out of His endless mercy and compassion, Allah has sent messengers to warn humanity and teach them about the Hereafter and life’s real meaning and purpose. His messengers struggled throughout their lives to direct human beings to the straight path by rescuing them, with Allah’s permission, from a life of ignorance. For example, the Prophet Noah (pbuh) made a great effort to tell his people about Allah’s existence and eternal power, and to lead them away from their mistaken views and beliefs. Undeterred by their rebellion and rejection, he did his best to carry out Allah’s commands:
He [Noah] said: “My Lord, I have called my people night and day, but my calling has only made them more evasive. Indeed, every time I called them to Your forgiveness, they put their fingers in their ears, wrapped themselves up in their clothes, and were overweeningly arrogant. Then I called them openly. Then I addressed them publicly and addressed them privately.” (Surah Nuh, 5-9)
These messengers’ sincere efforts are a great blessing for believers and a manifestation of our Lord’s great love for His servants. As a mercy from Allah, messengers struggle against unbelief and, without any expectation of reward, try to show believers the way to the straight path:
Allah showed great kindness to the believers when He sent a Messenger to them from among themselves to recite His Signs to them, purify them, and teach them the Book and Wisdom, even though before that they were clearly misguided. (Surah Al ‘Imran, 164)
For this We sent a Messenger to you from among yourselves to recite Our Signs to you, purify you teach you the Book and Wisdom, and teach you things you did not know before. (Surat al-Baqara, 151)
[Noah asked his people:] “Or are you astonished that a reminder should come to you from your Lord by way of a man from among you, to warn you and make you guard against evil so that, hopefully, you will gain mercy?” (Surat al-A’raf, 63)
We have only sent you [O Muhammad] as a mercy to all the worlds. (Surat al-Anbiya, 107)
Allah’s blessed messengers are the most trustworthy, honest, good-tempered, moral, intelligent, circumspect, perceptive, courageous, and patient people in the world. They evoke trust in everyone, are sincere and zealous, and their creation is a great act of His generosity. Messengers are also exemplary in their moral lives. They are a boon to their societies, for they invite people to follow His way, to obey the Qur’an, avoid evil deeds, and embrace goodness and honesty. They remind people of life’s transitory nature and that real life is in the eternal world to come. The Qur’an tells us that a messenger is sent to every society:
We have sent you with the truth, bringing good news and giving warning. There is no community to which a warner has not come. (Surah Fatir, 24)
Nor were you on the side of the mount when We called. Yet it is a mercy from your Lord, so that you can warn a people to whom no warner came before, so that, hopefully, they will pay heed. (Surat al-Qasas, 46)
O People of the Book. Our Messenger has come to you, making things clear to you, after a period with no Messengers, lest you should say: “No one came to us bringing good news or a warning.” Someone has come to you bringing good news and a warning. Allah has power over all things. (Surat al-Ma’ida, 19)
Messengers were a great blessing to the societies to which they were sent, for they taught people things they did not know and showed them how to live a life of contentment, security, peace, and justice. As a consolation, the Qur’an tells us that throughout history only a very few people have ever approached the messengers out of appreciation of their being a great mercy for them: “Those are the Signs of the Book. And what has been sent down to you from your Lord is the Truth. But most people have no faith” (Surat ar-Ra’d, 1). Those who denied Allah could never believe; others believed what the messengers said but never implemented their teachings or lived by the Qur’an’s morality. Such situations never deterred the messengers, however, because their sole desire was to see their people believe, know the blessing of this life and the Hereafter, and live the best and happiest life possible: “Then We will rescue Our Messengers and those who believe as well. It is incumbent upon Us to rescue the believers” (Surah Yunus, 103). The messengers receive no reward if the people around then believe and are happy in both worlds. But because of their sincere fear and respect for Allah and their superior morality, they spend their lives eagerly fulfilling these two commands as best as they can.
They endure great hardships and face many trials, and yet remain undaunted by anything. With Allah’s help and support, they are paradigms of courage and, by His will, are always victorious.
Allah has written: “I will be victorious, I and My Messengers.” Allah is Most Strong, Almighty. (Surat al-Mujadala, 21)
As for those who make Allah their friend, and His Messenger and those who believe: It is the party of Allah that is victorious! (Surat al-Ma’ida, 56)
Allah, Who has endless mercy for His servants, calls every human being to the straight path through His messengers, gives every person enough time to heed advice, explains the truth in various ways, and rewards everyone as they deserve. The Qur’an says that a society that has not received a messenger will not be destroyed, as that would violate His justice:
That was because their Lord would never have destroyed the cities unjustly while their people were unaware. (Surat al-An’am, 131)
Your Lord would never destroy any cities without first sending to their chief a Messenger to recite Our Signs to them. We would never destroy any cities unless their inhabitants were wrongdoers. (Surat al-Qasas, 59)
An Example of Irreducible Complexity: The Eye of the Lobster
There are many different types of eye in the living world. We are accustomed to the camera-type eye found in vertebrates. This structure works on the principle of the refraction of light, which falls onto the lens and is focused on a point behind the lens inside the interior of the eye.
However, the eyes possessed by other creatures work by different methods. One example is the lobster. A lobster's eye works on a principle of reflection rather than that of refraction.
The most outstanding characteristic of the lobster eye is its surface, which is composed of numerous squares. As shown in the picture on the next page, these squares are positioned most precisely.
The eye of a lobster shows a remarkable geometry not found elsewhere in nature - it has tiny facets that are perfectly square, so it "looks like perfect graph paper."
These well-arranged squares are in fact the ends of tiny square tubes forming a structure resembling a honeycomb. At first glance, the honeycomb appears to be made up of hexagons, although these are actually the front faces of hexagonal prisms. In the lobster's eye, there are the squares in place of hexagons.
Even more intriguing is that the sides of each one of these square tubes are like mirrors that reflect the incoming light. This reflected light is focused onto the retina flawlessly. The sides of the tubes inside the eye are lodged at such perfect angles that they all focus onto a single point.
The extraordinary nature of the design of this system is quite indisputable. All of these perfect square tubes have a layer that works just like a mirror. Furthermore, each one of these cells is sited by means of precise geometrical alignments so that they all focus the light at a single point.
It is obvious that the design in the lobster eye presents a great difficulty for the theory of evolution. Most importantly, it exemplifies the concept of "irreducible complexity." If even one of its features - such as the facets of the eye, which are perfect squares, the mirrored sides of each unit, or the retina layer at the back - were eliminated, the eye could never function. Therefore, it is impossible to maintain that the eye evolved step-by-step. It is scientifically unjustifiable to argue that such a perfect design as this could have come about haphazardly. It is quite clear that the lobster eye was created as a miraculous system.
One can find further traits in the lobster's eye that nullify the assertions of evolutionists. An interesting fact emerges when one looks at creatures with similar eye structures. The reflecting eye, of which the lobster's eye was one example, is found in only one group of crustaceans, the so-called long-bodied decapods. This family includes the lobsters, the prawns and the shrimp.
The other members of the crustacea class display the "refracting type eye structure", which works on completely different principles from those of the reflecting type. Here, the eye is made up of hundreds of cells like a honeycomb. Unlike the square cells in a lobster eye, these cells are either hexagonal or round. Furthermore, instead of reflecting light, small lenses in the cells refract the light onto the focus on the retina.
The majority of crustaceans have the refracting eye structure. On the contrary, only one group of the crustaceans, namely the long-bodied decapods, have reflecting eyes. According to evolutionist assumptions, all the creatures within the class Crustacea should have evolved from the same ancestor. Therefore, evolutionists claim that reflecting eye evolved from a refracting eye, which is far more common among the crustacea and of a fundamentally simpler design.
However, such reasoning is impossible, because both eye structures function perfectly within their own systems and have no room for any "transitional" phase. A crustacean would be left sightless and would be eliminated by natural selection if the refracting lens in its eye were to diminish and be replaced by reflecting mirrored surfaces.
It is, therefore, certain that both of these eye structures were designed and created separately. There is such superb geometric precision in these eyes that entertaining the possibility of "coincidence" is simply ludicrous. Just like the rest of the miracles of creation, the lobster's eye structure is an open testimony to the Creator's boundless power to create flawlessly. This is nothing but a manifestation of God's endless knowledge, wisdom and might. We can encounter such miracles as these regardless of what we examine in the world of creation.
Noah's Ark has been found (with documents)
He is the Living —there is no deity but Him—so call upon Him, making your religion sincerely His. Praise be to Allah, the Lord of all the worlds. (Surah Ghafir, 40:65)
Being weak, what we can actually do is very limited. After we are born, we spend 5-10 years developing our intelligence through education and need constant care. Later on, we spend a great deal of time meeting our bodily needs (e.g., sleeping, and working to acquire food, clothing, and a place to live) and keeping ourselves clean and fresh.
Almost one-quarter of our life is spent in sleep. No matter how much we resist the need to sleep and use that time to engage in other activities, we cannot endure sleep deprivation for more than a few days. Indeed, such a lack of sleep affects our nervous systems by leaving us drowsy and unable to concentrate, and leads to poor memory and physical performance. If sleep deprivation continues, mood swings may develop.
All creatures have a fragile nature. Allah, the Creator of all beings, is al-Hayy (The Living). He controls everything at every moment, knows everything, and has power over all things. He is not subject to drowsiness or sleep, and is exalted above all forms of weakness. He gives various weaknesses to His servants, and commands them to recognize these weaknesses, serve Him, and ask Him for everything. Given these inherent weaknesses, we turn to our Lord, aware that we cannot live for another second unless He wills it. Several verses inform us about this attribute, as follows:
Allah, there is no deity but Him, the Living, the Self-Sustaining. (Surah Al ‘Imran, 3:2)
Put your trust in the Living, Who does not die, and glorify Him with praise. He is well aware of the wrong actions of His servants. (Surat al-Furqan, 25:58)
Faces will be humbled to the Living, the All-Sustaining, and anyone weighed down with wrongdoing will have failed. (Surah Ta Ha, 20:111)
Our Prophet's (saas) addresses to Hazrat Mahdi (as)
Hazrat Mahdi (as) is the peacock (adornment) of the Paradise. (Bihar al-Anwar, Vol 51, p. 105)
Hazrat Mahdi (as), one of my children, comes into being, by the blessing of Allah, upon the approach of the Day of Judgment; the weakening of the believers' hearts because of death, hunger, fitnah and the disappearance of the Sunnah; and the emergence of innovations and the loss of means by which to enjoin the right and forbid the wrong. His justice and prosperity will ease the believers' hearts, and friendship and love will settle between the non-Arab and the Arab nations. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 66)
Imam Hussain (as) is reported as saying: “When Hazrat Mahdi (as) appears, people will not recognize him. Then HE [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] WILL COME HAVING A BEAUTIFUL VISAGE...” (Iqdud Durar, p. 41)
A MAN CALLED AL-HARITH IBN HARRATH (LION) WILL COME FORTH FROM MA WARA AN-NAHR (TRANSOXIANA). His army will be led by a man called Mansur who will establish or consolidate things for Muhammad's family as Quraysh consolidated them for the Messenger of Allah (saas). Every believer must help him. (Sunan Abu Dawud, Book 36, 4277; Narrated Ali ibn AbuTalib; At-Taj al-jami' lil 'usul fi ahadith al-Rasul, Mansur 'Ali Nasif, Vol. 5, p. 617)
How was Tiktaalik roseae turned into a false intermediate fossil by Darwinists?
Many aspects of the Darwinist deception regarding Tiktaalik Roseae, for long years the subject of speculation by Darwinists, have been exposed. Darwinist fraud, which we have maintained on the agenda so many times, has once again been revealed with new aspects. It has again been seen that people are being misled by Darwinists; TIKTAALIK ROSEAE IS NOTHING MORE THAN A SPECIES OF ALLIGATOR:
* There are various very important facts about Tiktaalik Roseae that need to be known. The Tiktaalik Roseae fossil, that has to date been comprehensive depicted with odd-looking legs and even its whole body, reconstructions of which have been prepared and these fantastical reconstructions put on display in museums, and which has for years been described as an intermediate fossil in books, in fact CONSISTS SOLELY OF A SKULL.
* None of the bones added onto the skull belong to this life form at all, CONSISTING OF BONES BELONGING TO OTHER LIFE FORMS discovered in the same fossil-rich strata.
* The fin fragments that have been attempted to be linked to this animal in fact belong to other fossil fishes living in the same strata. DELIBERATE ATTEMPTS HAVE BEEN MADE TO PORTRAY THESE AS BEING PART OF THE DISCOVERED SKULL. In this way, Tiktaalik Roseae has been turned into a false intermediate fossil.
* Therefore, all the speculation about the animal’s skull and the other parts added onto it is FALSE.
* All the characteristics of the skull are CHARACTERISTICS BELONGING TO ALLIGATORS: The eyes being close to one another and located on the top of the head, the flat skull, the skull being able to move independently of the body, the sharp teeth and its general appearance are all specific to the alligators. In appearance, the animal IS IDENTICAL TO THE ALLIGATOR SINANSIS SPECIES LIVING IN today’s China.
* Indeed, one can see the fraud here from the account of the artist involved in the reconstruction of Tiktaalik Roseae. In reconstructing the fossil, the artist in question explicitly states that HE TOTALLY INVENTED THE CREATURE THROUGH THE POWER OF HIS IMAGINATION.
* Furthermore, the same artist stated that he determined the tissues of the animal in question and had no qualms about stating that a great deal of speculation was needed in order to produce a living appearance from a single fossil remain. (You can watch a video film on the subject here)
* As we have seen, it is not at all hard for a Darwinist artist under the influence of evolution to turn a skull with entirely alligator characteristics into a very strange-looking, false transitional form. The Tiktaalik Roseae deception that has been going on for so many years has been seen by millions by means of this simple deceptive technique.
* Some people, lacking any great knowledge of the subject, may fall into the error of thinking that Darwinists behave scientifically, that an intermediate fossil has genuinely been found and that what is on display is what the animal really looked like. The fact is, however, that all that they have is an alligator skull, bones and fin fragments belonging to fish and other life forms discovered nearby the skull, and the power of imagination of an artist guided by tall tales of evolution. To sum up, Darwinists have deceived people yet again.
* Tiktaalik Roseaeis a false transitional fossil brought to the fore by Darwinists out of an urgent need at a time when they are in the worst despair and have begun being defeated. Just as with the Ida, Ardiand Austrolapithecus Sediba deceptions, which have recently visited such terrible humiliation on Darwinists.
* In fact,Tiktaalik Roseae is a perfect species of alligator, examples of which are still alive today. It lived 375 million years ago AND IS TOTALLY IDENTICAL TO THE LIVING SPECIES OF ALLIGATOR.
* This life form is in fact A LIVING FOSSIL THAT COMPLETELY DEMOLISHES DARWINISM.
* So long as Darwinist speculation persists we will of course continue to issue clarifications regarding their intermediate fossil frauds. But the real issue is that Darwinists HAVE STILL NOT BEEN ABLE TO ACCOUNT FOR HOW A SINGLE PROTEIN MIGHT HAVE EMERGED SPONTANEOUSLY. Evolution collapses right at the phase of the very beginning of life.
* It is truly humiliating for Darwinists to offer deceptive accounts of a living thing whose fins turned into legs WHILE THEY ARE UNABLE TO EXPLAIN HOW A SINGLE PROTEIN MIGHT HAVE COME INTO EXISTENCE, WHEN THEY HAVE BEEN DEFEATED AT THE VERY BEGINNING OF LIFE.
* More furore over yet another Darwinist deception has now blown up. But the deception has been completely exposed in all respects. Darwinists are left with no way out. Whenever they come up with a deception, that deception will inevitably be crushed. And we would once again remind the public that they are left speechless by even a single protein.
* This is an immutable law of Allah. Our Lord reveals in one verse how falsehood will always be defeated:
Rather 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)
THE PULLING MOTION THAT FACILITATES BIRTH
The pains of labor drove her to the trunk of a date-palm. She said, “Oh if only I had died before this time and was something discarded and forgotten!”
A voice called out to her from under her, “Do not grieve! Your Lord has placed a small stream at your feet. Shake the trunk of the palm towards you and fresh, ripe dates will drop down onto you.” (Surah Maryam, 23-25)
Modern-day medicine shows that pulling an object facilitates the baby’s downward passage through the birth canal. The muscles used during pulling are the same as those that propel the baby outside the womb. Various methods are employed to achieve this, such as pulling on a cord suspended from the ceiling or on arms attached to the two sides of the bed or else holding onto and squeezing someone’s hand.1
A U-shaped bar, known as a "squat bar," mounted onto the bed during labor is used for that end. Pulling on this bar facilitates the baby’s leaving the womb, shortens the length of the birth canal, widens the mouth of the womb and reduced the need for many other devices and techniques during labor.2
This bar helps the mother’s squatting motions as she pulls herself up and down on it. It also means the mother remains immobile as the baby emerges.3 In this position, the muscles needed to move the baby down the birth canal expend the minimum amount of energy. In addition, with the expansion of the pelvic bone, 30% more room is made available for the baby to pass through. With the expansion and pulling motion, the body’s propulsive force is raised to the highest level and the baby is able to move smoothly during the birth process.4
There is great wisdom in the way that, by means of Allah’s angels, Hazrat Maryam shook the branches of the date-palm tree toward her. The Arabic word “Wahuzzee” means “to shake fast, to move or to rock.” In addition to dates facilitating birth and having nutritious poperties, pulling the branches toward one to shake them and then letting them pull back in another movement that facilitates birth. This technique, applied in our own day, is one of the proofs that Allah supported Hazrat Maryam with His compassion and that the Qur’an is the word of our Lord, the Omniscient.

The intermediate-form fossils sought by evolutionists for so many years have never been found. Yet every day brings with it new fossils revealing the fact of Creation. One example of this is the fossilized zebra skull pictured, whose tooth and jaw structure is identical to those of zebras living today, once again confirming that the theory of evolution is a grave deception and that God has created all living things.
Islamic countries have to unite their strengths
What He Said
Ekin TV, 12 February 2009
Adnan Oktar: Actually this is a religious duty; the Turkish-Islamic Union is a religious duty. And the division of Muslims is unlawful and uniting is a religious duty. For example, why would we break up from Azerbaijan, from Turkestan, FROM SYRIA, FROM IRAQ?... There is a master of everything right, for example, there is a specialist mixing the dough and there is the hammersmith for iron. There is a master of leadership. This is the Turkish people. Turkey is the leader country in the Turkish-Islamic world. And the leader always has to take up his position openly. If there is a search for a leader, then this is a mischief, leads to conflict. However the leader is out in the open and this is Turkey’s right. We have the Holy relics. We have the experience. Praise be to Allah, we have a very God-fearing, educated and great, clear-sighted staff. We are a very reasonable nation. We are a conservative, merciful, compassionate, enduring nation, and we enjoy service and people’s happiness. Still wherever we go to, if you pay attention, we strive for peace and reunification. They call for us wherever we go and ask for peacemaking. For example, Israel calls for us, SYRIA COMES AND CALLS FOR US, ALGERIA COMES AND CALLS FOR US. WHY DO THEY CALL US? Because they know that we are the natural leader. Of course then we will say that Turkey should be the head. Turkey should be the leader. Turkic states have been artificially divided. We are a family, and this is family job. Do something about it as a family, do something about the Turkish-Islamic Union. Of course, we will unite with the Turkish realm, with our brothers, with our family, and embrace our family in this grand Islamic realm and protect them.
Turkiye, 16 June 2010
Mr. Huseyin Aksu’s article dated June 16, 2010:
“This situation has to change, Islamic countries should spend their wealth for their country’s education, educated human source, technology and development, and not direct it to western banks. The hostility among Islamic countries should completely end, there should be cooperation and interdepence. This can be achieved in the leadership of Turkey, due to its heritage and experience. The latest events may be the glad tidings of this development.”
The Qur'an's 113 surahs begin with the name of Allah, The All-Merciful and Most Merciful. Believers are constantly aware of this name's manifestations, because it encompasses the universe and embraces each believer from birth to death, in sickness and health, weakness and strength, as well as permeates the matchless beauty of all animate and inanimate beings. The divine mercy, compassion, love, help, protection, grace and forgiveness of Allah toward all humans is one of the most beautiful manifestations of our Lord. The manifestations of this name deepens the way in which believers view the universe and all living things and adhere to the Qur'an's moral code. For this reason, when Muslims begin to read the Qur'an, practice the morality Qur'an tells and communicate it to others, advise other believers, and think about why the universe was created, they should breathe the most beautiful names of Allah in their spirits. To comprehend the beauty, contentment, well-being and blessing in these peerless names of our Creator, and to be aware of their sovereignty in Islam, is an important step toward deepening one's faith and coming to know Allah through His most beautiful names.
