If My slaves ask you about Me, I am near. I answer the call of the caller when he calls on Me. They should therefore respond to Me and believe in Me so that hopefully they will be rightly guided. (Surat al-Baqara, 186)
Whoever obeys me, obeys Allah, and whoever disobeys me, disobeys Allah, and whoever obeys the ruler I appoint, obeys me, and whoever disobeys him, disobeys me. (Bukhari)
People grow arrogant despite their helplessness
Allah has created human body with great artistry. All of the spectacular physical characteristics, such as the skeleton system that enables us to move easily, circular system that feeds 100 million cells one by one, blood that carries the oxygen, heart that makes the blood run through the blood vessels and reach every cell, liver that performs 500 different chemical activities in one cell and hundreds of other systems with countless details, are given to people by Allah in order for them to live in comfort. Cells, which make up the body and are too small to be seen with the naked eye, the hormones and enzymes produced by these cells, and hundreds of thousands of details like these are in complete harmony with one another, and each one has miraculous features that make life possible for a human being. Each of these perfectly run systems move with a mighty intelligence. This superior intelligence is the Creator of the universe, the Almighty, All-Wise Allah.
However, Allah, Who creates everything that we see and do not see with the naked eye, with a unique and sublime artistry, has created several weaknesses for the human body. Allah has created all these weaknesses with a special Wisdom, as He also has the power to create without them. Likewise, there are many reasons for the human body to have been created so helpless and weak.
Being mortal is one of the biggest weaknesses of a person. Hunger, sickness, sleep, the need to rest, being a creature influenced by the heat and cold, to be beaten by the smallest microbe and not being able to endure a common cold, makes one a very helpless being. Most of the time, people are obliged to use medicine to get better in the face of a disease, as from childhood. Especially in later ages, the need for using medicine increases. Each and every corner of the world is full of pharmacies, hospitals and health institutions. And this is a fact that clearly demonstrates the weakness of a human being.
No doubt death, like disease, is created specially to show how short and temporary the life of this world is. People come to this world to be tested and weaknesses establish the way to be tested in the life of this world. All of these are a means to realize the shortcomings of this world and head for the Hereafter as one’s true adobe.
However, some people become arrogant and boastful as if they do not possess these weaknesses. Even though people are helpless beings who could easily fall down and become permanently incapacitated or catch a serious disease through a cell getting deteriorated, they behave in an arrogant way in an attempt to show themselves as strong and superior. Yet they are weak beings just like anyone else. However, they become ridiculous by acting like they are not. This is because everyone else do realize how weak he or she actually is.
One of the most offending subjects for these people is death. They do not like to be reminded of death. They accuse people who talk about death with predicting the worst, and immediately try to silence them. Because death is a subject, which directly reminds them how helpless they really are. However death comes no matter what and in a time when they don’t expect it. Allah reveals in the Qur’an how such people try to hide their regrets when the Day of Judgment comes:
If every self that did wrong possessed everything on earth, it would offer it as a ransom. They will show remorse when they see the punishment. Everything will be decided between them justly. They will not be wronged. (Surah Yunus, 54)
In the same way, getting sick also offends such people. They feel humiliated and think that people will think less of them because of this. But they never give up their pride and egoism, and continue to behave in an arrogant and insensitive way, as so they are on deathbed. They do not accept their helplessness as a servant and continue their arrogance until the day they die. Allah reveals the condition of these people in the following verses:
On the Day when legs are bared and they are called on to prostrate, they will not be able to do so. Their eyes will be downcast, darkened by debasement; for they were called on to prostrate when they were in full possession of their faculties. So leave anyone who denies this discourse to me! We will lead them, step by step, into destruction from where they do not know. I will allow them more time. My subterfuge is sure. (Surat Al-Qalam, 42-45)
‘Enter the gates of Hell, remaining in it timelessly, for ever. How evil is the abode of the arrogant!’ (Surat An-Nahl, 29)
Muslims are aware of their weaknesses and therefore do not have the feelings of arrogance and pride. They know that Allah creates everything with Wisdom, turn to Him and pray for His help. This attitude of Muslims is revealed in the Qur’an in the following verse:
Those who remember Allah, standing, sitting and lying on their sides, and reflect on the creation of the heavens and the earth: ‘Our Lord, You have not created this for nothing. Glory be to You! So safeguard us from the punishment of the Fire. Our Lord, those You cast into the Fire, You have indeed disgraced. The wrongdoers will have no helpers. Our Lord, we heard a caller calling us to belief: “Believe in your Lord!” and we believed. Our Lord, forgive us our wrong actions, erase our bad actions from us and take us back to You with those who are truly good. (Surah Al ‘Imran, 191-193)
The Heat Technology of the Megapode Bird
A bird called the "megapode" living in the Pacific islands prepares an interesting "incubation machine" for its offspring.
During the summer season, the female megapode lays one egg every six days. However, the eggs of the megapode are relatively big compared to its size, being almost as big as an ostrich egg. For this reason, the female megapode can only incubate one egg. Therefore, every six days, the new hatched eggs are in danger of dying due to lack of heat. However, this is not a problem for the megapode, because the male megapode is created with the skill to manufacture an incubation machine by using the most abundant materials in nature, that is, sand and earth.
For this purpose, six months before the spawning season comes, the male megapode starts to dig a hole 5 meters in diameter and 1 meter in depth with its gigantic claws. Then, it fills the hole with wet weed and leaves. The main purpose is to use the heat produced by the bacteria in decaying plants to warm the eggs.
However, additional arrangements have to be made for this process to take place. The actual reason why plants decay and release heat is the funnel-shaped hole made by the megapode in the pile of plants. This hole enables rainwater to leak into the nest and keep the organic substances wet. Because of the damp, decay takes place in the plants beneath the sand, and heat is released. Soon before spring, the drought season for Australia starts, and the male begins to air the decayed plant layer. This is to maintain the heat balance. The female bird occasionally visits the hole and checks whether the male is working or not. Finally, the female lays eggs on the sand over the decayed plants.
A Sensitive Thermometer: The Male Megapode
For the development of offspring in the "incubation machine", the temperature should be kept constant at 91.4 F. In order to achieve this, the male megapode regularly measures the temperature of the sand with its beak, which is as sensitive as a thermometer. If necessary, it opens ventilation holes to reduce the temperature. It is so much so that if a few handfuls of earth are thrown on the sand, the male megapode immediately removes the extra sand with its feet and prevents even the slightest change in temperature. The offspring come into the world under such protective measures. The newly born are so developed that they can fly just a few hours after they pop out of their eggs.
How have these creatures accomplished such a job for millions of years which even men could hardly do? Since we know that animals have no conscious rational intellect as people do, the only explanation of this event is that this creature is specially "programmed" for this task, and originally created able to do it. Otherwise, it is impossible to explain how it could prepare for this job six months in advance, or know the nature of this complex chemical process. Why it embarks on such a difficult task to protect the eggs is another question. The only answer is hidden in the desire to reproduce and protect the young.
Cunning and opportunism: a behavioral defect among people in the religion of ignorance
Everything in the heavens and everything in Earth belongs to Him. He is the Most High, the All-Glorious . ( Surat ash-Shura, 42:4)
Allah's might and grandeur is surely beyond humanity's grasp. Yet, within the limits of their wisdom, people can still see and grasp His might. Indeed, the entire universe abounds with countless examples that indicate His greatness. A closer look at our own planet will make people feel His sublimity.
The heavens carrying clouds that weigh many tons, mountains rising thousands of meters in the air, oceans harboring millions of living beings, a lightening flash and the noise of thunder following it, and billions of living beings that have submitted to Allah—all of these and countless other details are clear signs of Allah's existence.
To have a better grasp of our Lord's grandeur, let's move beyond the limits of our world and think: We live in an unbounded space, the universe, which contains billions of galaxies with countless billions of stars. We live in one of these galaxies on a planet called Earth, which rotates about its axis at a velocity of about 1.670 kilometers an hour. Just thinking on these vast figures make us realize that our existence in the universe is as insignificant as the existence of a dust particle on Earth.
As this example also reveals, people given to sincere contemplation can grasp the majesty of their Lord, Who creates billions of galaxies and holds all of them in His hand. In one verse, Allah informs us about His beautiful names:
Allah, there is no deity but Him, the Living, the Self-Sustaining. He is not subject to drowsiness or sleep. Everything in the heavens and Earth belongs to Him. Who can intercede with Him except by His permission? He knows what is before them and what is behind them, but they cannot grasp any of His knowledge, except for what He wills. His Footstool encompasses the heavens and Earth, and their preservation does not tire Him. He is the Most High, the All-Glorious. ( Surat al-Baqara, 2:255)
Hazrat Mahdi's (as) thighs will be broad
Since Hazrat Mahdi (as) will have a wide stomach, his thighs will naturally be broad, as well.
His [Hazrat Mahdi’s (as)] brow is open... his stomach large, and the space between his thighs is open. ... (Mari’ bin Yusuf Karami Hanbali, Fawaid Fawaid al-Fikr fil Mahdi al-Montazar, p. 13)
THERE IS A SPACE BETWEEN HIS THIGHS... (Mar'i ibn Yusuf al-Maqdisi "Fera Idu Fevaidi'l Fiqr Fi'l Imam al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar)
Why Are Darwinists So Determined to Humiliate Themselves?
Why is it that Darwinists, already in a state of grave disappointment due to the collapse of their theory in recent years in particular, humiliate themselves in such a determined manner? Although all their trickery has been exposed and people have been made aware of how they were deceived by propaganda and demagoguery, though it has been shown, with supporting evidence, that not a single transitional form fossil exists, although 300 million fossils have eliminated the theory entirely and, most important of all, it has been revealed how they are unable to account for the formation of even a single protein, how is it they are able to keep raising the same old claims?
A Call to Darwinists Trying to Convince Themselves They Have Not Been Routed
Darwinists are in fact well aware of what is happening to them. They know full well that they have suffered a sure and comprehensive defeat. Yet they are merely representing a philosophy of “nothing has happened.” They are actually trying to convince themselves they have not been defeated, and moreover hope that others will also believe it.
But they are mistaken. No matter what their aims may be, Darwinists are humiliated so long as they stand up for their false theories. Darwinist publications had been trying to raise the issue that “we have a Homo habilis fossil.” The interesting thing is that Darwinists used to publish fossil skeletons discovered (or tiny bones they found) while seeking to give the impression, through misleading wording, that these were transitional forms, though they were not. The speculation about this fictitious fossil alleged to have been discovered in South Africa reveals the same futile and fraudulent policy pursued by Darwinists for the last 150 years. The propaganda is driven with news headlines adorned with the same false terminology: The imaginary fossil supposedly “sheds light on evolution,” “is the missing link sought for so long,” represents “the cradle of mankind” and will “rewrite human history”...
Darwinist publications pictured the fictitious life form like this, even though they had never even seen its fossil remains. This picture is by itself evidence of the deceptive dimensions that Darwinist propaganda can assume
It will be remembered that statements like these were also employed years ago in the context of
- Piltdown man, which was subsequently exposed as a shocking scientific fraud,
- Nebraska man, dreamed up on the basis of a single pig’s tooth,
- the Turkana Boy, subsequently revealed to be a fully fledged human being, albeit a child,
- Lucy, which even Darwinist publications eventually admitted to be nothing more than a monkey,
- Ida, which was shamelessly heralded as the most important ancestor of man, despite being clearly and blatantly just a lemur, and all the speculations regarding which Darwinists had to retract and apologize for,
- and finally Ardi, which they again had to apologize for, saying “sorry, our mistake; it is just a monkey,” after a computer animation showing it supposedly walking upright had been broadcast everywhere.
To be more accurate, every fossil that Darwinists have tried to herald with such fanfare has merely disappointed them in the end. They have also shown people how easily, persistently, shamelessly and wickedly Darwinists have been able to impose these frauds.
It is really astonishing that Darwinists are still humiliating themselves by employing these same methods. If a fraud is being espoused where there is no scientific evidence, then it is impossible for anything other than humiliation and demagogic statements to result.
The Absence of a Single Transitional Fossil Spells the End of Darwinism
There are more than 300 million fossils in existence today. Not a single one is a transitional form. There is not a trace of all the imaginary transitional forms that must have existed in their billions or even trillions, according to Darwinists. This fossil, like Ida, Ardi and all the other fossils that have been the subject of such speculation, is merely being used for making a furore, which is all Darwinists have left. The only reason why no detail has been provided about the fossil is either that it does not exist or merely belongs to a monkey. Indeed, in the event that any information is provided about this imaginary fossil, by Allah’s leave, the requisite scientific response will certainly be forthcoming, as always. It has always been an easy matter to expose fraud and reveal the true scientific evidence. Since evolution never happened, the only thing to be done with this fossil is to expose the fraudulent speculation surrounding it and reveal the genuine scientific evidence concerning it. The way the works of Harun Yahya have rebutted Darwinism and inflicted a comprehensive and stunning global defeat on Darwinists has happened, by Allah’s leave, by means of this definitive, certain and indisputable scientific evidence.
Since no detail has been provided about this fossil, alleged to be 2 million years old and since it is alleged to belong to Homo habilis, then it is appropriate to concentrate on the fraudulent nature of Homo habilis and to remind readers that these living things are nothing more than extinct species of monkey. We have already written comprehensively and demolished the claims regarding Homo habilis. You can access these article HERE and HERE (vide: Homo Habilis section).
UNDERGROUND ENERGY RESOURCES: PETROL
Petrol, the one of the most important sources of energy, was first referred to by that name in a book titled De Re Metallica (On the Nature of Minerals), published in 1556 by the German Georgius Agricola. There are also important references to this important energy resource, named only many hundreds of years later, in the Qur’an. (Allah knows the truth.)
The letters that comprise the word “petrol” appear side by side in only one verse of the Qur’an. The Arabic words "fee thulumati al-ardi" in verse 59 of Surat al-An’am, meaning “the darkness of the earth,” appear in the same verse and suggest the subterranean formation of petrol.
.... He knows everything in the land and sea. No leaf falls without His knowing it. There is no seed in the darkness of the earth, and nothing moist or dry which is not in a Clear Book. (Surat al-An’am, 59)
The word petrol, which began being used hundreds of years after the revelation of the Qur’an, is written or read pretty much the same in different languages, such as Turkish, English and Arabic…
* There is no letter "P" in Arabic, the letter "Be" being used as its equivalent.
When scientists describe how petrol is formed, they refer to it emerging after a long period of time from plant and animal remains. Another verse of the Qur’an that suggests this reads:
He Who brings forth green pasture, then makes it blackened stubble. (Surat al-A’la, 4-5)
(For a more detailed account, see Harun Yahya, Allah's Miracles in the Qur’an, Vol. 1, 8th edition, July 2006)
Age: 50 million years
Location: Green River Formation, Utah, USA
The fossil findings that most clearly refute the idea of plant evolution are those belonging to flowering plants. These angiosperms—to give them their biological definition—are divided into 43 separate families, each one of which emerges suddenly in the fossil record with no trace of any primitive "intermediate form" behind it.
This fact was realized in the 19th century, and Darwin described the origin of angiosperms as "an abominable mystery". In his book Palaeobiology of Angiosperm Origins, the evolutionist paleobotanist Norman F. Hughes makes the following admission:
". . . the failure to find a satisfactory explanation has persisted, and many botanists have concluded that the problem is not capable of solution, by use of fossil evidence." (N. F. Hughes, Palaeobiology of Angiosperm Origins: Problems of Mesozoic Seed-Plant Evolution, Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1976, pp. 1-2))
This admission means that no fossil capable of being represented as proof of plant evolution has been found. And neither is it possible for any to be discovered in the future. As the 50-million-year-old sumac fossil pictured here shows, plants did not evolve, but were created.
Ali Bardakoglu: The reason for the problems is lovelessness
What He Said
Islam Channel, June 21st, 2008
Adnan Oktar: Yes there is an unnecessary turmoil in the world. The world is quite big. It is enough for whole human nation in order for solving the shelter and the food problems. The only problem is love. I see a world without love. The love has to prevail all around the world as soon as possible. In order to fulfill that having a religious society is essential.
Dem TV, October 9th, 2009
Adnan Oktar: The Darwinists has done the biggest evil to the society by taking the love away from human nation. There is no love in humans' home, everyone's eyes are looking down when seeing each other on the streets. I mean, the otherwise is seldom, everyone is scared of each other, and this lovelessness is everywhere in the world, i mean, lovelessness runs out of their eyes. People walk around with meaningless and flat looks. However, there should have been love, passion, affection, brotherhood, and enthusiasm on their looks, but there is none. See, Darwinism took those away from humans. Now, Mahdi (as) will bring those back to humans, and so will Jesus (as). They will bring the real justice, love, mercy, compassion and affection.

Ali Bardakoglu: One of the reasons for the problems is the lovelessness
The Chief of Religious Affairs Directorate, Prof. Dr. Ali Bardakoglu: In his visit to Osman Baydemir,the Mayor of the City of Diyarbakır, Dr. Bardakoglu said that " THE FIRST WE HAVE TO GET RID OF THE LACK OF LOVE IN OUR HEARTHS. THE SUFFERING COMES FROM THIS LOVELESSNESS. "
There are more than 10,000 species of birds on Earth, each of which possesses its own unique features. Hawks have very sharp eyes, broad wings and pointed talons. Plovers, weighing just a few hundred grams, flap their wings for 88 hours non-stop on the journey of 4,000 kilometers (2,485 miles) that they make every winter, crossing the ocean without mishap. With their ability to imitate sounds including human speech, parrots are among the cleverest of living things. Although anatomy of their mouths is wholly different—they have no teeth or lips, for instance—they are able to produce sounds very similar to those they hear. With their long beaks, the hummingbirds—the smallest known species of birds—can feed on flower nectar and the small insects they find inside flowers. In order to feed, they needs to hover in the air in front of the flower, and with its specially created features, they are the only species of bird able to do so. Jays bury the bonito fish they collect for later use. With their powerful memories, they are able to find and extract these fish even after nine months have passed, in forests where every tree resembles every other.
The way that birds show devoted behavior towards their young is also most striking. Some birds construct highly intricate nests, taking account of a great many factors during their construction. Birds living by the seashore, for example, build nests that cannot be flooded, using the appropriate materials for this. They even calculate how their future young should come to no harm in the event that water levels rise. Some marsh-dwelling birds build nests with high walls so that their eggs cannot be blown out by the wind.
How are such different types of nests, intelligent behavior and altruism, whose variety would fill many volumes, possible for these creatures, which are totally without reason or training?
It is impossible for them to have gradually developed the features they possess, because they could not have survived during the intermediate stages of any such process. Indeed, no creature has ever grown to perfection in stages, as evolutionists would have us believe. On the contrary, all different living groups have existed in their current perfect states ever since they first appeared in the Earth's geological strata.
This is scientific evidence that birds too were created, and this evidence represents a truth taught to human beings in the Qur'an: it is Allah, the Creator of all things, Who created these creatures with all the features they possess and the systems appropriate to them.
In verses, Allah reveals His dominion over the living world:
“. . . There is no creature He does not hold by the forelock.” (Surah Hud, 56)
