He is Allah – the Creator, the Maker, the Giver of Form. To Him belong the Most Beautiful Names.Everything in the heavens and earth glorifies Him.He is the Almighty, the All-Wise. (Surat al-Hashr, 24)
Narrated Jarir bin ‘Abdullah: Allah’s Messenger said, “He who is deprived of kindness and gentleness is, in fact, deprived of all good.” (Muslim)
The world can only be a livable place as long as there is submission to Allah's protection
At any moment, the world in which we are living continues its existence through the protection of its numerous stabilities of which we are aware and unaware. Some of these delicate stabilities are the rotation speed of the galaxies, the stars and the planets, their heat and density, the mass and the expansion speed of the universe, the sustenance cycle, the aquatic cycle, and the nitrogen cycle. In order for biotic and a biotic creatures to keep up, these stabilities are bounded with the process of extremely flawless and spectacular delicate accounts at any moment. Having a problem in the function of, or the deficiency of, even, one of these numerous chains of systems that are in an excellent harmony, would cause unthinkable impediments. So much so that, these impediments would perish the life on earth.
However, some people, who are deceived by the hustle and bustle of daily life, continue their lives almost without knowing these miraculous stabilities. Moreover, they never think that their own life is bounded with an extraordinarily certain process of these delicately harmonious systems. These people are only interested in their own little world, and they only care about the matters related to their little world; for example, small matters that one thinks about are the incidents that take place at work or school, or the relationships between family members and friends, or their own personal interests and issues . However, there are innumerable details around them that they need to explore.
After investigating these realities, and facing the reality of these extremely delicate stabilities, such as the whole universe's massive system , some people start having anxiety and fear. For example, they start living with the fear and the anxiety of being caught by a sudden earthquake or being struck by lightning. Of course, this is also wrong behavior. The true behavior is to see the reality that all of these delicate stabilities are totally in the control of Allah.
Thermostat in the Body
Apart from toxins, red blood cells, vitamins and other substances, blood also carries heat, a by-product of energy generation in the cells. Distributing and balancing body heat in accordance with the outside temperature is vitally important. If there were no heat distribution system in our bodies, our arms would overheat and the rest of the body would be cool when the arm muscles are used, which would greatly damage the metabolism. This is why heat is evenly distributed throughout the body, which is facilitated solely by the circulatory system. In decreasing the body-heat that is distributed all over the body, the perspiration system is activated. In addition, blood vessels enlarge under the skin, enabling excess heat in the blood to be transmitted to the outside air. This is why when we run or do other high-energy activities, our faces become red. Blood circulation is as responsible in preservation of the body heat as in cooling. In colder temperatures, the blood vessels under our skin shrink, which serves to reduce the amount of blood in the area where heat escape is most probable and hence to keep cooling to a minimum. The reason for a person's face turning white when cold is the precaution that the body automatically takes. (R. Von Bredow, Geo, November 1997.)
Everything taking place in the blood is extremely complicated and intertwined. Everything has been created flawlessly down to the smallest detail. In fact, there is such a wonderfully intricate balance in the bloodstream that the smallest breakdown could potentially cause very serious complications. Blood has been created with all its necessary properties by the One Creator in a moment. This Creator, the owner of superior knowledge and power, is God:
Your god is God alone, there is no god but Him. He encompasses all things in His knowledge. (Surah Ta Ha: 98)
The mutual love of the people of paradise
Say: “ Allah is a sufficient witness between me and you. He is certainly aware of and sees His servants.” ( Surat al-Isra', 17:96)
Allah has no beginning and no end, is the sole absolute Being, and is not bound by such human concepts as time or space. Therefore, everything that ever happens, regardless of whether it happened in the past, the present, or the future, are the same in—and are fully known to—His Sight.
He knows everything, whether it is done in secret or in public, in darkness or in light, while alone or while in a crowd. Being ignorant, people assume that what they do at night might conceal their sins and hide them as well. But such hopes are futile, for the Qur'an states:
Do you not see that Allah knows what is in the heavens and on Earth? Three men cannot confer together secretly without Him being the fourth, or five without Him being the sixth, or fewer than that or more without Him being with them wherever they are. Then He will inform them on the Day of Rising of what they did. Allah has knowledge of all things. ( Surat al-Mujadala, 58:7)
Allah is fully knowledgeable of everyone's intentions, thoughts, and deeds at every one moment. Each of us will be called to account for all of these on the Day of Judgment. People who deny these truths will understand their mistake on the Day of Judgment. As “On the Day Allah raises up all of them together, He will inform them of what they did. Allah has recorded it while they have forgotten it. Allah is a Witness of all things” ( Surat al-Mujadala, 58:6) maintains, in the Hereafter we will be repaid for each one of our deeds:
You do not engage in any matter, recite any of the Qur'an, or do any action without Our witnessing you while you are occupied with it. Not even the smallest speck eludes your Lord, either on Earth or in heaven. Nor is there anything smaller than that, or larger, which is not in a Clear Book. (Surah Yunus, 10:61)
But Allah bears witness to what He has sent down to you. He has sent it down with His knowledge. The angels bear witness as well. And Allah suffices as a Witness. ( Surat an-Nisa', 4:166)
Whether We show you something of what We have promised them or take you back to Us, they will still return to Us. Then Allah will be witness against what they are doing. (Surah Yunus, 10:46)
We will show them Our Signs on the horizon and within themselves until it is clear to them that it is the truth. Is it not enough for your Lord that He is a witness of everything? (Surah Fussilat, 41:53)
Hazrat Mahdi (as)'s whole body will be wide.
Among the information delivered by our Prophet (saas) about Hazrat Mahdi (as), who is the Imam of the End Times and owner of the time, the physical features of Hazrat Mahdi (as) are also told in great details. One of these features is the fact that Hazrat Mahdi (as) has a wide stomach and wide shoulders just like our Prophet (saas). In the hadith above it is pointed out that Hazrat Mahdi (as) is broad shouldered and has a wide stomach. Besides it is also understood from the hadith that Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) eyebrows are close to one another, that he walks fast, meaning He has a lively and restless creation.
The Invalidity Of The Claim That Mutations Miraculously Give Rise To Evolution
Darwinists have long claimed that mutations have miraculous effects. It is a scientific fact by now known to the whole world that mutations only harm the living organism, that they can never endow living things with any new information and that, on the contrary, they destroy information that already exists. The claim that mutations have an evolutionary effect, the most important subject to which Darwinists have now pinned their hopes, has been totally discredited with the scientific understanding of the facts in question. The evidence is as follows:
· Mutations are breaks or displacements in a living thing’s genetic code, or DNA, as a result of radiation or chemical effects. Therefore they ONLY DAMAGE DNA.
· 99% of mutations are harmful and 1% have no effect. The changes caused by mutations can only be of the kind suffered by people at Hiroshima, Nagasaki or Chernobyl; in other words, death, deformation and disease.
· Mutations are random effects. As a result of mutations the parts making up the genetic code are torn out and destroyed, damaged or moved to different parts of the DNA. But mutations never add any new information to DNA. Therefore, mutations can never bestow new information on an organism. All speculation to such effect is mere deception.
· For the same reasons, the claim that living things undergo changes caused by mutations and turned into different life forms with completely different physiologies is also totally deceptive. As well as having harmful effects, mutations have no ability to add a life form any new information that does not already exist.
· Darwinists have for years been raising and performing mutation experiments on fruit flies to try and prove their claims that mutations cause evolution. They have subjected these creatures to all kinds of mutations for many years. But NOT EVEN ONE SINGLE USEFUL MUTATION HAS EVER BEEN OBSERVED.
The Darwinist Gordon Rattray Taylor makes the following admission on the subject:
It is a striking, but not much mentioned fact that, though geneticists have been breeding fruit-flies for sixty years or more in labs all around the world—flies which produce a new generation every eleven days—THEY HAVE NEVER YET SEEN THE EMERGENCE OF A NEW SPECIES OR EVEN A NEW ENZYME.[i]
· The fruit fly that Darwinists attempt to depict as evidence of useful mutation has an extra pair of wings due to being subjected to mutation, BUT IT HAS ENTIRELY LOST THE ABILITY TO FLY; in other words, it is deformed. No new data transfer has taken place in the animal, which has lost the power of flight. Structures already existing in it have merely been repeated, but these have damaged its flight muscles as they emerged, thus leaving the animal functionless.
The biologist Michael Pitman expresses the failure of the experiments on fruit flies thus:
Many geneticists have subjected generations of fruit flies to extreme conditions of heat, cold, light, dark, and treatment by chemicals and radiation. All sorts of mutations, practically all trivial or positively deleterious, have been produced. Man-made evolution? Not really: Few of the geneticists’ monsters could have survived outside the bottles they were bred in. In practice, mutants die or are sterile.[ii]
Cases described as “examples of mutation” in medical text books consist of diseases such as mongolism, Down’s syndrome, albinism, dwarfism, cancer etc.
Prof. Walter L. Starkey from the Ohio State University describes the invalidity of the claims about mutations as follows:
Do you think it would be wise for you to spend hours near X-ray machine, or inside of a nuclear power plant? Would it be wise for you to go to Chernobyl, in Russia, where a nuclear power plant exploded? Should we actively try to destroy the ozone layer that shields us from radiation? If such radiations are likely to cause you to evolve, and develop new beneficial futures, then you should seek to be bombarded as much as possible by these sources of radiation. Maybe you could get a new eye in the back of your head. In reality, if you are smart, you will avoid such radiations, because they are much more likely to damage you than to improve you. [iii]

THE WORD "PHARAOH" IN THE QUR'AN
In the Old Testament, the Egyptian ruler during the period of Prophet Ibrahim (as) and Prophet Yusuf (as) are named "Pharaoh." However, this title was actually employed after the eras in which these two Prophets lived.
While addressing the Egyptian ruler at the time of Prophet Yusuf (as), the word "Al-Malik" in Arabic is used in the Qur'an: It refers to a ruler, king or sultan:
The King said, 'Bring him to me straight away!'. (Surah Yusuf: 50)
The ruler of Egypt in the time of the Prophet Musa (as) is referred to as "Pharaoh." This distinction in the Qur'an is not made in the Old and New Testaments nor by Jewish historians. In the Bible, the word "Pharaoh" is used, in every reference to an Egyptian monarch. On the other hand, the Qur'an is far more concise and accurate in the terminology it employs.
The use of the word "Pharaoh" in Egyptian history belongs only to the late period. This particular title began to be employed in the 14th century B.C., during the reign of Amenhotep IV. The Prophet Yusuf (as) lived at least 200 years before that time.1
The Encyclopaedia Britannica says that the word "Pharaoh" was a title of respect used from the New Kingdom (beginning with the 18th dynasty; B.C. 1539-1292) until the 22nd dynasty (B.C. 945-730), after which this term of address became the title of the king. Further information on this subject comes from the Academic American Encyclopaedia, which states that the title of Pharaoh began to be used in the New Kingdom.
In this way We give you news of what has gone before and We have given you a reminder direct from Us. Those who turn away from it will bear a heavy burden on the Day of Rising.
(Surah Ta Ha: 99-100)
As we have seen, the use of the word "Pharaoh" dates from a specific period in history. For that reason, the fact that the Qur'an distinguishes between the different Egyptian titles in different Egyptian eras is yet another proof that the Qur'an is Allah's Word.

Age: 144-65 million years
Location: Lower Greensand, Atherfield, Isle of Wight, United Kingdom
There is no difference between this lobster, which lived tens of millions of years ago, and those that are still alive today. This deals a devastating blow to the theory of evolution. The fossil pictured here of a lobster from the Cretaceous period (between 144 and 65 million years ago) proves that the claims of evolutionists with regard to natural history are completely untenable.
Creatures did not evolve; they are created by God, Lord of the worlds.
The Ottoman spirit brought 7 leaders together
What He Said
Azerbaycan Novoye Vremya, October 6- 2008
Adnan Oktar: The Balkans have always been Ottoman soil until the inlands of Italy. Those places in the vicinity of Italy, they are all the lands of Ottoman. There are signs of Ottomans, beauty of Ottomans everywhere. Those places will be a city of peace and peace territories in Turkish Islamic Union… Turkish Islamic Union just offers them abundance, plentifulness and peace. Turkish Islamic Union will offer peace and happiness to Bosnia, to Albania, everywhere inshaAllah.

The Ottoman spirit brought 7 leaders together
The 15th anniversary of Srebrenica Massacre - where 8 thousand Bosnians had been killed – became a peace summit. The “hostile brothers” of the Balkans came together with the joint venture Turkey started on the 24th of April.
As people who believe in God and follow His revelations, let us rally to a common formula - "faith". Let's love God, Who is our Creator and Lord, and follow His commands. And let us pray God to lead us to an even straighter path. When Muslims, Christians and Jews rally to a common formula this way; When they understand that they are friends not enemies, When they see that the real enemy is atheism and paganism, then the world will become a very different place.
Plants have an indispensable place in human life. With more than 500,000 species and an even greater number of varieties and hybrids, plants are a limitless resource placed at mankind’s disposal by Allah. They are the source of the fresh air we breathe, the food we consume to survive, and much of the energy we use. Plants are also the source of strikingly beautiful views, delightful scents and stunning colors.
Plants’ special photosynthetic factories turn light into food, constantly give off oxygen, cleanse the air and ensure ecological equilibrium. Their aesthetic features such as taste, scent and color, which appeal mainly to human beings, were created by Allah, and reveal His infinite knowledge, artistry, and compassion and affection for human beings. By examining photosynthesis, the characteristic feature of plants, this book will demonstrate the miracles that Allah performs in these living things.
