For example, in a society where communism is gaining ground, the duty of a Muslim is not to 'adapt communism to Islam.' This will produce no results beneficial to religion; on the contrary, it is a dead-end that will only serve communism's interests. The duty of a Muslim is to destroy communism as an idea and to put forward the truth of Islam in its place. In the same way, the duty of a Muslim in the face of Darwinism is not to try to 'adapt Darwinism to Islam.' It is rather to destroy that great lie and to proclaim the truth of creation.
All Muslims must act in this knowledge. They must support the ideological struggle against the theory of evolution, which is the basis of atheism and has deceived the world for 150 years.
The Qur'an has been under Allah's protection from the time it was first revealed to the present, and has undergone no corruption. It was sent down as an admonition and a warning to people; for the faithful, it is the source of healing, guidance and a mercy. Its words are the most noble, they distinguish right from wrong, and guide those who follow it to the true path.
Those who understand the divine wisdom of the Qur'an take it as their guide. Since they have accepted the verses of the Qur'an with their entire hearts, the morality expounded in it is always reflected in their speech. At every stage of their lives, whether formulating a decision, or speaking, or while offering an interpretation of something, they consistently use the Qur'an as their guide. Therefore, their every word, every decision, and every form of advice they are prepared to offer is in agreement with the Qur'an. Those who speak by using the Qur'an as their guide invariably participate in any conversation in the best way, because the verses of the Qur'an deconstruct and eradicate all errant forms of logic, bringing the truth to the light. Allah explains this with the following verse: "Rather We hurl the truth against falsehood and it cuts right through it and it vanishes clean away!…" (Surat al-Anbiya': 18)
Words spoken in accordance with the morality explained in the Qur'an are a healing and a mercy for the sincere. Those who listen to them, with the intention of profiting from its advice, or to derive its benefits or to discern its wisdom, find the truth, by way of these conversations-if Allah wills.
In addition, the speech of those who speak in conformity with the guidance of the Qur'an has achieved wisdom. Every example they employ, every point to which they draw attention, and every detail they stress, is effective and thought-provoking. They encourage the people they address to think honestly and sincerely, and to exercise their conscience. Since their speech is sincere, issuing from their hearts, and is in defense of the right, its power to influence is strong. Those who are able to evaluate what they hear according to their conscience can verify the truth of their statements with certainty.
Those who listen, but who are insincere, and do so with prejudice, do not wish to see the wisdom and truth of the words of the faithful, but try instead to distort them through calumny. Unable to grasp that it is the wisdom of verses of the Qur'an that has reinforced the believers' speech, they attempt to explain it away through ridiculous assumptions. The fact is, however, these effects are faith-induced, and easily accessible to all who conform to the Qur'an and accept it as his guide. However, this the unbelievers fail to understand.
A number of examples of what we are discussing have been provided in the Qur'an. For example, when confronted with the frankness and wisdom direct of the Prophet Muhammad (saas), the disbelievers and pagans were plunged into dismay. Within only a short time, large numbers were moved by the message of our Prophet (saas), and their obedience to him caused great consternation among the disbelievers. Because they could not understand the verses of the Qur'an, which imbued the statements of our Prophet (saas) with their wisdom and effectiveness, or rather, that they refused to accept it, they sought to foment false accusations against him, such as that he was a magician or merely a poet. In fact, as is the case with all human beings, it is Allah Who instilled in the Prophets the power of their speech. In the verses of the Qur'an Allah declared:
Your companion is not misguided or misled; nor does he speak from whim. It is nothing but Revelation revealed. (Surat an-Najm: 2-4)
As we can see in these verses, the words of our Prophet (saas) were not only extremely effective but imbued with wisdom, because he recited from the Qur'an, a book which is the word of Allah. The One Who imparted the faith and influence to the hearts of those who listened to his words and believe, was Allah. Those who fail to appreciate the greatness of Allah fall into a grave error, by vainly seeking to gain influence and wisdom by other means.
NOT MAKING EMPTY AND TRIVIAL STATEMENTS
Because those who do not believe in Allah think their lives are limited to the life of the world, they feel no need to make preparations for the everlasting existence they will lead in the next world. They do not reflect upon the way they behave, what good they do during their lifetimes, or what end they are approaching. In fact, every act, every word and every thought is recorded, and with these each will be reminded on the Day of Judgment. Every good and wise word uttered will be to a person's benefit in the afterlife, helping that person to gain Allah's approval, His mercy and His Paradise.
While those who do not ponder about the afterlife waste their time by faltering into empty words and embroidering them into conversations which are of no use to themselves or anyone else, the faithful pass every moment of their time in beneficial and wise conversation.
In the Qur'an, we are told about those who forget about the afterlife by wasting their words the following manner: "... Then leave them in their empty discourse, amusing themselves." (Surat al-An'am: 91)
The Muslims' careful avoidance of empty and useless words is expressed in another verse:
"When they hear worthless talk they turn away from it and say, 'We have our actions and you have your actions. Peace be upon you. We do not desire the company of the ignorant.' " (Surat al-Qasas: 55)
As to what words are empty and vain, Muslims use the Qur'an as their measure. Because they know that every moment they spend in the life of this world is dear, with regards to determining their lot in the afterlife, they take great care in order to avoid empty words by always first referring to their conscience. In a verse of the Qur'an, we are told that when they hear empty words they pass by honorably: "Those who do not bear false witness and who, when they pass by worthless talk, pass by with dignity" (Surat al-Furqan: 72)
Do not imagine that Allah will break His promise to His Messengers. Allah is the Almighty, the Lord of Retribution. (Surah Ibrahim, 14:47)
This name of Allah expresses that He will always triumph and that He can never be refuted, for only He has true power. Allah created the universe's order, all of its laws (both known and unknown), and all beings on Earth. In the face of Allah's infinite power, which clearly manifests itself in the universe, the feebleness of every created being and thing is obvious. All that is created can only exist, survive, and act if He commands so.
No doubt, this feeling of feebleness also holds true for humanity. No matter how well-off, strong, and powerful people may be, each person is weak and helpless in Allah's sight. No possessions, money, or status can protect them from Allah's punishment; only those who surrender to Him, live by His orders, and strive to earn His consent will be protected. In the Qur'an, Allah promises to grant superiority to His loyal servants.
Allah has written: "I will be victorious, I and My Messengers." Allah is Most Strong, Almighty. (Surah al-Mujadala, 58:21)
… and He has sent down the Furqan. Those who reject Allah's Signs will have a terrible punishment. Allah is Almighty, Lord of Retribution. (Surah 'Al Imran, 3:4)
Allah bears witness that there is no deity but Him, as do the angels and the people of knowledge, upholding justice. There is no deity but Him, the Almighty, the All-Wise. (Surah Al 'Imran, 3:18)
Do not be grieved by what they say. All might belongs to Allah. He is the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing. (Surah Yunus, 10:65)
A pertinent hadith of Prophet Muhammad (saas) relates:
A bedouin once said to the Prophet (saas): "Teach me something to say." The Prophet (saas) replied: "Say: 'There is no god but Allah, the One with no partner. Allah is the Greatest by far; much praise be to Him. The Lord of the Worlds be praised; and there is no power and no strength save in Allah the Almighty, the All-Wise.'" (Sahih Muslim)
HOW DOES THE QUR'AN DEFINE WRONGDOING?
The Qur'an classifies those people who refuse to worship Allah, despite being reminded by His signs, as "those who do wrong," as follows:
Who could do greater wrong than those who lie about Allah and deny the truth when it comes to them? Do the unbelievers not have a dwelling place in Hell? (Surat az-Zumar, 32)
Among the most significant signs of the erroneous path taken by these people is their inability to be grateful to Allah for His innumerable gifts and favors, as well as their lack of reflection on their weakness before His greatness. Besides drawing themselves to Hell by means of their erroneous character, they also call other people to the same evil conduct. Preventing others from living by the religion, they lead them to a great punishment both in this world and in the Hereafter. This is why Allah warns against following such people: "Do not rely on those who do wrong, thus causing the Fire to afflict you, for you have no protector besides Allah. Then you will not be helped." (Surah Hud, 113)
IS SAYING "I AM A MUSLIM" SUFFICIENT TO BE CONSIDERED ONE OF THE FAITHFUL?
No, because people are considered believers only if they verbally affirm their belief and then live according to it and call others to follow Allah's commands. According to the Qur'an, the believers have the following attributes:
They pay constant attention to living by the values of religion, sacrifice their personal benefits for the common benefits of religion, overcome the selfish passions of their own souls, pardon others, control their rage and are moderate in their behavior, sacrifice for others even when they are in need, spend their wealth in the way of Allah, are steadfast, convey the message of Islam to spread the religion, remember Allah constantly, perform the prayers meticulously, control their temper even when faced with injustice, are just, and who make sincere efforts in many other such matters.
None of these actions can be fulfilled only by speaking. In other words, it makes no sense to say: "I am doing my best" when no actual effort is being made, or to say: "I will spend my wealth when necessary" and then not doing so. Accordingly, even though saying "I am a Muslim" may be the first step in becoming one of the faithful, it will become true faith only when the person sincerely adheres to Allah's commands to the best of his or her ability. This is explained in the Qur'an, as follows:
Who could say anything better than someone who summons to Allah and acts rightly and says: "I am one of the Muslims"? (Surah Fussilat, 33)

FASCISM THE BLOODY IDEOLOGY OF DARWINISM
By Harun Yahya
Although today there are no states that call themselves fascist or who practice it openly, there are, nevertheless, in many countries in the world, governments, political groups and parties who follow fascistic policies. Though the names and tactics have changed, they continue to inflict similar suffering on their people. There is also a possibility that the coming deterioration of social conditions could lead to further growth in the support for fascism. For that reason, fascism is a continuing threat to humanity.
This book has been written to confront this impending danger. It is intended to expose fascist tendencies that arise under various methods and forms, and to reveal their true root and aim. Another goal of this book is to remove the "religious" facade that fascism sometimes hides behind, and to reveal it as a system completely opposed to true religion.
In order to cure a sickness, it is first necessary to identify the virus that causes it, to then fight it, and find an antidote to it. In this way, the conditions that enable it to thrive can be eliminated, thus doing away with the sickness itself. In a similar manner, to be free of the horror of "fascism," one must fight its ideological basis and the influences that aid it in its growth. The fundamental principle behind fascism today is Darwinism, which is deceptively portrayed as a scientific theory although it is not. Nevertheless, Darwinism, which professes such claims as "human beings are developed animals," "Some races have been left behind in the evolutionary process," and "through survival of the fittest, the strong survive and the weak need be eliminated," has been the source of numerous harmful ideologies throughout the 20th century, and, especially, fascism. Therefore, Darwinism bears much of the responsibility for the oppression and violence that has been brought about.
In this site, we will analyze this scientific crisis faced by the theory of evolution. This work rests solely upon scientific findings. Those advocating the theory of evolution on behalf of scientific truth should confront these findings and question the presumptions they have so far held. Refusal to do this would mean openly accepting that their adherence to the theory of evolution is dogmatic rather than scientific.
