WHO IS HARUN YAHYA?
Adnan Oktar, using the pen-name "Harun Yahya" devoted his life to explaining the existence and the unity of Allah and the magnificence of the morals of the Qur"an. He spent all his life serving for this purpose from his early ages. He has never given up against the difficulties he faced. The biography states that Oktar entered university in 1979 and has authored over 100 books since 1986 - a remarkable output indeed for a single person.
