This is a communication to be transmitted to mankind so that they may be warned by it and so that they will know that He is One God and so that people of intelligence will pay heed. (Surah Ibrahim, 52)
Whoever has three things discovers the sweetness of faith: that Allah and His Messenger(saas) are more beloved to him than all else, that he loves another only for the sake of Allah, the Most High, and that he hates to return to disbelief as he would hate to be thrown into Fire. (Muslim and Bukhari)
Everyone wants to live forever; life in the hereafter is eternal
Humanity is set to eternity, which means, all of them want to live forever. They want to have all the beauty and blessings forever.
But, they then realize that their life ends without a warning. All the blessings drain and all the beauty slip away from their hands.
Although humans never want to get old, their bodies constantly get worse and older. Although their souls are all young, fresh and dynamic, their bodies lose their ability that they render useless and stripped off of their stamina and quality..
Just when they feel themselves most efficient, they suddenly realize that they lost their youth, health and have consumed all those years without noticing.
There is a reason for people to find this situation strange. The reason is that Allah created humans with an instinct to live forever. The humankind is set to an eternal life. For this reason, they refuse to get worn in time and grow older. It is almost impossible for them to accept and get used to the concept of being consumed to death.
Therefore humankind is set to eternity. This fact alone is one of the most prominent evidence of the Hereafter. It is not possible that this ephemeral world is the only habitat for the human soul, which is set to eternity. In an ephemeral life that is accepted to end with death, it is impossible for a conscious man to live patiently waiting for the death to come. The only thing for a man to live in peace and comfort is to accept and believe in the existence of Allah and an eternal life in Heaven for him.
Allah endowed humans with a variety of expectations and desires as instincts. Feelings such as love, affection, mercy and compassion are created to be satisfied in this ephemeral world. Eternity is in existence as an instinct to be satisfied just like a cute baby or puppy satisfies the mercy and compassion and friendship, love and security are created as necessities. Allah Who put these necessities into humanity, created the fulfilments as well. As the ephemeral world is not the place to satisfy this strong need, it is certain that humans are created for the Hereafter.
This is an obvious and technical reality that humans experience in their very soul which is created for them to comprehend the existence of the Hereafter. Humankind is endowed with the consciousness to know that they are not going to be perished by death and that they are not going to consume their life for an ultimate annihilation in this world. It would be more than enough to realize that just by reflecting upon it for a couple of minutes. Thus, it is certain that the Hereafter is the final desination. And the Hereafter will be the place where humans are imposed into Heaven and Hell. The conclusion that a conscious man should reach by considering this fact is to know that this ephemeral world is a testing place and to devote himself to the Hereafter for Allah’ sake. For Heaven will be an eternal life that Allah offered to the believers, in which all the blessings or provide forever, Hell will be a macabre life in which most wicked tortures are experienced and it is no use to repent.
How can you reject Allah, when you were dead and then He gave you life, then He will make you die and then give you life again, then you will be returned to Him? (Surat al-Baqara, 28)
The Peerless Planet: Earth
Think for a moment about what is necessary for a man to survive. Water, the sun, oxygen, the atmosphere, plants and animals… All kinds of details, all kinds of conditions you can or can't think of at that moment are naturally available on the Earth. In addition, when we investigate further, we can see that all these vital needs have a web of interrelated details, and that all these details exist in their full splendor on Earth. Everything on Earth, its living things, plants, the sky, and the seas, all these have been created in the best and most complete way in order to suit the existence and survival of humanity.
Along with the Earth, there are also other planets in our solar system. However, among these planets, the only planet that is suitable for life is Earth. The distance of the Earth from the sun, the rotational speed of the Earth on its axis, the inclination of its axis to its orbit, the structure of the Earth's surface and many other independent factors much like these enable our planet to enjoy a warm temperature which is appropriate for life and to diffuse this warmth all over the Earth in a homogeneous way. The composition of the Earth's atmosphere and the size of the Earth are also just as they should be. The light coming to us from the sun, the water we drink, and the foods we enjoy are extremely suitable for our lives.
In short, any sort of close look at the planet we live on will show us that the Earth was designed especially for man. For us to see that the conditions on Earth were specially designed, it will be enough to take a rough look at conditions on other planets. Take Mars, for example. The atmosphere of Mars is a toxic mixture containing a heavy dose of carbon dioxide. There is no water on the surface of the planet. Huge craters caused by the impact of massive meteors are obvious in the picture on the right. As for the weather, monster storms and sandstorms which last for months on end are quite common. The temperature averages -53oC (-64oF).
Considering these features as a whole, Mars, which among our neighboring planets shares the most in common with the Earth, is clearly a dead planet where life is not possible. This comparison palpably demonstrates that the features which make the Earth a livable place are truly tremendous blessings. The One Who has created the entire universe, formed perfectly its stars, planets, mountains and seas, is Allah. Throughout our lives, we should be thankful for His creations and blessings, and take Him as a friend and protector. Allah, Who is the owner of all these things, is the One Who is worthy of all praise. Allah informs us of this fact in the Qur'an:
Is He Who creates like him who does not create? So will you not pay heed? If you tried to number Allah's blessings, you could never count them. Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Surat an-Nahl: 17-18)
Muslims use all their strength and possessions for Allah's approval
In this way, We have made you a middlemost community so that you may act as witnesses against mankind, and the Messenger [may act] as a witness against you. We only appointed the direction you used to face in order to distinguish those who follow the Messenger from those who turn back on their heels. Though in truth it is a very hard thing—except for those Allah has guided. Allah would never let your faith go to waste. Allah is All-Gentle, Most Merciful to mankind. ( Surat al-Baqara, 2:143)
All beings owe their existence to Allah's superior creation and the ensuing complex structures. This is one sign of our Lord's mercy and compassion, since no living being is responsible for its own survival but must submit to Allah's Will. Allah has already given every being whatever it needs. For instance, all living beings have various means of self-defense, such as a startling appearance, poisonous or flammable gasses, high levels of alertness and the ability to outrun their enemies, strong shields, camouflage, or the ability to play dead.
Living beings did not acquire these features coincidentally or by themselves. Allah, Who creates everything flawlessly and with great knowledge, reveals His compassion by endowing them with attributes that enable them to lead their lives comfortably.
Aside from these attributes, one notices that whatever has been created to serve humanity is also superior. Indeed, people who ponder over the material and spiritual attributes they enjoy readily notice that they live in a world that was created especially for them. The fact that our survival is assured is one of the greatest signs of Allah's mercy. However, apart from our five senses, Allah has enabled us to think, an ability that makes us superior to all other living beings. Allah relates His attribute of ar-Rauf in the verses below, as follows:
On the Day that each self finds the good it did and the evil it did present in front of it, it will wish that there were an age between it and them. Allah advises you to beware of Him. Allah is Ever-Gentle with His servants. (Surah Al ‘Imran, 3:30)
Do you not see that Allah has made everything on Earth subservient to you, and the ships running upon the sea by His command? He holds back the heaven, preventing it from falling to the ground—except by His permission. Allah is All-Compassionate to mankind, Most Merciful. ( Surat al-Hajj, 22:65)
He sends down Clear Signs to His servant to bring you out of the darkness and into to the light. Allah is All-Gentle with you, Most Merciful. ( Surat al-Hadid, 57:9)
Hazrat Mahdi's (as) beard will be copious and thick
His (HAZRAT MAHDI’S (AS)) beard will be copious and thick. (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi `Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 23)
His [Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) beard is thick. (Al-Barzanji, Al-Isha'ah li-ashrat al-sa'ah, p. 163)
... He [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] has black hair. His beard is black. (Mari’ bin Yusuf Karami Hanbali, Fawaid Fawaid al-Fikr fil Mahdi al-Montazar)
... The light of his [Hazrat Mahdi’s (as)] face shines like day over the blackness of his hair, beard and head, and gives him grandeur. (Al-Uqayli, An-Najmu's-saqib fi Bayan Anna'l Mahdi min Awladi Ali b. Abu Talib Ale't-Tamam wa al-Qamal)
Hazrat Mahdi (as) has a thick beard... (Mari’ bin Yusuf Karami Hanbali, Fawaid Fawaid al-Fikr fil Mahdi al-Montazar)
Darwinists Who Fail To Grasp The Wisdom Behind The Creation Of Imperfections By Allah, Al-Badi
“Badi”, is one of the names of Almighty Allah. It means “HE WHO CREATES UNIQUE AND ASTONISHING WORLDS.”
Some people are unable to grasp this almighty title of our Lord’s. Others ignore it, despite having understood it. They seek ways of denial. Allah describes the situation of such people in verses:
And they repudiated them wrongly and haughtily, in spite of their own certainty about them. See the final fate of the corrupters. (Surat an-Naml, 14)
Mankind! An example has been made, so listen to it carefully. Those whom you call upon besides Allah are not even able to create a single fly, even if they were to join together to do it. And if a fly steals something from them, they cannot get it back. How feeble are both the seeker and the sought! They do not measure Allah with His true measure. Allah is All-Strong, Almighty. (Surat al-Hajj, 73-74)
Those who are unable to properly appreciate Allah’s might constantly fall into the same error. Instead of producing evidence to support their own claims (as they do not actually possess one shred of evidence to support those claims), they presume to look for flaws in our Lord’s wondrous and sublime Creation (surely Allah is beyond that). The people who do this are generally atheists and Darwinists who set out with the aim of denying Allah. With the advent of the 21st century, Darwinists experienced the worst defeat in their 150-year history. It was in this century that the whole world realized that there are millions of proofs of Creation BUT NOT A SINGLE PIECE OF EVIDENCE FOR EVOLUTION. People have learned during these years that they have been deceived ever since school. They have encountered real scientific evidence for the first time and seen that all the more than 250 million glorious fossils all point to the fact of Creation.
This great defeat has inspired such panic and despair among Darwinists that the adherents of evolution have sought to retrieve the situation with a counter-attack based on lies and deceit. Programs about evolution on the television and Darwinist journals try to neutralize their defeat by constantly raising the same subject. What they maintain is this: that living things are not flawless.
It will be of use to repeat one very important point that we have already set out many times in the past: of course living things are not flawless. But what Darwinists refuse to understand is this; in the same way that living things have been created with an extraordinarily complex and flawless perfection, the secrets of which human beings have not been able to unravel, so their flaws have also been specially created. By creating their imperfections, our Lord shows that He has the power to create whatever entity He wishes as flawless and as beautiful as he wishes. Flaws are a reminder that this world is a temporary place of test. By creating flaws, our Lord shows that the life of this world is not the true aim of life, and that perfection exists only in the Hereafter, in Paradise. Allah, Who flawlessly creates ever more glorious worlds with an extraordinary perfection and beauty, has of course the power create all things equally flawless. Because Almighty Allah is the Lord of all the worlds, and flawless creation belongs to Him alone. His artistry is breathtaking, and full of glory.
If human beings were created perfect in this world they could never know the secret of the test, or that they had to be the servants of Allah, and would never strive to earn His approval and Paradise. This world would suffice for someone possessed of perfections in it, and no longing for the Hereafter would ever arise. There is a special wisdom in the way that although many living things are never with disease, are highly resistant to even the most extraordinary conditions, and that flowers smell lovely wherever they are, while none of these things develop to perfection in human beings. People draw closer to Allah by seeing their own weaknesses; they see the true nature of the life of this world and strive to draw closer to Him in order to attain the Paradise created by Allah, the sole Lord of all perfection. People who know their weaknesses do not become proud and arrogant (surely Allah is beyond that). It is certain that Almighty Allah, Lord of the Worlds, will create every entity in the most perfect, flawless and immaculate form in the Hereafter. That Creation will of course take place by Almighty Allah simply telling them to “Be!” As our Lord says in the Qur’an:
Have they not seen how Allah brings Creation out of nothing, then reproduces it? That is easy for Allah. Say: “Travel about the earth and see how He brought Creation out of nothing. Then later Allah will bring about the next existence. Allah has power over all things.” (Surat al-‘Ankabut, 19-20)
Since Darwinists are unaware of this great truth, they make themselves ridiculous by coming up with the most nonsensical claims. Of course, they themselves are perfectly well aware that these claims are untrue and invalid. They themselves witness Allah’s immaculate creative artistry. But their lack of a single piece of scientific evidence, their helpless position and the panic caused by their defeat impel them to offer such forced and nonsensical statements.
THE COMING OF THE UNIVERSE INTO EXISTENCE
Until the mid-20th century, the prevalent view across the world was that the universe was infinite, had existed forever and that it will continue to do so for all time. According to this view, known as the "static universe model," the universe had no end or beginning.
In maintaining that the universe is a collection of fixed, static and unchanging substances, this view has constituted the basis of materialist philosophy and has consequently rejected the existence of a Creator. However, as science and technology progressed during the 20th century, the static universe model has been completely uprooted.
We have now entered the 21st century and a new dawn is upon us. Through numerous experiments, observations and calculation conducted by some of the world's most prominent thinkers, modern physics has proven that the universe did indeed have a beginning, that it came into being from nothing in a single moment in a huge explosion. Furthermore, it has been established that the universe is not fixed and static, as materialists still stubbornly maintain. On the contrary, it is undergoing a constant process of movement, change and expansion. These recently-established facts all act as nails in the coffin of the static universe theory. Today, all these facts are universally accepted by the scientific community.
The origin of the universe is described in the Qur'an in the following verse:
He is the Originator of the heavens and the earth. (Surat al-An'am: 101)
This information is in full agreement with the findings of contemporary scientists. As we stated earlier, the conclusion that astrophysics has reached today is that the entire universe, together with the dimensions of matter and time, came into existence as a result of a great explosion that occurred a long time ago. This event, known as "The Big Bang," is the catalyst for the creation of the universe from nothingness. This explosion, all parties in the scientific community agree, emanated from a single point some 15 billion years ago. (See Harun Yahya, The Creation of the Universe, Al-Attique Publishers Inc. Canada, 2000)
Before the Big Bang, there was no such thing as matter. From a condition of non-existence in which neither matter, nor energy, nor even time existed-and which can only be described metaphysically-matter, energy, and time were all created in an instant. This fact, only recently discovered by modern physics, was announced to us in the Qur'an 1,400 years ago.
The sensitive sensors on board the COBE space satellite, launched by NASA in 1992, captured evidentiary remnants of the Big Bang. This discovery served as evidence for the Big Bang, which is the scientific explanation of the fact that the universe was created from nothing.

All the fossils unearthed show that birds have always existed as birds, and that they have not evolved from any other life form. Darwinists, who maintain that birds evolved from terrestrial animals, are actually well aware of this, and are unable to account for how wings and the flight mechanism emerged through an evolutionary process and through random mechanisms such as mutation.
The Turkish biologist Engin Korur admits the impossibility of wing evolution: "The common feature of eyes and wings is that they can perform their functions only when they are fully developed. To put it another way, sight is impossible with a deficient eye, and flight is impossible with half a wing. How these organs appeared is still one of those secrets of nature that have not yet been fully illuminated." (Engin Korur, "Gozlerin ve Kanatlarin Sirri" ("The Secret of Eyes and Wings"), Bilim ve Teknik, No. 203, October 1984, p. 25.)
Powerful wing muscles must be securely attached to the bird's breastbone, and have a structure suitable for lifting the bird into the air and establishing balance and movement in all directions when aloft. It is also essential that bird's wing and tail feathers be light, flexible and in proportion to one another—that they should have a perfect aerodynamic framework making flight possible.
At this point, the theory of evolution faces a major dilemma: The question of how this wing's flawless structure could have emerged as the result of a succession of random mutations goes unanswered. "Evolution" can never explain how a reptile's forelegs could have developed into a flawless wing as the result of impairments in its genes—that is, mutations.
As the quotation cited on the preceding page states, flight is impossible with just a half wing. Therefore, even if we assume that a mutation of some kind did cause some kind of changes in a reptile's forelegs, it is still irrational to expect that a wing could emerge by chance, as a result of other mutations being added on. Any mutation in the front legs would not endow the animal with wings, but would deprive it of the use of its forelegs. This would leave the creature physically disadvantaged (crippled, in other words) compared to other members of its species.
According to biophysical research, mutations take place only very rarely. Therefore, it is impossible to expect such handicapped creatures to wait for millions of years for their half-formed, functionless wings to be completed by small mutations.

Türkiye, April 16- 2010
Gül reminded that Nazarbayev told him, “Many years have passed since the Ottoman Empire and now Turkish flag has begun to ramp all over the world.” He also noted that everyone is aware of the distance Turkey has covered.
President of the Turkish Republic Abdullah Gül pointed out that Turkey is wasting its energy on political debate and said, “Progress would be more rapid if we did not waste our energy on these insignificant debates.”
The descent of Prophet ‘Isa (As) and the coming of the Mahdi are subjects “that cannot be denied” in the faith (itiqad) of the people of the people of the sunnah.
According to the beliefs of the people of the Sunnah (the Hanafi, Hanbali, Shafi’i and Maliki schools), the coming of the Mahdi, the descent from the skies of the Prophet ‘Isa (as) and his bestowing the role of imam on the Mahdi are all unquestionable tenets of faith.
In this site you may find some trustworthy hadith regarding the coming of the prophet Isa (As) and the blessed Mahdi.
We sent down the Torah containing guidance and light, and the prophets who had submitted themselves gave judgement by it for the Jews – as did their scholars (Rabaniyun) and their rabbis (Ahbar) – by what they had been allowed to preserve of Allah’s Book to which they were witnesses…(Surat al-Ma‘ida, 44)
Then We gave Moses the Book, complete and perfect for him who does good, elucidating everything, and a guidance and a mercy, so that hopefully they believe in their encounter with their Lord. (Surat al-An‘am, 154)
But before it there was the Book of Moses as a model (imam) and a mercy. And this is a corroborating Book in the Arabic tongue so that you may warn those who do wrong, and as good news for the good-doers. (Surat al-Ahqaf, 12)
We sent Moses with Our signs: “Bring your people from the darkness to the light. and remind them of the Days of Allah.” There are certainly signs in that for everyone who is steadfast, thankful. (Surah Ibrahim, 5)
He (Allah) said, “Moses, I have chosen you over all mankind for My message and My word. Take what I have given you and be among the thankful.” We wrote about everything for him on the Tablets as an admonition and making all things clear. “Seize hold of it vigorously and command your people to adopt the best in it. I will show you the home of the deviators!” (Surat al-A‘raf, 144-145)
