You who have iman, be steadfast; be supreme in steadfastness; be firm on the battlefield; and have taqwa of Allah; so that hopefully you will be successful. (Surat Al ‘Imran, 200)
Islam praises women
Muslim Woman Is Noble
A Muslim woman is noble; she has a character that does not stoop to simple attitudes and insignificant interests. She knows that jealousy, gossiping, sarcasm, caprice, hypocrisy and similar attitudes do not please Allah and that they are humiliating attitudes giving harm to one’s personality and distancing her from nobility. Therefore, she never deigns to any of these behaviors.
She remains resolute about always assuming attitudes in compliance with the morality of the Qur’an as she knows that this will raise someone to the noblest state. Every moment she displays sedate character because she lives by the morality of the Qur’an. For instance, she never uses the flaws of others as an object of sarcasm; on the contrary she tries to compensate others’ flaws in the most pleasant way. When she sees someone having a superior trait, she praises that person rather than being jealous of him. She responds to every attitude in the noblest manner and conducts herself in compliance with the morality of the Qur’an. Even if people respond her with low behaviors, she never ceases to be noble and sedate, and remains persistent in her nobility.
Muslim Woman Is Virtuous and Dignified
In the Holy Quran: “If ye (but) eschew the most heinous of the things which ye are forbidden to do, We shall expel out of you all the evil in you, and admit you to a gate of great honour. (Surah An-Nisa, 31); Allah announces that He will grant the honour only to those who have a sincere effort in living Quranic morality and to those who fear Him deeply.
True dignity is to disdain hypocrisy, lie, and small impostures for small interests and simple behaviors; as one fears Allah deeply and sincerely believes in the Hereafter. It is to be able to respond nicely, morally and maturely to those who act ignorantly.
Muslim woman performs a dignified and sedate personality deriving from her deep faith in Allah. Knowing that performing behaviors in accordance with Quranic morality is the only thing that makes one superior; she never appeases from her modest, devoted character that pleases Allah.
In many verses of the Quran, Allah emphasized the importance of virtue and the values it brings to a woman. Allah announces the importance of virtue in a Quran verse: “…that is most convenient, that they should be known (as such) and not molested.” (Surah Al-Ahzabi 59). Virtue brings respect and dignity to a woman and prevents her from being insulted in the society. Muslim women obey every single rule Allah announced them in the Quran and thus they attain dignity, sedateness and respect. It is possible to understand how virtuous and sedate she is from the looks, laughs, gestures, speeches and attitudes of that kind of person. Virtuous woman has natural nobility, a humane grandeur and trusted personality. Allah announces in a Quran verse that true believers might be known from their faces: “…On their faces are their marks, (being) the traces of their prostration” (Surah Al-Fath,29)
One whom birds had seized and the wind had dropped in a distant place
Beings other than Almighty Allah are merely His creations, and they have come into their existence and continue their existence only through His Will. It is Allah Who grants life and sustains that life which He created through His Mercy and His Boundless Compassion; it is Allah alone Who is omnipotent, and all of His creations are infinitely poor and depend on Him for their sustenance. They have no power nor abilities beyond that which our Lord has seen fit to bestow upon them through His eternal Wisdom. Therefore, there are no other living being that anyone can, or should, implore for help, mercy, favor, or blessings other than our Lord, Almighty Allah, He Who created all things.
A person who implores anyone or anything other than Allah, who asks false idols for mercy, benevolence, or who puts trust in any other thing other than Allah faces not only a horrific punishment in the Hereafter, but will also face emptiness, hopelessness and loneliness in the life of this world as well. Those who foolishly associate others with Allah are indeed among those who listen to the whisperings of the satan, and those who follow the path of the adversary are truly among the lost; their only hope of salvation is to turn in humble and sincere repentance toward our Lord, Almighty Allah, He Who created all things, and without whom one faces only forlong life in this world and an eternity of reproach and punishment in the next. Almighty Allah explains the predicament of those who associate others with Him in this verse from the Qur'an;
“...As for anyone who associates others with Allah, it is as though he had fallen from the sky and the birds had seized him and carried him away, or the wind had dropped him in a distant place.” (Surat al-Hajj, 31)
The believers, in contrast, place their trust in Allah alone, and they are servants to Him and turn to our Lord alone for help; it is the believers who, through the boundless Mercy of our Lord, live lives filled with dignity, honor, and felicity. These people are “...those who have faith and whose hearts find peace in the remembrance of Allah...” (Surat ar-Ra'd, 28), as our Lord has revealed in the Qur'an. A believer whose heart and soul is satisfied with the remembrance of Allah needs nothing else because they have earned the highest possible honor; the good pleasure of our Lord, Almighty Allah.
Hazrat Mahdi (as) being given the glad tidings of paradise
Hazrat Mahdi (as) is the peacock (adornment) of the Paradise.
(Bihar al-Anwar, Vol 51, p. 105)
According to Abdullah bin Abbas' account, related in Daylami's Firdaws, the Messenger of Allah (saas) said, "The Mahdi is a handsome young man from the people of paradise."
(Al-Uqayli An-Najm al-saqib fi Bayan Anna al-Mahdi min Awladi Ali Ibn Abi Talib Ale't-Temam wa al-qamal)
..It is narrated from Anas ibn Malik (ra) that: I heard the Messenger of Allah (saas) say: We are the senior ones of the people of Paradise, the children of Abdulmuttalib. Me, Hamza, Ali, Jaffar, Hasan, Hussein and the Mahdi.
(Sunan Ibn Majah, 10/349)
Protein cannot form unless the cell exists as an integral whole
Darwinists can write as many deceptive books jam packed with formulae, produce as many false fossils as they like, make as many demagogic assaults on the scientific evidence for Creation as they choose or stick posters up full of fantastical illustrations and present these as exhibitions of evolution all over the place, but none of this will ever change the fact of their fundamental defeat. Because the worst nightmare for Darwinists is the very beginning of life. Darwinists HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO PRODUCE A SINGLE EXPLANATION of how just one protein came into being. This is an expression of the despairing situation into which, Dawkins, Futuyma, Tim White and all other Darwinists now find themselves. None of this demagoguery can resolve this great and stupendous rout in the face of a single protein. A SINGLE PROTEIN HAS TOTALLY DEMOLISHED DARWINISM.
One important feature of Darwinist demagoguery is that Darwinists always tended to reduce the question of the origin of life to the very simple, despite all the complexity of life, by portraying everything within it as very simple. That is the reason for such myths as “the cell emerged from muddy water” and “DNA spontaneously began replicating itself.” Darwinists imagined it would be easier to deceive people in this way. But they have now seen that the time for such deception has passed. Not only do people now know that a single protein is far too complex ever to come into being spontaneously, they are also aware that neither a protein, DNA, RNA or any other minute component of the cell WILL SERVE ANY PURPOSE IN THE ABSENCE OF THE CELL AS A WHOLE.
This fact is of great important in terms of the defeat of Darwinism:
- DNA is essential for a single protein to form
- DNA cannot form without protein
- Protein cannot form without DNA
- Protein cannot form in the absence of protein
- Sixty separate proteins are needed for a single protein to form
- Protein cannot form in the absence of any one of these
- Protein cannot form with no ribosome
- Protein cannot form with no RNA
- Protein cannot form without ATP
- Protein cannot form without the mitochondria to manufacture ATP
- Protein cannot form without the cell nucleus
- Protein cannot form without the cytoplasm
- Protein cannot form in the absence of a single organelle in the cell
- And proteins are necessary for all the organelles in the cell to exist and function
- There can be no protein without these organelles.
This is an interconnected system that has to function simultaneously. You cannot have one part without the other. Even if one component exists, it will still not function in the absence of the others.
THE WHOLE CELLIS NECESSARY FOR A PROTEIN TO FORM. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR A SINGLE PROETIN TO FORM IN THE ABSENCE OF THE WHOLE CELL, with its perfect complex structure we see today, but of which we understand only a very small part.
Even if this protein did form spontaneously (which is in any case impossible), it will still serve no purpose. It will just wander around alone and die.
Therefore, Dawkins’ claim of “a spontaneously replicating molecule” is utterly ludicrous and solely intended to deceive. NO MOLECULE IN THE HUMAN CELL POSSESSES THE ABILITY TO REPLICATE ITSELF SPONTANEOUSLY WITHOUT THE HELP OF ANY OTHER MOLECULE.
The Cambridge University Professor of Philosophy Stephen C. Meyer describes this in his book The Signature in the Cell:
Following the elucidation of the structure and function of DNA during the 1950s and early 1960s, a radically new conception of life began to emerge. Not only did molecular biologits discover that DNA carried information; they soon began to suspect that living organisms must contain systems for processing genetic information. Just as the digital information stored on a disc is useless without a device for reading the disc, so too is the information on DNA useless without the cell’s information-processing system. As Richard Lewontin notes, “No living molecule (i.e., biomolecule) is self-producing. Only whole cells may contain all the necessary machinery for self-reproduction... Not only is DNA incapable of making copies of itself, aided or unaided, but it is incapable of ‘making’ anything else... The proteins of the cell are made from other proteins, and without that protein-forming machinery nothing can be made.”1
These statements once again reveal the inconsistency of these accounts by Dawkins, who has recently converted to the religion of outer space. The Earth is the most ideal environment in all of space for the survival of the living cell. But not even these ideal conditions by themselves make it possible for the cell to be able to form spontaneously. Dawkins has looked for a new explanation in the face of this and now maintains that a molecule capable of replicating spontaneously formed in space and subsequently made its way to Earth. The first insoluble problem here is that no such living molecule can form spontaneously. The second is, as set out above, that no living molecule can replicate spontaneously, not even on Earth. Aware of these insoluble problems, Dawkins eventually had to admit that such a molecule was created by a sublime intelligence.2

Sea horses (Hippocampus sp.) generally cling onto plants with their tails, and swim upright with their dorsal fin because they lack tail fins. Their ability to swim upright is based on their being able to fill their flotation sacs with air very quickly.
Pictured is a fossilized sea horse discovered in rock beds in northern Italy. This sea horse, from Miocene period, is exactly the same in terms of all its organs and structures—its skeleton, flotation sac and gills—as present-day sea horses. Sea horses have remained unchanged since they first begin appearing in the fossil record, and fundamentally invalidate evolutionist claims.
Surah Yusuf of the Qur’an is almost entirely about the life of the Prophet Yusuf and his family. There are important lessons to learn from this story for believers. In this book, you will read about the life of the Prophet Yusuf, who went through various difficulties since his childhood and was later given to the control of the treasures of Egypt, in the light of Qur’anic verses and striking explanations.
The Turkish-Islamic Union is a union of love. It is a union of affection, a union of hearts. The bases of this union are love, altruism, helping others, compassion, tolerance and understanding. The aim of the union is also to achieve the highest levels in respect for human beings and in art, science and technology. Recent developments show that the foundation of the Turkish-Islamic Union, awaited with great excitement and enthusiasm by the Turkish-Islamic world, is close at hand.
