THE BEAUTIES OF THIS WORLD ARE IMPERFECT AND FLAWED

This world is dream-like. In the same way that the taste and feeling of satisfaction imparted by the apple one eats in a dream are nothing compared to those of the apple one eats when one is awake, so the pleasure one receives from this world's actions is a poor man's version of its equivalent in the Hereafter. In the Qur'an, Allah warns people against the deceptive nature of the life of this world:

... Allah's promise is true. So do not let the life of this world delude you and do not let the Deluder delude you concerning Allah. (Surah Luqman, 33)

Allah created man from clay and breathed His own soul into him; in other words, He created man from "nothing." Allah knows all of the characteristics of human beings and He is fully aware of their earthly desires. He knows of their weaknesses, wishes, the things they enjoy or need, their doubts and fears, in short everything, better than they do themselves. Allah reveals how close He is to us in another verse:

We created man and We know what his own self whispers to him. We are nearer to him than his jugular vein. (Surah Qaf, 16)




Human beings always feel a deep longing for perfection in their souls. As a requirement of the testing they undergo, Allah, Who knows all their desires and passions, has created the life of this world with flaws and imperfections alongside its countless blessings. People, if they wish to be spiritually successful, must strive to overcome these imperfections and rid themselves of flaws in order to pass the test erected in front of them by the Lord. However, one must always bear in mind the fact that it is still impossible for them to achieve the desired level of perfection. Allah has made this perfection unique to Paradise and to those of His servants deserving of bliss.

In the life of this world, a struggle with a great many more imperfections is necessary just in order to survive; human beings, without exception, need to eat every day, sleep, protect themselves from illness, wash and take care of themselves. In exactly the same way, they need to use their reason and conscience at all times in order to protect themselves from the evils of earthly desires and to exhibit proper moral values.

As revealed in the Qur'an, "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), Allah's creation is flawless. Our Lord has the power to accomplish all and to create everything He so desires. Yet He encourages human beings to think by creating flaws and imperfections in the life of this world.

When considered in its components and compared to the perfection of the life of Paradise, the wisdom in the imperfections in the life of this world can be more easily comprehended. To give an example, no matter what, an individual can go no longer than two or three days-if that-without sleeping. There then follows a gradual loss of consciousness and that person loses all touch with reality. Similarly, a person who goes several days without washing becomes dirty and will feel an immense physical discomfort. A person also needs to feed and look after him or herself on a regular basis in order to survive. Falling ill is another serious imperfection. That is because human beings are so helpless that even a germ or virus, so small as to be invisible to the naked eye, can result in sickness and oblige the individual to do nothing but rest for weeks on end. In such an event, the person becomes weak and takes little pleasure from most things. The individual concerned will no doubt become highly dependant on the help and care of other people.





On account of His infinite compassion, our Lord has also created the means by which people can overcome the imperfections they encounter in the life of this world; foodstuffs which confer strength and power, materials which can be used for cleaning and bodily maintenance, and medicines capable of curing illness are all manifestations of Allah's compassion for and protection of His creatures.

Alongside such physical imperfections in the life of this world, there are also spiritual ones: the way a person's heart may be troubled, and feeling of doubt or fear are examples of this. Moreover, earthly passions are never satisfied for long; an activity embarked on with enormous enthusiasm soon becomes wearisome. These are all just some of the imperfections specially created by Allah in this world.

However, let us also note that although the spiritual difficulties in the life of this world turn into great suffering for those without faith, believers live far distant from them. Human beings are created with a great many negative features in their desires; yet faith and a fear of Allah will shelter them from these evils and the weaknesses of their own passions, their own worldliness. Binding oneself to Allah with sincere faith and submission prevents a person from suffering such spiritual troubles as fatigue, despair and sorrow. On the other hand, the above-mentioned spiritual difficulties result in horrible crises for non-believers.

With all these flaws and imperfections He has created, Allah reveals to us the false face of this world which He has created solely to test us in our faith. The individual thus longs for a life in which there is no imperfection, in which everything is flawless and complete-for Paradise. In Paradise, people will live forever with no troubles of any kind, never becoming weary and never become bored of that which they are given by Allah. As He reveals in the Qur'an:

They will say, "Praise be to Allah Who has removed all sadness from us. Truly our Lord is Ever-Forgiving, Ever-Thankful: He Who has lodged us, out of His favor, in the Abode of Permanence where no weariness or fatigue affects us." (Surat al-Fatir, 34-35)

In another verse, Allah has revealed that in Paradise believers will find everything their hearts desire:

The angels descend on those who say, "Our Lord is Allah," and then go straight: "Do not fear and do not grieve but rejoice in the Garden you have been promised. We are your protectors in the life of this world and the Hereafter. You will have there all that your selves could wish for. You will have there everything you demand." (Surah Fussilat, 30-31)

Since unbelievers do not believe in the existence of the Hereafter, they vainly try to fulfill this aspect of their desires from the life of this world. They wrongly think that the more blessings of this world they can acquire, the happier they will be. Therefore, as revealed in the verse, "Leave the person I created on his own to Me alone, him to whom I have given great wealth, and sons who stay with him, and whose way I have smoothed. Then he wants Me to add yet more!" (Surat al-Muddaththir, 11-15), they chase after the offerings of this world with great passion and cupidity.





However, the fact is that no number of material items will bring a person the happiness he or she seeks. That is because the emptiness in the hearts of unbelievers which they seek to fill with material values actually stem from the fact that they lead their lives far distant from Allah. Allah has created human beings in such a way that they can only find peace by remembering Him. Someone who fails to remember Allah wastes his or her life. Such people erroneously imagine that goods, property, rank or fame guarantee great happiness.

Only in the Hereafter will they realize the ultimate hollowness of the efforts they expended in this world. In return for their rejection of Allah in this world, they will encounter bitter suffering in the next. This is such a horrendous torment that they will happily give up all that was dear to them in this world to be freed from it: their families, their friends, the goods they were so deeply attached to and which they sought to add to by working day and night. Allah has revealed the situation of the unbelievers in the Hereafter:

If every self that did wrong possessed everything on Earth, it would offer it as a ransom. They will show remorse when they see the punishment. Everything will be decided between them justly. They will not be wronged. (Surah Yunus, 54)

If those who did wrong owned everything on Earth, and the same again with it, they would offer it as a ransom to save themselves from the evil of the punishment on the Day of Resurrection. What confronts them from Allah will be something they did not reckon with. (Surat az-Zumar, 47)

... [T]hey can see each other. An evildoer will wish he could ransom himself from the punishment of that Day, by means of his sons, or his wife or his brother or his family who sheltered him or everyone else on Earth, if that only meant that he could save himself. But no! It is a Raging Blaze... (Surat Al-Ma'arij, 11-15)

It is those who have faith and who live for the good pleasure of Allah who will be saved both from the troubles of this world and the eternal suffering in the Afterlife. In the Qur'an, Allah gives those who demonstrate that morality the news of a pleasing life in both this world and the next:

Anyone who acts rightly, male or female, being a believer, We will give them a good life and We will recompense them according to the best of what they did. (Surat an-Nahl, 97)





Pearls: Dazzling Jewels of the Sea

On Earth, wherever one turns his eyes and looks, one meets a magnificent creation, a perfect design with amazing features. The examples we give throughout this site only a few small details of this magnificence. God has created many plant and animal species on Earth whose appearances are splendid. He has brought everything into existence in a way that man finds pleasure in. Along with these, many ornaments have been created on Earth by God and have been given into the service of men. The pearl, which is one of these ornaments, has very interesting features besides its outstanding beauty.

The developmental phases of the pearl are amazing. The pearl is generally produced by the "pearl oyster," of which many kinds exist. The shells of oysters are quite hard. The composition of their outer shells, which are very difficult to open, is calcium carbonate-based and deters many of their enemies. The calcium carbonate also plays an important role in the oyster's formation of pearls.

The oyster is irritated when sand, a pebble or harmful parasitic organisms enter inside of it. In such situations, it isolates the uninvited guest, as a method of protection, and begins to cover it with nacre. This covering process is the first phase of the formation of the pearl. The foreign particles entering the oyster serve as a nucleus for the formation of the pearls. Through the years, the surface of this nuclear substance will be covered with calcium carbonate layers forming one on the top of the other.

How is the nacre inside the oyster made? There are two main ingredients that form the nacre among the layers of the oyster's inner tissues. In one layer is a mineral called "aragonite," the content of which is calcium carbonate; in another layer is an adhesive substance "conchiolin," which holds the aragonite together in the pearl. Since aragonite is a semi-transparent substance, it gives the pearl a shiny look. It is surely thought provoking that these two substances are produced by the oyster (a composition of shell and flesh that doesn't even have a brain) and then they come together and form such a beautiful object as a pearl by covering a mere dust particle. The pearl that an oyster produces for the purpose of protection is created as an aesthetic ornament for man.

God draws attention to the pearl with the verse in the Qur'an "From out of them come glistening pearls and coral." (Surat Ar-Rahman, 22) Furthermore, the pearl is also mentioned in the Qur'an as one of the ornaments of Paradise .





1,5 MILLION YEAR OLD FOOTPRINTS IS A BRAND NEW, SHOCKING, SEVERE BLOW TO THE IMAGINARY EVOLUTION

The 21st century is the century when the collapse of Darwinism is declared. Following the unveiling of 100 million fossils declaring the collapse of Darwinism, the greatest blow to the theory is a newly found human foot print fossil. Contrary to all the Darwinist claims, this fossil indicates that CONTEMPORARY MAN WAS LIVING 1,5 MILLION YEARS AGO.

Darwinist scientists who uncovered the fossil agree that the fossil they discovered in Kenya is THE SAME WITH THE CONTEMPORARY MAN. Among the foot prints discovered, there is also one belonging to a child. The measurements made according to the size of the foot print, gaps between fingers and the depth of the earth reveal that the particular feet print, which was discussed in Science magazine and then in news channels such as Reuters and BBC News, belongs to a human being of 1.79-1.80 (5 feet 9 inches). The very same measurements also make it possible to understand the weight, stride length and the gait. ALL THESE MEASUREMENTS MADE ON THE FOOTPRINT REVEALED THOSE OF THE CONTEMPORARY MAN.1
 
As is also understood from the footprint, the thumb of this person, AS IS THE CASE WITH CONTEMPORARY MAN, is parallel to other fingers. These prints had an arch in the foot THE WAY CONTEMPORARY MAN HAS and short fingers DEFINITELY CERTIFY UPRIGHT POSITION.2
 
David Braun, a researcher of the South Africa Cape Town University, states the following about the fossil:

“It was kind of creepy excavating these things to see all of a sudden something that looks so dramatically like something that you yourself could have made 20 minutes earlier in some kind of wet sediment just next to the site,”

Braun added:

“These could quite easily have been made on the beach today.”

This fact, which is openly confessed by Darwinist scientists and Darwinists publications, is not likely to be rejected. Claiming until presence that contemporary man appeared on Earth 200,000 years ago, Darwinists made up an imaginary scenario of evolution and made speculations upon it. However this foot print dating back to 1.5 million years, has the potency to remove all Darwinist speculations. There are millions of     fossils refuting Darwinism. However, as is seen openly, even a single one of them has the potency to totally eliminate this obsolete theory.

It is High Time Darwinists Should Put an End to Homo Erectus Hoax

Despite this definite, clear and perfect fact, some of the Darwinist publications have not neglected to continue evolutionist propaganda, which they have made a tradition of, and claimed that these footprints belong to Homo Erectus. HOWEVER, THIS IS AN OUTRIGHT LIE.

Homo Erectus story is the false ring required by the fraudulent sequence made up by Darwinists for the imaginary evolution of man. Darwinists deceived people for years by placing Austrolapitecus, which is in its real sense an ape lineage, in this imaginary sequence, and Homo Erectus, which is no different from contemporary man, between man and ape.

The most important references of evolutionists in calling Homo Erectus “primitive” are its skull’s volume (900-1100 cc.), which is smaller than contemporary man’s average skull volume, and its thick eyebrow protrusion.  However, there are also many people living in our day having the same average skull volume with Homo Erectus (for instance, pigmy) and there are also eyebrow protrusions in various races. (for instance Australian Aborigines). It is a known fact that intelligence changes not according to the brain’s volume but according to the organization within the brain. Consequently, it is not possible to label Homo Erectus as “primitive.”
 
In this particular example it is clear that readers are face to face with Darwinist propaganda. The fossil in question is a footprint. We can understand the basic features of the living being mentioned above from the footprint and it provides important information. However, it is not possible to determine the skull volume of a human or the thickness of eyebrow protrusion from this footprint. As mentioned before, even if the living being possesses the features in question, this will not show that it is different from contemporary man. It will only show that it is the same with one of the races in our day, that is all.

Homo Erectus story is an outdated claim that is not even advocated by Darwinists themselves. Making up such a great lie even in the case of such an important footprint fossil related to the fraudulent nature of the story of the evolution of man, simply means to disdain readers and scientists, and is a grave accusation directed toward them. The scientific evidence refuting Darwinism will no longer be removed with the same fake methods.

Conclusion:

The process that began with the emergence of 100 million fossils proving Creation, which Darwinists strive to hide with care, is going on today with acceleration. The scenario of human evolution Darwinists try to inculcate in people’s minds for years by displaying fake skulls has ended in an amazing defeat. By the hands of Darwinist scientists, Allah unearthed an extraordinary evidence from the soil. In an undeniable way, Allah showed them that no living being, including human beings, has ever changed. Darwinist scientists have confessed this in Darwinist publications in their own words. Allah, with His name al-Jabbar (The Powerful, the Irresistible) made them confess Darwinism’s collapse. THIS IS AN INEVITABLE END OF DARWINISM. THIS IS THE PROMISE OF OUR LORD. The Glorious Allah will eliminate this deviant hoax and definitely solidify the truth.

    ... By His Words Allah wipes out the false and confirms the truth. He knows what the heart contains. (Surat ash-Shura, 24)

Muslims, Christians and Jews Will Live as Friends in Jerusalem in the Time of Hadhrat Mahdi - 17.11.2008
Palestine/Daily Al-Quds (Jerusalem)
 
The Arabic-language daily Al-Quds (Jerusalem), the most popular paper in Palestine and those parts of Israel populated by Palestinians, carried a report on 17 November 2008 titled “Turkish Thinker and Scholar Adnan Oktar: Jerusalem Will Soon Belong to Muslims” over an interview conducted with Adnan Oktar in Istanbul. During the interview, in which he described what needed to be done for the conflict and suffering in Palestine to come to an end, Adnan Oktar issued significant messages, both warnings and of welcome news, for the Palestinian people. Some extracts from the interview read as follows:

"Resistance through faith, culture, knowledge and maturity is one of the greatest weapons in the world; much more effective than the atom bomb, incomparably more; a powerful bond of love and affection, a conception of compassion and profound knowledge will attract support from the entire world; but ignorance and violence will attract global revulsion. I am telling you now the goods news that the Palestinian problem will be totally resolved through prayer, strong, loving devotion to Allah and powerful fear of Him.”

"We are told in the hadiths there will be a time of discord, followed by union. That will be in the time of the Mahdi; Muslims must seek the Mahdi. Muslims must trust the words of our Prophet (saas)… If suffering people want ease and peace, they must trust in the Prophet’s (saas) promise, seek the Mahdi and feel a profound love for the Mahdi, they must feel a deep respect for the Prophet Jesus, and anticipate his coming and pray for it. They must keep a close watch on the signs of the End Times, and do all in their power to spread Islam and Islamic moral values in the meantime, to eliminate Darwinism and materialism on the intellectual plane; in other words, a cultural and intellectual struggle is vitally and crucially important.”

"Jerusalem will eventually belong to Muslims, and I say that on the basis of the hadiths of our Prophet (saas). When the Mahdi comes and the Prophet Jesus returns, Jerusalem and the whole region from top to bottom will be filled with Muslims, insha’Allah. There will also be our Jewish brothers, and Christians, too; but Muslims will enjoy a spiritual leadership there, insha’Allah. They will live there as friends and brothers, insha’Allah.”






''The Crisis Has Taught Us That the Interest System Is Wrong'' / Daily Yeni Safak / 28.10.2008
 
These words were spoken by Jürgen Rüttgers, prime minister of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia at the opening of the Central Mosque in Germany. Rüttgers's statement that, “We need more mosques where everyone can see them” attracted everyone’s attention.  Rüttgers also stated that they had realized the error of the interest system, banned in Islam, with the outbreak of the economic crisis. 

Allah tells us the interest is a sin in verse 275 of Sura al-Baqara:

“...But Allah has permitted trade and He has forbidden interest. Whoever is given a warning by his Lord and then desists, can keep what he received in the past and his affair is Allah’s concern. But all who return to it will be the Companions of the Fire, remaining in it timelessly, for ever.” (Sura al-Baqara, 275)




NAUTILUS





NAUTILUS (left)

Age: 113 to 97 million years old

Size: 6.6 centimeters (2.6 in) at the apex of its oval, by 5 centimeters (2 in) across

Location: Mahajanga, Madagascar

Period: Cretaceous, Albian stage

The fact that a nautilus that lived between 113 and 97 million years ago and a present-day nautilus are identical once more shows that the theory of evolution is a huge deception.

NAUTILUS (right)

Age: 114 million years old

Size: 55 millimeters (2.1 in)

Location: Madagascar

Period: Cretaceous, Albian Stage

The nautilus has dealt a severe blow to the theory of evolution, having undergone no change in 300 million years. The 114-million-year-old nautilus shown here is completely identical to present-day specimens.






 AL-AKHIR

The Last; The One Who Exists After Everything Else Perishes

He is the First and the Last , the Outward and the Inward. He has knowledge of all things. ( Surat al-Hadid, 3)

Allah created the universe from nothing and, ultimately, will return it to its initial state and destroy it. Nothing is immortal, for all living beings come into existence for a predetermined period of time and then die—everything, that is, except Allah, Who is the First and the Last and therefore without beginning or end.

Allah, the Creator of life and time, is not affected by any of matter's characteristics. Given that He is infinite, He will exist for all eternity, existed in the infinite past, and is unaffected by time and space. This fact is stressed in the Qur'an, as follows:

Everyone on it will pass away; but the Face of your Lord will remain, Master of Majesty and Generosity. ( Surat ar-Rahman, 26-27)





MUSLIM SOLIDARITY BEING IMPROVED

What He Said

SUUD 1 TV, April 23-2008

Adnan Oktar: I WANT MUSLIMS TO LOVE AND BE BROTHERS TO ONE ANOTHER, with no discrimination between sects, or whether someone happens to be a Hanefi, Sunni, Shafii, or whatever. We believe in the same Allah, in the same prophet and face the same direction in prayer. We love the same prophets and the same angels, and our everything is more or less the same, so building walls and even enmity between us on the basis of minor details merely serves the interests of satan. There must be no such thing. We are all, inshaAllah, sincere Muslims, genuine brothers.



What Happened

Milli Gazete, June 26-2008

Sectarian conflict helps the enemy





The Prophet Muhammad




The Prophet Muhammad (saas) was an example to all humanity with his morality, to which he called on mankind to live by. The aim of this site is to introduce various characteristics of the Prophet Muhammad (saas) and how he behaved under particular conditions, because a Muslim needs to try to emulate his noble morality in every aspect of life. Allah confirms that in a verse:

You have an excellent model in the Messenger of Allah, for all who put their hope in Allah and the Last Day and remember Allah much. (Surat al-Ahzab: 21)






The unprecedented style and the superior wisdom inherent in the Qur’an is conclusive evidence confirming that it is the Word of God. Apart from this, there are a number of miracles verifying its Divine nature, one of them being that, 1,400 years ago, it declared a number of scientific facts that have only been established thanks to the technological breakthroughs of the 20th century. In this book, in addition to the scientific miracles of the Qur’an, you will also find messages regarding history and mathematics.





Who Established the Hierarchical Order in the Genes?

Certain genes have the ability to control others. For example, some "control" genes halt the gene that manufactures haemoglobin during childhood.

This fact requires careful reflection. Since genes are made up of molecules, how did these molecules set up such an organization among themselves? How can a molecule decide to halt a human being's growth and to transmit that decision to others, and how do those other molecules understand that signal and act upon it? From whom did those disciplined orders originate?

Moreover, trillions of genes have been flawlessly performing these functions with the same discipline, obedience, reason and apparent intent for millions of years. To claim that such an immaculate system came into being by chance is utterly nonsensical.
