The works of this author have been translated into French, German, Italian, Russian, Albanian,

of the moral teachings of the Qur'an, the existence of the hereafter and the lie of Darwinism.
Harun Yahya, who has written his works in order to spread the message of the Qur'an to the whole
world and to encourage people to think about matters of faith, such as the existence of God and His Oneness,
aims to make them easily accessible to everyone. With this purpose in mind, Internet sites have been opened

THE WORKS OF HARUN YAHYA
4. About The Author
T he author, who writes under the pen-name HARUN YAHYA, was
born in Ankara in 1956. Having completed his primary and sec-
ondary education in Ankara, he then studied arts at Istanbul’s Mimar
Sinan University and philosophy at Istanbul University. Since the 1980s,
the author has published many books on political, faith-related and sci-
entific issues. Harun Yahya is well-known as an author who has written
very important works disclosing the imposture of evolutionists, the in-
validity of their claims and the dark liaisons between Darwinism and
bloody ideologies such as fascism and communism.
His pen-name is made up of the names "Harun" (Aaron) and
"Yahya" (John), in memory of the two esteemed prophets who fought
against lack of faith. The Prophet’s seal on the cover of the author’s
books has a symbolic meaning linked to the their contents. This seal
represents the Qur’an, the last Book and the last word of God, and our
Prophet, the last of all the prophets. Under the guidance of the Qur’an
and Sunnah, the author makes it his main goal to disprove each one of
the fundamental tenets of godless ideologies and to have the "last
word", so as to completely silence the objections raised against reli-
gion. The seal of the Prophet, who attained ultimate wisdom and moral
perfection, is used as a sign of his intention of saying this last word.
All these works by the author centre around one goal: to convey
the message of the Qur’an to people, thus encouraging them to think
about basic faith-related issues, such as the existence of God, His unity
and the hereafter, and to display the decrepit foundations and per-
verted works of godless systems.
Harun Yahya enjoys a wide readership in many countries, from
India to America, England to Indonesia, Poland to Bosnia, and Spain to
Brazil. Some of his books are available in English, French, German,
Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Urdu, Arabic, Albanian, Russian, Serbo-
Croat (Bosnian), Polish, Malay, Uygur Turkish, and Indonesian, and
they have been enjoyed by readers all over the world.
Greatly appreciated all around the world, these works have been
instrumental in many people putting their faith in God and in many oth-
ers gaining a deeper insight into their faith. The wisdom, and the sin-
cere and easy-to-understand style employed give these books a distinct
touch which directly strikes any one who reads or examines them.
Immune to objections, these works are characterised by their features
5. of rapid effectiveness, definite results and irrefutability. It is unlikely
that those who read these books and give a serious thought to them
can any longer sincerely advocate the materialistic philosophy, athe-
ism and any other perverted ideology or philosophy. Even if they con-
tinue to advocate, this will be only a sentimental insistence since these
books have refuted these ideologies from their very basis. All contem-
porary movements of denial are ideologically defeated today, thanks to
the collection of books written by Harun Yahya.
There is no doubt that these features result from the wisdom and
lucidity of the Qur’an. The author certainly does not feel proud of him-
self; he merely intends to serve as a means in one’s search for God’s
right path. Furthermore, no material gain is sought in the publication of
Considering these facts, those who encourage people to read
these books, which open the "eyes" of the heart and guide them in be-
coming more devoted servants of God, render an invaluable service.
Meanwhile, it would just be a waste of time and energy to propa-
gate other books which create confusion in peoples’ minds, lead man
into ideological chaos, and which, clearly have no strong and precise
effects in removing the doubts in peoples’ hearts, as also verified from
previous experience. It is apparent that it is impossible for books de-
vised to emphasize the author’s literary power rather than the noble
goal of saving people from loss of faith, to have such a great effect.
Those who doubt this can readily see that the sole aim of Harun
Yahya’s books is to overcome disbelief and to disseminate the moral
values of the Qur’an. The success, impact and sincerity this service has
attained are manifest in the reader’s conviction.
One point needs to be kept in mind: The main reason for the con-
tinuing cruelty and conflict, and all the ordeals the majority of people
undergo is the ideological prevalence of disbelief. These things can
only come to an end with the ideological defeat of disbelief and by en-
suring that everybody knows about the wonders of creation and
Qur’anic morality, so that people can live by it. Considering the state of
the world today, which forces people into the downward spiral of vio-
lence, corruption and conflict, it is clear that this service has to be pro-
vided more speedily and effectively. Otherwise, it may be too late.
It is no exaggeration to say that the collection of books by Harun
Yahya have assumed this leading role. By the Will of God, these books
will be the means through which people in the 21st century will attain
the peace and bliss, justice and happiness promised in the Qur’an.

able to do so easily, and at absolutely no charge.

"BOOKS BY HARUN YAHYA ARE BASICALLY A MEANS OF BRINGING
THE MESSAGE OF QURAN THROUGH SCIENTIFIC METHODS"
T he way today’s society is declining is felt by every compassion-
ate and sensible person. Due to this moral decline the social
peace is ruined and it brings a direct impact on the social stability. Every
wise person thinks and tries to improve this situation.
The books by Harun Yahya which I have read (For Men of
Understanding, Perished Nations,The Truth of the Life of This World,
Evolution Deceit) reveal that he is a person who has the compassion for
this nation. Books by Harun Yahya are basically a means of bringing the
message of Quran through scientific methods.
The word Islam is derived from "Salama" which means peace and
through Quran the education of peace is being given to the whole human-
ity. The matter of Harun Yahya’s books revolve around these basic teach-
ings. In my opinion the books of Harun Yahya are a means of improving the
character and morality in the society and a
source of bringing peace.
In any society it is the duty of every re-
sponsible citizen to improve the character
and morality of the people. The books by
Harun Yahya are a big step in connection
with the service of the nation and country.
As a journalist these are some of my com-
ments on the books by Harun Yahya...

"I SHOWED SOME OF HARUN YAHYA'S WRITINGS TO MANY UNIVERSITY
PROFESSORS AND STUDENTS IN USA, THEY WERE VERY MUCH IMPRESSED"
A s a professor of biological sciences, and a scholar who was
trained all my life at the American University in Beirut, and then
from the University of Illinois, USA, I was fascinated and very much impressed
with the writings of Professor Harun Yahya. The number of books and videos
that he has written and translated is beyond imagination.
I wish to congratulate Turkey and the people of Turkey for having a pro-
fessor and a scholar like Dr. Harun Yahya. Moreover, I wish to congratulate the
government of Turkey for having a professor of this nature.
If Turkey wishes to be recognized internationally, his name should be
submitted for the King of Faisal Award, and to the committee of Nobel Prize
winners. He deserves to be appreciated for his contributions in the field of bi-
ological sciences. In so doing, Turkey will be among the leading countries in
having some of its scholars being in the front lines internationally.
I, as an American citizen, who have al-
ready published 52 books and booklets, am
so much impressed with his writings. I also
showed some of his writings to many univer-
sity professors and students in USA. They
were very much impressed, and they want
the rest of his writings to be distributed
worldwide. God bless Turkey and all.

"HARUN YAHYA TAKES US ON A REMARKABLE TRIP THROUGH THE
SIGNS IN THE HEAVENS AND ON THE EARTH"
O f the books by Harun Yahya which I have read "For Men of
Understanding", "Allah is Known Through Reason" and "The
Truth of the Life of this World" stand out as powerful treaties on the
proofs of God in the Universe. Harun Yahya’s scholarship proves fasci-
nating and his style of writing infinitely readable. His books have a
great impact because of the clarity and logic with which they make
Quoting the verses of Quran and sources as diverse as Bertrand
Russell and Lenin, Harun Yahya takes us on a remarkable trip through the
signs in the heavens and on the earth. The author’s approach to Quranic
wisdom is scientific. One of the remarkable aspects of his writings is his
copious illustration of Quranic teachings with examples which are scien-
tifically verifiable facts of nature.
16. It is one of the ironies of life that man may
observe nature right from his birth, but he sel-
dom experiences a sense of awe in contemplat-
ing it. Though even the tiniest example in
nature is enough to testify to the greatness of
God, people often remain unaware of this.
Harun Yahya’s books, such as "The Miracle of
Ant", "The Miracle of the Spider", etc. perform a
great service both to the unenlightened and to
the cause of religion by bringing out this reality
in an excellent, easily comprehensible and con-
vincing manner. Allah is Known Through Reason

the greatest and most essential of human ob-
jectives is to recognize and interpret the nu-
merous signs of Allah scattered not only throughout the entire universe, but also
within our own selves.
He writes about this subject in such a compelling way-the text also en-
livened with beautiful pictures-that the whole idea comes alive, leaving a lasting
impression on the reader’s mind. The reader,
induced to think deeply about the hidden
truths of nature, ultimately experiences an in-
crease in his or her faith.

the good works that he is doing and give him
good health and a long life. And, God willing,

"HARUN YAHYA'S EVOLUTION DECEIT IS THE SCIENTIFIC,
INTELLECTUAL AND ACADEMIC DEATH BLOW TO CHARLES
DARWIN'S THEORY OF EVOLUTION"
The Evolution Deceit demonstrates with evidence that
the idea of evolution is a materialist dogma. It has been
translated into many languages.
H arun Yahya’s Evolution Deceit is the scientific, intellec-
tual and academic death blow to Charles Darwin’s the-
ory of evolution, a theory which has been largely discredited by
scientific advances in the fields of physics, chemistry and genet-
ics, among others. The book is thoroughly researched and
As Harun Yahya explains, the theory of evolution does not limit it-
self to the field of biology; rather, it has socio-political, economic,
religious, scientific, and ethical repercussions and effects [in] all
spheres of life. The author explains that the objective of evolution-
ism is to destroy the belief in God, the Creator, in accordance with
the agenda of materialist atheists. Evolution Deceit is particularly
important as it exposes the hidden agenda of the evolutionists. It
becomes evident that as a thesis, as a philosophy, but most of all as
an ideology, the theory of evolution is intrinsically evil.
18. Until the publication of Evolution Deceit, the theory of evolu-
tion was often challenged on moral, ethical, and religious grounds
based on theological speculation. This contributed to the impres-
sion that evolutionism was a "scientific fact" well above "religious
myths" which were the object of ridicule. Harun Yahya’s work,
however, gives a fatal blow to evolutionism, exposing its falsehood
on the basis of science. It becomes evident that evolutionism is
nothing more than an atheistic dogma with no scientific basis
whatsoever. As a result of Harun Yahya’s extensive research, the
myth of evolution crumbles to the ground in utter ruin. Using the
same unquestionable scientific rigor he used to discredit evolu-
tionism, the author demonstrates that Almighty God, Allah, cre-
ated everything, which exists.

"THE BOOK IS FILLED WITH AMAZING FACTS AND LOGICAL
EXPLANATIONS AND ATTRACTIVE PICTURES, WRITTEN IN A LANGUAGE
THAT IS NOT CONFUSING BUT COMFORTING AND SATIATING"
I had heard about Harun Yahya for quite some time, but it was
only a few months ago I came to realize the greatness and
painstaking scholarship of this marvelous writer, when the Imam of the
Islamic Center, Sheikh Hamid Abu Malek Slimi, gave me a copy of his book
"The Evolution Deceit" as a gift. The Imam whetted my curiosity saying
"when you start reading this book, you wouldn’t put it away until you had
finished reading it in its entirety". It transpired that the Imam is an ardent
reader of Harun’s works and said that Harun’s books would make the
Muslim youth growing up in the West, proud to be Muslims.
After I finished reading the book, I reminisced the days of my youth with
much sadness, as I had spent many years wondering if in fact God existed. I
had searched for an answer in other religions as well, especially Christianity,

ney brought me no enlightenment, until

"HARUN YAHYA'S BOOKS MAKE MANKIND REFLECT ON THE
WORDS OF THE GOD"
I In the Qur’an, it teaches the believers to call to Islam with wis-
dom and fair preaching, to call others to worship The Living
god and not to ascribe partners in worship with Him. Harun’s books
clearly does this. He uses The Qur’an and Science to reach the people’s
intellect, to make them ponder and reflect on the verses of The Qur’an. I
have come across only a few books of this magnitude, which reach the
heart as well as the intellect. Not just by words only, but giving a visual
Many of us read but cannot envision or imagine what we read. But
when you have pictures along with the words, it reaches the heart as well
as the mind. The God tells mankind in innumerous verses, to look at the
sun, the moon, the earth, animals and even ourselves, for there are signs in
all of these things for those who reflect and ponder. So, Harun is clearly
doing that which The God commands.
22. Books by Harun Yahya encourage people to consider the miracles of
creation, from the smallest matter on earth to the perfect systems in
In my opinion, Harun’s books make mankind reflect on the words of
The God. Reflect on His Greatness and Omnipotence. That which science
tries to explain away, Harun uses to
show that One with complete
Knowledge and Wisdom creates all that
exists. The All Knowing, The All Wise,
The All Powerful, All Seeing, All
Hearing Lord and Creator.
May The God continually bless
and enrich Harun Yahya in his work.
May The God grant him the best in

hereafter. He is truly one who calls
to the worship of The God.

"HARUN YAHYA'S BOOKS ARE REFRESHING TO READ"
SUBJECT: Overview of the following books by Harun Yah-
The Evolution Deceit
The Truth of the Life of this World
For Men of Understanding
When the first book by Harun Yahya was published in the UK, it
was read avidly by a wide readership, who excitedly anticipated the re-
lease of the subsequent books published by Taha Publishers.
Their popularity is surely due to the fact that within the framework
of Islam they address many subjects: archaeology, biology, chemistry,
natural history, paleontology and sociology are but a few. They are ref-
reshing to read, in that the author has cleverly managed to escape the
narrow confines of modern religious expression. In other words, the bo-
oks reflect the fact that Islam does in fact talk about all subjects, both
"worldly" and "spiritual".
In the past, the Muslim World flourished on account of this unders-
tanding, and made great leaps in the fields of scientific discovery, medi-
cine, astronomy, engineering, etc. They were spurred on by religious
conviction and the commandment to seek knowledge.
Harun Yahya has succeeded in putting the love of the Creator and
an appreciation of the created world back into the sciences, as the star-
ting point for any field of endeavor. As such, his books help to inject new
energy into the pursuit of knowledge, to carry forward all branches of
learning into the 21st century.
38. This is not only a source of pride, but equally a source of enco-
uragement to the younger generation.
I can honestly say that I have found in these books nothing inf-
lammatory or opposed to the common good. However, to claim that
they are perfect would be a foolish assertion. The only book in the
history of the world that contains no errors is the Qur’an itself. As
for the books by Harun Yahya, what is clearly manifest is the aut-
hor’s intention, which is simply to
highlight the wisdom and advice of
the Qur’an and draw attention to
certain undisputed facts, such as
the existence of Allah, the tran-
sitory nature of creation, life and
death, the secrets of the past and
mechanisms of nature.

"THIS IS PROBABLY THE MOST IMPORTANT BOOK PUBLISHED BY ANY
ISLAMIC PUBLISHER FOR MANY YEARS"
I have now had the opportunity to look through"The Evolution Deceit".
Without having had the time to read the book from cover to cover, I
can see that this is probably the most important book published by any Islamic
Publisher for many years. I am not sure how far our fellow Muslims understand
the threat which evolutionary theory poses to religious faith, but this theory
has done more than anything else to destroy belief in God among Westerners. I
think that many educated Muslims simply take the theory for granted without
fully considering its implications. What the author of this marvellous book has
done is to bring together, in a very readable way, all the latest evidence (often
derived from evolutionary scientists) which undermines the whole theory.
I should be grateful for a review copy. I
shall in any case have to purchase two or three
more copies for friends. I have for example a
friend living in Cairo, an English Muslim of my
age who nominally accepted Islam many
years ago, but who told me recently in a letter
that he cannot really "believe" because he ac-
cepts totally the theory of evolution and
cannot reconcile this with the faith of Islam.
It has seemed almost like a small miracle
that "The Evolution Deceit" has turned up
at this very moment.
I congratulate you warmly on having
published the book. In fact I feel that I
owe you a debt of thanks for doing so.

A fter reading many of the books produced by Harun Yah-

lars of Islam around the world to take a closer look at these remarkable
works. There is no doubt in my mind that these are the very tools ne-
eded to bring the people at large around to the correct way of thinking.
If anyone could read the material presented in such a clear and concise
manner and then reflect upon it seriously, they would have to conclude
that the evidences provided leave no room for dispute of any kind.

the evidences provi-
ded by Harun Yah-

"FOR A YOUNG PERSON, READING THE WORKS OF HARUN
YAHYA OPENS SEEMINGLY CLOSED DOORS"
T he works of Harun Yahya are indeed a great contribution to the
reshaping of thinking and understanding of the world around us.
Our belief in Allah and His Oneness becomes that much more power-
ful, relevant and invigorating when it is the product of a vigorous mental ex-
ercise in which logic and reasoning are applied. This kind of mental effort is
in compliance with exhortations found in the Holy Quraan. Man is required
to think, ponder and deliberate the universe and his own existence within
Islam is distinguished by the fact that we must not only be at peace
with others but also with ourselves. This is the necessary effect of a
Muslim’s total submission to the Will of Allah.
For a young person reading the
works of Harun Yahya opens seem-
ingly closed doors showing that
there is hope and many wonders
ahead by understanding and appre-
ciating the wonders of Allah’s cre-
ation within and around us.

"MANY OF THE WORKS OF HARUN YAHYA BRING OUT THE
HIDDEN CONCEPTS OF SCIENCE IN QUR'AN"
H arun Yahya has done a monumental task of conducting analy-
sis of numerous Qur’anic concepts while challenging western
philosophies that appear to confront them. In many instances comes out
bold to challenge western writers through his logical arguments on the
basis of Qur’anic concepts. The selected examples of his facing such chal-
lenges are the concepts of evolution, relativity, and timelessness.
In relativity and timelessness he builds numerous examples, based on
Qur’anic concepts, in explaining the concepts of relativity through exam-
ples of the differentiated operation periods of the entire system of material
existence. He then goes on to explain that the concept of time depends on
the perception of a given instance or an event. He thus goes on to accept the
challange of the Qur’an to all its readers to constantly think and attempt to
understand the various signs of Allah (Subhana Wa Ta’ala).
Many of the works of Harun
Yahya bring out the hidden concepts
of science in Qur’an through criti-
cally review signs of Allah through
direct references to various cre-
ations in Nature. This is what is ex-
actly needed to convince the
young mind in particular about the
depth in which the Qur’an is
brought to them.

"HARUN YAHYA IS A DIFFERENT AUTHOR WHO CAN EXERT LASTING
IMPACT ON THE MINDS OF THOSE WHO ARE IN SEARCH OF TRUTH"
H arun Yahya is exceptionally a great advocate of ALLAH’s signs in
the Universe. His scholarly works in this area have made great im-
pact in the world of science and reason. His main focus is to show that the con-
cept of materialism is not only repugnant to human logic but also have no
scientific grounds. Haroon Yahya, thoroughly examines the universe and what
exists therein, from logical and scientific point of view and presents his argu-
ments based on current scientific knowledge and irrefutably proves that the
Universe has a beginning and therefore is created by ALLAH.
He examines all elements of the subject and tests all possibilities with
logic and science and draws highly convincing conclusions. All his works I
have read are the treasure of information and an example of his powerful but
simple style without any prejudices.
Being a humble student of the Qur’an, I
was enlightened by his writings a great deal.
I have the honour of reading some of his
books like "Evolution Deceit; The Creation
of the Universe; Allah is Known Through
Reason; For Men of Understanding."
I will advise every conscientious
Muslim to read his books to find that
Harun Yahya is a different author who

HARUN YAHYA HAS ADDED A NEW CHAPTER TO THE ISLAMIC LITERATURE
M any people had been observing an apple falling down from a
tree to the ground, however it was only Newton who had the
capacity to think, discover and define the laws of gravity as result of this ob-
servation. In Quraan it has been said time and again to "think" on various as-
pects of His creations. However it is only few who have thought about
Allah’s creations and could find His "miracles" and the proof of His exis-
tence. There had been some efforts by scholars particularly the Muslim
scholars in this direction but Harun Yahya has given it a new direction. I can
confidently say that he has added a new chapter to the Islamic literature.
Religion has always been considered in opposition to science. Even today
there are many schools of thought who consider religion and science not in
congruence with each other. Unfortunately some Muslim "scholars" have also
fallen victim of this propaganda. However Islam is the only religion, which has
considered science as part and parcel of its belief. Religion has been ex-
pressed, propagated and advocated by Muslim scholars in different ways.
However there had been little effort in explaining religion in light of the cre-
62. ations of Allah, be it living or non-living. In Quraan it has been said time and
again to "think" and "ponder" on various aspects of the universe.
When I read and study various writings of Harun Yahya the basis ap-
pears to be one word of the Holy Quraan i.e. "Yathafakkaroon" which has
been repeated more than a dozen times and means -- "think". His writings are
so appealing thought provoking that one is compelled to start thinking about
his creator and the creator of the universe. It also makes you think about the
reason of creation of human beings and the universe. It clarifies that scien-
tific discoveries are revealing more and more "proofs" of the Truth of Islam.
There is nothing in science which is contradictory to Islam. In fact every new
scientific understanding is revealing the secrets of the "creations" of Allah
and thus is a source of strength for our "belief".
The books of Harun Yahya cover a wide variety of subjects. On one
hand it makes you ponder on the miracles in human body (like "miracles in
Immune system" and "miracles in the eye") while the other he makes you
think about the harmony and secrets in Universe (like "creation of the uni-
verse" and "miracles in the atom").
He has very effectively challenged all aspects of "Darwinism" and has
undoubtedly thrashed his theory of evolution with reasons and facts, also ex-
posing the forgery committed by the "scholars" propagating Darwinism.
He is a writer, who has looked at Islam from a new angle and expressed it
very effectively based on scientific evidence and reasons. In medical liter-
ature we have "evidence based medicine". Harun Yahya has exactly done
the same and produced "evidence based Islam". The evidence has been
gathered and produced from "nature" and the everlasting laws, which are
operating in nature since Allah created it.
May Allah give him the reward of his efforts on "The Day After". Our
duty is, to at least study and strengthening his thoughts by propagating and
supporting this new addition to the Muslim literature.

"HARON YAHYA'S WORKS ARE WELL-READ THROUGH THE WORLD AND MANY
PEOPLE ARE MOVED AND HAVE 'SURRENDERED TO THE WILL OF GOD'"
T he world is in the midst of crisis. Human beings are facing multitude
of crisis because of their rejection of God and His system. The world-
wide socio-economic and environment problems, moral degradation and spiri-
tual crisis are some of the manifestations of the rejection. Ever since science
detached itself from the Islamic root and follow the agnostic and atheistic sys-
tem of the West, it created more problems than benefit. Science with the west-
ern perspectives strengthened the ancient Greek doctrine of materialism which
led to the formulation of various atheistic philosophies. Human beings were
misled into following these philosophies such as utilitarianism, hedonism, indi-
vidualism, fascism and many others which trapped the people into the endless
problems and miseries. Is there any glimpse of hope that humanity could be
saved from the oblivion? Yes if human being accepts God and His system.
Haron Yahya’s works have contributed to this glimpse of hope for the sal-
vation of humanity. Haron’s works are well-read through the world and many
people are moved and have "surrendered to the will of God". The books on sci-
ence and the Quran and other related topics written by Haron have demolished
the notion that empiricism is the only trustworthy and believable source of
knowledge. The Qur’an which ever since its revelation has "mesmerized" multi-
tude of people, such as al-Walid bin Mughairah, the Arabian noble laureate, and
Omar Khattab, for its language, eloquence, and yet again at this modern age, the
Qur’an has shown its miracles in terms of science. Haron’s work in this topic is
very much commendable and should be
read by those who aspire to know Islam
and its teaching.

With their easygoing and fluent style, Harun Yahya’s books that have
been translated into Russian are easily understandable by both scholars
and lay readers. They are therefore very popular among Russian people.
These books further constitute a rich and beneficial source of information
for university and high school students. It will be a great success for the fu-

T he Middle Path is a monthly magazine that publishes articles
on science, faith and politics. Published in the UK, it carries
various articles by Harun Yahya. It referred to Harun Yahya on the
cover of its December 2000 edition, under the headline "Harun Yahya
on Islam and Science." The same edition carried Harun Yahya’s article
"In Every Age There Existed An Ignorant Society." In the light of verses
from the Qur’an, this article analyzes
those ignorant societies that have no
knowledge of Islamic morality.
82. "Harun Yahya is a well known writer from Istanbul who has written nu-
merous books and articles on Islam, which includes the marvels of Allah's
creations, the evolution theory, and politics. His articles have been pub-
lished, not only in Turkey, but in other countries as well. His study aims
to convey the message of the Qur'an, and to encourage people to think on
issues such as the existence and the unity of God, and the Hereafter."

Another article that appeared in In "The Expansion of the

84. In Harun Yahya’s "Common Material, Design and Designer," which
appeared in the August 2000 issue of the magazine, the latest develop-
ments in the Genome Project were discussed. The following is an ex-
tract from the article:
"The recent completion of the human gene map within the scope of the
Human Genome Project is an important scientific development.
However, some results of this project are being distorted in some evo-
lutionist publications. It is claimed that the genes of chimpanzees are
98% similar to human genes, and this is presented as an evidence for
the claim that apes are close to humans, and therefore, logical ances-
tors of humans as claimed by Darwin's theory of evolution. The ar-
gument is misleading… The claim of 98% similarity is deceptive. To
claim that the genetic make-ups of man and chimpanzee bear 98%
similarity to each other the genome of the chimpanzee also has to be
mapped just as that of man and the two have to be compared.
However no such comparison results are available, because, so far,
only the gene of the human has been mapped. No such research for the
chimpanzee has been done yet. …Darwinists are distorting the results
of the Human Genome Project. Life did not originate as a result of
unconscious coincidences as evolution
claims, but as the result of the creation of
Allah, the Almighty, the Owner of infinite
knowledge and wisdom."

A number of Harun Yahya’s articles have appeared in the
American monthly magazine Getting Back to Qu’ran and the
Sunnah. "The World and the Hereafter," published in the fourth edition,
says that God created this world as a temporary place where believers
are tested. The article "Solution: Morals of the Qur’an", which appeared
in the eighth edition of the magazine, relates that in the Qur’an, there is
no discrimination between human beings based on sex or material
wealth. A person’s status is determined by his piety and closeness to
God. In another edition of the magazine, an article by Harun Yahya enti-
tled "The Moral Values of the Qur’an" discussed worshipping God in the
best way and the behavior appropriate to a believer.
88. USA - Aftab
A ftab is the magazine of the New York University Students’
union. It has also published various articles by Harun
Yahya. Its December-January, 2001, issue carried an article by Harun
Yahya entitled "The Signs in the Heaven and the Earth." This article
says that everything, from the smallest piece of matter to the immense
galaxies that contain millions of stars, works according to an order,
and that this order is under the control of God. In the February-March,
2001, issue of the magazine, an article entitled "The Expansion of the
Universe" presented a discussion, based on scientific evidence and ob-
servation, of the fact that God created the universe from nothing.
The author, Haroon Yahya, has published numerous books and booklets ex-
plicitly proving the existence of Allah, emphasizing the marvelous creation of
Allah against the materialistic and atheistic ideologies, and of course their
most efficient and significant view: the Evolution Theory. Harun Yahya is well
known throughout the world and his organization was gracious enough to
contribute articles as well as books for our Islamic Center.

1999, issue contains an article enti-
tled "Philosophies that Made the
Mistake of Denying Allah," which dis-
cusses those scientists who deny the
existence of God even though they
have closely observed the clear evidence for it; The May-June, 2000,
92. issue contained an article entitled "A New World," in which some
prejudices with regard to religion are dealt with. It says that religion
is not only the concern of the elderly, but of the whole of society and
that when man comes to know God, Who created him, he will be
saved from the false idea that religion is to be avoided; The July-
August, 2000, issue carries an article called "Pondering on the
Qur’an;" The September-October, 2000, issue published an article en-
titled "Darwinists are distorting the results of the Human Genome
Project: THE APE-MAN SIMILARITY IS A TALE!". This article shows
clearly that human beings did not evolve from apes but were created

fect balance so that human beings could live in it most com-

96. Pak›stan - Rena›ssance
H arun Yahya’s "Pondering on the Qur’an" appeared in the
September, 2000, issue of this English-language magazine
published in Pakistan. Below is an extract from that article:
"Therefore, what is needed in the first place is to correct the wrong
point of view about the Qur'an and make people understand that the
Qur'an is not a book which is addressed only to the Prophet (sws) but
to all people who consider themselves Muslims. Any person who ut-
ters this statement: "I'm a Muslim, alhamdulillah" must read the
Qur'an and try to understand the meaning of the verses. In the Qur'an,
the importance of learning verses and reciting them are especially em-
...Some people believe that the Qur'an addresses only Muslims of the
7th century and some others think that only a small part of the verses
addresses people other than the Muslims of the 7th century. A person
having such an approach gets satisfied with reading the Qur'an and
thinks he fulfils his religious duties by doing so. However, this is not
only a matter of learning what is inside of the Qur'an, but also put-
ting them into practice, fulfilling the duties ordered in the Qur'an,
adapting moral standards explained in the Qur'an; briefly, bringing
the Qur'an into one's own everyday life."
97. Pak›stan - Albalagh
T he August, 1999, issue of the monthly magazine Albalagh, pub-
lished in Pakistan, carried Harun Yahya’s article "Hell." Here is
a paragraph from that article:
"As many beauties and blessings there are in Paradise, that much ug-
liness and torment Hell is full with. Those who have denied Allah as
their Creator are punished with an endless penalty in Hell. ...The com-
mon characteristic of the unbelievers who deserve Hell is their rejec-
tion when they have been invited to religion."
The March, 2000, issue published Harun Yahya’s "The Expansion of
the Universe," and in the April, 2000, issue an article entitled "About the
Rain" appeared. This article uses scientific discoveries and relevant
verses from the Qur’an to show that every year the same amount of rain
falls on the earth and that the stages in the formation of rain correspond
to the Qur’an. "Past Civilizations," serialized in the May and June, 2000,
issues gives an account of some of the destructive events suffered by
98. Mr. Adnan Oktar writing under the pen name of Harun Yahya is a well known
writer from Istanbul.
He has written a number of books conveying the message of the Qur'an in the
light of contemporary knowledge. His books "Evolution Deceit," "Perished
Nations" and "Allah Is Known Through Reason" are irrefutable documents against
materialistic theories… His approach is scientific, simple and straight forward.

those who denied God and ascribed partners to Him. An article by
Harun Yahya entitled "Righteous Deeds" appeared in the August, 2000,
issue. With reference to the Qur’an, the article maintains that believ-
ers must do righteous deeds.
In the September, 2000, issue, the article "Pondering" led readers to
ponder on the proofs of God’s existence in the universe. An article de-
scribing human creation, "The Mechanisms in our Body," appeared in

T he magazine, published every four months, also carried Harun

passage to the article written by the editor of the magazine:
"Allah Ta'ala created the first human being, Hazrath Adam (A.S.), from
sand. This was the beginning of human species. The Qur'an has de-
clared this in several places. However, western scientists are still at
pains to try and prove that their forefather was an ape. In their quest
to fool others into believing the fallacy of evolution, they resort to
the most deceptive means."

Oxygen, a gas that is vital for living beings, helps food to be
burned and converted into energy in our bodies.
If the oxygen quantity in the atmosphere were greater than 21%,
the cells in our body would soon start to suffer great damages.
The vegetation and hydrocarbon molecules needed for life would
106. also be destroyed. If this quantity were less, then this would
cause difficulties in our respiration, and the food we eat would
not be converted into energy. Therefore, the 21% of oxygen in the
atmosphere is the most ideal quantity determined for life."
In the November 2001 - February 2002 edition of the journal, a
review of Harun Yahya’s The Creation of the Universe was pub-
lished. That review said:
"In this world of modern science where old beliefs and values
are fast eroding, Harun Yahya's book is like a textbook. A must
for all our boys and girls who today are seeking knowledge all
over the world and being indoctrinated into the scientific world
where Allah does not exist."

I qra is the magazine of the South Bay Islamic Organization

icated to weaving the universal teachings of Islam into the fabric of
American society. Harun Yahya’s article published in the April, 2002,
issue of the magazine was titled "In Every Age There Existed an
Ignorant Society". An extract from the article reads:
From the time man was created, there have always been two distinct
societies: the ignorant society and the community of believers. All
those who fail to observe the limits set by religion, constitute the ig-
norant society. Despite discrepancies in beliefs, thoughts and ways
of living, one fundamental rationale lays the groundwork for the life
of all ignorant societies: not to adhere to true religion.
Harun Yahya is a regular contributor of this magazine.

Harun Yahya’s articles published in this newspaper address
faith-related and political topics. The article titled "Evaluating
Everything From the Point of View of the Qur’an" maintains that
everything takes place in accordance with the destiny Allah has
determined, and that therefore everything has a purpose. What
believers should do, according to the author, is to interpret each
event in the light of the Qur’an and react in the way the Qur’an

T he Muslims’ Digest is a
monthly magazine of social
topics that concern Muslims. This
English-language magazine deepens
its readers’ awareness of questions
concerning belief and science by
publishing articles by Harun Yahya
on these issues. In its May, 2000,

Existence of Allaah," which says that
when a person looks at the world he
finds God in every detail, and that
God holds everything under His con-

111. Poland - The Musl›m world rev›ew
I n the April, 1999, issue of this magazine, an article was car-
ried entitled "Co-operation Between Animals and Plants,"
which discussed the life that plants and animals have in common.
Here is an extract from that article:
"..One good example is the pitcher plant (Nepenthes bicalcarata)
that grows in Eastern India. This plant, that is exactly in the shape
of carafe, houses ant colonies in its body. It feeds on insects by seiz-
ing the ones that perch on it, captures them and in the end digests
them. On the other hand, the guest ants have privilege for this car-
nivorous plant. The pitcher plant ignores the existence of ants in an
incomprehensible manner. Truly the ants and the plant have a deal
with each other for their mutual benefit. The ants are under the threat
of being eaten by the plant, nevertheless they have gained a home for
themselves. On the other hand, the plant leaves remnants of some
tissues and insects for the ants and in return, it gains the right to get
protected from its enemies by the ants. This example defines the main
features of symbiosis between the ants and the plant. The anatomy
and physiological structures of the ants and the plant hosting them
are so designed as to provide a mutual relationship. However the
evolutionists claim that such relationship gradually became wide-
spread in millions of years, assuming an obvious illogical thesis that
two living beings lacking intelligence made an agreement and
planned such 'mutual benefit' system-somehow."
In one of its issues, the magazine presented the author Harun
Yahya with an article titled "Who is Adnan Oktar?"
112. Indones›a - D›alog jumat

Harun Yahya articles published in this magazine describes the transi-
tory nature of life in this world:
"...Mortality is surely a grave topic to ponder. Until this moment in
his life, it may well be that the person is unaware of the significance
of this reality. But it is never too late to repent to Allah, and to re-
orient all one's deeds and the conduct of one's life in submission to
the will of Allah. Life is short; the human soul is eternal. During this
short period, one should not allow temporary passions to control
one. A person should resist temptation and keep himself away from
everything that will strengthen his bonds to this world. It is surely
unwise to neglect the next world just for the sake of the temporary
joys of this one...."

It is exceedingly important that true be-

amongst the believers for a long period and informed them about the be-
ginning of creation" (Sahih Bukhari, Book 54, Volume 4, Book 54,
So, a great and important respon-
sibility falls to people of good

ation. One article says:
Water is "just right" for life to a de-
gree that cannot be compared with any
other liquid. The larger part of this
planet, a world whose other attributes
(temperature, light, electromagnetic
spectrum, atmosphere, surface, etc.) are
all suitable for life, has been filled with
just the right amount of water necessary
for life. It should be obvious that this
cannot all be accidental and that there
must instead be intentional design.

(L’Inganno Dell’ Evoluzione) which reads:
"The author demonstrates that the advo-
cates of the materialism have always sup-
ported the idea of evolution even if this
theory has been refuted by scientific facts.
Contrar y the views of evolutionists, the
book proves with evidence that life has been made possible thanks to the
Creator. The signs of an extraordinary wisdom are visible in all living beings,
which evidently reveal the existence of a Creator in whose hands is the gov-
ernment of the entire universe."
The magazine also publishes various articles by Harun Yahya in Italian on
a regular basis.

the Qur’an" states:
In most of the countries where Muslims are
the minority and Arabic is not the spoken lan-
guage, only a small percentage of people know
the content of the Qur'an and ponder on the
Qur'an as required. As a result, people who are ignorant of the real mes-
sage of the Qur'an attribute dif-
ferent meanings to it. Many
people believe some traditions
to have their origin from the
Qur'an, although they may be
contradictory to the very na-
ture of the Quranic message.

of God’s existence in the universe and how discovering these signs make
scientists turn to God. An extract from the article reads:
The attributes of the universe discovered by science point to the exis-
tence of God. Science leads us to the conclusion that the universe has a
Creator and this Creator is perfect in might, wisdom and knowledge. It
is religion that shows us the way in knowing God. It is therefore possi-
ble to say that science is a method we use to better see and investigate
the realities addressed by religion.
In the same issue, the newspaper also gave detailed information

J uldiz, another journal in Kazakh, is
one of the leading magazines of
Kazakhstan. Harun Yahya’s article, published
in the February, 2002, issue, is about the life of
the Prophet Abraham. One part of the article
The prophet Ibrahim is often referred to in
the Qur'an and is distinguished by God as
an example to people. He conveyed the mes-
sage of Allah to his people who worshipped
ideols and he warned them so that they
might fear God. His people did not listen to his warnings but, on the

scientists, such as Einstein, Newton

facts about the flood, which caused the people of Noah to drown.

in living things and the basic tenets of Islam.
153. M edia Coverage
The works of Harun Yahya, written to expose the fallacy of the the-
ory of evolution, have attracted great attention in the foreign press,
and press organizations have devoted a lot of space to them. Some
have printed lectures and books showing how 20th century science
has invalidated the theory, and others have devoted space to reviews
of these books in order to inform their readers that there is no such
process as evolution.
154. USA - Sc›ence
T he influence of Harun Yahya’s books on evolution, and es-
pecially his internationally renowned The Evolution
Deceit, is reflected in the well-known scientific evolutionary maga-
zine Science. In an article in the May 18 edition by Robert Koenig,
entitled "Creationism Takes Root Where Europe, Asia Meet," the
author gives a lengthy account of Harun Yahya’s struggle against
the deception of the theory of evolution, the international success
of his book The Evolution Deceit and of the defeat of evolutionists
in Turkey. The article emphasizes that this broad academic en-
deavor-"One of the world’s strongest anti-evolution movements
outside North America"-aims to cause the collapse of the theory
of evolution on the scientific front, and that it is making inroads in
other Muslim countries. Another topic dealt with in this article is
the international success of The Evolution Deceit. It says that some
evolutionist scientists in Turkey complain that "books by Harun
Yahya such as The Evolution Deceit have become more influential
than textbooks in certain parts
of Turkey". In the article, the
concerns of Turkish evolution-
ists are expressed in these
words "…Many evolutionist
scientists fear they are losing

voted to the works of Harun Yahya dealing with the collapse of the the-
ory of evolution. The cover bears the title, "Islamic Creationism in
Turkey" and gives this introduction:
"... Most representative is Harun Yahya’s text The Evolution Deceit.

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 au -
thored over 100 books since 1986 – a remarkable output indeed for a single person.

issue Harun Yahya’s The Truth of the Life of This
World was discussed. The review by Imtiaz
Adam, the editor of the magazine, reads:
In this fascinating book, Harun Yahya has
written a remarkable and extremely effective
reminder of "the truth of the life of this world". Throughout, the text is
clear and readable and the marshalling and use of Qur'anic ayaat ex-
tremely effective. The book is su-
perbly presented, with numerous
full-colour photographs, illustra-
tions and diagrams, beautifully
designed. This book is one of the
very few that is likely to be con-
vincing to skeptical readers
steeped in western propaganda,
be they Muslim or non-Muslim.
That alone is a very consider-
In the 1-15 April, 2000,

concerning the book to the

such great interest throughout the
world. The review stated:
Harun Yahya's Evolution Deceit is
a scientific, intellectual and aca-
demic deathblow to the modern
theory of evolution... The book is
thoroughly researched and solidly
scientific. The dogmatic defenders
of falsehood, however, will find it
difficult or impossible to digest.

It has published reviews of various books
by Harun Yahya. The review of The Evolution Deceit by Maryam
Jameelah, the American essayist and journalist, reads:
Scientifically, with appropriate illustrations, the author proves that each
organism of every species was Divinely created perfect and complete from
its very inception with everything required for a successful life.
Ruqaiyyah Waris Maqsood, the renowned Islamic writer, recommends
books to young

lowing in her
review of Deep
of The Muslim
162. Harun Yahya has put together a vast
range of books which tackle the very
subjects that have bothered me, and
for that, I am sure many similar stu-
dents will take great benefit. The
style of the books is not that of dry
academia, but is readable and
straightforward, so that even
youngsters can study and benefit
from the thoughts contained
therein. The message is added to
by the many colourful and rele-
vant photographs, which not
only enliven the page but are
also good thought-provokers in
themselves. This is the major function
of the Harun Yahya books, I feel-to widen our consciousness,
give us material to ponder on which we may not have known before, and,
thus, help us to understand a little more of the Greatness and Grace of Allah.

strengthen their beliefs. I appreciate the work you are doing.

Accept my commendation for the very good job you’re doing by chal-
lenging age long scientific "truths"! The first book I read from your series
was "Evolution Deceit". I was in Nigeria then and I could not leave it until I
almost finished the book. It was when I came here to the US that I discov-
ered your website and have downloaded a couple of books from there.
However, I will really like my colleagues back in Nigeria, especially those
in the university environment, to have the opportunity of reading your
books and hopefully, be positively influenced by them. Many of us study-
ing for higher degrees see you as a role model in applying our scientific
knowledge for the progress of Islam.

First of all I would like to appreciate all of your team for doing such a re-
markable job for Islam. May Allah give you all the blessings and accept
your act in the day of judgement. It has guided me and took me out of the
self-deceited concepts. I started taking evolution and materialistic theo-
218. ries as a part of science which were so hard for me to refute due to my lit-
tle knowledge. Allhamdulillah, now I have restablished my faith.

edge in Islam is not that big as it should be.

Aloha from Hawaii! I have been involved in biology for more than thirty
years and agree with your writings. Good work.
ASMAA ALMALIKI / KUWAIT
The Title of your book Allah is known through reasons caught up my
eyes, while I was book shopping one day. I bought it, I loved it. I bought 4
more copies and gave them as gifts to a new Moslem convert of my friends
where I work, and other non Moslems to explore that Islam through logic.
May Allah bless your heart; keep you safe to serve the truth and the word
of Allah subhan watallah.
219. CARLO MARIA MAZZONI / ITALY
Your books are so well-organised and far from personal ideas. This
makes me trust you. When I read something in your book, I am sure that
it is correct. I wish the continuation of your studies.
Excellent job on "Evolution Deceit", I am a Christian yet I still respect
Harun Yahya’s tedious work to disprove evolution.

I have 8 of all harunyahya’VCDs, they are very superb. After seeing them,
I feel that my belief increased and I understood about Allah, The Creator.
And now, in our campus, harunyahya’s VCDs are used for human philosofic

ZUBAIR MOHAMMED / UK
I have read a few books by Harun Yahya including ’The Evolution
Deceit’. The work of the author has removed what little doubts I had
about the evolution theory and opened up a new world of understanding
to my mind. I wish to thank the author for this-keep up the good work. The
work of Harun Yahya is one of the most commonly talked about subject
around where I live.

DR. A SHAKOOR / UK
Brother Yahya it is very valuable to read your article following the re-

JIM / USA
I have learned a lot about Islam since Sept. 11th. I am pleased to see
this website. To do my part as an American citizen I explain to others that
these acts of terror and religion should not be connected. All legitimate

ALI SHAFEEQ / MALDIVES
Instead of concentrating on "Who committed the acts" you have con-
centrated "Why such things are happening".That is great!
224. AHMED MUBALI / USA
Most people think and lives islam in definite times, during the preyars,
ramadan, reading Quran...And they do not remember Quran in other cir-
cumstances. What i see in you is, you do not live islam only in definite
times. But you live islam starting from the time you wake up till you sleep
everyday. And that‘s the right way.
FRED COVONER / SWITZERLAND
Your works are notifying everyone about the reality of Islam. People
would live best if they live islam. People would think their brothers and
sisters before doing something, they would care their brothers and sis-
ters more than they care themselves. You explain these in a brilliant way
in your books. Regards.
SHIMON ZANG / ISRAEL
I am living in Tel Aviv. We, Jewish people, do fell respect to people who
have helped to our brothers in past. As it is written in your site, Ottoman
Empire was land of piece for all religions because Islam advises people to
be fair, peaceful, helpful, conciliative, as those are the values all religions
advise. We are all in the same way believing in the same values. We all are
agains atrocity to blameless people. Congratulations for your hearty

just peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

269. C onclusion
Throughout this book, we have seen the reaction that Harun Yahya’s
works have received around the world and the ever-growing interest in
them. We have seen a few reflections of this great interest in newspapers,
magazines, on Internet sites and in letters from readers.
There are several important reasons for the great influence that these
works have had on those who have read them. First, because of their inti-
mate and attractive style, they can be simply and easily understood by peo-
ple from every walk of life and of every age group. The author has taken the
wisdom and the striking narrative style of the Qur’an as a model for himself.
The second reason must be the variety of his works, that attract the interest
of all sections of society with the importance of their themes. For example,
Harun Yahya’s series of works is not only of importance to those who want
to learn about Islam or deepen their knowledge of the Qur’an, but are also a
source of reference for those who want to have true Qur’an-based knowl-
edge about topics such as the true face of evolution, biology, astronomy,
physics, world and present-day history and international relations.
The basic point about Harun Yahya’s works is that they were written with
only the will of God in mind. They have been prepared without any commer-
cial interest or expectation of profit and as a result their sincerity has an im-
mediate effect on the hearts of their readers.
For this reason, reading these works and introducing and recommending
them to others is a very important service. Anything that can be done in this
direction will be a step towards eliminating the environment of cruelty and
chaos in which the world has become immersed and, with God’s help, this
will eventually happen.
God willing, the works of Harun Yahya will reach an even greater audi-
ence in the 21st century, and will be a means whereby people will be able to
attain that life of well-being, justice and peace that they have longed for
down the years.
270. They said, "Glory be to You! We
have no knowledge except what
You have taught us. You are the
All-Knowing, the All-Wise."
(Qur'an, 2: 32)
