Harun Yahya Islam Global Impact Of The Works Of Harun Yahya Vol 1 Document Transcript

  • 1. Each of Harun Yahya's more than 170 publications on matters of science, faith and politics can change the way a person looks at the world. His scientific books demonstrating the proofs of creation to be seen in the universe, his works about Islamic moral teaching composed with reference to the verses of the Qur'an, and his political books that expose the hidden side of historical events have addressed millions of people of every nation, language and religion. These works have stimulated a wide response throughout the world. Whether in America, Britain, Russia, Kazakhstan, South Africa, Brazil, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, France, Nigeria, Canada or Lebanon, you can find books and magazine and newspaper articles by Harun Yahya in various languages in bookstores in most countries in the world. Documentaries and narrations based on Harun Yahya's works, which are broadcast on many radio and television stations, have also aroused great interest throughout the world. The works of this author have been translated into French, German, Italian, Russian, Albanian, Spanish, Portuguese, Polish, Serbo-Croat, Indonesian, Malay, Urdu, Estonian, Arabic, Swahili and Bengali, and further translations into many other languages are progressing quickly. The purpose of this is to distribute all these books throughout the world in order to inform all people of the existence of God, the beauty 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 that render a great service to thousands of people every day. On these sites, the more than 170 books written by Harun Yahya, complete with their full texts and illustrations, are available free of charge to Internet users, in addition to documentaries and audio narrations. The book, which includes the Internet pages of those Islamic organizations, scientific institutions and various universities where you can find Harun Yahya's works, and reviews written by various scholars or the directors of various leading organizations and institutions, together with an account of the reactions from the fairs and conferences that have presented the author's works covers only a limited amount of material. Indeed, the scale of these reactions has been far greater than might have been expected. ABOUT THE AUTHOR he author, who writes under the pen-name Harun Yahya, was T born in Ankara in 1956. He 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 scientific issues. Some of the books of the author have been translated into more than 20 languages and published in the countries concerned. Harun Yahya’s books appeal to all people, Muslims and non-Muslims alike, regardless of their age, race, and nationality, as they center around one goal: to open the readers’ mind by encouraging them to think about some critical issues such as the existence of God and His unity, and to display the decrepit foundations and perverted works of godless systems.

  • 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 these works. 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.

This is a service rarely found on the Internet. Other book promotion sites introduce the works by giving a short summary or by listing the main headings. Except under exceptional circumstances, the whole text is provided at no cost. However, the Harun Yahya Internet site intends that everyone who wants to access all his works should be able to do so easily, and at absolutely no charge. The purpose of this book is to inform people of the effect that Harun Yahya’s works, from his books to the documentary films based on them, have had throughout the world. The book, which includes the Internet pages of those Islamic organizations, scientific institutions and various universities where you can find Harun Yahya’s works, and reviews written by various scholars or the directors of various leading organizations and institutions, together with an account of the reactions from the fairs and conferences that have presented the author’s works covers only a limited amount of material.

  • 11. Pakistan, Syed Irfan Ahmed "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...

  • 12. God commands justice and doing good and giving to relatives. And He forbids indecency and doing wrong and tyranny. He warns you so that hopefully you will pay heed. (Qur'an, 16:90) 19
  • 13. It is He who made the sea subservient to you so that you can eat fresh flesh from it and bring out from it ornaments to wear. And you see the ships cleaving through it so that you can seek His bounty, and so that hopefully you will show thanks. (Qur'an, 16:14) 20
  • 14. USA, Dr. Ahmad H. Sakr "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. Ameen. Dr. Ahmad H. Sakr, Ph. D. Pres›dent of the Foundat›on For Islam›c Knowledge 21
  • 15. India, Saniyasnain Khan "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 their appeal. 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. 22
  • 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 is one of the books by Harun The author deftly presents facts upon Yahya that leads people to pon - fact, until we reach the conclusion that one of der the proofs of God's existence. 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. We pray that God may reward him for all the good works that he is doing and give him good health and a long life. And, God willing, may his pen never run dry.

  • 17. Argentina, Abu Dharr Manzolillo "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 solidly scientific 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. 24
  • 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. Abu Dharr Manzol›llo Freelance Journal›st and Ed›tor 25
  • 19. Canada, Meer Sahib "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, 26

Hinduism and Buddhism, but this jour- ney brought me no enlightenment, until one day during my math class at the University of Kyoto, Japan, the Theory of Chances was explained and it was as if an electric bulb lit up in my brains... I would rather let the anxious reader imbibe the nectar of this book, which explains far more eloquently than I could, in scientific and logical terms to the enquiring mind, that, without an iota of doubt, God Almighty exists. Today, no one has to go through the agonizing Another striking book by Harun times I went through, trying to get a logi- Yahya on the proofs of God's exis - tence and the quandaries facing the cal, scientific answer to my troubling theory of evolution. quest. The book is filled with amazing facts and logical explanations and attrac- tive pictures, written in a language that is not confusing but comforting and satiat- ing. What’s more, several other master pieces have also taken wings through the pens of Yahya, enriching the modern knowledgebase of Muslims and filling young minds with a treasure trove of in- formation on Science, Islam and many other subjects.

  • 21. USA, Lezia Hill-Harris "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 effect. 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. 28
  • 22. Books by Harun Yahya encourage people to consider the miracles of creation, from the smallest matter on earth to the perfect systems in our bodies. 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 this world, in his grave, and in the hereafter. He is truly one who calls to the worship of The God.

  • 23. Albania, Ramiz Zekaj "NEW BOOKS [BY HARUN YAHYA] ENRICH AIITC LIBRARY" (Albanian Institute of Islamic Thought & Civilisation) L ast times a lot of valuable books from different fields of life and science have enriched the fund of books of AIITC and among them the books of the well-known writer Harun Yahya in English and Turkish. These books are scientific approach to Islam les- sons. Who can read this literature will notice that the author’s out- looks are well based in special surveys, experiments and analysis, result of his long term studies in the respective fields. The books are recently published, 99-2000. Many illustration help to assimilate the problems handled in the books and rise up their func- tional side. 30
  • 24. The content of the books: DEEP THINKING, THE MIRACLE IN THE ANT, PERISHED NATIONS, NEVER PLEAD IGNORANCE etc, have attracted the attention of Albanian readers that evaluate the seriousness of the sci- entific based interpretations of Harun Yahya. For AIITC opinion Islam library thanks to these books enters the new millennium with a special treasure of modern-scientific literature. In this oc- casion AIITC thanks all those persons that have contributed for making this possible and also wishes to the au- thor long life and further successes in his scientific work.

  • 26. Canada, Qasem Mahmud "MR. YAHYA IS QUOTING QURANIC STATEMENTS AND DRAWING THE ATTENTION OF THE READER TO THE FACTS EMBEDDED IN THESE STATEMENTS TO PROVE THE TRUTHFULNESS OF GOD'S MESSAGE, ISLAM" I have read Mr.Harun Yahya’s books: "Evolution Deceit", "Perished Nations", "The Truth of the Life of this World", "Ever Thought about the Truth", and "The Basic Concepts in the Qur’an". I found these books in compliance with Islam’s teaching. Mr. Yahya is quoting Quranic statements and drawing the attention of the reader to the facts embedded in these statements to prove the truth- fulness of God’s message, Islam. I expect this writer to be recognized and honored by the Turkish government for his fine work. You ought to be proud of this writer. Canadian Muslims are proud. Qasem Mahmud, P. Eng.

  • 27. Poland, Farhat Khan "THIS BOOK IS ONE OF THE BEST DESCRIPTION OF MUSLIM UNDERSTANDING OF DEATH, RESURRECTION AND HELL" P oland is one the biggest catholic coun- try in the heart of Central and Eastern Europe. It has also one of the oldest Muslim minority within its border. But the 600 — years old tradition of coexistence of Muslims and Non-Muslims still does not bring the mutual under- standing of each others. People do not know much about Islamic values and standards and they are afraid, due to stereotypes, of The Polish edition of Death Muslim values. Therefore we, Resurrection Hell gives a clear in - sight into these issues. Polish Muslims, have established in 1990 an association which main goal is to bring better understanding of each ones’ values and ideas and also to bring peace between the followers of different religions and culture. In our opinion knowledge is the best protection of the peace. Harun Yahya’s effort on this protection is one of the most recognized in our time. I am writing you on behalf of Polish Muslim Circle. For last 5 years we had been organizing open lectures on different Islamic topics. What we found is that the most interesting issue for the people here is the question of death, resurrection and hell. 34
  • 28. We started to look for the best Muslim analyses on these topics. And this is how we found on internet Harun Yahya’s book on Death Resurrection and Hell. After analyzing different authors and titles we de- cided to translated the book of Harun Yahya as the best choice. In our opinion this book is one of the best description of Muslim un- derstanding of death, resurrection and hell. The inner strength of the book and clearness of the text was recognized by several Polish intellec- tuals who decided to translate other Harun Yahya’s books on Islamic top- ics. We hope that one day the Author could visit Poland and meet the people who are living and work- ing here. We wish him the best in this life and hereafter, and we ask Allah to protect him from all kinds of fitna. Farhat Khan Secretary General of Pol›sh Musl›m C›rcle 35

USA, Nabil Elibiary "I USE THESE BOOKS IN INVITING AMERICANS IN UNIVERSITIES AND HIGH SCHOOLS TO ISLAM" I am frequently invited to speak about Islam in schools, churches, in Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, I am usually faced with questions about views of Islam on evolution, creation, women, morality, marriage, and some other subjects. I do my best in answering these questions but those who ask wanted something in writing to explain the subjects in more details. I kept searching the Internet for good books and finally found the books of Harun Yahya. The books are directed to the exact points of interest of the new generations. This analysis is logic and is supported with ample scientific evi- dences. Since then, I am giving his books free to the students who asked the most intelligent questions. Please find below my assessment about the books below authored by Harun Yahya (Adnan Oktar). I use these books in inviting Americans in Universities and High Schools to Islam. 1. The books are great scien- tific analysis that explains most in- volved concepts in a simple, easy to understand progression. 2. The books are presented in a high quality of finish, colours, graphics and pictures. They proved to be very attrac- tive and effective. 3. The main themes in the Books are: a.

  • 31. Portugal, Yiossuf Mohamed Adamgy "THE WRITER IN THESE BOOKS ADHERES TO A PRINCIPLE OF THE HOLY QUR'AN, WHICH IS OBLIGATORY FOR ALL MUSLIMS ON THE WORLD" R eport on the Religious-Scientific Value of the Following Books of HARUN YAHYA: - Perished Nations - Evolution Deceit - The Basic Concepts in the Qur’an - For Men of Understanding - Never Plead Ignorance As the names suggest, these books bear a high intellectual value written with a responsibility felt towards the society arising from the disbelief, anti-rational understanding of Religion, and the general moral degenera- tion existing in the actual society, everywhere.

The books I have studied, and the arti- cles which I have read over the internet are a valuable source of treasure for those seek- ing the truth. The rich information which he has produced regarding Evolution, con- vincingly and without a doubt clarifies that the theory of Darwin is a totally refutable and unacceptable.

  • 37. United Kingdom, Mona Abdul Haq "HARUN YAHYA'S BOOKS ARE REFRESHING TO READ" SUBJECT: Overview of the following books by Harun Yah- ya: Perished Nations 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. 44

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.

  • 48. United Kingdom, Gai Eaton "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.

South Africa, Ali Adam "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 the universe. 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.

USA, Dr. Habibuddin Ahmed "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.

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."

  • 61. Pakistan, Dr. Najib-ul-Haq 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.

  • 63. Malaysia, Dr. Mohammad Arif Kasmo "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.

  • 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 August 2000 claims, but as the result of the creation of Allah, the Almighty, the Owner of infinite knowledge and wisdom."

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- phasized. ...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." 105

Below is an excerpt from that article: "The 77% of nitrogen, 21% oxygen and 1% of carbon dioxide as well as other gasses readily available in the atmosphere represent the ideal figures necessary for the survival of living beings. 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 114

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.

  • 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?"

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...." July 2001 128

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.

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."

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".

The cover bears the title, "Islamic Creationism in Turkey" and gives this introduction: "... Most representative is Harun Yahya’s text The Evolution Deceit. The book comes in 2 version - a large, attractive 370-page volume no- table for its many full-color illustrations and slick appearance (Yah- ya 1997) and an abridged 128-page booklet with fewer illustrations, which was widely distributed free of charge to the public (Yahya 1998)… Observing the awesome and orderly aspects of nature - the heavens and the stability of the earth, lightning and rain, useful plant and fruits, and so on - prompts common sense to conclude that all this must be designed for a purpose (13 Ar-Rad 2, 3; 30 Ar-Rum 20-27)..." 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.

  • 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.

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.

  • 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. 282
