THE SECRET BEHIND THE CREATION OF GOOD AND EVIL
The life of this world is a test specially created by Allah. It is a transitory thing with both good and bad in which human beings are tested. There is, of course, considerable wisdom in this. It is essential that evil exist beside good for people to understand the value of Paradise. Human beings are tested in terms of the virtuous behavior they display, by Allah’s leave, in this sphere in which the good are divided from the evil.
The life of this world is a sphere in which there is a constant struggle between the good and the bad. However, good and bad are not separated from one another by just a few characteristics. They possess totally different, comprehensive and detailed character traits. The bad act entirely according to satan’s directions, while the good follow their consciences. The bad know no bounds inspired by fear of Allah, and are capable of doing anything at any time. When the situation and prevailing conditions require they are quite capable of lying, slandering others, engaging in unlawful acts, disloyalty, treachery, putting their own interests before those of others, hatred, envy, imbalance and intrigue. Since they have no fear of Allah they are potentially capable of all kinds of betrayal and wickedness. There is nothing to stop them killing, for example, when they become sufficiently imbalanced. The more evil they commit, the more they come under satan’s control, and the more evil deeds they are capable of committing.
People under satan’s control busy themselves with wrongdoing, making life difficult for others, and spreading darkness, fear and misery, instead of enjoying life’s blessings. They look at the life of this world from a different perspective. Although they know their lives will be very brief, they still elect to waste this short time span on feelings of greed and enmity, thinking of their own interests. And their targets are people of good character.
Good people are those who act from a fear of Allah. The delights created in this world are all blessings in the eyes of such people. Fear of Allah leads them to behave well and properly throughout their lives, to be loyal and honest, never to do anything unlawful, never to infringe anyone else’s rights, to put others above themselves, to be friends and brothers to others, to be trustworthy, to harbor no ulterior motives and never to plot and conspire. Such people are highly virtuous at every moment in their lives. They are never imbalanced, exhibit unexpected character traits or lose control of themselves. Because of their fear of Allah, the good always behave in a manner compatible with the Qur’an. This is one of the main distinguishing features between the good and the bad. It is also the cause of the evil’s eternal hostility to the good: Since the evil have declared war on all that Allah sees as good, they also hate those who love Him.
Since the life of this world is a test in which the good are distinguished from the bad, whenever there is chaos and evil in it, one faces the need to live in a manner compatible with the Qur’an. Only when people live for Allah’s approval, and thus according to the Qur’an, will this world be a flawless place of friendship, brotherhood, honesty, love and compassion. The fact that this world was created as described in the Qur’an is also evidence of the existence of the Hereafter. People are tested according to whether or not they will abide by the Qur’an. In one verse Almighty Allah reveals:
He Who created death and life to test which of you is best in action. He is the Almighty, the Ever-Forgiving. (Surat al-Mulk, 2)
Perfection endures for all time in the eternal Paradise created by Allah. Our Almighty Lord will bestow His artistry of perfection, together with the most delightful blessings, on true believers in the Hereafter. Paradise is a sphere where there is no evil, imperfection, sorrow or fear, in which delights are bestowed for all eternity. It manifests the sublime artistry of Allah, He Who has the power to create flawlessness and the finest blessings. As our Almighty Lord reveals in other verses:
Those brought near will witness it. The truly good will be in perfect Bliss on couches gazing in wonder. (Surat al-Mutaffifin, 21-23)
The Scorpion Fish's Camouflage
Scorpion fish live mainly on the sea floor in temperate or tropical zones and never venture out into the open sea. They are carnivorous and feed on smaller fish. Their long, fan-shaped fins are an excellent deterrent to the fish's enemies, and its red-and-white stripes make it difficult for their prey to see them among the corals. The scorpion fish has a very colorful appearance. But since the corals it lives in are also very colorful, it easily hides among them. It decreases its chances of being a prey. It also allows it to get close to its own prey easily.
It is very difficult to distinguish most undersea creatures, like scorpion fish, from the environment in which they live. The presence of these creatures becomes clear only when they move. These creatures which camouflage themselves under the sea in a perfect way also use their colors to hunt, reproduce and send messages. How, then, did this harmony originate? Who has made the body of a fish the same color as the rock where it lives and even given it the same protuberant appearance as the rock? And who has given a shrimp the colors of sea plants? It is impossible for any chemical processes occurring by chance or any other factor to give these creatures the color of the environment they live in.
It is also impossible for a fish, shrimp or crab to be aware of the concept of color and to produce systems that make color changes in themselves. Such a thought cannot go beyond mere imagination. Designing such a system, placing this system into creatures, making arrangements in genes to make it possible to transfer it from generation to generation, and coding all the information in the cells of creatures can be done only by the owner of a superior power.
The Owner of this superior power is God. God created all creatures together with the traits they possess. God draws our attention to this fact in the following verse:
Doesn't He not know those whom He created? He is the All-Pervading, the All-Aware. It is He who made the Earth submissive to you, so walk its broad trails and eat what it provides. The Resurrection is to Him. (Qur'an, 14-15)
DARWINISTS ARE IN DISMAY!
Darwinists have concluded from the way orang utans produce the sound of laughter that these are the ancestors of human beings.
Let us not provide other evidence, although this evidence may well depress Darwinists even further: If Darwinists are looking for similarities, orang utans’ teeth also resemble those of human beings. They also have two eyes and a nose in the front of their heads, just like human beings! They also have two ears and two arms. They eat and move. Just like human beings, they drink water and clean themselves. They have fingernails, just like human beings, and their hands resemble ours.
And even more than all this, THEY ALSO MAKE LAUGHING SOUNDS.
The way that Darwinists have become obsessed by this laughing sounds, despite all these other similarities, is a clear sign of the depressed state they are in. What they should do is to take the points we have listed above according to Darwinists’ distorted logic as their starting point and refer to these as supposed evidence for so-called evolution. But they are currently trying to depict the way a baby orang utan laughs when tickled as evidence for this nonsense by stirring all Darwinist publications into action. This is a sign of the seriously depressed state in which Darwinists find themselves.
But what Darwinists are unable to grasp is this; the more a living thing resembles human beings, the more human beings like it. Because, as it says in the Qur’an, human beings are created in the best of forms. These features in humans also being manifested in other living things is a great blessing for us. People will still enjoy these similarities if they exist in an insect, a butterfly. That is the secret behind Allah creating some life forms to resemble human beings. One of the wise aspects in Allah’s Creation of similarities is His showing beauty and blessings in living things to human beings, who possess the awareness and consciousness with which to appreciate them. It is a miracle how Allah causes an animal to laugh. Because animals are devoid of consciousness and are unaware of their own existence. It is a great blessing, a sublime beauty created by Allah, the way that a living thing with no consciousness can enjoy itself, laugh, know love and compassion, protect its young, groom itself and defend itself and its offspring, and take precautionary measures. But Darwinists cannot account for any of these attributes. The way that Darwinists are trying to depict this similarity specially created by Allah as proof of so-called evolution, on the basis of no scientific evidence whatsoever, shows the despair in which they find themselves.
Darwinists are truly wretched to persistently make such ludicrous claims to prop up their false theories. If Darwinists are to produce any evidence for the fraud they call evolution, then they must back up their claims regarding fictitious ape-like ancestors with scientific evidence. They must prove them with genuine, concrete and scholarly evidence. For example, THEY MUST PRODUCE A TRANSITIONAL FORM FOSSIL. That would be scientific evidence. BUT DARWINISTS ARE OF COURSE UNABLE TO PRODUCE A SINGLE PIECE OF EVIDENCE IN SUPPORT OF EVOLUTION, AND CANNOT POINT TO A SINGLE TRANSITIONAL FOSSIL. Because this theory IS A HUGE FRAUD. That is why the only thing that Darwinists keep using as so-called evidence is living things’ similarity to human beings, itself Allah’s glorious artistry. This fact is manifest evidence of the wretched state that Darwinist demagoguery has left Darwinists in.
Creationist Ideas Continue to Expand Their Sphere of Influence - 06.02.2009
Switzerland/Tribune de Genève
Tribune de Genève, the daily published in the Swiss canton of Geneva, once again raised the impact of the Atlas of Creation on 6 February, 2009. Published in French and with a readership of 175,000, the paper referred to the effect of the Atlas of Creation in the words "Switzerland has not been spared this ‘invasion’.” The cover story went to on to describe the heavy blows made Darwinism suffer in Europe:
These days CREATIONIST IDEAS... CONTINUE TO EXPAND THEIR SPHERE OF INFLUENCE... TURKS ARE LEADING THE MUSLIM WORLD (in activities against the theory of evolution). Since 2007, a weighty book (around 8 kilos), the Atlas of Creation, written by a Turk called Harun Yahya, whose real name is Adnan Oktar... seeks to prove with photographs of fossils that evolution never happened.
A SERIOUS OFFENSIVE AGAINST DARWIN IS TAKING PLACE. This Turkish group leaves nothing to chance. Adnan Oktar, a most extraordinary character, has great strength...
IT IS NOW THE TURN OF EUROPE, which was for long unaffected by these movements, TO BE AFFECTED BY THE CREATIONIST WAVE FOLLOWING THE APPEARANCE OF HARUN YAHYA’S BOOK. For example, one of these countries is Britain; many conferences have been held in both state schools and universities in Britain.
Creationist views now have the wind in their sails. AND SWITZERLAND HAS NOT BEEN SPARED THIS ‘INVASION’.” In 2007, creationist theory appeared alongside the theory of evolution for the first time in school text books... The campaign of the opponents of evolution does not seem likely to end soon.
European countries unable to withstand the devastating impact on Darwinism of the Atlas of Creation, are one by one surrendering Europe to Creationist belief.
Snoop Dogg Announces He Is a Muslim / BBC News/guardian.co.uk / 02.03.2009
Snoop Dogg announced that he is a Muslim at Nation of Islam Saviors’ Day convention in Chicago in March 2009.
The famous rap music star Snoop Dogg announced that he is a Muslim. Snoop, used to be constantly in the news because of his drug use, prison life and extraordinary life style as well as his music, shared this decision with fans at the Nation of Islam Saviors’ Day event in Chicago.
Snoop Dogg has topped the charts with his music and has frequently been the subject of stories about his extreme life style.
There had already been claims that Snoop was a Muslim. But these reports had never been confirmed. But Snoop Dogg has now personally confirmed to his fans that he is a Muslim.
Taking part in the Nation of Islam Saviors’ Day convention in Chicago, Snoop Dogg made financial donations as well as announcing his conversion to Islam.
The beauty of the moral values of Islam is being increasingly appreciated across the world, and people are turning to Islam in large numbers. Snoop Dog is just one of the thousands of these people who are converting to Islam every day. By Allah’s leave, and as revealed in the hadiths of the Prophet (saas), the End Times we are living in will be an age when the moral values of Islam come to rule the world with the coming of the Prophet Jesus (as) and Hazrat Mahdi (as).

This frog belongs to the family of Pelopatidae, or mud burrowers. Some members of this family use their back legs to burrow under mud, and others live in an aquatic environment. Darwinists claim that fish are the ancestors of amphibians, but they offer no proof to support this claim. On the contrary, scientific discoveries show that there are such important anatomical differences between the two species that it is impossible for amphibians to have evolved from fish.
One of these scientific discoveries is the fossil record. According to the fossil record, the three basic classes of amphibian all appeared at once. The evolutionist Robert Carroll says, "The earliest fossils of frogs, caecilians, and salamanders all appear in the Early to Middle Jurassic. All show most of the important attributes of their living descendants." (Robert L. Carroll, Patterns and Processes of Vertebrate Evolution, Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1997, pp. 292-293.)
TURKEY AN INTERNATIONAL PLAYER
The Affectionate; The Healer
And when I am ill, it is He Who heals me . ( Surat ash-Shu‘ara', 80)
Allah uses illness to force people to realize just how feeble they are and how much help they really need. Thus, the hundreds of diseases in our world are created for both bodily and spiritual purposes. For example, they are signs of a purposeful and superior creation and of His power, for how else can one explain the existence of microscopic viruses?
Only Allah can remove an illness, for He is the One Who created it. As a manifestation of ash-Shafee , Allah removes a disease whenever He wills. If He does not will this, no doctor, advanced technology, or innovative medication can help or cure the patient, for all medicine is only means of recovery. Each illness is sent so that we may ponder upon it, eventually see our Lord's infinite power next to our own feebleness, and seek His help whenever we are in distress. Believers have to be aware that Allah is their only guardian and helper.
The Qur'an praises Prophet Ayyub (as) for his submission to Allah. The moral excellence, patience, and trust he displayed in the face of devastating distress has become an example for all believers. The related verse is as follows:
And Ayyub, when he called out to his Lord: “Great harm has afflicted me, and You are the Most Merciful of the merciful.” ( Surat al-Anbiya', 83)
Allah answered his call and removed his distress, and Prophet Ayyub (as) earned the rewards of being patient and turning solely to Allah.
TURKISH ISLAMIC UNION
What He Said
Bağdat TV, March 2-2008
Adnan Oktar: The Sun rises where it sets. And it sets where rises. That is generally the case. Since the Sun set here, it is from here it will also rise. That is my first belief. My second and fundamental belief is that, according to the hadith, Hazrat Mahdi (as) will appear in Istanbul. There are many hadith about that. They refer to Konstantiniyye. There are also many hadith about the Turks undertaking this duty. Many hadith speak of the Mahdi emerging from among the Turks. That is how it appears when we look at the historical circumstances. That is how it appears when we look at the social conditions. LOOKED FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF THE CURRENT FLOW OF GENERAL HISTORY, THIS IS THE CASE. INDEED, THERE IS NO COUNTRY EXCEPT TURKEY APPROACHING LEADERSHIP AT THE MOMENT. IT ALSO APPEARS THAT TURKEY WILL BE THE NATURAL LEADER. The ideal thing, the generally accepted view in the Islamic world, is Turkish leadership. Whoever one asks, whichever Arab country one asks, they all want Turkish leadership. I have not seen anyone asking for any other country.
Azerbaijan Apa News Agency, August 16-2008
Adnan Oktar: Let me tell you the reason for this. The Turkish nation is the standard bearer of Islam. This nation displayed this characteristic for a thousand years. Allah has given this task to the Turkish nation. The hadith accounts have also shown this. In the hadith, too, the Mahdi will also appear in Turkey in the End Times. He will even serve in Istanbul. And we can see that the Turkish nation is a noble one from its history, its practices and its moral values. That is true in Kazakhstan and in East Turkestan. A really most elect and excellent nation. IF WE ASKED NOW WHO SHOULD BE THE LEADER OF THE ISLAMIC WORLD, EVERYONE WOULD AND WILL SAY TURKEY. This is not a racial superiority, but one of ability and capability, for which reason we must make this blessing a reality at once. A Turkic Union must first be established right away, and there is no need to form a queue. For instance, Syria and Azerbaijan can amalgamate with Turkey at one and the same time. At the same time, there is no need for a queue. This union must be founded, under Turkish leadership, right away. Nobody will have any problems once that is done.

Behind The Scenes, Turkey
Plays An Important Role
The Turkish-Islamic Union is a union of love. It is a union of affection, a union of hearts. The bases of this union are love, altruism, helping others, compassion, tolerance and understanding. The aim of the union is also to achieve the highest levels in respect for human beings and in art, science and technology. Recent developments show that the foundation of the Turkish-Islamic Union, awaited with great excitement and enthusiasm by the Turkish-Islamic world, is close at hand.
This book will send you on a journey inside your own body, a journey on which a great many surprises await you. You will discover that in your heart, there is a generator, and that when it cuts out, a spare generator steps in to replace it. You will see how cells in your lower intestine can recognize and trap iron atoms from among the many hundreds of different substances they encounter. You will witness miraculous events that have been taking place since the day you were born throughout what you refer to as “my body,” starting right beneath your skin.
From that point of view, your human body is a whole other world, with its own modes of transport, buildings, factories, infrastructure systems, equipment more highly advanced than even the most sophisticated technology in the 21st-century world, specialized elements (cells, hormones, glands) that exhibit unexpectedly conscious behavior, fully equipped defense troops, and many other marvels.
It is most important that we consider the events that take place inside this miniaturized world, because anyone who starts thinking about them will start liberating himself from a great illusion. It will no longer be possible to deceive with evolutionary tales of how Man came into being by chance those who have witnessed the perfect creation in their own bodies. They will have now made the acquaintance of their own Creator, Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.
You, reading this book, will once again encounter an incontrovertible truth. Allah created you from nothing and shaped you flawlessly. In return, what you must do is to know that when you rise in the morning, every new day bestowed upon you, is a blessing from Allah, and to give thanks to Him.
Living Groups Emerged Abruptly on Earth and at the Same Time
Just as silica, the raw material of glass, can not gradually transform itself into a crystal goblet, or the pieces of plastic and metal and glass cannot come together and assemble themselves into a camera, neither can living beings come into being from non-living substances-no matter how much time we allow for this to happen.
Almost all the basic living categories known today emerged suddenly and at the same time, during the Cambrian Period, 530 to 520 million years ago. Living organisms with totally different bodily structures-sponges, mollusks, worms, Echinodermata, arthropods and vertebrates-all appeared suddenly, simultaneously, with no life forms remotely resembling them in any earlier geological period. This fact alone completely undermines evolutionists' claims that living things evolved from a single common ancestor gradually, and over a very long period of time.
The fact that the Earth was suddenly filled with a great many species, all possessing radically different physical structures and exceedingly complex organs demonstrates that these were, of course, created. Since evolutionists deny creation and the existence of God, they cannot definitely explain this miraculous phenomenon.
