How Is It That Allah Encompasses Everything And He Is Closer To Us Than Our Jugular Vein?
Matter is composed only of sensations. And the only real, absolute being is Allah. This means that only Allah exists; all things except Him are shadow beings. Allah is surely “everywhere” and encompasses all. Everything that exists is an image projected to us by Allah.
Since material beings are each a perception, they cannot see Allah; but Allah sees the matter that He created in all its forms. That is, we cannot grasp Allah’s being with our eyes, but Allah has thoroughly encompassed us from the inside, from the outside, in looks and in thoughts. We cannot utter any word unless it is with His knowledge, nor can we even take a breath.
While we watch these sensory perceptions in the course of our lives, the closest being to us is not any one of these sensations, but Allah Himself. The secret of the following verse in the Qur’an is concealed in this reality:
“It is We Who created man, and We know what dark suggestions his soul makes to him: for We are nearer to him than (his) jugular vein.” (Surah Qaf, 16)
When a human being thinks that his body is made up only of “matter,” he cannot comprehend this important fact. If he takes his brain to be “himself,” then the place that he accepts to be the outside is 20-30 cm away from him. However, when he understands that there is nothing such as matter, and that everything is imagination, notions such as outside, inside, far or near lose their meaning. Allah has encompassed him and He is “infinitely close” to him.
The Tactics of Coryanthes Orchids
Is it possible for a flower to be aware of the preferences of an insect? Is it possible for it to make plans to make this insect fall into its trap and make changes in itself accordingly? Without a doubt, it is not possible for a flower or an insect to carry out such tactics by means of its own reason and will. However, when we look at the creatures in nature, we see that they often apply just such kinds of tactics.
The Coryanthes orchid is one such plant that makes insects fall into its trap by means of an interesting tactic. The reproductive system of the orchid is based on attracting insects and making them carry its pollen. The flowers of this orchid species grow in clusters. Each flower has two wing-like sepals and just behind these leaves is a tiny "bucket." When the flowers open, a special liquid secreted by two special glands begins to drip into the bottom of this bucket. After a while the flower begins to emit a fragrance that bees find irresistible.
As the orchid blooms, male bees respond to the scent and begin to fly around the flower. While they try to land on the vertical edges of the orchid, they also look for a place to hang onto with their legs, like the tubular section of the flower that connects the bucket to the stem. This part is slippery and sloping. Therefore, the bees creeping around the flower inevitably fall into the bucket in the bottom of the flower that is filled with the liquid.
There is only one way out for the bee that has fallen into the flower. A narrow tunnel leads to the front wall of the flower, that is, to daylight. Until the insect finds this way out, which is at the same level as the liquid into which the bee has fallen, it keeps swimming in the liquid. While trying to find the exit, it passes under the stigma, where there is pollen, and the flower's male organs. At that time, two pollen sacs stick to the back of the insect. Then the insect advances towards the exit and finally leaves the flower. When the bee goes to a new flower, this time the stigma of the flower picks up the pollen from the bee and, in this way, pollination begins.
Yet, this situation doesn't benefit the flower alone. The liquid present in the flower bucket the bees fall into is extremely important for bees as well, because the male bees will use the odor of this secretion smeared on their bodies to attract female bees during mating.
As we said in the beginning, it is not at all possible for a flower to develop tactics to deceive an insect and arrange its structure according to this tactic.
Similarly, it is no less impossible for an insect to develop a tactic to acquire a needed substance from a flower by means of its own will. The amazing cooperation between these two creatures is evidence for the fact that they were created by a unique Creator.
The Implications of the Galapagos Islands
Louis Agassiz. the well-known Harvard University zoologist, visited the Galapagos in 1872 and stated that he saw no fight for survival among the living things there, but that they lived lives administered by a beneficent Creator.251 Indeed, the tame animals on the Galapagos Islands refute Darwinists, who claim that nature consists of a struggle for survival. Professor Agassiz, one of the most famous biologists of his time, has explained the invalidity of evolution and defended the idea that Creation was the origin of life.1
Anyone who sets aside prejudices and preconceptions in looking at the Galapagos will immediately agree with Agassiz's observations. These small areas of land in the middle of the ocean, a thousand kilometers from the mainland, contain plants and animals of a richness, variety and beauty not to be seen anywhere else on Earth: verdant tropical plants and trees, brightly colored, dazzling birds, a whole range of living things, with flawless designs and matchless beauty ... Anyone with normal understanding will be amazed at these species' vivacity and variety, and will conclude that a magnificent Creation is on display. That is the natural conclusion; what one might expect. The surprising thing, however, is how Darwin and his followers saw all this and yet made such an irrational and unscientific inference as evolution. (In fact, there is no need to travel to the Galapagos Islands or to watch nature documentaries about them in order to witness the proofs of Creation that exist in the entire universe. Anyone can see countless proofs of the might, intelligence and knowledge of God everywhere, from his own body to the skies, simply by raising his head.)
Let us have a closer look at the Galapagos finches. Their wing geometry has been designed in a manner appropriate to short flights, leaps and maneuvering in dense vegetation. Whole volumes could be written about their beak structures, flight techniques, special skeletal, respiratory, digestive and other systems, the complex and aerodynamic structure of their feathers, their nest-building techniques, sense organs, methods of hunting and feeding, forms of behavior, and the sounds and melodies they produce during reproductive and social activities.
These characteristics of Galapagos finches are all marvels of design. There are countless proofs and miraculous properties in a single cell of these birds, or even in a single protein molecule.
It is sure and certain that God has created all living things, together with their flawless characteristics. The Galapagos finches are one of the countless proofs of this. Darwinists must realize that they are only deceiving themselves with their tall tales regarding the Galapagos finches.

The Creation in the Structure of the Cell is One Proof that Invalidates the Theory of Evolution
Thanks to their perfect structures, some 200 different kinds of cells perform different functions in the body.. For example, nerve cells have extensions approximately 1 meter long, reaching from the spinal cord down to the feet. This enables stimuli to reach their destination very quickly along a single route. Blood corpuscles, on the other hand, are only 7 micrometers in size, which allows them to pass easily through microscopically small capillary vessels.
Inside the eye's light-sensitive retinal cells, a large number of membranes carry light-sensitive pigments and nerve connections. In this way, the cells become sensitive to light. The intestines contain food-digesting cells with a shape ideally suited to their task. All these cells come into being through the division of one single cell in the human embryo. But did unconscious atoms and coincides assume the responsibility for these cells' flawless shapes so ideally suited to their functions? This extraordinary organization and planning, which the theory of evolution can never account for, is a proof of God's creation.
Rise of the Evolution Deniers - 02.03.2008 - United Kingdom/The Morning Star
The British Morning Star, publishing organ of the Communist Party, announced its unease at the rise on creationist belief with the headlines “Rise of the Evolution Deniers” and “Ken Macleod investigates the disturbing rise of evolution denial in British society.” The collapse in Europe of Darwinism, the supposed scientific basis for communism, is alarming the proponents of communist ideology. Because there can be no communism where there is no Darwinism. Communism has today lost the support it used to draw from Darwinism (with the realization of the false nature of Darwinism) and is condemned to be remembered as a discredited ideology.
This is what the article had to say about the rise in the belief in creation:
Thirty five years ago, I mentioned creationism to one of my zoology tutors at Glascow University. “Nobody” he said, “takes these people seriously!”
Today, another of my former tutors, Roger Downie, who is now professor of zoological education at Glascow University, has to take creationism- or evolution denial, as he prefers to call it- a bit more seriously than that.
In Islam, Creationism is more mainstream than it is in Christianity. ... His [Harun Yahya’s] books and CD’s are finely produced but inexpencive and 10,000 copies of his full-colour volume Atlas of Creation have been delivered to scientists in Europe and north America.
On February 26, University College London’s Islamic Society hosted a presentation by representatives of the Harun Yahya Organisation on The Collapse of the Evolution Theory, one of dozens of similar events over the past year or two in the UK and many more in the Muslim world, drawing huge audiences in Indonesia.
An Italian Ambassador Becomes A Muslim/ Reuters, November 26, 2001
The Western press and news agencies were attracted by Torquato Cardilli's, Italian ambassador to Saudi Arabia, conversion to Islam. Above we see a Reuters' report entitled "Rome's Envoy to Saudi Arabia Converts to Islam." Actually, Torquoato Cardilli was the second ambassador who converted to Islam. Before him, Ambassador Mario Scialoja also had converted to Islam. Having converted when he was Rome's permanent ambassador to the United Nations, Scialoja was later appointed ambassador to Saudi Arabia. Cardilli had spent many years in Muslim countries, and his conversion shows once again the rapid growth of Islam in Italy. About 1 million Muslims live in Italy and in the last two or three years about 5,000 people have converted.
LOBSTER, FLYING FISH
Age: 95 million years
Location: Haqel, Lebanon
This specimen contains the remains of two creatures -a lobster alongside a flying fish.
These lobsters, members of the family Nephropsidae, have never changed since the first day they came into existence. The same applies to flying fish. This stasis in the fossil record represents a major quandary for Darwinists.
It is no longer possible for Darwinist propaganda to have any lasting effect in the face of these concrete findings from the fossil records. Darwinists must realize the impossibility of concealing the fact of Creation and stop insisting on their dogmas.
AL-WALEE, (The Protector)
Allah is the Protector of those who believe. He brings them out of the darkness and into the light. But those who do not believe have false deities as protectors. They take them from the light into the darkness. Those are the Companions of the Fire remaining in it timelessly, forever. ( Surat al-Baqara, 257)
Both in this world and in the next, people have only one real friend. This friend never abandons them, is next to them, and helps them in the face of every difficulty. From the day they are born until they die, He is always with them and protects them against their enemies. He is more reliable than anyone else, and always rewards them without expecting anything in return. This friend, of course, is our Lord, the believers' most intimate friend, Who purifies all those who place their trust in Him and promise them a distinguished life here and eternal wealth in the Hereafter.
Throughout their lives, people seek someone more powerful or wealthier upon whom they can rely in all circumstances. Yet while seeking such people, they totally forget our All-Mighty Lord, Who created them and meets all of their needs. They take Satan, who only leads them toward sin and hinders them from attaining Paradise , as their friend. This is the beginning of a gloomy world.
People who have faith and sincere faith in Allah, on the other hand, enjoy a good and honorable life. In this life, there is no room for failure, because Allah grants victory to believers as long as they remain committed to their religion and their words. Meanwhile, the actual reward is waiting for them in the Hereafter. Allah is the sole real protector of believers both in this world and beyond. His attribute of al-Walee is described in the following verses:
Allah knows best who your enemies are. Allah suffices as a Protector; Allah suffices as a Helper. ( Surat an-Nisa', 45)
And remember when two of your clans were on the point of losing heart and Allah was their Protector. Let the believers put their trust in Allah. (Surah Al ‘Imran, 122)
It is He Who sends down abundant rain, after they have lost all hope, and unfolds His mercy. He is the Protector, the Praiseworthy. ( Surat ash-Shura, 28)
Mahdi According to Holy Scriptures
Allah reveals in the Qur’an that he has chosen and sanctified Phrophet Abraham (pbuh) and his line (Surat al-Baqara, 130, Surah Al-Imran, 33). The same information also appears in the Judaic Torah (Genesis, 22:17, 12:2)
The line of Prophet Abraham (pbuh) continued with his two sons, the prophets Ishmael and Isaac (peace be upon them). Throughout the course of history, a large number of prophets descended from Prophet Isaac (pbuh) came to the Israelites: the prophets Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Aaron, Jonah, Job, Elijah, David, Solomon, Zaccariah, John and Jesus (peace be upon them). Descended from the line of Prophet Ishmael are the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad (may Allah bless him and grant him peace), teachers from his line and finally the Imam Muhammad al-Mahdi.
Allah protected the two branches of the descendants of Prophet Abraham (pbuh) in order for them to establish their dominion. In the End Times, He will unite the Imam al-Mahdi and Prophet Jesus (pbuh) in order for that promise to be fulfilled.
According to the hadiths of our Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace), the Mahdi will meet up with Prophet Jesus (pbuh), and they will perform the daily prayer together. One account relates that the Mahdi will recognize Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and offer him public recognition. The Mahdi and Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will reign together for a while on Earth and collaborate in order to eradicate the system of the Anti-christ. (Allah knows best.)
In referring to the End Times, the Bible sometimes uses very clear terminology as to when the Mahdi will appear. It appears that this period preceding the coming of the Mahdi will be one of social and moral degeneration, major wars, terrifying catastrophes, extraordinary phenomena in the skies, a turning away from religious moral values, the spread of injustice and unfairness, the oppression of true believers, and peace and security being replaced by chaos and unease.
In this site you may find detailed information on Mahdi according to the Torah, the Qur’an and the Bible.
Le Monde, which is one of the most read daily news papers in France, has made an interview with Mr.Adnan Oktar in Turkey. The interviewer draws attention to the fact that Mr.Adnan Oktar was very much spoken of in France in respect of his studies regarding the collapse of the evolution theory.
In the interview Mr.Adnan Oktar states that the 2nd, 3rd and 4th volumes of his book named Atlas of Creation are being translated into French. He has declared that the Atlas of Creation had very positive effects all over the Europe and that especially after the publication of this book, there has been great differences in between the statements of Mr.Nicolas Sarkozy, the president of France, given before and now. He states that Mr. Nicolas Sarkozy’s making statements about faith in Allah and giving enthusiastic statements about the love of Allah despite of the severe pressure of the Masonic lodges and the Freemasons, was only possible with the effect of this book.
Mr.Adnan Oktar, stating that there was a huge demand for the Atlas of Creation from the universities and academy lecturers of especially European universities, gives examples of the positive effects the book in England, along with France. He mentions that Mr.Tony Blain, the former President of England, who was before a socialist and Marxist, after the book had reached England, started to give very beautiful and sincere statements about faith in Allah.
Mr.Adnan Oktar states the fact that no one has anything left to be said in respect of Evolution after it has been proved by the fossils which are put forward that no evolution had occurred. He implies that the collapse of Darwinism is very clearly seen: “We asked the French people to bring any proofs they might have had to support the evolution theory so that we could display them in front of the Eifel tower, yet they could not come up with any.” Mr.Oktar continues his words: “ Darwin states that his theory could only be true if the transitional fossils are found, and we proved that there are no transitional fossils and thus confirmed what Darwin said: This means there is no evolution.”
In the other sections of the interview Mr.Adnan Oktar gives examples of his new books and their contents. In this part Mr.Adnan Oktar states that Jesus will definitely return and he adds that the return of Jesus will be one of the greatest events which would shock the whole world.
THE OTHER NAME FOR ILLUSION: MATTER
What is explained in this book is an important truth, which has surprised many and changed their perspectives on life. This truth can be summarized as follows: "All events and objects that we encounter in real life—buildings, people, cities, cars, places—in fact, everything we see, hold, touch, smell, taste and hear—come into existence as visions and feelings in our brains".We are taught to think that these images and feelings are caused by a solid world outside of our brains, where material things exist. However, in reality we never see real existing materials and we never touch real materials. In other words, every material entity which we believe exists in our lives, is, in fact, only a vision which is created in our brains. This is not a philosophical speculation. It is an empirical fact that has been proven by modern science. Today, any scientist who is a specialist in medicine, biology, neurology or any other field related to brain research would say, when asked how and where we see the world, that we see the whole world in the vision center located in our brains. This fact has been scientifically proven in the twentieth century, and although it may seem surprising, it necessarily implies answers to two questions; "If our lives are visions created in our brains, then who is it that creates these visions? And who is it that sees these visions in our brains without having eyes and enjoys them, gets excited and happy?" You will find the answers to these two important questions in this book.
WHAT DARWINISTS NEVER REALIZE
1-Darwinists never realize how the basic determinant of the shapes assumed by proteins, which are essential for life, is the sequence of the amino acids that constitute the proteins, that if one single amino acid fails to bond to the next in the correct sequence the protein will lose all its functionality, nor how the amino acids that constitute the proteins manage to arrive at the correct location every single time.
2-Darwinists never realize that there are more than 200 types of amino acid in nature, but that the proteins that constitute living things are made up of just 20 of these amino acids, and that it is impossible for such selectivity to have come about by chance.
3-Each one of the chromosomes in the nucleus contains genes that carry all the information regarding a human being. Darwinists never realize that all the organs in the human body are constructed within the framework of a blueprint in the genes inside the cells. They never consider, for example, how the skin is controlled by 2,559 genes, the brain by 29,930 genes, the eye by 1,794 genes, the salivary gland by 186 genes, the heart by 6,216 genes and the lung by 11,581 genes.
4-Darwinists never realize that DNA contains information holding all the details in organisms, that this giant molecule is made up of consecutive sequences of four different components known as “bases,” how these four bases – just like an alphabet consisting of four letters – contain the information for all the organic molecules to be manufactured inside the body, in other words, that these components are arranged not at random but in the light of specific information, that this information is further subdivided into paragraphs and sentences – or genes –, and that every gene codes for different details in the body – for instance, the formula for the hormone insulin that takes the consumed sugar into the cells, or the structure of the cells of the transparent cornea – and that this sublime information inside DNA totally demolishes Darwinists’ claims of coincidence.
5-Darwinists never realize that far from proving their own claims, the fossils of complex invertebrates such as snails, trilobites, sponges, sea urchins, crustaceans and sea lilies in Cambrian rock beds prove that living things appeared suddenly and with no forebears before them, and that this demolishes the myth of Darwin’s “evolutionary tree.”
6-Darwinists never realize that in order for life to form, the entirety of a great many complex mechanisms, hundreds of different proteins, DNA codes, the enzymes that interpret these, the cell membrane with its selective permeability, etc., all need to appear, that the “Chemical evolution” they claim happened is impossible, and that to believe that it did is to believe in the impossible.
7-Darwinists never realize that Stanley Miller, who conducted the Miller Experiment which they regard as an important discovery in explaining the origin of life, carried out that experiment under artificial conditions set up by himself and that had nothing to do with the primeval Earth’s atmosphere. Neither do they realize that only amino acid was synthesized in that experiment, and that the emergence of amino acids in any form is very definitely not the same thing as the emergence of life.
8-Darwinists never realize that different branches of science, such as astrophysics, physics and biology have revealed an order in nature and the universe that can by no means be explained in terms of coincidences, and that this proves the Fact of Creation.
9-Darwinists, who imagine that living fossils prove that a process of evolution took place on Earth, never realize that these fossils in fact reveal a “natural history” that is the exact opposite of Darwin’s theory; they in fact prove that living species did not emerge gradually from a process of evolution, but were created in a single moment in their flawless forms.
10-Darwinists claim that scientists’ experiments have shown that life can begin spontaneously through chemical reactions. But they never realize that not a single experiment exists to show this and that, furthermore, science proves that this is impossible even at the theoretical level.
