The Evolution Deceit
Reviews of Harun Yahya’s Books By Scholars and Prominent Community Leaders - 2
United Kingdom, Afsar Siddiqui
With the publication of just four books in the English language, Harun Yahya has become a household name in the U.K. The exceptional quality of research, content and style are astounding, and a pleasure to read. Their success lies surely in that they appeal to people at all levels – those with knowledge and those without, the academic and layperson, the young and the old.
It is to be hoped that these unique books will gain universal appeal and make a significant contribution to international relations and understanding in all spheres of life.
After Perished Nations ran to four editions in the UK in only years, Ta-Ha Publishers expanded their range of Harun Yahya books.

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. Ishall 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 accepts 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.
Icongratulate you warmly on having published the book. In fact I feel that Iowe you a debt of thanks for doing so.

Ifind that Harun Yahya writes very intelligently. An idea is brought forward, researched, explained, then the masterstroke of combining it all with the Qur'an. The book Perished Nations carries forward a torch full of light;we are shown our past so that we do not make the same mistakes in the future. Everybody seeks knowledge, irrespective of his religious background. Due to this, Harun Yahya books should be read by all.

After reading many of the books produced by Harun Yahya, I have been encouraging my students and the scholars of Islam around the world to take a closer look at these remarkable works. There is no doubt in my mind that these are the very tools needed to bring the people at large around to the correct way of thinking. If anyone could read the material presented in such a clear and concise manner and then reflect upon it seriously, they would have to conclude that the evidences provided leave no room for dispute of any kind.
I use many of the evidences provided by Harun Yahya's books within my lectures, seminars and classes around the world. Everywhere I travel throughout the world, the people who have discovered and enjoyed his books have expressed the very same sentiments. By far we can say that this work is for all humans on this planet and a very much needed source of information in these most trying times. There should be a concerted force to bring about a world wide distribution of these books in all languages, particularly English, Spanish, French, Dutch, German, Italian, Russian, Arabic, Korean and Japanese.
Harun Yahya has provided the world with the window into the reality of existence, life and our purpose for being in this universe. I highly applaud his efforts and the efforts of those who are working so hard to publish and distribute his works. May Allah grant guidance to all those who read these books and may Allah grant mercy to all those who assist in sharing it with other, ameen.

The 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 powerful, relevant and invigorating when it is the product of a vigorous mental exercise 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 seemingly closed doors showing that there is hope and many wonders ahead by understanding and appreciating the wonders of Allah's creation within and around us.

Harun Yahya has done a monumental task of conducting analysis 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 challenges 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 examples 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 critically review signs of Allah through direct references to various creations in Nature. This is what is exactly needed to convince the young mind in particular about the depth in which the Qur'an is brought to them.

All praise be to Allah, the Creator of the Universe. I would like to express my sincere respect and admiration to the great work of Harun Yahya in the form of his various publications dedicated to show the Truth, not only to the Muslim world but to all people in the world. His work is inspiring our mind, awakening our soul. Harun Yahya brought scientific facts as Signs of Allah's creation for men of understanding. May Allah give Harun Yahya the best awards.

Harun Yahya is exceptionally a great advocate of ALLAH's signs in the Universe. His scholarly works in this area have made great impact in the world of science and reason. His main focus is to show that the concept 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 arguments based on current scientific knowledge and irrefutably proves that the Universe has a beginning and therefore is created by ALLAH.
He examines all elements of the subject and tests all possibilities with logic and science and draws highly convincing conclusions. All his works I have read are the treasure of information and an example of his powerful but simple style without any prejudices.
Being a humble student of the Qur'an, I was enlightened by his writings a great deal. I have the honour of reading some of his books like Evolution Deceit, The Creation of the Universe, Allah is Known Through Reason, For Men of Understanding. I will advise every conscientious Muslim to read his books to find that Harun Yahya is a different author who can exert lasting impact on the minds of those who are in search of truth.

Reading Harun Yahya is a travel under Islamic guidance. His thoughts are very clear and concise, which make the reading delightful. We are excited to put his thoughts into Portuguese language insha'Allah.

Since quite some time Islam has been facing a tremendous negative impulse from all over the world. Throughout this time there had been no strong voice against all of this.. until brother Harun Yahya came. Islam needed a powerful subliminal voice to speak for itself amids all this nonsense. Harun Yahya's works have progressed over time, his word reaches out to the rest of the world be it for Muslims or people in general. His books and vide clearly portray the true meaning of Islam and how the one "God" is our only creator. His work is balanced and speaks with a lot of proof. Harun Yahya puts a lot of research into his materials and justifies it with the logical presence of "God" and his miracles in our existence.
We wish him all the best of luck and pray for him to write and produce more successful projects so that the entire world will know that real Islam is.

Congratulations for the publications written under the pen of Harun Yahya. They have had a great impact for its informative scientific content written in a clear way for everybody to understand.
In my opinion, the very same scenery of the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador that captivated thousands by its nature and the unique species, will Inshallah help him out to have the same recoil effect for disclaiming the Charles Darwin theory of the Evolution.
This will be by the Grace of ALLAH, a step forward to establish the authenticity of the Qur'an and Islam.

Reading the books of Harun Yahya has always been a source of immense pleasure thanks to the invaluable insights he artfully and cleverly gave us into authentic Islamic values, rational thinking and genuine teachings.
Thousands of books have been written about Islam, but few could claim to have made the impact of his books on the ideologies and thinking of thousands of people.
One of the greatest merits of Harun Yahya is that he builds up his arguments carefully and logically, with [taking] the average reader always into consideration. He provides background information when needed, and avoids repetition and pompous expressions to keep the reader in focus. He never looses sight of the main idea and always steers away from emotional traps.
It is the ability to generate interest and the keenness to respect the reader's intelligence that help make him one of the most outstanding writers about genuine Islam and relevant Islamic themes.
Please find in this missive my deep gratitude for all the highly significant books and articles.

Many 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 observation. In Quraan it has been said time and again to "think" on various aspects 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 existence. 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 expressed, propagated and advocated by Muslim scholars in different ways. However there had been little effort in explaining religion in light of the creations 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 appears 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 scientific 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 universe" 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 exposing 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 literature 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.

The world is in the midst of crisis. Human beings are facing multitude of crisis because of their rejection of God and His system. The worldwide socio-economic and environment problems, moral degradation and spiritual crisis are some of the manifestations of the rejection. Ever since science detached itself from the Islamic root and follow the agnostic and atheistic system of the West, it created more problems than benefit. Science with the western 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, individualism, 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 salvation 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 science 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" multitude of people, such as al-Walid bin Mughairah, the Arabian noble laureate, and Omar Khattab, for its language, eloquence, and yet again at this modern age, the Qur'an has shown its miracles in terms of science. Haron's work in this topic is very much commendable and should be read by those who aspire to know Islam and its teaching.

Harun Yahya, the well known scientific writer from Turkey, is the scholar who has waged the most effective scientific war against the lie of evolution over the last decade. With scientific facts and sound evidence, the author clearly exposes the lie of evolution, which lacks any scientific proof, and shows the clear signs and might of God the Almighty, the Lord of all the worlds, known and unknown to man.
With their easygoing and fluent style, Harun Yahya's books that have been translated into Russian are easily understandable by both scholars and lay readers. They are therefore very popular among Russian people. These books further constitute a rich and beneficial source of information for university and high school students. It will be a great success for the future if these books are included in the educational curricula of schools and academic institutions.
