“I always wonder why birds choose to stay in the same place when they can fly anywhere on the earth, then I ask myself the same question.”
Harun Yahya
“We live not in the world outside, but in a world inside ourselves.”
Harun Yahya, The Little Man in The Tower
“At the same time believers realise that the defects they see in one another are tests from Allah. For this reason they don't call attention to these defects, but compensate for them by acting positively. They carefully avoid the slightest action, facial expression or word that would suggest ridicule”
Harun Yahya
“There is a subtle danger that leads people away from religion, prevents them from submitting to God as their Lord, and ultimately, brings numerous other forms of trouble and distress upon them. This danger is ROMANTICISM, which leads people to live, not according to their reason, but according to their emotions; that is, according to their desires, hatreds, their susceptibility to temptations and their whims.”
Harun Yahya, Romanticism : A Weapon Of Satan
“At the same time believers realise that the defects they see in one another are tests from Allah. For this reason they don't call attention to these defects, but compensate for them by acting positively. They carefully avoid the slightest action, facial expression or word that would suggest ridicule.”
Harun Yahya
“I always wonder why birds stay in the same place when they can fly anywhere on the earth. Then I ask myself the same question.”
Harun Yahya
“Reconstructions based on bone remains can only reveal the most general characteristics of the creature, since the really distinctive morphological features of any animal are soft tissues which quickly vanish after death. Therefore, due to the speculative nature of the interpretation of the soft tissues, the reconstructed drawings or models become totally dependent on the imagination of the person producing them.”
Harun Yahya, The Evolution Deceit: The Scientific Collapse of Darwinism and its Ideological Background
“The texts of agreements made by the Prophet (saas) and those who succeeded him with various Christian, Jewish and other religious groups are today conserved as important documents. In the text of an agreement he had prepared for the Christian Ibn Harris bin Ka'b and his co-religionists, for instance, the Prophet (saas) first had the following words written: "The religion, churches, lives, chastity and goods of all Christians living in the East are under the protection of Allah and all believers. None of those living by Christianity will be forced to turn to Islam. If any Christian is subjected to any killing or injustice, Muslims must help him"65 and then read this verse from the Qur'an: "Only argue with the People of the Book in the kindest way …" (Surat al-'Ankabut: 46)”
Harun Yahya, The Prophet Muhammad
“Evolutionists have been digging fossil strata for about 140 years looking for these hypothetical forms. They have found millions of invertebrate fossils and millions of fish fossils; yet nobody has ever found even one that is midway between them.”
Harun Yahya, The Evolution Deceit: The Scientific Collapse of Darwinism and its Ideological Background
“The defeat of Darwinism in the face of science can be reviewed under three basic topics: 1) The theory cannot explain how life originated on Earth. 2) No scientific finding shows that the “evolutionary mechanisms” proposed by the theory have any evolutionary power at all. 3) The fossil record proves the exact opposite of what the theory suggests. In this section, we will examine these three basic points in general outlines:”
Harun Yahya, Names of Allah
“The Muslim way of speaking" is speaking in all instances with the use of one's conscience, in the knowledge that Allah is present, that His knowledge is all-encompassing, and that, on the Day of Judgment, all will be called to account in His presence.”
Harun Yahya, The Muslim Way of Speaking
“Verily, We have created all things with Qadar (Divine Preordainments of all things before their creation)” (Surat al-Qamar, 54:49) “No misfortune befalls on the earth or in yourselves but is inscribed in the Book of Decrees, before We bring it into existence. Verily, that is easy for Allah.“ (Surat al-Hadid, 57:22)”
Harun Yahya, The Moral Values of the Qur'an
“When we grasp that all of this world’s blessings are a
gift of Allah and are thankful for them, we please Allah. As
a result, we are always aware that the beauty, blessings,
and good things around us come from Him.
However, those who deny Allah do not see this truth.
Instead, they ignore Him and appease their desires and
passions. As they enjoy more and more of these blessings,
their discontent also increases, because they are consumed
by the maniacal desire to possess everything.
Instead of being content with what they have, they are
unhappy until they get even more. And as a result, they can
never fully appreciate the countless blessings and limitless
potentials that they already possess. For example, they
may have a fine car but become dissatisfied with it as soon
as a new model comes out. They believe that going on
vacation will end all of their difficulties; however, the slightest
setback causes them misery and anxiety. They do not
try to overcome their difficulties with patience and submission
to destiny, but become pessimistic and return even
more anxious and disappointed. Even if they had enjoyed
themselves, their pleasure is only temporary; the following
anxiety is far more enduring.”
Harun Yahya, Those Who Exhaust All Their Pleasures In This Life
“It was the Prophet (saas) who said "I was sent to perfect good character"2 and "By One in whose hand there is my life: None shall enter Paradise except one who has got good conduct."3”
Harun Yahya, The Prophet Muhammad

“... Because the staging of human embryos is complex,
owing to the continuous process of change during development,
it is proposed that a new system of classification could be developed
using the terms mentioned in the Qur'an and Sunnah. The proposed
system is simple, comprehensive, and conforms with present
embryological knowledge.287 (Dr. Keith L. Moore, Professor Emeritus,
Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology, University of Toronto)”
Harun Yahya, Allah's Miracles in the Qur'an
“Our Prophet (saas) says:
“Love Allah due to the blessings He gives to you, and love
me because Allah loves me.” (al-Tirmidhi)
Allah, in His infinite power and might, and out of His
love and compassion toward humanity, allows all people to
enjoy blessings in this life. Such people view getting up
and breathing the morning air as wonderful blessings, for
they take pleasure in the fact that He has given them
another day to win His favor. They consider being able to
walk, talk, laugh, and move as sources of happiness,
knowing that He could remove these blessings if He so
willed. Thus, they take great pleasure in this life.”
Harun Yahya, Those Who Exhaust All Their Pleasures In This Life
“The intensive studies of the Qur'an and Hadith in the last
four years have revealed a system of classifying human
embryos that is amazing since it was recorded in the seventh century
A.D... the descriptions in the Qur'an cannot be based on scientific
knowledge in the seventh century...288 (Dr. Keith L. Moore, Professor
Emeritus, Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology, University of
Toronto)”
Harun Yahya, Allah's Miracles in the Qur'an
“I think it is almost impossible that he [Prophet Muhammad
(saas)] could have known about things like the common
origin of the universe, because scientists have only found out within
the last few years with very complicated and advanced technological
methods that this is the case. Somebody who did not know something
about nuclear physics 1400 years ago could not, I think, be in a position
to find out from his own mind for instance that the earth and the heavens had the same origin, or many others of the questions that we have
discussed here. (Alfred Kroner, Professor of the Department of
Geosciences, University of Mainz, Germany. One of the world's most
famous geologists)”
Harun Yahya, Allah's Miracles in the Qur'an
“But if anyone turns away from My reminder, his life will
be a dark and narrow one and on the Day of
Resurrection We will gather him blind. (Surah Ta Ha:
124)
Only belief can save us from a life of anxiety, for we
cannot find true happiness on our own. Even if people are
rich, they cannot properly enjoy their wealth or enjoy the
blessings they possess. In order to do this, they must
understand how to appreciate them. For example, they
must realize that a carnation with perfectly arranged petals,
as well as its scent, softness, and incomparable beauty,
is a great blessing of creation. But only believers can
really understand this, because they know that whatever
exists is a gracious gift from Allah and that all blessings
come from Him. Therefore, they contemplate His infinite
creative power in every beautiful thing, thereby increasing
their love and attachment to Him.”
Harun Yahya, Those Who Exhaust All Their Pleasures In This Life
“All that we have seen in this work shows us one clear fact: The
Qur'an, this extraordinary book which was revealed to the Seal of the
Prophets, Muhammad (saas), is a source of inspiration and true knowledge.
The book of Islam-no matter what subject it refers to-is being
proved as Allah's word as each new piece of historical, scientific or
archaeological information comes to light. Facts about scientific subjects
and the news delivered to us about the past and future, facts that
no one could have known at the time of the Qur'an's revelation, are
announced in its verses. It is impossible for this information, examples
of which we have discussed in detail in this book, to have been known
with the level of knowledge and technology available in 7th century
Arabia. With this in mind, let us ask:
Could anyone in 7th century Arabia have known that our atmosphere
is made up of seven layers?

Could anyone in 7th century Arabia have known in detail the various
stages of development from which an embryo grows into a baby
and then enters the world from inside his mother?
Could anyone in 7th century Arabia have known that the universe
is "steadily expanding," as the Qur'an puts it, when modern scientists
have only in recent decades put forward the idea of the "Big Bang"?
Could anyone in 7th century Arabia have known about the fact
that each individual's fingertips are absolutely unique, when we have
only discovered this fact recently, using modern technology and modern
scientific equipment?
Could anyone in 7th century Arabia have known about the role of
one of Pharaoh's most prominent aids, Haman, when the details of
hieroglyphic translation were only discovered two centuries ago?
Could anyone in 7th century Arabia have known that
the word "Pharaoh" was only used from the 14th century
B.C. and not before, as the Old Testament erroneously
claims?
Could anyone in 7th century Arabia
have known about Ubar and Iram's Pillars, which were only discovered
in recent decades via the use of NASA satellite photographs?
The only answer to these questions is as follows: the Qur'an is the
word of the Almighty Allah, the Originator of everything and the One
Who encompasses everything with His knowledge. In one verse, Allah
says, "If it had been from other than Allah, they would have found
many inconsistencies in it." (Qur'an, 4:82) Every piece of information
the Qur'an contains reveals the secret miracles of this divine book.
The human being is meant to hold fast to this Divine Book
revealed by Allah and to receive it with an open heart as his one and
only guide in life. In the Qur'an, Allah tells us the following:
This Qur'an could never have been devised by any besides Allah.
Rather it is confirmation of what came before it and an elucidation of
the Book which contains no doubt from the Lord of all the worlds. Do
they say, "He has invented it"? Say: "Then produce a sura like it and call
on anyone you can besides Allah if you are telling the truth." (Qur'an,
10:37-38)
And this is a Book We have sent down and blessed, so follow it and
have fear of Allah so that hopefully you will gain mercy. (Qur'an, 6:155)”
Harun Yahya, Allah's Miracles in the Qur'an
“Stars are bright, hot, rotating masses of
gas which emit large quantities of light and heat as a result of nuclear
reactions. Most newly-forming large stars begin to collapse under the
weight of their own gravitational pull. That means that their centres are
hotter and denser. When the matter in the centre of the star is sufficiently
heated-when it reaches at least 10 million degrees Celsius (18
million degrees Fahrenheit)-nuclear reactions begin.56 What happens
inside a star is that with enormous energy (fusion), hydrogen turns into
helium. Nuclear fusion takes the particles that make up hydrogen and
sticks them together to make helium (1 helium atom is made from 4
hydrogen atoms). In order to make the protons and neutrons in the
helium stick together, the atom gives off tremendous energy. The energy
released in the process is radiated from the surface of the star as light
and heat. When the hydrogen is consumed, the star then begins to burn
with helium, in exactly the same way, and heavier elements are formed.
These reactions continue until the mass of the star has been consumed.
However, since oxygen is not used in these reactions inside stars,
the result is not ordinary combustion, such as that takes place when
burning a piece of wood. The combustion seen as giant flames in stars
does not actually derive from fire. Indeed, burning of just this kind is
described in the verse. If one also thinks that the verse refers to a star,
its fuel and combustion without fire, then one can also think that it is
referring to the emission of light and mode of combustion in stars.
(Allah knows best.)”
Harun Yahya, Allah's Miracles in the Qur'an
“This life has been created with blessings that are
deeply appealing to people, for:
He has given you everything you have asked Him for. If
you tried to number Allah’s blessings, you could never
count them. Humanity is indeed wrongdoing, ungrateful.
(Surah Ibrahim: 34)
Moreover, Allah allows us to enjoy these blessings as
we wish and informs us that if we thank Him, our blessings
will increase even more. However, these wonderful blessings
will be a cause of misery to those who are ungrateful.
This is one of the Qur’an’s deepest secrets, a manifestation
of Allah’s justice, and an important indication of the
wisdom of His creation. For those who see the true Way
and believe, He continually creates new opportunities and
shows them the beauty of belief and the darkness of the
unbelievers’ lives. So, whatever blessings people may
have cannot give them a sense of real security and contentment.
This, in fact, is Allah’s mercy toward His servants,
for by this means they can understand that only
believers who submit themselves to Allah can find true
happiness and contentment, and thus submit themselves
to Him.”
Harun Yahya, Those Who Exhaust All Their Pleasures In This Life
“When applying these studies
to the whole Qur'an, 50.08% is
rhymed with the letter "Nun." To
put it another way, more than
half the verses in the Qur'an end with the letter "Nun." In no literary
work of comparable length has it been possible to rhyme with a single
sound in more than half the text. This applies to all languages, not just
to Arabic.”
Harun Yahya, Allah's Miracles in the Qur'an
“The weight of clouds can reach quite astonishing proportions. For
example, a cumulonimbus cloud, commonly known as the thunder
cloud, can contain up to 300,000 tons of water.
The fact that a mass of 300,000 tons of water can remain aloft is
truly amazing. Attention is drawn to the weight of clouds in other verses
of the Qur'an:
It is He Who sends out the winds, bringing advance news of His mercy,
so that when they have lifted up the heavy clouds, We dispatch them to
a dead land and send down water to it, by means of which We bring
forth all kinds of fruit... (Qur'an, 7:57)
It is He Who shows you the lightning, striking fear and bringing hope;
it is He Who heaps up the heavy clouds. (Qur'an, 13:12)
At the time when the Qur'an was revealed, of course, it was quite
impossible to have any information about the weight of clouds. This
information, revealed in the Qur'an, but discovered only recently, is yet
another proof that the Qur'an is the word of Allah.”
Harun Yahya, Allah's Miracles in the Qur'an
“RAIN IN MEASURED AMOUNTS

Another item of information provided in the Qur'an about rain is
that it is sent down to Earth in "due measure." This is mentioned in
Surat az-Zukhruf as follows:
It is He Who sends down water in measured amounts from the sky by
which We bring a dead land back to life. That is how you too will be
raised [from the dead]. (Qur'an, 43:11)
This measured quantity in rain has again been discovered by modern
research. It is estimated that in one second, approximately 16 million
tons of water evaporates from the Earth. This figure amounts to
513 trillion tons of water in one year. This number is equal to the
amount of rain that falls on the Earth in a year. Therefore, water continuously
circulates in a balanced cycle, according to a "measure." Life
on Earth depends on this water cycle. Even if all the available technology
in the world were to be employed for this purpose, this cycle could
not be reproduced artificially.
Even a minor deviation in this equilibrium would soon give rise to
a major ecological imbalance that would bring about the end of life on
Earth. Yet, it never happens, and rain continues to fall every year in
exactly the same measure, just as revealed in the Qur'an.
The proportion of rain does not merely apply to its quantity, but
also to the speed of the falling raindrops. The speed of raindrops,
regardless of their size, does not exceed a certain limit.
Philipp Lenard, a German physicist who received the Nobel Prize
in physics in 1905, found that the fall speed increased with drop diameter
until a size of 4.5 mm (0.18 inch). For larger drops, however, the fall
speed did not increase beyond 8 metres per second (26 ft/sec).57 He
attributed this to the changes in drop shape caused by the air flow as
the drop size increased. The change in shape thus increased the air
Allah's Miracles in the Qur'an
113
resistance of the drop and slowed its fall rate.
As can be seen, the Qur'an may also be drawing our attention to
the subtle adjustment in rain which could not have been known 1,400
years ago.
Harun Yahya
Every year, the amount of water that evaporates and that falls back to the
Earth in the form of rain is "constant": 513 trillion tons. This constant
amount is declared in the Qur'an by the expression "sending down water in
due measure from the sky." The constancy of this quantity is very important
for the continuity of the ecological balance, and therefore, life.”
Harun Yahya, Allah's Miracles in the Qur'an
“When a general examination of the rhyme scheme in the Qur'an is
made, we see that around 80% of the rhymes consist of just three
sounds (n, m, a) consisting of the letters Alif, Mim, Ya and Nun258.
Excluding the letter "Nun," 30% of the verses are rhymed with "Mim,"
"Alif" or "Ya."

The formation of rhymed prose with just two or three sounds in a
poem of 200-300 lines may give that work an important quality, sufficient
for it to be described as a masterpiece by literary critics today.
However, bearing in mind the length of the Qur'an, the information it
contains and its wise exposition, the extraordinary manner in which its
rhymed prose system is used becomes even clearer and more beautiful.
The Qur'an indeed contains an ocean of information relating to a wide
variety of subjects. They include: religious and moral guidance, lessons
from the lives of the peoples of the past, the message of the prophets
and messengers of Allah, the physical sciences and historical accounts
of important events. But all of this, although wonderful in itself, is
delivered with the most fantastic literary rhythm and excellence. It is
simply not possible for so much rhymed prose by use of so few sounds
in the Qur'an, with its varied and knowledgeable subject matter, to be
achieved by human endeavour. From that point of view, it is not surprising
that Arab linguists describe the Qur'an as "very definitely inimitable.”
Harun Yahya, Allah's Miracles in the Qur'an
“By understanding the unbelievers’ situation, believers
can see the nightmare of unbelief and learn from it. As a
result, they will be very grateful to Allah for granting them
faith.”

“The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of honey were
revealed as a result of clinical observations and research. Honey
is exceedingly effective in painlessly cleaning up infection and
dead cells in these regions and in the development of new tissues.
The use of honey as a medicine is mentioned in the most ancient
writings. In the present day, doctors and scientists are rediscovering
the effectiveness of honey in the treatment of wounds.
Dr. Peter Molan, a leading researcher into honey for the last 20
years and a professor of biochemistry at New Zealand's University
of Waikato, says this about the antimicrobial properties of honey:
"Randomized trials have shown that honey is more effective in
controlling infection in burn wounds than silver sulphadiazine, the
antibacterial ointment most widely used on burns in hospitals.”
Harun Yahya, Allah's Miracles in the Qur'an
“Looking carefully at the professional lives of those who
do not follow the Qur’an’s morality, we can see that, for
them, working has become a trouble and a vicious circle.
To reach their jobs on time, they have to get up early,
which means that they must sleep early. And then there is
all the time that they have to spend to get to work, bathing,
eating, cleaning, running errands, and meeting all of the
countless needs of daily life. Seeing that they have at most
maybe a couple of hours each day to really enjoy themselves,
they become angry and depressed.”
Harun Yahya, Those Who Exhaust All Their Pleasures In This Life
