Ramadan 2012, The 30th Day
verse hadith
There is no compulsion in religion. True guidance has become clearly distinct from error. (Surat al-Baqara, 256)
"I was sent as a tolerant, seeker after Allah (one from the faith of the prophet Ibrahim(as)), and whoever opposes my Sunna is not one of us.” (Al-Jamis Sagir, 1. 427)
adnan oktar_says
In brief, nobody should go along with idiots who try to portray Islam and horrible and filthy. That is out of the question. Being a Muslim is the lifestyle of the best quality people in the world. Just think, how can a person be most perfect? Living by Islam. How can he be the best and highest quality? Living by Islam. The pleasantest, the most intelligent, the cleanest, the most accurate in his actions, the finest thinking, the most modest, the most affectionate, the most humane… I could go on for ever. Muslim is what you call someone who integrates all these qualities. Who knows Allah and is fully submitted to Him. Of course, knowing Allah is very important. (A9 TV, May 10, 2012)

Islam Encourages Freedom Of Thought And Denounces Oppression And Compulsion
The Qur’an is a Book revealed to people as a guide to the true path and in this Book, Allah commands man to adopt good morals. This morality is based upon concepts such as love, compassion and mercy. The word “Islam” is derived from the word meaning “peace” in Arabic. Islam is a religion revealed to mankind with the intention of presenting a peaceable life through which the infinite compassion and mercy of Allah manifest on earth. Allah calls all people to Islamic morals through which compassion, mercy and peace can be experienced all over the world. In Surat al-Baqara, verse 208, Allah addresses believers as follows:
O You who believe! Enter absolutely into peace (Islam). Do not follow in the footsteps of satan. He is an outright enemy to you.
As the verse makes clear, security can only be ensured by “entering into Islam”, that is, living by the values of the Qur’an. The values of the Qur’an hold a Muslim responsible for treating all people, whether Muslim or non-Muslim, kindly and justly, protecting the needy and the innocent and preventing the “dissemination of mischief”. Mischief comprises all forms of anarchy and terror that remove security, comfort and peace. As Allah says in a verse, "Allah does not love corruption".  (Surat al-Baqara, 205)
Islam is a religion which provides and guarantees freedom of ideas, thought and life. It has issued commands to prevent and forbid tension, disputes, slander and even negative thinking among people. In the same way that it is determinedly opposed to terrorism and all acts of violence, it has also forbidden even the slightest ideological pressure to be put on them:
There is no compulsion in religion. True guidance has become clearly distinct from error. (Surat al-Baqara, 256)
Forcing people to believe in a religion or to adopt its forms of belief is completely contrary to the essence and spirit of Islam. That is because according to Islam, true faith is only possible with free will and freedom of conscience. Of course, Muslims can advise and encourage each other about the features of Qur’anic morality. All believers are charged with explaining Qur’anic morality to people in the nicest manner possible. They will explain the beauties of religion in the light of the verse, “Call to the way of your Lord with wisdom and fair admonition...” (Surat an-Nahl, 125)however, they must also bear in mind the verse, “You are not responsible for their guidance, but Allah guides whoever He wills.” (Surat al-Baqara, 272)
They will never resort to compulsion, nor any kind of physical or psychological pressure. Neither will they use any worldly privilege to turn someone towards religion. When they receive a negative response to what they say, Muslims will reply along the lines of: “To you your religion, and to me, mine” (Surat al-Kafirun, 6)
The world we live in contains societies with all kinds of beliefs: Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, atheist, deist and even pagan. Muslims living in such a world must be tolerant of all beliefs they come up against, no matter what they may be, and behave forgivingly, justly and humanely. This responsibility placed on believers invites people to the beauty of the religion of Allah by means of peace and tolerance. The decision whether or not to implement these truths, whether or not to believe, lies with the other party. Forcing that person to believe, or trying to impose anything on him, is a violation of Qur’anic morality. In fact, Allah issues a reminder to believers in the Qur’an:
If your Lord had willed, all the people on the earth would have believed. Do you think you can force people to be believers? (Surah Yunus, 99)
A model of society in which people are forced to worship is completely contradictory to Islam. Belief and worship are only of any value when they are directed to Allah by the free will of the individual. If a system imposes belief and worship on people, then they will become religious out of fear of that system. From the religious point of view, what really counts is that religion should be lived for Allah’s good pleasure in an environment where peoples’ consciences are totally free.
Because some people do not know these facts or due to misinformation, they may have some erroneous opinions about Islam. However when they learn and experience that Islam is instrumental in approaching people with love and respect as well as not presenting any threat to modernization, freedom of faith and thought, they will, by Allah’s leave, put aside these attitudes and thoughts. In one verse of the Qur’an, our All Mighty Lord of infinite mercy relates thus:
“Say: ‘Truth has come and falsehood has vanished. Falsehood is always bound to vanish. (Surat al-Isra’, 81)

The Invalidity Of The Claim That ''Evolution Has Nothing To Do With Chance''
One of the issues that Darwinists have recently taken to espousing is the claim that “evolution has nothing to do with chance.” This claim, proposed with the incomprehensible and specious idea that “everything happened randomly, but that does not mean by chance,” serves no other purpose than to reveal how illogical Darwinists’ claims are.
-          This claim, developed as a defense mechanism, was raised after everyone had realized how illogical the word chance was.
-           It reflects Darwinists’ embarrassment over that idea.
-          Because if Darwinists admit that fact, then everyone will realize that they are espousing the nonsensical idea that all the extraordinary complexity in living things came about by chance. Unwilling to suffer such embarrassment, Darwinists have sought a way out by saying, “we make no such claim.”
-          They are trying to avoid this embarrassment by producing other words that mean exactly the same thing as chance. They are trying to give the impression that they are making a more logical statement my using terms such as “random” instead.
-          When asked, “if it is not chance, then what is it?” they again end up referring to chance from a more roundabout route.
-          When they reject the idea of chance, Darwinists must admit the existence of a consciousness. But Darwinists reject any conscious intervention and conscious creation. In that case, what they espouse must therefore only be unconscious and chance phenomena. Anything else would be illogical.
Embarrassed by their claim of chance, Darwinists maintain that natural selection, a conscious mechanism, is responsible. But it is unclear to whom that consciousness belongs. They are ascribing consciousness to nature here. If what Darwinists mean by nature is the ideology of naturalism, that falsely deifies nature, then they are clearly adopting another pagan religion.
-          By saying this, Darwinists are trying to deceive people into thinking that nature has intelligence and the ability to distinguish between truth and falsehood and to foresee the future. They are ascribing a power to it by referring to natural selection. The fact is, however, that nature is a single whole made up of stones, soil, trees, mountains, gravel etc. There is of course no possibility of these being able to select anything in the best and most perfect manner. This is therefore just another improper element of Darwinist demagoguery.
Darwinists reject the idea of a consciousness at any stage in their claims, because they would otherwise have to accept the existence of Almighty Allah. They therefore have to espouse a lack of consciousness, in other words, chance.
Our Prophet’s (Saas) Addresses To Hazrat Mahdi (As)
Hazrat Mahdi (as) is the peacock (adornment) of the Paradise. (Bihar al-Anwar, Vol 51, p. 105)

Hazrat Mahdi (as), one of my children, comes into being, by the blessing of Allah, upon the approach of the Day of Judgment; the weakening of the believers' hearts because of death, hunger, fitnah and the disappearance of the Sunnah; and the emergence of innovations and the loss of means by which to enjoin the right and forbid the wrong. His justice and prosperity will ease the believers' hearts, and friendship and love will settle between the non-Arab and the Arab nations. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 66)

Imam Hussain (as)'is reported as saying: “When Hazrat Mahdi (as) appears, people will not recognize him. Then HE [HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)] WILL COME HAVING A BEAUTIFUL VISAGE...” (Iqdud Durar, p. 41)

A MAN CALLED AL-HARITH IBN HARRATH (LION) WILL COME FORTH FROM MA WARA AN-NAHR (TRANSOXIANA). His army will be led by a man called Mansur who will establish or consolidate things for Muhammad's family as Quraysh consolidated them for the Messenger of Allah (saas). Every believer must help him(Sunan Abu Dawud, Book 36, 4277;Narrated Ali ibn AbuTalib;At-Taj al-jami' lil 'usul fi ahadith al-Rasul, Mansur 'Ali Nasif, Vol. 5, p. 617)
