http://www.harunyahya.com/en/Daily-Comments/200679/The-creation-characteristics-of-zebra-stripes Have you ever thought why zebras have black and white stripes?What could be the wonder of the stripes these beings possess?Every being, animate or inanimate, has a color. Moreover, there are the same colors of the same species  all over the world. No matter where you go, the color of kiwis are green, the seas are blue or tints of blue and the snow is white. The color of elephants is the same everywhere in the world; the colors of trees is also the same. This situation does not change for artificially produced colors. No matter where you go in the world, if you mix yellow with red, and black and white, you get orange and gray respectively. This also never changes. The black and white stripes of zebras are like this. The common specialty of zebras living in different parts of the world is their black and white stripes. These stripes, which have different wonders, provide great benefits fo…

Being a Time Engineer

Have you ever considered the value of time?     Have you ever thought about the passing seconds, minutes, hours, days, months and years?     The time we experience moment by moment sometimes appears to slow down. Yet after hours or days pass by, one realizes that time passes very fast. Everyone is recently complaining about how fast time is passing by, so much so that almost everyone must have heard their friends saying things like, “We were together last week, but it seems like only yesterday!” “I washed my car just last week and how quickly it got dirty again!” So how well do we make use of this valuable time we are given that passes by so fast? Time Passes Quickly When we reflect a little, we can see that the time we have left in this world is diminishing rapidly. A person experiences many things between babyhood and maturity; such as school, working life and career; then one’s day-to-day activities add onto that as well. When things like tests in school, a busy work environment and res…

Remembering Allah in times of trials

Every person has moments in life that may be called difficult. Most people, who live away from the moral values of the Qur’an, experience these moments with feelings like discomfort, sadness and boredom. In such environments, they display traits of aggressiveness, tension and a disputatious attitude. The reason for these reactions is that they do not have faith in Allah and the perfection of the destiny He created. The reasons, which prevent these people seeing the goodness behind these events, can be summed up as follows:

Some people think that most of their lives develop as a result of coincidences in a flow. Everything from big incidents like having cancer or losing a close one in a traffic accident, to the food he eats or the clothes he wears are special events preordained in that person’s destiny. Allah creates all these incidents down to the finest detail for that person’s trial.

Bigots’ Futile Attempts to Discredit Art

Bigots’ Futile Attempts to Discredit Art By Adnan Oktar
http://www.jeffersoncorner.com/bigots-futile-attempts-to-discredit-art/
Bigots take it on themselves to banish everything and every one that represents beauty and aesthetics. To be able to do that, they didn’t hesitate to forge fake hadiths shamelessly attributed to Prophet Mohammed (pbuh).
Through these false hadiths the fanatics make painting and sculpture unlawful for Muslims. Indeed, according to some fabricated hadiths, painters are regarded as among those who will suffer the worst torment in the hereafter. According to this perverse perspective, these people have attributed divinity to themselves, may God forbid, by imitating His creations. Yet what possible connection could there be between a painter or sculpture producing a work of art and claims of divine status? If a painter or a sculptor does make such a perverse claim, that can only be because of weakness of mind or soul, not because of the art he produces. And that is a …

Islam has no place for selfish desires

Allah Almighty has created the human soul with a predisposition to selfishness as a test. Unless he lives by the moral values of the Qur’an and tames his earthly desires, this feeling will come to dominate his whole moral framework.
Such a person generally thinks of himself alone, rather than everyone else. He always wants the best, finest and most perfect of everything for himself. He wants to have possessions and children and for his own family merely to be comfortable. In face of difficulties, he will expect the people around him to undergo all kinds of risks and troubles for him and to support him, even at the cost of their own interests. He seeks to protect his own whims and interests and to ensure his own ease and comfort.


When the situation is different he can forgo many things he values, for the sake of protecting his own interests and preventing any harm coming to him.

Those who trust Allah never lose hope

One of the important characteristics of a Muslim is that he remains in a positive state of mind, whatever the circumstances. He tries for the best and look for wisdom.
A Muslim is never in despair, not even in most difficult moments. That is because they believe that Allah is the Creator of all things; that He has the power to create whatever He wants by saying it to “Be!”
The faithful knows that any trying times, he finds himself in, are a God-sent test. He takes things in his stride, recalling what Allah Almighty has advised him: “...it may be that you hate something when it is good for you and it may be that you love something when it is bad for you. Allah knows and you do not know.” (Qur’an, 2:216)
Everything turns positive for a Muslim with such a depth of soul. Whether it be trouble or difficulty, it is Allah Who bestows them on that person. He is believers’ Helper and Guardian. Any…

Calling others to divine truth a must for believers

Image
HARUN YAHYA Published — Friday 6 March 2015
What’s there in Islam that the believers feel so enthusiastic to tell others about? What indeed makes a Muslim remain egged on when it comes to Islam?
Allah Almighty commanded there be a group among believers who call people to the good and the right: “Let there be a community among you who call to the good, and enjoin the right, and forbid the wrong. They are the ones who have success.” (Qur’an, 3:104)
In light of this verse, sincere Muslims feel it as an obligation on their part to tell others about Islam, its beauty and the morality therein, as also the futility of living in a manner not in sync with this spiritual morality.
Having fully grasped the import of ethics in one’s life, they want others too to experience the same. They know what awaits in the hell for those who live a rebellious life; and hence these believers want people to live a life that pleases Allah Almighty and which saves them from Hell’s torment.
It is therefore obligatory …

From Mr. Adnan Oktar’s interview on A9 TV on 20 February 2015


Adnan Oktar: See, we are working against Darwinism. A great many people are watching. What does Darwinism mean? Blatant denial of God. What does materialism mean? Blatant denial of God. Materialism is the child of Darwinism. It is born out of it. The essential thing is Darwinism. - God commands us to “Struggle with them until there is no more mischief and the religion belongs to God alone,” in one verse. You have identified the source, the root of the corruption in the world, Darwinism, and you have been striving against it for years. Adnan Oktar: We go and visit teachers of theology and say. ‘Darwinism is a grave threat.’ ‘Where did you get that idea from? The Qur’an speaks of Darwinism,’ they say. See, they are in a state of surrender. They seek a system that denies God in the Qur’an. Please! My brother, that is impossible. Darwinism denies God. It says that humans were created by chance out of a bit if mud. It says, ‘Someth…
