The Alliance of the Good

Assalamun Alaykum wa Rahmatullah Dear Brother/Sister,

Insha'Allah this letter finds you in the best of health and iman.

Elhamdulillah, it is very pleasing for us, Muslims to see that Internet, a blessing from Allah, is used by Muslims in the best way to exalt Allah's name and communicate Allah's righteous religion to humanity. Maashallah, the name of Allah is outstandingly mentioned and remembered in your site just as is due.

The viewpoint of the author that is prevalent in his works is to elucidate and explain the apparent evidences of Creation in every part of the universe and in this respect, he has written several books on the collapse of the theory of evolution that denies divine creation by God. Quoting from the 22 April 2000 issue of New Scientist, "..Harun Yahya is an international hero. His books have spread everywhere in the Islamic world. He has developed his own Islamic creationism..." (New Scientist, 22 April 2000, No. 2235) The devotion of the author to this goal has caused the collapse of Darwinism and Darwinist claims in Turkey, where scientists are no longer able to say anything in support of the theory of evolution.

As a matter of fact this is revealed in an article in May 18 2001 issue of Science magazine under the title of "Creationism Takes Root Where Europe, Asia Meet" by Robert Koenig: "After being 'outed' as Darwinists, many scientists here (Turkey) fear they are losing ground to Turkish creationists in the wider court of public opinion. Experts call it the best organized and financed in the Islamic world--to discredit the teaching of evolution. The group's few hundred active members, mostly volunteers, have developed a Web site and enlisted speakers from U.S.-based creationist organizations to appear at antievolution events across Turkey. They've (SRF) also swamped the country with sophisticated books such as The Evolution Deceit and The Dark Face of Darwinism (both published under the pseudonym Harun Yahya), which some scientists complain have become more influential than textbooks in certain parts of the country." The writer goes on saying that this group "has developed one of the world's strongest antievolution movements outside of North America and has been making inroads in other Muslim nations". (Science, 18 May 2001, Volume 292, Number 5520) Besides, the magazine comments below the picture of the book, The Evolution Deceit: "Creating a stir. Books like The Evolution Deceit appear to be gaining readership." (Science, 18 May 2001, Volume 292, Number 5520)

Harun Yahya's books deal with the miracles of Allah's creation in nature, the fallacy of the theory of evolution, The Qur'an and Science, the Freemasons and the New World Order, political issues concerning the Ummah, and faith related topics from the Qur'an. His most famous books which have been best sellers in England are The Evolution Deceit, Perished Nations, For Men of Understanding, The Truth of the Life of This World, Allah is Known Through Reason, and The Miracle in the Ant. Some other books translated into English and other languages are; Never Plead Ignorance, Deep Thinking, Allah's Artistry in Color, Solution: The Morals of the Qur'an, Children! Darwin Was Lying and The Miracle in the Atom, Allah Is Known Through Reason, The Miracle In The Ant, The Moral Values in the Qur'an, Ever Thought About The Truth?, Basic Concepts in the Qur'an, and The Crude Understanding of Disbelief, The Miracle of the Immune System, The Miracle in the Spider, The Creation of the Universe, The Importance of Conscience in the Qur'an, Death-Resurrection and Hell and Timelessness and The Reality of Fate.

His frequently updated web page (, where all of his books, strongly documented and supported with many colorful illustrations and pictures, and appealing and convincing to all Muslims from every age, group, and culture as well as non-Muslims, are published on-line. This is a unique service one can hardly come across on the Internet. Everyday, tens of Muslims visit this page and state their kind appreciations for the useful information posted on the site. Many of the biggest Islamic Internet sites already have a corner of Harun Yahya in their page, or have given a link to his site. Some of these sites are:

Insha'Allah, we wish that your visitors, too, make use of this site and read Harun Yahya's books, which completely change one's outlook on the world. I also think that this is important in the sense that it is the implementation of an advice given in the Qur'an on the alliance of the good, that is, sincere Muslims. Allah states in the Qur'an that "Muslims are friends and protectors of one another" (9:71), they "help each other to goodness and taqwa" (5:2) and "struggle in His Way in ranks like well-built walls" (61:4).

Looking forward to hearing your soonest reply,

Salaams, Yours in Islam,

Some reviews about his books that appeared in various magazines and written by various scholars are shortly as follows:

...Harun Yahya is an international hero. His books have spread everywhere in the Islamic world. He has developed his own Islamic creationism...
- New Scientist, 22 April 2000, no. 2235

I read these books, thoroughly examined them and felt an inner admiration for this person's faith and knowledge since such important information were compiled in an excellent way. I believe that his books are a treasure for the Turkish youth as well as the young people all over the world.
- Wali Razi, Pakistan State Minister

The book is well written and documented for all intellectual Muslims, and believers of other religions. The voice of Harun Yahya should be echoed by all Muslim educated circles throughout the world. This book can serve as a good reference source for students of inter-disciplinary courses at different levels of education.
- Reviewed by Md. Maimul Ahsan Khan, Ph.D. in Law, Fulbright Scholar, Visiting Law Professor at University of Illinois, USA.

This book is excellent not only in presenting the Islamic viewpoint on evolution, but it could also be very useful for the people of all faiths who have a common creationist perspective with Muslims.
- Dr. Muzammil H. Siddiqui, President, The Islamic Society of North America, Adjunct Professor of Islamic Studies and World Religions At California State University, Fullerton, USA

As a professor of biological sciences, and a scholar who was trained all my life at the American University in Beirut, and then from the Universtiy of Illinois, USA, I was fascinated and very much impressed with the writings of Professor Harun Yahya.
- Dr. Ahmad H. Sakr, Ph.D., President Foundation for Islamic Knowledge

I admire the evidences provided by you strongly refuting the evolutionist theory. I have enjoyed reading it and I applaud the work that has gone into it with veracious proof.
- Dr. Hamid Khan, BSME, MSIE, MBA, Ph.D., PE, School of Industry and Technology,     East Carolina University, U.S.A., Review about The Evolution Deceit

I am a Muslim from Bosnia and Herzegovina, right now working as a scientist assistant here at Boston University. I have always had many questions about what Islam has to say to the accusations of some scientists. And now I have found answers to many of my questions.
- By [Name withheld], Scientist Assistant at Boston University

Scientifically, with appropriate illustrations, the author proves that each organism of every species was Divinely created perfect and complete from its very inception with everything required for a successful life.
- Maryam Jameelah, Lahore Pakistan, The Muslim World Book Review, Vol. 20, no: 3, Spring 2000, by the Islamic Foundation and The International Institute of Islamic Thought.

A reader from Britain , 27 December, 1999
Absolutely shocking. This is one of the best books I've ever read and has changed my view of neo-darwinian evolution theory completely. I think it is fair to say that it destroys the theory on a scientific basis, which I have always, until reading the book, believed to be proven beyond reasonable doubt. Read it!
