One the most important factors for the continued
existence of any country is its defence capability. As a nation, it must
be in a constant state of preparedness to face all kinds of threats and
dangers from external and internal sources. No matter how well developed
and advanced a country may be, if it fails to defend itself, it could
be brought to ruin with the launching of even a minor military offensive
against it, or even a well-directed and unanticipated terrorist act. In
the face of such threats, neither its natural resources, its technological
prowess, not its economy will be of any avail. If the country in question
is unable to defend itself, it may even cease to exist.
This is one of the reasons why significant amounts
of the national income is regularly allocated to defence; nowadays,
armed forces have to be provided with the most advanced weaponry,
tools and equipment fitted with the latest technological features,
and meticulous training has to be given to soldiers in an all-out attempt
to keep defence systems fully functional.
No less than countries, people too have to be concerned
about their defence, if they want to lead a healthy and peaceful
life. They inevitably have to protect themselves and their possession
against criminal acts, such as theft and murder, as well as against
natural disasters, such as accidents, fire, earthquakes and
But this is not the end of the matter. Human beings have other enemies,
which go unseen by them and, as such, are often ignored. Actually,
these enemies are much more resilient than the others. Serious measures
must, therefore, be taken to guard against them.
Who, or what then these enemies that keep
human beings under constant threat?
They are bacteria, viruses, and similar microscopic
organisms, which may exist in the water we drink, the food we eat, the
house we live in, and the office where we work. In essence, they are everywhere.
Most interestingly, in spite of being surrounded
by such a serious threat, we make no effort whatsoever to protect ourselves
against it. This is because there is a mechanism within our bodies, which
undertakes this task on our behalf, providing the necessary protection
for us, without causing us the slightest disturbance. This is "The Defence
It is one of the most important and amazing systems operating within our
bodies, for it undertakes one of the most vital missions of life. We may
not be aware of it, but all the elements of the immune system protect
our bodies just like the soldiers of a huge army. The defence cells that
protect the human body against invaders, such as bacteria, viruses, and
similar micro-organisms, are equipped with extraordinary abilities. The
patterns of intelligence, effort, and sacrifice, which these cells display
during the war they wage in the body, astonish everyone who learns about
People in general would like to know what makes
them ill, how illnesses take complete control of their bodies, what causes
fever, fatigue, pain in their bones and joints, and which processes take
place in their bodies throughout their illnesses.
The main purpose of this book is to explore how
this system, which protects the human body just like a disciplined, organized
army, has come into being and how it works.
These two points will lead us to very important
conclusions. First, we shall together witness the uniqueness and the perfection
in Allah’s creation. Second, we shall observe what contradictions the
theory of evolution, a superstitious belief having no verification whatsoever,
includes within its own reasoning, and on what an unsound basis it was
Before proceeding to the main topic, it will be
useful to state another important point: In books on the immune system,
you will often see statements such as:
"We do not yet know how this formed…"
These statements are actually important confessions.
These are expressions of the helplessness people experience at the outset
of the 21st century — even with all the latest technology and accumulated
knowledge at their disposal — in the face of the miraculous work these tiny
cells accomplish. The tasks achieved by these microorganisms include such
intricate operations that the human mind can barely grasp the details of
this well established system. There is obviously a secret wisdom hidden
in the immune system which eludes man’s understanding.
"The reason still remains unknown…"
"Research on the topic is under way …"
"According to a theory…"
As you read this book, you will witness the superiority
of this wisdom, hidden both in your cells and in other details pertaining
to your body. The ultimate conclusion is that this could only be the wisdom
of a supreme "Creator".
Science may one day succeed in solving all the
secrets of the immune system and even produce a similar artificial system
by imitating the actions of these cells. No doubt, this task will require
highly educated professionals using the most sophisticated technology
and instruments available, working in highly advanced laboratories. The
most important point here is that the accomplishment of such a task would
once again invalidate the theory of evolution, proving that such a system
cannot originate by coincidence.
The likelihood of the spontaneous development of
a mechanism such as the defence system currently seems too remote. As
scientists unravel the secrets of this system, they are enthralled by
the design they encounter. The points that are revealed lead to many other
questions, which make the wisdom and consciousness in the cell all the
more apparent. Therefore, it has become very clear that the defence system,
like all the other systems in the body, could not have developed gradually,
just by chance, as suggested by the theory of evolution.
The main purpose of this book is to introduce you
to these "brave warriors" within you, while also proving to you that this
mind-boggling system is a special sign of creation. In relation to this,
we will see how the scenarios formulated by the theory of evolution are
demolished and rendered meaningless when faced with the facts. The topic
which will be particularly highlighted here, is not the biological details
of the defence system, which are easily accessible in any book of biology
or medicine, but the miraculous aspect of the system. We have especially
avoided the unnecessary use of biological and physiological terms in order
to make the contents of the book easily understandable to readers of all
ages and professions.
Lastly, we want to remind you that even now, you
are totally indebted to your defence system if you are able to read this
book peacefully, without being infected by the microbes all around you.
Had the immune system not existed in your body, you would never have been
able to read this book, having left this world even before you learned
reading and writing.
