are innumerable kinds of living creatures on the face of the
earth. From pets such as cats, which we come across everyday,
to animals inhabiting virgin forests, every species has wondrous
features and amazing skills. For example we are surprised
to see how bees can build such perfect honeycombs and can
do calculations as if they were expert mathematicians. As
we see how considerate a crocodile or a lion is to its young,
we wonder how such wild animals can behave so affectionately.
We seek an answer to the question how can little birds, which
cover thousands of kilometres during a non-stop migration,
perform this hard task. The more detailed information we get,
the more amazed we become.
living being has a particular body structure. Some fly, others
swim. For example the body structure of a fish is exactly
as it needs for life underwater. It has the lungs, eyes and
skin that enable it to live underwater. The lungs and feathers
of birds have the structures that enable them to fly. There
is no doubt that these living creatures did not by themselves
obtain the skills or body structures with which they carry
out extraordinary tasks. These creatures are not the ones
who invented the tasks, each of which is more astonishing
than another. They could not possibly have learnt the tasks
they carry out by chance either. It is not possible for them
to know all these things unless there is someone who taught
them everything they do. Besides, there should be someone
who designed the structure they needed and placed it in their
bodies. There is a Being Who is exalted in power and intelligence.
This being is our Lord, Who created us as well as all other
living creatures. Allah gave all the features they possess.
may already know these facts, however there are some people
who claim the opposite. Did you know that these people claim
that living creatures obtained all the wonderful features
they have by chance? And have you heard that they named these
nonsensical claims "the theory of evolution"? Moreover, even
though all branches of science have revealed the fallacy of
the claims of the theory of evolution, these people do not
give up maintaining this senseless claim.
this book, we will examine the wondrous features of living
creatures. By giving examples of the claims of evolutionists,
we will also show how senseless the theory is. As you read
the book, you will be surprised to see how mistaken professors,
engineers and scientists who believe in the theory of evolution
could be. (For further information about evolutionists see
Wonders of Allah's Creation by Harun Yahya, Taha Publishers,
In fact, factual information
about living creatures is too abundant to be collected even
in volumes of books. For this reason only some examples will
be examined in this book. Yet, even with these few examples,
you will be able to better comprehend the greatness of Allah,
Who created these pretty creatures for us, and how much He
loves us. You will reflect on what you'll learn and will be
eager to tell it to others.
He is Allah - the Creator,
the Maker, the Giver of Form. To Him belong the Most
Beautiful Names. Everything in the heavens and earth
glorifies Him. He is the Almighty, the All-Wise.
(Surat al-Hashr: 24)
