Let's face it: most of us who've lately been reading books on Islam and the Qur'an are doing so to understand a religion we for the most part ignored prior to 9/11. We're putting ourselves through a crash course on Islam and Islamic culture in the hopes that we can figure out what Islam's basic tenets are, and how it is that the Taliban and al-Qaida can claim the religion as their justification for repression and terror.
Obviously one of the first places to start is with the Qur'an itself. But to Westerners who've never opened it, the book can be intimidating and arcane. Harun Yahya lectures on the Qur'an is a decent good introduction to its structure, basic principles, interpretation, and history.
Some points in harun's book are of more immediate service to the beginner than others. Harun's discussion of the difficulties encountered in translating the Qur'an's Arabic into other languages may not be of great interest to the beginner. But his overview of the various Muslim schools of exegesis or interpretation certainly will be, for this discussion begins to reveal to the reader that there's no more of a uniform way of reading the Qur'an than there is of reading the Hebrew and Christian Bibles. As a consequence, Qur'anic verses can mean different things to Muslims coming from different exegetical traditions. Harun Yahya illustrates this point in in his book 'Íslam denounce terror' by discussing the "sword verse" (Sura 9:5) and the "tribute verse" (Sura 9:29). These two verses are frequently appealed to by commentators on Islam's attitude to "infidels." Harun does a fine job of showing that the verses can be read either as harshly intolerant or as live-and-let-live, depending on how one parses the text.
One of the many merits Harun Yahya Theologic books is that Harun encourages us to think about the meaning of "sacred scripture" in general. Whatever else scripture is, regardless of the religious tradition we're talking about, it's fluid and living and multi-layered. To condemn a sacred text on the basis of a cursory reading and a literal interpretation of a few ambiguous verses is a rush to judgment.

fascinating and revealing books with a savvy, fair-minded analysis.These books provides the most readable accounts about Islam, God and the secret world order.
Carolien Te velde, Student Theology. University Brussel, Belguim
Unlike the spiritual works of Buddhists, Hindus, Christians, and Jews, the Koran is little studied, nor understood, by non-Muslims. Here, Mr Andar Octar explains the structure, origin, and meaning of the Koran, and places it in a firm historical and religious context. While most non-Muslims will not read the Koran (especially in Arabic), these books give enough of an explaination that the read will have some idea of the core teaching of Islam.
The most powerful work in Islam for non-moslims I think are these books by Harun Yahya especially the sections on archeology, moral value, Life of the prophets, and contemporary accounts of non-Arab literature in his footnotes at the end of each book he used.
Henk Geul, Student Chemie, University Brussel, Belguim
A powerful and important work, beautifully written and edited, and based on a range of good sources.

I am very glad that I happened onto your website Harun Yahya. I am very impressed by the scope of your interests and the accessibility of your references. I will check in with you occasionally.
Maher, Designer, USA
As our bodies needs food, our minds needs knowledge and our hearts needs joys... We keep forgetting about our souls.
Everyone has his/her own way of explaining the spiritual-needs. Yet, Harun Yahya's is one of the simplest websites that may guide you to "understand" yourself and to know what you need.
Harun Yahya is a site which is directed to everyone of every origin, religion and educational level.

These are really major contribution to understanding the Middle East and world politics./ Hanna Heuvelweg
Harry Matra, Student Mathematic, University Brussel, Belguim
Great Books! You certainly sound like an honest idealstic person, respectful without hatred to those who believe not in God, and I respect your right to be an theist/muslim.
You seem to me a very intellectual person too, very focused on proving your conclusions. Keep up the good work.
Ivana van de berg, Student Law, University Brussel, Belguim
You obviously have a sound mind, and I respect your views Mr harun Yahya. Although I don't hold to literal inerrancy except in the original autographs, I do hold the Bible to be the closest thing we have to God's revealed is truth.
But I would like to thank you for providing so many thought provoking, interesting and yet unbiased books about Islam,science and politics.Reading your articles and books is always a pleasure.I am very gratefull of your RSF (your nice Islamic student orgnization) presence here in some of our Belguim/Dutch Universities.And your wonderfull webpage about 'Union of Faith'..Your outlook to your brothers and sisters of the 'people of the book'. May God bless you!
Izawra, student, United States
I am very thankful for your website you created Harun Yahya. This website is like a book to me. It teaches me things I never knew and it made me stay closer to Islam. I am really interested in stories especially in the life of all prophets, life, why thins occured the way they are. I was just suggesting: Could you please add stories of the life of all prophets, life, why things occured the way they are.(ex.: why do we pray 5 times a day?
Is there a reason for it?) Thank you for taking your time to read this.
Tom bruinsma, Student Sociology, University Brussel, Belguim
Hallo Friends, I am very glad that I have received a few weeks ago the four books about Freemasonic through RSF (an very intellectuel university muslim student organisation) who are sympaticed/alliance with Harun Yahya 's organisation in Turkey and publishing and sending us files through e-mail once every two weeks about his work here, with an self made technical footnote analyse for the sceptics.
I have to admit honestly that there is more going on in this world than I previous though. Many students in my University in Brussel accused Harun Yahya of being a clever conspiration Theorist, but why was Harun Yhaya prisoned for 19 months in Turkey (in a democratic country ! ). I think because he told the true and they (this secret organisation) didn't want to hear the true so that it will be spread out.
I encourage Harun Yahya to keep on writing, about history, politics and science, you are more popular than you might think in the west. more and more young muslims and non muslims like are reading serrious your books.
Jeroen Houdhakker, Middle east expert, for the University Leiden, Holland
These thought-provoking books... carefully reasoned... for all students of Islam, Middle East experts (like me), and non muslim institutions will all profit from this stimulating books written by an Islamic thinker who are very rare at this moment to find in the Islamic world.
David de Hut, Research team on Middle East affairs, University Brussel, Belguim
As a professional historian and trained Arabist in Belguim, I was astonishingly surprised by the books of Harun YaHya and his provocative and insightful tour through the pitfalls of politics, history and culture.The books,audio and video's provides, in many volumes, a great deal of information on many important issues relating to Islam.
Martijn Kaufman, Student Sociology, University Brussel, Belguim
Scholarly, far-ranging, and thoughtful,, the books are interesting, and Mr. Andar Octar has make a stimulating contribution to Islam in the West with his cogent study of Islam as a new moral ethical force in the modern world. No doubt I think this work is among the outstanding contributions to public-policy debates about the real face of Islam.
Reza Iqbal, Student majoring Computer Science, Indonesia
I was born as a moslem and I believe this is the right faith. But sometimes, I ask my self a question: "How if I was wrong?" Eventhough, that question won't convert my religion, but it still bothering me. But, now, I realize that I shouldn't have any doubt. You have proved it to me from scientific point of view. Thank you. May Allah SWT bless you, brother. I hope we can meet each other someday.
Karin de Boer, Student Philosophy and History,Universtity Brussel, Belguim
Mr. Harun Yahya's essays and books are usually clever, occasionally even brilliant, and invariably presented with verve and style. I am really impressed by this man.His ambitious work stands out for its historic sweep, its focus on the political aspects, deep thinking and the cohesion that comes with single authorship.................. Harun Yahya.
Jack Grijzers, Student Theology, University Brussel, Belguim
Mr Andar Octar's books have an attractiveness of argumentation, grounded on the necessary solid research, that makes it a stimulating contribution to Islamic / historical studies.I think there is ground to say that harun Yahya produced an shift in modern theology thinking.
