In the Golden Age, the arts and technology will flourish
and develop to heretofore unimagined extents. In addition, social life
will be markedly peaceful. Allah will present a previously unknown level
of beauty to the life of people of faith who turn to His religion, for,
as stated in the Qur'an, He promises good to His servants who comply with
the Qur'an's morality:
Allah calls to the Abode of Peace and guides whom
He wills to a straight path. Those who do good will have the best and
more! Neither dust nor debasement will darken their faces. They are the
Companions of Paradise, remaining in it timelessly, forever. (Surah Yunus:
In the Golden Age, "the Abode of Peace" promised
to those who "do good" will be present in its true sense. The
most important element that ensures such a life will be strict adherence
to the Qur'an's morality.
How will this peace and tranquility be secured?
As we know, respect, obedience, and confidence engender
social peace and tranquility. In the Qur'an, obedience is featured and encouraged
as an ideal moral attribute. In many verses, Allah commands Muslims to be
Consequently, the social life of a community that embodies
the Qur'an's morality is simultaneously an environment in which people
show the greatest respect and obedience to the state.
In addition, Allah forbids people from committing corruption.
There are many verses related to this command:
Eat and drink of Allah's provision, and do not
go about the land corrupting it. (Surat al-Baqara: 60)
Whenever he holds the upperhand, he goes about
the land corrupting it, destroying [people's] crops and animals. Allah
does not love corruption. (Surat al-Baqara: 205)
Do not corrupt the land after it has been put
right. Call on Him fearfully and eagerly. Allah's mercy is close to the
good-doers. (Surat al-A'raf: 56)
Give full measure and full weight. Do not diminish
people's goods. Do not cause corruption in the land after it has been
put right. That is better for you if you are believers. Do not lie in
wait on every pathway, threatening people, barring those who believe from
[entering] the Way of Allah, desiring to make it crooked. Remember when
you were few and He increased your number: see the final fate of the corrupters!
(Surat al-A'raf: 85-86)
But as for those who break Allah's contract after
it has been agreed, sever what Allah has commanded to be joined, and cause
corruption in the land, the curse will be upon them. They will have the
Evil Abode. (Surat ar-Ra'd: 25)
Seek the abode of the Hereafter with what Allah
has given you, without forgetting your portion of the world. And do good,
as Allah has been good to you. And do not seek to cause corruption in
the land. Allah does not love corrupters. (Surat al-Qasas: 77)
In compliance with these verses, sincere Muslims strictly
avoid causing any corruption and instigating chaos and conflict. In a
peaceful, stable, and tolerant manner, they always seek peaceful solutions
Life in the Golden Age also will be characterized by peace.
People will display the trust and respect they feel for the state by obeying
its agencies. People will no longer pose difficulties or fight against
police or other security forces. On the contrary, with their tolerant
and kind attitude, those who live by the Qur'an's morality will always
side with the security forces and thereby help them to accomplish their
tasks. The presence of such people will eradicate anarchy, terror, chaos,
enmity, and violence. As a result, humanity will attain a Paradise-like
environment, the like of which has never been seen before. Conflict, fighting,
and disagreement will be things of the past. On the streets, people will
feel secure and will be able to go anywhere-even at night.
Our Prophet (saas) stressed in his sayings that there will
be no bloodshed in that period and that peace will prevail:
In this time, one is not awoken from sleep and not a drop
of blood is shed. 1
In this time, neither a man will be awoken from sleep,
nor will a person's nose bleed. 2
Moreover, the self-possessed and obedient attitude of these
morally excellent people will make it easy to administer the country.
The absence of such vices as greed for material values and mundane troubles
(e.g., striving to make a living) will put an end to theft and fraud.
Violent outbreaks will not happen, and the pursuit for truth and research
will occupy people's minds. In the absence of anarchy, terror, corruption,
crime, murder, fraud, and so many other evil deeds, countries will prosper.
This contemporary, civilized, and rational Islamic model,
which will prevail during the Golden Age, will guide the Islamic world.
The walls of bigotry surrounding Islam for centuries will collapse, and
the original religion will resurface in all of its purity. Societies abiding
by the Qur'an's morality will solve their internal social problems and
become role models for other societies.

CREATION FOR THE 10th DAY
SHELTER UNDER THE SEA:
Corals are creatures which live in the deep regions of tropical
waters. Reefs, where many creatures live together, are formed from the
limestone skeletons of dead corals cemented together by the action of
coralline algae. Reefs can extend over very broad areas. Scientists compare
reefs to tropical rainforests because, like rainforests, they are centers
of diversity. The coral reefs are home to more than 2,000 species of fish,
5,000 species of mollusks, 700 species of corals and countless other forms
of crabs, sea urchins, brittle stars, sea cucumbers and worms of different
Polyps are small marine animals which live in coral reefs.
Many coral polyps have symbiotic algae that live inside them. Algae contain
chlorophyll and therefore, they can photosynthesize. Algae are rich in
oxygen but poor in nutrients. Like all other plants, algae, too, need
nitrates and phosphates. That is why it is so important for these creatures
to live together. Unable to live on their own, they survive by making
use of one another.The polyp provides food to the algae with its waste
The algae store the waste products as ammonia and then break
them down into nitrogen phosphorus, which is then used for energy. The
polyp also provides shelter for the algae by protecting it against predators.
In return, the algae provide food to the polyps through photosynthesis.
Thus, polyps obtain the energy they need to construct their limestone
As in all other creatures that lead a symbiotic life, all
the needs of both creatures, in the symbiotic life between polyp and algae,
are met in the easiest way. It is apparent that Who has joined these two
creatures together is a sole Creator Who is aware of the needs of them
both. These creatures have been created by
Allah in a way in which they complement each other and meet
each other's needs.
Allah introduces us to His endless artistry and boundless
knowledge through the various creatures He has created under the sea and
the matchless designs and amazing characteristics of them all. Allah reminds
us of this in the Qur'an:
And also the things of varying colors He has created
for you in the earth. There is certainly a Sign in that for people who
pay heed. It is He who made the sea subservient to you so that you can
eat fresh flesh from it and bring out from it ornaments to wear. And you
see the ships cleaving through it so that you can seek His bounty, and
so that hopefully you will show thanks. (Surat an-Nahl: 13-14)

THE THEORY OF EVOLUTION DAY BY DAY
EVOLUTION DECEIT - X
THE SCENARIO OF HUMAN
There are no mechanisms in nature to lead the living beings
to evolve and that living species came into existence not as the result
of an evolutionary process, but rather emerged all of a sudden in their
present perfect structure. That is, they were created individually. Therefore,
it is obvious that "human evolution", too, is a story that has
never taken place.
What, then, do the evolutionists propose as the basis
for this story?
This basis is the existence of plenty of fossils on which
the evolutionists are able to build up imaginary interpretations. Throughout
history, more than 6,000 ape species have lived and most of them have
become extinct. Today, only 120 ape species live on the earth. These approximately
6,000 ape species, most of which are extinct, constitute a rich resource
for the evolutionists.
The evolutionists wrote the scenario of human evolution
by arranging some of the skulls that suited their purpose in an order
from the smallest to the biggest and scattering the skulls of some extinct
human races among them. According to this scenario, men and modern apes
have common ancestors. These creatures evolved in time and some of them
became the apes of today while another group that followed another branch
of evolution became the men of today.
However, all the paleontological, anatomical and biological
findings have demonstrated that this claim of evolution is as fictitious
and invalid as all the others. No sound or real evidence has been put
forward to prove that there is a relationship between man and ape, except
forgeries, distortions, and misleading drawings and comments.
The fossil record indicates to us that throughout history,
men have been men and apes have been apes. Some of the fossils the evolutionists
claim to be the ancestors of man, belong to human races that lived until
very recently-about 10,000 years ago-and then disappeared. Moreover, many
human communities currently living have the same physical appearance and
characteristics as these extinct human races, which the evolutionists
claim to be the ancestors of men. All these are clear proof that man has
never gone through an evolutionary process at any period in history.
The most important of all is that there are numerous anatomical
differences between apes and men and none of them are of the kind to come
into existence through an evolutionary process. "Bipedality"
is one of them. Bipedality is peculiar to man and it is one of the most
important traits that distinguishes man from other animals.
The Darwinist claim holds that modern man evolved from some
kind of ape-like creature. During this alleged evolutionary process, which
is supposed to have started from 4 to 5 million years ago, it is claimed
that there existed some "transitional forms" between modern
man and his ancestors. According to this completely imaginary scenario,
the following four basic "categories" are listed:
1. Australopithecines (any of the various forms
belonging to the genus Australopithecus)
2. Homo habilis
3. Homo erectus
4. Homo sapiens
Evolutionists call the genus to which the alleged ape-like
ancestors of man belonged "Australopithecus", which means "southern
ape". Australopithecus, which is nothing but an old type of ape that
has become extinct, is found in various different forms. Some of them
are larger and strongly built (robust), while others are smaller and delicate
Evolutionists classify the next stage of human evolution
as the genus Homo, that is "man". According to the evolutionist
claim, the living things in the Homo series are more developed than Australopithecus,
and not very much different from modern man. The modern man of our day,
that is, the species Homo sapiens, is said to have formed at the latest
stage of the evolution of this genus Homo.
Fossils like "Java Man", "Pekin Man",
and "Lucy", which appear in the media from time to time and
are to be found in evolutionist publications and textbooks, are included
in one of the four groups listed above. Each of these groupings is also
assumed to branch into species and sub-species, as the case may be.
Some suggested transitional forms of the past, such as Ramapithecus,
had to be excluded from the imaginary human family tree after it was realised
that they were ordinary apes. 1
A SINGLE JAWBONE AS A SPARK OF INSPIRATION
The first Ramapithecus fossil found:

By outlining the links in the chain as "australopithecines
> Homo habilis > Homo erectus > Homo sapiens",
the evolutionists imply that each of these types is the ancestor of the
next. However, recent findings by paleoanthropologists have revealed that
australopithecines, Homo habilis and Homo erectus
existed in different parts of the world at the same time. Moreover, some
of those humans classified as Homo erectus probably lived up until
very modern times. In an article titled "Latest Homo erectus
of Java: Potential Contemporaneity with Homo sapiens in Southeast
Asia", it was reported in the journal Science that Homo erectus
fossils found in Java had "mean ages of 27 ± 2 to 53.3 ±
4 thousand years ago" and this "raise[s] the possibility that
H. erectus overlapped in time with anatomically modern humans (H.
sapiens) in Southeast Asia" 2
Furthermore, Homo sapiens neandarthalensis and Homo
sapiens sapiens (modern man) also clearly co-existed. This situation
apparently indicates the invalidity of the claim that one is the ancestor
of the other.
Intrinsically, all findings and scientific research have
revealed that the fossil record does not suggest an evolutionary process
as evolutionists propose. The fossils, which evolutionists claim to be
the ancestors of humans, in fact belong either to different human races,
or else to species of ape.

Antisemitism is a fanatical hatred felt for the Jewish people.
This racist ideology has caused millions of innocent Jews to be killed,
persecuted, exiled and threatened over the centuries.
Islam aims to bring justice to the world. Just as it
denounces all kinds of racism, so it denounces antisemitism. Muslims criticize
Zionism, but defend the right of Jews to live in peace and security.
