The Dark Clan - Harun Yahya
The Dark Clan
'Ad were arrogant in the land, without any right, saying, "Who has greater strength than us?"
Did they not see that Allah, Who created them, had greater strength than them?
But they renounced Our Signs.
(Qur'an, 41: 15)


Comments such as, "big fish eat small fish" suggest that injustices between people are quite natural and common. Suggestions like, "don't even trust your dad" or "don't ever be soft on anyone" push people into a pitiless individualism. There are many everyday expressions circulating which openly or surreptitiously suggest that qualities like patience, devotion, and modesty are signs of naivety.

The social system envisaged by the clan disregards all spiritual values and considers every kind of immorality acceptable.
Careful investigation of one's environment will reveal that these kinds of suggestions are incessantly and systematically circulated in many countries of the world via the press, TV stations, advertising, films, books, comics, and other cultural channels. The same messages are constantly being pushed and reiterated. The architects of this propaganda disregard the truths and values which religious morality brings to human society, and promote an anti-religious and immoral world-view instead. Behind this universal propaganda lies the dark clan, the subject matter of this book. The theorists of the clan are working away on the elaboration of a world independent of religion. Primarily they are trying to destroy belief in God and deter people from values taught by religious wisdom. They also seek to encourage sins and perversions such as adultery and homosexuality, and strive to create a social environment where these are seen as natural, legitimate and tolerable. This social setting is the environment they need to live the murky and degenerate life they seek to establish.

A large proportion of society, even though unaware of the full extent of the clan's immorality, is greatly disturbed by the prevailing situation and knows neither how to thwart nor how to destroy the perversions introduced by the clan. Therefore, the majority of people turn away instead of fighting it and its dark philosophy, remaining content to steer clear if possible, of the wave which threatens to engulf them. The clan has cunning policies, employs frightening methods and is pitiless. But as God says in the Qur'an:

…The misguided cannot harm you as long as you are guided… (Qur'an, 5: 105)

In other words, those who follow the righteous path are under God's protection and their efforts for the good will be rewarded with success by Him.

As will be seen in greater detail over the following pages the dark clan exerts a greater influence than is generally suspected over people, an influence that can only be eliminated by exposing the clan's activities and destroying its organisational foundations and its ideologies on an intellectual level. For this reason, what needs to be done firstly is to examine the clan a little more closely and to reveal its mentality, its practices and its plans.



When listing the characteristics of the clan, moral degeneration and an unsavoury way of life were mentioned as the main unifying qualities. Looking at the world it can clearly be observed that this degenerate structure is held together by an international ring. There is a reason why certain newspapers and TV channels constantly seek to portray immorality as modernity and progress. A popular culture is being created which rewards immorality with fame and publicity. Hence, people renowned only for the outrageousness of their behaviour constantly feature in the news. This is because immorality constitutes one of the most important sources of income for the clan.

The increase in gambling and corruption is another important indicator of social degeneration

The key slogans of today's immorality propaganda are modernity, progress, daring, and freedom. No doubt, to have a modern world-view, to be abreast of current affairs and to be open-minded are good qualities, but the objective of the clan behind these fancy slogans is to present all kinds of immorality and perversion to people as if harmless and commonplace. This is why young people, who are largely unaware of the deliberate nature of their exposure to the persistent suggestions of the clan, think of immorality as a prerequisite to progress. Many people today perceive as normal attitudes and behaviour which as recently as ten years ago they would definitely not have tolerated. Not only that, any criticism of this conduct is now believed to be unacceptable. The increase in these attitudes is an indicator of the effectiveness of the clan's propaganda on ignorant people. In most countries, the content of certain TV and popular magazines display how widespread immorality is in the form of adultery, prostitution, homosexuality, gambling, corruption, and wastefulness, thereby creating in the minds of impressionable people the desire for similar lifestyles.

In most countries of the world, a well-proven technique is to use well-known people in order to promote decadence and disseminate immorality in society. Personalities of limited intellect with psychological problems, living in decadence and lacking the faculty of comprehension, are portrayed by exemplifying their immoralities as progressive, exciting and daring. The underlying message for the viewer being that this is what it takes if you too want to be progressive and "cool". On foreign music channels radical band members wearing outrageous costumes and make-up are given incessant airtime. Deranged people from the margins of society, holding satanist and similar beliefs are frequently invited onto talk shows and projected as rather quaint or interesting rather than being subjected to any form of serious critical scrutiny. All these serve the same purpose.

The global drugs problem in the late nineties
1) Opiates
2) Cannabis
3) Cocaine
4) Amphetamines
5) Others

Prostitutes, thieves and drug users are the most valuable "assets" of this propaganda machine and are therefore resolutely shielded and watched over. People thought to have gone too far are subjected to mock criticism, but the signal this transmits to the sub-consciousness of society is to the contrary. These people are used by the clan to entice new "sources of profit" and in return they can continue to be outrageously decadent in the belief that the clan will take care of them under all circumstances, and that no harm will come their way provided they abide by the clan's rules.

The negative effect of this alliance across the world becomes apparent when statistics are studied. The illegal drugs trade, one of the main money-spinners for the dark clan, is the cause for the daily increasing numbers of people falling into the trap of addiction. Research reveals that the use, especially among youth, of illegal substances has been increasing steadily over the past ten years and that the starting age has dropped to secondary school levels. An inquiry into drug abuse conducted in 1992 revealed that in England 50% of youth were using drugs of which 30 % were addicts. Today, these numbers are significantly higher.

Americans spent 57.3 billion dollars on drugs between 1988 and 1995. UN research in the late nineties set the number of drug users, aged 15 or more, at 200 million, suggesting that 5% of the world's population consumes drugs. The same research suggested that in the nineties 134 countries were faced by drug problems. In Pakistan, in the early eighties, drug use was negligible but by the nineties the number of drug users had jumped to 1.5 million.4

Cocaine Trafficking in the Nineties

Prostitution, another source of income for the clan, is also on the rise as a form of immorality. Today, in many countries across the world, children, girls as well as boys, are forced by their own families into prostitution for money. Instead of the world uniting to save these children from being used as sex objects at an age when they need to be taken care of and protected, the countries where child prostitution is widespread become sought-after destinations for tourists. In 1995, 60% of the Thai government's budget was financed by prostitution and the number of prostitutes in India was 8 million.5 Every year huge numbers of sex tourists from around the world flood these parts of the world for this reason. It is estimated that there are 100,000 child prostitutes in the US and the penitentiaries are home to 300,000-600,000 children convicted of prostitution.6 It is further estimated that 2 million youth sleep rough on the streets in the US and that the majority resort to prostitution.7 Accordingly, fornication is on the rise too, adultery is commonplace and children born outside wedlock constitute a serious social problem.

God desires to turn towards you, but those who pursue their lower appetites desire to make you deviate completely.
(Qur'an, 4 : 27)
You come with lust to men instead of women. You are indeed a depraved people.
(Qur'an, 7: 81)

Furthermore, other important indicators of social degeneration like bribery, corruption, loan-sharking, fraud, wastefulness and the collapse of the justice system are backed by the clan. In some countries, this rot can reach a stage where the whole system, including the country's leadership, comes under the total control of the clan. Dominance over the legislature as well as law-enforcement agencies is common for the clan. Some Latin American countries are a shocking example of this where degeneration and social collapse have reached a stage where the state itself is engaged in drug-trafficking. Unresolved assassinations take place almost daily and drug cartels and other organised crime syndicates have reached a point where they are able to use and manipulate state security forces as they please. Whilst the clan profits from this state of affairs, society suffers economically as well as psychologically.

This system is in total contrast to the morality of the Qur'an, and its damaging effects can only be eradicated by society adopting the standards offered to people by the ethics of religion. God in the Qur'an states clearly that the immoral acts so encouraged by the clan are forbidden:

And do not go near to fornication. It is an indecent act, an evil way. Do not kill any person God has made inviolate, except with the right to do so... (Qur'an, 17:32-33)

Do not go near the property of orphans before they reach maturity, except in a good way. Fulfil your contracts. Contracts will be asked about. Give full measure when you measure and weigh with a level balance. That is better and gives the best result. Do not pursue what you have no knowledge of. Hearing, sight and hearts will all be questioned. Do not strut arrogantly about the earth. You will certainly never split the earth apart nor will you ever rival the mountains in height. All of that is evil action and hateful in the sight of your Lord. (Qur'an, 17: 34-38)

As seen, the way of life, essential for the existence of this clan-like group is defended by them and is in total opposition to the morals of religion.

Religious morality demands loyalty, honesty, fairness, devotion, to be just and to uphold and defend the truth no matter what. The dark clan on the other hand, requires people to be egotistic, ruthless, greedy, cheating and deceitful because this is how its system perpetuates itself. Each member of the clan has found his place in this rotten structure and can only survive in this way. Some profit and live by the proceeds of bribery and corruption, others by exploiting the labour and resources of the innocent, and others by the income generated by the prostitution and drugs trade. The continuity of their system requires the presence of people in their environment who can be bribed or who can bribe others, people who can be coerced into prostitution, drug use and drug dealing, but most importantly, that no one dares to fight these injustices and sickening practices on an intellectual level. Religious morality destroys this corruption and leads to the rise of a people who will put up a strong ideological fight against evil, which in turn would mean the collapse of the dark clan.



… 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.
(Qur'an, 7: 85)

On occasion, people who have witnessed the activities of the clan from within have articulated what has been so far outlined about the system of the dark clan. One of these "confessions" is the book Genc Bir Isadamina (To A Young Businessman) which raised a few eyebrows when it was first published. The author had been in business for many years but eventually became disillusioned by the clan's immorality and withdrew to lead a simpler life. He writes about the things which needed to be done to become a successful businessman in the clan. Obviously, it would be wrong to judge every businessman by the information contained in this book, there are many businessmen who have become very successful in their own spheres, without compromising on honesty and ethics. By the same token, however, there exists an interest group that would prefer the immoral practices mentioned in that book to become common practice.

The business environment described in To A Young Businessman is a smaller scale model of the system envisaged by the dark clan. According to the book, the first thing a businessman must do is to sell his soul and silence his conscience:

Sell your soul. Do it straight away and be rid of it. Where and how? Don't worry, the marketplace will find you and the rest is easy enough.8

Conscience; you will cross oceans but get stuck in your conscience and become food for psychiatrists; you'll seek refuge in Indian philosophies and travel to distant lands. You will do charity like building schools and hospitals…. No. No. No. But don't be afraid and persist. In time, you will learn to cheat your conscience… That's how the mantra of the businessman goes who is trying in reality to convince his own conscience.

Conscience. The conscience, which sees what others don't, a pair of eyes in your heart. Don't think on the day you sold your soul you are also rid of your conscience. You must slowly and bit by bit strangle your conscience as you would strangle a puppy...9

On the Day that each self finds the good it did, and the evil it did, present there in front of it, it will wish there were an age between it and then. God advises you to beware of Him. God is Ever-Gentle with His servants. (Qur'an, 3: 30)

But why would a businessman of the dark clan have to sell his soul and murder his conscience? Because the dark clan's world of business only requires deceit, fraud, ruthlessness and selfishness. Here are some of the character traits described in the same book:

You must be a liar and twofaced. In order to make others believe the contrary you must first convince yourself. A businessman playing to the top must sell his soul irrevocably.10

Envy is a first class emotion like aggression, lust or pride…. Make it one of your most trusted. Feed it, nurture it. Don't become estranged to aggression, ambition and envy because it's these emotions that drive your career. Distance yourself from gentle feelings like compassion, love, and longing.11

According to this same book, entry into this dark world is firstly conditional on "denying the existence and unity of God."12 According to the author, those wishing to enter this dark world must desert their souls, conscience, and belief in God.

For the clan, ruthlessness and hypocrisy is the way to success in business. God on the other hand orders people in the Qur'an to be honest, compassionate and just.

This is because people, who believe in God, consider themselves to be answerable to Him and thus refrain from transgression, tyranny and other immoral deeds, but the survival of the clan's dark world, as it was with the corrupt nations of the past, depends on the denial of God and His religion.

For this reason, the gradual weakening and eventual destruction of the belief in God is top priority for the dark clan around the world. Most clan members opt for ignorance, to live thoughtlessly and to ignore the countless signs of God's existence. However, the higher level theorists of the dark clan are well aware of the desperate necessity to have theories and philosophies for the purpose of concealing the signs of God's existence. This perceived necessity forms the basis for the relationship between the dark clan and Darwinism.

When those who have done their duty are asked, 'What has your Lord sent down?' their reply is, 'Good!' There is good in this world for those who do good, and the abode of the hereafter is even better. (Qur'an, 16: 30)
Sovereignty on that Day will be God's. He will judge between them. Those who believe and do right actions will be in Gardens of Delight.
(Qur'an, 22: 56)
