Its true. What everyone has been saying for a few years now and what I had been refusing to believe, finding every excuse that I could for him and defending him because of his good contributions to Islamic thought in its relationship with the 'modern' world.
I have been one of the biggest fans of his works, but now even I cannot deny any longer that Harun Yahya, Adnan Oktar, has either become bad or gone mad.
Over the years he and his many followers have produced a great corpus of works in support of Islam, and whatever his personal beliefs these books and dvd's are good and very well made, but I am starting to suspect that he himself has merely crested upon a wave of the work of those unnamed well intentioned Muslims who were drawn to his charisma, thinking that they were working for Islam.
And indeed they were working for Islam but they were also working in the interests of a man who now sits surrounded by very beautiful, but unnatural looking, girls. Who sit around him looking like the bored something or others, covered in makeup with cheap looking wigs, collagen lips and breast implants.
He is shaming the Muslim Ummah that has put him in a position of influence by buying his books. Not even maintaining a pretense of modesty but making comments to these girls on their their beauty whilst smiling and keeping their eye contact.
Previously I have considered such criticism to be gheeba, but now even I can see that he must be warned against, especially as these poor misled young women that sit around him likely include some gullible Muslim girls who volunteered to join his movement thinking that they were serving Allah and have ended up in such as sorry state.
None of this changes the beneficial nature or good sense of many of the Harun Yahya books, but it certainly shows that the Muslim Ummah needs to produce similar works from trustworthy and untainted sources as replacements for the function that the Harun Yahya works have been useful for over the past decade and more.
Harun Yahya is talking the talk of Islam but he must start walking the walk of Islam and stop making himself look like a dirty old man.
