One the most important
factors for the continued existence of any country
is its defence capability. As a nation, it must
be in a constant state of preparedness to face
all kinds of threats and dangers from external
and internal sources. No matter how well developed
and advanced a country may be, if it fails to
defend itself, it could be brought to ruin with
the launching of even a minor military offensive
against it, or even a well-directed and unanticipated
terrorist act. In the face of such threats, neither
its natural resources, its technological prowess,
not its economy will be of any avail. If the country
in question is unable to defend itself, it may
even cease to exist.
This is one of the reasons
why significant amounts of the national income
is regularly allocated to defence; nowadays,
armed forces have to be provided with the most
advanced weaponry, tools and equipment fitted
with the latest technological features,
and meticulous training has to be given to soldiers
in an all-out attempt to keep defence systems
No less than countries,
people too have to be concerned about their
defence, if they want to lead a healthy
and peaceful life. They inevitably have to protect
themselves and their possession against criminal
acts, such as theft and murder, as well
as against natural disasters, such as accidents,
fire, earthquakes and floods.
But this is not the end of the matter. Human beings
have other enemies, which go unseen by them
and, as such, are often ignored. Actually,
these enemies are much more resilient than the
others. Serious measures must, therefore, be taken
to guard against them.
Who, or what then
these enemies that keep human beings under constant
They are bacteria, viruses,
and similar microscopic organisms, which may exist
in the water we drink, the food we eat, the house
we live in, and the office where we work. In essence,
they are everywhere.
Most interestingly, in
spite of being surrounded by such a serious threat,
we make no effort whatsoever to protect ourselves
against it. This is because there is a mechanism
within our bodies, which undertakes this task
on our behalf, providing the necessary protection
for us, without causing us the slightest disturbance.
This is "The Defence System".
It is one of the most important and amazing systems
operating within our bodies, for it undertakes
one of the most vital missions of life. We may
not be aware of it, but all the elements of the
immune system protect our bodies just like the
soldiers of a huge army. The defence cells that
protect the human body against invaders, such
as bacteria, viruses, and similar micro-organisms,
are equipped with extraordinary abilities. The
patterns of intelligence, effort, and sacrifice,
which these cells display during the war they
wage in the body, astonish everyone who learns
People in general would
like to know what makes them ill, how illnesses
take complete control of their bodies, what causes
fever, fatigue, pain in their bones and joints,
and which processes take place in their bodies
throughout their illnesses.
The main purpose of this
book is to explore how this system, which protects
the human body just like a disciplined, organized
army, has come into being and how it works.
These two points will lead
us to very important conclusions. First, we shall
together witness the uniqueness and the perfection
in Allah’s creation. Second, we shall observe
what contradictions the theory of evolution, a
superstitious belief having no verification whatsoever,
includes within its own reasoning, and on what
an unsound basis it was erected.
Before proceeding to the
main topic, it will be useful to state another
important point: In books on the immune system,
you will often see statements such as:
"We do not yet
know how this formed…"
These statements are actually
important confessions. These are expressions of
the helplessness people experience at the outset
of the 21st century — even with all the latest technology
and accumulated knowledge at their disposal — in
the face of the miraculous work these tiny cells
accomplish. The tasks achieved by these microorganisms
include such intricate operations that the human
mind can barely grasp the details of this well established
system. There is obviously a secret wisdom hidden
in the immune system which eludes man’s understanding.
"The reason still remains
"Research on the topic
is under way …"
"According to a theory…"
As you read this book,
you will witness the superiority of this wisdom,
hidden both in your cells and in other details
pertaining to your body. The ultimate conclusion
is that this could only be the wisdom of a supreme
Science may one day succeed
in solving all the secrets of the immune system
and even produce a similar artificial system by
imitating the actions of these cells. No doubt,
this task will require highly educated professionals
using the most sophisticated technology and instruments
available, working in highly advanced laboratories.
The most important point here is that the accomplishment
of such a task would once again invalidate the
theory of evolution, proving that such a system
cannot originate by coincidence.
The likelihood of the spontaneous
development of a mechanism such as the defence
system currently seems too remote. As scientists
unravel the secrets of this system, they are enthralled
by the design they encounter. The points that
are revealed lead to many other questions, which
make the wisdom and consciousness in the cell
all the more apparent. Therefore, it has become
very clear that the defence system, like all the
other systems in the body, could not have developed
gradually, just by chance, as suggested by the
theory of evolution.
The main purpose of this
book is to introduce you to these "brave warriors"
within you, while also proving to you that this
mind-boggling system is a special sign of creation.
In relation to this, we will see how the scenarios
formulated by the theory of evolution are demolished
and rendered meaningless when faced with the facts.
The topic which will be particularly highlighted
here, is not the biological details of the defence
system, which are easily accessible in any book
of biology or medicine, but the miraculous aspect
of the system. We have especially avoided the
unnecessary use of biological and physiological
terms in order to make the contents of the book
easily understandable to readers of all ages and
Lastly, we want to remind
you that even now, you are totally indebted to
your defence system if you are able to read this
book peacefully, without being infected by the
microbes all around you. Had the immune system
not existed in your body, you would never have
been able to read this book, having left this
world even before you learned reading and writing.
