Born in Ankara in 1956, Adnan Oktar writes his books under the pen name of Harun Yahya. He is a world-renowned man of ideas. Ever since his university years, he has dedicated his life to telling of the existence and oneness of Almighty Allah, to disseminating the moral values of the Qur`an, to the intellectual defeat of materialist and atheist ideologies, to propagating the real Ataturk way and to defending the permanence of the state and the unity of the nation. He has never wavered in the face of difficulties and despite oppression from materialist, Darwinist and separatist circles, still continues this intellectual struggle today exhibiting great patience and determination.

A short biography of Adnan Oktar:

The forebears of Adnan Oktar, a sayyid, migrated to the Caucasus during Hulagu`s invasion, and subsequently sought refuge in the Ottoman Empire during the Ottoman-Russian and Russian-Caucasian wars, settling in Bala, Ankara. 

The origins of Beslen Arslan Kasayev, grandfather of Omer Bey, Mr. Oktar`s grandfather, go back to the Nogay dynasty. This family is also known as the Arslanogullari (the sons of Arslan) and is one of the twenty-one sayyid families whose names appear in a document prepared for the Caucasus governorship in 1827.
