Dr. H. Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, the President of Indonesia, gave an opening address at a Ramadan fast-breaking congregation attended by government officials in 2008. In his opening speech, addressed to ministers, the Cabinet, ambassadors from Muslim countries, civil servants and journalists, President mentioned the works of Harun Yahya and gave the following advice:
I have read two books this week; the first was written by Harun Yahya, the well-known Turkish Muslim intellectual. His tens of books have been translated into more than 15 languages and have been used as reference text all over the world in both Islamic and non-Islamic societies. The title of the book is ‘Seeing Good in All.’ He describes how a Muslim with high moral quality sees good in all things and all events. We often hear ‘there is a blessing behind every calamity,’ and there is a solution to every problem, there is ease with every difficulty.
Harun Yahya described this in great detail and in this holy month of Ramadan it is useful to read this book as a means of reflection as we seek to perfect our faith and personality.
