Presentation Text of the book “A Journey of Discovery for an Extraordinary Treasure: Risale-i Nur (The Treatise of Light) Training Program”
This book is penned down in order to introduce you a piece of work, that is so unbelievably and astonishingly perfect that it will surprise you with the high truths and grand scientific discoveries contained therein and will make some of you say “How come I have never heard of it until now!” (Or could not really discover it).
To give correct answers to three basic questions of existence, which have remained as the unknown secrets of the universe that have been always wondered by the humanity.
The discovery of the right answers in these areas has been possible not only with the use of the mind/intellect which is incapable of reaching to the truth on its own but rather with the common guidance of divine revelation and the mind. Nevertheless, the answers to the questions that were asked have been discovered solely with rational inferences and logical evidences. These three questions are:
“Where did this universe and those within it come from? Where will they go?
And Why are they here, what is their mission? That is to ask “What are we doing here?”
High truths, which the whole humanity needs and which are appealing to all those who look for the explanation of the basic reality of existence and which is more interesting for the world of science and the scientists and which is brought by divine revelation, are discovered once again and proved with rational methods in these works. Especially today, while quantum physics, astronomy and astrophysics have reached to such advanced levels, common answers are looked for these three questions on matter, universe and human being; the science and these works study the same subjects and share a common ground of work. Here you are: The work, which contains in itself a spiritual/immaterial treasury for people who have an irresistible interest and passion for science and learning, is called RISALE-I NUR (TREATISE OF LIGHT).
The content of the book is composed of 19 basic epistles selected from the Collection of Risale-i Nur. Some selected parts related to the subject from 23rd Word Epistle of Nature, Epistle of Resurrection, first eight Words and some other epistles are included in our book. The main texts from Risale-i Nur are placed in the beginning, the words and concepts are explained in the footnotes and the explanatory texts are provided afterwards. In addition, occasionally, as the need arises, explanatory texts are included within the text of the book in the form of an intermediary note.
The first part of our book, which consists of two main sections is entitled as “Discovering the Value of the Treasure of Faith.”
In this section, the following is presented: the meaning and the importance of the faith and worship, which are proposed by the Religion to the man; how the hidden secret of the universe is solved by the religion; the beauty of faith and how the true value of man comes to light with faith, and the levels of Qur’an and philosophy in terms of understanding the Secret of the Universe. Finally, we are trying to look closely at the great good news and the remedy for death brought by the religion through prophets and we are looking for the answer to this question: “What are the characteristics of true faith that will enable us to earn the eternal life?” We can regard this first part as the understanding of how great and precious a treasure is.
The second part of the book is entitled as ” Proving the Existence of the Treasure of Faith with Evidences”. In this section, six pillars of faith are proved with detailed evidences. In other words, in the second section, the existence of the treasure sought to be achieved, whose value is understood/appreciated in the first section, is proved; its place is discovered, and this great and magnificent treasure is acquired. Primarily understanding that faith is such a great blessing and a treasure with a great value would determine the importance that we would give to that treasure and its evidences. Nevertheless, you will also observe that in the first part, a serious effort has also been made to search for the truth and evidences. Once you complete the book, you will have completed an important reading that could be considered as a brief summary of the Risale-i Nur collection and taken a serious step in studying the high knowledge of faith that is taught by these works.
In “The Journeys of Discovery Risale-i Nur Training Program”, you are invited for an adventure of looking for and finding out the truth.

From the comments written at the website kitapyurdu.com:
“I’m calling out to everyone who reads this comment: I swear that I don’t know who the author is, I bought the book with a curiosity, it really is a legendary book. It’s unbelievable to see that only 27 copies have been sold here. I hope it won’t continue like this, because it’s a pity. I CLAIM AND BELIEVE THAT: IN THE NEAREST FUTURE, it is going to be viral like KURK MANTOLU MADONNA and TUTUNAMAYANLAR . Despite the fact that they could make only several prints in the beginning, they became incredibly popular after years. And this book will have the same destiny, I hope the time will justify me… Many thanks to the author; to your hands, to your labor, to your heart, and to your will… “
“An exquisite book and it upsets me that it is not a popular one. The most perfect book I’ve ever read. Everybody should buy it immediately. You may be very sorry for not buying it. “
From Internet Comments:
“It is like clear water. If you wish, you can either drink it or swim in it (That is to say, while it is so clear to understand, it also has a high depth of meaning.)
“I am fond of this style of explanation of Resale-i Nur… I have read it with great joy, It is an intelligently-written, shining study.
In your seminars, you have such a fluent and catchy way of addressing your audience and presenting your material that even a little kid could grasp it easily. The visual presentations used in your seminars, the examples you give from daily life and your narratives from Risale-i Nur which are, by stretching our imagination, eye opening for us, are all really wonderful. God bless your heart and your hands.
“The style of the book is clear and understandable, however the meanings are dealt in depth… I believe that it is a study that will close the gap existing in this field. I am congratulating them. May Allah be pleased with their work!”
“There are some people who have a good command of knowledge. In other words, they know. Again, there are some people who also have a good command of knowledge; however, they are privileged since they add new information to their knowledge. Ediz, brother, you belong to this second class.”
“I recommend it. I just loved it. I have read it twice. Besides, I summarized and submitted it to my teacher. Read it. I think it’s a great book.”
“Wonderful! May the Lord be pleased, such a work was necessary like water, like air. I hope more works like this which will appeal to people and will help the truth to come out rather than conceal it will continue to be written. Thanks! Thanks!”
“You won’t find better in the field. Its mental and logical constructs are very strong… It is a long-lasting guide that caresses the soul and with the literary style of poetry it can be read without getting exhausted again and again. I have personally never seen an equivalent of this work, which perfectly explains and proves the truth of the faith in Risale-i Nur and makes it more comprehensible by using a fluent language like water.”

Bediüzzaman Said Nursi, at the beginning of last century, presented “Medresetüzzehra Education Approach”, as the special name of a project of innovational educational program, teaching of rational and religious sciences together, their reconciliation and integration. Our program aims to provide serious analysis and studies, as a philosophical basis, in terms of introduction to the Scientific World of such an educational approach which accepts the existence of a Creator, by developing scientific models, and interpretations which can prove to be alternatives to scientific approaches to the existence of the Creator, by developing alternative scientific approaches that can be accepted and by establishing the philosophy of science and curriculum of “Medresetüzzehra Education Approach”.

In addition, the questions related to the fact that “Qadar” does not give anybody any discomfort or strain, on the contrary it provides a perfect ease of mind and convenience and to the reconciliation of the ugliness of the troubles/evils that we see in the world with the fact that “everything coming from Qadar is good” are answered with such a proficiency that has not been witnessed in the history of Islam.
