Sızıntı (lit. Fountain) was a monthly Islamic magazine published between 1979[1] and July 2016 in Turkey. Its English-language version is known as The Fountain. The magazine was started by and is operated by members of the Gülen movement, made up of the followers of the Turkish preacher and Islamic opinion leader Fethullah Gülen, and claims to bring together Islam and science by stressing the alleged "parallels" between modern scientific discoveries and literal verses from the Quran.[2]

Sızıntı was closed down by the Turkish authorities on 27 July 2016.[3]
