MR. ADNAN OKTAR'S EXPLANATION OF A HADITH REFERRING TO THE LATEST INCIDENTS IN YEMEN 

“On the other hand, in the End Times,  at the time of the Mahdi, forty thousand people whose hearts are filled with faith will run to Yemen, to side with the Muslims." According to the accounts, it is related that forty thousand Muslims will go to Yemen to help in the time of the Mahdi (pbuh). God knows the truth; they might have started the operation in Yemen because of this hadith.

LOVE IS THE PURPOSE OF THE CREATION OF BOTH HEAVEN AND HELL 

God loves love. He created the universe for love. God, Himself loves love. Love is the purpose of the creation of both Heaven and Hell.  Love is indeed the purpose of the creation of Hell. That is to say Hell is created to teach the value of love, to make it possible to make a comparison. That is because love is not something formed out of the blue. God attains that with an art; within knowledge. Love is not formed out of the blue. God has laid love upon a thousand and one different art. Love is formed upon that. And thus the most wonderful power of the universe is formed; the power of love.

EVERYTHING WILL BE WONDERFUL WHEN THERE IS LOVE OF GOD AND FEAR OF GOD

The whole issue is to love God very sincerely and to have a sincere faith. The world is like a piece of dust in this endless universe and we are like far smaller pieces of dusts in that speck of dust. But God has full knowledge of everything, He never sleeps but we do sleep.  We get sick, we die. He never gets sick or dies. He has full knowledge of all the atoms in the endless universe. God's Power is boundlessly great.

It’s very important to have the wisdom, attention and the will power that can appreciate God as He is due. For example there is a world in- let us say Sulphur. It’s spinning from the beginning of the creation of the universe. Energy, after all, never dies. Human beings die, atoms don’t and what’s more, atoms do so with a gorgeous, huge energy. Atoms never get sick and never have cancer, ulcers or a stomach-ache. Atoms trust God and spin like dervishes. For how long? For 15 billion years. Do whatever you want, have mountains and rocks all mixed up, have everything burned down, it will still be spinning around. Masha'Allah, see the power God gave them.

The very most important thing is to adore God; giving full attention to God, understanding the Almighty of God, the Greatness of God and to love God. Not like a human does but God resents anything less than that -I say like this just so you understand- it offends God. In the Qur'an, God says “They do not measure God with His true measure." That is God being offended. “I give blessings to you, I give such beauty to you and you are to try and measure My Greatness” He says. But they do not; because of this, God says, “Man is cruel and ignorant” and He says that man is ungrateful. We have to seek refuge in God from being ungrateful. We have to seek refuge in God from being cruel and ignorant.

Accounts related with our Prophet (saas) 

Even if it was the end of the night, the Messenger of God (saas) used to put on a beautiful perfume and went out like that. He always used a beautiful perfume.  

"He had a kohl container. He used to tinge both his eyes with kohl.” “He used to wash his head with sidr and put on a light smelling musk." Not a heavy smell, his hair used to smell musky. Our Prophet (saas) used to smell of fragrant musk after his bath. 

"He used to sleep in the early night and remained awake in the late night."  He used to sleep a little early at night but afterwards, our Prophet (saas) used to wake up about 3 or 4 o'clock, about 5 o'clock.

"Rasulallah (saas) loved fresh melons."  Melons are amazingly refreshing in that hot climate, and they smelled good. 

"I have not seen anyone who consults others more than our Prophet (saas). " Look, even though he is a Prophet, he consults others, asks them their opinion. When something comes up, he discusses it with everyone and talks about it with them. 

“He never declined when something was asked of him." He is a very well mannered, loving person. Out of his kindness, Rasulullah (saas) indulged when someone asked something of him. 

He used to praise God when he saw something he loved. For instance, when there is some food, when there is a beautiful person he praised God saying, "Alhamdulillah." 

"His words were clear and distinct. Everyone listening would understand. When he looked at the mirror he said "My God, as you have beautified my creation, beautify my morality as well." He praised God every time he looked at the mirror. 

“When Rasulullah (saas) visited a patient he used to put his hand on the part that aches and say, "Bismillah, it is all okay."  They distress and overwhelm themselves thinking there is something wrong. When our Prophet (saas) said, "It is all okay," they actually feel relief in their hearts. The heaviness they felt on them would dissappear, this is actually a distinct, clear miracle of our Prophet (saas). That is true. 

“Cold and sweet drinks were the ones he loved the most." Because the weather is hot, he loved drinking cold refreshing drinks. 

“The community of the Mahdi (pbuh) will come in the End Times. They are like the autumn clouds. There will be one, two, three people from every tribe and eventually they will be nine people." There is a connection with nine.  “By God, I know their commands, their names and the places they will go," he said. Then he stood up and commanded: Baqir, Baqir, Baqir. And then said; "He is one from my descent. He will split open the hadiths."  That means he will explain the hadiths, expound them, separate the false ones and explain the authentic hadiths to people. 

"The Messenger of God was very handsome and attractive. His blessed face was radiant as the full moon." His skin was brightly luminous. When you looked at him from a distance his face was radiant and sparkling pinkish white. His head was large. Our Prophet (saas) had a large head. The heads of Prophets were generally big, the Prophet Abraham (pbuh) had a large head as well. He had slightly wavy hair. I mean his hair was not curly but wavy.  When grown, his hair passed his earlobes. 

"His skin was white and he had wide forehead. He had lush brows." He had a beautiful nose, a slightly tilted tip, with a slightly falcon nose.

"There is a shinning radiance, a slight bump in his forehead near his brows. He had a thick beard, big eyes, smooth cheeks and wide mouth."  The Messenger of God (saas) had a big mouth. His teeth were perfectly radiant and white. His immaculately clean and beautiful teeth are one of the well-known features of our Prophet (saas). 

"He had wide shoulders. Long wrists. He had an unhurried but fast gait, he walked easily as if he was walking downhill." When he turned, he did so with all his body, he did not turn only with his neck but with all his body. 

"His eyes were very meaningful." He had a deep glance. 

"He was the first one to greet when he encountered someone."

The Messenger of God (saas) did not talk half-heartedly; he used to talk explicitly, lucidly and intelligibly, not referentially or cryptically. "He used to say the essence and talk succinctly." He did not belittle anyone while talking.

"When he was happy, the curves of his face lit up radiantly." When he is happy his face lit up even more. 

When he was going to appear before his community he combed his hair and his beard, he groomed himself and then appeared before them. He said, "God loves those who beautified themselves before appearing in front of their brothers."  That is the sunnah of our Prophet (saas), yet that is horrible for a bigot. 

"He never responded to malice with malice, he forgave, remitted and gave relief." Meaning he used to say, "It is okay if you act like this, or like this." He would use an attitude that would save that person. 

"He used to prefer the easy one if set free between two commands." Our Prophet (saas) eased and facilitated religion, he "preferred the easy command," not the difficult one. 

Hazrat Aisha (as) asked our Prophet (saas), "Do you love me?" because she was his wife. Our Prophet (saas) said, "I do love you." "What is your love like?" asked Hazrat Aisha (as). Our Prophet (saas) said, "I love you like a cobble." Hazrat Aisha (as) used to ask our Prophet, "How is the cobble doing?" from time to time. Our Prophet (saas) used to joke a lot with our mother. 

 

EXPLANATIONS OF VARIOUS VERSES BY MR. ADNAN OKTAR 

(Surat Al-Ahzab; 45-46) "O Prophet! We have sent you as a witness and a bringer of good news and a warner and a caller to God by His permission and a light-giving lamp." The abjad calculation of this verse gave 1997. With doubled letters it gave 2034. It is clearly understood that there will be an enormous development between the years 1997 and 2034. Insha'Allah. "A caller to God by His permission and a light-giving lamp." A light-giving lamp. He gave light. He is a caller to God, he calls to Islam. 

(Surat As-Saffat, 14) " When they see a Sign they only laugh with scorn."  This is a characteristic of the unbelievers. Indeed, you see that they are constantly scorning and mocking; they never talk normally. For whatever reason they have such an abnormal, perverted point of view. It is not possible to forge a reasonable contact with them. They are constantly cynical. 

 

THE REASON WHY GOD VALUES MUSLIMS IS THEİR PRAYERS 

" Say: ´What has My Lord to do with you if you do not call on Him?" (Surat Al-Furqan; 77) That means a Muslim should attach great importance to praying because it is the reason why God values Muslims. "But you have denied the truth, so punishment is bound to come." God gives troubles upon those people - He either creates a troublesome hurricane, or a war or an economic crisis. When people abandon prayers, troubles follow them. 

 

RESPONSE TO EVOLUTIONISTS; GOD SAYS THAT OUR ANCESTORS WERE ALSO ANSWERABLE FOR RELIGION, HE DOESN'T SAY "THEY WERE MONKEYS" 

Pharaoh says, "Do you hear?" He says this just for the disdainfully. He is talking loud anyway, if he hears himself, so would Moses (as).

"He (Moses) said, 'Your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers, the previous peoples'." Pharaoh constantly asks about the past. Pharaoh says, "What about the previous generations?" Darwinists would say, "Our forefathers were monkeys."  Almighty God says, "They were also answerable for religion and so are you." He doesn't say that they were monkeys. 

 

THERE ARE REFERENCES TO ARMIES IN THE QUR'AN 

"And Solomon's hosts of the jinn and the men and the birds were gathered to him, and they were formed into groups." The Qur'an refers to the necessity of soldiers being formed into groups. There are various groups, for instance, there are the jinn, men and birds. It seems that birds refer to  [something like an] air force, right? It seems that men refers to land forces and the jinn refer to the intelligence services. That is because the Prophet Solomon (pbuh) uses jinn in intelligence. For instance the Prophet Solomon (pbuh) has jinns diving for him and those refer to submarines, to the naval forces. So all [military] groups have been mentioned in the Qur'an.  

ACCORDING TO THE QUR'AN, MUSLIMS DO NOT ADDRESS THE IGNORANT, THEY SIMPLY SAY 'PEACE' AND WALK AWAY 

"When they hear worthless talk they turn away from it..." (Surat Al-Qasas; 55) There is much worthless talk on television, many people blabbering. What does God say? "When they hear worthless talk they turn away from it." They do not listen to such talk, they do not give it the time of the day. "... and say, 'We have our actions and you have your actions. Peace be upon you. We do not desire the company of the ignorant'."

Meaning, "We do not take the time to deal with you but we do respect you. What you do is yours, and what we do is ours. Peace to you." See how kindly they talk to them. But Muslims do not address them, they do not quarrel, they do not try to upset them yet simply say that they respect their way of thinking, they  say "peace" in a friendly fashion and walk away.  

 

IN THE HEREAFTER, THE FREEDOM OF BEING INFORMED WILL BE TAKEN AWAY FROM THOSE GOD IS NOT PLEASED WITH 

" That Day the facts will be unclear to them." There is no way to learn from the internet, from here or there in the Hereafter. They can neither learn the news from the television, nor from the internet. They are in the Hereafter "... and they will not be able to question one another."  (Surat Al-Qasas; 66) So God says they will not be able to ask about what is happening, about what is going on. They have no right to be informed in the Hereafter. 

 

IN THE HEREAFTER, THE MOUTHS OF UNBELIEVERS WILL BE SEALED AND THEIR BODIES WILL TELL THEM WHAT THEY'VE BEEN DOING 

(Surah Ya sin; 65) "Today We seal up their mouths and their hands speak to us, and their feet bear witness to what they have earned." The organs in the body will tell them everything that has happened in the Hereafter. Their mouths will be sealed and they will not be able to speak. Their bodies speak and they have no way to lie. God's wisdom manifests everywhere in their bodies.  

IT IS OUT OF HIDDEN KNOWLEDGE THAT THE PROPHET ABRAHAM (PBUH) PRESENTED HIMSELF AS SICK AND SAVED HIMSELF FROM THE HANDS OF UNBELIEVERS 

In order to cut loose from the fierce unbelievers of the time, the Prophet Abraham (pbuh) said, " So what are your thoughts about the Lord of all the worlds? He took a look at the stars and said, ´I am sick'." Actually the Prophet Abraham (pbuh) is not sick but he presents himself as sick. In this way he saves himself. This is the method of the Prophet Abraham (pbuh). This is a hidden knowledge, it is a subtle knowledge. "So they turned their backs on him." So they say, "Beware! If this is the case we need to flee." "... He turned surreptitiously to their gods and said, "Do you not eat? What is the matter with you that you do not speak?" First he says that he is sick and then he goes into action.

They said, "Build a pyre for him and fling him into the blaze!" They tried to outwit him but We made them the lowest. (Surat As-Saffat;98)  They wanted to fling him into that blazing building; but God says that He humiliated them, disgraced them. That is because they foolishly believed in his saying, "I am sick." They are thus deceived by this secret knowledge.

THE EXISTENCE OF HELL IS AN ABSOLUTE FACT 

Some people, primarily youngsters say; "There are flames and chains. That is certainly a product of human imagination."  Alright then, you are looking at the world, looking at the Middle East and see that there are chains everywhere, there are cages everywhere. This is being implemented everywhere. Men are being burnt in cages. There are air bombardments. There are millions living in wreckage, in ruins. And then you say; "No such thing will happen." Yet it does, as you see in this world. Who is the One to create this? God is. And He says "I will create this in the Hereafter as well." But of course not all parts of hell is like this. There will be various forms. Some portions are like unkempt, dirty neighborhoods, some are in flames. Some portions are cold.  There is silence in some parts and screams in others. The goal there is to create an environment that will discomfort unbelievers. 

PEOPLE OF FAITH ARE ALIVE, PEOPLE OF HELL ARE CREATED AS DEAD

If a person is a man of faith, by the Will of God, he should not be afraid. If one says " I exist." And asks "Who created me? " If one has the power to fear God, God would not burn those people of faith. People of hell are dead. God says "They have eyes they do not see with." Would not the eyes of an alive person see? God says "They have ears that do not hear with." I mean God says that they do have ears yet He says "they do not hear with them." Their hearts in their chests are blind as well. That means they do not have the power of inner thought  "They are like cattle," God says. Animals have no consciousness. God says " Such people are like cattle. No, they are even further astray! They are the unaware." He says "You think that they are alive but actually they are dead." What is it that you do not understand here? Almighty God very explicitly explains.  

God is Al-Ghafir (All Forgiving) and Ar-Rahim (Most Merciful). A Muslim, one who fears God would not go to hell. Those who fear God would act as religion demands anyway. There will be no second possibility for such a person. They are created as Muslims anyway. 

" When you see them, their outward form appeals to you, and if they speak you listen to what they say. But they are like propped-up planks of wood." (Surat Al-Munafiqun;4)  Look here, that is a very clear statement. Almighty God says "they are like propped up planks of wood."

Surat Al-Araf, 179 Almighty God says; "Surely, We created many of the jinn and mankind for Hell. They have hearts they do not understand with. They have eyes they do not see with. They have ears they do not hear with. Such people are like cattle. No, they are even further astray! They are the unaware." Look what does, "We created them for Hell" means? They are ready for hell even before they are born. They were ready for hell even before this world was created; this is what that means. Look, these creatures have been created even before this world was created. And for what? They are created for hell. Among whom are they? Among jinn and mankind.

For instance God says tells Muslims "Wherever you are, God will bring you all together." If they are Muslims, they are brought all together. For instance if one is in a certain district of Russia let us say, God takes him and brings him together with Muslims. That is how his destiny is.

Surat An-Nahl "They are dead, not alive, and they are not aware of when they will be raised." Look, they will never be alive anyway. That is what is meant by "they are not aware of when they will be raised."  They are never alive, they are dead in Hell as well. They will be dead for all eternity. They talk nonsense before they are dead. When God asks them something, they talk nonsense. That is why God does not let them speak. That is why God tells them; "Slink away into it and do not speak to Me." That is to prevent discomfort for Muslims. That is because they constantly speak. They are babblers. They do not believe in Hereafter. God says " And they would keep secret their self-reproach when they considered the punishment." They steal a glance and still act arrogantly there. 

They ask " Who has raised us from our resting-place?" They are surprised. That is normal for them to ask this. That is because they actually are raised       from their resting place. They do not understand where they are. Are they dead? Are they not? And they understand only later. Afterwards they say "Alas for us! Who has raised us from our resting-place? This is what the All-Merciful promised us. " They say; 'This is what we have been promised, we have died. This is Hereafter, this is the day of religion, we have only now understood this.' 

They say "If only I had not been given my Book and had not known about my Reckoning! If only death had really been the end!" They do not want to live. They constantly repeat this. But they do so because they are dead. 

The secret in this is not that complicated. People should abide by the Qur'an, they should love God and fear Him and nothing bad would come to them. 

THE DARKNESS AND ABASEMENT IN THE FACES OF UNBELIEVERS IS A MIRACLE

God says " Some faces on that Day will be downcast" and " Some faces on that Day will be radiant."

Those faces are brilliant, radiant and joyous. The unbelievers on the other hand are downcast. Their faces are downcast here as well. Majority of them are. For instance the appearance of the militants of the PKK, their faces are all downcast and they are all filthy. Our Kurdish brothers feel hatred for them when they look at their faces, they have such a filthy appearance. As a matter of fact they could appear to be decent as a tactic. But they cannot get rid of that downcast image, they cannot do it even as a tactic. They all have filthy looking people like rustlers. Our soldiers on the other hand are all radiant. They have such brilliant faces. They are like lambs. They are poles apart. There is a dimensional difference between them. Our soldiers are radiant and the downcast dark appearance on the faces of the PKK militants. They have the appearance of the people of hell, they have the appearance of satan. 

(Surah Yunus; 27) "  It is as if their faces were covered by dark patches of the night. Those are the Companions of the Fire, remaining in it timelessly, for ever."

It is a miracle that all filthy people have such darkened faces. That downcast and filth is immediately recognized on their faces.  Muslims have a lamb like cleanliness on their faces. They are immaculately clean. For instance lambs are animals as well and that is why God says, "they are even further astray." Lambs are innocent and very well behaved. 

GOD CREATES OUR DREAMS FOR US TO UNDERSTAND DEATH 

We constantly die and are returned to life. That is the same, the man is raised and say "Why was I here?" Actually this is how the system here works anyway. I mean this is how we wake up from our dreams. But Muslims are very comfortable. They are comfortable everywhere. Because they put all their trust in God, because they submit to God, they are very comfortable when they are raised in the Hereafter. For instance, Muslims watch the Last Day in peace. What does watching hell in peace mean? That is a miracle. The unbelievers grow pale, their hair grow white out of wear, they become drunk, they fail to talk. God says "you think that they are drunk but they are not. They cannot even talk." All because of the severity of fear. But Muslims invoke God loudly, they thank and praise God in peace and joy as they watch the Last Day breaking lose. There is an immense difference between their attitudes.

 

New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar ( 22 February, 2015)

 

Some people assume that it is difficult for God to create the Hereafter. Actually images constantly flow in front of their eyes on a screen.

I mean like rolls of film. Images flow uninterruptedly like a videotape. Will that flowing image continue or not? That is what their claim is. They say, "This image will stop after a while." There is no reason for that image to stop. Look, the Power Who gives this image to you for an hour, Who is able to give this image to you for two days, for three days, Who is able to give this to you for thousands of years, for millions of years. Right? Is the image not flowing? It is constantly flowing. Yet they say, "It is not possible." Well, you see these images for sixty years. Don't do this. It would have been enough even if you were to see those images only for six minutes. It would have been enough even if you were to see them for six seconds. The images constantly flow. Look, it happens right now as well.  We do not know what we will be talking about in a few minutes? But it is defined in that videotape, when the time comes on that tape, what we will be talking about will appear. What gestures we will be making, what we will be doing, how we will be speaking; all of those are defined. God created them with an amazingly brilliant system. God says, "Do not rush! Be resigned! Put your trust in Me. You will die very comfortably. But if you rush, if you do not put your trust in Me, you will be hurt." 

(Surat An-Nur, 39) "But the actions of those who are unbelievers are like a mirage in the desert. A thirsty man thinks it is water but when he reaches it, he finds it to be nothing at all, but he finds God there. He will pay him his account in full. God is swift at reckoning."

Here, there is a reference to the flow of images. Now look at the structure before your eyes, there is a flat land; an ellipse. A constantly flowing image. It flows constantly. When we look out, we see the image. What is an image? It is a mirage. What is a mirage? It is an image. Who is the True Being? God is. Who do these manifestations belong to? To God. 

DEEP THINKING MEANS A MUSLIM THINKING ON THE SIDE OF GOD WITH GOOD INTENTIONS, WITH ALL HIS SINCERITY AND ALL HIS HONESTY

(Surat Al-Qasas; 60) "Anything you have been given is only the enjoyment of the life of this world and its finery. What is with God is better and longer lasting. So will you not use your intellect?"

If one thinks on it sincerely, he would instantly understand this. One only needs to think sincerely and nothing else. For instance one says, "I am thinking about God deeply." If you think evil; the deeper you think, the deeper your ruination. Thinking deeply is not in that sense; thinking deeply means thinking sincerely. It is thinking with all honesty, with all sincerity, with all good faith. It is thinking on God's side, thinking with a love for God, avoiding thinking against God. One might be thinking against God yet still say, "I am thinking deeply." You would end up in trouble if you do that. A Muslim should constantly be thinking on God's side and look around in good faith. 

OUR PROPHET (SAAS) FOUND IT IMPORTANT FOR HIS COMPANIONS TO APPEAR STRONG 

There is a part during the circumambulation of the Kaaba in which pilgrims used to run. Our Prophet (saas) specifically told his companions to run at this certain place for them to appear strong and fit. As you know during hajj, pilgrims wear ihram and their arms are out in the open. That was for their biceps to be seen. For others to see how thick and strong their arms are.

Explanations of various verses by Mr. Adnan Oktar 

 

(Sural Al-Furqan, 40), "They themselves have come across the city which was rained on by an evil rain." Kobane, for instance: The city was rained on by that evil rain. PKK militants are there as well. "Did they not then see it?" says God. "But they do not expect to rise again." So they do not believe in the Hereafter. They do not believe in God, they are Godless, they are Bookless. See that Almighty God emphasizes the characteristics and the morality of the PKK.  

(Surat Al-Furqan, 43) "Have you seen him who has taken his whims and desires to be his god?" says God. See that; God again asks if we have seen them. That means we will be able to see them on television, in the media, here and there. That verse refers to all ages. I am talking about the way it refers to our age. "Will you then be his guardian?" So God says 'You are not going to make them listen to reason'. They will continue as they are. This is their destiny, God says.  

(Surat Al-Furqan, 44)"Do you suppose that most of them hear or understand?" They are all bone-headed, they would not listen to reason: That is because their minds are inflexible due to their arrogance. I am not saying this for all of them but most of them are like this. That is why they do not have hear. They do not use their minds. It doesn't matter what you talk about, they are fixated on what they have in their minds, they have fixed beliefs. They also have such stern expressions on their face. Facial expressions are humane traits, yet they have monotonous voices, monotonous glances; I mean, they are all ossified in everything they have. You know those types called bulk-headed. They are exactly like that; bulk-headed. Whatever you tell them, whatever you say, they do not leave being bulk-headed. They are just like cattle. Indeed they are even more astray!" That is because when you call out to an animal, they respond. You talk to a dog and it responds. But they do not have such traits, God says. They are even more astray. They are more bulk-headed than cattle.  

(Surat Al-Furqan, 48), “It is He Who sends out the winds, bringing advance news of His mercy." Before the appearance of the Mahdi (pbuh) the portents of his appearance are realized. Before you step into a rose garden, you smell the scent of the roses. You approach the rose tree and find that one you smell. For instance, before the rain, the wind comes and you understand that rain will start soon, you say 'It is about to rain.' Just like that, before the appearance of the Mahdi, the portents of his coming appear. This is how the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) explains his coming; he says before I come, there will be some portents. You will understand my coming from those portents. "And We send down from heaven pure water…" This also refers to the Prophet Jesus Messiah.  There is clear reference to pure water coming down, but it symbolically refers to the Jesus Messiah (pbuh) as well. 

(Surat Al-Furqan, 49) “...so that by it We can bring a dead land to life.. " That is because bringing the dead to life was a miracle of the Prophet Jesus Messiah. And now Mahdi and Jesus will bring wipe away faithlessness in the dead world. Of course the apparent meaning referring to rain, bringing life to the flowers, plants and their beautifying by that, that also refers to the world being brought back to life.

(Surat al-Furqan,51) "If We had wished We could have sent a warner to every town," says God. But We do not do this says God. We are sending a general warner.  

(Surat Al-Qamer, 9) "Before them the people of Noah denied the truth. They denied Our servant saying "he is a mad man," and he was driven away with jeers."

This is what they have been saying about Noah (pbuh). How do they mean “...drive away with jeers”? With television channels, radio, by speaking on them, by using the police, by suing, or else they file complaints here and there. Or else they try to do things by means of mafia-like methods. And they call him a "mad man!". God says "...they denied Our servant, saying he is a madman." That is a method employed by them. They will do the exact same for the Mahdi. Just like they did it for Bediuzzaman. 

 

New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar ( 9 February 2015)

 

Explanations of various verses by Mr. Adnan Oktar 

God is Great in the spiritual sense. God does not need greatness in volume. That is because He is beyond time and space.

People comprehend the Greatness of God to a certain degree. For instance they look away to outer space. They try to visualize the greatness of outer space in their minds. They only think about the vastness of our galaxy. And very mistakenly they imagine the Greatness of God in the sense of volume when they say "God is Great." God is Great in the spiritual sense. God is beyond that. Especially in children, the Greatness of God is mistakenly perceived.  They only perceive Greatness in the sense of volume, in the sense of the vastness of the universe. God is Great in the spiritual sense. God does not need greatness in the sense of volume. That is because He is beyond time and space. Time and space exists for us, however. We say He is the Greatest, very, very Great. And we also call this universe great, we call its vastness great as well. However when compared to a greater entity, the whole universe will be a grain of rice when compared. That is why there is no such thing to call very big or very small. Time and space does not exist in the Sight of God. They only exist for us. 

(Surah Hud, 9) "If We let man taste mercy from Us," Meaning if we let them taste blessings and beauties, "... and then take it away from him,.." meaning if one is left in poverty or loses his jacket or has his car stolen or has an accident, or if his hand is burnt, etc., "... he is despairing, ungrateful."

They rebel against God. What is meant here by being despairing and ungrateful is that they rebel against God and they throw themselves around. God is the One Who previously gave those to you, right? Where does He take them away? In your brain. Where do you throw yourself all over? In your brain. God takes away your car in your brain; He takes away the image of it. He takes away the house inside your brain, he takes away the image from your brain. You will never ever see the house outside. You won't be able to see forever.  You will never be able to see the car outside. You can only see their image in your brain. You throw yourself all over just because the image of them in your brain are taken away. God gives the image in your brain again; this time they jump up and down and rejoice. But God emphasizes the ugliness of this ingratitude. God says "men are cruel and ignorant." Actually God is the One Who gives everything. When God takes away something, one needs to think that there is goodness in that and look at things through the eyes of wisdom. 

"... but if We let him taste blessings after hardship has afflicted him, he says." If we give his heart relief, if we give him goodness or wealth after a hardship which could be illness, a scourge, troubles, fear or uneasiness.  For instance, money could come to him from a place he least expected. "My troubles have gone away,' and he is overjoyed, boastful..."    Meaning the things he did with his own hands; "I have bought a great car!" God gave it to you in your brain.  He says, "I bought it myself. Do you see my hands? I have earned this with my own efforts, with my bare hands." You didn't do it with your own hands. God has created it for you in your brain. Leave aside naïvety, use your mind a little. How could you claim that you have done it with your own hands? You say, "It came from the factory." Cars do not come from the factory. God creates them. How could a factory do something in your brain? What business does a factory have in your brain? Are you not interested in the car in your brain? There is nothing a factory can do there. God is the One Who creates that factory inside your brain. 

(Surah Yunus, 107), "If God afflicts you with harm, no one can remove it except Him. If He desires good for you, no one can avert His favour. He bestows it on whichever of His servants He wills. He is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful."

For instance that could be an illness or a headache, a toothache, his back could ache or his neck might ache or he might get cancer, he might get an ulcer. All those could be brought upon him by God. Cancer cells do not activate without God saying "Be!"  Or else everyday cancer cells would start off in our body. God kills them every single day. Almighty God does not let them proliferate. The cells ask for permission, God does not allow them and He kills them. They ask for permission but God doesn't give them permission so they are killed. That happens every single day. But one day cancer cells ask permission and God lets them, God gives them permission to proliferate. Two, four, eight, sixteen, they reproduce. He creates the cure for it with medicine or takes him away because of that cancer.  "No one can remove it except Him." God is the one to remove a trouble. "If He desires good for you, no one can avert His favor.  So God says that you cannot stop this with someone preventing it, another one obstructing it, one being jealous or envious. “He bestows it upon whichever of His servants He wills." When something comes upon one from the Sight of God, it might be wealth, it might be beauty, it might be health. It might be a scourge or an illness as well. All those come from God. I mean it doesn't happen randomly. For instance, you look and see that your neck is aching, that passes and then your arm starts aching. One might say "it never ends." But he is not even aware that everything happens for a purpose. Because he is in this world for a trial – as a miracle - you are given continuous illnesses. One day he says, "I sprained my ankle! It doesn't end!" It wouldn't. It wouldn't end because you are being tested. But when God gives something to His servants, He gives only so as much they can bear. That is another miracle. For instance, one might be a cancer patient and suffer the pain as much as he can bear. No one suffers more than one can bear. You might think that he is suffering but he might be already dead. He might be talking but he might still be dead. 

(Surah Yunus, 109), " Follow what has been revealed to you and be steadfast until Allah´s judgement comes. He is the Best of Judges."  When one doesn't know destiny you would grovel and suffer. But if you know destiny God gives you abundance and blessings. That endurance becomes a religious observation. That is because submitting to God is like performing prayers every single moment. For instance, you know that every single second comes from God, sometimes your tooth aches and you say "This comes from God," it becomes a religious observance.  You are bestowed with a blessing, for instance food comes and you say "This came to me from God," and it would be a religious observation. For instance when someone takes something, eats something, tastes something, it would be like a religious service. But for instance, they go to a restaurant and say "My friend bought me dinner."  He is not even aware of the fact that God gave them to him. He eats that meal with all his might. He doesn't acquire merit from that. And because he doesn't thank God for that, the abundance, the blessings bestowed upon him would be taken away. Because he doesn't know, such people of disbelief and ignorance cry everyday and grovel everyday. "We cannot earn, we are groveling, we are burnt, we are done, we are scorched," that is all you hear from them.  His wife quarrels, he quarrels, he shouts out, huffs and puffs.  Actually God creates every second of that life. God is always with them, constantly sees, watches and hears and He creates every moment of it. As Almighty God says to the Prophet Moses (pbuh); - I seek refuge with God from the satan - 

 “I am watching you. I see you and I hear you." " ´Go to Pharaoh — he has overstepped the limits." " But speak to him with gentle words so that hopefully he will pay heed or show some fear." That means change your attitude. Actually it is evident, Almighty God knows that it would not work. But He tests His Messenger with that command. He says, "Go". Or else He knows what Pharoah will do, how he will respond. That is because the Torah existed   even before the world was created. Pharoah, what happened afterwards, the discussions that will take place there have all existed even before the world was created. All those things happened, have happened thousands, millions of years ago.

When God is forgotten somehow, pain and sufferings will not leave people alone

Knowing the artistry of God, recognizing the Greatness of God will bring about abundance and takes away troubles and bring about relief.  An illness, a discomfort might also come upon one but as he trusts and submits to God, he would find  relief, peace and abundance in that as well. Whenever God is forgotten, pain and sufferings will not leave people alone. 

If you pay attention, you will see that God emphasizes main topics in the Qur'an. "Trust and submit Me, I am aware of everything." People want technical or scientific topics to be explained. God is the One Who created them all. And the topics that you call technical are constantly changing anyway. Previously there was classic physics and later on quantum physics came up. Then they say, "Pardon us, what we knew as true was false all along."

(Surah Luqman, 22) "Those who submit themselves completely to God and do good have grasped the Firmest Handhold. The end result of all affairs is with God," says God.

How nice that is. "Firmest Handhold." The unbreakable hold of God. The right path of God. Completely complying with the Qur'an. The Qur'an is not complex: There are repetitions in many places. There are many repetitions in the Qur'an, for it to be easily understandable. That is because one might open the cover of the Qur'an and read only two or three pages but even then it would be like he had read the entirety of the Qur'an. In that sense there is great good in the constant repetition of main topics. In that way, no important matter is missed out. The Qur'an talks about either putting trust in God or complete submission to God, time and time again. Bediuzzaman calls that "erudite repetition." Some people consider that as a cause for their irreligiousness and say "There are merely repetitions." In fact, those repetitions are created specifically for you to understand the Qur'an and to have easy access to the Qur'an. For instance one might not be able to do something even though it is explained to him thirty times a day. He might not be able to have full grasp of the situation. But when something is repeated to you time and time again you have a better understanding. That is the benefit in repetitions. 

(Surat An-Naml, 50), “They hatched a plot and We hatched a plot while they were not aware. Says God. For instance people might hatch plots everywhere and others would be terrified about them, saying, "What are we to do with them?" For instance people might hatch plots against the government, they might hatch plots against any institution of the state or against an individual: In reality all those plots hatched are created as disrupted. They are worried in vain. Plots would never be succesful. I mean in their creation, in their very innate structure, those plots are all created as disrupted. They are created as a block. They imagine that their plots are created as one piece when in truth they are created in two pieces. One, the plot itself and the second is the plot as disrupted. It is created as a block, as a whole. Plots are never created as standalone systems. For instance there is the Pharaoh, there is Moses (pbuh), there is Nimrod and there is Abraham (pbuh). There is the antichrist and there is Mahdi (pbuh). The antichrist is the plot hatched and Mahdi is the one who disrupts that plot. That is why there is no need to be worried. 

(Surat An-Naml, 51), “So look at the end result of all their plotting; We utterly destroyed them and their whole people!" says God. Those who act treacherously should think hard. They should be well aware that they will certainly get their just deserts. For instance the PKK will certainly get their just desserts. That is because they are a movement of the antichrist. The movement of the antichrist is certainly mortal.  It is certainly a system that is bound to be destroyed. There are hundreds of verses in the Qur'an. No cruel system, no system of the antichrist can ever remain standing. They have about 40 years' lifespan as depicted in the Qur'an. God would certainly shut them down and crush them. I mean they have about 40 years when in person. But if it is a form of a movement that would of course last longer, that can last longer. 

(Surat At-Taubah , 51) "Say: Nothing can happen to us except what God has ordained for us. He is Our Master. It is in God that the Muslims should put their trust."

Masha'Allah. Those who have fully grasped the secret of putting trust in God, those who hold on to it are the ones who have are given the greatest blessing of the world.  They are given the greatest relief. Bediuzzaman says, "The man is going on a ship, holding on to heavy load. He goes aboard the ship but still holds on to those loads. Actually if he had laid down his loads the ship would carry them anyway." This is how  Bediuzzaman explains putting trust in God. He says "Lay down your loads and put your trust in God. Destiny is like that ship and it takes you away and carries you along." They are groveling because they are unable to put their trust in God. 

(Surat Al-Mujadilah, 19), “Satan has gained mastery over them and made them forget the remembrance of God." Muslims should avoid doing this at all costs. Muslims should constantly keep their hearts with God.  

(Surat Al-Hashr, 19), “Do not be like those who forgot God so He made them forget themselves. Such people are the deviators."

They even forget themselves. Look at the ignominy. Just like they forget God, they forget about themselves as well. They are not even aware of themselves. They live as in a dream. They live a crazy life and then God pours down troubles upon them. None of them can ever be happy. No one who keeps away from God would ever taste happiness.  One who doesn't put his trust in God would never be able to find abundance and relief. 

God is our friend, God is eternal, infinite beauty, God is endless love, endless intelligence. God is the Owner of endless blessings. God is the One Who creates seats, God is the One Who creates you, God is the One Who makes me speak. For instance when you open the Qur'an, the page you turn to was   known even before the world is created.  The verses we read are all defined previously. Every single word we utter is defined in our destiny, masha'Allah.

EXPLANATIONS OF VARIOUS VERSES BY MR. ADNAN OKTAR 

Surat Al-An'Am; 82 Those who have faith and do not mix up their faith with any wrongdoing, they are the ones who are safe; it is they who are guided.

One might wonder how people are guided. For instance, one performs his prayers but goes on with wrongdoings, he mercilessly goes on with his immoral behavior. He does it once more and then once more. He has a tendency towards the unbelievers. He doesn't comply with the words "it is they who are guided." This is not what happens when one is guided. A Muslim does not act psychopathically time and time again. He doesn't do abnormal things. He has faith and he doesn't mix up their faith with any wrongdoing, he doesn't attempt persecution, he doesn't act on cruelty.

The Qur'an defines these acts as cruelty; all kinds of attitudes that would disturb Muslims, that would upset them, that would tire them or that would intimidate them or spy on Muslims. Cruelty means devising plots against Muslims, setting traps against Muslims.  Performing prayers would not save such a person; he should avoid all kinds of cruelty. 

God says;they are the ones for whom there is true security."  Security is what people need the most. When people go to Heaven, before all else they think about how secured they are rather than how they will have fun. There will be no more unwanted incidents. They will all be secure. This is why God draws attention to security in the verse.  

Look, Almighty God says: Surat Al- An'am, 83 "This is the argument We gave to Abraham against his people." Almighty God gives an argument against his people. They will understand from this argument. Does the Prophet Abraham have any wrongdoings? No he doesn't. He is a compassionate, merciful, gentle person. So he doesn't have any wrongdoings against Muslims. On the contrary, there is beauty, kindness in every move he makes, in every step he takes. That is how people who are guided are. 

"We raise in rank anyone We will." A Muslim should never say, "I have performed my prayers, so I will be able to go to Heaven and that would be enough for me." A Muslim should want his rank to be high in Heaven. There are different ranks, Muslims are in a competition with each other. They should want to reach higher and higher. And there is no end to it; how nice this is.  A Muslim should enhance his love infinitely, his compassion, his beneficence infinitely. He should be trustworthy. He should not spy on Muslims. He should not play games and stab them in the back; he should not persecute them.  These are all very easy to do. You tell the man, "Do not persecute others" and he says, "How am I to do that?" That is very easy. God tells you not to act like spies. I mean, it is all done if you do not act immorally. Immorality is difficult, one should strive to do that and crush his good conscience. That is not something that could easily be done. He should act normally and behave like a man, like a normal person. 

Your Lord is All-Wise, All-Knowing." Putting one's trust in God is very important here. For instance, sometimes God gives a rank to some people, gives them power, gives them means. You would not be a person of guidance if you say, "Why did God give him such a rank? Why did He give that person that easiness?"  A person who - may God forbid - questions God would not be a person of guidance. One should say, "There is a goodness, a benevolence behind this. God knows but I don't."

Surat Al-An'am 84: "That is how We recompense the good-doers." God rewards a Muslim quietly. One might say, "I am in misery." God would reward you, if you are patient. If you are not patient, if you constantly complain, how can you expect anything good? Complaining would mean rebellion against God - may God forbid.  If a person is patient, if he constantly thanks God, God would open the doors for him where and when he least expects it. But because they constantly complain, blessings do not come upon them. 

God says "If you are grateful, I will certainly give you increase." They do not believe in this. They say, "No, that is not what is going to happen." And as long as you keep saying it won't happen, you will continue to grovel.  

Blessings will increase if one is grateful. What does being grateful mean? It means abiding by the Qur'an, submitting to God and being pleased with what God gives. The man is not pleased with God and is constantly complaining. He believes – may God forbid - that God has treated him unjustly. How could there be blessings, if this is the case? Of course, such a person is not given blessings. 

Surat Al- An'am, 87: "And some of their forebears, descendants and brothers; We chose them and guided them to a straight path."  Who is from the line of the Prophet Israel (pbuh)? Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is.  Look, Almighty God says "there are names that I didn't give you. We chose them and guided them to a straight path as well." Being guided to a straight path is something completely different. Being chosen is something completely different. Almighty God refers to some people other than these mentioned. And Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is among those people.

EXPLANATION OF HADITH BY MR. ADNAN OKTAR 

Our Prophet (saas) says "A man will rule over Hijaz (Saudi Arabia) who's name will be the name of an animal." As you know, King Fahd Bin Abdul Aziz is currently ruling Saudi Arabia. He is the King of Saudi Arabia. The word "Fahd" means leopard in Arabic.

"When you see him from a distance you will reckon he has a squint in his eye but when you approach him you won't see anything (of being squint-eyed) in his eyes." In his pictures his eyes actually look like he has a squint in his eyes but when you look at him closely you see that he is not squint eyed. This is a 1,400- year old hadith.

"Give me the good news of his death and I will give you the good news of the appearance of the Hujjat (the Mahdi)," says our Prophet (saas). That means after his time, Mahdi (pbuh) will appear and it will be the time of the Mahdi (pbuh). I mean the hadith says "know that Mahdi will appear when the news about the death of this person reaches you.” The coming of this person- the person named Fahd- is a portent of the appearance of the Mahdi (pbuh). 

LOVE AND AFFECTION IS LIVED MOST BEAUTIFULLY IN ISLAM

Muslims are in love with each other, and they do not put a limit to their love because they love with the love of God. Would a man be surprised with the love of God? So there is nothing to be surprised about the love felt for people either. That love constantly increases. A Muslim cannot say, "I love God this much" as he would love endlessly. That excitement is lived because love is endless anyway. Finite things are hard on people. Why does God promise an endless life in Heaven? Being limited pains people, that is why. Only infinite love is beautiful. A Muslim has a beginning, but he doesn't have an end. Almighty God doesn't have a beginning and He doesn't have an end. I seek refuge with God from satan. God says "We gave him judgment while still a child and tenderness and purity from Us," about the Prophet Moses (pbuh) There is no limit in love. Since there is nothing to be surprised about love for God, there is nothing to be surprised about the love felt for the manifestation of God in man.
