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.

EXPLANATIONS FROM THE TORAH REGARDING THE MAHDI (PBUH) AND THE END TIMES 

 "Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel ( it means God is with us)." Book of Isaiah 7:14 And that is the Mahdi (pbuh)

Look how Damascus is explained now;  

"This is what the Lord says: “ For three sins of Damascus,  even for four, I will not relent." This is said about the End Times. In the End Times, in the times of the Mahdi, in the times of Moshiach… "For three sins of Damascus, even for four... Because she threshed Gilead with sledges having iron teeth… I will break down the gate of Damascus." What does breaking down the gate mean? That means breaking down the power that holds that place, that protects that place, the military force that guards that place like a gate. God says,"I will break down the gate of Damascus." 

"The people of Aram (the people of Damascus) will go into exile to Kir,”says the Lord." They will be exiled. As they have been in exile right now. They all came here. Look the Torah talks about the place that they will go as well. "...they will go into exile."

The Torah even gives the names of the cities.

"Is not Hamath like Arpad, and Samaria like Damascus?" Samaria, Hamath and Damascus. The Torah says they all will be devastated and that happened exactly as told. Name by name, city by city are stated in the Torah. The CIA sees this from the Torah. They combine it with the hadiths of our Prophet (saas). The deep secret state of the world sees the   destiny of the world from this perspective and acts accordingly. 

 

New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (19 January, 2015)

 

THE HANDS, EYES AND EARS HAVE INDIVIDUAL MINDS AND MEMORIES TO HAVE THEM SERVE AS WITNESSES IN THE HEREAFTER

For instance, what we are going to talk about today, what we are going to listen to, has all been determined in destiny. They all neatly protected inside "the chest of destiny."  So much so that people say, "What is this Book which does not pass over any action, small or great, without recording it?" All they did, even when they were seven years old are all determined down to the slightest utterance, down to their eyewink. People are amazed to see these details. They say, "Alright, this is my fault, this is my sin, this is my fault but how can all these details be listed? How could my eyes my ears record all these to the finest details?" They have their individual souls, their individual memories and their individual minds. Eyes have individual minds, noses; noses have individual minds, their individual memories. They start talking. Their minds, their memories, are more powerful than people. For instance, the memory of the hand is more powerful than that of people. The hand starts telling about the things done sixty years ago. People say, "How could they remember all these details?" And they start hating themselves. Actually were they not in love with themselves before? Did they not do all these ignominies just for themselves for their lower-selves? Their bodies become a trouble for them. 

"They will ask their skins, ´Why did you testify against us?" So they are irritated. "… and they will reply, ´God gave us speech as He has given speech to everything. He created you in the first place and you will be returned to Him. You did not think to shield yourselves from your hearing, sight…" ears and eyes… "…and skin testifying against you and you thought that God would never know much of what you did." (Surah Fussilat; 21-22)

It is really amazing that the memory of the eyes is more powerful than the memory of people. For instance, the memory of ears is incomparably more powerful than that of humans. The memory of the skin is much more powerful. People will be amazed to see this in the Hereafter.

EXPLANATIONS OF VARIOUS VERSES FROM THE QUR'AN REGARDING WEAPONS BEING A DETERRENT FORCE, BY MR. ADNAN OKTAR 

Almighty God says, I seek refuge with God from the satan, "Arm yourselves against them with all the firepower and cavalry you can muster, to terrify the enemies of God and your enemies, and others besides them whom you do not know. God knows them." (Surat Al Anfal:60) That means the goal is to have a deterrent. That is to use the deterrent force of weapons. If you appear before them with outdated G3's, of course they would not be terrified by you. If you appear before them with rusty weapons, they would not be afraid of you.  

So if you come upon such people in war, make a harsh example of them to deter those coming after them so that hopefully they will pay heed." (Surat Al Anfal: 57)

"Let them find you implacable." (Surat At-Tawba; 123) If they see such a power in you, they would back down. The reason why the PKK is acting so spoiled is because there are no soldiers, no policemen around and the weapons they have are all junk. And then these people are acting like bullies in Mardin with only one hundred and fifty people. The number of these jackals is a maximum of 150. They have dissolved everywhere else; ISIL is ripping them apart every single day anyway. They are ripping them apart wherever they find them. They are all chopped up when they go beyond our borders. They have sought refuge in certain places, now they are going to take them out of those places as well and strangle them wherever they are. Actually they have no power left to do anything. 

Dhul'Qarnayn, the Mahdi of his time said : "Just give me a strong helping hand and I will build a solid barrier between you and them. Bring me ingots of iron!´ ( Surat Al-Qahf, 95-96)  This is the most important raw material of the weapons industry. And with those, weapons made up of iron, we will deter them. 

"Make full-length coats of mail, measuring the links with care. And act rightly, all of you, for I see what you do." (Surah Saba: 11)  Full length coats of mail, meaning armored vehicles: Look, this is the command of the Qur'an.  

God says,  "Go forth, light-armed and heavy-armed, and strive with your wealth." (Surat At-Tawba; 41) For instance, we should have five thousand meter range, ten thousand meter range rockets, hundreds of thousands of rockets. For instance, if the PKK becomes aware of this, the matter would be closed. For instance, if you have a hundred thousand rockets with a five thousand meter range, that means you can turn those places into a living hell. How could they still act like a bully towards you? They would know that you are able to turn their places into a living hell.

GOD COMMISSIONS THE ARCHANGEL MICHAEL FOR  ECONOMIC COLLAPSE

The archangel Michael is the one who causes the economic collapse in the U.S.; God gave orders to Michael and collapsed the economy. How does he do that? Michael inspires people. He inspires their minds and make them do what he wants. God makes Michael instrumental in this and God causes the collapse of the American economy. The reason for that collapse is to pave the special foundation for the appearance of Moshiach Mahdi (pbuh). Does God leave Russia behind? He makes Russia collapse as well. He ordered Michael and will cause the collapse of Russia as well. This again is to pave the way for the Mahdi (pbuh). The world is now being designed for the system of the Mahdi, economies are collapsing,  God creates intense wars all around the world.  But God protects Turkey by means of His command to the archangel Michael. Almighty God says, “Mahdi is there, do not touch those lands.” The country should not be shaken. That is the whole issue.

They are holding lots of meetings, the EU gathers and holds meetings, hundreds of experts gather around and put forth a lot of new ideas but they cannot put an end to this collapse. The wisdom of God, the implementation of Michael renders them helpless.  Thousands of scientists gather around and cannot put an end to this collapse: The command is from God. A committee gave the decision for the collapse of the Russian economy. Almighty God uses a committee, a committee headed by Hazrat Khidr (pbuh) and the Archangel Michael is commissioned with this task as well.

WOMEN ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT ORNAMENTS OF THE WORLD 

 Prohibiting women from having fun is like rooting out a crucial beauty of the world. Women are the most important ornaments of the world. It would be great if women can have fun, if they are happy, if they are joyous, if they are able to show their beauty. "We are to protect women and let them be free." These people - may God forbid - claim that they are animals, because they believe that they are animals; they imagine that women have to be protected. Would it not be better if you quit acting like an animal so that they could live comfortably? Of course, they claim that they are animals and say, "There is a dangerous animal here, so they will be in danger. That is why they should be completely isolated. They should not laugh, they should not dance, they should not be joyous." Why? "There is an animal ready to attack. That animal will hunt them down."

Well then, let us help you out of that animalistic behavior so that you can act humanely and they can live in freedom. Why should they lose their freedom just because you act like an animal? Instead of freeing that animalistic behavior, we should give freedom to humans. Right? They ask for freedom for their animalistic behavior; they want to remain as animals. Behave like a man so that they can live freely. That is as easy as that. This is the formula. 

BOTH MEN AND WOMEN ARE RUINED WHEN THEY LOSE THEIR FAITH AND HONOR 

Both for men and for women, being spiritually and physically powerful is directly associated with being faithful and honorable. What happens when you stop watering a plant? It is ruined and scorched instantly under the sun. That is the same for men and women. Both men and women would be ruined if they lose their faith, once they lose their honor. 

Girls are like flowers: First of all it is not possible for a girl to remain healthy without faith. That is because humans are weak.  They can remain spiritually healthy with faith; once they lose their faith they become ill and many of them become inclined to committing suicide. They constantly have the idea of committing suicide in their minds, but God protects them. They have nervous break downs. Well, my sister you have such a delicate, such a gentle body, to which extent you can take this? This affects every single bit of you.  They go and smoke, they go and drink alcohol, they do all sorts of things. They do everything that would bring ruin on themselves.   But if a young girl lives with her faith, with her deep faith, love and her radiance, if she is brought up with a healthy, reasonable upbringing, she would be like beautiful violet. How beautiful violets are, how fresh and how beautiful they are. But they do not act like this. They say, "So what if I am faithless?"  Well they die, they spiritually die, and when they spiritually lie, they die materially  as well.

GOD COMMANDS MUSLIMS NOT TO BE AFRAID AT THE TIME OF DEATH AND GIVES THEM ASSURANCE

God says, "Don't you be afraid, sad or distressed at the time of death, you are entrusted to Me. I will not make you afraid, I will not make you sad, nothing that would trouble you will happen" to Muslims.  Until the very end, until you get into Heaven. Such feelings do not exist in Heaven anyway. God tells us to put our trust in all these words. If your life is taken with greetings, if your life is taken kindly, it is all done. But God forbid, if their lives are taken with strikes to their backs, to their heads, if their lives are taken in fear, there is nothing that could be done for them. Even if seven of their predecessors come along, they cannot be saved, because this is a sign of their being among the people of Hell.

EXPLANATIONS FROM THE TORAH BY MR. ADNAN OKTAR

The Character of Almighty God is explained in the Psalms. 

Psalm 33:16-18 "There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength. An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength. Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear Him, upon them that hope in His Mercy"

That means nothing can be attained with tanks, cannonballs and planes. Everything is about loving God, fearing God.

Now, what I am saying here is addressing the US, the deep, secret state of the US:

"The Lord foils the plans of the nations." (Psalm 33:19) What do they want to do? They want to break up Turkey, right? They want to prevent the system of the Mahdi. Actually the reason why the PKK is designed- so to speak- in that region is to prevent the system of the Mahdi. They want to build a barricade against the Islamic countries in that region. They want to build an ignominious barrier to isolate the Turkish world and the Arabic world, the Islamic world. A barrier that consists of that PKK lot, that scum of the earth. If you pay attention you'll see that it is planned to envelop the whole Middle East. The goal here is to severe the connection of the system of the Mahdi with the Islamic countries. This is what their real problem is.

"He thwarts the purposes of the peoples." For instance, He thwarts the purposes of the PKK. " But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever."  What is the plan of God? The system of the Mahdi, the Islamic Union. No one could stop it, it will stand firm forever. That is the plan of God.  But their plans are thwarted. Look, they have crumbled up in the face of ISIS.  

"Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord." Meaning blessed is the nation who believes in God.  Who are blessed? Those who believe in God are blessed. Not any specific race, not any specific nation. If they believe in God they are blessed; that is very meaningful. If they do not believe in God, they are not blessed, there is no happiness for them. There is nothing for them to be praised about. 

"The people He chose for His inheritance." Almighty God has chosen the Turkish nation for His inheritance and made them the students of the Mahdi (pbuh).  

From heaven the Lord looks down and sees all mankind." He sees me and He sees you, He sees everyone, all of humanity.  

“In the shelter of Your Presence You hide them from all human intrigues;" What do people do against the Turkish nation right now? They intrigue against the Turkish nation. What does Almighty God do? He wards off one trouble with another. Are there any incidents in Turkey? No. God has driven them off that scourge without even letting them in Turkey with another scourge. Turkey is peaceful. 

"You keep them safe in Your dwelling from accusing tongues." A great majority of the foreign papers are attacking devout people with their accusing tongues, they are attacking Turkey.

"You keep them safe in Your dwelling from accusing tongues.” God keeps the Turkish nation safe in Turkey. He keeps our Kurdish brothers, our Arabian brothers, safe in this land as well. Turkey has become the dwelling of God. Masha'Allah. 

The Torah is a blessed book. Some radicals foolishly side against the Torah. Are these passages compliant with the Qur'an? They are. So why should you side against them? In the Qur'an God says "We sent down the Torah containing guidance and light." If there are any discrepancies with the Qur'an you simply discard those parts.

RESPONSE TO THE RADICALS FROM THE TORAH 

"Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre." On the ten stringed lyre. Well done to the Alevis! They have discovered this and are practicing it. They did not put away this five thousand- year old command of God. They are praising God with music. That is great. They are praising the Messenger of God (saas).

For instance, the Prophet David (pbuh) get carried away and starts dancing with the love of God. The accounts state that people wanted to reprimand him but the Prophet David (pbuh) doesn't even care because he was dancing out of the love of God. The accounts state that he was dancing enthusiastically in the front. Masha'Allah.

"The LORD loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of His unfailing love." Whose love? God's love. Then if you become obsessed with the love of humans, that would be ascribing partners to God. You should love with the love of God. All the songs are full of words mourning their loss.  Love them as the manifestations of God.  If you love them as the manifestations of God, you would feel no need for such songs. You would not feel that pain. Eventually they are pitiable beings; they all die and go to their graves. What are you doing? You are losing yourself saying "I am dying for them, I am burning with love, I am done!"  What would you say about your loved ones when they are in their graves? You simply flee when you see them like that. Who is the One to love then? God. Who is the One Who shows you that image? God.

REAL LOVE WOULD NOT BE FORMED WITHOUT THE LOVE OF GOD 

 

They have no patience for instance, no perseverance. They say, "We're separated!" Why? You are separated because you have no patience. You do not have will -power, you cannot get over your pride, you cannot get over your egoism. You would of course be separated if you cannot get over your pride and egoism. Without perseverance, how many minutes could love last? They cannot keep it going even for a day. Compassion, mercy, humane sentiments; none of those exist in such a mentality. They say, "I do want to love but I can't." That is not acceptable. Before all else, there should be love for God and fear of God. You are not even aware of God. You do not serve God, you do not serve the Qur'an. Would not that girl think about that and say, "This one doesn't even love God, he is not even aware of God's existence, how could he love me?" Wouldn't she think about that? How could she believe you? If you are not even able to love God what would you love in her? You have to have the wisdom to love God, to fear God and to form such an immaculately beautiful statement of love in your service to God so that a logic, credibility could be form. Merely saying, "I love this and I love that!"  wouldn't do that.  

If you do feel love, first you should love God. And show your love for God. Let that be reflected in your life. It is not acceptable to merely say, "I do love" without saying anything. You should carry fervent signs of faith. Then there would be no need for you to look for Zuleyha. God would then send your Zuleyha to you. If you are faithful and wise, God would send your Zuleyha to you. They suppose that they can find Zuleyha simply by searching for her. The fact is God creates Zuleyha. They seem to not know that. They suppose that coincidentally there happens to be a Zuleyha out there somewhere and that they will look for and find her coincidentally.  Even before you were born from your mother, Zuleyha was sent to your side by God if you are faithful enough.  

Many people presume that they can look for and find those they will love: That is not the case. God makes Joseph meet his Zuleyha. Because of his faith God sends Zuleyha to Joseph. Would God send Zuleyha to him if He didn't love Joseph? That is specifically created. The Qur'an says, "Then you arrived at the pre-ordained time, Moses!".

You do not believe in destiny, you do not submit yourself to God, you simply get happy when one comes and feel sad when one goes. In fact, God brings that person to you specifically and takes that person away from you just to show you your weakness and your lack of wisdom because you do not deserve that blessing. God does that to show you that you are not worthy of that blessing, to inflict you with that loss. God does that to you as an affliction because you are not worthy of that. If you were worthy of that love God wouldn't have taken that love away from you. I mean why would that person leave you if you were worthy?
