THE PROPHET JONAH (YUNUS) (PBUH) BEING SWALLOWED BY A LARGE FISH AND HIS BEING SAVED LATER ON ARE EVENTS THAT HAPPENED IN A WAY THAT WOULD NOT TAKE AWAY FREE WILL

That incident actually happened in a way that would not take away free will. They really were on a ship, they really cast lots and he is really thrown overboard. Being swallowed by fish was not something unheard of; there are similar incidents in history. As a matter of fact there is a person who'd been swallowed by a fish and then spewed out after a while, and because of the stomach secretions white marks have been formed on his skin. A skin defect has developed because he remained at there for a long while. This is not something that never happened before and this would not remove  freewill. The fish actually swallowed him and it actually threw him to the shore. As far as I understand, when the fish swallowed him, it went towards the shore for its life. It is not that the fish could digest him because he was a well-built prophet. But of course these all happened according to the Will of God, or else had Almighty God willed so, he would have died there and then. So the fish spewed him out by the shore but he was left there naked. It is understood that because he had the stomach secretions of the fish all over his clothes, he had to throw those clothes away. As I understand it, he washed himself with sea water. He was left there by the sea all naked and covered himself with leaves he found there. Of course, this is a very traumatic incident which would make him think seriously. This is a city in which more than 100,000 people lived. And he was sent there as the Messenger of God and he left them just because they did not accept him. Almighty God compelled him to go back there, so he went back to the city he deserted and performed his duties as a prophet: God has thus shown us the importance of being steadfast and patient. God compelled him to do his tasks.

EXPLANATIONS BY MR.ADNAN OKTAR REGARDING MARTYRS

Martyrs are subjected to trials as well but theirs is a protected trial. I mean they are being tested in the ordinary course of things in a way that they will constantly acquire merits. They know that they are protected and watched over. They are in happiness. They are aware that they will be going to  Heaven. They are in a protected structure, in which they are specifically watched over but which seems to be a trial. I mean theirs is nothing like the system in the world. There are many difficulties, pains in the world but in their system those do not exist. Everything is positive, everything is for the better. For instance, within this system they help their brothers and treat them with beautiful blessings and say beautiful things to them, talk about God. I mean theirs is an easy system but of course they are not aware of that; they do not know that they are dead. They imagine themselves to be alive and taken to a different dimension of life.

EXPLANATIONS OF HADITHS REFERRING TO ISIS

In relation to this mob that will appear in Syria and Iraq, our Prophet (saas) said, "They will also found a state." Indeed, they founded a state. "They are the companions of the state. They will be called by their nicknames." For instance, the man is called Abu Turab, and he really does not use this name at birth. The name of the leader of ISIS who announced on Twitter that they will demolish the Kaa'ba is Abu Turab. 

In reference to ISIS our Prophet (saas) says, "their hair will be overhanging like that of women." I mean he says that their hair will be scrappy and straggly. Indeed that is the case for all the ISIS crew. Actually not one, two, three or four but there are numerous hadiths that perfectly describe them. 

Now one steps up and objects, saying, "But these are terrorists." Actually there will be terrorists all around the world at that time. I mean the world will be shaken up with terror, the antichrist will prevail. Those who say, "I am a Muslim," will engage in terror and those who say, "I am not going to be a Muslim" will engage in terror as well. Of course there will be those who will keep away from terror but terror would shake the whole world. Consequently as stated in the hadiths there will of course be terorrists in this crew but of course our Prophet (saas) speaks in Arabic. He says, "There will be violence, blood will be shed, people will be killed, ten thousands of people will be killed." What is that? Is that not terror? He says, "But in the end, they will abide by the Mahdi(pbuh)." That is very important.

For instance;  "THEY WILL ACT SWIFTLY," says our Prophet (saas). (Ghaybat-e- Nomani p.327) Our Prophet (saas) says, "They will get hold of Kuga and Basra in a single night..."  (Kitab al-Haft al-Sherif, p.174) That is also true, they truely are acting swiftly."The cities they enter will literally be presented to to them," says our Prophet (saas).

"When that is not given to them they will win a victory and WHAT THEY WANT WILL BE PRESENTED TO THEM," says our Prophet (saas) (Majlisi, Biharul Anwar, v.51, p.87). People are presenting their cities instantly and they are instantly accepting them. 

"His (the commander of the ones with black flags) soldiers will have long hair and moustaches, their clothes will be black and they are the men of black flags." (Ghaibat-e-Nomani, p.303) That is quite clear is it not?

"They will kill them (who oppose them) in masses without making any distinctions." (Ghaibat-e-Nomani, p.303) That is what terror is anyway. 

"The ones with black flags will come down to Kufa... " (Hadiths from the classification of Jalal al-din al-Suyuti, p.61, Hadith No: 7.12) This is from the works of Jalal al-din al-Suyuti and they have already came down to Kufa. 

"There will be a great war. In the end the ones with black banners will be victorious. Sufyan will escape with his forces." So Al-Assad escapes with his forces.  "Right at that time, people will wish for and look for the Mahdi." (Hadiths from the classification of Jalal al-din al-Suyuti, p.61. Hadith No: 7.26) That means people will not be pleased with these men. 

"...and they PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE MAHDI " says our Prophet (saas). This is from Imam Suyuti's works. "They will pledge to the Mahdi from my Ahl al-Bayt (from my descend)... (Majlisi, Biharul Anwar, v.51, p.87)

Hazrat Ali (ra) relates; "When you see the ones with the black flags, stick to the land you are on." Do not leave. " Do not move your hands and your feet." Do not fight with these men, do not resist. What is it that we keep telling them? The exact same.

EXPLANATIONS OF THE VERSES FROM THE QUR'AN RELATED WITH THE CHARACTERISTICS OF HYPOCRITES

 

Surat al-Munafiqun; Verse 1 

When the hypocrites come to you they say; "We bear witness that you are indeed the Messenger of God." God knows that you are indeed His Messenger and God bears witness that the hypocrites are certainly liars.

The hypocrites nurse an atrocious grudge against our Prophet (saas). They are very much irritated by his joy, his love for ladies and his constant, amazing love for God. However, those hypocrites of the Dirar masjid develop an evil course. They said, "We are troubled with some of the Muslims. That is because they are not good people, they are after their own pleasure, they are after women. We do love the Prophet Mohammed (pbuh) a lot, he is a very beautiful, good person but these others very much dote on women."

Actually they all hate our Prophet (saas). God says in the Qur'an, I seek refuge with God from the satan, "Your companion (your Prophet (saas)) is not misguided or deluded." This is what the hypocrites say among themselves; they say "he is misguided and deluded," may God forbid. They keep saying, "How could this happen?" They say, "We abide by the Book of God, Alhamdulillah, we are Muslims." Our Prophet (saas) brought the Qur'an. God trusts him and these people do not trust the Messenger of God.  They say, "I abide by the Qur'an." But look they say, "I am a very pious person. See that I keep away from women." They did not bring any women into the Dirar masjid. But women used to come to the masjid of our Prophet (saas), they used to perform their prayers altogether. The hypocrites said, "The pious ones should be coming here to our masjid." God said, "Destroy that masjid of the hypocrites!" And the companions turned that mosque into a flat land. They were playing games, they were treacherous. The fact of the matter was that they were very much troubled by our Prophet (saas). They were jealous of his strength, his joy, his faith, his love for women. That is because God made them burn inside out, these are loveless people full of hatred. They really go and prostrate for an hour, maybe, but there is no woman in their lives, no love. They are cold and rampant. They are calling everyone to that masjid they built saying that they are pious. They keep saying, "What is the harm in having more than one masjid?"  They say, "There is a masjid there and we have a masjid here. There is only one Qur'an and we have the Qur'an here as well. We are abiding by the Prophet (saas) as well and we have nothing to say against him, but the pious people among us are not there in that masjid of theirs. We have the pious ones here." This is how hypocrites operate. They are full of rage against the Prophet (saas) but they conceal their rage.  They are hateful but they conceal their hatred. Hypocrites do not like the Qur'an at all, but act as if they do. The Qur'an scorches the soul of the hypocrite; they hate the Qur'an, may God forbid. They cannot even stand to see the Qur'an. When the Qur'an is recited it burns them inside out as stated in the verses. They look for a place to hide when the Qur'an is recited. God says, "When you mention your Lord alone in the Qur´an, they turn their backs and run away." But when they hear idle talk, they approach you; this is the characteristic of hypocrites. That is why hypocrites play mind-games in their own minds.  They approach everything with plain logic and try to present themselves as pious and superior. They try to present themselves as superior in every aspect. They try and present Muslims as inferior, worse than themselves in every aspect. Hypocrites have an inferiority complex. They are determined to present themselves as superior against the Muslims. That is why they say, "We do not let women in our masjid." In their minds, this is a way of acting superior. Actually this is because of their hypocritical soul. For instance they say, "We are not joking." The way our Prophet (saas), the way Hazrat Ali (ra) makes jokes disturbed the hypocrites a lot. They used to say, "We are serious people. When we smile, we only smile in a way that our teeth could barely be seen." Actually Muslims laugh in joy, they have a merry, joyous laughter.  They have a saying: "Laughing kills the heart." That is a remnant from those times. It is not a saying of our Prophet (saas). The misogyny they've been instilling is also a remnant of those days. For instance the hypocrites say that one should do the exact opposite of what a woman says. They say, "Consult them and then do the exact opposite of what they say." This was a characteristic of the idolaters of Mecca, a characteristic of the hypocrites. For instance the belief that women will be filling  hell was actually a belief among the hypocrites of that time. They hated women. At that time they presented their own ideas as if they belonged our Prophet (saas).  They have spread those words as if they were said by our Prophet (saas). And they even martyred genuine Muslims. For instance they martyred the grandchildren of our Prophet (saas); Hazrat Hasan (ra) and Hazrat Husain (ra). They have martyred that blessed Ahl Al-bayt in Karbala because they were the ones implementing the Qur'an as is due. They were laughing, they were joyous, they loved women. They lived together with women. But that was very harsh to the idolaters of Mecca. Those idolaters hated women. They thought of themselves as superiors because they have had such a superiority feeling they said, "We are superior from this tribe, we are superior from that tribe." Almighty God says- I seek refuge in God from the satan- "...their fanatical rage of Time of Ignorance dragged them till their visit to the graves." The killers of those times were saying, "We are superior to every other nation." As you know they have martyred Hazrat Uthman (ra), they have martyred Hazrat Hasan (ra), Hazrat Husain (ra), they have martyred the Ahl al-bayt. Those blessed ones have never forgotten those pains, they have never forgotten the persecution those hypocrites inflicted upon them. 

Those hypocrites used to invite our Prophet (saas) to the masjid they'd built. They said "Please do come by from time to time Master. You can visit us here. The most pious ones are among us." They were hiding in that isolated places, talking in secret. They were making evil plans. That is why God says, "There is no good in much of their secret talk…" 

Hypocrites make plans in secluded places. They get in touch with the satan and go into a trance. That is why hypocrites always prefer to be alone. They always want to be alone, they always want to be on their own. They do not want that trance with  satan to be disrupted. They go into a trance with  satan and receive information from him. Satan says, "Do this, do that, do this evil act, do that immoral act and create dissension" to them and advise them when they are alone. Because the Name of God is recited when they are around Muslims, their concentration is disrupted. 

That is why the hypocrites cannot stand to hear the Qur'an recited. They feel suffocated, they feel overwhelmed. They feel suffocated by Muslims as well. That is because the radiance in the face of Muslims overwhelms them. Their existence makes them remember God and they feel disturbed. 

Eventually satan drags them into the Hell. There,  satan says, "I only invited you. I am afraid of God." See that he still has the same mentality there. He says, "I have accepted  being in Hell but I am afraid of God. I only called you and you followed me because you are without character."  

Surah Al-Imran; Verse 120

If something good happens to you, it galls them. If something bad strikes you, they rejoice at it. But if you are steadfast and have taqwa, their scheming will not harm you in any way. God encompasses what they do.

Referring to the hypocrites Almighty God says "If something good happens to you, it galls them."  When you have fun, when you laugh, when you are joyous, when you are healthy and sound, it galls them, it pains them, says God. "If something bad strikes you, they rejoice at it." For instance they attempt to publish  reports against you , they attempt to say things against you. Or they rejoice when they hear such things, thinking that it is something bad striking you.  "But if you are steadfast and have piety." God tells us to be steadfast. He says, "I am creating them to serve a purpose." I mean God says, "All the acts of hypocrites are under My control." Hypocrites cannot do anything self-directed. For instance God makes them build the Dirar masjid. God is the One Who creates the hypocrites. They are created for Muslims to attain merits. "If you are steadfast and have piety…" First of all a Muslim is to be steadfast: How can one be steadfast? You submit to God's Will. And you say, "These are created by God. He creates all these for a purpose." Then you will be careful about what is lawful and what is unlawful by religion. 

"...their scheming…" that is because they make intricate, evil schemes. Because satan helps them do that, that evil electricity can instantly be noticed on their faces, that evil style they have can easily be seen.

About the hypocrites God says; "… you could know them by their marks, and recognize them from the way they twist their words." Hypocrites talk nonsense. They do not want to talk about God; this is the characteristic of hypocrites. They burn inside when they talk about God. They always try and talk by giving examples. I mean they give examples from other people, they give examples from their environment. They always talk with examples. This is the main characteristic of hypocrites.  There is an anomaly in the gaze of hypocrites; I mean they try to veil their hatred. That is why the gaze of a hypocrite  becomes dull. But even if they try to conceal, it can easily be understood.   Almighty God says; "If We wished, We would show them to you " Our Prophet (saas) used to recognize them by the leave of God. "…and you can recognize them from the way they twist their words," says Almighty God. They speak nonsense. They talk nonsense without saying anything about God. 

"God encompasses what they do."  What does this mean? God says, “I know all they do. I am the One Who makes them do those things. Therefore do not be anxious, do not be worried. They cannot do anything out of My Will," God says. That is because Muslims are very much revolted by hypocrites, and might feel anxious from time to time thinking that they could act on their own. That is why God says, "Hypocrites cannot do anything out of My control. They can only act within the limits I have defined for them in destiny."

God gives a certain amount of time for hypocrites. For instance they might appear to be healthy, but God says, "I am dragging them into troubles step by step." Each year, each month drags them even closer to the scourges. 

Surat at-Taubah: Verse 74

They swear by God that they said nothing, but they definitely spoke the word of unbelief and returned to unbelief after their Islam. They planned something which they did not achieve and they were vindictive for no other reason than that God and His Messenger had enriched them from His bounty. If they were to repent, it would be better for them. But if they turn away, God will punish them with a painful punishment in this world and the Next World, and they will not find any protector or helper on the earth.

"They swear by God that they said nothing."  Hypocrites constantly speak the word of unbelief, they employ the style of unbelief in their speeches. They imagine that it is not detected and that is why they swear a lot. "… but they definitely spoke the world of unbelief." Meaning they either contradict the prophet, or deny his being their imam. I mean hypocrites are disobedient, impudent and insolent.  "… and returned to unbelief after their Islam." They return to unbelief in secret but they still present themselves as Muslims. "They planned something which they did not achieve." Because they have an inferiority complex, hypocrites constantly desire to present themselves as superior. They always want to show themselves as superiors but they can never achieve that, they are constantly humiliated. God always disgraces them. "…and they were vindictive for no other reason than that God and His Messenger had enriched them from His bounty." Hypocrites are always vindictive. They either try to take revenge with their words or with their eyes. Or they try to disturb Muslims with their immoral acts or they try and make them uneasy or try and get them in trouble. But they do all these under the guise of a Muslim.

"… they were vindictive for no other reason than that God and His Messenger had enriched them from His bounty." So they are eating,drinking and then wildly running around. The Prophet(saas) gives them means, do them favors. But they become even more rampant as they eat and drink. "If they were to repent, it would be better for them." Almighty God says that the door to repentance is open for them. " But if they turn away,.." if they are stubborn…"God will punish them with a painful punishment in this world and the Next World." God says that He will give them pain, illness and scourges in this world as well. "… and they will not find any protector or helper on the earth." God says that they will always be left alone and they will always get their just desserts. 

Surat Al-Imran; Verse 119 

There you are, loving them when they do not love you, even though you have faith in all the Books. When they meet you, they say, ´We have faith.´ But when they leave they bite their fingers out of rage against you. Say, ´Die in your rage.´ God knows what your hearts contain.

 

"… they bite their fingers out of rage against you."

That shows the pain they feel because of their rage. It eats their hearts out. Their hatred  pours out of their eyes. They have such a filthy electricity about them. They want to conceal their hatred but they fail to do so. 

Surat al-Mumtahinah; Verse 2

"If they come upon you, they will be your enemies and stretch out their hands and tongues against you with evil intent, and they would dearly love you to become unbelievers."

"If they come upon you, they will be your enemies." Therefore they have leave. The greatest ideal of a hypocrite is to pull away from a Muslim, to revolt as soon as possible. That is because they need to take up a position. That is to say, to strike from a distance; but of course while doing so, they would not strike their first blow in a way that Muslims would understand. They try to do that in a way they wouldn't understand. And they have a tendency to depart by presenting themselves as Muslims. As God states in the verses of the Qur'an, they say, "Alhamdulillah, we are Muslims. "We bear witness that you are indeed the Messenger of God."  And God says that they are lying. He says that they do not believe in that. He says, "They do not believe that you are the Imam". God says that they are treacherous and without conscience. "… They will be your enemies and stretch out their hands and tongues against you with evil intent." They try and do evil with their hands if they can do that. Meaning they want to do harm like killing, injuring or do any kind of evil with their hands but if they cannot do anything with their hands, then they stretch out their tongues. What do they do then? They try and stretch out their tongues over here and there, over the radio, television, over the internet, wherever they can reach you. Or they try and hurt you with gossip, with their tongues, says God.

"… and they would dearly love you to become unbelievers."

 They say, "If only they could become unbelievers like me." They want to turn Muslims to their way. That is why they want to drag them into their faulty logic, gradually, with their filthy philosophy. And because Muslims see that and feel annoyed by that filth, they keep their distance. And when they keep their distance, hypocrites become even lonelier. They become even more rampant. God says male and female idolaters, male and female hypocrites are from one another.  They constantly seek out each other. A hypocrite would be determined to go to other hypocrites; they attract him like a magnet. Hypocrites burn inside when they are with Muslims. They feel a strong instinctive urge to go to other hypocrites. When they go by their side, they take up a position there and that place becomes their hell. They start following Muslims from that position. They plan their schemes, they plan the immoral acts they will do.

And when they leave, they say that they are doing so in the Name of God. For instance the hypocrites of the Dirar masjid say, "We did not leave you. That is a misunderstanding. It is not true. We are Muslims, Alhamdulillah. Our masjid is only a few hundred meters away.  This is the masjid of our Prophet (saas) and ours is a few hundred meters away. It is not true that we have left, we are altogether anyway.  We will always see each other, we will always be together. But we just feel disturbed by the acts of some Muslims here". They say, "They are laughing a lot, they like women. We are not like that. I am a superior person. I like being superior." Actually they have a severe inferiority complex. 

Our Prophet (saas) is very handsome and they take offense at that. The hypocrites of the Dirar masjid are very ugly. They all are very filthy. They are all ugly people, scoundrels. Our Prophet (saas) became exuberant when revelation came ordering him to destroy the mosque.  The companions went there with their digging tools. They razed the building to the ground. Those hypocrites ornamented that masjid and made it very comfortable to make Muslims go there, to make them jealous. Our Prophet(saas) turned it into a flat land  and that was a great response to the hypocrites of that time. 

Hypocrites always say that. They always say, "We do not want to leave, do not misunderstand us." When something happens, they even say, "Are we not with you anyway? We are together. There is no such thing as being away. We've just kept our distance for a while, that is all. And that was to help you. I mean we've just formed another masjid to facilitate your efforts, in order not to cause any more difficulty for you. Actually we are together, it is not true that we left." 

You insolent person you, you are presenting our Prophet (saas) with a fait accompli! Did the Prophet (saas) tell you to go establish that masjid? You are being a scoundrel. You are attempting to give your piece of mind to the Prophet (saas). Who are you to do that?

When they are asked why they are not striving in the Path of God. They say, "It is too hot out there." They say, "As you see, we would become ill if we go out in this heat. Our homes are out in the open, do you expect us to ruin our families and our children? What are we supposed to do in this heat?" Actually they would have done it if they have had personal gain in that.  For instance Almighty God says, –I seek refuge in God from the satan-  "If it had been a case of easy gains and a short journey, they would have followed you, but the distance was too great for them." They find the distance too great for them because they do not believe that they will attain any results. They do not believe that they will be given a victory. They say, "We've been deceived by the Prophet(saas)" may God forbid. They say, "We've  played around in vain, we've spent our youth here and our lives are ruined." And God gives that as a scourge upon them. Almighty God makes all their efforts and all that they've done come to nothing.

God says, "They are all alike." Male and female hypocrites, male and female idolaters. They have a weird connection between them. For instance hypocrites would not go and side with the idolaters. They instinctively go and side with hypocrites. I mean that is an animalistic instinct. As a Wisdom of God. Actually they should go and directly be with unbelievers. But they don't, they go and side with other hypocrites. They would not go by anyone. For instance when you leave an idolater alone, he wouldn't go side with hypocrites. They go and side with male and female idolaters. Of course, they are another type of menace anyway.

“God casts down filth on them." That is an evil filth. They actually stink and they are very vulgar. Their mouths stink, their backs stink, their faces stink. Everything about them is filthy. Their houses are filthy, they are tasteless. Their females are very rampant. Their males are very envious and very jealous.  Their entire system is built on hatred.

EXPLANATIONS OF HADITHS RELATED WITH THE END TIMES AND HAZRAT MAHDI (PBUH) BY MR. ADNAN OKTAR 

Our Prophet (saas) says, "There will be an incident in Kirkuk about which those that could be saved from it would talk about…"  These are all great details. As you know, ISIS has made a move towards Kirkuk now. 

"An incident will take place near Nusaybin (A city in Mardin province)," says our Prophet (saas). These are the incidents caused by the PKK terror organization. 

He says, "Incidents will take place in Şırnak."

He says, "If a woman would want to go to Damascus from Iraq on foot each of her steps will be on beautiful green grass. And she will be able to show her ornaments, her jewelries. And no one will ever attempt to steal them, to grate or disturb her." So our Prophet (saas) says that women will be able to go there with their ornaments, that they will be able to go there all dressed up. This is from a seven hundred year old book. 

"The Emir of Muslims Imam Ali (pbuh) decreed; "If our Qaim (Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh)) stands the skies grant the rainfall and the earth makes the plants green. Hatred and animosity will be wiped off from the hearts of the servants and even wild and domestic animals do not feel afraid from one another." (Bihar'ul Anwar; V.52, p.316)  Right now Muslims are hanging and chopping  one another up, they are attacking Christians. These will all come to an end.   

"… the one conquering the cities of idolaters is one from the Children of Israel." (Ali b. Sultan Muhammad Al-Qari al-Hanafi "Risaletul Meshreb elverdi fi Mezhebil Mahdi.") He (Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh)) will spiritually conquer the cities in which radicals, fanatics are influential.  

Our Prophet (saas) calls the Mahdi (pbuh)  "The one among my sons…" This is the victory of the son of our Prophet (saas). If a father sends a son to a place and has a job done, would that not be the victory of that father anyway? This victory will be the victory of our Prophet (saas). In the Qur'an, Almighty God says, "Truly We have given you the Great Abundance. So pray to your Lord and sacrifice. It is the one who hates you who is cut off without an heir." (Surat al-Kauthar: 1-3)

EXPLANATIONS OF VERSES FROM SURAT AL-AHZAB BY MR. ADNAN OKTAR 

Surat al-Ahzab; Verse 21 

"You have an excellent model in the Messenger of God, for all who put their hope in God and the Last Day and remember God much."

The Messenger of God (saas) was putting the Qur'an into practice perfectly. If one asks, "How could I put the Qur'an into practice in my life?" That is it; you will do exactly as what our Prophet (saas) did. He presented an amazing easiness for the Muslims with the way he put the Qur'an into practice in his life. It is an art to put the Qur'an into practice in life. A wise person would understand and implement the Qur'an perfectly in his life. For instance, how should one have humility? How should one be freed from the feeling of superiority? How should one live love?  For instance, these traditional hodjas claim that our Prophet (saas) is a very loving person. How about you? You do not utter a single word about love. Only when the subject matter is put up for discussion, only when the word is mentioned in an article do they utter the word, or else they never even pronounce it. And a vast majority of them are Darwinists and materialists. They are Muslims but also Darwinists and theologians; how does that happen?  What would one be saying, what does the Darwinist way of thinking demand? It says, may God forbid, "God did not create" and then he starts making explanations about religion. And then he steps up and says "I am against the system of the Mahdi as well." Well, if you are a Darwinist you will of course be against the system of the Mahdi. First and foremost you claim that "God did not create the universe," and that closes the whole subject anyway. Once you say "God did not create the universe," how could it be possible for you to believe in the Mahdi (pbuh) anyway?

Explanations of hadiths by Mr. Adnan Oktar 

"Dani related from Huzayfa. He said: "The Messenger of God (saas) commanded: There will be a war in Zevra. Huzayfa said; "O the Messenger of God what is Zevra?" He commanded, "Zevra is a city in the East in between rivers, a city in which the most vicious ones of my ummah reside. The cruel ones live there..." (Hadiths from the Classification of Jalaluddin As-Suyuti, The Portents of the Mahdi of the End Times, Al-Muttaqi, p.70) 

Now; when we say that there dark circles, mafia people in Istanbul, does that mean everyone who lives in Istanbul? No, it does not. Those vicious people have settled there, it means that they are concentrated there. The hadith states that these vicious people martyr Muslims between the rivers Euphrates and Tigris. It states that "they martyr Muslims" in that region. That means there are Muslims there. The hadith states that they make life difficult for Muslims. That means there are Muslims there as well. And this is what is happening right now. 

It has been related from Ibn Abbas; "In Zevra (between the rivers Euphrates and Tigris) a red wind will blow that would cause Muslims groan." A communist movement, a red wind. Notice that there is always a mention of this red wind in the End Times. The accounts state that "a red wind will blow," on Muslims between the Euphrates and Tigris rivers. Look; this is the communist PKK movement. “Later on they will go to the scholars to ask about this situation." So that means there are scholars in that region. There are meles (Kurdish mullahs) in that region. "When they go to them they will see that they have been turned into monkeys and pigs and that their faces and their eyes are darkened." That is because they would be dishonest, they would all side with them and now some mullahs are on the side of the PKK. They will become PKK militants. That is actually a miracle. I mean they will present themselves as if they are Muslims even though they would be Darwinist, materialist, atheists, communists. "They will see that their faces and eyes are darkened." That means they will see the darkness, the darkness of unbelief on their faces meaning they will have the appearance of people who persecute others and shed blood.

1,400 YEARS AGO OUR PROPHET (SAAS) FORETOLD THE APPEARANCE OF ISIS WITH BLACK BANNERS AS THE PORTENT OF THE APPEARANCE OF THE MAHDI (PBUH) 

“Naim bin Hamman related from Said Bin Museyyab and he said; “Our Prophet (saas) said, “Black banners of Ibn Abbas appear from the East.” That is to say, among the Arabs,  those with black banners appear. “After they proceed for a while, again this time a smaller group with black banners appears from the East.” Meaning the Middle East. “They will fight against a man from the descent of Abu Sufyan…” Who is Sufyan? Assad. Hafez Al-Assad. A man from the descent of him; this means the fight against Bashar Al-Assad.  See how clear it is, right? “They will eventually come under the obedience of Hazrat Mahdi.” At the end, they will abide by Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). Otherwise if that power were leaderless, that would devastate the world but because they will come under the obedience of Hazrat Mahdi (as), the problem would be settled.

First al-Qaida’s black flags appeared; the big black banners. Now, they are smaller, again from the East, “...this time small black banners appear and fighting against someone from the descent of Sufyan.” Right now this is already happening, “They will eventually come under the obedience of Hazrat Mahdi.”

I’ve always said that everything is related with the system of the Mahdi and they have feigned ignorance about it.

Our Prophet (saas) said, “Await for the reappearance of the awaited one on three occasions.”  They asked the Messenger of God (saas); “What are those three occasions O the Messenger of God?” Our Prophet (saas) replied, “Syrians fight among themselves…” Many groups in Syria can’t get along, so they fight. “…and then black flags arrive and when there is terror and fear in the month of Ramadan.” How many days are left to the month of Ramadan now? Are these all true? They are all true. He is the Loyal Informant. Our Prophet (saas) says that there will be an incident in the month of Ramadan as well. We will see about this.

Mr. ADNAN OKTAR’S EXPLANATIONS REGARDING THE LOWER SELF

Surat Al-Maidah; Verse 80

You see many of them taking those who are unbelievers as their friends. What their lower selves have advanced for them is evil indeed, bringing Allah´s anger down upon them. They will suffer punishment timelessly, for ever.

“You see many of them taking those who are unbelievers as their friends.” That means those who are deniers. “What their lower selves have advanced for them is evil indeed.” What is it that advances for them? Their lower selves. People generally do not attach necessary importance to the concept of the lower self. Actually it is a special force embedded in humans, it is a negative power; may God forbid, it might drive one crazy and might even  make one  commit murder, it might make one commit suicide.  All these troubles happen under the influence of the lower self. People imagine that nothing would  happen if they are guided by their lower selves but actually lots of things happen. It might take one over  and drag them into troubles; the lower self suffocates one.  

Surah Yusuf; Verse 53

I do not say my self was free from blame. The self indeed commands to evil acts — except for those my Lord has mercy on. My Lord, He is Forgiving, Merciful.´

I do not say myself was free from blame.” It is not possible to carry out positive studies with one’s lower self. Lower selves cannot be exonerated. “I do not say my self was free from blame.” It is a force that is active in a person’s soul  constantly commanding  evil.

Surat Ash-Shams; Verse 7

“… and the self and what proportioned it”

“… and the self” God creates the self “… and what proportioned it.” 

God is the One Who proportions the self. And now Almighty God explains that proportioning: 

Surat Ash-Shams; Verse 8 

... and inspired it with depravity or piety (taqwa)”

Look, first God gives aggressive, abnormal wrong feelings to the lower self,  but He also shows the ways to be protected against those with the verses of the Qur’an; the whole system of trial is founded upon that anyways. People need to  recognize this highly dangerous threat of the lower self and be alert and be careful against it. We are to look for the acts that please God the most.  

Surat An-Nisa; Verse 128 

But people are prone to selfish greed. If you do good and have fear of God, God is aware of what you do.

But people are prone to selfish greed.” God says, “I have created that specifically.” It is prone to selfish greed. The lower self, jealousy and selfishness make one’s body do abnormal acts eventually. People assume that nothing bad will happen if one follows his lower self; actually lots of things happen. It would ruin a man. The lower self is the propelling force in those who commit suicide. It drives them mad and drags them into committing suicide. They also commit murders because they abide by their lower selves.   

Surat Al-Mu’minun; Verse 106  

They will say, ´Our Lord, our miserable destiny overpowered us. We were misguided people.

Look, the lower self draws one into misery. The lower self draws one into pessimism, into misery, into seeing all people as bad and seeing one’s self as bad. Eventually they end up committing suicide. It draws one into a lack of love and mercy. A faithful person resists these with the knowledge God gives him. That is because God reveals this in him constantly. God reveals the right choice. God says, “I created the lowerself and proportioned it. I created it with the power of knowing what is right and what is wrong. And you are to abide by the truth, by your conscious.” God says, “Abide by the Qur’an with sincerity.” 

Surat Al-Qıyamah, Verses 14-15 

In fact, man will be clear proof against himself in spite of any excuses he might offer.

Excuses are put forth by the second negative portion of the lower self. Generally people believe in these excuses. They even commit murders and then say, “I don’t regret what I did”. The negative portion of the lower self gives that information to him and he would never even be aware of such a power embedded inside him. He imagines that it is him who does those things. Actually if he could get  control of his lower self, he could live like a king and be really comfortable. 

Surat Al-Baqarah; Verse 109

Many of the People of the Book would love it if they could make you revert to  disbelief after you have become Muslim, showing their innate envy now that the truth is clear to them. 

One looks and sees that Islam is more perfect than Christianity. Heaven, hell everything is perfect. Religious services are perfect, the attitude adopted about explanations of God is perfect. They find that difficult to accept and they eventually start to work to make Muslims abandon Islam. Why? Because of their innate envy. One might be a Jew and yet looks and sees that Islam is perfect and find all sorts of perfection that he fails to see in the Torah. There is perfection in the language. It doesn’t create any kind of distress in their hearts. Everything is perfect, everything is right. They find it hard to accept. Of course, the Qur’an doesn’t say this for all of them; only some Cristians and some Jews are being referred to here. They do this with the innate envy and jealousy they have. 

Surah Al-Qiyamah; Verse 14

In fact, man will be clear proof against himself

They have information against their lowerself. God says,” They know what to do against that.”

Surat An-Nisa; Verse 63

God knows what is in such people´s hearts so turn away from them and warn them and speak to them with words that take effect.

... speak to them with words that take effect.” The lower self is not instantly convinced. That is why they should be spoken to in a clear and effective manner. They should be given information based on the Qur’an, in a sincere and easily perceived manner. They do not realize the hostile force inside them. Actually the lower self is equipped with all sorts of negative information. They go by it because they don’t know any better. This is what lies in the root of all ignominies. 

Surat Al-Mudathir; Verse 38

Every self is held in pledge against what it earne

The lower self is given to every self to be held in pledge temporarily.  

Surat Al-Isra; Verse 14

'Read your Book! Today your own self is reckoner enough against you!'

That is because the lower self is given two types of  information; both positive and negative information is provided. This positive information takes action in the Hereafter. “I have told you the right action, I have explained it to you,” one is told. They are being reminded of that in that day. One is told, “You were given the right information but you did not abide by it. You followed the wrong information even though you were well aware that it was wrong.”

Surah Al-Imran; Verse 30 

On the Day that each self finds the good it did, and the evil it did, present there in front of it, it will wish there were an age between it and then.”

They find the good they did but when they see the things they did in abiding by the negative portions of the lower self, they want to keep clear of that, they do not want to see those acts but they want to see the good they did. Actually they could have avoided all those evils if they had wanted to.

Explanations of various verses from Surat al-Hijr by Mr. Adnan Oktar  

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 56  

He said, ´Who despairs of the mercy of his Lord except for misguided people?´

The Prophet says, “Who despairs of the mercy of his Lord except for misguided people?” We see this in many people; they despair of the mercy of their Lord. Actually God says that it is misguidance. God has power over all things. Everything happens as preordained in destiny. 

 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verses 57-58-59-60

He added, ´What is your business, messengers?´ They said, ´We have been sent to a people who are evildoers —with the exception of the family of Lot, all of whom We will save, except for his wife. We have decreed her to be one of those who stay behind.´

Even though he is a Prophet, he doesn’t know that his wife is a hypocrite. 

 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verses 61-62 

When the Messengers came to the family of Lut, he said, ´You are people we do not know.´ 

So he says, “I do not know you”

 

Surat Al- Hijr; Verses 63-68 

They said, ´We have come to you with what they had doubts about. We have brought you the truth and we are certainly truthful men. Travel with your family in the dead of night, following behind with them in front of you. None of you must look back. Go where you are ordered to.´ We revealed to him the command We had decreed: that on the following morning the last remnant of those people would be cut off. The people of the city came, exulting at the news. He said, ´These are my guests so do not put me to shame. 

Sexually deviant people pound at the Prophet Lot’s door. They have an immoral point of view towards the angels. In that era, women have been masculinized and men have been feminized. Women had a ragged, repulsive, masculinized appearance just like what the radicals are trying to turn them into right about now and that is why men became feminized. 

 

Surat Al- Hijr; Verses 69-70

Have awe of Allah and do not dishonor me.´ They said, ´Did we not forbid you to play host to anyone at all?´ 

That means they always say that to the preachers; “What’s that to you? You have no business with that! Let whoever it is explain whatever is needed to be explain!” That is something Muslims are frequently told. 

 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 71

He said, ´Here are my daughters if you are determined to do something.´

 “Have legitimate relations with them, but do not engage in sexual perversion,” he says. 

 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 72 

By your life! They were wandering blindly in their drunkenness!

That means they are blind in the drunkenness of bigotry; they fail to see the Truth and they have a foolish spirit,  a rampant and aggressive spirit. 

 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verses 73-74 

So the Great Blast seized hold of them at the break of day. We turned the place completely upside down and rained down on them stones of hard-baked clay. 

That means their houses crashed down upon them.  God mentions “stones of hard-baked clay” because the houses at that time were brick houses; so those brick houses crashed down upon them. 

 

Surat Al- Hijr; Verses 75-76

There are certainly Signs in that for the discerning. They were beside a road which still exists.

As an example …

 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 77

There is certainly a Sign in that for Muslims.

But that is for those who have faith.

 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verses 78-79

The people of the Thicket were also wrongdoers. We took revenge on them as well. They are both beside a well-beaten track. 

So Almighty God says, “The wreckage of their destruction is there, go and see them yourselves.” 

 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verses 81-94 

We brought them Our Signs but they turned away from them. They carved out houses from the mountains, feeling safe, but the Great Blast seized hold of them in the morning, so all that they earned was of no use to them. We did not create the heavens and earth and everything between them, except with truth. The Hour is certainly coming, so turn away graciously. Your Lord, He is the Creator, the All-Knowing. We have given you the Seven Often repeated and the Magnificent Qur´an. Do not direct your eyes longingly to what We have given certain of them to enjoy. Do not feel sad concerning them. And take Muslims under your wing. Say: ´I am indeed a clear warner.´ Just as We sent down punishment on the dissectors, those who divide the Qur´an into little pieces. By your Lord, We will question them all, every one of them, about what they did! Proclaim what you have been ordered to and turn away from the idolaters.

“We brought them Our Signs but they turned away from them.” They did not listen to the Qur’an. “They carved houses from the mountain, feeling safe but the Great Blast seized hold of them in the morning so all that they earned was of no use to them.  We did not create the heavens and earth and everything between them, except with truth.” That means everything; for instance televisions, glass, rosaries, mirrors, whatever one might think of;  shoes, everything, all of them are created with a goal. “The Hour is certainly coming…” The time for the Last Day is coming “… so turn away graciously.” Meaning preach religion with fair admonition, have a reasonable way of explaining things and refrain from destructive manners. “Your Lord, He is the Creator, the All-Knowing.” Almighty God says “I am the One creating everything”  “We have given you the Seven Often repeated and the Magnificent Qur´an.” This is the 87th verse and the number “7” is mentioned. “Say: ´I am indeed a clear warner’.”  So he is simply a warner. “Just as We sent down punishment on the dissectors…” Muslims are all divided. For instance they are now trying to divide Turkey, they are trying to divide Islam; they attempt to divide them into denominations, into groups. “… those who divide the Qur´an into little pieces.”  They say that a part of the Qur’an has been taken out and  that part is deemed null. And some of them claim that hadiths are the additions to the Qur’an. They claim that there are added verses to the Qur’an that we are unaware of.  They claim that there are verses except for those in the Qur’an. That is how the radicals have formed a religion right now. “By your Lord, We will question them all, every one of them, about what they did!” says God. “Proclaim what you have been ordered to and turn away from the idolaters.” Who are those idolaters? That radical lot. “They might snipe at you, they can make sharp remarks, they can talk nonsense from the internet, from here or there but you should not be affected by them,” says Almighty God.

 

New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (24 April 2014)

 

Explanations of various verses from Surat Al-Hijr by Mr. Adnan Oktar  

Surat Al- Hijr; Verse 26   

We created mankind out of dried clay formed from fetid black mud.

What kind of mud is this? It is a mud used in ceramics; mud used in the production of porcelain. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 27

We created the jinn before out of the fire of a searing wind.

So that is something like electricity. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 28

When your Lord said to the angels, ´I am creating a human being out of dried clay formed from fetid black mud

Look, “… dried clay formed from fetid black mud…” so God says, “I will create a human being out of porcelain.”

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 29 

“When I have formed him and breathed My Soul into him, fall down in prostration in front of him!´”

Almighty God makes a perfect statue of a human being out of porcelain. When that porcelain is given life, that porcelain statue starts walking all of a sudden; that is how humans are created. God formed that statue looking just like a human. When God breathed His Soul into him, he starts walking, saying “Bismillah”. That is the creation, that is how it happened. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 30-31 

Then the angels prostrated all together, every one of them except Iblis. He disdained to be one of the prostrators.

Because of egocentricity and arrogance. Among people there are also some who refuse to believe in the Existence of God, in the beauty of His existence, in the Wisdoms of God and His Artistry. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 32

He said, ´Iblis, what is it that prevents you being among the prostrators?´

So God says, “Why do you not prostrate with them?” 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 33

He said, ´I will not prostrate to a human being whom You have created out of dried clay formed from fetid black mud.´

That offends the satan, he acts arrogantly. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 34 

He said, ´Get out from here, you are accursed

“A'uzu billahi minash shaitaanir rajeem”: We seek refuge in God from the satan.

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 35-36

The curse will be on you till the Day of Reckoning.´He said, ´My Lord, grant me a reprieve until the Day they are raised again.´ 

So the life it is given is long; for instance, if the life span of the universe is 100,000 years, if the life span of humanity is 200,000 years, it is given 200,000 years of life. But when satan is asked; “How long have you lived?” he will say, ”I lived for a day or for a part of a  day.” So 200,000 years feels like that for him. And that is why it says this; that is how it feels like. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 37-38-39

He said, ´You are among the reprieved until the Day whose time is known.´ He said, ´My Lord, because You misled me, I will make things on the earth seem good to them and I will mislead them all, every one of them, 

He said; “My Lord, because You misled me,   I will make things – rebellion against You and worldly ambitions- Darwinism and materialism – seem good to them.” So he says, “I will make them seem good, so they would appear to be good.” “… and I will mislead them all, every one of them.”

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 40 

“except Your servants among them who are sincere.´”

So the satan says that he cannot mislead sincere servants of God. Satan says, “I will mislead every insincere servant of Yours.”

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 41

He said, ´This is a Straight Path to Me.

God says, “That is right. You are now telling the truth.”

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 42

You have no authority over any of My slaves except for the misled who follow you.´ 

For instance, see that they are now trying to instill doubts and fear in Muslims by saying, “The PKK is inconvincible,” this and that. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 43-44

Hell is the promised meeting-place for all of them. It has seven gates and each gate has its allotted share.

It has seven Gates; those might be magnetic doors, doors maybe people cannot differentiate or it might be an iron door that can easily be seen. We do not know the characteristic of that door.  That is a door people will pass by in masses. But hell is forbidden for Muslims and Heaven is forbidden for unbelievers. When unbelievers come to the door of Heaven, they cannot pass by, the door of the Heaven would push them out. And the doors of the hell would push Muslims out, Muslims cannot enter hell. “… and each gate has its allotted share.” So God says that the door for each group to pass by has been determined.

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 45

Those who have piety will be amid Gardens and Springs: 

Those who have piety, those sincere servants will be amid Gardens and Springs. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 46-47

´Enter them in peace, in complete security!´ We will strip away any rancor in their hearts — brothers, resting on couches face-to-face. 

“… We will strip away any rancor in their hearts…” Muslims do not have any rage or anger against one another. “-...brothers, resting on couches face to face.” They are sitting face to face on couches. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 48

They will not be affected by any tiredness there and they will never be made to leave. 

“They will not be affected by any tiredness there.” In this world when night falls we feel sleepy but that would not be the case in Heaven. “They will not be affected by any tiredness there,” says God and “… they will never be made to leave.” For how long? For all eternity. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 49

Tell My servants that I am the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful, 

So God says; “Even if you commit a sin, even if you make a mistake, I will forgive you, I will protect you.”

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 51

And tell them about the guests of Abraham. 

You know that the Prophet Abraham (pbuh) was very hospitable. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse  52

When they came in to him, they said, ´Peace!´ He said, ´Truly we are afraid of you.´ 

When his guests came they said “Peace” to him and the Prophet Abraham (pbuh) said, “Truly we are afraid of you.” Why is he afraid? He is not afraid of them when they first came. They tell him that they’ve come there from very far away. For instance, they are coming there from hundreds of kilometers away but the clothes they have on are all clean and shiny, their skin is very well groomed and it is all very clean. There is no dust, no soil, no dirt. “Come in,” he says, “have a meal.” He brings in a roasted calf without delay.  And they say, “No, we won’t eat.” He asks, “Why?” And they respond, “We do not eat, that is why.” And then the verse states that the Prophet Abraham (pbuh) was afraid. That is because he understands that he came across an extraordinary being. Later on they say, “We came to take revenge. We came here to take revenge from that perverted nation.” There were people who engaged in perverted relations back at that time as well. And the angels say, “We came to raze them to the ground. You should leave this place, you and your wife.”

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 72

By your life! They were wandering blindly in their drunkenness! 

“By your life!” God takes an oath to the life of the Prophet (saas). “They were wandering blindly in their drunkenness!” God says that they are fool, stupid, mindless, thickheaded and bigoted. God says that “They were wandering blindly in their drunkenness!” They are blind, they fail to see the truth. They were addle-brained. They were inciting depravity with their mindless, foolish character, says God. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 73

So the Great Blast seized hold of them at the break of day. 

The break of day refers to the system of the Mahdi. God says, “So the Great Blast seized hold of them.” That scourge seized hold of them. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 74-75

We turned the place completely upside down and rained down on them stones of hard-baked clay. There are certainly Signs in that for the discerning. 

“There are certainly Signs in that for the discerning.” God says that there are Signs in that for those who have a good head on their shoulders. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 76

They were beside a road which still exists.

They are still there as a warning. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 87 

We have given you the Seven Often repeated and the Magnificent Qur´an.

Almighty God really conceals a secret in sevens.  For instance, look, there had been a drought in 2007. There had been another drought in 2014. No rain fell. For instance, in Hijri 1400 Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) appears. When we go back in time with multiples of 7, we find the foundation date of the Ottomans; when we go back a little more in time with multiples of 7, we go to the time of Oğuzhan. We reach the dates that Turks have founded states. We come across the multiples of 7 throughout history. 7’s will be very important in the system of the Mahdi; the figure 9 as well. Our Prophet (saas) informs us about this in his hadiths. When Hazrat Ali (ra) is asked about the Mahdi (pbuh),  he makes the sign of the figure 9 with his hand. 7's and 9’s are important.
