New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (5 August 2013)
GOD WANTS NOT TO BE AWAY FROM THOSE HE LOVES FOR ALL ETERNITY
Look what God says; He says that paradise and hell are not far away. God says they have been brought closer. He always refers to veils. He says the veil has been lifted. God describes the dimensions very clearly, in a very comprehensible way. God wants us to love Him with our free minds, with our minds that appear to be free. Almighty God says He will manifest Himself in paradise and make us live forever. Indeed, a person who loves will wish not to be separated from the beloved for all time. GOD WANTS NOT TO BE PARTED FROM THOSE HE LOVES FOR ALL ETERNITY. FOR INSTANCE GOD WILL WISH NOT TO BE SEPARATED FROM THE MAHDI, JESUS THE MESSIAH OR BELIEVERS FOR ALL ETERNITY. "THEY LOVE ME, AND I LOVE THEM," GOD SAYS.
MR. ADNAN OKTAR’S REMARKS CONCERNING VERSES FROM SURAT AL-MU’MIN AND SURAT AL-QAMAR
Surat al-Mu'min, Verse 49
Those in the Fire will say to the custodians of Hell, ‘Call on your Lord to make the punishment less for us for just one day.’
“Those in the Fire will say to the custodians of hell, ‘Call on your Lord…” Look, your Lord. They do not say ‘our Lord.’ “Call on your Lord to make the punishment less for us for just one day.” They say, let us rest for one day. Let there be one day without suffering. Let us have a break one day a week. Make the punishment less for us for just one day.’
Surat al-Mu’min, Verse 50
They will ask, ‘Did your Messengers not bring you the Clear Signs?’ They will answer, ‘Yes.’ They will say, ‘Then you call!’ But the calling of the unbelievers only goes astra
That is the normal thing. They should pray themselves.
They will ask, ‘Did your Messengers not bring you the Clear Signs?’ They will answer, ‘Yes.’ Look, Almighty God will ask them about the Mahdi (pbuh). ‘Did he not tell you about the invalidity of Darwinism and materialism?’ ‘Yes, he did.’ “You heard it everywhere. You read about it and examined it. You also saw the proofs of the existence of God. So why did you not believe?’ ‘Out of pride and obstinacy.’ ‘And how long did that pride persist?’ ‘For many years.’ That is a crime. They will say, ‘then you call!’ But they ask the custodians to pray for them. But God says that the prayers of unbelievers only go astray. They continue to be unbelievers even there. Their free will has vanished, they are still unbelievers. They imagine that they are only there, in hell, on a temporary basis. One million years go by, and they still do not understand. They still imagine they will be coming out. But they do not pray to God. Look, ‘Call on your Lord.’ Look at the obstinacy of that! They are specially created entities.
Surat al-Mu'min, Verse 51
We will certainly help Our Messengers and those who have faith both in the life of this world and on the Day the witnesses appear,
God says He will help in this world and in the Hereafter. Believers wonder in the Hereafter, ‘What will we do in that environment?’ But God says there is a witness, a helper, alongside them. They have a special guide. There is light before them and to the right. They are always given security, and the word ‘Greetings’ is used. But they are still anxious. ‘I wonder what will happen,’ they say. God says they have a strong hope, but they are not certain. But they relax when they enter Paradise. Look, human nature continues to exert its effects there.
Surat al-Mu'min, Verse 52
The Day when the excuses of the wrongdoers will not help them. The curse will be on them and they will have the most evil home.
One among them might ask ‘what‘s wrong’ with being irreligious. But he is not just irreligious, he is also wicked. But on the day, their excuses will do them no good. God says their excuses will not help them. Human beings have plenty of excuses, as you know. “The curse will be on them and they will have the most evil home.” God also speaks of a home. So there will also be homes and districts in hell. But these are “the most evil,” says God.
Surat al-Mu’min, Verse 55
So remain steadfast. God’s promise is true. Ask forgiveness for your wrong action and glorify your Lord with praise in the evening and the early morning.
“So remain steadfast,” says Almighty God. His promise is certainly true. We must all trust in His promise. If God says, “I will make Islamic unity,” then that is the truth, and we can expect. The subject of the Mahdi is also true. “Ask forgiveness for your wrong action.” There is beauty and goodness in that. May God forgive all Muslims’ sins, and everyone’s sins. “Glorify your Lord with praise in the evening and the early morning.” Alhamdulillah. Alhamdulillah. Alhamdulillah. We always give thanks to God. This is a good thing, it bestows health, and goodness and beauty and prosperity. There is nothing complicated in it; God is saying, “Give thanks to Me and live as friends.” But this is destiny; there have to be wars. Because without wars, people cannot enjoy the taste of peace.
Surat al-Mu’min, Verse 57
The creation of the heavens and earth is far greater than the creation of mankind. But most of mankind do not know it.
Almighty God says that it is easy for Him to create human beings. For example, they look in the mirror. You know, those multi-faceted mirrors. Hundreds of people suddenly appear. If God wished he could immediately give them all a soul and make them real, all from the same person.
Surat al-Mu’min, Verse 60
Your Lord says, ‘Call on Me and I will answer you. Those who are too proud to worship Me will enter Hell abject.’
Your Lord says, ‘Call on Me and I will answer you.’ God always heeds prayers, in other words. Prayer is a vital thing, but people do not fully understand it, they think it is a waste of time. Yet every prayer is regarded as an act of worship in the Presence of God. Prayer is like the salat. That is regarded as an act of worship by God. For example, someone says, “Grant me wisdom, O Lord,” and God grants him wisdom. “O Lord, deepen my faith,” he says. And He deepens it. These are the most vital matters. For example, he says, “Give me a house.” But what good is a house if he does not strengthen his faith? You would be as uneasy in that house as in the grave. You would be terribly uneasy. “O Lord, give me a wife,” he says. You get married, and that woman will make you miserable. She is literally a nightmare. She does not love you and you do not love her. But if you pray, God will bestow radiance on your wife and on you.
For example, he prays and his country is saved. A whole country is saved through the prayer of one honest person, of an honest, pure person. A whole country is saved when a single Muslim prays for it. People are unaware. It is saved through him. They imagine it happened by chance. But they are saved because of him.
Surat al-Mu’min, Verse 61
God is He Who appointed the night for you so that you might rest in it, and the day for seeing. God pours out His favor on mankind but most people do not show thanks.
“God is He Who appointed the night for you so that you might rest in it.” Night is really the most peaceful time for sleeping. It is harder to sleep during the daytime. Night is like a cradle. “and the day for seeing.” They are specially created. God closes the day like drawing a curtain, everywhere becomes dark. Then God turns a light on, and everywhere becomes bright.
Surat al-Mu'min, Verse 65
He is the Living – there is no god but Him –so call on Him, making your deen sincerely His. Praise be to God, the Lord of all the worlds.
He is the Hayy, the Living – there is no god but Him –so call on Him, making your deen sincerely His. In other words, He needs no intermediaries. Not through a sheikh or anything else; “Call on Him,” says God. Praise be to God, the Lord of all the worlds. Alhamdulillah. Look, God always wants thanks. “What if I give thanks?” one might come up and say. Plenty will then come, without your even being aware of it. And your afflictions will disappear. Money and property will come, and clarity of mind. Your heart will be eased. You will have no depression. Your family will not be troubled. Look, God says He does not just protect the believer, but also those the believer loves. “What is the point of thanks?” they ask. There is no end to it. First of all, God’s approval. God protects that person and those whom he loves. Whatever he loves is also protected. Masha’Allah.
Surat al-Qamar, Verse 29
They called on their companion and he set to it and hamstrung her [camel].
He hamstrings the camel with a sword. Look, Almighty God greatly dislikes cruelty to animals. The reason for the affliction that comes here is the maltreatment of that animal; cruelty to an animal, not to a human being. God destroys the place because of the cruelty to the animal. Cruelty to animals is like cruelty to human beings. God imposes the same punishment in the case of cruelty to animals. Hamstringing; the animal is covered in blood and writhing in pain. Yet the camel is a delightful animal. He is a wicked person, there is a lawful way. Is there any reason for your cruelty to the animal? The animal is writhing and covered in blood. It cannot walk. The animal cannot speak. It cannot tell of its troubles.
Surat al-Qamar, Verses 30-31
How terrible were My punishment and warnings!
We sent a single Blast against them and they were just like a thatcher’s reeds.
God sends a terrible disaster. He is speaking of something like an atom bomb here. There may be an explosion caused by the use of a simpler technique, combining one substance with another. There is something. People of that time had that knowledge. Almighty God makes them His instrument.
Surat al-Qamar, Verse 32
We have made the Qur’an easy to remember. But is there any rememberer there?
One must ask this to the fundamentalists. God says He has made it easy to remember. It has been translated into Turkish. But one of them came up and wrote saying; “We could never understand it in 40 years.” God says that unbelievers cannot understand the Qur’an. This one says, “We could never understand it in 40 years.” Look, this is just what God is saying.
Surat al-Qamar, Verse 34-35
We unleashed a sudden squall of stones against all of them, except the family of Lut, who We rescued before dawn. It was a blessing direct from Our presence. That is how We recompense those who give thanks.
It is amazing. God deliberately sets good people aside in such matters. If there is someone who preaches and talks about Islam, He sets him to one side. Nothing generally happens to such people in mass destructions, by God’s leave.
Surat al-Qamar, Verse 38
Early morning brought them enduring punishment:
Morning is when they are most troubled. God generally strikes in the morning, when people are most relaxed.
Surat al-Qamar, Verse 42
They dismissed every one of Our Signs and so We seized them with the seizing of One Who is Almighty, All-Powerful.
The wicked have always been defeated. The wicked are on the offensive again today. But they are condemned to defeat. The wicked are unaware of this law. Otherwise they would never start. They would not continue being wicked. But their cruelty lasts very little. Some 40 years or so. Then they are buried.
Surat al-Qamar, Verse 43
Are your unbelievers better than those peoples’? Or have you been given exemption in the Books?
People say, “Why do you compare someone to Pharaoh?” But God says “Are they better?” In other words, no unbeliever is better than any other. They are all unbelievers. They are the same if they are unbelievers, insincere cruel and ruthless. “Or have you been given exemption in the Books?” says God. God would have to make such a ruling.
Surat al-Qamar, Verse 44
Or do they say, ‘We are an assembly who will win’?
Look, it is always revenge and killing and wickedness. God does not want that.
Surat al-Qamar, Verse 45
The assembly will be routed and will turn their backs in flight.
It lasts very little. You will see that they will absolutely be defeated in Syria. They will absolutely be defeated in Egypt. But look, only the extremists will be defeated. The true ones, those who follow the Qur’an, will be victorious. Extremists are always defeated in power. An administration can only remain in power on the path of the system of the Mahdi. That is how God creates it. If an administration sticks to the path of the way of the Mahdi, then it cannot be overthrown. It will persist until near the Last Day. Then it will collapse. But it cannot collapse while on the path of the system of the Mahdi.
But since we are close to the Last Day, some administrations will fall very quickly, some governments will fall very quickly. As God wants the system of the Mahdi to prevail right away, because time is short. There are communities, secret communities used by God. They have received their instructions. The reign of Islam, in a system like that of the Mahdi, in systems like the Illuminati, Freemasonry and the Templars. Systems based on polytheism will collapse. These secret communities are helping systems based on polytheism to collapse now. Let me say that quite openly. But they support a system on the path of the Mahdi with all their might so it can prevail. We will see these things in time, insha'Allah.
