Surat al-Ma’ida verse 114

‘Jesus son of Mary said, ‘Allah, our Lord, send down a table to us out of heaven to be a feast for us, for the first and last of us, and as a Sign from You. Provide for us! You are the Best of Providers!’

“‘Jesus son of Mary said, ‘Allah, our Lord, send down a table to us out of heaven to be a feast for us, for the first and last of us, and as a Sign from You.”

Jesus the Messiah declared this incident a feast. Do you see what else there is evidence of here as well? Evidence of his own return. “Provide for us! You are the Best of Providers!" But there are some who say: “The return of Jesus the Messiah from the sky will eliminate the need for free will, it removes all doubt. And because of that it cannot happen”. A table comes down from the sky. How does that not eliminate the need for free will? You regard it as reasonable for a table to descend, so why does the idea of a person coming down puzzle you? Gabriel and the angels come down and that is fine. But the Prophet Jesus? “That would eliminate the need for free will,” they say because it does not suit them. That is their problem because Jesus the Messiah also means the Mahdi, and then the Mahdi means Islamic Unity. 

Surat al-Ma’ida, verse 115

Allah said, ‘I will send it down to you but if anyone among you is disbelieving after that, I will punish him with a punishment the like of which I will not inflict on anyone else in all the worlds!’

“Allah said, ‘I will send it down to you’” I will send the table down. But whom else does He send down? He sends down Jesus the Messiah. He sends down Gabriel. “...but if anyone among you is disbelieving after that, I will punish him with a punishment the like of which I will not inflict on anyone else in all the worlds!” Allah says that if you still fail to heed your conscience, even though this is very clear evidence, then “I will punish you.” 

Almighty Allah asks Prophet Jesus during the questioning in the hereafter. And these people (mistakenly) say, "This verse mentions about the questioning in the hereafter so Prophet Jesus must have died.” Why are they so surprised? Almighty Allah (in many verses) speaks about the Day of Reckoning, about people in the time of the Reckoning. There is nothing surprising in His talking about an event in the Reckoning. Allah speaks of the place of the unbelievers  in the hell, for example. He says that Abu Lahab is in hell (and the verse was sent) while he was still alive. 

Surat al-Ma’ida, verse 116

And when Allah says, ‘Jesus son of Mary! Did you say to people, “Take me and my mother as gods besides Allah?”’ he will say, ‘Glory be to You! It is not for me to say what I have no right to say! If I had said it, then You would have known it. You know what is in my self but I do not know what is in Your Self. You are the Knower of all unseen things.'”

“And when Allah says, ‘Jesus son of Maryam! Did you say to people, “Take me and my mother as gods besides Allah?” You must worship, you must worship Allah alone. You have adopted a polytheistic mindset there because you believe in three divine beings. From those three, select Allah. Pray to Allah. Allah is the One matters, isn’t He? “...he will say, ‘Glory be to You! It is not for me to say what I have no right to say!” "SubhanAllah" he says. "Surely you are beyond that, o Lord.” “If I had said it, then You would have known it. You know what is in my self but I do not know what is in Your Self. You are the Knower of all unseen things.”

He stresses that twice.

Surat az-Zumar, Verse 36

Is Allah not enough for His slave? Yet they try to scare you with others apart from Him” If one strays from the faith, one becomes a dajjal. 

Surat az-Zumar, Verse 37

If Allah misguides someone, he has no guide...” If one strays from the faith one becomes a dajjal. “...and if Allah guides someone,” whoever He makes a mahdi, whoever is a mahdi. “...he cannot be misguided” Dajals have no effect on him. The dajjal; the Misguider. The dajjal does not affect him. “Is Allah not Almighty, Exactor of Revenge?

Allah says He will take revenge from them all.

Surat az-Zumar, Verse 38

 If you ask them, ‘Who created the heavens and the earth?’ Look, Almighty Allah immediately turns to the subject of creation. That is why I brought out the Atlas of Creation . Creation first. “They will say ‘Allah’.” Whoever you ask will say ‘Allah.’

 Surat az-Zumar, Verse 39

Say: ‘My people, do as you think best; that is what I am doing. You will soon know who will receive.’

My people”, the bigots. “...do as you think best” Do whatever you wish in line with your bigoted mindset. “...that is what I am doing” I will also do what is necessary.  You will soon know who will receive.’ Who will triumph, Who is all Mighty.

Surat az-Zumar, Verse 40

 ...a punishment which disgraces him and will unleash against himself an everlasting punishment.’

Notice that it is said, “a punishment which disgraces”, and not “kills”. Allah is the One Who disgraces, humiliates. We will all see it.

Surat az-Zumar, Verse 41

We have sent down to you the Book for mankind with truth. So whoever is guided is guided to his own good and whoever is misguided, it is to his detriment. You are not set over them as a guardian.

We have sent down to you the Book for mankind with truth.” Allah says that He sent down the Qur'an. There is no other provision. “So whoever is guided,” whoever abides by the Qur'an, is guided to his own good. “...whoever is misguided,” whoever swerves from the Qur'an, “...it is to his detriment. You are not set over them as a guardian.” Almighty Allah says that we should not bother ourselves with those who swerve from the right path.

 Surat al-Furqan, 63

The slaves of the All-Merciful” true Muslims, “are those who walk lightly on the earth,” they are humble and modest, they do not put on airs, they do not show off, they do not swagger about as teachers and mullahs. They do not pretend to be saints. They do not pretend to be different to everyone else. They behave normally and warmly. “...and, who, when the ignorant speak to them, say, ‘Peace’;” so the ignorant ones will abuse them and say evil things and seek to upset them. But what must Muslims say in response? They must say ‘Peace’ and move on and not get involved.

Surat al-Furqan, Verse 64 

“...those who pass the night prostrating and standing before their Lord;

They pray in the evening.

Surat al-Furqan, Verse 65

“...those who say, ‘Our Lord, avert from us the punishment of Hell’,” the wrath of hell would normally descend, but Allah sends it away. “...its punishment is inescapable pain.” In other words, a Muslim knows that if you sin, the punishment is hell.

Surat al-Furqan, Verse 66

"It is indeed an evil lodging and abode;” A Muslim should fear it.

Surat al-Furqan, Verse 67

"It is indeed an evil lodging and abode;” A Muslim should fear it.

“...those who, when they spend, are neither extravagant nor mean,” they happily spend money on the path of Allah and do not waste it. They happily spend money if it will go to Muslims, on the path of Allah but they do not waste their money.  “...but take a stance midway between the two;

Lovelessness is the worst scourge afflicting the world. The bigots regard lovelessness as normal. Lovelessness is hell. Lovelessness is a terrible thing. Hatred has entered many people’s hearts. People who hate are very hideous; they live hellish lives and are hugely immoral and there is this lack of quality. Lovelessness leads to lack of quality, and vice-versa. Lovelessness grows very quickly where there is no love. The lack of quality grows where there is no love. Love goes hand in hand with quality.

 

 

New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar ( 8 December 2012)

 

 

Hazrat Ali, Amir al-Muminun narrated from our Prophet (saas) as follows :The most superior of the acts of worship is to await the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi.Our Prophet (saas) mentions the Unity of Islam, the Unity of Islam and the need for a leader.

Imam Sadiq said :

“Whoever dies in awaiting Ahl Bayt, he becomes like  one in the army of the Qaim, the Hazrat Mahdi (as). " This means that if a person dies with the intention of being a follower of Hazrat Mahdi, he earns equal merit with a person who is from Hazrat Mahdi’s army. It is very important to have intentions. Seeking Hazrat Mahdi (as), loving Hazrat Mahdi (as), if one is sure that he is alive, experiencing in his soul his submission and deep love for him. If this becomes the case, our Prophet (saas) says that that person earns merit as if he had struggled in the army of Hazrat Mahdi (as) all through his life.

Our Prophet (saas), “ Before his advent, in the period of Ghaybah’, We can say during the period he was not seen, imprisoned or he was hiding. ‘They ask our Prophet (saas), What will be the benefit of the existence of Hazrat Mahdi (as) ?’ That is to say, it is hidden, you can not see him, so what is the benefit of his existence ?  And our Prophet (saas) answers:

“I swear on Allah Who sent me as a prophet that during the time people cannot see Hazrat Mahdi (as), people benefit from Hazrat Mahdi (as) as if they benefit from the Sun remaining behind the clouds.” That is to say, the Sun exists, it is light but they can't see it, it is behind the clouds but it is still day. The reason for that light is Hazrat Mahdi (as). In other words, even if you don’t see him, you benefit from him. But when he appears, you see him under all circumstances. That is what our Prophet says (saas).

Imam Sadiq (as) narrated from Imam Zayn al –Abidin :  “If Hazrat Mahdi (as) did not exist, nobody would duly worship Allah.”  That is said for the End Times. In other words, the dajjal would be all over the world so the Mahdi will be instrumental in people’s duly  worshiping Allah.

Surah Al Imran, Verse 134

Those who give in times of both ease and hardship, those who control their rage and pardon other people – Allah loves the good-doers –

Those who give in times of both ease and hardship”, even if they have very little money, they use it in the way of Allah. “They control their rage”. A person may get angry, they may be taken unawares, but they have to exercise their will and overcome it, they have to calm themselves. “...and pardon people” Even if he is right, without having any feelings of revenge, he does not harbor any ambitions and renounce his rights. Let’s assume that he has some money, but that money is taken from him unjustly. In this case he says, “All right, I give up that money to you.”  Allah loves the good-  doers. What matters is to be someone deserving the love of Allah.  

Surah Al Imran, Verse 139

Do not give up and do not be downhearted. You shall be uppermost if you are believers.

“…You shall be uppermost if you are believers.” A verse that refers to the system of Hazrat Mahdi (as) and it gives the number 2016. You will definitely become the rulers of the world. “...uppermost” refers to this. When a person is “uppermost”, he becomes politically  and socially higher, because without determining any bounds, He says, “uppermost.

Surah Al Imran, Verse 140

If you have received a wound, they have already received a similar wound. We deal out such days to people turn by turn, so that Allah will know those who have faith and can gather martyrs from among you – Allah does not love wrongdoers –

If you have received a wound, they have already received a similar wound. We deal out such days to people turn by turn.” One party can be defeated, and then the other. Here Almighty Allah again talks about a struggle. For instance, Darwinism first prevailed, and now it is defeated. Allah has made Muslims instrumental in this.

 “…You shall be uppermost if you are believers.”

Surah Al Imran, Verse 146

Many a Prophet has been killed, when there were many thousands with him! They did not give up in the face of what assailed them in the Way of Allah, nor did they weaken, nor did they yield. Allah loves the steadfast.

They did not give up in the face of what assailed them in the Way of Allah, nor did they weaken” For instance, we have never been daunted by Darwinism. We have carried out  scientific activities against Darwinism and Allah finally granted us a victory.

Surat al-Furqan, Verse 56

We sent you only to bring good news and to give warning.”

Giving good news is an attribute of Muslims; giving the good news of paradise and the existence of Allah.The existence of Allah is all by itself a glad tiding. The existence of Allah is the greatest glad tiding. While a person thinks that he will disappear, he understands instead that he will live for all eternity. What a great joy! While one thinks it as all disorder, he   sees instead that the world is  a system designed by Allah. No doubt in order for the trial to exist, some things must be in a way to divert those people with weak comprehension. In such a situation it is, in any case, out of the question for a trial to take place. Now they only consider the shallow aspect of the matter. About the DNA for instance, only 2 percent of it is related  to technical knowledge while 98 percent of it is about the technical knowledge related to the  soul. Because how will a muscle, an eye or brain take orders? All the codes related with what functions  the nerves perform when they spread in particular locations, how will the brain interpret the colors, how will they assess  scents and other information, how will it laugh, play or speak. These are individually coded in a person. When they learn about it, they will see that that 98 percent is also available. They only consider some part of it. For instance, a person uses only some part of his brain. The other parts are useless. But when a person improves his talents and spiritual powers, he starts to experience tremendous things. He starts to see  incidents they could not see, hear the things he couldn’t hear or recognize the unrecognized things. He starts to see unknown dimensions.

Surah Al-Furqan, Verse, 77

Say: ‘What has My Lord to do with you if you do not call on Him? But you have denied the truth, so punishment is bound to come.’

Say: ‘What has My Lord to do with you if you do not call on Him? Surat Furqan, verse 77. There are the repeating 7s.

But you have denied the truth, so punishment is bound to come.

In order to deny the truth, one needs to ignore his conscience. With a regular, a sincere conscience, it is impossible to deny the Qur'an. That is to say, one would not have the might to do it. One needs to have a totally different power, a negative power to deny it. By positive power, a sincere power, a sincere person can never deny it. He can neither deny Allah nor the Qur'an. But of course we can not say anything for a person who is not aware of the Qur'an because he actually does not know anything. But once he analyzes things, sees all the miracles, and bears witness that they are interrelated with science and intelligence, it is impossible for a reasonable person to deny the Qur'an. It is also impossible for a reasonable person to deny Allah’s existence. A person has to have a negative, extraordinary aspect to do that. He has to be created specially. He must have a special creation and he must possess a special negative power otherwise he will not have the power for it.  In other words, his power of conscience alone would not suffice . He simply can not deny Allah. He wouldn’t have the power to do that.

Surat ar-Ra’d, Verse 4.

In the earth there are diverse regions side by side and gardens of grapes and cultivated fields, and palm-trees sharing one root and others with individual roots, all watered with the same water. And We make some things better to eat than others. There are Signs in that for people who use their intellect.

In the earth there are diverse regions side by side and gardens of grapes,” Allah first mentions the grape. Indeed, the grape is a very beautiful fruit. When I see a garden, I want people to plant grapes there. “...and cultivated fields, and palm-trees sharing one root and others with individual roots, all watered with the same water.” Indeed all fruits are magnificent. They all grow in the same place; melons, watermelons, strawberries all come out from the same soil with distinct tastes and they all grow in mud. Oranges, pomegranates, grapes, apricots, sour cherries, they are all very beautiful, masha’Allah. “There are Signs in that for people who use their intellect.” It is evident that they can not be a coincidence, says Allah. “Think about them, think about the blessings that I have bestowed on them. Give thanks to Me.” They are all very delicious. They all have their respective odors and tastes. Mint has its own distinct scent, pepper weed and garden rocket has another.

Surat al-An’am, Verse 111

Even if We sent down angels to them, and the dead spoke to them, and We gathered together everything in front of them right before their eyes, they would still not have faith unless Allah willed. The truth is that most of them are ignorant.

“Even if We sent down angels to them,” “We would not believe if Hazrat Mahdi (as) comes”. The fact is, they would even not believe even if angels come. “...and the dead spoke to them and We gathered together everything in front of them right before their eyes, they would still not have faith unless Allah willed.” That is to say, irreligious people are so rampant that, even seeing the dead speak  and other wonders do not make them believe. They still do not believe. However, the majority of them are ignorant.

Surat al-Anam, Verse 112  

 In this way We have appointed as enemies to every Prophet shaytans from both mankind and from the jinn, who inspire each other with delusions by means of specious words – if your Lord had willed, they would not have done it, so abandon them and all they fabricate –

 “In this way We have appointed as enemies to every Prophet shaytans from both mankind and from the jinn.” So does Hazrat Mahdi (as). More than thirty antichrists struggle against Hazrat Mahdi (as). He also has jinni enemies who go against Hazrat Mahdi (as). “...who inspire each other with delusions by means of specious words” That is to say, they say nonsensical things against Muslims, they slander them. They gossip about Hazrat Mahdi (as) and hold secret talks. “...if your Lord had willed, they would not have done it.” They want to say, “ I am also creating them.” “...so abandon them and all they fabricate” – They can say whatever they wish about Hazrat Mahdi (as).

Surat al-Anam, Verse 113

...so that the hearts of those who do not have faith in the hereafter incline towards them and are pleased with them and perpetrate whatever they perpetrate.

 “...so that the hearts of those who do not have faith in the hereafter incline towards…That is to say, immoral people, impostors, faithless people, those opposed to religion, those who stir up mischief get greatly excited when something against Muslims is said. Allah creates these incidents on purpose, so that they feel pleased with them. “...and are pleased with them and perpetrate whatever they perpetrate.” So that they commit more sins while Muslims earn more merit.

Surat al-Anam, Verse 114

Am I to desire someone other than Allah as a judge when it is He who has sent down the Book to you clarifying everything?’ Those We have given the Book know it has been sent down from your Lord with truth, so on no account be among the doubters.

“'Am I to desire someone other than Allah as a judge?'” says our Prophet (saas). In other words, is there any other source other than the Qur'an? They want to hear anything other than the Qur'an, they do not want to hear the Qur'an. “'...when it is He who has sent down the Book to you clarifying everything?'” Allah makes reference here to the Qur'an. Allah says that the Qur'an is explained. “Those We have given the Book know it has been sent down from your Lord with truth,” Christians and Jews know that the original Qur'an is right. They all know “...so on no account be among the doubters.” Sometimes people ask why Christians or Jews do not have faith, but Allah says that they actually do believe. And “...so on no account be among the doubters.”

Surat al-Anam, Verse 115

The Words of your Lord are perfect in truthfulness and justice. No one can change His Words. He is the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing.

The Words of your Lord are perfect in truthfulness and justice”

Allah says that the Qur'an is accurate in terms of its accuracy and its justice. “...There is no one who can change His Words. He is the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing.”

Surat al-Anam, Verse 116

If you obeyed most of those on earth, they would misguide you from Allah’s Way. They follow nothing but conjecture. They are only guessing.

“If you obeyed most of those on earth, they would misguide you from Allah’s Way.” People should not follow the majority of the people on Earth, they should abide by the Qur'an. “...they would misguide you from Allah’s Way” They can’t believe that so many people lie, but they say otherwise. People must look at the Qur'an. “They follow nothing but conjecture.” These are the fabricated heresies and “They follow nothing but conjecture.” This statement very well explains the radicals.

Surat al-Anam, Verse 123

And likewise in every city We set up its greatest wrongdoers to plot in it. They plot against themselves alone, but they are not aware of it.

Allah definitely thwarts their plots, but they are not aware of it. They assume that they will do something against a Muslim, but Muslims only increase in strength.

Surat al-Anam, Verse 124

Debasement in the sight of Allah and a severe punishment will strike those who did wrong for the plots that they concocted.

Allah says that He will degrade those who hatch plots against Muslims. He will both degrade  and torment them. As you notice, they are indeed always humiliated.

Surat al-Anam, Verse 133

Your Lord is the Rich Beyond Need, the Possessor of Mercy. If He wanted, He could remove you and replace you with anything else He wanted to, just as He produced you from the descendants of another people.

“Your Lord is the Rich Beyond Need, the Possessor of Mercy.” How nice! Human beings need everything, but Allah   needs nothing . He is all-Merciful, the Protector, this is an all-enclosing mercy. “If He wanted, He could remove you and replace you with anything else.” The anti-Christ will be removed by Allah and replaced by the followers of Hazrat Mahdi (as), because the next verse is very meaningful, as we read it now.

Surat al-Anam, Verse 134

What you are promised will come about and you can do nothing to prevent it.

Who is being promised? Prophet Jesus (as) will definitely come. Who is being promised? The Gog and Magog, the appearance of the smoke, Al-Dabbat al-Ardh, and the Day of Judgment. And they can neither prevent the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (as) nor Prophet Jesus (as).

Surat al-Anam, Verse 135

Say: ‘My people, do as you are doing, just as I am doing. You will certainly come to know who will have the best home in the end. The wrongdoers will certainly not be successful.’ 

Say: ‘My people” When he says,My people” there is reference to the impostors, cruel ones, the prevailing forces of that time and anyone who can commit cruelty. ”...do as you are doing.” We understand from this verse that a Muslim does not feel concerned about what the other party commits. He does not say, “Never commit anything.” He says, “Do as you are doing”, for they can only do what is predestined for them and nothing  else. That is to say, irreligious people are not free. A hypocrite is not free. They think that they are  free but they are  not. A hypocrite thinks that he is free to the end, while everything he commits is obvious. “...just as I am doing” What is predestined. “You will certainly come to know who will have the best home in the end.” The abjad calculation gives a value of 1993. “The wrongdoers will certainly not be successful.”  The cruel organizations will not attain salvation.

Surat al-Maida, Verse 57

You who have faith! Do not take as friends any of those given the Book before you or the irreligious who make a mockery and a game out of your religion. Have awe of Allah if you are believers.

We become friends if they don’t deride our religion but if they mock our religion, then we do not become friends with them. “Do not take as friends any of those given the Book,” which means do not make them your administrators. Do not fall under their sovereignty. Do not obey them. “Have awe of Allah if you are believers.”

Surat al-Maida, Verse 64

The Jews say, ‘Allah’s hand is chained.’ Their hands are chained and they are cursed for what they say! No! Both His hands are open wide and He gives however He wills. What has been sent down to you from your Lord increases many of them in insolence and disbelief. We have incited enmity and hatred between them until the Day of Rising. Each time they kindle the fire of war, Allah extinguishes it. They rush about the earth corrupting it. Allah does not love corruptors.

“The Jews say, ‘Allah’s hand is chained.’ Their hands are chained and they are cursed for what they say!”

They think that this verse addresses  all Jews but this is not true and this verse clarifies it. There have been some Jews who said, “Allah’s hand is chained.” Allah curses them because of what they say. As they hear the revelation, they become more ill natured. When we say, “The Qur'an is sufficient”, radicals also give a similar reaction and they go crazy. “We have incited enmity and hatred between them until the Day of Rising.” Indeed some radicals are people full of hatred and rage. “Each time they kindle the fire of war, Allah extinguishes it. They rush about the earth corrupting it. Allah does not love corruptors.” That is, whenever they stir up  mischief, terror, anarchy or inter-regional conflict, Allah extinguishes it. They rush about the earth corrupting it. Allah does not love corruptors. Of course the verse implies that there are such people among the Jews. Indeed, there are always such people. They are inclined to war, conflict and anarchy. But there are also lots of Jews who are very much against war. There are also those siding with Prophet Jesus (as) among Jews, but there are also  pro-war Jews following the anti-Christ.

Surat al-Qaf, Verse 36

How many generations before them We destroyed who had greater force than them and scoured many lands!           Did they find any way of escape?

“How many generations before them We destroyed who had greater force than them and scoured many lands!”      

The forces of Assad right now are superior to those forces in the past in terms of oppressing people. They corner Muslims in their flats, in  basements and shot bullets into their faces and martyred them. “Did they find any way of escape?” Right now, people try to find places to escape; some of them flee to Turkey, others to Jordan. The sign of the verse is apparent.

Surat al-Qaf, Verse 37

“There is a reminder in that for anyone who has a heart,” There is a reminder in that for anyone who has a heart, or who listens well, having seen the evidence.

Those who have heart make good decisions, for they employ their conscience. But Almighty Allah also says, “...or who listens well, having seen the evidence”, that is to say anyone who listens well even though his heart has not entered the equation.  He can also understand with his logic. “There is a reminder in that for anyone who has a heart.” A person with open heart already sees it, says Allah. But those employing their logic also see it.

Surat al-Qaf, Verse 38

We created the heavens and the earth,       and everything between them, in six days and We were not affected by fatigue.

As the People of the Book say, “Allah got exhausted and then He rested.” In response Allah says, “We were not affected by fatigue.” Why would He feel fatigue? You utter the words “Allah” and “fatigue” together. Is this possible? Does Allah ever get exhausted? Then He is not  Allah if He gets exhausted, may Allah forbid. His attribute is not to become tired. He does not suffer from any weaknesses.

Surat al-Qaf, Verse 39

O, be patient in the face of what they say and O, be patient in the face of what they say and glorify your Lord with praise before the rising of the sun and before it sets.

Sura al-Qaf, Verse 41

Listen out for the Day when the Summoner shall call out from a nearby place.

The Summoner is also the Hazrat Mahdi (as). Hazrat Mahdi (as) will call people to Islam, the Qur'an, and Unity of Islam. “From a nearby place, from where?” For instance, from the TV; people can hear it from the closest place.  People will also hear the voice of Hazrat Mahdi (as), who is also the Summoner,  everywhere. From a close place. This is the figurative meaning. There is a Summoner at the End Times, this is the aspect of the verse that refers to Hazrat Mahdi (as).

Surat al-Qaf, Verse 42

The Day they hear the Blast in truth, that is the Day of Emergence.

“The Day they hear the Blast in truth,” Hazrat Mahdi (as) will recite the oneness of Allah, his saying, ‘Allah is the One’. “That is the Day of Emergence.” It is the emergence of Hazrat Mahdi (as). The emergence of Prophet Jesus (as). Islam will appear and the Unity of Islam will be established.

Surat al-Qaf, Verse 43

It is We Who give life and cause to die and We are their final destination.

“It is We Who give life and cause to die.” Notice that it is not said, “who killed and gave life”. It seems that there is a very important sign here about Prophet Jesus (as), for Prophet Jesus (as) was taken to heaven while he was in a state of sleep. Sleep is a kind of death. We are revived everyday from sleep, right? We die everyday and then we are revived. Prophet Jesus (as) will also be revived by Almighty Allah when he comes to the world, then Allah will take his life back. That is, following the establishment of the Unity of Islam, once the Unity of Islam reigns throughout the world. “We are their final destination.” Everyone will turn to Allah.

Surat al-Qaf, Verse 44

The Day the earth splits open all around them as they come rushing forth, that is a gathering, easy for Us to accomplish.

“The Day the earth splits open all around them as they come rushing forth.” When we say “splitting of the world”; people  think that their graves will still remain intact when the world is split.  The fact is on the Day of Judgment those graves will be reduced to dust. That grave is not meant. The splitting may refer to the splitting of the dimension. Allah may call it “the earth”. From that dimension, “...they come rushing forth”. Allah knows best. What do they do when they see themselves standing up all of a sudden? They rush forth. “...that is a gathering, easy for Us to accomplish.” In other words, Allah says that we consider it to be very difficult, but it is very easy for Allah. Allah says that it is unimaginably easy. Allah splits that dimension. He says that they will rush towards a particular point. The Summoner calls them towards a particular place. That is why they do not understand and ask, “Where are we? Are we in the world or in the Hereafter?” They simply don’t understand. They only understand that they are dead after a while. Then they say, “This is the day promised to us.” It is very weird. They don’t understand that they are dead. They think that they lead their lives normally. They think that they have just awoken. They are taken out from one dimension and put into another dimension but they are still not aware of it. They ask, “Who woke us from our dream?” they say, “We were sleeping soundly.” They think that they are sleeping.

Surat al-Qaf, Verse 45

We know best what they say. You are not a dictator over them. So remind, with the Qur’an, whoever fears My Threat.

“We know best what they say. You are not a dictator over them.” There is a reference to Hazrat Mahdi (as) here, he is not a person who exerts oppression. He is full of compassion and mercy. The profession of Hazrat Mahdi (as) is love, compassion, mercy, forgiveness and mildness. What is the profession of the bigots? Hate, rage, revenge, hanging and chopping people up. “We know best what they say. You are not a dictator over them.” Why does Allah say so? Because He says, ‘I am the One Who creates.” Allah is the One Who creates those speeches made against Muslims and He knows them all. “So remind, with the Qur’an, whoever fears My Threat.”

Notice that Allah only mentions the Qur'an; not the book of such-and-such an Islamic scholar, or other books. Do you know what Allah accepts? Allah says that He only accepts giving admonitions in line with the Qur'an. Allah says that He does not accept otherwise.

Surat al-Falaq, Verse 1

Say: ‘I seek refuge with the Lord of Daybreak,

The abjad gives the number 1934; there is reference to the important incidents that took place then.

Surat al-Falaq, Verse 2

...from the evil of what He has created

1941; that highest point  of  WWII, the worst period.

Surat al-Falaq, Verse 3

...and from the evil of the darkness when it gathers

1971; the date that anarchy began in Turkey. Bediüzzaman accentuates this.

Surat al-Falaq, Verse 4

...and from the evil of women who blow on knots

1938; in that year, some rampant women’s associations  attacked Islam and the Qur'an tremendously.

Surat al-Falaq, Verse 5

 ...and from the evil of an envier when he envies.’

2020 becomes the end of those who are envious. These are all meaningful.

Would namaz (regular prayer) be like exercise? You stand still for Allah and so do the angels. This is  great respect for Allah; one expresses his gratitude to Allah. You bend before Allah, you do not admit your pride here, you express your slavery by bending; what does it has to do with exercise? What is asked is to bend a few times; a person makes hundreds more activities during the day. By prostrating you disregard your pride. You bow before Almighty Allah. Some people say, “It is also beneficial in terms of exercise.” What does it have to do with exercise? During the day many things happen, something falls down for instance, you bend and pick it up. It does not have anything  to do with exercise or gymnastics. There you show your humbleness. You show your gratitude to Allah. If someone shows benevolence to you, for instance, someone gave a gift to you, a pen. You simply thank  him. Then he presented a watch to you. You remain silent. Then he offered you food. You remain silent. He bought you clothes. You remain silent. Does this have any rationale? As you give thanks, you feel relieved. Right? You see the blessings of Allah everyday. REMEMBERING ALLAH EVERY DAY, RECITING HIS NAME GLADDENS HIS HEART EVERYDAY. IT IS AN EXPRESSION OF LOVE, A DISPLAY OF LOVE. One says, “My Lord, many thanks to you.” The other day, you give thanks again. ALLAH DOES NOT FEEL TIRED OF POURING DOWN BLESSINGS, SO WE SHOULD ALSO NOT FEEL TIRED OF GIVING THANKS TO ALLAH. ALLAH DOES NOT FEEL TIRED OF LOVING YOU, SO YOU WILL ALSO NOT FEEL TIRED OF LOVING ALLAH. How nice it is to give thanks to Allah everyday. Praying is a great blessing. Praying is a great blessing. Praying is a great beauty. Prayer is relief. PRAYER IS GIVING THANKS TO ALLAH, IT IS  A DISPLAY OF LOVE. You love fragrance, are you bored of a fragrance? Would one ever feel bored of Allah? Or would ever feel bored of giving thanks to Allah? Would you ever feel bored of love? Right? It is a blessing. Would one ever feel bored of his Lover? Prayer is an obligation. It is an inseparable part of being  Muslim. PRAYER CANNOT BE DETACHED FROM A MUSLIM. PRAYER IS  ATTACHED TO A MUSLIM; IT IS LIKE BREATHING IN AND OUT TOGETHER, LIKE A HEART BEAT. Would one ever live without giving thanks to Allah? It is an expression of love, of giving thanks to Allah.

Surah Fussilat, Verse 10

He placed firmly embedded mountains on it, towering over it, and blessed it and measured out its nourishment in it, laid out for those who seek it – all in four days.

He placed firmly embedded mountains on it”, mountains, great buildings, unshakable tall skyscrapers, Allah creates them all. This verse does not refer to mountains alone; it refers to everything made of concrete, stone and soil. Especially the skyscrapers. “...and blessed it”. Trade, opportunities, agriculture, husbandry, everything. “...and measured out its nourishment in it. Four days. “

Surah Fussilat, 11

Then He turned to heaven when it was smoke and said to it and to the earth, ‘Come willingly or unwillingly.’    They both said, ‘We come willingly.’

Then He turned to heaven when it was smoke” says Almighty Allah.  “...and said to it and to the earth, ‘Come willingly or unwillingly.’            They both said, ‘We come willingly.’” If we analyze the verse one by one, we see that there are coded, covert signs. Verse 11, September 11. “Then He turned to heaven when it was smoke”. Everywhere was filled with smoke when the Twin Towers collapsed.  It was a tremendous cloud of smoke and dust. Notice that the verse relates, “‘Come willingly or unwillingly.’            They both said, ‘We come willingly.’ Both of them, both of the towers. Where? To the ground. When Allah said “Come” then both of the towers collapsed. They followed the commandments of Allah and melted like sand. The two buildings is a sign. The melting of both towers, giant towers. This is something unprecedented. The melting of such a building, the melting of a skyscraper has never happened before. This is the figurative meaning other than its apparent meaning.

Surat az-Zukhruf, Verse 52

Am I not better than this man who is contemptible and can scarcely make anything clear?

Pharaoh says, "Am I not better than this man” Those who oppose Hazrat Mahdi (as) always say that they are more auspicious, blessed and knowledgeable than Hazrat Mahdi (as). “...who is contemptible and can scarcely make anything clear?” That is to say, he can not read the Qur'an and speak properly. They will also say the same things to Hazrat Mahdi (as). They  say that he is not a scholar, not compatible with Islam and not well -known. He is an ordinary person and thus can not be Hazrat Mahdi (as). At that time also Pharaoh calls him a poor person, not a person who can be a prophet, may Allah forbid.

Surat az-Zuhruf Suresi, Verse 53

'Why have gold bracelets not been put upon his arms and why is there not a train of angels accompanying him?’

An angel is invisible, otherwise we lose our free will. If one says, “This is Hazrat Mahdi (as), then he already receives revelation.” Having faith in an angel becomes obligatory then, and it removes the free will. Then the hadith which relates that Hazrat Mahdi (as) does not know that he is the Mahdi becomes meaningless, for Hazrat Mahdi (as) already hears it. He can not say that he is not Hazrat Mahdi (as)  because then he would be refuting the angel and the people around him have to believe him, it becomes compulsory. Then they will be receiving revelation. It becomes like a prophet who receives a Book, Allah forbid, and a provision appears. However, the last book is the Qur'an. No other book will be revealed again.

THERE IS A NEGATIVE POWER CALLED SATAN BUT HIS INFLUENCE IS WEAK. WHAT IS ESSENTIAL IS; IF WE EMPLOY OUR CONSCIENCE AND MIND, THE KNOWLEDGE OF THAT REACHES US. IT IS INSPIRED IN US. FOR INSTANCE, WHILE WE MAY DO SOMETHING WRONG, IT IS INSPIRED TO US. IT IS INSPIRED IN OUR HEARTS. IF WE RESIST THAT INFORMATION COMING INTO OUR HEARTS, WE ARE VIOLATING OUR CONSCIENCES. IF WE ACT ON IT WITHOUT RESISTANCE, THEN WE ARE HEEDING OUR CONSCIENCE.

Surat an-Nisa, Verse 75

What reason could you have for not fighting in the Way of Allah – for those men, women and children who are oppressed and say, ‘Our Lord, take us out of this city whose inhabitants are wrongdoers! Give us a protector from You! Give us a helper from You!’?

What reason could you have for not fighting in the Way of Allah: " Our Lord, take us out of this city whose inhabitants are wrongdoers!,”  A nation who follows the anti-Christ. Give us a protector from You!The owner of  that time. In the Qur'an, Allah relates that people must ask for Hazrat Mahdi (as). Give us a protector from You!” The owner of the time, a Mahdi. “...for those men, women and children who are oppressed A verse that directly relates to Hazrat Mahdi (as) and the Qur'an communicates to us that people must ask for a Mahdi (as). We see from the Qur'an how it is to ask for a Mahdi . What would a Muslim say? “Lord, send us a Mahdi, a savior from your Sight.” Allah says this in the verse.

Surat al-Baqara, Verse 246

What do you think about the council of the tribe of Israel after Moses' time when they said to one of their Prophets, ‘Give us a king and we will fight in the Way of Allah!’? He said, ‘Is it not possible that if fighting were prescribed for you, you would not fight?’ They said, ‘How could we not fight in the way of Allah when we have been driven from our homes and children?’ But then when fighting was prescribed for them, they turned their backs – except for a few of them. Allah knows the wrongdoers.

When Hazrat Mahdi (as) appears, they don’t want to help him.

Surat al-Baqara, verse 247

Their Prophet said to them, ‘Allah has appointed Talut to be your king.’ They said, ‘How can he have kingship over us when we have much more right to kingship than he does? He has not even got much wealth!’ He said, ‘Allah has chosen him over you and favored him greatly in knowledge and physical strength. Allah gives kingship to anyone He wills. Allah is All-Encompassing, All-Knowing.’

“Their Prophet said to them, ‘Allah has appointed Talut to be your king.’” As an imam. That means that a society does not remain without an imam. “They said, ‘How can he have kingship over us when we have much more right to kingship than he does?” That is to say, “ We deserve to be Hazrat Mahdi (as) more than him. We are more wealthy, more well-renowned.” 'He has not even got much wealth!’ “He has no wealth, no entourage, so how can he lead us?”, they say. How will he assume the duty of leadership? “Allah has chosen him over you”, Allah chooses. In other words, people do not choose Hazrat Mahdi (as), “...and favored him greatly in knowledge and physical strength.” Allah created him as a knowledgeable person who is  wiser and stronger in physical strength. That is to say more robust, more astute. “Allah gives kingship to anyone He wills. Allah does not ask people to whom to give that kingship. Allah is All-Encompassing, All-Knowing.”

Surat al-Hijr, Verse 56

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

There are many people that despair of Allah’s mercy. So in the verse it is said that it is unlawful to despair of Allah’s mercy. It is unlawful to despair.

Surat al-Hijr, Verse 87

We have given you the Seven Oft-repeated* and the Magnificent Qur’an.

We draw attention to the 7 in the 87 here. For instance, in the year 2007 the economic crisis started. It will end in about 2014, insha’Allah.

Surat al-Haj, Verse 41

Those who, if We establish them firmly on the earth, will perform prayer and pay alms, and command what is right and forbid what is  wrong. The end result of all affairs is with Allah.

“...perform prayer and pay alms, and command what is right and forbid what is  wrong. The end result of all affairs is with Allah.” This is a verse that refers to Hazrat Mahdi (as). It explains the coming world sovereignty of Islam.

Surat az-Zariyat, Verse 23

By the Lord of heaven and earth, it is certainly the truth, just as you have speech.

By the Lord of heaven and earth, Allah swears. it is certainly the truth, just as you have speech. What does Allah promise us? The descent of Prophet Jesus (as) and the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (as). Al Dabbat al-Ard, the appearance of Duhan and the Day of Judgment. Allah says that they will absolutely happen.

Surah Muhammed, Verse 18

What are they awaiting but for the Hour  to come upon them suddenly? Its Signs have already come. What good will their Reminder be to them when it does arrive?

What are they awaiting but for the Hour  to come upon them suddenly? Its Signs have already come. The portents of the Day of Judgment. The appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (as). This is the first sign. He is the greatest portent of the Day of Judgment. Second; the appearance of Prophet Jesus (as), the appearance of the antichrist, Gog and Magog, and Al Dabbat al-Ard. What good will their Reminder be to them when it does arrive? Once the Day of Judgment comes, then it will be of no benefit but once they see the portents, people will have to understand it. The appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (as)  and the descent of Prophet Jesus (as).

Surat Al-Jin, Verse 24

So that when they see what they were promised, they will know who has less support and smaller numbers.

So that when they see what they were promised,       

they will know who has less support and smaller numbers.

In one hadith, it is stated that this verse refers to Hazrat Mahdi (as). In other words, once they see the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (as) and Prophet Jesus (as), they will consider them to be weak, because the followers of Hazrat Mahdi (as) are so few in number. They will say,  “They are only 300 people so what can they accomplish?” But Allah says that that they are few in number is not important. They will reign by the help of Allah. Allah says that the actual Might is Himself. Allah says that He will make Islam reign throughout the world although they are few in number.

Surat al-Maida, Verse 54

You who have faith! If any of you renounce your religion, Allah will bring forward a people whom He loves and who love Him, humble to the believers, fierce to the disbelievers, who strive in the Way of Allah and do not fear the blame of any censurer. That is the unbounded favor of Allah which He gives to whoever He wills. Allah is Boundless, All-Knowing.

...who strive in the Way of Allah and do not fear the blame of any censurer. People reproach others through the internet, radios, televisions, gossip and on Facebook. The followers of Hazrat Mahdi (as) do not fear from such people who do this. Allah says so. Allah says that He will make such a community appear.

That is the unbounded favor of Allah which He gives to whoever He wills. Allah is Boundless, All-Knowing.

 

Hadith:

Followers of Hazrat Mahdi (as); ...they will share the burden of the issues of the country. (Portents of the Day of Judgment, p.187)

Surat az-Zariyat, Verse 4

and those apportioning the command:

Allah says; those who share the issues, says Allah, and He swears. Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be very self- disciplined, he will be very strict and make good use of the division of labor.

Surat az-Zariyat, Verse 17-18.

The part of the night they spent asleep was small and they would seek forgiveness before the dawn.

The part of the night they spent asleep was small; because they communicate the message of Allah.

...and they would seek forgiveness before the dawn. In the early hours of the morning they pray to Allah and repent.
