The British deep state is a cruel and egoistic organization. This shadow state certainly has sycophants, sympathizers, servants, henchmen, and spies. These people are after Earthly ranks since one either looks for the Hereafter or for the things Antichrist promises. Almighty God says, "I shall give you the reward of this world and the Hereafter." The Antichrist says, "I shall give you the world, but you will spy and cringe and will be at my disposal, will assist and support me or those who support me; as I make you serve for me without your knowing." See, people have recently raised their consciousness, and they will keep it up. According to the hadith, the Antichrist tells those with him that they will find "a mountain of broth, cooked meat that never cools, a flowing river, a forest of bright green gardens, a mountain of smoke and fire." In other words, the Antichrist says, "wars might break out and there might be bloodshed but you can travel to England and settle in the countryside, wine and dine, and be at ease; or, you can go settle comfortably in the United States where there are evangelical Christians. We have sycophants in India, Pakistan and Turkey as well."

As per our own ascertainment, there are many sycophants of the British shadow state in Turkey. They are carrying out their activities publicly and openly. Now that their affairs are being deciphered and revealed, they are baffled. I mean something came over them; the fur flew. They should quit acting tactless and persecuting others. They consider Syria and Iraq as the holy land and they believe that only the People of the Book should settle in there. Well, you can still settle in there; no one is saying anything about that. But why do you choose to destroy these people? Let them live there along with you. Yet, they say, "There should be nobody that will settle in there." They say, "We want the area to be evacuated." They indeed murdered seventy or eighty percent of the people living there. Now, seventy to eighty percent of the population are gone. They say, "We will destroy the rest of them." Though this happens in the full glare of publicity, there is nobody that can see around it.



It is technically impossible to practice Zionism in the way that it is envisioned by some people. Indeed, there are some people who consider Zionism as a means to world domination. Think of it this way - there are certain small groups of people such as the Druze people; if we say that these people will dominate the world, given that they are only a handful of people, how can they dominate the world? There is no point belaboring upon an irrational philosophy. The Torah says, "Israel, the children of Israel, will dominate the world." That is, the Torah says, "A sapling from the progeny of the Israeli people will grow out, and God will be remembered everywhere." In this regard, there is a clear reference to the system of the Mahdi. This is explained extensively in my books. I mean this domination, namely the world domination of Israel, does not refer to Zionism. "A sapling from the progeny of the Israeli people will grow out and dominate the world." This sapling is actually Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), Moshiach. Indeed, the Torah says, "The sons of Jacob spiritually conquer Istanbul." It means that the Israelis, namely Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and some followers from the progeny of the Jewish people are the ones who are intended by the "sons of Jacob"; they will carry out an intellectual activity and will spiritually conquer Istanbul.



The struggle against the British shadow state should be performed in a very rational way. They may employ a number of strategies. First of all, they can distract attention: They may claim, "The United States is responsible for that," or expand the front line. That is to say, they may widen the structure of the shadow state to be struggled against. For instance, they may dispatch some people to places that you might never expect. They might drag the issues to Africa or other places so that they can overwhelm you and put you off track.  England and London should be the primary considerations in this regard. For instance, the British shadow state would not carry out massacres directly but rather they use others to carry out their dirty work. For instance, they orchestrated many massacres in South Africa many times. They do not carry out such massacres but have them carried out by others. They even provide weapons to others, yet they have others do that for them. For instance, they order these intermediaries saying "provide weapons to those," and they comply. In this regard, it would be a mistake to become obsessed with or to focus only on the Evangelicals.



There is nothing to save Turkey other than a modern understanding of Islam.  In other words, let me say that Turkey, without a modern understanding [of Islam], will fall from grace. This understanding should certainly be adopted as the state policy. The most critical issue in this regard is (to create) a modern Turkey. Indeed, there are many young people that write to me; the feelings of hatred towards Jewish people and a devastating bigotry are dominant in their messages. For instance, (going by the things they write to me)  they are totally opposed to music.  The young people who are at nightclubs in the evening write to me saying that they are totally opposed to music. I mean, this is what opens the door to bigotry. For instance, one might be wandering around in jeans, chewing gum but let me put it bluntly, once the mentality of ISIS or that of the Taliban or Al-Qaeda develops, such a person might easily stand up for that mentality. In other words, he would directly embrace that mentality. If he is forced to make a selection, he will stand up for them. If you tell him that there is no middle way and that he has to make a choice, he will take a position in favour of them. This is a grave danger. Such an understanding of Islam outlawing music cannot survive. An understanding of Islam in which women cannot dress as they wish and even young boys are treated as women will be ruined. See that these people (the radicals) have laboriously achieved this, the acceptance of such an understanding over the years.



How intelligent the deceased Ataturk was! I marvel at his intelligence. See, he talks about the British shadow state -in his book Nutuk (Oration): "In order to give rise to a war between brothers, Turks and Kurds, the British provoked Kurds to establish an independent Kurdistan under the auspices of Britain. In order to make this happen, they spent huge sums of money and resorted to all sorts of espionage." See, he says all sorts of espionage. "To this end, Noel, a British officer, made great effort in Diyarbakır for a very long time and resorted to all kinds of forgery and deception."  The members of the British shadow state are primarily engaged in fallacy and forgery. Do you see how wise these words of the deceased Ataturk are?  The British shadow state has always succeeded in this way, namely, by means of fallacy, forgery, hypocrisy, factiousness, and sneakiness. It is not possible to see through what is going on just by looking at their faces. They do all of it surreptitiously; if they want, they can pretend to take your side. However, they secretly maintain loyalty to the British shadow state. Unbelievable! In the end, they are generally murdered. The British shadow state wipes out these people, making it look like a suicide or something else. On the other hand, they are unfailingly loyal to them. This is an enchantment of the Antichrist. The hadiths also inform us that the Antichrist will cast a spell over humanity.



For instance, some people chant communist slogans such as, "God damn America, go home America." However, they do not utter a word about England. Though the primary force is actually the British shadow state, the world is not aware of this fact. The British shadow state dominates all the terrorist organizations including the leftist organizations. They only make people chant slogans against the United States and in Islamic countries against Israel, MOSSAD and the United States;  Muslims are not aware of the fact that they groan so bitterly because of the British shadow state. Surprisingly, they do not know that. They are directed instead to an unrelated target. They are making a huge mistake by heading for these false targets. For instance, the invasion of Iraq was directed by the British shadow state; however, the force behind it appears to be the United States. It was the British shadow state that provided the justification for the invasion. The Director of MI6 claimed in 2010 that Iran will build nuclear weapons in two years and people believed in that and came up with certain statements. The majority of their former prime ministers were at the disposal of the British shadow state. This issue was resolved upon their statements, and the United States agreed to intervene in the country. They do not know that the US Army consists of the sons of farmers, the sons of oilmen, the sons of farmers, and the sons of those engaged in animal husbandry; they are not even aware of what is going on. They waged a war there and then became mentally ill. Now, they commit suicide one by one. The British shadow state is a savage, cruel organization and, it is the British shadow state that leads them to commit suicide.


New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (17 January 2016)



Another characteristic of hypocrites is that they love to disturb Muslims. They try to do as much harm as possible: In other words, they try to harass and disturb Muslims with their words, with their annoying implications. Even the smallest possibility of harming a Muslims is very important for them.  However, every time they try to do harm to a Muslim, that Muslim acquires merit in the Sight of God while the hypocrites sink down a little bit more into damnation.  Step by step, they get closer to Hell. Every time they speak, their place in Hell gets deeper.  Every time they harass a Muslim, Hell's pull on them grows stronger and more and more troubles plague them in this life as well. For example, the first cell of a tumor receives the order to multiply from God. You act in hypocrisy but you are unable to order a cell around. It spreads over your body. God damns you. You consider yourself to be independent. You imagine that no one can possibly understand what you are actually saying, nor can anyone comprehend what you actually mean, yet you are just a poor creature. What do you think you are? If you don't eat or sleep, you will die. You simply are in need of everything you are given. You are miserable. What makes you think you are superior?

The members of the shadow state have a claim of being a sort of deity, they have a sense of insolence. They think they are above ordinary people. They read books no one reads, know things no one knows, aim to have a higher intelligence than other people, aim to be smarter than other people, meet with individuals no one can get in touch with, make plans that no one knows about, hatch sinister plots that people are unaware of. As a result, these immoral people become exhausted, miserable and restless. God damns them all. Step by step, they get closer to damnation. Believers, on the other hand, lead peaceful, serene lives.



"Those Bedouins who remained behind will say to you, ‘Our wealth and families kept us occupied'." (Surat al-Fath, 11) In other words, they make up excuses such as “My mother didn't let me, my father didn't let me, I had things to do, my friends didn't let me." Do you live for God's sake or for your friends' or your family's? If you live for God's sake, for the good pleasure of God, you must make your own decisions. I ask people, "Where is your family?" They answer, "Outside." I say, "Where do you see them?" They answer, "Inside my brain." How can an image inside your brain order you around and deter you from the path of Islam? Are you that weak -minded? "The image inside my brain didn't let me do it," they say. God tells you to "Go" but the image inside your brain says, "Don't." Why don't you abide by the command of God? Why do you follow the commands of the images inside your brain? They say, "It looks as if it is real." To look real does not make it real. It is just an illusion. Only God is the Absolute Real One.

I seek refuge in God from satan; "No, you thought that the Messenger and the believers were not going to return to their families."(Surat al-Fath, 12) In other words, they thought the believers would lose their jobs, their educations, their friends; they would never return to their homes as they would die, be severely injured or be assassinated. But even if you stay behind, you may die of cancer, die in a car accident or of a brain hemorrhage while Muslims lead very long lives. Or you may not die but you may lead miserable lives: You may literally suffer. So what is it that you get in return? Every moment you spend, you spend it in misery.


New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (11 December 2015)



When people do not make self-criticism, the lower-self causes them to become mentally ill and drives them insane. People should criticize themselves and they should let others criticize them as well. In this way, they become very reasonable, coherent and rational people. They recover from any mental disease, if any. They abandon their crazy and aggressive behaviors. Their inconsistency, their mania disappears and they stop tormenting themselves. Otherwise, for instance, I see that some young girls out in the streets are in tears almost every day. They live in tension every single day. They have normalized the act of crying. Someone says something about them or talks about them and they start to cry. They are extremely unhappy, nervous at all times. Criticize yourself and let others criticize you as well and that affliction would leave you alone. Live your life in peace. Become a normal and rational person. Why do you turn a blind eye to this opportunity?



God provides very beautiful, divine secrets that enable people to become rational in the Qur'an. For instance, when one devotes himself to God, this alone eliminates all kinds of indecencies and abnormalities. For instance, submitting to God and putting one's trust in Him prevents self-torment. That is to say, trusting God eliminates any kind of torture on one's body. Only if one is patient can he make friends with everyone. In other words, when one is patient, there will be nobody that has an animosity towards him or that he separated with. When one is loyal, he develops a personality appreciated by everyone. When one criticizes himself, he regains his mental stability. When one lets others criticize him, he becomes a coherent, decent person appreciated by everyone. These secrets are introduced by the Qur'an yet people overlook these secrets while reading the Qur'an; these secrets seem like any ordinary thing for them. However, they do not realize that when they do all of these, they will have a perfect mental stability. Many people do not know that. They think that this happens by itself, but as they fulfill those conditions, they regain mental stability. Otherwise, he would go insane and would not even notice that he is insane or that he is not normal.  God has a secret: For instance, when one becomes irrational and loses his sanity, he will not notice that he is not sane any more and he will not even realize when he regains his sanity. He will not comprehend that. It is just that he becomes a normal, rational, coherent, sane Muslim again.

Surat Al-Hashr, Verse:14

"They will not fight against you all together as a group except in fortified towns or behind high walls. Their hostility towards each other is intense. They are full of bravoda in each other's company. You consider them united but their hearts are scattered wide. That is because they are people who do not use their intellect. "

"They will not fight against you all together as a group except in fortified towns or behind high walls..." For instance, Mardin and Diyarbakır are such fortified towns... "... or behind high walls." They drill through the wall, point their barrels out of those holes; they point the barrels of their precision carbines out of those holes they drilled through the walls. "They will not fight against you all together..." God says that they will not come to close quarters with you. Do you see their perfidy? "Their hostility towards each other is intense." God says that they will fight one another. They killed 16,000 people in internal executions. "You consider them united but their hearts are scattered wide." They are unloving, anguished, hateful people. God says "That is because they are people who do not use their intellect." Look how God emphasizes the perverseness of the PKK.


New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (25 November 2015)



Our Prophet (saas) felt it when he would be receiving revelations. In the form of a heavy weight; he felt as if a heavy weight was put over him. Other companions realized this too when his skin started to fade or redden. Just as the revelation started, our Prophet (saas) closed his eyes. Then his companions also closed their eyes and did not look at our Prophet (saas). Usually, out of courtesy, our Prophet (saas) was covered with a muslin cloth. His face, his head was covered with a muslin cloth completely to his shoulders. The revelation continues, while he is in that state. It was clearly understood when the revelation was going on. Everyone there felt a pressure on them as well. When the revelation ended, they take off the muslin on our Prophet's (saas) face. After that he felt relieved and looked more like his true self. When the revelation came he was more in a half-conscious phase. In the beginning, our Prophet (saas) used to try and memorize by moving his tongue, but Almighty God said “ No more.” God said, "Do not move your tongue trying to hasten it. Its collection and recitation are Our affair." (Surat al-Qiyamah, Verses 16-17)  So God tells him to just listen. He received very long surahs and he memorized them all by heart, verse by verse. In the beginning our Prophet (saas) was anxious, wondering if he would forget them or not. That is because it is a great responsibility. He repeated them over and over not to forget them and that made him very tired. Then God told him not to do so and he didn't after that.  



Almighty God says, "God is encircling them from behind." (Surat Al-Buruj, 20) We can only see the front side of the screen, the rear cannot be seen, right? Only the front can be seen. Almighty God tells us that He is encircling us from behind and that He is watching us from there and that He sees and He hears all. He says that He is the One Who creates our speech. What is there in this reminder? “Had I liked it,” He says, “ I can pull you from behind. I am right behind you.” That is valid for everyone. God says, “I am right behind you, right at your back.” God sees from the front as well, from the front, from both sides and from the back; God sees from every angle and that is what is explained in specific detail here. Look; “You can only see what is in front of you but I can see you from your backs too,” says God.


New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (24 November 2015)



Our Prophet (saas) foretold that in the End Times, there will be conflicts in the Amik Valley. However, we wouldn’t say that such a conflict must take place in Amik. We wouldn’t say it, even though it is foretold in hadith. We can't say that according to the knowledge that we are bound with. But according to the hidden knowledge, the compass will turn in whichever direction Khidir (pbuh) puts down his staff. When that is the case, by the leave of God, there will be nothing left to do. Previously, in Reyhanlı, in the Amik Valley region, a bombing took place. What I see is that the conflicts in the region are being instigated. As far as I can see, they want such an event to occur. That event will take place no matter what eventually, God knows the truth, if our Prophet (saas) said so. But, insha’Allah, it may be a more narrow event rather than a wide-scale one, as it is said. Let’s think that way. Or let us assume that it, meaning the foretold conflict in the Amik Valley, may stay as it is right now, insha’Allah; that is because an event as big as this never happened before. Russia and Turkey faced off against one another for the first time (after almost a century). Actually, the Amik Valley is not a big one. It is a simple plain but the hadith refers to an event here. But it may be a local event in the normal course of events. The event they suggest is an event that would cause millions of people to fill the whole valley, which is not rational. But our Prophet (saas) says that an event will take place there. He says an event will occur. Maybe this will be the trigger or it may be a small- scale event.

"There will be peace between you and Banu Al-Asfar (Greeks)." So the accounts state that events will calm down in the beginning. "Then they break peace  (they broke the agreement) and will advance towards you with twelve thousand people in eighty legions." Twelve thousand is not much of a crowd. Our Prophet (saas) says that this will be in the Amik Valley, in the Amik region. Insha'Allah, may they not do such a mad thing. This is the portent of the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), one of the last portents. "A governor from my bloodline whose name is suitable to mine..." Our Prophet (saas) calls Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) "governor". "They will persecute the Mahdi." Meaning they will not appreciate his true value. They will act against him. "After they persecute the Mahdi, they will have a war with you in place called Amik. Muslims will continue to fight and then conquer Constantinople (Istanbul). Right about that time," he says, "... a voice will be heard saying, 'The Antichrist entered your houses and held your children captive'." I guess that refers to the PKK seizing people's children. You know they are currently  entering people's homes and seizing their children and the accounts state that this news will spread at that time. So it is understood that the PKK will be on a rampage.


New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (2 November 2015)



Our Prophet (saas) says that in the End Times there will be a country named Ameriq. The accounts also state; “It will connect fifty cities." That means fifty states. "Mahdi will land on the Ameriq region from above the clouds. Mahdi will have a light among the darkness. Like the moon and the stars." That is also very significant; as you know, the moon and a star are the symbols seen in the Turkish flag. 



New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (31 October, 2015)



Recounted from Ibn Sirin; They ask our Prophet (saas) if Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) would be superior than Abu Bakr and Omar. He tells them, "My son, he is superior than Abu Bakr and Omar".

They asked Hazrat Abu Bakr (ra): "It is said that he, Mahdi, will be superior than Abu Bakr and Omar, what do say you to that? and he answers them, "He will even be superior than some of the prophets." Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is a very significant person.


Our Prophet (saas) says, "I have good news to those who meets Qaim Mahdi, one of the people of my house, who is an ally to his allies," -in other words, his friends- "and who is an enemy to his enemies before my son Mahdi's appearance, while he is in disguise. Those are my friends, my beloved ones and they are the noblest of my people -people of Islam." He heralds them. Pay attention here, he says,  "I have good news for those who meet Qaim, who is an ally of his allies, who is against those that are against him. Those are my friends." In other words, "I am pleased with them and they are pleased with me," says Our Prophet (saas)


Bediuzzaman says that there will be a grand reform in Hijri 1506. That is probably the beginning of Gog and Magog. He tells of a second grand reform in 1543 and a third one in 1545. But this grand reform will be the last one and it will be dreadful. During this, God destroys the Earth.

Bediuzzaman says that some oppressed people, some uneducated communities, some "Manchurian and Mongolian tribes" will attack and leave the world in shambles, as has happened in history from time to time, such as the Hulagu sedition. He says, "They preserve their original characteristics." 

He says that just like  locusts that come in its season and leave after its season passes, these Manchurian and Mongolian tribes will come in the End Times, when it is convenient, with a grudge against all of humanity. Thus he says, "You will see them descend over the hills." Their invasion of the Earth is in question.

By that time, religion would not be practiced for a long time; maybe this will include China. He says that they will attack Europe, America, everywhere. The second grand reform is the counter-movement which will take place about Hijri 1543.  By 1545, the last grand reform will take place; he says that this will coincide with the last times of a grand community about Hijri 1506. In other words, 1506 is the last times of the community of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), when his disciples will be old and are only able to carry on with the task until 1506. 


New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (27 October, 2015)


The Prophet Jesus (pbuh) says: "My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you." That is because he is an example, a role model, in love. He has an enthusiastic love. So he says, "love each other as I have loved you."

He tells his disciples to take off their socks. He grabs a bowl, brings hot water and begins washing their feet. This surprises his disciples. And he says  "Take me as an example, be humble with each other, love and protect each other". This is why the Pope washes the feet of people. This is a commandment of the Holy Bible. Jesus (pbuh) did not do that out of the blue. He washed the feet of his disciples one by one, all of them. Look at the modesty an Ulu'l Azm Prophet (Prophet of Determination) shows. "No need to make it a matter of pride," he says.

Our Prophet (saas) tells us that "Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will read the uncorrupted chapters from Torah, Psalms and Gospel to the People of the Book".

"After that he (Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh))…. will recite the scriptures of the Taurat, Injeel and Zabur. The people of Taurat, Injeel and Zabur will say: Indeed, these are the scriptures of Prophet Nuh and Ibrahim and from which omissions and interpolations are made. By God, this is the complete Taurat, Injeel and Zabur, and it is better than whatever we used to recite so far. " Bihar al-Anwar Volume 51,52,53. This is a-thousand-year-old work. 51, 52 and 53.

"When Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) appears and comes forth", in other words when he becomes apparent, "he will discuss the issues with the Jewish people, taking the Torah as a basis." It says that he will tell them that he is right according to the Torah as well and he will discuss this with the Jews. "And he will give them the proof. As a result, a majority of the Jews will embrace Islam."

The Qur'an also points to this. But when will Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) discuss this? When he becomes apparent. He tells the Jews that it is fine to practice Torah, but shows them the parts that are corrupted and the parts that are true. He talks about these issues with the Rabbis and persuades them with proof.

He makes them accept the explicit provisions of Torah and abandon the false parts. The majority of them embrace Islam by then. What do they say? "La Ilaha Illa Allah Muhammad ar-Rasul Allah, Isa ar-Rasul Allah, Musa ar-Rasul Allah.". This means that they will also recognize the prophet Jesus (pbuh). But as a prophet, never as God or the son of God, may God forbid. So, the Christian world will also say "Jesus is the Messenger of God", insha'Allah.

Because this is the right way. In the Gospel, Jesus himself says "The Lord, our God is One. " How can you claim anything else? How can you call him a God – may God forbid? How can you declare him a deity? How can you claim that Jesus is God? He says, "I pray and beg to God and so should you". He says "God is One". Yet still, what do you claim? That Jesus is God (May God forbid). No way is that possible.


New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (26 October, 2015)



Our Prophet (saas), Ibn Abi Al-Hadid conveys in this way. Prophet (saas), when passing by a dancing group, commanded, "Continue doing this until Jews and Christians realize that there is freedom in our religion." They are dancing, having fun and our Prophet (saas) tells them to keep doing it. He doesn't say stop. (Najh al-Balagha, book 6, page 331.) He tells them to continue on until everyone realizes that there is freedom in our religion.


"The most important one," answered Jesus, "is this: 'Hear, O Israel," he addresses the people of Israel, ".. the Lord our God, the Lord is One."  (Mark 12:28) God is One, he says. This is from the Gospel. And then you are talking about the creed of the Trinity, do not do that! You are reading the Gospel as well. What kind of conscience is this? You are all adult people, grown people, sane people. He is speaking very clearly "Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One." God is One, he says. And what are you saying? You come up and say "There!" Why are you doing this? Why are you ruining generations? Why do you leave the young in suffering, in pain? The youth is in suffering. The people who used to come to religion in crowds in the past are now abandoning religion.

In the Qur'an, God says; "… and you have seen people entering God's religion in droves." Now because of the bigots, people are leaving God's religion in droves. With Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) they will enter religion in masses again. But of course that will a really fast flood. Those droves will take place close to the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). People will enter Islam in droves, in masses.

"Love the Lord, your God with all your heart…" See, not a part of your heart "…with all your heart and with all your life and with all your mind and with all your strength." This the love God expects. This right here is, the true commandment of God, uncorrupted. This is a commandment that God revealed to the Prophet Jesus (pbuh). This is true. (Mark 12:29-33)

But, of course, his disciples are conveying these but it can be seen that it is the true command of God. "Love the Lord, your God with all your heart, with all your life, with all your mind", meaning whatever your brain is capable of, to the end of your ability, to the end of your might. The most important one is this, he says. Look "This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' "  This here is the origin of Islam as it was at the time of the companions of our Prophet(saas). Look "love your neighbor as yourself." What do you buy for yourself? You buy a villa, buy one  for your neighbor too. You buy yourself a car. Isn't it clear? The passage reads,  ..."love as yourself." A car too, you will buy one for your neighbor too. You have found a job for yourself, you will find one for your brother. You buy furniture for your house, buy for your neighbor too. You got kebab delivered, food delivered, get some for your brother too. Just like yourself. The commandment is clear. This is not a covert commandment. If real Christianity was practiced it would become exactly like the Islamic community. It was exactly like this at the time of the Companions of our Prophet (saas). "Love your neighbor like yourself." Some people imagine that this is merely an advice. Actually this is commandment, the commandment of God.  "Second biggest commandment," Jesus says in the Gospel  "Love your neighbor like yourself." Your neighbor is cold in the street, are you cold? No? Then there is an abnormality. You didn't do it. Invite them to your house. The companions were doing exactly this, giving half of their house, half of their wealth. They loved their neighbors like they love themselves. The practice of Islam, the verses in the Qur'an are exactly the same. God says, "You are protective friends to one another." The expression in the Qur'an is different than that of the Gospel, but the meaning is the same. For example one says come from the right and the other says come from the left but in the end they both want you to come to the same spot.

"And so we know and rely on the love God has for us." Look, here the disciples say that they have seen the love God has for them in the Gospel and that they rely on that. "God is love." This is from the Gospels; "God is love. Whoever lives [for God's sake] in love lives in God... " (1 John 4:16)

"Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves... knows God.  Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love...  Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. " (1 John 4:7-11)

Whoever doesn't know how to love, doesn't know God. Because God is love. Love is living by the commandments of God. What does God say? Love your neighbor like you love yourself; this here is the command of God. God says love is living by the commandments of God.

So this is exactly what a Christian should do. God says "your neighbor", He does not discriminate. This is how it should be for Christians. Neighbor is the one who is next to you, by you, whomever he or she is. This is from the first letter from Saint Paul to Corinthians. These people made a great effort during those times. But how did it come to this? I am really  astonished. "You are the sons of God" a statement in the Torah dragged them along to a false deduction. That statement is made to signify  love. They tell children "God the Father will give you this or that" to make them love God, for instance. "You are the sons of God" is a delightful statement meant to make people love God. Almighty God gives you lots of blessings, lots of beauty, just to make you love Him. But it is not "Father" in the literal sense. God does not have a wife, nor does He need a woman. So He does not have a "child" in  a literal sense. God is the absolute One and Only.

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails." (1 Corinthians 13:4-8)

"Love is patient." What is patience necessary for? It is necessary for love. Do you see how the Gospel explains the commandments of Quran and vice versa. "Love is patient…" What does this mean? Love requires patience. "Love is kind." What is true love? True love is the love that is protective mixed with compassion and kindness. "It does not envy." If there is jealousy, there can be no love. For instance, some of the ladies have it. "I am very jealous" they say. If so, you will not be loved too. If you are jealous, then you are throwing the love away. Why do they get jealous? Because they want the love only for themselves. But when you are jealous, love goes away. But if you do not get jealous, love will come to you in abundance. They imagine that love will be divided. Love comes from God, so why would it be divided? Actually, you will be receiving much more of the love than that you are afraid of dividing. But if you get jealous, love will actually be divided. Your fear will come true. It will become divided so much so that you will only be left with one percent of it when you are jealous. But if you are not, then it will come back to you a thousand fold. "It does not boast." When you brag, boast, you will be seen like a madman; this is a repulsive and you won't be loved. "It is not proud."  When you boast or make it a point of pride, again you will become an unlovable person. What are you bragging about, why are you flaunting? You are doing it so you will be loved right? But it has an adverse effect and love will leave you. "It is not rude." If you are rude, love will leave you, but if you are kind, polite, love will find you. "It is not self-seeking." If a person is an egoist, love will instantly leave him; otherwise, love will return and it will return in abundance. "It is not easily angered." One can only get angry for God. But if the anger, the grudge is for unnecessary reasons, it is not acceptable because such an anger will take love away. But if it is felt for the good pleasure of God, then love would grow more and more. "It keeps no records of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth." Love cannot be found in lies, it is in everything that is honest and sincere. Fake love, fake behaviors, fake friendships do not bring love.  Real friendships, genuine love brings love. "It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres." Pain, hardships, poverty and everything. Love is patient in illness and suffering, it perseveres.  "Love never fails." Because it is the love of God; because it stems from God, Who has eternal power. Loves goes on after death, in the Hereafter, and it goes on forever.
