(Bediuzzaman - Letters; 370- 371)

Bediuzzaman says something that has very newly attracted my attention: “Eighty percent of the human beings are not people of inquiry and investigation.” They are not investigative he says, “... to attain the truth and recognize the truth as the truth.”  What does eighty percent mean? It means almost all of them. Only twenty percent of them can be named as people of inquiry and investigation.

Based on their good assumptions, it may be they accept what they hear from acceptable and reliable people by imitating the example."  Meaning they take acceptable and trustworthy people as role models  and take after them by imitating them. 

What is more they regard a powerful truth as weak in the hands of a weak person."  That, for instance, is an important point. We are talking about the hadiths of our Prophet (saas). But if these miracles we've been talking about were to be presented by the most influential media organs of the world, they would shake the world. "What is more they regard a powerful truth..." For instance, a great miracle of our Prophet (saas). "...as weak, in the hands of a weak person." So they say "These are not important." We are talking about the hadiths of our Prophet (saas) and say that they have been realized exactly as foretold by our Prophet (saas) but they regard it as something weak. ".. and if they were to see a trivial matter in the hands of a worthy person.." a trivial matter, for instance, something that one should not even take notice of, were to be held by a "worthy person.."  A worthy person or an important media organ, an important news agency were to cover that matter, "… they regard it as a worthy matter." They see it as an important matter, meaning they attach importance to that. What is meant here by a "Worthy person" is an important news source; the sources that shake the world when they announce something. 

"And based on this, in order to avoid depreciating the worth of the facts of faith and the Qur'an..." facts leading to faith and the miracles of the Qur'an, "... in the hands of a weak and worthless wretched person like myself, in the eyes of the general public, I would have to declare that someone is employing us without us knowing or willing."   Meaning Almighty God employs us, he says; "...and without us knowing, He makes us work on important matters." I am not even aware of it, but Almighty God makes me work, he says. 

"The proof we have is that, without us being aware or willing, we are granted the Help... " the Help of Almighty God "… and all sorts of benefits. If that is the case, we have to declare that help in a loud voice." We have to explain those blessings of Almighty God to everyone. 

 

MR. ADNAN OKTAR'S EXPLANATIONS OF HADITHS REGARDING HAZRAT MAHDI (PBUH)

 

"Without your Imam and Guide (Mahdi) what will your situation be when you hate each other? You will be intensely refined by then; you will be distinguished and eliminated. There will be famine. One will be a leader in the morning and then killed in the evening." (Awaited Mahdi, Allama Baqir Al-Majlisi, Biharul Anwar, Volume 13 (Old Edition)/ Volume 52-52-53 (New Edition)) 

That actually is something seen in the End Times. They make someone a leader and then kill him immediately. That has happened in Iran, in Lebanon and in many other places. This has happened in many places in the Arabic countries. One after the other; leaders being killed in a flash is something that coincides with the End Times. 

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

 

In Surat Al-Kahf, God mentions two children whose parents are Muslims. One of them is the dajjal (anti-christ). The verse states; "We feared that he would darken their days with excessive insolence and unbelief."  Look, this is an excessively insolent person in unbelief and he uses force. These are all characteristics of the anti-christ; insolence and unbelief. And that makes people worry and fear. "We feared" says Khidr (pbuh). But there is also the mention of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). A mention of a child with the temperament of the Mahdi: What is his specialty? He is pure and clean. That is his first characteristic; clean, pure both bodily and spiritually. And secondly he is benevolent. Thirdly he is compassionate. These are all the characteristics of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). 

There is a mention of a wall. Everything has been explained with symbols. Those who look carefully into the Qur'an will see all the secrets of the system of the Mahdi in the Qur'an. There is a wall.  And the Qur'an states that there is a treasure underneath that wall. The ark of the Prophet Solomon (pbuh) is underneath that wall. That is a wall somewhere. 

 

There are two orphans in the city. One of them is Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and the other is the Prophet Jesus Messiah (pbuh). Both of them are orphans: That is because the Prophet Jesus Messiah (pbuh) doesn't have a father anyway. And in the accounts it is stated that Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will lose his father when he is young. 

Look, the verse states; "underneath".  ".. There was a treasure underneath it." That is a treasure belonging to the Prophet Jesus Messiah (pbuh) and Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). "Their father was one of the righteous..." Who is their father? Our Prophet (saas). When will they find that Holy Ark and the holy relics? When they come of age. I mean, there is a time that God will make them live through and progress in good morality. And when the time comes, the verse state that they will; "... unearth their treasure as a mercy from your Lord." That means they will unearth their treasure themselves. I mean that treasure will not be found when they are not there looking. The treasure will be found during a search they will attend. They will witness the finding of that treasure. Both Jesus Messiah (pbuh) and Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will be among the searching group. 

"They continued until they boarded a boat.. " Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and Jesus Messiah (pbuh) together. And there is a boat where they are. They are at the Bosporus, there are boats all around. And there is something specifically stressed on. What is emphasized is that people will not be able to bear with what Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) does. They will not be able to bear with him. They will be surprised. They will have objections. That is intensely emphasized in the Qur'an. "He said, ‘Did I not tell you that you would not be able to bear with me?’" (Surat Al-Kahf; 75)

An important characteristic of Surat Al-Kahf, as you know, is that it has 110 verses. And it is the 18th Surah. 110X18=1980: It gives the date 1980. The appearance date of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).  

And in the 81st verse, there is the mention of the coming of a pure, compassionate child. 

(Surat Al-Kahf, 84)

"We gave him power and authority on the earth and granted him a way to everything."

"We gave him power and authority on the earth." It means up until then, there were some Powers in the world but none of them had the authority. None of the Powers in the world are sound and authorized. The authorized power will be in the time of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).  "... and granted him a way to everything."  We granted him ways to everything, We granted him all sorts of means, all sorts of technological means and all sorts of facileness. 

(Surat Al-Kahf, 90)

"Until he reached the rising of the sun and found it rising on a people to whom We had not given any shelter from it."   

In the 90th verse, the sun rises on a people. Insha'Allah, there might be a reference to A9 in this verse. That is because it presents beauty and knowledge to people. Of course, there are many meanings to it, but because we are a channel serving  the system of the Mahdi, there is also a sign in  that. 

(Surat Al-Kahf, 93)

"… Until he arrived between the two barriers where he found a people scarcely able to understand speech." The abjad calculation gives the year 2013. “...until he arrived between the two barriers.” For instance, Marmaray is a barrier to two seas. You name the dam which is made and which prevents water from passing by a barrier It stops the flow of water. There are two barriers; one to go, and one to come back. What is said in the verse? “...he arrived between the two barriers.” Meaning he reached the entrance. There are also signs in this. There are two barriers that protect from the sea. The access point where people enter and where people exit; one for going, one for returning. This means he reached the main gate. There is also a sign in this.

(Surat Al-Kahf, 94)  

"They said, ´Dhu´l-Qarnayn! Yajuj and Majuj are causing corruption in the land. Can we, therefore, pay tribute to you in return for your constructing a barrier between us and them?"

That means there is anarchy at that time. There is bloodshed all over the world, there is terror. That is a reference to everyone who terrorizes people and sheds blood. 

(Surat Al-Kahf, 91)  

"Our knowledge encompasses all that happened to him." 

Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will also have knowledge that encompasses all that happened. He will not get into needless details and get sucked in these details like some other scholars. He will encompass the essence of things; he will explain the wisdom behind it. He would thus be explaining everything in a short and concise manner. That will also be true for religion. He will also be explaining Islam sententiously with wisdom. Consequently, the ummah will not be suffocated with unnecessary details. That is because satan suffocated the ummah, the majority of the ummah, with unnecessary details. And the satan played a trick, a trick against Islam and that will be annihilated, insha'Allah. 

 

 

New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (23 November 2013)

 

WE NEED TO PRAY TO GOD AGAINST GETTING TOO USED TO WONDERS

Satan develops a sort of familiarity towards the miracles of our Prophet (saas). I mean a sense of seeing them as normal develops. Getting used to important facts and wonders is very dangerous. That is one of the points a Muslim should work on the most. For instance, one studies the structure of the cell and feels out of breath but an intense wave of familiarity at the back of his mind would constantly suck that knowledge. It constantly suppresses that amazing information.   Getting too used to wonderful incidents is a disaster. For instance, one hears about the miracles of our Prophet (saas), his eyes  fill with tears, he feels astonished and then familiarity swallows him in an instant. People have a tendency towards getting used to everything. One needs to resist that. 

Prophets never give way to such familiarity. For instance, that is a characteristic of the Prophet Jesus Messiah (pbuh). With a very sharp mind, he recognizes everything. When familiarity comes, it doesn’t have an impact on his mind. That familiarity doesn’t harm that knowledge, that fact: By familiarity I mean getting used to certain things and taking it in stride. One needs to pray to God to be protected against familiarity in that sense, saying, "My Lord, please protect me from getting too used to miraculous events. Make the impact of this wonderful knowledge rule over my heart and my soul. Protect me from getting too used to this valuable information which conduces my faith, and ruining it." 

Getting too used to certain things might sometimes be beneficial in one respect.  For instance, a person experiences a saddening incident in his own life and he submits himself to God. Some people do not feel such a submission but after a while they get used to it. By getting used to that fact, they no longer feel disturbed by that sorrow. Or something that would bother him might happen. Then one gets used to that and develops a resistance towards it. Getting used to wonderful information however is a disaster. One needs to be very careful about that. 

For instance, the kidneys recognize the atoms and molecules in the blood one by one. Atoms and molecules cannot be seen with microscopes, a person cannot see that. Cells do not have eyes, they do not have noses, they do not have hands, they do not have arms; they don’t have any of those. These are simply cells, cells of the kidney. Yet they look into the blood, recognize the materials that might be harmful to man and say “These are harmful, I am taking these out.” How about the beneficial ones? They say “These can remain.” Well my brother, there are hundreds, thousands of beneficial molecules and there are hundreds, thousands of useless ones. How are you able to differentiate between them? These cells recognize them the moment they arrive. And they say, “You can be beneficial for me, you can pass through. You are ammonia, you are no use for me, so I am discarding you.” “How about you? This is another molecule. You have no use for me. How about this one? That is beneficial, you can pass by.” That is an amazing thing. And these cells do that night and day even while we are sleeping, while we are walking, etc. They are patiently doing this cleansing, quietly, day and night. Now what is this? This alone is information that will be instrumental for a person to believe in God completely, in the perfect sense. But with familiarity, getting used to such information sinks into this, the mind would be distorted. The mind will be confused and go elsewhere. Familiarity sucks out that information and ruins it. 

Familiarity and getting used to things might be beneficial in one respect: That is a characteristic given to humans by God in order to protect them from being ruined by the fear of God.  That is because normally, one would  perish by the fear of God, may God forbid. One would die of it; I mean one would not be able to handle that fear. But through familiarity and getting used to it, God calms people. Through familiarity, this feeling would be washed away from people.  It enables people to be calmer. I mean, it is like a tranquilizer for people: Getting used to certain facts is like psychological tranquilizer. 

EXPLANATION OF THE HADITHS BY MR. ADNAN OKTAR 

Hazrat Ali (ra) says, “In the End Times, one of my sons from my line will appear. His complexion will be a white and red mixture. He will have a wide stomach, he will have big thighs, and his shoulders will be straight and broad. The sign on his back resembles  that of our Prophet (saas).” So he says that Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will also have a mole on his back just like our Prophet (saas).  “When he flies his flag, everywhere in between East and West will be illuminated and he will capture the minds of people.” He will capture the minds of people. And his flag will be the television screens.  That is because it is said that the characteristic of this flag is that it will illuminate everywhere in between East and West. How would a flag illuminating everywhere be possible? It will be a television, insha’Allah. And since it will be illuminating everywhere in between East and West, and this is a flag that is all around the world. And here in another account, it says that it will be in everyone’s house. And there is a flag that illuminates the houses. That means the word 'flag' is a symbol that describes the spirit of the system of the Mahdi, it may as well be a television channel. May be an internet website. That is such a reference in this. And the flying of the flag draws attention to that activity. I mean that will be a monitor as wide as a flag, and there is an activity in that. The accounts state that “...it will illuminate everywhere.” In that case, it is a radiant flag that will enter every house, that will be in every house and it will be a lively flag. This is how he described television. “And it will capture the minds of the servants.”  Meaning it will capture their consciences. It will communicate the message of religion. “And there will be no Muslim left whose heart will not be as strong as a piece of iron.” Their hearts will be so strengthened that they will be like iron.  “God gave Mahdi the strength of forty people. There will be no deceased whose heart and grave is not filled with this mentioned relief.” So the accounts state that the hearts of even the deceased will be relieved.

In the hadiths, our Prophet (saas) draws attention to the PKK 

Our Prophet (saas) described the End Times in great details. For instance look how he explains these events that will take place in Syria, the massacre in Syria. He says that in Syria, in Damascus, "More than a hundred thousand people will be annihilated." Our President Abdullah Gul says; "The losses in Syria has exceeded a hundred thousand people." Look, that's the same. Our Prophet (saas) gives a number. He says, "A hundred thousand people," and he says that "God creates this as a blessing for those who have faith.." -as they will be martyrs- "..and as a torment for those who do not have faith." "These incidents will escalate until it stops in Damascus. You will see riders coming with yellow banners, battered horses, battered clothes.'' Look, the flag of the PKK, the communists' flag is red on yellow. And their clothes are really battered. "There will be a formidable terror," says our Prophet (saas). And he explains that terror as; "This will be red death." Meaning as the result of a communist attack, Muslims will be martyred. Red is the name used globally for communists. Red Communists, reds, Red China, Red Army.  "Yellow banners" Their banner is yellow. "Riders with battered horses, battered clothes.."  Their clothes are worn indeed. "There will be a formidable terror, this will be red death," says our Prophet (saas). "Red death", so he draws attention to the massacre carried out by the communists. 

"Then you will see that a village of Damascus called Haresta will sink." We've shown this before anyway, Haresta has been wrecked down in Damascus.  "Later on the son of the liver eater."; who is the liver eater? Hafiz Al-Assad. Who is his son? Bashar Al-Assad.  Look; "his son," says our Prophet (saas), "the son of the liver eater." That is because Hafiz Al-Assad used to have the livers of women smashed up. He used to ruin people with bombs and weapons. "The son of the liver eater," is Bashar Al-Assad, "comes from the Yabis Valley in order to stay in Damascus mimbar." He presents himself as if he is a Muslim. As a matter of fact, he really goes and performs his prayers, he is always in mosques and he gives sermons to Muslims. "After that,  wait for the appearance of Mohammad Mahdi," says our Prophet (saas). Look, do you see this? Look at the details. 

Our Prophet (saas) says; "...two armies will get into a conflict." Right now Al Nusra and the PYD are in  conflict.   "Apart from a sign from God, this will not come to an end." They will be in a constant combat. Look, "two armies," our Prophet (saas) gives details. In between the PYD and Al-Nusra. If these people do not consider these details as important, then all sorts of disasters will not cease to take place, may God forbid. 

 

Explanations of hadiths related with Hazrat Mahdi by Mr. Adnan Oktar  

 “Mahdi is the one who stands in awe in the presence of the Glory of God,” says our Prophet (saas). Standing in awe.. “He is like an eagle opening his wings and flying down towards the earth bowing his head from the peaks of the skies,” he says for Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).  Mahdi is “.. like an eagle opening his wings and flying down towards the earth, bowing his head from the peaks of the skies..” That is the awe and humility he feels in the presence of Almighty God.  “God and His Glory manifests in his (Hazrat Mahdi’s (pbuh)) body and Hazrat Mahdi. “ Look he says something very important here, “...and Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) melts in the Presence of God.” (Al-Mahdiy-ul Maw’ud, v.1, pp 280 and 300)  The hadith explicitly explains an important secret of sufism, a crucial secret of the system of the Mahdi and states that Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will from time to time cease to exist as a material being and melt in the presence of God.  Our Prophet (saas) says, “He melts in the Presence of God”

 “Mahdi doesn’t feel afraid when death comes to him, he will not be shaken when death reaches him.”  That will be seen as well. “...he will not be shaken when death reaches him,” that is, insha’Allah, something his students will see in the future. “He will never retreat from the arena.” He continues until he wins. “He is experienced.” This is something Bediuzzaman also states, in The History of Life, he says that Hazrat Mahdi will be experienced in his characteristics. He is “Victorious,” he becomes victorious without fail. “He is victorious, he is lion hearted,” says our Prophet (saas) “He is lion hearted, he is sturdy, he is the pillar of his community, he is brave, he is God’s sword of knowledge, he is a leader, he collects everyone around him, he is brought up in a house that is the source of greatness and honor.”  Our Prophet (saas) praises his house in another account as well, the house he lives in is a known house. A well-known house. It is a house our Prophet (saas) drew attention to. There is a reference to that in the Qur’an as well. “His (Mahdi’s) greatness comes from the noblest greatness.”: Meaning from God. (Sheikh Mohammad, b. Ibrahim-i Nomani, Ghaybat-i Nomani, p.251)  

 

“Mahdi is the one that comes to rescue and that responds to calls of help. God will send him to come to the rescue of people in the world. “(Al-Mahdiyyul Mawud)” People are screaming out for help and Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) goes to their rescue. 

“Our Prophet (saas) says; “...you will see that the portents in the heavens will evidently appear but that people are not afraid of these,” in the time of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). 147th Hadith in Al-Qafi. “You will see that the portents in the heavens will evidently appear.” They will be seen. “... but that people are not afraid of these.”  For instance a meteorite happened, you’ve seen that meteors have landed on earth. They call those “Wonders of the skies..” My brother, people are dying, buildings are collapsing, all the windows are broken there. “We have witnessed the wonders of the skies, they were very interesting,” they say. Actually, the goal of Almighty God is to make people fear God and make them turn towards God. 

As related by Ayyup b.Noah: 

“ There is no imam from us, Ahl-al Bayt (including the Mahdi), that people do not write about, that people do not point out, that people do not ask questions to and that assasination attempts are not made about.” (Book of Faith and Disbelief/ Usul-u Qafi (Al-Usul Min Al-Qafi) /Al-Quleyni, Volume 1. P.502) 

Yes, Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will face all these as well. There will be assasination attempts, and people will point him out as well. We will see all these, insha’Allah.  

 

New statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (20 November 2013)

 

CELLS BECOME HAPPY WITH FAITH

That is a blessing from God on Muslims. It is an amazing thing; faith causes physical changes in the face. There is something in this, something extraordinary. It is literally perceptible. That means that faith is recognized by the cells. The body recognizes faith. The body and cells love faith. So the cells are made happy by faith. So the cells really begin to live. They live healthily. They do not fall ill. They do not become ill in any way. They make that felt. You can tell when you look from the outside. The wisdom of God.

Explanation of the hadiths by Mr. Adnan Oktar

"When our Qaim [the Mahdi] appears, you must make haste to join him, even if you have to crawl. By the leave of God, it is as if I see oaths of allegiance being sworn to him in a new agreement between the Rock and the Pillar."

Masha’Allah, masha’Allah. Our Prophet (saas) sees it in a state between waking and sleep. "I see it," he says. He sees an image. It appears like a vision. Almighty God shows it, partly through revelation and partly as an image.

From Muhammed bin Ali bin Shah, from Ahmed bin Hasan, from Ahmed bin Halid Halidi, from Muhammed bin Ahmed bin Salih Tamimi Muhammed bin Hatim Kattan from, Hammad bin Amr from, Imam Jafr Sadik; it is related that Rasulullah (saas) told Ali the Commander of the Faithful:

"O Ali, you should know that at the end of time (in the End Times), their (the followers of the Mahdi) faith will be magnificent and their certainty will be very great. There will be no prophet among them, but instead they will believe through black on white (in written things/books)." (The Awaited Mahdi, Allame Muhammed Baqir el-Majlisi, Biharul Anwar, Vol. 13 (Old edition)/ Vol. 51-52-53 (new edition))

"They will be very sure of themselves," he says, through the power of faith. "There will be no prophet among them (the followers of the Mahdi), but instead they will obey black on white (written things/books)."  They will read and obey books. It is written in black on white, in black ink on paper. In other words, "They will obey the works, the books of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh)."

In Ghaybat Tusi: Fadıl bin Şazan relates from Ömer bin Aslam Bajali, from Muhammad bin Sinan, from Ebul Jarud, from Muhammed bin Başar Hamadani, from Muhammad bin Hanefiye. To Muhammad bin Hanefiye, one of the children of Hazrat Ali. You know my lineage; I also am from the line of Muhammed bin Hanefiye, insha’Allah.

"The rule of the Beni this or the Beni that will continue for a certain time. " Our Prophet (saas) is saying that the rule of the Beni Hashim will continue in various forms." He does not give names, however. When they attain peace and security they will think that their kingdoms will never end. They will think their rule and government will never be brought down. At the time, a divine command will come and no king will remain in power. God is saying "I will tear down all regimes." "I will tear down all regimes, be they in Egypt, or Syria or wherever," He is saying. Almighty God reveals: 

"…Then, when the earth is at its loveliest and takes on its fairest guise and its people think they have it under their control," just when they are happy, "Our command comes upon it by night or day and We reduce it to dried-out stubble, as though it had not been flourishing just the day before!" God says he will destroy such regimes and states and governments. "In this way We make Our Signs clear for people who reflect." (Surah Yunus, 24)

'Our command comes upon it by night or day," that refers to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). That is God's command, insha’Allah. "Therefore, when hunger and poverty rise and people start to reject one another, you must expect the divine commander [the Mahdi] to come at any moment, day or night." (The Awaited Mahdi, Allame Muhammed Baqir el-Majlisi, Biharul Anwar, Vol. 13 (Old edition)/ Vol. 51-52-53 (New edition))

The verse also says that – "by night or day." "He will either appear at night or else by day." "Our command comes upon it," he says, insha’Allah. "as though it had not been flourishing just the day before!" People who grow wealthy. "We reduce it to dried-out stubble." God is saying He will destroy all systems. '"In this way We make Our Signs clear for people who reflect."

Provenance: it is related from from Abu Hamza Thumali, from Abu Halid Kabuli, from Ali bin Hussein (pbuh):

"O Abu Halid, there will be a lengthy period before the appearance of the 12th heir to the Messenger of God (saas). O Abu Halid, those who live with the imam [the Mahdi] before his coming shall await his coming. People will await the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). They will be superior to those who lived at all other times. In other words, he is saying, "They will be superior to everyone who has lived from the time of Hazrat Adam (pbuh) until the day of Reckoning." Almighty God will give them (the followers of the Mahdi) such understanding and foresight that…, in other words, the non-appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), his remaining in secret and his presence will have the same effective status. "They will serve as if he were present," he says. We are serving now as if he were present. Aren’t we? We have no problem of issue with his not being visible. His being out of sight will be the same as his presence for them. They will serve as if he were present. They will be sincere people. So speaks our Prophet (saas). They will spread the religion of God in an explicit and sensible manner. Openly, explicitly. Not in secret. 'And in a sensible manner'. They will spread it honestly. "Then he said "Waiting for victory … he [the Mahdi] is himself a great victory."  (The Awaited Mahdi, Allame Muhammed Baqir al-Majlisi, Biharul Anwar, Vol. 13 (Old edition)/ Vol. 51-52-53 (New edition))

"He is himself a great victory," says our Prophet (saas).

"Before the coming of this Owner of Time (the Mahdi), it will be as if those who remain loyal to their faith are rubbing their hands on thorny branches." In other words, "they will serve in constant pain and suffering," he is saying. (The Awaited Mahdi, Allame Muhammed Baqir al-Majlisi, Biharul Anwar, Vol. 13 (old edition)/ Vol. 51-52-53 (New edition))

There is a hadith that reads "Woe to the Arab at the start of the 60s." Toward the beginning of the 60s. In the 1950s in other words. When the communists came to power. Those are fiercest times of the Ba’athists. The most shameful time, when Muslims were slaughtered. "At the start of the 60s." Around then. In the 1950s, ‘60s and ‘70s. "Woe to the Arab." The dajjal is nicknamed "The shaver." In the sense of shaving bits off the faith, The destroyer of the faith.

REMARKS ON THE HADITHS BY MR. ADNAN OKTAR

In Ghaybat Tusi, it is related by Imam Muhammed Baqir (ra) that one of the grandchildren of our Prophet (saas),said; Ameli Sadik related from Talikani, and he from Jaludi, from Hisham bin Jafr, from Hammad, from Abdul bin Suleyman that he said: ''Almighty God will tell Jesus the messiah: Jesus, I shall raise you into the skies and send you back to earth in the last age of the world (the End Times). You will witness the extraordinary events, experiences by that Ummah and help him (the Mahdi) in his struggle against the dajjal.” Who really wages the struggle? Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). What does Jesus Messiah(pbuh) do? He helps him in that struggle. That is the task God has given him.

"I will send you at the time of prayer so that you may pray with them, because they (the Mahdi and his followers) are people whom the divine mercy has reached.” God says; "I will make you acquainted with them at the time of prayer, while they are praying, so you can pray together.

It is related from Ibn Isa, from Ibni Asbat, that Imam Ali Riza (pbuh) said: "Do you think the Imam Qaim (the Mahdi) will appear before the coming of the sufyan? Not so. The Imam Qaim will appear after the coming of the sufyan.”  First the sufyan will appear, and then Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). “The coming of the sufyan and Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) are inevitable,” he says. He says that both will appear. The place where the sufyan will appear is given as Damascus. Hafez Assad. His son is now persisting with the same strife and turmoil.

"Almighty God will send the Qaim, Muhammed the Mahdi, the clement one in the presence of men, together with his followers." In other words, God does not send the Mahdi alone. He also sends his followers. People imagine that Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) alone will be sent. No, his 300 followers will also be sent. God will manifest him together with his 313 followers. He will have them meet people in the streets. But they will not be random people. They will all have come together. "When they appear, people will pity and weep for them, thinking they will soon be destroyed by the hands of their foes." "It is very sad for these young people,” they will say. They say the same thing of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). "The system of the dajjal will ruin them. It will have them imprisoned and killed. It will defame and ruin them. They cannot succeed,” they will say. “…thinking they will soon be destroyed by the hands of their foes…” They will think they cannot possibly survive.  "… people will pity and weep for them, thinking they will soon be destroyed."

 

"Almighty God will conquer the east and west of the world for them (the Mahdi and his followers)," figuratively. "Know that they are true believers." Look, he is not saying that they are just "believers" but that they are "real believers". Because God will bestow sovereignty over this world on those with true faith. Being in charge of politics or facilities or lots of people has nothing to do with this. For example, the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) was alone. God made him the Sultan of the region. Dhu’lQarnayn was one man. But he soon came to rule the world. Solomon (pbuh) was also alone, and he soon came to rule the world. Because they were true believers. They had real faith. That is why it is also related in the Torah. God says He will bestow global sovereignty on 10 people, if they have faith.

"They are true believers. Know that the best of efforts are those made in the End Times." Our Prophet (saas) says, “the best of efforts are those made in the End Times.” What time is he referring to? The times of all the world. That is the best time, he says. The End Times. Because that is when most merit is earned. 

"O Jabr! Wait until these signs I tell you are manifested. O Jabr! In that year, new disputes will appear in the West. The first place devastated will be the lands of Damascus."

Look, do you see the details? “The lands of Damascus will be devastated.” That is Syria. That devastation has now happened. Everywhere is in ruins in Syria. What is the exact explanation of this hadith? Our Prophet (saas) sees the scene. He says what he sees. Time ceases to exist, and he sees. The lands of Damascus appear before his eyes. Or else Gabriel tells him about these, and he tells us about these in that way.

"Corruption will break out when thousands of people are surrounded by equipment and everyone is divided into groups. People will be destroyed. Then, the awaited Qaim Imam, the Mahdi, will stand, and there will be no child like him in terms of honor and virtue."

Masha’Allah. He is the beloved child of our Prophet (saas). '' there will be no child like him in terms of honor and virtue,' he says. The Mahdi (saas) is the greatest guide there has ever been. In the words of the Prophet (saas), he is the last and the greatest guide. ''when thousands of people are surrounded by equipment and everyone is divided into groups.” What are they doing in Syria now? They are surrounded by equipment, meaning bullets and shells and machine guns. And they are divided into groups. There are almost 1000 factions among them. ''Corruption will break out…” Look. There is war and conflict and they are all fighting one another. “People will be destroyed…” Destroyed here means being killed, injured, being left hungry and thirsty and generally wretched. Then the awaited imam Mahdi (pbuh), the descendant of the Prophet (saas) will appear. "there will be no child like him in terms of honor and virtue." Our Prophet (saas) explicitly said this 1400 years ago. It also appears in the Torah in the same form. He is the greatest spiritual guide there has ever come, insha’Allah.

"The Mahdi will be victorious over human beings and djinn. And he will leave nowhere unsown. How happy those who live to see the time of the Mahdi, who join him and see those days."

“The Mahdi will be victorious over human beings and djinn.” How will he be victorious over human beings? Through faith and godliness. How will he be victorious over the djinn? Through knowledge and godliness. ''And he will leave nowhere unsown.” I am in the vanguard of the Mahdi, and when I see somewhere unsown, as you know, I just have to sow it. Even if it is a very small place, I want to plant a fruit tree or a flower. People are given that training of the Mahdi (pbuh) by their nature. So if even I have this, as one of the vanguards and a follower of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), it shows how scrupulous Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will be, and it is impossible not to grasp how he will leave nowhere uncultivated and how everywhere will flourish, insha’Allah. 

"How happy those who live to see the time of the Mahdi, who join him and see those days." Living to see his days is a great joy, but the merit from joining him is incomparably greater. That is a separate matter, and is constantly praised by our Prophet (saas) in the hadiths. He tells the Companions, "They will earn 50 times more merit than every one of you." The Companions are astonished. “O Rasulullah, we are at your side, and such difficulties befall us. Why is that?” “The End Times are very difficult,” says our Prophet (saas). We see all kinds of turmoil, 1001 different philosophies, 1001 perverse beliefs being described to the world via the internet, radio and television. The system of the Mahdi will strive against that with a handful of people, with the few means at its disposal. So the merit earned will of course be very great. 

“The Qaim, the Mahdi, one of the grandchildren of Hazrat Ali (pbuh), will make the world an entirely different place.” The Mahdi (pbuh) will give the world a system in which there is a maximum of freedom and liberty, in which joy is widespread, in which there is complete security and in which nobody fears anyone else, but God. 

Our Prophet (saas) says there will be treasure beneath the Kaaba. That is not yet known. Who knows what will emerge? There will be searches under the Kaaba in the time of the Mahdi (pbuh). We will find knowledge dating back 10,000 or 15,000 or 20,000 years beneath the Kaaba. We will find remains dating back to that time. We will see that people then believed in the one God. This is all important evidence. 

Another comet will appear in the days ahead. A very large and significant comet. A noteworthy portent will thus have come about. 

“It is the Qaim (the Mahdi) who most resembles Jesus the Messiah in terms of form, character and nobility.”

Yes, Jesus the messiah will have gray eyes, and Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will have green eyes. He resembles him like that. Both have small noses. Jesus the Messiah has a small face, a noble face. That appears in the hadiths. But Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is very broad in stature. Jesus the Messiah is not like that. He has a thin waist. In one sense, the word messiah means thin waist. He is also of medium height. Jesus the Messiah has long, thin fingers. But our Prophet (saas) says he is freckled, even his nose. He is freckled right down to his feet. He has a sharp expression. Jesus the messiah attracts attention in that regard. He is extremely clever and intelligent. 

“He will follow in the path of the Prophet (saas). He will never be mistaken.” People will criticize him. “You are completely wrong. You are acting wrongly. You are on the wrong path.” But he will be right. “Because there is an angel he cannot see who corrects him.” There is always an angel by his side. Even if it looks like he is making a mistake; the angel will go into action and not let him. He causes him to do the right thing. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) “will carry a sick man on his back.” He will take an interest in everything to do with the sick. It is hard to carry someone on one’s back. It means he will help people who are seriously ill. “He will help the weak,” materially and psychologically. “He will be hospitable.” He will love guests and invite them over all the time.  “He will help those who maintain the truth.” He will help those who preach Islam and abide by the Qur’an. “He will do what he says.” Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will keep his promises. He will never deviate from what he says. “He will say what he knows.” He will speak truly and honestly. He will not conceal what he knows. He will explain matters through his books and CDs. “God will give him such strength that he will eliminate all wickedness overnight.” Everyone will stop being wicked, by the leave of God, that very night. He will eliminate wickedness and wicked people through his knowledge. “He will reinforce and improve Islam.” He will strengthen them.  “He will make Islam valuable again after it has become worthless.” People used to be ashamed to admit they were Muslims, and Islamophobia was widespread. But people will then be proud of being Muslims. “He will bring Islam back to life after it has died.” People talk about Islam, but it is divided into various sects and fragmented and smothered in nonsense. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will free Muslims from all that.

 

New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (14 November 2013)

 

Explanation of the hadiths by Mr. Adnan Oktar 

It has been related from Ali ibn Ahmed Ubeydullah bin Musa, Alevi Ahmed Bin Huseyin, Ahmed bin Hilal, Abdur Rahman bin Ebu Necran and Fuyezl bin Eyyup that Suadir Sairafi stated the following: "I've heard Abu Abdullah Imam Sadiq  (as) say the following: "The Master of this issue (Mohammed Mahdi) has resemblance to Prophet Joseph." He has similarities with the Prophet Joseph (pbuh). That is something stated many times in the hadiths. And in the Qur'an - in Surah Yusuf - the system of the Mahdi is explained in great details in a covert manner. 

"The brothers of the Prophet Joseph were very intelligent and smart people, they went to Joseph and spoke to him and even though they are his brothers, they didn't recognize him until he introduced himself." Right, now even though the people of Mohammad are all Muslims, even though they are all knowledgeable, they will not recognize Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) just like his brothers did not recognize the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) back then;  that is what the verses of the Qur'an refer to. Even though they are intelligent, even though they have good concentration, as a wonder from God, as a miracle, even though Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will be openly among them, God says that their insights and perception will be clouded and many people will not be able to see. Most of them will not be able to recognize Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). This is what is explained in the story of the Prophet Joseph (pbuh), that is what is meant. 

"They only realized who he is after he said; I am Joseph." That is also what the Qur'an says. They realize that he is Joseph only after he said, "I am Joseph" or else they are not able to recognize him, even up close. "Based on this foundation, why does this ummah suffering in such commotion deny that Almighty God, Who is Omnipotent, sometimes hides His Sign (The sign of Mahdi) from them." God is the One Who conceals Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh): But some people say, "There is no such thing, we would have spotted him instantly if he were around."  Actually God will conceal him. Just like He concealed the Prophet Joseph (pbuh), He will conceal Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and it will not be possible for them to spot him. 

"Joseph was a ruler in Egypt and the distance in between his father (Jacob (pbuh)) and him was not longer than  18 days' traveling. Had Almighty God willed so, He would have make his place known to his father." That is because both of them are Prophets and the accounts state that God would have made him known if He willed so. "So how is it possible for this ummah to deny that God can create what He has previously created for Joseph, also for His Sign (The Sign of Mahdi)? 

"Your Master (Mohammad Mahdi) whose rights have been usurped, who has been suppressed, will come." Look, "...whose rights have been usurped, who has been suppressed." What will be the characteristic of Mohammad Mahdi? His rights will be usurped, he will be suppressed. Actually that is why he is the Mahdi.  That is one of the reasons why he is the Mahdi; he will suffer a lot, he will be suppressed greatly. "Your Master (Mohammad Mahdi) whose rights have been usurped, who has been suppressed will come and join them, he will wander around their markets and walk on their carpets" Now that is highly meaningful. There were very few carpets at the time of our Prophet (saas). How can you walk on carpets back then? They were very rare. There were very few, small carpets. There were not that many carpets to walk on. They were all very small. There were not that many carpets, even in our Prophet's house and the ones he had were very small ones. However, nowadays even markets, almost all buildings and even here now there are wall -to- wall carpets. In houses, in the corridors, there are carpets. "Yet they will not be able to recognize him." As a miracle from God they will not be able to recognize Hazrat Mahdi. In the verse, God says they "...recognize him as they recognize their own sons." Even though he is upfront, "...they will not be able to recognize him." Bediuzzaman says that as well. He says, "People will not be able to recognize him when he appears. He may only be recognized through the light of faith." Also for Jesus Messiah, Bediuzzaman says, "His close, educated elite students might recognize him through the light of faith."

"Just like Almighty God lets Joseph introduce himself.." Almighty God inspires Joseph, He tells him to say; "I am Joseph" and they then recognize him. "... until He lets him (Mahdi) to introduce himself, this will continue like this." That means Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will step forward and talk about the portents of the system of the Mahdi at length. In a roundabout way, people would recognize Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) because he will introduce the system of the Mahdi, or else they wouldn't be able to recognize him. That means Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will be the one who will explain the system of the Mahdi in the best manner. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will be the one who will explain the system of the dajjal in the best manner as well. He will be the one who will explain the End Times in the best manner. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will also be the one who will explain the facts leading to faith and the miracles of the Qur'an in the best manner.

Book of Ghaybat , Imam Mahdi- Twelfth Imam- Section II, Translator Sayyid Athar. Our brothers and sisters can find these hadiths from these books. 

Related from Abdulwahit bin Abdullah, Ahmet bin Muhammed bin Rabbah, Muhammed bin Isa, from the father of Hasan Bin Ali Battani, and he related from  Mufezzel that Ebu Abdullah Imam-ı Sadiq (pbuh) said the following; "Imam Mahdi, who will be commissioned with this mission, will have a house which will be known as Bayt al-Hamd (The house from where thanks are sent to God)''  He will have a known, recognized house in which thanks will be sent to God, one in which God's name is praised and that house is known as Bayt al-Hamd. The house Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) lives in is a well-known house, our Prophet (saas) knows about that house. I mean that is a house specifically created in destiny, it is not any random house. It is a protected, secure house. It has been created specifically in destiny.  And our Prophet (saas) gave that house a name; "...the house in which thanks are given to God", he calls it; "Bayt al-Hamd" and our Prophet (saas) says this by means of revelation. He learned that from Gabriel, and Gabriel learned it from God Himself.  The name of the house is "Bayt al-Hamd." The house in which people constantly say; "Insha'Allah, Masha'Allah, Alhamdulillah."

"There will be a candle which will burn until the day the sword of the Messenger of God will come out." And there is an emphasis on a candle. Look, there is a name which defines that house, a name that our Prophet (saas) stated by means of revelation. And there will be a candle. Until when will this candle  be there, it says? Until he (Mahdi) appears with the sword of our Prophet (saas). Where is the sword? Here in Istanbul, it is in Topkapı.  "There will be a burning candle until the day he will appear with the sword of the Messenger of God." And he calls the house "Bayt al-Hamd" because this was foretold through revelation, there is a sign in it as well, one that a man of understanding would recognize.

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

 

Surat Al-Anfal, Verse 62

"If they intend to deceive you, God is enough for you. It is He Who supported you with His help and with the Muslims." 

"If they intend to deceive you, God is enough for you." That means; when Muslims have a trick played on them, when people intend to deceive them, God says; "I am the One Who creates them all anyway." "God is enough for you. It is He who supported you with His help and with the Muslims. "

 

Surat Al-Anfal, Verse 74

"Those who have faith and have made hegira (from oppression) and strived in the Way of God and those who have given refuge and help, they are the true Muslims. They will have forgiveness and generous provision."

"Those who have faith and have made hegira and strived in the Way of God and those who have given refuge and help, they are the true Muslims."  That means there is a Muslim and then there is a true Muslim. God takes these true Muslims as His basis. Their saying "I am a Muslim" is not enough. What is required to be a true Muslim? They have to have faith, they have to flee from oppression if necessary. For instance, if they are living among persecutors, if they are living among tyrants, if people around them do not make mention of God, if they are persecuting them, if they are dragging them into evil things, Muslims would separate  from them. They leave. They strive in the Way of God, they work in the Way of God. They communicate religion, they preach the matters of religion, they help people and explain beauties. And there are people who help harboring those who are striving in the Way of God; they are opening their houses for them and helping them financially, sustaining support for their food and clothes. They are supporting the believers materially and spiritually. Those who give refuge and help, support them in every aspect, those are the real Muslims. "They will have forgiveness and generous provision." Almighty God says that He will forgive their sins and give them a generous provision both in this world and in the Hereafter. He says that He will not leave them in a difficult position. He says that He will give them abundance in this world as well and that He will give them the necessary means in their struggle.  So God says, "You do not need to say 'How can I distribute books, how can I give food to those people in need? How can I ensure their accommodation? How am I going to give refuge to them?' during your struggle on My Way." God says, "I will be the Guarantor. If you strive in the Way of God, if you work on this path, I am your Guarantor. But you just need to sincerely strive in the way of God. Communicate the message of religion. I will give you all your needs. And you will be pleased both in this world and in the Hereafter." God says that there will be a generous provision, not just provision. That means God says that He will give them a good, high quality life. That is because the word "provision" has a broad meaning. It means all sorts of goodness, all sorts of beauties.  

 

New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (8 November 2013)

 

IN THE HADITHS OF OUR PROPHET (SAAS) THERE ARE REFERENCES TO MARMARAY

Look at what our Prophet (saas) draws attention to in his hadiths? First of all our Prophet (saas) says that "...it will be in Istanbul." Secondly he says "it will connect two shores." So he says that it will be a passage in the Bosphorus. Our Prophet (saas) says that it will be "steep". He says "...the road is very steep." Meaning, it is not a level road. And he says that "...this road enters right into the city." They go directly into the city. He drew attention to this. In the hadiths, our Prophet (saas) says it will be opened with the mention of God's Name, with takbirs, with prayers. He says that water will be kept away from this road. He says water will be kept away from this passage. Actually it is more than 60 meters away. The hadiths mention a new road opening. Our Prophet (saas) says, "A way is opened". He talks about the opening of a road that did not exist before. We understand from the hadiths that a road like a tunnel will be opened. Our Prophet (saas) says that the people will be using this road. He says that they will go to the other side by passing through a dry road. He says that it will pass from under the sea, meaning it will be under the sea. He says that there will be flags everywhere during this opening; he says that there will be flags on both sides of the road that is opened.

Our Prophet (saas) says that there will be mosques around that place at the time. It means that there will be mosques on that newly opened road and there will be new mosques. And he also says that there will be bastions in that location that is opened. Meaning there will be bastions near that road that will be opened, and he says that there will be mosques as well.

The hadiths also state that in those days, antichrist will kill children and women in Damascus and that a gruesome massacre will take place in those days. Now, that is an amazing miracle. These points are mentioned in the hadiths in all details. When we bring them all together, we see a very clear picture. These matters are all explained in the hadiths in a scattered fashion but when we collect them together we come across an amazing miracle.

 

Explanations of the verses from Surat Al-Ahzab and Surah Al-Imran by Mr. Adnan Oktar

 

Surat Al-Ahzab, Verse 7

"When We made a covenant with all the Prophets — with you and with Noah and Abraham and Moses and Jesus son of Maryam — We made a binding covenant with them."

 

"When We made a covenant with all the Prophets..." Look this is directly said to our Prophet, the verse addresses our Prophet (saas); "... with you and with Noah, and Abraham and Moses and Jesus, the son of Mary- We made a binding covenant with them."

So there is also a Messenger that our Prophet (saas) will be helping. God has made a covenant with our Prophet (saas). I mean, why should our Prophet (saas) make a covenant if there is no Messenger that he will be helping? A Mahdi, a guide will come and our Prophet (saas) will help him. How will he help? With his hadiths, with his miracles. He will describe him saying, "...this is how he will look, that is how he will appear" and when all those are realized, this will be the wonder of the Mahdi, a miracle of our Prophet (saas). That is an amazing help. Our Prophet's (saas) help to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) through his hadiths will be the greatest spiritual weapon Hazrat Mahdi has after the Qur'an. So a binding covenant is made with the Prophet Jesus Messiah as well. Prophet Jesus Messiah (pbuh) has not yet helped anyone. What does our Prophet (saas) say? "Jesus Messiah will be the vizier of the Mahdi." The verse will be realized exactly in this respect, insha'Allah.

 

Surah Al-Imran, Verse 101

"How can you be an unbeliever, when God's Signs are recited to you and the Messenger is there among you? Whoever holds fast to God has been guided to a straight path. "

 

".. when God's Signs are recited to you" These are the verses of the Qur'an, not the superstitions, not that made-up nonsense. "... when God's Signs are recited to you" You would never come across any other judgment in the Qur'an, they are all the Signs of God, they all attract attention to the Qur'an. Hundreds of verses all lead people towards the Qur'an; they never draw attention to superstitions. In fact they sometimes draw attention to superstitions by criticizing them, by saying that they are corrupt and that they are a scourge upon the people. And the verse explains that those who abide by those superstitions will go to Hell, that they will be thrown into Hell by God.

Almighty God says, " How can you be an unbeliever, when God's Signs are recited to you and the Messenger is there among you?" The Messenger mentioned here is our Prophet (saas). Almighty God says, "How can you be an unbeliever?" How can you abide by superstitions? "Whoever holds fast to God has been guided to a straight path." What is this straight path? The Qur'an. If one holds fast to the Qur'an.. Holding fast to the Qur'an means holding fast to God. "Uhret-ul Vusqa, Hablullah il-Metin." The Firmest Handhold. "Those who submit themselves completely to God and do good have grasped the Firmest Handhold. The end result of all affairs is with God." The right path: This is the right path that is referred to in Surat Al-Fatiha. The right path of God, the straight path.

The reason for all the scourges in the Islamic world is that they have turned away from that right path and gone into crooked ways. They have come across some trouble in every crooked way they followed and they still are coming across such troubles in every crooked way.

 

Surat Al-Imran, Verse 102

You who have faith! Fear God with the fear due to Him and do not die except as Muslims.

 

"You who have faith, fear God with the fear due to Him" And follow the Qur'an, says God. "... and do not die except as Muslims." On Islam, as Muslims, meaning not on any other faith, any other sect, any other way. Only as Muslims. So God says, "Only die as Muslims abiding by the Qur'an." A Muslim only abiding by the Qur'an.. There is a great threat in this, one that people should be careful about. God does not say, "As a follower of a sect." God tells us to die only as Muslims who abide by Islam based purely on the Qur'an.

 

Surat Al-Imran, Verse 103

Hold fast to the rope of God all together, and do not separate. Remember God's blessing to you when you were enemies and He joined your hearts together so that you became brothers by His blessing. You were on the very brink of a pit of the Fire and He rescued you from it. In this way God makes His Signs clear to you, so that hopefully you will be guided.

 

"Hold fast to the rope of God all together." What is the rope of God? "Uhretul vuska Habbullahul metin." God's Firmest Handhold, inseverable rope; the Qur'an. "... do not split up." Do not be separated into sects, religious orders or communities and do not pick on each other, do not oppose each other. "Remember God's blessing to you when you were enemies." You were picking on each other, says God. "... and He joined your hearts together so that you became brothers by His blessing." As the Islamic Ummah, as pure Muslims. "You were on the very brink of a pit of the Fire and He rescued you from it." At the moment the Islamic world is in a pit of Fire. They have been thrown into that pit. That is what the verse explains. The great majority of the Islamic World has fallen into this pit of Fire, only a small portion of it is saved from that pit right now. "He," Almighty God, "rescued you from it." And Mahdi (pbuh) will rescue Muslims from this pit of Fire by holding tight to the Qur'an. What does God say? This is the unseverable rope of God, the right path. There is a constant reference to the Qur'an. "In this way God makes His Signs clear to you so that hopefully you will be guided." God does not mention the superstitions they inflicted upon the Muslim world, God refers to the Signs, the verses. And God says, "I am explaining to you the Signs, the verses of the Qur'an." If their superstitions had any value in the Sight of God, God would have mentioned it as well, but He only refers to the Signs, to the verses of the Qur'an.

 

Surat Al-Imran, Verse 104

"Let there be a community among you who call to the good, and enjoin the right, and forbid the wrong. They are the ones who have success."

 

"Let there be a community among you who call to the good…" That is a verse which predominantly refers to the Imam Mahdi (pbuh) and his community. "They are the ones who have success." What kind of a success is this? This is the salvation of the whole world.

 

Surat Al-Imran: Verse 105

"Do not be like those who split up and differed after the Clear Signs came to them. They will have a terrible punishment"

 

"...after Clear Signs came to them." Which Signs? These people refer to superstitions; the Qur'an explains what the Clear Signs are. The Qur'an refers to an unseverable rope of God, to a right path. In the part God says "... after Clear Signs came to them," the Clear Signs are the verses of the Qur'an. "Do not be like those who split up and differed..." The Muslim world is split up right now, they are all scattered around. "Do not be like those who split up and differed..." But some people come up and say, "Being in conflict and differing is a blessing, it is wisdom and a beauty." They claim that our Prophet (saas) said that there is a blessing in the differences and disputes of the ummah. But God says "...do not be like those who split up and differed." These people are in disputes and claim that there is a blessing in those disputes: God says that it is unlawful, He says that it is wrong and trouble. But they claim that there is goodness in it, that it is very good. They claim that there is goodness in the disputes and differences of the ummah. "There is disaster in the disputes, conflicts of the ummah"; that is the true version of the hadith. They have erased the word disaster and inserted "blessing" instead. Where is the blessing in that? The Islamic World is shattered into pieces. It can only be a blessing if you abide by the Qur'an. If you attempt to split up the Qur'an, how could that be a blessing? They are four different sects and the lawful and unlawful acts by those four sects are all different; these are four different religions. God says, "Do not be like those who split up and differed after the Clear Signs came to them. They will have a terrible punishment." You all believe in God. God threatens them with a terrible punishment and some people keep saying, "No, that is not true, there is a blessing in it." Look, God does not say that there is a blessing, He says that there is a terrible punishment. God says that their "... faces are blackened, " and that "...they became unbelievers after having had faith." First they come to believe, they say "Alhamdulillah, I am a Muslim." And that is very nice. They say, "La Ilaha Illa Allah Muhammad Ar-Rasul Allah" [There is no God but Allah and Mohammad is His Messenger." And then you ask, "What is your religion?" And they respond by telling you which sect they are from. Well, are you not responsible for abiding by the Qur'an? Yet you say, "I abide by this sect." Where do you see something like abiding by a sect in the Qur'an? God only talks about abiding by the Qur'an, so where did you get that idea of abiding by a sect?

 

Surah Al-Imran, Verse 108

"These are God's Signs which We recite to you with truth. And God means no injustice to any of His creatures..."

 

"These are God's Signs which We recite to you with truth." There is no reference to those superstitions they have invented; the Qur'an always stresses the Signs of God, the verses of God. "God desires no injustice for any of His creatures." People desire injustice and God gives them scourges. Look at Syria, there is a bloodbath. How many different sects, how many different religious orders, how many different communities are there? Thousands.: There are thousands of different sects in Syria right now, thousands of them. Only the dissidents are composed of more than a thousand different groups. There are endless numbers of sects, communities and religious orders; they are all split up. They all are against one another.

 

Surah Al- Imran, Verse 110  

" You are the best nation ever to be produced before mankind. You enjoin the right, forbid the wrong and have faith in God. If the People of the Book were to have faith, it would be better for them. Some of them are Muslims but most of them are deviators."

 

"You are the best nation ever to be produced before mankind." Who are those people? Mahdi (pbuh) and his community: Insha'allah, these are Muslims. "You enjoin the right, forbid the wrong" in compliance with the Qur'an. "You have faith in God." That is a strong faith. "If the People of the Book were to have faith, it would be better for them." God says it would be better for them if the People of the Book, meaning Christians and Jews, were to have faith. "Some of them are Muslims." God says this; so God does not say that none of them have faith, He says; "Some of them are Muslims but most of them are deviators." Most of them are deviators, and that is actually the case. This also holds true for the Muslim world and for them as well.

 

 

Surah Al-Imran, Verse 113  

"They are not all the same. There is a community among the People of the Book who are upright. They recite God's Signs throughout the night, and they prostrate."

 

"They are not all the same. There is a community among the People of the Book who are upright..." A community among the People of the Book, among Christians and Jews. "They recite God's Signs throughout the night and they prostrate." The night time; that is a time of prayer for them. They perform their prayers standing and then prostrate reading the Signs of God.

Of course, this verse also refers to the students of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh). There are verses that refer to the community of the Mahdi but this one refers to the People of the Book, to the students of Jesus Messiah. "They recite God's Signs throughout the night and they prostrate." These are the Mohammedan Christians, Mohammedan Jews meaning Jews and Christians that follow Mohammed.

 

Surah Al-Imran; Verse 114

"They have faith in God and the Last Day, and enjoin the right and forbid the wrong, and compete in doing good. They are among the righteous."

 

God says; "They have faith in God and the Last Day, and enjoin the right and forbid the wrong, and compete in doing good. They are among the righteous." These people are among the People of the Book. In the Qur'an, God praises this attitude and says, "They have faith in God and the Last Day, and enjoin the right and forbid the wrong, and compete in doing good. They are among the righteous." God says that they are among the righteous ones and He says, "They are not all the same," regarding the People of the Book.

Explanations of verses from Surah Furqan and Surat Al-Kahf by Mr. Adnan Oktar

 

Surah Furqan, Verse 30 

"The Messenger says, 'My Lord, my people treat this Qur'an as something to be ignored'." 

That is a verse which explains the affliction that happens in the End Times. All Muslims should keep this verse in their minds every single day. That is a verse which explains the reason for the scourges that are cast upon the Muslim world. This explains the reason behind the troubles Muslims are suffering from. One single verse and it explains everything completely. Our Prophet (saas) makes a complaint: Our Prophet (saas) has only one complaint and no other. This has been stated with marked importance in the Qur'an because it is a great incident, because it is a grave disaster, because it is a grave affliction lasting for centuries, because it is the main reason ruining the Islamic world, the Qur'an defines this as very important, as the sole complaint of our Prophet (saas). "The Messenger says, 'My Lord, my people.. " everyone who lived in that period, everyone around our Prophet (saas) back then. ".. treat this Qur´an as something to be ignored'."  That means there is a reference to the End Times here, because in the time of our Prophet, as you well know, the Qur'an was not treated as something to be ignored. There was complete obedience to the Qur'an and the Qur'an was lived by in the most complete sense. But as a miracle our Prophet (saas) explains the grave disaster that will take place after his time. He says, "My Lord, my people.. " meaning Arabs, Muslims; we are all the people of our Prophet (saas) and we are the ones who are subjects to him.  This is the reason of the disaster in Egypt. The reason for all those troubles in Iraq, in Syria, in Afghanistan and all around is the people of our Prophet (saas) treating the Qur'an as something to be ignored. Our Prophet (saas) foretells of this  grave disaster which will take place in the End Times back in his time through revelation.  God knows the truth; this refers to the End Times along with his own period. 

 

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse 56

We only send the Messengers to bring good news and to give warning. Those who are unbelievers use fallacious arguments to deny the truth. They make a mockery of My Signs and also of the warning they were given.

 

''We only send the Messengers to bring good news and to give warning." They bring good news. They bring the good news of the Islamic Union, they bring the good news of Jesus Messiah (pbuh), they bring the good news of  Heaven. And they are also warning people.  ''Those who are unbelievers use fallacious arguments to deny the truth." What are fallacious arguments? Invalid information. Darwinists, materialists are trying to do this day and night. How do they do this?  They are using fallacious arguments to deny the truth.  They give money, they give means, they hire halls, they open universities, they open schools. They strive and give a struggle in this way.  "They make a mockery of My Signs." The verses of the Qur'an .. "...and also of the warning they were given," says God. Log in and have a look at the internet, you will see that they are making a mockery of these things. Look, that is why God says ;  

 

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse 57

 

Who could do greater wrong than someone who is reminded of the Signs of his Lord and then turns away from them, forgetting all that he has done before? We have placed covers on their hearts, preventing them from understanding it, and heaviness in their ears. Though you call them to guidance, they will nonetheless never be guided.

 

'' We have placed covers on their hearts, preventing them from understanding it.. " Then people ask, "Why do these people not understand?" Actually God says, "That is how I created them to be.”  That is the Secret Knowledge (Ilm Al-Ladun). "... and heaviness in their ears. Though you call them to guidance, they will nonetheless never be guided.'' That holds true for all eternity. What does all eternity mean? God says, "I have created them just like this." That is the meaning of infinity. God says, "This is how they are created," says God. That doesn't change even if a trillion or two trillion years pass by.   God says, "That is how it will be for all eternity." That is highly significant, their being like that for all eternity. The Qur'an also refers to how cruel the End Times will be. That is because Surat Al-Kahf refers to the End Times. 

 

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse 59  

Those cities: We destroyed them when they did wrong and fixed a promised time for their destruction.

 

''Those cities: We destroyed them when they did wrong and fixed a promised time for their destruction." Look now;  Egypt is devastated, Afghanistan is devastated, Iraq is devastated, Libya is devastated. "Those cities: We destroyed them when they did wrong" The rulers are doing wrong; some people are doing wrong. And God says; "... we destroyed them and fixed a promised time for their destruction." That is why before the destruction a meeting will be held with Hazrat Khidr's (pbuh) participation, and destruction comes after this. 

 

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse 61 

But when they reached their (the two seas) meeting-place, they forgot their fish which quickly burrowed its way into the sea.

 

"But when they reached their meeting place.." the number two is mentioned all the time. "When they reached their meeting place.." The abjad calculation of this part of the verse gives the year 1984, the first operating years of the system of the Mahdi. ".. they forgot their fish which quickly burrowed its way into the sea." There is a current in the sea. Normally there should be no visible current in the sea; there are waves in the sea. But the Qur'an draws attention to the current in the Bosphorus. "...their (the two seas) meeting place." That is one reference to Istanbul with a mention of the Bosphorus and also there is the reference to a current and this is the second reference.

 

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse 63 

He said, ´Do you see what has happened? When we went to find shelter at the rock, I forgot the fish. No one made me forget to remember it except satan. It found its way into the sea in an amazing way.´

"He said, ´Do you see what has happened? When we went to find shelter at the rock, I forgot the fish. No one made me forget to remember it except satan." That means that satan has such an influence on forgetfulness. Who lives in a rocky place? Whose residence will be on a rocky ground? That is a whole other issue. The Qur'an drew attention to this as well. "It found its way into the sea in an amazing way." That means the fish opens a way in the sea. Look,"a way": It opens its own way. It is also very meaningful that it draws attention to a main road in the sea. Actually fish do not need a road as they can go anywhere. But here there is a reference to a special place. "Its own way.." It goes through this way inside the sea.  That is also a reference to the End Times, for those who understand. Everything is explained in an alluded-to manner in the Qur'an. 

 

Explanations of an hadith by Mr. Adnan Oktar

 

"When the Qaim, Mahdi (pbuh) appears, those who think themselves as the followers of the Mahdi will turn away from him. Those who remained outside religion until then, would come to believe the Mahdi (pbuh)..”

 

That is really amazing. It means that Mahdi will not have followers among the radicals. Atheists will come and become the students of the Mahdi. Christians will come and become the students of the Mahdi (pbuh) or those who know nothing about religion will come and become the students of the Mahdi. That is how it will be. I mean his students will be from among the people. They are not coming from a radical background or they are not readily religious people. And of course there are genuinely devout, good people among the religious people; we are considering all of them free from this.  

 

New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (2 November 2013)

 

One would never  tire of examining the Artistry of God 

 

One might follow his lower-self from time to time. That might happen, it is not something that has never been seen in people. The Qur'an talks about that anyway. A Muslim would repent, and increase his determination; he would read fact leading to faith and the miracles of the Qur'an. He would think about them and reflect on them, so he would better himself.

Pray to God and say, "My Lord, increase my faith. Increase my love for You." Do not be too lazy, bored or tired while learning something. That is very important. For instance, people study the cells, the chromosomes, vacuoles and cytoplasm. They need to study it carefully without ever becoming tired of it. That is because God created it all for us to enjoy and see the artistry in it. 

One would never  tire of examining the Artistry of God. You need to study that art with love. Just like one studies a flower with love, just like one studies a cat, or a beautiful child with love and just like one feels love for them; cells should be examined with love as well because that is the Artistry of God. We need to see the details in it because the cell is a living being as well; it also has eyes and ears.  It has a beauty of its own. We need to look at the rich details in God's creation and be amazed by it. Love would then increase even further. When love for God increases, so would fear of God. When fear of God increases, so would one's submission to God. When one's submission to God increases, he would become a person who is never anxious. His mind would be at ease, he would feel relieved. And he would feel a merriment, a relief and an ease,  insha'Allah.  

 

New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (25 October 2013)

 

Mahdi (pbuh)'s body will take the form of light from time to time and leave the material world. 

 

"There is a slowness, a laggardness in his tongue. When he speaks slowly and laggardly, he pats on his left knee with his right hand.” That means there is a sort of choked up feeling in his speech; Mahdi (pbuh) might be going through a state of spiritual ecstasy during that time. From time to time, he might perhaps leave the material state of mind and when he pats his left knee with his right hand for instance, he might regain that feeling of having a material substance and then continue to speak. Such patting might make one come back to himself and make him feel his material existence. That means his body takes the form of light from time to time.  Or he might, perhaps, be leaving the material world. That is what I understand. 

 

HADITHS RELATED WITH HAZRAT MAHDI (PBUH)  

In his hadiths, our Prophet (saas) says; "...the sea will be divided into two for the Mahdi and he will easily go through that path." That statement refers to the Marmaray Project. That is because with this project the sea will be divided into two. People will be passing by a dry path underneath the ground. They will not be on the sea like a flat avenue. They will be passing through a path underneath the sea. 

"Mahdi will plant a dried cane into the dry soil and it will instantly become green and give leaves.” That is also mentioned in the Torah. The Torah refers to it as a "cane" and says that it will be "planted into the soil" and it will "become green". 

Evil ones will lose their influence and they will perish. There will be no individual left hostile to the Ahl Al-Bayt [People of the House]. That means there will be no one left who would talk ill about Hazrat Aisha (ra) or about Hazrat Omar (ra) because the religious sects will be cancelled, everyone will approach the People of the House with love.  "The word of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will be loved deeply among people." God will extinguish the blind dissension by means of Mahdi (pbuh). The blind dissension is the dissension that is going on in the world. What does the Islamic world making havoc with each other mean? It is blind dissension, a dead end dissension. A blind, sightless dissension. Our Prophet (saas) does not call it merely a dissension but he calls it a blind dissension. That is highly meaningful; there really is a blind dilemma at the moment, there is a blind dissension. "Safety and tranquility will prevail on the earth." There will be no anarchy, no terror, no explosions, no outbursts, no molotov cocktails, no bombings, nothing. Safety and tranquility will prevail on earth. Everyone will be peaceful. 

"The earth will be filled with justice instead of persecution and torture." There will be no persecution and no torture. Mahdi (pbuh) will abolish all deep states. "He will serve out everything equally within the scales of the truth and justice." Socialists , communists are talking about social life, social justice: Actually they have learnt that from the system of the Mahdi. That is about a thousand year old book. Marx wrote it about a hundred years ago. Yet our Prophet (saas) said this over 1,000 years ago. Do you see the concept of social justice? He says "...he will serve out everything equally within the scales of the truth and justice. He will distribute all the goods between Muslims." He divides everything equally. "And thus just like the dwellers of the earth and sky being pleased with him, the birds in the sky, the wild animals in the jungles, the fish in the seas will be content with him as well.” Mahdi will love fish very much as well, he will love birds, he will love the wild animals a lot. He will love cats and dogs, all animals, insha'Allah. Animals will know him. They will love the Mahdi (pbuh) very much. "There will be no individual left from the people of Mohammad (saas) that would not be content with him." Everyone, Alewites, Sunnis, Bektashis, Wahabbis, all of them will be content with him. As a matter of fact, the hadiths state that town criers will be made to cry out asking if there is anyone in need and that people will respond, "We have no need  of anything."
