EXPLANATIONS OF HADITHS REGARDING THE END TIMES AND THE MAHDI

 

ALLAH WILL STRIKE FEAR INTO THE HEARTS OF THE ENEMIES OF HAZRAT MAHDI.

Imam Baqir says, “Imam Mahdi will be assisted by God striking fear in the heart of the enemies.” (Kemalu’d-din, volume.1, bab.32, h.16, page.603) 

Somehow they will fear Hazrat Mahdi.

 

OUR PROPHET (SAAS) SAYS HAZRAT MAHDI WILL KNOW ALL SCIENCES.

Our Prophet (saas) says, “You should acknowledge that, Mahdi shall be the heir of all sciences and know all the sciences.” (Necmu’s-Sagib, p.193)

 

THE FOLLOWERS OF HAZRAT MAHDI ARE VERY DILIGENT.

While describing the Imam Mahdi and his associates, our Prophet (saas) said, “They shall be very diligent and hard-working in obeying their Imam (Mahdi).” (Yawvmu al-Halas, p.223)

 

HAZRAT MAHDI AND HIS FOLLOWERS GLORIFY GOD ON THEIR VEHICLES.

The followers of the Mahdi glorify God on their mounts. (Bihar-al Anwar, volume 52).

In other words, they constantly glorify Allah in their vehicles.

 

THE FOLLOWERS OF HAZRAT MAHDI PROTECT HIM AT THE RISK OF THEIR LIVES.

Imam Sadıq says, “Followers of the Mahdi turn round him like mouths and protect him at the risk of their lives.” (Bihar al-Anwar, volume 52).

In other words, his followers will protect him at all costs. Insha'Allah, I would become a follower of the Mahdi.

 

HAZRAT MAHDI AND HIS FOLLOWERS PRAY TO BECOME MARTYRS.

The Mahdi and his followers desire to become martyrs for God (they pray). (Bihar al-Anwar, volume 52, page 308).

Open and look; they desire martyrdom from God, they pray to become martyrs.

 

IF HAZRAT MAHDI AND HIS FOLLOWERS WANT, THEY CAN UPROOT A MOUNTAIN FROM ITS PLACE.

Imam Ali described them as the following:  “They are like the lions coming out of their dens; if they want, they can uproot a mountain from its place.” (Yawmu al-Halas, p.223)

 

HAZRAT MAHDI AND HIS FOLLOWERS DO NOT LIKE TO GLORY IN SACRIFICING THEIR LIVES FOR GOD.

The Mahdi and his followers are not the ones pleading abjectly to God for their patience and endurance. They would not like to glory in sacrificing their lives to God. (Yawmu’l Halas, page 224)

They do not have such an inappropriate  style saying, “O God, please see how we are having difficulties and suffering a lot of pain.”

 

HAZRAT MAHDI AND HIS FOLLOWERS ARE IN HARMONY WITH EACH OTHER.

Imam Hazrat Ali says, “The hearts of the followers of the Mahdi would be together and in harmony with each other.” (Yawmu al-Halas, p.223)

 

IT IS ONE OF THE PORTENTS OF THE APPEARANCE OF THE MAHDI THAT PEOPLE WOULD NOT FIND A PLACE TO FIND SHELTER AND ESCAPE FROM THE OPPRESSION. IT IS ONE OF THE PORTENTS OF THE APPEARANCE OF THE MAHDI .

Believers in the time of Hazrat Mahdi would not be able to find shelter from evils of tyranny and dissensions. (Iqdud Durar, p.73)

You see these events.

 

SUFYAN IS THE MOST NEFAIROUS PERSON EVER.

Imam Sadiq says, “...when you see the Sufyan, you will have seen the worst person ever” (Kamal-Al-Deen, volume.2, bab.57, h.10, page.557).

In other words, it is the opposite system that Hazrat Mahdi is fighting against.

 

BEFORE THE APPEARANCE OF THE MAHDI, SOME IGNORANT PEOPLE WOULD SAY, “GOD WOULD NOT NEED HAZRAT MAHDI”

Esbag bin Nebate says that Hazrat Ali said the followings while talking about the Mahdi: Before the appearance of him (the Mahdi), ignorant people would say, “God would not need the Mahdi”. (Kamal-Al-Deen, v.1, p.302)

In other words, God does not need the Mahdi.

 

DESPITE HIS ADVANCED AGE MAHDI WILL APPEAR AS A YOUNG MAN.

“By his omnipotence, Almighty God will extend the life of Mahdi, and then make Mahdi appear younger than forty.” (Kamal-Al-Deen, v.1, p. 305)

In other words, despite his advanced age, he would look like he is in his forties. For example, he may be 60 or 70 years old. Otherwise, I do not know. We will know when we see him.

 

HAZRAT MAHDI WOULD DIRECT THOUGHTS TO THE QURAN.

When personal thoughts become incompatible with the Qur'an, Mahdi would direct them to the Qur'an and cause the Qur'an to prevail in  society.   (Nahc al-Belaga, Sermon, 138).

IN A HADITH, THE PROPHET POINTS OUT ABDULLAH OCALAN BY MENTIONING THE NAME OF ABDULLAH AND MENTIONING A  BLOODTHIRSTY MATERIALIST ORGANIZATION WHICH WILL APPEAR NEAR THE EUPHRATES.

Qa'b narrates from the Prophet, "At the time of the appearance of the Mahdi (the End Times), an army will congregate beyond Damascus (Shaam) towns and around the Euphrates. They fight for the goods." So, they are materialists. They fight for this world, for goods, for the lands, and not for God, because in the case of others, they always fought for God. But these fight for goods. Our Prophet (saas) says that they are materialists.

"Seven out of every nine people will be killed." So our Prophet (saas) says that it is a bloody organization.

"Following the clamorous destruction and fear in the month of Ramadan ..." As you know, 30 people were killed in Nigeria on the 23rd of June 2015, when a bomb exploded and 146 people were killed in Kobane on the 25th of June, 2015. For the first time it occurred in Kobane in the month of Ramadan. A bomb exploded in the Imam Sadiq Mosque in Kuwait, 24 people (died) in the month of Ramadan. In Nigeria, 64 people (died) in explosions on the 17th of July 2015;100 people died and 170 people were wounded in a bomb explosion in Iraq on the 17th of July 2015. This is only a part of the story. After these bombings, explosions and violence. 

"Three flags will be separated," says the Prophet. Within this team, in this organization. One in Iraq and one in Turkey. For example, the one in Turkey is the PKK; its branch in Iraq is different, and the branch in Syria is different. These are the active ones. They (the other branch) can't  move freely in Iran.

 “They will attack with three flags” he says. Each of them will want to take over the civil administration for themselves.

So our Prophet (saas) says that each one of them will be an individual leader with the intention of being on the forefront.

"But there will a person named Abdullah among them." He says the name of their main leader. He clearly says Abdullah Ocalan's name. The Prophet describes the future events in the country where the Mahdi will be from.

ANOTHER PORTENT OF THE APPEARANCE OF THE MAHDI HAS TAKEN PLACE.

THERE IS A PORTENT IN THE HADITH POINTING TO THE KILLING BY BURNING OF JORDANIAN PILOT MUAZ BY ISIL.

ISIL brought down a Jordanian plane on December 24th, 2014. It (ISIL) took Jordanian pilot Muaz el-Kasasibe prisoner. On the third of February, 2015 the pilot was executed by burning. As a result of this event, Jordan's King Abdullah interrupted his visit to the US and decided to return to Jordan. This burned pilot was from the Kasasibe family, which is one of the most prominent families of  Jordan and was a member of the founding Barasi tribe. Muaz al-Kesasibe's father is a professor, and his uncle is a Major General in the Jordanian Army. Therefore, the capture of the young pilot became a very important issue in the Jordanian Army, and it shook the whole of Jordan. As you know, ISIL recorded this burning event.

The Prophet says;

(Bihar-ul-Anwar, page 51, volume 116): " One of the portents of the appearance of Mahdi, who is one of my sons, is the burning of an important person from Abbasid's (Hashemites) Army between Jalawla and Hanekin." This young man (the pilot) comes from that lineage, a young man coming from the Abbasids.This is an event describing in detail that a young man from the Army was burned by someone. This is the only important case. Because they (ISIL) don't burn, usually they behead people or execute them by shooting. This [is a hadith that is written in a ] work  1,200 years old.The map of all events was explained by the Prophet.

ANOTHER MIRACLE OF THE END TIMES  FORETOLD IN THE HADITH TOOK PLACE IN THIS YEAR

A CELESTIAL EVENT THAT HAPPENS ONCE EVERY TWO THOUSAND YEARS: APPEARANCE OF THE STAR OF BETHLEHEM

Before the appearance of the Mahdi a star rises from the East and illuminates like the illumination of a moon. The two ends then hang until almost combined. A color emerges in the sky and the light spreads to its both horizons. (Nuaim ibn Hammad, Kitab al-Fitan, Chapter: Mahdi and the End Times)

Our Prophet (peace be upon him) says that the star of Bethlehem will show up during the time of the Mahdi. Our Prophet (saas) says the Mahdi will come;  and the Star of Bethlehem will appear in the time of Mahdi by emphasizing the second thousand years. The Star of Bethlehem  comes into existence when the planets Venus and  Jupiter  approach one another in a way that can be observed by the world. Actually this is not a star –not a comet- but an image that that comes into existence from the convergence of two big planets,  Venus and  Jupiter in a way that can be seen from the world. First it looks like two separate parts then they merge. Recently newspapers reported the appearance of the "Star of Bethlehem". Our Prophet (saas) says that this is the glad tidings for the appearance of the Mahdi. He says it is the portent of the appearance (of the Mahdi). Another portent  had taken place at the birth of Prophet Jesus (as) and now. (It has taken place). It is one of the other miracles of our Prophet (saas). Kitab al-Fitan writes. The authentic hadith book. The Gospel also speaks of it.

EXPLANATIONS OF VERSES FROM SURAH YUSUF

Surah Yusuf, Verse: 38

"I hold fast to the creed of my forebears Ibrahim (Abraham) and Ishaq (Isaac) and Ya'qub (Jacob). We don't associate anything with God. And that is how God has favored us and all mankind, but most do not give thanks."

"I hold fast to the creed of my forebears Abraham and Isaac and Jacob. We don't associate anything with God."  We practice only what is in the Book of God. "And that is how God has favored us and all mankind, but most do not give thanks." This is the religion of convenience. God says that when they should appreciate this beauty and give thanks to God, they do the opposite and torment themselves instead.

Surah Yusuf, Verse: 39

"My fellow-prisoners, are many lords better, or God, the only One, the Conqueror?"

He asks if many religious sects and their understanding of the religion according to their sect's Imams are better, or just one religion, the one that the Book of God shows us. As far as I understand, they also think in a more traditional way. They probably had already divided the religion into sects in those times as well.

Surah Yusuf Surah, Verse: 40

"What you serve apart from Him are only names which you and your forefathers have made up. There is no mandate for them from God. God alone is qualified to judge. His order is to worship none but Him. That is in truth the straight and upright religion, but most of mankind simply do not know."

"What you serve apart from Him are only names which you and your forefathers have made up" Leaders, imams, hodjas [Muslim scholars, preachers, clergymen] those that they hold in awe, "There is no mandate for them from God." In other words, those that do not act according to the verse have no mandate.

Surah Yusuf, Verse: 41

"My fellow-captives, one of you will serve his lord with wine, the other of you will be crucified and birds will eat his head. The thing you asked about is foreordained."

In the verse, one of them deals with wine. He does not drink it himself, but he will help his master drink it. Exactly the traditional Orthodox way of thinking. They do not drink it themselves but serve it to others. The other explains the terrorist way of thinking; he loses his head and birds eat his brain. It refers to the spirit of horrors, the terrorists spread upon the Earth right now. There is also a sign about this.

Surah Yusuf, Verse: 42

"He said to the one of them he knew was saved, 'Please mention me when you are with your lord,' but Satan made him forget to remind his lord, and so he stayed in prison for several years."

But of course the man forgets to mention him.

Surah Yusuf, 43

The King declared, 'I dreamt of seven fat cows which seven thin ones ate and seven green ears of wheat and seven others which were dry. O counselors! Explain my dream to me if you are those who can interpret visions!'

And here, they also eat lean cows. You know that the new scientific feed is made out of animal meat, there is a reference to this. We see something that tells us about the End Times.

 

New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (23 June 2015)

 

DENIERS DENY NOT BECAUSE THEY CAN'T FIND EVIDENCE BUT BECAUSE OF THEIR ARROGANCE

I seek refuge in God from the accursed satan: “Those who do not expect to meet Us”, in other words, those who deny the afterlife, “say, ‘Why have angels not been sent down to us? Why do we not see our Lord?’ They have become arrogant about themselves and are excessively insolent.[Surat Al-Furqan, 21] So, God states the main reason. It is arrogance, we assume that an unbeliever does not believe because he cannot see evidence, he cannot get it together in his head, or it is beyond his ken. But, God says it is the feeling of arrogance. It is a relentless feeling of arrogance.

 

IT IS UNDERSTOOD THATTHERE WAS A COMMUNIST SYSTEM IN THE TIME OF PHARAOH

I seek refuge in God from the accursed satan: “Pharaoh called to his people, saying,”, calling is their typical characteristic actually, “"‘My people, does the kingdom of Egypt not belong to me? Do not all these rivers flow under my control?” (Surat Az-Zukhruf, 51) So, he nationalized everything. He didn’t leave any property to the people. The state seized all property, and a minority came about. In other words, there is a communist system, as far as I understand. It is understood that the state confiscated all the property of its people. Look, even the rivers, he even claimed the rivers.

 

THINGS CAUSING ARROGANCE IN THE STORY OF PHARAOH:

Am I not better than this man” he says, am I not higher, “who is contemptible and can scarcely make anything clear?[Surat Az-Zukhruf, 52]

So look, an ability to speak well, in other words oratory skills, rather than speaking wisely, causes arrogance.  For example, as he belongs to a ‘class’, a society, and as he sees him (Moses) as from the common people, he regards himself highly. We understand this is a reason for arrogance. He says he is “contemptible”. How can someone be contemptible? There is no financial means, military power, etc. So this causes a feeling of arrogance in them. Examples can be multiplied of course.  “… scarcely make anything clear.” If they see a deficiency in a person, this augments their arrogance then.

Why have gold bracelets not been put upon his arms.” He thinks property and wealth change someone’s prestige instantly. But he talks about bracelets, he doesn’t accept gold blocks, he talks about wearable gold decorations. “… and why is there not a train of angels accompanying him?[Surat Az-Zukhruf, 53] He wants this as a matter of prestige. However angels do not appear like that. Yes, they come, but in the form of a man, people do not realize them. What he wants are angels with wings, he wants them as non-human beings.

In that way he swayed his people” He despises people. For example in Pakistan, in India, there are these bootlickers. There are these American and English sympathizers. They despise the common people and patronize them. They despise their beliefs; for example, they despise their way of dressing, the way they eat. They think themselves  classy.

 

GOD PREVENTS ARROGANT PEOPLE FROM HIS RELIGION

I seek refuge in GOD from the accursed satan. I will divert from My Signs all those who are arrogant in the earth without any right.” (Surat Al-A’raf, 146) When they become arrogant, God makes them sick. So when they feel arrogant, God prevents them from His religion. He makes them mindless. But recklessness occurs; I mean they have no fear. They are insane. For example, marijuana is illegal, narcotic drugs are illegal but he doesn’t fear that, he openly takes drugs. He doesn’t hesitate, like a kind of psychopath. Or unlicensed arms are illegal, but he carries a gun on his belt. He is a psychopath, he has no fear. Such men have a horrid ability to not fear God. They are more reckless. Those who know fear can fear God. They are more stable, more consistent.

 

IT IS A MIRACLE THAT PEOPLE LIVE IN A PLACE THEY LIKE

I seek refuge in God from the accursed satan: “We settled the tribe of Israel in a noble place and gave them good things as provision.” (Surah Yunus, 93). Look, God says a noble place. But people might not like a place. But God makes them like it. It is a miracle. For example, you settle someone in a place and he gets uncomfortable. He might not like that place even if it is a pleasant place. But God says we settled them in a noble place. So God made them like it.

 

THE TRIBE OF ISRAEL SPLIT UP AMONG THEMSELVES REGARDING NUMBER OF WIVES OF THE PROPHET SOLOMON (PBUH) AND THAT HE ENRICHED ISRAEL

We settled the tribe of Israel in a noble place and gave them good things as provision. They did not differ until knowledge came to them. Your Lord will decide between them on the Day of Rising regarding the things about which they differed[Surah Yunus, 93]

The tribe of Israel, who left Egypt with the Prophet Moses (pbuh), settled in the Promised Land and became wealthy in the time of the Prophet Solomon (pbuh). Before that, there were divisions among the tribe of Israel but in that period, they lived a nomadic life. The tribe of Israel split up among themselves regarding the number of wives of the Prophet Solomon (pbuh)  and that he enriched Israel. They criticized it. They said, “He brought pagan women”; in fact they converted to Islam. The rabbis of the time opposed him saying, “He’s got a thousand wives, he is very fond of women”, the rabbis of the time opposed him. As you know they opposed the Prophet Solomon (pbuh) when he was alive.

After the Prophet Solomon’s (pbuh) death, the kingdom split up; 10 of the 12 tribes broke away from the kingdom. Upon this division, the two neighboring states frequently fought and conflicts happened. The Qur’an refers to this matter. Knowledge came to them, and then Solomon’s Temple was destroyed. 10 of the 12 tribes broke away from the kingdom. A great turmoil broke it up.

 

GOD PRAISES THE PROPHET SOLOMON (PBUH) IN THE TORAH

For example, All-Mighty God is very pleased with the Prophet Solomon (pbuh). The rabbis are not pleased with him but God is. They hurl incredible insults at the Prophet Solomon (pbuh) in the Torah but God praises him. For example in the Torah, it is stated: “When Solomon completed the temple, the palace, everything he wanted to do, the Lord appeared to him, as He appeared in Givan before, and said, “I heard your prayers and your entreaties. I consecrated this temple that you raised for my name be there forever”. Look, God praises him, “My eyes will be on him, and my hearth will be always there”.

 

EXPLANATIONS REGARDING THE EFFECTS OF WEALTH ON COMMUNICATING RELIGION IN THE STORY OF THE PROPHET SOLOMON (PBUH)

It is also explained in the Torah that the wealth of the Prophet Solomon (pbuh), the quality of the people around him and their wearing of rich clothes were all effective in conveying the message. Kings 10: “When the Queen of Sheba saw all the wisdom of Solomon and the palace he had built, the food on his table, the seating of his officials, the attending servants in their robes, his cupbearers, and the burnt offerings he made at[a] the temple of the Lord, she was overwhelmed.” Do you see his method? He dresses up smartly, there is  great wealth, the furniture is excellent, and the place is excellent. When he conveys the message to the woman, she immediately says, “I believe”.  She is impressed. She told the Prophet Solomon (pbuh), “The report I heard in my own country about your achievements and your wisdom is true. But I did not believe these things until I came and saw with my own eyes. Indeed, not even half was told me; in wisdom and wealth you have far exceeded the report I heard” she says. “How happy your men must be! How happy your officials, who continually stand before you and hear your wisdom! Praise be to the Lord your God, who has delighted in you and placed you on the throne of Israel. Because of the Lord 's eternal love for Israel, he has made you King, to maintain justice and righteousness.” says the Queen of Sheba. The clothes are excellent she says, the furniture is excellent, morals are excellent, the order of things is excellent, people's manners are excellent, everything is excellent, she says. The appearance of the house, his wealth, everything is excellent, she says to the Prophet Solomon (pbuh).

In the Qur'an, 1,400 years ago, a reference was made to cardiac massage

Surat Al-Baqarah, Verse: 72-73

"Remember when you killed someone and violently accused each other of it, and God brought out what you were hiding. We said, ´Hit him with part of it!´ In that way God gives life to the dead and He shows you His Signs so that hopefully you will understand."

"…God brought what you were hiding." The killer was not known, the dead must speak to make it known. " We said: "Hit him with a part of it (of the cow). In that way God gives life to the death and He shows you His Signs so that hopefully you will understand."

Also in modern medicine, cardiac massage is applied when the heart stops, and if it does not start beating with the massage, they strike a strong blow on the heart. Like a punch. The heart suddenly starts beating again. This verse of the Qur'an refers to a recently discovered scientific method. 

IN THE TIME OF PHARAOH, THEY BELIEVED THAT HATHOR DID EVERYTHING

The progeny of Pharaoh had Marfan Syndrome. They had very long fingers and toes, and a strange skull structure. They also had heart disorders, as there are a lot of disorders in Marfan Syndrome. However, when they see Hazrat Moses (pbuh) in the water, they see that he seems unusually healthy and very beautiful. They believe that their idol Hathor has sent him to them.

They rejoice, and are amazed that he is in a chest because no one would leave a child on the Nile. Of course, the child arrives at where the family of Pharaoh is, right at the beach of the palace. Right then, they are convinced that Hathor has sent him. God says that they were wrong, that he has come as a calamity for them. God says "...an enemy of Mine and his will pick it up." Essentially, God says that He sent him [the Prophet Moses (pbuh)]to destroy them.

They believed that it was Hathor who did everything, they believed that he gave birth to children and raised the Nile. They believed that he did everything. During his childhood, up until his teenage years, they told the Prophet Moses (pbuh) that Hathor was his father and that he had ensured his birth. But of course, the Prophet Moses (pbuh) discovered the truth later on.

EXPLANATIONS FROM THE QUR’AN ABOUT THE ADMIRATION OF DISBELIEF FOR POWER

At that time idols were representing the unity of the state. In other words, the state was gathering people around those idols. Like a club, I mean. Not that they believed in those idols, it was like going to a club. In the time of our Prophet (saas) for example, there were four well -known idols. They were the official idols of the state. They were supported by the state. When people advocated those idols, it meant they advocated the state. The state is equal to idols; idols are equal to the state, in other words. They were interrelated with the state.

Also modern states always need an idol. They generate new idols and people gather around those idols in some countries. It gives a feeling of unity to the state, strengthens a sense of esprits de corps. It is something around which people come together. It is an irreligious society, it is a pagan society but it needs to have a belief, a philosophy. They gather around it, like a club. One of them asks, “Which idol do you worship?”, and the other asks, “Which idol do you worship?”. He replies he worships the same idol and a citizenship-like connection is built. This provides some kind of friendship and security . So, those who do not serve that idol are considered to have risen against the state. They are considered not to recognize the state. If an idol stands for itself, it would be invaluable for them. If it is merely a stone idol, no one would care about it. But as it represents a state, it is very important for them. That is why they respect it. For example, they clean up the place where the idol stands upon, they butter up to it, put food in front of it, put plates before it, and some of them even sacrifice animals to the idol.  And  word spreads; people talk about it, they say someone came and sacrificed a camel to the idol for example. At that moment, he gains a good standing in the view of the state and the people. He is well-regarded, in other words he serves the club. Otherwise he also knows what an idol is; it’s not that he cares about it.

Hazrat Abraham (as) destroyed the idols, only leaving the biggest one behind. And he does that as a tactic, he does so to mock them. Because such a  group mentality developed back then, such irrational things they respected, he mocked at them by using that respect, that awkward club mentality. Of course they don’t believe it, it is not something they believe in. He does so just to make fun of them, to ridicule them. He laughs at their situation. Indeed they attack him as soon as he answers. I mean, people see that Hazrat Abraham (as) did not tell the truth. They ask, “Who destroyed our idols?”, he answers, The biggest one must have done it”. He says so to show them how miserable they are. The state is humiliated by his attack. In other words, the idolatrous state is basically humiliated with the attack he did. Then, the state defends itself against this humiliation to protect the system. And they say let us burn him, Hazrat Abraham (as). Because if they can burn him, the state will have protected its honor. So it regains its authority. As they could not burn him, the state was humiliated even more. Therefore, Hazrat Abraham (as) took control there. The system always works like that in general.

 

EXPLANATION OF VERSE FROM SURAT AL-FURQAN

Do you suppose that most of them hear or understand?” (Surat Al-Furqan, 44)

It is usually referred to the people there, “Do you suppose that most of them hear or understand?” They were so obsessed with idols, they were so unconscious with their club mentality, and their way of speaking was meaningless and very irrational. But since they had a lot of respect for each other’s rules and idolized those rules, they did even the funniest thing with a great enthusiasm. Nobody would criticize them. Funny rituals, funny behaviors, for example were respected. As no one comes and says, “The king is naked”, and the system survives. But as prophets radically humiliate these systems, the system is destroyed from its roots. But of course prophets are extremely brave.

 

IN SAME STATES THERE ARE  SYSTEMS OF IDOLATRY PEOPLE GATHER AROUND: THEY IDOLIZE PEOPLE

People say to Hazrat Hud (as), for example” in Surah Hud, 53, I seek refuge in Allah from cursed satan, “We will not forsake our gods for what you say”. What are gods? It is a symbolic system that unites whole nation there. In the UK, for example, there are such idol systems and people gather around them. They make tiny idols. They make idols made of humans. For example, one guy comes and people go crazy when they see him, they yell, throw themselves around. It is not that they care about him much; it is because they believe an idol is worshipped in such manner. It is kind of a worshipping. A man comes and people throw themselves around, shouting with all their power. They idolize him. There is nothing to set the world on fire; he is normally a poor fellow. He doesn’t have an extraordinary quality. But idol welcoming ceremonies give them excitement, gathering around an idol. One of them asks, for example, “Do you like that idol?”, “I like it a lot” the other replies, “How about you?”, “I like it too” he answers. “Tomorrow that idol is coming, we are going there” he says. As soon as they see him, they go crazy, scream, yells, some of them cry. It is not that it is a big thing; there is nothing to go crazy about. If they see him alone, they wouldn’t care. If you do not introduce him as an idol and if he goes to their houses “What do you want my friend?” they ask, they would not want him, they wouldn’t give him any time, “What do you want, are you a beggar?” But when he is introduced as an idol, they go insane and gather around that idol.

For example, they produce various idolatry systems. Those idolatry systems have their unique clothes, unique hair styles, unique music models. When they gather around a certain idol, a unity is formed. Excitement of that unity affects them very much.

For example, they say let’s worship satan, its not that they believe in satan. It is not that these satanists believe in satan. They make up a superficial idol. They normally take no notice of satan, they don’t believe in satan. But they do it as they need something to gather around. For example, someone comes and sets up some rules, and everybody shows respect to these rules. For example he says, “You need to kill cats”, “Do we?” they say and everybody follows this rule. “You need to kill chickens” he says for example, and everybody follows it. They know it is disgusting and horrible. But that rule is set up once. It is just like that in a system of idolatry. There is no turning back.

 

CONSIDERING ITS MILITARY POWER, TECHNOLOGY ETC., THEY IDOLIZE AMERICA IN A WAY; THEY SEE AMERICA LIKE HEAVEN

“‘Carry on as you are! Hold fast to your gods’” (Surah Sad, 6) they say. This is devotion to the system of the state.

For example, what represents the United States of America? The American flag, those stars, those parallel lines, red, blue and white. There is another banner they use, they use such colors in it as wall. Their philosophy is gathered around it. For example, T-shirts, the pants of youngsters are like that, they wear them to the restaurants they go to;  There is a culture and mentality there. There is a way of laughing, for example. For example cowboy hats become a symbol. They gather around that symbol. For example, the way they laugh, the way they walk, their indifference, their mentality to punish others, their suppressive mentality  are all classical traditions of that idolatrous system. What does America do for example? When it desires, when it sees something it doesn’t like, it immediately bombs it. It does not occur to them to convince others or talk about an  approach with the spirit of   the Bible. Because instead of eliminating this idolatrous system, they strengthen it. it is attached to them like a patch. They can’t get rid of this patch, it is a patch of at least 150 years, they can’t get rid of it.

For example, he receives a Green Card, got involved in the American paradise. In other words, he [sees himself like] moving from the Asian hell to the American paradise. He sees Asia as a kind of hell. So, they try so hard to move to America, with a crazy ambition, to be involved in the American heaven. He thinks he would at least sort of attain immortality, he’d find happiness.

But everywhere Allah exits – and He exists everywhere – everywhere is Heaven with faith. If you do not believe in Allah, wherever you go, it is hell.

 

IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO FIGHT AGAINST IDOLS. IF IT IS DANGEROUS, A PERSON MIGHT PRETEND TO BE ON IDOL’S SIDE AND KEEP HIS FAITH

“We conveyed the tribe of Israel across the sea and they came upon some people who were devoting themselves to some idols which they had.” So, they show their incompetence, their devotion ond respect to them. “They said, ‘Musa, give us a god just as these people have gods’..." (Surat Al-A’raf, 138) they say. “Establish an idolatrous system” they say and “We are going to follow it”. Because in Egypt, there is a golden calf of 10 tons, 20 tons. When he is asked, “Whom are you devoted to?” he answers I’m devoted to the calf. Everybody respects this people of the calf. If you are from the people of the calf, it is easier for you to find a job, to find food. You are subjected to the system of the state; you are a man of Pharaoh. What Pharaoh says when he promises rewards is “You will be close to the state”. But there are people who live in an idolatrous state system and hide their faith. They deceive idols; they are not devoted to them. They pretend to be devoted, but they do it as a tactic. Hazrat Abraham (as) did this too. Similarly the person in the Pharaoh’s palace, who is probably Hazrat Khidr (as), hides himself as well.

It is not necessary to fight against idols. If needed, a person might present himself as being on the idol’s side and nonetheless keeping his true faith. In other words, if it is dangerous, if it is likely for the idol-worshippers to destroy him, kill him or prevent him from practicing his religion, the person would not be responsible for it, as stated in the verse. He can pretend as if he is on the idol-worshipper’s side, I mean if they will hurt him otherwise.

EXPLANATIONS OF VERSES FROM SURAT AL-KAHF

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 83

"They will ask you about Dhu'l-Qarnayn. Say: 'I will tell you something about him'."

"They will ask you about Dhu'l-Qarnayn." That is to say that they deem the name important so they ask about knowing the name. The name, Dhu'l-Qarnayn is a name that is common among Christians, Jews, everyone. So, it might be helpful to check the Torah and the Bible.

"Say: I will tell you something about him." Something about him; that means the information that will be given will not be extensive, it will just be some relevant information. What is the purpose? Advice. Firstly it will be an advice and secondly it will be a reminder. What is there to remember? The End Times. They will compare the incidents in the End Times to those in the verse and say "how similar these are" and thus, they will remember.

A STRONG RULERSHIP MUST BE BASED UPON A SOUND FAITH AND BELIEF

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: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."  Power and authority; Weak rulership is unsettling. For it to have power and authority, it has to rely on a sound belief. No rulership can have power and authority without a sound belief, a sound faith to rely on. The rulership of Solomon (pbuh) was strong because it was built upon a sound belief. But when it consists of a mixture of various beliefs, it becomes weak. The power is divided and even though they come together, they are not as effective as the whole.

"…and granted him a way to everything." Who grants him the way? God. Who creates everything? God. So, it is not the ability of Dhul-Qarnayn himself. No one has these abilities themselves. God has given him power and authority.

Surat Al-Kahf, Verses: 85 - 86

"So he followed a way until he reached the setting of the sun and found it setting in a muddy spring and found a people by it. We said, 'Dhu'l-Qarnayn! You can either punish them or else you can treat them with gentleness'. "

"So he followed a way." A way that is shown by God. What number is the verse? 85. So that means 85-86 is when it all begins. These verses refer to years 1985 and 1986. In other words the years 1985-1986 are the ones that showed the mettle, the liveliness and strength of the system of Mahdi the most, and that the system of the Antichrist suffered the most.

"Until, when he reached the setting of the sun." So the knowledge and wisdom of the system of the Mahdi will reach everywhere. Their books, their knowledge will reach China, Japan, everywhere. It indicates that this power, this wisdom will reach the setting and the rising sun, in other words, all around the world.

'THE SUN SETTING IN A MUDDY SPRING' MENTIONED IN THE VERSE REFERS TO THE DIFFICULTIES THE SYSTEM OF THE MAHDI ENCOUNTERS

"...(he) found it setting in a muddy spring.." The ocean was like a muddy spring during the tsunami in Japan. They also showed the setting of the sun in the footage taken. It was as if the sun was setting in a muddy spring and it was a major catastrophe. The Qur'an refers to this in one aspect. The verse might also refer to the system of the Mahdi as the sun, that will be held in a dark and muddy prison for a while; I mean in a symbolic sense. 

That is because he is a sun-like being; but he is in a dark and muddy place, in other words, it might be symbolizing that he will be held in a terrible place for a while. Which verse is this? 86. That means in the year 1986, something will happen against the system of the Mahdi. Maybe, the system of the Mahdi will face confinement. Maybe he will be held in a dark cell that can be described as muddy. He will be left in a tough situation in a dark and dirty cell; like confinement or isolation in a sense. But the system of the Mahdi will continue to be the 'sun'. So, it might be said that there is a reference to the year 1986 here.

" … and found a people by it. We said, 'Dhu'l-Qarnayn! You can either punish them or else you can treat them with gentleness." This means that, as the chief commander, he can resolve this issue with war and bloodshed; or he can do it with peace, friendship, love and  kindness. Mahdi (pbuh) will choose to do it with love, kindness, wisdom and understanding. Naturally, he has the right to defend himself. He can lay waste to them if he choose to do so but he won't, he will resolve things with love. There is a reference to this.

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 87

"He said, ´As for those who do wrong, we will punish them and then they will be returned to their Lord and He will punish them with a dreadful punishment."

"He said: "As for those who do wrong, we will punish them." He does not say "we will kill them, hang them" or such. For instance, what happens when the PKK [a terrorist organization] terrorizes people? They are sent to prison. This is punishment. They are punished with prison. "… and then they will be returned to their Lord…" Eventually, these people die; but the real punishment is in the Hereafter. "… and He will punish they with a dreadful punishment." Pay attention, "a dreadful punishment." The earthly punishment pales in comparison to the punishment in Hereafter.

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 88

"But as for him who believes and acts rightly, he will receive the best of rewards and we will issue a command, making things easy for him."

"But as for him who believes and acts rightly, he will receive the best of rewards…" He should believe in God. How will he attain that faith? He will attain that faith with the facts leading to faith, with the miracles of Qur'an and with his conscience. What should he do then? He should be sincere. It is not possible without sincerity. Faith and sincerity is intertwined, they constitute a whole, in other words.

THERE ARE SIGNS REFERRING TO THE SYSTEM OF THE MAHDI IN THE STORY OF DHU'L-QARNAYN

" ...and we will issue a command, making things easy for him." So what will the system of the Mahdi work for? For making things easy. The Qur'an points towards this. This will be the duty of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). That is because the Qur'an tells us about an incident that happened back in time. The story of Dhu'l-Qarnayn does not tell us a story of the past and expect us to listen to it as if it was a story. God tells us that there is a warning, an example and a reminder in it. So we will remember it and then make a comparison, saying, "Look, it is exactly the same, same things are happening in the system of the Mahdi as well."

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:89

"… Then he followed another way."

Which verse is this? The 89th. So this means that 89 is a milestone. 89, 99, 2009, 2019.

God speaks of an easiness, making things easier in 88th verse. So there will be some comfort, a relief in 88.

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: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."

That means he will arrive at a place on a coast because there are beaches on the coasts and people wear less clothes there. Women wear more revealing clothes and men swim in shorts. So they are not given any shelter from the sun.

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:91

"Our knowledge encompasses all that happened to him."

Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will not engage in demagogy. His words will be brief but to the point, target-oriented and erudite. He won't give long-winded speeches to sell himself.  His words will be directed towards the essence of the matter; they will be erudite, short but impressive, encompassing and bringing exact solutions.

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:92

"Then he followed a path."

The 92nd verse. So, the year 92 will be another milestone.

WE UNDERSTAND FROM SURAT AL-KAHF THAT THE SYSTEM OF THE MAHDI WILL GIVE A STRUGGLE AGAINST THE PKK

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:93

"Until he arrived the area between the two barriers where he found a people scarcely able to understand speech."

"…two barriers…" You know that there are two barriers between the two mountainous regions there between Turkey and Iraq.  There are minefields and barbed wire fences creating a barrier. There are also barriers between Syria and Turkey. That makes two sets of barriers. Meaning the Syrian and Iraqi borders. What barriers are used  there? Usually, mines are used, minefields. Barbed wire fences or concrete walls are used as barriers. God says in the verse that he arrives there. Meaning, he will continue his work even in there and will fight against the system of the antichrist. So we understand that the system of the Mahdi will also give a struggle against the PKK.

The abjad calculation of this verse gives 2015. Abjad calculation gives the exact date of the present. That means the struggle against the PKK will intensify on this date. With the system of the Mahdi taking the lead, there will be an immense intensity in that struggle. 

"...where he found a people scarcely able to understand speech." There is a reference to the members of PKK. They insist on speaking another language. They are careful about not speaking in Turkish, even though they can. They do not listen to what you say. You try to talk to them about the matter at hand, but they pretend not to understand. When we look at this in respect of the system of the Mahdi, the verse refers to the PKK.

GOG AND MAGOG (YAJUJ AND MAJUJ) REFERS TO THE TERRORIST MOVEMENTS AND EVENTUALLY MAHDI'S HELP WILL BE ASKED REGARDING THIS MATTER

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 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?"

"They said, Dhu'l-Qarnayn! Yajuj and Majuj are causing corruption in the land…" So, this means Marxists and the communist crew, the members of the PKK, will cause corruption and terrorize the earth. They will inflict pain and misery upon people. It is understood that eventually, people will come to Mahdi (pbuh) and ask him to "Correct this, solve this issue."

"... Can we, therefore, pay tribute to you in return for your constructing a barrier between us and them?" They offer Mahdi (pbuh) money. The Qur'an refers to this. Yet Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) never accepts such a thing. But he sets a barrier, a spiritual barrier, a scientific, intellectual barrier; everything that will stop this terror and anarchy, including a military solution and a scientific solution; a spiritual barrier.

Brother Sungur told us: "You have been the barrier of Dhul-Qarnayn for us, and they couldn't overcome that barrier and reach us." What did he mean? He meant a spiritual barrier. The total of material and spiritual barriers are meant here. Surely, as vanguards of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), we also set a barrier of sorts against the system of the antichrist. But Mahdi (pbuh) will set the proper barrier.

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 95

"He said, 'The power my Lord has granted me is better than that. Just give me a strong helping hand and I will build a solid barrier between you and them."

"I am already well-off" he says. "I don't ask of you a house, a mansion, a palace, anything; nor do I want money. Just give me a strong helping hand, help me with your human strength; in other words, your words and bodies."  Meaning, he says; "Help me with your military strength, strength of propaganda, strength of communication, with your radio, television."

"Just give me a strong helping hand and I will build a solid barrier between you and them."  Yes, strong helping hand is military strength. "… solid barrier" is again a military barrier. Both a spiritual work and a military barrier is meant here.

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 96

"Bring me ingots of iron!" Then, when he had made it level between the two high mountain-sides, he said, 'Blow!' and when he had made it a red hot fire, he said, ´Bring me molten brass to pour over it.´

"Bring me ingots of iron! Then, when he had made it level between the two high mountain-sides, he said, 'Blow!" What are these ingots of iron? Tanks are ingots of iron. Cannon balls are ingots of iron. What are weapons? They also are ingots of iron. Tanks are about made up of about 60 tons of iron. Howitzer cannon balls are approximately five or ten kilos of iron. These are the heavy weapons that will be used during those times.

"... and when he had made it a red hot fire, he said, 'Bring me molten brass to pour over it." "Blow!" he says; in other words he tells them to fire. To be made into fire; because a weapon is a cold and quiet object, but when it is fired, it blows fire and flames out of its mouth. The enemy is then neutralized as a result. There is reference to that in a sense. He says, "Bring me molten brass to pour over it." This means that he will strengthen the system and put it into order. It is understood that there will be a second barrier over the system after this struggle. "Brass" is from copper. So there is a reference to another electronic barrier that will be built and to electronic precautions that will be taken.

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 97

"They were, therefore, unable to climb over it nor were they able to make a breach in it."

It means that he built such a solid defense and caused such destruction upon the PKK that no one can overcome it again, nor they have a system that can penetrate it. So, the system is absolute. The system of the antichrist, in other words the mentality of the PKK, of Pharaoh is wiped out.

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 98

"He said, 'This is a mercy from my Lord. But when my Lord´s promise comes about, He will crush it flat. The promise of my Lord is surely true'."

"God is the One Who makes everything happen", he says. "He made this happen too," he says. "Mercy" is a beauty of the love of God, it is created by God. And the verse points out that when the time comes, neither PKK, nor the military measures, systems developed to against the PKK will remain. None will remain, all will perish. The verse refers to this. The verse mentions the Last Day and says that the Last Day is very close, from that we understand that there is a reference to the system of the Mahdi. If there is a reference to the Last Day, it means that there are also references to the system of the Mahdi and the End Times. The Last Day is always mentioned at the end of the subjects about Gog and Magog, or the Dabbe. That is the case throughout the Qur'an. It is also this way for the appearance of ad-Dukhan.

THE APPEARANCE OF AD-DUKHAN IS ALL KINDS OF ECONOMICAL, POLITICAL, SOCIAL CRISIS AND PROBLEMS THAT HAPPENS IN THE WORLD

The appearance of ad-Dukhan refers to anarchy, terror, profligacy and depression of all kinds that is going on in the world. That is what the appearance of the smoke mentioned in the verse refers to, it is not the smoke in a literal sense. Meaning a great depression, unrest, an economic crisis, anarchy, terror, problems of all kind.

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 99

"We will abandon them, that Day, to pound against each other in surging waves and the Trumpet will be blown and We will gather them all together."

The unbelievers will be resurrected and rise from their graves. This is what is meant in the verse; "...pound against each other in surging waves." There will be an inconceivable crowd. And at the end, they will run towards a destination. "Like a locust herd" it says in the verse. "They will surge over each other, pound against each other in surging waves like a locust herd does". This is the Last Day; their state during their resurrection on the Last Day.

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 100

"That Day We will display Hell in its totality to the unbelievers"

Our Lord also tells us about the kind of retribution unbelievers will be given. Hell will embrace them all around.

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:101

"…those whose eyes were blind to My remembrance and whose ears were unable to hear."

Because the PKK is a faithless, irreligious, Godless, Bookless, communist-minded organization, the Qur'an draws attention to the earlier state of this mentality on the earth.

"… whose ears were unable to hear." Are they able to hear right now? You cannot talk about religion. You cannot go to Mardin, you cannot go to Siirt, they don't let you talk about religion, they don't let you talk about God. They do not allow you to talk about the right and the truth. The ones who try to talk about these are attacked with guns.

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 102

"Do those who are unbelievers imagine that they can take My servants as protectors instead of Me? We have prepared Hell as hospitality for the unbelievers!"

For example, they take Abdullah Öcalan [Founder and leader of the PKK] as allies instead of God. They regard him as a deity (surely God is beyond such claims). Even he says that; "I became a deity." So they regard Öcalan as a deity, abide by him and listen to his every word. The meaning of the verse is clear in a way.

"We have prepared Hell as hospitality for the unbelievers!" So to make Muslims feel at ease, God says that He will take His revenge. The unbelievers have no power, eventually they will all end up in Hell. That is why God says, "Give good news to those." He says, "I will make them stay in Hell and take My revenge in there and engulf them in flames of hell."

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:103-104

"Say: ´Shall I inform you of the greatest losers in their actions? People whose efforts in the life of the world are misguided while they suppose that they are doing good'."

"People whose efforts in the life of the world are misguided while they suppose that they are doing good." For instance, these members of the PKK, this crew of heathens make a great effort and believe that they act incisively and they are right in their efforts. Moreover, they really believe that they are heroes, that they are courageous, that they save people. This verse of the Qur'an draws attention to this point.

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 105

Those are the people who reject their Lord´s Signs and the meeting with Him. Their actions will come to nothing and, on the Day of Rising, We will not assign them any weight.

Actually they openly say that they do not believe and reject God's Signs and His verses. 

ALL THE DEEDS OF THE UNBELIEVERS WILL BECOME WORTHLESS

"… Their actions will come to nothing and, on the Day of Rising, We will not assign them any weight." Of course, everything they did becomes worthless. They spend all of their life on mountains, in misery but in the end it is all for nothing. What God means by "We will not assign them any weight," is that their acts will not be accounted because their misdeeds are in the open, so God says "I will put them straight into hell".

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 106

"That is their repayment — Hell — because they were unbelievers and made a mockery of My Signs and of My Messengers."

You see that they ridicule prayers, they ridicule the Qur'an and the prophets (May God forbid). So God says,  "I will put you all in Hell to recompense for your deeds."

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:107

"Those who have faith and do right actions will have the Gardens of Firdaws as hospitality,"

Those who act with the spirit of the system of the Mahdi, their place is Heaven. Gardens of Firdaws, Gardens of Adn.

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:108

"Remaining in them timelessly, for ever, with no desire to move away from them."

 

New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (8 June 2015)

 

A MUSLIM'S LIFE WOULD BECOME MISERABLE WHEN EVEN A LITTLE BIT OF UNBELIEF RUBS OFF ON HIM

In 'The Rays', Bediuzzaman writes "The path of faith and oneness is short, straight, direct and easy. And the path of unbelief and denial is quite long, difficult and dangerous." Unbelief is really troublesome. It tears one's heart out. It is really distressful. Islam, on the other hand is very accommodating and comfortable; your mind and your soul are sound and at ease. But when even a little bit of unbelief rubs off on a Muslim, the misery begins. He feels suffocated, he becomes restless.

He might not know the source of it, but all those things happen because he partially slips towards unbelief. He feels a bit of admiration for unbelief and it destroys him. For example, he admires their style on the internet, and with it he chucks himself away. Or, he admires their lifestyles. In a sense, he admires not the religiously lawful but unlawful lifestyle. He wants to experience it just a little. He says that his religious and social lives are separate. Here is where they've lost. The truth is that life is a whole. Islam is in its entirety. Islam embraces all phases of life, everything about it. One would destroy himself if he acts in this way.
