MAHDI IN THE PROPHECIES OF NOSTRADAMUS

Nostradamus says, “The imprisoned prince will conquer Italy’. In other words, someone that was previously arrested, jailed. He calls him a prince. He says that person will conquer Italy. That’s also what Prophet Mohammed (pbuh) says. Nostradamus says: “He will cross the sea”, so he will come through the sea, “and conquer all places from Genoa to Marseilles”. “He will defeat the foreigners, and he will make a great effort and do it without using any bullets’. He says, he will take those places without shedding any blood. Masha’Allah, masha’Allah. Completely compliant with the hadiths of Prophet Mohammed (pbuh). He says 'he won’t use any bullets’ that ‘he will defeat the foreigners’: By educating them, talking to them, persuading them. 'He will make a great effort’ he says, “'He will cross the sea, and arrive by sea’ and continues: ‘He will be victorious from Genoa to Marseiles’. ‘He will conquer Italy, but before that, he will be arrested’. He is very clear with this narration. There is nothing vague. Masha’Allah. Very compliant with the hadiths.

MR. ADNAN OKTAR EXPLAINS THE TORAH

Amos 6:11 For behold, the Lord commands, and he shall smite the great house into splinters, and the small house into chips. This is from chapter 6, verse 11 in Amos. It clearly explains 9/11. Indeed, the buildings were smitten into splinters and chips. There were two buildings and both came down. First the big houses around them collapsed, followed by the smaller ones. They were burnt to ashes.

The Torah is full of these amazing explanations. I was just looking at it, and I immediately spotted this; there are many others. For example, they talk about the incidents in Egypt, incidents in Syria, how Syria was going to be like this and they are very lengthy descriptions. It is really very interesting.

HZ. MAHDI (AS) IN THE HADITHS

“When Mahdi (as) appears, those who consider themselves as his followers… Those who used to defend Hz. Mahdi (as) will stop doing that” says Prophet Mohammed (pbuh). Very thought worthy.  At the moment, people are talking about neither Hz. Mahdi (as), or the End Times, or the anti-Christ. The Messenger (pbuh) says “People who are distant from religion, will believe in Hz. Mahdi (as)”. In other words, the materialists, the Darwinists. Masha’ Allah. 

“Qaim (Mahdi) will encounter more challenges in his struggle than Prophet Mohammed (pbuh). Prophet Mohammed (pbuh) came when people were worshipping stone and wooden idols. However, those who go against the Qaim (Hz. Mahdi), will do that by using the Book of God. They will wage a war against Hz. Mahdi through the book of God. In other words, they will claim that they are following the Qur'an, while following their superstitions instead. For example, the headscarf is not an obligation according to the Qur'an, but despite that, they will say ‘it is’. It is not mentioned in  Surah Nur , but they will say ‘it is’ and Mahdi (as) will explain the truth. They will try to use the Qur'an to fight him, but they will misinterpret the Qur'an in their attempts to do so. 

'When Imam Mahdi is called to prayer, he will worship to God with His Hebrew name’ Insha’Allah. This is in Bihar-al Anwar. 

Al Qaim, one of the grandsons of Hz. Ali (ra), will turn the world into a whole new one. The world we know will completely change. There will be no more wars, no more fights, no more tyranny or oppression. Everywhere you look, you will see amazing architecture, breathtaking beauties. 'There will be no place left that Mahdi (as) has not planted, or made green’. The hadith makes it clear that he will make the whole world green.

'It is Al-Qaim that resembles Prophet Jesus the most in terms of appearance, character and nobility’. Our Prophet (pbuh) explains this. So Mahdi will really look like Prophet Jesus, a lot, with his face, his character and personality. 

'God will give Hz. Mahdi everything that He gave to the prophets.’ Hz. Mahdi (as) will be the summary of all prophets. 'More than that, He will choose Hz. Mahdi (as) over all of them.' In other words, Hz. Mahdi (as) will be superior to many prophets. This is mentioned in the Ahl-us Sunnah resources.

'He will disappear just like Prophet Joseph (as) disappeared'. Like getting arrested, being jailed. 'He will appear just like Jesus, son of Mary, appeared.’

'People will swear allegiance to him (Mahdi) so that he will rule with a new method, new principles and new rules.’ The whole world is changing. The tone, the attitude, moods, personality, rules, the understanding of religion will completely change. 

'None of the armies (students) of Mahdi (as) can be defeated until they die.' He says, they are invincible. Prophet Mohammed (pbuh) says that it is not possible until they die.

“'When Qaim Mahdi (as) comes, he will come with new principles and rules' says Prophet Mohammed (pbuh). 'He will rule with a new sunnah and new thoughts.' It will be a very modern, loving, friendly world, where democracy, brotherhood and peace flourish. 

'There is no son like him in terms of honor and virtue' he says for Hz. Mahdi (as). Masha’ Allah.

'He will be victorious over people and the jinns'.

'He will leave no place unplanted'. According to Prophet Mohammed (pbuh) everywhere will be green.

'Join those who reach him’. So he says that those who are his contemporaries should join Hz. Mahdi (as). ‘Blessed be those who join him and see his days’. Masha’ Allah. 

'Mahdi (as) and his students will settle down at the places where Prophet Noah resided.’ Where? Turkey. So Prophet Mohammed (pbuh) tells us about the country.

MR. ADNAN OKTAR EXPLAINS SURAH  AZ-ZARIYAT

Surah Az-Zariyat, 8th verse

You certainly have differing beliefs

This verse clearly explains the trouble of the Darwinists. You certainly have differing (conflicting) beliefs.” We ask them: ‘Do you accept the paleontological evidence?’ They say ‘Yes’. Then we say ‘OK, let’s go ahead and show the fossils to the whole world in an exhibit’. They say ‘I don't want that’. They say ‘Or else, I’ll go and bite those stones’. Good Lord.  Then we ask 'What if we tell people about the protein structure?’ They say ‘No, we don't want that either’. We say, ‘OK you do it then’, they reply ‘No, we don't want to do it either.’ Then we ask them ‘Has evolution ever happened?’ They say 'Yes'. 'Then is it OK if we talk about these facts?’. Their answer: ‘No, you can’t’. This is unacceptable. The verse refers to their conflicted thoughts : ‘You certainly have differing (conflicting) beliefs’

Surah Az-Zariyat, 9th verse

Averted from it is he who is averted. God says ‘...whoever is turned away from it, they are turned away’. God turns them away. It is their destiny.

Surah Az-Zariyat, 10th verse

Perish will those who just guess and speculate;

They only guess and speculate. They say ‘There was a primordial soup, it was boiling and then suddenly proteins popped into existence and then the cell came along and then the cells reproduced, became fish, the fish started dancing, and then went on and invented electron microscopes  and started studying itself.’ They are lying based on their guesses and speculations: The verse refers to them.

Surah Az-Zariyat, 11th verse

those who flounder in a glut of ignorance

Ignorance how? Because they don't study, they don't read, they don't research.

Surah Az-Zariyat, 48th verse

And the earth – We spread it like a carpet and how well We smoothed it out!

God makes mountains, everything very beautiful. However, He says, ‘We spread it like a carpet’. Indeed the continents keep drifting away from each other and when you look at the aerial photos, you can see that they were attached to each other before and that they broke off. And God says: ‘We smoothed it out’. How is smoothing out done? For example, think about a fistful of rice, or sand. You can smooth it out on the floor with your hand. God says ‘We smoothed out the continents’. This is happening at the moment, as science shows.

IT IS AMAZING THAT THE ALMIGHTY GOD IS RESHAPING THE WHOLE WORLD JUST FOR THE SAKE OF GOOD PEOPLE

The world is designed for good people, and the bad people are just none the wiser. God always creates special beautiful details, gifts, a sort of holy light, in everything He creates for believers, while the unbelievers suffer from a sort of darkness in everything they do. However, the unbelievers also benefit from the holy light of the believers. Indeed, in the Qur'an, God informs us that they will say: ‘That Day the men and women of the hypocrites will say to those who have belief, ‘Wait for us so that we can borrow some of your light.’ (Surat al-Hadid, 13) They don't ask for a direct gift for themselves. That’s the way this world functions. The unbelievers are indirectly benefiting from the gifts that God gives to the believers. They would have never gotten it in any other way. They can enjoy these blessings only indirectly. And God allows that because of the test everyone is having. God says to believers: ‘Say: These are for the believers in the life of this world, purely (theirs) on the day of resurrection ;”. (Surat al-Araf, 32) God doesn't even take the unbelievers into consideration. The verse means that they will indirectly benefit from the gifts created for the believers. This beautiful and subtle tone of the Qur'an makes everything very clear, though one has to be able to grasp that depth.

MR. ADNAN OKTAR EXPLAINS HADITHS ABOUT THE END TIMES

“There will come a time when prayers will be abandoned, houses will get taller, people will swear and curse a lot, bribery will spread’ says Prophet Mohammed (saas) as the signs of Hz. Mahdi (as)’s time.  He says: “Listen Halid” and continues, “There will be incidents, problems, division after me’. He informs us that the ‘Muslims will be divided, and that they won’t be united’. The companions were surprised to hear that Muslims could be ever divided.

And now, some people proudly say that ‘It is a blessing that the ummah is divided’. They claim that Prophet Mohammed (saas) said this, while in the Qur'an, God says that division is illegal, wrong and disastrous. However, the radicals, through their forged hadiths, claim that the division of Muslims is a good thing. According to them, the division and conflicts in the Muslim community is a blessing! They invent lies in the name of Prophet Mohammed (saas) and use that to create evil. 

“And conflicts will arise. Tough days are awaiting you.” That is the End  Times. Prophet Mohammed (saas) says “Anyone who is practicing his religion during those times, will get fifty times more good deeds than any of you.’ That’s how tough it will be in the End  Times. “The day of judgment  will not come before people greet only their  acquaintances, before the mosques are left empty, before  trade loses all of its profit’. Since all these things are happening around us, we are clearly in the End  Times.

He continues: “People will seem to get along while inside they will hate each other.’ And he says: ‘People will be proud of the tyranny they are unleashing upon others.’ In another hadith, Prophet Mohammed (saas) says that [a sign of the End of Times] ‘...will be despicable and vile people taking over the leadership’. And you see those very repulsive people being leaders, like in Egypt, or in Syria. Brutal psychopaths of the deep government take over the administrations of their countries and terrorize people. He says that ‘...the streets will be narrow due to houses’ in the End  Times and adds: ‘...orators will be abundant while the ones communicating Islam will be few’. Many countries have lecturers, they lecture at mosques, but do it only as a job and go home and mind their own business. However, the lecturers should spread Islam everywhere but these people lecture only on their due days according to a pre-determined speech. They don't explain anything other than that. Prophet Mohammed (saas) says ‘...there will be too many divorces’. In the End  Times, the rate of divorces has spiked up. This is another sign of the End  Times. Before, it was difficult to get a divorce. It wasn't easy in the Ottoman times, nor was it during the Republics’ first years, but now it is very easy, people divorce just like that.

“Sudden deaths”; For example people die suddenly in the middle of a speech. 

“Traitors will be trusted” in the End  Times, he says. For instance in Egypt, people trust Sisi, they respect him. They respect the anti-Christ of Syria . 

“Good people will be taken for bad people”. The greatest scholars, the people that communicate Islam in the best way, the most decent Muslims are (routinely) vilified in the media, in the newspapers.

WHEN A MUSLIM IS SINCERE ALLAH FLOWS WISDOM  TO HIM OR HER

Allah creates wisdom moment by moment. Sincerity is very important because Allah says, “Only my true, sincere servants will be saved.” When someone is sincere, Allah flows wisdom onto him or her. Wisdom always flows; wisdom is not inside the brain. People think that wisdom is hidden inside a box and it says in there; it is not like that. The head is empty inside. Wisdom flows inside one’s head like a stream by Allah’s leave. When Almighty Allah sees that person’s sincerity – He knows it in destiny- He flows wisdom to him or her constantly. When a person is insincere, He stops the flow of wisdom. Then that person becomes crazy. They encourage insincerity a lot with soap operas and movies; however, being a rational and balanced person is nice for both men and women.

Allah grants wisdom to a sincere person; this is very clear. This is seen in all the prophets and good people. For example, Allah takes the foresight and perception of a dark, suspicious, dishonest, hypocrite person, who doesn't want anything good and who doesn't feel mercy for others, away. They begin to act in an abnormal way. There would be a bad look in their eyes. Their speech would become disrupted and they lose their logic. Allah creates obstacles for them causing unfruitfulness. If you abandon sincerity, misfortune follows you everywhere: If you are honest and sincere, you begin to see that things that appear as misfortune are actually right. You would begin to see that there is good in everything.

DEFENDERS OF LOVE CAN BE SEEN ALL AROUND THE WORLD LIKE BEACONS OF LIGHT

They are the only reason why God allows the world to go on. The world survives just for the sake of them. It is the reason why the Day of Judgment is not breaking loose. For example, those people are visible in Turkey like beacons of light. They are also seen in the  USA like that as well; beacons of light, although few in numbers. God keeps this world going only for their sake. After a while, their numbers will increase and that light will cover everywhere. Then they will slowly dim, and then some more, and then they will be completely out, and when the world is enveloped in complete darkness, the world will just be shattered. In other words, there will be no reason left for the world to continue. 

THE WORLD GOES ON NOT FOR THE TYRANTS, NOT FOR THE LOVELESS

People of belief, as a manifestation of their beautiful love for God, carry a beautiful spirit and attitude. Otherwise, the world would have been perished long time ago. In other words, the world is still alive, but not for the vile people, not for the loveless, brutal, war-mongers. Do they want to shed blood? Then God says: ‘Leave that to me’. God says: ‘Does everyone want blood, does everyone want wars, tears, pain, death, hatred? Then’ says Almighty God. ‘I will end it once and for all’ and He sends  Day of Judgment . God explains in the Qur'an, ‘On that day, even the children will turn gray’. The children die and as a miracle, their hair turns white and shines like light. God says: “...you will think people drunk when they are not drunk”. Because they won’t be able to make coherent sentences, they will try to speak, but they won’t make any sense, they will be overwhelmed with fear. But wasn't that what they always wanted? God says ‘I will give them what they wanted all along’.

WHEN THE WHOLE WORLD AGREES ON SOMETHING GOD GRANTS THEM THEIR WISH

So, when the majority of  Muslims want Islamic Union, God will give them that. God gives everyone what they want. For instance, the unbelievers say: ‘We want blood, war, pain’. God says: ‘Granted’ and God gives them what they want. They say: ‘We want hell, we like darkness, evolution created us, that’s the kind of world we want’. Hell is a place that completely fits this description of theirs. It will be full of freakish creatures, like they have some genetic disorders. Everyone gets what they want. Or, sometimes, there are people who are unbelievers, but not brutal. The hell they will go to will be different. They will suffer only because they will see what they are missing when they compare their abode to Heaven. Say, he is a harmless, normal person that hasn't inflicted any pain on anyone, but he is an atheist.  God gives them a plain life. A monotonous, meaningless life. It is one of the layers in hell. They will be bored and tired of lovelesness, mercilessness and the constant comparison with the beauty of Heaven. That’s God’s punishment for him. But if he is a man that burned people, then God burns him. Or if he shackled believers, God will shackle him. But he will shackled for eternity.

LOVE REQUIRES SERIOUS EFFORT AND WISDOM

Love is something very tasteful and the most beautiful pleasure and blessing granted by Allah and one that delights the body most. It is difficult to understand why people resist love so much. The ones who side with love need to support love compassionately because love can be easily crumpled and quickly shattered. Anger is not quickly gone. Anger has a very solid foundation; grudges and hatreds have very a strong basis and they develop easily. Hatred can sprout with little effort. A little hatred can turn into a big one. However, love requires patience, willpower, wisdom, courtesy, cleanliness, respect and regard. So one must use his or her mind all the time. In cruelty, immorality, atrocities, inhumanity, lovelessness or mercilessness there is no need to use any wisdom. Animal instincts are enough. It is enough to behave like an animal; it is enough to move like an animal. Therefore, lovelessness and mercilessness are more advantageous because with love you would need to use your mind.

Love is the characteristic of quality people, because there is also the issue of maintaining that love. Love can be easily broken; it is a delicate thing. For example, you would take it for a hundred meters and it tries to fall down; you will pick it up immediately. It can crush somewhere; you need to turn it around easily; you need to make it corner easily. It is like driving a dangerous vehicle. Think that there is a child inside the vehicle or that it is a place full of many obstacles; such care is needed.

Loving Allah is also something that requires wisdom and effort but opposing Allah is very easy when you act on animal instinct. Irreligiousness is very easy. They can do it coarsely; but being religious, truly religious, is very difficult. It requires using the mind, gracefulness, effort, courtesy and conscience.

MR. ADNAN OKTAR’S EXPLANATIONS FROM THE TORAH

“Read, it will strike like lightening.”

It is understood that this is a rocket. “Read, it will strike like lightening.” So when it reaches the target, it blows up and lightens up, like  lightning; there is both noise and light. The place is turned upside down.

“He will march in the storms of the south, and the Lord Almighty will shield them. They will destroy and overcome with slingstones.”

It is said for believers: The Lord their God will save his people on that day as a shepherd saves his flock.

Believers are like jewels with their clothes, beauty and ornaments.

How attractive and beautiful they will be!”

For example, it is very meaningful. They are both handsome and beautiful. They say: “Why handsome and why beautiful?” Look, the Torah also points to this.

Diviners see visions that lie; they tell dreams that are false, they give comfort in vain.”

For example, really, they are on TV saying: “This star went here and such will happen and that star went there and this will happen.” They lie all the time. It is said in the Torah, “They divert people by telling dreams with no reality.”

My anger burns against the shepherds, and I will punish the leaders;”

For example, world leaders either die or get into trouble one by one, because they don't serve the system of the Mahdi. When they don't serve the system of the Mahdi, they meet with a disaster.

Egypt’s scepter will pass away.”

It says that the government in Egypt will be toppled.

Assyria’s pride will be brought down”

Meaning Iraq, that region… It was really overthrown. Look, its pride was toppled. The thing that draws attention the most is that they lost their pride. This was what is aimed at.

I will strengthen them in the Lord”

So Allah says, “I will make Muslims stronger.”

and in his name they will live securely,””

IT WOULD BE WRONG TO WORRY ABOUT THE PEOPLE OF HELL

Allah is al-Ghafoor and ar-Rahim. We trust Almighty Allah completely. Almighty Allah says, “Why should Allah punish you if you are thankful” Allah makes people live in the hereafter with a special knowledge that we are not aware of. But it would be very wrong to worry about the people of Hell. Look, let me give you a secret: Allah is al-Ghafoor and ar-Rahim. Allah is the One Who teaches mercy to us. We did not know mercy and He taught us. Allah doesn't do something that is cruel or grim. He is very merciful. He is very compassionate but He gives tyrants what they deserve. Believers see that and they are relieved. Believers see that tyrants are punished and they are relieved.

WHAT THE SOUL OF A TYRANT IS LIKE AND HOW A TYRANT FEELS PAIN; THAT IS BETWEEN HIM AND ALLAH. You are not concerned with that part. But Allah creates the tyrant; you will know that. Tyrants are necessary for trial.

MR. ADNAN OKTAR’S EXPLANATIONS FROM SURAT AN-NAJM

Surat an-Najm, verses 36-37

Or has he not been informed what is in the texts of Moses and of Abraham, who paid his dues in full.

“Or has he not been informed what is in the texts of Moses” In the texts of the Prophet Moses (as) Hazrat Mahdi (as) is mentioned in detail as Moshiach. “...and of Abraham, who paid his dues in full.” because in old texts there is a mention of Hazrat Mahdi (as) and the emergence of Moshiach.

Surat an-Najm, 58th verse

No one besides Allah can unveil it.

Who? Hazrat Mahdi (as). Who will unveil the Prophet Jesus (pbuh)? Allah. Who will unveil Hz. Mahdi (as)? Allah. Allah is the One Who will bring about the Islamic Union. Allah will bring about the Day of Judgment. How meaningful.

Surat an-Najm, verses 59-60

Are you then amazed at this discourse and laugh and do not cry.

“Are you then amazed at this discourse” We are talking about Hz. Mahdi (as), and the man is surprised. We are talking about the Prophet Jesus (pbuh). And he says, “O, how come?” He is surprised. “...and laugh” When we say the Mahdi (as) they laugh. We say the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will appear, and he laughs. We talk about the Islamic Union and he laughs. “...and do not cry.” Allah says, “You are in a miserable state.” Almighty Allah says “You should cry and not laugh.”

Surat an-Najm, 61th verse

Treating life as a game?

Bigots, for example, they heedlessly oppose; they say the Mahdi (as) will not come and the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will not  come but in an ignorant way, not based on any real information. They heedlessly reject the Day of Judgment.

THE ONE WHO IS ENVIED GETS MORE BEAUTIFUL AND THE ONE WHO ENVIES GETS UGLIER

This is Allah’s law. Look at those who envy; they are very repulsive and ugly. Look at those who are envied; they are very beautiful and radiant. The more they are envied, the more Allah increases their beauty and health and the more He prolongs their lives. He takes away their lifetime (those who envy) and gives it to them. He takes away his light and gives it to them. Almighty Allah takes away their energy and gives it to the ones who are envied so they become tired and devastated. He takes away whatever is good in them. If there is a disease Allah, takes is away from the ones who are envied and gives it to the envious. This is the law of Allah. This is the method of punishment Almighty Allah uses.

REMARKS BY MR. ADNAN OKTAR ON VERSES FROM SURAH IBRAHIM AND SURAH YUNUS

Surah Ibrahim, 5

We sent Moses with Our Signs: ‘Bring your people from the darkness to the light, and remind them of the Days of God.’ There are certainly Signs in that for everyone who is steadfast, thankful.

This is also mentioned in Shiite sources. It means remind them of the day of God, remind them that the Mahdi (pbuh) will come, remind them of those days. Insha’Allah.

Surah Ibrahim, 7

And when your Lord announced: “If you are grateful, I will certainly give you increase, but if you are ungrateful, My punishment is severe.”

"I will cause war, and rebellion and civil war. I will cause aggression and economic crises. I will ruin you," God says. There are people who say; “Are these things happening?” They even say that as they lie in their hospital beds. Their own families all wiped out. It has happened, you are living through it, but you are unaware. Have a look at the state of the world, of the Islamic world. And you will understand.

Surah Ibrahim, 8

Moses said, ‘If you were to be ungrateful, you and everyone on the earth, God is Rich Beyond Need, Praiseworthy.’

Look, this indicates the system of the dajjal(antichrist). The prophet Moses (pbuh) is foretelling the disaster that will happen in the End Times. His Mahdi is sufficient. Almighty God imposes His glory with the Mahdi, on the whole world, with His title of Jabbar.

Surah Ibrahim, 13

Those who were unbelievers said to their Messengers, ‘We will drive you from our land unless you return to our religion.’ Their Lord revealed to them, ‘We will destroy those who do wrong."

Some people ask what will happen in Syria. God says He will destroy the wicked. They ask what will happen in Egypt. God says He will destroy the wicked.

Surah Ibrahim, 14

We will leave you the land to live in after them. That is the reward of those who fear My station and fear My threat.’

And after them and before them. Because they are destroyed. What is this desire for the land of yours? The world. God tells us the place. The land. He says He will let them settle there. Definitely. “We will leave you the land to live in after them,” says God. For those who fear God, not those who love Him. “I love God,” some people say. When asked if they fear God, they respond; “No.” If you do not fear Him you will lose your senses. One’s free will is compromised. “I love God,” he says. And then how do you behave? In selfishness, egotism, greed and aggression. Can someone who fears God do those things? No. Can someone who fears God tell lies? No. But one can do it with love of God. “I love God,” he says. “So how can you do these things?” we ask. He says; “God will forgive me.” “How do you know?” we ask and he says; “Because I love God.” Look, he has no fear of God. He could do anything, may God forbid, because he has no fear of God. God says this is a reward of those who fear His threat. If people fear God, He regards them as believers and grants them blessings. God does not speak of those who love Him. In that case, God would say, “It is enough for them to love Me.” But God does not say that. God always insists on fear of Him. When one fears Him, the result is perfect moral values. Because one will not lie, behave basely, trick people or be proud and arrogant. How can someone who fears God be proud? But one can be both proud and arrogant if one does not fear God. One may also be disloyal. One says, “I love you very much.” Fine, may God be pleased. But do you have loyalty? No. Patience? No. Affection? No. Telling lies? Yes. Selfishness? Yes. Envy? Yes. Jealousy? Yes. You do all those; So? “I love you,” the person says. What is that love like? Like a huge void. It has no basis. But a person who fears God says, “I love you.” He is modest and loving and respectful and obedient and true-speaking. Loyalty is a blessing for him. That is real love then. A love that is full. The other love is empty.

Surah Ibrahim, 15

They [the prophets] asked for God's victory, and every obdurate tyrant failed.

Imams and mahdis. They asked for victory. Victory from God. In other words, they asked for the global reign of Islam, for the honor of Islam to reign across the world. For the moral values, beauty, love, esthetic understanding, conception of democracy and freedom of Islam to reign across the world; that is what victory means here. Then at the end, every obdurate tyrant failed. What does tyrant mean? Someone who tries to get results through force and arms. God does not call people who try to get results through love tyrants. God does not say that people who get results through reason and democracy are. Whom does He refer to as tyrants? Those who use force. God says that people who try to get results through the use of arms and violence, by terror, by frightening and bombing, by killing and murdering, through military means, are tyrants. If you send troops in against the innocent, you are a tyrant. If you send the police in against the innocent, you are a tyrant. But if you do everything according to the law, lawfully, you are not a tyrant. They send the troops in against the people in Syria, and that is tyranny. Is that democratic? No. They are behaving tyrannically. They crush people with troops. They crush them tyrannically, with the police, in Egypt. Is this lawful? No. The military and the police have a duty to protect justice, the law, the truth, goodness and beauty. They cannot do this by being a tool in the hands of despots. They asked for God’s victory, and every obdurate tyrant failed.

God is saying that they were destroyed.

Surah Ibrahim, 24

Do you do not see how God makes a metaphor of a good word: a good tree whose roots are firm and whose branches are in heaven?

...An excellent thing to say. Like a fine tree. With its roots firm and its branches in the sky. Passages of this kind also appear in the Torah and the Injil. So revelation does not change. The commandments of revelation do not change. We look at the Torah and the Injil and they say the same thing. Pure revelation and God’s commands never change, insha’Allah.

Surah Yunus, 36

Most of them follow nothing but conjecture. Conjecture is of no use whatsoever against the truth. God most certainly knows what they are doing.

It is all speculation with most of them. We look at the bigots – speculation. The extremists – conjecture. We look at the Darwinists, all speculation and guesswork. There need to be definite facts. What can one do with conjecture? Nothing at all. God certainly knows what they are up to.

 

Surah Yunus, 41

If they deny you, say, ‘I have my actions and you have your actions. You are not responsible for what I do and I am not responsible for what you do.’

If they oppose you with lies, which is what Darwinists, materialists and fundamentalists do. They are always lying and in opposition. "I have my actions and you have your actions." In other words, live and let live. What is this? It is the essence of democracy. They say there is no democracy in the Qur’an. “You are not responsible for what I do and I am not responsible for what you do.” He does not say He will punish you for things for which you are not responsible, God says that you are not responsible for the actions of others. This does not require any conflict.

Surah Yunus, 47

Every nation has a Messenger and when their Messenger comes everything is decided between them justly. They are not wronged.

Every community has a Messenger, a Mahdi, an envoy. What is the abjad value? 2021. It gives just one figure; 2021. The total value of the letters is 2021. Every nation. Muslims are a nation. “Every nation has a Messenger…” 2021 is when their Messenger will come. He will rule among them justly, and no injustice will be inflicted on them. Look, justice is what Almighty God concentrates on most of all. When the Mahdi (pbuh) comes, what will his main task be? To be just. A vast justice will rule the world. Justice is the greatest comfort. You will be ruined in the absence of justice.

Surah Yunus, 48

They say, ‘When will this promise be kept if you are telling the truth?’

 “When is the Mahdi (pbuh) coming? When is Jesus Messiah (pbuh) coming? Tell us,” they say. When will the Day of Reckoning come? Look, they are very interested. Not because they want to do anything, but they still want to know. They ask this out of an instinctive curiosity.
