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.

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." 

 

New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (31 October 2013)

 

Our Prophet (saas) has foretold Marmaray in his hadiths 

 

Our Prophet (saas) says; "And when the Qaim (Mahdi (pbuh)) appears," and he also says the name of city openly. He says; "...in Constantinople (Istanbul)." There is nothing vague about the city. "He will send his students and when his students come by the sea they will do something with their feet and the water will start running above them," he says. So where would water be? It will be above them. And where are they? They are underneath the sea. He says; "They go by while the water is running above them." And our Prophet (saas) explains where the water would be: "It will be running above their head," he says. Water will be above them and they will go by while water is running above them. He says; "...they do something with their feet." The vehicles used in Marmaray are operated by foot. When you press on the accelerator, it goes.

At first, when people read this, they have taken the second meaning of the words; you know how sentences are interpreted sometimes. It is said that they will be walking while they have water above them, while water runs above their heads.  That is what is meant there. 

Our Prophet (saas) says ; "...flags will be planted on both sides of this road." We've looked and saw that there are flags everywhere. And a mosque is mentioned in the hadiths. We've looked into it and there are two mosques on the exit. And our Prophet (saas) says; "...treasures will be excavated at the same time"; from under the ground. Alright, what do you have to say about this? 

If one does not look into the hadiths carefully, if one looks into them superficially, he cannot understand the true meaning in them. That is why in The Rays, Bediuzzaman says; "Our Prophet (saas) explains things in such a manner that normally one would not understand but once it is realized everyone understands what is meant." He says; "Those who are rich in knowledge, who have depth in knowledge, would say God knows the truth, these secret truths are referred to in here. Or else they would not be understood." 

For instance, look here, people are surprised; "They walk by while they have water running above their heads." That means the sea would be above them, the sea would be over them. At first people might think that they will be walking on water: Actually what is meant here is water being above them; they walk while they have water above them. 

Furthermore, the hadith says; "...they eat where they walk." I mean they are eating there. The hadith says; "...they gather there." Actually that tunnel underneath the sea is more like a facility. There is a facility there; there are people eating, gathering and there is everything there. People are amazed by these incidents, but now once these hadiths are realized, it is understood that this is all very reasonable.

Explanations of verses from Surat An-Na'ziat and Surah Yunus by Mr. Adnan Oktar 

 

Surat An-Nazi'at; Verse 18

And say: "Do you resolve to purify yourself."

This is the first thing he says. He should purify himself both materially and spiritually. He is a filthy person both materially and spiritually.

"I will guide you to your Lord "

 Jews say "we only preach religion to a certain nation, only to the children of Israel." That is not acceptable.

 

Surat An-Nazi'at: Verse 19

" I will guide you to your Lord so that you may fear Him."

"I will guide you to your Lord " This is a person from the Copt nation. He is not one of the children of Israel but the Prophet Moses (pbuh) calls him to Islam. Preaching religion is for everyone. Everyone can be preached to. Of course it is Islam at the moment because it is the true religion of our time. At that time, Judaism was the true religion. But Judaism is also a genuine Islamic religion. It was later distorted but if a Jew becomes a follower of Mohammad he would become a genuine Jew. Muslims are responsible of abiding by the true parts of the Torah anyway; a Muslim cannot deny the true parts of the Torah. Muslims abide by the true parts of the Gospel as well. ".. so that you may fear Him." Fear of God is the first thing demanded. He first says; "I will guide you to your Lord." I will draw you closer to God, increase your love for God and my aim is for you to have fear of God, he says.

 

Surat An-Nazi'at: Verse 20  

" Then he (Moses) showed him the Great Sign."

That means first people need to be persuaded that religion is the truth. What are we doing? We are explaining the miracles of the Qur'an, we are explaining the miracles of our Prophet (saas) which have been realized in the End Times, we are explaining Our Prophet (saas)'s  miracles related with the system of the Mahdi. That is because all of them have been realized to the point; that is wonderful. Right now those miracles of our Prophet (saas) are hidden by the people. They are hidden by some people that we know as great scholars.  That shows us the severity of the End Times. For instance, starting from the appearance of the comets, many important incidents like the Lunar and Solar eclipses in the month of Ramadan are hidden from the ummah right now. They are not talking about them on no account. Instead, they are talking about vain gossip and everything else. I mean they do not say "Some people might be talking about those, but they are lies," they simply avoid saying anything about the matter. They say; "Do not talk about it at all." That is because if those miracles are heard of, it will be understood that the system of the Mahdi is the truth. These are all interconnected. That is why they keep saying; "Do not talk about it at all." 

 

Surat An-Nazi'at, Verse 21 

"But he denied it and disobeyed."

Many people deny these and disobey right now as well. 

 

Surat An-Nazi'at, Verse 22  

".. and then he hastily backed away. "

I mean this time they start working against the Muslims. They back away, meaning they stop seeing Muslims. They decide to stop seeing them. They draw a rebuff, I mean they act grumpy. Or they want harm Muslims, they want to have them arrested and oppressed. 

 

Surat An-Nazi'at, Verse 23 

But then he rallied and called out:

These people always act as groups. They have their own supporters. They help one another. 

 

Surat An-Nazi'at, Verse 24 

".. saying, ´I am your Lord Most High!´      

 There is an official ideology, an official way of thinking. The state imposes its own faith. "There is no faith other than mine."

 

Surat An-Nazi'at, Verse 25 

"So God made an example of him seizing him with punishment in the next World and this world."

God gives two punishments: Being drowned in this world and the endless torment of hell in the Hereafter. 

 

Surat An-Nazi'at, Verse 26

"There is certainly instruction in that for those who fear. "

Those who fear God would draw a lesson from these, they would see the wisdom and profundity in them, they make sense out of them and reap their benefit and improve spiritually, says God. 

 

Surat An-Nazi'at, Verse 27

"Are you stronger in structure or is heaven? He built it."

For instance, we see this sometimes in Bediuzzaman's style and also in Sheikh Nazim's. In one of his statements he says; "Do not rebel to the skies." He says so in this manner because it is a known fact that the sky is from where the knowledge of God flows. 

 

Surat An-Nazi'at, Verse 28 

"He raised its vault high and made it level."

He says that He first created the atmosphere. Later on "He raised its vault high."  That is because as said in the verse, it was lie a smoke in the beginning; the earth was like  smoke. "He raised its vault high and made it level," He says. I mean He says; "Those clouds on the land are taken away; they have been raised to the sky." just like how science has ascertained. Exactly as science stated. "He raised its vault high and made it level." Meaning He defined how it would flow? How many layers there would be? What would be the structure of these seven layers? What would be their connection?  God says that He made it level. Almighty God created it just like this, and that completely complies with science. 

 

Surat An-Nazi'at; Verse 29

He darkened its night and brought forth its morning light.

God shows us that He specifically created the night. Night is not something that just occurred. God says, "I have darkened it specifically." ".. And brought forth its morning light." God says that He specifically created its morning light. First light is just a glimmer and then a very strong light is brought forth. If you look at the light of the Sun, you will see just how extraordinary it is. 

 

Surat An-Nazi'at; Verse 30 

After that He smoothed out the earth.

Look, just like science explained. In the beginning everywhere was covered with smoke. Everywhere was covered with water. That is also mentioned in the Torah. The Torah said; "The universe was covered with water all over. Later on the lands appeared." The Qur'an says the atmosphere was  formed later on and its layers were formed. Afterwards, the lands appeared; "After that He smoothed out the earth." Plants, trees and mountains followed. 

 

Surat An-Nazi'at; Verse 31 

".. and brought forth from it its water and its pastureland."

Later on rain starts to fall. First "water" and then its "pastureland"; God says, “I created the plants” later on. That is in complete compliance with science.

 

Surat An-Nazi'at; Verse 32 

".. and made the mountains firm."

God says "I have created the mountains with those movements of the lands". "I have made the mountains firm," He says. That is exactly as science explains, you see the order in this, don't you? The order of the happenings is exactly the same as the order explained by science.  

 

Surat An-Nazi'at; Verse 33  

".. for you and for your livestock to enjoy."

Later on, God mentions the animals. God says; "That is why I created them," for animals to benefit from them. Later on Almighty God mentions the creation of animals. 

 

Surat An-Nazi'at; Verse 34

"When the Great Calamity comes: "

God mentions the Last Day right after Creation. He says; "First I create." Later on He says; "I will rip everything apart in the Last Day, I will smash them all."  He is the One Who brings the Great Calamity. He destroys plants, He destroys the lands, the seas and He destroys everything with it. 

 

Surat An-Nazi'at; Verse 35

".. that Day man will remember what he has striven for.."

So they say, "I have done this is vain." They say, "I have remained away from God for no reason, I have turned my back on the Qur'an in vain."  May God forbid.

 

Surah Yunus; Verse 90

"We brought the tribe of Israel across the sea and Pharaoh and his troops pursued them out of tyranny and enmity. Then, when he was on the point of drowning, he said, 'I believe that there is no god but Him in whom the tribe of Israel believe. I am one of the Muslims'."

“(The Pharaoh) ...he said, 'I believe that there is no god but Him in whom the tribe of Israel believe. I am one of the Muslims' ”.  Meaning "I accept  God and the Prophets that the Prophet Moses (pbuh) described. I accept religion. "

 

Surah Yunus; Verse 91

"What, now! When previously you rebelled and were one of the corrupters?"

" What, now! When previously you rebelled and were one of the corrupters? " He did that many times, not just three times, five times or ten times. ".. you were one of the corrupters," says God. "You were constantly causing mischief," He says.   

 

Surah Yunus; Verse 92

"Today We will preserve your body so you can be a Sign for people who come after you. Surely many people are heedless of Our Signs."

God says; "Today We will preserve your body so you can be a Sign for people who come after you. Surely many people are heedless of Our Signs." So his body is a Sign as well. It is a Sign from God. It has been preserved mummified and it will remain like that as a Sign until the Last Day. But look; God calls it a "Sign." That makes all sorts of evidence, all scientific evidence, everything that proves God, everything that explains the Qur'an, a Sign.  God says; "a Sign."

Surely many people are heedless of our Signs. Why? That is because they submit to God. That is what God commands. He says; "You will not believe." And they cannot. God says; "You will believe" and those do. He says "You will believe" to the Mahdi (pbuh). He says; "You will take the helm of the Muslims and you will be their leader." And He says; "You will help the Mahdi (pbuh)" to the Prophet Jesus (pbuh). And He says; "You will take the helm of the Christian world." Nothing contrary to this could ever happen. God says; "But I will inflict dajjals upon you." The dajjals are unable to say; "I don't want this, I will not act as a dajjal." Almighty God lists them all one by one and says; "You will be hypocrites. And you will struggle against the Mahdi (pbuh)." And it is not possible for them to say; "No I won't." They would, without fail,   struggle against the Mahdi . There will also be some hypocrites among the students of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) as well. God tells them to be hypocrites one by one. And all of them become hypocrites. God says; "And I will put you all to  hell." And He puts them in hell.

You will ask, what is this all about? This is the Secret Knowledge. This is Ilm Al-Ladun. If we were to go deeper, we will come across a whole different world and of course, we are not able to go even deeper; but those who can have understood it quite clearly as we have explained it from time to time. I have explained it quite clearly. It is not possible to say; "I do not get it." It is not possible to say; "I did not realize it." Insha'Allah. That is because the hypocrite of each man of cause is created within his mind. You wouldn't know their body outside. You only are responsible of knowing what you are shown. For instance, when a child dies, the one inside your mind dies. You wouldn't know the child outside. That is the knowledge of God. That is Ilm Al-Ladun. That is the secret knowledge. 

 

Surah Yunus; Verse 100

"No self can have faith except with God's permission. He places a blight on those who do not use their intellect."

No self can have faith except with God's permission. That is the Ilm Al-Ladun. "I command you and you have faith, I command you and you don't," says God. But He also says; "I will put those who have faith in  Heaven and those who don't in Hell." That is Ilm Al-Ladun. 

 

Surah Yunus; Verse 101

"Say: 'Look at what there is in the heavens and on the earth.´ But Signs and warnings are of no avail to people who have no faith."

Say; "Look at what there is in the heavens and on the earth." You will look at them with a microscope, with a telescope with everything you've got. God says; "Examine all the details in the heavens and on the earth." "But Signs and warnings are of no avail to people who have no faith."  God says; "You will see Signs when you examine these." For instance, in the structure of molecules, in the structure of  atoms, in the Heavens and everywhere else you will see God's Signs. You will see clear Signs. They are explicitly seen. The paleontological evidence is out in the open, the structure of the cell is out in the open, the structure of the nerves, the structure of vacuoles  and everything else. Everything leaves one amazed, the details take one's breath away. That is why God says; "Signs and warnings." God says that we are seeing them all very clearly. "...and warnings." For instance, we are explaining the Truth day and night on television. "...they are of no avail" but to whom? To those who have no faith. God says; "If I command them not to have faith, it would have no effect on them even if you explain things to them repeatedly." They have to carry the Spirit of God, they have to be open minded, they have to be people of the true way or else no matter how much you explain, it wouldn't have any effect on them.  

 

New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (20 October 2013)

 

The mind becomes clearer when God is praised, otherwise a person's brain would become numb

Look, God says; "And Zakariyya, when he called out to his Lord, 'My Lord, do not leave me on my own'."  How does he look for a solution for this? With God.  See what he says: ".. do not leave me on my own," that is a sign of wisdom.  And he praises God saying: "You are the Best of Inheritors." Now, when one praises God, when one submits to God, his mind becomes clearer: Otherwise a person's brain would become numb. It would become abnormal. When God is praised the pressure in  one's brain would be relieved. When one prays to God the pressure in his brain would be relieved. Otherwise his brain would  shut down. The brain closes its doors. One loses sanity and becomes insane. It makes one sick. They get themselves into trouble that would bring them new kinds of diseases. They go and say it here and there, and become overwhelmed with grief. They try and make others upset and get themselves in all sorts of different troubles. 

 

Being in a race in good deeds is a sign of wisdom

 "We responded to him.." God always responds to prays. See? It is all from God. ".. and gave him Yahya (John), restoring for him his wife's fertility." So God says 'I can change your health if I like, I can make you younger and more beautiful.'

".. They outdid one another in good actions.." Being in a race of good actions is a sign of wisdom. How do we do that for instance? We have written a book and the other one says, "I will write two," and the other says, "I will write three," while the other one says, "I will write four." They are outdoing one another in good actions. That opens one's mind. Being in a race in good deeds, outdoing each other in good actions; competing with each other in that sense opens one's mind. It brings about abundance, radiance and beauty. "..  calling out to Us in yearning and in awe, and humbling themselves to Us." Look; there is hope in this, not desperation. And they are in awe, humbling themselves to God. One needs to fear God and be in awe. It is not acceptable not to be in awe and not fearing God.

 

Explanations from Surat Al-Anbiya and Surat Al-Kahf by Mr. Adnan Oktar

Surat Al-Anbiya; Verse 91   

And she (Maryam) who protected her private parts. We breathed into her some of Our Spirit and made her and her son a Sign for all the worlds. 

 

" And she (Maryam) who protected her private parts. We breathed into her some of Our Spirit," says God. That is the  Spirit of God. That means this is not the case for everyone. God does that for those He wills. God mentions women's protecting their private parts as a beauty and superiority and as a sign of wisdom.  So a woman who has intercourse with men in an unlawful manner would lose her purity; but if one does so with her lawful spouse, it would be like a religious service. "We breathed into her some of Our Spirit and made her and her son a Sign for all the worlds." That means her son, Jesus Messiah, is an example, a beauty to the whole world. 

 

Surat Al-Anbiya, Verse 92

"This nation of yours is one nation and I am your Lord, so worship Me."

 

"This nation of yours is one nation.."  So God says that our nation should not be divided into religious communities, sects. It is one nation. ".. and I am your Lord, so worship Me."

 

Surat Al-Anbiya, Verse 93

"But they disagreed and split into different sects. Each one will return to Us." 

 

"But they disagreed and split into different sects"; they split into different sects, communities, different sections. Just like it is right now, look how God explains this corruption of the End Times in such detail in the Qur'an.

The portents of the End Times are explained in the Qur'an, sometimes in a concealed, and sometimes in an explicit manner. For instance, this is a portent of the End Times that has been referred to in a concealed manner: That is because this was not the case in the time of our Prophet (saas). Muslims did not disagree and split into different sects, they were in unity. There was one single nation. There were no different sects, communities or orders. When asked; "Where are the Muslims?" they were pointed out altogether. There was one single Muslim group. They have had their imam; our Prophet (saas). They were one single group of Muslims. However, in reference to the End Times God says; "But they disagreed and split into different sects." Some of them on one side, some on the other side. "Each one will return to US," says God.

 

Surat Al-Kahf; Verse 1 

"Praise belongs to God Who has sent down the Book to His servant and has put no crookedness in it."

There is no crookedness, no shortcoming, no conflict in the Qur'an: That is a miracle. The Qur'an does not contravene science, verses do not contravene with other verses, it doesn't contravene the historical course of events. All the information given is confirmed in time. That is the miracle of the Qur'an, Alhamdulillah. 

 

Surat Al-Kahf; Verse 2

"It is straight, to warn of violent force direct from Him, and to give the good news to Muslims, those who do right actions, that for them there is an excellent reward."

The Qur'an is straight, there are no lies in it. "..to warn of violent force direct from Him, and to give the good news to Muslims, those who do right actions.." God warns people but also gives good news to Muslims. ".. to give the good news to Muslims, those who do right actions, that for them there is an excellent reward." God gives good news to Muslims. 

 

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse 3

"..  a place in which they will remain for ever,"

That is Heaven. There is an instinct for desiring the infinity in humans. That is the strongest instinct they have. God says that Muslims will remain in Heaven forever. 

 

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse 4 

".. and to warn those who say God has a son."

So that means God also warns the Christians. 

 

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse 5  

"They have no knowledge of this, neither they nor their fathers. It is a monstrous utterance which has issued from their mouths. What they say is nothing but a lie."

"They have no knowledge of this, neither they nor their fathers." There is no rhyme or reason for such a claim. Their fathers did not have such knowledge and there is no such thing in the Torah either.  God says; "...neither they nor their fathers," have knowledge of this says God. "It is a monstrous utterance which has issued from their mouths. What they say is nothing but a lie." God says that they are lying and that there is no such thing. 

 

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse 6

"Perhaps you may destroy yourself with grief, chasing after them, if they do not have faith in these words. "

If people with this personality, this mentality, do not believe in the Qur'an  "Perhaps you may destroy yourself with grief chasing after them." Our Prophet (saas) was grieving a lot and was very disturbed by this but God forbids it to our Prophet (saas). 

 

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse 7

"We made everything on the earth adornment for it so that We could test them to see whose actions are the best."

There is a good action and there is one even better. There is always looking for the most of God's good pleasure in everything, insha'Allah. 

 

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse 9

"Do you consider that the Companions of the Cave and Ar-Raqim were one of the most remarkable of Our Signs?"

So that means they are remarkable: The Companions of the Cave and Ar-Raqim. The Companions of Ar-Raqim are always somewhat concealed, only the Companions of the Cave are talked about. Actually there are two separate groups here; there are also the Companions of Ar-Raqim. 

 

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse 10 

"When the young men took refuge in the cave and said, 'Our Lord, give us mercy directly from You and open the way for us to right guidance in our situation'. " 

"...the young men," that means all of them are young; both the Companions of Ar-Raqim and the Companions of the Cave consist of young people  but generally the Companions of the Cave are more emphasized. The Companions of Ar-Raqim are not mentioned that much. The Companions of Ar-Raqim refer to the students  of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and the Companions of Al-Kahf refer to the students of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). "When the young men took refuge in the cave and said, 'Our Lord, give us mercy directly from You and open the way for us to right guidance in our situation'." This means that they are altogether in the cave, they are always together. They are in unity. 

 

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse 11 

"So We sealed their ears with sleep in the cave for a number of years."

That means they are living but they are living in a state of sleep. We are in a state of sleep right now as well. Life is a sort of sleep and we are dreaming. When we die, we will be awakening from this sleep. 

 

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse 12 

"Then We woke them up again so that We might see which of the two groups would better calculate the time they had stayed there."

 

"...which of the two groups," God mentions two groups, not one group. It would be very odd to pretend not to understand this. "Then we woke them up again so that We might see which of the two groups would better calculate the time they had stayed there." Both the Companions of Ar-Raqim and the Companions of the Cave are sleeping. Both will be woken up. The Prophet Jesus Messiah (pbuh) is in sort of a spiritual sleep in the Sight of God right now. He has been taken to the Sight of God in a state of sleep. 

 

Surat Al- Kahf, Verse 13

"We will relate their story to you with truth. They were young men who had faith in their Lord and We increased them in guidance."

Guidance; the system of the Mahdi is the Manifestation of God's Name Al-Hadi (The Guide).

 

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse 14 

"We fortified their hearts when they stood up and said, 'Our Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth and We will not call on any god apart from Him. We would in that case have uttered an abomination. "

"We fortified their hearts," that is a characteristic of the students of the Mahdi; fortitude and determination. Bediuzzaman says patience and determination are their two main characteristics .  "We fortified their hearts." When they stood up against the system of the dajjal (antichrist) ".. when they stood up and said; "Our Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth and we will not call on any god apart from Him." We do not believe in Darwinism or materialism.  "We would in that case (if we say anything otherwise) have uttered an abomination." That would not be reasonable, that would not be right; it would be wrong. 

  

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse 15 

" These people of ours have taken gods apart from Him. Why do they not produce a clear authority concerning them? Who could do greater wrong than someone who invents a lie against God? "

"These people of ours," these people in our community, "...have taken gods apart from Him." That means that in the End Times people will take gods apart from God, they will believe in Darwinism and materialism. "Why do they not produce a clear authority concerning them?" We, for instance, have been asking for evidence and they fail to produce any, insha'Allah. God says; "Who could do greater wrong than someone who invents a lie against God?"  God says that is a grave cruelty. 

 

Surat Al Kahf, Verse 25 

"They stayed in their Cave for three hundred years and added nine. "

Here, there is a reference to the number of the students of Hazrat Mahdi(pbuh). There is an activity going on for the last 300 years. Until 1506 with the Hijri calendar, when we look at the total, everything will take place and come to an end in these last 300 years until 1506. These developments will take place in the last 300 years: Both the corruption and the correction will take place in these 300 years. "...and added nine (years)"

 

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse 26 

"Say: 'God knows best how long they stayed. The Unseen of the heavens and the earth belongs to Him. How perfectly He sees, how well He hears! They have no protector apart from Him. Nor does He share His rule with anyone'."  

"Say; 'God knows best how long they stayed'." That means God says that there is no knowledge to state that they have stayed there 309 years. "The Unseen of the heavens and the earth belongs to Him. How perfectly He sees, how well He hears! They have no protector apart from Him." Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and his students; Muslims have no protector apart from God either. "Nor does He share His rule with anyone." God says, when Almighty God wills something, He does that. 

 

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse 27  

"Recite what has been revealed to you of your Lord´s Book. No one can change His Words. You will never find any safe haven apart from Him. "

"Recite what has been revealed to you of your Lord's Book." That means do not step outside the Book, act only according to the Qur'an.  "Recite what has been revealed to you of your Lord's Book. No one can change His Words."  The Qur'an will never change until the Last Day. Some people say, "The Qur'an has changed," when God says, "It will not change."  Furthermore, radicals will not be able to change the command of God by making additions to the Qur'an. That is also what this verse means. "No one can change His Words." Islam will prevail just as God willed it, just like it was in the time of the Companions of our Prophet (saas). There is a reference here. "You will never find any save haven apart from Him." Apart from God, there is no safe haven to protect Muslims. 

 

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse 28

"Restrain yourself patiently with those who call on their Lord morning and evening, desiring His face. Do not turn your eyes from them, desiring the attractions of this world. And do not obey someone whose heart We have made neglectful of Our remembrance and who follows his own whims and desires and whose life has transgressed all bounds. "

"Restrain yourself patiently with those who call on their Lord morning and evening, desiring His face." Our Prophet (saas) performed his prayers once in the morning and once in the evening. This was how it was at first. They were performing two rakat prayers, once in the morning and once in the evening; that was the case for years. Later on it changed. "Restrain yourself patiently with those who call on their Lord." Restrain yourself with those who perform their prayers and pray. "Do not turn your eyes from them, desiring the attractions of this world." Circles  of friends, possessions, money, food, drinks, wealth, fame. "Do not turn your eyes from them, desiring the attractions of this world." Your eyes should always be on the Muslims. That means do not separate your way from them, be with them, see them all the time, keep them constantly in your sight. It means loving them by seeing them. For instance, the Companions of our Prophet (saas) used to see our Prophet (saas) every single day. They did not disappear and go away from time to time. They only left his side for very imperative reasons.  Otherwise they were all with him all the time. When they looked at his eyes, when they looked at his face, they found abundance and relief. It would be enough for them to be eye-to-eye with him just for two seconds. They would be taking their remedy from his eyes, that spiritual remedy. "And do not obey someone whose heart We have made neglectful of Our remembrance and who follows his own desires and whose life has transgressed all bounds.'' That means, do not leave Muslims by forming friendships with those who have forgotten God, who have neglected the Qur'an, with those who do not live by Islam. Your own circle of friends, those you should commit to, are Muslims only.  God says "show your love to them."

There will be many people who will leave the side of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). Why? Because of their love this world and the attractions of this world. Our Prophet (saas) says that there will be three big break-outs. He even defines those as "quakes". He says that "no one other than the sincere Muslims will remain in Medina." Only genuine Muslims will remain by his side. 

 

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse 29:  

"Say: 'It is the truth from your Lord; so let whoever wishes have faith and whoever wishes be in disbelief.'  We have prepared for the wrongdoers a Fire whose billowing walls of smoke will hem them in. If they call for help, they will be helped with water like seething molten brass, frying their faces. What a noxious drink! What an evil repose! "

"Say; "It is the truth from your Lord; so let whoever wishes have faith and whoever wishes be in disbelief." Look, this is another reflection of democracy, of freedom of thought in this verse. They are all free: There is no compulsion. "We have prepared for the wrongdoers a Fire.." the punishment is in the Hereafter, there is no intervention in this world. There is no punishment in this world. "We have prepared for the wrongdoers a Fire whose billowing walls of smoke will hem them in. If they call for help, they will be helped with water like seething molten brass, frying their faces." That is a different kind of water, a heavy water. "What a noxious drink! What an evil repose!" God explains the types of torments that they will suffer through to scare those who rebel against Him.  We do not know what this is for instance. God says; "...they will be helped with water like seething molten brass frying their faces." They are suffering in pain when this water is poured upon them but these people are also speaking in hell. Furthermore, they even dare to act tactless in that environment. This is not like any place we know; it is not like what we might visualize in our minds, it is a different place which makes people unhappy and disturbed. 

 

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse 31 

"They will have Gardens of Eden with rivers flowing under them. They will be adorned in them with bracelets made of gold and wear green garments made of the finest silk and rich brocade, reclining there on couches under canopies. What an excellent reward! What a wonderful repose! "

"They will have Gardens of Eden with rivers flowing under them. They will be adorned in them with bracelets made of gold and wear green garments made of the finest silk and rich brocade.." Look, do you see the quality of the world God wants for Muslims? There are good bracelets, green garments made of the finest silk and rich brocade, they are all high quality. ".. reclining there on couches under canopies." These are not ordinary things to sit on, these are couches under canopies. Some people say we should sit on the floor, yet God mentions couches under canopies. Alright, you may sit on the floor if you feel like it, but that can never be imperative.  

 

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

 

THE QUR'AN IS ALSO THE BOOK OF BEING REASONABLE

Certain topics are explained over and over in the Qur'an because a unique purity prevails in the Qur'an. There is no intricate system explained in the Qur'an, it is pure and simple. There are repetitions in more than half of the Qur'an and that is to have a better understanding of the Qur'an. Consequently God explains the rules in a very organized and simple manner. When you put those rules into practice you become very wise and very consistent;  otherwise these people we sometimes come across in the streets, people we sometimes see in some certain places come up; people crying, people in sorrow, people shouting and screaming, people who are disloyal, people who can never trust anyone, people who constantly ruin themselves with  intense suspicions, people who harm the society they are living in.

That is why people who read the Qur'an should know that in every single verse they read, they would have a better understanding of the profundity of reason. This is also valid for the Torah and that is why Jews are reading the Torah day and night. Doing that improves one's morality and personality.  

 

New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (11 October 2013)

 

God is the One Who teaches compassion and mercy to people 

Sometimes children burn to death as well. Why do you only stress on people starving to death? Or sometimes an avalanche falls or earthquakes happen and children die underneath the wreckage.

Actually some people do not know what kind of a system God created. They are completely unaware that they are simply interacting with a screen inside their brains. They are unaware that they are merely responding to the flow of information inside their brains. They are unaware that the feelings of touch, seeing, hearing, thinking and all other sorts of feelings are constantly being poured upon them specifically through a channel.

One looks and sees that there is something about fifty meters away. He says; "There is a child there." Actually if you were to grasp the secret knowledge therein, you would have instantly understood the whole matter. God might show you a hundred people, but may be only fifty among them might be humans, and the rest might be merely images, and you wouldn't know; you wouldn't know which one is what. You might think that what you see is a person, but it might actually be something else. You might think what you see is something else and it might be a person. For instance, one might think that something is simply something like furniture when actually it is an individual. One might think that what he sees is a person when actually it is not. 

For instance, while you are  dreaming, you see a child burning and you run vigorously to save him. You even dive into the fire just to save that child, right? And you take that child out of that fire, burn yourself and end up in the hospital but the child still dies. And in your dream you say; "What a pity! That child has died and I am wounded!" Later on you wake up and see there is no ambulance, no fire and no child. 

God knows what to do. Do not attempt to teach mercy to God: God is the One Who teaches you what mercy is. God is the One Who teaches you what compassion is.  And then you step up and attempt to teach mercy to God; you wouldn't have known mercy or compassion if God hadn't taught you about those anyway. God teaches you all those things and you attempt to make comments about God with what God shows you. God is the One Who shows you everything, every last bit of this image every single second.
