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



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



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



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

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

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

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



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



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



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

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

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



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



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


New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (19 June 2015)


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

Surat Al-Baqarah, Verse: 72-73

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

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

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


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

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

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


New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (16 June 2015)



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

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

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



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

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



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

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

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



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

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

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

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



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

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


New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (12 June 2015)



Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 83

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

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

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


Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:84

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

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verses: 85 - 86

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

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

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


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

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 87

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 88

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

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


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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:89

"… Then he followed another way."

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:90

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:91

"Our knowledge encompasses all that happened to him."

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:92

"Then he followed a path."

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


Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:93

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

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

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

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


Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 94

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

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

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 95

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

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 96

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

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 97

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 98

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

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


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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 99

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 100

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:101

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

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 102

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

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:103-104

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 105

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

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


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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 106

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:107

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:108

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


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



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

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



New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (1 June 2015)



Bara'at night is the night between the 14th day of the month of Shaban and the 15th.

God points out to Bara'at night in Surat ad-Dukhan.

Surat Ad-Dukhan, Verse:1 "Ha, Mim." Here is a code. 'Ha' is a code, 'Mim' is a code.

Surat Ad-Dukhan, Verse:2  "By the Book which makes things clear"

Surat Ad-Dukhan, Verse:3 "We sent it down on a blessed night; We are constantly giving warning." That is the night.

Surat Ad-Dukhan, Verse 4: "During it (during that night) every wise decree is specified."

This night is said to be the Bara'at night, in the interpretations.

Just before Bara'at night, while Bediüzzaman was busy editing The Staff of Moses, a dove came to his window and looked at him. And Bediüzzaman says, "I asked 'Did you bring me good news?' Then he came inside," he says.

"He didn't even flinch, as if we had been old friends," he says. It landed on The Staff of Moses (the book). See, how sweet it is. It sat there for three hours. This is really wondrous. Actually this is a miracle, but such wondrous things are called as the wonders of saintly people. Obviously, it was not an ordinary dove. It was a special creature. How can it sit on a book for three hours? Bediuzzaman says, that he gave it bread and rice but it didn't eat.  This is impossible for a bird. It is an animal, I mean; it eats. But angels do not. " It stayed until the evening and then left," says Bediuzzaman. "Later it returned and stayed by my side until morning," says Bediüzzaman. That happened on the night of Bara'at. "It came nearby my head, while I lie in bed" he says. This incident is even more wondrous than wondrous. "It patted my head as if to say farewell," he says. "And then it flew away".

"On the second day, while I was deploring, it returned," he says. "It stayed with me for one more night" he says. "It means that this blessed bird wanted to congratulate me both for The Staff of Moses and for the Bara'at night, " he says. This is also a sign showing that Bediüzzaman is a blessed man. This really is a wondrous incident. People ask, "How does a miracle work?" This is how it works. Does it take away the free will of the mind? It does not. But when you think about it, it is an astonishing incident.


New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (31 May 2015)



In the Qur'an, God refers to "those who believe and do righteous actions." If one is righteous, if he does righteous actions, beauty instantly begins for him. Sincere. What does sincere mean? It means the one who experiences love in the most beautiful way. Actually, those who live love in the most beautiful way are the righteous ones. The word itself is refreshing anyway.


The names “Ar-Rahman” (The Most Gracious) and “Ar-Raheem” (The Most Merciful), for instance, are comforting. They only express love. But in the name "Al-Qahhar (The Subduer)", the expression of love is covert. Meaning; He subdues, crushes the unbelief, and saves the believer. God avenges the believers, the ones He loves. And that is a demonstration of love from God. The reason God crushes and subdues unbelief is His love for the believers. Also in that act, there is a covert love.


"Leaning on the shoulders of two figures," says our Prophet (saas) regarding the Prophet Jesus Messiah (pbuh). He says that it is how he saw the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) in a dream. "He was on a pilgrimage leaning on the shoulders of two figures," he says. "He was circumambulating the Kaaba in between two figures." One of them is Imam Mahdi. The other one is Hazrat Khidr (pbuh) for all I know. We might see them as two figures when we look at them with our worldly eyes, as Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) for example; but when the Prophet looks at them, he sees them as three people. He would see even more figures if he looks in a different way. Gabriel, Michael, the archangels, angels of Islam. They are with thousands of angels.


New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (28 May 2015)



It is not an ordinary trial. There is a serious trial, a serious training. It is not only a trial, it is just called that; it is actually a training.

Surat Al-Fajr, Verses:27-30

"O self at rest and at peace, return to your Lord, well-pleasing and well-pleased! Enter among My servants! Enter My Garden!"

For instance, we experience something and we endure it. But we strengthen our endurance, our patience, step by step. What is this? This is training. What is this training for? It is for Heaven. God chooses a handful of believers and trains them  here. If they were to go straight to Heaven, it would be the same situation as with the Prophet Adam (pbuh). So it does not happen this way. With this training, one attains his right mind, his personality settles in, he appreciates the blessings of God.

In Surah Fatir, verse, 37 God says, "... Did We not let you live long enough for anyone who was going to pay heed to pay heed?.. "

The time we are given is indeed enough. Enough for redemption and training. But people are clueless until the age of 30, as far as I see. It is a period of preparation towards maturity. Maturity comes after the age of 40. One starts to think deeper only  then. In fact, people tend to exaggerate. Good morality, patience, these are good things. But when one starts to exaggerate things, it becomes harder to be patient. They have to be tolerant then. Tolerance and patience are two separate things. Patience is an act of worship that is pleasurable, it is an act performed with ease and comfort. God tests us with a nice trial. In fact, it is, at the same time, a pleasant training. At the end of it comes maturity, kindness, a personality fit for the moral values of Heaven.


As far as I understand, death is not a kind of struggle for Muslims. It is as if you suddenly wake up from a dream. "With ease," says God. And He means with complete ease; He does not mean somewhat easy. Easy means zero hardship, according to the language of the Qur'an. Zero hardship. How so? A curtain suddenly opens while you are waiting, and you proceed, and then they take you in their arms. This is the meaning of ease. But is in the form of waking up. No itchiness, no headaches, no hunger, no sleeplessness, no exhaustion remains, everything suddenly becomes positive. All the negative energy in your body goes away. Suddenly, you feel completely positive.

But of course, if God had shown this to us before, all the effort, all the work related to our world would have been meaningless. In line with the justice of God, if the trial is lifted off for one person, the equality in this world is no more. God does not allow such a thing. Otherwise, one would really like to know what his death will be like; he would like to see a part of Heaven, Hell. God has shown Hell to Our Prophet (saas) but it is really difficult even for the Prophet (saas). He would be really scared and would suffer from it. Our Prophet (saas) is incredibly courageous, Masha'Allah. Who could be able to stand this? You visit the seven levels of Heaven, you are ascended to Miraj. I cannot even fathom what would happen to an ordinary person.  He doesn't even fall into despair.


In Surat Al-Isra, verse: 45, Almighty God says, "When you recite the Qur'an We place an obscuring veil between you and those who do not believe in Hereafter."   

You read to them, you explain to them as much as you want, but their minds are closed when it comes to Qur'an. For instance, they would comprehend it if I would read to them from a philosophy book, or a novel. However, miraculously, God says that He put a barrier in their minds against the Qur'an in particular, so that they would not comprehend. If I would read to them from Kafka, they would be able to comprehend it. They would do so excellently, precisely at that, but wouldn't be able to comprehend it if I were to read the Qur'an to them. They have a notably sharp, blasphemous intelligence but they can't comprehend the Qur'an.

God says that when the hypocrites leave the Prophet's (saas) side, they ask, 'What did he tell a little while ago?' This is really meaningful.

Surat Al-Isra, Verse: 46

We have placed covers on their hearts, preventing them from understanding it, and heaviness in their ears. When you mention your Lord alone in the Qur´an, they turn their backs and run away.

"We have placed covers on their hearts, preventing them from understanding it and heaviness in their ears…" See that it is not possible for them to comprehend it (the Qur'an). They aren't able to. They ponder over it but they are not able to comprehend it. This is a miracle. They are not able to understand. If you tell them about a medical book they would be able to understand it perfectly but they wouldn't understand the Qur'an.

"… When you mention your Lord alone in the Qur'an, they turn their backs and run away." "No way!" they say. "Don't tell me about it, I don't want to listen." But if you start up on a pointless topic, he will listen to you with undivided attention. They just can't tolerate the Qur'an. They would not shy away from any other book, especially if it is about a pointless subject. For instance, if you tell him that you will talk about the history of football in the Twentieth Century, he will listen to you all night long with excitement.

Surat al-Furqan, Verse:21

"Those who do not expect to meet Us say, 'Why have angels not been sent down to us? Why do we not see our Lord?' They have become arrogant about themselves and are excessively insolent."

It means that they have a great sense of superiority and arrogance within their souls. This makes them go crazy. I see this sense of superiority in a lot of people. It gives rise to snobbery, impertinence and the most terrible of them all, foolishness that will make them miserable. They tell lies one after another, like a fool. They talk irrationally, something even a fool won't do. They have an astounding anarchy in their souls, an insane anarchy. They have a tendency towards blasphemy. They like unbelievers, make too much of them in their heads and they think that something will come out of it. So, as they indulge themselves in unbelief, misfortune and trouble and nastiness come to them. Nothing else. What  come out of a swamp? A bog does. Nothing else.

Surat Al-Isra, Verse: 37

"Do not strut arrogantly about the earth. You will certainly never split the earth apart nor will you ever rival the mountains in height."

Surat Al-Furqan, Verse:21

"… They have become arrogant about themselves and are excessively insolent."

Pay attention; "...they are excessively insolent." What is it? Terrorism. Anarchy and unruliness. See that God informs us in the Qur'an of the roots of terrorism and anarchy. "They have become arrogant about themselves and are excessively insolent." What God means by insolence is rebellion, revolution. They are excessively insolent, in other words, disgraceful, infamous. I mean, irreligiousness and the lack of the fear of God lead most people to this.

Surat Al-Furqan, Verse:22

"On the Day they see the angels, there will be no good news that Day for the evildoers. They will say, 'There is an absolute ban'."

If you see an angel, it is because he will be bringing disasters upon you. Angels will appear when a believer dies, but they are already dead and their trial has ended. Angels only appear when the trial has ended, they are otherwise concealed.

Good news are banned for them (the evildoers). There is no good news that will make them happy. There won't be.

Surat Al-Furqan, Verse: 23

"We will advance on the actions they have done and make them scattered specks of dust."

They, the unbelievers, are not able to do anything. For example, the PKK wants to do some things, but God plagued them. Hitler tried to do some things and God plagued him. Mussolini, Stalin, Lenin; God plagued them all. God says that He will plague them all, that they will never succeed. He says that He will rise clouds of dust, make them like scattered specks of dust. He will destroy the Earth.

Those who are disbelievers will suffer a harsh punishment. But those who have faith and do right actions will receive forgiveness and an immense reward. [Surah Fatir, 7]

God always creates prosperity, beauty and goodness for Muslims.  Muslims do not encounter troublesome people. But God threatens unbelievers severely in the Qur’an, it is 70 or 80 percent threatening. It is because of the vehemence of the unbelievers. Indeed, God says they are cruel and ignorant. Angels ask God, “Why put on it one who will cause corruption on it and shed blood?“ Since a majority of people are like that, God uses threats heavily in the Qur’an. Whichever page you turn, there is always a threat. You will go to hell, you will be tormented; believe in God, believe in the afterlife, look at the signs, you should see signs of God. Look at the mountains, the seas, the plants, the animals. See my signs. Do not deny me. Don’t be unconscientious. Do not try to repudiate Me in spite of your own certainty, otherwise I will take revenge, says God. People say, “No way, God would not do that”, they say “God is merciful”. God takes revenge and then you see it. He destroyed the whole of Syria, He has destroyed Iraq, He destroyed Afghanistan, He destroyed Libya. God takes revenge; it is not that God does not take revenge. There is a bloodbath everywhere. When people associate partners with God, both innocent and ruthless people are involved in it, and they all suffer.



After he misguided the people of Hell, ‘I had no authority over you’ satan says to them, ‘except that I called you and you responded to me. I see what you do not see. Truly, I fear God’ he says.

What does ‘I fear God’ means? In other words, he says ‘I am a friend, I love God. But he expresses his love in a maniacal way. Satan is a typical maniac. There are such men; they say they love and they go and kill the people they love. Or sometimes they act crazily and attempt to commit suicide. Satan is representative of a maniac's mentality, he is representative of mania. Indeed, his every act is crazy. His speaks crazily. “I just called you” he says, you called him and you got him into trouble. Yes, you have no authority over people but you got them into trouble. He brags about it. He says he was not the only one, look they do it too. He does that vileness just to say so actually. You know there are people who say ‘Am I the only guilty person?” It is his (Satan's) mentality.
