EXPLANATIONS OF VERSES FROM SURAT AL-KAHF

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 83

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

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

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:84

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

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verses: 85 - 86

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 87

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 88

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

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

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:89

"… Then he followed another way."

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:90

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:91

"Our knowledge encompasses all that happened to him."

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:92

"Then he followed a path."

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:93

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

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

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

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 94

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

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

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 95

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

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 96

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

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 97

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 98

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

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

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 99

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 100

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:101

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

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 102

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

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:103-104

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 105

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

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

ALL THE DEEDS OF THE UNBELIEVERS WILL BECOME WORTHLESS

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse: 106

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:107

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

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

Surat Al-Kahf, Verse:108

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

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

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

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

THE DOVE THAT CAME TO HAZRET BEDIUZZAMAN ON  BARA'AT NIGHT

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)

 

A SINCERE PERSON IS ONE WHO EXPERIENCES LOVE IN THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WAY

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.

THERE IS A HIDDEN STATEMENT OF LOVE IN THE NAME OF THE GOD, AL-QAHHAR (THE CRUSHER, THE SUBDUER)

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.

OUR PROPHET (SAAS) INFORMS US THAT THE PROPHET JESUS (PBUH) WILL PILGRIMAGE BETWEEN TWO FIGURES

"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.

THE TRIAL GOD CREATES IS VERY EXTENSIVE

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.

DEATH IS EASY FOR  MUSLIMS

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 THE HEART OF UNBELIEVERS THERE IS A BARRIER AGAINST QUR'AN

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.

IT IS ALWAYS  EGOCENTRISM AND DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR THAT CAUSES PROBLEMS FOR PEOPLE

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.

GOD THREATENS UNBELIEVERS SEVERELY IN THE QUR’AN

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.

 

SATAN IS REPRESENTATIVE OF A MANIACAL MENTALITY

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.

EXPLANATIONS OF VERSES FROM SURAT AT-TUR

I seek refuge in God from satan, in the name of God All-Compassionate and All-Merciful.

Surat At-Tur, Verse:1

"By the Mount (Tur)."

'Tur' means mountain as you know.

Surat At-Tur, Verses: 2-3

"…and an Inscribed Book on an Unfurled Scroll…"

Usually, it is the Torah that is inscribed in an unfurled scroll. The Qur'an might also have been inscribed in fine parchment during those times.

Surat At-Tur, Verse: 4

"…by the Visited House…"

That is a nicely decorated house.

Surat At-Tur, Verse: 5

 "…by the Raised Canopy…"

People indeed like houses with high ceilings, raised roofs; they feel entrapped otherwise.

Surat At-Tur, Verse: 6

"…by the Overflowing Ocean…"

This is an incident that will take place on the Last Day. Fiery magma will erupt form underneath the sea. It can be deduced from the verses anyway.

Surat At-Tur, Verse:7

"…your Lord´s punishment will certainly take place."

In other words, the Last Day.

Surat At-Tur, Verse: 8

"No one can ward it off."

Because it is impossible to prevent it from happening.

 

Surat At-Tur, Verse: 9

"On the Day when heaven sways to and fro."

The clouds disperse; the sky is blue now but when the clouds disperse, the darkness of space will be seen.

Surat At-Tur, Verse: 10

"…and the mountains shift about…"

The mountains start to move with the impact from earthquakes. The mountain here will pass on, and the other mountain there will shift about. And as the earth quakes, they all begin to dissolve.

God already says in the verse that they will crumble into dust. Moreover, it is also a scientific fact that the mountains can slide during massive earthquakes. However, there is no recorded incident. So in a sense, it is a miracle that the Qur'an informs us of this. That is because this is only known and estimated scientifically. Otherwise, there is no recorded incident in history about a mountain sliding as a result of earthquakes. All the mountains are in their original places. Their crumbling into dust is not anything that has been seen before either, it, too, will happen during the Last Day. So it is a miracle that the Qur'an tells us about these beforehand.

IT IS A CRIME OF CONSCIENCE  NOT TO THINK ON THE WONDERS GOD CREATED

Surat At-Tur, Verse:11

"…woe that Day to the deniers…"

God regards denial as a lack of conscience. That is because, a reasonable person should ask, "Who created this universe?"  "What is this all about?" Lets imagine a person in a dark room. There are crickets, bugs, birds in there. He should be surprised and think, "Who sees all this view?", "Who hears all these sounds?" If he is not interested in any of these, then he has no conscience. It is not only a threat saying, "heed the Qur'an." The reason for the statement is to ask, "How can you not see God? How can you not see His signs? How can you be without conscience? Thus, you will be punished." There are squirrels, trees, birds. Their molecular structures were unknown; the micro-structure of the world, the cosmos were unknown  then. What are those living beings in a micro-structure? What is the macro structure of space? These things were unknown. Once they were examined, all sorts of incredible facts came to light. It has been discovered that  space is built upon a mathematical balance. Scientists examined the cell and they saw that it is unfathomable.

In the 191st verse of Surah Al-Imran, God says: "Those who remember God, standing, sitting and lying on their sides, and reflect on the creation of the heavens and the earth: 'Our Lord, You have not created this for nothing. Glory be to You! So safeguard us from the punishment of the Fire'."

This is the source of the actual sin. Otherwise, it is not just about reading the Qur'an and not believing in it and going to Hell. For example, here we have a bird named the 'zebra finch' which is downright fancy. Fancy animals recognize and mate with each other. Then out comes an egg, and the bird sits on it, incubate. Out of the egg comes a bird, just like its parents. There is a perfect order. What is a bird doing inside an egg? An egg is something juicy. But then, you see that inside it forms a squint-eyed bird with its wings and whatnot. It is as if this is happening like in 'Alice in Wonderland'. Now, if they say, "I don't care" even after witnessing all these things, then they are committing a sin, there is no other explanation.

MIRAJ IS A PLEASANT GIFT FROM GOD TO OUR PROPHET (SAAS)

Miraj is an amazing, a beautiful incident. A gift from God to our Prophet (saas). How nice it is for him to witness many wonders. He sees Hell but Heaven is veiled. He sees all the prophets. All of these are wonderful. He sees Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and praises him.

Surat Al-Isra, Verse:1

Glory be to Him Who took His servant on a journey by night from the Masjid al-Haram to the Masjid al-Aqsa, whose surroundings We have blessed, in order to show him some of Our Signs. He is the All-Hearing, the All-Seeing.

 

"Glory be to Him Who took His servant on a journey by night from the Masjid al-Haram to the Masjid al-Aqsa, whose surroundings We have blessed…" So, the surroundings of the Masjid al Aqsa are blessed. "...in order to show him some of Our Signs." In other words to show him the wonders, significant matters, Hell, the prophets, Mahdi (pbuh). Indeed, He is All-Hearing, All-Seeing.

Surat An-Najm, Verse: 7

"…there on the highest horizon."

There on the highest horizon was the archangel Gabriel (pbuh)

Surat An-Najm, Verse: 8

"Then he drew near and hung suspended."

His wings cover the whole horizon.

Surat An-Najm, Verse: 9

"He was two bow-lengths away or even closer."

Surat An-Najm, Verse: 10

"Then He revealed to His slave what He revealed."

This was the first revelation.

Surat An-Najm, Verse: 11

"His heart did not lie about what he saw."

Surat An-Najm, Verse: 12

"What! Do you dispute with him about what he saw?"

The polytheists, the hypocrites and the weak-minded dispute with the Prophet (saas) by then. They do not believe  him.

Surat An-Najm, Verse:13

"He saw him again another time."

He sees him twice.

Surat An-Najm, Verse: 14

"…by the Lote-tree of the Final Limit…"

Surat An-Najm, Verse: 15

"… beside which is the Garden of Refuge…"

But the Garden of Refuge is not shown to him.

Surat An-Najm, Verse: 16

"…when that which covered the Lote-tree covered it."

Surat An-Najm, Verse: 17

"His eye did not waver nor did he look away."

That is to say that he did not look at Heaven. Heaven is veiled for him. Our Prophet (saas) didn't look at it, anyway.

Surat An-Najm, Verse: 18

"He saw some of the Greatest Signs of his Lord."

The idolaters did not believe that our Prophet (saas) visited the Masjid al- Aqsa. Our Prophet (saas) had not visited the Masjid al- Aqsa until that day, but he described to them Masjid al- Aqsa in great detail. The ones who knew the place well were convinced right then and there.

IT IS A MIRACLE THAT GOD CREATED SOMETHING CALLED "BEING SPOILED"

Surat Al-Anfal, Verse:47

"Do not be like those who left their homes in arrogance, showing off to people and barring them from the way of God — God encompasses what they do "

It is surprising how prosperity spoils people and causes them to be arrogant.  After all, it is only a bowl of food they eat, but oddly enough, they become arrogant and go astray. It is a miracle. Once a normal man, he goes insane and becomes spoiled. People are led astray by prosperity. God tells our Prophet (saas) that the reason they turned against him is that he had made them rich, that he took care of them, that he offered them great opportunities and prosperity. This is why they are spoiled and arrogant. Also here in this verse God says that they are arrogant; "...who left their homes in arrogance, showing off to people and barring them from the way of God..."  They are boastful and they show off whereas both you and the ones you show off to are going to die eventually. What is it that you are boastful about? A few clothes, some  jewelry, maybe a car or a phone, etc. You will leave them all behind when you enter your grave. Your iPhone and your computer lies on the desk while you lie underground; you only have a shroud [in the grave]. It is a miracle that God created such arrogance and pertness. For instance, once a normal man, he becomes spoiled and arrogant, and demonstrates a new personality. You ask what has happened to him and they say, "He got spoiled." You ask, "Wasn't he the same guy from before?" They answer, "Yes he was; he was a normal, rational man but he is so arrogant now." Moreover, he goes astray; that's the next level. What does he do then? He shows off to people. 

Being spoiled, going astray and showing off are all intertwined. He strikes an attitude with poor people. As a matter of fact, both you and all the others you see are in need. You will all die eventually. Pull yourself together. Ultimately, you are made of flesh and bone. What if you wear clothes? So what if you have a computer, an expensive phone? You will die because you are of flesh and bone, they will put you in a grave, and you will fall into pieces and rot away. Why would you become spoiled? Why would you go astray? Why would you show off? God warns us that these people deviate us from the path of God. For example, they prevent Muslims from speaking, from making announcements; they prevent Islam from spreading, they set a bad example for Muslims by violating the commandments of God. But God says in the Qur'an , "God encompasses what they do." In other words, God tells us that "I create every little detail; their getting spoiled, going astray, showing off, all of them. Everything is under My control." Because when a man is spoiled, he thinks that he is doing this as a separate power, independent of God; he cannot be independent from God. God says that He encompasses everything. Everything is within His knowledge.
