Violence in any case equates with religion for a bigot. It means it is a requirement of religion. That is why the bigot mindset needs to be eliminated first. And in order for the bigot mindset to be eliminated, sects need to be done away with. People invent their own interpretations in these sects. They invent their own ideas. So the system of the Mahdi is essential. There is no alternative to the system of the Mahdi. The Islamic world will accept no pronouncements from any leader other than the Mahdi (pbuh). People need to be told of the erroneous nature of the references employed by bigots. You cannot free people by going out and burning books.

Look, do you see what those characterless bigots said to Hz. Ali (ra)? After the martyrdom of the companions of the Prophet, “Yes, our prophet (pbuh) gave you the good news of Gardens, which is true” said the bigots of that time to Hz. Ali (ra) “But you have changed” said they. They did not like his joy, his cheer, his love for women, his vivacity, and his humorousness. Scoundrels; they were wretched people, look at our beloved Hz. Ali (ra) and look at their treachery; they martyred him while he was performing prayers in the mosque.Bigots have always been trouble and dirt, always. When they get an opportunity, they try to cause trouble, do viciousness, behave cruelly towards Muslims, to do evil. They assume they do evil but they have ascended to the highest level when they martyred Hz. Ali (ra). Then they died as well. They went to hell. What happened? What did they earn? Hz. Ali (ra) is in the Gardens.

(An answer to the question, “How do you account for the fact that while our elders would not even stretch their feet out in the room containing the Holy Qur’an, yet you read the Qur’an when there are women who keep their heads uncovered when the Qur’an is read, even though our Prophet (pbuh) says, ‘speak to women from behind a veil’?)
Satan has played a trick to turn you away from the Qur’an and Allah under a guise of holiness, a trick that would amaze you. If you fall for that trap you will be very foolish indeed. What does that mean? Either you or the Qur’an will not be able to enter a house containing the Qur’an. And since you will enter it, the Qur’an will have to leave. Nonsense. They could not stretch their feet out in a house containing the Qur’an. So they could not lie down. So you would have to spend the whole night standing up. And since you could not sleep in that house, either you would have to leave it, or the Qur’an would. Look at satan’s trick. You can live in the best way of all in a house containing the Qur’an. The Qur’an is like bread, to be kept by the bed. “Is it right for the Qur’an to be read with people’s heads uncovered on your program?” So people whose heads are uncovered cannot listen to the Qur’an? What does that mean? Millions of people are listening to us now; 70%-80% of Turks do not cover their heads. So they would have to turn the TV off. So either we will not read the Qur’an, or else they will have to switch off. Both options are devilish and irrational. Both options serve satan. Do you see what satan does in order to turn people away from the Qur’an? How many roads has he blocked off? Do you see satan’s methods. He says, “.., I will lie in ambush for them on your straight path”. “When our Prophet (pbuh) spoke to women from behind a veil.” Do you not walk side by side with women on the hajj? Why are you lying? Why are you trying to alter Islam and the Qur’an? Why are you doing things that will cause satan to rejoice? That was limited to the wives of the Prophet (pbuh). Our mothers spoke from behind veils. Because Almighty Allah tells the wives of our Prophet (pbuh) “Do not be too soft-spoken in your speech lest someone with sickness in his heart becomes desirous.” They are our mothers. Of course this will anger us. We do not want anyone to look at our mothers out of the corners of their eyes. There are all kinds of people, and we cannot trust them all. Almighty Allah made things easier there, and our mothers spoke from behind veils. Because they were defamed and treated ignobly. They slandered my mother Ayisha (pbuh) and our other mothers. They acted dishonorably, and Almighty Allah acted accordingly. Allah says, “you are not like other women”. What does that mean? The women of the Islamic community are different, the wives of the Prophet (pbuh) are different. Look, note this - you are not like other women”. What does that mean? The women of the Islamic community are different, their law is different, there is no need for them to speak from behind a veil. That refers to the wives of the Prophet (pbuh). Allah took that precaution at that time to stop people behaving wrongly, insha’Allah. The women of the Islamic community are all together on the hajj and on war. How can they be separate? Our Prophet (pbuh) loved women. And Almighty Allah told my beloved forebear, “After that no other women are lawful for you nor may you exchange them for other wives, even though their beauty might be pleasing to you.” Because our Prophet (pbuh) kept on marrying them. There was great demand. My forebear was very handsome and attractive. My beloved forbear and Prophet (pbuh) was so lovely women would fall in love with him at a glance. Almighty Allah took precautions when all women fell in love with him. But He said those he already had were not included in this. He excluded the concubines he already had. They say you can not lie down in your house. You put the Qur’an by your bedside. You must kiss and embrace it and live with it. How can you not stretch out? What a thing to say!.
Look what Almighty Allah says in Surat an-Naml, 44: “To the Queen of Sheba; “She was told: ‘Enter the courtyard,’ but when she saw it she supposed it to be a pool...”” The Prophet Solomon (pbuh) was very sweet and lovely. He had it specially built to resemble a pool, it looked just like a pool as it reflected the light in waves. It looked like deep water. He invited Balqis the Queen of Sheba to enter the water. The woman bared her legs and prepared to enter the water. “She supposed it to be a pool.” Note that, not shallow water. And she bared her legs. “He [Solomon] said, ‘It is a courtyard paved with glass’.” He said it was not a pool. “She said, ‘My Lord, I have wronged myself...” The Queen of Sheba said, “I have submitted with Solomon to the Lord of all the worlds.” She looks the Prophet Solomon (pbuh) in the eyes as she speaks, and the Prophet Solomon (pbuh) looks her in the eyes. He knows she will bare her legs, and he still tells her to enter the pool. You may tell me that is a very severe way of speaking. But I would never hurt a fly. My language may be harsh, but I have enormous love and compassion. I have fished many number of ants out of water. I cannot let them be harmed.
How can you be unaware that satan will engage in such trickery? How can you not see it? You cannot sleep in a house with the Qur’an in it! Nor stretch your feet out! Nor sit in a chair! So what is the answer? To get rid of the Qur’an. And that is totally wrong. How can you not see that? Satan has tricked you, the dajjal has tricked you. Can you not see that? Have your brains seized up? Has Allah taken away your senses? Or have you gone crazy? You cannot read the Qur’an because there will be women with their heads uncovered. Look at that mentality! In that case the Qur’an cannot be read on any TV channel, in case people with their heads uncovered hear it. But 70%-80% of Turks do not cover their heads. Most women wear plunging necklines in the coastal towns. But I respect and love them all. I value and admire them all. The psychopathic bigots must not be offended by them. What kind of mindset is that? What kind of logic? They are radiant and immaculate Muslims.
Surah Yusuf, 23:
“The woman whose house it was,” who does the woman live with? With the Prophet Joseph (pbuh). “The woman whose house it was,” she lives in the same house as the Prophet Joseph (pbuh). In their eyes, may Allah forbid, the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) sins. Allah says they live in the same house. The woman wanders round normally, uncovered. “She solicited him. She barred the doors and said, ‘Come over here’!” She wants to make love with him. “He said, ‘Allah is my refuge!” Why does he seek refuge in Allah? He says he will not engage in sexual relations with her. “Because He is my Lord and has been good to me with where I live. Those who do wrong will surely not succeed.”
“She wanted him…,” my forebear, the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) was highly attractive. All the prophets are very attractive. Their beauty has a huge impact on women. The Prophet Moses (pbuh) was the same. That is even in Pharaoh’s inscriptions. Idiots with donkey-minds. Look, they were not able to there. They say; “The scholar and sorcerer Yahuda is very expert in influencing women. It says the Prophet Moses (pbuh) is very expert. Look, they become tongue-tied. They have to admit it. Masha’Allah to the Prophet Moses (pbuh), my forebearer. “The woman wanted him,” because he [the Prophet Joseph(pbuh)] was so attractive. “and he would have wanted her, had he not seen the Clear Proof of his Lord.” Who forbade him to stay in the same room, or to look at her and who forbade adultery, or sexual relations. He saw her and wanted her, but he did not enter into sexual relations. They were in the same place, but he avoided vice and adultery. “That happened so We might avert from him all evil and lust. He was Our chosen servant.”
Surat al-Qasas, 23:
“When he arrived at the water of Madyan, he found a crowd of people drawing water there.” Men and women. “Standing apart from them, he found two women, holding back their sheep.” Bigots would probably have run away. But the Prophet Moses (pbuh) approaches them. “He said, ‘What are you two doing here’?” He wants to help them. "They said, ‘We cannot draw water until the shepherds have driven off their sheep’.” Because brainless types refuse to go anywhere near them. They recognize high-quality people. What do they say? “You see our father is a very old man’.”
“So he drew water for them and then withdrew into the shade and said, ‘My Lord, I am truly in need of any good You have in store for me’.”
He desires good.
“One of them came walking shyly up to him...” In their eyes, she had also sinned. Because she approached him. The Prophet Moses (pbuh) approached her, and she him. "My father invites you so that he can pay you your wage for drawing water for us...” They praise him to their father. “When he came to him and told him the whole story he said, ‘Have no fear, you have escaped from wrongdoing people’.” They say to their father, “He is someone strong and trustworthy.”
How could they know he was strong and trustworthy without seeing him? According to the bigots, they were sinning. The Prophet Moses (pbuh) also sinned. The Prophet Joseph (pbuh) sinned, too. And in their eyes, may Allah forbid, even our Prophet (pbuh) sinned. No. If I and the verses of the Qur’an are in error, let them say so to me. I read a verse and the bigots make not a sound. They even bring me reports from idols. Do not bring me reports from idols. Bring me information from the Qur’an. Do you cite evidence from the Qur’an? No. It always comes from idols. Tell me, “These verses you read are wrong.” But they are true. And you cannot say they are wrong.
Now satan has this trick. He says; “If your head is covered, if you are covered up, you cannot appear on television or go to the shops or to schools.” So do you know where there is freedom? Only in the grave. They have kept women away from Islam and the Qur’an by that method. They have produced thousands of obstacles to women with uncovered heads approaching Islam and the Qur’an. Satan has been really very clever. But I have thwarted satan with his own trick. All women with bare heads are immaculate Muslims. They are all our pure and spotless sisters. They are first class Muslims. So they can relax. The can read the Qur’an as they wish, and read the hadiths and the Risale-i Nur and need never bow to pressure. If we continue in this way them, insha’Allah, we will totally thwart this trickery of satan’s. Because they have made one nation out of bare-headed people and another out of those who cover up. As if they were from different faiths. They have managed to keep bare-headed women away from Islam and the Qur’an. A great many of them. By looking at them with anger and hatred. By developing a terrible hatred for well-groomed and made-up women, they have placed Muslim women, our immaculate nation, in the position of infidels or sinners or bad people. And that is why these bare-headed women feel a great hatred for bigots. A lot of them. A justified hatred has grown up. These people are doing all they can to keep them away from Islam and the Qur’an. But I have embraced them all and called them all to Islam and the Qur’an. At least 70%-80% of Turkish women are bare-headed. But I look out for them all. They are luminous Muslims. I have freed them from the clutches and assaults of the bigots. Well-groomed women who wear make-up are very dear to me. Bare-headed or covered up, they are all luminous Muslims. I have put an end to this trick of satan’s. Satan and the dajjal are squirming now. And I am enjoying watching them. The more we hit them, the more they squeal. We will put an end to this trickery, insha’Allah. There is no room for the way of the Mahdi. The dajjal attacks from two directions. One with Darwinists and materialists, and the other with religious bigots. Not that I have blocked the road ahead of both. Bare-headed women are now reading and listening to the Qur’an and learning about Islam. Their love for Rasulullah (pbuh) is rowing many times over. They are growing in awareness. Look, I read texts from the Qur’an and someone suggests the television should be shut down. What stupidity! I will continue on the true path, insha’Allah.
Many bigots hate well-groomed, bare-headed women. And all well-groomed women with bare heads all loathe the bigots. A great many of them are like that. I am eliminating that strife. I am cleaning out that filth, hatred and stupidity of the bigot mindset, insha’Allah. I take the nation as a whole. Our immaculate young girls are now going to Istanbul University. They go to Boğaziçi University. Modern young women. They are all radiant, immaculate Muslims. All radiant daughters of Muslims. They are immaculate, and can now be at ease.
People are unaware of the hatred bigots feel for well-groomed, bare headed women. But I regard that hatred as corruption and will eliminate it.
A9 TV; 03 November 2011
Let the fanatics, hypocrites and unbelievers all listen very carefully. Look, in verse 51 of Surat al-‘Ankabut Almighty Allah says,
“Is it not enough for them that We have sent down to you the Book which is recited to them?” What do the fanatics say? “That is not enough,” they say. But Allah says it is enough, yet they say it is not. When asked what they want, they say, “There is one Qur’an, but we have another fabricated one.” “We have ten, a hundred or a thousand times more nonsense,” they. Look, “There is certainly a mercy and reminder in that for people who believe,” Allah says.
Surat al-An’am, 38
The bigots should listen very carefully to this: “We have not omitted anything from the Book.” What do the bigots say? “We don’t believe it. There are many things missing from the Qur’an,” they say. “We could go on about them forever,” they say. So you say, “What must we do?” And they say, may Allah forbid, “We need fabrications, that is what.” They first set up a religion in their own minds. They look and see it is not in the Qur’an. “That is no good,” they say. What is the correct way of doing things? You must look at the Qur’an and live by the religion set out in the Qur’an. But they do not do that. They have established a religion made up of idols. They seek a religion made up of idols in the Qur’an, then when they fail to find it they say, “The Qur’an is not enough.”
“We have not omitted anything from the Book,” Allah says. That comes down like a ton of bricks on the heads of the bigots.
Surat ar-Rum, 58
Allah says, “We have made all kinds of examples for people in this Qur’an.” Not just some, look, “We have made all kinds of examples.” “If you bring them a Sign...” when you come with the verses of the Qur’an, the deniers will inevitably say, "You are just purveyors of falsehood!” In other words: “You are perverse. You alter the religion. You are destroying Islam.” That is how the unbelievers reply. What do the bigots say? ”You are perverse.” They say, “You are altering the religion.”
Surat an-Nahl, 89
“We have sent down the Book to you making all things clear,” look, a book that explains all things, “as guidance and mercy and good news for the Muslims.”
Allah says, “I have explained all things.” What do the bigots say? “That is no good. You have to have fabrications, as well. We want whatever pours from the mouths of idols. The Qur’an is not enough for us,” they say.
Look what Almighty Allah says in Surat al-Kahf 54, “We have variegated throughout this Qur’an all kinds of examples for people,” Not just one, but “all kinds of examples,” He says.
Surat an-Nahl, 116
Look, Almighty Allah is addressing the bigots again: “…about what your lying tongues describe…” They collect together nonsense and fabrications from their idols and describe it all day and night on the television. What does Almighty Allah say? “…about what your lying tongues describe…” Their fabrications. “Do not say…This is lawful and this is unlawful.” But what do they do? They go on television and say “Everything is unlawful.” “This is lawful, and that is unlawful,” they say. On what basis? Of fabrication. Is that based on the Qur’an? Not at all. Look,“[you are] inventing lies against Allah,” says Allah. “Those who invent lies against Allah are not successful.” Allah sends them troubles and afflictions and they are beaten down and crushed.
Surat al-A’raf, 32-33
“Say: ‘Who has forbidden the fine clothing Allah has produced for His servants and the good kinds of provision’?” Adornments and beautiful things and everything needed for Muslims to look good, and lawful foods. Who says they are unlawful? The bigot. Does he get that from the Qur’an? No. It is a fabrication. Look, Almighty Allah says: ”associating anything with Allah for which He has sent down no authority,” in other words, thins which are not in the Qur’an. They issue ruling in the name of Allah, they fabricate laws through the mouths of idols. “…and saying things about Allah you do not know.” Hypocrites and bigots go on the television and talk about fabrications on some channels. And looking the nation right in the eye as they do so. Look: “My Lord has forbidden ... saying things about Allah you do not know.” Is it in the Qur’an? No. So where do you get it from? “From idols,” they say. There are two forms of enmity here. Enmity toward the Qur’an and enmity toward the Ahl al-Bayt [People of the House of the Prophet(saas)]. They are secret enemies of the Prophet (pbuh). They have three enmities. But they do not let on.
Surat al-Ma’ida, 87;
“You who believe! do not make unlawful the good things Allah has made lawful for you,” things which please you and taste good. Do not try to conceal these things by saying they are unlawful and do not prohibit them. Do not try to take these blessings away from people or to turn people away from them. “and do not overstep the limits,” says Allah. “If you do this, you are overstepping the limits,” He says.
Surat al-Mu’minun, 70;
I seek refuge in Allah from the accursed satan
“Or do they say, ‘He is a man possessed’,” What do they say about the prophets? That they are crazy. What did they say about Bediüzzaman? That he was crazy. May Allah forbid! And what will they say about Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh)? That he is crazy, too. “Or do they say, ‘He is a man possessed,’ when he has brought the truth to them?” What is the truth? The Qur’an and the commandments in the Qur’an. “But most of them” the bigots, “hate the truth” says Allah.
Surah Yunus, 15;
“When Our Clear Signs are recited to them, those who do not expect to meet Us...” The bigots are most ignoble and stand up and oppose Allah and speak with a language resembling that of devil. Look - “those who do not expect to meet Us say, ‘Bring a Qur’an other than this one or change it’.” How do they change it. Through fabrications from the mouths of idols. The Qur’an is thus altered for them.
Look, when we go to paradise, our Prophet (pbuh) and the whole Islamic community will be there for us. Almighty Allah will ask our Prophet (pbuh) “What complaint have you about the Islamic community?” Generally speaking, what complaints do you have? Look, one question. Our Prophet (pbuh) will make just one complaint about them:
Surat al-Furqan, 30:
“The Messenger says, ‘My Lord, my people treat this Qur’an as something to be ignored’.”
What has happened? They have all gone along with fabrications alongside the bigots and do not heed the Qur’an. That is what Rasulullah (pbuh) is saying.
Surat ar-Rum, 32:
“…those who split up their religion, and form into sects, each faction exulting in what they have.”
Allah is referring to the bigots. Look, they split the true faith up into different sects and schools and communities and they are divided among themselves, “form into sects”. They all boast of being the select ones, those who will be saved. Allah wants one single faith. One single community. The Qur’an is addressed to all Muslims. Allah does not address American Muslims separately and Turkish Muslims differently. He addresses all Muslims together when He speaks of believers. All of them. Yet people still say “We are the true Believers.” How many different sets of true Believers can there be? The true Believers in the End Times are the way of the Mahdi. There are no other true Believers according to the hadiths of our Prophet (pbuh). Allah does not desire division. There are sects and divisions now, but that is not of our choosing. We have to put up with the situation until the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). This is the corruption that will be when Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) appears. The faith should not be divided into sects. We put up with it because we have to. But all sects will be done away with when Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) comes. There will be one faith, insha’Allah.
Surat ash-Shura, 13;
“Establish the religion and do not make divisions in it.” Maintain Islam and let there be Islamic Union and let people live by the laws of Islam and do not be divided into sects. “He has laid down the same religion for you as He enjoined on Noah:” Allah is addressing our Prophet (pbuh), “that [the law] which We have revealed to you and which We enjoined on Abraham, Moses and Jesus:” He has made it a law. “What you call the idolaters to follow is very hard for them,” Allah refers to the bigots. “Allah chooses for Himself anyone He wills and guides to Himself those who turn to Him.”
And these are the community of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), insha’Allah.
Surat al-Qasas, 36;
“But when Moses brought them Our Clear Signs,” when the Prophet Moses (pbuh) came to the bigots of the time, they said, “This is nothing but trumped-up magic. We never heard anything like among our earlier forefathers.”
From the idols they regard as equal to Allah, may He forbid, in other words. In other words, they say, “Our scholars have never said this. Where did you get it from?”
Surat al-Mu’minun, 68;
“Do they not ponder these words? Has anything come to them that did not come to their ancestors the previous peoples?”
These foolish people do not think, of course. Almighty Allah asks the bigots whether anything came to them that did not come to their ancestors. And they say that it did. They say that fabricated nonsense came to them, and that they follow that nonsense.
A9 TV; 10 November 2011
(In response to the question “Is it fitting for women to listen to the Qur’an with their heads uncovered?”)
The same old obsession: “Many women here and there listen to the Qur’an being read, listen to you reading the Qur’an with their heads uncovered. Would it not be better not to read the Qur’an?” In summary that is the issue. You are trying to turn people away from the Qur’an. In Turkey, 70% or 80% of women do not cover their heads. The great majority are uncovered at home, at least 90% of them. So fear Allah and pull yourselves together, women must listen to the Qur’an with joy. Do not try to turn people away from the Qur’an. Do not follow satan. Pull yourselves together. They use all kinds of excuses to turn women from the Qur’an. And everyone else. “You cannot understand the Qur’an, not even if you tried for 40 years, so do not read it. Put it in its cover and leave it there.” They have ruined believers by turning people away from the Qur’an. Our Prophet (pbuh) has but one complaint in the Hereafter; “O Lord, this community of mine have abandoned the Qur’an,” he says. İbrahim [addressing the owner of the question], you are also one of this gang. Fear Allah and free yourself from this scourge. Leave it alone.
“Heads uncovered”. You are also trying to get men to cover their heads. “They are also infidels if they do not wear a skull cap,” they say. Women with their heads covered or uncovered all listen easily to the Qur’an. Do not turn people away from the Qur’an. Stop it. You are hurting Islam and the Qur’an.
I am not going to tell my beloved, “Your head is uncovered, so I shall not speak to you about the Qur’an.” That breaks off communications right from the start. That is unacceptable. You must preach with the Qur’an. Our Prophet (pbuh) used to preach in the market of Ukaz with the Qur’an. Did our Prophet (pbuh) say, “Cover your heads first, then I shall read to you from the Qur’an”? Did he? Where do you get this idea from?
A9 TV; 11 September 2011
If you keep repeating the views on life of unbelievers and fanatics, then you will continue with the same problems, to wade through the same mud. There is a system established by the fanatics. And that system has made Muslims as they are now. Since the fanatics have taken over many key positions they have inflicted disaster on Muslims. You say, let us continue striving in the same way with the system of the bigots. But you will continue suffering afflictions in the same way, then. Allah will continue to afflict you so long as you apply the system of the bigots and the unbelievers. And you will begin struggling through troubles and difficulties, and you will never see the end of them. “Why do we not live like the bigots?” you ask. That is like saying, “Why do we not seek out afflictions?” The fanatics brought about the collapse of the Ottoman Empire. If you continue with the same vile, dark and muddy system, the same problems will repeat themselves. Nothing else is possible. What is the way of the Mahdi? The exact opposite of that. The exact opposite of the bigots’ system. Let us be followers of Hazrat Mahdi (as). Let us return to the time of our Prophet (saas). Let us be Muslims of the Age of Felicity, insha’Allah.
If bigotry prevails, the Islamic community will be ruined. Nothing will be left of Islam, the Qur’an, the faith, Allah or scripture. You are unknowingly serving the dajjal [antichrist], the way of the dajjal. Bigotry is the sword of the dajjal. And bigotry brought down the Ottoman Empire. The reason why Europeans are so uneasy about Islam is again bigotry. Islam is light, beauty, but you have depicted it as a system that terrifies people. You have produced a terrible scourge and corruption. I am trying to clean that corruption up, to clean up what you have soiled.

I describe the essentials. Muslims would be ruined if I were to talk about superstition. Their brains would give way. It is terribly wrong to take up Muslims’ time, weaken them, distract them and provide opportunities for disbelief by talking nonsense. Because that nonsense would then attack Muslims. And Muslims would be at a loss what to say and do. Nonsense provides material for disbelief, day and night. And that nonsense becomes more blatant under disbelief.
A9 TV, 23 September 2011
The reason for Muslims coming to this state, being so oppressed, is bigotry. Bigotry has made them like this. They have abandoned art, science and reason. It forbids thought. It rejects art. Which means that 1.5 billion Muslims are prisoners and unbelievably oppressed, as everyone knows. Some die of hunger and others are martyred in bombings. Some are martyred through torture, while others are insulted and despised. Muslims are in a wretched state. Most are prisoners. They are fair game for everyone. They go and bomb them, seize their oil, confiscate their belongings and impound their funds overseas. The reason for this is bigotry. Backwardness; there are two kinds of retroactivity. One is when you go back and take what is good from the past, and that is enlightening. Then there is bigotry. A reversion to savageness. Many people have fallen captive to bigotry. I am striving intellectually to eradicate that, to eliminate that mindset. That is the only way we can be successful, insha’Allah.
We must first prepare the way for the coming of Jesus the Messiah (pbuh). We must eliminate that Christian hatred. We must bring about solidarity between Christians and Muslims. That is essential. It is stressed in the Qur’an. Allah tells us only to debate with them using the most gentle form of words, and to invite them to believe in His Oneness. He tells us to treat them with love, and says we can marry their women. But some people keep talking about butchering them, instead. The bigots take one part of the Qur’an but ignore the other. They take the bit that suits them, but not the bits that don’t. So they try to prepare the groundwork for hatred. Yet Allah tells us in the Qur’an not to hate. He wants us to correct our errors. We must hate their errors, but apart from that, Allah desires no enmity from us. We will all see Jesus the Messiah (pbuh) together. This is a great event of this century, a giant event. People will regard Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) as quite normal, but Jesus the Messiah (pbuh) will astonish them. Because he will be sent back from another dimension by Allah after 2000 years. That is amazing. Of course they will also give Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) his due. But they will say: “America helped. The freemasons helped. The Jews helped. The secret state got involved. He was a very intelligent type. The groundwork was all ready. There was an ideological gap since all ideologies had collapsed. So what was to be done? Of course Islam came to fill it.
A9 TV; 26 October 2011
(In response to those who say it is improper for women to appear on television)
If it were up to them, they would not be allowed out on the street, either. Laughing would not be permitted. If we excluded all the supposedly prohibited things, the only permissible thing would be dying. Nothing else would be permissible. That is so very wrong. You have misrepresented Muslims and thus ruined them. Look, that imbecile inflicted terrible trouble on Libya and they duly humiliated him. I watched his last moments on tape. The imbecile brought it all on himself. But if he had listened to me he could have finished the matter with honor. He had the foolishness and craziness of the fanatic, the stubbornness of the fanatic, and Allah inflicted a terrible end on him. The foolishness of the bigot is enormous. Women must be everywhere in life, in Parliament and hospitals, out on the streets and everywhere. Do not be so foolish. Look, let me give an example from the hajj [pilgrimage]. Men and women perform the hajj together. So where do you get that idea from? Bigotry knows no bounds. If you let bigotry take hold of you, it is a bottomless pit. Look where it has got to now. No appearing on television. And what about Parliament? They can’t go there. Can they go to restaurants? No. Or school? No school, either. And what parts of the house are permissible? They will say, “The window must not be too close to the street.” The house must not give onto the street. They must not laugh or talk or move. They want to stop them being human. These psychopathic ideas, the hatred of women of the old pagans and polytheists, are a left-over from former times. But women are everywhere when we look at the Qur’an. The Prophet Joseph (pbuh) and that woman were alone in the same room. He spent his whole life with her. The Prophet Moses (pbuh) talked with the daughters of the prophet, and women liked the Prophet Moses (pbuh). They said he was “strong and reliable.” The Prophet Solomon (pbuh) brought the Queen of Sheba over and played a joke on her, telling her to enter the pool. She got her legs ready, but then realized it was a joke. He was instrumental in the woman coming to have faith. There are many examples in the Qur’an and the hadiths and in life, and you can see it on the hajj. But they are trying to get even further down into the bottomless pit of bigotry and to ruin Muslims even more, as if they have not already done so enough. And there are no such problems on other problems. They have music programs of all kinds. Women appear on them. Most female speakers have low necklines. I have seen that on all channels. They use women in advertising, insha’Allah. There is a video film about that. Can you show it? My apologies to my brothers there. I am not accusing anyone, but I can find no other explanation for why they are not made uncomfortable when watching programs everywhere else. “Why are their heads uncovered?” Do you know what would happen? You could not go out of doors at all. But you go to school and take the bus or the tram, and all the women there have their heads uncovered. The teachers are all uncovered. Seventy percent of Turkey is bare-headed. So what is this logic all about? I really cannot understand it. There are women everywhere. There is no end to them. The people who try to tell us what to do generally watch that kind of channel, and then try to give us advice. Why do women appear on the television? It should not be allowed, they say. There are women on all channels, and you see them everywhere, on the streets and in their homes. You see them in the markets and at the butcher’s shop. What kind of savage thinking is this? If they could, they would put them all into sacks and sew the mouths shut. That is a totally fanatical mindset, and totally mistaken. It is nothing more than jealousy. Because my female colleagues are all very, very attractive, full of love, very classy, whose faces radiate love and passion. But they despise them and look at them as if they were horrible and filthy. It is all envy. They find it very difficult as this is the first time they have seen women looking at them with passion. These are people who have never known love in their lives. No such lovely, high quality women ever appear before them. Because women do not regard such horrible people as worthy of them. They are repelled by them. So why dress up and groom themselves for them? Why treat such horrible men well, such base people? Men who are so utterly stinking and vile? They turn up before these men in the most unkempt state because they regard them as totally unworthy of them. They put up with all that filth because of their money. Of course, there is a huge passion, love and warmth here. They stink, and their wives stink. They are really filthy. They have no idea of beauty and their homes are horrible. They are horrible themselves. They are amazed when they see a life resembling paradise, because they are so used to that particular hell. Because women are genuinely repelled; these men have bad breath and terrible body odor. Everything about them stinks. The women are the same. They turn up just as filthy. They are used to it. And seeing a decent human being takes them aback. They must renounce all that, insha’Allah. Because these people have really lost the thread; they sit in their gloomy homes and look at one another and are mutually repelled. They fight and badmouth one another. They constantly fight and put one another down. A really hellish life. But they look at these other people and see love and friendship and brotherhood. Someone devotes many long years, he graduates and makes money, he buys a house and has more money in the bank, but he is still not happy. He has not found love. He has never found anyone to love him with a passion. But then he looks and everyone here loves everyone else with a passion. It is the first time he sees such passion and love, and it tears at his heart. “I have striven all my life but never seen even a millionth of that love,” he says, “never a millionth of that respect.”

The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) loved women very much, and the power of the Prophet (pbuh) is specially set out in the hadiths. He was a very strong person. His strength and love were very powerful. We see that in Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim. The bigots do not like to hear that, but I say it anyway, insha’Allah. All the prophets have had a huge love of women. In proportion to their faith. The more faith a person has, the greater his love of women. That is how much he loves their beauty, and how much he loves animals. That determines how much he loves beauty and cleanliness. He loves all that is beautiful. In proportion to his faith. But bigots loathe women, and seek to turn them into apes because they detest them. They try to turn them into something disgusting. Bigots dislike pretty women. And Allah dislikes them. He gives them foul women who stink. And they are all disgusted by one another. Both are utterly filthy. Their women are like the wife of Abu Lahab. They all spread filth. Allah sets them up with one another. He gives bad men to bad women, and bad women to bad men.
The bigots cannot even imagine classy, high quality Muslims. It would never cross their minds. They could never dream of that kind of lifestyle. Ataturk was also aware of that, masha’Allah. He spoke of “faithless teachers.” That is a splendid way of putting it. Look, Ataturk had a huge love for genuine religious teachers. But he loathed faithless ones. Base guys like that. He would call them to him and they talked and behaved falsely. They tried to give him a good impression of them. But Ataturk loathed them. Ataturk said a lot about that.

(Regarding the appearance of ladies in burqas in the TV program “Conversations with Harun Yahya” on A9 channel)
The reason why I have these ladies in burqas appear on our TV program is that there is a huge oppression toward these ladies in burqas. In the society, in every corner of the world. There are also lots of people who oppress them. It is also the case in Turkey. They suffer a very ill-natured treatment towards them, both in terms of style and manners. I do it especially to put an end to such kind of treatment, Insha’Allah. That is to say, this is the way we express our love and support towards our sisters in burqa, Insha’Allah. This way, in one way or another, we immediately eliminate any insinuation made at them since in this state there remains no one who would dare to open his mouth, Insha’Allah. That is because you are a very good quality and beautiful people. I also have our sisters with scarves appear on our programs. We assume an attitude that would put a stop to hideous expressions and attacks against scarves. With the quality and beauty [of these sisters], we deal a blow, a spiritual blow, to such evil tongues, Insha’Allah. I especially have ladies with a western looking appearance appear [in our programs], Insha’Allah, for there are also very mean, bigoted and filthy assaults against them. In order to silence those fools against well-groomed ladies with make-up, I especially have you appear. This way, we teach feelings of love, respect and compassion to those impertinent ones. A great majority of our nation are mature, but there are some churls. We show them that they must behave honestly. There is also a grudge against well-groomed ladies as well as those ladies with scarves and those in burqa. This is a deadly savagery; there is the bigotry of both sides. I teach to these bone-headed bigots, these churls how to behave decently, Insha’Allah.

“To a certain degree, it is concealed.” “To a certain degree”, Bediuzzaman says. “Missionaries”; Christian Missionaries, those who preach Christianity, clergy, monks, and the followers of the Risale-i Nur have to be very careful. So who has to be careful? One; missionaries, two; Christian clergy, three; the followers of the Risale-i Nur. “That is because, the movement of the West”; which means, Marxist-Leninist thinking. At the moment there is the terror organization of the PKK (Kurdistan Workers’ Party), and all sorts of communist movements in the world. Notice that, “The movement of the West”; that is, those who follow Marxist- Leninist thinking, the materialistic thinking, will ally among themselves to disrupt the alliance of Christian missionaries and Islam. That is the alliance of Muslims and Christians. Don’t we see the same feature in today’s bigots? Don’t we see this in the action of such a bad lot? Those who commit prostitution, the dirt bags , they all struggle to ruin this alliance. Notice that Bediuzzaman informed us this about 70 years ago. Look, “They will struggle to ruin the alliance between Islam and the missionaries.” That is why they say, “Why are you not hostile to the People of the Book?” Why don’t you blaspheme them? Why don’t you curse Christians?

Be very attentive against bigotry. It destroys the state and the nation. Bigotry is very dangerous. The first one is communism, the second one is bigotry. The late [Kemal Mustafa] Atatürk rendered very great services and he broke the backbone of the bigots. He opened the gate of the system of Hazrat Mahdi (as).
A9 TV; October 30th, 2011
Bigotry has ruined Islam. Such a miserable state of Muslims; a great part of the world, 80 to 90 percent, 99 percent of the Muslims are in devastation. The collapse of The Ottoman Empire is bigotry. What I say is true. They have taken artistry, science, beauty from the hands of Muslims. They have taken civilization and quality from Muslims. When a quality, beautiful understanding of Islam prevails, the entire world embraces it and it will embrace [Islam]. Don’t fall into this trap. They deceived Muslims through superstitions. Satan has ensnared Muslims. They said, “The Qur’an is inadequate; just comply with the superstitions.” And the guys have abided by it. In the Qur’an such a filthy system does not exist. Such a corrupted, messy system is not present in the Qur’an. The guys themselves feel suffocated under this idolatrous system. He is in this system and he is trying to save himself. Don’t do it.

The bigoted types have a terrible hatred for young women. That spread as far as Europe, as we know. But I have cleaned that filth out, I have eliminated that disgrace, that enmity toward women, that hatred of women. I have shown them that they will be loved and respected and that we will all live together. And thanks to me, neither Europe nor America have any tools left they can use on this subject. Otherwise they would have been crushed, though they do not realize it. By Allah’s leave, I have saved them from a terrible scourge. The alleged terror organization Ergenekon would also have ruined them, Europe and America, may Allah forbid. I have stopped many things happening, by Allah’s leave. I have shown the warm, loving, rational and beautiful face of Islam. I love women. Everyone knows I love women very much. But I respect and value them. I am loyal and reasonable and full of respect for them and will not allow them to be repressed or downtrodden. I love them with a powerful love of Allah. I will not allow a hair on their heads to be harmed. I will not allow them to be repressed, and that is what matters. I want them to love Allah and the hereafter. I want them to be bound to Allah with love. They foolishly wish to break off 70% of the nation. They have already broken off from it and now they want me to. But I have a huge love for women, as did our Prophet (saas), and the Prophet Solomon (as), and the Prophet Joseph (as) and Hazrat Hassan (as). I love and value women and regard them as the greatest blessings in this world. And I want them to be well and happy.
The world wants an Islam with no war or conflict. I have spoken with people. They do not want bigotry. They do not want a system where young men and women are oppressed and where nonsense rules.
We need a bright radiance, or clarity of mind. The brain and its functions collapse under pressure. To be replaced by joylessness. And when you have that, it is like computers being deprived of electricity, they are no use, and neither are such people. Some of them take the life out of people. They ban joy. But people have to laugh and relax. Why ban laughter? Let them laugh. They give young girls no room to breathe, they smother them. The laws they have made make women third class citizens. They have stopped being human at all. They portray them as suspicious and untrustworthy beings. But women are really clever and sweet. Where did they get the idea they are better than them from?
The Qur’an is widely renounced in the End Times. Particularly by the bigots. They will say the Qur’an is unimportant, that it is things added on afterward that really count, that abiding by the Qur’an is corruption. Prophets are afflicted by a dajjal. The Mahdi will be troubled by some 30 dajjals. Because there are some 7 billion people in the world. The dajjal will emerge from the bigots and unbelievers. There will be big and small ones, particularly Darwin.
Disbelief looks after the bigots. And the bigots look after disbelief. Their secret alliance is devilish but quite normal. They come together and determine their strategies in dark, secret places.
They have bound Muslims’ hand, mouths and eyes, and then they have set them before disbelief. They have abandoned the words of the Qur’an and our Prophet (saas) regarding earthly desires, and they have adopted nonsense. They have also weakened Muslims by depicting peace and love as bad. They have taken science and art from their hands and turned them against technology. They have thus made Muslims weak. But I am putting that right, insha’Allah.
The dajjal (antichrist) has two horns and two arms. He has one blind eye and one swollen one. The swollen one is bigotry, and the blind eye is atheism, Darwinist and materialist thinking. He has two arms, one is bigotry and the other Darwinist and materialist thinking. That is why he goes arm in arm, hand in hand with Darwinists and bigots. They understand one another very well. The reason why bigots are opposed to Hazrat Mahdi (as) is that they say “he has destroyed our religion.” That religion is bigotry. Hazrat Mahdi (as) is restoring things to how they were in the time of the Prophet Solomon (as). But for bigots, the time of the Prophet Solomon (as) is disbelief, may Allah forbid. If the Prophet (saas) were to appear now they would declare war on him, may Allah forbid. The bigots of the day martyred Hazrat Hussein (as) and Hazrat Hassan (as). Why did they martyr Hazrat Ali (as)? Because he was against bigotry. What did Hazrat Ali (as) say? He said the Qur’an was enough. He said the way our Prophet (saas) set out and applied the Qur’an was enough. What did Hazrat Umar (as) say? He said the Qur’an was enough. That is why he was martyred by the bigots. They rejected nonsense. They said they would only act by the Qur’an and how the Prophet (saas) applied the Qur’an. That is also why the 12 imams (Twelver) were martyred.
A system that is devastating the Islamic world and doing away with art, science, beauty, love, joy and sincerity Islam. And you see they are ruining Muslims because they have taken Muslims’ fundamental strength from them, they have taken away their music, and their science, paintings and art. And they have enslaved and crushed Muslims. They have left them with only the shirts on their backs. I am a plain-speaking, honest and fearless man. They see women with headscarves and you say, “what are you grumbling about?” “Because they are not wearing the full burka” they reply. The headscarf alone is not enough. They have a terrible hatred for women who leave their heads uncovered. Whereas I love them with all my heart. I will protect and watch over them with all my might and will not abandon them to the atheists and irreligious. They are the sweetest things in the world. If they wear the headscarf that is fine, and it is fine if they do not. They are all 100% Muslims, all the jewels in our crown. Our prophet (saas) used to meet women. As he says himself, “there are three things that delight me, the first is prayer, the second is women and the third is pleasant scents.” Why did the Prophet Solomon (as) bring Balkis the Queen of Sheba to his palace? We are striving to resemble the Prophet Solomon (as) and our Prophet (saas). Balkis the Queen of Sheba was a non-Muslim, but she became a Muslim. He welcomed her to the palace and spoke with her alone. They spoke and conversed and discussed matters, and then it appears they wished to marry. Bediuzzaman also says we will achieve the spiritual capture of Istanbul through women, insha’Allah. He says the spiritual conquest will come about through women. Eighty percent of women do not cover their heads. I will not let anyone grumble about that. These people grumble, whereas I love them with all my heart. I embrace them and watch over and protect them and will continue to do so.
Someone stands up and says pictures are unlawful. That is ruinous for Muslims. You cannot strive in the absence of pictures. The Atlas of Creation is full of pictures from beginning to end. Why should pictures be unlawful? They say that Bukhari says so. Wrong. They misinterpret him. They began making pictures of the Prophet Jesus (as) in the time of our Prophet (saas) and to make pictures of our Prophet (saas), and to worship them. Our Prophet (saas) told them to stop. Instead of going off to battle in the days of our Prophet (saas), some people played on the tambourines, and our Prophet (saas) told them not to. But apart from that, why should they be banned? You must not invent your own rules.2012-10-31 11:26:28
