Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9 TV dated December 14th, 2011
ADNAN OKTAR: Surat Al-Insan, Verses 11-12 [I seek refuge with Allah from the satan] "So Allah has safeguarded them from the evil of that Day and has made them meet with radiance and pure joy, and will reward them for their steadfastness with a Garden and with silk." [Surat Al-Insan, Verse 13] "Reclining in it on couches.." Are those couches created through evolution?
PRESENTER: Of course not.
ADNAN OKTAR: Let them ask that Hodja, let them ask that evolutionists as well, to those who claim that there is the concept of evolution in the Qur'an. ".. they will experience there neither burning sun nor bitter cold." It is all in the middle. Look, if you pay attention you will see that we cannot make that arrangement here in this world, it gets cold and then it gets hot. Almighty Allah says that it will always be moderate in there, the weather is always mild there.
[Surat Al-Insan, 14] "Its shading branches will droop down over them, its ripe fruit hanging ready to be picked." They are under the shadows of fruit trees, the branches drooping down, close to them, it is so close that they can directly take them if they reach for them. When one reaches for them, the branch droops down to him, for him to take it.
ADNAN OKTAR: "Vessels of silver.. " Are those formed through evolution?
PRESENTER: Of course not.
ADNAN OKTAR: Allah created them. "..and goblets of pure crystal will be passed round among them." look these are glass, silver and crystal "crystalline silver - they have measured them very exactly." So they are very shapely, very classy. "They will be given there a cup to drink mixed with the warmth of ginger." Of course there is a reference here to a very pleasant smell and taste. Ginger mentioned here is not the ginger we know. "In it there is a flowing spring called Salsabil." I mean that is a flowing spring from which there is constant distribution for the good pleasure of Allah. "Ageless youths will circulate among them, serving them." They serve them. "Ageless youths will circulate among them, serving them." Are they created through evolution? Allah creates them. "Seeing them, you would think them scattered pearls." When the pearls are scatter how rich they appear? They are all sparkling in the Heaven, they are all very shapely, very beautiful, their skins are shining brightly, all white, they are very beautiful looking youngsters Allah says. "Seeing them, you would think them scattered pearls. Seeing them, you see delight and a great kingdom." Wherever you look; you see fruit trees, furniture, beautifully decorated pillows, ".. and a great kingdom" so Allah says you will see an amazing wealth in the Heaven. "They will wear green garments of fine silk and rich brocade." There is fine silk, rich silk as well, garments. Green garments.. the prevailing color in the heaven is green. "There are green clothes," Allah says. Of course there are also other colors but green is there as a representative color, but that is the green of Heaven. I mean it is a green that we will be very strongly affected by, so it is not the green we know. "They will be adorned with silver bracelets." They have bracelets on their arms but of course this is not the silver we know, it is silver that people will like a lot. We will see it in the Heaven, I mean the silver in the Heaven is different, it is not the silver we know of. "And their Lord will give them a pure draught to drink." This draught here is not the draught we know. I mean it is alcohol free, a very pleasant, very beautiful tasting, amazingly beautiful smelling drink. "This is your reward. Your striving is fully acknowledged," says Allah.
“They are looking and watching around on couches." Muslims are looking around on couches.
"When they see Muslims.." What do they say to the Muslims, to the students of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), to the ones on the path of Allah? "When they see them, they used to say, 'Those people are misguided'." These are the bigots. They are in the Hereafter inside the hell and what do they say to the Muslims? "Those people are misguided." So the bigots say "these are perverts". But they say that to the people of the Heaven.
Surat Al-Ghashiyya 8-16 " Some faces on that Day will be radiant, well-pleased with their efforts." Look "well-pleased with their efforts." So they have preached religion, talked about Islam, talked about the Qur'an, they are well-pleased in the Hereafter, they are in joy. "In an elevated Garden," people like heights, for instance luxurious high quality houses, they are all built on elevated hills, they are all like the houses of eagles. Looking at the meadow from a height, looking at beautiful scenery from a height is a beautiful thing. That is why the houses of the Heaven are all high, they see the bellows like meadows, the houses of the Heaven are all built at high hills. "..where no prattle is ever heard." I mean there are no such meaningless things.
I watched television while I was on the way, they have put a person there, he constantly speaks in vain, constantly speaks but the things he said were all inconsequential. "In it is a gushing spring." Everything is gushingly continuous in the Heaven, there is no interruption. It is in this world that we see things with an end, there nothing stops, the springs are all gushing. ".. and raised-up couches."
Well, even the Bediuzzaman makes a place for him on the tree, he makes such an environment for himself, right? He makes himself a nice place to sit but it is on a tree. The raised-up couches are much more beautiful.
[Surat At-Tawba; 72]"Allah has promised the men and women of the Muslims Gardens with rivers flowing under them, remaining in them timelessly, forever, and fine dwellings in the Gardens of Eden. " The rivers are flowing constantly, little rivers flowing from inside the houses. ".. fine dwellings in the Gardens of Eden" These are very beautiful houses. Allah creates everything, Allah creates the houses in the Heaven as well. These men, the evolutionist hodjas that we've just mentioned, those who claim that evolution is mentioned in the Qur'an, would not be able to explain the houses of the Heaven. Look, there are houses in the Heaven; are those in the Heaven created through evolution? Allah creates them as well. "And Allah’s good pleasure is even greater." Look, Allah's good pleasure is the greatest, loving Allah, liking Allah that is what you will take the greatest pleasure from says Allah, that is what you take the greatest pleasure; Loving Allah. "That is the greatest victory."
