Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9TV dated August 19th, 2012
ADNAN OKTAR: "Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will come after such a big strife of what is forbidden is regarded as lawful." Islam would then be in such a strange state that the commands of the Qur'an would be inverted. That is also what the Bediuzzaman says. He says that Hazrat Mahdi will appear only after this. "The succession.." That is the spiritual leadership of the whole Islamic world, ".. will come to him while he is sitting at home." He is always at home, he is at his house all the time. The succession of Hazrat Mahdi will be established while he is at his home. Note that everything happens while he is at home, the pledges of allegiance will be given while he is at home, his discourses take place at his house. The accounts state that he will rule the world from his coach. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is very humble, yet they do not make him repeat anything he says, when he orders something it is all done. For instance he says, let us say, if people are poor in Iraq, he tells all the Muslims to ameliorate the place and that is all done. The whole matter would be solved with a single word and things never get prolonged. I mean there will be no bureaucratic obstacles and the task will be done directly. "The succession, the leadership of the Muslims, will come to him while he is sitting at home and he will be the most auspicious individual on earth during his time." (Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi'Alamat al-Mahdi al-Muntadhar, p. 37) So the people will know him as the most auspicious individual and will love him the most in the world, in the whole world.
