Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9TV dated September 6th, 2012
ADNAN OKTAR: We are in a chapter of the End Times. The End Times is going on in full course. Almighty Allah is drawing attention to Himself, to His Mahdi, to the Prophet Jesus Messiah, to the Unity of Islam every single day. Every single day, Almighty Allah says; "Return to me. I exist and I am One, I have all the power, I am the One Who creates everything." " I will make Islam rule the world," says Almighty Allah. "You will come to see this," He says. This is also stated in the verse; [I seek refuge with Allah from the satan] "We will show them Our Signs on the horizon and within themselves until it is clear to them that it is the truth." We will see both Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and the Jesus Messiah (pbuh) and we will know them and recognize them, and we will see the Unity of Islam.
What did our Prime Minister say? Well done to him! He said; "We will perform our prayers in Damascus in the Umayyad Mosque." Alhamdulillah. This is strictly the style of the Mahdi, this is strictly the words of a student of the Mahdi. This -Hazrat Mahdi's performing prayers in Damascus- is a point mentioned in the hadiths. Masha'Allah and our Prime Minister says that we will be performing prayers in Damascus in the near future. That is because Damascus is in the hands of the antichrist(dajjal) at this moment.
