Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9 TV dated August 22nd, 2012
ADNAN OKTAR: Well my brother in summary; the reason why Islam has not been successful until now is the activities carried out by the two groups of bigots; the first group is the atheist Darwinists and the second group is our classical bigots. Classical bigots presented religion as if it is a vicious, dark system that is inextricable and unlivable. I consider matters related with religion and the Qur'an free of this. And the others have formed a directly atheistic structure with Darwinist and atheistic thinking. May Allah guide both of them to the right path, may Allah give them wisdom. But through the beautiful destiny Almighty Allah created, Islam will prevail. People assume that it would only be possible when they strive for it. But that is not the case. It will all happen because Allah wills so. For instance first Allah made the system of the dajjal (antichrist) prevail and now He will make the system of the Mahdi prevail. But Allah spreads that over time. Allah is the Patient One. One of the names of Almighty Allah is As-Sabur. Allah makes everything progress gradually. For instance, look, at the moment Almighty Allah is drawing the Turkish Nation towards the system of the Mahdi, He makes them get used to it and believe in it and make them be convinced in it. There is no other country in the World with such a strong belief in the system of the Mahdi. The strongest belief is in Turkey; the rate of those who say that they will see Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is 65%. The rate of those who say that they will see the Prophet Jesus Messiah (pbuh) is 68%, insha'Allah. That is a very very high percentage. And Iraq; Allah has warmed their hearts as well after the war. That is an amazing situation. Turkey is again the country in which Darwinism and materialism is most defeated. 95% of the people in Turkey do not believe in Darwinism. That is never been seen in everywhere in the World. Masha'Allah, Alhamdulillah.
