Explanation of the hadiths by Mr. Adnan Oktar
It has been related from Ali ibn Ahmed Ubeydullah bin Musa, Alevi Ahmed Bin Huseyin, Ahmed bin Hilal, Abdur Rahman bin Ebu Necran and Fuyezl bin Eyyup that Suadir Sairafi stated the following: "I've heard Abu Abdullah Imam Sadiq (as) say the following: "The Master of this issue (Mohammed Mahdi) has resemblance to Prophet Joseph." He has similarities with the Prophet Joseph (pbuh). That is something stated many times in the hadiths. And in the Qur'an - in Surah Yusuf - the system of the Mahdi is explained in great details in a covert manner.
"The brothers of the Prophet Joseph were very intelligent and smart people, they went to Joseph and spoke to him and even though they are his brothers, they didn't recognize him until he introduced himself." Right, now even though the people of Mohammad are all Muslims, even though they are all knowledgeable, they will not recognize Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) just like his brothers did not recognize the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) back then; that is what the verses of the Qur'an refer to. Even though they are intelligent, even though they have good concentration, as a wonder from God, as a miracle, even though Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will be openly among them, God says that their insights and perception will be clouded and many people will not be able to see. Most of them will not be able to recognize Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). This is what is explained in the story of the Prophet Joseph (pbuh), that is what is meant.
"They only realized who he is after he said; I am Joseph." That is also what the Qur'an says. They realize that he is Joseph only after he said, "I am Joseph" or else they are not able to recognize him, even up close. "Based on this foundation, why does this ummah suffering in such commotion deny that Almighty God, Who is Omnipotent, sometimes hides His Sign (The sign of Mahdi) from them." God is the One Who conceals Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh): But some people say, "There is no such thing, we would have spotted him instantly if he were around." Actually God will conceal him. Just like He concealed the Prophet Joseph (pbuh), He will conceal Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and it will not be possible for them to spot him.
"Joseph was a ruler in Egypt and the distance in between his father (Jacob (pbuh)) and him was not longer than 18 days' traveling. Had Almighty God willed so, He would have make his place known to his father." That is because both of them are Prophets and the accounts state that God would have made him known if He willed so. "So how is it possible for this ummah to deny that God can create what He has previously created for Joseph, also for His Sign (The Sign of Mahdi)?
"Your Master (Mohammad Mahdi) whose rights have been usurped, who has been suppressed, will come." Look, "...whose rights have been usurped, who has been suppressed." What will be the characteristic of Mohammad Mahdi? His rights will be usurped, he will be suppressed. Actually that is why he is the Mahdi. That is one of the reasons why he is the Mahdi; he will suffer a lot, he will be suppressed greatly. "Your Master (Mohammad Mahdi) whose rights have been usurped, who has been suppressed will come and join them, he will wander around their markets and walk on their carpets" Now that is highly meaningful. There were very few carpets at the time of our Prophet (saas). How can you walk on carpets back then? They were very rare. There were very few, small carpets. There were not that many carpets to walk on. They were all very small. There were not that many carpets, even in our Prophet's house and the ones he had were very small ones. However, nowadays even markets, almost all buildings and even here now there are wall -to- wall carpets. In houses, in the corridors, there are carpets. "Yet they will not be able to recognize him." As a miracle from God they will not be able to recognize Hazrat Mahdi. In the verse, God says they "...recognize him as they recognize their own sons." Even though he is upfront, "...they will not be able to recognize him." Bediuzzaman says that as well. He says, "People will not be able to recognize him when he appears. He may only be recognized through the light of faith." Also for Jesus Messiah, Bediuzzaman says, "His close, educated elite students might recognize him through the light of faith."
"Just like Almighty God lets Joseph introduce himself.." Almighty God inspires Joseph, He tells him to say; "I am Joseph" and they then recognize him. "... until He lets him (Mahdi) to introduce himself, this will continue like this." That means Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will step forward and talk about the portents of the system of the Mahdi at length. In a roundabout way, people would recognize Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) because he will introduce the system of the Mahdi, or else they wouldn't be able to recognize him. That means Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will be the one who will explain the system of the Mahdi in the best manner. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will be the one who will explain the system of the dajjal in the best manner as well. He will be the one who will explain the End Times in the best manner. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will also be the one who will explain the facts leading to faith and the miracles of the Qur'an in the best manner.

Related from Abdulwahit bin Abdullah, Ahmet bin Muhammed bin Rabbah, Muhammed bin Isa, from the father of Hasan Bin Ali Battani, and he related from Mufezzel that Ebu Abdullah Imam-ı Sadiq (pbuh) said the following; "Imam Mahdi, who will be commissioned with this mission, will have a house which will be known as Bayt al-Hamd (The house from where thanks are sent to God)'' He will have a known, recognized house in which thanks will be sent to God, one in which God's name is praised and that house is known as Bayt al-Hamd. The house Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) lives in is a well-known house, our Prophet (saas) knows about that house. I mean that is a house specifically created in destiny, it is not any random house. It is a protected, secure house. It has been created specifically in destiny. And our Prophet (saas) gave that house a name; "...the house in which thanks are given to God", he calls it; "Bayt al-Hamd" and our Prophet (saas) says this by means of revelation. He learned that from Gabriel, and Gabriel learned it from God Himself. The name of the house is "Bayt al-Hamd." The house in which people constantly say; "Insha'Allah, Masha'Allah, Alhamdulillah."
"There will be a candle which will burn until the day the sword of the Messenger of God will come out." And there is an emphasis on a candle. Look, there is a name which defines that house, a name that our Prophet (saas) stated by means of revelation. And there will be a candle. Until when will this candle be there, it says? Until he (Mahdi) appears with the sword of our Prophet (saas). Where is the sword? Here in Istanbul, it is in Topkapı. "There will be a burning candle until the day he will appear with the sword of the Messenger of God." And he calls the house "Bayt al-Hamd" because this was foretold through revelation, there is a sign in it as well, one that a man of understanding would recognize.

Explanations of verses from Surat Al-Anfal by Mr. Adnan Oktar
Surat Al-Anfal, Verse 62
"If they intend to deceive you, God is enough for you. It is He Who supported you with His help and with the Muslims."
"If they intend to deceive you, God is enough for you." That means; when Muslims have a trick played on them, when people intend to deceive them, God says; "I am the One Who creates them all anyway." "God is enough for you. It is He who supported you with His help and with the Muslims. "
Surat Al-Anfal, Verse 74
"Those who have faith and have made hegira (from oppression) and strived in the Way of God and those who have given refuge and help, they are the true Muslims. They will have forgiveness and generous provision."
"Those who have faith and have made hegira and strived in the Way of God and those who have given refuge and help, they are the true Muslims." That means there is a Muslim and then there is a true Muslim. God takes these true Muslims as His basis. Their saying "I am a Muslim" is not enough. What is required to be a true Muslim? They have to have faith, they have to flee from oppression if necessary. For instance, if they are living among persecutors, if they are living among tyrants, if people around them do not make mention of God, if they are persecuting them, if they are dragging them into evil things, Muslims would separate from them. They leave. They strive in the Way of God, they work in the Way of God. They communicate religion, they preach the matters of religion, they help people and explain beauties. And there are people who help harboring those who are striving in the Way of God; they are opening their houses for them and helping them financially, sustaining support for their food and clothes. They are supporting the believers materially and spiritually. Those who give refuge and help, support them in every aspect, those are the real Muslims. "They will have forgiveness and generous provision." Almighty God says that He will forgive their sins and give them a generous provision both in this world and in the Hereafter. He says that He will not leave them in a difficult position. He says that He will give them abundance in this world as well and that He will give them the necessary means in their struggle. So God says, "You do not need to say 'How can I distribute books, how can I give food to those people in need? How can I ensure their accommodation? How am I going to give refuge to them?' during your struggle on My Way." God says, "I will be the Guarantor. If you strive in the Way of God, if you work on this path, I am your Guarantor. But you just need to sincerely strive in the way of God. Communicate the message of religion. I will give you all your needs. And you will be pleased both in this world and in the Hereafter." God says that there will be a generous provision, not just provision. That means God says that He will give them a good, high quality life. That is because the word "provision" has a broad meaning. It means all sorts of goodness, all sorts of beauties.2013-12-03 11:27:49
