Harun Yahya: indonesians Are Preparing For The Golden Age

The Indonesian Ministry of Religious Affairs carried a report titled “Harun Yahya: Indonesians Are Preparing for the Golden Age” on its web site on 16 January, 2009. The report carried extracts from an interview conducted with Adnan Oktar by the official Indonesian news agency, Antara.

Some extracts from the article read:

Dr. Adnan Oktar, the Turkish intellectual known across the world by his pen name Harun Yahya, told Indonesian Muslims to get ready to welcome the Golden Age within the next 10 years.

During the interview with Antara, conducted on Friday in his residence alongside the Bosphorus in Istanbul, he said, "If you are united and not divided, then insha’Allah Indonesia will be the center of an Islamic renaissance in Asia. We in Turkey are carrying out the same ‘renaissance’ for Europe’.”

Harun Yahya is a respected Muslim intellectual and plays a fundamental role in the struggle to disseminate Islam in Turkish society. “Islam is now on the rise in Turkey and Indonesia,” he said.

Harun Yahya (representatives) visited Indonesia for the International Islamic Intellectuals Conference two years ago and witnessed the growth of Islamic understanding and practice in Indonesia… Harun Yahya, who has produced hundreds of books and CDs on the subject of Islam and whose works have been translated into many languages, said, “The party atmosphere in your country appears divided, but insha’Allah there will be union in the future.”

He emphasized the importance of Muslims in Turkey and everywhere else in the world striving to gain strength through democratic means, not through terror, violence and anarchy. “Islamic principles are compatible with Islam. Let us strive through democratic means” he advised.

"The majority of Muslims favor peace and moderation. Terror and violence are not in the spirit of Islam” he said… He stated that through their reigns, Ottoman sultans had exhibited great tolerance toward Christians and Jews.

Indonesia and Turkey can play an important role in defeating terrorism and overcoming the problem of the fear of Islam in the West. They must campaign to prevent misunderstandings and preconceptions in these matters.

Dr. Harun Yahya said, "Our mission is for the West to understand true Islam and not misunderstand it.”
