Highlights from Mr. Adnan Oktar's interview on 15 February 2012

A9 TV; 15 February 212

The reason I concentrate so much on the subject of the Mahdi is there are so many miracles, regarding the Mahdi, that is why. For example, he [the Prophet (saas)] says, “War will break out in the lad known as Harasta.” “A major event will happen in the time of the Mahdi (as), and there will be ruin there,” he says. That has happened, and that is a miracle. “This is a sign of the coming of the Mahdi,” he says. It is a marvelous thing how our Prophet (as) revealed this 1400 years beforehand.

Maimonides, Mishnah Torah, The Laws of the Kings and Their Wars, Chapter 11 (based on the Torah)

In the future, the Messianic king will arise and renew the Davidic dynasty, restoring it to its initial sovereignty. He will build the Temple.

The Torah testified to his coming.” The Mahdi. The Torah. He is also in the hadiths of our Prophet (pbuh).

One should not presume that the Messianic king must work miracles and wonders, bring about new phenomena in the world, resurrect the dead, or perform other similar deeds.” It says this is very definitely not true.

Halaka, chapter 4

He will then improve the entire world, motivating all the nations to serve God together..”

 “When the true Messianic king will arise and prove successful, his position becoming exalted and uplifted, they will all return and realize that their ancestors endowed them with a false heritage..” The Mahdi will put these things right, it says.

David and all Israel were celebrating with all their might before the Lord, with castanets, harps, lyres, timbrels, sistrums and cymbals.” (2 Samuel 6:5) The Prophet David (pbuh) also sings songs. Cymbals, tambourines and drums make a lot of noise.

Now David was clothed in a robe of fine linen, as were all the Levites who were carrying the ark [of the covenant], and as were the musicians, and Kenaniah, who was in charge of the singing of the choirs.” Shirts of fine linen. Linen is good. “David also wore a linen ephod.  So all Israel brought up the ark of the covenant of the Lord with shouts, with the sounding of rams’ horns and trumpets, and of cymbals,” trumpets and drums, in other words. “and the playing of lyres and harps.” (1 Chronicles 15:16) This Ark of the Covenant will soon be found.

As the ark of the covenant of the Lord was entering the City of David, Michal daughter of Saul watched from a window. And when she saw King David dancing and celebrating,” King David gave himself up to the music and danced there. “Sing for joy to God our strength;” in other words, we act with the power of Allah, he says. “shout aloud”, he says the joy of faith must appear. “to the God of Jacob! Begin the music, strike the timbrel, play the melodious harp and lyre.” (Psalm, 81:1,2)

I will praise You with the harp for Your faithfulness, my God; I will sing praise to You with the lyre…” There is also music in Mevlevi ceremonies. “My lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to You— I whom You have delivered my tongue will tell of Your righteous acts all day long…” (Psalm, 71:22-24)

“Let his faithful people rejoice in this honor and sing for joy on their beds.” (Psalm, 149:5) Let them experience that joy even in their beds, it says.

(About writings showing that the world will prepare to enter the Golden Age in 2012)

These freemason friends went to that place in Mexico. The native people there say that 2012 is not just the end of an era, but will also be when certain wise, learned and blessed people from outside their own culture and traditions appear, and that it will be the sign bringing the world a Golden Age. That is also written on monuments there. They still say that. Writings dating back 2000 years. It says that Muslims will begin entering a Golden Age in 2012.

“You will be able to reveal some of what is allowed to be seen and heard of the freemasons in 1966, but wait for the sign. The Mahdi will come long before you think.” “But few people must know this. Because it will be hard for even a few people to understand the Mahdi,” it says. “But the results are not that important. He is already in the hearts of those who await him. They will find the way. Always act on the side of goodness. Do not think of the results. The results will concern us. They will accept our message of hope and faith.”

The Assad regime is opposed to Islamic Unity. It is a communist regime. Darwinism and materialism are taught in official textbooks. Young people are brought up as communists, under pressure from the state. The Assad is violently opposed to the way of the Mahdi. It is violently opposed to Islamic Union. They also fear Israel. That is all. Israel knows they are cowards.

Surat al-Hijr, 5;

No nation can advance its appointed time nor can they delay it.”

Almighty Allah is addressing our Prophet (pbuh);

They say, ‘You, to whom the Reminder has been sent down, are clearly mad’.”

They tell our Prophet (pbuh) that he is crazy. What did they tell me? “You are also crazy,” they said. What did they say to Bediüzzaman? “You are crazy.” What do they tell our Prophet (pbuh)? “You are crazy.” So they also tell the pioneers of the Mahdi they are crazy. And the followers of the Mahdi. And the mahdis. Bediüzzaman is the mahdi of his century. And they called him crazy. Our Prophet (pbuh) is the mahdi of all times. And they say he is crazy.

Surat al-Hijr, 7;

"Why do you not bring angels to us if you are telling the truth?”Since you are the mahdi of all times?” they say to our Prophet (pbuh). “There should be an angel over your head telling us you are the mahdi and a prophet,” they say.

Surat al-Hijr, 8;

The angels only descend with the truth and then they would be granted no reprieve.”

Allah says there will be no more reprieve when that happens. Judgment will happen when the angels come down. Allah says He will destroy.

Surat al-Hijr, 9;

It is We Who have sent down the Reminder and We Who will preserve it.”

Who will protect the Qur’an? Allah will protect it. Who will be His instruments? Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and the Prophet Jesus (pbuh). And the Qur’an is being protected now and they can do nothing against it. 

Surat al-Hijr, 10;

We sent Messengers before you among the disparate groups of previous peoples.”

We have sent prophets and mahdis.

Surat al-Hijr, 11;

No Messenger came to them without their mocking him.” They also mocked Bediüzzaman, and they will mock the Mahdi, the Mahdi who will come in the End Times.

Surat al-Hijr, 12;

In that way We insert it into the evildoers’ hearts.”

In other words, He says, “I will create and place it in the hearts of the mockers and those who do wrong.” Why? This is specially created by Allah so the Mahdi may have a high station, so our Prophet (pbuh) may have a high station.

Surat al-Hijr, 13;

They do not believe in it, even though the example of the previous peoples has gone before.” Why do they not believe? They have no faith. What is the greatest issue? Signs leading to faith. What do I talk about day and night? Signs leading to faith. That is the most important thing. What do people say to me? Tell us about the rules of prayer. But people have no faith. Faith comes first.

Surat al-Hijr, 14-15;

“Even if We opened up to them a door into heaven, and they spent the day ascending through it, they would only say, ‘Our eyesight is befuddled! Or rather we have been put under a spell’!”

He says they still will not believe. Do you see how great the problem of faith is? Why do I talk about the signs leading to faith. People presumably see this.

Surat al-Hijr, 16;

We have placed constellations in heaven and made them beautiful for those who look.” How can you observe it? Through a telescope. Allah is speaking about observers. People who do not look cannot see. They look, and the sky is brightly colored, sparkling like jewels. The constellations are always like that. Allah has given them a specific form. He maintains that forms. It is very odd how the constellations are never deformed. They revolve around themselves and around the Milky Way and around their own systems. But the regularity within the constellations is never impaired. Taurus and Aquarius are always the same. They never move a jot to the right or left or up or down. That beauty is maintained.

Surat al-Hijr 17;

We have guarded them from every cursed satan –“ You have been protected from bad news and doing evil, Allah says.

Surat al-Hijr, 18;

except for the one who listens stealthily, and he is followed by an open flame.” When secret knowledge descends into the sphere of life, when it ceases to be secret, then satans can receive it. They can sometimes eavesdrop and receive it that way. But again by Allah’s will. But then, He says, an open flame will follow. The flame will not leave him. And it will strike him when it catches him. It will catch the thieving satan from the air.

Surat al-Hijr, 19;

“As for the earth, We stretched it out and cast firmly embedded mountains in it,” What is this, this sign leading to faith being described? “We stretched it out…” what must I do? I will investigate this stretched out system. How? Through zoology, biology, paleontology, anthropology or whatever else comes to mind. Biogenetics. “and cast firmly embedded mountains in it…” the creation, the structure of mountains. “and made everything grow in due proportion on it.”

The verse speaks about examining everything. From the structure of wheat to an orange flower. We can see the artistry of Allah in everything, and this is a reference to a sign leading to faith.

Surat al-Hijr, 20;

And We put livelihoods in it both for you and for those you do not provide for.”

Allah says We give you your daily bread, but you are not obliged to look after, say, ants. He says He also provides for them. And for wolves and jackals and birds. Do we have a responsibility to feed sparrows, for instance? They are very fit and healthy. I look at pigeons and seagulls, they are all bright and lively, and Allah provides for them all. None of them go hungry. Quails and pheasants are all very healthy. They are even healthier in the wild.

Surat al-Hijr, 21;

There is nothing that does not have its stores with Us;” Allah says that everything happens under His control and with His creation. and We only send it down in a known measure.” How much rain will fall is pre-ordained. How much daily bread will be provided is pre-ordained. Allah says that everything is known beforehand. And everything happens as appointed in destiny.

Surat al-Hijr, 22;

We send forth the pollinating winds and send down water from the sky and give it to you to drink. And it is not you who keep its stores.”

Human beings do not create rain. Nor this system. Allah creates them. He says we are not their protectors. He says He does that. In destiny, because rain is created in our brains. There is rain on the outside, but we can never see that rain on the outside. Only the rain in our brains. No human being can have direct experience of the rain on the outside. Or the snow on the outside. They always see the rain and snow in their brains. When one says it is raining, that is a feeling of water in the brain. You cannot directly experience the rain on the outside. We send forth the pollinating winds,” Muslims are told this and must investigate it. So they need a knowledge of chemistry and physics and so on. “pollinating” – we have to know this. We send forth the pollinating winds,”  what is pollinated? Rain. There is no rain without wind. Plants can only reproduce through the wind. They cannot exist without the wind. What property does the wind have? It is pollinating. That is one of its properties. We send forth the pollinating winds,” science has recently established this. There is a technical aspect to the wind. You need one for the other. Plants’ male cells reach the female cells via the wind.

Surat al-Hijr, 23;

It is We Who give life and cause to die and We are the Inheritor.”

Someone may say, “The doctor saved my life.” But Allah says, “I cause things to live.” Someone may say, “He died because the doctors neglected him.” But it is Allah Who causes people to die. People do not survive because of doctors’ skill, nor die from the lack of it. They may die in either case. That is destiny. “We are the Inheritor.”  When they die, all they have goes to Allah. Everything belongs to Allah.

Surat al-Hijr, 24;

We know those of you who have gone ahead and those who are still to come.”

Allah says He created all that happened in the past. He says He created what they call the Stone Age and all of them. Someone was saying the other day; “Our forefather used to carve things with axes in the stone age, and eat meat with their hands.” “Raw meat,” he said. As if he had been there. They get really carried away, like primary school kids. Grown-up people produce a picture of primitive man eating an animal leg and lighting a fire in the mouth of a cave, as if they had seen it with their own eyes. There are very few cave drawings, so on what basis are you talking? No fabric has survived. Fabric falls apart. Wood does not survive. Copper and iron rot away. Only stone remains. So we look at stones. And there are stones that cannot be made even with today’s technology. Such huge blocks you could not budge them with a bulldozer. You could not move them with any equipment. But they moved rocks weighing hundreds of tons around. Smooth as if they had been carved with a razor. They could not be carved like that with just a chunk of iron. They are totally regular, without even the slightest crack. As if they had carved them with lasers. It is inexplicable. Allah is saying that “I have created and I know all the thing that happened in the past.” There are many verses of the Qur’an that set out the importance of history.

Pharaoh asked the Prophet Moses (pbuh) about the creation of man. Because he was an evolutionist. “How were people in the most primitive times created?” he asks. And the Prophet Moses (pbuh) says it is all in a book in the Sight of the Lord. That verse is also a reference to my Atlas of Creation. My Atlas of Creation is all about the past. Look, it is all written in a book in the Sight of the Lord. That means destiny. But it can also be taken as meaning the Atlas of Creation.

Surat al-Hijr, 25;

Almighty Allah refers to history. It is your Lord Who will gather them. He is All-Wise, All-Knowing.” Look, Allah decides. He has the power of judgment. He is the Judge of judges, and is All-Wise. He creates everything in complete detail and for the best. Nobody who does not know that wisdom can understand. It is your Lord Who will gather them.” He will bring them back to life. For example, we speak, and then our conversation takes place once again when it is broadcast. We come here, and I make the same jokes. We drink from the same glasses, and nothing changes. We are brought back to life in one sense. And it is Allah Who gathers us again. With the gathering there, you are gathered in two dimensions. In the hereafter you are gathered three-dimensionally, with your soul. Allah is showing a small example of how He gathers. Allah shows how easy it is for Him. You can be gathered ten times, each times through Allah’s creation.

Surat al-Hijr, 26;

We created mankind out of dried clay formed from fetid black mud.” Dried clay. What they make porcelain out of. He says He created mankind personally. He is saying He made a statue of man. Just like a human being. A statue in complete detail. He says it was then fired. A normal statue. Then the statue suddenly began walking. That is what happened. But not because Allah actually needed a statue. For example, my friend was not here a few minutes ago. He came down the stairs and suddenly appeared before me. But if Allah chooses He can suddenly give life to a pottery statue. People pretend not to understand that.

Surat al-Hije, 27;

We created the jinn before out of the fire of a searing wind.”

 This refers to a kind of electricity.

Surat al-Hijr, 28;

When your Lord said to the angels, ‘I am creating a human being out of dried clay formed from fetid black mud.”

In other words, I shall create a human being.

Surat al-Hijr, 29:

"When I have formed him,” he is still in the form of clay.and breathed My Spirit into him,” Allah takes the clay and breathes His spirit into it. Then that piece of clay comes alive and assumes human form. fall down in prostration in front of him!” When he begins walking in the form of a human being, fall down in prostration in front of him!” Allah says.

Surat al-Hijr, 30;

Then the angels prostrated all together – every one of them,” when this happens, all the angels, all the angels gathered there, prostrate themselves before him.

Surat al-Hijr, 31;

except Iblis. He disdained to be one of the prostrators.”

He is an entity who was there. He refused to prostrate himself. But when Allah tells all the angels there to prostrate themselves, that is what they should do. He should also prostrate himself.

That is why Almighty Allah asks.

Surat al-Hijr, 32;

 “He said, ‘Iblis, what is it that prevents you being among the prostrators’?” Allah asks why he does not prostrate himself. He demands his justification.

Surat al-Hijr, 31;

Iblis disdained to be one of the prostrators.”

He refuses. Then Almighty Allah asks, Iblis, what is it that prevents you being among the prostrators?” He demands to know why. If Iblis tells him, then Almighty Allah will respond.

Surat al-Hijr, 33;

He said, ‘I will not prostrate to a human being whom You have created out of dried clay formed from fetid black mud’.” Look at the impudence there. He has gone totally insane. This is the first demonstration of a showy and impudent character. Humans have this showy, impudent nature. You can see that classic character here. I will not prostrate to a human being...” He owes everything to Allah, but he is proud.

Surat al-Hijr, 34-35;

Allah “said, ‘Get out from here, you are accursed.

The curse will be on you till the Day of Reckoning’.”

Satan is cursed. But if you say that all Jews are cursed, then you are also including the good ones among them, the ones who are Muslims, in that. And that is unlawful.

Surat al-Hijr, 36;

“He said, ‘My Lord’,” Look, he does not deny Allah, grant me a reprieve until the Day they are raised again.”

Surat al-Hijr, 37-38-39:

Almighty Allah said, ‘You are among the reprieved until the Day whose time is known.’ He said, ‘My Lord, because You misled me,” do it if you must, Allah says. I will make things on the earth seem good to them and I will mislead them all, every one of them.” In other words, I will encourage them toward a Darwinist, materialist mindset, he says. And he has deceived and perverted the whole world. Satan has kept his word. Ninety-nine percent of the world is now irreligious.

Surat al-Hijr,40;

"except Your servants among them who are sincere.” People who follow Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and the Prophet Jesus (pbuh), insha’Allah. The figurative meaning.

Surat al-Hijr, 41;

“(Allah) said, ‘This is a Straight Path to Me’.”

This is the truest and best thing for the test, insha’Allah.

Surat al-Hijr, 42;

"You have no authority over any of My servants except for the misled who follow you.” Apart from Darwinists, materialists and atheists. He says he has the power to compel them.

Surat al-Hijr, 43;

"Hell is the promised meeting-place for all of them.”

Allah says He will put them into hell.

Surat al-Hijr, 44;

It has seven gates and each gate has its allotted share.” Allah says it is already determined in destiny. Look, it has seven gates. There is no need for satan to do this. Allah makes him His instrument. He says that He has already set aside the people that satan will lead astray. These people are already in hell while this conversation with satan takes place. Satan is also in hell, and the people he has led astray. It is long since over and done with. The gate may be a gate of light. Or maybe an electromagnetic field.

Surat al-Hijr, 45;

Those who have fear of Allah will be amid Gardens and Springs:”

Good people will be among springs and gardens.

Surat al-Hijr, 46;

Enter them in peace, in complete security!” Goodness and security and ease. Security; nobody will attack them or swear or make life unpleasant. No threats. Nobody will watch them. There will be no imprisonment or persecution. Nothing.

Surat al-Hijr, 47;

We will strip away any rancour in their hearts –There is not the slightest anger in a Muslim’s heart. Everything has departed. I will remove all negative things,” says Almighty Allah.brothers, resting on couches face-to-face.” They are face-to-face so they can enjoy talking together. Because they have so much to talk about. Just the age of the Prophet Noah (pbuh) is one of 900 years. A different subject every day. The ages of the Prophet Job (pbuh), the Prophet Abraham (pbuh), Isaac (pbuh), Jacob (pbuh) and Adam (pbuh) and the things that happened. There will be so many things that Muslims have learned off by heart. They will see so much over again that it will last for all eternity. This is one of the things they will most delight in. You know how you talk to people in cafes and things? This will be one of the things people most delight in, the events of the past, a knowledge of history. What happened and where? What did Bediuzzaman do, and where? Where did he go? What did Mawlana Khalid do to his followers? What did Abdul Qadir Gilani do? What did Imam Rabbani do? Where did he go? These details will all take up very much time.

Surat al-Hijri, 48;

They will not be affected by any tiredness there,do we become tired here? Yes. One cannot feel alert unless one has slept for eight hours. Fatigue arrives. But there is no sleep in paradise. Our Prophet (pbuh) says. “Sleep is the brother of death.” Death itself dies in paradise. Never again. And so there is no sleep, either, insha’Allah. Look, They will not be affected by any tiredness there, it is a great blessing for a person to know no tiredness. Tiredness is a person’s worst problem. They do jobs at home and get tired. They talk and become tired. They watch TV and become tired. Everything tires them. That is specially created. But when people see they will not be tired, they will jump for joy. They will run and run and never get tired. They will move around and eat and drink and never tire. They will be with their spouses in paradise and will never tire. They will always love one another. They will travel to the furthest places and engage in detailed research and take part in the finest entertainments. They will know not the slightest tiredness. “and they will never be made to leave.” There is an instinct about existing forever, and that is what Allah is stressing. He says, “You will never have to leave.” It would be unbecoming of His glory for Almighty Allah to say you can stay for 10 trillion years, but then you will have to leave. But this gives peace of mind. That is why Almighty Allah regards it as becoming of His honor for them to stay for all time.

Surat al-Hijr, 49;

“Tell My servants that I am the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful,” He tells our Prophet (pbuh) to tell people of this. “I am the Most Merciful,” He says. They need not be fearful because if their sins. He says He will forgive and protect them.

Surat al-Hijr, 50-51;

but also that My punishment is the Painful Punishment.

And tell them about the guests of Abraham,” says Almighty Allah. Be careful over what is lawful and unlawful in order to avoid My wrath. Obey this, Almighty Allah says.


Surat al-Hijr, 52;

When they came in to him, they said, ‘Peace!’ He said, ‘Truly we are afraid of you’.” They say ‘Peace’ and that they are afraid of him. Because he is so handsome and clean and well-groomed. His expression is also very sharp. They realize there is something about him. No such person is ever there. The people there are dirty and wretched and covered in dust.. But blessed individuals do not sweat. They never tire. They are sharp as razors. They are high-class and top-quality, and they speak most properly. They openly state they are afraid. And they do not speak only for themselves. 

Surat al-Hijr, 53-54;

They said, ‘Do not be afraid. We bring you the good news of a boy of great knowledge.’ He said, ‘Do you bring me this good news despite the fact of old age having reached me? What kind of good news are you bringing me’?”

Even though I am old.

Surat al-Hijr, 55;

“They said, ‘We bring you good news of the truth, so do not be among those who despair’.”

There is no question of being bound or affected by the laws of physics or biology. Allah’s might is superior to these. Allah has no need for such things to be bound by physical laws. He creates those laws Himself. So there is no question of that, they say.

Surat al-Hijr, 56;

“He said, ‘Who despairs of the mercy of his Lord except for misguided people’?” Who despairs of Hic mercy? He asks. He says he will never do such a thing. He immediately pulls himself together.

Surat al-Hijr, 57;

He added, ‘What is your business, messengers’?”

In other words, why have you come? What do you want?

Surat al-Hijr, 58;

They said, ‘We have been sent to a people who are evildoers –“

In other words, they say, “We have cone to destroy them.” They say they have come for a mass killing. They say they will destroy them all, en masse.

Surat al-Hijr, 59;

"with the exception of the family of Lot, all of whom We will save,”

They say they will spare the family of Lot but destroy everyone else.

Surat al-Hijr, 60;

"except for his wife. We have decreed her to be one of those who stay behind.”

They know about her. She will not be saved. They say that she will die.

Surat al-Hijr, 61-62;

When the Messengers came to the family of Lot,

he said, ‘You are people we do not know’.”

Look, he says they are unknown. He notes that fact.

Surat al-Hijr, 63;

"They said, ‘We have come to you with what they had doubts about’.”

They say they had doubts. Now they will be his. They mean there can be no such mass punishment. Now we will show you what will happen, they say, insha’Allah.

Surat al-Hijr, 64;

"We have brought you the truth and we are certainly truthful men.” You can trust us. The people who have come for destruction.

Surat al-Hijr, 65;

"Travel with your family in the dead of night,” They tell them not to lose time. Because they will immediately do what they have come to do. Look, immediately. Muslims do not put off auspicious work.  “following behind with them in front of you. None of you must look back. Go where you are ordered to.” Do not turn round, they say, insha’Allah.

Surat al-Hijr, 66;

We revealed to him the command We had decreed: that on the following morning the last remnant of those people would be cut off.”


(In response to a question from a viewer; “We always see attractive women and men who are handsome like you? What is the purpose behind this?”)

We remind you of paradise. We show you the artistry of Allah. We show you what honest, pleasant and devout people look like. How lovely and luminous they are. How well-mannered and lovable and joyful.


The image of a high-quality and rational Muslim has enfolded Europe and the world. When the word Muslim was mentioned, people used to think of “someone like the Taliban who kills and maims and bombs, a suicide bomber.” Opinions have also changed with regard to Israel. A handful of people have served as models for the world, thanks be to Allah.

(In response to a viewer who asks “If Allah says ‘I have created with two hands,’ [that is to say, Allah breathed His spirit into man], then the soul will not be punished when he dies. So I do not think Allah will cast His own light into hell.”)

“I do not think,” you say. Allah does not compel us to become Muslims. I am a Muslim of my own free will. I have also asked unbelievers and irreligious people, “do you feel a power compelling you?” And they have all said not. So that is complete justice. You cannot grasp Allah’s secret. But let me tell you this: Allah is omniscient. And infinitely good. It is He Who teaches us mercy. It is He Who teaches us love, compassion and forgiveness.

But there is one important point here. Allah says, “…They have eyes, but they do not see.” Of the people of hell. “… Their ears do not hear,” He says. They suppose, this is just metaphor. “…The eyes of their hearts are blind,” He says. He says their awareness is dulled. “ …You imagine they are living. But they are dead.” Is that enough? Understand this, if you can. There is a secret there. One must seek shelter from Allah against being like that, from becoming like that.
