(In response to an e-mail from a viewer saying, “We are always saying the Ottoman Empire will be rebuilt, but you talk about establishing Turkish-Islamic Union.”)
The Ottoman Empire is over, my brother. Our Prophet (pbuh) speaks of a new road when the Mahdi comes. But the glory of the Ottomans and the Seljuks and the Golden Horde will be remembered when the Mahdi (pbuh) comes. Not just of the Ottomans, but all of them. Are we to say the Ottoman Empire has been rebuilt when we have Islamic Union? The Ottoman Empire will obviously not have been rebuilt. But the glory of the Ottoman Empire will return as a legacy.
(In response to a viewer who asks, “Would it not be better to make a prayer of request and ask Allah for Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh)?”)
People say they know things, that Allah has revealed them. If you claim revelation, you have fallen into unbelief and abandoned the faith, may Allah forbid. And if the other person believes you, he has also fallen into unbelief.
The Qur’an is full of protective verses about women. “I will call them to account for that little child who was buried alive,” says Almighty Allah. “That girl,” He says. The fanatics of the time hated girls. They would immediately bury female babies alive when they were born. Allah says in a verse that, “when the baby girl buried alive is asked.” Fanatics have no qualms about behaving so horribly. They have an unbelievable hatred of women.
(In response to a viewer who asks, “What do you think about Alawites?”)
One thinks of people who love Hazrat Ali (pbuh), fine people who are full of love. They speak of their love of Allah and the Prophet (pbuh) in music. They love Hazrat Ali (pbuh) and the Ahl al-Bayt. They love flowers and birds and animals. They are fine and considerate people, Alawites. Our Sunni brothers are also luminous, and our Jafari brothers. They are all immaculate Muslims.2012-04-09 21:31:48
