It is astonishing that Almighty Allah has put the solution to everything in religion. They can neither find a solution for the high cost of living nor to terror. They can not find any solution for enmity or lovelessness. Thousands, millions of people starve to death. Just one tenth of the money allocated for military readiness would suffice for the perfect nutrition of all. In the absence of religion, the spirit of the world disappears. contracts cancer and dies.
2012 is a very important year. While it was supposed that the religion of Islam has died out, it is now coming close to reign in the world. Darwinism was thought to be very stout. Now it has turned out to be weak. It is like the struggle of an ant and a lion. Now they have turned to be an ant and Muslims have become the lions. There is no need even for a claw.
It is unbecoming for bigots to get into a panic. Bigots are weak and poor. There is no need to attach much importantce to them. Allah relates us the subjects by means of bigots. There needs to be a reason. There exists an important issue about which we need to enlighten the people. It normally does not occur to our minds. Allah makes a bigot instrumental for it. A bigot objects to something; from this we understand that our nation has to be enlightened about it.
When a Christian embraces Islam he assumes that he will abandon Prophet Jesus (as) and Hazrat Maryam (as). He thinks that he is abandoning everything good related in the Gospel. The fact is that by embracing Islam, he also embraces everything good in the Gospel, and in addition to this, he leaves everything corrupted in it. He attains perfection by adopting those beautiful things that he had not known before. He does not abandon anything from Chrisitianty, he simply becomes a real Chrisitan. He becomes a Christian following Prophet Muhammad (saas). A genuine Muslim. In other words, it is unbecoming for him to fear that he will no longer be a Christian. The entire issue is being a follower of our Prophet (saas), he in no way abandons the Gospel. That is to say, it is unbecoming to fear that he will cease to be a Christian. We do not ask them to abandon the Gospel. He can take every part of the Gospel that is right and live by it in the best form. We are also doing the same.
(In response to an audience member who said, “I remember this moment”)
Allah creates such wonders now and then so that we can understand the destiny.
(Mr. Adnan Oktar explains Surat al-Kahf 36-39)
“I do not think the Hour will ever come. But if I should be sent back to my Lord, I will definitely get something better in return.." (Surat al Kahf, 36)
What do they say? “The Day of Judgment will not come. It will come only millions of years from now. We come from eternity and we are going to eternity.” The purpose here is to avoid the Day of Judgment, the portents of the Day of Judgment and the End Times. This mindset also existed in the time of the Companions of the Cave. This is how they avoided the End Times, how they covered it up and the Day of Judgment.
“I do not think the Hour will ever come. But if I should be sent back to my Lord, I will definitely get something better in return." You know there are such people who say, “If there is the Hereafter, He will place me in the best place.” You may have heard it very frequently. That mindset of disbelievers has always been the same in every phase of the history.
His companion, with whom he was debating, said to him, ‘Do you then disbelieve in Him who created you from dust, then from a drop of sperm, and then formed you as a man? (Surat al Kahf, 37)
What were they saying first while communicating the message of Islam at that time? First, Creation. How human beings were created. There is a clear response to the creed of happenstance, coincidence. So they also follow our method. They provide evidence regarding Creation.
He is, however, Allah, my Lord, and I will not associate anyone with my Lord. (Surat al-Kahf, 38)
In other words, he says that he will not make them as idols for himself. He says that he does everything to earn Allah’s good pleasure. He does not want to appear fine to his school friends, his friends at the club. He does not make them his idols. He wants to live as a servant to Allah, insha’Allah.
Why, when you entered your garden, did you not say, “It is as Allah wills, there is no strength but in Allah”?
That means that when one enters a garden, even if there is a single grape, that place is simply a garden. So what would a Muslim say in this case? Masha’Allah. There is no god other than Allah. Masha’Allah. How nicely has our Lord created. This is obligatory. If a person has a house with a garden and if there is any grape or other fruit, then while entering that garden he needs to say, “Masha’Allah. There is no god other than Allah.”
“Though you see me with less wealth and children than you possess.” (Surat al-Kahf, 39)
In the End times, people boast by using their children and possessions. The fact is however, in time kids die, possessions disappear. On the Day of Judgment, everything will be reduced to nothing.
