I see no other such great man with a cause in the world at the moment. Insha’Allah, his colleagues will take up our teacher’s work where he left off. I expect great things from Fatih [his son] in particular. Because his father brought Fatih up very well. He has excellent manners, moral virtues and character. He is also well educated.
What our teacher Erbakan used to talk about (his words regarding Turkish-Islamic Union) are essential elements of the way of the Mahdi. Look at the hadiths. His words are identical. He perfectly described all the elements of the way of the Mahdi. Peace, brotherhood, justice, Islamic Union, the unification of the Islamic world, opposition to war. I always thought Turkish industry would grow slowly. It was dependent on overseas. An industry based on assembling things. That was what I used to think as a child. But then Erbakan Hodja said we were going to move toward heavy industry. That really delighted me. And he really did what he said.
May he live in paradise. In my opinion, he and Rasulullah (saas) have sat down to eat together at a table in paradise, insha’Allah. He was a very sweet, fine man. Someone I liked very much. I loved him and he loved me, masha’Allah. He always recommended my books at all his meetings. Erbakan was famous for always recommending the books of Harun Yahya. No other leader has ever recommended books. I have never seen them say you should read this or that and be enlightened. But wherever he went to Anatolia, he would always tell people to read books by Harun Yahya, to distribute them and tell people about them. The whole community knows that, masha’Allah.
I now expect Fatih to appear like Sultan Muhammad the Conqueror [Fatih]. I hope he watches out and takes good care of himself. Because he [Fatih] is very important to and precious for us. He is a legacy to us from Erbakan Hodja.
Gaddafi is very proud. It would be dangerous to humiliate him. We need to find an answer, not by humiliating, but by letting him keep his pride. If he were humiliated, he would go crazy. He could kill himself, or anything. He might commit suicide. By letting him keep his pride, by calling on him to do the rational thing, to be reasonable. It is important to get Turkey involved. Things will then calm down. It is important to say he will maintain his spiritual leadership. Otherwise it would be very humiliating. He would regard going to a foreign country as being thrown out. That would terrify him. His life also needs to be guaranteed. Both his and that of his family. And a guarantee needs to be given that his honor will be protected. If he thinks or feels he will be humiliated, he will panic. If he panics, he will go crazy. And you have seen what he does when he goes crazy. He loses his mind. But if he is told he will stay on as a spiritual leader. He could be quite comfortable in Turkey. Someone who likes him, an intermediary, has to be found. Someone he will listen to. Because he has a tendency to bad behavior stemming from madness. That could reach a peak and he might say crazy things. But an intermediary might calm him down so he speaks rationally.
From Imam Jafar:
Serving the cause of Hazrat Mahdi (as), handing out books and other things. These are 2 million times more valuable, he says. This is for us to attain happiness.
When the Qaim appears (Hazrat Mahdi (as)) there will be no postman between people and their imam. HE (HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)) WILL ADDRESS THEM FROM HIS OWN ABODE, AND THEY WILL LISTEN TO HIM SPEAK, AND WILL EVEN SEE HIM. (Muntaqab al-Azhar, p. 483)
There will be no intermediary to establish contacts. Envoys would go out in the time of our Prophet (saas). But it says there will be no need for them in the End Times. There will be no need for envoys carrying news or walking around and saying that the Mahdi (as) said this or that. He will address the world from his own home. It is not like in my time, he says. There were envoys and postmen in my time. People on horseback used to spread reports of what the Prophet (saas) had said. It will be different in the time of the Mahdi (as). He will speak from his home. People will hear him speak. It says they will even see him. What does that mean? It means television. We have that technology in this century, insha’Allah.
Erbakan Hodja was a kind of Mahdi. He was instrumental in millions of people coming to faith. He was instrumental in their loving the Qur’an and Islam. He was regarded as the spiritual leader of all Muslims across the world. Everyone was agreed on that.
11- There is a group of you who propagated the lie.…”
This means that there are cheats and liars among Muslims. The Qur’an is referring to that. It says there may be a community acting together, from within you.
“…Do not suppose it to be bad for you; ...”
12- Why, when you heard it, did you not, as men and women of the believers, instinctively think good thoughts and say, ‘This is obviously a lie’?
13- Why did they not produce four witnesses to it? Since they did not bring four witnesses, in Allah’s Sight, they are liars.
14- Were it not for Allah’s favour to you and His mercy, both in this world and the Hereafter, a terrible punishment would have afflicted you for your plunging headlong into it.
15- You were bandying it about on your tongues,…
16- Why, when you heard it, did you not say, ‘We have no business speaking about this. Glory be to You! This is a terrible slander!’?
Right from the start, they say this is nothing to do with us. We would never utter such a slander. That would be totally unbecoming. Emphasis is very important in speech. You are committing slander, and the facts are different. You must say that they are committing a terrible slander, that you must come to your senses, as you are behaving disgracefully, you are behaving ruthlessly. Emphasis is very important in the Qur’an. Almighty Allah attaches great importance to emphasis. Because that opens up the human mind.
17- Allah warns you never to repeat the like of it again if you are believers.
If a person is irreligious, he will do it. He is irreligious. But if you are a believer; “Allah warns you never to repeat the like of it again if you are believers.
Allah does not permit you to do it a second time. He says you must not do it again. That is a good thing for social order. There is no gossip, so everyone can relax. No young girl can be defamed. That is a very good thing. It means people can be perfectly secure.
22- Those of you possessing affluence and ample …to their relatives and the very poor…”
This refers to all those around one, be they relatives or friends or people one sees; the reference to poor people needs no clarification.
26- Corrupt women are for corrupt men and corrupt men are for corrupt women, Good women are for good men and good men are for good women.
