  • (About the Islamic Peace-keeping Force)

The Islamic peace-keeping force is something also mentioned by Bediuzzaman. Islamic zeal is constantly on the rise. These initiatives will take place this year and in the future. Bediüzzaman talks of a large Islamic NATO to be established very soon. It is a feature of the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as). There will be an Islamic common market and an Islamic NATO. But since it comes about very slowly and gradually, people will be unaware of it. Sometimes they will be clearly aware of it. Development is continuing. We will see an Islamic NATO in a few years’ time, and an Islamic common market.

But they complain, they will say; “That is impossible, we can never unite. What should we do?” At the end of the day, the way of the Mahdi will be brought up. Muslims must absolutely have a leader. Initiatives aimed at an Islamic NATO. But it never happened. There have been moves toward an Islamic common market, but that never happened, either. It cannot happen without Hazrat Mahdi (as). The body cannot live without a head. There has to be a brain. And it will be fine when there is one, insha’Allah.

  • Music is something based on rhythm and regular movements, that originates in vibrations and effects our enjoyment of rhythm. Our souls delight in rhythm. For example, there is symmetry in human beings, and we like it. There is symmetry in butterflies and bees. Rhythmic sounds, rhythmic speech or a rhythmic poem pleases us. Rhythm pleases us wherever it is. Music also stirs our hearts with the rhythmic plucking of the strings and its rhythmic sounds. There is no reason for that to be unlawful. Why should it be unlawful? There is no reason. Indeed, it is an instrument in raising people’s faith, in their finding strength in religion and in the opening up of the soul. If it comes to life with love and increases love of Allah, then music must be an excellent thing. But some people are heedless, far removed from faith, and general culture and art are unimportant to them. So if they listen to music day and night, that time is wasted. But if music nourishes and opens up the soul, if it enhances one’s closeness to Allah, then it is an excellent, restorative thing. Why should it be unlawful? But you cannot have songs that are pessimistic or encourage rebellion against destiny, of course. But songs that make people happy are good.

Surah Yusuf,

  • Alif Lam Ra. Those are the Signs of the Clear Book.

We will soon learn what these code letters mean.

2- We have sent it down as an Arabic Qur’an so that hopefully you will use your intellect.

This means the Qur’an is very clear and accessible. People say we can never understand the Qur’an even if we study it for 40 years. That means that Allah has closed their minds and brains. The Qur’an is an accessible book.

3- We tell you the best of stories in revealing this Qur’an to you,..
I have not given every story, I have not told you them all, He says. Allah says He reveals the finest and most important ones.

..even though you were unaware of it before it came.

In other words, since it is based on pure revelation, there is nothing missing and no excess in it, it is completely accurate.

Allah reveals it from secret knowledge. Does Allah reveal secret knowledge? Yes, he does.

4- When Joseph told his father, ‘Father! I saw eleven bright stars, and the sun and moon as well. I saw them all prostrate in front of me.’

The aspect of the verse referring to the End Times is this; the ‘star’ here refers to the star of Hazrat Mahdi (as). There is the comet Lulin and Halley’s comet. There is a reference to two comets. Allah draws our attention to the number 11 (1 and1). The number eleven consists of two 1s (11), doesn’t it? It refers to September 11. Happened on September 11. Eleven (11), then the comet. Eleven (11); a corruption of smoke and dust, the comets; Halley’s comet and the comet Lulin. He lists the signs of the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (as) one by one. Glorious. “The sun and moon.” An eclipse of the Sun. Solar and lunar eclipses at 15-day intervals in the month of Ramadan. One, two, three, four; four words side by side. Four separate words about the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (as). We are given the names of the most vital and important portents of the End Times, one by one. “…I saw them.” What does that mean? We will see them. I have seen them. Isn’t that right? When asked, I say “I have seen them.”

“I saw them all prostrate in front of me.”

What does prostrate mean? It means to obey and also to be bound or devoted. It means that Allah placed celestial bodies into Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) hands for the global dominion of Islam. Allah says, “I created September 11, I created eclipses of the Sun and Moon in the months of Ramadan, I placed them at Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) command, I caused them to appear as portents of the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (as) and I sent the two comets.”  That is one sense of the meaning of the verse. Allah emphasizes 1 plus 1, or 2; Eclipses of the Sun and Moon took place twice. Comets appeared twice. There was that major event on September 11, insha’Allah.
5- He said, ‘My son, don’t tell your brothers your dream.
That means that things will happen when the oppressors, the evil and the jealous are told about the way of the Mahdi. It means they will resist you when you tell them about Hazrat Mahdi (as), the way of the Mahdi or the End Times. It means that many bigots and frauds will oppose Hazrat Mahdi (as).

lest they devise some scheme to injure you.

That means they will also strive to have him arrested and imprisoned. They will slander and seek to isolate him.

Satan is a clear-cut enemy to man.

Satan, the dajjal, is a professed enemy of man. He says they will come under the dajjal’s (antichrist) command. Seventy thousand figures wearing turbans will come under the command of the dajjal and fight against Hazrat Mahdi (as). The verse is referring to that.

6- Accordingly your Lord will pick you out,

Abjad (numerological) calculation  gives a date of 2018. In other words, He will make you the Mahdi, the leader. He will teach you the interpretation of the words. In other words he will have a perfect ability to explain and interpret. You will expound the details most perfectly. Not through his own ability, but through Allah’s creation.

A9 TV; 6 April 2011 (2nd broadcast)

  • My brothers must follow the time very carefully. I have previously given a date of 2012, by Allah’s choosing. Insha’Allah. Astonishing things will happen in 2012. 2014 will be very, very different. Let them write this down on a piece of paper. 2017 will be very, very different. We will be together, insha’Allah. By Allah’s leave, we will establish Turkish-Islamic Union. Turkey will grow. It will be very great, insha’Allah. Turkey will be the center of the world.
  • Our brothers must properly identify insincere people. I am amazed at some who cannot make that distinction. They are obviously frauds and dishonest. They look you right in the eye and lie. And people listen to them. It is easy to identify someone who is speaking honestly and telling the truth. That is why honest people must watch over, protect and support one another. Honest people are few in number and very valuable. Allah will help sincere people to love, protect and watch over one another. They will still rule the world, even if there are only a handful of them. Sincerity is a vital issue.

“…Our Messengers came to them with Clear Signs …” (Surat al-Ma’idah, 32)

 Abjad  calculation gives a date of 2016.

You who believe! Have fear of Allah…” (Surat al-Ma’idah,35)

There are people who say they love Allah but do not fear Him. You cannot be virtuous and rational unless you fear Allah. One must absolutely fear Allah. “…and seek the means of drawing near to Him;” (Surat al-Ma’idah, 35) Spiritual guides and scholars, and Hazrat Mahdi (as) especially, are instruments. What will Hazrat Mahdi (as) do? He will be instrumental in people coming to believe. Seek! Allah says. That means they will find if they seek.

  • There are not that many honest and sincere Muslims. That is why honest, sincere, well-intentioned and genuine Muslims must insistently tell the truth. For example, I sincerely want to tell people (about Islam). Allah gives me a television channel, internet sites and radio channels. Allah has created the internet in the End Times. He created it to serve Hazrat Mahdi (as), as His instrument. And I speak as a follower of Hazrat Mahdi (as). It makes life very much easier. There has literally been a technological explosion. Wonderful and excellent developments are taking place.
  • There are thousands of Muslims with scorpions in their pockets. (meaning they don’t spend for Islam). They could serve Allah very well if they so chose. They can hand out books and hold conferences. It is really easy. Very, very easy. Even if you can’t write, there are books already written, and you can make advertising posters and place advertisements on the television. But they just want to get more and more for themselves. The result is that the work done is not really enough. But even that is for the best. Because if it all happened at once, we would not have the End Times. It is essential these things do not all happen at once in order for there to be the End Times, insha’Allah.

Surah Maryam,

66- Man says, ‘When I am dead, will I then be brought out again alive?’

Weakness of faith is rife among a great many people, especially in the End Times. The hereafter has been a question for people and djinn ever since the world began. Most djinn do not believe in resurrection after death. A person walks through a walk or goes from America to Turkey in one second, but still does not believe in the existence of the soul. I do not believe I will be resurrected after death, he says. He is in his own world; he passes through walls, through the floor, goes to the center of the Earth but still says: “I do not understand and cannot believe in this idea of resurrection after death.” Most people are like that. They have no faith.

67- Does not man recall that We created him before when he was not anything?


“You did not exist at one time. I created you in a moment,” says Allah. “It will be the same in the hereafter. I will create you in a moment,” says Allah.

68- By your Lord, We will collect them and the satans together. Then We will assemble them around Hell on their knees.

I shall also resurrect them, Allah says.

They are brought to the edges of hell. They all kneel. Muslims remain standing. There is a herder with them. There is light to the right and before them. The unbelievers are brought to the edges of hell and made to kneel. They are kept waiting there.

69- Then We will drag out from every sect the one among them most insolent towards the All-Merciful.

Crazed, fanatical, bloodthirsty maniacs such as Marx, Lenin, Darwin and Abdullah Ocalan.

70- Then it is We Who will know best those most deserving to roast in it.

Allah says He knows them all. Muslims are there, but the unbelievers remain on their knees.

71- There is not one of you who will not come to it.

“Everyone will come to the fields of hell,” says Allah. In other words, “you will all see hell,” He says.

That is the final decision of your Lord.

“There is no other way,”says Allah, “I will certainly do this,” He says.

72- Then We will rescue those who had fear...Those with fear (of Allah) are taken away from the land of. “Come,” they are told. And Allah takes them away.

“…and We will leave the wrongdoers in it on their knees.”

“You sit and wait,” they tell the unbelievers. “You come,” they tell the Muslims. Muslims are taken from that place and brought to paradise. The unbelievers wait on their knees. They are later dragged off to hell.

73- When Our Clear Signs are recited to them, those who are unbelievers say to those who have faith, ‘Which of the two parties has the better position and the more illustrious gathering?’

The irreligious mock Muslims, saying, “we are superior.”

74- How many generations We have destroyed before them who had finer furnishings and a better outward show!


“They had impressive buildings and dressed very finely, they looked very fine,”says Allah. “The means at their disposal were all perfect,” He says.

75- Say: ‘As for those who are astray, let the All-Merciful prolong their term;…”

He gives opportunities. He gives opportunities, a period of time, to pharaohs and dajjals, to that hypocritical teacher who will appear in Istanbul, to that fanatical hypocrite, to that smaller dajjal in miniature. He gives them time to come to their senses. Allah could take their souls at once, if He so chose, but He does not. The same with the dajjal. He gives time.

“…until they see what they were promised,…”

What is promised?  The Mahdi (as), Jesus the Messiah (as),

“…whether it be the punishment or the Hour. Then they will know who is in the worse position and has the weaker troops.’

76- “Allah augments those who are guided.”

In other words, they have the attribute of the way of the Mahdi. Allah gives happiness to the Mahdis and further strengthens them. The word Mahdi comes from ‘guidance,’ someone who guides to Allah, someone who is a guide to happiness. All Muslims are a kind of Mahdi when they attain salvation, and Allah increases their felicity.

..by giving them greater guidance. In your Lord’s Sight, right actions which are lasting are better both in reward and end result.

For example, they pray, all the time; they behave virtuously, all the time. They have fortitude, all the time, and they are affectionate, all the time.

In my opinion, Gog and Magog appeared in the First and Second World Wars. A terrible slaughter. They killed more than 300 million people. That was a slaughter on a scale that had never been seen before. Since that was the worst slaughter ever, it must also have been the appearance of Gog and Magog. For Gog and Magog to appear again they would perpetrate a slaughter 10 times worse than that. For example, rather than 300 million people, Gog and Magog will have to slaughter at least a billion. Therefore, the events that slaughtered 300 million people, that devastated thousands of town, that left hundreds of millions crippled, that left children orphaned, that inflicted poverty and hunger, that ruined the world and drowned it in corruption were World Wars I and II. So I believe that Gog and Magog were World Wars I and II. Nothing worse than that has ever happened. There has never been an irreligious corruption as bad as Darwinism and materialism. No other trend has made the whole world captive and turned 99% of people away from Allah.
