About the Syrian Opposition’s Decision to Set up a Syrian National Assembly against the Assad Regime in Turkey
They seem to have frightened Assad. Because the Syrian secret state is really psychopathic. Since they complete implement what the sufyan wants, they have set up a rabid and maniacal system. Winning him over will not resolve the issue. Even if he said, “you are right, we really must go back to democracy. And I am going to step down,” they would rip his head off. His brother and the rest are also psychopaths. They would kill him at once. Because this is a murder gang, a mafia system, where they all support one another. That is why Iran and Turkey must make an immediate military intervention, without shedding blood. They just need to say, “We are coming.” They will not be able to resist or hold out in any way. That is all. Iran will enter with a few brigades from one side and Turkey from the other, and that is that. That will be it. They will say, “Our aim is not to shed blood. So do not oppose us. We are coming to bring democracy. There must be immediate elections.” And that will be it. Nothing else. Now they have to free Assad. He is terrified there. They are holding onto him like a puppet. He is purely symbolic. The real state there is the secret state, a branch of the alleged terror organization Ergenekon. That is what is in power in Syria now. A godless, bookless, ruthless killing machine made up of maniacs, and army of killers, a mafia organization. But none of them will be crazy enough to try and resist Turkey and Iran. That will be an end to it. They just have to say, “We want elections right away, within a month,” and that will be that. The other way they will tear Syria apart. But look, they will not do this, despite my saying so. They will tear Syria apart, just like Libya. The UN will intervene. Then they will say, “We have lost all these men and rockets, and spent all this money. So, sorry guys, but we have earned a slice of Syrian oil.”
Now they will seize Libya’s oil. I said right from the start that “Turkey should intervene. Establish Turkish-Islamic Union and Islamic Union, and that will be an end to it.” Nobody is opposed to that, but they all have this imaginary fear. “America will never allow it.” There is no question of America not allowing it. Have you ever asked America, “would you allow that?” No question. America wants it. Where did you get that idea from? Israel wants it, too.
Why should America reject a system that is peaceful, loving, brotherly, friendly and embraces all? Why should the American public reject it? For one thing, you are espousing a system that the public and the whole world will agree to. Nobody will object. You will be espousing peace, brotherhood and democracy. You will be saying, “I will protect Christians, Jews and Muslims on an equal basis, and I will also protect atheists.” Nobody will say they are not going to allow that. There can be no question.
The whole world is looking for peace. Those who are seeking peace are in the majority now. Ninety-five percent of people in the world are looking for peace. But since those who seek peace are not allied among themselves, it is those who seek bloodshed who are running the world. They are shedding rivers of blood everywhere. That is the solution for Syria but, Allah knows the truth, they will not do it. Because it is very rare for people to speak about Turkish-Islamic Union, and Islamic Union. But I persistently talk about it. Allah clouded the eyes and understanding of most people. But they do not realize. The way out is clear, goodness sis clear, but they cannot see it. They are ignoring it. There is also an element of cowardice, a sense of fear, of timidity. But psychopaths have no fear. The five percent that are psychopaths are quite fearless. But those who seek peace are generally timid.
We need people with a cause and principles if insincerity is to be eliminated. Sitting on the fence produces weakness. Because people then fear both sides. Both right and left. The branches on both sides appear to have spilt away. But if they are on the right they should be committed to the right.
(About Fatih Altaylı’s article titled “The Post-Cold War Spring” in which he interprets the events in the Middle East as the continuation of the collapse of the Berlin Wall)
It is also Allah Who destroyed the Berlin Wall. It has nothing to do with anything else. Events that take place suddenly and out of the blue are under the control of Hazrat Khidr (as). These things do not happen for no reason. Because they have to be well organized. It is not easy for people to risk their lives and pour onto the streets. Such things will not happen without intervention by Hazrat Khidr (as). But these things will happen if Hazrat Khidr (as) intervenes, under Allah’s influence. Can one not see it is metaphysical? Things are happening at the same time in all countries. What is going on? And they are all being shaped and developing according to the way of the Mahdi. He is unaware of it, but the way of the Mahdi is enfolding the world from all directions, right and left, above and below.
Wherever you have Hazrat Khidr (as), you also have Hazrat Mahdi (as). Hazrat Khidr (as) does not appear alone. Hazrat Khidr (as) is always in the forefront of major events. It is his time in particular. Although Hazrat Khidr (as) has been active in all times.
Surat al-Zukhruf, 1-10
“By the Book which makes things clear.”
What is the Qur’an? It makes things clear. They say, “we could never understand the Qur’an even after 70 years.” “By the Book.” Should we believe in you, or in Allah? Allah says it is a clear book. People say, “No, it is not clear.” “We could never understand it even after 70 years,” they say. Allah says in the Qur’an that the idolaters cannot understand it. He says there is a veil over their eyes and ears so they cannot understand it. So what you are saying is that you are idolaters, that Allah has cast a veil over your eyes and that you could never understand it even after 700 years. But what does Allah say of Muslims? “By the Book.”
“We have made it an Arabic Qur’an so that hopefully you will use your intellect.”
There is a thing called using one’s intellect. How do we do that? They imagine it is enough to use it just around one. Not so. “It is in the Source Book with Us, high-exalted, full of wisdom.”
In everything, in everything created by Allah. There is this thing using one’s intellect, and that is a great event.
“We have made it an Arabic Qur’an so that hopefully you will use your intellect.”
Allah is telling us to think deeply. To think deeply and in great detail.
“Surely,” Why does Allah say that? For the easing of hearts. What is the affliction troubling people? Doubt. People doubt those they love and doubt themselves. May Allah forbid, they doubt this and that and everything. Doubt makes people unhappy. What does Allah say? He first conditions our hearts:
“And surely it is in the original of the Book with Us;”Allah says it is in destiny. In destiny, because people forget and say, “Muhammad (saas) wrote it.” May Allah forbid!” Allah says, “And surely it is in the original of the Book with Us.” So how could our Prophet (saas) have written it if it is “with Us”? Allah says it is in the original of the Book, and with Him. People can then see that the Qur’an was created and existed long before the universe. So one cannot say that “the Prophet Muhammad (saas) wrote it.” Allah dictated it to him.
“high-exalted, full of wisdom.”
The commandment is Allah’s commandment. But how is one to see the wisdom? Through one’s intellect. One cannot understand wisdom without intellect. With no wisdom, it is pointless. Wisdom is very important. I am of course saying this for those who say they are Muslims but who attach no importance to wisdom. But if they do not understand and Allah has clouded their intellects then that is something.
“Shall We then deprive you of the Reminder [the Qur’an] for being a profligate people?” says Almighty Allah.
“Do you want to live without the Qur’an? Do you not desire the dominion of the Qur’an, the beauty of the Qur’an, the moral system of the Qur’an?”
“How many Prophets We sent to the previous peoples!”
Almighty Allah says He has sent many prophets.
“But no Prophet came to them without their mocking him;”
Log onto the internet and it is all mocker, mockery, mockery. They are always mocking one another. Eighty or ninety percent of it is built on mockery. Look on youtube or the chat rooms and it is all mockery. Plain speech is very rare. It is in people’s nature. When the Prophet (saas) came it was mockery right away. Jesus Christ came and it was mockery right away. “When an example is made of the son of Maryamyour people laugh uproariously”, says Almighty Allah. They do not laugh at their stupidities, but at the Prophet Jesus (as) and his qualities.
“and so We destroyed people with greater power than they have”
Allah says, “We destroyed people.” Then they scream out when Allah sends them afflictions. Then they say, “We now believe.”
“the patterns of the previous peoples” Allah says. He says that previous examples are also known.
“If you were to ask them, ‘Who created the heavens and the earth?’ they would reply, ‘The Almighty, the All-Knowing created them’.”
“We believe in Allah,” they say. Allah is emphasizing the hypocritical system.
“It is He Who made the earth a cradle for you.”Allah says the Mahdi (as) made it [since cradle means the Mahdi in Arabic]. “and made pathways for you in it so that hopefully you would be guided.”
The abjad [numerological] value is 2022.
(A response to a question about what the correct attitude toward Jews and Christians should be)
“You who believe! Do not take the Jews and Christians as your friends; they are the friends of one another. Any of you who takes them as friends is one of them. Allah does not guide wrongdoing people.” (5/51)
The aim behind friendship there is to follow erroneous and superstitious beliefs. Not to love people as people. Some crazy types take it in the sense of enmity. But they are spotless people, servants of Allah. Why should there be any hostility toward them? Of course we must be friends, as human beings. But there can be no friendship when it comes to belief in the Trinity. I cannot be friends with belief in the Trinity. There can be no friends with polytheism. Almighty Allah does not speak of people as individuals here. And He does not refer to their true beliefs. But there can be no friendship with superstitious belief. You cannot form an alliance with superstitious belief, or act according to it or bound by it. In that sense.
“You will find that the people most hostile to those who believe are the Jews and the idolaters.”
Now we have the continuation of the verse, “the idolaters.” Do you know who that means? The fanatics. Why do you not speak of that?
“Hostile to those who believe,” to Muslims, to the community of Hazrat Mahdi (as), to the community of Jesus the Messiah, “are the Jews and the idolaters.”
If you talk about the fanatics, the idolaters, that is fine. But why do you split the verse up? Is it referring to all Jews here? For example, a Jewish child is born, tiny and innocent with curly hair. Does the verse also refer to him then? It refers to those who are immoral, cruel, who shed blood, people with accursed characters. There are plain ignorant people among the fanatics. But there are also really wicked and immoral types. They are what this refers to. There are millions of idolaters in the Islamic world. Why not speak of them?
“As long as you do not adopt their faith.”
That is quite explicit. “The Jews and the Christians will never be pleased with you until you follow their religion. Say, ‘Allah’s guidance is the true guidance.’ If you were to follow their whims and desires, after the knowledge that has come to you, you would find no protector or helper against Allah.”
When you meet people they say, “Let us be friends.” Ask them what they want, and they say they want you to ascribe equals to Allah. You go to a bigot and say, “Let’s be friends.” And he says, “Only if you ascribe equals to Allah.” You ask what he wants, and he will say, may Allah forbid, “You must regard my sheikh as Allah.” “You must obey him even if want he says contradicts the Qur’an.” For example, they turn up with a fabricated hadith. You say, “Look, this contradicts the Qur’an.” But they say, “No it doesn’t, and if it does, then it is above the Qur’an.” Now I am saying that this really happens. You would be amazed. I can point to references. The great majority of theology teachers know this. Almighty Allah says, “this is lawful.” “No, it is unlawful,” they say. Allah says, “it is unlawful” and they say, “No, it is lawful. Look, there is superstition, he says against it.” How can you be friends with such a person? You cannot be friends. Many fanatics are hostile to me, for instance. Why? Because I do not follow their religion, the religion of bigotry, of polytheism. I say, “the Qur’an is sufficient.” I say I abide by the Sunnah of our Prophet (saas), I tell them that is enough. That is why they are hostile toward me. That is the only reason. And I prove it one by one. There are Christian bigots and Jewish ones. These people become your enemies if you do not accept their religion word for word. Freemasons are the same. In other words, unless you are irreligious and an atheist, may Allah forbid, unless you sign up to masonic principles, they are your enemy. What does an intelligent Muslim do? He attracts them toward his own faith. Only then he becomes their friend.
Why did our Prophet (saas) marry a Christian woman? It would appear to be diametrically opposed to these verses, to their logic. Our Prophet (saas) also married a Jewish woman. Allah says, “You can marry Jewish and Christian women.” There is a verse about that. Why do you not read those verses? ”You will find the people most affectionate to those who believe are those who say, ‘We are Christians’,” says Allah in a verse from the Qur’an. Why do you ignore that? They do not analyze or read the verses as a whole. They just read one.
There is a verse that says, “Do not approach the prayer when you are drunk.” It would be very wrong to read this as an injunction as “do not approach the prayer”. “Do not approach the prayer when you are drunk”. You have to take the two parts together. Almighty Allah says we can eat food prepared by Christians. How can you eat with someone who is not your friend? How can you marry people who are not your friends? Being friends as individuals is one thing, and being friends with their face is something very different. You can be friends as people, with their body and soul. You can be friends with those of their beliefs that are true and right, but you do not agree to their erroneous beliefs. And you cannot be friends when you do not agree with them. Rejecting that means not being friends, insha’Allah. If you do not act along those lines, then you are not friends. How can one be friends with polytheism? For example, one’s father is good in all respects. But he drinks like a fish and acts in a disgraceful manner. How can one be friends with that aspect of him? But you can be friends with all the other aspects, insha’Allah.
“Today all good things have been made lawful for you. And the food of those given the Book is also lawful for you and your food is lawful for them. So are chaste women from among the believers and chaste women of those given the Book before you, once you have given them their dowries in marriage, not in fornication or taking them as lovers. But as for anyone who rejects faith, his actions will come to nothing and in the hereafter he will be among the losers.” (Surat al-Ma’ida, 5)
I ask these ignorant people. What is this verse about? What business has someone you regard as an enemy, as accursed and not your friend, got in your home? You can you eat in their home? But the verse tells us to eat with them. Allah recommends it. But if they are enemies, why let them into your homes? Why it with them if you are not their friend? It means you are friends in personal terms. But you do not share their beliefs, insha’Allah. How can you marry them? But Allah says you can marry them. I can marry a Christian woman, for instance, or a Jewish woman. There is a verse about that. Since you regard these people as accursed, one should be their enemies, not their friends. How can you marry them? Why did our Prophet (saas) get married. Why did he take a Jewish wife? Why did he take a Christian wife? Why does Allah set this out so explicitly in the verse? It means that we can be their friends in human terms. You just do not subscribe to their beliefs. That is what the verse is saying. There is nothing incomprehensible about it.
What do the bigots want? Lack of affection, lack of compassion, disrespect and bad behavior. Do you think we will go along with that? You are describing the way of the antichrist. We follow the way of the Mahdi. We are followers of Hazrat Mahdi (as), insha’Allah.
You show your father deep love and respect, even if he ascribes equals to Allah. You respect your brothers who ascribe equals to Allah. They talk foolishly and say the most outrageous things about the Qur’an and the faith. But you still kiss your father’s hands and feet, because that is where the money comes from, your own self-interest. We will explain to them the truth of those matters where they go wrong gradually, insha’Allah.
Prophets have lovely voices. The Messenger of Allah (saas) had a lovely voice. That beloved ancestor of mine, our Prophet (saas), had a very high quality and mellifluous voice. People who listened to him used to melt away, masha’Allah. The Prophet David (as) and the Prophet Solomon (as) had splendid voices. Those places have remained thus genetically, since they are the lands of the prophets, masha’Allah.
The bigot mindset, may Allah forbid, seems really hellish to me. What a strange world they have. However did they build it? Why did they want such a world? It is amazing how they felt the need for such a loveless, polluted and rotten world. It is a trick of satan’s. Wherever there is anything filthy they adopt it as their own. I listen to them talk, and whatever is filthy, they talk about that. Surely religious matters are beyond that.
