STATEMENTS BY SAID NURSI TO THE EFFECT THAT HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) IS AN ‘INDIVIDUAL,’ NOT A ‘COLLECTIVE PERSONALITY’:

1.    To oppose him, A LUMINOUS INDIVIDUAL (1ST REFERENCE) CALLED MUHAMMAD MAHDI (2ND REFERENCE) OF THE FAMILY OF THE PROPHET WILL COME TO LEAD the people of sainthood and perfection, who are bound to the luminous chain of the Family of the Prophet, and he will kill the current of dissemblers, which will be the collective personality of the Sufyan, and scatter it. (Letters / Fifteenth Letter - p. 79)
 
2.    THAT SUPREME PERSON (3RD REPETITION) of the Last Days will be a descendant of the Prophet (saas)… (The Rays / The Fourteenth Ray - p. 440)
 
3.    THAT PERSON (4TH REPETITION) will make a program of research already conducted by that community and writing, by which he will have fulfilled his first duty. The force and spiritual host on which that duty depends consist of students who are in full possession of the qualities of purity and loyalty and solidarity.  No matter how few in number, they are regarded as being as powerful and valuable as a spiritual army (Emirdag Addendum, pp. 266-267)
 
4.    … And I told them: "I am not a sayyid [descended from our Prophet (saas)]. Descendants are unknown in this time. Whereas that GREAT PERSON (5TH REPETITION) of the End Times will be from the Ahl al-Bayt [be descended from the Prophet (saas)](Emirdag Addendum, p. 267)
 
5.    I believe I am a servant of this WONDROUS PERSON WHO (6TH REPETITION) will appear in the future, a rear-guard to set a background for him, and a pioneering soldier of that GREAT COMMANDER (7TH REPETITION)... (Barla Addendum, p. 162)

 
6.    Since His custom has proceeded in this way, certainly, at the time of the greatest corruption at the end of time, He will send a luminous person as both the GREATEST INTERPRETER (8TH REPETITION) OF THE LAW, and THE GREATEST RENEWER (9TH REPETITION), AND RULER (10TH REPETITION), and HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) (11TH REPTITION) and as GUIDE (12TH REPETITION), AND SPIRITUAL POLE, and THAT PERSON (13rd) REPETITION) will be from the Family of the Prophet. (Letters / Twenty - Ninth Letter - Seventh Section - p.515)


 


 




The above qualities used in this passage from Bediuzzamanın clearly refer to those of a single individual.
 
7.... luminous person

8.... greatest interpreter of the Law

9... ruler

10... Mahdi

11... guide

12... spiritual pole

13... person

 
14.     Until the true lords of the broad sphere of life, THE MAHDI (14th REPETITION) and HIS STUDENTS come in the End Times, by Almighty Allah’s leave, and broaden that sphere and cause those seeds to flourish. (The Ratifying Stamp of the Unseen, p. 172) (Kastamonu Addendum, p. 72)
 
15.    These three qualities being present at one time IN ONE PERSON or community, and their being perfect and not impairing one another seems very remote, or even impossible. In the End Times, they can only come together in the GREAT MAHDI (15TH REPETITON) and the collective personality of his community, who represent the luminous community of the Ahl al-Bayt [the line of the Prophet (saas)]. (Kastamonu Addendum, p. 139, The Ratifying Stamp of the Unseen, p. 186)
 
16.     …… The collective personality of the holy COMMUNITY REPRESENTED BY THE MAHDI (16TH REPETITION), has three duties. (Emirdag Addendum, p. 265)
 
17.    The most important and greatest and most valuable of the three duties of THE PERSON AWAITED BY THE COMMUNITY AND WHO WILL COME IN THE END TIMES (17TH REPETITION) is to spread the true faith and to save believers from deviation. (The Ratifying Stamp of the Unseen, p. 9)
 
18.   
It appears from this truth that THIS HOLY PERSON (18TH REPETITION) WHO WILL COME LATER(The Ratifying Stamp of the Unseen, p. 9)
 
19.   
... There will be such intellectual trends at that time even IF THAT PERSON (19TH REPETITION) WHO IS TRULY AWAITED AND WILL COME IN A CENTURY’S TIME comes at that time, since he takes everything for his own account... (Kastamonu Addendum, p. 57)
 

20.    ... YET THAT GREAT PERSONAGE (20Th REPETITION) OF THE END TIMES WILL BE FROM THE AHL AL-BAYT [descended from the Prophet (saas)]… (Emirdag Addendum, 247-250)
 
21. In the narrations are various different prophecies about THE MAHDI (AS) (21ST REPETITION) (The Rays / The Fifth Ray - Second Station - p.112)
 
22.    ...Said stated in his protestation, saying: “I am not a Sayyid, AND THE MAHDI (22ND REPETITION) WILL BE A SAYYID,” thus refuting them (The Rays / The Fourteenth Ray - p. 407)
 
23.   ... But flowers appear in the spring, and the ground has to be prepared for sacred flowers such as that. I understood that with this service of ours we are preparing the ground for THOSE LUMINOUS PEOPLE (23RD REPETITION). (The Ratifying Stamp of the Unseen, p. 189)
 
24.    ... Certainly, the elevated ardor in that huge force will surge up and HAZRAT MAHDI (24TH REPETITION) SHALL COME TO LEAD IT, guiding it to the way of truth and reality. (Letters / Twenty - Ninth Letter - Seventh Section - p. 516)
 
25.    ... ... a guide, a kind of Mahdi and reformer comes in every century, but in terms of discharging each of these three duties, none have received the title of THE GREAT MAHDI (25TH REPETITION) OF THE END TIMES. (Emirdag Addendum, p. 260)


 
26.    ...one interpretation of these various narrations is this: THE GREAT MAHDI (26TH REPEPTITION) WILL HAVE NUMEROUS FUNCTIONS. He will carry out duties in the world of politics, the world of religion, the world of government, and in the many spheres of the world of jihad (intellectual struggle) ... (The Rays / The Fifth Ray - Second Station - p. 112)
 
27.    … HAZRAT MAHDI WILL HAVE NO TIME AND BE IN NO STATE TO PERSONALLY (27TH REPEPTITION) protect believers from depravity (prevent them straying from the true path) and to perform that duty for the whole world, leaving nothing behind, and with much research... (Emirdag Addendum, p. 266-267)
 
28.    ...TO GIVE THE NAME OF THE INDIVIDUAL (28TH REPEPTITION) TO COME recalls his three duties at once, it would be wrong… (The Ratifying Stamp of the Unseen, p. 9)
 
29.    …THAT PERSON (29TH REPETITION) WILL STRIVE TO PERFORM HIS (30th REPETITION) GREAT DUTY with the help of all believers and the assistance of the Islamic union, and of scholars and teachers and of millions of loyal people from the Ahl al-Bayt (the line of the Prophet (saas)) present powerfully and in large numbers every century. (Emirdag Addendum, p. 266-267)
 
30. ...We anticipate from the divine mercy that HIS (31st REPETITION) community and the      community of sayyids will fullfill those duties.  (Emirdag Addendum, p. 265)
 
31.    ... THE PEOPLE who will disperse the darkness in a century’s time may be the students of HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) (33RD REPETITION). (The Rays, p. 605)
 
32.    THE MAHDI'S (34TH REPETITION) LUMINOUS community... (Letters / Twenty - Ninth Letter - Seventh Section - p. 516)
 
33.    Also, the CIRCUMSTANCES OF THE GREAT MAHDI (35TH REPETITION) do not fit the narrations alluding to the earlier Mahdis, and these have become allegorical Hadiths. (The Rays, p. 582)
 
34.    ... THOSE INDIVIDUALS (36TH REPETITION) OF THE END OF TIME will be known through the insight and the light of belief. (The Words / Twenty-Fourth Word - Third Branch - p. 355)
 
35.    Moreover, they imagined the mighty works belonging to the collective identity or community which those individuals represent to be in their persons and expounded them in that way, so that they ascribed a form to them whereby when THOSE EXTRAORDINARY INDIVIDUALS (37TH REPETITION) appear, EVERYONE WILL RECOGNIZE THEM.. (The Words / Twenty-Fourth Word - Third Branch - p. 355)
 
36.    ..The fact that the fifth and sixth signs are connected personally to HAZRAT MAHDI (38TH REPETITION) and that this command refers to THIS GLORIOUS INDIVIDUAL (39TH REPETITION) is a truth like a powerful Sun that will eliminate the skepticism of those who harbor doubts and reinforce their credence.  (Barla Addendum - Letter No: 111 - p. 1452)
