Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Interview at HarunYahya.TV on May 25th, 2010
ADNAN OKTAR: "In the name of Allah, All-Merciful, Most Merciful." Our brother said, "Could you please explain this surah?" Insha'Allah. We can explain within our knowledge inspired to us by Allah insha'Allah. I seek refuge with Allah from the satan. "In the name of Allah, All-Merciful, Most Merciful. By the charging horses panting hard, striking sparks from their flashing hooves, raiding at full gallop in the early dawn, leaving a trailing dust-cloud in their wake, cleaving through the middle of the foe." Now, what did we do? We went and made a riot in Switzerland, didn't we? We kicked up a dust. We cleaved through the middle of a community with this, it was a complete cleaving. It was a complete manifestation of this verse of the Qur'an. And there is an intellectual struggle here, the verse is mentioning a struggle anyway.
Yes, "By the charging horses panting hard." Muslims will be excited, right? They will run about, look they are very alive. "Striking sparks from their flashing hooves." Allah mentions a colorful and lively life, not laziness, right? A very rattling life. "Raiding at full gallop in the early dawn." Muslims are not sluggish; they riot in the morning. He goes to preach the religion, he does a good deed, a beauty and goes to preach the religion. He explains the facts, the truths. He explains the invalidity of Darwinism and materialism. He explains the Qur'an but this is like a riot for those who don't believe. Thus, in France, what did they say after our books were distributed to all of France over a single night? They said, "Riot at night." They said, "It was a riot."
It is called a riot in the news title. What does it say in the verse? "Raiding at full gallop in the early dawn." Right? It is the same insha'Allah. "Leaving a trailing dust-cloud in their wake." We left a dust cloud in their wake. But of course the verse is layer by layer. "By the charging horses panting hard." For instance, here there is also a sign in the Qur'an to people engaging in sports; panting hard. Being excited, right? Opening one's breath for instance. "Striking sparks from their flashing hooves." The Qur'an gives a sign to our heroic army's military power. Right? They struggle in the way of Allah against the system of anti-christ, against the irreligious, against PKK. Right? They defend themselves. "Raiding at full gallop in the early dawn." This again is a sign to our heroic army's activities. Right? Allah draws attention to their operations. "Leaving a trailing dust-cloud in their wake." Dust rises with the firing of cannon balls and everywhere falls out. Or they fire missiles and defend themselves. "Cleaving through the middle of the foe." They enter right in the middle of PKK and they destroy them. This again refers to our heroic army, to the Turkish army. Layer by layer; so if we continue, it would go on like this insha'Allah. For instance, "Raiding at full gallop in the early dawn." The Qur'an draws attention to the importance of moving early in the morning, beginning a lively activity early in the morning . Also "riot"; meaning moving first before waiting for them to move. Right? Not waiting for their damage. It is important to prevent destruction before it ever happens. The Qur'an draws attention to this. "Leaving a trailing dust-cloud in their wake." For example, the military vehicles go by leaving a dust cloud behind, right? This is a beauty and an honor for us. Right? This is also a reason of fear for the opposing side insha'Allah. Look, He says, "Cleaving through the middle of the foe." The Turkish army enters in the middle of them with tanks by leaving a dust-cloud behind insha'Allah. Allah says, "truly man is ungrateful to his Lord." Allah emphasizes this character in not all but most of the people. "And indeed he bears witness to that." So Allah says that man sees this in his lower self. Actually the disbelievers and the oppressors know this in their inner selves. "Truly he is fierce in his love of wealth." There are indurations due to love of wealth in the capitalist, fascist and communist systems; their hearts go hard due to love of this world. For instance, what is at the root of wild capitalism? There is love of wealth. What does Almighty Allah reveal in the verse? Allah says, "Truly he is fierce in his love of wealth." His heart, soul is hardened and he has become assaultive. "Does he not know that when the graves are emptied out, and the heart's contents are brought into the open, that Day their Lord will certainly be aware of them." Almighty Allah says, "Don't these people know that they will die?" He says, "Don't they know that their graves will be emptied out?" The Qur'an gives a reminder stating that if they had thought about death, they wouldn't do this. But, of course since this is not in their destiny, because Allah created them that way, and because they act in a conscienceless way, the situation is like this. The Qur'an draws attention to this danger insha'Allah. But if we continue, of course, layer by layer by layer; there can be at least seventy explanations as far as I see, seventy layers. But let's end it with this for now insha'Allah.
