(Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Interview dated September 17, 2010)
The only answer of his [Abraham’s] people was to say: “Kill him or burn him!” But Allah rescued him from the fire. There are certainly signs in that for people who are believers. (Surat al-‘Ankabut, 24)
The Prophet Abraham (pbuh) says, “I will break all of your idols up and I will only show a formal respect to your biggest idol. I will hang the axe around its neck and I will not touch him.” This is secret knowledge (ilm al-ladun). It does not mean that he will not break it; he only shows a temporary courtesy. “Kill him or burn him.” Here is the treatment to be shown to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) comes out of this smiling every time.
