(Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar’s live interview dated September 8, 2010)
Did We not raise your renown high? (Surt Al-Inshirah, 4)
This verse also refers to our Prophet (saas). But secondarily it also refers to his grandson, Hazrat Mahdi (as). Abjad value of this verse is 2009. 2009 was certainly the year in which the system of the Mahdi was heard about all over. We realized from statements that Hazrat Mahdi (as) will come in 570 years or not for another 1000 years, that something extraordinary is going on here, and I therefore did all I could to raise the issue of the movement of the Hazrat Mahdi (as). And in 2009 the movement of the Hazrat Mahdi (as) entered the agenda in a way that had never been seen.
