ADNAN OKTAR: I seek refuge in Allah from the accursed satan. In the Qur’an, Allah says; “You who are enveloped in your cloak! Arise and warn.” The enveloped Mahdi will appear, insha'Allah. While this envelope is opening, there is torment, there is pain. When a woman gives birth to a baby, she also feels pain but after that the baby is born. There is a birth pain. The ones who are patient, are doing a very good deed.

ADNAN OKTAR: Look how the Surah Al-Muddaththir, the 74th surah, begins; “You who are enveloped in your cloak! Arise and warn.” “You who are hidden”. There is a sign of Hazrat Mahdi here at the same time. “Arise and warn”. Warn the people now, insha'Allah.

ADNAN OKTAR: In the Qur’an, they say: “Oh Lord send us a Sultan, send us a leader, a commander”. This is the prayer of the Muslims, it is a verse. It is very clear in the verse that, waiting for Hazrat Mahdi, a commander, a leader is a blessing and a beauty, and also a form of worship for Muslims. Always prophets have been waited for. Our Prophet(pbuh) said; “Hear the glad tidings of Hazrat Mahdi(saas)”. Our Prophet tell us the signs of Hazrat Mahdi. He tells us to look for these signs and he tells us to be watchful for Hazrat Mahdi when we see these signs. For Jesus, Son of Mary, Allah says: “He is a sign of the Hour”. And what do they say; ”...weakness, infirmity and waiting the favor and the labor from the other.” In the Qur’anic verse, Allah says: “Wait”. He commands us to wait for a leader and He says that this is a beauty. For example, in the story of Goliath and Saul, Allah sends Saul as the imam, as the leader. It is an obligation for Muslims to wait for a leader. It is an obligation for them to ask for a leader. Muslims cannot be without a head, without a leader.
