Turkey is the bastion of faith, a faithful nation... Allah has given this nation the job. There are a great many hadith about the Turkish nation being given this task. For example, he says that Hazrat Mahdi (as) will bring together the dispersed Turkish banners. He will unite the dispersed Turkic states, and that is very important. The Turks, he says. The hadith is very clear. We are now at the stage of the uniting of the Turkic states. This nation is a very heroic and altruistic one. Every one is a hero. They are very concerned with their honor and good name. They do not let anybody impugn their honor. This nation will be the leader of theTurkish-Islamic Union. Turkey is the leader, and everyone will see this. Istanbul will be its spiritual capital. It will be the spiritual capital of the whole Turkish-Islamic world. Its political capital is Ankara, and its spiritual capital will be Istanbul insha’Allah.
