Dates Foretold by Bediuzzaman
By looking at the abjad and jifr calculations of the hadiths and verses Bediuzzaman has drawn attention to some certain dates. We can see that all those dates that Bediuzzaman had drawn attention to and explained that might happen 20 years, 30 years, even a century after the time he lived in, have been proven to be true. This is both a great blessing of Allah upon Bediuzzaman Said Nursi and a reason for the love and respect of Muslims.
Bediuzzaman refers to the publication of Darwin’s autobiography in 1887 and says that the prohibition of the treatise of light will be lifted 20 years before it happens, in 1956, and that discord will be silenced.
The Emirdag Addendum was written between the years 1948 and 1952.
With the abjad calculation, Bediuzzaman draws attention to 1887, the year Darwin’s autobiography was published and says that discord will start to be completely silenced in 1956
Nowadays while reading the twelfth page, all of a sudden the verse “The hypocrites are in the lowest level of the Fire.” (Surat an-Nisa’, 145) caught my eye. I looked at the previous verses until the verse “Who could have a better religion than someone who submits himself completely to Allah and is a good-doer, and follows the religion of Abraham, a man of pure natural belief? Allah took Abraham as an intimate friend.” (Surat An-Nisa’, 125) . I looked at the page at the back, and I saw that there are four verses that refer to the Treatise of Light and those have been explicated in the First Flash. It occurred to my heart; surely this tremendous verse specifically refers to our age that is gruesome and dark and in extreme dissension as well. I paid attention to this and I became convinced. One sign of it is this; through the abjad and jifr calculation “Inna almunafiqeena fee alddarki al-asfali mina alnnari” (The hypocrites are in the lowest level of the Fire) conveniently draws attention exactly to the dates of the four stage of the dissension.
In such a manner that:
If the gemination marks are counted and silent signs and the silent “yaa” in fee is not counted, it makes exactly the year 1362 Hijri (1943 AD) (THE YEARS THAT THE MOST VEHEMENT CLASHES OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR TOOK PLACE) pointing out to this year. If the germination mark in “mina alnnari” (fire) is calculated as one “nuun” and one “laam”, it makes 1342 Hijri (1924 AD) (THE YEARS IN WHICH THE SEPARATIONS, CLASHES AND DISTRESSES STILL CONTINUE AFTER THE FIRST WORLD WAR) and conveniently signs exactly to the date that resulted the gruesome dissensions of the First World War. If the gemination mark is taken as two “nuun” letters, and if silent the signs and ”yaa” are counted, it makes (Hijri) 1376 (1956-1957 AD), THIS CRUEL DISSENSION (this hypocritical system based on irreligiousness and oppression) WILL BE REACHING THE SILENCE DEGREE (will be silenced) and conveniently it refers to the year 1372 Hijri (1953 AD) that is the jifri calculation of the word “ila az zulumati” (with persecution) which is matched against “Light” in many verses with only four differences. If the silent ones are counted and the germination mark in “mina alnnari” (Fire) is counted as the original lam, I saw that it makes exactly 1306 Hijri (1887 AD) (THE DATE THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF DARWIN WAS PUBLISHED) and draws attention to the date of the vehement storms of disbelief and dissension. Yes, two “ra” 400; three “faa”, two “lam” 300; one “qaaf”, two “nuun” with germination marks 300; one “miim, one “siin” 100; other “miim”, one “yaa”, one “nuun” that makes 100, two “nuun” that makes 100; in total 1300. One “laam”, one “kaaf” 50, “dal” with germination mark 8 and two maddah, two hamzah 4, in total makes 1362. Compare it with the other three. (Emirdag Addendum, pp.34-35)
Bediuzzaman foretold that the prohibition of the treatise of light will be lifted in the year 1956
In his work known as the Emirdag Addendum, Bediuzzaman has stated that the abjad calculation of the 145th verse of Surat An-Nisa’ gives the year “1956”.
“THE HYPOCRITES ARE IN THE LOWEST LEVEL OF THE FIRE. YOU WILL NOT FIND ANY ONE TO HELP THEM,” (Surat an-Nisa’, 145)
THE ABJAD CALCULATION OF THE VERSE: THE YEAR 1956 (AD)
... If the gemination mark is taken as two “nuun” letters, and if silent signs and (yaa) are counted, it makes (Hijri) 1376 (1956-1957 AD), THIS CRUEL DISSENSION (this hypocritical system based on irreligiousness and oppression) WILL BE REACHING THE SILENCE DEGREE (will be silenced)... (Emirdag Addendum, Letter No. 15)
Another verse of the Qur’an giving an abjad value of the year 1956 is verse 81 of Surah Al‘Imran.
“Remember when Allah made a covenant with the prophets: “Now that We have given you a share of the Book and Wisdom, and THEN A MESSENGER COMES TO YOU CONFIRMING WHAT IS WITH YOU, you must believe in him and help him.” He asked, “Do you agree and undertake my commission on that condition?” They replied, “We agree.” He said, “Bear witness, then. I am with you as one of the witnesses.” (Surah Al ‘Imran, 81)
THE ABJAD VALUE OF THE UNDERLINED PART OF THE VERSE: THE YEAR 1956 (AD)
In the First Flash of his book The Flashes which he wrote in 1936, Bediuzzaman has once more drawn attention to the events that will take place 20 YEARS after the date he had written the said work, namely in the YEAR 1956.
It suddenly occurred to me that; The secret of these three differences is that the rank of the Treatise of Light is in the third. That means it is not revelation and it cannot be. And it is not even inspiration in general, may be it mostly is intuitions and deductions of the Qur’an that occur in the heart with the abundance and the help of the Qur’an.
It should be paid attention to that in Surah Ghafir, the first (verse) of which is “Ha mim”, the jifr value of “ Tanzilu Al-Kitabi Mina Al-Lahi Al-`Azizi Al-Alimi “ (The revelation of the Book is from Allah, the Almighty, the All-Knowing) refers to one thousand three hundred and seventy (H.1370- 1951 AD) just like some important verses. SINCE I DO NOT KNOW IF another light of the Qur’an would appear, OR IF THERE WOULD BE A CONQUEST WITH THE REMARKABLE DEVELOPMENT OF THE TREATISE OF LIGHT IN FIFTEEN TO TWENTY YEARS FROM NOW (THE FIRST FLASH WAS WRITTEN IN 1936, 20 YEARS AFTER THAT WOULD BE 1956, THE DATE THE PROHIBITION ON THE TREATISE OF LIGHT WAS LIFTED), I CANNOT OPEN THAT DOOR. (Rays, First Ray, p.615)
The follower of the treatise of light, Ahmed Feyzi Kul has also emphasized the significance of the year 1956
In his “Ma’ida al-Qur’an wa’l Khazanah al-Burhan” written in 1950, the follower of Light, Ahmed Feyzi Kul, calculated the abjad values of a number of verses. This work was adopted by Bediuzzaman Said Nursi and added to the end of his “Tılsımlar Magazine.” The verse in this work giving an abjad value of 1956 AD is verse 68 of Surah Ta Ha.
“We said, ‘Have no fear, SURELY YOU will have the upper hand’…” (Surah Ta Ha, 68)
THE ABJAD VALUE OF THE SELECTED PART IN THIS VERSE: THE YEAR 1956 AD
The abjad value of the word “SURELY YOU” in this verse is 1956 AD.
Another verse of the Qur'an
Do not corrupt the earth after it has been put right. Call on Him fearfully and eagerly. ALLAH´S MERCY IS CLOSE TO THE GOOD-DOERS. (Surat Al-A’raf, 56)
THE ABJAD VALUE OF THE SELECTED PART IN THIS VERSE: THE YEAR 1956 AD
Until 1956, it was illegal to possess, read or distribute the Treatise of Light. Around one thousand five hundred public cases were opened against the Treatise of Light. In 1956, on the other hand, with the conclusion of the case that lasted in Afyon for eight years, the great judicial struggle that had been waged against the Treatise of Light came to an end. The court concluded the Treatise of Light to be works about faith, and therefore they constituted no element of crime. In 1956, the Afyon Court made the Religious Affairs Administration Compliance Council examine each section of the Treatise of Light Collection, as a result of which it reported that the Collection was a positive and beneficial interpretation of the Qur’an. The Afyon Court, in return, acquitted the Treatise of Light and their return, and thus the publishing of the Treatise of Light was allowed.
Various great events took place in the world and in Turkey in the year 1956
January 3rd, 1956
Sudan declared its independence as a republic.
March 20th, 1956
Tunisia achieved independence from France.
March 23rd, 1956
Pakistan became the world’s first Islamic republic.
April 7th, 1956
Morocco declared independence.
February 5th, 1956
As was noted by the General Directorate of State Meteorological Affairs, THE MERIC AND TUNCA RIVERS WERE FROZEN.
February 13th, 1956
THE FIRE THAT BROKE OUT IN ANKARA SPREAD UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF INTENSE WIND FROM THE SOUTHWEST and burned the buildings of the government office, courthouse, the local branch buildings of the gendarme, post office and recruiting office and the Ziraat (Agriculture) Bank.
Flash floods occured on Seyhan River, and overflowed into the basins of the Great Menderes, Gediz and Ceyhan Rivers.
THE BEGINNING OF TEACHING OF RELIGION LESSONS IN SECONDARY SCHOOLS.
In 1936 Bediuzzaman foretells disorder that will cause the worldwide events of 1968 to take place in 30 years’ time
First Flash was written in 1936, in which Bediuzzaman foretells the incidents that will take place 32 years later.
Bediuzzaman refers to the start of 1968 events by drawing attention to the year 1967
When I was thinking of the mysterious Quranic harmony in this verse, I remembered Surah Hud “As for those who are wretched, they will be in the Fire, where they will sigh and gasp” (Surah Hud;106) especially the part: “allatheena shaqoo” (those who are wretched) and, “As for those who are glad, they will be in the Garden.” (Surah Hud, 108) “allatheena suAAidoo” (those who are glad) and the harmony in there. And I understood that the second verse and the first part completely refers to the occupation of the Treatise of Light and the students of the Treatise of Light, through jifr and in terms of meaning while the verse “As for those who are wretched, they will be in the Fire, where they will sigh and gasp” (Surah Hud, 106) , refers to the opponents and enemies of the Treatise of Light and the beginning of their movements and the stages of their activities and their end, through convenience and jfir.
Thirteen sixteen (Hijri 1316 and 1898 AD) and thirteen seventeen (1316 Hijri, 1898 AD and 1317 Hijri, 1899 AD), are referred to both in the 32nd verse of the 9th Surah (“They desire to put out the light of Allah with their mouths,..”), ‘(Yureedoona an yutfi-oo noora Allahi) as it is the start of the attack against the Qur’an (1900, THAT IS THE START OF THE 20TH CENTURY, WAS THE TIME WHEN DARWINISM AND MATERIALISM GREW STRONGER ALL AROUND THE WORLD, THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE COLLAPSED AND THE ISLAMIC WORLD BROKE APART)..
IF I COUNT BOTH OF THE GEMINATION MARKS TWICE, IT GIVES THE DATE THIRTEEN EIGHTY SEVEN (1387 Hijri, 1967 AD) (THE REAL START OF 1968 INCIDENTS WHEN ANARCHISM SPREAD ALL AROUND THE WORLD, IS 1967), AND THIS COULD BE THE YEAR OF THE CULMINATION OF A HORRIBLE MOVEMENT ‘Allah alone knows the unknown as is due’.
In 1944 He foretells the 12 March  Turkish coup
(12 March 1971 Turkish coup by memorandum)
The Second Flash was written in 1943 and 1944. Bediuzzaman foretells the incidents that will take place 27 years after that date.
Bediuzzaman says that the Surat al-Falaq refers to events that will take place in turkey in the year 1971
THE DATES HE MENTIONS IN THE SAME SECTION:
1933: ADOLF HITLER IS APPOINTED AS THE CHANCELLOR OF GERMANY.
1942: THE PERIOD THAT THE SECOND WORLD WAR WAS MOST INTENSE
1910: THE YEAR WHICH PAVED THE WAY FOR THE FIRST BALKAN WAR AND TRIPOLITANIAN WAR. IN 1911 THE BALKAN WAR, IN 1913 TRIPOLITANIAN WAR HAVE EFFECTIVELY BEGUN.
1971: THE 12 MARCH COUP
Qul aAAoothu birabbi alfalaqi (Say: ´I seek refuge with the Lord of Daybreak ,)
Min sharri ma khalaqa (from the evil of what He has created )
Wamin sharri ghasiqin itha waqaba (and from the evil of the darkness when it gathers )
Wamin sharri alnnaffathati fee alAAuqadi (and from the evil of women who blow on knots )
Wamin sharri hasidin itha hasada (And from the evil of an envier when he envies. )
All the verses of this Surah have numerous meanings. Only in respect of its allusive meaning, its repeating of the word ‘’ EVIL’’ four times in five sentences; and with a powerful relation and in four ways its pointing the finger with the same date to the four unparalleled, ghastly, stormy evils, material and immaterial, of this age, with its revolutions and clashes, and its implicitly giving the command: “withdraw from these;” is certainly guidance from the Unseen in a way befitting the Qur’an’s miraculousness.
For example, the sentence Qul aAAoothu birabbi alfalaqi (Say: I seek refuge with the Lord of Daybreak ) coincides with the date 1352 (1933 AD) or 1354 (1934 AD) (HITLER BECOMES THE GERMAN CHANCELLOR IN 1933, IN 1935 HE STARTS THE RE-ARMAMENT CAMPAIGN) according to abjad and jifr calculation, alluding to the Second World War, which was brewing, then erupted due to the prevalent ambition and greed of mankind and the after effects of the First World War, and saying in a spiritual manner to the community of Muhammed (saas):”Do not enter this war, but seek refuge with your Sustainer.” With another of its allusive meanings, as a special favor to the followers of the Treatise of Light, who are servants of the Qur’an, it hints to them that they were to be saved around the same date from Eskisehir Prison and an fearsome evil, and that the plans to eliminate them would come to nothing. It was as though it were commanding them spiritually to seek refuge [from satan] with Allah.
Hijri 1352- 1933 AD- THE DATE HITLER BECAME THE CHANCELLOR OF GERMANY
Hijri 1354- 1933 AD- THE YEAR HITLER ESTABLISHED TOTAL CONTROL OVER THE GERMAN ARMY. JUNE 30, 1934 SAW 85 PEOPLE SLAUGHTERED, THOUGH IT IS BELIEVED THAT THE TRUE DEATH TOLL MAY HAVE BEEN IN THE HUNDREDS OVER A 72-HOUR PERIOD WITH THE ORDER HITLER GAVE TO EXECUTE MANY HIGH RANKING OFFICERS (THE NIGHT OF THE LONG KNIVES, AS IT IS COMMONLY KNOWN) AND THIS WAS ALSO THE DATE THE GERMAN ARMY COMPLETELY SUBMITTED TO HIM. AT THE SAME TIME IT IS THE DATE THE FOLLOWERS OF THE TREATISE OF LIGHT WERE RELEASED FROM ESKISEHIR PRISON.
1935 AD- THE YEAR HITLER OFFICIALLY COMMENCED WITH REARMAMENT, THEREBY NULLIFYING THE VERSAILLES TREATY.
And for example, the sentence Min sharri ma khalaqa (From the evil of what He has created) makes 1361 (H. 1361-1942 AD) (1942 THE TIME THAT THE COMBAT SEEN IN THE SECOND WORLD WAR WAS AT ITS MOST INTENSE) -the doubled ra is not counted- and points the finger through both the Rumi and Hijri dates at the cruel, tyrannical destruction of this unmatched war. ‘Coinciding’ too with the followers of Light, who work with all their strength to serve the Qur’an, being delivered from an extensive plan to eliminate them and from a grievous calamity and Denizli Prison, it looks with an allusive meaning to them too. With a concealed sign it says: “Protect yourselves from the evil of creatures.”
HIJRI 1361- 1942 AD – THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST INTENSE PERIODS OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR. HITLER HAD DECIDED TO ENLARGE THE GERMAN OCCUPIED TERRITORY IN ORDER TO ACQUIRE THE CAUCASIAN, BLACK SEA AND CASPIAN OIL FIELDS. IT IS WIDELY ACKNOWLEDGED THAT BETWEEN FIVE HUNDRED TO EIGHT HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND PEOPLE, SOLDIERS AND CIVILIANS ALIKE, WERE SLAUGHTERED DURING THE BATTLE OF STALINGRAD ALONE. FURTHERMORE, THIS IS THE DATE THE FOLLOWERS OF LIGHT WERE RELEASED FROM DENIZLI PRISON.
And for example, the sentence Wamin sharri alnnaffathati fee alAAuqadi (and from the evil of women who blow on knots) if the shaddahs are not counted makes 1328 (Hijri 1328- 1910 AD) (THE DATE THE GROUND WAS PREPARED FOR THE BALKAN WAR); if the (LAM) is counted in the shaddah, it makes 1358 (Hijri 1358- 1939 AD) (THE OFFICIAL START OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR); the foreign tyrants who executed those general wars with the idea of ruining the results of the Independence Revolution that were in favor of the Qur’an, instigated a change of sultan and the Balkan and Tripolitanian Wars, the outbreak of the First World War, through the political diplomats blowing their material and spiritual evils and their sorcery and poison into everyone’s heads through the tongue of the radio, and their inculcating their covert plans into the heart of human destiny, they prepared the evils that would savagely destroy a thousand years of the progress of civilization, which corresponds exactly with the meaning of the blowers on knots.
HIJRI 1328- 1910 AD- SEPARATIST MOVEMENTS THAT PAVE THE WAY FOR THE BALKAN WAR BEGAN. THE OTTOMANS LOST VAST LANDS IN THE BALKANS AFTER THE WAR THAT ENDED IN 1913. THE BULGARIAN ARMY MARCHED FORWARD UNTIL IT REACHED CATALCA. IN 1911 THE TRIPOLITANIAN WAR STARTED AGAINST ITALY, AND TRIPOLI WAS LOST.
HIJRI 1358- 1939 AD- THE SECOND WORLD WAR OFFICIALLY STARTED. DURING THE WAR, WHICH LASTED UNTIL 1945, AT LEAST 50 TO 60 MILLION PEOPLE DIED ACCORDING TO THE OFFICIAL RECORDS. IT IS WIDELY BELIEVED THAT THE ACTUAL NUMBERS ARE SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER, PERHAPS AS MANY AS 75 MILLION, OR 2.5% OF THE TOTAL WORLD POPULATION AT THAT TIME, MAKING THE SECOND WORLD WAR THE MOST DESTRUCTIVE WAR IN HUMAN HISTORY.
AN ADDENDUM TO A POINT ABOUT THE MIRACULOUSNESS OF THIS SURAH
Just as with four of its five sentences, this surah looks with its allusive meaning to the four largest evil revolutions and storms this century; so, with its allusive meaning and according to jifr calculation, by its repeating four times the phrase “from the evil of” (min sharri)- the shaddahs is not counted- it looks to and points the finger at the century of the dissension of Genghis Khan and Hulagu Khan and the time of the fall of the ‘Abbasid dynasty, which was the most fearsome calamity experienced by the Islamic world. (He says that because the word evil has been repeated four times, so that refers to four different dissensions: 1.GENGHIS KHANS’ DEPREDATIONS, 2. HULAGU KHANS’ DEPREDATIONS, 3. THE FIRST WORLD WAR, 4. THE SECOND WORLD WAR)
Yes, without the shaddah, the evil (sharri) makes 500 (Hijri 500- 1106 AD), and from (min) is 90 (Hijri 90- 709 AD.) Numerous verses which look to the future, as well as Imam ‘Ali (as) and Ghawth al-A’zam, who gave news from the future, both our century and those times in their predictions of the future, saw both our century and that century, and made predictions in exactly the same way, With ghasiqin (darkness) making 1161 (1747 AD) and itha waqaba (when it gathers) making 810 (1407 AD), the words ghasiqin itha waqaba ( of the darkness when it gathers) look not to this time, but may be to the significant material and spiritual evils of those times. IF THEY ARE COUNTED TOGETHER, THEY MAKE 1971, AND GIVE NEWS OF SOME GHASTLY EVIL AT THAT DATE. IF THE CROPS OF THE SEEDS OF THE PRESENT ARE NOT RECTIFIED, THE BLOWS WILL CERTAINLY BE TERRIBLE.
1971- THE COUP MEMORANDUM OF MARCH 12th: TOGETHER WITH THE EVENTS OF 1968 WHICH TOOK PLACE ALL OVER THE WORLD, THE MARXIST MOVEMENTS HAVE BECOME VERY STRONG IN TURKEY, AND THERE WERE ACTS OF VIOLENCE. THEY WERE ORGANISING ACTS LIKE STUDENT RIOTS, ATTACKS ON THE POLICE, EMBASSIES, POLICE STATIONS, BANK ROBBERIES AND ABDUCTION. IN THE 1969 ELECTIONS, DEMIREL CAME TO POWER WITH 46% OF THE VOTES, HOWEVER THE COUNTRY WAS VERY TURBULENT; A GROUP OF SOLDIERS WERE PLANNING TO STAGE A COUP UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF GENERAL MADANOGLU. IN ORDER TO PREVENT THIS MILITARY COUP, GENERAL MEMDUH TAGMAC PUBLISHED THE MEMORANDUM OF MARCH 12TH. THE PARLIAMENT WAS NOT DISSOLVED, BUT POLITICAL FREEDOMS WERE LARGELY LIMITED.
Bediuzzaman draws attention to the years 1979-1980
The 24th Word was written between the years 1926 - 1934
Bediuzzaman draws attention to the years 1979-1980
Thus, unfair people who do not know this truth say: “Why then did the Companions of the Prophet with their vigilant hearts and keen sight, who had been taught all the details of the Hereafter, SUPPOSE A FACT THAT WOULD OCCUR ONE THOUSAND FOUR HUNDRED YEARS LATER TO BE CLOSE TO THEIR CENTURY, as though their ideas had deviated a thousand years from the truth?”
The Answer: Because, through the effulgence of the Prophet’s conversation, the Companions thought of the Hereafter more than anyone, and knowing the transience of the world and understanding the Divine wisdom in the hour of the Day of Judgment being vague, they assumed a position of always awaiting the world’s appointed hour and worked seriously for the Hereafter. Allah’s noble Messenger (saas) repeating, “Expect the Day of Judgment. Wait for it” was Prophetic guidance arising from this wisdom; it was not a pronouncement of Revelation concerning the specific time of its occurrence and far from the truth. The cause is one thing and the wisdom is another. Thus, these sort of sayings of the Prophet (saas) arise from the wisdom in certain things being indefinite.
HIJRI 1400: 1979-1980
According to the hadiths and the statements of the Islamic scholars, Hijri 1400 is the date Hazrat Mahdi (as) started his activities. Along with the starting of Hijri 1400’, all the portents of Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) arrival, foretold by our Prophet (saas) have been realized one after the other. Our Prophet (saas) said that those portents will follow each other just like the beads of the rosary. We are living in 1432 at the moment. During the 32 years time that passed by from 1400 to 1432, approximately 400 portents foretold by the Messenger of Allah (saas) have been realized exactly as he said. This is, just like Bediuzzaman has also stated, an evidence to state that Hazrat Mahdi (as) is on his duty right now. Some of the hundreds of portents foretold by our Prophet (saas) that have been realized exactly as he foretold are as follows;
- 1976: The stopping of the water of the Euphrates
- 1979: The occupation of Afghanistan
- 1979: Kabaa riot and the bloodshed in Kabaa
- 1979: The vessel explosion in Istanbul
- 1980-1988: The Iran-Iraq War
- 1981: Killing of the Kings of Damascus and Egypt
- 1981: 1982: Lunar and Solar Eclipses during the month of Ramadan
- 1986: Passing of Halley’s commet
- 1989: Changing of systems (the collapse of communism)
- 1990: The occupation of Azerbaijan
- 2001: Corruption of smoke and dust – the September 11 attacks on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon
- 2003: The occupation of Iraq
- 2003: An army being lost in the desert- the disappearance of the Iraqi army
- 2003: Baghdad in flames
- 2009: Comet Lulin, an unusual two-tailed comet appearing
(To see all the portents that reach 400 in numbers visit www.awaitedmahdi.com )
References from the treatise of light to the years 1981, 1991 and 2001
The Sermon of Damascus; The Sermon was given in 1909, and was published as a book in 1911
References to 1981, 1991 and 2001 in the treatise of light
Bediuzzaman, in his Sermon of Damascus which he gave in the Umayyad Mosque, made some comments about the future of the Islamic world after the year 1371.
Moreover, the veils that have eclipsed the sun of Islam, hindered its emergence and prevented it from illuminating mankind have begun to disperse. Those things that were hindering it have begun to fall back. The signs of that dawn appeared forty-five years ago. THEN THE TRUE DAWN BROKE IN SEVENTY ONE (HIJRI 1371/1951 A.D.), OR IT WILL BREAK. EVEN IF IT IS THE FALSE DAWN, IN THIRTY OR FORTY YEARS’ TIME (HIJRI 1401/HIJRI 1401- 1991 A.D.) THE TRUE DAWN WILL BREAK. (The Sermon of Damascus, p. 490)
Dawn: The dawn to break, the redness before the sun rise, the morning time
False Dawn: The first redness that starts to spread in the horizon.
True Dawn: The second lightening that starts to spread after the false dawn
1371 + 30 = 1401 = 1981
1371 + 40 = 1411 = 1991
These dates are the years that the light of Islam started to spread throughout the world again, the date that the Muslims start to create a worldwide impact with their scientific studies.
BEDIUZZAMAN CONTINUES TO TALK ABOUT THE YEARS AFTER HIJRI 1371 (1952 AD.):
For sure, maybe not now (AFTER H. 1371) but IN THIRTY TO FORTY YEARS’ TIME, in order to fully equip to perfection the three forces of science, true knowledge [acquired through arts, science and skills] and the virtues of civilization, and to overcome those nine obstacles, the desire to search for the truth, equity, and love of humanity will be dispatched to the fronts of those nine enemy squadrons. They have already started to drive them back. Allah willing, IN HALF A CENTURY they will scatter them completely. (The Damascus Sermon, p. 25)
1371 + 30 = 1401 = 1981
1371 + 40 = 1411 = 1991
IN HALF A CENTURY: 1371 + 50 = 1421 = 2001
Bediuzzaman’s references to the 28 February 1997 military memorandum [Turkey]
The 2nd Ray was written in 1943-44. Bediuzzaman foretells the incidents that will take place 53 years later
Said Nursi’s abjad calculations referring to the incidents of February 28th, 1997 military memorandum (Surat al-Baqarah, 257)
Supplement to the Addendum of the Eleventh Topic
The verse, “Let there be no compulsion (in religion); Truth stands out from error” (Surat al-Baqarah: 256) which is the complement of the Throne Verse [Ayat al Kursi], makes 1350 (Hijri 1350-1931 A.D.); “….whoever rejects evil” makes 1929 or 1928; and “….believes in Allah has grasped,” makes 946 (Hijri 946), corresponding to the name ‘Treatise of Light;’ “the most trustworthy handhold” makes 1347 (Hijri 1347- 1928 A.D.) ;”.... that never breaks, and Allah is All-Seeing, All-Knowing (Allah) is the Protector of those who have faith” if counted together makes 1012 (Hijri 1012), and if not counted together 945 (Hijri 945) (with one shaddah not being counted); “... out of the darkness into the light.” makes 1372 (Hijri 1372- 1953 AD.), without shaddahs;
“WHILE THOSE WHO DO NOT BELIEVE, THEIR PATRONS ARE (THE EVIL ONES) “ (Surat al-Baqarah; 257) makes
1417 (Hijri 1417 (1997 A.D.) "….out of the darkness into the light. ” makes 1338 (Hijri 1338- 1920 AD), (the shaddahs are not counted); “….they will be the companions of the Fire, to dwell therein forever” makes 1295 (Hijri 1295) (shaddah is counted).
It was imparted to me that with their allusive meanings, these verses ‘coincide’ exactly and twice with both the name of the Treatise of Light, and the form of its striving; and with the date the people of unbelief were attempting to extinguish the light of the World of Islam with the war of 1293 (Hijri 1293- 1877 AD.) (THE OTTOMAN RUSSIAN WAR, ONE OF THOSE WARS IN WHICH THE OTTOMANS LOST LANDS THE MOST); and with the date the terrible treaties that were signed in 1338 (Hijri 1338- 1920 AD.) taking advantage of the First World War and in order to cast the Islamic world into darkness in fact. It was imparted to my heart too that light and darkness are repeatedly contrasted in these verses, and in this immaterial struggle a Light proceeding from the Qur’an’s light would become a point of support for the people of belief. I was compelled to set this down in writing. Then I saw that the relationship of its meaning with this century was so powerful that even had there been no sign through the ‘coincidences,’ I would still have been certain that these verses were speaking with us through their allusive meanings, just as they look to all centuries. (The Rays, p. 422/423)
As is known, February 28th was important in the recent history of Turkey as it marked the beginning of an era in which there were limited freedoms, intensified pressure upon Muslims, and an increase in the number of cases of torture and unsolved murders. It is highly significant that Bediuzzaman has drawn attention to the year 1997 like this.

In the verse, “They desire to put out the light of Allah with their mouths, and Allah will not consent save to perfect His light, though the unbelievers are averse.” (Surat at-Tawba, 32) with its powerful and gentle spiritual relationship the statement, “Yureedoona an yutfi-oo noora Allahi bi-afwahihim” (They desire to put out the light of Allah with their mouths, and Allah will not consent save to perfect His light), each one of “lām” bearing the gemination mark is counted as one and “mīm” as two, for it is included in the main word, it [numerological calculation] suggests one thousand three hundred twenty four (1324 Hijri and 1906 Gregorian Calendar) (1906, THE END OF THE FIRST CONSTITUTIONAL ERA AND TYRANNY). With the intention of extinguishing the light of the Islamic State, the European tyrants hatched a tremendous plot against it, even though, by the proclamation of freedom the Turkish patriots tried to render that plan void in twenty-four” (1324). Six-seven years later, namely, at the end of the First World War, again with the same intention of a plot, [the European tyrants] imposed very severe conditions that were against [living by] the Qur’an by the Treaty of Sèvres (1920) and the Turkish patriots tried to respond and render ineffective [the Europeans’] plans of carrying out the infidel ideologies on dates “thirty four” (34) and “fifty four” (54) with full conformity [by Allah’s preordination] with the date of the proclamation of the Republic in one thousand three hundred twenty four (1324). From these stand out the retorting efforts of those, who try to preserve the Light of the Qur’an in that upheaval, and among who is particularly the author of the Treatise of the Light in “twenty four (24)” and the first pamphlets of the Treatise of Light in “thirty four (34)” and the luminous sections of the Treatise of Light and its self-sacrificing followers in “fifty four” (54) who tried to respond to it…
If “mim” bearing the shaddah mark is also considered as one like “lam”s bearing the gemination marks, then it corresponds to one- thousand-two-hundred-eighty-four (H.1284- 1866 AD) (THE CRETIAN REBELLION TAKES PLACE IN 1866, ALSO SERBIAN REBELLIONS TAKE PLACE). On that date, the European infidels intended to extinguish the Light of the Islamic State and only ten years later provoked the Russians, and by the inauspicious war of ‘93, they had laid a temporary veil over the bright Light of the Islamic World. But since the followers of Mawlana Halid dispersed that cloud of persecution instead of the followers of the Treatise of Light, in that respect this verse draws attention by referring to their leaders. IT NOW OCCURS TO MIND THAT IF EACH OF THE LETTERS “MIM” AND “LAM” BEARING THE GEMINATION MARK ARE COUNTED AS TWO, THE PEOPLE WHO WILL DISSOLVE THE OPPRESSIONS A CENTURY LATER (H.1424- 2004 AD) MAY BE THE DISCIPLES OF HAZRAT MAHDI (AS). Anyway, there are many secrets within this luminous verse.
We spoke briefly about the secret of the saying, “The drop signifies the ocean.”
References to the years 2007-2008 in the treatise of light
Bediuzzaman Said Nursi reminds us that the abjad calculation of the part of the verse which reads “.... it is the party of Allah who are victorious!” (…fa-inna hizba Allahi humu alghaliboona) would give the date Hijri 1350, yet that this is a secret indication that refers to another period in which the morality of the Qur’an would gain the upper hand. In fact, when the abjad calculation is done by adding the LETTER “FE” IN THE BEGINNING OF THE VERSE IN ARABIC INTO THE CALCULATION, THEN THE ABJAD CALCULATION WOULD GIVE 80. AND WHEN WE ADD 80 TO 1350, THAT WOULD MAKE HIJRI 1430 AND THAT REFERS TO THE “YEAR 2008” IN THE GREGORIAN CALENDAR.
THE LETTER FE=80
1350+80 = 1430 = 2004
The verse “As for those who make Allah their friend, and His Messenger and those who have faith: it is the party of Allah who are victorious!” (Surat Al-Ma’idah; 56) confirms the secret implication of this verse. As, if I count the letters of “nuun” with shaddah only once in the part of the verse “…: it is the party of Allah who are victorious!.” , it gives the year 1302 in Hijri calendar (1884 in the Gregorian calendar) with two years difference from the year that a servant, the means for the activities of the supporters of Qur’an, started reading the Qur’an. However, if I count the letter “nuun” with shaddah twice, I get the year one thousand three hundred and fifty (1350 in Hijri calendar, 1931 AD); which is important because in this year, the supporters of the -Qur’an, who gathered around the Treatise of Light and which works for Qur’an with all their might has done great services and triumphed over the deviation and disbelief and THIS IS A HIDDEN REFERENCE TO THAT YEAR, SUGGESTING THAT IN THE FUTURE, THEY WILL BE COMPLETELY VICTORIOUS AND TRIUMPHANT. (8th Flash, Profound Comprehension of Prophecy)
Bediuzzaman said that the Day of Reckoning will come in Hijri 1545 (2120 ad) (Allah knows the truth)
In eight authentic hadiths said by our Prophet (saas) and narrated by Imam As-Suyuti, who is one of the greatest hadith imams, it is noted that the life span of the world is 7000 years and 5600 years of this have passed until the time of our Prophet (saas):
H.2 —- Ibn Asaqir says: Abu Said Ahmad ibn Muhammad Baghdadi (with the full history of its transmission) narrated. He said from Anas ibn Malik (ra) that the Messenger of Allah (saas) said:
Allah will ascribe the equivalent of good deeds of the SEVEN THOUSAND YEARS OF THE AGE OF THIS WORLD to the one who meets the need of any of his brothers in the faith on the path of Allah as if he spends his days in fasting and his nights in worship.
H.3 —- Ibn Abiyy says: Abu Ishak narrated from Ibrahim ibn Abdullah Nabt (with the full history of that transmission) narrated. He said from Anas ibn Malik (ra) that the Messenger of Allah (saas) said:
THE LIFE SPAN OF THE WORLD IS SEVEN DAYS IN THE DAYS OF THE AFTERLIFE . ALMIGHTY ALLAH SAID, “A DAY IN THE SIGHT OF YOUR LORD IS EQUIVALENT TO A THOUSAND YEARS IN THE DAYS YOU COUNT”.
H.7 —- Ibn Abi ad-Dunya says that: Ali ibn Said narrated from Hamza ibn Hisham and he from Said ibn Jubair that,
THE WORLD IS ONE WEEK OF THE WEEKS OF THE HEREAFTER.
H.5 —- Ibn Abi Hatam narrates from Ibn Abbas in the Commentary that:
THE WORLD IS ONE WEEK OF THE WEEKS OF THE HEREAFTER, IT IS SEVEN THOUSAND YEARS, OF WHICH SIX THOUSAND HAVE ALREADY GONE BY.
H.6 —- There is this account reliably narrated from Ibn Abbas:
HE SAID: THE WORLD IS SEVEN DAYS. EACH DAY IS LIKE A THOUSAND YEARS. AND THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH (SAAS) WAS SENT AT THE END OF THAT.
• A dream of Ashab al-Qiram
H.4 —- At-Tabarani says in al-Kabir: Ahmad ibn Nadr al-Askari and Jaffar Ibn Muhammad al-Faryabi (with the full history of its transmission) narrated. They narrated from Daqqaq Ibn Zaid Al-Juhani. He said ; I had a dream, and told it to the Messenger of Allah (saas). He spoke the words inside him: O Messenger of Allah, I am with you on a seven-stepped pulpit, and you are on its highest degree. He (saas) said: AS FOR THE SEVEN-STEPPED PULPIT, I AM ON THE HIGHEST STEP, THE LIFE OF THE WORLD IS SEVEN THOUSAND YEARS. AND I SHALL BE IN THE LAST THOUSAND.
H.8 —- Ibn Abd al-Hamid says in the Commentary; Muhammad ibn Fadl narrates from Hammad bin Zayd, and he from Yahya ibn Atik, and he from Muhammad ibn Sirin and he from one of the People of the Book who became a Muslim that;
ALLAH CREATED THE EARTH AND SKY IN SIX DAYS. A DAY IN THE SIGHT OF YOUR LORD IS EQUIVALENT TO A THOUSAND YEARS IN THE DAYS YOU COUNT. AND THE LIFE SPAN OF THE WORLD IS SIX DAYS, AND THE DAY OF RECKONING WILL FALL ON THE SEVENTH. SIX DAYS HAVE GONE BY, AND YOU ARE IN THE SEVENTH.
• In the time of our Prophet (saas) 5600 years have passed since the Prophet Adam (as)
H.28 —- Ahmad ibn Hanbal narrated in his ‘Ilal. Ismail bin Abdul Karim said from Abdussamed and he from Vahb that:
FIVE THOUSAND SIX HUNDRED YEARS HAVE PASSED FROM THIS WORLD. (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 88)
As-Suyuti who makes statements on the basis of the blessed hadiths of our Prophet (saas) and great Islamic scholars like Ahmad ibn Hanbal stated that the life span of the Islamic community would not much exceed the first half of the Hijri 1500’s, so that it would not reach Hijri 1600:
“THE LIFE OF MY COMMUNITY WILL NOT EXCEED 1500 YEARS.” (As-Suyuti, Al-Kashf ‘an Mujawazat Hazihi al-Ummah al-Alf; As-Suyuti, Al-Hawi Lil-Fatawi, 2/248; Tafsir Ruh al-Bayan. Burusawi 4/262; Ahmad ibn Hanbal, Kitab al-`Ilal, p. 89)
Based on the blessed hadiths of our Prophet (saas) and the statements of great Islamic scholars, Bediuzzaman, from the adjad calculations of Surat Al-Asr and Surat Al-Fatiha, stated that the Day of Reckoning will break on Hijri 1545 (Gregorian Calendar 2120) by saying “Allah knows the truth”.
An important hadith about the end of the times
“LA TEZALU TAIFETUN MIN UMMETI ZAHIRINE ALA’L-HAKKI HATTA YE’TIYALLAHU BI EMRIHI.” “One group from my community will be victorious on the path of truth until the order of Allah [until the Judgement Day].”
In the second hour of the tenth day of the Holy Ramadan, this hadith suddenly came to my mind. Maybe, it is because at the time I was thinking how long the followers of Light would continue. “LA TEZALU TAIFETUN MİN UMMETI.” “A group from my community will not disappear but continue.” (count the shaddah but not the tanwin). This part has an abjad value ofone thousand five hundred and forty two (1542- 2117 AD) , implying the end of the continuance. “Allah alone, knows the unknown.” “ZÂHİRİNE ALE’L-HAK.” “...will be victorious on the path of truth.” (count the shaddah) when I include this, the abjad value comes to one thousand five hundred six (1506- 2082 AD) and, it means that until that date they will be visible and apparent and maybe victorious but after that date, they will continue to perform their tasks secretly and defeated. I believe this is almost a certain implication. Wa’l-ilm al-ind’Allah; “Allah alone, has the true knowledge.”
“HATTA YE’TIYALLAHU BI EMRIHI” “Until Allah’s order comes (until the judgment day)” (count the shaddah) when I include this, the abjad value comes to one thousand five hundred and forty five, and implies that Judgment day will break loose on the unbelievers (1545- 2120 AD). La ya’lam-al-gayb al-ill’Allah. (Allah alone knows the unknown.)
It should be noticed, and it is surprising, that although the three sections in agreement give the date one thousand five hundred, it in a completely meaningful and wise manner refers to the dates from one thousand five hundred and six (1506 Hijri, 2082 AD) to forty two (1542- 2117 AD) and to forty five (1545- 2120 AD) coincides one by one to the times of the three great changes. However, since these implications are merely some convenience, they cannot be considered evidence and they are not strong, but I believed it to be true since I got the warning suddenly. No one can know the exact date for Judgment Day, but such implications can build a sort of opinion, a strong possibility. In Surat al-Fatiha, the section “ALLATHEENA ANAAAMTA AAALAYHIM “ (of those You have blessed), which describes the biggest group of the righteous people “ALSSIRATA ALMUSTAQEEMA” (the straight path), without shaddah, gives the date one thousand five hundred and six or seven, and therefore completely coincides with the abjad value of “ZAHIRINE ALEL HAKKI” (will be on the right way) and also with the meaning, and if I count the shaddah, (the part mentioned in the hadith) “LA TEZALU TAIFETUN MIN UMMETI” (a group from the community) part confirms the implication of this hadiths with three meaningful difference in full compliance and meaningful agreement, and this makes it a hidden reference. In many verses of the Qur’an, it has been warned in my heart numerous times that the phrase “ALSSIRATA ALMUSTAQEEMA“ (the Straight Path) implies the Treatise of Light in meaning and in jifr with an implication close to a secret meaning; the group of the followers of Light will be that great group in the end of the End Times referring to a favorite group. “Allah alone, has the true knowledge.” “Allah alone, knows the unknown.”
A footnote for Surat al-‘Asr’s wit that is known as mountain fruit
“By the Late Afternoon, truly man is in loss –except for those who have faith and do right actions and urge each other to the truth and urge each other to steadfastness.”
2. Inna al-insana lafee khusrin
3. Illa allatheena amanoo waAAamiloo alssalihati watawasaw bialhaqqi watawasaw bialssabri.
The “te” and the “ta”s preceding it in the word “ALSSALIHATI” [in the third verse of Surat al-‘Asr], can be counted as “haa” in the numerological calculation, for it principally hits the mark “waav”. At this point “illa” is together (1358 Hijr- 1939 AD); this indicates our time. And because it is not pronounced as “he”, the “te” can remain. In this respect, if the gemination marks are not included, and if “illa” is not together; it indicates that a great community, with faith and good deeds, will continue to struggle against great damages inasmuch as two hundred years time. At the beginning of Surat al-Fatiha, “SIRATA ALLATHEENA ANAAAMTA AAALAYHIM”, “the Path of those You have blessed” indicates one thousand five hundred forty seven (1547-2122 AD) or one thousand five hundred seventy seven (1577- 2150 AD); also “LA TEZALU TAIFETUN MIN UMMETI ZAHIRINE ALE’L-HAKKI HATTA YE’TIYALLAHU BI EMRIHI.”
The first sentence (La tezalu taifetun min ummeti- a group from my community) refers to the last times of a group of mujahhids of the End Times (Hijri 1500- 2076 AD), the second sentence (Zahirine ala’l-hak- galibane- will proceed on the truth) with its numerological calculation of one thousand five hundred six (Hijri 1506-2082 AD) refers to the date of the victorious struggle and the third sentence (Hatta ye’tiyallahu bi emrihi- Until the order of Allah comes) one thousand five hundred fourty five (Hijri 1545- 2120 AD), with very little difference, refers to the unseen portents of both the Surat al-Fatiha and the second sentence of the Surat al-‘Asr and accords with them.
That means, each one of the three sentences of this hadith refers to the date of one thousand five hundred and how long the struggle will last; exactly “ALLATHEENA AMANOO WAAAAMILOO ALSSALIHATI” “except for those who have faith and do right actions” (Surat al-‘Asr, 3) – if the gemination mark is not included– with this one thousand six hundred (1561- 2134 AD), both “WATAWASAW BIALHAQQI WATAWASAW BIALSSABRI” (and urge each other to the truth and urge each other to steadfastness) (Surat al-Asr, 3) – the gemination mark is included but “bialssabri” (steadfastness) is also lam- one thousand five hundred sixty (1560-2133 AD) is included, indicating how long the struggle of that group who will accomplish that tremendous work will last by means of signs and numerological calculation. By examining the date indicated by the Surat al-Fatiha and the hadith by their numerological value, they come across with a different degree and also with their meanings, fully complying, they reveal a wise section from the unseen.
