Chapter 8:
The time for the salvation of the world is near

The time for the salvation of the world that is shaken with scourges, wars and iniquity is close at hand. We need to do the utmost of what we can and pray for it and we must show patience and perseverance by putting trust in our Lord.

Before pointing out the ways of solving these matters, we feel we must remind some Westerners who dream of a Greater Kurdistan in the Middle East and our Kurdish brothers who have been oppressed under hardship and duress for years. These reminders should definitely be taken into consideration.

A reminder to the Western world

We have a reminder for those who assume that backing the PKK would serve the schemes over the Middle East: Although you receive the support of all the advanced imperialist countries, the incidents will most likely not develop as you expect. As we discussed in details in the previous pages of the book, the region in question would serve as an opening to a communist world state. Communism will soon show its face of violence, and with the backing of all the world’s communists, that step forward which has been planned for a long time would be taken. In one way, albeit reluctantly, the capitalist world, which is in an anti-communist alliance, would be establishing a communist world state with its very own hands. America’s struggles in Korea and Vietnam, the Cold War it had waged for four decades, would have been entirely in vain.

The true nature of the PKK in Turkey, the PYD in Syria and the PJAK in Iran should be correctly understood; if their actual missions are not taken into consideration and, despite all the warnings made, a perilous scheme ends up being hatched in this key location of the Middle East, would open the door to a great disaster for the entire world.

The target of communists has always been to establish a state on a strategic, yet at the same time, extremely vulnerable territory by which they can continue spreading their ideology to the wider world. With the support of the imperialist powers, they are gradually approaching this target. The imperialist powers must not support a horrendous system that will ultimately strike them. In our time, there are such developments in the Middle East that baffle us. A communist state that emerges in line with such a plan would, in an unexpected way, gain strength and terrorize the world. In such a situation, the West would not have the luxury to say, “No matter what happens in the Middle East, let’s keep silent”, because – may God forbid- the scourge will be global in nature. It is surely not something that we would like for such violence to spread to the Middle East or to the Western world, but within the bounds of current facts, this is the probable scenario and it is vital to make a necessary warning about this peril. The objective here is not to present a gloomy picture but to open minds.

A reminder to our Kurdish brothers

Albeit on justified grounds, rage is a feeling that hinders rational and accurate thinking and, most importantly, something that displeases God. Our Kurdish brothers, who are unable to purge the rage in their hearts because of what they experienced in the past, must ponder over this fact sincerely and make a new start to eliminate the scourge of the PKK and be united as a strong nation. Together with their brothers who love them and reach out with helping hands to them, they must struggle for a unity of community and peace in which all religions and races coexist, in which bigotry and superstitions are purged. This is the kind of unity based upon real democracy and justice prescribed by the Qur'an. Together with sincere Muslims, our Kurdish brothers must engage in a cultural and ideological struggle to remove the scourge of the terrorist PKK that tries to separate Turkey and our Kurdish brothers from the Islamic world in order to receive the value Kurds deserve. This ideological struggle is vital to eliminate all sorts of dangerous opinions and illegal organizations that afflict them and not to face such scourges once again. What we need to do, together with our Kurdish brothers whom we love dearly, is to establish a Unity of Islam in which the glorious soul of Islam is experienced. This unity in which societies, nations, countries and people will coexist together must be established as soon as possible.

The Unity of Islam, but how?

The true morality of the Qur’an presents a world with no discrimination on the grounds of religion, language, race or ethnic origins and where everyone is at peace and free. Hence, the principal resolution for the Middle East should be the dissemination of the morals of Islam as described in the Qur’an through education, and the abolishment of the false religious mindset which is based on superstitions.

Both the Western societies which are currently experiencing Islamophobia  and some of our Kurdish brothers, who have been distanced from the religion for a long time, feel concerned when they hear the phrase, “the Islamic Union.” They assume that under the name of Islam, a plague of bigotry will spread all over the world, democracy will be eliminated and the members of other religions or atheists will be massacred. They also believe that women will be persecuted both physically and spiritually in every aspect of life, that world will be drowned in blood and an environment of war will persist. However, this is not the description of Islam, but the description of bigotry. The Unity of Islam that will be established as a result of practicing the real Islam will be a perfect one with amazing attributes: Wars will come to an end, women will be held in high esteem, all societies and religions will coexist in peace, democracy and freedom will dominate and, on the condition that countries keep their borders intact, all borders will be opened. This will not be a unity of only the Islamic countries, but also of China, Russia, Israel, the USA, the European countries and all the other countries of the world. Joy and peace will prevail throughout this unity; hostilities will come to an end, starvation, fear, scarcity and poverty will be eliminated. Massacres committed in the name of Islam, bigotry and radicalism can be eradicated if - and only if - this unity, which will be established under the roof of the genuine Islam, is established. This is the sole method to eradicate radicalism. Under these circumstances, in a pursuit of real democracy, the system that the USA, the other countries of the world and our precious Kurdish brothers must seek must be this one.

The objective of the PKK is to dominate the Eastern borders of Turkey and to separate Turkey from the Islamic world. In this way, they aim to hinder the establishment of the Islamic Union that will save the entire world from great scourges; consequently the PKK strives hard to hinder  peace from prevailing around the world. It is very important for both Western societies and our Kurdish brothers to be highly aware of this.

If the Western world indeed aims for world peace and the eradication of the peril of radicalism, then it must support the Unity of Islam – that we defined previously - that is based on the conception of democracy, which exists in the essence of the Qur'an. If our Kurdish brothers want to get rid of the injustice, racism and communist terror that have been ongoing for years, they also need to advocate the Unity of Islam, which is based on the justice God describes in the Qur'an. By God’s leave, this unity will certainly come into existence and peace will certainly reign the world. Yet our Almighty Lord wants us to struggle for it and to eliminate all sorts of mischief with an ideological struggle. To this end, both the leaders of the Western World and our Kurdish brothers must ally with genuine Muslims who only abide by the Qur'an and be aware that the actual way out can be secured with this alliance.

Glad tidings of the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh)

A fact to be known is this: the true Islamic understanding which will bring with it democracy, love and friendship will certainly eradicate radicalism and superstition from the world. And it will be Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) who will make this real. According to the hadith and accounts and commentaries of the Torah and the Gospels that are in line with the hadith, the era that we live in is the time of the emergence of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). The fact that almost all of the signs narrated in the hadith regarding the End Times have miraculously come true within a short frame of time is explicit evidence that we live in the End Times in which the Mahdi (pbuh) will come. You may read about all the signs that have actualized and the evidence proving that we live in the time of Hazrat Mahdi in the book: The Prophet Jesus (as) and Hazrat Mahdi (as) will Come this Century by Harun Yahya (Adnan Oktar) 135

Upon the emergence of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) all religious innovations and superstitions that began to be widely practiced throughout the world after the demise of our Prophet (pbuh) will be wiped out and the world will attain security and peace as it exists in the essence of the Qur’an.

Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is a person of peace who refrains from any kind of war and conflict. He will cause good ethics to prevail in the world by remembering God and by love, not by wars. In the time of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) wars will come to an end and people will turn to love and peace; not even a nose will bleed during his time. This fact has been related by many hadith:

People will seek refuge in the Mahdi as hone bees cluster around their sovereign. He will fill the world that was once full of cruelty, with justice. He will fill the world that was once full of cruelty, with justice. His justice will be as such that HE WILL NOT WAKE A SLEEPING PERSON or EVEN SHED ONE DROP OF BLOOD. The Earth will return to the age of happiness.136

Those who swear allegiance to him [the Mahdi] will swear allegiance between the Corner and the Maqam [near the Kaaba]. THEY WILL NOT WAKEN THE SLEEPER, AND THEY WILL NEVER SHED BLOOD. 137

The time of the emergence of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is also the time of the second coming of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh). In this period the fact that all weapons will fall silent and wars will come to an end, and that peace, love and justice will rule the world following the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) is related as follows in the hadith:

War (competents) will lay down its burden (arms and the like). 138

Enmity and hatred between people will cease… Like the cup fills with water, so will earth fill with peace... There will be religious unity. Nobody but Allah will be worshipped. War will put down its burden.139

There will be no enmity left between any people. And all hostility, fighting, and envy will definitely disappear.140

Hazrat Mahdi’s (pbuh) coming is a glad tiding not only for Muslims, Jews and Christians but also for the whole of humanity. Upon his coming the world will fill with justice and people will find the love, peace and abundance they are looking for. All the incidents of horror and violence we are now witnessing are events that are expected prior to Hazrat Mahdi’s (pbuh) coming. Even the appearance of the PKK in this period, which is the topic of this book, is foretold in the hadith:

There will be AROUND THE EUPHRATES, near Ash-Sham or a little after it, a great assembly (of armies). They will fight each other over wealth, and SEVEN OUT OF EVERY NINE WILL BE KILLED. And that will be after the Al-Hadda (powerful, hammering sound) and the Al-Wahiya (catastrophe) in the month of Ramadan, and after the split resulting in THREE BANNERS, each will seek the kingship (reign) for himself, AMONG THEM IS A MAN WHOSE NAME IS ABDULLAH. 141

As the hadith explicitly states, there is an army that battles for wealth around the river Euphrates and it causes a serious loss of lives. Just as it is stated in the hadith, the PKK have different flags in different countries. Another detail that draws attention in the hadith is that the name of PKK’s leader, Abdullah Öcalan, is precisely foretold in the hadith.

Subsequent to the emergence of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) neither the scourge of the PKK nor the other elements that have turned the world into a picture of violence and horror will remain. The time is very close at hand when the world will turn into a place of peace and prosperity. God wants our prayers, our determination and our wisdom to be able to struggle against evil. Prior to the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), God wants us to make an intellectual struggle to warn those groups that are under the influence of erroneous ideologies and superstition. Surely our Lord has the power to create this beautiful environment with a single order from Him, yet  the difficulties and intellectual struggles that are lived before the coming the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) are significant for us to be able to appreciate the beauty of the golden age in the world’s coming era, to be worthy of our Lord’s blessings and above all, to gain the consent of our Lord.
