The Islamic world extends as far as Morocco and Mauritania, on the Atlantic coast of Africa in the West. In the East, it stretches as far as Indonesia on the shores of the Pacific. A great many of the 1.5 billion Muslims from different nations living in this vast expanse of territory have over the last 200 years been confronted by various assaults, persecution, terror and even slaughter, solely for being Muslims, because many Muslims have been forced to live under the rule of administrations that, whether or not they refer to themselves as Muslim, in fact live far removed from Islamic moral values as a result of Darwinist/ Materialist education. But Allah has created all these events and difficulties in the Islamic world, that may appear to be negative, in order for Islam to prevail across the world.
As revealed in the verse, “Allah loves those who fight in His Way in ranks like well-built walls,” (Surat as-Saff, 4), Allah regards Muslims as a single nation or community. Under this command in the Qur’an, all Muslims have a duty to form an alliance when any harm befalls a Muslim anywhere in the world. This obligation and judgment is a verse of the Qur’an. The verse also notes the importance of Muslims being united and of Islamic Union. When Muslims bind together to establish an alliance to prevent the damage done by Darwinism and Materialism, then by Allah’s leave corruption will disappear. Allah also reveals in a verse how there will be terrible corruption if Muslims are not united:
“Those who are disbelievers are the friends and protectors of one another. If you do not act in this way there will be turmoil in the land and great corruption.” (Surat al-Anfal, 73)
It must not be forgotten that the verses in which Allah commands Muslims to be united are clearly as obligatory as those commanding “prayer or fasting.” Allah does not say in these verses (surely Allah is beyond that) “some of you pray, while others do not” or “some of you fast, while others do not.” These verses apply to all Muslims. The commandment to “be united” also applies to all Muslims. In addition, Allah’s commandment about union does not just refer to oppression and persecution visited on Muslims. It is revealed that Muslims also have a responsibility to protect Christians and Jews, and even pagans, living in their lands:
“If any of the idolators ask you for protection, give them protection until they have heard the words of Allah. Then convey them to a place where they are safe. That is because they are a people who do not know.” (Surat at-Tawba, 6)
Some people and Islamic countries ignore this commandment of Allah’s. Yet Allah always approves of Muslims coming together and acting as one, as in the Friday and other prayers, evening iftar meals at Ramadan and religious holidays. Small amounts of financial aid collected for the poor by a very small number of Muslims, or a few people fleeing oppression in their own countries being accepted as refugees, does not fundamentally resolve the problems. Approaching problems in such a way is superficial and weak. But once we have Turkish-Islamic Union, all problems will be completely resolved. Allah explicitly refers to the need for problems to be resolved comprehensively in this verse:
“Fight them until there is no more disorder and the true religion is Allah’s alone. If they stop, Allah sees what they do,”(Surat al-Anfal, 39)
|It is a great honor for Muslims to engage in an intellectual struggle in unity. Our Prophet(pbuh) foretold that it is Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) who will initiate and conclude this honorable struggle in the End Times. However, Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will bring the reign of Islam about without bloodshed. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will wage this campaign through scientific means, love and reason. Responding to bloodshed with reason, love, science and art will paralyze and neutralize perverse ideas such as Darwinism, Marxism and communism that represent the corruption of the dajjal. The climate of love, peace and tranquility that Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will bring about will, insha’Allah, be instrumental in Islam coming to reign across the world.|
The Difficulties Muslims Will Experience in the End Times Will Encourage Islamic Zeal and, Insha’Allah, Be Instrumental in the Reign of Islam
Allah does not want people to be oppressed. He always wants the best for His servants. Attacks on Muslims and the way they suffer oppression, violence and persecution are specially created with a particular wisdom because such events are instrumental in encouraging Muslims’ Islamic zeal. If Allah did not create such events, people would fall into a state of apathy because, as part of the test, Allah has created human nature to be predisposed to sloth, apathy, selfishness and parsimony. But when Muslims are martyred, and in particular when violence is inflicted on women, children and the elderly, Muslims’ Islamic zeal grows. The reason for this growth in Islamic zeal is that Allah creates protective feelings in the human soul. Because of this feeling, seeing advantage being taken of the more naive or polite, or physically weak, or the martyring or harming of people unable to defend themselves infuriates people of good conscience. And this strengthens the desire to be united in the face of injustice.
Allah reveals the effect the oppression visited on the weak should have on Muslims thus:
“What reason could you have for not fighting in the Way of Allah – for those men, women and children who are oppressed and say, ‘Our Lord, take us out of this city whose inhabitants are wrongdoers! Give us a protector from You! Give us a helper from You!’?” (Surat an-Nisa, 75)
Allah creates all this persecution and cruelty and torture deliberately, in order to test His servants. Of course, Allah really has no need of such tests because it is Allah Who creates what His servants do and will do. Allah has created an infinitely long space of time within a single moment and has concluded all things within that moment. He produces these difficulties so that His servants can delightedly say in paradise;“I strove on the path of Allah. I underwent difficulties and suffered. I made all kinds of sacrifice for Allah and exhibited patience and generosity.” He first creates difficulties and persecution in the Islamic world and then produces Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). He then brings about the reign of Islam and gives the impression to people that they were instrumental in all these things. And that produces a huge fervor in people.
Allah thus makes Himself loved and allows people to take greater pleasure from paradise.
We must not forget that Allah specially creates events of anarchy, terror and violence and wicked dictators in order to bring about the reign of Islam.
The Importance of the Struggle against Perverse Ideologies
The Islamic world had been targeted by foreign powers ever since the early 19th Century. Over the last 200 years, the Muslims of the world have been occupied by these powers, colonized, persecuted and oppressed. The puppet regimes installed by these powers in some Muslim countries have been, and still are, hugely oppressive. In addition, external powers have imposed various ideologies that are foreign to the Islamic world (extreme nationalism, fascism or communism), and have used some people they have incited through these ideologies against Muslim societies in general. The existence of so many Muslims who are being persecuted by irreligious systems all over the world is a fact that reminds us of the importance of this intellectual struggle. It must not be forgotten that every intellectual victory over irreligion (and philosophies, ideologies and so-called scientific philosophies such as Darwinism based on irreligion) is at the same time a moral victory that means help for Muslims who are being wronged all over the world.
The Greatest Difficulties Facing the Islamic World Are Ideologies Involving Colonialism and Hostility toward Islam
The Darwinism that is oppressing the Islamic world represents the supposedly scientific basis for colonialism, violence, persecution and tyranny. By denying Creation, Darwinism encourages the idea that life and the universe are merely the work of blind chance. The denial of the existence of Allah prepares the ground for the disappearance of fear of and belief in Him. Someone who holds such an opinion, even though it has no scientific foundation, will believe that all mankind is in a constant struggle for survival and that the strong invariably crush the weak. Indeed, in his book “The Descent of Man“ Darwin maintained, according to his mindset, that the European White man was the most advanced race and depicted Asian and African peoples as effectively on a par with primates. Moreover, he described this as a "law of nature."
As these facts show, it is this perverse ideology, not any nation or civilization (Western civilization, for instance), that makes leaders of the civilizations and nations in question or in the Islamic world bloodthirsty despots hostile to Islam. This ideology has come to prevail across most of the world, and has brought savagery and tyranny wherever it reigns. The forces that invade, fragment, enslave and slaughter the Islamic world are actually the communism, fascism and savage capitalism born of that perverse ideology.
Therefore, it is extremely important that the struggle to be waged against the irreligion based on Darwin’s ideas be an intellectual one because irreligion is not only a force that leads people to hell by eliminating their faith. At the same time, it also seeks to make the world a place of war and disorder. And Muslims are its main target within that climate of war and disorder.
Almighty Allah creates these things in order for Muslims to strive against corruption. In this way, He encourages them to perform great services for the faith and also to wage a major intellectual and scholarly “cultural campaign” against corruption. He has created a benefit by which they can attain paradise, and also make this world a place resembling paradise.
Mr. Adnan Oktar describes how the persecution of Muslims will give birth to enormous Islamic zeal
Adnan Oktar:They attack Muslims. That is the only way my brothers can wake up. When they attack and blaspheme and insult and beat Muslims and burn their homes, the result is a huge Islamic fervor. Otherwise there will be no fervor. What does Bediüzzaman say? “There will be Islamic zeal. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will assume their leadership and encourage the road to truth.” Otherwise you will just sleep at home. You will just eat your rice and go to sleep as slumber comes upon you. But the more they attack spiritual values, Allah and the faith, the more Muslims’ homes are burned and the more Muslims are martyred, what will happen? Islamic zeal will take off. That is how Allah has created it. Indeed, Almighty Allah says in the Qur’an: “What reason could you have for not fighting in the Way of Allah – for those men, women and children who are oppressed and say, ‘Our Lord, take us out of this city whose inhabitants are wrongdoers! Give us a protector from You! Give us a helper from You!’? See how Allah encourages Islamic zeal? Women and children. Allah approaches us at our weakest spot. Because when an adult is harmed, we are moderately affected, but people become enraged when anything befalls children, don’t they? That has happened many times. For example, may Allah forbid, they kill a child. People literally lose their senses. But the other way, they just regard it as a normal part of life. That is a very ugly thing. For example, our nation is very sensitive when it comes to women. It creates a huge impact when a woman is mistreated because there is this protective feeling in our souls, and since women are more innocent and kinder and physically weaker, we find such mistreatment difficult to deal with. It infuriates people when someone who cannot defend themselves is martyred or hurt. That is why Allah specifically refers to these. And old people; it infuriates people if an old person is made to suffer, because they cannot defend themselves. Allah says, “What reason could you have for not fighting in the Way of Allah?”(Surat an-Nisa’, 75) (31 January 2011, AdıyamanAsu TV)
Mr. Adnan Oktar Describes How Allah Creates All Events with Wisdom:
ADNAN OKTAR: Allah has no need to test us. Because it is He Who creates us. Time is an infinitely brief moment. I mean, an infinitely short moment is what we call time. Allah has created all time within an infinitely brief moment. He has finished and completed everything. Look, Allah says in one verse, “But you will not unless Allah wills” (Surat al-Insan, 30). “No misfortune occurs except by Allah’s permission,” (Surat at-Taghabun,11) Allah says. In other words, when a calamity is to happen, it first seeks Allah’s permission and then comes about. What does that mean? “I create all things,” says Allah. The essence of the matter is that Allah shows us what we are. He causes us to love ourselves. We see our own nature and character. Insha’Allah, when we go to paradise it will be all the more meaningful for us. “I struggled on Allah’s path, I suffered difficulties, I suffered, I made all kinds of sacrifice for Allah, I was patient and was generous,” one will say. But in fact Allah does all these things, and the person just delights in them in the hereafter. These things are created so we can delight in them in the hereafter, in paradise. For example, Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) appears. Allah first brings down Islam, and the Ottoman Empire. Then he produces Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and makes Islam reign in the world. Allah gives human beings a great excitement, as if they had done things themselves. But Allah does the creating. Now in paradise, too, Allah says, “This is Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).”“This is Hasan, this is Huseyin and this is Hazrat Ali (pbuh).” A reason for love emerges. A cause of excitement. And then Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) becomes meaningful. The Prophet Jesus (pbuh) becomes meaningful. For example, the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) is taken into the sky. Now that is very exciting, isn’t it? It is a delight, a beauty and color in the world. Allah does it to create beauty and color. Otherwise, He knows just what we will do. Anarchy and terror are all created by Allah. Everything is specially created by Allah, so Islam will reign in the world. (A9 TV,10 October 2011)
Mankind has a pre-ordained destiny
As revealed in the verse, “... Allah’s command is a pre-ordained decree” (Surat al-Ahzab, 38), all events in the world take place according to the destiny appointed by Almighty Allah. All the wars in the past, all the peace treaties, disasters, ideologies, political and economic changes, the discoveries made, all the people who have played a role in these and innumerable other details are all under the control of Almighty Allah and part of His wise creation. We must therefore evaluate all recent developments in the world as a whole in that light. Our Almighty Lord creates all events taking place in the End Times on the basis of the coming of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). Recent developments in Turkey and internationally have to be seen as portents of the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) as foretold in the End Times. Whether or not people are aware of this, these events are by Allah’s leave bringing the world closer to Islamic Union and the way of the Mahdi. By Allah’s leave, the time when these glad tidings will take place is close at hand. Believers are awaiting these days, one of the most special and glorious times since the revelation of Islam, with great fervor and excitement. By Allah’s leave, all the signs will be made reality in this time:
