The fact is that the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will find a comfortable foundation in the system that Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will set up. But the main force and service will lie with Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). Jesus the Messiah (pbuh) will have a small community of followers. He will impose a form of Christianity based on the way of the Mahdi. An Islam within Christianity. In other words, the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will convert the Christian world by rooting it in the Qur’an and Islam. Because, “he will find the Book ready,” he says. “1400; the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will find a book inside a chest bearing the seal of our Prophet (pbuh).” That is quite explicit; our Prophet (pbuh) says that, “he will find 1400 books bearing the seal of our Prophet (pbuh) inside a chest, and he will preach with these.” That refers to the Prophet Jesus (pbuh). He will clearly do this through the way of the Mahdi. We will see the way of the Mahdi very clearly. And in my opinion, we are seeing it now, insha’Allah.
The Russian police recently raided a house and threw the students of the Nur down on the ground. There is no need for that, of course. It is ignorance that makes them unease. But in fact the students of the Nur are a blessing for Russia. Russia will be richer and more secure with them. There would be no more drugs, for one thing, or alcohol addiction, and nothing to damage the state. There would be no more extremist aggression or “radical elements,” as they call them. They are a guarantee for Russia. But they fail to see that, of course. We are striving and talking about it so they will come to understand.
I have enough love for millions, or billions of people, insha’Allah. With no division. For example,there is a fear in some people. “My love would be divided,” they say. But why should love be fragmented? Our Prophet (pbuh) loved the entire Islamic community. And his love was not divided. Everyone loved our Prophet (pbuh), and he loved the whole community. There is no division of love there! I love all my brothers, and they love me. There is no division of love.
People may have doubts regarding Jesus the Messiah (pbuh). “Is it really him?” they may say. That is not a big problem. The question is one of the global prevalence of Islam. That will happen. But the appearance of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) is of course most astounding. I do not think there will be that much amazement when it comes to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). But there will also be uncertainty about Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). We can see that from the hadiths. Our Prophet (pbuh) says, “The wise men in Kufa will better know that he is the true Mahdi.” Now what does that mean? It means there will be a general uncertainty, and that is quite normal. People may say, “Is it really him?” They may say: “People have accepted him since he is a talented and intelligent person who makes better use of circumstances, America, Russia and the freemasons supported him. People accept him since he appeared with love, since it is a system that had not been tried, since there was no other way left, since the communist alternative had been closed off, given the economic crisis.” There will probably be something like that. So there will be no absolute certainty of the kind people imagine. A very strong conviction will prevail, but there will be no 100% certainty. There will also be such a serious conviction regarding Jesus the Messiah (pbuh), but 100% certainty will only come with revelation, insha’Allah. People will harbor positive opinions and will say, “This is him, by the law of Allah.”
The global dominion of Islamic moral values is a most desirable thing. Because Islam is like a bright light, a rose garden. A climate of intense democracy, peace and love, in which art and beauty prevail, is most excellent. We have democracy in Turkey now, for instance, but when the way of the Mahdi is established there will be a huge difference. For example, America is known as the Land of the Freedom, isn’t it? But when they compare the two they will say, “We were living in hell. What kind of life was that?” They will be amazed they never realized it. “How did we end up in such troubles when we could have been living in such peace? How did we end up persecuting one another?” they will ask in amazement. Because the public pay money and the police draw their salaries. The public pay and the prosecutors draw their salaries. The public pay and the judges draw their salaries. The public pay and money goes to the military. The military oppress their own peoples in 90% of the countries of the world. It attacks their faith and religion. In 90% of places. Look, you see in Syria, unbelievable insults and humiliation. The public train and educate those people with their own money. The public pay to buy them weapons. Then they come and squeeze the trigger into their heads. And they scream and whimper from pain. The military’s boots. The public pay for them, and those same boots kick them in the face. The public pay, and the police assault the public, in much of the world. They pay their warders, then the warders come and imprison them. Prisons are built with money from the public, and then the public are stuffed into them. So the system just consumed itself. But the way of the Mahdi will eliminate this scourge. That terrible, gangrenous system in which the public grind themselves down will disappear. That is how it is in much of the world. The public pay through the nose and highly advanced prisons are built. The public pay and then go and sit in those prisons surrounded by barbed wire. And the warders beat them meantime. They pay the prison guards, as the guards’ pay comes out of the public taxes. And then the guards beat them up. The military bomb their own people, and the public pay for the bombs. The way of the dajjal [antichrist] has come to rule the world through this terrible system. But the way of the Mahdi will lift this scourge. Look, the military ruined the people in Libya, the police ruined them. We pity the people when we see their miserable state. But then we see that the former are persecuting the latter. They killed Gaddafi in a horrible way. Because that was how Gaddafi had educated the public with money taken from the public. He raised them as communists and Marxists, Darwinists and materialists, utterly ruthless. Then he tried to teach them about Islam at the last moment. “This is a sin, this is forbidden in Islam.” But it was you who taught them to be Darwinists and materialists and ruthless, wasn’t it? You cannot re-educate them in just 5-10 seconds. Can you say, “Darwinism is wrong”? Or, “Materialism is wrong”? Can you tell them all about fossils or the structure of proteins in just 5 minutes? There is no time for that. Allah struck him with his own weapon. The same with Saddam. Saddam bought vast quantities of weaponry with the public’s money and then attacked them with those weapons. The poor people there gave all they had, gave him those weapons, and then said, “Now bomb us.” And that is what he did. That is the system. But the way of the Mahdi will eliminate that blind dead-end and scourge. That is also how it is under communism. They collect all the people’s money and belongings. Then they buy weapons and build an army. Then the military go and persecute the people. They hang some, shoot some and beat others. Because that is the proletariat of the dictatorship. But the way of the Mahdi is the exact opposite. It is a system that eliminates oppression. It does away with guns and bloodshed. It does away with everything that can be used in shedding blood. It is anti-bloodshed. What sheds blood? Swords. So he eliminates them. Bullets. He eliminates those. Artillery. What good is artillery? It kills people. So Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) has it melted down. “Melt it down,” he says. And they say, “But what if these people turn to extremes?” “We have the Qur’an,” says Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). “We will put them right with the Qur’an and love, not with police and guns,” he says. Love is the greatest weapon of all. The whole world will be quiet as a lamb in the time of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). That is also in the Torah, insha’Allah. The lion will lie down with the lamb. Tigers and savage animals and scorpions and snakes will all become tame and lose their venom. That is what this means – the elimination of guns and bullets and bombs and every deadly thing. The Torah describes that at length. The Torah dates back 3000 years, and has described it all down to the finest detail, how guns will be eradicated. It actually speaks of swords, of course, and weapons used for shedding blood. The Torah does not, of course, speak of tanks and artillery. They will all be done away with, and peace will come. “In doing this, Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will do it through Allah, not through his own power.” Look, not through strength or power. It says he will do it through love. We are in that age, that time now, insha’Allah.
(In response to a viewer who inquired how Mr. Adnan Oktar looks so young and healthy)
What do I do? Well, I am careful what I eat. I am careful to eat olive oil and vegetables. I also use pure soap for washing, good soap, insha’Allah. Soap made from olive oil. That is all. What else can I do? Anything else is just a bottomless pit of money. I refuse to go down that road. And there is no logic in it. The body is nourished from the inside. You cannot intervene from the outside. You can do what you like on a building that has fallen down, but that building will remain fallen down that. You have to restore it from the inside. If the body is healthy from the inside, if you nourish it from the inside, if you give it good food and clean food, that is fine. Avoid allergenic foods. Chocolate day and night is no good. Stay away from coffee. Egg yolk is high in cholesterol and partially toxic. Too much of it disturbs the body. But foods with plenty of olive oil are good, insha’Allah.
One must try to put extremists right, rather than hating and putting them down. It is not rational to hate and exclude extremists. One must try to get them to adopt a rational, Muslim line, the line of the Qur’an, using kindness and good sense. There are some people who say, “We much crush the extremists into dust,” and that kind of thing. That is cruel and lacking in love. It is a psychopathic attitude. Muslims cannot do such things. One must save them with love. Because they are still servants of Allah. One should pity them. Other people might have ended up like them. We might have ended up like them, may Allah forbid. We must adopt a rational language and seek to liberate them with love. But extremism is an interconnected system, like a spider’s web. One extremists constantly motivates and encourages another. Extremists are like a chain. Pull one link and the next one moves as it is linked to it. Extremists do not easily abandon other extremists, and they act rather like a single clan. They act like a pack, in other words. So even if the extremist realizes something true, he is unlikely to admit it. Because bigotry is rooted in pride and arrogance. The extremist is a huge admirer of his own group or community. As the greatest of all. He therefore detests all other Muslims. He regards them as infidels and irreligious and apostates. As beneath him. He even regards it as legitimate for them to be killed and eradicated. That is why the extremist is so fanatical. One cannot respond using his own methods. One must respond with sense and affection. One may not get results, but at least one earns the merit, insha’Allah.
Insha’Allah, masha’Allah will prevent disaster from coming to that region, one. It is the key to global dominion, two. Insha’Allah; The Prophet Jesus (pbuh) used to say “insha’Allah.” And he raised the dead, He said, “Insha’Allah,” and placed his hand on the face of the sick and healed them of leprosy. “Insha’Allah,” he said, and the blind saw. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh); masha’Allah, look, the word Mahdi begins with the letter M. Insha’Allah begins with the letter I. The names of Jesus, Isa in Arabic, also begins with I. I for Jesus and M for the Mahdi. Insha’Allah and masha’Allah; these two will bring about global dominion, insha’Allah. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will say “Masha’Allah” whenever something beautiful is done. He will see beauty and say, “Masha’Allah.” He will see a manifestation of Allah and say, “Masha’Allah.” The Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will also say it, but this refers to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) insha’Allah. Insha’Allah and masha’Allah are the keys to global dominion. The vibration of the words insha’Allah and masha’Allah will bring about global dominion. Allah makes them His instrument. Disaster cannot strike.
The five pillars of Islam. There is no such issue as the five pillars of Islam. People know of five pillars. But there are not five pillars. The entire Qur’an is the pillar of Islam. “There are five pillars in Islam,” they say. So what happened to Islamic Union? Or lawful and unlawful? You have to abide by them all. The pillars of Islam is the Qur’an as a whole. There are no five pillars in Islam.
(In response to the question “Is it fitting for women to listen to the Qur’an with their heads uncovered?”)
The same old obsession: “Many women here and there listen to the Qur’an being read, listen to you reading the Qur’an with their heads uncovered. Would it not be better not to read the Qur’an?” In summary that is the issue. You are trying to turn people away from the Qur’an. In Turkey, 70% or 80% of women do not cover their heads. The great majority are uncovered at home, at least 90% of them. So fear Allah and pull yourselves together, women must listen to the Qur’an with joy. Do not try to turn people away from the Qur’an. Do not follow satan. Pull yourselves together. They use all kinds of excuses to turn women from the Qur’an. And everyone else. “You cannot understand the Qur’an, not even if you tried for 40 years, so do not read it. Put it in its cover and leave it there.” They have ruined believers by turning people away from the Qur’an. Our Prophet (pbuh) has but one complaint in the Hereafter; “O Lord, this community of mine have abandoned the Qur’an,” he says. İbrahim [addressing the owner of the question], you are also one of this gang. Fear Allah and free yourself from this scourge. Leave it alone.
“Heads uncovered”. You are also trying to get men to cover their heads. “They are also infidels if they do not wear a skull cap,” they say. Women with their heads covered or uncovered all listen easily to the Qur’an. Do not turn people away from the Qur’an. Stop it. You are hurting Islam and the Qur’an.
I am not going to tell my beloved, “Your head is uncovered, so I shall not speak to you about the Qur’an.” That breaks off communications right from the start. That is unacceptable. You must preach with the Qur’an. Our Prophet (pbuh) used to preach in the market of Ukaz with the Qur’an. Did our Prophet (pbuh) say, “Cover your heads first, then I shall read to you from the Qur’an”? Did he? Where do you get this idea from?
(In reply to a viewer who says “I am dubious about my lifestyle. A Muslim must perform his obligations. I believe in Allah but I still do various worldly things. For example…”)
Illegitimacy is no good. A Muslim has free will. A Muslim is a rational entity, not an animal. You must not do these things. You have a mother and female relatives. Can a Muslim see a wallet lying on the ground and make off with it, blaming his earthly wishes for leading him astray? No, he will return it to its owner. He cannot say that he needs it. Earthly desires have no power over a Muslim. A Muslim’s conscience must be at ease if he is to be influenced by anything. Someone whose conscience is uneasy is someone whose conscience is dead. It is wrong to be influenced by something illegitimate. A Muslim must act sensibly. This world is very temporary, insha’Allah.
(In response to the question “Why is Allah’s message, the Qur’an, in Arabic?”)
Because Arabic is the best and richest language. Arabic is the best language in the world, insha’Allah. “Why is it not in every language?” Only one Qur’an can come. A Qur’an in French or English … For the love of Allah, ask logical questions. Is it that hard to translate the Qur’an from Arabic? Allah sends one book, and you translate it into all languages. Allah gives us the strength and the means to do that.
