It is surprising that Muslims in most parts of the world do not see faith as an important matter. For example, they open up Islamic schools and read the Qur’an. “How is the Qur’an read? How is the pronunciation made? What is galgale (using the voice in a high pitched manner)? What are the rules of religion?” They do not ask people whether they have faith or not. It is unbelievable. However, this is the biggest problem in the world and the main subject in the Qur’an; 80 to 90 percent of the Qur’an is about the abnormalities caused by lack of faith and Allah’s reaction to this. Like there is no such thing. However for a majority of the world, whether in Europe, America or India, atheism –not believing in Allah- is the problem. He says, “I believe” but it is seen that he does not believe. It is seen that he does not believe in practice. When he is asked, he says, “I believe.” In the verse, it is said, “If you ask them, they would say ‘we believe’”. But they do not believe in practice. For example, the man says, “I am tired of the mosque and community.” What is this? It is lack of faith.
Surah Ta Ha, 82:
I take refuge with Allah from the accursed satan. “But I am Ever-Forgiving to anyone who makes repentence and has faith and acts rightly,” first believing, meaning faith. After that “and has faith and acts rightly”. Look faith comes first. The man does not see this as important. What does “sincere” mean? Allah does not say, “Any deed.” What does “sincere” mean? Sincere. Doing good deeds and,“and then is guided.”
Surah Ta Ha, 88:
“Then he produced a calf for them, a physical form which made a lowing sound. So they said, ‘This is your god – and Moses' god as well, but he forgot.”It is revealed in the verse. What is this? It is lack of faith. The man is sick. What is with worshiping a cow? He lost his faith in Allah. And he even tells that the Prophet Moses (pbuh) is faithless. He says, “He is normally like that.” This is lack of faith; so this is the main issue. First this needs to be taken care of. This needs to be told. The main reason of faithlessness in the world is Darwinism. This is like this now. The idea of evolution existed in Pharoh’s time also. It was also there in the time of Sumerians. It existed in every period of the world; also in Ancient Greece. The idea of evolution existed in Ancient Greece as well. The same trouble was there. Those who do not believe in Allah have always told this lie throughout history. Therefore there is no point in avoiding this. This is a clear fact.
Surah Ta Ha, 87:
“They said, ‘We did not break our promise to you of our own volition. But we were weighed down with the heavy loads of the people’s jewelry and we threw them in, for that is what the Samaritan did.’”Look how a single man can easily turn them to irreligiousness. A single person, For example, there is a crowd of three hundred thousand, four hundred thousand people. A single man… there is a structure like that in human soul. Fifty fifty; majority is like that. People have a tendency between faith and faithlessness fifty fifty. People are inclined to believing and not believing in Allah. The man turns fifty one percent of people into the irreligious. The Prophet Moses (pbuh) comes. He uses his influence and turns fifty one percent into the opposite. This time the community becomes religious. They are on the side of religion.
Look, a single person can direct them. They say, “There is no need for Hazrat Mahdi (as). Muslims do not need a leader.” Look, a single leader can make the whole community irreligious in disbelief. For example, a single man called Samiri can make half a million people irreligious in that time. He can persuade them in a single moment. This shows the importance of the leader. For example, Abdullah Ocalan is the leader of the terror organization of PKK. He can run a whole organization single-handedly. He can even run them from prison. For example, Lenin was but a single person, but he pushed the communist movement. There is no society without a leader. Disbelief always has a leader. A single leader can be enough. There is a single leader of Muslims also and he can change the whole situation completely. The reason that Muslims have been suffering for almost one hundred years is that they do not have a leader. Would Muslims be in this situation, had there been a leader? Because when there is no leader, 1.5 billion ideas form if there are 1.5 billion people. 1.5 billion thoughts clash with one another. But when there is a leader, the clash of 1.5 billion people stops. The whole community behaves according to a single mind. For example, Stalin comes out. It is like that in disbelief. It is the exact opposite. A single person turned Russia into a murderous criminal organization. For example, Hitler comes out and he turns Germany into a veritable slaughterhouse all by itself. For example, Mussolini came out and turned Italy into a sadistic community spilling blood all single-handedly. They destroyed Islamic countries. A single person, Among Muslims for instance, Omar Muhtar came forward in Libya. He started a movement. Another Sunni one came out and started another movement. Such leaders come out here and there directing the community. Society becomes sick without a leader. They cannot do without a leader. Muslims also need to have a leader. This is an obligation according to the Qur’an. When there is an Islamic Union, Muslims will already have a leader. The name of this leader is Hazrat Mahdi (as). There is nothing not to understand here, insha’Allah.
Our brothers, those who love us, should proclaim these portents of the Day of Judgment everywhere. They should speak of them constantly. We are the only community who talks about this. We are the only community who discusses these portents of the Day of Judgment. And those who love us also talk about them, masha’Allah. But now there is a great excitement and panic in the world, but they are trying not to implicate this. There are people everywhere who know that Hazrat Mahdi (as) emerged. They know this all around Europe. They know this in Israel also and everywhere. They pretend not to understand. It is no problem. They know that portents emerged, and that the Day of Judgment is close. This is the reason that these articles are written all the time. So such panic is not normal. What are we going to do? We will deliberately discuss the portents of Hazrat Mahdi (as)’s emergence.
(The statements of several Ahl al-Sunnah scholars that the hadiths about Hazrat Mahdi (as) and the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) are correct by rumor.)
Imam Azam Numan Bin Sabid Abu Hanifa, the founder of the Hanafi Islamic school, says in his work called “Fikh-i Akbar” that the coming of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and his cooperation with Hazrat Mahdi (as) as well as other portents of the Day of Judgment are “facts waiting to be realized.” What does Hayrettin Karaman say? He says, “No.” Now are we going to act according to the Islamic school of Hanafi, or the Islamic school of Hayrettin Karaman? We will of course act according to Ahl al-Sunna. Hayrettin Hodja may have decided according to Islamic school of which he belongs. We have respect. But we know that the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (as) and the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) is correct according to the Islamic schools of Hanafi, Hanbali, Maliqi and Shafi. And everyone knows that the coming of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) is correct by rumor. The hadiths about Hazrat Mahdi (as) and the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) are correct by rumor.
Ibn Hajar is one of the greatest scholars of Ahl al-Sunnah. In Fathu’l Bari, he says “Hadiths about Hazrat Mahdi (as) being from this community and the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) praying behind him are correct by rumor.” Who are we going to believe? Hayrettin Hodja or Ibn Hajar?
Sevkani is also one of the greatest scholars of Ahl al-Sunnah. He says, “The number of hadiths saying that the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will return to earth reached 29” and narrated these, not one, not two, not ten, “at the end the hadiths we narrated became correct by rumor. We arrive the conclusion that hadiths about the awaited Hazrat Mahdi (as), the dajjal and the return of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) are correct.” Where does he say this? In Sunan Ibn Maja. In the original hadith book, volume 10 and page 338. According to what does Hayrettin Hodja say this? It is not certain. Look, they are giving references.
Berzenci says in the Portents of the Day of Judgment, and he is one of the greatest mujaddids. “Hadiths about the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (as) are correct by rumor.”
Imam Rabbani, Letters by Rabbani, 2nd volume, p.250, it says:“According to them, Hazrat Mahdi (as) passed away. However, the original hadiths about this subject are well-known.” Look, he says, “Hadiths about Hazrat Mahdi (as) are well-known. Eventhey are correct by rumor and contradicts the words of the community.” Imam Rabbani says. Are we to believe Imam Rabbani or Hayrettin Karaca? We of course believe Imam Rabbani.
Hundreds of scholars of Ahl al-Sunnah say that hadiths about Hazrat Mahdi (as) are “correct by rumor.” They are original and correct in Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmidhi, Ibn Made, Sunan Nasih and Sunan Dawud. So how does it happen? New scholars say, “We know the best.” We say, “You know according to what?” It is not certain. We say, “Give a reference.” There is no reference. They say, “It is like this according to me.” Do you get some inspiration? You say according to what? Show us a reference. There is no reference.
