Surat al-A’raf, 150-157



Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's interview on A9 TV dated 27 March 2012

Verse 150

“When Moses returned to his people in anger and great sorrow, he said, ‘What an evil thing you did in my absence after I left! Did you want to hasten your Lord’s command’?”

In anger and great sorrow. He was angered because of his Islamic zeal. Prophets cannot grieve, of course. This was an error of the prophet. But one can be angered. What happens when Muslims have no leader? Corruption. Can a collective identity save them? Look, the collective identity abandons them there. So a collective identity is not enough.“He threw down the Tablets and seized hold of his brother’s head, dragging him towards him. Aaron said, ‘Son of my mother, The people oppressed me and almost killed me. Do not give my enemies cause to gloat over me. Do not include me with the wrongdoing people’,” says Aaron (pbuh). The fanatics of the time went crazy. There have always been bigots. Bigots even attack prophets. “Do not give my enemies cause to gloat over me. Do not include me with the wrongdoing people.” He approaches the Prophet Moses (pbuh) from his weak side, so he will let him go because he is so furious he refuses to let go off his head and beard. He has one hand on his hair and one on his beard, but the Prophet Moses (pbuh) calms down when he says that.

Verse 151

“He [Moses] said, ‘My Lord, forgive me and my brother and admit us into Your mercy. You are the Most Merciful of the merciful’.”

 The Prophet Moses (pbuh) is afraid of Allah’s wrath, of course.

Verse 152

“As for those who adopted the calf, anger from their Lord will overtake them together with abasement in the life of the world.” Darwinists today have made the monkey their own ideal, haven’t they? That is a scourge on the world. One that comes when faith is weak. “That is how we repay the purveyors of falsehood.” Darwinists and materialists should learn from this. Allah will certainly repay them.

Verse 153

“But as for those who do evil actions and then subsequently ask forgiveness and  faith, in that case your Lord is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”

It is fine to do evil and then repent. But there is no need to be paralyzed after having done evil in the past. One must surrender to Allah and repent. In that case Allah says, “But as for those who do evil actions and then subsequently ask forgiveness and believe , in that case your Lord is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”

Verse 154

“When Moses’ anger abated he picked up the Tablets and in their inscription was guidance and mercy for all of them who feared their Lord.” For those who fear Allah, the word Mahdi is a way out, as a manifestation of Allah’s name of ‘Hadi,’ isn’t it? “And mercy for all of them” (was written).

Verse 155

“Moses chose seventy men from his people for Our appointed time,” The Sanhedrin Council has now been re-established. There was no Sanhedrin Council for a long time. Not for thousands of years. According to the Torah, according to Judaic belief, the establishment of the Sanhedrin is one of the portents of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) because Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will start work with the approval of the Sanhedrin. They ask the Sanhedrin what they think, and they say they think this person is the Mahdi. This is then announced to the people. “and when the earthquake seized them he said, ‘My Lord, if You had willed, You could have destroyed them previously and me as well’.” The date of the founding of the Sanhedrin is the earthquake in 1999. They thought great events would take place in that time. In other words, by Allah’s leave, the course of history changed then, in 1999. Through that earthquake because it happened in the wake of their decision. “Would you destroy us for what the fools among us did?” There are fools now, too, among the Jews. “It was only a trial from You by which You misguided those You willed and guided those You willed.” So, he becomes the Mahdi (pbuh). Like the Mahdi. “You are our Protector so forgive us and have mercy on us. You are the Best of Forgivers.”

Verse 156

“Prescribe good for us in the world and the hereafter. We have truly turned to You.’ He said, ‘As for My punishment, I strike with it anyone I will. My mercy extends to all things’,” the mercy of Allah enfolds all things, without exception. “but I will prescribe it for those who are pious and pay alms, and those who believe in Our Signs:” I will write the commandments of Allah for believers.

Verse 157

“Those who follow the Messenger, the Unlettered Prophet, whom they find written down with them in the Torah and the Gospel,” Allah says it is written in the Torah and the Gospel, but some people say the Torah and the Gospel are not valid. But Allah says in this verse that they are. We see this in the Torah and the Gospel. All those commandments of the Gospel and the Torah that are compatible with the Qur’an are valid. Those that contradict the Qur’an are invalid. Our Prophet (saas) was illiterate. He could not read or write Arabic. The Mahdi (pbuh) will also not be able to read or write Arabic. “...commanding them to do right and forbidding them to do wrong, making good things halal for them and bad things illicit for them, relieving them of their heavy loads and the chains which were around them.” He corrects all nonsense, insha’Allah.
