Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's interview on A9 TV dated 10 May 2012
Surat al-Anfal, 62
Almighty Allah says:
“If they intend to deceive you, Allah is enough for you.” If they wish to trick you, says Allah, “It is He Who supported you with His help and with the believeres,” says Allah.
A verse that explicitly refers to the way of the Mahdi. Because it gives the date of the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), insha’Allah. Of course it is a verse addressed to our Prophet (saas), but figuratively it refers to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).
Surat al-Anfal, 63
“and unified their hearts...”says Almighty Allah of the believers. “Even if you had spent everything on the earth,” no matter how much money or fortune you have, “you could not have unified their hearts. But Allah has unified them.” He has made them brothers and made them love one another. “He is Almighty, All-Wise.”
Surat al-Anfal, 64
“O Prophet! Allah is enough for you, and for the believers who follow you,” says Almighty Allah.
This is at the same time a verse referring to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). Look, “O Mahdi! Allah is enough for you, and for the believers who follow you,” Because our Prophet (saas) is a Mahdi. Look, “Allah is enough for you, and for the believers who follow you,” It does not matter if you are few in number, Allah says. It is not important if they attack you or defame you or imprison you. It is of no importance if they set traps and defame you. “Allah is enough for you, and for the believers who follow you,” Because all strength lies in Me, He says. Who gave strength to those who uttered the slanders? Allah. They were destined to utter those slanders before they were even born.
Surat al-Anfal, 65
“O Prophet! spur on the believers to fight...” to preach, to spread Islam. “If there are twenty of you who are steadfast, they will overcome two hundred; and if there are a hundred of you, they will overcome a thousand of those who are kafir,” atheists and unbelievers, “because they are people who do not understand.”
Look how we have destroyed a great atheist mass with a very, very tiny community. We have eliminated the Darwinist mass. The verse explicitly refers to that. Look, Allah speaks of 20 people, not many. Twenty people is highly significant. The number of Hazrat Mahdi’s (pbuh) followers, a very special group of followers, does not exceed 20 in the hadiths. The verse also speaks of 20 people. It speaks of a group of 20 people among the 313. Look, “if there are a hundred of you.” Not many people, do you see? One hundred. That is a second team.
Surat al-Anfal, 71
“But if they mean to betray you,” says Allah of the hypocrites, “they have already previously betrayed Allah, so He has given you power over them. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise.”
Surat al-Anfal, 73
“Those who are unbelievers,” atheists, those who do not believe in Allah, Darwinists and materialists, “are the friends and protectors of one another.” They are one another’s friends and helpers. They protect and watch over one another everywhere. “If you do not act in this way,” if Muslims do not support and protect and watch over one another everywhere, “there will be turmoil in the land and great corruption...” says Almighty Allah. All Muslims must support one another, He says. But what do people do? They fall out with one another, don’t they? This verse describes a feature of the time of the way of the Mahdi. Look, “If you do not act in this way there will be turmoil in the land and great corruption.” The way of the antichrist has made Muslims do this. And there has been great turmoil and corruption. Muslims have been defeated and scattered. And turmoil has enfolded the whole Islamic world. It is Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and his followers who will eliminate that turmoil. It is Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and his followers who will eliminate that corruption.
Surat al-Anfal, 74
“Those who believe,” those who leave their families and join the Muslims for Allah’s sake.“and make hijra later on and accompany you in striving,” they take Muslims into their homes and protect their brothers. “and those who have given refuge and help,” they give them material assistance. “they are the true believers.” That is what real Muslims are like, says Allah. “They will have forgiveness and generous provision.”
He says He will make them rich. This is a most superior reward. Allah says they will have pleasant food and drink and be wealthy. Normally, one would expect all that spending to impoverish them, wouldn’t one? But Allah says He will make them rich. As a miracle.
