… then [He] formed him and breathed His Spirit into him and gave you hearing, sight and hearts. What little thanks you show! (Surat as-Sajda, 9)

Except for those who repent, put things right, and make things clear. I turn toward them. I am the Ever-Returning , the Most Merciful. ( Surat al-Baqara, 160)
Say: “My servants, you who have transgressed against yourselves, do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Truly Allah forgives all wrong actions. He is the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful.” ( Surat az-Zumar, 53)
Allah only accepts the repentance of those who do evil in ignorance and then quickly repent after doing it. Allah turns toward such people. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise. There is no repentance for people who persist in doing evil until death comes to them and who then say: “Now I repent,” nor for people who die as unbelievers. We have prepared for them a painful punishment. ( Surat an-Nisa', 17-18)
We brought the tribe of Israel across the sea, and Pharaoh and his troops pursued them out of tyranny and enmity. Then, when he was on the point of drowning, he said: “I believe that there is no deity but Him in whom the tribe of Israel believe. I am one of the Muslims.” What, now! When previously you rebelled and were one of the corrupters? (Surah Yunus, 90-91)
And also toward the three who were left behind, so that when the land became narrow for them, for all its great breadth, and their own selves became constricted for them and they realized that there was no refuge from Allah except in Him, He turned to them so that they might turn to Him. Allah is the Ever-Returning, the Most Merciful. ( Surat at-Tawba, 118)
Were it not for Allah's favor to you and His mercy … and that Allah is Ever-Returning, All-Wise. ( Surat an-Nur, 10)
What He Said
Albaghdadi TV, April 30-2008
Adnan Oktar: Within the secular system, I am for the propagation of the religion, of Islam; people living by it. I think this will mean everyone being at peace, because there are also atheists in society AND JEWS AND CHRISTIANS. AND THEY ALL HAVE RIGHTS. THEY ARE ALSO FIRST-CLASS CITIZENS, and there are even various sects. There are Alawites, for instance, and Jaferites, and they are all our brothers. We feel a profound love for them all and cannot accept their being wronged in any way. I regard them all, Alawite and Jaferite, as one, I mean all as brothers. Only People of the Book. The people of the Book as set out in the Qur’an. But they are also our brothers in the Qur’an, our friends. They, too, have rights. We must live alongside them in bonds of love and friendship.

Reporter: In the Golden Age, will there be the kind of environment in which, as in the ideal Islamic model under the Ottoman Empire five hundred years ago, everyone, believers or non-believers, Christians and the People of the Book, can all live together in peace?
Adnan Oktar: Yes, yes. Particularly in that form. THE PEOPLE OF THE BOOK, Christians, Armenians, the Orthodox, Catholics, Protestants, Jews, Orthodox Jews, atheists, Freemasons and Buddhists will all LIVE IN PEACE, SAFETY AND COMPLETE SECURITY, in economic well-being and as friends and brothers.

Erdoğan addressed Jewish citizens, saying: “There has never been any anti-Semitism at any time in this country’s history... I spoke to the honorary president of the community on the phone and told him, ‘Call me the moment you have a problem and we can talk at once.” THEIR [THE JEWISH CITIZENS’] SECURITY AND BELIEFS ARE UNDER OUR GUARANTEE. EVERY MEMBER OF THIS COUNTRY IS A FIRST-CLASS CITIZEN, IRRESPECTIVE OF RELIGION, RACE OR LANGUAGE.”
