There will be a great Turkish-Islamic Union. An Islamic Union under Turkish leadership. This is something our Prophet (pbuh) says is destined to happen in the End Times. One fine aspect of it is that it will be under Hazrat Mahdi’s (pbuh) leadership. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), the King Messiah, will assume leadership of it. And it will amaze the world and be instrumental in great things taking place. There will be a glorious civilization. There will be an ease and wealth the like of which has never been seen before. People will be released from their pains and suffering. They will live longer. And with the coming of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) from the Presence of Almighty Allah. As we believe in the coming of Jesus the Messiah (pbuh). Jesus the Messiah (pbuh) will unite with Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and act as his vizier, or assistant. They will cause peace and beauty to reign all over the world. There will be complete peace and security, insha’Allah. Islam will rule the world in all its glory. There will be no more bigotry, extremism or violence. Everyone will have freedom of ideas and belief.
Insha’Allah, we will see these fine days. You are entrusted to us by Allah; the children of the prophets Abraham (pbuh), Ishmael (pbuh) and Israel (pbuh). Insha’Allah, you will enjoy those fine days you deserve. We are in the time of the King Messiah. A fine age. May Allah bestow peace, ease and well-being on your hearts. Turkey is your friend, so you can be at ease. Turkey will protect you at all costs and is taking protective measures. You can also relax on that. This applies to the entire region, not just to Israel. Turkey is determined to protect the whole region at whatever cost. We are your friends and we love and embrace you. My greetings to all my Muslim, Christian and Jewish brothers. My love and respects to you.

But of course, devout Christians, Jews and Muslims must form an alliance. Because the enormous atheist movement in the world, the communist-Darwinist-materialist movement, is highly organized. And it is supported by 99% of the world’s states. There are effectively none that do not support it. That is why it is so terrible. A determined struggle against that is serious, insha’Allah. I am feebly trying to discharge that duty. I shall continue, insha’Allah, and eventually finish the business on the intellectual plane. Let me say this, let me remind people once again, because it is a most excellent thing to say. Every day of the week they kept saying that, “the missing link has been found, this or that fragment has come to light, the missing pieces have been completed” in reference to Darwinism. They were always saying that kind of thing, weren’t they? But they no longer have the strength to lie. I have knocked them down with science and knowledge. I have so thrashed them that they have lost their senses entirely. They are no longer able to speak at all. The cudgels of knowledge have knocked them to the ground. You used to lie. Lying was free, wasn’t it? Why are you not telling lies now? Because they cannot any more. They cannot spread lies. They used to be able to take things away from people, but we do not let them do that any more, as you can see.

Hypocrites try to close a very important and effective path that Muslims will draw strength from against atheism, godlessness, and irreligion. What is that? Forming an alliance with devout Christians. And with devout Jews. Because when such a force comes into being it will be devastating. They cannot withstand it. Not in terms of ideas and means. But when believers are divided, when Christians, Muslims and Jews are all separate, then that strength is divided, too. It is divided into three; Muslims, Christians and Jews. And they further weaken Muslims by dividing them into different communities, groups and sects. But the hypocrites tell them, “You are on the right path.” “You are a Sunni. What business do have with Shiites, or Jaferites, or Wahhabis? They are disbelievers and should be cut into ribbons.” And thus they weaken Muslims. Whereas Muslims must abandon all sectarian differences between them, for one thing. Second, they must build an alliance with devout Christians. Third, they must build an alliance with devout Jews. Because the way of the dajjal [antichrist] is a huge force. But hypocrites are quite comfortable. They just want to take care of their own affairs, have fun and pursue their own worldly interests, whatever those may be. But there, they show off and try to tell people what to do. And with that mentality they imagine they can prevent Islamic Union. But Allah has ordained Islamic Union in destiny. Nobody can stop that. Allah shows us in the Qur’an how Islamic Union will come about, and the Qur’an also explicitly refers to us having to establish an alliance with Christians. Allah tells us in a verse how to preach to them, how to speak to them, and even that we will find those calling themselves Christians close to us. There is a verse about that, a verse from the Qur’an.

(An answer to the question “Is there any objection to taking Christians and Jews as friends?”)
For instance, if I say, “I believe in the Trinity,” may Allah forbid. That is what the Qur’an forbids. I can love them as people. Of course I can be friends in human terms. How else can you tell people about Islam and the Qur’an? This is a very foolish idea. Allah has created him as a Christian. Why should I be his enemy? Why should I hate him? Of course I must love him. The same with the Jews. They are from the line of the prophets. Why should I hate them? I pray for their happiness, and for them to be Muslims. Why should I hate them?

There is no such thing as inter-faith dialogue. Everyone, be they Christian, Jew or Muslim, must be in contact with everyone else. That is what the faith and what the Qur’an commands. It is not something discovered subsequently. The Qur’an commands us to “speak with them in the kindest way.” Of course we must be in communication. We will go and dine with you, and you will come and eat with us. That is what the Qur’an commands. Our Prophet (pbuh) was always with the People of the Book. So such interaction is already commanded by Allah in the Torah and in the Qur’an. For example, in the next few days, several well-known rabbis will come to visit us here. And we will welcome them in the finest manner. They have come here before, and we welcomed them and spoke together. The chief rabbi. I invited the Minister of Interior Affairs. Insha’Allah they will attend. They are thinking of visiting. I would be honored, insha’Allah.
Some extremists loathe me for supporting Israel. But I am proud of it. I am not afraid, and such things do not affect me. I espouse the truth. I do what I know to be right. I am not worried about what other people will think or whether I am upsetting any balances. I do what is right and true, no matter what the cost. Wherever there is injustice, I oppose it for Allah’s sake, with love, knowledge and science.

Muslims act in compliance with the Qur’an. Jews also will comply with the original Torah. We are the servants of Allah, we will love one another very much. We will look with an eye of peace, with a positive eye, with an auspicious eye.
Political disputes are not important at all. They will all settle down and turn out to be all right. Everyone will be positive and fine. You will witness this in some time. These [incidents] are all temporary.
They will all be brothers. On one side is the sons of Prophet Ishmael (as) and the other side is the sons of Prophet Jacob (as). There may always be conflicts among brothers. But this will end up in peace because we are in the age of King Messiah and Hazrat Mahdi (as). You will see that what I am telling is true. They will embrace one another and be brothers. Security precautions will also be lifted. The region will enjoy tremendous welfare, beauty and peace. Israeli young people will enjoy life with their Palestinian friends. These are all artificial problems arising from the temptation of satan. These will all be removed. Attentively follow world history and you will see that it is true.
I would like to caress the cheeks of those little Israeli kids and embrace you. I would like to embrace the Palestinian young people. I love you all and I send my greetings and respect to all of you. I express my deepest love to Muslims, Christians and Jews. We will see one another soon, we will embrace one another. Let your hearts be at ease. All these fights and tension will come to an end.
The graves of all Prophets, your grandfathers who are the prophets, are there. Everything you have is there. You will surely live there. Also according to the Qur’an Allah relates that you will be there, it is your homeland. You will live in peace and bliss. Allah settled you there. Of course you will be there. But free and at ease. You will live in every corner of the world comfortably. The pressure over you will be completely lifted, because we are in the era of King Messiah. The pain of the Palestinians will also come to an end. The tension over our Arab brothers and all the Islamic world will disappear. The age of peace and ease will come. You will witness this.

We know that especially in the End Times Christianity will disappear in Islam, Insha'Allah. This is also a verse depicting the End Times, because the last verses generally refer to the End Times. The verses refer to every time but Almighty Allah especially revealed that verse as a cure to the corruption of the End Times, the scourge of trinity. Almighty Allah says, “Allah is One.”

“To a certain degree, it is concealed.” “To a certain degree”, Bediuzzaman says. “Missionaries”; Christian Missionaries, those who preach Christianity, clergy, monks, and the followers of the Risale-i Nur have to be very careful. So who has to be careful? One; missionaries, two; Christian clergy, three; the followers of the Risale-i Nur. “That is because, the movement of the West”; which means, Marxist-Leninist thinking. At the moment there is the terror organization of the PKK (Kurdistan Workers’ Party), and all sorts of communist movements in the world. Notice that, “The movement of the West”; that is, those who follow Marxist- Leninist thinking, the materialistic thinking, will ally among themselves to disrupt the alliance of Christian missionaries and Islam. That is the alliance of Muslims and Christians. Don’t we see the same feature in today’s bigots? Don’t we see this in the action of such a bad lot? Those who commit prostitution, the dirt bags , they all struggle to ruin this alliance. Notice that Bediuzzaman informed us this about 70 years ago. Look, “They will struggle to ruin the alliance between Islam and the missionaries.” That is why they say, “Why are you not hostile to the People of the Book?” Why don’t you blaspheme them? Why don’t you curse Christians?
Bediuzzaman says that some Muslims may attract some communists to their side. The terror organization PKK also attracts some Muslims to its side. They attract some disbelievers and we indeed see them saying, “Never ally with Christians.” So with whom shall we ally? With Communists and atheists. Bediuzzaman says, “This time I violated my principle and have taken a look at the world.” So who are the ones that give command to these jackals? Communists. There are those communists in the appearance of Muslims. Bediuzzaman stresses that these communists will draw some of the Muslims to their side. “They are drawing and they will draw.” That is to say, “Behind the plot of damaging the alliance of Christians and Muslims, there exists the world’s atheism, the system of the dajjal.” He also says that if Christians and Muslims make an alliance, the issue will be over, Insha’Allah.

We want all the people in the world to be happy; Christians, Jews, everyone. The morality of Islam; in the Turkish-Islamic Union, what is it that would prevail the world? Justice, love, compassion, mercy, goodness, beauty, art, aesthetics, science, everything that is humane, all sorts of beauty. Why should Palestine live with fear? Why should Israel live with fear? I always keep saying that we should tear down those walls and open up the region. Why is there the need for police control points, my brother? Let them live as ever they like. When we brought our Jewish brothers here from Spain they said; "Alhamdulillah". We've brought them to a very beautiful place, to Istanbul. We brought them to the most beautiful city of the empire. We've welcomed them in the most beautiful city and they enjoyed the utmost freedom. Let them be free again, let them take comfort in that. Why should those people be living in fear? Why should Palestine live in fear? Feeling the fear of an operation every instant, feeling the fear of the police. Let us remove all these. All these are unnecessary, all of them are plots of the satan. Money continually goes to armaments. Why is there the need for weapons? Everywhere is full of hungry people. Let us send food to them, let us send them clothes, let us buy elegant clothes, beautiful cars for them. Let us send them cars instead of tanks. What is the meaning of sending tanks? Instead of sending them warplanes, let us send them cargo planes. Instead of building military fortifications let us build hospitals, let us build schools.

Shias are very pious, God-fearing, devout people. Their prayers, their ablution, all are perfect. They are very decent people. Their faith is right. There is no difference in between Sunni and Shia belief anyway. They are both the same; they both are people of the Kiblah, they both are people of Salat.
A9 TV; September 14th, 2011
Showing compassion to the People of the Book was a moral virtue put into practice by our Prophet (saas) in the time of our Prophet (saas). Our Prophet (saas) was very compassionate towards the Christians and the Jews. That was the same at the time of the Ottomans, they always adopted a compassionate and protective attitude towards the People of the Book. We are following in the steps of the Messenger of Allah (saas), so we are adopting such a compassionate attitude as well. We are adopting a calming approach. We do not want war, we do not want tension. We want everyone to live in peace, calm and in brotherhood.
A9 TV; September 14th, 2011
Those who believe in Allah are uniting against the dajjal (anti-messiah) on the same matter. What is the dajjal after that? When the Jews, Christians and Muslims unite against the denial of the existence of Allah (may Allah forbid) in collapsing Darwinism and materialism, the blind eye of the dajjal (anti-messiah) would be smashed in and the matter would thus be closed. We will, insha'Allah, be in a brotherly, friendly life of amicability and nice activity together insha'Allah about the Oneness and existence of Allah insha'Allah. Of course we have different religions, but we are brothers in this world. Jews are brothers in religion among themselves and Muslims are brothers in religion among themselves. But we have to strive together and make an alliance against Godlessness and Faithlessness. If those who believe in Allah fall out with each other, the dajjal (anti-messiah) would benefit from that and we cannot let that happen. We will defeat the blind eye of the dajjal (anti-messiah). For instance, look, the attitude of our brothers are very nice as well, it is very nice that they saw the light in their face. In the hearts of the children of the Prophet Abraham (pbuh) insha'Allah there is a profound love of Allah and because they love Allah, we do love them as well, they love all the Prophets, we do pray that insha'Allah they will become Mohammedans. However the verse that states that "there is no compulsion in religion" is very explicit, the command of the Qur'an is open. I mean this command of Allah is valid until the Last Day, no member of any religion can ever be forced to convert to another religion. You might advise, you might preach but you would say that the decision is up to him. If you use compulsion you would be waging a war against the Qur'an, you would be waging a war against the commandments of Allah. There can be no compulsion in religion. That is because religion is a beauty that happens with love, affection and heart. What happens when there is compulsion? Hypocrites come up, may Allah forbid. Some fools attempt to make people Muslims by using force; this would be unlawful, that is because you would be making that person a hypocrite, you would be acting against the command of the Qur'an. He should do so lovingly and with affection.
