Muslim scholars and all Muslims have been striving for Islamic years for 100 years, since the time of SultanAbdulhamid. Thousands, tens of thousands of Ottoman gold were spent. Meeting were held and units set up, but no results were obtained. Because they did not adhere to our Prophet’s (saas) word. Our Prophet (saas) said that Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) was essential for Islamic Union. There can be no Turkish-Islamic Union without Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). It will still be impossible even if a century goes by. Not even if hundreds of people, hundreds of groups work for it. The happiness and excitement that the way of the Mahdi will lead to will be bestowed by Allah. Allah has made Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) a precondition. Almighty Allah says, "Bring Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), find Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and I will bestow happiness and draw you all together.” If people say, “We feel no need for what Allah and the Prophet say. We can unite ourselves and there is no need for those things,” then they can never achieve results. Of course, there is a judgment about failing to act on this, and they will have to account for themselves in the hereafter. You cannot have Islamic Union that sidelines our Prophet (saas).
Some 20 Companions are in agreement when they report the very detailed hadiths of our Prophet (saas) concerning Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). Twenty or so Companions do not even report matters of religious law in such agreement. If someone says the way of the Mahdi is unimportant, that means he is saying the Prophet (saas) is unimportant. It means he is saying the words of our Prophet (saas) are unimportant. In that case, all the hadiths that constitute the basis of Sunni belief will be sidelined. If some denies the completely trustworthy hadiths about Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) reported by some 20 Companions, then he must already be rejecting the other hadiths, too. In that case, all the provisions regarding the law cease to apply. If you deny the way of the Mahdi, you are rejecting the revelation of the Prophet (saas) of Allah. Some people say, “There is no such thing as Islamic Union.” They have no such intention. “The Prophet (saas) would have done it,” they say. They imagine they are being very clever by putting forward the Prophet (saas). Such a person is showing he is under satan’s influence. So what they are saying is; "Since the Prophet (saas) could not do it, neither can Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). So disbelief is going to defeat us, that is fine.” What kind of logic is that? How wrong that is. What a devilish way of thinking! What is the truth? Allah reveals it to our Prophet (saas) by way of the angel Gabriel. The Prophet (saas) imparts that revelation to us. Our Prophet (saas) says that the happiness and union of the Islamic world is only possible with Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), him and his followers.”
We will win. Not the repulsive types who repel everyone by saying, “they are all unbelievers, heretics or Godless.” We will treat people with love and win, insha’Allah. Nobody should harbor any intention of seeking to gain the good opinion of bigots and fanatics and get them to say what a wonderful teacher he is by spitting words of hatred and bloodshed. The important thing is peace and love, and victory. Some people would gradually, step by step, cause Islam to melt away by saying, “they are all heretics,” thus denigrating them and not treating them like human beings, by accusing women of being irreligious or heretics because they wear only the headscarf instead of the full chador, or suggesting that other people have gone mad, adopting a policy that would alienate everyone. But Allah has preserved it and this corruption has disappeared. It is just a trick, the trickery of the antichrist. The antichrist first splits Muslims up into groups. And then into even smaller groups. They also try to divide Muslims by calling them heretics, Godless or apostates. They fragment immaculate Muslims and serve within the army of the dajjal. That is why Muslims must not fall for such a trap. Muslims must be on their guard against spied who spread hatred and accuse others of disbelief and apostasy, who declare them to be irreligious, who represent a very small number of Muslims and thus prepare the way for Muslims across the world to be rejected, who prepare the groundwork for Muslims across the world to be slaughtered en masse.
A Muslim must be inclusive, love all Muslims, respect them all, whether their heads are covered or not, and strive to make all people love Allah and the Qur’an. In addition, the life of our Prophet (saas) is there for all to see. He walked through the tents of Uqaz and the markets. Verses tell us that people wondered what kind of a prophet he was. He walked around in order to preach. Freemasonry is an ancient organization dating back 3000 or 4000 years. It was around in the time of our Prophet (saas). Our Prophet (saas) preached to the masons there. He preached to many masons. He preached to Jews and Christians. There were the Knights Templar at that time, and he preached to them, too. He preached to everyone, making no distinction between them. Allah does not tell us to discriminate, but to preach to everyone, sinners or those in error or whoever. But some bigots are trying to isolate these people and to smother Islam. They deny the existence of such a thing as preaching. But one cannot choose who to preach to. One must preach even to Pharaoh or Nimrod. One must preach patiently, again and again, with powerful evidence, insha’Allah.
