and you have seen people entering Allah’s religion in droves,
then glorify your Lord’s praise and ask His forgiveness.He is the Ever-Returning. (Surat an-Nasr, 1-3)
The abjad (numerical) value of verses 2 and 3, “when you have seen people entering Allah’s religion in droves, then glorify your Lord’s praise,” gives a date of 2016. “... entering in droves” here think of entering Istanbul, it gives a date of 1453 [the date of the capture of Constantinople], insha’Allah.
Have you seen him who denies the religion?
He is the one who harshly rebuffs the orphan
and does not urge the feeding of the poor.
So woe to those who do salat,
and are forgetful of their salat,
those who show off
and deny help to others. (Surat al-Maun, 1-7)
We see people who deny and struggle against religion everywhere. Allah compares those with no conscience to wood. They pray, but they are false. They have only attained happiness on the outside, in their own foolish eyes. Allah says they deceive people. They prevent what is good. They strive to prevent Islamic Union and the establishment of Turkish-Islamic Union and the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (as) and the return of the Prophet Jesus (as). They strive to prevent joy, happiness, smiling faces and love. Allah gives an explicit response to these bigoted types in the Qur’an.
Truly We have given you the Great Abundance.
So pray to your Lord and sacrifice.
It is the one who hates you who is cut off without an heir. (Surat al-Kawthir, 1-3)
“We have given you the Great Abundance.” That also gives an abjad value of 1453. The physical conquest in 1453. 1453 AD. When will the spiritual conquest take place? Hijri 1453 refers to the time of global dominion, insha’Allah. The hypocrites claimed that our Prophet’s (saas) line came to an end with the death of his son. They rejoiced at that, at the end of the line of our Prophet (saas). But our Prophet’s (saas) continued through his daughter. Global dominion in the End Times will be the answer to them all, insha’Allah. Hazrat Mahdi (as), from the line of our Prophet (saas) they said had come to an end, will rule the world. So much for his line coming to an end! Hazrat Mahdi (as) will rule the world, intellectually, in a glorious and fine manner. And he will rule it with the sayyids. The end of the world is a glorious one, with millions of sayyids. They said the line of our Prophet (saas) had come to an end, but it will rule the world, under a spiritual leadership, with millions of his descendants. Bediuzzaman speaks of “millions of sayyid joining together, and striving to discharge that duty together with him,” with Hazrat Mahdi (as).
The fine moral values of our Prophet (saas). “A daughter is an excellent child. She is affectionate, helpful, meek, blessed and filled with maternal feelings.”
“A daughter is a fine child.” Look at the bigots’ attitude toward women and the language our Prophet (saas) uses. Bigots have a huge hatred of women. Some people, hypocrites and pagans, failed to understand the way our Prophet (saas) played with and took an interest in children. Our Prophet (saas) emphasizes this abnormal mindset and describes its erroneous nature.
One one occasion, Akra ibn Habis saw our Prophet (saas) kiss Hazrat Hassan and said: “I have 10 children. But I have never kissed any of them.” At this, our Prophet (saas) said, “there can be no compassion for those without compassion.”
Not liking children is really strange. The hypocrites at that time were very cold and unfeeling toward children. The way our Prophet (saas) showed love for children and treated them very warmly was regarded as abnormal. They were unable to reconcile that with the prophethood. “They never approach most of us and we show them no love,” they said. That wrong tradition even continued in several places. The hypocritical tradition finds it hard to show love for children. It finds it hard to show love and regards it as something embarrassing. The Companions sometimes made mistakes, and the Prophet (saas) would warn them, and they would amend their behavior. My apologies to them. But this is a particular characteristic of hypocrites.
Anyone who spoke with the Prophet (saas) for a while would come to love him. All the Companions loved him with a passion, masha’Allah. He respected people of learning according to their degrees. He treated children like children, and people of learning like people of learning.
He kept his servants happy. Whatever he ate and wore, he also gave them to eat and wear. Most people’s servants live poorer than them. But his servants wore the same quality of clothing as he wore. If he ate meat, his servant ate meat, and there was no difference between them.
He was generous, helpful to all, affectionate, forgiving, heroic and gentle.
He was the bravest of the brave, and everyone knew of his heroic deeds. He spoke clearly, without goiung on too long. He did not speak too much, but what he said was effective.
Almighty Allah taught him all beauty, the true paths, what had happened to those in the past and what would befall people in the future, what would lead to happiness and salvation in the hereafter and what to desire and not desire in this world, as well as bestowing a glorious general culture on him.
With the knowledge he possessed through revelation, our Prophet (saas) possessed huge knowledge of medicine and of general matters.
Kahramanmaras Aksu TV, 14 February 2011
There will be a great movement and liveliness in the Islamic world. In the whole Islamic world, the world as a whole, there is a huge turning toward Turkey ispired in people’s hearts by Allah. Allah is inspiring the way of the Mahdi in people’s hearts. But there can be no peace, before the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (as), until the whole Ismalic world is under the leadership of a single individual. There will always be disorder. For example, if a person had five brains, one brain would be lowering an arm while another turned his heads to the right and another told it to look left. But that does not happen with a single brain. And the Islamic world must also have a single brain, and that is Hazrat Mahdi (as), insha’Allah.
Allah has created the test so deliberately. The reason why a person is spiritually tested, why people feel doubts, stems from the perfection of the environment of the test. In that climate, people think; they get headaches and face severe difficulties. An economic crisis breaks out. People are told that Hazrat Mahdi (as) will come. That might seem to be a fantasy to some people. But the events in the hadiths have come about in such a way as to elimate all room for free will when deciding on this. The Qur’an also eliminates any room for free will. The climate of the test is utterly perfect. Allah has created it absolutely perfectly. Hazrat Mahdi (as) will appear in the next few years. That will be pefectly natural, though preparing the way for that system is difficult and complex. Allah creates the details of life absolutely perfectly. The way of the Mahdi is also highly detailed and complex. Hugely detailed. I am one part of the way of the Mahdi. There are hugely complex systems in our own lives. When I began, in the 1980s, there was no internet and television was not at all widespread. There were no fossils. Allah created the Internet. That was a huge surprise. It gradually entered people’s lives. Gradually, so they had time to get used to it. There have been great advances in computers. That also happened gradually. It came about as if it were something perfectly normal. Satellite broadcasting, for instance. I never imagined we would be able to broadcast to the whole world by satellite.
The detailed planning in destiny is a separate matter. That man came to power in Egypt, for instance, and has been there for the last 30 years. They killed Anwar Sadat. Mubarak was with him, but not one of that hail of bullets hit him. Hundreds of shots were fired, but nothing happened to him and he stayed in power for 30 years. And Allah compared him to a rook. Our Prophet (saas) says he is like a rook. He says he will be cruel and oppress Muslims. That is an exact description of the man. Sheikh Nazim said there would be great disorder in Muslim countries. And they have seen that has happened.
Our President felt there would be good things happening in Islamic countries. Allah inspired that in him. All countries are now taking Turkey as a role model. They would not want to do that if they did not feel a warmth or something in Turkey. Adopting Turkey as a model means adopting the way of the Mahdi as a model. They want democracy, and in a few years’ time they will demand both Islamic Union and Hazrat Mahdi (as).
This is the main issue when we look at Islam and the Qur’an. There is a war between man and satan, a war between dajjals and mahdis. Allah has founded the system on that. The whole history of the world has been like that. Mahdis fight against dajjals. We are now in the most difficult times of all. This is the time of the most fanatical dajjals and the most powerful Mahdi. Our brothers must be honest, and then they will see that every page of the Qur’an talks about the struggle between the ways of the dajjal and the Mahdi.
That gives us excitement and meaning. I wage an intellectual struggle against the way of the dajjal. Otherwise my life would be meaningless. Life is nothing if you do not pray and fast, or if, may Allah forbid, you know nothing of Him and the faith. People, animals and flowers would all be meaningless. Nothing would have any meaning. It is when nothing has any meaning that people kill themselves. The reason is irreligion. Or else they have to take vast quantities of drugs. That is how Allah has created us. These things increase our depth, power of thinking and power of love. May He forbid, but if I did not believe in Allah’s promise, I would have no love or affection or desire to protect. The intellectual struggle against the dajjal is very exciting and enjoyable. Allah has instilled it in my soul. In the same way that children play their computer games. Hunting the dajjal down is great fun. Crushing little dajjals is really enjoyable.
