Highlights from Adnan Oktar's Interview dated February 16, 2011


Kayseri TV, 16 February 2011

  • Can evil be tolerated? Of course we cannot tolerate it. Of course we will condemn a murderer. But it is also wrong to regard people not involved in the murder as guilty. We embraced the Armenians in the time of the Ottoman Empire. Their name was The Loyal Nation. Look at the Ottoman archives and see. We had Armenian generals. They commanded our troops. There were Armenian doctors, engineers and artists. Armenians are very high quality people. When Darwinist, materialist philosophy appeared, communist and fascist thinking developed. And fascist Armenians encouraged bloodshed in order to support fascism in Turkey and Armenia. Because fascism cannot grow without bloodshed. Fascism needs blood. The more people are killed, the stronger fascism grows. The more bombings and attacks there are, the more the foundations are laid for fascist thinking. They therefore laid the way for fascism by martyring vast numbers of people. But Turkey rejected fascism. It did not flourish in Armenia, either. They tried very hard to develop it. Do you know what the objective was? For them to say, how many Turks have been martyred? Say, 100,000 people. So what do we need to do? We must annihilate a million of them. Or 10 million. Then when we lost 10 million, we would have to massacre 100 million of them. That is the philosophy of fascism. There is no peace, no amnesty, no brotherhood or love or anything. We must not fall into satan’s trap. Who are the guilty? Them. And you must take them off and punish them. But why punish Armenian children, young girls, mothers and old men who had nothing to do with it? It is the people who did it who are responsible. That is what the Qur’an says. The others are of no interest.
  • Affection and compassion is an important emotion given us by Allah. Disbelief regards affection and compassion as illogical. For example, if having a friend conflicts with someone’s interests, the friend will be abandoned. If you ask why, he will say he did the logical thing. If you ask if conscience was involved, he will say not. They always concentrate on logic. According to that logic, forgiveness is illogical. Helping others is illogical. Why should I, when I am in need myself? Why should I give money? They ask. Even if they already have a lot, they think that having more is even better. They do not give money. Conscience is something that costs them time and money. Their logic questions why they should give away time and money. But Islam is built on conscience. But disbelief is built on reason and cold logic. Logic regards the hereafter as meaningless. It questions how one can be restored to life after death. But conscience is not like that. Pharaoh thought logically, for instance. He looked at the Prophet Moses (as) and studied the Torah. He saw that Islam would rule the world through Hazrat Mahdi (as). That is going to cost me all be belongings and possessions, he thought. If they grow strong I will become weak, he thought. The best thing is to make them captive, he said. That is logic. But the Qur’an does away with that. The Qur’an teaches us to make life comprehensible. A good person may be poor. It makes no difference for a Muslim, who will value him just the same. For example, this summer I saw someone in a car making rude gestures. The person in the other car challenged him to get out of the car. There was a scuffle, then they got back in their cars and drove off. Both sides suffered. Failure to abide by the Qur’an leads to scourges at every point of life. There is no joy in marriages, friendships or many other things.

Hold fast to the rope of Allah all together, and do not separate. Remember Allah’s blessing to you when you were enemies and He joined your hearts together so that you became brothers by His blessing. You were on the very brink of a pit of the Fire and He rescued you from it. In this way Allah makes His signs clear to you, so that hopefully you will be guided. (Surah Al ‘Imran, 103)

Allah tells us not to be divided, not to split into different sects and communities. Cling tightly to one another. Allah does not accept another group other than one. He says “altogether”.

Let there be a community among you who call to the good, and enjoin the right, and forbid the wrong. They are the ones who have success. (Surah Al ‘Imran, 104)

In one sense, this is the community of Hazrat Mahdi (as). A community that “enjoins the right and forbids the wrong.” 

Do not be like those who split up and differed after the clear signs came to them. They will have a terrible punishment (Surat Al ‘Imran, 105)

What happened to Muslims? They split up and were divided. They fell out. They were totally unaware of one another. Allah issues an explicit threat, saying “they will have a terrible punishment.”

Fight them until there is no more corruption and the religion is Allah’s alone. If they stop, Allah sees what they do, (Surat al-Anfal, 39)

What is corruption? Anything outside the moral values of the Qur’an. Fight them until they fully live by the Qur’an. These are questions we will be asked in the hereafter, insha’Allah.

They only split up after knowledge came to them, tyrannizing one another. And were it not for a prior decree from your Lord for a specified term, the judgment between them would already have been made. Those who inherited the Book after them are indeed in grave doubt about it. (Surat ash-Shura, 14)

They were divided because of the disputes and conflicts between them.

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)

They say, “The Mahdi (as) will not come, the Prophet Jesus (as) will not come and Islam will not rule.” What does Allah say, “Do not despair of the mercy of Allah.”

Obey Allah and His Messenger and do not quarrel among yourselves lest you lose heart and your momentum disappear. And be steadfast. Allah is with the steadfast. (Surat al-Anfal, 46)

Shiites, Alawaites, Sunnis and Bektashis are all different. Have Muslims fallen apart? Yes. Have they lost momentum? Yes. That is why Muslims have no power.

Those who are unbelievers are the friends and protectors of one another. If you do not act in this way there will be turmoil in the land and great corruption. (Surat al-Anfal, 73)

Darwinists and materialists really watch out for one another. They literally support each other all over the world. The way of the antichrist has enfolded the world. There is terrible corruption and degeneration.

Those who, when they are wronged, defend themselves. (Surat ash-Shura, 39)

In other words, whenever a Muslim is attacked, be it in Iraq or Afghanistan, Morocco or Tunisia, it makes no difference. They join forces and resist intellectually. Does that happen? No, there is no resistance in the Islamic world. That is a sin. We can see from these verses that Islamic Union is the greatest religious obligation.

Allah loves those whofight in His Way in ranks like well-built walls. (Surat as-Saff, 4)

There are those buildings built in blocks, one joined onto the next in a single whole. These are verses about the obligatory nature of Islamic Union.

As for those who divide up their religion and form into sects, you have nothing whatsoever to do with them. Their affair will go back to Allah and then He will inform them about what they did. (Surat al-An’am, 159)

It refers to those who split up into groups. Allah says that it is unlawful for Muslims to be divided.

You who believe! Respond to Allah and to the Messenger when He calls you to what will bring you to life! Know that Allah intervenes between a man and his heart and that you will be gathered to Him. (Surat al-Anfal, 24)

They do not want this, nor to strive on Allah’s path. Allah says they prefer their fathers, children, brothers, wives, friends and assets to striving on Allah’s path, to the way of Hazrat Mahdi (as), in other words. Then let them wait till they die, He says. He says He will bestow no happiness on communities of the impious after death. What happens after death? Where is your father then? He is back in this world. Where is your mother? She is also still in this world. The children? Still in this world. The money you made? That has also been left behind, He says. The houses you loved? Still in this world, along with everything else, He says. But where are you? I am in the hereafter. How many of you are there? Just me, he says. I am alone. Now Almighty Allah will tell him to account for himself. But he has nothing he can say. Everything has been left behind. Death can strike even when he thinks he is strongest. When you die they wrap you in a shroud and tie your jaw shut with a piece of linen cloth. So your mouth doesn’t open and your tongue roll out. They tie your toes together, so your feet don’t fall away. And various other procedures. They wrap you in a broad piece of cloth. White cloth, and they wrap it round and round you. They tie you from your feet and your waist again. Just like a parcel. Then they drop you down 2-2.5 meters under the ground. Where are all your possessions then? Where are you? Six feet underground. Everyone throws a handful of soil on top of you. Then the workers cover you up. There are very large concrete lids. Then they shovel earth on top of those. There is no light, sound or anything under the ground. You ask for your children, but not a sound comes. Where are your belongings? Silence. Where is your car? Your car is at your front door. But where are you? Under the soil. Where are all your friends on Facebook? Outside. Try and log onto facebook now. Try and ask how business is going now. You can’t get to the surface. How quickly does that happen? In just 10 years. Yet people still never turn to religion or think of the hereafter or reflect on Allah. Or a great many of them don’t. It is a miracle how so many people live for the present when the future is so obvious. Astonishing. They all encourage one another. They flatter one another. But Allah says in one verse that assets and children are just playthings. He says the world is a trifle and a bauble, a distraction. People love to boast. They love to boast of theircars and homes and spouses. But when they die and are buried they take none of these things with them. It is pitch black and silent down there. And cold. You spend hundreds of years down there. The reason why Allah prepares such a fate is to make people think of Him and draw closer to Him. But Allah says that sending down signs and the Qur’an just increases their hatred even more. That is why Almighty Allah says that people are cruel and ignorant. Even the Angels ask Allah why He creates human beings who will shed blood and behave ruthlessly. Allah says they cannot know, but He knows. One must reflect on death and be honest. Then one will have no reason to be proud.

  • It is important for there to be many people who cause others to think of Allah. One must take the friends of Allah as one’s own friends. It is hard to leave with people who always make one forget Allah. That is why one must take His friends as one’s own. Genuine, true Muslims. Not a false, foolish community.

  • “Where do you want us to prepare for it?” they [disciples] asked. He [Jesus] replied, “As you enter the city, a man carrying a pitcher of water will meet you. Follow him to the house that he enters.” (Luke 22:9-11)

The person carrying the pitcher of water is someone born under the sign of Aquarius. The reference of the man with the picher is to the sign of Aquarius. That is how it is expressed.

“Follow him to the house that he enters.” Follow him. The man with the pitcher in the Gospel is Hazrat Mahdi (as). Follow him, no matter what his faith or creed. If he espouses the true faith, adopt that belief, it says. It means that is the direction you must take.

So he sent two of his disciples, telling them, “Go into the city, and a man carrying a pitcher of water will meet you. Follow him. (Mark 14:13)

You will certainly encounter the Mahdi (as). Follow him, his path. It means that since he is a Muslim, you must hold to that same belief. Then a man carrying a pitcher will come, and the symbol and seal of mankind will rise to the eastern sky.

An Aquarian. The seal referred to here is the seal of our Prophet (saas). The east refers to the rise and growth of Islam.

“At that time, people with knowledge will raise their heads and know that the happiness of the world has come.”

In other words, they will know that Hazrat Mahdi (as) will come, that the world will be united, that there will be Islamic Union. Who will know? People with knowledge. Scholars, in other words. They will see that truth, it says in the Gospel.

If you love me, you will obey what I command. And I will ask God, and He will give you another Paraclete to be with you forever. (John, 14:15-16)

He will send a savior, a Mahdi. He says there is no other savior than Me. The Comforter is another name for the Mahdi (as).

But the Paracletewhom God will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. (John, 14:26)

Someone who adheres to Islam and the Qur’an. Someone of “my name,” in other words, who is descended from the line of the Prophet Abraham (as). He will send one “from my line.” The Qur’an really is in complete agreement with the Gospel.

“He will teach you everything.” He will teach you to strive against the antichrist and against injustice.

When the Counselor comes he will testify about me. And you also must testify about me... (John 15:26-27)

When the Comforter, Hazrat Mahdi (as) comes, he will tell of the coming of the Prophet Jesus (as). That is what this means. The Prophet Jesus (as), the Messiah, will come. The whole Christian world will become Muslim and the moral values of Islam will rule the world. “And you will bear witness.” You will also witness this as the whole world will witness it. They will see the Prophet Jesus (as).

But I tell you the truth: It is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Paraclete will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. When he comes, he will convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment. (John, 16:7-8)

He will condemn all that is wrong in the world. He will teach the world. He will eliminate godlessness and irreligion, Darwinism and materialism. That is what teaching means here.

The people of hell will gather round him and ask, “What brought you here?” The scholar will say, “I commanded what is good, but did not do it myself: I forbade what is bad, but I did it myself.” (Sahih Bukharî, Sahih Muslim)

One must not seek the existence and oneness of Allah in a state of confusion or difficulty. Allah has created us for things to be easy. Loving is easy, for example. Believing in Allah is easy. If we do not put pressure on ourselves, but loosen up instead, the existence of Allah is clear to see. What is the explanation for all this majesty appearing in a space the size of a lentil inside our brains? Even a 5-year-old child would have faith. When we look at the Qur’an we can at once see it is true. From its honesty as we read it, from the beauty of its words, we can tell the Qur’an is the truth. We already instinctively know paradise and hell inside ourselves. There is the instinct of eternal life within us. There is the sexual instinct within us. The instinct to eat and drink, and these are all satisfied. There is also the eternity instinct. That is the most powerful of all. But Allah has not satisfied that. But this shows that the instinct will eventually be satisfied. Because no instinct is created not to be satisfied. They are all eventually satisfied. So there is no need for anything terribly complicated. People may be troubles and worried. Because we are tested. Of course that will happen. So why and how are we to display fortitude? How can one feel love without patience? Without it, one will just be selfish and egotistical. Of course there will be times when we have to be patient, when we have to submit to Allah, when we cannot exhibit free will. That is quite natural.
