What was the world population in the past? Fifty million at most, perhaps 100 million. Just the number of people who died in the Second World War was the total population of the world in those times he refers to as the past. The total population in what he refers to as the past is the number of those who died in the First World War, or the Second World War. In other words, not 10,000 or 100,000, or 200,000 or 300,000. And never has 99% of the world population been irreligious before. People have always been believers. Never after the time of our Prophet (saas) have 99% of people fallen into irreligion, Darwinism and materialism [as now].
He says that “the portents of Hazrat Mahdi (as) have not come about. May Allah grant the Master a long life. Even if he were to live for another 300-500 years and if the waters of the Euphrates were stopped once again after 500 years, if there were eclipses of the Sun and Moon at 15-day intervals, if two comets appeared, if hundreds of millions or a billion people died or were crippled, as in the Second World War, if Iraq and Afghanistan were occupied again, if an army vanished in the desert in line with the hadiths of our Prophet (saas), as happened to the Iraqi Army, if there were an attack on the Kaaba, and then if we went to the Master and said, “look, all the portents of the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (as) have come about, just as described by our Prophet (saas), and one after the other, within the space of 30 years,” he will still say, “The time is not yet.”
I have listed all the portents according to the hadiths. Have they all come about? Yes, they have. Disorder has risen to the highest levels. And Muslims are being horribly slaughtered everywhere in the world. And Muslims are disunited for the first time. Muslims have never been this disunited before. And Muslims are leaderless for the first time. One billion people have been killed and martyred, one billion. And for the first time ever, 99% of people are irreligious, they have become Darwinists and materialists. Has that ever happened before? And all the portents of the comings of Hazrat Mahdi (as) have come about all together for the first time in 5,000 years.
When a person becomes mentally ill, Allah has taken their soul.Many of these are paranoid schizophrenics, and Allah has taken their souls, insha’Allah. Young men suddenly become schizophrenics, they die, insha’Allah. The way they walk and talk are all different. Allah has taken their souls from them. They live with a second “identity.” Sometimes, very rarely, they get better. Allah thus restores their souls, insha’Allah.
What is Hazrat Mahdi (as) meant to do? To espouse Islamic Union. Do I espouse it? Yes. As a follower of Hazrat Mahdi (as). To eliminate materialism and Darwinism. Do I do that? Yes. Darwinism and materialism are a religion that now rule the world. It dominates all the world’s universities, all official institutions – just about all – and all armies, with a very few exceptions. The great majority of the world’s armies are Darwinist. Very few have been liberated from it. The way of the dajjal prevails in a way it never has before.
What is the way of the dajjal? Is it not the denial of Allah? Has denial of Allah ever been so widespread as to cover the whole world? No, never.
The dajjal has two important tasks. One is to kill people, to produce corruption, anarchy and terror. The second main task is to lead people toward irreligion. In fact, the dajjal’s main task is to propagate irreligion. Has he done that, or not? Yes. Has the world ever been so atheist, irreligious, Darwinist and materialist? No.
“What the hadiths regarding the sufyan and Hazrat Mahdi (as) mean is this: irreligion will have two powerful movements in the End Times: The first is A HUGE, hypocritical INDIVIDUAL KNOWN AS THE SUFYAN who will deny the Path and Prophethood of our Prophet (saas) under the guise of discord (appearing to be a Muslim despite being an unbeliever) and will lead the hypocrites.” Note that he does not say he will lead the irreligious. The greatest danger in the Muslim world is hypocrisy. False scholars, false clergy and false teachers will lead them. He will not lead the unbelievers, he will lead the hypocrites.
Iran and Turkey are friends. These are empty words. But of course it is again the way of the Mahdi that will eliminate this strife. Look, can you see the need for Hazrat Mahdi (as)? The collective personality is literally swamping the Islamic world. But it is not happening. It has to be Hazrat Mahdi (as). It will come to an end if Turkey and Iran unite. That will be the greatest alliance, because they are two regional super powers, in the Middle East. Then things will happen in a chain reaction. In particular, unity and an alliance between these two countries in particular will really enrage the unbelievers.
Some of our brothers want the prime minister to be friends with everyone. Nobody can bear such stress. It is too hard. “I have a friend, how about if you do this or that for them?” A million people like that would turn up. How can he do that? The alleged terror organization Ergenekon is putting pressure on from one direction, and others from other directions. A thousand things are going on. In that situation the only thing to do is provide good support, show affect, try to direct the spiritual backing of the nation and make it possible to act comfortably. For instance, some of our brothers say, “We were close once, but then he gave me the cold shoulder.” What do you expect him to do? They want him to take an interest in all their doings, find jobs for their children… But then he could never do his own job. They should put themselves in his place. Impossible. It is a very hard job. Not everyone has the strength to do it, insha’Allah. It is a really stressful job, really hard. That is why everyone has to display compassion. It is wrong to make it a matter of pride and arrogance. Otherwise it is very hard.
Turkey’s Daily Vakit is a very courageous and outspoken paper. There is no reason for doubt. It is a courageous paper that informs and enlightens people with reliable information. It fears Allah alone, and is completely honest. Its owner and his children and its employees are all very respectable. It uses a courageous language. And it always writes the truth. They write it bravely and forthrightly. That is why it has been the target for various sinister forces. They have been shot at and raided several times. Various things have happened. But they are still heroically going as strong as ever, insha’Allah.2011-09-30 20:11:44
