(About Mr. Adnan Oktar’s representatives’ meetings in Israel)
We will later look back on these as fine memories. Israel will eventually openly ask to join the Turkish-Islamic Union. It will join the union. There will be peace in the region. Those borders and checkpoints will be abolished. Palestine and Israel will embrace one another. They will live very well and happily, insha’Allah. They will see the fine days of the King Messiah, Mashiach, Hazrat Mahdi (as). They will see Allah’s promise come true. They will see that the King Messiah, described in the Torah 3000 years ago, is true in all its details. Their faith and fervor will grow. They will see that what the Messenger of Allah (saas) said is true, and that will also increase their faith. Everyone will be happy. Satan incites blind strife. But the way of the Mahdi will put an end to satan’s snares, and we will see this, insha’Allah. Palestine is full of the loveliest people, the children of the Prophet Ishmael (as). Israel is also full of the loveliest people, the children of the Prophet Jacob (as). We will embrace them all and bring ease and delight to them all, insha’Allah.
The way of the Mahdi is gradually moving forward. Openly and positively, with sure steps, before the eyes of the world. And as followers of Hazrat Mahdi (as), we are also gradually advancing, insha’Allah. We will reveal peace and brotherhood to the eyes of the world. We will eradicate conflict, anarchy and terror. We will literally create an earthly paradise. It will literally be like paradise. We will not allow satan in. We will use science to break satan’s arms and legs. There is no room for him. We will do this with knowledge, science and love. We will kiss the cheeks of those cute little Israelis. Then there are those cute little Palestinian children running around, as well. We will kiss their cheeks, too. We will bring about peace, love and brotherhood. We want no fighting or bloodshed. We detest bloodshed. We want not a drop of blood to be spilled. Allah says that human beings are created weak. We cannot bear conflict. We will bring out joy and beauty and goodness. Satan will spill no blood of either the children of the Prophet Ishmael (as) or of the Prophet Jacob (as). We will not let him. We will also intellectually annihilate communism insha’Allah.
Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria all have a place in our hearts. I would love to go to Casablanca and chat in that delightful environment. Love improves and beautifies everyone. Those people have been left unguided and bereft of love. They have been oppressed and despised. Allah will restore their honor, virtue and beauty to them. He will further improve and beautify them. You will see, insha’Allah.
Do not sit and argue with people on Facebook. People have a tendency to argue. Allah has revealed that in a verse. “but, more than anything else, man is argumentative” Allah says. That is why they spend two or three hours when they start arguing. You just set the truth out unilaterally. Then they can wriggle all they want. But the truth will always come out.
I will produce a rational counter-explanation to the idea of Hazrat Mahdi (as) prevalent in Shiite and Jafari belief, insha’Allah. I am writing a book about that and we are also preparing a video on the subject. From what I can see, they have produced a conception of Hazrat Mahdi (as) like that in Catholicism. Because we also talk with Catholics. We say, “Jesus the Messiah (as) will come.” And they say, “Yes, of course he will.” We ask when, and they say, “Just at the time of Reckoning.” They also say, “If you want to see the Prophet Jesus (as) Allah will show him to you in your heart and he will come to you.” Now these people have that same way of thinking. Just like that among Catholics. They are awaiting Hazrat Mahdi (as) in that sense. Because they have no need for Hazrat Mahdi (as) to come. Because they say, “you see him when you want to.” So in their eyes, why should Hazrat Mahdi (as) come? “Because if you want him, Hazrat Mahdi (as) will come to you. As an image and a voice. He will do what you want. For example, if you want forty shirts, he will bring them to you,” they say. That is the kind of system. Through it, they have already done away with the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (as), since in their view there is no need for him to come. Why desire Hazrat Mahdi (as)? Is it not to be able to talk to him and benefit from his ideas? But you already talk with him. He enters every home in spirit form, as an image. He can speak with everyone. As an image or a voice, as you wish. He may appear as an image of a physical form if you wish. “It is unclear when he will come,” they say. How is the time of his coming uncertain? What does our Prophet (saas) tell us in the hadiths? What are the portents of the End Times? How can it be at all uncertain? My apologies to those of them who are well-intentioned. Everyone knows how much I respect Shiites and Alawites. Everyone knows I love them. But this is terribly wrong. It is a huge snare for Islam. And I cannot sign up to any threat to Islam. They are acting out of lack of knowledge. But should I turn a blind eye? What can I do? They are unaware of the damage they are causing. Of course, I must warn them. I have also spoken to leading Catholics. They are clearly not expecting the Prophet Jesus (as). Because they say; “you can see him anywhere, whenever you wish, and he will do what you ask, and you can consult him.” So why await the Prophet Jesus (as) at all? They are saying the same thing about Hazrat Mahdi (as). They see him, and he comes everywhere. So naturally they have no need for him to come. But I will describe the perils here day and night so everyone can understand. There is no other way, insha’Allah.
The Characteristics of the Followers of Hazrat Mahdi (as)
“They will prefer hunger once Allah has fed them, nakedness after He has clothed them and thirst after He has given them to drink.” What is being described here? They have no fear of hunger, beatings, curses or defamation. There are all earthly things. Hunger, thirst and the rest. What does someone who attaches no importance to these things consider? You can kill them or do what you like. Martyr them. They still carry on. That is what it means. Otherwise people may go hungry or thirsty. Irreligious people may also go thirsty. What is described here is the control of the followers of the Mahdi (ad) over their earthly desires, their determination. Take lack of sleep, for instance. A person can go without sleep if he uses his will. Thirst will also have no effect on a person unless he keeps worrying about it. The main thing being described here is how they resist pain and pressure. They withstand defamation and difficulties. That is what is being described. No matter what psychological techniques you apply, they will resist.
“They place their hopes in Allah and abandon these things.” Because people always think about getting rich quick. They want a house, a summer house, a winter house, to take an interest in their children, to have a good education, to make lots of money, to eat and drink very luxuriously and the like. The followers of Hazrat Mahdi (as) will have no such concerns. They are not worried about getting married, or making enough money or getting rich. They are not concerned over summer and winter houses. They have no concerns about checks and IOUs. All they worry about is Islamic Union and the approval of Allah. They turn all their attention to that. Their minds and brains are therefore immaculate. Otherwise, is the brain capable of doing everything? People worry about taking their wives out, taking their children to the doctor, paying the rent, paying their debts, and mending the roof of the summer house, all at the same time. They cannot cope with everything. But what do the followers of Hazrat Mahdi (as) do? “O Lord,” they say, “we have turned our backs on this world. We seek Your approval alone.” What do they concentrate exclusively on? On preaching and the signs leading to faith and on earning the approval of Allah.
“They even abandon lawful things out a fear of being called to account.” Marriage is lawful, for instance. But they forego it. A summer house. Having a house is also lawful. Houses appear in the Qur’an. But they are not worried about houses or property. Nor about children. All they seek is the approval of Allah. Because time is short and their means are limited. So what do they do? They concentrate on what will most earn the approval of Allah. For example, I have half an hour and a billion lira. What should I do? Should I get married? Or buy a house? Or do something else? Or seek the approval of Allah? Since they concentrate on the approval of Allah, they spend that half hour on His approval. They spend their money for His approval. They concentrate on what is urgent, where the most of Allah’s approval lies. What is most urgent? Someone is dying for instance, and is lying on the ground. Someone has a broken arm. Someone else has toothache. Someone is hungry. Which is most urgent? The person who is dying. To save him. The person with a broken arm can be treated later. The dying man is the urgent one. You cannot abandon him to help the person with toothache, insha’Allah.
Raise your levels of general culture and be mature. Do not go along with aggressive, psychopathic types. Concentrate on love and compassion and forgiveness. On pleasant talk. Let your conversation be pleasant and effective. General culture is particularly important. It is also important to know how to criticize Marxism and Leninism and Darwinism, to know why Darwinism is untrue. Read the Qur’an from end to end. My expositions of the Qur’an are important. Our brothers should read them. But things are going well, masha’Allah, thanks be to Allah. Whatever Allah says, happens. Whatever Allah wishes, that is destiny, and progresses in the finest way. Nothing else can happen in any case, masha’Allah. “Whatever He does, He does well,” they say of Almighty Allah.
(About the reports of Prime Minister Erdoğan praying together with thousands of Libyans )
This is very fine news, masha’Allah. There is a warmth, the light of Islamic Union, the joy of Islamic Union everywhere. Has what I said come true? I am not just making things up, am I? I said, “You will see with your own eyes, and I am with you.” We are now in 2011. We will see where I am speaking from in 2021. Other great things will happen. You will see in 2021. And even in 2014 and 2017, Allah, Allah, masha’Allah. You will pray, “May Allah be pleased with you, Master. You warned us in good time.” My advice is for everyone to make haste to be a follower of Hazrat Mahdi (as). They must pray to Allah. Look. I pray. They must pray, too. And also be followers of Jesus the Messiah (as).
We must have interpreters in many languages. There is no other solution. That will also happen with time. What I say will be simultaneously broadcast in 70 languages. What Hazrat Mahdi (as) says will be broadcast in 120 languages, insha’Allah. You will see, insha’Allah. What Jesus the Messiah (as) says will be broadcast in 120 languages, insha’Allah. Simultaneously, insha’Allah.
Of course Muslims must have a leader, no matter what they say. You cannot have leaderless Muslims. And what harm is there in that? Why should they not have a leader? Muslims must definitely have a leader. There is no need for unnecessary tactics and measures. They will not make Europe at all uneasy. Muslims will only be a danger if they are leaderless. This corruption emerges because they are leaderless. Afghanistan has no leader, Iraq has no leader, and neither do other places. Muslims are trampling one another down. But if they had a leader, he would assume responsibility. “What are you doing?” he will ask. “Behave properly.” And that will be that. But Muslims are wretched and miserable like this because they have no leader. The frightening thing is for Muslims to be leaderless. Not them having a leader. That would act as a guarantee. It would mean the world could relax and take it easy. Nothing bad would come of it. But not having a leader is like a cancer. Anarchy begins. Leaderless Islam is like a cancer, a threat, in one sense.
There is therefore nothing wrong in Muslims having a leader. That will make Muslims honorable, strong, healthy, competent and active. It will lead to constant excellent service. But without leadership, you see endless terror, anarchy, corruption, poverty and misery. It cannot happen with a collective personality. But of course Allah will send someone as a leader. Looking at the hadiths we can see that this person is called Hazrat Mahdi (as). Muhammad the Mahdi (as). Our Prophet (saas) tells us these glad tidings. Destiny is now heading in that direction. Destiny is flowing in the direction of Hazrat Mahdi (as). It seems that only Hazrat Mahdi (as) can go down this road. Nobody else. Allah has made the road accordingly. When anyone else tries to go down that road, they catch their arm or leg and cannot make any progress. Allah has created destiny so that only Hazrat Mahdi (as) can go down it and only he can bring that easing. The Islamic world and teachers must pull themselves together. They cannot do anything without Hazrat Mahdi (as). It is impossible for them to choose a leader among themselves. In other words, it is impossible for anyone other than Hazrat Mahdi (as) to be chosen as leader. That has been tried many times. But nobody can agree. They will only accept Hazrat Mahdi (as) as leader.
