While the Turkish-Islamic Unity is being established, Allah does not make it happen without giving martyrs. This was also the case for the Ottoman Empire. During its establishment, many martyrs were given. This has always been the case. Great incidents happened before very important occurrences, insha’Allah.
Martyrdom is something to rejoice in. It is an honor, a blessing; it is not something to mourn about. Only idolaters mourn about death. Only unbelievers cry for such things. In the Qur’an God says, “Let them laugh less and cry a lot.” And what do you say? You say, “Do not laugh!” God says that for idolaters. Muslims do laugh, and they only cry out of love for God.
Pardoning murder and those who shot our soldiers and police officers, making their pardoning a lawful, legitimate issue would come to mean encouraging murder. It would mean completely disregarding our martyred soldiers and police officers. That would mean the gravest insult for the families of martyrs. Those who do that would be the most despicable ones.
If someone steps up and – may God forbid- says, “The PKK should be forgiven.” The meaning of that would clearly be: “What they did was normal, it is normal to shoot soldiers and it is okay to shoot police officers, of course they should be martyred –may God forbid- well done to those who did that!” Such a person would be millions of times more wicked, millions of times more treacherous and more perfidious. The PKK would be “clean” when compared to those. Such a person would then be the wickedest, most treacherous person in the world.
General Amnesty is murder beyond murder. If a person has shot a soldier or a police officer, if he martyred our police and if the number of those martyred is above ten thousand, if he mutilated tens of thousands and if you provide the means to deem that lawful, it would mean that you are a million times more treacherous and more perfidious than the PKK.
God loves self-devotion, self sacrifice. That is why God loves martyrdom. This is one of the beauties God loves the most. God calls it "one of the two best things." God calls martyrdom and becoming disabled while striving on the Path of God as the two best things. That is one's losing his arm, his leg on the Path of God. God likes this very much.
The families of our martyrs should never be left alone. Their homes should be like prayer houses. They should be immaculate, sparking clean places in which God's Name is mentioned every day. Their visitors should clean the house for everyone. They should say, "Mother, let us clean the house for you." They should do the dishes if there is the need to do so, they should cook for them if they don't have food.
When the time comes and a Muslim becomes a martyr, that is what God loves the most; that is the highest form of love. That is because it means one gives his life for God. Isn't one's life precious? He says, "My Lord, You made me love my life, I love You more than my life. My life is Yours. I am Yours." This is what it means. That is why Almighty God keeps martyrs in a separate place and does not make them die. They do not taste death.
God wants to be loved at the cost of one's life. That is why God loves martyrs. That is because God is the One Who gives that life. That is exactly the characteristic of a lover. But when He is not loved, God takes revenge. He says, "I create horror and I do not fear the horror that takes place. Love Me and I will love you." That is such a beautiful offer, such a beautiful response.
God regards martyrdom as the highest form of love. That is what God likes the most. But of course the most acceptable martyrdom is attained while one is actually striving on the path of God. That is because such a person goes to war openly knowing that it is possible that he will be killed and will be martyred there. Going on a struggle on the path of God, without feeling fear, is what is most acceptable.
Let us please put aside the habit of crying at the funerals of martyrs. It is not in compliance with the Qur'an, it is not in compliance with our customs; there is no such habit in the morality of Islam. That is a custom observed since the ancient Sumerians. It is not appropriate to cry after those who have gone to Heaven.
The body of the martyr should be shown all around the city. The funerals of martyrs are important. The invocations saying "Allahu Akbar" should resound in the city. At least a million people should gather. Then the national conscious would spurred. The whole country would benefit from the spirituality of the martyr.
Those soldiers are blessed with the rank of martyrdom and you feel yourself distressed and pained, how is that possible? What does being a soldier mean? It means learning the art of dying and killing for the good pleasure of God, for our homeland. God is the One Who gives life and He is the One Who makes them become martyrs. What more do you ask for? Martyrdom is the highest rank for a soldier.
Crying for a martyr is not compatible with an Islamic upbringing. Our Prophet (saas) has prohibited it. Crying, mourning is found in all the pagan customs of the ancient Sumerians, the Akkadians, the Hittites, ancient Egypt, ancient Greece. They lament, they cry. But in Islam being a veteran, being a martyr is an honor.
The presidential system equals federalism. Why have our soldiers been martyred? They've been martyred just so that there will be no federalism, that there will be no separation for Turkey. And you now say, "Let us switch to a presidential system and make our country the United States of Turkey." Why have we given ten thousands of martyrs then? That would not be fitting, either to our martyrs and to the respect for the Turkish Nation.
There are headlines in the media saying “The crying has resounded everywhere, families are miserable, etc." Does that suit us as Muslims? There are no such cries at the funerals of the PKK militants. On the contrary, they walk about with their heads held high, they promise revenge, they shout out slogans. Albeit unwittingly, reports about crying at the funerals serve as propaganda for the PKK.
May God give strength and power to our soldiers and protect them from treacherous bullets. May God give them grandeur. May He close the foresight of their enemies and put fear in their hearts. May God deem our soldiers victorious and wrap them with radiance. May God guide them all to His True path. And when they are martyred, may God bless their martyrdom.
When sending off a martyr they should do so with their own uniforms that they were martyred in, with their bloody uniforms without putting them into a coffin, out in the open. They should put them on a Turkish flag with their clothes drenched in blood and walk their blessed bodies around in the city, making the place resound with salawats, saying Allahu Akbar. That tension which will be formed would turn into an inconceivable power. The spiritual power it will provide would make the whole world quiver, let me tell you that much. Everyone would come to their senses.
We have taken this land with blood, with the blood of hundreds of thousands of martyrs. Now this handful of impertinent scum say 'We are going to take this land.' Well, they can do that only if they martyr all 80 million of our people. Only then our homeland could be theirs. Other than that they cannot take away our land.
May Almighty God give strength to the families of our martyrs to appear as well mannered, brave soldier families who put their trust in God. They should strictly avoid appearing sad and sorrowful. The PKK wants these to appear in the media. That is the reason why they organize all those explosions. Or else it is not possible to subvert 80 million people with the martyrdom of 15 people. But they see it as vital for the propaganda of the organization. The cries of the families, their fainting and throwing themselves on the coffins are the propaganda materials the PKK regards as crucial.
Especially while bidding farewell to our martyrs, displaying their families crying, throwing themselves on the coffins, bellowing, fainting is what the PKK wants. Or else, if we were to hold the funerals of our martyrs with salawats by saying Allahu Akbar, that would not serve the purposes of the PKK and would be the most galling thing of all for the PKK.
Let us spoil the plans of the PKK; I mean, let us clear away their plots to gain strength using our martyrs. For instance if you walk the martyr for hours around the city with salawats, making the place resound, that would not serve the purposes of the PKK. That is because it would create an enormous spiritual tension and everyone would side with the martyrs.
