A bigot is someone like a crazy person. Not “like a crazy person”, he is utterly crazy. Indeed a bigot does not believe; that is to say, he is faithless. And it is not evident why they become bigots. It is a miracle. Although they do not believe in and practice the provisions they fabricate themselves, they advise it to others.
When Mahdi (pbuh) appears, people assume that bigot mindset, fanatic mindset would appear a hundred times harsher than before. Actually the bigot mindset will disappear a hundred times more profoundly than before when the Mahdi (pbuh) appears. Democracy will come, love will come, peace will come, economic welfare will come and so will justice.
Islam would not prevail without love, with an understanding far removed from aesthetics, with a ragged, shabby and pathetic appearance in an introverted world where there is no music, no art, no democracy, no enthusiasm, no excitement. Allah wouldn't deem such a horrible system an obligation on us. People invent such horrible systems, such atrocious systems on their own.
Bigoted people are mostly very obtuse and very dull. The children of many bigoted people live a modern life. For instance their daughters mostly do not cover their hair. Many of them do not have any religious friends. That stems from a reaction against lack of quality. Actually had they seen high quality people around them, they wouldn't engage in such an abnormal behavior.
Qur'an is a very plain and pure Book. The commands of Allah are very plain and quite simple. Complicating life is not religion. I mean propagating an environment in which people are in dirty clothes, eating filthy food, living in a filthy, listless environment with dirty looking women and men; no music, no paintings, no arts, no science, no aesthetics in an ugly rotten structure; with slanders and revilements constantly in their language and feeling hatred towards everyone. Such a religion is not acceptable. This has nothing to do with religion.
Religion is a magnificent structure in which welfare, love, beauty, peace, goodness, forgiveness, democracy, freedom of thought and the most sophisticated, most beautiful aspects of arts and science are displayed. Some people ensnarl religion and alienate people from religion unnecessarily. That is the way they serve the antichrist (dajjal).
What does the bigoted mindset do to make people alienate from religion? They complicate the religion. That is a very sly plot of the satan. When they complicate the religion even though it is really very easy, people start thinking that religion cannot be practiced and give up. Actually living by religion is really easy.
Bigoted people demand a rude, aggressive, loveless, egoistic, selfish, jealous, filthy and ugly model for women; one that hates everyone. And that is a very repulsive model. No one would come near to such people. May Allah forbid, in such an environment, under such conditions Islam would not prevail.
The prayers (salat) should be performed immaculately just like it is described in the Qur'an with great sincerity. There is nothing complex. You perform your prayers joyfully, lovingly and peacefully. Trying to complicate the prayers is a satanic behavior. Satan attempts to turn it into something complicated so that people abandon their prayers.
Bigots develop a specific style of the classical right wing amongst themselves. They do not understand anything from aesthetics. They do not have an understanding of arts and quality. Their understanding of clothing, for instance, their understanding of foreign policy is all the same with each other. They only have one point of view and never a second one. Their such point of view is like a fixed idea in their heads.
You read the Qur'an to the bigot; he does not accept. You read it to a Darwinist, he does not accept. Why? Allah explains it to us; "We place an obscuring veil between you and those who do not believe in the Hereafter" [Surat al-Isra'; 45]. Such people do not live in their first ego, they live in their alter egos. They live a different life. That is unique, they have been created specifically by Allah. Consequently they do not understand what you are explaining to them.
Our origin is Islam, the Qur'an. Only in that Allah brings about richness. Only in that Allah brings about peace. Otherwise, haven't you seen the misery of the World? Was it not ruined with wild capitalism? Was it not ruined with communism? Was it not ruined with fascism? You have all tasted it. The World was ruined in bigotry as well.
The minds of unhappy people become damaged. Faithlessness leads to unhappiness, unhappiness leads to faithlessness. This is an interlocked system. Unhappiness attracts faithlessness. Actually Allah wants Muslims to be happy. Allah approves happiness. Bigots on the other hand constantly encourage crying
There are still some bigoted people among Muslims who are prone to violence and bloodshed. Bigotry is supported everywhere in the world; and they are setting traps for sincere, real Muslims. An attitude is assumed against the system of the Mahdi. And the beauty of the system of the Mahdi is in its victory in the face of these difficulties.
People with almond shaped moustaches who do not understand anything from art or aesthetics, people who wouldn’t say boo to a goose, people with glassy eyes… such a youth is not acceptable. Youth should be alive and well, they should bring joy to everywhere. With their laughter, with their smiles, with their talks, with their joy; there should be harmony in their eyes, they should present such a wealth and beauty of soul.
If religion is under the control of reasonable, sincere, progressive beautiful people who act on love and compassion- and that is the stage we are in anyway- the world would be saved. We need to take over religion from radicals as soon as possible. Religion belongs to good people, not to bigots and radicals. Radicals are simply using religion.
If one believes in the sufficiency of the Qur'an, radicalism would disappear; that scourge would disappear. The whole issue lies with believing in the sufficiency of the Qur'an. If you accept the sufficiency of the Qur'an, you would also feel love for Alevis, for Shias and for Wahhabis as well. You would then hold both ladies with scarves and also ladies who do not cover their heads and those who wear low-neck dresses in high esteem and respect all of them, love all of them. You would not make them uncomfortable.
A radical understanding of Islam is not acceptable. Such an understanding of Islam would never be accepted anywhere in the world. The world cannot live in peace in radicalism, you cannot live comfortably. People can only be comfortable in a life compliant with the Qur'an, in a life compliant with Islam in the Qur'an.
In Egypt, there are faithful Muslims on one side and again Muslims who have faith yet abstain from bigotry on the other side. Mahdi (pbuh) is the one who will unite the two sides. That is because the system of the Mahdi puts forth a modern, loving, peaceful, beautiful understanding of Islam. The system of the Mahdi represents an individual, a belief that puts forth a system that both sides would accept.
God will give relief and comfort to people if they completely abide by the Qur'an, God will give them comfort. Yet they fail to put their trust in the Qur'an. They cannot put their trust in God's Book. Trust. If they were to abide by the Qur'an, all these matters would be resolved. Leave fanaticism, leave superstitions aside.
Radicalism is a system that produces bountiful excuses that could destroy religion. Its very existence is a monumental movement against religion. I mean even if a radical doesn't do anything but simply walks about the streets; his talking rubbish 3-5 times, saying his usual inappropriate statements would suffice. Only by doing those, he would be carrying out monumental irreligiousness propaganda.
There will be no happiness in a system where there is no democracy, where women are not living in comfort, where they are living under pressure. A system in which everything is forbidden and in which death sentence is given for almost anything is definitely not Islam. This is a fascist, a merciless and psychopathic mindset that has nothing to do with Islam.
Traditional, radical understanding of Islam will not be accepted anywhere in the world. Neither Europe, nor US would ever accept that, Muslims would not accept it either. It is not reasonable to impose radicalism. Whole world would accept Islam in the sense of the system of the Mahdi, in the sense of Islam as lived in the time of the companions of our Prophet(saas). The understanding of Islam as we explain, as we display, would be embraced by the whole world.
There is danger of radicalism. This danger has enwrapped the whole Islamic world. It has ruined the Islamic World. What is the reason of the coup in Egypt? It is radicalism. What is the reason for Muslims decimating each other in Syria? It is radicalism. What is the reason for the pain Muslims are suffering in Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria? It is radicalism. Radicalism is the reason in the root of the pain in Libya.
No one would ever come close to Islam as it is misrepresented by the radicals. If Islam is preached in the way radicals rule, there will be an enormous animosity against Islam in the world. But if it is preached in its original form, as it is in the system of the Mahdi, the whole world would instantly accept it. Even communists would very willingly accept Islam. That is because there is freedom, tenderness, aesthetics, beauty and democracy in Islam.
The Islamic Union is developing rapidly; the spirit of the system of the Mahdi is developing rapidly. The morality of the Qur'an is developing rapidly in the world; radicalism is being wiped out. The beauties that we've been asking from Almighty God will be brought on the whole world and we see that from the portents.
No country in which radicalism rules can survive. Radicalism is the system of the antichrist (dajjal). Once radicalism infiltrates, everything would be ruined. And radicalism is like a drug. Once it starts from a point, it gradually drags the whole society into that trouble. For that reason we need to prevent radicalism right from the onset.
The most important sustenance in the world is love that stems from faith. Without it everything is over. Build as much bridges as you like, build as much roads, buildings as you like, it has no importance. For instance New York is an amazingly wealthy city but there are people committing suicide every single day. There are people committing suicide every other place in the world, people are using drugs.
The vast majority of the Turkish people are Ataturkist, intellectual people who have progressive thoughts, who like freedoms, who understand Islam as it was in the time of the Companions, people who advocate modern Islam. All our youth are modern. Consequently it would not be possible to enforce bigoted, fanatical understanding of Islam in Turkey.
They should forget about a radical system in the system of the Mahdi. They should forget about a bigoted system. They should not expect any good from such troubles and such scourges. Of course there is goodness in everything, but that is a whole other issue; those who expect to attain beauty should melt inside the spirit of the system of the Mahdi. Anything other than that would not work.
Islamophobia is formed because of radicalism. That is the doing of bigots. Without the system of the Mahdi, bigots would have erased Islam from the face of this world. The system of the Mahdi is the reason why Islam remained in this world. The system of the Mahdi is the reason why they fail to disintegrate Turkey. Or else, they were planning to raze Turkey to the ground.
Have a look at radicals; God stripped them of all blessings. I consider people in need free of that, but radicals are those who live a life of great misery. I mean one might be poor but still keep himself clean, well-cared for and beautiful. But how do we see the deprivation of all God's blessings in radicals because of their radicalism? We see that in their dirty and repugnant ugliness.
Bigotry, fanaticism is such a scourge on humanity. Fanaticism and misinterpretation of the Qur'an is what lies at the root of the troubles the whole Islamic world is now suffering from. They make havoc. These all stem from the conservative Orthodox understanding of Islam. There is such a scourge upon the world and Mahdi (pbuh) is the one who will save us all from this scourge.
There is no sense of aesthetics and quality in a radical; he wouldn't understand those concepts anyway. A beautiful painting wouldn't have any impact on him, a beautiful statue, a beautiful melody wouldn't have any impact on him. This is not valid for all of them of course, but for a great many of them.
Radicalism is very dangerous. But religious people are beautific. You can be sure of them in all respects, that is very nice. They fear God, they love God, they do not tell lies, they do not play tricks, they do not act disloyal, they never act against their conscience, they never act cruel. How nice! Anything other than this would be very dangerous.
There is no love in the way radicals talk; there is no mercy, no compassion, no friendship. There is no notion of unity and integrity. These are all against the Mahdi; they are all anti-Jesus Messiah. They all defer to communism and Darwinism. They defer to the PKK as well; in fact they are really very cowardly.
Radicals are different than Muslims. Those who ascribe partners to God and those Muslims who don’t are different. I am criticizing those who ascribe partners to God. I am criticizing those who became idolaters without being aware of it. I am criticizing the radicals. The ones who abide by the Qur’an are called Muslims.
ALLAH DOES NOT WANT A TURKISH ISLAMIC UNION IN THE FORM OF BIGOTRY. That is, if it had been possible, it would have happened a hundred years ago. Allah does not accept that. That is why, Allah constantly sealed off its way; for a hundred years, He closed its way. The Turkish Islamic Union will come about in this century.
BIGOTRY, AS AN EVIL SYSTEM, IS SOMETHING THAT SHOULD BE AVOIDED AT LEAST AS MUCH AS IRRELIGIOUSNESS. SO IRRELIGIOUSNESS AND BIGOTRY ARE THE TWO HORNS OF THE DAJJAL (ANTI-MESSIAH). I have said this before as well. Both Are Grave Dangers. Both makes people unhappy, both derange the mental balance, the spiritual balance, both derange the social balance. Both drive the society mad.
Allah uses me as is instrument when it comes to giving love of Allah for women who uncover their heads. A very bright and high quality younger generation is growing up. Religious books are banned in many countries. But my books are not banned because I AM VERY POSITIVE AND DISPLAY AFFECTION. I APPROACH MATTERS WITH SCIENCE AND LEARNING, AND AM STRONGLY OPPOSED TO BIGOTRY. I WANT THE CLIMATE THAT PREVAILED IN THE TIME OF THE COMPANIONS OF OUR PROPHET (SAAS).
Do they not see what bigotry leads to? That the reason for this awful state of the world is bigotry? They are trying to get rid of germs and microbes. BUT BIGOTS AND BIGOTRY WILL NOT DISAPPEAR. YOU NEED DISINFECTANT FOR THAT. A vibrant youth will emerge, and they will establish Turkish-Islamic Union. All brains will be free of germs.
I am stating clearly that, Islam will prevail all around the world and those who are expecting bigotry will see a very modern and quality way of life. The Age of Bliss and bigotry are totally different. Furthermore, atheists and communists will say “if we knew it would be like this, we would have supported it with all our hearts”.
BIGOTS ARE ESSENTIALLY IRRELIGIOUS. They have no Allah, Book, faith or religion. But they try to portray themselves as really devout. Those opposed to bigotry mistakenly attack the faith. They make matters worse. THEY SHOULD EMBRACE ISLAM AND THE QUR’AN TO OPPOSE BIGOTRY. If you want liberty and beauty you must embrace the source of these, THE QUR’AN.
In the period of Hazrat Mahdi (as); like the collapse of Darwinism and materialism, bigotry and obscurantism will be wiped out. The system of the Mahdi will sweep over obscurantism so much so that it will never come out again. But just after the period of the Mahdi (as) time, communism will rise from the grave again; though [the terror of] the doomsday will break out over those [communists]. That form of communism will be a much more corrupt and bloodier form.
According to the radical mindset, religion is a faith for the grave; it is a religion where death and darkness is experienced. In irreligiousness, there is music, there are paintings, there is fun, there is dance and there is life. In religion – according to their mindset- there is no music, no life, no fun. It is like they are buried alive. Everything is unlawful according to their mindset, everything is forbidden and there is no life! It is like the life of a man buried under asphalt.
The bigots say that Islam is the religion of the grave. You live under the soil, you live in darkness in their world. And they say, “There is radiance in their world, there is light, there is music and there is art. There is life in their world, there is dance; such a religion is unacceptable. Religion is lived under the soil, it is lived through with torture. You live in blood and pus and that is what religion is,” they say. And some naive people believe in this. They thus surrender to satan unknowingly. We are spoiling this game and we will continue to do so!
Islam prevails everywhere. One can mention the Name of God while having fun or in a wedding. There is no such thing as saying one cannot talk about God in a place of entertainment. This is the result of a mindset that tries to spread irreligiousness presenting it as if it is something in demand. That is because people are very fond of music and entertainment. These people say “Do not talk about God when there is music and entertainment. Simply keep quiet.” Irreligiousness is the result of such a mentality.
We will enter the European Union in the time of the Mahdi. That radicalism will then be erased and people would not consider music as unlawful and will be respectful towards women wearing revealing clothes. Statues, paintings, music; these are all beauties. If you create a mass of people who are against all these, Europe would not want to take you in.
If you regard arts as unsavory, if you despise music, painting, sculpture and architecture, if you attempt to run away from a house with paintings, if you say "dogs are evil, you should chase off them when you see them," such a country would never advance. The reason why Europe advanced is because they are open to arts and science.
Bediuzzaman advanced religion, the truth of religion in Turkey and Turkey cleaned itself of radicalism. The beauty of today's Turkey belongs to these two individuals; first to Ataturk and second to Bediuzzaman. As a result of hidden knowledge, these two appear to be opposing each other. Not everyone can understand this. Their appearing as opposed to one another is the way of the hidden knowledge.
Life is very difficult, that is how God created. If you put radicalism on top of this like a hump on the back, saying that one should not laugh, one should not go out to streets, one should not talk on the phone, it would ruin society; there would not be one happy person left. One would lose his sanity, one's mind would stop working and one would become unable to do anything, unable to produce anything and would ruin all his artistic capability. I mean it is not possible to attain anything with the traditionalist orthodox understanding of Islam. People would be ruined.
In the traditionalist, orthodox understanding of Islam, the world has turned into a grave; everywhere is a place of torture. The "a cardigan and a bite of food" mentality is the other name of misery. Pain and suffering is considered as a foundation. It is forbidden to laugh, it is forbidden to be joyous; music, paintings, television, everything beautiful is forbidden. All those things that are beautiful, all the beauties that one can think of are forbidden. Only hatred, rage and anger are allowed.
Chopping people up, cutting their heads off and holding those heads in their hands, leaving everywhere in blood, in cries and groans, hunger, unaesthetic, ugly images, depravation; this is the dreadfulness in which a great many portion of the believers of the orthodox understanding of Islam live in.
Women are ruined in the traditionalist orthodox understanding of Islam. They can neither have the freedom to dress up, nor to laugh, or to sit properly or to walk about as they like. Even their eating as they wish is an offense. They [the radicals] say, "If you let them eat a lot, they would go rampant and cause you troubles. If you let them wear beautiful clothes they would attempt to go out to the streets to show off."
The radicals are created as the enemy of the system of the Mahdi. As a matter of fact, their animosity is a special system created to elevate the rank of the system of the Mahdi. Radicals are the people of hell created to elevate the rank of the system of the Mahdi. God elevates the rank of the Mahdi (pbuh) with those people of the hell.
Radicals have laid such a heavy burden on Muslims; so much so that they have driven Muslims almost mad. They are unable to turn right or left, it is forbidden to laugh, it is forbidden to talk to women. God wants us to laugh; He wants us to be joyous. Why do you hurt them in vain? They are inventing prohibitions on their own. Laugh; laugh as ever you like, wander around as ever you like, put up the pictures you like at your home, put up statues, let young girls put on make up as ever they like, let them be well-groomed; let young men dance and have fun. These are all lawful and permitted according to the Qur'an.
All malice, all persecution, all murders are perpetrated by those who do not fear God. Communists, Darwinists, materialists, those who do not believe in God, those who would not fear God. They all emerge from among those who do not fear God. For instance, radicals behave viciously because they do not fear God.
The whole of the Ottoman army were Bektashis. Most of the Ottoman Sultans were Bektashis as well. Humanity, love, beauty and profundity prevail in the spirit of Bektashism and Alevism. They know nothing about egocentricity. They know nothing about peevishness. Radicals, on the other hand, have formidable egocentricity; most of them are in grave depravity.
Traditionalist, orthodox Islam is not livable. It is incomprehensibly difficult. You cannot listen to music, you cannot look at pictures, ladies cannot wear beautiful, clean dresses, they cannot be well kept, they cannot be elegant, they cannot dye their hair, they cannot pluck their eyebrows, they cannot beautify themselves.
Radicals consider the commands of God in the Book He sent as insufficient. For instance, salat (prayers) is explained in the Qur'an yet they see it as insufficient and try to add things to it. Fasting for instance; they look at the Qur'an and see it as insufficient. They try to add things to it. They try to add things to every other religious act. But if there is something that is in conflict with their own interests, then they try to subtract things from those commands. They say, "This verse has been nullified, the command of this verse has been lifted".
Satan complicates religion and people thus keep aloof from religion. They transformed Islam into the most terrifying religion in the world right now. They misrepresent it as a system that kills all life, that removes all aesthetics, all the beautiful aspects of life, as a system that demands terror, that demands bloodshed and that ruins life. The fact is however, Almighty God says, " God desires ease for you; He does not desire difficulty for you." And He says " God has selected you and not placed any constraint upon you in the religion —as in the religion of your forefather Abraham."
With radicalism, they have stigmatized Islam throughout the whole world. They want to extinguish the sun of Islam. Hanging people, chopping the up, beating and degrading women, calling them half-people, demanding no music, no pictures, no art, no goodness, no beauty, no affection, no nothing. Are you all mad? It is as if they have a longing for Hell. There is no such thing in Islam.
God wants the world to be beautiful and decorated. He adorns the world gloriously. Radicals, on the other hand, want a dark world. Do not attempt to destroy the adornments created by God, do not try to dispel the adornments created by God. You should be trying to present the adornments created by God in the most beautiful manner.
Radicals have always been obsessed about the marriages of our Prophet (saas), his love for women. They never want to recite or talk about the verses related with that subject. They merely want to gloss over that subject completely. For instance, they do not want to talk about the fact that there are women in the Heaven.
Radicals are the ones who have presented Islam as if -may God forbid- it is trouble for the whole world, as if it demands a life like that of Hell and they have ruined many Muslims. They have had Muslims choked, they have had Muslims choked in Iraq, in Syria and in Libya. They have had them crushed all over the world.
Radicals had Muslims decimate one another. One party kills the others and vice versa. They took pride in that. "Today we have killed two hundred Shias, praise be to God," they say. The others say, "We have killed three hundred Sunnis today, praise be to God. We have bombed them." This radical understanding of Islam brought about this disaster.
Radicals believe that they are the most devout ones when they turn the life of this world into a life in Hell, when they misrepresent Islam as hellish. For instance, they believe that it is out of piousness when they turn praying into an inextricable act. They believe that it is out of piousness when they make it impossible to perform ablution, whereas God described performing ablution in a single line in the Qur'an.
The people of Azerbaijan are very dear to us. They are very decent, very well mannered people. They have never been degenerated. They have never been corrupted; they have always remained noble. Mr. Ilham Aliyev has indeed displayed a very rational attitude and never opened the door to radicalism. He has opened the door to real Islam, but closed the door to radicalism.
Islam is a religion that could be widespread in a very short period of time, one that the whole world would love. Islam is not spread because of the repulsiveness of radical men and women; they never talk about love. They have sinister faces. They know nothing about arts, about beauty, about aesthetics. However, what God wants is simple: He says, "Live in this world with peace, full of love, being friendly and brotherly, worshiping Me and loving Me, being careful about what is lawful and what is unlawful so that I will give you plentitude and abundance."
The lovelessness of radicals, their misogyny is incomprehensible. Once you take women on, you would be taking on half of the world. That is because women are mothers. You would thus be taking on half of the world and mothers. When that is the case, Islam would completely fall from power in the world, just like it is right now.
We talk to them reciting verses and say, "That is what God says in the Qur'an". They reply saying, "This is not what the hodjas we know are saying." Why do you not trust the Qur'an? You do not trust the Book of God. They insistently search for the religion of their forefathers in the Qur'an. They refuse anything else if they cannot find it in the Qur'an. The fact is, however, religion is learned directly from the Qur'an, not from forefathers.
Islam cannot be preached with the traditionalist Orthodox understanding of Islam. They put impertinent men on television and they talk about their own superstitions with the mindset of the 1930's and 1940's – I exonerate religion related topics. Such people can only address their own peer group with their mindset. The youth, on the other hand, watch these people with astonishment and repulsion. Actually neither their culture, nor their knowledge is suitable to communicate religion.
Radicals are about to wipe the beautiful religion of Islam off the face of this world, because of the religion of their ancestors. They have ruined Muslims as well. Everywhere around the world people are being cut up, beaten, abused, insulted and spit upon. Some behead others, some drag others on the ground behind moving cars, they riddle others with bullets, they throw barrel bombs at them. There is an inconceivable system of persecution. These will all come to an end if and when they turn towards the Qur'an.
Radicals prohibit everything beautiful. They preach everything that is atrocious, everything that is difficult. Their encouragement about crying is unbelievable. God refers to it as a characteristic of unbelievers. "They will cry a lot and you will laugh," God says to Muslims. And they turn everything around and tell Muslims "Do not laugh, cry a lot!" How could one's mind and soul endure this? Go do sports, eat, drink, laugh, perform your religious observances, beautify everywhere. Let the arts prevail everywhere.
The greatest trouble of bigots is jealousy and envy. Right now, in the End Times, the reason behind this great corruption is jealousy towards the Mahdi (pbuh). Appearances of false Mahdis, their clashing with each other, their trying to forcefully declare people who do not claim to be the Mahdi as the Mahdi are all manifestations of this jealousy.
Radicals assume that talking in an all-knowing manner would disseminate Islam. Islam would never be disseminated in this manner. People would like to see your sincere love. They would want to see your clean-cut clothes, your cleanliness, your liveliness, your effort to beautify life. These things show Islam applied in practice. When they see them, they embrace Islam as you tell them.
God creates easiness for us and deems us successful in easiness. Those who look for difficulty are ruined; they are defeated, they are crushed. All those looking for traditionalist Islam, for orthodox Islam, are crushed. Who needs that; why would you change the immaculately radiant religion of God? Why do you raise difficulties while God has created religion of ease? How nice it is, live joyfully.
When you abide by the easy religion of God, when you abide by Islam that is natural, pure belief, the religion of Mohammed (saas), you go to Heaven. But in the religion you make difficult with superstitions, in the religion you rarified and made impossible to live by, you go to Hell. Both your world and your Hereafter will be Hell. Why are you looking for such trouble?
I keep saying this insistently; had they advocated the modern understanding of Islam in Egypt, the whole of Europe and the US would have supported them. The whole world would love them, recognizing them as an amazing power as well. One should perform prayers, fast, give alms, make pilgrimage yet they should simply be modern. They resist this.
The world would never accept an understanding of Islam that is incompatible with human nature. First and foremost, God would not accept it: Every time they attempt to bring about such a corrupt, rotten, filthy understanding of religion that reminds one of Hell, God would degrade them, humiliate them, drag them on the ground and ruin them; let me state this openly. They should forget about it.
Islam will appear in the face of this world as an utterly modern, joyous, healthy system, open to science and arts, open to beauty and aesthetics. It will appear like Heaven. Islam will not be an environment full of filth and darkness, causing people to suffer, hanging people, chopping people up, far removed from aesthetics; it will not be an environment in which filthy people are living. God would not harm Islam like that and will not let Muslims harm Islam like that.
Once you get dragged into the swamp of traditionalism it is like a bottomless pit which contaminates you more and more. Radicalism is an affliction that increases incrementally. One says, "I am a radical." The other says, "I am even more radical." They wallow into the most inconceivable filth in competing one another .
Radicals have no say in defeating Darwinism, which is the greatest movement of the antichrist of all times. There is no effort that scientifically defeats this movement of the antichrist, other than ours. There is no one else who preaches the message of God in this way, other than us. There might be some efforts here and there, but all of them remain weak when compared to ours.
They are trying to alienate people from religion. For instance they say, 'There is no music in religion.' People then take a dislike towards religion. What else? They say, 'There are no paintings in religion.' Laughing? They claim that it is unlawful as well. Well then my brother, are you trying to make people insane? According to their twisted minds, young girls are unable to put on makeup, they are unable to be sleek. Set them free, let them have fun and be beautiful. Instead, they are presenting a hellish life in the name of religion.
Some people keep asking, "Why didn't the moral values of Islam prevail?" You are presenting a hellish life to people in the name of Islam. The fact is that Islam means love, beauty, joy, happiness, pleasantness, honesty and cleanliness. So what are you doing? You are merely presenting them a hellish life. You forbade everything and you do that claiming that you are acting in the name of God. Do those limits you force onto people have any place in the Qur'an? No, they don't. You are simply cooking all those up yourself.
Hatred towards radicals is also tactless. They have been brought up like this, they are sincerely bigoted, they do not act in a bigoted manner out of spite. They believe that radicalism is how religion is put into practice the best. I mean they imagine that they are acting in line with Islam by making life miserable for themselves, by turning the world into a living hell. They have the wrong information, so you have to teach them the truth with kindness.
Art ennobles the human soul, it beautifies people and is the urgent nutrient of human soul. Europe has realized this and put that into practice very early on. They have attained very nice results in the end. Radicals, on the other hand, have dealt one of the biggest blows by estranging the Islamic world from the arts.
Our conservative Orthodox Muslim brothers assume that the Mahdi will come and see that the current radicalism as something very light and say, "What kind of bigotry is that? I will do a hundred times more of it." They believe that the world will be plunged into a pitch black darkness after him. The fact is however that Hazrat Mahdi will solve radicalism from the roots once and for all.
Bigots are paralyzed when they see beauty. Their lives are all filthy. Their wives are awful; their food is awful; their homes, their speech, their mouths, their shoes are awful, everything they have is filthy. Because they are not used to high quality, beautiful people, they go into a shock when they see them and they cannot get over it.
Let us become the most modern country of the world. Let us have a really modern state structure. Let us put ladies first. Let us become the most advanced country in music, in arts and aesthetics. A bigoted, conservative appearance does not suit us. That is the reason why they want to annihilate Turkey, that is the reason why they are opening their doors to the PKK.
The traditional orthodox system is a disastrous and awful system and it causes hatred for Muslims all over the world. That hatred is increasing gradually and because of those traditional Orthodox people who call themselves Muslims, the extreme right is getting stronger in Europe. They are harming themselves and Islam in the process and they're also hurting all inoffensive people.
It is very important that Turkey has a European appearance. See that even the most conventionalist, most Orthodox ones want to go to Europe and like Europe. That means theirs is a way of life that is more suitable to human nature. There has to be arts, there have to be beautiful roads, beautiful buildings, beautiful people. Life should be beautiful. That is how human nature is. If what they have been saying was true, they would have gone to the Middle East, to Egypt, to Pakistan, to India or Iran. But they don't. Furthermore some of them hate it there, they don't want it in any shape or form.
There is no scale or limit to bigotry, it is like an avalanche; it starts small and then gets bigger, it advances and swallows people, it crushes people. That is what happened in Egypt, in Syria, in Libya. People who have a desire to kill others rise up. People who want to die and to kill rise up. In that respect it is highly dangerous.
In bigotry, homes lack quality, their cars lack quality, their streets lack quality. An incomprehensible degeneracy pervades around them. The quality of the clothes goes bad, the quality of paintings, food and everything goes bad and becomes blunt. Bigotry advocates this bluntness, this crassness and this lack of quality and that is a grave danger. We need to be very cautious against that.
In bigotry, misogyny steps in, animosity against women develops and the arts, science and aesthetics die out. The traditionalist Orthodox system prevails everywhere. After that the state and the nation collapses. This is the covert policy implemented by the deep state of the UK. We can overcome this policy with arts, science, aesthetics and by having an even higher quality than the Europeans.
There are bigots all around us; they should not be indulged. These people are the main representatives of the force that would drag the Turkish nation into ruin and they are not even aware of it. If they were left to their own devices they would bring devastation both onto themselves and to the Turkish nation. I am not referring to inoffensive bigots, but to those who actively advocate the bigoted mentality. The policy of the deep state of the UK is founded upon investing in those people.
Turkey will eventually become one of the most modern countries of the world. There will be no bigotry, there will be women in revealing clothes and also those covering themselves with chadors, our cities will be far more beautiful than Paris and London; Diyarbakır, Siirt and everywhere else will be amazingly beautiful. We have an astounding determination, strength, means and intellect. We will do all of these things.
The traditionalist orthodox system imagines that the more they exert pressure in the name of God, the more they move closer to God: Actually, in such an environment, not only do people not get closer to God but they drift further apart from God and religion and they also lose their mental stability.
It is important to approach Muslims with compassion, no matter what. Because if you choose to get angry with them instead, you’d have to cut ties with almost ninety per cent of them. For instance, you call ISIS terrorists, and while we are vehemently against their ways, most Muslims in Afghanistan, Pakistan and India share the same views as ISIS: It is because they were raised that way. That is why we should try to save them, approach them with compassion, instead of severing ties with them.
Those who say that life must be miserable and wretched with no art or joy are ruining the Islamic world. We will not allow them to ruin Turkey in that way. Why should we not have music, or dance? You must come to your senses. What is there about these things that is incompatible with the faith? What verses of the Qur’an are these acts disobey? What harm do they do anyone? Where do you get these ideas from?
If you give fanaticism an inch, it takes a mile. It is very dangerous. The state must adopt a determined policy to spread modern thinking, a modern state structure and a modern conception of art. In other words, one must live by a modern Islam. What does modern mean? Like in the time of the Companions.
