Blood is bound to be shed in Syria, in Iraq; ISIS is bound to appear. Those carrying black banners are bound to appear. One might say, “Why did this go wrong?” As a matter of fact, the secret servants assigned by God are organizing all these things. All these things are bound to happen. Eventually, we will all see that all these will be sorted out by the Mahdi and that Mahdi will be the one we least expected.
Actually the regime in Iran is a communist regime; they likely support the PKK. That is because Iran has very close ties with all communist countries. They appear to have an Islamic regime, but in truth they have a communist regime as a foundation. But to appear reasonable to the public they present themselves as Muslims. That is the say, the state is actually communist but the people are religious.
Iran should be compassionate. They should become a European society. We should be able to go to Iran fearlessly. All women are living there in fear. Why do you impose an obligation about headscarves? Let those who want to cover their heads cover them, and let those who do not want to cover them don’t.
What happened to their claim about the US defeating the Taliban? They were saying that they would easily defeat them with bombs. They were putting their trust in their technology. Do not put your trust on technology, put your trust in your love. Trust your compassion, your rationality, your faith, your knowledge. These people are all inoffensive wronged people, and you can very easily win them over.
If they attempt to break up Turkey, we would have their world collapse around them, the Last Day would come. We will not permit that, they should forget about it. May God damn those who participate in this project. May God damn those who participate in this plan. May God damn those who instigate this, may God rain down all sorts of scourges upon them. May God make troubles rain down upon them. We will not let this happen.
The roadmap Europe and the US wants is actually the roadmap Abdullah Ocalan demands- meaning the roadmap the PKK demands - and that is to separate a large piece of land in the southeast from Turkey and to give that land to the “PKK Communist- Stalinist” state and to assign Abdullah Ocalan as the president of that so-called state. This is the whole issue. This is what is meant by the “process”.
May God awaken our attention. May God grant us the blessing of concentrating on Him and directing our love solely to Him. May God strengthen our mind and make us perceive the proofs of God with our mind; may He strengthen our faith in a conscientious and sincere manner. Weakness in faith is very dangerous, may God forbid.
Ultimately man is a weak creature. He dies and is buried in a grave. When he loses a loved one, he loses himself, saying, “I am dying, I am burning inside out, I am all done!” What would you say to that beloved one in the grave? You would flee in fear when you see that body in the grave. Well then, Who is the One to be loved? God is. Who is the One Who shows you that image? God.
If you become fixated on the love of a person, it would be idolatry. You should love with the love of God. Even the songs are about separation. Why don’t you love as the manifestation of God? If you love as the manifestation of God, you would not feel the need for such songs. You would not feel all that pain.
Turkey should have a news agency that provides truthful information to the world. The goal of this news agency should only be correcting the misinformation that's out there. It should be an agency in serving as a radio, television and a newspaper. Correct Information Agency. It should correct the misinformation, both around the world and in Turkey.
Kurdish people are blessed people, they are very honorable and devout, they are decent kind people. When they talk about a Kurdish person, I feel sure that I will definitely come across a decent person. This is not in a stereotypical sense; they genuinely are decent, pious people. They are superior because of their piety. That is the reason why I love them.
ISIS will learn our love, our understanding of friendship and they will learn to preach the message of God without bloodshed, without even causing one person’s nose to bleed. We will be instrumental in this. Weapons will be demolished, a time will come and ISIS will accept this. And we will, insha’Allah, be instrumental in this under the leadership of the Mahdi (pbuh).
It is not acceptable to support ISIS; that is because they are trapped in idolatry. But many Muslims are also in idolatry. I cannot support their faith either. The Qur’an is enough according to my belief. They do not accept the fact that the Qur’an is enough. Consequently it is not possible for me to support such a belief.
The Kurdish nation, the Kurdish people, our Kurdish brothers are very devout people. Abdullah Ocalan on the other hand does not advocate a religious belief system. He advocates a Stalinist belief system. This is the worst humiliation possible for our Kurdish brothers and sisters. Telling a Kurdish brother of ours to “be a Stalinist” is like cursing that person.
The ISIS lot is sincere in their faith but they have a conventional Orthodox belief. I mean there is idolatry in their system. Chopping people, hanging them up, all written in those books and they practice what is written in those books. In order to correct this mistake all the world should decide and unite in the system of the Mahdi. Or else they would be striving in vain.
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.
If we had the means of the radio and television channels of Turkey and America under our command, we would very easily explain the invalidity of communism, terror and anarchy to the people of the whole region. All the coasts would then be cleared. Everyone would embrace one another and the issue would then be closed.
PYD-PJAK-PKK, they all are one; they all are the PKK. They have the same leader, they have the same party, they have the same management, they have the same technique, they are all the same, there is no difference between them. Their order and command structure is the same. They are all the illegal PKK organization’s people.
Idolatry brings ruin to people. It drags them into committing murders, killing people and even killing themselves, burning and destroying their surroundings. But once those people are saved from idolatry they become a radiant, luminous people. And that will be made possible by Imam Mahdi (pbuh), insha'Allah.
The best thing to be done against ISIS is to explain the truth with love, science and wisdom. That is because these people believe in God yet they are trapped in idolatry; this idolatry drags them into committing murder. They have been misinformed. If you correct that mistake, the whole issue would then be solved.
Abdullah Öcalan's being released from prison is not even a possibility for discussion. He should most definitely be kept in prison. His release would require –may God forbid- the release of all PKK militants. That would then give legality to the PKK and that in turn would make it legal for a state to be founded in the Southeast of Turkey.
They are trying to make it seem as if there is a multi-headed PKK, but that is a delusion, a fallacy. The PKK has always been led from one center. All they care for is to have Abdullah Öcalan released as soon as possible and to make him the president of the communist Kurdistan that they will found in the Southeast.
We proved that Ocalan and the PKK is Godless and Bookless with documents and all the region has become aware of this fact. They used to present themselves as folk heroes but then our Southeastern lions, our Kurdish brothers, hated those scum. And now they are all alone. They are cursed and humiliated everywhere. ISIS wiped them out. That is a God-sent scourge upon them.
There is no weariness in the language of love. There has to be determination in peace, in love. For instance, one talks about love for two years and then gets tired of doing so in the third year and gives up. He talks about peace for five years and then cannot keep on doing so in the sixth year: That is not acceptable. One has to advocate peace and love until the end of his life. That is a religious obligation.
If you feel love, first of all, love God and love those God loves and let that love be reflected in your life. It is not acceptable to say "I do love" without doing anything. You should carry the signs of a fervent faith. Then there would be no need for you to look for Zuleyha. God would send Zuleyha by your side.
God brings about abundance and plenitude to the country in which the person of End Times resides. Apart from that abundance that country is protected from scourges and grave disasters. Right now Turkey is enjoying material and spiritual abundance and plentitude of the system of the End Times. People should be aware of this fact.
The 40 years' life span of the PKK is completed. Our Prophet (saas) says in his hadiths; "The life of the antichrist is 40 years," he says. Because that lifespan has come to an end, God has given the command for the ruin of that lot. I mean it is Hazrat Khidr (pbuh) who executes that command. That is to say, when a command is given for the ruin of a group, we should know that Hazrat Khidr (pbuh) is the one who undertakes that command.
The life of the antichrist would last a maximum of 40 years, it cannot be any longer. But Islam remained standing for 1,400 years. Many antichrist movements have passed by ever since the time of our Prophet (saas), they have all remained in history. They have been many different antichrist movements and all have been perished. The PKK is also a movement of the system of the antichrist and it will be perished.
After the 2080's the fiercest Pharoahs and anti-christs will start enveloping the world. Such evil that would even startle the Pharoah, the antichrist, Nimrod. Every single one of them will be Nimrods on their own, they will all be anti-christs. The world will turn into Hell and it would become uninhabitable.
There are two opposite forces; one is the followers of the anti-christ, the other is the followers of the Mahdi (pbuh). The latter acts on love, compassion, mercy, reason, science, righteousness, honesty and sincerity. The followers of the anti-christ use painful paths such as violence, bloodshed, oppression, humiliation and lovelessness.
ISIS will always be respectful towards the Turkish army, towards the Turkish nation and eventually they will enter into the service of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). From that point on, no blood would be shed and neither would a sleeper be awakened. Not a single drop of blood would be shed, not even a single person's nose would bleed. You will see in the coming years that all I've been saying will come true. .
There is no violence in the Qur'an; the only condition war in which is considered acceptable in the Qur'an is defense. When a persecutor attacks, we defend ourselves. There is no persecution, no pressure in the Qur'an. You simply defend yourself when attacked by persecutors. The verse is explicit. God says; "There is no compulsion in religion." (Surat Al-Baqarah; 256) God also tells us to say; "O you disbelievers! You have your religion, I have my religion." ( Surat Al-Kafirun; 6) How do you come up with compulsion with these verses?
If you become a man of trouble, troubles rain down on you. If you become a man of bloodshed, that bloodshed falls upon you. Blood brings about blood, violence begets violence, death brings about death. Killing people treacherously is a characteristic of a PKK militant. Those who kill openly are now killing the ones who treacherously kill others.
Those looking for atrocities are worthy of atrocities. If you encourage persecution, if you encourage scourges and bloodshed, those scourges suffocate you. That bloodshed drowns you. If you had approached them with love, they would have come to you with love. You've asked for blood and are faced with blood.
We would help an injured person even if he is a PKK militant or an ISIS militant. It would be a grave immorality to leave an injured person on the ground, it would be persecution. Only the PKK would do something like that; they either leave their injured ones behind or shoot them in the head. A Muslim would never do something like that.
Some people do not believe in the fact that this is the end of the PKK. Persecution would never be everlasting. This is a fact set out by the verses of the Qur'an. I mean no persecuting system has ever been sustained long-term in history. They should have understood it from that. This is the law of God; every tyrant, every persecuting system is bound to be destroyed. Only the rightful systems remain standing.
A religious CHP will be successful. A religious CHP will be the ornament of Turkey. They should be sure that they would come to power with at least 70 percent of the votes. You are talking about Marx; you should also be talking about Bediuzzaman and Suleyman Hilmi Tunahan. Only then you would be successful. Anything other than that would not work.
ISIS is a group that would eventually pledge allegiance to Turkey and the Mahdi. Bringing them to submission would take at maximum half an hour. They would be very lenient, docile like lambs. Now they are monstrous but later on they will turn into lambs. God is the One Who makes them act like monsters and God will be the One Who will turn them into lambs.
ISIS would not assume an attitude against Turkey. It appears that they will most probably become a state. They would have a command in the whole region but it is not possible for them to constitute a threat to Turkey and Turkish people. They would then be destroyed. All of them would then be burned. They can never do that.
People are prone to love. If you show the least bit of love they would instantly run towards that side. If you approach them with brotherhood, if you call them to peace and friendship they would instantly accept that call. They feel down when both sides refuse to accept because of pride. However if one side were to say it loud they would all accept it. But you would have to be a little bit insistent.
Religion classes in the syllabus would not cause youngsters to become religious; they simply give them general knowledge. But if facts leading to faith were to be taught in religion classes, if the miracles of the Qur'an were to be taught, then we can say that a faithful, devout youth is being aimed at.
Being a communist is not an offense but being a terrorist, anarchist, ferocious organization is an offense. Otherwise if it were to remain on the intellectual level, be a communist, defend any other ideology you like we would not be concerned by any of them. You can be an atheist, you can be a communist, but if you attempt to employ violence and terror, we would be standing against you. We would not let you do that.
What should be done against ISIS is to engage in an intellectual struggle. If you attempt to respond them with communism, if you attempt to stand against the ideology of ISIS with a Godless, Bookless, irreligious, faithless ideology, they would rout you; but if you respond to them with Islam, with the Qur'an and if you criticize the system of idolatry while doing so, you would then be successful anyway.
Jihad: "Jahd" means striving. These people, however, understand jihad as chopping people up. Instead of chopping up that person, would it not be better if you try to persuade that person, if you persuade that person with your ideas? When you chop that person up you would be annihilating that person, he would not have the opportunity to be a Muslim! Yet if you preach religion, if you tell them about God, they would come to believe.
It is not possible to become a universal state in any way other than the way of the Mahdi. That is because in the system of the Mahdi, there is love, peace, brotherhood and all these concepts are enticing. Egoism, ambition, racism, religious discrimination have no place in it. There is quality, decency, kindness, beauty and cleanliness; there are all sorts of pleasantries. Anyone in the world who is called to something like that would accept it.
The main characteristic of Asia is that a lack of quality rules in Asia. Human life has no value in Asia. I am not saying this about everywhere in Asia, but in general they regard people as machines. Turkey's European, loving, modern way of faithful thinking, full of love for God, will put away this dreadfulness. We will be a role model for the whole world.
If you idolize the one you love, if you ascribe them as a partner to God - may God forbid-, if you assume that the one you love has an independent existence, God would take that person away from you. But if you see your loved one as a manifestation of God, God would not take away that manifestation from you. Separation is a punishment for idolizing the loved one.
Islam is an amazingly beautiful system. If the youth could learn about it properly, there would be not one person left in Turkey that wouldn't embrace Islam. Yet they fail to understand; they imagine that hanging people, chopping up them is acceptable in religion, that their freedoms will be seized, that they will not have fun, that there will be no place for music and art in their lives. Actually these are all lawful blessings. Religion is being wrongfully explained. There is no such system. The system of the idolaters brought all those in. There is no such system in Islam.
God would humiliate and degrade all those who attempt to play tricks –may God forbid- on God. If they attempt to present their false Mahdis against the Mahdi God chose, by belittling the Mahdi God chose, God would bring about thousands of scourges upon them. They would be defeated each and every time and they would fall into disgrace.
This world is not real, the Hereafter is because this world is a place of trial, it possesses the characteristics of both Heaven and Hell. But Muslims push aside those characteristics of Hell by using their wisdom. And because they thus bring forth the characteristics of Heaven, they appear as exquisite beings.
A person lacking quality is a grave scourge. First of all, they should underline high-quality thinking, high-quality opinions. High quality books are required for that. High quality works, high quality writings are required. If you attempt to educate people with loveless, hateful writings lacking quality, the outcome would be wild and crude people lacking quality.
Quality people cannot be brought up with ideas of no quality. Islam in the Qur'an is the high quality idea. That is not the understanding of Islam advocated by idolaters, it is not the orthodox traditional understanding of Islam. You cannot find quality there. An intense inferiority would come out of that.
Love should be espoused with determination and perseverance. Advocating fighting and conflict appears to be easy and reasonable to some people and they assume that espousing love is difficult, meaningless and impossible. Actually, they thus leave behind the easiest and the most beautiful way of life and dive into the most evil, most difficult and the cruelest of all choices.
We would not separate our Kurdish brothers and sisters in Turkey. The rooms inside a family home would not be seperated from each other with walls made of steel. We are a family; we would never separate from our brothers and sisters. If you attempt to separate us with walls made of steel we would tear down those walls. You should not long for those days in vain as we never let something like that happen.
Love provides beauty in every aspect. For instance, if a song is sung with love, if it is played with love, it gives an insatiable pleasure. I mean when you do something with love, it yields perfect results. If one talks with love, it can be listened to with an amazing joy. If one looks at another with love, it gives an amazing joy. Even when you show love to a flower, that flower becomes so beautiful and so sweet.
What the CHP should do is to adopt the warmth, beauty, colors and the wealth of the right wing and to advocate left wing's understanding of quality, aesthetics, freedom, democracy and science to the fullest. They should not leave any point that the left wing is not satisfied with, but they should also adopt all the beauties of the right wing.
It is dangerous to play with the sea. There are 100-150 meters depths. A pool should be one and a half meters deep and no more. The same holds true for the beaches. People should go out into sea for one and a half meters at the most. It should be easy to pull someone out of the sea simply by holding his hand. It should be forbidden to swim any further.
The PKK is bound to leave this impertinence. If they insist on going on like this, they should go whereever they like; there are plenty of empty lands down our borders. They can go and find a place for themselves to live. They should keep away from us. We are happy and in peace with our Kurdish sisters and brothers in Turkey.
The PKK would never, under no circumstances lay down their weapons. The PKK would disappear the moment they lay their weapons. The political parties that loll against the PKK- if any- would fade away. These people can only remain standing with weapons. Once they lose their weapons, they would be gone.
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.
The pure morality of the Anatolian people is the most beautiful model for the world. The pure, immaculate morality in Anatolia, their understanding of love, loyalty and brotherhood- that is to say, everything that could be defined as good morality- is the perfect role model for Germany, for Japan, for Europe, for everywhere else. It is a perfect role model for humanity. It is a model that the whole world would admire.
Women are very intricate beings, one needs to treat them very attentively. One should treat them as if they are made of veil; one needs to be very wise to be able to stroll inside that soul. It is almost impossible to approach a woman with an obtuse, weak mind: That is because they are very easily offended, very easily saddened and very easily take offense. I mean there is a need for a very sharp mind and a very sharp attention.
Almighty God, the Almighty Creator, conceals Himself. He opens the veil for those who love and closes that veil to those who look at things with heedlessness so that they cannot see. That is the same for the Mahdi (pbuh); God opens the veil on the Mahdi for those who love Him and does not let those who do not love Him see that person.
When the mind concentrates on the Truth, it feels like "Alice in Wonderland." The curtain will be lifted and we thus enter the joyous world of our Creator that would leave us in awe. That is such a world that there is no end to it; it is endless. And every detail takes our breath away. We gaze through an art of God to another, from one beauty to another.
The power of the Creator is breath taking but only for those who look with the light of faith. Those who look at things with heedlessness would only struggle with the pain of daily events. They only trouble their minds with trivial things like whether or not they could eat their meals, whether or not they could sleep, whether or not they could prosper as they like, whether or not they are winning the competition they have with this or that person. They always concentrate on idle things.
The PKK gets its strength from threats and violence. When this force is taken away, people would forget about the PKK. The people in the region would get on with their own lives. Normal political discourse would start and the PKK terrorist organization and the political thought allied with the PKK would rapidly fade away.
How beautiful is a loyal, allegiant person. There is no risk of that person's stabbing you in the back, no risk of him playing tricks on you, no risk of his being disloyal, no risk of him not being thankful for what he's given. Such a person would have no worldly ambitions, no worldly expectations; his entire goal would be the Hereafter.
If you completely abide by the Qur'an and love God as is due, if you submit your heart completely to God, if you turn into a man of love, if you burn with the love of God, God would bind and brace His manifestation on you; that manifestation would never leave you. God is the One Who takes that manifestation away from you. One might think that the manifestation leaves a person by them taking an individual decision but God is the One Who brings that blessing to you and He is the One Who takes that away from you.
The goal of Europe and America is to arm the PKK on the pretext of fighting against ISIS and then using it against Turkey, against our soldiers. If they attempt to annihilate Turkey, let me say that America and Europe would all be turned into a flat field. If you fight with Turkey, God would fight with you. If you attempt to bring about grief on Turkey, God would bring about grief on you.
A person who fears God would become very wise and would be very meticulous about what is religiously lawful and what is not and all his attitudes would be very proper and balanced. When one doesn't fear God, may God forbid, that instantly reflects on his behaviors. He starts to say whatever comes to his mind and acts however he likes. When one fears God however, he would act very selectively, very meticulously and very beautifully. A Muslim would keep away from being egotistical and selfish.
When one remains aloof from the Qur'an, the wisdom goes away, that person's attitudes become unwholesome, they no longer pay attention to what is religiously lawful and what is not and they become unstable. But if one abides by the Qur'an, his mind settles, his works go well, an abundance comes upon him, a radiance, a pleasantness, a blessing settles upon him. That is why holding on to the Qur'an tightly is very important.
Spirituality is the greatest problem of Turkey, it is spiritual development. The important step to take to ensure this is annihilating Darwinism and materialism through science and knowledge and explaining the miracles of the Qur'an and the facts leading to faith; this is the whole issue. Other than that, Turkey is already a developing country. What Turkey needs is a revolution of the mind, a revolution of the soul.
A person cannot have quality if he doesn't like his own culture. If he only likes foreign cultures, that would mean unmannerliness. That is the manner of a wanna-be. If you are unable to realize the beauty, depth and richness of your own culture, if you are unable to feel that quality and are unable to present it with quality, that means you are a wanna -be.
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.
The mindset that demands one to kill in order to live is very egotistical and cruel. There is no meaning to such a life; it is better not to live under such circumstances. If you are to live crudely and egotistically like that, you'd better not. Life is only meaningful if you are living as a human being, if you live as a Muslim. Conducting a crude life is not acceptable.
An intellectual, progressive CHP (Republican People's Party) that defends the modern understanding of Islam. A CHP that defends the Islamic Union. That is a convenience, a beauty that could be attained. This is the beautiful formula that would save the CHP. Islamic Union, a modern Islam. If these two prevail in the CHP, the CHP will become the leading party in a heartbeat.
Our people don't want to be glowered at. They want to be respected, loved and shown compassion; they would side with those who show them love and compassion. People would be scared of those who smart -mouth them, they would be uneasy around such people. They would be on pins and needles around those who look down on them.
Hypocrites pine for gaining power and honor in disbelief. But when they go join them, their profanity burns them out and devastates them. They dive into that profanity as they burn and they burn even further as they dive deeper into profanity. That constitutes a system that constantly competes with itself and it swallows them and devastates them until they end up in the middle of hell.
There is a rage in the hearts of some people towards people of faith. For instance, they behave perfectly respectful towards a profane person and speak in a very appraising fashion with them. But when they come across a Muslim they feel a strange, evil rage; that is an evil instinct one should seek refuge in God. But of course that is something in favor of a Muslim. It enables Muslims to attain good deeds every minute, every hour without doing anything.
What CHP (Republican People's Party) should do is to be very religious. They would come to power if they become religious. That is it. There is nothing complicated about that. They need to be modern religious people. If they do that, everyone would be proud of them. How could it be possible to do politics in 2014 with a leftist approach remnant from 1800's.
The good ones, the loving ones, those who look for love should unite and look for each other all over the world. We need to expedite this. Those who want terror, fear and anacrhy find each other and support one another everywhere. But most of those advocating love are unaware of this. People advocating love should be very well connected with each other and we need to make a serious effort for that.
Almighty God gave the feeling of being appreciated and liked even to the birds, the flowers, the bees, the bugs and all beings; they all love this feeling. God wants to be loved as well. God wants His creations to be appreciated and liked. Liking, loving and appreciating each other are God's wishes for Muslims.
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.
Love is a joy, it is a blessing, it is a pleasure, it is happiness. Still there are some people who give up love. Hatred is very distressing, it is painful. One would feel unbearable pains in hatred. What is the sense in this? Handle everything with love. Why is it necessary for you to be in conflict, why is it necessary for you to get in a fight?
Believing in God is what makes people happy the most, it is what beautifies them the most, it is what brings about plentitude and abundance, it is what brings about joy. It is the greatest beauty of Heaven for all eternity. Having faith in God is the greatest blessing of all, and so is love as a beauty having faith in God bestows upon us. This is the source of life; it is the cause of life.
There is so little time left for the Last Day. By the leave of God, it seems that it is necessary for both Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and Jesus Messiah (pbuh) to know about the Broken Letters. That is because there is no one else who could make use of them right now, they are the last ones that could make use of them.
Vacating a region when there is an attack is the wisest move. It means to retreat. It means immigrating. If there is a danger at the door, and if there is no immediate solution, one should immigrate. Immigration does not mean that one would not return to his home later on. Our Prophet (saas) immigrated as well, but he returned victoriously. The Companions immigrated and they too returned victoriously. Immigrating is a solution.
How could a loving person be stingy? He would of course be very generous and distribute all he has in the path of God. When a person loves, he becomes crazy for the love of God. He would only have eyes for the love of God and he would say, "What else would I do with all these materials things?" He searches and becomes madly in love with the love of God.
Mahdi (pbuh) is a man of love. He is not a stern, despotic, domineering person. He is a man living in his home. He is a man who functions as a supporting wall for the Islamic world constantly pointing out the importance of love. Mahdi (pbuh) will also not interfere with the government, he will not interfere in politics.
Religion can be practiced soundly by the beaches, in discos, practically everywhere. You can build a masjid inside a night club so that youngsters go there to perform their prayers and then come back and have fun. Ladies can swim in the sea at the beaches and then go perform their prayers as they like.
Nothing good comes out of mourning. Mourning is a very passive act; you simply cry and get sad or become low-spirited. Mourning is not the solution. Reconciling Israel and Palestine is a solution. Establishing connections with both parties is a solution. If you get angry with one party and avoid establishing connections with them you cannot maintain peace and security.
A country with a strong judicial system is a safe country; such a country is one in which people live comfortably. If the judicial system is on a shaky ground, the whole country will be on a shaky ground. The judicial system is in an awful state in the great majority of the Middle Eastern countries.
Women are being oppressed everywhere in the world and people are merely watching this oppression. With the system of the Mahdi this scourge will be removed. Mahdi (pbuh) will annihilate this scourge. The system in which women are held in high esteem, in which women enjoy utmost freedom, is the system of the Mahdi.
The greatest ideal of hypocrites is to pull away from Muslim, to revolt as soon as possible. That is because they need to take up a position. That is to say, to strike from a distance. But of course while doing so, they would not strike their first blow in a way that Muslims would understand. They try to do that in a way they wouldn't understand. And they have a tendency to depart by presenting themselves as Muslims.
Hypocrites talk nonsense. They do not want to talk about God; this is the characteristic of hypocrites. They burn inside when they talk about God. They always try and talk by giving examples. I mean they give examples from other people, they give examples from their environment. They always talk with examples. This is the main characteristic of hypocrites.
Hypocrites go into a trance with satan and receive information from him. Satan advices them, saying, "Do this, do that, do this evil act, do that immorality and create such and such conflict," when they are alone. Because the Name of God is recited when they are with Muslims, their concentration is disrupted.
A hypocrite would be determined to go to other hypocrites; they attract him like a magnet. Hypocrites burn inside when they are with Muslims. They feel a strong instinctive urge to go to other hypocrites. When they go with their side they take up a position there and that place becomes their hell. They start following Muslims from that position.
As the level of welfare increases, the number of those who patiently endure difficulties or those who endure pain decreases. Such an environment does not help the cultivation of art. Those who are brought up in poverty, those who endure pain and difficulties often perform art quite beautifully. God gives pain and ordeals for love to deepen. The more one endures difficulties, the more he knows love, the more he knows profundity.
Bediuzzaman says that broken letters are "codes for the pure servants of God." They are codes for some special people. When they want to attain certain information, I mean when they want to learn something, they access all kinds of special information by the help of those special codes. And those pure servants of God are Hazrat Khidr (pbuh) and his students, they are those special people. This is how the world is directed, insha'Allah.
The deep state of the world gathers every century. Every century, they see the course of history by looking at the hadiths, the Qur'an, the Torah and the Gospels and they do not resist the course of history. They do not resist destiny, they shape it accordingly. This is a secret of Freemasonry as well.
Imam Mahdi will be a leader supported by the whole world. Mahdi (pbuh) will not have an opponent. Who will make him accepted? God will make him accepted. God will reveal it to the hearts of people and people will be convinced about their allegiance to the Mahdi (pbuh) in a way that they wouldn't understand themselves. They will strangely understand that they love him. They will strangely start trusting him and believe that he will be the one saving them; they will believe that he will be the one instrumental in their salvation.
One should not emulate unbelief. There is no peace, no loyalty, no real friendship in the system of unbelief. The unbelievers would bring ruin or harm to you the minute they see a conflict of their interest, they would give you up the minute their interests end. You would then be living in a bitter world in which disloyalty runs rampant. The unbelievers could even act treacherous to you right when they wake up. You wouldn’t have a guarantee for two hours of peace. With unbelievers you might face a completely different personality in two hours.
Turkish Islamic Union equals Islamic Unity. We are calling it “Turkish-Islamic Union” in the sense that Turkey will be the leading force. Otherwise every race, every nation enjoys the same level of equality, they have the same precedence; no one has dominance over the other. The noblest among people in God´s Sight is the one who is most deeply conscious of Him.
A Muslim should improve themselves to such an extent that others would never say, “This one will do something treacherous.” I mean he should not give anyone reason to say, “He will do something treacherous somehow!” He should give such a reassurance; only then he can be a real Muslim. One should say, “It is impossible for him to do something treacherous!”
There is no reliability and soundness in disbelief. You talk to a man and then you see him go and do something atrocious. They act in perversion and do something stupid. They want to approach you only insofar as they see you may serve their interest. When they have no personal gain in being with you, they refrain from coming near you. Actually in Islam, there is the concept of one being a servant of God without asking for any personal gain. Muslims live by that and thus attain constant reliability and decency.
There is nothing good in disbelief. There is only perversion, filth, disloyalty, treachery, improper speech and intolerance in disbelief. You talk to a person and in two hours you see that he is acting treacherously. There is a sense of stability in Muslims. They are steady and reliable now and will be steady and reliable in two hours, in ten days, in a year, in twenty years, all for the good pleasure of God.
God is the One Who creates radiance; He is the One Who creates beauty. It would be quite funny if one starts praising himself thinking he is handsome. God manifests Himself in that person and shows that to him. They are merely watching that manifestation of God. One should say, “O Lord how wonderfully You have manifested Your beauty!” Instead of saying, “How beautiful I am!” he should say, “How beautifully You create!”
Our youth should definitely be given courses on “National Consciousness” by the Ministry of National Education. They should be taught about topics like; What is communism? How can we be protected from the communist ideology? How do Darwinism and materialism constitute the origin of communism? How could materialism cause the collapse of humanity? Without this course, terror is bound to happen.
Unbelievers might sometimes say that - May God forbid- “Muslims are acting in a gullible fashion”. Actually they [Muslims] are the wise ones; they are the ones doing the most reasonable. With faith auspiciousness comes to their lives, they become more beautiful inside and out. Even their organs rejoice in faith; people rejoice in faith inside and out. Their eyes, their gaze becomes meaningful; their expressions become meaningful; their mind, their foresight is opened with faith, their speech becomes beautiful.
The power of enjoying things would be taken away from those who forget God in a very short time. They start saying, “I cannot have fun as I used to. I do not enjoy music as much as I used to. Something happened to me.” A miracle happened and you should see that. They start saying, “I am fed up with all these things, and maybe that is why.” In fact one would never be fed up with love, with beauty but a scourge befalls such people. One should always seek refuge in God.
A great majority of people might be in a forgetful mindset regarding God; one should not see them as real and be affected by them. God might be showing those people to him in such a state. For instance, one might be going to a disco or a nightclub and people there might not even say one word about God. He should not say, “So this is how people are. This is how this world works. Is there something wrong with me?” He should know that he is on the right path and the others have gone astray.
One should improve himself even further, increase his knowledge, memorize the Qur’an. One should try and put every verse of the Qur’an into practice, enforce his patience, strengthen his will-power, strengthen his faith. One should widen and strengthen his submission to God and root the love of this world out of his heart. One should not be affected by the ignorant ones who forget about God.
Islam is all about love, compassion and mercy. However the system of the Mahdi would not come into existence without the system of the antichrist (dajjal). Cruelty will come first, then compassion will follow; cold-heartedness will come first, then compassion will follow; first there will be lack of love, then love will come. Almighty God creates all these for people in order for them to appreciate these blessings.
Unbelievers are one nation. Some of them appear as the militants of the PKK, some others will appear in another form. The same holds true for ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria); it is a system that doesn’t abide by the Qur’an and it acts in line with the system of the idolaters. Eventually they will abide by the Mahdi (pbuh) and bend their knees before him.
After the appearance of the Mahdi (pbuh) and the establishment of the Islamic Union, the impact of the good deeds one collects would drop from one million to three. That is because the rest will be very easy. All hardships will thus be removed. The antichrist (dajjal) will then be dead. The attacks of one’s lower-self would be removed as well, so everything will be fine.
There is a beauty in the votes of our Kurdish brothers and sisters but there is no good in the votes of the PKK. There is no good in asking for their votes; that would only bring about inauspiciousness. There is good in the votes of our people but there is repulsiveness and inauspiciousness in the votes of the PKK.
We need to give political consciousness to our youth. For instance, one should think why does the PKK educate its militants in the mountains for days, months and years? Otherwise they could collect them from the streets of Diyarbakır and use them as they are but they don't; they are educating their people. They are educating them starting from their childhood. Political consciousness is very important.
We need to look out for the followers of Süleyman Hilmi Tunahan. We need to look out and protect the followers of Treatise of Light, the Naqshbandis, the Qadiris as well. We need to constitute a reasonable, wide structure with political consciousness and fervor in line with the interests of our country and our people by educating them all without externalizing anyone.
The PKK terror organization is acting really spoiled. If we constitute a whole with a national consciousness, the PKK will have no force left but because the PKK is very well aware that national consciousness is not really wide spread among our people, and because they are fully aware that their own youth is conscious and politized, they are putting their trust in their own youth.
The PKK terror organization is a great trouble for the whole region. The people there are not able to live in peace right now in the Southeast, they are living under the control of the mafia. How could one live comfortably under the control of the mafia? How could one live comfortably under the command of a gang? That will only be cleaned up with the system of the Mahdi.
There are some people who desire to divide Turkey. The government needs to start a scientific mobilization. There should be courses in all public schools that educate the students about the danger of the PKK. Students should be educated against communism, against materialistic philosophy and against the danger of national disintegration in secondary schools, highschools and universities and panels should be held.
The concept of family does not exist in communism anyway. Children belong to the state in the communist mindset. Unless Darwinist materialist education is halted, unless the invalidity of communism is explained extensively and unless a national consciousness is very strongly taught to our youth as a special course, these scourges will continue to rain down on our people.
Instead of the sense of devotion for fellow townsmens the PKK terror organization uses in the Southeast, we need to activate devotion for Islam. That is because devotion of Islam is very strong. Devotion for fellow townmens is something far below it in comparison. And because the people there are very pious, great success will be attained in the Southeast in this way. No success can be attained any other way.
The PKK used fear in the beginning, they created a foundation with terror and violence but now they are approaching the Kurds with love, compassion and a spirit of fellowship. Our state should also approach our Kurdish brothers with faith, with the Qur'an, with the moral values of the Qur'an and with love by very strongly implementing the theme of the brotherhood of Muslims.
In response to the education the PKK is giving to the militants in the mountains, our youth should definitely be given political education as well. Their love of country and nation should be reinforced and they should be brought up as young people with high political culture, determined to stand against separation, who are very well aware of the Darwinist, materialist threat, who know very well how to respond to communism. They should be fully equipped with all kinds of information against separatism, and be given the necessary intellectual foundations to raze the Stalinist theory of the PKK 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.
The lower self, jealousy and egocentricity make one’s body do abnormal acts eventually. People assume that nothing bad will happen if one follows his lower self; actually lots of things happen. It would ruin a man. The lower self is the propelling force in those who commit suicide. It drives them mad and drags them into committing suicide. They also commit murders because they abide by their lower selves.
God gives one aggressive, abnormal wrong feelings to the lower self, but He also shows the ways to be protected against those with the verses of the Qur’an. The whole system of trial is founded upon that anyways. People need to recognize this highly dangerous threat and be alerted and be careful against it. We are to look for the acts that please God the most.
People generally do not attach necessary importance to the concept of the lower self. Actually it is a special force embedded in humans, it is a negative power; may God forbid it might drive one crazy and might even make one commit murder, it might make one commit suicide. All these troubles happen under the influence of the lower self. People imagine that nothing would happen if they go by their lower selves but actually lots of things happen. It might take one over and drag them into troubles,; the lower self suffocates one.
A Muslim needs to give himself in to the prayers, he needs to focus on the prayer but prayers should not be tiresome. Look at the prayers in the Qur’an. The prayers of the Prophets are always short. “My Lord, increase me in knowledge” (Surat At-Taha;114) That is it. Short but frequent. “My Lord, Guide us on the Straight Path” “My Lord, keep me thankful for the blessing You bestowed on me, keep me acting rightly, pleasing You.”
Saying prayer is very important. What stops the feelings of anguish? Saying prayer does. A Muslim needs to say prayer. For instance, let us say that one is going to make a speech; a Muslim would say, “O My Lord, make me speak beautifully.” Let us say he will eat; “O My Lord, let me enjoy the flavor of this food and make them means for my health. Grant me the joy of being one of those who thanks God.”
Ascension means passing from the third dimension to the fourth dimension. There are dimensions in the universe. We are living in a three- dimensional universe; There is a fourth dimension, but we are unable to see it right now but those in the fourth dimension can see us. Angels and djinn are watching us right now but we are unable to see them. For us to be able to see them we should become light. Our Prophet (saas) saw them because he became dematerialized.
Religion is honor. Demanding something that religion does not demand would be ignominous, honor would then be disrupted. If you claim that God is saying something while He clearly does not, if you make additions to the religion of God, that is when one would actually become dishonorable, that is when one would lose his honor.
It would be great if the Islamic world were to embrace Putin, cooperate with him and if they were to include Russia as an important member of the Islamic Union. What Russia is concerned about the most is to be left alone. All will be solved if the Islamic world would embrace Russia. Islam would prevail throughout the whole world in a flash.
Let Turkey relish religion, let the whole country relish religion. Let the warmth and the protectiveness of religion envelop everywhere. Let us see the warmth of religion in the clubs, let us see the warmth of religion on the beaches, in the national assembly, everywhere. It would be great if that happens.
Idolaters would not want any good to fall on Muslims, they wouldn’t want them to laugh, to have fun, to dress well, to live in a beautiful house, to have a good education, to enjoy high quality. They advocate squalor like theirs everywhere they go. They want everyone to live in that kind of squalor. It is apparent that we would not give way to that. God wouldn’t allow that and He will make His servants instrumental in preventing it.
If you submit to the Qur’an, if you love God and live love and passion, God would beautify you as well. What would happen to one if one lives in jealousy, hatred, rage and malice? The cells of the body would become cancerous. That person’s nose would get ugly, their mouth, hands, their whole body would become ugly.
When you talk about Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) you will be aware of the antichrist (dajjal); when you talk about the dajjal you will be aware of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). These two constitute a whole. I mean everything is created with its contrast; like day and night, or good and bad. If there is a dajjal, there absolutely is a Mahdi; if there is a Mahdi, there absolutely is a dajjal.
What kind of an attitude is mentioned in the verses of the Qur’an? One that doesn’t give way to any tension, rage, or any kind of disturbance in the heart; not giving way to such manners. Not feeling afraid or sad, not being uneasy. In short, the Qur’an mentions an attitude that avoids all sorts of attitudes that could psychologically disturb a person.
If a person could get inside a chromosome and witness that system he could never stop prostrating all his life. If he could enter a human cell, if he could become a protein and witness the working system there, if he could carry out the duty of a protein himself, if he could wander around inside a cell he would be out of breath with awe, he would fall in love with God. One should be able to get inside that, inside that human cell with his heart, with his mind.
One’s connection to God should never be severed. If one severs his connection to God, he would lose his trust and submission to God. Once that happens, he would become very tense, angry and uneasy. Submission to God is one of the greatest blessings on Earth that should never be forgotten, even for a second.
One should refrain from those who do not fear God, from those who do not act on faith, those who do not act with the Qur’an. That is because they have no fundamental law. You would never know what they are thinking. They could do anything. But a Muslim does have a fundamental law and abides by the laws of God.
The spirit of showing compassion to women would increase love for women as well. Some people only see women as sexual objects. They would then approach them in the spirit of hatred. Compassion and the spirit of mercy and protection would increase love in folds. Actually compassion is mentioned all the time in the Qur’an. I mean there is love mixed with mercy, a protective kind of love.
Mourning is only acceptable in the sense of respect, in the sense of showing courtesy, concentrating on the topic, being interested and concerned with it. It is not in the sense of being frantic with sorrow, crying, wallowing, freaking out, and feeling pain. Those would all be ascribing partners to God.
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.
If one feels frantic with sorrow for a person who's gone to the Sight of God, who's gone to His Heaven; if one cries his eyes out grieving that means he doesn't appreciate what God created; that means he is rebellious against God, may God forbid. But if he thanks God for what He created, if he praises Him, if he welcomes this ultimate union, his meeting His Lord with joy, if he welcomes passing to Heaven; that is a characteristic of a Muslim. The other is the characteristic of idolaters.
Unity can clearly be attained with the spirit of the system of the Mahdi. Everyone says; "let us be in unity." But no one would ever take such wishes seriously. Racism, sectarianism, regionalism, even district based discrimination is widespread. Since our Prophet (saas) is very well aware of this trouble on his ummah, he specifically charges his Mahdi with that task.
Reaching the Treatise of Light somehow would expand the horizons of a person; it opens up one's world. That is why it would be very beneficial for every one of our brothers and sisters to have at least a piece of Treatise of Light at their homes. That is because the language used in the Treatise of Light is very sincere; it is the language of Islam.
Azerbaijan is very dear to us. We are two different states of one nation. It is like our Rize, like our Konya. But it has been separated from us for now. That is an artificial separation. We will put aside this separation. Our Minister of Foreign Affairs is striving intensely to this end but that would be vouchsafed to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).
Abdullah Öcalan (leader of the PKK Terror Organization) does not accept family, he doesn’t accept religion, he wants communist ruling. We will not let a new North Korea be formed in the South East of Turkey. May God forbid, had something like that somehow be formed, it would swallow the whole country in a very short period of time. All of Turkey would then be lost.
Muslims recognize the Mahdi (pbuh) with their foresight, perception and with the light of their faith. Just like people recognizing our Prophet (saas) with the light of their faith, just like his students recognizing Bediuzzaman Said Nursi with the light of their faith, Muslims will also recognize the Mahdi (pbuh) with the light of their faith.
A Muslim lives for the good pleasure of God and he dies for the good pleasure of God. If one does not live for the good pleasure of God, life would turn into a living hell for him/her. Everything should be for the good pleasure of God; only then life would be beautiful. Heaven would be beautiful with the good pleasure of God as well.
We will build a life like Heaven for our Kurdish brothers and sisters in the South East. We will make Diyarbakır, Mardin, Siirt like Paris and London. We will wipe out PKK with science, law and legal system. There will be no more threat of PKK and no more PKK unruliness. We will not let the fear of PKK remain, insha’Allah .
Did the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) have tanks and cannonballs? No, he didn’t. Did he have thousands of students? No, he didn’t. Did he have money? No, he didn’t. What did he have? He had sincerity. He was the Mahdi of his time. God made him victorious. What condition does Almighty God has for that? One should be able to endure hardships, one should be patient in the face of hardships and sufferings. Or else no result can be attained if one tries to present himself as if he is facing hardships yet not really facing any hardships.
People die every day. We are living in the world, this is a place of testing. People get sick every day. How do they come up with the idea of mourning? There is no such thing in the Qur'an. There is no such understanding in Islam. It only has a place in idolatry, in the totemist mentality, in the belief system of the idolaters. This is a characteristic of pagan religions, but there is no such thing in Islam.
The mentality that urges one to cry after everything is abnormal. This is a remnant system from the idolaters of Mecca, from the idolaters of Sumeria, from way back. That is outright insincerity. This is an act which shows that one does not have trust in God- may God forbid. One would only cry if he thinks –may God forbid- that God is not the One Who creates that event.
The human brain is small, but it controls the whole body. The community of the Mahdi will be small as well and they will be the brain of the Islamic world; the brain of the Islamic world will be a small community. That is the wisdom behind the system of the Mahdi: I mean they will be a small group, but they will constitute the brain that operates the whole Islamic world.
People Almighty God has specifically created recognize the Mahdi (pbuh) and accept him because this is in their destiny. Or else satan will try to create an enormous resistance in people against the Mahdi; it will whisper into their ears saying; “Upon my word do not approach him Beware, he is very dangerous.” God will only gather his sincere students around him.
Let me give you a secret. God doesn’t say,” Those who have weapons, those who have power, those who have money and those who have political power will prevail in the world.” God doesn’t say ; ” Those who perform their prayers, those who fast will prevail in the world.” God says, “Those sincere servants of Mine will attain salvation and prevail in the world.” He only mentions the sincere ones.
Almighty God conceals the Mahdi because people would persecute him if they knew. He conceals the Mahdi behind 70 veils. They keep saying, “This person cannot be the Mahdi (pbuh) because of this and that aspect.” They invent 70 different excuses. Almighty God conceals him with Hidden Knowledge: With the Secret Knowledge, with the knowledge of Unseen.
Islam is the true Christianity; Islam is the true Judaism. Those who want to be true Christians should actually be Muslims. Those who want to be true Jews should also be Muslims. Once they become Muslims, they would become true Mohammedans and true Jews, they would become true Christians; perfect and flawless.
The system of the Mahdi is an environment of brotherhood and friendship, it is an environment of love. People would not be swaggering, they would not suffer. At the moment, cocaine, heroin, weed, alcohol are all consumed like water. Why is this? It is because of the lack of love. People start using drugs to be saved from the pain of that scarcity of love.
People are always alone nowadays; they have no one to love them, they have no friends, no companions. As a matter of fact, passion is a very beautiful feeling; love is a very beautiful feeling; affection is a very beautiful feeling; loving and being loved is very nice, respect is very nice, being appreciated is very nice. Many people do not appreciate one another, they do not respect each other and that is horrible.
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.
The system of the Mahdi is the most important incident ever since the creation of this world. All the prophets, ever since the Prophet Adam (pbuh) have drawn attention to the Mahdi. The Prophet Noah (pbuh), the Prophet Abraham (pbuh), the Prophet Moses (pbuh) have all drawn attention to the Mahdi (pbuh).
The PKK terrorist movement is a movement of the system of the antichrist. There is an environment in the Southeast in which the antichrist is badgering our mothers and sisters living there and the antichrist wants to divide us; it wants to take our brothers and sisters away from us. And there is the movement of the system of the Mahdi there against it.
The oppression of the PKK should be removed from the people of the Southeast. When there is such pressure of the PKK the people living there cannot vote freely. There is a massive threat environment. For that reason, before all else, the threat of the PKK should be removed from the region urgently so that our people in the Southeast can freely and peacefully vote.
There is nothing that belongs to us; everything belongs to God. All beauties, making people loved, making people liked all belongs to God. Almighty God is the Eternal, Infinite Beauty. We understand this from His Manifestations. Almighty God manifests only a portion of His Beauty and we all feel out of breath.
The mentality of mourning is fundamentally wrong. A Muslim would never do that. God is the One Who brings us to this world, and God is the One Who takes us back to His Sight. The right thing to do is to submit to our destiny and to put our trust in the goodness, beauty and abundance of what God gives. Anything other than that would not befit a Muslim.
As Almighty God is the One Who takes the life of that person, He brings one to this world with goodness and He takes that person to His Sight with goodness when he dies. So there is no meaning in crying. It is a characteristic of a Muslim to be content with what our Lord has ordained in our destiny and see the good in that destiny.
The Heaven is an abode of joy and it is eternal happiness, eternal beauty. When you are sending your child to the Hereafter you are actually sending your child to an abode that everything is perfect, so mourning would be extremely wrong while doing so. It would mean to say; -may God forbid- “I didn’t like what God wanted, I know better”. And that would be ascribing partners to God.
A Muslim should see the beautiful things and also the ugly ones; yet he should prefer the beautiful things and look for the wisdom behind the ugliness. There is nothing ugly in the Heaven. Ugliness is only created in this world for testing. Everything and everyone is beautiful in the Heaven; trees, plants, people, children and all food.
Disintegration is the gravest danger Turkey is facing right now. That is the greatest risk. All our power, all our force, all our dignity would be ruined. Our economy would be ruined; that is a grave danger. We would be torn into pieces, may God forbid, there would be nothing left to call Turkey. That would ruin the Islamic World; that would ruin all the Muslims. There would be no one left to call Kurdish anyway.
One might think that Kurdish people will unite and be happy eventually. Actually, that will never happen. They are thinking about a massive Kurdish massacre. What does founding a communist Kurdistan in the region mean? It would make the region a target for whole Europe and the US. They will tear the region to shreds.
We have a beautiful country that blocks the way of persecutors and that protects inoffensive people. We have a very small force, a very small piece of land anyway. And if they attempt to divide that small land it would bring about the Last Day. That would end with the coming of the Last Day. That will be the end of this world, they should forget about that.
Our Prophet (saas) says; “Women will become like men in the End Times.” That happened exactly as our Prophet foretold. They have ruined their natural disposition. In the time of the Mahdi women will look like women, men will look like men, the buildings will be like buildings, arts will be like art, music will be as it should be; everything will fall into place and everything will be even more beautiful insha’Allah.
Praying without clinging on to necessary means would not be acceptable. If you are saying that you will perform your prayers, yet go and sit in a corner, even if you say “My Lord let me perform my prayers,” you would simply be sitting there doing nothing. You should do your actual praying by going and performing your prayers. The determination and the effort you make would be your actual praying.
PKK movement is a very ambitious, very cruel movement. People might think that there will be a moderate, calm and plain administration, but this is not the case. They are trying to approach very moderately for now in order to set their trap; but once they establish the communist government, the cruel and sharp aspect of the PKK will reveal itself.
We need to strive to make things right between the Gulen community and the government. It is a religious obligation to arrange an amicable settlement between them, it is the command of the Qur’an; the command of God. God says; “If two parties of the Muslims fight make peace between them.” Consequently we cannot be a side in such a dispute.
An independent Kurdistan will never be found in our South East region. They should forget about that. There will be a great Islamic structuring, there will be Islamic Unity, there will be a great Turkish Islamic Union. That union will cover Russia, Armenia an Israel as well. They will all be included and the world would thus attain peace and tranquility. The notion of racism will be annihilated.
Setting Muslims against one another is not acceptable; the right thing to do is to better Muslims, to correct their mistakes and to make them useful. There are only a handful of intellectuals among Muslims. Why should we oppress one of those few we have? We should win them over. If those handful of people join together that would constitute an amazing unity. It would be a grave mistake to try to crush those “handfuls.”
In such turmoil, Muslims attempting to go at each other hammer and tongs, attempting to spend each other and especially attempting to set intellectual Muslim masses against each other might be a PKK Project. It seems that an instruction has been given from somewhere to crush all elements that would resist the PKK and distigration. We should be very careful in the face of this.
Muslim intellectuals should respect each other; they should love and watch over each other. The Fethullah Gulen community, Naqshbandi community, Qadiriyya and all sorts of religious communities can be counted among them. They should most definitely come together and state that they love one another, that they are friends and brothers with one another. Anything contrary would be very dangerous.
Our PM is using a very well-intentioned language. He is employing a Muslim way of speaking and he enjoys the richness it brings about. He is enjoying the richness of the Treatise of Light right now; this is the richness of the Bediuzzaman. That is why he had cleared everything up and why he is at ease. That is very important insha'Allah.
Withdrawing our police officers, our soldiers from that region, decreasing the security forces would drag the majority of the people living there into fear and into feeling respect to the power of PKK. The ranger force should also be very strong, so should the police, soldier and gendarme forces. Especially civil elements, I mean the civil law enforcement agencies should be very powerful.
If the people of the South East region feel themselves secure enough, they would comfortably vote for the party they want. I mean if they could be able to cast their votes without worrying, in comfort in the South East, the Felicity Party would also collect very high numbers of votes, the MHP [Nationalist Movement Party] would collect a lot of votes, CHP [Republican People’s Party] would not be erased from that region but collect a lot of votes, AK Party would collect a lot of votes and it would be just like the other parts of Turkey. The balances there have been disturbed because of the fear they are subjected to.
Even though the people of the South East [of Turkey] are devoutly religious they are voting for the left wing. This shows the severity of the pressure applied on them in that region. Whereas the danger of the PKK [terror organization] in that region should have been made zero. When that happens, the people living there will enjoy utmost freedom and their votes would be clean and lawful like mother’s milk. But an election held while there is intimidation and an atmosphere of violence, with pressure exerted and with PKK making appearances would not be healthy.
All the commands of the Qur’an are like livesavers. Or else people would be suffocated, life would suffocate them. Men are already living inside the stream called life. People succeed to remain alive without being suffocated because of these beauties. Without these blessings people would be suffocated and sink under this water
One would be happy and have his mind relieved when he performs his prayers, when he performs ablution, when he submits to God’s will, mentions the Name of God, reads the Qur’an. God has created man in a way that he would feel that need. One would be suffocated if he doesn’t live all these beauties. These are all blessings that prevent one to be drawn in that water, these are lifesaving blessings.
Love is a requirement. If you attempt to attain something with egocentricity, the egocentricity you will be facing would suffocate you. If you step up cunningly, even more cunning ones would suffocate you. If you attempt to play tricks, the one you are facing would play ten times more tricks. Beauty cannot be attained with tricks, with rouses and with fraud; it can be attained with honesty, sincerity and love.
When we love a person we love him/her for the good pleasure of God. What does the good pleasure of God mean? It stems from the services rendered for Islam. Does he/she unite Muslims? Does he/she ensure unity? Does he/she work to quell dissension? Does he/she develop an attitude against division? If we see all these in a person, we should love that person for the good pleasure of God. We feel that love as a religious observation.
Returning to the times of Ottomans is never a possibility. I mean there is no policy to be called neo-Ottomans. There is only the policy of the system of the Mahdi. The system of the Mahdi is what we call the unity of the Islamic world. And the person to lead that unity is called the Mahdi. That will be made possible with the support of the Jesus Messiah.
One cannot become a Mahdi simply because he wants to become the Mahdi or by working hard for it. One is born to be the Mahdi (as) and God preordains in destiny who Mahdi (as) will be. Fame and making fuss wouldn’t ensure it, working hard wouldn’t ensure it. It is all about the heart. The system of the Mahdi is all about profound faith.
One wouldn’t become the Mahdi by striving for it. One wouldn’t become the Mahdi by propaganda. The Prophet Moses (pbuh) did not become a prophet by propaganda; he didn’t become a prophet by striving for it either. He became a prophet because of his morality, because of his patience in the face of hardships.
Turkey should immediately and urgently conduct a peace operation in Syria together with the other Islamic countries. If the Islamic countries make a move altogether, no one would ever resist it since it would be evaluated as a faith related, Qur’anic and moral initiative. Even if they did it with five countries, the problem would be solved with only those five countries.
The origin of happiness is faith. A person becomes happy with faith. Because he gives his thanks to God, he submits to God under any circumstances and looks for goodness in everything. In the spirit of unbelief, people look for bad things in everything. In the spirit of unbelief, people look for evil, dissension and commotion.
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.
Let everyone speak out their opinions, let everyone criticize. Why is there the need for curses, for defamations? Curses burn out those who curse. They would have their hearts torn out. They would lose their happiness and joy. They would lose the radiant light in their faces. That would give them pain.
We can only stand out against the system of the dajjal (antichrist) with strong faith. Apart from that it would not be possible to stand out against it. That is because the antichrist is raising itself day and night with Darwinist, materialist education. We can only stand out against it with the miracles of the Qur’an, with the facts leading to faith.
We have prepared the philosophical background for the AK Party. It is not possible for a party to come to power without laying the philosophical background. Consequently we have supported the government from the most crucial point. Because we have laid the philosophical background so firmly, so much so that no one can approach the government from a philosophical aspect.
What is the characteristic of a lover? It is never deserting the loved one despite all sorts of sufferings and hardships. A lover would never leave his loved one even under the hardest conditions. God is showing us how much we are living with that spirit of a lover. That is because in the Hereafter, the existence and the manifestations of God will be the greatest pleasure we will be given.
“And your Lord would not have destroyed the cities unjustly while their people were reformers.”(Surah Hud; 117) So God says; “I would not destroy a country in which Islam is preached, in which genuine Muslims reside.” That is why no harm will fall on Turkey because Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) resides here. No big disasters will befall on Turkey, no calamities would fall upon Turkey. There will only be success and victory.
If a person is intimidated and forced into accepting an opinion, hatred will be formed in his/her subconscious towards that opinion. People should be warmed into ideas by making them love these ideas, by persuasion and by gentle placation. It should be done reasonably and peacefully through democratic means.
Ideas cannot be preached through terror and violence. When terror and violence is perpetrated, the horrific aspect of communism surfaces once more. Do whatever you what through opinions, by conversation; publish periodicals, publish books, prepare booklets, hold conferences or go explain people one by one. But there is nothing to be proud of in violence and terror.
One should put his trust in God. If you do not put your trust in God everything would give you pain, you would be bored of everything. Everything would make you afraid, everything would overwhelm you. All the incidents in the world would seem to come at you. As the verse of the Qur’an refers, God makes such people’s breasts narrow and constricted as if they were climbing up into the sky. One should submit to God for his heart to be at ease.
Muslims should say; “Oh my Lord, give me an infinite love and an endless closeness.” There is no end to love. That is because this is a place of trial; it is a place of racing. God refers to those who are the foremost in the race. What does “being foremost in the race” mean? It means being foremost in piety, it means being resolute, it means striving in the path of God and attaining the love of God.
Idolatry is a grave scourge. Idolatry, saying “Not God, but I did it,” “Not God but this one did it,” is what God detests the most. God says; “Know that I am the One Who does all of them so that I will increase the blessings on you. But if you say, “I did it,” then I will erase you from the face of this world and I will punish you.”
The great majority of people would have a tendency towards those who hold violence, who holds power in his hands. Consequently fort his election to be fair, the state should show its power in the South East region and remove fright and violence completely over the people. Or else it would be very difficult to make a fair election under the shadow of the weapons of PKK.
Animosity towards Jews, being against Jews, animosity against Christians, being against Christians, hatred towards Buddhists or having a fatal hatred towards atheists; these are all cruelty, these are all unreasonable and ruthless. God could have created you as atheists, as Jews or Christians. We are obliged to be compassionate and affectionate.
The universe is coded in sevens, threes, forties and nineteen’s. 3,7,9,19 are codes, that never fails. In fact Hazrat Khidr (pbuh) is the one who defined the dates like March 12th, September 12th. May 27th for instance 27 is a fold of 9. Nothing happens without a plan. The numbers are always in motion. Numbers are always on duty in the universe.
We should protect and watch over both the community and the government and ensure that they can serve together as brothers. Turkey is facing a grave danger. The danger of separation is at the door. We need to be alert. We will not let the 50 % decimate the other 50 %. We will unite 50 with the other 50 and make it 100. These are bad games. We would not be fooled by them.
There is bound to be violence in places where the system of the Mahdi does not prevail. God is showing that to people and He will continue to do so. We will all come to see that the coming days will be even fiercer. That will continue until love is formed in the hearts towards Jesus Messiah, Mahdi (pbuh) and the Islamic Union.
Iraq will be destroyed. It is not possible for the world to be saved in any way other than the system of the Mahdi. It is not possible without the system of the Mahdi. If they plead ignorance in the face of this, God will make them understand forcefully. So there has to be Mahdi (pbuh), there has to be Jesus Messiah (pbuh), there has to be Islamic Union.
This is a world that would not let you stay in your houses in comfort and deal with your checks, title deeds and your trade. It is not a world that you can be graduated from your school in peace and get married and deal with your own business. God would not give way to this. God did not create this world for this. God wants the appearance of the Mahdi; He wants the appearance of the Jesus Messiah and the global rule of Islam.
Islam will prevail with science and knowledge. Nothing could come out of politics, out of this and that, or out of opening schools, etc. Telling people one by one about the facts leading to faith, about the miracles of the Qur’an, giving glad tidings of the system of the Mahdi, taking refuge in Almighty God, becoming brothers, being loving, merciful, classy and leading by example; once we succeed in these matters, the rest will be solved, insha’Allah.
It is important to give honest information about everything and approach everything honestly. I mean blind hostility towards Israel is foolishness, it is stupidity. If there really is something abnormal, you can respond to it with laws and the legal system, but there is no reasonable explanation for a policy of hatred. This insane hatred towards Israel is not reasonable.
People have a tendency to see themselves as the bee's knees in their own minds; actually, the fact is this world is only as big as a chickpea when you look at it from the space. If you go even farther then you will see that it is like a mote of dust. If you go even farther it will disappear and it won’t be seen at all. What is important is to submit to Almighty God and to live as He commands.
All animals, all creatures have a leader. All religions, all sects have a leader. Buddhists, for instance, have a Lama as their leader. Christians have a leader, they have their Pope. Jews have a leader, they have their Chief Rabbi; and you say that “Muslims will not have a leader.” Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is the name of the leader of Muslims that will appear in our days.
Love cannot be attained without the fear of God. Without the fear of God one would be egotistical and selfish. One might say "I love you a lot," but he would be selfish, egotistical and cannot be generous. How can someone like that love? The love is gone in that; you would thus be burning out that love. Fear of God ensures all basic requirements of love.
Why would a person who is loved and who feels love inside commit suicide? They feel depressed because there is no love around. They turn to their left and see that there is no love there, they turn to their right and see that there is no love there either. They use drugs but even then cannot be saved. Eventually they commit suicide may God forbid.
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.
When they come across a communist, they instantly say; "let us bomb them!" Well if that one is a communist, why do you not educate him? Instead of throwing bombs on them, give them books. That would be a good deed; it would be a beauty, goodness, it would bring plentitude and it would be in compliance with the good pleasure of God. It is a good move in every aspect.
The Fethullah Gulen community is not a community that has been formed easily. They have at least 40 years of history. It is an organization formed with great efforts, by suffering through ordeals. They have such a nice enthusiasm. They might have their mistakes, they might have their flaws. One can criticize them within the limits of reason, consideration and good conscience. But trying to destroy them, desiring to pull them down would be cruelty.
Collecting tuition from students is not acceptable. Being a student is a hard work on its own, why should they be paying tuitions on top of that? The state should be paying them because they are going to school. How is it acceptable to collect money from a student? They should be given means and money instead.
The system of the Mahdi is evidently the only way out. It is a system that would be accepted by all; one that everyone would regard reasonable and that everyone would lovingly embrace. It is a system that would be in favor of Christian, Jews and Muslims. Consequently no system would ever be acceptable other than the only one that is in favor of everyone.
I am telling you this, ten years in advance and you will see this happening; the belongings of the Prophet Moses (pbuh), mannah, a part of his staff and the parts of the tablets the 10 commandments are written on and many other holy relics [will be found] all inside the holy arc. This ark will be found.
Mahdi will know the art of making people believe in God and making them love God. How will that be possible? By telling them about the miracles of the Qur'an, about the facts leading to faith, about the miracles of our Prophet (saas), about the wonders behind matter. He will thus be instrumental in people's guidance towards the right path.
Violence brings about violence. As violence brings about violence, it also becomes a sort of training for violence. For instance Syria and Iraq became the schools of violence; there is an amazing foundation there. But in the system of the Mahdi, only compassion, mercy, love, friendship, brotherhood, peace and wisdom prevails. Eventually people will be obliged to approach to the system of the Mahdi.
One should look at everything with compassion, mercy and through the eyes of reason and he should be calming. We are being tested in this short life on this world. Some people might yield to their lower-selves. But one would not be abandoning religion when he does so, he would just be committing a sin and making a mistake that is all.
Committing suicide is a form of murder. One who kills another would remain in the Hell for all eternity. The verse about this is very explicit in the Qur'an. That person would die without repenting, that is because he would thus be taking the life God gave him. And by killing himself he would be losing all he has, while it was possible for him to survive and continue his struggle in the way of God.
In the End Times, if people do not gather around one single mind, various minds would get in conflict with each other. When minds are in conflict, people will be in conflict as well and at the end anarchy occurs. It is apparent that there is no way out other than the Mahdi (pbuh) who is the teacher of love.
To criticize one's self and not claiming to be free of blame would make a Muslim adopt the character of a guide. A person's criticizing himself would make him wise and healthy. Exalting one's self would make one sick. It makes one crazy. When one criticizes himself, when one criticizes his lower self, he would be exalted; he would become wise and smart.
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.
Some scholars are trying to conceal the existence of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) whom our Prophet (saas) clearly foretold that would be an individual person, by saying that he will be a "collective identity"; that would drag Muslims into a deadlock. It would drag them into dissension, pain and predicaments. But the belief in the system of the Mahdi and the Islamic Union brings abundance, plenitude and beauty.
In the time of the Mahdi, the system of the Mahdi will bring about beauty and abundance. But of course that will not last long. I mean it will only continue until the year 1506 according to the Hegira calendar. Things will be corrupted once more after that date. Things will become depraved in Damascus and in Egypt once more, things will become depraved everywhere.
If you want God to forgive you, you should be forgiving as well. You should not be vindictive. They will just be given the punishment they deserve in this world within the framework of laws. Alright; that will be enough. There is no need for grudge and hostility on top of that. If he repents, he will be your brother.
We are in a very short course, it really is very short. We are being trained day and night and we are improving ourselves, we are taking the civility of the Heaven. Without the civility of the Heaven if were to go to the Heaven we would have been like robots. We have to get that training in order to be able to take endless pleasure in the Heaven.
Opposition is what the governments need the most. The stronger the opposition is in a country the more beautiful and prosperous that country would become. A government without an opposition would be dreadful. For instance North Korea is terrifying, may God forbid. They have no opposition. Anyone making a sound against the government loses his life. In Turkey everyone is allowed to say whatever he/she likes.
The Government should be distributing cancer drugs free of charge. Once a patient brings a prescription stating that he/she is a cancer patient, the state should give that drug free of charge. That is what we ask from our Prime Minister. The cancer patients should not be made to pay for their medicine.
A Muslim would never be bored of loving, he/she would never be bored of love or the one he/she loves; that is attained through faith. But if there is a point of view focusing on flesh and bones, of course you would be bored. Such a person is after the flesh and does not love. But a Muslim is after the soul, heart and love.
Israel and Armenia are two key countries. Both of them are important parts of Islamic Unity, both of them are important beauties within that structure. Both Jews and Armenians will enjoy utmost freedom. We will all live in peace and beauty within the boundless Turkish Islamic Union together with the whole Islamic World.
Capital punishment should be removed from the world. You can give life time imprisonment to those who deserve. Why is there the need to execute a person? Let the man repent, read the Qur’an and perform his prayers. But you go ahead and execute that person while he is still in his ignorance. You would thus be setting fire to his life in the Hereafter and his life in this world as well. Let him repent, let him pull himself together and make up for all he has done.
PKK militants attach great importance to Darwinist, materialist, Stalinist propaganda. This propaganda is going on in the mountain, in their coffeehouses, in their homes night and day. Muslims should also conduct studies that communicate the miracles of the Qur’an and the facts leading to faith. These should be done thousand times, million times more. They need to be very strong and very determind.
Once a person gets used to shoddiness, it opens the doors for him to become dirtier, even shoddier, more vulgar and dull, then you find yourself asking: What is this? And they say “This is Islam.” They call a system in which violence, dirt, shoddiness and vulgarity reaches to highest levels Islam. That is a grave danger. That is national danger.
When Muslims are at odds with each other, it is a religious obligation to make things right in between them to the best of our ability. We should show an effort, use all instruments and see if it works or not. When two Muslim communities- groups are at odds with each other, it is a religious obligation to interfere. It is a religious obligation to show an effort to make things right in between them. We are all responsible of performing that religious obligation, just like prayers.
Material possessions should be distributed, they should be spent on the Way of God. What would you do if you simply pile them up, what good would that do to you? On the other hand, if you spend what you have, you become richer and even more beautiful. You would be in comfort both in this world and in the Hereafter.
If one does not focus on faith but on doing trade, on money and one’s own interests, it would bring about weakness in faith. Under those circumstances neither Islamic Union nor the appearance of Mahdi (pbuh), nor the descend of the Jesus Messiah (pbuh) would be important for such a person. If one does not focus on faith but on doing trade, on money and one’s own interests, it would bring about weakness in faith. Under those circumstances neither Islamic Union nor the appearance of Mahdi (pbuh), nor the descend of the Jesus Messiah (pbuh) would be important for such a person.
Communism is like a gum, it sticks on a person. Even if that person gives up being a communist, it wouldn’t leave him alone, it vacums him in. I mean it is like a web of a spider. When that web sticks it pulls everyone in everywhere. That is the specialty of communism. I mean leaving a communist gang is not something easy to do. If one gets out, he gets killed.
Whole Turkey is like a single province, we are all brothers and sisters. There is one single family in Turkey. One single family, one single room. We are living here as a family. One of our children speaks Kurdish, one of our daughters speaks Turkish and another speaks Laz language. We are all intertwined.
If you abide by different sects instead of abiding by the Qur'an, it would be unlawful. If God says; "I have sent you the Qur'an. Where did you come up with those sects?" What would you have said? If God asks; "Are you going to abide by the Qur'an or the sects?" what would we say? We are of course responsible of abiding by the Qur'an.
A powerful faith is very important. That is very rarely seen in people. In respect of well-founded faith one person would suffice for a whole city. In fact, one such person would suffice for a whole country. In the Torah God says "If there are only 10 faithful people among you, I will make the true faith (Islam) prevail in the world."
Almighty God is filling the sea of the system of the Mahdi for 40 years. The overflow will come at the end of those 40 years. After that, just like the ark of the Prophet Noah (pbuh), the ship will run ashore insha'Allah. Our Prophet (saas) says; "The life of the antichrist (dajjal) will be 40 years." That means the struggle in between the system of the Mahdi and the system of the antichrist will last 40 years.
The sea of the system of the Mahdi is bigger than the seven seas; it is being filled day and night. Whatever happens for and against, they all flow towards the system of the Mahdi. Nothing that does not flow towards the system of the Mahdi ever happens; the system is constantly enhanced. But it would not overflow unless that sea is filled.
All active movements are without fail against the system of the dajjal and are for the system of the Mahdi. Earthquakes flow towards the sea of the system of the Mahdi, volcanoes and everything else that could come to mind would flow towards the system of the Mahdi. Social events; for instance economic crisis flow towards the system of the Mahdi, they constantly enhance the system of the Mahdi, inch by inch, meter by meter.
Almighty God does not want monotony, God definitely breaks down inertia. For instance if it is a mountain we are talking about, He turns it into a volcano, if it is a land we are talking about, He makes it restless with an earthquake, if it is a person He either makes him sick or makes him happy or takes his life; but one way or another Almighty God surely brings about dynamism. There is no inertia.
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.
Christians unite under the leadership of the Pope; Jews unite under the leadership of the Chief Rabbi. Masons unite under the Grand Master. How about Muslims? They keep saying; "There is no need for Muslims to unite." How is that acceptable? There is something weird about that, there is something wrong. And it has to be made right immediately. Islamic Union should be advocated enthusiastically with love. Anything contrary is forbidden by religion.
God says that Muslims should definitely have a leader. He says that every nation has a leader. He says; "I will give you richness, abundance, peace and security in unity and solidarity." God says; "Or else I will make you taste fear and pain, I will make you suffer." And that happens exactly as He says. It is no use to try and ignore God's open command.
Without the Union of Islam, they are ruining Muslims. There is no other way. They have torn the Muslims into pieces and they are swallowing them bit by bit. They couldn't have done that if we were united. That is because that would mean a powerful unity. When you are divided into bits and pieces, when you present each bit into their mouths, they swallow you bit by bit.
Mahdi (pbuh) is covered with 70 different veils. They will never be able to go beyond the first or the second veil. They won't be able to see and say; "Is that the Mahdi(pbuh)?" They are continuously looking for the Mahdi in the world. They won't be able to find him; all their efforts are in vain. And they cannot stop him.
Bediuzzaman says; "Overdoing anything would be extravagancy." Meaning it would be excessive. "But overdoing "keeping in contact with each other" is perfection." Keeping in contact means seeing each other, having discourses, making contact and overdoing these is perfection, he says. Muslims should overdo in keeping contact, insha'Allah. They should meet each other frequently.
There is richness in discourses. Companions of our Prophet (saas) have reached maturity through the discourses of our Prophet (saas). Even if they participate the discourse of our Prophet (saas) only for ten minutes, they would attain maturity. Richness comes with discourse. And praying during discourses is one of the most beautiful blessings. Their hearts would be nurtured with that prayer.
God enables people to benefit from getting used to certain things in one respect; it might be a characteristic given in order to protect people from being ruined by the fear of God. It enables people to be calmer. I mean it is like a tranquilizer for people. Getting used to certain facts is like psychological tranquilizer.
One needs to pray to God to be protected against familiarity in that sense, saying; "My Lord, please protect me from getting used to miraculous events. Make the impact of this wonderful knowledge rule over my heart and my soul. Protect me from ruining this valuable information which conduces my faith, by getting used to it"
Getting used to wonderful incidents is a disaster. For instance one hears about the miracles of our Prophet (saas), his eyes get filled with tears, he feels astonished. And then familiarity swallows him in an instant. People have a tendency towards getting used to everything. One needs to resist that.
Getting used to important facts and wonders is very dangerous. That is one of the points a Muslim should work on the most. For instance one studies the structure of the cell and feels out of breath. But an intense wave of familiarity at the back of his mind would constantly suck that knowledge. It constantly suppresses that amazing information.
The system of the Mahdi is the way to enter the European Union as well. The spirit of the Mahdi, love of the system of the Mahdi, compassion of the system of the Mahdi, sincerity of the system of the Mahdi, its approach toward democracy, arts and science are ideal for the European Union. It is crucial for Christian-Muslim alliance.
In uneducated people there is a strong tendency towards violence and vandalism; it is very easy for them to ravage things. It is very easy for them to fall in disbelief. It is very easy for them to be irreligious. But being religious requires having good morals, being sensible and strong-willed; it requires patience, self-sacrifice and profundity. It is not easy. That is why communist way of thinking develops very easily among them.
Being based on a very strong belief system is a specialty of the system of the Mahdi. That is the reason why it is invincible. Policy should be installed upon a very strong basis of faith. Strong political maneuvers are of no value. Systems based on strong political maneuvers are bound to be destroyed, they definitely fail. This should not be forgotten.
The Prophet Joseph (pbuh) was alone. God made him the Sultan of the whole region. Dhul'Qarnayn was one person as well, God developed an environment for him. And he became the ruler of the world within a very short time. The Prophet Solomon (pbuh) was on his own, he became sovereign in a very short time. That is because they all are genuine believers. They truly have strong faith. That is why the Torah states this as well. If there are only ten people with genuine faith, God says that He will make Islam prevail in the world.
Men's interference on women should be lifted already. That is really embarrassing and it is the shame of centuries. People should be saved from this scourge in no time. Ladies should enjoy utmost freedom. They should be able to dress as ever they like, they should be able to talk as ever they like and go wherever they like.
This is the first time in the history of the world where people keep saying "Mahdi will not come" this widely: The fact that there are people who keep saying "There is no Mahdi, he will not come," is a portent of his coming. That is because as foretold in the hadiths, Hazrat Mahdi will appear in a time when people say; "There is no Mahdi."
Demolishing the system of the Mahdi is the main goal for the foundation of the Ergenekon terror organization. It has been founded to stop the system of the Mahdi. It has no other reason. It has been structured in Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Turkic states and Iran. Its sole goal is to stop the system of the Mahdi. But God has turned it against them of course.
God is the One Who enables AK Party to remain in power. Had God willed so, they would have been long gone. But God wants to keep the government. God wants a stable government. The reason for that is to make it easy to act for the system of the Mahdi and to strengthen the arms of the system of the Mahdi and to make it possible for the system of the Mahdi to work peacefully.
You ask him "what is your religion?" and he responds by telling you his sect. Well, are you not responsible of abiding by the Qur'an? You are saying I am abiding by this sect. Where does it write in the Qur'an to abide by a sect? God only mentions abiding by the Qur'an. Where did you come up with the idea of abiding by a sect?
It would not be right to doubt whether any harm has come to the love in between Israel and Turkey. We love one another; we have always loved, we will always love each other but political disagreements might occur now and then. Attributing this to an entire nation, to the entire Israeli nation, entire Turkish nation would really be very wrong.
At the time of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) police stations will be vacant, prisons will be vacant. All police stations will be closed, all prisons will be closed. People will be astonished asking themselves; "Why have we ever felt the need to establish police stations? Why have we ever felt the need to build prisons? Why have we suffered all these pains?"
This system, the current system of the world generates criminals. As the system generates criminals, prisons become a necessity. So they constantly open new prisons. And the system constantly sends people to those prisons. People are continually being sent to prisons from all around the world every single day. That will completely change in the time of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).
All sufis – all of the ten great religious orders- have pledged allegiance to the Mahdi (pbuh). Consequently it is not possible for Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) to be subject to any sheikh. All sheikhs have become subjects to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) whether they like it or not. At that moment all inspiration is distributed to the whole through Mahdi (pbuh).
We are friends with Israel and we are friends with the Israeli people. We have always loved our Jewish brothers and sisters; we loved them in the time of the Ottomans, we loved them in the time of our Prophet (saas) as well. We've always shown them compassion and no one would or could ever do anything contrary.
One needs to look and admire the rich details in God's creating. Then the love one feels for God would increase even further. When love increases so does the fear of God. When fear of God increases, so does your submission to God. When your submission to God increases, it would be as if your nerves are taken. Your mind would be at ease and you would be very much relieved. You would feel a sense of relief, a sense of contentment and ease insha'Allah.
Turkey loves Israel and Israel loves Turkey. But of course there could be minor tensions from time to time. Conflicts might occur even in between fathers and sons sometimes. But fathers love their sons and sons love their fathers. Turkey and Israel are always on good terms and they will always remain like that. Nothing on the contrary will ever happen.
Turkey always follows a very rational, very reasonable policy. I mean Turkish government would never adopt an irrational attitude that would put a slur on our history. That is because in Turkey there is a state culture that comes from the Ottoman times; they do everything in consultation and act reasonably. Turkey would never do crazy things. Turkey is always dignified, sensible and reasonable. She would never adopt an immature attitude.
We are in a geography where nations are merged, where nations are mingled. An attitude that is inclusive, that embraces everyone, that loves everyone and that aims to save everyone and distribute goodness to everyone would be the right attitude. That is the attitude which is in compliance with good conscience. That is what is right.
What is the characteristic of the system of the Dajjal? It's blindness. As a matter of fact, it is called the blind dajjal. What is the characteristic of the blind dajjal? He sees the truth yet pretends not to have seen it. He sees what is wrong and pretends not to have seen it. But if a person accepts the truth sincerely when he sees it; that shows his superiority.
Our Roman brothers and sisters are very sweet people. Their moral disposition is nice and their art is nice. Anything that would corrupt their nature should be avoided. It would be great for them to live in houses with gardens in an environment in which they can perform their music as ever they like.
If Mahdi and his students sincerely put an end to idolatry, God promises in Surat An-Nur verse 55 that He will make Islam prevail in the world. God says; "I will give you security, in place of your fear” “I will firmly establish your religion for you in all respects all through the world. But you should not ascribe partners to Me, that is all I ask from you," God says.
Even though it is absolutely easy to stop the production of weapons world wide, they are trying to show it as if it is too hard. The money spent on weapons and bombs should actually be distributed to those in need and to orphans. Instead of droping down bombs with jets they should throw chocolates to children.
For every man of cause, the hypocrites are created inside his brain. You wouldn't know the body of a person outside. You are just responsible of knowing what you are shown. For instance when a child dies the child inside your brain dies. You wouldn't know about the child outside. That is the Knowledge of God. That is the Innate Knowledge, I mean that is the Secret Knowledge.
Muslims love for each other is a religious obligation defined in the Qur'an. Almighty God brings some from the land, some from the air and some from the sea to serve. Those in the air wouldn't be hostile to those in the land and those in the land would not be hostile to those in the sea. All of them are the lions of God. All of them are valuable.
I would not let anyone say anything against the Jews. I will not let anyone say anything against Israel. But if there is anything abnormal, if something inhumane takes place I would intervene. Being Jewish means being compassionate, being Jewish means being merciful, being lenient; it means being loving, forgiving, it means being good mannered. Being Jewish means fearing God.
It is crucially important for our brothers and sisters to pray during their house talks. A brother of ours stands and prays and others say "Amen" altogether. It is very important that they get together very day and read from our books or read verses from the Qur'an and tell each other facts leading to faith.
When one praises God, when one takes refuge in God, his mind would become sharper and clearer. Otherwise a person's brain will get numb and become abnormal. When one praises God, when one prays to God, the pressure in that person's mind will be relieved. Otherwise mind would shut down. Reason would be lost. One would become crazy.
An Islamic Union will be realized within Turkey. We will not let anyone disintegrate Turkey. We will not leave our brothers in the South East in the hands of Stalinist communists, of PKK. We will not let our mothers and sisters living there be pillaged by communists. They should not act like a bully in vain. They will have to desist from those vain attempts.
The portents of the End Times are explained in the Qur'an sometimes in a concealed and sometimes in an explicit manner. God refers to the End Times when He mentions disintegrated Muslims. That is because ever since the time of our Prophet (saas), this is the first time Muslims are divided into this many religious orders, groups and communities.
Our PM Tayyip Erdoğan is a good man. Our Minister of Foreign Affairs is a very god man. So is the Undersecretary of MIT and our Minister of Justice. That is a very good team. They are supported by God. They are going on well that is because they are acting in line with the system of the Mahdi, in line with the Islamic Union.
No one can say anything bad about Mr. Hakan Fidan. He is on the right path. That is nice. He is working on a reasonable line asking for the Union of Islam, desiring the Turkish Islamic Union. If there are people jealous of him, their jealousy would bring abundance to him. He should keep his heart at ease. Nothing bad will happen, insha'Allah.
About the Last Day, I am repeating this once more, 2120! They should write this on a stone and they won't be able to see that writing on 2121. Everything will all turn into dust. In the Qur'an Almighty God says "And the earth and the mountains are lifted and crushed with a single blow." [Surat Al-Haqqah: 14] They will see this.
The Qur'an is very pure and simple. There are repetitions in almost more than half of the Quran. That is for people to grasp the meaning very well. Consequently God explains us the orderly and simple rules of reason in the Qur'an. Implementing all that are explained in the Qur'an would make us very reasonable and very coherent.
Women are very gentile and kind beings. There are carnations in the gardens and they need to be looked after very meticulously. Or else they would die away instantly. That is the same with women, you need to pay attention to everything about them. For them to be spiritually and physically perfect they should be looked after even more meticulously than the flowers.
If we were to say; "Why are you adorned like this? Why are you colored? Why are you full of colors? Why do you smell beautiful like this?" to the flowers, would that be logical? That shouldn't be asked to a woman either. "Why are you beautiful like this?" Do you want them to be ugly? Of course they will be beautiful.
God knows what to do. Do not attempt to teach mercy to God, may God forbid. God is the One Who teaches you what mercy is. God is the One Who teaches you what compassion is. You wouldn't have known mercy or compassion if God hadn't taught you about those anyway. God teaches you all those and you attempt to make comments about God - may God forbid- with what God shows you. God is the One Who shows you everything, second by second.
They make a great fuss if ladies open their hair or their arms somehow. And they say that it is because they are attractive… If a person has ill-intentions, if a person is sick in mind, if there is a deviation in one's soul, if he does not have the will-power; it wouldn't matter for that person anyway. It wouldn't matter if it is a child or a woman or a man he is looking at. That is a matter of faith, a matter of belief, a matter of character.
They cannot attain anything with jealousy. As they feel jealous, God increases His blessings upon Muslims even more. And He takes away the blessings those jealous ones have.. He makes them even more scrunched, more scorched as time passes. They become even more introverted, they feel depressed, they turn into loveless, compassionless, affectionless, heartless sick people with no profundity, may God forbid.
God bestows bad-tempered, grumpy, snappish people whom everyone hates upon those people with darkened hearts. And He bestows loving, radiant people whose hearts are full of love and compassion to Muslims, to people with beautiful manners, to people who love others. That is how it is in this world and that is how it will be in the Heaven.
Envying something means being pleased with what a brother/sister has and longing to have the same blessing. On the other hand being jealous means, wanting the other one to be devoid of that blessing so that one could have it instead. In that regard envying something is a nice feeling, a nice attitude.
The logic behind the oppression ladies are put through is horrible. They wear low neck dresses and that is regarded as an offense; they use headscarves and that is regarded as an offense; they wear hijabs and that is regarded as an offense as well. Whatever they do it is seen as an offense. And that is one of the troubles, one of the diseases that would go away in the time of the Mahdi.
In the End Times, there will be people like the People of the Cave. The Prophet Jesus Messiah (pbuh) will be among them as well. There will be people who do not know their past; there will be may be ten, may be 15, may be 20 such people, with no family and no past. And we will realize that one of them is the Jesus Messiah (pbuh) and we will understand that some of them are the People of the Cave.
2000 years has passed yet when the Jesus Messiah wakes up he would think that the Roman soldiers are at the door. He would think that he just dozed off for a second. Yet in the meantime he had been raised to the Presence of God in a thousand years and been sent back to the world in another thousand years.
In the Qur'an God has drawn attention to the relativity of a thousand years. Jesus Messiah has been raised to the Presence of God in a thousand years and came back from the Presence of God in another thousand years. But that is as long as a blink of an eye. The Prophet Jesus (pbuh) closed his eyes, been raised to the Presence of God, opened his eyes and been sent back to the world. That is it.
There will not be another earthquake in Istanbul until Hijri 1506, insha'Allah. After Hijri 1506 it will be like hell until Hijri 1545 anyway. There will be earthquakes, disasters, troubles, civil wars, coups. There will be a fascist uprising and a communist uprising and that will cover the whole world. There will be a blood bath.
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 Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will be concealed, Mahdi (pbuh) will be more out in the open. That is because the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) would not be communicating religion openly. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will be openly and apparently victorious and Jesus Messiah will be secretly victorious. He would not conduct his activities openly as he would then attract attention. But he should be currently active in politics.
The right wing brings abundance to Turkey, it brings about light. The Felicity party, Great Unity Party and MHP are the cornerstones of Turkey. They are the cement of Turkey. Destroying them would never be acceptable. The same is valid for religious orders and communities; Naqshbandi, Qadiriyya and others are the cement of Turkey.
When you say Insha'Allah, abundance comes upon you. The invocation Insha'Allah is the light of destiny. It brings happiness to hearts and abundance to incidents. The invocations "Insha'Allah" and "Masha'Allah" are the key words, codes of the world dominion and the Unity of Islam. Those who say Insha'Allah, Masha'Allah all the time will rule the world.
For an invincible country like the US, becoming helpless and the state going bankrupt, is a portent of the appearance of the Mahdi and a portent of Jesus Messiah being on his duty. God does that specifically for them to turn their faces to God. Almighty God does that to show the importance of love, mercy and compassion.
We find reason and wisdom with the Qur'an. There is the mindset of communism, the mindset of fascism, there is the mindset of the Qur'an and there is a psychopathic mindset. All those have their own logic. But what should be understood from wisdom, from reason is different: we call a consistent person who has mercy, compassion, reason stemming from the Qur'an and who acts with his good conscience a reasonable, wise person.
If Kurdish becomes the official language in that region that would come to mean, may God forbid, separating Turkey. It is as clear as this; it means you want to separate their culture, separate everything about them. If you demand that Turkish people should be governed by Turkish, Kurdish by Kurdish, Circassian by Circassian, that would make Turkey shattered into pieces.
Anyone who wants to learn Kurdish can learn Kurdish as a course. But if there is a determination among some people to prevent our brothers and sisters living in the South East of Turkey learn to speak Turkish; if they say; "you will only be learning and speaking Kurdish" that would be an insincere, ill-intentioned move. And it is apparently a separatist act.
The earthquakes are the stamps of the system of the Mahdi. Almighty God says; "Turn to God or I will constantly shake this world like this. You should turn to Me, You should love Me, that is what I want from you. Or else I will make life unbearable for you." That is what is intended to be said by earthquakes.
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.
There is a communist regime in Iran. A cover of Islam is being put over it; a cover of Muslims is being put over that regime. They are almost mocking religion- may God forbid. They have an expectation of a ghostly Mahdi. And they are keeping the communist system up and alive. They have formed a communist alliance with China and Russia.
Far from being in conflict, according to the Qur'an Muslims should be like a well-built wall like a firm and compact Wall. They should be in such a close ranks. For instance we see a bridge and we see well-built stones firmly resting one over the other and you cannot pull any one of them apart. God says; "Without ever being separated from each other, without even letting one of those stones pulled away, strive in the Path of God in closely built ranks." He tells us "not to be separated from each other and not to get in conflicts with each other."
We will not let a communist-Stalinist Kurdish state be established in the Southeast of Turkey. We will not let it become a separate land. Why not? Because they are our mothers, our sisters, our brothers. We would not leave them to the hands of Stalinists and communists. We would stand against that at the risk of our own lives.
God likes compassion, mercy. Love is the basic characteristic of a Muslim. We say; "God is Al-Ghafur [The Most Forgiving] and Ar-Rahim [The Merciful]." We say "Bismillahir Ar-Rahman Ar-Raheem." Ar-Rahman and Ar-Raheem.. What does Ar-Raheem mean? The Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate. Muslims should also embrace these Beautiful Names of God.
They will never accept Turkey in the European Union. That is because there is anti-Christianity, there is anti-Judaism, there is an anti-semite mindset in some of the people. Many people are against music, many are against dancing, against bare-headed women, against make-up, many are against well-groomed ladies. That will only be changed with the spirit of the system of the Mahdi.
The Union of Islam will be one with the Christians, it will be one with the spirit of the system of the Mahdi it will have the spirit of the Moschiah, it will have the spirit of the Messiah. That is the Union of Islam Bediuzzaman has mentioned, that is what our Prophet (saas) told us about. This union will be the source of happiness, peace and joy.
God is the One Who educates children. Just like it was in the story of the Prophet Ishmael (pbuh), just like it was in the story of the Prophet Joseph (pbuh). Children are tested as well. God tests them with hardships and with ease as well so that they would be reminded by Him when they grow up. Being reminded by Him is a condition of this test anyway.
Goodness and compassion is hard. Mercy and love is hard. But offending and destroying is very easy. One goes and takes a rifle in his hand and shoots at people. That is it. But loving demands effort, it demands patience. It requires will power, it requires generosity, it requires determination at the highest level, it requires perseverance at the highest level.
With the earthquakes, Almighty God gives a message saying; "I am creating light earthquakes, but I can raze you to the ground if I like. I am doing this because of My compassion for you, but you are to give your attention to Me, you are to give your love to Me and do not be engrossed in by this world."
How could a Muslim ever drink vine with one's eyes open? It would get stuck in his/her throat and he/she wouldn't be able to do it even if he/she wants to. Adultery paralyzes a Muslim. He/she would feel his/her hands and feet tied, he/she wouldn't be able to cope with it. A Muslim wouldn't have the strength to commit a sin knowingly. His/her sight would be lost and he/she cannot bring his/herself to do it, insha'Allah.
In the time of our Prophet (saas) there was Buddhism, there were all kinds of mischief. There was irreligiousness, there was idolatry. The dissension was not eliminated. What Mahdi (pbuh) would do is to annihilate the mischief in his own time. The verse that states; "Strive until there is no more dissension and the religion is God's alone," means the whole world would become Muslims.
The Qur'an is interpenetrated with reason. The Qur'an equals reason, reason equals the Qur'an. The Qur'an is pure reason. It is the guide, the way to be reasonable. One would become reasonable with the Qur'an. It is not possible in any way other than the Qur'an. One might be intelligent but cannot be clever and reasonable without it.
A Muslim should apologize when he makes a mistake. God likes this behavior. That is an attitude God approves. Those who are after the approval of God should do this. They should say; "My Lord, forgive me for what I've done." They should say; "Astagfirullah, Astagfirullah, Astagfirullah." God sees this as a beauty.
Struggling against immaculate, faithful Muslims, bullying them- I am saying this for some certain people- just because they might seem to be easier would bring about direness. God protects the inoffensive, wronged ones and nothing happens to those people. But wrongdoers should beware of what is to come upon them insha'Allah.
The laws and the legal system aim to bring forth beautiful and beneficial people. Legal system is a blessing to prevent all kinds of harms. We've seen the good in it. For instance Fazıl Say no longer says any inappropriate things against people, he avoids making indecorous statements. His statements are much more decent and much more appropriate now and that is a good thing. This means the law has had a positive effect on him.
The police should concentrate their attention on their real opponents, not on the friends of the police. They should not concentrate on the friends of this homeland, of this people. Because we are in the End Times the safe ones are known as traitors and traitors are known to be the safe ones as stated in the hadiths of our Prophet (saas). Our Police should go against the traitors not against the good people.
Police should concentrate on necessary and important things, not on trivial, unimportant things. Their concentration should not be on unnecessary, vain and meaningless matters. We need to avoid distracting their attention. Their attention should directly be on the evil people, on the cruel persecutors.
People's eyes cannot take it if various abnormal attitudes pile up one over the other, brain cannot handle that, cells cannot take it. I look at such people and see that their cells rise against these abnormalities. Their flesh becomes scourged and their glances become disconcerted. Their voices and their logics become distorted as well.
I look at people in the streets and see that their eyes are all empty. Why is that? It is because they have jealousy on one side, cruelty on the other; they have lovelessness on one side and fear from others on the other; they fail to submit to God on one side, and they have a competitive soul on the other.
Freemasonry has been founded to help Shiloh, to help Mosciah ever since the beginning, in the time of the Prophet Solomon (pbuh). 4000 years later, 5000 years later they are entering into the service of the Mahdi right now. And they are charged to help Jesus Messiah, to help the Mahdi. This is what their real duty is.
We will rebuild the prayer house of the Prophet Solomon (pbuh). We will rebuild the exact replica of the Prophet Solomon's palace as well and we will certainly find the Holy Ark. We will find the holy relics inside the Holy Ark. With the finding of the Holy Ark there will be no one who doesn't have faith in the world.
Cheap computers can be distributed to the public. The internet is an open ocean. There is the possibility to reach trillions, billions, millions of information through the internet. With the internet we enable the people to access the greatest university, the greatest encyclopedia of the world. We kindly ask our Prime Minister to open the way for this.
The most crucial matter is education. And the most important part of it is gained through the internet which is a public university. It enables everyone to become a registered student in that university. So we kindly ask our dear Prime Minister to remove the quota restrictions upon the internet usage.
What is dazzling is that I am the only one who became a Mason without ever stepping foot into a Masonic lodge, as a 33rd degree Grand Master. There is no other example in the history of Freemasonry. They give the highest 32nd degree. This is the first time they deemed it suitable to give 33rd degree, and they gave it to me. There is good in that, there is wisdom in that, insha'Allah.
The best thing to do is to unite the Islamic world and to make sure that they elect a leader for themselves and turn this world into a Heaven on earth so that they will respect people from all walks of life, that they will turn this world into a sea of happiness by leading the world in a way that everyone can live together happily.
Now we have the means to enter the Freemasonic lodges as we like. We can attend to Masonic conventions and all other meetings we like… And we have the possibility of entering those meetings as the Grand Master. That will give us wide scaled opportunity to carry out activities to preach religion to the Masons insha'Allah.
Time is more precious than gold, it is far more important. One should use time with all his might. Instead of watching TV series for 4 hours, for 5 hours, increase your general culture, increase your knowledge, help people, clean your surroundings, make yourself high quality. Attach importance to aesthetics, science and arts, give importance to them.
We may be constantly experiencing miracles but only those who think could become aware of them. God has set a special trap for those who do not think, He has set a trap with the reasons. Some are suffocated inside those reasons and fail to see the truth. They imagine that they are walking about by themselves, in fact God is the One Who makes them walk, they want to go to somewhere but God is the One Who takes them there.
A person falls ill from his arm and he constantly goes to medicine. But why do you not also pray for it? Make your prayers, medicine is just a vehicle, what does it have to do with medicine? Know that God is the One Who created medicine, be aware that medicine is only used as a prayer and apart from that simply pray for the cure.
Praying is being in a constant connection with God. God approves prayers, God loves prayers. That is explicitly stated in the Qur'an. That is because it forges a connection with Him. Christians are very well aware of this secret and they enjoy the taste of it. So God accepts their prayers. That is a very crucial matter.
I am a 33rd degree Freemason. I now have the right to enter the freemasonic lodges. I do have the right to enter the lodges in the States and in Europe, I have the right to enter the lodges all around. And I have the right to enter these lodges as the Grand Master. I have to right to give conferences and have talks as the Grand Master. I wouldn't be able to enter these lodges without being a Freemason, I wouldn't have the means to communicate religion under their roof if I were not a Freemason.
The Bediuzzaman says; "the East will be strengthened only with religion." No country has ever gained power through philosophy. That has always been attained with religion. The same is valid with Christians as well; in Europe they have always gained strength with religion. Also the Jews; they have always gained strength with religion. The only reason for the strength of Jews in this world is the Torah.
The miracles of our Prophet (saas) that have been realized in the End Times are being concealed. If the headlines of a well-recognized newspaper, a newspaper in Europe, the Guardian for instance were to read; "How did the Prophet Mohammad (saas) foretell the comet with two horns?" even with that millions billions of people would start to believe.
With the appearance of the Mahdi, some scholars stopped talking about the system of the system of the Mahdi and the system of the antichrist (dajjal). In their own mind they are trying to conceal the system of the Mahdi. They are in a very pathetic fluttering. Future generations will refer to this muteness and insincerity of the scholars in astonishment.
Some of the scholars are attempting to hide that the incidents our Prophet (saas) foretold in his hadiths have been realized. Science world would have sprung to their feet if they knew that all the incidents happened exactly as our Prophet foretold in his hadiths. However none of the scholars are making that an agenda.
It is needless for atheists to be troubled with criticisms. I am merely showing an effort for those atheist friends to go to the Heaven as well. I want them to have a peaceful and comfortable life. Normally I could have completely ignored them but we are the only ones among religious circles who approach atheists and communists with compassion.
"Heavens and earth..." Animals, plants, microbes, bacteria, everything on earth should be analyzed. And everything should be analyzed in the Heavens, including meteors. The structure of the crust of the earth should be analyzed. God ordained this upon Muslims. We understand in hundreds of verses that science has been ordained on people.
There is no time on the outside, there is one single moment. And that infinitely short time is called a moment. Within infinitely short period of time, God has created an infinitely long period of time. That is destiny. It is the faith in your mind. You have done and finished with everything in an infinitely short period of time.
God would take away the foresight and perception of a person who is stealthy, skeptical, dark, ill-intentioned, dishonest, one that has malice in his heart, one who does not want the goodness of others, one who does not feel any inclination towards love in his heart. Such a person would start making incoherent movements. His glances would become distorted, his speech would become distorted, his reasoning would become disrupted. God would put obstacles in front of him and bring about exiguousness.
God is the One Who creates wisdom and wisdom is created every single moment. It has a constant flow, it does not remain stagnant inside the brain. People presume that wisdom can be preserved as if it is put inside a cube; actually that is not true. It is completely empty inside the brain. Wisdom constantly flows like a river, it is made to flow by God.
Religiously unlawful acts put people in distress. It would tear them into pieces. Knowing that something is religiously unlawful, it would not be possible to do it carefree. But because weakness of faith makes a person's body paralyzed, because it makes the flesh rot away, such a person would not be affected by it and would easily do unlawful acts. Actually it is impossible for an alive and fresh mind and body to do something religiously unlawful. A person can only do unlawful things if he is dead inside. A lively person would never be able to do that as it would be an unbearable pain for him. That is not something that a Muslim could ever do.
Worldly business can only have a meaning if they are done for the good pleasure of God. Muslims are disturbed by the unlawful acts, they make Muslims paralyzed and Muslims are unable to do such acts. But if a person is weak in mind and in faith, such a person does not mind if an act is religiously unlawful or not.
We are sent to this world to serve God, to serve religion. We are sent here to experience good morality, love and loyalty. Those who are after worldly interests are living in a parasitic mindset. Actually in that sense, no one would ever die of hunger or sleeplessness. A Muslim would never covet any worldly interests. He would submit himself wholly to God.
God designs the world according to the system of the Mahdi. Syria is being designed for the system of the Mahdi, Egypt is also being designed for the system of the Mahdi, Iraq is being designed for that as well. Afghanistan, Turkey and all other countries are being designed according to the system of the Mahdi.
I would never allow anyone destroy the children of the Prophet Abraham (pbuh). I would never let any harm on neither the children of Ishmael, or on the children of Jacob. They should not struggle in vain. There are only a handful of children of Israel. Some people want to wipe them off the face of this world. We would never let that happen.
There is an amazing, a wondrous nobility, a miraculous quality on Prophets. There is more or less vulgarity, ordinariness in ordinary people. They have a covet for worldly things, I mean even if it is scarce, they have such tendencies. But that is never the case in Prophets, they never have such lowly attitudes. That is how they are recognized as Prophets anyway,

Have a look at those who are jealous, you'll see that they are all very repulsive, very ugly people. Have a look at those who are envied, you'll see that they are very beautiful and radiant. God increases their beauty as people feel green in jealousy. God makes them healthier and prolongs their lives. He takes from those jealous ones and gives to those who are envied. God takes their light and give it to the envied ones. God takes all that is good from them. And if those who are envied have a disease or something, God takes that away from them and give it to those who are green in jealousy. That is the law of God. Almighty God has such a method of punishing.
By 2020's, 2021's the world will turn into such a state that they will fail to think about any other solution. They will be in desperate straits. They will regard the system of the Mahdi as the only way out and they will embrace it beseechingly. Mahdi (pbuh) will not have claims, they will beseechingly make Mahdi (pbuh) their leader, insha'Allah.
It would be very wrong to adopt an exclusion policy. Even if they are pro-coup, people should be talked to and indoctrinated about what is correct. Exclusion is not compliant with spirit of the system of the Mahdi. Saving everyone is the right thing to do and it is the one compliant with the system of the Mahdi.
People are all after their own problems. The system of the Mahdi will do away this scourge, this lovelessness. But Almighty God is first showing the world what pain, lovelessness and cruelty means so that they can understand the difference and appreciate the value and the preciousness of the system of the Mahdi.
In the end, the system of the Mahdi will wrap the whole Islamic world. That is a destiny progressing for centuries and now we've come to the final point. In the destiny, the sense of honor for Islam is about to burst, it is about to have an outbreak in all Islamic countries. The system of the Mahdi is a beautiful end, insha'Allah.
God is giving a design to the world. He is preparing Syria, He is preparing Iraq, He is preparing Israel and Turkey, He is preparing everywhere. The whole world is getting prepared for the coming of their guests, fort he coming of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). It is like the preparation of a feast.
No result can be attained with a military air intervention to Syria. The best thing to do is to evacuate the public from there. That is the soundest method. Syrian people should cross the border to take refuge in the surrounding countries. They can return to their countries when the regime is changed. They should not worry at all; Syria belongs to Syrian people.
Our nation behaves with religion and lives with religion. Without religion there is no meaning to life. There is no meaning to living. Without religion why would we want to live anyway? What meaning would life have then? The only reason for living is religion, Hereafter, love for God. Without love of God, without belief in Hereafter there is no meaning to life.
What did they[unbelievers] say about the Prophets? They said that they are "mad" and they called them "liars". They used to attack them and swear at them. We are on their path as well, we are their ummah, we are the ummah of our Prophet (saas). We are the children of the Prophet Abraham (pbuh), we are the children of the Prophet Jesus Messiah (pbuh). Consequently we will go through the same ordeals and suffer the same pains.
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.
They keep saying; "let the Christian world unite and save Muslims." Note that they never say; "let the Islamic world unite." When we mention the Islamic Union they say; "it is not possible, they cannot unite." Well, if it is possible for the Christian world to unite, why is it not possible for Muslims to unite?"
The pain and the sufferings will increase even further, Muslims will say;"enough is enough!" and they will find the Mahdi (pbuh). They will ask Mahdi (pbuh) to be the leader of the ummah. Mahdi (pbuh) will not accept in the beginning. They will say; "the ummah is in a sea of blood, you've got to accept this. If you don't, all their blood will be on your head." In this way, they will pledge allegiance to the Mahdi (pbuh) even though he does not want it.
Saying; "Save [only] Egypt!" isn't acceptable. Saying "Save [only] Palestine!" is not acceptable. You've got to say; "Let Muslims unite!" You've got to ask for the salvation of the whole Islamic world and ask for the salvation of whole humanity. That will be a salvation for whole humanity under the leadership of Muslims. Let Russia be saved, let China be saved as well; let all of them be saved. We cannot develop an egoistic point of view.
Kicking up a row in Islamic countries is the easiest thing to do right now. That is because they have put aside love and affection and indoctrinated hatred. They have numbed their minds with Darwinist-materialist education, they have brought about a completely different, aberrant understanding of religion with idolatry and radicalism, they have taken Islam, the Qur'an from their hand and created insane societies. Mahdi (pbuh) is the doctor for the cure of this infliction.
Those who do not want Muslims to unite should feel the responsibility of the children martyred all around the world. The sentence of those who do not talk about the Unity of Islam would be very harsh in the Sight of God. They should fear God. Had they established the Unity of Islam, these scourges wouldn't be casted upon them.
We ask our PM Mr. Tayyip Erdoğan to remove all restrictions such as applying quotas to internet, etc. Let us be free, let us access wherever we like on the internet. Let there be no restrictions of access. There should be wireless internet access all over Turkey. And it should be free wherever we are. Those who turn their computers on should automatically have an internet access.
God is the One Who defines morality. God is the One Who teaches people morality. We know morality because God taught us. It would be a grave witlessness to try to – may God forbid- teach morality to God. May God forbid, it is completely unacceptable to attempt to teach religion to God and to the Qur'an.
God tells us that He would accept the repentance of even the Pharaoh if he repents. The door for repentance would never be closed for anyone alive. We are responsible to call all sinners to repent. Repentance is acceptable for all sorts of sins. Saying "it wouldn't be acceptable for this or that person" would reflect a very loveless point of view and is not correct anyway.
Humble and inoffensive ones will always win. The Ikhwan will not lose anything simply by assuming a humble attitude. They should embrace all walks of life within the society. They can govern the country together with people of all faiths, with people of all opinions, by forming a structure like a coalition. It would be very wrong to appear as confrontational, aggressive and stubborn structure.
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.
It is obvious how crucial it is for Muslims to have a leader. But some people fail to understand because their foresight is closed. In the coming days God will open the foresight of people insha'Allah. Our Lord will open their insight and they will instantly perceive the importance of the Unity of Islam, the importance of having a leader heading Muslims.
Following all these sufferings a beautiful light, a radiance will prevail in the world insha'Allah. May God give us those beautiful days as soon as possible. May God make me and you as well, all of us students to the Mahdi. May God give us a beautiful system that would bring peace to the whole world.
Jews and Christians believe in Allah. Of course we love them. And we feel compassion towards atheists as well. Furthermore we, as Muslims, find ourselves to blame and think; "this means that we haven't been able to reach as many people as we should; so we should communicate religion even more, we should preach religion."
God creates a lot of details just to enliven life, to bring color to life. For instance trees are created to adorn and bring color to life. Various incidents are created to bring about beauty and dynamism. God is the One Who creates satan and He is the One Who gives him that power. That is because opposites bring about dynamism and color in the world.
There were those who were willing to fall in a dispute – may God forbid- with our Prophet for whom God says "My Beloved", even those who –may God forbid- attempted to give a piece of their false minds to him. Actually any attitude, other than obedience, is unacceptable towards a Prophet who receives revelation.
There is a weird apathy upon those people who see death as distant. Such people keep themselves only busy with their own business, their own family, their own food and drinks, etc. They display a very timid attitude in defending and communicating what is right. Actually death is very near to every person. One should be in a sincere effort for the good pleasure of God.
US and Europe very recently realized that the solution lies with the system of the Mahdi. They very recently realized that Islam as lived in the time of the Companions of our Prophet (saas) will be the solution. Europe will support the system of the Mahdi with all its might in the very near future. That is because they have no other solution. America will support the system of the Mahdi with all its might as well. Israel is already supporting the system of the Mahdi.
The sufferings upon Muslims will continue like this day and night so long as the Unity of Islam is not established. If Muslims do not accept the Unity of Islam these sufferings, these pains will continue like this day and night. When they embrace the system of the Mahdi, when they embrace Jesus Messiah and the Unity of Islam, when they hang on to the Qur'an whole persecution will come to an end. It would end instantly at that moment. Insha'Allah.
Being laical means wanting peace for everyone. A person who wants everyone to be happy is called laical. That is because if one says; "let the irreligious people and the religious ones be happy. Let Christians, Jews be happy, let everyone be happy," that person is a laical person. If you say "No, I am the only one to be happy," that means you are not laical.
Heaven is very similar to this world but it is much more modern and high quality. The mansions in the Heaven are made of glass and they remain up in the air. When you say "come" to the food in the Heaven, they come by you. God creates millions of details for people to take pleasure. But the beauty that gives most pleasure in the Heaven is God Himself manifesting and greeting the people of the Heaven.
Love is the basic characteristic of man. Let us love people, let us love animals, let us love plants and before all else, let us love God. Let us love those God created. Let us feel compassion to those who do not share our faith. Let us be kind to them. That is how this world will be saved. There is no salvation other than that. Or else God will turn this world into a living Hell and He is doing that.
Salvation of Egypt cannot be attained through elections; it can only be attained through Islamic Union. There is no solution apart from the Unity of Islam, the politicians should see this truth. Apart from the Unity of Islam, all other initiatives are like superficial remedies. Yet with the Unity of Islam all these sufferings will remain in history.
It is very easy to not to go to Hell; you have got to love God, you've got to fear God. God says; "I have given this world to you. Eat, drink, have fun, love, play, dance as ever you like." What does God's saying "I have given this world to you," mean? It is God saying; "This is yours, do whatever you like." There are a handful of forbidden things; they are only a handful.
The most beautiful, the sweetest, the most positive and the truest of everything; that is religion. If you ask what is the best of everything; that is religion. Beautiful words, beautiful clothes, beautiful speeches, beautiful food, beautiful houses, beautiful streets, beautiful flowers, beautiful women… The most beautiful of everything.. Masha'Allah.
Our Master Bediuzzaman Said Nursi is a very sweet scholar. I mean he is the greatest scholar of the last 1000 years. If we have such a peaceful environment in Turkey, if there is such a reasonable understanding of Islam in the Islamic Union, if Muslims are against anarchy and terror; it is all because of Bediuzzaman.
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.
There is music in the Heaven. God gives that in our hearts as a pleasant feeling. All our people have fun, they all dance, they all laugh and play music. Yet that is a mistake according to radicals. Music is a blessing; music is an immaculate beauty. It is an amazing beauty that polishes the human soul and refreshes the human heart. There is music everywhere even in birds, even in waterfalls.
There is a tendency to boredom in the human nature, in the human soul in proportion with that person's faith. However a Muslim would not be bored, would not feel weary of love, a Muslim would not feel weary of beauty and affection insha'Allah. For instance Muslims get bored from empty talks, from monotonic approaches. They search richness, I mean they want novelties, they want beauties.
One can never be bored of love or affection; one can never be tired of the love of God. However the feeling of weariness, boredom exists in the human soul. Muslims are able to overcome this feeling with their faith. For that reason an ordinary man gets tired of his wife, from his beloved ones but a Muslim would not because of their faith. However in disbelief, weariness enwraps a person very easily. With the power of faith weariness is crashed. It can be crashed in proportion to that person's faith.
One should approach God by praising, by giving glory to God. We should increase our thanks to God. When that is increased, the blessings bestowed upon one would increase as well. How does that work? God does that without making it felt. The more you send your thanks to God; the more the blessings bestowed upon you increases. All increase from aspects you do not know of, from aspects you cannot even think of.
MHP (Nationalist Movement Party) has the strength enough to handle both the PKK danger and the danger of a communist uprising a hundred times on its own. MHP - I am putting an emphasis on this- has the strength enough to handle both the PKK danger and the danger of a communist uprising a hundred times on its own. Everywhere, on the air, in land and in the sea.
Even if they are in China, even if they are in the farthest parts of the world, Muslims are one big family. You have to take care of every single one of them, you are responsible from every single one of them. In the Qur'an God says; "And those who, when an oppressive wrong is inflicted on them, (are not cowed but) help and defend themselves." That is a command of God.
There could be doubts; a great majority of Muslims might have doubts. Doubts would not make one abandon religion. They are called people of faith because they resist those doubts. Doubts come upon them as well, but Muslims fight it off with their minds and do not accept them. That is the reason why they are called the people of faith. I mean those who resist doubts; those who resist the doubts inspired by the satan and by their own lower-selves are called Muslims.
If a person is in disbelief, everything he does would be a malice for him. He eats food and that becomes malicious for him; he goes out to the streets and that becomes malicious for him; whatever he does brings about malice. There would be no benevolence for him. If a person is sincere and devout, if he has a clean heart, there would be goodness in everything he does.
The origin of the disaster Egypt is facing is a thousand of their 1001 books. This scourge would have not landed on them if they were to abide by one single book. This scourge came upon them because they abided by a thousand and one books. For instance this is the origin of the hatred towards Jews, that is the origin of the hatred towards Christians as well.
Alevis are very dear and they are very devout people. First of all their souls are very open to love and arts. Think how enthusiastic the love of God would be in a person whose soul is open to arts and love. Because they love God fervently, they feel love for arts and they are in love with the Prophet (saas), they are in love with Hazrat Ali (ra). Alevis are the ornaments of Turkey, they are the ornaments of this world, they are such radiant people.
A person who fails to see the artistry in women, who fails to see the manifestation of God's beauty in women, would be closed to arts anyway. Such a person loses all his artistic power. I mean which beauty can a person like that see? How could such a person perceive the beauty of a flower? How could he see the beauty of scenery? If one fails to see the beauty in women, then it is over, such a person has nothing.
There cannot be a world without women, there cannot be a Heaven without women. The world is beautiful with women. Heaven is beautiful with women as well. Women are the most beautiful creatures of this world. And the most beautiful being in the Heaven, I mean except for God, is woman as the manifestation of God's beauty insha'Allah.
Establishing unity and togetherness is one of my goals. Is there anyone else who loves other religious denominations and other religions as much as I do? Is there anyone else who shows this much love to Jews, who shows this much love to the Christians, is there anyone else who hold Alevis high esteem and who holds Shias and Wahhabis in high esteem?
Those who love Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) would also love our Prophet (saas). If one loves our Prophet (saas), he should also love Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). Our Prophet (saas) has passed away but Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is a part of him; he is his son. If you love the Prophet(saas) you should take his son alive as basis. And you attempt to make him forgotten that means you do not feel love for our Prophet (saas).
Europe does not invest on people either, they do not educate their people. And then you see people falling into depression because of the spiritual dilemma they feel, because of the spiritual emptiness they have and killing themselves. That is a terrible thing. The world can only be saved from this disaster with the system of the Mahdi, with the compassion of the Prophet Jesus Messiah (pbuh), with complete submission to the Qur'an, Insha'Allah.
People cannot be happy with buildings and stones; they only feel happy with the love of God and with the fear of God. People should know the miracles of the Qur'an, they should know facts leading to faith, they should fall in love with God, they should submit to Allah and only then life will have a meaning.
Egypt is dead right now. Egypt can only be revived with love, with faith, with the miracles of the Qur'an and with facts leading to faith. Egypt can be revived with a policy that would embrace everyone, all their people. It is not possible to have any blessings without the system of the Mahdi, without the love for Jesus Messiah (pbuh).
If in an environment, there is no place for the arts, if there is no love; if there is only pain and horror, if there is destitute, then there would neither be industry, nor wealth, nor joy in that environment. There will be nothing. No matter how much you help them. I mean it would be like giving blood to a corpse. Give a thousand liters if you like, that corpse would not be revived. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), Jesus Messiah (pbuh) and the Unity of Islam are the only way to bring life to that environment. There is no other way.
The anti-woman mindset, the mindset that tries to put women in order should go away. It is not anyone's duty to put women in order. Women are very prone to their honor, to their pride; they are very reasonable beings. They understand the Qur'an very well. Let them be, let them decide about their lives.
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.
The concept of secularity exists in the complete sense in the Qur'an. Secularity as described in the Qur'an should be put into practice. Everyone should be utmost free in their beliefs. The essence is not to intervene in anyone's beliefs. One cannot interfere in the beliefs of an irreligious person, or a religious one, or a mason or a communist or anyone else for that matter. They all are first class citizens.
One should not step outside the Qur'an. May God forbid if you say that the Qur'an is not sufficient, you would be waging a war against God. God says that the Qur'an is "enough" and you say that it is not. God says that He "explained everything in it" and you say "nothing is sufficiently explained in it." You'd thus be challenging the Book of God, may God forbid. If you dare to challenge the Book of Allah, you'd thus be challenging God, may God forbid.
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.
Saying "We've come here with the elections so we will be doing whatever we want" would not work in Egypt either. The demands of all people should be indulged, all of them. If they are communists, their rights should be advocated, if they are devout, their rights should be advocated, if they are Jews, their rights should be advocated. Everyone's rights should be protected, everyone should be protected and watched over; that is the duty of the governments.
Showing compassion to both Israel and Palestine, to the good people of Palestine and the good people of Israel, to the compassionate people of those lands; showing affection to them, behaving warmly to them is a necessity of the morality of Islam. Pushing one aside and putting forth the other would be unbecoming for a Muslim.
If an advisory council is established in Egypt, if they act through a consultation procedure, if they put compassion and love to the forefront, if they put the modern understanding of Islam, the understanding of the companions of our Prophet (saas) to the forefront and if they put forth arts, science, aesthetics and democracy in all its simplicity, Egypt would become a very nice place.
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.
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.
It would be persecution; it would be a horrible thing to see Jews as weak people and to follow a hatred policy against them. Persecution brings about persecution. Approaching a handful of Jews with compassion, with kindness would be one of the very important basic reasons in decreasing that tension in Egypt.
Man would be happy with arts. When one sees another dressed beautifully, he would feel happy; when one sees beautiful houses, he would feel happy. Be it in music, in paintings, in sculptures, people are in search of beauty; people search beauties which would cheer them up in everything. When one sees such things, he would feel happy.
