Science and modern physics should be encouraged immensely. Just like the Qur'an, science is something the verses of God manifest themselves intensely.

2

Science is a method that demonstrates the existence of God. Actually this is the main task of science. Science proves and explains the artistry of God. In the Qur'an Almighty God says that; "only those who are firmly rooted in knowledge, and the Muslims, have faith." Firmly rooted in knowledge are those who fear God.

3

The world is rotating; the world is rotating around the Sun and the Sun is moving inside the Milky Way, inside the vastness of space. It is like we are all in a giant plane yet there is no pilot, there is no connection to the tower. Among the billions of celestial bodies, the Earth goes on without running into anything, without ever shaking us up. That is truly wondrous.

4

One would come to faith if he simply thinks about the human brain. Simply by looking into the life of a spider, you would attain faith. Simply by looking into the life of a bee, you would attain faith. Simply thinking about these things would make one come to believe unconditionally.

5

Our Prophet (saas) is the last Messenger, the last prophet. Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will come back in the End Times, but he will not be bringing a new religion. He simply abides by Islam. I mean he comes as a member of this ummah.

6

God wants a solidified faith; that can only be attained with a sincere soul. It is not possible to attain that without sincere good conscience.

7

Belief in angels, belief in destiny; these should be thought about one by one, pondered upon and settled in one's mind as perfect belief. I mean, a great majority of the public has such beliefs, but they remain as superficial information in their minds; however, settled knowledge could only be formed in devout Muslims. One needs to turn that into settled knowledge.

8

Once one decides on loving God, his horizons would be opened up. The flow of information in his brain would increase. His reasoning and judgment would be opened.

9

Almighty God emphasizes the importance of belief in the Hereafter and Heaven, and of preparing oneself for Heaven. A Muslim should concentrate on that topic and discipline himself in that respect. I mean it should not be blurred information but a clear knowledge. Life and Heaven should constantly be nested in one another.

10

If one thinks about Heaven superficially, his brain could only perceive it superficially and a superficial belief could be formed. But if one concentrates well and, comes to have faith nicely and asks for that information from God insistently, Heaven and the Hereafter will become clear in his mind.

11

God sent ISIS to wipe out the PKK. Are the methods employed by ISIS right? No, they are wrong, but God creates them like that as an affliction cast upon the PKK.

12

People do not devote themselves completely to God; I can see that there is a great mass of people who would abandon religion once it conflicts with their interests. The Mahdi (pbuh), on the other hand, is a person who would always ask for the good pleasure of God even if it conflicts with all his interests. As it is understood from the hadiths, he would withdraw himself from all aspects of social life.

13

A Muslim should carry out serious preparations for Heaven throughout the day and focus on Heaven. One should fear Hell, but should prepare himself thoroughly to the Hereafter. A Muslim should prepare himself for Heaven, not for Hell.

14

A modern, enlightened, loving Islam, that is based on love will prevail in the world. They should not struggle in vain other than that. It is not possible to attain any results without a modern understanding of Islam.

15

Once you get dragged into the swamp of traditionalism it is like a bottomless pit which contaminates you more and more. Radicalism is an affliction that increases incrementally. One says, "I am a radical." The other says, "I am even more radical." They wallow into the most inconceivable filth in competing one another .

16

Islam will appear in the face of this world as an utterly modern, joyous, healthy system, open to science and arts, open to beauty and aesthetics. It will appear like Heaven. Islam will not be an environment full of filth and darkness, causing people to suffer, hanging people, chopping people up, far removed from aesthetics; it will not be an environment in which filthy people are living. God would not harm Islam like that and will not let Muslims harm Islam like that.

17

The world would never accept an understanding of Islam that is incompatible with human nature. First and foremost, God would not accept it: Every time they attempt to bring about such a corrupt, rotten, filthy understanding of religion that reminds one of Hell, God would degrade them, humiliate them, drag them on the ground and ruin them; let me state this openly. They should forget about it.

18

There should be music, there should be paintings, there should be statues, there should be aesthetics; young girls should be able to wander around well-groomed, young men should be able to wander around handsome and glorious. Let everywhere be like an art gallery. Then the whole world would admire Muslims.

19

Quality and aesthetics are the most important topics. They are what embellishes, what beautifies life.

20

I keep saying this insistently; had they advocated the modern understanding of Islam in Egypt, the whole of Europe and the US would have supported them. The whole world would love them, recognizing them as an amazing power as well. One should perform prayers, fast, give alms, make pilgrimage yet they should simply be modern. They resist this.

21

There is no need to get into a direct conflict with their idols. If necessary, one might protect his faith appearing like he is siding with that idol. I mean if there is a danger, if the idol is about to crush him, if it is going to cost him his life, if it will prevent him from living by his religion, one might act as if he is siding with the idols. This is also defined in the Qur'an; one wouldn't be responsible from that.

22

Anywhere God is in – and there is no place He is not- is like Heaven with faith. If one does not believe in God, no matter where he goes, it will be his Hell.

23

They have changed Islam into a pagan, polytheistic system –may God forbid- and the way God uses to bring people into line, to correct their wrong ways is through disasters and scourges, through hunger, wars and terror; God creates a devastating terror for them to change their ways, so they back down from their ways. They, in return hold on more tightly to their idols imagining that their salvation is in those idols. The truth of the matter is that such an attitude is the exact reason why they are in this state.

24

All of the people residing in the region hate the PKK. It is not possible for people to love or respect an aggressor group using violence.

25

Idols have always been hated throughout the course of history. But because they have a unifying impact, they garner a fake respect.

26

Mahdi(pbuh) is a calm, tranquil, gentle person. In the hadith, our Prophet (saas) says that Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will be ruling from his home. He is a teacher of love. He is the one who will ensure that the whole world loves one another.

27

Sound comes into existence from material inside the brain that doesn't exist. There is no sound outside. But out of material, sound comes into existence, light comes into existence; inside the brain, that doesn't exist. There is nothing to be called taste outside. Taste is formed inside the brain. But this is not the brain made up of flesh; it is the brain that is comprised of radiance. We are thinking and talking with the brain made up of radiance.

28

The goal of the US's Great Middle East Project is to stop the system of the Mahdi; that is because the system of the Mahdi is a system that would unite all the Islamic world. The Great Middle East Project, on the other hand, is a system that would break the Islamic world to pieces.

29

The American deep state and the British deep state would object to a MHP-AK Party coalition. Taking all these risks, they need to form this coalition. Such a coalition would be one that would break the back of the US's Great Middle East Project.

30

It seems that the most rational choice is an AK Party- MHP coalition. Nothing could come out of CHP- AK Party coalition. In my opinion, the CHP would get exhausted in such a coalition and so would the AK Party. Both of them would be diminished. It won't be a rational choice.

31

It is important that Turkey focuses on its rocket industry. We kindly ask that from the Ministry of Defense. We should have ten thousand, one hundred thousand rockets. They should have a one thousand km range, two thousand km range, three thousand km range. As a deterrent force, we need to be like Iran.

32

The PKK trains all the youngsters they train to focus on their goal. They have literally withdrawn from all social aspects of life; they only stay focused on their target. This is how our Turkish youth should be. They should stay focused on our national, our spiritual targets. Otherwise, may God forbid, troubles would not cease to rain down on us.

33

Calling a PKK militant “Kurdish” is an insult to Kurdish people. They have lost their Kurdish identity, they have lost their humanity, they have even lost animalistic feelings and have turned into weird creatures.

34

I look at TRT (Turkish Radio Television) and see that they call those anarchists "Kurdish insurgents." Why don't you call them Godless, Bookless, Stalinist, communist PKK? How can you identify them with the Kurds? Would our Kurdish brothers ever act like that? Our Kurdish people are radiant, decent people. By saying so, you are smearing the name of the Kurds.

35

Mercy is where Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is. Compassion is where Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is. We are the most compassionate state in the Middle East. Cruelty runs rampant in the region but compassion is everywhere in our country.

36

Who taught violence to the groups resorting to violence in the region? The PKK: The PKK is the influential grandfather of this ideology, of this way of acting. The PKK is the one who taught everyone how to commit murder, how to kill.

37

Islam cannot be communicated by hanging people and chopping people up. It can only be done with preaching, by endearing people to Islam, by persuading them.

38

The lifespan of every antichrist is 40 years; do not forget that. When the antichrist comes, he wouldn't leave without acting as the antichrist, he wouldn't go without running out of his time.

39

Being afraid of an enemy, being afraid of something is a sign of lack of love for God; it is a sign of being aloof.

40

It is crucial not to leave aside one's love for God pertinaciously.

41

When one hears about those in need, the first thing that comes to his mind is being in need of food, in need of bread. One needs faith, one needs love of God. If you pray, God responds to your prayers. You need love, you need profundity, you need deep love for God.

42

How does one pray when he is harmed somehow? Perfectly. How is one's connection with God? Perfect. How is his respect? Perfect. But he has been harmed with troubles; he is not motivated without those troubles. Why are you waiting for those troubles to hit you? One should constantly be in the state he is when troubles hit him.

43

The best form of resting is – of course we do not do this for God to let us rest, but for the good pleasure of God- is perfect connection with God. There is no rest other than that. I mean one should never weaken his connection with God under no conditions. Saying, "I will put things right later on," is wrong.

44

When one constantly sides with God, his faith would increase. People sometimes tend to abandon God a little and hold on to God from time to time. One should never break off his uninterrupted spiritual connection with God.

45

A great many people rebel against God or expostulate on God. They expostulate, saying, "He doesn't help me, He has taken my son away from me, He has taken my car away from me, He has taken my possessions from me." Who is the One Who gives you your child? God is. Who is the One Who takes him away from you? God is. I mean the expostulation here is very irrational; it is an act far removed from sincerity. God doesn't like such conduct.

46

“Sincerity” is a Word closely connected with the Qur'an. We could not know what sincerity is if we do not know the Qur'an. Sincerity means a person's not applying any pressure on his brain and thinking on the side of God in everything; it means his never expostulating on God- may God forbid, his never being troubled by God or never rebelling against God- may God forbid.

47

God keeps the world on hold by means of the system of the Mahdi right now. That is to say Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is the reason for the delay of the coming of the Last Day.

48

The weakness of faith in people is something God dislikes. When that is the case, God takes away their riches in this world. He gives a general distress, an unrest and discomfort to the whole world. People fail to understand the reason behind that. Actually the reason for the troubles in the world is the dissemination of the weakness of faith in the world.

49

Almighty God always aims for sincere, exalted faith. When Almighty God sees sincere, lofty faith in the world, He increases the abundance on this world: When there is weakness in faith, God reduces that abundance on the world. That is why pure and sincere Muslims should continue this spiritual reinforcement with all their might.

50

Our people, our mothers, our sisters, our brothers in the Southeast are very devout people. Their eyes would be filled with tears when they hear the Name of God. It is not possible for them to trail behind the Godless, Bookless, Stalinist PKK by their own will.

51

Turkey would be lost in a coalition formed with the AK Party and HDP; let me say that much. The AK Party will be zeroed and the HDP will gain great capacity and we would go towards a disaster of epic proportions.

52

The MHP should only demand one ministry and that should be the Ministry of Internal Affairs and that should be it. They should not have any other prerequisites or red lines. They should only demand the Ministry of Internal Affairs with full capacity. They should activate maroon berets and military police and make it unbearable for the PKK with laws and the legal system.

53

The Mahdi (pbuh) will not talk by engaging in demagoguery. He will speak briefly but to the point. He will make erudite, concise, influential, statements directed towards the essence of the topics at hand, covering all the important points and bringing exact solutions.

54

None of the militants of the PKK is interested in marrying, in finishing their schooling, none of them are after striking it rich. They are not after having fun in discos or bars. They are not after deciding where to have an engagement party and how many people to invite. They do not have any interest in deciding the meals to be served in their weddings. They have no interest in cars. They only have their eyes on their ideology. And when that is the case, of course they attain success.

55

The AK Party should step forward with the appearance of a very modern structure, respectful towards women's rights, loving both ladies who cover their heads and those wearing revealing clothes, respecting all of them, open to music, arts, having fun, with the appearance of a liberal party. They should be the utmost liberal, the utmost democratic. I mean the MHP should also be like this and put these principles into practice. After guaranteeing these fundamental acts, they should wipe the PKK off the map.

56

The MHP should have one prerequisite for coalition; to put an end to the PKK. That would turn the MHP into a hero. That would save both the AK Party and the MHP. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs should be given to the MHP.

57

So long as the state continues with Darwinist propaganda, so long as the textbooks of the state continue to say "There is no God, there is no Book, there is no religion, there is no faith" under the influence of Darwinist philosophy, so long as they say, "The existence of Heaven and Hell is not true, they are giving you incorrect information by saying that they exist," in books, the power of the PKK would increase.

58

People like wealth, power and ruler-ship. Beautiful women, beautiful cars, beautiful music, beautiful clothes all have a very powerful impact on people's lowerselves. If you communicate religion by making use of those within reasonable, legitimate limits, you would make religion enter life and thus Islam would reach the great masses of people.

59

Israel is the one who instills religiousness in the region. At that time, Palestine was the center of communism. All the communists were trained there. Egypt was a center of communism, Syria was a center of communism. They became religious after the foundation of Israel. They looked at them and saw that they are religious and decided to be religious themselves.

60

The PKK should be wiped out of the region with laws and the legal system. That would be a great lesson for the US. But it should be done in cooperation with Iran. They should make an agreement with Iran, they should jointly decide on annihilating the PKK within the mainframe of the law. I mean they should make an agreement about the fight against terrorism. That would form an enormous power. The two of them should wipe the PKK off the region together.

61

Almighty God only looks if he is a Muslim or not. I mean there is no such thing as a semi-hypocrite or a semi-Muslim. God says "Everything you do would go to your idols.” For instance, he behaves 5% for God and 95% for his idols. Everything he does would then go his idols. Or on the contrary, he behaves 95% for God and 5% for idols; that would go completely to idols as well. God says, "You should do everything you do only for Me."

62

Those who are after their own pleasure want to be on both sides, they want to go be with Muslims and with the others as well. They want to have fun both here and there but when they face the slightest difficulty, when something conflicts with their interests, they flee instantly. Again when things seem to be at his sweet will, he sniffs and looks around. He approaches things if he sees no problem. He imagines that he can really attain some results from such a behavior. However if he acts this treacherously, knowingly and intentionally, his reward would be ever heavier. He won't be saved by that occasional coming and going.

63

When one gives his life on the path of God, that is what God approves of the most. God defines it as the greatest form of demonstration of love; martyrdom, being a martyr for God.

64

The characteristic of the Mahdi (pbuh) is that he has such an exalted conscience. His good conscience is higher than that of others; that is it. Or else, it is not because he has a special ability, a special superiority.

65

Adhesions to the system of the Mahdi in a calm, covert environment are much more eligible. For instance, there had been groups adhering to our Prophet (saas) but the good deeds they will attain for doing so is much less. The first ones to pledge allegiance are very eligible. The first 313 people, like the number of the companions who fought in the Battle of Badr, they are very important.

66

The system of the Mahdi acts secretly and covertly. That is to rule out weak people with hypocritical character, people devoted to this world. The people devoted to this world, people full of jealousy and envy, people in love with this world are unable to use their willpower and mind in such a calm environment. They are consumed with a stoicism and lethargy, so they lay themselves aside. But in a very fast-moving, fast-paced environment, a great number of adhesions take place with that sudden excitement. But let me say this, such adhesions are not that much eligible.

67

The system of the Mahdi continues its normal course but its pace changes from time to time. Sometimes it escalates, sometimes it continues with a reasonable pace. God regulates that pace. Meaning everything moves according to the planning of God.

68

If the PKK doesn't lay down their weapons willingly, a military solution could be sought. We do not want to live under the shadow of weapons. We do not want a Southeast in which weapons rule.

69

A coalition with the HDP is not acceptable. Before all else, the PKK should be wiped away with laws and the legal system. The coalition should be formed with the MHP or else this nightmare on us would never be gone. They are going to lay down their weapons. That is it.

70

Setting a cruel communist structure like the PKK in the Southeast of Turkey and providing them with a living space in the region would be a grave disaster for our future. If the political parties ally against this, an amazing force would be formed. The CHP, the MHP, the Felicity Party... should decide together to wipe them out from the region with laws and the legal system. They should make a joint declaration on the topic.

71

The PKK will be great trouble for Turkey in the future as well. It is not something to gloss over. In a timely manner, we need to put them straight within the mainframe of the legal system. Delaying it would do no good, it would only let this monster develop even further.

72

Letting people elect their governors in the Southeast would mean losing that region. That is because the PKK has gained dominance in the Southeast. Before all else, we should wipe out the PKK with laws and the legal system. And then let the people elect their governors.

73

The PKK should be wiped out from the region with laws and the weight of the legal system as a whole. They should collect them one by one and put them in jail and put an end to this ignominy.

74

Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) doesn't have palaces. The palace of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is in his heart. Furthermore, the whole world is the palace of Hazrat Mahdi, not only one building. That is because he is the imam of the whole world.

75

The system of the Mahdi will not work with projects. The system of the Mahdi doesn't work with adjustments. There is a structure God wishes and that develops naturally. It is just like a baby developing in a mother's womb. They imagine that they will be creating that child. You cannot do that, God creates it. When the time comes, that child is born and you cannot stop it.

76

Almighty God does not let anything stand before the system of the Mahdi, He doesn't accept any obstacle standing before it. He doesn't give teeth to any movement against the system of the Mahdi. Only the way of the path of the system of the Mahdi is open.

77

They see the system of the Mahdi as a palace and say, "Here's the cement, here's the iron; you build and decorate it and here is your palace." There is no such thing. That palace is in the Sight of God. The system of the Mahdi is in the Sight of God. It is in the flow of destiny, that is something inside the role and it develops metaphysically.

78

One says, "My religion is detached from my social life." That is the point you lose. As a matter of fact, life is a whole. Islam is a whole. Islam envelops all stages of life and everything else. You would ruin yourself if you do so.

79

One feels a little bit admiration for unbelief and that admiration ruins him, it burns him out. For instance, he emulates their style on the internet and that consumes him. Or he relishes their unlawful way of living and wants to slide towards it, even if just a tad.

80

When a characteristic of unbelief smears a Muslim's character, it makes him suffer a lot. When a little bit of unbelief smears one's character, sufferings and distress start. He feels suffocated and fidgety but doesn't know why. Actually, that distress stems from his sliding towards unbelief.

81

Unbelief is immensely troublesome, it is outrageously distressful. It tears one's heart out. Islam, on the other hand, is refreshing and easy. Both your head and your heart will be clear and sound.

82

When you abide by the easy religion of God, when you abide by Islam that is natural, pure belief, the religion of Mohammed (saas), you go to Heaven. But in the religion you make difficult with superstitions, in the religion you rarified and made impossible to live by, you go to Hell. Both your world and your Hereafter will be Hell. Why are you looking for such trouble?

83

God creates easiness for us and deems us successful in easiness. Those who look for difficulty are ruined; they are defeated, they are crushed. All those looking for traditionalist Islam, for orthodox Islam, are crushed. Who needs that; why would you change the immaculately radiant religion of God? Why do you raise difficulties while God has created religion of ease? How nice it is, live joyfully.

84

You might be doing something wrong if you have difficulty in living religion. It means you are not putting the Qur'an into practice. That is because there is no difficulty in the Qur'an, there is no difficulty in Islam. It is always easiness. Islam is the religion of easiness.

85

People resisted every Messenger sent by God. What draws God's wrath is that all the Messengers are very honest, sincere and righteous. And that those people fiercely stand aloof from them, even though they are well aware of the fact that they are mistaken and are on the wrong path and that the Messengers of God are honest, sincere and veracious. In that case, what they do deserves troubles so God plagues them.

86

When God's Name is not recited, that region, that city, that country would become barren. What comes in its place? Hunger and economic crisis. What comes in its place? Terror. Those two dangers. Is God's Name invoked in Greece? No. Is His Name invoked in other countries? For instance, is His Name invoked in the US? What happens then? Hunger comes. Hunger enwraps them all in those vast lands. Terror, meaning fear, comes following that.

87

God does not tell us to "worship Him," but He tells us to "sincerely worship Him." God lays that as a condition in any case. Love is given as a blessing reserved only for those sincere ones.

88

Making mention of the blessings of God is crucial. One would become egoistical and abnormal when he forgets to do that, his heart would not be in anything he does: May God forbid. That is why God tells us to invoke His Name. Invoking the Name of God would bring relief and beauty to one's heart.

89

When one gives a present to another, if it stings thinking how expensive it is, that feeling comes from lack of love. But even if the present is expensive, if giving a present pleases him thinking that his brother would like that present and be very happy about it, that would be a beauty, an attitude that God would appreciate.

90

In the beginning of the verses of the Qur'an, God's Names Rahman and Rahim are recited. "Bismillahirrahmanirrahim". Rahman and Rahim, God; meaning God, the One Who knows and shows love very well and the One Who wants love from us. "Rahman" because He is the Protective, He is the One Who watches over, He is the One Who forgives, He is the One Who wants good for people.

91

Love is a very engrossing, a very amazing feeling. It is not like eating or drinking. It is the most pleasing blessing. If one asks, "Would you prefer eating or love?" It is love. If one asks, " Would you like us to give you a yacht or love?" The answer is love. What good would come out of a yacht? It is just a huge wooden thing. Think about going aboard in the middle of the sea? What would you do if there is no love? What good would that do? Or else let us imagine that you are given a castle but there is no love in it; that castle would turn into a giant prison. It would do no good.

92

What does forgiving mean? It serves love. Without forgiveness you become angry, you get cross, you reproach others and severe your connections with the concerned. When one severs connections with one person and then the other, what happens? He remains alone. This is the disaster cast upon the whole world. This time they start keeping dogs and cats at their homes as their sole companions. This is what happens without love, without heeding the Qur'an.

93

When the time comes and a Muslim becomes a martyr, that is what God loves the most; that is the highest form of love. That is because it means one gives his life for God. Isn't one's life precious? He says, "My Lord, You made me love my life, I love You more than my life. My life is Yours. I am Yours." This is what it means. That is why Almighty God keeps martyrs in a separate place and does not make them die. They do not taste death.

94

Martyrdom is what God likes the most. God finds the greatest love in that. But a Muslim should will for that, not just randomly but should sincerely and wholeheartedly will for that praying "My Lord, I ask martyrdom from You."

95

Some people never accept patience and ordeals, yet ask directly for blessings. That is unacceptable. You can neither attain Heaven like that nor attain the good pleasure of God. This is a place of trial not a place of fun. Almighty God says, "If We had desired to have some amusement, We would have derived it from Our Presence, but We did not do that." Heaven is the place of amusement, there is no such thing in this world.

96

The US should become religious again; the current situation is not acceptable. When they are religious, peace comes upon them. When they are irreligious an enormous exiguousness and inauspiciousness comes upon them.

97

When one is on the path of God, God gives him richness, abundance and beauty. But also accept the sufferings on that path, not only the blessings. It is not acceptable otherwise. You should accept the patience; accept the ordeals. Then God would rain down His blessings upon you.

98

A Muslim could be poor or rich. Our Prophet was poor in the beginning and God says, "Did He not find you impoverished and enrich you?" Muslims are patient in times of difficulty and they are good- mannered in times of richness. Our Prophet lived as an orphan for years and all his childhood passed in poverty.

99

It is amazing that they call every Prophet "crazy". Without exception, they do that to all of them and they mock all of them. They call them crazy in any case. Yet they will learn who is rational and who is crazy.

100

When they are made fun of during their preaching they say, "I am demoralized." They have no idea about destiny, they have no idea about the Qur'an. Thank God for seeing such a miracle. Be amazed; your good deeds are increasing while their sins are increasing. What is your goal? Is it not to attain good deeds? You then say that you are sad. Why should one be sad because his good deeds have increased?

101

Some people communicate religion but they say, "I am communicating religion yet they are making fun of me." What kind of a preacher are you? You do not know the first thing about the Qur'an? You hit your feet on the floor and it makes a sound right? When you communicate, they would of course make fun of you; this is the law, this is the law of God. If you are preaching religion they will of course make fun of you. Why are you surprised about it?

102

The blather of unbelief is so difficult that it is a trial in this world. It necessitates patience, that is for one. Secondly it necessitates attention. From which point that impertinent attitude is to be refuted should be investigated separately. These are not always from the same point of view, they all have to be proven with verses and then a rationale should be propounded.

103

The whole of the Qur'an is based on love. But if you directly present love, you would be entering a great beauty right from the center. That is why a way of explaining aimed directly on love, rationality and spirit is needed. Whichever verse you open and read you will see that they all aim for love.

104

God says; "Make allowances for people, command what is right, and turn away from the ignorant." What happens when we make allowances for people? The obstacles before love is removed. Love unites. "… and turn away from the ignorant." Ignorance depresses people. Ignorance suffocates love. When you turn away from the ignorant you would be protecting love. "Command what is wrong." What happens when you command right? Love increases, love develops.

105

You forgive, you pardon and thus remove the block that stands in front of love. When you forgive you would be removing the wall in front of love.

106

If you protect the needy, what would they feel for you? They would love you. What would be the first feeling they would feel? Love. For instance, you give them a gift and they thank you. What is thanks? Their eyes sparkle. Why? Out of love. Love would be formed in their hearts towards you instantly. Our Prophet (saas) says "...give presents to each other as that increases mutual love." What is the goal here? Love.

107

Fear of God constitutes the mainframe of love. You show patience because of fear of God, you show compassion, you become helpful and generous because of fear of God. All these form the mainframe of love.

Look at the Qur'an as a whole; love prevails throughout the whole of the Qur'an. The Qur'an lays the ground for love. The Qur'an settles the foundation of love on a very steady ground with the fear of God, with the love of God and the threat of Hell.

109

What does "salam" mean? It means love. " It means no harm will come to you from me." Then what does it mean? It means keep your heart at ease and in comfort, be happy. Look at the origin of all these words, all these expressions, there is love, deep in the origin of all these words.

110

What does saying, "Oh my Lord, I thank You a lot," means? It means, "I do love You a lot and I am expressing my love to You." It means, "I am happy." What does saying I am happy, mean? It means I am happy because I love You.

111

Thanking God, saying “Alhamdulillah” is a way of showing love. "Oh Lord I do thank You," you say. What does thanking mean? If there is no love inside that, it loses its whole meaning. The meaning of it will be completed only if there is love in it.

112

“Rahman and Rahim." These Names are all about love. The whole aim of the Qur'an is love. The goal of the fear of God is love. Those who fear God pave the way for love. Those who fear God would easily love and be loved yet those who do not fear God would neither be easily loved nor love.

113

They imagine that preaching religion means talking and writing a lot. Instead of doing that, show your love for 15 minutes and it would be 15 million times more effective.

114

Radicals assume that talking in an all-knowing manner would disseminate Islam. Islam would never be disseminated in this manner. People would like to see your sincere love. They would want to see your clean-cut clothes, your cleanliness, your liveliness, your effort to beautify life. These things show Islam applied in practice. When they see them, they embrace Islam as you tell them.

115

Love is a crucial subject matter. We look into politics and only see hatred and rage. The goal of life is love; so why do they not prioritize love?

116

Our Prophet (saas) gave all his attention to love and he thus became very successful very influential. Our Prophet's power of influence came from his love. Prophet Joseph's, Prophet Solomon's and Prophet Abraham's power of influence came from their love as well.

117

Radicals constantly talk and speak about superstitions. What is their aim? They have no love inside. All they talk about is how to beat a man, how to behead someone, how to humiliate women and that is it. They are philosophizing on how to hate each other. There is no love in radicals.

118

Everything is beautiful in Heaven. God puts lovers there. People there are beautiful, plants are beautiful, flowers are beautiful. The whole purpose is love, God's whole intent is love.

119

Imitation, false love is most horrible; it is something God doesn't like at all. Hypocrite women and men, unbeliever women and men, cruel women and men are masters in this false, imitated love.

120

What is the sole intent of Almighty God? To love and to be loved. But to be loved how? To be loved sincerely and wholeheartedly not with false pretenses. That is why people always look for sincere love, why the whole world looks for sincere love.

121

"Muslims are friends of one another." What does “friend” mean? It means the one who protects and watches over the other like parents, like brothers do.

122

Variance means conflict; it means dispute and disunity. I mean that variance means an inability to come to a common decision, to have a common religion; it means an inability to live a sincere and righteous life and it means ignoring the commands of God. Satan loves variance, there cannot be any variance among Muslims.

123

The PKK is openly a state within a state. If there is a parallel state, they are that, the PKK is the parallel state. They built their structure, founded their courts, became a state in those lands. They say that they will be founding their own parliaments, their own armies. They even have their own constitution.

124

The PKK should not intend to fight ISIS. They should pull themselves together and break out from this Darwinist, materialist system. They should believe in God and say, "La ilaha illa Allah Muhammed Ar-Rasul Allah." ISIS will play havoc with them all. I am saying this in advance. They should listen to me, come to have faith in God and pull themselves together.

125

"... Enjoin the right, and forbid the wrong..." this is the duty of a Muslim. Muslims criticize Muslims, appreciate each other's nice characteristics and remind them of their shortcomings.

126

Man is unbridled in seeing himself as self-sufficient. One should not see himself as self-sufficient. He should constantly criticize himself. He should criticize himself openly and thank those who criticize him. He should say, “May God be pleased with you”.

127

God is All-Knowing. He possesses endless knowledge. We simply are given drops from God's knowledge as a blessing from Almighty God. Or else we have nothing. Consequently no one could claim to be wise or all-knowing; all men are ignorant.

128

The Qur'an protects those in need. It protects the poor and wants goods to be distributed. The Qur'an commands social justice. That is why if Islam prevails, there will be abundance and wealth all around. Many people do not know how perfect, glorious and fundamentally solution providing this social justice aspect of Islam is.

129

When unbelievers attack Muslims, they first attack goods and possessions. They try to hit from there so that they would have no staying power. Whereas a Muslim would eat only grass but serve Islam and the Qur'an no matter what.

130

Muslims should love one another. If they do not love each other what good would possessions do? Let us say that you have piled up goods everywhere, let us say you have stocked oil here, sugar and jam there. You will simply gain weight, die and nothing good would come from it. You should distribute that wealth and give everyone.

131

The morality in Islam which necessitates distributing and giving alms abundantly does away with this corruption, this trouble completely. Since there is no interest, the economy ramps up and an enormous abundance comes about.

132

Since egoism and selfishness prevail in the current capitalist system, a great majority of people hoard their money. They store it away thinking “just in case”. The goods produced by factories are not bought; when they are not bought, no further production can be made. Workers cannot be paid and it brings about death everywhere.

133

God doesn't give you money for you to save it, but to use it. Economic crises do not break out when money is used. When money is hoarded, an economic crisis starts. When people get egoistical and selfish, when they keep their money at home or somewhere else locked up, life stops and so does the economy.

134

A martyr enjoys martyrdom when he becomes a martyr. That is why they say "he drank the sherbet of martyrdom." Because it is sweet and the lower-self enjoys it.

135

Almighty God says, "If you abide by God you will be happy." What does this mean? If you do not abide by God, you cannot be happy. What kind of unhappiness is this? You suffer, you live in fear, you feel restless, you become apprehensive. You writhe in pain. Life will turn into a living hell for you.

136

If one gets married simply to reproduce, he would be like an animal. If one goes to school only for his own interests, he would be an egotistical, ordinary person. But if one lives for the good pleasure of God in all things, he would have a lofty and superior goals. Then Almighty God gives him a clear mind, plentitude, facility and beauty.

137

Being sincere is living only for God. For, instance when one gets married, he gets married for God. When one opens a place of business , he does so for God. When one goes to school, he should do so for God. When one eats, he should eat for the good pleasure of God. Then his life will be plentiful and beautiful.

138

In the Qur'an Almighty God says, "I will make you prevail in the world." For that reason Muslims should strive to convey beauty, love, peace and brotherhood to the whole world and communicate the Name of God, the fear of God and a love for God to the whole world.

139

Muslims should embrace the whole world. They should aim for the whole world. I mean a Muslim should see the world as a village. He should see it as if it is his own village. That is because God gives Muslims the world as a whole.

140

God loves to be asked for forgiveness; He loves forgiving. But if one makes a mistake, commits a sin and then refrains from apologizing, God takes revenge for that. But if one seeks forgiveness, Almighty God says, "you will find Me forgiving."

141

Almighty God wants us only to behave sincerely and honestly. When one plays games and acts insincerely God ruins him and gives him troubles.

142

A pharmaceutical factory writes how to use a drug on its package; otherwise, one might use that drug wrongly and might get sick. God, Who created us together with this world, sent us ready information on how to use this world. These are the Holy Books; the Psalms, the Torah, the Gospel, the Qur'an and the other pages sent before.

143

We will not let Turkey be divided. We would never let that happen no matter what; we will prevent that through laws and the legal system. Things that they could never imagine would happen if they attempt to do this. They should be well aware of that fact. We will never let anyone do such treachery.

144

Islam is beauty, love and kindness. It is virtue, quality, arts and aesthetics. A Muslim is the one with the highest quality. If you ask what form of life is the most reasonable, the most beautiful that one's mind could perceive, the answer is Islam.

145

May Almighty God wrap the whole world with His radiance. May our Lord manifest Himself with His Name 'Al-Hadi' (The Guide), inshaAllah. May He damn the antichrist and ruin him, insha'Allah. May God annihilate the system of the antichrist, insha'Allah.

146

May God wrap us all around with radiance. May God make us radiant. May He give us guidance. May He open our minds. May God protect us from the evils of satan. May God protect us from wickedness. May God grant the feeling of safety to our hearts. May God make us wealthy. May He make us strong. May God make Islam prevail. May God show us the Mahdi. May He make Mahdi (pbuh) appear. May God make us students of the Mahdi (pbuh) and Jesus Messiah (pbuh).

147

Almighty God wants to be loved. We do love God greatly. May He love us as well, insha'Allah. May we be the servants of God that He loves.

148

Bigots are chatty. They know very well to deceive. They know demagoguery as well. They know fraud, slyness and deceitfulness very well. They smile to your face but they are treacherous. They systematically make plans. In the end God plagues them. Their plots hit them in the end.

149

The greatest trouble of bigots is jealousy and envy. Right now, in the End Times, the reason behind this great corruption is jealousy towards the Mahdi (pbuh). Appearances of false Mahdis, their clashing with each other, their trying to forcefully declare people who do not claim to be the Mahdi as the Mahdi are all manifestations of this jealousy.

150

Hatred against the Children of Israel as a whole would bring about grave inauspiciousness and troubles. Feeling hatred towards the line of the prophets is something God dislikes. You can feel hatred towards the cruel ones; why do you hate the innocent ones? But they discard everyone as a whole. That is not acceptable.

151

There is an unnecessary and irrational hatred towards Israel. The fact is however that such hatred would bring about troubles and inauspiciousness. With that hatred you would be attacking the related verses of the Qur'an. Pull yourself together. While not all of the Children of Israel are sacred, but by making a generalization, you would be taking on all those immaculate and innocent ones, those Muslims, those God-fearing ones as well. You would be contradicting the prophets. God would then give troubles upon you; pull yourself together, come to your senses.

152

A jealous, dangerous man would take everything you tell him to his evil memory, to his evil friends to use later on. That is because such people are connected with the devil. You are talking, but do you know to whom you are talking to? You would be drained if you saw the truth. You are telling those to the devil. Satan appears before you in the form of a person and you are talking to him. You should not talk to them; that is because they would be a trouble for you. But if that person is your friend, if he is a Muslim, he would be happy for you when you tell him about the beautiful things you have.

153

When you talk about something beautiful, they [unbelievers] become jealous. That is why such things are not told to sick people. It is only said to those sincere, righteous Muslims. They would feel relieved with such news but you should not speak of such good news to those jealous, dangerous people with the characteristics of hypocrites. Refraining from saying such things to such people would be an act of worship. You should hold your tongue, be silent and talk about other things.

154

If Christians say, "God has a son," the Qur'an corrects their mistake. If Christians adopt what the Qur'an corrects, they would then be on the right path. Almighty God says "It is all okay if they perform their prayers, give their alms and avoid ascribing partners to God." Christians would then become Muslims as well.

155

The Names “Rahman, Rahim” are refreshing. They express refreshment. But in the Name "Al-Kahhar" love is hidden. God damns the unbelievers and saves Muslims. He takes Muslims' revenge; God takes the revenge of all those He loves. The Name Al-Kahhar is also a sign of love. His damning unbelievers stems from God's love for Muslims. That is why there is a hidden love in it.

156

“Thank” is a word of love. What does thanking God mean? It means my Lord, I do love You very much, I do love You madly. I extend my endless thanks to You. This is the meaning of hamd (thanks).

157

Ar-Rahman and Ar-Rahim (Most Compassionate and All-Merciful). Both of those Names express love. Love is in the origin of both of those Names. Ar-Rahim means the One Who protects with love, the One Who looks after, the One Who is always after goodness, the One Who always creates with goodness.

158

If Iran and Turkey circumvent Kandil, there would be no need for armed conflict, they would all come out. That is because they cannot possibly pile up three-months' food. They would have to surrender. The government should do this.

159

Mount Kandil is occupied right now; those scums are using that mountain as a post. They are shooting and martyring our soldiers, our police officers, Muslims. Turkey needs to come to terms with Iran, with the Iranian government and enter Kandil. They should clean out all of those caves with laws and legal system. If they only circumvent the mountain, no one would be left there in the mountains after a three months blockade.

160

Radicals prohibit everything beautiful. They preach everything that is atrocious, everything that is difficult. Their encouragement about crying is unbelievable. God refers to it as a characteristic of unbelievers. "They will cry a lot and you will laugh," God says to Muslims. And they turn everything around and tell Muslims "Do not laugh, cry a lot!" How could one's mind and soul endure this? Go do sports, eat, drink, laugh, perform your religious observances, beautify everywhere. Let the arts prevail everywhere.

161

Radicals are about to wipe the beautiful religion of Islam off the face of this world, because of the religion of their ancestors. They have ruined Muslims as well. Everywhere around the world people are being cut up, beaten, abused, insulted and spit upon. Some behead others, some drag others on the ground behind moving cars, they riddle others with bullets, they throw barrel bombs at them. There is an inconceivable system of persecution. These will all come to an end if and when they turn towards the Qur'an.

162

When people wash their hearts with religion; it becomes a radiance and light upon them. But many people imagine that religion takes their lives away. As a matter of fact, irreligiousness takes lives away, fundamentally. Everything turns into a burden for them. Food turns into a trouble for them, their cars, their homes, their wives, their friends, their schools, everything they have turns into a burden. But if they are faithful their wives would turn into blessings, their friends would be blessings, their homes would become their place of worship, their lives would be radiant, everything around them would be radiant and their hearts would be full of relief.

163

God bestows better means, more beautiful blessings to those who are more devout and that is visible. But of course Muslims will be patient. I mean Muslims should see the beauty beneath the ordeals and the beauty beneath the blessings.

164

God gives abundance and plenty to the countries with sincerely devout people. If they remain aloof to religion, God gives them troubles and inauspiciousness. This is valid for each and every individual, for each and every individual person.

165

Religion is a blessing. A greater part of people- may God forbid- regard religion as if it is an affliction. Actually, religion is the ornament of the world, it is the joy of life, it is the light of the mind, a relief of the heart, it is a divine gift.

166

One makes a mistake, commits a sin and throws himself, he suffers. This is not what God wants from you. He simply says "repent and go on with your life." He doesn't say, "Cast yourself down, devastate yourself." Such are abnormal acts; such are the acts of the idolaters. In the end God is the One Who makes you do that mistake. There is good in that. You simply will not repeat it and that is it. You will make up your mind, won't do it again.

167

Sleep is the weakness of this world. Every day after a certain hour one feels sleepy. They go and lay down to die and arise from death hours later. They bathe, they eat, again they feel sleepy at night. The time to die comes and they go die again. In the morning they arise from the dead again. Dying and arising from the dead, dying and arising from the dead, one's whole life goes on like this. In the end, they die for real and then arise from the dead in another world.

168

The Sun and the shadow are bound to each other with amazing laws. They are intertwined with the laws of God. The Sun doesn't have light, there is no light outside; it is pitch dark. Consequently there is no shadow. Shadow and light are created inside our brains separately. Colors are created inside the brain one by one. There is no light outside. Yellow, red, green; all the colors are created specifically, created inside the brain.

169

Shadow and light are created separately. That is because light is created inside the brain. There is no light outside. There is no color outside either. Light is created inside one's brain. It is pitch black outside. Consequently there is no shadow outside. There is no shadow if there is no light. That means shadows are created separately inside the brain. God says that He creates them both separately.

170

One says ,"When I make a mistake, my good conscience disturbs me, it makes me unable to breath." That stems from letting Satan suffocate you. Why is there the need for that, my brother? You simply put your trust in God and that is it, you repent to God. What does repentance mean? You hope God will accept your repentance. Then, what does being suffocated mean? That would mean that you do not trust God. If you've made a mistake, you've made the mistake in your destiny. Did you decide to never to do it again? You did. If you are determined about this, that takes care of it.

171

Man has a great power of resistance. He orders his brain and doesn't do what Satan orders. For instance, he would serve Islam. The lower-self says, "I am exhausted!" a Muslim responds to his lower-self saying, "You create that tiredness with prompting," and says, "What exhaustion are you talking about? You would be jumping up and down if you were told that you would be given five thousand liras. You are lying, it is not true." Even if the lower-self says, "I am spent, I am tired, I am about to drop down," a Muslim would say, "If there were something in it for you, you would go insane and all energetic."

172

Satan drags one into a sentimental mode, poisoning his mind, making his brain numb, dragging him into a drunken state. He hands over the rope to the devil and Satan drags him around as ever it wants. A Muslim should break off that rope instantly, saying, "What is going on? What are you doing? I am breaking off this rope!" and hold on to the rope of God. God's unbreakable, unseverable rope.

173

If one yields to Satan, either resentment or rage would drag him around. I mean those feelings lay hold of him and drags him around. A Muslim should rip apart that claw with a strong blow. He should not accept being dragged around. Being dragged around like that is so humiliating.

174

For a Muslim, losing one's temper is very bad. Rage takes over one and drags him around as if dragging around an animal. The man indulges in that feeling and disgraces himself. That is not acceptable. One needs to use his mind.

175

Before all else, a Muslim should know to resist abnormal things. For instance, he has to know how to resist rage. Yielding to rage is an animalistic instinct. Keeping one's temper is a humane superiority.

176

One should not knowingly push something, insist on something. What has happened would always be good for a Muslim no matter what. It is something defined in destiny. But one needs to hold on to reason.

177

Using one's wit means being in sincere connection with God and trying to see the signs of God knowing in which points Satan would distort one's mind, without getting agitated. That is because God is the One Who leads the mind. One would differentiate the wrong and the dangerous when one abides by his conscience; God inspires him, God makes him feel what the right choice is.

178

Almighty God gives permission to the satan as a requisite of the trial in this world. With this wisdom, people are perfectly tested. The lower self matures in the struggle against the satan and it becomes perfect.

179

What is meant by jihad in the verses of the Qur'an is struggling; an intellectual struggle, an effort, all sorts of activities. People tend to take it as if it means "hanging people and chopping them up." The fact is however, jihad is the name of the effort put on the path of God.

180

Even if something goes seemingly wrong, a Muslim should know that there is good in that. Some say, "Something went wrong." If you put your trust completely in God, whatever happens would be for the good.

181

Some people get into a weird romanticism, a weird state of mind when one talks about religion. God should be remembered with a rational attitude.

182

Being patient and trusting in God are two important characteristics that God loves and likes. What does trusting in God mean? It means a Muslim will be faced with great incidents yet he will always put his trust in God and be patient. He will not worry, he will not be sad, he will not be afraid.

183

The time for the promise of God is right now. I mean there are about a hundred years until the Last Day. There is no time, other than this century, for the global triumph of the moral values of Islam. That is why Freemasonry and the Templars should decide, the Sanhedrin should also decide. The global deep state should also decide. Otherwise, the world will be destroyed completely. The time for Islamic Unity has come.

184

Eyes are miraculous organs. They claim that they come into being as ordinary organs as a result of mutations. An ordinary process cannot be the cause of their existence. An ordinary process can only make you blind. Mutations can only make you unable to walk. Mutations can only cause blindness, deafness. They can only destroy existent systems and do nothing else.

185

God demands piety in the real sense. Or else it is not like thinking that there is a social life and there is religion lived right on the edge; there is no such thing. How could there be something to call a social life? Religion rules every aspect of life. Religion rules everything in a Muslim's life. What does a social life means? You can go anywhere on Earth and only the good pleasure of God prevails in everything you do.

186

Loving God is both pleasing and pleasant. Loving God brings facility and relief to the heart and the pleasantness of that in a person's life could be seen rapidly. It shows itself from the regularity and order in one's life.

187

God creates millions, billions, trillions of wonders in this world, so much so that it is innumerable. God wants those blessings appreciated, He wants the artistry He created to be seen and appreciated individually. God says "If you tried to number God's blessings, you could never count them."

188

Our Prophet's (saas) power of faith exhilarates the companions. Having a person with deep faith among them is an amazing feeling. That is why people love sheikhs, sheikhs of religious orders deeply. They love them because they have strong faith; at least people see them as people of strong faith.

189

Death is not something challenging for a Muslim. It is like waking up from a sleep. God says "easily"; that means easily in the perfect sense of the word, not in a half measure. For instance, if one suffers a little, if it is hard on him, you wouldn't call it easily. Only zero hardship can be called “easily”.

190

God tests us with a beautiful trial. Actually that is also a beautiful education. In the end maturity, kindness and a personality suitable for the morality of Heaven develop.

191

If one finds it discouraging to show patience, he would face lots of difficulties. Then one would have to tolerate this. The fact is however, toleration is something, showing patience is something else. Patience is an act of worship done with pleasure. It is an act of worship done readily.

192

Something happens and we act patiently. But we also reinforce our patience phase by phase. What is this, then? This is education. An education for what? An education for Heaven. God chooses a handful of Muslims and educates them here. When they are directly put in Heaven, what happened to the Prophet Adam (pbuh) happens. It doesn't work that way, that is to say. With the education given the mind settles, the personality develops and one starts appreciating the blessings of God.

193

God tests people extensively. The trial in this world is not an ordinary trial. There is a weighty trial, a weighty education. This is not solely a trial; actually it is education, only the name of it is “trial”.

194

The wisdom of the Qur'an is crucially important. One needs to concentrate on it. Or else you can read many verses in ten minutes if you like. You can read the Qur'an rapidly but the Qur'an is a Book that should be read in an orderly manner and by pondering upon it, by unveiling the wisdom of it step by step.

195

Unbelievers cannot do anything. For instance, the PKK wants to do something and God casts troubles on them. Hitler attempted to do something and God casts troubles on him. Mussolini tried and God ruined him. Stalin and Lenin wanted to do something and God ruined them all. God says that He would ruin all of them, and that they can never be successful.

196

People with a superiority complex like and overestimate unbelievers thinking that something would come out of them. Actually as they diverge into unbelief, inauspiciousness, troubles and ugliness enwrap them and they cannot find anything else in unbelief. What would come out of that gutter? Only the sludge of the gutter and nothing else.

197

Feeling a sense of [unjustified] superiority causes snobbery and leads to impertinence. The tragic thing is that they become miserably senseless. For instance, they start lying swiftly and foolishly. They start talking irrationally, saying things that even the most foolish people wouldn't say. Such people have an astounding anarchy in their souls, an insane anarchy and they become prone to unbelief.

198

In the Qur'an, God says "We tested you with many trials" (Surah Ta ha; 40) to the Prophet Moses (pbuh). 'We have tested you,' God says. And then he (Prophet Moses (pbuh)) becomes a prophet with firm resolve. If the things he survived were ordinary things, he would have been an ordinary person. But since he has been tested extraordinarily, he became an extraordinary personality.

199

Materialists say, "If God exists, He should turn this world into Heaven. Why are there all those troubles and pains?" Look at the reasoning here. Haven't you come here to be tested? Since you are not here to have fun, since you are here to be tested, of course there will be pain and troubles. Of course there will be hardship. How are you going to be tested without those hardships?

200

It is astonishing that even though people suffer extensively, they fail to realize the importance of religion. Actually a normal devout person lives a very peaceful, a very beautiful life.

201

We have always encouraged the Republican People's Party to be religious and they have proceeded on that path very nicely. They made great moves towards the religious lines. But if they put a damper on every move they make and say negative things about them every step of the way, then a portion of them might have to assume a negative attitude against religion and that would not be good. They can be criticized about every other matter, but I believe it would be wrong if they are criticized about the topic of religion. That is because their becoming religious is for the benefit of all Muslims.

202

Leaving an artist to his own means during his difficulties is a lack of good conscience. First of all, an artist should not struggle to make a living. They should be provided a perfect life. The state has many means, so these means should be at their disposal so that they can comfortably perform their art. If you force them into a life struggling to make a living, how could they perform? How could they perform under these conditions?

203

The trouble is not in the presidential system itself, but in federalism. Or else we have no problem with the presidential system.

204

Islam cannot be preached with the traditionalist Orthodox understanding of Islam. They put impertinent men on television and they talk about their own superstitions with the mindset of the 1930's and 1940's – I exonerate religion related topics. Such people can only address their own peer group with their mindset. The youth, on the other hand, watch these people with astonishment and repulsion. Actually neither their culture, nor their knowledge is suitable to communicate religion.

205

Religion is quite easy and plain. There is love, compassion, friendship, brotherhood, forgiveness, generosity, self-sacrifice, bravery. How nice generosity is; for instance, there is a person you love and you see that he doesn't have anything. You act generously and it makes him happy and pleased. That would do you good as well.

206

The religion presented by the radicals is like Hell. There is no music, no paintings, no fun, no love, no friendship, no companionship, no nothing. There are only troubles, impertinence, irrationality, superstitions and nonsensical beliefs.

207

Life turns into a nightmare if one remains aloof to religion, to Islam, to fear of God, to love of God. They do not say a single word about God. Just say "God" for once. Would they cause you any pain? Just say "God" for once - nothing would happen. They do not say it and the result is an inconceivable distress, an inconceivable tension. There is zero love. There is nothing in them to call love; love is extinct for them. They have no respect either; they have completely lost the feeling of respect.

208

How could men come into being out of muddy water? Elephants, giraffes, birds, storks, olives, orange trees, tomatoes, peppers; they say that they all have come about from muddy water. Well then, let us put all manner of chemical substances inside a barrel and do whatever you like, let us wait from father to son, in front of that barrel for millions of years. No giraffes, no men, no tomatoes, no peppers, no grapes, nothing would ever come out from that barrel.

209

God created you with a beautiful creation and give you five senses; and you then say, "You came into being from muddy waters, you came from microbes and there is no God." In the name of a so-called science, you fundamentally deny God, Who created all these fruits, all these vegetables, all these animals and plants. That brings about grave disasters. It brings about ruin. Making the system of the Mahdi instrumental, God does not ruin Turkey.

210

Darwinism should be taught in detail in school but the scientific response to it should also be given. Let us simply take fossils and display them in front of classes for students to see. That is it; we do not want anything else. Scientifically, it is not possible for a protein molecule to come about by coincidence; they should say this out loud.

211

In order to grasp the wisdom of the Qur'an, it should be read slowly and in an orderly fashion.

212

Very rare, elect people, those who are specifically been inspired by God, those who are taken into a deep sleep approach the Mahdi (pbuh). Just like the People of the Cave. Such a person would not be able to go anywhere even if he wants to, because it is in his destiny. The will of a genuine student of the Mahdi would not be able to leave him. But the other ones cannot become his students even if they want to.

213

Surat Al-Kahf is a Surah that directly refers to the system of the Mahdi. It entirely explains the system of the Mahdi. But it does so with symbols, with a covert manner of telling. I mean it doesn't do so openly, with overt wording. Those rational ones, those with profundity, those who have the power of reflection will decipher the secrets in the Surat, those symbols by the leave of God, with the revelation of God.

214

Almighty God creates life in a state of sleep; the Qur'an refers to this deep secret. People do not know that they are in a state of sleep in this world. Actually, they all are in a dream right now, they all are dreaming. Some of them, for instance philosophy researchers, realize this fact in a state of awe and dismay.

215

Breaking away from the unbelievers, breaking away from their culture, makes people's minds clean, impeccable and lucid. Many people cannot completely break away from unbelief. They act half as a Muslim and half in disbelief. They live in the culture of unbelievers.

216

Not being self-sacrificing is a grave lack of conscience, it is a lack of moral turpitude. For instance, those Syrians who took refuge in our country are inoffensive people. Of course sheltering them brings about a financial burden and difficulties but it is worth the sacrifice. Let our money be spent instead of watching those children and households be annihilated, see them tortured and in suffering.

217

Muslims become handsome with faith, they become beautiful with trial. If that trial is taken away, Muslims would be devastated, may God forbid. I mean if one does not come across any difficulties, that means they acquire no good merits. We came to this world to be tested; that is why Almighty God says, "Or did you suppose that you would enter the Garden without facing the same as those who came before you?"

218

It will be a grave mistake for Europe to take on ISIS. They cannot succeed with murder, with killing. They should search for the Mahdi, that is our advice to them. Salvation lies in that. It won't work any other way.

219

In the hadiths it has been foretold that ISIS, which is referred to as "...those with black banners, black clothes" will prevail all over the region. Western forces cannot resist this destiny. The only solution is ISIS's allegiance to Imam Mahdi (pbuh).

220

ISIS will pledge allegiance to the Mahdi and then peace will come. With the appearance of Imam Mahdi (pbuh), the bloodshed will come to an end, the suffering and violence will come to an end and terror will cease, there will be no more bullets, weapons and bombs.

221

Imam Mahdi (pbuh) is the only force that will put an end to ISIS. According to the hadiths, those with "black banners" will abide by Imam Mahdi (pbuh) and thus ISIS will come to an end. Other than that, they cannot stop ISIS, let me tell you this much. It is not in their destiny.

222

There were no sects at the time of our Prophet (saas), at the time of the companions. There were no Wahabis, no Sunnis, no Shias. There was only Islam as commanded in the Qur'an.

223

All statesmen in the world should abide by the Qur'an. That is a necessity for politicians to be reasonable and coherent. Have a look at the countries all over the world; you see that coups take place in some of them and people are being executed in others. A majority of them are unstable. They persecute their people.

224

Those who carefully read the Qur'an cover to cover become very wise. They become very stable and talk very reasonably.

225

The Qur'an is the book of reason. Actually the Qur'an is the book of love and reason. When one abides by the Qur'an, he becomes wise, reasonable and balanced.

226

When God opens the heart of a person to Islam, radiance comes to that person's mind and body. He becomes very stable and reasonable. Otherwise people become unstable. Of course such people rarely are calm as well but most of them are unstable. They cannot think reasonably.

227

We talk to them reciting verses and say, "That is what God says in the Qur'an". They reply saying, "This is not what the hodjas we know are saying." Why do you not trust the Qur'an? You do not trust the Book of God. They insistently search for the religion of their forefathers in the Qur'an. They refuse anything else if they cannot find it in the Qur'an. The fact is, however, religion is learned directly from the Qur'an, not from forefathers.

228

There is no such thing to call the success of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). Everything is created by God. God makes Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) instrumental in this. Meaning the triumph of the moral values of Islam and Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) are created separately.

229

Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) does not have an independent power. All power belongs to God: Jesus Messiah (pbuh) does not have an independent power either, because all power belongs to God. People sometimes develop such a polytheistic mindset and imagine that Hazrat Mahdi has an independent, separate power. Actually his first breath and his last breath are all defined in destiny.

230

You cannot stop ISIS: This is their destiny. This has been foretold in the hadiths explicitly. They will stop when the Mahdi (pbuh) tells them "stop". As for the solution, they should go search for the Mahdi. There is no other solution, let me tell you this much. They cannot resist destiny; they are struggling in vain.

231

Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is the solution of ISIS. They've been saying that as well. "We will continue our efforts like this until the appearance of the Mahdi (pbuh). But when the Mahdi appears, we will pledge allegiance to him and we will abide by him," they say.

232

The Call to Prayer should be recited all over the world, in the US and in Europe. That would bring about abundance to these countries, the inauspiciousness upon them would dissipate. For instance, if they were to recite the Call to Prayer in New York, abundance would enfold the whole city.

233

It is not the municipality that builds the highways; God is the One Who builds them. Those roads are inside our minds. You see those roads inside your brain. When you get into your car, you see continuous images of the road inside your brain. Who then created those roads? God created all of them. That is a scientific fact.

234

What we see from the verses is that there is a possibility even for Pharaoh to believe if he is preached to. Then communists, PKK militants, atheists, everyone should be told about religion. How? With a lenient, kind and respectful manner.

235

One worries about how he is going to wake up for the morning prayers, he troubles himself with it. Constantly whining, he says, "How am I to wake up that early?" Yet if you were to say, "We will give you five thousand liras in the morning without any provision", he would not sleep, he would not even blink until the morning. If you were to tell him that he should wash his face fifty times, and wash his arms fifty times and his feet fifty times and that he will be given five thousand liras every morning, millions of people would line up to do this. See that God promises eternal Heaven, yet he fails to do as God commands, because he does not believe in it: If he believed, he would have done that.

236

Being slack in talking about God is an unlawful act. This is an affliction upon the Muslim world. They do not feel the need to preach religion. They say, "There is the Religious Affairs Directorate and they are doing this anyway. Why should we preach religion?" The fact is, however, preaching religion is a religious duty upon all Muslims.

237

No matter how attractive a person is, if God does not bestow love upon that person, they could not be loved. God is the One Who creates that attractiveness, and He is the One Who makes it loved.

238

My friends and I have prepared the ideological foundation for the right wing. It is not possible for a rightist government to come to power without the respective ideology. What did we do? We have fundamentally undermined Darwinism and materialism with scientific proof. The left wing died in Turkey, scientifically and philosophically, and the right came to power only after that. Or else it would not be possible for a rightist party to take a single step forward if Darwinism had remained very robust.

239

One criticizes those he loves. Friends criticize; the criticisms coming from a friend might feel bitter, but they are like medicine.

240

If there is criticism, it means that a country is free. If it is not possible to criticize anything, it is not possible to live in that country. There should be a lot of critics. That is a sign of health, a sign of beauty and liveliness. If no one makes a sound, it means death; that is a sign of death. Opposing journalists, opposing television stations should all be able to voice their opinions loudly.

241

Idolaters can insult, use bad language and attack. God says, "Do not mind them!" Why does God tell us not to mind them? That is because God is the One Who gives them that power. If He wills so, there would be no one to call 'idolater'. God is the One Who creates them and their speech. If He wills it so, He could make them unable to speak. That is why God wants Muslims to have a very calm spirit.

242

Islam is the religion of ease, not difficulty. But radicals have made it very difficult, so much so that it became impossible to live by. That is why a great portion of the people in the Islamic world do not live by Islam.

243

I am looking for the Mahdi (pbuh) and so are you. However not being able to find him, not having seen him yet, does not change the intensity of our activities, our efforts and this will never change. We will continue on this path until we die.

244

People will resist against all Mahdis. That is a sign of his being the Mahdi. Our Prophet (saas) says that Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will strive for 40 years. If the Mahdi were to make progress easily, why would he need to be striving for 40 years? He would have results in less than 40 days. But that is not the case.

245

All the Prophets and Mahdis that have been sent have increased the number of religiously lawful acts and decreased the unlawful acts. But idolaters have always increased the number of unlawful acts and decreased the number of lawful acts. The fact is, however, the number of lawful acts are very high in the true religion.

246

It is obvious that Selahattin Demirtaş is a Muslim. He constantly talks about God and religion. No one can call him irreligious. If a person says "God" even once, that person is considered a Muslim.

247

Iran is a Darwinist nation. If one is a Darwinist, that means he does not believe in God; it means he does not believe in religion. The superstitions Mullahs are preaching are terrifying. Consequently, irreligiousness is very widespread; atheism is very widespread among the youth.

248

A Muslim would never fire a bullet against another Muslim. What could you do against ISIS? You could talk to them. You could say, "You are Muslims and we are Muslims as well. Let us make peace." It is not acceptable to confront Muslims with weapons and guns. It is not acceptable to deal with them with bloodshed or bombs.

249

One says "I am very rich." How can you be rich? He says, "I have a yacht." Where is that yacht? It is inside your brain. Where is that yacht? It is inside my brain. Then how could "you" be rich? All goods, everything belongs to God. Almighty God creates them as shadow things.

250

Those who want to struggle against ISIS should look for the Mahdi (pbuh). They cannot find a way out other than that. They should look for Jesus Messiah. This scourge will continue if they fail to do that.

251

The US could overcome their troubles if they support the system of the Mahdi. Otherwise they can neither save the region, nor get themselves out of trouble. Both the region and the USA will go down. There is no solution other that the system of the Mahdi. They feign ignorance, but the time will come for them to understand, very soon.

252

Misogyny is one of the most distinct characteristics of a radical. They have an indescribable hatred and rage towards women. They hate women. In their own twisted minds, they look down on women when they see them at the streets and think very highly only of themselves.

253

The Great Middle East Project is a project of the system of the antichrist. The system of the antichrist has hatched a plan to break the Islamic world into pieces, to separate it into small fractions and consequently to annihilate it by easily rendering it ineffective. God has ensnared them in their own plot, but you will see this in the coming years.

254

The goal of the Great Middle East Project is to break the Islamic world into pieces. I mean while the system of the Mahdi seeks to attain unity, integrity and being one, the system of the dajjal (antichrist) seeks to break it into pieces.

255

Traditionalist, orthodox Muslims never talk about love. That is a miracle. They do not talk about it under any circumstances. They do not even mention such a beauty, one that is the purpose of the foundation of the universe.

256

Love is the purpose of the foundation of this world. Almighty God would not create the universe if it was not for love. He creates for love. Love is also the purpose of Heaven. Love is the purpose of the trial [of the life of this world] as well. What God wants from us is love.

257

Women are superior beings, they are beautiful beings. God created women and men as equals but women are highly esteemed beings.

258

The Last Day does not come upon the world Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) lives in but people are not aware of this. All the radicals of the world will be hostile against him. They are not even aware that they are alive by courtesy of him. They are not aware that the Last Day does not come about by courtesy of him. Unbelievers, those people who are astray are not aware of the fact that they are living thanks to him.

259

The lovelessness of radicals, their misogyny is incomprehensible. Once you take women on, you would be taking on half of the world. That is because women are mothers. You would thus be taking on half of the world and mothers. When that is the case, Islam would completely fall from power in the world, just like it is right now.

260

Traditionalist, orthodox Islam regards women as half-people. Actually women and men are equals. Almighty God emphasizes this fact in many verses.

261

Islam is a religion that could be widespread in a very short period of time, one that the whole world would love. Islam is not spread because of the repulsiveness of radical men and women; they never talk about love. They have sinister faces. They know nothing about arts, about beauty, about aesthetics. However, what God wants is simple: He says, "Live in this world with peace, full of love, being friendly and brotherly, worshiping Me and loving Me, being careful about what is lawful and what is unlawful so that I will give you plentitude and abundance."

262

The people of Azerbaijan are very dear to us. They are very decent, very well mannered people. They have never been degenerated. They have never been corrupted; they have always remained noble. Mr. Ilham Aliyev has indeed displayed a very rational attitude and never opened the door to radicalism. He has opened the door to real Islam, but closed the door to radicalism.

263

One of the most important characteristics of Azerbaijan is that it is closest to Turkey; Azerbaijan is like Konya, Eskişehir or Istanbul for us. This is how it is known in the whole of Turkey. This is how Turkey is for Azerbaijan.

264

Azerbaijan will open the doors to Turkey at the same time as Armenia. This will be the first spark of the Islamic Union, of the Turkish Islamic Union. A great Turkish Islamic Union will be formed that will embrace Israel as well. The whole region will thus attain relief and peace, insha'Allah.

265

Islam did not totally prevail at the time of our Prophet (saas), but Islam will prevail by means of his son, his commander. It will prevail by means of Mahdi. Whose victory will that be? God's. Whom does God use as an instrument for that? The son of our Prophet (saas). The victory attained by the grandson of our Prophet (saas) will be the victory, the honor of our Prophet (saas).

266

Idolaters do not like the Mahdi, they do not like the second coming of Jesus Messiah, they do not like the Islamic Union. They express this by distorting the truth with their tongues. In the Qur'an God says, “It is He who sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of Truth to exalt it over every other religion, though the idolaters hate it." That is because the idolaters fiercely resist the Islamic Union, they resist the Mahdi, they resist the second coming of Jesus Messiah.

267

Muslims are radiant, immaculate, pleasant, virtuous people, they appear pleasant to the heart and to the eyes. Idolaters, on the other hand, are filthy and they always talk about foulness. They are disgusting. They constantly assume an attitude that – in their twisted minds- mocks religion. Every single idolater has this characteristic; they talk about Islam in a mocking fashion.

268

Idolaters consider the commands of God, the Qur'an as insufficient- may God forbid. In their twisted minds, they attempt to teach morality, they attempt to teach religion to God- may God forbid. That is why they either make additions to or subtractions from Islam.

269

What does idolater mean? It means those who do not consider the Qur'an as sufficient, who do not consider the commands of God as enough, may God forbid, those who attempt to teach religion to God, or those who make additions to the religion God revealed in the name of God.

270

Radicals believe that they are the most devout ones when they turn the life of this world into a life in Hell, when they misrepresent Islam as hellish. For instance, they believe that it is out of piousness when they turn praying into an inextricable act. They believe that it is out of piousness when they make it impossible to perform ablution, whereas God described performing ablution in a single line in the Qur'an.

271

Does Shi'ism have a place in the Qur'an? Does Sunnism have a place in the Qur'an? Where do you come up with those concepts? Does Wahabism have a place in the Qur'an? There is only one Qur'an, there is only one Islam. The only name we all have is 'Muslim'.

272

Radicals had Muslims decimate one another. One party kills the others and vice versa. They took pride in that. "Today we have killed two hundred Shias, praise be to God," they say. The others say, "We have killed three hundred Sunnis today, praise be to God. We have bombed them." This radical understanding of Islam brought about this disaster.

273

Radicals are the ones who have presented Islam as if -may God forbid- it is trouble for the whole world, as if it demands a life like that of Hell and they have ruined many Muslims. They have had Muslims choked, they have had Muslims choked in Iraq, in Syria and in Libya. They have had them crushed all over the world.

274

Radicals have always been obsessed about the marriages of our Prophet (saas), his love for women. They never want to recite or talk about the verses related with that subject. They merely want to gloss over that subject completely. For instance, they do not want to talk about the fact that there are women in the Heaven.

275

The things demanded by the Qur'an are only a few: Performing prayers is explained very briefly in the Qur'an, fasting is explained very briefly and giving alms is explained very briefly. God commands us to be merciful, compassionate, to avoid telling lies, to be true. He commands us to have good intentions and to love one another, to love God a lot; to be of help to one another and to avoid worldly ambitions for goods because everything belongs to God. The commands in the Qur'an are very few. The rest is all about the foulness of the unbelievers, the impertinent behavior of the unbelievers, of the people of heresy and the responses given to them.

276

God is pleased when the Greatness of God is expressed. God does not need it, but He wants love.

277

The Greatness of God gives a great pleasure to a Muslim. It makes Muslims happy. I mean being under the command of the Great and Omnipotent God pleases a Muslim.

278

One says, "These are my goods, my possessions." The fact is however that one has nothing to own, no possessions to lay claim to and everything belongs to God. We are only sent here as guardians for that which actually belongs to God.

279

Distraction is a very widespread trouble. That is why God has deemed being cautious and careful a religious duty. God says "Be careful!" and commands us to be careful.

280

One acts impertinently against our Prophet (saas) and God heaps troubles upon him. He struggles against religion and God heaps troubles upon him. He strives against Islam and God heaps troubles upon him. He struggles against the champion of Islam, against a person serving God and God heaps troubles upon him. Observe what happens to such people and you will see: You will see that whoever struggles against the saints of God, against those who struggle in the Path of God, is plagued by God.

281

Iran is a country that Turkey should urgently become friends with. How nice that they are all Muslims, how nice that they are all devout. How nice that they are one of the strongest military powers of the region. How nice that they have such a settled structure of state.

282

A presidential system means, may God forbid, Turkey being divided by its own hands.

283

When in comfort, they unite against God in wide masses and rebel against God almost worldwide. When they are crushed, they pray to God and beg. What is the need for that crushing? Do not do that, be wise, repent. Be thankful to God and say, “O Lord, You are Great, I do love You so much” and see that God would make blessings rain down on you. Why are you looking for trouble? Why do you go astray and run riot? Why do you crush yourself?

284

The US used to praise God's name profusely and it used to be rich. They started to grovel when they started to invoke God's name less and less. Russia used to invoke God's name less and they were groveling. Now they've started to talk about God and God gave them a little relief.

285

God makes the whole world grovel, the whole world is in a wretched state right now. And that is created specifically. There is no real reason for this world to be poor. There are vast lands. It is possible to carry out all sorts of agricultural activities. There is technology, there is everything. Amazingly, God creates economic crises and famines. There is no real reason for those. They are created miraculously. That is because people forget God. Had they praised God and invoked His Name, riches would have flowed all over them profusely.

286

Give your love to God. He gives his love directly to his child and fails to say, "My Lord, how beautiful You have created my child, how beautiful You manifest Yourself." That is when God gives a lot of troubles. A thousand an done different torments. God either takes away that child from him or gives him a disease or some trouble, or takes away his riches from him. Why do you not say, "O Lord, thanks be to You. How beautiful You create beauties. These are all Your manifestations"?

287

One says, "I do love my child madly." God is the One Who shows that child to you, God is the One Who created your child. The fact is that it is the manifestation of God that you are holding on to, not your child. God manifests Himself in that child and reveals Himself as your child and that is what you actually are holding on to.

288

God wants to be loved with a profound love. God wants a deep, attentive rapport. For instance, God says, "Be thankful to me, render your thanks and invoke My Name frequently." The goal here is to establish a constant connection with Him. God loves to be loved but He loves to be loved greatly and that is Almighty God's due. That is because He is the Owner of everything, He is the Owner of all beauties.

289

What good would it be if one is in Heaven unless he doesn't feel love for God? Muslims take great pleasure from Heaven because they love God.

290

It is Almighty God's due to be loved. He is the Owner of everything, He is the Creator of everything. Then one comes along and forgets God and focuses merely on his own interests.

291

God wants to be loved a lot. Not paying attention to Him offends Almighty God a lot. I mean it offends God. That is why He responds with such troubles cast upon them. This is the reason behind the ruin of the Islamic world.

292

God considers being loved as very important. The goal of God for us is not to love the food and the honey in the Heaven. Almighty God sees His being loved as crucially important. He wants us to love honey and the other beauties of Heaven as manifestations of Him. He would not let us love those blessings independently. Actually, we could not take pleasure from it anyway.

293

God checks up faith related sensitivities. Starting from the Prophet Adam (pbuh) until the Last Day, all people will be put through a perfect trial without any exceptions. No one has ever been granted any privileges that would remove their freewill of mind.

294

God says that, "This world is not the place for play and idle sport. The Heaven is the place for play and idle sport. This world is a place for trial." That is why if you fasten yourself to this world, you would be stuck with it, says God. But if you aim for the Hereafter, if you aim My approval, I will make you happy for all eternity, you will have fun and laugh. Those who fasten themselves to this world would merely grovel, let me say that much. They would merely wallow and flounder. Nothing else would ever happen.

295

Our brothers awaiting the system of the Mahdi are waiting for it as if they are waiting for some great fun. That is not the case. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will pass away just a short while after the global dominion of the moral values of Islam. That is because God does not make Islam prevail for Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) to have fun or for others to have fun. God makes Islam prevail to keep his Word. Heaven is the real place to have fun.

296

The world has no aspect to enjoy things. That is because Heaven is the place to enjoy. Why should people settle for the inadequate pleasures of this world? They carry a ton of wood on their shoulders and then say, "Let us go have fun." That ton of wood on their shoulders will be lifted in the Heaven. You can then have fun. There are various hardships all around this world.

297

The duration of dominion of the system of the Mahdi will be very short. The only goal with it is God saying, "I will keep My promise, see that I will make Islam prevail in the world. It is easy for Me." Or else it is not in the sense of having fun, playing around and making the most of the world.

298

Love of the Mahdi is very fervent among Alewites and Shias. Theirs is a powerful love. Sunnis have an unnecessary languor and that is not something good. They need to make it right.

299

Village rangers are necessary so long as the danger of the PKK exists. When the PKK danger is removed, the rangers can be abolished as well. So long as the PKK remains, so should the rangers.

300

The beautiful aspect of the Gospel is that it talks a lot about love. The Gospel talks a lot about affection, friendship, forgiveness and brotherhood. It is very refreshing in that respect. It is very pleasant.

301

One would go insane without religion. Life would be horrible.

302

There is nothing to be called the YPG. There is nothing to be called PJAK. There is the PKK; these are only various names for the PKK.

303

They should cancel the elections. Before all else they should wipe out the PKK with laws and the legal system. Let the problem of the PKK be solved before all else and then hold elections. Elections cannot be held while the region is being invaded, while the people are being held at gun-point.

304

Being a Freemason doesn't mean that he is irreligious or faithless. I have many Freemason friends and acquaintances, and they all are very devout. There are Catholic ones among them, devout Catholics, there are Rabbis among them, devout Rabbis, there are Chief Rabbis who are Freemasons. I mean Freemasonry does not mean irreligiousness. They should consider Freemasonry as a union, as a community. I mean it is a community aiming to be gracious, a community of friendship and companionship.

305

God is the Owner of Knowledge. God gives us knowledge that He wishes to give. God is the Owner of love as well. We are loved as much as God wishes. God is the Owner of manifestations. When we love a person we love the manifestation of God in that person.

306

All damaged and ruined mosques should be rejuvenated. It would be unlawful to leave them in such a state. They should definitely be revived and rejuvenated. A mosque should remain a mosque until the Last Day. You cannot demolish them and turn them into places of amusement.

307

There are some conditions for the union of a woman and a man. First of all the woman should feel a deep love for that man, she should have a deep respect; she should value and trust that man. She should see that man as her lawful spouse and feel passion in her heart. Only then God could give a feeling of contentment. Attacking the bone and flesh of a woman as if she is a dog is a very atrocious behavior.

308

Forcing a woman into a relationship even though she doesn't have love or affection in her heart, even though she doesn't have such a desire, is outright ignominy, characterlessness and dishonor.

309

We need to open our borders with Armenia and abolish the necessity of passports and visas. Let us embrace our brothers and remove the damage that has been caused by a one-hundred-years-old fascist spirit. A lot of blood had been shed on both sides. This has been brought about by the ruthlessness of fascism. Let us show the whole world that we have put an end to this scourge.

310

Being religious was what brought America prosperity and gave it plentitude, it was what made them happy. But as America left religion aside, disasters enveloped America. The richest state in the world is now on the path to become the poorest. They would again become very rich if they become religious.

311

God wants the world to be beautiful and decorated. He adorns the world gloriously. Radicals, on the other hand, want a dark world. Do not attempt to destroy the adornments created by God, do not try to dispel the adornments created by God. You should be trying to present the adornments created by God in the most beautiful manner.

312

Artists should be given prominence. Their love, their affection, would have a positive impact on society. Artists have a special kindness, they have a special quality of the soul. They could be a very nice example for society in that respect.

313

Love, beauty and art are the goals of life: Without them why would you ever bother to build bridges, why would you bother building tube tunnels from the land or under the sea? All those things would be vain. For love to exist, art and aesthetics nurturing love should be attached great importance.

314

Artists are teachers of love, teachers of beauty. The door should be opened all the way for artists. A Ministry of Arts and Aesthetics should be established.

315

The state should carry out anti-communist, anti-Darwinist activities. The PKK would be done with, long gone, if they had done this. They constantly feign ignorance even though there is an exact solution for the matter and that prolongs the problem.

316

People should be trained regarding love. Love is the main anchor point of the world. There is no life without love.

317

A general amnesty, etc., are unreasonable, dangerous things. Beware! Don't you dare! It would be a devastating disaster to pardon those who killed our soldiers.

318

The Qur'an holds women in high esteem. Women are praised, exalted and protected in the verses. Those who claim that "women are half-people" have a completely different mentality and they are not abiding by the Qur'an in that sense.

319

There will be no payment of interest when Mahdi (pbuh) appears because the collecting of interest is unlawful. No Islamic country could stop it but with the appearance of the Mahdi, it will be stopped. That is because the Mahdi (pbuh) will not make any concessions regarding the Qur'an and he will do whatever is commanded in the Qur'an.

320

Mahdi's facilitating and easing of religion means his removing unlawful acts that are not defined by the Qur'an. For instance, is music unlawful? No: There is no such verse in the Qur'an. He will explain to those who claim that music is unlawful that it is lawful.

321

If artists are not appreciated properly, art will disappear completely in time and then the world will be tarnished. The beauty of the world would then be destroyed. Artists are the ones that beautify the world.

322

The awaited Mahdi (pbuh) will revive Islam and bring life to it by easing it. He will ease religion and remove the chains of radicalism from the shoulders of the people.

323

With radicalism, they have stigmatized Islam throughout the whole world. They want to extinguish the sun of Islam. Hanging people, chopping the up, beating and degrading women, calling them half-people, demanding no music, no pictures, no art, no goodness, no beauty, no affection, no nothing. Are you all mad? It is as if they have a longing for Hell. There is no such thing in Islam.

324

They should give up waiting for a ferocious radical as the Mahdi; no such thing will ever happen. Actually Mawdudi says, "The awaited Mahdi (pbuh) will be the most modern one of his age, he will use science and technology in the most beautiful way."

325

What does Almighty God say for Islam? He says, "It is easy as the religion of the Prophet Abraham." He says, "God desires ease for you; He does not desire difficulty for you." Mahdi (pbuh) will ease religion. What kind of easiness? An unprecedented easiness. Religion will become lighter, the chains will be removed. A very easy religion would be put forth. What religion will that be? The one we see in the Qur'an.

326

Radicals assume that someone more ferocious, "super radical" would be coming as the Mahdi based upon the current radical system. However Mahdi (pbuh) will be the one to facilitate things. He will make religion easier, he will ease the commands of the verses.

327

Women are very much affected by intellect and faith. That is what a woman looks for in a man and a man looks for that in a woman as well. This is not something about flesh and bones; there are very beautiful women but you cannot feel love for them if they are dishonorable. You cannot love them if they are unkind. You cannot love them if they are ungracious. You cannot love them if they are perfidious, egotistic, selfish. You cannot love them if they are unable to think freely and sincerely.

328

There is the threat of the PKK everywhere in the Southeast of Turkey. People are held at gunpoint everywhere; in all the streets, all the avenues, all the villages, all the towns and the elections are being held in such an environment. It is apparent that this will not be a fair election; the elections should be cancelled. It should be held at least six months later. First the weapons should be collected and the elections should be held only after six months so that the elections can be fair. Elections should not be held at gunpoint, under the threat of guns, bloodshed and gunpowder.

329

A Muslim should hold on to God to death. He should accept being martyred, becoming a veteran, to be imprisoned, to be put into an asylum. He should be able to be thankful to God when those things happen. Then God opens his path to the utmost.

330

God prospers those who are sincere and who are devoted to God with a sincere heart, who have accepted ordeals and pains for God. Such people live a happy life. God says that He will open the way for those who are on His path and that He will protect such people. And He does so; that is clearly observed. He gives them victory. These are all explicit, clear miracles, tangible miracles. Nothing bad happens to such people.

331

Almighty God tells us to be thankful and to praise Him. I mean He commands us to be normal, decent Muslims and tells us that He will increase His blessings upon us. And He really does so without any exceptions, He increases His blessings bestowed upon all those who are thankful and who praise Him.

332

If you abide by the Qur'an you cannot say that music is unlawful, you cannot say that paintings, sculptures, having fun and laughing are unlawful; but if you are in a radical conservative system, music, paintings and sculptures are all unlawful.

333

It is not possible to preach religion in the southeast of Turkey, it is not possible to distribute books. We are able to distribute our books as we like in Russia; we are able to organize fossil exhibitions. That is possible even in North Korea but not in the southeast of Turkey.

334

Getting spoiled, running riot and showing off is one within the other. They are showing off and putting on an act for wretched people. You are a wretched being and so are those you put on a show for. You will all die one day, so pull yourself together. At the end of the day, you are made up of flesh and bones. What if you put on a dress? What if you have a state -of -the -art computer? What if you have a nice phone? You will die because you are made up of flesh and bone; they will bury you in your grave and your body will decompose. Why do you get spoiled and run riot then? Why do you show off?

335

You will die eventually and so will those you put on a show for. What is it that you show off? A few clothes, a few accessories, maybe a car, maybe a phone. Well my brother, you will leave all those behind when you go to your grave. Your iPhone will be left on your desk, so will your laptop and you will be buried under the ground with merely a burial robe.

336

Muslims should refrain from falling into disputes and quarreling among themselves. Before all else God deems that unlawful. "Obey God and His Messenger and do not quarrel among yourselves lest you lose heart and your momentum disappear. And be steadfast. God is with the steadfast. " (Surat Al-Anfal, 46) Yet God says that He will punish such acts in this world as well. God says firstly that they will lose heart and that their momentum would disappear. God says that these will happen to those who quarrel among themselves as a preliminary trouble; they lose heart and lose their momentum. So what should a Muslim do in such a situation? He will be steadfast. God protects and watches over those who are steadfast.

337

If one does not know Christianity, Judaism and Islam, that means he does not have a sufficient level of general culture. One should know communism, fascism, Darwinism, materialism: All these philosophies should be taught to our youth in religion courses.

338

Youth should be taught about Islam, Christianity and Judaism comprehensively as a part of general culture. Religion is the main philosophy ruling the world we are living in.

339

Democracy and freedom of thought is something that should be established all around. People should be able to voice and declare their opinions as they like. Cracking open someone's head, causing a scene, screaming all over the place; these acts are barbarity. Animals behave like that. People communicate by talking, they communicate by voicing their opinions. If the person you are talking to is not persuaded by your opinion, then you must simply respect him. One should respect everyone's opinions, everyone's faith.

340

It would not be acceptable if they try to present the war the PKK is waging as an arbitrary war. The reason behind the attacks of the PKK is to establish an independent state in the southeast of Turkey as they have explicitly stated many times.

341

In the near future, Muslims will forge an alliance with Christians. Christians will embrace the belief in the Oneness of God. So Christianity will turn into Muslim Christianity.

342

Miraculously, unbelievers are crushed considerably. They are constantly being crushed yet they fail to understand why. God causes a tightness in their hearts and they fail to understand why. They assume that all those things happen by coincidence. How could all those be coincidences? Why don't you use your mind? Every single day you are having trouble, every single day you are hurting.

343

If Muslims use their minds correctly, if they put their trust in God and love God as is due, there would be no fear and sadness for them. They would never feel fear. They would never feel any distress. But that is on the condition that they love God as He wants to be loved, that they put their trust in God as He wants them to do.

344

Women are very beautiful beings. They are the ornaments of this world. The world should attach great importance to women. If one is unable to appreciate the value of women, if he is unable to see such a beauty, the eye in his heart is blind.

345

What did Ataturk do? He turned religion into its original form. He assumed an attitude against radicalism: We are able to talk in comfort right now because of that. Without Ataturk, Turkey would have been no different from Syria or Iraq; it would have been far worse.

346

Islam would have prevailed in the world long ago. That did not happen only because they have inflicted such torture and torment upon women.

347

Satan complicates religion and people thus keep aloof from religion. They transformed Islam into the most terrifying religion in the world right now. They misrepresent it as a system that kills all life, that removes all aesthetics, all the beautiful aspects of life, as a system that demands terror, that demands bloodshed and that ruins life. The fact is however, Almighty God says, " God desires ease for you; He does not desire difficulty for you." And He says " God has selected you and not placed any constraint upon you in the religion —as in the religion of your forefather Abraham."

348

Radicals consider the commands of God in the Book He sent as insufficient. For instance, salat (prayers) is explained in the Qur'an yet they see it as insufficient and try to add things to it. Fasting for instance; they look at the Qur'an and see it as insufficient. They try to add things to it. They try to add things to every other religious act. But if there is something that is in conflict with their own interests, then they try to subtract things from those commands. They say, "This verse has been nullified, the command of this verse has been lifted".

349

One has a mistake or a flawed aspect in his personality, he confesses to it yet still goes on to act on it. Alright, you might have a flaw, but you need to fight it and get rid of it. One keeps on saying, "I am ignorant, I wouldn't know." Well, increase your knowledge then. One says, "I have a jealous personality." Well, remove that jealousy and educate yourself. Or one says that he has cowardice. Be brave then.

350

The Turkish people would never give way to anything that would divide Turkey. Separation is one point that the Turkish people are most sensitive about. This is the reason why our soldiers and our policemen gave their lives and became martyrs.

351

I am the one in Turkey who protects and loves the Shias dearly. I believe that they are perfect Muslims: I consider them as Muslims deeply in love with the Mahdi (pbuh). I love Wahhabis dearly. For instance many Muslims hate them, they consider them as irreligious. I see them as devout Muslims. I see Shias as devout Muslims as well..

352

They cannot deal with ISIS using violence. The struggle against ISIS should definitely be with opinions, with love and with the system of the Mahdi. It would not be possible any other way.

353

One needs to enhance his sincerity in time. Sincerity should cause problems for one. Sincerity lands one on something. You act sincerely and become sleepless. You act sincerely and it makes you tired.

354

There is no other being other than God. God is beyond time or place. There is no such thing as place or space in the Sight of God; there is only the condition of place. There is only the shadow of it. Only God is Absolute.

355

Sincerity costs one a lot. One would suffer through ordeals, get tired and even get into trouble. If you are living an easy life and show interest only in things that directly affect your interests, if you protect your own interests as if you are protecting a baby, where is sincerity in this?

356

There is no need to consume such an extraordinary amount of energy for attaining deep faith. If a person is very sincere, a deep faith would instantly be formed. They are imagining that religion is very difficult. They say, "You need to ponder deeply, you need to think deeply." Actually one cannot succeed at thinking deeply through mere willpower; God is the One Who will make one think deeply. A person does not have any individual power. What we need to do then is to be sincere. We have to be sincere and ask for it from God.

357

The PKK is bound to be defeated. According to the command of the Qur'an, according to the laws of God, they are bound to be defeated right from the beginning. It is absolutely impossible for the PKK to be victorious.

358

The reason why they are trying to strengthen the PKK is to sever the bond of the southeast region with the Islamic world and to create a block there. This is their goal. They are trying to create a great barrier on a wide area starting from the Black Sea to Mersin and sever the bond between the Islamic world with the Turkish world. We would never let this happen, even at the risk of our lives.

359

People will pledge allegiance to Mahdi (pbuh), they will pledge allegiance to Jesus Messiah. The world becomes crazy without a leader. There is nothing to misunderstand about this.

360

There will be a lot of false Mahdis and false Jesuses at the time of the system of the Mahdi. The most important sign of those false Mahdis will be that they will openly claim to be the Mahdi.

361

Resistance against the system of the Mahdi will improve it even further. They are constantly putting people who are against the system of the Mahdi on television and that makes people wonder why that is. This makes the system of the Mahdi progress even further.

362

Only a handful of people with genuine faith have empowered the faith of the whole world.

363

With Darwinism, all the countries in the world are saying, "There is no God and there are no Prophets and all the Holy Books are lies." That holds true for Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria, Egypt and all of the others. It is a miracle that the Last Day did not come yet. Almighty God is letting the world survive because of the Mahdi right now.

364

When one is a Darwinist, he is saying, "I do not love You" to God, may God forbid and he is saying, "I do not believe in You." He would thus be challenging God - God is surely far and beyond all these claims.

365

God is love. Almighty God loves His servants, and He wants His servants to love Him as well.

366

We have love inside and out; we have love in our hearts. It is love that will save the world. God wants love. The Qur'an tells us about love from cover to cover. The Qur'an is the book of love.

367

We will unite Armenia with Turkey. We will open up our borders and abolish the necessity of carrying passports and needing visas. It will be possible to come to Turkey from Armenia merely with an identity card and vice versa. This issue will then be resolved.

368

Since we do not make any claims about a genocide, it would not be right for our Armenian brothers to make any claims about a genocide. There was a war going on. What should be done is to bind up the wounds of that war altogether with friendship and brotherhood.

369

People saw that they can be religious in their hearts and souls. They have seen that they can listen to music; they have seen that women can wander around without covering their heads yet be religious and perform their prayers at the same time. Therefore, religion has become widespread covertly in Turkey and found a great foundation everywhere.

370

Mahdi (pbuh) will be out in the open and explicit. He will openly be subjected to injustice; he will openly suffer ordeals but people will overlook that and fail to see it. That is very astounding. He will be subjected to unprecedented persecution. Later on people will say, "This persecution took place right in front of our eyes, how did we fail to see this, how could we overlook something like that?"

371

Prophet Jesus (pbuh) is very handsome. He will appear as a European- looking young man. As a beautiful, decent, smart young man, who does not remember his past. This would not have such a shocking impact as is presumed. That is because everything will be open to doubt. He would not say, "I certainly am Jesus." He would say, "I look like him. I might be him."

372

Even though we did not enter a war, we always remained poor. Darwinism is at the root of this inauspiciousness. Darwinism is -may God forbid- rebelling against God. May God forbid, Almighty God might raze our country to the ground. The land and the skies might crack open if that happens. God says "The heavens are all but rent apart and the earth split open and the mountains brought crashing down." God is explicitly being denied with Darwinism.

373

Our Prophet (saas) learned what is unlawful from the Qur'an. There is no unlawful or lawful apart from what is in the Qur'an. The Companions asked our mother Hazrat Aisha (ra) "What is the sunnah of Rasulullah?" And she replied "the Qur'an." So do not invent things. Lawful and unlawful acts are only defined by the Qur'an.

374

If you accept this land as your homeland, if you accept this state as your state, you should be aware that this state has established rules, it has a constitution. "Everyone living within the borders of this land is Turkish." What does this mean? That means we are brothers. No matter what happens, you can be an Armenian, you can be Kurdish, Laz, Turkish, we will name all of you Turkish and live altogether in peace. That is great.

375

Almighty God states in the Torah that the whole region will be under the control of Muslims in the End Times. God says "You will prevail in the whole region from the Nile to the Euphrates, including Mecca and Madinah, including the Mediterranean and Cyprus. And one from the line of the Prophet David (pbuh) will be heading that community." That person is the Mahdi (pbuh).

376

The jinn cannot do anything God did not will. Consequently if God wishes to cast troubles upon a person, He could do so with the jinn or with cars, with cancer or with anything else of His choosing.

377

Many people are scared to death of the jinn. A jinni can never do anything to you, what could they do? The jinn are under the control of God. They ascribe partners to God and assume that they are able to act independently from God. Isn't God the One Who gives the jinn that power? How could a jinni do something not defined in destiny?

378

Those following the Mahdi, those who are God-fearing are the students of the Mahdi (pbuh) and - God willing- they are the people of Heaven. Our Prophet (saas) refers to those 313 students as the center.

379

If you have a beautiful mind and a beautiful conscience, God would bring a beautiful person into your destiny. Why did God bring about that much beauty for the Prophet Solomon (pbuh). The Prophet Solomon (pbuh) did not attain those beauties by striving and by working for it. God gave them to him because of his piety.

380

Religion is easiness. God says; "We will ease you to the Easy Way." He says " God desires ease for you; He does not desire difficulty for you" and " He has selected you and not placed any constraint upon you in religion- the religion of your forefather Abraham."

381

If there is a fervent love, that means there is a fervent faith. If one has a fervent love for a woman, you should know that he possesses a fervent faith. That is the sign of it.

382

One should close the door to misgivings during the prayers: That is because you do not avoid performing prayers, you do not avoid taking ablution. Since you are there to take your ablution, you do not avoid doing so. You wash your hands and face. You do whatever is required. If that is the case why should you be doubtful?

383

When one asks for love, he should first aim for the love of God. No love can be formed if there is no love for God or fear of God.

384

Love is something that widens as one uses his mind. It develops in proportion to one's mind. For instance, you act loyally and the love you receive increases. You show compassion and the love you receive increases. You act patiently and the love you receive increases. You protect and watch over others, the love you receive increases. You think deeply and act considerate, the love you receive increases. You talk kindly and it increases; you refrain from telling lies and it increases. You constantly act honestly and it increases. You constantly approach others warmly with good intentions and it increases. One would detest the other if he sees anything contrary.

385

Man is a being made up of blood, flesh and bones. Man possesses a thousand and one different weaknesses. How could one feel love for that? One would be insane. One could only be loved if he possesses the soul of God, if he is a noble being, if he is a being that would live for all eternity.

386

If a person does not believe in God, it would be impossible to find it in one's soul to trust that person. How could one see the other person if he does not possess the mind to see God? If one does not have it in his heart to be thankful to God, how could it be possible for him to thank another person? How could one be loyal to a servant of God if he cannot be loyal to God? It is faith that ensures the energy and nobility of love.

387

The Last Day will break loose if they attempt to divide Turkey. They should pull themselves together. No one should see Turkey cheap. We would not allow such vileness. We would not let them divide Turkey. We would not give way to the path leading Turkey to being separated. For example, federalism means officially dividing Turkey. We will not allow that either. When the presidential system goes together with federalism, we would not accept it.

388

The goal of the deep Western states is to divide Turkey into federations, to separate the southeast, to found a communist state, to divide Antalya, to divide İzmir, to divide Istanbul, may God forbid. We need to hold on to each other tightly, without any concession in this period that all these plots are intensified; we need to preserve our unity and solidarity.

389

The Western forces have sat their minds on breaking Turkey to pieces ever since the Treaty of Sevres. They were very determined to put the treaty into effect; they never relinquished that. That is why they consider the presidential system as ideally suited.

390

The presidential system is the greatest danger for Turkey right now. That is because if the PKK ever dares to make a move to divide Turkey, if they ever dare to make such an attempt, we will give respond with laws and the legal system. But with the presidential system there is nothing to do; Turkey would thus be dragged into a grave disaster, into a system that would break Turkey into pieces.

391

Those who mock the ones preaching do so because they are fiercely effected, or else why would they bother to do so? They would have never bothered if they were not effected, they would have gone about their own business. They mock merely to calm themselves: That is because their good conscience starts disturbing them. That is a precaution taken by unbelievers against that disturbance.

392

If you define the reward you get while preaching religion as three in numbers, it becomes thirty when you do it after being mocked. If the severity of mocking is high, it would be three hundred. If it is very very severe, it would be three thousand, let me say. What is your goal? Is it not an act of worship? God creates an act of worship for you.

393

They say, "We are preaching Islam, but they mock us." Who is the One that makes them mock? God is the One Who does that. He creates it at the same time with the preaching. It is a hidden honor created by God to increase the worth of preaching, of that act of worship. It is against unbelief, it is in favor of Muslims. It is an honor for Muslims and a scourge on disbelief. When you do not take that mocking seriously, your reward would increase many fold.

394

For you to believe in love in Heaven you need to show self-sacrifice, bravery, patience, cleanliness and piety. A Muslim feels sure of himself because he shows that morality; he feels sure of being loved. Those who love him, love him in that respect anyway.

395

There is no patience in Heaven, there is no courage, there is no reason to be courageous. You cannot be patient, courageous, brave. There is nothing to resign one's self to. Purity, self-sacrifice, none of those exist in Heaven. It is the abode of fun. Of course there is being thankful and praising, there is seeing the Manifestations of God and loving.

396

The trial of Muslims is really difficult. I mean an easy trial would be very humiliating for Muslims. That means there is really a painful situation for that person, that means there is something weird. The tougher one's trial, the better it is for him.

397

"God loves the steadfast." That is how we recognize love. If one cannot be steadfast, that means he does not have love. For instance, one might have a loved one but it is important for him to preserve that love; I mean love cannot be for only two days. Some are like this, they love only for a day. They have love for a night. They have a fancy to be blunt. But a Muslim wants love for a lifetime and for all eternity.

398

Patience is an act of worship. Waiting as a form of worship is called patience. In toleration, one simply endures. Patience is the name of that act of worship. I mean like prayers, it is the name the act of worship.

399

There is a special system organizing poverty in the world. There are individuals leading that system and there are those who give orders to them as well. There are those who give orders to those who give orders. There are those who they cannot see giving orders. Poverty is specifically being organized and they cannot stop it. God says, "I bring about poverty when they fail to be thankful." What God says happens, people cannot stop it.

400

A youth that appreciates spiritual values should be brought up immediately for Great Turkey.

401

A presidential system is very dangerous. We can never accept this. Such a system would break Turkey into pieces.

402

Masoud Barzani should cooperate with Turkey. He should strive with all his might to wipe out the PKK with laws and justice and he should not struggle against ISIS either. The PKK is the greatest danger, the biggest enemy in the region. He should turn all his attention to the PKK.

403

Young girls are very fragile, flower -like beings. If you do not pay attention they could fade away. They should be very well looked after and cared for everywhere they go.

404

The number of Muslims France killed in Algeria alone is 1.5 million. Is that not genocide? They gunned down all these unarmed people with automatic weapons; they raked them with machine guns. Is this not genocide? It is. But they [the French] do not accept this.

405

The presidential system is horrifying. This system brings about inauspiciousness. The blood of our martyred soldiers has not even dried yet. That is shameful and sinful. Did our soldiers give all that struggle for this? You come and say we want "the American model" and refer to a "United States of Turkey": That would be the ruin of us.

406

Mahdi (pbuh) will be the one who will save Iran. God made Shias love him this much and they are the ones who appreciate the Mahdi. They should hold on to the Mahdi (pbuh). Yet they are only talking about the Mahdi (pbuh) very rarely; that is very bad. Especially their head of state should bring the place down with the name of the "Mahdi".

407

Iran should hang on to the system of the Mahdi, for the sake of God and bring it up. They should bring up that name very frequently; they will find their salvation there. However they should do so not in the form of superstitions but rationally, sincerely and scientifically. Let them do as I have said and they will see the result.

408

The Mahdi (pbuh) will bring about modernity, beauty, love, friendship and brotherhood; he will break the chains on Muslims. He will bring about the understanding of Islam as it was in the time of the Companions of our Prophet (pbuh). The world will become a place like Heaven. This will certainly happen, even if they try to prevent it. God will create this beautiful outcome with His Name, “Al-Jabbar”.

409

It is very wrong to look for the Mahdi at the bottom of a well and it is also very wrong to deny the Mahdi: Within the clear, explicit hadiths, one should look for the Mahdi (pbuh) with a sincere conscience.

410

Even idolaters believe that God is the One Who creates those idols. Darwinists believe that coincidences created everything. Such unruliness, such defiance against God – may God forbid- has never been seen or heard before.

411

Darwinism can be taught extensively but its scientific response should be given comprehensively as well. Paleontological evidence should be exhibited and shown to people by the state in every possible case. Darwinism is actually the most fabricated, most irrational, most vicious philosophy, one that makes satan laugh fiercely.

412

In all Islamic countries, Darwinism is being taught to youth in public schools as an indispensable part of the curriculum. No one can teach anything else. In the thousands of years of the history of the civilization, there has never been such a belief system that completely – may God forbid- rebels against God. Right now, almost 99% of the world is defying – may God forbid- God with Darwinism.

413

Muslims cannot unite without the Mahdi (pbuh).

414

God increases the scourges casted upon people a thousand times as they assume an attitude against the Mahdi (pbuh). Almighty God ruins and makes havoc of the whole Islamic world. Mahdi (pbuh) is the key point.

415

Uniting the Islamic world is Heaven on Earth. Even if only Iran and Turkey united, Islam would easily and rapidly prevail in the world. But there should be no sectarian ambitions and there should be a very sincere love among them.

416

It is not right to hamper any religion. Let them spread their religions. Let Christians spread Christianity, let Jews spread Judaism, let Muslims spread Islam. So long as societies are religious; before all else, it is very important for societies to embrace religion.

417

Radicals have turned this world into a living hell by arbitrarily saying "this is shameful, that is unlawful." As a result of that, introverted, schizoid societies come about; people fall sick [mentally and spiritually].

418

Our Kurdish brothers love their homeland, their state and their people fervently; they love our soldiers. They all are God fearing, conscientious people. They would never side with communists, Stalinists and anarchists.

419

As a nation, the Kurds are blessed people; they come from sufferings. People who suffered ordeals become very decent and very polite. They appreciate the worth of love and kindness. I would never leave my Kurdish brothers to the hands of those communists.

420

The PKK constantly lies. Lies constitute a crucial part of communist propaganda. Communist lies are actually the worst kind of lies.

421

Prophet Solomon (pbuh) has a very intense, constant and very rational connection with God. That is very important: He never forgets God, not even for one minute and not for one second.

422

No one could ever touch the Al-Aqsa Mosque. The Al-Aqsa Mosque will be demolished only once and that will be on the Last Day. Other than that, neither humans nor djinns can ever do anything.

423

There are constant negatives and positives in this world. For instance, night and day, good and bad, beautiful smells and bad smells, good food and bad food, fear and trust; everything is created with its opposite. But that is not the case in Heaven. So everything will be one -sided and everything will be positive.

424

There are no grumpy people in Heaven; no one acting harsh, no one being impertinent, no one being greedy. There is no anger, no fear, nothing of that sort in Heaven.

425

You will find everything that you like within your culture, within your knowledge; all that you fancy, all that you imagine in Heaven. For instance, some like car racing, some like boat races, some like swimming and some like painting. And they will all find their likings in Heaven.

426

Some people are puzzled and ask, "How can there be motor racing in Heaven?" Or else, "How can there be cinemas?" Actually, all these blessings are presented to us here as examples anyway; they are given to us here for us to get to know them.

427

Competition is something our Prophet (saas) sees as acceptable; it is something religion considers as acceptable. It is also seen in Heaven. Muslims will have fun racing each other. They will have motor races, boat races to have fun, or have footraces or horse races.

428

Children who die young will remain as the children of Heaven. They will run around and have fun, play games and laugh there.

429

God will manifest Himself to the people of Heaven whenever He likes. In an account it is stated that "He will manifest Himself on Fridays" but it is clearly understood from other accounts that He will frequently manifest Himself. And it is stated that this is the one blessing that Muslims would enjoy the most in the Heaven.

430

The PKK has no force against ISIS. They merely fear and flee, that is all. They go into runaway mode and flee. Or they put on a skirt and flee.

431

Abdullah Öcalan would never want [the PKK] to lay down weapons. He would be crushed before all else. They would not give any consequence to him. On such an occasion, the movement of the PKK would completely be devastated.

432

Christianity, Judaism, and Islam should be taught in religion courses. Shiism, Alevism, Bektashism should all be taught. This is [part of] general culture.

433

Alevis are very decent, reasonable people. They are the masters of maturity and profundity. Alevis are not communists. They are lovers of God; they are sagacious intellectuals. Consequently, they would not be deceived, they have superior personalities.

434

Love is the portent of believing in God. When one believes in God, love would instantly be formed. God would instantly embed love in their hearts. In the verse, Almighty God says; "As for those who have faith and do right actions, the All-Merciful will bestow His love on them."

435

One might be an atheist. Being an atheist is a crime in the Sight of God, not before His servants. You cannot interfere with that. In the verses of the Qur'an, God says; "Say; you have your religion and I have my religion." One might be an atheist, one might be devout, one might have another religion; all are possible. God says "There is no compulsion in religion."

436

Our Kurdish brothers are radiant and they are very devout. They read the Treatise of Light, they read the hadiths, they sit together and read the Qur'an. That is not what the PKK wants; that is because the PKK is Godless and Bookless.

437

You imagine that you are going to be able to divide this country and disregard the pride, honor and dignity of this nation and then live as you like, is that so? That will never, ever happen.

438

They imagine that they can divide Turkey and still live as they like. That is not something that could ever be done; the Last Day would break loose upon them. Not even a bug will remain alive on the Last Day. The world will merge with the Moon. The mountains will turn to sand. No living being will remain. I am saying this because there is something I know.

439

Animosity against Jews is a mental disease. It is a disease of faith. They are the children of the Prophet Israel (pbuh), they are the children of the Prophet Jacob (pbuh); they are entrusted to us by God. Hatred against them would be against the words of the Qur'an, against the verses of the Qur'an; that is not something that a Muslim could ever do.

440

Politics is like a great sea of troubles. The world of politics is very dark. There is an egotistical and selfish structure. It has cruel methods. There is no room for loyalty and fidelity in politics.

441

A Muslim would not believe in nonsensical superstitions. He would not believe in irrational, impertinent things. There is a rational, sensible understanding of Islam. We can neither make an addition, nor subtraction from religion.

442

ISIS is a movement of the Mahdi, but of course it is null and void. They have deficient aspects. With the appearance of the Mahdi (pbuh) they will be corrected as well. The Houthis are a movement of the Mahdi as well.

443

If I ever let them divide Turkey, may God make me not benefit from life at all. We would not let our country be divided. There will be no presidential system. We will not let them turn our country into a “United States of Turkey”. They should forget about it, that is not possible.

444

One remains standing only with love. When the system of love is disturbed, the whole body falls ill.

445

Well intentioned, truehearted women are very beautiful. When they are filled with evil thoughts inside, their faces would become very ugly and they would lose their sense of reason. They become repulsive.

446

The Prophet Moses (pbuh) was very faithful, and so was his brother. God saved the whole nation for their sake. Or else they would have perished there.

447

Islam is not something that would be spread with exerting excessive energy. God ensures that Islamic moral values prevail. It is also related in the Torah that "God would make religion prevail in the world, merely with 12 people with strong connection with God." There is no need for such a crowd.

448

Islam would not prevail through politics. Revealing and explaining the miracles of the Qur'an, explaining the facts leading to faith, citing the faithful, powerful people as an example, spreading the love of God: This is what we should be dealing with.

449

Politics is very cruel in itself. It is not easy. That is why what those who strive for spreading Islam should be doing is to explain the facts leading to faith, explaining the miracles of the Qur'an, reinforcing their own faith and fervor. Otherwise they cannot cope with such things.

450

Politics is complex. Those who are concerned with Islamic Union will not come up with anything from politics but politics can be directed rationally from a distance.

451

The universe is created for love. Love is the foundation of the universe: Love, compassion, mercy, forgiveness. Saying "You hit me, I will hit you back ten times," is not an acceptable mindset.

452

We need to increase the number of special forces police officers. We need to increase the number of their schools. Our President should do such a noble thing. Special forces and the Maroon Berets. These ignoble PKK militants are being trained for a long time, for 6 to 8 years. Our lions, our soldiers are coming from different corners of our country, they are novices, those dear ones of mine, and then they are dragged into an armed conflict with the PKK. That is not acceptable. The PKK fears special operation forces.

453

Clawing is a characteristic of a lion. Roaring is a characteristic of a lion. Our army would also roar and claw when needed as they are lions as well.

454

The reason why women do not get involved with politics is that it is a very merciless system. It is a system of gossip, a system of corruption; an inconceivable flywheel operates. Wherever you go, you see it more or less. Of course in the time of the system of the Mahdi there will be no such thing, there will be no such merciless system. They are tormenting themselves in vain.

455

The political world is something completely different. It is a cruel, merciless system. It is a system in which the best person would instantly be chewed up, a system that requires an enormous spirit of competition and tough struggles.

456

Without explaining the invalidity of Darwin's theory of evolution with scientific evidence, without subverting Darwinism, communism itself cannot be subverted.

457

Love would not come about out of the blue. God has based love upon a thousand and one different arts. Love is built upon those arts and thus brings about the greatest power on earth. The most splendid power of the universe would thus be formed; the power of love.

458

Love is the goal of the creation of Hell as well. I mean God creates Hell to make people appreciate the worth of love, in order for people to make comparisons.

459

God loves love. He created the universe for love. God, Himself loves love.

460

It would be Hell when there is no love. God adorns Paradise as the abode of faith, He adorns Paradise with love. That is love for God, that is faith. Or else it is not the facilities in Paradise that make us happy but the existence of God.

461

Love is the goal of the Paradise. Let us imagine that one goes to Paradise. Let us assume that there are rivers, fruit trees, mansions; there are vineyards and gardens, there are people, but there is no love. What would such a place be? May God forbid, that would be Hell. It will be Paradise only with love.

462

Love is the goal of religion.

463

The life span of the system of the antichrist is 40 years. What happens in 1979? Mahdi (pbuh) appears. The 40 years' struggle of Imam Mahdi (pbuh) will end about 2019. On the fortieth year, God will give him exoneration, insha'Allah.

464

There is no way to stop ISIS right now. The solution of ISIS is with Imam Mahdi (pbuh), with Jesus Messiah. You will see that there will be profuse bloodshed all through 2015, 2016, 2017. Until 2019.

465

We, as citizens, of course have the utmost respect for law, but judges and prosecutors should be easily held responsible. They are humans as well, just like all other citizens they should easily be held responsible. Only then we would have a healthy, sound Turkey.

466

The Qur'an wants Islamic Unity. The Qur'an wants an imam to be assigned; wants Muslims to have a leader and thus refers to the system of the Mahdi.

467

We would not let Turkey be separated, neither would we let them build prestige for Abdullah Öcalan. They are striving in vain on television. We would not let that happen so long as we are here. Our people would not let them and I would not let them either.

468

They are trying to build prestige for Öcalan. Almost all of our 80 million people – that is because some people are forced to side with the PKK - do not love Öcalan at all. They hate him because he caused the martyrdom of so many of our soldiers; they all loathe him. They still have a grudge against him. Consequently such propaganda would not work. They are pushing in vain.

469

A very good characteristic of our nationalist idealist youth is that they are very brave and tough. All of our Turkish youth should be brave and tough in that sense. Cowardice is not acceptable. Male and female, all our youth should be brave and tough when the safety and unity of homeland is concerned.

470

The spirit deceased Chief Türkeş has given to our youth is one that should be taught in philosophy textbooks, one that should be an official policy of the state. Our youth should be brought up by that spirit. They fail to do this and that is grave danger.

471

Due to the geographical structure of the region, technically the PKK would not lay down their weapons anyway. There is ISIS in the region, there are many radical organizations. These organizations all are out to get the PKK and kill them when they find them. According to their own mindset, PKK militants believe that they have to have weapons for self defence. In this case, that is all that it takes. They would never lay down their weapons, it is not possible.

472

It is technically not possible for the PKK to lay down their weapons. That is a remorseless diversion; that is a shameful, grim and very unbecoming assertion. The moment they lay down their weapons, no one would ever take Öcalan seriously [again]. No one would give him the time of the day, he would become an ordinary prisoner. The weapons the PKK holds on to are the only reason for the respect he is being shown.

473

Our state should watch over and protect our village rangers. Their number should be doubled. They should be provided with automatic, well-made , state of the art, long range weapons, to create a deterrent force. These brave ones should be turned loose upon the PKK like panthers.

474

Prophets would never come up with additional lawful and unlawful acts on their own accord if they are not defined in the Qur'an. There is an explicit verse in the Qur'an about this.

475

Religion is a system that gathers all the beauties of the world inside. There is joy in religion, there is merriness, there is fun, there is music in religion. Ladies can wander around comfortably, they can wear revealing clothes if they like and cover their heads if they like; no one interferes them. They can laugh as they like, they can have tattoos if they like. Religion would not interfere with such things. Religion commands us to have a good conscience and be conscientious, to be honest, to be reasonable, to be meticulous about what is lawful and what is not. Religion is the other name of joy.

476

There is no need for any of these weapons. All weapons will be annihilated at the time of the Mahdi (pbuh); weapons and all other sorts of things made for killing people. People are for loving, not for killing. It is horrible to make things to kill people. All that will be annihilated, insha'Allah.

477

Drones are unconscious beings. They kill everyone; women, children, anyone whoever, they kill them all. Turkey would never arbitrate such a horrific murder. We would not let this homeland be used in such dirty works.

478

A Muslim would never kill another Muslim. One who does that would be committing murder. Instigating murder, arbitrating murder are all like committing murder. Beware! ISIS is a Muslim group. They have their mistakes, they have their faults but ISIS consists of Muslim youngsters. Whoever bombs and kills them would be committing murder. And God says "...the reward of this is an eternal life in Hell."

479

Weapons are the reason for the respect shown to the PKK lot anyway. Weapons are the only reason for the respectful and kind approach many people adopt right now. They would all humiliate them, they would never give any consequence to those PKK lot.

480

The PKK militants are trained communists, Marxists, Leninists, Stalinists. Why should they lay down weapons? They would never do that. It would be wrong to crush our people's determination for struggle by saying "They will lay down weapons."

481

Turkey would naturally be divided in a presidential system. It would be divided despite the precautions taken. Troubles would be knee deep. Troubles would engulf us all around. We should be intensely determined against separation; we need to take intense precautions, because there is a grave danger.

482

One who holds the filth of hatred in his soul would constantly swim in a sea of troubles. One should avoid hatred. One should only put love in his heart. The heart cannot deal with filth and cleanliness in turns. One should only put love in his heart. The heart would feel uncomfortable with filth.

483

Being vengeful is very bad. One needs to see the good in everything; one needs to look everything with love. Being a person of hate is a grave immorality. One should approach everyone with love.

484

Some hearts are treacherous and some are elated. Some hearts are wretched and some are elated. Ladies with elated hearts have very beautiful hearts and are very open to love. Those who fall into treachery keep groveling in vain.

485

Our people do not want a presidential system; it is dangerous. Our soldiers have been martyred for that reason, our police officers have been martyred for that reason, just for Turkey not to be separated. The United States of America is a "United State" as the name says. In the USA model presidential system, Turkey will be formed by states. It is the picture of our devastation. What good would that have on us? We would be broken into pieces, may God forbid.

486

Love will be completely embedded in the hearts of Muslims. Love is the law of the universe, the purpose of the creation of the universe. Imam Mahdi and Jesus Messiah will teach love to everyone.

487

Imam Mahdi (pbuh) is the one who provides an environment for Jesus Messiah. Jesus Messiah comes as a guest, so he would not have such an active task. He would be very influential in the foreign policy of the world; together with his students, he would be influential on people like Putin and Prince Charles of England. But he would have such a significant influence. That is because Jesus Messiah cannot make himself apparent, but that is not the case with Mahdi (pbuh).

488

We will never allow separation in this homeland. May God forbid me the enjoyment of life if I ever let that happen. We, none of us, would ever let that happen.

489

Kurdish people are very dear to us. They are very dear to me, I would give my life for my Kurdish brothers. But we will make life unbearable for these scum of the PKK with the laws and the legal system. You will see this.

490

God says, "Man is indeed wrongdoing and ignorant." God says that people are ungrateful. One needs to seek refuge in God from being ungrateful. One needs to seek refuge in God from being wrongdoing and ignorant.

491

Loving God as is due is very important, it is the most important. One needs to give his attention to God, understand His Greatness well and love Him greatly. In the Qur'an, God says; "They do not measure God with His true measure." That shows it offends God. "I am giving you that much blessings, that much beauties, you are to appreciate Me." Yet people fail to do that.

492

Humans die, atoms don't. They continue with their regular, great energy. Atoms do not get sick, they don't get cancer, they don't have ulcers, they do not have stomachaches. They put their trust wholeheartedly in their Lord, they continuously revolve around them like a dervish. For how long? For 15 billion years. What ever you do, even if mountains and rocks coalesce into one, even if everything burns out and is reduced to ash, atoms would continue to revolve without even minding. Masha'Allah, have a look at the power God gave.

493

The world is like a tiny piece of dust in the vast universe. We are even immensely smaller than the tiny dust on that tiny being. But Almighty God rules over all of it; He doesn't sleep but we do. He doesn't get ill, neither does He die. He rules over all the atoms in the universe. God has limitless power. It is very important to have the reasoning to appreciate that, to have the attention and will power to appreciate that.

494

With the love of God, with the fear of God, everything would be nice. Everything and everyone ends up loving God wholeheartedly and having sincere faith.

495

The owners of Turkey are very strong. The national idealist youth are the owners of Turkey, the youth of the BBP are the owners of Turkey, the devout youth of the Saadet Party are the owners of the Turkey, the active and lively youth of the CHP, the devout youth of the AK Party are the owners of Turkey. Consequently no one could ever play games with Turkey.

496

The PKK is not a Kurdish political movement. It is a communist movement. They come up with racist statements. In order to persuade people easily they come up with a spirit of racism. In fact they are an open and explicitly Stalinist, communist, materialist, Godless, Bookless structure. Treachery and perfidy constitute the basis of this debased organization. That is the whole issue.

497

The government should put paleontological evidence on display in schools. There are tens of thousands of paleontological pieces of evidence in Turkey. They are in museums. These should be put on display at schools, in streets, everywhere around. People should see these proofs of creation themselves.

498

We would not allow Turkey to be divided. We will never let an American style of federalism be formed; that would break Turkey to pieces. We will not let those murderers out [of jail] either. They will do their time in prison. That is it.

499

Muslims are protected by God from all sorts of devious plots. They are protected at all times.

500

One who does not comply with the Qur'an cannot be reasonable. He might be intelligent, but not wise or clever.

501

Unbelievers and hypocrites struggle against Muslims. They will cause them [Muslims] pain, they will slander [them], they will play games, they will cause troubles, they will make up stories about them. God says "Do not mind their torments" ; what does “Do not mind" mean? It is a religious obligation. It is a religious obligation not to be affected by those things; if one does mind them, that means he is doing something religiously unlawful. It is a religious obligation not to mind, not to value, not to take seriously the games these impertinent people play.

502

A Muslim should see prayers as very important; prayer is the reason why God values Muslims.

503

Reason has a close relation with the Qur'an. For one to be wise, one needs to comply with the Qur'an. The Qur'an equals reason, rationality; reason, rationality equals the Qur'an.

504

There is no such thing as laying down weapons for the PKK. These people have been waiting in caves up in the mountains for 40 years in order to make communism prevail. That is simply wishful thinking; they will never lay down weapons.

505

Inauspiciousness, scourges and troubles would spread all over with Darwinist/ materialist education. Darwinism/ materialism is a system that defies God – may God forbid. And it holds sway all over the world: That does not befit Turkey. We should never accept Darwinism/ materialism and we should educate our youth knowing the truth.

506

Our idealistic youth and the young followers of the Saadet Party should come together and in compliance with the law and the legal system, form a platform displaying a firm stand against separation. The AK Party youth, the CHP youth should also join them and issue statements that display an amazing determination and resistance against separation.

507

Forging an alliance with the PKK against Muslims is a grave immorality; it is ignominy. It is not acceptable for a Muslim to forge an alliance with such a debased, such a treacherous, such a filthy lot of scum.

508

The PKK should be crushed with laws and the legal system wherever they are seen. Ataturk says, " Gentlemen, it should be known that the greatest enemy of the Turkish world is communism. And it should be crushed wherever it is seen."

509

What the coalition forces should concentrate on should be the PKK before ISIS. If they are targeting ISIS, leaving the PKK out, that shows a serious insincerity. The PKK is the most dangerous group in the region.

510

No matter what, a Muslim is a Muslim. One can be an anarchist or a terrorist, he could be anything, but in the end he is a Muslim. He can repent and correct his ways. Once he understands the errors of his ways, he can correct them. But it is not the same with the PKK. That is such a treacherous structure. Their treachery is certified.

511

May God guide those who try to cooperate with this Godless, Bookless, cruel, filthy, cesspit the PKK to the true path and ruin those who are not guided.

512

I do not like disloyalty at all. Disloyalty disturbs me greatly. I hate ingratitude. I do not like disloyalty. If one attempts to stake out a claim to the success of another, that would be annoying and insincere. If one succeeds in something with his own talents, that is fine, but if he attempts to stake out a claim to the talents of another that would be humiliating.

513

It is not acceptable to fire a bullet onto Muslims; that would bring about direness, it would bring about troubles. It is a grave decadence. The reward of it is an endless life in Hell. You preach to a Muslim, you explain to Muslims what the true path is with verses, with hadiths and with the Qur'an. Are you a murderer? What does air bombardment mean? You put them on trial and put them in jail if they have committed an offense.

514

We cannot, we would not fire a bullet onto Muslim communities, organizations or structures that are on the wrong path like ISIS or Taliban. We would not shed Muslims'blood. It is religiously unlawful, it is indecent, it is a dishonor. It is not something one who fears God would ever do. Turkish soldiers would never do this.

515

It is the gravest treachery to make our soldiers kill Muslims. No Turkish soldier will ever accept that. There is no Turkish politician who could make such a suggestion. The U.S. should not aspire for such a thing from that far, they cannot make the Turkish nation commit such a depravity. They should forget about it.

516

Those who want to turn our soldiers into murderers are the most debased ones. Our soldiers would never fire a bullet against Muslims. It is a grave moral turpitude, a grave impertinency and a grave lack of conscience to kill a Muslim.

517

The PKK would never ever lay down weapons. Anyone with good judgment would see this. The PKK would be ruined the moment they lay down their weapons. Weapons mean power. People respect power. Once they lose their weapons, the PKK would be crushed.

518

The PKK would never lay down their weapons. They will continue to acquire position in the Southeast. The only solution is to root them out there within the framework of the law. Anything other than that would not work. It is a gangrenous tissue and that tissue should be surgically removed. There is no other cure for that.

519

The radicals are pitch black inside. The corruption and sedition they have inside would neither draw them closer to Mahdi (pbuh) or to the true path, but only to darkness.

520

Syria should be a whole but there is no place for Al-Assad in Syria. Syria's integrity is of course very important; we would not want it to become a country that is all in pieces. But Al-Assad should be changed and a rational, loving person should come as his replacement.

521

Snobbery, impertinence, sauciness are beneath Muslims. Rationalism, being beautiful and mild, an honest mind, a sharp wit, a proper mindset, one that is far removed from artificiality befits Muslims.

522

We need to talk about a lucid world with an honest, sincere, clear and lucid mind. When everything is explained with the Qur'an, with the verses, a relief and ease is formed in the hearts of people. Or else, if you use the approach of the people devoted to this world towards them, even though they already know that this world will die eventually, it will be like you are literally blown away. Your being blown away would scare them. They would feel relieved only if they see that you are very well aware of the existence of God.

523

The PKK wants to take over the Southeast, to establish an independent, communist Kurdistan and then to rule the whole region. Later on they would want to annihilate the Turkish nation to satisfy the anger and hatred they have inside. That is what they aim for. Troubles are coming step by step; everyone should pull themselves together.

524

Turkish youth are not being educated regarding politics. Many of them are only concerned about how they can strike it rich - to put it in a colloquial manner - how to have fun, how to find a wealthy girl or a wealthy young man to lean upon and how to have them look after their whole family, how to eat good food and find good jobs. But that is not what the goal of PKK is.

525

There are about 300 PKK camps in northern Iraq. They are teaching Darwinism and materialism in those places night and day. They are teaching the validity of communism. Kandil is like an academy up in the mountains, like a communist academy. They are being educated about politics night and day.

526

It is not enough to say "stop" to the killings of women. Stopping the killings of women can only be possible by stopping the Darwinist/ materialist education. If you educate people as Darwinists and materialists, they inevitably start seeing others as worthless as bugs and then they become able to kill them, hang them and chop them up. They become maniacs, they become insane. The best method is to educate people and to engrave fear of God to people's hearts and stop the Darwinist/ materialist system.

527

The Turkish Nation, the Turkish youth should be educated with political consciousness. They should be educated against Darwinism, against materialism. What needs to be done against communist occupation should be taught. Love for God, the Holy Book, religion, faith, homeland, nation, flag should be taught to our youth and that love should be engraved in their hearts.

528

Kobane has become a fossilized city. It is a razed, a ruined city. It can only be an open museum and nothing else. As the verses indicate it is very significant to understand how God brings disasters upon irreligious people and how He saves Muslims. We have saved our devout Kurdish brothers and sisters, those who fear God and brought them to Turkey. It is the PKK/YPG that has been ruined there.

529

The way the PKK will lay down their weapons will not be in the sense we know. They are simply laying down their weapons on the floor only to take them back as an "alleged" self- defense force, as "so-called" soldiers, police officers or gendarme. That is the whole issue. Or else they are not thinking about a weaponless state in the Southeast. They want to found a state, one that rules under the shadow of fully automatic weapons. They are thinking about a comprehensive study with military air bases, fortified locations and long rang defense systems.

530

All the countries with the presidential system are under the control of the mafia. Coups take place in every country with the presidential system. In the presidential system, there is a system that can easily be managed by the deep secret states of the world.

531

There is a lobby for poverty in the world. They are keeping the whole world in poverty by means of a special system. That is a system that has been working unfalteringly for 100 - 150 years. Only at the time of the Ottoman Empire that system did not work; they could not order the Ottomans around.

532

The immunity of judges should be revoked. The immunity of judges has been a longstanding big problem in Turkey. Just like other civil servants, judges should not have immunity either. They are normal people; they can make mistakes. Insincerity, a lack of conscience should also be conceived of as an offense.

533

We only have one enemy; the YPG, the PKK, the PJAK. Meaning the scum and sordid filth of the PKK under every name.

534

We do not kill Muslims. We would not lay hands on Muslims; if they are ignorant you simply train them, you approach them with love and compassion. They should show me a command in the Qur'an about killing Muslims. No Islamic scholar would ever give a fatwa to that end, no Muslim could ever give a fatwa to that end. We would never let that happen.

535

Turkish soldiers will never be murderers; they can never be partners in murder. Who ever sets Turkish soldiers to murder will find reasonable people standing against them. Turkish soldiers would never be deceived by such a stratagem. They will never be a part of such an ugly murder. Those who suggest us to become murderers are acting sordidly.

536

It is religiously unlawful for Turkey to fire a bullet onto ISIL, Taliban or any other Muslim group. That is not acceptable under any circumstances; that would be homicide. We are responsible for preaching Islam with science, knowledge, wisdom and love. We would never be deceived by such an unsavory stratagem.

537

They should put it in their minds that we will never let Turkey be divided. We will never let anyone divide our country, not under the name of federalism, nor in the name of this or that. We will never let the murderers of our soldiers and our police officers be released. We will never let that happen, not at the risk of our lives. We are ready to be martyred but we would never hand over our homeland to these traitors, to the PKK. They should forget about it.

538

The families of our martyrs should never be left alone. Their homes should be like prayer houses. They should be immaculate, sparking clean places in which God's Name is mentioned every day. Their visitors should clean the house for everyone. They should say, "Mother, let us clean the house for you." They should do the dishes if there is the need to do so, they should cook for them if they don't have food.

539

Federalism, local management, united federal states; all those are movements that aim to divide Turkey.

540

Forged faith is very weak, but verified faith is very strong. Haqq al-yaqîn (the total reality of Certainty) is necessary. Without profound faith people become ill. They commit crimes.

541

A big stratagem is in play against Turkey. They are weighing our sight, our voice, our will power. They are checking if we are timid, if we can give up, if we are impassive, or not. Well, my brother you do not know us well enough, we would raise hell. Pull yourselves together. All hell breaks loose in the whole world; we will never let Turkey be divided.

542

Turkey is on a very important turning point; that is why supporting, watching over and protecting patriotic youth is very crucial. It is very important to keep them and their eagerness fit and in shape.

543

The youth should be more determined. The nationalist, idealist youth is very well in that respect. They are educated, equipped, determined, serious and deterrent element of our country. When idealists roar, they cause shivering all over. That shivering can be perceived.

544

It is a miracle that the faces of sordid people are black as night. A contempt and sordidness can instantly be observed on the faces of such sordid people. And there is a lamb-like immaculateness on the faces of Muslims. They are immaculately clean and pure.

545

Muslims are at ease, they are at ease everywhere because they submit themselves to God and put their trust in God; they will be very much at ease when they are resurrected in the Hereafter. For instance, Muslims watch the Last Day in joy.

546

God is Ghaffur and All-Compassionate, All-Merciful. A Muslim, one who fears God would not go to Hell. One who fears God would behave as religion commands anyway. There would be no other possibility. These people are created as Muslims anyway.

547

If a person is faithful, by the leave of God, he has nothing to be afraid of. If he says, "I exist." If he says, "Who created me?" and if he has the power for fearing God, God would not burn those people of faith. Let me state that much to make it understood. What kind of creatures are the people of Hell? They cannot understand those things. People of Hell are dead inside.

548

Iran's policy is shaped directly in pursuance of the system of the Mahdi. They are nurturing an army of a million soldiers, the army of the Mahdi. They are binding everything to the Mahdi night and day. In Israel, they are praying for the coming of the Moshiach three times a day. While this is the case, if you turn a blind eye to that, it would be your loss. That is because history progresses in this direction.

549

You have no attachment to the Moshiach, meaning the Mahid (pbuh), but the whole Middle East revolves around that. Whether you like it or not, that is the case. The foreign policy of the U.S. is shaped in pursuance of Moshiach, the Mahdi (pbuh). So is the foreign policy of Saudi Arabia and of Iraq.

550

ISIL is a community consisting of Muslims with deficient knowledge, with many mistakes; but still they are Muslims. Mahdi (pbuh) will correct those mistakes and inadequacies.

551

The YPG is the enemy of all Turkey and all Muslims. It is a communist, Marxist, Leninist, Godless, Bookless, perfidious organization. It is murderous, mafia-type organization.

552

Mahdi (pbuh) is the one who will lead the first prayers in the Hagia Sophia. He will do that with whom? With the Prophet Jesus (pbuh). Istanbul is one of those places Jesus (pbuh) will visit. The second one is Jerusalem and Mecca is the third.

553

The MHP has an active youth movement. They have an educated, politically, ideologically well-trained youth movement. But the AK Party does not have such a youth movement. That is what the AK Party should do. They should educate a nationalist, patriotic youth that roars against those who try to do harm for our homeland, our flag, our people and our state. That is crucial.

554

Let us teach an attitude that loves, embraces, protects, watches over and respects our Jewish brothers to our youth and to our people. There is a step by step course towards troubles, towards direness; let us stop this.

555

Traditionalist, orthodox Islam is not livable. It is incomprehensibly difficult. You cannot listen to music, you cannot look at pictures, ladies cannot wear beautiful, clean dresses, they cannot be well kept, they cannot be elegant, they cannot dye their hair, they cannot pluck their eyebrows, they cannot beautify themselves.

556

Satan dragged down Islam in the world by specifically complicating it. Complicating religion is a satanic method. It appeared as the product of that filthy mind of the satan.

557

God loves self-devotion, self sacrifice. That is why God loves martyrdom. This is one of the beauties God loves the most. God calls it "one of the two best things." God calls martyrdom and becoming disabled while striving on the Path of God as the two best things. That is one's losing his arm, his leg on the Path of God. God likes this very much.

558

God wants to be loved by people, by His own Spirit, by the ones created from His Spirit. But God wants to be loved truly. For one to love truly, he should not leave God, even when he is in pain and difficulties.

559

One should always think on the side of God. Muslims always look at things with the eyes of goodness.

560

If you think devilishly, the deeper you think the more you get swamped by it. Thinking deeper is not in that sense: Thinking deeper means thinking sincerely. It means thinking with all one's sincerity, with all one's honesty, with good intentions, by thinking on God's side, thinking with love for God, never thinking anything against God.

561

A house eventually keeps you warm, prevents you from feeling cold. That is your prison; your prison in this world. If you look at things in the light of faith, your house would be like a house of Heaven. But if you look at things in the light of unbelief, your home would be like one of those cells in the Hell; it troubles you, the walls close in on you, it bothers you all around and makes you suffocate.

562

God says, "Do not worry; just submit and put your trust in Me. Leave it with me. You will be very comfortable even while dying. But if you worry, if you do not submit yourself to Me, you will be hurt."

563

God creates a beautiful world when one puts his trust in God. One should be honest and sincere towards God, in submission to God. When one is not honest, God starts causing pain for that person.

564

ISIL would not make a move against Turkey. Their mistakes, their flaws, their faults will be corrected at the time of the Mahdi (pbuh).

565

Whoever attempts to release Abdullah Öcalan and those murderers would regret doing so a hundred thousand times, let me state it openly. These people are the first ones that the police would drag off using the law and the legal system.

566

Our soldiers are fearless. They live for God, for our Book, for our homeland, for our flag, for our people and for our state. There is no other goal in the life of a soldier. If our soldiers sense that the path taken would lead Turkey to division, no one could ever get hold of our soldiers. No one could ever get hold of our gendarmery and no one could ever get hold of our police. Whoever acts treacherously, whoever acts ignominiously, they would drag them out and reveal them.

567

No one could ever get hold of the gendarmery when the division of Turkey is in question. When our gendarmery sees a treacherous act, they would not listen to anything else. They would do whatever is necessary to be done within the legal system and the laws.

568

Being a communist doesn't make one evil; only if they shed blood do they become evil. Irreligious people aren't necessarily evil but they become evil if they persecute others. Otherwise, these are all their own opinions, we respect them all. I mean these people become evil only if they persecute others, if they hurt others.

569

The whole of the Ottoman army were Bektashis. Most of the Ottoman Sultans were Bektashis as well. Humanity, love, beauty and profundity prevail in the spirit of Bektashism and Alevism. They know nothing about egocentricity. They know nothing about peevishness. Radicals, on the other hand, have formidable egocentricity; most of them are in grave depravity.

570

Fundamentally, the real reason for the emergence of the PKK is Darwinism. The PKK ruined Turkey, as you know. They have martyred our brave soldiers, our lions. This is a scourge stemming from Darwinist education.

571

The reason why people in the Southeast support the HDP is because they are afraid of the PKK, and nothing else.

572

Egocentricity is the main characteristic of the unbelievers. God makes them despised and humiliated as a punishment. And that is what is hardest on them, being degraded and humiliated.

573

The pain the Islamic world is suffering right now is because they have become bogged down into the swamp of idolatry. The Islamic world is suffering a great deal because they have fallen into idolatry. Islam would have prevailed in the world long ago, if they were not in idolatry. They would have lived by, preached and disseminated Islam in peace, in comfort, in beauty and abundance.

574

No one would ever let Turkey be divided. No one would ever release Abdullah Öcalan. No Turkish policeman would ever let that happen. Our police officers are all nationalists. They all are very keen on our homeland, our people, our flag; they all risk death for God, for our homeland, for our flag.

575

Bektashism is not known extensively in Turkey. Alevism is not known extensively. These are immaculately perfect perspectives. They are fabulous teachers of love. They are teachers of friendship and brotherhood. One cannot have enough of their discourses, their beautiful conversation. Their gatherings are nice, their addressing is nice. These people know the secret of maturity, humanity, profundity and wisdom.They are blessed, immaculate people.

576

The PKK has no cause. The PKK only has immorality, perfidiousness, corruption and treacherousness: Having a cause is something different.

577

A Muslim is attacked very often. A Muslim is the one who is attacked. A Muslim is the one with a lot of enemies. If one is a real Muslim, if he is a real man of causes, he would have a lot of enemies. How could one be a Muslim if he doesn't have hypocrites pestering him? Muslims have a lot of unbelievers and a lot of hypocrites pestering them.

578

The lack of a system that is based on faith and love creates a dreadful system. And that rules in this world as an inexplicable trouble.

579

Women are delicate beings, and men are responsible for looking after them in the best possible way. But if you approach them thinking that they are gullible, that would be highly humiliating. I mean if you force yourself onto her, if you have an exploiting mentality, that would be appalling.

580

The thing that the people of Heaven take the greatest joy in their faith in God, their love in God and God's manifesting Himself. That is what they take the greatest pleasure from. Otherwise it is not only the gardens, the tables of Heaven. What they enjoy the most in the Heaven is their love for God and God's manifesting Himself. That is how it is in this world as well.

581

People fail to love one another because there is no unity of the ummah in society. Everyone has a different faith. That inconsistency distresses them and because they are distressed by those inconsistencies, they are unable to love each other. Actually if they attained the unity of faith, if they have united under the same constitution, if they agree with each other, they would be getting along very easily.

582

Every father, every mother in society has a different, specific understanding of religion. Youngsters have such a specific understanding of religion as well. They contradict one another. They do not like each other's way. However, had everyone abided by the Qur'an, they would all become an ummah.

583

Many people in this world stare absently. Passion is very difficult. It can only be formed in very wise people.

584

A Muslim should strongly avoid idolatry. He should use all his will- power, all his attention to avoid being dragged into such a swamp. He should know that everything he rates so highly in this world is empty.

585

The thing you want might be bad for you but you would not know. You persistently want it to happen but actually that might be bad for you. There is goodness in it if God does not grant you your wish. Some people freak out when they are not given what they ask for. It may be that it will bring you troubles if you are given what you have asked for, and God is protecting you by not giving it to you.

586

Let us say one cannot pass the university exam and freaks out. Maybe if you passed the exam, you would go there and die. Maybe it would drive you insane, maybe you will lose your mind, maybe you will lose your health. God does you a favor; you should resign yourself to this.

587

If you are losing something there is good in that. You haven't come to this world to live forever. You lose the smallest things and then obsess about it. What if you lose it? You are exaggerating it; actually there is nothing wrong in it if you look at things rationally.

588

What is the advantage of a lack of trust in God? One would only be suffering and humiliating himself in vain. He would be embarrassed before God. He would be hurting himself and doing something abnormal that is not compliant with reason or logic.

589

Idolatry shows itself with a lack of trust in God. A Muslim is obliged to attain such submission, such trust in God at all costs.

590

Muslims always ask for democracy, for tranquility. That is because in a tense environment, in an unsettled environment, faith does not develop completely. People remain weak. Faith only develops in a peaceful environment in which people can think deep and use their intellect.

591

Almighty God describes security and tranquility as a ground upon which faith would prosper. That is why in a brawling environment, in a tense environment, such progress in faith cannot be attained.

592

Had humanity grasped idolatry and submitting and putting one's trust in God, had they believed in it completely, had they been able to have it settled in their hearts, they would never be in a quandry.

593

There are two kinds of idolatry. The first one is confessed idolatry. For instance, they build up an idol and worship it. That is confessed idolatry. And there is also covert idolatry. That is believing that others, someone or something other than God has power. For instance, it is believing that people have independent power. Actually God is the One Who makes everyone speak, He is the One Who makes everyone speak and do things.

594

Destiny does not change. Actually idolatry is the name for resisting destiny; it is believing that power belongs to some beings other than God.

595

Ascribing partners to God means thinking that a power, a force or any other attribute belongs to someone or something other than God. For instance, something happens and that person thinks, "this one did it." Actually that one does not have the ability to do anything. God is the One Who does everything. All power, all force belongs to God.

596

The defect of the current education system is that they are teaching Darwinism unilaterally Darwinism is a system that totally denies God; people are thus being brought up Godless, Bookless and irreligious in their subconscious. They are brought up not fearing God. When one does not fear God, there is nothing else to do. The scientific response to Darwinism should definitely be taught.

597

Some people believe that it is not possible to think about God while having fun. For instance, when one goes to a wedding or a disco, or when one listens to music on the radio, they believe that God should be forgotten to do so. That is very wrong.

598

All the beauties of life are in religion; there is music, there is fun, there is joy, there is love. Religion covers the whole of life and makes all those religiously lawful. There are very few religiously unlawful acts. Religiously lawful acts on the other hand are innumerable.

599

Mourning is the other name of rebellion towards – may God forbid - God. There is good in something if God creates it. A Muslim would not mourn because our Prophet had prohibited mourning. Mourning is ascribing partners to God, it is a tradition of the idolaters.

600

There is no mourning in Islam. That is a tradition reminiscent of the ancient Sumerians, Hittites, from ancient Egypt, from the idolaters and that is what they are trying to implement.

601

Darwinism lies at the root of all terrorist activities, all acts of violence. The whole Islamic world is Darwinist. Darwinist education should be stopped, there is no other solution.

602

By giving a Darwinist education in schools you are simply saying "There is no God" – may God forbid. You are simply saying "He doesn't exist scientifically but if you want, if you feel like it, you can believe." Then the youth, being unaware that it is fake science, say "Well then we advocate whatever is true scientifically," and become irreligious. That is horrible. Scientific response to Darwinism should definitely be given.

603

All malice, all persecution, all murders are perpetrated by those who do not fear God. Communists, Darwinists, materialists, those who do not believe in God, those who would not fear God. They all emerge from among those who do not fear God. For instance, radicals behave viciously because they do not fear God.

604

There is no such thing as anyone who doesn't have a fear of God going and behaving immorally. But all the despicable people have emerged from among those who do not fear God. That is very important. One who fears God, would not behave like that anyway, such a thing is impossible. All the incidents of rape , all malice are perpetrated by those who do not fear God. That should be known.

605

Jews will gather in Israel in the End Times. That is also stated in the Torah. "I will gather you from all around the world," God says in the Torah. That time has come. That means we are in the times of the Moshiach. It is the time of the Mahdi/Moshiach. Indeed Jews are flooding into Israel from all over the world.

606

Satan would want to blow down a successful Muslim. If that Muslim is doing something beneficial, satan would want to render it ineffective. For instance, he is writing a book, satan would want to stop it. He is preaching religion but satan would want him to stop. He is talking about something good and satan would want him to stop.

607

Satan obtains results rapidly in unbelievers. I mean he gets very fast results one after the other. He can escalate anger to the highest levels instantly so much so that one person goes and shoots another. He makes them persecute others instantly or be disloyal in a moment.

608

A Muslim, a devout person might have difficulties in understanding satan but the disbeliever thoroughly knows the satan. A Muslim wouldn't have such cooperation, such a connection with satan. That is because Muslim wins every time, and thus he takes no account of satan. For instance, he behaves patiently whenever there is something to be patient about, he never stoops to egoism on occasions one might behave egotistically.

609

Satan is an interesting creature. I mean no concrete intervention on humans can be seen during the course of one's life. We understand that he employs methods such as dragging people into sentimentality, into pessimism.

610

Elections under these conditions in the Southeast are not acceptable. The PKK holds sway in the lands there and have buried weapons everywhere, they have threatened and intimidated people. People there are not given the right to chose; they are at gunpoint. Their votes would not be valid. The security of the people living there should be provided before all else and elections can only be held after that.

611

Those who attempt to forgive murderers are the most debased, most ignominious, most honorless, most treacherous of the world. I cannot think of having less character on top of that. There will never be forgiveness for those men and for the traitors of the PKK. Those who want them forgiven are even more debased.

612

The PKK would never lay down their weapons and Öcalan would never want them to do so. Weapons are their only assurance anyway. They have attained this power in the Southeast by means of weapons. They became an addressee of the government because of the weapons they have had. Thanks to those weapons, the pictures, the posters of Abdullah Öcalan became lawful to carry. Those all happened with the effect of guns.

613

An instant counter campaign should be launched to collect all the weapons the PKK has and the organization should be rendered ineffective. The PKK should be brought to their knees. These people are preparing for an uprising in April; how can some people still talk about them laying down their weapons? There are weapons all around the Southeast right now.

614

Struggle against the PKK is waged with science. We would have been very pleased as well if that could be done with poems, legends, tales and songs. But those wouldn't be effective against the PKK. Before all else, the Darwinist, Materialist education should be stopped. I mean an-anticommunist education should be given. If only emotional poems, heroic poems were effective, but they are not; they would only make the PKK laugh.

615

Before the appearance of the Mahdi (pbuh) portents about his appearance will appear. Before entering the rose garden, you smell their beautiful fragrance. Then you approach the rose bush and you find that special rose.

616

Radicals have laid such a heavy burden on Muslims; so much so that they have driven Muslims almost mad. They are unable to turn right or left, it is forbidden to laugh, it is forbidden to talk to women. God wants us to laugh; He wants us to be joyous. Why do you hurt them in vain? They are inventing prohibitions on their own. Laugh; laugh as ever you like, wander around as ever you like, put up the pictures you like at your home, put up statues, let young girls put on make up as ever they like, let them be well-groomed; let young men dance and have fun. These are all lawful and permitted according to the Qur'an.

617

Once the made-up superstitions of the bigots and the radicals are discarded, the immaculate, pure and lucid religion of Islam remains behind.

618

The Nationalist Movement Party means homeland, nation, love of state and love of people. It means fastidiousness and being alert against heedlessness and aberration. It means fastidiously protecting and watching over the interests of the homeland and the nation. The interests of the homeland and nation should be very fastidiously protected and watched over. It means being meticulous; consequently, it is not acceptable to exclude such a successful movement from the national assembly.

619

When they start speaking out against the Mahdi, a cloud of inauspiciousness envelops them from where they least expect it. Troubles rain down upon them from their feet, from their head, from their body. They imagine that these are simply slip-ups. Actually these all happen because they used bad language against the system of the Mahdi and that is why God smashes their mouths and that is the whole issue.

620

The radicals are created as the enemy of the system of the Mahdi. As a matter of fact, their animosity is a special system created to elevate the rank of the system of the Mahdi. Radicals are the people of hell created to elevate the rank of the system of the Mahdi. God elevates the rank of the Mahdi (pbuh) with those people of the hell.

621

The lobby of poverty is under the control of the system of the Antichrist. The Antichrist has been using this system specifically to crush people. It crushes villagers and the workers. It is a special system: It causes pain, it commits murders, it sheds blood. The system of the Antichrist, the system of the satan feeds on that pain. But the system of the Mahdi will stop the bloodshed, stop the pain and solves poverty.

622

There is a specifically attained great lobby of poverty. Mahdi (pbuh) will clear away this poverty lobby, this system that organizes poverty. At that time, the world will become wealthy on its own automatically. But that will be the last wealth of the world.

623

There is a worldwide special organization for poverty. This is attained with the support of the notables of great states, famous capitalists and many central banks.

624

Since the system that organizes poverty in the world will be ended at the time of the Mahdi, there will be no more organized poverty in the world. That is because poverty is obtained in an organized manner right now.

625

The appearance of the Mahdi (pbuh) and Jesus Messiah (pbuh), the establishment of the Islamic Union and a short period in which Islamic values would prevail is what God wills for. We will, insha'Allah, see these.

626

God is being denied openly. That would bring about grave inauspiciousness. This is the reason behind the disasters upon this world. The world is struggling under this scourge and everywhere has turned into a bloodbath. There is economic collapse everywhere; there are disasters everywhere. The fact that Darwinism is a fallacy and that it is false should be explained with scientific evidence. There is no other way.

627

Darwinism, Materialism lies at the root of inauspiciousness and disasters. This should be explained thoroughly. The response to Darwinism and materialism should be given comprehensively. Otherwise that would offend God.

628

Scientifically and philosophically crushing Darwinism and materialism would cause the destruction of the PKK. Crushing Darwinism is the most effective blow. Once you crush Darwinist, Materialist thought you would be severing the lifeline of the PKK. That would drain the minds of the PKK. Once you drain their minds, they cannot survive.

629

We see that some civil servants are timid and do not put their trust in God in standing against the PKK. That is unbecoming. Our Prophet (saas) appeared with a handful of people, with 40 people. A Muslim should be brave and fearless.

630

God's wish would be realized when Darwinism is eradicated from the face of the world. The system of the Mahdi would then prevail. After that, there will be another deterioration and people will return to this mentality.

631

Right now about seven billion people worldwide are denying God totally in chorus. The textbooks of all countries in the world state that man is created as a result of random coincidences from muddy water. All the ministries of education all around the world say that "there is no God" in their textbooks. May God forbid, there is a defiance against God throughout the whole world. Normally the world already deserved the Last Day to come about, normally the Last Day should have come already.

632

By means of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), this scourge of Darwinism that denies God will be annihilated; Islam will prevail and the Last Day will come after a while.

633

In the hadiths, it is related that the Last Day will be put on hold when the Mahdi comes. It is on hold right now; the Last Day is right at our door but God stopped it because of the Mahdi (pbuh).

634

The reason why God sent Mahdi is for him to eradicate Darwinism. This is the main reason. He is sent to do annihilate this ideology that denies God.

635

Such a wide scale denial, in which billions of people deny the existence of God and claim that man is created by coincidences, has never been seen in the history of the world before. There has been very small faithless communities, very small unbeliever groups and the rest of the masses have always believed in God. This is the first time something like that is happening. Such an affliction has never been seen before. We will all see that Mahdi (pbuh) will put away this affliction with the manifestation of God's Name "Al-Hadi" (The Guide).

636

People far removed from God can never be happy. People who do not resign themselves to God can never find abundance and relief.

637

Those grasping the secret of resigning themselves to their fate, those who find that truth and hold onto it are actually holding onto the greatest blessing, greatest relief in the world.

638

Traitors should think carefully. They should be sure that they will get their just desserts without fail. For instance, the PKK will definitely find their just desserts. That is because it is a movement of the antichrist. The movement of the antichrist is certainly transitory. It is a system that is destined to collapse and will certainly collapse.

639

Traps are created in two pieces; one is the trap itself and the other is the trap as it is put out of order. These are created as a block, as a whole. Traps are never created alone. For instance, there is Pharaoh and there is Moses (pbuh). There is Nimrod and there is Abraham (pbuh). There is antichrist and there is Mahdi(pbuh). Antichrist is a trap and Mahdi is the one that puts it out of order. Therefore there is no need to be on thorns.

640

Knowing the artistry of God, recognizing the Greatness of God, brings about plentitude from God; that takes away troubles, brings about relief. When God is forgotten somehow, pain and sufferings never let people in peace.

641

One grovels when he doesn't know about destiny; he suffers. But if you are aware of destiny, God gives plentitude and bestows blessings upon you. Troubles you endure become your religious services. That is because submitting one's self to God in every moment of life is like performing prayers in every moment of life.

642

When one says trouble, people assume that it is always bad. Actually troubles come to people from the Presence of God; so does wealth, beauty, health. Sometimes troubles and illnesses come to us, sometimes beauty. Both of those are from God. None of them come randomly.

643

God is Great in the spiritual sense. God does not need greatness in volume. That is because He is out of time and space. Time and space exists for us, however.

644

Why would a soldier become a soldier? He becomes a soldier because he is ready to die for the sake of God, for the sake of his homeland and for his flag. This is the specialty of that profession. If police officers sense that their homeland is being sold out, they would make life unbearable for those who do that. They would then look for a hole to hide in and say ,"I wish I didn't do this!" The police officers, the soldiers would ruin them with the law and the legal system. The police and the soldiers would make them regret what they have done.

645

The Turkish police would be the first ones to respond if they attempt to divide Turkey. Do you know what Turkish police officers come for, when they join the police force? They come there to die for this homeland, for this nation, for this flag. Policing is the name of the profession that is determined to die for the sake of God.

646

The sole purpose of a presidential system is to lead Turkey towards federalism. The presidential system equals federation. I mean it is a system that would divide Turkey. This is the mentality of the American deep secret state. This is the mentality of Abdullah Öcalan.

647

Some people say, "Why is Syria being razed? Why is Iraq being razed? Why is Libya being razed? Why is Egypt being razed?" They fell into idolatry and idolatry brought troubles towards them. A Muslim should avoid ascribing partners to God.

648

God says that Muslims will be successful so long as they do not ascribe partners to God. Some people fail to understand this secret. I mean if you abide by the Qur'an, you would not fall into idolatry. If you do not abide by the Qur'an and act according to made-up, false hadiths, you would be an idolater.

649

Blessings will increase if one is grateful. What does being grateful mean? It means abiding by the Qur'an, submitting to God and being pleased with what God gives. The man is not pleased with God and is constantly complaining. He believes – may God forbid - that God has treated him unjustly. How could there be blessings, if this is the case? Of course, such a person is not given blessings.

650

God says " If you are grateful, I will certainly give you increase." They do not believe in this. They say "No, that is not what is going to happen." And as long as you keep saying it won't happen, you will continue to grovel.

651

If a person is patient, if he constantly thanks God, God would open the doors to him where he least expects. But because they constantly complain, blessings do not come upon them.

652

God rewards a Muslim quietly. One might say, "I am in misery." God would reward you, if you are patient. If you are not patient, if you constantly complain, how can you expect anything good? Complaining would mean rebellion against God - may God forbid.

653

Sometimes God gives a rank to some people, gives them power, gives them means. You would not be a person of guidance if you say, "Why did God give him such a rank? Why did He give that person that easiness?" A person who -May God forbid - questions God would not be a person of guidance. One should say, "There is a goodness, a benevolence behind this. God knows but I don't."

654

A Muslim should enhance his love infinitely, his compassion, his beneficence infinitely. He should be trustworthy. He should not spy on Muslims. He should not play games and stab them in the back; he should not persecute them.

655

A Muslim should never say, "I have performed my prayers, so I will be able to go to Heaven and that would be enough for me." A Muslim should want his rank to be high in Heaven. There are different ranks, Muslims are in a competition with each other. They should want to reach higher and higher. And there is no end to it; how nice this is.

656

Does the Prophet Abraham (pbuh) ever do anything cruel? No, he doesn't. He is a compassionate, merciful, gentle person. I mean he never engages in anything against Muslims. He always acted in favor of Muslims and there was goodness in every one of his acts. Such people are the people of guidance.

657

The Qur'an defines these acts as cruelty; all kinds of attitudes that would disturb Muslims, that would sadden them, that would tire them or that would intimidate them or spy on Muslims. Cruelty means devising plots against Muslims, setting traps against Muslims. Performing prayers would not save such a person; he should avoid all kinds of cruelty.

658

A Muslim cannot act abnormally. According to the Qur'an, Muslims "have faith and do not mix up their faith with any wrongdoing." I mean, they do not attempt to do any wrongdoing and they never act on cruelty.

659

The whole world is in misery right now because of their stinginess. There are a handful of wealthy people and they constitute, let us say, 1% of the world's population and the other 99% is in poverty. As the manifestation of the Qur'anic verses, the whole world is in misery. If they give up that tight-fisted attitude, the whole world would become rich.

660

Properties are created inside one's brain. A Muslim prays for God to distribute that image inside his brain and that is it. But some are unable to have the heart to give up that image, they do not have the heart to distribute it.

661

Radicals see Islam as unsavory in their own minds. Actually joy and happiness is Islam; Islam is a beauty. But these people consider joy and happiness as unsavory. That makes it a sort of the spirit of unbelievers.

662

The People of Hell are specifically created. I mean they are special beings that are bereft of guidance. They are created with the character of disbelievers.

663

Guidance is a special knowledge, a special spirit, that opens one's mind, that open's one's perception and makes one's brain work. If one is unable to find that guidance, that means he is created as "closed" to Islam. Such people are unable to understand Islam; that portion of their brains does not work.

664

Russia should open the doors to the students of Treatise of Light. Anything to the contrary would bring about inauspiciousness. A country closing doors to the students of the Treatise of Light cannot remain standing. Such a country would be devastated with that inauspiciousness.

665

Dividing Turkey means immorality. Such an immoral one would not be able to live in Turkey. They would all be ruined within the pain of the Last Day. No one should ever attempt to be dragged into such immorality. We will never let something like that happen.

666

Being divided would leave Turkey decapitated. That means dying, may God forbid.

667

If the PKK has a plot, God has a plot as well. The plot of God is greater. The plot of God against the unbelievers, the plot God devised against them is greater.

668

Fighting ISIS, fighting Muslims is not superiority. You educate them if they are ignorant, you explain to them the truth if they are on the wrong path. Nothing can be solved with blood. Blood cannot be cleaned with blood.

669

The US does not let Turkey go into Kandil. That is immorality. I mean what happened to your being against terrorists? What happened to your being against ISIS? What happened to your being against Al-Qaeda? If they are killing one man, these people, the PKK, are killing thousands. They have martyred ten thousands of our soldiers.

670

This homeland does not lack an owner. They are putting on a plot that would fence in the government; that would mean the collapse of the government. I mean, they are trying to drag the government into a federation. That would ruin the government, that would ruin Turkey; that would ruin the Middle East, as well as the world.

671

Beauty and aesthetics are indispensable characteristics of Muslims.

672

Limited things are hard on people. Why does God promise an endless life in Heaven? Being limited gives pain to people, that is why. Limitless, endless things are beautiful. There is a beginning for a Muslim but there is no end. Almighty God has no beginning and no ending.

673

Islam is where love and affection can be experienced in the most beautiful fashion. Muslims are in love with Muslims; they never put a limit to their love because they love with the love of God. Would one be surprised at the love of God? One should not be surprised at the love for other people either. That would always increase. A Muslim could never say, "I love God this much," as that love is endless.

674

Women are ruined in the traditionalist orthodox understanding of Islam. They can neither have the freedom to dress up, nor to laugh, or to sit properly or to walk about as they like. Even their eating as they wish is an offense. They [the radicals] say, "If you let them eat a lot, they would go rampant and cause you troubles. If you let them wear beautiful clothes they would attempt to go out to the streets to show off."

675

They misrepresent Islam as a religion of the grave, as a religion of violence. They make it seem as if a Muslim is the one who hangs others, who chops them up, who beats them and insults them and as if there is nothing else to it.

676

Chopping people up, cutting their heads off and holding those heads in their hands, leaving everywhere in blood, in cries and groans, hunger, unaesthetic, ugly images, depravation; this is the dreadfulness in which a great many portion of the believers of the orthodox understanding of Islam live in.

677

In the traditionalist, orthodox understanding of Islam, the world has turned into a grave; everywhere is a place of torture. The "a cardigan and a bite of food" mentality is the other name of misery. Pain and suffering is considered as a foundation. It is forbidden to laugh, it is forbidden to be joyous; music, paintings, television, everything beautiful is forbidden. All those things that are beautiful, all the beauties that one can think of are forbidden. Only hatred, rage and anger are allowed.

678

What we are talking about is an understanding of Islam that would save the world. There is love, there is brotherhood; there is goodness, beauty, arts and aesthetics in Islam. Women are held in high esteem, women are free, children are free and liberated, young people are free and liberated; there is joy and happiness everywhere in Islam.

679

It is not possible to hold just elections in the Southeast because there is no security in the Southeast. If the HDP wins, it would be illegal. How could a party backed by the PKK be a legal party? How could such an election be held? The elections should be postponed. Before all else the support of the PKK, the PKK itself, should be annihilated.

680

Almighty God occasionally took our Prophet (saas) out of time when he was in a state of ecstasy and he saw all happenings; he then foretold everything and they have all been realized, one by one.

681

If there is an evil person, you would not persecute such an evil person either. You would simply explain to him the truth. If one persecutes another, he would be ruined as well. That menace would multiply a thousand-fold.

682

All countries are full of a hate against Israel. The Torah foretells that hatred against Jews would be widespread in the End Times. If they approach everything with the Torah, if they increase their love for the Moshiach, God will save them from this scourge. Or else that scourge would increase even further.

683

God would not give success to a Darwinist, materialist system. God would only bestow inauspiciousness upon them. Inauspiciousness would engulf them all around.

684

If you bring up a Darwinist materialist youth, they would not have fear of God. You keep saying "There is no God" - may God forbid - and they are thus brought up like that. Abdullah Ocalan also says, "I used to have faith then I started educating myself; I've read biology books and then lost my religion, lost my faith."

685

Turkey should remain as a whole. If Barzani were to join Turkey as a federation, that is acceptable of course: If they want to join Turkey as a great Kurdish region, we would be proud of it, we would like it a lot. For instance, that is the same with Greece as well. They should ally with Turkey and adhere to Turkey. But our homeland is already a small one, Attempting to divide such a small country is highly disturbing for us.

686

The MHP should roar, the party should be even stronger. For instance, it should be stronger with the participations and with votes, their voices should be heard more strongly in the national assembly. The MHP should be the second strongest party after the AKP.

687

The MHP is the active force of Turkey. I mean our people have a youth to loll against and that is the idealist youth. The voice of the idealist youth should be heard soundly within the lines of the MHP. Both the idealist youth and the MHP as a party should speak out loudly.

688

If you are timid enough to hand over the Southeast, any country could break you into pieces. Everyone can attack you. If Turkey gives such a timid appearance, if she appears to lack the power to protect the Southeast, any country could dare to attack. Let us scrape off the PKK from our Southeast regions. All necessary precautions should be taken. If we need to give martyrs, let us give martyrs. Let us save that region from the scourge of the PKK, no matter what the cost is.

689

Life is very difficult, that is how God created. If you put radicalism on top of this like a hump on the back, saying that one should not laugh, one should not go out to streets, one should not talk on the phone, it would ruin society; there would not be one happy person left. One would lose his sanity, one's mind would stop working and one would become unable to do anything, unable to produce anything and would ruin all his artistic capability. I mean it is not possible to attain anything with the traditionalist orthodox understanding of Islam. People would be ruined.

690

The American deep state wants the presidential system; Abdullah Öcalan wants this system. The presidential system has brought disasters to all countries that adopted it. It has caused the collapse of all adopting countries and those countries have all been handed over to the mafia like organizations or coups. That is not an auspicious system.

691

Darwinism is directly an antichrist movement. A system that denies God is a system of the antichrist. Many people are not even aware of it.

692

Darwinism should scientifically be wiped away from Turkey. That is a grave disaster. That would offend God. Such an unseemly insolence has never been adopted against God in the history of the world. There has never been such a fierce movement of the antichrist.

693

Bediuzzaman advanced religion, the truth of religion in Turkey and Turkey cleaned itself of radicalism. The beauty of today's Turkey belongs to these two individuals; first to Ataturk and second to Bediuzzaman. As a result of hidden knowledge, these two appear to be opposing each other. Not everyone can understand this. Their appearing as opposed to one another is the way of the hidden knowledge.

694

Radicals regard women as evil, they see them as the source of sins that ruin men, destroy families and harm humanity. I mean, misogyny is very widespread and intense among radicals.

695

If you regard arts as unsavory, if you despise music, painting, sculpture and architecture, if you attempt to run away from a house with paintings, if you say "dogs are evil, you should chase off them when you see them," such a country would never advance. The reason why Europe advanced is because they are open to arts and science.

696

It is one thing to govern Turkey with the mind of one person and it is completely something else to govern the country with hundreds of minds. Countries should be governed with hundreds of people. The talents and abilities of hundreds of people should be reflected in the state. If everything is carried out with the talent of one person, that would not work.

697

Among the democratic countries, there are not many countries that are governed through presidential systems. There are only three countries and they all are miserable. There is not even one authoritarian country that is ruled with a parliamentary regime. Authoritarian countries have all been ruled through presidential systems.

698

All politicians, all professors state that the parliamentary system is more suitable for settlement and advancement of democracy and that is observed in practice as well.

699

It is not true that democracy progresses in the presidential system. On the contrary, coups happen mostly in presidential systems.

700

Presidential systems have never come to a country through elections, through the will of the public. It has always come about with wars, with revolutions. Presidential systems have always followed incidents, revolutions. I mean it always happened in the form of impositions.

701

All the countries with presidential systems have collapsed, they have all been ruined. That system did not bring abundance and peace to any of those countries. Afflictions have engulfed them all from every aspect. Especially the Asian countries have been handed over to mafia type organizations. The leaders of the Middle Eastern countries have all been ruined and their states have all collapsed. America has collapsed economically. France is about to be divided into three. America is about to be divided as well.

702

There is no time in outer space. Time is a perception and a form of belief that is formed in the brain by making a comparison between one moment and the other. It is a product of the brain; it is a belief. They imagine that there is time outside. There is but one moment, and in that moment everything has happened within that moment. Everything is over and done with in that moment. This is how God creates.

703

God is the One Who directly creates music. Is it music what comes to your ears? No, it is not: It is merely sound waves. The waves come to one's ears but it is not the ear that hears; ears are deaf. They simply transmit the sound waves; they transmit the waves as electricity and the brain listens to those sound waves as music. There is no music; see that there is no music until it reaches the brain. There is no music in the place music is played. It is really weird that there is no music outside; there is no music outside the brain.

704

There is no country in the world in which presidential systems succeeded. They all have ended in dictatorships. It has ruined the US as well and it is about to break up France into three pieces.

705

Under the presidential system, the country gets out of the control of the president. I mean the president remains as a perfunctory leader. Almost everything remains under the control of local administrations and local administrations become even more stronger in time and the country becomes a gathering of small states. Later on, those small states declare their independence one by one. They conduct a referendum and then declare independence. If something like this happens to Turkey, the Turkish nation would not be able to get it back together at least for 200 years and the Last Day would come before that anyway.

706

The goal of America is clearly out in the open. They want there to be a federation, to have separate states, and to have Turkey broken into pieces. That is it. They actually want the whole of Turkey, but because America knows that a military intervention would be very bloody, they have invented such a cunning method. They have inflicted Ocalan on Turkey because of that.

707

A presidential system is necessary for federation. The goal of founding federations is because that is the way the presidential system works. They are trying to impose this system because federation is what they want, that is the whole issue.

708

A presidential system means federalism. Our people are strictly against it because they are aware of this fact. There is no need to insist on this.

709

Abdullah Öcalan says that there should be a presidential system. America says that there should be a presidential system. Both of them are against Turkey, they both want Turkey to be in trouble. Would Abdullah Öcalan want a presidential system for the good of Turkey? He wants it to break Turkey up.

710

Leftist ideologies represent a stunted system. I mean it is a system that is unable to move, one that stalls, atrophies and suffocates the current system. Such a system would not come to power neither in Europe nor in the world. Actually, the leftist ideology in the world has died.

711

For one to enjoy profundity, he needs to have a deep love for God. How could one who is unable to love God deeply love other manifestations?

712

A lover should be willing to risk death for God and should want to sacrifice himself for God: He should be willing to sacrifice himself for God. He should put his life on the line. Some people are very fond of their lives; they want to avoid even the slightest conflicts of interest, they do not want any harm to come to them and say, "I come first." Your loved one should come the first. I mean some people do not want to give anything of theirs, they do not want to present anything of theirs to their loved ones. They are always after saving themselves.

713

In order to be in love, one needs to have a morality like that of the Prophets. One needs to be committed to God and to live for God. One needs to retire from this world. Would an egoistical, selfish person be in love? Such a person would be wearing that cloak anyway. If one is egoistical and selfish, that means it is over for him.

714

Despite being Muslims, ISIS is on the wrong path. That is because they are using violence; violence has no place in Islam.

715

The schools of the Special Operations teams should be re-opened. Let us train at least 40 to 50,000 thousand Special Operations officers. That would be a very good assurance for the state.

716

Federalism means handing over the Southeast of Turkey willingly and wittingly.

717

It is not possible to have a presidential system without the federal system. All the countries with a presidential system have been separated anyway. Both the USA and France wants separation right now.

718

The system of the Mahdi is not a force that prevails in the world only with preaching religion. Right now all the doors to the system of the Mahdi are opening. Is it the system of the Mahdi who does that? Is it the Mahdi (pbuh) who does that? No: God is the One Who creates everything. All the obstacles in front of the system of the Mahdi are being removed one by one right now. The entire system is prepared for the Mahdi. God makes all these changes.

719

While Darwinism and materialism is still being taught, Islamic Unity cannot be established in Turkey. Darwinism and materialism should be intellectually annihilated before all else. Darwinism and materialism offend God; in the national educational system, you keep saying, "There is no God". That is a fatal explanation that would summon the wrath of God.

720

Education is needed for Islamic Unity. Islamic Unity cannot be attained through politics. They tried to do that in Egypt, and Egypt is gone. This is what happens when they attempt to do that with politics. They tried to establish Islamic Unity through politics in Libya and Libya is gone, they tried the same in Syria and Syria is gone. Islamic Unity cannot be attained through politics: Islamic Unity can only be attained through the facts of Qur'an, through the facts leading to faith. Islamic Unity can only be possible with science and knowledge.

721

The PKK, those scum, are using the intimidating power of weapons in the Southeast; the Turkish army should have even more perfect ones.

722

I kindly ask from our Minister of Defense so that they would distribute at least 1,500-2,000 meter range weapons to our soldiers. The quality of the gunpowder and the weapons they used should be perfect. May God not create an event to make them use those weapons, may God forbid, and the face of those weapons are cold yet they are a great deterrent.

723

The lover would do all kinds of sacrifices for their beloved one. If need be, he would sacrifice his own life for God, and protect and watch over the beloved one. He would take great care to prevent her honor, her pride, her chastity, and to prevent any harm to her mind or her body. He would pay attention to her food, her drink, her sleep and everything about her. This is the sign of a lover. He would protect her at all costs.

724

Women are the manifestations of God. Love for women stems from love of God. It stems from the love felt for the manifestations of God. God manifests Himself with His Name "An-Nur", "Al-Jamal". All beauties belong to God.

725

Love based on the love of God would make one madly in love with the love of God. Such a person would devote his heart to God. He would become a helpless lover. His love for God becomes even more intense as he sees the manifestations of God.

726

Living love, if that love is based on love of God, that love is acceptable. If it is not based on love of God, it means nothing. That has nothing to do with love, affection or endearment. Anyone who claims otherwise would be lying. It is love only if it is based on the love of God.

727

We will, insha'Allah, wipe away the tears of our Kurdish brothers. Joy and happiness will replace those tears. We will not let them be oppressed, either by the antichrist of the Ergenekon nor the PKK. We won't give way to either of them.

728

The state should give licensed automatic weapons to the village headmen. That is a very difficult job to do. The PKK scum come to their doors with automatic weapons with a two thousand meter range. How could they come if the village headmen and the village guards had such guns? They would calculate their strength and chicken out. That is why, having weapons against the PKK is very important in terms of deterrence.

729

The reason why the scourge that inflicted the whole world did not hit Turkey is because there is a light, a radiance in Turkey. Or else Turkey would have been hit as well and that would have put Turkey to rout, may God forbid.

730

God brings about abundance in love. We should not feel any kind of hatred or rage towards any country or any nation. Let us put away all such feelings. That would bring about inauspiciousness.

731

A disaster has passed by Turkey. Since there is a beauty, since there is a light in Turkey , that disaster did not hit Turkey. Had there not been such a light, such a beauty in Turkey, Turkey would have been hit by that scourge, just like in the story of the Prophet Abraham (pbuh).

732

There are many little, sweet children with their ringlets in Israel, there are many inoffensive devout Christians and Jews. Why should we assume an attitude against those people? An 80% anti-Israel attitude is a very high rate. That is very scary. That would bring about inauspiciousness.

733

If you feel rage to an inoffensive nation, God would bring you to grief. Let us not feel any rage or anger towards any nation; let us not hate anyone. Let us love everyone. Let us only assume an attitude against tyrants.

734

It is not heroism to stand up to Israel. One needs to stand up against those who are cruel in Israel, whoever they are, if there are any.

735

With a leftist government coming to power, Greece will wallow into a far worse affliction that it is in right now and will fall into a even deeper gap. That is another plot; look, you will see how their economy will go downhill, how wretched they will be and how an indescribable scourge will engulf Greece. This government will soon be overthrown. You will see this in the coming days: I am laying emphasis on this.

736

Our Kurdish brothers are heading towards victory right now. Our Kurdish brothers are about to clean out the filth, the sewer that is the PKK, together with the Turkish army, together with their own brothers. God will plague the PKK and they will be ruined.

737

The closed schools of the Special Operations team should be reopened. The best weapons should be given to those in the Special Operations team. The quality of gunpowder should be increased; we ask that from our state. The number of our snipers should be increased. These are important in terms of being a strong deterrent force against the PKK.

738

The time of overthrowing governments with tricks and deception is over. They should forget about it. Those who came to power with elections will leave power with elections.

739

Without the system of the Mahdi, this traditionalist Orthodox understanding of Islam, this traditionalist Orthodox Shia understanding would ruin the world, let me tell you that much. They will suffer a great deal, but they will understand eventually. These troubles will only come to an end with the Mahdi (pbuh), not any other way.

740

If you believe and say that those who do not perform prayers and who do not give alms should be killed, the European Union would not accept you. But if you approach them with the spirit of the system of the Mahdi, with the morality of the Qur’an, Europe would be happy to be beside you.

741

We will enter the European Union in the time of the Mahdi. That radicalism will then be erased and people would not consider music as unlawful and will be respectful towards women wearing revealing clothes. Statues, paintings, music; these are all beauties. If you create a mass of people who are against all these, Europe would not want to take you in.

742

Not everything about a person would be good. Good people have flaws as well. 90 % of that person is good; talk about those good characteristics, then you can mention those 10 % mistakes. But if you ignore that 90%, that would be cruelty.

743

Hazrat Mahdi’s (pbuh) interpretation of the Qur’an is different, and the interpretation of the antichrist is different. Some of the Evangelicals interpret according to the antichrist; if you interpret with the spirit of the Mahdi, the result will be divine. That is why Mahdi (pbuh) is awaited in the End Times. Right now, there is the interpretations of the antichrist. Only violence will come about from the interpretations of the antichrist.

744

The salvation of Africa is in the End Times. The whole history of Africa has passed with sufferings. Their ordeals will come to an end only with the system of the Mahdi but those ordeals will, insha’Allah, return to them as a beauty. Those pains, those ordeals will have a perfect return for those who are faithful; the gardens of Paradise, the tables of Paradise and above all else the good pleasure of God.

745

Music heals the soul. We are having conversations here and we are also presenting useful information; these heal the mind. But music heals the soul. Beautiful people heal the soul as well. So our souls are healed here in our conversations.

746

Poverty is a situation specifically created in this world. But the Archangel Michael is behind this; I mean there is a secret in this.

747

Before the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), an amazing wave of disasters will engulf the whole of Europe. God will remind people of Himself and an age of peace will then start.

748

Movements against the system of the Mahdi are unprecedentedly high in number, as has never been seen in the history of Islam. If the number of the movements against the system of the Mahdi was perhaps one back in the history of Islam, it is about a million now. I mean it has increased a million times.

749

Islam prevails everywhere. One can mention the Name of God while having fun or in a wedding. There is no such thing as saying one cannot talk about God in a place of entertainment. This is the result of a mindset that tries to spread irreligiousness presenting it as if it is something in demand. That is because people are very fond of music and entertainment. These people say “Do not talk about God when there is music and entertainment. Simply keep quiet.” Irreligiousness is the result of such a mentality.

750

Lawsuits should be brought in international courts against European countries that provide money or weapons to the PKK. That is because those states are supporting a terrorist organization, and thus they are acting as terrorists themselves.

751

Diseases progress when the resistance of the body drops. People should be jolly, they should be full of love. Hatred fuels illnesses, it causes cancer to progress. They should not keep hatred or rage in their hearts. Love nourishes the body. They should look at everything as a manifestation of God and approach all things with love.

752

There is no such thing to be called a presidential system and there will not be. This is a system being suggested in order to divide Turkey. We will never accept it. They should forget about this. A parliamentary system is the most beautiful system.

753

Diyarbakır is a radiant city. These PKK scum polluted that radiant city. We will clean those scum away.

754

There is a mafia structure in the Southeast; this mafia should be wiped out. They should postpone the elections for six months. This filth should be cleansed and the elections should be held only after that.

755

Let us first wipe away the filth of the PKK and then hold the elections. Under this heavy threat, in this vileness, holding elections is not reasonable. The Southeast would then be handed over to the PKK, may God forbid.

756

This world would never be without pain or suffering. Pain is in the origin of love. Life has no meaning without love anyway. There has to be pain, people have to go through ordeals.

757

Some people say, “What if God did not create pain?” Well then you would be obtuse. Let us say that you have gone by the river in Heaven; you would simply look at it with vain eyes. But if you have suffered through ordeals, you would kiss each and every single one of the pebble stones in Heaven numerous times. Almighty God gives people a lengthy life and makes them experience these ordeals because it is crucial. After that people people return to normal.

758

Some people ask, “Why does God create pain?” There is beauty in the essence of pain that is why. Paradise cannot be attained without pain. There is no love without pain. A person would then be obtuse. One needs to go through all these ordeals and pains to gain that profundity.

759

The US is in trouble, they are fed up with the presidential system and they want to rid themselves off the presidential system. The Parliamentary system is the wisest of all. The countries that have presidential systems in the Southeast or Asia have all turned into dictatorships and either ruined their people, or bloodily collapsed and ruined their leadership.

760

A presidential system is highly dangerous for Turkey. This would be the source of many troubles. There is a plot behind it, a plot to break up Turkey.

761

We need to be as comfortable as we are in our homes in Diyarbakır, in Mardin, in Siirt: Only then we can talk about Great Turkey.

762

God wished to make Islam prevail in destiny. This is not possible with artificial systems and fake Mahdis. I mean, Islam would not prevail by planning by making mere arrangements.

763

Praying is important. Saying a prayer is the most important strength of a Muslim; that is because God is the One Who controls all incidents at every moment.

764

Muslims should constantly pray to God for the ruin of those who strive to disintegrate Turkey. They should pray to God to ruin those who try to legalize the PKK and the murders they committed.

765

May God damn all those who open the door for the disintegration of Turkey. May God ruin all those who strive to disintegrate Turkey. May God ruin all those in this sinister plot. May God put fear in them, may He make them terrified. Praying is what Muslims should do in the face of this danger.

766

God sent ISIS as a scourge upon the PKK. It is a celestial disaster sent upon them; it is a celestial scourge. God sent upon them a scourge like the one that came upon the tribes of Ad and Thamud.

767

The PKK would disappear if they do not carry out any acts of violence. Consequently, if the PKK disappears, so would the HDP. In order for the HDP and the PKK not to disappear there have to be incessant acts of violence: There is no other way. This is something taught in Marxist education camps day and night as a philosophical and psychological fact. They are taught to constantly carry out acts of violence, even if it is small.

768

Carrying out constant protests, carrying out incessant acts of violence is one of the most important tactics of the Marxist ideology. If there were no acts of violence, the PKK would have been forgotten long ago. Nobody would ever give them the time of the day. But if they keep carrying out acts of violence, that would keep the PKK in a constant ascent - in their own minds - and they would thus gain strength. They are doing these things because they need it.

769

Getting hold of the best weapons technology in the world is a religious obligation for all Muslims. The command of the Qur’an, the command of God in the Qur’an is explicit. Of course we would not want a drop of blood to be shed. But we should make use of the deterrent characteristic of weapons.

770

Whoever attempts to turn this homeland into a hell on earth for us should be well aware that the Last Day will come upon him. If they do not leave our homeland to us, we would not leave this world to them. The Last Day would then break loose. The whole world would then turn into a flat desert. They should bear this in mind.

771

In order to have a deterrent force, the quality of the weapons used should be increased considerably. The special operations team, the Maroon Berets, soldiers should be given state of art automatic weapons. That would make the PKK shiver in fear.

772

There has to be art everywhere, the artists should be protected. By founding a Ministry of Quality and Arts, all the beauties of art should be presented to our people.

773

It is crucial to commission our village guard brothers within the scope of police officers’ posts and it is crucial to increase the number of the village guards. The Southeast problem would thus be fundamentally solved. The solution lies in increasing love first; secondly, compassion and thirdly, the number of the village guards. There is nothing else other than that.

774

Wealth that comes with faith and with love of God is very nice. Only then one becomes generous, only then one becomes friendly and spends his wealth on children, on people. One would then earn plenty but also spend plenty. Right now there is neither earning plenty nor spending plenty. There is poverty everywhere.

775

Intelligence looks very good on women. I mean that intelligent expression in their eyes. For instance, a woman who gazes with birdlike, empty eyes loses all her glory, all her splendor. If one doesn't have such a genuine problem with her mind, it is such witlessness for a woman to accept such an appearance.

776

Jerusalem is a blessed, holy city. A relief comes upon those who visit Jerusalem, they get a grip on themselves. That is a characteristic of Jerusalem. God gave such a blessing, such a relief, such an exhilaration to that city: That is the same with Mecca. Those who go there do not want to come back.

777

There will be other conflicts, other acts of violence. There will be no end to these acts. Without love stemming from the love of God, this scourge will engulf everywhere, this fire will engulf everywhere. But the day that they will start listening will come; about 2019 they will fall on their knees. They will come to understand that the Truth, realness and love is the right way.

778

Compassion, mercy, reason and love is what the Qur’an stands for. Terror prevails everywhere love does not.

779

There are a lot of atheists, there are a lot of irreligious people, there are all those communities against religion, and universities are loudly teaching Darwinism and materialism, but they are unable to stand in the way of the system of the Mahdi. Whatever they do, it ends up being in favor of the system of the Mahdi.

780

Almighty God guides the whole world according to the system of the Mahdi. People are not even aware of this but the course of history leads events to that direction and no one is able to prevent this.

781

There is no such thing as releasing Öcalan, it is not possible. The one who will release him has not been born yet. The Turkish nation will never let that happen.

782

They are not expecting the appearance of the Mahdi right now but they will amazingly see that the course of events is taking them there. Their feet will bring them there, even if they don’t want it. Their tongues will speak in that direction even if they, themselves, do not want it. They will have to think in that way.

783

There will be grave incidents. Other than the appearance of the Mahdi, the Moshiach, there is no salvation for the world. You will be amazed, you will be very surprised but this is the truth. God has planned this for the world and He created everything accordingly. This is destiny. There is no other way.

784

Our unity with Azerbaijan should be formed immediately. We are very close with them, we are brothers and everything we have is one. They should abolish passports and visas and people should be able to exit and enter the country without the need of submitting an identity card. It is not right to prolong this issue.

785

Those drawings they have drawn do not belong to our Prophet (saas). The drawer places a mirror in front of him and is drawing, looking carefully at the mirror. This is the whole issue. He draws himself very comprehensively, in full details and those drawings have nothing to do with our Prophet (saas). Our Prophet (saas) was exceedingly handsome.

786

High quality, state of the art weapons should be given to our soldiers. Instead of those outdated G3’s, very advanced automatic weapons should be given to soldiers. The state should collect these old, outdated weapons. They should be given full automatic weapons with 2,000 meter, 2,500 meter range. Such a show of strength, such a deterrent power, will solve the issue as a whole.

787

We will never give way to separation. There will be no federation. There will be no amnesty. Those who killed our soldiers and policemen will remain in prison for a lifetime.

788

France will turn towards religion, towards Islam: Otherwise, there will be no end to such scourges. These are only small incidents testing them. There are currently thousands of cells ready to shed blood in France. People they least expect are in this. This can only be solved with love, compassion, science and knowledge. It will not be solved any other way.

789

It is of course difficult to take care of seniors, but the good deeds attained by doing that is plenty. God makes it difficult so that the deeds attained there will be plenty. Such good deeds should not be missed.

790

People should keep their grandparents at home with them. That would bring richness to their homes. Placing them in nursing homes would bring about direness. You can provide the same conditions at home as well. You can reserve a room of your house to them and that would bring about auspiciousness to your home. The hardships and sufferings experienced there will bring about goodness.

791

Before all else you should eliminate the idol of the antichrist. You should first eliminate Darwinism and materialism. With what? With science, with knowledge, with reason and thought. Then you will explain the facts leading to faith and the miracles of the Qur’an. Only then people would come to believe.

792

Fear of God is the start of love. Those who do not fear God do not know love. Fear of God is the origin of passion and love.

793

The troubles started to arise after 100 years with all its severity. First, WWI and WWII started because of Darwinism. And now a massacre and a suicide whirlwind has started in the whole world. This scourge will stop with the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), insha’Allah.

794

France thought that it is very easy to be atheists. They presumed that it is very easy to be Darwinists, materialists. They have sown the seeds of the antichrist. The system of the antichrist has now started to bear its poisonous fruits.

795

France presumed that a Darwinist, materialist education, a Godless education, is something reasonable. They have now caused great trouble for themselves. Those Godless, irreligious youth they have brought up is now forming a great army of afflictions, of scourges. Not only the youth of Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria but also the French youth is like this.

796

When incidents are taking place, God commissions His angels everywhere. Nothing happens as a coincidence. Azrael, the angel of death, is the one who takes the lives of all those that die. Taking permission from God, he goes to take the life of a person. The hour and minute of everything is predestined.

797

Jesus Messiah will draw attention with his sharp intelligence and conscientiousness. He will be very faithful, amazingly religious. His faith would never be shaken.

798

Alewism is love, it is brotherhood, it is peace, it is bravery, it is courage. Alewism is a system that depicts love very beautifully. There is profundity in Alewism.

799

Alewism is bravery as the name states. If one feels love for Hazrat Ali (ra) I would love him even more.

800

Seditions would engulf France, Europe and everywhere else. Bloody, very big incidents will take place in 2015. It will be the same in 2016 and in 2017 as well. A relief period will start in 2019. God would not give relief to people unless they hold on tight to God. And this is only possible with the Mahdi (pbuh).

801

If people hold on to God, if they love God, God would love them as well. If they forget God, God says “I will forget them as well.”

802

Fethullah Gulen is a warm hearted, compassionate person. So are his friends. I am his guarantor. These people would never get involved with acts of terror or violence. The Deep State pesters themselves upon them, that is a separate issue. The Deep State and the Fethullah Gulen community and his friends should be differentiated between.

803

No government could ever stand up to Darwinism. Darwinism is perceived to be sacred. All the states of the world bow down in front of Darwinism. But we’ve got hold of Darwinism with science, knowledge, reason and opinions.

804

Even if you add up all the antichrist movements up until now, it wont make one percent of this great antihrist. Darwinism and materialism is such a great movement of the antichrist.

805

There is no such Godless, Bookless movement as comprehensive as Darwinism ever since the world began. I mean this is the first belief, the first Godless, Bookless movement that have taken hold of 6 or 7 million people. This is the system of the antichrist.

806

Freedom of faith; this is the greatest beauty the CHP can provide. They should be close to religious communities. They should show that they will present love to everyone.

807

God would not give comfort to a nation who doesn't love Him. For those who love Him, God would give comfort. France should look for salvation in faith, in the love of God and in the fear of God.

808

Troubles will rain down upon France in streams let me tell you that much. This scourge will engulf the whole of Europe. They are not listening to reason. God did not create this world as a place of fun. Belief in God is crucial. Loving God is crucial. That is the reason of existence for the universe. If you keep away from God, God would not give comfort to you.

809

Unity and solidarity can only be possible with faith in God, with loving God. Without the love of God, the door to disasters will be opened.

810

We should protect and look over street animals in this cold weather. A piece of cheese, a piece of meat would be crucial for them. They would increase their resistance. Otherwise, if they can't find anything to eat, they might die of cold, may God forbid. Therefore, anyone who sees them should give them a piece of food.

811

Surat Al-Kahf entirely refers to the system of the Mahdi. The 55th verse of Surat An-Nur refers to the global dominion of the moral values of the Qur’an. There are many verses. Surah Joseph, the Story of Solomon they all refer to the system of the Mahdi with symbols.

812

The PKK became rabid on one hand, the hypocrites became rabid on the other and the unbelievers became rabid. They are attempting to do all sorts of vileness. Muslims should behave very temperate and very reasonable. They should be aware of the fact that God is the Creator of all movements. They should see the good in everything and act patiently and reasonably according to the Qur’an and respond accordingly.

813

We are at a time when the chains of the antichrist and satan are unreaved. The chains of the antichrist are unreaved. Our Prophet (saas) says- “The antichrist is chained and will be unchained in the End Times.” When the antichrist is unchained, the unbelief will be unchained as well and will start attacking. Tyrants, hypocrites and immorals would then find it convenient to attack.

814

Turkey should discontinue Darwinist education. That would be the greatest blow to unbelief and the system of the dajjal. They would agonize over this. They would move heaven and earth. Explaining Darwinism comprehensively and then giving the scientific response to it would be great.

815

God will foist Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) on people with His Name “Al-Jabbar” and “Al-Qahhar.” It will not be possible to plead ignorance. God wants Islam to prevail in the world. You can resist all you like, but no one could ever withstand God’s wishes.

816

People should return to the Qur’an and for that to happen, people should turn their faces towards the system of the Mahdi. Without the system of the Mahdi, turning towards the Qur’an is very difficult. If it were possible, it would have been done by now.

817

Freedom of thought does not mean insulting everyone, upsetting everyone, hurting them and attempting to suffocate their joy and love. Love should be taken as basis. The concept of freedom of thought is sacred; that is okay, but love is even more sacred, kindness is even more sacred, respect is even more sacred.

818

The bigots say that Islam is the religion of the grave. You live under the soil, you live in darkness in their world. And they say, “There is radiance in their world, there is light, there is music and there is art. There is life in their world, there is dance; such a religion is unacceptable. Religion is lived under the soil, it is lived through with torture. You live in blood and pus and that is what religion is,” they say. And some naive people believe in this. They thus surrender to satan unknowingly. We are spoiling this game and we will continue to do so!

819

As we demonstrate the enlightened face of Islam, the bigots are trying to prevent this beauty in their own minds by crying out with all their might like the cries of bats in darkness. Struggle all you want, it is not possible for you to prevent this in the time of the Mahdi.

820

The life of bigots is full of blood, pus and horridness. There is no joy, no happiness and no life for them. There is only treachery, pretense and gossip in their lives. There is sedition and corruption and all sorts of filth in bigotry, in radicalism.

821

Bigotry promises a horrible and dark life. When we ripped away this scourge, the bright, enlightened, free, joyous, beautiful aspect of religion appeared.

822

According to the radical mindset, religion is a faith for the grave; it is a religion where death and darkness is experienced. In irreligiousness, there is music, there are paintings, there is fun, there is dance and there is life. In religion – according to their mindset- there is no music, no life, no fun. It is like they are buried alive. Everything is unlawful according to their mindset, everything is forbidden and there is no life! It is like the life of a man buried under asphalt.

823

Satan helps those with weak sagacity. Satan attracts them. But Muslims do not fall prey to such plots. Satan doesn’t have any power over Muslims.

824

Muslims and people of faith would always be attacked. Spineless ones with weak character would be defeated. But noble, decent people with strong personality would not collapse and remain standing with the help of God.

825

At the time of our Prophet (saas) they were intimidating weak and characterless people. They were thus preventing them from joining our Prophet(saas). But those with strong faith and personality always remained beside the Messenger of God (saas).

826

Planning to bring in a federative system, planning to break up Turkey and release Abdullah Ocalan: That is a grave ignobility and a viciousness that is far worse than killing. That is a grave sedition. Almighty God says that “sedition is worse than killing.”

827

If you release the murderers, it would come to mean that it is okay to kill people. The push button for the Last Day would then be pressed. The Last Day will break loose.

828

The person who accepts separation is actually the most characterless, most ignoble, most disreputable person of the world.

829

Depravity will be widespread so long as Darwinist education continues, so will scourges and as you see, they do continue to be widespread.

830

The best precaution that could be taken and the greatest slap in the face of communism worldwide is to forbid Darwinist education as a pioneer government. I mean forbidding it in the following sense; teaching Darwinism in details but also giving the scientific response to it. After that there will be no communism, no anarchy, no PKK left behind.

831

Darwinist education should be discontinued immediately. Darwinism can be taught, but the response to it should be taught as well. They have banned teaching the response of it; this is the problem. It is not possible to show the paleontological evidence, it is forbidden to show the fossils that have been excavated; it is forbidden to show those millions of proofs.

832

Even if a million of us were martyred, we will never ever give up a handful of our land. Even if two million people were martyred, we will never give up a handful of our land, Even if three million of us were martyred we will never ever give up a handful of our land. They should forget about it!

833

If Turkey will be broken up into pieces, life will have no meaning for us. I mean there will be no meaning for any Turkish man to live, there will be no meaning for anyone else to live. That is because it will then be a honorless, undignified, ignoble life. There will be no meaning to life for anyone. The Last Day will then break loose. It will be the end of the whole world.

834

Autonomy is never acceptable. That would mean the ruin of Turkey, that would mean the ruin of the whole Middle East. No Turkish man could ever accept something like that. I mean we would fade away as a whole, the whole world would fade away.

835

Granting an amnesty for murderers is the gravest danger for Turkey. That will be the sign for Turkey’s ruin. If one forgives those who martyred our soldiers and police officers, that person is the most debased, most characterless man in the world.

836

A lack of love prevails in the world. People want separation because lovelessness prevails. They want separation and they hate others. For instance, they hate the country they live in, they hate one another. People living in the same cities hate each other. Families hate each other, people hate one another. The issue of love should be solved before all else.

837

Lack of love and egoism drags people into fragmentation. Love on the other hand brings about integration. Would anyone want to be separated from his loved one? One would only want to be separated from those he doesn’t love. One would not want to see those he hates. All these fragmentations in the world stem from a lack of love.

838

God says; “You are the best nation ever to be produced for the mankind.” That is a nation as a whole, in unity like neighbors, like families, one within the other.

839

We are Muslims; Muslims constitute a whole, they are in unity and they do not fragment. God deemed separation among Muslims unlawful. Fragmentizing Muslims is one of the gravest unlawful acts. It is unacceptable for Muslims to be fragmented under any name.

840

All Mahdi movements serve the real Mahdi (pbuh) whether they like it or not.

841

We see that all the enthusiasts about becoming a false Mahdi have gone upside down. That means striving for it would not make it happen, being an enthusiast would not make it happen: God is the One Who creates that person as the Mahdi.

842

Watching the system of the Mahdi, watching the artistry and glory of Almighty God is very important. Our brothers should watch in enthusiasm and attention. Everything our Prophet (saas) has foretold has come true step by step.

843

Acceptance of the Truth only becomes possible after worldwide violence. Without that violence, the acceptance seems impossible. We see this in the Ad tribe and the Thamud tribe and all the other tribes. There has to be violence. People tend to leave this world behind when faced with violence and start thinking about the Hereafter.

844

There is a need for enormous violence for the awakening of humanity and the acceptance of the system of the Mahdi. I mean people do not draw closer to accepting the Truth, unless they are subjected to violence.

845

God wants the Last Day to come and these people want to have fun in this world. The world has gotten old, it is over, the world is done! God wants to create the Hereafter and wants to show the Hereafter to people.

846

The system of the Mahdi is not a movement that is in a hurry. The system of the Mahdi is not going towards a certain point. Incidents come towards the system of the Mahdi. 2015 will be a year of disasters; 2016 will be the year of disasters as well and so will the year 2017 but eventually they will have to accept what they have resisted. The goal of God will eventually come to fruition.

847

The only reason behind the terror God is making them live through is that they do not accept the Mahdi (pbuh). The dosage of the terror, the dosage of the violence will increase so long as they do not accept the Mahdi. You will eventually have to accept the Mahdi (pbuh) as the manifestation of God’s Names “Al Jabbar and Al Qahhar.”

848

God will increase the pressure a little further in 2015. They will start screaming, “What should we do? What can we do?” Later on the system of the Mahdi will become a current issue and they will say, “Should not the Islamic world have a leader?” They will say, “there has to be a leader”. And they will start discussing what they should do. Later on they will start mentioning the name of the “Mahdi”. And then they will start looking for the Mahdi (pbuh). Actually that search will be a mere formality. I mean God will make them obliged in the matter they most seek to avoid.

849

Almighty God will bring the arrogant ones of the world to their knees in the forthcoming days and make them accept the system of the Mahdi. And you will all watch it altogether.

850

They should build churches and synagogues as well. Those were all free to build in the time of our Prophet (saas). God commands Muslims to protect churches and synagogues, not to attack them.

851

If you challenge the system of the Mahdi with D8, if you invent artificial systems in your own mind against the system of the Mahdi, if you do not like the system God created and instead say, “Here is D8 for you” you would be defeated as a result.

852

Some people want there to be no Hereafter, no system of Mahdi and no Islamic Union. They want to dwell on earthly trivia. They want to struggle with problems with checks and deeds. They want to buy cars and sell cars. This is not a place for having fun. When that is the case, God turns this world into a living hell.

853

Almighty God has one goal; this world is not created in vain. God wants to make Islam prevail in the world, make His Mahdi appear, make Jesus Messiah descend to earth and show him to the people; God wants to bring about the Last Day and bring about the end of this world after a short while and make people see the End Times.

854

Whoever feels an affection towards the system of the Mahdi, and feels an attachment to it, becomes exalted and gets stronger. That is because the geography of the Middle East is shaped according the Mahdi (pbuh), according to the system of the Mahdi.

855

Whoever loves the Mahdi (pbuh) God deems them strong. Because Iran loves the Mahdi (pbuh) God takes away the scourge of the PKK from them, He gives them strength and power, he gives them courage. Whoever keeps away from the Mahdi is crushed and ruined. For instance, Iraq assumed an attitude against the system of the Mahdi and it is ruined. Syria, Egypt assumed an attitude against the system of the Mahdi and they are ruined.

856

Iran is already strong and influential in the region right now. That is because they carry an enthusiasm stemming from religion, stemming from the system of the Mahdi.

857

Some say, “Why do we suffer through ordeals in this world? Why do we feel pain?” That is because you are educated through those pains. You become a person, you become a real human being. Otherwise, if you do not suffer through any ordeals, you would simply be dull. Man is educated through ordeals.

858

Love is very important. Suffering through ordeals is very important. Wherever there is a person in need, wherever there is a suffering person, if he is an artist, he would become a genuine artist. A person who hasn’t suffered any pain would instantly be felt. He would instantly be known.

859

A Muslim should be alert against insanity, against running amok; that is a plot of satan. Satan wants to drag people into Hell. It wants to drag people to its side. A Muslim should not accept that because he knows that it is religiously unlawful; he would seek refuge in Almighty God and say, “God is enough for us and the Best of Guardians,” and avoid unlawful conduct.

860

Muslims would never even consider suicide. That is also a form of murder. It is unacceptable. In the Qur’an God says; “We impose on no self any more than it can bear.”

861

We will demolish the rule of satan. The rule of the system of the Mahdi will come. The rule of God, the rule of our Lord will come.

862

Egoism brings about separation. One would hold onto his possessions. This is the main characteristic of egoism. But if there is no egoism, there is generosity. Generosity does not accept borders. There should be no borders, so that one could put his generosity into practice and show his friendship and love easily.

863

Life comes to an end if there is egoism. Egoism is a poison, it is a powerful poison; I mean even a tiny bit of it can kill a society. Egoism should disappear from society.

864

There is richness in unity. For instance, the European countries have united but because the bond they have between them is not a bond of faith, because it is not a bond of love, they are not successful. When the Islamic world unites, the bond they have between them will be a bond of love and there will be no borders, no visas, no passports and thus both trade and friendship will easily be established and sustained. There will be a sound, vivid, lively life based on love and generosity, far removed from selfishness and egoism.

865

Those who come to power democratically can only be overthrown with democratic means. Those who come to power with elections can only go with elections. If a government can easily be overthrown with a few tapes and a few rumors, with such threats it means there is no democracy.

866

Special Operations teams should be supported very well. It would be very beneficial to increase their number to forty thousand in a very short time. The Special Operations teams can vanquish the PKK. Pitting novice soldiers against these scum is very wrong.

867

There is no hatred against synagogues in the Qur’an, there is no hatred against churches. On the contrary, Almighty God says that Muslims should protect churches and synagogues.

868

“Israel” is the name of a Prophet. One should not say “Damn Israel!”. The Qur’an addresses the Prophet Jacob as “Israel”. The name Israel is mentioned in the Qur’an and what are you saying? You are saying – may God forbid- ‘Damn Israel!’

869

The Prophet Moses (pbuh) is our prophet as well and so is the Prophet Abraham (pbuh). Some say “these are the Prophets of Jews and Jesus is the Prophet of Christians.” Actually they are all our prophets, they are all Prophets of Islam. They all are Muslims.

870

The birth of our Prophet (saas) is a feast for us, it is a celebration. He brought light to this world, he shone brightly in the world. May God be pleased with him. We are all very pleased with him; insha’Allah, may he be pleased with us in the Hereafter as well. Above all else is the approval of God of course, insha’Allah.

871

The Qur’an is pure revelation. That is why those who read the Torah should definitely read it with the Qur’an. Those who read the Gospels should read it with the Qur’an. Or else they might get confused and be misinformed, may God forbid.

872

We need to be alert and cautious against the tendency for idolatry. In sickness, in university exams, in the selection of friends, in everything, idolatry becomes a trouble for them. In fact, if they should keep their contact with God and constantly pray and be close to God. Then there will be great abundance.

873

We’ve been entrusted a soul and yet we are made up from the weakest material. Stones are strong, steel is strong, iron is strong, these elements are very strong but flesh and bones are actually the weakest materials. They rot instantly, they come apart instantly. The soul is waiting there inside that shield. When the flesh and bone dies, the soul will be freed.

874

There is no place for conflicts, there is no place for hatred in this world. We will teach love to the world. Hatred is very painful, it is agonizing, it is tiresome and disgusting; love on the other hand is very beautiful. Israel, Jordan and all those places are incredibly beautiful. Make peace, hold on to each other, be brothers.

875

Our National Intelligence Organization Service should increase the number of their people in the Southeast. I mean they should have a lot of people among the public residing in that region. That would be a good contribution for the public and it would be great in respect of security as well. There should be a very strong news flow. We need to be informed about the slightest movement there.

876

Elections cannot be held in places under the threat of the PKK. Such an election would not be valid. If our police and soldiers fill that region and ensure the security of our people living there, and if still the PKK wins the elections there, that might be acceptable but otherwise the people there are voting for the PKK or the HDP because of intimidation.

877

Village guards should have the force of police officers, they should be insured, they should have salaries; we would be proud to provide such means for them. That would be an incentive for all of us, we would be happy with their happiness.

878

There is no such thing to be called the Solution Process: What there is, is actually the PKK trying to widen their field of operations, their field of power in the region.

879

The PKK says that we should abrogate the system of village guards. What does this mean? That means we should double the number of village guards. Now we should be aware that all they call white is actually black and all they call black is actually white. What does abrogating the system of village guards mean? That means this system is the greatest of dangers for them.

880

ISIS should strictly avoid doing any harm to Turkish intelligence officers. They all have good intentions. They are there for the good of everyone. When they recognize one of our brave agents they should deport them back to Turkey and that is all they should do. Killing them is strictly unacceptable. It would be religiously unlawful.

881

Some Muslims imagine that being against Christians' celebrations during Christmas that take place once a year is a great way of striving on the path of God. Instead of being false heroes on that day, they should preach religion all through the year and talk about Islam and preach the miracles of the Qur’an.

882

People vote for those who do not humiliate them. They vote for those who hold them in esteem, who do not look down upon them, for those who do not have such an unruly expression on their faces, who do not insult those they hold dear. They vote for those who love their God, their religion, their faith. That is the secret behind it.

883

The impact of difficulties on Muslims is exactly opposite of their impact on unbelievers. Difficulties directly cause them to crumble . With Muslims on the other hand, difficulties directly cause them to become even more perfect. That is a secret knowledge of God, that is the Hidden Knowledge of God, those who do not look carefully wouldn’t see. Only those who look with the light of faith would see.

884

Difficulties turn into blessings that make Muslims more beautiful and look even younger, that opens the minds of Muslims, increases their profundity and reinforces their foresight and perception.

885

A person who suffers through ordeals and who experiences hardships will become beautiful. He becomes even more beautiful as time passes and he becomes even younger. If the unbelievers live through the same things, they would collapse. But Muslims become even younger and even more beautiful with hardships. These have the exact opposite impact.

886

When one lives among Muslims, even if God gives very limited means, he feels happy. Even if a limited beauty is formed, that feels like a great beauty for Muslims. For instance, a Muslim has a small table but he feels happy with it but that is not the case with unbelievers, they would ask for better even if they have the best table setting. A Muslim on the other hand knows how to be thankful and he thanks God for his position.

887

When an unbeliever looks at a Muslim, God creates a shade before his eyes. They become unable to see the beauty there. They keep saying, “These ones are unable to live their lives to the fullest.”

888

A Muslim should definitely live suffering through ordeals and hardships. For instance one writes books and makes research for God while the other goes around having fun. But Muslims suffer through hardships. Then you look and see that he is very radiant and has become so beautiful. The other one says, “I am living my life in leisure,” but you see that he has become dull and blunt and has lost his meaning. Such a person cannot have fun. He imagines that he is having fun but he cannot.

889

One doesn’t suffer in the path of God, he doesn’t suffer through ordeals or face any difficulty yet he says, “I am ready for Heaven.” You cannot go to Heaven. Do you know what you are? That means, may God forbid, you are a human being created in the form of a man with a beautiful appearance yet without soul. It is impossible for them to go to Heaven. These are created as a special intermediary form for this world.

890

Ordeals beautify people.

891

It is difficult to give a struggle against hypocrites. It is difficult to give a struggle against unbelief. It is not easy to serve Islam for God. Of course one would face hardship; that hardship beautifies Muslims. The difficulties he faced is the reason why our Prophet (saas) was so beautiful.

892

A Muslim is the one who lives by the religion of God even in hardship. Almighty God says; “ For truly with hardship comes ease; truly with hardship comes ease.” (Surat Al-Inshirah, 5-6) A Muslim would surely face such difficulties.

893

One says, “I have lived a very happy life, I have never faced any troubles all my life.” That is not a gain. First of all he won’t go to Heaven. In the Qur’an God says; “Or did you suppose that you would enter the Garden without facing the same as those who came before you?” (Surat Al-Baqara, 214) A Muslim should strive on the path of God, face difficulties and make an effort against unbelief, against the hypocrites.

894

Those who strive on the path of God become beautiful. Those who face difficulties on the path of God become beautiful. Those who do not face any difficulties become ugly, their meaning would be lost, they would become dull and blunt. I mean they would become coarse.

895

‘Red Apple’ is a hidden ideal. It is propagating the Turkish nation’s beautiful customs, traditions and understanding of love that is blended with Islam to the whole world.

896

Being a follower of Ataturk means being modern, being enlightened and sensible, being balanced and consistent, loving God, advocating the unity of the Islamic world and the Turkish world; it means advocating the Red Apple ideals, it means being decent, classy and handsome, this is what being a follower of Ataturk means.

897

People underestimate the importance of the lack of love. Is this not the system that ruined the whole world? The U.S. collapsed, Russia collapsed. They are in a phase of this collapse; they will collapse even further. Europe is ruined; Europe has gone bankrupt. Lack of love, egoism and selfishness is the only reason for that. Actually the world is big enough for all people.

898

The system of the Mahdi is a system that will make Christians, Jews and Muslims friends and brothers to each other. The system of the Mahdi is the name of the system that will unite Muslims without discriminating between religious sects. There is no solution other than the system of the Mahdi.

899

If a nation forsakes the National Anthem, once they forsake their flag, it means they are devastated. There is no meaning to their lives after that.

900

A great majority of those who say that they are the PKK actually hate the PKK. They are there because of this threat. These people have automatic weapons in their hands. The public on the other hand is unarmed. They are saying, “Yes Sir!” simply because they are afraid. That is outrageous.

901

The PKK is bullying our Kurdish brothers. This is very offensive for our Kurdish brothers. They take that to heart. The state, the government should put an end to this ignominy. They should put an end to this vileness the PKK is carrying out.

902

There is no such thing as laying down weapons for the PKK. There is no need to wait for them to lay down their weapons. We should go take their weapons and take them by the ear. We should put those who committed offenses into prison. Carrying weapons is an offense on its own anyway.

903

Our Kurdish brothers are very honorable people. Because those dishonorable scum have guns in their hands they offend our Kurdish brothers and Kurdish mothers intensely. All those weapons in the hands of the PKK should be collected.

904

Police should throw the PKK out on their ears even if they are fleeing to their caves. These are a handful of scum of the earth; they are spoiled. They have become depraved and intensely spoiled. Our Kurdish brothers and sisters, our dear ones, hate them.

905

Let us give longer ranged weapons with greater firepower to our soldiers. That would be a deterrent. It would have a very deterrent appearance as well. The Qur’an refers to the deterrent characteristic of weapons. God tells us to take precautions and prepare strong weapons so that we would have deterrent power against our enemies.

906

When the Turkish state possesses the strength to bring order to the Middle East, there will be nowhere left that Turkey cannot reach, including the U.S. Let me say this openly.

907

It is not possible to enter the Southeast right now, it is not possible to enter many districts there. We cannot send our books or preach religion there; we are unable to perform any activities. That is because there are armed people there. Those weapons they have should all be collected.

908

Our citizens in the Southeast should be patient and calm and never leave their lands. On the contrary, if there are those who left their houses they should go back. They should be brave and put their trust in God. Our state is strong enough to take over all those so-called occupied places within 48 hours. A single command issued to that end would be sufficient. It would only take a few minutes for us to wipe that scum of the earth from our lands.

909

The state should increase the number of Special Operations Police significantly. Special Operations courses should be opened everywhere. The number of Special Operations team members is very few. There should be at least 30,000, 40,000 Special Operations officers.

910

The PKK has weapons and our decent, honest people do not have weapons. Our state should give registered guns to those whom they trust and give credit to their personality, character, morality and personage. If our people have such means, the PKK would not dare to act with such depravity.

911

In the Southeast, village guard systems should be implemented in the cities as well. For instance, a village guard system could be implemented in Cizre. Let us double the number of village guards.

912

It is important to protect our citizens in the Southeast 24 hours a day. Those lands are dangerous places. We can establish small police stations there. We must establish control points. There are many armored vehicles and they can keep watch in them.

913

The real Mahdi (pbuh) has small power. I mean he has a small community, a small group of friends. Almighty God loves creating big things from scratch, He loves making tiny things great. For instance, God creates a big, 25 or 30 meter high fig tree from a small, tiny fig seed within 15 to 20 years and lets us eat hundreds of thousands of figs from that tree.

914

We will never deliver any district in the Southeast. My Kurdish mothers, Kurdish sisters, my Kurdish brothers will be able to live there in comfort. There will never be separation, whatsoever. Even if there is a promise made, we are reneging on that promise.

915

All the countries in the Shanghai group are generally governed with a presidential system and there is a mafia-like governance and dictatorship in every one of them. A presidential system brings about dictatorship and that is highly dangerous.

916

A presidential system is very dangerous. There used to be a presidential system in Egypt and it collapsed. There used to be a presidential system in Syria, it collapsed, and it also collapsed in Iraq. There is a presidential system in the USA and it is in difficulty as well. Presidential systems have brought problems all over the world. The parliamentary system on the other hand has always meant stability: That is a fact.

917

A committee decided the collapse of the Russian economy. Almighty God uses a committee, a committee headed by Hazrat Khidr (pbuh). The Archangel Michael is also responsible for this.

918

A committee decided the collapse of the Russian economy. Almighty God uses a committee, a committee headed by Hazrat Khidr (pbuh). The Archangel Michael is also responsible for this.

919

Thousands of economic specialists gather together and are unable to put an end to this economic collapse. The wisdom of God, the Archangel Michael’s implementation, renders them helpless. The command comes from God.

920

The world is being designed for the system of the Mahdi, the economy is brought down, God creates great wars and turns the world upside down. But God protects Turkey by commanding the Archangel Michael. Almighty God says, “The Mahdi is there, do not touch those lands.”

921

God brought down the American economy. The reason behind this has to do the special groundwork for the appearance of Moshiach, the Mahdi (pbuh). God brought down Russia as well; all of that is for paving the way for the Moshiach.

922

God assigns the Archangel Michael for economic rout. The Archangel Michael is the one who caused the economic rout in America; God commanded the Archangel Michael and caused the economic rout. Michael inspires people and makes them do as revealed. God is the One Who does that, but He makes the Archangel Michael instrumental in this.

923

A Darwinist, materialist education is the greatest danger in Turkey. That is a scourge on the region, on the Middle East and the world as a whole. Darwinism is being taught to our youth as if it is factual and this irreligiousness, this Godless propaganda is being protected and espoused all the time all over the world. That is the greatest danger.

924

The MHP should frequently give statements. They should make clear declarations stating that they are against separation, and that it is not possible to release Abdullah Öcalan so that our President Erdoğan’s hand will be reinforced.

925

We will never let Turkey be divided. The collapse of Turkey means the collapse of the Middle East. The collapse of the Middle East means the collapse of the whole region and that means the dawn of the Last Day.

926

In cities in which the violence and threats of the PKK holds sway, the elections would transpire as the PKK desires. If this threat is removed, people will elect the parties they truly desire. A free and fair election cannot be held in the Southeast of Turkey while the PKK threat is still present.

927

There is an attack against the members of all religions all over the world. That stems from a lack of love and the spirit of persecution. That is why this Darwinist materialist education should be stopped or else this ruthlessness will go on.

928

Disasters will continue to engulf the world so long as Darwinist, materialist education is continued. A language that defies - May God forbid – God is being used and that is done in schools all across the world. These people say “There is no God”; they say “What Darwin said was true. You have all been created as a result of coincidences.” This would offend God. That is the reason why the world is left bereft of riches. Bloodshed, scourges, and great pains have enveloped the world and this still is escalating. They should listen to reason and stop doing that.

929

Within the course of world history, they [bigots] have generally turned this world into a living hell for women. When born a woman, she doesn’t have the opportunity to have fun, to wear what she likes or to dress up. Loving and being loved is forbidden, being joyous is forbidden, everything is forbidden for them. Let them have fun, let them be joyous and wear whatever they like. Leave them alone so that they can live in peace.

930

MIT (Turkish National Intelligence Agency) is one of the most perfect intelligence agencies in the world; we congratulate them. There are no terror organizations, no groups or associations that the MIT does not hold sway over.

931

If Jews disregard the Torah and give no consequence to the command of God, a terrible disaster would come upon Israel. But if they believe that God will help them, that He will help them through the Moshiach and pray, God will save them.

932

According to Jewish accounts, the time of appearance of the Moshiach is 1999-2012. The time has come according to the Jewish calendar as well. All of the portents mentioned in the Torah have been realized. Consequently praying to God for the appearance of the Moshiach, begging God for that is the most important task of Jews right now.

933

It would be an atrocious act to try and set Israel against Turkey. The people of Israel are a community that we have been protecting and watching over compassionately all along. Turkish people are not hostile to Jews; they love Jews.

934

Let us bring positivity to the Gulen community. The only condition is to sever their connection with politics. They should remain above politics. They would then be very successful and everyone would love them. They have followed a wrong strategy there; they’ve gotten involved with politics and things got out of control.

935

The Gulen community should reconcile with the government and become friends again. The whole issue lies with their being reasonable, consistent, loving and humble, with their avoidance of arrogance. And with the Gulen community’s avoiding interfering with the politics. This is the most important point. The whole issue would be resolved once they stay away from politics.

936

There are two groups in Turkey; the 1% traitors that want to divide Turkey and the real owners of Turkey that espouse the integrity of Turkey, constituting the remaining 99%. Those that constitute the 1% are people from neighboring countries who can barely remain standing with the support of those countries. Consequently no one would ever give way to such an attempt.

937

There is a regular, brave, wise, high quality army equipped with modern weapons in Turkey. We have a brave, wise police organization and a brave, wise gendarme organization. One who could dare to split up Turkey has not yet been born.

938

The main idea in Turkey is about preventing the splitting up of the country. I mean this is what 99% of the people want. One nation, one flag, one people. Our Kurdish brothers are also of the same idea and so are we.

939

Torturing animals is moral turpitude. It is cruelty. Almighty God destroyed a nation because they tortured an animal; there is a verse in the Qur’an to that effect. The ruling against torturing an animal is very heavy. See that God ruins a whole nation. Those who do that are subjected to the wrath of God.

940

The PKK is filthy, fickle and treacherous. But the Kurdish people are proud, noble, radiant and exalted people.

941

Kurdish people are religious people; they are decent and kind. They fear God; they are noble and exalted. The PKK on the hand is full of swindlers and characterless, deceitful people.

942

The decisions given during February 28th period should all be reviewed. There really had been an operation based on perceptions in those days. At that time, they killed many people in prisons and they should all be held accountable for what they have done.

943

One needs to approach both the Gülen Community and our President Erdoğan with compassion and support them both. The PKK is constantly acting like a bully. It would be an absolute madness for a Muslim to struggle against another Muslim. They should first unite and clear up their mutual enemy, the PKK, and the rest will be easy. The rest will be solved with love, reason and knowledge.

944

When a young girl lives her life with profound faith, love and radiance, when she is brought up with a healthy, sound and reasonable upbringing, she becomes very lively and very beautiful. But that is not what they do. They say, “what happens if I become faithless?” That kills them spiritually. And when they die spiritually, they die physically as well.

945

Girls are like flowers. It is not possible for a young girl to remain healthy without faith. That is because humans are weak. They can only remain spiritually healthy with faith; once they lose their faith they become ill and many of them become inclined to commit suicide. They constantly have suicidal thoughts. They go and smoke cigarettes, drink alcohol and do whatever it takes to ruin themselves.

946

Both for men and for women, being spiritually and physically strong is connected with their purity and faith. What happens when you cut off the water of a flower? It would be scorched and ruined under the sun. That is the same with women and men. When they lose their faith, when they lose their honor, they would be ruined.

947

Banning ladies having fun is like uprooting an essential beauty out of this world. Women are the most important ornaments of the world. If women have fun, if they are happy, if they are cheerful, if they are able to show their beauty, it would be great.

948

May God give goodness to all of us, to all our people. May He give us peace, brotherhood, tranquility, ease, contentment and exhilaration. May God protect us from dissension, may God not set brothers against brothers. May our Lord settle the disputes among brothers and give Muslims the spirit of friendship, brotherhood and love. May God protect them from self-centeredness, arrogance, haughtiness and from greed for rank and position.

949

Time is passing by. It constantly brings us towards the end of our lives. Death is coming towards us and we are going towards our death. There is a meeting point and we are going towards that point.

950

I see a different kind of moral superiority in my Kurdish brothers. They have a unique beauty. This moral virtue that prevails in Anatolia manifests very beautifully on them.

951

There is no Absolute Being other than God.

952

If you approach people egotistically, love would not be formed anyway; egoism, selfishness are the enemies of love. If one stops being an egoist and selfish God would open the way for him. If you behave egotistically and selfishly God would deem you unsuccessful.

953

Passport and visa requirements should be abolished, both for Armenia and for Azerbaijan on the same day.

954

Those who love God, those who love people are gathering rapidly and they are the real force in the world. Love and peace will prevail in the world once they come together and unite.

955

There is an atrocity and a lack of love in the world. People do not love each other in a truly astonishing manner. Those who love people, those who love God will clear away this scourge.

956

It is religiously unlawful for two Muslim groups, two groups on the right path, to struggle against each other. It is a religious obligation for all Muslims to try and reconcile them, it is an obligation upon all Muslims. I mean that is not something left to their discretion but a religious obligation upon all of them. They should strive to reconcile them by all means.

957

General Amnesty is murder beyond murder. If a person has shot a soldier or a police officer, if he martyred our police and if the number of those martyred is above ten thousand, if he mutilated tens of thousands and if you provide the means to deem that lawful, it would mean that you are a million times more treacherous and more perfidious than the PKK.

958

Abdullah Öcalan says, “I used to believe in God but I have been given a Darwinist education and then I denied the existence of God and became an atheist.” The Middle East is ruined because of Darwinist, materialist education, the Ottomans collapsed because of that. And this mistake still goes on.

959

Youngsters are given a Darwinist, materialist education in schools. They are thus losing their faith. This desperate situation should be made right. For instance, the PKK militants are also given a Darwinist, materialistic education in schools and they go astray afterwards.

960

Rumors saying that “the state will pardon the PKK, they will release Abdullah Öcalan and give autonomy to the region,” are actually insults to the government. The government should take precautions against these insults. They should not allow such insults. These are such humiliating insults. This is something that even the antichrist would not accept.

961

If someone steps up and – may God forbid- says, “The PKK should be forgiven.” The meaning of that would clearly be: “What they did was normal, it is normal to shoot soldiers and it is okay to shoot police officers, of course they should be martyred –may God forbid- well done to those who did that!” Such a person would be millions of times more wicked, millions of times more treacherous and more perfidious. The PKK would be “clean” when compared to those. Such a person would then be the wickedest, most treacherous person in the world.

962

The PKK is a mafia like group, but it is the bloodiest mafia like group in the whole world. It is a group that has treacherously martyred our soldiers and police officers, that has martyred ten thousands of our lions in a terroristic environment.

963

Pardoning murder and those who shot our soldiers and police officers, making their pardoning a lawful, legitimate issue would come to mean encouraging murder. It would mean completely disregarding our martyred soldiers and police officers. That would mean the gravest insult for the families of martyrs. Those who do that would be the most despicable ones.

964

It is a grave immorality to pardon those murderers who kill soldiers and police officers. Those who do that would be atrociously immoral.

965

Being the ones who disclosed the secrets of the PKK, we have stopped the PKK’s activities in making a reputation. We’ve made everyone know that the PKK is filthy, treacherous, fickle.

966

May Almighty God reconcile the Gulen community and the government. May God give success to both parties on the path of goodness. May Almighty God not give way to the satan. May God bestow us the success of defeating the satan. May Almighty God not give way to the satan.

967

May God reconcile the Gulen community and the government, and may God give relief to their hearts. May God take away all the rage, animosity and hostility in the hearts of all Muslims and give relief, tranquility and exhilaration to the hearts instead. May God take away the troubles afflicting the people. May God bind their hearts to each other with brotherhood, love and affection.

968

The government should be reconciled with the Gulen community. It is not acceptable to just sit back and watch. That would be religiously unlawful. We are the only hope of the whole Islamic world. Pakistan, India, Syria and all others, all poverty-stricken people have expectations from us. Now what would this fight do to us? Where would that take us? We need to continue our efforts to reconcile ambitiously and determinedly. And we should pray fort his.

969

Alevism, Sunnism, Wahhabism, Christianity, Judaism should all be taught in religion courses; all religions and all religious sects should be taught in which case it would be possible for all Sunnis and Alevis to attend these classes and learn such an important culture.

970

Attacking a person whose hands are tied and who is being brought among police officers, smashing his face in is a shameful, atrocious and feckless act. Beating up a man in prison, beating a man in a police station, beating a man in handcuffs is not an act of an honest person. It is the exact opposite.

971

If some people attempt to crush our President Erdoğan, that would cause pain in the hearts of all the Turkish people because it would seem that loyalty has no meaning. Our President should definitely be protected and watched over. It would be much better if his opponents approach him in a manner more befitting good conscience.

972

Being subjected to threats is the sunnah of the Prophets. God is the One Who creates these threats.

973

What are the components of preaching religion? Pain, difficulties and threats… If these increase, the value of the preaching would increase as well, and you would attain the good pleasure of God even more. If your goal is to attain the good pleasure and the mercy of God, you would lovingly endure those. Living such a cowardly, timid life in this transient world is vey humiliating.

974

God would not give relief to those who are not on His path. If one says, “I would preach religion but I have to be very comfortable,” he would not be wanting to preach. Preaching religion is the name of the religious service performed when one is not comfortable.

975

Even under threats a Muslim would wholeheartedly want to do the right thing. He should say, “If only I were threatened so that I could attain much bigger deeds.” Our Prophet (saas) always lived under threats; he lived under the threats of Abu Jahl, Abu Lahab, the threats of the Pharaohs of that time. The Prophet Moses always lived under the threat of the Pharaoh.

976

Threats are blessings in disguise. If Islam is preached in a threatening environment, it would be a religious service. If one says, “Let me only perform my prayers and avoid threats,” his deeds will decrease considerably. But a Muslim would want to collect as many good deeds as he could. Why would one agree to attain one deed when it is possible to attain a million times more?

977

Because of the PKK many people are unable to function in the Southeast. Muslims are all leery of them but if they carry out their activities, even under threat, they would attain a lot of good deeds.

978

It is not difficult to differentiate the Kurdish people from the PKK. The PKK is filthy and the Kurdish people are immaculately radiant.

979

The PKK imagines that they could cause the Southeast to be lost in the confusion. Actually it would take us at most 48 hours to wipe them out, even if the PKK militants fought everywhere street by street. The PKK would be looking for a place to hide. They should pull themselves together.

980

There is no such thing as the “process”, let me say that openly. We would never give way to separation. Look, I am saying this openly in all sincerity; the whole world would collapse, the whole world would be razed. That would be the end of the world. They should forget about this. If they attempt to take Turkey away from us, we would take away the world from them.

981

I would never let a Muslim be killed. I would do anything to prevent murder. ISIS kills, and resorts to violence. We are against violence. But if you go and attempt to kill the one who resorts violence, you would be no different than they are. It is not acceptable.

982

Lack of respect brings about rage and nervous breakdown. One then starts looking for a place to attack with that hatred, to satisfy that hatred. That rage cannot be calmed down with mild acts. Such a person would look for ways to burn things down, kill, crack someone’s head open or to leave him a bloody mess. His nerves will be calmed a little bit only when one sees blood. It is the characteristic of the satan: satan is only satisfied with blood.

983

Our President Mr. Erdoğan is a person who lays the foundation for the Mahdi (pbuh). In my opinion, his presidency will also continue at the time of the Mahdi as well. That is because he is an ideal administrator, an ideal person. Our Prime Minister will also go on with his post at the time of the Mahdi, it appears. I mean this is how I feel. That is because he is a very talented, very decent, very trustworthy person.

984

People will pledge their allegiance to the Mahdi (pbuh) three times. The first time will be in Istanbul, the second time will be in Mecca, and the third time will be in Jerusalem. During the allegiance pledged in Jerusalem, Mahdi (pbuh) will call Jesus Messiah. He will say “Your security will be provided for. Show yourself.” After that Jesus Messiah (pbuh) will come along with a smile, together with a group of his students.

985

Opinions are nice. Freedoms are nice. Criticisms are nice as well, but only if done in kindness. When bad language is used, the laws, the legal system makes it right.

986

Religious communities constitute the backbone, the basic structure and the foundation of the government.

987

People should learn about Christianity, Judaism and Islam as a part of general culture. They should learn about Alevism, Bektashism, Shiism. If they do not know about those, it would be ignorance, it would be a deficiency.

988

God is the One Who creates success. It is a religious obligation to reconcile Muslims. We will strive for that until the end. If not this week, next week; if not next week, the week after will do. I mean it will happen sooner or later. We need to strive to that end. It is not acceptable to lose hope and step aside.

989

The whole Muslim world and all Jews will accept the appearance of the Mahdi (pbuh). The Christian world will accept it as well and there will be an amazing atmosphere of peace and brotherhood. But connection with God is of crucial importance; if people cut their connection with God, this world would cease to be a habitable place.

990

Holy relics of the Prophet Solomon and the Ark of the Covenant of the Prophet Moses will be found. The Holy Ark will be opened in the presence of Muslims, Jews and Christians. Very big incidents will take place. People should be prepared for those things.

991

If they fail to attach importance to religion, if they fail to attach the necessary importance to Moschiach, God would make what He means understood through the use of violence. But if people sincerely understand the commands of God and put their trust in God, in His Mahdi, peace and happiness would prevail.

992

Nice efforts that would emphasize that we are friends with Jews, just like we were very good friends with the Jews at the time of the Ottomans, would yield very good results.

993

Israel’s bond of friendship with Turkey is very important. Turkey is a country of key importance. Let our Jewish brothers come to Turkey and establish an environment of friendship. Friendships that appear to be symbolic have a great impact and ensure great results.

994

God wants Moschiach to appear, He wants the Mahdi (pbuh) to appear. That is depicted as a very important point in the Torah and it is also stated as a very important topic in the hadiths. God is designing the whole world according to the Moschiach, the Mahdi (pbuh) at the moment.

995

Turkey is not a suitable location for joining ISIS. The police and gendarme forces are very meticulous in Turkey. Turkey has a strong intelligence service and a determined policy against terrorism; but Syria is very suitable to go in for ISIS. There are hundreds, thousands of ways to do that. Turkey is the least convenient path.

996

There is no such thing as killing in the Name of God. Murder is a capital offence that would be punished with eternity in Hell according to Islamic law. It is not something a reasonable Muslim could ever do. Only a bloodthirsty, monstrous, psychopathic person could do that.

997

The PKK gains prestige through weapons. The moment they lay down their weapons they would lose all their prestige. The only reason why many people are praising them and talking about the PKK with a careful and respectful manner is their weapons. The moment the PKK lays down their weapons they would immensely be humiliated. Our Kurdish brothers already hate them, they are fed up with them; they would instantly throw them out.

998

The US should change this classical, hundred years old obsolete policy of violence. They should very enthusiastically and determinedly implement a peaceful, loving manner that approaches people with the compassion found in the spirit of the Gospel.

999

We do not want murder committed in our land. It would be a grave ignominy if they attempt to have Turkey as their partner in crime, as their partner in murder.

1000

We would not accept getting involved with an operation against the ISIS. We would not let Turkey commit murder. The deep state of the world should leave aside this impertinent demand. We would not let Muslims be killed. They should not attempt to drag us into these incidents.

1001

The PKK movement is a movement of the antichrist. God created the antichrist and his opponent; the system of the Mahdi. Right now the system of the antichrist is in a war with the system of the Mahdi. God says; “It is the party of God who are victorious!” The system of the antichrist is bound to be defeated.

1002

The PKK is the biggest mafia organization in the Middle East and Abdullah Öcalan is the leader of that organization. There is not any other mafia leader higher than him. Actually, Abdullah Ocalan is a crime boss.

1003

The PKK would be devastated if they lay down their weapons, they cannot survive. Anyone that comes by would easily crush them. Many people respect them simply because they have weapons. The minute they lay down their weapons both, ISIS and Syria would walk all over them, everyone would walk all over them; they are well aware of this. That is because they have a rotten ideology and a murderous philosophy.

1004

The Darwinist way of thinking denies the existence of God, it denies the existence of the Prophets, it denies revelation. Darwinism is a system that denies all of our sacred values.

1005

There is no freedom for cursing. No one should say, “I have the freedom of cursing, I have the freedom to insult others.” Everyone has freedom of speech but there is no such thing as freedom to insult. If one says I want to curse anyway, the law gets hold of him.

1006

The Mahdi’s existence is necessary for the unity of Muslims. No one would unite around a Sunni scholar. No one would unite around a Shia or Wahhabi scholar but they would all unite around Imam Mahdi (pbuh). They would have united a century ago if they could unite any other way.

1007

It is clearly understood that the year 2015 will be a year in which terror and pains will be experienced without love, without the fear of God, without mercy. These incidents will go on until God draws attention to the system of the Mahdi. This will go on until people see the system of the Mahdi as a means for salvation.

1008

We need to target the PKK’s religion. What is their religion? Darwinism. In that case, we should target their religion as well. We need to explain the invalidity of Darwinism to the youth. This is the most crucial topic.

1009

Everything they write about my Kurdish brothers that would make them take offense would return and stick to them. Gold is not affected by anything. My Kurdish brothers are like gold. The things those filthy men say against them wouldn’t have the slightest effect on my Kurdish brothers. Their bravery, their superiority is certified.

1010

Our people in the Southeast loathe the PKK as they loathe filth. Our Kurdish brothers are very honorable people. They are very proud very fond of their dignity. When someone threatens them, they take it to heart. The state should not let my proud, strong-headed, brave, tough brothers of mine to go through this pain.

1011

The state has many television stations, it can publish a newspaper if need be, but it can also use TRT Avaz, TRT6. The state can thus carry out enormous anti-communist propaganda against the PKK.

1012

Giving free rein to the PKK in the Southeast in the name of democracy, in the name of freedom would cause loss of territory and it would cause our citizens to be persecuted in those fields. Even though they are not communists, our citizens say that they are communists. Even though they do not have any connection with the PKK, they say that they are the PKK. That is a grave persecution for them.

1013

PKK militants have conducted immense fieldwork in the Southeast. There is a mafia type domination; the state is liable for protecting her citizens against this mafia dominance.

1014

Just like it is the case for 99 percent of all Muslims in the world, ISIS is also in a state of idolatry and is diseased with that affliction. They are mistaken and they are in the wrong. With Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) being instrumental, together with all other Muslims, ISIS, the Taliban and all others will be saved from this affliction, from this disease.

1015

ISIS is a structuring that is destined to be victorious; I mean victory is in their destiny. That is how they are depicted in the hadiths. They will overtake all those lands, they will rule on those lands. And eventually they will pledge allegiance to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). There will be no more bloodshed after that.

1016

The CHP should be venturesome, very audacious and should possess a very innovative spirit. They should very thorough internalize Ataturk’s understanding of piety and make it prevail within the party.

1017

Radicals are different than Muslims. Those who ascribe partners to God and those Muslims who don’t are different. I am criticizing those who ascribe partners to God. I am criticizing those who became idolaters without being aware of it. I am criticizing the radicals. The ones who abide by the Qur’an are called Muslims.

1018

Islam is portrayed as a religion of terror. This is the reason behind this dislike. They call it Islamophobia but actually this is terror-phobia; people are afraid of terror. You are talking about a system of terror and you are presenting it as if it is Islam. You have named terror as Islam. Actually there is compassion, mercy, love, arts, aesthetics, science, beauty and everything beautiful in Islam.

1019

The fact that Turkey is a modern country should be emphasized thoroughly. It should be well emphasized that we are a democratic country that protects the rights of women, that advocates the arts, beauty, aesthetics and science. A misleading image has been formed about our country, portraying Turkey as inclined to radicalism: We need to eliminate that image completely.

1020

The state should not spare TRT6 to shawn and drum music, instead they should turn it to a channel that broadcasts programs in which we can explain the invalidity of communism, Darwinism and the dreadfulness of Stalinism. That is crucial.

1021

It is not possible for us to make anti-communist, anti-materialist propaganda house by house, street by street in the Southeast of Turkey, but it could be easily be done with TRT6.

1022

Right now the PKK is conducting field-work. That is because they need a calm environment to explain themselves and make propaganda. The police or the gendarme should not interfere with their work for them to do that. They are conducting political propaganda, communist propaganda in the coffeehouses, in the streets, in the mountains.

1023

There is only one PKK, only one leadership and that is the leadership of Abdullah Öcalan and that is it. “They will lay down their weapons,” “They will come down from the mountain” these are all words said to misinform people and buy time. In the meantime the PKK makes progress. For instance they take over cities, they establish courthouses and assign governors.

1024

There are murderers who killed tens of thousands of our soldiers and policemen in prisons, and releasing them is out of discussion. That would mean it is OK to kill people. Then Turkey would be razed to the ground, may God forbid.

1025

The state should open TRT 6 (the state owned television channel broadcasting in Kurdish) to us. We cannot go over the whole Southeast Anatolia with conferences alone. The state has professors, associate professors. Let us provide the material and they can go and explain. Nothing other than that could work.

1026

They want to suffocate Muslims in their own lands by making Middle Eastern people annihilate other Middle Eastern people. Because the PKK is a filthy, treacherous and fickle structuring, they found them to be the most suitable ones.

1027

The system of the antichrist is planning to annihilate Islam with the Muslims they have turned into communists.

1028

The system of the antichrist is planning to establish an antichrist system in Turkey and ruin the entire Middle East with the people they turned into the followers of the antichrist. In the meantime, they don’t want to use American soldiers; they don’t want to use European soldiers. They want to use the Middle Eastern people they have turned into communists against their own people.

1029

There is a system that is attempting to overthrow the government of the Republic and the state; that is the characteristic of the PKK. Their goal is out in the open; they want to destroy the state. They want to found a communist state instead. They want to divide the Southeast and then seize the rest of the country. Abdullah Öcalan’s thinking is a Marxist, Leninist, Stalinist thinking.

1030

If all the nations were loved, all the nations would be at ease. But if one says that they will persecute another nation, that opens the door to persecution for all nations and that is not acceptable. If you feel love you love everyone, if you don’t you wont feel love for anyone.

1031

The lack of love, the reaction against Israel is about eighty percent. That is a horrible rate. This should be made right immediately. Moderate, beautiful, loving statements coming from our politicians would be very beneficial in this respect. We need to be a nation that loves other countries. Anything other than that would not befit us.

1032

The power of loving other countries, other nations, is insufficient. If you do not love the other servants of God, you cannot love Turkey either. Just be sincere. Love Syrians, Arabs, Greeks, Russians, Iranians, Europeans, Americans. They all are the servants of God, all colorful, how nice this is. God created this as a blessing.

1033

Secularism doesn’t mean silencing religion. It doesn’t mean using religion either. It means living religion sincerely. If a politician wants to talk about God as he feels, he should be able to do so.

1034

There is a preparation for a great massacre in Kandil. They should evacuate Kandil. They should heed my word. They didn’t in the past and they all have been slaughtered. ISIS will raid Kandil. They will not leave anyone alive there. They will slaughter them all. They should evacuate to the mountains. They cannot say that I didn’t warn them. I am saying this in advance.

1035

If you love God, the image you love would not disappear for all eternity. Nothing that exists would ever cease to exist. Once something exists it will never cease to exist. That is not possible, it is not possible in a technical sense either.

1036

God is the One Who shows beauty, He shows beauty as an image. The whole of it belongs to God, God is the One Who makes one love, He is the One Who shows it. So you should give all your love to God. The man who doesn’t give his love to God but gives it to an individual, then starts complaining.

1037

The understanding of Ataturk should settle in the CHP. Ataturk’s understanding of love, friendship, brotherhood and unity, his understanding of Turkish Islamic Union, his understanding of Islamic unity, a union of the Turkish world, his understanding of love towards the Qur’an, his approach about women and the arts should settle in the CHP. Once this is covered, there is no need for the CHP to do anything else; our people would embrace them instantly.

1038

Russia and Turkey are longstanding friends and they will remain as friends. Our mutual love is very strong. Our trade is strong because of that, I believe, but trade is of secondary importance for us. Love, friendship, brotherhood, mutual trust; these are the most crucial topics.

1039

Lack of love and a mutual spirit of intimidation are the hotbeds of all problems. This mutual spirit of intimidation should be put away. Love and enthusiasm should be put forth. The spirit of friendship should envelop the whole world. This is the whole issue.

1040

Love is the most powerful weapon in the world. It is sincerity and spirit of friendship. That brings about positive energy. This is what Europe, the world and all of humanity is looking for.

1041

Those who read the Treatise of Light from cover to cover and perfectly understand it attain a distinguished reasoning. They become totally different personalities with their reasoning, with their judgments and submission to God. But that happens when they really know the Treatise of Light, when they internalize and perceive what is written inside.

1042

When one is wronged, when he is backstabbed, he attains good deeds from that as well. The backstabbed one attains good deeds. God strengthens those who are backstabbed. God strengthens those who are wronged. He would not let them fall in weakness.

1043

Presidential systems end up in great civil commotions, big wars. Nothing happens in parliamentary systems on the other hand. Presidential systems have all collapsed in the Middle East. It has been a pain in the US as well. The presidential system is not an auspicious path; it is a dire method. Let us not get involved with it at all.

1044

The Treatise of Light consists of magnificent books. The Treatise of Light should certainly be read everyday. It should be kept handy. The undistorted, true passages of the Torah and the Gospel should also be benefited from.

1045

Racism is moral turpitude. Black people are really very beautiful people; they are intelligent, talented, good mannered and humble people.

1046

The AK Party should advocate that women should be at least as strong as men in every sphere of life and at least as high in number as men. For instance, at least half of the National Assembly should consist of women. At least half of government officers should also be women and women should be positively discriminated towards.

1047

Women are superior in love, in mercy, in compassion, in quality, in beauty. Women are clever and very intelligent creatures. Men tend to think more superficially, their way of thinking is more plain: Women, on the other hand, are able to think very creatively and they are much stronger than men in their talents and tendency towards the arts, beauty and aesthetics.

1048

If you teach hatred for Israel to your people, the whole Islamic world would also learn hatred for each other. If you do not love the children of the Prophet Abraham (pbuh), how will you love Muslims? You should love the children of the Prophet Moses (pbuh); you should love the Armenians, Greeks, Catholics, Protestants, so that you could also love Muslims. They all are the servants of Almighty God.

1049

If there is no quality in a country, it means there is nothing left for that country, may God forbid. Without quality, there would be no life, no art. Since life is intertwined with the arts, we give the name “quality” to the beauty that appears in there.

1050

There is no one who supports the PKK in the Southeast of Turkey. They give no significance to the PKK. They are actually revolted by them, but they respect their guns. They only feel that respect towards their guns; they only fear their guns and bow in front of those guns, that is the whole issue.

1051

Muslims are the real friends of the Kurdish people. We all love our Kurdish brothers and sisters very much.

1052

If you know yourself, it means you know God.

1053

What does attempting to divide Turkey mean? It means challenging the system of the Mahdi. Those challenging the system of the Mahdi would be devastated.

1054

If a member of the parliament does wrong, we would not re-elect him. We would not say, “What is done is done!” but we would have an election and cast our votes. We would not let them go on with that post. Sovereignty belongs to our nation.

1055

Fear of God is required for love; love of God is required. Love is not for the bone and flesh; the manifestations of God are loved. What would you love in someone if you simply think that person as someone who will die and be diminished? The Infinite One would be loved and that Infinite One is God and one can only feel love for another as a manifestation of God.

1056

If they attempt to destroy Turkey, they would actually be attempting to destroy the whole world. We would not let that happen. That means a general uprising in Turkey, may God forbid. Everything would be leveled. That would be the greatest insult to our people.

1057

Pardoning the PKK, putting the PKK out in the streets means making it free to kill our soldiers and our police officers. They keep saying, “We will establish an independent state in the Southeast, we will have Abdullah Öcalan as our leader in that state.” There would be no homeland, no nation, no flag, nothing left behind. There would be no honor, no pride and no dignity left behind after that.

1058

The alliance of Muslims and Christians, the alliance of Muslims and Jews against the antichrist is urgent. Muslims should be one within the other with the Christians.

1059

Muslims should ally with religious Christians or else the antichrist will crush both Muslims and Christians and Jews. Muslims, Jews, Christians and all, they plan not to leave any devout people.

1060

There is no love in the way radicals talk; there is no mercy, no compassion, no friendship. There is no notion of unity and integrity. These are all against the Mahdi; they are all anti-Jesus Messiah. They all defer to communism and Darwinism. They defer to the PKK as well; in fact they are really very cowardly.

1061

There will be a very wide place for those who will attempt to divide Turkey; that is Hell. They would have no place other than that. No one should look for trouble. They should be aware of this.

1062

One goes through a very staggering trial. People should not expect such an easy trial and they should not be surprised to see that it is not easy. Otherwise, it would not be a trial anyway. The man wants to live a life with the mindset of a retired person and then die that way; that is not going to happen. Muslims go through a staggering trial if they have genuine faith.

1063

According to the Torah, Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will realize that he is the Mahdi from the ordeals he suffered through and from the patience he showed in the face of these ordeals.

1064

We will all go to Hereafter. There will be no one who wouldn’t. Almighty God puts us through an important trial, an important test. Without this education we cannot be normal people.

1065

Reasonable, rational, democratic, loving generations who love all people, generations who love people from all religions should be raised. They are teaching hatred towards Jews, towards Christians, towards Shia, towards Sunnis; that is not acceptable.

1066

The mistake of ISIS is that they do not fully abide by the Qur’an. They act on false hadiths. When they abide by those false hadiths, such incidents like chopping people up, beheading them and acts of violence occur. There is a grave mistake in this.

1067

By means of us, Turkey has become a champion in believing in God. No one believes in Darwinism in Turkey, 90 percent of the people do not believe in Darwinism. The percentage of those who believe in Darwinism is very high in Peru, in South America; it is 70,80,90%. The percentage of those who believe in Darwinism is only five percent in Turkey. That happened by means of our humble activities.

1068

They are trying to present the PKK as if they are very strong. Actually, the PKK has no structure to be intellectually strong. They are denying the Existence of God, they are denying the Book God sent. These are Darwinist materialist types. They have no significance.

1069

May God destroy all those who shot our soldiers, our police officers. May God destroy those who forgive the ones who martyred our soldiers and police officers. May God destroy those who are making preparations for that. May God make them deeply occupied with their own troubles.

1070

Alevis are very dear to us. Alevis think freely and sincerely. They are not jealous, they are not malicious, they are full of love. They are people of affection; people of heart. They are very dear to us.

1071

There were thousands of idols in the Meccan times. One should recognize the sufficiency of the Qur’an. If one claims that something has a place in religion not because God said so, but because a person said so, that would be a superstitious belief.

1072

Why do we love the Mahdi (pbuh)? We love the Mahdi(pbuh) for the good pleasure of God. We love him as the manifestation of God. Why do we love Jesus Messiah (pbuh)? We love him as the manifestation of God. Of course, it is not the bone and flesh that we love.

1073

One of the most important things to emphasize in the Southeast of our country is to protect and watch over our Ranger brothers. They should be given the status of police officers. They should be given permission to carry guns in the city. Their numbers should be increased.

1074

Lovelessness is terrifying. Love, on the other hand, is a very pleasant, joyous feeling. One would become ill without love, may God forbid, even die. It is not possible to live without love.

1075

There is darkness in the disputes of the ummah, not goodness. Muslims have to be united. All the verses of the Qur’an are about unity and solidarity.

1076

God is the One Who makes one a caliph. Caliphate is a profession of love, of affection: First and foremost he should love God and make the servant of God love Him as well. Caliphate is not possible without love.

1077

The main characteristic of ISIS is that they educate, persuade, give knowledge and employ techniques of persuasion and indoctrination. This is how ISIS is formed. One doesn’t say “I am joining ISIS” out of the blue. If you approach them with education, knowledge, love and affection the matter would all be solved. It doesn’t take more than one week for ISIS to persuade a person, you can unwind that person within a month.

1078

Treatise of Light is a very refreshing very beautiful work. Those who read the Treatise of Light from cover to cover really becomes very mature. They gain a very beautiful perspective towards the World, the incident and think highly of people.

1079

An attitude that attempts to drive a wedge between Shias and Sunnis should be strictly avoided. We should organize friendship dinner, friendship meetings. We should work off this dissension. But it is again the Mahdi who will do this.

1080

Weapons are reason why Abdullah Ocalan is shown “respect”. Once their weapons are lost no one would ever give consequence to Abduallah Ocalan. The weapons of the PKK are the reason behind the success of BDP in the Southeast of Turkey.

1081

The PKK will never lay down weapons. If they ever lay down weapons, they would evaporate; they would be diminished. The PKK is a force that survives with weapons. Without weapons no one would ever take them seriously or give consequence to them.

1082

The system of the Mahdi is not a project; it is a fact. It is not possible to take the system of the Mahdi out of destiny; it is something that is bound to happen.

1083

God creates an environment of terror and bloodshed, and creates incidents to make the system of the Mahdi be accepted. That is because if people do not accept something reasonable, God makes them accept it by force with His Name “Al-Jabbar”, “Al-Qahhar”. Violence and terror are the signs for the appearance for the system of the Mahdi. Mahdi (pbuh) is the one who will stop this terror and bloodshed.

1084

Gog and Magog will wreak havoc in the world in the End Times. Hazrat Mahid (pbuh), just like the Prophet Dhul’Qarnayn, will create a barrier and restore prosperity, security and peace in the world.

1085

The youngsters from ISIS are all in a state idolatry; they are on the wrong path. They are cruel, brutal and merciless but nevertheless they still are Muslims; they are ignorant, uninformed Muslims. We will educate them.

1086

All the youngsters from ISIS will soon pledge allegiance to the Mahdi (pbuh). Their coming has been foretold in the hadiths. Their activities are described in great detail. Their appearance, their attire, everything about them has been foretold. They cannot stop ISIS. As per their leaders, one of them will go and the other will follow.

1087

All snobs will be devastated; they will all be ashamed. They assume that the world can be governed with snobbery. God is the One Who governs the World. God will make humble, inoffensive, beautiful people rule the World. All snobs will lose face. The end of all snobs is a two-meter grave.

1088

God created the world for love. Love is the goal of Heaven and it is the goal of this world. God wants to be loved; God loves His servants and says, “My servants should love Me.” Some people are constantly focusing on hatred; they are listening to satan. They should listen to God instead.

1089

Emotionality is like a different religion, a different faith: That is because such a person struggles with his demons, keeps away from God, loses his trust in God. He would cry and become sad, he cannot set himself free from these scourges. Otherwise he would set his heart on God. For instance, something seemingly bad happens and he says “There is surely goodness in this.” Would someone like that deceiving himself? No, he would be speaking the truth. There really is goodness in everything.

1090

When emotionality and romanticism hits the steel shield of faith, they instantly fall down. The clarity, beauty and explicitness of rationalism would thus appear crystal clear.

1091

Without faith, one would lose all his enthusiasm and determination to live. One who acts with the love of God would be enthusiastic. Such a person would never go into depression or stress. Otherwise people are open to emotionality, romanticism, sadness and fear.

1092

What does releasing Abdullah Öcalan mean? It means the PKK has become a legal organization. It means the murders of the PKK are legal, may God forbid. They should give up that irrational idea. Such a move is unacceptable; we would never let that happen anyway. They should forget about it. They have that intention, but we would not let it happen. He is not going to be released.

1093

Releasing Abdullah Öcalan means turning the Middle East into a bloodbath. I mean, may God forbid, neither Turks, nor Kurds, or Circassians, or Laz or Europeans or Asians would be left behind, may God forbid. All the world would turn into Hell. They should not attempt to do that.

1094

In the communist way of thinking, ideas are paralyzed. People would not be able to think any other way; even if they think otherwise, they cannot express their ideas. Creativity would die out in such a way of thinking and no progress could be attained neither in physics, nor in chemistry, or in the arts or any other branch of science.

1095

Modern thought is a modern understanding of Islam. There is love, mercy, peace, well-being, beauty, decency, kindness, respect, reverence, quality, the most advanced technology, the most advance arts in Islam. There is respect for every idea, respect to everyone in Islam. That is great. In communism, anyone outside that opinion is killed, they are terrorized, hanged and chopped up.

1096

The Prophet Mohammed (saas) is the leader of the Kurdish people, not Abdullah Öcalan, who denies the existence of God and claim that he is a god. Abdullah Öcalan is a person who claims to be a deity. Our Kurdish brothers would not worship idols, they worship God.

1097

The intellectual background of the PKK is Darwinist and materialist. The invalidity of materialism, the invalidity of communism and the fallacy of Darwinism should be prepared as supplementary textbooks. We can prepare them, the state can publish them and distribute them to students free of charge. That is the way to solve this trouble.

1098

Ataturk started the preface of the spirit of the system of the Mahdi. God has given him that task. Without Ataturk, Mahdi (pbuh) wouldn’t have appeared. He laid the groundwork for it, facilitated it and erased bigotry. Mahdi (pbuh) appeared on that groundwork.

1099

The PKK is filthy and Kurds are radiant and immaculate people. Kurdish people are decent, noble and honorable; they are high quality and kind. The PKK on the other hand is debased; they are ignoble, characterless, treacherous and filthy.

1100

May God damn those who attempt to forgive the ones who martyred our soldiers and police officers! May God damn those who attempt to forgive those who martyred our soldiers and police officers! May God damn the ones who martyred our soldiers and police officers!

1101

The years 79, 89, 99, 2009 and 2019 are important. 2019 is the year of relief. Of course, it is also the year of troubles and excitement but that is the end. It is the surrendering date of the system of the Mahdi. The lifespan of the system of the Mahdi is 40 years.

1102

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.

1103

God directs history. He has servants in this world that are charged with leading history; there are secret servants. Those secret servants are led by God through revelation for the orientation of history.

1104

When trouble comes upon a person, he should not think that this would work against him. There certainly is goodness in everything: God gives such troubles to turn people towards Him.

1105

The CHP (Peoples’ Republican Party) should be powerful; they need to be in unity and solidarity. Respecting and trusting their leader is of crucial importance. The notion of a dispensable leader is not acceptable.

1106

Satan helps the radicals. They both hurt themselves and those around them. They both make themselves ugly, and those around them. They get dirty themselves and cause those around them to be dirty as well. In this way, the satan becomes the servant of the satan. That is very dangerous.

1107

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.

1108

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.

1109

The PKK is recruiting 99% of our youth by intimidation. There is a pileup system of intimidation: They are all afraid. They are all afraid of each other. The PKK is an empire of fear.

1110

The PKK is the world’s most despicable, most characterless, most treacherous mafia group. Abdullah Öcalan is the leading man of this organization. He has instigated murders, caused tens of thousands of our soldiers and police officers to be martyred.

1111

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.

1112

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.

1113

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”.

1114

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.

1115

Beauty belongs to God. How prone people are to forget God. God says, “...people are cruel and ignorant.” All beauty belongs to Him yet one still goes and gives their love, that beauty, to that man or that woman.

1116

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.

1117

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.

1118

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.

1119

We need to ally with everyone in order to bring peace; with Freemasons, with Templars, with Neocons, with the Council on Foreign Relations team, with anyone you could ever think of. That is because the way to reason is one way.

1120

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.

1121

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).

1122

We should have a Laz governor in Diyarbakır, a Circassian governor in Mardin, a Kurdish governor in Istanbul and in Ankara. Turkey would only be nice under these conditions. Otherwise Turkey would be disintegrated. Beware of that; it would drag us into lovelessness.

1123

ISIS would not leave the region for two or three years anyway. As a matter of fact, they wouldn’t leave the region until the appearance of the Mahdi (pbuh).

1124

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.

1125

Laying down their weapons means the end for the PKK. Had the PKK entered a democratic path, they would be wiped out. There is no PKK that gives a democratic struggle, it will be an immediate end for it. That is why they would never lay down their weapons.

1126

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.

1127

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.

1128

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.

1129

The US should submit to God and stop Darwinist-materialist education. They should assume an attitude against irreligiousness. America was very wealthy when they were religious; they became poorer once they quit their devotion to religion.

1130

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.

1131

Intellectuals, people of thought should be sent everywhere. Turkey and the US have amazing means to do that; they have radio, televisions, newspapers; we would conduct an amazing campaign of preaching the word if they gave those to our command. All coasts would be cleared in less than a month.

1132

There is an unpublished letter of Bediuzzaman Said Nursi. In that letter he writes, “Religious Christians overtake politics.” They overtake world politics. And he says, “Mahdi (pbuh) overtakes the mission of preaching the word.”

1133

Why do I love my Kurdish brothers? I love them because of their piety, because of their good morality. I would never love anyone because of their race. I would love them because of their piety. We are all the children of the Prophet Adam (pbuh); we are the sons of Adam.

1134

All Muslims are Islamic nationalists. I am not a race-based nationalist; Kurdish, Laz, Circassians are all the same for me. Superiority is in piety.

1135

The PKK sowed persecution and it is reaping persecution now. They sowed trouble and now they are reaping troubles. They are the ones who taught ISIS this violence, this cruelty. God inflicts troubles upon the PKK now.

1136

The US should learn to handle issues with love and compassion not with violence, airstrikes and bombs. Had the US followed the spirit of the Qur’an, the whole region would have felt great love to the US. You should approach people who believe in the Qur’an, with the Qur’an.

1137

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.

1138

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.

1139

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.

1140

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.

1141

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.

1142

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.

1143

We are against all movements that might attempt to overwhelm ISIS with blood; we would only wage a struggle intellectually with opinion. We would never open our airbases to killer planes. We would never open our airbases to planes that come to commit murder. They should forget about that.

1144

I do not accept changing an opinion by using force. I believe that the struggle against the PKK should always be intellectual. For instance, we are talking here; that is an intellectual struggle.

1145

We do not believe that anything can ever be solved with weapons, through bloodshed and weapons. We are against bloodshed, weapons, pain and suffering. We believe that humanity will weather the storms with love, with peace, brotherhood, with faith and with the Qur'an.

1146

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.

1147

There is defeat when there is no love. There is immorality when there is no love, there is death. Lovelessness brings about death, pain, suffering; it brings about exiguousness, inauspiciousness and nothing else.

1148

If you act like the Prophet Joseph (pbuh), God sends Zuleyha to you. Or else it is not possible to find anything by searching in deserts.

1149

The Prophet Solomon (pbuh) did not go after blessings, he ran away from them and they followed him. The Prophet Joseph (pbuh) ran away from blessings and blessings followed him. I have always run away from blessings all my life. God always sent blessings to my side. Alhamdulillah.

1150

There is no such thing as a "moderate Muslim." Muslims are those who abide by the Qur'an. Those who abide by the Qur'an are Muslims, if they don't, they don't. There are two different types of Muslims; those who abide by the Qur'an and those who don't. There is no such thing as a moderate Muslim.

1151

We are against weapons, we are against bloodshed. We are against bullets. We do not want the smell of blood, the smell of gunpowder. We want everywhere to smell like roses.

1152

They would not be able to cope with ISIS until the appearance of the Mahdi (pbuh). ISIS would never strike Turkey. There is no such knowledge in the hadiths. 1,400 years ago our Prophet (saas) foretold in great details that such an organization will appear in the End Times.

1153

God takes away love from the hearts of those who ascribe partners to Him. Their loved ones run away from them and they chase after them; however had they have given their love and their appreciation for beauty directly to God, had they prayed to God, God would grant them those blessings.

1154

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.

1155

We will not get in a war with ISIS. The Turkish soldiers should beware of getting into something like this. Air strikes, etc. We would never get involved with those. This is something that brings about a grave spiritual responsible. That would directly be religiously unlawful.

1156

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.

1157

Godless, Bookless, irreligious, faithless; the PKK lot is now a history. Just like the people of Nimrod, just like the people of Pharaoh buried in history, they too are history now.

1158

The 40 years' life span of the PKK is over. Consequently the lot of the PKK is being removed. Our Kurdish brothers will be glorious and exalted, they will be appreciated, they will live a happy and peaceful life.

1159

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.

1160

If you teach people persecution, they'd come up and apply persecution. You should teach people compassion, reason, methods of talking and persecution and scientific proofs. Above all else teach people love of God, fear of God.

1161

There is nothing left to call Kobani, as they know it. The region is under the control of ISIS. Those who sow persecution reap persecution. Those who sow wind, reap the whirlwind.

1162

Inoffensive people would never be defeated. The friends of God would definitely be victorious. The enemies of God would always be defeated.

1163

All our devout, reasonable Kurdish brothers should remain in their homes and avoid getting into any kind of commotion.

1164

The PKK is after dragging Turkey into a war. They want Turkey in this war no matter how so that their task will be easier. Turkey will not get into a war. We have no business with war. We have no business with Kobani either.

1165

We are now watching the death thrones of the system of the antichrist. The end of the PKK has come, it is finished. This is the reason for their floundering.

1166

The system of the antichrist is created as perished. This is the destiny of the system of the antichrist. It has not been created as sustainable. Its death and birth have been created together.

1167

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.

1168

Europe and the US used to trust the PKK a great deal. They were sure that the PKK would divide Turkey. But now they have no hope to divide Turkey; that is because God ruined the PKK.

1169

The PKK militants were ruined in Kobani. Eventually God brought their ruin from where they didn't expect. They failed to consider the Power of God. In the Qur'an, God says, "We will lead them, step by step, into destruction from where they do not know." (Surat Al-A'raf; 182)

1170

In the Turkish-Ottoman tradition, when the state is undermined, it becomes unpredictably ravening. The state might remain silent in the face of many things but when it comes to undermining the state, it becomes ravening. No one should dare even to imagine dividing, undermining the Turkish state.

1171

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.

1172

The 2070's are the last years of the world dominion. 2071 is an end, not a victory. 2023 is the peak point of victory. I mean it is the peak point of transition to perfection. The 2070's are the ending point.

1173

Our soldiers are very blessed. With all the steps they take, they bring plentitude where ever they go. They are the most honest, most merciful and most compassionate army in the world. They make tiny distinctions and refined analysis before taking a step.

1174

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.

1175

The name of the system that steps forward with ideas, with thoughts and with love is the system of the Mahdi. The name of the system that uses terror and violence is the system of the anti-christ.

1176

MIT (Turkey's National Intelligence Service ) is the strongest service in the region. There might be some forces against the MIT, they do writhe desperately, but if you pay attention you'll see that the Turkish state always ends up having the upper hand.

1177

The world is being designed according to the system of the Mahdi right now. When looked at carefully, it will be seen that the whole Middle East is being designed specifically for the system of the Mahdi. This is what lies at the root of all these wars, all these incidents.

1178

We have no business with ISIS. ISIS will be respectful towards the Turkish Army. They will not, and cannot act impertinently.

1179

We do not want any of the countries in the Middle East to be divided. The PKK will not be able to found an independent state in those lands; we won't allow it. They should forget about that.

1180

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. .

1181

When religion is set free, abundance comes to that country. This is the sole reason behind the plentitude in US; the fact that religion is free there. When religion is set free in Turkey, Turkey will be radiant and plentitude will come upon Turkey as well.
