When a believer thoroughly masters love, God takes them into His heaven. Love does not occur out of nowhere; love develops through suffering, agony and training.

2

All the songs are about crying because faithfulness or fidelity is lost. What does religion ensure? It ensures fidelity, faithfulness and patience.

3

The palaces, the rivers, the fruits of Heaven; none of them would have a meaning if it weren't for love, for passion. And to achieve true love, we have to go through training, through suffering.

4

God wants to be loved. Because without love, Heaven would lose its meaning. The universe would lose its meaning; everything would lose its meaning. They all find meaning in love and passion.

5

God wants us to love Him sincerely and honestly and this is possible only through trial. By going through trial, we witness our love towards God as well.

6

"Do not spy" (Surah al-Hujurat, 12) This verse is aimed at hypocrites who carry information about Muslims. This is the commandment of God in the Qur'an against those cowards who try to raise difficulties for Muslims by informing on them.

7

The verse of the Quran saying "do not inquire pryingly" means do not spy on others. Inquire here refers to spying. In other words, God says "Do not gather intelligence about Muslims and provide it to others; do not resort to indecency and cruelty."

8

Satan wants to drown people in details in order to alienate them from prayer. Bigots complicate prayer by listing thousands of things that will render the prayer invalid; however, performing prayer is quite easy. That is why God did not go into detail in the Qur'an regarding prayer; He only mentions ruqu [bowing down], sujud [prostration] and qiyam [standing up]. Perform your prayer and leave: That is it.

9

Where there are women, no quarrels, no tensions exist; only kindness. And usually there is rudeness where there are no women. People assume a polite attitude in the company of women, even if there is a single woman [present]. Women bring politeness, kindness wherever they go.

10

People who [figuratively] step into the living cell feel as if they've just stepped into the city of Istanbul. It is that extensive. You could realize the existence of God from even a single cell.

11

Stalinism cannot exist without a state. A proletarian dictatorship is an indispensable characteristic of Stalinism. No one would adopt the Stalinist mentality otherwise. In other words, it would be pointless to become a communist. Why do people establish parties? In order to constitute a state.

12

They aim for a benumbed, insentient youth instead of an energetic, vigorous one. Through the traditionalist Orthodox Islamic mentality, they want people’s brains and souls to decay; they are corrupting their nature and trying to turn them into misogynists. They are destroying the [idea of] feminine beauty. And this is how they sneakily devastated the Middle East. People should not fall in to this trap.

13

One of the evil methods employed in the plan to devastate the Middle East is to eliminate the power of the mind by corrupting human nature and benumbing the mind through the traditionalist Orthodox Islamic conception. The minds of people are being ruined, are decaying, so to speak; the souls, the minds of people are decaying and you witness the misery and desolation this leads to.

14

The traditionalist Orthodox Islamic conception removes people’s vitality and paralyzes their minds. Societies that suffer constant oppression emerge as a result of this.

15

God says, "No one despairs of solace from God except for people who are disbelievers." It is quite abnormal to lose hope that people will become better. Advising such people and putting them on the right path is what should be strived for.

16

A mentality that is devoid of productivity, technology, creativity, art and aesthetics, that is only consuming and freeloading is spreading like wildfire among some teenagers. Measures should be taken against this by introducing a class on national consciousness in schools.

17

Teenagers waste their times on pointless TV programs. This is a dangerous culture that numbs their minds. The new generation should be raised being deeply aware of our national values and culture.

18

We should popularize love. For one thing, if teachers talk about love to their students in schools, it will cheer children up. If class teachers say to their students, "Children, love each other, become friends, and become brothers. Love is very beautiful. The whole of humanity needs love", children will not forget that for the rest of their lives. We ask for all the teachers to do this. We ask that all around Turkey, that they talk about just one word: love.

19

According to the hadiths, Jesus Messiah (pbuh) and the Mahdi (as) will meet each other at a prayer time. Jesus Messiah will say to the Mahdi, "You be the imam [leader], you make us perform the prayer", and from that moment on ,the Mahdi will be the leader of the whole world.

20

The idea that Christians regard the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) as God –God is surely beyond that- is alienating many Christian youth from religion. They should abolish this superstitious belief. If they say that "Jesus Messiah is the prophet of God", the whole world would become Christians but it is wrong to say "Jesus is God." This is the reason why a substantial part of the European population became disbelievers.

21

Being an atheist means being honest. They bravely, honestly say, "I do not believe in God, I do not believe in religion. If there is a person who can convince me otherwise, let's talk as if I will believe I want it to be sincere." But dishonesty, hypocrisy is horrible.

22

In this world the trial we are living is a seemingly one; actually, in the esoteric sense, we are being educated, this world is a course. Because God already knows what we will do. He is the One Who created us. In other words, God knows what we will do since eternally before. We have already been here and done that. The point of this trial is to train us, to show us our true selves. God makes us face our true selves. In other words, He makes us love ourselves. He is preparing us for the afterlife.

23

It is quite natural for a Muslim to make a mistake. People should not be afraid of making mistakes. Even if it is a big mistake, it can be solved by giving advice. But reacting angrily to advice is not normal. You could say, "Okay, I will consider this. May God bless you. I will try my best." That's it. But angry overreaction to advice is abnormal behavior.

24

Of course, a believer should be open to advice. A Muslim might make a mistake, there is nothing wrong with this but he should always pay heed to advice of others: In other words, a Muslim shouldn't be arrogant, disrespectful and snobbish, right? Even though he won't follow the advice, he should politely listen to it within the limits of the Qur'an and say, "I will try hard to do so."

25

Some people suspect others of being hypocrites. Let's assume that they are hypocrites; then educate them, communicate with them, talk to them through the verses of the Qur'an, be patient with them, right? Otherwise, people would not want to talk to each other, no Muslim would want to see or speak to another Muslim. If you start accusing people of being hypocrites, disbelievers or sick, there will be no one left to talk to.

26

There is a guardianship system among believers. No believer has the authority to expel a person from among the believers by accusing someone of being a hypocrite. This can only be done through a revelation from God.

27

People occasionally ask me, "One of our friends is a hypocrites; what should we do?" How are you so sure? Maybe the person who you believe to be a hypocrite will go to Heaven and you will go to Hell. Did you split his chest open and looked at his heart? Even the prophets cannot make such a judgment, so how can you? They make such judgments only based on revelations. Even when people act openly in displaying their hypocrisy, the prophets try to put them on the right path rather than expelling them.

28

But if you try to win atheists, disbelievers, those against Islam over, then you should try even harder to win over the Muslims who have a sickness in their hearts and weaker faiths. You can easily commune with such people as they are already among you. No matter how abnormal they may behave, how ill-tempered they are, the merit, the reward of trying to win such people over are greater.

29

As long as a person says "There is no god but Allah Muhammad is His Messenger", you cannot exclude him from the guardianship system. You cannot say things such as "Begone; go away to the disbelievers." Saying so is unlawful. On one hand you are trying to win people over to the cause of Islam, but on the other hand, you are trying to expel people from it. If you are going to expel people, then why are you trying to win disbelievers over?

30

Believers are obliged to protect and watch over each other. The Qur'an introduces a guardianship system. A believer should protect other believers like they are his own brothers and sisters.

31

Occasionally, the hypocrites display positive behavior. This is a tell-tale sign of the beginning of a new attack. For example, they treat everyone well and speak nicely, but this only lays the groundwork for a serious attack. In other words, this behavior is the beginning of an attack plan satan has granted them, impregnated them with. In other words, it is usually doubtful for a hypocrite to be cured of his hypocrisy; he will surely attempt something, try to initiate a new attack.

32

Hypocrites generally try to avoid Muslims. The reason they do this is that if someone attacks Muslims, they might get arrested, blacklisted, beaten, or insulted and they do not want their reputations to be damaged.

33

Hypocrites always aim for being the closest to the Muslim’s leader, or the prophet. This is the position hypocrites desire the most to reach, because in that position their attacks, their strikes, will be the most effective. They regard this position as vital as it is the focal point to hinder the activities of the Muslims and provide intelligence to their satanic masters.

34

Hypocrites are incorrigible maniacs whose fierceness knows no bounds. The grudges and hatreds of the hypocrites know no end as they can never calm down. In other words, they are typical maniacs. Just like a tuberculosis patient, their insanity regresses when they are given effective antibiotics, but when the dose of the drug is reduced, even a little bit, they will proceed to attack immediately. And sometimes the hypocrisy virus develops immunity to the drug and is unaffected and it tries to get ahold of the body.

35

Hypocrites do not know what love is. They only use love as a means, as a tool. It is a means for the hypocrites to attack, to behave immorally and viciously towards Muslims. In other words, the hypocrites exploit love to disturb Muslims, to carry out vile deeds against them. They say, "I visited out of love", or, "I spoke out of love", or, "I do this out of love."

36

Hypocrites use a very treacherous and evil method when they attack. They make Muslims look like unjust, oppressive, witless people and make themselves look like cautious, wise and conscientious people who are on the right path.

37

Be it a prophet or a leader of Muslims, hypocrites focus on whoever is the center of power and influence among Muslims. Satan grants them an undivided focus. Hypocrites attack that person with all their attention.

38

In the Qur'an, hypocrites do not target all Muslims. This is very important. Prophet, Imam, or whoever is the leader of Muslims at the time; hypocrites become obsessed with that person and target whoever they believe to be the most influential. In other words, that person becomes their greatest enemy, their biggest target and then the hypocrites become obsessed with the people the prophet or whoever is the leader in that era trusts the most.

39

Being sincere is a pleasant feeling. It is quite therapeutic for the body. Sincerity makes people feel relieved. Insincerity causes stress; in other words it causes the mind to become atrophied, exasperated. People feel at ease when they are sincere.

40

Hypocrites believe that they talk accurately, eloquently and beneficially. In other words, they believe that they always speak properly. However, they leave those who listen to them astounded. In other words, people are baffled by their instability. But hypocrites do not realize this. For example, they cannot see how witless they are. In other words, they cannot realize that they are mentally instable.

41

In order for a pious, religious generation to be raised, first of all the invalidity of Darwinism must be explained scientifically. It is impossible to get religion across through a dialectic philosophy.

42

The reason teens grow up to be short tempered is the Darwinist education system. People who go through a Darwinist, materialist education become loveless. It is religious ethics that provides the sense of love.

43

Hypocrites have an instinct to constantly travel. They use tediousness as an excuse to do so: For example, they use their businesses or their families as an excuse and wander around. Hypocrites can never achieve peace of mind; they carry around their troubles, discomfort on their shoulders everywhere they go. They run from their troubles, and their troubles trail behind them.

44

Hypocrites assume themselves clever for staying away from Muslims, and think that Muslims cannot see through their foolish ploys. They think Muslims and God will approve of such behavior. They are under the assumption that they can deceive Muslims, as well as God [God is surely beyond that].

45

In every era, even in the era of the prophets, there were people that were "wimps", so to speak. These people would abstain from being near to the prophets since they were afraid of going out, afraid of their families, their fathers, their mothers, afraid of losing their jobs, their education and their education. They would stay in touch as minimum as possible and actually stay away, keeping their distance and visiting every now and then. The reason for their occasional visits was that they believed they could deceive God in the afterlife, [God is beyond that ].

46

When the hypocrites speak, they sound erratic as if they are drunk. But in their own madness, it is impossible for them to realize this. They possess a schizophrenic mentality. They have schizoid personalities as they talk maniacally and erratically, but they are not aware of this.

47

What the hypocrites really seek is to become God, to become superior to God. This is the actual ambition that drives the hypocrites. Therefore, they deem all Muslims witless while regarding themselves as clever and eloquent.

48

When bothersome hypocrites realize that they are suspected of their true intentions, they cease their activities for a while but the moment attention is off them, they will return to their foul ways, their vile activities. They will start to bother Muslims, resort to villainy again and do everything in their power to disturb Muslims once more.

49

Seditious hypocrites take a break when their attempts at sedition are noticed but they then wait for the moment when Muslims become distracted. Thereafter, they proceed to attack once again. In other words, the hypocrites lie in wait for the atmosphere and the conditions to settle down.

50

Hypocrites are like a new strain of tuberculosis virus. They should constantly be treated with antibiotics. Otherwise the hypocrisy constantly attacks the body to take over. It is like an incurable tuberculosis virus. So it should be kept under control through high-dosage antibiotics.

51

When hypocrites realize that they've been caught, they partially get better. But when attention is off them, the hypocrites go astray again. They return to their harmful and bothersome activities towards Muslims.

52

Hypocrites have sharp minds, but at the same time, they are foolish to the extent of madness. They are quite witless. For example, when they openly do something, they think that it won't be noticed. They tell lies and think that their lies will go unnoticed. Hypocrites pursue an insane ostrich-like policy; they bury their heads in the sand and believe that they are well-hidden.

53

Hypocrites believe that in time, the order God has established will collapse. So they deem Muslims weak. Just as Muslims believe that Islam will prevail, hypocrites believe that the disbelievers will prevail. They believe that the party of satan will prevail. For that reason, they never trust in Muslims and Islam.

54

Hypocrites find an honest, Muslim way of life to be boring and abnormal. They love to lead troublesome, dangerous lives. Therefore, they always seek friendship and fondness among the disbelievers. They always curry favor with disbelievers. Knowing one day the hypocrites will join them, they secretly lay the way open by ingratiating themselves into the disbeliever's favor.

55

Hypocrites love adventure, foulness, danger, and risky businesses as they are quite adventurous. Adventure is virtually indispensable for them. For example, they travel to many countries, run away from one place and get caught in another. Hypocrites spend their whole lives in foulness.

56

Hypocrites prefer a filthy life to a clean one. For example, avoiding taking daily showers, smoking weed, committing vile and immoral deeds, hanging around in cesspools, having close relations with disbelievers and experiencing such foulness is what hypocrites always have in mind. And they wish to be superior, and run the world without lifting a finger; that is their egocentricity and arrogance. They seek to stay in touch with a bad lot, and undertake dangerous ventures.

57

Hypocrites always say they are on the side of the Messenger [of God]. But in reality, they always prepare for their lives among the disbelievers. They always have the disbelievers in their minds. They contemplate on how their lives among the disbelievers will be.

58

Hypocrites constantly conspire against Muslims in secret. Otherwise, they cannot find rest. Their lives only find meaning when they hatch a plot.

59

The presumed Islamic commandments such as 'women are evil, they shouldn't wear nice clothes, they shouldn't be allowed to go out' are [nothing but] the products of bigotry and they have no place in Islam.

60

It does not abase a young girl when she is raped. She is still dignified in our eyes. No harm is done to her honor. Those who commit this perverse deed are dishonorable, dishonest, devious people, but no harm is done to the dignity of the young girl.

61

When a believer meets Islam, he renounces everything he learned from the disbelievers. But a hypocrite preserves everything he learned from the disbelievers, he never cuts them loose.

62

A characteristic of the hypocrites is that they cannot leave their personalities they used to have before knowing religion behind. They continue with the exact same personality they had in their childhoods, in their teenage years. They are aggressive, gruff, disrespectful, tactless, just as they were before; they do not mold their personalities in accordance with the Qur'an.

63

Insidiousness and secrecy are significant weapons of the hypocrites. They strike secretly, sneakily but a mind that can deal with them is a marvelous, advanced mind. An average mind cannot deal with the hypocrites. A higher level of wisdom and faith is required to be able to do so.

64

Hypocrites help believers sharpen their minds; otherwise, believers would become lethargic. Pointless thoughts would then begin to occupy the mind of believers. Sharp vigilance and clarity of thought is achieved by the occasion of the hypocrites.

65

The Islamic community has been devastated but the traditional orthodox section does not realize this. They believe they will come out of this situation by being even more bigoted, by improving the system that caused this mess in the first place. They want to wrap themselves up in an even more traditionalist orthodoxy, an even more terrifying mentality.

66

There is a world of difference between the religion described in the Qur'an and the system the bigots promote. The Islamic community should turn to essence of the Qur'an urgently.

67

Wealth alone does not make a person happy, it leads to distress. Even a person living in a palace commits suicide, may God forbid: A person can only find true happiness through faith.

68

How nice it is that every sincere believer with a sharp mind, an open conscience [that is aware of the existence of God] will go to Heaven. And how long will they stay in there? For eternity.

69

Muslims do not get offended with each other. The heart of a Muslim is always together with God. The world is a short, temporary course, a place of education; this is no place to make a name for oneself, to claim to be superior, to claim to be intelligent and so forth. When observed from outer space, the world looks like a speck of dust. Go further and you cannot even see it anymore. Mankind is only a particle within the speck of dust. A pitiful creature indeed. So from where comes this arrogance? We will soon be dead and gone.

70

The system of Mahdi is a system where the Mahdi fights bravely against the foolish struggles of satan and his team on his own and destroys them. The Mahdi will enter into a battle of minds against the demons and hypocrites of the system of antichrist. They will all get crushed like an insect under the wisdom and intelligence of the Mahdi. The system of Mahdi is the triumph of a man’s wisdom over the cunning wit of satan.

71

Impiety [disbelief] is a grave threat. But the threat posed by disbelief is nothing compared to the threat posed by hypocrisy.

72

Without the fear of God, love cannot exist, social ethics cannot exist, life cannot exist. The fear of God is the greatest of all blessings, because behind it lies all beauty.

73

Behind everything that is beautiful lies the fear of God. In the absence of the fear of God emerges an entirely different system, one in which people will find no happiness.

74

Being raped does no harm to the dignity and honor of women in any way: Those who do the deed are the ones who are dishonorable.

75

We did not come into this world to live [as we like], we came to submit ourselves to God, to gain God's approval.

76

The hypocrite enjoys uttering diabolical words; furthermore, he talks to others cryptically and in an unclear fashion. He also chooses vague and incoherent words in his statements and they have a secret language specific to themselves, just like Morse code.

77

The hypocrite is noncommittal when he talks. He does not show his true colors. He does not give away his side. In other words, he chooses his words in favor of himself. He is very despicable. For instance, there is a verse about a hypocrite, reluctant to fight against disbelievers, who tells our Prophet (obuh), "If I knew how to fight, I would join you." If our Prophet had driven him to the battle and he had been injured by an arrow or a sword, he would blame the Prophet, saying that, "I already told you that I do not know how to fight; see, I got injured." The hypocrite is despicable enough to say that.

78

It is of critical importance to establish a Ministry of Arts and Quality since all of those countries without any dominant sense of art and aesthetics are to be destroyed. History proves that all such countries were demolished. Any such countries that do not appreciate women and value quality are being razed to the ground.

79

A Muslim refrains from sedition, conflict or disturbing other Muslims. However, a hypocrite does not; he is very shameless, always willing to create a scandal. He is a very malicious creature.

80

The Qur'an, so to say, burns the hypocrite and the hypocrite strongly keeps away from the Qur'an. Since the verses in the Qur'an provide an explanation which invalidates his system, he detests the Qur'an.

81

The hypocrite is like a virus lying in ambush. He resurfaces and overwhelms in an appropriate environment like a tuberculosis virus. When satan asks him to hide, he hides; and when he asks him to appear, he reappears. He does not give up being a hypocrite.

82

Love is a deep passion. The unimaginable, indescribable and mysterious power reflecting from one's eyes to his or her beloved one and from them to your eyes is called love. It is not about touching or cuddling; love is all about deep passion

83

The majority of our youth are not equipped or informed enough to fight against Darwinist, Marxist, Leninist, Stalinist philosophies. The elimination of education based on Darwinism in Turkey would deliver a major blow to the PKK. The inclusion of a course teaching "national consciousness" in the curriculum would enable the youth to understand the falsehood of Marxist and Leninist philosophies.

84

The PKK trains thousands of people day and night, persuading them to adopt a Marxist philosophy. What we should do is to talk about the falsehood of the Marxist, Leninist and Stalinist philosophies through education, and to teach our young people how to respond when they come across such ideological expressions.

85

Sorrow is another name for rebellion against God: It is unlawful. Sorrow means being dissatisfied with what is given by God. Being upset about what God has done and protesting against it is called sorrow. A man cries only if he is not satisfied with the fate God deemed him worthy of; he grieves, he resents it and he becomes upset.

86

Mourning is unlawful according to religion, it is an ancient pagan custom. As the ancient Sumerians, ancient Egyptians, Persians, Hittites did not believe in the afterlife, in martyrdom, they considered death as a disaster. They would cry as to rebel against God. Us Muslims regard martyrdom as [achieving] an honorable rank.

87

God creates major incidents so that people wake from their dream-states but a lot of people disregard this fact. They talk about a bomb exploding right next to them as if it is a magazine subject. We see it in the hadiths of Our Prophet (pbuh) that these incidents will continue until the all of humanity wakes up from their deep slumber.

88

Establishing a Ministry of Quality and Art is of the utmost importance; a product has no value if it has no artistic or high quality attributes. Both art and quality should be encouraged.

89

Nobody can stand against the system of Mahdi despite that there only a small group of people working for it and a large group of people, primarily involving the shadow states, the bigots, the polytheists, the hypocrites, opposing it. This is a miraculous aspect of the system of Mahdi. The Mahdi and his followers are invincible; they are not destined to be defeated.

90

What hypocrites despise the most is having to live all their lives among Muslims. They live in agony as they cannot dwell in blasphemy with ease and they have to pretend to be a Muslim among Muslims.

91

Hypocrites constantly try to irritate Muslims in a sneaky, under-handed manner. They mostly exhaust themselves and nourish believers by doing so. God established a system that works to the contrary of what the hypocrites try to achieve.

92

On account of their trust in God, Muslims are joyful in their lives. They are joyous when they are struggling for the sake of God or when they are martyred. They never lose their inner sense of happiness, joyfulness. However, those who are faint of faith becomes paralyzed; they feel at a loss, they panic, they cry and lead their lives in a state of unhappiness and fear.

93

Under no circumstances do hypocrites have any desire to serve for the benefit of Islam. They latch onto and feed on Muslims like a bloodsucking parasite, like a tick; they continue their lives as bloodsuckers. Hypocrites only make small efforts as a mere formality, just enough to deceive Muslims but in general, their efforts are idle and pointless.

94

Hypocrites exploit the comfort Muslims provide to the full extent but they never contribute to anything that would benefit Muslims; they do not lift a finger in this regard. They do not want to support Muslims in any way. They conscientiously avoid making any effort or being helpful.

95

It is in the hypocrites’ nature to lie in wait for believers and ambush them. They sit and contemplate all day as to what vile, indecent acts they can commit against Muslims. They deal in such villainy instead of catching a break and leading peaceful lives praying to God.

96

Occasionally, believers might show signs of hypocrisy as well. Believers are able to abandon such behavior, but hypocrites cannot. They cannot abandon their perpetually deceptive methods.

97

Hypocrites go into coma upon hearing the signs of hypocrisy when they are among believers but they survive all the same. They survive in a comatose state. For example, their hearts beat only once every 20 seconds, or they breathe once per minute but they do not die. They continue their lives in such state. But when they get a reasonable opportunity, their breathing, their heartbeat becomes more frequent as they seize it.

98

As hypocrites do not set their hearts on God, they are concerned with everything except God. They specifically keep away from God. They do everything in their capacity to forget about God. This is the reason behind their meaningless banter for hours on end. They carry out such a practice to forget about God, to become numbed.

99

Believers might show a few or even many signs of hypocrisy; for example, even fear is a sign of hypocrisy because hypocrites are cowards. Believers should overcome these signs through sheer willpower.

100

Hypocrites will never give up their hypocritical ways because hypocrites are mentally ill. They are unstable creatures. They do not display the characteristic of a reasonable person. But they can be pacified.

101

Talking about 1,400 years ago will have no effect on the hypocrites [of today]. It is really important to interpret the hypocrites within the confines of our century. It is important to define them through the verses of the Qur'an. Only then will hypocrites have no place to hide, only then will they be backed into a corner.

102

People do not acknowledge the importance of the system of Mahdi. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is the one to stop the Day of Judgment. If not, the Day of Judgment would be pounding on the door. The world has already deserved the Day of Judgment since the entire world under the philosophy of Darwinism denies God. All of the nations, including Turkey, overwhelmingly give a Darwinist education.

103

The US and Russia pretend not to understand the position of the YPG. The YPG is a pack of coyotes including thieves and usurpers, dishonest and perverted people, and assassins in the region. They are allegedly the only power fighting against the ISIS and al-Nusra whereas in fact, they are scared to death of the ISIS and Nusra. They have not clashed with the ISIS in an open field in any way; they always make progress depending on air support.

104

Who would want to die in bed? Martyrdom (Shahada) and dying while struggling for the cause of God is the best way to die.

105

Hazrat Khidr sometimes looks like a young person and sometimes like an elderly person; he has a grey or dun-colored horse. He is sometimes recognized while moving from the spirit to the material realm.

106

The true hypocrite is a psychopath. He always holds his ground. He does not give up no matter what you do. He may fidget and squirm but he does not give up since he is of an evil nature. On the other hand, the believer may sometimes have the behaviour of a hypocrite. He can be a normal Muslim again when he gives up.

107

Just as we will be held accountable for our wealth and property in the afterlife, most importantly we will be accountable for what we did with our time on Earth. God will ask us all, "How did you spend your time?" Believers should always keep this fact in mind.

108

Hypocrites should be monitored closely all their lives. Hypocrites are psychopaths; they are schizophrenic. Treating such creatures are futile. They certainly tend to commit foul deeds. Like snakes, they slither and constantly seek to do villainy.

109

Disbelievers does not like hypocrites if hypocrites admire Muslims. Thus, hypocrites pretend that they admire disbelievers so as to be admired by them in return. They talk about how much they liked the books, the articles of the disbelievers. It is almost impossible to see the hypocrites praise any article written by Muslims. Their only concern is disbelievers. But as hypocrites are dishonorable people, they are never ashamed of this and do so openly.

110

It is essential for hypocrites to carry out their vile activities at night. Malice and cunningness fully descend upon them, and the mark of hypocrisy on their faces become more prominent, more vile as they commit their dishonorable deeds.

111

The British shadow state is quite arrogant and egocentric. As hypocrites have an inferiority complex, they admire this arrogance, egocentricity and grandeur. Hypocrites regard the egocentricity of the British shadow state as that of an elephant's and admire it, whereas they regard theirs as that of an insect's. Thus, they hold the shadow state in high regard and is extremely respectful of it. They hold disbelievers, heretics and oppressors in high esteem.

112

The head hypocrite of the Prophet Moses’ (pbuh) era, the Samiri, lived and died in loneliness. No hypocrite dies in a happy, contented manner. They always die miserably, in a corner, in the foulest of ways.

113

Intelligence means money for hypocrites. Hypocrites are treacherous people that live on selling information regarding Muslims.

114

Hypocrites gather foul things: In other words, they do not seek anything regarding the faith or the Qur'an. They go after anything that is snobbish, sneaky, anything that will help them make a name for themselves among the disbelievers, anything that will help them prove themselves to other hypocrites. They prioritize their own promotion by doing so

115

The most distinguishing characteristic of hypocrites is their desire to stand out. They want to attribute any achievement to themselves, not to the Prophet (pbuh). Or they don't want to attribute success to Muslims’ leader of that era, they only arrogate it to themselves. They are only after their own glory and reputation.

116

Hypocrites are foolish in every aspect but when they are possessed by satan, their evil souls emerge. For example, if they get in touch with people outside the Muslim community, they begin to write, talk and commit foul deeds in a swift manner. They excel at hiding themselves. But they achieve all these things with the help of the wisdom they obtain from satan. Otherwise, they are like planks of wood in every way.

117

Believers make a name for themselves through God, through their faith, Islam, and the Qur'an. Hypocrites try to make a name for themselves through idle actions. They do not realize they are debasing themselves with unworthy actions and continue to do so.

118

Connections are really important for a hypocrite. Thus, they constantly try to make friends out of disbelievers, tricksters and foul people. They believe, on the off chance of them becoming lonely in the future, that these people will provide them with employment and food.

119

Hypocrites spend all their lives in manipulation, deception, secrecy, sedition and villainy; they know no rest. But they consider their villainy, their struggle, to be what life is all about, as if this is something they must go through in life. They never settle for an honest, normal life.

120

Hypocrites always try to stand out around others. They try to patronize others. They are know-it-alls who want to win at everything. They always want to be right. Their behavior can be considered maniacal, in a sense.

121

Hypocrites despise Muslims as they consider themselves superior. They consider themselves wise and intelligent. They think of themselves as "magnificent" creatures that are way ahead of Muslims. However, Almighty God does not agree with them in this regard. So, as the hypocrites are weak-minded, they are not aware of it and ultimately become disgraceful.

122

The hypocrite is a devil who tries to destroy Muslims from within by joining them. It is the most foul, most treacherous specimen of humanity and it is not possible to contend with hypocrites with an average level of intelligence. They can only be contended with through the guidance of the prophets and the depth of authority. Otherwise, hypocrites are clever and merciless. They have incredible means and are quite diabolical.

123

Suffering is a necessity for achieving the love of God. Satan must exist in order for suffering to exist. And satan usually engages hypocrites and disbelievers for its deeds.

124

There are gardens, orchards, fruits and rivers in Heaven. Heaven has everything you could ask for. But without love, these would mean nothing to humans or God. Heaven is beautiful only with love.

125

God wants sincere love, to be loved sincerely, to be loved with passion. Otherwise, the universe would be meaningless for God. In other words, God is only satisfied with sincere love.

126

How can something be considered right if the opposite of it does not exist? How will we be tried if satan and the lower-self do not exist? How can we recognize what is beautiful, what is right? It is impossible. It is impossible to achieve any higher love, any higher wisdom in this way. Then we would be no different than a child, we would not be able to develop.

127

God wants to be loved sincerely. Suffering and satan must exist for real love and compassion to be achieved.

128

The British shadow state regards 90% of the world's population as primitive and lesser races that should be destroyed. All these nations targeted by the British shadow state should come together and dispose of this cruel philosophy through love, knowledge and science.

129

The British shadow state believes all the Turkic states, the Arabic states, the African races, the Japanese and the Chinese should be completely eliminated as they consider them to be primitive. This is why all these oppressed nations should come together and stand against the British shadow state that is intent on destroying them.

130

According to the principles of Darwinism, they say, "The Turkish race is an intermediate form between humans and monkeys but the European race is a fully developed human race. For this reason, the Turkish Nation should be annihilated." This is what Darwin believed in, what the British shadow state believes in, what all of them believe in. Our nation should see through this deception.

131

The ultimate goal of the PKK/PYD is to found a communist Kurdistan state within Turkey and establish a proletarian dictatorship, thereby separating Turkey.

132

Western countries were paying no mind to ISIS. But the minute ISIS attacked the PKK, Europe and the USA went mad over it. They were scared to death that ISIS would destroy the PKK. The shadow states of the world were horrified. This is the only issue. In other words, ISIS' only misdeed was to attack the PKK. ISIS have no other fault in their eyes.

133

Hypocrites communicate with disbelievers, but believers do not know about this. They exchange information with disbelievers, but believers are not aware of this. They use cryptic texts disguised as a poem or a prose, but believers cannot comprehend it. All of these actions lead the hypocrites to have a delusion of superiority. We should decipher it, break their codes; they are neutralized when their codes are deciphered.

134

Hypocrites are not aware of the fact that God is watching them. They are satisfied when other people are not aware of their hypocrisy. So, the remedy to hypocrisy is to describe their whole psychology, their mental state, in explicit detail.

135

Turkey should become a modern, high quality country as soon as possible. You know how modern the villages and towns of Norway, Sweden and Denmark are, right? We should achieve a much higher level of civilization than these countries ever did.

136

Hypocrites feel as if their souls burn and suffer when they feel they are becoming more like Muslims. Thus, they try to inspire their evil natures by committing indecent, treacherous deeds, by keeping in touch with disbelievers, or by hatching insidious plots against Muslims.

137

Hypocrites find comfort in tapping into their evil sides. They feel obliged to commit vile, secret, dishonest deeds, to hatch sinister plots; their souls can find no rest otherwise.

138

Hypocrites are impudent and dishonest people. No matter how often you warn them to be honest, to be transparent, they will only adhere to their villainous ways. They will continue their secret activities. It is a manic illness that afflicts the hypocrites.

139

We are a modern, high quality nation of the Middle East. Those who attempt to destroy us would be attempting to destroy the world and this is impossible, by the will of God.

140

The YPG is a communist, Stalinist, godless and atheist organization. Kurdish people are different as they are dignified; they fear God and they love God. The noble people of high moral standing are called Kurds. On the other hand, the YPG is simply an alias for the PKK.

141

Strengthening local governance merely plays into the hands of the PKK. What happens when you extend the jurisdiction of the municipalities? Some of them become the fortresses of the PKK: It does not provide you any benefit other than that. That is what they seek.

142

Fiercely defending one's own desires is a mental illness. One should get a grip on himself in this situation and take refuge in God. He should ask himself, "How did I turn into such an abnormal person?" He should listen to what others have to say in a reasonable manner. A Muslim is open to 'al-amr bi-l-maʿrūf wa-n-nahy ʿani-l-munkar' (enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong). Therefore, he becomes wiser with ease.

143

Those who have a sickness in their hearts are proud, egocentric and arrogant. They regard the sense of superiority as a precious form of worship. However, they are not aware of the fact that they are doing it under the influence of satan. They cannot realize their evil actions.

144

Satan specifically identifies and attacks those people with sickness in their hearts. Should these people forsake God, then they are unaware of this. The influence of satan envelops them like a layer of iron and satan will never release his hold on them again. He has a strong grip on their souls.

145

Hypocrites profess to be superior in this world. They become spoiled and go astray; however in the afterlife, in the Presence of God, they will have no strength left in them to act like a snob, a know-it-all, a pseudo-intellectual, a sneak.

146

Occasionally, Muslims with a sickness in their hearts might act like a hypocrite. They are not hypocrites per se, but they have a sickness in their hearts; God informs us of this in a verse of the Qur'an, saying, "They have sickness in their hearts." They act in the exact manner of a hypocrite. This is a phase they are going through. Sometimes they recover from it, and sometimes they succumb to the disease that is hypocrisy.

147

Secrecy is the primary weapon of a hypocrite. His primary weapon becomes neutralized if his characteristics and his activities can be exposed.

148

The more our Prophet (pbuh) suffered ordeals, the more beautiful he became. Suffering turned the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) into the most beautiful person in the world; he led a life full of anguish yet he was exceptionally beautiful. The Prophet Moses (pbuh) suffered throughout his life but he was incredibly handsome, the most handsome man of his tribe.

149

Hypocrites deem general culture important, wish to learn about everything and hate religion. The only thing that irritates them is religion, Islam.

150

In the era of Our Prophet (pbuh), the then- hypocrites pretended to be wiser than Our Prophet; as they believed themselves to be supposedly wiser, they talked in a patronizing manner. Hypocrites are insolent and disrespectful.

151

Our Prophet (pbuh) says in the hadith, "Most of the hypocrites in my community are from among well-educated people." Knowledge leads them astray and into a desire to be apart from Muslims. Feeling a sense of superiority, hypocrites seek to abandon Muslims, thinking, "I am wiser and smarter."

152

The hypocrite has an innate desire to leave. In his book 'Ihya' ulum al-din', Imam al-Ghazzali states, "The hypocrite inside a mosque is like a bird inside a cage. When the door of the cage is opened, the bird flies away."

153

Muslims look forward to the hypocrite leaving them in peace but as soon as he leaves, another one comes along. The hypocrite is a necessity and is significant for worship. It is just that people should know the Qur'an method well to be able to deal with them effectively.

154

It is dangerous to let your guard down against the hypocrite threat. People must be ever-vigilant against hypocrites because a hypocrite is like sticky tar. The moment you get rid of one of them, another one appears. There is no Muslim community that is free from hypocrites.

155

A hypocrite is not alone. When he abandons Muslims, he turns to an already available hypocrite community. A hypocrite always has a crew that will watch over him and look after him but he hates them as much as they hate him.

156

The hypocrite teaches villainy, misdeeds and hypocrisy to the people around him. Some despicable and immoral people follow after the hypocrite. For instance, if the hypocrite is a devotee of the shadow government, these people become so as well. If the hypocrite is loathsome, they become loathsome too. If the hypocrite is a know-it-all and talkative, they become so as well.

157

If Muslims are supported by hypocrites, unbelievers and malicious people, then they will be ruined. On the other hand, if these people oppose Muslims, it will be clear that Muslims are on the right track.

158

There should be no pride involved in love, since if there is pride, love ends. Pride and lack of forgiveness are the poisons of love. People thus fail in managing love. However, forgiveness, bringing your pride under control, putting your pride aside, this clears the way for love to the fullest extent.

159

The world has come to an end, and the Almighty God wants the end to be magnificent. He does not want Christianity, Judaism and Islam to conclude with such a polytheistic and miserable end, but a magnificent one through the belief of oneness of God; an ending with the appearance of the Mahdi (pbuh), the descend of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and the dominance of Islam. There will be a rapid degeneration following these occurrences.

160

Abolishing the Darwinist education must be tackled as a vital issue. God is denied through Darwinism. And the Turkish youth is growing up to be atheists, Darwinists, materialists. This is a major disaster.

161

Wisdom is a light shed upon us by God; it is given to mankind by God as an inspiration. Wisdom does not appear out of nowhere. If God takes the wisdom away, one would be astounded, become speechless, tongue-tied as if a mute.

162

The common characteristic of all the hypocrites in the era of Our Prophet (pbuh) is that they consider themselves superior to Our Prophet and have a desire to stand out beside him. Be it men or women, hypocrites always aim to be the one on the top, to be the greatest. They consider themselves to be God, may God forbid.

163

Hypocrites tell Our Prophet (pbuh) and his companions, "If we knew how to fight, we would certainly follow you." Hypocrites intentionally make themselves appear as incompetent. Additionally, they do not want Muslims to carry out activities for the benefit of Islam. So, they also try to hinder Muslims in this regard.

164

Hypocrites are the reason that the Islamic world is in ruins. Hypocrite is a fearsome force. People are wrong in regarding the disbelievers as the primary concern. If we assume the strength of disbelievers to be 1 out of 1000, the power of hypocrites would be 999 out of 1000. Hypocrites pose the actual threat.

165

The world shadow state considers Rumism as a counter-religion against Islam. They have made extensive preparations, establishing the foundations of a religion in secrecy. Since they know they cannot separate people away from Islam, they consider Rumism as a replacement for it.

166

Every era had its antichrist but the ultimate antichrist will appear in the End Times. And against it, Almighty God sends His Last Guardian, the greatest guardian of all times, Hazrat Mahdi (as).

167

Some people use crying as their weapon when things contradict their interests. This is a devilish method of fussing in order to arouse pity for themselves, in order to acquire something, in order to object to something, to frustrate the other party. A Muslim cries for the love of God. They do not cry to bother or frustrate others, as this is indecent and atrocious.

168

When hypocrites talk, they talk with malice. When they talk, they talk instigation or trouble, or bad luck, or a reason to argue, or something to mess with, or delusion, or a devilish urge. What about a believer? He always talks in a way that brings prosperity, tranquility, a way that removes instigation, a way that brings comfort to the heart.

169

The hypocrite never takes upon himself the Qur’anic verses about hypocrites; only a believer does that. A Muslim realizes that with terror and astonishment; he says to himself, what have I done? I have sunk deep into the signs of hypocrite, I have sunk deep into a swamp and I have to get away. He gives up completely; he ends it fundamentally in his heart because it is clear that he cannot live with it: Besides he had already seen how filthy it was.

170

Bayju Noyan, one of the closest disciples of Rumi, was a murderer who killed thousands of Muslims while he was in Hulagu Khan’s army.

171

If you are looking for the Mahdi's group, God presents evidence in the Qur’an. He says, “Follow those who do not ask you for any wage” When we look at religious scholars and teachers, we see that almost all of them are getting paid: Ninety nine percent of them are getting paid. If you want to find the Mahdi group, you will recognize them when they don’t ask for a wage.

172

The best fight against ISIS is an intellectual fight. Why don’t you give a chance to an intellectual fight? They are going there and bombing civilians. The solution to ISIS terror is the system of the Mahdi. The Mahdi will unlock the key to ISIS.

173

Hypocrites temporarily take shelter. They are like a tuberculosis microbe; sometimes they are repressed, but they attack you when the body is weak.

174

Sometimes a hypocrite takes shelter; you have to be very careful with that. He temporarily hides himself. He will have sudden attacks. That is, when he sees Muslims weak, he stands guard, and becomes violent, starts snarling. He yells, acts dishonorably, snitches on people, creates trouble, and behaves disgracefully.

175

If a person continues to be a hypocrite even though he acknowledges the signs of hypocrisy [from the Qur’an], then he is a hypocrite himself. However, if he is making changes in himself, then this means he is sick, and he is just trying to recover from his disease. There are those who have disease in their hearts; they do look like hypocrites. If they are being reasonable, if they acknowledge the verse, then they will renounce it.

176

The hypocrite has no option but to look like a Muslim, so that no one would perceive him or understand him. While employing this strategy, he suffers as he realizes that he is serving Islam in some way. The supreme God states that in a Qur’anic verse, and says, “They bite their fingers.”

177

All youth has to be raised conscious of national values. A course called national consciousness must be placed in the curriculum of schools; national consciousness classes three times a week. The British shadow state, the PKK, Darwinism, communism, namely all sorts of ideologies and activities that intend to destroy Turkey, must be explained in this course.

178

Hypocrites have devilish loyalty to one another. There is an understanding between unbelievers and hypocrites but when their own interests are at stake, they of course tear one another apart like wild animals. That is why the hypocrite is also wary of unbelievers.

179

The hypocrite has a great level of general culture. That is why he falls prey to feelings of grandeur. That is why he looks down on Muslims and has this urge to occupy an important position in the world. God says that, “Certainly [they] have nothing in their breasts except for pride which they will never be able to vindicate…” (Surah Ghafir, 56)

180

The hypocrite waits among Muslims for the right moment to attack them. At the moment of attack he wants to appear as a leader with all his filth and vulgarity and devilish characteristics. In other words, he is a human form of the devil.

181

The hypocrite will leak information to unbelievers because he foolishly thinks that will damage Muslims. That is what satisfies his devilish spirit. In the same way that the vampire calms down by sucking blood, so the hypocrite finds consolation in immorality and filth. But he is like a bat who cannot see the scientist watching him as he flies around; he foolishly imagines he can wrap Muslims round his little finger.

182

The hypocrite never severs his relations with unbelief. It is food and drink to him. That is a characteristic that continues uninterrupted. For example, he will get up in the night and tell unbelievers all kinds of things about Muslims. That is why God tells us to be on our guard. We must be careful when we speak. Hypocrites must not be told Muslims’ secrets. But the hypocrite will draw close in order to learn them.

183

Satan has a vast level of general culture. Hypocrites are also very cultured but they use it for devilish purposes, to put on airs and look very grand.

184

The hypocrite is unwilling to learn about the Qur’an. He hates the Qur’an. He hates anything to do with faith. He never wants to learn about all that. But if he does have any empty knowledge, that is solely for purposes of show. He would like to be called a religious scholar.

185

There is a deadly hatred in the heart of the hypocrite. All hypocrites are like the devil. They are always planning murder. They wanted to murder the Prophet (pbuh) and there are intentions of murder in the stories of the prophets Joseph and Moses. When we look at the Qur’an we see that killing the believers and the prophets at the top of their wish list. But God has always confounded them.

186

Hypocrites say, “I love the Prophet (pbuh). I never go along with unbelief.” Yet as soon as he is out of sight he heads off to the unbelievers.

187

The daily prayer really annoys the hypocrites; they regard that as totally unnecessary but he likes the good intentions and virtue of Muslims. The immorality of the unbelievers troubles him. That is why the hypocrite does not nail his colors to the mast of unbelief.

188

The hypocrite is unwilling to provide the slightest benefit for Islam, not in his writings or what he knows or anything. He does not want any benefit to accrue to Muslims. If he does do it, it will only be very minor, and purely for show or not to give himself away.

189

The hypocrite is careful to put on a show in order not to give himself away. He makes a shell for himself and walks around with it but he is stupid and unaware that he is being observed. He foolishly imagines he is being very clever and covering his tracks. He spends his whole life wading through filth.

190

The hypocrite is always subconsciously thinking about the day he will become an unbeliever. He can never relinquish that idea; it eats him up. God says in one verse that, ‘They belong neither to you nor to them…’ He says they are undecided between the two groups (Surat al-Mujadala, 14)

191

The hypocrite is unaware of his stupidity. He does not know that God is watching him. He is like a lab rat in a jar: Various doors open up for that animal and the animal thinks it is being very clever. It tries this and that and thinks it is developing strategies. But the scientist is watching from the outside. It falls down and rolls over and imagines it is doing things for itself. The hypocrite is a devilish creature but as foolish as a lab rat. He is very stupid.

192

The hypocrite never wants to place any verses from the Qur’an on his Facebook or Twitter account. He may sometimes reluctantly put them in to show off to Muslims or to hide the fact he is a hypocrite.

193

Islam, being a Muslim, is a lightweight thing for the hypocrite. He regards unbelief as much richer. I mean, he finds the behavior and lifestyle of unbelief, and its attitude toward Islam and the Qur’an, very exciting. The hypocrite is a secret fan of unbelief; he is utterly embarrassed by being a Muslim.

194

God describes the system of the Mahdi in a veiled manner in the Qur’an. He describes it in Surat al-Kahf, in the story of Solomon and in Surah Yusuf, but in veiled language.

195

Talking about God and religion on the Internet hurts hypocrites more than a cut. Talking about unbelief gives them comfort. They suppose it brings them popularity, helps them build up a reputation. Coming into contact with infidels and blasphemy, even if for just a bit, gladdens their hearts. This gives them a tormented comfort and pleasure.

196

Hypocrites watch Muslims all the time. They need to do that for intelligence purposes. They are sell-out intelligence officers.

197

The real deal for hypocrites is unbelief. Their infidel souls are ashamed of being Muslims. They are ashamed of mentioning Islam and the Qur’an.

198

Hypocrites would always like to see their names associated with unbelief. They do not want to be known as Muslims. Verses of the Qur’an disturb them; they find them insulting. For example, posting a verse on their Facebook page offends their feelings, or the Qur’an, or Muslims. If it were within their power, they would erase them all, because they are ashamed of them. However, they know this would expose them, so they post them halfheartedly and unwillingly. In truth, they hate them.

199

They take serious offense from being referred to along with Islam and the Qur’an. Take a look at our century. It is impossible to see Muslim-like statements, verses or activities of Muslims, or expressions from the Qur’an in anything a hypocrite posts or draws on his page online, or in any other media.

200

Hypocrites do not want to look like Muslims. For instance, when they are not with Muslims they make sure they appear like unbelievers. They are ashamed of being Muslims. They take offense from being seen with the Qur’an, and with Muslims. They take pleasure from being remembered with unbelief. They think it is showy.

201

Hypocrites attack you, they hoot and holler, they act disgracefully. They have no respect for anything. They are always presumptuous. We see these characteristics in all the hypocrites in history.

202

Hypocrites condemn everything. Condemn this, condemn that; they constantly discredit Muslims. They interrupt charity, love, and joy. They interrupt friendship. They do not want believers to be in peace, so they continuously do nasty things.

203

Hypocrites are like bats; they need villainy just as much as bats need blood. In any case they have to get involved in this filth. Even if it is only two or three people, hypocrites will feel relieved like bloodsucker vampire bats when they come into contact with unbelief.

204

Hypocrites always move in the dead of night. They need silence. The very first thing these hypocrites would do in the dark is to get in touch with unbelievers, providing immediate intelligence to them. They cannot live any other way.

205

God appreciates martyrdom and getting wounded in His way. He appreciates preaching religion until late at night. What God also likes is the effortful search for His love. Only then God bestows this love and passion to those who are worthy.

206

God loves love and passion very much. Angels love Him too, but God does not find this enough because the angel is bound to love. However, the love of humans, who suffer in pain, is God’s favorite.

207

God is love; God is endearment. God wants to be loved and to love, but He wants real love, not something you would get from a robot. That is, love from someone who loves not out of obligation but by his own will. That is why God created passion and love. God lives within His creatures; for instance when we feel passion, God feels it too.

208

When you advise hypocrites to talk about God, they go crazy, you tell them to stay away from blasphemy, they go crazy. It is like satan’s session. You know how satan goes mad all of a sudden? That is how they go mad out of nowhere. That is why you have to be very careful and even-tempered when you talk to hypocrites.

209

You need to be very attentive while talking to a hypocrite. When they are prescribed goodness and proscribed evil, they become insane, enraged. Since their souls welcome rebellion and fiendishness, they feel very uncomfortable.

210

Hypocrites do not appreciate advice. When someone tries talking to them to give advice, they go mad.

211

The most distinct characteristic of hypocrites, see, you should never forget this; in any case, they will come into contact with blasphemy. You will be astonished, they turn up like bad pennies, and they will absolutely make that contact with blasphemy. This is their most persistent quality and this is because they need it for intelligence.

212

Hypocrites feel suffocated if they do not come into contact with blasphemy. In any case they will figure out a way to come into contact with blasphemy. That is what they thrive on. You will never see a hypocrite who does not have some connection with blasphemy. Making mischievous and secret contact is an irrevocable quality of the hypocrite; it is their disease.

213

This filth is deep down inside of hypocrites. They yearn for it. They want a constant connection with blasphemy. Muslims bother them. In other words, talking about Islam and the Qur’an disturbs hypocrites.

214

If hypocrites realize that they are caught, they will be strategic. They may start behaving like Muslims. However when they find the opportunity, as stated in the verse, they “...will revert from religion,” and dive back into filth.

215

Hypocrites are a great danger to the world of Islam. Every now and then they take a step back but this is almost always temporary. They will go back to meanness and foulness again. That is to say, you should always watch out for the hypocrite.

216

There is no difficulty in Islam: God wants it to be convenient as He emphasizes that in verses multiple times, and says that the Prophet Abraham’s (as) religion is easy. In another verse He says, “God desires ease for you; He does not desire difficulty for you.” (2/185) Islam is like a festival; it is a religion of joy. Things like hanging people, cutting them up, beating people, blasphemy, making women’s lives miserable do not exist in it. Islam considers women to be flowers.

217

The most significant characteristic of Jesus Christ is his sharp-eyed façade. His eyes are like blades, looking very clever. He has grey eyes, not green, they are grey. His eye color takes after the Prophet Joseph.

218

Jesus Christ will be engaged in a clandestine activity. Mahdi (as) is out in the open but since Allah has covered and hid the Mahdi under 70 veils, no one can find him out until the last moment.

219

“The men and women of the hypocrites are as bad as one another.” (Surat at-Tawba, 67) God does not distinguish between them. Hypocrites are no different to one another. They should be able to live with unbelievers but they cannot; they can only live with one another, as a distinct community.The funerals of martyrs with just 100, or 200 or 1000 people are no good. You must have at least a million people there every time. The state should organize that; the air should ring with people shouting, ‘Allahu Akbar (God is Great)’

220

You cannot love someone with mere flesh and blood. If you look at things on the basis of flesh and blood, they will smother you, and nothing will come of it. You must love the manifestation and spirit of God in the other person.

221

If you regard everything as a manifestation of God, He will make you love them, and they will love you. It is God Who brings that love into being: There is no other kind of love. Love of God is the only love.

222

Muslims are basically influenced by the verses of the Qur’an. They read them, and the verses affect them. But the real hypocrite never has anything to do with them. He regards that as just a bit of fun, may God forbid.

223

It is not easy to understand the mind of the hypocrite. Sometimes he may have all the signs of the hypocrite, but then you look and see he has become a Muslim: He pulls himself together and abandons his old ways. Others are insanely attached to hypocrisy and never renounce it. Those people are the true hypocrites.

224

If you try to establish a Kurdish state inside Turkey, that would be an act of murder against the whole Islamic world. In other words, that would be a project aimed at annihilating Turkishness and the Islamic world and we will never allow it.

225

Our Kurdish brothers are luminous and heroic. Anyone who speaks badly of them for being Kurds or looks down on them because of their ethnicity is totally devoid of character. The Turkish state must stand up for our Kurdish brothers.

226

Since the hypocrite is always looking for an opportunity to create filth, one needs to speak to him very intelligently and rationally. One must not speak to as not to give him an opportunity to spread filth, immorality or aggression.

227

For example, if you bring a hypocrite something to eat he will find something wrong with it. If you give him a present he will find something wrong with it. If you ask a question he will think it is aimed against him. He will think the worst of everything. That is from where the troubled nature and immorality of the hypocrite springs.

228

Serving Islam, God and the Holy Book is what the hypocrite finds most distressing. Because he hates God, may God forbid, he has no desire to serve Him. He does not want to serve the faith because he detests the Prophet (pbuh). And because he hates Muslims, he has no desire to help them.

229

The hypocrite spends all day on empty things. He will look around him, watch TV or see what is happening outside. He just waits for time to pass. He regards serving Islam as foolish. Since he harbors anger toward God, may He forbid, he finds it very difficult to serve Islam.

230

The hypocrite spends all day doing pointless things. That is one way of identifying the hypocrite. How should he do his hair? What should he wear? He spends all day worrying about that kind of thing. The hypocrite takes no interest in religion or the faith. It stifles him. That is what the hypocrite finds least attractive of all.

231

Hypocrites are mines of information. But the hypocrite has no interest in the Qur’an. The hypocrite is bored and embarrassed by Islam and the Qur’an. But he will regard reading books by an atheist intellectual as important and as a chance to show off.

232

The hypocrite always wants to be running around. He never wants to sit and read the Qur’an or preach Islam. This is a very powerful subconscious instinct. He wants to read about anything except Islam. The hypocrite attaches great importance to general culture. To irrelevant things like what is so and so in Africa doing. They never prioritize the Qur’an, or the signs that lead people to faith. Only empty things. Because that is how they can show off and put on airs.

233

Sending a hypocrite away from Muslims is like turning off a patient’s life support machine. One must never abandon hope that someone in a coma may recover. You cannot just pull the plug. You have to wait until the person comes out of the coma. But some people never do, they die in a comatose state. The hypocrite is like that.

234

The hypocrite is always looking for a reason to desert Muslims and join the unbelievers. One must not give them the opportunity. But if he is really a hypocrite, the system will eventually get rid of him. No matter what you do. It would be a sin not to show patience and to try to get rid of him directly. That is no good. You have to show patience, because they may end up being cured. The hypocrite needs to be treated.

235

The hypocrite watches the struggle between Muslims and unbelief like a gladiatorial spectacle. If he thinks that unbelief has the upper hand, he will abandon the Muslims and attach himself to unbelief in a single moment. The hypocrite is quite vile. He will sign up to them without a moment’s hesitation.

236

The hypocrite is a master when it comes to supporting and helping unbelief. Verses about the hypocrites say that hypocrites provide enormous intelligence for unbelief, but that when they see a weakness in unbelief, they flee that, too.

237

The system of the Mahdi is based on love. The system of the Mahdi always desires love, compassion, friendship and brotherhood. The system of the hypocrite, of the antichrist, is the exact opposite of that.

238

The hypocrite is certain he is a victim of injustice, and that is why he has this hatred of believers. He also thinks that system of unbelief is very just, and he praises it lavishly.

239

The hypocrite always finds something he can infect Muslims with. He is never content. There is never anything he is content with or gives thanks to God for. He always finds something about Muslims to complain about.

240

The system of the Mahdi is an anti-hypocritical movement. It is the exact opposite of hypocrisy.

241

The hypocrite is blatantly immoral. He serves people of unbelief like a slave, makes all kinds of sacrifices for them with his insane energy and does everything that he can for them just to make life difficult for believers.

242

The PYD is a different name for the PKK. It is a Stalinist, communist, vile and treacherous organization that wishes to break Turkey apart. It is also directly affiliated to terrorist leader Ocalan and Qandil.

243

The hypocrite wishes to return to his old beliefs and lifestyle at the first opportunity. His mind is always full of unbelief. That idea never leaves his head. After becoming a Muslim he still wishes to return to his old immorality, wild ways, lack of character, dishonor or whatever. He cannot forget that life of unbelief. He goes round and round but always ends up in the same place.

244

Our Prophet (pbuh) gets up in the night, and the hypocrite comes slithering up to him like a snake. He gets up in the daytime, and the hypocrite comes slithering up then. They never leave him alone. ‘We love and respect him very much,’ they say, but their real aim is to gather intelligence.

245

The hypocrite pays no attention to the warnings in the Qur’an. He is always hopeful about himself. He thinks that good things awaits him in the hereafter, despite all his dishonesty and immorality. Yet God reveals that they will occupy the lowest circle of hell.

246

Shamelessness is the defining characteristic of the hypocrite. The Qur’an verses concerning hypoctries show that the hypocrite never assumes responsibility and always acts as if it were nothing to do with him. Yet the hypocrite is also terrified of the signs.

247

There is only one party organizing the PKK; it is the British shadow state apparatus based in London. there is nobody or nothing else. This is the only truth.

248

If you give fanaticism an inch, it takes a mile. It is very dangerous. The state must adopt a determined policy to spread modern thinking, a modern state structure and a modern conception of art. In other words, one must live by a modern Islam. What does modern mean? Like in the time of the Companions.

249

Hypocrites are always disposed to what is unlawful. Hypocrites are always disposed to theft, cheating, lying, spying, causing strife, filth, sexual perversion and even murder. We see that in the Qur’an. They always have a tendency to kill.

250

There are hypocrites in all Muslim communities. They are not at all few in number, and are always increasing. You think they are finished with, but they come back. Hypocrisy never ends.

251

Shadow state apparatuses control things, and the hypocrites act as their troops. Shadow state apparatuses would have no power without troops. So we must scatter the hypocrites, their troops, by means of knowledge and faith.

252

The sole reason why Islamic world end up like that is hypocrisy. Shadow state apparatuses use hypocrisy. Hypocrites are the army of the shadow state apparatus.

253

Hypocrites think, “Muslims may one day be scattered and crushed, but unbelief can never be destroyed,’ They have always regarded unbelief as powerful, and they have always ended up defeated.

254

Trusting in unbelief but not in Muslims, that kind of hypocritical way of thinking, is something that attracts the wrath of God.

255

Hypocrites also strive to lead believers astray. Since they have sickness in their hearts, they want believers to have sickness in their hearts, too. They want to make them like them.

256

Throughout history, weak people who have converted to Islam have also kept one foot in the unbeliever camp. For example, some of the people alongside the Prophet Abraham remained unbelievers. The wife of the Prophet Lot remained an unbeliever. She was always thinking about that civilization in Sodom and Gomorrah, those buildings and that food and clothing. But Almighty God wiped them all out one morning. He only spared a very few believers.

257

Hypocrites in the time of the Prophet Moses sought dignity and honor at Pharaoh’s side. Those Egyptian inscriptions and statues were all the equivalents of branding for them. Having hieroglyphics on the walls of their homes, wearing Egyptian clothing and speaking Egyptian were all very important to them.

258

“I can live by faith and be together with those lacking faith at the same time,” he says. That is when hypocrisy begins. If you act together with the Prophet and with Muslims, then God will love you. But if you abandon Muslims and think you are being very clever, that is no good.

259

It is very important to watch out for hypocrites. They are always attacking Muslims because they are always looking for new foul deeds to commit.

260

The hypocrite is a devilish model of a human being. He is always dishonorable. He commits one foul deed after another. He never stops, because his lower self is under the control of the devil.

261

The hypocrite is always working against Muslims. He spends 24 hours a day wondering what devilish things to do. But since the means at his disposal are limited, so is his range of activity.

262

Of course we can have music and dancing and fun. You must not add artificial prohibitions to the faith. And then Islam will rule the world.

263

Those who say that life must be miserable and wretched with no art or joy are ruining the Islamic world. We will not allow them to ruin Turkey in that way. Why should we not have music, or dance? You must come to your senses. What is there about these things that is incompatible with the faith? What verses of the Qur’an are these acts disobey? What harm do they do anyone? Where do you get these ideas from?

264

Darwinism is a worldwide devilish movement under the protection of the British shadow state.

265

Two forces struggle for supremacy in the human soul – conscience and logic. A believer must be always on the side of good conscience. When he heeds his conscience, God will always send him prosperity and goodness. Islam is growing very fast. Acting upon one’s logic always ruins people.

266

Living by Islam means beginning to live entirely in accordance with one’s conscience. It means entirely abandoning the mentality of denying the existence of God.

267

Hypocrites are always looking for filth. In the same way that the devil never tires of committing evil, so the hypocrite is always on the lookout for new adventures, since he also has a devilish soul.

268

The British shadow state apparatus fails to realize that Turkey has changed and is now a modern country. It is unaware of its strength and determination.

269

It is the PKK that is responsible for the deaths of civilians where fighting is going on. They have become the puppets of the British shadow state apparatus, and they are always committing murder.

270

In the time of the Mahdi, women will be as free as they can possibly be and will not be troubled anywhere.

271

God is bringing about the reign of Islam and the system of the Mahdi very gradually, before the eyes of the world. Nobody can do anything to prevent it. Because they are not destined to be prevented.

272

Lovelessness is not good. It leads to ill fortune and disaster. That is wrong. God tells us to be friends with everyone.

273

What is this lovelessness? It has spread everywhere. So calm down, come to your senses, try and see the good side of everything and improve your own surroundings. If there is an ugly thing, they just make it 10 times uglier. If something is broken, they shatter it into tiny pieces. That is no good. You must repair things and put them right.

274

There is terrible turmoil all over the world. People may be wondering, ‘How can Islam ever prevail and how can the system of the Mahdi ever make any headway under these conditions?’ But that is the really amazing thing, how God will bring about the reign of Islam despite all these things.

275

Almighty God wants us to be in a state of hope and fear. He says, ‘Do not say your conscience is clear and you will not go to hell.’ Because He speaks of people who become Muslims after being unbelievers, but who then fall back into unbelief, and then become Muslims again. In other words, God can take one’s soul and later give it back. He can make that happen. May God forbid. Feeling certain of something does not mean it is true.

276

The British shadow government apparatus organized the invasion of Iraq, although America appeared to be in the fore. It was the British shadow government apparatus that produced the justification for the invasion.

277

Most Muslims are unaware that the system that is inflicting such pain on them, the force behind the scenes, is the British shadow government apparatus. It is astonishing that they do not know. They are instead looking in places that have nothing to do with it.

278

The main idea across the Middle East revolves around the system of the Mahdi. Evangelicalism is entirely rooted in the system of the Mahdi. The CIA bases all its actions on the system of the Mahdi. The system of the Mahdi is also the main philosophy of al-Qaeda, the Taliban and ISIS, and of the whole Shiite world. The entire Sunni community espouses the system of the Mahdi. Everything happens within the context of the system of the Mahdi. The system of the Mahdi is the main reality in the world. The Middle East is currently being shaped round the system of the Mahdi.

279

The suffering and horror in the world will keep on growing, right until the coming of the Mahdi is clear for all to see. There will be an unbelievable increase in pain and suffering everywhere, not just in the Islamic world in 2016 and 2017, and by 2018 there will literally be a hell on earth. But 2019, 2021 and 2023 will be years of salvation.

280

Anyone who does not do what he does for God’s sake will inevitably be defeated. The important thing is God’s approval. The way will always be clear for anyone who seeks His approval. This is a secret and unknown force.

281

Modernity must become a policy of state. Unless Turkey becomes a modern country it will always be the target of various stratagems and people will try to destroy it. The most vitally important thing is to build a modern Turkey.

282

Hulagu, one of the worst antichrists in the history of Islam, made Mawlana the governor of Anatolia and supported him morally and financially. Hulagu refused to recognize any scholar, endowment, charity or religious foundation that was not loyal to Mawlana.

283

What kind of interpretation of Islam is it if you do not preach to atheists and Darwinists? Who are we meant to command good and forbid evil to? Who are we meant to struggle against? Muslims have a duty to talk about Islam to Jews and Christians, known as the People of the Book, to atheists, to pagans and to everyone, in the kind of language they can understand. That is God’s command. You cannot talk about Islam using hostile language, only through love.

284

Our Prophet (pbuh) spoke with Christians and with Jews. He was friends with them. He spoke and preached to pagans and idol worshipers. That is what Islam requires.

285

The Prophet Moses (pbuh) preached to Pharaoh, and the Prophet Abraham preached to Nimrod. A Muslim will speak to and preach to anyone, be they atheist, communist or whatever.

286

Two hundred years ago, the British shadow state apparatus set the mindset of the PKK, the project intended to break Turkey apart and establish a separate Kurdish state in the Southeast, in motion.

287

The British shadow state apparatus is trying to get the Turkish nation to adopt a new religion called Rumism, Mawlavism and to become followers of Rumi. They reject Islam and the Qur’an, but they say, ‘We are followers of Mawlana.’

288

Chatham House (The Royal Institute of International Affairs) represents the main plank of the British shadow state apparatus. It holds a Darwinist, materialist world view. It is also the executive headquarters of the global Darwinist dictatorship, the system that imposes the teaching of Darwinism all over the world.

289

Members of the shadow state apparatus claim to enjoy divine status and great superiority. In other words, they think they are very different to regular people. They claim to read books that ordinary people do not, to know things they do not, to be cleverer than ordinary people, to speak to people that ordinary people do not speak with, and to make plans and take part in secret activities that ordinary people are unaware of.

290

Every time a hypocrite makes things difficult for a Muslim, he finds he has been drawn a bit closer to hell. And troubles in this world also begin plaguing him even more.

291

One thing about hypocrites is that they want to make things difficult for Muslims. In their eyes, the more harm they can do to them, the better. They want to upset Muslims verbally, and make them uneasy, and spread the idea that Muslims will do bad things. Even the smallest amount of harm is still very valuable in their eyes. Yet the harm they imagine they are doing to Muslims always ends in Muslims earning more merit in the Sight of God, and in protecting them from evil.

292

The shadow state apparatus has a plan to encourage traditional, orthodox Islam, and thus make Islam look aggressive and psychopathic, and to set Muslim against Muslim. This is a grave danger.

293

Ruthlessly eradicating local peoples is one of the best known policies of the British shadow state apparatus. They almost wiped the native Australians out entirely.

294

Causing people to kill others or to commit mass slaughter is a twisted belief deriving from the British shadow state apparatus’s Darwinist way of thinking. They believe in social Darwinism, and they believe in Darwinism. But we are now shattering that faith.

295

The PKK’s sharpshooters are not men trained by the PKK. It has American experts run by the British shadow state apparatus, and they train them.

296

Atheists and the army of the antichrist will have highly developed weapons. Our troops do not have such weapons. The Turkish Army needs to establish superiority in terms of weaponry.

297

If you believe in God, it would be cruel not to wake up for the morning prayer. That is because you promise God and say that you love God, that you appreciate His blessings on you and that you are thankful to Him. But then you say, "I do not want to thank You!" How is that acceptable?

298

One wakes up for the morning prayers with love. God created you with all these details and gives you uninterrupted blessings. In the morning God gives you food, He feeds you at lunch time and also at dinner. He gives you your breath constantly and has your heart working uninterruptedly day in and day out. If He stops your heart for a moment, you would be dead. If He stops your breathing for a moment, you would be dead. If you consider prayers to be too much for God, that would be foul play against God.

299

For the sake of our country, for the sake of our national security and national integrity, the policy of hatred should end. It is important to stem the tide of bigotry, as its main policy is hatred towards everything.

300

A hateful character is very common amongst young people. They hate Russia, Israel, Greece, Iran; they hate rival political parties, rival football clubs, they even hate the cities they don't live in. They harbor incredible amounts of hatred in them. Such societies naturally become easy targets: That’s why it is crucial to end this hateful character. It should be a top priority.

301

When they decide to tear down a country, they first turn its people into loveless, crude, brutal, vindictive crowds that have no inclination towards art or anything that is beautiful. Such people can no longer love anyone, any group, or any other country for that matter. After this first stage is completed, it becomes easier for them to bring down that nation.

302

Even the prettiest, the most beautiful person will decay under the ground [when they are dead]. Life is very short: We thank God for what He gave to us but it would be wrong to get attached to this body. Think about a very beautiful lady: Open her grave years later and you will see only a skeleton; a skull, arms and legs. Or think about all those heroes, the lions of the past: Even their bones are gone now.


303

Galata is sacred for the British deep state. They carried out their evil activities like murders and torture, all in that tower. It was also the center of their intelligence activities. They used the Galata Tower for intelligence.

304

If no one ever objected to us as we preached the religion, if everyone accepted everything we said, supported us, praised us, what do you think would happen in the Hereafter? The reward would be much less. But if there is objection, if you are working and making an effort despite that objection, the reward will be immense. God creates resistance, a lot of resistance, only so that Muslims will be more greatly rewarded . It is a gift of God to Muslims.

305

Galata was the center of the Mevlevi houses. That’s why the members of the British deep state revere it. That neighborhood is sacred to them; they regard it as the meeting point of their spies, of their agents.

306

Turkey should be a model country. They’ve been plotting to destroy Turkey for the past 200 years, particularly the British deep state. But why not help make it an ultra-modern,an exemplary country for the rest of the Islamic world, instead of seeking to destroy it? Turkey could do great services [for the world, if they helped make Turkey very modern].

307

The British deep state sought to push Muslims towards ISIS, Al-Qaeda and create a terrorist bloc thoroughout the world so that they could say, “Muslims are all terrorists and all terrorists are the same, so let’s just kill them all." In other words, they are trying make it look as though all Muslims are terrorists. This is a serious danger.

308

The Western deep states, particularly the British deep state, have developed a new trick, a new method; they are trying to portray all Muslims as terrorists. They are working hard to ensure that.

309

It is important to approach Muslims with compassion, no matter what. Because if you choose to get angry with them instead, you’d have to cut ties with almost ninety per cent of them. For instance, you call ISIS terrorists, and while we are vehemently against their ways, most Muslims in Afghanistan, Pakistan and India share the same views as ISIS: It is because they were raised that way. That is why we should try to save them, approach them with compassion, instead of severing ties with them.

310

God has absolute power and we are His humble servants in need. All power belongs to Almighty God and whatever Almighty God ordains in destiny, it happens. We are His servants in complete submission to Him and everything we do is done with the power God has given us.

311

In Islam, it is wrong to be averse to Jews. Surely, one can feel resentment towards those individuals who have committed sins or those who have oppressed people. In that case, those individuals should be held accountable through the legal system. But blaming the entire Israeli people, that is forbidden. It is not Islamic.

312

There is no hatred for Jews and Christians in Islam. On the contrary, they are protected as the People of Book in the Qur'an. A Muslim cannot have any aversion neither to them, nor to their places of worship. God tells us in the Qur'an that Muslims may marry Jewish and Christian ladies; indeed, some of the wives of our Prophet (saas) were Jewish and Christian.

313

It is important that sincere, honest, modern -thinking pious people are at the forefront in all aspects of life. It is because such people are a guarantees for everyone: Christians, Jews, atheists: Those people fear God and won’t do anything that is not in good conscience. This is a great guarantee for everyone.

314

A believer should always be in good spirits, full of life. If they feel down, sad or distressed about something, or they're bothered by something, the body will want to sleep to get rid of that feeling. But if one is happy, the body wouldn't want sleep, it would want to get up and live life instead.

315

The disintegration of Turkey would mean the ruin of the Islamic world. It wouldn’t be like another country being broken into pieces; that is because Turkey is the brain of the Turkish world. The death of Turkey would mean the death of the Islamic world. She is the brain of the Islamic world. The death of Turkey would mean the ruination of the Islamic world.

316

If you told those [who are weak in faith] to remain sleepless for the sake of God, to serve Islam, they wouldn't do that; but if you told them that they would win a car if they waited standing up for days without any sleep, they would do it without hesitation. This shows the tendency of the inner self to assume an animalistic, dishonorable, low character.

317

If one allows his lower self to take control, the lower self will start acting like an animal; it will act primitively like one.

318

The human body tends to behave like an animal when left to its own devices; it will just want to eat and sleep, it will easily get scared and act selfishly. One should balance out that animalistic side by means of faith. One shouldn't allow oneself to act like an animal.

319

The Companions of our Prophet (saas) always strove for the sake of God. But the hypocrites always had excuses like ‘our houses are exposed' or ‘we would have come if we knew how’. However, if they were told that they would be given gold, they would have immediately obliged. That is because it would have served their interests. However, one's interests should always be in showing good morality; one should choose faith and reward from God instead of gold. Otherwise one would start to turn into an animal.

320

In their twisted minds, the hypocrites do not respect Muslims but feel an incredible respect for unbelievers and hold them in high esteem.

321

Although the Qur'an is very easy to understand, it offers incredible wisdom.


322

An insincere person will try to see Muslims as bad people and unbelievers as good people; he begins to turn everything upside down in his mind. But when a Muslim sees the existence of God with all its glory, which happens naturally when a person looks around himself sincerely, he will immediately want to follow the wisdom in the Qur'an.

323

If a person is insincere, he will want the life of the unbelievers. On the Internet, in books, everywhere he looks, he will search for that kind of life. He will look around to find unbelievers because he admires them. He won’t be able to forget about his past, or his unbeliever friends. He will try to be happy with them.

324

When a person is sincere, he will immediately realize the existence of a Creator; he will realize the existence of God. But if he chooses to be insincere, he will always seek the darkest paths, the darkest ways to deny the existence of God.

325

Anger, hatred, lack of love and compassion, selfishness, cruelty; these feelings blacken the eyes, blacken the words spoken. Once ensnared by such feelings, that person will lose the ability to talk sensibly. Observe carefully the language of those that refuse love. They just can’t make sensible sentences.

326

When love touches the eyes, eyes will become more beautiful and begin to look more deeply. When love touches the tongue, every sentence uttered will be more articulate and wise. When it touches the vocal cords, the voice will sound more pleasant. When it lands on the skin, the skin will find love and begin to glow. In other words, love will beautify a person in every single way.

327

If you invite love, it will come at that instant and is very easy to attain. As soon as it arrives, it settles in the heart, in the brain. And love loves humans because it loves God. When it finds its way to the brain, brain will find relief. When it reaches the heart, heart will burst with joy. Love broadens the horizons.

328

As soon as one ushers in love, it will come. It’s waiting right outside the door. Just say “love, come to me," and it will come instantly to fill your heart. It is ready to serve your soul. Because it’s the way God created it. But people keep it waiting at the door and don't let it in. Instead, they usher in animosity, hostility, coldness, skepticism, cruelty, sarcasm, tactlessness and rudeness and keep love waiting at their door.

329

Love is presented as a luxury, something that is not actually necessary in this life. This is what Satan has preached for centuries. As a result, people today wrongly believe that love is very difficult to attain. Actually it is ingrained in us. Love is a need just like food.

330

Some men say: ‘I don't have love or respect; but I do have money’. What a horrible thing to offer a woman, what a nightmare. They lead such miserable lives. What does it matter if they live in a palace? For such a person, every single day would bring fresh waves of pain. What good would palaces or luxury do without love, without respect?

331

The British deep state is very skilled in concealing itself. The majority of the world’s drug trafficking and mafia networks report to them and do their bidding. Terror organizations, including the PKK, and many other blood-thirsty organizations around the world, are all under their command. The British secret state is thus able to instigate a reign of terror in the countries they wish and use such organizations to that end.

332

Many people wrongly believe that CIA controls the intelligence services of different countries. The truth is, a majority of them are controlled by the British deep state. Abdullah Ocalan is aware of the British deep state and admits that they started the PKK.

333

The British deep state orchestrated the collapse of the Ottomans. It was the British deep state that drew up the borders of Syria and Iraq. It was the British deep state who took the Haram Ash-Sharif, Mecca and Medina from the Ottomans. It is again the British deep state who tries to strengthen the PKK in the Southeast of Turkey and make them establish a separate state in the region.

334

The minds of many of those around the Prophet Moses (pbuh) were wrapped up with the unbelievers. I mean they'd gone to the desert but they did not forget the life they'd had back in Egypt. They were infatuated with everything about Egypt, they admired that ancient Egyptian culture, those cows, the life back there, their way of eating and drinking. A great majority of them remained in that insane spirit until the prophet Moses (pbuh) passed.

335

Family, getting married, having children are all matters that the hypocrites prefer to religion. That is why they remain irresolute between religion and their idols. Hypocrites idolize their families; they idolize their children. They regard them as leverage against Islam.

336

Have a look at satan; whoever satan advocates, there is a malice behind them and there is a beauty in those they refrain to speak about and those they avoid. Satan avoids good people and wouldn't want to talk about them; talking about those good people offends and disturbs it very much.

337

Struggle against the satan requires patience, will-power and wisdom: That is because satan is intelligent, it is obstinate, perfidious and a trickster. Muslims should be very intelligent, patient and should be able to make good plans: That is because satan does not give up easily and the system of the antichrist would not die instantly. Every single plan they make against Muslims should be spoiled one after the other very patiently.

338

The system of the Mahdi is what disturbs the antichrist the most in the End Times. Because the system of the Mahdi is the system that will tear it apart with reason, science and knowledge, the system of the antichrist directly targets the system of the Mahdi.

339

Social Darwinism is the basic philosophy of the British deep state. That is why they are trying to fastidiously trying to keep Darwinism alive.

340

Darwinism is the religion of the antichrist. It is a system under the tutelage of the British deep state. The whole world is obliged to teach it at schools.

341

In order to set our conscience in motion, God shows us inoffensive people being oppressed and killed, being burned. If we do not act on our good conscience we would be committing a crime and that is unacceptable. We will serve Islam with all our might.

342

One should be fastidious about religion, protect and watch over Islam strongly. God protects us and watches over us. He gives us our eyes, nose, mouth and ears. He makes our hearts beat non-stop. We would drop in our tracks if it didn't. He gives us food, He creates colors for us, He creates voices, He creates beauties. God is constantly attending to all our needs.

343

Fear of the future is a matter of faith: One can defeat that fear with faith. It is a sign of failure in this trial if one cannot put his trust in his faith. That fear should definitely be defeated.

344

The fear of the future is what prevents people from becoming devout, practicing Muslims. Otherwise they would serve God, the Qur'an and Islam. But instead they waste all their time with saving money, having a career and getting married.

345

The British deep state is the one orchestrating all the dissensions and persecution created by the regime in Syria right now: The British deep state is also the one orchestrating what is going on in Iraq. At the time, it was the British deep state that drew the borders of Syria and those borders were drawn with rulers. It is again the British deep state that supports the PKK right now.

346

Poverty might appear to be a pitiful concept on the outside, but actually poverty makes people humble, devout and good-mannered. It makes people appreciative of blessings and makes them recognize the value of those blessings.

347

People believe in God's forgiveness but they do not want to be forgiving; that is not acceptable. Just like a person knows that God would forgive him, he has to know to be forgiving as well.

348

Forgiveness is a characteristic God appreciates greatly. That is because revenge might give a lowly pleasure to one's soul, but forgiving is hard; I mean it [forgiveness] necessitates will-power and wisdom. That is because in forgiveness one does not achieve satisfaction, but revenge might bring satisfaction. That is why God takes forgiveness as a basis.

349

If you do not put your trust in God, God would not give you people that you can trust. He would make everyone of them a trouble for you. If you take on God, God would take on you. If you regard God as powerless - may God forbid - God would make you come across powerless people.

350

A Muslim should fiercely stay away from fear of the future. That [fear of the future] means you do not put your trust in God but in that house you bought, or in the money you've saved up somewhere. God would devastate you. Furthermore, what good would that money be to you once God brings troubles upon you? Such a thing is not acceptable. No one dies out of hunger, no one who placed his trust in God has ever been harmed.

351

Fear of the future is religiously unlawful, a Muslim cannot think that way. God is the One Who creates every single second of our lives. All the precautions you take might come back to you as troubles. For instance, you might think about saving money but that might all end up going for cancer treatment or somehow otherwise be spent. You buy a house and God makes it collapse on top of you. One cannot put his trust in such things, but only in God. Anything other than that would be very wrong and would offend God.

352

Sentimentality and anger are beneath Muslims. That is because a Muslim always acts with God in mind. He always thinks rationally and equitably. He never forgets that God is the One Who creates everything, even those things that appear to be the most horrible incidents.

353

God is the Creator of even the maddest or the most abnormal acts. Individuals are not the perpetrators; no one can ever act outside destiny. That is why one needs to be moderate, poised and rational when evaluating incidents taking place.

354

A Muslim would not respond to foolishness with foolishness, to instability with instability, to rage with rage, to anger with anger. One needs to be rational and always be aware of the fact that God is with him; that is because God is the One Who makes the others do those abnormal acts. Consequently a Muslim would be aware of the fact that no one is an independent being, so he would not worry.

355

One should never severe his connection with God. Many things could happen that might appear to be against him, many things might go wrong, but one should nevertheless follow a very rational policy that doesn't mind stepping back when necessary. Muslims are humble people and assume God's sense of right and wrong. Acting moderately as much as possible is what suits a Muslim. Sudden and unrestrained reactions would block one's rationality.

356

Assuming a humble attitude would not bring abatement for Muslims, it is not something depreciative. A Muslim is not in a position to be worried about his pride, but rather about the good of Islam.

357

God does not want us to have only medium wisdom while preaching Islam and disseminating His Message. He wants us to have superior wisdom. Islam would not be disseminated with a mediocre rationality and wisdom; that is because some anti-Islam fronts are in a struggle against Muslims in an ambitious alliance by advocating numerous other philosophies.

358

The traditionalist orthodox system imagines that the more they exert pressure in the name of God, the more they move closer to God: Actually, in such an environment, not only do people not get closer to God but they drift further apart from God and religion and they also lose their mental stability.

359

Modernity, before all else, brings about sanity. In a bigoted system, the human mind cannot operate normally. In a bigoted environment people become half-insane. Look around and you will see that many of them are mentally unstable. In modern societies, the human mind operates sanely and rationally.

360

We need to be a very modern European country. This is something our government should emphasize the most. Without modernity, there would be no progress in science, in arts. Without modernity we would not have any military power. We would become a classical Middle Eastern country and collapse gradually.

361

The government should make Turkey modern. All the institutions of the state should be modernized. Efforts should be made to modernize our people. The buildings, life in general, the system, everything should be modernized. Otherwise there would be a grave danger.

362

Almighty God conceals Himself under covers. Those who can see beneath those covers are very rare; I mean those who are able to uncover, let us say, sixty of those may be seventy covers are very few. People of the heart uncover those covers and the more they do so, the more they become closer to Almighty God.

363

The state should be looking out for the system of the Mahdi with all its might. That is because in the system of the Mahdi, there is no intervention to the state. The system of the Mahdi would not interfere in politics; that is because it has a feature that unites the Turkish world, and it is also a system against bigotry, a system that fully encourages modernity and is fundamentally against separation. That is absolutely ideal for the state.

364

If a person is not offended when inappropriate things are said about God, about the Qur'an, but instead makes a loud noise thinking Mawlana is being insulted, then that would be idolizing him.

365

A Muslim would be falling astray if he accepts the abnormal statements made in the name of Mawlana. We do not know if Mawlana really made those statements or not but those statements are being published in the Masnavi known as his book: It is not possible to accept that.

366

The British deep state is trying to replace Islam with Rumism. Muslims should be very cautious against this plot.

367

The British deep state is the one who rules all the deep states of the world: They also rule the deep state of the US.

368

The British deep state is the real perpetrator in the collapse of the Ottomans. They set nations who've lived alongside each other for centuries against one another through instigation but the civilians of the UK are innocent. The UK government is disturbed by this deep state structure as well.

369

Darwinism is the greatest Godless movement in the history of the world and it originated in the UK. The UK is the country that protects and watches over the antichrist.

370

A country in which women are not modern can never be modern. A country in which women are not comfortable and free can never be free. No one would ever laugh in a country in which women do not laugh. If women are not happy in a country, no one else can ever be happy.

371

Islamic Union is the most important issue; terror will immediately stop with the Islamic Union. The violence Muslims are subjected to will instantly stop.

372

Unification of the Islamic world is known as the system of the Mahdi. The system of the Mahdi equals the unity of the Islamic world and we call the leader heading the Islamic world Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).

373

It seems that in 2016, things will escalate and there will be more violence and terror. However, people of love will start to get stronger, be more connected and start the age of love while voices of the war-mongers, terror and violence proponents, disappear.

374

Darwinism is the system of the antichrist. It is the Godless movement that is foretold to appear in the End Times. It made the whole world Godless and Bookless. We do not have the time to strive to determine the antichrist; the antichrist has already appeared. We need to concentrate on the solution. The solution is the system of the Mahdi. We need to take sides with the system of the Mahdi against the system of the antichrist.

375

The system of the antichrist, the system that impels people to Godlessness, is Darwinism. The antichrist appears as an ideology and makes the whole world Godless and Bookless, Darwinist and materialist. At schools all over the world, the Darwinist, materialist claims of the antichrist are being taught and people are impelled to Godlessness, Booklessness.

376

Hundreds of thousands of Muslims are being martyred. This would all come to an end if we had Islamic Union. It is the lack of an Islamic Union that causes all these murders. If Muslims do not advocate Islamic Union, they would unknowingly be partners to these deaths.

377

It is explicitly stated in the Surah An-Nur, verse 55 - and also in many other verses - that the Islamic world will unite. In the Qur'an, Muslims say, “O Lord, make us leader of those who are God-fearing." That means the Islamic world has a leader, a chief. There is no mention of a leaderless society in the Qur'an, all the societies in the Qur'an have a leader. The Islamic world will have a leader [as well]. They have nothing [they can use] to deny that.

378

Muslims will unite and they will have a leader heading them; we can give that person whatever name we like. We can call him the Caliph of Muslims, we can call him the Chief, we can call him the spiritual caliph. There is no need to be obsessed about the name.

379

If Darwinist-materialist education is removed, there wouldn't be an organization such as the Revolutionist People's Liberation Party/Front. There would not be a movement such as the Marxist Leninist Communist Party and an organization such as the PKK. That is because you would thus be annihilating their ideological structure fundamentally.

380

We need to avoid a system that harbors the enemies of mankind and protects loveless people. We need to strengthen the people of love.

381

If we become Europeans, be enlightened and loving, if we hold women in high esteem, if it is seen that women are free in our country, if we attach importance to the arts, sciences, aesthetics, we would attain the highest quality. Anything other than that would cause our ruin.

382

If you are hateful towards Israel, reject anything that is modern, live in filthy houses, if you are loveless and hateful towards Russians, Greeks, Iranians, Shias, Alawites, Wahhabis, if you keep dropping innuendos about everyone; then you would be falling in the clutches of satan. Don't you see the atrocious position you are in? These are all very wrong. Love is the only thing a Muslim knows, so you need to be full of love.

383

Our Prophet (saas) was the most modern person of his time, the Prophet Abraham (pbuh) was the most modern person of his time. Some people imagine that struggling against modernity is a necessity of Islam. Satan deceives them and shows it as a wrongful path. Modernity is a blessing. Heaven is the most modern place the human mind can perceive of. Muslims should target modernity.

384

Women should be free to wear what they like and live at ease all around the world. Any country that doesn't provide that freedom has been ruined. The countries in which women enjoy freedom become the most modern, most peaceful and most content countries of the world. Anything other than that is not possible. Let those wearing chadors wear it as they like, let those wearing veils wear it as they like, everyone should be free. Ladies should not be oppressed.

385

Any state lacking quality would collapse. Any state that oppresses women would be ruined. That is because half of all people are women. There will be no relief or comfort if women are oppressed there. God takes revenge.

386

Drinking wine, rakı and whisky, being poisoned and wasted is not having fun. There is such a false culture of alcohol and that is a grave mistake. Alcohol is by no manner of means entertaining. It is a very harmful and very disruptive substance.

387

They present Christmas as if it is a tragedy. We celebrated the birthday of our Prophet (saas) with pride and we do so every year. Why are they appalled with the birthday of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh)? He too is a prophet of Islam. He too is one of our Prophets.

388

Perform your prayers five times a day, count beads all night long but have high quality. If you want to cover your head, do so, but do it in style and with quality. Using ugly wraps and cloths is unacceptable. Women used to cover themselves up in the Ottoman times as well but they were like amazing works of art. This was how women appeared before people, like flowers. That is nothing that would prevent being religious.

389

God says, “I am the Eternal Power Who deserves to be loved. I am the One Who creates all love and all those you love. Their images belong to Me as well. So do not ascribe partners to Me and love Me." And that is what is right.

390

Some people imagine that having fun would draw the Wrath of God. Actually not being loved, being forgotten, ungratefulness and a lack of love draw the Wrath of God.

391

It would be very strange for a Muslim not to know anything about the Torah and the Gospels. God refers to the Torah and the Gospels in the Qur'an. It is not acceptable if you refer to them as if you are talking about a myth. They are living, current Books. You simply do not practice those corrupted passages.

392

Love is in the forefront in Christianity. Muslims should read the Gospels. Not the parts that are corrupted but they should read those passages that are compatible with the Qur'an. Love is depicted in Gospels. There are also very beautiful passages in the Torah depicting love very nicely.

393

Societies attain happiness when women are happy. For women to be happy, they should be free and well-protected. Both the state and people should be protective of them, everyone should protect and watch over women and they should be treasured everywhere they go so that they could be happy and vivacious.

394

We need to be the most modern country in Europe. Ankara should be even better than Paris. Istanbul should be far more high quality than London. It should have incomparable quality. There should be decent, kind, companionable people of peace everywhere. Everyone, people from all walks of life, people from every political party should feel love for one another in coffeehouses and streets.

395

Had some bigots been given free reign, neither listening to music, nor sculptures, nor paintings, or freedom for ladies putting on make-up and going out would be left. These people are quite bloodthirsty. That is why Turkey should swiftly go towards a modern, religious line.

396

Israel is an intelligent, wise state in the region. It is an anti-communist state that sides with God. Turkey should be very good friends with Israel in any case.

397

The only weapon we have is our insistence on love that stems from faith and that is all. We need to be devoutly religious but also full of love. We need to be avoid being vindictive, we need to try to make peace between everyone and strive for everyone's well-being.

398

A mentality that oppresses women would never develop and prosper. God would open the path of a country in which women enjoy freedom. It would be the end of a country if women are oppressed in that country.

399

For all the people across Europe, for people all around the world to be friends with us, before all else, for God to love us we need to become an amazing teacher of love. That is to say, we need to show an unprecedented personality. The world should watch us in awe. And we should be very, very modern.

400

A country in which women lack quality, could never attain quality and success. Such a country can never attain quality, can never be modern and European. If women in a country are not enlightened, free, happy and well-groomed, if they are not free in their joy, in their laughter, in sports, in their eating, etc., such a country can never be an enlightened country. Such a country would be dark and every country that becomes overcast would definitely be ruined. May God forbid.

401

Explaining life through random coincidences is the most illogical explanation. How could coincidences bring about pomegranates, oranges, lemons, olives and tangerines? How could Einstein, Newton come into being through coincidences? How could coincidences bring about lions, tigers, bees all of which are perfect beings?

402

The most important part in the struggle against terror organizations is to demoralize them. Humiliation is a way but proving the falsity of their ideology would be the most influential way. Explaining the falsity of their ideology, of their philosophy is the most influential method. You would thus dispirit and demoralize them completely, I mean both their muscle power and their mental power would thus be lost and they would be incapacitated.

403

Animosity against Israel is presented as if it is a merit, a sign of piety or superiority. Actually animosity against the People of the Book is atrocious. We love Jews, we love Christians. We are compassionate towards atheists as well.

404

The system of the Mahdi is not a claim but a demonstration. Islam prevails in the world and an individual takes the lead of the Islamic world. We can then think that he is the Mahdi (pbuh), God knows the truth and that is all (we can do). We cannot enunciate it either, we can only say, "God knows the truth, he might be the one."

405

When they talk about religion they assume that it is all about memorizing the verses, knowing the Qur'an by heart and reciting the verses with tajwid, being careful about idgham (merging). Actually the essence and the wisdom in the Qur'an is what is important. I mean putting the meaning in the Qur'an into practice is important, not reciting the Qur'an by being careful with idgham and qalqalah (adding a slight bounce or reduced vowel sound). Arabs can do that effortlessly in the best manner, but there are also a lot of them who do not put those verses into life, into practice.

406

Our Prophet (saas) did not call people to himself, but to the Qur'an. None of the prophets called people to themselves but rather, to the Books of God. For instance, the Prophet Moses (pbuh) called to the Torah, the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) called to the Gospel. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will be calling people to the Qur'an as well.

407

Wisdom is a beauty God likes. Some people talk plenty but lack wisdom. Wisdom has nothing to do with a lot of knowledge and a lot of verbalism. One might be a walking library but lack that profundity and fail to perceive the wisdom behind that knowledge. Such people only concentrate on the arrogance and snobbery knowledge could bring them. Actually knowledge can only be used for wisdom.

408

Neither the Last Day nor death would have any aspect that would make Muslims uneasy. It would offend God if Muslims think that they would be persecuted or suffer somehow. That is because God says, "Trust Me, if you are good no harm would ever touch you." Muslims should always think good and well about God.

409

The whole issue is in submitting to God wholeheartedly and in loving God. Once you attain that, you would progress steadily on the right path. You might want to go faster, but God would not let you speed up. The system of the Mahdi is a system that progresses slowly. The followers of the Mahdi blossom out slowly as well. No matter how much they want it, no matter what they do, God makes them fill in that preordained time.

410

The core of the system of the Mahdi is wisdom and sincerity. Literary or fancy talks would be like singing a song and would have no true impact on people.

411

Some people assume that Islam can only prevail with huge expenses, great activities, organized movements, by doing things covertly, etc. Look at the Qur'an and you'll see that Islamic values have always prevailed metaphysically. The whole issue is in attaining sincerity.

412

One only serves the system of the Mahdi and cannot claim to be the Mahdi. Look carefully into the course of history and you will see that they all ended up defeated. But God has always opened the way for all those who stepped forth claiming to be in the service of the system of the Mahdi and made them all elated.

413

All of the artificial movements regarding the system of the Mahdi are doomed to collapse. That is because it means mocking the system of the Mahdi. God is the One Who gives one the lead. All the false Mahdi candidates end up defeated.

414

Having fun, Islam, the Qur'an, eating and drinking and everything else; life is a whole with all its entirety. There is no life far-remote from Islam. I mean there is no such thing to call "this part is Islamic and this part is non-Islamic." Islam is in every breath we take; while having fun, while laughing, sleeping, lying and waking up; Islam is in everything and everywhere one can think of. Any moment of life one claims to be outside of Islam is full of unawareness and means devastation.

415

If we become a very modern country, a very enlightened country, if we attain the highest levels in the rights of women, if we become outstanding in arts, science, aesthetics and quality, we would become the strongest country in the world. Otherwise we would be a country that inevitably remains in the chain of Middle Eastern countries. Everyone would walk all over us and we would be devastated, may God forbid.

416

Weakness of faith renders one nonchalant. Such a person would not have the enthusiasm for spreading Islam, they would not have the strength to fear God. They only go after their own interests and their own problems. That is a grave problem.

417

When people are weak in faith, they do not concern themselves with the fact that Muslims are being killed and persecuted in Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria, Libya; they do not think about the Darwinist education being given to our youth. They merely act on their instincts. They only look for where to have fun, how to enjoy themselves. They run after adventures. This nonchalance is the gravest disaster caused by the weakness in faith.

418

The deep state of the UK brought Darwinism to drag the Ottomans down into ruin and they have thus dealt an incomprehensible blow. They have dragged the whole world into a disaster, ripped apart and ruined the world. Both the First and the Second World Wars broke out because of it. Darwinism lies behind both of those wars. That is because both the Marxist way of thinking and the fascist way of thinking are philosophies stemming from Darwinism.

419

Darwinism is the reason why the PKK has progressed. It is again Darwinism that lies beneath the system that martyrs our soldiers and police officers. This is the origin of all these sicknesses.

420

In Darwinist-materialist education, the existence of God is denied, all the prophets are denied: Heaven, Hell, creation is denied. May God forbid, the Power of God is considered as non-existent and this is all done in the name of science. Our government should not be instrumental in this and should put an end to this Darwinist-materialist education.

421

There is no such thing as the torment of the grave. You pass to a different dimension when you die. At the moment you die, you are made to feel that you are Muslim and you would instantly understand. From that peaceful feeling you feel, from your comfort you instantly get it and God would certainly never persecute His servants. There is no such thing. May God forbid, God is far beyond such an unjust, cruel understanding. He is Infinite Wisdom and Endlessly Compassionate.

422

Let me give you an important secret. You should not forget this secret throughout your life; God would never put a sincere Muslim with an open conscience in to Hell and no such person would ever be tormented. If one gives a sincere, determined struggle on the Path of God, even if he lives in a hellish environment in this world, God would make him live like he is in Heaven. That is an amazing demonstration of the power of God.

423

Turkey will eventually become one of the most modern countries of the world. There will be no bigotry, there will be women in revealing clothes and also those covering themselves with chadors, our cities will be far more beautiful than Paris and London; Diyarbakır, Siirt and everywhere else will be amazingly beautiful. We have an astounding determination, strength, means and intellect. We will do all of these things.

424

We have given hundreds of thousands of martyrs and we would give even more if necessary. But we will not let anyone talk ill about God, the Qur'an, our homeland, our people and our flag, insha'Allah.

425

There are bigots all around us; they should not be indulged. These people are the main representatives of the force that would drag the Turkish nation into ruin and they are not even aware of it. If they were left to their own devices they would bring devastation both onto themselves and to the Turkish nation. I am not referring to inoffensive bigots, but to those who actively advocate the bigoted mentality. The policy of the deep state of the UK is founded upon investing in those people.

426

The plot they devised against Turkey, against the Turks, can only be dashed by making Turkey the most modern, highest quality state that attaches utmost importance to the rights of women, arts and science. Otherwise it seems that the plot they devised works like clockwork; Turkey is being dragged into the darkness of bigotry.

427

In bigotry, misogyny steps in, animosity against women develops and the arts, science and aesthetics die out. The traditionalist Orthodox system prevails everywhere. After that the state and the nation collapses. This is the covert policy implemented by the deep state of the UK. We can overcome this policy with arts, science, aesthetics and by having an even higher quality than the Europeans.

428

Bigotry develops mainly as a result of a policy implemented by the deep state of the UK. Turning people into bigots is enough to ruin a country; afterwards, that state would fall into pieces on its own.

429

Wireless technology, mobile phones, image transfer technology and the internet are all for the system of the Mahdi. Almighty God did not create it for people to merely have fun but for Islam to prevail throughout the world with ease.

430

Our brothers in the Southeast are suffering many ordeals and by the leave of God, they are attaining many merits because of that, insha'Allah. They should be a bit patient. Our state should help them profusely especially with food and clothing. Big factories, sweets factories, sugar factories, oil factories should allocate a contingent for the Southeast. That would be a great deed.

431

In bigotry, homes lack quality, their cars lack quality, their streets lack quality. An incomprehensible degeneracy pervades around them. The quality of the clothes goes bad, the quality of paintings, food and everything goes bad and becomes blunt. Bigotry advocates this bluntness, this crassness and this lack of quality and that is a grave danger. We need to be very cautious against that.

432

There is no scale or limit to bigotry, it is like an avalanche; it starts small and then gets bigger, it advances and swallows people, it crushes people. That is what happened in Egypt, in Syria, in Libya. People who have a desire to kill others rise up. People who want to die and to kill rise up. In that respect it is highly dangerous.

433

We have a responsibility to behave sincerely. God creates Heaven even in Hell for those who are sincere. He gives blessings to sincere Muslims from where they least expect it. All those are hidden miracles of the Qur'an. People of faith understand this and see the covert signs of God, but heedless people would not see them.

434

God gives abundance and relief onto those who strive on His Path and casts troubles and problems on those with ill-will, as you can see. God opens the way for those striving on the good path. That is a miracle. God eases the way for those who want to advance on His path.

435

When one reads the Qur'an, wisdom settles in him and he becomes completely reasonable and rational. The Qur'an is the book of reason. It is a light that causes wisdom to settle in the brain. Normally wisdom is not formed in one's brain, only intelligence. When the human brain comes into contact with the Qur'an, wisdom and reason settles in. Otherwise, wisdom cannot possibly be attained, only intelligence can.

436

Our Prophet's (saas) good conscience was very much at ease. He was very serene and peaceful. He didn't have the least of that uneasiness of a man who creates a religion. He was very much innocent, very decent and very calm. He waited for revelation with patience. When the revelations came, the hafiz attending memorized them instantly. He also memorized the verses and had no interference on the revelations other than that.

437

Our Prophet (saas) had amazing honesty and decency. That superior morality continued on him throughout his life. It is one of the signs of his Prophethood. Everything about him is modest and reasonable; everything about him is balanced. He had an amazing patience in the face of things that many others couldn't tolerate. He had an astounding power of forgiveness. He had an amazing kindness and decency.

438

Artists should not be left in the hands of the ignorant, in the hands of bigots. That is because bigots would want to ruin and corrupt everything. They become the accomplices of satan and ruin everything that is beautiful.

439

Lying is not an ordinary act. It is atrocious, it darkens one's face, takes away his mind and sanity, it makes one ugly.

440

Lying is a form of insanity and it is quite widespread among the ignorant, especially among crass people, with the aim of entertaining others and drawing attention to themselves. Because it is a form of insanity and it humiliates people, no one should ever come near it. It is vileness to lie to draw attention or to act as a know-it-all and a show off.

441

It is very important that Turkey has a European appearance. See that even the most conventionalist, most Orthodox ones want to go to Europe and like Europe. That means theirs is a way of life that is more suitable to human nature. There has to be arts, there have to be beautiful roads, beautiful buildings, beautiful people. Life should be beautiful. That is how human nature is. If what they have been saying was true, they would have gone to the Middle East, to Egypt, to Pakistan, to India or Iran. But they don't. Furthermore some of them hate it there, they don't want it in any shape or form.

442

If the bigoted appearance in Turkey increases, it would turn Turkey into a Middle Eastern country and crush her tragically. They would do exactly what they have done to Syria and Iraq. But if Turkey attains a European appearance, she would find her value and be appreciated by the whole world.

443

God has given very nice secrets that would keep one's mind sane. Before all else, one's commitment to God would keep away all immorality, all abnormality. Putting one's trust in God would take away the torment one does to himself. When he becomes patient, he would become friends with everyone around. When one is loyal, he would attain a personality everyone would love. When one criticizes himself, he keeps his sanity intact. When one is criticized by others, he becomes a rational, stable and loveable person.

444

Without criticism, the lower-self makes one insane, it makes one crazy. A Muslim should criticize himself and have himself criticized by others. When one does that, he would turn into a very well-balanced, reasonable, normal person. If he has mental instability, that goes away. That insanity dissolves, that aggression goes away. His inconsistencies, his tormenting himself goes away.

445

If one is disturbed by the advice he is given, that is an evil disturbance. Advice has a poisonous effect on unbelievers. They don't even want to listen to the advice they are given.

446

Muslims should feel content when they are criticized, they should not feel sick; all those feelings are from the satan. Just like satan is disturbed by the prayers Muslim perform, just like it is disturbed by the remembrance of God, it is disturbed by the advice given as well.

447

I congratulate all Shias because of their love towards the system of the Mahdi, because of their fastidiousness in preserving accounts about Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). The related hadiths completely conform to the incidents in the End Times. Hadiths related by Hazrat Ali (ra), hadiths that are miraculous and that have been realized openly, all come from Shias. You cannot find those accounts in the Ahl al-Sunnah sources.

448

God loves those who love Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). God makes those who hold on to the system of the Mahdi happy. There is a blessing in the system of the Mahdi.

449

One would not know himself otherwise; in that respect criticism is a perfect blessing. However satan has turned it into a spiral of disaster and pain. Criticism has a very devastating impact on some people. They are devastated and almost lose their human feelings. Look at the pain satan inflicts. Look at how satan manipulates something that is actually in one's favor, how it shows such a beautiful blessing.

450

Being criticized by another is like looking into the highest quality mirror. How nice it is. You can preen yourself, tidy yourself. Finding someone to criticize you is as valuable as gold, it is a great blessing. But criticisms should be honest and sincere, and should not be done to disturb and offend. Criticisms should be justified.

451

Other countries should help Jordan. The number of refugees in Jordan has reached about one and a half million. They should be given money, supported with financial means, food and clothing. Wealthy Arabic countries are constantly funneling money to weapons. Instead of spending money on weapons, spend it on those wretched people in need so that they can find relief.

452

The reason why they are leery of my explanations about the system of the Mahdi to this extent is because I am talking about it without any superstitions and I convince them that it is true. Or else, if I were to talk about it with superstitions, they would have loved it. That would be no problem for them and no one would be angry. No one would ever object to it.

453

The first condition of life is love. Like water, like air. You die when you cannot let air in, you die without love, the world dies, the universe dies. It is not possible to live without love. There is no bargaining in love. There is only self-sacrifice and altruism. You do not stoop to little things.

454

Love brings about mercy and compassion. Then you can't kill anyone, you can't hang anyone or chop up anyone. You simply solve everything with rationality and science. You solve everything with love and persuasion.

455

Love is the most important social and political foundation for the whole world. Love is the source of healing. Without that, the whole system is disrupted, both politics, trade and law decline and everything falls down. A cruel spirit prevails everywhere.

456

They consider love as luxurious, as if it is something that would be nice if attained. But that is not the case; without love, wars break out; terror, anarchy and violence breaks out. No one is safe in a loveless environment.

457

Turkey should never give credit to bigotry. Turkey should be a country in which modern people reside, like Norway, like The Netherlands, like Denmark. All the cities should be like Paris and London. There should be music, there should be paintings, statues, beauties. All the cities should be like art galleries. There should be ladies wearing revealing clothes and also ladies covering their heads. There should be an environment in which the utmost freedom of speech and beauty is encouraged and enjoyed.

458

Egocentric people should try it and they will see. They will become reasonable, balanced people whereas they were half-insane before. Everyone would see, people around them would see it. The only condition being self-criticism.

459

An egocentric person couldn't even endure or tolerate a justified criticism. He becomes purple, flushed of face, he starts to have a stomachache, high blood pressure and he becomes insane. That is because criticism offends his ego, because his whole body becomes his ego, that creates an immense allergy in his body. But when he criticizes himself, his ego would be shuttered and would stop assaulting his body. His body would be soothed and calmed. He would regain his mental balance. After that he will be able to think and talk rationally and reasonably.

460

Almighty God says, "Truly, man is unbridled, seeing himself as self-sufficient." What does seeing himself as self-sufficient mean? He sees himself as perfect. For instance, if you criticize him somehow, he instantly lashes out because he caught that disease.

461

The best attitude that can be adopted against egocentricity and haughtiness is to be submissive towards God, to put trust in God, to be patient and humble and to avoid being egocentric. The shortest remedy to that in the Qur'an is self-criticism. One should criticize himself both while he is alone and while he is in the company of others.

462

If a person is very egocentric, if he likes himself a lot, if he has an extreme air of haughtiness, all his body becomes egocentric. The whole body becomes his ego. His whole body becomes sick. I mean he becomes insane. That is what happened to Pharaoh, to Nimrod. They lost their sanity. When that is the case, satan settles in their body. They become unable to act rationally and in a balanced manner. They lose the ability to be reasonable.

463

A honest, loving, affectionate gaze is nourishment for a Muslim. This beauty is also mentioned in Heaven. There is a reference to ladies whose eyes are turned only towards their spouses, ladies looking at their spouses with passionate eyes. Their gazes to their spouses is the first priority, God drew attention to in the Qur'an.

464

Islam means love, compassion, peace, quality, beauty, democracy, deep thinking, arts and science. It is all kinds of beauty. But there is no such understanding in bigotry. There is only cruelty in bigotry. They turn the world into a living hell for yourself and then try to turn it into a living hell for others as well.

465

The traditional orthodox system is a disastrous and awful system and it causes hatred for Muslims all over the world. That hatred is increasing gradually and because of those traditional Orthodox people who call themselves Muslims, the extreme right is getting stronger in Europe. They are harming themselves and Islam in the process and they're also hurting all inoffensive people.

466

The state should not leave the youth to their own devices. The PKK doesn't do leave them to their own devices: They educate and raise consciousness among them in their own ways. They educate them with a Marxist consciousness, a communist way of thinking, with a terrorist, Stalinist mindset. There is no response against that in the curriculum of the state. When that's the case they are making headway unilaterally.

467

There should be a strong cultural struggle against terror and a strong struggle to equip our youth with a national conscience. Before all else there should be courses on national consciousness, courses three times a week on national consciousness. Courses on topics such as what is communism, what is Marxism, how can a struggle be given, what is terrorism? What are the wrongful aspects of Darwinism and materialism? These should be taught.

468

An incomprehensible courage, an incomprehensible boldness should be shown against terror and a comeuppance that our enemies would never expect should be given. You should make it felt that you are insane about that. If you give a calm and languid struggle, they would continue to martyr our soldiers and police officers. But once you start pushing back firmly, they start begging.

469

It is not acceptable to follow a calm, moderate policy against the PKK. A determined policy within the mainframe of the law should be followed; that is because martyrs are saintly. If we are giving martyrs every single day, that is defiance against us.

470

Look at the attention they pay to this terror and violence, look at the effort they are showing. Look at the effort they make for bloodshed. Had they given the same effort to love, this world would turn into a Heaven on earth very shortly. But of course, God should be loved. God would not turn this world into a Heaven without the love He demands. Loving God, fearing God is essential.

471

Everything will be beautiful. King Messiah - Moschiah, meaning “Shiloh” foretold in the Torah some 3,500 years ago, will actually be instrumental in the salvation of the world. We understand that we come to his time from all the portents, from the heavenly and earthly portents. The blood that is being shed is one of the portents of the appearance of Moschiah.

472

Armageddon is one of the latest, greatest portents of the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). We might watch a slowed down Armageddon, or an expedited one. But right now Armageddon is going on in the related region anyway.

473

Once the Islamic world has a leader, terror and anarchy will stop on that day and hour. Wars will stop, disasters will stop, separation will stop, disintegration will stop. Everything will be solved fundamentally.

474

Islam is a system that stops massacres; it is a system that brings love. If there is a massacre going on somewhere that is because Islam is not being practiced there, because there is no Islamic Union. Would this terror, this anarchy, be possible if Muslims had a leader? No.

475

Hypocrites have the ferociousness of animals. For instance their getting angry, their lack of control, their lack of wisdom is insane and even beyond that of animals. They are ferocious. God says that "...they are like cattle, even further astray".

476

Muslims should not support hypocrites and sick people. They should certainly support sincere people. They should do so even if doesn't serve their own interests.

477

The morality demonstrated in the Qur'an is the most superior, the most profound morality. The most beautiful form of life in which a deepest wisdom would come about.

478

Unbelievers and hypocrites demonstrate herding behavior, just like the animals. They act jointly. Just like reindeers, bison herds, unbelievers behave in herds as well. When they see a danger coming, they attack like a bison herd. Unbelievers behave in herds like that as well.

479

Muslims should be very perceptive, very foresighted and very wise, they should be vigilant; apathy would do them no good. Water sleeps but the hypocrites never rest. That disease might develop any moment. Muslims might explain to them the truth in all their honesty but they ridicule them inside and don't even listen to them.

480

Sometimes the acts of Muslim might look very much like the acts of a hypocrite but that doesn't make him a hypocrite, it only means that he caught a disease. When you save him from that disease, he would go on as a Muslim. But when you apply the same treatment to the hypocrite - there is a grave danger here - the hypocrite might appear as if he is saved as well, but he continues his ways underhandedly.

481

Hypocrites not only think nothing of the situation of the Muslims in the world but also are pleased with the fact that they do not shoulder those difficulties and responsibilities. They imagine themselves as very wise. They think that they are prudent and keep away from Muslims, keep away from incidents. They say, "I am really wise, I acted very sagaciously" unaware of the troubles that they've dragged themselves into and of the blessings bestowed upon Muslims. By doing so they proceed forward on their path in to the depths of Hell and in the meantime Muslims' reward, the Heaven they will be given, will shine even more.

482

Hypocrites- in their own minds- try to deceive the Prophet (saas) with the Qur'an. They say, "Doesn't God tell us to protect our families? And God shows us trade as a lawful path and that is what I am doing." Alright, but you need to look for the act that would please God the most, you need to be honest and sincere. There are Muslim women, inoffensive Muslims, being martyred and here you are talking about your trade. Do not act in infamy, come to your senses and stop acting foolishly. People are being killed there, Muslims are being martyred; is your trade more important than that? Are you that foolish?

483

Hypocrites ask the Prophet to excuse them, saying, ´Our houses are exposed,´ when they were not exposed. What do they mean by saying that their houses are exposed? They mean to say, "I have a family at home, I need to take care of them, of their education. I need to bring food to my spouse at home, I need to take care of her. My store is exposed as well. My trade is mired down, I need to take care of that." Well my brother, alright, but they are killing, martyring Muslims all over. Is your store more important or their being martyred?

484

Many people are not at all concerned with the command of Islam, they only are concerned with their own lives. They only want to get married, have children, set up a business but also want use Muslims, use being a Muslim, in the meantime. They mainly focus on their own ambitions; Islam is a background they can make use of for them, to have a circle, to make trade and to get married.

485

If you run after the transient world, God would make it constantly run away from you and the world would then become a trouble for you. However, the world would become beautiful with self-sacrificing people. For instance, our Prophet (saas) was very altruistic and selfless. His companions were very altruistic and selfless. None of them were self-seeking. Societies with self-seeking people collapse.

486

Many people are after their own pleasure and their own joy and use Islam to that end. They keep busy with their trade, looking for ways to eat, drink and travel, to get married and get on with their lives. This is the mindset of a great portion of the Islamic world. That is why God ruins the Islamic world. God wants them to turn towards Him yet they do not. God says, "You are after the transient blessings of this world but the Hereafter is the abode that is auspicious and beautiful, if you only knew."

487

Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will create an enlightened world and bring modernity to the Islamic world. An environment in which women will enjoy freedom, in which the youth will be free, in which music, paintings, statutes and all other forms of art will be enjoyed in the utmost beauty will be possible with Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).

488

Turkey should be like a European country, like Norway, like Denmark, like The Netherlands. There should be an environment in which women are free and arts, science and aesthetics are prevalent to the utmost. Then Europe and the US would not want a PKK state in the region and Turkey would be enough for them.

489

Armageddon started with the Iraq War and is progressing slowly. More than one and a half million people have been martyred in Iraq, 400,000 in Syria and hundreds of thousands in Afghanistan. These are all the footfalls of Armageddon and it is going on extensively right now as well.

490

God protects and nurtures Muslims. Sometimes Almighty God takes them to His Sight. Just like He took the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) to His Sight, just like He took the Prophet John (pbuh) and the Prophet Zechariah (pbuh) to His Sight as martyrs, but that would all be for the good of Muslims in any case.

491

No one is born a PKK militant but becomes one later on, becomes one with the education they are giving him. If you stop that Darwinist-materialist education, if you teach them the atrocities of Stalinism and communism, you win them over. It is as easy as that. Instead of killing the man, you should kill the idea, the evil in his mind. If you kill the satan inside his brain, you win over the man.

492

An intellectual struggle should be carried out against both the PKK and ISIS. ISIS is recruiting new militants by training them day in and day out. No one is born an ISIS militant, they become one later on. How does it happen? It happens with education. So you educate them with the truth and make them find the right path.

493

The fruit plant recognizes atoms; it recognizes the iron atom. For instance, when a certain milligram of it is completed, when it reaches the amount of iron it should contain, it says "that is enough." When it takes in the necessary amount of magnesium, it doesn't take any more. When it takes in the necessary amount of calcium, when it reaches that ratio particular to that fruit, it doesn't take in any more.

494

God has created and adorned fruits so beautifully. Many people do not appreciate them. However, their intelligence and expertise is millions of times more than man. Man can never be able to give a grape that shape, that taste, nor will man ever be able to establish that intricate balance of calcium, magnesium and zinc in it.

495

Let us become the most modern country of the world. Let us have a really modern state structure. Let us put ladies first. Let us become the most advanced country in music, in arts and aesthetics. A bigoted, conservative appearance does not suit us. That is the reason why they want to annihilate Turkey, that is the reason why they are opening their doors to the PKK.

496

The PKK has caused so much pain to Muslims for about 40 years. They established a dominance in a considerably big region within the borders of Turkey. They have surrounded our border externally in the Southeast. Ignoring all these and pitting Turkish soldiers against ignorant and uninformed Muslims would be a grave mistake.

497

As Turkey, we should not get involved in a system that would drag us into a conflict with Muslims, by no means. It is religiously unlawful to shed Muslim blood; it would bring inauspiciousness and would be a grave disaster. While there is the dissension of the PKK, sending our soldiers out against Muslims would be a grave mistake.

498

Islamic Union is not something that could be attained by implementing a plan or a project. While incidents take place in Syria, in Iraq, God also gives us the signs with the comets foretold in the hadiths. These are not things people can do. We cannot place a two-tailed comet to the sky. These incidents take place and progress completely as they are ordained in destiny.

499

The system of the Mahdi is not something people should be afraid of. The system of the Mahdi is an age and a system where the beauties of love, joy and life will be experienced so much so that our Prophet (pbuh) says that those in the grave will envy this life and those who are alive will want to live a very long life.

500

The antichrist is the enemy of everything that is beautiful. The antichrist has it's hooks into bigotry, so bigots also become the enemies of everything that is beautiful.

501

The antichrist is the enemy of beauty, the enemy of cities, of furniture, animals and plants. The antichrist is the enemy of man first and foremost, but even before that, it is the enemy of God. It destroys everything God created, everything it sees that is beautiful. It destroys living beings, it destroys goods, it destroys animals and plants.

502

Bigots are paralyzed when they see beauty. Their lives are all filthy. Their wives are awful; their food is awful; their homes, their speech, their mouths, their shoes are awful, everything they have is filthy. Because they are not used to high quality, beautiful people, they go into a shock when they see them and they cannot get over it.

503

There is immense opposition against religion in newspapers, on the radio, in the streets, among families, in many different spheres. A Muslim preserving his faith despite all that would be attaining a lot of good deeds.

504

The talk of evil people, of whisperers that instill apprehensions are all very favorable in respect of the trials Muslims are subjected to. They are all specifically created by God.

505

The atrocious words, attacks, preparations of traps, villainy and all sorts of nastiness of evil people are actually blessings organized and created by God as special opportunities that would increase the good deeds one attains.

506

The existence of atheists, all their writings, their speeches mocking religion are there to increase the good deeds Muslims attain. As one continues in his faith despite all these, that makes him more valuable.

507

Time in Heaven will be endless for Muslims. That is because they are carrying God's Soul. God's Soul never dies; just like there is no death for God, there is no death for His Soul either. God says that He breathed His Soul into man.

508

According to the hadiths, the disasters will become so violent that people will be preoccupied with their own troubles. Everyone would be worn down thinking about their personal interests. Incidents will escalate immeasurably. The appearance of Imam Mahdi (pbuh) is imperative for the salvation of Muslims: There is no other way.

509

Muslims are killing Muslims: All this would end if Muslims have a leader. With the Islamic Union, all Muslims will be saved. They will be saved on that day and hour. A spiritual leader, a leader elected with a loving bond would stop all the terror and all the groups of anarchy. That will spread a spirit that takes love and brotherhood as its basis to the whole Islamic world and everyone will see that they are protective friends of one another.

510

It is religiously unlawful to resist the Islamic Union. It is a religious obligation for Muslims to select a leader. Every delay causes the sin that falls upon one to increase in folds. Muslims become responsible for every person killed, for every inoffensive Muslim suffering. That is because they persistently reject the Islamic Union, they persistently assume an attitude against the system of the Mahdi. As they assume such an attitude against the system of the Mahdi, the murders, the deaths, are all increasing in folds.

511

What one would be doing in his lifetime is already defined in his destiny. What will happen is already preordained in destiny but he worries nevertheless, yet God has created everything in the best way possible. What is the sense of this worry? I mean there is no logic behind it and there is no rational explanation for that worry. That is because everything has already happened anyway. You are worrying in vain. Almighty God has created the best in everything.

512

Information does not flow to the brain out of the blue. The brain should be disciplined; it should be educated. It is not possible to do by sitting back, one needs to work for it. Thinking is an act of worship, just like prayers.

513

The reason why that little child washed ashore is because Muslims didn't select a leader, because they did not decide to unite. But the most important point in the decision to unite is to elect a leader. Everyone, all the heads of states keep saying, "Let us unite," without selecting a leader. Select your leader and then see if everyone unites or not? If you say, "This is our leader" that means unity is accomplished.

514

The most obvious reflection of the lack of knowledge in Muslims is their not accepting unity and their not electing a leader to lead them. If they unite, everything will be solved on the spot. Neither terror, nor anarchy, no fighting, no Muslim massacres would ever happen. These incomprehensible massacres and pains are taking place every single day because of their inability to elect a leader.

515

God tells us to put our trust in Him and to submit to Him. Trust in God would only be attained with concentration, with faith and determination; it doesn't happen out of the blue. It's not like one can say, "I am a Muslim so I should be given that trust in God." One needs to strive and work for it; only then God gives that feeling to him.

516

God tells us to think deeply. That is because when one thinks deeply, Almighty God bestows special knowledge. I mean, thinking deeply is an act of worship. When one intends to think deeply, God gives that person a special knowledge of deepening and that person lives in the comfort of that. But knowledge does not come without thinking, on its own. Knowledge does not come without showing an effort.

517

Possessing a deterrent power is essential in the struggle against terror. Every police officer should be given automatic weapons against the PKK. And they should carry at least 200 or 300 bullets and at least three or four grenades; that would be incredibly deterrent. The PKK wanders around with bazookas, but our police have only simple guns, how is that acceptable? Police should be armed like an armory.

518

The region would accept the notion of Turkish Islamic Union. But they would never accept the hegemonic mindset of the US. There will be no more Ottomans, no more Seljuk Empire yet again. There will be no return to the Oğuzhan period, to the Sultan Alparslan period. What will happen? We will head towards the future. What is the future? It is the system of the Mahdi.

519

I have said that great incidents will take place. We will strive hard to prevent things, but things will happen nevertheless. They thought that we were telling stories when we talked about the End Times but the End Times are at our door now. That means what I've said is the truth. They cannot say that they haven't seen, they haven't heard, they didn't understand; even the one who doesn't see at all has started to see and the one who doesn't hear at all has started to hear. Until 2019, there will be no eye that is not opened, no eye that doesn't see.

520

God led the deep state in the Ottoman Empire. God is the One leading the deep states in Russia and the US. The deep states cannot move even one millimeter beyond what God has ordained. Just like the electrons revolving around an orbit at a certain speed and are never allowed to step out of that orbit, the deep states are not able to step out of the orbit ordained for them as well. They are not able to take a step or make a speech on their own accord.

521

It is the greatest insult to call a Kurdish citizen a PKK militant. Kurdish people are my bosom friends, my gist, my blood, my brothers. The PKK, on the other hand, is the army of the inglorious that gathers together all those ignominious, foul ones in the world. I would not let anyone insult the Kurdish people.

522

By saying "love is happiness", "love is the remedy" we are smashing the brain of Satan. Love is the word that disturbs Satan the most, the word that it hates the most.

523

Animosity against a certain country, a certain race, a certain religion is not acceptable. A moral understanding, a spirit that loves and respects and looks out for each and every one of them should prevail everywhere.

524

The countries with presidential systems were already disunited before they accepted the presidential system and that system united them. But there is no example of a country that formerly had a unitary structure and then switched to a presidential system only to then become disunited.

525

They say that one cannot see without the eye, don't they? Alright; then what is it that sees the electric signals inside the brain as three dimensional and colored images? What is it then? It doesn't have an eye, it doesn't have nerves, etc. It only looks into those electric signals and sees three dimensional images.

526

The moment trouble comes onto someone is very valuable. That is a beautiful moment of trial. Muslims should not let that opportunity pass by and they should say, "O my Lord, I come from You and I will return to You. I am Yours, You are the One Who creates everything. The trouble that came on to me is ready in Your Sight before it ever happened to me. I am ready for every type of trial You will give me. I am truly in need of any good You have in store for me. Bestow upon me the honor of living through this trial in beauty." Those around him should also be congratulating him for that trial. It is not right to dither.

527

Seventy veils conceals Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), he is very difficult to see. He is concealed in such a way that even Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will not be able to see himself. That is how Almighty God conceals him. The Torah commentator Rabbis say, “His mother, his father, his family would not be able to recognize Moschiach Mahdi." He is that much concealed.

528

The world turned against Israel. Israel should become religious and turn to God. That is a divine warning from God. That is also mentioned in the Torah; God tells them that He would spread fear in their hearts, make them humiliated and oppressed wherever they go in the world and that they would be subjected to violence if they do not return to the origin of the Torah. The salvation of Judaism is in piety.

529

God loves colorfulness and liveliness. Within that colorful world, there are illnesses, problems, incidents, conflicts, brawls, oppressions, distresses and hardships. God loves it when one passes through all these things and rises above them.

530

The government should protect and watch over the rights of women, freedom, democracy, music, arts and everything that is beautiful. The government should look out for quality and aesthetics and state that "these are the characteristics of the Turkish Nation."

531

Breaking the leg of Satan everywhere he steps foot is one of the characteristics of the Mahdi. Wiping out the footfalls of fascism, making the whole world taste freedom, joy, the festive spirit and joy of faith, creating an amazing level of social justice are all the characteristics of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).

532

Loyalty is for God. The cost of loyalty is very hard for a faithless person. It would get a person into trouble. It brings plenty and radiance to Muslims, it brings beauty. It is an immense beauty and bravery. Every single minute one shows patience would shatter his bones and cause a great suffering. Patience is shown only with faith. That is why people are obliged to the Qur'an.

533

One cannot have a beautiful morality simply by saying, 'Let me have good morality.' Good morality can only be attained by fearing God, by loving God. Otherwise one would not be generous. He would feel pain inside when he gives something to someone. Forgiving would make him enraged. Without faith, without the fear of God, forgiving becomes very unnerving.

534

The most reasonable, the most perfect arrangement that is needed for people to live happily in a community is defined in the Qur'an.

535

When the Qur'an is carefully studied, we see that all of the perfect rules that could make it possible to live in this world like it is Heaven are very thoroughly covered. That is to say, when the Qur'an is practiced completely, individuals lead a perfect life. They become very stable and societies lead a very perfect life as well.

536

With weakness of faith comes weakness in morality. That is because one learns good morality from the Qur'an. Without Islam, one would not try to be patient. He would say, 'Why should I be patient?' 'Why should I be generous? Why should I self-sacrificing?' And that would ruin a person in every aspect.

537

The most important thing for a Muslim is to have a strong faith. Weakness in faith ruins people. Weakness of faith is the biggest problem in the world. At least 70% of the Qur'an refers to weakness of faith and to the importance of the facts leading to faith.

538

Have a look at some people around you, at those who do not let anyone say a single word about themselves. They come up with an explanation to every single thing they are told. They do not even accept something that should certainly be criticized about. That kind of attitude would create heavy damage and cause a very significant problem in one's psyche. Look around you and you will see; but those who criticize themselves are very lenient. Such people are very stable and very consistent. You can see that around you as well. That is a miracle of the Qur'an.

539

In order to be stable and reasonable one should certainly criticize himself. Even if it is once in a while, he should certainly criticize himself and one should do so when he is in the company of others. Only then one could become a stable, reasonable person. That is a miracle of the Qur'an. A solid, tangible miracle.

540

If one does not criticize himself and sees himself as sufficient and above criticism, he would become insane. A Muslim should certainly criticize himself and have others criticize him. This is necessary for one's sanity or else one's mental health would be disrupted; his judgment and reasoning would be impaired. His foresight and perception would be blocked. Have a look at those around you, you will see. Avoiding criticisms would cause instability and would prevent one to be reasonable.

541

Love is a great power because God has placed love in the nature of man. Satan is trying to make us step out of our nature. By doing so, Satan has bit off more than it can chew. We will crush Satan under our feet and love will prevail in the world.

542

Women are flower- like beings. What is the sense in causing them pain and suffering? Let them live beautifully in this world. Only then both Europe and the US would open their doors wide to Turkey and no longer support these villains of the PKK.

543

There is no ambition of ownership in the morality described in the Qur'an. Everything belongs to everyone; brotherhood comes to the forefront. Everyone shares everything they have with their brothers. They will share everything they have, everything they eat, they drink, they wear, everything they own. There will be no such thing as hoarding goods, acting ambitiously, etc. These are all things that they have come up with later on saying, "You are to give one fortieth of the gold you own," etc. There is no such thing. The Qur'an tells us to give whatever is surplus to our actual needs.

544

The solution to persecution is love, it is peace and rationalism, knowledge and science; the solution is the struggle against radicalism that would be given with the facts of the Qur'an. There might be some who feign ignorance right now, but in the very near future, they will all understand as the incidents that are taking place get even bigger. Write down what I have just said, you will see that things will happen exactly as said. Everything will happen exactly as said.

545

Presidential systems all around the world are systems that are open to federalism, systems that could bring about disintegration of countries. There is no system in the world that is closed to federalism.

546

An operation should be carried out against the YPG. They have taken hold of the whole Turkish border from one end to the other and they are at the last stage, it is only a matter of time for them to reach the Mediterranean. They want to severe our ties with the Islamic world, with the rest of the Turkish world by creating a giant track in between. We should not let that happen. The necessary steps should be taken right away.

547

Do not look for the cursed ones among Jews and do not look for the cursed ones among Christians. The cursed ones are the ones who commit crime and persist in those crimes. Inoffensive people would not be cursed.

548

God's cursing a nation as a whole would not befit God's justice. There is no nation cursed by God. There might be individual people God cursed because of the offenses they have committed. Those who commit crimes are the ones who are cursed. Or else what is the sense in putting the blame on children? What is the sense in blaming the descendants of people?

549

The claim that Jews are cursed is a lie. There is no such thing. Those who behaved immorally at that time were the ones cursed. That is it. The door to repentance is open. One is cursed only if he is determined in immorality and in persecuting others. Wouldn't Muslims be cursed if they acted immorally? They would be cursed as well.

550

God loves our praying. Praying seems like an act of worship that is ignored. As if one should perform prayers but it is alright if one prays or not. Actually praying is crucial.

551

We need to attach importance to praying to God; prayers should be sincere. Not in the form of customary Arabic prayers: They memorize these prayers, yet do not know the meaning of what they are saying or their hodjas recite the prayer and everyone says "amen" yet no one understands what is said. That is not acceptable, everyone should pray sincerely as they feel inside.

552

Religion is life itself. Religion and life is in one another; there is music in religion, there is fun in religion. There is the best kind of food and beverage in religion. Everything that is beautiful and clean has a place in religion. Some regard religion as a mystical ceremony. Once that ceremony ends, life starts in their opinion. That is not acceptable. Religion is found throughout the whole of life.

553

People searching for love should train themselves to be loveable. The person you are facing might be a superior person, one with good morality who has trained himself very well and it is absolutely natural for you to love him, everyone would love such a person. What is important is for you to see if you are loveable or not. Better yourself, see how you serve God, see if you are a man of cause, see what your commitment to Islam and the Qur'an is like. See to which extent you are able to strain yourself under difficult conditions. As described in the Qur'an, see if you are ready for a steep path.

554

Some people thought that they could be comfortable when they move away from God but they saw that God devastated the world instead. Actually, they –in their twisted minds- imagined that they could test God. That is what God does in return. They have tested Him and saw the results in the First World War and in the Second World War. When people do not live according to God's Book, that is what happens.

555

Muslims are able to get deep in faith, in the love of God. God did not put any limit to profundity.

556

All the Turkish states and the Islamic world have had a longing for Turkey to take the lead for the Turkish -Islamic Union for many years. Federalism, which would come about with the presidential system, would be a system that would rule out this possibility, may God forbid.

557

If the system [in Turkey] is switched to a presidential system, that would bring about federalism. If Turkey is divided into pieces, there will be no meaning left in Turkey and it would be dealing a great blow to the Islamic Union. We are the last hope of the Islamic world, of the Turkish world.

558

One takes pleasure in pleading with God; one feels happy to do so. Loving the Almighty is a great pleasure for a helpless being such as man; God says, "I hear your pleading when you pray and I respond to your pleadings." What a pleasing, what a soothing feeling this is for such a helpless being. And God surely responds to every prayer.

559

Religion is like a user's manual on how to use this world. It teaches us what we should do for the Hereafter and for this world. Or else we wouldn't have known how to behave.

560

One should have only good opinions about God; God should never be forsaken. Good opinions about God must not ever be given up even under the most difficult conditions.

561

They do not put their trust in God at times of difficulty. Muslims should prepare themselves for this beforehand. With a very strong faith, a determined spirit, a profound love and a deep closeness, one should have love settled in his heart wholeheartedly.

562

It is very easy to learn love. People instantly embrace love. Right now, this issue has been dragged on to this extent in the world because no one steps up as a pioneer and persuades others. Otherwise, love is the zestiest blessing in the world. Human nature is created according to love. Even the cells understand love.

563

The most disastrous aspect of communism is that there is no sense of love, no compassion in it. I mean there is no love of God, no warmth.

564

Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will start a festive period. The hearts of the people will become rich in an instant. They will give what they have to one another, they will share their money and their means and everyone will watch over one another. An immense richness will come about. Goods will be distributed profusely. The whole ummah will rejoice. The whole world, the poor and the needy, those living in misery, everyone will rejoice.

565

The festivities of the Islamic world will start with the system of the Mahdi. There will not be a single person in need. Goods will constantly be distributed among them.

566

Because we have ideologically crushed the PKK and made their real faces be seen by the public, they do not have the courage to appear in public. Everyone despises the PKK. In the past, they were exalting them in their minds and presenting them as if they were "sacred".

567

The Islamic community is a festive community. Let us say you are walking in the street and you get tired. You go and knock the door of a random house and say, "As-Salam alaykum." You would be invited in and the host would welcome you, saying, "Come in and dine with us." When night falls, the host would ask you to stay the night and if you like it, you do. This is how the Muslim community is; this is how it was at the time of the companions of our Prophet (saas). Later on, these niceties were forgotten in time.

568

If God loves you, even if you burn furiously in a fire, your heart would be like a bed of roses. No one would refrain from fire; what is troubling and distressing is losing God's amity. They do not get that properly. They take it as if it is something like fearing fire. As a matter of fact, you would be losing God's affection for all eternity and that is a terrible plague.

569

When talking about fear of God, they take it as if it is something like fearing weapons or blades. Actually fear of God is refraining from offending God, from losing God's love.

570

In the Qur'an, we see that God takes performing prayers as a measure. That is because in the verses, the people of the hell are asked; 'What has led you into the Hell Fire?' And they respond “They will answer: We were not of those who prayed." That means it is a very crucial measure. Performing prayers is a very joyous, beautiful, bountiful and luminous act of worship. It is a blessing from God.

571

A Muslim would never want to give up his faith; he would be terrified. That unwillingness to give up faith is faith. Or else whisperings might come and go but a Muslim believes in his subconscious as well. Once he believes in God faith settles in his heart.

572

Faith is the sincere belief in one's subconscious. Or else one's mind might come and go. I mean all kinds of opinions might pass through one's mind. For instance, one might think if something is right or wrong; these are ideas inside one's brain. Ideas would be like a storm in one’s mind. They have nothing to do with faith. They are called the whisperings of satan. Faith is something settled in, I mean a sincere conviction that is intertwined with, one's consciousness, one’s good conscience.

573

For one who spent all his life as a Muslim, it would be the whispering of satan to be concerned saying something like, "Would I be able to preserve my faith at the moment of death?" There is no need to take that serious. No such thing would happen. I mean a wholehearted, subconscious faith is the basis. Or else something might happen to one's mind, such whisperings have no validity. God would look at one in all his integrity.

574

Some Muslims say, "I am a good person, I would not be troubled with difficulties." Actually, that would be very weird. If you are seriously favored in a testing environment, it would annul the free will of mind. It would even take the free will of your mind. You are being tested as well. That is why prophets have diseases as well.

575

Clinging on to this world with ambition turn into an insane effort in people. When that is the case, the world runs away from them and they chase after it. Trade runs away from them, they chase after that trade. Money runs away from them and they chase after the money. That is exactly the opposite in Muslims. Muslims go towards God and while they go towards God, the goods and money chases after them.

576

The way for hearts to find relief is in serving Islam, in understanding the Qur'an, in loving God a lot, in fearing God, in constantly being close to God, in always thinking positive about God. It is unacceptable to not think positively about God; anyone who does that would be embarrassed every single time. One fails to think positive because he doesn't understand the wisdom behind it.

577

Keeping away from Muslims means keeping away from God. Keeping away from the Qur'an means keepng away from God. Keeping away from the cause of Islam means keeping away from God.

578

Whereever you go, you won't be able to walk away from God. God is nearer to you than your jugular vein. Where are you running to? One might assume that he can get away from God, from Islam, from the Qur'an by running, but he cannot.

579

You make a run for trade, leaving Muslims aside, but even if you gain something from that worldly trade what you gain would be left in this world. And you would pass away from this world in no time.

580

To listen to our Prophet (saas) they need to gather in a place. They say, "There is a commercial opportunity here, the goods have arrived, and everyone rushes about and leaves our Prophet (saas) standing”. They will have to give account of every single step they have taken while rushing about. They will have to give account of every single minute, every single second of leaving our prophet (saas) standing.

581

From the moment you get on a plane, when you sit in that plane, when you get off that plane, while you wander around the streets, God will ask you, "Why did you keep away from Muslims, why did you remain aloof to Islam, why did you not spread God's religion?" That is because God says that "Muslims are not distracted by trade or commerce from the remembrance of God." Yet you are distracted.

582

Every time one gets away from Islam, from the Qur'an, from Muslims, every single second is written as a sin against you, every single second. You will answer for every single second. Keeping away from Islam, from the Qur'an, from Muslims is unlawful. You might assume that it is something easy, but you would have to give an account for every such single second in the Hereafter.

583

The greatest mistake is when a person gets sick, he takes some medicine and thinks, "I can get over this disease with this medicine." In fact one should honestly say, "Oh Lord, make this medicine instrumental in my healing." Or one gets injured, something happens and he puts on an antibiotic saying, "Alright, this will do it." But that is not how it should be, you should say, "My Lord, make this instrumental". Otherwise you would be idolizing that medicine. God is the One Who creates that medicine, Who gives that medicine that power to heal. God is the One Who shows that image inside your brain.

584

God says 'Muslims are brothers.' (Surat Al-Hujurat, 10) You are their protective friend and guide, you are not allowed to leave them in any kind of difficulty. You are responsible for everything about them. The whole of society, everyone is responsible for one another. Then, an environment like heaven would come about.

585

Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is the one with the highest conscience. He is not a politician. He merely is a teacher of love. He makes sure that everyone loves one another and does away violence and terror. He brings on love.

586

To show quality to people, Ataturk personally put it into practice on himself and on those around him. He showed how to dance a waltz, how to dress up and the jauntiest, the most beautiful of ties, shirts, jackets and everything. He said this is how you should be and set an example for our people.

587

No movement against the system of the Mahdi could ever be successful. Any movement that rejects the second coming of the prophet Jesus Messiah (pbuh) is bound to be defeated.

588

Just like the antichrist held sway of the Islamic world with a small force, Hazrat Mahdi will unite the world that is in shambles, with a small force and he will hold sway of the whole world. This is the law of God.

589

Read the Treatise of Light because there is a spirit in it. There is the spirit of the Companions of our Prophet (saas), there is the sincere characteristic of a Muslim. It is not possible to find this in other works.

590

I see everything inside my brain. Who creates these images inside my brain? God does. For whom would be my love then? For God. I cannot love any independent being. I would be lying, I would be fooling myself. That is because all I see is what God creates for me.

591

It is not possible for a ship to sail without a captain. Waves would hit it from everywhere. The Islamic world is like a ship without a captain right now. It runs aground on the rocks and then gets caught by a storm; it is in ruins.

592

Had there been a leader in the Islamic world, would the occupation of Afghanistan be possible? Would this bloodshed in full flood in Iraq, this bloodshed in Syria be possible? No such thing would ever happen. Because Muslims have no leader, this massacre goes on in full speed.

593

There are about 1.8 billion Muslims in the world right now. Since 1924, Muslims do not have any actual leader. Christians have a leader, Jews have a leader, the Freemasons have a leader, every group has a leader. Only Islamic world has no leader and that is not acceptable.

594

We are absolutely against the violence and terror employed by ISIS, we would never accept such acts. The method we employ is love, science, culture and wisdom. But this system of ISIS stems from the ultra-orthodox understanding of Islam. We can only draw them towards the right lines with knowledge. We can only draw them towards the right lines with the Qur'an, not with bombs.

595

Turkey is the master of compassion. The refugees are suffering through great ordeals at the sea, up in the mountains and the notables of Europe do not even give them the time of the day. Turkey is the one that shows the greatest compassion. In Istanbul alone there are more refugees than in the whole of Europe. Look at the compassion of our people. We have accepted the highest number of refugees and if we had the means we would have taken them all in.

596

One would fall into heedlessness if he sees himself as self-sufficient. Criticizing one's self is one of the most acceptable acts of worship, it is one of the most beautiful characteristics of a Muslim that opens his mind. Those who do not criticize themselves become insane and lose their minds; they would be ruined. Those who criticize themselves find relief.

597

Hypocrites cannot live among unbelievers; they can only live with other hypocrites. They are such a special community. Their vileness is deeper. That is why they are sent to the deepest layer of hell.

598

Unbelievers are superior than hypocrites. Unbelievers are the lesser evil; that is because they act honestly and say that they do not believe. This is not the case for hypocrites, they hide themselves among Muslims and act treacherously. They hope for their help and try to have them crushed by providing intelligence about them. They try to have Muslims crushed by forging alliances with the unbelievers.

599

With faith, you commit to Almighty God Who is the Owner of everything and you feel wondrously at ease. For Muslims, meteorites are wandering in the sky like lambs. But for an irreligious person they are horrifying monsters. For instance, the magma underneath us is like lukewarm milk for us. But it is like hell for an irreligious person, a sizzling hell that would burn them. Our hearts are at ease because we fear only God. We know how God would command it; we know that the magma is under the command of God. We know that every single atom in the magma is invoking the name of God and that it all submits to God.

600

With what we could explain the horror, pain, misery and ugliness in the faces of the PKK militants? With their empty minds, they believe that they came into existence as a result of coincidences. They do not understand, they do not know what will happen in the universe. They see the world in a state of chaos- may God forbid- as they call it. They see life as horrifying. The future is terrifying for them; the past is terrifying as well. They have a terrifying life. Anything can happen any moment. Anything could strike the world any moment, anything could happen to them at any moment. They are horrified. They live in desolateness and despair.

601

When one invokes the name of God, feels love for God, his heart would feel relieved. That is what a Muslim lives, that is what we see. Muslims really are very happy and healthy. We look at their faces and see that they are radiant and in peace, and that their hearts are at ease. They feel the joy of being with God forever.

602

What is perfect morality? It is patience, compassion, self-sacrifice, honesty, bravery and loyalty. Without fear of God, one would fall into heedlessness. For instance, one might say that he loves God but not perform prayers, saying, "I love God, God doesn't need my prayers." He might have a lot of money but not give alms, saying, "Those in need can find it elsewhere. I do love God and money makes me happy, it helps me be close to God." Or perhaps, one does not act bravely, saying, "I should not risk my life, I am living nicely here." But in fear of God one shows courage.

603

Real love would never come to an end because it originates from Almighty God. Real love goes on in death, in the Hereafter; it goes on forever.

604

When you love someone, you don't act curtly towards that person, you don't act stingy, you do not act egotistically; you look out for that person's comfort, you have that person's best interests at heart.

605

If you act rudely, you lose love. If you behave kindly, you gain love. If one is egotistical, he loses love; if he acts in a self-sacrificing manner, love will come back instantly and it will come back even stronger.

606

You would appear as a mad person when you boast, when you become haughty. That would be very repellent and you wouldn't be loved. When you boast, when you act haughtily you make yourself unlovable. Why do you boast? Why do you act haughtily? You do so, to make people love you, right? Actually it has the exact opposite effect and you lose all the love you have.

607

People abandon religion because of the radicals. With Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) people will enter religion in droves again. But of course that would be a very fast flow. These droves will take place near the time of the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and those droves will enter Islam in masses.

608

Ingratitude is the only reason behind God's giving that many troubles in this world. Without gratitude, there would be ingratitude. All these sufferings are the retaliation of that ingratitude. Ingratitude is so horrible. It is such a grave remorselessness.

609

Some people have a tendency to leave God alone. Actually God wants to be loved, He wants to have a lot of people loving Him. If you attempt to leave God alone, then He would leave you alone as well. If you forsake God, He would forsake you as well.

610

God wants to be loved wholeheartedly. If you idolize the images God created and imagine that they have separate existence from God, if you tell such a lie, you would be fooling yourself and that would be a very foolish act. Such an act would offend God. God would then turn it into trouble, into much suffering for them.

611

Some people might be thinking that they would not be able to take pleasure if they give their love to God. Actually only then they can take the greatest pleasure; only then God would give that depth, that profundity.

612

The one you say you love is actually an image inside your brain. Who is the One Who creates them to the smallest detail? Who is the One Who makes you love and Who makes you speak? God is the One Who creates all these. I mean there is nothing that belongs to the person across from you. If you give your love to an imaginary idol instead of God, that would be the worst kind of deception: You would be deceiving yourself.

613

It would not be acceptable if love is contaminated with idolatry. For instance, one might say, "I do love my friend a lot, I do love my spouse a lot." And when then asked, "Do you love God?" he says, "I love God as well." That is not acceptable. He should say, "I love my spouse for the good pleasure of God, I love my friend for the good pleasure of God. I love them as the manifestations of God."

614

All the incidents take place as foretold in the hadiths. We will see Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and we will see the prophet Jesus Messiah as well. We will see the Islamic Union and we will all pass away after we do our duty. No one will remain here. The ones that remain the last will follow us as well, the world will be empty and then the Last Day will break loose.

615

One might be beautiful but arrogant and that beauty would not have any meaning. Beauty can also be an incitement. One might be young and beautiful but become mad with arrogance and vanity. You might see someone as ugly but that person could love madly and passionately. That person could then present a thousand times more beauty than those you call beautiful.

616

A poor person would be humble and modest. They would appreciate the value of their blessings much more. Wealth might appear to be a blessing but poverty is a great spiritual wealth as well. And that is not that much known.

617

They should show me an ugly yet faithful person. A sincere person would never be ugly; that would never happen.

618

The love of those who are in need would be far more stronger. Their passion is very nice. Those who look for real passion, real art, real beauty are among them. All the prophets came from poverty. And God made them all rich. They were the ones who experienced the most beautiful form of passion.

619

I do love Bediuzzaman Said Nursi and I am proud of that. I do love Sheikh Nazım Al-Qubrusi. I do love the Menzil community. I do love Süleyman Hilmi Tunahan. I do love His Highness Abdulbaki Erol. I do love all Muslims. I do not adopt the haughty attitude of some so-called intellectuals. I always express my love openly everywhere. Timid, cowardly, insincere attitudes always bring about disasters, inauspiciousness and nothing else.

620

When they come across a hypocrite, Muslims should immediately hold on to other Muslims. They should receive help from sound-minded Muslims. That is because they would be conversing with satan at that moment. Satan is the greatest scholar in evilness. They cannot deal with the knowledge of satan. For instance, satan instantly determines with which purpose a word is uttered, in which sense one's soul is weak, what their weaknesses are. That is why especially naive and stagnant Muslims should be protected very well. Hypocrites have such a high power of leaping and bouncing.

621

Hypocrites want Muslims to fall apart and disperse. That is because they imagine that their crime would be cleared away if Muslims disperse. I mean that would make everyone as guilty as they are and they would thus be relieved. That is why they constantly wait for an opportunity that would cause Muslims to disperse. What could they do in our age, for instance? They might use the internet, they might use computers, etc. They might use gossip and hearsay.

622

Hypocrites are so lazy, so nonchalant and so egoist that they submit their brains to the satan. Then they start admiring themselves because satan gives them amazing information. That is to say, with their verbosity, with their repartee, it is very easy for hypocrites to fool naive, stagnant- minded Muslims.

623

Hypocrites are so spineless. Actually if they were to use a little bit of will-power, they would not surrender to satan but they surrender their minds to satan. Actually they would be saved if they resisted a little bit.

624

The community of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) continues until Hijri 1506 (2082-2083 A.D.). After Hijri 1506, the form of preaching the message of religion, their system changes completely. I mean after that date, Muslims would only be able to communicate with each other with very secret, hidden symbols, because they will kill all Muslims. The Qur'an will be burned and there will be nothing left pertaining to acts of worship. They will burn down the mosques, they will demolish the Kaba'a and only the plain field of the Kaba'a will remain. They will not leave behind anything pertaining to what is holy.

625

One asks, "Why do we have difficulties in this world?" That is because otherwise people are unable to leave the world behind. This difficult environment is a must to separate hypocrites from Muslims, devout ones and the good ones. Or else everyone would power through easiness and so do the hypocrites. But in hardship, hypocrites fail and cannot power through.

626

The power of speech hypocrites have is astounding. I mean it is not possible for an ordinary person to deal with it. That is because they try to drag others to their own path every now and then. A Muslim might be taken unaware and get in their path. However, the response should always be given with the Qur'an. Because they get into that satanic mood, they talk in a satanic fashion and a Muslim might be taken unaware and get in their path. The hypocrites then start speaking with their intelligence. Actually one should respond hypocrites with wisdom against their intelligence.

627

Muslims are loyal to other Muslims. But hypocrites secretly hate Muslims and are full of themselves. The attitude of the hypocrites is just like the narcissistic attitude of satan.

628

Hypocrites deny their immorality until the last minute. They do not accept it, even in the Hereafter. They act garrulous but Almighty God stops their speech. God takes away their verbosity.

629

Hypocrites provide great advantages for Muslims. First of all, their existence increase the fervency and enthusiasm of Muslims. It increases their determination for struggling on the path of God, broadens their horizons and increases their vigilance. It mitigates their lassitude and languish in case they have such weaknesses. They become bolder and more sincere.

630

It is very important to recognize the hypocrites at early stages. Sometimes it takes a lot of time to recognize them. But either way, hypocrites increase the good deeds Muslims attain and increase their rank in Heaven. They expand their rank in Heaven.

631

Satan talks from the mouth of the hypocrites. That is why Muslims with naive hearts cannot deal with satan. Hypocrites are silver-tongued. Satan gets hold of the mouths and the brains of those hypocrites and from that point on, satan becomes the one they are dealing with, not those people across them.

632

Those with weak minds can be influenced by the hypocrites. In the Qur'an, God says "...and if they speak you listen to what they say." (Surat Al-Munafiqun; 4) Hypocrites have the gift of the gab. That is because their mouths are bound to satan.

633

Looking for the most of God's approval is something the hypocrites like the least. Hypocrites would only go for the things they like, for the things that serve their interests and leave those that do not serve their purposes aside. In their twisted minds, only the parts of the Qur'an that are in their favor are valid, only those parts that comply with their lower-selves are valid. They do not accept those parts that go against their lower-selves.

634

When one catches the sickness of hypocrisy, he only loves himself and cannot love other Muslims. Something comes over him as he dives into arrogance and he starts finding an excuse for every perversity he has. He makes an excuse for every impertinent act of his and the most dangerous aspect of hypocrisy is that they start defending themselves with the Qur'an. I mean they distort the Book with their tongues.

635

It is an abnormality if one claims that he has faith yet still lacks love for Muslims. It is savagery if one loves only himself. It is abnormal if one cannot find something to love in Muslims.

636

The greatest scourge on the right wing is that the number of sincere people among them is really few. Yet there are far more sincere ones in the left wing. The reason for the tendency in people's hearts towards the left is their tendency for sincerity. They need to be sincere. It is difficult to find loving people among the right wing; it is difficult to find sincere people among them. But you can find such people among the left wing.

637

What is obstinacy? It is immorality and cruelty. Your good conscience is convinced; then why do you dig your heels in? With whom do you try to curry favor, to whom do you act disdainfully? Feel love for your Creator. God says, "I will love you but you should show your love to Me strongly and appreciate the blessings I gave you."

638

God gives us blessings incessantly for 24 hours every day yet some people do not even want to spare half an hour of that time to God. That makes them deserving of their scourges.

639

Almighty God says, "If you forget Me, I will forget you as well." That is a disaster on its own if He forgets you. This is known to the human soul as well. When you do something good for someone and he responds with evil, when you give him blessings but he responds with malice; when you show him love and he responds with malice, when you try to appease him yet he responds with vileness. You show patience once and then twice and then three times, but then you severe all your contact with him.

640

God says, "If you forget Me, I will forget you as well." That is something known to the human soul as well; a person would want to see the most beautiful response to their love and that is also what God wants.

641

Almighty God gives blessings in abundance but the lack of thanking Him for those blessings is really irritating. You are invited to a palace, there are amazing foods, desserts, yet you simply eat them and leave yelling and kicking the door with your foot on your way out. Neither a thank you, nor any admiration; that would of course draw scourges upon you.

642

Love of God, closeness to God drives away scourges. Living by Islam meticulously, heeding the lawful and unlawful acts defined in the Qur'an is what drives away scourges.

643

People keep asking why do troubles find them? If you feel thankful, troubles would not follow you. But if you fail to do that, you would be deserving of those troubles. Muslims are of course tried, but would not be plagued.

644

God only wants love. If you begrudge that love, then God would make you feel the pains of life, death and everything else many times over.

645

Almighty God says, "If you love Me, if you appreciate Me with My true measure, then you will have strong love as well." That is because those who fail to appreciate God with His true measure couldn't know love. How could one who is unable to appreciate his Beloved know love?

646

God has unfurled wealth and glory in folds, in an incomparable manner, What God wants is "to be measured with His true measure." He says, "Love Me, know Me, be in love with Me so that I will love you back and let you live in happiness for all eternity."

647

Without love, without passion, without profundity, without real love; what are you looking for, everything loses its meaning. You know as some say, those left behind are beastly people. They are so repulsive, so disturbing to us, we have trouble calling them humans. But if one is self-sacrificing, courageous, patient, determined and brave we feel an admiration for him.

648

God always wants love. Or else neither beauty, nor anything else would have any meaning. Think about the mansions in Heaven and think about them filled with robot-like beings, think about those robot-like beings swimming in the pools of Heaven. Such a view, may God forbid, would be painful. As God bestows that blessing on humans carrying God's soul, on those who've suffered through ordeals, difficulties, an amazing beauty would be formed. With that, Heaven would find its meaning and by that, God would be measured with His true measure.

649

A Heaven resided in by robots is not an environment God likes, God doesn't want robots. One who hasn't proven his loyalty, his patience or his courage wouldn't have a feeling of self-worth in that sense. That means he couldn't regard himself as worthy and beautiful if he didn't make sacrifices, if he didn't act generously, if he didn't strive on the path of God, if he didn't do anything to show his love.

650

Anyone who demonstrates and voices that he is a supporter of the PKK should be arrested. They should build prisons that could house a hundred thousand people in total and fill them with those people. That is because that is a matter of survival for Turkey.

651

The disintegration of Turkey means the breaking loose of the Last Day. The Sun, Moon, the world would all be flattened and everywhere would turn into a vast, plain field. They should forget about it, no such thing would ever happen.

652

Satan prevents people from pronouncing the word "love". In response, everyone should insistently utter the word "love" in their speeches and in their writings. Love is the key of this world, it is the key of life. Once it is opened, the whole world would be opened.

653

Imam Huseyin's blood cannot be avenged with blood. That can only be done by making the morality of the Qur'an prevail in the world, by bringing forth Islamic Unity.

654

Use your mind, think on it, look for the wisdom and you will see a bright, luminous world. You do not pay attention to God, but you pay attention to vain things. That would offend Almighty God. They play backgammon for hours, for four or five hours. Give your mind to God, turn to God, instead.

655

God creates everything beautifully and on a plan. But one should constantly look for the wisdom behind it. If you do not see the wisdom, you would feel bored in this world. Your heart will be squeezed. But your heart will open up when you look to see that wisdom.

656

What a pleasant feeling love is; love cats, love butterflies, love people. What would you lose? Have your heart's content, you will have your heart open up, your brain will be relieved. Your mind would open up. Open them all; loving is an act of worship.

657

A woman is like a flower. Women are walking flowers, beautifully scented flowers. Just like you would show respect to a flower, just like you would protect a flower, you should protect women as well. In the Qur'an, Almighty God says that He "caused her to grow like a lovely plant… " for Hazrat Maryam.

658

Love is in the spirit of people. Hatred, rage and quarrelsomeness are horrible feelings; they would ruin one, be the end of one. One would become sick, may God forbid. One's heart cannot bear it, one becomes distressed and strained. A lack of love is a poison for the body. The body would be refreshed with love.

659

Some people appear on television programs and you see that there is a cruel environment in which everyone tears down one another. If they were to say, "All will be solved if we approach each other with love," with a single sentence. They can't say this. If they were to get used to using such terms of endearment, their sphere of influence would expand. They should talk about love at every opportunity.

660

The word "love" is not used anywhere. Say it once, say it and you will see that you will open up. Say “Bismillah” and then mention love, you will see that it will follow. Get used to saying it. Let us encourage youth, let us encourage everyone. Let us start a campaign. So that people will get used to write about and talk about love.

661

Many people were against our modernity but step by step, they've come to our modernity. That is a transitional stage. And now they will go through another stage. They will then come to a more modern line, to the real Islam as found in the Qur'an.

662

People are preaching religion wrongly. They are talking of it as a horrible and inextricable system. Praise be to God, being the radiant face of Islam, we have spoiled that plot of the satan. Or else Islamaphobia is a system that could annihilate all Muslims.

663

It would be very dangerous to dwell on people not believing in God. That is because God says, "You will come to Me all alone." There is a secret here. In this sense, what is it to us if other people believe or not? God has created us with an open conscience and God's existence is a clear fact.

664

Atheism has started to regress in Israel. It used to be very strong before. After we have distributed the Atlas of Creation in Israel, after we distributed our books in Hebrew, the return to religion has picked up speed. A return to religion has picked up speed in Europe and in the US as well; we've been instrumental in that.

665

We are the radiant face of Islam for the whole world. When those who know Islam as a horrible, introverted, loveless system that has a grudge against women, that has turned life into a horror, see Islam as we live it, when they see Islam as it was lived at the time of the Companions, they feel an admiration for Islam. And they recognize that Islam is their salvation. Otherwise, they are all in misery.

666

Religion is love, it is relief, beauty, exhilaration and joy. It enables you to use the blessings of God legitimately in the most beautiful manner. An understanding of religion which claims that it is an offense to turn right or to turn left, to look upwards or to look downwards, is not acceptable. That would devastate people make them psychopathic and cause them lose their sanity. It is cruelty to complicate religion. And they are carrying out this cruelty without being aware of it.

667

Some people think that they would get even closer to God as they complicate religion. Actually you would end up in Hell for failing to give an account for keeping people away from God's religion. One should show people the ease in religion, just like God has revealed.

668

Making religion difficult is a cruelty inflicted upon the whole world. That is because people suffer anguish when they become estranged to religion.

669

God says, "Repel the bad with something better and if there is enmity between you and someone else, he will be like a bosom friend." That means God tells us that He will reconcile the disputes and remove that enmity you have between each other.

670

Love is the most beautiful aspect of the world. It is the most beautiful aspect of life. That is because love is interconnected with faith. Those who love God would also love people as His manifestations.

671

Weak and pessimistic words are not acceptable. One needs to avoid that in general. They should talk about the solution. There is nothing to be ashamed of and it is not something they should be offended by. Love is a splendid word.

672

Some people speak about everything that could be negative yet fail to pronounce the remedy for it. They need to give utterance to that remedy with a single word; that word is “love”. Everyone should make their mouths get used to pronounce the word love. The only solution for this sickness, for this disaster in the world, is love.

673

Some claim that they are against war, yet they still support the PKK. How could you be against war then? What does the PKK do with those weapons they have? They martyr our people. So you are not against war, you are simply lying. You cannot be pro-peace if you are supporting armed gangs.

674

Some youngsters imagine that the more they fight, the more they make innuendos, the more they would appear to have a strong character. How could one who doesn't know about love be strong in character? First of all, one needs to know love in order to be qualified as human. There is nothing left without love.

675

If one writes even a single sentence about love, that sentence would get hold of that person. That is to say that person would be captured by that sentence but as they write only hateful things, they become captured by what they write. Those letters hypnotize them and that profane language gets them into a state of hypnosis. Actually if they were to hypnotize themselves with love, they would have been under the influence of that hypnosis. They would be enveloped with that love as they write.

676

We need to make love take hold and become fashionable. The writers should also take the initiative and make love a constant agenda. This lack of love would ruin people; it is so horrible. If terms of endearment are uttered, if people talk about love, they will eventually get under the influence of love.

677

What the TV channels should really lay stress on are the facts leading to faith. When the hodjas, religious scholars appear on TV they usually talk about things that have happened in the past. They are not at all concerned with whether or not those people have faith. Actually the greatest problem we have is the problem in people's faith in God.

678

It is not right to wish for Hell for anyone. One should only ask God for the other's guidance on to the right path and for goodness.

679

Being called "crazy" shows the perfection of a Muslim's faith. Our prophet (saas) says, "A Muslim cannot attain perfection in faith unless he is called crazy." Actually, because of their loyalty to Islam, to the Qur'an, because of their enthusiasm, it is said, "If you had seen the Companions, you would have called them crazy." They distribute all they have, everything they own.

680

They do not have to make a mistake simply because Israel is mistaken as well. If you approach them in a friendly manner with love, you will see that they will become your friends. You approach them in a friendly way, with love. But if you approach them with knives they will approach you with bombs and tanks. There will be no end to this. But if you approach them with love, you will see that they will become your friends and respond with love. That is a secret of the Qur'an.

681

One would ask for a long life to serve Islam. Without that service for Islam, life could turn into trouble for one. One might have a long life but end up in the depths of Hell as a result. An auspicious, long life is important. If that auspiciousness, those good deeds are lost, if one does not serve on the path of God, a long life would do him no good. A long life is important only to serve Islam.

682

None of us will remain in this world. What important is to go to the Hereafter with one's honor. Martyrs are going to the Hereafter with such an honor.

683

Muslims are one another's brothers. They should love one another and protect each other, watch over one another. They will look at each other with good intentions with love and look for goodness in each other, both in good days and in bad days. They will not look at each other with prejudice or with political intent. No matter from which party they are, no matter from which walk of life they are, we have to look out for them. Muslims are each other's brothers and sisters and they are protective friends of one another.

684

‘’We did not send down the Qur'an to you to make you miserable." (Surah Ta-Ha, 2) One would think. Do you not understand? If you are miserable that means you are on the wrong path, if you are having difficulties that means you are on the wrong path. Islam is a religion of ease.

685

Why are you pushing for difficulty? There is music in Islam, there are arts. You can laugh and have fun, you can dance as you like and perform your prayers as well. Then you can go travel and swim if you like. Killing every aspect of social life has no place in Islam. You deem all lawful things unlawful. God has given all those to you as blessings, and by wiping out these blessings, you are struggling against the religion of God.

686

The Islamic community lives in a festive environment with an amazing enthusiasm. Everyone goes to each other's homes for sleep-overs, for dinners. They visit one another. For instance, let us say that one will build a home, everyone goes there and helps out and they build it together. They are served food there and eat together.

687

It is of course very important to be at our Prophet (saas)'s elbow. It is a great comfort for the Companions of our Prophet (saas). Actually people do not know the Islamic community that well. Muslims are like a big family. If one has a mansion with thirty rooms for instance, he fills it will Muslims, the food is cooked for all of them. The goods are distributed. Trade is done together, everything is shared and done commonly. That is an unprecedented system.

688

People should stop trying to teach morality to women. They need to educate men. Women know what they should do very well. People should stop trying to instruct women on how to dress, how to laugh, how to sit, how to look.

689

What the PYD/YPG is after is the only region on the Turkish border that they couldn't get hold of, and that is Cerablus. That is a small region that they want to get hold of. That is why they demand weapons. Or else they have nothing to do with ISIS. What they are after is to establish a Stalinist state.

690

Good morality is necessary for people to live well in society. The Qur'an is the source of good morality. Societies can lead a normal life only when the commands in the Qur'an related with humaneness are put into practice.

691

Women are the most beautiful embellishment of this world, there is nothing more beautiful than they are and there is no other blessing greater than them. God created them very, very beautifully, He created them to be very kind and to be very beautiful mannered; they are created as blessings.

692

If women are oppressed and persecuted, that country would certainly collapse: That would offend God. God would destroy the country in which His servants are persecuted.

693

When the one you preach religion to does not come to faith, your rank will advance even further. If he is less excited than you are, your rank will advance even further. You have nothing to lose.

694

Muslims are brothers. God says, "Muslims are each other's protecting friends." Let us create a system in which all Muslims would love one another. They are all brothers. Look, God says “...they are each other's protecting friends," meaning they are each other's protectors. They take care of one another, they help each other, they take care of each other when they are ill, they take care of everything about each other. I mean, they take care of each other like they would take care of a child.

695

No matter whose, every funeral should be respected. There should be no humiliation in any funeral; once one is dead, once his soul is gone and there is only flesh and bone behind to decompose, it should be respected regardless of who it belongs to.

696

The love of God brings relief to people. If the love of God is explained in a country day in and day out, there will be abundance and plenty in that country and their lives would be like Heaven. Otherwise they would all be distressed.

697

Misogynism is atrocious, you should forget about it. Women are the most beautiful beings that embellish the world. Without women, the world would be overcast, it would be pitch black. Woman is the sun of the world; they are the light of this world.

698

This is the classic method of the PKK and they bomb their own supporters and cause public indignation. In this way they try to draw people to their side. During this time of terror and violence, they say, "Look, as you can see, the fascists are bombing you, they are oppressing you. That means the only solution is war. You should go up the mountains and take up arms." This is the image the PKK is trying to create.

699

Muslims are always in a good mood. What does sorrow mean? May God forbid, it means, "I do not like what God has created for me." We see the goodness in everything God creates. We see the goodness in it when we have a martyr; we do not get sad, we do not mourn. Mourning is a custom of the pagans, it is the tradition of the idolaters.

700

Life is beautiful for Muslims. For unbelievers life is always distressful, painful and restricted. A Muslim is always thankful; even if he eats dry bread, he thanks God for it.

701

God creates angels, but they are made to love Him. God commands man to love Him without seeing Him. "There will be unbelievers, there will be hypocrites, there will be irreligious people. You will suffer, you will patiently endure difficulties and you will love Me with a profound love. Then I will love you very much," God says. God loves the angels, but they are incomparable with man.

702

Almighty God says, “I want to see your love for Me.” God wants to have people who He loves and He wants there to be those who love Him. God has everything. He is Omnipotent and He wants to have people who love Him.

703

God gives you a three dimensional image and you view it inside your brain; He gives you the ability to smell beautiful scents so that you smell them; He gives you the ability of tasting so that you find pleasure in those tastes; He gives you the sense of touch so that you touch, you swim in the sea, you go boating, you enjoy the world to the utmost; but when it comes to the Creator, you say, "I do not want to be the object of this." God would then plague you. This world is not a place of entertainment.

704

Ours is the world of trial. The important thing is to make Islam prevail in the world. The rest is not at all important. Once Islam prevails in the world, everyone would be at ease, everything you have would be under guarantee. If Islam does not prevail in the world, it would turn into a living hell.

705

Building a third bridge or a fourth bridge is not our problem. You might build bridges, but your enemy could still come and confiscate all your bridges, take away everything from you. You might work for 40 years yet they could come and seize everything you own. That is why the real danger that should be addressed is the danger of separation.

706

Turkey is the bastion of Islamic Unity. That is why she needs to have a very severe reaction to anything that would give the green light to the separation of Turkey. Ensuring the integrity of the people is very important.

707

The hadiths that do not conflict with the Qur'an are authentic. Every hadith that complies with the Qur'an is authentic. For instance, if our Prophet (saas) foretells an incident that will take place in the End Times, the hadith that tells us about that incident is authentic and valid.

708

Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) has come. The Prophet Jesus Messiah (pbuh) has come, but has not yet become apparent. Almighty God is preparing their time of appearance, their time of becoming apparent. The events will reach inconceivable dimensions. Right now we are at a phase of the system of the Mahdi; I mean events will escalate to inconceivable dimensions in Syria, in Iraq, in the whole region. They will escalate immensely and much bigger incidents will take place. And after that, Almighty God will make His Mahdi apparent.

709

Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is a man of love, mercy, compassion, wisdom, friendship, beauty and aesthetics. Europe will accept him, the US will accept him, whole world freemasonry will lovingly accept him, all the Templars, the Rosicrucian Fellowship and all the deep state organizations will accept him. That is why Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will be the imam of the world.

710

Struggling against the PKK is an individual duty for every Muslim. It is a religious obligation for Muslims to wipe out unbelief from the face of this world. Struggling against the antichrist is an individual duty on every Muslim. No one should ever say, "It is none of my business." This is the individual duty of everyone. Of course, our way in that is the way of knowledge and education.

711

Darwinist education was given during the Ottomans. What is a Darwinist education? An education system that denies the existence of God and says, "God did not create you, you've come into existence through coincidences". That is a grave and comprehensively unlawful act that had been carried out since the Ottomans; it was a great corruption and a grave fitna. And that was the reason for the collapse of the Ottomans.

712

The families of the martyrs are very honorable people. They can feel honored with their children God covers in blessings. That is because God has taken their children directly to His heaven. They have become the people, the lambs of Heaven. That makes them the mothers, the fathers of those lambs of Heaven. What a great beauty, what a honorable parenthood. The reward God gives those mothers and fathers because of their patience will be abundant.

713

Any country that fails to ensure the freedom of women would certainly be devastated. Let me say that much. There is a decision taken about this, this is the reward of it in the Sight of God and the reward of it in the world. Any system, any government, any state that is misogynistic, that suppresses and persecutes women is bound to collapse; they should know this much.

714

The goal of the PKK, why it was founded is not well -known in Turkey. Actually, in (the mistaken view of) Armageddon, there is this great Muslim slaughter; the West does not want to use their own assassins but they use the murderers of the PKK, the professional murderers.

715

For perfect love, there should be perfect morality. For perfect morality, there should be perfect fear of God. All of them are related with love and aim love.

716

For one to live by the Qur'an, the Qur'an should be all around him. He should have the Qur'an right by his side, at his desk. He should hold on to the Qur'an like bread, like water.

717

Just like the PKK that gives an ideological education, we need to give an ideological education to Turkish soldiers, police officers and Turkish youth. "How can we attain national unity and integrity? What is the danger of PKK? What are the characteristics of communist organizations? How can communism get foothold? Why is the philosophy behind communism tainted and wrong? Why is Darwinism invalid?" All these matters should be taught in schools. Or else, may God forbid, there will be nothing left remaining from Turkey.

718

There is a struggle of survival. Turkey will either vanish completely, or become exalted and lead the whole Islamic world and the Turkish world; she will reach a beautiful point and wait for God to bestow that holy leadership on her.

719

National conscience is the most crucial subject matter. If we lose Turkey, what good could come if one is an engineer or not? That is why we need to put courses on national conscience in our curriculum as soon as possible.

720

There should be courses on national conscience in our curriculum. Lessons on the communist threat, the threat of partitioning Turkey, the dangers of Darwinism and materialism, on how to resist and respond to these ideologies should be taught by experienced teachers for at least three hours a week.

721

Love is the meaning of life. Hatred is far more difficult and it destroys one spiritually and physically. It destroys society, brings down social life and the economy. Hatred is dreadful.

722

What God is interested in particular is the love felt for Him. One should be madly in love with God. God approves the love one feels with his faith in the Unseen, without losing the free will of his mind.

723

Eat, drink and travel; anyone can do that. There will be hardships, there will be illnesses, there will be difficulties, there will be troubles and scourges and you will love God deeply just the same against all odds. That is what Almighty God loves the most.

724

People living in the swamp of unbelief are seriously polluted by that impurity. That smudge is seen on them. It reverberates on their flesh and bones, in their skin, in their gaze, in everything they have. That ruthless smudge of that merciless world contaminates them all over. When that person starts living by Islam, that smudge would leave that person gradually.

725

The more hardships suffered, the more the good deeds acquired would be. The difficulties Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) encounters are countless. Every single hardship encountered is a step ahead. For instance, think about a 1,000 kilometer-long ladder, 1,000 kilometers of ascending steps; one climbs up incessantly and the spiritual ranks he attains elevate incessantly.

726

The longer one remains in this world, the more one might have the means to improve in the spiritual sense. After one passes away, after one goes to Heaven, there would be no need for courage, loyalty and everything else. They only eat and drink and have fun, praise God and become like the angels. That is why being in this world for a long time is rewarding as well; that is because when you remain in this world, you acquire millions of good deeds.

727

Those who become victorious in their struggle against the whisperings of satan are called faithful. The whisperings of satan would be incessant, Satan would constantly pester you. Bediuzzaman says, 'Even if the armies of doubt come at one's door, verified faith would resist, but imitated faith would be defeated.' That is why we are preparing books on the facts leading to faith and make them available for you. I mean, we do that for you to be able to resist against the armies of doubt. Muslims become heroes because of their resistance and they thus become valuable in the Sight of God.

728

Muslims talk about God wherever they are. Life and religion are intertwined. One remembers God while he is having a bath, while he is eating and he talks about God wherever they are and in any event. There is not a moment, not a place in their lives that they do not remember God. One should see that he can live comfortably live with the Qur'an, read the Qur'an very easily, wherever he is. The Qur'an will be with you wherever you go, the Qur'an will be right by your side when you go to bed and you will remember God when you are in bed as well.

729

When you support the PYD, you would be supporting Öcalan and all the other communist organizations founded by Öcalan such as PJAK, the YPG, the PKK and all that. These organizations constitute a whole anyway. There are at least 20 organizations gathering around the PKK and they are all PKK militants. If you support any one of them you would be supporting the PKK. If you legalize one of them, you would be legalizing all of them.

730

The only fault of ISIS in the eyes of Europe is that they are Muslims and nothing else. I mean this reaction is not caused by their being terrorists, but by their being Muslims. That is because as we see, they are not concerned at all with the communist PKK. The PKK martyred tens of thousands of our people and they do not even care. They are trying to found a communist state in those lands and that does not concern any of them.

731

No matter how far the European Union pushes all it comes to one simple fact. Is autonomy a danger for Turkey or not? It is a danger. Thus, we won't accept it. The lofty interests of our homeland, of our people, of our country constitute our basis. The demands of the European Union are no concern of ours. Autonomy would cause disintegration in Turkey, that is an explicit fact.

732

Gentility is important. An environment in which people act crude or a banal person would be very disturbing. Vulgar people are very disturbing. Gentle people satisfy one's soul. No harm would come from a gentle person. There is even a Turkish proverb to that effect. They say; "a gentle person does not go astray, just as honey does not stink." That is a very well- known proverb. But one can expect anything from a banal person, from a crude person. They suck up to others, they manipulate others for their own interests, they behave egotistically. But a gentle, noble person would never stoop to such behaviors.

733

There is no one in the world who does not believe in the real sense of the word; that is how it is according to the Qur'an. All people, without fail, believe in their hearts but some hide their belief because of their lack of conscience. I mean they proclaim the opposite of their belief by oppressing their good conscience.

734

75 % of Afghanistan is under the control of Taliban right now. The US and Russia bombed them with all their might. Millions of people have been martyred. What happened? The Taliban is still the governing force. Their struggle lasted 15 years and 44 countries participated. NATO participated but they couldn't stop the Taliban and they cannot stop ISIS in Syria either. Things won't happen as they imagine they would.

735

An incomprehensible violence, an incomprehensible savagery has engulfed the whole world. Imam Mahdi (pbuh) has to appear. May Almighty God make Jesus Messiah appear. May He make Imam Mahdi (pbuh) appear. The time for that is approaching. They won't appear in 2015 on in 2016. But 2017, 2019 to 2021, these are sensitive dates.

736

If the world forgets about love, troubles would replace it. They should never forget this. 250,000 people have died in Syria, during the US invasion in Iraq 1.5 million people died and again in Afghanistan millions have died; what kind of a method is this? They have left millions of enraged people behind. Now all of those people side with ISIS or the Taliban. This is not an acceptable method. Results can only be attained through love, science and understanding.

737

We should have courses on national conscience in our curriculum and raise awareness in our youth in political sense. Keeping silent against the propaganda of the PKK is not acceptable.

738

People are highly comfortable; the great majority of young girls and young men are only concerned with getting married or finishing their schools. They go to play pool and watch sports matches. Some are only concerned with the football team they favor and want them to be the champion of the league. They are not even aware there is a hellish environment going on in Turkey. Their national conscience or awareness is not sufficiently strong. These youngsters should be educated.

739

The US is relying on these YPG militants in vain. They would all be massacred within a day, let me tell you that much. They would massacre all those YPG militants all through that border, from one side to the other. They are acting stupidly. The only salvation for them is to come surrender themselves to Turkey. There is no salvation for them other than that. They cannot deal with ISIS. ISIS is a system that gets stronger day by day.

740

Mao executed a million intellectuals, he executed everyone who criticized him. Some youngsters still assume that they would still have the means to write posts online here and there if a Stalinist state, a red Kurdistan, was founded in the Southeast. First of all, you wouldn't even have a computer, that regime would make you eat that computer piece by piece. You cannot enjoy contentment. You would work in a factory in the day time and have indoctrination classes in the evening, you go to bed with a whistle and wake up with a whistle.

741

My dear Kurdish brothers, the whole of Turkey is yours. Why would you want to be confined in that region? They want to crush you with a Stalinist regime, to ruin you. Pull yourself together. Why would you want to imprison yourself in the humiliating system of a Stalinist state while you do have the means to live a free, beautiful, decent life? You constrain yourself in that difficult geography. I am saying all this for some of our Kurdish people.

742

You do not ask one who is about to be killed, "Shall I save you?" If there is a murder being committed, you directly get in and save the person who is about to be killed. You break in and get in. If you go and say, "May I come in? Do I have your permission to break in? Can we discuss this?" You would lose that one in the meantime.

743

First, one party should approach things with good sense so that the other party could approach with good sense. If you act insanely, or if you act aggressively and angrily, they would act ten -fold more aggressively. However, approaching things with good sense would also draw the other side to good sense, to an reasonable logic.

744

When you do not look into things with a good conscience, you would grovel. Have a look at your life; is there a single moment night or day that you feel happy? You feel sad every single day. Every single day you get in a tizzy. Every single day you are in pain. Every single day you feel uncomfortable. I mean, does running away from Islam bring you comfort? Almighty God would spiritually chase you off where ever you run away. God crushes you everywhere you go and you would never be free of God's reach.

745

When you run away from Muslims, God would drive you away from the sea of blessings; when you come to Muslims you would be getting closer to the sea of blessings. When you look into things solely with logic, of course Satan would show everything the other way round. You would see what is right as wrong and what is wrong as right. It is not acceptable to look into things with logic; you need to look into things with your good conscience.

746

Showing love is a good deed. You acquire good deeds and a beauty of would be formed at the Sight of God. That is because you feel that love for the manifestation of God, you would be loving God. Then God would love you even more, He would expand your heart even further.

747

There is no such problem as an age difference among Muslims. There is something called mental age and if a person is wise and sensible that would be enough.

748

People who lack faith imagine that they can only be happy with people their age; for instance, that is a pagan belief, and a superstitious belief as well. They have to be with people their age, suffer through their whims, put up with their impertinence, acquiesce to their rudeness, their vulgarity, their disrespect and egoism. Are people that foolish? No one would ever come near to that. When that is the case, they are left alone and adrift.

749

I have never seen anyone happy after going astray. If that was the case, we would have said, "People going astray become happy but you should hold on to God because you will be happy in Heaven so you should not emulate them." But we see that they live a hellish life.

750

One finds peace and tranquility in Islam. Islam would bring one relief, it would provide friends and companions, wealth and riches, it would bring about plenty. You can live in peace with everyone. Unbelief, on the other hand, is like a poison, it brings about pain and suffering. One grovels in unbelief.

751

Some people imagine that they would be happy once they forget God, but that is never the case. In such a case, God bestows a thousand and one troubles upon them while they are unaware. God would constantly grip their souls and make them unable to enjoy anything. God would make their lives miserable without them sensing it. There is no such thing as being happy in forgetting God.

752

Muslims do not take dirt in. The dirt that is the hypocrite is frequently washed off and Muslims are cleansed from it. Muslims become strong and fresh as they are cleansed from them. How do people feel after a shower? They feel refreshed, immaculately clean and fragrant. That is exactly how they are after the hypocrites are washed off from among them.

753

Hypocrites are the dirt among a Muslim community. Just like Muslims get rid of the dirt on them when they bathe and become immaculately clean after that bath, they wash themselves with soap and get rid of that dirt and become squeaky-clean and healthy. And you say, “Why doesn't that dirt stick?" Muslims are clean, they do not live with dirt. They wash off the dirt and get rid of it, hypocrites are thus washed off and what remains behind are radiant Muslims.

754

The state should provide significant amounts of monetary assistance to cancer patients. The drugs used and the treatment given to such patients should be free of charge. No one should ever say, 'What is it to me, I am not the sick one, it is none of my business."

755

God is the One Who gives love. That is created as a miracle. I mean God is the One Who creates passion. There is no love and no passion in disbelief and heresy. They strive for it but it doesn't happen. No matter what they do, they cannot attain love. They try to portray that in the movies, in books but they cannot attain that in practice. Why? Because it is a miracle that comes about with faith. It is a beauty that is formed between a faithful woman and a faithful man.

756

If you abide by the Qur'an, assuming a pose would seem as a very crude, unglamorous and impertinent act. Who would be your guide if you do not abide by the Qur'an? Satan. It would make you pose, talk sarcastically and act impertinently. It would make you become ill-tempered and argumentative. It sets you at odds with the others and bring about lovelessnes, it destroys your inner energy.

757

There is music, paintings, statues and arts in the Islamic Union. Everyone will be free to wear silk, wear gold, have fun, perform their prayers five times a day, read the Qur'an, read all the books they like; everyone will enjoy the utmost freedom.

758

Some people assume that the bigotry that is going on right now will be reinforced ten-fold when Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) appears. That is not the case. The bigotry that is going on right now will be cleared out and a normal, humane life style will be embraced.

759

Our government is not an uptight government, they should follow an extroverted policy. They should embrace art and artists and aim for a cheerful, lively Turkey. They should follow a policy based on quality, beauty and aesthetics.

760

Our citizens should never have the inclination to be offended by, or upset at the state and they should be very careful about this. That is unacceptable because by doing so one would be like cutting one's own throat. The state is not an institution one could be offended by or be angry with. If there is a problem, the state should be repaired and restored.

761

Every artificial movement of the Mahdi would willingly or unwillingly serve the system of the Mahdi.

762

If you feel weary, that means your love for God is insufficient. If you do not feel weariness, that means you love God a lot. One would never feel tired of showing his love for the one he loves deeply and passionately. We are showing our love for God with our talks in these broadcasts. I also show my love for God; that is how a lover would be. If you do love, then you would do anything for the one you love. If you are not doing what should be done, that means you do not feel that love.

763

We would not kill Muslims; we do not shed Muslim blood. Those who are trying to encourage us to kill Muslims are wicked and despicable. They are characterless, inglorious. I mean, whoever attempts to encourage us by saying, "Shoot down and kill that Muslim community" are perfidious and immoral. If we are to carry out an operation, we would do so against the PKK. We do not have any intention to kill them either, we would only imprison them.

764

Bravery is a lofty characteristic and exists only for humans. This is why they become martyrs or veterans eventually. But there is no such characteristic in angels. Nothing happens to angels when there is a war. There is no such thing for them to be patient. That is why God created humans superior to angels if they are God-fearing and if they have good morality. People might manage to surpass angels many times over.

765

Respect, love, compassion and appraisal should be shown to artists. None of these are given to the artists. No artistic spirit exists in such an environment. No artists could ever produce a new work of art, none. The government should see that this would be a national disaster. People's heart's sink. Such conservatism is not acceptable. We need to rejuvenate our people with love, compassion, music, fun and art.

766

The partitioning of Turkey has no place in destiny. Had that compass turned over Turkey, Turkey would have been separated and no one could have stopped it from happening by the leave of God. But there is no such thing. Consequently the PKK is tumbling and rolling over in vain. Their ruin is in their destiny. They will be ruined, the PKK will be destroyed.

767

God tells us that there will be ordeals and pain in the world. Submit yourself to God as you should and see if you would suffer. God knows pain but He doesn't experience pain. People will know pain but they would not experience that pain if they submit themselves completely to God. One needs to find that secret, that secret of complete submission.

768

A free world, a free humanity, a free spirit would be creative; the power of understanding would develop. There will be an advancement in the arts, in the sciences in such an environment. But under a repressive state, people would be paralyzed.

769

Let there be freedom, let there be democracy. Let everyone strive for that with all their might. That is because wisdom, the arts and science develops in a free environment. Under the pressure of a state, wisdom will be atrophied. People would not have power of understanding. There would be no artists, no scientists. Industry atrophies, people lose their eagerness to work.

770

God did not create this world as place of fun. God says, "I will forget you if you forget Me." Love is what God looks for. He glares down and ruins all those who do not love Him madly, and that is it.

771

2019-2021 are the years the system of the antichrist will withdraw and collapse. But the years in between are the years of disaster. I have told the Freemasons as well, I have told them that this bloodshed would not stop, that it will continue. I would have said so if it were to stop but it will come to an end after a while. People will have to endure this, not by getting sad but by submitting themselves to God.

772

Turkey being in difficulty, the Middle East being in difficulty is a condition for the plan of the system of the Mahdi, I mean it is the requisite of destiny. All these events take place as a requirement of this plan and they will continue to take place. The partitioning of Syria, the partitioning of Iraq in the End Times are all related with the system of the Mahdi. That can be seen clearly as a light when we look at the hadiths. That is as clear as crystal, that is explicit.

773

People will understand why God has created this world. They assume that it has been created simply for them to go skiing, to go swimming in the sea, or to go have fun. That is not why the world has been created. God created this world only to select those who He loves, for them to look for ways to attain His approval. They imagine that the world is a place of fun. They don't understand it correctly.

774

The PKK is not something that would come to an end in an instant; that is because their intellectual substructure is being taught in school textbooks by the state as if it is a scientific reality. The state espouses the Darwinist-materialist system anyway. Consequently, this pest will continue to exist so long as this Darwinist-materialist education continues.

775

There is the need for this pest named the PKK, so that there will be a national awakening. No such awakening will ever take place without that pest. I mean without the Pharaoh, there would be no Moses. Without Nimrod, there would be no Abraham. Without the Antichrist, there would be no Mahdi.

776

Islam is deep faith, it is loving God a lot. Can you make people love God? No. Do you love God yourself? You don't seem to. Fearing God and loving God a lot; one needs to assure that. After that is ensured, there is nothing intricate about religion. There is no need for those know-it-all approaches, no need for such approaches that look down on people.

777

In this streaming image, in this movie, the system of the Mahdi prevails. That is the end of the movie. Jesus Messiah (pbuh) appears, Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) appears and the PKK comes to an end, communism comes to an end, Darwinism comes to an end. People are on pins and needles right now and that is necessary; but they will look and see that the system of the Mahdi became successful through fascinating ways.

778

It might seem that it is very complicated but the system of the Mahdi, the system of the Messiah cannot be disposed of underhandedly. They can neither deal with the spiritual sons of Jesus Messiah, with his students, nor with Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). That is destiny. They cannot change this image.

779

The deep state of the US is setting a trap for the PKK and they are not aware of it. Demirtaş says, "I do not think that the US will stab us in the back." They will do so, I am telling you in advance. They have done that to all of the terror organizations. They first cultivated them, used them and then throttled them. They will do the same to you as well. Do not act foolishly and back down from this in time.

780

The world stands on and lives on prayers. They would only turn the world into a living hell with brute force and killings, with acting despotically and they would attain nothing else.

781

If Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) withdraws from this world, even for a day, the Last Day will break loose; even in the space of ten minutes the Last Day will break loose. That is why the angels form an amazing block around him with an incredible fastidiousness. That is what we see in the hadiths. The Archangels Gabriel and Michael never leave his side.

782

To carry out a struggle against ISIL, they need to look into the system of the Mahdi. The solution is within it; in Jesus Messiah (pbuh) and Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). They need to pray to God for the second coming for Jesus Messiah (pbuh) and for the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).

783

Woman is a work of art. If you want to appreciate that work of art as is due, first you need to respect her, value her, protect and watch over her, you need to show courtesy, you need to be nice and decent.

784

Mourning is a custom of idolatry, a custom that was in practice in ancient Sumeria, Mesopotamia, the Hittites, in ancient Greek, in ancient Egypt. In numerous hadiths, our prophet (saas) has prohibited mourning. It is against the Qur'an. It is rebellion –may God forbid- to the blessings of God. It is not an act that befits Muslims; the meaning behind it is atrocious. There is no mourning in Islam.

785

Our Kurdish brothers are among the primary elements of Turkey. They are very dear to us with their good morality, with their personality, with their perfect characteristics.

786

The American deep state's standpoint regarding our people is really bad and very wrong. Their standpoint regarding Iraq proved to be true to a large extent; so was their standpoint regarding Syria. But we will show them that their standpoint regarding Turkey is not right. They assume that they will get by with what they are doing now and that they will easily use Turkey. That will never happen.

787

The goal of the American deep state is to grate on people's nerves and make them say, “Let them do whatever they want, as long as this bloodshed is stopped, as long as we do not have any more martyrs. Let us do whatever they say."

788

Autonomy is not a model where the PKK would be able to attain what they want. You cannot get Abdullah Öcalan out of prison. You cannot release other murderers of the PKK either. You cannot act independently. What would you say then? "Let us be a state." This is the goal of the PKK. The PKK hasn't been in those mountains for 30 years, 40 years simply to attain autonomy.

789

There is a second stage in autonomy. They are like the stairs of a ladder. The first stair is autonomy. The second stair is federation. The third stair is an independent state. That is not acceptable. The goal of the PKK is to separate us from our brothers that we have lived together with for thousands of years. We would not let that happen.

790

If a country is to be brought down, a commission consisting of spiritual notables under the leadership of Hazrat Khidr (pbuh) would decide on that. Once the decision is given, there is no way back.

791

It is crucially important to increase the number of the village rangers. That would provide a serious economic contribution to our village ranger brothers and would create an important power in the defense of our people in the region. 30,000 new village rangers should be recruited. That would militate in favor of our state and would be instrumental in the development and the mobilization of the Southeast. At least 30,000 village rangers should be recruited, we do not want any new undersea tunnels etc. These steps should be taken instead.

792

They did not have a copy of the Qur'an in any of the Masonic Lodges. I have ensured that they have a copy of the Holy Qur'an in every single one of the Masonic Lodges. God made me instrumental in this.

793

The PKK is the mentality of the Pharaoh, it is the mentality of the antichrist, it is perversion and heresy. It is a gathering of unbelievers, it is a gathering of heretics and it is a movement of the devil that aims to annihilate Muslims in masses. The necessary steps against it will be taken by the leave of God, with science and knowledge, with laws and the legal system.

794

The PKK represent a branch of the system of the antichrist in the End Times. We will chop that branch off with laws and the legal system.

795

Every dark night has a morning. When darkness envelops a place, light comes after it: That is the custom of God. The system of the Mahdi appears, after every pharaoh, after every system of the antichrist.

796

There are some young men who get into a battle of words with young girls. They try to embarrass and humiliate them. What would they gain by doing that? Lets say that you really embarrassed them, would that make you bigger? You would simply be humiliated yourself. If you humiliate a woman, you will be humiliated. That is a foolish move. You should instead present your love, your respect and your kindness.

797

The reason for separation is weakness in faith. If your love is for God, why would you ever leave? But if your love is for your own interests, who comes for interests would leave for interests.

798

Love that is not based on faith would end with separation. If it is based on faith, there will be no separation. But if it is based on self-interest, when one finds a greater interest in another person, one wouldn't show any mercy and will simply walk out.

799

Albeit a filthy one, the PKK has an ideal. They go and live in the caves up in the mountains for that ideal. Do they not know how to get married? Do they not know to get a job, a spouse or food? Yet these people live for their ideals; their ideal is a filthy and a wrong ideal, but they are killed and are willing to risk death to that end.

800

When people look at us, they mostly fixate on what is seen on the surface; the wealth, beautiful women, music and fun; that is what they see in the beginning. I mean they do not see the books, they do not see works and activities carried out. But later on, when they start looking into it, they understand that they came into something like Heaven step by step. They understand that they are approaching a spirit of meaning and their world starts to be enlightened as they approach and they advance as they are enlightened.

801

Unless the PKK is intellectually defeated, the PKK will infiltrate and hold sway in the universities and high schools step by step. The PKK's way of thinking constantly causes the faithful youth to retreat step by step. As far as I can see, the leftist ideology literally prevails in all our universities.

802

We need to raise a perfect youth that is perfectly equipped against the Marxist way of thinking, against the communist way of thinking, against the PKK; one that fully grasps the ideology of the organization, one that knows how to give a struggle against them very well, one that uses scientific evidence in doing so. Right now, our youth is adrift. Contrary to what should be done, they are given a Darwinist education.

803

The youth should be brought up as faithful, wise youngsters equipped with ideals, perfected in the spiritual sense, saved from the claws of materialism, perfectly equipped with all the knowledge regarding the belief of Creation.

804

The Bektashi Dervish Order is one full of secrets. The Naqshbandi Order is also full of secrets. In the End Times, the secrets will be revealed in stages. The seniors of the Naqshbandi Order knows the Mahdi (pbuh). They know who he is. The seniors of the Bektashi Order knows him as well. That secret has been revealed to them. They instantly understand who he is. The students of the Treatise of Light, not all of them, but rather those who have been given that secret, know who the Mahdi (pbuh) is as well.

805

Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will remove the chains on people. An intellectual, reasonable, lively and loving understanding of Islam will rule.

806

Our conservative Orthodox Muslim brothers assume that the Mahdi will come and see that the current radicalism as something very light and say, "What kind of bigotry is that? I will do a hundred times more of it." They believe that the world will be plunged into a pitch black darkness after him. The fact is however that Hazrat Mahdi will solve radicalism from the roots once and for all.

807

About one-third of Syria's land could be under the control of Bashar Al-Assad and the remaining two-thirds of it could be bound to Turkey as a federation. Turkey can be a guarantor state and the matter will then be closed once and for all. It will also be under the guarantee of NATO: Turkey is affiliated with NATO and that federation will thus be included in the lands of Turkey. The matter will all be solved.

808

Some people talk within the lines "But how are we to find the money?" about helping those who are in need. God would bring plenty in folds. The good deeds that will be attained is important, attaining the good pleasure of God is important. If you attain the good pleasure of God, He would give you riches. If you do not act in a way to attain His good pleasure and are stingy instead, God would take away everything you have and you would lose all your goods and possessions.

809

Now, what should be done in Cizre? We should make the homes of our brave people, our Kurdish brothers, our radiant brothers even beautiful than before. If they have lost their possessions and goods, we should compensate them many times over. If they do not have food to eat or for instance if they have lost their 10 kg of rice, we should take 100 kg of rice in a sack and give it to them. That would bring about plenty.

810

Let us reinforce our love and unity, we will soon see the result of it. God is watching us right now and hears all that we are talking about. He brought us together right now. God is the One Who ensures our trust, love and respect for one another. All power is with God. We pray and ask for the world to be good and beautiful and it will, insha'Allah, be like that.

811

It is very important to be decisive and persistent. I believe that these troubles, these pains will come to an end with the help of God. I see that loving, wise people are active. It is possible to persuade even the cruelest ones. If you approach them with love, if you approach them with faith in God, we will altogether see that it is possible to do that. Everything will return to its former beauty.

812

The solution to the persecution and the sufferings going on in the region cannot be found solely with diplomacy. It can be solved with love, with connection to God.

813

All the official institutions in the US have always been in the hands of Freemasons. George Washington, for instance is a grand Master. All of the presidents of the US until today were Freemasons without exception.

814

What does the PKK mean by negotiations? It is like the Treaty of Sevres. What did the men say in the Treaty of Sevres? 'Come sit at the table' and they broke Turkey into pieces. This is the same. That table is the table of the Treaty of Sevres. It is a far worse table.

815

Those who only use their logic would always grovel. But in the beginning, they appear as if they will be wining. Those who go by their conscience might appear to be losing in the beginning, but they will always win eventually.

816

Some people go by their logic instead of their good conscience. They say, 'I listen to the voice of my logic.' My brother, you would grovel if you do that. Logic might appear as if it will save people in the first sight. One might think that following logic will always give way to things that will be in his favor, that will always be at their sweet will, and that will serve their interests. Actually logic would constantly drag people into troubles.

817

In the Qur'an God says, ' ...they repudiated them wrongly and haughtily, in spite of their own certainty about them.' They resisted their good conscience. Otherwise their good conscience demands the right choice and tells them to "do". But they crush it. That is why their faces are darkened. Or else when people do not resist their good conscience, when they listen to the stirrings of their conscience, their faces will be radiant.

818

After a short while, Azerbaijan will open their doors, Armenia will open their doors, the Turkic states will open their doors. And then Iraq, Syria, Jordan, and moreover Israel. By means of Hazrat Mahdi we will live in love and brotherhood. But how long would that last? Seven to nine years and that is it. Later on an incomprehensible corruption will start, a moral corruption, up until Hijri 1545. That news will find them on a morning, or noon or night of 1545. They should write this on a stone. That stone will be torn into pieces on that day and the Last Day will come.

819

The first succesful implementation of Islamic Union is in Turkey; Kurdish, Laz, Circassian and all other ethnic groups have become brothers within that beautiful spirit of Islamic Unity. Had there been racism among them, there would be a Turkish state in the Middle Anatolia, a Kurdish state in the Southeast, a Laz state in the Black Sea region, another state on the Aegean shores and we would all be torn to pieces. These states would be torn to pieces among themselves as well. We are enjoying this unity and integrity because the morality of Islamic Unity is being practiced.

820

Our police officers are the most merciful ones in the world. Our soldiers are the most compassionate, best mannered, noblest soldiers in the world. They are young, brave, beautiful mannered Anatolians.

821

Art ennobles the human soul, it beautifies people and is the urgent nutrient of human soul. Europe has realized this and put that into practice very early on. They have attained very nice results in the end. Radicals, on the other hand, have dealt one of the biggest blows by estranging the Islamic world from the arts.

822

Hatred towards radicals is also tactless. They have been brought up like this, they are sincerely bigoted, they do not act in a bigoted manner out of spite. They believe that radicalism is how religion is put into practice the best. I mean they imagine that they are acting in line with Islam by making life miserable for themselves, by turning the world into a living hell. They have the wrong information, so you have to teach them the truth with kindness.

823

The MHP should watch over the religious communities, Muslim communities and religious orders much better. I mean the MHP should become better integrated with the people. They are left in a very narrow plain as it is. The AK Party became a great party although they started from scratch; that is because they have followed the policy of a mass party. They [the AKP] watched over religious orders and communities and they progressed immensely. If the MHP does the same, they would progress as well.

824

Annihilating Darwinism and materialism with scientific evidence would severe the main lifeblood of the PKK. Or else, so long as the system feeding the PKK sustains, no matter what you do or say wouldn't work. Blood would still be shed in streams.

825

Darwinism and materialism brings about the Marxist, Leninist, terrorist mindset.

826

The quality of the weaponry given to our police officers and soldiers should be increased and a mobilization campaign should be declared. That would completely demoralize the PKK. The number of our soldiers would then reach to four million and we can gather them in 72 hours. Look, four million soldiers would make our enemies quiver in fear. There are not that many soldiers in the Chinese Army. Such a large army would be earth-shaking. After we are done with the PKK, we can withdraw our soldiers and have them discharged. But we should do that without losing any more time.

827

If the TV channels report news about martyrs with cries and bellows, that serves the purposes of the PKK. But if we have parents proud of their sons, holding their heads high, that would cripple the PKK.

828

Many of the families in the Southeast are poor, they do not have a copy of the Qur'an in their homes; you can distribute the copies of the Qur'an in the Southeast, you can publish books explaining the invalidity of Darwinism and have them distributed. I am giving the copyright of my books, you can have them published and distributed as you like. Darwinism is the reason behind the progress of the PKK. Write to the Ministry of Education to put an end to the unilateral Darwinist education at schools, submit petitions. You do not make a peep. Instead of attacking the buses our inoffensive brothers from the Southeast are on, give an intellectual struggle against the PKK mindset.

829

If you annihilate Darwinism, the PKK will be annihilated as well. If you teach Darwinism in primary schools, in high schools day in and day out, some of the people turn out as Marxists, Leninists just like that.

830

They should quit playing the funeral march for the martyrs. That is very disturbing. It is such weird, depressing music and absolutely unnecessary. Martyrs should be sent off with salawats, by saying Allahu Akbar and should be shown round the city.

831

Kurdish people are radiant people, they are noble and decent people. If you are strong enough, go and join the armed services and struggle against the PKK. What is it that you want from our Kurdish people, you inglorious man? Kurdish people are immaculate people with superb morality.

832

When Islam prevails, one who attains a million good deeds would only attain one good deed. Someone who previously attained a million good deeds with an act, with a behavior, would only attain –let us say- five good deeds with that act when Islam prevails in the whole world. After that, because no meaning is left in life and because the trial has come to an end, the Last Day comes swiftly. The passing away of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and the prophet Jesus Messiah (pbuh) and then the Last Day will come rapidly, insha'Allah.

833

God is the One Who is Great and Exalted. Man cannot be great. Man is a piteous wretched being. What could a transient, image being be strong enough for?

834

You are an ordinary piteous servant of God. Why do you put on airs? Where you go does not honor you. What is there in those places you go? Cement, iron, bricks, stone, wood, asphalt and there are also trees. Why would you be honored because of that?

835

Humans have nothing to be arrogant about. You are a being, made up of flesh and bones and blood, you have natural needs, why is it that you put on airs? You are going to die eventually, why are you putting on an act? And life ends in a very short while. Every dead body bloats and explodes inside the grave. There is nothing for you to put on airs about; humans are piteous beings.

836

Let us spoil the plans of the PKK; I mean, let us clear away their plots to gain strength using our martyrs. For instance if you walk the martyr for hours around the city with salawats, making the place resound, that would not serve the purposes of the PKK. That is because it would create an enormous spiritual tension and everyone would side with the martyrs.

837

Especially while bidding farewell to our martyrs, displaying their families crying, throwing themselves on the coffins, bellowing, fainting is what the PKK wants. Or else, if we were to hold the funerals of our martyrs with salawats by saying Allahu Akbar, that would not serve the purposes of the PKK and would be the most galling thing of all for the PKK.

838

No one should pick on one another in such a period. Everyone should approach each other with love. National unity is very important. Pushing one another around instead of protecting and watching over one another would be a very abnormal behavior; it would be unlawful.

839

May Almighty God give strength to the families of our martyrs to appear as well mannered, brave soldier families who put their trust in God. They should strictly avoid appearing sad and sorrowful. The PKK wants these to appear in the media. That is the reason why they organize all those explosions. Or else it is not possible to subvert 80 million people with the martyrdom of 15 people. But they see it as vital for the propaganda of the organization. The cries of the families, their fainting and throwing themselves on the coffins are the propaganda materials the PKK regards as crucial.

840

It should be a crime to be a PKK supporter. I mean shouting slogans in support of the PKK, carrying the PKK rags should be a crime. Wide-scale arrests should be made. That would cripple the PKK drastically and they would thus lose all their supporters. Everything will settle down. 60,000 or 70,000 arrests could be made. Fill the prisons with them and they will then calm down.

841

Where is the verse in the Qur'an that deems music unlawful? Where is the verse in the Qur'an that deems paintings unlawful? What gave you that idea? There is no such ban in the Qur'an. Consequently, by doing so, you have created a hell for yourself. You have made lawful things unlawful and you hope that you will be given a beautiful reward in the Hereafter. May God protect you from Hell. Coming up with prohibitions in the name of God means ascribing partners to God.

842

Music is lawful by religion, paintings are lawful, having fun is lawful, sculpture is lawful. I mean, lawful things are innumerable. Things that are forbidden by religion are concisely defined in the Qur'an and they are very few. God says, 'I have deemed everything other than those lawful for you.' How do you come up with all those forbidden acts on your own?

843

Fossils are not shown to people, to the youth and children anywhere in the world. That is both weird and exemplary. Why do they avoid showing fossils persistently? Because when people look at fossils, they understand the invalidity of the theory of evolution. Actually fossils are one of the most copious commodities in the world.

844

Going by one's good conscience is difficult, but the fruit of it is beautiful. Logic, on the other hand, is easy to follow but its fruit is bitter.

845

The first affliction that comes upon a person when he does not act by his good conscience is the loss of his mind. Such a person would lose his mind. Would he be aware of his situation? No, he won't be aware: That is because he would be left to his intelligence alone, so he cannot understand his situation. His mind would be lost and he would be left to his intelligence alone. God generally does not take away one's intelligence, but He takes away his mind. Except for some rare occasions, God does not take away one's intelligence. However when God takes away one's mind, his intelligence would no longer have any use for him. His intelligence would only get him into troubles from then on. Intelligence would make him grovel.

846

Every disgusting act turns against the perpetrator of that act. Every tactic, every plot, every immoral act, every lie they come up with turns against them. Before all else, the radiance on their faces is taken and they lose their heads.

847

Watch the world carefully; you will see that 99% of the world acts by their logic. And all of them suffer. Show me one man who acts with his logic and who does not suffer in misery. They are all groveling. They live in incomprehensible pain. Sincere people who act with their good conscience on the other hand live a very beautiful life. Well, yes they do suffer through ordeals and face difficulties as well, but eventually God gives them relief.

848

The Prophet Joseph (pbuh) is an honest person through and through. He did not act with his instincts but with his good conscience. Where did his good conscience take him? To prison. He placed his trust in God and what happened eventually? Almighty God made him the Sultan of Egypt. He ate the most beautiful food, wore the most beautiful clothes and is given the most beautiful ranks in Heaven.

849

It might appear as if one would lose a lot when he goes by his good conscience. Actually, that would be the right form of behavior. For instance, prophets act in line with their good conscience and go to war, suffer through ordeals and pains. But eventually they become the best ones in the world.

850

No one would ever dare to act disdainfully in the Sight of God. They cannot respond in such a disdainful manner. God says, 'I will not let them speak in the Hereafter.' God says, 'slink away into it and do not speak to Me.' After God tells them not to speak, they cannot speak any more. Their tongues will be tied, God paralyzes their tongues.

851

Many youngsters are recruited forcefully by the PKK. These young people are actually injured parties; our state should regard these youngsters as the injured party and save them.

852

The youth of the MHP is a fervent, dynamic youth. We should bring them to their former vitality. That would be very nice and would bring relief to the hearts of our people. I mean, it would be perfect to bring forth the fervent enthusiasm of our nationalist idealist youth against that aggressive, unruly spirit of the PKK.

853

We have taken this land with blood, with the blood of hundreds of thousands of martyrs. Now this handful of impertinent scum say 'We are going to take this land.' Well, they can do that only if they martyr all 80 million of our people. Only then our homeland could be theirs. Other than that they cannot take away our land.

854

We have nothing to do with ISIS. While we still haven't solved the PKK problem, while we are giving martyrs every single day, if we go and attack someone with whom you have no issue, that would be a sin. That does not befit a Muslim.

855

When sending off a martyr they should do so with their own uniforms that they were martyred in, with their bloody uniforms without putting them into a coffin, out in the open. They should put them on a Turkish flag with their clothes drenched in blood and walk their blessed bodies around in the city, making the place resound with salawats, saying Allahu Akbar. That tension which will be formed would turn into an inconceivable power. The spiritual power it will provide would make the whole world quiver, let me tell you that much. Everyone would come to their senses.

856

May God give strength and power to our soldiers and protect them from treacherous bullets. May God give them grandeur. May He close the foresight of their enemies and put fear in their hearts. May God deem our soldiers victorious and wrap them with radiance. May God guide them all to His True path. And when they are martyred, may God bless their martyrdom.

857

It is the PKK that carries out human trafficking as well. It is the PKK that organizes everything from loading the refugees in those boats to causing their being drowned. That is not something that a normal person, a normal Muslim, would ever do. Only a psychopath could do something like that. These people engage in every kind of vileness for money.

858

Kurdish people are brave and loyal people. They are truehearted, noble and decent.

859

With the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) an incomprehensible richness comes about. The whole point is in doing what God demands. May God forbid, when people start going against what God demands, troubles start raining down upon people.

860

God wants love to be complete. Love God asks for would be formed when people love God in all those troubles, all those problems, that would be the love God asks for. That would be real love.

861

Bombing is religiously unlawful. That is because you wouldn't know who are the people below. The bombs hit everyone; children, families, women, civilians. That is a reflection of the US's cruelty on the world. It is not acceptable.

862

God shows people that all the cruelness, all this ruthlessness so that the system of the Mahdi could be appreciated. That is because before seeing that pain, people do not take refuge in the system of the Mahdi. This pain will be intensified even further, let me say that much. This will go on until people start searching for Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and pray to God for Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).

863

There are two dangers for Turkey. The first one is the danger of separation and the switch to a presidential system that will give the explicit green light to this danger of separation. That is because it would lead to federation and that is a grave danger. The second is the PKK terror. These two dangers should be removed right away.

864

They should call up at least four million soldiers to arms. Let us eradicate the PKK. Let us declare mobilization and put an end to this matter this time or else this will drag on and on. It will also be a blow to Europe and the deep state of the US and no one would ever dare to challenge us, to act with such impertinence and crassness again.

865

I personally sent copies of the Qur'an to the major Masonic Lodges in the US. And again for the very first time, we gave lectures on facts leading to faith and the miracles of the Qur'an in the greatest Lodge of the US.

866

All the riches escape with an immense speed from those who lack faith, from those who are weak in faith. The world constantly escapes from such people. They madly chase after worldly means and while they do so, a devastating pain settles in their souls. However, that is not what happens for a sincere Muslim. The worldly means and goods rain down on him. He escapes from goods and worldly goals but the world catches up with him and gushes over him.

867

It might appear as if a person loses a lot while acting in all sincerity; the fact is, however, that person gains a lot in secret. You look at that person and see that he gets into trouble and loses his goods, his means. However God eventually gives him abundance. In the meantime, the other one might think that he will attain goods and means by crushing his good conscience but the world escapes from him while he pursues worldly goals. That person would suffer enormously. That is a devastating groveling, a devastating chase.

868

There is no place for superstitions in faith. Religion is very rationalistic; the miracles of the Qur'an, presented with scientific evidence and facts leading to faith, all conform with rationality. The path of reason should be opened. The way to think rationally should be demonstrated. The beauty of thinking conscientiously and sincerely should be taught. When one thinks sincerely, he would attain faith anyway.

869

All over the world, they are suffering because of their weakness in faith, because of their lacking faith. Faith, on the other hand, beautifies wherever it reaches. Lack of faith destroys people. When there is weakness in faith, sufferings, insecurities and pain run rampant.

870

There are headlines in the media saying “The crying has resounded everywhere, families are miserable, etc." Does that suit us as Muslims? There are no such cries at the funerals of the PKK militants. On the contrary, they walk about with their heads held high, they promise revenge, they shout out slogans. Albeit unwittingly, reports about crying at the funerals serve as propaganda for the PKK.

871

A political understanding that puts trust on the masses of people with deficient knowledge would be a grave mistake. You cannot say, "They are like our voting pool, they are giving us plenty of votes anyway. They don't understand these matters; they do not know anything about Marxism, Leninism. They don't know the first thing about Darwinism. Let us not rake them up. Things are working fine as it is." That is because these people would come across with that information after a while and a recovery would be much more difficult in such sudden encounters. While we have the time, while we have the means, let us annihilate this trouble with science, knowledge, reason, information and love.

872

The mindset stating, "We do have such a ready mass anyway, let us use their votes freely, we can make due with them for a while," wouldn't work. The new generation is swiftly coming and they are enlightened and informed. If you do not educate them in terms of ideology, the youth would be left in the hands of Marxists, Leninists, Stalinists. If that is the case, you cannot get through, you would be brought down.

873

A political understanding, based on people lacking knowledge, would eventually emerge in university youth and high school students brought up with Marxist, Leninist thought. They would then be higher in number. Those who put their trust on the votes of this mass of people lacking information would be put down instantly. We need to educate those people and make them able to easily argue and intellectually defeat them, while we still have time.

874

How could you claim that there is no Darwinism if you are still taught in middle schools, high schools and universities, that -supposedly- " human beings came into being completely as a result of coincidences, that a bacteria reproduced in the muddy waters and that bacteria evolved and became a worm and then a frog. Later on the frogs turned into a primate, primates became monkeys, monkeys became humans"? This ideology will not go away by feigning ignorance.

875

Some say, "Is there still Darwinism?" The fact is however, in high schools, in the universities, they are teaching Darwinism day in and day out. They are asking about it in the tests and you cannot pass the exams if you do not say, "Yes, that is true." Since you would have to fail the class, since you will not be able to say anything to the contrary, that means the system is still working fiercely.

876

When people come across an ideology that they cannot deal with, they deny the existence of such ideology. They claim, for instance, "Where is Marxism, Leninism?" What is the name of the system the state fails to deal with then? Against what are you giving a struggle then? They are martyring police officers and soldiers every single day. Who are martyring them? Which ideology is the reason behind it? How could you feign ignorance?

877

If you do not train your youth against the Darwinist and materialist way of thinking, you will not be able to defeat the PKK ideologically or politically, you cannot defeat them in any other respect.

878

Albeit being wrong, the PKK militants have ideals. A great majority of our youth are brought up bereft of such ideals. If you do not raise up a youth much more stronger than the PKK's determination and their resoluteness, you cannot defeat them.

879

A great portion of our youth are brought up as people fond of turning the corner. All they care about is to get married, to get on with their own business, to have a good car and to live a joyous life. But in the ideology of the PKK, their youth aim to make Stalinism prevail as soon as possible, to unite the Middle East around the communist, Marxist, Leninist way of thinking, to establish a proletarian dictatorship and they go and sleep in the mountains in those caves to attain these goals. They do not even care about getting married, having this or that. Most of them are university drop outs; they leave their schooling and live a life concentrated merely on these goals. They read day in and day out and increase their knowledge.

880

You cannot blend peace, brotherhood, kindness and good morality with a Marxist, Leninist, Stalinist way of thinking. There is violence and terror in Marxist, Leninist, Stalinist thought. All kinds of treachery, plots and vileness are permissible until they attain their goals. They find it acceptable to rob banks, kill people, burn down places and commit sabotage; these are all permissible for them.

881

Everything you do will always go on track if you love God. If you do not love God, troubles would rain down upon you every single day. You cannot deal with that.

882

The whole point is to love God, to never forget love. The Beloved One would not be forgotten. You should never forget about God. When you are eating, when you are bathing, when you are sitting, when you are standing up, when you are in the streets, even when you are angry; the heart of a Muslim would always be full of love for God.

883

It has nothing to do with showing a lot of effort. The whole point is to love God sincerely; to love God with a deep, profound love. If you love God, you are strong. I mean if you love God a lot, you would definitely be victorious. Look I am not saying that “if you believe in God”, I am saying “if you love God”. Actually to feel love, you have to believe in Him.

884

Although the PKK has an ideology, the state does not stand against them with a counter -ideology: That is the reason why the PKK still remains active. They can only be defeated by Turkey giving an anti-Darwinist, anti-Stalinist education and by explaining the invalidity of the PKK's ideology with scientific proof.

885

Marxism is a science, but it is a false science. It is also a twisted faith. You need to respond to this twisted understanding of science with real science. If you do not respond as such, you would be defeated; if you are afraid, you would be defeated.

886

Artists are people of love. People of love live on love. Artists would die if you do not show love to them. They won't be able to perform art either. You need to applaud them, encourage them, compliment them, award them and blandish them. They need to know that they are loved to feel exuberant.

887

The PKK is very dangerous because their goal is to found a state in the southeast of Turkey and to disrupt the Islamic Union. They have their sights trained on founding a Stalinist state and then taking on the whole of Turkey and annihilating the Islamic Union. That is something even further than making an attempt on our lives.

888

They can never stop ISIS. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is the one who will stop them. No one else other than Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) could ever stop them.

889

The presidential system equals federalism. Why have our soldiers been martyred? They've been martyred just so that there will be no federalism, that there will be no separation for Turkey. And you now say, "Let us switch to a presidential system and make our country the United States of Turkey." Why have we given ten thousands of martyrs then? That would not be fitting, either to our martyrs and to the respect for the Turkish Nation.

890

When Almighty God gives one love and depth, if He gives him faith, the aether material enters into his service by the leave of God. Aether material is a watery material that the infinite Wisdom of God is nested in. We are swimming inside that right now.

891

Heaven is an art gallery. God is the greatest Artist. God furnishes everywhere with works of art in Heaven. Why? For us to live love. Art equals love, love equals art.

892

There is a Stalinist, communist uprising and these people are determined to establish a communist state in the region. Let us deal a blow to their ideology. Darwinism should be taught in schools, but the comprehensive scientific response should be given as well. Communism should be taught, but its invalidity should be taught as well. We can only attain results if we respond with knowledge and information.

893

In cases of terrorist attacks soldiers, police officers and citizens should by no means be held responsible for their acts in self defense. It is urgent to formalize this with laws.

894

Fervent love to twelve imams is nice. Some people only talk about twelve imams very rarely. That is not something pleasant, they will not be able to make use of their benediction. Those who do not love the twelve imams do not love our Prophet (saas), either: Those who do not love Hazrat Ali (ra) do not love our Prophet (saas), either.

895

Alawites are perfect people. The Alawite way of thinking is a very, very beautiful way of thinking. Their love is beautiful, their profundity is beautiful. Our Alawite brothers are architects of love. But real Alawites; those who attained the secret of meaning, who are wise, who attained depth. Other ones are still on the road, insha'Allah.

896

The struggle against the PKK is carried out for the defense of our homeland and our people. We are giving a struggle for our existence and avoiding annihilation. Our soldiers should do whatever must be done. This is a religious obligation. It is unlawful to avoid struggling against the PKK. All sorts of studies that could be done in the struggle against the PKK are religiously lawful.

897

The PKK is like a flock of wild animals, they distress people, they make them uncomfortable. They attack their stores. They vandalize their furniture, their belongings. The state should take the necessary actions instantly. They should immediately call up two million reserve soldiers. If it is not enough, another two million should be recalled. That would make four million. We already have 600,000 soldiers on active duty; that would make us the greatest army of the world. They should all be given automatic weapons to form a deterrent power. They would then shut the place down.

898

I love every Muslim because they say, "La Ilaha Illa Allah Muhammad Ar-Rasul Allah." If they have a fault, I correct them by talking to them, not by bombing them, not by killing them. Was our Prophet (saas) preaching the message of God in Sud'Ukaz (the Market of Ukaz) by killing them? He was talking to them one by one. There were hypocrites, Buddhists, unbelievers, Masons around and he used to talk to every one of them.

899

The majority of the arrested PKK militants are released shortly after. Urgent arrangements should be made in the justice system regarding this and the punishments should be increased.

900

The forty year life of the antichrist is over. It is a religious obligation to annihilate the PKK. That means it is necessary for every Muslim to struggle against them. Anything to the contrary is religiously unlawful. The necessary actions will be taken. The PKK will be annihilated with laws and the legal system.

901

The corrupted ones in the deep state have crushed our Kurdish people intensely, they have ruined them. They literally made them go insane. They made them say “We will break away, we will leave. Enough is enough." As a matter of fact, that was the goal of the deep state anyway, to make them break away and leave. To found a communist state and ruin the Kurdish people. And they are deceived by that. They should actually act in a way that is the exact opposite of what the deep state demands.

902

Kurdish people are radiant. Many of the mujtahids, mujaddids of the End Times are all Kurdish. Kurdish people are religious, decent, honest, brave, chivalrous, immaculate people. They have all the characteristics of Muslims and that is why I love them all very dearly. I am hostile to the PKK. Kurdish people are my friends. The PKK is perfidious, whereas Kurdish people are radiant.

903

Changes should be made in the anti-terror law; there should be no penal sanctions in case our citizens defend themselves against the PKK.

904

When thought about sincerely, it will be seen that the HDP is a virtual party. It is not a settled political party with an actual base of voters. It is merely a party pulling in votes with the threat of the PKK, standing afoot with the threat of the PKK. Without the threat of the PKK, there would be no party such as the HDP.

905

The US has always supported communist terror organizations everywhere in the world in the beginning and then slaughtered them tragically. And they did this to every single one of them, without exception. They will do the same to the PKK as well.

906

We cannot search for all those acts that are lawful in the Qur'an. Only the unlawful acts can be searched for in the Qur'an. That is because the number of unlawful acts is very few. When there is a proof in the Qur'an for something being unlawful, there is nothing further to discuss . But if there is no command in the Qur'an proving that something is unlawful, nothing can be banned based on superstitions.

907

Crying for a martyr is not compatible with an Islamic upbringing. Our Prophet (saas) has prohibited it. Crying, mourning is found in all the pagan customs of the ancient Sumerians, the Akkadians, the Hittites, ancient Egypt, ancient Greece. They lament, they cry. But in Islam being a veteran, being a martyr is an honor.

908

How could it be acceptable to cry after a martyr? It is a great honor, why are you not delighted? What is the reason for your being in this world? Isn't Heaven, the good pleasure of God, His blessing your goal? The martyr instantly passes to Heaven, what else do you want?

909

There is a spiritual void. We need to educate our people. Or else you build bridges and they simply lay hold of them and they become the bridges of the PKK. They go and name it the 'Stalin Bridge'. They change the name 'Ataturk' to 'Lenin' on every building. You make a great effort to build them and they simply confiscate them. That is why spirituality comes first; faith comes first.

910

They have raised heaven and earth during the Gezi Park incidents just because a few trees were cut down. The PKK is martyring our young saplings, our lions, every single day and these people don't even care. They do not even deal with it. They don't make even a peep for our martyrs.

911

There is a terrifying impassiveness in some young girls and young men. They are all about their apparel, their fun, their pleasure and razzle-dazzle. They just concentrate on going to a good school, having a good business, getting on the gravy train, getting married, getting ahead of their friends. Their mind is solely occupied with these. On the other hand, our homeland is in danger, our flag is in danger, our religion is in danger and these people do not even see the danger. They simply say 'So long as it is not at my door'. But if you go on like this, it will probably be at your door soon, today or the day after; you need to understand this.

912

Those girls in the PKK are lying on the rocks in the mountains for their void, superstitious causes. Some of our young girls are acting as if they are 'Snow White'. They only are interested in getting married, in being rich. They just concentrate on finding a suitable groom for themselves. Have a look at the ideological determination of the PKK and then at the impassiveness and the worldly ambitions of some of our people. That is not the way to go. There is a need for the spirit of a man of cause, a national conscious.

913

Those soldiers are blessed with the rank of martyrdom and you feel yourself distressed and pained, how is that possible? What does being a soldier mean? It means learning the art of dying and killing for the good pleasure of God, for our homeland. God is the One Who gives life and He is the One Who makes them become martyrs. What more do you ask for? Martyrdom is the highest rank for a soldier.

914

The body of the martyr should be shown all around the city. The funerals of martyrs are important. The invocations saying "Allahu Akbar" should resound in the city. At least a million people should gather. Then the national conscious would spurred. The whole country would benefit from the spirituality of the martyr.

915

God says 'Be'. And it happens. The word 'be' becomes alive. That word becomes alive. And everything it touches does whatever is needed to be done. That also consists of aether material. That word is energy. Every word is energy. God's wisdom is in that energy.

916

Right now we are swimming in that aether material. Aether is a material that holds the wisdom of God. It enters and exists everywhere. It is inside the staff of the Prophet Moses (pbuh), inside the veins of the bushes, inside the burning flames.

917

The aether material used by God is all-pervading. It consists of conscious, pure consciousness. What they call energy is actually pure consciousness. The infinite wisdom of God moves inside that.

918

The people of Heaven, those created for Heaven are conscious, sentient people, those who are created for Hell, the people of Hell on the other hand, are in oblivion.

919

It is the arrests that would cripple the PKK the most. They will be over once we arrest five thousand, ten thousand people. That would cripple the organization.

920

It is very important to recruit new soldiers and increase the number of our soldiers. If we recruit two million soldiers, that would be an amazing deterrent. Having large numbers of soldiers and tanks will completely demoralize the PKK.

921

“Shia” means follower. They are the Shias of Hazrat Ali (ra), they are his followers and at the same time all Shias are the Shias of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), followers of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). When Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh)'s name is mentioned, they almost go mad with love. Shias' personality, their understanding of love, is very nice in that respect, their loyalty is perfect. That is why God gives them strength and power.

922

Our Prophet (saas) stated that the Star of Bethlehem will appear at the time of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). The Star of Bethlehem appeared recently. It appears once every 2,000 years; it appeared at the birth of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and once at the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).

923

Easing religion is the responsibility of the Mahdi. Right now, they have made it heavier and made it unbearable for people. They have ruined religion. The Mahdi will take off those loads weighing tons and make religion easy and light; religion will be made suitable to human nature. He will make people turn towards true religion.

924

We are rapidly heading towards a period that brings peace, happiness and beauty, one in which bloodshed is ended. After a short while, not even a drop of blood would be shed, not even the noses of people would bleed. They will see this. Our Kurdish brothers should be patient for a little longer.

925

Our Kurdish brothers are such immaculate and blessed people; they are honorable, proud people. The PKK, on the other hand, is perfidious and vicious. They are debasing our Kurdish people. Forcefully taking their money, taking their children away under coercion, barging into their homes by force, breaking their windows and shooting them inside their homes. We need to stake our claim on our Kurdish brothers and prioritize them in everything.

926

The word "process" is used as a veil to cover the danger. When that is the case, people do not develop an ambition to save the Southeast. They do not have an ambition to save their nation, their religion. The word "process" is merely rhetoric used to deceive our people. I consider all those who use the word with good intentions free of this, but the "process" is merely an attempt to lull or pacify our people and veil the danger that is right before them.

927

If our youth receive education 30 hours a week, or at least 25 hours of them are on Darwinism and on the one remaining hour, you say, "I will teach you about Islam" you would thus be surrendering to the antichrist without even being aware.

928

When courses on national conscience take their place in the curriculum, youngsters will become keen and active. Instead they now go and play dice, etc. Most are only concerned about where they can get their next fix of drugs or of whatever they engage themselves with. That is what happens when a person does not have a cause to fight for. Why don't the PKK terrorists use drugs? Because they do have a cause to fight for, albeit an evil, atrocious, immoral one. Our youngsters too should have a goal to fight for.

929

Martyrs should not be washed, they should be buried with the uniforms they wore. Not even the slightest sign of sadness should be displayed. That is because martyrdom is a rank praised by God.

930

The PKK is constantly taking up arms in the Southeast. There is no such thing to be called a "process”. What the PKK understood from the concept of this process was to have the Southeast delivered to the PKK, to have Abdullah Öcalan released and for him to be assigned as the president of that region.

931

Female PKK militants are lying among the rocks. On the other hand, a great majority of our young girls are only trained in matters such as what kind of a spouse they should be choosing, who would they be marrying, what kind of a job should they be choosing, how would they attain their personal interests. They need to be given courses on national conscience.

932

Causing the slaughter of Muslims is exactly like actually slaughtering them. The reward of it in the Hereafter would be eternal Hell. If they are somehow mistaken, you correct them with science and knowledge.

933

Iran is our friend and ally. We need to love Iran. Animosity against Iran is not right. We need to be friends with Iran. Shias are very immaculate, devout people. They are Godfearing. Animosity against Shias is atrocious.

934

If they were to throw down books on the PKK, it would be an incredible shock for them. If they were told about the invalidity of Darwinism, materialism, if books were distributed to people with trucks, with helicopters and planes, if they were told about the falsity of the PKK’s ideology, the Earth would move. The plots of the deep states of the US and the UK would be disrupted. That would raise a stink worldwide.

935

The youth of the PKK is given an amazing political training and an astounding military training. But our youth is not given such an education. Our youth is not given such political consciousness- raising. They do not receive such military training in that sense either. That is why they are able to challenge great Turkey with a handful of scum. America also supports them covertly.

936

God has sent ISIS as a scourge to the PKK. It is a scourge on them in response to their unruliness. But of course, we always want everything to be solved with ideas and science.

937

The body would never want death and fading away. The cells do not want it. That is something that gives the sharpest pain to one. God takes away this pain with Islam.

938

Those who do not have faith in the Hereafter would be distressed; their faces, their souls would be darkened. But those with faith in the Hereafter would feel as if they have been given a great glad tiding in their souls, telling them that they will live eternally. Their hearts would then feel relieved.

939

In regard to the future, the Hereafter is the only goal for Muslim. The Hereafter is the joy and reward of a Muslim. A Muslim always hopes for Heaven. A Muslim fears going to Hell but always think about Heaven and concentrates on Heaven.

940

The PKK is the greatest threat both to our borders and in Turkey. They have invaded our Southeast region and gained dominance there and our borders have also been invaded from end to end.

941

Muslims are charged with saving Muslims. You cannot discard them saying that they are terrorists. You cannot discard them saying they engage in violence. They can be Muslims but they can also be at fault, they can be mistaken. You correct their mistakes, their faulty ways.

942

I would not want anyone to die. Even if he is a terrorist, I wouldn't want him dead. But we should drain their swamp. We need to blow up their roads, their bridges and wreck their caves so that they can more easily surrender. For instance, blowing up their ammunition warehouses is acceptable. They would not be able to behave in such an unruly manner.

943

Crying is not acceptable for us. We did not cry in Çanakkale. We did not cry in Dumlupınar. We did not cry in Malazgirt. Why would we cry? As a nation who desires martyrdom, as a nation who regards martyrdom as an honor, why would we cry for martyrs?

944

I would never discard any Muslim community as a whole. No matter what kind of a sin they committed, they are Muslims in any case. We are to love Muslims. They might make mistakes, they might have flaws, we are to simply correct their ways. We are to talk to them and tell them the falsity of their ways.

945

Moschiach, Mahdi is awaited in the whole world; he is expected as the one who will disentangle the Masonic knot.

946

There is also another power higher than the Illuminati. They are the ones drawing the form the world should take with a compass and a protractor.

947

It is the deep state of the world that decides if Syria is to be demolished and torn to pieces and the issue is endorsed by the American deep state. They are the ones selected to carry out the task. They take on the task and put it into practice.

948

There is a deep global state known as the Illuminati, consisting of 200 to 300 people. They are the ones making decisions on wars; matters such as stopping wars, which countries to bring devastation upon, which countries will be victorious, are all decided by them. If a new country is to be founded, they are the ones to decide that as well.

949

It seems as if the deep states of the related countries are the ones that made the decision to stir up trouble and declare war in a country but the deep states of those respective countries are actually mere instruments. It is the global deep that gives the order. The American deep state is not a serious force in this respect either. They are merely obeying orders.

950

America believes that we have to suffer through very formidable and bloody days for the second coming of Jesus Messiah. That is why they are turning the world into a sea of blood for Jesus to appear and for the Last Day to become imminent. That is a big mistake.

951

If we declare mobilization, that would make the PKK incredibly afraid. If we enlist one million soldiers, we would have one million 600 thousand soldiers with our 600 thousand currently active soldiers on duty. That would constitute an amazingly intimidating force.

952

It would be an enormous spiritual motivation for our people if they photographed and published the aftermath of the attacks against the PKK. That would also wreck the PKK in terms of morality.

953

If you give a Darwinist education night and day, communism would of course keep snowballing. You are thus adding fuel to the flames. Darwinism is the fuel of those flames. If you teach your youth the primary philosophy of communism in your middle schools, high schools and universities, if you tell them that their ancestors are microbes formed in swamps, they would of course become communists eventually.

954

In regards to deterrence, our police and soldiers should have more powerful weapons. Having long lasting armed conflicts should be out of question. If they know that we do have such state of the art weapons, they wouldn't even be able to come near. But if they know that we have only outdated weapons, they would dare to attack.

955

The only thing God asks us is to be loved. God says, “Love Me deeply. Feel a great affection for Me, so that I will give you all kinds of blessings and make you happy. And that would make Me pleased in return."

956

The 55th verse of Surat An-Nur refers to the global sovereignty of the moral values of the Qur'an. The whole of Surat Al-Kahf depicts the system of the Mahdi. Surah Yusuf and the story of the Prophet Solomon (pbuh) is almost a summary of the system of the Mahdi.

957

It is a grave viciousness for the US to deliver weapons to the PYD-PKK. They should leave aside this insanity; they are acting unhinged. These people, the PKK, are communists, Stalinists while you are anti-communist. Why did you wage war in Vietnam, in Korea then? Why did you give such a struggle in Cambodia and Laos? If communism is that good, why have you been waging war against it all those years? They are acting really irrationally.

958

Some people keep asking, "Why didn't the moral values of Islam prevail?" You are presenting a hellish life to people in the name of Islam. The fact is that Islam means love, beauty, joy, happiness, pleasantness, honesty and cleanliness. So what are you doing? You are merely presenting them a hellish life. You forbade everything and you do that claiming that you are acting in the name of God. Do those limits you force onto people have any place in the Qur'an? No, they don't. You are simply cooking all those up yourself.

959

It is not a skill to turn religion into something inextricable. This bigoted mentality is what makes these people, the great portion of Muslims, irreligious.

960

They are trying to alienate people from religion. For instance they say, 'There is no music in religion.' People then take a dislike towards religion. What else? They say, 'There are no paintings in religion.' Laughing? They claim that it is unlawful as well. Well then my brother, are you trying to make people insane? According to their twisted minds, young girls are unable to put on makeup, they are unable to be sleek. Set them free, let them have fun and be beautiful. Instead, they are presenting a hellish life in the name of religion.

961

This huge world is big enough for everyone. Why is there the need for all this rampaging, all this lovelessness? Why do you allocate your time for hatred? Devote your time to love and have peace of mind. Why do you distress yourself?

962

If people act sincerely and look for love, God turns the world into heaven on earth.

963

Almighty God says that His sincere servants will be saved. God attaches great importance to sincerity. When we see insincerity, we feel a sense of repulsion. We dislike it, we find it cold and evil. Sincerity, on the other hand, makes us feel relieved and comfortable.

964

Sincerity is an immense comfort. Sincerity makes one beautiful. Those who are sincere know what love is. Those who are not sincere are crooks; they are evil.

965

The best course of action is to be forgiving, to act as people of peace, to see goodness in everything. People are created as weak, they are not strong enough to deal with troubles. Feeling rage towards one, messing with another person, screaming at them, conspiring against another: All you have is a small, weak body. How can your weak body deal with all that pain, with all that filth? Be honest, sincere and immaculate.

966

Sincere people are beautiful; crooked people on the other hand are really ugly. People find ease and comfort in honesty. Lies distress people, make them feel suffocated. People are created weak anyway. It becomes devastating when all those negative things are loaded upon one and it deranges one's mind and [damages their] health.

967

Having a glorious, scary army is the Sunnah of our Prophet (saas). For instance, he didn't let the soldiers cut their mustaches short; they even grew their nails. The Companions of our Prophet (saas) had such a ravenous and scary appearance. They had handlebar moustaches reaching till the ends of their ears. Those who looked at them were shivering with fear, they feared them greatly. It would be great if our soldiers had such a staggering appearance. Especially regarding the PKK; our soldiers should be their nightmare.

968

The PKK is a whip God uses for Islam to prevail, for pushing Muslims. Muslims were asleep, so God awakens Muslims with such trouble, with such a corruption. This feeling of honor is one of the means that wonderfully exalts spirituality. When there is a Pharaoh, there is a Moses. These are the Pharaohs of this age.

969

The government should press the issue of Darwinism. Darwinism is a system that directly denies God: The whole world denies God in schools. This is the promised antichrist; Darwin is an antichrist. He is the person who developed the idea of denying God. Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Hitler and Mussolini all derived their ideologies from that philosophy. The antichrist has a committee and those committees have sub-committees. The PKK is a structure that has ideological connections to those committees.

970

Weakness of faith is the greatest illness in the world. It is what lies at the root of all the pains suffered, all the ordeals and diseases. It is what lies at the root of all troubles, hunger and economic crises going on in this world. God turns this world into Heaven for those with strong faith.

971

We like hardships as well. We do not like a plain, monotonous life either. For instance, if a person we love suffers through ordeals and meets challenges for us, we love them even more. Self-seeking love has no meaning.

972

Almighty God created this world metaphysically. He doesn't like a plain life. He wants life to be vigorous, full of wars, heroism and bravery. As a result of all those hardships, Islam prevails in the world. God likes this.

973

Unless the PKK comes to faith, they would never be saved from their troubles. They are evidently the army of the antichrist. And they will be drowned in the sea of troubles just like the army of the Pharaoh. They should pull themselves together. They should start believing and save themselves. They will save themselves if they say, "La ilaha Illa Allah Muhammed Ar-Rasul Allah." They should pull themselves out of this sea of filth.

974

At the time of the Mahdi (pbuh), God's Name Al-Hadi (The Guide) prevails in the world. As Mahdi (pbuh) passes away, God's name "Al-Hadi" will be withdrawn from the world and His Name that causes people go astray will start to manifest itself. Jesus Messiah will live for a short period of time in this world anyway and after he passes away, people will go crazy. The world will turn into a living hell.

975

A gloom pervades the whole world after Mahdi (pbuh) passes away. Everyone would try to preserve their faith, but faith would constantly regress. God's Name that causes people to go astray will then prevail in the world after that.

976

The separation of our country has no place in destiny but in order to awaken the ummah, there is a need for the antichrist. The antichrist crows like a rooster and awakens people. Or else people would continue to sleep. Without the antichrist, people would not take action. Once it fulfills its duty, all of them would disappear.

977

What is a prayer? It is love and respect. If you show love and respect, in response to your love and respect, God creates a beauty for you as a gesture. These are mutual demonstrations of love.

978

God says 'You are to love for Me, you are to love Me. You are to love Me to death.' And so we love our Lord to death. God wants to be loved purely and wholeheartedly. God is entitled to such love.

979

God doesn't want to be loved ordinarily, He doesn't want a monotonous love either. No one would want such a love. What good would a monotonous, plain love do? You give money and in return she loves you. She loves you because of your profession. She loves you because of her own interests. There is no such love.

980

God wants an insanely deep love. God is very meticulous about love. In God, there is a complete manifestation of a lover. He ruins those who betray His love but He loves those who respond to His love with love for all eternity.

981

God does not want us to be alone. God wants us to be in love with Him. He loves loving, He loves to be loved, He loves beauty.

982

What the US wants is to open up some land for the PKK. I mean they are trying to vacate ISIL from the region and have the PKK settled there so that they can found a state there. Everyone should see this plot.

983

Let us please put aside the habit of crying at the funerals of martyrs. It is not in compliance with the Qur'an, it is not in compliance with our customs; there is no such habit in the morality of Islam. That is a custom observed since the ancient Sumerians. It is not appropriate to cry after those who have gone to Heaven.

984

What they mean by "Solution Process" is the PKK founding a state there and making Abdullah Öcalan the president of that state; it is snatching up that region from Turkey and settling in a Stalinist, communist, predatory, red regime in that region: This is what they mean by the “solution process”.

985

It is a religious obligation on Muslims to annihilate the PKK with laws and the legal system. It is religiously unlawful to refrain from struggling against the PKK.

986

Laying down weapons is something the PKK would never accept. First of all that is against Marxist, communist, Stalinist principles. These people have been trained as communists, Stalinists. Stalinism is reliant upon weapons. Why should they lay down their weapons? Would they ever leave their weapons simply because you asked them to do so? That can only be possible with education. You can only do that if you stop this Darwinist, materialist education system and teach creation and the existence and oneness of God.

987

Muslims are inoffensive people. It is not at all rational for them to be at each other's throat. You've been oppressed by everyone anyway, you've been exiled, you've been devastated. Why is there the need for you to oppress one another? These are all foolish acts. Wherever we go, we see that they are in a wretched state. We look at Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen; they are all very poor and miserable. Why is there the need for such conflicts? Unite and be brothers. Live a beautiful, humble, rich, healthy, pleasant life.

988

Sunnis, Shias, Wahhabis; these are all equal to one another, they are all the same. They are all brothers. Getting into a struggle against one another is impertinence. They should strive for Islamic Union. Try to unite all Muslims and make an effort for this. Tell people about the necessity of the Islamic Union.

989

Islamic Union means love of God. It is the name of love for God. If they do not want Islamic Union, then troubles would continue to rain down on them and no one could stop them up until the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).

990

Right now, the terrorists have incomprehensive advantages because they disregard the laws. We, on the other hand, abide by the laws. We have to follow the law to the letter. The laws should be made to be in favor of our citizens in all regards.

991

In the struggle against the PKK, we need to follow the policy that states "the enemy of my enemy is my friend." I mean the state should follow this policy no matter what.

992

ISIS has some mistakes and deficiencies: They do not abide by the Qur'an. They make additions to the commands of the Qur'an from Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmidhi. Just like many other conservative Orthodox Muslims, just like Shias, Sunnis, Wahhabis, they are making additions; and that is what happens when you make additions. Violence and terror comes about. I am against violence. We know from the hadiths that this will all be put right when Mahdi (pbuh) comes.

993

I do not accept the violence inflicted neither by ISIS, nor by the PKK or indeed any other terror organization. We want love, peace and reason to prevail instead of violence; we want everything to be solved with facts leading to faith, with the miracles of the Qur'an and with the understanding of deep love as described in the Qur'an.

994

No Kurdish person in his right mind would ever want a Kurdistan fragmented from Turkey. Someone living in Mardin might feel like going to İzmir and can get on a bus to go there; he feels like going to İstanbul and he can do so. Why should that person need a passport, or a visa to go there? Why should there be the need for that? Why are you imprisoning them in those highlands to be slaves there to a communist government, to a communist state, to a communist dictatorship espousing violence and terror: No sane Kurdish person would ever want that.

995

First you need to explain the falsity of communism, Marxism, Darwinism, materialism, Godlessness, Booklessness. First you need to conquer them ideologically. Later on they can lay down weapons, stop acting abnormally and leave their idiocy.

996

Almighty God could have created us like robots, but He doesn't like that. God is pleased with humans more because they are able to think freely. That is because humans know both cruelty and goodness. But angels are unable to act cruelly, they do not have such an ability.

997

God says that the majority of people will not believe and those who do not are not alive. He says that they are dead, not alive. If one takes unbelievers as the basis for his conduct, he would be abiding those who are not alive, he would be influenced by those who are dead. That would mean that he is influenced by those in the grave. That would be a colossal mistake. One should never take unbelievers as basis. One should have a direct and pure faith.

998

The fact there are a lot of people who remain aloof from religion is what deceives people and is what constitutes an excuse for them. First of all, one needs to ignore them completely. One needs to look at the direct evidence of God's existence and be in direct contact with God.

999

God regards martyrdom as the highest form of love. That is what God likes the most. But of course the most acceptable martyrdom is attained while one is actually striving on the path of God. That is because such a person goes to war openly knowing that it is possible that he will be killed and will be martyred there. Going on a struggle on the path of God, without feeling fear, is what is most acceptable.

1000

Why would the PKK lay down weapons? It would have been good if they had of course, but they would never do so. All their executives are insistently declaring that. That is because the HDP would disappear and then so would the PKK. A terror organization would never renounce terror unless they reach their goal.

1001

PYD, YPG, YPJ, PJAK; all these are the same with the PKK. Changing names is merely a vicious ploy.

1002

The Solution Process is a means for stalling the Turkish Nation. It is a psychological action done to distract our attention, to demotivate and dishearten us, to remove the reflex of defense.

1003

If you believe in Islam and the Qur'an, unbelief would certainly be defeated. God states in the Qur'an that unbelief would certainly be defeated. Lenin was defeated, Marx was defeated. Darwin was defeated; they all have been defeated. The PKK will be defeated as well.

1004

At least about 10,000 arrests should be done against the PKK, for everything to cool down. And those arrested should not be released. They should widen the scope of the related articles of the law. The characteristic of the crime is truly perilous; they intend to subvert the Turkish state, martyr our police officers and our soldiers. All these are crimes that require life imprisonment. They would quail once they see this. They would not come to their senses any other way.

1005

If they succeed in collapsing the Darwinist/ materialist system, that would be the greatest victory of Turkey; it would be a worldwide victory. That is because Darwinism- may God forbid- is an ideology challenging God. There has never been such a colossal system of idolatry denying God in the history of the world. There is nothing similar to that in the ten thousand year history of the world.

1006

Martyrs should not be washed. Martyrs are to be buried with their blood, in their uniforms. They are buried not with bands playing, but with takbirs, with salawats.

1007

First of all, in terms of morality, girls should be claimed and looked after everywhere; they should be loved everywhere. A weird ferocity is going on all around. Their happiness means the happiness of the world. Their being loved means the world being loved. Without them being happy, the world would not be happy either.

1008

All problems should be solved with knowledge, science and love. Neither ISIS nor the PKK need bombing; they need science and knowledge. We do not need a single drop of blood. We do not want to awaken a sleeper. We do not want anyone even to have a bleeding nose.

1009

Those who claim that Mahdi will not come are unaware of the fact that they are simply preparing the foundation for the appearance of the Mahdi.

1010

Unbelief, rebellion and heresy are disorders that should be wiped off the face of this world. God has clearly commanded in the Qur'an "...fight against them until there is no more oppression and all worship is devoted to God alone." God says that unbelief can never be successful. He says, "I will annihilate unbelief, you should only hold on to reason."

1011

It is a religious obligation to devastate the PKK; using laws and the legal system they should all be caught and put into prison.

1012

We need to raise a faithful youth with a national conscience by carrying out Qur'anic studies and teaching facts leading to faith. We need to raise conscientious youngsters who espouse national sentiments and national consciousness. There might be a course on "national consciousness" in the curriculum and the invalidity of Darwinism and communism can be taught in those lessons.

1013

If the state keeps teaching Darwinism night and day in the middle schools, high schools and universities, if they instill the falsehood claiming "you have come into existence by means of coincidences from muddy waters, your forefathers are microbes, those microbes have turned into worms, those worms have turned into frogs, those frogs have turned into primates, those primates have turned into monkeys and eventually monkeys have turned into humans," of course the world would be filled with communists and you cannot deal with them.

1014

We do not want Incirlik base to be used against ISIS. The US is openly supporting the PKK and because they believe that ISIS will interfere with the PKK, they want ISIS out of that region and have the PKK settled in the area. They want to use the Turkish air bases to that end; they want to use them to commit these murders. Turkey cannot be a part of this scourge, she cannot participate in this horrible act. Throwing her weight about it, Turkey should refuse to take part in this ignominy no matter what.

1015

Shaking off the PKK can only be possible with the system of the Mahdi. Shaking off the radical organizations in the region can only be possible with the system of the Mahdi. That is because all of them originate from an ideology: Consequently, all of them can be put right with ideas. Right now the supreme, the highest, most undefeatable, the most invincible idea is the system of the Mahdi.

1016

We all know that ISIS has some erroneous aspects. However they are under the influence of traditional books and works. Their wrongs can very well be righted with education. Everyone sees that they are on the wrong path. Actually even the PKK could be made right with education, both of them could be put right with education.

1017

It is religiously unlawful for Muslims to slaughter Muslims. While there is a threat as the PKK for us, it is not possible to have a concern that could be called the threat of ISIS. We need to focus all our attention on the PKK. We would not come to blows with ISIS, who does not touch Turkey simply because the deep state of the US demands that we do so.

1018

God wants to be loved at the cost of one's life. That is why God loves martyrs. That is because God is the One Who gives that life. That is exactly the characteristic of a lover. But when He is not loved, God takes revenge. He says, "I create horror and I do not fear the horror that takes place. Love Me and I will love you." That is such a beautiful offer, such a beautiful response.

1019

God is a Lover, He loves love. He avenges when He doesn't find love. God doesn't want betrayal of His love. That is also embedded in the human soul. God says, "I want love. I want you to love Me madly. I will love you and you are to love Me. But if you do not, I will hurt you like every lover." God also takes revenge. That suits God, it suits His beauty.

1020

ISIS is a heavenly disaster cast upon the PKK by God. He created them as a scourge on the PKK. Such scourges were cast upon the people of Ad and Thamud as well, upon those unruly, Godless, Bookless people. God has sent such a flood upon these ignoble persecutors, such a flood of disasters.

1021

Both Muslims (people symbolized with the crescent) and Christians (people symbolized with the cross) love God and strive to be the servants of God, they are not brawling. Why should they have? Crescent and cross will ally with each other in the End Times and make Islam prevail in the world.

1022

The deep state of the US, in their own minds, wants to force Turkey into a war with ISIS. They imagine that we will shed Muslim blood. No such thing will happen, the US should forget about this.

1023

Using the excuse of ISIS, they want to attack bearded Muslims, Muslims covering their heads, those who perform prayers; they want to attack mosques. They are instigating our people, they are inciting the Turkish nation. They say, "He might be from ISIS if he has a beard so you should attack him." They are also instigating Turkish soldiers, Turkish police officers against ISIS by saying, "Go shoot them, go kill them." The fact is that the PKK is the only danger for Turkey. ISIS poses no threat to Turkey.

1024

Weapons and bombs are the snares of the satan. Satan constantly demands blood. Bloodshed is the major characteristic of the satan. It feeds on blood. It doesn't get enough of human blood. First it played such a number on the sons of the Prophet Adam(pbuh); God tells us about this in the story of the Cain and Abel. Cain martyred his brother, shed his brother's blood. See that God says, "So his lower self persuaded him to kill his brother." That happens under the influence of satan.

1025

Saying "I do not like the opinions of this person, so I will bomb him," is not acceptable. You simply talk to him, explain things to him and if he doesn't acknowledge the truth, it is all you can do. If he does acknowledge the truth, that would be great. There is no compulsion in religion. There is no such method of knocking sense into a person with bombs and weapons.

1026

What does letting Turkey be divided mean? It means destroying the whole Islamic world, the whole Turkish world. We would be enraged, we would be furious if that happens. We would never, ever let that happen. We would do whatever is necessary to prevent that with the laws and the legal system.

1027

It is alright to listen to music, it is alright to have fun and to laugh. Anything to the contrary would disrupt human nature; it would destabilize one's balance. May God forbid, you would make yourself fall ill if you disrupt your nature. Be joyous, be happy, have fun, laugh and be playful. That is how God created you. Otherwise, you turn in on yourself, you become ill, your health would then be disrupted, you would then lose your strength to think. It also makes it impossible for you to live by Islam.

1028

They have provoked all the hodjas to strive to stop the system of the Mahdi, to stop the Islamic Union. They are all repeating the same things in chorus saying, "The Mahdi (pbuh) will not come, Jesus (pbuh) will not come, Islamic Unity will not be formed." By doing so, they are trying to demotivate Muslims in their own minds. Actually, their saying, "They are not going to come," is merely another portent of the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).

1029

Right now the PKK relies on the US. However, it is obvious that the deep state of the US will eventually crush them. They have done that in many other countries; they have always supported communist groups and then crushed them tragically. These ones [the PKK] are sucked into the same foolishness.

1030

God has already created Heaven and He says that it is ready for us right now. And He tells us that Muslims are living in there right now. God does not leave anything hazy or undetermined. God says, "It is there right now." We do not see it now because of our dimension in time.

1031

A Muslim trusts the promise of God. Almighty God says, "I do not break My promise. If you attain sincerity, if you become Muslims, I will put you in My Heaven." A Muslim would not, and cannot, say. "I wonder if that is true."

1032

If one concentrates well enough, deep faith would settle in him completely; it would be crystal clear in his mind. Those who can analyze and see this world well would be able to see Heaven well as well. Those who understand and grasp the system here very well, would understand Heaven very well as well.

1033

Heaven is immaculately clean. There are paintings in Heaven, there is music, there is beauty. All the women are very well kept and well-groomed in Heaven. Turn this world you are living in into Heaven on Earth; why do you have to turn it into hell? God wants us to turn this world into Heaven with our faith, with our intelligence, with our efforts.

1034

Clean and purify yourself. Muslims are clean, immaculate, pure people. What does pure mean? It means purified. God gives people weaknesses and we are to get rid of those impurities and weaknesses, and attain the beauty of Heaven. A Muslim would be radiant and immaculately clean.

1035

They have misrepresented Islam as ugly and frightening. They have misrepresented it as a system of violence, as a hellish movement. They have misrepresented Muslims as killing machines, as fond of massacres, and thus caused people to take a great dislike to Islam. The fact of the matter is, however, that Islam means beauty, aesthetics, arts, reason, knowledge, culture, understanding, goodness and sincerity.

1036

Those with the characteristics of the Pharaoh would be jealous when they see Muslims' success. A Muslim is an individual with the highest quality, the highest level of intelligence. A Muslim is the best person in the world. Islam does not promote a corrupt, rotten mindset.

1037

Radicals have no say in defeating Darwinism, which is the greatest movement of the antichrist of all times. There is no effort that scientifically defeats this movement of the antichrist, other than ours. There is no one else who preaches the message of God in this way, other than us. There might be some efforts here and there, but all of them remain weak when compared to ours.

1038

It would not bother us if our Kurdish brothers establish a state outside the borders of the Turkish Republic. We would be proud to see them there, so long as they behave in an Islamic manner.

1039

The American deep state should stop protecting those PKK villains. They are protecting and watching over those immoral, filthy scum. That is atrocious. If that goes on, the US will fall into disgrace all over the world.

1040

We would be enraged with any movement that intends to close the door to the Turkish Islamic Union, to Islamic Unity. I mean that would bring about the Last Day, that would be the end of the whole world. That is our natural right; we want to live independently and at ease in our own country.

1041

Do you know what Darwinism says? The Torah, the Gospel and the Qur'an are all telling lies (may God forbid); there is no such thing that can be called Holy Books. There is no such thing as Prophets, it claims. There is no such thing as the Hereafter, there is no Hell, there is no Heaven, there are no angels; this is what Darwinism teaches. If you teach this philosophy of denial in schools, and if you do not teach the proper response, you would be opening the door to all sorts of disasters.

1042

Darwinism is the real reason behind the collapse of the Ottomans. At the time of Abdulhamid, Darwinism was being taught in all schools.

1043

Which American would China treat in the way he treats Uighur Turks? They can never do something like that. They should leave aside this impertinence and this lack of good conscience. They are to treat Uighur Turks in the way they treat the citizens of the UK, the US and Holland. This should be their standard.

1044

Why is there the need for China to agitate the Uighur Turks to this extent? This agitation causes terror and panic among people. Leave them alone, let them lead a normal life. Show Uighurs respect as much as you show respect to Americans and French.

1045

If America wants to do good, they should struggle against the PKK and encourage Turkey to struggle against the PKK. Saying, "You should stand against ISIS," and supporting the PKK is not acceptable.

1046

Jews regard Muslims as faithful people, as people of faith. They regard Muslims as the people of Noah and we would regard Muslims as faithful people so long as they accept the prophethood of the prophet Mohammad (saas). They are Muslims if they perform their prayers as depicted in the Torah, if they give alms as described in the Torah and if they accept the prophethood of our Prophet Mohammed (saas): Then everything is okay.

1047

People of faith are each other's guardians. They should protect us and we should protect them.

1048

There is no party to call the HDP. That is because the HDP has no foundation, no ideology. What is their ideology? It is not Marxism, not communism, not nationalism. They have only one ideology and that is fear: I mean they lay a foundation on fear. People go and vote for the HDP out of fear; that is the whole issue.

1049

Do you know what "freedom for Öcalan" means? It means "freedom to murder." It means "there is no punishment for being a murderer." It means "there is no punishment for martyring soldiers, for martyring police officers." It is an effort to legitimize the PKK.

1050

The AK Party should pay attention to the fact that our people are devoted to their spirituality. First of all, we do not want separation. Second of all, we want to get rid of the nuisance of the PKK.

1051

The language the PKK understands is humiliation. Their immorality should be emphasized and their foulness should be communicated to the world. This is a system that disrupts all the plans of the USA.

1052

The spirit of idolatry brings about cowardice. They fail to understand this. God says, "I will put fear in their hearts." And He really puts fear in their hearts, so they become fearful and cowardly.

1053

The Islamic world is groveling right now because of their superstitions; they are ruined because of that. Radicalism brings along timidity. When that is the case, the bravery and self-reliance of the companions is not formed.

1054

We should do as God says, what our Prophet (saas) says, what his companions say. Were there sects at the time of our Prophet (saas)? Were there sects such as Hanafis, Hanbali, Maliki, Shafi'i, Shi'ah and Wahhabism at the time of our Prophet (saas)? No, there weren't. In order to avoid the damnation of God, we need to return to the pure and real religion of God, to the Qur'an.

1055

It is important to preserve that immaculate personality of Anatolians: Writers, journalists should also express this fact. Furthermore if necessary, precautionary action should be taken by the government.

1056

Anatolian people are really immaculate, decent people. You should assume a respectful, polite attitude and pay tribute to their customs and traditions. Anatolian people have a trademark morality that should not be manipulated; that beautiful morality should be kept immaculate.

1057

The US, who keeps silent against the PKK, seems to act as a bully against ISIS. You should go deal with the PKK. After the PKK is dealt with, you can leave ISIS to us. ISIS would then withdraw; it wouldn't be a problem. ISIS is a structure that would listen to reason, but the PKK is not. ISIS can be persuaded with the Qur'an.

1058

While there is a flock of bandits that martyred our ten thousands of our soldiers and police officers, what business would we have with ISIS, which has not harmed Turkey at all? Even though they are mistaken, they are Muslims and they did no harm to us. But the PKK is a communist, Godless, Bookless, Stalinist terror organization that attacks Turkey's all spiritual values.

1059

The Antichrist has a characteristic and it makes people deny God. The name of the system that would annihilate the damage of the antichrist is the system of the Mahdi.

1060

While describing the antichrist, our Prophet (saas) said, "It will make the world deny God." Right now it has succeeded in doing that. Because of Darwinism, people are denying the Existence of God. That means the antichrist came. Then you should also see that the system of the Mahdi has assumed an attitude against it. If there is the antichrist, the Mahdi would not remain silent. He would crush it with knowledge and science.

1061

With Darwinism, a system that makes 99% of the world deny God has settled upon the world for the first time in the course of history. The name of this system is the system of the antichrist.

1062

Love is the most pleasurable feeling in the world. It is also the most pleasurable blessing of the Hereafter. It is the color, the light of life. People's souls freshen up with love. One would die, suffer scourges and be devastated without love. Life without love would be poisonous.

1063

A lack of love darkens people. A lack of love is really intense in evil women and evil men. Nothing other than hatred spills out of their mouths. That is why God makes their faces as dark as coal.

1064

Love is the greatest blessing in this world. God created this world for love. He created His servants for love. He created Heaven for love. Love is the sole goal. Love is also the reason for the smooth and beautiful appearance of people, of plants, of animals, of all creations, of the atoms.

1065

We would never accept Turkey being surrounded by the PKK. The roads, the connections, the veins of the PKK should be severed completely at least from three points. This is a necessity for the struggle against the PKK.

1066

We, as Turkey, would have nothing to do with ISIS. The PKK is the only target. Ataturk says that communism is the greatest enemy of the Turkish Nation and should be crushed wherever it is spotted. Of course that should be done with knowledge, laws and legal system.

1067

The Last Day and the end of the world would have come long ago, were it not for the appearance of Imam Mahdi. The Last Day is imminent; God makes it wait for the sake of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).

1068

An egotistical, selfish structure, a Darwinist/materialist structure has developed among the new generation. They are not at all concerned with the separation of Turkey. Measures should be taken against this. A course on National Values should be given top place in the curriculum. The importance of the unity and integrity of the Turkish Nation, the danger of the PKK, love for our army, the invalidity of Darwinism/materialism should all be taught in these courses.

1069

It is not acceptable to fire bullets at a Muslim. Those who attempt to do that are ignoble murderers and will be rewarded forever with Hell in response.

1070

Some imagine that Mahdi (pbuh) will live in palaces. The fact is that the Mahdi (pbuh) will be living in his house. That is also mentioned in the 4,000 -year -old Torah; the Torah states that "He will lead from his couch" for Moschiach Mahdi. The Mahdi will lead the world with his ideas, with his opinions and his love. All the leaders of the world will be influenced by him and will lead the world in line with him.

1071

We will have Turkey as the leader of the Islamic Union, as the leader of the Turkish-Islamic Union. We will create a union, not disintegration; a unification not a deterioration.

1072

The HDP is a virtual party. It is a virtual structure that came into existence with the votes taken from the masses intimidated in an environment of terror, by the violence of the PKK.

1073

We have not seen the Messenger of God (saas) but we love him more than our own lives. High quality love is important. Passion is important. For instance, you might see someone for ten minutes only but love him madly. You might see him for ten hours daily but live in distress and nothing else.

1074

What does Almighty God say to the Prophet Moses (pbuh)? God says, "We gave him tenderness and purity from Us." He doesn't say that he became loveable and tender on his own or that he made others love him on his own. God says that He made him loved, that it was Him Who gave him love.

1075

Independent love is not acceptable. She says "he doesn't love me enough." First of all, God is the One Who creates love. You are asking for the love of idolaters. You are asking for the love of idols. If you attempt to idolize a man, you would become an idolater anyway. God would plague you, you would feel distresses. God would take away the love from that person's heart. You would niether love, nor be loved. God would make you hollow inside. Love should be directly expected from God.

1076

The PKK should not act spoiled; microbes can procreate anywhere but once you pour a bottle of tincture of iodine on it, they would all be annihilated. The PKK rejoices thinking how they succeeded at spreading the infection, but let me say that all it takes a tincture of iodine. We will lay hold of all of them with laws and the legal system.

1077

It is a fact that the Jews are not that much liked both in Turkey and in the Middle East. That is a wrong attitude and it is against good conscience. Jews are from the line of the prophets; they are a devout community, faithful to the Prophet Moses (pbuh). Attempting to crush them, thinking that they are but few in number and easy to overpower, would bring about inauspiciousness. That would be a sin. That would be shameful. That would be lack of good conscience.

1078

God would bring about inauspiciousness upon those who attack the inoffensive ones among the people of Israel and that has been seen in the course of history as well. God would bring about auspiciousness and plenty upon those who protect inoffensive people; that has been seen in the course of history as well.

1079

Love is zesty; love is beautiful. A lack of good conscience, or persecution is very distressing; they are against the nature of humans. We are going experience the taste of that love, the beauty of that love. We will also teach people about that.

1080

Those who attempt to put the blood of Muslims on our soldiers' hands, those who attempt to make our soldiers get used to murders, get used to shedding Muslims' blood, would get their just desserts.

1081

In the Qur'an, God prohibited sorrow. A Muslim should put aside sorrow through faith. There is no good in sorrow; it merely harms people. Sorrow is a poison that wrecks life, it lays the grounds for illnesses. Joy, on the other hand, is nourishment for the body.

1082

It is a religious obligation to wipe unbelievers off the face of this world. But of course this is done with knowledge, with information, with love, with laws and the legal system. Weapons should be kept, not with the intention of using them, but as a deterrent force.

1083

ISIS is a scourge sent by God upon the PKK; He either sends hurricanes or earthquakes upon people or inflicts such people upon them.

1084

Troubles and afflictions only sharpen and strengthen people. This is the way God disciplines. Or else a great portion of people would remain heedless.

1085

Communism, Stalinism is a system of belief. It is a terrorist, blood-shedding, psychopathic, devilish religion. It is the religion of satan. Against the religion of satan, there is the religion of God and it is the True religion. We stand up for that True religion. The clique of God stands against the clique of satan and the clique of God would always crush them with knowledge, with laws and with the legal system.

1086

Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will come as the vizier of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), that is what our Prophet (saas) foretold. In order to honor the Mahdi, in order to emphasize his greatness, Almighty God sends Jesus Messiah as his vizier. The greatness of the Mahdi could be appreciated from that alone. He is the last guide. He is the greatest guide, the greatest Saint of all times. That is to say, imam Mahdi is superior to the Companions.

1087

One of the reasons behind the US and UK's drastic attitude against the ISIS is the global deep state. That is because looking into the perspective of history, the global deep state sees that such a group will appear and be successful. They are aware that struggling against it would be meaningless. They will do their task until the appearance of the Mahdi (pbuh). They cannot stop this from happening.

1088

Those shooting a Muslim are despicable. It is ignominy and immorality to kill Muslims. Those who put forward such a proposal are the most despicable, the most spineless and the most ignoble ones. That should be known.

1089

The US remained standing until now with their conservatism, with their piety. Once the US is stripped from their piety, it will be the end of the US. The US will be ruined.

1090

Those who contemplate killing Muslims, who prepare to do so, are despicable, immoral, treacherous and immoral. Killing Muslims will be rewarded with everlasting hell.

1091

The real issue is the PKK. They should never attempt to make us deal with ISIS. We will never accept the dishonor of firing a bullet against the ISIS. It is a dishonor, a perfidy, an ignominy to shoot at Muslims. And whoever attempts to give a fatwa to that end is the most despicable one.

1092

If the money spent on weapons is spent on those in need, there would be an inconceivable wealth in this world. There would be plentitude all over the world. They are spending money on weapons, on killing people. Weapons will be destroyed at the time of the Mahdi (pbuh). Money that used to be spent on weapons will be distributed to Muslims, and to wretched people and those who are in need.

1093

Not being strong enough to deal with the PKK yet saying, "I will play a hero fighting against ISIS," is unacceptable. If you are brave enough, you should go crush the PKK with laws and the legal system.

1094

The command of God is evident; I am saying this to the PKK as well, they will soon be defeated. Their lifespan of 40 years as the antichrist has come to an end. They will all be put in prisons; they should come to their senses.

1095

Kurdish people are noble and elevated people, they are decent, kind, radiant, religious, pure, immaculate, honest and brave. But the PKK are debased, treacherous and perfidious, they are a herd of murderers harboring all sorts of nastiness. I really am surprised to see those who do not know how to differentiate Kurdish people from the PKK. I mean, one needs to make that distinction.

1096

If our current government does not form a coalition with the MHP, they would pay for that historical mistake by being wiped off the political scene. That is why they should make a coalition with the MHP, a solid coalition.

1097

Justice is the first thing Mahdi (pbuh) will ensure. People will never be persecuted at his time.

1098

Their claims about Mahdi (pbuh) not being mentioned in the Qur'an are not true. Surat al-Kahf and Surah Yusuh entirely refer to the system of the Mahdi. The story of the Prophet Solomon (pbuh) refers to the system of the Mahdi. The 55th verse of Surat An-Nur refers to the global dominion and the system of the Mahdi.

1099

They say, "There are 600,000 hadiths." According to this statement, our Prophet (saas) should have said one hadith each hour starting from his birth. And these only cover the hadiths accepted, selected by Bukhari; and some say that Bukhari had chosen them among one million hadiths, others say he had chosen them among three million hadiths. Even if our Prophet (saas) had lived for a thousand years, he wouldn't have enough time to say all these hadiths. That means some of them are made-up, fake hadiths. Even a child would have understood this.

1100

This is a transient world. All those people that you admire die and go. All those buildings that you admire will fall into pieces and they are already falling down. You hold those clothes, those pieces of fabric, etc., in high esteem whereas you should be admiring God, admiring the Qur'an.

1101

PKK militants are reaping the harvest of their own actions. It is the PKK who taught violence and terror to the region for years, yet in the current situation, the PKK is the one being subjected to violence as well. Whereas they should have taken peace, brotherhood and love as their basis.

1102

There is a symbol of a "deadlock" in Freemasonry. That is a five-thousand year old symbol used to symbolize that the world will come to a deadlock and that Mahdi (pbuh) will be the one to solve that deadlock.

1103

It is religiously unlawful to factionalize. It is religiously unlawful to divide Muslims into factions. One should love each and every single one of them. You might vote for a party; that is something else, but God has prohibited us to be in factions. There is an explicit command to that extend. The verse directly mentions factionalizing. Of course we should support all Muslims.

1104

The Greater Middle East Initiative is a project sketched to destroy the system of the Mahdi. What does the system of the Mahdi demand? It demands the Islamic world to be in unity. What does the Greater Middle East initiative demand? It demands that Islamic world be torn to pieces. Ever since the beginning, their goal is to tear Turkey into pieces, tear Iraq and Syria into pieces.

1105

The AKP and the MHP should form the government and come to power. They should give the Ministry of Internal Affairs to the MHP and should make a brave young man the Minister of Internal Affairs. Then eradicate the PKK with the legal system. This is the most crucial point.

1106

It is better for us to come across fierce communists, anarchist-Stalinists or devout Jewish people with their kippahs and ringlets, with the Torah in their hands invoking the Name of God night and day, when we go to Israel? Of course it is better to see those who invoke God. That is a great blessing. And they are showing an immense loyalty towards the Prophet Moses (pbuh) for four thousand years.

1107

Some say, "What was there before God?" Since you are talking about what is before and what is after, it is apparent that you are bound to time. God is timeless. How can you ask what is before and what is after, when He is timeless. God is beyond time and space. When there is timelessness, you cannot ask what was before? God exists timelessly. We are created as beings bound to time.

1108

When one is drowned in feelings of superiority, God prevents him from drawing closer to religion and takes away his mind.

1109

Satan is a maniac that has reached the highest point of snobbery, apathy and romanticism. Such maniacs can also be observed among society.

1110

There is no reasonable aspect of the feeling of superiority. Humans are really wretched beings that are bound to sleep, having difficulty remaining afoot and die in a short while. It is a miracle that such a wretched being could have such an inconceivable feeling of superiority.

1111

Struggling against the PKK is an individual duty, a fardh al-'ayn for every Muslim. No one could say, "what's it to me?" God says that Muslims, when an oppressive wrong is inflicted on them, are not cowed but help and defend themselves. It is an individual duty on all Muslims to struggle against the PKK. Anything other than that would be religiously unlawful. If Muslims do not struggle against the PKK, they would be religiously unlawful. That is because the PKK is a movement of the antichrist attacking our Muslim Kurdish brothers.

1112

We want a free and liberal Turkey, we want a free Southeast Anatolia. We are going to perform our acts of worship as we like in the Southeast. We are going to invoke the name of God as we like. All the political parties will be able to carry out their activities as they like. Should the PKK attempt to interfere, we would clip their wings with laws and the legal system. They should know this.

1113

The accounts state that the lifespan of the antichrist is forty years. The PKK is also a movement of the antichrist and it has fulfilled its lifetime. God will make the Turkish army, the Turkish state, the Turkish people and the Turkish police instrumental in that. This scourge will be eradicated with laws and the legal system. The time has come. Putting a struggle against them is religiously lawful, it is in fact a religious obligation. Delaying it is religiously unlawful.

1114

The PKK should be eradicated with laws and the legal system. That is a religious obligation. It is clear and explicit with the verses of the Qur'an; unbelievers would never triumph. Truth always comes out victorious.

1115

Crying is the general characteristic of idolaters. They misrepresent themselves as crying, blubbering people as if they are sentimental, compassionate and easily flappable. And thus their paths are opened for them. Actually, one only cries out of fear of God, out of love for God; but these ones cry as a ploy, to put on a show with their idolater spirit.

1116

Idolaters sometimes present themselves as if they are about to do something good but they are treacherous. You should not believe the face an idolater displays. The good behavior he displays in front of you, or the speeches he gives and his words, are not valid. Their insidious and covert maniacal world is the truth. The Qur'an draws attention to this fact.

1117

God gives time to unbelievers and then knocks them down because they go astray. The lifespan of unbelief is about 40 years and the PKK is about to fulfill this 40 years.

1118

Muslims do not have the unity the PKK has among them. They do not even have one tenth of their solidarity. For instance, they live inside a cave on a three thousand meter high mountain. If you ask a Muslim to go live in a cave, very few Muslims would ever accept it. If you ask them to put their lives on the line, they would probably say ,"I have a family, I have my wife, I am supposed to advance in life, I will have my child married..." and would never put their lives on the line. But see that the PKK militants do put their lives on the line. That is why God gives them success, even if they are in disbelief, simply because they are determined.

1119

If one displays egocentricity, people become really vicious against him. That is why modesty is like an armor. Egocentricity on the other hand is a disease that increases aggression and attracts troubles.

1120

God is the One Who knows everything and He is the One Who establishes the commands. And God is Wise, there is wisdom in everything He does. Someone might say, "Something went terribly wrong." But that is not true, everything happens for a reason. Your mind might not conceive it yet and you might learn the wisdom behind it, either in this world or in the Hereafter, but there is certainly wisdom behind everything that happens.

1121

Why are stories in the Qur'an told? For everyone to take the moral of the story. They are not told simply as stories. They hold light to an event that will take place. In the stories of the Qur'an, the incidents that will take place in the future are told with symbols. For instance, Surah Yusuf is the explanation of the system of the Mahdi with symbols.

1122

The Prophet Solomon (pbuh) is the forefather of the Mahdi (pbuh). Hazrat Mahdi will be very much like the Prophet Solomon (pbuh). Mahdi (pbuh) will also love arts, beauty and glory a lot. He will adorn the world. Our Prophet (saas) says that he will prosper the whole world, for Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).

1123

One should focus on Heaven and grasp it well. One should strengthen his faith. A Muslim should have that knowledge fully settled in his mind. It should not remain as blurred information. A Muslim should know everything told about Heaven in the Qur'an, he should know all of the verses.

1124

Muslims always face beautiful things after their deaths. There would be no difficulties, no pain, no fear for them; they won't face such feelings in any stage. Everything goes smoothly for them. They will never face any kind of distress while their souls are taken, while they arise from death, while they enter Heaven.

1125

The Prophet Solomon (pbuh) is the sultan of arts and aesthetics. He is the one who taught arts and aesthetics to the world. Christianity learned the arts from him. They have learned how palaces should be adorned, how the masjids should be adorned, how the buildings should be adorned, all from him. The palaces in Europe, the palaces of the Ottomans have all been built by emulating the palace of the Prophet Solomon (pbuh). The Prophet Solomon is the father of all palaces, he is the father of arts, aesthetics and beauty.

1126

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

1127

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.

1128

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.

1129

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.

1130

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.

1131

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.

1132

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.

1133

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.

1134

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.

1135

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.

1136

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.

1137

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.

1138

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.

1139

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.

1140

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 .

1141

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.

1142

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.

1143

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.

1144

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

1145

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.

1146

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.

1147

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.

1148

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.

1149

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.

1150

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

1151

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.

1152

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.

1153

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.

1154
