Explanations of hadiths by Mr. Adnan Oktar 

"Dani related from Huzayfa. He said: "The Messenger of God (saas) commanded: There will be a war in Zevra. Huzayfa said; "O the Messenger of God what is Zevra?" He commanded, "Zevra is a city in the East in between rivers, a city in which the most vicious ones of my ummah reside. The cruel ones live there..." (Hadiths from the Classification of Jalaluddin As-Suyuti, The Portents of the Mahdi of the End Times, Al-Muttaqi, p.70) 

Now; when we say that there dark circles, mafia people in Istanbul, does that mean everyone who lives in Istanbul? No, it does not. Those vicious people have settled there, it means that they are concentrated there. The hadith states that these vicious people martyr Muslims between the rivers Euphrates and Tigris. It states that "they martyr Muslims" in that region. That means there are Muslims there. The hadith states that they make life difficult for Muslims. That means there are Muslims there as well. And this is what is happening right now. 

It has been related from Ibn Abbas; "In Zevra (between the rivers Euphrates and Tigris) a red wind will blow that would cause Muslims groan." A communist movement, a red wind. Notice that there is always a mention of this red wind in the End Times. The accounts state that "a red wind will blow," on Muslims between the Euphrates and Tigris rivers. Look; this is the communist PKK movement. “Later on they will go to the scholars to ask about this situation." So that means there are scholars in that region. There are meles (Kurdish mullahs) in that region. "When they go to them they will see that they have been turned into monkeys and pigs and that their faces and their eyes are darkened." That is because they would be dishonest, they would all side with them and now some mullahs are on the side of the PKK. They will become PKK militants. That is actually a miracle. I mean they will present themselves as if they are Muslims even though they would be Darwinist, materialist, atheists, communists. "They will see that their faces and eyes are darkened." That means they will see the darkness, the darkness of unbelief on their faces meaning they will have the appearance of people who persecute others and shed blood.

1,400 YEARS AGO OUR PROPHET (SAAS) FORETOLD THE APPEARANCE OF ISIS WITH BLACK BANNERS AS THE PORTENT OF THE APPEARANCE OF THE MAHDI (PBUH) 

“Naim bin Hamman related from Said Bin Museyyab and he said; “Our Prophet (saas) said, “Black banners of Ibn Abbas appear from the East.” That is to say, among the Arabs,  those with black banners appear. “After they proceed for a while, again this time a smaller group with black banners appears from the East.” Meaning the Middle East. “They will fight against a man from the descent of Abu Sufyan…” Who is Sufyan? Assad. Hafez Al-Assad. A man from the descent of him; this means the fight against Bashar Al-Assad.  See how clear it is, right? “They will eventually come under the obedience of Hazrat Mahdi.” At the end, they will abide by Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). Otherwise if that power were leaderless, that would devastate the world but because they will come under the obedience of Hazrat Mahdi (as), the problem would be settled.

First al-Qaida’s black flags appeared; the big black banners. Now, they are smaller, again from the East, “...this time small black banners appear and fighting against someone from the descent of Sufyan.” Right now this is already happening, “They will eventually come under the obedience of Hazrat Mahdi.”

I’ve always said that everything is related with the system of the Mahdi and they have feigned ignorance about it.

Our Prophet (saas) said, “Await for the reappearance of the awaited one on three occasions.”  They asked the Messenger of God (saas); “What are those three occasions O the Messenger of God?” Our Prophet (saas) replied, “Syrians fight among themselves…” Many groups in Syria can’t get along, so they fight. “…and then black flags arrive and when there is terror and fear in the month of Ramadan.” How many days are left to the month of Ramadan now? Are these all true? They are all true. He is the Loyal Informant. Our Prophet (saas) says that there will be an incident in the month of Ramadan as well. We will see about this.

Mr. ADNAN OKTAR’S EXPLANATIONS REGARDING THE LOWER SELF

Surat Al-Maidah; Verse 80

You see many of them taking those who are unbelievers as their friends. What their lower selves have advanced for them is evil indeed, bringing Allah´s anger down upon them. They will suffer punishment timelessly, for ever.

“You see many of them taking those who are unbelievers as their friends.” That means those who are deniers. “What their lower selves have advanced for them is evil indeed.” What is it that advances for them? Their lower selves. People generally do not attach necessary importance to the concept of the lower self. Actually it is a special force embedded in humans, it is a negative power; may God forbid, it might drive one crazy and might even  make one  commit murder, it might make one commit suicide.  All these troubles happen under the influence of the lower self. People imagine that nothing would  happen if they are guided by their lower selves but actually lots of things happen. It might take one over  and drag them into troubles; the lower self suffocates one.  

Surah Yusuf; Verse 53

I do not say my self was free from blame. The self indeed commands to evil acts — except for those my Lord has mercy on. My Lord, He is Forgiving, Merciful.´

I do not say myself was free from blame.” It is not possible to carry out positive studies with one’s lower self. Lower selves cannot be exonerated. “I do not say my self was free from blame.” It is a force that is active in a person’s soul  constantly commanding  evil.

Surat Ash-Shams; Verse 7

“… and the self and what proportioned it”

“… and the self” God creates the self “… and what proportioned it.” 

God is the One Who proportions the self. And now Almighty God explains that proportioning: 

Surat Ash-Shams; Verse 8 

... and inspired it with depravity or piety (taqwa)”

Look, first God gives aggressive, abnormal wrong feelings to the lower self,  but He also shows the ways to be protected against those with the verses of the Qur’an; the whole system of trial is founded upon that anyways. People need to  recognize this highly dangerous threat of the lower self and be alert and be careful against it. We are to look for the acts that please God the most.  

Surat An-Nisa; Verse 128 

But people are prone to selfish greed. If you do good and have fear of God, God is aware of what you do.

But people are prone to selfish greed.” God says, “I have created that specifically.” It is prone to selfish greed. The lower self, jealousy and selfishness make one’s body do abnormal acts eventually. People assume that nothing bad will happen if one follows his lower self; actually lots of things happen. It would ruin a man. The lower self is the propelling force in those who commit suicide. It drives them mad and drags them into committing suicide. They also commit murders because they abide by their lower selves.   

Surat Al-Mu’minun; Verse 106  

They will say, ´Our Lord, our miserable destiny overpowered us. We were misguided people.

Look, the lower self draws one into misery. The lower self draws one into pessimism, into misery, into seeing all people as bad and seeing one’s self as bad. Eventually they end up committing suicide. It draws one into a lack of love and mercy. A faithful person resists these with the knowledge God gives him. That is because God reveals this in him constantly. God reveals the right choice. God says, “I created the lowerself and proportioned it. I created it with the power of knowing what is right and what is wrong. And you are to abide by the truth, by your conscious.” God says, “Abide by the Qur’an with sincerity.” 

Surat Al-Qıyamah, Verses 14-15 

In fact, man will be clear proof against himself in spite of any excuses he might offer.

Excuses are put forth by the second negative portion of the lower self. Generally people believe in these excuses. They even commit murders and then say, “I don’t regret what I did”. The negative portion of the lower self gives that information to him and he would never even be aware of such a power embedded inside him. He imagines that it is him who does those things. Actually if he could get  control of his lower self, he could live like a king and be really comfortable. 

Surat Al-Baqarah; Verse 109

Many of the People of the Book would love it if they could make you revert to  disbelief after you have become Muslim, showing their innate envy now that the truth is clear to them. 

One looks and sees that Islam is more perfect than Christianity. Heaven, hell everything is perfect. Religious services are perfect, the attitude adopted about explanations of God is perfect. They find that difficult to accept and they eventually start to work to make Muslims abandon Islam. Why? Because of their innate envy. One might be a Jew and yet looks and sees that Islam is perfect and find all sorts of perfection that he fails to see in the Torah. There is perfection in the language. It doesn’t create any kind of distress in their hearts. Everything is perfect, everything is right. They find it hard to accept. Of course, the Qur’an doesn’t say this for all of them; only some Cristians and some Jews are being referred to here. They do this with the innate envy and jealousy they have. 

Surah Al-Qiyamah; Verse 14

In fact, man will be clear proof against himself

They have information against their lowerself. God says,” They know what to do against that.”

Surat An-Nisa; Verse 63

God knows what is in such people´s hearts so turn away from them and warn them and speak to them with words that take effect.

... speak to them with words that take effect.” The lower self is not instantly convinced. That is why they should be spoken to in a clear and effective manner. They should be given information based on the Qur’an, in a sincere and easily perceived manner. They do not realize the hostile force inside them. Actually the lower self is equipped with all sorts of negative information. They go by it because they don’t know any better. This is what lies in the root of all ignominies. 

Surat Al-Mudathir; Verse 38

Every self is held in pledge against what it earne

The lower self is given to every self to be held in pledge temporarily.  

Surat Al-Isra; Verse 14

'Read your Book! Today your own self is reckoner enough against you!'

That is because the lower self is given two types of  information; both positive and negative information is provided. This positive information takes action in the Hereafter. “I have told you the right action, I have explained it to you,” one is told. They are being reminded of that in that day. One is told, “You were given the right information but you did not abide by it. You followed the wrong information even though you were well aware that it was wrong.”

Surah Al-Imran; Verse 30 

On the Day that each self finds the good it did, and the evil it did, present there in front of it, it will wish there were an age between it and then.”

They find the good they did but when they see the things they did in abiding by the negative portions of the lower self, they want to keep clear of that, they do not want to see those acts but they want to see the good they did. Actually they could have avoided all those evils if they had wanted to.

Explanations of various verses from Surat al-Hijr by Mr. Adnan Oktar  

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 56  

He said, ´Who despairs of the mercy of his Lord except for misguided people?´

The Prophet says, “Who despairs of the mercy of his Lord except for misguided people?” We see this in many people; they despair of the mercy of their Lord. Actually God says that it is misguidance. God has power over all things. Everything happens as preordained in destiny. 

 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verses 57-58-59-60

He added, ´What is your business, messengers?´ They said, ´We have been sent to a people who are evildoers —with the exception of the family of Lot, all of whom We will save, except for his wife. We have decreed her to be one of those who stay behind.´

Even though he is a Prophet, he doesn’t know that his wife is a hypocrite. 

 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verses 61-62 

When the Messengers came to the family of Lut, he said, ´You are people we do not know.´ 

So he says, “I do not know you”

 

Surat Al- Hijr; Verses 63-68 

They said, ´We have come to you with what they had doubts about. We have brought you the truth and we are certainly truthful men. Travel with your family in the dead of night, following behind with them in front of you. None of you must look back. Go where you are ordered to.´ We revealed to him the command We had decreed: that on the following morning the last remnant of those people would be cut off. The people of the city came, exulting at the news. He said, ´These are my guests so do not put me to shame. 

Sexually deviant people pound at the Prophet Lot’s door. They have an immoral point of view towards the angels. In that era, women have been masculinized and men have been feminized. Women had a ragged, repulsive, masculinized appearance just like what the radicals are trying to turn them into right about now and that is why men became feminized. 

 

Surat Al- Hijr; Verses 69-70

Have awe of Allah and do not dishonor me.´ They said, ´Did we not forbid you to play host to anyone at all?´ 

That means they always say that to the preachers; “What’s that to you? You have no business with that! Let whoever it is explain whatever is needed to be explain!” That is something Muslims are frequently told. 

 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 71

He said, ´Here are my daughters if you are determined to do something.´

 “Have legitimate relations with them, but do not engage in sexual perversion,” he says. 

 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 72 

By your life! They were wandering blindly in their drunkenness!

That means they are blind in the drunkenness of bigotry; they fail to see the Truth and they have a foolish spirit,  a rampant and aggressive spirit. 

 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verses 73-74 

So the Great Blast seized hold of them at the break of day. We turned the place completely upside down and rained down on them stones of hard-baked clay. 

That means their houses crashed down upon them.  God mentions “stones of hard-baked clay” because the houses at that time were brick houses; so those brick houses crashed down upon them. 

 

Surat Al- Hijr; Verses 75-76

There are certainly Signs in that for the discerning. They were beside a road which still exists.

As an example …

 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 77

There is certainly a Sign in that for Muslims.

But that is for those who have faith.

 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verses 78-79

The people of the Thicket were also wrongdoers. We took revenge on them as well. They are both beside a well-beaten track. 

So Almighty God says, “The wreckage of their destruction is there, go and see them yourselves.” 

 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verses 81-94 

We brought them Our Signs but they turned away from them. They carved out houses from the mountains, feeling safe, but the Great Blast seized hold of them in the morning, so all that they earned was of no use to them. We did not create the heavens and earth and everything between them, except with truth. The Hour is certainly coming, so turn away graciously. Your Lord, He is the Creator, the All-Knowing. We have given you the Seven Often repeated and the Magnificent Qur´an. Do not direct your eyes longingly to what We have given certain of them to enjoy. Do not feel sad concerning them. And take Muslims under your wing. Say: ´I am indeed a clear warner.´ Just as We sent down punishment on the dissectors, those who divide the Qur´an into little pieces. By your Lord, We will question them all, every one of them, about what they did! Proclaim what you have been ordered to and turn away from the idolaters.

“We brought them Our Signs but they turned away from them.” They did not listen to the Qur’an. “They carved houses from the mountain, feeling safe but the Great Blast seized hold of them in the morning so all that they earned was of no use to them.  We did not create the heavens and earth and everything between them, except with truth.” That means everything; for instance televisions, glass, rosaries, mirrors, whatever one might think of;  shoes, everything, all of them are created with a goal. “The Hour is certainly coming…” The time for the Last Day is coming “… so turn away graciously.” Meaning preach religion with fair admonition, have a reasonable way of explaining things and refrain from destructive manners. “Your Lord, He is the Creator, the All-Knowing.” Almighty God says “I am the One creating everything”  “We have given you the Seven Often repeated and the Magnificent Qur´an.” This is the 87th verse and the number “7” is mentioned. “Say: ´I am indeed a clear warner’.”  So he is simply a warner. “Just as We sent down punishment on the dissectors…” Muslims are all divided. For instance they are now trying to divide Turkey, they are trying to divide Islam; they attempt to divide them into denominations, into groups. “… those who divide the Qur´an into little pieces.”  They say that a part of the Qur’an has been taken out and  that part is deemed null. And some of them claim that hadiths are the additions to the Qur’an. They claim that there are added verses to the Qur’an that we are unaware of.  They claim that there are verses except for those in the Qur’an. That is how the radicals have formed a religion right now. “By your Lord, We will question them all, every one of them, about what they did!” says God. “Proclaim what you have been ordered to and turn away from the idolaters.” Who are those idolaters? That radical lot. “They might snipe at you, they can make sharp remarks, they can talk nonsense from the internet, from here or there but you should not be affected by them,” says Almighty God.

Explanations of various verses from Surat Al-Hijr by Mr. Adnan Oktar  

Surat Al- Hijr; Verse 26   

We created mankind out of dried clay formed from fetid black mud.

What kind of mud is this? It is a mud used in ceramics; mud used in the production of porcelain. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 27

We created the jinn before out of the fire of a searing wind.

So that is something like electricity. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 28

When your Lord said to the angels, ´I am creating a human being out of dried clay formed from fetid black mud

Look, “… dried clay formed from fetid black mud…” so God says, “I will create a human being out of porcelain.”

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 29 

“When I have formed him and breathed My Soul into him, fall down in prostration in front of him!´”

Almighty God makes a perfect statue of a human being out of porcelain. When that porcelain is given life, that porcelain statue starts walking all of a sudden; that is how humans are created. God formed that statue looking just like a human. When God breathed His Soul into him, he starts walking, saying “Bismillah”. That is the creation, that is how it happened. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 30-31 

Then the angels prostrated all together, every one of them except Iblis. He disdained to be one of the prostrators.

Because of egocentricity and arrogance. Among people there are also some who refuse to believe in the Existence of God, in the beauty of His existence, in the Wisdoms of God and His Artistry. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 32

He said, ´Iblis, what is it that prevents you being among the prostrators?´

So God says, “Why do you not prostrate with them?” 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 33

He said, ´I will not prostrate to a human being whom You have created out of dried clay formed from fetid black mud.´

That offends the satan, he acts arrogantly. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 34 

He said, ´Get out from here, you are accursed

“A'uzu billahi minash shaitaanir rajeem”: We seek refuge in God from the satan.

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 35-36

The curse will be on you till the Day of Reckoning.´He said, ´My Lord, grant me a reprieve until the Day they are raised again.´ 

So the life it is given is long; for instance, if the life span of the universe is 100,000 years, if the life span of humanity is 200,000 years, it is given 200,000 years of life. But when satan is asked; “How long have you lived?” he will say, ”I lived for a day or for a part of a  day.” So 200,000 years feels like that for him. And that is why it says this; that is how it feels like. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 37-38-39

He said, ´You are among the reprieved until the Day whose time is known.´ He said, ´My Lord, because You misled me, I will make things on the earth seem good to them and I will mislead them all, every one of them, 

He said; “My Lord, because You misled me,   I will make things – rebellion against You and worldly ambitions- Darwinism and materialism – seem good to them.” So he says, “I will make them seem good, so they would appear to be good.” “… and I will mislead them all, every one of them.”

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 40 

“except Your servants among them who are sincere.´”

So the satan says that he cannot mislead sincere servants of God. Satan says, “I will mislead every insincere servant of Yours.”

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 41

He said, ´This is a Straight Path to Me.

God says, “That is right. You are now telling the truth.”

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 42

You have no authority over any of My slaves except for the misled who follow you.´ 

For instance, see that they are now trying to instill doubts and fear in Muslims by saying, “The PKK is inconvincible,” this and that. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 43-44

Hell is the promised meeting-place for all of them. It has seven gates and each gate has its allotted share.

It has seven Gates; those might be magnetic doors, doors maybe people cannot differentiate or it might be an iron door that can easily be seen. We do not know the characteristic of that door.  That is a door people will pass by in masses. But hell is forbidden for Muslims and Heaven is forbidden for unbelievers. When unbelievers come to the door of Heaven, they cannot pass by, the door of the Heaven would push them out. And the doors of the hell would push Muslims out, Muslims cannot enter hell. “… and each gate has its allotted share.” So God says that the door for each group to pass by has been determined.

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 45

Those who have piety will be amid Gardens and Springs: 

Those who have piety, those sincere servants will be amid Gardens and Springs. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 46-47

´Enter them in peace, in complete security!´ We will strip away any rancor in their hearts — brothers, resting on couches face-to-face. 

“… We will strip away any rancor in their hearts…” Muslims do not have any rage or anger against one another. “-...brothers, resting on couches face to face.” They are sitting face to face on couches. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 48

They will not be affected by any tiredness there and they will never be made to leave. 

“They will not be affected by any tiredness there.” In this world when night falls we feel sleepy but that would not be the case in Heaven. “They will not be affected by any tiredness there,” says God and “… they will never be made to leave.” For how long? For all eternity. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 49

Tell My servants that I am the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful, 

So God says; “Even if you commit a sin, even if you make a mistake, I will forgive you, I will protect you.”

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 51

And tell them about the guests of Abraham. 

You know that the Prophet Abraham (pbuh) was very hospitable. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse  52

When they came in to him, they said, ´Peace!´ He said, ´Truly we are afraid of you.´ 

When his guests came they said “Peace” to him and the Prophet Abraham (pbuh) said, “Truly we are afraid of you.” Why is he afraid? He is not afraid of them when they first came. They tell him that they’ve come there from very far away. For instance, they are coming there from hundreds of kilometers away but the clothes they have on are all clean and shiny, their skin is very well groomed and it is all very clean. There is no dust, no soil, no dirt. “Come in,” he says, “have a meal.” He brings in a roasted calf without delay.  And they say, “No, we won’t eat.” He asks, “Why?” And they respond, “We do not eat, that is why.” And then the verse states that the Prophet Abraham (pbuh) was afraid. That is because he understands that he came across an extraordinary being. Later on they say, “We came to take revenge. We came here to take revenge from that perverted nation.” There were people who engaged in perverted relations back at that time as well. And the angels say, “We came to raze them to the ground. You should leave this place, you and your wife.”

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 72

By your life! They were wandering blindly in their drunkenness! 

“By your life!” God takes an oath to the life of the Prophet (saas). “They were wandering blindly in their drunkenness!” God says that they are fool, stupid, mindless, thickheaded and bigoted. God says that “They were wandering blindly in their drunkenness!” They are blind, they fail to see the truth. They were addle-brained. They were inciting depravity with their mindless, foolish character, says God. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 73

So the Great Blast seized hold of them at the break of day. 

The break of day refers to the system of the Mahdi. God says, “So the Great Blast seized hold of them.” That scourge seized hold of them. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 74-75

We turned the place completely upside down and rained down on them stones of hard-baked clay. There are certainly Signs in that for the discerning. 

“There are certainly Signs in that for the discerning.” God says that there are Signs in that for those who have a good head on their shoulders. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 76

They were beside a road which still exists.

They are still there as a warning. 

Surat Al-Hijr; Verse 87 

We have given you the Seven Often repeated and the Magnificent Qur´an.

Almighty God really conceals a secret in sevens.  For instance, look, there had been a drought in 2007. There had been another drought in 2014. No rain fell. For instance, in Hijri 1400 Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) appears. When we go back in time with multiples of 7, we find the foundation date of the Ottomans; when we go back a little more in time with multiples of 7, we go to the time of Oğuzhan. We reach the dates that Turks have founded states. We come across the multiples of 7 throughout history. 7’s will be very important in the system of the Mahdi; the figure 9 as well. Our Prophet (saas) informs us about this in his hadiths. When Hazrat Ali (ra) is asked about the Mahdi (pbuh),  he makes the sign of the figure 9 with his hand. 7's and 9’s are important.

Explanations of various verses from Surah Yusuf by Mr. Adnan Oktar

Surah Yusuf,  Verse: 23

The woman, whose house it was, solicited him. She barred the doors and said, ´Come over here!´ He said, ´God is my refuge! He is my Lord and has been good to me with where I live. Those who do wrong will surely not succeed.

The woman whose house he resided in solicited the Prophet Joseph and barred the doors. Look, the doors to the living room are not just one, but there are several rooms; that is such a big and splendid house. They are living alone with the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) in that house. Actually the bigots would have freaked out in the sight of that. That woman wanders around in revealing, low neck clothes around the Prophet Joseph(pbuh). 

“… and said; “Come over here!” He (Joseph) said; “God is my refuge!” Look, he doesn’t give in to solicitation or else he looks at that woman and sees her beauty and appreciates it as well. He likes her, the Qur’an tells us that he likes her. Actually he desires her but he doesn’t approach her. “He (Joseph) said ;”God is my refuge! He is my Lord and has been good to me with where I live. Those who do wrong will surely not succeed.” Those who engage in debauchery, commit adultery, those who sin would not succeed. 

Surah Yusuf, Verse: 24

She wanted him and he would have wanted her, had he not seen the Clear Proof of his Lord. That happened so We might avert from him all evil and lust. He was indeed one of Our sincere worshippers.

“She wanted him and he would have wanted her, had he not seen the Clear Proof of his Lord.” He wants her but doesn’t sleep with her. “That happened so We might avert from him all evil and lust.” Look, God doesn’t want adultery. Not one’s looking at the other gender, not one’s liking the other, but He doesn’t want adultery. What is adultery? It is sexual relations that would disrupt the generations to come. that is a beauty when done with the lawful one; God doesn’t want the other because it is unlawful. “He was indeed one of Our sincere worshippers.” What is his characteristic? His sincerity. Look, God mentions only one characteristic here and He says; “He was indeed one of Our sincere worshippers.” God doesn’t tell us that he was performing his prayers, that he was giving his alms, that he went for Hajj. God only mentions his being a sincere worshipper. What is the main characteristic of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh)? His sincerity. God doesn’t tell us about the bed that he lay in, about how he didn’t eat much, about how he cried and how he refrained from the material aspects of this world. God only mentions his sincerity. This also is Hazrat Mahdi’s (pbuh) main characteristic, insha’Allah. 

Surah Yusuf, Verse: 25

They raced to the door. She tore his shirt at the back. They met her husband by the door. She said, ´How should a man whose intention was to harm your family be punished for what he did except with prison or painful punishment?´

“They raced to the door.” My dear one, the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) is such a nice person. “She tore his shirt at the back.” When she pulls his shirt to stop him, his shirt is torn. But we understand that the shirt he has on is not a shirt that is tight on his back; because she can hold on to it, that means it is a loose and comfortable shirt. “They met her husband by the door.” God does that specifically; God is the One Who tears his shirt, God is the One Who makes them meet her husband. Normally they might not have met him there. “She said; “How should a man whose intention was to harm your family be punished for what he did except for prison or painful punishment.” So she wants him to be beaten. “…prison or painful punishment.”

Surah Yusuf, Verses 26-27-28

He said, ´It was she who tried to seduce me.´ A witness from her people then declared, ´If his shirt is torn in front, she speaks the truth and he has clearly told a shameless lie. If his shirt is torn at the back, then she has lied and he has clearly told the simple truth.´  He saw the shirt torn at the back and said, ´The source of this is women´s deviousness. Without a doubt your guile is very great.

When her husband saw that the shirt was torn at the back, he said, “The source of this is women’s deviousness. Without a doubt your guile is very great.” So some women are really very devious, very dangerous; they lay very elaborate tricks. The Qur’an drew attention to this. But of course if her husband was not given such a suggestion, he wouldn’t have gained such a point of view. We can see how open people are to suggestions. For instance, the man might have seen that the shirt was torn at his back but wouldn’t even be bothered about that; he might fail to make sense of it or see that it is evidence.  For instance, it wouldn’t be that effective if the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) said the same but when someone else says this, it would be very effective because he would regard that person as impartial. Since the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) might be considered as a part of that act, his own statements wouldn’t be that much  effective. For instance, in the courts, you know that the accounts of impartial witnesses would be taken as greater testimony rather than the statement of the people directly involved.  That is why the statement of that witness did have a stronger impact on the husband; psychologically the human soul has a greater tendency to that. But we also see that this person has a good conscience. He could have still ruled against the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) if he wished so. 

Surah Yusuf, Verse 29

“Joseph, ignore all this, and you, my wife, should ask forgiveness for your evil act. There is no doubt that you are in the wrong.” 

“Joseph, ignore all this…” Look, this is his reaction; “…ignore all this…” Do not talk to her, do not be bothered by her, do not have any connections with her. “… and you, my wife, should ask forgiveness for your evil act.” Look, this shows that person is very devout and very rational as he approaches  things very reasonably and conscientiously. He doesn’t do anything wild. For instance, he doesn’t go and beat or kill the woman. We can see the nice result of the devoutness of that person.  Look at what he says; “Joseph, ignore all this…” He tells him not to see her. “…and you my wife should ask for forgiveness for your evil act. There is no doubt that you are in the wrong.” So he tells his wife that she sinned and that she has to repent. He tells her that she is in the wrong towards God and that she should repent for that.  He tells her that he is not the one to punish her, but God is;  but he also doesn’t want her to be punished for what she did. Look, he doesn’t want her to be burnt in the Hereafter. He wants her salvation in the Hereafter as well and approaches her with compassion. “Repent and be saved,” he says. 

 

New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (12 April 2014)

 

Almighty God gives us some details about the Hereafter but He prepared the Hereafter in a way that would be a complete surprise for Muslims.  

God says, “Every self will come together with a driver and a witness.” [Surah Qaf; 21]   Clearly there is a vehicle; it might be a small vehicle or a big beautiful vehicle and there are hosts on both sides of Muslims and there is a light for them both in front of them and beside them. God knows the truth this is a kind of vehicle; that is because God mentions a vehicle that operates on its own in the Qur’an. There is a vehicle that goes on its own, there are hosts inside that vehicle and there are headlights that enlightens the darkness and it moves forward. God says that they will come with those vehicles. Muslims definitely go to Heaven if they find themselves in such a condition. In the Qur’an, God says that they strongly hope for the Heaven. We might come across vehicles similar to those we have in this world or more advanced ones. We might find ultra-modern cities there; that is because God shows that to us, God shows them fruits and they say, “We’ve seen similar ones before.” That is the same with the houses of Heaven; we would say that we’ve seen similar ones before but the quality will be incomparable. There is an amazing trial going on in this world.

Explanations of verses from Surah Al-Imran by Mr. Adnan Oktar  

Surah Al-Imran; Verses 40-41

He said, ´My Lord, how can I possibly have a son when I have reached old age and my wife is barren?´ He said, ´It will be so. God does whatever He wills.´ He said, ´My Lord, appoint a Sign for me.´ He said, ´Your Sign is that you will not speak to people for three days, except by gesture. Remember your Lord much and glorify Him in the evening and after dawn.´

He (Zachariah) said : “My Lord, appoint a Sign for me.”  “A Sign” for what? “ He said; “My Lord, how can I possibly have a son when I have reached old age and my wife is barren?” He said; “It will be so. God does whatever He wills.” But look at what he says; “My Lord appoint a Sign for me.” That means Muslims should adopt waiting for a Sign as an Islamic attitude. For instance while thinking; “Should I go on such a trip?” “Should I do this?” “Should I do that?” he should consider “if these are compliant with the Qur’an.” Meaning he should consider if these acts are compliant with Islam, with the approval of God. But while doing so he will expect to see a Sign from God.  He said; “Your Sign is that you will not speak to people for three days, except by gesture. Remember your Lord much and glorify Him in the evening and after dawn.” So that means sometimes people should stop speaking. I mean sometimes simply by talking, people can get themselves in trouble. But God says; “Remember your Lord much and glorify Him.”

 

New Explanations by Mr. Adnan Oktar (29 March 2014)

 

Explanations of various verses from Surah Yunus and Surat An-Nisa by Mr. Adnan Oktar

Surah Yunus; Verse 82

God confirms the Truth by His words, even though the evildoers hate it.

“… even though the evildoers hate it.” Look, the man has committed a crime and is a sinner but he doesn’t want it. What does he not want? He doesn’t want the Truth. “God confirms the Truth by His words…” So He will make Islam prevail in the world, He will make Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) appear and the Prophet Jesus Messiah descend.  “God confirms the Truth by His words, even though the evildoers hate it.” God confirms all that He deems right and beautiful by His words. God confirms the Truth by His words right now and this is happening, even though the evildoers hate it. 

Surah Yunus; Verse 83

No one had faith in Moses except for a few of his people out of fear that Pharaoh, and the elders, would persecute them. Pharaoh was high and mighty in the land. He was one of the profligate. 

No one had faith in Moses except for a few of his people out of fear that Pharaoh and the elders would persecute them.” No one had faith because of the rampant persecution of the state of those times.  Only a few young people believed in him.  That is because “Pharaoh was high and mighty in the land.”  He was an egocentric tyrant and “He was one of the profligate.” One needs to take refuge in God from being one of the profligate; one needs to take refuge in God from being high and mighty.  Once a person acts high and mighty and becomes one of the profligate, God would destroy him. We should not forget about that. Look, there are a handful of young people.  People feel afraid, in a state of panic against the rampant system of the Pharaoh.  But a handful of young people do not feel afraid,        Masha’Allah. 

Surah Yunus; Verse 84 

Moses said; “My people! If you have faith in God, then put your trust in Him, if you are Muslims.”

Moses says, “My people! If you are Muslims…”  See that there were Muslims in all times. People say those people were Jews, etc. Actually the name of those people who followed Moses was also “Muslim”. Jewish people were Muslims at that time as well. They are Jewish Muslims. “La Ilaha Illa Allah, Moses Rasulullah.” That was the confession of faith at those times. Later on people said “La Ilaha Illa Allah, Jesus Resulullah.” And now we say “La Ilaha Illa Allah, Mohammed Rasulullah.” All of them are true. “… then put your trust in Him.” Putting trust in God is the greatest luxury in this world. The man says, “I want to live a luxurious life in glory, I want to be rich.” Well my brother, you cannot find comfort in that, you cannot be happy, you would grovel in that huge palace. May God forbid, the man then hangs himself on a chandelier in that palace and commits suicide, may God forbid. Once you put your trust in God all sufferings would be lifted. God created that as a blessing. People say; “God asks us to put our trust in Him, God asks us this and that…” God wants all that for your happiness. You feel happy when you perform your prayers, you feel happy when you perform your ablution, you feel happy when you put your trust in God, you feel happy when you mention the Name of God, when you read the Qur’an. Your mind opens up; that is because you are a weak being. God created you in a way that you need this. If you do not live by those beauties you would feel suffocated. These are blessings that prevent you to feel suffocated in the water; those are life-saving blessings. All the commands in the Qur’an are life-savers or else people would be suffocated; life would suffocate them, people are already living in that water. People survive without being suffocated in that because of those beauties. Without them, people would be suffocated. Without those blessings people would die. They would sink in that water. Humanity is in a state like that of the people of the Prophet Noah. 

Surah Yunus, Verse 85

They said, “We have put our trust in God. Our Lord, Do not make us a target for this wrongdoing people…” 

So Muslims say, “Do not test us with those persecutors.” If God wishes so, He can test us with them but Muslims say, “Our Lord ,do not test us like that “

Surah Yunus, Verse 86  

"… and rescue us, by Your mercy, from this unbelieving people!”  

The abjad calculation of that verse is 2018. That means Muslims will, insha’Allah, be saved from this pain, from this suffering by 2018 [or thereabouts].Without the doubles the calculation is 2018, with the doubles it is 2021, those are all very important dates. The Qur’an gave very clear dates, insha’Allah, God gave such beautiful signs, masha’Allah. 

Surah Yunus, Verse 87  

We revealed to Moses and his brother: ´Settle your people in houses in Egypt and make your houses places of worship and establish salat (prayers) and give good news to the Muslims.´ 

We revealed to Moses and his brother; “Settle your people in houses…” So what should Muslims do? They should have houses to preach religion and make their homes places of worship and establish prayers. Make them places of light in which people worship God and perform prayers.  “… and establish salat (prayers) and give good news to the Muslims.”  Establishing salat means performing prayers as is due, meaning performing prayers in sincerity. Actually salat (prayers) is a very easy religious observation; some radicals make up so many details saying “You should keep your finger like this, your leg like that,” that people say, “Let me not perform prayers then!” They invent hundreds of details. They need to perform their ablutions but those radicals create books of 370 pages and  because people cannot straighten up that information in those 370 pages, they give up performing their prayers. That is a devilish trick, a trick of the satan when actually religion is as easy as it actually is. Almighty God says; “He has selected you and not placed any constraint upon you in the religion -the religion of your forefather Abraham.” He says; “God desires ease for you; He does not desire difficulty for you.”  How could it be easy if you make up details filling books of 370 pages? One might assume that they do all this because of their piety but they have invented details and get suffocated in those details. Being sucked into details is a dissension, a disaster defined in the Qur’an. 

Surah Yunus, Verse 88 

Moses said, ´Our Lord, You have given Pharaoh and his ruling circle finery and wealth in the life of this world, Our Lord, so that they may be misguided from Your Way. Our Lord, obliterate their wealth and harden their hearts so that they do not have faith until they see the painful punishment.´

Moses said; “Our Lord, You have given Pharaoh and his ruling circle finery and wealth in the life of this world…”  That means Moses says, “You have given wealth and means to the system of the dajjal (antichrist)  “ Our Lord, so that they may be misguided from Your Way. Our Lord, obliterate their wealth…” Look how furious he gets.. “… and harden their hearts…” Those are two important points. He asks Almighty God to obliterate their wealth and to harden their hearts, to cover their minds over so that they would lose their wisdom. “…so that they do not have faith until they see the painful punishment.”  They come to believe eventually, but their tests would be finalized when they finally do so. That is why  religious services should not be presented as if they are difficult and thus give way to the satan. Millions of people distance themselves from religion because ablution and salat are presented as if they are difficult; they have made millions of people abandon religion in this way and they have ruined them all.

Surat An-Nisa; Verse 4  

Give women their dowry as an outright gift. But if they are happy to give you some of it, make use of it with pleasure and goodwill.

For instance see that God says; “Give women their dowry as an outright gift.” Meaning give them lovingly with joy; one gives his spouse money, buys her a house making her happy and pleasing her and distribute what you have.  “But if they are happy to give you some of it, make use of it with pleasure and goodwill.” God says use it with contentment. Almighty God wants a mutual generosity, a mutual spirit of bravery, a mutual beauty. So one distributes all he has to those who are in need, to the children: Almighty God tells people to help one another. That is because God is the one who gives those possessions. If people try and keep it all for themselves, the body would be gangrenous, the whole structure becomes gangrenous. Social structure, life becomes gangrenous, an economic crisis starts and people thus fall into suffering. 

Surat An-Nisa, Verse 8

If other relatives or orphans or poor people attend the sharing-out, provide for them out of it and speak to them correctly and courteously 

If other relatives or orphans or poor people attend the sharing-out, provide for them out of it…” says God. “.. and speak to them correctly and courteously.” To whom? To orphans and poor people. For instance there are some incredibly wealthy people and they have heirs; they all take their shares down to the last penny. See what Almighty God says: “If other relatives or orphans or poor people attend the sharing out provide them out of it.” What does this mean? Keep such people in attendance and distribute those goods abundantly so that they will all be provided for. Instead of keeping everything for yourself, give them to all those in need so that they also benefit from that abundance.  “… and speak to them correctly and courteously.” Look, this is how we understand the environment of happiness that we will experience when the Qur’an prevails.  “… correctly and courteously.” That is because they will not be satisfied with money or goods but with correct and courteous words. It wouldn’t be acceptable if you throw those beautiful things into their faces. You should pay them compliments, you should be appeasing, you should love them so that you would be happy when you see them happy. When they feel happy because of the blessings you share with them, you would be happy as well. God would take away the troubles and problems from you. Abundance and plenty would come upon your possessions and your lives. One might think that he would have more if he cuts back; actually it turns back onto him as trouble and nothing good would come out of that, insha’Allah. 

Surat An-Nisa; Verse 9  

People should show concern in the same way that they would fear for small children if they were to die leaving them behind. They should have awe of God and say words that are appropriate.

So God tells us not to cheat them and to help them. Help whom? Look; “...small children.” Children who have no protection, handicapped children, Muslims should care for them. Muslims should try and help them having blessings and beauties. 

Surat An-Nisa; Verse 10

People who consume the property of orphans wrongfully consume nothing in their bellies except fire. They will roast in a Searing Blaze.

The Qur’an shows us how to protect the orphans and the children. We need to call them to goodness and abundance by always engaging them in the path of God, on the way of Islam. We need to protect them from their ruin, we need to protect them from unbelief if they are about to fall in unbelief. It is not enough only to feed them and give them their sustenance, they need to be taught about the Qur’an, about Islam, about the fear of God and love for God or else orphans would be ruined, they cannot be saved with food. They can only be saved with faith and the Qur’an.

 

New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (14 March 2014)

 

Patience is for life. We will love God for all eternity

You will only show patience for this trial for 70 years. But God will make you live happily for all eternity. Those 70 years of training, everything that you endured and showed patience would exalt you, it would make you more beautiful and radiant. Almighty God would of course test your love. He will of course see how devoted you are to God. And He will show that to you as well. You will see how much you love God. You will see how loyal you are. For instance when a person has a beloved one and he commits to his beloved one to death. He/she falls down and gets up and finds him again coming to her/his help, he falls ill and again finds him coming to her/his help, right? One would never leave his beloved one alone. God is the real Beloved One. And under no circumstance, even if 7000 years pass by, one would endure all sufferings. That is a characteristic of a lover. God likes that a lot; one shows patience for the sake of love he feels for Him. That is exactly a sign of love. What is the characteristic of a lover?  He doesn’t leave aside his beloved one despite of all sorts of sufferings, all sorts of hardships. And God shows us to which extend we carry that spirit of a lover. That is because we will take the greatest pleasure from the existence of God, His Manifestations in the Hereafter. 

Explanation of various verses from Surat Al-Fussilat by Mr. Adnan Oktar 

Surat Al-Fussilat; Verse 49 

Man never tires of praying for the good and if evil touches him, he despairs and loses hope.

“Man never tires of praying for the good,” says God.  Meaning he constantly asks for good things, youth, health, happiness, goods and possessions, he wants to be accepted to the best schools, he wants to have a joyous life. “… and if evil touches him,” meaning if something that doesn’t serve his interests, something that bothers him happens or when he loses his money, his means or health “… he despairs and loses hope.” Meaning he says; “I will never be saved from this point on, I am done, and there is nothing that could be done for me!” He gets lost in despair. What kind of desperation is this? He doesn’t have any hope from God [May God forbid] he says; “God cannot save me from this point on.” That means, in his mind he says; “My connection to God has been severed.” That is a disaster that befalls upon a majority of people. That is a grave disaster. That is why we need to ask for perfect submission to God. We should always be asking for perfect faith and submission to God. A Muslim should constantly ask for that blessing saying; “O Lord, make me a servant of Yours with perfect faith.” That is because it is a great blessing.  

Surat Al-Fussilat; Verse 51

When We grant blessing to a man, he turns away and draws aside but when any evil touches him, he is full of endless prayers!

“When We grant blessing to a man, he turns away and draws aside…” So God says that he doesn’t feel thankful and he knows that blessing as his right, doesn’t feel thankful and turns away. What is meant by turning away and drawing aside is that he doesn’t comply with the Qur’an, he doesn’t act in accordance with Islam, he doesn’t feel thankful and he doesn’t give his thanks to God. “… but when any evil touches him, he is full of endless prayers.” Normally such a person doesn’t pray to God. A Muslim constantly prays saying; “O Lord Praise be to You, thanks be to You, increase my faith, increase my knowledge, deem me successful in goodness.” God says such people do not pray to God. When does such a person pray? “… when any evil touches him, he is full of endless prayers!” For instance when an accident happens, when a scourge befalls on him, when he is in trouble, then he remembers Me, says God. “Otherwise, when I give him blessings, he turns away,” He says. From Who? Such people turn away from God when in perfect health. God says; “But when they are in trouble, they are full of endless prayers!” So God says; “I do not want this, I want them to pray to me when they are perfectly well and also when they are in trouble. I am their Lord.” Almighty God says; “I am the One Who gives all those troubles and I am the One Who will take away those troubles. I am the One Who gives them sickness, and I am the One Who heals them. Consequently they should have a constant connection to me.” God says this for all His servants, for all of us. 

Surat Al-Fussilat; Verse 52 

Say: "Just think. If this is from God and you deny it, who will be in greater error than he who is in open dissent?"

Say; “Just think. If this is from God and you deny it…”  Meaning if you do not accept the sufficiency of the Qur’an, if you embrace fanaticism, if you accept bigotry... “.. Just think... who will be in greater error than he who is in open dissent?” God says. This is a statement which refers to bigots and radicals. That is the statement of Almighty God. “… who will be in greater error than he who is in open dissent?” God says that radicals are the ones in greatest error by being in open dissent.  They are in open dissent; dissent from what? From the Qur’an. “Just think. If this (the Qur’an) is from God and you deny it…” How do they deny? Through superstitions. You tell them; “God said this,” and they say “No, the command of this verse has been revoked.” When you ask “how did it happen?” They say; “A goat ate it.” The other one says; “people have been made to forget.” “God made it forgotten.” The other one says; “The command of that verse has been annulled.” You say; “there is a verse about this,” they say; “verses are of no importance, but hadiths are.” [May God forbid].  Which hadiths? Made-up hadiths. They have invented a new religion with made-up, fake hadiths, and they call it Islam.  Actually, Islam is the religion taught in the Qur’an. Religion that consists of made-up hadiths cannot be called Islam. That is a polytheistic religion.

 Surat Al-Fussilat; Verse 53

We will show them Our Signs on the horizon and within themselves until it is clear to them that it is the truth. Is it not enough for your Lord that He is a witness of everything?

“We will show them Our Signs on the horizon and within themselves.” We will show them both in the outside and in themselves. “… until it is clear to them that it is the truth.”  We are at those times right now. People started to see clearly that the Qur’an is the Truth. They are seeing the facts leading to faith within themselves and they also see the events taking place in the outer world; for instance they see the incidents that take place in Syria, in Palestine. All these incidents taking place all over the world constitute the outer world and they are seeing the disasters in the outer world. People also saw that the Qur’an, the Command of God is the Truth.  When people do not live by the Qur’an, the world is dragged into a disaster. They have seen this. “Is it not enough for your Lord that He is a witness of everything?” The abjad calculation of this part gives the date 1990. That is the date all these incidents started to take place.
