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. 

 

New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (25 February 2014)

 

Explanations of verses from Surah Muhammad by Mr. Adnan Oktar  

Surah Muhammad; Verse 36  

The life of this world is merely a game and a diversion. If you have faith and piety, He will pay you your wages and not ask you for all your wealth. 

“The life of this world is merely a game and a diversion.” Almighty God says that it is “vain” in that respect. “If you have faith and piety, He will pay you your wages and not ask you for all your wealth.” Almighty God says; “I am not asking for possessions.” That is because all things belong to God anyway. 

 

Surah Mohammad; Verse 37

If He did ask you for it and put you under pressure, you would be tight-fisted and it would bring out your malevolence.

“If He did ask you for it (for all of your possessions) and put you under pressure, you would be tight-fisted…” God emphasizes this as the general character of humans. “... and it would bring out your malevolence.” Almighty God says; ‘There will be insincerity and malevolence in your hearts. If I asked for all your possessions, you might not give.’ Actually, all possessions belong to God: They will only be returning what already belongs to God. But God says; “It might be that you would not give…” Almighty God draws attention to this common disease in the character of man. 

 

Surah Mohammad; Verse 38   

“Here you are then: People who are called upon to spend in the Way of God and then some of you are tight-fisted! But whoever is tight-fisted is only tight-fisted to himself. God is Rich and you are poor. If you turn away, He will replace you with a people other than yourselves and they will not be like you.”

“Here you are then; people who are called upon to spend in the Way of God and then some of you are tight-fisted!” They take that to heart; they do not want to give. “But whoever is tight-fisted is only tight-fisted to himself.” They would only be harming themselves. God shows them such an image in their own vision. “God is Rich and you are poor…” says God. God says; “You have nothing.” “If you turn away, He will replace you with a people other than yourselves.” God says; “I will bring about another group.” “… and they will not be like you.” God says; “They will be different, they will be better.”

 

New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (23 February 2014)

 

Explanations of verses from Surat As-Saba by Mr. Adnan Oktar  

Surat As-Saba; Verse 18

We placed between them and the cities We had blessed other clearly conspicuous cities, making them measured stages on the way: ´Travel between them in safety by night and day’. 

“We placed between them and the cities We had blessed other clearly conspicuous cities, making them measured stages on the way…” So Who is the One building these cities? God is the One Who builds cities. People might say; “Look, how beautiful the cities these people have built!” Yet God says; “I am the One Who creates them, I am the One Who builds them.” If there is city that we can talk about, God is the One Who builds it. When we look around we see that city God created. “We had blessed other clearly conspicuous cities, making them measured stages on the way: ´Travel between them in safety by night and day” So God says; “I am the One Who provides the security and I am the One Who created the roads.” This is a verse that stands against idolatry. If people do not think deeply and say “we built these cities,” it would be ascribing partners to God- May God forbid. If they attempt to say that they are the ones building roads, it would again be ascribing partners to God. If they attempt to say that they are the ones providing security; that would be ascribing partners to God as well. People should always be aware of the fact that God is the One Who does them all. 

 

Surat As-Saba; Verse 21

He [satan] had no authority over them except to enable Us to know those who have faith in the Next World from those who are in doubt about it. Your Lord is the Preserver of all things.

God says that satan has no authority on people but is given this opportunity to differentiate those who believe in the Next World and those who are in doubt about it, to differentiate those with high conscientious ability.  God says; “We have given this weak means to the satan.”

“Your Lord is the Preserver of all things.” So God says “I see all Muslims and I watch over them. I know every single one.”

If you pay attention you will see that all these verses are against idolatry. Idolatry, ascribing partners to God is a grave scourge.  Hundreds, even thousands of verses of the Qur’an warn people against idolatry. Saying “It is not God, I am the one who did this, not God but he is the one who did that,” is what God detests the most. God says; “Know that I am the One Who creates all these so that I will increase the blessings I have bestowed upon you. But if you keep saying that you are the ones doing all those, I will cast you off and punish you.” That is because they would then be lying and showing ingratitude. That is why Almighty God does not approve such behavior.

 

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

 

Explanation of verses from Surah Qaf and Surat Al-Fath by Mr. Adnan Oktar

Surah Qaf; Verse 30

On the Day He says to Hell, ´Are you full?´ it will ask, ´Are there no more to come?´

This, of course, is a threat from Almighty God. People say; “Man is compassionate and merciful. God is compassionate and merciful. And He is All-Merciful.” That is right. But they say; “He would not throw His servants into  Hell.” Is God not the One Who razed nations to the ground? He is. God razed Syria to the ground. He razed Iraq to the ground, he razed Afghanistan to the ground. A hellish torture has enveloped the world right now. That means Almighty God gives such a response when what He says is not done. It is no use to plead ignorance. We need to recognize God with a plain and reasonable logic. 

Surah Qaf; Verse 31

And the Garden will be brought up close to those with piety, not far away:

God says; “...the Garden will be brought up close to those with piety, not far away” That means Heaven is up close to people, insha’Allah. 

Surah Al-Fath; Verse 4 

It is He Who sent down serenity into the hearts of Muslims thereby increasing their faith with more faith— the legions of the heavens and the earth belong to God. God is All-Knowing, All-Wise

“It is He Who sent down serenity into the hearts” “serenity.” That means people feel at ease when they have a feeling of serenity in their hearts. Sometimes God takes away that feeling. One would go crazy. He would not be able to control himself, may God forbid, once that feeling of serenity is lost, it makes one sick. One would go see a doctor, feeling puzzled about what to do. “It is He Who sent down serenity into the hearts.” For instance, God takes away serenity from one’s heart and he says; “I feel restless.” He cannot calm down. That is because God takes away that serenity. And God says; “I am the One Who sends down serenity into the hearts” That is why serenity is a great blessing.  One might say; “I am a peaceful person, what is the big deal?” Actually, serenity is a blessing bestowed upon people. If you take it away it would devastate that person. If you take away the feeling of safety, it would devastate that person. He would feel fear for no reason. An unfounded fear would haunt him if the feeling of safety is taken away. And that is dangerous, that is a scourge. Actually the feeling of safety is a blessing bestowed upon us by God. People, everyone, all of us should appreciate it as is due.   

Surat Al Fath; Verse 7

The legions of the heavens and the earth belong to God. God is Almighty, All-Wise. 

God says; “The legions of the heavens and the earth belong to God.” For instance, there is Chinese army. People call it the “Chinese army”; actually it is not the Chinese army, but the army of God. The Russian army is the army of God. The Turkish army is the army of God. God uses all armies as He likes. For instance, the Syrian army is under the command of God. They all are under the command of God.  God uses them all as He likes, however He sees fit. He inflicts them upon a persecutor if He likes, He uses them to protect the wronged ones if He likes. People cannot know the Wisdom behind it, but God does. However they will understand in the Hereafter. Almighty God tells them if He likes. 

 

New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (10 February 2014)

 

Explanations of hadiths by Mr. Adnan Oktar related to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh)  

Our Prophet foretold that there will be assassination attempts on Hazret Mahdi in the End Times; there are many hadiths related to this. Our Prophet (saas) says that there will be assassination attempts on Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) by Muslims. By Muslims, those terrorist organizations are meant here. There will be assassination attacks towards Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) by terrorists like al-Qaeda and the like. 

Bezzar, related from Hazrat Enes (ra) and said; “One day while the Prophet (saas) was sleeping in Ummu Seleme’s house, he woke up all of a sudden...” Our Prophet (saas) wakes up from his sleep all of a sudden in the night, and says; “Indeed we are for our Lord and we are returning to Him!” in Arabic. This is also a verse of the Qur’an. “Indeed we are for our Lord and we are returning to Him!” He says this rising up from his bed. Ummu Seleme says; “Why did you say this, O Messenger of God?”  She says, “Why did you say this?” Our Prophet (saas) demanded: “Because of a group of people coming from Iraq to look for that person(Hazrat Mahdi) from Medina “ The terrorists are coming from Iraq. They are specifically sent. “Almighty God protects that person (Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh)) from that group.” That is very clear. “… and they are sunk into the place they come to Beyda from in Zulhuleyf.” Meaning they are imprissoned or deactivated. (Hadiths from the classification of Jalalattin Suyuti, The portents of the Mahdi of End Times, Ali Bin Husameddin Al-Muttaki, p.54) This is only one of the various attempts of assassins, the attempted assassins of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).

The hadith states; “Mahdi is with his witnesses.”  His students are his witnesses. That is many incidents take place. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) says; “Do you remember this?” So Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) does not prove his claims with a recording but with his students. He says; “Do you remember me saying this? It happened just like I said.” “I have said this. Did it happen?” “It did.” This is what witnesses mean. It will be the same in the Hereafter as well. “We’ve talked about this. And see that it happened exactly as we said.”  He says; “Heaven is just like I have said before. Didn’t I tell you that we would sit together in the tents of Heaven?  Look, we are sitting together now.  I did tell you these with the verses, with the verses of God. And see that it happened exactly as told. Almighty God kept His Promise.  I have told you about the embroidered pillows. Here they are;  all that God says has happened exactly as He said.” Insha’Allah. 

Mr. Adnan Oktar’s explanations of verses from Surah Qaf and Surat Az-Zariyat 

Surah Qaf, Verse 41 

Listen out for the Day when the Summoner shall call out from a nearby place; 

“Listen for the Day when the Summoner shall call out from a nearby place”  Listen  for the Day when the Summoner shall call out from a nearby place.  That person calls out from a nearby place, a nearby location; maybe from the televisions in people’s houses. That is because everyone has their televisions nearby. But it says; “...a nearby place” to everyone.  That is because the verse addresses  the whole world and still  the verse says “...from a nearby location,”  insha’Allah. Although the verse refers to the Last Day, we can also clearly see that there is also a reference to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). For instance, we are now hearing  the television. From a nearby location. Everyone is hearing from a nearby location. A Summoner; someone who summons, someone who calls out. And he calls out from a nearby place.  And God says; “Listen  for that voice.” Vestemi, listen out. That is a command of God. He commands to listen for that voice from a nearby place.  

Surah Qaf, Verse 42 

The Day they hear the Blast in truth, that is the Day of Emergence.

“The Day they hear the Blast in truth.” Sayha; a great sound wave. “That is the Day of Emergence.” Evet though this verse refers to the Last Day, there is also a reference to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) here because someone’s voice is heard. It is heard everywhere, a person’s voice, a human voice is heard  everywhere in the world.  One day they will hear that great voice throughout the whole world. “...the Blast in truth, that is the Day of Emergence.” That is the day of emergence for the Muslims, it is the day of emergence for Islam, it is the day Islamic Union is declared. The verse here refers to that as well. 

“The Day they hear the Blast in truth.” The whole world hears a voice. “That is the Day of Emergence.” That is, insha’Allah, the global triumph of Islam. The first meaning refers to the Last Day, but there is a clearly evident reference to the world triumph of Islam and to the emergence of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).

Surat Adh-Dhariyat; Verses 1-5   

By the scatterers scattering, and those bearing weighty loads, and those speeding along with ease, and those apportioning the command: what you are promised is certainly true

“By the scatterers scattering” this appears to be artillery fire. “...and those bearing weighty loads” that appears to refer to tanks and heavy transport aircrafts.  “...and those speeding along with ease.” This looks like jet aircrafts. These are all very meaningful. “...and those apportioning the command.” And that refers to a military hierarchy. “...what you are promised is certainly true.” What is promised to us? Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), the Prophet Jesus Messiah (pbuh) and the Last Day. 

 

 

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

 

Explanations of hadiths related to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) by Mr. Adnan Oktar  

It has been related by Mohammad b. Hanafi; “One day, when we were with Hazrat Ali (ra) someone asked him about Hazrat Mahdi. Ali said “Alas!” and made a sign of nine with his hand, and then he said “He will appear in the End Times, when people are told “Have fear of God, have fear of God!”   So what does this mean? It means that Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will appear when there is no fear of God in the world, when there is no belief in God, at a time when Darwinism and materialism wreaked havoc on the world. (And he continued as follows):

Just like clouds accumulate in the skies, God will gather a community around him.  What do the clouds do? For instance, one comes and unite with the other cloud and becomes a giant cumulus cloud and then comes  Hazrat Ali (ra) who likens this to the system of the Mahdi, as per the information transferred to him by our Prophet (saas).   He reconciles their hearts.  So they love one another, they become friends. Normally, people cannot easily become friends anywhere in the world. Even in communities, in organizations, hearts do not reconcile that easily. They do not feel sorry for those who are martyred among them.  That means there will be those among them who will be martyred.  And they do not rejoice over those who join them.  That is because God is the One Who sends those people to them, so in that sense, they do not feel proud about their joining.

Naim bin Hammad related from Kab and ordained; as told in Katade, Mahdi will be the most auspicious one among the people in his time. “His helpers and those who pledge allegiance to him…” His students and those who support him; “… will be among the saints of Kufa, Yemen and Damascus.” What is meant by Damascus? Actually, Istanbul is the place meant here. In all the statements related to the End Times, the center of the Islamic world has been taken into consideration. These are all places that have been accepted as  capitals of the Islamic world; Kufa, Damascus, Medina. When we hear of these, we are to know that these are the centers of the Islamic world. With the use of the world “saints” the select people, people with the character of Saints are meant. 

“God dissolves blind dissensions by means of the Mahdi.” Hazrat Mahdi puts away the blind dissensions like Muslims falling out with each other, wars, conflicts, Muslims who set their hearts on the same cause picking on each other.  This is his characteristic. God makes him instrumental in that. “Everywhere becomes secure.” There will be no wars, no anarchy, and no terror anywhere in the world. Everywhere becomes secure. Being secure covers security in every aspect; safety of life, contentment of heart, everywhere being clean, well-kept and secure. For instance, if there is a building that is about to collapse, he will repair it and make it safe. Everywhere will be safe and sound; people will be safe and sound . For instance, there will not be a poisonous animal, a poisonous bug. All precautions are taken accordingly. That is what is meant by secure. For instance, now there are holes on the road children could fall in; the roads are not safe. Or there are wooden beams falling on people from the construction sites. These are not secure places. Why not? Because precautions are not taken, they don’t use their heads. At the time of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) all sorts of precautions would be taken. All precautions will be taken in every matter.

In his commentary Ibn Meduyya related the hadith from Ibn Abbas. He said ; “People of the Cave will be helpers of the Mahdi.” What does this mean? The hadith explains that Surat al-Kahf refers to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). I have said this before as well; for instance, the hadiths state that the story of Solomon also refers to Hazrat Mahdi and that the story of Dhul’Qarnayn, the story of Talut and Goliath refers to Hazrat Mahdi. Our Prophet says that the state of the people of Al-Badr, the strategy of struggle in that war, the difficult conditions of that period refer to the system of the Mahdi. 

Ibn Hajari Mekki said: “There is no contrast in between the accounts that state the helpers of the Mahdi will come from the East and the accounts that state that they will come from Iraq, because it is clearly understood from many accounts that they will be from the people of Damascus.”  What is meant here with the people of “Damascus” are actually the people of Istanbul. We are to understand that Istanbul is meant every time Damascus is mentioned. Actually the general description here fits Istanbul better; the capital of the Islamic world is meant here. What he means by “Damascus.” When we hear Basra, Kufa, Medina, Damascus we understand that the capitals of Islamic world is meant. 

In his work named Favaid, Tamman and Ibn Asakir related from Abdullah b. Amr.  “He commanded, “One of the sons of Hasan (ra) Mohammad Mahdi will appear from the East even if mountains stand in front of him.” That means there will be tricks, conspiracies, opponents  that will stand in front of him like mountains; Darwinism, materialism being the leading ones. “He will crush them” with science and knowledge, “… and he will find a way in these mountains.” There is not one mountain, there are many mountains, and he finds his way among those mountains. He walks on them, walks around them. He plays with those mountains. Mountains lose their power. Mountains will remain weak and powerless in front of him.

Naim b. Hammad related from Hazrat Ali b. Abu Talib; He commanded; “Before the Mahdi, a person from the East from among the Ahl-al Bayt.”  So that means some individuals will appear before Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) who will pave the way for him. The sayyids, sharifs will serve. For instance, this hadith might refer to the community of Menzil, to Mohammad Rashid Erol; that is because he has been instrumental in the guidance of millions of people and he gave the glad tidings of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). 

“That scholar will aim for Bayt al-Maqdis (Jerusalem) but he will die before he reaches there.”  He really could not go to Jerusalem.  He wanted to go to Jerusalem but died before he reached there. Indeed that blessed person had been martyred. 

Abu Davud related from Hazrat Ali (ra) and said that Our Prophet (saas) ordained; “A man will appear from the river. He will be called Harris. He will be a crusader.  Before him there will be a man who will be called Mansur and just like Qurayshis helping the Messenger of God (saas), he will help the family of Mohammad as well. It is a necessary act for every Muslim to help him.” That means there will be many scholars, many people, and many blessed people before the Mahdi that will pave the way for the system of the Mahdi.  For instance, his highness Suleyman Hilmi Tunahan, he is also a sayyid as you know. For instance, Bediuzzaman Said Nursi before everyone else. “A man appears from the river,” it says. “A man named Mansur.” May be Mansur, may be Harris, one of those is Bediuzzaman Said Nursi but a clear sign has not been given for either of them. Only for Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) very clear, hundreds of details have been given. I mean it is almost impossible not to recognize him. And there is also a crippled man who will be the contrast of the Mahdi and he can also be recognized more or less. Other than those, none of the other helpers can be identified. Apart from them, the dajjal (antichrist) has been explained in great details; Jesus Messiah (pbuh) has been explained in great detail as well and the moves that Jesus Messiah will make, the coded moves have been explained so that Jesus Messiah will be recognized from those. 

Look, in many hadiths people are encouraged to look for the Mahdi “even in the snow”; that means the place Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is living will be a region in which there will be snow. It is not a warm climate location.  

 

New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (23 January, 2014)

 

Explanations of hadiths by Mr. Adnan Oktar  

“Before the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), there will be a great event when oilstones in Medina will vanish in blood. In that event it will be as easy to kill a woman as to wave a whip. And this phenomenon will spread for 24 miles, and the oath of allegiance will be taken to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).

In a hadith related from Abu Huraira, it says, “There will be a great event in Madina.” It talks about a great event in Istanbul.  “In that event it will be as easy to kill a woman as to wave a whip.” So it talks about a handheld weapon that waves like a whip in the end times. So it is a weapon that waves when being shot. It waves like a whip. What is this? It is either a machine gun or a pistol. It is said that it will be every easy to kill with this weapon. It is a weapon of the end times. “And this phenomenon will spread for 24 miles, and the oath of allegiance will be taken to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).” It is the big event that happened in Taksim, Istanbul. It is one of the greatest events in the history of Istanbul because there is a detail in the hadith: oilstones in Medina will vanish in blood. In another hadith is it said “black oilstones.” Asphalt is considered as oil stones. So it is a stone structure made up of oilstones. You know that everywhere in Taksim is asphalt; black. “… this phenomenon will spread for 24 miles.” It indeed has spread right down to outer districts of Istanbul; it was a very big event. Women got killed there. Automatic pistols were also used. This hadith points to this incident. It is an event of the time of the Mahdi.

MR. ADNAN OKTAR’S EXPLANATIONS ABOUT HELL AND PARADISE

You cannot know who goes to hell or not. God doesn’t have to burn people up. He can say, “I will burn them” but He may not. God doesn't have to do it. You cannot say, “Why do You not burn them?” May God forbid. He may show you as if He is burning them, but He may not. You may think that you will not be burnt but you can be taken to hell. May God forbid. One might think that he is among the saved but he could go to hell.

You will trust in God’s mercy, compassion and wisdom, because He creates your mercy, your compassion and your reason. God makes you ask this question and God makes you give the answer. You didn't ask it, God did. You don't even know. This is called inner knowledge. You see in the movies that people are burning, but actually they are burning in your mind. How could you know that they will burn? How could you? And why does God have to do something like this? But God keeps His promise. God says, “I will burn them.” Do they burn? Yes they do. But are they literally being burnt or not? Leave it to God. This is also inner knowledge.

God promises Paradise and believers see Paradise. Believers also see hell. They come right next to hell. Everyone kneels down to feel the mightiness of Almighty God. Then it is said to believers, “You come here.” They have light both in front of them and on their rights. They are inside a vehicle of some sort. Something like a small car and God says, “There is a driver to their right.” This is a very meaningful statement. Look this is the same as the cars now. It is said, there is “light in the front and there is light on the right.” This describes a car, right? And it is said, “they also have drivers.” They are very comfortable. It is said, “They strongly hope” This is only for believers. Unbelievers cannot have such a vehicle. They just stand. God says, “They hope a lot.” When the doors of Paradise open believers go in. when they go in, they say; “As-Salamun alaikom.” Welcome. “Alaikom as-salam.” Paradise doors are closed behind them and that is it. They are there forever.

There is a need for hell. If a person does not see hell, he cannot appreciate the value of paradise. Almighty God places the Prophet Adam (pbuh) in paradise first. Here He explains very openly. You can understand inner knowledge from this example. Then He says: “I will get you out of here now.” Normally you stay in paradise forever right? He says: “No. I will get you out now because you did not abide by the rules of paradise.” He says: “You did not listen to my word.” Here there is a threat again.

The people of paradise live there abiding by the rules of Paradise. So there is fear of God in Paradise also. They apply what they learn there. They never rebel, because they are scared since they know about the world. He has seen hell and he knows the world. He neither wants to go back to the world nor to hell. Therefore, he embraces and kisses the soil of Paradise because it is a very comfortable and beautiful place. How could it be possifble to leave it?  He sees hell any time he wants from a screen. He could never be pleased with the world. They say; “Do you want to go back to the world?” He says, “No, no, no, please.” No one would ever want to go back to the world again. It would be torture to even suggest a person who has seen paradise to go back to the world. It is the same as saying, “Let me take you to hell.” God is the One Who teaches us mercy. We don't know mercy otherwise. God is the One Who teaches us the logic here.

MR. ADNAN OKTAR’S EXPLANATIONS FROM SURAT AL-HAJJ

Surat al-Hajj, Verse 30

Almighty God says; “Have done with the defilement of idols and have done with telling lies.Avoid polytheism; beware of polytheism and lying.

Surat al-Hajj, Verse 37

God says, Give good news to the good-doers.” What does “good-doers” mean? It means those who serve Islam and the Qur’an.

Surat al-Hajj, verse 40

God will certainly help those who help Him – God is All-Strong, Almighty,

The verse doesn’t say “helps.” He says “certainly helps”. What does “helping religion” mean? It means preaching religion. Telling about Islam from the television, radios and the Internet. Or telling about religion on the streets or visiting people at their homes… It means struggling to help the religion triumph and find strength.

Surat al-Hajj, verse 41

those who, if We establish them firmly on the earth, will establish salat and pay zakat, and command what is right and forbid what is  wrong. The end result of all affairs is with God.

So if We establish them firmly on the earth. Where is earth? The whole world. Where does the verse point? The system of the Mahdi... Because it talks about world dominion. “Will establish salat''. So students of Hz Mahdi (pbuh) and Muslims will pray then. They will pay alms. They will command the right; what is good. And they will avoid the evil. They will preach the religion. “The end of all affairs is with God.'' So; God says, “I will create the ending. I will make it happen.”

Surat al-Hajj, verse 42

If they deny you, the people of Noah before them denied him and those of ‘Ad and of Thamud

Almighty God says, “If they deny you…”. Now for example we say that Hz Mahdi (pbuh) will come. And they say otherwise. We say that the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will return and they say otherwise. We say that the Islamic Union will be established and they say otherwise.

Surat al-Hajj, verse 43

“… and the people of Abraham and the people of Lut”

“They also denied you'' They also said “You are not telling the truth, you are lying.”

EXPLANATIONS OF HADITHS RELATED TO HAZRAT MAHDI (PBUH) AND THE PROPHET JESUS (PBUH) BY MR. ADNAN OKTAR 

“The Mahdi will conquer Constantinople.” “Jesus (pbuh) will descend from the skies and confess his (Mahdi’s) emirship.  Jesus will be asked to lead the prayer but he will respond saying; “The Emir is among you. This is a blessing of God to the community of Muhammad.”

Now how will we recognize Jesus (pbuh)?  We will recognize him from his words. That is because no one else can say this; it is not in their destiny. These are coded words; these are passwords in a sense. We will understand him from these code words.

When Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is performing the morning prayer with the believers at the Bayt al-Maqdis [Jerusalem], he will introduce the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) who has appeared, and the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will place his hands on his shoulder and say, “The call to the prayer has been issued for you, so you must lead it,” and finally Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will lead the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and the believers in prayer.

For instance, another code here is that it will happen while Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is performing morning prayers with the Muslims in Bayt al-Maqdis; while performing the morning prayers in Jerusalem. Now morning time is a code, it has to happen in the morning . The place; Bayt al-Maqdis, Jerusalem. The place where Jesus (pbuh) will be recognized should be Jerusalem. Mahdi (pbuh) will introduce the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) who will descend from the skies at that time. He will say; “He should be Jesus (pbuh).”  Jesus will not say “I am Jesus.” He will say “Insha’Allah.”  They will say; “God knows the truth, you are Jesus (pbuh).” And the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will place his hands on his (Mahdi’s) shoulders. He places his hands on his shoulders and that is a code as well, that is a coded behavior. He will say; “The call to the prayer has been issued for you, so you must lead it.”  When Mahdi (pbuh) insists that he should lead the prayer, Jesus will first say; “The call to the prayer has been issued for you, so you should lead the prayer.” Mahdi (pbuh) initially takes a step forward but then retreats. And then Jesus Messiah says; as a treat from Almighty God; “You are the imam of the whole world. And I am a subject to you. And that is why you have the superiority of imamate. So you should be the one to lead the prayer.” He can only then persuade the Mahdi (pbuh), or else we see that there is a struggle in between them to push the other to the front by pushing his from his shoulders, etc. So much so that the discussion has exceeded the verbal limits and he pushes the Mahdi from his shoulders and eventually Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will lead the Muslims in prayer as their imam. Now here, both Mahdi (pbuh)’s position as the Mahdi and Jesus Messiah’s position as  Jesus Messiah is understood by the dominant assumption. That is because this happens only  once in destiny. All the codes foretold to us by our Prophet (saas) would then be confirmed, so we would be right by the dominant assumption.  However Mahdi (pbuh) will not say “I am the Mahdi” after this incident either, he would not let anyone call him the Mahdi, people would only carry good assumptions about him.  Also for Jesus Messiah (pbuh), we will say; “God knows the truth this is Jesus Messiah.”

Our Prophet (saas) says; “The Prophet Jesus Messiah would appear while his hair looks like water is dropping from his hair.” Now that also is a coded reference; this is a material code. That is because normally a person’s hair would not look like it's wet if it is not actually wet; it would be very hard to find such hair, it is one in a billion. When you touch his hair, his hair would be dry but would still look like it is dripping wet, there is an exaggerated wetness. That is miraculously surprising. And that is the evidence of Jesus Messiah. 

People will rush there in groups and everyone going there would gain abundance from him. What does abundance mean? An abundance comes to his soul, his body, his business. For instance, he would get even younger and more alive, his face becomes even more beautiful, his skin gets even more beautiful, his speech becomes even more beautiful, all his business starts to go on the way, he starts to get pleasure from life and feels happy. He feels an extraordinariness upon himself. Look what does our Prophet (saas) says; “Anyone visiting him will gain abundance from him. “ So people gain abundance from that blessed person.

Explanations of verses from  Surat Al-An'am by Mr. Adnan Oktar 

Surat Al-An'am; Verse 65 

Say: "He possesses the power to send you punishment from above your heads or from beneath your feet, or to confuse you in sects and make you taste one another's violence." Look how We vary the Signs so that hopefully they will understand.

Say: "He possesses the power to send you punishment from above your heads or from beneath your feet, or to confuse you in sects and make you taste one another's violence."   Now there are some accusations brought about Israel all over the world, but God explains to us the rule here.  And He says; "Say: ´He possesses the power to send you punishment from above your heads or from beneath your feet… "A bomb drops down from above their heads or the building collapses from beneath their feet.  A grave disaster comes upon them as the result of the collapse of the building. "...or to confuse you in sects and make you taste one another's violence" What is going on in Syria right now?  Muslims are tasting one another's violence. Who is the One that makes them do that? God. "He possesses the power to make you taste one another's violence." In Iraq, in Afghanistan, Muslims all taste one another's violence.  God says that He is the One Who creates that violence.  "Look, how We vary the Signs so that hopefully they will understand," says God.  God wants to make Himself thought about. He wants people to get close to Him and make Islam prevail in the world. God warns those people who are indifferent, who are reluctant and who act far-out by creating violence. He catches their attention by making use of violence, by hardships and by pain. Otherwise, people might get into a state of indolence, laziness and apathy.  But in such violent incidents, a sharp awakening takes place. That is why Bediuzzaman says; "...the great urge to protect Islam will rejoice." And he says; "Mahdi will take the lead and lead the ummah to the true path and the truth."

Surat Al-An'am; Verse 66 

"Your people deny it and yet it is the Truth. Say: ´I am not here as your guardian."

By saying "Your people," Almighty God means Muslims: All of them. "Your people deny it and yet it is the Truth." While the Qur'an is enough, as the Truth, they regarded the Qur'an as insufficient, says God. "Say; I am not here as your guardian."  Meaning my task here is to tell you about the Truth but when a scourge comes upon you, you are the ones responsible of that. 

Surat Al-An'am: Verse 67

"Every communication has its time and you will certainly come to know."   

"Every communication…" For instance, the news about Syria. There is a time for that as well. What is the time for that? For instance, one day you get up and see that the  time for that news has come.  They say; "There has been an explosion in Syria." They say "Syria has turned into a bloodbath." They say; "This and that happened in Iraq." or for instance, this and that happened in elsewhere.  The verse reads; "Every communication has its time and you will certainly come to know." We should never forget about this verse while reading about these stories. The time has come so God presented us that communication. For instance, some other things will happen tomorrow and we will read about that news as well. There will be some other news in the day after. We will hear about them, there will be many other incidents and we will hear about that news as well. But God says; "I am the One creating this news. I create all these television and radio reports, newspaper reports; I am the One creating all communications. And for all those incidents there is a time I have determined. When that time comes, you will be hearing about them."

Surat Al-An'am; Verse 68

When you see people engrossed in mockery of Our Signs, turn from them until they start to talk of other things. And if satan should ever cause you to forget, once you remember, do not stay sitting with the wrongdoers.

God says  even if you forget in the beginning, when reminded, do not stay with those who talk against the Qur'an. Do not sit with them and do not listen to them. If there is such an environment, if there is such a gathering, it would not be right for you to sit there and listen to them speak, says God in the verse. That is because they are talking against the Qur'an. 

Surat Al-An'am, Verse 70 

Abandon those who have turned their religion into a game and a diversion and who have been deluded by the life of this world. Remind by it lest a person is delivered up to destruction for what he has earned with no protector or intercessor besides God. Were he to offer every kind of compensation, it would not be accepted from him. Such people are delivered up to destruction for what they have earned. They will have scalding water to drink and a painful punishment because they were unbelievers.

Abandon those who have turned their religion into a game and a diversion and who have been deluded by the life of this world. For instance, look at some of the hodjas working in mosques, some religious people, some scholars when they make a house visit, you can test it if you like.  If you listen to their conversations or their television conversations, listen to their private conversations, you would see that they are making speeches that mock religion. They either mock Heaven, or Hell, or angels in their own minds; you have seen many examples of this on TV channels. You see people laughing hard at them. And you see that they are consumed in the life of this world with the feeling of haughtiness. They have a feeling of haughtiness and fame because they think that they have fame, they feel proud of themselves when their names are heard here and there. In fact they will be dead in a while. They will be all    their graves. Neither their fame, nor their haughtiness is left behind. Not even their bones will remain. Everything they have will melt away. "Remind by it [the Qur'an] lest a person is delivered up to destruction for what he has earned with no protector or intercessor besides God" So what are we supposed to remind them with? The Qur'an. Not superstitions; a Muslim should never approach  any superstitions, or else they will be delivered up to destruction for what they have earned, because of their abnormal acts. Meaning they will thus be ruining their lives both in this world, and in the Hereafter. 

 

New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (19 January, 2014)

 

 

Mr. Adnan Oktar's explanations regarding Dabbat Al-Ardh

Dabbat Al-Ardh is a computer. That is because the hadith states; "It makes its voice heard all around the world," for Dabbat al-ardh. "Its voice is heard all around the earth and the skies; with a single step, it travels seven thousand parasangs." This is thousands of kilometers. What is this? It makes its voice heard by everyone in the skies and in the air and it talks about God. "It has the appearance of a bearded person," the accounts state. So the Mahdi (pbuh) will talk on the television, on the radio and on the computers and everyone will see him. They will see his beard and his body as well, they will see his face. He will address the people. "Tukallimuhum ennen nâse," [he will talk to people] says God in the Qur'an. He is addressing people on the television, on the radio right now, he addresses Muslims and there is a reference to the address of the Mahdi (pbuh) in that hadith. That is because there is a reference to a person with a beard and a reference to his face. That means he will appear as a bust and he will talk to them. There is no reference to a full appearance but to a face. The hadith states; "Dabbat al-ardh will have connections under the ground as well."  "It covers the whole world like a branch of a tree, like the roots of a tree."  As a matter of fact, the internet cables are under the ground, it is under the sea. The hadith also states that it will go under the sea. The hadith states; "It makes a net under the sea as well." What can that be? The hadith reads, "Min el ardh…" (from the earth). We look and see what the computers are made of; aluminum, copper, cobalt, zinc is used, silicon is used, they all are made of soil,  and the only characteristic given is that it speaks to people and that it moves. "Dabbat" means floundering, it means moving, and it means small movements that are not visible to the eye.  When we look at the television we see that the image consists of the movements of very small dots [pixels]. The image is made up of movements of small dots. It is in complete compliance in that respect as well and the hadith states: "All sorts of colors are available in Dabbat al-Ardh." When we look at the television we see that there are all kinds of colors. Our Prophet (saas) says that this will appear in the time of the Mahdi (pbuh) and it really has appeared in his time. We understand that it will be something that will help the Mahdi (pbuh).
