IN THE QUR’AN GOD DRAWS ATTENTION TO WILD CAPITALISM 

Surah Sad Verse 23 

[ I seek refuge with God from the satan] “This brother of mine has ninety-nine ewes and I have only one. He said, "Let me have charge of it," and got the better of me with his words.” 

Look, God tells us about wild capitalism here. One has 99 ewes and the other has only one and that one says “Let me have charge of it so that you will have nothing.” This verse of the Qur’an, verse 23 of Surah Sad,  is a perfect description of wild capitalism.

MR. ADNAN OKTAR’S EXPLAINS THE SURAT AT-TAWBA

Surat at-Tawba, verse 23

“You who have faith, do not befriend your fathers and brothers if they prefer disbelief to faith. Those among you who do befriend them are wrongdoers.” 

“You who have faith, do not befriend your fathers and brothers if they prefer disbelief to faith.”  If they advocate disbelief in any matter; for instance if they do not accept any of the commands of the Qur’an, if they do not accept any of the commands of Islam do not befriend your fathers and brothers. For instance you befriend your father for instance even though he is against many of the commands of religion. You embrace your brother even though he doesn’t abide by many commands of Islam for instance. “Those among you who do befriend them are wrongdoers.” What is it that we have here? Those going on their way, I mean those who do as they tell them to do, those who get under their command; that is what is meant in the verse. That is to say those who abide by their wrongful commands, those who abide by the commands that are not right. Or else it doesn’t come to mean do not give them the time of the day, do not talk to them, do not greet them, do not give consequence to them and be their enemies. Look, if you think sincerely the same words are used; “You who have faith, do not befriend your fathers and brothers if they prefer disbelief to faith.” God says the same thing for Christians and Jews. “You who have faith! Do not take the Jews and Christians as your friends” (Surat Al Maidah, 51) The same words are used in this verse as well. What is meant here is not to be their enemies, it is not to be up against them and to strive against them; it means not to accept their governing, their administration. It means not to abide by their belief in a matter, not to follow their lead. This is what is meant.

SAFETY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING FOR A PERSON. SAFETY AND LOVE. SECURING SAFETY IS THE STRONGEST INSTINCT.  That is also valid for animals as well. Animals live in a constant alertness, all cats, squirrels, lions, all animals live in restless mood. This is an instinct given to humans by God as well. Prophet Abraham (pbuh) prays to God saying; “´My Lord! Make this land a place of safety”.  “When Ibrahim said, ´My Lord! Make this land a place of safety and keep me and my sons from worshipping idols.” (Surah Ibraham, 35)  That is the first thing he asks for. For instance God says; “the city that is safe,” for Mecca. “You were wandering around safely,” says God.  That for instance is a characteristic of the Heaven; it is an abode of safety. There is no risk in it.  “My Lord! Make this land a place of safety” The abjad calculation gives the date 2011. 

MR. ADNAN OKTAR’S EXPLANATIONS ON VARIOUS VERSES

Surat Az-Zukhruf, verse 57

“When an example is made of the son of Maryam your people laugh uproariously.”

When an example made of the son of Maryam, your people,” these people are Muslims, “laugh uproariously,” God says. They are making fun -may God forbid- of the Jesus Messiah. And God shows us that He will take revenge.  God says that making fun of Jesus Messiah draws God’s wrath and that He will take revenge. That is what they still keep saying- may God forbid. “Would Jesus Messiah rise from the dead?” they say, may God forbid. Let me see if you can say this in the Hereafter. Let me see if you can say that to Jesus Messiah when he comes.  

Surat Al-Maidah, verse 82

“..You will find the people most affectionate to believers are those who say, ´We are Christians.´ That is because some of them are priests and monks and because they are not arrogant.”

“You will find the people most affectionate to believers are those who say, ´We are Christians.” Now see what God says? Love. Do you know what this means?  When you look into the verses you do so by looking at the verses from one side to the other. “You will find the people most affectionate to believers”  What is the meaning of this verse?  It means you should love them as well. That is what the verse actually means. Now if someone loves you and you do not love that person back, you cannot talk about love. What does this mean then? It means that “you should love them even more.” That is the meaning of the verse. “There should be affection, love all around,” God says in the verse. We should not look at the verses single sidedly. For instance; “That is bad.” What does this mean? It means something contrary to that is good. That is what it means. 

 

New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (27 May 2013)

 

THE FACT THAT OUR PROPHET (SAAS) IS A MESSENGER OF GOD IS REVEALED TO EVERYONE’S HEART

It is not that difficult to understand a Prophet anyway. God reveals that in one’s heart. I mean one might ask; “How am I to understand that he is a prophet?” Do you know how you can understand? That would be revealed to your heart. From that you will understand. THE FACT THAT OUR PROPHET (SAAS) IS A MESSENGER OF GOD IS REVEALED TO EVERYONE’S HEART.

One might resist and say that he doesn’t understand just because he is resisting. How can you not understand? A clear, straight information comes to your heart as a revelation. THE FACT THAT OUR PROPHET IS THE MESSENGER OF GOD WOULD BE REVEALED TO EVERY SINGLE PERSON’S HEART BY GOD. People resist. There is nothing to misunderstand about that. If you like you can talk to people around and you would see that they would frequently blurt out. I mean you would sense from their talks that they believe in him. So they do believe in our Prophet. And there is no reason for not to believe anyway, there is no logic. I mean there has to be a point that makes them feel uneasy about my dear Prophet, the Prophet Mohammad(saas).For instance, they should be able to say “I do not love him because of this or that reason.” But they cannot find any such reasons, because there is none, there would not be any. Or else we tell them to “give us a proof to state that he is not a Prophet”, for instance we ask them to say “he cannot be a Prophet because of this or that.” They cannot say anything to that either. For that reason abiding one’s good conscience is enough at that point.

MR. ADNAN OKTAR EXPLAINS  SURAH YUSUF

Surah Yusuf, 54th verse

The King said, ‘Bring him to me straight away! so I may draw him very close to me.’ When he had spoken with him, he declared, ‘Today you are trusted, established in our sight." 

What makes a person clever? Reliability. So, hear what he says first? [He says that Joseph is] A trusted person. A reliable person is a perfect fit for leadership. ‘In our sight’. So, we understand that Muslims can do great services in a country’s management force, as long as they have useful activities. The Qur'an refers to that. 

Surah Yusuf, 55th verse

He said, ‘Entrust the country's stores to me. In truth I am a knowing guardian.’

‘He [Joseph] said, ‘Entrust the country's stores to me.’ Whoever has the control over  capital, controls the country. This is true all around the world. Being in charge of  capital will ensure being in charge of the country. This is how it works all around the world. ‘In truth I am a knowing guardian.’ Another quality of a believer. He is reliable, knowing. What is highlighted here? His protectiveness. What does he guard? Everyone, everything. People, animals, plants, everything. ‘Knowing’. So Muslims should be knowledgeable, educated and reliable. Knowing. You know there is that saying ‘ask someone who knows’. He knows.

Surah Yusuf, 56th verse

And thus We established Joseph in the land so he could live in any place he pleased. We grant Our grace to anyone We will and We do not allow to go to waste the wage of any people who do good.

‘And thus We established Joseph in the land so he could live in any place he pleased.’ It was so safe, he could go on a journey, stop anywhere he wanted and then move on again. He could go to many places, could stay at different locations. It is a nice thing for a person to travel to a lot of places, enjoy the company of different hosts.  ‘We grant Our grace to anyone We will’. Allah wishes His grace for Hz. Mahdi (as) and grants it to him. Allah wishes it for Prophet Joseph (as) and grants to him ‘...and We do not allow to go to waste the wage of any people who do good’. The numerical value of this part of the verse is 1998. If a person is good, if he has a good character, if he is wise, Almighty Allah says, I will definitely grant my grace to him. 

Surah Yusuf, 59th verse

Then, having supplied their needs, he said to them, ‘Bring me your brother, your father’s youngest son. Do you not see that I dispense full measure and am the most hospitable of hosts?. There is a reason for this, but we’ll talk about that later. ‘Do you not see that I dispense full measure?’ What is one of the most defining characteristics of Muslims? They are honest. They dispense full measure. Everything they do, their speech, attitude, how they use their time, their business, in everything they do, they are always reasonable and achieve the right measure. ‘[I] am the most hospitable of hosts.’ What was a very distinctive quality of Prophet Abraham (as)? He was hospitable, he was a great host. He was full of love for people. When he had guests, he was always generous. He offered them the best food, gave them presents, took them  sightseeing. Prophet Joseph (as) had the same character. Joseph (as) was the same.

MR. ADNAN OKTAR EXPLAINS THE SURAH MASSAD

Surah Massad, 1st verse

Ruin to the hands of Abu Lahab and ruin to him!

Allah ruined the hands of the system of the anti-Christ . THE HANDS OF MATERIALISM AND DARWINISM WERE RUINED INTELLECTUALLY. THEY WERE HURTING PEOPLE WITH THOSE HANDS.  With Communism and Fascism, with Darwinism and Materialism. Always comes in two's. Allah desiccated both hands.

Surah Massad, 2nd verse

His wealth has not helped him nor anything he has earned.

Wild capitalism, imperialism. They’ve collapsed, completely disappeared. [Because of those wrong ideologies] People are suffering, committing suicide, wallowing in pain. Unhappiness has spread everywhere. Terrorism and anarchy is climbing. THE PEOPLE WHO WERE TRAINED AS DARWINISTS AND MATERIALISTS CAME BACK AS KILLING MACHINES.  For example, they say “this is Islamic terror”. However, then it turns out that all those terrorists were trained in the UK or America, as Darwinists and materialists. Their pictures of them in bars, in discos in America, surface. They are actually Darwinist, materialist people. Then they go and blow up places  and some call it the ‘Islamic terror’. It is not Islamic terror, it is Darwinist terror. It is materialist terror. They are Darwinists and materialists. “His wealth has not helped him nor anything he has earned."The  USA, Europe, many countries got very rich, but their wealth did not help them. The numerical value of the verse is 2011. What happened in 2011?  The economic crisis worsened. 

Surah Massad, 3rd -4th verse

He will burn in a Flaming Fire.

And so will his wife, the firewood-carrier.

This verse also refers to the spirit of some unblessed marriages in the end of the times. It is because the husband drags his wife to hell, or the wife drags her husband  to hell. The marriage should be done for blessings, for closeness to Allah. [In marriages for other worldly reasons] troubles arise, it just becomes a nightmare. The husband makes a devout wife an irreligious person or vice versa; the wife makes the husband irreligious.  

Surah Massad, 5th verse

with a rope of twisted fibre round her neck.

The Qur'an refers to the fact that [in such marriages] they treat each other like animals. What is a rope around the neck and dragging each other? It is done to animals, right? Allah explains that they are dragging each other like animals. Allah says that they drag each other like animals, both in this world and in the hereafter and that they use each other like porters. In other words, they treat each other as if the other one is a porter. They make them do all the labor, use them; the Qur'an refers to that, ‘firewood carrier’. That is how the current brutal system is using the women, it tells them ‘Just sit at home, do your chores, wash this, wash that’. They are burdened with a huge burden: It is both a spiritual and physical burden. This verse refers to that pain, as well.

HEARTS WILL FIND PEACE ONLY WITH THE REMEMBRANCE OF ALLAH”

IF THE HEART FEELS DISTRESSED, SO WILL THE MIND. May Allah give the peace and serenity of continuous faith. SERENITY AND PEACE COME FROM FAITH. Many people wrongly think, “I’ll feel better once I get some fresh air.” Your satan will follow you to get fresh air and make sure that you won’t feel better. Or they say, “If I eat something, I’ll feel better”. Your satan will eat with you. “Hearts will find peace only with the remembrance of Allah.” [I seek refuge in Allah from the accursed satan.] This is a verse, insha’Allah.

HADITH EXPLANATIONS BY MR. ADNAN OKTAR

I approached Imam Bakir and asked him: "When will Qaim Muhammad Mahdi arrive?" He answered: "The same question was asked before the Messenger of Allah and he answered as follows: "His emergence is like the sudden resurrection.”  (Questions and Answers about Imam Mahdi, Sayyid Hussein Hoseini)

Glory be to Allah, so it will be very sudden. And he will have such a strong effect, the seemingly dead Islamic world will revive. It will come back to life, it will breathe again, insha’ Allah.

THE HISTORICAL GATE IN ISRAEL AWAITS THE COMING OF HAZRAT MAHDI (AS)

In Israel there is a high mountain that Hazrat Mahdi (as) will visit. Jews have already prepared it. They keep it very clean, it is very well cared for. And THE HISTORICAL GATE THAT HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WILL GO THROUGH. IT IS A THOUSANDS YEARS OLD GATE AND IT IS KEPT CLOSED. JUST WHEN HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) APPEARS, SHILOH, THAT IS WHEN KING MESSIAH APPEARS, THAT MESSIAH APPEARS, THAT HISTORICAL GATE WILL BE OPENED FOR THE FIRST TIME. Indeed its route is also prepared; he will go downhill. That historical gate is opened; he enters Jerusalem through it insha’Allah. All Jews, everyone will be ready there insha’Allah. Christians, Jews, Muslims. The heavens and Earth will resound with the name of Allah, insha’Allah. While leading the morning prayer, the morning prayer, then Prophet Jesus (as) appears. It will be immediately apparent that there is something extraordinary. They will accompany Hazrat Mahdi (as) downhill, insha’Allah. Notice that that historical gate has never been opened. It has never been opened. And it is also not demolished. It is specially preserved.

A HADITH EXPLANATION BY MR. ADNAN OKTAR

At morning prayer time Prophet Jesus (as) will appear all of a sudden.” Morning prayer time, this is very meaningful. “Imam Mahdi will recognize him and introduce him to the community of believers.” Masha’Allah. It is amazing that he will recognize him by the moment he looks at him. “Prophet Jesus (as) will ask Hazrat Mahdi (as) to lead the prayer and he will pray behind Hazrat Mahdi (as).” They will pray the morning prayer together. “Prophet Jesus (as) will say, ‘Open the doors now.”” That means, remove the barriers, walls, precautions and hurdles. Open the gates. “Remove the precautions all over the world.” “The anti-Christ who saw Hazrat Mahdi (as) will dissolve as if salt dissolves in water.” SALT DISSOLVES IN WATER VERY QUICKLY BUT IT REALLY DOES NOT DISAPPEAR. IT DISAPPEARS AS  AN IMAGE. THIS MEANS THAT PEOPLE WILL NOT DISAPPEAR, THEIR IDEOLOGIES WILL DISAPPEAR AND SWIFTLY, LIKE SALT. IT IMMEDIATELY DISAPPEARS IN WATER BUT IT DOES NOT LOSE ITS TRAIT; THE SALT REMAINS. BUT PEOPLE WILL BE LIKE WATER IN APPEARANCE, THERE IS REFERENCE TO IT.

The Hadith that refers to the Massacre that happened on May 1st, 1977,

There is reference to “Oily rocks”; it is a miracle that “asphalt” is mentioned here. “There appears a great massacre in Madina”, in Istanbul. “So that oily rocks are clouded over blood. In this incident the murder of a woman is as simple as whipping.” Here there is an open reference to the fact that people will be killed by weapons. As if swinging a whip. FOR INSTANCE, WHAT DOES A PERSON WHO TAKES A PISTOL IN HIS HAND DO? HE SIMPLY SWINGS IT, HIS HAND CONSTANTLY MOVES BECAUSE OF THE RECOILING OF THAT PISTOL. LIKE THE SWINGING OF A SWORD. THAT IS SO EASY. IN OTHER WORDS, IT IS RELATED THAT BULLET WILL KILL PEOPLE BUT ITS IMPACT ON PEOPLE WILL BE AS EASY AS SWINGING A SWORD. This is an amazing explanation. Like the swinging of a sword. There is reference to the recoiling of a weapon. “This incident spreads a range of 24 miles from Madina.” That is, from Istanbul. That is, this is an incident that influenced a wide area; there is reference to the incident that happened on May 1st, 1977. This hadith is related from Abu Hurayra.

 HELL HAS MANY LAYERS

HELL ALSO HAS MANY LAYERS. THERE ARE SUCH PLACES IN HELL THAT ONE SITS THERE AND CONVERSES. It is simply a calm place, very plain but the pain there stems from its comparison to paradise.  Hell is in degrees.

IN OTHER WORDS, THERE IS NO FIRE IN EVERY PART OF HELL. IT IS NOT UNIFORM. There is intense torment for the unruly ones. SOME PARTS OF PARADISE ARE CALMER.

For instance, our Prophet (saas) had some relatives who were well-mannered but who did not believe. Notice that they were not believers, although they were well-mannered. The Companions of our Prophet (saas) were even baffled, they were saying, “How come they do not believe?” They had such good morals, they were so well-mannered, so clean, they were so reverent; they said, “I don’t believe in Allah.” Bediuzzaman says: “That is why we can think of hell as a like that of this world. It is cozy.” That is to say, it is not somewhere that they will feel any pain, because of their reverence and love for our Prophet (saas) and because they supported him. But they are definitely destined to hell, there are so many layers of hell  that resemble the world. For instance, that the most comfortable layer reminds one of the world. It reminds one of the life in this world. But because they make comparison to this world, they suffer a lot. That is why they suffer because the ease in paradise is shown to them. The place in which they reside is like this world; we can have a grasp of it when we compare this world to paradise. That is why they feel uncomfortable.

HADITH EXPLANATIONS BY MR. ADNAN OKTAR

HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) IS HE WHO IS REVERENT, GREATLY REVERENT BEFORE THE GREATNESS OF ALLAH; like an eagle who spreads his wings and lowers his head, plunging to earth from the peak of the sky. HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) HAS REVERENCE AND VENERATION BEFORE ALMIGHTY ALLAH. Allah has manifested Himself and His greatness in His body, and he has been subsumed in the existence of Allah. (Al-Mahdi al-Maw'ud, Vol. 1, pp. 280, 300)

We have explained a great deal about the nature of matter. We have explained that people are like spirits; thus, Hz. Mahdi (as) is a person who subsumes in the existence of Allah. There is a stage when one will cease to be physical and turn into holy light, in a sense. He will look like he has a physical presence, but will no longer be like that. This refers to that, insha’ Allah. 

 

New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (24 April 2013)

 

ANGELS LOVE BELIEVERS VERY MUCH AND PRAY FOR THEM

THE ANGELS LOVE BELIEVERS VERY MUCH AND GIVE THEM THE GOOD NEWS OF HEAVEN. FOR EXAMPLE, THEY CALL OUT TO BELIEVERS, SAY THINGS TO THEM, BUT THE BELIEVERS DON’T HEAR THEM, BECAUSE THE ANGELS ARE IN A DIFFERENT DIMENSION. FOR EXAMPLE, THEY SAY, ‘MAY ALLAH REWARD YOU WITH HEAVEN”, AND THEY SAY, “MAY ALLAH BE PLEASED WITH YOU”. THEY LOVE THE BELIEVERS VERY MUCH. HOWEVER, IT IS LIKE THEY ARE SPEAKING FROM BEHIND A GLASS SCREEN. SINCE THEY ARE IN THE THIRD DIMENSION, THEY CAN SEE THE SECOND DIMENSION. THEY CAN SEE, BUT THEY CANNOT COMMUNICATE. IN OTHER WORDS, THEY SEE US BUT WE CANNOT SEE THEM; THEY CAN HEAR US BUT WE CANNOT HEAR THEM. OUR DIMENSION IS NOT SUITABLE TO DO THAT. IF WE WERE IN THE THIRD DIMENSION AS WELL, WE WOULD HAVE SEEN THEM RIGHT AWAY BUT SINCE WE ARE IN THE SECOND DIMENSION, WE CANNOT SEE ANY OF THEM. HOWEVER, THEY CAN COMFORTABLY SEE US IN THE THIRD DIMENSION.

Hadith explanations by Mr. Adnan Oktar

“Imam Mahdi will brighten the whole world like a sun rising in the horizon. Imam Mahdi is a bright full moon, a bright flame, holy light illuminating everywhere, a star that shows the way in darkness.” 

So he will be seen everywhere through TV and will brighten up everyone. This is what is meant with sun and light. Light, illumination. He will illuminate people with ideas and thoughts. What will happen when the sun rises?  It will rise for every home,  everywhere. So Hz. Mahdi (as) will rise like a sun, brightening up everywhere through TVs, radios  and the internet and will put an end to tyranny with his ideas, opinions and bring light.   Insha’ Allah. 

And Hz. Mahdi (as) will shine like a light amidst all the darkness of Darwinism, materialism, Stalinism, communism in the End  Times.  He will shine through radios, TVs, everywhere, just like light. He will eliminate this poison with his ideas, thoughts and beautiful attitude. That’s what it means.   

“Imam Mahdi, is a delicious water for the thirtsy, a guide that shows the right way, a savior that saves from destruction. Imam Mahdi, is like a guiding light above to help the lost ones. He is warmth for those who are freezing cold. He is a reliable guide in dangerous roads. Whoever leaves his (Imam Mahdi’s) side, is doomed to be ruined.” 

He is not just water but a delicious water. Hz. Mahdi (as), insha’ Allah, is a beautiful being that saves people from the darkness of Darwinism, materialism and atheism.  He is a ‘guiding light’, a lantern, so this means he will be situated in a high place. He will teach warm love, the love of Allah to those people whose hearts are frozen. Very beautiful. Prophet Mohammed (pbuh) explained Hz. Mahdi (as) so beautifully, so wisely. 

So, he is a reliable guide, masha’ Allah, especially at  difficult times, times of military coups, attacks, transitions.

“...whoever leaves, is doomed to be ruined”. It is because if he cannot appreciate that beautiful person, he cannot appreciate the religion, the beauty, the love. Prophet Mohammed (pbuh) says, ‘He will lose his mind, his abilities’. Such a big disaster, seeing Hz. Mahdi (as) and not following him. May Allah forbid. 

“Imam Mahdi is a cloud that brings rain. A drizzling rain. A sun that gives out light. He is a sharp eye, a lush green garden, a garden of roses. Imam Mahdi is like a warm companion and friend, a compassionate father, a real brother, the refuge for the servants of Allah when the disasters befall.” 

There are clouds; it should rain, but it is not raining. Therefore, Hz. Mahdi (as) will act as a catalyst. For example, Turkey is ready, the world is ready for the Islamic Union, but a catalyst is needed. Hz. Mahdi (as) will act as that catalyst. He will bring down the rains, he is the means for the rains to fall. The clouds are full of rain. The Islamic world is ready, too. The clouds are hovering overhead, full of rain but the rain doesn’t come down; they are waiting there. Allah makes Hz. Mahdi (as) the means for the rains to fall.

“A drizzling rain.” He will educate people all day long, slowly, like a drizzling rain.  How? Through radio, TV, internet, with his books.

“A sharp eye”, so he will not miss anything. He is very careful. He will immediately catch it when there is something against Islam. He will immediately notice. This also shows that he will have very sharp eyes, physically. So it is literal, too. Prophet Mohammed (pbuh) explained it all so perfectly. It is clear enough, but it could be explained part by part, too.
