ADNAN OKTAR: "I do have a question, I would appreciate if you could pass it to Master. Why do you use the term "Turkish-Islamic Union" instead of "Islamic Union"? Is it not accounted as racism?" Then you would be leaving them headless. They have always left Muslim world leaderless. I mean if a leader steps forward he needs to hold that leadership tight. If we were to say; "There will be the Unity of Islam." Then let us see who the leader will be? It might be Egypt, it might be Pakistan, it might be Iran, it might be Turkey. The man would say; "well then give it a name." But now, we'd just say; "It might be Pakistan, it might be Egypt, it might be Turkey or it might also be Indonesia." Such a Union of Islam would not happen. A leader should step forward. That leader has already stepped forward; it is a natural leader. The Messenger of Allah (saas) has foretold us about that natural leader through revelation. It is Turkey. Turks are the natural leader. He [Our prophet (saas)] says; "Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will appear in Istanbul," and that is the end of the discussion. "He will unfurl his flag first among Turks," says our Prophet. What does this mean? Our Prophet (saas) openly, explicitly refers to Turks. "Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will be wherever the holy relics are." Where are the holy relics? They are all here, they are right beside us. That is why we are referring to it as the "Turkish-Islamic Union". So the nation that will be serving to this end, will be the Turkish nation. That is the servant of the whole Islamic world. The Islamic World will gather around the Turkish nation, that is the whole point. Or else we are not saying; "Turks are superior. We are genetically superior, we are a superior race, have a look at our genetic structure you will see our superiority." The superiority here lies in service. Yet in respect of piety, Turkish nation is actually a nation that lives Islam beautifully. The whole world accepts this fact. But do they not have any flaws? They do. But the leader is the Turkish nation. Other than that we do not have any claim of superiority and we would never have such a claim. Anyone claiming that would be in error. If anyone says that he would be making a mistake. That is because the Messenger of Allah (saas) says; "superiority in the Sight of Allah is only gained through piety. Persians do not have any superiority over the Arabs and Arabs do not have superiority over the Persians." That is very clear. "Persians do not have superiority over the Arab, Arabs do not have superiority over the Persians. Superiority is only gained through piety," he says. The standard is defined here. That means there is no discussion of race here. Yet about the leadership, the name of the leader should be clearly pronounced. That is it, that is the point that we are trying to explain.
