Why do you use the term "Turkish-Islamic Union" instead of "Islamic Union"?

Turkish Islamic Union

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. 
Kurds, Turks, Laz, Circassian, our nation is mixed anyway. There are people from all nationalities. We, as Muslims are in unity under the name of Islam. And we call that "Turkish", we call those people living in the Republic of Turkey "Turks". For those who say that they are "Turks" it means that they are Muslims. Muslims who love each other, all our citizens we are living in this country enjoying freedom altogether as brothers. Our Kurdish brothers were under severe pressure. That is why there might have been hatred nurtured in some of them. Some of them are under the influence of communist propaganda. And some of them have become the weasels of the PKK. And through the use of ideas, it is possible to bring them to heel as well. It is possible to bring them to the right path through the use of ideas, science, culture, art, love and compassion. It wouldn't be possible any other way. Muslims have only one topic and that is the Union of Islam. Consequently there is no problem to be called the Kurdish Problem. The Baas regime has crushed our Kurdish brothers, the alleged Ergenekon terror organization crushed them, Saddam has crushed them in Iraq. Allah is saving them. They will all live in peace in the compassionate, loving climate of Turkey. All the Kurds, those living in Syria, those in Iraq, those in Iran, they are all our brothers, they are all very dear to us. They will live their lives in festiveness in the vastness of this geography, away from that violence, away from that oppression. They are not comfortable in Iran either, they are under oppression in Iran as well. But they will be at ease everywhere insha'Allah.
"Master, it appears as if the reason why the Turkish Islamic Union is being misunderstood by some circles is that they imagine it as union formed solely by the Turkish and Islamic countries.  Since that term was used by various circles before, they think that it is a marginal expression. Master, in order to prevent this misconception, do you think it would be okay if we use the term Islamic Union under the leadership of Turkey?" No, there is no need for that.  When you talk about the Turkish Islamic Union, you would have to make an explanation even if you refer to it as a Union under the leadership of Turkey or as Turkish Islamic Union or even if you refer to it as the Unity of Islam. It is enough to explain the true nature of such a union. That is because the Turkic states form the greatest part of this geography and the most crowded population. It is going to be a union under the leadership of Turkey but with the support of the Turkic states it would be a movement pioneered by a nation. It is a movement with their servitude. That has been mentioned in the hadiths as well. There is nothing surprising about this.

Our Prophet (saas) has stepped out of time and saw Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh)

ADNAN OKTAR: Because there is no time in the Sight of Allah, because there is only one single moment, occasionally our Prophet (saas) was shown around in time, in a realm of dreams, by Allah. I mean it is a state in between sleep and wakefulness. He is taken out of time in a state in between sleep and wakefulness, he sees the Mahdi (pbuh), he comes to the time of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). That is because it is a fact that Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is carrying out his activities at this very moment, our Prophet (saas) is also talking with his Companions at this very moment and the Prophet Moses (pbuh) is passing through the sea at this moment together with his disciples, the Prophet Abraham (pbuh) is eating with his guests at this very moment, grilling that calf, the Prophet Adam (pbuh) has just now descended from the Paradise. As you know he [the Prophet Adam (pbuh)] feels so ashamed when he realizes the situation. That is because there is only one time, in the Sight of Allah there is only one single moment. If there is only one single moment, you may wander about within this time by the Will of Allah. If Allah wills so you may wander about in time and it is possible to see all of them.

ADNAN OKTAR: "He will find the treasuries of Bayt Al-Muqaddas, the Ark of Covenant.."  so he will find the Ark of Covenant, the Holy Ark. ".. the dining table of the People of Israel. He will find the ore of the tablets." So he finds the original tablets of the Torah. And when the original tablets of the Torah are found, the majority of the Jews will become Muslims. He will find the original Torah, the original tablets of the Torah revealed to the Prophet Moses (pbuh). It is natural that those tablets remained as Allah specifically had them carved on stone tablets. Why is stone used? It is used to preserve, so that they can remain intact, insha'Allah. "He will find the robe of the Prophet Adam (pbuh)" Who knows how old it is, see that it remained intact as well, the robe of the Prophet Adam (pbuh). ".. the parts of the pulpit of the Prophet Solomon (pbuh) and his staff.." As you know the staff has fallen to pieces, so the parts of that staff will be found. ".. and the spotlessly white and clean gloves sent to the Children of Israel by Allah."  That is a whole other issue. That is not something known. As you know the white gloves are sacred in freemasonry. All freemasons wear white gloves, insha'Allah.

DIDEM URER: Master, Mrs. Emine Erdogan, the wife of our Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan has brought humanitarian help to the Arakan region along with [our Foreign Affairs Minister] Mr. Davutoglu. They were welcomed there by the Muslims in tears. Our Muslim brothers and sisters there, saying; "Turks came, they are going to save us," told them that they were in extreme poverty and that many of them were martyred. Mr.Davutoglu embraced the people of Arakan and listened to their problems in length. Furthermore Mr. Davutoğlu visited the Buddhist camps as well and stated that both Buddhism and Islam demand peace.
Master, as an additional note, it is being claimed that after the visit of our Prime Minister's spouse Mrs. Emine Erdoğan and Mr. Davutoğlu is announced, the massacres carried out in Burma have increased even further. American The Salem News daily published a letter of the activists of Burma and stated that the Buddhists who heard the visit of the Turkish delegation went to the houses of those who cheer over this news and set many of them on fire.    
ADNAN OKTAR: Allah, such a rampant behavior is not typical for Buddhists. Those people -Allah knows the truth- should be irreligious. Buddhists would not do such things. In general Buddhists are very docile and introverted people. There should be something abnormal there. It means that they too have a deep state organization there. It means that there is a reign of a mafia inside the state. So the precautions should be taken against that. Or else it would not be right to attribute this to the Buddhists. Buddhists in general are very passive people, they do not have such rampart, aggressive manners, that has never been seen in the history either. Yet, it seems that the deep state structuring is ruining there as well. It means that a gang has possessed the command there.

The Christian belief that their sins can be redeemed through the blood of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) is a huge error

The Christian belief that their sins can be redeemed through the blood of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) is a huge error
The belief that the Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) died in order to expiate the sins of all Christians and that death lies at the remission of sins is a very mistaken belief. In order to see the error in this belief, our Christian brothers need to reconsider Allah’s justice and the purpose behind creation by using their minds and consciences, and to bear in mind the following points:
* The idea that people are born in a state of sin is a violation of Allah’s infinite justice:

42-18514422Everyone comes to this world to be tested. A person has a responsibility to spend every rational second serving Allah and living for His approval in the very limited amount of time bestowed on him. Allah says in one verse of the Qur’an:

He Who created death and life to test which of you is best in action. He is the Almighty, the Ever-Forgiving. (Surat al-Mulk, 2)

Therefore, a person whom Allah created from nothing is tested from the moment he enters this world and will be held to account for all he does in it. People’s sin or merit is based on the sincere actions they perform in this world. It is impossible, under the law of Allah, for a baby, unaware even of its own existence and who has not begun to be tested and who has only just opened his eyes on the world, to be in a state of sin.

* It is a violation of the infinite justice of Allah for a person to assume the sins of another and to suffer for them:

It is impossible in the system of testing created by Allah for anyone to redeem the sins of anyone else, even if that person is the Prophet Jesus (pbuh). Everyone who exists or has ever existed in the world IS RESPONSIBLE ONLY FOR HIMSELF. Neither his parents nor his relatives nor the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) CAN ASSUME responsibility for his sins. NOBODY WILL BE HELD RESPONSIBLE for the deeds of anyone else. NOBODY CAN REDEEM ANYONE ELSE. When the moment of death comes everyone, Christians included, WILL GIVE ACCOUNT, ALL ALONE and in the Presence of Allah, for what they did in this world. Allah has revealed this in the Qur’an:

There is no one in the heavens and earth who will not come to the All-Merciful as a slave. He has counted them and numbered them precisely. Each of them will come to Him on the Day of Rising all alone. (Surah Maryam, 93-95)

Almighty Allah has also revealed in the Qur’an that nobody will be able to assume the sins of another:

Say: ‘Am I to desire other than Allah as Lord when He is the Lord of all things?’ What each self earns is for itself alone. No burden-bearer can bear another’s burden. Then you will return to your Lord, and He will inform you regarding the things about which you differed.(Surat al-An’am, 164)

...That no burden-bearer can bear another’s burden; that man will have nothing but what he strives for; that his striving will most certainly be seen; that he will then receive repayment of the fullest kind... (Surat al-Najm, 38-41)

The Prophet Jesus (pbuh) is Allah’s beloved servant and prophet. It is a terrible violation of good conscience to maintain that Allah took the soul of a holy servant beloved of Him because of the irresponsible behavior, sins and excesses of those who came after him; it is a failure to properly appreciate Allah. It is a matter of great urgency for our sincere Christian brothers to realize the major error here.

The Prophet Jesus (pbuh) did not die and was not killed, Allah thwarted the plots of the deniers and took the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) alive into His Presence.

Mr. Adnan Oktar’s interview on Gaziantep Olay and Çay TV on 14 September, 2010


* The Prophet Jesus (pbuh) did not die:

Another important point that completely rebuffs the idea in question is the fact that the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) did not die. The Prophet Jesus (pbuh) was raised into the Presence of Allah. He is alive in body and spirit and was protected and taken into the sky in a state of sleep. By itself this fact totally rebuffs the claim that ‘The Prophet Jesus (pbuh) died as a redeemer of sins.” For some mindsets, that see no other solution than the death of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) for the redemption of their own sins, and that maintain that his death prevented all of mankind from perishing, the fact that the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) is still alive no doubt comes as a great shock. But this is a definite fact. Those who fail to properly avoid sin by imagining that the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will redeem their sins, who are flexible when it comes to what Allah has made unlawful or who do not regard abiding by the obligations imposed by the religion of which they are a member as a matter of all that much importance are making a grave error. Like everyone else, their every deed is written down. And everything they do will be held before them in the hereafter.

* The idea of a divinity that seeks death because of others’ sins (surely Allah is beyond that) is a failure to properly appreciate Allah:
It is Almighty Allah Who creates people in this world, determines a destiny for them and also creates the environment of the test. Of course, Allah is He Who best knows His servants. He has created events and instruments by which they will be tested in this world.
Human beings, on the other hand, are created weak and ignorant. They can easily fall into error, make mistakes, forget the truth despite knowing it very well or unwittingly make a mistake despite having a great fear of Allah. Because people are tested in this world. Learning from their mistakes, seeing their weakness, repenting their sins and intending never to repeat them are means whereby a person of good conscience draws closer to Allah.

This is part of the environment of the test our Lord creates in this world. In creating such a system in the world, Almighty Allah tells His servants that He is the “Ever-Pardoning, Ever-Forgiving” and opens the doors of repentance to them. Allah is the most merciful of the merciful. He forgives and pardons. When a person makes a mistake, deliberately or otherwise, when he commits a sin, great or small, he has the privilege of repenting to Allah and begging His forgiveness. Because, as revealed in the Qur’an, Allah is the "Ever-Pardoning, Ever-Forgiving.” (Surat al-Mujadala, 2)

To claim that death is the reward for all sin is to fail to grasp and appreciate Allah's attribute of being very forgiving and accepting repentance. This claim is in total conflict with the purpose of human beings’ existence in this world. Such a claim is also a violation of Allah’s justice as manifested in the test. If death were the reward for everyone’s sins, and if Almighty Allah did not forgive people out of His own goodness, then Allah reveals that the whole world would be devastated:

If Allah were to punish people for their wrong actions, not a single creature would be left upon the earth, but He defers them till a predetermined time. When their specified time arrives, they cannot delay it for a single hour nor can they bring it forward. (Surat an-Nahl, 61)

Allah also reveals in the Qur’an that human beings have been given great favor because of His sublime mercy and acceptance of repentance:

Were it not for Allah's favour to you and His mercy . . . and that Allah is Ever-Returning, All-Wise. (Surat an-Nur, 10)

Were it not for Allah’s favour to you and His mercy . . . and that Allah is All-Gentle, Most Merciful. (Surat an-Nur, 20)

The fact that Allah accepts repentance, forgives sinners is also revealed in the Gospels. Therefore, it is of the greatest importance for our Christian brothers to consider these true and accurate provisions in the Gospels:

... With the riches of God's grace that He lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding. (Ephesians, 1:7-8)

When they heard this, they had no further objections and praised God, saying, "So then, God has granted even the Gentiles repentance unto life." (Acts, 11:18)

For He [God]  has rescued us from the dominion of darkness... we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. (Colossians, 1:13-14)

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. (1 John, 1:9)
And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. (James, 5:15)

Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For if You forgive men when they sin against You, God will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Lord will not forgive your sins. (Matthew, 6:12-15)

He [Jesus] said to them, "When you pray, say: "God, hallowed be Your name... Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into temptation." (Luke, 11:2-4)

Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. (Luke, 6:37-38)

Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord... (Acts, 3:19-20)

Repent of this wickedness and pray to the Lord. Perhaps He will forgive you for having such a thought in your heart. (Acts, 8:22)
To claim that death is the reward for all sins, and that this is His law, when Allah bestows the blessing of forgiveness on us, opens the doors of repentance and reveals that He is forgiving and loving is to assume a most grave responsibility. In addition, this completely violates Allah’s title of the forgiver, He who accepts repentance, in the Gospels. It is very important for our genuine Christian brothers to reflect on why this belief has been added onto Christianity and to make the appropriate decision by the use of their consciences.

* It is definitely inconsistent for Christianity to claim to be a religion of love and also to espouse the idea that sin is cleansed with death:

All Christians maintain that Christianity is a religion of love and act in the name of love. It is of course true that Christianity is a true religion sent down by Allah, and that applies to all the other divine faiths. Almighty Allah wants love from His servants, and true love is only possible through genuinely loving Allah – scrupulously abiding by all our Lord’s commandments and prohibitions.

But this fact conflicts with the belief held by some Christians that death redeems sins. Allah is He Who loves His servants and wants to forgive them. Allah reveals in the Qur’an that:

He is the Ever-Forgiving, the All-Loving, (Surat al-Buruj, 14)

Allah desires to turn towards you, but those who pursue their lower appetites desire to make you deviate completely. (Surat an-Nisa’, 27)


The fact that our Lord is loving and forgiving is revealed as follows in the Gospels:
... The Lord is full of compassion and mercy. (James, 5:11)

But because of His great love for us, God, Who is rich in mercy, made us alive—it is by grace you have been saved. (Ephesians, 2:4-5)

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. (Romans, 8:28)

But when the kindness and love of God appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy. (Titus, 3:4-5)

Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. (1 John, 4:11)
It is very important that Christians should fully understand these sublime attributes of Almighty Allah, Who loves His servants, protects and watches over them, feels affection for them and forgives and pardons them. Only people who can properly comprehend the titles of Allah can see what a grave danger the error in the people they are dealing with poses.

* All Christians are responsible for their every deed, at every moment of their lives, and they will all be called to account in the Presence of Allah:

Like everyone who has ever lived, is living now or will ever live in the future, Christians will also be called to account for their actions. None of their sins have been redeemed. Just like everyone else, all Christians are responsible individually for their actions and will be rewarded for all their sins and good deeds on the Day of Reckoning. Nobody will be able to say, in the Presence of Allah, “my sins have been paid for already, and have been cleaned by the blood of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh).” Nobody in the Presence of Allah will be able to claim he is free of sin, and nobody will achieve salvation by saying, “I had faith.” On the Day of Reckoning, a book in which all his deeds are written will be placed before every individual, and all he did will be laid open.

No matter how much some Christians think that their sins have already been expiated, and no matter how much they seek to avoid their responsibilities before Allah, they will be unable to avoid the Day of Reckoning. This false belief they espoused in this world is invalid in the Sight of Allah. It is therefore of the greatest importance for devout Christians to be warned on this subject and see the truth. This is essential for their happiness and position in the hereafter.

The Persecution in Burma Stems, Not from Buddhists, but from the Darwinist Mindset

The Persecution in Burma Stems, Not from Buddhists, but from the Darwinist Mindset

The struggle between believers and non-believers has persisted throughout the course of history. All the conflict and ideological differences in the world are based on the intellectual and ideological struggle between these two poles. Those who espouse the true religion and say, “Allah is One,” and who seek to install the fine moral values brought with them by the true faiths have always been faced by a diametrically opposed force. If there is violence and savagery somewhere this comes from these anti-forces’ intolerance of the supporters of the true faith. However, there is one very important detail that needs to be noted here.
Depicting believers as in favor of violence is a cunning ploy
These forces of opposition sometimes appear in the guise of adherents of a religion. But this is a deception. No adherent of a true faith can ever support savagery and barbarity. If someone spreads savagery, hates everything or carries out terrorist actions and killings, then he is literally irreligious. The fact it says he is Muslim, Christian or Jewish on his ID papers does not mean he is at all religious. One therefore needs to analyze events from that perspective when there is oppression, disorder or terror. Certain cunning forces are trying to have all conflicts, sufferings and acts of terror laid at the door of believers. In particular, by using certain parts of the press and various publications they spread scenarios intended to incite conflict between Muslims and Christians, Shiites and Sunnis or Jews and Muslims. The aim here is to prevent unity and union among those who believe in Allah. The forces in question are well aware that if believers are united then they will represent a major force against all false ideologies and cannot be defeated. Since they regard that union as a threat they have developed these policies of artificial hatred in order to eliminate any alliance among believers.
While believers fight among themselves, proponents of the Darwinist, communist and Marxist mindset continue to support one another, grow stronger and find the ideal environment for spreading their own perverse ideologies. The forces in question use this method in some Arab countries, the Middle East and places such as Burma.
Darwinist ideology is the cause of the instances of oppression in the world
There are countries all over the world where Muslims are a minority. Millions of Muslims are living under pressure in minorities in Burma, the Philippines, Cambodia and Thailand, and these conflicts are generally fed by strife or differences of opinion among believers.
The conflict in Syria is portrayed as one between Shiites and Sunnis, and the press always reflects that idea. But this is a deception. There is actually a struggle going on in Syria between God-fearing people and Darwinists and communists. The events taking place in Syria are a rebellion against socialist, communist ideology that has been around since the time of Hafez Assad and has never ceased to exist.
In the same way, the terrifying persecution that has been going on in Burma since the 1990s is depicted as an assault by Buddhists on Muslims. But the people perpetrating the attack there are actually part of the junta that espouses Darwinist ideology, even if they appear to be Buddhists. (Today Buddhism is a pagan religion but it is probably a corrupted form of a true faith. There is no aggression or oppression in the teachings of Buddhism that have been left over from the true faith.) It is impossible for people who resort to violence to come out for religion. If they do this in the name of religion, then they are either deceiving people, or else know nothing about religion, or else are themselves deceived. No religion permits persecution, killing, terror or genocide. No true believer can persecute anyone else, be a terrorist, or deprive others of their rights. Religion brings with it love, affection and solidarity. Advocates of true religion have always brought love to the world.
But Darwinist ideology and ideologies based on it, such as Marxism, Leninism, communism and fascism, oppress others, terrorize communities, commit terrorist actions, engage in genocide, perpetrate mass slaughter and mercilessly kill women and children, young and old. If there is terror or strife somewhere, then the presence of such perverse ideologies in the region can immediately be seen. Communist ideology that espouses the dialectics of society by adopting Darwinist ideology, which espouses the dialectics of nature, makes a precondition out of conflict. It irrationally maintains that there can be no progress without conflict. It is these perverse ideologies that poison societies with hatred.
Let us unite in order to put an end to the oppression stemming from the corruption of Darwinism
If we want an end to the strife on Earth, the sole precondition is the scientific elimination of Darwinism, the intellectual idea behind these perverse ideologies. And the way to intellectually eradicate Darwinism is to discuss and show the scientific proofs revealing the invalidity of the theory of evolution everywhere possible. Activities such as handing out books, opening exhibitions, writing articles, opening web sites, holding conferences and radio and television programs are highly important in terms of giving people this information. Indeed, the positive effects of such activities are already spreading very rapidly and people have begun to accept the fact that evolution is the worst scientific fraud of all time.
To issue one final reminder, the whole Islamic world has a responsibility to ensure that all mankind achieves peace and security. The Islamic world has an obligation to be united in order to rescue those people living in pain and suffering in East Turkestan, Burma, Pathani, Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine and many other places, and to bring about a permanent solution. A Turkish-Islamic world that is united and acts as brothers in a spirit of solidarity will never face any such problems. It will guarantee that not just Muslims, but also Christians, Jews, Buddhists and even the irreligious and atheist can live in security, wealth, peace and joy.

Russia - 15 February 2012 - Mr. Adnan Oktar's responses to questions from Akram Murtazeyev, Honorary broadcasting manager of the WordYou.ru web site (he is also the founder of Novoya Gazeta and holder of the ''Russian Golden Pen'' award), and Liliya Muhammedyarova, broadcasting manager

Russia - 15 February 2012 - Mr. Adnan Oktar's responses to questions from Akram Murtazeyev, Honorary broadcasting manager of the WordYou.ru web site (he is also the founder of Novoya Gazeta and holder of the ''Russian Golden Pen'' award), and Liliya Muhammedyarova, broadcasting manager

QUESTION: Turkey is today heading toward the leadership of the whole Islamic world. Arab countries are one after the other adopting the Turkish state as a model. What do you think of Ankara’s increasing strength and role in the political arena, and how do you think it will use that strength?
ADNAN OKTAR: Yes, Turkey is rapidly heading toward leadership of the Islamic world. We will soon all see this come about together, insha’Allah. And it is quite normal that this should be so, because Turkey is the foremost country among those with Muslim populations that has the best conception of Islam but that also adopts and applies secularism in the finest way. Turkey is also a guide to Islamic countries against extremism and backwardness and in favor of love and friendship. Islamic countries are all taking Turkey as a model, because they trust our nation’s honesty, justice, altruism, rationality and religious devotion. They all know that Turkey is the only country that can establish a climate of peace and security through love and affection.
Our Prophet (saas) also refers to the Turks in the hadiths, saying several times that the Turks will be leaders. The hadiths in question clearly show that out Prophet (saas) entrusts the Islamic world to the Turks. In one hadith our Prophet (saas) says, “Red banners will appear first” – Turkish flags – “and will then unite with green banners.” In other words, the Turkic republics and Arab countries will unite and establish a Turkish-Islamic Union, insha’Allah, even embracing many non-Muslim countries with love and affection. All the developments going on today confirm these hadiths of our Prophet’s (saas).
Because of its geographical and strategic position, and its historic legacy from the Ottoman Empire, Turkey is the ideal future leader of the Balkans, the Caucasus, the Middle East and Central Asia. It has a wealth of historic experience and a great influence. Turkey is the most influential country in the region, with broad territories hosting ethnic groups from different cultures and ethnic origins. Turkey has recently behaved in such a way to show it is aware of this great responsibility. It knows it has to assume the role of leader of the whole Islamic world as its elder brother, and is taking correct and accurate steps in that direction. But it is also important to state that Turkish leadership is not intended to dominate or rule other countries. On the contrary, it is a conception of leadership based on service and endures hardship. Our ideal is for a powerful collaboration in the economy, defense and science, but a Turkish-Islamic Union in which all states will maintain their own regimes and identities just as they are. In other words, this will be a union of hearts and love. It will benefit not just Muslims, but people of all origins and beliefs, and even irreligious people and atheists, and will treat them all as first-class citizens.
It also needs to be known that a great union under Turkish leadership, Turkish-Islamic Union in other words, is ordained in destiny and will definitely come about. Every detail of the End Times we are living in, everything that happens, is written in destiny. I believe that Turkish-Islamic Union under Turkish leadership will soon be established as a result of intensive efforts by Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and his helpers so that the moral values of Islam can rule the world and make the world a place of peace.
QUESTION: Turkey has been trying for years to join the EU, but has never managed it. Why do you think that is? Why do some European countries not want to see Turkey among them? This European obstinacy is becoming ludicrous. Greece, on the brink of economic bankruptcy for years, joined the EU with no problem. But they keep Turkey, which could bring stability and growth to Europe, waiting. Why do you think the EU does not want Turkey? What is the role of the religious factor in this?
ADNAN OKTAR: To tell the truth, it is definitely for the best that Turkey has not been able to join the EU. Everything is for the best and is created with wisdom. So this is also definitely all for the best and contains secret wisdom. We are living in a very important time; when Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) are on Earth and waging an intellectual struggle to bring peace and security to the world. It is obvious that the events taking place when these two blessed individuals are in the world will be created by Allah to contain great wisdom.
There are good aspects to the EU. Their conception of democracy is excellent, for instance. It is important for Turkey to take on board this EU conception of democracy and apply it across the country.
But the EU appears to be heading for collapse, and it seems unlikely to be able to shake off this crisis at any time in the near future. But Turkish-Islamic Union could save Europe from this predicament. When Turkey joins the EU as the leader of the Turkish-Islamic Union, Europeans will then be able to breathe a sigh of relief, and will enjoy security and well-being. In that sense, Turkey does not need the EU, but the EU needs Turkey.
QUESTION: The Western world currently controls all the media. Only the Al-Jazeera News Agency is trying to hold out against the West. Does Turkey have the weight to change this important market that forms public opinion?
ADNAN OKTAR: The truth of the matter is that most of the world press is under the control of atheist freemasons. Since they hold various major media organizations in their hands, they have established a false global control. For example, it is those same circles that are imposing the theory of evolution that has inflicted destruction, pain and suffering on the world, even though they know there is no scientific evidence for it. Stories favoring evolution are carried all over the world, and they are trying to prop the theory up even though they know it is totally invalid. But these stratagems have all been exposed now. By means of me and my colleagues’ activities, they have been unable to find the courage to spread any more reports intended to deceive people.
QUESTION: The most important issue on the agenda today is Syria. Everyone saw the situation in Syria many years ago but nobody was brave enough to state it. This is now the turning point. The worst problem is that the UN has been unable to resolve political and ethnic problems in the world. Do you think we need a new organization, mechanism or body to resolve ethnic issues and international and domestic problems?
Do you think that the countries on the UN Security Council are using their vetoes for commercial or political ends? Vetoes are no longer being used to provide security for people and ensure their right to life. This makes UN Security Council decisions nonsensical. What do you think?
ADNAN OKTAR: Our Prophet (saas) foretold the latest events in the Arab world and Syria 1,400 years beforehand, citing these as signs of the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). Our Prophet (saas) reveals in the hadiths that cruel despots will first rule for many years in Arab countries, and that these will then be overthrown. Our Prophet (saas) even reveals locations. "Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will not appear until as village known as Haresta in the land of Syria is destroyed.” A report came out just the other day. Haresta in Syria, as you know, often appears in reports as the scene of intense fighting. Hundreds of other such hadiths have all come true, word for word. People who examine the hadiths can see for themselves how the portents of the way of the Mahdi have been coming true one after the other over the last 30 years. You can see the signs of the way of the Mahdi in question on www.hazretimehdi.com/signs/signs_index.html.
Sad to say, the events of the Arab Spring will not come to an end until the Muslims of the world unite and Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) appears. All these sufferings will continue until Muslims unite under a spiritual leader, Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and until Turkish-Islamic Union is established, because it is a sin for Muslims to be fragmented and disunited. Islamic Union is the greatest religious obligation of the age. It is incompatible with the Qur’an to expect salvation without complying with that obligation.
The UN is not as strong as people imagine. The one and only solution to this is Islamic Union. Everyone knows there will be no such problems when we have Islamic Union. All problems will be comprehensively resolved. Muslims must therefore advocate Turkish-Islamic Union with passion and fervor. Every Muslim who does not advocate Islamic Union has a spiritual responsibility for these bloody events. Muslims protecting and watching out for one another is the same obligation as establishing Turkish-Islamic Union, an obligation that must be fulfilled at once.
QUESTION: Is it not strange that the countries with the right of veto on the UN Security Council are also the world’s major suppliers of arms?
ADNAN OKTAR: Some countries earn vast revenues from provoking conflict and thus trading in arms. The way the arms trade is not regulated both provokes conflicts and leads to endless cruelty, killing and slaughter. But there is one thing they forget; the moral values of Islam will soon reign across the whole world. With beauty, love, peace and brotherhood. We are living in the age of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). We will soon see the Golden Age, awaited for many centuries. Plenty, abundance, goodness and beauty will enfold the world. All arms will disappear and be destroyed. Bloodshed will end. The armaments industry will cease to exist. Peace and security will come to the world. Everyone will embrace everyone else as friends and brothers. Peace will spread across the world. People will smile for the first time. “How lovely Islam and being a Muslim are,” they will say.
QUESTION: Africa is one of the hottest regions of the world. The UN headquarters is in the other side of the world, in America. Do you not think a change of location would make the decision-making process and protecting people’s lives more efficient? Has not the time come for the UN to move to Africa?
ADNAN OKTAR: As I have already said, the UN has a minimal impact, not like people imagine. Not much will change if it relocates to Africa. It is Islamic moral values, Turkish-Islamic Union, not the UN, that will bring peace, security and wealth to the world. Under Turkish-Islamic Union, countries will benefit from one another’s experience and the spheres of investment set up will become new sources of revenue for all countries’ economies. One country’s different geographic and economic conditions will turn into wealth for another, and plenty and abundance will increase to an extraordinary extent. North African countries, the Caucasus and the countries of Central Asia all possess rich resources. The majority of Islamic countries have valuable mineral resources. Just for these to be united and for a moral conception that fears Allah and has a good conscience to settle into people’s hearts will bring about a glorious wealth, of a kind that has never been seen before. What we want is for African cities to be like London or Paris, at least. There will be no more problems of want and poverty in a world in which Islamic moral values prevail. Insha’Allah, we will soon see that what I am saying is true. When we come to this time known as the Golden Age you will see a great plenty and abundance in goods and products. There will be a hitherto unknown wealth, and the years of high costs of living, difficulties in making ends meet, hunger, poverty and want will come to an end. Nobody will be needy any more. People will be given many times more than what they ask for, and what is given will not even be counted. All kinds of psychological and material means will be used for people’s comfort, peace and happiness, and there will be not the slightest difficulty, poverty or hunger.
QUESTION: Iranian mercenaries are fighting for Assad, while Moscow and Beijing defend Assad’s rights at the UN. Why do you think a dictator who is slaughtering his own people has so many allies and protectors?
ADNAN OKTAR: There is a communist secret state in charge in Syria, Ba'athist thinking. This is a system of communist and Stalinist thinking that hates the people and despises them and regards them as less than human; that is what is in charge. These people detest Muslims. They do all in their power to oppress and persecute Muslims and inflict suffering on them. Some people who are unaware of this aspect way unknowingly support them, but by doing that they are in fact supporting bloodthirsty, ruthless, sadistic and psychopathic people. They may be doing this out of self-interest. But the only system in which can truly help them is Turkish-Islamic Union. Turkish-Islamic Union is the only system that will bring true peace, happiness and enlightenment to Syria, Iran, Russia, China, Israel, Armenia, Europe and everywhere in the world. A system that favors everyone. That is why every clear-thinking person, Muslim or not, must genuinely desire Turkish-Islamic Union because Turkish-Islamic Union is the only system that can save everyone and the whole world.
QUESTION: The tensions between Sunnis and Shiites that have been on the rise in recent times are no longer limited to the Islamic world, but have become a serious problem for the whole world. What steps is Turkey thinking of taking for the resolution of this problem? How ready are the sides, Sunnis and Shiites, to compromise and listen to one another?
ADNAN OKTAR: The problem can only be resolved with the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and the establishment of Turkish-Islamic Union. No other measure can bring with it a solution. Disagreements and enmity based on sectarian differences among Muslims are in direct contravention of the Qur’an and the moral virtues commanded by Islam. Wahhabis, Shiism, Sunnism – these are all brother sects. One important thing that Muslims must not forget is that all those who say, "La ilaha illaAllah Muhammadan Rasulullah (‘There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is His last Messenger’)" are brothers. The Islamic world has no spiritual leader today, for which reason rivers of Muslim blood are being spilled. It is clear that at such a time, what is needed is brotherhood, union and unity with no room for conflicts, divisions or enmities. Alawites, Sunnis, Shiites, Wahhabis and Jaferis must all embrace one another as Muslim brothers, without distinction, and live together in a climate of love and peace. It is a sin to encourage rancor among Muslims and to set brother against brother. It is a sin for Muslims who share the same Allah, Book and Prophet to be at one another’s throats. Those who do this are committing a terrible sin. Shiites, Jaferis, Wahhabis ... all Muslims are brothers, no matter what their schools. A Wahhabi Muslim must strive to ensure that his Sunni brother is happy and at ease. Shiites must be able to live in peace under a Sunni administration. If they cannot, then that is a sign that there is something missing from the moral values of the Qur’an and the Sunnah of our Prophet (saas) in that society. Because under Islamic moral values, someone charged with the administration is there in order to serve for Allah’s approval and has a responsibility to ensure that all people, no matter what their sect, religion or race, is treated as a first-class citizen.
QUESTION: How do you look at the banning of books by certain Turkish Islamic scholars in Russia? For example, when the Christian government in Russia wanted to ban the Mahabharata there was an immediate reaction to prevent it. Will Turkey take any steps to lift the ban on books by its own Islamic scholars?
ADNAN OKTAR: We love the Russians. They are a pure and immaculate nation. We want Russia to be strong and for every state and nation to live at ease. That is what the moral values of the Qur’an command. My books are all freely on sale in Russia. The Russian state openly supports the sale of my books; they have told me that officially. “We are delighted at the sale of your books. We are pleased by the spread of your ideas,” they said. In my opinion, these bans stem from ignorance and misinterpretation on the part of certain people. The followers of the Risale-i-Nur, for instance, are immaculate Muslims – they advocate moderation, love and democracy, and they respect the state. The Russian state may not be properly acquainted with them. All our Muslim brothers in Russia must express their love for Russia and the Russian nation in a better fashion. They must emphasize that they want Russia to be strong, and that this would make them happy. I do not think there will be a problem so long as they emphasize this properly, insha’Allah.

Spiders' fishing techniques

Spiders' fishing techniques

Some spiders hunt in even the most unexpected environments. For example, the hunting field of the water-spider Dolomedes is the surface of water. This spider is mostly to be found in shallow places such as marshes and ditches.

The water-spider, which lacks good eyesight, spends most of its time by the side of the water spinning threads and spreading them over its surroundings. These serve two functions at the same time: they are a kind of warning to other spiders, setting the limits of its own territory, and they also form an escape route in the event of unexpected danger.

The spider's most frequently used hunting method is to put four of its legs on the water while the other four hold on to dry land. While doing this, it employs a most clever technique to avoid sinking. The spider covers those of its legs which will go into the water with a water-proof coating by passing them through its fangs. It then approaches the edge of the water. Pushing its body down with great care, it moves on to the surface of the water. It places its fangs and feelers under the water in such a way as not to disturb the surface. It waits for a living creature to approach, with its eyes looking around it and its legs feeling for vibrations in the water. To feed itself, the spider needs to find prey at least the size of the "Golyan" fish.

When the spider is hunting, it stays motionless until the fish comes within 1.5 centimeters of its jaws. Then it suddenly enters the water, catches the fish in its legs, and bites it with its venomous fangs. Then, in order to stop the fish, which is much bigger than it, from dragging it under the water, it immediately turns upside down. The venom quickly takes effect. It not only kills the prey, but also dissolves the prey's internal organs, turning them into a kind of soup and making them easy to digest. When the prey is dead, the spider drags it on to the shore and feeds. (Science and Technology Gorsel Science and Technology Encyclopedia, p. 494, 495)

At this point various questions spring to mind. How did the spider come by that wax which stops it sinking? How did it learn to coat its legs with it against the risk of sinking? How did the spider come by the wax's formula and how did it make it? The spider certainly did not bring about all of these things-each one of which bears the mark of intelligence-of its own volition. Like all other living creatures, this species of spider acts in such an intelligent way, is capable of making such a plan and putting it into practice by inspiration from God. In one of His verses, God states that He gives every creature its own provision:

There is no creature on the earth which is not dependent upon God for its provision. He knows where it lives and where it dies. They are all in a Clear Book. (Surah Hud: 6)

Anti Christ (Masih dajjaal)

Anti Christ (Masih dajjaal) by Samia Khan

The misconception on antichrist by the world of Abrahamic religions have exacerbated so much so that now the Christians in remote areas of India are wearing coffins and ready to be slayed by the Muslims. The Muslims have been degraded so much so as that they have made their own ideologies and forgotten that the last scholar from Ahle Bayt (the great Imam Mahdi) will come or has come. Muslims are occupied with 73 sects and their different ideologies, and of course they are not ready to give up on those ideologies.

The Jews are so disturbed on various Diaspora's and kept on holding on to the Myth of coming of the great Messiah, they wait but don't know when he will come to save them. The recognition of fellow humans on faith and religion has so much declined that they are unable to seek the truth and recognize the facts, mental disabilities have multiplied.

My Imaam Sayed Adnan Oktar (HARUN YAHYA) clearly shows us the true path when he says that Antichrist or the Messiah Dajjal (as described in hadith) has the ability to hypnotize the masses and create the mental illusion.

In the end times only Imam Mahdi has the position to guide and educate people on this topic .This brute force will make people miserable in end times and they will be saved by Jesus Christ, when he will demolish the system of Messiah Dajjal. It’s a brute force that will affect all the humanity in world, for masses he will be a killing machine and for thought process he will create irreligious society and materialism which encourages diaspora and massacres among societies.

The system of Dajaal under Zionists exacerbated in 20th century and will end in the beginning of 21st century. All through the 20th century we can observe the Messiah Dajjal at work and every one getting hurt in due process. Even Mahdi and Isa has been the target as antichrist has forces under him belonging to humans and jinns who have been active in their work hurting the men of God and innocent masses. In the process blamed each other for the terrorism and in retaliation inflicted hatred in societies and communities

UNDER THE LIGHT OF RISALE-I NUR, BEDIUZZAMAN NURSI


Hadith and Bediuzzaman Nursi says that Jesus Christ will slay the Antichrist, now this was said in a figurative sense. But the Christians misunderstood, if we take it literally it makes sense as if the Christians are the Antichrist and Jesus is also the Antichrist. But actually it means that on the return of Jesus and under his leadership he will finish the satanic ways of Antichrist. Sayed Adnan elaborates that it is actually false and superficial way of materialism that will be destroyed.

Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live conversation on A9 TV dated July 26Th, 2012

ADNAN OKTAR: Joel must listen to this. Joel dishonestly says that we have declared Christians to be the Antichrist. For one thing, I espouse the way of the Mahdi.

I am someone who completely goes along with the hadiths of the Messenger of Allah. I act in the light of the Prophet (saas) and the language of Bediuzzaman and what they say. So what he says is completely wrong right from the outset. Look, Bediuzzaman says; "the individual Antichrist that will be killed by the sword of the individual Jesus (pbuh)." The Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will kill the system of the Antichrist, he says. In other words, Christians are the Anti-Antichrist. How can they be the Antichrist? They are anti-Antichrist. Christians are a system that will kill the Antichrist. Look, he says, "the individual Antichrist that will be killed by the sword of the individual Jesus (pbuh)." In other words, he says that Christians will kill the Antichrist. He says they will destroy the system of the Antichrist under the leadership of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh). That is what Bediuzzaman says. So Christians opposed to the Antichrist are our allies. Christians are not the Antichrist, but the Anti-Antichrist, the exact opposite of the Antichrist. "The collective personality and the huge statue of materialism and irreligious embodied in the Antichrist," in other words, the collective personality of Darwinism and materialism, their predomination in the universities and schools of the world. "... will be destroyed," look, he says, the system of the Antichrist will be destroyed, "by the truly pious followers of Jesus (pbuh)." So how can they be the antichrist? Where did you get that idea from? What does Bediuzzaman say? He says they are the anti-antichrist. "The antichrist will be destroyed by the truly pious followers of Jesus (pbuh)," Christian priests and religious figures that is, "who will blend the essence of true Christianity with the essence of Islam," with the truths of the Qur'an, blending the truths of Christianity with the truths of the Qur'an and Islam, "and rout the antichrist with their combined strength, in effect killing him spiritually" says Bediuzzaman, in the Rays.

Look, Bediuzzaman says, "Missionaries," Christian missionaries, "and Christian spiritual leaders and the followers of the Nur (Light) must be on the alert. Because the northern current," the Leftist, communist current in other words, "in the face of the attack of Islam and Christianity," in other words, in order to defend itself from the attack of Muslims and Christians who form an alliance, "the antichrist will seek to damage the alliance between Islam and the missionaries in order to protect itself." Be careful, he says; the antichrist will try to annihilate the alliance between Christians and Muslims. Now if Mr. Joel does that, if he tries to do that, if he tries to wreck the alliance between Christians and Muslims, who will that be helping? Let us not answer that question, but let him figure that out himself instead. He should try to strengthen the alliance, not wreck it. He is doing harm with such dishonest statements.

Look, "A zealous and self-sacrificing community known as a Christian community but worthy of being called 'Muslim Christians,' that seeks to unite the reality of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) [true Christianity] with the reality of Islam, will kill and rout that society of the antichrist under the leadership of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) [under his personal leadership], thus saving humanity from atheism." In other words, he says the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and Christian spirituals who act together with him will destroy Darwinism and materialism, but they will come by that power by uniting themselves with the truth of the Qur'an.

RISALE-I NUR BEDIUZZAMAN NURSI


The merger of Christians and Muslims will combat atheism. Bediuzzaman Said Nursi says that they will have to combat together; the aggressive atheism is actually the antichrist.

Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9 TV dated July 26th,  2012

ADNAN OKTAR: Now this Joel and.. Of course I am not referring to Joel alone but to people who think like him, as there are tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands or millions of people like Joel, who are mistaken. Look, let me explain again based on Bediuzzaman Said Nursi's opinions on the subject in order to eliminate that error. I'm continuing. "It is even recorded," says Bediuzzaman "in authentic traditions of the Prophet (saas)," in true hadiths, "that at the end of time, the truly pious among the Christians," Christians, truly devout ones as there are also dishonest and insincere religious people, "will unite with the People of the Qur'an," they will ally themselves with Muslims. What are Christians doing? They are forging an alliance with Muslims. What does alliance mean? Striving shoulder to shoulder, together as brothers and friends. Against what? Against the antichrist. Are the Christians the antichrist here, or are they opposed to the antichrist? They are opposed to the antichrist. Who are they striving against? Against the antichrist. Who? Muslims and Christians together. "... and fight their common enemy, irreligion," the antichrist that is. "And at this time, too, the people of religion," all true believers "and the people of truth," in other words including the director of religious affairs, and all true sincere Muslims seeking the truth, "need to unite sincerely not only with their fellow believers," not only with Muslims, he says, "and own brothers," uniting sincerely with one's brothers, for example with the people in the same country, and acting together, in a sincere manner. "... but also with the truly pious and spiritual ones among the Christians." Look, with the truly pious and spiritual Christians, that is Christian priests and men of religion, devout Christians. Look, I am coming to the most important point here. "... temporarily from the discussion and debate of points of difference," not debating about belief in the trinity or other matters, but regarding them as brothers just as they are, friends in the cause. "... in order to combat their joint enemy--aggressive atheism," in other words the antichrist. "They need that", says Bediuzzaman. He says that Christians and Muslims must act together. That is why those who try to set Christians and Muslims against one another are making a grave error. That is very wrong. The truth is what Bediuzzaman says, as also clearly set out in the hadiths. Because even if they believe in the trinity, they still say they believe in the One Allah. This stems from misinterpretation of the trinity. Instead of saying he [Jesus Christ] is a manifestation of Allah, they describe him as if he were God Himself, as if he were really the son of Allah. But this is really in the sense of a manifestation. If they say it in the sense of a manifestation, that puts an end to it and there is no problem.

TV A9 INTERVIEW WITH JOEL


Allied forces occupied Turkey and the Turkish Muslims rose up to defend their country. The famous war of Gallipoli, you can search on internet. It was an amazing war where the peaceful Sufi darvesh rose up to defend their homeland. 

In 20th century the killing of Turkish people, the whole belt of Turkish people divided amongst different powers suffered in the past 100 years, specially last 40 years; you can search on the internet.

There are rumors that Mahdi and Muslims will slay Jews and Christians to make them Muslims, is wrong.

Joel Richardson is gravely mistaken in showing Turkey as the antichrist - 3


Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9 TV dated July 24th, 2012 

ADNAN OKTAR: To sum up, Joel must stop thinking of the Islamic world as the antichrist. Of course there are antichrists in the Islamic world; there are antichrists among Christians, of course. But these are allied with one another. Compassionate and loving Muslims will ally themselves with Christians who believe in Allah and with affectionate, compassionate Jews who believe in Allah. And they will make the people of the world brothers and will live in peace. In other words, they will all believe in the same thing. For example, if one day the Mahdi says, may Allah forbid, and he never would say it, but let us imagine he did, "We must kill everyone," nobody would listen to him. They will listen to what is compatible with the Qur'an and the hadiths. If a Christian says let us kill everyone as they forge an alliance with the Mahdi, no Christian will listen to him. And if a Jew says let us kill all Christians and Muslims as he works together with the Mahdi, everyone will think he has gone crazy and nobody will have anything to do with him. So it is terribly wicked to declare that people who want peace are actually the antichrist. It is wrong to portray people who advocate brotherhood as the antichrist.

"If Erdogan wants war, you can be sure he is not the antichrist," he says. My brother, stop this, you are calling everyone you think of the antichrist. The Turkish nation is a very warm, reasonable and affectionate one made up of democratic and rational people. During the War of Independence, the Italians and the British and the French came and occupied us all. What was the Turkish nation meant to do? They fought a defensive war to save their lives. Who were the aggressors? Christians. And the defenders? Muslims. What were they doing? They defended the nation and themselves. What were they expected to do? Say come and crush us? They engaged in self-defense.

But of course I approach matters with affection. I have no anger or hatred. We will talk and discuss. He was rather irritable when he arrived, very tense, but I talked and calmed him down a bit. He was very, very angry toward Muslims and Islam. He was amazed when I treated him with affection, when I behaved warmly toward him. He even apologized for his clothing, and a bit for his behavior. He was very tense and irritable. (He later talked a lot about that.) Yes, he talked about it later. I appreciate that, but these theories of the antichrist and that kind of thing are very dangerous. That kind of language will endanger world peace and cause people to hate the Turkish world. You can call wicked people the antichrist, you can accuse Darwinists and materialists, communists, those among them who act wickedly and ruthlessly, terrorists who blow people up and kill, you can accuse them of being the antichrist, but it is terribly wrong to accuse a whole nation, a whole people, a whole religion. That is a great error. May Allah give him guidance.

But I will talk and explain matters. But if he is not given a reply… His books also sell in large numbers. There are Christian fanatics and neo-Nazis and the rest, and they go crazy when they read them. They go and set fire to Turkish people's homes and try and murder their children. The result is an extraordinary evil. What need is there for that? It is so wrong. Criticize bad people, draw people's attention to them. But good and sincere people regard it as a good thing to be brothers and espouse peace people to be brothers. And skepticism is very wrong; what if one day they try to kill all Christians… What kind of logic is that? It is like saying, what if the Sun splits in two one day and a rocket comes out of it, bringing spacemen with it. If the whole world has been called to peace, if Christians and Jews believe and you act together with them, then nobody will go along with the Mahdi if he appears and says, right, I am going to kill you all. What logic is that? It is of course impossible, but I am just saying so people will understand.

TV A9 INTERVIEW WITH JOEL


In this interview Sayed Adnan describes Islamic sects who are working on the path of Antichrist. 73 sects of Muslims sprang up after the Ottomen Khilafat system was demolished. All over  the world Muslims went into confusion and the war mongerers and puritanical mind set, running their own system and ideology sprung up and conformed their own thought and ways in Islamic society and culture.

Joel Richardson is gravely mistaken in showing Turkey as the antichrist - 1


Excerpt from live tv conversation of Mr. Adnan Oktar on A9 TV, 24 July 2012


They keep insisting on trying to make a antichrist out of Turkey. That is where Joel who came here is making a great mistake. He insists on portraying Turkey as the antichrist. Then he talks about love, affection and compassion. If you depict Turkey and Muslims as the antichrist, then the Christian world will want to destroy the antichrist. So you have made the slaying of the Islamic world lawful. You have made it lawful for Turkey to be brought to the ground, and you have encouraged it. What kind of love is that? He is saying, "When the Mahdi appears, if he encourages people toward peace, then he is the antichrist." Allah, Allah, my brother, you are so fixated that you declare someone who speaks of war to be the antichrist and also someone who speaks of peace to be he antichrist and also the one who is silent. So what are people to do?

I said we will build the Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem, insha'Allah. He says he antichrist will do it. Allah Allah. "So let us not do it," I said. "Since it is a portent of the system of the antichrist, of the antichrist. In that case we abandon it," I said. "No," he says, "That is not what I meant." That is exactly what you mean. If you say the antichrist will do it, then Muslims must not build the Temple of Solomon. The way of the antichrist is not the absence of a mosque. It is something very terrible indeed. If you depict Muslims as the antichrist to the entire Christian world, if you cite that as a portent of the antichrist, then Muslims will not build that mosque.

If you say the unification of Muslims is a portent of the antichrist, then we should stay divided. Is that right? He says that if he speaks of peace then he is the antichrist. Allah, Allah, what kind of fixation is this, my brother? If he protects Jews, he is the antichrist, he says. So what should we do? Should we kill Jews, innocent Jews? Should we leave everywhere covered in blood? What are we to do, I mean? Of course we must advocate peace. He says he [antichrist] will first espouse peace but then shed blood. Allah knows the unseen. If a person is virtuous at the start, he will be virtuous at the end. Is that right? There is a positive presumption. If someone teaches all people in favor of peace at first, then people will fully adopt the idea of peace. And how can you incite people to war after that? You must first tell people of peace using verses and hadiths; everyone will believe in that and arrange their lives accordingly. You will embrace Christians and Jews. And then all of a sudden the Mahdi will say 'I was wrong on that, and he will tell us to kill altogether. This is what he [Joel] is implying. That is his logic. Is that at all possible, my brother? This is diametrically opposed to the Qur'an. Such a thing is impossible. How can the Mahdi get that idea from? Based on what can he derive such a logic? And why? And who would then believe in his being the Mahdi? Who would follow him? All Muslims are affectionate and compassionate. Are there no Muslims who think like the antichrist? Yes, there are. There are the Taliban and al-Qaeda. There are many bigoted sects and groups that resemble the antichrist. What about the people who shed blood in Iraq and Afghanistan? They are also the followers of the antichrist. What are they? Angels? They are the antichrist, too. Al Qaeda blow up innocent people, the Taliban bomb places to pieces, and that is also the work of the antichrist. The Jews also have their antichrists. They go and rake youngsters in Palestine and then say 'pardon, there has been a mistake'. That is also the work of the antichrist. But what crime do innocent Jews commit? Or innocent Christians? I regard innocent evangelicals, those who are well-intentioned, with love and affection. But it is wrong and illogical to portray Turkey as the antichrist. It is cruelty. When I speak about peace, he says, "the antichrist will also be in favor of peace [first]." Allah, Allah. What can I say? Should I encourage killing and slaughter like the bigots? What should I say? Of course we must advocate peace. Once you have convinced a society in favor of peace, with verses and the Qur'an, and once the society lives accordingly, then how can you turn it back to wickedness again? I mean, if the Mahdi said, may Allah forbid, "You must all kill yourselves," should they go along with that? But the Mahdi cannot say anything so illogical. When the Mahdi uses language compatible with the Qur'an and the hadiths, people will follow him. But if you think he will do something as crazy as that, then your logic is defective. You fail to think the best. You must trust people.

The Mahdi will also act together with Jesus the Messiah. He is no someone who comes on his own. His life is transparent and bound up with Christians. They will work in alliance with Christians. Christians will be the main force, in other words. Muslims and Christians allied together. How can he destroy the people he is himself allied with? And why? This is opposed to the commandment of the Qur'an. How can you oppress the People of the Book? How can you kill and slaughter? For example my beauty here, my beloved one, she is from Serbia. Muslims were massacred in Serbia. We'll punish only those murderers, that has got nothing to do with my beauty here. My beauty is innocent, like the other Serbians that had nothing to do with it. Why would I be angry with her? But some stupid people hate all Serbians. Those people are normal, innocent people that have got nothing to do with those crimes. They hate violence, murder.

We will bring down any killer. And using the law, not through wickedness and killing.

What does Joel say? "According to the Bible, the antichrist will include present-day Islamic states." There you are. My brother, you are sowing the seeds of hatred. You are sowing the seeds of hatred in all Christians' hearts. Instead of saying that, you should say that Christians and Muslims must be brothers and serve Allah's religion together and espouse the Oneness of Allah. "Even if some Christians agree that the Roman Empire served as the system of the antichrist, these are actually Islamic states." So crush and slaughter them all. You are already engaged in slaughter of them. Is that at all logical? You should be demanding warmth and brotherhood. We believe in the same Allah. Don't we? We have the same Allah and the same prophets, and we believe in the same hereafter and the same paradise and hell. Do Muslims not have their antichrist? The bigots? Yes, there are. I have already said they do. There are al-Qaeda and the Taliban. There are unbelievably wicked people. We see them burning Muslims in Africa today.

TV A9 INTERVIEW WITH JOEL


Sayed Adnan discusses the trinity and how its figurative meaning was turned into something pagan and pre-Christianity path in Europe, created turmoil in Christian Empire, putting them into 72 sects. 

Joel Richardson is gravely mistaken in showing Turkey as the antichrist - 4


Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9 TV dated July 24th, 2012 

ADNAN OKTAR: Jerry Davis, the former priest and lawyer, responds to Joel; "In particular, it is impossible according to Biblical tradition for that people who will come from the north mentioned in Ezekiel to be the Turks. This is not open to interpretation. There is no question of the north of Jerusalem being the north. And in discussing the antichrist in Thessalonians he described how he will claim to be divine. It is impossible for a Muslim to announce his own divinity and mislead other Muslims." My brother, what Muslim will believe anyone who turns up and says that he is Allah? Is that at all possible? "And it is impossible to deceive Muslims in that sense; someone who depicts himself as a Christian might be more likely" he says. "Joel takes those parts of the Bible he wants to use," he says.

Of course I cannot say anything if he believes in the Trinity. That is a belief; but I do want him to be honest. Look, I repeat. Allah, the Holy Spirit and Jesus the Messiah – now I ask, which one of those can one pray to? Christians say to all three. What will you say if I advise you to pray to Allah? I do not, he says. So do you pray to the Holy Spirit? He says he only regards Jesus the Messiah as Allah and believes in him. And you can see the position of the Christian world as a result. In America you can count the number of young people who believe in Allah on the fingers of one hand. Christianity is increasingly collapsing and shrinking. Instead of saying that, you should say that Allah is One and that Jesus the Messiah is a prophet. Jesus the Messiah himself says that he is a servant of Allah. He prays to Allah. Jesus the Messiah never says that he is Allah. Everywhere he says that he is a servant of Allah and prays to Allah. How can Allah pray to Allah? My brother, he [Jesus Christ] sleeps and eats. Does Allah sleep and eat? He has physical needs. This is really unbelievable. It is quite astonishing. But when one asks, and there are Christian people I know and they come here and we dine together, they say we can regard Jesus the Messiah as a manifestation there, as a manifestation of Allah. All right, regard Jesus the Messiah as a manifestation of Allah. We also regard him as a manifestation of Allah. Isn't that right? The Torah refers to the children of Allah, referring to all believers, and I imagine that this belief must have come from that. I will clarify that passage later, insha'Allah.
