When the Mahdi will declare himself?
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9TV dated February 16th, 2013
A viewer’s question: ‘I am wondering when the Mahdi will declare himself, or whether he will declare himself.’ This person is really sweet.
The system of the Mahdi has been created by Allah so as to make people not able to deny. Allah creates people’s intelligence. He sends His Mahdi and makes easy for him. Allah’s system is such a one that people can’t get clear of and deny. It will be completely clear he is the Mahdi. But the Mahdi will say, “I am not the Mahdi.’ Because if he says he is, they will attack him most ferociously. Some people will want him to say that in order to attack him. The Mahdi will baffle them like that. Because he will be able to operate very freely in that way. He will make no claim, and all the signs will be manifestly upon him. That is how destiny will flow. Allah will bring about the reign of Islam, whether they are unwilling or not. He will send the Mahdi to them whether they want it or not. When they ask, he will say, ‘I am not the Mahdi, I make no such claim.’ They can try all they like, but they cannot stop him. Because that is destiny.
Look, one of the verses that most astonishes me is this: “We sent you only to bring good news and to give warning.” He is someone who impart glad tidings with Islamic unity, the Mahdi and Jesus the Messiah, who tells people to obey the Qur’an and who scares people with the idea of the wrath of Allah.
This verse refers to the Prophet (saas), of course, but I am discussing the aspect that points to the End Times.
Look how marvelous this is. The 56th verse of the 25th Surah, al-Furqan. A verse that points to 1956. Surat al-Furqan is the 25th Sura. Verse number 56. Multiply them together and you get the date of the coming of the Mahdi. 1400 [Hijri calendar], around 1980-1981. What is the abjad [numerological] value of the verse? Also 1981. Now what is this? Is it not clear? Masha’Allah.
