Those who imagine that fanaticism is Islam are mistaken
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9TV dated May 05th, 2014
Islam is one thing, and bigotry quite another. People fear bigotry. They do not fear Islam. But they think that bigotry is Islam. Bigots grow up like thorn bushes all over the place. There is a huge difference between bigotry and Islam. America and Europe are shown bigotry. Then they wonder why they are entering in among them. Bigots want to kill all Christians and Jews. Of course people will hate those who want to kill them. You hate women wearing loose clothing. Music, and people who laugh and have fun. Then they will hate you back. Bigotry is a terrible scourge, and just as great a threat as communism.
Iranian President Hasan Rouhani has announced that the WhatsApp messaging site will be banned in his country. That is another piece of bigotry. Hasan Rouhani is actually a very modern person. The bigots are making him do this. He is not a bigot. He is a modern person. The bigots are pressurizing him to do it. But there is nothing of the bigot about him.
Fanatics act on the basis of supposition and guesswork
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9TV dated May 07th, 2014
Surat al-Furqan, "The Messenger says, ‘My Lord, my people treat this Qur’an as something to be ignored’.”
God is setting out the reason for the current scourge.
"My Lord, my people treat this Qur’an as something to be ignored.”
We can see the price of the fanatics’ foolishness. They are unaware they have abandoned the Qur’an. They say they are serving the Qur’an. My brother, you are adding polytheism to the Qur’an. You are fabricating additions to it. How could a Companion say anything totally opposed to the Qur’an? You are fabricating new rules in violation of the Qur’an. The Prophet had an obligation to abide by the Qur’an. 'No, the hadiths have replaced this,’ you say. Then they wonder why scourges rain down on them. God says, “Then they will have no recourse except to say, "By God, our Lord, We were not idolaters.’” in one verse. They are unaware they are idolaters.
"When they are told: ‘Follow what God has sent down,’ they say, ‘No, we will follow what we found our fathers doing.’ " another verse says.
They are going by tradition. They are traditionalists. Not by the Qur’an. They passionately espouse their own ideas and ways of thinking. 'Hazrat Fatimah said that,” they say. Were you there then? How do you know? Why make Hazrat Fatimah a party to your lies? That is imputing a sin to her.
"Some of them are illiterate, knowing nothing of the Book but wishful thinking. They only speculate." says a verse.
Yes, God says they lie through speculation and guesswork. When you ask, they say they are guessing. They are lying on the basis of guesswork.
