Land and naval blockade should be imposed to Syria

Land and naval blockade should be imposed to Syria

Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9 TV dated October 15th, 2012
ADNAN OKTAR: The only thing to do is to impose a naval blockade and a land blockade should be imposed as well. That would have a very positive psychological effect. That would be good for the government to withdraw and for Al-Assad's security of life to be preserved. For instance that new ones in force should say that they are at the side of Al-Assad and that they will protect him. Then his heart will be extremely at ease. Right? He can get into a helicopter and flee so that he will save his life. Or let them land on the place that he is in with 5-10 helicopters, by that they will have a military landing  and take him away from there. He should be very uncomfortable with the gang there, he is being held as a captive in their hands.

ADNAN OKTAR: Masha'Allah It is very nice that our Prime Minister is very articulate. He is an individual with persuasive ability. Let them invite Putin as well. He is an honest person as well. He is a person inclined to Islam and the Qur'an. Together with Ahmadinejad they should go to him[to Bashar Al-Assad]. In fact he [Bashar Al-Assad] is the type of person who can easily be persuaded if he came here. He used to be a modern person. His wife is a very decent lady and his children are very nice as well. However he is horrified at the moment, he is unable to act reasonably. He has lost his mind out of fear. We hear his news from the people around him. They say that he keeps pacing back and forth in the room and that he is very nervous and tense. He is in a state of panic. They say that he is getting angry at almost everything and that he responds in a shouting tone to everything. They say that he is very stressful and very tense.  Normally he wasn't like this. For that reason there is no reason to make his blood run cold. Eventually Turkey's uniting with Syria is of concern, Iraq's uniting with them is of concern and that can be done very easily. Why should that man resist to that if he is talked into it?

Skepticism prevails in today's society

ADNAN OKTAR: "Societies and people are not able to talk to each other comfortably. People are very touchy and inclined to infer different meanings from things. Friendships are transient. How can people overcome this Master and how should such people be treated? "
".. people are not able to talk to each other comfortably.." Well, that is because that person's face is the face of a human being yet his soul is a monster. One approaches the other with well intentions, with compassion and that one pulls such a trick and persecutes him in such a way that it is indescribable. Or this one says "how are you? Are you okay? I've seen you well," with very good intentions yet the other says; "Well, he said such a thing to me, he said 'I've seen you well!' to me!" And he makes such outrageous comments upon that; "He said; "I've seen you well!" and he said this to me so as to imply that I am drunk! He said it to mean "you are stoned!" Well, what does it have to do with it? He just asks you how you are and if you are fine and he says that he has seen you well, so what is the problem with that? Because an evil skepticism prevails, even the most friendly, the most endearing manners are attributed to evil feelings by many people. That is why people try to speak as few as possible. They try to minimize their speaking and evade. They even avoid looking anyone in the eye. Do you ever see anyone outside who looks another in the eye while talking?
DIDEM RAHVANCI: That is very true Master.
ADNAN OKTAR: That is something very rare. They never look another in the eye. And they are very careful to minimize their talks, with the minimum words and only as much as they can do what they want. For instance if one wants to buy a sesame ring he would just say; "How much is this, my brother? Take your Money and give it to me." That is it. If they want to buy a dress, "how much is this? Take this," and the matter is all over. However Allah has created us to love each other. He created us to love the whole universe. He created us to love animals and the plants. Before all else Allah wants us to love Him. "People are very touchy.." That is because some people disgracefully make innuendos, they are insincere and they lack good conscience. So they feel fear, they never know which of the things said are innuendos and which are friendly. For instance the man writes an article for the newspaper and in his own way he makes innuendos. Something happens and he says allusive words, for instance he puts an exclamation mark in the end. For instance he says; "that is very nice" and then puts an exclamation mark and the other one gets offended saying "who knows what he means."
 ".. and inclined to infer different meanings from things." Because human intelligence is a sophisticated intelligence if one does not have fear of Allah, if one does not love Allah, that person would be under the influence of the satan anyway. And once that person gets under the influence of the satan he/she would most probably engage in abnormal behavior. Take a look at the Facebook. For instance they see a very beautiful woman and I look at the comments under the photo, people with the mindset of a Muslim would be write their comments in an admiring tone but those with an evil mindset would have rage and hatred inside. In fact one should not feel rage towards beauty, beauty should be appreciated but they approach with hatred. That foreign actress came from abroad, Angelina Jolie.. She is the sweetest of the World, she is really beautiful. And these people accused her of being an agent and some other things.. The only thing they didn't accuse her of was being a murderer. They pictured her dipping her fingers in blood and painting her lips with it. Is she someone like that? She is a mother, she has children. She is such an immaculate person. She came to Turkey showing compassion to the refugees of Syria and she went to Pakistan showing compassion to the sufferers of natural disasters. She is a woman who devoted herself to goodness and beauty. You should appreciate her my brother, look at her with lovingly, how could something like that be said to a person who is a guest in your country? What a humiliating thing this is, what a weird, what a bad attitude this is.There may be some people who do such things out of ignorance, out of their lack of knowledge. And such people should also pull themselves together. For instance look at my dear one here, she is a non-Muslim, she is Christian but she is the sweetest of the World, she is such a radiant person, she is such a beautiful being. She is such a beautiful Manifestation of Allah. Someone looking at her with the eyes of an unbeliever, with jealousy might say inconceivable things but I am looking at her with loving eyes so I feel an admiration, I am greatly pleased with her being, I like her a lot and I appreciate her, I want to be with her in this World and in the Hereafter, I would want her to be even better, I would want her to find abundance in her life, I would want her life to be high-class, joyous and merry. But let us say that you ask about her to a woman, to a woman who feels jealousy for instance she acts as if she can almost kill her, such people are full of hatred. And that is the result of darwinist, materialist education. This wouldn't be the case if people had been brought up with love, this wouldn't have happened if they had targetted love. We should target to attain a fervent love. Love is in our nature anyway; we've been created to love and to be loved. We always are in search of this. However, women are already defenseless beings, those beloved ones of mine, the shyness they feel is natural. They might hesitate thinking that the other might do harm to her, that is because their tone is not that strong and the other side is sometimes an animalistic man in the street or elsewhere let us say.. The woman would of course behave timid, what else can she do? For instance the other side says something but it feels as if he/she is allusive, he/she is not being honest. Or else if an honest person approaches an honest woman there would of course be an honest, affectionate environment. But in this case the other party is sinister, it is understood from his face, a woman would of course be leery of that.  Or it might be the other way round as well. Sometimes the woman might be the sinister party and the man might be the well intentioned one.

Adnan Oktar Says 2012-10-17

A9 TV; October 17th, 2012

  • Allah helps people with good morality.
  • People will fail to recognize Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) in the beginning and they will not regard him as significant, however later on they will come to love Hazrat Mahdi with a great affection.
  • There are a lot secrets in repeating two's.
  • The year 2023 is the date of the system of Mahdi and the Union of Islam.
  • Bediuzzaman says that some ignorant scholars disrupt the faith of common Muslims through superstitions. These people Bediuzzaman mentions numb people's brains through inconceivable superstitions.

Adnan Oktar Says 2012-10-16

A9 TV; October 16th, 2012

  • Yajuj and Majuj are the names of the two systems the antichrist will use for persecution; one of them is communism and the other is fascism. Yajuj and Majuj have appeared during the 1st and 2nd World Wars. More than a billion people have been killed and thus Yajuj and Majuj have performed and completed their duty.
  • While there is still time, before it is too late Turkey should unite with Iran.
  • All the Prophets have been slandered with accusations of being in flagrant error. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will also be slandered with the exact same libels casted upon the prophets.
  • The deep state in Syria is holding Bashar Al-Assad captive. It is possible to convince Al-Assad by telling him that he would not be approached with a vindictive spirit and to take him out of Damascus right away. However he is very anxious and afraid at the moment. Let us reassure him and take him from there and bring him to Turkey at all costs. We should be in contact with Ahmadinejad about this.
  • Our government should escalate the policy of Turkish-Islamic Union. It should start to work on faster for the Union of Islam with purpose and vigor. Everyone supports the union of Islam, there will be no obstacle in front of them. Many of the countries will instantly accept the Unity of Islam. All the roads for the Unity of Islam are open, our government should press for it. As they press for it they will see that everything is going on smoothly, their path will be opened with every single step they take.
  • Nato should be involved in the establishment of a buffer zone with Syria.
  • A person who tries to ensure that religion is lived by through the use of violence is a bigot. There is freedom in the understanding of true Islam.
  • Our Prophet (saas) has described Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) with impeccable details.
  • A leaderless union of Islam cannot be thought of. The spiritual leader of the Islamic world should be disclosed. Our Prophet (saas) says that this leader is the Mahdi (pbuh).
  • Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is a crucially important personality. When there is Mahdi (pbuh), it would be wrong to say that another leader should be elected for Muslims.

Adnan Oktar Says 2012-10-15

A9 TV; October 15th, 2012

  • Turkey is the country in which the system of the Mahdi is believed the most in the world. The second country is Iraq. Masha'Allah.
  • We do not want Syria to be divided. Our goal in Syria is to ensure the security of life for everyone there.
  • The hadiths that have occurred cannot be called mawdu hadith. If a hadith is realized that means it is a sahih(authentic) hadith. We accept all the hadiths that comply with the Qur'an, all the hadiths that have been realized. We do not accept any accounts that are incompatible with the Qur'an.
  • The system of the Mahdi fully complies with the Qur'an, it is the truth in every aspect.
  • A Muslim can never be ugly, Muslims are radiant and beautiful.
  • It would be very wrong to form a religion according to one's own mind and then to look for it in the Qur'an. One should directly look at the Qur'an. There is no adjudicator other than Allah.
  • Those who give an intellectual struggle on the path of Allah will be covered with prosperity.
  • A person who drinks alcohol will become a sinner but that person would not be abandoning religion.
  • Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will put away denominations and people will abide by pure revelation.
  • In the Qur'an, Allah does not pronounce commands ambiguously, through implications that are open to interpretation. If there is no verse containing a clear judgment about a certain matter, it does not constitute a religious obligation.
  • Our Prophet (saas) was a very kind, high quality and classy person.
  • The soul is trained through hardships and ordeals.
  • Allah regards people's attaining value by being subjected to tests as very significant.
  • There is no other scholar who explains Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) as detailed and as perfect as Bediuzzaman. The details he has given about the Mahdi (pbuh) are amazing.
  • A terrestrial and naval blockage should be put on Syria.

Adnan Oktar Says 2012-10-12

A9 TV; October 12th, 2012

  • I wouldn't disclose the location of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) even if I knew.
  • Allah has given pain but He also has given medicine. Allah created modern medicine to sooth the pain. No one ever faces anything that he/she cannot bear.
  • Weaknesses enable people understand the vainness of this world and love Allah. Illnesses make people modest.
  • Aches and pains zestfully draw us closer to Allah.
  • Prophets have a great spiritual sensibility.
  • The Last Day has been halted because Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) has come; it has been made to wait.
  • The US, Europe and Illuminati organization want the Union of Islam as well. The Union of Islam will most definitely be established insha'Allah.
  • We want Syria's union with Turkey.
  • Preaching the truths of the Qur'an is most urgent.
  • The world no longer gives narrow minded people any time of the day.
  • Muslim is the most humble and best mannered person in the world whose heart is ebullient with love.
  • In communism, there is no calm structure based on convincing.
  • Our soldiers are praised by our Prophet (saas), the Messenger of Allah.
  • His Highness Bediuzzaman is the greatest scholar of all times. People talking against him increase our love to him even further. Our Master is the sweetest of the world, he is brave and he is one of his kind.

Global Impact

On 30th of September 2012 an international conference was organized at Espace des Congrès des Esselières in Paris, which consisted of two parts.

The first part under the topic “SCIENCE, EVOLUTION AND FAITH” included the scientific developments that proved the invalidity of Darwinism.

During this first part, Dr. Oktar Babuna who is a brain surgeon gave a presentation that involved the works of Mr Adnan Oktar (Harun Yahya). After Dr. Babuna, many distinguished scientists whose names mentioned as below made a speech:

Mr. Dominique Tassota certified engineer and well-known anti-Darwinist scientist and the President of CEP (CENTRE D'ETUDES ET DE PROSPECTIVES SUR LA SCIENCE), which is one of the leading Catholic Anti-Darwinist organizations of Europe, stated that theory of evolution is in a big dilemma in terms of science and also contradicts the Christian faith.

Professor Fabrizio Fratus who is a professor of sociology and the President of AISO – the most active Anti-Darwinist organization in Italy- told that the origin of life cannot be explained through Darwinism and presented many scientific facts.

Those most esteemed scientists, who are well known with their anti-Darwinist researches, works and conferences all through the world, spoke highly of the global impact of Harun Yahya works during their lecture. They also told that they would feel great honor if there is any opportunity to work in collaboration with Mr. Adnan Oktar.

The second part was titled as “ISLAM, CHRISTIANITY, JUDAISM: THE RELIGIONS OF PEACE AND FREEDOM FOR HUMANITY. During this part, the respectable speakers stated that Abrahamic religions have many common values; Christianity, Judaism and Islam defend peace, brotherhood, love and reconciliation among the people. Here are some other respectable lecturers who made speech in this part;

Mr. Philippe Louveau, the Archbishop of Villejuif area, stated that Christianity aims to make peace, love, friendship and freedom widespread among the people by giving examples from the Gospel and the history.

Professor Ghawthy Hadj Eddine Sari who is the honorary president of World Conference of Religions for Peace (WCRP) and OCAMEDH (Observatoire Citoyen Afro-Méditerranéen Ethiques Bioéthique et Droits de l’Homme) which is an association of African-Mediterranean People Ethical, Bioethical and Human Rights Watch, commentated on Abrahamic religions by calling them the sources of peace and freedom.

Mr. Emir Pousse, the President of ASN France explained that Islam is based on peace and freedom and aims to provide peace, serenity, confidence and comfort of the humanity by quoting works of Mr Adnan Oktar.

Finally, Mr. Aly El-Samman, the President of the Union for Intercultural and Interfaith Dialogue and Peace Education (ADIC) made the closing speech.

A9 TV; October 13th, 2012

  • We continue to lift the veils on the system of the Mahdi.
  • Pain, sufferings and tears would not cease to exist unless people abide by Mahdi (pbuh).
  • The way to prevent Muslims being divided among themselves is to abide by Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).
  • Bediuzzaman says that the system of the dajjal (antichrist) will intimidate some scholars.
  • Our sources about the things we explain regarding the future are the statements of our Prophet (saas) and the statements of Bediuzzaman and the saints.
  • The claim which states that Bediuzzaman is from the line of his highness Abdul-Qadir Gilani is not true.
  • Struggling against the system of the Mahdi is one of the main subject matters of the satan.
  • Darwinism and materialism will fall into a deeper incapability in 2014's.
  • Wise Freemasons, Freemasons who love Allah come into prominence.

  • Deep world state has come to love Allah.
  • Our sight sharpens as Allah lifts the covers upon us.

Adnan Oktar Says 2012-10-11

A9 TV; October 11th, 2012

  • Faith and chastity beautifies a Muslim. If a person does not have chastity, there would be an indescribable repulsiveness on that person.
  • Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will be the imam until he passes away.
  • Imams will most definitely come from the line of Adnan, they are from the Quraysh tribe. Our Prophet (saas) has defined that as the condition of imamate.
  • Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will recognize the Prophet Jesus Messiah (pbuh) instantly the moment he lays eyes on him.
  • Judgments cannot be derived from the Qur'an through implications. Commands regarding religious obligations are defined openly and clearly in the Qur'an.
  • Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will save people from material and spiritual dangers and from the Divine Wroth.
  • While Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) intellectually demolishes Darwinism, his students will help him.
  • Bediuzzaman has left the intellectual and scientific collapse of Darwinism to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). He said that Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will before all else silence Darwinism completely by collapsing the whole ideology.
  • US- Turkey – Iran should do good by forming an alliance; they should take Al-Assad out of Syria.
  • Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will put aside religious sects and Islam religion will be lived according to pure revelations.
  • The system of the Mahdi brought radiance and light upon Muslims.
  • Bigoted people hate not only people but even beautiful furniture.
  • Some circles have pulled a trick -in their minds- by confining Muslims in a bigoted mindset; they have thus stripped Muslim off from everything that is beautiful such as art, music, aesthetics and quality. And we have spiked their guns.

Adnan Oktar Says 2012-10-07

A9 TV; October 7th, 2012

  • We feel compassion towards those communists, we consider the best for them as well. 
  • Islam is a shool of love, a school of the lovers. It is the religion by which love is experienced in the most beautiful form. 
  • The Qur'an teaches us how to use this world. The world will be ruined when the commands of the Qur'an are not implemented. 
  • Both territorial and maritime blockade should be implemented in Syria. 
  • There is no command in the Qur'an that would conflict with reason and the good conscience of people. 
  • Bediuzzaman says that Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will ally with devout Christians. 
  • According to the hadith records loving women is a part of the morality of the prophets. 
  • By calling made-up statement "hadiths", they are slandering our Prophet (saas). 
  • In bigots there is a gruesome hatred towards women. According to the belief of the bigots; women are short of religion and of reason. 
  • By infiltrating beliefs that do not really exist into Islam, they are alienating people from religion. 
  • There is no compulsion in religion. No one can be forced to perform prayers, fast and give alms. Those can only be done most sincerely and willingly. 
  • Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will abolish all those made-up commands derived afterwards.

In the face of Islamophobia, Muslim countries should advocate the true Islam, Islam as it was lived at the time of the Companions

In the face of Islamophobia, Muslim countries should advocate the true Islam, Islam as it was lived at the time of the Companions

Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9TV dated September 18th, 2012

Watch Online on HarunYahya.Tv A9 logo_m

ADNAN OKTAR: Islamophobia.. What is this? Is it because they are afraid of Islam, that they feel uneasy about Islam?
DIDEM URER: Yes Master.
ADNAN OKTAR: Well, now there is a wrong point about that. There is one Islam that the Companions have lived by, the understanding of Islam that we've been talking about, that we have been explaining.  That is Paradise, that is a beauty. That the adornment of this world. This is the understanding of love, the understanding of compassion, the understanding of friendship which embraces the whole world. Well, how about the understanding of Islam which is commonly known, one that is explained by the bigots, the alleged Islam- which in fact has nothing to do with Islam? Is it not something that would make these people afraid? That is something that would not only make them afraid and but make them quake with fear. There is misogyny, there is lack of love, there is killing people for almost anything, there is injuring people by beating, there is lack of trust in general towards people, there is hatred towards Jews, there is hatred towards Christians, there is hatred towards irreligious and atheists. But what kind of hatred is this? It is in the sense of persecution. Well then, what is this? What is it to you? Allah has created that one as a Christian, Allah has created this one as a Jew, Allah has created the other one as an atheist, and the other irreligious- well those two are almost the same anyway. Or it might be that one believes in Allah but not in religion or sometimes they get confused and say "I do not believe in Allah but I believe in religion!" They represent a complex structure, something weird. However it is working for them. Well, if you say that you believe in Allah, you should believe in religion anyway, how can that be without religion? I mean you would thus be claiming that Allah has no connection with people.
One believes in religion and says ;"religion is very nice but I cannot believe in Allah." That is another form of madness, abnormality. I mean you see that the man lives religion but when asked he is irreligious, I mean he is Godless, he does not believe in Allah, yet he accepts the commands of the religion. There are those who perform prayers, there is such a person. A Maoist, famous person, he does not believe in Allah, he openly says that he does not believe in Allah. But he says that he performs his prayers, he says "I never miss a prayer time." We have the pictures of this person, I can show you those if you like. That is such a weird situation. But of course one should be compassionate towards everyone, towards every belief. I mean all should be approached compassionately. It is possible to have people live as brothers in a world without wars, without shedding blood, without making scenes, without hurting anyone. And this is only possible with the Unity of Islam. It can only be possible with Islam being implemented in the exact way the Companions did. It is bigotry that Europe is afraid of. And bigotry is widely common. These people are right to be afraid according to their mindset. I mean they have justified reasons to be leery of. The others keep saying "we will hunt you down, we will hang you." They say;" I will chop up the Alewites, I will chop up the Bektashis, I will chop up the Jaferites and   Wahhabis." What does "I will chop them up!" mean? Is this not an open threat. I mean this one says; "If I am given the opportunity I will do this!" So they say "then, before you are given any such opportunity, I should neutralize you." This is the ignominy that has occurred. Therefore there is nothing to misunderstand about this. The governments should pronounce the name of bigotry in the face of this abnormality. Islamic governments or the administrators in the Islamic countries or the seniors, or whoever there is to react, should do this; they should say; "My brother, we are against bigotry," and say;" this is what bigotry means.. "  and give an explanation. They should say; "We advocate the Islam in the time of the Companions, the Islam of love, the real Islam." The name of the other side should be pronounced [as bigots]. And then we would assume an attitude against that "bigot"ophobia as well. There is no Islamophobia but there is bigot-ophobia, insha'Allah.  And they are right. We are in alliance with them regarding bigot-ophobia. We will of course assume an attitude against them altogether. This should be put forth. But if you bigots under your wings saying "what is the fault of bigots?" you would end up being a liar. These bigots say openly say that they will "chop-up" they say "I will hunt them down", they do not deny it anyway. They pose for the cameras with the sword in their hands. They chop people up and take picture of it and publish it over the internet saying; "have a look at this, this is how I will make them." The man has lined the skulls proudly in order and he says; "this is how I will hunt you down." And he thus is saying; " this is what I can do with the limited means I have right now, you think about what I can do I am given better means." They were burning Muslims alive in Africa, piling them up in a well, they were burning people with bushes. These poor people were trying to escape yet they pushed them back inside that pit by kicking them in the face and throw burning bushes over him and he claims that he is doing all these in the Name of Allah. When asked he says; "I am a God-fearing Muslim as you see." And the other bigots advocate them gruntingly. There is a danger of bigots and that is a grave scourge. The whole Islamic world should take their places in the side of the system of the Mahdi. If they do not take their side with the system of the Mahdi, they would thus be accepting bigotry, radicalism. In this stance you would be standing against a rightful opposition with a wrongful method. These people are right, they are right to refrain, they are telling the truth and you stand up and say; "well, where do you come up with such ideas, why are you thinking like this?" The man is waiting with a sword in his hand saying that " I will hunt you down!" What should they do? This should be arranged and put right. The real Islam should be communicated to people and those who advocate the real Islam should come together and that can only happen through the system of the Mahdi and with allegiance to the Prophet Jesus Messiah (pbuh). We should ask Allah to show us the Prophet Jesus Messiah (pbuh), we should ask Allah to see the Mahdi and to become a student of the Mahdi (pbuh).
DIDEM URER: Insha'Allah Master.

The pacifism of Islam

The pacifism of Islam
Ahmadu Bamba, founder of the Mourides

  • Harun Yahya has suggested that the Quran demonstrates that war is an "unwanted obligation which has to be absolutely carried out with strict observance of particular humane and moral values and resorted only when it is inevitable".

  • Naqshbandi Sufi Imam Shamil (26 June 1797 – 4 February 1871). He is 3rd Imam of Dagestan. peace loving Naqshbandi Sufi Imam Shamil fought a Jihad against the Russians in Caucasus. Russians suffered about 3000 casualties by effective use of guerrilla warfare tactics of Imam Shamil. One Russian General said if Imam Shamil doesn't destroy Russian armies then they capture all India and Japan.

  • In 19th-century SenegalAmadou Bamba founded the Mouride brotherhood, a sect of Islam dominated by his "profoundly pacifist" teachings. He was peace loving sufi but he fought wars with French as unwanted obligation.
  • Movements headed by Said Nursî emphasized the need for religious dialogue, education and service to the poor as the backbone of Islam.

The pacifism of Islam

According to the Koran, war represents an "unwanted obligation" which has to be absolutely carried out with strict observance of particular humane and moral values and resorted only when it is inevitable.

In a verse, it is explained that those who start wars are the disbelievers and that God does not approve wars:

…Each time they kindle the fire of war, Allah extinguishes it. They rush about the earth corrupting it. Allah does not love corrupters. (Surat al-Ma'ida: 64)

A closer examination of Prophet Muhammad's life reveals that war is a method resorted for defensive purposes only in unavoidable situations.

The revelation of the Koran to Prophet Muhammad lasted for 23 years. During the first 13 years of this period, Muslims lived as a minority under a pagan rule in Mecca and faced much oppression. Many Muslims were harassed, abused, tortured, and even murdered, their houses and possessions were plundered. Despite this however, Muslims led their lives without resorting to any violence and always called pagans to peace.

When the oppression of pagans escalated unbearably, Muslims emigrated to the town of Yathrib, which was later to be renamed Medina, where they could establish their own order in a more friendly and free environment. Even establishing their own political system did not prompt them to take up weapons against aggressive pagans of Mecca. Only after the following revelation, the Prophet commanded his people to get prepared for war:

Permission to fight is given to those who are fought against because they have been wronged - truly God has the power to come to their support - those who were expelled from their homes without any right, merely for saying, 'Our Lord is God'… (Surat al-Hajj: 39-40)

In brief, Muslims were allowed to wage war only because they were oppressed and subjected to violence. To put it in another way, God granted permission for war only for defensive purposes. In other verses, Muslims are warned against use of unnecessary provocation or unnecessary violence:

Fight in the Way of God against those who fight you, but do not go beyond the limits. God does not love those who go beyond the limits. (Surat al-Baqara: 190)

After the revelations of these verses, wars occurred between Muslims and pagan Arabs. In none of these wars, however, were the Muslims the inciting party. Furthermore, Prophet Muhammad established a secure and peaceful social environment for Muslims and pagans alike by signing a peace agreement (Hudaybiya) which conceded to the pagans most of their requests. The party who violated the terms of the agreement and started a new war was again the pagans. However, with rapid conversions into Islam, the Islamic armies attained great power against the pagan Arabs and Prophet Muhammad conquered Mecca without bloodshed and in a spirit of tolerance. If he willed, he could have taken revenge on pagan leaders in the city. Yet, he did not do harm to any one of them, forgave them and treated them with the utmost tolerance. Pagans, who would later convert to Islam by their own will, could not help admiring such noble character of the Prophet.

The Islamic principles God proclaims in the Koran account for this peaceful and temperate policy of Prophet Muhammad. In the Koran, God commands believers to treat even the non-Muslims kindly and justly:

...God does not forbid you from being good to those who have not fought you over religion or driven you from your homes, or from being just towards them. God loves those who are just. God merely forbids you from taking as friends those who have fought you over religion and driven you from your homes and who supported your expulsion... (Surat al-Mumtahana: 8-9)

The verses above specify the outlook of a Muslim on non-Muslims: A Muslim should treat all non-Muslims kindly and avoid making friends only with those who show enmity to Islam. In case this enmity causes violent attacks against the existence of Muslims, that is, in case they wage a war against them, then Muslims should respond them justly by considering the humane dimensions of the situation. All forms of barbarism, unnecessary acts of violence and unjust aggression are forbidden by Islam. In another verse, God warns Muslims against this and explains that rage felt for enemies should not cause them to drift them into injustice:

You who believe! Show integrity for the sake of God, bearing witness with justice. Do not let hatred for a people incite you into not being just. Be just. That is closer to heedfulness. Heed God (alone). God is aware of what you do. (Surat al-Ma'ida: 8)

The Meaning of the Concept of "Jihad"

Another concept that deserves clarification due to the content of this article is the concept of "jihad".
The exact meaning of "Jihad" is "effort". That is, in Islam, "to carry out jihad" is "to show efforts, to struggle". Prophet Muhammad explained that "the greatest jihad is the one a person carries out against his lower soul". What is meant by "lower soul" here is the selfish desires and ambitions. A struggle given on intellectual grounds against anti-religious, atheist views is also a form of jihad in its complete sense.
Apart from these ideological and spiritual meanings, struggle in the physical sense is also considered as "jihad". However, as explained above, this has to be a struggle carried out solely for defensive purposes. The use of the concept of "jihad" for acts of aggression against innocent people, that is for terror, would be unjust and a great distortion.

Compassion, Tolerance and Pacifism in Islam

To state briefly, the Islamic political doctrine is extremely peaceful and moderate. This fact is also confirmed by many non-Muslim historians and theologians. One of these is the British historian, Karen Armstrong, a former nun and a renowned expert on Middle East history. In her book, Holy War, in which she examines the history of the three great divine religions, she comments:

... The word Islam comes from the same Arabic root as the word peace and the Koran condemns war as an abnormal state of affairs opposed to God's will: "When the enemies of the Muslims kindle a fire for war, Allah extinguishes it. They strive to create disorder in earth, and Allah loves not those who create disorder."(Koran 28:78). Islam does not justify a total aggressive war or extermination, as the Torah does in the first five books of the Bible. A more realistic religion than Christianity, Islam recognizes that war is inevitable and sometimes a positive duty in order to and oppressions and suffering. The Koran teaches that war must be limited and be conducted in as humane a way of possible. Mohammed had to fight not only the Meccans but also the Jewish tribes in the area and Christian tribes in Syria who planned on offensive against him in alliance with the Jews. Yet this did not make Mohammed denounce the People of the Book. His Muslims were forced to defend themselves but they were not fighting a holy war against the religion of their enemies. When Mohammed sent his freedman Zaid against the Christians at the head of a Muslim army, he told them to fight in the cause of God bravely but humanely. They must not molest priests, monks and nuns nor the weak and helpless people who were unable to fight. There must be no massacre of civilians nor should they cut down a single tree nor pull down any building. This was very different from the wars of Joshua. [1]

Following the death of Prophet Muhammad, Muslims continued to treat the members of other religions with tolerance and respect. Islamic states became the secure and free home of both Jews and Christians. After the conquest of Jerusalem, Caliph Omar calmed the Christians who were in fear of a massacre and explained to them that they were secure. Furthermore, he visited their churches and declared that they could continue to practise their worship freely.

In 1099, 4 centuries after the conquest of Jerusalem by Muslims, Crusaders invaded Jerusalem and put all Muslims inhabitants to the sword. Again, contrary to the fears of Christians, Saladin, the Muslim general who captured Jerusalem and saved the city from invasion in 1187, did not touch even a single civilian and did not allow a single soldier to plunder. Moreover, he allowed the invading Christians to take all their possessions and leave the city in security.

The periods of Seljuk Turks and the Ottoman Empire were also marked by the tolerance and justice of Islam. As is known, Jews who were expelled from Catholic Spain found the peace they sought on the lands of Ottoman Empire, where they took refuge in 1492. Sultan Mehmed, the conqueror of Istanbul, also allowed Jews and Christians religious freedom. Regarding the tolerant and just practises of Muslims, historian A. Miquel states the following:

The Christians were ruled by a very well administered state which was something that did not exist in the Byzantium or Latin sovereignty. They were never subjected to a systematized oppression. On the contrary, the Empire, and foremost Istanbul, became a refuge for the much tortured Spanish Jews. They were never forced to accept Islam. [2]

John L. Esposito, a professor of Religion and International Politics at the Georgetown University, makes a similar comment:

For many non-Muslim populations in Byzantine and Persian territories already subjugated to foreign rulers, Islamic rule meant an exchange of rulers, the new ones often more flexible and tolerant, rather than a loss of independence. Many of these populations now enjoyed greater local autonomy and often paid lower taxes... Religiously, Islam proved a more tolerant religion, providing greater religious freedom for Jews and indigenous Christians. [3]

As is clarified in these words, history never witnessed Muslims as "makers of mischief". On the contrary, they brought security and peace to the people from all nations and beliefs inhabiting the large territory over which they reigned. (For further reference, see Justice and Tolerance in the Koran, by Harun Yahya, 2000)
In brief, compassion, peace and tolerance constitute the very basis of the values of the Koran and Islam aims to wipe mischief out of the earth.

The commands of the Koran and the ways Muslims practised them throughout history are so clear as to leave no room for dispute.

Adnan Oktar Says 2012-10-06

A9 TV; October 6th, 2012

  • The green of the paradise is not the green that we know of. We will see that green only in paradise.
  • Some people attempt to present some made-up statements as if they were hadiths. A statement that is not compliant with the Qur’an cannot be an hadith. Would our Prophet (saas) ever say anything that is not compliant with the Qur’an? It should be clearly understood from that. We do accept all those hadiths that are compliant with the Qur’an and as for those statements that are not compliant with the Qur’an, they are obviously not hadiths.
  • The state of Israel will consist of faithful Jewish people sincerely devoted to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). 
  • Bigots and idolaters can never understand love.
  • Prophets have always been subjected to slanders of being a magician and all their disciples were known as “bewitched”. It is an honor for a muslim to be subjected to the same slanders the prophets have endured.
  • In the beginning Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will receive hatred from people, but later on gradually increasingly he will be loved very much.
  • Allah will lead Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) to the seaside just like the Prophet Moses (pbuh).
  • Allah gave prophets an amazing tenderness and purity in love.
  • Allah gives a special love to the hearts of those who truly have faith and do good deeds.
  • Turkey is a reasonable country, no one should expect a war.

The Representatives of Harun Yahya gave a speech in the Grand Masonic Lodge of Italy regarding the fact that Islam is a religion of peace and love.
