Terror has no religion
We are at a time when offensiveness, violence and hate have become ordinary in almost every corner of the world. There is news of more bloodshed from a different region almost every day, and the violence targets mostly innocent people.
The terrorist attacks which have taken place in Kenya and Pakistan over the last weekend have once again brought Islam and the subject of violence to the world agenda. Even though Islam is a religion of love and peace - and quite clearly states that everyone must be treated as first-class citizens regardless of faith, race, language and thought - how come there is so much violence and pain in the Muslim world?
No religion commands violence. No religion encourages ruthlessness, selfishness, lovelessness and massacre. Violence and the conditions that pave the way for violence develops when ideologies that promote conflict replace the moral values of religion that sees people as equal servants created by Allah and praises modesty, patience, compassion and unrequited love.
Simply because various terrorists call themselves Muslims, who execute people by shooting them when they cannot get an answer after asking them about the "pillars of faith", who resort to their guns when they hear the answer "Yes" to the question of "Are you a Christian?" and who ruthlessly murder innocents, does not make these persecutors Muslim.
A suicide attack in a church in Pakistan has nothing to do with Islam as well. Allah mentions in the Quran that churches are "where Allah's name is mentioned much", (22:40) and thus, churches are under Allah's protection. Anyone who tries to damage churches contradicts the command of Allah.
Conflict goes hand-in-hand with lovelessness. Let's take a look at the Islamic world. Today some of the Shia Muslims do not accept Sunnis as real Muslims and there are Sunnis who do not consider the Shias as Muslims. However, no matter their differences, both the Shias and the Sunnis are Muslims who believe in the same Allah and the same prophets, turn to the same qiblah and read the same Holy Quran. There is no difference in the Quran between Sunni and Shia. So why is there enmity instead of finding the least common denominator? Why is bloodshed and hatred encouraged? The answer is simple: Lovelessness. The problem is not sectarianism. Sectarianism is just another name for legalising hate and violence.
The essence of Islam is love, compassion and friendship. Muslims are obliged to defend and protect the freedom of thought and faith with the command in the Quran, "You have your religion and I have my religion" (109:6) and "...There is no compulsion where the religion is concerned" (2:256). This approach is the best description of democracy and ensures that members of every faith - are protected.
Saying that a religion, which has commands "... if anyone forgoes that [retaliation] as charity, it will act as expiation for him.... " (5:45) even for someone who has committed murder, promotes violence is both ignorance and remorselessness. Every Muslim is obliged to believe that "killing one person is like killing all mankind and giving life to one person is like giving life to all mankind". (5:32) without distinguishing between religions, way of living and thought.
One of the reasons which lead some Muslims who embrace terror and violence as the "right path" - despite these explicit commands of the Qur'an - is that they drift away from the essence of Islam. When the bigoted mentality that embraces false hadiths that conflict with the Qur'an is combined with ignorance, a structure of hate and anger emerges.
The only way to avoid this is to spread the true spirit and morality of the Qur'an, which is love and peace. There are many lessons that the Muslim world needs to take from the Prophet Muhammad, who allowed Christians to perform their own prayer at Masjid al-Nabawi (Prophet's Mosque in Medina), spread his own cloak for Jewish and Christian guests to sit on and who stood up and paid his respects when a Jewish funeral procession passed by him. To learn from these lessons, the Muslim world must know the Quran and our Prophet more closely. They need to explore the beauty of Islam with a reasonable, rational, realistic point of view purified of superstitions. This can only be achieved through education.
The West also has some responsibilities to end the violence; it can be honest and take the first step by recognizing the pains caused by the policies they have followed since the beginning of the 20th century. When this is done, the West can also see that it is an irrational method to attempt to shape the Muslim world in line with their own interests. No doubt, every state first thinks about the welfare of its citizens and country; however, they must know that when they do this in a manner that ignores the rights of others and treats them callously, it will generate a backlash as surely as night follows day.
The only way to solve these problems created by the mistakes of the last century is to build a new civilization. Gun-running, supporting dictatorial regimes, overt and covert pressure and oppression cannot build civilizations. That can only be achieved by changing people's minds. For this, we need to start a new education campaign together both in the West and the East. Let's teach this peace-loving, forgiving, moderate, compassionate, understanding, mature spirit that Allah wants from us to all people again. Let's be the teachers of love.
If the prudent, moderate, rational peoples of the West and the Islamic world become allies, we can make big significant changes in little a short period of time. Let's not forget that the good are greater in numbers, but they don't ally, whereas the evil becomes more effective because they do ally and are determined in spite of the fact that they are numerically inferior and less in numbers.2013-09-28 21:26:08
Everyone must join forces against terror
The world has been living side by side with terror for hundreds of years. Even though actions may differ from country to country, all terrorist organizations aim at defenseless civilians and send their messages by way of these people. In the terrorist attack in Oklahoma in the USA 167 people were savagely slaughtered, 19 of them children. A fanatical Jew who opened a hail of fire on Muslims praying in a mosque in Palestine caused the deaths of 29 people. Thousands of people have lost their lives in attacks against Muslims in India over the years.
Terrorist attacks both great and small have for years been perpetrated in France, Spain, the Philippines, Japan and Ireland.
One could go on. However, the entire world came face to face with terror in 2001. In the wake of the attacks against two major cities in the USA which led to the deaths and injuries of thousands of people, the concept of “terrorism” began to be debated once again. That was because that attack had been carried out at an unexpected time, against a country regarded as the world’s only superpower, and in a totally unforeseen manner. The attack created an air of fear and panic all over the world, especially in America.
Following the attacks, the USA embarked on a major fight against terror. Many countries have lined up alongside America in this struggle, and lent their support to it. The series of bombings in Istanbul, just when it was thought that the forces of terror had been brought under control, again reminded people of terrorism’s dark face: first synagogues, then the British Consulate, then the HSBC General Directorate building …
The Saturday prayer, which had been performed for centuries, was interrupted by the bombs exploded on November 15th. Twenty-four people were killed in the explosions at the Neva Shalom synagogue at Beyoglu Kuledibi and the Beth Israel synagogue at Sisli, and 300 were injured. Dozens of more people lost their lives in the explosions at the British Consulate and the HSBC building, and hundreds were injured. Images similar to those which followed the September 11 attacks began appearing on our television screens. Ruined buildings, people fleeing in panic, burned out busses, corpses lying in the streets …
The point we wish to emphasize in this article is the Islamic perspective on terror attacks and the killing of the innocent. All forms of terrorist attack are roundly condemned in Islam. According to the Qur'an, it is a great sin to kill an innocent person, and anyone who does so will suffer great torment in the Hereafter:
… If someone kills another person—unless it is in retaliation for someone else or for causing corruption in the earth—it is as if he had murdered all mankind. And if anyone gives life to another person, it is as if he had given life to all mankind. Our Messengers came to them with Clear Signs, but even after that, many of them committed outrages in the earth.(Qur’an, 5:32)
This verse equals the killing of one innocent to slaughtering all of humanity! Another verse expresses the importance that the faithful attach to life:
Those who do not appeal to any other deity besides God [alone]; nor kill any soul whom God has forbidden [them to] except with the right to do so; nor fornicate. Anyone who does so will incur a penalty. (Qur’an, 25:68)
In yet another verse, God issues the following commandment:
Say: "Come, and I will recite to you what your Lord has forbidden for you": that you do not associate anything with Him; that you are good to your parents; that you do not kill your children because of poverty—We will provide for you and them; that you do not approach indecency—outward or inward; that you do not kill any person God has made inviolate—except with the right to do so. That is what He instructs you to do, so that hopefully, you will use your intellect. (Qur’an, 6:151)
Any Muslim who believes in God with a sincere heart, who scrupulously abides by His verses and fears suffering in the Hereafter, will avoid harming even one other person. He knows that the Lord of Infinite Justice will suitably reward him for all his deeds. In one of the hadiths, our Prophet (may God bless him and grant him peace) listed the kinds of people who are not pleasing to God:
"Those who act cruelly and unjustly in the sacred lands, those who yearn for the ways of the ignorant, and those who wrongly shed human blood." (Sahih Bukhari Hadith)
Another element we wish to concentrate on is the attack on devout Turkish Jews worshipping in their synagogues. Churches, synagogues and mosques are houses for the worship of God. It is a terrible crime in the sight of God to slaughter innocent people as they worship in their churches, synagogues or mosques. These are houses where the name of God is remembered, praised and recited. In the Qur’an, , God reveals that:
… God guides to His Light whoever He wills and God makes metaphors for mankind and God has knowledge of all things. In houses which God has permitted to be built and in which His name is remembered, there are men who proclaim His glory morning and evening. (Qur’an, 24:35-36)
The people who go to those places are devout, prayerful people. All houses where the name of God is remembered are sacred in the eyes of Islam. Visitors to these houses may be Jews, Christians or Muslims. The important thing is that each one is a devout believer in God. A Muslim must respect and protect the holy places where the People of the Book worship God, and protect them. For Muslims, these places are precious because in these places, people, whether Jews or Christians, remember God. In the Qur'an, the places of worship of the People of the Book, ie. monasteries, churches and synagogues, are mentioned as places of worship protected by God.
…[I]f God had not driven some people back by means of others, monasteries, churches, synagogues and mosques, where God's name is mentioned much, would have been pulled down and destroyed. God will certainly help those who help Him—God is All-Strong, Almighty. (Qur'an, 22:40)
As a manifestation of his loyalty to God's commands, the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was most careful not to destroy the holy places of the People of the Book. Such destruction means, in the first place, opposing God's commands. This aside, it means preventing people who have faith in God worshipping Him. Indeed, the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) promised the Christians, who were the other party to a peace agreement he made, that their churches would not be destroyed and that they would never be harmed. The tax (Jizya) agreements he made with Christians also guaranteed the safety of churches.
The first agreement made after the death of the Prophet (pbuh) that guaranteed the protection of the temples was a tax agreement Khalid bin al-Waleed signed with the leader of the city of Anat. Ibn Ishaq stated that those agreements made by Khalid bin al-Waleed were also approved by Abu Bakr and the three caliphs following him. This aside, Abu Bakr offered the same guarantees that had been offered to the people of Najran by the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
The Islamic societies that abided by Islamic morality after the death of the Prophet (pbuh) also paid special attention to this issue. Muslim leaders who adhered to the Qur'an and the Sunnah (the sayings and doings of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)) respected the places of worship of non-Muslims in conquered countries and showed great tolerance to the clergy.
Terror Will Disappear When People Come to Live by the Moral Values of Islam
In the Qur'an (32:9), God reveals that He has breathed His Spirit into man, His creation, and that man is His representative on Earth (Qur'an, 6:165). One of the most important differences between man and the animals is that man was created with both earthly desires and with a conscience. Every person possesses desires that incite him to evil, along with a conscience that inspires him to avoid it. Alongside such pleasing attributes inspired by that conscience-love, sacrifice, compassion, humility, affection, honesty, loyalty and kindness-he also possesses destructive and undesirable tendencies, stemming from his earthly desires. Thanks to his conscience, however, the believer can distinguish between right and wrong and opt for what is morally right. Strong belief in and fear of God, faith in the Hereafter, powerful fear of the endless torments of Hell and a yearning for Paradise all keep the temptations of his earthly desires at bay. Therefore, he always behaves well towards people, is forgiving, responds to wickedness with good, assists those in need, and shows compassion, love, affection and tolerance.
Terrorists, on the other hand, listen to their earthly desire for violence instead of their consciences, and can easily turn to all forms of wickedness. They become loveless, aggressive people who easily hurt others without the slightest pang of conscience. Having no fear of God, they do not know the morality of religion, nor do they practice it. Nothing can stop them from committing crimes.
In restraining its citizens, society's prevailing rules can go only so far. Thanks to its law enforcement units, the state may be able to partially protect streets and public spaces, and-thanks to a powerful system of justice-may be able to take necessary means to ensure public order and ensure that the crime rate drops. But since it's impossible to keep watch on every individual, 24 hours a day, it's essential that peoples' consciences enter the equation at some stage. Someone who doesn't heed the voice of his conscience can easily turn to crime when on his own, or surrounded by people of like mind. That being the case, a model of society emerges which is composed of individuals who lie when necessary, have no hesitation about making unjust profits, and feel no unease about oppressing the weak. It is clear that physical precautions and measures will bear no fruit in a society which has no fear of God and which has lost its spiritual values. Religious moral values, on the other hand, command a person to refrain from evil, even if he is all alone, even if nobody will punish him for his evil deeds. It is evident that a person who knows that he will be called to account in the presence of God for his every deed, his every decision and his every word, and that he will be suitably rewarded for these in the eternal life of the Hereafter, will scrupulously avoid committing evil.
Terrorist organizations can't possibly have any place in a society whose people avoid evil of their own free will. Where religion's morality prevails, problems that give rise to organizations supporting the use of violence will disappear naturally. If the whole society possesses superior virtues like honesty, sacrifice, love and justice, there can be no place for such things as poverty, unequal distribution of income, injustice, the oppression of the weak, or limitations on freedoms. On the contrary, a social order will emerge that meets the wants of the needy; where the wealthy protect the poor and the strong, the weak; where everyone can enjoy the very best health care, education, and transport systems. There, tolerance and understanding will dominate the relationships between different ethnic groups, religions and cultures.
For these reasons, proper morality is the key to solving so many social problems. The source of that key, in turn, is the Qur'an, which God has revealed as a guide for mankind.
It must not be forgotten that unless necessary measures are taken, unless deep-rooted solutions are brought in, the 21st century will continue to be a time of terror and violence, just as the 20th was before it. The homes of innocent people will be bombed, and women and children will be slaughtered. The ideological fight against terrorism, therefore, must be started with great urgency, to include very great numbers of people.
This fight will be fought on the level of ideas-between people who believe in God, who are loving, forgiving, compassionate and in full possession of their conscience; and those who draw their strength from ignorance and violence. In one verse, our Lord reveals, "Why were there not people with good sense among the generations of those who came before you, who forbade corruption in the earth…" (Qur'an, 11:116). Believers should possess the virtue that God describes in that verse. While terrorists hope to achieve their aims by violence, believers know that true success can be achieved only by clinging tightly to the religion of God, and acting accordingly. Jews, Christians, and Muslims will join together in that struggle, in a spirit of respect for all beliefs and ideas and, by the will of God, enjoy definitive success. This is God's promise to all His believing servants, which will definitely come true.
At this point, a great responsibility falls on all true believers, no matter what their religion. Jews must not ignore Old Testament statements calling mankind to peace and tolerance, and they must call on all other Jews to oppose terrorism. So should Christians call on all other Christians, taking as their guide the morality most pleasing to God. One should not forget that terrorism stems from wrong ideas and the basic struggle against terrorism should be on the level of ideas. Believers must explain that these ideas are wrong, and that no idea can prevail by means of violence, oppression and cruelty; and despotism can never bring about beauty.
Terrorist ideology is built on sand. Its foundations can easily be swept away by mobilizing a proper education campaign. Sincere believers in all parts of the world can help end the ignorance that breeds terrorism by searching for solutions, writing books and articles, promoting educational activities and disseminating their own cultural heritage. The prevalence of tolerance, peace and security on the Earth, as commanded by God, will make terrorism disappear into the pages of history forever. Adopting a defeatist, pessimistic attitude in the face of terror is unacceptable. Our hope is that this suffering will not be repeated, and that all measures will be adopted to that end.
May God have mercy on those who died in those hateful attacks, and may He heal the injured. Our sincere condolences to all mankind. (For detailed information, please see Islam Denounces Terrorism and Only Love Can Defeat Terrorism by Harun Yahya)

If the Western world knew that the hadiths of the Prophet (pbuh) were coming true in the End Times, the entire community would become Muslim
If the Western world knew that the hadiths of the Prophet (pbuh) were coming true in the End Times, the entire community would become Muslim
If the Western world knew that the hadiths of the Prophet (pbuh) were coming true in the End Times, the entire community would become Muslim
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9TV dated September 15th, 2013
Twenty-two people have lost their lives in attacks in various cities of Iraq. These incidents are continuing uninterrupted in Iraq and Syria. They are even increasing. The Messenger of God (pbuh) says that “these incidents will continue until the appearance of my child Muhammad the Mahdi”. Our blessed Prophet (pbuh) describes him in great detail. This is a fine thing, masha’Allah. The events that will take place in the time of the Mahdi and his physical features are described separately. Down to the finest detail, masha’Allah.
This is a great miracle. Muslims would be amazed to see the name of God written in an animal they slaughter to eat. Or when they saw a sign on a stone.
Even if they saw any of the hadiths of our Prophet taking place indirectly they would describe it with great excitement. They even excitedly described things not in the hadiths.
Everything our Prophet (pbuh) said about the End Times is coming true in a breathtaking way. For example, 1400 years ago our Prophet said that two comets would appear. And two comets appeared just when he said it would. Knowing that alone would bring the world to its feet. But there is not a peep from the Islamic world. Our Prophet says that one comet will have a double tail and will travel in the opposite direction to other comets. This is a marvelous thing, something never seen before. This is the first time it has been seen. Science has never determined such a thing before.
Such a finding would bring the scientific world to its feet. And the Muslim world. But we hear not a word. People will talk about this in the future. When people see that such grave corruption, insensitivity and collapse of conscience never even occurred in the time of Pharaoh, they will say, “The End Times are really very severe.”
Our Prophet (pbuh) says it will not be like other comets, that it will travel in the opposite direction and will be very bright. How did our Prophet know these details? Masha’Allah. Through revelation. These features were seen for the first time in the comet Lulin. He says the comet will be two-tailed. How can a comet have two tails? It should only have one. Because when a thing burns it leaves a trail of smoke behind it. But if smoke also forms in front of it as it travels, that is something else again.
Our prophet says it is double-tailed, and that is just what happened. All religious institutions and scientific journals should be stunned by our Prophet foretelling that. But people are unmoved. It is unbelievable.
Our Prophet (pbuh) says the waters of the Euphrates will be stopped. And the waters of the Euphrates were stopped by a dam. Such a thing had never happened in the 10,000-year history of the Euphrates. It happened for the first time in the End Times. “And its basin will dry out,” he says. It has happened just like he said. But the world says not a word. There is not a peep in the Islamic world. Famous scholars and teachers show no reaction.
Neither do they say, “These things are not true.” They do not say anything at all. Our Prophet says, “There will be eclipses of the Sun and Moon 15 days apart in the month of Ramadan.” And that happened two years in succession, just as he said. But again, there was not a word.
Such a silence never occurred in the time of Nimrod or the time of Pharaoh. Pharaoh speaks when something happens, he brings it up. He admits that a marvel takes places when the Prophet Moses (pbuh) casts down his staff. He says that his people can do the same thing.
But these days, some of our brothers are completely unmoved. This is a great miracle. Future generations will be astounded. Our Prophet (saas) also reveals that religious scholars will conceal these matters. This is another miracle. He reveals they will conceal the subject of the Mahdi and the antichrist. Our Prophet (pbuh) says, “There will be no talk of the antichrist when the antichrist appears.” He says the antichrist will appear, but there will be no talk of the antichrist in sermons. Indeed, there used to be constant referenced to the antichrist in Ottoman times, right up to the time of Abdulhamid. People knew these things off by heart, But after the 1980s in particular, it was as if the religious scholars were in an alliance and suddenly began not talking about the Mahdi and the antichrist.
Only our Sheikh Nazim and his people speak of it. That is all. Since Sheikh Nazım is one of those foretold in the hadiths. Because our Prophet (pbuh) says, “An individual from inside a turban will foretell the Mahdi.” Sheikh Nazim is doing this, he and his followers. Sheikh Ahmed Yasin, Sheikh Adnan, Sheikh Hisham and Sheikh Mehmet Effendi, that is all.
The End Times are an extraordinary age, a marvelous age. What do they say will happen in the End Times? They never speak of the Mahdi. They are afraid. Speak of the miracles of our Prophet (pbuh). Why do you not speak of them? He said a two-tailed comet will appear. And it did. He says it will travel in the opposite direction, and it does. He also says the rains will cease before this comet comes. They say the rains have stopped due to global warming. But that was seen not to be the case. He says, “The rains will increase after the comet, and people will complain then that there is too much rain.” Now they talk about global cooling. So much for warming! Now they say it is cooling.
They are wriggling wretchedly. Their silence is also one of the main signs of the coming of the Mahdi. If they spoke, it would not be an omen of the Mahdi. The fact they conceal the antichrist is another portent. The fact they conceal the hadiths of our Prophet (pbuh) about the End Times is another portent of the coming of the Mahdi. Their writhing will soon come to an end. Then they will all begin speaking as a chorus. They will start wondering, “What were we thinking of?” Their foresight is clouded over for the moment.
They do not talk about one of the Prophet’s (pbuh) miracles. They discuss false hadiths never spoken by our Prophet. They never talk about miracles seen out in the open. They talk about nonsense. For example, our Prophet says, “He struck his foot on the ground, and the rock broke open. A 100-meter fissure opened up, and djinns flew up out of it.”
But they conceal visible miracles that science admits. What they want is nonsense. They talk about nonsense because they think people will laugh at it. They relate fabricated hadiths in order to ridicule our Prophet (pbuh), may God forbid. But they do not describe the true things. These are miracles that will honor the Prophet and confirm his status as a prophet. Everyone in the Western world would become Muslims if they heard about them. The heavens would open.
Look, the Guardian, a famous daily in Europe, carried a story titled “How did the Prophet foretell a two-tailed comet?” Millions of people believe. Just because of that.
Teachers and everyone try to cover this up. They are trying to depict the Islamic world as helpless and weak and wretched. They are trying to give the impression we have been defeated. This is an omen of the coming of the Mahdi.
The Mahdi is continuing to more forward step by step, as a vital force.

Faith, Unity, Discipline
The scroll supporting the shield in the state emblem of Pakistan contains Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah's motto in Urdu, which reads from right to left: (ایمان، اتحاد، نظم) "Īmān, Ittihād, Nazm" translated as "Faith, Unity, Discipline" and were intended as the guiding principles for Pakistan.
After death of Muhammad Ali Jinnah people of Pakistan forgot motto Faith, Unity, Discipline of their leader. Now “Faith” has been replaced with bigotry and fanaticism, “unity” with sectarian, ethnic and religious intolerance, and “discipline” with indulgence and lack of quality.
Why the founder of Pakistan, Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah gave this motto to nation? This motto could help nation of Pakistan in time of trials and tribulations but we used it as slogan only. We never tried to reach to the secret of this motto but always argued whether Quaid said “Faith, Unity, Discipline” or “Unity, Faith, Discipline”, and Quaid is secular or non-secular. In above picture this motto is written on side of Islamabad highway. Different governments swapped position of words “Faith“ and “Unity” many times at that place but never tried to know meaning of these words.
Three Great Duties
The secrete in these three words is that they are compatible with three great duties of Hazrat Imam Mahdi (as) mentioned by great Islamic scholar Bediuzzaman Said Nursi (ra) and survival of Pakistan in only in system of Imam Mahdi (as). Quaid-i-Azam may have given us these three words to recognize system of Hazrat Imam Mahdi (as) in time of trials and tribulations.
Bediuzzaman Said Nursi has said “Hazrat Mahdi (as) will have three great duties;” “it is Hazrat Mahdi (as) who will perform these three duties together and across the world”. In his works Bediuzzaman has stated that “the performance of these three duties together is one of the main signs in the recognition of Hazrat Mahdi (as)”.
Faith: The first of these duties is “intellectual struggle against materialist, Darwinist and atheist philosophies and the complete silencing of them intellectually.” i.e. correcting faith of people.
Unity: The second is, “the establishment of the Islamic Union by assuming the leadership of the Islamic world” i.e. unity among Muslim countries by establishing Islamic Union.
Discipline: The third is “the restoration of the moral values of the Qur’an and the Sunnah of our Prophet (saas) and causing these to rule across the world.” i.e. improving discipline and quality of life by restoring moral values of the Qur’an and the Sunnah of our Prophet (saas). Discipline always comes with adopting moral values and laws.
Bediuzzaman also said that these three duties had not been discharged together in his own time and that only Hazrat Mahdi (as) can do that:
These THREE QUALITIES BEING PRESENT AT ONE TIME IN ONE PERSON OR COMMUNITY, AND THEIR BEING PERFECT AND NOT IMPAIRING ONE ANOTHER SEEMS VERY REMOTE, OR EVEN IMPOSSIBLE. In the End Times, THEY CAN ONLY COME TOGETHER IN THE GREAT MAHDI AND THE COLLECTIVE PERSONALITY OF HIS COMMUNITY, WHO REPRESENT THE LUMINOUS COMMUNITY OF THE AHL AL-BAYT [the line of the Prophet (saas)].
(Kastamonu Addendum, p. 139)
....a guide, a kind of Mahdi and reformer comes in every century, BUT IN TERMS OF DISCHARGING EACH OF THESE THREE DUTIES, NONE HAVE RECEIVED THE TITLE OF THE GREAT MAHDI OF THE END TIMES.
(Emirdag Addendum, p. 260)
Solution to end Trials and Tribulations
Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah not only gave “Faith, Unity, Discipline” but also he followed these words. He was firm believer and always talked about unity. He was man of principle and never broke any law of British Empire. He never did civil disobedience and street march to blackmail government. His life was full of discipline and quality.
Today Pakistani nation is in many trials and tribulations as we never implemented “Faith, Unity, Discipline” in our lives. Only system of Mahdi can survive us and Pakistan is created only for system of Mahdi.
In 1947 Pakistan was created with faith on Allah almighty but today faith has been replaced by bigotry and fanaticism. Due to darwinist education, people adopted materialistic philosophies like socialism and communism in both East and West Pakistan which increased hatred.
Till 1971 hatred and lack trust were widely separated between political leaders and workers of East and West Pakistan. Bigotry of political leaders broke Pakistan and killed many innocents. Both sides didn’t like their pride to be broken and they take the side of the socialism and communism materialistic philosophies which created hatred between people. They forgot faith in religion which provides love, compassion, patience and humbleness.
Our esteemed master Sayed Muhammad Adnan Oktar (Harun Yahya) gave many solutions to increase faith.
Breaking Idols of Darwinism, Socialism, Capitalism and Communism intellectually:
Due to Darwinist education, people do not value one another
Darwinism is a State Policy for Communist Leaders
Socialism is the ideology of the false Messiah
Communism and Capitalism are two sons of Darwinism
We reply to those who say there is no more communism

Pakistan is created after a combined effort of Indian Muslims living in different part of India. They were different with each other by sects and languages but their objective was same. In short period of time they created an independent country for Indian Muslims. Many Christians also supported Pakistan Movment.
After creation of Pakistan nation did combined effort to resolve initial difficulties and establishing new country but this unity disintegrated and it is replaced with sectarian, ethnic and religious intolerance. From 1947 to the 1970, the governments of Pakistan were largely secular in policy and judgment and there were no major sectarian and ethnic problems. During socialist government, in 1973 five-year military conflict in Baluchistan (the largest province of Pakistan) has been started and in 1974 Anti-Ahmadiyya riots were occurred. After invation of Afghanistan by USSR in 1979, Pakistan was also affacted by evils of communism in form of radicalism and terrorism in 80's which disintegrated the unity. Corrupt governments in 90's weaken economy. After 9/11 war on terror increased the radicalism and terrorism beyond limits. Since the year 2000, over 2000 Shia Hazara community members including many women and children have been killed or wounded in attacks and Faisalabad and Gojra riots have been occurred against Christians.
Suicide attacks began occurring in Pakistan from 2002 onward. From 2002 to 2006, Pakistan experienced 21 suicide attacks and in the year 2007 alone this figure jumped up to 54. Within next four years figure of suicide attacks is increased to 273. Not only mosques of Shia and Sunni but also shrine of Sufis and Churches of Christians are targeted. Since March 2005, 209 people have been killed and 560 injured in 29 different terrorist attacks targeting shrines devoted to Sufi saints in Pakistan. These attacks are generally attributed to banned militant organizations. In March 2013, Muslims attacked a Christian neighborhood in Lahore, where more than 100 houses were burned after a Christian was alleged to have made blasphemous remarks. On September 2013, 75 Christians were killed in a suicide attack at the historic All Saints Church in the regional capital, Peshawar.

Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah believed that independence could only be achieved through constitutional means. He left the Congress party in 1920, while opposing civil disobedience movement of Congress. He never did any protest and broke any law to blakemail government. Discipline always come by following laws (constitution) and moral values. After death of Jinnah nation was unable to make any constitution for a long period. Till today Pakistani law is based upon the legal system of British India.
Pakistani nation is a talented nation, but without discipline all the talent we possess is ineffectual. We can see lack of displine in every field of life. All institutions have been effected by indiscipline as they lefted enfocing laws and regulations. It decreased the quality of life. Road accidents are highy in Pakistan due to lack of discipline. 12,000 people lose their lives annually to road accidents.
Challenging the writ of the government, creating chaos, disorder, plundering public and private property during protest rallies demonstrates lack of discipline. It is not way of Holy Prophet Muhammad (saas) and his companions (ra). Discipline can be improved by following and establishing moral values and laws of Holy Qur'an and Sunnah of Holy Prophet Muhammad (saas). It will improve quality of life and make our talent more effective.
