There can be no national awareness in young people who are ignorant of the scientific response to Darwinism and materialism
There can be no national awareness in young people who are ignorant of the scientific response to Darwinism and materialism (07.06.2014)
There can be no national awareness in young people who are ignorant of the scientific response to Darwinism and materialism
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9TV dated June 07th, 2014
- The Taliban have attacked Karachi airport in Pakistan. The fighting, in which 12 people have died, is said to be still going on.
Adnan Oktar: The Taliban’s attacks will never end. The Taliban are in charge there. Other communities are just guests. These things can never be ended. There is no other solution than education.
The Taliban provide what they think of as education. They educate the ignorant masses by ignorant means and win people over. It is the same with the PKK [terror group]. They take ignorant people away. They directly propagandize communism. The person they educate then thinks that communism is the truth of life. They give no other alternative. They allow none to be known. Yet those young people should be taught to give a rational response. What should you say? Darwin proposed a primitive theory, but science was weak in his day, 100 years ago. The evidence they point to is invalid. Let us give some examples. There are 600 million fully formed and complete fossils. They all prove creation. Do these young people know that? No. Are these fossils on display in public museums? No. They are all in stock rooms. What do we see in public museums? Signs on the doors saying, “You will see how life forms came into being through evolution.” The state is not telling the truth. It says you will see evidence from the micro-level to the macro-level. But you will not find any evidence inside. Someone who reads that sign will believe in evolution when he goes in. Dinosaurs are used as evidence of evolution. Dinosaurs are also perfect beings, from their cells to all their other systems.
- It is revealed in one verse that, “Rather We hurl the truth against falsehood and it cuts right through it and it vanishes clean away!”
Look, the truth has been covered up by superstition. My books about the invalidity of Darwinism and materialism are shattering superstition everywhere. Through learning and virtue.
Look, my brother, I have shown the easy way. I have shown the cause of the disease. Darwinist and materialist education produces communism. That is why they [the PKK terror organization in Turkey] think they are in the right. Young people need to be told that Darwinism and materialism are wrong. The state itself teaches Darwinism. This is a miracle, it is unbelievable. You are building something that will destroy you, but you fail to realize. You are constructing a system that will be a scourge for your own back, but you fail to see it. I am not saying that Darwinism should not be taught. Tell people about it. But let us describe how invalid it is, with scientific evidence. Then they wonder where this separatism came from. My brother, you have been teaching it day and night.
Turkish youth is not educated. If we had educated and aware young people in all our provinces, they would have debated with them and crushed them scientifically. Young people cannot argue. They cannot enter into debates with the PKK [terror organization]. You cannot do it with sticks and tanks and guns. In that case you will be saying, “I cannot deal with you through ideas, so I shall use a large stick instead.” When someone challenges you to a debate, you cannot argue scientifically. That is very easy.
- When anyone talks against Darwinism in Germany they say, “How can anything taught by the state be wrong?” It is also taught by the hand of the state in Turkey.
Then they ask if the state is lying to them. They ask if the state and universities are deceiving them. If you give universities and academies the task of telling people about Darwinism, if Darwinism is taught in thousands of public institutions, then what will become of the nation? Then they will wonder where the scourge came from. That is why God sends down the scourge. God will afflict you for what you have done. Because you say in Darwinist books that there is no creator. You say the universe came into being by chance. You educate young people to be Darwinists, so they behave as Darwinists. What is surprising in that? It is inconceivable to think that a Darwinist is not also a Marxist.
What are you saying? You say the universe started with evolution. You say that matter evolved. Then what do you say? You say that living things evolved and history evolved and then religions evolved. If [you teach that] history evolves, then you (the state that teaches Darwinism) accept Marx’s teachings and communism. So why do you shout and make a fuss? Marx says there was a first communal society and everything was held in common. He says that homes and women and everything were shared. Then pagan structures began emerging. Then feudal society and then capitalism. Now he says history is turning full circle and we are turning back to communist society, he says. He regards it as legitimate for them to resist since the capitalists are taking away their possessions. He says the only way is to crush their resistance. In this way there will be a communal society again, he says. Everyone who signs up to evolution has to sign up to that. Isn’t that right?
If there is evolution at the beginning, if living things evolve, if history evolves, then you go along with what the communists say. They say there is no religion. That religions are fabrications, may God forbid. We say, on the basis of the Qur’an, that God created them. But you (the state that teaches Darwinism) say not. You say the Qur’an is not true. Official books say the Qur’an is not true. If there is no religion, you have signed up to communism. So why all the fuss? If you accept religion, then when Darwinism is criticized scientifically, you have to tell people of that criticism. If not, communism will prevail. And you will be in a wretched position. You can respond to Darwinism with the signs leading to faith and the miracles of the Qur’an. The existence of God is explicitly seen. The proponents of evolution are hypnotizing you. They say there is no God. And you say, “If you say so, then there is no God (May He forbid).” You agree that religions came into being through evolution. So why be surprised when communism grows in the country?
They underestimated Darwinism and regarded it as a simple matter. Do you not see where it is leading the country? If the state and the PKK are teaching Darwinism with all their might, how can we strive against that? Assuming we fight the PKK, what are we to say to the state? The state is actively engaged in Darwinist education. The state’s Darwinist education must be stopped. It is a grave danger.

Hadiths inform us about 'great terror and red death' in Syria
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9TV dated June 14th, 2014
(Hadith) “Amirul Momineen (a.s.) said: “When the two spears (two armies) disagree in Shaam, it will not come to an end except with a sign of Allah.” He was asked: “What is it, O Amirul Momineen (a.s.)?” He said: “It is an earthquake in Shaam, by which more than a hundred thousand people will perish. Allah will make it as mercy to the believers and torment upon the disbelievers. When that occurs, you will see the riders of gray horses with yellow banners coming from the West until they stop at Shaam. There will be great terror and red death. Then you will see the sinking of one of the villages of Damascus called Harasta. Then the son of the livers-eater will come out of the Yabis valley to sit on the pulpit of Damascus. After that you expect the appearance of the Mahdi (a.s.).”
There are some photographs. The hadith inform about this “great terror and red death.” In the photographs there are communist banners. As is related in the haidth, the banner of the PKK is also yellow, just as is depicted in the hadith. The uniforms of the PKK are also grey, as the hadith informs.
Adnan Oktar: As you see their clothes are grey and their banners are yellow.
(Hadith) I asked him, “When will Hazrat Mahdi (as) appear?” He said, “When armies are seen in the Anbar province of Iraq, on the banks of the Tigris and Euphrates, when the dome of Kufa is demolished, when some houses in Kufa are burned. Once you see these, God will make the appearance of the one He wills –Hazrat Mahdi (as) – happen. No one can hinder God’s command. And no one can ever change His provision.”
There was a picture about Kufa, teacher. The Mosque of Kufa.
Adnan Oktar: Repeat the hadith.
It happened just as how our Prophet (saas) foretold. There the armies got into a fight with one another. Our Prophet (saas) foretold that the dome of the Kufa mosque would be demolished. They ruined the dome with mortar shell. We also saw houses being burned. They were all razed to the ground. Our Prophet (saas) tells this as an attribute of the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as).
- Teacher, 1,400 years ago our Prophet (saas) foretold the current incidents precisely. In the hadith the incidents experienced in our day are being spoken of and they are stated as the portents of the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (as). I want to read the hadith together with some photographs.
(Hadith) Amirul Momineen (a.s.) said: “Await the appearance of Imam Qaim (as) following the occurrence of three portents.” They asked: “What are these signs?” The disagreement among Syrians...”
Adnan Oktar: The disagreement among Syrians is a portent of the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (as). That means that what I have said is accurate.
- The appearance of the ones with black banners in Horosan and fear in the month of Ramadan.
(Assad Bombed a Mosque in the month of Ramadan)
In another hadith it is said, “Hazrat Mahdi (as) does not appear as long as Harasta is ruined. In 2012 some conflicts were experienced in Harasta.”
Adnan Oktar: Our Prophet (saas) foretold everything one by one. He told the name of the mosque, its location (The Kufa Mosque). It is amazing that Almighty God revealed it to our Prophet (saas) and it occurred just as it was told. On the other hand there are some new scholars who constantly shout out loud that Hazrat Mahdi (as) will not appear. Don’t be afraid! The issue of the system of the Mahdi will lessen neither your salary nor your seniority. Why do you feel so excited if Hazrat Mahdi (as) will not come? Every day they say that Hazrat Mahdi (as) will not come. We say, “OK, we understood” but they still come out and say, “Hazrat Mahdi (as) will not come.” We can not understand why they feel so excited.
The hadith referring to ISIS, that black banners would appear from the East (June, 2014)

THE HADITH REFERRING TO ISIS, THAT BLACK BANNERS WOULD APPEAR FROM THE EAST
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversations on A9TV dated June 12th, 2014
(Hadith): Our Prophet (saas) told; “Black banners of Ibn Abbas appear from the East.” That is to say, among the Arabs those with black banners appear.
After they proceed for a while, again this time a smaller group with black banners appear from the East (the Middle East). They fight against a man from the descend of Abu Sufyan and come under the obedience of Hazrat Mahdi.” Who is Sufyan? Assad. Hafez Assad. Notice that it is said “...fighting against someone from the descend of Sufyan”, see how clear it is, right? “They come under the obedience of Hazrat Mahdi.” At the end, they abide by Hazrat Mahdi (as). Otherwise if that power were leaderless, that would devastate the world but because they will come under the obedience of Hazrat Mahdi (as), the problem would be settled.
First al-Qaida’s black flags appeared, the big black banners. Now, they are smaller, again from East, “...this time small black banners appear and fighting against someone from the descend of Sufyan”, right now this is already happening, “...they come under the obedience of Hazrat Mahdi.”
I said everything is related with Hazrat Mahdi (as), and they feigned ignorance about it.
(Hadith) [Another hadith] “Await for the reappearance of the awaited one on three occasions.” Notice that our Prophet (saas) says, “Await for the reappearance of the awaited one on three occasions.” “He was asked what those three occasions are:” “Our Prophet (saas) replied: Syrians fight among themselves” This is the first one. "There is a fight among the Syrians. Many groups in Syria can’t get along, the they fight. “When black flags arrive” and “when there is terror and fear in the month of Ramadan” How many days left to the month of Ramadan now? So they are all true.
Our Prophet (saas) tells the truth.
(Hadith) “Related from Muhammad ibn Hanaffiya:” Muhammad ibn Hanaffiya is my grandfather as you know in the lineage. He is the son of Hazrat Ali. My lineage goes back to him. “Black flags will appear. Then another group of black banners with black caps and white dresses will appear.” As you may have noticed, they all have black caps. They wear black and their clothes are white but they have black caps. “They will defeat Sufyan’s friends.” Right now Sufyan has already been defeated. Syria is razed to the ground. “Ultimately they will arrive at Bayt Al-Muqaddas, and they will prepare the governance for Hazrat Mahdi (as).”
Whatever our Prophet (saas) foretold, they all come true.
Our Prophet (saas) foretold that as as a portent of Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) appearance, Iraq would be divided into three.
Kirkuk came entirely under the grip of Peshmerga. Kurds are celebrating [this incident]. It seems that Iraq is being technically divided into three: Kurdistan, Sunni and Shia.
Our Prophet (saas) says that Iraq would be divided in the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as), as a portent of the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (as). I wrote this 25 years ago in my book. That Iraq would be divided into three.
ISIS wants the devastation of Iraq like Syria
Barack Obama said that he does not exclude any group in providing help to Iraq. In case any security concerns related to his country arise, they are ready for military intervention. The rooting of such a radical structure in Syria and Iraq is not in favor of the USA.
Obama must start explaining the issue of the system of the Mahdi. He should not wait until radicalism harms him. They always avoid it. What can they accomplish by avoidance? Radicalism is getting hold of them.
What they mean by intervention is launching airstrikes. Not sending any troops there.
Air strikes are what ISIS wants. Syria ruined its own country. ISIS also wants Iraq to ruin its own country. They want the devastation of buildings; that destruction already devastates the people in the spiritual sense. The people leave the city and they acquire a spirit of war.
Those who assume Islam to be a lifestyle peculiar to ISIS cause harm to Islam
They assume Islam to be a cruel religion made up of ugly women and men, a religion ordering the chopping up of people, shooting them with machine guns as ISIS does, preventing people from going out, depriving them of their freedom. This mindset does not allow women to laugh, or to use perfume. They have devastated Islam with this mindset. We are trying to purge this scourge. We are cleansing what you ruin.
I have said many times that the solution to radical Islam is the system of the Mahdi
Almighty God adorns Turkey day by day. The number of mosques are increasing. The Islamic communities are expanding. But [first and foremost] Almighty God started to make us feel the existence of the system of Mahdi clearly. I said that radical Islam, that is the kind of Islam based on the hadith, would choke you and you won't be able to cope with it. They did not care at all. They are now terrified. Radicalism is snowballing all over the world now. This scourge will end only by the system of the Mahdi.
The appearance of the ones with black banners is a portent and Hazrat Mahdi (as). In the hadith collections there are hundreds of hadith referring to them. The appearance of black banners, and they all come about as it is related.

Adnan Oktar Says
The main characteristic of the Mahdi (pbuh) is that he is a man of love. The one who enables peace, justice and love is the Mahdi (pbuh). One should keep away from those who talk about fighting. One should keep away from those who preach bloodshed.(A9 TV; June 13th, 2014)

Mr. Adnan Oktar comments on
ISIS (Iraq Syria Islamic State) taking the consulate staff as hostages
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9TV dated June 11,12,13 th, 2014
Teacher, 900 people of ISIS (Iraq Syria Islamic State) raided our consulate in Mosul.
Today at noon time. They took 48 people - including our consul general -as hostages. It is reported that three of the hostages are children, 15 of them are consulate staff and 30 of them are members of special forces. No conflicts came into existence. It is reported that the hostages are in good health. It is said that the hostages have been arrested by ISIS and they are kept in the Mosul Governorship.
What is their intention?
- They demand $5 million for each truck driver who had been previously taken as hostage. In return for the people taken as hostages from the consulate, they demand the release of arrested ISIS members.
What does Turkey think about it?
- Chief of staff, the Prime Minister, the President and the Undersecretary of the National Intelligence Agency held a meeting. At the end of the meeting it was declared that necessary initiatives will be taken for the diplomats and special forces staff. NATO held an extraordinary meeting about the issue. The US declared that they will provide whatever backup Turkey may ask for. The Turkish Prime Minister had a telephone conversation with the Vice President of the US for one and a half hours.
The US states that they can provide backup but does not get involved, right? NATO can not intervene Iraq and Syria. Only if an attack is made against Turkey they can intervene. NATO considers this as an internal issue of Iraq.
- Teacher, the Turkish consulate is considered as Turkish land. In this case this is considered an attack on a NATO member, Turkey.
Why does NATO wait then?
- They held a meeting.
Then they are assessing the situation. As I understand it, ISIS want to get into some adventure. These are all the footsteps of the system of the Mahdi. God shows that there is no solution other than the Mahdi. Even if NATO or any other entity comes, there will not be any solution other than the Mahdi. The US could not cope with these, so how can NATO ? To say it clearly, the US avoids this. They say, “Let’s not get involved in this.”
It is unbecoming to resist about the system of the Mahdi. If you establish the Unity of Islam and make Hazrat Mahdi (as) lead it, is there any necessity to tell how all these issues will be solved? They will be solved just at that moment. Other than that there will be no solutions.
Teacher, Turkey declared that in order to receive the hostages without resorting to any violence, contacts are made with Saudi Arabia and the tribes there.
ISIS also extorts from those tribes. Seeing it as a source of money, ISIS may soon also enter Saudi Arabia. ISIS has grown extremely wealthy. They have looted all the banks in Iraq.
Their most important income is the money they receive in return for hostages. They received $18 million USD for the four French journalists released last week.
They have no problems regarding money or no problems regarding arms. They also have no problems about finding looter soldiers. There is no solution other than the system of the Mahdi. They have no solution other than the system of the Mahdi.
The tribes in Iraq are supporting ISIS, teacher.
They are forced to do so. ISIS puts the members of tribes into line and and they tell one by one that they must abide by them [ISIS]. They shout, “I obey ISIS and I am subject to this state. If I do otherwise, what is necessary can be executed.” They don’t leave anyone who does not obey them. Once they are subject to ISIS, everything come under the service of ISIS. They also recruit the members of tribe and make them soldiers.
I repeat again, there is no solution other than the system of the Mahdi. Those who feign ignorance will ultimately ask for Hazrat Mahdi (as). They will shout, demanding the Unity of Islam There is no other solution. America, France, England, they are all obliged for this.
Teacher, ISIS acts as a state there. They distribute the electricity and open schools. It is stated that the local people have accepted this situation.
Of course they distribute food and money to the people.
Teacher, before ISIS was affiliated to al-Qaida but for the last one year they carry out their acts individually because of the disagreement they have.
Soon ISIS will ask al-Qaida to be affiliated to it or they may be willing to act from two branches. Especially for those unemployed people who have nothing to do; they have things to do now. They sought a solution other than the system of the Mahdi. They are holding meetings one after another but no solution comes about. There is no solution other than the system of the Mahdi.
- Teacher, ISIS proceeds south in Iraq. They have held control over Tikrit and started to march towards Kirkuk. Maliqi stated that he will form an army against ISIS.
The members of the army established by Maliqi would also pass to the side of ISIS. They distribute weapons to the people. Maliqi assumes that the problem can be settled without faith and the Qur'an. He believes that struggle with weapons would be sufficient.
- Teacher, the soldiers of the Iraqi army joined ISIS. Saddam’s four former commanders are commanding ISIS.
They want them to have faith in communists and they go by. They put them to test and execute those who do not know how to pray and the tenets of Islam right away. ISIS burns PKK members with gas without any interrogation. That is, they do not have a method that abides by Islam and the Qur'an. God shows all of them that the sole solution is the system of the Mahdi. Nobody remains who does not see that.
- Teacher it is estimated that the military forces of ISIS in Iraq has reached six or seven thousand people. It is estimated that ISIS has around 10 thousand armed members in Syria.
10 thousand, 20 thousand. All tribes will join. People tend to join the powerful side. They also hand out money. This pleases the people there.
Teacher it is stated that from the grassroots, ISIS has 100,000 supporters in Iraq.
Their supporters can increase to 300,000 . They should say out in the open that the system of the Mahdi is the solution. They should say that the Unity of Islam is the solution. I have said this; God will make the system of the Mahdi reign by His beautiful Name, the al-Jabbar. They said that I am talking in vain. There is no other solution. I said that God will do it by force.
Teacher, lately Maliqi took a stance against Sunnis. The current ISIS movement is also called the Sunni rebellion.
There are so many Sunnis in the region. There are so many Sunnis in Iraq and Syria but this is not an issue of Sunni and Shia. There people think that they have gotten a profession and also gained some booty. Meanwhile they express the brutal feelings in their hearts because there are some brutal people among them who have been raised as Darwinists and materialists. Some, on the other hand, say that this needs to be done in the name of religion and Islam. The day the Unity of Islam is established, the issue will be solved. Other than that the incidents would further escalate. This is not an issue that can be handled by tanks or cannons. If they wish, they can try but it wouldn’t work out. The Unity of Islam and the Mahdi is needed under all circumstances. If they pretend not to understand, God will compel them until they understand.
They don’t take any threat seriously. Tanks or cannons would not scare them. If buildings are destroyed by Turkish artillery, the war sites would be established. Indeed, when cities are totally ruined, they move more comfortably. They don’t want to leave the cities intact. Consequently even if Turkish bombardment were done, they would withdraw somewhere else and try to exhaust their opposing forces.
Weapons would not solve the problems. Turkey is a small country. Syria had the biggest army in the region, but it is in pieces now. Iraq had the third biggest army in the world and now it is demolished. Only faith will defeat them.
Is the location where the hostages are held apparent?
- Yes, they are in the governor’s office in Mosul.
But carrying out an operation against that building would be very dangerous. [In that case] nobody would survive. Operations will not deliver any results. Only by the system of the Mahdi can accomplishments be made. There is no love other than the system of the Mahdi; there is only blood, violence, conflicts. The taste of Islam cannot be felt. Only fear thrives. Pain thrives. People are influenced negatively and nothing else comes about.
Bediuzzaman says: " Our enemies advocate poverty, ignorance and conflict.” Ignorance, that is, lack of knowledge. These people [radicals] advocate what the Qur'an does not tell. The Qur'an does not tell them to shoot everyone passing by. Almighty God does not tell them to chop off people’s heads and play football with them. Is such an understanding of Islam acceptable?
One verse of the Qur'an reads: "You are not a dictator over them. So remind, with the Qur’an, whoever fears My Threat."
Sure, let’s pray that God guides these people. One pities these people and the people there.
There is no compulsion in Islam. In no way does it exist. According to the Qur'an, “You have your religion and I have my religion.” One can never intervene in other’s religion. Islam is only offered, and a person either accepts it or not, but imposition is never acceptable. Our mere efforts would not put an end to ignorance. What needs to be accomplished is to unite the Islamic world and make Hazrat Mahdi (as) lead this unity.
Then issues will be settled in a matter of minutes or seconds.
Releasing the hostages would be beneficial to ISIS; they will understand what I mean later.
I repeat it again, so that they should not say, “He has not warned us before.” They should release those hostages immediately. They can’t obtain any results with what they are committing now. Every passing day works against them. They will understand what I mean later. They should heed my warnings from the beginning. They should release the hostages quickly and with courtesy.
Teacher, meanwhile it is related that in Mosul the Armenian church is bombed by ISIS.
With this mindset they have they put on both churches and synagouges on fire. Their outlook on the Qur'an is different. They believe that they are carrying out a jihad now. They are convinced that they are acting in compliance with the Qur'an.
They should heed my words about releasing the hostages.
Teacher, following the incidents in Mosul Mr. Bahçeli made the following statement:
“In order to protect and watch over our Turkmen, all options, including resorting to arms, must be considered.” He said that they will back any intervention that will be carried out for Turkmens.
Turkmens, Arabs, Kurds. There are Kurdish children there. There are Arab children with curly hair. There are apple-cheeked Turkish children. They are all so cute. We need to save them all. It is not acceptable to save only the Turks and leave the Arabs. It is not acceptable to save Arabs and leave the Kurds. They are all the sons of Prophet Adam. We will save them all.

Incidents of looting show the scale of moral collapse
There is a disease that has plagued the world for the last hundred years. Lovelessness! This sickness, the result of the imposition of materialist teachings, affects all sections of society. Lovelessness, and the ruthlessness and lack of empathy that result from it lead to moral collapse. The incidents of looting that have taken place in recent months reveal the scale of that moral collapse. People across the world organize lawful or unlawful protests and marches to criticize policies and forms of administration in their own countries and to demand their rights; but acts of looting during such protests are a disgrace.
One example of this disgrace happened in Brazil. People began protesting against the ongoing economic crisis and the Brazilian government’s social policies in the country last June. In particular, the fact that Brazil was to host the World Cup led people to take to the streets. Some Brazilians are of the opinion that it is a mistake for money that should be spent on public services to be spent on World Cup projects instead.
Major acts of looting took place during these protests. Stores and shops are robbed in broad daylight due to the security void caused by the police going on strike. In an effort to stop the looting, the government is sending troops to the regions involved.
In fact, these acts of looting are an important example for understanding and exposing the moral collapse across the world. We know that acts of looting have taken place in many countries in the past in conditions of turmoil, when technical facilities are interrupted and security cannot be maintained.
A major electricity outage occurred in America and Canada in 2003. That outage paralyzed life in major cities such as New York, Detroit, Cleveland, Ottawa and Toronto. Acts of looting occurred when security measures failed as the sun set and darkness fell. An even worse and more thought-provoking event happened in the USA in 1977.
On July 13th, 1977, electricity in New York went down for 25 hours; ten minutes after the outage, not a shop remained in the Bronx, Manhattan, Brooklyn or Harlem that had not been looted. Food, clothing and furniture stores were looted, and the looting went on until power was restored the next day. The damage was put at $1 billion, two people died and more than 3,700 looters were arrested.
Major looting across the country began in Argentina when the security forces went on strike in 2013. Hundreds of people were injured and the national economy suffered major damage in the looting that began when police in 17 out of 23 cities stopped work.
Similar events to those in Argentina and Brazil took place in the British capital, London, in 2011. Major disturbances broke out with the killing of a young black British man and several large stores were looted in the ensuing turmoil. Wealthy areas such as Notting Hill and Ealing were looted.
A different example of moral breakdown occurred in the Philippines last year. Numerous markets and aid organization warehouses were looted in the wake of a typhoon that struck the country in 2013. The interesting thing is that statements about acts of looting expressed irrational and shallow opinions such as these acts being caused by poverty, hunger, lack of water and opportunism.
Looking at these incidents, a very terrible picture emerges. Countries such as America, Great Britain and Canada are among the few that come to mind when peace, justice, order and security are mentioned; yet public order can disintegrate when the slightest turmoil or security weakness develops. Adequate military power and advanced technological means certainly do not prevent outcomes in which human values are rejected, such as theft and looting and destruction.
The events taking places in countries where looting is seen are analyzed in the context of cause and effect; there is a seriously mistaken perspective to the effect that such illegal activities are natural in the event of disasters or technical interruptions. Materialist analyses are offered by saying that despair, hunger, lack of water and opportunism cause such incidents and unethical incidents are, knowingly or otherwise, given a legitimate basis but nobody ever says that such illegal activities stem from moral deprivation and lovelessness.
The fact is that God recommends justice, love, compassion, patience and reason. Someone in possession of the moral values of God will never loot property belonging to someone else in times of hunger, thirst or despair. He will not regard the events or turmoil taking place as an opportunity to enrich himself illegally and will not regard property belonging to someone else as legitimate; he will know that this is a great crime in the Sight of God.
What needs to be done is to explain that all mankind has a Creator and that people will be held to account for their deeds after their deaths. Human love will naturally spread in communities that are bound to the love of God, and such unlawful incidents will never take place, no matter how dire the circumstances.

God reveals that we will only be held to account in terms of the Qur’an, but the fanatics say it is no good without the hadiths
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9TV dated May 21th, 2014
Adnan Oktar: Verse 31 of Surat an-Nur speaks of women’s freedom. They have only just realized this. Look, they say not a word. They were terrified when they saw that. Some of them are saying, ‘If that is what this verse means, then I am irreligious.’ There is someone who claims to be a religious scholar who says that quite explicitly. ‘If that is what this verse means, then I am irreligious,’ he says.
- In another verse God says, “They invented monasticism.. but even so they did not observe it as it should have been observed’’
Adnan Oktar: Of course, God says, ‘We did not prescribe it [monasticism] for them’ They invented it for themselves. They do not abide by the traditional, orthodox faith. I am only referring to some of them of course.
Bülent Sezgin: In one verse God says, ‘We have made the Qur’an easy to remember. But is there any rememberer there?’
Adnan Oktar: "He does not desire difficulty for you" says Almighty God. "God desires ease for you; He does not desire difficulty for you.” The traditionalist faith is built upon difficulty. I ask them what it would be like if everyone lived by the Qur’an. I even asked one of them what he would do on a desert island if only the Qur’an were available. He had a long think… so the Qur’an is sufficient, he said. He was asking whether one can be a Muslim with the Qur’an alone. He said there would be some things missing in Islam in that case. There would be things missing in prayer and other areas, he said. He never answered my question. My brothers can ask other fanatics that question. Is it possible to live as a Muslim on a desert island with only the Qur’an? They say it is not possible.
Aylin Kocaman: In another verse God says, ‘Or do they have partners who have laid down a religion for them for which God has not given any authority?. They are building a sharia law that is not in the faith.
Adnan Oktar: They produce commandments that God never spoke and are inventing a new religion. Fethullah Gülen says, ‘A perversion called the Islam of the Qur’an has appeared. ’In other words, people who say the Qur’an is sufficient are perverse. Everyone said the Qur’an was sufficient in the time of the Companions. So in Gülen's opinion, what do these words of the Companions mean? There were no hadiths in the time of the Companions. There was no abiding by the hadiths. Everyone abided by the Qur’an. The Companions took the Qur’an with them when they went to preach, and that is all. They preached with the Qur’an. God says we will be held to account solely with the Qur’an in the hereafter. We will only be questioned with the Qur’an. But according to Fethullah Hodja that is perversion. Look, he says, ‘A perversion called the Islam of the Qur’an has appeared.’ He speaks of the ‘scholars of the customary faith,’ not of the Qur’an. He says the Qur’an needs the hadiths more than the hadiths need the Qur’an. He says the Qur’an needs the hadiths. He says the Qur’an is unimportant without the hadiths. He says the Qur’an will have no or little effect without them. He says the Qur’an has no function without the hadiths. But he says the hadiths have no need of the Qur’an. He says there is a greater need for hadiths than for the Qur’an. He says the Qur’an is not indispensible. Saying that the Qur’an needs the hadiths is equivalent to saying that the Qur’an is invalid without them.
Gökalp Barlan: In one verse God says, " Am I to desire someone other than God as a judge when it is He Who has sent down the Book to you clarifying everything? "
Adnan Oktar: Look, "Am I to desire someone other than God as a judge". In this case an arbiter other than God is being sought. "when it is He Who has sent down the Book to you clarifying everything?" He says. These people are saying the Qur’an is not clear, that we cannot understand it. So what is the Qur’an then? Let them go and ask the fanatics whether they could live as a Muslim on an island with only the Qur’an? They will say you cannot. The Companions would chase these people away if they could hear them. It is unbelievable.
Bülent Sezgin: God says in another verse, " This Qur’an guides to the most upright Way."
Adnan Oktar: The Qur’an leads to the true path. In the traditionalist orthodox conception of Islam you have to recite the Qur’an with the right pronunciation. The Abyssinians read it and the Iranians read it. However a person reads it, that is the right way. Minor quibbles prevent people from praying. A language that makes things difficult is wrong. The whole nation knows Surah Fatiha, but 99% or 99.9% cannot recite it properly. This a prayer heeded in the Sight of God. It is accepted by God because it is made sincerely. For example, the word ‘come’ is pronounced differently with a Black Sea accent or an Istanbul. But both are valid. Almighty God knows that person’s intention. It is therefore very wrong to turn people away from praying by insisting on reciting things with no mistakes.
(Viewer’s question) How should we apply the command to obey God and His Messenger in verse 59 of Surat an-Nisa’?
What does obeying God and His Messenger mean? Means obeying to the Qur'an. What does abiding by the Qur’an mean? Could the messenger tell you not to pray? No. He reveals to you the commands of the Qur’an. Almighty God says that he also has a duty to abide by the Qur’an. The prophet (pbuh) has to obey the Qur’an. Almighty God says, " If he had made up any sayings and ascribed them to Us, We would have seized him by force, and then We would have cut off his life-blood and not one of you could have protected him." What else would you like Almighty God to say? He is quite explicit, but they fail to understand. Look, God speaks to them in a language they can understand. He says He will tear out Prophet's jugulars. He says He will tear out the Prophet’s (pbuh) jugular if he tries to make any addition to the Qur’an or take anything from it or put something from himself in it. God says that nobody will be able to save him, but people still fail to understand. Obedience to the Prophet (pbuh) as a commander-in-chief and as a religious leader is obligatory. Obedience to all the prophets is obligatory, not just to the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). This is a command to obey those in authority. Everything the Prophet (pbuh) says is to be obeyed, but he cannot make any new commandments. He cannot produce a commandment that is not in the Qur’an. He has no authority to change the Qur’an. Our Prophet (pbuh) has to obey what was revealed.
Aslı Sume: God says of the Prophet (pbuh) in another verse, " nor does he [Muhammad] speak from whim. It is nothing but Revelation revealed,"
Adnan Oktar: Masha’Allah. What does that mean? The Qur’an. Revelation means the Qur’an.
Gökalp Barlan: Verse 51 of Surat al-An’am says, " I follow nothing except what is revealed to me. I fear, were I to disobey my Lord, the punishment of a Dreadful Day.’"
Adnan Oktar: What is revealed appears in the Qur’an. You cannot have secret revelation. You cannot have secret commandments. If it is God’s command, God will put it in the Qur’an. They say that God did not put something in the Qur’an. So where is it? It was written on a leaf, but a goat ate it, they say. Ask where the leaf is, and they say a goat ate it. Even assuming that the goat ate it, did the Companions not memorize the Qur’an? He would put it in the Qur’an. Such a thing is impossible. If you did such a thing then the Companions would all come down on you.
Aylin Kocaman: In one verse God says; "It is not right for any human being that God should give him the Book and Judgment and Prophethood, and then that he should say to people, ‘Be worshippers of me rather than God.’ Rather he will say, ‘Be people of the Lord because of your knowledge of the Book and because you study.’ "
Adnan Oktar: Look, on the basis of the Qur’an. "Be people of the Lord because of your knowledge of the Book and because you study.’" He says. The prophet does not refer to himself. He does not say he will come up with new revelations and new commandments. He says he obeys the commandments of God and that we must all obey this book.
It is unbelievable how they fail to understand this. It is a miracle. Someone says, ‘The Prophet changed the commandments in the Qur’an.’ ‘Is he not a prophet? So he can do it,’ they say. I ask where they get that idea from. 'Abu Hanifa said so,’ they say. We look at the hadiths of Imam Shafi, and he says ‘What Abu Hanifa says is a lie.’ Imam Maliq says, 'What they both say is wrong. There is only one true account, and that is what I say.’ And Imam Hanbal says, ‘All three are mistaken, only I speak the truth.’
Do you not see? The four schools all have different commandments. The four all contradict one another. They all say the others are lying. The rules about prayer differ in the four schools. Reading Surah Fatiha is obligatory in some, but not in others. That is a very different thing. The rules about the last two complete sets differ, the rules about lawful foods differ. What is lawful in one is unlawful in another. Imam Hanbal says that Imam Hanifa’s hadiths are false. Imam Hanifa says someone else’s hadiths are false. Which one should we believe? They do not heed the Qur’an, all four depart from the faith. These are four separate beliefs.
Oktar Babuna: In one verse God says, "those who split up their religion, and form into sects, each faction exulting in what they have."
Adnan Oktar: They all say they had attained salvation.

Muslims’ suffering is due to some Muslims who does not regard the Qur’an as sufficient (21.05.2014)
Muslims’ suffering is due to some Muslims who does not regard the Qur’an as sufficient
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9TV dated May 21th, 2014
Gökalp Barlan: God says this in one verse, I seek shelter from the accursed satan; "Among them is a group who distort the Book with their tongues so that you think it is from the Book when it is not from the Book. They say, ‘It is from God,’ but it is not from God. They tell a lie against God and they know it."
Adnan Oktar: Could you repeat that?
Gökalp Barlan: "Among them is a group who distort the Book with their tongues so that you think it is from the Book.”
Adnan Oktar: They say something, and you ask where did you get that from? I am speaking from the Qur’an, he says. They say the hadiths already say something. Have you gone crazy, my brother? You say things are in the Qur’an and then in the hadiths. If they are in the Qur’an, then point to the verses.
“It makes no difference if something is in the Qur’an or the hadiths, they are one and the same,” they say. My brother, you have made it up, it is a fabrication. The Qur’an is the word of God.
Gökalp Barlan: Yet they say it is not from that book.
Adnan Oktar: But this is not the command of the Qur’an and not that of God.
Ender Ataç: Another verse says, "..We bring you the truth and the best of explanations. "
Adnan Oktar: Look, in verse 51 of Surat al-‘Ankabut God says, "Is it not enough for them that We have sent down to you the Book which is recited to them?“
Do you know what they say? “It is not enough, not enough at all.” “The Qur’an is of no value without the hadiths,” they say. If we compare the Qur’an and the hadiths, are the hadiths by themselves sufficient,” one asks. “Yes,” they say. “Is the Qur’an sufficient by itself?” “No.”
“They say, “If you act in the light of the Qur’an you will go wrong, but if you act in the light of the hadiths alone you will be saved.”
So why have you been so devastated? Look, "Is it not enough for them that We have sent down to you the Book which is recited to them?“ says God. These people say that it is not sufficient.
Look, verse 116 of Surat an-Nahl, "Do not say about what your lying tongues describe…’ do not produce false hadiths, in other words, do not say “This is lawful and this is unlawful.”
You ask whether this is unlawful according to the Qur’an, and they say, “Of course it is not unlawful according to the Qur’an.”
Look, I met an orthodox Muslim type the other day. “On the basis of the Qur’an a very simple form of faith emerges. Everything is too easy. So there will be no faith left,” he said.
He says that there will be no faith left, that it will all be too easy. What kind of religion would that be, he says.
Look, he has invented a religion off the top of his own head, then he looks for that in the Qur’an. When he cannot find it, he rejects the Qur’an. I look for the faith I have invented in the Qur’an, and if I cannot find it there, then the Qur’an is invalid, he is saying.
Gökalp Barlan: There is another verse in which God says, “Say: ‘Do you presume to teach God your religion”
Adnan Oktar: They have the presumption to try and teach God religion and moral values.
Adnan Oktar: Find the verses about the sufficiency of the Qur’an, and let us read them. People must reflect on these. They never wonder why the Muslim world has been so devastated. Yet the fact they do not regard the Qur’an as sufficient is concrete evidence, isn’t it?
Why should God destroy you if you read the Qur’an. God says that if people abide by the Qur’an, He will not destroy them. But you have been ruined. So, my brother, you should be reflecting on what you have done. You have not abided by the Qur’an. You did not regard the Qur’an as sufficient, so you have been ruined.
That is why Afghanistan has been devastated and why Iraq has been devastated. It is why Syria and Libya have been devastated. The whole Muslim world has been made wretched.
And lovelessness and selfishness prevail across the world.
Bülent Sezgin: In another verse, God says; " When they are told, ‘Follow what God has sent down to you,’ They say, ‘We are following what we found our fathers doing.’"
Adnan Oktar: Tradition. Traditions from their forefathers.
Bülent Sezgin: " What, even though their fathers did not understand a thing and were not guided!
Adnan Oktar: My brother, why go along with your forefathers if they did not abide by the Qur’an? They did wrong. Are you ancestors more truthful, or the Qur’an? They say their forefathers cannot make a mistake. Can the Qur’an make a mistake? They should say that ‘God, forgive us’ and that the Qur’an cannot make a mistake.
They say their forefathers cannot make a mistake. My brother, your ancestor has made a mistake, and that is why you are in such trouble.
The Qur’an cannot be in error. God cannot be in error.
Kartal Göktan: In another verse, God says; "When Our Clear Signs are recited to them, those who do not expect to meet Us say, ‘Bring a Qur’an other than this one or change it.’ Say: ‘It is not for me to change it of my own accord. I follow nothing except what is revealed to me. I fear, were I to disobey my Lord, the punishment of a Dreadful Day.’"
Adnan Oktar: Look, they add things to the Qur’an or take bits out. They are doing the same thing now. They have added things to the Qur’an and taken other things out, and they have changed the practices in the Qur’an.
Adnan Oktar: Abjad calculation of the part of verse 47 of Surah Yunus "Every nation has a Messenger, and when their Messenger comes...
