Before You Regret

Before You Regret...
But as for those who do evil actions and then subsequently repent and have faith, in that case your Lord is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (The Qur’an, 7:153)

Since those who still live by the moral values of the Days of Ignorance do not believe in destiny and the fact that God creates everything for good, they fail to submit to God and desperately try to forget the mistakes they have made yet they fail to do so. Under the influence of the mistakes they have done, they wallow in a troubled state of mind with the guilt and frustration of those mistakes for all their lives.

The life of this world is an important opportunity granted so that man can earn the perfect and eternal life of the Hereafter.
During the time they’ve been given in this world, every human being is offered the opportunity to repent and lead the rest of their lives in a way that would please God.
If it were the time to meet the angels of death right now, would a person who failed to do his duty as a servant of God in the life of this world be able to give an account of all the years he spent in this world?

Kenneth Keathley: Why Different Views on Creation of the Earth Does Not Contradict Creation of Adam As Complete Human Being?

There are different views in the Christian belief on the Creation of the Earth. But you do not see this as a problem – as long as one accepts that Adam is created as a complete human being by God.  Is this correct? And can we interpret this view, as opinions may differ in some details, as long as  it is not the theory of evolution? And in Christian belief – in any kind of interpretation – there  is no place that living beings are formed out of non-living things by coincidences?

Well, I am an Evangelical Christian. And so the answer I’m going to give, I’m speaking as someone who is an Evangelical Christian. Prior to the 1960’s most Evangelical Christians held to an old earth understanding of the universe. There was a book published by Henry Morris and John Witcomb called ‘The Genesis Flood’ which argued very strongly for the young earth position and as a result many Evangelical Christians today argue and hold to the young earth view.

So I do think that one can hold either to an old earth view or a young earth view; both are permitted within the Genesis text. However I think that the old earth view, not only fits the scripture it also fits with science. And I believe that the God, Who gave us the Bible is also the God, Who created the heavens and earth. And so I believe that one ought to interpret the Bible and science in a way that both agree with one another.

I do think that it is important that we hold to the historicity of Adam and Eve that they were real people created miraculously by God. I think this is important for the Gospel narrative of Creation fall redemption and restoration.  And I also think that it fits very well what science has told us about the common ancestry of humanity. When the human Genome Project was completed by Francis Collins about 15 years ago, one of the things that they determined and discovered is that all of humanity derives from a common man and a common woman. 

And they called woman mitochondrial Eve, they called the man Y-chromosome Adam. Because that refers to the methods by which they were able to arrive at the conclusion that all of humanity has this one woman who is the common ancestor of all and we have this one man who is the common ancestor of all. And I do believe that this is a scientific evidence of the historicity of Adam and of Eve. So I think that a Christian can hold to both an old earth perspective and to the historicity of the original couple.

Only a small portion of the persecution on Rohingya in Arakan

"What reason could you have for not fighting in the Way of Allah — for those men, women and children who are oppressed and say, ´Our Lord, take us out of this city whose inhabitants are wrongdoers! Give us a protector from You! Give us a helper from You!? " Surat An-Nisa, 75

We Should Want the Unity of Islam As a Nation

July 11 th 2013: A9 TV

Adnan Oktar: Egypt is paralyzed. There is no industry and tourism. Nothing is left. It is paralyzed. If there is no art or love but there is suffering, terror and hopelessness in a place, than there won’t be industry, wealth or happiness. Let me tell you, there is nothing left. Help as much as you want; that’s like giving blood to a dead person. Even if you give one thousand liters of  blood, he won’t rise from the dead. In order to rise from the dead, there must be the Mahdi(as), Jesus Christ(pbuh), Islamic Union. There isn’t any other way out of this.

July 13th 2013: A9 TV

Adnan Oktar: They should use a language that embraces all of the Islamic World. 
They must always speak of the Unity of Islam, the Islamic Union. “Let us free Egypt, let us free another country…” Rescuing only a region; God will create exiguousness, trouble and afflictions  with this. That is all that will happen. God knows better.

30 th April 2008: Al Baghdadi TV

Adnan Oktar:
 The solution is the unity of all the Islamic World, THE FORMATION OF A GREAT TURKISH-ISLAMIC UNION UNDER TURKISH LEADERSHIP, FOR TURKEY TO MAKE ITS WEIGHT FELT AS A SUPERPOWER IN THE REGION and to protect and watch over the whole Islamic world as its blood brother, to enable them to grow stronger economically and politically in each and every way, to take the Turkish world, almost all of whom are Muslims anyway, under its protection and to put an immediate end to anarchy as a regional superpower. Taking a step toward a great civilization, we must strive to resemble the time of the Prophet Sulayman (as). That is the solution.

August 16th, 2008: Azerbaijan APA News Agency

Adnan Oktar:
 The period that lacks a Turkish Islamic Union will remain a painful one. There isn’t any way other than that. The only solution is the Turkish Islamic Union. Postponing this would put people under great difficulty. Today, the blood that is being shed in Georgia, or the troubles going on in Abkhazia or the pain felt by the Russians depends on the fact that there has not been a Turkish Islamic Union established. IF TURKEY OFFERS TO UNITE WITH AZERBAIJAN AS ONE NATION BUT TWO SEPARATE STATES, THEY WILL IMMEDIATELY AGREE WITH US IN 24 HOURS, INSHA’ALLAH: THIS IS THE SAME FOR SYRIA AND IRAQ. THERE IS NO ISLAMIC STATE, NO TURKISH STATE WHICH DOES NOT ACCEPT THIS.

God grants believers' every sincere wish

ADNAN OKTAR: I am speaking for myself when I say God granted me everything I wished from Him. In the Qur'an, God says, "Call on Me and I will answer you." This is true, it happens. This is truly astonishing. But most people do not anticipate the fact that there is such a system in place; they believe it would happen very quickly. For example, when people ask God, "O Lord, grant me wealth and prosperity, and I will spend them in Your name." When that is the case, God definitely grants them their wishes, making them unimaginably wealthy. But there is a detail here that should not be overlooked; God grants them their wishes and bestow wealth and prosperity upon them if they are sincere when they say, "O Lord, I will spend my wealth in Your name." If they attempt to spend the wealth God has granted them for their own pleasure, God takes away their wealth by making them spend it on myriad troubles He plagues them with.

Of course, one should not wish unreasonable things from God. He grants every request that is within reason. I cannot think of instances where I made a reasonable request to God and He left my wish unanswered; He grants every reasonable wish. Christians place utmost importance on prayer as they are well-aware of this system for quite a long time.  Among the believers, Christians are the ones who are most aware of this system. Evangelists, in particular, are quite aware of it. Protestants consider prayer vital, hence they pray day and night. And they are right to do so. For some Muslims, prayer is usually a formality and sometimes it is accepted and sometimes not. This is a misconception; every sincere wish is granted. This is not true. Every prayer comes true if it is in the name of God. If you sincerely ask for the reign of Islam to be established, it comes true as well. God says in the Torah; "I will establish the reign of Islam over the world even if only 11 people believes," 11 people. But it has to be a deeply sincere and heartfelt wish. When that is the case, God even establishes the reign of Islam for the sake of a handful of sincere believers.

Does the soul age?

ADNAN OKTAR: Let’s hear another question.

KARTAL GÖKTAN: Mr. Yusuf has a question.

VTR: Hello, I am Yusuf. I meet with many elderly people and I want to ask about how we should treat the elderly?

ADNAN OKTAR: There is no such thing as elderly. There are only people whose organs are not in their best physical condition. For example, they cannot run or lift weight well. Or they have difficulty speaking or hearing. Otherwise, there is no such thing as elderly. The soul does not have an age. It does not age at all. Soul is eternal, so why would it age? It lasts eons without aging. It is the body that ages. Young people, too, can be physically older than their actual age. For this reason, it would be more proper to ask how one should treat people with diminished physical functions. For example, if they walk too slowly to cross the street, we can escort them. Such people might be in their seventeen or seventies or eighties; it does not make any difference. Or they might have sight, hearing or perceptive impediments. This can be a teenager in his nineteen or a man in his nineties. And since we are relatively healthier then such people, we should help them as best as we can. Otherwise, the elderly do not enjoy a distinguished status; everyone deserves the same level of respect. We are obliged to treat people with the same level of respect and politeness, be they in their nineteen or nineties. What matters is whether they need our help or not.
