Highlights from Mr. Adnan Oktar's interview on 12 November 2012
A9 TV, November 12th, 2012
Muslims love many people, but unbelievers only very few. Believers love many people. Even their coming together and wishing one another well is a source of ease because angels attend such meetings. Ease and tranquility arise there. Hearts are opened. It is a healthy thing for Muslims to wish one another well. A Muslim seeing another believer is a source of good health. It brings ease to the heart. But wishes from the unbelievers are poisonous. That is why women should protect themselves from the wishes of immoral and cruel people, from the enemies of Allah. Their wishes are filthy and polluting. Even glances from immoral people are polluting. Of course, there are people who are irreligious but who still have a conscience and are open to preaching. They are different. One must feel affection for them and protect and watch over them. It is not a problem if someone is an atheist, a communist or a Darwinist. The problem is if he is dishonest. One must keep away from insincere and immoral people with no conscience. Their wishes pollute one. They can damage a person’s strength. That is why Allah suggests one should not look them in the face, but avoid their eyes. The interpretation of that verse is highly significant. Turn your faces away from them, says Allah. Do not look at them, He says, insha’Allah. But of course we have to resolve issues with love and brotherhood and call people to peace, insha’Allah. We cannot do that by being enemies with anyone because Almighty Allah tells us to do good to those who do us evil. And then they will become our friends. That is a miracle. How wonderful.
(A new structure and name has emerge from a meeting of members of the Syrian opposition that has lasted approximately a week in Doha, capital of Qatar. This new body, under the leadership of the known moderate Muaz al-Hatip, has decided to unite all the opposition in Syria under a single roof. Turkish Foreign Minister Davutoğlu stated that America and other countries who were insisting on the unification of the Syrian opposition in order to give backing now had no reason not to do so and that support needed to be given to this legal body that represented the Syrian people.)
Yes, I said this the other day, too. I have been saying it for a long time now. There needs to be a legitimate and well-known figure. Someone who feels affection for Christians and Jews and who has no greed and desires of his own. He may be greedy, but greedy for moral virtues.
(Today, on November 12th, 1933, the Islamic Republic of East Turkestan was founded, and also the Republic of East Turkestan on November 12th, 1944. We congratulate our brothers on these anniversaries. Insha’Allah, Allah will allow them to live in greater well-being.)
Our congratulations to them all, masha’Allah. May Allah grant them all long lives. East Turkestan will soon be like Konya, insha’Allah. By Allah’s leave. We will be able to have lunch in East Turkestan and dinner in Baku. And breakfast in Cairo. They are making the world an unpleasant place for no reason. I cannot believe that hypocrisy. They are doing it one to another. But how great if we can be servants of Allah and live in happiness. Let us live in happiness and give thanks to our Lord in paradise for all eternity. “O Mahdi,” we say, insha’Allah, And “O Jesus the Messiah.” May Almighty Allah grant us the honor of seeing them both. May He make us followers of them both. I can feel the presence of the Mahdi (pbuh). I can feel the presence of the prayers of Jesus the Messiah (pbuh) in the world. One prays, one blessed one, and the world rolls over. The prayers of the prophets are always heeded, as you know. That applies to Noah (pbuh), our own Prophet (saas), the Prophet Moses (pbuh) and all of them. And to Jesus the Messiah. For example, they ask him to pray to our Lord to send a table of food down. He prays and it happens. But that does not eliminate the need for free will. Why? Because someone could still have prepared the table. If Jesus the Messiah prays under the inspiration of Allah then a hurricane will blow up. Or if he prays an earthquake will happen. That is an attribute of Jesus the Messiah. It is an unknown attribute. Some people may know it, but I am speaking to those who do not know. His prayer is heeded, as soon as he makes it. Allah has created him like that, it is a miracle.
Wise statements from Surat al-Baqara:
"... Allah has appointed Talut to be your king.” As the king, the leader. In other words, the Mahdi (pbuh). This is a reference to the Mahdi. It is amazing. There is one abjad value, 1979. That gives Hijri 1400. It gives only the date of the Mahdi (pbuh), and that is all. No other. It speaks of a king, a leader, it is directly about the Mahdi (pbuh), insha’Allah. Look, the bigots will be unable to bear his leadership in that time: "How can he have kingship over us when we have much more right to kingship than he does?” We have much more learning. There are teachers and scholars there, so who does he think he is? That is what they say, may Allah forbid. “He has not even got much wealth!” We have wealth and possessions and means. We have political power and means. So who does he think he is when there are people like us around? They say that. That gives an abjad date of 1966. “Allah has chosen him over you and favored him greatly in knowledge and physical strength. Allah gives kingship to anyone He wills.” 1989. “Allah is All-Encompassing, All-Knowing.” 2036. (Surat al-Baqara, 247) Look, the verse gives the dates of the system of the Mahdi one after the other. Abjad values, one after the other.
And Allah speaks of the Ark, of the finding of the Ark of the Covenant, which Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will produce, as you know. "The sign of his kingship” the seal of the system of the Mahdi, “is that the Ark will come to you,” Allah says. Look, the Ark of the Covenant, the Ark of the Prophet Moses (pbuh) is in the Qur’an. “containing serenity from your Lord...” He says that ease and peace, a guarantee of faith, will come to your hearts. “Serenity will come to your hearts,” He says. “When the Mahdi (pbuh) brings the Ark and places it before the al-Aqsa Mosque, all Christians and Jews will become Muslims en masse.” Our prophet (saas) says that a great mass of people will become Muslims. In the time of the Mahdi (pbuh), before Jesus the Messiah even appears. From seeing the Ark of the Covenant. “...and certain relics left by the families of Moses and Aaron.” That is highly significant. Allah says there are objects inside it. “It will be borne by angels.” Angels will protect it, says Allah. The Ark is currently hidden, under protection. “There is a sign for you in that if you are muminun.” (Surat al-Baqara, 248) What is there evidence of? That the Mahdi (pbuh) and Jesus the Messiah (pbuh) are true, insha’Allah. Almighty Allah will show the Ark as evidence of Himself in that time. The Ark of the Covenant. It is made of rudus idaeus (acacia) wood. “...and certain relics left by the families of Moses and Aaron.” It is full. There is one of those tablets that came down to the Prophet Moses (pbuh), and the staff of the Prophet Solomon (pbuh). Part of it, not the whole thing. There is clothing and a great many holy relics inside it. One feature of the Ark is that it preserves things. Allah has worked such a miracle, masha’Allah. The things inside it do not decay. Those objects are not the kind of things that could decay, anyway. They are not made of that kind of material. That wood does not decay. This is a literal description of the system of the Mahdi. Look, "Allah has chosen him over you.” 1996. That is one date. The most difficult time of the system of the Mahdi, insha’Allah. With the gemination mark, it gives the date 2027, and that refers to global dominion. “Allah gives kingship to anyone He wills.” Global sovereignty. To whom will He give that? To the Mahdi (pbuh), insha’Allah. Wealth and political power and everything, insha’Allah.
Talut was the mahdi of that time. Goliath was the dajjal. “And with Allah's permission they routed them.” Abjad calculation gives a date of 2029. This is a miracle. Why not 3418, or 1515, or 4758? It gives 2029. “David killed Goliath.” He slays the system of the dajjal, insha’Allah. “Allah gave him kingship and wisdom...” Sovereignty and wisdom, in other words, and fine speech. “and taught him whatever He willed... Allah shows favor to all the worlds.”
2024 by abjad calculation. These verses are overflowing, masha’Allah.
“Those are Allah’s Signs which We recite to you with truth.” Almighty Allah says this. “You are indeed one of the Messengers.” Almighty Allah tells our Prophet (saas) that he is one of the mahdis.
“...they said, ‘We do not have the strength to face Goliath and his troops today’.” This describes a moment of weakness. Abjad calculation gives a date of 1942. The time of the Second World War. The early years of the system of the dajjal. The worst times of the system of the dajjal. It gives a date of 1942.
“We gave Clear Signs to Jesus, son of Mary,” 2017. “and reinforced him with the Purest Spirit.”
“Anyone who rejects false gods and has faith in Allah has grasped the Firmest Handhold, which will never give way. Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing.”
There is no weariness if you have grasped the book of Allah.
Surat al-Baqara is full of secrets. Not just one or two or ten.
“It will be borne by angels,” says Allah. You can seek it all you like. Look, Israel is looking for it, those activities are under way now. The Masons and the Knights Templar are looking for it. The Israeli government has set aside a huge budget to find the Ark of the Covenant. Allah says He has protected it with angels. You cannot see it, even if it is right there before your eyes. You enter the cave and it is right there before you, it is covered in dust, but you cannot see it. “There is a sign for you in that if you are faithful.” Nobody can ignore that evidence.
The Ark of the Covenant will be found in that time, after 3,000 years. In its original form. It is made of acacia wood and covered in gold. It has a special structure. There is a special green stone inside it. We will see that, too. It is a most unusual and fascinating chest. I can say that it will burn anyone who opens it, apart from the rightful owner. Special permission from Almighty Allah is needed to open it, insha’Allah. If someone opens the Ark without permission, electricity forming in it will stun them. The Ark has such a system within it. It is no ordinary chest. It was brought by the prophet Moses (pbuh). And it was what most upset Pharaoh because Pharaoh attached great importance to it.
The Ark bestows a feeling of ease. This is a huge miracle. People approaching it feel a relaxation in their nerves, as if a great weight had been lifted from them. This is a miracle. And it appears in the Qur’an, too. Almighty Allah says this quite explicitly: “...containing serenity from your Lord...” It bestows a feeling of security in people. They feel peace and security next to that chest.
The Philistines captured the Ark, but it brought them great trouble and affliction; the Philistines were pagans then. That is why it wrong to equate them with the Palestinians. Philistine is the name of a pagan people. It would be like us calling a Muslim Nimrod, or Pharaoh. They are the sons of Ishmael. They are descended from the Prophet Ishmael (pbuh).
