Highlights from Mr. Adnan Oktar's interview on 9 November 2012
Our government is excellent. It is a model for Egypt. It maintains equilibrium in the region. The Turkish government and Turkish Intelligence, masha’Allah, are doing good work in the maintenance of a balanced structure in the region. Masha’Allah, I say. Morsi must use scientific methods to eliminate Darwinism in Egypt. Darwinism is a very powerful ideology that dominates Egypt. Darwinism and Marxist thinking are also widespread in Palestine. Our brothers must oppose this scourge intellectually, with love, and must engage in intelligent activity. Lack of quality is also widespread in Asia and the Middle East. Very widespread, and they are being crushed underfoot because of that lack of quality. They do not even like themselves. They call themselves Muslims, but they feel no honor in being a Muslim. Most of them, may Allah forbid, are embarrassed about being Muslims. That stems from lack of quality. Quality needs to be improved in all Islamic countries. Darwinism and materialism are something that can be very easily finished off scientifically, with an easy method. It can easily be settled with books, CDs and TV channels. But they are lazy on this subject. They leave it to itself, or ignore it, or some people admit that, “We are in any case Darwinists.” Darwinism is ruining the Middle East. It is the dominant ideology in Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria and Libya. And in Egypt. Darwinism is widespread right up as far as Pakistan. Darwinism is particularly dominant among intellectuals, Egyptian intellectuals. Darwinism first needs to be eliminated using scientific methods because all governments support Darwinism. ..........
Fundamentalism and lack of quality are a grave danger. Lovelessness is a grave danger. Music is an indispensable blessing in Europe. There is music in Asia, but since some of our Muslim brothers regard it as a sin, it has not developed. Architecture has not developed, because they are against architecture. They call tall buildings adornments and they reject them. And they do not want painting or sculpture. They really do not want them. And they do not want love. Defeat follows on from that, of course because hatred develops in some people, because they feel hatred for those things. Then the people who suffer are innocent Muslims. There is a terrible savagery all over the world. Look, they have martyred our dear ones in Rakhine. But nobody cares. They would not get involved even if all of them were killed because they regard them as without quality. That is why it is vitally important for Muslims to become high-quality people very quickly. They must concentrate on quality, science, art and love. It is important that they be peaceable. Hatred rises up against people who are full of hatred. Then they become determined to kill them because they say, “If I do not kill them, they will kill us.” The result is a terrible state of affairs. Yet Muslims are peaceful and loving. We must concentrate on peace and love, art and science, non-stop.
There are two things needed for the global reign of Islam. Let me say this quite explicitly. Love is one, and quality, two.
“Is Allah not enough for His slave?” Allah says in verse 36 of Surat az-Zumar. No lawyer came when I was in prison and everything looked very complicated. But all things are for the best. I said I would open up a verse from the Qur’an and see what Allah told me. And when I opened it, I opened it at this verse 36 of Surat az-Sumar. “Is Allah not enough for His slave?” Alhamdulillah, I said, masha’Allah. I was than looking at a possible sentence of 25 years. But I was then acquitted, alhamdulillah.
“Yet they try to scare you with others apart from Him” says Almighty Allah. We fear none other than Allah. We neither fear nor run away.
“If Allah misguides someone, he has no guide...” If one strays from the faith one becomes a dajjal. “...and if Allah guides someone,” whoever He makes a mahdi, whoever is a mahdi. “...he cannot be misguided” Dajals have no effect on him. The dajjal; the Misguider. The dajjal does not affect him. “Is Allah not Almighty, Exactor of Revenge?”
Allah says he will be avenged upon them all. If you ask them, ‘Who created the heavens and the earth?’ Look, Almighty Allah immediately turns to the subject of creation. That is why I brought out the Atlas of Creation . Creation first. “They will say ‘Allah’.” Whoever you ask will say ‘Allah.’ “Say: ‘So what do you think? If Allah desires harm for me, can those you call upon besides Allah remove His harm? Or if He desires mercy for me, can they withhold His mercy?’Say: ‘Allah is enough for me. All those who truly trust put their trust in Him’.”
“Say: ‘My people’,” O bigots. “do as you think best.” Look, what you want in the light of that bigoted belief that is upon you. Do what you wish. “...that is what I am doing.” I am also doing the necessary activities. “You will soon know who will receive...”
Who will be victorious, who is powerful.
“a punishment which disgraces him...” Look, Allah says disgracing, not killing. It disgraces them. “...and will unleash against himself an everlasting punishment.” You will see this, it says.
“We have sent down to you the Book for mankind with truth.” We have sent down the Qur’an, says Allah. That is all. There is no other commandment. Only the Qur’an. “So whoever is guided,” if they follow the Qur’an “is guided to his own good and whoever is misguided,” whoever strays from the Qur’an, “it is to his detriment. You are not set over them as a guardian.”
If they stray, they stray. It is not your problem, says Almighty Allah.
Our brothers must constantly curse lovelessness. Lovelessness is the worst scourge afflicting the world. They regard lovelessness as normal. Lovelessness is hell. Lovelessness is a terrible thing. Hatred has entered many people’s hearts. People who hate are very hideous. They live hellish lives and are hugely immoral and there is this lack of quality. Lovelessness leads to lack of quality, and vice-versa. Lovelessness grows very quickly where there is no love. The lack of quality grows where there is no love. Love goes hand in hand with quality. Our brothers must strive to be high-quality Muslims. We must strive to raise love as high as possible. Violence, terror and ruthlessness are all attributes of hell and must be avoided at all costs. Such things are disgusting to a Muslim. They must be avoided.
Surat al-Furqan, 63
“The slaves of the All-Merciful” true Muslims, “are those who walk lightly on the earth,” they are humble and modest, they do not put on airs, they do not show off, they do not swagger about as teachers and mullahs. They do not pretend to be saints. They do not pretend to be different to everyone else. They behave normally and warmly. “...and, who, when the ignorant speak to them, say, ‘Peace’;” they will abuse them and say evil things and seek to upset them. But what must Muslims say. They must say ‘Peace’ and move on and not get involved.
“...those who pass the night prostrating and standing before their Lord;”
They pray in the evening.
“...those who say, ‘Our Lord, avert from us the punishment of Hell’,” the wrath of hell would normally descends, but Allah sends it away. “...its punishment is inescapable pain.” In other words, a Muslim knows that if you sin, the punishment is hell.
"It is indeed an evil lodging and abode;” A Muslim will fear it.
“...those who, when they spend, are neither extravagant nor mean,” they happily spend money on the path of Allah and do not waste it. They happily spend money if it will go to Muslims, on the path of Allah. But they do not waste their money. “...but take a stance mid way between the two;”
The Qur’an must be above your pillow when you sleep. You must read it when you go to bed in the evening, and when you get up. It must be on your desk. Shaytan wants to turn you away from the Qur’an. That is why those conditions arise. They keep women away from the Qur’an for half their lives. “Don’t touch the Qur’an! You must not touch it.” You must wash your hands, though Muslims are already very clean people, before touching the Qur’an. If your hands are clean, go and read the Qur’an. Men or women can read it as they wish. You read the text.
