Highlights from Mr. Adnan Oktar's interview on 12 December 2012
Everyone in the heavens and earth requests His aid. Every day He is engaged in some affair.
So which of your Lord’s blessings do you both then deny? (Surat ar-Rahman, 29-30)
In the sense that Allah creates you at every moment. We are created at every moment, the movements of our hands and arms are all created. The fact we drink tea is created. Sentences, words and letters are created. Allah is creating every second.
(Palestinian head of state Mahmud Abbas has said that the priority for the next term will be to ensure national consensus in Palestine. He used the terms, “Fragmentation must end. The whole world must now look at Palestine and see a single state.” Abbas also went on to say, “I want to see the Palestinian and Turkish flags flying in Jerusalem.”)
There will be Turkish and Palestinian flags in Jerusalem. There will also be Egyptian flags and the way of the Mahdi will reign. There will be all the flags in Palestine, in Israel and in Jerusalem.
Verses pointing to the system of the Mahdi:
Surat al-Hijr, 56
He said, ‘Who despairs of the mercy of his Lord except for misguided people?’ There are several kinds of people that lose hope in the mercy of Allah. But Allah says that those who lose hope in His mercy are misguided. Losing hope is a sin.
Surat al-Hijr, 87
We have given you the Seven Oft-repeated and the Magnificent Qur’an.
We note the seven of 87. For example, the economic crisis began in 2007. It will ease off in 2014, insha’Allah.
Surat al-Hajj, 41
...those who, if We establish them firmly on the earth, if we reign, will establish prayer and pay poor-alms, and command what is right and forbid what is wrong.
A verse pointing to the Mahdi (pbuh). A verse referring to global sovereignty.
Surat adh-Dhariyat, 23
By the Lord of heaven and earth, it is certainly the truth, just as you have speech.
What is promised to us? The return of Jesus the Messiah, the coming of the Mahdi (pbuh), the Dabbat al-Ardh (the Beast of the Earth) and the Day of Reckoning. Allah says these will happen.
Surat ar-Rum, 4-5
...in a few years’ time. The affair is Allah’s from beginning to end. On that day, the believers will rejoice in Allah’s help. He grants victory to whoever He wills. He is the Almighty, the Most Merciful.
This event foretold by Allah came about to the letter. He spoke of the lowest place in the world, and it happened in the lowest place in the world. Allah revealed who the victorious side would be, and they were victorious. He revealed the time frame, and it happened in the time frame revealed by Allah.
Surah Muhammad, 18
What are they awaiting but for the Hour to come upon them suddenly? Its Signs have already come.
Signs of the Day of Reckoning. The appearance of the Mahdi (pbuh) is the first sign. That is the greatest sign of the Day of Reckoning, the appearance of the Mahdi (pbuh). Two, the return of Jesus the Messiah, the appearance of the dajjal, Gog and Magog and the Dabbat al-Ardh. What good will their Reminder be to them when it does arrive?
It will be no use at all once the Day of reckoning is here, but people need to concentrate on the signs and pull themselves together when they see them. The coming of the Mahdi (pbuh), the return of Jesus the Messiah.
Surat al-Jinn, 24
So that when they see what they were promised, they will know who has less support and smaller numbers.
The hadiths say that this verse refers to the Mahdi (pbuh). In other words, when the see the coming of the Mahdi (pbuh) and Jesus the Messiah (pbuh). They will say the Mahdi (pbuh) is weak because he has few followers. They will say there are only 300 of them, so they can do nothing. But Allah says the fact they are few in number is irrelevant. They will still reign, with My help, He says. You saw they were few in number and thought they were weak, He says. But I shall cause them to reign despite their low numbers, He says. That is the meaning of the verse.
Surat al-Ma’ida, 54
Allah will bring forward a people whom He loves and who love Him, humble to the believers, fierce to the disbelivers, who strive in the Way of Allah and do not fear the blame of any censurer. They issue condemnations on the internet and the radio and on television. They gossip, they talk on Facebook. But will the followers of the Mahdi fear the condemnation? No. Who says this? Allah. Do not be afraid, for I shall bring forth a people, He says. That is the unbounded favor of Allah which He gives to whoever He wills. Allah is Boundless, All-Knowing.
Of the followers of the Mahdi; they will share the burden of the work of the land with him. (Portents of Doomsday, p. 187)
Surat ad-Dhariyat, 4
...and those apportioning the command:
Allah speaks of those who share the division of labor among themselves. The Mahdi (pbuh) will be highly disciplined. He will work hard and divide work among people.
They are lions by day and servants by night. (Kitab-ul Burhan Fi Alamet-il Mehdiyy-il Ahir Zaman, p. 57-68) The word servants here means people who preach, who speak, who remember Allah. Lions, because they resemble the Mahdi (pbuh), and he is a lion. The Prophet (saas) says that his followers are also lions. The title of 'lion' was given to Hazrat Ali (pbuh) and it is also given to the Mahdi (pbuh), but also to his followers.
Surat ad-Dhariyat, 17-18
The part of the night they spent asleep was small. Because they work and preach.
...and they would seek forgiveness before the dawn.
They would pray to Allah and repent in the early hours of the morning.
Allah will support him (Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh)) with 3,000 angels. (El Kavlu-l Muhtasar Fi Alamatil Mehdiyy-il Muntazar, Ahmed İbn-i Hacer-i Mekki, p. 41)
And when you said to the faithful, ‘Is it not enough for you that your Lord reinforced you with three thousand angels, sent down?’ (Surat al-Imr’an, 124)
Look, that is the same as the hadith.
“The helpers of the Mahdi are [the archangels] Gabriel and Michael” says our Prophet (saas) in a hadith. He says that Gabriel will be in front of the followers of the Mahdi, and Michael behind. Gabriel and Michael will be to the right and left of the Mahdi (pbuh).
... Allah is his Protector and so are Gabriel and every right-acting man of the believers and, furthermore, the angels too will come to his support. (Surat at-Tahrim, 4)
