Highlights from Mr. Adnan Oktar's interview on 14 December 2012
Surat an-Nisa, 75:
“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!” A country that obeys the dajjal. “Give us a protector from You! Give us a helper from You!’”
The Lord of Time. The people’s demand for the Mahdi (pbuh) is described by Allah in the Qur’an. “Give us a helper from You!” Send us the Mahdi (pbuh), the Lord of Time. “What reason could you have for not fighting in the Way of Allah – for those men, women and children who are oppressed...” This verse is a direct reference to the Mahdi (pbuh). And the Qur’an tells us that people need to ask for the Mahdi (pbuh). We see in the Qur’an the form that desire for the Mahdi (pbuh) takes. What must a Muslim say? “O Lord, send us a guide and a protector from You!” Send us the Lord of Time.
Surat al-Baqara verses 246- 247- 248
“...when they said to one of their Prophets, ‘Give us a king’...” A Mahdi (pbuh). “...and we will fight in the Way of Allah!’? He said, ‘Is it not possible that if fighting were prescribed for you, you would not fight?’ They said, ‘How could we not fight in the way of Allah when we have been driven from our homes and children?’ But then when fighting was prescribed for them, they turned their backs – except for a few of them. Allah knows the wrongdoers.”
They will not wish to help when the Mahdi (pbuh) appears.
“Their Prophet said to them, ‘Allah has appointed Talut to be your king’.” As their imam. So that society will be one of unbelievers. “They said, ‘How can he have kingship over us when we have much more right to kingship than he does’?” In other words, we have far more right to the position of mahdi. We are better scholars, we are richer, we are better known. “He has not even got much wealth!” He has no money or wealth or backers. “How can he have kingship over us?” How can he be the imam? How can he be the leader? How can he serve as mahdi? “He said, ‘Allah has chosen him over you’,” Allah chooses him. In other words, people do not choose themselves. “...and favored him greatly in knowledge and physical strength.” He is a better scholar than you, and wiser and physically stronger. He is healthier and stronger. “Allah gives kingship to anyone He wills.” Allah will not ask you who should be the mahdi (pbuh). “Allah is All-Encompassing, All-Knowing.”
“Their Prophet said to them, ‘The sign of his kingship is that the Ark will come to you,” the sign that he is the imam and the mahdi, will be the coming of the Ark of the Prophet Moses (pbuh), “...containing serenity from your Lord,” in other words, you will experience a feeling of peace and tranquility, and people will begin to feel this as of December 21, this feeling of peace and tranquility, this phenomenon set out in the Qur’an. “...and certain relics left by the families of Moses and Aaron.” Holy relics. “It will be borne by angels.” Angels will conceal it. “There is a sign for you in that if you are faithful.'” There is evidence in this if you have faith. “There is proof I wish to tell you of,” says Almighty Allah, “There is a sign.” What does that point to? To the system of the Mahdi. Who will find the Ark of the Covenant? The Mahdi (pbuh). Who will bring it and place it before the Masjid of Solomon (pbuh)? The Mahdi (pbuh). Who will be given the holy relics? The Mahdi (pbuh). To whom does the Qur’an point? The Mahdi (pbuh).
(In response to a mail from a reader saying, “Do earthly desires belong to the soul, or are they encoded data? Do earthly desires and shaytan act together, or are they independent negative forces?”)
There is a negative force known as shaytan, but it is weak. The important thing is, if we use our consciences, if we use our minds, Allah will constantly reveal it to our consciences. For example, if we do something wrong, the knowledge of that reaches us. It is inspired in us, inspired in our hearts. If we resist that information, we are violating our consciences. But if we act on it without resistance, then we are heeding our conscience.
(In response to a mail from a reader saying; “When some people claim that 99% of women will go to hell they say our Prophet (saas) imparted secret knowledge, but when it suits them they say one cannot seek secret knowledge from anyone other than Allah.”)
The Mahdi (pbuh) will appear, but they say, “No.” They say that none other than Allah can know secret knowledge. So how do you know that 99% of women will go to hell? It suits them to say that. They hate women. They are full of hate. It is amazing what they will do to make women ugly. They foolishly imagine that 99% of them will go to hell. I have done away with that foolishness.
