New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (21 August 2016)
WHY WOULDN'T HYPOCRITES LIVE AMONG UNBELIEVERS?
How can the hypocrites express their turpitude and meanness among unbelievers? Hypocrites' desire is to display their mean character. I mean, considering that they won’t be able to carry the news of the unbelievers to the unbelievers, living among unbelievers would be a neutral place for them. In other words, it is not a place where they can actively carry out their traitorous activities. How can they carry out their evil activities, try to cause damage to pious people from inside, disturb them, harm them, spy on them and help the satan the most? By remaining inside Muslim communities. They can only take the evil pleasure they desire from their activities when they operate among Muslims. They can't take evil pleasure from their activities when they live among unbelievers. Due to this evil mentality, they do not live among unbelievers. Hypocrites live as a separate tribe.
Muslims love each other and hypocrites want to spoil this love. However, unbelievers already do not love each other, hence hypocrites can't spoil that. In other words, there is nothing that can satisfy them among unbelievers. There is no environment to conduct their evil activities, to carry out satan's orders. That’s because, for them to follow satan's orders, they need to act upon satan's targets. Who does the satan target? Muslims. Unbelievers are not a target for satan; Muslims are. Therefore, they live among Muslims by satan's urge, influence and inspiration. They are like the bacteria that causes tuberculosis. They try to wither the Muslim body. But of course, Muslims develop a defense mechanism against them and strengthen their bodies. In other words, Muslims improve and strengthen their bodies while defending themselves. Satan does not tell them to "go and live among unbelievers". It tells them to "go live among Muslims", because the goal is to harm Muslims. It says "go and hide yourselves among Muslims". "Do not be detected. There is no need for your wisdom or intellect, I will advise and counsel you," says the satan. It says, "I will tell you where to operate, where to carry out which vile deeds". As God says, hypocrites are "inspired" by the satan. Satan surrounds the hypocrites like an electromagnetic field.
THE EVIL ELECTRICITY OF THE HYPOCRITES CAN BE IMMEDIATELY FELT HOWEVER, BECAUSE THEY MASQUERADE AS POLITE, KNOWLEDGEABLE AND HIGH-CLASS PEOPLE, THE COMMON PEOPLE ARE DECEIVED BY THIS FACADE
When hypocrites go into an environment, Muslim immediately sense them from their negative vibe. For example, if a hypocrite was to come here right now, you could immediately tell. It is a creature whose evil electricity can be felt. However, due to their evil intelligence, they can masterfully disguise themselves as Muslims, high-class, intelligent, honest, respectable and decent people. In fact, they are filthy, irreligious, despicable, treacherous, vile and dishonorable. But hypocrites put on a decent facade. For that reason, common people usually admire hypocrites, as they can't see their true colors.
For example, at the time of the Messenger of God (saas), the common people admired the hypocrite who didn't have faith even though he witnessed the miracle of the Qur’an about the number nineteen. They picked this hypocrite to send as an envoy. They said, "This is the most intelligent of us, he should go. He is the most cultured of us, the most intelligent". The most intellectual, by that period's definition.
Hypocrites have a terrible hatred inside; hatred towards the Qur’an, hatred towards our Prophet (saas), hatred towards God. But when you look at their appearance, they look like honest, well-behaved, polite, cultured and high-class people. For example, they know the proper etiquette for eating and drinking. They know how to act properly. They act like that. But in fact, they are extremely filthy, treacherous and unprincipled.
WHEN THE BELIEVERS RECEIVE A BLESSING, HYPOCRITES' FACES BECOME PITCH BLACK
About hypocrites, God says, I seek refuge in God from satan. "Debasement will darken them. They will have no one to protect them from God. It is as if their faces were covered by dark patches of the night...” (Surah Yunus, 27). Hypocrites' faces become as it's described in the Qur'an. Just watch hypocrites' faces when Muslims receive a blessing. That is one of the best times to detect a hypocrite. Look at hypocrites' faces when a believer or a believer community receives a blessing. Or look at the face of someone who you suspect to be a hypocrite. You can immediately tell, their faces darken, and they suffer greatly. The faces of believers, on the other hand, become radiant with blessing, they rejoice, don’t they? But hypocrites suffer. People ask, "How can we detect hypocrites?" I am telling you the way to detect them. Look, if you want a miracle, I'm saying it. You can try it if you want. Offer Muslims food as a blessing for example, to a beautiful community or to an individual; give Muslims a blessing. You will see the malice and contempt that appears on the faces of hypocrites; that distinct expression forms on their faces as a miracle. They can't get rid of it. As God says in the verse; "It is as if their faces were covered by dark patches of the night…"
HYPOCRITES ARE NOT THANKFUL TO GOD FOR THE BLESSINGS BESTOWED UPON THEM
Hypocrites are not thankful to God for the blessings He gives, you can detect them that way too. People usually ask, "How can we discover hypocrites, how can we detect them?" I am telling you the signs. When hypocrites receive a blessing, they do not say, "Thank God, Alhamdulillah". They think that they deserve it anyway. In other words, they don't recognize the fact that those blessings are bestowed upon them by God. They don't believe that those blessings come from God. They consider it their right. They are not thankful for them, they don't praise God for them. If you want signs, I'm telling you the signs, tangible signs. They ask me sometimes, "How can we identify the hypocrites?" I'm telling you tangible signs. They are not thankful when they receive a blessing. They find flaws in the blessing. Or they become troubled if believers receive a blessing. When they are offered a blessing, they are not thankful, they don't praise God. In other words, they are not thankful. In many verses of the Qur’an, this is emphasized numerous times, that they wouldn't be thankful, they wouldn't praise God.
IN MASNAVI, SNAKE, TURTLE AND HEDGEHOG SYMBOLS ARE USED IN SPECIAL AND MYSTERIOUS COMMUNICATIONS
Mawlana Rumi says that "satan looks like a hedgehog's head, a hedgehog is afraid of a hunter -of a bad hunter, a hunter who is an enemy to him- and it cowers and hides its head. It doesn't get detected," says Mawlana. "It rears its head when it finds an opportunity". Look; "It rears its head when it finds an opportunity". He talks about turtles and snakes in detail as well. They use these animals as symbols.
MARTYRS GO TO HEAVEN DIRECTLY AND THE BODY WE ARE SHOWN IN THE GRAVE IS NOT THEIR REAL BODY
The souls of our martyrs are in Heaven right now. We call it the soul, because their bodies, as we know them, remain here. However, the bodies that are shown to us are not their real bodies. In other words, the bodies in their graves are not their real body. Their real bodies are in Heaven. We see them as dead bodies. They directly go to Heaven with their real bodies. For example, a dead person goes to Heaven as a soul. But a martyr goes to Heaven with his body, his real body.
