New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (2 October 2016)


HAZRAT ALİ: "WHEN THE TURKS RISE, EXPECT THE ARRIVAL OF MAHDI (AS)."

In one of his poems, Hazrat Ali (ra) writes, "When the Turks rise, expect the arrival of Mahdi (as)." Why does he say so? He says so because Mahdi (as) will appear in Turkey. Why would he say "Turks" otherwise? There are Afghans. There are Arabs. There are Circassians. There are Persians. There are many others. But Hazrat Ali (ra) says, "When the Turks rise, expect the arrival of Mahdi (as)." This means that a rise, an outburst will take place in Turkey.

 

THE SOUL IS NOT CONCERNED WITH THE ELECTRICAL CURRENT FLOWN TO THE BRAIN. IT IS ONLY CONCERNED WITH THE IMAGES COMING DIRECTLY FROM GOD

God created all musical instruments as blessing. The sound they produce are the sounds created by God. Otherwise, musical instruments do not produce any sound. They only produce vibrations. These vibrations reach the ear, which is deaf, and the ear transmits them. They ultimately arrive before the soul who listens to it as a beautiful music. Music is created completely independently; vibrations do not produce music. They do not produce anything, nor do they affect the soul in anyway. The soul hears the music directly from God. It hears the music created by God. Vibration is not something that the soul is concerned with or needs. By the virtue of its quality, the soul is not concerned with vibrations. It is the same for the electrical currents received by the brain. They are not of any concern to soul either. Soul does not concern itself with electrical currents, only with the image received directly from God. It is quite a weak current and would only produce a low-quality image. In other words, if an image is to be produced from the current transmitted by the eyes and brain, and projected on a TV screen, it would be in utterly terrible quality. It would be so blurry, one could hardly make out the objects. They would look very fuzzy and indistinguishable. So the soul does not even deign to analyze that image; it only cares about the clear image coming from God. It does not need such a fabricated image.

 

GOD IS ALWAYS WITH THOSE WHO LOVE HIM. GOD LOVES THOSE WHO LOVE HIM AND GRANT THEM HIS BLESSINGS. THOSE WHO LOVE GOD SHOULD NEVER ABANDON HIM. THEY SHOULD ALWAYS KEEP GOD IN THEIR THOUGHTS

God is offended when we do not pray or when we forget about Him. If we believe we can overcome everything on our own, it offends God. Because it is Him who makes us overcome it. Let's imagine a situation where one regretfully thinks, "Why didn't I respond in that way?" or "Why did I respond in this way?" It is God who makes you respond in that way. Or let's say one's knee aches, and he thinks "What should I do about this? It really hurts." Who is the one making the knee aches? Aching of the knee is a miracle, a special sensation. Who is the one that will make the aching go away? God will. These facts should never be forgotten. God despises polytheism. It is the one thing God truly despise and offended by. People should never lose their connection with God. When people incline towards polytheism, they should immediately seek refuge in God in repentance. One cannot abandon God offering exhaustion or lack of sleep as an excuse. One cannot abandon even on the throes of death. People should remember God to the best of their ability. Not being able to wake up due to exhaustion is not an excuse to avoid performing prayers. How is it that you cannot wake up for prayer but you leap out of your bed when your self-interest is in question? One cannot offer being tired as an excuse to avoid praying. One cannot offer being tired as an excuse to avoid remembering God. Even if it's brief, one should remember God regardless of exhaustion. It is God who keeps you alive. God takes offense when love of God is postponed even for a short period. One expresses his love for God through prayer, through vocal remembrance and worship. Because God loves us, so we should love Him back.

 

VIGOR IS NOT ACHIEVED THROUGH NOURISHMENT AND SLEEP GOD BESTOWS THOSE WHO ARE ON GOD'S SIDE WITH VIGOR IF HE WISHES SO

Our brothers and sisters says, "Masha'Allah, we are surprised by how energetic you are. You have been on air for many hours." With God's help, we are keen and active. Even if you suggest to yourself that you need sleep, food or water God can fulfill any of those needs in two seconds without you realizing it when you are on God's side. God could make you sleep for two seconds with your eyes open without you even realizing it, filling you with vigor. God could secretly satiate your hunger in a second when you are hungry. You might feel full of vigor and you would not even realize it. Eating via mouth is not the only way to eat food. God could instantly fill your spirit and body with energy, making you feel more alive and energetic than with a full stomach. Hazrat Ali (ra) did not tap into the strength that the meal he had eaten provided him when he unhinged the gate of the Castle Khaybar; he tapped into the strength God had granted him. He felt a sudden surge of strength. And he lost that strength as suddenly as he had received it. The Companions told him to lift the castle gate once again, but he could not move it an inch. He had put the gate down after unhinging it. He came back near the gate and the Companions told him, "We truly admired how you unhinged the castle gate. Can you do it again?" But Hazrat Ali (ra) could not move it. But before, he lifted it as easily as lifting a bird. It was God who granted him the strength at that exact moment.
