Does Khidr (pbuh) communicate with people?
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9TV dated February 10th, 2016
ADNAN OKTAR: Muhyiddin Arabi says, "I have shaken hands with the Mahdi (as)." This, too, occurs in the yakaza state. Khidr (pbuh) gives tasks to people when they are in this state. Khidr (pbuh) does not communicate with people who are in a conscious state.
BÜLENT SEZGİN: Do these people know that the task were given by Khidr (pbuh)?
ADNAN OKTAR: Because this is a dreamlike phenomenon, it does not take away that person's freewill, but they still know it. In fact, people are put into a trance beforehand. In Masonic meetings, the master, the person in charge, is brought to the Masonic pedestal called 'altar'; there, the master is put into a deep trance via hypnosis. It is in this state of deep slumber that the master gets in touch with Khidr (pbuh). Sometimes, he repeats what Khidr (pbuh) has told him, the parts of their conversation. Of course, they use the conversation later.
"Mr. Oktar, also, did you personally see Khidr (pbuh)? May God bless you, Mr. Oktar. I love you so much." Hüseyin Teztenci. I would not speak of it, even if I saw him. I would not speak of it, if I saw Jesus (pbuh) either. These are dangerous subjects. No level-headed, mature person who met Khidr (pbuh) would speak of their meeting and conversations. Besides, if Khidr (pbuh) deems a person worthy of meeting, it means that the person is mature and well-behaved. It would be utterly tactless to disclose and overtly speak about it. One can do so only if Khidr (pbuh) said so. Otherwise, it should never be spoken of. But, Khidr (pbuh) is not an entity that is impossible to communicate with. Khidr (pbuh) can and do meet with people.
GULEN BATURALP: Can Khidr be simultaneously present at several different places?
ADNAN OKTAR: Yes he can, but there is only one Khidr (pbuh). For example, saints also can be simultaneously present at many different places; but they have only one body and they do not know about the other bodies. "Do you think that Khidr (pbuh) was present in any assassination attempts against Mahdi (as)?" Indeed, yes. He can do so to glorify Mahdi (as). He can both carry out and prevent assassinations. Because, Khidr's (pbuh) fundamental duty is to help Mahdi (as); this is his most important duty. It is for this duty that Khidr's life has been extended for several millennia. Khidr (as) is very old; in fact, he is more than 6000 years old. But, since he exists in spirit form that is not bound by the limitations of time, time does not affect him. If Khidr (as) were asked about his age, he would think that he should be 60 years old at most. But since he has entered a timeless dimension, he does not age. It is also true for the jinni, they can live up to the age of 2000 or 3000 years.
