THE CLIMATE IN PARADISE

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON KACKAR TV (29 January 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR: 
Paradise has a constantly temperate climate, it is neither hot nor cold, but always warm. There is no day and night, but very faint images reminiscent of day and night will form for us to enjoy.

ARE THERE DIFFERENT PARADISES?

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON EKIN TV (26 January 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
People speak of different paradises, the Paradise of Adnan, the Paradise of Firdaws. But these may be different parts of Paradise, because everyone will be in the same Paradise, in the same environment, but people will have different degrees of pleasure. People will like a flower, or a woman, or food, according to their own inner powers, to their own power of faith, to the power Allah creates within them. Their delight will differ, but people will not know that, they will not know they take pleasure differently. They will imagine they get the same level of pleasure.

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON TEMPO TV (28 January 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
Yes, there is the Jannat al-Naim, the Paradise of Naim. There is the Paradise of Firdaws and the Paradise of Adnan. But these paradises are all together and in the same place. They are like heavenly strata. Like strata placed one on top of the other. It is a delightful world consisting of lovely homes, glorious greenery, magnificently attractive people, splendid vehicles and foods, excellent clothing and delightful perfumes and glorious objects. But we will see all these in the same way we do in this world, of course, as images, but we will imagine they really exist. We will imagine they exist as we do in this world. I mean, their real counterparts will still exist on the outside, but we will only have direct experience with their images. There are many chambers and pavilions in Paradise, one lovelier than the other. For example, a mansion will have many rooms in it, and there will be many blessings in each room, a whole string of blessings. Imagine a city, where you turn onto a road and enter a house and then the rooms in that house, you open a shelf and see something in it; such a chain of blessings. Well each of the chambers in the mansions of Paradise is like a whole separate world. When you enter a room, the objects in it are a whole separate world of their own. We are told that women have clothes to wear, they wear seven different layers of clothing, though all seven are visible to the onlooker.  For example, one can see the first layer, and if one wishes one can see the second and the third. That is one can see all her seven different layers of clothing. Men can also be seen with seven different sets of clothes.

OUR PROPHET’S (MAY ALLAH BLESS HIM AND GRANT HIM PEACE) INTERCESSION FOR THE PEOPLE OF PARADISE ON THE DAY OF RECKONING

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON CAY TV (25 February 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
When believers go to the Hereafter, they will take their place alongside all the prophets and teachers. For example, our Prophet (saas), that beauty, will be there like a great light before the Muslim community. Almighty Allah will ask whether or not such and such a person should enter Paradise. This is intended as a compliment to our Prophet (saas) and for that person to taste the love of our Prophet (saas). Otherwise, someone destined for Paradise will enter it, but a style as if they enter Paradise by way of our Prophet (saas) is employed there. That is known as intercession, insha’Allah. Our Prophet (saas) will say, ‘O Lord, that is a good person. I intercede for him. He is a believer and very devout.’  In that way he enters the Paradise with him insha’Allah. That is intended as a beauty, insha’Allah.

WILL CHRISTIANS OR JEWS BE ABLE TO ENTER PARADISE?

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON TEMPO TV  (3 February 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
Let’s take the example of a Jew who believes in the Oneness of Allah. There’s salat and prostration in the Torah. He has a strong fear of Allah and is punctilious about what is lawful and unlawful and he has not become acquainted with Islam. These people are known as the Ahl al-Fatrat [People of interregnum]. If such people are very sincere, very honest in the sight of Allah, one may hope that they may enter Paradise. We cannot say they cannot go to Paradise, because according to the words of the Qur’an, “Allah’s honest servants will be saved.” Allah has provided only one measure, and no more; sincerity. If Allah regards someone as very sincere they may of course hope to enter Paradise, even if they are unacquainted with Islam and the Qur’an. It is impossible for anyone acquainted with the Qur’an to hold any other view because the Qur’an is so clear. An honest person will immediately admit the fact when he looks at the Qur’an.

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON CAY TV (31 January 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
There is a verse of the Qur’an which says, “The religion with Allah is Islam.” One religion. Islam is the one religion. But Christianity believes in the trinity. Allah strongly condemns the trinity belief in the Qur’an. They say that Allah is three (Allah is beyond this), and that is out of the question. That is incompatible with monotheism. We must say that Allah is One. It is most important to say that Allah is One. At the moment they are making a very grave error. That is what it means by the Prophet Jesus’ (pbuh) smashing the idols and slaying the pig when he returns. It means he will eliminate belief in the trinity and will eliminate heretical beliefs, and that he will pronounce on what is lawful and unlawful on the basis of the Qur’an. But the Qur’an says, I seek refuge in Allah from the cursed satan; “Only My servants who are righteous in the sight of Allah will be saved.” Sincere servants. One has to have sincerity. True sincerity. Being a Muslim is not enough. A Muslim also has to have sincerity. But even if the People of the Book hold out against the true nature of the Qur’an, the ruling in the Qur’an is clear. Allah knows the truth, but if they reject the Qur’an out of pride and lack of consideration, they cannot be Muslims.

But for instance, a person does not know about the Qur’an, is ignorant, a Christian. He believes in the Oneness of Allah and performs his salat (prayer) to the best of his knowledge of the New Testament. The New Testament speaks of salat. He fasts, is careful over what is lawful and unlawful and believes in the Oneness of Allah. One may hope for such people. If someone has never been told about the religion, then he is one of the People of Interregnum. One may hope that such a person will be able to enter Paradise if he is very, very sincere. One may have hope for a person who has no knowledge, who has never been told or taught about the religion. But if someone knowingly and deliberately insists on rejecting the Qur’an even though he knows it is true, then the pronouncement of the Qur’an on that is clear, too.

HUMAN CREATION HAS BEEN CREATED IN COMPLIANCE WITH PARADISE

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON MAVI KARADENIZ TV (3 February 2009)


People like very bright things, do they not? That is why women’s clothes are very eye-catching. For example, a diamond on a ring immediately catches the eye. This stems from a predisposition to Paradise in the human soul. It is given us as an instinct. It is Allah Who causes us to love those gems. Because we are already instinctively prepared for Paradise, we are literally hypnotized when we see them. Paradise enters our minds, and we subconsciously delight in it, albeit all unawares. When we see a green place, for instance, we like it because of a predisposition to Paradise in us, and we think of ever more perfect versions.  Our love of those precious stones also comes from our heavenly instinct. It is a pleasure that stems from knowing Paradise.

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON TEMPO TV (3 February 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
When people pick up an apple, it is never a perfect apple, of course. They know there will always be the best one. Whoever you ask will know that there can always be a more perfect apple or cherry or banana. Nobody totally likes his home or clothing, and they always have the idea of something even better. This is a predisposition to Paradise that is encoded in people. The human soul is encoded with a predisposition for Paradise. A person is never satisfied with anything, and never really and truly likes it unless he finds its version in Paradise. No woman in this world is truly beautiful. People will always feel something is missing with her. That is, they intensely feel something absent in her. Nobody in this world ever finds the woman he is looking for, in the physical sense. Though of course there are women who are very splendid in her spirit. There are people who are very beautiful in soul and character. But there is much more of what people like in Paradise. Allah creates these things only very seldom in this world. For example, there is the real gold in Paradise, gold that is used a great deal. For example, there is very little gold in the gilding on that wood there, but it catches the eye and we really like it.

ADNAN OKTAR: We really enjoy seeing some gold leaf being used, or a piece of gold thread embroidery. There is very, very much embroidery in Paradise. That is also created in our brains. It does exist on the outside, but it is created in our brains and gives us much pleasure.

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON MAVI KARADENIZ TV (3 February 2009)

One of the delightful aspects of Paradise is this; there are mansions in Paradise that someone on the outside can see inside, and someone on the inside can see the outside.  One feature of Paradise is that there is crystal all over the place. Light is a beauty that is much used of in Paradise. Everything sparkles. Everything is finely embroidered and detailed. People are literally dazzled in Paradise. It is a beauty. That is what people always seek, if you notice. They always seek bright, sparkling water, transparence. That stems from a subconscious predisposition to Paradise that Allah bestows. One looks for a lake, albeit a small one. One looks for a river, though very small one. As long as there is water. People do not know, but that is an instinct, a predisposition to Paradise. For example, even a bright, sparkling small gem hypnotizes one. This is a quality of Paradise.

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON CAY TV (4 March 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
Of course a Muslim will be very tranquil, someone who thinks very deeply, who is forgiving, affectionate, considerate of those around, who strives for their happiness, is clean and well groomed and who makes his surroundings pleasanter. At home, he beautifies his house. He strives to ensure his body is well maintained, that his hair and clothing are well groomed, to speak nicely, to have pleasant facial expressions, to have a pleasant voice, for his home to have a pleasant atmosphere, to have good food and music around, and for everything to be agreeable. Because the believer’s soul cries out, “Paradise! Paradise!” It desires it. And it constantly seeks it in this world. When the believer desires that, Allah makes everywhere a Paradise for him. Constant perfection is a Muslim’s ideal.

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON EKIN TV (19 January 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
People from Paradise come here, people worthy of Paradise. And those deserving of Hell come from Hell. Because this world is but a single moment. I am saying that. For example, our Prophet (saas) was already in Paradise. That is, he did not go to Paradise only later. And our Prophet (saas) is in Paradise now. Our Prophet (saas) was in Paradise before coming here, before he was born.  Therefore, he came to this world from Paradise.

PEOPLE HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE TEST IN THIS WORLD IN ORDER TO BE HAPPY IN PARADISE

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON KANAL 35 (1 February 2009)


People cannot be happy if they go directly to Paradise. They must absolutely go through the test in this world. If they go to Paradise directly, they will be in the same position as Adam and Eve. They were not happy in Paradise. They were not happy in that sense. They looked for novelty. They did not, and were unable to, keep their word to Allah. But after undergoing this training, after experiencing suffering, hardship, difficulties, loyalty, fortitude, courage and all kinds of moral virtue, in other words, they then exhibit perfect moral values in Paradise until eternity, and the inhabitants of Paradise are constantly shown images of Hell.   They are shown on a screen. That ensures they constantly give thanks. Adam was never shown Hell. He did not see the screen with Hell on it when he was in Paradise. If he had, of course, Allah appreciates it, but who knows how he would have behaved? But that was his destiny. That is why people absolutely have to go through this training and be aware of Hell for the perfection of Paradise and in order to be happy there. Satan is insistently maintaining this claim, this obstinacy by drawing people into madness and irreligion. For every irreligious person, he tells Allah, "Look what I have done, look what the descendants of Adam you wanted me to prostrate myself before are doing." Satan’s aim is a classic model of pride and immorality. And he is still doing it today. 

ADNAN OKTAR’S INTERVIEW WITH TEMPO TV (24 March 2009)

People who entered Paradise directly would have behaved badly. Allah put Adam and Eve in Paradise, for example, and He put satan in Paradise, and you know what happened. That is what happens if you go there without training. Allah shows us that. He says in the Qur’an that Adam and Eve were disobedient. That He did not regard them as having a stable character. They were not loyal to their word. But satan behaves totally psychopathically. But after training, people are proper believers. In the Qur’an, Allah says, I seek refuge in Allah from the cursed satan: “Return to your Lord, well-pleasing and well-pleased! Enter among My servants! Enter My Garden.” Because Allah says, “‘O self at rest and at peace.” That is how it starts, that means stabilized. We are balanced out here, and we learn moral virtues, love, affection, fortitude and courage. These will all be the subjects of conversations when we go to Paradise. He says that they sit on thrones and hold conversations. What do people talk about in Paradise? Things that are done in this world. Details and images from there will be shown to them. We will discuss the love there, how they strove and struggled, how they exhibited proper moral virtues, and what the Prophets Moses (pbuh) and Jesus (pbuh) did. That is why we will love these excellent people very much, these holy ones.

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON KANAL 35  (21 March 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
I seek refuge in Allah from the cursed satan “O self at rest and at peace.” Almighty Allah says, "Return to your Lord, well-pleasing and well-pleased! (having attained balance and moderation) Enter among My servants! Enter My Garden!." What does this mean? It means we will enter the Hereafter with the training we have received. But satan will not intervene, meaning that is something extra. There will be nothing like satan’s giving us forgetfulness or doubts. We will go with the same conception of love, affection and care that we have here, now.

NOBODY CAN KNOW WHETHER ANYONE WILL GO TO PARADISE OR HELL

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON KACKAR TV (12 March 2009)


Of course, nobody can know whether anyone will go to Paradise or Hell. You know how they say that such a person is destined for Paradise or Hell. The person who says that does not know his destiny, does not know whether he will go to Paradise or Hell. He may go to Paradise, or he may go to Hell. That is made clear at one’s last breath. It is ordained by Allah, and can never be established beforehand. Sometimes, someone we imagine to be very saintly may go to Hell, or someone may go to Paradise who one never imagined would ever make it. In other words, it can never be clear. It is therefore unlawful to issue pronouncements about people on Allah’s behalf. No Muslim can say such things.

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON KANAL 35 (21 February 2009)

In the absence of any clear revelation, in the absence of any prophets with books of revelation saying that someone will go to Paradise, nobody can be certain of the future. But even though our Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) was told he would be going to Paradise, he was still punctilious about his religious observances and obeying Allah’s commands. Muslims will be like that. They will fear Allah, saying they have a fifty-fifty chance of going to Paradise or to Hell. This is also the root of love and passion. We learn this passion through love of Allah. Fear of Allah is the origin of profound love.  

BELIEVERS WILL CONSTANTLY REMEMBER ALLAH IN PARADISE

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON KANAL 35 (7 February 2009)


ADNAN OKTAR: We will constantly praise Allah in the Hereafter, thanks be to Allah. Alhamdulillah, Allah is beyond any flaws. We will each time be in awe. O Lord, we love you very much, we will say. We will say “we are in love with You.” Constant expressions of joy, Alhamdulillah. How great is Allah, we will say. We will constantly praise Him. Praise of Allah will predominate in Paradise. But there will be no salat (regular prayer), no fasting. There will be no giving alms, because everywhere will already be so wealthy. But fear of Allah will persist. Because people will constantly see Hell. But there will be no question of believers going to Hell, as believers fear Allah... They will fear Allah under whatever circumstances. They will fear Allah for all eternity. But they will have a huge appreciation of Paradise, insha’Allah.

WAS OUR PROPHET (MAY ALLAH BLESS HIM AND GRANT HIM PEACE) SHOWN PARADISE IN THIS WORLD?

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON TEMPO TV (10 March 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
Yes, our Prophet (saas) saw the realm of Hereafter, but Allah did not show him Paradise. Allah showed him Hell. He saw Hell and gave thanks to Allah, and made his comparisons. Because having seen Paradise, the influence of this world may be quite burdensome. That is, having a physical liking for other people or this world may be very difficult, because one will have compared them with Paradise. That is why our Prophet (saas) was not shown Paradise while he was in this world.

MARRIAGE IN PARADISE

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON KANAL 35 (1 February 2009)

PRESENTER:
In Paradise, will women be married to their husbands in this world?

ADNAN OKTAR: Of course. Allah says they will be under the trees with their husbands and children. Of course they will be with their husbands.  

PRESENTER: What if she has been married two or three times?

ADNAN OKTAR: Allah will give her the person with the greatest fear of Allah, he whom Allah approves of most. That is Allah’s criterion. We must look for the greatest measure of His approval in all things. I mean I could come here, or sit at home, or else go out to the shops and talk to people. I think Allah will most approve of my coming here, and I think I am doing the right thing.  In other words, something has its most truthful and very best form, that is what Allah wants. The very best of something is what most meets with Allah’s approval. That will also be the criterion for spouses in the Hereafter. Allah will give them to the person who most seeks His approval.

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON TEMPO TV (31 March 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
If a person’s spouse is pure and immaculate, and if that person has moral virtue and is a believer, then of course they will be together in Paradise. Almighty Allah makes that clear in verses. He says they are together with their spouses and children. Of course they will be together in the Hereafter. People will have children in the Hereafter. A person will be able to give birth whenever she wants a baby, after a very brief pregnancy. But it will involve no pain and will happen right away. It will happen the moment they desire it.

ADNAN OKTAR: That is a feature of Paradise.

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON CAY TV (25 February 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
Let me say that what counts is one’s position regarding faith in Allah, one’s degree of belief in Allah. It does not matter to Allah whose spouse it is. For example, Abu Lahab’s wife shared the same mindset and mentality, for which reason she was put in the same place. 

ADNAN OKTAR: But Pharaoh’s wife was a believer and a chaste woman, and one worthy of Paradise.  She left him, and did not espouse his views. She did not espouse his logic, his immoral philosophy. She followed along with the Prophet Moses (pbuh), and Allah has sent her to Paradise. The Prophet Noah’s wife, for instance, was a most abnormal woman, and Allah has put her in Hell. Allah separated her from Noah (pbuh). Lot’s wife was the same, and an unbeliever. Allah separated them. We can see from these few examples that it is fear of Allah to which Allah attaches importance.

ADNAN OKTAR: For example, an immoral person has a wife, a chaste believer. That woman leaves her husband, and Allah does not regard their union as valid. He separates them in the Hereafter. She counts as single in the Hereafter, and Allah will marry her to a male believer who has fear of Allah, whoever He regards as most desirous of His approval. Therefore, Allah’s approval is the main criterion in such matters. 

THE MUTUAL LOVE OF THE PEOPLE OF PARADISE

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON KANAL 35  (14 March 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
In fact, Allah shows what we are. Allah appears to test what we are, but that is not actually the case. Looked at it in terms of ilm al-ladun, the knowledge of Divine Providence, that is not the case. Because Allah knew what we would do, He has sent us to Paradise or to Hell. So there is actually no question of us being tested, of Allah investigating and learning about us. Allah already knows about us. He shows us to ourselves, shows us what we are. And we will experience the joy of that in Paradise. We will say we rendered such and such a service, did this and that, but in fact, it is Allah Who engages in these deeds. For example, you are now exhibiting virtuous behavior, and insha’Allah you will go to Paradise. If I see you have gone to Paradise, then, Allah willing, I will love you even more there. Because I will see the sacrifices you have made, I will see your virtues and lovable nature, I will know them in this world. Since I will go there with that knowledge, it will remain with me for ever, and I will therefore love you for ever with that knowledge. For example, one has a spouse. One sees their moral virtue. And that stays with one for ever. That is why a man loves his wife more than he does houris. It is because of that knowledge. Because he has seen her altruism, her courage, her fortitude, her kindness, her religious observances and all other kinds of behavior. Since he has absorbed that information, it will remain with him for all eternity, and he will also love that knowledge. But that is not the case with houris. He sees no virtue in houris in this world. Houris have to be virtuous in the Hereafter. That is why people love their wives far more in the Hereafter. Because they see much more manifestations of Allah in her, they are in a more acceptable position.

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON TEMPO TV (20 January 2009)

For example, our Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) refers to himself and adds Hamza (pbuh), Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and Hazrat Ali (pbuh) and the companions, saying ‘we are the sayyid, that is the lords, of the people of Paradise. Why? Because they all suffered. We will love them for that in the Hereafter. Why do we admire the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) so much in the Hereafter? Because he suffered hardship. Why do we admire the Prophet Moses (pbuh)? Because he suffered hardship. Because they displayed a powerful love of Allah, because they felt such an intense and fervent love.

PARADISE AND HELL ARE ALSO CREATED IN ILLUSORY FORM

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON AKS TV (14 April 2009)

For example, when we look at the gardens of Paradise we will lose our senses from love. The same is with its furniture, food and drink. But, the truth of the matter is that, all of these things will be bestowed as images. But people will not know they are images. They will be bestowed in the greatest clarity. One will be unable even to wonder whether they might be mere images. Nobody will have the power to do that. But these things will be given as images. They will exist on the outside, but that is how people will perceive them. They will perceive them in their brains, heads and souls. But the originals, matter, will exist on the outside in Paradise. The original of matter does exist in the outside world.

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON TEMPO TV (3 February 2009)

Our Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) says the mansions of Paradise resemble crystal. People move in and out of them. There are small streams all around, small streams of Paradise. Paradise consists of layers. Paradise consists of perfect houses, more beautiful than one can ever imagine. We are given a glimpse in this world. The houses of this world are still created in our brains and the dwellings of Paradise will also be created in our brains. The birds and animals of Paradise, everything, will be created in our brains. We can never have direct experience of the original of Paradise. There is an original, external Paradise, but we will always experience the images of it.

SIGHT IS VERY SHARP IN PARADISE

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON CAY TV (25 February 2009)


ADNAN OKTAR: For instance, we now see the world, but although it is three-dimensional, the image we see is two-dimensional. That is a deficiency of this world. In Paradise the image will be very sharp and three-dimensional. It will be very clear. It is a very sound phenomenon. All senses, sounds and tastes, will be very sharp and distinct. There is some kind of blurriness in this world. You cannot hear a sound that is far away, but in Paradise you will hear even the most distant noise. You can see the furthest object in Paradise. Myopic eyes are very weak in this world, a weakness given to human beings. For example, you can detect the most far-off scent. You can reach the furthest thing instantaneously. You do not say it is too far away to get to. For example, you see a friend in the distance, and you are by his side the next moment. He might be 1 million kilometers away, but you are still with him instantaneously.

ADNAN OKTAR: There is a speed that is even greater than that of light. The speed of imagination. With the speed of the imagination, a person reaches his destination immediately, while one still needs to follow a specific route when traveling at the speed of light. But not there, which is created so one can be there instantaneously. By Allah’s leave, these things will happen. It is useful for us to know the general logic behind all these things, though much more comprehensive information is available of course on the www.harunyahya.com and www.harunyahya.org web sites.


ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON AKS TV (14 April 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
Allah says that vision is sharper in the Hereafter, that people will see more clearly in three dimensions. We can only see clearly for 400-500 meters, after which things are blurred. But in the Hereafter even things 3 or 10 kilometers away will be very sharp and clear. Allah says that our vision on that day will be very sharp. It will have an extraordinary nature.

DIRECT CAUSES WILL BE DONE AWAY WITH IN PARADISE


ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON AKS TV (14 April 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
People have no internal organs. But their eyes see, their ears hear, and these things reach the brain. People will see directly without the need for anything. All natural causes will be done away with. For example, a car will run by itself without having an engine or any petrol in it. It will just go by itself. There will be illumination. Things will be illuminated without the Sun. The objects in Paradise light themselves. The Sun is needed in this world, a direct cause, but since there are no such direct causes in the Hereafter, things will illuminate themselves in the absence of direct causes. Allah says that fruit and vegetables never decrease in quantity. The moment a piece of fruit is picked, another piece appears. You can eat as much as you like and it will be replaced. Paradise is the abode of happiness.

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON CAY TV (25 February 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
Allah says of Paradise that "no earthly desire has tasted and no eye seen it." It is utterly amazing and most beautiful. One of the best features of Paradise is that nowhere grows old or fades, and everything is positive. As you know, everything is created with its opposite in this world.

ADNAN OKTAR: Like good and bad or day and night, in Paradise there will be only positive aspects. That is the artistry of Allah. The gate of Paradise is uniquely beautiful. You look at the doors of the houses and they are all separately decorated. The chairs have a beauty of their own. So we look at those beauties and give constant thanks to Allah. The human soul burns with love of Allah in Paradise. You look at a pitcher in Paradise and you give thanks to Allah. You can even talk to it. You can tell it to turn a bit to the right and it will do so. And if you tell it bring you a cool drink, it will bring you one. Pour it out, you say, and it will pour it into a glass. Go back to your place you say, and back it goes. Paradise is very pleasant and entertaining like that. Allah has created it specially to be like that. But in this world we are bound by direct causes. I cannot bring something to me without stretching my hand out for it. I am bound by direct causes.  

ADNAN OKTAR: Yet it is not my hand that brings it here. Allah creates that in my head. He creates my hand as the direct cause.

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON KACKAR TV (12 February 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:... There are always direct causes here. For instance, were it not for the camera here they could not see me, but there is no need for cameras in Heaven. It is created without direct causes. For example, in Paradise your brother can look and see you, in other words there is no need for a camera system.
 
ADNAN OKTAR: For instance, it is enough for him to wish to see someone to see them. The image forms. But here, you have to turn on the television, press the buttons, and there have to be cameras and lighting. Several direct causes have to be created, and that eliminates our free will.

ADNAN OKTAR: In other words, since we are tested, if we obtained images of everywhere without cameras everyone would believe, and the test would be lifted. Satellite antenna and cameras are used as instruments so the test should continue, and people are not visible to us in their homes without satellite antennae and cameras. Images are created as a miracle in every home. Allah creates them as a miracle in every home. He uses the camera and satellite systems as His instruments. He creates them so people will regard the phenomenon as quite normal, though the fact is that images are directly created in everyone’s brain.  

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON TEMPO TV (3 February 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
For example, he says, “there are such mansions in Paradise that people on the inside can see the outside, and those on the outside can see the inside.” A mansion made entirely out of crystal, for instance. “One day, the Messenger said there are such mansions in Paradise that there were no hooks to hold them up and no pillars to prop them up. The people who heard this asked how the inhabitants would enter those mansions. The Messenger (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) said they would fly in like birds.” But here, of course, we need an engine to fly from one place to another, or a propeller, we need a direct cause. We fly, but using vehicles to do so. Those vehicles do not apply in Paradise.

ADNAN OKTAR: There is no need for any vehicle. Everything happens by people just thinking of it. Like in a dream, for instance; when we want to fly we use a plane, we get in a vehicle and go to the airport and board the plane, and we fly by means of the engine of the plane. The plane then lands, in Ankara say. We get our bags and alight. We experience this all very perfectly. We later realize we were asleep and it was all a dream. But the plane there needs no petrol or diesel or anything. 

ADNAN OKTAR: That is what Paradise is like.

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON TEMPO TV (3 February 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
This is also the case in this world. For example, I want to drink some tea. It appears that I stretch my hand out for it, though it is actually Allah Who brings the cup to my lips. My hand does not bring the tea to me, Allah just uses it as a direct cause. It is also Allah Who creates the tea in the cup. A person cannot do this. It is a law of Allah, but one that everyone who makes a deep use of his mind can comprehend. Otherwise, a person who becomes caught up with superficial direct causes imagines that everything is the result of such direct causes. He imagines that biscuits come from a factory, or meat from the butcher’s shop. But Allah creates the meat. It is crated at that moment. You imagine it comes from the store, but Allah uses the store as a direct cause. Tables are laid. Allah sets all tables. Tables are set as a miracle, but people are unaware of this because of the direct causes involved. Since these direct causes do not apply in Paradise, tables are set all of a sudden, fruit forms instantaneously. There are no direct causes involved in an object going from one place to another. For instance, the cars in Paradise need no engine and petrol, they just move spontaneously. Cars in this world do need engines and petrol, though. There need to be direct causes for them to move. If cars were to move without engines and petrol, people would no longer enjoy the use of their free wills and would have to have faith. But since there is no test in Paradise there are no direct causes, either. Everything moves of its own accord. People just have to think of it, to imagine it, for it to happen. 

EVERYTHING IS CONSCIOUS IN PARADISE, EVEN OBJECTS

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON KACKAR TV (8 January 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
All the objects in Paradise are intelligent, they all have understanding. In order for us to turn the television on here, for instance, we press the remote and it comes on. But it is again Allah Who turns the television on. A miracle takes place, though Allah appears to use the remote as a direct cause. But there are no such direct causes in Paradise. For example, if you tell that flower bowl to come to you, it does so. You pick a fruit from its tree, and as soon as you do so it reappears in the tree. You eat food for instance, as you keep eating that food it keeps reappearing in the dish. And that is perfectly logical, because Allah creates it as an image in our brains. Matter does exist on the outside, but we have direct experience of an image of it in our brains. And it is logical for the image not to come to an end. It would be a miracle if the image did come to an end, for the food we are eating to be finished. For example, there is no dust or dirt in Paradise. There is no blurring in anything we normally experience as an image. We watch a film and there is no blurring. Even if you watch the film a thousand times it will still be pristine and the image will never be spoiled. Allah says that in the Hereafter. He will cause Muslims to live in the very finest places. Allah is referring to mansions. To the tents of Paradise. These are the most lovely places one can imagine, perfect images created instinctively. When we eat fruit, we will say this is the fruit we have always been longing for. When we see a woman there, we will say that she is the kind of woman we have always longed for. When we see a house we will say that is the kind of house we have always longed for. Allah says there are small rivers, streams of gold running in gentle curves, as well as bigger rivers. People have a natural love of water, and Allah creates this as an instinct. For example, the sea lifts our spirits when we see it.  Houses built on places with views of the sea or along the sides of lakes are always more expensive, aren’t they? Allah bestows this as a heavenly instinct. We have an instinct that draws us to water, a love of water. We have a love of beautiful places, but this is never satisfied in this world, though it still exists as an instinct inside us. For instance, there are no perfect women in this world, and no perfect homes or perfect fruit, but we still feel these instinctively. When we eat an apple, we say that there must be better fruit than this somewhere, but we cannot find. Yet in Paradise there is the best of everything.

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON TEMPO TV (13 January 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
For example, you pick an apple, but that apple is still on the branch. You eat, but you are not satisfied, and there is always food in the bowl. You tell the bowl to come to you, and up it gets. It is intelligent. Everything is intelligent. In fact, the mind of Allah is everywhere, but He does not put it into action for us here. That is what happened with the Prophet Moses’ (pbuh) staff. The mind and power of Allah are everywhere. The might of Allah was also in the Prophet Moses’ (pbuh) staff. Moses (pbuh) cast the staff down and Allah turned it into a snake that very moment.  This is something quite extraordinary. He then told the Prophet Moses (pbuh) to pick it up, and when he did so it straightaway turned back into a staff. Wood turns into a snake, and then the snake turns back into wood. That is also how it is in Paradise. Everything is conscious. For instance, whenever one wants to fly somewhere one can do so. One can fly through the air with no wings and using no vehicle. One can travel where one wants to be instantaneously, one just has to think of it. One can travel somewhere hundreds of thousands of kilometers away in a very short space of time, in less than a second, momentarily. Since there is no space, Allah will create the place for us instantaneously. In other words, it will form in people’s brains. There will be matter on the outside, but it will form in people’s brains.

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON KACKAR TV  (12 March 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
Objects move, whatever object you ask a question it will give you a proper answer. You ask how it is, and it will say it is very well. Cats and dogs and rabbits. You ask what they are up to, and they will say they are walking around, thanks be to Allah. You call them to and they will come and sit on your shoulder. You can talk with them, and then send them off. But that consciousness exists only in Paradise.

WILL THE DJINN AND ANGELS BE VISIBLE TO PEOPLE IN PARADISE?

ADNAN OKTAR’S LIVE INTERVIEW ON CAY TV (25 February 2009)


ADNAN OKTAR: There is no need for them not to be seen. Of course they will be visible. They will appear in the guise of normal, attractive human beings. Because they are also our believer brethren. They listen to our talk and benefit from us and they also read the Qur’an. But they will be visible there. Demons are not visible here, but they will be visible in Hell, they will all be visible.

MUSLIMS’ SOLE AIM IS TO EARN THE APPROVAL OF ALLAH, AND ALLAH WILL GRANT US PARADISE IF HE SO CHOOSES

ADNAN OKTAR'S LIVE INTERVIEW ON KACKAR TV (29 January 2009)

ADNAN OKTAR:
... True believers go to Paradise, and I tell people the secret of that. But one does not worship Allah simply in order to get to Paradise and be happy. One performs one’s religious observations to earn His approval. One’s sole aim is the approval of Allah. A believer’s sole aim is the approval of Allah. But if He grants us Paradise, that is a blessing from Him. We are content with whatever Allah may give us. We are content with all outcomes and we submit to Allah. A believer will still be content with Allah if He sends him to Hell. Or to Paradise. Allah forbid, but even if a believer goes to Hell he will still burn with the love of Allah there. But believers will not go to Hell. I am saying that for reasons of clarity, otherwise nobody who burns with love of Allah will go to Hell.
