ADNAN OKTAR: Hazrat Mahdi (as) is a person whom you can see. He is born of a father and mother and his place of appearance is Istanbul. In Shiite sources, there are maybe a hundred hadiths that he will emerge from Istanbul. He comes from the East to the West and it is said that he will cross the sea. If this is so, then America, freemasons and the Knights of the Templar are all ready for Hazrat Mahdi (as). They accept it. The CIA, the FBI, all of them are ready and accept a Mahdi who supports love, prevents bloodshed and aims to eradicate weapons.

ADNAN OKTAR: The Mahdi is where the Holy Relics are, insha’Allah. Allah kept and protected the Holy Relics here in Istanbul; they could have been destroyed during the enemy invasion but it is not in destiny. For example, nothing happened to the sword of our Prophet (saas) till today; and nothing happened to his standard. And our Prophet (saas) also says that there is a second standard and the Mahdi will open it. He says that it is never opened and that standard, made of gazelle skin, is at Topkapi Palace.
That standard will be found with the Holy Relics, insha’Allah. And this will cause great excitement for Muslims, insha’Allah, but this will cause great excitement. You will, insha’Allah, witness those days.

Adnan Oktar: Bediüzzaman Said Nursi openly says that the Mahdi will appear in Istanbul. And he also gives a date. He says, “He will come in 1400.” He says this in eight separate places. He says, “He will destroy Darwinism and materialism.” Islam will prevail. Muslims will be subject to him. He will lead Muslims. He will be their imam. He will be the imam of the Christian, Jewish and Muslim world.

ADNAN OKTAR: The government has been through a lot to become the government. Tayyip Hodja has been through a lot. The system of the Mahdi is moving ahead just fine and Tayyip Hodja is also helping the system of the Mahdi.
