If you believe in God, it would be cruel not to wake up for the morning prayer. That is because you promise God and say, "I love you," to God: You say, "I appreciate your blessings and I'm thankful to you." But then you say, "I do not want to thank you!" How is that acceptable?

2

One wakes up for the morning prayers with love. God created you with all these details and gives you uninterrupted blessings. In the morning God gives you food, He feeds you at lunch time and also at dinner. He gives you your breath constantly and has your heart working uninterruptedly night and day. If He stops your heart for a moment, you would be dead. If He stops your breathing for a moment, you would be dead. If you consider prayers to be too much for God, that would be foul play against God.

3

For the survival of our country, for securing our unity and integrity, this policy of hatred should be put away. The retrogressive spirit should be put away. That is because hatred is the main policy in the traditionalist bigoted mindset. There is hatred towards everything in that spirit.

4

An immense spirit of hatred prevails among youth. Hatred towards Russia, hatred towards Israel, hatred towards Greece, hatred towards Iran, hatred among themselves, hatred against other parties, hatred against other football teams, hatred against other cities; I mean they develop an incomprehensible spirit of hatred. Overthrowing such societies would then be very easy. That is why before all else this spirit of hatred should go away. That is one of the most urgent matters.

5

Once they attempt to subvert a country, first they turn their people into loveless, vindictive, crude, brutal, crass, blood-shedding wild people far removed from aesthetics and arts that spread seeds of hatred around, who do not love any race or any society. After that, annihilating those people, wiping out that society, becomes very easy. That is the preliminary phase of that destruction.

6

Even the prettiest, the most beautiful body will disintegrate under the ground. Life is very short: We thank God for the current form He gave us but it is not acceptable for one to get attached to that body. When the grave of even the most beautiful one in the world is opened there is nothing other than a skeleton, a skull and some bones. All those strong men, all those sturdy men, are in their graves with their decayed bones.

7

Galata is sacred for the British deep state. They carried out all their malice such as murders and torture there. It was the center of their intelligence. They used the Galata Tower for intelligence.

8

Let us think that no one objects when we preach religion and that they accept everything we tell them, that everyone supports and applauds us and we've gone to the Hereafter, what would happen then? The good deeds attained would be one in a million. But if we meet opposition, if we strive in the path of God, you would be attaining millions of good deeds. God creates resistance specifically for Muslims to attain a lot of good deeds. It is presented to Muslims by God as a blessing.

9

Since Galata is the center of the Mevlevi dervish monasteries, the members of the British deep state attach great importance to Galata. That district is crucial for them; they regard it as the meeting point of their spies, of their agents.

10

Turkey should be a model country. Primarily the British deep state is trying to annihilate Turkey for the last 200 years. Instead of being annihilated, turn Turkey into an ultramodern country that the whole Islamic world would take as a role model so that Turkey would serve the Islamic world very good.

11

The British deep state wants to present all the Muslims as ISIS and Al-Qaida followers and create a terror bloc in the world so they developed a strategy to move ahead with the mentality claiming that “Muslims are terrorists and all terrorists are the same, they are a whole, we should annihilate them altogether." That is to say they are trying to create a perception equating the word “terrorist” with the word “Muslim". That is a grave danger.

12

The Western deep states, primarily the British deep state, have developed a new trick, a new technique; they want to define Muslims as terrorists as a whole. I mean they want to equate the word “terrorist” with “Muslim”. That is what they work for.

13

One needs to be compassionate towards Muslims in any case; that is because if one looks with rage, he would have to discard almost ninety-nine percent of Muslims. For instance, you call ISIS terrorists - we are of course against the violence they are inflicting but the majority of Muslims in Afghanistan, Pakistan and India have the same mentality because they are educated that way. That is why instead of discarding them, we need to concentrate on saving them and approaching them with compassion.

14

God is the One Who is Strong and Powerful. We are God's humble servants in need: All power belongs to Almighty God. Whatever Almighty God ordains in destiny will take place. We are human beings who've submitted to God. We act on the power God has given us.

15

It is religiously unlawful to hate inoffensive, innocent Jews but one merely dislikes the individuals that are sinners and persecutors among them, if there are any. One struggles against those criminals within the framework of the laws and the legal system. But if you stand against the whole of the Israeli nation that would be religiously unlawful; that is not compatible with Islam.

16

There is no place for hatred towards Jews and Christians in Islam. They are protected in the Qur'an as the People of Book. You cannot be hostile towards their synagogues, towards their churches. God tells us in the Qur'an that Muslims can marry Jewish and Christian women. Our Prophet (saas) also had Jewish and Christian wives.

17

Genuine, sincere, honest, modern devout people should remain in the forefront everywhere. A modern, sincere religious person would be a great guarantee for an atheist as well as a Jew and a Christian; that is because he fears God and acts on his good conscience. That is a guarantee for everyone.

18

A Muslim should be joyful and enthusiastic. When one is sad or distressed about something, or is bothered by something, his body would want to lull itself to protect itself from that, to get rid of that feeling. But if he is cheerful and merry, the body would not want to sleep but would want to live life.

19

The disintegration of Turkey would mean the ruin of the Islamic world. This would not be like an ordinary country being broken into pieces; Turkey is the brain of the Turkish world. The death of Turkey would mean the death of the Turkish world. She is the brain of the Islamic world. The death of Turkey would mean the ruin of the Islamic world.

20

If you tell those who are weak in faith to remain sleepless for the good pleasure of God, for serving Islam, they would fall down and faint; but if you tell them that you will give them a car they would remain standing for days without sleep. That is where we see the indignity, vulgarity and animalistic characteristics of the lower-self.

21

If one lets his lower-self be, it instantly causes trouble by acting animalistically. I mean it shows the characteristics of an animal.

22

The human body behaves like an animal when left to its own devices; one instantly gets hungry, becomes sleepy, gets afraid and acts selfishly. One should balance that animalistic aspect with faith and not let the body behave animalistically.

23

The Companions of our Prophet (saas) gave a struggle in the Path of God. But the hypocrites came up with many excuses saying 'their houses are exposed' or that they would have gone with them had they known how to give a struggle. However, if they were told that they would be given pouches full of gold if they went and struggled even though they didn't know how, they would have gone without hesitation. That is because it would have served their interests. Just like that, one's interests should be in showing good morality. One should replace gold, money with faith and good conscience. Otherwise one would become swinish.

24

In their twisted minds, hypocrites do not respect Muslims but feel an incredible respect for unbelievers and hold them in high esteem.

25

The Qur'an is a very pure Book and an amazing wisdom enwraps the Qur'an.

26

If one is insincere and dishonest, one tends to regard Muslims as polluted and unbelievers as vivid and brilliant. Everything becomes reversed in such minds. But when a Muslim looks and sees the existence of God sincerely - and one would instantly realize the existence of God when he is sincere and does not strain himself - with great clarity and with all His Glory, and instantly abides by the wisdom in the Qur'an.

27

If one is dishonest and insincere, one searches for denial. Such people look for that in books, in the internet, in anywhere they look. They try to find unbelievers. They have an admiration for unbelievers. They cannot forget their unbeliever friends from them their past and always imagine they will be happy with them around.

28

When we are honest and sincere, without any difficulty, we instantly realize the existence of the Great Power, the Creator, of God. But if one is insincere and dishonest, one tries to get into any evil or dark channel that could be found in order to deny the existence of God.

29

When there is rage, hatred, anger, lovelessness, lack of compassion and selfishness, it darkens the eyes, the skin and the tongue. One becomes unable to speak. Take notice of those who do not embrace love and you will see that they are incapable of speaking, that they can hardly utter a word or two.

30

Love settles in one's eyes and eyes become beautiful. One's glances become beautiful. Love settles in one's tongue, it makes one's speech beautiful. It settles in one's vocal cords, it makes one's voice beautiful. For instance, it settles in one's skin and the skin becomes beautiful because of that love. I mean it brings beauty and contentment to everything.

31

When you call on love, it instantly comes. Love is very easy. The moment love comes, it settles in the heart, in the mind. Actually love already loves man; loves God, consequently loves man. When love reaches one's mind, it gladdens one's mind. When love settles in one's heart, it gladdens the heart. And it instantly opens one's horizons.

32

Love comes to us with a simple intent. Love waits for us at our door. You merely say “love, come to me," and it comes instantly. Love enwraps one. One feels a glow of love. Love is ready to serve in one's soul. That is how God created us but people keep love waiting at the door and don't let it in. They put filth, aggressiveness, grievance, coldness, skepticism, cruelness, impertinence, crassness and rudeness in its place and leave love waiting at their door.

33

Love is presented as if it is a luxury or something lavish for the world. Satan has trained people in that attitude for centuries. Right now, when people are told about love, they perceive it as if it is something far away, something very difficult to attain. Actually we are already living intertwined with love. Love is a natural need for a person, like one's food.

34

One says, "I do not have love or respect but I have money." What a horrible thing to offer a woman, what a nightmare this is for them: What a life full of misery. Even if one lives in a mansion, in a palace, every single day would bring pain. Without love, without being valued, what good would a meal or a luxurious dress do for anyone?

35

The British deep state conceals itself sneakily. The majority of the drug trafficking and mafia groups in the world are under their command. They are able to make them do all kinds of dirty work. Terror organizations, for instance the PKK, the blood-shedding organizations known throughout the world, they all are under their command; they are able to instigate dissension and stir up trouble very easily in a country by means of them.

36

It is assumed that many of the intelligence agencies are under the control of the CIA: The fact of the matter is, however, that many of them are under the control of the British deep state. Abdullah Öcalan is aware of the involvement of the British deep state and he says that they were the ones who started the PKK movement.

37

The British deep state orchestrated the collapse of the Ottomans. It was the British deep state that drew up the borders of Syria and Iraq. It was the British deep state who took the Haram Ash-Sharif, Mecca and Medina from the Ottomans. It is again the British deep state who tries to strengthen the PKK in the Southeast of Turkey and make them establish a separate state in the region.

38

The minds of many of those around the Prophet Moses (pbuh) were wrapped up with the unbelievers. I mean they'd gone to the desert but they did not forget the life they'd had back in Egypt. They were infatuated with everything about Egypt, they admired that ancient Egyptian culture, those cows, the life back there, their way of eating and drinking. A great majority of them remained in that insane spirit until the prophet Moses (pbuh) passed.

39

Family, getting married, having children are all matters that the hypocrites prefer to religion. That is why they remain irresolute between religion and their idols. Hypocrites idolize their families; they idolize their children. They regard them as leverage against Islam.

40

Have a look at satan; whoever satan advocates, there is a malice behind them and there is a beauty in those they refrain to speak about and those they avoid. Satan avoids good people and wouldn't want to talk about them; talking about those good people offends and disturbs it very much.

41

Struggle against the satan requires patience, will-power and wisdom: That is because satan is intelligent, it is obstinate, perfidious and a trickster. Muslims should be very intelligent, patient and should be able to make good plans: That is because satan does not give up easily and the system of the antichrist would not die instantly. Every single plan they make against Muslims should be spoiled one after the other very patiently.

42

The system of the Mahdi is what disturbs the antichrist the most in the End Times. Because the system of the Mahdi is the system that will tear it apart with reason, science and knowledge, the system of the antichrist directly targets the system of the Mahdi.

43

Social Darwinism is the basic philosophy of the British deep state. That is why they are trying to fastidiously trying to keep Darwinism alive.

44

Darwinism is the religion of the antichrist. It is a system under the tutelage of the British deep state. The whole world is obliged to teach it at schools.

45

In order to set our conscience in motion, God shows us inoffensive people being oppressed and killed, being burned. If we do not act on our good conscience we would be committing a crime and that is unacceptable. We will serve Islam with all our might.

46

One should be fastidious about religion, protect and watch over Islam strongly. God protects us and watches over us. He gives us our eyes, nose, mouth and ears. He makes our hearts beat non-stop. We would drop in our tracks if it didn't. He gives us food, He creates colors for us, He creates voices, He creates beauties. God is constantly attending to all our needs.

47

Fear of the future is a matter of faith: One can defeat that fear with faith. It is a sign of failure in this trial if one cannot put his trust in his faith. That fear should definitely be defeated.

48

The fear of the future is what prevents people from becoming devout, practicing Muslims. Otherwise they would serve God, the Qur'an and Islam. But instead they waste all their time with saving money, having a career and getting married.

49

The British deep state is the one orchestrating all the dissensions and persecution created by the regime in Syria right now: The British deep state is also the one orchestrating what is going on in Iraq. At the time, it was the British deep state that drew the borders of Syria and those borders were drawn with rulers. It is again the British deep state that supports the PKK right now.

50

Poverty might appear to be a pitiful concept on the outside, but actually poverty makes people humble, devout and good-mannered. It makes people appreciative of blessings and makes them recognize the value of those blessings.

51

People believe in God's forgiveness but they do not want to be forgiving; that is not acceptable. Just like a person knows that God would forgive him, he has to know to be forgiving as well.

52

Forgiveness is a characteristic God appreciates greatly. That is because revenge might give a lowly pleasure to one's soul, but forgiving is hard; I mean it [forgiveness] necessitates will-power and wisdom. That is because in forgiveness one does not achieve satisfaction, but revenge might bring satisfaction. That is why God takes forgiveness as a basis.

53

If you do not put your trust in God, God would not give you people that you can trust. He would make everyone of them a trouble for you. If you take on God, God would take on you. If you regard God as powerless - may God forbid - God would make you come across powerless people.

54

A Muslim should fiercely stay away from fear of the future. That [fear of the future] means you do not put your trust in God but in that house you bought, or in the money you've saved up somewhere. God would devastate you. Furthermore, what good would that money be to you once God brings troubles upon you? Such a thing is not acceptable. No one dies out of hunger, no one who placed his trust in God has ever been harmed.

55

Fear of the future is religiously unlawful, a Muslim cannot think that way. God is the One Who creates every single second of our lives. All the precautions you take might come back to you as troubles. For instance, you might think about saving money but that might all end up going for cancer treatment or somehow otherwise be spent. You buy a house and God makes it collapse on top of you. One cannot put his trust in such things, but only in God. Anything other than that would be very wrong and would offend God.

56

Sentimentality and anger are beneath Muslims. That is because a Muslim always acts with God in mind. He always thinks rationally and equitably. He never forgets that God is the One Who creates everything, even those things that appear to be the most horrible incidents.

57

God is the Creator of even the maddest or the most abnormal acts. Individuals are not the perpetrators; no one can ever act outside destiny. That is why one needs to be moderate, poised and rational when evaluating incidents taking place.

58

A Muslim would not respond to foolishness with foolishness, to instability with instability, to rage with rage, to anger with anger. One needs to be rational and always be aware of the fact that God is with him; that is because God is the One Who makes the others do those abnormal acts. Consequently a Muslim would be aware of the fact that no one is an independent being, so he would not worry.

59

One should never severe his connection with God. Many things could happen that might appear to be against him, many things might go wrong, but one should nevertheless follow a very rational policy that doesn't mind stepping back when necessary. Muslims are humble people and assume God's sense of right and wrong. Acting moderately as much as possible is what suits a Muslim. Sudden and unrestrained reactions would block one's rationality.

60

Assuming a humble attitude would not bring abatement for Muslims, it is not something depreciative. A Muslim is not in a position to be worried about his pride, but rather about the good of Islam.

61

God does not want us to have only medium wisdom while preaching Islam and disseminating His Message. He wants us to have superior wisdom. Islam would not be disseminated with a mediocre rationality and wisdom; that is because some anti-Islam fronts are in a struggle against Muslims in an ambitious alliance by advocating numerous other philosophies.

62

The traditionalist orthodox system imagines that the more they exert pressure in the name of God, the more they move closer to God: Actually, in such an environment, not only do people not get closer to God but they drift further apart from God and religion and they also lose their mental stability.

63

Modernity, before all else, brings about sanity. In a bigoted system, the human mind cannot operate normally. In a bigoted environment people become half-insane. Look around and you will see that many of them are mentally unstable. In modern societies, the human mind operates sanely and rationally.

64

We need to be a very modern European country. This is something our government should emphasize the most. Without modernity, there would be no progress in science, in arts. Without modernity we would not have any military power. We would become a classical Middle Eastern country and collapse gradually.

65

The government should make Turkey modern. All the institutions of the state should be modernized. Efforts should be made to modernize our people. The buildings, life in general, the system, everything should be modernized. Otherwise there would be a grave danger.

66

Almighty God conceals Himself under covers. Those who can see beneath those covers are very rare; I mean those who are able to uncover, let us say, sixty of those may be seventy covers are very few. People of the heart uncover those covers and the more they do so, the more they become closer to Almighty God.

67

The state should be looking out for the system of the Mahdi with all its might. That is because in the system of the Mahdi, there is no intervention to the state. The system of the Mahdi would not interfere in politics; that is because it has a feature that unites the Turkish world, and it is also a system against bigotry, a system that fully encourages modernity and is fundamentally against separation. That is absolutely ideal for the state.

68

If a person is not offended when inappropriate things are said about God, about the Qur'an, but instead makes a loud noise thinking Mawlana is being insulted, then that would be idolizing him.

69

A Muslim would be falling astray if he accepts the abnormal statements made in the name of Mawlana. We do not know if Mawlana really made those statements or not but those statements are being published in the Masnavi known as his book: It is not possible to accept that.

70

The British deep state is trying to replace Islam with Rumism. Muslims should be very cautious against this plot.

71

The British deep state is the one who rules all the deep states of the world: They also rule the deep state of the US.

72

The British deep state is the real perpetrator in the collapse of the Ottomans. They set nations who've lived alongside each other for centuries against one another through instigation but the civilians of the UK are innocent. The UK government is disturbed by this deep state structure as well.

73

Darwinism is the greatest Godless movement in the history of the world and it originated in the UK. The UK is the country that protects and watches over the antichrist.

74

A country in which women are not modern can never be modern. A country in which women are not comfortable and free can never be free. No one would ever laugh in a country in which women do not laugh. If women are not happy in a country, no one else can ever be happy.

75

Islamic Union is the most important issue; terror will immediately stop with the Islamic Union. The violence Muslims are subjected to will instantly stop.

76

Unification of the Islamic world is known as the system of the Mahdi. The system of the Mahdi equals the unity of the Islamic world and we call the leader heading the Islamic world Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).

77

It seems that in 2016, things will escalate and there will be more violence and terror. However, people of love will start to get stronger, be more connected and start the age of love while voices of the war-mongers, terror and violence proponents, disappear.

78

Darwinism is the system of the antichrist. It is the Godless movement that is foretold to appear in the End Times. It made the whole world Godless and Bookless. We do not have the time to strive to determine the antichrist; the antichrist has already appeared. We need to concentrate on the solution. The solution is the system of the Mahdi. We need to take sides with the system of the Mahdi against the system of the antichrist.

79

The system of the antichrist, the system that impels people to Godlessness, is Darwinism. The antichrist appears as an ideology and makes the whole world Godless and Bookless, Darwinist and materialist. At schools all over the world, the Darwinist, materialist claims of the antichrist are being taught and people are impelled to Godlessness, Booklessness.

80

Hundreds of thousands of Muslims are being martyred. This would all come to an end if we had Islamic Union. It is the lack of an Islamic Union that causes all these murders. If Muslims do not advocate Islamic Union, they would unknowingly be partners to these deaths.

81

It is explicitly stated in the Surah An-Nur, verse 55 - and also in many other verses - that the Islamic world will unite. In the Qur'an, Muslims say, “O Lord, make us leader of those who are God-fearing." That means the Islamic world has a leader, a chief. There is no mention of a leaderless society in the Qur'an, all the societies in the Qur'an have a leader. The Islamic world will have a leader [as well]. They have nothing [they can use] to deny that.

82

Muslims will unite and they will have a leader heading them; we can give that person whatever name we like. We can call him the Caliph of Muslims, we can call him the Chief, we can call him the spiritual caliph. There is no need to be obsessed about the name.

83

If Darwinist-materialist education is removed, there wouldn't be an organization such as the Revolutionist People's Liberation Party/Front. There would not be a movement such as the Marxist Leninist Communist Party and an organization such as the PKK. That is because you would thus be annihilating their ideological structure fundamentally.

84

We need to avoid a system that harbors the enemies of mankind and protects loveless people. We need to strengthen the people of love.

85

If we become Europeans, be enlightened and loving, if we hold women in high esteem, if it is seen that women are free in our country, if we attach importance to the arts, sciences, aesthetics, we would attain the highest quality. Anything other than that would cause our ruin.

86

If you are hateful towards Israel, reject anything that is modern, live in filthy houses, if you are loveless and hateful towards Russians, Greeks, Iranians, Shias, Alawites, Wahhabis, if you keep dropping innuendos about everyone; then you would be falling in the clutches of satan. Don't you see the atrocious position you are in? These are all very wrong. Love is the only thing a Muslim knows, so you need to be full of love.

87

Our Prophet (saas) was the most modern person of his time, the Prophet Abraham (pbuh) was the most modern person of his time. Some people imagine that struggling against modernity is a necessity of Islam. Satan deceives them and shows it as a wrongful path. Modernity is a blessing. Heaven is the most modern place the human mind can perceive of. Muslims should target modernity.

88

Women should be free to wear what they like and live at ease all around the world. Any country that doesn't provide that freedom has been ruined. The countries in which women enjoy freedom become the most modern, most peaceful and most content countries of the world. Anything other than that is not possible. Let those wearing chadors wear it as they like, let those wearing veils wear it as they like, everyone should be free. Ladies should not be oppressed.

89

Any state lacking quality would collapse. Any state that oppresses women would be ruined. That is because half of all people are women. There will be no relief or comfort if women are oppressed there. God takes revenge.

90

Drinking wine, rakı and whisky, being poisoned and wasted is not having fun. There is such a false culture of alcohol and that is a grave mistake. Alcohol is by no manner of means entertaining. It is a very harmful and very disruptive substance.

91

They present Christmas as if it is a tragedy. We celebrated the birthday of our Prophet (saas) with pride and we do so every year. Why are they appalled with the birthday of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh)? He too is a prophet of Islam. He too is one of our Prophets.

92

Perform your prayers five times a day, count beads all night long but have high quality. If you want to cover your head, do so, but do it in style and with quality. Using ugly wraps and cloths is unacceptable. Women used to cover themselves up in the Ottoman times as well but they were like amazing works of art. This was how women appeared before people, like flowers. That is nothing that would prevent being religious.

93

God says, “I am the Eternal Power Who deserves to be loved. I am the One Who creates all love and all those you love. Their images belong to Me as well. So do not ascribe partners to Me and love Me." And that is what is right.

94

Some people imagine that having fun would draw the Wrath of God. Actually not being loved, being forgotten, ungratefulness and a lack of love draw the Wrath of God.

95

It would be very strange for a Muslim not to know anything about the Torah and the Gospels. God refers to the Torah and the Gospels in the Qur'an. It is not acceptable if you refer to them as if you are talking about a myth. They are living, current Books. You simply do not practice those corrupted passages.

96

Love is in the forefront in Christianity. Muslims should read the Gospels. Not the parts that are corrupted but they should read those passages that are compatible with the Qur'an. Love is depicted in Gospels. There are also very beautiful passages in the Torah depicting love very nicely.

97

Societies attain happiness when women are happy. For women to be happy, they should be free and well-protected. Both the state and people should be protective of them, everyone should protect and watch over women and they should be treasured everywhere they go so that they could be happy and vivacious.

98

We need to be the most modern country in Europe. Ankara should be even better than Paris. Istanbul should be far more high quality than London. It should have incomparable quality. There should be decent, kind, companionable people of peace everywhere. Everyone, people from all walks of life, people from every political party should feel love for one another in coffeehouses and streets.

99

Had some bigots been given free reign, neither listening to music, nor sculptures, nor paintings, or freedom for ladies putting on make-up and going out would be left. These people are quite bloodthirsty. That is why Turkey should swiftly go towards a modern, religious line.

100

Israel is an intelligent, wise state in the region. It is an anti-communist state that sides with God. Turkey should be very good friends with Israel in any case.

101

The only weapon we have is our insistence on love that stems from faith and that is all. We need to be devoutly religious but also full of love. We need to be avoid being vindictive, we need to try to make peace between everyone and strive for everyone's well-being.

102

A mentality that oppresses women would never develop and prosper. God would open the path of a country in which women enjoy freedom. It would be the end of a country if women are oppressed in that country.

103

For all the people across Europe, for people all around the world to be friends with us, before all else, for God to love us we need to become an amazing teacher of love. That is to say, we need to show an unprecedented personality. The world should watch us in awe. And we should be very, very modern.

104

A country in which women lack quality, could never attain quality and success. Such a country can never attain quality, can never be modern and European. If women in a country are not enlightened, free, happy and well-groomed, if they are not free in their joy, in their laughter, in sports, in their eating, etc., such a country can never be an enlightened country. Such a country would be dark and every country that becomes overcast would definitely be ruined. May God forbid.

105

Explaining life through random coincidences is the most illogical explanation. How could coincidences bring about pomegranates, oranges, lemons, olives and tangerines? How could Einstein, Newton come into being through coincidences? How could coincidences bring about lions, tigers, bees all of which are perfect beings?

106

The most important part in the struggle against terror organizations is to demoralize them. Humiliation is a way but proving the falsity of their ideology would be the most influential way. Explaining the falsity of their ideology, of their philosophy is the most influential method. You would thus dispirit and demoralize them completely, I mean both their muscle power and their mental power would thus be lost and they would be incapacitated.

107

Animosity against Israel is presented as if it is a merit, a sign of piety or superiority. Actually animosity against the People of the Book is atrocious. We love Jews, we love Christians. We are compassionate towards atheists as well.

108

The system of the Mahdi is not a claim but a demonstration. Islam prevails in the world and an individual takes the lead of the Islamic world. We can then think that he is the Mahdi (pbuh), God knows the truth and that is all (we can do). We cannot enunciate it either, we can only say, "God knows the truth, he might be the one."

109

When they talk about religion they assume that it is all about memorizing the verses, knowing the Qur'an by heart and reciting the verses with tajwid, being careful about idgham (merging). Actually the essence and the wisdom in the Qur'an is what is important. I mean putting the meaning in the Qur'an into practice is important, not reciting the Qur'an by being careful with idgham and qalqalah (adding a slight bounce or reduced vowel sound). Arabs can do that effortlessly in the best manner, but there are also a lot of them who do not put those verses into life, into practice.

110

Our Prophet (saas) did not call people to himself, but to the Qur'an. None of the prophets called people to themselves but rather, to the Books of God. For instance, the Prophet Moses (pbuh) called to the Torah, the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) called to the Gospel. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will be calling people to the Qur'an as well.

111

Wisdom is a beauty God likes. Some people talk plenty but lack wisdom. Wisdom has nothing to do with a lot of knowledge and a lot of verbalism. One might be a walking library but lack that profundity and fail to perceive the wisdom behind that knowledge. Such people only concentrate on the arrogance and snobbery knowledge could bring them. Actually knowledge can only be used for wisdom.

112

Neither the Last Day nor death would have any aspect that would make Muslims uneasy. It would offend God if Muslims think that they would be persecuted or suffer somehow. That is because God says, "Trust Me, if you are good no harm would ever touch you." Muslims should always think good and well about God.

113

The whole issue is in submitting to God wholeheartedly and in loving God. Once you attain that, you would progress steadily on the right path. You might want to go faster, but God would not let you speed up. The system of the Mahdi is a system that progresses slowly. The followers of the Mahdi blossom out slowly as well. No matter how much they want it, no matter what they do, God makes them fill in that preordained time.

114

The core of the system of the Mahdi is wisdom and sincerity. Literary or fancy talks would be like singing a song and would have no true impact on people.

115

Some people assume that Islam can only prevail with huge expenses, great activities, organized movements, by doing things covertly, etc. Look at the Qur'an and you'll see that Islamic values have always prevailed metaphysically. The whole issue is in attaining sincerity.

116

One only serves the system of the Mahdi and cannot claim to be the Mahdi. Look carefully into the course of history and you will see that they all ended up defeated. But God has always opened the way for all those who stepped forth claiming to be in the service of the system of the Mahdi and made them all elated.

117

All of the artificial movements regarding the system of the Mahdi are doomed to collapse. That is because it means mocking the system of the Mahdi. God is the One Who gives one the lead. All the false Mahdi candidates end up defeated.

118

Having fun, Islam, the Qur'an, eating and drinking and everything else; life is a whole with all its entirety. There is no life far-remote from Islam. I mean there is no such thing to call "this part is Islamic and this part is non-Islamic." Islam is in every breath we take; while having fun, while laughing, sleeping, lying and waking up; Islam is in everything and everywhere one can think of. Any moment of life one claims to be outside of Islam is full of unawareness and means devastation.

119

If we become a very modern country, a very enlightened country, if we attain the highest levels in the rights of women, if we become outstanding in arts, science, aesthetics and quality, we would become the strongest country in the world. Otherwise we would be a country that inevitably remains in the chain of Middle Eastern countries. Everyone would walk all over us and we would be devastated, may God forbid.

120

Weakness of faith renders one nonchalant. Such a person would not have the enthusiasm for spreading Islam, they would not have the strength to fear God. They only go after their own interests and their own problems. That is a grave problem.

121

When people are weak in faith, they do not concern themselves with the fact that Muslims are being killed and persecuted in Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria, Libya; they do not think about the Darwinist education being given to our youth. They merely act on their instincts. They only look for where to have fun, how to enjoy themselves. They run after adventures. This nonchalance is the gravest disaster caused by the weakness in faith.

122

The deep state of the UK brought Darwinism to drag the Ottomans down into ruin and they have thus dealt an incomprehensible blow. They have dragged the whole world into a disaster, ripped apart and ruined the world. Both the First and the Second World Wars broke out because of it. Darwinism lies behind both of those wars. That is because both the Marxist way of thinking and the fascist way of thinking are philosophies stemming from Darwinism.

123

Darwinism is the reason why the PKK has progressed. It is again Darwinism that lies beneath the system that martyrs our soldiers and police officers. This is the origin of all these sicknesses.

124

In Darwinist-materialist education, the existence of God is denied, all the prophets are denied: Heaven, Hell, creation is denied. May God forbid, the Power of God is considered as non-existent and this is all done in the name of science. Our government should not be instrumental in this and should put an end to this Darwinist-materialist education.

125

There is no such thing as the torment of the grave. You pass to a different dimension when you die. At the moment you die, you are made to feel that you are Muslim and you would instantly understand. From that peaceful feeling you feel, from your comfort you instantly get it and God would certainly never persecute His servants. There is no such thing. May God forbid, God is far beyond such an unjust, cruel understanding. He is Infinite Wisdom and Endlessly Compassionate.

126

Let me give you an important secret. You should not forget this secret throughout your life; God would never put a sincere Muslim with an open conscience in to Hell and no such person would ever be tormented. If one gives a sincere, determined struggle on the Path of God, even if he lives in a hellish environment in this world, God would make him live like he is in Heaven. That is an amazing demonstration of the power of God.

127

Turkey will eventually become one of the most modern countries of the world. There will be no bigotry, there will be women in revealing clothes and also those covering themselves with chadors, our cities will be far more beautiful than Paris and London; Diyarbakır, Siirt and everywhere else will be amazingly beautiful. We have an astounding determination, strength, means and intellect. We will do all of these things.

128

We have given hundreds of thousands of martyrs and we would give even more if necessary. But we will not let anyone talk ill about God, the Qur'an, our homeland, our people and our flag, insha'Allah.

129

There are bigots all around us; they should not be indulged. These people are the main representatives of the force that would drag the Turkish nation into ruin and they are not even aware of it. If they were left to their own devices they would bring devastation both onto themselves and to the Turkish nation. I am not referring to inoffensive bigots, but to those who actively advocate the bigoted mentality. The policy of the deep state of the UK is founded upon investing in those people.

130

The plot they devised against Turkey, against the Turks, can only be dashed by making Turkey the most modern, highest quality state that attaches utmost importance to the rights of women, arts and science. Otherwise it seems that the plot they devised works like clockwork; Turkey is being dragged into the darkness of bigotry.

131

In bigotry, misogyny steps in, animosity against women develops and the arts, science and aesthetics die out. The traditionalist Orthodox system prevails everywhere. After that the state and the nation collapses. This is the covert policy implemented by the deep state of the UK. We can overcome this policy with arts, science, aesthetics and by having an even higher quality than the Europeans.

132

Bigotry develops mainly as a result of a policy implemented by the deep state of the UK. Turning people into bigots is enough to ruin a country; afterwards, that state would fall into pieces on its own.

133

Wireless technology, mobile phones, image transfer technology and the internet are all for the system of the Mahdi. Almighty God did not create it for people to merely have fun but for Islam to prevail throughout the world with ease.

134

Our brothers in the Southeast are suffering many ordeals and by the leave of God, they are attaining many merits because of that, insha'Allah. They should be a bit patient. Our state should help them profusely especially with food and clothing. Big factories, sweets factories, sugar factories, oil factories should allocate a contingent for the Southeast. That would be a great deed.

135

In bigotry, homes lack quality, their cars lack quality, their streets lack quality. An incomprehensible degeneracy pervades around them. The quality of the clothes goes bad, the quality of paintings, food and everything goes bad and becomes blunt. Bigotry advocates this bluntness, this crassness and this lack of quality and that is a grave danger. We need to be very cautious against that.

136

There is no scale or limit to bigotry, it is like an avalanche; it starts small and then gets bigger, it advances and swallows people, it crushes people. That is what happened in Egypt, in Syria, in Libya. People who have a desire to kill others rise up. People who want to die and to kill rise up. In that respect it is highly dangerous.

137

We have a responsibility to behave sincerely. God creates Heaven even in Hell for those who are sincere. He gives blessings to sincere Muslims from where they least expect it. All those are hidden miracles of the Qur'an. People of faith understand this and see the covert signs of God, but heedless people would not see them.

138

God gives abundance and relief onto those who strive on His Path and casts troubles and problems on those with ill-will, as you can see. God opens the way for those striving on the good path. That is a miracle. God eases the way for those who want to advance on His path.

139

When one reads the Qur'an, wisdom settles in him and he becomes completely reasonable and rational. The Qur'an is the book of reason. It is a light that causes wisdom to settle in the brain. Normally wisdom is not formed in one's brain, only intelligence. When the human brain comes into contact with the Qur'an, wisdom and reason settles in. Otherwise, wisdom cannot possibly be attained, only intelligence can.

140

Our Prophet's (saas) good conscience was very much at ease. He was very serene and peaceful. He didn't have the least of that uneasiness of a man who creates a religion. He was very much innocent, very decent and very calm. He waited for revelation with patience. When the revelations came, the hafiz attending memorized them instantly. He also memorized the verses and had no interference on the revelations other than that.

141

Our Prophet (saas) had amazing honesty and decency. That superior morality continued on him throughout his life. It is one of the signs of his Prophethood. Everything about him is modest and reasonable; everything about him is balanced. He had an amazing patience in the face of things that many others couldn't tolerate. He had an astounding power of forgiveness. He had an amazing kindness and decency.

142

Artists should not be left in the hands of the ignorant, in the hands of bigots. That is because bigots would want to ruin and corrupt everything. They become the accomplices of satan and ruin everything that is beautiful.

143

Lying is not an ordinary act. It is atrocious, it darkens one's face, takes away his mind and sanity, it makes one ugly.

144

Lying is a form of insanity and it is quite widespread among the ignorant, especially among crass people, with the aim of entertaining others and drawing attention to themselves. Because it is a form of insanity and it humiliates people, no one should ever come near it. It is vileness to lie to draw attention or to act as a know-it-all and a show off.

145

It is very important that Turkey has a European appearance. See that even the most conventionalist, most Orthodox ones want to go to Europe and like Europe. That means theirs is a way of life that is more suitable to human nature. There has to be arts, there have to be beautiful roads, beautiful buildings, beautiful people. Life should be beautiful. That is how human nature is. If what they have been saying was true, they would have gone to the Middle East, to Egypt, to Pakistan, to India or Iran. But they don't. Furthermore some of them hate it there, they don't want it in any shape or form.

146

If the bigoted appearance in Turkey increases, it would turn Turkey into a Middle Eastern country and crush her tragically. They would do exactly what they have done to Syria and Iraq. But if Turkey attains a European appearance, she would find her value and be appreciated by the whole world.

147

God has given very nice secrets that would keep one's mind sane. Before all else, one's commitment to God would keep away all immorality, all abnormality. Putting one's trust in God would take away the torment one does to himself. When he becomes patient, he would become friends with everyone around. When one is loyal, he would attain a personality everyone would love. When one criticizes himself, he keeps his sanity intact. When one is criticized by others, he becomes a rational, stable and loveable person.

148

Without criticism, the lower-self makes one insane, it makes one crazy. A Muslim should criticize himself and have himself criticized by others. When one does that, he would turn into a very well-balanced, reasonable, normal person. If he has mental instability, that goes away. That insanity dissolves, that aggression goes away. His inconsistencies, his tormenting himself goes away.

149

If one is disturbed by the advice he is given, that is an evil disturbance. Advice has a poisonous effect on unbelievers. They don't even want to listen to the advice they are given.

150

Muslims should feel content when they are criticized, they should not feel sick; all those feelings are from the satan. Just like satan is disturbed by the prayers Muslim perform, just like it is disturbed by the remembrance of God, it is disturbed by the advice given as well.

151

I congratulate all Shias because of their love towards the system of the Mahdi, because of their fastidiousness in preserving accounts about Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). The related hadiths completely conform to the incidents in the End Times. Hadiths related by Hazrat Ali (ra), hadiths that are miraculous and that have been realized openly, all come from Shias. You cannot find those accounts in the Ahl al-Sunnah sources.

152

God loves those who love Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). God makes those who hold on to the system of the Mahdi happy. There is a blessing in the system of the Mahdi.

153

One would not know himself otherwise; in that respect criticism is a perfect blessing. However satan has turned it into a spiral of disaster and pain. Criticism has a very devastating impact on some people. They are devastated and almost lose their human feelings. Look at the pain satan inflicts. Look at how satan manipulates something that is actually in one's favor, how it shows such a beautiful blessing.

154

Being criticized by another is like looking into the highest quality mirror. How nice it is. You can preen yourself, tidy yourself. Finding someone to criticize you is as valuable as gold, it is a great blessing. But criticisms should be honest and sincere, and should not be done to disturb and offend. Criticisms should be justified.

155

Other countries should help Jordan. The number of refugees in Jordan has reached about one and a half million. They should be given money, supported with financial means, food and clothing. Wealthy Arabic countries are constantly funneling money to weapons. Instead of spending money on weapons, spend it on those wretched people in need so that they can find relief.

156

The reason why they are leery of my explanations about the system of the Mahdi to this extent is because I am talking about it without any superstitions and I convince them that it is true. Or else, if I were to talk about it with superstitions, they would have loved it. That would be no problem for them and no one would be angry. No one would ever object to it.

157

The first condition of life is love. Like water, like air. You die when you cannot let air in, you die without love, the world dies, the universe dies. It is not possible to live without love. There is no bargaining in love. There is only self-sacrifice and altruism. You do not stoop to little things.

158

Love brings about mercy and compassion. Then you can't kill anyone, you can't hang anyone or chop up anyone. You simply solve everything with rationality and science. You solve everything with love and persuasion.

159

Love is the most important social and political foundation for the whole world. Love is the source of healing. Without that, the whole system is disrupted, both politics, trade and law decline and everything falls down. A cruel spirit prevails everywhere.

160

They consider love as luxurious, as if it is something that would be nice if attained. But that is not the case; without love, wars break out; terror, anarchy and violence breaks out. No one is safe in a loveless environment.

161

Turkey should never give credit to bigotry. Turkey should be a country in which modern people reside, like Norway, like The Netherlands, like Denmark. All the cities should be like Paris and London. There should be music, there should be paintings, statues, beauties. All the cities should be like art galleries. There should be ladies wearing revealing clothes and also ladies covering their heads. There should be an environment in which the utmost freedom of speech and beauty is encouraged and enjoyed.

162

Egocentric people should try it and they will see. They will become reasonable, balanced people whereas they were half-insane before. Everyone would see, people around them would see it. The only condition being self-criticism.

163

An egocentric person couldn't even endure or tolerate a justified criticism. He becomes purple, flushed of face, he starts to have a stomachache, high blood pressure and he becomes insane. That is because criticism offends his ego, because his whole body becomes his ego, that creates an immense allergy in his body. But when he criticizes himself, his ego would be shuttered and would stop assaulting his body. His body would be soothed and calmed. He would regain his mental balance. After that he will be able to think and talk rationally and reasonably.

164

Almighty God says, "Truly, man is unbridled, seeing himself as self-sufficient." What does seeing himself as self-sufficient mean? He sees himself as perfect. For instance, if you criticize him somehow, he instantly lashes out because he caught that disease.

165

The best attitude that can be adopted against egocentricity and haughtiness is to be submissive towards God, to put trust in God, to be patient and humble and to avoid being egocentric. The shortest remedy to that in the Qur'an is self-criticism. One should criticize himself both while he is alone and while he is in the company of others.

166

If a person is very egocentric, if he likes himself a lot, if he has an extreme air of haughtiness, all his body becomes egocentric. The whole body becomes his ego. His whole body becomes sick. I mean he becomes insane. That is what happened to Pharaoh, to Nimrod. They lost their sanity. When that is the case, satan settles in their body. They become unable to act rationally and in a balanced manner. They lose the ability to be reasonable.

167

A honest, loving, affectionate gaze is nourishment for a Muslim. This beauty is also mentioned in Heaven. There is a reference to ladies whose eyes are turned only towards their spouses, ladies looking at their spouses with passionate eyes. Their gazes to their spouses is the first priority, God drew attention to in the Qur'an.

168

Islam means love, compassion, peace, quality, beauty, democracy, deep thinking, arts and science. It is all kinds of beauty. But there is no such understanding in bigotry. There is only cruelty in bigotry. They turn the world into a living hell for yourself and then try to turn it into a living hell for others as well.

169

The traditional orthodox system is a disastrous and awful system and it causes hatred for Muslims all over the world. That hatred is increasing gradually and because of those traditional Orthodox people who call themselves Muslims, the extreme right is getting stronger in Europe. They are harming themselves and Islam in the process and they're also hurting all inoffensive people.

170

The state should not leave the youth to their own devices. The PKK doesn't do leave them to their own devices: They educate and raise consciousness among them in their own ways. They educate them with a Marxist consciousness, a communist way of thinking, with a terrorist, Stalinist mindset. There is no response against that in the curriculum of the state. When that's the case they are making headway unilaterally.

171

There should be a strong cultural struggle against terror and a strong struggle to equip our youth with a national conscience. Before all else there should be courses on national consciousness, courses three times a week on national consciousness. Courses on topics such as what is communism, what is Marxism, how can a struggle be given, what is terrorism? What are the wrongful aspects of Darwinism and materialism? These should be taught.

172

An incomprehensible courage, an incomprehensible boldness should be shown against terror and a comeuppance that our enemies would never expect should be given. You should make it felt that you are insane about that. If you give a calm and languid struggle, they would continue to martyr our soldiers and police officers. But once you start pushing back firmly, they start begging.

173

It is not acceptable to follow a calm, moderate policy against the PKK. A determined policy within the mainframe of the law should be followed; that is because martyrs are saintly. If we are giving martyrs every single day, that is defiance against us.

174

Look at the attention they pay to this terror and violence, look at the effort they are showing. Look at the effort they make for bloodshed. Had they given the same effort to love, this world would turn into a Heaven on earth very shortly. But of course, God should be loved. God would not turn this world into a Heaven without the love He demands. Loving God, fearing God is essential.

175

Everything will be beautiful. King Messiah - Moschiah, meaning “Shiloh” foretold in the Torah some 3,500 years ago, will actually be instrumental in the salvation of the world. We understand that we come to his time from all the portents, from the heavenly and earthly portents. The blood that is being shed is one of the portents of the appearance of Moschiah.

176

Armageddon is one of the latest, greatest portents of the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). We might watch a slowed down Armageddon, or an expedited one. But right now Armageddon is going on in the related region anyway.

177

Once the Islamic world has a leader, terror and anarchy will stop on that day and hour. Wars will stop, disasters will stop, separation will stop, disintegration will stop. Everything will be solved fundamentally.

178

Islam is a system that stops massacres; it is a system that brings love. If there is a massacre going on somewhere that is because Islam is not being practiced there, because there is no Islamic Union. Would this terror, this anarchy, be possible if Muslims had a leader? No.

179

Hypocrites have the ferociousness of animals. For instance their getting angry, their lack of control, their lack of wisdom is insane and even beyond that of animals. They are ferocious. God says that "...they are like cattle, even further astray".

180

Muslims should not support hypocrites and sick people. They should certainly support sincere people. They should do so even if doesn't serve their own interests.

181

The morality demonstrated in the Qur'an is the most superior, the most profound morality. The most beautiful form of life in which a deepest wisdom would come about.

182

Unbelievers and hypocrites demonstrate herding behavior, just like the animals. They act jointly. Just like reindeers, bison herds, unbelievers behave in herds as well. When they see a danger coming, they attack like a bison herd. Unbelievers behave in herds like that as well.

183

Muslims should be very perceptive, very foresighted and very wise, they should be vigilant; apathy would do them no good. Water sleeps but the hypocrites never rest. That disease might develop any moment. Muslims might explain to them the truth in all their honesty but they ridicule them inside and don't even listen to them.

184

Sometimes the acts of Muslim might look very much like the acts of a hypocrite but that doesn't make him a hypocrite, it only means that he caught a disease. When you save him from that disease, he would go on as a Muslim. But when you apply the same treatment to the hypocrite - there is a grave danger here - the hypocrite might appear as if he is saved as well, but he continues his ways underhandedly.

185

Hypocrites not only think nothing of the situation of the Muslims in the world but also are pleased with the fact that they do not shoulder those difficulties and responsibilities. They imagine themselves as very wise. They think that they are prudent and keep away from Muslims, keep away from incidents. They say, "I am really wise, I acted very sagaciously" unaware of the troubles that they've dragged themselves into and of the blessings bestowed upon Muslims. By doing so they proceed forward on their path in to the depths of Hell and in the meantime Muslims' reward, the Heaven they will be given, will shine even more.

186

Hypocrites- in their own minds- try to deceive the Prophet (saas) with the Qur'an. They say, "Doesn't God tell us to protect our families? And God shows us trade as a lawful path and that is what I am doing." Alright, but you need to look for the act that would please God the most, you need to be honest and sincere. There are Muslim women, inoffensive Muslims, being martyred and here you are talking about your trade. Do not act in infamy, come to your senses and stop acting foolishly. People are being killed there, Muslims are being martyred; is your trade more important than that? Are you that foolish?

187

Hypocrites ask the Prophet to excuse them, saying, ´Our houses are exposed,´ when they were not exposed. What do they mean by saying that their houses are exposed? They mean to say, "I have a family at home, I need to take care of them, of their education. I need to bring food to my spouse at home, I need to take care of her. My store is exposed as well. My trade is mired down, I need to take care of that." Well my brother, alright, but they are killing, martyring Muslims all over. Is your store more important or their being martyred?

188

Many people are not at all concerned with the command of Islam, they only are concerned with their own lives. They only want to get married, have children, set up a business but also want use Muslims, use being a Muslim, in the meantime. They mainly focus on their own ambitions; Islam is a background they can make use of for them, to have a circle, to make trade and to get married.

189

If you run after the transient world, God would make it constantly run away from you and the world would then become a trouble for you. However, the world would become beautiful with self-sacrificing people. For instance, our Prophet (saas) was very altruistic and selfless. His companions were very altruistic and selfless. None of them were self-seeking. Societies with self-seeking people collapse.

190

Many people are after their own pleasure and their own joy and use Islam to that end. They keep busy with their trade, looking for ways to eat, drink and travel, to get married and get on with their lives. This is the mindset of a great portion of the Islamic world. That is why God ruins the Islamic world. God wants them to turn towards Him yet they do not. God says, "You are after the transient blessings of this world but the Hereafter is the abode that is auspicious and beautiful, if you only knew."

191

Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will create an enlightened world and bring modernity to the Islamic world. An environment in which women will enjoy freedom, in which the youth will be free, in which music, paintings, statutes and all other forms of art will be enjoyed in the utmost beauty will be possible with Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).

192

Turkey should be like a European country, like Norway, like Denmark, like The Netherlands. There should be an environment in which women are free and arts, science and aesthetics are prevalent to the utmost. Then Europe and the US would not want a PKK state in the region and Turkey would be enough for them.

193

Armageddon started with the Iraq War and is progressing slowly. More than one and a half million people have been martyred in Iraq, 400,000 in Syria and hundreds of thousands in Afghanistan. These are all the footfalls of Armageddon and it is going on extensively right now as well.

194

God protects and nurtures Muslims. Sometimes Almighty God takes them to His Sight. Just like He took the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) to His Sight, just like He took the Prophet John (pbuh) and the Prophet Zechariah (pbuh) to His Sight as martyrs, but that would all be for the good of Muslims in any case.

195

No one is born a PKK militant but becomes one later on, becomes one with the education they are giving him. If you stop that Darwinist-materialist education, if you teach them the atrocities of Stalinism and communism, you win them over. It is as easy as that. Instead of killing the man, you should kill the idea, the evil in his mind. If you kill the satan inside his brain, you win over the man.

196

An intellectual struggle should be carried out against both the PKK and ISIS. ISIS is recruiting new militants by training them day in and day out. No one is born an ISIS militant, they become one later on. How does it happen? It happens with education. So you educate them with the truth and make them find the right path.

197

The fruit plant recognizes atoms; it recognizes the iron atom. For instance, when a certain milligram of it is completed, when it reaches the amount of iron it should contain, it says "that is enough." When it takes in the necessary amount of magnesium, it doesn't take any more. When it takes in the necessary amount of calcium, when it reaches that ratio particular to that fruit, it doesn't take in any more.

198

God has created and adorned fruits so beautifully. Many people do not appreciate them. However, their intelligence and expertise is millions of times more than man. Man can never be able to give a grape that shape, that taste, nor will man ever be able to establish that intricate balance of calcium, magnesium and zinc in it.

199

Let us become the most modern country of the world. Let us have a really modern state structure. Let us put ladies first. Let us become the most advanced country in music, in arts and aesthetics. A bigoted, conservative appearance does not suit us. That is the reason why they want to annihilate Turkey, that is the reason why they are opening their doors to the PKK.

200

The PKK has caused so much pain to Muslims for about 40 years. They established a dominance in a considerably big region within the borders of Turkey. They have surrounded our border externally in the Southeast. Ignoring all these and pitting Turkish soldiers against ignorant and uninformed Muslims would be a grave mistake.

201

As Turkey, we should not get involved in a system that would drag us into a conflict with Muslims, by no means. It is religiously unlawful to shed Muslim blood; it would bring inauspiciousness and would be a grave disaster. While there is the dissension of the PKK, sending our soldiers out against Muslims would be a grave mistake.

202

Islamic Union is not something that could be attained by implementing a plan or a project. While incidents take place in Syria, in Iraq, God also gives us the signs with the comets foretold in the hadiths. These are not things people can do. We cannot place a two-tailed comet to the sky. These incidents take place and progress completely as they are ordained in destiny.

203

The system of the Mahdi is not something people should be afraid of. The system of the Mahdi is an age and a system where the beauties of love, joy and life will be experienced so much so that our Prophet (pbuh) says that those in the grave will envy this life and those who are alive will want to live a very long life.

204

The antichrist is the enemy of everything that is beautiful. The antichrist has it's hooks into bigotry, so bigots also become the enemies of everything that is beautiful.

205

The antichrist is the enemy of beauty, the enemy of cities, of furniture, animals and plants. The antichrist is the enemy of man first and foremost, but even before that, it is the enemy of God. It destroys everything God created, everything it sees that is beautiful. It destroys living beings, it destroys goods, it destroys animals and plants.

206

Bigots are paralyzed when they see beauty. Their lives are all filthy. Their wives are awful; their food is awful; their homes, their speech, their mouths, their shoes are awful, everything they have is filthy. Because they are not used to high quality, beautiful people, they go into a shock when they see them and they cannot get over it.

207

There is immense opposition against religion in newspapers, on the radio, in the streets, among families, in many different spheres. A Muslim preserving his faith despite all that would be attaining a lot of good deeds.

208

The talk of evil people, of whisperers that instill apprehensions are all very favorable in respect of the trials Muslims are subjected to. They are all specifically created by God.

209

The atrocious words, attacks, preparations of traps, villainy and all sorts of nastiness of evil people are actually blessings organized and created by God as special opportunities that would increase the good deeds one attains.

210

The existence of atheists, all their writings, their speeches mocking religion are there to increase the good deeds Muslims attain. As one continues in his faith despite all these, that makes him more valuable.

211

Time in Heaven will be endless for Muslims. That is because they are carrying God's Soul. God's Soul never dies; just like there is no death for God, there is no death for His Soul either. God says that He breathed His Soul into man.

212

According to the hadiths, the disasters will become so violent that people will be preoccupied with their own troubles. Everyone would be worn down thinking about their personal interests. Incidents will escalate immeasurably. The appearance of Imam Mahdi (pbuh) is imperative for the salvation of Muslims: There is no other way.

213

Muslims are killing Muslims: All this would end if Muslims have a leader. With the Islamic Union, all Muslims will be saved. They will be saved on that day and hour. A spiritual leader, a leader elected with a loving bond would stop all the terror and all the groups of anarchy. That will spread a spirit that takes love and brotherhood as its basis to the whole Islamic world and everyone will see that they are protective friends of one another.

214

It is religiously unlawful to resist the Islamic Union. It is a religious obligation for Muslims to select a leader. Every delay causes the sin that falls upon one to increase in folds. Muslims become responsible for every person killed, for every inoffensive Muslim suffering. That is because they persistently reject the Islamic Union, they persistently assume an attitude against the system of the Mahdi. As they assume such an attitude against the system of the Mahdi, the murders, the deaths, are all increasing in folds.

215

What one would be doing in his lifetime is already defined in his destiny. What will happen is already preordained in destiny but he worries nevertheless, yet God has created everything in the best way possible. What is the sense of this worry? I mean there is no logic behind it and there is no rational explanation for that worry. That is because everything has already happened anyway. You are worrying in vain. Almighty God has created the best in everything.

216

Information does not flow to the brain out of the blue. The brain should be disciplined; it should be educated. It is not possible to do by sitting back, one needs to work for it. Thinking is an act of worship, just like prayers.

217

The reason why that little child washed ashore is because Muslims didn't select a leader, because they did not decide to unite. But the most important point in the decision to unite is to elect a leader. Everyone, all the heads of states keep saying, "Let us unite," without selecting a leader. Select your leader and then see if everyone unites or not? If you say, "This is our leader" that means unity is accomplished.

218

The most obvious reflection of the lack of knowledge in Muslims is their not accepting unity and their not electing a leader to lead them. If they unite, everything will be solved on the spot. Neither terror, nor anarchy, no fighting, no Muslim massacres would ever happen. These incomprehensible massacres and pains are taking place every single day because of their inability to elect a leader.

219

God tells us to put our trust in Him and to submit to Him. Trust in God would only be attained with concentration, with faith and determination; it doesn't happen out of the blue. It's not like one can say, "I am a Muslim so I should be given that trust in God." One needs to strive and work for it; only then God gives that feeling to him.

220

God tells us to think deeply. That is because when one thinks deeply, Almighty God bestows special knowledge. I mean, thinking deeply is an act of worship. When one intends to think deeply, God gives that person a special knowledge of deepening and that person lives in the comfort of that. But knowledge does not come without thinking, on its own. Knowledge does not come without showing an effort.

221

Possessing a deterrent power is essential in the struggle against terror. Every police officer should be given automatic weapons against the PKK. And they should carry at least 200 or 300 bullets and at least three or four grenades; that would be incredibly deterrent. The PKK wanders around with bazookas, but our police have only simple guns, how is that acceptable? Police should be armed like an armory.

222

The region would accept the notion of Turkish Islamic Union. But they would never accept the hegemonic mindset of the US. There will be no more Ottomans, no more Seljuk Empire yet again. There will be no return to the Oğuzhan period, to the Sultan Alparslan period. What will happen? We will head towards the future. What is the future? It is the system of the Mahdi.

223

I have said that great incidents will take place. We will strive hard to prevent things, but things will happen nevertheless. They thought that we were telling stories when we talked about the End Times but the End Times are at our door now. That means what I've said is the truth. They cannot say that they haven't seen, they haven't heard, they didn't understand; even the one who doesn't see at all has started to see and the one who doesn't hear at all has started to hear. Until 2019, there will be no eye that is not opened, no eye that doesn't see.

224

God led the deep state in the Ottoman Empire. God is the One leading the deep states in Russia and the US. The deep states cannot move even one millimeter beyond what God has ordained. Just like the electrons revolving around an orbit at a certain speed and are never allowed to step out of that orbit, the deep states are not able to step out of the orbit ordained for them as well. They are not able to take a step or make a speech on their own accord.

225

It is the greatest insult to call a Kurdish citizen a PKK militant. Kurdish people are my bosom friends, my gist, my blood, my brothers. The PKK, on the other hand, is the army of the inglorious that gathers together all those ignominious, foul ones in the world. I would not let anyone insult the Kurdish people.

226

By saying "love is happiness", "love is the remedy" we are smashing the brain of Satan. Love is the word that disturbs Satan the most, the word that it hates the most.

227

Animosity against a certain country, a certain race, a certain religion is not acceptable. A moral understanding, a spirit that loves and respects and looks out for each and every one of them should prevail everywhere.

228

The countries with presidential systems were already disunited before they accepted the presidential system and that system united them. But there is no example of a country that formerly had a unitary structure and then switched to a presidential system only to then become disunited.

229

They say that one cannot see without the eye, don't they? Alright; then what is it that sees the electric signals inside the brain as three dimensional and colored images? What is it then? It doesn't have an eye, it doesn't have nerves, etc. It only looks into those electric signals and sees three dimensional images.

230

The moment trouble comes onto someone is very valuable. That is a beautiful moment of trial. Muslims should not let that opportunity pass by and they should say, "O my Lord, I come from You and I will return to You. I am Yours, You are the One Who creates everything. The trouble that came on to me is ready in Your Sight before it ever happened to me. I am ready for every type of trial You will give me. I am truly in need of any good You have in store for me. Bestow upon me the honor of living through this trial in beauty." Those around him should also be congratulating him for that trial. It is not right to dither.

231

Seventy veils conceals Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), he is very difficult to see. He is concealed in such a way that even Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will not be able to see himself. That is how Almighty God conceals him. The Torah commentator Rabbis say, “His mother, his father, his family would not be able to recognize Moschiach Mahdi." He is that much concealed.

232

The world turned against Israel. Israel should become religious and turn to God. That is a divine warning from God. That is also mentioned in the Torah; God tells them that He would spread fear in their hearts, make them humiliated and oppressed wherever they go in the world and that they would be subjected to violence if they do not return to the origin of the Torah. The salvation of Judaism is in piety.

233

God loves colorfulness and liveliness. Within that colorful world, there are illnesses, problems, incidents, conflicts, brawls, oppressions, distresses and hardships. God loves it when one passes through all these things and rises above them.

234

The government should protect and watch over the rights of women, freedom, democracy, music, arts and everything that is beautiful. The government should look out for quality and aesthetics and state that "these are the characteristics of the Turkish Nation."

235

Breaking the leg of Satan everywhere he steps foot is one of the characteristics of the Mahdi. Wiping out the footfalls of fascism, making the whole world taste freedom, joy, the festive spirit and joy of faith, creating an amazing level of social justice are all the characteristics of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).

236

Loyalty is for God. The cost of loyalty is very hard for a faithless person. It would get a person into trouble. It brings plenty and radiance to Muslims, it brings beauty. It is an immense beauty and bravery. Every single minute one shows patience would shatter his bones and cause a great suffering. Patience is shown only with faith. That is why people are obliged to the Qur'an.

237

One cannot have a beautiful morality simply by saying, 'Let me have good morality.' Good morality can only be attained by fearing God, by loving God. Otherwise one would not be generous. He would feel pain inside when he gives something to someone. Forgiving would make him enraged. Without faith, without the fear of God, forgiving becomes very unnerving.

238

The most reasonable, the most perfect arrangement that is needed for people to live happily in a community is defined in the Qur'an.

239

When the Qur'an is carefully studied, we see that all of the perfect rules that could make it possible to live in this world like it is Heaven are very thoroughly covered. That is to say, when the Qur'an is practiced completely, individuals lead a perfect life. They become very stable and societies lead a very perfect life as well.

240

With weakness of faith comes weakness in morality. That is because one learns good morality from the Qur'an. Without Islam, one would not try to be patient. He would say, 'Why should I be patient?' 'Why should I be generous? Why should I self-sacrificing?' And that would ruin a person in every aspect.

241

The most important thing for a Muslim is to have a strong faith. Weakness in faith ruins people. Weakness of faith is the biggest problem in the world. At least 70% of the Qur'an refers to weakness of faith and to the importance of the facts leading to faith.

242

Have a look at some people around you, at those who do not let anyone say a single word about themselves. They come up with an explanation to every single thing they are told. They do not even accept something that should certainly be criticized about. That kind of attitude would create heavy damage and cause a very significant problem in one's psyche. Look around you and you will see; but those who criticize themselves are very lenient. Such people are very stable and very consistent. You can see that around you as well. That is a miracle of the Qur'an.

243

In order to be stable and reasonable one should certainly criticize himself. Even if it is once in a while, he should certainly criticize himself and one should do so when he is in the company of others. Only then one could become a stable, reasonable person. That is a miracle of the Qur'an. A solid, tangible miracle.

244

If one does not criticize himself and sees himself as sufficient and above criticism, he would become insane. A Muslim should certainly criticize himself and have others criticize him. This is necessary for one's sanity or else one's mental health would be disrupted; his judgment and reasoning would be impaired. His foresight and perception would be blocked. Have a look at those around you, you will see. Avoiding criticisms would cause instability and would prevent one to be reasonable.

245

Love is a great power because God has placed love in the nature of man. Satan is trying to make us step out of our nature. By doing so, Satan has bit off more than it can chew. We will crush Satan under our feet and love will prevail in the world.

246

Women are flower- like beings. What is the sense in causing them pain and suffering? Let them live beautifully in this world. Only then both Europe and the US would open their doors wide to Turkey and no longer support these villains of the PKK.

247

There is no ambition of ownership in the morality described in the Qur'an. Everything belongs to everyone; brotherhood comes to the forefront. Everyone shares everything they have with their brothers. They will share everything they have, everything they eat, they drink, they wear, everything they own. There will be no such thing as hoarding goods, acting ambitiously, etc. These are all things that they have come up with later on saying, "You are to give one fortieth of the gold you own," etc. There is no such thing. The Qur'an tells us to give whatever is surplus to our actual needs.

248

The solution to persecution is love, it is peace and rationalism, knowledge and science; the solution is the struggle against radicalism that would be given with the facts of the Qur'an. There might be some who feign ignorance right now, but in the very near future, they will all understand as the incidents that are taking place get even bigger. Write down what I have just said, you will see that things will happen exactly as said. Everything will happen exactly as said.

249

Presidential systems all around the world are systems that are open to federalism, systems that could bring about disintegration of countries. There is no system in the world that is closed to federalism.

250

An operation should be carried out against the YPG. They have taken hold of the whole Turkish border from one end to the other and they are at the last stage, it is only a matter of time for them to reach the Mediterranean. They want to severe our ties with the Islamic world, with the rest of the Turkish world by creating a giant track in between. We should not let that happen. The necessary steps should be taken right away.

251

Do not look for the cursed ones among Jews and do not look for the cursed ones among Christians. The cursed ones are the ones who commit crime and persist in those crimes. Inoffensive people would not be cursed.

252

God's cursing a nation as a whole would not befit God's justice. There is no nation cursed by God. There might be individual people God cursed because of the offenses they have committed. Those who commit crimes are the ones who are cursed. Or else what is the sense in putting the blame on children? What is the sense in blaming the descendants of people?

253

The claim that Jews are cursed is a lie. There is no such thing. Those who behaved immorally at that time were the ones cursed. That is it. The door to repentance is open. One is cursed only if he is determined in immorality and in persecuting others. Wouldn't Muslims be cursed if they acted immorally? They would be cursed as well.

254

God loves our praying. Praying seems like an act of worship that is ignored. As if one should perform prayers but it is alright if one prays or not. Actually praying is crucial.

255

We need to attach importance to praying to God; prayers should be sincere. Not in the form of customary Arabic prayers: They memorize these prayers, yet do not know the meaning of what they are saying or their hodjas recite the prayer and everyone says "amen" yet no one understands what is said. That is not acceptable, everyone should pray sincerely as they feel inside.

256

Religion is life itself. Religion and life is in one another; there is music in religion, there is fun in religion. There is the best kind of food and beverage in religion. Everything that is beautiful and clean has a place in religion. Some regard religion as a mystical ceremony. Once that ceremony ends, life starts in their opinion. That is not acceptable. Religion is found throughout the whole of life.

257

People searching for love should train themselves to be loveable. The person you are facing might be a superior person, one with good morality who has trained himself very well and it is absolutely natural for you to love him, everyone would love such a person. What is important is for you to see if you are loveable or not. Better yourself, see how you serve God, see if you are a man of cause, see what your commitment to Islam and the Qur'an is like. See to which extent you are able to strain yourself under difficult conditions. As described in the Qur'an, see if you are ready for a steep path.

258

Some people thought that they could be comfortable when they move away from God but they saw that God devastated the world instead. Actually, they –in their twisted minds- imagined that they could test God. That is what God does in return. They have tested Him and saw the results in the First World War and in the Second World War. When people do not live according to God's Book, that is what happens.

259

Muslims are able to get deep in faith, in the love of God. God did not put any limit to profundity.

260

All the Turkish states and the Islamic world have had a longing for Turkey to take the lead for the Turkish -Islamic Union for many years. Federalism, which would come about with the presidential system, would be a system that would rule out this possibility, may God forbid.

261

If the system [in Turkey] is switched to a presidential system, that would bring about federalism. If Turkey is divided into pieces, there will be no meaning left in Turkey and it would be dealing a great blow to the Islamic Union. We are the last hope of the Islamic world, of the Turkish world.

262

One takes pleasure in pleading with God; one feels happy to do so. Loving the Almighty is a great pleasure for a helpless being such as man; God says, "I hear your pleading when you pray and I respond to your pleadings." What a pleasing, what a soothing feeling this is for such a helpless being. And God surely responds to every prayer.

263

Religion is like a user's manual on how to use this world. It teaches us what we should do for the Hereafter and for this world. Or else we wouldn't have known how to behave.

264

One should have only good opinions about God; God should never be forsaken. Good opinions about God must not ever be given up even under the most difficult conditions.

265

They do not put their trust in God at times of difficulty. Muslims should prepare themselves for this beforehand. With a very strong faith, a determined spirit, a profound love and a deep closeness, one should have love settled in his heart wholeheartedly.

266

It is very easy to learn love. People instantly embrace love. Right now, this issue has been dragged on to this extent in the world because no one steps up as a pioneer and persuades others. Otherwise, love is the zestiest blessing in the world. Human nature is created according to love. Even the cells understand love.

267

The most disastrous aspect of communism is that there is no sense of love, no compassion in it. I mean there is no love of God, no warmth.

268

Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will start a festive period. The hearts of the people will become rich in an instant. They will give what they have to one another, they will share their money and their means and everyone will watch over one another. An immense richness will come about. Goods will be distributed profusely. The whole ummah will rejoice. The whole world, the poor and the needy, those living in misery, everyone will rejoice.

269

The festivities of the Islamic world will start with the system of the Mahdi. There will not be a single person in need. Goods will constantly be distributed among them.

270

Because we have ideologically crushed the PKK and made their real faces be seen by the public, they do not have the courage to appear in public. Everyone despises the PKK. In the past, they were exalting them in their minds and presenting them as if they were "sacred".

271

The Islamic community is a festive community. Let us say you are walking in the street and you get tired. You go and knock the door of a random house and say, "As-Salam alaykum." You would be invited in and the host would welcome you, saying, "Come in and dine with us." When night falls, the host would ask you to stay the night and if you like it, you do. This is how the Muslim community is; this is how it was at the time of the companions of our Prophet (saas). Later on, these niceties were forgotten in time.

272

If God loves you, even if you burn furiously in a fire, your heart would be like a bed of roses. No one would refrain from fire; what is troubling and distressing is losing God's amity. They do not get that properly. They take it as if it is something like fearing fire. As a matter of fact, you would be losing God's affection for all eternity and that is a terrible plague.

273

When talking about fear of God, they take it as if it is something like fearing weapons or blades. Actually fear of God is refraining from offending God, from losing God's love.

274

In the Qur'an, we see that God takes performing prayers as a measure. That is because in the verses, the people of the hell are asked; 'What has led you into the Hell Fire?' And they respond “They will answer: We were not of those who prayed." That means it is a very crucial measure. Performing prayers is a very joyous, beautiful, bountiful and luminous act of worship. It is a blessing from God.

275

A Muslim would never want to give up his faith; he would be terrified. That unwillingness to give up faith is faith. Or else whisperings might come and go but a Muslim believes in his subconscious as well. Once he believes in God faith settles in his heart.

276

Faith is the sincere belief in one's subconscious. Or else one's mind might come and go. I mean all kinds of opinions might pass through one's mind. For instance, one might think if something is right or wrong; these are ideas inside one's brain. Ideas would be like a storm in one’s mind. They have nothing to do with faith. They are called the whisperings of satan. Faith is something settled in, I mean a sincere conviction that is intertwined with, one's consciousness, one’s good conscience.

277

For one who spent all his life as a Muslim, it would be the whispering of satan to be concerned saying something like, "Would I be able to preserve my faith at the moment of death?" There is no need to take that serious. No such thing would happen. I mean a wholehearted, subconscious faith is the basis. Or else something might happen to one's mind, such whisperings have no validity. God would look at one in all his integrity.

278

Some Muslims say, "I am a good person, I would not be troubled with difficulties." Actually, that would be very weird. If you are seriously favored in a testing environment, it would annul the free will of mind. It would even take the free will of your mind. You are being tested as well. That is why prophets have diseases as well.

279

Clinging on to this world with ambition turn into an insane effort in people. When that is the case, the world runs away from them and they chase after it. Trade runs away from them, they chase after that trade. Money runs away from them and they chase after the money. That is exactly the opposite in Muslims. Muslims go towards God and while they go towards God, the goods and money chases after them.

280

The way for hearts to find relief is in serving Islam, in understanding the Qur'an, in loving God a lot, in fearing God, in constantly being close to God, in always thinking positive about God. It is unacceptable to not think positively about God; anyone who does that would be embarrassed every single time. One fails to think positive because he doesn't understand the wisdom behind it.

281

Keeping away from Muslims means keeping away from God. Keeping away from the Qur'an means keepng away from God. Keeping away from the cause of Islam means keeping away from God.

282

Whereever you go, you won't be able to walk away from God. God is nearer to you than your jugular vein. Where are you running to? One might assume that he can get away from God, from Islam, from the Qur'an by running, but he cannot.

283

You make a run for trade, leaving Muslims aside, but even if you gain something from that worldly trade what you gain would be left in this world. And you would pass away from this world in no time.

284

To listen to our Prophet (saas) they need to gather in a place. They say, "There is a commercial opportunity here, the goods have arrived, and everyone rushes about and leaves our Prophet (saas) standing”. They will have to give account of every single step they have taken while rushing about. They will have to give account of every single minute, every single second of leaving our prophet (saas) standing.

285

From the moment you get on a plane, when you sit in that plane, when you get off that plane, while you wander around the streets, God will ask you, "Why did you keep away from Muslims, why did you remain aloof to Islam, why did you not spread God's religion?" That is because God says that "Muslims are not distracted by trade or commerce from the remembrance of God." Yet you are distracted.

286

Every time one gets away from Islam, from the Qur'an, from Muslims, every single second is written as a sin against you, every single second. You will answer for every single second. Keeping away from Islam, from the Qur'an, from Muslims is unlawful. You might assume that it is something easy, but you would have to give an account for every such single second in the Hereafter.

287

The greatest mistake is when a person gets sick, he takes some medicine and thinks, "I can get over this disease with this medicine." In fact one should honestly say, "Oh Lord, make this medicine instrumental in my healing." Or one gets injured, something happens and he puts on an antibiotic saying, "Alright, this will do it." But that is not how it should be, you should say, "My Lord, make this instrumental". Otherwise you would be idolizing that medicine. God is the One Who creates that medicine, Who gives that medicine that power to heal. God is the One Who shows that image inside your brain.

288

God says 'Muslims are brothers.' (Surat Al-Hujurat, 10) You are their protective friend and guide, you are not allowed to leave them in any kind of difficulty. You are responsible for everything about them. The whole of society, everyone is responsible for one another. Then, an environment like heaven would come about.

289

Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is the one with the highest conscience. He is not a politician. He merely is a teacher of love. He makes sure that everyone loves one another and does away violence and terror. He brings on love.

290

To show quality to people, Ataturk personally put it into practice on himself and on those around him. He showed how to dance a waltz, how to dress up and the jauntiest, the most beautiful of ties, shirts, jackets and everything. He said this is how you should be and set an example for our people.

291

No movement against the system of the Mahdi could ever be successful. Any movement that rejects the second coming of the prophet Jesus Messiah (pbuh) is bound to be defeated.

292

Just like the antichrist held sway of the Islamic world with a small force, Hazrat Mahdi will unite the world that is in shambles, with a small force and he will hold sway of the whole world. This is the law of God.

293

Read the Treatise of Light because there is a spirit in it. There is the spirit of the Companions of our Prophet (saas), there is the sincere characteristic of a Muslim. It is not possible to find this in other works.

294

I see everything inside my brain. Who creates these images inside my brain? God does. For whom would be my love then? For God. I cannot love any independent being. I would be lying, I would be fooling myself. That is because all I see is what God creates for me.

295

It is not possible for a ship to sail without a captain. Waves would hit it from everywhere. The Islamic world is like a ship without a captain right now. It runs aground on the rocks and then gets caught by a storm; it is in ruins.

296

Had there been a leader in the Islamic world, would the occupation of Afghanistan be possible? Would this bloodshed in full flood in Iraq, this bloodshed in Syria be possible? No such thing would ever happen. Because Muslims have no leader, this massacre goes on in full speed.

297

There are about 1.8 billion Muslims in the world right now. Since 1924, Muslims do not have any actual leader. Christians have a leader, Jews have a leader, the Freemasons have a leader, every group has a leader. Only Islamic world has no leader and that is not acceptable.

298

We are absolutely against the violence and terror employed by ISIS, we would never accept such acts. The method we employ is love, science, culture and wisdom. But this system of ISIS stems from the ultra-orthodox understanding of Islam. We can only draw them towards the right lines with knowledge. We can only draw them towards the right lines with the Qur'an, not with bombs.

299

Turkey is the master of compassion. The refugees are suffering through great ordeals at the sea, up in the mountains and the notables of Europe do not even give them the time of the day. Turkey is the one that shows the greatest compassion. In Istanbul alone there are more refugees than in the whole of Europe. Look at the compassion of our people. We have accepted the highest number of refugees and if we had the means we would have taken them all in.

300

One would fall into heedlessness if he sees himself as self-sufficient. Criticizing one's self is one of the most acceptable acts of worship, it is one of the most beautiful characteristics of a Muslim that opens his mind. Those who do not criticize themselves become insane and lose their minds; they would be ruined. Those who criticize themselves find relief.

301

Hypocrites cannot live among unbelievers; they can only live with other hypocrites. They are such a special community. Their vileness is deeper. That is why they are sent to the deepest layer of hell.

302

Unbelievers are superior than hypocrites. Unbelievers are the lesser evil; that is because they act honestly and say that they do not believe. This is not the case for hypocrites, they hide themselves among Muslims and act treacherously. They hope for their help and try to have them crushed by providing intelligence about them. They try to have Muslims crushed by forging alliances with the unbelievers.

303

With faith, you commit to Almighty God Who is the Owner of everything and you feel wondrously at ease. For Muslims, meteorites are wandering in the sky like lambs. But for an irreligious person they are horrifying monsters. For instance, the magma underneath us is like lukewarm milk for us. But it is like hell for an irreligious person, a sizzling hell that would burn them. Our hearts are at ease because we fear only God. We know how God would command it; we know that the magma is under the command of God. We know that every single atom in the magma is invoking the name of God and that it all submits to God.

304

With what we could explain the horror, pain, misery and ugliness in the faces of the PKK militants? With their empty minds, they believe that they came into existence as a result of coincidences. They do not understand, they do not know what will happen in the universe. They see the world in a state of chaos- may God forbid- as they call it. They see life as horrifying. The future is terrifying for them; the past is terrifying as well. They have a terrifying life. Anything can happen any moment. Anything could strike the world any moment, anything could happen to them at any moment. They are horrified. They live in desolateness and despair.

305

When one invokes the name of God, feels love for God, his heart would feel relieved. That is what a Muslim lives, that is what we see. Muslims really are very happy and healthy. We look at their faces and see that they are radiant and in peace, and that their hearts are at ease. They feel the joy of being with God forever.

306

What is perfect morality? It is patience, compassion, self-sacrifice, honesty, bravery and loyalty. Without fear of God, one would fall into heedlessness. For instance, one might say that he loves God but not perform prayers, saying, "I love God, God doesn't need my prayers." He might have a lot of money but not give alms, saying, "Those in need can find it elsewhere. I do love God and money makes me happy, it helps me be close to God." Or perhaps, one does not act bravely, saying, "I should not risk my life, I am living nicely here." But in fear of God one shows courage.

307

Real love would never come to an end because it originates from Almighty God. Real love goes on in death, in the Hereafter; it goes on forever.

308

When you love someone, you don't act curtly towards that person, you don't act stingy, you do not act egotistically; you look out for that person's comfort, you have that person's best interests at heart.

309

If you act rudely, you lose love. If you behave kindly, you gain love. If one is egotistical, he loses love; if he acts in a self-sacrificing manner, love will come back instantly and it will come back even stronger.

310

You would appear as a mad person when you boast, when you become haughty. That would be very repellent and you wouldn't be loved. When you boast, when you act haughtily you make yourself unlovable. Why do you boast? Why do you act haughtily? You do so, to make people love you, right? Actually it has the exact opposite effect and you lose all the love you have.

311

People abandon religion because of the radicals. With Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) people will enter religion in droves again. But of course that would be a very fast flow. These droves will take place near the time of the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and those droves will enter Islam in masses.

312

Ingratitude is the only reason behind God's giving that many troubles in this world. Without gratitude, there would be ingratitude. All these sufferings are the retaliation of that ingratitude. Ingratitude is so horrible. It is such a grave remorselessness.

313

Some people have a tendency to leave God alone. Actually God wants to be loved, He wants to have a lot of people loving Him. If you attempt to leave God alone, then He would leave you alone as well. If you forsake God, He would forsake you as well.

314

God wants to be loved wholeheartedly. If you idolize the images God created and imagine that they have separate existence from God, if you tell such a lie, you would be fooling yourself and that would be a very foolish act. Such an act would offend God. God would then turn it into trouble, into much suffering for them.

315

Some people might be thinking that they would not be able to take pleasure if they give their love to God. Actually only then they can take the greatest pleasure; only then God would give that depth, that profundity.

316

The one you say you love is actually an image inside your brain. Who is the One Who creates them to the smallest detail? Who is the One Who makes you love and Who makes you speak? God is the One Who creates all these. I mean there is nothing that belongs to the person across from you. If you give your love to an imaginary idol instead of God, that would be the worst kind of deception: You would be deceiving yourself.

317

It would not be acceptable if love is contaminated with idolatry. For instance, one might say, "I do love my friend a lot, I do love my spouse a lot." And when then asked, "Do you love God?" he says, "I love God as well." That is not acceptable. He should say, "I love my spouse for the good pleasure of God, I love my friend for the good pleasure of God. I love them as the manifestations of God."

318

All the incidents take place as foretold in the hadiths. We will see Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and we will see the prophet Jesus Messiah as well. We will see the Islamic Union and we will all pass away after we do our duty. No one will remain here. The ones that remain the last will follow us as well, the world will be empty and then the Last Day will break loose.

319

One might be beautiful but arrogant and that beauty would not have any meaning. Beauty can also be an incitement. One might be young and beautiful but become mad with arrogance and vanity. You might see someone as ugly but that person could love madly and passionately. That person could then present a thousand times more beauty than those you call beautiful.

320

A poor person would be humble and modest. They would appreciate the value of their blessings much more. Wealth might appear to be a blessing but poverty is a great spiritual wealth as well. And that is not that much known.

321

They should show me an ugly yet faithful person. A sincere person would never be ugly; that would never happen.

322

The love of those who are in need would be far more stronger. Their passion is very nice. Those who look for real passion, real art, real beauty are among them. All the prophets came from poverty. And God made them all rich. They were the ones who experienced the most beautiful form of passion.

323

I do love Bediuzzaman Said Nursi and I am proud of that. I do love Sheikh Nazım Al-Qubrusi. I do love the Menzil community. I do love Süleyman Hilmi Tunahan. I do love His Highness Abdulbaki Erol. I do love all Muslims. I do not adopt the haughty attitude of some so-called intellectuals. I always express my love openly everywhere. Timid, cowardly, insincere attitudes always bring about disasters, inauspiciousness and nothing else.

324

When they come across a hypocrite, Muslims should immediately hold on to other Muslims. They should receive help from sound-minded Muslims. That is because they would be conversing with satan at that moment. Satan is the greatest scholar in evilness. They cannot deal with the knowledge of satan. For instance, satan instantly determines with which purpose a word is uttered, in which sense one's soul is weak, what their weaknesses are. That is why especially naive and stagnant Muslims should be protected very well. Hypocrites have such a high power of leaping and bouncing.

325

Hypocrites want Muslims to fall apart and disperse. That is because they imagine that their crime would be cleared away if Muslims disperse. I mean that would make everyone as guilty as they are and they would thus be relieved. That is why they constantly wait for an opportunity that would cause Muslims to disperse. What could they do in our age, for instance? They might use the internet, they might use computers, etc. They might use gossip and hearsay.

326

Hypocrites are so lazy, so nonchalant and so egoist that they submit their brains to the satan. Then they start admiring themselves because satan gives them amazing information. That is to say, with their verbosity, with their repartee, it is very easy for hypocrites to fool naive, stagnant- minded Muslims.

327

Hypocrites are so spineless. Actually if they were to use a little bit of will-power, they would not surrender to satan but they surrender their minds to satan. Actually they would be saved if they resisted a little bit.

328

The community of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) continues until Hijri 1506 (2082-2083 A.D.). After Hijri 1506, the form of preaching the message of religion, their system changes completely. I mean after that date, Muslims would only be able to communicate with each other with very secret, hidden symbols, because they will kill all Muslims. The Qur'an will be burned and there will be nothing left pertaining to acts of worship. They will burn down the mosques, they will demolish the Kaba'a and only the plain field of the Kaba'a will remain. They will not leave behind anything pertaining to what is holy.

329

One asks, "Why do we have difficulties in this world?" That is because otherwise people are unable to leave the world behind. This difficult environment is a must to separate hypocrites from Muslims, devout ones and the good ones. Or else everyone would power through easiness and so do the hypocrites. But in hardship, hypocrites fail and cannot power through.

330

The power of speech hypocrites have is astounding. I mean it is not possible for an ordinary person to deal with it. That is because they try to drag others to their own path every now and then. A Muslim might be taken unaware and get in their path. However, the response should always be given with the Qur'an. Because they get into that satanic mood, they talk in a satanic fashion and a Muslim might be taken unaware and get in their path. The hypocrites then start speaking with their intelligence. Actually one should respond hypocrites with wisdom against their intelligence.

331

Muslims are loyal to other Muslims. But hypocrites secretly hate Muslims and are full of themselves. The attitude of the hypocrites is just like the narcissistic attitude of satan.

332

Hypocrites deny their immorality until the last minute. They do not accept it, even in the Hereafter. They act garrulous but Almighty God stops their speech. God takes away their verbosity.

333

Hypocrites provide great advantages for Muslims. First of all, their existence increase the fervency and enthusiasm of Muslims. It increases their determination for struggling on the path of God, broadens their horizons and increases their vigilance. It mitigates their lassitude and languish in case they have such weaknesses. They become bolder and more sincere.

334

It is very important to recognize the hypocrites at early stages. Sometimes it takes a lot of time to recognize them. But either way, hypocrites increase the good deeds Muslims attain and increase their rank in Heaven. They expand their rank in Heaven.

335

Satan talks from the mouth of the hypocrites. That is why Muslims with naive hearts cannot deal with satan. Hypocrites are silver-tongued. Satan gets hold of the mouths and the brains of those hypocrites and from that point on, satan becomes the one they are dealing with, not those people across them.

336

Those with weak minds can be influenced by the hypocrites. In the Qur'an, God says "...and if they speak you listen to what they say." (Surat Al-Munafiqun; 4) Hypocrites have the gift of the gab. That is because their mouths are bound to satan.

337

Looking for the most of God's approval is something the hypocrites like the least. Hypocrites would only go for the things they like, for the things that serve their interests and leave those that do not serve their purposes aside. In their twisted minds, only the parts of the Qur'an that are in their favor are valid, only those parts that comply with their lower-selves are valid. They do not accept those parts that go against their lower-selves.

338

When one catches the sickness of hypocrisy, he only loves himself and cannot love other Muslims. Something comes over him as he dives into arrogance and he starts finding an excuse for every perversity he has. He makes an excuse for every impertinent act of his and the most dangerous aspect of hypocrisy is that they start defending themselves with the Qur'an. I mean they distort the Book with their tongues.

339

It is an abnormality if one claims that he has faith yet still lacks love for Muslims. It is savagery if one loves only himself. It is abnormal if one cannot find something to love in Muslims.

340

The greatest scourge on the right wing is that the number of sincere people among them is really few. Yet there are far more sincere ones in the left wing. The reason for the tendency in people's hearts towards the left is their tendency for sincerity. They need to be sincere. It is difficult to find loving people among the right wing; it is difficult to find sincere people among them. But you can find such people among the left wing.

341

What is obstinacy? It is immorality and cruelty. Your good conscience is convinced; then why do you dig your heels in? With whom do you try to curry favor, to whom do you act disdainfully? Feel love for your Creator. God says, "I will love you but you should show your love to Me strongly and appreciate the blessings I gave you."

342

God gives us blessings incessantly for 24 hours every day yet some people do not even want to spare half an hour of that time to God. That makes them deserving of their scourges.

343

Almighty God says, "If you forget Me, I will forget you as well." That is a disaster on its own if He forgets you. This is known to the human soul as well. When you do something good for someone and he responds with evil, when you give him blessings but he responds with malice; when you show him love and he responds with malice, when you try to appease him yet he responds with vileness. You show patience once and then twice and then three times, but then you severe all your contact with him.

344

God says, "If you forget Me, I will forget you as well." That is something known to the human soul as well; a person would want to see the most beautiful response to their love and that is also what God wants.

345

Almighty God gives blessings in abundance but the lack of thanking Him for those blessings is really irritating. You are invited to a palace, there are amazing foods, desserts, yet you simply eat them and leave yelling and kicking the door with your foot on your way out. Neither a thank you, nor any admiration; that would of course draw scourges upon you.

346

Love of God, closeness to God drives away scourges. Living by Islam meticulously, heeding the lawful and unlawful acts defined in the Qur'an is what drives away scourges.

347

People keep asking why do troubles find them? If you feel thankful, troubles would not follow you. But if you fail to do that, you would be deserving of those troubles. Muslims are of course tried, but would not be plagued.

348

God only wants love. If you begrudge that love, then God would make you feel the pains of life, death and everything else many times over.

349

Almighty God says, "If you love Me, if you appreciate Me with My true measure, then you will have strong love as well." That is because those who fail to appreciate God with His true measure couldn't know love. How could one who is unable to appreciate his Beloved know love?

350

God has unfurled wealth and glory in folds, in an incomparable manner, What God wants is "to be measured with His true measure." He says, "Love Me, know Me, be in love with Me so that I will love you back and let you live in happiness for all eternity."

351

Without love, without passion, without profundity, without real love; what are you looking for, everything loses its meaning. You know as some say, those left behind are beastly people. They are so repulsive, so disturbing to us, we have trouble calling them humans. But if one is self-sacrificing, courageous, patient, determined and brave we feel an admiration for him.

352

God always wants love. Or else neither beauty, nor anything else would have any meaning. Think about the mansions in Heaven and think about them filled with robot-like beings, think about those robot-like beings swimming in the pools of Heaven. Such a view, may God forbid, would be painful. As God bestows that blessing on humans carrying God's soul, on those who've suffered through ordeals, difficulties, an amazing beauty would be formed. With that, Heaven would find its meaning and by that, God would be measured with His true measure.

353

A Heaven resided in by robots is not an environment God likes, God doesn't want robots. One who hasn't proven his loyalty, his patience or his courage wouldn't have a feeling of self-worth in that sense. That means he couldn't regard himself as worthy and beautiful if he didn't make sacrifices, if he didn't act generously, if he didn't strive on the path of God, if he didn't do anything to show his love.

354

Anyone who demonstrates and voices that he is a supporter of the PKK should be arrested. They should build prisons that could house a hundred thousand people in total and fill them with those people. That is because that is a matter of survival for Turkey.

355

The disintegration of Turkey means the breaking loose of the Last Day. The Sun, Moon, the world would all be flattened and everywhere would turn into a vast, plain field. They should forget about it, no such thing would ever happen.

356

Satan prevents people from pronouncing the word "love". In response, everyone should insistently utter the word "love" in their speeches and in their writings. Love is the key of this world, it is the key of life. Once it is opened, the whole world would be opened.

357

Imam Huseyin's blood cannot be avenged with blood. That can only be done by making the morality of the Qur'an prevail in the world, by bringing forth Islamic Unity.

358

Use your mind, think on it, look for the wisdom and you will see a bright, luminous world. You do not pay attention to God, but you pay attention to vain things. That would offend Almighty God. They play backgammon for hours, for four or five hours. Give your mind to God, turn to God, instead.

359

God creates everything beautifully and on a plan. But one should constantly look for the wisdom behind it. If you do not see the wisdom, you would feel bored in this world. Your heart will be squeezed. But your heart will open up when you look to see that wisdom.

360

What a pleasant feeling love is; love cats, love butterflies, love people. What would you lose? Have your heart's content, you will have your heart open up, your brain will be relieved. Your mind would open up. Open them all; loving is an act of worship.

361

A woman is like a flower. Women are walking flowers, beautifully scented flowers. Just like you would show respect to a flower, just like you would protect a flower, you should protect women as well. In the Qur'an, Almighty God says that He "caused her to grow like a lovely plant… " for Hazrat Maryam.

362

Love is in the spirit of people. Hatred, rage and quarrelsomeness are horrible feelings; they would ruin one, be the end of one. One would become sick, may God forbid. One's heart cannot bear it, one becomes distressed and strained. A lack of love is a poison for the body. The body would be refreshed with love.

363

Some people appear on television programs and you see that there is a cruel environment in which everyone tears down one another. If they were to say, "All will be solved if we approach each other with love," with a single sentence. They can't say this. If they were to get used to using such terms of endearment, their sphere of influence would expand. They should talk about love at every opportunity.

364

The word "love" is not used anywhere. Say it once, say it and you will see that you will open up. Say “Bismillah” and then mention love, you will see that it will follow. Get used to saying it. Let us encourage youth, let us encourage everyone. Let us start a campaign. So that people will get used to write about and talk about love.

365

Many people were against our modernity but step by step, they've come to our modernity. That is a transitional stage. And now they will go through another stage. They will then come to a more modern line, to the real Islam as found in the Qur'an.

366

People are preaching religion wrongly. They are talking of it as a horrible and inextricable system. Praise be to God, being the radiant face of Islam, we have spoiled that plot of the satan. Or else Islamaphobia is a system that could annihilate all Muslims.

367

It would be very dangerous to dwell on people not believing in God. That is because God says, "You will come to Me all alone." There is a secret here. In this sense, what is it to us if other people believe or not? God has created us with an open conscience and God's existence is a clear fact.

368

Atheism has started to regress in Israel. It used to be very strong before. After we have distributed the Atlas of Creation in Israel, after we distributed our books in Hebrew, the return to religion has picked up speed. A return to religion has picked up speed in Europe and in the US as well; we've been instrumental in that.

369

We are the radiant face of Islam for the whole world. When those who know Islam as a horrible, introverted, loveless system that has a grudge against women, that has turned life into a horror, see Islam as we live it, when they see Islam as it was lived at the time of the Companions, they feel an admiration for Islam. And they recognize that Islam is their salvation. Otherwise, they are all in misery.

370

Religion is love, it is relief, beauty, exhilaration and joy. It enables you to use the blessings of God legitimately in the most beautiful manner. An understanding of religion which claims that it is an offense to turn right or to turn left, to look upwards or to look downwards, is not acceptable. That would devastate people make them psychopathic and cause them lose their sanity. It is cruelty to complicate religion. And they are carrying out this cruelty without being aware of it.

371

Some people think that they would get even closer to God as they complicate religion. Actually you would end up in Hell for failing to give an account for keeping people away from God's religion. One should show people the ease in religion, just like God has revealed.

372

Making religion difficult is a cruelty inflicted upon the whole world. That is because people suffer anguish when they become estranged to religion.

373

God says, "Repel the bad with something better and if there is enmity between you and someone else, he will be like a bosom friend." That means God tells us that He will reconcile the disputes and remove that enmity you have between each other.

374

Love is the most beautiful aspect of the world. It is the most beautiful aspect of life. That is because love is interconnected with faith. Those who love God would also love people as His manifestations.

375

Weak and pessimistic words are not acceptable. One needs to avoid that in general. They should talk about the solution. There is nothing to be ashamed of and it is not something they should be offended by. Love is a splendid word.

376

Some people speak about everything that could be negative yet fail to pronounce the remedy for it. They need to give utterance to that remedy with a single word; that word is “love”. Everyone should make their mouths get used to pronounce the word love. The only solution for this sickness, for this disaster in the world, is love.

377

Some claim that they are against war, yet they still support the PKK. How could you be against war then? What does the PKK do with those weapons they have? They martyr our people. So you are not against war, you are simply lying. You cannot be pro-peace if you are supporting armed gangs.

378

Some youngsters imagine that the more they fight, the more they make innuendos, the more they would appear to have a strong character. How could one who doesn't know about love be strong in character? First of all, one needs to know love in order to be qualified as human. There is nothing left without love.

379

If one writes even a single sentence about love, that sentence would get hold of that person. That is to say that person would be captured by that sentence but as they write only hateful things, they become captured by what they write. Those letters hypnotize them and that profane language gets them into a state of hypnosis. Actually if they were to hypnotize themselves with love, they would have been under the influence of that hypnosis. They would be enveloped with that love as they write.

380

We need to make love take hold and become fashionable. The writers should also take the initiative and make love a constant agenda. This lack of love would ruin people; it is so horrible. If terms of endearment are uttered, if people talk about love, they will eventually get under the influence of love.

381

What the TV channels should really lay stress on are the facts leading to faith. When the hodjas, religious scholars appear on TV they usually talk about things that have happened in the past. They are not at all concerned with whether or not those people have faith. Actually the greatest problem we have is the problem in people's faith in God.

382

It is not right to wish for Hell for anyone. One should only ask God for the other's guidance on to the right path and for goodness.

383

Being called "crazy" shows the perfection of a Muslim's faith. Our prophet (saas) says, "A Muslim cannot attain perfection in faith unless he is called crazy." Actually, because of their loyalty to Islam, to the Qur'an, because of their enthusiasm, it is said, "If you had seen the Companions, you would have called them crazy." They distribute all they have, everything they own.

384

They do not have to make a mistake simply because Israel is mistaken as well. If you approach them in a friendly manner with love, you will see that they will become your friends. You approach them in a friendly way, with love. But if you approach them with knives they will approach you with bombs and tanks. There will be no end to this. But if you approach them with love, you will see that they will become your friends and respond with love. That is a secret of the Qur'an.

385

One would ask for a long life to serve Islam. Without that service for Islam, life could turn into trouble for one. One might have a long life but end up in the depths of Hell as a result. An auspicious, long life is important. If that auspiciousness, those good deeds are lost, if one does not serve on the path of God, a long life would do him no good. A long life is important only to serve Islam.

386

None of us will remain in this world. What important is to go to the Hereafter with one's honor. Martyrs are going to the Hereafter with such an honor.

387

Muslims are one another's brothers. They should love one another and protect each other, watch over one another. They will look at each other with good intentions with love and look for goodness in each other, both in good days and in bad days. They will not look at each other with prejudice or with political intent. No matter from which party they are, no matter from which walk of life they are, we have to look out for them. Muslims are each other's brothers and sisters and they are protective friends of one another.

388

‘’We did not send down the Qur'an to you to make you miserable." (Surah Ta-Ha, 2) One would think. Do you not understand? If you are miserable that means you are on the wrong path, if you are having difficulties that means you are on the wrong path. Islam is a religion of ease.

389

Why are you pushing for difficulty? There is music in Islam, there are arts. You can laugh and have fun, you can dance as you like and perform your prayers as well. Then you can go travel and swim if you like. Killing every aspect of social life has no place in Islam. You deem all lawful things unlawful. God has given all those to you as blessings, and by wiping out these blessings, you are struggling against the religion of God.

390

The Islamic community lives in a festive environment with an amazing enthusiasm. Everyone goes to each other's homes for sleep-overs, for dinners. They visit one another. For instance, let us say that one will build a home, everyone goes there and helps out and they build it together. They are served food there and eat together.

391

It is of course very important to be at our Prophet (saas)'s elbow. It is a great comfort for the Companions of our Prophet (saas). Actually people do not know the Islamic community that well. Muslims are like a big family. If one has a mansion with thirty rooms for instance, he fills it will Muslims, the food is cooked for all of them. The goods are distributed. Trade is done together, everything is shared and done commonly. That is an unprecedented system.

392

People should stop trying to teach morality to women. They need to educate men. Women know what they should do very well. People should stop trying to instruct women on how to dress, how to laugh, how to sit, how to look.

393

What the PYD/YPG is after is the only region on the Turkish border that they couldn't get hold of, and that is Cerablus. That is a small region that they want to get hold of. That is why they demand weapons. Or else they have nothing to do with ISIS. What they are after is to establish a Stalinist state.

394

Good morality is necessary for people to live well in society. The Qur'an is the source of good morality. Societies can lead a normal life only when the commands in the Qur'an related with humaneness are put into practice.

395

Women are the most beautiful embellishment of this world, there is nothing more beautiful than they are and there is no other blessing greater than them. God created them very, very beautifully, He created them to be very kind and to be very beautiful mannered; they are created as blessings.

396

If women are oppressed and persecuted, that country would certainly collapse: That would offend God. God would destroy the country in which His servants are persecuted.

397

When the one you preach religion to does not come to faith, your rank will advance even further. If he is less excited than you are, your rank will advance even further. You have nothing to lose.

398

Muslims are brothers. God says, "Muslims are each other's protecting friends." Let us create a system in which all Muslims would love one another. They are all brothers. Look, God says “...they are each other's protecting friends," meaning they are each other's protectors. They take care of one another, they help each other, they take care of each other when they are ill, they take care of everything about each other. I mean, they take care of each other like they would take care of a child.

399

No matter whose, every funeral should be respected. There should be no humiliation in any funeral; once one is dead, once his soul is gone and there is only flesh and bone behind to decompose, it should be respected regardless of who it belongs to.

400

The love of God brings relief to people. If the love of God is explained in a country day in and day out, there will be abundance and plenty in that country and their lives would be like Heaven. Otherwise they would all be distressed.

401

Misogynism is atrocious, you should forget about it. Women are the most beautiful beings that embellish the world. Without women, the world would be overcast, it would be pitch black. Woman is the sun of the world; they are the light of this world.

402

This is the classic method of the PKK and they bomb their own supporters and cause public indignation. In this way they try to draw people to their side. During this time of terror and violence, they say, "Look, as you can see, the fascists are bombing you, they are oppressing you. That means the only solution is war. You should go up the mountains and take up arms." This is the image the PKK is trying to create.

403

Muslims are always in a good mood. What does sorrow mean? May God forbid, it means, "I do not like what God has created for me." We see the goodness in everything God creates. We see the goodness in it when we have a martyr; we do not get sad, we do not mourn. Mourning is a custom of the pagans, it is the tradition of the idolaters.

404

Life is beautiful for Muslims. For unbelievers life is always distressful, painful and restricted. A Muslim is always thankful; even if he eats dry bread, he thanks God for it.

405

God creates angels, but they are made to love Him. God commands man to love Him without seeing Him. "There will be unbelievers, there will be hypocrites, there will be irreligious people. You will suffer, you will patiently endure difficulties and you will love Me with a profound love. Then I will love you very much," God says. God loves the angels, but they are incomparable with man.

406

Almighty God says, “I want to see your love for Me.” God wants to have people who He loves and He wants there to be those who love Him. God has everything. He is Omnipotent and He wants to have people who love Him.

407

God gives you a three dimensional image and you view it inside your brain; He gives you the ability to smell beautiful scents so that you smell them; He gives you the ability of tasting so that you find pleasure in those tastes; He gives you the sense of touch so that you touch, you swim in the sea, you go boating, you enjoy the world to the utmost; but when it comes to the Creator, you say, "I do not want to be the object of this." God would then plague you. This world is not a place of entertainment.

408

Ours is the world of trial. The important thing is to make Islam prevail in the world. The rest is not at all important. Once Islam prevails in the world, everyone would be at ease, everything you have would be under guarantee. If Islam does not prevail in the world, it would turn into a living hell.

409

Building a third bridge or a fourth bridge is not our problem. You might build bridges, but your enemy could still come and confiscate all your bridges, take away everything from you. You might work for 40 years yet they could come and seize everything you own. That is why the real danger that should be addressed is the danger of separation.

410

Turkey is the bastion of Islamic Unity. That is why she needs to have a very severe reaction to anything that would give the green light to the separation of Turkey. Ensuring the integrity of the people is very important.

411

The hadiths that do not conflict with the Qur'an are authentic. Every hadith that complies with the Qur'an is authentic. For instance, if our Prophet (saas) foretells an incident that will take place in the End Times, the hadith that tells us about that incident is authentic and valid.

412

Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) has come. The Prophet Jesus Messiah (pbuh) has come, but has not yet become apparent. Almighty God is preparing their time of appearance, their time of becoming apparent. The events will reach inconceivable dimensions. Right now we are at a phase of the system of the Mahdi; I mean events will escalate to inconceivable dimensions in Syria, in Iraq, in the whole region. They will escalate immensely and much bigger incidents will take place. And after that, Almighty God will make His Mahdi apparent.

413

Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is a man of love, mercy, compassion, wisdom, friendship, beauty and aesthetics. Europe will accept him, the US will accept him, whole world freemasonry will lovingly accept him, all the Templars, the Rosicrucian Fellowship and all the deep state organizations will accept him. That is why Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will be the imam of the world.

414

Struggling against the PKK is an individual duty for every Muslim. It is a religious obligation for Muslims to wipe out unbelief from the face of this world. Struggling against the antichrist is an individual duty on every Muslim. No one should ever say, "It is none of my business." This is the individual duty of everyone. Of course, our way in that is the way of knowledge and education.

415

Darwinist education was given during the Ottomans. What is a Darwinist education? An education system that denies the existence of God and says, "God did not create you, you've come into existence through coincidences". That is a grave and comprehensively unlawful act that had been carried out since the Ottomans; it was a great corruption and a grave fitna. And that was the reason for the collapse of the Ottomans.

416

The families of the martyrs are very honorable people. They can feel honored with their children God covers in blessings. That is because God has taken their children directly to His heaven. They have become the people, the lambs of Heaven. That makes them the mothers, the fathers of those lambs of Heaven. What a great beauty, what a honorable parenthood. The reward God gives those mothers and fathers because of their patience will be abundant.

417

Any country that fails to ensure the freedom of women would certainly be devastated. Let me say that much. There is a decision taken about this, this is the reward of it in the Sight of God and the reward of it in the world. Any system, any government, any state that is misogynistic, that suppresses and persecutes women is bound to collapse; they should know this much.

418

The goal of the PKK, why it was founded is not well -known in Turkey. Actually, in (the mistaken view of) Armageddon, there is this great Muslim slaughter; the West does not want to use their own assassins but they use the murderers of the PKK, the professional murderers.

419

For perfect love, there should be perfect morality. For perfect morality, there should be perfect fear of God. All of them are related with love and aim love.

420

For one to live by the Qur'an, the Qur'an should be all around him. He should have the Qur'an right by his side, at his desk. He should hold on to the Qur'an like bread, like water.

421

Just like the PKK that gives an ideological education, we need to give an ideological education to Turkish soldiers, police officers and Turkish youth. "How can we attain national unity and integrity? What is the danger of PKK? What are the characteristics of communist organizations? How can communism get foothold? Why is the philosophy behind communism tainted and wrong? Why is Darwinism invalid?" All these matters should be taught in schools. Or else, may God forbid, there will be nothing left remaining from Turkey.

422

There is a struggle of survival. Turkey will either vanish completely, or become exalted and lead the whole Islamic world and the Turkish world; she will reach a beautiful point and wait for God to bestow that holy leadership on her.

423

National conscience is the most crucial subject matter. If we lose Turkey, what good could come if one is an engineer or not? That is why we need to put courses on national conscience in our curriculum as soon as possible.

424

There should be courses on national conscience in our curriculum. Lessons on the communist threat, the threat of partitioning Turkey, the dangers of Darwinism and materialism, on how to resist and respond to these ideologies should be taught by experienced teachers for at least three hours a week.

425

Love is the meaning of life. Hatred is far more difficult and it destroys one spiritually and physically. It destroys society, brings down social life and the economy. Hatred is dreadful.

426

What God is interested in particular is the love felt for Him. One should be madly in love with God. God approves the love one feels with his faith in the Unseen, without losing the free will of his mind.

427

Eat, drink and travel; anyone can do that. There will be hardships, there will be illnesses, there will be difficulties, there will be troubles and scourges and you will love God deeply just the same against all odds. That is what Almighty God loves the most.

428

People living in the swamp of unbelief are seriously polluted by that impurity. That smudge is seen on them. It reverberates on their flesh and bones, in their skin, in their gaze, in everything they have. That ruthless smudge of that merciless world contaminates them all over. When that person starts living by Islam, that smudge would leave that person gradually.

429

The more hardships suffered, the more the good deeds acquired would be. The difficulties Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) encounters are countless. Every single hardship encountered is a step ahead. For instance, think about a 1,000 kilometer-long ladder, 1,000 kilometers of ascending steps; one climbs up incessantly and the spiritual ranks he attains elevate incessantly.

430

The longer one remains in this world, the more one might have the means to improve in the spiritual sense. After one passes away, after one goes to Heaven, there would be no need for courage, loyalty and everything else. They only eat and drink and have fun, praise God and become like the angels. That is why being in this world for a long time is rewarding as well; that is because when you remain in this world, you acquire millions of good deeds.

431

Those who become victorious in their struggle against the whisperings of satan are called faithful. The whisperings of satan would be incessant, Satan would constantly pester you. Bediuzzaman says, 'Even if the armies of doubt come at one's door, verified faith would resist, but imitated faith would be defeated.' That is why we are preparing books on the facts leading to faith and make them available for you. I mean, we do that for you to be able to resist against the armies of doubt. Muslims become heroes because of their resistance and they thus become valuable in the Sight of God.

432

Muslims talk about God wherever they are. Life and religion are intertwined. One remembers God while he is having a bath, while he is eating and he talks about God wherever they are and in any event. There is not a moment, not a place in their lives that they do not remember God. One should see that he can live comfortably live with the Qur'an, read the Qur'an very easily, wherever he is. The Qur'an will be with you wherever you go, the Qur'an will be right by your side when you go to bed and you will remember God when you are in bed as well.

433

When you support the PYD, you would be supporting Öcalan and all the other communist organizations founded by Öcalan such as PJAK, the YPG, the PKK and all that. These organizations constitute a whole anyway. There are at least 20 organizations gathering around the PKK and they are all PKK militants. If you support any one of them you would be supporting the PKK. If you legalize one of them, you would be legalizing all of them.

434

The only fault of ISIS in the eyes of Europe is that they are Muslims and nothing else. I mean this reaction is not caused by their being terrorists, but by their being Muslims. That is because as we see, they are not concerned at all with the communist PKK. The PKK martyred tens of thousands of our people and they do not even care. They are trying to found a communist state in those lands and that does not concern any of them.

435

No matter how far the European Union pushes all it comes to one simple fact. Is autonomy a danger for Turkey or not? It is a danger. Thus, we won't accept it. The lofty interests of our homeland, of our people, of our country constitute our basis. The demands of the European Union are no concern of ours. Autonomy would cause disintegration in Turkey, that is an explicit fact.

436

Gentility is important. An environment in which people act crude or a banal person would be very disturbing. Vulgar people are very disturbing. Gentle people satisfy one's soul. No harm would come from a gentle person. There is even a Turkish proverb to that effect. They say; "a gentle person does not go astray, just as honey does not stink." That is a very well- known proverb. But one can expect anything from a banal person, from a crude person. They suck up to others, they manipulate others for their own interests, they behave egotistically. But a gentle, noble person would never stoop to such behaviors.

437

There is no one in the world who does not believe in the real sense of the word; that is how it is according to the Qur'an. All people, without fail, believe in their hearts but some hide their belief because of their lack of conscience. I mean they proclaim the opposite of their belief by oppressing their good conscience.

438

75 % of Afghanistan is under the control of Taliban right now. The US and Russia bombed them with all their might. Millions of people have been martyred. What happened? The Taliban is still the governing force. Their struggle lasted 15 years and 44 countries participated. NATO participated but they couldn't stop the Taliban and they cannot stop ISIS in Syria either. Things won't happen as they imagine they would.

439

An incomprehensible violence, an incomprehensible savagery has engulfed the whole world. Imam Mahdi (pbuh) has to appear. May Almighty God make Jesus Messiah appear. May He make Imam Mahdi (pbuh) appear. The time for that is approaching. They won't appear in 2015 on in 2016. But 2017, 2019 to 2021, these are sensitive dates.

440

If the world forgets about love, troubles would replace it. They should never forget this. 250,000 people have died in Syria, during the US invasion in Iraq 1.5 million people died and again in Afghanistan millions have died; what kind of a method is this? They have left millions of enraged people behind. Now all of those people side with ISIS or the Taliban. This is not an acceptable method. Results can only be attained through love, science and understanding.

441

We should have courses on national conscience in our curriculum and raise awareness in our youth in political sense. Keeping silent against the propaganda of the PKK is not acceptable.

442

People are highly comfortable; the great majority of young girls and young men are only concerned with getting married or finishing their schools. They go to play pool and watch sports matches. Some are only concerned with the football team they favor and want them to be the champion of the league. They are not even aware there is a hellish environment going on in Turkey. Their national conscience or awareness is not sufficiently strong. These youngsters should be educated.

443

The US is relying on these YPG militants in vain. They would all be massacred within a day, let me tell you that much. They would massacre all those YPG militants all through that border, from one side to the other. They are acting stupidly. The only salvation for them is to come surrender themselves to Turkey. There is no salvation for them other than that. They cannot deal with ISIS. ISIS is a system that gets stronger day by day.

444

Mao executed a million intellectuals, he executed everyone who criticized him. Some youngsters still assume that they would still have the means to write posts online here and there if a Stalinist state, a red Kurdistan, was founded in the Southeast. First of all, you wouldn't even have a computer, that regime would make you eat that computer piece by piece. You cannot enjoy contentment. You would work in a factory in the day time and have indoctrination classes in the evening, you go to bed with a whistle and wake up with a whistle.

445

My dear Kurdish brothers, the whole of Turkey is yours. Why would you want to be confined in that region? They want to crush you with a Stalinist regime, to ruin you. Pull yourself together. Why would you want to imprison yourself in the humiliating system of a Stalinist state while you do have the means to live a free, beautiful, decent life? You constrain yourself in that difficult geography. I am saying all this for some of our Kurdish people.

446

You do not ask one who is about to be killed, "Shall I save you?" If there is a murder being committed, you directly get in and save the person who is about to be killed. You break in and get in. If you go and say, "May I come in? Do I have your permission to break in? Can we discuss this?" You would lose that one in the meantime.

447

First, one party should approach things with good sense so that the other party could approach with good sense. If you act insanely, or if you act aggressively and angrily, they would act ten -fold more aggressively. However, approaching things with good sense would also draw the other side to good sense, to an reasonable logic.

448

When you do not look into things with a good conscience, you would grovel. Have a look at your life; is there a single moment night or day that you feel happy? You feel sad every single day. Every single day you get in a tizzy. Every single day you are in pain. Every single day you feel uncomfortable. I mean, does running away from Islam bring you comfort? Almighty God would spiritually chase you off where ever you run away. God crushes you everywhere you go and you would never be free of God's reach.

449

When you run away from Muslims, God would drive you away from the sea of blessings; when you come to Muslims you would be getting closer to the sea of blessings. When you look into things solely with logic, of course Satan would show everything the other way round. You would see what is right as wrong and what is wrong as right. It is not acceptable to look into things with logic; you need to look into things with your good conscience.

450

Showing love is a good deed. You acquire good deeds and a beauty of would be formed at the Sight of God. That is because you feel that love for the manifestation of God, you would be loving God. Then God would love you even more, He would expand your heart even further.

451

There is no such problem as an age difference among Muslims. There is something called mental age and if a person is wise and sensible that would be enough.

452

People who lack faith imagine that they can only be happy with people their age; for instance, that is a pagan belief, and a superstitious belief as well. They have to be with people their age, suffer through their whims, put up with their impertinence, acquiesce to their rudeness, their vulgarity, their disrespect and egoism. Are people that foolish? No one would ever come near to that. When that is the case, they are left alone and adrift.

453

I have never seen anyone happy after going astray. If that was the case, we would have said, "People going astray become happy but you should hold on to God because you will be happy in Heaven so you should not emulate them." But we see that they live a hellish life.

454

One finds peace and tranquility in Islam. Islam would bring one relief, it would provide friends and companions, wealth and riches, it would bring about plenty. You can live in peace with everyone. Unbelief, on the other hand, is like a poison, it brings about pain and suffering. One grovels in unbelief.

455

Some people imagine that they would be happy once they forget God, but that is never the case. In such a case, God bestows a thousand and one troubles upon them while they are unaware. God would constantly grip their souls and make them unable to enjoy anything. God would make their lives miserable without them sensing it. There is no such thing as being happy in forgetting God.

456

Muslims do not take dirt in. The dirt that is the hypocrite is frequently washed off and Muslims are cleansed from it. Muslims become strong and fresh as they are cleansed from them. How do people feel after a shower? They feel refreshed, immaculately clean and fragrant. That is exactly how they are after the hypocrites are washed off from among them.

457

Hypocrites are the dirt among a Muslim community. Just like Muslims get rid of the dirt on them when they bathe and become immaculately clean after that bath, they wash themselves with soap and get rid of that dirt and become squeaky-clean and healthy. And you say, “Why doesn't that dirt stick?" Muslims are clean, they do not live with dirt. They wash off the dirt and get rid of it, hypocrites are thus washed off and what remains behind are radiant Muslims.

458

The state should provide significant amounts of monetary assistance to cancer patients. The drugs used and the treatment given to such patients should be free of charge. No one should ever say, 'What is it to me, I am not the sick one, it is none of my business."

459

God is the One Who gives love. That is created as a miracle. I mean God is the One Who creates passion. There is no love and no passion in disbelief and heresy. They strive for it but it doesn't happen. No matter what they do, they cannot attain love. They try to portray that in the movies, in books but they cannot attain that in practice. Why? Because it is a miracle that comes about with faith. It is a beauty that is formed between a faithful woman and a faithful man.

460

If you abide by the Qur'an, assuming a pose would seem as a very crude, unglamorous and impertinent act. Who would be your guide if you do not abide by the Qur'an? Satan. It would make you pose, talk sarcastically and act impertinently. It would make you become ill-tempered and argumentative. It sets you at odds with the others and bring about lovelessnes, it destroys your inner energy.

461

There is music, paintings, statues and arts in the Islamic Union. Everyone will be free to wear silk, wear gold, have fun, perform their prayers five times a day, read the Qur'an, read all the books they like; everyone will enjoy the utmost freedom.

462

Some people assume that the bigotry that is going on right now will be reinforced ten-fold when Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) appears. That is not the case. The bigotry that is going on right now will be cleared out and a normal, humane life style will be embraced.

463

Our government is not an uptight government, they should follow an extroverted policy. They should embrace art and artists and aim for a cheerful, lively Turkey. They should follow a policy based on quality, beauty and aesthetics.

464

Our citizens should never have the inclination to be offended by, or upset at the state and they should be very careful about this. That is unacceptable because by doing so one would be like cutting one's own throat. The state is not an institution one could be offended by or be angry with. If there is a problem, the state should be repaired and restored.

465

Every artificial movement of the Mahdi would willingly or unwillingly serve the system of the Mahdi.

466

If you feel weary, that means your love for God is insufficient. If you do not feel weariness, that means you love God a lot. One would never feel tired of showing his love for the one he loves deeply and passionately. We are showing our love for God with our talks in these broadcasts. I also show my love for God; that is how a lover would be. If you do love, then you would do anything for the one you love. If you are not doing what should be done, that means you do not feel that love.

467

We would not kill Muslims; we do not shed Muslim blood. Those who are trying to encourage us to kill Muslims are wicked and despicable. They are characterless, inglorious. I mean, whoever attempts to encourage us by saying, "Shoot down and kill that Muslim community" are perfidious and immoral. If we are to carry out an operation, we would do so against the PKK. We do not have any intention to kill them either, we would only imprison them.

468

Bravery is a lofty characteristic and exists only for humans. This is why they become martyrs or veterans eventually. But there is no such characteristic in angels. Nothing happens to angels when there is a war. There is no such thing for them to be patient. That is why God created humans superior to angels if they are God-fearing and if they have good morality. People might manage to surpass angels many times over.

469

Respect, love, compassion and appraisal should be shown to artists. None of these are given to the artists. No artistic spirit exists in such an environment. No artists could ever produce a new work of art, none. The government should see that this would be a national disaster. People's heart's sink. Such conservatism is not acceptable. We need to rejuvenate our people with love, compassion, music, fun and art.

470

The partitioning of Turkey has no place in destiny. Had that compass turned over Turkey, Turkey would have been separated and no one could have stopped it from happening by the leave of God. But there is no such thing. Consequently the PKK is tumbling and rolling over in vain. Their ruin is in their destiny. They will be ruined, the PKK will be destroyed.

471

God tells us that there will be ordeals and pain in the world. Submit yourself to God as you should and see if you would suffer. God knows pain but He doesn't experience pain. People will know pain but they would not experience that pain if they submit themselves completely to God. One needs to find that secret, that secret of complete submission.

472

A free world, a free humanity, a free spirit would be creative; the power of understanding would develop. There will be an advancement in the arts, in the sciences in such an environment. But under a repressive state, people would be paralyzed.

473

Let there be freedom, let there be democracy. Let everyone strive for that with all their might. That is because wisdom, the arts and science develops in a free environment. Under the pressure of a state, wisdom will be atrophied. People would not have power of understanding. There would be no artists, no scientists. Industry atrophies, people lose their eagerness to work.

474

God did not create this world as place of fun. God says, "I will forget you if you forget Me." Love is what God looks for. He glares down and ruins all those who do not love Him madly, and that is it.

475

2019-2021 are the years the system of the antichrist will withdraw and collapse. But the years in between are the years of disaster. I have told the Freemasons as well, I have told them that this bloodshed would not stop, that it will continue. I would have said so if it were to stop but it will come to an end after a while. People will have to endure this, not by getting sad but by submitting themselves to God.

476

Turkey being in difficulty, the Middle East being in difficulty is a condition for the plan of the system of the Mahdi, I mean it is the requisite of destiny. All these events take place as a requirement of this plan and they will continue to take place. The partitioning of Syria, the partitioning of Iraq in the End Times are all related with the system of the Mahdi. That can be seen clearly as a light when we look at the hadiths. That is as clear as crystal, that is explicit.

477

People will understand why God has created this world. They assume that it has been created simply for them to go skiing, to go swimming in the sea, or to go have fun. That is not why the world has been created. God created this world only to select those who He loves, for them to look for ways to attain His approval. They imagine that the world is a place of fun. They don't understand it correctly.

478

The PKK is not something that would come to an end in an instant; that is because their intellectual substructure is being taught in school textbooks by the state as if it is a scientific reality. The state espouses the Darwinist-materialist system anyway. Consequently, this pest will continue to exist so long as this Darwinist-materialist education continues.

479

There is the need for this pest named the PKK, so that there will be a national awakening. No such awakening will ever take place without that pest. I mean without the Pharaoh, there would be no Moses. Without Nimrod, there would be no Abraham. Without the Antichrist, there would be no Mahdi.

480

Islam is deep faith, it is loving God a lot. Can you make people love God? No. Do you love God yourself? You don't seem to. Fearing God and loving God a lot; one needs to assure that. After that is ensured, there is nothing intricate about religion. There is no need for those know-it-all approaches, no need for such approaches that look down on people.

481

In this streaming image, in this movie, the system of the Mahdi prevails. That is the end of the movie. Jesus Messiah (pbuh) appears, Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) appears and the PKK comes to an end, communism comes to an end, Darwinism comes to an end. People are on pins and needles right now and that is necessary; but they will look and see that the system of the Mahdi became successful through fascinating ways.

482

It might seem that it is very complicated but the system of the Mahdi, the system of the Messiah cannot be disposed of underhandedly. They can neither deal with the spiritual sons of Jesus Messiah, with his students, nor with Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). That is destiny. They cannot change this image.

483

The deep state of the US is setting a trap for the PKK and they are not aware of it. Demirtaş says, "I do not think that the US will stab us in the back." They will do so, I am telling you in advance. They have done that to all of the terror organizations. They first cultivated them, used them and then throttled them. They will do the same to you as well. Do not act foolishly and back down from this in time.

484

The world stands on and lives on prayers. They would only turn the world into a living hell with brute force and killings, with acting despotically and they would attain nothing else.

485

If Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) withdraws from this world, even for a day, the Last Day will break loose; even in the space of ten minutes the Last Day will break loose. That is why the angels form an amazing block around him with an incredible fastidiousness. That is what we see in the hadiths. The Archangels Gabriel and Michael never leave his side.

486

To carry out a struggle against ISIL, they need to look into the system of the Mahdi. The solution is within it; in Jesus Messiah (pbuh) and Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). They need to pray to God for the second coming for Jesus Messiah (pbuh) and for the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).

487

Woman is a work of art. If you want to appreciate that work of art as is due, first you need to respect her, value her, protect and watch over her, you need to show courtesy, you need to be nice and decent.

488

Mourning is a custom of idolatry, a custom that was in practice in ancient Sumeria, Mesopotamia, the Hittites, in ancient Greek, in ancient Egypt. In numerous hadiths, our prophet (saas) has prohibited mourning. It is against the Qur'an. It is rebellion –may God forbid- to the blessings of God. It is not an act that befits Muslims; the meaning behind it is atrocious. There is no mourning in Islam.

489

Our Kurdish brothers are among the primary elements of Turkey. They are very dear to us with their good morality, with their personality, with their perfect characteristics.

490

The American deep state's standpoint regarding our people is really bad and very wrong. Their standpoint regarding Iraq proved to be true to a large extent; so was their standpoint regarding Syria. But we will show them that their standpoint regarding Turkey is not right. They assume that they will get by with what they are doing now and that they will easily use Turkey. That will never happen.

491

The goal of the American deep state is to grate on people's nerves and make them say, “Let them do whatever they want, as long as this bloodshed is stopped, as long as we do not have any more martyrs. Let us do whatever they say."

492

Autonomy is not a model where the PKK would be able to attain what they want. You cannot get Abdullah Öcalan out of prison. You cannot release other murderers of the PKK either. You cannot act independently. What would you say then? "Let us be a state." This is the goal of the PKK. The PKK hasn't been in those mountains for 30 years, 40 years simply to attain autonomy.

493

There is a second stage in autonomy. They are like the stairs of a ladder. The first stair is autonomy. The second stair is federation. The third stair is an independent state. That is not acceptable. The goal of the PKK is to separate us from our brothers that we have lived together with for thousands of years. We would not let that happen.

494

If a country is to be brought down, a commission consisting of spiritual notables under the leadership of Hazrat Khidr (pbuh) would decide on that. Once the decision is given, there is no way back.

495

It is crucially important to increase the number of the village rangers. That would provide a serious economic contribution to our village ranger brothers and would create an important power in the defense of our people in the region. 30,000 new village rangers should be recruited. That would militate in favor of our state and would be instrumental in the development and the mobilization of the Southeast. At least 30,000 village rangers should be recruited, we do not want any new undersea tunnels etc. These steps should be taken instead.

496

They did not have a copy of the Qur'an in any of the Masonic Lodges. I have ensured that they have a copy of the Holy Qur'an in every single one of the Masonic Lodges. God made me instrumental in this.

497

The PKK is the mentality of the Pharaoh, it is the mentality of the antichrist, it is perversion and heresy. It is a gathering of unbelievers, it is a gathering of heretics and it is a movement of the devil that aims to annihilate Muslims in masses. The necessary steps against it will be taken by the leave of God, with science and knowledge, with laws and the legal system.

498

The PKK represent a branch of the system of the antichrist in the End Times. We will chop that branch off with laws and the legal system.

499

Every dark night has a morning. When darkness envelops a place, light comes after it: That is the custom of God. The system of the Mahdi appears, after every pharaoh, after every system of the antichrist.

500

There are some young men who get into a battle of words with young girls. They try to embarrass and humiliate them. What would they gain by doing that? Lets say that you really embarrassed them, would that make you bigger? You would simply be humiliated yourself. If you humiliate a woman, you will be humiliated. That is a foolish move. You should instead present your love, your respect and your kindness.

501

The reason for separation is weakness in faith. If your love is for God, why would you ever leave? But if your love is for your own interests, who comes for interests would leave for interests.

502

Love that is not based on faith would end with separation. If it is based on faith, there will be no separation. But if it is based on self-interest, when one finds a greater interest in another person, one wouldn't show any mercy and will simply walk out.

503

Albeit a filthy one, the PKK has an ideal. They go and live in the caves up in the mountains for that ideal. Do they not know how to get married? Do they not know to get a job, a spouse or food? Yet these people live for their ideals; their ideal is a filthy and a wrong ideal, but they are killed and are willing to risk death to that end.

504

When people look at us, they mostly fixate on what is seen on the surface; the wealth, beautiful women, music and fun; that is what they see in the beginning. I mean they do not see the books, they do not see works and activities carried out. But later on, when they start looking into it, they understand that they came into something like Heaven step by step. They understand that they are approaching a spirit of meaning and their world starts to be enlightened as they approach and they advance as they are enlightened.

505

Unless the PKK is intellectually defeated, the PKK will infiltrate and hold sway in the universities and high schools step by step. The PKK's way of thinking constantly causes the faithful youth to retreat step by step. As far as I can see, the leftist ideology literally prevails in all our universities.

506

We need to raise a perfect youth that is perfectly equipped against the Marxist way of thinking, against the communist way of thinking, against the PKK; one that fully grasps the ideology of the organization, one that knows how to give a struggle against them very well, one that uses scientific evidence in doing so. Right now, our youth is adrift. Contrary to what should be done, they are given a Darwinist education.

507

The youth should be brought up as faithful, wise youngsters equipped with ideals, perfected in the spiritual sense, saved from the claws of materialism, perfectly equipped with all the knowledge regarding the belief of Creation.

508

The Bektashi Dervish Order is one full of secrets. The Naqshbandi Order is also full of secrets. In the End Times, the secrets will be revealed in stages. The seniors of the Naqshbandi Order knows the Mahdi (pbuh). They know who he is. The seniors of the Bektashi Order knows him as well. That secret has been revealed to them. They instantly understand who he is. The students of the Treatise of Light, not all of them, but rather those who have been given that secret, know who the Mahdi (pbuh) is as well.

509

Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will remove the chains on people. An intellectual, reasonable, lively and loving understanding of Islam will rule.

510

Our conservative Orthodox Muslim brothers assume that the Mahdi will come and see that the current radicalism as something very light and say, "What kind of bigotry is that? I will do a hundred times more of it." They believe that the world will be plunged into a pitch black darkness after him. The fact is however that Hazrat Mahdi will solve radicalism from the roots once and for all.

511

About one-third of Syria's land could be under the control of Bashar Al-Assad and the remaining two-thirds of it could be bound to Turkey as a federation. Turkey can be a guarantor state and the matter will then be closed once and for all. It will also be under the guarantee of NATO: Turkey is affiliated with NATO and that federation will thus be included in the lands of Turkey. The matter will all be solved.

512

Some people talk within the lines "But how are we to find the money?" about helping those who are in need. God would bring plenty in folds. The good deeds that will be attained is important, attaining the good pleasure of God is important. If you attain the good pleasure of God, He would give you riches. If you do not act in a way to attain His good pleasure and are stingy instead, God would take away everything you have and you would lose all your goods and possessions.

513

Now, what should be done in Cizre? We should make the homes of our brave people, our Kurdish brothers, our radiant brothers even beautiful than before. If they have lost their possessions and goods, we should compensate them many times over. If they do not have food to eat or for instance if they have lost their 10 kg of rice, we should take 100 kg of rice in a sack and give it to them. That would bring about plenty.

514

Let us reinforce our love and unity, we will soon see the result of it. God is watching us right now and hears all that we are talking about. He brought us together right now. God is the One Who ensures our trust, love and respect for one another. All power is with God. We pray and ask for the world to be good and beautiful and it will, insha'Allah, be like that.

515

It is very important to be decisive and persistent. I believe that these troubles, these pains will come to an end with the help of God. I see that loving, wise people are active. It is possible to persuade even the cruelest ones. If you approach them with love, if you approach them with faith in God, we will altogether see that it is possible to do that. Everything will return to its former beauty.

516

The solution to the persecution and the sufferings going on in the region cannot be found solely with diplomacy. It can be solved with love, with connection to God.

517

All the official institutions in the US have always been in the hands of Freemasons. George Washington, for instance is a grand Master. All of the presidents of the US until today were Freemasons without exception.

518

What does the PKK mean by negotiations? It is like the Treaty of Sevres. What did the men say in the Treaty of Sevres? 'Come sit at the table' and they broke Turkey into pieces. This is the same. That table is the table of the Treaty of Sevres. It is a far worse table.

519

Those who only use their logic would always grovel. But in the beginning, they appear as if they will be wining. Those who go by their conscience might appear to be losing in the beginning, but they will always win eventually.

520

Some people go by their logic instead of their good conscience. They say, 'I listen to the voice of my logic.' My brother, you would grovel if you do that. Logic might appear as if it will save people in the first sight. One might think that following logic will always give way to things that will be in his favor, that will always be at their sweet will, and that will serve their interests. Actually logic would constantly drag people into troubles.

521

In the Qur'an God says, ' ...they repudiated them wrongly and haughtily, in spite of their own certainty about them.' They resisted their good conscience. Otherwise their good conscience demands the right choice and tells them to "do". But they crush it. That is why their faces are darkened. Or else when people do not resist their good conscience, when they listen to the stirrings of their conscience, their faces will be radiant.

522

After a short while, Azerbaijan will open their doors, Armenia will open their doors, the Turkic states will open their doors. And then Iraq, Syria, Jordan, and moreover Israel. By means of Hazrat Mahdi we will live in love and brotherhood. But how long would that last? Seven to nine years and that is it. Later on an incomprehensible corruption will start, a moral corruption, up until Hijri 1545. That news will find them on a morning, or noon or night of 1545. They should write this on a stone. That stone will be torn into pieces on that day and the Last Day will come.

523

The first succesful implementation of Islamic Union is in Turkey; Kurdish, Laz, Circassian and all other ethnic groups have become brothers within that beautiful spirit of Islamic Unity. Had there been racism among them, there would be a Turkish state in the Middle Anatolia, a Kurdish state in the Southeast, a Laz state in the Black Sea region, another state on the Aegean shores and we would all be torn to pieces. These states would be torn to pieces among themselves as well. We are enjoying this unity and integrity because the morality of Islamic Unity is being practiced.

524

Our police officers are the most merciful ones in the world. Our soldiers are the most compassionate, best mannered, noblest soldiers in the world. They are young, brave, beautiful mannered Anatolians.

525

Art ennobles the human soul, it beautifies people and is the urgent nutrient of human soul. Europe has realized this and put that into practice very early on. They have attained very nice results in the end. Radicals, on the other hand, have dealt one of the biggest blows by estranging the Islamic world from the arts.

526

Hatred towards radicals is also tactless. They have been brought up like this, they are sincerely bigoted, they do not act in a bigoted manner out of spite. They believe that radicalism is how religion is put into practice the best. I mean they imagine that they are acting in line with Islam by making life miserable for themselves, by turning the world into a living hell. They have the wrong information, so you have to teach them the truth with kindness.

527

The MHP should watch over the religious communities, Muslim communities and religious orders much better. I mean the MHP should become better integrated with the people. They are left in a very narrow plain as it is. The AK Party became a great party although they started from scratch; that is because they have followed the policy of a mass party. They [the AKP] watched over religious orders and communities and they progressed immensely. If the MHP does the same, they would progress as well.

528

Annihilating Darwinism and materialism with scientific evidence would severe the main lifeblood of the PKK. Or else, so long as the system feeding the PKK sustains, no matter what you do or say wouldn't work. Blood would still be shed in streams.

529

Darwinism and materialism brings about the Marxist, Leninist, terrorist mindset.

530

The quality of the weaponry given to our police officers and soldiers should be increased and a mobilization campaign should be declared. That would completely demoralize the PKK. The number of our soldiers would then reach to four million and we can gather them in 72 hours. Look, four million soldiers would make our enemies quiver in fear. There are not that many soldiers in the Chinese Army. Such a large army would be earth-shaking. After we are done with the PKK, we can withdraw our soldiers and have them discharged. But we should do that without losing any more time.

531

If the TV channels report news about martyrs with cries and bellows, that serves the purposes of the PKK. But if we have parents proud of their sons, holding their heads high, that would cripple the PKK.

532

Many of the families in the Southeast are poor, they do not have a copy of the Qur'an in their homes; you can distribute the copies of the Qur'an in the Southeast, you can publish books explaining the invalidity of Darwinism and have them distributed. I am giving the copyright of my books, you can have them published and distributed as you like. Darwinism is the reason behind the progress of the PKK. Write to the Ministry of Education to put an end to the unilateral Darwinist education at schools, submit petitions. You do not make a peep. Instead of attacking the buses our inoffensive brothers from the Southeast are on, give an intellectual struggle against the PKK mindset.

533

If you annihilate Darwinism, the PKK will be annihilated as well. If you teach Darwinism in primary schools, in high schools day in and day out, some of the people turn out as Marxists, Leninists just like that.

534

They should quit playing the funeral march for the martyrs. That is very disturbing. It is such weird, depressing music and absolutely unnecessary. Martyrs should be sent off with salawats, by saying Allahu Akbar and should be shown round the city.

535

Kurdish people are radiant people, they are noble and decent people. If you are strong enough, go and join the armed services and struggle against the PKK. What is it that you want from our Kurdish people, you inglorious man? Kurdish people are immaculate people with superb morality.

536

When Islam prevails, one who attains a million good deeds would only attain one good deed. Someone who previously attained a million good deeds with an act, with a behavior, would only attain –let us say- five good deeds with that act when Islam prevails in the whole world. After that, because no meaning is left in life and because the trial has come to an end, the Last Day comes swiftly. The passing away of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and the prophet Jesus Messiah (pbuh) and then the Last Day will come rapidly, insha'Allah.

537

God is the One Who is Great and Exalted. Man cannot be great. Man is a piteous wretched being. What could a transient, image being be strong enough for?

538

You are an ordinary piteous servant of God. Why do you put on airs? Where you go does not honor you. What is there in those places you go? Cement, iron, bricks, stone, wood, asphalt and there are also trees. Why would you be honored because of that?

539

Humans have nothing to be arrogant about. You are a being, made up of flesh and bones and blood, you have natural needs, why is it that you put on airs? You are going to die eventually, why are you putting on an act? And life ends in a very short while. Every dead body bloats and explodes inside the grave. There is nothing for you to put on airs about; humans are piteous beings.

540

Let us spoil the plans of the PKK; I mean, let us clear away their plots to gain strength using our martyrs. For instance if you walk the martyr for hours around the city with salawats, making the place resound, that would not serve the purposes of the PKK. That is because it would create an enormous spiritual tension and everyone would side with the martyrs.

541

Especially while bidding farewell to our martyrs, displaying their families crying, throwing themselves on the coffins, bellowing, fainting is what the PKK wants. Or else, if we were to hold the funerals of our martyrs with salawats by saying Allahu Akbar, that would not serve the purposes of the PKK and would be the most galling thing of all for the PKK.

542

No one should pick on one another in such a period. Everyone should approach each other with love. National unity is very important. Pushing one another around instead of protecting and watching over one another would be a very abnormal behavior; it would be unlawful.

543

May Almighty God give strength to the families of our martyrs to appear as well mannered, brave soldier families who put their trust in God. They should strictly avoid appearing sad and sorrowful. The PKK wants these to appear in the media. That is the reason why they organize all those explosions. Or else it is not possible to subvert 80 million people with the martyrdom of 15 people. But they see it as vital for the propaganda of the organization. The cries of the families, their fainting and throwing themselves on the coffins are the propaganda materials the PKK regards as crucial.

544

It should be a crime to be a PKK supporter. I mean shouting slogans in support of the PKK, carrying the PKK rags should be a crime. Wide-scale arrests should be made. That would cripple the PKK drastically and they would thus lose all their supporters. Everything will settle down. 60,000 or 70,000 arrests could be made. Fill the prisons with them and they will then calm down.

545

Where is the verse in the Qur'an that deems music unlawful? Where is the verse in the Qur'an that deems paintings unlawful? What gave you that idea? There is no such ban in the Qur'an. Consequently, by doing so, you have created a hell for yourself. You have made lawful things unlawful and you hope that you will be given a beautiful reward in the Hereafter. May God protect you from Hell. Coming up with prohibitions in the name of God means ascribing partners to God.

546

Music is lawful by religion, paintings are lawful, having fun is lawful, sculpture is lawful. I mean, lawful things are innumerable. Things that are forbidden by religion are concisely defined in the Qur'an and they are very few. God says, 'I have deemed everything other than those lawful for you.' How do you come up with all those forbidden acts on your own?

547

Fossils are not shown to people, to the youth and children anywhere in the world. That is both weird and exemplary. Why do they avoid showing fossils persistently? Because when people look at fossils, they understand the invalidity of the theory of evolution. Actually fossils are one of the most copious commodities in the world.

548

Going by one's good conscience is difficult, but the fruit of it is beautiful. Logic, on the other hand, is easy to follow but its fruit is bitter.

549

The first affliction that comes upon a person when he does not act by his good conscience is the loss of his mind. Such a person would lose his mind. Would he be aware of his situation? No, he won't be aware: That is because he would be left to his intelligence alone, so he cannot understand his situation. His mind would be lost and he would be left to his intelligence alone. God generally does not take away one's intelligence, but He takes away his mind. Except for some rare occasions, God does not take away one's intelligence. However when God takes away one's mind, his intelligence would no longer have any use for him. His intelligence would only get him into troubles from then on. Intelligence would make him grovel.

550

Every disgusting act turns against the perpetrator of that act. Every tactic, every plot, every immoral act, every lie they come up with turns against them. Before all else, the radiance on their faces is taken and they lose their heads.

551

Watch the world carefully; you will see that 99% of the world acts by their logic. And all of them suffer. Show me one man who acts with his logic and who does not suffer in misery. They are all groveling. They live in incomprehensible pain. Sincere people who act with their good conscience on the other hand live a very beautiful life. Well, yes they do suffer through ordeals and face difficulties as well, but eventually God gives them relief.

552

The Prophet Joseph (pbuh) is an honest person through and through. He did not act with his instincts but with his good conscience. Where did his good conscience take him? To prison. He placed his trust in God and what happened eventually? Almighty God made him the Sultan of Egypt. He ate the most beautiful food, wore the most beautiful clothes and is given the most beautiful ranks in Heaven.

553

It might appear as if one would lose a lot when he goes by his good conscience. Actually, that would be the right form of behavior. For instance, prophets act in line with their good conscience and go to war, suffer through ordeals and pains. But eventually they become the best ones in the world.

554

No one would ever dare to act disdainfully in the Sight of God. They cannot respond in such a disdainful manner. God says, 'I will not let them speak in the Hereafter.' God says, 'slink away into it and do not speak to Me.' After God tells them not to speak, they cannot speak any more. Their tongues will be tied, God paralyzes their tongues.

555

Many youngsters are recruited forcefully by the PKK. These young people are actually injured parties; our state should regard these youngsters as the injured party and save them.

556

The youth of the MHP is a fervent, dynamic youth. We should bring them to their former vitality. That would be very nice and would bring relief to the hearts of our people. I mean, it would be perfect to bring forth the fervent enthusiasm of our nationalist idealist youth against that aggressive, unruly spirit of the PKK.

557

We have taken this land with blood, with the blood of hundreds of thousands of martyrs. Now this handful of impertinent scum say 'We are going to take this land.' Well, they can do that only if they martyr all 80 million of our people. Only then our homeland could be theirs. Other than that they cannot take away our land.

558

We have nothing to do with ISIS. While we still haven't solved the PKK problem, while we are giving martyrs every single day, if we go and attack someone with whom you have no issue, that would be a sin. That does not befit a Muslim.

559

When sending off a martyr they should do so with their own uniforms that they were martyred in, with their bloody uniforms without putting them into a coffin, out in the open. They should put them on a Turkish flag with their clothes drenched in blood and walk their blessed bodies around in the city, making the place resound with salawats, saying Allahu Akbar. That tension which will be formed would turn into an inconceivable power. The spiritual power it will provide would make the whole world quiver, let me tell you that much. Everyone would come to their senses.

560

May God give strength and power to our soldiers and protect them from treacherous bullets. May God give them grandeur. May He close the foresight of their enemies and put fear in their hearts. May God deem our soldiers victorious and wrap them with radiance. May God guide them all to His True path. And when they are martyred, may God bless their martyrdom.

561

It is the PKK that carries out human trafficking as well. It is the PKK that organizes everything from loading the refugees in those boats to causing their being drowned. That is not something that a normal person, a normal Muslim, would ever do. Only a psychopath could do something like that. These people engage in every kind of vileness for money.

562

Kurdish people are brave and loyal people. They are truehearted, noble and decent.

563

With the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) an incomprehensible richness comes about. The whole point is in doing what God demands. May God forbid, when people start going against what God demands, troubles start raining down upon people.

564

God wants love to be complete. Love God asks for would be formed when people love God in all those troubles, all those problems, that would be the love God asks for. That would be real love.

565

Bombing is religiously unlawful. That is because you wouldn't know who are the people below. The bombs hit everyone; children, families, women, civilians. That is a reflection of the US's cruelty on the world. It is not acceptable.

566

God shows people that all the cruelness, all this ruthlessness so that the system of the Mahdi could be appreciated. That is because before seeing that pain, people do not take refuge in the system of the Mahdi. This pain will be intensified even further, let me say that much. This will go on until people start searching for Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and pray to God for Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).

567

There are two dangers for Turkey. The first one is the danger of separation and the switch to a presidential system that will give the explicit green light to this danger of separation. That is because it would lead to federation and that is a grave danger. The second is the PKK terror. These two dangers should be removed right away.

568

They should call up at least four million soldiers to arms. Let us eradicate the PKK. Let us declare mobilization and put an end to this matter this time or else this will drag on and on. It will also be a blow to Europe and the deep state of the US and no one would ever dare to challenge us, to act with such impertinence and crassness again.

569

I personally sent copies of the Qur'an to the major Masonic Lodges in the US. And again for the very first time, we gave lectures on facts leading to faith and the miracles of the Qur'an in the greatest Lodge of the US.

570

All the riches escape with an immense speed from those who lack faith, from those who are weak in faith. The world constantly escapes from such people. They madly chase after worldly means and while they do so, a devastating pain settles in their souls. However, that is not what happens for a sincere Muslim. The worldly means and goods rain down on him. He escapes from goods and worldly goals but the world catches up with him and gushes over him.

571

It might appear as if a person loses a lot while acting in all sincerity; the fact is, however, that person gains a lot in secret. You look at that person and see that he gets into trouble and loses his goods, his means. However God eventually gives him abundance. In the meantime, the other one might think that he will attain goods and means by crushing his good conscience but the world escapes from him while he pursues worldly goals. That person would suffer enormously. That is a devastating groveling, a devastating chase.

572

There is no place for superstitions in faith. Religion is very rationalistic; the miracles of the Qur'an, presented with scientific evidence and facts leading to faith, all conform with rationality. The path of reason should be opened. The way to think rationally should be demonstrated. The beauty of thinking conscientiously and sincerely should be taught. When one thinks sincerely, he would attain faith anyway.

573

All over the world, they are suffering because of their weakness in faith, because of their lacking faith. Faith, on the other hand, beautifies wherever it reaches. Lack of faith destroys people. When there is weakness in faith, sufferings, insecurities and pain run rampant.

574

There are headlines in the media saying “The crying has resounded everywhere, families are miserable, etc." Does that suit us as Muslims? There are no such cries at the funerals of the PKK militants. On the contrary, they walk about with their heads held high, they promise revenge, they shout out slogans. Albeit unwittingly, reports about crying at the funerals serve as propaganda for the PKK.

575

A political understanding that puts trust on the masses of people with deficient knowledge would be a grave mistake. You cannot say, "They are like our voting pool, they are giving us plenty of votes anyway. They don't understand these matters; they do not know anything about Marxism, Leninism. They don't know the first thing about Darwinism. Let us not rake them up. Things are working fine as it is." That is because these people would come across with that information after a while and a recovery would be much more difficult in such sudden encounters. While we have the time, while we have the means, let us annihilate this trouble with science, knowledge, reason, information and love.

576

The mindset stating, "We do have such a ready mass anyway, let us use their votes freely, we can make due with them for a while," wouldn't work. The new generation is swiftly coming and they are enlightened and informed. If you do not educate them in terms of ideology, the youth would be left in the hands of Marxists, Leninists, Stalinists. If that is the case, you cannot get through, you would be brought down.

577

A political understanding, based on people lacking knowledge, would eventually emerge in university youth and high school students brought up with Marxist, Leninist thought. They would then be higher in number. Those who put their trust on the votes of this mass of people lacking information would be put down instantly. We need to educate those people and make them able to easily argue and intellectually defeat them, while we still have time.

578

How could you claim that there is no Darwinism if you are still taught in middle schools, high schools and universities, that -supposedly- " human beings came into being completely as a result of coincidences, that a bacteria reproduced in the muddy waters and that bacteria evolved and became a worm and then a frog. Later on the frogs turned into a primate, primates became monkeys, monkeys became humans"? This ideology will not go away by feigning ignorance.

579

Some say, "Is there still Darwinism?" The fact is however, in high schools, in the universities, they are teaching Darwinism day in and day out. They are asking about it in the tests and you cannot pass the exams if you do not say, "Yes, that is true." Since you would have to fail the class, since you will not be able to say anything to the contrary, that means the system is still working fiercely.

580

When people come across an ideology that they cannot deal with, they deny the existence of such ideology. They claim, for instance, "Where is Marxism, Leninism?" What is the name of the system the state fails to deal with then? Against what are you giving a struggle then? They are martyring police officers and soldiers every single day. Who are martyring them? Which ideology is the reason behind it? How could you feign ignorance?

581

If you do not train your youth against the Darwinist and materialist way of thinking, you will not be able to defeat the PKK ideologically or politically, you cannot defeat them in any other respect.

582

Albeit being wrong, the PKK militants have ideals. A great majority of our youth are brought up bereft of such ideals. If you do not raise up a youth much more stronger than the PKK's determination and their resoluteness, you cannot defeat them.

583

A great portion of our youth are brought up as people fond of turning the corner. All they care about is to get married, to get on with their own business, to have a good car and to live a joyous life. But in the ideology of the PKK, their youth aim to make Stalinism prevail as soon as possible, to unite the Middle East around the communist, Marxist, Leninist way of thinking, to establish a proletarian dictatorship and they go and sleep in the mountains in those caves to attain these goals. They do not even care about getting married, having this or that. Most of them are university drop outs; they leave their schooling and live a life concentrated merely on these goals. They read day in and day out and increase their knowledge.

584

You cannot blend peace, brotherhood, kindness and good morality with a Marxist, Leninist, Stalinist way of thinking. There is violence and terror in Marxist, Leninist, Stalinist thought. All kinds of treachery, plots and vileness are permissible until they attain their goals. They find it acceptable to rob banks, kill people, burn down places and commit sabotage; these are all permissible for them.

585

Everything you do will always go on track if you love God. If you do not love God, troubles would rain down upon you every single day. You cannot deal with that.

586

The whole point is to love God, to never forget love. The Beloved One would not be forgotten. You should never forget about God. When you are eating, when you are bathing, when you are sitting, when you are standing up, when you are in the streets, even when you are angry; the heart of a Muslim would always be full of love for God.

587

It has nothing to do with showing a lot of effort. The whole point is to love God sincerely; to love God with a deep, profound love. If you love God, you are strong. I mean if you love God a lot, you would definitely be victorious. Look I am not saying that “if you believe in God”, I am saying “if you love God”. Actually to feel love, you have to believe in Him.

588

Although the PKK has an ideology, the state does not stand against them with a counter -ideology: That is the reason why the PKK still remains active. They can only be defeated by Turkey giving an anti-Darwinist, anti-Stalinist education and by explaining the invalidity of the PKK's ideology with scientific proof.

589

Marxism is a science, but it is a false science. It is also a twisted faith. You need to respond to this twisted understanding of science with real science. If you do not respond as such, you would be defeated; if you are afraid, you would be defeated.

590

Artists are people of love. People of love live on love. Artists would die if you do not show love to them. They won't be able to perform art either. You need to applaud them, encourage them, compliment them, award them and blandish them. They need to know that they are loved to feel exuberant.

591

The PKK is very dangerous because their goal is to found a state in the southeast of Turkey and to disrupt the Islamic Union. They have their sights trained on founding a Stalinist state and then taking on the whole of Turkey and annihilating the Islamic Union. That is something even further than making an attempt on our lives.

592

They can never stop ISIS. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is the one who will stop them. No one else other than Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) could ever stop them.

593

The presidential system equals federalism. Why have our soldiers been martyred? They've been martyred just so that there will be no federalism, that there will be no separation for Turkey. And you now say, "Let us switch to a presidential system and make our country the United States of Turkey." Why have we given ten thousands of martyrs then? That would not be fitting, either to our martyrs and to the respect for the Turkish Nation.

594

When Almighty God gives one love and depth, if He gives him faith, the aether material enters into his service by the leave of God. Aether material is a watery material that the infinite Wisdom of God is nested in. We are swimming inside that right now.

595

Heaven is an art gallery. God is the greatest Artist. God furnishes everywhere with works of art in Heaven. Why? For us to live love. Art equals love, love equals art.

596

There is a Stalinist, communist uprising and these people are determined to establish a communist state in the region. Let us deal a blow to their ideology. Darwinism should be taught in schools, but the comprehensive scientific response should be given as well. Communism should be taught, but its invalidity should be taught as well. We can only attain results if we respond with knowledge and information.

597

In cases of terrorist attacks soldiers, police officers and citizens should by no means be held responsible for their acts in self defense. It is urgent to formalize this with laws.

598

Fervent love to twelve imams is nice. Some people only talk about twelve imams very rarely. That is not something pleasant, they will not be able to make use of their benediction. Those who do not love the twelve imams do not love our Prophet (saas), either: Those who do not love Hazrat Ali (ra) do not love our Prophet (saas), either.

599

Alawites are perfect people. The Alawite way of thinking is a very, very beautiful way of thinking. Their love is beautiful, their profundity is beautiful. Our Alawite brothers are architects of love. But real Alawites; those who attained the secret of meaning, who are wise, who attained depth. Other ones are still on the road, insha'Allah.

600

The struggle against the PKK is carried out for the defense of our homeland and our people. We are giving a struggle for our existence and avoiding annihilation. Our soldiers should do whatever must be done. This is a religious obligation. It is unlawful to avoid struggling against the PKK. All sorts of studies that could be done in the struggle against the PKK are religiously lawful.

601

The PKK is like a flock of wild animals, they distress people, they make them uncomfortable. They attack their stores. They vandalize their furniture, their belongings. The state should take the necessary actions instantly. They should immediately call up two million reserve soldiers. If it is not enough, another two million should be recalled. That would make four million. We already have 600,000 soldiers on active duty; that would make us the greatest army of the world. They should all be given automatic weapons to form a deterrent power. They would then shut the place down.

602

I love every Muslim because they say, "La Ilaha Illa Allah Muhammad Ar-Rasul Allah." If they have a fault, I correct them by talking to them, not by bombing them, not by killing them. Was our Prophet (saas) preaching the message of God in Sud'Ukaz (the Market of Ukaz) by killing them? He was talking to them one by one. There were hypocrites, Buddhists, unbelievers, Masons around and he used to talk to every one of them.

603

The majority of the arrested PKK militants are released shortly after. Urgent arrangements should be made in the justice system regarding this and the punishments should be increased.

604

The forty year life of the antichrist is over. It is a religious obligation to annihilate the PKK. That means it is necessary for every Muslim to struggle against them. Anything to the contrary is religiously unlawful. The necessary actions will be taken. The PKK will be annihilated with laws and the legal system.

605

The corrupted ones in the deep state have crushed our Kurdish people intensely, they have ruined them. They literally made them go insane. They made them say “We will break away, we will leave. Enough is enough." As a matter of fact, that was the goal of the deep state anyway, to make them break away and leave. To found a communist state and ruin the Kurdish people. And they are deceived by that. They should actually act in a way that is the exact opposite of what the deep state demands.

606

Kurdish people are radiant. Many of the mujtahids, mujaddids of the End Times are all Kurdish. Kurdish people are religious, decent, honest, brave, chivalrous, immaculate people. They have all the characteristics of Muslims and that is why I love them all very dearly. I am hostile to the PKK. Kurdish people are my friends. The PKK is perfidious, whereas Kurdish people are radiant.

607

Changes should be made in the anti-terror law; there should be no penal sanctions in case our citizens defend themselves against the PKK.

608

When thought about sincerely, it will be seen that the HDP is a virtual party. It is not a settled political party with an actual base of voters. It is merely a party pulling in votes with the threat of the PKK, standing afoot with the threat of the PKK. Without the threat of the PKK, there would be no party such as the HDP.

609

The US has always supported communist terror organizations everywhere in the world in the beginning and then slaughtered them tragically. And they did this to every single one of them, without exception. They will do the same to the PKK as well.

610

We cannot search for all those acts that are lawful in the Qur'an. Only the unlawful acts can be searched for in the Qur'an. That is because the number of unlawful acts is very few. When there is a proof in the Qur'an for something being unlawful, there is nothing further to discuss . But if there is no command in the Qur'an proving that something is unlawful, nothing can be banned based on superstitions.

611

Crying for a martyr is not compatible with an Islamic upbringing. Our Prophet (saas) has prohibited it. Crying, mourning is found in all the pagan customs of the ancient Sumerians, the Akkadians, the Hittites, ancient Egypt, ancient Greece. They lament, they cry. But in Islam being a veteran, being a martyr is an honor.

612

How could it be acceptable to cry after a martyr? It is a great honor, why are you not delighted? What is the reason for your being in this world? Isn't Heaven, the good pleasure of God, His blessing your goal? The martyr instantly passes to Heaven, what else do you want?

613

There is a spiritual void. We need to educate our people. Or else you build bridges and they simply lay hold of them and they become the bridges of the PKK. They go and name it the 'Stalin Bridge'. They change the name 'Ataturk' to 'Lenin' on every building. You make a great effort to build them and they simply confiscate them. That is why spirituality comes first; faith comes first.

614

They have raised heaven and earth during the Gezi Park incidents just because a few trees were cut down. The PKK is martyring our young saplings, our lions, every single day and these people don't even care. They do not even deal with it. They don't make even a peep for our martyrs.

615

There is a terrifying impassiveness in some young girls and young men. They are all about their apparel, their fun, their pleasure and razzle-dazzle. They just concentrate on going to a good school, having a good business, getting on the gravy train, getting married, getting ahead of their friends. Their mind is solely occupied with these. On the other hand, our homeland is in danger, our flag is in danger, our religion is in danger and these people do not even see the danger. They simply say 'So long as it is not at my door'. But if you go on like this, it will probably be at your door soon, today or the day after; you need to understand this.

616

Those girls in the PKK are lying on the rocks in the mountains for their void, superstitious causes. Some of our young girls are acting as if they are 'Snow White'. They only are interested in getting married, in being rich. They just concentrate on finding a suitable groom for themselves. Have a look at the ideological determination of the PKK and then at the impassiveness and the worldly ambitions of some of our people. That is not the way to go. There is a need for the spirit of a man of cause, a national conscious.

617

Those soldiers are blessed with the rank of martyrdom and you feel yourself distressed and pained, how is that possible? What does being a soldier mean? It means learning the art of dying and killing for the good pleasure of God, for our homeland. God is the One Who gives life and He is the One Who makes them become martyrs. What more do you ask for? Martyrdom is the highest rank for a soldier.

618

The body of the martyr should be shown all around the city. The funerals of martyrs are important. The invocations saying "Allahu Akbar" should resound in the city. At least a million people should gather. Then the national conscious would spurred. The whole country would benefit from the spirituality of the martyr.

619

God says 'Be'. And it happens. The word 'be' becomes alive. That word becomes alive. And everything it touches does whatever is needed to be done. That also consists of aether material. That word is energy. Every word is energy. God's wisdom is in that energy.

620

Right now we are swimming in that aether material. Aether is a material that holds the wisdom of God. It enters and exists everywhere. It is inside the staff of the Prophet Moses (pbuh), inside the veins of the bushes, inside the burning flames.

621

The aether material used by God is all-pervading. It consists of conscious, pure consciousness. What they call energy is actually pure consciousness. The infinite wisdom of God moves inside that.

622

The people of Heaven, those created for Heaven are conscious, sentient people, those who are created for Hell, the people of Hell on the other hand, are in oblivion.

623

It is the arrests that would cripple the PKK the most. They will be over once we arrest five thousand, ten thousand people. That would cripple the organization.

624

It is very important to recruit new soldiers and increase the number of our soldiers. If we recruit two million soldiers, that would be an amazing deterrent. Having large numbers of soldiers and tanks will completely demoralize the PKK.

625

“Shia” means follower. They are the Shias of Hazrat Ali (ra), they are his followers and at the same time all Shias are the Shias of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), followers of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). When Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh)'s name is mentioned, they almost go mad with love. Shias' personality, their understanding of love, is very nice in that respect, their loyalty is perfect. That is why God gives them strength and power.

626

Our Prophet (saas) stated that the Star of Bethlehem will appear at the time of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). The Star of Bethlehem appeared recently. It appears once every 2,000 years; it appeared at the birth of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and once at the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).

627

Easing religion is the responsibility of the Mahdi. Right now, they have made it heavier and made it unbearable for people. They have ruined religion. The Mahdi will take off those loads weighing tons and make religion easy and light; religion will be made suitable to human nature. He will make people turn towards true religion.

628

We are rapidly heading towards a period that brings peace, happiness and beauty, one in which bloodshed is ended. After a short while, not even a drop of blood would be shed, not even the noses of people would bleed. They will see this. Our Kurdish brothers should be patient for a little longer.

629

Our Kurdish brothers are such immaculate and blessed people; they are honorable, proud people. The PKK, on the other hand, is perfidious and vicious. They are debasing our Kurdish people. Forcefully taking their money, taking their children away under coercion, barging into their homes by force, breaking their windows and shooting them inside their homes. We need to stake our claim on our Kurdish brothers and prioritize them in everything.

630

The word "process" is used as a veil to cover the danger. When that is the case, people do not develop an ambition to save the Southeast. They do not have an ambition to save their nation, their religion. The word "process" is merely rhetoric used to deceive our people. I consider all those who use the word with good intentions free of this, but the "process" is merely an attempt to lull or pacify our people and veil the danger that is right before them.

631

If our youth receive education 30 hours a week, or at least 25 hours of them are on Darwinism and on the one remaining hour, you say, "I will teach you about Islam" you would thus be surrendering to the antichrist without even being aware.

632

When courses on national conscience take their place in the curriculum, youngsters will become keen and active. Instead they now go and play dice, etc. Most are only concerned about where they can get their next fix of drugs or of whatever they engage themselves with. That is what happens when a person does not have a cause to fight for. Why don't the PKK terrorists use drugs? Because they do have a cause to fight for, albeit an evil, atrocious, immoral one. Our youngsters too should have a goal to fight for.

633

Martyrs should not be washed, they should be buried with the uniforms they wore. Not even the slightest sign of sadness should be displayed. That is because martyrdom is a rank praised by God.

634

The PKK is constantly taking up arms in the Southeast. There is no such thing to be called a "process”. What the PKK understood from the concept of this process was to have the Southeast delivered to the PKK, to have Abdullah Öcalan released and for him to be assigned as the president of that region.

635

Female PKK militants are lying among the rocks. On the other hand, a great majority of our young girls are only trained in matters such as what kind of a spouse they should be choosing, who would they be marrying, what kind of a job should they be choosing, how would they attain their personal interests. They need to be given courses on national conscience.

636

Causing the slaughter of Muslims is exactly like actually slaughtering them. The reward of it in the Hereafter would be eternal Hell. If they are somehow mistaken, you correct them with science and knowledge.

637

Iran is our friend and ally. We need to love Iran. Animosity against Iran is not right. We need to be friends with Iran. Shias are very immaculate, devout people. They are Godfearing. Animosity against Shias is atrocious.

638

If they were to throw down books on the PKK, it would be an incredible shock for them. If they were told about the invalidity of Darwinism, materialism, if books were distributed to people with trucks, with helicopters and planes, if they were told about the falsity of the PKK’s ideology, the Earth would move. The plots of the deep states of the US and the UK would be disrupted. That would raise a stink worldwide.

639

The youth of the PKK is given an amazing political training and an astounding military training. But our youth is not given such an education. Our youth is not given such political consciousness- raising. They do not receive such military training in that sense either. That is why they are able to challenge great Turkey with a handful of scum. America also supports them covertly.

640

God has sent ISIS as a scourge to the PKK. It is a scourge on them in response to their unruliness. But of course, we always want everything to be solved with ideas and science.

641

The body would never want death and fading away. The cells do not want it. That is something that gives the sharpest pain to one. God takes away this pain with Islam.

642

Those who do not have faith in the Hereafter would be distressed; their faces, their souls would be darkened. But those with faith in the Hereafter would feel as if they have been given a great glad tiding in their souls, telling them that they will live eternally. Their hearts would then feel relieved.

643

In regard to the future, the Hereafter is the only goal for Muslim. The Hereafter is the joy and reward of a Muslim. A Muslim always hopes for Heaven. A Muslim fears going to Hell but always think about Heaven and concentrates on Heaven.

644

The PKK is the greatest threat both to our borders and in Turkey. They have invaded our Southeast region and gained dominance there and our borders have also been invaded from end to end.

645

Muslims are charged with saving Muslims. You cannot discard them saying that they are terrorists. You cannot discard them saying they engage in violence. They can be Muslims but they can also be at fault, they can be mistaken. You correct their mistakes, their faulty ways.

646

I would not want anyone to die. Even if he is a terrorist, I wouldn't want him dead. But we should drain their swamp. We need to blow up their roads, their bridges and wreck their caves so that they can more easily surrender. For instance, blowing up their ammunition warehouses is acceptable. They would not be able to behave in such an unruly manner.

647

Crying is not acceptable for us. We did not cry in Çanakkale. We did not cry in Dumlupınar. We did not cry in Malazgirt. Why would we cry? As a nation who desires martyrdom, as a nation who regards martyrdom as an honor, why would we cry for martyrs?

648

I would never discard any Muslim community as a whole. No matter what kind of a sin they committed, they are Muslims in any case. We are to love Muslims. They might make mistakes, they might have flaws, we are to simply correct their ways. We are to talk to them and tell them the falsity of their ways.

649

Moschiach, Mahdi is awaited in the whole world; he is expected as the one who will disentangle the Masonic knot.

650

There is also another power higher than the Illuminati. They are the ones drawing the form the world should take with a compass and a protractor.

651

It is the deep state of the world that decides if Syria is to be demolished and torn to pieces and the issue is endorsed by the American deep state. They are the ones selected to carry out the task. They take on the task and put it into practice.

652

There is a deep global state known as the Illuminati, consisting of 200 to 300 people. They are the ones making decisions on wars; matters such as stopping wars, which countries to bring devastation upon, which countries will be victorious, are all decided by them. If a new country is to be founded, they are the ones to decide that as well.

653

It seems as if the deep states of the related countries are the ones that made the decision to stir up trouble and declare war in a country but the deep states of those respective countries are actually mere instruments. It is the global deep that gives the order. The American deep state is not a serious force in this respect either. They are merely obeying orders.

654

America believes that we have to suffer through very formidable and bloody days for the second coming of Jesus Messiah. That is why they are turning the world into a sea of blood for Jesus to appear and for the Last Day to become imminent. That is a big mistake.

655

If we declare mobilization, that would make the PKK incredibly afraid. If we enlist one million soldiers, we would have one million 600 thousand soldiers with our 600 thousand currently active soldiers on duty. That would constitute an amazingly intimidating force.

656

It would be an enormous spiritual motivation for our people if they photographed and published the aftermath of the attacks against the PKK. That would also wreck the PKK in terms of morality.

657

If you give a Darwinist education night and day, communism would of course keep snowballing. You are thus adding fuel to the flames. Darwinism is the fuel of those flames. If you teach your youth the primary philosophy of communism in your middle schools, high schools and universities, if you tell them that their ancestors are microbes formed in swamps, they would of course become communists eventually.

658

In regards to deterrence, our police and soldiers should have more powerful weapons. Having long lasting armed conflicts should be out of question. If they know that we do have such state of the art weapons, they wouldn't even be able to come near. But if they know that we have only outdated weapons, they would dare to attack.

659

The only thing God asks us is to be loved. God says, “Love Me deeply. Feel a great affection for Me, so that I will give you all kinds of blessings and make you happy. And that would make Me pleased in return."

660

The 55th verse of Surat An-Nur refers to the global sovereignty of the moral values of the Qur'an. The whole of Surat Al-Kahf depicts the system of the Mahdi. Surah Yusuf and the story of the Prophet Solomon (pbuh) is almost a summary of the system of the Mahdi.

661

It is a grave viciousness for the US to deliver weapons to the PYD-PKK. They should leave aside this insanity; they are acting unhinged. These people, the PKK, are communists, Stalinists while you are anti-communist. Why did you wage war in Vietnam, in Korea then? Why did you give such a struggle in Cambodia and Laos? If communism is that good, why have you been waging war against it all those years? They are acting really irrationally.

662

Some people keep asking, "Why didn't the moral values of Islam prevail?" You are presenting a hellish life to people in the name of Islam. The fact is that Islam means love, beauty, joy, happiness, pleasantness, honesty and cleanliness. So what are you doing? You are merely presenting them a hellish life. You forbade everything and you do that claiming that you are acting in the name of God. Do those limits you force onto people have any place in the Qur'an? No, they don't. You are simply cooking all those up yourself.

663

It is not a skill to turn religion into something inextricable. This bigoted mentality is what makes these people, the great portion of Muslims, irreligious.

664

They are trying to alienate people from religion. For instance they say, 'There is no music in religion.' People then take a dislike towards religion. What else? They say, 'There are no paintings in religion.' Laughing? They claim that it is unlawful as well. Well then my brother, are you trying to make people insane? According to their twisted minds, young girls are unable to put on makeup, they are unable to be sleek. Set them free, let them have fun and be beautiful. Instead, they are presenting a hellish life in the name of religion.

665

This huge world is big enough for everyone. Why is there the need for all this rampaging, all this lovelessness? Why do you allocate your time for hatred? Devote your time to love and have peace of mind. Why do you distress yourself?

666

If people act sincerely and look for love, God turns the world into heaven on earth.

667

Almighty God says that His sincere servants will be saved. God attaches great importance to sincerity. When we see insincerity, we feel a sense of repulsion. We dislike it, we find it cold and evil. Sincerity, on the other hand, makes us feel relieved and comfortable.

668

Sincerity is an immense comfort. Sincerity makes one beautiful. Those who are sincere know what love is. Those who are not sincere are crooks; they are evil.

669

The best course of action is to be forgiving, to act as people of peace, to see goodness in everything. People are created as weak, they are not strong enough to deal with troubles. Feeling rage towards one, messing with another person, screaming at them, conspiring against another: All you have is a small, weak body. How can your weak body deal with all that pain, with all that filth? Be honest, sincere and immaculate.

670

Sincere people are beautiful; crooked people on the other hand are really ugly. People find ease and comfort in honesty. Lies distress people, make them feel suffocated. People are created weak anyway. It becomes devastating when all those negative things are loaded upon one and it deranges one's mind and [damages their] health.

671

Having a glorious, scary army is the Sunnah of our Prophet (saas). For instance, he didn't let the soldiers cut their mustaches short; they even grew their nails. The Companions of our Prophet (saas) had such a ravenous and scary appearance. They had handlebar moustaches reaching till the ends of their ears. Those who looked at them were shivering with fear, they feared them greatly. It would be great if our soldiers had such a staggering appearance. Especially regarding the PKK; our soldiers should be their nightmare.

672

The PKK is a whip God uses for Islam to prevail, for pushing Muslims. Muslims were asleep, so God awakens Muslims with such trouble, with such a corruption. This feeling of honor is one of the means that wonderfully exalts spirituality. When there is a Pharaoh, there is a Moses. These are the Pharaohs of this age.

673

The government should press the issue of Darwinism. Darwinism is a system that directly denies God: The whole world denies God in schools. This is the promised antichrist; Darwin is an antichrist. He is the person who developed the idea of denying God. Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Hitler and Mussolini all derived their ideologies from that philosophy. The antichrist has a committee and those committees have sub-committees. The PKK is a structure that has ideological connections to those committees.

674

Weakness of faith is the greatest illness in the world. It is what lies at the root of all the pains suffered, all the ordeals and diseases. It is what lies at the root of all troubles, hunger and economic crises going on in this world. God turns this world into Heaven for those with strong faith.

675

We like hardships as well. We do not like a plain, monotonous life either. For instance, if a person we love suffers through ordeals and meets challenges for us, we love them even more. Self-seeking love has no meaning.

676

Almighty God created this world metaphysically. He doesn't like a plain life. He wants life to be vigorous, full of wars, heroism and bravery. As a result of all those hardships, Islam prevails in the world. God likes this.

677

Unless the PKK comes to faith, they would never be saved from their troubles. They are evidently the army of the antichrist. And they will be drowned in the sea of troubles just like the army of the Pharaoh. They should pull themselves together. They should start believing and save themselves. They will save themselves if they say, "La ilaha Illa Allah Muhammed Ar-Rasul Allah." They should pull themselves out of this sea of filth.

678

At the time of the Mahdi (pbuh), God's Name Al-Hadi (The Guide) prevails in the world. As Mahdi (pbuh) passes away, God's name "Al-Hadi" will be withdrawn from the world and His Name that causes people go astray will start to manifest itself. Jesus Messiah will live for a short period of time in this world anyway and after he passes away, people will go crazy. The world will turn into a living hell.

679

A gloom pervades the whole world after Mahdi (pbuh) passes away. Everyone would try to preserve their faith, but faith would constantly regress. God's Name that causes people to go astray will then prevail in the world after that.

680

The separation of our country has no place in destiny but in order to awaken the ummah, there is a need for the antichrist. The antichrist crows like a rooster and awakens people. Or else people would continue to sleep. Without the antichrist, people would not take action. Once it fulfills its duty, all of them would disappear.

681

What is a prayer? It is love and respect. If you show love and respect, in response to your love and respect, God creates a beauty for you as a gesture. These are mutual demonstrations of love.

682

God says 'You are to love for Me, you are to love Me. You are to love Me to death.' And so we love our Lord to death. God wants to be loved purely and wholeheartedly. God is entitled to such love.

683

God doesn't want to be loved ordinarily, He doesn't want a monotonous love either. No one would want such a love. What good would a monotonous, plain love do? You give money and in return she loves you. She loves you because of your profession. She loves you because of her own interests. There is no such love.

684

God wants an insanely deep love. God is very meticulous about love. In God, there is a complete manifestation of a lover. He ruins those who betray His love but He loves those who respond to His love with love for all eternity.

685

God does not want us to be alone. God wants us to be in love with Him. He loves loving, He loves to be loved, He loves beauty.

686

What the US wants is to open up some land for the PKK. I mean they are trying to vacate ISIL from the region and have the PKK settled there so that they can found a state there. Everyone should see this plot.

687

Let us please put aside the habit of crying at the funerals of martyrs. It is not in compliance with the Qur'an, it is not in compliance with our customs; there is no such habit in the morality of Islam. That is a custom observed since the ancient Sumerians. It is not appropriate to cry after those who have gone to Heaven.

688

What they mean by "Solution Process" is the PKK founding a state there and making Abdullah Öcalan the president of that state; it is snatching up that region from Turkey and settling in a Stalinist, communist, predatory, red regime in that region: This is what they mean by the “solution process”.

689

It is a religious obligation on Muslims to annihilate the PKK with laws and the legal system. It is religiously unlawful to refrain from struggling against the PKK.

690

Laying down weapons is something the PKK would never accept. First of all that is against Marxist, communist, Stalinist principles. These people have been trained as communists, Stalinists. Stalinism is reliant upon weapons. Why should they lay down their weapons? Would they ever leave their weapons simply because you asked them to do so? That can only be possible with education. You can only do that if you stop this Darwinist, materialist education system and teach creation and the existence and oneness of God.

691

Muslims are inoffensive people. It is not at all rational for them to be at each other's throat. You've been oppressed by everyone anyway, you've been exiled, you've been devastated. Why is there the need for you to oppress one another? These are all foolish acts. Wherever we go, we see that they are in a wretched state. We look at Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen; they are all very poor and miserable. Why is there the need for such conflicts? Unite and be brothers. Live a beautiful, humble, rich, healthy, pleasant life.

692

Sunnis, Shias, Wahhabis; these are all equal to one another, they are all the same. They are all brothers. Getting into a struggle against one another is impertinence. They should strive for Islamic Union. Try to unite all Muslims and make an effort for this. Tell people about the necessity of the Islamic Union.

693

Islamic Union means love of God. It is the name of love for God. If they do not want Islamic Union, then troubles would continue to rain down on them and no one could stop them up until the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).

694

Right now, the terrorists have incomprehensive advantages because they disregard the laws. We, on the other hand, abide by the laws. We have to follow the law to the letter. The laws should be made to be in favor of our citizens in all regards.

695

In the struggle against the PKK, we need to follow the policy that states "the enemy of my enemy is my friend." I mean the state should follow this policy no matter what.

696

ISIS has some mistakes and deficiencies: They do not abide by the Qur'an. They make additions to the commands of the Qur'an from Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmidhi. Just like many other conservative Orthodox Muslims, just like Shias, Sunnis, Wahhabis, they are making additions; and that is what happens when you make additions. Violence and terror comes about. I am against violence. We know from the hadiths that this will all be put right when Mahdi (pbuh) comes.

697

I do not accept the violence inflicted neither by ISIS, nor by the PKK or indeed any other terror organization. We want love, peace and reason to prevail instead of violence; we want everything to be solved with facts leading to faith, with the miracles of the Qur'an and with the understanding of deep love as described in the Qur'an.

698

No Kurdish person in his right mind would ever want a Kurdistan fragmented from Turkey. Someone living in Mardin might feel like going to İzmir and can get on a bus to go there; he feels like going to İstanbul and he can do so. Why should that person need a passport, or a visa to go there? Why should there be the need for that? Why are you imprisoning them in those highlands to be slaves there to a communist government, to a communist state, to a communist dictatorship espousing violence and terror: No sane Kurdish person would ever want that.

699

First you need to explain the falsity of communism, Marxism, Darwinism, materialism, Godlessness, Booklessness. First you need to conquer them ideologically. Later on they can lay down weapons, stop acting abnormally and leave their idiocy.

700

Almighty God could have created us like robots, but He doesn't like that. God is pleased with humans more because they are able to think freely. That is because humans know both cruelty and goodness. But angels are unable to act cruelly, they do not have such an ability.

701

God says that the majority of people will not believe and those who do not are not alive. He says that they are dead, not alive. If one takes unbelievers as the basis for his conduct, he would be abiding those who are not alive, he would be influenced by those who are dead. That would mean that he is influenced by those in the grave. That would be a colossal mistake. One should never take unbelievers as basis. One should have a direct and pure faith.

702

The fact there are a lot of people who remain aloof from religion is what deceives people and is what constitutes an excuse for them. First of all, one needs to ignore them completely. One needs to look at the direct evidence of God's existence and be in direct contact with God.

703

God regards martyrdom as the highest form of love. That is what God likes the most. But of course the most acceptable martyrdom is attained while one is actually striving on the path of God. That is because such a person goes to war openly knowing that it is possible that he will be killed and will be martyred there. Going on a struggle on the path of God, without feeling fear, is what is most acceptable.

704

Why would the PKK lay down weapons? It would have been good if they had of course, but they would never do so. All their executives are insistently declaring that. That is because the HDP would disappear and then so would the PKK. A terror organization would never renounce terror unless they reach their goal.

705

PYD, YPG, YPJ, PJAK; all these are the same with the PKK. Changing names is merely a vicious ploy.

706

The Solution Process is a means for stalling the Turkish Nation. It is a psychological action done to distract our attention, to demotivate and dishearten us, to remove the reflex of defense.

707

If you believe in Islam and the Qur'an, unbelief would certainly be defeated. God states in the Qur'an that unbelief would certainly be defeated. Lenin was defeated, Marx was defeated. Darwin was defeated; they all have been defeated. The PKK will be defeated as well.

708

At least about 10,000 arrests should be done against the PKK, for everything to cool down. And those arrested should not be released. They should widen the scope of the related articles of the law. The characteristic of the crime is truly perilous; they intend to subvert the Turkish state, martyr our police officers and our soldiers. All these are crimes that require life imprisonment. They would quail once they see this. They would not come to their senses any other way.

709

If they succeed in collapsing the Darwinist/ materialist system, that would be the greatest victory of Turkey; it would be a worldwide victory. That is because Darwinism- may God forbid- is an ideology challenging God. There has never been such a colossal system of idolatry denying God in the history of the world. There is nothing similar to that in the ten thousand year history of the world.

710

Martyrs should not be washed. Martyrs are to be buried with their blood, in their uniforms. They are buried not with bands playing, but with takbirs, with salawats.

711

First of all, in terms of morality, girls should be claimed and looked after everywhere; they should be loved everywhere. A weird ferocity is going on all around. Their happiness means the happiness of the world. Their being loved means the world being loved. Without them being happy, the world would not be happy either.

712

All problems should be solved with knowledge, science and love. Neither ISIS nor the PKK need bombing; they need science and knowledge. We do not need a single drop of blood. We do not want to awaken a sleeper. We do not want anyone even to have a bleeding nose.

713

Those who claim that Mahdi will not come are unaware of the fact that they are simply preparing the foundation for the appearance of the Mahdi.

714

Unbelief, rebellion and heresy are disorders that should be wiped off the face of this world. God has clearly commanded in the Qur'an "...fight against them until there is no more oppression and all worship is devoted to God alone." God says that unbelief can never be successful. He says, "I will annihilate unbelief, you should only hold on to reason."

715

It is a religious obligation to devastate the PKK; using laws and the legal system they should all be caught and put into prison.

716

We need to raise a faithful youth with a national conscience by carrying out Qur'anic studies and teaching facts leading to faith. We need to raise conscientious youngsters who espouse national sentiments and national consciousness. There might be a course on "national consciousness" in the curriculum and the invalidity of Darwinism and communism can be taught in those lessons.

717

If the state keeps teaching Darwinism night and day in the middle schools, high schools and universities, if they instill the falsehood claiming "you have come into existence by means of coincidences from muddy waters, your forefathers are microbes, those microbes have turned into worms, those worms have turned into frogs, those frogs have turned into primates, those primates have turned into monkeys and eventually monkeys have turned into humans," of course the world would be filled with communists and you cannot deal with them.

718

We do not want Incirlik base to be used against ISIS. The US is openly supporting the PKK and because they believe that ISIS will interfere with the PKK, they want ISIS out of that region and have the PKK settled in the area. They want to use the Turkish air bases to that end; they want to use them to commit these murders. Turkey cannot be a part of this scourge, she cannot participate in this horrible act. Throwing her weight about it, Turkey should refuse to take part in this ignominy no matter what.

719

Shaking off the PKK can only be possible with the system of the Mahdi. Shaking off the radical organizations in the region can only be possible with the system of the Mahdi. That is because all of them originate from an ideology: Consequently, all of them can be put right with ideas. Right now the supreme, the highest, most undefeatable, the most invincible idea is the system of the Mahdi.

720

We all know that ISIS has some erroneous aspects. However they are under the influence of traditional books and works. Their wrongs can very well be righted with education. Everyone sees that they are on the wrong path. Actually even the PKK could be made right with education, both of them could be put right with education.

721

It is religiously unlawful for Muslims to slaughter Muslims. While there is a threat as the PKK for us, it is not possible to have a concern that could be called the threat of ISIS. We need to focus all our attention on the PKK. We would not come to blows with ISIS, who does not touch Turkey simply because the deep state of the US demands that we do so.

722

God wants to be loved at the cost of one's life. That is why God loves martyrs. That is because God is the One Who gives that life. That is exactly the characteristic of a lover. But when He is not loved, God takes revenge. He says, "I create horror and I do not fear the horror that takes place. Love Me and I will love you." That is such a beautiful offer, such a beautiful response.

723

God is a Lover, He loves love. He avenges when He doesn't find love. God doesn't want betrayal of His love. That is also embedded in the human soul. God says, "I want love. I want you to love Me madly. I will love you and you are to love Me. But if you do not, I will hurt you like every lover." God also takes revenge. That suits God, it suits His beauty.

724

ISIS is a heavenly disaster cast upon the PKK by God. He created them as a scourge on the PKK. Such scourges were cast upon the people of Ad and Thamud as well, upon those unruly, Godless, Bookless people. God has sent such a flood upon these ignoble persecutors, such a flood of disasters.

725

Both Muslims (people symbolized with the crescent) and Christians (people symbolized with the cross) love God and strive to be the servants of God, they are not brawling. Why should they have? Crescent and cross will ally with each other in the End Times and make Islam prevail in the world.

726

The deep state of the US, in their own minds, wants to force Turkey into a war with ISIS. They imagine that we will shed Muslim blood. No such thing will happen, the US should forget about this.

727

Using the excuse of ISIS, they want to attack bearded Muslims, Muslims covering their heads, those who perform prayers; they want to attack mosques. They are instigating our people, they are inciting the Turkish nation. They say, "He might be from ISIS if he has a beard so you should attack him." They are also instigating Turkish soldiers, Turkish police officers against ISIS by saying, "Go shoot them, go kill them." The fact is that the PKK is the only danger for Turkey. ISIS poses no threat to Turkey.

728

Weapons and bombs are the snares of the satan. Satan constantly demands blood. Bloodshed is the major characteristic of the satan. It feeds on blood. It doesn't get enough of human blood. First it played such a number on the sons of the Prophet Adam(pbuh); God tells us about this in the story of the Cain and Abel. Cain martyred his brother, shed his brother's blood. See that God says, "So his lower self persuaded him to kill his brother." That happens under the influence of satan.

729

Saying "I do not like the opinions of this person, so I will bomb him," is not acceptable. You simply talk to him, explain things to him and if he doesn't acknowledge the truth, it is all you can do. If he does acknowledge the truth, that would be great. There is no compulsion in religion. There is no such method of knocking sense into a person with bombs and weapons.

730

What does letting Turkey be divided mean? It means destroying the whole Islamic world, the whole Turkish world. We would be enraged, we would be furious if that happens. We would never, ever let that happen. We would do whatever is necessary to prevent that with the laws and the legal system.

731

It is alright to listen to music, it is alright to have fun and to laugh. Anything to the contrary would disrupt human nature; it would destabilize one's balance. May God forbid, you would make yourself fall ill if you disrupt your nature. Be joyous, be happy, have fun, laugh and be playful. That is how God created you. Otherwise, you turn in on yourself, you become ill, your health would then be disrupted, you would then lose your strength to think. It also makes it impossible for you to live by Islam.

732

They have provoked all the hodjas to strive to stop the system of the Mahdi, to stop the Islamic Union. They are all repeating the same things in chorus saying, "The Mahdi (pbuh) will not come, Jesus (pbuh) will not come, Islamic Unity will not be formed." By doing so, they are trying to demotivate Muslims in their own minds. Actually, their saying, "They are not going to come," is merely another portent of the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).

733

Right now the PKK relies on the US. However, it is obvious that the deep state of the US will eventually crush them. They have done that in many other countries; they have always supported communist groups and then crushed them tragically. These ones [the PKK] are sucked into the same foolishness.

734

God has already created Heaven and He says that it is ready for us right now. And He tells us that Muslims are living in there right now. God does not leave anything hazy or undetermined. God says, "It is there right now." We do not see it now because of our dimension in time.

735

A Muslim trusts the promise of God. Almighty God says, "I do not break My promise. If you attain sincerity, if you become Muslims, I will put you in My Heaven." A Muslim would not, and cannot, say. "I wonder if that is true."

736

If one concentrates well enough, deep faith would settle in him completely; it would be crystal clear in his mind. Those who can analyze and see this world well would be able to see Heaven well as well. Those who understand and grasp the system here very well, would understand Heaven very well as well.

737

Heaven is immaculately clean. There are paintings in Heaven, there is music, there is beauty. All the women are very well kept and well-groomed in Heaven. Turn this world you are living in into Heaven on Earth; why do you have to turn it into hell? God wants us to turn this world into Heaven with our faith, with our intelligence, with our efforts.

738

Clean and purify yourself. Muslims are clean, immaculate, pure people. What does pure mean? It means purified. God gives people weaknesses and we are to get rid of those impurities and weaknesses, and attain the beauty of Heaven. A Muslim would be radiant and immaculately clean.

739

They have misrepresented Islam as ugly and frightening. They have misrepresented it as a system of violence, as a hellish movement. They have misrepresented Muslims as killing machines, as fond of massacres, and thus caused people to take a great dislike to Islam. The fact of the matter is, however, that Islam means beauty, aesthetics, arts, reason, knowledge, culture, understanding, goodness and sincerity.

740

Those with the characteristics of the Pharaoh would be jealous when they see Muslims' success. A Muslim is an individual with the highest quality, the highest level of intelligence. A Muslim is the best person in the world. Islam does not promote a corrupt, rotten mindset.

741

Radicals have no say in defeating Darwinism, which is the greatest movement of the antichrist of all times. There is no effort that scientifically defeats this movement of the antichrist, other than ours. There is no one else who preaches the message of God in this way, other than us. There might be some efforts here and there, but all of them remain weak when compared to ours.

742

It would not bother us if our Kurdish brothers establish a state outside the borders of the Turkish Republic. We would be proud to see them there, so long as they behave in an Islamic manner.

743

The American deep state should stop protecting those PKK villains. They are protecting and watching over those immoral, filthy scum. That is atrocious. If that goes on, the US will fall into disgrace all over the world.

744

We would be enraged with any movement that intends to close the door to the Turkish Islamic Union, to Islamic Unity. I mean that would bring about the Last Day, that would be the end of the whole world. That is our natural right; we want to live independently and at ease in our own country.

745

Do you know what Darwinism says? The Torah, the Gospel and the Qur'an are all telling lies (may God forbid); there is no such thing that can be called Holy Books. There is no such thing as Prophets, it claims. There is no such thing as the Hereafter, there is no Hell, there is no Heaven, there are no angels; this is what Darwinism teaches. If you teach this philosophy of denial in schools, and if you do not teach the proper response, you would be opening the door to all sorts of disasters.

746

Darwinism is the real reason behind the collapse of the Ottomans. At the time of Abdulhamid, Darwinism was being taught in all schools.

747

Which American would China treat in the way he treats Uighur Turks? They can never do something like that. They should leave aside this impertinence and this lack of good conscience. They are to treat Uighur Turks in the way they treat the citizens of the UK, the US and Holland. This should be their standard.

748

Why is there the need for China to agitate the Uighur Turks to this extent? This agitation causes terror and panic among people. Leave them alone, let them lead a normal life. Show Uighurs respect as much as you show respect to Americans and French.

749

If America wants to do good, they should struggle against the PKK and encourage Turkey to struggle against the PKK. Saying, "You should stand against ISIS," and supporting the PKK is not acceptable.

750

Jews regard Muslims as faithful people, as people of faith. They regard Muslims as the people of Noah and we would regard Muslims as faithful people so long as they accept the prophethood of the prophet Mohammad (saas). They are Muslims if they perform their prayers as depicted in the Torah, if they give alms as described in the Torah and if they accept the prophethood of our Prophet Mohammed (saas): Then everything is okay.

751

People of faith are each other's guardians. They should protect us and we should protect them.

752

There is no party to call the HDP. That is because the HDP has no foundation, no ideology. What is their ideology? It is not Marxism, not communism, not nationalism. They have only one ideology and that is fear: I mean they lay a foundation on fear. People go and vote for the HDP out of fear; that is the whole issue.

753

Do you know what "freedom for Öcalan" means? It means "freedom to murder." It means "there is no punishment for being a murderer." It means "there is no punishment for martyring soldiers, for martyring police officers." It is an effort to legitimize the PKK.

754

The AK Party should pay attention to the fact that our people are devoted to their spirituality. First of all, we do not want separation. Second of all, we want to get rid of the nuisance of the PKK.

755

The language the PKK understands is humiliation. Their immorality should be emphasized and their foulness should be communicated to the world. This is a system that disrupts all the plans of the USA.

756

The spirit of idolatry brings about cowardice. They fail to understand this. God says, "I will put fear in their hearts." And He really puts fear in their hearts, so they become fearful and cowardly.

757

The Islamic world is groveling right now because of their superstitions; they are ruined because of that. Radicalism brings along timidity. When that is the case, the bravery and self-reliance of the companions is not formed.

758

We should do as God says, what our Prophet (saas) says, what his companions say. Were there sects at the time of our Prophet (saas)? Were there sects such as Hanafis, Hanbali, Maliki, Shafi'i, Shi'ah and Wahhabism at the time of our Prophet (saas)? No, there weren't. In order to avoid the damnation of God, we need to return to the pure and real religion of God, to the Qur'an.

759

It is important to preserve that immaculate personality of Anatolians: Writers, journalists should also express this fact. Furthermore if necessary, precautionary action should be taken by the government.

760

Anatolian people are really immaculate, decent people. You should assume a respectful, polite attitude and pay tribute to their customs and traditions. Anatolian people have a trademark morality that should not be manipulated; that beautiful morality should be kept immaculate.

761

The US, who keeps silent against the PKK, seems to act as a bully against ISIS. You should go deal with the PKK. After the PKK is dealt with, you can leave ISIS to us. ISIS would then withdraw; it wouldn't be a problem. ISIS is a structure that would listen to reason, but the PKK is not. ISIS can be persuaded with the Qur'an.

762

While there is a flock of bandits that martyred our ten thousands of our soldiers and police officers, what business would we have with ISIS, which has not harmed Turkey at all? Even though they are mistaken, they are Muslims and they did no harm to us. But the PKK is a communist, Godless, Bookless, Stalinist terror organization that attacks Turkey's all spiritual values.

763

The Antichrist has a characteristic and it makes people deny God. The name of the system that would annihilate the damage of the antichrist is the system of the Mahdi.

764

While describing the antichrist, our Prophet (saas) said, "It will make the world deny God." Right now it has succeeded in doing that. Because of Darwinism, people are denying the Existence of God. That means the antichrist came. Then you should also see that the system of the Mahdi has assumed an attitude against it. If there is the antichrist, the Mahdi would not remain silent. He would crush it with knowledge and science.

765

With Darwinism, a system that makes 99% of the world deny God has settled upon the world for the first time in the course of history. The name of this system is the system of the antichrist.

766

Love is the most pleasurable feeling in the world. It is also the most pleasurable blessing of the Hereafter. It is the color, the light of life. People's souls freshen up with love. One would die, suffer scourges and be devastated without love. Life without love would be poisonous.

767

A lack of love darkens people. A lack of love is really intense in evil women and evil men. Nothing other than hatred spills out of their mouths. That is why God makes their faces as dark as coal.

768

Love is the greatest blessing in this world. God created this world for love. He created His servants for love. He created Heaven for love. Love is the sole goal. Love is also the reason for the smooth and beautiful appearance of people, of plants, of animals, of all creations, of the atoms.

769

We would never accept Turkey being surrounded by the PKK. The roads, the connections, the veins of the PKK should be severed completely at least from three points. This is a necessity for the struggle against the PKK.

770

We, as Turkey, would have nothing to do with ISIS. The PKK is the only target. Ataturk says that communism is the greatest enemy of the Turkish Nation and should be crushed wherever it is spotted. Of course that should be done with knowledge, laws and legal system.

771

The Last Day and the end of the world would have come long ago, were it not for the appearance of Imam Mahdi. The Last Day is imminent; God makes it wait for the sake of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).

772

An egotistical, selfish structure, a Darwinist/materialist structure has developed among the new generation. They are not at all concerned with the separation of Turkey. Measures should be taken against this. A course on National Values should be given top place in the curriculum. The importance of the unity and integrity of the Turkish Nation, the danger of the PKK, love for our army, the invalidity of Darwinism/materialism should all be taught in these courses.

773

It is not acceptable to fire bullets at a Muslim. Those who attempt to do that are ignoble murderers and will be rewarded forever with Hell in response.

774

Some imagine that Mahdi (pbuh) will live in palaces. The fact is that the Mahdi (pbuh) will be living in his house. That is also mentioned in the 4,000 -year -old Torah; the Torah states that "He will lead from his couch" for Moschiach Mahdi. The Mahdi will lead the world with his ideas, with his opinions and his love. All the leaders of the world will be influenced by him and will lead the world in line with him.

775

We will have Turkey as the leader of the Islamic Union, as the leader of the Turkish-Islamic Union. We will create a union, not disintegration; a unification not a deterioration.

776

The HDP is a virtual party. It is a virtual structure that came into existence with the votes taken from the masses intimidated in an environment of terror, by the violence of the PKK.

777

We have not seen the Messenger of God (saas) but we love him more than our own lives. High quality love is important. Passion is important. For instance, you might see someone for ten minutes only but love him madly. You might see him for ten hours daily but live in distress and nothing else.

778

What does Almighty God say to the Prophet Moses (pbuh)? God says, "We gave him tenderness and purity from Us." He doesn't say that he became loveable and tender on his own or that he made others love him on his own. God says that He made him loved, that it was Him Who gave him love.

779

Independent love is not acceptable. She says "he doesn't love me enough." First of all, God is the One Who creates love. You are asking for the love of idolaters. You are asking for the love of idols. If you attempt to idolize a man, you would become an idolater anyway. God would plague you, you would feel distresses. God would take away the love from that person's heart. You would niether love, nor be loved. God would make you hollow inside. Love should be directly expected from God.

780

The PKK should not act spoiled; microbes can procreate anywhere but once you pour a bottle of tincture of iodine on it, they would all be annihilated. The PKK rejoices thinking how they succeeded at spreading the infection, but let me say that all it takes a tincture of iodine. We will lay hold of all of them with laws and the legal system.

781

It is a fact that the Jews are not that much liked both in Turkey and in the Middle East. That is a wrong attitude and it is against good conscience. Jews are from the line of the prophets; they are a devout community, faithful to the Prophet Moses (pbuh). Attempting to crush them, thinking that they are but few in number and easy to overpower, would bring about inauspiciousness. That would be a sin. That would be shameful. That would be lack of good conscience.

782

God would bring about inauspiciousness upon those who attack the inoffensive ones among the people of Israel and that has been seen in the course of history as well. God would bring about auspiciousness and plenty upon those who protect inoffensive people; that has been seen in the course of history as well.

783

Love is zesty; love is beautiful. A lack of good conscience, or persecution is very distressing; they are against the nature of humans. We are going experience the taste of that love, the beauty of that love. We will also teach people about that.

784

Those who attempt to put the blood of Muslims on our soldiers' hands, those who attempt to make our soldiers get used to murders, get used to shedding Muslims' blood, would get their just desserts.

785

In the Qur'an, God prohibited sorrow. A Muslim should put aside sorrow through faith. There is no good in sorrow; it merely harms people. Sorrow is a poison that wrecks life, it lays the grounds for illnesses. Joy, on the other hand, is nourishment for the body.

786

It is a religious obligation to wipe unbelievers off the face of this world. But of course this is done with knowledge, with information, with love, with laws and the legal system. Weapons should be kept, not with the intention of using them, but as a deterrent force.

787

ISIS is a scourge sent by God upon the PKK; He either sends hurricanes or earthquakes upon people or inflicts such people upon them.

788

Troubles and afflictions only sharpen and strengthen people. This is the way God disciplines. Or else a great portion of people would remain heedless.

789

Communism, Stalinism is a system of belief. It is a terrorist, blood-shedding, psychopathic, devilish religion. It is the religion of satan. Against the religion of satan, there is the religion of God and it is the True religion. We stand up for that True religion. The clique of God stands against the clique of satan and the clique of God would always crush them with knowledge, with laws and with the legal system.

790

Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will come as the vizier of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), that is what our Prophet (saas) foretold. In order to honor the Mahdi, in order to emphasize his greatness, Almighty God sends Jesus Messiah as his vizier. The greatness of the Mahdi could be appreciated from that alone. He is the last guide. He is the greatest guide, the greatest Saint of all times. That is to say, imam Mahdi is superior to the Companions.

791

One of the reasons behind the US and UK's drastic attitude against the ISIS is the global deep state. That is because looking into the perspective of history, the global deep state sees that such a group will appear and be successful. They are aware that struggling against it would be meaningless. They will do their task until the appearance of the Mahdi (pbuh). They cannot stop this from happening.

792

Those shooting a Muslim are despicable. It is ignominy and immorality to kill Muslims. Those who put forward such a proposal are the most despicable, the most spineless and the most ignoble ones. That should be known.

793

The US remained standing until now with their conservatism, with their piety. Once the US is stripped from their piety, it will be the end of the US. The US will be ruined.

794

Those who contemplate killing Muslims, who prepare to do so, are despicable, immoral, treacherous and immoral. Killing Muslims will be rewarded with everlasting hell.

795

The real issue is the PKK. They should never attempt to make us deal with ISIS. We will never accept the dishonor of firing a bullet against the ISIS. It is a dishonor, a perfidy, an ignominy to shoot at Muslims. And whoever attempts to give a fatwa to that end is the most despicable one.

796

If the money spent on weapons is spent on those in need, there would be an inconceivable wealth in this world. There would be plentitude all over the world. They are spending money on weapons, on killing people. Weapons will be destroyed at the time of the Mahdi (pbuh). Money that used to be spent on weapons will be distributed to Muslims, and to wretched people and those who are in need.

797

Not being strong enough to deal with the PKK yet saying, "I will play a hero fighting against ISIS," is unacceptable. If you are brave enough, you should go crush the PKK with laws and the legal system.

798

The command of God is evident; I am saying this to the PKK as well, they will soon be defeated. Their lifespan of 40 years as the antichrist has come to an end. They will all be put in prisons; they should come to their senses.

799

Kurdish people are noble and elevated people, they are decent, kind, radiant, religious, pure, immaculate, honest and brave. But the PKK are debased, treacherous and perfidious, they are a herd of murderers harboring all sorts of nastiness. I really am surprised to see those who do not know how to differentiate Kurdish people from the PKK. I mean, one needs to make that distinction.

800

If our current government does not form a coalition with the MHP, they would pay for that historical mistake by being wiped off the political scene. That is why they should make a coalition with the MHP, a solid coalition.

801

Justice is the first thing Mahdi (pbuh) will ensure. People will never be persecuted at his time.

802

Their claims about Mahdi (pbuh) not being mentioned in the Qur'an are not true. Surat al-Kahf and Surah Yusuh entirely refer to the system of the Mahdi. The story of the Prophet Solomon (pbuh) refers to the system of the Mahdi. The 55th verse of Surat An-Nur refers to the global dominion and the system of the Mahdi.

803

They say, "There are 600,000 hadiths." According to this statement, our Prophet (saas) should have said one hadith each hour starting from his birth. And these only cover the hadiths accepted, selected by Bukhari; and some say that Bukhari had chosen them among one million hadiths, others say he had chosen them among three million hadiths. Even if our Prophet (saas) had lived for a thousand years, he wouldn't have enough time to say all these hadiths. That means some of them are made-up, fake hadiths. Even a child would have understood this.

804

This is a transient world. All those people that you admire die and go. All those buildings that you admire will fall into pieces and they are already falling down. You hold those clothes, those pieces of fabric, etc., in high esteem whereas you should be admiring God, admiring the Qur'an.

805

PKK militants are reaping the harvest of their own actions. It is the PKK who taught violence and terror to the region for years, yet in the current situation, the PKK is the one being subjected to violence as well. Whereas they should have taken peace, brotherhood and love as their basis.

806

There is a symbol of a "deadlock" in Freemasonry. That is a five-thousand year old symbol used to symbolize that the world will come to a deadlock and that Mahdi (pbuh) will be the one to solve that deadlock.

807

It is religiously unlawful to factionalize. It is religiously unlawful to divide Muslims into factions. One should love each and every single one of them. You might vote for a party; that is something else, but God has prohibited us to be in factions. There is an explicit command to that extend. The verse directly mentions factionalizing. Of course we should support all Muslims.

808

The Greater Middle East Initiative is a project sketched to destroy the system of the Mahdi. What does the system of the Mahdi demand? It demands the Islamic world to be in unity. What does the Greater Middle East initiative demand? It demands that Islamic world be torn to pieces. Ever since the beginning, their goal is to tear Turkey into pieces, tear Iraq and Syria into pieces.

809

The AKP and the MHP should form the government and come to power. They should give the Ministry of Internal Affairs to the MHP and should make a brave young man the Minister of Internal Affairs. Then eradicate the PKK with the legal system. This is the most crucial point.

810

It is better for us to come across fierce communists, anarchist-Stalinists or devout Jewish people with their kippahs and ringlets, with the Torah in their hands invoking the Name of God night and day, when we go to Israel? Of course it is better to see those who invoke God. That is a great blessing. And they are showing an immense loyalty towards the Prophet Moses (pbuh) for four thousand years.

811

Some say, "What was there before God?" Since you are talking about what is before and what is after, it is apparent that you are bound to time. God is timeless. How can you ask what is before and what is after, when He is timeless. God is beyond time and space. When there is timelessness, you cannot ask what was before? God exists timelessly. We are created as beings bound to time.

812

When one is drowned in feelings of superiority, God prevents him from drawing closer to religion and takes away his mind.

813

Satan is a maniac that has reached the highest point of snobbery, apathy and romanticism. Such maniacs can also be observed among society.

814

There is no reasonable aspect of the feeling of superiority. Humans are really wretched beings that are bound to sleep, having difficulty remaining afoot and die in a short while. It is a miracle that such a wretched being could have such an inconceivable feeling of superiority.

815

Struggling against the PKK is an individual duty, a fardh al-'ayn for every Muslim. No one could say, "what's it to me?" God says that Muslims, when an oppressive wrong is inflicted on them, are not cowed but help and defend themselves. It is an individual duty on all Muslims to struggle against the PKK. Anything other than that would be religiously unlawful. If Muslims do not struggle against the PKK, they would be religiously unlawful. That is because the PKK is a movement of the antichrist attacking our Muslim Kurdish brothers.

816

We want a free and liberal Turkey, we want a free Southeast Anatolia. We are going to perform our acts of worship as we like in the Southeast. We are going to invoke the name of God as we like. All the political parties will be able to carry out their activities as they like. Should the PKK attempt to interfere, we would clip their wings with laws and the legal system. They should know this.

817

The accounts state that the lifespan of the antichrist is forty years. The PKK is also a movement of the antichrist and it has fulfilled its lifetime. God will make the Turkish army, the Turkish state, the Turkish people and the Turkish police instrumental in that. This scourge will be eradicated with laws and the legal system. The time has come. Putting a struggle against them is religiously lawful, it is in fact a religious obligation. Delaying it is religiously unlawful.

818

The PKK should be eradicated with laws and the legal system. That is a religious obligation. It is clear and explicit with the verses of the Qur'an; unbelievers would never triumph. Truth always comes out victorious.

819

Crying is the general characteristic of idolaters. They misrepresent themselves as crying, blubbering people as if they are sentimental, compassionate and easily flappable. And thus their paths are opened for them. Actually, one only cries out of fear of God, out of love for God; but these ones cry as a ploy, to put on a show with their idolater spirit.

820

Idolaters sometimes present themselves as if they are about to do something good but they are treacherous. You should not believe the face an idolater displays. The good behavior he displays in front of you, or the speeches he gives and his words, are not valid. Their insidious and covert maniacal world is the truth. The Qur'an draws attention to this fact.

821

God gives time to unbelievers and then knocks them down because they go astray. The lifespan of unbelief is about 40 years and the PKK is about to fulfill this 40 years.

822

Muslims do not have the unity the PKK has among them. They do not even have one tenth of their solidarity. For instance, they live inside a cave on a three thousand meter high mountain. If you ask a Muslim to go live in a cave, very few Muslims would ever accept it. If you ask them to put their lives on the line, they would probably say ,"I have a family, I have my wife, I am supposed to advance in life, I will have my child married..." and would never put their lives on the line. But see that the PKK militants do put their lives on the line. That is why God gives them success, even if they are in disbelief, simply because they are determined.

823

If one displays egocentricity, people become really vicious against him. That is why modesty is like an armor. Egocentricity on the other hand is a disease that increases aggression and attracts troubles.

824

God is the One Who knows everything and He is the One Who establishes the commands. And God is Wise, there is wisdom in everything He does. Someone might say, "Something went terribly wrong." But that is not true, everything happens for a reason. Your mind might not conceive it yet and you might learn the wisdom behind it, either in this world or in the Hereafter, but there is certainly wisdom behind everything that happens.

825

Why are stories in the Qur'an told? For everyone to take the moral of the story. They are not told simply as stories. They hold light to an event that will take place. In the stories of the Qur'an, the incidents that will take place in the future are told with symbols. For instance, Surah Yusuf is the explanation of the system of the Mahdi with symbols.

826

The Prophet Solomon (pbuh) is the forefather of the Mahdi (pbuh). Hazrat Mahdi will be very much like the Prophet Solomon (pbuh). Mahdi (pbuh) will also love arts, beauty and glory a lot. He will adorn the world. Our Prophet (saas) says that he will prosper the whole world, for Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).

827

One should focus on Heaven and grasp it well. One should strengthen his faith. A Muslim should have that knowledge fully settled in his mind. It should not remain as blurred information. A Muslim should know everything told about Heaven in the Qur'an, he should know all of the verses.

828

Muslims always face beautiful things after their deaths. There would be no difficulties, no pain, no fear for them; they won't face such feelings in any stage. Everything goes smoothly for them. They will never face any kind of distress while their souls are taken, while they arise from death, while they enter Heaven.

829

The Prophet Solomon (pbuh) is the sultan of arts and aesthetics. He is the one who taught arts and aesthetics to the world. Christianity learned the arts from him. They have learned how palaces should be adorned, how the masjids should be adorned, how the buildings should be adorned, all from him. The palaces in Europe, the palaces of the Ottomans have all been built by emulating the palace of the Prophet Solomon (pbuh). The Prophet Solomon is the father of all palaces, he is the father of arts, aesthetics and beauty.

830

Science and modern physics should be encouraged immensely. Just like the Qur'an, science is something the verses of God manifest themselves intensely.

831

Science is a method that demonstrates the existence of God. Actually this is the main task of science. Science proves and explains the artistry of God. In the Qur'an Almighty God says that; "only those who are firmly rooted in knowledge, and the Muslims, have faith." Firmly rooted in knowledge are those who fear God.

832

The world is rotating; the world is rotating around the Sun and the Sun is moving inside the Milky Way, inside the vastness of space. It is like we are all in a giant plane yet there is no pilot, there is no connection to the tower. Among the billions of celestial bodies, the Earth goes on without running into anything, without ever shaking us up. That is truly wondrous.

833

One would come to faith if he simply thinks about the human brain. Simply by looking into the life of a spider, you would attain faith. Simply by looking into the life of a bee, you would attain faith. Simply thinking about these things would make one come to believe unconditionally.

834

Our Prophet (saas) is the last Messenger, the last prophet. Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will come back in the End Times, but he will not be bringing a new religion. He simply abides by Islam. I mean he comes as a member of this ummah.

835

God wants a solidified faith; that can only be attained with a sincere soul. It is not possible to attain that without sincere good conscience.

836

Belief in angels, belief in destiny; these should be thought about one by one, pondered upon and settled in one's mind as perfect belief. I mean, a great majority of the public has such beliefs, but they remain as superficial information in their minds; however, settled knowledge could only be formed in devout Muslims. One needs to turn that into settled knowledge.

837

Once one decides on loving God, his horizons would be opened up. The flow of information in his brain would increase. His reasoning and judgment would be opened.

838

Almighty God emphasizes the importance of belief in the Hereafter and Heaven, and of preparing oneself for Heaven. A Muslim should concentrate on that topic and discipline himself in that respect. I mean it should not be blurred information but a clear knowledge. Life and Heaven should constantly be nested in one another.

839

If one thinks about Heaven superficially, his brain could only perceive it superficially and a superficial belief could be formed. But if one concentrates well and, comes to have faith nicely and asks for that information from God insistently, Heaven and the Hereafter will become clear in his mind.

840

God sent ISIS to wipe out the PKK. Are the methods employed by ISIS right? No, they are wrong, but God creates them like that as an affliction cast upon the PKK.

841

People do not devote themselves completely to God; I can see that there is a great mass of people who would abandon religion once it conflicts with their interests. The Mahdi (pbuh), on the other hand, is a person who would always ask for the good pleasure of God even if it conflicts with all his interests. As it is understood from the hadiths, he would withdraw himself from all aspects of social life.

842

A Muslim should carry out serious preparations for Heaven throughout the day and focus on Heaven. One should fear Hell, but should prepare himself thoroughly to the Hereafter. A Muslim should prepare himself for Heaven, not for Hell.

843

A modern, enlightened, loving Islam, that is based on love will prevail in the world. They should not struggle in vain other than that. It is not possible to attain any results without a modern understanding of Islam.

844

Once you get dragged into the swamp of traditionalism it is like a bottomless pit which contaminates you more and more. Radicalism is an affliction that increases incrementally. One says, "I am a radical." The other says, "I am even more radical." They wallow into the most inconceivable filth in competing one another .

845

Islam will appear in the face of this world as an utterly modern, joyous, healthy system, open to science and arts, open to beauty and aesthetics. It will appear like Heaven. Islam will not be an environment full of filth and darkness, causing people to suffer, hanging people, chopping people up, far removed from aesthetics; it will not be an environment in which filthy people are living. God would not harm Islam like that and will not let Muslims harm Islam like that.

846

The world would never accept an understanding of Islam that is incompatible with human nature. First and foremost, God would not accept it: Every time they attempt to bring about such a corrupt, rotten, filthy understanding of religion that reminds one of Hell, God would degrade them, humiliate them, drag them on the ground and ruin them; let me state this openly. They should forget about it.

847

There should be music, there should be paintings, there should be statues, there should be aesthetics; young girls should be able to wander around well-groomed, young men should be able to wander around handsome and glorious. Let everywhere be like an art gallery. Then the whole world would admire Muslims.

848

Quality and aesthetics are the most important topics. They are what embellishes, what beautifies life.

849

I keep saying this insistently; had they advocated the modern understanding of Islam in Egypt, the whole of Europe and the US would have supported them. The whole world would love them, recognizing them as an amazing power as well. One should perform prayers, fast, give alms, make pilgrimage yet they should simply be modern. They resist this.

850

There is no need to get into a direct conflict with their idols. If necessary, one might protect his faith appearing like he is siding with that idol. I mean if there is a danger, if the idol is about to crush him, if it is going to cost him his life, if it will prevent him from living by his religion, one might act as if he is siding with the idols. This is also defined in the Qur'an; one wouldn't be responsible from that.

851

Anywhere God is in – and there is no place He is not- is like Heaven with faith. If one does not believe in God, no matter where he goes, it will be his Hell.

852

They have changed Islam into a pagan, polytheistic system –may God forbid- and the way God uses to bring people into line, to correct their wrong ways is through disasters and scourges, through hunger, wars and terror; God creates a devastating terror for them to change their ways, so they back down from their ways. They, in return hold on more tightly to their idols imagining that their salvation is in those idols. The truth of the matter is that such an attitude is the exact reason why they are in this state.

853

All of the people residing in the region hate the PKK. It is not possible for people to love or respect an aggressor group using violence.

854

Idols have always been hated throughout the course of history. But because they have a unifying impact, they garner a fake respect.

855

Mahdi(pbuh) is a calm, tranquil, gentle person. In the hadith, our Prophet (saas) says that Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will be ruling from his home. He is a teacher of love. He is the one who will ensure that the whole world loves one another.

856

Sound comes into existence from material inside the brain that doesn't exist. There is no sound outside. But out of material, sound comes into existence, light comes into existence; inside the brain, that doesn't exist. There is nothing to be called taste outside. Taste is formed inside the brain. But this is not the brain made up of flesh; it is the brain that is comprised of radiance. We are thinking and talking with the brain made up of radiance.

857

The goal of the US's Great Middle East Project is to stop the system of the Mahdi; that is because the system of the Mahdi is a system that would unite all the Islamic world. The Great Middle East Project, on the other hand, is a system that would break the Islamic world to pieces.

858

The American deep state and the British deep state would object to a MHP-AK Party coalition. Taking all these risks, they need to form this coalition. Such a coalition would be one that would break the back of the US's Great Middle East Project.

859

It seems that the most rational choice is an AK Party- MHP coalition. Nothing could come out of CHP- AK Party coalition. In my opinion, the CHP would get exhausted in such a coalition and so would the AK Party. Both of them would be diminished. It won't be a rational choice.

860

It is important that Turkey focuses on its rocket industry. We kindly ask that from the Ministry of Defense. We should have ten thousand, one hundred thousand rockets. They should have a one thousand km range, two thousand km range, three thousand km range. As a deterrent force, we need to be like Iran.

861

The PKK trains all the youngsters they train to focus on their goal. They have literally withdrawn from all social aspects of life; they only stay focused on their target. This is how our Turkish youth should be. They should stay focused on our national, our spiritual targets. Otherwise, may God forbid, troubles would not cease to rain down on us.

862

Calling a PKK militant “Kurdish” is an insult to Kurdish people. They have lost their Kurdish identity, they have lost their humanity, they have even lost animalistic feelings and have turned into weird creatures.

863

I look at TRT (Turkish Radio Television) and see that they call those anarchists "Kurdish insurgents." Why don't you call them Godless, Bookless, Stalinist, communist PKK? How can you identify them with the Kurds? Would our Kurdish brothers ever act like that? Our Kurdish people are radiant, decent people. By saying so, you are smearing the name of the Kurds.

864

Mercy is where Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is. Compassion is where Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is. We are the most compassionate state in the Middle East. Cruelty runs rampant in the region but compassion is everywhere in our country.

865

Who taught violence to the groups resorting to violence in the region? The PKK: The PKK is the influential grandfather of this ideology, of this way of acting. The PKK is the one who taught everyone how to commit murder, how to kill.

866

Islam cannot be communicated by hanging people and chopping people up. It can only be done with preaching, by endearing people to Islam, by persuading them.

867

The lifespan of every antichrist is 40 years; do not forget that. When the antichrist comes, he wouldn't leave without acting as the antichrist, he wouldn't go without running out of his time.

868

Being afraid of an enemy, being afraid of something is a sign of lack of love for God; it is a sign of being aloof.

869

It is crucial not to leave aside one's love for God pertinaciously.

870

When one hears about those in need, the first thing that comes to his mind is being in need of food, in need of bread. One needs faith, one needs love of God. If you pray, God responds to your prayers. You need love, you need profundity, you need deep love for God.

871

How does one pray when he is harmed somehow? Perfectly. How is one's connection with God? Perfect. How is his respect? Perfect. But he has been harmed with troubles; he is not motivated without those troubles. Why are you waiting for those troubles to hit you? One should constantly be in the state he is when troubles hit him.

872

The best form of resting is – of course we do not do this for God to let us rest, but for the good pleasure of God- is perfect connection with God. There is no rest other than that. I mean one should never weaken his connection with God under no conditions. Saying, "I will put things right later on," is wrong.

873

When one constantly sides with God, his faith would increase. People sometimes tend to abandon God a little and hold on to God from time to time. One should never break off his uninterrupted spiritual connection with God.

874

A great many people rebel against God or expostulate on God. They expostulate, saying, "He doesn't help me, He has taken my son away from me, He has taken my car away from me, He has taken my possessions from me." Who is the One Who gives you your child? God is. Who is the One Who takes him away from you? God is. I mean the expostulation here is very irrational; it is an act far removed from sincerity. God doesn't like such conduct.

875

“Sincerity” is a Word closely connected with the Qur'an. We could not know what sincerity is if we do not know the Qur'an. Sincerity means a person's not applying any pressure on his brain and thinking on the side of God in everything; it means his never expostulating on God- may God forbid, his never being troubled by God or never rebelling against God- may God forbid.

876

God keeps the world on hold by means of the system of the Mahdi right now. That is to say Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is the reason for the delay of the coming of the Last Day.

877

The weakness of faith in people is something God dislikes. When that is the case, God takes away their riches in this world. He gives a general distress, an unrest and discomfort to the whole world. People fail to understand the reason behind that. Actually the reason for the troubles in the world is the dissemination of the weakness of faith in the world.

878

Almighty God always aims for sincere, exalted faith. When Almighty God sees sincere, lofty faith in the world, He increases the abundance on this world: When there is weakness in faith, God reduces that abundance on the world. That is why pure and sincere Muslims should continue this spiritual reinforcement with all their might.

879

Our people, our mothers, our sisters, our brothers in the Southeast are very devout people. Their eyes would be filled with tears when they hear the Name of God. It is not possible for them to trail behind the Godless, Bookless, Stalinist PKK by their own will.

880

Turkey would be lost in a coalition formed with the AK Party and HDP; let me say that much. The AK Party will be zeroed and the HDP will gain great capacity and we would go towards a disaster of epic proportions.

881

The MHP should only demand one ministry and that should be the Ministry of Internal Affairs and that should be it. They should not have any other prerequisites or red lines. They should only demand the Ministry of Internal Affairs with full capacity. They should activate maroon berets and military police and make it unbearable for the PKK with laws and the legal system.

882

The Mahdi (pbuh) will not talk by engaging in demagoguery. He will speak briefly but to the point. He will make erudite, concise, influential, statements directed towards the essence of the topics at hand, covering all the important points and bringing exact solutions.

883

None of the militants of the PKK is interested in marrying, in finishing their schooling, none of them are after striking it rich. They are not after having fun in discos or bars. They are not after deciding where to have an engagement party and how many people to invite. They do not have any interest in deciding the meals to be served in their weddings. They have no interest in cars. They only have their eyes on their ideology. And when that is the case, of course they attain success.

884

The AK Party should step forward with the appearance of a very modern structure, respectful towards women's rights, loving both ladies who cover their heads and those wearing revealing clothes, respecting all of them, open to music, arts, having fun, with the appearance of a liberal party. They should be the utmost liberal, the utmost democratic. I mean the MHP should also be like this and put these principles into practice. After guaranteeing these fundamental acts, they should wipe the PKK off the map.

885

The MHP should have one prerequisite for coalition; to put an end to the PKK. That would turn the MHP into a hero. That would save both the AK Party and the MHP. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs should be given to the MHP.

886

So long as the state continues with Darwinist propaganda, so long as the textbooks of the state continue to say "There is no God, there is no Book, there is no religion, there is no faith" under the influence of Darwinist philosophy, so long as they say, "The existence of Heaven and Hell is not true, they are giving you incorrect information by saying that they exist," in books, the power of the PKK would increase.

887

People like wealth, power and ruler-ship. Beautiful women, beautiful cars, beautiful music, beautiful clothes all have a very powerful impact on people's lowerselves. If you communicate religion by making use of those within reasonable, legitimate limits, you would make religion enter life and thus Islam would reach the great masses of people.

888

Israel is the one who instills religiousness in the region. At that time, Palestine was the center of communism. All the communists were trained there. Egypt was a center of communism, Syria was a center of communism. They became religious after the foundation of Israel. They looked at them and saw that they are religious and decided to be religious themselves.

889

The PKK should be wiped out of the region with laws and the legal system. That would be a great lesson for the US. But it should be done in cooperation with Iran. They should make an agreement with Iran, they should jointly decide on annihilating the PKK within the mainframe of the law. I mean they should make an agreement about the fight against terrorism. That would form an enormous power. The two of them should wipe the PKK off the region together.

890

Almighty God only looks if he is a Muslim or not. I mean there is no such thing as a semi-hypocrite or a semi-Muslim. God says "Everything you do would go to your idols.” For instance, he behaves 5% for God and 95% for his idols. Everything he does would then go his idols. Or on the contrary, he behaves 95% for God and 5% for idols; that would go completely to idols as well. God says, "You should do everything you do only for Me."

891

Those who are after their own pleasure want to be on both sides, they want to go be with Muslims and with the others as well. They want to have fun both here and there but when they face the slightest difficulty, when something conflicts with their interests, they flee instantly. Again when things seem to be at his sweet will, he sniffs and looks around. He approaches things if he sees no problem. He imagines that he can really attain some results from such a behavior. However if he acts this treacherously, knowingly and intentionally, his reward would be ever heavier. He won't be saved by that occasional coming and going.

892

When one gives his life on the path of God, that is what God approves of the most. God defines it as the greatest form of demonstration of love; martyrdom, being a martyr for God.

893

The characteristic of the Mahdi (pbuh) is that he has such an exalted conscience. His good conscience is higher than that of others; that is it. Or else, it is not because he has a special ability, a special superiority.

894

Adhesions to the system of the Mahdi in a calm, covert environment are much more eligible. For instance, there had been groups adhering to our Prophet (saas) but the good deeds they will attain for doing so is much less. The first ones to pledge allegiance are very eligible. The first 313 people, like the number of the companions who fought in the Battle of Badr, they are very important.

895

The system of the Mahdi acts secretly and covertly. That is to rule out weak people with hypocritical character, people devoted to this world. The people devoted to this world, people full of jealousy and envy, people in love with this world are unable to use their willpower and mind in such a calm environment. They are consumed with a stoicism and lethargy, so they lay themselves aside. But in a very fast-moving, fast-paced environment, a great number of adhesions take place with that sudden excitement. But let me say this, such adhesions are not that much eligible.

896

The system of the Mahdi continues its normal course but its pace changes from time to time. Sometimes it escalates, sometimes it continues with a reasonable pace. God regulates that pace. Meaning everything moves according to the planning of God.

897

If the PKK doesn't lay down their weapons willingly, a military solution could be sought. We do not want to live under the shadow of weapons. We do not want a Southeast in which weapons rule.

898

A coalition with the HDP is not acceptable. Before all else, the PKK should be wiped away with laws and the legal system. The coalition should be formed with the MHP or else this nightmare on us would never be gone. They are going to lay down their weapons. That is it.

899

Setting a cruel communist structure like the PKK in the Southeast of Turkey and providing them with a living space in the region would be a grave disaster for our future. If the political parties ally against this, an amazing force would be formed. The CHP, the MHP, the Felicity Party... should decide together to wipe them out from the region with laws and the legal system. They should make a joint declaration on the topic.

900

The PKK will be great trouble for Turkey in the future as well. It is not something to gloss over. In a timely manner, we need to put them straight within the mainframe of the legal system. Delaying it would do no good, it would only let this monster develop even further.

901

Letting people elect their governors in the Southeast would mean losing that region. That is because the PKK has gained dominance in the Southeast. Before all else, we should wipe out the PKK with laws and the legal system. And then let the people elect their governors.

902

The PKK should be wiped out from the region with laws and the weight of the legal system as a whole. They should collect them one by one and put them in jail and put an end to this ignominy.

903

Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) doesn't have palaces. The palace of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is in his heart. Furthermore, the whole world is the palace of Hazrat Mahdi, not only one building. That is because he is the imam of the whole world.

904

The system of the Mahdi will not work with projects. The system of the Mahdi doesn't work with adjustments. There is a structure God wishes and that develops naturally. It is just like a baby developing in a mother's womb. They imagine that they will be creating that child. You cannot do that, God creates it. When the time comes, that child is born and you cannot stop it.

905

Almighty God does not let anything stand before the system of the Mahdi, He doesn't accept any obstacle standing before it. He doesn't give teeth to any movement against the system of the Mahdi. Only the way of the path of the system of the Mahdi is open.

906

They see the system of the Mahdi as a palace and say, "Here's the cement, here's the iron; you build and decorate it and here is your palace." There is no such thing. That palace is in the Sight of God. The system of the Mahdi is in the Sight of God. It is in the flow of destiny, that is something inside the role and it develops metaphysically.

907

One says, "My religion is detached from my social life." That is the point you lose. As a matter of fact, life is a whole. Islam is a whole. Islam envelops all stages of life and everything else. You would ruin yourself if you do so.

908

One feels a little bit admiration for unbelief and that admiration ruins him, it burns him out. For instance, he emulates their style on the internet and that consumes him. Or he relishes their unlawful way of living and wants to slide towards it, even if just a tad.

909

When a characteristic of unbelief smears a Muslim's character, it makes him suffer a lot. When a little bit of unbelief smears one's character, sufferings and distress start. He feels suffocated and fidgety but doesn't know why. Actually, that distress stems from his sliding towards unbelief.

910

Unbelief is immensely troublesome, it is outrageously distressful. It tears one's heart out. Islam, on the other hand, is refreshing and easy. Both your head and your heart will be clear and sound.

911

When you abide by the easy religion of God, when you abide by Islam that is natural, pure belief, the religion of Mohammed (saas), you go to Heaven. But in the religion you make difficult with superstitions, in the religion you rarified and made impossible to live by, you go to Hell. Both your world and your Hereafter will be Hell. Why are you looking for such trouble?

912

God creates easiness for us and deems us successful in easiness. Those who look for difficulty are ruined; they are defeated, they are crushed. All those looking for traditionalist Islam, for orthodox Islam, are crushed. Who needs that; why would you change the immaculately radiant religion of God? Why do you raise difficulties while God has created religion of ease? How nice it is, live joyfully.

913

You might be doing something wrong if you have difficulty in living religion. It means you are not putting the Qur'an into practice. That is because there is no difficulty in the Qur'an, there is no difficulty in Islam. It is always easiness. Islam is the religion of easiness.

914

People resisted every Messenger sent by God. What draws God's wrath is that all the Messengers are very honest, sincere and righteous. And that those people fiercely stand aloof from them, even though they are well aware of the fact that they are mistaken and are on the wrong path and that the Messengers of God are honest, sincere and veracious. In that case, what they do deserves troubles so God plagues them.

915

When God's Name is not recited, that region, that city, that country would become barren. What comes in its place? Hunger and economic crisis. What comes in its place? Terror. Those two dangers. Is God's Name invoked in Greece? No. Is His Name invoked in other countries? For instance, is His Name invoked in the US? What happens then? Hunger comes. Hunger enwraps them all in those vast lands. Terror, meaning fear, comes following that.

916

God does not tell us to "worship Him," but He tells us to "sincerely worship Him." God lays that as a condition in any case. Love is given as a blessing reserved only for those sincere ones.

917

Making mention of the blessings of God is crucial. One would become egoistical and abnormal when he forgets to do that, his heart would not be in anything he does: May God forbid. That is why God tells us to invoke His Name. Invoking the Name of God would bring relief and beauty to one's heart.

918

When one gives a present to another, if it stings thinking how expensive it is, that feeling comes from lack of love. But even if the present is expensive, if giving a present pleases him thinking that his brother would like that present and be very happy about it, that would be a beauty, an attitude that God would appreciate.

919

In the beginning of the verses of the Qur'an, God's Names Rahman and Rahim are recited. "Bismillahirrahmanirrahim". Rahman and Rahim, God; meaning God, the One Who knows and shows love very well and the One Who wants love from us. "Rahman" because He is the Protective, He is the One Who watches over, He is the One Who forgives, He is the One Who wants good for people.

920

Love is a very engrossing, a very amazing feeling. It is not like eating or drinking. It is the most pleasing blessing. If one asks, "Would you prefer eating or love?" It is love. If one asks, " Would you like us to give you a yacht or love?" The answer is love. What good would come out of a yacht? It is just a huge wooden thing. Think about going aboard in the middle of the sea? What would you do if there is no love? What good would that do? Or else let us imagine that you are given a castle but there is no love in it; that castle would turn into a giant prison. It would do no good.

921

What does forgiving mean? It serves love. Without forgiveness you become angry, you get cross, you reproach others and severe your connections with the concerned. When one severs connections with one person and then the other, what happens? He remains alone. This is the disaster cast upon the whole world. This time they start keeping dogs and cats at their homes as their sole companions. This is what happens without love, without heeding the Qur'an.

922

When the time comes and a Muslim becomes a martyr, that is what God loves the most; that is the highest form of love. That is because it means one gives his life for God. Isn't one's life precious? He says, "My Lord, You made me love my life, I love You more than my life. My life is Yours. I am Yours." This is what it means. That is why Almighty God keeps martyrs in a separate place and does not make them die. They do not taste death.

923

Martyrdom is what God likes the most. God finds the greatest love in that. But a Muslim should will for that, not just randomly but should sincerely and wholeheartedly will for that praying "My Lord, I ask martyrdom from You."

924

Some people never accept patience and ordeals, yet ask directly for blessings. That is unacceptable. You can neither attain Heaven like that nor attain the good pleasure of God. This is a place of trial not a place of fun. Almighty God says, "If We had desired to have some amusement, We would have derived it from Our Presence, but We did not do that." Heaven is the place of amusement, there is no such thing in this world.

925

The US should become religious again; the current situation is not acceptable. When they are religious, peace comes upon them. When they are irreligious an enormous exiguousness and inauspiciousness comes upon them.

926

When one is on the path of God, God gives him richness, abundance and beauty. But also accept the sufferings on that path, not only the blessings. It is not acceptable otherwise. You should accept the patience; accept the ordeals. Then God would rain down His blessings upon you.

927

A Muslim could be poor or rich. Our Prophet was poor in the beginning and God says, "Did He not find you impoverished and enrich you?" Muslims are patient in times of difficulty and they are good- mannered in times of richness. Our Prophet lived as an orphan for years and all his childhood passed in poverty.

928

It is amazing that they call every Prophet "crazy". Without exception, they do that to all of them and they mock all of them. They call them crazy in any case. Yet they will learn who is rational and who is crazy.

929

When they are made fun of during their preaching they say, "I am demoralized." They have no idea about destiny, they have no idea about the Qur'an. Thank God for seeing such a miracle. Be amazed; your good deeds are increasing while their sins are increasing. What is your goal? Is it not to attain good deeds? You then say that you are sad. Why should one be sad because his good deeds have increased?

930

Some people communicate religion but they say, "I am communicating religion yet they are making fun of me." What kind of a preacher are you? You do not know the first thing about the Qur'an? You hit your feet on the floor and it makes a sound right? When you communicate, they would of course make fun of you; this is the law, this is the law of God. If you are preaching religion they will of course make fun of you. Why are you surprised about it?

931

The blather of unbelief is so difficult that it is a trial in this world. It necessitates patience, that is for one. Secondly it necessitates attention. From which point that impertinent attitude is to be refuted should be investigated separately. These are not always from the same point of view, they all have to be proven with verses and then a rationale should be propounded.

932

The whole of the Qur'an is based on love. But if you directly present love, you would be entering a great beauty right from the center. That is why a way of explaining aimed directly on love, rationality and spirit is needed. Whichever verse you open and read you will see that they all aim for love.

933

God says; "Make allowances for people, command what is right, and turn away from the ignorant." What happens when we make allowances for people? The obstacles before love is removed. Love unites. "… and turn away from the ignorant." Ignorance depresses people. Ignorance suffocates love. When you turn away from the ignorant you would be protecting love. "Command what is wrong." What happens when you command right? Love increases, love develops.

934

You forgive, you pardon and thus remove the block that stands in front of love. When you forgive you would be removing the wall in front of love.

935

If you protect the needy, what would they feel for you? They would love you. What would be the first feeling they would feel? Love. For instance, you give them a gift and they thank you. What is thanks? Their eyes sparkle. Why? Out of love. Love would be formed in their hearts towards you instantly. Our Prophet (saas) says "...give presents to each other as that increases mutual love." What is the goal here? Love.

936

Fear of God constitutes the mainframe of love. You show patience because of fear of God, you show compassion, you become helpful and generous because of fear of God. All these form the mainframe of love.

937

Look at the Qur'an as a whole; love prevails throughout the whole of the Qur'an. The Qur'an lays the ground for love. The Qur'an settles the foundation of love on a very steady ground with the fear of God, with the love of God and the threat of Hell.

938

What does "salam" mean? It means love. " It means no harm will come to you from me." Then what does it mean? It means keep your heart at ease and in comfort, be happy. Look at the origin of all these words, all these expressions, there is love, deep in the origin of all these words.

939

What does saying, "Oh my Lord, I thank You a lot," means? It means, "I do love You a lot and I am expressing my love to You." It means, "I am happy." What does saying I am happy, mean? It means I am happy because I love You.

940

Thanking God, saying “Alhamdulillah” is a way of showing love. "Oh Lord I do thank You," you say. What does thanking mean? If there is no love inside that, it loses its whole meaning. The meaning of it will be completed only if there is love in it.

941

“Rahman and Rahim." These Names are all about love. The whole aim of the Qur'an is love. The goal of the fear of God is love. Those who fear God pave the way for love. Those who fear God would easily love and be loved yet those who do not fear God would neither be easily loved nor love.

942

They imagine that preaching religion means talking and writing a lot. Instead of doing that, show your love for 15 minutes and it would be 15 million times more effective.

943

Radicals assume that talking in an all-knowing manner would disseminate Islam. Islam would never be disseminated in this manner. People would like to see your sincere love. They would want to see your clean-cut clothes, your cleanliness, your liveliness, your effort to beautify life. These things show Islam applied in practice. When they see them, they embrace Islam as you tell them.

944

Love is a crucial subject matter. We look into politics and only see hatred and rage. The goal of life is love; so why do they not prioritize love?

945

Our Prophet (saas) gave all his attention to love and he thus became very successful very influential. Our Prophet's power of influence came from his love. Prophet Joseph's, Prophet Solomon's and Prophet Abraham's power of influence came from their love as well.

946

Radicals constantly talk and speak about superstitions. What is their aim? They have no love inside. All they talk about is how to beat a man, how to behead someone, how to humiliate women and that is it. They are philosophizing on how to hate each other. There is no love in radicals.

947

Everything is beautiful in Heaven. God puts lovers there. People there are beautiful, plants are beautiful, flowers are beautiful. The whole purpose is love, God's whole intent is love.

948

Imitation, false love is most horrible; it is something God doesn't like at all. Hypocrite women and men, unbeliever women and men, cruel women and men are masters in this false, imitated love.

949

What is the sole intent of Almighty God? To love and to be loved. But to be loved how? To be loved sincerely and wholeheartedly not with false pretenses. That is why people always look for sincere love, why the whole world looks for sincere love.

950

"Muslims are friends of one another." What does “friend” mean? It means the one who protects and watches over the other like parents, like brothers do.

951

Variance means conflict; it means dispute and disunity. I mean that variance means an inability to come to a common decision, to have a common religion; it means an inability to live a sincere and righteous life and it means ignoring the commands of God. Satan loves variance, there cannot be any variance among Muslims.

952

The PKK is openly a state within a state. If there is a parallel state, they are that, the PKK is the parallel state. They built their structure, founded their courts, became a state in those lands. They say that they will be founding their own parliaments, their own armies. They even have their own constitution.

953

The PKK should not intend to fight ISIS. They should pull themselves together and break out from this Darwinist, materialist system. They should believe in God and say, "La ilaha illa Allah Muhammed Ar-Rasul Allah." ISIS will play havoc with them all. I am saying this in advance. They should listen to me, come to have faith in God and pull themselves together.

954

"... Enjoin the right, and forbid the wrong..." this is the duty of a Muslim. Muslims criticize Muslims, appreciate each other's nice characteristics and remind them of their shortcomings.

955

Man is unbridled in seeing himself as self-sufficient. One should not see himself as self-sufficient. He should constantly criticize himself. He should criticize himself openly and thank those who criticize him. He should say, “May God be pleased with you”.

956

God is All-Knowing. He possesses endless knowledge. We simply are given drops from God's knowledge as a blessing from Almighty God. Or else we have nothing. Consequently no one could claim to be wise or all-knowing; all men are ignorant.

957

The Qur'an protects those in need. It protects the poor and wants goods to be distributed. The Qur'an commands social justice. That is why if Islam prevails, there will be abundance and wealth all around. Many people do not know how perfect, glorious and fundamentally solution providing this social justice aspect of Islam is.

958

When unbelievers attack Muslims, they first attack goods and possessions. They try to hit from there so that they would have no staying power. Whereas a Muslim would eat only grass but serve Islam and the Qur'an no matter what.

959

Muslims should love one another. If they do not love each other what good would possessions do? Let us say that you have piled up goods everywhere, let us say you have stocked oil here, sugar and jam there. You will simply gain weight, die and nothing good would come from it. You should distribute that wealth and give everyone.

960

The morality in Islam which necessitates distributing and giving alms abundantly does away with this corruption, this trouble completely. Since there is no interest, the economy ramps up and an enormous abundance comes about.

961

Since egoism and selfishness prevail in the current capitalist system, a great majority of people hoard their money. They store it away thinking “just in case”. The goods produced by factories are not bought; when they are not bought, no further production can be made. Workers cannot be paid and it brings about death everywhere.

962

God doesn't give you money for you to save it, but to use it. Economic crises do not break out when money is used. When money is hoarded, an economic crisis starts. When people get egoistical and selfish, when they keep their money at home or somewhere else locked up, life stops and so does the economy.

963

A martyr enjoys martyrdom when he becomes a martyr. That is why they say "he drank the sherbet of martyrdom." Because it is sweet and the lower-self enjoys it.

964

Almighty God says, "If you abide by God you will be happy." What does this mean? If you do not abide by God, you cannot be happy. What kind of unhappiness is this? You suffer, you live in fear, you feel restless, you become apprehensive. You writhe in pain. Life will turn into a living hell for you.

965

If one gets married simply to reproduce, he would be like an animal. If one goes to school only for his own interests, he would be an egotistical, ordinary person. But if one lives for the good pleasure of God in all things, he would have a lofty and superior goals. Then Almighty God gives him a clear mind, plentitude, facility and beauty.

966

Being sincere is living only for God. For, instance when one gets married, he gets married for God. When one opens a place of business , he does so for God. When one goes to school, he should do so for God. When one eats, he should eat for the good pleasure of God. Then his life will be plentiful and beautiful.

967

In the Qur'an Almighty God says, "I will make you prevail in the world." For that reason Muslims should strive to convey beauty, love, peace and brotherhood to the whole world and communicate the Name of God, the fear of God and a love for God to the whole world.

968

Muslims should embrace the whole world. They should aim for the whole world. I mean a Muslim should see the world as a village. He should see it as if it is his own village. That is because God gives Muslims the world as a whole.

969

God loves to be asked for forgiveness; He loves forgiving. But if one makes a mistake, commits a sin and then refrains from apologizing, God takes revenge for that. But if one seeks forgiveness, Almighty God says, "you will find Me forgiving."

970

Almighty God wants us only to behave sincerely and honestly. When one plays games and acts insincerely God ruins him and gives him troubles.

971

A pharmaceutical factory writes how to use a drug on its package; otherwise, one might use that drug wrongly and might get sick. God, Who created us together with this world, sent us ready information on how to use this world. These are the Holy Books; the Psalms, the Torah, the Gospel, the Qur'an and the other pages sent before.

972

We will not let Turkey be divided. We would never let that happen no matter what; we will prevent that through laws and the legal system. Things that they could never imagine would happen if they attempt to do this. They should be well aware of that fact. We will never let anyone do such treachery.

973

Islam is beauty, love and kindness. It is virtue, quality, arts and aesthetics. A Muslim is the one with the highest quality. If you ask what form of life is the most reasonable, the most beautiful that one's mind could perceive, the answer is Islam.

974

May Almighty God wrap the whole world with His radiance. May our Lord manifest Himself with His Name 'Al-Hadi' (The Guide), inshaAllah. May He damn the antichrist and ruin him, insha'Allah. May God annihilate the system of the antichrist, insha'Allah.

975

May God wrap us all around with radiance. May God make us radiant. May He give us guidance. May He open our minds. May God protect us from the evils of satan. May God protect us from wickedness. May God grant the feeling of safety to our hearts. May God make us wealthy. May He make us strong. May God make Islam prevail. May God show us the Mahdi. May He make Mahdi (pbuh) appear. May God make us students of the Mahdi (pbuh) and Jesus Messiah (pbuh).

976

Almighty God wants to be loved. We do love God greatly. May He love us as well, insha'Allah. May we be the servants of God that He loves.

977

Bigots are chatty. They know very well to deceive. They know demagoguery as well. They know fraud, slyness and deceitfulness very well. They smile to your face but they are treacherous. They systematically make plans. In the end God plagues them. Their plots hit them in the end.

978

The greatest trouble of bigots is jealousy and envy. Right now, in the End Times, the reason behind this great corruption is jealousy towards the Mahdi (pbuh). Appearances of false Mahdis, their clashing with each other, their trying to forcefully declare people who do not claim to be the Mahdi as the Mahdi are all manifestations of this jealousy.

979

Hatred against the Children of Israel as a whole would bring about grave inauspiciousness and troubles. Feeling hatred towards the line of the prophets is something God dislikes. You can feel hatred towards the cruel ones; why do you hate the innocent ones? But they discard everyone as a whole. That is not acceptable.

980

There is an unnecessary and irrational hatred towards Israel. The fact is however that such hatred would bring about troubles and inauspiciousness. With that hatred you would be attacking the related verses of the Qur'an. Pull yourself together. While not all of the Children of Israel are sacred, but by making a generalization, you would be taking on all those immaculate and innocent ones, those Muslims, those God-fearing ones as well. You would be contradicting the prophets. God would then give troubles upon you; pull yourself together, come to your senses.

981

A jealous, dangerous man would take everything you tell him to his evil memory, to his evil friends to use later on. That is because such people are connected with the devil. You are talking, but do you know to whom you are talking to? You would be drained if you saw the truth. You are telling those to the devil. Satan appears before you in the form of a person and you are talking to him. You should not talk to them; that is because they would be a trouble for you. But if that person is your friend, if he is a Muslim, he would be happy for you when you tell him about the beautiful things you have.

982

When you talk about something beautiful, they [unbelievers] become jealous. That is why such things are not told to sick people. It is only said to those sincere, righteous Muslims. They would feel relieved with such news but you should not speak of such good news to those jealous, dangerous people with the characteristics of hypocrites. Refraining from saying such things to such people would be an act of worship. You should hold your tongue, be silent and talk about other things.

983

If Christians say, "God has a son," the Qur'an corrects their mistake. If Christians adopt what the Qur'an corrects, they would then be on the right path. Almighty God says "It is all okay if they perform their prayers, give their alms and avoid ascribing partners to God." Christians would then become Muslims as well.

984

The Names “Rahman, Rahim” are refreshing. They express refreshment. But in the Name "Al-Kahhar" love is hidden. God damns the unbelievers and saves Muslims. He takes Muslims' revenge; God takes the revenge of all those He loves. The Name Al-Kahhar is also a sign of love. His damning unbelievers stems from God's love for Muslims. That is why there is a hidden love in it.

985

“Thank” is a word of love. What does thanking God mean? It means my Lord, I do love You very much, I do love You madly. I extend my endless thanks to You. This is the meaning of hamd (thanks).

986

Ar-Rahman and Ar-Rahim (Most Compassionate and All-Merciful). Both of those Names express love. Love is in the origin of both of those Names. Ar-Rahim means the One Who protects with love, the One Who looks after, the One Who is always after goodness, the One Who always creates with goodness.

987

If Iran and Turkey circumvent Kandil, there would be no need for armed conflict, they would all come out. That is because they cannot possibly pile up three-months' food. They would have to surrender. The government should do this.

988

Mount Kandil is occupied right now; those scums are using that mountain as a post. They are shooting and martyring our soldiers, our police officers, Muslims. Turkey needs to come to terms with Iran, with the Iranian government and enter Kandil. They should clean out all of those caves with laws and legal system. If they only circumvent the mountain, no one would be left there in the mountains after a three months blockade.

989

Radicals prohibit everything beautiful. They preach everything that is atrocious, everything that is difficult. Their encouragement about crying is unbelievable. God refers to it as a characteristic of unbelievers. "They will cry a lot and you will laugh," God says to Muslims. And they turn everything around and tell Muslims "Do not laugh, cry a lot!" How could one's mind and soul endure this? Go do sports, eat, drink, laugh, perform your religious observances, beautify everywhere. Let the arts prevail everywhere.

990

Radicals are about to wipe the beautiful religion of Islam off the face of this world, because of the religion of their ancestors. They have ruined Muslims as well. Everywhere around the world people are being cut up, beaten, abused, insulted and spit upon. Some behead others, some drag others on the ground behind moving cars, they riddle others with bullets, they throw barrel bombs at them. There is an inconceivable system of persecution. These will all come to an end if and when they turn towards the Qur'an.

991

When people wash their hearts with religion; it becomes a radiance and light upon them. But many people imagine that religion takes their lives away. As a matter of fact, irreligiousness takes lives away, fundamentally. Everything turns into a burden for them. Food turns into a trouble for them, their cars, their homes, their wives, their friends, their schools, everything they have turns into a burden. But if they are faithful their wives would turn into blessings, their friends would be blessings, their homes would become their place of worship, their lives would be radiant, everything around them would be radiant and their hearts would be full of relief.

992

God bestows better means, more beautiful blessings to those who are more devout and that is visible. But of course Muslims will be patient. I mean Muslims should see the beauty beneath the ordeals and the beauty beneath the blessings.

993

God gives abundance and plenty to the countries with sincerely devout people. If they remain aloof to religion, God gives them troubles and inauspiciousness. This is valid for each and every individual, for each and every individual person.

994

Religion is a blessing. A greater part of people- may God forbid- regard religion as if it is an affliction. Actually, religion is the ornament of the world, it is the joy of life, it is the light of the mind, a relief of the heart, it is a divine gift.

995

One makes a mistake, commits a sin and throws himself, he suffers. This is not what God wants from you. He simply says "repent and go on with your life." He doesn't say, "Cast yourself down, devastate yourself." Such are abnormal acts; such are the acts of the idolaters. In the end God is the One Who makes you do that mistake. There is good in that. You simply will not repeat it and that is it. You will make up your mind, won't do it again.

996

Sleep is the weakness of this world. Every day after a certain hour one feels sleepy. They go and lay down to die and arise from death hours later. They bathe, they eat, again they feel sleepy at night. The time to die comes and they go die again. In the morning they arise from the dead again. Dying and arising from the dead, dying and arising from the dead, one's whole life goes on like this. In the end, they die for real and then arise from the dead in another world.

997

The Sun and the shadow are bound to each other with amazing laws. They are intertwined with the laws of God. The Sun doesn't have light, there is no light outside; it is pitch dark. Consequently there is no shadow. Shadow and light are created inside our brains separately. Colors are created inside the brain one by one. There is no light outside. Yellow, red, green; all the colors are created specifically, created inside the brain.

998

Shadow and light are created separately. That is because light is created inside the brain. There is no light outside. There is no color outside either. Light is created inside one's brain. It is pitch black outside. Consequently there is no shadow outside. There is no shadow if there is no light. That means shadows are created separately inside the brain. God says that He creates them both separately.

999

One says ,"When I make a mistake, my good conscience disturbs me, it makes me unable to breath." That stems from letting Satan suffocate you. Why is there the need for that, my brother? You simply put your trust in God and that is it, you repent to God. What does repentance mean? You hope God will accept your repentance. Then, what does being suffocated mean? That would mean that you do not trust God. If you've made a mistake, you've made the mistake in your destiny. Did you decide to never to do it again? You did. If you are determined about this, that takes care of it.

1000

Man has a great power of resistance. He orders his brain and doesn't do what Satan orders. For instance, he would serve Islam. The lower-self says, "I am exhausted!" a Muslim responds to his lower-self saying, "You create that tiredness with prompting," and says, "What exhaustion are you talking about? You would be jumping up and down if you were told that you would be given five thousand liras. You are lying, it is not true." Even if the lower-self says, "I am spent, I am tired, I am about to drop down," a Muslim would say, "If there were something in it for you, you would go insane and all energetic."

1001

Satan drags one into a sentimental mode, poisoning his mind, making his brain numb, dragging him into a drunken state. He hands over the rope to the devil and Satan drags him around as ever it wants. A Muslim should break off that rope instantly, saying, "What is going on? What are you doing? I am breaking off this rope!" and hold on to the rope of God. God's unbreakable, unseverable rope.

1002

If one yields to Satan, either resentment or rage would drag him around. I mean those feelings lay hold of him and drags him around. A Muslim should rip apart that claw with a strong blow. He should not accept being dragged around. Being dragged around like that is so humiliating.

1003

For a Muslim, losing one's temper is very bad. Rage takes over one and drags him around as if dragging around an animal. The man indulges in that feeling and disgraces himself. That is not acceptable. One needs to use his mind.

1004

Before all else, a Muslim should know to resist abnormal things. For instance, he has to know how to resist rage. Yielding to rage is an animalistic instinct. Keeping one's temper is a humane superiority.

1005

One should not knowingly push something, insist on something. What has happened would always be good for a Muslim no matter what. It is something defined in destiny. But one needs to hold on to reason.

1006

Using one's wit means being in sincere connection with God and trying to see the signs of God knowing in which points Satan would distort one's mind, without getting agitated. That is because God is the One Who leads the mind. One would differentiate the wrong and the dangerous when one abides by his conscience; God inspires him, God makes him feel what the right choice is.

1007

Almighty God gives permission to the satan as a requisite of the trial in this world. With this wisdom, people are perfectly tested. The lower self matures in the struggle against the satan and it becomes perfect.

1008

What is meant by jihad in the verses of the Qur'an is struggling; an intellectual struggle, an effort, all sorts of activities. People tend to take it as if it means "hanging people and chopping them up." The fact is however, jihad is the name of the effort put on the path of God.

1009

Even if something goes seemingly wrong, a Muslim should know that there is good in that. Some say, "Something went wrong." If you put your trust completely in God, whatever happens would be for the good.

1010

Some people get into a weird romanticism, a weird state of mind when one talks about religion. God should be remembered with a rational attitude.

1011

Being patient and trusting in God are two important characteristics that God loves and likes. What does trusting in God mean? It means a Muslim will be faced with great incidents yet he will always put his trust in God and be patient. He will not worry, he will not be sad, he will not be afraid.

1012

The time for the promise of God is right now. I mean there are about a hundred years until the Last Day. There is no time, other than this century, for the global triumph of the moral values of Islam. That is why Freemasonry and the Templars should decide, the Sanhedrin should also decide. The global deep state should also decide. Otherwise, the world will be destroyed completely. The time for Islamic Unity has come.

1013

Eyes are miraculous organs. They claim that they come into being as ordinary organs as a result of mutations. An ordinary process cannot be the cause of their existence. An ordinary process can only make you blind. Mutations can only make you unable to walk. Mutations can only cause blindness, deafness. They can only destroy existent systems and do nothing else.

1014

God demands piety in the real sense. Or else it is not like thinking that there is a social life and there is religion lived right on the edge; there is no such thing. How could there be something to call a social life? Religion rules every aspect of life. Religion rules everything in a Muslim's life. What does a social life means? You can go anywhere on Earth and only the good pleasure of God prevails in everything you do.

1015

Loving God is both pleasing and pleasant. Loving God brings facility and relief to the heart and the pleasantness of that in a person's life could be seen rapidly. It shows itself from the regularity and order in one's life.

1016

God creates millions, billions, trillions of wonders in this world, so much so that it is innumerable. God wants those blessings appreciated, He wants the artistry He created to be seen and appreciated individually. God says "If you tried to number God's blessings, you could never count them."

1017

Our Prophet's (saas) power of faith exhilarates the companions. Having a person with deep faith among them is an amazing feeling. That is why people love sheikhs, sheikhs of religious orders deeply. They love them because they have strong faith; at least people see them as people of strong faith.

1018

Death is not something challenging for a Muslim. It is like waking up from a sleep. God says "easily"; that means easily in the perfect sense of the word, not in a half measure. For instance, if one suffers a little, if it is hard on him, you wouldn't call it easily. Only zero hardship can be called “easily”.

1019

God tests us with a beautiful trial. Actually that is also a beautiful education. In the end maturity, kindness and a personality suitable for the morality of Heaven develop.

1020

If one finds it discouraging to show patience, he would face lots of difficulties. Then one would have to tolerate this. The fact is however, toleration is something, showing patience is something else. Patience is an act of worship done with pleasure. It is an act of worship done readily.

1021

Something happens and we act patiently. But we also reinforce our patience phase by phase. What is this, then? This is education. An education for what? An education for Heaven. God chooses a handful of Muslims and educates them here. When they are directly put in Heaven, what happened to the Prophet Adam (pbuh) happens. It doesn't work that way, that is to say. With the education given the mind settles, the personality develops and one starts appreciating the blessings of God.

1022

God tests people extensively. The trial in this world is not an ordinary trial. There is a weighty trial, a weighty education. This is not solely a trial; actually it is education, only the name of it is “trial”.

1023

The wisdom of the Qur'an is crucially important. One needs to concentrate on it. Or else you can read many verses in ten minutes if you like. You can read the Qur'an rapidly but the Qur'an is a Book that should be read in an orderly manner and by pondering upon it, by unveiling the wisdom of it step by step.

1024

Unbelievers cannot do anything. For instance, the PKK wants to do something and God casts troubles on them. Hitler attempted to do something and God casts troubles on him. Mussolini tried and God ruined him. Stalin and Lenin wanted to do something and God ruined them all. God says that He would ruin all of them, and that they can never be successful.

1025

People with a superiority complex like and overestimate unbelievers thinking that something would come out of them. Actually as they diverge into unbelief, inauspiciousness, troubles and ugliness enwrap them and they cannot find anything else in unbelief. What would come out of that gutter? Only the sludge of the gutter and nothing else.

1026

Feeling a sense of [unjustified] superiority causes snobbery and leads to impertinence. The tragic thing is that they become miserably senseless. For instance, they start lying swiftly and foolishly. They start talking irrationally, saying things that even the most foolish people wouldn't say. Such people have an astounding anarchy in their souls, an insane anarchy and they become prone to unbelief.

1027

In the Qur'an, God says "We tested you with many trials" (Surah Ta ha; 40) to the Prophet Moses (pbuh). 'We have tested you,' God says. And then he (Prophet Moses (pbuh)) becomes a prophet with firm resolve. If the things he survived were ordinary things, he would have been an ordinary person. But since he has been tested extraordinarily, he became an extraordinary personality.

1028

Materialists say, "If God exists, He should turn this world into Heaven. Why are there all those troubles and pains?" Look at the reasoning here. Haven't you come here to be tested? Since you are not here to have fun, since you are here to be tested, of course there will be pain and troubles. Of course there will be hardship. How are you going to be tested without those hardships?

1029

It is astonishing that even though people suffer extensively, they fail to realize the importance of religion. Actually a normal devout person lives a very peaceful, a very beautiful life.

1030

We have always encouraged the Republican People's Party to be religious and they have proceeded on that path very nicely. They made great moves towards the religious lines. But if they put a damper on every move they make and say negative things about them every step of the way, then a portion of them might have to assume a negative attitude against religion and that would not be good. They can be criticized about every other matter, but I believe it would be wrong if they are criticized about the topic of religion. That is because their becoming religious is for the benefit of all Muslims.

1031

Leaving an artist to his own means during his difficulties is a lack of good conscience. First of all, an artist should not struggle to make a living. They should be provided a perfect life. The state has many means, so these means should be at their disposal so that they can comfortably perform their art. If you force them into a life struggling to make a living, how could they perform? How could they perform under these conditions?

1032

The trouble is not in the presidential system itself, but in federalism. Or else we have no problem with the presidential system.

1033

Islam cannot be preached with the traditionalist Orthodox understanding of Islam. They put impertinent men on television and they talk about their own superstitions with the mindset of the 1930's and 1940's – I exonerate religion related topics. Such people can only address their own peer group with their mindset. The youth, on the other hand, watch these people with astonishment and repulsion. Actually neither their culture, nor their knowledge is suitable to communicate religion.

1034

Religion is quite easy and plain. There is love, compassion, friendship, brotherhood, forgiveness, generosity, self-sacrifice, bravery. How nice generosity is; for instance, there is a person you love and you see that he doesn't have anything. You act generously and it makes him happy and pleased. That would do you good as well.

1035

The religion presented by the radicals is like Hell. There is no music, no paintings, no fun, no love, no friendship, no companionship, no nothing. There are only troubles, impertinence, irrationality, superstitions and nonsensical beliefs.

1036

Life turns into a nightmare if one remains aloof to religion, to Islam, to fear of God, to love of God. They do not say a single word about God. Just say "God" for once. Would they cause you any pain? Just say "God" for once - nothing would happen. They do not say it and the result is an inconceivable distress, an inconceivable tension. There is zero love. There is nothing in them to call love; love is extinct for them. They have no respect either; they have completely lost the feeling of respect.

1037

How could men come into being out of muddy water? Elephants, giraffes, birds, storks, olives, orange trees, tomatoes, peppers; they say that they all have come about from muddy water. Well then, let us put all manner of chemical substances inside a barrel and do whatever you like, let us wait from father to son, in front of that barrel for millions of years. No giraffes, no men, no tomatoes, no peppers, no grapes, nothing would ever come out from that barrel.

1038

God created you with a beautiful creation and give you five senses; and you then say, "You came into being from muddy waters, you came from microbes and there is no God." In the name of a so-called science, you fundamentally deny God, Who created all these fruits, all these vegetables, all these animals and plants. That brings about grave disasters. It brings about ruin. Making the system of the Mahdi instrumental, God does not ruin Turkey.

1039

Darwinism should be taught in detail in school but the scientific response to it should also be given. Let us simply take fossils and display them in front of classes for students to see. That is it; we do not want anything else. Scientifically, it is not possible for a protein molecule to come about by coincidence; they should say this out loud.

1040

In order to grasp the wisdom of the Qur'an, it should be read slowly and in an orderly fashion.

1041

Very rare, elect people, those who are specifically been inspired by God, those who are taken into a deep sleep approach the Mahdi (pbuh). Just like the People of the Cave. Such a person would not be able to go anywhere even if he wants to, because it is in his destiny. The will of a genuine student of the Mahdi would not be able to leave him. But the other ones cannot become his students even if they want to.

1042

Surat Al-Kahf is a Surah that directly refers to the system of the Mahdi. It entirely explains the system of the Mahdi. But it does so with symbols, with a covert manner of telling. I mean it doesn't do so openly, with overt wording. Those rational ones, those with profundity, those who have the power of reflection will decipher the secrets in the Surat, those symbols by the leave of God, with the revelation of God.

1043

Almighty God creates life in a state of sleep; the Qur'an refers to this deep secret. People do not know that they are in a state of sleep in this world. Actually, they all are in a dream right now, they all are dreaming. Some of them, for instance philosophy researchers, realize this fact in a state of awe and dismay.

1044

Breaking away from the unbelievers, breaking away from their culture, makes people's minds clean, impeccable and lucid. Many people cannot completely break away from unbelief. They act half as a Muslim and half in disbelief. They live in the culture of unbelievers.

1045

Not being self-sacrificing is a grave lack of conscience, it is a lack of moral turpitude. For instance, those Syrians who took refuge in our country are inoffensive people. Of course sheltering them brings about a financial burden and difficulties but it is worth the sacrifice. Let our money be spent instead of watching those children and households be annihilated, see them tortured and in suffering.

1046

Muslims become handsome with faith, they become beautiful with trial. If that trial is taken away, Muslims would be devastated, may God forbid. I mean if one does not come across any difficulties, that means they acquire no good merits. We came to this world to be tested; that is why Almighty God says, "Or did you suppose that you would enter the Garden without facing the same as those who came before you?"

1047

It will be a grave mistake for Europe to take on ISIS. They cannot succeed with murder, with killing. They should search for the Mahdi, that is our advice to them. Salvation lies in that. It won't work any other way.

1048

In the hadiths it has been foretold that ISIS, which is referred to as "...those with black banners, black clothes" will prevail all over the region. Western forces cannot resist this destiny. The only solution is ISIS's allegiance to Imam Mahdi (pbuh).

1049

ISIS will pledge allegiance to the Mahdi and then peace will come. With the appearance of Imam Mahdi (pbuh), the bloodshed will come to an end, the suffering and violence will come to an end and terror will cease, there will be no more bullets, weapons and bombs.

1050

Imam Mahdi (pbuh) is the only force that will put an end to ISIS. According to the hadiths, those with "black banners" will abide by Imam Mahdi (pbuh) and thus ISIS will come to an end. Other than that, they cannot stop ISIS, let me tell you this much. It is not in their destiny.

1051

There were no sects at the time of our Prophet (saas), at the time of the companions. There were no Wahabis, no Sunnis, no Shias. There was only Islam as commanded in the Qur'an.

1052

All statesmen in the world should abide by the Qur'an. That is a necessity for politicians to be reasonable and coherent. Have a look at the countries all over the world; you see that coups take place in some of them and people are being executed in others. A majority of them are unstable. They persecute their people.

1053

Those who carefully read the Qur'an cover to cover become very wise. They become very stable and talk very reasonably.

1054

The Qur'an is the book of reason. Actually the Qur'an is the book of love and reason. When one abides by the Qur'an, he becomes wise, reasonable and balanced.

1055

When God opens the heart of a person to Islam, radiance comes to that person's mind and body. He becomes very stable and reasonable. Otherwise people become unstable. Of course such people rarely are calm as well but most of them are unstable. They cannot think reasonably.

1056

We talk to them reciting verses and say, "That is what God says in the Qur'an". They reply saying, "This is not what the hodjas we know are saying." Why do you not trust the Qur'an? You do not trust the Book of God. They insistently search for the religion of their forefathers in the Qur'an. They refuse anything else if they cannot find it in the Qur'an. The fact is, however, religion is learned directly from the Qur'an, not from forefathers.

1057

There is no such thing to call the success of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). Everything is created by God. God makes Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) instrumental in this. Meaning the triumph of the moral values of Islam and Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) are created separately.

1058

Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) does not have an independent power. All power belongs to God: Jesus Messiah (pbuh) does not have an independent power either, because all power belongs to God. People sometimes develop such a polytheistic mindset and imagine that Hazrat Mahdi has an independent, separate power. Actually his first breath and his last breath are all defined in destiny.

1059

You cannot stop ISIS: This is their destiny. This has been foretold in the hadiths explicitly. They will stop when the Mahdi (pbuh) tells them "stop". As for the solution, they should go search for the Mahdi. There is no other solution, let me tell you this much. They cannot resist destiny; they are struggling in vain.

1060

Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is the solution of ISIS. They've been saying that as well. "We will continue our efforts like this until the appearance of the Mahdi (pbuh). But when the Mahdi appears, we will pledge allegiance to him and we will abide by him," they say.

1061

The Call to Prayer should be recited all over the world, in the US and in Europe. That would bring about abundance to these countries, the inauspiciousness upon them would dissipate. For instance, if they were to recite the Call to Prayer in New York, abundance would enfold the whole city.

1062

It is not the municipality that builds the highways; God is the One Who builds them. Those roads are inside our minds. You see those roads inside your brain. When you get into your car, you see continuous images of the road inside your brain. Who then created those roads? God created all of them. That is a scientific fact.

1063

What we see from the verses is that there is a possibility even for Pharaoh to believe if he is preached to. Then communists, PKK militants, atheists, everyone should be told about religion. How? With a lenient, kind and respectful manner.

1064

One worries about how he is going to wake up for the morning prayers, he troubles himself with it. Constantly whining, he says, "How am I to wake up that early?" Yet if you were to say, "We will give you five thousand liras in the morning without any provision", he would not sleep, he would not even blink until the morning. If you were to tell him that he should wash his face fifty times, and wash his arms fifty times and his feet fifty times and that he will be given five thousand liras every morning, millions of people would line up to do this. See that God promises eternal Heaven, yet he fails to do as God commands, because he does not believe in it: If he believed, he would have done that.

1065

Being slack in talking about God is an unlawful act. This is an affliction upon the Muslim world. They do not feel the need to preach religion. They say, "There is the Religious Affairs Directorate and they are doing this anyway. Why should we preach religion?" The fact is, however, preaching religion is a religious duty upon all Muslims.

1066

No matter how attractive a person is, if God does not bestow love upon that person, they could not be loved. God is the One Who creates that attractiveness, and He is the One Who makes it loved.

1067

My friends and I have prepared the ideological foundation for the right wing. It is not possible for a rightist government to come to power without the respective ideology. What did we do? We have fundamentally undermined Darwinism and materialism with scientific proof. The left wing died in Turkey, scientifically and philosophically, and the right came to power only after that. Or else it would not be possible for a rightist party to take a single step forward if Darwinism had remained very robust.

1068

One criticizes those he loves. Friends criticize; the criticisms coming from a friend might feel bitter, but they are like medicine.

1069

If there is criticism, it means that a country is free. If it is not possible to criticize anything, it is not possible to live in that country. There should be a lot of critics. That is a sign of health, a sign of beauty and liveliness. If no one makes a sound, it means death; that is a sign of death. Opposing journalists, opposing television stations should all be able to voice their opinions loudly.

1070

Idolaters can insult, use bad language and attack. God says, "Do not mind them!" Why does God tell us not to mind them? That is because God is the One Who gives them that power. If He wills so, there would be no one to call 'idolater'. God is the One Who creates them and their speech. If He wills it so, He could make them unable to speak. That is why God wants Muslims to have a very calm spirit.

1071

Islam is the religion of ease, not difficulty. But radicals have made it very difficult, so much so that it became impossible to live by. That is why a great portion of the people in the Islamic world do not live by Islam.

1072

I am looking for the Mahdi (pbuh) and so are you. However not being able to find him, not having seen him yet, does not change the intensity of our activities, our efforts and this will never change. We will continue on this path until we die.

1073

People will resist against all Mahdis. That is a sign of his being the Mahdi. Our Prophet (saas) says that Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will strive for 40 years. If the Mahdi were to make progress easily, why would he need to be striving for 40 years? He would have results in less than 40 days. But that is not the case.

1074

All the Prophets and Mahdis that have been sent have increased the number of religiously lawful acts and decreased the unlawful acts. But idolaters have always increased the number of unlawful acts and decreased the number of lawful acts. The fact is, however, the number of lawful acts are very high in the true religion.

1075

It is obvious that Selahattin Demirtaş is a Muslim. He constantly talks about God and religion. No one can call him irreligious. If a person says "God" even once, that person is considered a Muslim.

1076

Iran is a Darwinist nation. If one is a Darwinist, that means he does not believe in God; it means he does not believe in religion. The superstitions Mullahs are preaching are terrifying. Consequently, irreligiousness is very widespread; atheism is very widespread among the youth.

1077

A Muslim would never fire a bullet against another Muslim. What could you do against ISIS? You could talk to them. You could say, "You are Muslims and we are Muslims as well. Let us make peace." It is not acceptable to confront Muslims with weapons and guns. It is not acceptable to deal with them with bloodshed or bombs.

1078

One says "I am very rich." How can you be rich? He says, "I have a yacht." Where is that yacht? It is inside your brain. Where is that yacht? It is inside my brain. Then how could "you" be rich? All goods, everything belongs to God. Almighty God creates them as shadow things.

1079

Those who want to struggle against ISIS should look for the Mahdi (pbuh). They cannot find a way out other than that. They should look for Jesus Messiah. This scourge will continue if they fail to do that.

1080

The US could overcome their troubles if they support the system of the Mahdi. Otherwise they can neither save the region, nor get themselves out of trouble. Both the region and the USA will go down. There is no solution other that the system of the Mahdi. They feign ignorance, but the time will come for them to understand, very soon.

1081

Misogyny is one of the most distinct characteristics of a radical. They have an indescribable hatred and rage towards women. They hate women. In their own twisted minds, they look down on women when they see them at the streets and think very highly only of themselves.

1082

The Great Middle East Project is a project of the system of the antichrist. The system of the antichrist has hatched a plan to break the Islamic world into pieces, to separate it into small fractions and consequently to annihilate it by easily rendering it ineffective. God has ensnared them in their own plot, but you will see this in the coming years.

1083

The goal of the Great Middle East Project is to break the Islamic world into pieces. I mean while the system of the Mahdi seeks to attain unity, integrity and being one, the system of the dajjal (antichrist) seeks to break it into pieces.

1084

Traditionalist, orthodox Muslims never talk about love. That is a miracle. They do not talk about it under any circumstances. They do not even mention such a beauty, one that is the purpose of the foundation of the universe.

1085

Love is the purpose of the foundation of this world. Almighty God would not create the universe if it was not for love. He creates for love. Love is also the purpose of Heaven. Love is the purpose of the trial [of the life of this world] as well. What God wants from us is love.

1086

Women are superior beings, they are beautiful beings. God created women and men as equals but women are highly esteemed beings.

1087

The Last Day does not come upon the world Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) lives in but people are not aware of this. All the radicals of the world will be hostile against him. They are not even aware that they are alive by courtesy of him. They are not aware that the Last Day does not come about by courtesy of him. Unbelievers, those people who are astray are not aware of the fact that they are living thanks to him.

1088

The lovelessness of radicals, their misogyny is incomprehensible. Once you take women on, you would be taking on half of the world. That is because women are mothers. You would thus be taking on half of the world and mothers. When that is the case, Islam would completely fall from power in the world, just like it is right now.

1089

Traditionalist, orthodox Islam regards women as half-people. Actually women and men are equals. Almighty God emphasizes this fact in many verses.

1090

Islam is a religion that could be widespread in a very short period of time, one that the whole world would love. Islam is not spread because of the repulsiveness of radical men and women; they never talk about love. They have sinister faces. They know nothing about arts, about beauty, about aesthetics. However, what God wants is simple: He says, "Live in this world with peace, full of love, being friendly and brotherly, worshiping Me and loving Me, being careful about what is lawful and what is unlawful so that I will give you plentitude and abundance."

1091

The people of Azerbaijan are very dear to us. They are very decent, very well mannered people. They have never been degenerated. They have never been corrupted; they have always remained noble. Mr. Ilham Aliyev has indeed displayed a very rational attitude and never opened the door to radicalism. He has opened the door to real Islam, but closed the door to radicalism.

1092

One of the most important characteristics of Azerbaijan is that it is closest to Turkey; Azerbaijan is like Konya, Eskişehir or Istanbul for us. This is how it is known in the whole of Turkey. This is how Turkey is for Azerbaijan.

1093

Azerbaijan will open the doors to Turkey at the same time as Armenia. This will be the first spark of the Islamic Union, of the Turkish Islamic Union. A great Turkish Islamic Union will be formed that will embrace Israel as well. The whole region will thus attain relief and peace, insha'Allah.

1094

Islam did not totally prevail at the time of our Prophet (saas), but Islam will prevail by means of his son, his commander. It will prevail by means of Mahdi. Whose victory will that be? God's. Whom does God use as an instrument for that? The son of our Prophet (saas). The victory attained by the grandson of our Prophet (saas) will be the victory, the honor of our Prophet (saas).

1095

Idolaters do not like the Mahdi, they do not like the second coming of Jesus Messiah, they do not like the Islamic Union. They express this by distorting the truth with their tongues. In the Qur'an God says, “It is He who sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of Truth to exalt it over every other religion, though the idolaters hate it." That is because the idolaters fiercely resist the Islamic Union, they resist the Mahdi, they resist the second coming of Jesus Messiah.

1096

Muslims are radiant, immaculate, pleasant, virtuous people, they appear pleasant to the heart and to the eyes. Idolaters, on the other hand, are filthy and they always talk about foulness. They are disgusting. They constantly assume an attitude that – in their twisted minds- mocks religion. Every single idolater has this characteristic; they talk about Islam in a mocking fashion.

1097

Idolaters consider the commands of God, the Qur'an as insufficient- may God forbid. In their twisted minds, they attempt to teach morality, they attempt to teach religion to God- may God forbid. That is why they either make additions to or subtractions from Islam.

1098

What does idolater mean? It means those who do not consider the Qur'an as sufficient, who do not consider the commands of God as enough, may God forbid, those who attempt to teach religion to God, or those who make additions to the religion God revealed in the name of God.

1099

Radicals believe that they are the most devout ones when they turn the life of this world into a life in Hell, when they misrepresent Islam as hellish. For instance, they believe that it is out of piousness when they turn praying into an inextricable act. They believe that it is out of piousness when they make it impossible to perform ablution, whereas God described performing ablution in a single line in the Qur'an.

1100

Does Shi'ism have a place in the Qur'an? Does Sunnism have a place in the Qur'an? Where do you come up with those concepts? Does Wahabism have a place in the Qur'an? There is only one Qur'an, there is only one Islam. The only name we all have is 'Muslim'.

1101

Radicals had Muslims decimate one another. One party kills the others and vice versa. They took pride in that. "Today we have killed two hundred Shias, praise be to God," they say. The others say, "We have killed three hundred Sunnis today, praise be to God. We have bombed them." This radical understanding of Islam brought about this disaster.

1102

Radicals are the ones who have presented Islam as if -may God forbid- it is trouble for the whole world, as if it demands a life like that of Hell and they have ruined many Muslims. They have had Muslims choked, they have had Muslims choked in Iraq, in Syria and in Libya. They have had them crushed all over the world.

1103

Radicals have always been obsessed about the marriages of our Prophet (saas), his love for women. They never want to recite or talk about the verses related with that subject. They merely want to gloss over that subject completely. For instance, they do not want to talk about the fact that there are women in the Heaven.

1104

The things demanded by the Qur'an are only a few: Performing prayers is explained very briefly in the Qur'an, fasting is explained very briefly and giving alms is explained very briefly. God commands us to be merciful, compassionate, to avoid telling lies, to be true. He commands us to have good intentions and to love one another, to love God a lot; to be of help to one another and to avoid worldly ambitions for goods because everything belongs to God. The commands in the Qur'an are very few. The rest is all about the foulness of the unbelievers, the impertinent behavior of the unbelievers, of the people of heresy and the responses given to them.

1105

God is pleased when the Greatness of God is expressed. God does not need it, but He wants love.

1106

The Greatness of God gives a great pleasure to a Muslim. It makes Muslims happy. I mean being under the command of the Great and Omnipotent God pleases a Muslim.

1107

One says, "These are my goods, my possessions." The fact is however that one has nothing to own, no possessions to lay claim to and everything belongs to God. We are only sent here as guardians for that which actually belongs to God.

1108

Distraction is a very widespread trouble. That is why God has deemed being cautious and careful a religious duty. God says "Be careful!" and commands us to be careful.

1109

One acts impertinently against our Prophet (saas) and God heaps troubles upon him. He struggles against religion and God heaps troubles upon him. He strives against Islam and God heaps troubles upon him. He struggles against the champion of Islam, against a person serving God and God heaps troubles upon him. Observe what happens to such people and you will see: You will see that whoever struggles against the saints of God, against those who struggle in the Path of God, is plagued by God.

1110

Iran is a country that Turkey should urgently become friends with. How nice that they are all Muslims, how nice that they are all devout. How nice that they are one of the strongest military powers of the region. How nice that they have such a settled structure of state.

1111

A presidential system means, may God forbid, Turkey being divided by its own hands.

1112

When in comfort, they unite against God in wide masses and rebel against God almost worldwide. When they are crushed, they pray to God and beg. What is the need for that crushing? Do not do that, be wise, repent. Be thankful to God and say, “O Lord, You are Great, I do love You so much” and see that God would make blessings rain down on you. Why are you looking for trouble? Why do you go astray and run riot? Why do you crush yourself?

1113

The US used to praise God's name profusely and it used to be rich. They started to grovel when they started to invoke God's name less and less. Russia used to invoke God's name less and they were groveling. Now they've started to talk about God and God gave them a little relief.

1114

God makes the whole world grovel, the whole world is in a wretched state right now. And that is created specifically. There is no real reason for this world to be poor. There are vast lands. It is possible to carry out all sorts of agricultural activities. There is technology, there is everything. Amazingly, God creates economic crises and famines. There is no real reason for those. They are created miraculously. That is because people forget God. Had they praised God and invoked His Name, riches would have flowed all over them profusely.

1115

Give your love to God. He gives his love directly to his child and fails to say, "My Lord, how beautiful You have created my child, how beautiful You manifest Yourself." That is when God gives a lot of troubles. A thousand an done different torments. God either takes away that child from him or gives him a disease or some trouble, or takes away his riches from him. Why do you not say, "O Lord, thanks be to You. How beautiful You create beauties. These are all Your manifestations"?

1116

One says, "I do love my child madly." God is the One Who shows that child to you, God is the One Who created your child. The fact is that it is the manifestation of God that you are holding on to, not your child. God manifests Himself in that child and reveals Himself as your child and that is what you actually are holding on to.

1117

God wants to be loved with a profound love. God wants a deep, attentive rapport. For instance, God says, "Be thankful to me, render your thanks and invoke My Name frequently." The goal here is to establish a constant connection with Him. God loves to be loved but He loves to be loved greatly and that is Almighty God's due. That is because He is the Owner of everything, He is the Owner of all beauties.

1118

What good would it be if one is in Heaven unless he doesn't feel love for God? Muslims take great pleasure from Heaven because they love God.

1119

It is Almighty God's due to be loved. He is the Owner of everything, He is the Creator of everything. Then one comes along and forgets God and focuses merely on his own interests.

1120

God wants to be loved a lot. Not paying attention to Him offends Almighty God a lot. I mean it offends God. That is why He responds with such troubles cast upon them. This is the reason behind the ruin of the Islamic world.

1121

God considers being loved as very important. The goal of God for us is not to love the food and the honey in the Heaven. Almighty God sees His being loved as crucially important. He wants us to love honey and the other beauties of Heaven as manifestations of Him. He would not let us love those blessings independently. Actually, we could not take pleasure from it anyway.

1122

God checks up faith related sensitivities. Starting from the Prophet Adam (pbuh) until the Last Day, all people will be put through a perfect trial without any exceptions. No one has ever been granted any privileges that would remove their freewill of mind.

1123

God says that, "This world is not the place for play and idle sport. The Heaven is the place for play and idle sport. This world is a place for trial." That is why if you fasten yourself to this world, you would be stuck with it, says God. But if you aim for the Hereafter, if you aim My approval, I will make you happy for all eternity, you will have fun and laugh. Those who fasten themselves to this world would merely grovel, let me say that much. They would merely wallow and flounder. Nothing else would ever happen.

1124

Our brothers awaiting the system of the Mahdi are waiting for it as if they are waiting for some great fun. That is not the case. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will pass away just a short while after the global dominion of the moral values of Islam. That is because God does not make Islam prevail for Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) to have fun or for others to have fun. God makes Islam prevail to keep his Word. Heaven is the real place to have fun.

1125

The world has no aspect to enjoy things. That is because Heaven is the place to enjoy. Why should people settle for the inadequate pleasures of this world? They carry a ton of wood on their shoulders and then say, "Let us go have fun." That ton of wood on their shoulders will be lifted in the Heaven. You can then have fun. There are various hardships all around this world.

1126

The duration of dominion of the system of the Mahdi will be very short. The only goal with it is God saying, "I will keep My promise, see that I will make Islam prevail in the world. It is easy for Me." Or else it is not in the sense of having fun, playing around and making the most of the world.

1127

Love of the Mahdi is very fervent among Alewites and Shias. Theirs is a powerful love. Sunnis have an unnecessary languor and that is not something good. They need to make it right.

1128

Village rangers are necessary so long as the danger of the PKK exists. When the PKK danger is removed, the rangers can be abolished as well. So long as the PKK remains, so should the rangers.

1129

The beautiful aspect of the Gospel is that it talks a lot about love. The Gospel talks a lot about affection, friendship, forgiveness and brotherhood. It is very refreshing in that respect. It is very pleasant.

1130

One would go insane without religion. Life would be horrible.

1131

There is nothing to be called the YPG. There is nothing to be called PJAK. There is the PKK; these are only various names for the PKK.

1132

They should cancel the elections. Before all else they should wipe out the PKK with laws and the legal system. Let the problem of the PKK be solved before all else and then hold elections. Elections cannot be held while the region is being invaded, while the people are being held at gun-point.

1133

Being a Freemason doesn't mean that he is irreligious or faithless. I have many Freemason friends and acquaintances, and they all are very devout. There are Catholic ones among them, devout Catholics, there are Rabbis among them, devout Rabbis, there are Chief Rabbis who are Freemasons. I mean Freemasonry does not mean irreligiousness. They should consider Freemasonry as a union, as a community. I mean it is a community aiming to be gracious, a community of friendship and companionship.

1134

God is the Owner of Knowledge. God gives us knowledge that He wishes to give. God is the Owner of love as well. We are loved as much as God wishes. God is the Owner of manifestations. When we love a person we love the manifestation of God in that person.

1135

All damaged and ruined mosques should be rejuvenated. It would be unlawful to leave them in such a state. They should definitely be revived and rejuvenated. A mosque should remain a mosque until the Last Day. You cannot demolish them and turn them into places of amusement.

1136

There are some conditions for the union of a woman and a man. First of all the woman should feel a deep love for that man, she should have a deep respect; she should value and trust that man. She should see that man as her lawful spouse and feel passion in her heart. Only then God could give a feeling of contentment. Attacking the bone and flesh of a woman as if she is a dog is a very atrocious behavior.

1137

Forcing a woman into a relationship even though she doesn't have love or affection in her heart, even though she doesn't have such a desire, is outright ignominy, characterlessness and dishonor.

1138

We need to open our borders with Armenia and abolish the necessity of passports and visas. Let us embrace our brothers and remove the damage that has been caused by a one-hundred-years-old fascist spirit. A lot of blood had been shed on both sides. This has been brought about by the ruthlessness of fascism. Let us show the whole world that we have put an end to this scourge.

1139

Being religious was what brought America prosperity and gave it plentitude, it was what made them happy. But as America left religion aside, disasters enveloped America. The richest state in the world is now on the path to become the poorest. They would again become very rich if they become religious.

1140

God wants the world to be beautiful and decorated. He adorns the world gloriously. Radicals, on the other hand, want a dark world. Do not attempt to destroy the adornments created by God, do not try to dispel the adornments created by God. You should be trying to present the adornments created by God in the most beautiful manner.

1141

Artists should be given prominence. Their love, their affection, would have a positive impact on society. Artists have a special kindness, they have a special quality of the soul. They could be a very nice example for society in that respect.

1142

Love, beauty and art are the goals of life: Without them why would you ever bother to build bridges, why would you bother building tube tunnels from the land or under the sea? All those things would be vain. For love to exist, art and aesthetics nurturing love should be attached great importance.

1143

Artists are teachers of love, teachers of beauty. The door should be opened all the way for artists. A Ministry of Arts and Aesthetics should be established.

1144

The state should carry out anti-communist, anti-Darwinist activities. The PKK would be done with, long gone, if they had done this. They constantly feign ignorance even though there is an exact solution for the matter and that prolongs the problem.

1145

People should be trained regarding love. Love is the main anchor point of the world. There is no life without love.

1146

A general amnesty, etc., are unreasonable, dangerous things. Beware! Don't you dare! It would be a devastating disaster to pardon those who killed our soldiers.
