Bigotry: The Dark Danger



A9 TV, August 24th, 2012

They lay down numerous conditions. No way. You get to have the book of Allah in your hands and read it. You get to kiss it. You get to touch it to your face. You place it under your head. Allah’s book is like bread. Don’t be insane. Don’t make people keep their distance from the Qur’an. Everybody can open it and read it as he wishes. But if his hands are dirty, he wouldn’t eat when his hands are dirty, would he? Of course your hands should be clean. He puts the Qur’an into a cover and hangs it onto the wall. He says, “I cannot sleep if the Qur’an is hung up there”, “I cannot go to bed” says he. What is the solution? Not keeping any Qur’an at home. Their reasoning has become so strange. It is astonishing. Is it respecting or attacking  the Qur’an? What kind of a respect is it? He can’t go to bed, he can’t sleep, he can’t have fun, and he claims he is supposed to be standing up. It is supposed to be on a high level, on a remote place, inside its case. They dust it once in every three or four months.  This is not right. You should live with the Qur’an side by side. It stays on your pillow, at your bedside. You read it in the morning as soon as you wake up. You read it before you go to bed. You read it as you have your breakfast. Satan tries numerous ways to keep people away from the Qur’an. And satan does this in the name of Allah. Look, in a verse it is stated “ not let the Deluder delude you concerning Allah”   Satan deludes them concerning Allah. They don’t use their intellect; they think they are doing a good thing. They become content when a woman cannot touch the Qur’an. “Oh, you are so pious” they say. They are happy when youngsters cannot touch the Qur’an. They say, “We can’t understand it if we read it anyway. We can’t understand it even 40 years later” and Allah says, “Mushrikun (those who associate partners with Allah) do not understand”, “Believers do understand”. “Only those who have piety can understand” Allah says, “We gave them understanding” says our Lord, insha'Allah.

 (An answer to the question, “How do you account for the fact that while our elders would not even stretch their feet out in the room containing the Holy Qur’an, yet you read the Qur’an when there are women who keep their heads uncovered when the Qur’an is read, even though our Prophet (pbuh) says, ‘speak to women from behind a veil’?)

Satan has played a trick to turn you away from the Qur’an and Allah under a guise of holiness, a trick that would amaze you. If you fall for that trap you will be very foolish indeed. What does that mean? Either you or the Qur’an will not be able to enter a house containing the Qur’an. And since you will enter it, the Qur’an will have to leave. Nonsense. They could not stretch their feet out in a house containing the Qur’an. So they could not lie down. So you would have to spend the whole night standing up. And since you could not sleep in that house, either you would have to leave it, or the Qur’an would. Look at satan’s trick. You can live in the best way of all in a house containing the Qur’an. The Qur’an is like bread, to be kept by the bed. “Is it right for the Qur’an to be read with people’s heads uncovered on your program?” So people whose heads are uncovered cannot listen to the Qur’an? What does that mean? Millions of people are listening to us now; 70%-80% of Turks do not cover their heads. So they would have to turn the TV off. So either we will not read the Qur’an, or else they will have to switch off. Both options are devilish and irrational. Both options serve satan. Do you see what satan does in order to turn people away from the Qur’an? How many roads has he blocked off? Do you see satan’s methods. He says, “.., I will lie in ambush for them on your straight path”. “When our Prophet (pbuh) spoke to women from behind a veil.” Do you not walk side by side with women on the hajj? Why are you lying? Why are you trying to alter Islam and the Qur’an? Why are you doing things that will cause satan to rejoice? That was limited to the wives of the Prophet (pbuh). Our mothers spoke from behind veils. Because Almighty Allah tells the wives of our Prophet (pbuh) “Do not be too soft-spoken in your speech lest someone with sickness in his heart becomes desirous.” They are our mothers. Of course this will anger us. We do not want anyone to look at our mothers out of the corners of their eyes. There are all kinds of people, and we cannot trust them all. Almighty Allah made things easier there, and our mothers spoke from behind veils. Because they were defamed and treated ignobly. They slandered my mother Ayisha (pbuh) and our other mothers. They acted dishonorably, and Almighty Allah acted accordingly. Allah says, “you are not like other women”.  What does that mean? The women of the Islamic community are different, the wives of the Prophet (pbuh) are different. Look, note this - you are not like other women”. What does that mean? The women of the Islamic community are different, their law is different, there is no need for them to speak from behind a veil. That refers to the wives of the Prophet (pbuh). Allah took that precaution at that time to stop people behaving wrongly, insha’Allah. The women of the Islamic community are all together on the hajj and on war. How can they be separate? Our Prophet (pbuh) loved women. And Almighty Allah told my beloved forebear, “After that no other women are lawful for you nor may you exchange them for other wives, even though their beauty might be pleasing to you.” Because our Prophet (pbuh) kept on marrying them. There was great demand. My forebear was very handsome and attractive. My beloved forbear and Prophet (pbuh) was so lovely women would fall in love with him at a glance. Almighty Allah took precautions when all women fell in love with him. But He said those he already had were not included in this. He excluded the concubines he already had. They say you can not lie down in your house. You put the Qur’an by your bedside. You must kiss and embrace it and live with it. How can you not stretch out? What a thing to say!. 

Look what Almighty Allah says in Surat an-Naml, 44: “To the Queen of Sheba; “She was told: ‘Enter the courtyard,’ but when she saw it she supposed it to be a pool...”” The Prophet Solomon (pbuh) was very sweet and lovely. He had it specially built to resemble a pool, it looked just like a pool as it reflected the light in waves. It looked like deep water. He invited Balqis the Queen of Sheba to enter the water. The woman bared her legs and prepared to enter the water. “She supposed it to be a pool.” Note that, not shallow water. And she bared her legs.  “He [Solomon] said, ‘It is a courtyard paved with glass’.” He said it was not a pool. She said, ‘My Lord, I have wronged myself...” The Queen of Sheba said, I have submitted with Solomon to the Lord of all the worlds.” She looks the Prophet Solomon (pbuh) in the eyes as she speaks, and the Prophet Solomon (pbuh) looks her in the eyes. He knows she will bare her legs, and he still tells her to enter the pool. You may tell me that is a very severe way of speaking. But I would never hurt a fly. My language may be harsh, but I have enormous love and compassion. I have fished many number of ants out of water. I cannot let them be harmed.

How can you be unaware that satan will engage in such trickery? How can you not see it? You cannot sleep in a house with the Qur’an in it! Nor stretch your feet out! Nor sit in a chair! So what is the answer? To get rid of the Qur’an. And that is totally wrong. How can you not see that? Satan has tricked you, the dajjal has tricked you. Can you not see that? Have your brains seized up? Has Allah taken away your senses? Or have you gone crazy? You cannot read the Qur’an because there will be women with their heads uncovered. Look at that mentality! In that case the Qur’an cannot be read on any TV channel, in case people with their heads uncovered hear it. But 70%-80% of Turks do not cover their heads. Most women wear plunging necklines in the coastal towns. But I respect and love them all. I value and admire them all. The psychopathic bigots must not be offended by them. What kind of mindset is that? What kind of logic? They are radiant and immaculate Muslims.

A9 TV, 4 September 2011

There is no reincarnation in the Qur’an. Allah says there is no return. That a screen comes down and they can no longer return. And what logic could there be to reincarnation? A person is tested now. How can there be reincarnation when he is being tested? For example, let us imagine I do something as a child. I try to do better. I try to do it better when I am 20 and 30. I gain experience. Because there is a rise in knowledge and experience. But in reincarnation they say, “You were a man in India, and now you have been reborn in this body.” We ask, “How do you know?” and the other person says, “I vaguely remember it.” In order for that to be of any use, all that man’s memories would also have to enter the new body. Then one could acquire experience and grow by acquiring new experiences. But since they are all gone they say, “I cannot remember anything.” Since there can be no new growth, since one cannot expect any moral improvement or superiority, and since no experience is acquired, what is the point? “My soul will be perfected,” they say. But how can the soul be perfected if no new knowledge or experience is acquired? Reincarnation is therefore totally illogical. A hollow belief. I talked this over with the Knights Templar who came here and convinced some of them. It is illogical.

A9 TV; 5 November 2011


I have seen somewhere yesterday. Some of our brothers say we should pray three times a day, others say twice. Now look. I can quote reference sources. From where? From Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmidhi, Nasai and Ibn al-Majah. I can quote references from all books of trustworthy hadiths. According to the account handed down by Abu Huraira: “He heard the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) say: “If there is a river before the door of one of you, if that person washes in the river five times a day, would there be any trace of dirt left on him?” And the Companions said, “Not a trace of dirt would be left on him.” Then Rasulullah (pbuh) said: “Praying five times a day is like that. Allah says that sins are washed away with prayer five times a day.” So much for praying three times a day!

“A man asked Rasulullah (pbuh) about the times of the prayers. And he replied: "Pray with me for the (next) two days.” (On that day) he commanded Bilal to recite the call to prayer just as the Sun was setting. He recited the call at noon.” Look, he made the call to prayer at noon. “He later commanded him to recite it for noon. The he commanded him to recite it when the Sun was high, and white and bright, and he recited the call for the afternoon. He then commanded him as the Sun set, and he recited the call for the evening. He then commanded him as the light faded over the horizon, and he recited it for the night-time prayer. Then as dawn was breaking he recited the call for morning prayer. On the second day he commanded Bilal to wait until the atmosphere was cooler. And he delayed the call until it was very much cooler. He then performed the afternoon prayer rather after the Sun was at its highest, later than on the day before. He performed the evening prayer shortly before the whiteness faded from the horizon. The night-time prayer he performed after one-third of the night had passed. He performed the morning prayer when it was truly light. He then asked, “Where is he who asked about the times of the prayers?” And the man who had asked identified himself. And he said, “The times of the prayers are between those (two times) you have seen.”

So you see, these five prayers are totally clear. Look, from all these reference sources at once. Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmidhi, Nasai and Ibn al- Majah. So that puts an end to it, insha’Allah.

A9 TV; 8 October 2011

Allah always describes what is good. The Qur’an is also highly rational and consistent. It is logical from start to finish. Allah speaks of a second life. We never knew about that. We never knew we had a second life. We imagined we would die normally. We may have felt its existence instinctively, but we never knew it. Allah says the second life does exist. And it is not transitory, but eternal. It is a glorious thing. I looked indoors today and it is clear that Allah has created all the technical equipment and everything. I am amazed. How can people fail to believe in Allah? This pen is now being created in my mind. So Allah exists. There can be no other explanation. I can see that just from this pen. The existence of Allah is crystal clear. But He does not provide detailed information. The environment for the test is so perfect that any honest person will rise to the highest level, even if he does not possess that much knowledge. This is a huge opportunity, a great beauty. The world is a place of competition, competing to be the best. It is the opportunity to be the best. This is delightful. Because one wishes to be the best. And the path ahead of us is clear. How wonderful! Masha’Allah. If one had a lot of information, enough to eliminate the need for the use of free will, then there would be no test. I look and He has created all this technical equipment, these computers and televisions. But people fail to realize. One must embrace this opportunity with all fervor and never let go. Allah also provides contrary evidence. He provides evidence that disbelief can also make use of. But the evidence that disbelief can take advantage of is weak, as required by the test. A child dies, for instance. Disbelief might take advantage of that. But against that Allah creates computers and the miracle of the atom and the soul and the wondrous structure within the soul. But when the child dies, Allah says, “That secret of this resides with Me.” “Trust in me,” He says. “I gave you compassion and sympathy,” He says. “My intelligence is greater than all of yours,” He says. “It is incomparably greater. You can only think as much as I wish you to. When you can do nothing, think of how I shall act with wisdom. Trust in me,” He says. Allah says that if He takes a child’s soul, He has a good reason for doing so. What is a child? Allah creates him as an image in our brains. We cannot know the original of that child on the outside. How is his soul taken? When? At what moment did he enter paradise? We cannot know. “You must trust Me and think the best,” says Allah. That is the secret of the test. For example, Allah has made you very attractive, but He also creates ugly people. He creates people with disfigurements. That is where intelligent people must still support Allah. We must cling tightly to faith and never abandon it. The way ahead is clear for those who do not relinquish their faith. They are mysteriously, yet hugely successful. Look, notice how they rule the world. That also appears in the Torah. Allah says that He will bestow global dominion on even just 12 people. “Twelve people.” Believers. He says He will not destroy the world so long as it contains just 12 believers. For example, Allah makes life short. That is perfect for this test.

A9 TV; 9 October 2011

Surat ar-Rum, 51-58:

But if We send a wind, and they see it turning yellow, still they persist after that in being unbeliever.”

Allah speaks of human beings’ characters. He says they are prone to ingratitude.

You will not make dead men hear; you will not make deaf men hear the call, when they turn their backs in flight.”

This is a great miracle, something really important. A great many people are dead. People imagine they are alive and have a normal soul. But Allah says they are dead.  It is unambiguous. They are dead. But like the living dead, zombies. You cannot make the deaf hear “when they turn their backs in flight.” They have no consciousness, no understanding.

You will not guide blind men from their misguidance. You will not make anyone hear except for those who believe in Our Signs and so are Muslims.”

Almighty Allah says you can only make those who fear Allah hear.

It is Allah Who created you from a weak beginning,” His creation from semen, the suckling stage, human beings’ weakness. “…then after weakness gave you strength,” In youth, as time passes. They turn into normal, healthy young men and women. “…then after strength ordained weakness and grey hair.” Then they grow old and begin to become decrepit and weak. And then comes death. “He creates whatever He wills. He is All-Knowing, All-Powerful.”

 “On the Day the Last Hour arrives, the evildoers will swear they have not even tarried for an hour. That is the extent to which they are deceived.”

 “How long did you live in the world?” they ask. And that person will guess at approximately just one hour. He thinks he lived just one hour. Because time is relative, his whole life seems to have passed like an hour. Those who have been given knowledge and believed will say, ‘You tarried in accordance with Allah’s Decree until the Day of Rising. And this is the Day of Rising, but you did not know it’.”

Muslims tell the truth of the matter there. But people cannot understand. “We lived for one hour,” they say. But they tell them the truth, because they are unable to perceive the passage of time accurately.

On that Day the excuses of those who did wrong will not help them nor will they be able to appease Allah.”

They make excuses, saying, “I was too busy, I had checks and bills to worry about, I was busy with my family, school and money, so I had no opportunity to buy books or research or read…” They make excuses. But Allah does not accept excuses. They want to appease Him, but He refuses that, too. 

We have made all kinds of examples for people in this Qur’an. If you bring them a Sign those who are unbelievers will say, ‘You are just purveyors of falsehood’!”

Almighty Allah says in the Qur’an that He has provided all kinds of information, all kinds of detail. This is especially addressed to those who ascribe partners to Him. “I have provided all kinds of information and left nothing out,” He says. “If you bring them a Sign those who are unbelievers will say, ‘You are just purveyors of falsehood’!” They say; “You have none away with our established order, our traditional religion, our traditional way of belief. You are bringing us a new perspective.” “The Qur’an is sufficient,” you say. And they reply, “You have abandoned the faith and the religion.” “How is that?” you ask. “You say the Qur’an is sufficient,” they reply. “But it also needs other nonsense added on.” “How much?” “At least enough to make another Qur’an,” they say.

A9 TV, 10 September 2011

Those who look at the Qur’an must examine it very rationally. What does Allah emphasize most? The abnormalities of disbelief and how believers must be fixed in their faith against it, believers being strong and thinking and investigating and always being on the side of Allah. I mean, this is discussed in 80% or 90% of it. And we must always ask Allah to keep our faith strong.

Surah Ya Sin, 78:

He makes likenesses of Us and forgets his own Creation, saying, ‘Who will give life to bones when they are decayed’?”

What is that? Weakness of faith. He cannot believe. What do you need in the face of that? Genuine faith. Absolute faith. Say ‘He Who made them in the first place will bring them back to life. He has total knowledge of each created thing;”

What is that? Signs leading to faith. Because Almighty Allah encourages people to think. He says that He “Who made them in the first place will bring them back to life.” Human beings are created most perfectly. They are made one time only. This pen has been made once. Could the factory make another one? Yes, it could. Why not? We cannot say, “You cannot make another one.” Because it obviously can. Can a craftsman who makes one chair not make another? Yes, he can. That applies to everything. Allah also says He “made them in the first place...” So can He not do it again? That is such an easy thing that human beings cannot comprehend it. Allah reminds us of that. It is so easy but billions of people cannot comprehend it. Then they say, “Actually, that is really true. I never thought about that before.” Human beings think so superficially. That is why Allah reminds us. Their thinking is so impaired that they say, "Who will give life to bones when they are decayed?” Since they are materialists, they say, “Once matter has gone it is all over.” Since they look at things from a materialist perspective. They are unable to equate matter and the soul since they deny the existence of the soul. That is weakness of faith. “He Who produces fire for you from green trees.”

Allah also notes the greenness of wood and says He has made it flammable. Allah opens our horizons. But it never even occurs to people. In other words, Allah’s Creation of trees such that they can be burned, and their arising from green plants and growing from the soil. They emerge from soil and water and soon become capable of being burned. Can you burn soil? No. Can water burn? No. But water and soil combine together. You look and see that something flammable has emerged. Then you look and see that fruit has formed. Oranges, apples, mandarins, walnuts, melons, watermelons, beans, lentils and whatever else you can think of form in the soil. “He Who produces fire for you from green trees.” Allah broadens our horizons. He encourages us to see the signs leading to faith and to think. He reminds us to reflect in order to expand our horizons. When we reflect on it we start thinking of a whole chain of other things. Allah does this so we should think of other things. Does He Who created the heavens and earth not have the power to create the same again?” There is another logic here. Has He created the atmosphere in the most perfect form? Yes, He has. He also created the soil. Does not Allah cause this Earth to float like a feather in the boundless vasts of space? We are like a ship. We are like a ship with 7 billion people in it. We are floating about like a feather in a ship full of 7 billion people. Never running aground or suffering any turbulence. Take a car. No matter what equipment they provide, cars still rock about, as do planes. But there is not the slightest turbulence here. The whole world is moving through the sky. The soul also floats like that. And nothing happens to it. Does He Who created the heavens and earth not have the power to create the same again?” I “made them in the first place” He says, the Earth and sky. So why should I not be able to make the earth and sky of paradise? In other words, “Since I have created man once, why should I be unable to do so again?” He is encouraging us to think. But Allah does not provide so much information as to eliminate the need for our free will. Because the test would therefore be meaningless. Allah prepares the ground for us to reflect. Almighty Allah says, Does He Who created the heavens and earth not have the power to create the same again?” Allah does not leave it there. He encourages people to expand their minds. He is the Creator, the All-Knowing.”

Allah always described Creation. And what I talk about is always Creation. So what do they say about us? “They are creationists,” they say. When we say that “Allah created,” they call us creationists. What do they say? They say, “It was chance that created.” “An idol did it,” they say. But what do we say? “Allah created.” “…when He desires a thing is just to say to it, ‘Be!’ and it is,” says Allah. Where is the evolution in that? Allah answers evolutionists like that. Evolutionists say, “It must have taken a very long time. Allah could not do so otherwise (may Allah forbid!).” But Allah says, “when He desires a thing is just to say to it, ‘Be!’ and it is.”

Allah gives a time frame. “And it is.” It happens instantaneously. “Glory be to Him Who has the Dominion of all things in His Hand. To Him you will be returned.”

Do you see the signs leading to faith? Allah directs us to these so we will have faith and believe this. That is why the signs leading to faith are the most vital subject. And I concentrate on the signs leading to faith above all else. I concentrate on genuine faith. I am opposed to imitation faith. It must not be imitation, but genuine. Imitation faith is weak.

A9 TV; 10 November 2011

The five pillars of Islam. There is no such issue as the five pillars of Islam. People know of five pillars. But there are not five pillars. The entire Qur’an is the pillar of Islam. “There are five pillars in Islam,” they say. So what happened to Islamic Union? Or lawful and unlawful? You have to abide by them all. The pillars of Islam is the Qur’an as a whole. There are no five pillars in Islam.

A9 TV; 10 November 2011

(In response to the question “Is it fitting for women to listen to the Qur’an with their heads uncovered?”)

The same old obsession: “Many women here and there listen to the Qur’an being read, listen to you reading the Qur’an with their heads uncovered. Would it not be better not to read the Qur’an?” In summary that is the issue. You are trying to turn people away from the Qur’an. In Turkey, 70% or 80% of women do not cover their heads. The great majority are uncovered at home, at least 90% of them. So fear Allah and pull yourselves together, women must listen to the Qur’an with joy. Do not try to turn people away from the Qur’an. Do not follow satan. Pull yourselves together. They use all kinds of excuses to turn women from the Qur’an. And everyone else. “You cannot understand the Qur’an, not even if you tried for 40 years, so do not read it. Put it in its cover and leave it there.” They have ruined believers by turning people away from the Qur’an. Our Prophet (pbuh) has but one complaint in the Hereafter; “O Lord, this community of mine have abandoned the Qur’an,” he says. İbrahim [addressing the owner of the question], you are also one of this gang. Fear Allah and free yourself from this scourge. Leave it alone.

“Heads uncovered”. You are also trying to get men to cover their heads. “They are also infidels if they do not wear a skull cap,” they say. Women with their heads covered or uncovered all listen easily to the Qur’an. Do not turn people away from the Qur’an. Stop it. You are hurting Islam and the Qur’an.

I am not going to tell my beloved, “Your head is uncovered, so I shall not speak to you about the Qur’an.” That breaks off communications right from the start. That is unacceptable. You must preach with the Qur’an. Our Prophet (pbuh) used to preach in the market of Ukaz with the Qur’an. Did our Prophet (pbuh) say, “Cover your heads first, then I shall read to you from the Qur’an”? Did he? Where do you get this idea from?

(In response to the question “Why is Allah’s message, the Qur’an, in Arabic?”)

Because Arabic is the best and richest language. Arabic is the best language in the world, insha’Allah. “Why is it not in every language?” Only one Qur’an can come. A Qur’an in French or English … For the love of Allah, ask logical questions. Is it that hard to translate the Qur’an from Arabic? Allah sends one book, and you translate it into all languages. Allah gives us the strength and the means to do that.

A9 TV; 11 September 2011

Surat ar-Rum, 29-32:

However, those who do wrong pursue their whims and desires without any knowledge.” What is knowledge? The Qur’an. They have gone along with inventions produced by pagans, not based on the Qur’an. Who can guide those whom Allah has led astray? They will have no helpers.”

 “So set your face firmly towards the religion [the Qur’an], as a pure natural believer, Allah’s natural pattern on which He made mankind. There is no changing Allah’s creation. That is the true religion – but most people do not know it –“

The religion described by the Qur’an. “…but most people do not know it.” Allah says that the bigots do not know it now. “…as a pure natural believer,” in a pure form, adding nothing to the Qur’an. ...turning towards Him. Have fear of Him and establish prayer.”  Pray in the proper way. Not as the unbelievers describe. Do not be among the idolaters:” People say, “But that does not refer to me.” But it does refer to you. If you make additions to the Qur’an, heed idols and idolaters, if you say, “this polytheist and that idol said this or that against the Qur’an,” them you are also one of the idolaters. “…those [polytheists] who split up their religion;” yet people still say that does not refer to them. But it does.  “…and form into sects;” Who does it refer to then? “Not to us,” they say. “…each faction exulting in what they have.”  “I am the best of all,” they say. “I am one of the saved.” But Allah sets it out quite explicitly. “…and form into sects;” He says they are divided into separate factions among themselves. “…each faction exulting in what they have.”  Allah says they say they are the best. They say the verse does not refer to them. But it does. To maintain that the Qur’an is insufficient is to declare war on Allah. To say the Qur’an is insufficient is to insult the Qur’an, it is to declare war against Allah’s religion. But they regard the insufficiency of the Qur’an as a minor thing. Though issues many threats regarding the Qur’an. Allah says we will be held to account for the Qur’an alone, and nothing else. One will not be held to account for the nonsense dreamed up by unbelievers, only for the Qur’an. He says that people say they will also be called to account for the nonsense of unbelievers. There is not holding to account for idols or what idols say. Only for the Qur’an. What can we say if people refuse to believe it? Allah says, and the verse is totally explicit; Is that not clear enough? Allah is not talking about any other book. In the form transmitted by our Prophet (saas), insha’Allah. 

A9 TV, 15 September 2011

Surat al-Ma’un, 1-7

Have you seen him who denies the religion?”

That means there will be those who deny it in the End Times. How many? Millions. Billions.

He is the one who harshly rebuffs the orphan and does not urge the feeding of the poor.”

The Qur’an is referring to the death by hunger of those young people and orphans. What do they do? They kick and beat them in wars, as we see in films. They also “do not urge the feeding of the poor.” The poor starve to death. Tens or hundreds of thousands of people. And this is kept on the agenda as a huge global problem. Allah is referring to this in the End Times, insha’Allah. It refers to the time of our Prophet (saas), but also to the End Times.

So woe to those who pray,”

This refers to those bigots. Because bigots pray, but are frauds. That is why Allah says, So woe to those who pray, and are forgetful of their prayer,”

In other words, they have added other nonsense onto prayer. They have made prayer very complicated, And they do not pray, as a result. If they do, it is just for show. The verse refers to “those who show off.” They show off with their turbans and robes and twigs for cleaning the teeth, but in practice they are not sincere in their Islam. That is what the verse is referring to. It describes the bigots. Those actually truly are one thing, but those who just show off are another .

and deny help to others.”

Not even a bit of help; not even five or ten lira; they even prevent that being given. The hinder even that with their greedy eyes, Allah says.

Surat al-Fil, 1-5

In the name of Allah, All-Merciful, Most Merciful

 “Do you not see what your Lord did with the Companions of the Elephant?”

They may have tanks, or shells, fighter planes or great power. The Qur’an refers to the biggest animal of the time. “Did you not see” what Allah did to those who had the strongest armies, possessed the greatest states and the most power and might? Allah overthrows them with storms, hurricanes, afflictions, high costs of living and a thousand other scourges.

Did He not bring all their schemes to nothing?”

For example, they are preparing a plan called the Great Middle East Project. To fragment the Islamic world still further. But Allah has thwarted their plans, through the way of the Mahdi. He also thwarted it through the followers of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and the Prophet Jesus (pbuh). I am referring to that aspect dealing with the End Times.

unleashing upon them flock after flock of birds,”

Almighty Allah sometimes prevents corruption with birds, sometimes with airplanes and sometimes with His servants.

“bombarding them with stones of hard-baked clay,”

If a country, state or nation has come to deserve punishment, then Almighty Allah may sometimes inflict war on them. He may send planes in the form of birds, flocks of birds. And homes are demolished by the bombs dropped by the planes, and they are buried under them. We saw that happen in the First and Second World Wars. Indeed, the abjad value of the verse gives the date of the start of World War One. This is of course highly significant. “…bombarding them with stones of hard-baked clay,”

When their homes collapse, those baked bricks fall on people’s heads. That is what this refers to, insha’Allah.

making them like stripped wheat-stalks eaten bare”

They are demolished. Like the Germans after the war, after the war against Russia, or the Italians in their wars. We see cities demolished like bare stalks in all the pictures of Europe. They did not give alms to Allah, so He took all their possessions from them. They did not go on the hajj, so He made them walk for hundreds of kilometers. They did not pray, so Allah brought mountains down on their heads, and inflicted troops on them for months and years. But has they been grateful to Allah, neither those wars nor those afflictions would have happened. Nor that hunger and famine. For instance, they did not fast, so Allah inflicted terrible shortages on them. Shortages that lasted for months or years. They spent days without eating anything. They lived on very little food, just a handful of bread. That was the price for not fasting. The price for not fasting was spending a long time as soldiers up in the freezing mountains. They did not give alms, as I said, so Allah took all they had away from them. But had they given thanks to Allah, none of these tribulations would have befallen them. They would not have befallen the Russians, either. The Qur’an is indicating that. The reference to the elephant stands for the most powerful states in the world. Great military powers. But of course innocent people were killed, and they are martyrs. They spent their belongings as alms. The goods of those who lost their homes went on alms. Their prayers earned them. As I said, they earned merit of giving alms from their possessions. They earned the merit of fasting from going hungry. This all worked out for the best for these good people. But it ended in trouble and affliction for the evil.

A9 TV; 24 October 2011

Alif Lam Ra. Those are the Signs of the Clear Book.

We have sent it down as an Arabic Qur’an so that hopefully you will use your intellect.” In order to think. That is what Allah wants. For people to think deeply.

 We tell you the best of stories in revealing this Qur’an to you, even though you were unaware of it before it came.”

What are the stories regarding the Prophet Joseph (pbuh)? The truth. We see they have been changed in some other places. But what does Allah say here? “The best of stories.” The full truth. “…even though you were unaware of it before it came.” Secret knowledge. Allah gives him [our Prophet (pbuh)] secret knowledge. Our Prophet (pbuh) does not know. But Allah tells him the exact truth of the life of the Prophet Joseph (pbuh). When Joseph told his father, ‘Father’!” Look, he calls him Father. “I saw 11 bright stars,” that means there is something about the number 11. “…and the sun and moon as well. I saw them all prostrate in front of me’.” Another form of revelation. Allah reveals future events to him, but Almighty Allah describes it in circuitous language. His father said, My son, don’t tell your brothers your dream.” What does Bediuzzaman say? “May everything you say be true, but do not tell the truth to everyone everywhere.” It may be true, but there is no reason you have to tell people. “…lest they devise some scheme to injure you.” Meaning he has to behave with hidden knowledge. That means he has to behave cleverly. One should not loudly proclaim everything that is true. Only at the right time and place. One can tell the truth when the requisite maturity has appeared. “Satan is a clear-cut enemy to man." Allah is saying that he is an enemy to Muslims. "Accordingly your Lord will pick you out.” Look, "Accordingly your Lord will pick you out.” He will elevate you. “…and teach you the true meaning of events,” look, there is revelation here, too. Things that will definitely happen. “…and perfectly fulfil His blessing on you as well as on the family of Jacob as He fulfilled it perfectly before upon your forebears, Abraham and Isaac.” In other words, the people of Israel and the children of the Prophet Ishmael (pbuh). Most certainly your Lord is Knowing, Wise.” What is the indication here? The people of Israel will live according to a deep faith. They will fully adopt the spirit of Islam and the Qur’an, and Islam will rule the world. In Joseph and his brothers there are Signs for every one of those who wants to ask.”

For those who ask, but not for those who are not interested. For those who are interested. For those who think deeply, insha’Allah. When they declared, ‘Why! Joseph and his brother are dearer to our father than we are...” They are jealous of that love. You can see that some people are jealous of the love shown to me in this century, can’t you? “…although we constitute a powerful group.” We are a stronger community. “Our father is clearly making a mistake." Look, they can even become so desperate as to accuse a prophet. The diseased, false spirit can do that. Look. “Our father is clearly making a mistake." The hypocrites behaved in the same way toward our Prophet (pbuh). It makes no difference to them. Look at the excesses of the hypocrite; "Kill Joseph,” he says. Look at the solution these people come up with! That savage, ruthless, fascist mindset, that cruelty that stems from a failure to live by the religion. That sadistic mindset. We can currently see that sadism and ruthlessness in many places in the Islamic world. “…or expel him to some land so that your father will look to you alone.Either kill or imprison him. Why? People are crazed with jealousy. What outcome does that jealousy want? It wants him to be imprisoned or killed. One or the other. They want to martyr him. “…and then you can be people who do right” it says. If you neutralize him, you can replace him.

Surat an-Nahl, 97:

I seek refuge in Allah from the accursed satan.

 “Anyone who acts rightly, male or female, being a believer,” in other words, if they behave honestly, with sincere religious observance, doing good deeds for Allah, living honestly and sincerely, fearing and loving Allah, then “We will give them a good life.” There is a miracle here. Their lives are always good. Allah says He will give a good life to whoever it may be.  “And We will recompense them according to the best of what they did.”

Allah says He will also reward them in the finest way in paradise.

Whenever you recite the Qur’an, seek refuge with Allah from the accursed satan.”

Why do we often pray to Allah? We ask our Lord to protect us from “the accursed satan.”

He [satan] has no authority over those who believe and put their trust in their Lord.”

It is not enough to believe and say that one believes. What must one do? Submit to Allah. In all things. One must not fear disease, troubles, attacks or anything else, the ferocity of unbelievers and hypocrites. One must just fear and submit to Allah. He must know everything is created by Allah and submit to Him.  “He [satan] has no authority…” Then there would be no doubts and a Muslim will be at ease. Satan has no compulsive power. One must believe in Allah, and also put one’s trust in Him. In that case, he [satan] has no power over a person. If a person has faith but does not put his trust in Allah, then satan will afflict him. He has faith but no trust in Allah… If one is afraid of this or that, or if one worries whether one has cancer when a mole appears on one’s body. If one says, “I wonder whether they will try and trick me, if anything bad will happen, or maybe a disaster, or if something will collapse on my head…” That is unacceptable. What will happen, will happen. A Muslim must place his trust in Allah, insha’Allah.

He [satan] only has authority over those who take him as a friend and associate others with Allah.” Who can satan use his power with? Those who take him as a friend and place their trust in him. Allah says he will rule them completely. He says satan will have authority over them and  “those who associate others with Allah.” Allah says that satan has authority over those who ascribe equals to Him, who have a hypocritical or unbelieving character. They go astray. Satan sometimes uses children, sometimes a person’s profession or business. “Your goods, sons, the work you fear leaving undone, your fathers, your wives, your business and your homes. Expect these things if you regard your friends as more important than Allah, His Messenger and striving on His path,” Allah says. People like that have gone along with satan. They think about their children, their parents, their families, their business and friends, Facebook and this and that, but they forget all about Allah. All these things are only of any value or meaning when they are for Allah’s sake. They are worthless if not for His sake. Allah tells us to expect these things if one regards these as more important than Him. He says that He will then bestow an appropriate recompense, insha’Allah.

Surat an-Nahl, 102

“so that He may strengthen those who believe,” Some people believe, but are not strong. What must one do? Strengthen one’s faith. But how? Faith comes from the truth, from deep reflection.  “Say: ‘The Holy Spirit has brought it down from your Lord with truth, so that He may strengthen those who believe, and also as guidance and good news for those who submit’.”

The Qur’an is good news and a guide. It is a book that guides one to happiness. If you obey the Qur’an you will obtain happiness, insha’Allah. And it is good news. What does Allah tell us of? Of His mercy. Of paradise. Of global dominion. And of good and peaceful lives in this world, insha’Allah.

A9 TV, 24 September 2011


They asked Hazrat Ayesha, “What was the Sunnah of our Prophet (pbuh)?” She replied, “The Qur’an.” Our Prophet (pbuh) followed the Qur’an all his life. He did nothing of his own invention. The pagans tried to win our Prophet (pbuh) over, and there is a verse about that. But he always spurned them.

A9 TV; 25 September 2011

A person cannot be normally rational without the Qur’an. In other words, acceptable intelligence comes from the Qur’an. One that is forgiving, logical, balanced, encouraging, helpful and capable of self-control … I mean, what is the ideal human being? The Qur’an describes him. People are intelligent thanks to the Qur’an. Without it, they lose balance. The world’s balance has been impaired, as you can see.

A9 TV; 28 October 2011

It is not essential to read the whole verse. You can just read part and leave it at that. Sometimes we can cite one sentence from a verse as evidence, insha’Allah. When you forget something you must call on Allah. There is a verse that says that, insha’Allah.

A9 TV; September 2nd, 2011

There are many people and states commanding the world. But Allah says,” I am over them all.” Thus the real dominion is the dominion of Allah. This means that the entire world must act in compliance with the Qur’an, and the provisions and morality of Allah must prevail all over the world. When we refer to Surat at-Tin, we see this point while considering its interpretation that relates to its application to real life. Its denotation is already apparent; when we read the Qur’an we already understand it. But what I speak of is the one aspect that applies to  real life. I interpret it in a manner that has not been done before. All these are true; these are the firsthand interpretations. I do not make any preliminary study for it. I say whatever Allah inspires to my heart at that moment. This is my general method. I make unprecedented interpretations. And they are all true.

For instance there is a verse about “salat.” The scholars of Islamic law interpret them and we abide by them. But there are also Surah Yusuf, Surat al-Kahf. There are the verses that contain many signs to the End Times. The verses about the imprisonment of Prophet Joseph (as), his leadership refers to the system of Hazrat Mahdi (as). The story of Prophet Solomon (as) also refers to the worldly dominion of Prophet Solomon (as). What is related 1,400 years ago is happening right now. Allah refers to a glorious dominion in the story of Prophet Solomon (as). This has a meaning. It applies to real life. Our Prophet (saas) said, “Five people will dominate the world. As the fifth one, one of my sons, Muhammed Mahdi (as) will dominate the world”. What does Almighty Allah mean here? Allah relates the system of Hazrat Mahdi (as) in the stories of Zulkarnayn and Prophet Solomon (as). In the real sense of the word.

For instance the creation of matter from nothingness is recognized  in the End Times. Allah says in the Qur’an, “I created from nothing.” After the Big Bang theory, they said, “It is true that the universe is created from nothing.” Thus they understood that what the Qur’an revealed was true. This happened at the End Times. Many scientific facts related in the Qur’an were disclosed in this century, especially in the most  recent fifty years. The interpretation of Elmalılı was available then and Muslims benefited from it. At every age Allah sends great Islamic scholars. In the hadith it is narrated that at the beginning of every century, Allah sends mujaddids who renew the religion. Also in the End Times Allah sends them, and He sends Hazrat Mahdi (as) to renew the religion. We are also the vanguards of Hazrat Mahdi (as). I am, for instance, the vanguard of Hazrat Mahdi (as), a person who lays the basis for his efforts.

My interpretation would not be the same with the one made 400 years ago or 200 years ago. Allah makes  mujaddids of a certain era make interpretations that relate to the needs of those people and they benefit from them. Imam Rabbani’s interpretations addressed  the needs of his own time. So did the interpretation of Abdulgadir Gaylani.  Muhammed Mahdi (as) will also interpret the Qur’an in compliance with his own age. Hazrat Mahdi is the greatest interpreter of the Qur’an. He is the greatest mujtahid, and we are his followers. A follower carries that scent. When one enters a garden of roses, he smells roses, insha’Allah. Therefore we also have that scent. Consequently, the fact that Muslims of the past did not know about these issues does not make them believers with imperfect knowledge because they  acknowledged  the main issues. That is what matters. They complied with what is lawful and unlawful and other provisions. Yet it might be that they did not see some of the miracles, and we may also not see some of the miracles they saw, because they witnessed some actual wonders. For instance in the time of Abdulkadir Geylani and Imam Rabbani they witnessed some wonders. We did not see them, but in the End Times we see the miracles of the Qur’an. By  the means of those times they were unable to see them, but with the technology and means of this century we are able to see them, insha’Allah.

A9 TV; September 7th, 2011

In response to the question: “How should we asses verses regarding cutting off of hands or whipping?”

These are verses of deterrent nature. At that time, during the time of our Prophet (saas) nobody committed theft. Nobody. Whose hand was cut? It is very, very, very rare. May be one, two or three cases, at most, insha’Allah. Whipping was also very very rare. They are deterrent verses; they are intended to humiliate. On the other hand, if a Muslim is in need, he says so  and gets whatever he wants. For instance he says, “What a nice vase.” The other Muslim says, “Just take it my brother. You may have it.” Muslims do not have such  greed. What will be stolen? There is no milieu for that. In the time of our Prophet (saas) and Hazrat Mahdi (as), wealth will flow like rivers. Why would one go and steal? If he is mad, then it is something else. He is treated then. A sick person is not subject to penalty. If he needs, he can simply take what he needs. What exists out there that a Muslim can not reach? Food, clothes, anything…There is nothing a Muslim would not get. When a Muslim wants properties, he gets it. This is also the same in Islam. If someone has coveted something, you must say, “Here it is yours.” This is how it should be. No one would ever be in need or hungry. Why would theft be? This is a provision that is intended to deter people, and it is not a penalty that is implemented practically. The same thing holds true for whipping. Is it ever possible that four people can witness adultery at the same time? Allah commands in the Qur’an, “Do not enter homes from windows.” You can not enter secretly. He has to knock the door. The man will come to open the door in his clothes and ask, “What is it?” This being the case, how would those four people altogether witness the state of fornication and whip them? These are the verses that degrade, deter and threaten. Think of a child coveting some kind of food or a toy. You immediately buy it and give it to the child. How nice is Islam! You make him happy right at that moment.

 (Mr. Adnan Oktar’s comment to the question of the audience member who said, “Is there any mention to dinosaurs in the Qur’an?”)

The Qur’an is a Book that outlines  general moral principles and the world’s general system. It outlines the morality that applies to the general, the general structure of science and it guides, encourages. Almighty Allah leaves the rest to us. But Allah also says that He continues to create animals. He creates new animals to ride, for instance. Allah also draws attention to vehicles, cars. Indeed, new species are found in different corners of the world. Species never seen before. New animal species are found, Insha'Allah.

A9 TV; September 8th, 2011

(In response to the question related to the muqatta letters)

They may be the names of some angels. The angel who is in charge with that verse; there are many angels that are charged with that verse. The letters may be the names of these angels. Sometimes the jinn go into action when they hear these letters. When the time comes, we will further explain them. For the time being, this information is sufficient, insha’Allah.

A9 TV; 9 September 2011

His Highness Bediuzzaman made such incredibly beautiful comments. My sincere conviction is that he is the greatest mujaddid of the last thousand years. Some hodjas especially dwell on Islamic law. How are regular prayers performed, how is sajda made…Why don’t you attach importance if that man has faith or not? They say, “Let them have the faith of an old woman.” How would he perform his prayers with such faith? What he means by “an old woman’s faith” is to have faith without giving any thought to it. Faith with blind eyes. Allah commands us to “think.” In the Qur’an, Allah continuously provides us with the signs of faith and wants us “to think.” How would one have faith without thinking? Would one could ever have faith without tafakkur (reflection)? You see the artistry of Allah and His beauties and they form a profound faith.

In almost 80 percent of the Qur’an Allah relates to us people’s error of having doubts about faith. Almighty Allah always says; “ They do not believe.” Allah mentions  people harboring doubts about the prophets, the Hereafter, resurrection after Death and He constantly encourages them into ways that will strengthen their faith. In the Qur’an, Allah wants us to examine the evidence in the heavens, on Earth and the human body.

A9 TV; 9 September 2011

80 percent of the Qur’an is devoted to removing the doubts people have in their faith. This is indeed the essence of the trial. The Qur’an talks about the superiority of those who do not doubt, who resist against doubts and keep their faiths strong. This is the main matter. Regular prayer is very easy. You prostrate before Allah five times a day. This is a blessing, something very fine. Fasting is also easy. You eat your meal at sahur and do not eat anything until the sun sets. It is very easy, Insha’Allah. But faith demands conscience and you must use your mind.

A9TV; September 12th, 2011

However accepting some parts of the Qur'an but not accepting some other parts is among the characteristics of idolaters. Allah states that openly in the Qur'an; "They accept some of the verses and they do not accept others." Now this brother of ours accepts some of the verses and does not accept some others as well and that is not acceptable. Allah says; "You will find the people most affectionate to those who have faith are those who say, 'We are Christians'," in the verse. Why do you not accept this verse? Do you accept this verse? You would not. When you do not accept the verse, you would be abandoning the religion. Allah says; "you can marry Christian and Jewish women," He says; "you can eat their food." Do you accept these verses? You do not. If you do accept them, then the discussion is over anyway. There will be nothing left for you to talk about.


Allah says that if we do not regard the Qur’an as sufficient, He will ruin us, tear us to pieces, set us against one another. What has happened to the Islamic world. It is fragmented. They are at one another’s throats and have been destroyed. Why? They do not regard the Qur’an as sufficient. Why not? This is inconceivable. Allah says, “I will ask only from the Qur’an” But they say, “No, the Qur’an is not enough for me.” “They follow nothing but conjecture. They are only guessing.” says Allah in the verse. “No, I will follow my own imaginings,” they say. This is most astonishing. I talk about the Qur’an being sufficient day and night. But they still say it is not enough. Then Allah will punish and ruin you. You must pull yourselves together. Otherwise a thousand different bits of nonsense will enfold the Islamic world. You will fall into a sea of nonsense, and drown.

A9 TV, 29 April 2012

Masha’Allah. But the Qur’an is not such a complicated book. The Qur’an is very easy. What is lawful and unlawful is quite clear. Observances are described. Allah talks about faith in Him, faith being sincere, love being directed to Allah, avoiding ascribing equals to Him… Not forgetting Allah and basing one’s actions around other people, in other words, relating everything to Allah, Allah being loved and feared with a sincere passion, holding Him in awe, giving thanks… Allah tells people to give thanks so He will multiply their blessings. He says that He wants the best for us, but that we must give thanks and love Him as He deserves, and that we must realize this. There are signs that Almighty Allah describes. Look and think, and you will understand Me from My signs, he says. By seeing, Almighty Allah does not mean that we will see His person, but we will see His signs.

The Qur’an wants us to be secular. Is that not enough? The bigots may be opposed to it, but that does not matter. Forget the bigots. What does Almighty Allah say? Your religion for you, and ours for us. What does that mean? It is secularism summarized in a few words: “There is no compulsion in the religion.” What is that? Secularism and democracy.

A9 TV, 14 April 2012

The Qur’an was always memorized by heart right from the beginning. Thousands of people memorized it in the time of the Companions. Written copies were very rare. The Qur’an was only copied later. It was always memorized. It could not have been changed, since it was always memorized by people. Everyone memorized the same text. When people who have memorized the Qur’an come together they all recite the text as it is written, exactly.

A9 TV, 1 April 2012

The Qur’an always draws our attention to signs leading to faith and to reflection. People think it is enough to pray and fast and that is that. Not so. Allah insists on reflection in the Qur’an. He makes reflection obligatory in the Qur’an. And deep reflection at that. The more they think the more Allah bestows knowledge in their hearts. They see the truth and draw even closer to Allah and their love for Him grows. Allah bestows faith as they work hard and use their heads. That person experiences such a perception. It happens in destiny, but he has the impression that it results from his own hard work. And the faith that results from that is highly valuable.

A9 TV, 31 March 2012

They imagine that when classes in the Qur’an begin being held, everyone will fall in love with the Qur’an and start praying right away... That is out of the question. If people became Muslims the moment they read the Qur’an, millions of copies have been handed out, and there is no question of that happening. Show me one man who does not have a copy of the Qur’an in his house. The internet resolves the issue by itself. Classes on the Qur’an are provided day and night on the television. And on the radio. Most people listen but are unaffected.

The Qur’an is recited day and night in Saudi Arabia and Egypt, but there are still plenty of hypocrites and unbelievers. In Iraq, the Ba’ath party is the most powerful communist party. The communists are the most powerful movement in Syria. Communists are very powerful in Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria. It was the same in Libya. Gaddafi was a communist. He founded a communist system. Palestine was a communist bastion. They used to go there for training. Our well-known old communists all went there for training. They underwent military training in the communist terror camps. Therefore, nothing will come from telling people about the Qur’an unless Darwinism and materialism are defeated. If it did, Islam would already long since have come to reign in all Islamic countries.

Weakness of faith is a great problem. Thousands of verses in the Qur’an speak about weakness of faith. Look, I am not saying merely ten or one hundred verses. There are 6,666 verses. More than 1,000 verses speak of disasters caused by weakness of faith. There are 2,000-3,000 verses that indirectly reference this. Therefore, weakness of faith is very important.


A9 TV, 16 May 2012

He said Let me have charge of it".." By this, the Qur'an draws attention to how merciless and cruel  the capitalists will be, raving people, savage capitalism in the End times, how it could be in the End Times.  That means the Qur'an draws attention to the small capital being swallowed by the big capital; the Qur'an implicates that some big capital owners will be very merciless and cruel and that there will be such a merciless system in the End Times and that the system of the anti-christ will be supporting this raving system. That is a concise and terse explanation depicting Capitalism.

Islam is an easy faith, and that is vitally important.Because that deals a heavy blow to polytheism. Religion is a manifestation of the beauty of Allah, Who enfolds all places and bestows happiness. It means ease and goodness and abundance. The Qur’an is the instruction leaflet accompanying medicine, that shows us how to use this world. It is a manifestation of Allah, Who gives blessings to all. Religion adds color to my life, and meaning. I could not think without religion. Everything would be meaningless, may Allah forbid!The sea would be meaningless, and children and everything. Religion is light and beauty. But some bigots make it into a source of misery, may Allah forbid! They come up with everything that inflicts pain and suffering, with all kinds of bans, with whatever restricts human liberties.


88- Say: ‘If both men and jinn banded together to produce the like of this Qur’an, they could never produce anything like it, even if they backed each other up.’

This is breathtaking when read in Arabic. So perfect is its language and so harmonious, that it has been impossible to imitate it for 1400 years. It conflicts with science on not one single point, and there are no contradictions between the verses of the Qur’an. If a person were to write a book it would contain 100 inconsistencies. It would conflict with science hundreds of times. And this was written 1400 years ago. The Qur’an revealed scientific facts that has not yet been discovered. It revealed such scientific facts as that matter was created from nothing, for instance, that time is relative and that the universe was covered in smoke when it was first created. It is essential for it to be in every home and for everyone to read it. It revealed this 1400 years ago. The Qur’an is light.


27- We have given all kinds of examples to people in this Qur’an, so that hopefully they will pay heed –

A person must heed advice and think. That means that the Qur’an is a book that sets our brains to work very hard. The Qur’an is a book of the brain, or intelligence. We must read the Qur’an and reflect deeply. The Qur’an is a book that will develop people’s minds and intelligence to an extraordinary level. It will develop their powers of judgment and discrimination. It will lead to the development of a very powerful logic. The Qur’an will make the brain very healthy and make people very intelligent. But we must read and reflect on the verses of the Qur’an with great care and try to unravel their secrets. Then one will acquire an extraordinary depth, there will an extraordinary growth in the soul. In other words, the Qur’an is a book that develops the brain and makes it very healthy.

It is very dangerous to interpret the Qur’an dishonestly. For example, Allah tells us to remember Him very often. Someone may say, “All right, I remember Him very much. I will do nothing and I will not preach. But I will constantly remember Allah when I come from prayer.” Then they (the unbelievers) kill children and the whole nation is wrecked. Is there time to wait?

They never talk about Turkish-Islamic Union or Islamic Union. "Why do you not know the Qur’an by heart?” they ask. I say I do not know Arabic. There are 300 million Arabs who do. Many of them are irreligious. Many are Darwinists and materialists. What difference does knowing Arabic make? There are professors who are experts on Islam in America. But they are completely irreligious. There are various teachers at a number of theology faculties in Turkey whom you hear speaking, and they are irreligious. It is faith and loving Allah that count. It is important to know the meaning of the Qur’an.
