Explanations of hadiths by Mr. Adnan Oktar
“Before the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), there will be a great event when oilstones in Medina will vanish in blood. In that event it will be as easy to kill a woman as to wave a whip. And this phenomenon will spread for 24 miles, and the oath of allegiance will be taken to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).
In a hadith related from Abu Huraira, it says, “There will be a great event in Madina.” It talks about a great event in Istanbul. “In that event it will be as easy to kill a woman as to wave a whip.” So it talks about a handheld weapon that waves like a whip in the end times. So it is a weapon that waves when being shot. It waves like a whip. What is this? It is either a machine gun or a pistol. It is said that it will be every easy to kill with this weapon. It is a weapon of the end times. “And this phenomenon will spread for 24 miles, and the oath of allegiance will be taken to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).” It is the big event that happened in Taksim, Istanbul. It is one of the greatest events in the history of Istanbul because there is a detail in the hadith: oilstones in Medina will vanish in blood. In another hadith is it said “black oilstones.” Asphalt is considered as oil stones. So it is a stone structure made up of oilstones. You know that everywhere in Taksim is asphalt; black. “… this phenomenon will spread for 24 miles.” It indeed has spread right down to outer districts of Istanbul; it was a very big event. Women got killed there. Automatic pistols were also used. This hadith points to this incident. It is an event of the time of the Mahdi.
MR. ADNAN OKTAR’S EXPLANATIONS ABOUT HELL AND PARADISE
You cannot know who goes to hell or not. God doesn’t have to burn people up. He can say, “I will burn them” but He may not. God doesn't have to do it. You cannot say, “Why do You not burn them?” May God forbid. He may show you as if He is burning them, but He may not. You may think that you will not be burnt but you can be taken to hell. May God forbid. One might think that he is among the saved but he could go to hell.
You will trust in God’s mercy, compassion and wisdom, because He creates your mercy, your compassion and your reason. God makes you ask this question and God makes you give the answer. You didn't ask it, God did. You don't even know. This is called inner knowledge. You see in the movies that people are burning, but actually they are burning in your mind. How could you know that they will burn? How could you? And why does God have to do something like this? But God keeps His promise. God says, “I will burn them.” Do they burn? Yes they do. But are they literally being burnt or not? Leave it to God. This is also inner knowledge.
God promises Paradise and believers see Paradise. Believers also see hell. They come right next to hell. Everyone kneels down to feel the mightiness of Almighty God. Then it is said to believers, “You come here.” They have light both in front of them and on their rights. They are inside a vehicle of some sort. Something like a small car and God says, “There is a driver to their right.” This is a very meaningful statement. Look this is the same as the cars now. It is said, there is “light in the front and there is light on the right.” This describes a car, right? And it is said, “they also have drivers.” They are very comfortable. It is said, “They strongly hope” This is only for believers. Unbelievers cannot have such a vehicle. They just stand. God says, “They hope a lot.” When the doors of Paradise open believers go in. when they go in, they say; “As-Salamun alaikom.” Welcome. “Alaikom as-salam.” Paradise doors are closed behind them and that is it. They are there forever.
There is a need for hell. If a person does not see hell, he cannot appreciate the value of paradise. Almighty God places the Prophet Adam (pbuh) in paradise first. Here He explains very openly. You can understand inner knowledge from this example. Then He says: “I will get you out of here now.” Normally you stay in paradise forever right? He says: “No. I will get you out now because you did not abide by the rules of paradise.” He says: “You did not listen to my word.” Here there is a threat again.
The people of paradise live there abiding by the rules of Paradise. So there is fear of God in Paradise also. They apply what they learn there. They never rebel, because they are scared since they know about the world. He has seen hell and he knows the world. He neither wants to go back to the world nor to hell. Therefore, he embraces and kisses the soil of Paradise because it is a very comfortable and beautiful place. How could it be possifble to leave it? He sees hell any time he wants from a screen. He could never be pleased with the world. They say; “Do you want to go back to the world?” He says, “No, no, no, please.” No one would ever want to go back to the world again. It would be torture to even suggest a person who has seen paradise to go back to the world. It is the same as saying, “Let me take you to hell.” God is the One Who teaches us mercy. We don't know mercy otherwise. God is the One Who teaches us the logic here.
MR. ADNAN OKTAR’S EXPLANATIONS FROM SURAT AL-HAJJ
Surat al-Hajj, Verse 30
Almighty God says; “Have done with the defilement of idols and have done with telling lies.” Avoid polytheism; beware of polytheism and lying.
Surat al-Hajj, Verse 37
God says, “Give good news to the good-doers.” What does “good-doers” mean? It means those who serve Islam and the Qur’an.
Surat al-Hajj, verse 40
“God will certainly help those who help Him – God is All-Strong, Almighty,”
The verse doesn’t say “helps.” He says “certainly helps”. What does “helping religion” mean? It means preaching religion. Telling about Islam from the television, radios and the Internet. Or telling about religion on the streets or visiting people at their homes… It means struggling to help the religion triumph and find strength.
Surat al-Hajj, verse 41
“those who, if We establish them firmly on the earth, will establish salat and pay zakat, and command what is right and forbid what is wrong. The end result of all affairs is with God.”
So if We establish them firmly on the earth. Where is earth? The whole world. Where does the verse point? The system of the Mahdi... Because it talks about world dominion. “Will establish salat''. So students of Hz Mahdi (pbuh) and Muslims will pray then. They will pay alms. They will command the right; what is good. And they will avoid the evil. They will preach the religion. “The end of all affairs is with God.'' So; God says, “I will create the ending. I will make it happen.”
Surat al-Hajj, verse 42
If they deny you, the people of Noah before them denied him and those of ‘Ad and of Thamud
Almighty God says, “If they deny you…”. Now for example we say that Hz Mahdi (pbuh) will come. And they say otherwise. We say that the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will return and they say otherwise. We say that the Islamic Union will be established and they say otherwise.
Surat al-Hajj, verse 43
“… and the people of Abraham and the people of Lut”
“They also denied you'' They also said “You are not telling the truth, you are lying.”
