He said, ‘Are you aware of what you did to Joseph and his brother in ignorance?’ (Surah Yusuf, 89)
That means that the bigots and the ignorant and the rest will slander Hazrat Mahdi (as) and the Prophet Jesus (as) and will seek to silence and stop them.
"Are you Joseph?,
This means there will also be a time when Hazrat Mahdi (as) is identified. They will ask whether he is the Mahdi.
... I am indeed Joseph” he said.
So Hazrat Mahdi (as) will also make his presence felt with his language.
"and this here is my brother.
He is not brotherless. The Prophet Jesus (as) is his brother and he is his (the Prophet Jesus’) brother.
Allah has acted graciously to us.
In other words, we did it, not by our own abilities, but by Allah’s blessing.
As for those who fear Allah and are steadfast, Allah does not allow to go to waste the wage of any people who do good.’ (Surah Yusuf, 90)
It says the same thing in verse 55 of Surat an-Nur in describing global dominion. Hazrat Mahdi (as) will be patient. Patience is very important. Islamic Union and Turkish-Islamic Union will definitely come about, and you will earn merit and be instrumental in good.
By Allah, Allah has favoured you above us. Clearly we were in the wrong.’
They will be amazed that Allah selected Hazrat Mahdi (as). “Why did Allah choose him as the Mahdi and not our teacher or sheikh? This is unacceptable” they will say.
Clearly we were in the wrong.’ (Surah Yusuf, 91)
This means that many ignorant people will realize the injustice they inflicted on Hazrat Mahdi (as). They still send messages to me saying “we made a mistake,” even though I am part of the vanguard of Hazrat Mahdi (as). Messages come in to the program along those lines.
He said, ‘No blame at all will fall on you. Today you have forgiveness from Allah. He is the Most Merciful of the merciful. (Surah Yusuf, 92)
I will not seek revenge in my own name, he says. I will neither question nor condemn you. I will do nothing to humiliate you. But Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) forgiveness will not save them. Allah will not forgive, even if He is begged 70 times. People will be terrified of Allah’s revenge. Hazrat Mahdi (as) will forgive. But Allah’s forgiveness is different. If He does not forgive you, you are ruined. But Allah still shows them affection.
Go with this shirt of mine and cast it on my father’s face.
This means that Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) shirt will smell very sweet. It means he will wear the shirt of the Prophet (saas).
But when the bringer of the good news came, he cast it on his face and sight returned.’ (Surah Yusuf, 93)
When the Islamic community sees Hazrat Mahdi (as) wearing that shirt, their eyes will be opened [spiritually]. The images they were unable to see will be made visible to them.
And put your trust in Allah. Allah suffices as a Guardian. (Surat al-Ahzab, 3)
On other words, “Abide by the Qur’an.” So you can be at ease. For example, there is no need for me to be worried about what I will say or do. No worrying about what will happen if I talk about Hazrat Mahdi (as) or anything else. Because one is under Allah’s protection. “…then come to me with all your families” (Surah Yusuf, 93)
The verse indicates that if there are families that have fragmented, Hazrat Mahdi (as) will reunite them.
And when the caravan went on its way, their father said, ‘I can smell Joseph’s scent! You probably think I have become senile.’ (Surah Yusuf, 94)
Egypt. The End Times. Pharaoh leaves Egypt. There are now some young idiots who claim that some great scholars’ brains have given way. It is impossible for Allah’s guides’ and prophets’ brains to give way. That only happens with idiots, not prophets. But this is now the final generation. The last Ottomans are all old, 70-80. And they are the lovely banners and lights of the way of the Mahdi. The Qur’an indicates they will be specially protected by Allah and that their brains will never give way.
They said, ‘By Allah! Your mind is still astray.’ (Surah Yusuf, 95)
Again, they cannot resist speaking foolishly. A great guide cannot be criticized. They have wisdom and goodness. If Hazrat Khidr (as) cannot be criticized, then neither can spiritual guides. You thought you were right. But what happened? You did wrong. Your father, that blessed Prophet, is on the true path. You are on the wrong path. The Qur’an shows us the importance of not being deceived by appearances, of looking at the hidden aspects of and wisdom in things, insha’Allah.
He said, ‘It’s merely that your lower selves suggested something to you which you did. But beauty lies in having steadfastness. Perhaps Allah will bring them all together. He is indeed All-Knowing and All-Wise.’ (Surah Yusuf, 83)
A Muslim never loses hope. “Perhaps Allah will bring them all together.” Who? Hazrat Mahdi (as) and the Prophet Jesus (as). They will both come, insha’Allah.
He turned himself away from them and said, ‘What anguish is my sorrow for Joseph!’ And then his eyes turned white from hidden grief. (Surah Yusuf, 84)
From those who do wrong. And what do we do? We turn away from the fanatics, from backwardness. He loves his son with an intense love. There will also be a passionate love for Hazrat Mahdi (as), and for the Prophet Jesus (as) when he comes. A deep love. But he devastates himself by the force of that love.
Great sadness is harmful to people’s health. Allah says that great sadness is wrong. We must avoid sorrow. Sorrow is a sin. But there is goodness in it. It is Allah who creates the Prophet Joseph (as) and who creates sorrow. It is Allah who will bring the Prophet Joseph (as) back. But his father never stops awaiting Hazrat Mahdi (as). He says, I am waiting for my Mahdi. And eventually Joseph (as) appears. First the scent of him appears. We can now detect the scent of Hazrat Mahdi (as), ahead of him. First we saw his shirt, now we smell his scent. The Qur’an is saying that first there will be the signs, before Hazrat Mahdi (as), and that then Hazrat Mahdi (as) will himself appear. Some people’s noses are blocked and they have no sense of smell. And they cannot see. If the shirt and the scent have come, then Hazrat Mahdi (as) must also be here, insha’Allah.
They said, ‘By Allah, you will not ever cease to mention Joseph, till you waste away or are among the people of the grave!’ (Surah Yusuf, 85)
They ask me, “Don’t you ever get tired of talking about Hazrat Mahdi (as)?” “You love Hazrat Mahdi (as) day and night,” they say. Of course I will talk about Hazrat Mahdi (as) night and day, and Jesus, son of Maryam, night and day. I passionately love Allah and His holy prophets. I remember them day and night, and will continue to do so.
He said, ‘I make complaint about my grief and sorrow to Allah alone because I know things from Allah you do not know. (Surah Yusuf, 86)
There is a reference to 1986. That means something will happen in 1986. He is complaining to Allah, not to other people. One cannot say that to people. That means there is a distinction in 1986. That is what it means.
