Sheikh Ahmad Yasin is a beloved hodja, he is luminious. He says that 70 people wearing turbans will strive against Hazrat Mahdi (as). The Messenger of Allah (saas) says that, and Imam Rabbani also relates it. Imam Rabbani acquired not many hadiths about the Mahdi, and this is one of them. Imam Rabbani relates how the bigot in Istanbul will strive against the Mahdi and will accuse him of doing away with their religion and of being an apostate. That means that this bigot will gain strength and oppose him.
Hazrat Mahdi (as) is Muslims’ older brother, their father. He protects them and shows them love, he embraces them and teaches them love, insha’Allah. This is a virtue of Hazrat Mahdi (as). Hazrat Mahdi (as) makes people love the Qur’an and teaches them love. People will rejoice in his love, insha’Allah. Hazrat Mahdi (as) is absolutely just and guileless in his judgments. Even if he appears to make a mistake he always does the right thing, insha’Allah.
“I am illiterate, I do not know Arabic" I said. Our Prophet (saas) that Mahdi (as) will not know Arabic, either. Our Prophet (saas) was also illiterate. I am a follower of Hazrat Mahdi (as) and I am illiterate. Even if I read the Arabic [of the Qur’an], our people would not understand it. The aim [in reading the Arabic] would be approbation, to show that I know Arabic. But that would be dishonest. The important thing is for people to learn efficiently and quickly. We will be held to account for the meaning of the Qur’an, not for its Arabic. I act in that light. I concentrate on the Turkish meaning. People do not know Arabic. The important thing is the essence, the meaning of the Qur’an. I am opposed to nonsense and I speak the truth.
Mawlana Khalid Baghdadi is the mujaddid of the 1200s. He was 7 at the beginning of the 1200s. Was he declared a mujaddid at the start of the century? How could he at the age of 7? Bediuzzaman was the mujaddid of the 1300s. He was 7 at the beginning of the 1300s. What happened to their claim that mujaddids are announced at the beginning of the century? Abu Bakr Bakillani was born in 403. He was the mujaddid of the 400s. Did he declare himself to be a mujaddid at the age of 3? There is a mujaddid every century. The important thing is his serving in that century. That century ends when the year 55 ends and 56 begins.
Repetition makes it possible to memorize. Human beings have a tendency to lose foresight and attention. But repetition is very important. It enhances one’s foresight and the intelligence of even the least intelligent. For that reason I speak very clearly because I think of everyone. Islam stands for conditioning. Repetition is very important in conditioning. Our Prophet (saas) would reiterate an important subject at least 3 times
