Adnan Oktar: ... Money cannot enter the state coffers unless the markets are reactivated. In other words, if the state spends money in one direction, the flow toward the state will be very intense from another. Production will increase. The reduction of interest rates to zero will literally make a huge explosion. The economy will boom. In particular, taxes can be reduced at least by half, or even more. That will really boost the market. But I am particularly talking about debt cancellation. Because that is also in the Qur’an, it is the moral values of the Qur’an. Almighty Allah tells us that ‘it is better for you to forgive when one is indebted to you.’ This costs one nothing but brings more with it. The mentality of me holding on to my money and other people holding onto theirs, AND SENDING THE BAILIFFS ROUND TO OUR CREDITORS WILL CRIPPLE THE ECONOMY. In other words, it will also impoverish the person doing it. He will be indirectly poorer for it. But if he wishes to be rich and earn the approval of Allah, and if he cancels his creditors’ debts, then the market will be restored to live and invigorated, and that money will return to him many times over.

Adnan Oktar: If I were given the authority, I would tell everyone to renounce their debts. Because someone who has debts to pay cannot get any money from anyone else. And his creditor is in the same situation. Everyone is in the same boat. Everyone is paralyzed. It is wrong to latch onto someone without a penny and demand money from him. We must apply the moral values of the Qur’an, the excellent solution of Almighty Allah. Almighty Allah tells us to forgive someone if he cannot pay, to forgive his debt. If he wants to save his own business he must also earn the approval of Allah, because the salvation of the company lies in that approval. In that case the economy will at once be invigorated. They are literally now pulling a dead body about. No good can come out of moving its arms and legs. But if they forgive the debts, then those people can be restored to life. They can start producing and earning again. Then they will go and pay their creditors once they have money coming in. But there are tens of thousands of property confiscation cases going on. Tens, hundreds of thousands of people are being visited by the bailiffs. But there is no need for this. I do not think this is fitting. People need to be treated with love and compassion. Someone may be sitting in a completely empty house when 30 bailiffs turn up. They go there and demand money. But that person would not be living such a life if he had any. That is why compassion, love and forgiveness are so important. It is very important to distribute money to the poor. We must not hold onto dead money. Distributing it to the people will result in great plenty and abundance. But whatever we may say, there is a time for this. These are things that will only happen in the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as), insha’Allah.

'No bailiffs for household goods’ proposal
MHP [Nationalist Movement Party]
deputies have drawn up a bill that may represent a solution to the drama of bailiffs turning up and taking away people’s possessions. If the bill becomes law, bailiffs will not be able to remove household goods.
The suggested amendment to the “rights and goods exempt from confiscation’ section of the Confiscation and Bankruptcy Bill submitted to Parliament suggests that goods and equipment essential in order for a creditor to be able to maintain his business should be exempt from confiscation by bailiffs. However, money, valuable documents, antiques, precious stones and decorative objects in metal will still be subject to confiscation.
The accompanying statement said that the removal of household goods led to the break-up of many families, and went on to say: “The confiscation and repossession of household goods from the homes of the Turkish public, who are already living beneath modern world standards, at a time when respect for human rights has reached the highest level in the history of mankind, continues to be an outdated practice. The goods confiscated do not generally meet the bailiff and sales costs, and are left to rot in warehouses. This is no good to debtor or creditor. Countless business burdens are reflected on the courts as costs that cannot be recovered.” The statement said that creditors’ rights were sacred and worthy of protection, but that business life need to be restructured in the awareness that the removal of household goods should not be involved in debt collection.
