ADNAN OKTAR: Every person could commit a sin. It is wrong to condemn one another. They are also Muslims. They are our brothers. Even if they did a mistake, they could repent. Allah, insha’Allah, forgives those who repent. A Muslim will be forgiving and merciful. If we condemn everyone who commits a sin, there would be no people left in the world. This is wrong.
All those who steal, rob and plunder; all of them. These are people after all. We will pray for them so that Allah forgives them and turns them to a righteous path. We will strive for them to become better. If someone did a mistake, he can go to prison all right, but he would never cease to be a Muslim. He could go to jail for three years or five years. Then he can get out of prison but he is still a believer, a Muslim. He prays and becomes a person beneficial to Muslims and Islam.

ADNAN OKTAR: Anyhow, one must pray in a positive way. If someone steals we cannot say, “He should go to hell”; we never condemn or curse anyone. He would be tried according to the related articles of the law. Even if he goes to prison, we want him to perform the prayer there and learn about Islam. We want him to regret what he did. The real purpose of prison is to rehabilitate him. He would complete his sentence and get out of prison like a Muslim. We must win people over. Even if there is someone who did something bad, Almighty Allah says, “Show goodness to those who do evil to you and you will see that they will be your friends.”
Our Prophet (saas) says that WHEN YOU FACE WITH RESENTMENT, YOU GREET FIRST BECAUSE THOSE OF YOU ARE THE MOST BENEVOLENT ONES.” Tayyip hodja could change his tune and assume a more humble attitude to do a good deed. In this way, our people will embrace him to the end.

ADNAN OKTAR: For the good pleasure of Allah, Fethullah hodja must calm down and Tayyip hodja must be at ease. There is nothing going on. Such excitement only benefits the enemies of Islam. This mutual tension and stress could be something provoked by satan. Silence and solidarity would be very good, insha’Allah: We need to avoid harsh statements. There is no need for that because later on it becomes more difficult to correct that, insha’Allah.
