Love is the portent of believing in God. When one believes in God, love would instantly be formed. God would instantly embed love in their hearts. In the verse, Almighty God says; "As for those who have faith and do right actions, the All-Merciful will bestow His love on them."

2

One might be an atheist. Being an atheist is a crime in the Sight of God, not before His servants. You cannot interfere with that. In the verses of the Qur'an, God says; "Say; you have your religion and I have my religion." One might be an atheist, one might be devout, one might have another religion; all are possible. God says "There is no compulsion in religion."

3

Our Kurdish brothers are radiant and they are very devout. They read the Treatise of Light, they read the hadiths, they sit together and read the Qur'an. That is not what the PKK wants; that is because the PKK is Godless and Bookless.

4

You imagine that you are going to be able to divide this country and disregard the pride, honor and dignity of this nation and then live as you like, is that so? That will never, ever happen.

5

They imagine that they can divide Turkey and still live as they like. That is not something that could ever be done; the Last Day would break loose upon them. Not even a bug will remain alive on the Last Day. The world will merge with the Moon. The mountains will turn to sand. No living being will remain. I am saying this because there is something I know.

6

Animosity against Jews is a mental disease. It is a disease of faith. They are the children of the Prophet Israel (pbuh), they are the children of the Prophet Jacob (pbuh); they are entrusted to us by God. Hatred against them would be against the words of the Qur'an, against the verses of the Qur'an; that is not something that a Muslim could ever do.

7

Politics is like a great sea of troubles. The world of politics is very dark. There is an egotistical and selfish structure. It has cruel methods. There is no room for loyalty and fidelity in politics.

8

A Muslim would not believe in nonsensical superstitions. He would not believe in irrational, impertinent things. There is a rational, sensible understanding of Islam. We can neither make an addition, nor subtraction from religion.

9

ISIS is a movement of the Mahdi, but of course it is null and void. They have deficient aspects. With the appearance of the Mahdi (pbuh) they will be corrected as well. The Houthis are a movement of the Mahdi as well.

10

If I ever let them divide Turkey, may God make me not benefit from life at all. We would not let our country be divided. There will be no presidential system. We will not let them turn our country into a “United States of Turkey”. They should forget about it, that is not possible.

11

One remains standing only with love. When the system of love is disturbed, the whole body falls ill.

12

Well intentioned, truehearted women are very beautiful. When they are filled with evil thoughts inside, their faces would become very ugly and they would lose their sense of reason. They become repulsive.

13

The Prophet Moses (pbuh) was very faithful, and so was his brother. God saved the whole nation for their sake. Or else they would have perished there.

14

Islam is not something that would be spread with exerting excessive energy. God ensures that Islamic moral values prevail. It is also related in the Torah that "God would make religion prevail in the world, merely with 12 people with strong connection with God." There is no need for such a crowd.

15

Islam would not prevail through politics. Revealing and explaining the miracles of the Qur'an, explaining the facts leading to faith, citing the faithful, powerful people as an example, spreading the love of God: This is what we should be dealing with.

16

Politics is very cruel in itself. It is not easy. That is why what those who strive for spreading Islam should be doing is to explain the facts leading to faith, explaining the miracles of the Qur'an, reinforcing their own faith and fervor. Otherwise they cannot cope with such things.

17

Politics is complex. Those who are concerned with Islamic Union will not come up with anything from politics but politics can be directed rationally from a distance.

18

The universe is created for love. Love is the foundation of the universe: Love, compassion, mercy, forgiveness. Saying "You hit me, I will hit you back ten times," is not an acceptable mindset.

19

We need to increase the number of special forces police officers. We need to increase the number of their schools. Our President should do such a noble thing. Special forces and the Maroon Berets. These ignoble PKK militants are being trained for a long time, for 6 to 8 years. Our lions, our soldiers are coming from different corners of our country, they are novices, those dear ones of mine, and then they are dragged into an armed conflict with the PKK. That is not acceptable. The PKK fears special operation forces.

20

Clawing is a characteristic of a lion. Roaring is a characteristic of a lion. Our army would also roar and claw when needed as they are lions as well.

21

The reason why women do not get involved with politics is that it is a very merciless system. It is a system of gossip, a system of corruption; an inconceivable flywheel operates. Wherever you go, you see it more or less. Of course in the time of the system of the Mahdi there will be no such thing, there will be no such merciless system. They are tormenting themselves in vain.

22

The political world is something completely different. It is a cruel, merciless system. It is a system in which the best person would instantly be chewed up, a system that requires an enormous spirit of competition and tough struggles.

23

Without explaining the invalidity of Darwin's theory of evolution with scientific evidence, without subverting Darwinism, communism itself cannot be subverted.

24

Love would not come about out of the blue. God has based love upon a thousand and one different arts. Love is built upon those arts and thus brings about the greatest power on earth. The most splendid power of the universe would thus be formed; the power of love.

25

Love is the goal of the creation of Hell as well. I mean God creates Hell to make people appreciate the worth of love, in order for people to make comparisons.

26

God loves love. He created the universe for love. God, Himself loves love.

27

It would be Hell when there is no love. God adorns Paradise as the abode of faith, He adorns Paradise with love. That is love for God, that is faith. Or else it is not the facilities in Paradise that make us happy but the existence of God.

28

Love is the goal of the Paradise. Let us imagine that one goes to Paradise. Let us assume that there are rivers, fruit trees, mansions; there are vineyards and gardens, there are people, but there is no love. What would such a place be? May God forbid, that would be Hell. It will be Paradise only with love.

29

Love is the goal of religion.

30

The life span of the system of the antichrist is 40 years. What happens in 1979? Mahdi (pbuh) appears. The 40 years' struggle of Imam Mahdi (pbuh) will end about 2019. On the fortieth year, God will give him exoneration, insha'Allah.

31

There is no way to stop ISIS right now. The solution of ISIS is with Imam Mahdi (pbuh), with Jesus Messiah. You will see that there will be profuse bloodshed all through 2015, 2016, 2017. Until 2019.

32

We, as citizens, of course have the utmost respect for law, but judges and prosecutors should be easily held responsible. They are humans as well, just like all other citizens they should easily be held responsible. Only then we would have a healthy, sound Turkey.

33

The Qur'an wants Islamic Unity. The Qur'an wants an imam to be assigned; wants Muslims to have a leader and thus refers to the system of the Mahdi.

34

We would not let Turkey be separated, neither would we let them build prestige for Abdullah Öcalan. They are striving in vain on television. We would not let that happen so long as we are here. Our people would not let them and I would not let them either.

35

They are trying to build prestige for Öcalan. Almost all of our 80 million people – that is because some people are forced to side with the PKK - do not love Öcalan at all. They hate him because he caused the martyrdom of so many of our soldiers; they all loathe him. They still have a grudge against him. Consequently such propaganda would not work. They are pushing in vain.

36

A very good characteristic of our nationalist idealist youth is that they are very brave and tough. All of our Turkish youth should be brave and tough in that sense. Cowardice is not acceptable. Male and female, all our youth should be brave and tough when the safety and unity of homeland is concerned.

37

The spirit deceased Chief Türkeş has given to our youth is one that should be taught in philosophy textbooks, one that should be an official policy of the state. Our youth should be brought up by that spirit. They fail to do this and that is grave danger.

38

Due to the geographical structure of the region, technically the PKK would not lay down their weapons anyway. There is ISIS in the region, there are many radical organizations. These organizations all are out to get the PKK and kill them when they find them. According to their own mindset, PKK militants believe that they have to have weapons for self defence. In this case, that is all that it takes. They would never lay down their weapons, it is not possible.

39

It is technically not possible for the PKK to lay down their weapons. That is a remorseless diversion; that is a shameful, grim and very unbecoming assertion. The moment they lay down their weapons, no one would ever take Öcalan seriously [again]. No one would give him the time of the day, he would become an ordinary prisoner. The weapons the PKK holds on to are the only reason for the respect he is being shown.

40

Our state should watch over and protect our village rangers. Their number should be doubled. They should be provided with automatic, well-made , state of the art, long range weapons, to create a deterrent force. These brave ones should be turned loose upon the PKK like panthers.

41

Prophets would never come up with additional lawful and unlawful acts on their own accord if they are not defined in the Qur'an. There is an explicit verse in the Qur'an about this.

42

Religion is a system that gathers all the beauties of the world inside. There is joy in religion, there is merriness, there is fun, there is music in religion. Ladies can wander around comfortably, they can wear revealing clothes if they like and cover their heads if they like; no one interferes them. They can laugh as they like, they can have tattoos if they like. Religion would not interfere with such things. Religion commands us to have a good conscience and be conscientious, to be honest, to be reasonable, to be meticulous about what is lawful and what is not. Religion is the other name of joy.

43

There is no need for any of these weapons. All weapons will be annihilated at the time of the Mahdi (pbuh); weapons and all other sorts of things made for killing people. People are for loving, not for killing. It is horrible to make things to kill people. All that will be annihilated, insha'Allah.

44

Drones are unconscious beings. They kill everyone; women, children, anyone whoever, they kill them all. Turkey would never arbitrate such a horrific murder. We would not let this homeland be used in such dirty works.

45

A Muslim would never kill another Muslim. One who does that would be committing murder. Instigating murder, arbitrating murder are all like committing murder. Beware! ISIS is a Muslim group. They have their mistakes, they have their faults but ISIS consists of Muslim youngsters. Whoever bombs and kills them would be committing murder. And God says "...the reward of this is an eternal life in Hell."

46

Weapons are the reason for the respect shown to the PKK lot anyway. Weapons are the only reason for the respectful and kind approach many people adopt right now. They would all humiliate them, they would never give any consequence to those PKK lot.

47

The PKK militants are trained communists, Marxists, Leninists, Stalinists. Why should they lay down weapons? They would never do that. It would be wrong to crush our people's determination for struggle by saying "They will lay down weapons."

48

Turkey would naturally be divided in a presidential system. It would be divided despite the precautions taken. Troubles would be knee deep. Troubles would engulf us all around. We should be intensely determined against separation; we need to take intense precautions, because there is a grave danger.

49

One who holds the filth of hatred in his soul would constantly swim in a sea of troubles. One should avoid hatred. One should only put love in his heart. The heart cannot deal with filth and cleanliness in turns. One should only put love in his heart. The heart would feel uncomfortable with filth.

50

Being vengeful is very bad. One needs to see the good in everything; one needs to look everything with love. Being a person of hate is a grave immorality. One should approach everyone with love.

51

Some hearts are treacherous and some are elated. Some hearts are wretched and some are elated. Ladies with elated hearts have very beautiful hearts and are very open to love. Those who fall into treachery keep groveling in vain.

52

Our people do not want a presidential system; it is dangerous. Our soldiers have been martyred for that reason, our police officers have been martyred for that reason, just for Turkey not to be separated. The United States of America is a "United State" as the name says. In the USA model presidential system, Turkey will be formed by states. It is the picture of our devastation. What good would that have on us? We would be broken into pieces, may God forbid.

53

Love will be completely embedded in the hearts of Muslims. Love is the law of the universe, the purpose of the creation of the universe. Imam Mahdi and Jesus Messiah will teach love to everyone.

54

Imam Mahdi (pbuh) is the one who provides an environment for Jesus Messiah. Jesus Messiah comes as a guest, so he would not have such an active task. He would be very influential in the foreign policy of the world; together with his students, he would be influential on people like Putin and Prince Charles of England. But he would have such a significant influence. That is because Jesus Messiah cannot make himself apparent, but that is not the case with Mahdi (pbuh).

55

We will never allow separation in this homeland. May God forbid me the enjoyment of life if I ever let that happen. We, none of us, would ever let that happen.

56

Kurdish people are very dear to us. They are very dear to me, I would give my life for my Kurdish brothers. But we will make life unbearable for these scum of the PKK with the laws and the legal system. You will see this.

57

God says, "Man is indeed wrongdoing and ignorant." God says that people are ungrateful. One needs to seek refuge in God from being ungrateful. One needs to seek refuge in God from being wrongdoing and ignorant.

58

Loving God as is due is very important, it is the most important. One needs to give his attention to God, understand His Greatness well and love Him greatly. In the Qur'an, God says; "They do not measure God with His true measure." That shows it offends God. "I am giving you that much blessings, that much beauties, you are to appreciate Me." Yet people fail to do that.

59

Humans die, atoms don't. They continue with their regular, great energy. Atoms do not get sick, they don't get cancer, they don't have ulcers, they do not have stomachaches. They put their trust wholeheartedly in their Lord, they continuously revolve around them like a dervish. For how long? For 15 billion years. What ever you do, even if mountains and rocks coalesce into one, even if everything burns out and is reduced to ash, atoms would continue to revolve without even minding. Masha'Allah, have a look at the power God gave.

60

The world is like a tiny piece of dust in the vast universe. We are even immensely smaller than the tiny dust on that tiny being. But Almighty God rules over all of it; He doesn't sleep but we do. He doesn't get ill, neither does He die. He rules over all the atoms in the universe. God has limitless power. It is very important to have the reasoning to appreciate that, to have the attention and will power to appreciate that.

61

With the love of God, with the fear of God, everything would be nice. Everything and everyone ends up loving God wholeheartedly and having sincere faith.

62

The owners of Turkey are very strong. The national idealist youth are the owners of Turkey, the youth of the BBP are the owners of Turkey, the devout youth of the Saadet Party are the owners of the Turkey, the active and lively youth of the CHP, the devout youth of the AK Party are the owners of Turkey. Consequently no one could ever play games with Turkey.

63

The PKK is not a Kurdish political movement. It is a communist movement. They come up with racist statements. In order to persuade people easily they come up with a spirit of racism. In fact they are an open and explicitly Stalinist, communist, materialist, Godless, Bookless structure. Treachery and perfidy constitute the basis of this debased organization. That is the whole issue.

64

The government should put paleontological evidence on display in schools. There are tens of thousands of paleontological pieces of evidence in Turkey. They are in museums. These should be put on display at schools, in streets, everywhere around. People should see these proofs of creation themselves.

65

We would not allow Turkey to be divided. We will never let an American style of federalism be formed; that would break Turkey to pieces. We will not let those murderers out [of jail] either. They will do their time in prison. That is it.

66

Muslims are protected by God from all sorts of devious plots. They are protected at all times.

67

One who does not comply with the Qur'an cannot be reasonable. He might be intelligent, but not wise or clever.

68

Unbelievers and hypocrites struggle against Muslims. They will cause them [Muslims] pain, they will slander [them], they will play games, they will cause troubles, they will make up stories about them. God says "Do not mind their torments" ; what does “Do not mind" mean? It is a religious obligation. It is a religious obligation not to be affected by those things; if one does mind them, that means he is doing something religiously unlawful. It is a religious obligation not to mind, not to value, not to take seriously the games these impertinent people play.

69

A Muslim should see prayers as very important; prayer is the reason why God values Muslims.

70

Reason has a close relation with the Qur'an. For one to be wise, one needs to comply with the Qur'an. The Qur'an equals reason, rationality; reason, rationality equals the Qur'an.

71

There is no such thing as laying down weapons for the PKK. These people have been waiting in caves up in the mountains for 40 years in order to make communism prevail. That is simply wishful thinking; they will never lay down weapons.

72

Inauspiciousness, scourges and troubles would spread all over with Darwinist/ materialist education. Darwinism/ materialism is a system that defies God – may God forbid. And it holds sway all over the world: That does not befit Turkey. We should never accept Darwinism/ materialism and we should educate our youth knowing the truth.

73

Our idealistic youth and the young followers of the Saadet Party should come together and in compliance with the law and the legal system, form a platform displaying a firm stand against separation. The AK Party youth, the CHP youth should also join them and issue statements that display an amazing determination and resistance against separation.

74

Forging an alliance with the PKK against Muslims is a grave immorality; it is ignominy. It is not acceptable for a Muslim to forge an alliance with such a debased, such a treacherous, such a filthy lot of scum.

75

The PKK should be crushed with laws and the legal system wherever they are seen. Ataturk says, " Gentlemen, it should be known that the greatest enemy of the Turkish world is communism. And it should be crushed wherever it is seen."

76

What the coalition forces should concentrate on should be the PKK before ISIS. If they are targeting ISIS, leaving the PKK out, that shows a serious insincerity. The PKK is the most dangerous group in the region.

77

No matter what, a Muslim is a Muslim. One can be an anarchist or a terrorist, he could be anything, but in the end he is a Muslim. He can repent and correct his ways. Once he understands the errors of his ways, he can correct them. But it is not the same with the PKK. That is such a treacherous structure. Their treachery is certified.

78

May God guide those who try to cooperate with this Godless, Bookless, cruel, filthy, cesspit the PKK to the true path and ruin those who are not guided.

79

I do not like disloyalty at all. Disloyalty disturbs me greatly. I hate ingratitude. I do not like disloyalty. If one attempts to stake out a claim to the success of another, that would be annoying and insincere. If one succeeds in something with his own talents, that is fine, but if he attempts to stake out a claim to the talents of another that would be humiliating.

80

It is not acceptable to fire a bullet onto Muslims; that would bring about direness, it would bring about troubles. It is a grave decadence. The reward of it is an endless life in Hell. You preach to a Muslim, you explain to Muslims what the true path is with verses, with hadiths and with the Qur'an. Are you a murderer? What does air bombardment mean? You put them on trial and put them in jail if they have committed an offense.

81

We cannot, we would not fire a bullet onto Muslim communities, organizations or structures that are on the wrong path like ISIS or Taliban. We would not shed Muslims'blood. It is religiously unlawful, it is indecent, it is a dishonor. It is not something one who fears God would ever do. Turkish soldiers would never do this.

82

It is the gravest treachery to make our soldiers kill Muslims. No Turkish soldier will ever accept that. There is no Turkish politician who could make such a suggestion. The U.S. should not aspire for such a thing from that far, they cannot make the Turkish nation commit such a depravity. They should forget about it.

83

Those who want to turn our soldiers into murderers are the most debased ones. Our soldiers would never fire a bullet against Muslims. It is a grave moral turpitude, a grave impertinency and a grave lack of conscience to kill a Muslim.

84

The PKK would never ever lay down weapons. Anyone with good judgment would see this. The PKK would be ruined the moment they lay down their weapons. Weapons mean power. People respect power. Once they lose their weapons, the PKK would be crushed.

85

The PKK would never lay down their weapons. They will continue to acquire position in the Southeast. The only solution is to root them out there within the framework of the law. Anything other than that would not work. It is a gangrenous tissue and that tissue should be surgically removed. There is no other cure for that.

86

The radicals are pitch black inside. The corruption and sedition they have inside would neither draw them closer to Mahdi (pbuh) or to the true path, but only to darkness.

87

Syria should be a whole but there is no place for Al-Assad in Syria. Syria's integrity is of course very important; we would not want it to become a country that is all in pieces. But Al-Assad should be changed and a rational, loving person should come as his replacement.

88

Snobbery, impertinence, sauciness are beneath Muslims. Rationalism, being beautiful and mild, an honest mind, a sharp wit, a proper mindset, one that is far removed from artificiality befits Muslims.

89

We need to talk about a lucid world with an honest, sincere, clear and lucid mind. When everything is explained with the Qur'an, with the verses, a relief and ease is formed in the hearts of people. Or else, if you use the approach of the people devoted to this world towards them, even though they already know that this world will die eventually, it will be like you are literally blown away. Your being blown away would scare them. They would feel relieved only if they see that you are very well aware of the existence of God.

90

The PKK wants to take over the Southeast, to establish an independent, communist Kurdistan and then to rule the whole region. Later on they would want to annihilate the Turkish nation to satisfy the anger and hatred they have inside. That is what they aim for. Troubles are coming step by step; everyone should pull themselves together.

91

Turkish youth are not being educated regarding politics. Many of them are only concerned about how they can strike it rich - to put it in a colloquial manner - how to have fun, how to find a wealthy girl or a wealthy young man to lean upon and how to have them look after their whole family, how to eat good food and find good jobs. But that is not what the goal of PKK is.

92

There are about 300 PKK camps in northern Iraq. They are teaching Darwinism and materialism in those places night and day. They are teaching the validity of communism. Kandil is like an academy up in the mountains, like a communist academy. They are being educated about politics night and day.

93

It is not enough to say "stop" to the killings of women. Stopping the killings of women can only be possible by stopping the Darwinist/ materialist education. If you educate people as Darwinists and materialists, they inevitably start seeing others as worthless as bugs and then they become able to kill them, hang them and chop them up. They become maniacs, they become insane. The best method is to educate people and to engrave fear of God to people's hearts and stop the Darwinist/ materialist system.

94

The Turkish Nation, the Turkish youth should be educated with political consciousness. They should be educated against Darwinism, against materialism. What needs to be done against communist occupation should be taught. Love for God, the Holy Book, religion, faith, homeland, nation, flag should be taught to our youth and that love should be engraved in their hearts.

95

Kobane has become a fossilized city. It is a razed, a ruined city. It can only be an open museum and nothing else. As the verses indicate it is very significant to understand how God brings disasters upon irreligious people and how He saves Muslims. We have saved our devout Kurdish brothers and sisters, those who fear God and brought them to Turkey. It is the PKK/YPG that has been ruined there.

96

The way the PKK will lay down their weapons will not be in the sense we know. They are simply laying down their weapons on the floor only to take them back as an "alleged" self- defense force, as "so-called" soldiers, police officers or gendarme. That is the whole issue. Or else they are not thinking about a weaponless state in the Southeast. They want to found a state, one that rules under the shadow of fully automatic weapons. They are thinking about a comprehensive study with military air bases, fortified locations and long rang defense systems.

97

All the countries with the presidential system are under the control of the mafia. Coups take place in every country with the presidential system. In the presidential system, there is a system that can easily be managed by the deep secret states of the world.

98

There is a lobby for poverty in the world. They are keeping the whole world in poverty by means of a special system. That is a system that has been working unfalteringly for 100 - 150 years. Only at the time of the Ottoman Empire that system did not work; they could not order the Ottomans around.

99

The immunity of judges should be revoked. The immunity of judges has been a longstanding big problem in Turkey. Just like other civil servants, judges should not have immunity either. They are normal people; they can make mistakes. Insincerity, a lack of conscience should also be conceived of as an offense.

100

We only have one enemy; the YPG, the PKK, the PJAK. Meaning the scum and sordid filth of the PKK under every name.

101

We do not kill Muslims. We would not lay hands on Muslims; if they are ignorant you simply train them, you approach them with love and compassion. They should show me a command in the Qur'an about killing Muslims. No Islamic scholar would ever give a fatwa to that end, no Muslim could ever give a fatwa to that end. We would never let that happen.

102

Turkish soldiers will never be murderers; they can never be partners in murder. Who ever sets Turkish soldiers to murder will find reasonable people standing against them. Turkish soldiers would never be deceived by such a stratagem. They will never be a part of such an ugly murder. Those who suggest us to become murderers are acting sordidly.

103

It is religiously unlawful for Turkey to fire a bullet onto ISIL, Taliban or any other Muslim group. That is not acceptable under any circumstances; that would be homicide. We are responsible for preaching Islam with science, knowledge, wisdom and love. We would never be deceived by such an unsavory stratagem.

104

They should put it in their minds that we will never let Turkey be divided. We will never let anyone divide our country, not under the name of federalism, nor in the name of this or that. We will never let the murderers of our soldiers and our police officers be released. We will never let that happen, not at the risk of our lives. We are ready to be martyred but we would never hand over our homeland to these traitors, to the PKK. They should forget about it.

105

The families of our martyrs should never be left alone. Their homes should be like prayer houses. They should be immaculate, sparking clean places in which God's Name is mentioned every day. Their visitors should clean the house for everyone. They should say, "Mother, let us clean the house for you." They should do the dishes if there is the need to do so, they should cook for them if they don't have food.

106

Federalism, local management, united federal states; all those are movements that aim to divide Turkey.

107

Forged faith is very weak, but verified faith is very strong. Haqq al-yaqîn (the total reality of Certainty) is necessary. Without profound faith people become ill. They commit crimes.

108

A big stratagem is in play against Turkey. They are weighing our sight, our voice, our will power. They are checking if we are timid, if we can give up, if we are impassive, or not. Well, my brother you do not know us well enough, we would raise hell. Pull yourselves together. All hell breaks loose in the whole world; we will never let Turkey be divided.

109

Turkey is on a very important turning point; that is why supporting, watching over and protecting patriotic youth is very crucial. It is very important to keep them and their eagerness fit and in shape.

110

The youth should be more determined. The nationalist, idealist youth is very well in that respect. They are educated, equipped, determined, serious and deterrent element of our country. When idealists roar, they cause shivering all over. That shivering can be perceived.

111

It is a miracle that the faces of sordid people are black as night. A contempt and sordidness can instantly be observed on the faces of such sordid people. And there is a lamb-like immaculateness on the faces of Muslims. They are immaculately clean and pure.

112

Muslims are at ease, they are at ease everywhere because they submit themselves to God and put their trust in God; they will be very much at ease when they are resurrected in the Hereafter. For instance, Muslims watch the Last Day in joy.

113

God is Ghaffur and All-Compassionate, All-Merciful. A Muslim, one who fears God would not go to Hell. One who fears God would behave as religion commands anyway. There would be no other possibility. These people are created as Muslims anyway.

114

If a person is faithful, by the leave of God, he has nothing to be afraid of. If he says, "I exist." If he says, "Who created me?" and if he has the power for fearing God, God would not burn those people of faith. Let me state that much to make it understood. What kind of creatures are the people of Hell? They cannot understand those things. People of Hell are dead inside.

115

Iran's policy is shaped directly in pursuance of the system of the Mahdi. They are nurturing an army of a million soldiers, the army of the Mahdi. They are binding everything to the Mahdi night and day. In Israel, they are praying for the coming of the Moshiach three times a day. While this is the case, if you turn a blind eye to that, it would be your loss. That is because history progresses in this direction.

116

You have no attachment to the Moshiach, meaning the Mahid (pbuh), but the whole Middle East revolves around that. Whether you like it or not, that is the case. The foreign policy of the U.S. is shaped in pursuance of Moshiach, the Mahdi (pbuh). So is the foreign policy of Saudi Arabia and of Iraq.

117

ISIL is a community consisting of Muslims with deficient knowledge, with many mistakes; but still they are Muslims. Mahdi (pbuh) will correct those mistakes and inadequacies.

118

The YPG is the enemy of all Turkey and all Muslims. It is a communist, Marxist, Leninist, Godless, Bookless, perfidious organization. It is murderous, mafia-type organization.

119

Mahdi (pbuh) is the one who will lead the first prayers in the Hagia Sophia. He will do that with whom? With the Prophet Jesus (pbuh). Istanbul is one of those places Jesus (pbuh) will visit. The second one is Jerusalem and Mecca is the third.

120

The MHP has an active youth movement. They have an educated, politically, ideologically well-trained youth movement. But the AK Party does not have such a youth movement. That is what the AK Party should do. They should educate a nationalist, patriotic youth that roars against those who try to do harm for our homeland, our flag, our people and our state. That is crucial.

121

Let us teach an attitude that loves, embraces, protects, watches over and respects our Jewish brothers to our youth and to our people. There is a step by step course towards troubles, towards direness; let us stop this.

122

Traditionalist, orthodox Islam is not livable. It is incomprehensibly difficult. You cannot listen to music, you cannot look at pictures, ladies cannot wear beautiful, clean dresses, they cannot be well kept, they cannot be elegant, they cannot dye their hair, they cannot pluck their eyebrows, they cannot beautify themselves.

123

Satan dragged down Islam in the world by specifically complicating it. Complicating religion is a satanic method. It appeared as the product of that filthy mind of the satan.

124

God loves self-devotion, self sacrifice. That is why God loves martyrdom. This is one of the beauties God loves the most. God calls it "one of the two best things." God calls martyrdom and becoming disabled while striving on the Path of God as the two best things. That is one's losing his arm, his leg on the Path of God. God likes this very much.

125

God wants to be loved by people, by His own Spirit, by the ones created from His Spirit. But God wants to be loved truly. For one to love truly, he should not leave God, even when he is in pain and difficulties.

126

One should always think on the side of God. Muslims always look at things with the eyes of goodness.

127

If you think devilishly, the deeper you think the more you get swamped by it. Thinking deeper is not in that sense: Thinking deeper means thinking sincerely. It means thinking with all one's sincerity, with all one's honesty, with good intentions, by thinking on God's side, thinking with love for God, never thinking anything against God.

128

A house eventually keeps you warm, prevents you from feeling cold. That is your prison; your prison in this world. If you look at things in the light of faith, your house would be like a house of Heaven. But if you look at things in the light of unbelief, your home would be like one of those cells in the Hell; it troubles you, the walls close in on you, it bothers you all around and makes you suffocate.

129

God says, "Do not worry; just submit and put your trust in Me. Leave it with me. You will be very comfortable even while dying. But if you worry, if you do not submit yourself to Me, you will be hurt."

130

God creates a beautiful world when one puts his trust in God. One should be honest and sincere towards God, in submission to God. When one is not honest, God starts causing pain for that person.

131

ISIL would not make a move against Turkey. Their mistakes, their flaws, their faults will be corrected at the time of the Mahdi (pbuh).

132

Whoever attempts to release Abdullah Öcalan and those murderers would regret doing so a hundred thousand times, let me state it openly. These people are the first ones that the police would drag off using the law and the legal system.

133

Our soldiers are fearless. They live for God, for our Book, for our homeland, for our flag, for our people and for our state. There is no other goal in the life of a soldier. If our soldiers sense that the path taken would lead Turkey to division, no one could ever get hold of our soldiers. No one could ever get hold of our gendarmery and no one could ever get hold of our police. Whoever acts treacherously, whoever acts ignominiously, they would drag them out and reveal them.

134

No one could ever get hold of the gendarmery when the division of Turkey is in question. When our gendarmery sees a treacherous act, they would not listen to anything else. They would do whatever is necessary to be done within the legal system and the laws.

135

Being a communist doesn't make one evil; only if they shed blood do they become evil. Irreligious people aren't necessarily evil but they become evil if they persecute others. Otherwise, these are all their own opinions, we respect them all. I mean these people become evil only if they persecute others, if they hurt others.

136

The whole of the Ottoman army were Bektashis. Most of the Ottoman Sultans were Bektashis as well. Humanity, love, beauty and profundity prevail in the spirit of Bektashism and Alevism. They know nothing about egocentricity. They know nothing about peevishness. Radicals, on the other hand, have formidable egocentricity; most of them are in grave depravity.

137

Fundamentally, the real reason for the emergence of the PKK is Darwinism. The PKK ruined Turkey, as you know. They have martyred our brave soldiers, our lions. This is a scourge stemming from Darwinist education.

138

The reason why people in the Southeast support the HDP is because they are afraid of the PKK, and nothing else.

139

Egocentricity is the main characteristic of the unbelievers. God makes them despised and humiliated as a punishment. And that is what is hardest on them, being degraded and humiliated.

140

The pain the Islamic world is suffering right now is because they have become bogged down into the swamp of idolatry. The Islamic world is suffering a great deal because they have fallen into idolatry. Islam would have prevailed in the world long ago, if they were not in idolatry. They would have lived by, preached and disseminated Islam in peace, in comfort, in beauty and abundance.

141

No one would ever let Turkey be divided. No one would ever release Abdullah Öcalan. No Turkish policeman would ever let that happen. Our police officers are all nationalists. They all are very keen on our homeland, our people, our flag; they all risk death for God, for our homeland, for our flag.

142

Bektashism is not known extensively in Turkey. Alevism is not known extensively. These are immaculately perfect perspectives. They are fabulous teachers of love. They are teachers of friendship and brotherhood. One cannot have enough of their discourses, their beautiful conversation. Their gatherings are nice, their addressing is nice. These people know the secret of maturity, humanity, profundity and wisdom.They are blessed, immaculate people.

143

The PKK has no cause. The PKK only has immorality, perfidiousness, corruption and treacherousness: Having a cause is something different.

144

A Muslim is attacked very often. A Muslim is the one who is attacked. A Muslim is the one with a lot of enemies. If one is a real Muslim, if he is a real man of causes, he would have a lot of enemies. How could one be a Muslim if he doesn't have hypocrites pestering him? Muslims have a lot of unbelievers and a lot of hypocrites pestering them.

145

The lack of a system that is based on faith and love creates a dreadful system. And that rules in this world as an inexplicable trouble.

146

Women are delicate beings, and men are responsible for looking after them in the best possible way. But if you approach them thinking that they are gullible, that would be highly humiliating. I mean if you force yourself onto her, if you have an exploiting mentality, that would be appalling.

147

The thing that the people of Heaven take the greatest joy in their faith in God, their love in God and God's manifesting Himself. That is what they take the greatest pleasure from. Otherwise it is not only the gardens, the tables of Heaven. What they enjoy the most in the Heaven is their love for God and God's manifesting Himself. That is how it is in this world as well.

148

People fail to love one another because there is no unity of the ummah in society. Everyone has a different faith. That inconsistency distresses them and because they are distressed by those inconsistencies, they are unable to love each other. Actually if they attained the unity of faith, if they have united under the same constitution, if they agree with each other, they would be getting along very easily.

149

Every father, every mother in society has a different, specific understanding of religion. Youngsters have such a specific understanding of religion as well. They contradict one another. They do not like each other's way. However, had everyone abided by the Qur'an, they would all become an ummah.

150

Many people in this world stare absently. Passion is very difficult. It can only be formed in very wise people.

151

A Muslim should strongly avoid idolatry. He should use all his will- power, all his attention to avoid being dragged into such a swamp. He should know that everything he rates so highly in this world is empty.

152

The thing you want might be bad for you but you would not know. You persistently want it to happen but actually that might be bad for you. There is goodness in it if God does not grant you your wish. Some people freak out when they are not given what they ask for. It may be that it will bring you troubles if you are given what you have asked for, and God is protecting you by not giving it to you.

153

Let us say one cannot pass the university exam and freaks out. Maybe if you passed the exam, you would go there and die. Maybe it would drive you insane, maybe you will lose your mind, maybe you will lose your health. God does you a favor; you should resign yourself to this.

154

If you are losing something there is good in that. You haven't come to this world to live forever. You lose the smallest things and then obsess about it. What if you lose it? You are exaggerating it; actually there is nothing wrong in it if you look at things rationally.

155

What is the advantage of a lack of trust in God? One would only be suffering and humiliating himself in vain. He would be embarrassed before God. He would be hurting himself and doing something abnormal that is not compliant with reason or logic.

156

Idolatry shows itself with a lack of trust in God. A Muslim is obliged to attain such submission, such trust in God at all costs.

157

Muslims always ask for democracy, for tranquility. That is because in a tense environment, in an unsettled environment, faith does not develop completely. People remain weak. Faith only develops in a peaceful environment in which people can think deep and use their intellect.

158

Almighty God describes security and tranquility as a ground upon which faith would prosper. That is why in a brawling environment, in a tense environment, such progress in faith cannot be attained.

159

Had humanity grasped idolatry and submitting and putting one's trust in God, had they believed in it completely, had they been able to have it settled in their hearts, they would never be in a quandry.

160

There are two kinds of idolatry. The first one is confessed idolatry. For instance, they build up an idol and worship it. That is confessed idolatry. And there is also covert idolatry. That is believing that others, someone or something other than God has power. For instance, it is believing that people have independent power. Actually God is the One Who makes everyone speak, He is the One Who makes everyone speak and do things.

161

Destiny does not change. Actually idolatry is the name for resisting destiny; it is believing that power belongs to some beings other than God.

162

Ascribing partners to God means thinking that a power, a force or any other attribute belongs to someone or something other than God. For instance, something happens and that person thinks, "this one did it." Actually that one does not have the ability to do anything. God is the One Who does everything. All power, all force belongs to God.

163

The defect of the current education system is that they are teaching Darwinism unilaterally Darwinism is a system that totally denies God; people are thus being brought up Godless, Bookless and irreligious in their subconscious. They are brought up not fearing God. When one does not fear God, there is nothing else to do. The scientific response to Darwinism should definitely be taught.

164

Some people believe that it is not possible to think about God while having fun. For instance, when one goes to a wedding or a disco, or when one listens to music on the radio, they believe that God should be forgotten to do so. That is very wrong.

165

All the beauties of life are in religion; there is music, there is fun, there is joy, there is love. Religion covers the whole of life and makes all those religiously lawful. There are very few religiously unlawful acts. Religiously lawful acts on the other hand are innumerable.

166

Mourning is the other name of rebellion towards – may God forbid - God. There is good in something if God creates it. A Muslim would not mourn because our Prophet had prohibited mourning. Mourning is ascribing partners to God, it is a tradition of the idolaters.

167

There is no mourning in Islam. That is a tradition reminiscent of the ancient Sumerians, Hittites, from ancient Egypt, from the idolaters and that is what they are trying to implement.

168

Darwinism lies at the root of all terrorist activities, all acts of violence. The whole Islamic world is Darwinist. Darwinist education should be stopped, there is no other solution.

169

By giving a Darwinist education in schools you are simply saying "There is no God" – may God forbid. You are simply saying "He doesn't exist scientifically but if you want, if you feel like it, you can believe." Then the youth, being unaware that it is fake science, say "Well then we advocate whatever is true scientifically," and become irreligious. That is horrible. Scientific response to Darwinism should definitely be given.

170

All malice, all persecution, all murders are perpetrated by those who do not fear God. Communists, Darwinists, materialists, those who do not believe in God, those who would not fear God. They all emerge from among those who do not fear God. For instance, radicals behave viciously because they do not fear God.

171

There is no such thing as anyone who doesn't have a fear of God going and behaving immorally. But all the despicable people have emerged from among those who do not fear God. That is very important. One who fears God, would not behave like that anyway, such a thing is impossible. All the incidents of rape , all malice are perpetrated by those who do not fear God. That should be known.

172

Jews will gather in Israel in the End Times. That is also stated in the Torah. "I will gather you from all around the world," God says in the Torah. That time has come. That means we are in the times of the Moshiach. It is the time of the Mahdi/Moshiach. Indeed Jews are flooding into Israel from all over the world.

173

Satan would want to blow down a successful Muslim. If that Muslim is doing something beneficial, satan would want to render it ineffective. For instance, he is writing a book, satan would want to stop it. He is preaching religion but satan would want him to stop. He is talking about something good and satan would want him to stop.

174

Satan obtains results rapidly in unbelievers. I mean he gets very fast results one after the other. He can escalate anger to the highest levels instantly so much so that one person goes and shoots another. He makes them persecute others instantly or be disloyal in a moment.

175

A Muslim, a devout person might have difficulties in understanding satan but the disbeliever thoroughly knows the satan. A Muslim wouldn't have such cooperation, such a connection with satan. That is because Muslim wins every time, and thus he takes no account of satan. For instance, he behaves patiently whenever there is something to be patient about, he never stoops to egoism on occasions one might behave egotistically.

176

Satan is an interesting creature. I mean no concrete intervention on humans can be seen during the course of one's life. We understand that he employs methods such as dragging people into sentimentality, into pessimism.

177

Elections under these conditions in the Southeast are not acceptable. The PKK holds sway in the lands there and have buried weapons everywhere, they have threatened and intimidated people. People there are not given the right to chose; they are at gunpoint. Their votes would not be valid. The security of the people living there should be provided before all else and elections can only be held after that.

178

Those who attempt to forgive murderers are the most debased, most ignominious, most honorless, most treacherous of the world. I cannot think of having less character on top of that. There will never be forgiveness for those men and for the traitors of the PKK. Those who want them forgiven are even more debased.

179

The PKK would never lay down their weapons and Öcalan would never want them to do so. Weapons are their only assurance anyway. They have attained this power in the Southeast by means of weapons. They became an addressee of the government because of the weapons they have had. Thanks to those weapons, the pictures, the posters of Abdullah Öcalan became lawful to carry. Those all happened with the effect of guns.

180

An instant counter campaign should be launched to collect all the weapons the PKK has and the organization should be rendered ineffective. The PKK should be brought to their knees. These people are preparing for an uprising in April; how can some people still talk about them laying down their weapons? There are weapons all around the Southeast right now.

181

Struggle against the PKK is waged with science. We would have been very pleased as well if that could be done with poems, legends, tales and songs. But those wouldn't be effective against the PKK. Before all else, the Darwinist, Materialist education should be stopped. I mean an-anticommunist education should be given. If only emotional poems, heroic poems were effective, but they are not; they would only make the PKK laugh.

182

Before the appearance of the Mahdi (pbuh) portents about his appearance will appear. Before entering the rose garden, you smell their beautiful fragrance. Then you approach the rose bush and you find that special rose.

183

Radicals have laid such a heavy burden on Muslims; so much so that they have driven Muslims almost mad. They are unable to turn right or left, it is forbidden to laugh, it is forbidden to talk to women. God wants us to laugh; He wants us to be joyous. Why do you hurt them in vain? They are inventing prohibitions on their own. Laugh; laugh as ever you like, wander around as ever you like, put up the pictures you like at your home, put up statues, let young girls put on make up as ever they like, let them be well-groomed; let young men dance and have fun. These are all lawful and permitted according to the Qur'an.

184

Once the made-up superstitions of the bigots and the radicals are discarded, the immaculate, pure and lucid religion of Islam remains behind.

185

The Nationalist Movement Party means homeland, nation, love of state and love of people. It means fastidiousness and being alert against heedlessness and aberration. It means fastidiously protecting and watching over the interests of the homeland and the nation. The interests of the homeland and nation should be very fastidiously protected and watched over. It means being meticulous; consequently, it is not acceptable to exclude such a successful movement from the national assembly.

186

When they start speaking out against the Mahdi, a cloud of inauspiciousness envelops them from where they least expect it. Troubles rain down upon them from their feet, from their head, from their body. They imagine that these are simply slip-ups. Actually these all happen because they used bad language against the system of the Mahdi and that is why God smashes their mouths and that is the whole issue.

187

The radicals are created as the enemy of the system of the Mahdi. As a matter of fact, their animosity is a special system created to elevate the rank of the system of the Mahdi. Radicals are the people of hell created to elevate the rank of the system of the Mahdi. God elevates the rank of the Mahdi (pbuh) with those people of the hell.

188

The lobby of poverty is under the control of the system of the Antichrist. The Antichrist has been using this system specifically to crush people. It crushes villagers and the workers. It is a special system: It causes pain, it commits murders, it sheds blood. The system of the Antichrist, the system of the satan feeds on that pain. But the system of the Mahdi will stop the bloodshed, stop the pain and solves poverty.

189

There is a specifically attained great lobby of poverty. Mahdi (pbuh) will clear away this poverty lobby, this system that organizes poverty. At that time, the world will become wealthy on its own automatically. But that will be the last wealth of the world.

190

There is a worldwide special organization for poverty. This is attained with the support of the notables of great states, famous capitalists and many central banks.

191

Since the system that organizes poverty in the world will be ended at the time of the Mahdi, there will be no more organized poverty in the world. That is because poverty is obtained in an organized manner right now.

192

The appearance of the Mahdi (pbuh) and Jesus Messiah (pbuh), the establishment of the Islamic Union and a short period in which Islamic values would prevail is what God wills for. We will, insha'Allah, see these.

193

God is being denied openly. That would bring about grave inauspiciousness. This is the reason behind the disasters upon this world. The world is struggling under this scourge and everywhere has turned into a bloodbath. There is economic collapse everywhere; there are disasters everywhere. The fact that Darwinism is a fallacy and that it is false should be explained with scientific evidence. There is no other way.

194

Darwinism, Materialism lies at the root of inauspiciousness and disasters. This should be explained thoroughly. The response to Darwinism and materialism should be given comprehensively. Otherwise that would offend God.

195

Scientifically and philosophically crushing Darwinism and materialism would cause the destruction of the PKK. Crushing Darwinism is the most effective blow. Once you crush Darwinist, Materialist thought you would be severing the lifeline of the PKK. That would drain the minds of the PKK. Once you drain their minds, they cannot survive.

196

We see that some civil servants are timid and do not put their trust in God in standing against the PKK. That is unbecoming. Our Prophet (saas) appeared with a handful of people, with 40 people. A Muslim should be brave and fearless.

197

God's wish would be realized when Darwinism is eradicated from the face of the world. The system of the Mahdi would then prevail. After that, there will be another deterioration and people will return to this mentality.

198

Right now about seven billion people worldwide are denying God totally in chorus. The textbooks of all countries in the world state that man is created as a result of random coincidences from muddy water. All the ministries of education all around the world say that "there is no God" in their textbooks. May God forbid, there is a defiance against God throughout the whole world. Normally the world already deserved the Last Day to come about, normally the Last Day should have come already.

199

By means of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), this scourge of Darwinism that denies God will be annihilated; Islam will prevail and the Last Day will come after a while.

200

In the hadiths, it is related that the Last Day will be put on hold when the Mahdi comes. It is on hold right now; the Last Day is right at our door but God stopped it because of the Mahdi (pbuh).

201

The reason why God sent Mahdi is for him to eradicate Darwinism. This is the main reason. He is sent to do annihilate this ideology that denies God.

202

Such a wide scale denial, in which billions of people deny the existence of God and claim that man is created by coincidences, has never been seen in the history of the world before. There has been very small faithless communities, very small unbeliever groups and the rest of the masses have always believed in God. This is the first time something like that is happening. Such an affliction has never been seen before. We will all see that Mahdi (pbuh) will put away this affliction with the manifestation of God's Name "Al-Hadi" (The Guide).

203

People far removed from God can never be happy. People who do not resign themselves to God can never find abundance and relief.

204

Those grasping the secret of resigning themselves to their fate, those who find that truth and hold onto it are actually holding onto the greatest blessing, greatest relief in the world.

205

Traitors should think carefully. They should be sure that they will get their just desserts without fail. For instance, the PKK will definitely find their just desserts. That is because it is a movement of the antichrist. The movement of the antichrist is certainly transitory. It is a system that is destined to collapse and will certainly collapse.

206

Traps are created in two pieces; one is the trap itself and the other is the trap as it is put out of order. These are created as a block, as a whole. Traps are never created alone. For instance, there is Pharaoh and there is Moses (pbuh). There is Nimrod and there is Abraham (pbuh). There is antichrist and there is Mahdi(pbuh). Antichrist is a trap and Mahdi is the one that puts it out of order. Therefore there is no need to be on thorns.

207

Knowing the artistry of God, recognizing the Greatness of God, brings about plentitude from God; that takes away troubles, brings about relief. When God is forgotten somehow, pain and sufferings never let people in peace.

208

One grovels when he doesn't know about destiny; he suffers. But if you are aware of destiny, God gives plentitude and bestows blessings upon you. Troubles you endure become your religious services. That is because submitting one's self to God in every moment of life is like performing prayers in every moment of life.

209

When one says trouble, people assume that it is always bad. Actually troubles come to people from the Presence of God; so does wealth, beauty, health. Sometimes troubles and illnesses come to us, sometimes beauty. Both of those are from God. None of them come randomly.

210

God is Great in the spiritual sense. God does not need greatness in volume. That is because He is out of time and space. Time and space exists for us, however.

211

Why would a soldier become a soldier? He becomes a soldier because he is ready to die for the sake of God, for the sake of his homeland and for his flag. This is the specialty of that profession. If police officers sense that their homeland is being sold out, they would make life unbearable for those who do that. They would then look for a hole to hide in and say ,"I wish I didn't do this!" The police officers, the soldiers would ruin them with the law and the legal system. The police and the soldiers would make them regret what they have done.

212

The Turkish police would be the first ones to respond if they attempt to divide Turkey. Do you know what Turkish police officers come for, when they join the police force? They come there to die for this homeland, for this nation, for this flag. Policing is the name of the profession that is determined to die for the sake of God.

213

The sole purpose of a presidential system is to lead Turkey towards federalism. The presidential system equals federation. I mean it is a system that would divide Turkey. This is the mentality of the American deep secret state. This is the mentality of Abdullah Öcalan.

214

Some people say, "Why is Syria being razed? Why is Iraq being razed? Why is Libya being razed? Why is Egypt being razed?" They fell into idolatry and idolatry brought troubles towards them. A Muslim should avoid ascribing partners to God.

215

God says that Muslims will be successful so long as they do not ascribe partners to God. Some people fail to understand this secret. I mean if you abide by the Qur'an, you would not fall into idolatry. If you do not abide by the Qur'an and act according to made-up, false hadiths, you would be an idolater.

216

Blessings will increase if one is grateful. What does being grateful mean? It means abiding by the Qur'an, submitting to God and being pleased with what God gives. The man is not pleased with God and is constantly complaining. He believes – may God forbid - that God has treated him unjustly. How could there be blessings, if this is the case? Of course, such a person is not given blessings.

217

God says " If you are grateful, I will certainly give you increase." They do not believe in this. They say "No, that is not what is going to happen." And as long as you keep saying it won't happen, you will continue to grovel.

218

If a person is patient, if he constantly thanks God, God would open the doors to him where he least expects. But because they constantly complain, blessings do not come upon them.

219

God rewards a Muslim quietly. One might say, "I am in misery." God would reward you, if you are patient. If you are not patient, if you constantly complain, how can you expect anything good? Complaining would mean rebellion against God - may God forbid.

220

Sometimes God gives a rank to some people, gives them power, gives them means. You would not be a person of guidance if you say, "Why did God give him such a rank? Why did He give that person that easiness?" A person who -May God forbid - questions God would not be a person of guidance. One should say, "There is a goodness, a benevolence behind this. God knows but I don't."

221

A Muslim should enhance his love infinitely, his compassion, his beneficence infinitely. He should be trustworthy. He should not spy on Muslims. He should not play games and stab them in the back; he should not persecute them.

222

A Muslim should never say, "I have performed my prayers, so I will be able to go to Heaven and that would be enough for me." A Muslim should want his rank to be high in Heaven. There are different ranks, Muslims are in a competition with each other. They should want to reach higher and higher. And there is no end to it; how nice this is.

223

Does the Prophet Abraham (pbuh) ever do anything cruel? No, he doesn't. He is a compassionate, merciful, gentle person. I mean he never engages in anything against Muslims. He always acted in favor of Muslims and there was goodness in every one of his acts. Such people are the people of guidance.

224

The Qur'an defines these acts as cruelty; all kinds of attitudes that would disturb Muslims, that would sadden them, that would tire them or that would intimidate them or spy on Muslims. Cruelty means devising plots against Muslims, setting traps against Muslims. Performing prayers would not save such a person; he should avoid all kinds of cruelty.

225

A Muslim cannot act abnormally. According to the Qur'an, Muslims "have faith and do not mix up their faith with any wrongdoing." I mean, they do not attempt to do any wrongdoing and they never act on cruelty.

226

The whole world is in misery right now because of their stinginess. There are a handful of wealthy people and they constitute, let us say, 1% of the world's population and the other 99% is in poverty. As the manifestation of the Qur'anic verses, the whole world is in misery. If they give up that tight-fisted attitude, the whole world would become rich.

227

Properties are created inside one's brain. A Muslim prays for God to distribute that image inside his brain and that is it. But some are unable to have the heart to give up that image, they do not have the heart to distribute it.

228

Radicals see Islam as unsavory in their own minds. Actually joy and happiness is Islam; Islam is a beauty. But these people consider joy and happiness as unsavory. That makes it a sort of the spirit of unbelievers.

229

The People of Hell are specifically created. I mean they are special beings that are bereft of guidance. They are created with the character of disbelievers.

230

Guidance is a special knowledge, a special spirit, that opens one's mind, that open's one's perception and makes one's brain work. If one is unable to find that guidance, that means he is created as "closed" to Islam. Such people are unable to understand Islam; that portion of their brains does not work.

231

Russia should open the doors to the students of Treatise of Light. Anything to the contrary would bring about inauspiciousness. A country closing doors to the students of the Treatise of Light cannot remain standing. Such a country would be devastated with that inauspiciousness.

232

Dividing Turkey means immorality. Such an immoral one would not be able to live in Turkey. They would all be ruined within the pain of the Last Day. No one should ever attempt to be dragged into such immorality. We will never let something like that happen.

233

Being divided would leave Turkey decapitated. That means dying, may God forbid.

234

If the PKK has a plot, God has a plot as well. The plot of God is greater. The plot of God against the unbelievers, the plot God devised against them is greater.

235

Fighting ISIS, fighting Muslims is not superiority. You educate them if they are ignorant, you explain to them the truth if they are on the wrong path. Nothing can be solved with blood. Blood cannot be cleaned with blood.

236

The US does not let Turkey go into Kandil. That is immorality. I mean what happened to your being against terrorists? What happened to your being against ISIS? What happened to your being against Al-Qaeda? If they are killing one man, these people, the PKK, are killing thousands. They have martyred ten thousands of our soldiers.

237

This homeland does not lack an owner. They are putting on a plot that would fence in the government; that would mean the collapse of the government. I mean, they are trying to drag the government into a federation. That would ruin the government, that would ruin Turkey; that would ruin the Middle East, as well as the world.

238

Beauty and aesthetics are indispensable characteristics of Muslims.

239

Limited things are hard on people. Why does God promise an endless life in Heaven? Being limited gives pain to people, that is why. Limitless, endless things are beautiful. There is a beginning for a Muslim but there is no end. Almighty God has no beginning and no ending.

240

Islam is where love and affection can be experienced in the most beautiful fashion. Muslims are in love with Muslims; they never put a limit to their love because they love with the love of God. Would one be surprised at the love of God? One should not be surprised at the love for other people either. That would always increase. A Muslim could never say, "I love God this much," as that love is endless.

241

Women are ruined in the traditionalist orthodox understanding of Islam. They can neither have the freedom to dress up, nor to laugh, or to sit properly or to walk about as they like. Even their eating as they wish is an offense. They [the radicals] say, "If you let them eat a lot, they would go rampant and cause you troubles. If you let them wear beautiful clothes they would attempt to go out to the streets to show off."

242

They misrepresent Islam as a religion of the grave, as a religion of violence. They make it seem as if a Muslim is the one who hangs others, who chops them up, who beats them and insults them and as if there is nothing else to it.

243

Chopping people up, cutting their heads off and holding those heads in their hands, leaving everywhere in blood, in cries and groans, hunger, unaesthetic, ugly images, depravation; this is the dreadfulness in which a great many portion of the believers of the orthodox understanding of Islam live in.

244

In the traditionalist, orthodox understanding of Islam, the world has turned into a grave; everywhere is a place of torture. The "a cardigan and a bite of food" mentality is the other name of misery. Pain and suffering is considered as a foundation. It is forbidden to laugh, it is forbidden to be joyous; music, paintings, television, everything beautiful is forbidden. All those things that are beautiful, all the beauties that one can think of are forbidden. Only hatred, rage and anger are allowed.

245

What we are talking about is an understanding of Islam that would save the world. There is love, there is brotherhood; there is goodness, beauty, arts and aesthetics in Islam. Women are held in high esteem, women are free, children are free and liberated, young people are free and liberated; there is joy and happiness everywhere in Islam.

246

It is not possible to hold just elections in the Southeast because there is no security in the Southeast. If the HDP wins, it would be illegal. How could a party backed by the PKK be a legal party? How could such an election be held? The elections should be postponed. Before all else the support of the PKK, the PKK itself, should be annihilated.

247

Almighty God occasionally took our Prophet (saas) out of time when he was in a state of ecstasy and he saw all happenings; he then foretold everything and they have all been realized, one by one.

248

If there is an evil person, you would not persecute such an evil person either. You would simply explain to him the truth. If one persecutes another, he would be ruined as well. That menace would multiply a thousand-fold.

249

All countries are full of a hate against Israel. The Torah foretells that hatred against Jews would be widespread in the End Times. If they approach everything with the Torah, if they increase their love for the Moshiach, God will save them from this scourge. Or else that scourge would increase even further.

250

God would not give success to a Darwinist, materialist system. God would only bestow inauspiciousness upon them. Inauspiciousness would engulf them all around.

251

If you bring up a Darwinist materialist youth, they would not have fear of God. You keep saying "There is no God" - may God forbid - and they are thus brought up like that. Abdullah Ocalan also says, "I used to have faith then I started educating myself; I've read biology books and then lost my religion, lost my faith."

252

Turkey should remain as a whole. If Barzani were to join Turkey as a federation, that is acceptable of course: If they want to join Turkey as a great Kurdish region, we would be proud of it, we would like it a lot. For instance, that is the same with Greece as well. They should ally with Turkey and adhere to Turkey. But our homeland is already a small one, Attempting to divide such a small country is highly disturbing for us.

253

The MHP should roar, the party should be even stronger. For instance, it should be stronger with the participations and with votes, their voices should be heard more strongly in the national assembly. The MHP should be the second strongest party after the AKP.

254

The MHP is the active force of Turkey. I mean our people have a youth to loll against and that is the idealist youth. The voice of the idealist youth should be heard soundly within the lines of the MHP. Both the idealist youth and the MHP as a party should speak out loudly.

255

If you are timid enough to hand over the Southeast, any country could break you into pieces. Everyone can attack you. If Turkey gives such a timid appearance, if she appears to lack the power to protect the Southeast, any country could dare to attack. Let us scrape off the PKK from our Southeast regions. All necessary precautions should be taken. If we need to give martyrs, let us give martyrs. Let us save that region from the scourge of the PKK, no matter what the cost is.

256

Life is very difficult, that is how God created. If you put radicalism on top of this like a hump on the back, saying that one should not laugh, one should not go out to streets, one should not talk on the phone, it would ruin society; there would not be one happy person left. One would lose his sanity, one's mind would stop working and one would become unable to do anything, unable to produce anything and would ruin all his artistic capability. I mean it is not possible to attain anything with the traditionalist orthodox understanding of Islam. People would be ruined.

257

The American deep state wants the presidential system; Abdullah Öcalan wants this system. The presidential system has brought disasters to all countries that adopted it. It has caused the collapse of all adopting countries and those countries have all been handed over to the mafia like organizations or coups. That is not an auspicious system.

258

Darwinism is directly an antichrist movement. A system that denies God is a system of the antichrist. Many people are not even aware of it.

259

Darwinism should scientifically be wiped away from Turkey. That is a grave disaster. That would offend God. Such an unseemly insolence has never been adopted against God in the history of the world. There has never been such a fierce movement of the antichrist.

260

Bediuzzaman advanced religion, the truth of religion in Turkey and Turkey cleaned itself of radicalism. The beauty of today's Turkey belongs to these two individuals; first to Ataturk and second to Bediuzzaman. As a result of hidden knowledge, these two appear to be opposing each other. Not everyone can understand this. Their appearing as opposed to one another is the way of the hidden knowledge.

261

Radicals regard women as evil, they see them as the source of sins that ruin men, destroy families and harm humanity. I mean, misogyny is very widespread and intense among radicals.

262

If you regard arts as unsavory, if you despise music, painting, sculpture and architecture, if you attempt to run away from a house with paintings, if you say "dogs are evil, you should chase off them when you see them," such a country would never advance. The reason why Europe advanced is because they are open to arts and science.

263

It is one thing to govern Turkey with the mind of one person and it is completely something else to govern the country with hundreds of minds. Countries should be governed with hundreds of people. The talents and abilities of hundreds of people should be reflected in the state. If everything is carried out with the talent of one person, that would not work.

264

Among the democratic countries, there are not many countries that are governed through presidential systems. There are only three countries and they all are miserable. There is not even one authoritarian country that is ruled with a parliamentary regime. Authoritarian countries have all been ruled through presidential systems.

265

All politicians, all professors state that the parliamentary system is more suitable for settlement and advancement of democracy and that is observed in practice as well.

266

It is not true that democracy progresses in the presidential system. On the contrary, coups happen mostly in presidential systems.

267

Presidential systems have never come to a country through elections, through the will of the public. It has always come about with wars, with revolutions. Presidential systems have always followed incidents, revolutions. I mean it always happened in the form of impositions.

268

All the countries with presidential systems have collapsed, they have all been ruined. That system did not bring abundance and peace to any of those countries. Afflictions have engulfed them all from every aspect. Especially the Asian countries have been handed over to mafia type organizations. The leaders of the Middle Eastern countries have all been ruined and their states have all collapsed. America has collapsed economically. France is about to be divided into three. America is about to be divided as well.

269

There is no time in outer space. Time is a perception and a form of belief that is formed in the brain by making a comparison between one moment and the other. It is a product of the brain; it is a belief. They imagine that there is time outside. There is but one moment, and in that moment everything has happened within that moment. Everything is over and done with in that moment. This is how God creates.

270

God is the One Who directly creates music. Is it music what comes to your ears? No, it is not: It is merely sound waves. The waves come to one's ears but it is not the ear that hears; ears are deaf. They simply transmit the sound waves; they transmit the waves as electricity and the brain listens to those sound waves as music. There is no music; see that there is no music until it reaches the brain. There is no music in the place music is played. It is really weird that there is no music outside; there is no music outside the brain.

271

There is no country in the world in which presidential systems succeeded. They all have ended in dictatorships. It has ruined the US as well and it is about to break up France into three pieces.

272

Under the presidential system, the country gets out of the control of the president. I mean the president remains as a perfunctory leader. Almost everything remains under the control of local administrations and local administrations become even more stronger in time and the country becomes a gathering of small states. Later on, those small states declare their independence one by one. They conduct a referendum and then declare independence. If something like this happens to Turkey, the Turkish nation would not be able to get it back together at least for 200 years and the Last Day would come before that anyway.

273

The goal of America is clearly out in the open. They want there to be a federation, to have separate states, and to have Turkey broken into pieces. That is it. They actually want the whole of Turkey, but because America knows that a military intervention would be very bloody, they have invented such a cunning method. They have inflicted Ocalan on Turkey because of that.

274

A presidential system is necessary for federation. The goal of founding federations is because that is the way the presidential system works. They are trying to impose this system because federation is what they want, that is the whole issue.

275

A presidential system means federalism. Our people are strictly against it because they are aware of this fact. There is no need to insist on this.

276

Abdullah Öcalan says that there should be a presidential system. America says that there should be a presidential system. Both of them are against Turkey, they both want Turkey to be in trouble. Would Abdullah Öcalan want a presidential system for the good of Turkey? He wants it to break Turkey up.

277

Leftist ideologies represent a stunted system. I mean it is a system that is unable to move, one that stalls, atrophies and suffocates the current system. Such a system would not come to power neither in Europe nor in the world. Actually, the leftist ideology in the world has died.

278

For one to enjoy profundity, he needs to have a deep love for God. How could one who is unable to love God deeply love other manifestations?

279

A lover should be willing to risk death for God and should want to sacrifice himself for God: He should be willing to sacrifice himself for God. He should put his life on the line. Some people are very fond of their lives; they want to avoid even the slightest conflicts of interest, they do not want any harm to come to them and say, "I come first." Your loved one should come the first. I mean some people do not want to give anything of theirs, they do not want to present anything of theirs to their loved ones. They are always after saving themselves.

280

In order to be in love, one needs to have a morality like that of the Prophets. One needs to be committed to God and to live for God. One needs to retire from this world. Would an egoistical, selfish person be in love? Such a person would be wearing that cloak anyway. If one is egoistical and selfish, that means it is over for him.

281

Despite being Muslims, ISIS is on the wrong path. That is because they are using violence; violence has no place in Islam.

282

The schools of the Special Operations teams should be re-opened. Let us train at least 40 to 50,000 thousand Special Operations officers. That would be a very good assurance for the state.

283

Federalism means handing over the Southeast of Turkey willingly and wittingly.

284

It is not possible to have a presidential system without the federal system. All the countries with a presidential system have been separated anyway. Both the USA and France wants separation right now.

285

The system of the Mahdi is not a force that prevails in the world only with preaching religion. Right now all the doors to the system of the Mahdi are opening. Is it the system of the Mahdi who does that? Is it the Mahdi (pbuh) who does that? No: God is the One Who creates everything. All the obstacles in front of the system of the Mahdi are being removed one by one right now. The entire system is prepared for the Mahdi. God makes all these changes.

286

While Darwinism and materialism is still being taught, Islamic Unity cannot be established in Turkey. Darwinism and materialism should be intellectually annihilated before all else. Darwinism and materialism offend God; in the national educational system, you keep saying, "There is no God". That is a fatal explanation that would summon the wrath of God.

287

Education is needed for Islamic Unity. Islamic Unity cannot be attained through politics. They tried to do that in Egypt, and Egypt is gone. This is what happens when they attempt to do that with politics. They tried to establish Islamic Unity through politics in Libya and Libya is gone, they tried the same in Syria and Syria is gone. Islamic Unity cannot be attained through politics: Islamic Unity can only be attained through the facts of Qur'an, through the facts leading to faith. Islamic Unity can only be possible with science and knowledge.

288

The PKK, those scum, are using the intimidating power of weapons in the Southeast; the Turkish army should have even more perfect ones.

289

I kindly ask from our Minister of Defense so that they would distribute at least 1,500-2,000 meter range weapons to our soldiers. The quality of the gunpowder and the weapons they used should be perfect. May God not create an event to make them use those weapons, may God forbid, and the face of those weapons are cold yet they are a great deterrent.

290

The lover would do all kinds of sacrifices for their beloved one. If need be, he would sacrifice his own life for God, and protect and watch over the beloved one. He would take great care to prevent her honor, her pride, her chastity, and to prevent any harm to her mind or her body. He would pay attention to her food, her drink, her sleep and everything about her. This is the sign of a lover. He would protect her at all costs.

291

Women are the manifestations of God. Love for women stems from love of God. It stems from the love felt for the manifestations of God. God manifests Himself with His Name "An-Nur", "Al-Jamal". All beauties belong to God.

292

Love based on the love of God would make one madly in love with the love of God. Such a person would devote his heart to God. He would become a helpless lover. His love for God becomes even more intense as he sees the manifestations of God.

293

Living love, if that love is based on love of God, that love is acceptable. If it is not based on love of God, it means nothing. That has nothing to do with love, affection or endearment. Anyone who claims otherwise would be lying. It is love only if it is based on the love of God.

294

We will, insha'Allah, wipe away the tears of our Kurdish brothers. Joy and happiness will replace those tears. We will not let them be oppressed, either by the antichrist of the Ergenekon nor the PKK. We won't give way to either of them.

295

The state should give licensed automatic weapons to the village headmen. That is a very difficult job to do. The PKK scum come to their doors with automatic weapons with a two thousand meter range. How could they come if the village headmen and the village guards had such guns? They would calculate their strength and chicken out. That is why, having weapons against the PKK is very important in terms of deterrence.

296

The reason why the scourge that inflicted the whole world did not hit Turkey is because there is a light, a radiance in Turkey. Or else Turkey would have been hit as well and that would have put Turkey to rout, may God forbid.

297

God brings about abundance in love. We should not feel any kind of hatred or rage towards any country or any nation. Let us put away all such feelings. That would bring about inauspiciousness.

298

A disaster has passed by Turkey. Since there is a beauty, since there is a light in Turkey , that disaster did not hit Turkey. Had there not been such a light, such a beauty in Turkey, Turkey would have been hit by that scourge, just like in the story of the Prophet Abraham (pbuh).

299

There are many little, sweet children with their ringlets in Israel, there are many inoffensive devout Christians and Jews. Why should we assume an attitude against those people? An 80% anti-Israel attitude is a very high rate. That is very scary. That would bring about inauspiciousness.

300

If you feel rage to an inoffensive nation, God would bring you to grief. Let us not feel any rage or anger towards any nation; let us not hate anyone. Let us love everyone. Let us only assume an attitude against tyrants.

301

It is not heroism to stand up to Israel. One needs to stand up against those who are cruel in Israel, whoever they are, if there are any.

302

With a leftist government coming to power, Greece will wallow into a far worse affliction that it is in right now and will fall into a even deeper gap. That is another plot; look, you will see how their economy will go downhill, how wretched they will be and how an indescribable scourge will engulf Greece. This government will soon be overthrown. You will see this in the coming days: I am laying emphasis on this.

303

Our Kurdish brothers are heading towards victory right now. Our Kurdish brothers are about to clean out the filth, the sewer that is the PKK, together with the Turkish army, together with their own brothers. God will plague the PKK and they will be ruined.

304

The closed schools of the Special Operations team should be reopened. The best weapons should be given to those in the Special Operations team. The quality of gunpowder should be increased; we ask that from our state. The number of our snipers should be increased. These are important in terms of being a strong deterrent force against the PKK.

305

The time of overthrowing governments with tricks and deception is over. They should forget about it. Those who came to power with elections will leave power with elections.

306

Without the system of the Mahdi, this traditionalist Orthodox understanding of Islam, this traditionalist Orthodox Shia understanding would ruin the world, let me tell you that much. They will suffer a great deal, but they will understand eventually. These troubles will only come to an end with the Mahdi (pbuh), not any other way.

307

If you believe and say that those who do not perform prayers and who do not give alms should be killed, the European Union would not accept you. But if you approach them with the spirit of the system of the Mahdi, with the morality of the Qur’an, Europe would be happy to be beside you.

308

We will enter the European Union in the time of the Mahdi. That radicalism will then be erased and people would not consider music as unlawful and will be respectful towards women wearing revealing clothes. Statues, paintings, music; these are all beauties. If you create a mass of people who are against all these, Europe would not want to take you in.

309

Not everything about a person would be good. Good people have flaws as well. 90 % of that person is good; talk about those good characteristics, then you can mention those 10 % mistakes. But if you ignore that 90%, that would be cruelty.

310

Hazrat Mahdi’s (pbuh) interpretation of the Qur’an is different, and the interpretation of the antichrist is different. Some of the Evangelicals interpret according to the antichrist; if you interpret with the spirit of the Mahdi, the result will be divine. That is why Mahdi (pbuh) is awaited in the End Times. Right now, there is the interpretations of the antichrist. Only violence will come about from the interpretations of the antichrist.

311

The salvation of Africa is in the End Times. The whole history of Africa has passed with sufferings. Their ordeals will come to an end only with the system of the Mahdi but those ordeals will, insha’Allah, return to them as a beauty. Those pains, those ordeals will have a perfect return for those who are faithful; the gardens of Paradise, the tables of Paradise and above all else the good pleasure of God.

312

Music heals the soul. We are having conversations here and we are also presenting useful information; these heal the mind. But music heals the soul. Beautiful people heal the soul as well. So our souls are healed here in our conversations.

313

Poverty is a situation specifically created in this world. But the Archangel Michael is behind this; I mean there is a secret in this.

314

Before the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), an amazing wave of disasters will engulf the whole of Europe. God will remind people of Himself and an age of peace will then start.

315

Movements against the system of the Mahdi are unprecedentedly high in number, as has never been seen in the history of Islam. If the number of the movements against the system of the Mahdi was perhaps one back in the history of Islam, it is about a million now. I mean it has increased a million times.

316

Islam prevails everywhere. One can mention the Name of God while having fun or in a wedding. There is no such thing as saying one cannot talk about God in a place of entertainment. This is the result of a mindset that tries to spread irreligiousness presenting it as if it is something in demand. That is because people are very fond of music and entertainment. These people say “Do not talk about God when there is music and entertainment. Simply keep quiet.” Irreligiousness is the result of such a mentality.

317

Lawsuits should be brought in international courts against European countries that provide money or weapons to the PKK. That is because those states are supporting a terrorist organization, and thus they are acting as terrorists themselves.

318

Diseases progress when the resistance of the body drops. People should be jolly, they should be full of love. Hatred fuels illnesses, it causes cancer to progress. They should not keep hatred or rage in their hearts. Love nourishes the body. They should look at everything as a manifestation of God and approach all things with love.

319

There is no such thing to be called a presidential system and there will not be. This is a system being suggested in order to divide Turkey. We will never accept it. They should forget about this. A parliamentary system is the most beautiful system.

320

Diyarbakır is a radiant city. These PKK scum polluted that radiant city. We will clean those scum away.

321

There is a mafia structure in the Southeast; this mafia should be wiped out. They should postpone the elections for six months. This filth should be cleansed and the elections should be held only after that.

322

Let us first wipe away the filth of the PKK and then hold the elections. Under this heavy threat, in this vileness, holding elections is not reasonable. The Southeast would then be handed over to the PKK, may God forbid.

323

This world would never be without pain or suffering. Pain is in the origin of love. Life has no meaning without love anyway. There has to be pain, people have to go through ordeals.

324

Some people say, “What if God did not create pain?” Well then you would be obtuse. Let us say that you have gone by the river in Heaven; you would simply look at it with vain eyes. But if you have suffered through ordeals, you would kiss each and every single one of the pebble stones in Heaven numerous times. Almighty God gives people a lengthy life and makes them experience these ordeals because it is crucial. After that people people return to normal.

325

Some people ask, “Why does God create pain?” There is beauty in the essence of pain that is why. Paradise cannot be attained without pain. There is no love without pain. A person would then be obtuse. One needs to go through all these ordeals and pains to gain that profundity.

326

The US is in trouble, they are fed up with the presidential system and they want to rid themselves off the presidential system. The Parliamentary system is the wisest of all. The countries that have presidential systems in the Southeast or Asia have all turned into dictatorships and either ruined their people, or bloodily collapsed and ruined their leadership.

327

A presidential system is highly dangerous for Turkey. This would be the source of many troubles. There is a plot behind it, a plot to break up Turkey.

328

We need to be as comfortable as we are in our homes in Diyarbakır, in Mardin, in Siirt: Only then we can talk about Great Turkey.

329

God wished to make Islam prevail in destiny. This is not possible with artificial systems and fake Mahdis. I mean, Islam would not prevail by planning by making mere arrangements.

330

Praying is important. Saying a prayer is the most important strength of a Muslim; that is because God is the One Who controls all incidents at every moment.

331

Muslims should constantly pray to God for the ruin of those who strive to disintegrate Turkey. They should pray to God to ruin those who try to legalize the PKK and the murders they committed.

332

May God damn all those who open the door for the disintegration of Turkey. May God ruin all those who strive to disintegrate Turkey. May God ruin all those in this sinister plot. May God put fear in them, may He make them terrified. Praying is what Muslims should do in the face of this danger.

333

God sent ISIS as a scourge upon the PKK. It is a celestial disaster sent upon them; it is a celestial scourge. God sent upon them a scourge like the one that came upon the tribes of Ad and Thamud.

334

The PKK would disappear if they do not carry out any acts of violence. Consequently, if the PKK disappears, so would the HDP. In order for the HDP and the PKK not to disappear there have to be incessant acts of violence: There is no other way. This is something taught in Marxist education camps day and night as a philosophical and psychological fact. They are taught to constantly carry out acts of violence, even if it is small.

335

Carrying out constant protests, carrying out incessant acts of violence is one of the most important tactics of the Marxist ideology. If there were no acts of violence, the PKK would have been forgotten long ago. Nobody would ever give them the time of the day. But if they keep carrying out acts of violence, that would keep the PKK in a constant ascent - in their own minds - and they would thus gain strength. They are doing these things because they need it.

336

Getting hold of the best weapons technology in the world is a religious obligation for all Muslims. The command of the Qur’an, the command of God in the Qur’an is explicit. Of course we would not want a drop of blood to be shed. But we should make use of the deterrent characteristic of weapons.

337

Whoever attempts to turn this homeland into a hell on earth for us should be well aware that the Last Day will come upon him. If they do not leave our homeland to us, we would not leave this world to them. The Last Day would then break loose. The whole world would then turn into a flat desert. They should bear this in mind.

338

In order to have a deterrent force, the quality of the weapons used should be increased considerably. The special operations team, the Maroon Berets, soldiers should be given state of art automatic weapons. That would make the PKK shiver in fear.

339

There has to be art everywhere, the artists should be protected. By founding a Ministry of Quality and Arts, all the beauties of art should be presented to our people.

340

It is crucial to commission our village guard brothers within the scope of police officers’ posts and it is crucial to increase the number of the village guards. The Southeast problem would thus be fundamentally solved. The solution lies in increasing love first; secondly, compassion and thirdly, the number of the village guards. There is nothing else other than that.

341

Wealth that comes with faith and with love of God is very nice. Only then one becomes generous, only then one becomes friendly and spends his wealth on children, on people. One would then earn plenty but also spend plenty. Right now there is neither earning plenty nor spending plenty. There is poverty everywhere.

342

Intelligence looks very good on women. I mean that intelligent expression in their eyes. For instance, a woman who gazes with birdlike, empty eyes loses all her glory, all her splendor. If one doesn't have such a genuine problem with her mind, it is such witlessness for a woman to accept such an appearance.

343

Jerusalem is a blessed, holy city. A relief comes upon those who visit Jerusalem, they get a grip on themselves. That is a characteristic of Jerusalem. God gave such a blessing, such a relief, such an exhilaration to that city: That is the same with Mecca. Those who go there do not want to come back.

344

There will be other conflicts, other acts of violence. There will be no end to these acts. Without love stemming from the love of God, this scourge will engulf everywhere, this fire will engulf everywhere. But the day that they will start listening will come; about 2019 they will fall on their knees. They will come to understand that the Truth, realness and love is the right way.

345

Compassion, mercy, reason and love is what the Qur’an stands for. Terror prevails everywhere love does not.

346

There are a lot of atheists, there are a lot of irreligious people, there are all those communities against religion, and universities are loudly teaching Darwinism and materialism, but they are unable to stand in the way of the system of the Mahdi. Whatever they do, it ends up being in favor of the system of the Mahdi.

347

Almighty God guides the whole world according to the system of the Mahdi. People are not even aware of this but the course of history leads events to that direction and no one is able to prevent this.

348

There is no such thing as releasing Öcalan, it is not possible. The one who will release him has not been born yet. The Turkish nation will never let that happen.

349

They are not expecting the appearance of the Mahdi right now but they will amazingly see that the course of events is taking them there. Their feet will bring them there, even if they don’t want it. Their tongues will speak in that direction even if they, themselves, do not want it. They will have to think in that way.

350

There will be grave incidents. Other than the appearance of the Mahdi, the Moshiach, there is no salvation for the world. You will be amazed, you will be very surprised but this is the truth. God has planned this for the world and He created everything accordingly. This is destiny. There is no other way.

351

Our unity with Azerbaijan should be formed immediately. We are very close with them, we are brothers and everything we have is one. They should abolish passports and visas and people should be able to exit and enter the country without the need of submitting an identity card. It is not right to prolong this issue.

352

Those drawings they have drawn do not belong to our Prophet (saas). The drawer places a mirror in front of him and is drawing, looking carefully at the mirror. This is the whole issue. He draws himself very comprehensively, in full details and those drawings have nothing to do with our Prophet (saas). Our Prophet (saas) was exceedingly handsome.

353

High quality, state of the art weapons should be given to our soldiers. Instead of those outdated G3’s, very advanced automatic weapons should be given to soldiers. The state should collect these old, outdated weapons. They should be given full automatic weapons with 2,000 meter, 2,500 meter range. Such a show of strength, such a deterrent power, will solve the issue as a whole.

354

We will never give way to separation. There will be no federation. There will be no amnesty. Those who killed our soldiers and policemen will remain in prison for a lifetime.

355

France will turn towards religion, towards Islam: Otherwise, there will be no end to such scourges. These are only small incidents testing them. There are currently thousands of cells ready to shed blood in France. People they least expect are in this. This can only be solved with love, compassion, science and knowledge. It will not be solved any other way.

356

It is of course difficult to take care of seniors, but the good deeds attained by doing that is plenty. God makes it difficult so that the deeds attained there will be plenty. Such good deeds should not be missed.

357

People should keep their grandparents at home with them. That would bring richness to their homes. Placing them in nursing homes would bring about direness. You can provide the same conditions at home as well. You can reserve a room of your house to them and that would bring about auspiciousness to your home. The hardships and sufferings experienced there will bring about goodness.

358

Before all else you should eliminate the idol of the antichrist. You should first eliminate Darwinism and materialism. With what? With science, with knowledge, with reason and thought. Then you will explain the facts leading to faith and the miracles of the Qur’an. Only then people would come to believe.

359

Fear of God is the start of love. Those who do not fear God do not know love. Fear of God is the origin of passion and love.

360

The troubles started to arise after 100 years with all its severity. First, WWI and WWII started because of Darwinism. And now a massacre and a suicide whirlwind has started in the whole world. This scourge will stop with the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), insha’Allah.

361

France thought that it is very easy to be atheists. They presumed that it is very easy to be Darwinists, materialists. They have sown the seeds of the antichrist. The system of the antichrist has now started to bear its poisonous fruits.

362

France presumed that a Darwinist, materialist education, a Godless education, is something reasonable. They have now caused great trouble for themselves. Those Godless, irreligious youth they have brought up is now forming a great army of afflictions, of scourges. Not only the youth of Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria but also the French youth is like this.

363

When incidents are taking place, God commissions His angels everywhere. Nothing happens as a coincidence. Azrael, the angel of death, is the one who takes the lives of all those that die. Taking permission from God, he goes to take the life of a person. The hour and minute of everything is predestined.

364

Jesus Messiah will draw attention with his sharp intelligence and conscientiousness. He will be very faithful, amazingly religious. His faith would never be shaken.

365

Alewism is love, it is brotherhood, it is peace, it is bravery, it is courage. Alewism is a system that depicts love very beautifully. There is profundity in Alewism.

366

Alewism is bravery as the name states. If one feels love for Hazrat Ali (ra) I would love him even more.

367

Seditions would engulf France, Europe and everywhere else. Bloody, very big incidents will take place in 2015. It will be the same in 2016 and in 2017 as well. A relief period will start in 2019. God would not give relief to people unless they hold on tight to God. And this is only possible with the Mahdi (pbuh).

368

If people hold on to God, if they love God, God would love them as well. If they forget God, God says “I will forget them as well.”

369

Fethullah Gulen is a warm hearted, compassionate person. So are his friends. I am his guarantor. These people would never get involved with acts of terror or violence. The Deep State pesters themselves upon them, that is a separate issue. The Deep State and the Fethullah Gulen community and his friends should be differentiated between.

370

No government could ever stand up to Darwinism. Darwinism is perceived to be sacred. All the states of the world bow down in front of Darwinism. But we’ve got hold of Darwinism with science, knowledge, reason and opinions.

371

Even if you add up all the antichrist movements up until now, it wont make one percent of this great antihrist. Darwinism and materialism is such a great movement of the antichrist.

372

There is no such Godless, Bookless movement as comprehensive as Darwinism ever since the world began. I mean this is the first belief, the first Godless, Bookless movement that have taken hold of 6 or 7 million people. This is the system of the antichrist.

373

Freedom of faith; this is the greatest beauty the CHP can provide. They should be close to religious communities. They should show that they will present love to everyone.

374

God would not give comfort to a nation who doesn't love Him. For those who love Him, God would give comfort. France should look for salvation in faith, in the love of God and in the fear of God.

375

Troubles will rain down upon France in streams let me tell you that much. This scourge will engulf the whole of Europe. They are not listening to reason. God did not create this world as a place of fun. Belief in God is crucial. Loving God is crucial. That is the reason of existence for the universe. If you keep away from God, God would not give comfort to you.

376

Unity and solidarity can only be possible with faith in God, with loving God. Without the love of God, the door to disasters will be opened.

377

We should protect and look over street animals in this cold weather. A piece of cheese, a piece of meat would be crucial for them. They would increase their resistance. Otherwise, if they can't find anything to eat, they might die of cold, may God forbid. Therefore, anyone who sees them should give them a piece of food.

378

Surat Al-Kahf entirely refers to the system of the Mahdi. The 55th verse of Surat An-Nur refers to the global dominion of the moral values of the Qur’an. There are many verses. Surah Joseph, the Story of Solomon they all refer to the system of the Mahdi with symbols.

379

The PKK became rabid on one hand, the hypocrites became rabid on the other and the unbelievers became rabid. They are attempting to do all sorts of vileness. Muslims should behave very temperate and very reasonable. They should be aware of the fact that God is the Creator of all movements. They should see the good in everything and act patiently and reasonably according to the Qur’an and respond accordingly.

380

We are at a time when the chains of the antichrist and satan are unreaved. The chains of the antichrist are unreaved. Our Prophet (saas) says- “The antichrist is chained and will be unchained in the End Times.” When the antichrist is unchained, the unbelief will be unchained as well and will start attacking. Tyrants, hypocrites and immorals would then find it convenient to attack.

381

Turkey should discontinue Darwinist education. That would be the greatest blow to unbelief and the system of the dajjal. They would agonize over this. They would move heaven and earth. Explaining Darwinism comprehensively and then giving the scientific response to it would be great.

382

God will foist Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) on people with His Name “Al-Jabbar” and “Al-Qahhar.” It will not be possible to plead ignorance. God wants Islam to prevail in the world. You can resist all you like, but no one could ever withstand God’s wishes.

383

People should return to the Qur’an and for that to happen, people should turn their faces towards the system of the Mahdi. Without the system of the Mahdi, turning towards the Qur’an is very difficult. If it were possible, it would have been done by now.

384

Freedom of thought does not mean insulting everyone, upsetting everyone, hurting them and attempting to suffocate their joy and love. Love should be taken as basis. The concept of freedom of thought is sacred; that is okay, but love is even more sacred, kindness is even more sacred, respect is even more sacred.

385

The bigots say that Islam is the religion of the grave. You live under the soil, you live in darkness in their world. And they say, “There is radiance in their world, there is light, there is music and there is art. There is life in their world, there is dance; such a religion is unacceptable. Religion is lived under the soil, it is lived through with torture. You live in blood and pus and that is what religion is,” they say. And some naive people believe in this. They thus surrender to satan unknowingly. We are spoiling this game and we will continue to do so!

386

As we demonstrate the enlightened face of Islam, the bigots are trying to prevent this beauty in their own minds by crying out with all their might like the cries of bats in darkness. Struggle all you want, it is not possible for you to prevent this in the time of the Mahdi.

387

The life of bigots is full of blood, pus and horridness. There is no joy, no happiness and no life for them. There is only treachery, pretense and gossip in their lives. There is sedition and corruption and all sorts of filth in bigotry, in radicalism.

388

Bigotry promises a horrible and dark life. When we ripped away this scourge, the bright, enlightened, free, joyous, beautiful aspect of religion appeared.

389

According to the radical mindset, religion is a faith for the grave; it is a religion where death and darkness is experienced. In irreligiousness, there is music, there are paintings, there is fun, there is dance and there is life. In religion – according to their mindset- there is no music, no life, no fun. It is like they are buried alive. Everything is unlawful according to their mindset, everything is forbidden and there is no life! It is like the life of a man buried under asphalt.

390

Satan helps those with weak sagacity. Satan attracts them. But Muslims do not fall prey to such plots. Satan doesn’t have any power over Muslims.

391

Muslims and people of faith would always be attacked. Spineless ones with weak character would be defeated. But noble, decent people with strong personality would not collapse and remain standing with the help of God.

392

At the time of our Prophet (saas) they were intimidating weak and characterless people. They were thus preventing them from joining our Prophet(saas). But those with strong faith and personality always remained beside the Messenger of God (saas).

393

Planning to bring in a federative system, planning to break up Turkey and release Abdullah Ocalan: That is a grave ignobility and a viciousness that is far worse than killing. That is a grave sedition. Almighty God says that “sedition is worse than killing.”

394

If you release the murderers, it would come to mean that it is okay to kill people. The push button for the Last Day would then be pressed. The Last Day will break loose.

395

The person who accepts separation is actually the most characterless, most ignoble, most disreputable person of the world.

396

Depravity will be widespread so long as Darwinist education continues, so will scourges and as you see, they do continue to be widespread.

397

The best precaution that could be taken and the greatest slap in the face of communism worldwide is to forbid Darwinist education as a pioneer government. I mean forbidding it in the following sense; teaching Darwinism in details but also giving the scientific response to it. After that there will be no communism, no anarchy, no PKK left behind.

398

Darwinist education should be discontinued immediately. Darwinism can be taught, but the response to it should be taught as well. They have banned teaching the response of it; this is the problem. It is not possible to show the paleontological evidence, it is forbidden to show the fossils that have been excavated; it is forbidden to show those millions of proofs.

399

Even if a million of us were martyred, we will never ever give up a handful of our land. Even if two million people were martyred, we will never give up a handful of our land, Even if three million of us were martyred we will never ever give up a handful of our land. They should forget about it!

400

If Turkey will be broken up into pieces, life will have no meaning for us. I mean there will be no meaning for any Turkish man to live, there will be no meaning for anyone else to live. That is because it will then be a honorless, undignified, ignoble life. There will be no meaning to life for anyone. The Last Day will then break loose. It will be the end of the whole world.

401

Autonomy is never acceptable. That would mean the ruin of Turkey, that would mean the ruin of the whole Middle East. No Turkish man could ever accept something like that. I mean we would fade away as a whole, the whole world would fade away.

402

Granting an amnesty for murderers is the gravest danger for Turkey. That will be the sign for Turkey’s ruin. If one forgives those who martyred our soldiers and police officers, that person is the most debased, most characterless man in the world.

403

A lack of love prevails in the world. People want separation because lovelessness prevails. They want separation and they hate others. For instance, they hate the country they live in, they hate one another. People living in the same cities hate each other. Families hate each other, people hate one another. The issue of love should be solved before all else.

404

Lack of love and egoism drags people into fragmentation. Love on the other hand brings about integration. Would anyone want to be separated from his loved one? One would only want to be separated from those he doesn’t love. One would not want to see those he hates. All these fragmentations in the world stem from a lack of love.

405

God says; “You are the best nation ever to be produced for the mankind.” That is a nation as a whole, in unity like neighbors, like families, one within the other.

406

We are Muslims; Muslims constitute a whole, they are in unity and they do not fragment. God deemed separation among Muslims unlawful. Fragmentizing Muslims is one of the gravest unlawful acts. It is unacceptable for Muslims to be fragmented under any name.

407

All Mahdi movements serve the real Mahdi (pbuh) whether they like it or not.

408

We see that all the enthusiasts about becoming a false Mahdi have gone upside down. That means striving for it would not make it happen, being an enthusiast would not make it happen: God is the One Who creates that person as the Mahdi.

409

Watching the system of the Mahdi, watching the artistry and glory of Almighty God is very important. Our brothers should watch in enthusiasm and attention. Everything our Prophet (saas) has foretold has come true step by step.

410

Acceptance of the Truth only becomes possible after worldwide violence. Without that violence, the acceptance seems impossible. We see this in the Ad tribe and the Thamud tribe and all the other tribes. There has to be violence. People tend to leave this world behind when faced with violence and start thinking about the Hereafter.

411

There is a need for enormous violence for the awakening of humanity and the acceptance of the system of the Mahdi. I mean people do not draw closer to accepting the Truth, unless they are subjected to violence.

412

God wants the Last Day to come and these people want to have fun in this world. The world has gotten old, it is over, the world is done! God wants to create the Hereafter and wants to show the Hereafter to people.

413

The system of the Mahdi is not a movement that is in a hurry. The system of the Mahdi is not going towards a certain point. Incidents come towards the system of the Mahdi. 2015 will be a year of disasters; 2016 will be the year of disasters as well and so will the year 2017 but eventually they will have to accept what they have resisted. The goal of God will eventually come to fruition.

414

The only reason behind the terror God is making them live through is that they do not accept the Mahdi (pbuh). The dosage of the terror, the dosage of the violence will increase so long as they do not accept the Mahdi. You will eventually have to accept the Mahdi (pbuh) as the manifestation of God’s Names “Al Jabbar and Al Qahhar.”

415

God will increase the pressure a little further in 2015. They will start screaming, “What should we do? What can we do?” Later on the system of the Mahdi will become a current issue and they will say, “Should not the Islamic world have a leader?” They will say, “there has to be a leader”. And they will start discussing what they should do. Later on they will start mentioning the name of the “Mahdi”. And then they will start looking for the Mahdi (pbuh). Actually that search will be a mere formality. I mean God will make them obliged in the matter they most seek to avoid.

416

Almighty God will bring the arrogant ones of the world to their knees in the forthcoming days and make them accept the system of the Mahdi. And you will all watch it altogether.

417

They should build churches and synagogues as well. Those were all free to build in the time of our Prophet (saas). God commands Muslims to protect churches and synagogues, not to attack them.

418

If you challenge the system of the Mahdi with D8, if you invent artificial systems in your own mind against the system of the Mahdi, if you do not like the system God created and instead say, “Here is D8 for you” you would be defeated as a result.

419

Some people want there to be no Hereafter, no system of Mahdi and no Islamic Union. They want to dwell on earthly trivia. They want to struggle with problems with checks and deeds. They want to buy cars and sell cars. This is not a place for having fun. When that is the case, God turns this world into a living hell.

420

Almighty God has one goal; this world is not created in vain. God wants to make Islam prevail in the world, make His Mahdi appear, make Jesus Messiah descend to earth and show him to the people; God wants to bring about the Last Day and bring about the end of this world after a short while and make people see the End Times.

421

Whoever feels an affection towards the system of the Mahdi, and feels an attachment to it, becomes exalted and gets stronger. That is because the geography of the Middle East is shaped according the Mahdi (pbuh), according to the system of the Mahdi.

422

Whoever loves the Mahdi (pbuh) God deems them strong. Because Iran loves the Mahdi (pbuh) God takes away the scourge of the PKK from them, He gives them strength and power, he gives them courage. Whoever keeps away from the Mahdi is crushed and ruined. For instance, Iraq assumed an attitude against the system of the Mahdi and it is ruined. Syria, Egypt assumed an attitude against the system of the Mahdi and they are ruined.

423

Iran is already strong and influential in the region right now. That is because they carry an enthusiasm stemming from religion, stemming from the system of the Mahdi.

424

Some say, “Why do we suffer through ordeals in this world? Why do we feel pain?” That is because you are educated through those pains. You become a person, you become a real human being. Otherwise, if you do not suffer through any ordeals, you would simply be dull. Man is educated through ordeals.

425

Love is very important. Suffering through ordeals is very important. Wherever there is a person in need, wherever there is a suffering person, if he is an artist, he would become a genuine artist. A person who hasn’t suffered any pain would instantly be felt. He would instantly be known.

426

A Muslim should be alert against insanity, against running amok; that is a plot of satan. Satan wants to drag people into Hell. It wants to drag people to its side. A Muslim should not accept that because he knows that it is religiously unlawful; he would seek refuge in Almighty God and say, “God is enough for us and the Best of Guardians,” and avoid unlawful conduct.

427

Muslims would never even consider suicide. That is also a form of murder. It is unacceptable. In the Qur’an God says; “We impose on no self any more than it can bear.”

428

We will demolish the rule of satan. The rule of the system of the Mahdi will come. The rule of God, the rule of our Lord will come.

429

Egoism brings about separation. One would hold onto his possessions. This is the main characteristic of egoism. But if there is no egoism, there is generosity. Generosity does not accept borders. There should be no borders, so that one could put his generosity into practice and show his friendship and love easily.

430

Life comes to an end if there is egoism. Egoism is a poison, it is a powerful poison; I mean even a tiny bit of it can kill a society. Egoism should disappear from society.

431

There is richness in unity. For instance, the European countries have united but because the bond they have between them is not a bond of faith, because it is not a bond of love, they are not successful. When the Islamic world unites, the bond they have between them will be a bond of love and there will be no borders, no visas, no passports and thus both trade and friendship will easily be established and sustained. There will be a sound, vivid, lively life based on love and generosity, far removed from selfishness and egoism.

432

Those who come to power democratically can only be overthrown with democratic means. Those who come to power with elections can only go with elections. If a government can easily be overthrown with a few tapes and a few rumors, with such threats it means there is no democracy.

433

Special Operations teams should be supported very well. It would be very beneficial to increase their number to forty thousand in a very short time. The Special Operations teams can vanquish the PKK. Pitting novice soldiers against these scum is very wrong.

434

There is no hatred against synagogues in the Qur’an, there is no hatred against churches. On the contrary, Almighty God says that Muslims should protect churches and synagogues.

435

“Israel” is the name of a Prophet. One should not say “Damn Israel!”. The Qur’an addresses the Prophet Jacob as “Israel”. The name Israel is mentioned in the Qur’an and what are you saying? You are saying – may God forbid- ‘Damn Israel!’

436

The Prophet Moses (pbuh) is our prophet as well and so is the Prophet Abraham (pbuh). Some say “these are the Prophets of Jews and Jesus is the Prophet of Christians.” Actually they are all our prophets, they are all Prophets of Islam. They all are Muslims.

437

The birth of our Prophet (saas) is a feast for us, it is a celebration. He brought light to this world, he shone brightly in the world. May God be pleased with him. We are all very pleased with him; insha’Allah, may he be pleased with us in the Hereafter as well. Above all else is the approval of God of course, insha’Allah.

438

The Qur’an is pure revelation. That is why those who read the Torah should definitely read it with the Qur’an. Those who read the Gospels should read it with the Qur’an. Or else they might get confused and be misinformed, may God forbid.

439

We need to be alert and cautious against the tendency for idolatry. In sickness, in university exams, in the selection of friends, in everything, idolatry becomes a trouble for them. In fact, if they should keep their contact with God and constantly pray and be close to God. Then there will be great abundance.

440

We’ve been entrusted a soul and yet we are made up from the weakest material. Stones are strong, steel is strong, iron is strong, these elements are very strong but flesh and bones are actually the weakest materials. They rot instantly, they come apart instantly. The soul is waiting there inside that shield. When the flesh and bone dies, the soul will be freed.

441

There is no place for conflicts, there is no place for hatred in this world. We will teach love to the world. Hatred is very painful, it is agonizing, it is tiresome and disgusting; love on the other hand is very beautiful. Israel, Jordan and all those places are incredibly beautiful. Make peace, hold on to each other, be brothers.

442

Our National Intelligence Organization Service should increase the number of their people in the Southeast. I mean they should have a lot of people among the public residing in that region. That would be a good contribution for the public and it would be great in respect of security as well. There should be a very strong news flow. We need to be informed about the slightest movement there.

443

Elections cannot be held in places under the threat of the PKK. Such an election would not be valid. If our police and soldiers fill that region and ensure the security of our people living there, and if still the PKK wins the elections there, that might be acceptable but otherwise the people there are voting for the PKK or the HDP because of intimidation.

444

Village guards should have the force of police officers, they should be insured, they should have salaries; we would be proud to provide such means for them. That would be an incentive for all of us, we would be happy with their happiness.

445

There is no such thing to be called the Solution Process: What there is, is actually the PKK trying to widen their field of operations, their field of power in the region.

446

The PKK says that we should abrogate the system of village guards. What does this mean? That means we should double the number of village guards. Now we should be aware that all they call white is actually black and all they call black is actually white. What does abrogating the system of village guards mean? That means this system is the greatest of dangers for them.

447

ISIS should strictly avoid doing any harm to Turkish intelligence officers. They all have good intentions. They are there for the good of everyone. When they recognize one of our brave agents they should deport them back to Turkey and that is all they should do. Killing them is strictly unacceptable. It would be religiously unlawful.

448

Some Muslims imagine that being against Christians' celebrations during Christmas that take place once a year is a great way of striving on the path of God. Instead of being false heroes on that day, they should preach religion all through the year and talk about Islam and preach the miracles of the Qur’an.

449

People vote for those who do not humiliate them. They vote for those who hold them in esteem, who do not look down upon them, for those who do not have such an unruly expression on their faces, who do not insult those they hold dear. They vote for those who love their God, their religion, their faith. That is the secret behind it.

450

The impact of difficulties on Muslims is exactly opposite of their impact on unbelievers. Difficulties directly cause them to crumble . With Muslims on the other hand, difficulties directly cause them to become even more perfect. That is a secret knowledge of God, that is the Hidden Knowledge of God, those who do not look carefully wouldn’t see. Only those who look with the light of faith would see.

451

Difficulties turn into blessings that make Muslims more beautiful and look even younger, that opens the minds of Muslims, increases their profundity and reinforces their foresight and perception.

452

A person who suffers through ordeals and who experiences hardships will become beautiful. He becomes even more beautiful as time passes and he becomes even younger. If the unbelievers live through the same things, they would collapse. But Muslims become even younger and even more beautiful with hardships. These have the exact opposite impact.

453

When one lives among Muslims, even if God gives very limited means, he feels happy. Even if a limited beauty is formed, that feels like a great beauty for Muslims. For instance, a Muslim has a small table but he feels happy with it but that is not the case with unbelievers, they would ask for better even if they have the best table setting. A Muslim on the other hand knows how to be thankful and he thanks God for his position.

454

When an unbeliever looks at a Muslim, God creates a shade before his eyes. They become unable to see the beauty there. They keep saying, “These ones are unable to live their lives to the fullest.”

455

A Muslim should definitely live suffering through ordeals and hardships. For instance one writes books and makes research for God while the other goes around having fun. But Muslims suffer through hardships. Then you look and see that he is very radiant and has become so beautiful. The other one says, “I am living my life in leisure,” but you see that he has become dull and blunt and has lost his meaning. Such a person cannot have fun. He imagines that he is having fun but he cannot.

456

One doesn’t suffer in the path of God, he doesn’t suffer through ordeals or face any difficulty yet he says, “I am ready for Heaven.” You cannot go to Heaven. Do you know what you are? That means, may God forbid, you are a human being created in the form of a man with a beautiful appearance yet without soul. It is impossible for them to go to Heaven. These are created as a special intermediary form for this world.

457

Ordeals beautify people.

458

It is difficult to give a struggle against hypocrites. It is difficult to give a struggle against unbelief. It is not easy to serve Islam for God. Of course one would face hardship; that hardship beautifies Muslims. The difficulties he faced is the reason why our Prophet (saas) was so beautiful.

459

A Muslim is the one who lives by the religion of God even in hardship. Almighty God says; “ For truly with hardship comes ease; truly with hardship comes ease.” (Surat Al-Inshirah, 5-6) A Muslim would surely face such difficulties.

460

One says, “I have lived a very happy life, I have never faced any troubles all my life.” That is not a gain. First of all he won’t go to Heaven. In the Qur’an God says; “Or did you suppose that you would enter the Garden without facing the same as those who came before you?” (Surat Al-Baqara, 214) A Muslim should strive on the path of God, face difficulties and make an effort against unbelief, against the hypocrites.

461

Those who strive on the path of God become beautiful. Those who face difficulties on the path of God become beautiful. Those who do not face any difficulties become ugly, their meaning would be lost, they would become dull and blunt. I mean they would become coarse.

462

‘Red Apple’ is a hidden ideal. It is propagating the Turkish nation’s beautiful customs, traditions and understanding of love that is blended with Islam to the whole world.

463

Being a follower of Ataturk means being modern, being enlightened and sensible, being balanced and consistent, loving God, advocating the unity of the Islamic world and the Turkish world; it means advocating the Red Apple ideals, it means being decent, classy and handsome, this is what being a follower of Ataturk means.

464

People underestimate the importance of the lack of love. Is this not the system that ruined the whole world? The U.S. collapsed, Russia collapsed. They are in a phase of this collapse; they will collapse even further. Europe is ruined; Europe has gone bankrupt. Lack of love, egoism and selfishness is the only reason for that. Actually the world is big enough for all people.

465

The system of the Mahdi is a system that will make Christians, Jews and Muslims friends and brothers to each other. The system of the Mahdi is the name of the system that will unite Muslims without discriminating between religious sects. There is no solution other than the system of the Mahdi.

466

If a nation forsakes the National Anthem, once they forsake their flag, it means they are devastated. There is no meaning to their lives after that.

467

A great majority of those who say that they are the PKK actually hate the PKK. They are there because of this threat. These people have automatic weapons in their hands. The public on the other hand is unarmed. They are saying, “Yes Sir!” simply because they are afraid. That is outrageous.

468

The PKK is bullying our Kurdish brothers. This is very offensive for our Kurdish brothers. They take that to heart. The state, the government should put an end to this ignominy. They should put an end to this vileness the PKK is carrying out.

469

There is no such thing as laying down weapons for the PKK. There is no need to wait for them to lay down their weapons. We should go take their weapons and take them by the ear. We should put those who committed offenses into prison. Carrying weapons is an offense on its own anyway.

470

Our Kurdish brothers are very honorable people. Because those dishonorable scum have guns in their hands they offend our Kurdish brothers and Kurdish mothers intensely. All those weapons in the hands of the PKK should be collected.

471

Police should throw the PKK out on their ears even if they are fleeing to their caves. These are a handful of scum of the earth; they are spoiled. They have become depraved and intensely spoiled. Our Kurdish brothers and sisters, our dear ones, hate them.

472

Let us give longer ranged weapons with greater firepower to our soldiers. That would be a deterrent. It would have a very deterrent appearance as well. The Qur’an refers to the deterrent characteristic of weapons. God tells us to take precautions and prepare strong weapons so that we would have deterrent power against our enemies.

473

When the Turkish state possesses the strength to bring order to the Middle East, there will be nowhere left that Turkey cannot reach, including the U.S. Let me say this openly.

474

It is not possible to enter the Southeast right now, it is not possible to enter many districts there. We cannot send our books or preach religion there; we are unable to perform any activities. That is because there are armed people there. Those weapons they have should all be collected.

475

Our citizens in the Southeast should be patient and calm and never leave their lands. On the contrary, if there are those who left their houses they should go back. They should be brave and put their trust in God. Our state is strong enough to take over all those so-called occupied places within 48 hours. A single command issued to that end would be sufficient. It would only take a few minutes for us to wipe that scum of the earth from our lands.

476

The state should increase the number of Special Operations Police significantly. Special Operations courses should be opened everywhere. The number of Special Operations team members is very few. There should be at least 30,000, 40,000 Special Operations officers.

477

The PKK has weapons and our decent, honest people do not have weapons. Our state should give registered guns to those whom they trust and give credit to their personality, character, morality and personage. If our people have such means, the PKK would not dare to act with such depravity.

478

In the Southeast, village guard systems should be implemented in the cities as well. For instance, a village guard system could be implemented in Cizre. Let us double the number of village guards.

479

It is important to protect our citizens in the Southeast 24 hours a day. Those lands are dangerous places. We can establish small police stations there. We must establish control points. There are many armored vehicles and they can keep watch in them.

480

The real Mahdi (pbuh) has small power. I mean he has a small community, a small group of friends. Almighty God loves creating big things from scratch, He loves making tiny things great. For instance, God creates a big, 25 or 30 meter high fig tree from a small, tiny fig seed within 15 to 20 years and lets us eat hundreds of thousands of figs from that tree.

481

We will never deliver any district in the Southeast. My Kurdish mothers, Kurdish sisters, my Kurdish brothers will be able to live there in comfort. There will never be separation, whatsoever. Even if there is a promise made, we are reneging on that promise.

482

All the countries in the Shanghai group are generally governed with a presidential system and there is a mafia-like governance and dictatorship in every one of them. A presidential system brings about dictatorship and that is highly dangerous.

483

A presidential system is very dangerous. There used to be a presidential system in Egypt and it collapsed. There used to be a presidential system in Syria, it collapsed, and it also collapsed in Iraq. There is a presidential system in the USA and it is in difficulty as well. Presidential systems have brought problems all over the world. The parliamentary system on the other hand has always meant stability: That is a fact.

484

A committee decided the collapse of the Russian economy. Almighty God uses a committee, a committee headed by Hazrat Khidr (pbuh). The Archangel Michael is also responsible for this.

485

A committee decided the collapse of the Russian economy. Almighty God uses a committee, a committee headed by Hazrat Khidr (pbuh). The Archangel Michael is also responsible for this.

486

Thousands of economic specialists gather together and are unable to put an end to this economic collapse. The wisdom of God, the Archangel Michael’s implementation, renders them helpless. The command comes from God.

487

The world is being designed for the system of the Mahdi, the economy is brought down, God creates great wars and turns the world upside down. But God protects Turkey by commanding the Archangel Michael. Almighty God says, “The Mahdi is there, do not touch those lands.”

488

God brought down the American economy. The reason behind this has to do the special groundwork for the appearance of Moshiach, the Mahdi (pbuh). God brought down Russia as well; all of that is for paving the way for the Moshiach.

489

God assigns the Archangel Michael for economic rout. The Archangel Michael is the one who caused the economic rout in America; God commanded the Archangel Michael and caused the economic rout. Michael inspires people and makes them do as revealed. God is the One Who does that, but He makes the Archangel Michael instrumental in this.

490

A Darwinist, materialist education is the greatest danger in Turkey. That is a scourge on the region, on the Middle East and the world as a whole. Darwinism is being taught to our youth as if it is factual and this irreligiousness, this Godless propaganda is being protected and espoused all the time all over the world. That is the greatest danger.

491

The MHP should frequently give statements. They should make clear declarations stating that they are against separation, and that it is not possible to release Abdullah Öcalan so that our President Erdoğan’s hand will be reinforced.

492

We will never let Turkey be divided. The collapse of Turkey means the collapse of the Middle East. The collapse of the Middle East means the collapse of the whole region and that means the dawn of the Last Day.

493

In cities in which the violence and threats of the PKK holds sway, the elections would transpire as the PKK desires. If this threat is removed, people will elect the parties they truly desire. A free and fair election cannot be held in the Southeast of Turkey while the PKK threat is still present.

494

There is an attack against the members of all religions all over the world. That stems from a lack of love and the spirit of persecution. That is why this Darwinist materialist education should be stopped or else this ruthlessness will go on.

495

Disasters will continue to engulf the world so long as Darwinist, materialist education is continued. A language that defies - May God forbid – God is being used and that is done in schools all across the world. These people say “There is no God”; they say “What Darwin said was true. You have all been created as a result of coincidences.” This would offend God. That is the reason why the world is left bereft of riches. Bloodshed, scourges, and great pains have enveloped the world and this still is escalating. They should listen to reason and stop doing that.

496

Within the course of world history, they [bigots] have generally turned this world into a living hell for women. When born a woman, she doesn’t have the opportunity to have fun, to wear what she likes or to dress up. Loving and being loved is forbidden, being joyous is forbidden, everything is forbidden for them. Let them have fun, let them be joyous and wear whatever they like. Leave them alone so that they can live in peace.

497

MIT (Turkish National Intelligence Agency) is one of the most perfect intelligence agencies in the world; we congratulate them. There are no terror organizations, no groups or associations that the MIT does not hold sway over.

498

If Jews disregard the Torah and give no consequence to the command of God, a terrible disaster would come upon Israel. But if they believe that God will help them, that He will help them through the Moshiach and pray, God will save them.

499

According to Jewish accounts, the time of appearance of the Moshiach is 1999-2012. The time has come according to the Jewish calendar as well. All of the portents mentioned in the Torah have been realized. Consequently praying to God for the appearance of the Moshiach, begging God for that is the most important task of Jews right now.

500

It would be an atrocious act to try and set Israel against Turkey. The people of Israel are a community that we have been protecting and watching over compassionately all along. Turkish people are not hostile to Jews; they love Jews.

501

Let us bring positivity to the Gulen community. The only condition is to sever their connection with politics. They should remain above politics. They would then be very successful and everyone would love them. They have followed a wrong strategy there; they’ve gotten involved with politics and things got out of control.

502

The Gulen community should reconcile with the government and become friends again. The whole issue lies with their being reasonable, consistent, loving and humble, with their avoidance of arrogance. And with the Gulen community’s avoiding interfering with the politics. This is the most important point. The whole issue would be resolved once they stay away from politics.

503

There are two groups in Turkey; the 1% traitors that want to divide Turkey and the real owners of Turkey that espouse the integrity of Turkey, constituting the remaining 99%. Those that constitute the 1% are people from neighboring countries who can barely remain standing with the support of those countries. Consequently no one would ever give way to such an attempt.

504

There is a regular, brave, wise, high quality army equipped with modern weapons in Turkey. We have a brave, wise police organization and a brave, wise gendarme organization. One who could dare to split up Turkey has not yet been born.

505

The main idea in Turkey is about preventing the splitting up of the country. I mean this is what 99% of the people want. One nation, one flag, one people. Our Kurdish brothers are also of the same idea and so are we.

506

Torturing animals is moral turpitude. It is cruelty. Almighty God destroyed a nation because they tortured an animal; there is a verse in the Qur’an to that effect. The ruling against torturing an animal is very heavy. See that God ruins a whole nation. Those who do that are subjected to the wrath of God.

507

The PKK is filthy, fickle and treacherous. But the Kurdish people are proud, noble, radiant and exalted people.

508

Kurdish people are religious people; they are decent and kind. They fear God; they are noble and exalted. The PKK on the hand is full of swindlers and characterless, deceitful people.

509

The decisions given during February 28th period should all be reviewed. There really had been an operation based on perceptions in those days. At that time, they killed many people in prisons and they should all be held accountable for what they have done.

510

One needs to approach both the Gülen Community and our President Erdoğan with compassion and support them both. The PKK is constantly acting like a bully. It would be an absolute madness for a Muslim to struggle against another Muslim. They should first unite and clear up their mutual enemy, the PKK, and the rest will be easy. The rest will be solved with love, reason and knowledge.

511

When a young girl lives her life with profound faith, love and radiance, when she is brought up with a healthy, sound and reasonable upbringing, she becomes very lively and very beautiful. But that is not what they do. They say, “what happens if I become faithless?” That kills them spiritually. And when they die spiritually, they die physically as well.

512

Girls are like flowers. It is not possible for a young girl to remain healthy without faith. That is because humans are weak. They can only remain spiritually healthy with faith; once they lose their faith they become ill and many of them become inclined to commit suicide. They constantly have suicidal thoughts. They go and smoke cigarettes, drink alcohol and do whatever it takes to ruin themselves.

513

Both for men and for women, being spiritually and physically strong is connected with their purity and faith. What happens when you cut off the water of a flower? It would be scorched and ruined under the sun. That is the same with women and men. When they lose their faith, when they lose their honor, they would be ruined.

514

Banning ladies having fun is like uprooting an essential beauty out of this world. Women are the most important ornaments of the world. If women have fun, if they are happy, if they are cheerful, if they are able to show their beauty, it would be great.

515

May God give goodness to all of us, to all our people. May He give us peace, brotherhood, tranquility, ease, contentment and exhilaration. May God protect us from dissension, may God not set brothers against brothers. May our Lord settle the disputes among brothers and give Muslims the spirit of friendship, brotherhood and love. May God protect them from self-centeredness, arrogance, haughtiness and from greed for rank and position.

516

Time is passing by. It constantly brings us towards the end of our lives. Death is coming towards us and we are going towards our death. There is a meeting point and we are going towards that point.

517

I see a different kind of moral superiority in my Kurdish brothers. They have a unique beauty. This moral virtue that prevails in Anatolia manifests very beautifully on them.

518

There is no Absolute Being other than God.

519

If you approach people egotistically, love would not be formed anyway; egoism, selfishness are the enemies of love. If one stops being an egoist and selfish God would open the way for him. If you behave egotistically and selfishly God would deem you unsuccessful.

520

Passport and visa requirements should be abolished, both for Armenia and for Azerbaijan on the same day.

521

Those who love God, those who love people are gathering rapidly and they are the real force in the world. Love and peace will prevail in the world once they come together and unite.

522

There is an atrocity and a lack of love in the world. People do not love each other in a truly astonishing manner. Those who love people, those who love God will clear away this scourge.

523

It is religiously unlawful for two Muslim groups, two groups on the right path, to struggle against each other. It is a religious obligation for all Muslims to try and reconcile them, it is an obligation upon all Muslims. I mean that is not something left to their discretion but a religious obligation upon all of them. They should strive to reconcile them by all means.

524

General Amnesty is murder beyond murder. If a person has shot a soldier or a police officer, if he martyred our police and if the number of those martyred is above ten thousand, if he mutilated tens of thousands and if you provide the means to deem that lawful, it would mean that you are a million times more treacherous and more perfidious than the PKK.

525

Abdullah Öcalan says, “I used to believe in God but I have been given a Darwinist education and then I denied the existence of God and became an atheist.” The Middle East is ruined because of Darwinist, materialist education, the Ottomans collapsed because of that. And this mistake still goes on.

526

Youngsters are given a Darwinist, materialist education in schools. They are thus losing their faith. This desperate situation should be made right. For instance, the PKK militants are also given a Darwinist, materialistic education in schools and they go astray afterwards.

527

Rumors saying that “the state will pardon the PKK, they will release Abdullah Öcalan and give autonomy to the region,” are actually insults to the government. The government should take precautions against these insults. They should not allow such insults. These are such humiliating insults. This is something that even the antichrist would not accept.

528

If someone steps up and – may God forbid- says, “The PKK should be forgiven.” The meaning of that would clearly be: “What they did was normal, it is normal to shoot soldiers and it is okay to shoot police officers, of course they should be martyred –may God forbid- well done to those who did that!” Such a person would be millions of times more wicked, millions of times more treacherous and more perfidious. The PKK would be “clean” when compared to those. Such a person would then be the wickedest, most treacherous person in the world.

529

The PKK is a mafia like group, but it is the bloodiest mafia like group in the whole world. It is a group that has treacherously martyred our soldiers and police officers, that has martyred ten thousands of our lions in a terroristic environment.

530

Pardoning murder and those who shot our soldiers and police officers, making their pardoning a lawful, legitimate issue would come to mean encouraging murder. It would mean completely disregarding our martyred soldiers and police officers. That would mean the gravest insult for the families of martyrs. Those who do that would be the most despicable ones.

531

It is a grave immorality to pardon those murderers who kill soldiers and police officers. Those who do that would be atrociously immoral.

532

Being the ones who disclosed the secrets of the PKK, we have stopped the PKK’s activities in making a reputation. We’ve made everyone know that the PKK is filthy, treacherous, fickle.

533

May Almighty God reconcile the Gulen community and the government. May God give success to both parties on the path of goodness. May Almighty God not give way to the satan. May God bestow us the success of defeating the satan. May Almighty God not give way to the satan.

534

May God reconcile the Gulen community and the government, and may God give relief to their hearts. May God take away all the rage, animosity and hostility in the hearts of all Muslims and give relief, tranquility and exhilaration to the hearts instead. May God take away the troubles afflicting the people. May God bind their hearts to each other with brotherhood, love and affection.

535

The government should be reconciled with the Gulen community. It is not acceptable to just sit back and watch. That would be religiously unlawful. We are the only hope of the whole Islamic world. Pakistan, India, Syria and all others, all poverty-stricken people have expectations from us. Now what would this fight do to us? Where would that take us? We need to continue our efforts to reconcile ambitiously and determinedly. And we should pray fort his.

536

Alevism, Sunnism, Wahhabism, Christianity, Judaism should all be taught in religion courses; all religions and all religious sects should be taught in which case it would be possible for all Sunnis and Alevis to attend these classes and learn such an important culture.

537

Attacking a person whose hands are tied and who is being brought among police officers, smashing his face in is a shameful, atrocious and feckless act. Beating up a man in prison, beating a man in a police station, beating a man in handcuffs is not an act of an honest person. It is the exact opposite.

538

If some people attempt to crush our President Erdoğan, that would cause pain in the hearts of all the Turkish people because it would seem that loyalty has no meaning. Our President should definitely be protected and watched over. It would be much better if his opponents approach him in a manner more befitting good conscience.

539

Being subjected to threats is the sunnah of the Prophets. God is the One Who creates these threats.

540

What are the components of preaching religion? Pain, difficulties and threats… If these increase, the value of the preaching would increase as well, and you would attain the good pleasure of God even more. If your goal is to attain the good pleasure and the mercy of God, you would lovingly endure those. Living such a cowardly, timid life in this transient world is vey humiliating.

541

God would not give relief to those who are not on His path. If one says, “I would preach religion but I have to be very comfortable,” he would not be wanting to preach. Preaching religion is the name of the religious service performed when one is not comfortable.

542

Even under threats a Muslim would wholeheartedly want to do the right thing. He should say, “If only I were threatened so that I could attain much bigger deeds.” Our Prophet (saas) always lived under threats; he lived under the threats of Abu Jahl, Abu Lahab, the threats of the Pharaohs of that time. The Prophet Moses always lived under the threat of the Pharaoh.

543

Threats are blessings in disguise. If Islam is preached in a threatening environment, it would be a religious service. If one says, “Let me only perform my prayers and avoid threats,” his deeds will decrease considerably. But a Muslim would want to collect as many good deeds as he could. Why would one agree to attain one deed when it is possible to attain a million times more?

544

Because of the PKK many people are unable to function in the Southeast. Muslims are all leery of them but if they carry out their activities, even under threat, they would attain a lot of good deeds.

545

It is not difficult to differentiate the Kurdish people from the PKK. The PKK is filthy and the Kurdish people are immaculately radiant.

546

The PKK imagines that they could cause the Southeast to be lost in the confusion. Actually it would take us at most 48 hours to wipe them out, even if the PKK militants fought everywhere street by street. The PKK would be looking for a place to hide. They should pull themselves together.

547

There is no such thing as the “process”, let me say that openly. We would never give way to separation. Look, I am saying this openly in all sincerity; the whole world would collapse, the whole world would be razed. That would be the end of the world. They should forget about this. If they attempt to take Turkey away from us, we would take away the world from them.

548

I would never let a Muslim be killed. I would do anything to prevent murder. ISIS kills, and resorts to violence. We are against violence. But if you go and attempt to kill the one who resorts violence, you would be no different than they are. It is not acceptable.

549

Lack of respect brings about rage and nervous breakdown. One then starts looking for a place to attack with that hatred, to satisfy that hatred. That rage cannot be calmed down with mild acts. Such a person would look for ways to burn things down, kill, crack someone’s head open or to leave him a bloody mess. His nerves will be calmed a little bit only when one sees blood. It is the characteristic of the satan: satan is only satisfied with blood.

550

Our President Mr. Erdoğan is a person who lays the foundation for the Mahdi (pbuh). In my opinion, his presidency will also continue at the time of the Mahdi as well. That is because he is an ideal administrator, an ideal person. Our Prime Minister will also go on with his post at the time of the Mahdi, it appears. I mean this is how I feel. That is because he is a very talented, very decent, very trustworthy person.

551

People will pledge their allegiance to the Mahdi (pbuh) three times. The first time will be in Istanbul, the second time will be in Mecca, and the third time will be in Jerusalem. During the allegiance pledged in Jerusalem, Mahdi (pbuh) will call Jesus Messiah. He will say “Your security will be provided for. Show yourself.” After that Jesus Messiah (pbuh) will come along with a smile, together with a group of his students.

552

Opinions are nice. Freedoms are nice. Criticisms are nice as well, but only if done in kindness. When bad language is used, the laws, the legal system makes it right.

553

Religious communities constitute the backbone, the basic structure and the foundation of the government.

554

People should learn about Christianity, Judaism and Islam as a part of general culture. They should learn about Alevism, Bektashism, Shiism. If they do not know about those, it would be ignorance, it would be a deficiency.

555

God is the One Who creates success. It is a religious obligation to reconcile Muslims. We will strive for that until the end. If not this week, next week; if not next week, the week after will do. I mean it will happen sooner or later. We need to strive to that end. It is not acceptable to lose hope and step aside.

556

The whole Muslim world and all Jews will accept the appearance of the Mahdi (pbuh). The Christian world will accept it as well and there will be an amazing atmosphere of peace and brotherhood. But connection with God is of crucial importance; if people cut their connection with God, this world would cease to be a habitable place.

557

Holy relics of the Prophet Solomon and the Ark of the Covenant of the Prophet Moses will be found. The Holy Ark will be opened in the presence of Muslims, Jews and Christians. Very big incidents will take place. People should be prepared for those things.

558

If they fail to attach importance to religion, if they fail to attach the necessary importance to Moschiach, God would make what He means understood through the use of violence. But if people sincerely understand the commands of God and put their trust in God, in His Mahdi, peace and happiness would prevail.

559

Nice efforts that would emphasize that we are friends with Jews, just like we were very good friends with the Jews at the time of the Ottomans, would yield very good results.

560

Israel’s bond of friendship with Turkey is very important. Turkey is a country of key importance. Let our Jewish brothers come to Turkey and establish an environment of friendship. Friendships that appear to be symbolic have a great impact and ensure great results.

561

God wants Moschiach to appear, He wants the Mahdi (pbuh) to appear. That is depicted as a very important point in the Torah and it is also stated as a very important topic in the hadiths. God is designing the whole world according to the Moschiach, the Mahdi (pbuh) at the moment.

562

Turkey is not a suitable location for joining ISIS. The police and gendarme forces are very meticulous in Turkey. Turkey has a strong intelligence service and a determined policy against terrorism; but Syria is very suitable to go in for ISIS. There are hundreds, thousands of ways to do that. Turkey is the least convenient path.

563

There is no such thing as killing in the Name of God. Murder is a capital offence that would be punished with eternity in Hell according to Islamic law. It is not something a reasonable Muslim could ever do. Only a bloodthirsty, monstrous, psychopathic person could do that.

564

The PKK gains prestige through weapons. The moment they lay down their weapons they would lose all their prestige. The only reason why many people are praising them and talking about the PKK with a careful and respectful manner is their weapons. The moment the PKK lays down their weapons they would immensely be humiliated. Our Kurdish brothers already hate them, they are fed up with them; they would instantly throw them out.

565

The US should change this classical, hundred years old obsolete policy of violence. They should very enthusiastically and determinedly implement a peaceful, loving manner that approaches people with the compassion found in the spirit of the Gospel.

566

We do not want murder committed in our land. It would be a grave ignominy if they attempt to have Turkey as their partner in crime, as their partner in murder.

567

We would not accept getting involved with an operation against the ISIS. We would not let Turkey commit murder. The deep state of the world should leave aside this impertinent demand. We would not let Muslims be killed. They should not attempt to drag us into these incidents.

568

The PKK movement is a movement of the antichrist. God created the antichrist and his opponent; the system of the Mahdi. Right now the system of the antichrist is in a war with the system of the Mahdi. God says; “It is the party of God who are victorious!” The system of the antichrist is bound to be defeated.

569

The PKK is the biggest mafia organization in the Middle East and Abdullah Öcalan is the leader of that organization. There is not any other mafia leader higher than him. Actually, Abdullah Ocalan is a crime boss.

570

The PKK would be devastated if they lay down their weapons, they cannot survive. Anyone that comes by would easily crush them. Many people respect them simply because they have weapons. The minute they lay down their weapons both, ISIS and Syria would walk all over them, everyone would walk all over them; they are well aware of this. That is because they have a rotten ideology and a murderous philosophy.

571

The Darwinist way of thinking denies the existence of God, it denies the existence of the Prophets, it denies revelation. Darwinism is a system that denies all of our sacred values.

572

There is no freedom for cursing. No one should say, “I have the freedom of cursing, I have the freedom to insult others.” Everyone has freedom of speech but there is no such thing as freedom to insult. If one says I want to curse anyway, the law gets hold of him.

573

The Mahdi’s existence is necessary for the unity of Muslims. No one would unite around a Sunni scholar. No one would unite around a Shia or Wahhabi scholar but they would all unite around Imam Mahdi (pbuh). They would have united a century ago if they could unite any other way.

574

It is clearly understood that the year 2015 will be a year in which terror and pains will be experienced without love, without the fear of God, without mercy. These incidents will go on until God draws attention to the system of the Mahdi. This will go on until people see the system of the Mahdi as a means for salvation.

575

We need to target the PKK’s religion. What is their religion? Darwinism. In that case, we should target their religion as well. We need to explain the invalidity of Darwinism to the youth. This is the most crucial topic.

576

Everything they write about my Kurdish brothers that would make them take offense would return and stick to them. Gold is not affected by anything. My Kurdish brothers are like gold. The things those filthy men say against them wouldn’t have the slightest effect on my Kurdish brothers. Their bravery, their superiority is certified.

577

Our people in the Southeast loathe the PKK as they loathe filth. Our Kurdish brothers are very honorable people. They are very proud very fond of their dignity. When someone threatens them, they take it to heart. The state should not let my proud, strong-headed, brave, tough brothers of mine to go through this pain.

578

The state has many television stations, it can publish a newspaper if need be, but it can also use TRT Avaz, TRT6. The state can thus carry out enormous anti-communist propaganda against the PKK.

579

Giving free rein to the PKK in the Southeast in the name of democracy, in the name of freedom would cause loss of territory and it would cause our citizens to be persecuted in those fields. Even though they are not communists, our citizens say that they are communists. Even though they do not have any connection with the PKK, they say that they are the PKK. That is a grave persecution for them.

580

PKK militants have conducted immense fieldwork in the Southeast. There is a mafia type domination; the state is liable for protecting her citizens against this mafia dominance.

581

Just like it is the case for 99 percent of all Muslims in the world, ISIS is also in a state of idolatry and is diseased with that affliction. They are mistaken and they are in the wrong. With Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) being instrumental, together with all other Muslims, ISIS, the Taliban and all others will be saved from this affliction, from this disease.

582

ISIS is a structuring that is destined to be victorious; I mean victory is in their destiny. That is how they are depicted in the hadiths. They will overtake all those lands, they will rule on those lands. And eventually they will pledge allegiance to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). There will be no more bloodshed after that.

583

The CHP should be venturesome, very audacious and should possess a very innovative spirit. They should very thorough internalize Ataturk’s understanding of piety and make it prevail within the party.

584

Radicals are different than Muslims. Those who ascribe partners to God and those Muslims who don’t are different. I am criticizing those who ascribe partners to God. I am criticizing those who became idolaters without being aware of it. I am criticizing the radicals. The ones who abide by the Qur’an are called Muslims.

585

Islam is portrayed as a religion of terror. This is the reason behind this dislike. They call it Islamophobia but actually this is terror-phobia; people are afraid of terror. You are talking about a system of terror and you are presenting it as if it is Islam. You have named terror as Islam. Actually there is compassion, mercy, love, arts, aesthetics, science, beauty and everything beautiful in Islam.

586

The fact that Turkey is a modern country should be emphasized thoroughly. It should be well emphasized that we are a democratic country that protects the rights of women, that advocates the arts, beauty, aesthetics and science. A misleading image has been formed about our country, portraying Turkey as inclined to radicalism: We need to eliminate that image completely.

587

The state should not spare TRT6 to shawn and drum music, instead they should turn it to a channel that broadcasts programs in which we can explain the invalidity of communism, Darwinism and the dreadfulness of Stalinism. That is crucial.

588

It is not possible for us to make anti-communist, anti-materialist propaganda house by house, street by street in the Southeast of Turkey, but it could be easily be done with TRT6.

589

Right now the PKK is conducting field-work. That is because they need a calm environment to explain themselves and make propaganda. The police or the gendarme should not interfere with their work for them to do that. They are conducting political propaganda, communist propaganda in the coffeehouses, in the streets, in the mountains.

590

There is only one PKK, only one leadership and that is the leadership of Abdullah Öcalan and that is it. “They will lay down their weapons,” “They will come down from the mountain” these are all words said to misinform people and buy time. In the meantime the PKK makes progress. For instance they take over cities, they establish courthouses and assign governors.

591

There are murderers who killed tens of thousands of our soldiers and policemen in prisons, and releasing them is out of discussion. That would mean it is OK to kill people. Then Turkey would be razed to the ground, may God forbid.

592

The state should open TRT 6 (the state owned television channel broadcasting in Kurdish) to us. We cannot go over the whole Southeast Anatolia with conferences alone. The state has professors, associate professors. Let us provide the material and they can go and explain. Nothing other than that could work.

593

They want to suffocate Muslims in their own lands by making Middle Eastern people annihilate other Middle Eastern people. Because the PKK is a filthy, treacherous and fickle structuring, they found them to be the most suitable ones.

594

The system of the antichrist is planning to annihilate Islam with the Muslims they have turned into communists.

595

The system of the antichrist is planning to establish an antichrist system in Turkey and ruin the entire Middle East with the people they turned into the followers of the antichrist. In the meantime, they don’t want to use American soldiers; they don’t want to use European soldiers. They want to use the Middle Eastern people they have turned into communists against their own people.

596

There is a system that is attempting to overthrow the government of the Republic and the state; that is the characteristic of the PKK. Their goal is out in the open; they want to destroy the state. They want to found a communist state instead. They want to divide the Southeast and then seize the rest of the country. Abdullah Öcalan’s thinking is a Marxist, Leninist, Stalinist thinking.

597

If all the nations were loved, all the nations would be at ease. But if one says that they will persecute another nation, that opens the door to persecution for all nations and that is not acceptable. If you feel love you love everyone, if you don’t you wont feel love for anyone.

598

The lack of love, the reaction against Israel is about eighty percent. That is a horrible rate. This should be made right immediately. Moderate, beautiful, loving statements coming from our politicians would be very beneficial in this respect. We need to be a nation that loves other countries. Anything other than that would not befit us.

599

The power of loving other countries, other nations, is insufficient. If you do not love the other servants of God, you cannot love Turkey either. Just be sincere. Love Syrians, Arabs, Greeks, Russians, Iranians, Europeans, Americans. They all are the servants of God, all colorful, how nice this is. God created this as a blessing.

600

Secularism doesn’t mean silencing religion. It doesn’t mean using religion either. It means living religion sincerely. If a politician wants to talk about God as he feels, he should be able to do so.

601

There is a preparation for a great massacre in Kandil. They should evacuate Kandil. They should heed my word. They didn’t in the past and they all have been slaughtered. ISIS will raid Kandil. They will not leave anyone alive there. They will slaughter them all. They should evacuate to the mountains. They cannot say that I didn’t warn them. I am saying this in advance.

602

If you love God, the image you love would not disappear for all eternity. Nothing that exists would ever cease to exist. Once something exists it will never cease to exist. That is not possible, it is not possible in a technical sense either.

603

God is the One Who shows beauty, He shows beauty as an image. The whole of it belongs to God, God is the One Who makes one love, He is the One Who shows it. So you should give all your love to God. The man who doesn’t give his love to God but gives it to an individual, then starts complaining.

604

The understanding of Ataturk should settle in the CHP. Ataturk’s understanding of love, friendship, brotherhood and unity, his understanding of Turkish Islamic Union, his understanding of Islamic unity, a union of the Turkish world, his understanding of love towards the Qur’an, his approach about women and the arts should settle in the CHP. Once this is covered, there is no need for the CHP to do anything else; our people would embrace them instantly.

605

Russia and Turkey are longstanding friends and they will remain as friends. Our mutual love is very strong. Our trade is strong because of that, I believe, but trade is of secondary importance for us. Love, friendship, brotherhood, mutual trust; these are the most crucial topics.

606

Lack of love and a mutual spirit of intimidation are the hotbeds of all problems. This mutual spirit of intimidation should be put away. Love and enthusiasm should be put forth. The spirit of friendship should envelop the whole world. This is the whole issue.

607

Love is the most powerful weapon in the world. It is sincerity and spirit of friendship. That brings about positive energy. This is what Europe, the world and all of humanity is looking for.

608

Those who read the Treatise of Light from cover to cover and perfectly understand it attain a distinguished reasoning. They become totally different personalities with their reasoning, with their judgments and submission to God. But that happens when they really know the Treatise of Light, when they internalize and perceive what is written inside.

609

When one is wronged, when he is backstabbed, he attains good deeds from that as well. The backstabbed one attains good deeds. God strengthens those who are backstabbed. God strengthens those who are wronged. He would not let them fall in weakness.

610

Presidential systems end up in great civil commotions, big wars. Nothing happens in parliamentary systems on the other hand. Presidential systems have all collapsed in the Middle East. It has been a pain in the US as well. The presidential system is not an auspicious path; it is a dire method. Let us not get involved with it at all.

611

The Treatise of Light consists of magnificent books. The Treatise of Light should certainly be read everyday. It should be kept handy. The undistorted, true passages of the Torah and the Gospel should also be benefited from.

612

Racism is moral turpitude. Black people are really very beautiful people; they are intelligent, talented, good mannered and humble people.

613

The AK Party should advocate that women should be at least as strong as men in every sphere of life and at least as high in number as men. For instance, at least half of the National Assembly should consist of women. At least half of government officers should also be women and women should be positively discriminated towards.

614

Women are superior in love, in mercy, in compassion, in quality, in beauty. Women are clever and very intelligent creatures. Men tend to think more superficially, their way of thinking is more plain: Women, on the other hand, are able to think very creatively and they are much stronger than men in their talents and tendency towards the arts, beauty and aesthetics.

615

If you teach hatred for Israel to your people, the whole Islamic world would also learn hatred for each other. If you do not love the children of the Prophet Abraham (pbuh), how will you love Muslims? You should love the children of the Prophet Moses (pbuh); you should love the Armenians, Greeks, Catholics, Protestants, so that you could also love Muslims. They all are the servants of Almighty God.

616

If there is no quality in a country, it means there is nothing left for that country, may God forbid. Without quality, there would be no life, no art. Since life is intertwined with the arts, we give the name “quality” to the beauty that appears in there.

617

There is no one who supports the PKK in the Southeast of Turkey. They give no significance to the PKK. They are actually revolted by them, but they respect their guns. They only feel that respect towards their guns; they only fear their guns and bow in front of those guns, that is the whole issue.

618

Muslims are the real friends of the Kurdish people. We all love our Kurdish brothers and sisters very much.

619

If you know yourself, it means you know God.

620

What does attempting to divide Turkey mean? It means challenging the system of the Mahdi. Those challenging the system of the Mahdi would be devastated.

621

If a member of the parliament does wrong, we would not re-elect him. We would not say, “What is done is done!” but we would have an election and cast our votes. We would not let them go on with that post. Sovereignty belongs to our nation.

622

Fear of God is required for love; love of God is required. Love is not for the bone and flesh; the manifestations of God are loved. What would you love in someone if you simply think that person as someone who will die and be diminished? The Infinite One would be loved and that Infinite One is God and one can only feel love for another as a manifestation of God.

623

If they attempt to destroy Turkey, they would actually be attempting to destroy the whole world. We would not let that happen. That means a general uprising in Turkey, may God forbid. Everything would be leveled. That would be the greatest insult to our people.

624

Pardoning the PKK, putting the PKK out in the streets means making it free to kill our soldiers and our police officers. They keep saying, “We will establish an independent state in the Southeast, we will have Abdullah Öcalan as our leader in that state.” There would be no homeland, no nation, no flag, nothing left behind. There would be no honor, no pride and no dignity left behind after that.

625

The alliance of Muslims and Christians, the alliance of Muslims and Jews against the antichrist is urgent. Muslims should be one within the other with the Christians.

626

Muslims should ally with religious Christians or else the antichrist will crush both Muslims and Christians and Jews. Muslims, Jews, Christians and all, they plan not to leave any devout people.

627

There is no love in the way radicals talk; there is no mercy, no compassion, no friendship. There is no notion of unity and integrity. These are all against the Mahdi; they are all anti-Jesus Messiah. They all defer to communism and Darwinism. They defer to the PKK as well; in fact they are really very cowardly.

628

There will be a very wide place for those who will attempt to divide Turkey; that is Hell. They would have no place other than that. No one should look for trouble. They should be aware of this.

629

One goes through a very staggering trial. People should not expect such an easy trial and they should not be surprised to see that it is not easy. Otherwise, it would not be a trial anyway. The man wants to live a life with the mindset of a retired person and then die that way; that is not going to happen. Muslims go through a staggering trial if they have genuine faith.

630

According to the Torah, Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will realize that he is the Mahdi from the ordeals he suffered through and from the patience he showed in the face of these ordeals.

631

We will all go to Hereafter. There will be no one who wouldn’t. Almighty God puts us through an important trial, an important test. Without this education we cannot be normal people.

632

Reasonable, rational, democratic, loving generations who love all people, generations who love people from all religions should be raised. They are teaching hatred towards Jews, towards Christians, towards Shia, towards Sunnis; that is not acceptable.

633

The mistake of ISIS is that they do not fully abide by the Qur’an. They act on false hadiths. When they abide by those false hadiths, such incidents like chopping people up, beheading them and acts of violence occur. There is a grave mistake in this.

634

By means of us, Turkey has become a champion in believing in God. No one believes in Darwinism in Turkey, 90 percent of the people do not believe in Darwinism. The percentage of those who believe in Darwinism is very high in Peru, in South America; it is 70,80,90%. The percentage of those who believe in Darwinism is only five percent in Turkey. That happened by means of our humble activities.

635

They are trying to present the PKK as if they are very strong. Actually, the PKK has no structure to be intellectually strong. They are denying the Existence of God, they are denying the Book God sent. These are Darwinist materialist types. They have no significance.

636

May God destroy all those who shot our soldiers, our police officers. May God destroy those who forgive the ones who martyred our soldiers and police officers. May God destroy those who are making preparations for that. May God make them deeply occupied with their own troubles.

637

Alevis are very dear to us. Alevis think freely and sincerely. They are not jealous, they are not malicious, they are full of love. They are people of affection; people of heart. They are very dear to us.

638

There were thousands of idols in the Meccan times. One should recognize the sufficiency of the Qur’an. If one claims that something has a place in religion not because God said so, but because a person said so, that would be a superstitious belief.

639

Why do we love the Mahdi (pbuh)? We love the Mahdi(pbuh) for the good pleasure of God. We love him as the manifestation of God. Why do we love Jesus Messiah (pbuh)? We love him as the manifestation of God. Of course, it is not the bone and flesh that we love.

640

One of the most important things to emphasize in the Southeast of our country is to protect and watch over our Ranger brothers. They should be given the status of police officers. They should be given permission to carry guns in the city. Their numbers should be increased.

641

Lovelessness is terrifying. Love, on the other hand, is a very pleasant, joyous feeling. One would become ill without love, may God forbid, even die. It is not possible to live without love.

642

There is darkness in the disputes of the ummah, not goodness. Muslims have to be united. All the verses of the Qur’an are about unity and solidarity.

643

God is the One Who makes one a caliph. Caliphate is a profession of love, of affection: First and foremost he should love God and make the servant of God love Him as well. Caliphate is not possible without love.

644

The main characteristic of ISIS is that they educate, persuade, give knowledge and employ techniques of persuasion and indoctrination. This is how ISIS is formed. One doesn’t say “I am joining ISIS” out of the blue. If you approach them with education, knowledge, love and affection the matter would all be solved. It doesn’t take more than one week for ISIS to persuade a person, you can unwind that person within a month.

645

Treatise of Light is a very refreshing very beautiful work. Those who read the Treatise of Light from cover to cover really becomes very mature. They gain a very beautiful perspective towards the World, the incident and think highly of people.

646

An attitude that attempts to drive a wedge between Shias and Sunnis should be strictly avoided. We should organize friendship dinner, friendship meetings. We should work off this dissension. But it is again the Mahdi who will do this.

647

Weapons are reason why Abdullah Ocalan is shown “respect”. Once their weapons are lost no one would ever give consequence to Abduallah Ocalan. The weapons of the PKK are the reason behind the success of BDP in the Southeast of Turkey.

648

The PKK will never lay down weapons. If they ever lay down weapons, they would evaporate; they would be diminished. The PKK is a force that survives with weapons. Without weapons no one would ever take them seriously or give consequence to them.

649

The system of the Mahdi is not a project; it is a fact. It is not possible to take the system of the Mahdi out of destiny; it is something that is bound to happen.

650

God creates an environment of terror and bloodshed, and creates incidents to make the system of the Mahdi be accepted. That is because if people do not accept something reasonable, God makes them accept it by force with His Name “Al-Jabbar”, “Al-Qahhar”. Violence and terror are the signs for the appearance for the system of the Mahdi. Mahdi (pbuh) is the one who will stop this terror and bloodshed.

651

Gog and Magog will wreak havoc in the world in the End Times. Hazrat Mahid (pbuh), just like the Prophet Dhul’Qarnayn, will create a barrier and restore prosperity, security and peace in the world.

652

The youngsters from ISIS are all in a state idolatry; they are on the wrong path. They are cruel, brutal and merciless but nevertheless they still are Muslims; they are ignorant, uninformed Muslims. We will educate them.

653

All the youngsters from ISIS will soon pledge allegiance to the Mahdi (pbuh). Their coming has been foretold in the hadiths. Their activities are described in great detail. Their appearance, their attire, everything about them has been foretold. They cannot stop ISIS. As per their leaders, one of them will go and the other will follow.

654

All snobs will be devastated; they will all be ashamed. They assume that the world can be governed with snobbery. God is the One Who governs the World. God will make humble, inoffensive, beautiful people rule the World. All snobs will lose face. The end of all snobs is a two-meter grave.

655

God created the world for love. Love is the goal of Heaven and it is the goal of this world. God wants to be loved; God loves His servants and says, “My servants should love Me.” Some people are constantly focusing on hatred; they are listening to satan. They should listen to God instead.

656

Emotionality is like a different religion, a different faith: That is because such a person struggles with his demons, keeps away from God, loses his trust in God. He would cry and become sad, he cannot set himself free from these scourges. Otherwise he would set his heart on God. For instance, something seemingly bad happens and he says “There is surely goodness in this.” Would someone like that deceiving himself? No, he would be speaking the truth. There really is goodness in everything.

657

When emotionality and romanticism hits the steel shield of faith, they instantly fall down. The clarity, beauty and explicitness of rationalism would thus appear crystal clear.

658

Without faith, one would lose all his enthusiasm and determination to live. One who acts with the love of God would be enthusiastic. Such a person would never go into depression or stress. Otherwise people are open to emotionality, romanticism, sadness and fear.

659

What does releasing Abdullah Öcalan mean? It means the PKK has become a legal organization. It means the murders of the PKK are legal, may God forbid. They should give up that irrational idea. Such a move is unacceptable; we would never let that happen anyway. They should forget about it. They have that intention, but we would not let it happen. He is not going to be released.

660

Releasing Abdullah Öcalan means turning the Middle East into a bloodbath. I mean, may God forbid, neither Turks, nor Kurds, or Circassians, or Laz or Europeans or Asians would be left behind, may God forbid. All the world would turn into Hell. They should not attempt to do that.

661

In the communist way of thinking, ideas are paralyzed. People would not be able to think any other way; even if they think otherwise, they cannot express their ideas. Creativity would die out in such a way of thinking and no progress could be attained neither in physics, nor in chemistry, or in the arts or any other branch of science.

662

Modern thought is a modern understanding of Islam. There is love, mercy, peace, well-being, beauty, decency, kindness, respect, reverence, quality, the most advanced technology, the most advance arts in Islam. There is respect for every idea, respect to everyone in Islam. That is great. In communism, anyone outside that opinion is killed, they are terrorized, hanged and chopped up.

663

The Prophet Mohammed (saas) is the leader of the Kurdish people, not Abdullah Öcalan, who denies the existence of God and claim that he is a god. Abdullah Öcalan is a person who claims to be a deity. Our Kurdish brothers would not worship idols, they worship God.

664

The intellectual background of the PKK is Darwinist and materialist. The invalidity of materialism, the invalidity of communism and the fallacy of Darwinism should be prepared as supplementary textbooks. We can prepare them, the state can publish them and distribute them to students free of charge. That is the way to solve this trouble.

665

Ataturk started the preface of the spirit of the system of the Mahdi. God has given him that task. Without Ataturk, Mahdi (pbuh) wouldn’t have appeared. He laid the groundwork for it, facilitated it and erased bigotry. Mahdi (pbuh) appeared on that groundwork.

666

The PKK is filthy and Kurds are radiant and immaculate people. Kurdish people are decent, noble and honorable; they are high quality and kind. The PKK on the other hand is debased; they are ignoble, characterless, treacherous and filthy.

667

May God damn those who attempt to forgive the ones who martyred our soldiers and police officers! May God damn those who attempt to forgive those who martyred our soldiers and police officers! May God damn the ones who martyred our soldiers and police officers!

668

The years 79, 89, 99, 2009 and 2019 are important. 2019 is the year of relief. Of course, it is also the year of troubles and excitement but that is the end. It is the surrendering date of the system of the Mahdi. The lifespan of the system of the Mahdi is 40 years.

669

Blood is bound to be shed in Syria, in Iraq; ISIS is bound to appear. Those carrying black banners are bound to appear. One might say, “Why did this go wrong?” As a matter of fact, the secret servants assigned by God are organizing all these things. All these things are bound to happen. Eventually, we will all see that all these will be sorted out by the Mahdi and that Mahdi will be the one we least expected.

670

God directs history. He has servants in this world that are charged with leading history; there are secret servants. Those secret servants are led by God through revelation for the orientation of history.

671

When trouble comes upon a person, he should not think that this would work against him. There certainly is goodness in everything: God gives such troubles to turn people towards Him.

672

The CHP (Peoples’ Republican Party) should be powerful; they need to be in unity and solidarity. Respecting and trusting their leader is of crucial importance. The notion of a dispensable leader is not acceptable.

673

Satan helps the radicals. They both hurt themselves and those around them. They both make themselves ugly, and those around them. They get dirty themselves and cause those around them to be dirty as well. In this way, the satan becomes the servant of the satan. That is very dangerous.

674

Actually the regime in Iran is a communist regime; they likely support the PKK. That is because Iran has very close ties with all communist countries. They appear to have an Islamic regime, but in truth they have a communist regime as a foundation. But to appear reasonable to the public they present themselves as Muslims. That is the say, the state is actually communist but the people are religious.

675

Iran should be compassionate. They should become a European society. We should be able to go to Iran fearlessly. All women are living there in fear. Why do you impose an obligation about headscarves? Let those who want to cover their heads cover them, and let those who do not want to cover them don’t.

676

The PKK is recruiting 99% of our youth by intimidation. There is a pileup system of intimidation: They are all afraid. They are all afraid of each other. The PKK is an empire of fear.

677

The PKK is the world’s most despicable, most characterless, most treacherous mafia group. Abdullah Öcalan is the leading man of this organization. He has instigated murders, caused tens of thousands of our soldiers and police officers to be martyred.

678

What happened to their claim about the US defeating the Taliban? They were saying that they would easily defeat them with bombs. They were putting their trust in their technology. Do not put your trust on technology, put your trust in your love. Trust your compassion, your rationality, your faith, your knowledge. These people are all inoffensive wronged people, and you can very easily win them over.

679

If they attempt to break up Turkey, we would have their world collapse around them, the Last Day would come. We will not permit that, they should forget about it. May God damn those who participate in this project. May God damn those who participate in this plan. May God damn those who instigate this, may God rain down all sorts of scourges upon them. May God make troubles rain down upon them. We will not let this happen.

680

The roadmap Europe and the US wants is actually the roadmap Abdullah Ocalan demands- meaning the roadmap the PKK demands - and that is to separate a large piece of land in the southeast from Turkey and to give that land to the “PKK Communist- Stalinist” state and to assign Abdullah Ocalan as the president of that so-called state. This is the whole issue. This is what is meant by the “process”.

681

May God awaken our attention. May God grant us the blessing of concentrating on Him and directing our love solely to Him. May God strengthen our mind and make us perceive the proofs of God with our mind; may He strengthen our faith in a conscientious and sincere manner. Weakness in faith is very dangerous, may God forbid.

682

Beauty belongs to God. How prone people are to forget God. God says, “...people are cruel and ignorant.” All beauty belongs to Him yet one still goes and gives their love, that beauty, to that man or that woman.

683

Ultimately man is a weak creature. He dies and is buried in a grave. When he loses a loved one, he loses himself, saying, “I am dying, I am burning inside out, I am all done!” What would you say to that beloved one in the grave? You would flee in fear when you see that body in the grave. Well then, Who is the One to be loved? God is. Who is the One Who shows you that image? God.

684

If you become fixated on the love of a person, it would be idolatry. You should love with the love of God. Even the songs are about separation. Why don’t you love as the manifestation of God? If you love as the manifestation of God, you would not feel the need for such songs. You would not feel all that pain.

685

Turkey should have a news agency that provides truthful information to the world. The goal of this news agency should only be correcting the misinformation that's out there. It should be an agency in serving as a radio, television and a newspaper. Correct Information Agency. It should correct the misinformation, both around the world and in Turkey.

686

We need to ally with everyone in order to bring peace; with Freemasons, with Templars, with Neocons, with the Council on Foreign Relations team, with anyone you could ever think of. That is because the way to reason is one way.

687

Kurdish people are blessed people, they are very honorable and devout, they are decent kind people. When they talk about a Kurdish person, I feel sure that I will definitely come across a decent person. This is not in a stereotypical sense; they genuinely are decent, pious people. They are superior because of their piety. That is the reason why I love them.

688

ISIS will learn our love, our understanding of friendship and they will learn to preach the message of God without bloodshed, without even causing one person’s nose to bleed. We will be instrumental in this. Weapons will be demolished, a time will come and ISIS will accept this. And we will, insha’Allah, be instrumental in this under the leadership of the Mahdi (pbuh).

689

We should have a Laz governor in Diyarbakır, a Circassian governor in Mardin, a Kurdish governor in Istanbul and in Ankara. Turkey would only be nice under these conditions. Otherwise Turkey would be disintegrated. Beware of that; it would drag us into lovelessness.

690

ISIS would not leave the region for two or three years anyway. As a matter of fact, they wouldn’t leave the region until the appearance of the Mahdi (pbuh).

691

It is not acceptable to support ISIS; that is because they are trapped in idolatry. But many Muslims are also in idolatry. I cannot support their faith either. The Qur’an is enough according to my belief. They do not accept the fact that the Qur’an is enough. Consequently it is not possible for me to support such a belief.

692

Laying down their weapons means the end for the PKK. Had the PKK entered a democratic path, they would be wiped out. There is no PKK that gives a democratic struggle, it will be an immediate end for it. That is why they would never lay down their weapons.

693

The Kurdish nation, the Kurdish people, our Kurdish brothers are very devout people. Abdullah Ocalan on the other hand does not advocate a religious belief system. He advocates a Stalinist belief system. This is the worst humiliation possible for our Kurdish brothers and sisters. Telling a Kurdish brother of ours to “be a Stalinist” is like cursing that person.

694

The ISIS lot is sincere in their faith but they have a conventional Orthodox belief. I mean there is idolatry in their system. Chopping people, hanging them up, all written in those books and they practice what is written in those books. In order to correct this mistake all the world should decide and unite in the system of the Mahdi. Or else they would be striving in vain.

695

Martyrdom is something to rejoice in. It is an honor, a blessing; it is not something to mourn about. Only idolaters mourn about death. Only unbelievers cry for such things. In the Qur’an God says, “Let them laugh less and cry a lot.” And what do you say? You say, “Do not laugh!” God says that for idolaters. Muslims do laugh, and they only cry out of love for God.

696

The US should submit to God and stop Darwinist-materialist education. They should assume an attitude against irreligiousness. America was very wealthy when they were religious; they became poorer once they quit their devotion to religion.

697

If we had the means of the radio and television channels of Turkey and America under our command, we would very easily explain the invalidity of communism, terror and anarchy to the people of the whole region. All the coasts would then be cleared. Everyone would embrace one another and the issue would then be closed.

698

Intellectuals, people of thought should be sent everywhere. Turkey and the US have amazing means to do that; they have radio, televisions, newspapers; we would conduct an amazing campaign of preaching the word if they gave those to our command. All coasts would be cleared in less than a month.

699

There is an unpublished letter of Bediuzzaman Said Nursi. In that letter he writes, “Religious Christians overtake politics.” They overtake world politics. And he says, “Mahdi (pbuh) overtakes the mission of preaching the word.”

700

Why do I love my Kurdish brothers? I love them because of their piety, because of their good morality. I would never love anyone because of their race. I would love them because of their piety. We are all the children of the Prophet Adam (pbuh); we are the sons of Adam.

701

All Muslims are Islamic nationalists. I am not a race-based nationalist; Kurdish, Laz, Circassians are all the same for me. Superiority is in piety.

702

The PKK sowed persecution and it is reaping persecution now. They sowed trouble and now they are reaping troubles. They are the ones who taught ISIS this violence, this cruelty. God inflicts troubles upon the PKK now.

703

The US should learn to handle issues with love and compassion not with violence, airstrikes and bombs. Had the US followed the spirit of the Qur’an, the whole region would have felt great love to the US. You should approach people who believe in the Qur’an, with the Qur’an.

704

PYD-PJAK-PKK, they all are one; they all are the PKK. They have the same leader, they have the same party, they have the same management, they have the same technique, they are all the same, there is no difference between them. Their order and command structure is the same. They are all the illegal PKK organization’s people.

705

Idolatry brings ruin to people. It drags them into committing murders, killing people and even killing themselves, burning and destroying their surroundings. But once those people are saved from idolatry they become a radiant, luminous people. And that will be made possible by Imam Mahdi (pbuh), insha'Allah.

706

The best thing to be done against ISIS is to explain the truth with love, science and wisdom. That is because these people believe in God yet they are trapped in idolatry; this idolatry drags them into committing murder. They have been misinformed. If you correct that mistake, the whole issue would then be solved.

707

Abdullah Öcalan's being released from prison is not even a possibility for discussion. He should most definitely be kept in prison. His release would require –may God forbid- the release of all PKK militants. That would then give legality to the PKK and that in turn would make it legal for a state to be founded in the Southeast of Turkey.

708

They are trying to make it seem as if there is a multi-headed PKK, but that is a delusion, a fallacy. The PKK has always been led from one center. All they care for is to have Abdullah Öcalan released as soon as possible and to make him the president of the communist Kurdistan that they will found in the Southeast.

709

We proved that Ocalan and the PKK is Godless and Bookless with documents and all the region has become aware of this fact. They used to present themselves as folk heroes but then our Southeastern lions, our Kurdish brothers, hated those scum. And now they are all alone. They are cursed and humiliated everywhere. ISIS wiped them out. That is a God-sent scourge upon them.

710

We are against all movements that might attempt to overwhelm ISIS with blood; we would only wage a struggle intellectually with opinion. We would never open our airbases to killer planes. We would never open our airbases to planes that come to commit murder. They should forget about that.

711

I do not accept changing an opinion by using force. I believe that the struggle against the PKK should always be intellectual. For instance, we are talking here; that is an intellectual struggle.

712

We do not believe that anything can ever be solved with weapons, through bloodshed and weapons. We are against bloodshed, weapons, pain and suffering. We believe that humanity will weather the storms with love, with peace, brotherhood, with faith and with the Qur'an.

713

There is no weariness in the language of love. There has to be determination in peace, in love. For instance, one talks about love for two years and then gets tired of doing so in the third year and gives up. He talks about peace for five years and then cannot keep on doing so in the sixth year: That is not acceptable. One has to advocate peace and love until the end of his life. That is a religious obligation.

714

There is defeat when there is no love. There is immorality when there is no love, there is death. Lovelessness brings about death, pain, suffering; it brings about exiguousness, inauspiciousness and nothing else.

715

If you act like the Prophet Joseph (pbuh), God sends Zuleyha to you. Or else it is not possible to find anything by searching in deserts.

716

The Prophet Solomon (pbuh) did not go after blessings, he ran away from them and they followed him. The Prophet Joseph (pbuh) ran away from blessings and blessings followed him. I have always run away from blessings all my life. God always sent blessings to my side. Alhamdulillah.

717

There is no such thing as a "moderate Muslim." Muslims are those who abide by the Qur'an. Those who abide by the Qur'an are Muslims, if they don't, they don't. There are two different types of Muslims; those who abide by the Qur'an and those who don't. There is no such thing as a moderate Muslim.

718

We are against weapons, we are against bloodshed. We are against bullets. We do not want the smell of blood, the smell of gunpowder. We want everywhere to smell like roses.

719

They would not be able to cope with ISIS until the appearance of the Mahdi (pbuh). ISIS would never strike Turkey. There is no such knowledge in the hadiths. 1,400 years ago our Prophet (saas) foretold in great details that such an organization will appear in the End Times.

720

God takes away love from the hearts of those who ascribe partners to Him. Their loved ones run away from them and they chase after them; however had they have given their love and their appreciation for beauty directly to God, had they prayed to God, God would grant them those blessings.

721

If you feel love, first of all, love God and love those God loves and let that love be reflected in your life. It is not acceptable to say "I do love" without doing anything. You should carry the signs of a fervent faith. Then there would be no need for you to look for Zuleyha. God would send Zuleyha by your side.

722

We will not get in a war with ISIS. The Turkish soldiers should beware of getting into something like this. Air strikes, etc. We would never get involved with those. This is something that brings about a grave spiritual responsible. That would directly be religiously unlawful.

723

God brings about abundance and plenitude to the country in which the person of End Times resides. Apart from that abundance that country is protected from scourges and grave disasters. Right now Turkey is enjoying material and spiritual abundance and plentitude of the system of the End Times. People should be aware of this fact.

724

Godless, Bookless, irreligious, faithless; the PKK lot is now a history. Just like the people of Nimrod, just like the people of Pharaoh buried in history, they too are history now.

725

The 40 years' life span of the PKK is over. Consequently the lot of the PKK is being removed. Our Kurdish brothers will be glorious and exalted, they will be appreciated, they will live a happy and peaceful life.

726

The 40 years' life span of the PKK is completed. Our Prophet (saas) says in his hadiths; "The life of the antichrist is 40 years," he says. Because that lifespan has come to an end, God has given the command for the ruin of that lot. I mean it is Hazrat Khidr (pbuh) who executes that command. That is to say, when a command is given for the ruin of a group, we should know that Hazrat Khidr (pbuh) is the one who undertakes that command.

727

If you teach people persecution, they'd come up and apply persecution. You should teach people compassion, reason, methods of talking and persecution and scientific proofs. Above all else teach people love of God, fear of God.

728

There is nothing left to call Kobani, as they know it. The region is under the control of ISIS. Those who sow persecution reap persecution. Those who sow wind, reap the whirlwind.

729

Inoffensive people would never be defeated. The friends of God would definitely be victorious. The enemies of God would always be defeated.

730

All our devout, reasonable Kurdish brothers should remain in their homes and avoid getting into any kind of commotion.

731

The PKK is after dragging Turkey into a war. They want Turkey in this war no matter how so that their task will be easier. Turkey will not get into a war. We have no business with war. We have no business with Kobani either.

732

We are now watching the death thrones of the system of the antichrist. The end of the PKK has come, it is finished. This is the reason for their floundering.

733

The system of the antichrist is created as perished. This is the destiny of the system of the antichrist. It has not been created as sustainable. Its death and birth have been created together.

734

The life of the antichrist would last a maximum of 40 years, it cannot be any longer. But Islam remained standing for 1,400 years. Many antichrist movements have passed by ever since the time of our Prophet (saas), they have all remained in history. They have been many different antichrist movements and all have been perished. The PKK is also a movement of the system of the antichrist and it will be perished.

735

Europe and the US used to trust the PKK a great deal. They were sure that the PKK would divide Turkey. But now they have no hope to divide Turkey; that is because God ruined the PKK.

736

The PKK militants were ruined in Kobani. Eventually God brought their ruin from where they didn't expect. They failed to consider the Power of God. In the Qur'an, God says, "We will lead them, step by step, into destruction from where they do not know." (Surat Al-A'raf; 182)

737

In the Turkish-Ottoman tradition, when the state is undermined, it becomes unpredictably ravening. The state might remain silent in the face of many things but when it comes to undermining the state, it becomes ravening. No one should dare even to imagine dividing, undermining the Turkish state.

738

After the 2080's the fiercest Pharoahs and anti-christs will start enveloping the world. Such evil that would even startle the Pharoah, the antichrist, Nimrod. Every single one of them will be Nimrods on their own, they will all be anti-christs. The world will turn into Hell and it would become uninhabitable.

739

The 2070's are the last years of the world dominion. 2071 is an end, not a victory. 2023 is the peak point of victory. I mean it is the peak point of transition to perfection. The 2070's are the ending point.

740

Our soldiers are very blessed. With all the steps they take, they bring plentitude where ever they go. They are the most honest, most merciful and most compassionate army in the world. They make tiny distinctions and refined analysis before taking a step.

741

There are two opposite forces; one is the followers of the anti-christ, the other is the followers of the Mahdi (pbuh). The latter acts on love, compassion, mercy, reason, science, righteousness, honesty and sincerity. The followers of the anti-christ use painful paths such as violence, bloodshed, oppression, humiliation and lovelessness.

742

The name of the system that steps forward with ideas, with thoughts and with love is the system of the Mahdi. The name of the system that uses terror and violence is the system of the anti-christ.

743

MIT (Turkey's National Intelligence Service ) is the strongest service in the region. There might be some forces against the MIT, they do writhe desperately, but if you pay attention you'll see that the Turkish state always ends up having the upper hand.

744

The world is being designed according to the system of the Mahdi right now. When looked at carefully, it will be seen that the whole Middle East is being designed specifically for the system of the Mahdi. This is what lies at the root of all these wars, all these incidents.

745

We have no business with ISIS. ISIS will be respectful towards the Turkish Army. They will not, and cannot act impertinently.

746

We do not want any of the countries in the Middle East to be divided. The PKK will not be able to found an independent state in those lands; we won't allow it. They should forget about that.

747

ISIS will always be respectful towards the Turkish army, towards the Turkish nation and eventually they will enter into the service of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). From that point on, no blood would be shed and neither would a sleeper be awakened. Not a single drop of blood would be shed, not even a single person's nose would bleed. You will see in the coming years that all I've been saying will come true. .

748

When religion is set free, abundance comes to that country. This is the sole reason behind the plentitude in US; the fact that religion is free there. When religion is set free in Turkey, Turkey will be radiant and plentitude will come upon Turkey as well.

749

There is no violence in the Qur'an; the only condition war in which is considered acceptable in the Qur'an is defense. When a persecutor attacks, we defend ourselves. There is no persecution, no pressure in the Qur'an. You simply defend yourself when attacked by persecutors. The verse is explicit. God says; "There is no compulsion in religion." (Surat Al-Baqarah; 256) God also tells us to say; "O you disbelievers! You have your religion, I have my religion." ( Surat Al-Kafirun; 6) How do you come up with compulsion with these verses?

750

Netanyahu should say, "O Lord, send us the Moschiach" in Hebrew. He should say that under his prayer shawl and say these. Israel would only then be saved. There is no other salvation.

751

If you become a man of trouble, troubles rain down on you. If you become a man of bloodshed, that bloodshed falls upon you. Blood brings about blood, violence begets violence, death brings about death. Killing people treacherously is a characteristic of a PKK militant. Those who kill openly are now killing the ones who treacherously kill others.

752

God inflicts a persecutor upon another persecutor. The Qur'an mentions God's driving some people back by means of others. And there is a saying in Turkish to that effect; "send a thief to catch a thief."

753

Those looking for atrocities are worthy of atrocities. If you encourage persecution, if you encourage scourges and bloodshed, those scourges suffocate you. That bloodshed drowns you. If you had approached them with love, they would have come to you with love. You've asked for blood and are faced with blood.

754

As they strike ISIS, ISIS would become the sole power in the region. A demolished building would be a perfect position to hold for ISIS. When you wreak havoc in the region, there would be nothing left behind to call the state of Iraq or Syria.

755

We would help an injured person even if he is a PKK militant or an ISIS militant. It would be a grave immorality to leave an injured person on the ground, it would be persecution. Only the PKK would do something like that; they either leave their injured ones behind or shoot them in the head. A Muslim would never do something like that.

756

ISIS does not pose a threat for Turkey. The PKK is the greatest danger for Turkey and the region.

757

The PKK is a thousand times more dangerous than ISIS. It is a grave danger directly targeting the Turkish nation. We need to warn and inform world governments against the PKK.

758

The PKK could very easily be brought to their knees with an international coalition. With a strong military blockade, the PKK would totally be paralyzed.

759

The international force prepared for ISIS should primarily be directed towards the PKK. All their lines of supply should be cut, there should be a blockade; an economic blockade could be widened in all aspects if necessary.

760

Before ISIS, the state should first intellectually neutralize the PKK. If we need to send soldiers or if there needs to be an international intervention, the PKK is far worse than ISIS, they are far fiercer. First wipe out the PKK; solving the ISIS problem is easy.

761

Islam is the true path and thus remains standing but all the systems of persecution have vanished. "Falsehood is always bound to vanish." That is the promise of God.

762

Some people do not believe in the fact that this is the end of the PKK. Persecution would never be everlasting. This is a fact set out by the verses of the Qur'an. I mean no persecuting system has ever been sustained long-term in history. They should have understood it from that. This is the law of God; every tyrant, every persecuting system is bound to be destroyed. Only the rightful systems remain standing.

763

A religious CHP will be successful. A religious CHP will be the ornament of Turkey. They should be sure that they would come to power with at least 70 percent of the votes. You are talking about Marx; you should also be talking about Bediuzzaman and Suleyman Hilmi Tunahan. Only then you would be successful. Anything other than that would not work.

764

ISIS is a group that would eventually pledge allegiance to Turkey and the Mahdi. Bringing them to submission would take at maximum half an hour. They would be very lenient, docile like lambs. Now they are monstrous but later on they will turn into lambs. God is the One Who makes them act like monsters and God will be the One Who will turn them into lambs.

765

If one attempts to annihilate Turkey, he would himself be annihilated. It is very dangerous to mess with Turkey; that would bring one only his own ruin.

766

Without the Turkish nation, without Turkey, the whole world would be destroyed. They have to know this. If we go, we would be gone along with the world; we would drag the whole world with us. That is the only way.

767

God razed the PKK to the ground. The life of a persecutor is short. The discussion is over. This region would never become Godless or Bookless; the PKK failed to see this fact. How could the Middle East become faithless and irreligious?

768

ISIS would not assume an attitude against Turkey. It appears that they will most probably become a state. They would have a command in the whole region but it is not possible for them to constitute a threat to Turkey and Turkish people. They would then be destroyed. All of them would then be burned. They can never do that.

769

Bringing ISIS into line is something that requires maximum half an hour's talk. It is possible to persuade them all in at maximum half an hour. That is because once you persuade their leader the rest will be persuaded. That is easy. The tough one is solved; the tough one was the PKK.

770

PYD, PKK, etc. These are all over. The PKK disappeared into thin air. They've shown their cowardice. They have shown their helplessness, their cowardice. That matter is fundamentally over. It is seen that ISIS has a command over the region and that they will continue to have that.

771

The PKK is over! There is no more PKK! That is the end of discussion. It is very easy to bring ISIS into line. The PKK is Godless, Bookless, faithless. Persuading them is next to impossible, they are treacherous and fickle.

772

People are prone to love. If you show the least bit of love they would instantly run towards that side. If you approach them with brotherhood, if you call them to peace and friendship they would instantly accept that call. They feel down when both sides refuse to accept because of pride. However if one side were to say it loud they would all accept it. But you would have to be a little bit insistent.

773

Let bygones be bygones for all our people. The scourge of the PKK is over! They should not attempt to bully Turkey in vain. They are pathetic. They are unable to get out of their caves in the rocks.

774

In the time of the Companions, the results were all taken with love and compassion. The love of our Prophet (saas) became famous and hundred thousands of people became Muslims in groups. They came to embrace faith not because violence was perpetrated, but because of love.

775

Those ones filled with love, those who are compassionate are the ones who will rule this world. The Turks are the true owners of the world in terms of morality, in terms of love, in terms of compassion and friendship. God is preparing the Turkish nation for this task.

776

Being Kurdish means being faithful. Being Kurdish means being in love with God. Being Kurdish means being a decent, honorable person who is fond of his family, fond of his children. So PKK, our Kurdish people would hate you! They would only feel hatred towards you!

777

Religion classes in the syllabus would not cause youngsters to become religious; they simply give them general knowledge. But if facts leading to faith were to be taught in religion classes, if the miracles of the Qur'an were to be taught, then we can say that a faithful, devout youth is being aimed at.

778

Being a communist is not an offense but being a terrorist, anarchist, ferocious organization is an offense. Otherwise if it were to remain on the intellectual level, be a communist, defend any other ideology you like we would not be concerned by any of them. You can be an atheist, you can be a communist, but if you attempt to employ violence and terror, we would be standing against you. We would not let you do that.

779

We've been explaining night and day that PKK is a Godless, Bookless structure. Ideas are the most powerful weapons in the world and that has wiped out the PKK.

780

What should be done against ISIS is to engage in an intellectual struggle. If you attempt to respond them with communism, if you attempt to stand against the ideology of ISIS with a Godless, Bookless, irreligious, faithless ideology, they would rout you; but if you respond to them with Islam, with the Qur'an and if you criticize the system of idolatry while doing so, you would then be successful anyway.

781

Jihad: "Jahd" means striving. These people, however, understand jihad as chopping people up. Instead of chopping up that person, would it not be better if you try to persuade that person, if you persuade that person with your ideas? When you chop that person up you would be annihilating that person, he would not have the opportunity to be a Muslim! Yet if you preach religion, if you tell them about God, they would come to believe.

782

Violence begets terror, violence begets horror and by doing so you would be playing into the hands of irreligious people, into the hands of persecutors. Irreligiousness spreads in places where there is violence. Religion spreads in peaceful environments, in loving, compassionate environments.

783

You will see that ISIS will soon pledge complete allegiance to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). Look, I am saying this out loud; ISIS will soon pledge complete allegiance to Mahdi (pbuh). This is a fact that our Prophet (saas) foretold.

784

Muslims are advocating the strongest idea in the world right now and they are in their most determined period. Fascism, communism, capitalism, all such ideologies have collapsed. Only the way of Islam is open right now.

785

The danger of fanaticism is a danger that concerns the whole world but the struggle against radicalism cannot be done with bullying. There is another option; a struggle with opinions that would yield results very easily.

786

We call the dominion of an understanding of intense compassion, mercy and love originating from religion, from love, compassion and mercy that protects both Christians and Jews and irreligious people, the system of the Mahdi.

787

It is not possible to become a universal state in any way other than the way of the Mahdi. That is because in the system of the Mahdi, there is love, peace, brotherhood and all these concepts are enticing. Egoism, ambition, racism, religious discrimination have no place in it. There is quality, decency, kindness, beauty and cleanliness; there are all sorts of pleasantries. Anyone in the world who is called to something like that would accept it.

788

Being a universal state can only be possible with a devotion to spirituality. That is to say, if you would step up as a movement of the system of the Mahdi and have sound evidence that is really shaking and persuasive, you would have Almighty God's help and then you would be able to do that.

789

The main characteristic of Asia is that a lack of quality rules in Asia. Human life has no value in Asia. I am not saying this about everywhere in Asia, but in general they regard people as machines. Turkey's European, loving, modern way of faithful thinking, full of love for God, will put away this dreadfulness. We will be a role model for the whole world.

790

Asia might have some beautiful aspects but it also has many dark aspects. The powers that prevail in Asia are generally like the mafia. We belong to Europe, to European civilization. We should not be drowned in radicalism, in fanaticism, in the darkness of Asia.

791

If you idolize the one you love, if you ascribe them as a partner to God - may God forbid-, if you assume that the one you love has an independent existence, God would take that person away from you. But if you see your loved one as a manifestation of God, God would not take away that manifestation from you. Separation is a punishment for idolizing the loved one.

792

If you approach the one you love with faith and with the Qur'an; if you base your love on the love of God; if you approach that one with the affection God gave; if you see him/her as a manifestation of God, Almighty God would not take that manifestation away from you.

793

If selfishness, a lack of love or being invested only in self-interest engulf a society, the notion of brotherhood would seem odd for them. They would say; "What brotherhood are you talking about? I am rich and I want to be away from you all. I do not like poverty and the poor!"

794

No one should be using the language of conflict. The human soul is inclined both towards anger and towards love; the human soul is inclined both towards laughing and towards crying. Laughing should preferred every single time. Love should be preferred instead of hatred every single time.

795

Islam is an amazingly beautiful system. If the youth could learn about it properly, there would be not one person left in Turkey that wouldn't embrace Islam. Yet they fail to understand; they imagine that hanging people, chopping up them is acceptable in religion, that their freedoms will be seized, that they will not have fun, that there will be no place for music and art in their lives. Actually these are all lawful blessings. Religion is being wrongfully explained. There is no such system. The system of the idolaters brought all those in. There is no such system in Islam.

796

A political party that embraces Bediuzzaman and Süleyman Hilmi Tunahan would be embracing our people. One that would assume an attitude against them would, in a way, be struggling against our people and our people would then assume an attitude against that political party.

797

99 percent of Turkey is on the reasonable path Ataturk shown. This is how it had been ever since the Ottomans; Turks have never embraced radicalism.

798

Our hunger and thirst is for religion. Religion means peace, it means beauty. We live for friendship, brotherhood, goodness and love.

799

Other than the system of the Mahdi, there is no intellectual system that could defeat an ideology like that of ISIS. They should show us if there is.

800

Turkey should take all sorts of military, politic, scientific and intellectual precautions and conduct all such studies thinking that "The PKK would certainly attack, they would certainly revolt!"

801

They have the intention of dividing the world into two poles: Muslims and anti-Muslims. And they are thinking of a horrible war. That is what they call Armageddon. The system of the Mahdi will resolve that scourge.

802

God would humiliate and degrade all those who attempt to play tricks –may God forbid- on God. If they attempt to present their false Mahdis against the Mahdi God chose, by belittling the Mahdi God chose, God would bring about thousands of scourges upon them. They would be defeated each and every time and they would fall into disgrace.

803

This world is not real, the Hereafter is because this world is a place of trial, it possesses the characteristics of both Heaven and Hell. But Muslims push aside those characteristics of Hell by using their wisdom. And because they thus bring forth the characteristics of Heaven, they appear as exquisite beings.

804

Ladies wearing low-neck dresses are perfect Muslims; so are those wearing headscarves. Bearing hostility against women wearing low-neck dresses is as shameful as bearing hostility against women wearing headscarves. We condemn both of these attitudes.

805

Turkey can do nothing against ISIS and neither can the US. There is no solution other than the system of the Mahdi.

806

Kurdish people mean Turkey. Laz people mean Turkey. Circassian people mean Turkey. Kurdish people are refined members of the Turkish Nation. Kurdish, Turkish, Laz, Circassian; we call all of them Turkish people.

807

Irreligiousness brings about egoism; egoism brings about pain, and pain brings about desperation, so they end up writhing in pain.

808

If there is desperation, they should know that there also is the system of the Mahdi. The system of the Mahdi is the remedy for desperation.

809

Once you unleash a lack of quality, it would be like a very deep pit. It goes on and on deeper towards disgrace. It goes on and on towards ignominy.

810

A meeting lacking quality, a building lacking quality, attire lacking quality would all bother people; it distresses people. Quality on the other hand unburdens one's heart. It is a blessing of the world. Quality is the other name of beauty.

811

A Ministry of Quality should be formed as soon as possible. And the Ministry of Quality should follow a policy that is based on quality in ideas, in people, in gardens, in trades, in every sphere: Quality should become the national policy of the state.

812

A life lacking quality is horrible; it is the other name of Hell.

813

A person lacking quality is a grave scourge. First of all, they should underline high-quality thinking, high-quality opinions. High quality books are required for that. High quality works, high quality writings are required. If you attempt to educate people with loveless, hateful writings lacking quality, the outcome would be wild and crude people lacking quality.

814

When a person lacking quality enters a high quality building, the quality in that location would disappear. But when a high quality person enters a low quality location, it would make that place high quality. He would make it a high quality place with only slight changes.

815

Quality people cannot be brought up with ideas of no quality. Islam in the Qur'an is the high quality idea. That is not the understanding of Islam advocated by idolaters, it is not the orthodox traditional understanding of Islam. You cannot find quality there. An intense inferiority would come out of that.

816

We need to start with high quality people, not with high quality furniture. Without high quality people, high quality furniture and high quality places mean nothing. First of all, we need to educate high quality people and for that to happen we need to develop high quality ideas.

817

Love should be espoused with determination and perseverance. Advocating fighting and conflict appears to be easy and reasonable to some people and they assume that espousing love is difficult, meaningless and impossible. Actually, they thus leave behind the easiest and the most beautiful way of life and dive into the most evil, most difficult and the cruelest of all choices.

818

We would not separate our Kurdish brothers and sisters in Turkey. The rooms inside a family home would not be seperated from each other with walls made of steel. We are a family; we would never separate from our brothers and sisters. If you attempt to separate us with walls made of steel we would tear down those walls. You should not long for those days in vain as we never let something like that happen.

819

Wise, well-intentioned, loving people have always been the leaders of this world, their words have always been influential. God always gives them this blessing.

820

The spirit of the system of the Mahdi is the only way to a solution for the Islamic world.

821

Love provides beauty in every aspect. For instance, if a song is sung with love, if it is played with love, it gives an insatiable pleasure. I mean when you do something with love, it yields perfect results. If one talks with love, it can be listened to with an amazing joy. If one looks at another with love, it gives an amazing joy. Even when you show love to a flower, that flower becomes so beautiful and so sweet.

822

Those who criticize the CHP should make constructive and sincere criticisms instead of employing such a harsh, sharp- tongued attitude. They are in a competition of knowingness and impertinence. That would harm the spirit of the CHP and it would be wrong.

823

What the CHP should do is to adopt the warmth, beauty, colors and the wealth of the right wing and to advocate left wing's understanding of quality, aesthetics, freedom, democracy and science to the fullest. They should not leave any point that the left wing is not satisfied with, but they should also adopt all the beauties of the right wing.

824

They could stop ISIS if they wanted to, but because ISIS is an organization that carries out a task within the destiny of the world, world Freemasonry doesn't let it. The world state doesn't allow them to be stopped because it is what preordained in destiny.

825

Hatred brings about hatred, it brings about rage. Love, on the other hand, solves everything. That is to say, the human mind embraces love. Our souls are pursuant to love. We are created accordingly. Heaven is the abode of love.

826

Someone who hangs people and chops people up wouldn't make a Caliph. A Caliph should be a man of love. Whoever is determined to turn this world into a heaven on Earth is the Caliph. A Caliph is the one who brings the important features of Heaven into this world.

827

Monotony is not good. Passion that doesn't hurt people is something nice; monotony depresses people. Trying different, pleasant music pieces or different, pleasant clothes feels good.

828

When loving people gather, it causes a relief in the heart. When one sees his beloved, he would feel contentment and cheer up. His heart would become stronger, he attains a spiritual power and assumes a positive attitude.

829

We need to protect artists very well. It is not that easy to bring up artists. Artists are beautiful people who try to present people beauties; all artists care for is beauty. They also should be treated nicely and protected as their due.

830

Even the smallest effort is very valuable in the Sight of God. Reciting the Name of God even once would bring about abundance, contentment and stave off scourges.

831

It is dangerous to play with the sea. There are 100-150 meters depths. A pool should be one and a half meters deep and no more. The same holds true for the beaches. People should go out into sea for one and a half meters at the most. It should be easy to pull someone out of the sea simply by holding his hand. It should be forbidden to swim any further.

832

The PKK is bound to leave this impertinence. If they insist on going on like this, they should go whereever they like; there are plenty of empty lands down our borders. They can go and find a place for themselves to live. They should keep away from us. We are happy and in peace with our Kurdish sisters and brothers in Turkey.

833

The PKK would never, under no circumstances lay down their weapons. The PKK would disappear the moment they lay their weapons. The political parties that loll against the PKK- if any- would fade away. These people can only remain standing with weapons. Once they lose their weapons, they would be gone.

834

Ataturk really closed the door to bigotry and radicalism. Otherwise ISIS would be going rampant in these lands.

835

We are built to live solely with love. Just like we can never live without oxygen or water, we cannot live without love either. We are wired according to love.

836

Prevailing in the world is in Turkey's destiny: Almighty God has given such a task to Turkey.

837

Radicalism is very dangerous. But religious people are beautific. You can be sure of them in all respects, that is very nice. They fear God, they love God, they do not tell lies, they do not play tricks, they do not act disloyal, they never act against their conscience, they never act cruel. How nice! Anything other than this would be very dangerous.

838

They tried hard to corrupt the Anatolian spirit but nothing happened. It was as if nuclear bombs have been thrown numerous times on Anatolia, but God gave resilience to our people satan cannot succeed in harming them. They could not corrupt our people, Alhamdulillah.

839

The pure morality of the Anatolian people is the most beautiful model for the world. The pure, immaculate morality in Anatolia, their understanding of love, loyalty and brotherhood- that is to say, everything that could be defined as good morality- is the perfect role model for Germany, for Japan, for Europe, for everywhere else. It is a perfect role model for humanity. It is a model that the whole world would admire.

840

The art of the Creator is one of the most pleasant blessings for man. To see a thing of beauty, to reflect upon that, to understand that blessing, is one of those blessings that give utmost joy to a person.

841

One should want to be in love with God. One should ask God to teach him the art of that love.

842

Women meticulously look for wisdom because they are wise themselves, so they are very much impressed by intelligent and wise people.

843

Women are very intricate beings, one needs to treat them very attentively. One should treat them as if they are made of veil; one needs to be very wise to be able to stroll inside that soul. It is almost impossible to approach a woman with an obtuse, weak mind: That is because they are very easily offended, very easily saddened and very easily take offense. I mean there is a need for a very sharp mind and a very sharp attention.

844

Almighty God, the Almighty Creator, conceals Himself. He opens the veil for those who love and closes that veil to those who look at things with heedlessness so that they cannot see. That is the same for the Mahdi (pbuh); God opens the veil on the Mahdi for those who love Him and does not let those who do not love Him see that person.

845

Plants, animals, they all have manifestations of God. For instance, you might think about them as simple plants but the chromosomes inside them have a breathtaking power.

846

When the mind concentrates on the Truth, it feels like "Alice in Wonderland." The curtain will be lifted and we thus enter the joyous world of our Creator that would leave us in awe. That is such a world that there is no end to it; it is endless. And every detail takes our breath away. We gaze through an art of God to another, from one beauty to another.

847

The power of the Creator is breath taking but only for those who look with the light of faith. Those who look at things with heedlessness would only struggle with the pain of daily events. They only trouble their minds with trivial things like whether or not they could eat their meals, whether or not they could sleep, whether or not they could prosper as they like, whether or not they are winning the competition they have with this or that person. They always concentrate on idle things.

848

One needs to think deeply about God's art of creation; both to learn and to enjoy. There is an amazing pleasure in this. That is because feeling that awe and astonishment is very pleasing. One needs to contemplate these matters, feel that astonishment and enjoy that feeling of astonishment and awe.

849

Only scientists can become aware of the Creator. Those who look at a black curtain only see a black curtain. God has shown us the easiness of taking away that black curtain. A little bit of attention, a little bit of will power and conscience and that curtain would instantly be removed.

850

There is a formidable hatred in the subconscious of the people against the PKK but weapons provide respect for the PKK. Some people bow before power. I mean they kiss the hand that they cannot defeat, so to speak. This is where the scourge lies.

851

The PKK gets its strength from threats and violence. When this force is taken away, people would forget about the PKK. The people in the region would get on with their own lives. Normal political discourse would start and the PKK terrorist organization and the political thought allied with the PKK would rapidly fade away.

852

If they lay down their weapons, the PKK's whole political strength would disappear and they would disappear as well. The only thing that keeps the PKK standing is their weapons, their armed force. Consequently, the PKK would by no means lay down their weapons.

853

How beautiful is a loyal, allegiant person. There is no risk of that person's stabbing you in the back, no risk of him playing tricks on you, no risk of his being disloyal, no risk of him not being thankful for what he's given. Such a person would have no worldly ambitions, no worldly expectations; his entire goal would be the Hereafter.

854

If you completely abide by the Qur'an and love God as is due, if you submit your heart completely to God, if you turn into a man of love, if you burn with the love of God, God would bind and brace His manifestation on you; that manifestation would never leave you. God is the One Who takes that manifestation away from you. One might think that the manifestation leaves a person by them taking an individual decision but God is the One Who brings that blessing to you and He is the One Who takes that away from you.

855

The goal of Europe and America is to arm the PKK on the pretext of fighting against ISIS and then using it against Turkey, against our soldiers. If they attempt to annihilate Turkey, let me say that America and Europe would all be turned into a flat field. If you fight with Turkey, God would fight with you. If you attempt to bring about grief on Turkey, God would bring about grief on you.

856

The affection and love between Muslims is very important. They might have different ideas, different ways of expressing matters, different ways of thinking but we are all brothers in faith. There is no difference and no distinction between them.

857

Because a religion that ascribes partners to God –may God forbid- has infested the whole world, Islam that is purely based on the Qur'an is lived by in only a few places. What is dominating [the world today] is the religion that ascribes partners to God.

858

At the time of the Mahdi (pbuh) religious sects will be abolished. Everyone acts according to the Qur'an. The whole of humanity would then be entering the plain, beautiful, immaculate, upright religion, that is Islam, and they would all be living by it with peace, security and abundance.

859

A person who fears God would become very wise and would be very meticulous about what is religiously lawful and what is not and all his attitudes would be very proper and balanced. When one doesn't fear God, may God forbid, that instantly reflects on his behaviors. He starts to say whatever comes to his mind and acts however he likes. When one fears God however, he would act very selectively, very meticulously and very beautifully. A Muslim would keep away from being egotistical and selfish.

860

When one remains aloof from the Qur'an, the wisdom goes away, that person's attitudes become unwholesome, they no longer pay attention to what is religiously lawful and what is not and they become unstable. But if one abides by the Qur'an, his mind settles, his works go well, an abundance comes upon him, a radiance, a pleasantness, a blessing settles upon him. That is why holding on to the Qur'an tightly is very important.

861

Patience is a characteristic of Muslims; leaving behind the perks of this world requires patience, hearing a sharp and unbecoming remark requires patience, every topic requires patience.

862

Spirituality is the greatest problem of Turkey, it is spiritual development. The important step to take to ensure this is annihilating Darwinism and materialism through science and knowledge and explaining the miracles of the Qur'an and the facts leading to faith; this is the whole issue. Other than that, Turkey is already a developing country. What Turkey needs is a revolution of the mind, a revolution of the soul.

863

As we crushed Darwinism worldwide with science and knowledge, Muslims gained a stronger hand all over. Muslims are now able to walk around proudly. The left wing, on the other hand, hang their heads down.

864

God is the "Light" upon the whole universe. Light is the most beautiful thing to see, the most refreshing beauty, the most relishing relief the human mind could ever perceive.

865

A person cannot have quality if he doesn't like his own culture. If he only likes foreign cultures, that would mean unmannerliness. That is the manner of a wanna-be. If you are unable to realize the beauty, depth and richness of your own culture, if you are unable to feel that quality and are unable to present it with quality, that means you are a wanna -be.

866

There is no sense of aesthetics and quality in a radical; he wouldn't understand those concepts anyway. A beautiful painting wouldn't have any impact on him, a beautiful statue, a beautiful melody wouldn't have any impact on him. This is not valid for all of them of course, but for a great many of them.

867

Radicalism is at one with lovelessness. There is no compassion, no love, no mercy in radicalism. There is jealousy, there is envy, there is rage, self-centeredness and conceit, there is a feeling of haughtiness in radicalism.

868

The CHP (Republican People Party) should start a strong initiative against radicalism. Radicalism can only be annihilated through piety. It is not possible to remove radicalism with irreligiousness, with materialism and leftism. Religion would always be victorious and sweep over radicalism.

869

The mindset that demands one to kill in order to live is very egotistical and cruel. There is no meaning to such a life; it is better not to live under such circumstances. If you are to live crudely and egotistically like that, you'd better not. Life is only meaningful if you are living as a human being, if you live as a Muslim. Conducting a crude life is not acceptable.

870

An intellectual, progressive CHP (Republican People's Party) that defends the modern understanding of Islam. A CHP that defends the Islamic Union. That is a convenience, a beauty that could be attained. This is the beautiful formula that would save the CHP. Islamic Union, a modern Islam. If these two prevail in the CHP, the CHP will become the leading party in a heartbeat.

871

Turkey will grow, it will become Turan! There will be a Great Islamic Union. This is what they mean by "The Red Apple"; the best of apples has been distributed to Turkey right now.

872

Our people don't want to be glowered at. They want to be respected, loved and shown compassion; they would side with those who show them love and compassion. People would be scared of those who smart -mouth them, they would be uneasy around such people. They would be on pins and needles around those who look down on them.

873

The CHP should place the modern understanding of Islam at the forefront; that is because the Islamic Union was the ideal of the late Ataturk. To attain a good result they should talk about the Islamic Union, they should bring forth Ataturk's modern understanding of Islam.

874

Money is not an essential condition for quality; intelligence and taste is.

875

The person with the highest quality in the world is called a Muslim. The classiest, the best thinking person with the most beautiful morality is called a Muslim.

876

Quality is the most crucial characteristic of life. Quality is the most crucial aspect of beauty. Without quality there is no beauty. For instance, Heaven is quality in its entirety. Every corner of Heaven is high quality. When quality ends, beauty ends as well.

877

Almighty God tells Muslims to show their impeccable strength. He tells them to appear strong and powerful, and not to appear in weakness and frailty. When unbelievers see weakness, they become fierce; that is also what Bediuzzaman says.

878

Hypocrites always assume that power is outside the circle of Muslims. Yet if they could even see a part of their strength, they would start admiring them. That is why our Prophet (saas) always showed strength to them and then the hypocrites came to heel. That is the characteristic of Muslims.

879

Hypocrites assume that remaining aloof from Muslims is a wise move. And because they always are determined to keep away from them, they live in that spirit, constantly standing up to Muslims, constantly rebuffing and acting obstinately towards Muslims. They never bend towards Muslims.

880

Hypocrites pine for gaining power and honor in disbelief. But when they go join them, their profanity burns them out and devastates them. They dive into that profanity as they burn and they burn even further as they dive deeper into profanity. That constitutes a system that constantly competes with itself and it swallows them and devastates them until they end up in the middle of hell.

881

Muslims should look for power and honor in Truth. Actually Muslims are the ones one should look with honor. They should show respect and reverence towards them, not towards those in disbelief.

882

Some people can act very audaciously towards Muslims. Actually Muslims are the ones who should be respected and loved. One can only feel a measure of compassion towards profane people with the aim of saving them.

883

There is a rage in the hearts of some people towards people of faith. For instance, they behave perfectly respectful towards a profane person and speak in a very appraising fashion with them. But when they come across a Muslim they feel a strange, evil rage; that is an evil instinct one should seek refuge in God. But of course that is something in favor of a Muslim. It enables Muslims to attain good deeds every minute, every hour without doing anything.

884

What CHP (Republican People's Party) should do is to be very religious. They would come to power if they become religious. That is it. There is nothing complicated about that. They need to be modern religious people. If they do that, everyone would be proud of them. How could it be possible to do politics in 2014 with a leftist approach remnant from 1800's.

885

The good ones, the loving ones, those who look for love should unite and look for each other all over the world. We need to expedite this. Those who want terror, fear and anacrhy find each other and support one another everywhere. But most of those advocating love are unaware of this. People advocating love should be very well connected with each other and we need to make a serious effort for that.

886

The good ones, the beautiful ones, the right ones, the loving ones have a heartfelt love for each other from afar, but they could not yet find the way to unite. Moshiach, the Mahdi of the End Times, will show them the way to unite.

887

Leaders should develop a strong aspiration for switching to a manner of love. They need to come together and agree on a loving attitude; after that, they need to decide to talk decisively about love. We cannot hear the word “love” from the mouths of many political figures.

888

It is not right to look at a bigot with hatred. Bigots are actually people who've developed a sickness over time. We see that this sickness progresses in time as people reinforce one another with this sickness. That is why we need to approach them reasonably with a kind, compassionate manner.

889

Bigotry and radicalism is the greatest scourge in the history of humanity. It is even worse than fascism. Even in communism, you could be able to talk to their supporters, but you can never talk to a bigot. Bigotry is such a fearsome ferocity.

890

Time is an amazing cover. Almighty God concealed the system of the Mahdi with time like a veil; He made the events extend over a period of time and thus made it unnoticed because of their slow progression.

891

His Highness Bediuzzaman Said Nursi and Ataturk have laid the ground for modern Islam together. No matter how Bediuzzaman appeared to be against Ataturk, in principle, they were intellectual allies in their modern understanding of Islam. Ataturk liked Bediuzzaman a lot.

892

The system of the Mahdi progresses in front of the eyes of the whole world and it cannot be stopped. This is the course of destiny.

893

Almighty God gave the feeling of being appreciated and liked even to the birds, the flowers, the bees, the bugs and all beings; they all love this feeling. God wants to be loved as well. God wants His creations to be appreciated and liked. Liking, loving and appreciating each other are God's wishes for Muslims.

894

Love is the greatest weapon in the world. Violence brings about violence but in love, the loved one would love you even more, and that makes you love even more. So you become friends, you become brothers and turn this world into a heaven on earth.

895

Let love supersede rage and hatred. Let peace supersede conflict. Almighty God wants love from us. The world wants to run towards trouble so quickly. God will remove this scourge upon us and make love prevail in the world insha'Allah.

896

There is music in Heaven, there is dancing. What exists in Heaven would also exist in this world. If God finds something beautiful in Heaven, He would find it beautiful in this world as well.

897

Bigotry, fanaticism is such a scourge on humanity. Fanaticism and misinterpretation of the Qur'an is what lies at the root of the troubles the whole Islamic world is now suffering from. They make havoc. These all stem from the conservative Orthodox understanding of Islam. There is such a scourge upon the world and Mahdi (pbuh) is the one who will save us all from this scourge.

898

People should abide by the plan Almighty God has made. When they don't, Almighty God does not take bloodshed, pain and sufferings away from people and He increases them even further.

899

People of love, those are the ones who prevail in the world, but they are scattered around. And their power is weakened because they are scattered.

900

People of love are everywhere in the world. They have a significant power but they could not be able to get together as yet. God draws those times closer to us.

901

Some people take a liking to those who incite the conflicts. They love those who encourage bloodshed and they regard them as precious; and that happens with the encouragement of the satan.

902

Love is a joy, it is a blessing, it is a pleasure, it is happiness. Still there are some people who give up love. Hatred is very distressing, it is painful. One would feel unbearable pains in hatred. What is the sense in this? Handle everything with love. Why is it necessary for you to be in conflict, why is it necessary for you to get in a fight?

903

Believing in God is what makes people happy the most, it is what beautifies them the most, it is what brings about plentitude and abundance, it is what brings about joy. It is the greatest beauty of Heaven for all eternity. Having faith in God is the greatest blessing of all, and so is love as a beauty having faith in God bestows upon us. This is the source of life; it is the cause of life.

904

If many countries in the world have a little knowledge about compassion, that is because of Turkey; consequently, they take the system of the Mahdi as a role model.

905

I do love my Kurdish brothers very dearly. They are all very precious people. They are devout and very modern. They keep their word, they are loyal and brave. They are very hospitable people. Our people residing in the Southeast of Turkey are very spectacular. They are very precious for us.

906

We would not let our homeland be fragmented. We would not allow it at the cost of our lives. We, all 80 million of us, would venture being martyrs.

907

Everything should be solved with love. God makes all those who side with love successful.

908

Love beautifies everything. Love is the reason of beauty.

909

Love is the reason of existence of the world. Love is what God loves the most. It is the purpose of existence. God creates the whole universe for love; because He loves love. And love is also what He wants to have among people. He wants Himself to be loved.

910

There is so little time left for the Last Day. By the leave of God, it seems that it is necessary for both Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and Jesus Messiah (pbuh) to know about the Broken Letters. That is because there is no one else who could make use of them right now, they are the last ones that could make use of them.

911

Vacating a region when there is an attack is the wisest move. It means to retreat. It means immigrating. If there is a danger at the door, and if there is no immediate solution, one should immigrate. Immigration does not mean that one would not return to his home later on. Our Prophet (saas) immigrated as well, but he returned victoriously. The Companions immigrated and they too returned victoriously. Immigrating is a solution.

912

Mahdi (pbuh) is being concealed by God behind veils. May Almighty God give permission to Mahdi (pbuh), may He give him the authority. Right now Almighty God does not give him the permission to appear. Once God tells him to appear, no one could ever stop him.

913

The system of the Mahdi is not kept on the agenda. The descent of Jesus Messiah is not kept on the agenda. They are developing plans against the plan of God. If you attempt to develop plans against God's, God would tear yours to shreds. There can be no plans other than God's.

914

Mahdi (pbuh) is a fervent implementer of love. He is a man who fervently distributes love that the whole world needs to the whole world.

915

You will never ever see the origin of matter until the end of times. Only God knows the origin of the matter.

916

How could a loving person be stingy? He would of course be very generous and distribute all he has in the path of God. When a person loves, he becomes crazy for the love of God. He would only have eyes for the love of God and he would say, "What else would I do with all these materials things?" He searches and becomes madly in love with the love of God.

917

Love puts away terror, anarchy, egoism and stinginess.

918

Mahdi (pbuh) is a man of love. He is not a stern, despotic, domineering person. He is a man living in his home. He is a man who functions as a supporting wall for the Islamic world constantly pointing out the importance of love. Mahdi (pbuh) will also not interfere with the government, he will not interfere in politics.

919

It is not possible to know God as He knows Himself: That is because no man is -may God forbid- God. That is why we will never be able to know Him as He knows Himself. But in Heaven, God manifests Himself and we will see His manifestation.

920

Religion can be practiced soundly by the beaches, in discos, practically everywhere. You can build a masjid inside a night club so that youngsters go there to perform their prayers and then come back and have fun. Ladies can swim in the sea at the beaches and then go perform their prayers as they like.

921

Faith in the level of "perception of truth" cannot be experienced by everyone; in fact it is very rarely seen. If it were, everyone would have been like a Mahdi, just like Jesus Messiah. But that doesn't happen. People become Muslims, they simply submit. However, God accepts it as genuine faith.

922

Nothing good comes out of mourning. Mourning is a very passive act; you simply cry and get sad or become low-spirited. Mourning is not the solution. Reconciling Israel and Palestine is a solution. Establishing connections with both parties is a solution. If you get angry with one party and avoid establishing connections with them you cannot maintain peace and security.

923

People are suffering for no reason. If they accept the notion of Islamic Union, if they accept the system of the Mahdi, the world would turn into a veritable heaven. God gives them instead fearsome anguish for resisting.

924

All that God wills would be realized. The consequences of resisting God's Will would be catastrophic.

925

Our rationale shows us that Muslims need an imam, a leader heading them; Without the head, the body fails. And that head is Imam Muhammad Mahdi (pbuh). This ummah would not accept anyone other than the Mahdi (pbuh).

926

It is a religious obligation to ask for peace. Wanting conciliation is a religious obligation.

927

Presidential system is not suitable for Turkey; it would be risky and bring about separation may God forbid.

928

Votes of Kurdish people are legitimate but PKK votes are illicit. That would bring about troubles. That would bring not bring about abundance. The votes of our Kurdish people are immaculate on the other hand. Turkish, Cherkes, Kurdish and Laz people are all beautiful elements of our nation.

929

A country with a strong judicial system is a safe country; such a country is one in which people live comfortably. If the judicial system is on a shaky ground, the whole country will be on a shaky ground. The judicial system is in an awful state in the great majority of the Middle Eastern countries.

930

Women are being oppressed everywhere in the world and people are merely watching this oppression. With the system of the Mahdi this scourge will be removed. Mahdi (pbuh) will annihilate this scourge. The system in which women are held in high esteem, in which women enjoy utmost freedom, is the system of the Mahdi.

931

At least half of the National Assembly should be women. Women should be given utmost freedom. The society is male dominant, that is clearly seen. Women are very superior, very precious, very clever, very decent and pure, beautiful beings. They are the ornaments of this world.

932

Moshiach, Mahdi (pbuh) is the force that will weaken the strength of the satan. God has given that power, that means to him.

933

There is no way for Palestine and Israel to become friends and brothers other than the Moshiach, the Mahdi. The time for the Mahdi (pbuh), for Moshiach has come.

934

Without the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) Turkey would have become communist by now; it was clearly lost. Those lions used their bodies as shields like the Barricade of Dhul'Qarnayn and saved our homeland and our nation, masha'Allah.

935

The greatest ideal of hypocrites is to pull away from Muslim, to revolt as soon as possible. That is because they need to take up a position. That is to say, to strike from a distance. But of course while doing so, they would not strike their first blow in a way that Muslims would understand. They try to do that in a way they wouldn't understand. And they have a tendency to depart by presenting themselves as Muslims.

936

Hatred pours out from the eyes of hypocrites, I mean they have such an evil electricity on them. They want to conceal that hatred, but they cannot succeed.

937

Hypocrites are always after vengeance. They either attempt to take revenge with their words or with their eyes, or they attempt to disturb Muslims with their immorality, or try to make them uneasy or try to get them into trouble, but they do so under the disguise of a pious person.

938

Hypocrites want to show themselves as superior because they have an inferiority complex. They always want to be superior but they can never attain that superiority; they are always belittled. God always humiliates them.

939

God gives time to the hypocrites. For instance they might appear to be very healthy when as God says, "I am pulling them into troubles step by step." Every year, every month that passes by pulls them into troubles.

940

There is an anomaly in the gaze of hypocrites. I mean they try to veil their hatred. That is why the gaze of an hypocrite would become dull. But even if they try to conceal it can easily be understood.

941

Hypocrites talk nonsense. They do not want to talk about God; this is the characteristic of hypocrites. They burn inside when they talk about God. They always try and talk by giving examples. I mean they give examples from other people, they give examples from their environment. They always talk with examples. This is the main characteristic of hypocrites.

942

Hypocrites cannot do anything on their own: For instance God is the One Who makes them found Masjid al-Dirar. God is the One Who creates the hypocrites. They [hypocrites] are created for Muslims to acquire merit.

943

Hypocrites cannot stand to listen to the Qur'an. They would be vexed and feel suffocated. That is because the radiance in the face of a Muslim would suffocate them. They are reminded of God when they see Muslims and that makes them disturbed.

944

Hypocrites go into a trance with satan and receive information from him. Satan advices them, saying, "Do this, do that, do this evil act, do that immorality and create such and such conflict," when they are alone. Because the Name of God is recited when they are with Muslims, their concentration is disrupted.

945

Hypocrites make plans in secluded corners. They establish connection with satan, then they fall into a trance. That is why hypocrites always tend to be alone. They always want to be alone; they always want to be on their own. They do not want that trance with satan to be disturbed.

946

A hypocrite would be determined to go to other hypocrites; they attract him like a magnet. Hypocrites burn inside when they are with Muslims. They feel a strong instinctive urge to go to other hypocrites. When they go with their side they take up a position there and that place becomes their hell. They start following Muslims from that position.

947

Hypocrites have an inferiority complex. They are determined to present themselves as superior towards Muslims.

948

Hypocrite plays mind-games in his own way. He approaches with plain logic and try to present himself as very religious and very superior in every aspect; yet all the while he tries to present Muslims as bad in every aspect.

949

Hypocrites look for a place to hide when they hear the recitation of the Qur'an. In the Qur'an, God says that "they turn their backs in aversion." But they approach when they hear idle talk; this is a characteristic of a hypocrite.

950

God is putting Freemasonry under the command of Islam; He is putting the Templars under the command of Muslims; He is putting the Illuminati under the command of Muslims in the sense of global triumph.

951

What they call "the rightful struggle of Palestine" is Palestine and Israel making peace and living in brotherhood; it is not wiping Israel from the region and wiping it off from the map.

952

We are the servants of God who are in ignorance; God is the One Who is All-Knowing. We have no knowledge except what God has taught us.

953

As the level of welfare increases, the number of those who patiently endure difficulties or those who endure pain decreases. Such an environment does not help the cultivation of art. Those who are brought up in poverty, those who endure pain and difficulties often perform art quite beautifully. God gives pain and ordeals for love to deepen. The more one endures difficulties, the more he knows love, the more he knows profundity.

954

You have no power to bring everyone to the True Path. God is the One to guide people to the Truth. One needs to see if the way he talks, if his culture, if his sincerity enough? One can only be influential if he is really sincere.

955

If you attempt to turn the system of the government into a federal system in a small country, that would be dangerous. It would be a very dangerous and that would be an act set out to destroy Turkey. If you set out to destroy Turkey, Turkey would destroy you. Then the Last Day would break loose.

956

We will cause love to prevail in the world. God created this world for love to prevail. He created it for His servants to exist and to worship Him but what He asks from His servants is love. God says; "Love Me, so that I will love you." Without love, there is no meaning to this world.

957

This world is not a place to cry but a place to laugh; this world is not a living hell but a heaven. We want heaven both in this world and in the Hereafter. Those who want Hell in this world will be left in Hell in the Hereafter as well.

958

We will respond to those who try to turn this world into a living hell by turning the world into Heaven on Earth.

959

Ladies will of course adorn themselves; they will be adorned like flowers. Gentlemen will be adorned as well; they will be handsome. The time of the Mahdi (pbuh) is an age of adornment, an age of beauty.

960

It is nice for women to be admirable. What is forbidden for both men and women is illegitimate intercourse. I mean what is forbidden for them is to engage in illegal sexual intercourse. Or else there is no harm in a woman being liked, or a man being liked.

961

Women are extremely reasonable, fine thinking, artistic -spirited perfect creatures. And women are really wise; they see details very well. In fact, they notice details far more than men do.

962

Love means the love of God. God is the One we love with a profound love. And love is felt for the manifestations of God. All beauties belong to God. All praises are for God as well. God is the One we love.

963

There will be no salvation, no relief for the Islamic Union as long as this misogyny remains; scourges would rain upon them. Half of the servants of God are female. Feeling such hatred towards women would thus summon the wrath of God.

964

May God help all those that strive for the advancement of Turkey. May God open their path, increase their foresight and their insight. May God give them high ranks and may He grant them success.

965

Bediuzzaman says that broken letters are "codes for the pure servants of God." They are codes for some special people. When they want to attain certain information, I mean when they want to learn something, they access all kinds of special information by the help of those special codes. And those pure servants of God are Hazrat Khidr (pbuh) and his students, they are those special people. This is how the world is directed, insha'Allah.

966

Everyone benefits from what is apparent in the Qur'an, but the parts concerning hidden knowledge, the deciphering of the Broken Letters are not known known to anyone. However right now, there are those who know about them, the experts of that Hidden Knowledge.

967

There are secrets of Hazrat Khidr (pbuh) in the Broken Letters of the Qur'an. I mean they are the keys of the Qur'an but only for a specific group of people, for a specific group of experts. With those keys it is possible to reach much information, many secrets in the Qur'an.

968

The compass, the protractor, all these are symbols related with designing the history of the world. But that watching eye, that eye looking from inside the triangle says, "God is watching us right now." It says, "We are subject to destiny." It says, "Whatever God wills will happen."

969

The deep state of the world gathers every century. Every century, they see the course of history by looking at the hadiths, the Qur'an, the Torah and the Gospels and they do not resist the course of history. They do not resist destiny, they shape it accordingly. This is a secret of Freemasonry as well.

970

The Chinese army, the Russian army; they all are under the command of God. The army of ISIS is under the command of God. God is the One Who takes life and God is the One Who gives life. All power belongs to God.

971

Imam Mahdi will be a leader supported by the whole world. Mahdi (pbuh) will not have an opponent. Who will make him accepted? God will make him accepted. God will reveal it to the hearts of people and people will be convinced about their allegiance to the Mahdi (pbuh) in a way that they wouldn't understand themselves. They will strangely understand that they love him. They will strangely start trusting him and believe that he will be the one saving them; they will believe that he will be the one instrumental in their salvation.

972

It is an art to put the Qur’an into practice. A wise, reasonable person would understand the Qur’an very well and very nicely put it into practice in his life. For instance, he’d know how to be humble, how to erase the feeling of haughtiness, how love is experienced.

973

Real Islam is the Islam the system of the Mahdi preaches.

974

Unbelievers are only your friends when they have an interest in being so. They turn into your enemies when their interest in you ends but that is not the case in Islam. In Islam there is patience, there is compassion.

975

One should not emulate unbelief. There is no peace, no loyalty, no real friendship in the system of unbelief. The unbelievers would bring ruin or harm to you the minute they see a conflict of their interest, they would give you up the minute their interests end. You would then be living in a bitter world in which disloyalty runs rampant. The unbelievers could even act treacherous to you right when they wake up. You wouldn’t have a guarantee for two hours of peace. With unbelievers you might face a completely different personality in two hours.

976

Muslims will become vigorous and be refreshed as time passes, they will prosper. The way for the system of the Mahdi will be constantly be open; this is how it is preordained in destiny by God. There will be a lot of obstacles but they will not succeed to stop them. All power belongs to God.

977

Young girls will live their lives fully as young girls and so will the young men. The group of the Mahdi (pbuh) will pull people out of their graves, so to speak. In the hadiths our Prophet (saas) says “He will rejuvenate the world that was ruined before,” for Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).

978

The whole world is kicking up a row for the Mahdi. The incidents will become intensified even further in the following months. A person and a group that they least expected will assume the task of leading the Islamic world. The whole of Europe and the US will support this group.

979

Turkish Islamic Union equals Islamic Unity. We are calling it “Turkish-Islamic Union” in the sense that Turkey will be the leading force. Otherwise every race, every nation enjoys the same level of equality, they have the same precedence; no one has dominance over the other. The noblest among people in God´s Sight is the one who is most deeply conscious of Him.

980

A Muslim should improve themselves to such an extent that others would never say, “This one will do something treacherous.” I mean he should not give anyone reason to say, “He will do something treacherous somehow!” He should give such a reassurance; only then he can be a real Muslim. One should say, “It is impossible for him to do something treacherous!”

981

There is no reliability and soundness in disbelief. You talk to a man and then you see him go and do something atrocious. They act in perversion and do something stupid. They want to approach you only insofar as they see you may serve their interest. When they have no personal gain in being with you, they refrain from coming near you. Actually in Islam, there is the concept of one being a servant of God without asking for any personal gain. Muslims live by that and thus attain constant reliability and decency.

982

There is nothing good in disbelief. There is only perversion, filth, disloyalty, treachery, improper speech and intolerance in disbelief. You talk to a person and in two hours you see that he is acting treacherously. There is a sense of stability in Muslims. They are steady and reliable now and will be steady and reliable in two hours, in ten days, in a year, in twenty years, all for the good pleasure of God.

983

God is the One Who creates radiance; He is the One Who creates beauty. It would be quite funny if one starts praising himself thinking he is handsome. God manifests Himself in that person and shows that to him. They are merely watching that manifestation of God. One should say, “O Lord how wonderfully You have manifested Your beauty!” Instead of saying, “How beautiful I am!” he should say, “How beautifully You create!”

984

The antichrist (dajjal) is the one who cuts people up and chops off heads. Mahdi (pbuh) is the one who stops the bloodletting. Mahdi (pbuh) is the one who stops the bloodshed, the persecution and he is the one who unites the Muslims.

985

Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and his students are the “B’nai Israel” of the End Times. In the Torah, when we look for B’nai Israel the first thing that comes to mind is the Moshiach, that is, the Mahdi and his students. They are the true B’nai Israel.

986

Reason and the Qur’an is one in the other; one needs to have a full grasp of the Qur’an to be reasonable. That is why one should think according to the Qur’an.

987

When an attitude is assumed against the guides of God, it would draw the wrath of God. When one attempts to play a trick on the guides of God, it would draw the wrath of God. Playing a trick on those God loves is one of the most dangerous acts.

988

Our youth should definitely be given courses on “National Consciousness” by the Ministry of National Education. They should be taught about topics like; What is communism? How can we be protected from the communist ideology? How do Darwinism and materialism constitute the origin of communism? How could materialism cause the collapse of humanity? Without this course, terror is bound to happen.

989

There is a made-up hadith they invented saying; “The world is hell for a Muslim.” Why should it be hell? With the light of faith the world would turn into a heaven on Earth.

990

This is the way of the world. Of course, there will be people passing away every single day but mourning would be ascribing partners to God, it is a custom of the idolaters. We will always live the joy of faith.

991

Mahdi (pbuh) will be the one who opens the Holy Ark [of the Covenant], insha'Allah. The time for that is drawing near. The whole world will see the Holy Ark.

992

The main characteristic of the Mahdi (pbuh) is that he is a man of love. The one who enables peace, justice and love is the Mahdi (pbuh). One should keep away from those who talk about fighting. One should keep away from those who preach bloodshed.

993

Unbelievers might sometimes say that - May God forbid- “Muslims are acting in a gullible fashion”. Actually they [Muslims] are the wise ones; they are the ones doing the most reasonable. With faith auspiciousness comes to their lives, they become more beautiful inside and out. Even their organs rejoice in faith; people rejoice in faith inside and out. Their eyes, their gaze becomes meaningful; their expressions become meaningful; their mind, their foresight is opened with faith, their speech becomes beautiful.

994

It might appear that one could mix unbelief with Islam, but the fact is that they do not go together. When unbelief is mixed with anything else it creates a poison; it brings about inauspiciousness. God would quietly make such people collapse physically and spiritually.

995

The power of enjoying things would be taken away from those who forget God in a very short time. They start saying, “I cannot have fun as I used to. I do not enjoy music as much as I used to. Something happened to me.” A miracle happened and you should see that. They start saying, “I am fed up with all these things, and maybe that is why.” In fact one would never be fed up with love, with beauty but a scourge befalls such people. One should always seek refuge in God.

996

A great majority of people might be in a forgetful mindset regarding God; one should not see them as real and be affected by them. God might be showing those people to him in such a state. For instance, one might be going to a disco or a nightclub and people there might not even say one word about God. He should not say, “So this is how people are. This is how this world works. Is there something wrong with me?” He should know that he is on the right path and the others have gone astray.

997

One should improve himself even further, increase his knowledge, memorize the Qur’an. One should try and put every verse of the Qur’an into practice, enforce his patience, strengthen his will-power, strengthen his faith. One should widen and strengthen his submission to God and root the love of this world out of his heart. One should not be affected by the ignorant ones who forget about God.

998

Islam is all about love, compassion and mercy. However the system of the Mahdi would not come into existence without the system of the antichrist (dajjal). Cruelty will come first, then compassion will follow; cold-heartedness will come first, then compassion will follow; first there will be lack of love, then love will come. Almighty God creates all these for people in order for them to appreciate these blessings.

999

Unbelievers are one nation. Some of them appear as the militants of the PKK, some others will appear in another form. The same holds true for ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria); it is a system that doesn’t abide by the Qur’an and it acts in line with the system of the idolaters. Eventually they will abide by the Mahdi (pbuh) and bend their knees before him.

1000

The students of the Mahdi(pbuh) are under the protection of God.

1001

There will be no murder and slaughter in the time of the Mahdi (pbuh). There will be no bloodshed. Radiance will come when Islam comes, love will come.

1002

After the appearance of the Mahdi (pbuh) and the establishment of the Islamic Union, the impact of the good deeds one collects would drop from one million to three. That is because the rest will be very easy. All hardships will thus be removed. The antichrist (dajjal) will then be dead. The attacks of one’s lower-self would be removed as well, so everything will be fine.

1003

The hearts of those who wait for the Mahdi (pbuh) should be at ease. They should not make haste. Their reward is increasing as the time they wait increases. They should think about that as collecting handfuls of gold. One would collect more as Almighty God gives him another 24 hours to collect.

1004

One of the main characteristics of the system of the Mahdi (pbuh) is that it will not conflict with anyone’s interests. It won’t conflict with the interests of communists, neither of irreligious nor with the interests of Christians and Jews. Everyone will be at ease.

1005

According to the references in the hadiths, ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) will enter the service of the system of the Mahdi. They will put aside this current mentality of theirs. There will be no more bloodshed. There will be no further violence.

1006

There is a beauty in the votes of our Kurdish brothers and sisters but there is no good in the votes of the PKK. There is no good in asking for their votes; that would only bring about inauspiciousness. There is good in the votes of our people but there is repulsiveness and inauspiciousness in the votes of the PKK.

1007

We need to give political consciousness to our youth. For instance, one should think why does the PKK educate its militants in the mountains for days, months and years? Otherwise they could collect them from the streets of Diyarbakır and use them as they are but they don't; they are educating their people. They are educating them starting from their childhood. Political consciousness is very important.

1008

People do not become faithful out of the blue: They attain faith if they are proqerly educated. Religion stands on teaching.

1009

We need to look out for the followers of Süleyman Hilmi Tunahan. We need to look out and protect the followers of Treatise of Light, the Naqshbandis, the Qadiris as well. We need to constitute a reasonable, wide structure with political consciousness and fervor in line with the interests of our country and our people by educating them all without externalizing anyone.

1010

The government should attach great importance to spiritual improvement. We need to educate all hodjas, no matter from which side they come from, and raise their consciousness and lead them to become auspicious to the homeland and to our people.

1011

The PKK terror organization imagines that they can take over the Southeast with a small force; actually this is a characteristic of communism.

1012

The PKK terror organization is acting really spoiled. If we constitute a whole with a national consciousness, the PKK will have no force left but because the PKK is very well aware that national consciousness is not really wide spread among our people, and because they are fully aware that their own youth is conscious and politized, they are putting their trust in their own youth.

1013

The PKK terror organization is a great trouble for the whole region. The people there are not able to live in peace right now in the Southeast, they are living under the control of the mafia. How could one live comfortably under the control of the mafia? How could one live comfortably under the command of a gang? That will only be cleaned up with the system of the Mahdi.

1014

The government should be given the message that we are behind them. The whole country, all 80 million of us, should assume an attitude against the PKK as a whole right beside the government.

1015

The best thing to do is to increase the consciousness of faith; talking about the facts leading to faith, talking about the miracles of the Qur'an, instilling love for God to the minds and souls of people.

1016

The youngsters should be given courses on "national consciousness" just like courses on national security. The danger of separation, the importance of national togetherness, the importance of Turkish Islamic Union, the importance of brotherhood, the importance of love should be taught.

1017

There are some people who desire to divide Turkey. The government needs to start a scientific mobilization. There should be courses in all public schools that educate the students about the danger of the PKK. Students should be educated against communism, against materialistic philosophy and against the danger of national disintegration in secondary schools, highschools and universities and panels should be held.

1018

You are charged with “al-amr bi 'l-maʿruf wa 'n-nahy ʿan al-munkar” - enjoining the good and forbidding the wrong. God is the One Who will create the influence.

1019

China should be like Europe. Capital punishment should be abolished in China; anything other than that would not be modern. China would turn into a country of fear and people will not trust China.

1020

Islamic Union is the only way to solve the PKK problem fundamentally. The PKK cannot overcome the Islamic Union. At that time, the PKK will be like a mosquito on a lion.

1021

The concept of family does not exist in communism anyway. Children belong to the state in the communist mindset. Unless Darwinist materialist education is halted, unless the invalidity of communism is explained extensively and unless a national consciousness is very strongly taught to our youth as a special course, these scourges will continue to rain down on our people.

1022

Instead of the sense of devotion for fellow townsmens the PKK terror organization uses in the Southeast, we need to activate devotion for Islam. That is because devotion of Islam is very strong. Devotion for fellow townmens is something far below it in comparison. And because the people there are very pious, great success will be attained in the Southeast in this way. No success can be attained any other way.

1023

The PKK used fear in the beginning, they created a foundation with terror and violence but now they are approaching the Kurds with love, compassion and a spirit of fellowship. Our state should also approach our Kurdish brothers with faith, with the Qur'an, with the moral values of the Qur'an and with love by very strongly implementing the theme of the brotherhood of Muslims.

1024

In response to the education the PKK is giving to the militants in the mountains, our youth should definitely be given political education as well. Their love of country and nation should be reinforced and they should be brought up as young people with high political culture, determined to stand against separation, who are very well aware of the Darwinist, materialist threat, who know very well how to respond to communism. They should be fully equipped with all kinds of information against separatism, and be given the necessary intellectual foundations to raze the Stalinist theory of the PKK to the ground.

1025

PKK militants are being given an extensive political education. They dream about founding a great Kurdistan in the Southeast of Turkey. The great majority of our youth on the other hand is after making preparations for their own marriages, and some of them are simply after getting rich.

1026

Our Alawite brothers are very decent people; they have high moral values and they are really very kind. They are very extroverted. They are against radicalism, they are full of love, they are very decent and very mature. They are very wise people.

1027

There is no sense in bragging about not giving any more martyrs, if we are to lose the Southeast of Turkey as a result of that. Let all of us be martyrs so long as our homeland is not divided. Martydom is the greatest rank to attain, it is a blessing.

1028

You cannot see even one article from the radicals that talks about aesthetics, about love even for a single day. They do not talk about love not even for a day. Actually they find love difficult.

1029

Have a look at radicals; God stripped them of all blessings. I consider people in need free of that, but radicals are those who live a life of great misery. I mean one might be poor but still keep himself clean, well-cared for and beautiful. But how do we see the deprivation of all God's blessings in radicals because of their radicalism? We see that in their dirty and repugnant ugliness.

1030

The owners of aesthetics and beauty prevail in the world. Those who love women would prevail in the world. Some people assume that very nice results could be attained with radicalism but the fact is that no result can ever be attained with radicalism.

1031

If Muslims completely hold to Qur’an, if they act in compliance with the Qur’an, the beauty that would stem from this would literally hypnotize people. Everyone would like to live such a life.

1032

Just like our invoking the Name of God many times, words of endearment are repeated numerous times as well. That would create a feeling of relief in people’s hearts. Such words increase love and opens the heart.

1033

There is no sense in economizing in good words; such words could be said repeatedly. Love is based on repetition anyway. Love should be voiced over and over. For instance one does not say “I love you” only once in a lifetime; such words of endearment should be said numerous times.

1034

People turn towards whichever side they see love from. Love is the greatest blessing, the greatest power in the world.

1035

Religion does not serve politics, politics serve religion. We are making politics serve religion. Politics is simply a servant. Religion is the law of God. Knowingly or unwittingly, everyone would serve religion.

1036

The lower self, jealousy and egocentricity make one’s body do abnormal acts eventually. People assume that nothing bad will happen if one follows his lower self; actually lots of things happen. It would ruin a man. The lower self is the propelling force in those who commit suicide. It drives them mad and drags them into committing suicide. They also commit murders because they abide by their lower selves.

1037

God gives one aggressive, abnormal wrong feelings to the lower self, but He also shows the ways to be protected against those with the verses of the Qur’an. The whole system of trial is founded upon that anyways. People need to recognize this highly dangerous threat and be alerted and be careful against it. We are to look for the acts that please God the most.

1038

It is not possible to carry out possitive studies with one’s lower self. Lower selves cannot be exonerated. It is a force that is active in a person’s soul constantly commanding evil.

1039

People generally do not attach necessary importance to the concept of the lower self. Actually it is a special force embedded in humans, it is a negative power; may God forbid it might drive one crazy and might even make one commit murder, it might make one commit suicide. All these troubles happen under the influence of the lower self. People imagine that nothing would happen if they go by their lower selves but actually lots of things happen. It might take one over and drag them into troubles,; the lower self suffocates one.

1040

A Muslim needs to give himself in to the prayers, he needs to focus on the prayer but prayers should not be tiresome. Look at the prayers in the Qur’an. The prayers of the Prophets are always short. “My Lord, increase me in knowledge” (Surat At-Taha;114) That is it. Short but frequent. “My Lord, Guide us on the Straight Path” “My Lord, keep me thankful for the blessing You bestowed on me, keep me acting rightly, pleasing You.”

1041

Saying prayer is very important. What stops the feelings of anguish? Saying prayer does. A Muslim needs to say prayer. For instance, let us say that one is going to make a speech; a Muslim would say, “O My Lord, make me speak beautifully.” Let us say he will eat; “O My Lord, let me enjoy the flavor of this food and make them means for my health. Grant me the joy of being one of those who thanks God.”

1042

God likes those who live a decent legitimate life, those who live rightly. That is because the light in the face of those who live illegally goes out. They lose their wit, their foresight and their perception. They can’t be stable. Honest people on the other hand are balanced and stable.

1043

The sound of one’s conscience is a sort of revelation. A person would be doing the right thing if he acts by this revelation and the wrong thing if he does not.

1044

Ascension means passing from the third dimension to the fourth dimension. There are dimensions in the universe. We are living in a three- dimensional universe; There is a fourth dimension, but we are unable to see it right now but those in the fourth dimension can see us. Angels and djinn are watching us right now but we are unable to see them. For us to be able to see them we should become light. Our Prophet (saas) saw them because he became dematerialized.

1045

During our Prophet’s (saas) ascension, his body became light and became dematerialized. Once one becomes dematerialized, he can go anywhere in the speed of imagination.

1046

Religion is honor. Demanding something that religion does not demand would be ignominous, honor would then be disrupted. If you claim that God is saying something while He clearly does not, if you make additions to the religion of God, that is when one would actually become dishonorable, that is when one would lose his honor.

1047

It would be great if the Islamic world were to embrace Putin, cooperate with him and if they were to include Russia as an important member of the Islamic Union. What Russia is concerned about the most is to be left alone. All will be solved if the Islamic world would embrace Russia. Islam would prevail throughout the whole world in a flash.

1048

The right wing, conservatism, should not promote a life lacking quality. There is a mass of people who speak a lot and misinterpret rightist ideology most unbecomingly; because the Middle East is under their control, this darkness, this impure appearance can be widely seen in many places.

1049

Let Turkey relish religion, let the whole country relish religion. Let the warmth and the protectiveness of religion envelop everywhere. Let us see the warmth of religion in the clubs, let us see the warmth of religion on the beaches, in the national assembly, everywhere. It would be great if that happens.

1050

The Prophet (saas) was only charged with abiding by the Qur’an. It is not possible for him to make additions or deletions from the Qur’an.

1051

Mourning is the name we give to a respectful attitude towards those we’ve lost. Mourning doesn’t mean being frantic with sorrow.

1052

Radicals cannot succeed in attaining quality and because they cannot attain quality, they try to put it out of sight.

1053

Idolaters would not want any good to fall on Muslims, they wouldn’t want them to laugh, to have fun, to dress well, to live in a beautiful house, to have a good education, to enjoy high quality. They advocate squalor like theirs everywhere they go. They want everyone to live in that kind of squalor. It is apparent that we would not give way to that. God wouldn’t allow that and He will make His servants instrumental in preventing it.

1054

If you submit to the Qur’an, if you love God and live love and passion, God would beautify you as well. What would happen to one if one lives in jealousy, hatred, rage and malice? The cells of the body would become cancerous. That person’s nose would get ugly, their mouth, hands, their whole body would become ugly.

1055

The struggle against radicalism is given with the Qur’an.

1056

We are spreading religiousness in Turkey but we will not allow radicalism.

1057

Compassion, mercy, leniency: That is what we ask from God, is it not? What do we want in Heaven? We want Almighty God to forgive us and to be lenient, compassionate and protective towards us. We therefore need to treat people in the same manner as well.

1058

A destructive attitude is unacceptable for a Muslim. God says, “...speak to them with gentleness and generosity.” He says, “If you had been rough or hard of heart, they would have scattered from around you. “

1059

If you want your words to be healing and instructive, you should be aware that the Qur’an has taken a lenient, gentle attitude as a basis. That means fair admonition, saying good words, approaching people with compassion; those are the commands of the Qur’an.

1060

When you talk about Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) you will be aware of the antichrist (dajjal); when you talk about the dajjal you will be aware of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). These two constitute a whole. I mean everything is created with its contrast; like day and night, or good and bad. If there is a dajjal, there absolutely is a Mahdi; if there is a Mahdi, there absolutely is a dajjal.

1061

A Muslim would be aware of evil plottings but would not be distressed about them; that is because God is the One Who creates them as well, so a Muslim should keep his calm.

1062

What kind of an attitude is mentioned in the verses of the Qur’an? One that doesn’t give way to any tension, rage, or any kind of disturbance in the heart; not giving way to such manners. Not feeling afraid or sad, not being uneasy. In short, the Qur’an mentions an attitude that avoids all sorts of attitudes that could psychologically disturb a person.

1063

A Muslim should be steadfast. I mean he should refrain from losing his temper or getting angry.

1064

How should fair admonition be done? It should be in a non-offending manner that doesn’t hurt anyone’s feelings, that doesn’t agitate anyone, that doesn’t disturb anyone.

1065

There is a beginning and an end for everything. God has neither. Beginnings and endings are only for those who are created: Yet Alhamdulillah, because we are carrying the soul of God we will have a beginning but not an ending in Heaven.

1066

One should always think good of God. Just like one always thinks good about the one he loves, he should also have an absolutely good opinion about God as well. When something happens, a Muslim says, “Almighty God has certainly created this as a blessing. Almighty God knows the best.”

1067

When Almighty God creates a detail, when He creates something with His wisdom, a Muslim would say, “We might not have a full understanding of God’s wisdom but He knows everything about us. We’ve submitted ourselves to Him.”

1068

The artistry of God is being very gloriously manifested in the human cell. If we could put a person inside a cell and let him live there for a week, his forehead would never stop prostrating. People have weak faith because they cannot see that properly, because they cannot see those worlds.

1069

If a person could get inside a chromosome and witness that system he could never stop prostrating all his life. If he could enter a human cell, if he could become a protein and witness the working system there, if he could carry out the duty of a protein himself, if he could wander around inside a cell he would be out of breath with awe, he would fall in love with God. One should be able to get inside that, inside that human cell with his heart, with his mind.

1070

One should see what God means. God wants to draw us near to Him; He wants us to remember Him. If you insistently resist remembering, if you do not want to get closer to God, disasters will fall upon you like rain and they will keep coming.

1071

At the moment, there are clouds of meteors waiting all around the world: That is something that indicates the closeness of the Last Day. They are all waiting for God’s command to attack.

1072

Violence brings about violence. Only with love, mercy, friendship and brotherhood can stability and balance be attained in Libya.

1073

One’s connection to God should never be severed. If one severs his connection to God, he would lose his trust and submission to God. Once that happens, he would become very tense, angry and uneasy. Submission to God is one of the greatest blessings on Earth that should never be forgotten, even for a second.

1074

The burden that bigotry and radicalism brings about is very weighty. It ruins the society, it ruins people; it makes countries totally ruined.

1075

Keeping a straight face, keeping silent, constantly sulking, being worn out and exhausted; those acts would make the satan smile, they would make the satan rejoice. A Muslim would never act in that way. That would be unlawful and unbecoming in the religion.

1076

One should refrain from those who do not fear God, from those who do not act on faith, those who do not act with the Qur’an. That is because they have no fundamental law. You would never know what they are thinking. They could do anything. But a Muslim does have a fundamental law and abides by the laws of God.

1077

If you have faith you need to be transparent and sincere. Only then would people who look at things sincerely and transparently approach you with love as well.

1078

The spirit of showing compassion to women would increase love for women as well. Some people only see women as sexual objects. They would then approach them in the spirit of hatred. Compassion and the spirit of mercy and protection would increase love in folds. Actually compassion is mentioned all the time in the Qur’an. I mean there is love mixed with mercy, a protective kind of love.

1079

Everywhere would be radiantly enlightened for Muslims because they would look at everywhere with radiance, with faith. God enlightens everywhere for them, He turns everywhere into Heaven for them.

1080

Mourning is only acceptable in the sense of respect, in the sense of showing courtesy, concentrating on the topic, being interested and concerned with it. It is not in the sense of being frantic with sorrow, crying, wallowing, freaking out, and feeling pain. Those would all be ascribing partners to God.

1081

Robotic machines should be used in mines, man power should not allowed in mines under the ground.

1082

May God close the foresight of those who wish to divide Turkey, may God take away the perception of those who wish to disintegrate Turkey. May God make all disasters envelop them. We would never let Turkey be divided in any way.

1083

Churches are the houses of God, synagogues are the houses of God and so are the mosques. Everyone can worship wherever they like. God rendered the whole world a place of worship for us.

1084

Islamophobia is formed because of radicalism. That is the doing of bigots. Without the system of the Mahdi, bigots would have erased Islam from the face of this world. The system of the Mahdi is the reason why Islam remained in this world. The system of the Mahdi is the reason why they fail to disintegrate Turkey. Or else, they were planning to raze Turkey to the ground.

1085

If one feels frantic with sorrow for a person who's gone to the Sight of God, who's gone to His Heaven; if one cries his eyes out grieving that means he doesn't appreciate what God created; that means he is rebellious against God, may God forbid. But if he thanks God for what He created, if he praises Him, if he welcomes this ultimate union, his meeting His Lord with joy, if he welcomes passing to Heaven; that is a characteristic of a Muslim. The other is the characteristic of idolaters.

1086

Mourning after a deceased person was a custom of the idolaters of Mecca. It is a pagan tradition reminiscent from the Sumerians, from the ancient Greek.

1087

There is no meaning to life without religion, may God forbid. I live for religions, for God, we all do insha'Allah.

1088

Religion is the other name for the Middle East. Religion is the spirit of the Middle East. Middle East wouldn't exist without religion. Life wouldn't exist without religion.

1089

Unity can clearly be attained with the spirit of the system of the Mahdi. Everyone says; "let us be in unity." But no one would ever take such wishes seriously. Racism, sectarianism, regionalism, even district based discrimination is widespread. Since our Prophet (saas) is very well aware of this trouble on his ummah, he specifically charges his Mahdi with that task.

1090

There will be a whole different Turkey in three-five years. The world will be completely different. The vigorous and strong structure of the system of the Mahdi is progressing step by step Alhamdulillah.

1091

God bestows a special radiance to those with good morality. Otherwise a facial expression like that of the Pharaoh or Nimrod would be appear in one's face. Submit yourself to God and become radiant.

1092

Reaching the Treatise of Light somehow would expand the horizons of a person; it opens up one's world. That is why it would be very beneficial for every one of our brothers and sisters to have at least a piece of Treatise of Light at their homes. That is because the language used in the Treatise of Light is very sincere; it is the language of Islam.

1093

Tanks, cannon shells, water cannons; none of those will exist in the End Times. They will all be used for industrial purposes. There will be no weapons at the time of the Mahdi (pbuh).

1094

In the time of the Mahdi (pbuh) no one would attempt to lynch someone else; there will only be beauty, love and sincerity. There will be fear of God and love of God everywhere we go. Now, people are hurting one another for no reason.

1095

At the time of the Mahdi no one would ever throw things at each other. Consequently there would be no need for even one anti-riot water cannon vehicle. Those vehicles will be used for watering gardens in the End Times, at the time of the Mahdi (pbuh).

1096

There will be no need for the police, for the anti-riot water cannon vehicles; there will be no need for tear-gas in the time of the Mahdi (pbuh). Why is that? That is because love will prevail in the time of the Mahdi(pbuh). Love does not prevail right now; violence and terror is running rampant.

1097

Satan has acquired an enormous army. The army of the Mahdi (pbuh) is very small, but you will see that small army will intellectually pull down the army of the antichrist. The army of the satan means the army of the antichrist.

1098

First God shows us troubles and evil thoroughly; later on He will show us pureness, superiority and beauty. At the moment the world is a living hell. A little later, the world will turn into the Heaven.

1099

Sincerity is of crucial importance. How important is it? It is the only way of salvation. God says; “The noblest among you in God’s Sight is the one with the most piety.” Almighty God defines being sincere as the main condition of piety.

1100

Most of the people are being brought up far removed from religion, removed from the love of God and the fear of God. Many of them are ruthless and cruel. It would be unacceptable to leave innocent, angelic children to the streets all by themselves.

1101

Azerbaijan is very dear to us. We are two different states of one nation. It is like our Rize, like our Konya. But it has been separated from us for now. That is an artificial separation. We will put aside this separation. Our Minister of Foreign Affairs is striving intensely to this end but that would be vouchsafed to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).

1102

What the CHP (Republican People's Party) should be doing is to stand up with a modern understanding of Islam and to loudly advocate the Islamic Union, to advocate the Turkish Islamic Union in line with the opinions of Ataturk and to advocate the facts of the Qur'an.

1103

Abdullah Öcalan (leader of the PKK Terror Organization) does not accept family, he doesn’t accept religion, he wants communist ruling. We will not let a new North Korea be formed in the South East of Turkey. May God forbid, had something like that somehow be formed, it would swallow the whole country in a very short period of time. All of Turkey would then be lost.

1104

Autocracy means separation. We would not let a communist Kurdistan be founded in the South East of Turkey. We would not let a communist Stalinist ruling be formed in those lands.

1105

Muslims recognize the Mahdi (pbuh) with their foresight, perception and with the light of their faith. Just like people recognizing our Prophet (saas) with the light of their faith, just like his students recognizing Bediuzzaman Said Nursi with the light of their faith, Muslims will also recognize the Mahdi (pbuh) with the light of their faith.

1106

A Muslim lives for the good pleasure of God and he dies for the good pleasure of God. If one does not live for the good pleasure of God, life would turn into a living hell for him/her. Everything should be for the good pleasure of God; only then life would be beautiful. Heaven would be beautiful with the good pleasure of God as well.

1107

We will build a life like Heaven for our Kurdish brothers and sisters in the South East. We will make Diyarbakır, Mardin, Siirt like Paris and London. We will wipe out PKK with science, law and legal system. There will be no more threat of PKK and no more PKK unruliness. We will not let the fear of PKK remain, insha’Allah .

1108

We used to live together with Jews, Armenians and Greeks as brothers. They are the People of the Book and are entrusted to us by God. Again with the establishment of the Turkish Islamic Union we will insha’Allah embrace all of them with love.

1109

Turkey, Pakistan, Egypt, Israel will all unite as brothers in our time. A great Islamic Union, a great Islamic Unity will be formed. The characteristic of this union will be that it will be based on an intense love, friendship and good intentions.

1110

If Ocalan (leader of the PKK terror organization) is released and let to head the PKK in the South East, the South East region would be gone. That is really dangerous. There is such a course, such a preparation leading to that. Our people should be very careful about this.

1111

Music is a beauty. It gives relief to hearts, it gives contentment. It fortifies hearts. Even the Islamic scholars say;” When there is a contraction in the heart, beautiful music would give relief to the heart, it eases the heart.” Masha’Allah. This is what Hazrat Mevlana practiced.

1112

Did the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) have tanks and cannonballs? No, he didn’t. Did he have thousands of students? No, he didn’t. Did he have money? No, he didn’t. What did he have? He had sincerity. He was the Mahdi of his time. God made him victorious. What condition does Almighty God has for that? One should be able to endure hardships, one should be patient in the face of hardships and sufferings. Or else no result can be attained if one tries to present himself as if he is facing hardships yet not really facing any hardships.

1113

At the time of the Mahdi, it will not be possible to attack Muslims intellectually because of the Mahdi. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will build a barrier; the barrier of Dhul Qarnayn, insha’Allah.

1114

The best thing the CHP (Republican People’s Party) can do is to develop a spirit that addresses the spirit of the people, of the people of Anatolia, the spirit of our people.

1115

It is completely different to cry out of fear of God, out of excitement. But if a person starts crying, saying, "Why did this happen like that?" that would be ascribing partners to God.

1116

People die every day. We are living in the world, this is a place of testing. People get sick every day. How do they come up with the idea of mourning? There is no such thing in the Qur'an. There is no such understanding in Islam. It only has a place in idolatry, in the totemist mentality, in the belief system of the idolaters. This is a characteristic of pagan religions, but there is no such thing in Islam.

1117

The mentality that urges one to cry after everything is abnormal. This is a remnant system from the idolaters of Mecca, from the idolaters of Sumeria, from way back. That is outright insincerity. This is an act which shows that one does not have trust in God- may God forbid. One would only cry if he thinks –may God forbid- that God is not the One Who creates that event.

1118

There is no spirit of mourning in Islam. That is idolatry. It is rebellion against God, it is unlawful, it is a sin. Consequently, talking about something that actually means idolatry as if it is a religious act would be wrong.

1119

The system of the Mahdi is a very beautiful activity of the brain which destroys the spirit of desolation and desperation by instilling a vibrant hope, lively excitement and vivacious fervor to the world. We will see this result, insha'Allah, more clearly in 10 or 20 years.

1120

The system of the Mahdi gives determination, fervor and excitement to the world. It gives a spirit to the Muslim world. Or else the vast majority of Muslims would very easily be consumed in the swamp of lethargy, regret and hopelessness.

1121

Almost every religious community, every congregation can easily go on with their path by taking heart from the system of the Mahdi and by fortifying their faith and fervor right now. Or else a great mass would have caved in and would have lost their resolution long ago.

1122

People will approach the community of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) with suspicion as well. The whole Islamic world will have suspicions about them, and because of those suspicions they will only be 313 people.

1123

The human brain is small, but it controls the whole body. The community of the Mahdi will be small as well and they will be the brain of the Islamic world; the brain of the Islamic world will be a small community. That is the wisdom behind the system of the Mahdi: I mean they will be a small group, but they will constitute the brain that operates the whole Islamic world.

1124

People Almighty God has specifically created recognize the Mahdi (pbuh) and accept him because this is in their destiny. Or else satan will try to create an enormous resistance in people against the Mahdi; it will whisper into their ears saying; “Upon my word do not approach him Beware, he is very dangerous.” God will only gather his sincere students around him.

1125

Sincerity is the greatest weapon of the Mahdi (pbuh). He becomes the Mahdi because he attains a level of sincerity that no other person could. This is why God makes him successful.

1126

Let me give you a secret. God doesn’t say,” Those who have weapons, those who have power, those who have money and those who have political power will prevail in the world.” God doesn’t say ; ” Those who perform their prayers, those who fast will prevail in the world.” God says, “Those sincere servants of Mine will attain salvation and prevail in the world.” He only mentions the sincere ones.

1127

The system of the Mahdi means the profession of teaching love; it is friendship, brotherhood, beauty and sincerity.

1128

What is important in this world is love and faith; once you attain that you would be attaining the best rank anyway. The rank one would have in the Sight of God is important.

1129

Almighty God conceals the Mahdi because people would persecute him if they knew. He conceals the Mahdi behind 70 veils. They keep saying, “This person cannot be the Mahdi (pbuh) because of this and that aspect.” They invent 70 different excuses. Almighty God conceals him with Hidden Knowledge: With the Secret Knowledge, with the knowledge of Unseen.

1130

Without love, when one approaches someone else lovelessly, a tragic ambition, hatred and rage appears in him. Such people are after appeasing hatred instead of appeasing love; they then decimate one another. Hatred increases hatred. This can only be removed with true and sincere love.

1131

Those who do not accept the plan, the model of our Prophet (saas) invent their own plan and model and continue being strangled inside that model. No plan other than our Prophet (saas)’s would ever work and that is the plan of the system of the Mahdi.

1132

Islam is the true Christianity; Islam is the true Judaism. Those who want to be true Christians should actually be Muslims. Those who want to be true Jews should also be Muslims. Once they become Muslims, they would become true Mohammedans and true Jews, they would become true Christians; perfect and flawless.

1133

The system of the Mahdi is an environment of brotherhood and friendship, it is an environment of love. People would not be swaggering, they would not suffer. At the moment, cocaine, heroin, weed, alcohol are all consumed like water. Why is this? It is because of the lack of love. People start using drugs to be saved from the pain of that scarcity of love.

1134

People are always alone nowadays; they have no one to love them, they have no friends, no companions. As a matter of fact, passion is a very beautiful feeling; love is a very beautiful feeling; affection is a very beautiful feeling; loving and being loved is very nice, respect is very nice, being appreciated is very nice. Many people do not appreciate one another, they do not respect each other and that is horrible.

1135

They should forget about a radical system in the system of the Mahdi. They should forget about a bigoted system. They should not expect any good from such troubles and such scourges. Of course there is goodness in everything, but that is a whole other issue; those who expect to attain beauty should melt inside the spirit of the system of the Mahdi. Anything other than that would not work.

1136

We would not accept anything that might drag Turkey into separation. Presidency system can thus never be accepted in any condition! They should forget about that. We want peace in Turkey. Turkey will remain as a whole.

1137

Islam means the most beautiful of everything. It means the highest quality; it means the rightest of everything. This is the meaning of Islam. Islam is the most perfect, most reasonable, rightest and the best of everything.

1138

Love and sincerity is one within the other. Those who do not know love wouldn’t know sincerity; those who do not know sincerity wouldn’t know love. Those are related with reason and reason is related with the Qur’an, Qur’an is related with the fear of God.

1139

Heaven is the real abode. This world is only a place that we are being trained in. There is something missing in everything. Muslims are going towards the Hereafter rapidly and everyone is going towards there. The good ones and the bad ones are constantly being differentiated between.

1140

A stern person might become a lenient, gentle individual; a stubborn person might become an easy-going person. No one is bound to remain the same, no idea is bound to remain constant. Anything that is wrong can be corrected with love, science and reason, insha’Allah.

1141

Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is a power higher than the Freemasons. Freemasonry serves the Mahdi (pbuh); not the other way round.

1142

The system of the Mahdi will start showing itself gradually, with joy, with compassion, within the natural lifestyle of human nature.

1143

God will make the individual that the people least expect the Mahdi (pbuh). Mahdi (pbuh) is not someone people would expect; he is the least expected one.

1144

If we lose our spirit, if we lose our spiritual power as a country; if we lose our faith, we would be ruined, may God forbid. But, insha’Allah, with this power of faith, with this power of the system of the Mahdi, we will prevail in the world by the leave of God.

1145

Right now they have made religious ladies look like men. They have given the traditional orthodox Muslim women an outlook that looks exactly like men. Our Prophet (saas) says; “Women looking like men is a portent of the Last Day.” Ladies need to look like ladies, insha’Allah.

1146

The whole world politics is being designed according to the system of the Mahdi right now. Why would the US enter Iraq? Why would they turn Syria into this mess? The goal is only the system of the Mahdi.

1147

The whole world is getting ready for the Mahdi. Freemasonry has targeted the system of the Mahdi ever since it was first founded; it has targeted to serve the Mahdi (pbuh). It has been bent, fidgeted but eventually it will end its mission by serving the system of the Mahdi.

1148

It is evident that this world is a place specifically created for training. It has no aspect to be devoted for or to have an ambition about. When one doesn’t turn it into an ambition God helps Muslims in wondrous ways and creates an amazing environment for them.

1149

God says that His sincere servants will attain salvation. Sincerity is a subject matter is frequently overlooked. Actually God shows sincerity as the key for salvation. That is because if one is sincere, he/she would live by the religion as is due and live the best of everything.

1150

The system of the Mahdi is the most important incident ever since the creation of this world. All the prophets, ever since the Prophet Adam (pbuh) have drawn attention to the Mahdi. The Prophet Noah (pbuh), the Prophet Abraham (pbuh), the Prophet Moses (pbuh) have all drawn attention to the Mahdi (pbuh).

1151

The PKK terrorist movement is a movement of the system of the antichrist. There is an environment in the Southeast in which the antichrist is badgering our mothers and sisters living there and the antichrist wants to divide us; it wants to take our brothers and sisters away from us. And there is the movement of the system of the Mahdi there against it.

1152

The oppression of the PKK should be removed from the people of the Southeast. When there is such pressure of the PKK the people living there cannot vote freely. There is a massive threat environment. For that reason, before all else, the threat of the PKK should be removed from the region urgently so that our people in the Southeast can freely and peacefully vote.

1153

The system of the Mahdi will appear with a very sincere and beautiful attitude. Any reasonable person would accept Islam; Islam is the most beautiful and truest of everything.

1154

PKK is a fierce cancer formation. The necessary remedy should be given and it should definitely be treated.

1155

The system of the Mahdi is a tutorage of love, tutorage of compassion; it is a tutorage of affection. Mahdi is a person who teaches the falsity of rebellion, rampancy and perversion; he is an individual who injects love into the hearts of people with great affection.

1156

Islamic Union is an immediate religious obligation. It is a religious obligation for us to concentrate all our attention to the Unity of Islam. Consequently it is a religious obligation for us to concentrate on the system of the Mahdi.

1157

Striving to be the Mahdi, putting an effort to this end wouldn’t be enough. One needs to be born as the Mahdi. He should be assigned as the Mahdi in his destiny by God.

1158

The government should increase the number of the rangers and give them the rights given to the police officers. There should be rangers in every village, in every corner of the country. It would be highly dangerous to abolish the institution. On the contrary, this institution should be revived.

1159

There is nothing that belongs to us; everything belongs to God. All beauties, making people loved, making people liked all belongs to God. Almighty God is the Eternal, Infinite Beauty. We understand this from His Manifestations. Almighty God manifests only a portion of His Beauty and we all feel out of breath.

1160

The mentality of mourning is fundamentally wrong. A Muslim would never do that. God is the One Who brings us to this world, and God is the One Who takes us back to His Sight. The right thing to do is to submit to our destiny and to put our trust in the goodness, beauty and abundance of what God gives. Anything other than that would not befit a Muslim.

1161

As Almighty God is the One Who takes the life of that person, He brings one to this world with goodness and He takes that person to His Sight with goodness when he dies. So there is no meaning in crying. It is a characteristic of a Muslim to be content with what our Lord has ordained in our destiny and see the good in that destiny.

1162

A Muslim would always be in joy and merriment and would be content with what God commands. Hazrat Mevlana says; “Make it a feast after I am gone.” This is what “Night of Union” means, that is why Mevlevis are dancing with those musical instruments.

1163

The Heaven is an abode of joy and it is eternal happiness, eternal beauty. When you are sending your child to the Hereafter you are actually sending your child to an abode that everything is perfect, so mourning would be extremely wrong while doing so. It would mean to say; -may God forbid- “I didn’t like what God wanted, I know better”. And that would be ascribing partners to God.

1164

There are ugly ones among people but the advantage they have is that they can turn that ugliness into a beauty with good morality. I mean they can become a very radiant, very beloved people.

1165

A Muslim should see the beautiful things and also the ugly ones; yet he should prefer the beautiful things and look for the wisdom behind the ugliness. There is nothing ugly in the Heaven. Ugliness is only created in this world for testing. Everything and everyone is beautiful in the Heaven; trees, plants, people, children and all food.

1166

If Turkey were as powerful as the Ottomans, as the USA, then there could be a federative system, an autonomy, there could be cantons, it wouldn’t matter. But right now we are facing an enormous danger.

1167

Disintegration is the gravest danger Turkey is facing right now. That is the greatest risk. All our power, all our force, all our dignity would be ruined. Our economy would be ruined; that is a grave danger. We would be torn into pieces, may God forbid, there would be nothing left to call Turkey. That would ruin the Islamic World; that would ruin all the Muslims. There would be no one left to call Kurdish anyway.

1168

Our Kurdish brothers and sisters, our Laz brothers and sisters, all of us have united under the name of Turkishness. That is the name for this unity. The name of unity is Turkishness. Or else, this is not in the sense genetic superiority, not in the sense of genetic code.

1169

There is beauty in unity and solidarity; there is power in these. That is why God tells us to be in unity and solidarity.

1170

One might think that Kurdish people will unite and be happy eventually. Actually, that will never happen. They are thinking about a massive Kurdish massacre. What does founding a communist Kurdistan in the region mean? It would make the region a target for whole Europe and the US. They will tear the region to shreds.

1171

We have a beautiful country that blocks the way of persecutors and that protects inoffensive people. We have a very small force, a very small piece of land anyway. And if they attempt to divide that small land it would bring about the Last Day. That would end with the coming of the Last Day. That will be the end of this world, they should forget about that.

1172

Our Prophet (saas) says; “Women will become like men in the End Times.” That happened exactly as our Prophet foretold. They have ruined their natural disposition. In the time of the Mahdi women will look like women, men will look like men, the buildings will be like buildings, arts will be like art, music will be as it should be; everything will fall into place and everything will be even more beautiful insha’Allah.

1173

God has taken the beauty of women, the love of women from the face of this world because people grew away from Him, because they developed a tendency towards Darwinism, materialism, because they tend towards materialist spirit, and especially because they grew away from the Qur’an.

1174

Praying without clinging on to necessary means would not be acceptable. If you are saying that you will perform your prayers, yet go and sit in a corner, even if you say “My Lord let me perform my prayers,” you would simply be sitting there doing nothing. You should do your actual praying by going and performing your prayers. The determination and the effort you make would be your actual praying.

1175

PKK movement is a very ambitious, very cruel movement. People might think that there will be a moderate, calm and plain administration, but this is not the case. They are trying to approach very moderately for now in order to set their trap; but once they establish the communist government, the cruel and sharp aspect of the PKK will reveal itself.

1176

When the PKK seize political power, meaning when communist reign, dictatorship of proletariat is established, they would run off Muslim’s feet. They would not leave a single mosque behind, they would not let a single masjid standing. They would not let any religious books, any religious works.

1177

Recently, especially after the statements of Abdullah Ocalan, PKK tried to present itself as if they are religious. That is a very dangerous tactic.

1178

Those who pick sides among Muslims would be eliminated. It is religiously unlawful to take sides among Muslims.

1179

We need to strive to make things right between the Gulen community and the government. It is a religious obligation to arrange an amicable settlement between them, it is the command of the Qur’an; the command of God. God says; “If two parties of the Muslims fight make peace between them.” Consequently we cannot be a side in such a dispute.

1180

This nation, this country is a blessed country. God has chosen our nation. The country is an auspicious country, people are auspicious people, and the cause they strive for is an auspicious one. Everything will be beautiful. In a few years everything will be much pleasant and much more beautiful.

1181

An independent Kurdistan will never be found in our South East region. They should forget about that. There will be a great Islamic structuring, there will be Islamic Unity, there will be a great Turkish Islamic Union. That union will cover Russia, Armenia an Israel as well. They will all be included and the world would thus attain peace and tranquility. The notion of racism will be annihilated.

1182

Setting Muslims against one another is not acceptable; the right thing to do is to better Muslims, to correct their mistakes and to make them useful. There are only a handful of intellectuals among Muslims. Why should we oppress one of those few we have? We should win them over. If those handful of people join together that would constitute an amazing unity. It would be a grave mistake to try to crush those “handfuls.”

1183

In such turmoil, Muslims attempting to go at each other hammer and tongs, attempting to spend each other and especially attempting to set intellectual Muslim masses against each other might be a PKK Project. It seems that an instruction has been given from somewhere to crush all elements that would resist the PKK and distigration. We should be very careful in the face of this.

1184

Muslim intellectuals should respect each other; they should love and watch over each other. The Fethullah Gulen community, Naqshbandi community, Qadiriyya and all sorts of religious communities can be counted among them. They should most definitely come together and state that they love one another, that they are friends and brothers with one another. Anything contrary would be very dangerous.

1185

All the Islamic world is restless. No state could bring about peace and tranquility to the Islamic world. Russia is restless, Europe is restless, USA is restless. The whole world will attain peace and tranquility with the Jesus Messiah and the Mahdi (pbuh) insha'Allah.

Our PM is using a very well-intentioned language. He is employing a Muslim way of speaking and he enjoys the richness it brings about. He is enjoying the richness of the Treatise of Light right now; this is the richness of the Bediuzzaman. That is why he had cleared everything up and why he is at ease. That is very important insha'Allah.

1187

Withdrawing our police officers, our soldiers from that region, decreasing the security forces would drag the majority of the people living there into fear and into feeling respect to the power of PKK. The ranger force should also be very strong, so should the police, soldier and gendarme forces. Especially civil elements, I mean the civil law enforcement agencies should be very powerful.

1188

If the people of the South East region feel themselves secure enough, they would comfortably vote for the party they want. I mean if they could be able to cast their votes without worrying, in comfort in the South East, the Felicity Party would also collect very high numbers of votes, the MHP [Nationalist Movement Party] would collect a lot of votes, CHP [Republican People’s Party] would not be erased from that region but collect a lot of votes, AK Party would collect a lot of votes and it would be just like the other parts of Turkey. The balances there have been disturbed because of the fear they are subjected to.

1189

Even though the people of the South East [of Turkey] are devoutly religious they are voting for the left wing. This shows the severity of the pressure applied on them in that region. Whereas the danger of the PKK [terror organization] in that region should have been made zero. When that happens, the people living there will enjoy utmost freedom and their votes would be clean and lawful like mother’s milk. But an election held while there is intimidation and an atmosphere of violence, with pressure exerted and with PKK making appearances would not be healthy.

1190

God is the One Who gives goods to people. If people attempt to keep all they are given as their own possessions, the body becomes gangrene, the whole system becomes gangrene. The social system, life becomes gangrene, economic crisis starts and people plunge into afflictions.

1191

Satan shouldn’t be allowed to deceive people by presenting salat and other religious services as difficult, Millions of people keep aloof from religion just because taking ablution and performing prayers are presented as if they are very difficult to do.

1192

All the commands of the Qur’an are like livesavers. Or else people would be suffocated, life would suffocate them. Men are already living inside the stream called life. People succeed to remain alive without being suffocated because of these beauties. Without these blessings people would be suffocated and sink under this water

1193

One would be happy and have his mind relieved when he performs his prayers, when he performs ablution, when he submits to God’s will, mentions the Name of God, reads the Qur’an. God has created man in a way that he would feel that need. One would be suffocated if he doesn’t live all these beauties. These are all blessings that prevent one to be drawn in that water, these are lifesaving blessings.

1194

Submitting to God’s Will is the greatest comfort in this world. Palaces wouldn’t make one happy, but submitting to God’s Will would. Once you submit to God’s Will, all sufferrings would dissappear. That is because man is created as weak. God has created this as a blessing to man.

1195

One should seek refuge in God from profligating. One should seek refuge in God from tyrannizing. One should seek refuge in God from being haughty. If you behave haughtily, if you become a tyrann, if you profligate, God would destroy you.

1196

Love is a requirement. If you attempt to attain something with egocentricity, the egocentricity you will be facing would suffocate you. If you step up cunningly, even more cunning ones would suffocate you. If you attempt to play tricks, the one you are facing would play ten times more tricks. Beauty cannot be attained with tricks, with rouses and with fraud; it can be attained with honesty, sincerity and love.

1197

Russian people sufferred a lot. The world should protect them and show compassion to them. We should not leave them to their own means. It is a cold country, a cold climate, an outcasted community. We should put these away and approach them with compassion.

1198

Love is the remedy for all troubles.

1199

All troubles in the world stem from lovelessness. Lovelessness brings about lovelessness. Lovelessness brings about violence.

1200

The duty of the Mahdi (pbuh) is to be a man of love. He teaches love and beauty; this is his profession. God makes one love, God makes one love all those He created. The person charged of making the world a place like heaven is called the Mahdi.

1201

Mahdi (pbuh) is the person who performs everything that is beautiful, everything that is really very very beautiful. He is the one who will encourage the performance of beauty, the one who will perform beauty and who will make the world perform beauty.

1202

When we love a person we love him/her for the good pleasure of God. What does the good pleasure of God mean? It stems from the services rendered for Islam. Does he/she unite Muslims? Does he/she ensure unity? Does he/she work to quell dissension? Does he/she develop an attitude against division? If we see all these in a person, we should love that person for the good pleasure of God. We feel that love as a religious observation.
