Love is the purpose of creation of this world. Without love politics would not have a meaning. Life would not have a meaning either. God created the purpose of this world as love.

2013[edit]

The advocators of peace, the proponents of love should be much more determined, much more strong willed.
At the moment the world is restless. Only in the time of the system of the Mahdi all the streets will attain peace and tranquility.
  • May Allah give us strength to make love, compassion, modernity, democracy, freedom, everything beautiful and everything Allah loves prevail in the world.
    • 20 April 2013.
  • The proponents of violence are killing Muslims and they are killing Christians, they are killing Jews as well; they are enemies to everyone. Allah does not consider those people as Muslims. They are idolaters. They are pagans. I mean they do not accept the Qur’an as their basis.
    • 20 April 2013.
  • Allah wants us to be merciful, compassionate and forgiving. And He wants us to look at everyone with compassion — so much so that in the Qur’an, Allah wants us to assure the life security of even idolaters.
    • 20 April 2013.
  • The advocators of peace, the proponents of love should be much more determined, much more strong willed. They might try to deter us from our path, deviate us from our way but we should continue with determination and strong will.
    • 20 April 2013.
  • We will have even more successful and even more fruitful movements. Radical, merciless, pro-violence views will be wiped out and we will make this world a place like Heaven on Earth insha’Allah. The world will be an abode of peace, it will be a festive place.
    • 20 April 2013.
  • Christian and Jewish people all love Allah. Almighty Allah entrusted them to us. And He entrusted us to them. That is because we are all friends of Allah. We will approach them all with love and compassion.
  • You should all embrace our non-Muslim brothers and sisters, Jewish or Christian. They are very much oppressed all over the world. When they go out in their traditional clothes they are mocked and cursed at. There are a lot of irreligious, atheistic people around. For that reason, show compassion and mercy everywhere you see them and embrace them.
    • 20 April 2013.
  • We should show compassion to Christians. They are very inoffensive, they are very dear. Very rarely, they have small churches here and there. There are people who make fun of them and some who attempt to batter them. They are striving to protect their beliefs in Allah and to express their love for Allah under very difficult conditions. You should be very compassionate towards them. Treat them with compassion and love. Our brothers and sisters should protect and watch over them everywhere.
    • 20 April 2013.
  • Let children love Allah, let them love the Qur’an. Let us protect them from the dissension of Darwinism, from the dissension of materialism, communism, from the dissension of godless and Bookless mentalities. With all our might, let us teach them the beauty of holy values and the beauty of the Qur’an. Let the hearts of those beautiful beings be filled with the love of Allah.
    • 20 April 2013.
  • A hero is awaited for 1400 years, and that is Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). And also the Prophet Jesus Messiah (pbuh).
    • 20 April 2013.
  • With Darwinist-materialist education communism advances and the people would be ruined. It is not enough to put religion classes in the schools. The state needs to stop Darwinist-materialist education.
    • 25 April 2013.
  • Mahdi (pbuh) is a person melted in the Existence of Allah. There is a state of mind in which a person would become a radiant light. In a sense he would lose his position as matter. He would appear to be matter but he would no longer be a matter.
    • 28 April 2013.
  • At the moment the world is restless. Only in the time of the system of the Mahdi all the streets will attain peace and tranquility.
    • 29 April 2013.
  • Turkey is a country that takes love as a basis and that refrains from hatred.
    • 21 April 2013.
  • Our government should consider the internet as the most crucial matter. There should be wireless access to the internet all over Turkey and all kinds of restrictions on the internet should be abolished. Everyone should be able to log on to internet whenever they like. Putting a restriction on internet is something like putting a lock on a book and saying ; “you cannot read!”
    • 23 April 2013.
  • It is very astonishing that man, being a mortal, can still develop feelings of haughtiness.
    • 23 April 2013.
  • We are not in the time of separation; we are in the time of unification. There will not be an Armageddon or anything. Wars have come to an end from now on. They should forget about wars.
    • 23 April 2013.
  • Let everyone live as ever they like, as ever they desire. There should be no interference on Internet, or on Facebook, on Skype. People’s religion or ideas should not be interfered. Let everyone be free. Religion would prosper very easily in such an environment.
    • 21 June 2013.
  • May God give a blessed Laylat Al-Bara’ah to the whole Islamic World. May God give all Muslims faith in the degree of Haqq al-yaqîn (the total reality of Certainty), may God give them all the faith of the Prophets. May the decision for the system of the Mahdi, for the Unity of Islam be given insha’Allah in this night.
    • 23 June 2013.
  • Those on the side of the Mahdi (pbuh) would always talk about stopping the bloodshed, about love, compassion, freedom, peace, science, arts and aesthetics.
    • 16 June 2013.
  • Muslims turn fire into light, wrath into mercy.
    • 16 June 2013.
  • Love is the purpose of creation of this world. Without love politics would not have a meaning. Life would not have a meaning either. God created the purpose of this world as love. God says; “Love Me and I will love you.” The whole system is based on that. Without love nothing has any meaning.
    • 20 June 2013.
  • It is not possible to procure religiousness through governments; that can only be made possible with the system of the Mahdi. The system, the spirit that would come about in religiousness is love. I mean the system of the Mahdi brings about a lot of love, compassion, mercy, understanding, tolerance, sweetness, broadness of perspective, arts and science, it would bring about social justice; none of which can be attained through impositions. In the system of the Mahdi there is no place for impositions.
    • 21 June 2013.
  • Freedom would bring about comfort and abundance. We should protect Jews, we should protect Christians and irreligious people as well. Let us create such a liberal, refreshing, beautiful environment. A very wealthy, sound understanding of religion would prevail in such an environment. Secularity is a system that exists in the essence of religion.
    • 21 June 2013.
  • A weary and exhausted understanding of religion is not acceptable. A Muslim should speak lively, fluently and sincerely. A Muslim would not feel the need for a heavy peroration.
    • 24 June 2013.
  • Arts have died in Europe, what we see now in the name of art are the pieces of those artists who are already dead. There is no living art. We, as Turkey, should start a lively, fresh understanding of art.
    • 23 June 2013.
  • 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.
    • 30 December 2013.
  • 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.
    • 30 December 2013.

2014[edit]

God commands Muslims to protect churches and synagogues, not to attack them.
  • 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.
    • 1 January 2014.
  • 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.
    • 1 January 2014.
  • 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.
    • 2 January 2014.
  • 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.
    • 2 January 2014.
  • 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.
    • 2 January 2014.
  • 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.
    • 3 January 2014.
  • 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.
    • 3 January 2014.
  • 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.
    • 4 January 2014.
  • 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. ** 4 January 2014.
  • All Mahdi movements serve the real Mahdi (pbuh) whether they like it or not.
    • 4 January 2014.
  • 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.
    • 4 January 2014.
  • 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.
    • 4 January 2014.
  • 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.
    • 4 January 2014.
  • 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.
    • 4 January 2014.
  • 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.
    • 4 January 2014.
  • 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.
    • 4 January 2014.
  • 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.
    • 4 January 2014.
  • 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.
