As people who believe in God and follow His revelations, let
us rally to a common formula - "faith". Let's love God, Who
is our Creator and Lord, and follow His commands. And let us
pray God to lead us to an even straighter path. When Muslims,
Christians and Jews rally to a common formula this way; when
they understand that they are friends not enemies, when they
see that the real enemy is atheism and paganism, then the world
will become a very different place.
The fighting that has raged for ages, enmities, fears - and
terrorist attacks - will come to an end, and a new civilization
based on love, respect and peace will be established upon this
Although the divine religions contain different rules in the
light of the climate and conditions in which they were revealed,
they essentially offer the same model of belief and morality.
They have all offered the same fundamental truths regarding
such matters as the existence, oneness and attributes of God,
how He should be served, the kind of behaviour He finds pleasing,
how one should live and behave, the concepts of good and bad,
right and wrong, how people should order their lives in this
world, and how one can obtain eternal life .
Divine books revealed before the Qur'an are the Torah and the
Gospels. The Bible's two basic parts, the Old and the New Testaments,
are based on the Torah and the Gospels relatively, contain sections
that agree with the Qur'an. Both the Old and New Testaments
favor love, peace and mercy, also prohibiting terror and
oppression. In this section, we'll consider how Jews and Christians
from all over the world must take action in light of these commands
to oppose terrorism.
It is a well-known fact that since the 1990s a number of commentators
have suggested that a clash between the West and Islam can be
expected in the near future. That is the main theme of Samuel
Huntington's thesis of the Clash of Civilisations. The truth
is that there can be no clash between Islamic and Western civilisation,
because the Judaeo-Christian belief that forms the basis of
Western civilisation is in harmony and alliance with Islam,
not in conflict with it.
Our hope is that all racist deviations will be abandoned, that
people will be able to live together in peace no matter what
their race or beliefs, and that a world in which there is respect
for everyone and in which everyone's rights will be observed
will be established. There is no question that the war on the
level of ideas to be waged together by believers against all
atheistic ideologies will bring about the peace and security
for which people have longed for so long. Allah issues the flowing
command in the Qur'an:
Those who are kafir are the friends and protectors of
one another. If you do not act in this way there will be
turmoil in the land and great corruption. (Surat al-Anfal:
It is most unfair to pass judgment on Islam and Muslims without
studying the Qur'an to learn whether a particular practice appears
in it. Examining the lifestyle of a single community only can
seriously mislead anyone who tries to understand Islam and form
opinions about it. First, what needs to be done is to learn
about Islam from its true source. Then, once the various models
in different parts of the world are considered in the light
of those criteria, many who only imagined they knew about Islam
will actually come to do so for the first time; and can free
themselves from the errors they have been laboring under so
Mr. Adnan Oktar's remarks on the incident of killing
Christians leaving the church in Egypt.
(From Adnan Oktar's live interview on January 9, 2010)
Say: 'Have iman in it or do not have iman in it.' Certainly, when it is recited to them, those who were given knowledge before it fall on their faces in prostration, saying, 'Glory be to our Lord! The promise of our Lord is truly fulfilled!'
Weeping, they fall to the ground in prostration, and it increases them in humility.
Say: 'Call on Allah or call on the All-Merciful, whichever you call upon, the Most Beautiful Names are His.' Do not be too loud in your salat or too quiet in it, but try to find a way between the two.
And say: 'Praise be to Allah Who has had no son and Who has no partner in His Kingdom and Who needs no one to protect Him from abasement.' And proclaim His Greatness repeatedly!
(Quran, Al-Isra, 107-111)
ADNAN OKTAR'S INTERVIEW WITH AKSAM NEWSPAPER
(April 23, 2008)
Adnan Oktar: I have always felt love and affection for Christians and Jews. One can go and dine with them, visit their homes and always enjoy close, friendly relations with those of them who are genuine, with sincere Christians and Jews.
Jesus will return to the world for a second
time. He will unite all believers in God and bring peace to
mankind, as proclaimed by the Prophet Mohammad and revealed
in the Qur'an. The Qur'an acquaints us with some events from
the life of Jesus (as) which have not yet happened. Thus,
his second coming to earth is a prerequisite for these events
to happen. Furthermore, the Prophet Mohammed and those great
figures of Islam who interpreted his words have given an account
of the signs that will precede the coming of Jesus and have
indicated a specific period of time for that coming. Nearly
all of the signs have come to pass. The indicated time period
is the first half of the 21st century in which we are now
