Al-Quran Al-Kareem – Tafsir (Exegesis) Lesson 175
I seek shelter in Allah from the rejected Satan. In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
They say they were born sinless, but they believe in the original sin, and they say you can be saved by believing in the trinity. Do you see? They say you can be saved by believing in the trinity, and the cross. They say it is not about reason, but divine decree. Then again, what they desire most is to break the influence of the popes. Yes, they did break the influence of the popes but they gave the same influence to themselves and others. Besides, each of the bibles are written by a person. Only the Gospel of John and The Saint John’s Bible are of the disciples (al-hawâriyyûn). The reports of their narration are not authentic, and others are completely unknown. Scholarly titles and deeds are lost. Besides, the Bibles in their hands are based on the First Council of Nicaea. And that is where everything went sideways. They could not protect and preserve the Bibles and the Torah as much as the hadith-i sharifs which are based on the proof of al-jarh (criticism), al-ta’dil (praise), takhrīj (interpretation), and tankih. The religion of Islam and Al-Quran Al-Karim have been fully preserved, and hadith-i sharifs have also been preserved completely. A Spanish doctor named Michel Serve was thrown into fire because she denied that the Messiah was a god, bear this in mind! The Spanish doctor Michel Serve who rejected that Isa (Jesus) Messiah was a god was burned in fire. We can see their perversion here as clear as the day. The aql (mind) that defends this perversion is not wise either. They are all based on teslis (trinity). See the 17th verse of Surah al-Maidah. Except the Arians. Besides, what did they do to the Arians? They already excommunicated the Arians, and abolished them. For the Arians believed in Allah’s oneness. They say, “Isa (Jesus) is Allah’s servant (qul), and Messenger.” They were excommunicated because they spoke the truth, and were destroyed.
Moreover, wahdat al-wujūd (unity of existence) had spread in Protestantism. In the 19th century, it became an official madhab (school) in Germany. Now, wahdat al-wujūd (unity of existence) is to consider the entire universe as a deity. Everything is a deity according to them; they are all one and they are all deities one by one. That is, according to them. Islam rejects wahdat al-wujūd (unity of existence). Allah is One. There are no other deities besides Allah. Whatever exists besides Allah is of Allah’s creation. That is why there is no share of divinity in anyone or anything other than Allah. Nothing is a deity whether partly or as a whole. There are no gods other than Allah. See, it is a believer (mu’min), muwahhid (unitarian believer), and a Muslim who understand this, and he has tawhid iman (monotheism).
Janâb-i Haqq said the following to the entire Christian world.
The hodja is reciting the original text of the saying.
Says, “Do not say Allah is a trinity.” See, Almighty Allah informs of all truths. If you don’t believe, then it’s your decision. If you believe, it will be to your own benefit, and you will be saved. It is up to everyone’s free-will to believe or disbelieve. Those who know should speak the truths, and we need to save people from the wrongs.
Now, in the 73rd verse of Surah al-Maidah, the disbelievers (kāfir) say, “Allah is the third of the trinity.”
Time Stamp: 5:00
As you see, Al-Quran Al-Karim says that those who have that belief are disbelievers (kāfir). It is the greatest disbelief (kufr) to say Allah is the Messiah. It is being a kāfir. See, the 17th verse. Al-Quran Al-Karim says this truth here, but why? This is said so that everyone may be saved from polytheism (shirk), corruption (nifaq), disbelief (kufr), and believe in Allah correctly with tawhid iman (monotheism). Islamic belief is the right and real belief, and wahdat al-wujūd (unity of existence) is disbelief (kufr), and wrong (batil). “Absolute influence (tasarruf), and sovereignty is of Allah unconditionally. The sovereignty over the creatures belong only to Allah.” Let us pay attention to this! “The sovereignty over the creatures belong only to Allah.” And they swear to Allah and the Messiah. They are either aware or not, but that is up to them. They want to divinize their cleric fathers. See, they even want to divinize their cleric fathers.
“Abaiyye Yesuiyye,” they propound doubts and fabrications.
You shall embrace Islam in order to attain Allah’s pleasure (riza) and eternal bounties, and the ultimate meeting (wuslat). See, the means to reach the ultimate union (wuslat) are Al-Quran Al-Karim, Prophet Muhammad, and Islam itself; these are the means. The creatures and their abilities are of Allah’s work, and they are creations, not fragments. The works are considered documents. And wahdat al-wujūd (unity of existence) is disbelief (kufr). Illat al-kull, muhit al-kull and the ability to encompass everything belongs to the divine omnipotence (qudrah). It is Allah who created the reason for everything. Allah created the reasons just like Allah created everything. Stem fields focus on causation, baqa al-illat and the law of the baqa of illat at first. This is what stem fields bring forth. Now, when you pay close attention here, it is clear that it is Allah who created the essence of everything. It is Allah who created the reasons and causes. That is, the original creator is Allah, and then, it is Allah who created the causes, and it is Allah who makes the laws. It is Janâb-i Haqq who gives abilities and skills to people and the creatures, and Allah’s laws are in effect. The bad habits of the Jews are remnants of the ill temper of Cain. See, as you know Cain had killed his brother Abel. What did the Jews do? They killed the Prophets, and killed many great scholars (âlims). The treason of the Tribe of Uraina, they stole the camels and killed the shepherds. They got caught, and divine justice was implemented on them. Of course, the guilty must be punished, and if the punishment is not severe enough, then it would promote the crime, and justice will not be fulfilled. Then again, Cain was an agriculturist, and Abel had sheep. Cain sacrificed his weakest crop. That is, Cain could not have the heart to sacrifice the good crop to Allah. As for Abel, he sacrificed the best ram, for he obeyed Allah. Abel’s sacrifice was accepted, and the other was not. A fire that came from the heavens marked the one that is accepted.
Time Stamp: 10:00
It was pointing to that one by burning it. This is the statement of the mufassirs. Abū Ḥayyān says, “Abel believed in the decree (taqdir) and provision (hukm).” And that is a report Abū Ḥayyān brought forth. Ibn-i Abbas says, “Had he felt regret that he killed him…” Now, this is a report that comes from Ibn-i Abbas and al-Qurtubi also says the same thing. “Had he felt regret, it would be repentance. Such a shame he did not even think of regret.” See, the real regret was to go back to faith (iman).
Also says, “He felt regret he did not know how to bury.” This is a report that comes from Ibn-i Abbas, and it is also present in the work of al-Qurtubi. Another report that comes from Ibn-i Abbas says the following. Radeyallahu anhum wa ardahum ajmain.
“The Jews had said to our Prophet (asw): ‘We are Allah’s children and Allah’s beloved ones.’.”
The hodja is reciting the original text of the above quote.
You see, the Jews had said the same thing as well. As for the Christians, they imply that the Jews were connected to Uzair (a.s.), and the Christians claim they have initiation to the Messiah whom they call Allah’s son, and it is seen that they want to consider themselves “the grandchildren,” and this report comes from Ibn-i Abbas.
Now, who is Ibn-i Abbas? He is one of the greatest Islamic scholars (âlim) of the companions (sahabah). Radeyallahu anhum wa ardahum ajmain.
In Hebrew, they used “baba-eb” instead of “rauf, rahim,” and then they used it for evil. There are also people who say it is a metaphor of honour, and connexion. They unite Isa (Jesus) with Allah, and unite themselves with Isa (Jesus). Who? That is the Protestants, and the others. It is polytheism (shirk) and disbelief (kufr) to divinize a man who was created from nothing without a father or a mother, from a drop of water, from earth, first man and then woman, as naked.
The explanation continues. In the verses, the word gap or fatrat was mentioned. It means gap, or a break. That is, the times that passes between the coming of two Prophets.
“O, the Jews and the Christians!” The Last Prophet is the prayer (dua) of Ibrahim (Abraham), and the news brought by Musa (Moses), and the glad tiding of Isa (Jesus); you can’t say that the real (haqq) soul, the glorious universal Prophet Muhammad did not come.” Al-Quran Al-Karim will continue to shout out the truth, and continues to challenge everyone. It says the truth (haqq). It shall last forever; it will always shout out what is right and real. See, Prophet Muhammad and Al-Quran Al-Karim are the best and greatest bearers of good news. Islam is a right (haqq) religion. It is the reality (haqiqa) whether some accept it or not.

Al-Quran Al-Kareem – Tafsir (Exegesis) Lesson 176
On the 20th to 31st verses of Surah al-Maidah .
I seek shelter in Allah from the rejected Satan. In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
The hodja is reciting the 20th, 21st, 22nd, and 23rd verses of Surah al-Maidah .
Dearest and most valuable audience!
We try to clarify the sacred verses of the life-giving Holy Book of our Almighty Rabb to you so that we may find life, be happy forever, live what is right and real, and be saved from all wrongs. This is why we have to explain the almighty truth that Almighty Allah brought forth to each other.
“When Musa (Moses) said to his people, ‘O, my people! Remember Allah’s blessing upon you, when Allah appointed Prophets among you, and made you kings, and gave you what no other people were given.”
“O, my people! Enter the Holy Land which Allah prescribed for you, and do not turn back, or you will be losers.”
“They said, ‘O, Musa (Moses)! There is a tyrannical people there. We will never enter it unless they leave it.”
You see, his people objected to him, they said, “Once they leave it, we will surely enter it.”
“Two men, who were given a bounty by Allah, and who feared Allah said,” Now these two are revered figures who obeyed Musa (Moses), ‘Go at them by the gate, if you enter by the gate then you will surely prevail. If you truly believe, then believe only in Allah and put your trust in Allah,’.” they said.
The hodja is reciting the 24th verse of Surah al-Maidah .
Do you see how those who object to Musa (Moses) act? Shamelessly and carelessly… “His people said to Musa (Moses): ‘O, Musa (Moses)! We will never enter it as long as they are there. Go ahead, you and your Rabb and fight. We will be sitting right here,” they said. This is a careless rebellion against Allah and the Messenger.
My dearest friends, Musa (a.s.) said the following to them.
Time Stamp: 5:00
The hodja is reciting the 25th verse of Surah al-Maidah .
Musa (a.s.) said, “O, my Rabb!” He was beseeching to Allah. “I do not have any power over anyone except myself and my brother. So, make a separation between us and these fāsiq people.”
See, think about what will happen to those people once a Prophet says something like this.
Let us see what Janâb-i Haqq said.
The hodja is reciting the 26th verse of Surah al-Maidah .
Allah Ta’ala (c.c.) said this to Musa (a.s.), “The sacred place has been made haram for them for forty years.” Do you see how Allah punishes the Musa’s people? That is due to their objection to Musa (Moses). Said, “The sacred place has been made haram for them for forty years,” and Allah forbade them the sacred place. Said, “They shall wonder about in the earth.” See, Allah said that misery has begun for those people, and said, “Do not grieve for those fāsiq people.” See, what did Janâb-i Haqq say? Janâb-i Haqq said, عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْفَاسِقِينَ do not grieve for that transgressing lot.
Our dearest friends! Woe to those who object to Janâb-i Haqq and the Messengers. Think about what will happen to them for a second… So many things have happened to that lot…
Now, after explaining you the following verses of the Quran, we will try to convey to you their discovery notes, exegetical notes, notes on narrations (riwayat) and their comprehension (dirayat). We will try to convey certain explanatory notes to you.
Let us see what Janâb-i Haqq says.
The hodja is reciting the 27th, 28th, 29th, 30th, and 31st verses of Surah al-Maidah .
Janâb-i Haqq said, “Truly recite to them the news about two sons of Adam.” “When both of them offered a sacrifice,” who are they? They are Adam’s (a.s.) two sons, Cain and Abel. They had sacrificed two things, one each. “It was accepted from one of them, and was not accepted from the other. The latter said to the former: ‘I will kill you.’.” Now, pay attention! These are the people who use their logic in reverse who lead misguidance (dalalah) and deviancy.
Time Stamp: 10:05
See, Allah does not accept his sacrifice, and he tries to kill his brother because his sacrifice was not accepted, but he does not see himself guilty. The tyrannical nations are always like this, tyrannical people, communities, and deviants are always like this. They don’t see any guilt in themselves, they don’t see their disbelief (kufr), and blames the faithful. They don’t see their cruelty, but blame the one who is just. They don’t see their polytheism (shirk), but blame those who have tawhid iman (monotheism).
You see, friends! Janâb-i Haqq presents humanity the just and obedient mindset to people rather than this tyrannical mindset. The possessor of the vile mindset says, “I will kill you,” to his brother. As for the other one, he says, “Allah only accepts those who fear only Allah, meaning the pious (al-muttaqi). You should obey Allah as well, so that yours may be accepted too.” You see the good words Abel said to his brother.
You see, Al-Quran Al-Karim reveals these. Almighty Allah reveals these. What does the Quran do with the documents of the past? Well, Al-Quran Al-Karim is the witness of the past.
“I swear by Allah, even if you extend your hand toward me to kill me, I will not extend my hand to kill you,” said Abel. He said, “Indeed, I fear Allah, Rabb of all the worlds.”
What did he say to him? He said, “My brother! Fear Allah, and let us not shed each other’s blood. I will not do this even if you do.”
Now, this is important.
When you do it, “I desire that you bear the burden of my sins and your sins and become one of the inmates of fire.” He desired that he would become fully deserving of Jahannam (Hell). “And such is the requital of the wrongdoers (zalimun),” he said. So, after that, what did the soul (nafs) of the one whose sacrifice was not accepted do? It prompted him to kill his brother. This is his own soul (nafs), bear this in mind!
O, humanity! Evaluate what you feel inside, and see if they are right or wrong. Check-up your inner world, evaluate it, and see the rights and wrongs.
“And he killed him,” says the verse, “and thus became one of the losers.” He became one of those who are frustrated.
“Then, Allah sent a crow. It was scratching the earth to show him how to bury the body of his brother. He said, ‘Woe to me! Am I unable to be like that crow and bury my brother’s corpse? Thus, he became one of the regretful.”
See, a murder was committed for the first time. Their father was Prophet Adam. The one who objected to his command was put against the mindset that objected to Musa (Moses). Allah revealed that mindset and this mindset so that mankind may derive a lesson from the situation of those who use their aql (intellect) for evil.
You see, what happens to that mindset when a person abandons Islam, the Quran, and Prophet Muhammad and deviates to other ways in today’s world’s logic? Where do they use their aql (intellect) and qualities? Why do they use them? Are they using them for the pleasure (riza) of Allah, the command of the divine, divine justice, mercy, and rahmat? Or are they doing the opposite of that?
See, Al-Quran Al-Karim will continue to give its life-giving lessons to humanity until the Last Day. Nobody can find life without studying the life lessons of Al-Quran Al-Karim, nor can they live a happy life. Al-Quran Al-Karim gives life. That said, Janâb-i Haqq filled Islam to the brim with all remedies for happiness and finding life.

Al-Quran Al-Kareem – Tafsir (Exegesis) Lesson 177
On the 32nd verses of Surah al-Maidah .
I seek shelter in Allah from the rejected Satan. In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
Janâb-i Haqq says:
The hodja is reciting the 32nd verse of Surah al-Maidah .
Let us see what is said to Bani Isra’il who objected to Musa (a.s.), whose logic wanted to kill Isa (Jesus), they wanted to crucify him. You see, they murdered Zechariah and Yahyā (John). They wanted to kill Muhammad (asw). They denied the Quran and the Prophethood of Prophet Muhammad. The same mindset still continues to exist, bear this in mind! Janâb-i Haqq says: “مِنْ أَجْلِ ذَلِكَ”.
“This is why we ordained to Children of Israel that he who kills a soul (nafs) that is not guilty of taking a life or causing corruption, is as though he had killed all mankind.”
You see, this was written in the Torah and the Bible. And this is the verse in the Quran that I have just recited. This is what the 32nd verse of Surah al-Maidah says. Islam came to give life. All Prophets have been commissioned in the same case, and they have performed their duties in the settings they were in. Those who fulfilled their duties handed over the duty to another Prophet. See, it is Allah who assigns the Prophets. In the last, Prophet Muhammad renewed the past.
Now, let us see what is said: “Whoever causes a soul (nafs) to live,” meaning whoever saves a life, “is as though he had saved all mankind.” He is as though he had saved the lives of entire humanity. Says, “We have prescribed it, and made it fard (obligatory) for things to be like this.”
“Our Messengers certainly brought them manifest proofs,” and the last of them is Prophet Muhammad (asw). That is, Prophet Muhammad (asw) who was sent as a universal and last messenger to all the worlds, all nations, and all eras.
“Yet even after that many of them in the earth have been committing excesses,” they continue to shed blood and commit murders, said Janâb-i Haqq. This is a backward mindset that does not derive lessons from the past, a murderous mindset. This is the mindset that killed Zechariah and Yahyā (John) in the past. This is the mindset that wanted to crucify Isa (Jesus). Alaihissalam. This is the mindset that wanted to kill Prophet Muhammad, and who denied him. This mindset still continues to shed blood. Do you see the blood that is being shed in Palestine? They have been shedding blood every day with that mindset. This mindset is that of violent murderers who murder Prophets. Whoever does this is guilty, no matter who they are.
Janâb-i Haqq clearly explains that killing a person unjustly is like killing all of mankind, and saving a life is as though saving the lives of all people. Al-Quran Al-Karim explains this, and so did the other Prophets in the past, and Holy Books. Such a pity that those who do not follow the way of the Prophets and the Holy Books fell into misguidance… Those who consider themselves on the way of Musa (Moses), Isa (Jesus), or Muhammad should realize how wrong they are. They should renounce these wrongs. They will never find peace for themselves in the world, in the grave, or in the afterlife (mahshar) unless they renounce these wrongs. They will not be able to be saved from Allah’s wrath and severe punishment.
Time Stamp: 5:15
Otherwise, they will continue to harm other people. See, the religion of Islam came to save the entire mankind from the harm’s way. This is why Prophet Muhammad came as a Prophet of Mercy. That said, Al-Quran Al-Karim and the religion of Islam was manifested from his bosom. This is how the laws and commands of Almighty Allah was manifested. These divine commands completely belong to Allah. This is a divine order that was created when Almighty Allah assigned Prophet Muhammad. This is the source of happiness. Do you want to find life and be happy? Then the source of life is Al-Quran Al-Karim, the religion of Islam, and Prophet Muhammad. The origins of all of these belong to Almighty Allah. That is, they are of divine origin.

Al-Quran Al-Kareem – Tafsir (Exegesis) Lesson 178
On the 33rd and 34th verses of Surah al-Maidah .
The hodja is reciting the 33rd and 34th verses of Surah al-Maidah .
“Those who wage war against Allah (c.c.) and the Messenger,” pay attention! “The requital of those who wage war against Allah and the Messenger, and try to cause corruption on earth, is that they will be killed or hanged, or have their hands and feet cut diagonally, or be banished to somewhere else on earth. That is a disgrace for them in the world, and in the afterlife, there is a great punishment for them.” “Except those who repent before you capture them, know that Allah is Most-Forgiving, Most-Merciful.”
Friends, we can see two main points here besides many hidden causes (hikmat). One is that Islam removes all the mischief makers who harm humanity, and does what is necessary for the comfort, safety, and peace of all humanity, and ensures the justice. Islam tries to ensure safety in the world. The second point is for the betterment of people. A method of betterment is implemented here in order to improve people. The religion of Islam is a reformist religion, and it also implements the required divine justice to those who can’t be disciplined.
This is like when microbes infest a giant body. There won’t be peace and tranquillity in any part of that body unless it is saved from microbes. Just like that, when you remove those who harm people, those who disrupt safety, peace, right and reality in the world and try to make disbelief (kufr) predominant – Janâb-i Haqq gave the command against those tyrants, and said, “Implement the divine justice.” Unless humanity implements this life-giving divine justice, neither they can be saved from this misconception nor will they have fulfilled their duty to humanity. It seems like this is the greatest flaw of the world right now. The world does not implement divine justice, and what happens because they don’t? Well, the world is in trouble right now. There is turmoil in every corner of the world, and they have been shedding blood. Divine justice is not being fulfilled. Justice is not ensured. The balances are yet to be stabilized. The hearts and souls have been neglected. Justice has been neglected. The love that Allah Ta’ala gave us, the innate love… Islam turns you into a sea or ocean of love, but instead of Islam’s understanding of love, people have chosen fabricated and false types of love. Nobody could find the love they were looking for. However, those who live the real faith (haqq iman) and reality (haqiqa) have been tasting its bliss. Yet there is a situation that threatens them as well.
Time Stamp: 5:00
There is all this tyranny (zulm) in the world. There are agonies of all those innocent and oppressed people in the world. This troubles every person who has a conscience. You see, they have turned the world into an agony house, and human butchers are operating on the streets. People are being killed in masses. What kind of a conscience, justice, or mercy can allow this to happen? Would it be like this if divine justice was implemented? Would it be like this had they present what is right and real to humanity? You live in the kingdom (mulk) of Allah, but you don’t like the laws of Allah. You say what you did was good, but what did you do? You have been pumping wealth to one side and leave the other side hungry. You have been feeding one side and killing the other side in masses, and then you say what you say is right. Your eyes cannot see the truth by no means. This is why you should take a glance at the world’s situation today, such a pity. You are ruining yourself, and the entire humanity. We can see the following points in the verses of the Quran, let me give certain explanatory notes. Children and grandchildren of Ya’qub (Jacop), and the next generations of Ya’qub (a.s.), Musa (a.s.), Harun (Aaron), Joshua (a.s.); 70 people whom Musa (a.s.) chose, and other prophets such as Dawood (David) and Suleiman (a.s.), and others. They killed Yahya (John) and Zachariah, and tried to crucify Isa (Jesus), but what was their situation before that? Well, the situation of Bani Isra’il was not bad at all until then. They had more or less political and personal freedoms. It was all good in times when they obeyed. They had experienced downfalls as they disobeyed. However, after they killed Yahya (John) and Zachariah, and tried to crucify Isa (Jesus) it all changed completely. Pay attention to these now! Let us see what the mufassirin say Janâb-i Haqq did to them. Then, when they started objecting to Musa (Moses), Janâb-i Haqq forbade them the Holy Land (al-Ard al-Muqaddasah). Some mufassirin say it is absolute that it was made haram, and they will never be able to enter it. Then again, for a generation to be able to enter it, what should happen? Well, they need to become salih (pious). They need to become salih (pious) Muslims in order to enter the Holy Land (al-Ard al-Muqaddasah). That said, the inheritors of the world are saleh (pious) servants (qul) of Allah. This is why they received the baddua of Janâb-i Haqq since the day they objected to Isa (Jesus) and Musa (Moses). Who did? That is, Bani Isra’il. Janâb-i Haqq forbade them from entering the Holy Land (al-Ard al-Muqaddasah). And today the situation is obvious, they are shedding people’s blood. They have been shedding blood in a part of the Holy Land (al-Ard al-Muqaddasah). They are still shedding blood. Now, in the 12th verse of Surah al-Maidah , Janâb-i Haqq said, “If you maintain the namāz (prayer), give the zakat (poor-dues), lend a loan,” that is lend a loan as a good deed, “believe in the Prophets and support them, then I am with you.”
Time Stamp: 10:15
Yet they did the opposite of that. Can a person who maintains namāz (prayer), gives zakat (poor-dues), and supports the Prophets do these to the Prophets? Would he murder the Prophets? They murdered the Prophets instead of believing in them and helping them. Had they obeyed Janâb-i Haqq… What did Janâb-i Haqq say to them back then? “I am with you,” said Janâb-i Haqq but they did the opposite of what is said.
O, Muslims! O, humanity! Why does Al-Quran Al-Karim say these? Says, “Obey Allah and be saved.” Be good Muslims, become salih (pious) Muslims in the least. Be among the salih (pious) people. Be on the side of peace and tranquillity. Be on the side of what is right (haqq) and real (haqiqa). Unite the faiths (iman), and stand against evil altogether. Establish the predominance of the truth so that you and all humanity may find comfort and peace. Let peace and tranquillity settle on earth. Al-Quran Al-Karim does not narrate these to you for fun. “O, humanity! Get your head straight,” it says! Let all Muslims, mothers, fathers, and children listen to Allah and the Prophet in their homes. If they listen and understand Al-Quran Al-Karim well, then they will have obtained their lessons from Allah. If they hold fast to the sunnah (customs), they would have listened and followed the Prophet. Otherwise, it will be a pity.
Then again, it is said that the bounty being given, and the Holy Land (al-Ard al-Muqaddasah) being given to them as homeland are of that time. This is again, a view of our scholars and mufassirin on the 13th verse of Surah al-Maidah . That said, they had lost their qualities in the end. Why? Because they did the opposite of the word that they gave to Allah Ta’ala. They did not keep their word. They had lost their qualities. There are certain prerequisites of entering the Holy Land (al-Ard al-Muqaddasah). In the very least, they need to be a salih (pious), and they became transgressors (zalim), did the opposite. Let us see what Janâb-i Haqq clearly states in the 105th verse of Surah al-Anbiya : “The righteous (salih) servants (qul) shall inherit the earth.” You have to be a righteous (salih) person in order to inherit the earth, and the Holy Land (al-Ard al-Muqaddasah), you need to be a Muslim. All Prophets are Muslims. Isa is a Muslim. Musa is a Muslim. Nuh (Noah) and Ibrahim (Abraham) are Muslims. And you say you are in the way of the Prophets by rejecting Islam. You say you are in the way of a Prophet, but you disbelieve in the other Prophets. You reject them and deny them. You say you believe in one book, but you deny the other books of Allah. As for Islam and Al-Quran Al-Karim, they are witnesses of the past and bears the documents of the past. All the values of the past are in it. Al-Quran Al-Karim, Allah Ta’ala, and Prophet Muhammad are the witnesses of the past. That said, all the documents of the future are in Al-Quran Al-Karim, the religion of Islam, and Prophet Muhammad. And it is Allah who personally brought this forth. Had Allah not informed us of these with Al-Quran Al-Karim, then how could we know about the doings of Bani Isra’il and other people, such as the people of Nuh (Noah), people of Hud, Salih, Shuʿayb, Ibrahim, the Nimrod who had opposed them, and the Pharaohs who stood against Musa (Moses)?
Time Stamp: 15:10
Al-Quran Al-Karim narrates us the gathering (mahshar), Jannah (Paradise), and Jahannam (Hell), and talks about the ninth heaven (arsh-i âlâ), world of grave, and word of barzakh. Al-Quran narrates the past as clear as the day. It holds the documents of the past and witnesses it, and brings forth the documents of the future. That is why you can neither know the past correctly nor have a document regarding the future denying Al-Quran Al-Karim; you can’t have any of that because the witness of whether what is told about the past is true or not is Al-Quran Al-Karim. See, it is Al-Quran Al-Karim that does not let anyone speak ill about Musa (Moses). it is Al-Quran Al-Karim that does not let anyone speak ill about Isa (Jesus). The real Musa (Moses), the real Isa (Jesus), the real Bible, the real Psalms, the real Torah, and the real Scriptures are all in Al-Quran Al-Karim. Al-Quran Al-Karim is the witness and document of the past. Do you think you believe in Musa (Moses) correctly by denying the Quran? Is it really possible to understand Isa (Jesus) correctly by denying the Quran? I say this because the documents you have are all distorted and not well-preserved. That is why Allah has renewed the past entirely with Islam and Al-quran Al-Karim.
Some people procure unearned income. They become the president of the wrongs, and what do they do there? They live in their ivory towers with the people whom they deceive around them. They are with the people whom they deceived. “Don’t be fooled by them,” says Al-Quran Al-Karim, “give the game away.” These are mindsets that snatch away people’s peace in the world for their personal peace. Their eyes are blind, and oblivious to the reality (haqiqa). That is why Al-Quran Al-Karim is the way of seeing the truth is knowing Al-Quran Al-Karim and discovering Prophet Muhammad. If we need to summarize, one has to know Islam correctly. The Holy Land (al-Ard al-Muqaddasah) is where Bayt al-Maqdis is, Arz al-Mawud, the time and place of promise (mawaid), Mount Sinai and surrounding area, and the places that can be seen when you look from the Mount Lebanon. It is said that Ibrahim (a.s.) looked from the mountain and saw the lands. And these are narrations and views. Now, al-Tabari says that it includes the following places. The land between Egypt and Euphrates. Al-ʻArīsh in Egypt, meaning Euphrates and Egypt. Damascus, Jerusalem, Palestine, and a part of Jordan according to some. Some say it is the land of Damascus. These are one by one, different views.
It was like as if they said, “If the camel jumps from the eye of the needly, and the fish climb up the three, then we will come and fight those people.” See, they had objected to Musa (Moses), and did not want to come to the Holy Land (al-Ard al-Muqaddasah). They did not want to fight with the tyrannical people, rather they objected to Musa (Moses) and Allah. In the end, Allah gave them the punishment they deserved, and it still continues. If only they could derive a lesson, and nobody would have gotten a bloody nose.
The envoys had run into each other… Now, this is symbolic news. The envoys were on their way to the tyrannical lot in order to observe them and collect information. This is why envoys were sent there. Now, they had encountered a person. Had gathered all with the fruit and threw it before the King. The King said, “Go and narrate what you have seen.”
Time Stamp: 20:08
The envoys had encountered Uc ibn Unuk. He was as tall as 3333 yards, and he was living for 3000 years. He had a bundle of wood on his head. This is also an imaginative parable (qissa). A truth is being narrated here, but this is how it was represented, and an illustration is made. He placed them among the wood, and took them to his wife. He threw them in front of her and said, “They want to fight with us, should I crush them?” and she said, “Let them go and inform them about the situation.” They were hardly able to carry one bunch of grapes with four or five people. One bunch of graves were as heavy as one man. They were instructed to say this only to Musa (Moses) and Harun (Aaron),” but except for two, all of them had spread this secret. They frightened the folk from fighting. The encampment of Musa (Moses) was about three miles or five kilometres far away from that lot. Uc came, and looked, and went away. He sculpted a wide rock that could lay pressure on the army, and carried it on his back. And on the way back hüthüt had made a hole in the middle of the rock. He had put the rock on his neck, staggered, and collapsed. Musa (a.s.) jumped, and struck him with his rod, and the soldiers came and beheaded him. The height of Musa (Moses) was ten yards, and his rod’s length was ten yards, and he had jumped as high as ten yards, and he could only reach his ankle. He had hit him, and killed him. See, at that time this tyrannical lot was residing in the Holy Land (al-Ard al-Muqaddasah). They wanted to narrate its collapse in a representative manner with a story.
This represents the state of the government, the flaws, and the corruption in its head. Hüthüt was given as a representation of divine influence (tasarruf), that it was shaking from inside, and it collapsed due to a domestic revolution. This is a legend.
Abandon the legends, fantasies, and dreams. Rather, hold fast to the ayat (signs/verses). O, Muslim! These are legends one by one, and you should abandon legends, misgivings, dreams, and hold fast to the ayat (signs/verses), the book, the Quran!
What does Janâb-i Haqq say?
The hodja is reciting the 7th verse of Surah Ali Imran .
“There are muhkam (clear) verses in it, which are the mother of the book, its essence, its mother.” Don’t you ever be stuck in the mutashabih (metaphorical) verses! Don’t you ever be stuck in legends, misgivings, or dreams! The essence of the book is the muhkam (clear) verses, hold fast to them! Janâb-i Haqq may give a fly as an example, and those who believe will derive their lesson, as for the deniers (munkir) they will advance in disbelief (kufr) and don’t derive any lessons. The frustration of the wrongdoer (zalim) will increase, and they can’t find a cure. This is why you should get your head straight. Understand and comprehend Al-Quran Al-Karim and Islam well, and hold fast to muhkam (clear) verses. We have faqihs (experts of fiqh), mufassirin, and muhaddiths who have understood Al-Quran Al-Karim perfectly. We have real and grand Islamic scholars (âlim).
Time Stamp: 25:00
What should you do with them? Well, you should abide by those who know. Live the truth (haqq) and reality (haqiqa), find life and be happy.
Now, two of the envoys had said, “The tyrants are not what they seem.” You see, the other envoys who had gone to observe the place were scaring people from fighting. And what does two of those envoys say? This is very important actually. Two of them say, “The tyrants are not what they seem.”
See, when Bani Isra’il did not obey Musa (Moses), they were left outside for forty years. They had lived in the Desert of et-Tih for forty years. Those who died there could never enter the Holy Land (al-Ard al-Muqaddasah), and they will never enter it. Now, Desert of et-Tih as you know, means to be baffled, to be amazed. The word, “Tih” means to baffle, and to be amazed, it is also the name of the desert. It comes from “taha yetihi.” The entrance to the land of Damascus had started with Musa (a.s.), and it continued with his trustee, and his sister’s son, Joshua ibn Nun. In the Desert of et-Tih first Harun (Aaron) and after a year Musa (a.s.) had passed away. This is the general opinion. Dearest friends! When you see the 57th and 60th verses of Surah al-Baqarah, you will see these exemplary scenes. May Janâb-i Haqq make us servants (qul) whose faiths (iman) are perfect and lasting, who are happy in both worlds, who live under the protection of Almighty Allah.

– The End –
Al-Quran Al-Kareem – Tafsir (Exegesis) Lesson 179
On the 35th to 40th verses of Surah al-Maidah .
The hodja is reciting the 35th, 36th, and 37th verses of Surah al-Maidah .
“O, you who believe! Fear Allah, and seek for ways of recourse to Allah,” look for means,” and do jihād in Allah’s way, so that you may find salvation.”
You should always try to be on Allah’s way because we are Allah’s servants (qul). That said, we should always try to race in that which is good and true.
“Indeed, had all that is on earth and as much of it belonged to the deniers, and they tried to redeem themselves with it from the punishment on the Last Day, it would still not be accepted from them.”
This means, there is no remedy. Don’t postpone the work to the gathering (mahshar). Don’t postpone it to when Azrail (a.s.) will come. Don’t postpone it to the grave, or the afterlife. Right now, when you have the chance… You take one breath; you may not have the chance to take another. It is not clear whether you can or can’t take a second breath. Adopt faith (iman) right now, and become a Muslim. Otherwise, it will be a pity. Live with faith (iman) and Islam, and enter into the presence of Allah that way. What does Al-Quran Al-Karim say to you for that? “It will not be accepted from you even if you had many worlds like this one in your possession and you gave them to save yourself.”
“And there is a painful punishment for them.”
The requital of disbelief (kufr) is punishment, not Jannah (Paradise). The reward of faith (iman) and good deeds (amal-e-saleh) is Jannah (Paradise). Don’t you ever live with disbelief (kufr), or with polytheism (shirk). Don’t you ever die with disbelief (kufr), polytheism (shirk), or corruption (nifaq). Don’t you ever cheat anyone of their rights. Don’t be cruel.
“They would long leave the Fire of Jahannam, but it is not like they are going to leave it, they can’t leave it forever. There is a lasting punishment for them.”
See, Al-Quran Al-Karim speaks these truths. Whatever Allah said in the Quran – Allah said the truth.
The hodja is reciting the 38th and 39th verses of Surah al-Maidah .
“As for the male or female thief, punish them as a recompense for what they did as a punishment from Allah.” That is, at first educate them and give their social rights and remedies first, and if they still go and steal people’s things or lives, and if they continue their thievery and banditry, then cut off their hands as punishment. Whoever repents and straightens himself after the cruelty he committed, indeed, Allah will accept his repentance. Allah is forgiving, merciful.
The religion of Islam alleviates all the causes that lead one to thievery beforehand.
Time Stamp: 5:03
It gives what everybody deserves. It implements social justice, and does not let anyone devour anyone’s rights. It educates, teaches, reads, and settles social justice in people from the cradle to the grave. It implements the laws of divine justice, and does not let anyone devour anyone else’s rights, gives everyone their rights, and protects them. There are inviolable rights here. If you still keep doing thievery even though there is all this, and if you continue murdering people despite these, then the justice of Islam will deal with you, bear this in mind! However, what does Islam do first? It establishes social justice, and ensures it.
Time Stamp: 6:05
Al-Quran Al-Kareem – Tafsir (Exegesis) Lesson 180
On the 40th to 48st verses of Surah al-Maidah .
My friend, you should know this about Islam first. Do you know about the grand thieves, who devour mankind’s right, bleed them dry, and exploit them? Islam starts the work with those grand thieves. For they don’t want to give people their rights, but continue to exploit them. They continue to suck mankind’s blood. They continue to shed people’s blood. You see, the religion of Islam overcomes these grand thieves and these murderers. Otherwise, if those who siphon off the banks live in luxury and nobody asks them anything while the poor child who steals some bagels is punished, then this is because there is no justice. Would it be like this had the justice manifested? They punish the poor fellow who stole some bagels, deprive him of education, an take every right he has with regards to the social state, and don’t let him benefit from his social rights, leave him hungry, and go punish him and cut his arm off because he stole some bagels. There is no such understanding in Islam.
The others siphon off the banks, and consume the rights of the entire humanity, exploit all the means of the state, and you don’t raise your voice against them. Do you know what those vampires who collectively exploit the world do? They all exploit the world together; this is why nobody can overcome them. The grand thieves can’t be punished, and people can’t overcome those violent murderers. Why? Because they exploit the world together, they procure income, and they all live under each other’s rule.
You see, this is where the religion of Islam starts the work. You know those grand thieves, grand vampires, those who bleed people dry. The justice of Islam starts with them. If a poor fellow stole some bagels and he was left hungry, then who left him hungry? Islam will bring those who leave him hungry to the account, and say, “Why didn’t you give his share?” “You have exploited all means of the state, and devoured it all; where is the share of this poor man?” This is what Islam will ponder, for Islam is divine and there can’t be mistakes in Allah’s justice. If those who implement it are making mistakes, then it belongs to those people themselves, but Islam can’t have wrongs. Get your mind together! O, humanity! Can there be mistakes of Allah? Never! Never in ever! Islam is the order Allah established. Al-Quran Al-Karim is Allah’s Book. It is the witness of the past, which renewed the past, and it is brand-new, fresh, and divine order. It is a religion that says, “read” from the cradle to the grave. A book whose first verse revealed as “read” will destroy ignorance. It will make knowledge (ilm), wisdom (irfan), and science predominant. It will destroy tyranny (zulm), and make justice predominant. It will destroy the microbes, and ensures health. Health and happiness…
See, some people look for civilization in nudity, and some hide behind something and thinks Islam is there.
He thinks that it is it. It is not like that, look at the divine measure, they are both doing wrong. What is it? Well, Islam brought forth whatever is necessary for a person inside and outside, whatever there is to his benefit. Science, science science… Fill the souls and hearts with knowledge (ilm) and wisdom (irfan), the rest is easy. At first, abolish ignorance, the rest is easy. Implement the divine justice, the rest is easy. You rather sustain the microbes and shout out saying why can’t you be happy. You give right of life to the microbes, and you ruin the people who is attacked by those microbes, everything is for people. You give life to the microbes right of life, and life is for mankind, everything is for mankind. You produce the microbes that ruin mankind, and build a barrier before the values that exalt and advance mankind.
Time Stamp: 5:30
It is Allah who created man and his innate nature (fitrah) and prescribed Islam for his advancement and development, and said, “Use this prescription.” Who? Almighty Allah said this, and Islam is the prescription of life. It is the only divine source of bliss. The divine rules are all in Islam itself. It is Prophet Muhammad who implemented it. There is a fourteen centuries old document of this and it is more valuable than golds, rubies, and emeralds. There is a golden age of Islam. There was an unprecedented peace in the world in the times Islam was implemented. Then, when it was not implemented turmoil had occurred. We are trying to understand these, and tell them to our souls (nafs). We strive to share these truths (haqiqa) together, and this is our duty.
Let us see what Janâb-i Haqq says.
The hodja is reciting the 40th verse of Surah al-Maidah.
Janâb-i Haqq says, “Don’t you know that the kingdom (mulk) of the heavens and the earth belongs to Allah. Don’t you know Allah punishes whom Allah wills, and forgives whom Allah wills. Allah is All-Powerful (al-Qadir) over all things.”
There is a single, absolute, beginningless (azali) and endless (abadi) ruler. This absolute ruler is Allah. For one thing, do you think that you are doing something in this world by neglecting the Creator of the worlds, and the laws of Allah? See, the created denies the creator, he rejects the creator and neglects, never! If you do, then you will wake up when you die and you will be too late for repentance, and it will be a pity. Al-Quran Al-Karim warns you before you die. Understand Quran, and listen to it. At first, study Al-Quran Al-Karim thoroughly, or listen to those who know it if you can’t afford studying it. And then you will have met the truth.
The hodja is reciting the 41th verse of Surah al-Maidah.
Let us have a look at this verse together.
“O, Messenger! Do not let those who say “We have believed,” by their tongues but disbelieve in their hearts, and those among the Jews who hasten into the disbelief (kufr) grieve you.”
You see, here it is said that the hypocrites (munafiqun) and the Jews say they have believed with their mouths but they did not believe with their hearts, and do not have faith (iman) in their inner worlds grieve you. O, the glorious Prophet! O, Muhammad (asw)!
Time Stamp: 10:04
Says, do not be sorry for them. Allah had said this to Musa (a.s.) as well. Said, “Don’t grieve for these flagrant sinners (fāsiq). They give ear to the lies, and to the lot who don’t come to you, and they change the places of the words. Pay attention to these! The broken souls are being narrated. Al-Quran Al-Karim says, “If these are given to you, then take them, and if not, then abstain.” If Allah wants to lead someone astray, then you cannot do anything against Allah for it. They are such people that Allah did not want to purify their hearts. Janâb-i Haqq does not use force, and does not make anyone a Muslim by force. There is a wisdom (hikmat) when a servant (qul) is guided (hidayat). The servant (qul) is free, and he has to adopt faith (iman) by his free will. For them there are abasements in the world, and again there is a great punishment for them in the afterlife (aqhira). You see, their inner worlds are all broken – those who wish to suit the world to their desires, and say, “Prophet should obey us,” and never, “Allah should obey us,” whoever there is who says these, who say, “Obey us,” are looking for servants for their desires and their Iblis, for they have become servants of their own desire. They run away from right (haqq) and reality (haqiqa). “They say with their tongues, “We have believed,” but there is no faith (iman) inside them,” says Janâb-i Haqq.
You see, what those hypocrites (munafiqun) and the Jews did to our Prophet, those treasons are being narrated. See, there were broken souls on that day, there is today, and there will be tomorrow. The world and humanity are being warned about them. No scientist will tell you these things. Al-Quran Al-Karim narrates the souls to us but why? Because, it is Allah who created the souls, and brought forth the prescription of the hearts and souls with the Quran, and knows them very well because Allah is the creator of diagnosis. Allah brought forth the cure according to that, and says, “This is how you will be cured.” The treatment of this is having faith (iman) and becoming a good Muslim.
My dearest friends!
Janâb-i Haqq says the following.
The hodja is reciting the 42nd verse of Surah al-Maidah.
Now, pay close attention to this verse of the Quran as well, what does it say?
Says, “They give ear to the lies very much, and they take pleasure in lies, but they don’t take pleasure in the rights, and they eat haram a lot.” They don’t get pleasure from halal. They get pleasure from haram, why? Because broken people are always like this. See, this is like a crow that likes eating corpses. It eats corpses and this is what it likes, the broken souls are just like that. They don’t like the halals. And I will say this only to make a point. For example, they have a good wife in their homes, but they neglect her and seek ways of zina. Janâb-i Haqq says, “If they come to you, either judge between them or disregard them. If you disregard them, then they will not harm you in any way. But if you judge, judge between them with justice.”
You see, Islam is a complete justice. Indeed, Allah loves those who are just.
Time Stamp: 14:55
The hodja is reciting the 43rd verse of Surah al-Maidah .
Now, let us see what Janâb-i Haqq says in this verse of the Quran. “How do they make you a judge while the Torah in which there is Allah’s decree (hukm) is present is with them, and then turn away?” Look, these Jews are not pleased with the decree (hukm) of the Torah, and they are also not pleased with Prophet Muhammad’s decree (hukm). If it suits them, they are pleased with both, but it does not suit them. That is, they say, “What Allah says will not happen,” and say what they say will happen. You see, this is also how the Iblis started being the Iblis by objecting to Allah.
Don’t you ever object to any command of Allah ever! Never do that! Obey Allah. Whatever Allah commanded – Allah has commanded the best. And whatever Allah forbade, forbade them for your benefit. Always obey Allah, and do not ever revolt! This is fully beneficial to you; this is for your interest. You have chance to be saved from loss. Don’t you ever rebel against Allah! Don’t you ever be a rebel! Every command of Islam is a command of Allah, a law. They are not believers. For they don’t accept the decree (hukm) of the Torah. They don’t accept the decree (hukm) of Prophet Muhammad (asw), Islam, or the Quran.
Says, “They are not believers.”
Then again, let us see what Janâb-i Haqq said in the following verses of the Quran.
The hodja is reciting the 46th verse of Surah al-Maidah .
In Torah, we prescribed for them, a life for a life, an eye for an eye, a nose for a nose, an ear for an ear, and mutual qisas (retaliation). Yet whoever remits his qisas (retaliation) right, that shall be an atonement for his sins. Those who don’t judge by what Allah has sent down; it is they are the wrongdoers (zalimun).
You see, Janâb-i Haqq had brought forth the right of qisas to qisas which means retaliation in the Torah on that day. These are also valid in today’s Islamic law. For there is justice in Islam, and one can’t overstep the limit. Islam does not accept ifrat (too much) or tafrit (too little). Islam brought forth complete justice, and the right measure.
Moreover, Janâb-i Haqq said the following in another verse of the Quran.
The hodja is reciting the 46th verse of Surah al-Maidah .
Look, let us see what Janâb-i Haqq says in the following verses.
“After that Prophet, We have sent Isa son of Maryam to confirm the Torah which was with them.”
See, what did Allah do after Musa (Moses)? Musa’s duty came to an end, and Allah appointed Isa (Jesus). “We have sent down Isa.” “And We gave him the Bible containing guidance and light, confirming what was before it of the Torah, and as guidance and advice for those who fear Allah.” Pay attention! When the duty of a Prophet, who is sent for a time and place comes to an end, Allah Ta’ala commissions the next Prophet. See, Allah sent Isa (Jesus) after Musa (Moses), and the Bible after the Torah. Then, Allah sent Prophet Muhammad and Al-Quran Al-Karim in order to renew all these.
Time Stamp: 20:00
These are all books of Allah Ta’ala in Islam, and Prophets whom are assigned. The messengers (rasul) come with a new sharia (law), and the newer sharia (law) abrogates the previous sharia (law), and renews it. It is an obligation upon everyone to abide by the new sharia (law). The last one that came was Islam which Muhammad brought. The sharia (law) that Allah renewed is that of Islam, and that of the Quran. That said, the brand-new and only sharia (law) of the world right now is that of Islam. Before it, the valid one was that of Isa (Jesus), and before that it was that of Musa (Moses), and before him it was that of other Prophets such as Ibrahim (Abraham), and Nuh (Noah) before him. For the messengers (rasul) who come with new sharia laws have been called ulu’l azm prophets. Allah supported them with prophets (nabi). Now, the prophets (nabi) don’t bring new sharia laws, they implement the sharia law that is already present. However, the messengers (rasul) who are ulu’l azm prophets have come with new sharia laws. Moreover, it is Allah who renews the sharia laws, not anyone else. That said, in the last Allah renewed the sharia law of all humanity with Prophet Muhammad and the Quran. Whether people believe or not. We are obliged to present the truths to each other.
Let us see what Janâb-i Haqq says after announcing these truths.
The hodja is reciting the 47th verse of Surah al-Maidah .
Now, let us see the meaning of this verse, and find out what Janâb-i Haqq said.
Says, “Let the people of the Injīl (Bible) judge by what Allah sent down in it. Whoever does not judge by what Allah has sent down are the fāsiqūn.”
See, the sharia (law) which was valid before the coming of Islam, the Quran, and Muhammad’s sharia (law) is the sharia (law) of Isa (Jesus). They needed to judge by it. Says that those who don’t judge by it are fāsiqūn. Said, “Those who do not judge by the Injīl (Bible) are fāsiqūn. What was said in the previous verses? It was said that they are wrongdoers (zalimun), and disbelievers (kafir). What was said about those who don’t judge by the Torah? See, because there was the Torah before the Bible and Isa (Jesus). See, the valid sharia (law) of that time was it. What did Janâb-i Haqq say about those who don’t judge by it? Said, “Those who don’t judge by what Allah has sent down are disbelievers (kāfirin) and wrongdoers (zalimun). See, the sharia (law) of that time was the Torah, and the one after that was that of the Injīl (Bible). Do you know which sharia (law) is the last? The last one that renewed all of them, which never becomes old, is the brand-new sharia (law). It is the sharia (law) of Islam with which Allah renewed with Prophet Muhammad and the Quran. Right now, all eras after Prophet Muhammad until the Last Day are Muhammad’s eras, and Islamic eras. Islam is universal, and it came for all peoples. Prophet Muhammad is not a Prophet who was sent only to Israel. He is not an Arab Prophet. He is not a Turk Prophet either. He is the Prophet of all nations. He is the Prophet of all eras. He is the Prophet of all times and places. The sharia (law) of Islam is the sharia (law) of all nations. People may believe or not, that is up to everyone. There is no compulsion, there is freedom and liberty. You may believe or not, but we will all answer. We will all answer to Allah. Why did you not believe? Allah certainly wants it. Allah Ta’ala certainly says, “You shall judge by what I have sent down.”
Time Stamp: 25:00
Okay, you say you won’t judge by it. Right, that is up to you. We do not impose, but you do. You have imposed other things upon people. You have removed the things that Allah has sent down. So many awful things happened in the world because of you. You have distorted the souls, moralities (akhlaq), moralities became putrid. People have been distorted; families have been distorted. There is no peace left in the families. You did not leave any character in the nations. What have you done to the states? You brought forth states that invent terror. You are bleeding people dry in the world right now. Is this a right thing to do? If there is a truth somewhere, then its source is Islam. It was taken from Islam. However, the wrong and crocked things have no correlation whatsoever with Islam. Islam destroys terror, does not produce it. You have invented terror, and you are trying to ascribe it to Islam. You are trying to ascribe it to others, but it is you who invents it. Do you know what happens when you distort the justice which is right and real, and good and beautiful morality, and the hearts and the souls? You are training dogs but you are also distorting the character of humanity. Renounce this, give up. Allah, who created the souls and people has written a prescription, and sent it so that us servants (qul) may be happy; and that is Al-Quran Al-Karim. That is Islam. It is Prophet Muhammad who implemented it. See, the Prophets before him had duties as well, and Prophet Muhammad is the Last Prophet. It is Allah who assigned him. There is no doubt about this.
My dearest friends! Let us announce!
The hodja is reciting the 48th verse of Surah al-Maidah .
Let us see what Janâb-i Haqq says.
Al-Quran Al-Kareem – Tafsir (Exegesis) Lesson 181
On the 48th to 50th verses of Surah al-Maidah .
Our lectures continue with the 48th verse of Surah al-Maidah. Janâb-i Haqq commands in the verse: “To you, (O, Muhammad!),” says Janâb-i Haqq. “The Book that confirms the past books, that protects and preserves them and puts them under its protection; the Quran has been sent down to you with the truth (haqq).” You see, the Rabb says this. Look, Al-Quran Al-Karim first told you about the other books. Narrated you Musa (Moses) and Isa (Jesus), and the others. It gave you examples of some of the previous Prophets. And now the Quran came. What does it say? Says, “We have sent down Al-Quran Al-Karim to you with the truth (haqq). So, judge between them by what Allah has sent down. Says, “فَاحْكُم بَيْنَهُم”. “Do not follow their desires against the truth (haqq) that has come to you.” You see, a Prophet cannot abandon Allah’s command and follow anyone’s desire when it comes to justice. Allah commands what is truest, and the Prophet implements it.
“We have appointed a sharia and a way for each of you, and had Allah wished, Allah would have made you one ummah, but wanted to test you in regard to what Allah has given you. So, hasten in goodness. The return of you all shall be to Allah, where Allah will inform you about which you used to differ.”
That said, what will be done to the disputes of everyone on that greater court in the grand gathering (mahshar)? Allah will judge people and give the decree regarding who is right and who is wrong. Everyone will get what they deserve. However, there is a clear reality out there today. You need to understand Al-Quran Al-Karim which came last very well in order to prepare for that place well and receive rewards and be free. You need to believe well, and fulfil its commands very well. It is all up to you.
What does Janâb-i Haqq say here? “We have appointed a sharia and a way for each of you.” See, a shirʿa (sharia) and a minhāj (way) is being mentioned here, bear this in mind! This minhāj (way) is the sharia (law) of Islam that incorporates all values of the past and renews them. You see, it renewed the past, and is the witness of the entire past, and incorporates all documents of the future in itself, it is the brand-new Islamic order. It is Allah who brough forth the laws and rules of Islam with Al-Quran Al-Karim and Prophet Muhammad. We are telling this to people, the rest is up to them.
Janâb-i Haqq also says:
The hodja is reciting the 49th verse of Surah al-Maidah .
What does Janâb-i Haqq say? Says, “Judge between them by what Allah has sent down to you.” “O, Muhammad,” says Janâb-i Haqq. Alaihissalatu wassalam. That said, gives the duty to the ummah (people) in his person. The entire Ummah-i Muhammad must judge by what Allah has sent down with complete justice. Says, “Do not follow their desires.” Says, “Beware of them lest they should beguile you from part of what Allah has sent down to you.” You cannot make concessions to any command of Allah. You cannot even make concessions to a single command, because they are all divine, and they give life.
Time Stamp: 5:00
They do not harm anyone, for they are of divine origin, and they are necessities of maslahat. See, one cannot make concessions to any of the divine commands that bid what is beneficial and defy what is harmful and ensure the peace of all humanity. For example, do you think that a part of your body is harmful and you should cut it out? Can you get rid of an organ you have? You see, Islam is a perfect divine order that has no flaws or imperfections. Do you think there will be such a think as Islam if you get rid of a command and another person gets rid of another, if you get rid of the ones that do not suit your desires? Do you know what happens then? Everyone will be struck by the punishment of Allah. Those who get rid of the commands and do not judge between people justly will be punished first, and after them those who follow their ways, and those who follow their misguidance will be punished one by one because they are the travellers of the same way. You may say you have been deceived, but who do you think you can deceive by that? Don’t you have aql (intellect)? Yes, he may know how to deceive you, but don’t you know how to not be deceived? What is being shouted out from the heavens? The world, “الله أكبر” is being shouted out from the heavens, tearing it apart. The words, “مُحَمَّدُ الرَّسُولُ اللهْ” is being shouted. They are shouting out five times a day, saying, “Allah is the greatest, there is nothing greater other than Allah.” And what is being shouted out five times a day? They shout, “الله أكبر” four times in each azan. Five times four equals twenty. What is being said to you twenty times a day, so loud that it would tear the heavens apart? “There is nothing greater than Allah, and Muhammad is Allah’s Messenger.” If you don’t hear, or don’t want to hear, then it is up to you. After that, Allah calls you to the presence, brings you into the presence and speaks with you. You recite the Quran, and stand humbly with your hands tied. Allah calls you into the presence, to there, and says, “Come and let us talk.” You worship Janâb-i Haqq by reciting Janâb-i Haqq’s Book. You do not worship Allah by reciting someone else’s words. You worship by reciting Allah’s utterances (kalam). You see, Al-Quran Al-Karim is a book that is used for worship by reciting it. It is knowledge (ilm) and worship (ibadat), and ten nūr (light) is given for reciting every letter of it in the very least. It sheds nūr (light) and gives life. Its meaning gives life, and its original-text is a divine text, it also gives happiness. Everything about it gives life.
Let us see what Janâb-i Haqq says in the 50th verse.
The hodja is reciting the 50th verse of Surah al-Maidah .
Says, “Or do they seek the judgment of Jahiliyyah (Ignorance)? Who can be better than Allah in judgment for a people who have certainty?” You see, this verse makes a summary of the previous ones, and says “Or do they seek the judgment of Jahiliyyah (Ignorance)?” “Who can be better than Allah in judgment for a people who have certainty?” Islam is Allah’s decrees (hukm). Islam is the sovereignty of Allah’s rulership and laws. Accepting Islam means accepting Allah’s decrees, laws, and rulership. You see, this is what Al-Quran Al-Karim says to us, and we continue to say these to you, and spread (tabligh) them.

Al-Quran Al-Kareem – Tafsir (Exegesis) Lesson 182
We have given you short and core meanings of the verses so far, and in this lecture, we continue to give you certain notes from our exegetical discovery notes in order to further clarify them. These are, one by one, notes of reality and life. Islam wants to protect you from all wrongs, equip you with the rights, and make you happy. Islam wants to convey you to a blissful result; this is its goal. Islam is divine, and those who hold fast to it won’t regret ever. Being deprived of Islam is eternal regret, let me tell you that much. Now, the people in the West or the East who don’t have sharia (law), who don’t accept the order of Islam, have increased the crime rates. What did those who don’t accept divine justice do? They have increased the crime rates. Terror escalated, and peace, safety, and tranquillity are under threat.
See, at first divine justice, faith (iman), good deeds (amal-e-saleh), and good morals (akhlaq), and divine justice must be predominant in the hearts and souls. A person has to be able to control himself. That said, this is the prescription of how to implement the justice of Islam which was manifested by Allah’s rahmat (mercy); implement it in the nations of the world with justice, social justice, and mercy. This is something divine, but some people don’t implement it. Says, “I won’t implement it. We have our doings, we have laws and rules we have written and I will implement them instead,” and they call this contemporary, modern, contemporary civilization, and so many other things. Is there something more perpetual than Allah? Is there someone who knows better than Allah? What is modernity and contemporaneity next to Allah’s knowledge (ilm)? Those are backward things. Allah is beginningless (azali) and everlasting (abadi). Those people who say they are modern despite Allah, by ostracizing Allah – they should not forget that they are the most backward headed beings next to Allah’s knowledge (ilm). Allah gave them whatever they have. What do they do with Allah’s omnipotence (qudrah) and power? They can move, and whatever works they do – they try to do it with what Allah has given them. They earn, and Allah creates. Allah does not interfere in their freedom and liberty. This is why they got spoiled. See, mankind has to pay the heavy receipt of their impertinence, which is such a pity. Just take a look, prisons are full, but with whom? They are filled with terrorists, and thieves have been fed in the prisons. The causes that lead people to thievery are not dealt with. About thievery, the grand thieves are doing the actual thievery, but they don’t receive punishment, rather smaller thieves are being punished. This is a great transgression and tyranny (zulm), and it is because there is no justice, which is another topic. The exceptions don’t break the rule. Now, the thieves are being fed there, but the grand thieves don’t go to prison ever. As for those who get out, what do they do after they get out of prison? They do it again. Why? Because the punishments are not intimidating. There isn’t a rehabilitation system, and the causes that lead to crime are more numerous.
Time Stamp: 5:00
The scene of crime is ready, and there is no balance, there is no justice. The balances are all broken. Allah established the balance between the rich and the poor, which is done by divine justice, but the servant (qul) has disrupted this balance. The crime rate continues to escalate. There is dissuasiveness in Islam, there are hidden causes (hikmat). What does it do to crime and criminals? It erases them, and there won’t be anything like crime or criminals. See, if you eliminate the causes that lead to crime, then there won’t be crime or criminals. The causes that lead to crime must be eliminated whether they are physical, spiritual, external (zahiri), internal (bâtini), anfusi or afaqi. You need to put emphasis on these, but this is not practiced today. There is a materialistic education system that neglects morals (akhlaq). There is no basis for morality (akhlaq) around. What morals are you talking about where the hearts and souls don’t accept belief in Allah – where belief in Allah is not present? Some people come and bring something different and call it morality (akhlaq), and another comes with a different perspective. See, if you come up with philosophical morality, then there are various philosophies. One may call something good while another calls it evil. One may accept something as morality, and another may consider it immoral. However, the truth of the matter is what is divine. The creator of the servant (qul) wants morality from the servant (qul), which is the morality that Allah wants. It is as clear as that, and this is something divine. You see, about Prophet Muhammad morality (akhlaq), Allah says the following in Al-Quran Al-Karim.
The hodja is reciting the 4th verse of Surah al-Qalam .
“You! O, Muhammad! Indeed, you possess the greatest morality (akhlaq),” says Allah. Prophet Muhammad’s morality (akhlaq) is nothing but the Quran. See, this is the morality (akhlaq) of Islam, which is Muhammad’s morality (akhlaq). Muslims have this, and other nations are also Ummah-i Muhammad, and they are ummah ijabat. They are ummah ijabat. If they have not yet tasted it, then of course the religion of Islam embraced them as well. Islam says, “Come to the bliss and paradise of Islam and be happy.” Islam calls everyone. At first, those who call themselves Muslims have attained this morality (akhlaq) of Islam, and it is necessary for them to bear the morality (akhlaq) of Muhammad, and they must serve as a model for other nations. Now, about teaching others, one must know what he is speaking about. Al-Quran Al-Karim says the following.
The hodja is reciting the 2nd verse of Surah al-Saff .
“O believers! Why do you say what you do not do?”
Says, “Why do you say what you do not do?”
This is why we need to have this morality (akhlaq) in order to say something about it. It is absolutely necessary, and it is also necessary to set a good example. For the peace and comfort of the entire mankind is in faith (iman), good deeds (amal-e-saleh), good morals (akhlaq), social justice, and mercy; these are filled to the brim with love, just like endless seas. This love is the love of Allah. There won’t be anything other than beauty, love, brotherhood, and bliss when people love the creatures for Allah! You have robbed mankind of this, and robbed them blind, and you have ruined mankind. Then, you called this “human rights,” but on the other hand you neglected the hearts and the souls, such a pity. We have to recover from loss right now, and redirect everything to benefit.
Time Stamp: 10:05
We are telling you. The religion of Islam is a social order, and it does not lay the foundation for thievery, and gives the rights of the poor up front. It gives the rights of the poor, and says “He who sleeps with a full stomach while his neighbour is hungry is not among us.” Do you know who said that? Prophet Muhammad said that.
Now, Janâb-i Haqq says: “Whoever visits a sick person is like he has visited Me.” Says, “Whoever gives food or clothes to a poor, a needy, or an orphan is like he has fed Me, made a fest for Me, and gave me clothes.”
O, Muslim! Do things that Allah likes, and try to earn Allah’s pleasure (riza)! O, humanity! Do not deny this good mercy to mankind! Islam is a divine mercy that embraces all humanity. Islam is a divine mercy that embraces all humanity. Islam is the real social justice that protects rights of all humanity. Come, and don’t withhold this from people, you are ruining them! You cannot find another order like Islam, for everything about it is right and real, it shows mercy to humanity, protects humanity, and loves humanity. See, Islam is the divine order. Islam does not impose itself on anyone, only tries to do what Allah says. Islam is the manifestation of all beauties that Allah brought forth.
This is why, our dearest friends! We should stay away from fruitless debates and basic things, and endeavour to do most beneficial things. We should always endeavour in beneficial things whether we do it openly or secretly. We should seek the pleasure (riza) of Allah.
Now, it is really hard to accomplish all this without being a real teacher, or without being a man of knowledge and wisdom. These jobs should always be given to those who are competent at them, and people should be evaluated. That is, purity of the soul is essential in Islam. Tehzeeb-ul-Akhlaq, and disciplining of the morality (akhlaq) are essential in Islam. The religion of Islam is a religion of good morals. It is good morality in every aspect It is beauty and reality in every aspect, you cannot find flaws in it. Islam contains whatever is needed for humanity, good morality is an indispensable trait for humanity. This good morality is Islam. Now, about the morals that they call tasawwuf akhlaq. It is the soul of the sharia (law) and Islam. The disciplining of the soul (nafs), and the training of morals (akhlaq), and the three fiqh, bear these in mind! What is it? The disciplining of the soul, education of morals (akhlaq), three fiqh: Al-Fiqh Al-Akbar, Fiqh al-Zahir, and Fiqh al-Bâtini. See you cannot neglect even one of them. If you do neglect them, then you will fall into the valley of bid’ah, and struggle in it. If you neglect one of these, then you will flop around in the valley of bid’ah. You will tumble down into the valley of fisq and valley of bid’ah, and it will be a pity. Such a pity, but let us give some examples.
Time Stamp: 15:00
For example, the Kharijites, Mujassimah, and Müşebbehe are all in the valley of bid’ah. They have wrongs, except their right aspects. As for the Batiniyya, they are in the valley of fisq. Then again, some of the Wahhabis are excluded, but the Salafists are in the valley of bankruptcy. Those who are not like the majority are always considered exceptions in every matter. If there are certain people in Ahlus-Sunnah who have wrongs, then they are also considered in this matter, and they should renounce all the wrongs. This call is for everyone. The truths belong to us all, they are our beginningless (azali) and everlasting (abadi) values. As for the wrongs, we should eliminate them altogether. Islam is the abode of the rights, and Al-Quran Al-Karim is their source, and Prophet Muhammad is the one who implements it. Yes, Al-Quran Al-Karim is written in Arabic, but Prophet Muhammad had personally explained the Quran to the Arabs.
That is, no matter if you are an Arab or a Turk, you still need someone like Prophet Muhammad. See, if Prophet Muhammad gave the Quran to people so that they may open it and read only because they knew how to read Arabic, what would happen? Everyone would say something different. See, Allah explained the divine will (murad al-ilahi) and the real meaning in the Quran to Muhammad via Jibril. Prophet Muhammad also explained the Quran to the Arabs, and he explained Islam, implemented it, and then the sunnah (customs) emerged along with hadith-i sharifs and authentic narrations. It is Prophet Muhammad who clearly implemented and narrated Al-Quran Al-Karim and then linked it to a method and a system, this is his sunnah (customs). That is, the sunnah (customs) is his words, actions, and statements. Do you think you can understand Al-Quran Al-Karim correctly by neglecting Prophet Muhammad, the Quran, the Sunnah, hadith-i sharifs, faqihs (experts of fiqh), mufassirs, mujtahids, and whole community consensus (ijmā al-ummah)? You can only get it at your whim.
It is not like that; Prophet Muhammad has explained the divine will (murad al-ilahi). A firm proof was manifested through the Book, Sunnah, community consensus (ijmā al-ummah), and analogical reasoning of the jurists (qiyās-i fuqahā). We need to know these four sources well. That said, we need to hold our mujtahids in high regard. We need to pay close attention to our faqihs (experts of fiqh). Otherwise, don’t forget that a lack of order will arise if everyone gets something wrong and act according to their desires! Actually, this is what they want. They want a lack of order so that they may divide and they can’t come together again. This is why they are doing what they are doing, and this is like a festival for the shaitans and the enemy. However, their festival is not for the better good for humanity. Their doings and their festivals are for the detriment of humanity. The festivals of the shaitans are for the detriment of humanity. That said, it is for the better good of humanity if the entire world gathers in what is right (haqq) and real (haqiqa).
Yes, take a brief look at the world. There are people who go after a book called, “the real furqan.” See, this is what the enemy is after. There are shaitans, human shaitans, and the Imperialists who lead this endeavour. They are after a book called, “the real furqan.” They are after a fabricated Islam in order to divide and tear apart Islam. They are portraying themselves as if they are with the Shiites. It is not because they are friendly to the Shiites. It is because they are after fitnah (unrest) and fasad (mischief).

You have to know what’s what in every matter, every setting, and every era. You have to properly preserve the intact link that comes from the source of Ahlus-Sunnah wa’l-Jama’ah. Ahlus-Sunnah wa’l-Jama’ah and al-Firqat un-Naajiyah (saviour school) comes from this intact source, and it shall continue to exist until the Last Day. Hold fast to it. What shall people do with al-Firqat un-Naajiyah (saved school) until the Last Day? They shall continue their journey on the straight path, and they shall follow the true Islam that Prophet Muhammad implemented. See, this is what we call Ahlus-Sunnah wa’l-Jama’ah.
Now, who is a mufti? See, a mufti is he who has competence, intention, and deeds. A mufti is he who can convey the decree (hukm) of Allah (c.c.) and the Messenger of Allah (asw). Personal opinions are not considered as legal opinions (fatwa). See, some people say their own personal opinions about matters, but they are not legal opinions (fatwa), and they don’t have a religious value. Competence is required for that, this is one. A firm intention and action are required as well, that is two. And he has to be able to convey the decree (hukm) of Allah and the Messenger, and at the same time he has to be a mujtahid and an istinbat âlim.
Editor’s note: An istinbat âlim is an Islamic scholar who can reveal a concealed meaning through human effort which we call ijtihad. An âlim is an Islamic scholar.
Or he has to know the legal opinion (fatwa) of such people. That said, he should be able to convey the meanings and pedestals to today’s conditions and setting. He should also know ‚Ilm’ul Usul well. He should know the ‚Ilm’ul Usul well. So, what are the laws and rules of ‚Ilm’ul Usul? Well, the pedestals are clear. He has to know how to convey those to today’s settings, and the conditions of this day. For example, when you say means of transport in Al-Quran Al-Karim – what were the means of transport on the days when Islam was first born, and today? When you say, “means of transport,” you should be able to convey this meaning to today’s means of transport. He should not talk about camels or other animals in that context. Yes, a camel is a means of transport in its own setting, but there are also other means of transport in this era, such as the vehicles we use on the land, sea, and air.
Islam has encompassed all eras. A person who does not understand Islam and the Quran well cannot ever narrate the Quran, for his own knowledge is outdated, and he will assume the Quran is like that as well, and he will try to narrate it as such. Al-Quran Al-Karim brought forth the essentials and the real constitution. As for the Sunnah, it made them applicable, and established their rules. Al-Quran Al-Karim is the original constitution. See, just like human laws which are regulated according to the constitution and they can’t be against the constitution – Al-Quran Al-Karim is the entire constitution of life, it is a constitution that goes beyond the Last Day, it is a constitution that goes beyond all eras; it has encompassed all eras, for it is divine order of Allah, and it is the constitution brought forth by Allah. That is why we say the Sunnah is its implementation. See, you should look for all truths in Islam, Al-Quran Al-Karim, and Prophet Muhammad. This is what I am able to narrate; there are much more beautiful things in Islam that what I say. This is all I can say to the extent of my ability.

That is why Islam puts you under protection, for it wants to shield you, wants you to be happy, and gives you life. However, if you escape from it, then you will have to bear all of the afflictions that will visit you as a result of your action. See, justice is divine. Allah will manifest this justice. Justice will be fulfilled, and you cannot harvest faith (iman) by planting disbelief (kufr). You cannot harvest good health by planting sickness and microbes. Do you think you can run away from faith (iman) and plant disbelief (kufr), and then magically harvest faith (iman) and be happy? If you are contemplating on this in your head, then this is nothing but a dream and illusion. We need to be completely realistic. See, those truths and reality are the values that Allah brought forth. So, don’t you ever neglect Al-Quran al-Karim, Prophet Muhammad, and Islam.
Our dearest friends!
Why were all harmful things made haram (sinful)? All harmful things are haram (sinful), why? This is because Allah wants to save us servants (qul) from harm. Allah loves the servants (qul), and the worlds are manifestation of Allah’s mercy. Allah created all the worlds for you. That is why Allah forbids harmful things, so that us servants (qul) may pass the test and be happy at the same time, and so that we may find the Janna (Paradise), but you are forcing your way to the opposite way. There is a lesser and small aql (intellect) that Allah gave you, and you are trying to use it to deny Allah. Allah gave you your aql (intellect) so that you may understand and comprehend Islam, and accept the Rabb. The first creations are aql (intellect), the pen, and the nūr (light) of Muhammad. See, aql (intellect) and the pen represents knowledge and wisdom. As for the nūr (light) of Muhammad, it represents all that is real (haqq); it represents the reality. It is a manifestation of the truth (haqq) and mercy (rahmat). See, Janâb-i Haqq says the following about Prophet Muhammad in Al-Quran Al-Karim.
The hodja is reciting the 107th verse of Surah al-Anbiya .
“O, Muhammad! We have sent you as a rahmat (mercy) upon the worlds.”
Now, contemplate on this, think deeply, and understand it well!
“There is no responding to an evil deed with an equally evil deed.” See, this is present in Mecelle and it is a separate law and rule. That is why Muslims should always abstain from doubtful things as well. If they abstain from doubtful things, then their deeds are guaranteed. This way they can protect their religion, honour, and chastity.
Now, let me tell you about data from the UN. Now, this is the report of the economical and social matters of the UN. Let’s see what it says. This report is about the source of terror. Now, about a newspaper… On September 12, now let us see what happened. Let me tell you that as well, in 2005… On September 12, 2005… This report said the following. Now, this is the report of the UN, and mentions the source of terror. Says, “1 billion, developed countries.” Says 80% of the income is claimed by them. This is 80% of the global income. And says that the other 5 billion gets 20% and groans under the tyranny. Bear this in mind! The 80% of the global income is claimed by 1 billion people, and gives 20% to the remaining 5 billion.

Do you think there will be peace in this world like that? Where is social justice? Where are human rights? Yes, you have written them on paper, but you have to implement it as well. They should be in effect. They should be present in the consciences. This mercy should be present in all hearts and souls. All the hearts and souls that are to implement this manifestation of justice should become allies, and then implement this justice. It does not matter what you write on paper. We have read the report of the UN, and read the information in it. Then again, let us see what is said in the research done by Stiftung Zentrum für Türkeistudien. It is said that 30% of the Turks who live in Europe are poor. See, there cannot be such a wide gap and imbalance in a world where social justice is present. In every corner of the world, they are talking about globalization, but as we can see the balances can’t be established, and the balances of divine justice cannot ever be ensured. Still, the rich become richer, and the poor become poorer, and thus the exploitation continues. It is necessary to say stop to them. Prophet Muhammad is the Prophet of all humanity. He is a Prophet who was sent for the peace and bliss of all humanity. Whether people accept him or not, this is the reality of the matter. Janâb-i Haqq says that he was sent to all mankind, see the 28th verse of Surah Saba . See the 158th verse of Surah al-A’raf . Says, “We have sent Muhammad as a bringer of good news (beşīr) and a warner (nezīr).” See the 107th verse of Surah al-Anbiya . Says, “We have sent him as a mercy upon the worlds.” See how Janâb-i Haqq praises our Prophet in Al-Quran Al-Karim. See the 144th verse of Surah Ali Imran . See the 40th verse of Surah al-Ahzab . See the 2nd verse of Surah Muhammad . See the 29th verse of Surah al-Fath .
See, Janâb-i Haqq introduced him with the name Muhammad in these, and in Surah Saff  he is mentioned as Ahmad.
The 59th verse of Surah Maryam  says, “A group emerged who neglected the namāz (prayer), and followed their lusts.” This is what this verse of the Quran said.
Al-Buhârî says this has been seen in every period of time, and you should pay attention to the time you live in, because it is what concerns you. It is said in Bukhari Sharif that, “A special reward is being prepared in Jannah (Paradise) every time you visit the mosque.” See, this every step you take in the way of Allah to reach the presence of Allah in order to obey Allah and serve Allah – a reward is given for every step taken for worship and obedience. See, these are the truths that glorious Islam, the glorious Quran, and our beloved Prophet brought forth, and these are all Almighty Allah’s own laws and rules, and Prophet Muhammad has a duty, and is Allah Ta’ala who gives the duty.
