The political situation of Yemen has grabbed the attention of the media, politicians, and individuals from around the world. Their interest in Yemen comes from the concerns of Yemen’s friends who want to get information quickly the quick.
Adnan Oktar recently hosted the Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of National Yemen, an English weekly newspaper published in Yemen. The live interview was televised on September 24th on A9 TV studios, Istanbul a Turkish TV satellite channel.
Adnan Oktar: Welcome, it is so kind of you to be here.
Fakhri Al-Arashi: It is a pleasure of mine to be here. Since you have really contributed to my newspaper National Yemen, I feel pleasure to meet you.
Oktar: We are brothers, no matter in which corner of the world we may be, we are brothers. Muslims are brothers; we will also be brothers in paradise and here, insha’Allah. Can you outline the situation in Yemen now, so that we can have a better understanding of the situation of our brothers there?
Al-Arashi: Actually as you have seen on TV or you may have read it online, there is a political uprising happening. May Allah protect my country and the rest of the world. Since I left the country last week there is an accelerating political uprisings happening over there. Yemen has been going through a political transition for the past two years but still Yemen is a fragile country, polarized by the many different regional and international players who are playing politics and have interests in Yemen. What happened lately, mainly in the last week and the past two-three-four days in particular is in part because Yemen is a key strategic country and all the international players are trying and looking to have control over the country.
Oktar: We see the manifestations of the End of Times in Yemen. Every corner of the Islamic world is in devastation. There is also pain, suffering, and afflictions in Yemen. This is the initial labor pain of a beautiful birth. In the near future, Yemen will attain a much better grandeur.
Al-Arashi: I am very optimistic, thanks for your very gentle and optimistic words. As you said, Yemen is one of the Arab Spring countries. Yemen has been a different example when it comes to the Arab Spring countries. As you know the Arab Spring reached Tunisia ,Libya, Syria, Egypt and Yemen. Yemen is a different example of the Arab Spring countries. It is a peaceful example, but, as I said before, a fragile country. Yemen is the only country that is controlled and supervised by the UN Council, by the UN, by the G10 countries who are trying their best to keep Yemen safe because Yemen enjoys a strategic location in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden.%40 of the global trade mainly oil pass Bab al-Mandab strait, So the stability of Yemen is very important.
Oktar: You are the sons of Vassal Qarani. Surely we are going through a trial but with this beautiful spirituality, this beautiful faith, we will altogether attain a beautiful end. As long as Muslims are brothers, as long as they are in contact with one another. As long as they work for the good of one another and consolidate their friendship. If the irreligious people see that Muslims protect one another all over the world, there is nothing they can do. Then the Islamic World will reveal itself as the greatest power. This will happen soon.
Al-Arashi: This is the hope of everybody. As you may know, our grandfathers reached the Far East and they reached Spain, Andalusia. And we would like to recall that history. You the Turks, as you were the Empire of Muslim countries you have reached Yemen, and that is how we came to know you. And you have reached the rest of the Arab countries as part of the Islamic empire. So we are looking for the Muslim countries to reclaim and enjoy this history.
Oktar: Masha’Allah. Now history repeats itself. The Islamic World will come together again. This does not come into being without any pain. We need to consolidate our brotherhood as much as possible. We need to reinforce our friendship as much as possible. This will be an auspicious act of worship that will please God. We are in the End of Times. We are in a beautiful era.
Al-Arashi: We are in a very challenging time.
Oktar: Yes, yes.
Al-Arashi: And we have to overcome those challenges.
Oktar: Muslims are right now advocating the strongest idea of the world and they are in the most decisive era. All the ideologies have collapsed; fascism, communism, capitalism. All ideologies have collapsed, only Islam’s path is open.
Al-Arashi: True, that is why we believe in the Kitab, the Qur’an, and we believe in the Prophet Mohammad (pbuh), which he has the Sunnah, and we believe in one Prophet, we believe in one God.
Oktar: Yes, our Prophet (pbuh) had told all these incidents of the End of Times down to their leanest details. And they all come true. This is a great miracle. It is so fine that you are talking about peace, brotherhood, and love. It is evident that you are on the path of our Prophet (pbuh), on the way of Hazrat Mahdi as I am, that you are a follower of Prophet Jesus, and above all, that you are a follower of our Prophet (pbuh).
Al-Arashi: Yes that is what we believe. We believe in all the prophets sent by Almighty God. We believe in all the nations and their prophets. We believe in Moses, Saleh, Lot, Hud and Ishmael. As a Muslim country this is a clear message. We didn’t have any problems nationwide. It is a matter of education and that is how we have been brought up in life, and that is how they have been educated, and it is our rule as Muslims and as Mr. Oktar is doing, it is just a matter of telling the truth. If we don’t do that, then we are committing worse mistakes than them.
Oktar: Insha’Allah. May God add to your holy light. May God make us see the reign of Islam. May God make both you and me the followers of Hazrat Mahdi. May God make me, you, and all Muslims the followers of the Prophet Jesus. May Almighty God make us truly comply with the Qur’an. May God make us be the followers of our Prophet (pbuh) in the true sense of the Word. We know that those good days are close at hand. Insha’Allah may God lengthen our lives, so that we can see those days.
Al-Arashi: This is the part of the Muslim community because we are unique and waiting for that day. Even in our bad times, even if we commit a sin, even if we make mistakes, we still regret, and Almighty God accepts those regrets for us because we believe in our religion.
Oktar: Masha’Allah. Insha’Allah we will meet again. For today let’s end our broadcast. May God make us convene around the tables of paradise and see each other like this.
