What He Said?What Happened?

Bağdat TV: March 2nd, 2008

Adnan Oktar: The Sun rises where it sets and sets where it rises. This is generally so. So if the Sun set here then it will rise here as well; this is my primary faith. My second faith is that according to the hadiths, the Mahdi will emerge from Istanbul. There are lots of hadiths. It is said to be Constantinopole. There are many hadiths saying that the Turks will play a part in this.

Adnan Oktar: It is stated that Turkey will be the leader of the Islamic world and it is also  told that the important incidents of the End Times will take place in Istanbul. Truly, Istanbul is the culture capital of the world and it is important for the whole world. It is the center of all religions.
