The Baselessness of the claims against Mr. Adnan Oktar and SRF circle suggesting “alleged different religious practices.”

New Humanist magazine expressed some of the baseless claims of some masonic, Darwinist and materialist centers together with their biased comments and brought forward the claim that Mr. Adnan Oktar allegedly engaged in different religious practices. However this unreal claim, which is totally based on speculations, is nothing beyond a slander made by some masonic centers to attain their insidious goals. Indeed this claim is refuted by countless evidences. 
Mr. Oktar’s works and interviews expounding the Ahl Al-Sunnah creed, the obligatory nature and merits of the salat 5 times a day are closely followed worldwide. Furthermore these are included in Adnan Oktar’s books that have been published since 1990s. Consequently there exists no evidence and witness to bring such a claim against Adnan Oktar.
When Adnan Oktar’s works are examined, his views regarding to adherence to Ahl Al-Sunnah in performance of salat are explicitly seen. In the book, Quick Grasp of Faith- 1, p.63 and 64, the author expounds that salat is five times a day and it is made up of a total of 40 rakat including its obligatory, essential and sunnah rakats. In the book, Basic Tenets of Islam, p. 81-83, it is again explicitly related that salat is 5 times a day and is made up of 40 rakats. In another book of the author, Perfected Faith, p. 24-25, he explains that salat is performed 5 times a day.
Our valuable Theology professors also submitted their scientific opinions stating that the author’s religious understanding is in line with the Hanafi school and in compliance with Ahl Al-Sunnah. Prof. MEHMET BAYRAKDAR, one of these valuable professors from Ankara University Theology Faculty, states the following in his scientific opinion: 

“ IN NONE OF THE WORKS OF THE AUTHOR THERE EXISTS ANY VIEWS CONTRARY TO THE QUR’AN AND SUNNAH, THE FUNDEMENTAL SOURCES OF ISLAM. On the contrary, our traditional Turkish-Islamic understanding is preserved. Any information contrary to our national and religious customs does not exist...”
