Milli Görüş Movement late leader Prof. Dr. Necmettin Erbakan, who worked for the sake of Allah and fought against superstition throughout his life, is commemorated with mercy and prayers throughout the country and the Islamic geography on the 13th anniversary of his death.
We once again commemorate Erbakan Hodja, who achieved important successes such as the Revolutionary (Devrim) Automobile, the heavy industry move, the Cyprus Peace Operation, D-8 and many more, with longing and affection on the anniversary of his passing to the afterlife.
In addition to his political identity, Erbakan Hodja, an engineer who made a name for himself around the world with his work, also stood out with his spiritual aspect.
Erbakan Hodja, who worked for the welfare and happiness of all humanity, especially Muslims, throughout his life, said "Morality and Spirituality First" and had his name written in golden letters in history on his path.
Erbakan Hodja, who declared war on the system of exploitation and put up a great struggle for human rights and freedoms, laid the foundations of the Milli Görüş cause and left his mark on both Turkish and world politics.
Erbakan Hodja, who endured many difficulties for his cause, demonstrated how to do important work in a short time.
4 political parties founded by Erbakan Hodja, who achieved important successes such as the Revolutionary Automobile, the heavy industry move, the Cyprus Peace Operation, D-8 and many more, were closed, they fought against bans and slanders, but they never gave in.


Necmettin Erbakan Hoca was born on October 29, 1926 in Sinop. Erbakan, who graduated from Istanbul Boys' High School with first place in 1943, entered Istanbul Technical University. Erbakan, who started working as an assistant in the Engines Department of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the university he graduated from in 1948, was sent by Istanbul Technical University to Aachen Technical University in Germany in 1951 to conduct scientific research. Erbakan, who prepared 3 theses, one of which was a doctorate, at the DVL Research Center, which conducts research for the German army, attracted attention with the work he did there for years, and worked on tank engines as the chief engineer in Germany's largest engine factory.


Returning to Turkey with the experiences he gained during his stay in Germany, Erbakan established the Gümüş Engine Factory in 1956 to produce Turkey's first domestic engine.
Erbakan, who became the general secretary after being appointed as the head of the Industry Department of the Union of Chambers in 1966, was elected as the president of the Union of Chambers a year later.
Erbakan, who spent an active period in the union of chambers, was removed from this position by the order of the Ankara Governorship of the time. This decision started Erbakan's political journey.
Erbakan, who was elected as an independent member of parliament from Konya in 1969, made history when he responded to the comments made towards him during his parliamentary work, "There is no spring with a single flower", by saying "Yes, there is no spring with a single flower, but every spring begins with a single flower."


Konya Deputy Necmettin Erbakan founded the National Order Party with 17 of his friends on January 26, 1970.
Chairman Erbakan pursued a policy oriented towards the ideals of the Milli Görüş.
Prioritizing the fight against 'Zionism' in politics, Erbakan brought the "Palestine cause" to the agenda in Turkish politics and public opinion.
However, after the memorandum of March 12, 1971, the National Order Party was closed down on the grounds that it was "carrying out activities against secularism".
When the National Order Party was closed, Erbakan founded the National Salvation Party (MSP) with his friends on October 11, 1972.
The party won 48 deputies and 3 senators in the 1973 election and entered the Turkish Grand National Assembly with 51 parliamentarians.
With his success in the elections, Erbakan ensured the formation of the CHP-MSP coalition government.


The name of Necmettin Erbakan, who showed a courageous will in the beginning of the Cyprus Peace Operation held on July 20, 1974, began to be used as "Mujahid" during this period.
However, in the military coup of September 12, 1980, Erbakan Hodja and the Milli Görüş movement he led were targeted once again.
Erbakan, who was detained in Izmir after the coup, was later arrested by the court and remained in prison for 9 months.
After being released from prison, Erbakan established the Welfare Party on July 19, 1983.
After winning the local elections, the Welfare Party also won the general elections.


The Welfare Party, chaired by Erbakan Hodja, came to power in Turkey.
Erbakan Hodja became Prime Minister and it was time to implement legendary services. During the 11 months of power, great services were provided to the country and the nation.
Türkiye's prestige and reputation reached its peak with the wonderful services provided both at home and abroad.
Unfortunately, the Refahyol Government, which was brought to power by the people on February 28, 1997, faced a "postmodern coup".
When this process ended with the permanent closure of the Welfare Party, the Virtue Party, the fourth party of the Milli Görüş movement, was established on December 17, 1997.
However, Virtue Party was also closed on 22 June 2001.


Upon the unjust closure of the Welfare and Virtue parties, Erbakan once again proved his incredible perseverance and determination, which are identified with his personality, by using the expression "He who took our horse, did not take our way".
Erbakan Hodja, who received a 5-year political ban during this period, fought for the establishment of Saadet Party.
Erbakan Hodja, who worked for the sake of Allah throughout his life and fought against superstition, handed over his life trust to his Lord on February 27, 2011.
Erbakan was buried in Merkezefendi Cemetery on March 1, 2011, after a funeral ceremony held in Istanbul Fatih Mosque with the participation of millions of people, instead of a state ceremony, as per his will.
