Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9 TV dated May 27th, 2012
ADNAN OKTAR: We need to love each other as a nation. However our love for Allah is above everything else. Allah would devastate any nation who does not love Allah. Allah would devastate any nation who does not have an interest in Allah. It is not possible for such a nation to love each other. Without feeling love for Allah, without admiring Allah, without being in love with Allah, a nation would not have abundance and prosperity. There would only be misery, pain, suffering, division, devastation and nothing else [for such a nation]. We, of course, do not love Allah to live in comfort and in peace. We love Allah because we have to love Allah. We love Allah because it is what our conscience requires. However we, as a nation, have to love Allah even more with enthusiasm; we should be devoted to Allah even more. Abundance, prosperity, beauty, goodness, tranquility, growth, strength, power and world dominion, all lie within this secret. When you step outside this secret it is not possible to attain any of them. You can get whatever technical precaution you like, cooperate with any country you like, do the propaganda you like, activate all the scientists you like, you cannot attain anything but misery, scourges, pain and suffering, it is not possible [any other way]. That is because all the power and all the strength is in Allah, yet when some people fail to understand this fact and assume that materials and events are independent from Allah, the door to scourges is opened and the scourges find the way to come.
