Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9TV dated February 18th, 2013
ADNAN OKTAR: Scourges rise to the skies and just when they are about to rain down on man, if they see there is auspiciousness and beauty, they pass by that person without touching him. Just when they are about to strike, when there is auspiciousness and beauty, when there is a service for Islam, for the Qur'an, the scourges pass by and go away. Scourges look over that person once more, come by once more and see that the person is still busy with the Qur'an, with the Book, see that the person is communicating Islam, communicating the Qur'an, they pass by once again. Scourges check people out frequently. When they see them on something good, they pass by and go away each and every single time, they pass by when the person is after something good.
