Surat al-Anfal, Verse 73
Those who are unbelievers are the friends and protectors of one another. If you do not act in this way there will be turmoil in the land and great corruption.
Disbelievers ally and so do believers. However, MUSLIMS ALSO WANT TO INCLUDE THE DISBELIEVERS IN THEIR ALLIANCE, INSHA’ALLAH. But in compliance with this verse, the alliance of Muslims, their uniting is obligatory. On the contrary, Allah says “I will devastate you then. I will give you mischief.” As you can see, the Islamic world has been ruined and all corners of the world are in devastation. Allah says, “BUT IF YOU ALLY, I WILL REMOVE MISCHIEF. OTHERWISE THESE SCOURGES WILL FOLLOW YOU.” For a hundred years the Islamic world has been struggling against these scourges. These scourges will come to an end when they follow Hazrat Mahdi (as) and Prophet Jesus (as), insha’Allah. See that the Islamic world has been defeated and there is mischief going on everywhere.
WHAT HAS TO BE DONE FIRST IS TO FORTIFY THE FAITH OF PEOPLE WITH THE MIRACLES OF THE QUR'AN AND THE SIGNS LEADING TO FAITH.
It is all a matter of faith. If a person has a profound faith, then he has great morality. He becomes perfect. If he has a weak faith, then his power would not suffice to accomplish many things. Consequently you can not obtain any results if you present tasawwuf related descriptions to a person with weak faith. We must deepen his faith with the miracles of the Qur'an and the signs leading to faith. Then you can say whatever you wish. This is what is right and reasonable. He has weak faith but you are speaking about tasawwuf to him. How will it be? WISDOM IS IMPORTANT. HE WILL SEE IT THROUGH HIS WISDOM AND THEN HIS HEART WILL APPROVE IT. WISDOM AND THE HEART MUST HAVE EQUAL STRENGTH; THEY WILL WORK TOGETHER. IF ONE DOES NOT EMPLOY HIS WISDOM, THEN ONLY THE HEART BRINGS ABOUT WEAK FAITH. THAT KIND OF A FAITH, WISDOM AND THE HEART TOGETHER BECOMES STRONG AND INFLUENTIAL, INSHA’ALLAH.
