Iceland is one of the countries where atheism is most prevalent. A dense smoke covered it because of a volcanic eruption. Smoke erupts time and time again. This time the smoke spread right up to the sky. The events in Japan and Chernobyl happened at the same time. The sum total of these is the appearance of the smoke (that is reported in the hadith). It does not refer to one isolated incident.

We have no enmity toward anyone in the region. We want them all, Israel and Armenia included, to be at ease. We are not egoists, we have no national egoism. National egoism means fascism. And we are opposed to fascism and communism.
The important thing is the intellectual struggle. With an intellectual struggle you make a great impact. The important thing is the intellectual struggle against communism.
Muslims must protect and watch over one another. They must love one another and not fall for provocative actions. Our nation is a fine nation. Turkey is also most excellent. But Europe and Europeans and Americans are also very excellent. Everywhere in the world is very fine. Let us treat them all with love and affection. The Qur’an is true. The important thing is to earn Allah’s approval. There is the eternal life, and that is great. Darwinism and materialism have been intellectually annihilated, alhamdulillah. There is no need for conflict. Let us do away with arms, put a stop to tanks and guns and suffering and bloodshed. Let nobody weep or be sad. Let there be joy everywhere. Let us also love the People of the Book. Let us set good examples. Let us show that Islam is a religion of peace and love.
My brothers must not be taken in by incitement or provocative actions. We must always respond with goodness and pleasantness. We will espouse democracy, secular thinking and liberty and cause Islam to rule the world with its fine moral values, insha’Allah.
