Allah suddenly wakes people from out of their summer sloth. One must not fall into summer lethargy. Otherwise satan will take devilish advantage. Muslims must be awake and intelligent, and full of fervor. They must love one another. They must look for what they have in common, not for what divides them. They must ask what unites, rather than divides us. They must attach no credence to separatists. They must attach no credence to people who catch the sickness of division. They must only attach credence to unifiers.
Our Prophet (saas) looks at a fixed point and describes what he sees. He provides exceptional detail. For example, Hazrat Mahdi (as) will have this kind of eyebrow, that kind of eye, a seal on his back, the vehicles of the time will be like this and people will talk like that … He provides wonderful detail. Thousands of hadiths came into existence, and Allah has preserved the great majority. They are coming about exactly. That is quite amazing, insha’Allah, alhamdulillah.
(About the heavy hail in Ankara (in Summer))
I have never seen such hail in the last 60 years. It starts all at once and no technical precautions are any use. It is really heavy in Ankara, and most intense in Çankaya. This is a sign. Allah is sending a message. He is showing us His greatness and might. Almighty Allah is attracting our attention to Himself. So we can properly love and appreciate Him. As Allah says in one verse, “They do not measure Allah with His true measure.” It is very important to properly appreciate Him.
“In the same way that Almighty Allah fills the sky with clouds and causes them to empty in a moment, so He may disperse the oppression of the Islamic world with Hazrat Mahdi (as) who raises sea storms in a second and produces examples of summer in spring in a single hour or winter storms in summer in an hour. And He has promised this, and will keep His promise.” (Letters, 411-412)
Bediuzzaman says that examples of winter will appear in summer in discussing Hazrat Mahdi (as) in the End Times. For those who can understand and look with comprehending eyes. Those who ignore the fact are different.
(A commentary on the hadith regarding cats and dogs not fearing one another in the time of the Mahdi)
My attention was caught on the internet yesterday. There was a picture of hundreds of dogs and cats all curled up with one another. Something that has never been seen before. Generally dogs chase cats, not in ones and twos but hundreds. All rolled up together. Dogs and rabbits in the same way. This is a characteristic of the End Times. A gentleness has appeared among animals. They are calmer, more loving and gentler.
