Bediuzzaman says on page 346 of his Letters that hypocrites are “exceedingly base, their consciences having sunk to the lowest levels." “They knowingly sell the faith in exchange for this world.” For their own advantage. “And they exchange the diamonds of truth” (the Qur’an, which is as valuable as diamonds and all one needs, Islamic Union, the way of the Mahdi, the Prophet Jesus and all good things) “for filthy, vexatious buts of glass.” They exchange them for polytheism, filth and their own advantage. “Snakes in human form...” He says they normally resemble snakes. You can talk to them all you like, but their vile hearts will never change. On page 78 of the Emirdağ Addendum Bediuzzaman says, “The hypocrite has no faith, no heart and no conscience."
He is against the Prophet. Only against the Prophet? No, he is also opposed to Hazrat Mahdi (as) and Jesus the Messiah. He does not attack just any person. He goes right to the top. That is why Bediuzzaman says , “By ruining my honor” referring to them supposedly striving to belittle him in people’s eyes. They accused Bediuzzaman of madness and perversion, saying right from the time of Sultan Abdulhamid that he is incompatible with Ahl al-Sunnah (the people who follow the Sunnah of the Prophet (saas) and adhere to the largest mass of the Muslims beginning with the congregation of the Companions of the Prophet) and that he intended to damage Ahl al-Sunnah belief.
As though the value of the Nur will decrease in this way. They will seek to bring down the value of my works, he says. Hypocrites will do the same thing to Hazrat Mahdi (as), attacking both his person and his works. They resort to the courts to hinder the spread of the Nur. If the Risale-i Nur were to spread, their sultanate would collapse. He [Bediuzzaman] says the worst thing that will happen is that they are martyred. He tells [to his students] to be courageous and determined. “Second, to encourage panic and slackness among the followers of the Nur.” How? By saying the police are after you, they are going to stamp all over you, that the communists are playing with you. “To prevent the spread of these… If the Risale-i Nur were to spread, then Islamic Union would arise, and the sultanate of the hypocrites would fall apart.
That is why they spurn it, because their own sect will perish, and their own interests, their own businesses, their own profits and their homes. That is how they think. Whereas the opposite actually applies. Be it in Bediuzzaman or the Mahdi of the End Times, the way of the Mahdi brings with it beauty, plenty and. “Have no fear, we will happily lose poor heads such as our own for a blessed truth for which millions of heroes have died.” He says the worst thing that can happen is that we are martyred. Bediüzzaman tells them to be brave and determined. Regarding the hypocrites, Bediüzzaman says, “enemies are more harmful when they are unknown.” The hypocrite is unknown; he is perfidious and goes and lives like a tumor in a Muslim community.
Then he treacherously shows his true face. And he lines unbelievers up behind him. He begins to attacks Muslims and to spread false rumors and play tricks of all kinds. He says there is a risk of one’s force being dispersed, and that courage overcomes this. The struggle against the hypocrite increases one’s own fervor. Bediüzzaman says it makes one sounder. “Fitna [mischief] is as terrible as one who kills,” says Almighty Allah. Fitna is responsible for the worst actions in the world. He says that the hypocrite mocks and is deceitful. He is two-faced and always planning where to strike from next. He is a trickster and always developing his tactics. Bediüzzaman says he dissimilates. Bediüzzaman says the hypocrite is a direct foe. He manifests the cleverness of satan because satan is inside him. He becomes satan in human form.
We were soul. We promised Allah from time immemorial. The system we see after death will continue and change. The image we see is not that sharp, but it will become sharper. “Sight on that day is very sharp” Allah says. But we are busy coming to know the world here at this moment. I mean, we are learning proper moral values. We are learning the value of blessings. We are learning the value of a cup. Allah says there are goblets there. We like cups in this world. But they mean nothing to us here. There are cars here, but also in paradise. That is why we will like them, because we learn of them here. Paradise will thus acquire meaning for us. It would be different if we went there without having learned anything. It would be much weaker. But now it is very strong, insha’Allah. Looked at in scientific terms, no sound or image is ever lost.
That is scientifically impossible. No image we see right from childhood, no sound we hear, ever ceases to exist for all eternity. It is constantly in the memory of Allah and remains there, insha’Allah. Allah had to make us acquainted with ourselves. He is doing that now. But we cannot now remember what has been since time immemorial. In the same way one cannot remember if one loses one’s memory. But we will remember everything from time immemorial in the hereafter. There is no test in the eternal life. The test is in this world. Our test ends here. Allah has created much in great detail. It all exists as images within us. There is no light in the originals on the outside. Images outside our brain are completely dark. Matter is transparent, and you could see that if you could shed light on it. It is transparent like glass.
But there is no light on the outside. It is all created in our brains. This pen top is created separately, the three parts of the pen separately, and is again created to write separately. We have the intention to write, the pen arrives in the air and we start. Allah writes whatever enters our hearts, insha’Allah.2011-07-31 16:44:51
