Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9TV dated January 18th, 2013
MERVE BUYUKBAYRAK: [I seek refuge with Allah from the satan. Surat Al-Kahf, verse 72] "He said: Did I not say that you will not be able to have patience with me?"
ADNAN OKTAR: He reminds that again. I mean Allah emphasizes the fact that patience is a very crucial matter; that it is of vital importance for Muslims. People go astray when they do not have patience. For instance, one might perform his prayers for very long years and then cannot bear to continue and give up. One might strive as a Muslim for years and then cannot bear to continue and give up. Or one might bear with something for a while and then go and shoot someone, may Allah forbid, or fail to bear with it any longer and say something unseemly whereas if he were to show patience he would be saved for good and have a very beautiful life. Patience is the key concept. Allah always praises patience in the Qur'an. Patience is one of the most important characteristics of the Mahdi and it is also one of the most important characteristics of his students. Many people will betray Mahdi just because they will fail to show patience. Those who have patience will remain by his side.2013-02-18 22:04:02
