ADNAN OKTAR: Being a Muslim means having the best life style. It means the highest quality. If this is not aimed, then it means that Islam isn’t being practiced.

ADNAN OKTAR: In ultra-modern Islam, there is enthusiasm, affection, love, a great tendency for art, a tendency for beauty and aesthetics, beauty in turns of phrase, beauty in compassion, no limits in clothing; everybody can wear anything they like, everybody can do makeup however they like, everybody can laugh as they wish- there is the aim of increasing art, science and aesthetics to the highest level, the feeling to look for everything that gives us happiness in our souls. In Islam, people love and protect each other perfectly, and they also show love even to their enemies. These are the things people live naturally in the heart. We will listen to our heart. When we listen to our heart, when we listen to what Allah puts in our hearts, we become the most modern.

ADNAN OKTAR: People should like listening to music, dancing, should laugh, should have fun, should try to make their houses more beautiful, should try to make their garden more beautiful. If a person turns in on himself, and he is slow, and showing the character of a madman, this is a sickness, this is trouble.
There should be a very proper understanding of religion, understanding of Islam. There should be an understanding of religion, which has great freedom; an understanding of religion which is alive, dynamic, sparkling, including art, aesthetics and beauty; the real soul of the Qur'an should be revealed.

ADNAN OKTAR: Islam is the life style of the most modern people of the world. Let’s think, how can a person be perfect? That is Islam. How can a person be qualified and the best? That is Islam. The best manners, the wisest, the cleanest, acting accurately, thinking in the best way, trusting in Allah, most patient, most merciful, most humane; I can continue till morning. A Muslim is a person who has all these features.
