Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9 TV dated December 15th, 2011
Ms. CEYLAN: Master, you always praise the way Allah creates, insha'Allah.
ADNAN OKTAR: Of course..
Ms. DIDEM: Of course, masha'Allah.
ADNAN OKTAR: According to their mentality the one that we compliment is an idol. An idol. When you say "beautiful eyes" - I say this almost in every speech I make- who do you mean?
Ms. DIDEM: We mean Allah, His Manifestations.
ADNAN OKTAR: You mean Allah. When you say "beautiful nose", does that person create that nose? Does it belong to that person? The nose belongs to Allah. Beautiful lips, beautiful eyes, beautiful ears, beautiful hair, all belong to Allah. The color belongs to Allah, the shape belongs to Allah, the pleasure we take from that belongs to Allah. Allah creates that mutual pleasure. Allah creates the light, Allah creates the shadow. Allah creates them all and their forms. And the man sees it as a separate, independent being. It is not an independent being. Then you would be ascribing partners to Allah. All the praises are for Allah. When the system cannot be freed from that idolater's mindset, when they look into things with the eyes of the idolater, then the world becomes completely different. I mean we see that the idolater system of those people who see themselves as independent beings constitute this horrifying structure. That system of ascribing partners to Allah, that idol system lies at the root of this horrifying structure. If they could strip themselves from that idolater's idol system they would then realize that the compliments are for Allah and their hearts would be at ease. But when they presume that the praises are for the idol, then the evil power gets activated. He then says "Why are you prasing that idol?" They assume that idols are in a fight with each other. In fact Allah is the One praised there. That compliment there is not to that idol. If you pay that compliment to that idol, then Allah would take that love from your heart anyway. There will be no such beauty, no such affection. If Allah is showing us those beauties and if He makes us love them this much, that is all because we love them as the manifestations of Him. If we had loved them as idols, Allah would have never created such a blessing. He wouldn't have created such love, such beautiful words either.
