Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar’s live interview dated September 2, 2010
Say: ‘Whether you give readily or reluctantly, it will not be accepted from you. You are people who are deviators.’ NOTHING PREVENTS WHAT THEY GIVE FROM BEING ACCEPTED FROM THEM BUT THE FACT THAT THEY HAVE REJECTED ALLAH AND HIS MESSENGER, AND THEY ONLY COME TO PRAYER LETHARGICALLY AND THAT THEY ONLY GIVE RELUCTANTLY. (Surat at-Tawba, 53-54)
Hypocrites give away but Allah does not accept them. These hypocrites give their money and possessions but unwillingly. They feel distress throughout their lives as if they are hurt badly or as a villager whose donkey has been stolen. Because they do not give away to earn Allah’s good pleasure, they consider it as a money lost in gambling. (Allah forbid) They consider themselves to be superior to Allah. They do not accept a leader for themselves. This offends hypocrites vey much. Allah says, “You will prostrate.” This offends hypocrites. Because giving away makes them feel suffering. Hypocrites run away from Muslims. A hypocrite hardly performs his prayers but he does it as if he likes it very much. A hypocrite does not perform his prayer when he is alone.
