BEDIUZZAMAN TOLD THAT HE WILL ENGAGE IN ACTIVITIES WITH HIS WISDOM AND INTELLIGENCE
SEVENTH MATTER: (Risale-i Nur Collection, Fifth Ray)
There is a narration: “The Sufyan will be an eminent scholar; he will fall into misguidance through his learning. Numerous other scholars will follow him.”
The knowledge is with God, an interpretation is this: although he has no means of sovereignty such as strength and power, tribes and peoples, courage and riches, like a king, HE WILL WIN THAT POSITION THROUGH HIS CLEVERNESS, SCIENCE, AND POLITICAL ACUMEN, AND THROUGH HIS INTELLIGENCE HE WILL BEWITCH THE MINDS OF MANY OTHER SCHOLARS, MAKING THEM DICTATE HIS WISHES. HE WILL ATTRACT NUMEROUS TEACHERS TO SUPPORT HIM, and pointing out to them the way to an education system stripped of religious instruction, will work for its widespread enforcement.
ASSUMING HIM TO BE A GENUINE SPIRITUAL TEACHER, SOME PEOPLE WILL FOLLOW ANTICHRIST
When he (antichrist) appears, he will summon to faith and righteousness for the first time; EVERYONE WILL FOLLOW HIM, ASSUMING HIM TO BE A GENUINE GUIDE…
Those people of wisdom recognizing this will diverge from him…
