Allah is creating these events in order to incite Islamic zeal. Some people think it does not matter what happens so long as we are not affected. But if that mentality persists, so will this oppression. Our Prophet (saas) says that these events will go on one after the other until the Mahdi, one of my children, appears. Until the coming of Mohammad al-Mahdi (as). The End Times are happening before the eyes of all mankind.
Religion is moral virtue. It is totally moral virtue. Islamic Union is the greatest religious obligation and is above all things. That is the real virtue. Someone who does not espouse Islamic Union is in a very abnormal position. Islamic Union is virtue personified. You see our brothers fighting and dying on the streets. It is the alleged terror organization Ergenekon that is martyring them. Some of our brothers look around and become fixated on the headscarf. The headscarf is just one religious commandment. But the greatest obligation is Islamic Union, but they never talk about that.
You talk about marriage, the headscarf or getting a job when the main thing you should concentrate on is Islamic Union. Islamic Union is the most vital matter. You cannot have the others without Islamic Union. You must concentrate on the most vital issue. And when you have Islamic Union, the rest all follows. If you do not concentrate on Islamic Union, things do not happen because you try and solve them from the edges. Allah constantly responds to Muslims with the rod of destruction. Because they do not concentrate on the essential issue. Allah will give them no peace if they have no love for Hazrat Mahdi (as) and the Prophet Jesus (as) in their hearts. He does not and He will not, by the law of Allah. There is no Islamic Union, but people ask about marriage or the best way of eating rice. They should ask about Islamic Union. Once we have Islamic Union the world will be a paradise for those women who cover their heads and for those who do not. Nobody will interfere with anyone else. You will experience love and peace in the finest way. But if you do not want that, then these troubles will keep coming. Islamic Union is moral virtue. Religion is moral virtue. If you say that only the headscarf is virtue, then Allah will give you no respite. I do not believe in the sincerity of anyone who does not espouse Turkish-Islamic Union.
