The most important sustenance in the world is love that stems from faith. Without it everything is over. Build as much bridges as you like, build as much roads, buildings as you like, it has no importance. For instance New York is an amazingly wealthy city but there are people committing suicide every single day. There are people committing suicide every other place in the world, people are using drugs.
The Mahdi (pbuh) will bring about modernity, beauty, love, friendship and brotherhood; he will break the chains on Muslims. He will bring about the understanding of Islam as it was in the time of the Companions of our Prophet (pbuh). The world will become a place like Heaven. This will certainly happen, even if they try to prevent it. God will create this beautiful outcome with His Name, “Al-Jabbar”.
Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will come as the vizier of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), that is what our Prophet (saas) foretold. In order to honor the Mahdi, in order to emphasize his greatness, Almighty God sends Jesus Messiah as his vizier. The greatness of the Mahdi could be appreciated from that alone. He is the last guide. He is the greatest guide, the greatest Saint of all times. That is to say, imam Mahdi is superior to the Companions.
Having a glorious, scary army is the Sunnah of our Prophet (saas). For instance, he didn't let the soldiers cut their mustaches short; they even grew their nails. The Companions of our Prophet (saas) had such a ravenous and scary appearance. They had handlebar moustaches reaching till the ends of their ears. Those who looked at them were shivering with fear, they feared them greatly. It would be great if our soldiers had such a staggering appearance. Especially regarding the PKK; our soldiers should be their nightmare.
It is of course very important to be at our Prophet (saas)'s elbow. It is a great comfort for the Companions of our Prophet (saas). Actually people do not know the Islamic community that well. Muslims are like a big family. If one has a mansion with thirty rooms for instance, he fills it will Muslims, the food is cooked for all of them. The goods are distributed. Trade is done together, everything is shared and done commonly. That is an unprecedented system.
Being called "crazy" shows the perfection of a Muslim's faith. Our prophet (saas) says, "A Muslim cannot attain perfection in faith unless he is called crazy." Actually, because of their loyalty to Islam, to the Qur'an, because of their enthusiasm, it is said, "If you had seen the Companions, you would have called them crazy." They distribute all they have, everything they own.
We are the radiant face of Islam for the whole world. When those who know Islam as a horrible, introverted, loveless system that has a grudge against women, that has turned life into a horror, see Islam as we live it, when they see Islam as it was lived at the time of the Companions, they feel an admiration for Islam. And they recognize that Islam is their salvation. Otherwise, they are all in misery.
The Islamic community is a festive community. Let us say you are walking in the street and you get tired. You go and knock the door of a random house and say, "As-Salam alaykum." You would be invited in and the host would welcome you, saying, "Come in and dine with us." When night falls, the host would ask you to stay the night and if you like it, you do. This is how the Muslim community is; this is how it was at the time of the companions of our Prophet (saas). Later on, these niceties were forgotten in time.
If you run after the transient world, God would make it constantly run away from you and the world would then become a trouble for you. However, the world would become beautiful with self-sacrificing people. For instance, our Prophet (saas) was very altruistic and selfless. His companions were very altruistic and selfless. None of them were self-seeking. Societies with self-seeking people collapse.
The Companions of our Prophet (saas) always strove for the sake of God. But the hypocrites always had excuses like ‘our houses are exposed' or ‘we would have come if we knew how’. However, if they were told that they would be given gold, they would have immediately obliged. That is because it would have served their interests. However, one's interests should always be in showing good morality; one should choose faith and reward from God instead of gold. Otherwise one would start to turn into an animal.
If you give fanaticism an inch, it takes a mile. It is very dangerous. The state must adopt a determined policy to spread modern thinking, a modern state structure and a modern conception of art. In other words, one must live by a modern Islam. What does modern mean? Like in the time of the Companions.
In the time of our Prophet, the families of the Companions did not want them to see our Prophet (saas); they made incredible pressure. In the time of the People of the Cave, the families of young people, their relatives and the majority of people were against religion and they put pressure on their children. Likewise, in the time of the Mahdi (pbuh) young people will follow the Mahdi despite their families’ and society’s pressure.
The irreligious try to intimidate Muslims. It is not becoming for a Muslim to accept being intimidated. The Companions were subjected to incredible torture and pressure of their families because they followed our Prophet (saas). They resisted all such pressure heroically. What makes a Muslim a hero and valiant is the sufferings he goes through. It is the ordeals he goes through for God’s approval. Those who leave Islam because they fear those who condemn them don’t deserve paradise in the hereafter.
