IF A PERSON FINDS FAITH TO BE DIFFICULT, THEN SATAN HARASSES HIM. FAITH IS QUITE EASY. A person only needs to leave himself to his natural state. He will leave his brain, spirit and mind to its natural state. IN HIS NATURAL STATE A PERSON GETS IN TOUCH WITH ALLAH. A PERSON CAN NOT GET IN TOUCH WITH ALLAH BECAUSE HE ASSUMES AN ATTITUDE IN WHICH HE SIDES WITH SATAN.
Some people are skeptical, some of them are timid, while some of them are introverted and hard to understand. A NATURAL PERSON IS VERY BEAUTIFUL. A person who expresses what he feels inside is beautiful. But of course I would not say that one would be incautious. One has to be cautious, but meanwhile he must be humanistic, reasonable. BEING WILD IS NOT BECOMING TO A WOMAN, IT IS A VERY ABNORMAL ACT.
Almighty Allah says; "If you love Me a lot, if you fear from Me, if you abide by the Qur'an, if you act sincerely, if you constantly keep your heart and mind with Me and repent, if you thank Allah, if you constantly praise Allah's supreme being saying "Allahu Akbar", if you constantly testify your removing any anthropomorphic elements or associations with Allah saying "Subhan'Allah", if you praise Me saying; "My Lord You are free of all kinds of flaws and shortcomings, Glory be to You", if you strive with all your might to praise Me and My Glory, no evil would ever fall to you. You will be at ease," says Allah. There is a secret in this.
A sincere, candid, high quality, classy, modern understanding of Islam; an understanding that takes arts and science as basis, that fears Allah, that completely submits to Allah, that acts according to the Qur'an, that sincerely interprets the Qur'an and acts according to whatever the Qur'an demands without making any additions or any subtractions is spreading like a snowball. As far as I see no one contravenes such an understanding of Islam.
Religion is very pure and simple. One should have good morals, one should be loving and sincere. Lawful deeds are defined anyway. There are many lawful acts, they are boundless. Unlawful deeds on the other hand are very few. They are defined in the Qur'an as well. One needs to keep away from them and that is it. You would be a good person, a loving person who submits himself to Allah, a person who loves Allah very much. You should not be wooly minded, you should just be honest.
The Qur'an informs us about what is auspicious and what is beneficial. The most beneficial thing to do is to strive to save the Hereafter of people and to give an intellectual struggle on the way of Allah. Or else it is not to become a businessman and to found holdings and operate touristic facilities and keep one's self with trade as some people claim. This is a highly insincere approach. Happiness comes with faith.
If one is sincere, he would understand the Qur'an anyway, such a person would understand the command of the Qur'an as well. A sincere person loves Allah very much, he loves the Qur'an very much, he loves the companions and he loves everyone. Such a person would be perfect with his humility and morality. The whole matter is about sincerity because Allah makes such a person feel the things that are wrong, and see the right things as well.
With sincere faith, even one person alone can dominate the world. For instance the Prophet Solomon (pbuh) was very faithful, Allah made him rule the world. Dhul’Qarnayn (pbuh) was alone, he was very devout and Allah made him rule the world. That is all. Patience, faith, sincerity and not minding the allurement of this world, that is all.
God is the One Who creates wisdom and wisdom is created every single moment. It has a constant flow, it does not remain stagnant inside the brain. People presume that wisdom can be preserved as if it is put inside a cube; actually that is not true. It is completely empty inside the brain. Wisdom constantly flows like a river, it is made to flow by God.
God would take away the foresight and perception of a person who is stealthy, skeptical, dark, ill-intentioned, dishonest, one that has malice in his heart, one who does not want the goodness of others, one who does not feel any inclination towards love in his heart. Such a person would start making incoherent movements. His glances would become distorted, his speech would become distorted, his reasoning would become disrupted. God would put obstacles in front of him and bring about exiguousness.
Let me give you a secret. God doesn’t say,” Those who have weapons, those who have power, those who have money and those who have political power will prevail in the world.” God doesn’t say ; ” Those who perform their prayers, those who fast will prevail in the world.” God says, “Those sincere servants of Mine will attain salvation and prevail in the world.” He only mentions the sincere ones.
Did the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) have tanks and cannonballs? No, he didn’t. Did he have thousands of students? No, he didn’t. Did he have money? No, he didn’t. What did he have? He had sincerity. He was the Mahdi of his time. God made him victorious. What condition does Almighty God has for that? One should be able to endure hardships, one should be patient in the face of hardships and sufferings. Or else no result can be attained if one tries to present himself as if he is facing hardships yet not really facing any hardships.
If you think devilishly, the deeper you think the more you get swamped by it. Thinking deeper is not in that sense: Thinking deeper means thinking sincerely. It means thinking with all one's sincerity, with all one's honesty, with good intentions, by thinking on God's side, thinking with love for God, never thinking anything against God.
There is no need to consume such an extraordinary amount of energy for attaining deep faith. If a person is very sincere, a deep faith would instantly be formed. They are imagining that religion is very difficult. They say, "You need to ponder deeply, you need to think deeply." Actually one cannot succeed at thinking deeply through mere willpower; God is the One Who will make one think deeply. A person does not have any individual power. What we need to do then is to be sincere. We have to be sincere and ask for it from God.
God prospers those who are sincere and who are devoted to God with a sincere heart, who have accepted ordeals and pains for God. Such people live a happy life. God says that He will open the way for those who are on His path and that He will protect such people. And He does so; that is clearly observed. He gives them victory. These are all explicit, clear miracles, tangible miracles. Nothing bad happens to such people.
Being sincere is living only for God. For, instance when one gets married, he gets married for God. When one opens a place of business , he does so for God. When one goes to school, he should do so for God. When one eats, he should eat for the good pleasure of God. Then his life will be plentiful and beautiful.
Almighty God always aims for sincere, exalted faith. When Almighty God sees sincere, lofty faith in the world, He increases the abundance on this world: When there is weakness in faith, God reduces that abundance on the world. That is why pure and sincere Muslims should continue this spiritual reinforcement with all their might.
“Sincerity” is a Word closely connected with the Qur'an. We could not know what sincerity is if we do not know the Qur'an. Sincerity means a person's not applying any pressure on his brain and thinking on the side of God in everything; it means his never expostulating on God- may God forbid, his never being troubled by God or never rebelling against God- may God forbid.
A great many people rebel against God or expostulate on God. They expostulate, saying, "He doesn't help me, He has taken my son away from me, He has taken my car away from me, He has taken my possessions from me." Who is the One Who gives you your child? God is. Who is the One Who takes him away from you? God is. I mean the expostulation here is very irrational; it is an act far removed from sincerity. God doesn't like such conduct.
Sincere people are beautiful; crooked people on the other hand are really ugly. People find ease and comfort in honesty. Lies distress people, make them feel suffocated. People are created weak anyway. It becomes devastating when all those negative things are loaded upon one and it deranges one's mind and [damages their] health.
It has nothing to do with showing a lot of effort. The whole point is to love God sincerely; to love God with a deep, profound love. If you love God, you are strong. I mean if you love God a lot, you would definitely be victorious. Look I am not saying that “if you believe in God”, I am saying “if you love God”. Actually to feel love, you have to believe in Him.
There is no place for superstitions in faith. Religion is very rationalistic; the miracles of the Qur'an, presented with scientific evidence and facts leading to faith, all conform with rationality. The path of reason should be opened. The way to think rationally should be demonstrated. The beauty of thinking conscientiously and sincerely should be taught. When one thinks sincerely, he would attain faith anyway.
It might appear as if a person loses a lot while acting in all sincerity; the fact is, however, that person gains a lot in secret. You look at that person and see that he gets into trouble and loses his goods, his means. However God eventually gives him abundance. In the meantime, the other one might think that he will attain goods and means by crushing his good conscience but the world escapes from him while he pursues worldly goals. That person would suffer enormously. That is a devastating groveling, a devastating chase.
Faith is the sincere belief in one's subconscious. Or else one's mind might come and go. I mean all kinds of opinions might pass through one's mind. For instance, one might think if something is right or wrong; these are ideas inside one's brain. Ideas would be like a storm in one’s mind. They have nothing to do with faith. They are called the whisperings of satan. Faith is something settled in, I mean a sincere conviction that is intertwined with, one's consciousness, one’s good conscience.
We have a responsibility to behave sincerely. God creates Heaven even in Hell for those who are sincere. He gives blessings to sincere Muslims from where they least expect it. All those are hidden miracles of the Qur'an. People of faith understand this and see the covert signs of God, but heedless people would not see them.
Let me give you an important secret. You should not forget this secret throughout your life; God would never put a sincere Muslim with an open conscience in to Hell and no such person would ever be tormented. If one gives a sincere, determined struggle on the Path of God, even if he lives in a hellish environment in this world, God would make him live like he is in Heaven. That is an amazing demonstration of the power of God.
If a person is insincere, he will want the life of the unbelievers. On the Internet, in books, everywhere he looks, he will search for that kind of life. He will look around to find unbelievers because he admires them. He won’t be able to forget about his past, or his unbeliever friends. He will try to be happy with them.
An insincere person will try to see Muslims as bad people and unbelievers as good people; he begins to turn everything upside down in his mind. But when a Muslim sees the existence of God with all its glory, which happens naturally when a person looks around himself sincerely, he will immediately want to follow the wisdom in the Qur'an.
In the communication of Islam’s message, sincerity and wisdom are the most effective factors. Knowledge or modernism alone will not suffice. One needs true, deep wisdom to explain faith in God. The most important thing is having a sincere belief, sincerely loving God, sincerely fearing God. The message of Islam cannot be communicated with a snobbish, pretentious attitude. Our Prophet (saas) didn't attend any universities, but achieved a world-wide effect with his wisdom stemming from his sincere faith. The Prophet Moses wasn't overtly eloquent, but he was very sincere. Because of his sincerity and deep faith, he was able to influence everyone. The Prophet Jesus and the Mahdi (peace be upon them both) will make Islamic morals triumph worldwide with their sincere faith. Jesus will not be a university graduate and the Mahdi will not have madrassa training, but they will make Islam triumph with sincere faith.
God attaches the most importance to deep faith and sincerity. God bestows success to those that have a deep love for God. When one loves God with a sincere, deep faith, God will create causes that will help the success of that person. When there are people with a true, deep faith -even if they’re few in number- Islamic morals will reign. God rewards the sincerity of believers.
People love sincere, wise people who have a deep faith in God and they don't like those who try to show off with their knowledge. Idolaters think that God’s messengers must be well educated, etc. But the important thing is the insight and wisdom given by God. No prophet ever graduated from a university, but they were all very sincere. God rewards sincere faith incredibly. Meaningless knowledge is worthless in the Sight of God; it is faith that makes knowledge meaningful. God will not ask people about the languages they spoke.
Speaking Arabic is not a requisite for interpreting the Qur’an correctly and for fully abiding by the Qur’an. Had speaking Arabic been a necessity, millions of Arabs would be the best at it. What is important is to attain sincere and profound faith. That is only possible with facts leading to faith and with faith attained through reason.
