In the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as) everyone will be friends with one another. Having bilateral love with someone is so easy. There will only be one person as a leader, that is it. There will be a smart person; that is to say, Hazrat Mahdi (as). When there is no leader, those manners, that spirit, that personality, that electricity can not be transmitted.
You are talking about peace; you are talking about an ocean of blood. You mention social justice, but there is the dictatorship of the proletariat. The owners of the dictatorship live a life of milk and honey while the people lead miserable lives. The public have always been poor. Also in China and Russia people used to live a dog’s life. But this (social justice) is applied in Islam in the real sense of the word. AND NOTICE THERE IS SOMETHING ELSE THAT DOES NOT EXIST IN COMMUNISM; LOVE AND COMPASSION.
Protecting peace, love and affection and improving them is not an easy task. You have to pay meticulous attention. First of all you must be extremely patient. You will be compassionate and insightful. He must think deeply and be self-sacrificing. He will think the good of others. This is how they are preserved. Otherwise the stability may be disrupted at any moment.
THE WORLD DOES NOT NEED ANY AFFLICTIONS. THE WORLD NEEDS LOVE. WE ARE ALREADY AT THE END TIMES, THE DAY OF JUDGMENT IS CLOSE. The world has gone rotten. Notice that neither real artists appear nor any new sheikhs. There are no theatrical productions, they are unable to draw any pictures. There is not a single quality painting, not a single sculpture. They are all awful.
Muslims should have referee, a loving father, a leader who distributes love. There is the need for a leader who would lead them towards that friendship, that understanding spirit, one that would calm the tensions, that would remove the spirit of fights and inject them the spirit of love; someone they love very much. And that person is the Mahdi (pbuh).
Islam is an inclusive religion. Islam is practiced through acts. In the spirit of the system of the Mahdi, there is an inclusive attitude towards all countries. The King Messiah, that is the Mahdi, comes to the whole World. That is the reference in the Qur'an, that is the explanation of the Torah and that is the explanation of our Prophet (saas).
Almighty Allah says; " There is not one of the People of the Book who will not believe in him before he dies," for Jesus Messiah. What does this mean? The freemasons will come to believe. The Buddhists will come to believe, everyone will believe in him, says Almighty Allah. But how will the Jesus Messiah behave? He will treat everyone with love and compassion. In his time the Jesus Messiah embraced everyone, he was compassionate towards everyone.
Being a teacher of love; this is the mission of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). Breaking up fights and enabling friendship. That is it. Or else Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will not interfere with the affairs of the government. Showing love, mercy, brotherhood, peace, friendship, goodness, beauty, love of Allah, fear of Allah; that is the sole mission of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).
Mahdi (pbuh) is a man of love. He is the key of the deadlock of persecution; he solves it, and thus people would be delivered from that chain of persecution. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) has no political aspect. He will neither be a prime minister nor a president. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is the teacher of love. He will not enter into the realm of politics, he will not enter in that arena until the end of his life.
Peace and security lies with the Unity of Islam and the system of Mahdi. The system of the Mahdi will ensure love covering all around, peace spreading around the world, wars coming to an end and will bring an end to the production of weapons. What will the weapon factories steer for? They'll start producing radios, televisions, cars.. Instead of manufacturing tanks, they'll manufacture cars for those in need. Instead of manufacturing canon balls, they'll manufacture refrigerators. Instead of producing mines, they'll produce beautiful foods.
People get cancer out of lovelessness, distress and sorrows, they get ulcers. They get a thousand and one different diseases and mental illnesses. A great majority of people, 70-80% of them use antidepressants. However if love were to prevail, there would be no need for such remedies. There would be no need for those antidepressants. Lovelessness is not something a human body can handle.
Europe wants the Unity of Islam, America wants it as well, but they want the governance to be in the hands of the Mahdi (pbuh). If compassion, love, peace, brotherhood, decency, science, aesthetics, democracy prevails; if such a guarantee is given to Europe and to the United Nations, they would have the Unity of Islam established right away.
Never leaving love by no manner of means is a characteristic of Paradise. That is because love is never left aside in the Paradise. In paradise love will never be left aside for all eternity. That is the greatest blessing. That is the greatest beauty. Otherwise Paradise will not have a meaning without love. Because we love Allah, we will love everything in the Paradise.
At the time of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) all the world will run towards Islam. Christians and Jews will be content with his justice as well. Everyone will live by their religion freely, there will be peace and abundance, wars will come to an end, weapons will be done away with, blood will not be shed, there will be no terror, no anarchy. A welfare, beauty, gayety will enfold the whole world. Love will embrace the whole world. There will be no place left without love.
The antichrist(dajjal) struck people from love. It struck people from compassion and mercy. It darkened people's hearts and faces. It has extensively disrupted their appearances and their souls. Mahdi will correct this scourge of the Dajjal (antichrist) in a very short time like the rain of mercy insha'Allah.
Darwinist-materialist education brings about lovelessness. Without love, no affection, no friendship, no brotherhood can be established; ideas are not tolerated, without love there is no tolerance for ideas. A formidable anger, a formidable rage, a formidable hatred and lovelessness scorches the hearths of people. As the Darwinist-Materialist education continues, this exiguousness, this dire spirit would not be removed from us, may Allah forbid.
In respect of solution for terror; scientific struggle with compassion, love, reason, mercy, by putting out an effort without offending anyone, with a kind hearted approach is the key and scientific explanations would solve the matters fundamentally. Apart from that, if the other side feels like things are going on in an assertive manner, turning into a war of pride, it would be very difficult for them to be convinced. Scientific explanations and addressing the good conscience would be enough.
A Muslim would be like the Prophet (saas) in the way he performs his prayers, in the way he fasts. He would be like the Prophet (saas) with his love with his affections, with his compassion. He tries to be like the Prophet (saas). Even if he cannot be completely the same as the Prophet (saas), he tries to be like him. But in the main lines, he will be similar to the Prophet (saas).He will be similar to the Prophet (saas) in the way he strives in the path of Allah, in the way he communicates religion.
The Muhajirun (refugees) and Ansar (helpers to the Muhajirun); we will be like the Companions. We will take their love for women, their love for children, their love for people, their honesty, their decency, their well-intentions and all sorts of beautiful feelings they have as an example for us and we will try to be like them. We will strive to live like them.
There is love in Islam, there is compassion, there is protection of those in need, there is forgiveness, there is good opinion, there is constant stressing on goodness and abundance. In Islam there is emphasis on all that are beautiful, all that make people happy, all that please people and on all kinds of beauty and there is an effort to attain them.
Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will not enter the realm of politics. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is a radiant persona who is inseparable with love, brotherhood and peace. He is a spiritual guide. I mean he is a teacher, whose soul has attained spiritual satisfaction, who teaches love and affection from his house. He only teaches love to the world of politics.
Those who love me should also love Imam Rabbani, Abdul-Qadir Gilani, they should love the Bediuzzaman, they should love Sheikh Nazim al-Qubrusi, the sheikh of Shahs. And they should love them all very dearly. They should feel a great love for them all. How nice it is that you draw inspiration, you take richness from them, you take their light and that nourishes your heart.
There are many animals in the Heaven, there are all sorts of animals. They all will be speaking, they all will be intelligent. We will feel love to our hearts' content. All the animals we love will be there. All the animals that we miss, all the animals that we have had in our minds in our childhood, they are all there, insha'Allah.
I believe that backing up America will be a very wise movement. It is not right to ask for the destruction of any country. We need to back them up and want them to be better. For instance these are great plane trees; let us give them water, let us give them sunlight, let their leaves grow, let the World be beautiful. They are the ornaments of this World. Why should we take that ornament away? These beautiful thoughts should be the debt of everyone's good conscience.
Hazrat Mahdi and the Prophet Jesus Messiah (pbuh) are people of love. They have nothing to do with material things like Money and possessions, neither Mahdi nor the Prophet Jesus Messiah (pbuh) have no business with the World. They are all about love, peace, brotherhood, friendship, justice. These are all about these. They are the teachers of love, insha'Allah.
People are open to indoctrination, if you indoctrinate war, they tend towards war, if you indoctrinate peace, they tend towards peace. If you indoctrinate hatred, they tend towards hatred, if you indoctrinate love, they tend towards love. Human soul is prone to love. This indoctrination of war found strength to an extent because those who indoctrinate war are loud. Or else if we were to talk about peace and love to the youth and to everyone in the society, everyone would accept enthusiastically.
Without love of Allah, without love for people, without compassion, without mercy, this one starts bombing that one, and that one starts bombing this one. The main characteristic of the antichrist (dajjal) is bloodshed, cruelty and violence. They are after blood like vampires. With the unity of Islam, with love, with the system of the Mahdi, this bloodshed will stop.
We should show compassion to Christians. They are very inoffensive, they are very dear. Very rarely, they have small churches here and there. There are people who make fun of them and some who attempt to batter them. They are striving to protect their beliefs in Allah and to express their love for Allah under very difficult conditions. You should be very compassionate towards them. Treat them with compassion and love. Our brothers and sisters should protect and watch over them everywhere.
They have attempted to set Alawites against the Sunnis. We said; “We love Alawites very dearly, we love Shias very dearly, we love Wahabbis dearly, we would never let anyone say a word against them.” We have thus wiped out that mentality as well. With this determination we are walking on a new path and we are moving forward every single day.
There is no violence or terror in Islam. There is love, mercy and friendship in Islam. Why does Allah give Heaven to us? Had Allah asked for terror, He would have given that in the Heaven as well. Allah wants love, compassion, peace and security. Allah tells us to greet each other with “salam.” What does “salam” mean? It means wishing safety and wellbeing.
The system of the Mahdi only focuses on where we can find love, on where we can find mercy and where we can find compassion. It focuses on how to attain friendship, brotherhood, companionship, on how to make advancements in artistry and science? That is what the system of the Mahdi is interested in.
The system of the Mahdi does not attend to politics. Mahdi is a teacher of love. The system of the Mahdi is merely a person who encourages love, peace, brotherhood, companionship, goodness, well intentions, arts, science and similar matters; it is a person who intensely injects that spirit to the public and a group, a community around him. That is the essential foundation of the system of the Mahdi.
Let us embrace our Christian brothers and sisters fervently with love. Our brothers should protect and watch over them everywhere. In the streets, in the malls, they should love and respect them everywhere. They should thus keep their bonds of neighborhood strong. Allah wants us to treat Christians compassionately. Allah wants us to treat the People of the Book compassionately; so we should treat Jews compassionately as well.
It is not possible to procure religiousness through governments; that can only be made possible with the system of the Mahdi. The system, the spirit that would come about in religiousness is love. I mean the system of the Mahdi brings about a lot of love, compassion, mercy, understanding, tolerance, sweetness, broadness of perspective, arts and science, it would bring about social justice; none of which can be attained through impositions. In the system of the Mahdi there is no place for impositions.
Endearing, affectionate outpost should be built for the Gendarme. We need to change the soul of the outposts. They should turn into touristic facilities. Let there be a restaurant, a shopping center, a library inside the outpost. Their only reason for existence is to protect honest, good people; that should be ensured.
If in an environment, there is no place for the arts, if there is no love; if there is only pain and horror, if there is destitute, then there would neither be industry, nor wealth, nor joy in that environment. There will be nothing. No matter how much you help them. I mean it would be like giving blood to a corpse. Give a thousand liters if you like, that corpse would not be revived. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), Jesus Messiah (pbuh) and the Unity of Islam are the only way to bring life to that environment. There is no other way.
Those who love Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) would also love our Prophet (saas). If one loves our Prophet (saas), he should also love Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). Our Prophet (saas) has passed away but Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is a part of him; he is his son. If you love the Prophet(saas) you should take his son alive as basis. And you attempt to make him forgotten that means you do not feel love for our Prophet (saas).
Alevis are very dear and they are very devout people. First of all their souls are very open to love and arts. Think how enthusiastic the love of God would be in a person whose soul is open to arts and love. Because they love God fervently, they feel love for arts and they are in love with the Prophet (saas), they are in love with Hazrat Ali (ra). Alevis are the ornaments of Turkey, they are the ornaments of this world, they are such radiant people.
One can never be bored of love or affection; one can never be tired of the love of God. However the feeling of weariness, boredom exists in the human soul. Muslims are able to overcome this feeling with their faith. For that reason an ordinary man gets tired of his wife, from his beloved ones but a Muslim would not because of their faith. However in disbelief, weariness enwraps a person very easily. With the power of faith weariness is crashed. It can be crashed in proportion to that person's faith.
We are sent to this world to serve God, to serve religion. We are sent here to experience good morality, love and loyalty. Those who are after worldly interests are living in a parasitic mindset. Actually in that sense, no one would ever die of hunger or sleeplessness. A Muslim would never covet any worldly interests. He would submit himself wholly to 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.
Goodness and compassion is hard. Mercy and love is hard. But offending and destroying is very easy. One goes and takes a rifle in his hand and shoots at people. That is it. But loving demands effort, it demands patience. It requires will power, it requires generosity, it requires determination at the highest level, it requires perseverance at the highest level.
Muslims love for each other is a religious obligation defined in the Qur'an. Almighty God brings some from the land, some from the air and some from the sea to serve. Those in the air wouldn't be hostile to those in the land and those in the land would not be hostile to those in the sea. All of them are the lions of God. All of them are valuable.
A Muslim would never be bored of loving, he/she would never be bored of love or the one he/she loves; that is attained through faith. But if there is a point of view focusing on flesh and bones, of course you would be bored. Such a person is after the flesh and does not love. But a Muslim is after the soul, heart and love.
When we love a person we love him/her for the good pleasure of God. What does the good pleasure of God mean? It stems from the services rendered for Islam. Does he/she unite Muslims? Does he/she ensure unity? Does he/she work to quell dissension? Does he/she develop an attitude against division? If we see all these in a person, we should love that person for the good pleasure of God. We feel that love as a religious observation.
Love is a requirement. If you attempt to attain something with egocentricity, the egocentricity you will be facing would suffocate you. If you step up cunningly, even more cunning ones would suffocate you. If you attempt to play tricks, the one you are facing would play ten times more tricks. Beauty cannot be attained with tricks, with rouses and with fraud; it can be attained with honesty, sincerity and love.
The system of the Mahdi is an environment of brotherhood and friendship, it is an environment of love. People would not be swaggering, they would not suffer. At the moment, cocaine, heroin, weed, alcohol are all consumed like water. Why is this? It is because of the lack of love. People start using drugs to be saved from the pain of that scarcity of love.
People are always alone nowadays; they have no one to love them, they have no friends, no companions. As a matter of fact, passion is a very beautiful feeling; love is a very beautiful feeling; affection is a very beautiful feeling; loving and being loved is very nice, respect is very nice, being appreciated is very nice. Many people do not appreciate one another, they do not respect each other and that is horrible.
The PKK used fear in the beginning, they created a foundation with terror and violence but now they are approaching the Kurds with love, compassion and a spirit of fellowship. Our state should also approach our Kurdish brothers with faith, with the Qur'an, with the moral values of the Qur'an and with love by very strongly implementing the theme of the brotherhood of Muslims.
As the level of welfare increases, the number of those who patiently endure difficulties or those who endure pain decreases. Such an environment does not help the cultivation of art. Those who are brought up in poverty, those who endure pain and difficulties often perform art quite beautifully. God gives pain and ordeals for love to deepen. The more one endures difficulties, the more he knows love, the more he knows profundity.
Mahdi (pbuh) is a man of love. He is not a stern, despotic, domineering person. He is a man living in his home. He is a man who functions as a supporting wall for the Islamic world constantly pointing out the importance of love. Mahdi (pbuh) will also not interfere with the government, he will not interfere in politics.
Believing in God is what makes people happy the most, it is what beautifies them the most, it is what brings about plentitude and abundance, it is what brings about joy. It is the greatest beauty of Heaven for all eternity. Having faith in God is the greatest blessing of all, and so is love as a beauty having faith in God bestows upon us. This is the source of life; it is the cause of life.
Love is a joy, it is a blessing, it is a pleasure, it is happiness. Still there are some people who give up love. Hatred is very distressing, it is painful. One would feel unbearable pains in hatred. What is the sense in this? Handle everything with love. Why is it necessary for you to be in conflict, why is it necessary for you to get in a fight?
Almighty God gave the feeling of being appreciated and liked even to the birds, the flowers, the bees, the bugs and all beings; they all love this feeling. God wants to be loved as well. God wants His creations to be appreciated and liked. Liking, loving and appreciating each other are God's wishes for Muslims.
Our people don't want to be glowered at. They want to be respected, loved and shown compassion; they would side with those who show them love and compassion. People would be scared of those who smart -mouth them, they would be uneasy around such people. They would be on pins and needles around those who look down on them.
Love should be espoused with determination and perseverance. Advocating fighting and conflict appears to be easy and reasonable to some people and they assume that espousing love is difficult, meaningless and impossible. Actually, they thus leave behind the easiest and the most beautiful way of life and dive into the most evil, most difficult and the cruelest of all choices.
People are prone to love. If you show the least bit of love they would instantly run towards that side. If you approach them with brotherhood, if you call them to peace and friendship they would instantly accept that call. They feel down when both sides refuse to accept because of pride. However if one side were to say it loud they would all accept it. But you would have to be a little bit insistent.
Those looking for atrocities are worthy of atrocities. If you encourage persecution, if you encourage scourges and bloodshed, those scourges suffocate you. That bloodshed drowns you. If you had approached them with love, they would have come to you with love. You've asked for blood and are faced with blood.
There is no weariness in the language of love. There has to be determination in peace, in love. For instance, one talks about love for two years and then gets tired of doing so in the third year and gives up. He talks about peace for five years and then cannot keep on doing so in the sixth year: That is not acceptable. One has to advocate peace and love until the end of his life. That is a religious obligation.
If you become fixated on the love of a person, it would be idolatry. You should love with the love of God. Even the songs are about separation. Why don’t you love as the manifestation of God? If you love as the manifestation of God, you would not feel the need for such songs. You would not feel all that pain.
Ultimately man is a weak creature. He dies and is buried in a grave. When he loses a loved one, he loses himself, saying, “I am dying, I am burning inside out, I am all done!” What would you say to that beloved one in the grave? You would flee in fear when you see that body in the grave. Well then, Who is the One to be loved? God is. Who is the One Who shows you that image? God.
Fear of God is required for love; love of God is required. Love is not for the bone and flesh; the manifestations of God are loved. What would you love in someone if you simply think that person as someone who will die and be diminished? The Infinite One would be loved and that Infinite One is God and one can only feel love for another as a manifestation of God.
If you teach hatred for Israel to your people, the whole Islamic world would also learn hatred for each other. If you do not love the children of the Prophet Abraham (pbuh), how will you love Muslims? You should love the children of the Prophet Moses (pbuh); you should love the Armenians, Greeks, Catholics, Protestants, so that you could also love Muslims. They all are the servants of Almighty God.
Women are superior in love, in mercy, in compassion, in quality, in beauty. Women are clever and very intelligent creatures. Men tend to think more superficially, their way of thinking is more plain: Women, on the other hand, are able to think very creatively and they are much stronger than men in their talents and tendency towards the arts, beauty and aesthetics.
The power of loving other countries, other nations, is insufficient. If you do not love the other servants of God, you cannot love Turkey either. Just be sincere. Love Syrians, Arabs, Greeks, Russians, Iranians, Europeans, Americans. They all are the servants of God, all colorful, how nice this is. God created this as a blessing.
It is clearly understood that the year 2015 will be a year in which terror and pains will be experienced without love, without the fear of God, without mercy. These incidents will go on until God draws attention to the system of the Mahdi. This will go on until people see the system of the Mahdi as a means for salvation.
There is no place for conflicts, there is no place for hatred in this world. We will teach love to the world. Hatred is very painful, it is agonizing, it is tiresome and disgusting; love on the other hand is very beautiful. Israel, Jordan and all those places are incredibly beautiful. Make peace, hold on to each other, be brothers.
There is richness in unity. For instance, the European countries have united but because the bond they have between them is not a bond of faith, because it is not a bond of love, they are not successful. When the Islamic world unites, the bond they have between them will be a bond of love and there will be no borders, no visas, no passports and thus both trade and friendship will easily be established and sustained. There will be a sound, vivid, lively life based on love and generosity, far removed from selfishness and egoism.
Lack of love and egoism drags people into fragmentation. Love on the other hand brings about integration. Would anyone want to be separated from his loved one? One would only want to be separated from those he doesn’t love. One would not want to see those he hates. All these fragmentations in the world stem from a lack of love.
A lack of love prevails in the world. People want separation because lovelessness prevails. They want separation and they hate others. For instance, they hate the country they live in, they hate one another. People living in the same cities hate each other. Families hate each other, people hate one another. The issue of love should be solved before all else.
Freedom of thought does not mean insulting everyone, upsetting everyone, hurting them and attempting to suffocate their joy and love. Love should be taken as basis. The concept of freedom of thought is sacred; that is okay, but love is even more sacred, kindness is even more sacred, respect is even more sacred.
Diseases progress when the resistance of the body drops. People should be jolly, they should be full of love. Hatred fuels illnesses, it causes cancer to progress. They should not keep hatred or rage in their hearts. Love nourishes the body. They should look at everything as a manifestation of God and approach all things with love.
The lover would do all kinds of sacrifices for their beloved one. If need be, he would sacrifice his own life for God, and protect and watch over the beloved one. He would take great care to prevent her honor, her pride, her chastity, and to prevent any harm to her mind or her body. He would pay attention to her food, her drink, her sleep and everything about her. This is the sign of a lover. He would protect her at all costs.
A lover should be willing to risk death for God and should want to sacrifice himself for God: He should be willing to sacrifice himself for God. He should put his life on the line. Some people are very fond of their lives; they want to avoid even the slightest conflicts of interest, they do not want any harm to come to them and say, "I come first." Your loved one should come the first. I mean some people do not want to give anything of theirs, they do not want to present anything of theirs to their loved ones. They are always after saving themselves.
Islam is where love and affection can be experienced in the most beautiful fashion. Muslims are in love with Muslims; they never put a limit to their love because they love with the love of God. Would one be surprised at the love of God? One should not be surprised at the love for other people either. That would always increase. A Muslim could never say, "I love God this much," as that love is endless.
Love is the goal of the Paradise. Let us imagine that one goes to Paradise. Let us assume that there are rivers, fruit trees, mansions; there are vineyards and gardens, there are people, but there is no love. What would such a place be? May God forbid, that would be Hell. It will be Paradise only with love.
"God loves the steadfast." That is how we recognize love. If one cannot be steadfast, that means he does not have love. For instance, one might have a loved one but it is important for him to preserve that love; I mean love cannot be for only two days. Some are like this, they love only for a day. They have love for a night. They have a fancy to be blunt. But a Muslim wants love for a lifetime and for all eternity.
If a person does not believe in God, it would be impossible to find it in one's soul to trust that person. How could one see the other person if he does not possess the mind to see God? If one does not have it in his heart to be thankful to God, how could it be possible for him to thank another person? How could one be loyal to a servant of God if he cannot be loyal to God? It is faith that ensures the energy and nobility of love.
Love is something that widens as one uses his mind. It develops in proportion to one's mind. For instance, you act loyally and the love you receive increases. You show compassion and the love you receive increases. You act patiently and the love you receive increases. You protect and watch over others, the love you receive increases. You think deeply and act considerate, the love you receive increases. You talk kindly and it increases; you refrain from telling lies and it increases. You constantly act honestly and it increases. You constantly approach others warmly with good intentions and it increases. One would detest the other if he sees anything contrary.
There are some conditions for the union of a woman and a man. First of all the woman should feel a deep love for that man, she should have a deep respect; she should value and trust that man. She should see that man as her lawful spouse and feel passion in her heart. Only then God could give a feeling of contentment. Attacking the bone and flesh of a woman as if she is a dog is a very atrocious behavior.
One says, "I do love my child madly." God is the One Who shows that child to you, God is the One Who created your child. The fact is that it is the manifestation of God that you are holding on to, not your child. God manifests Himself in that child and reveals Himself as your child and that is what you actually are holding on to.
Give your love to God. He gives his love directly to his child and fails to say, "My Lord, how beautiful You have created my child, how beautiful You manifest Yourself." That is when God gives a lot of troubles. A thousand an done different torments. God either takes away that child from him or gives him a disease or some trouble, or takes away his riches from him. Why do you not say, "O Lord, thanks be to You. How beautiful You create beauties. These are all Your manifestations"?
Life turns into a nightmare if one remains aloof to religion, to Islam, to fear of God, to love of God. They do not say a single word about God. Just say "God" for once. Would they cause you any pain? Just say "God" for once - nothing would happen. They do not say it and the result is an inconceivable distress, an inconceivable tension. There is zero love. There is nothing in them to call love; love is extinct for them. They have no respect either; they have completely lost the feeling of respect.
Religion is quite easy and plain. There is love, compassion, friendship, brotherhood, forgiveness, generosity, self-sacrifice, bravery. How nice generosity is; for instance, there is a person you love and you see that he doesn't have anything. You act generously and it makes him happy and pleased. That would do you good as well.
The Names “Rahman, Rahim” are refreshing. They express refreshment. But in the Name "Al-Kahhar" love is hidden. God damns the unbelievers and saves Muslims. He takes Muslims' revenge; God takes the revenge of all those He loves. The Name Al-Kahhar is also a sign of love. His damning unbelievers stems from God's love for Muslims. That is why there is a hidden love in it.
Muslims should love one another. If they do not love each other what good would possessions do? Let us say that you have piled up goods everywhere, let us say you have stocked oil here, sugar and jam there. You will simply gain weight, die and nothing good would come from it. You should distribute that wealth and give everyone.
Radicals assume that talking in an all-knowing manner would disseminate Islam. Islam would never be disseminated in this manner. People would like to see your sincere love. They would want to see your clean-cut clothes, your cleanliness, your liveliness, your effort to beautify life. These things show Islam applied in practice. When they see them, they embrace Islam as you tell them.
If you protect the needy, what would they feel for you? They would love you. What would be the first feeling they would feel? Love. For instance, you give them a gift and they thank you. What is thanks? Their eyes sparkle. Why? Out of love. Love would be formed in their hearts towards you instantly. Our Prophet (saas) says "...give presents to each other as that increases mutual love." What is the goal here? Love.
God says; "Make allowances for people, command what is right, and turn away from the ignorant." What happens when we make allowances for people? The obstacles before love is removed. Love unites. "… and turn away from the ignorant." Ignorance depresses people. Ignorance suffocates love. When you turn away from the ignorant you would be protecting love. "Command what is wrong." What happens when you command right? Love increases, love develops.
The whole of the Qur'an is based on love. But if you directly present love, you would be entering a great beauty right from the center. That is why a way of explaining aimed directly on love, rationality and spirit is needed. Whichever verse you open and read you will see that they all aim for love.
What does forgiving mean? It serves love. Without forgiveness you become angry, you get cross, you reproach others and severe your connections with the concerned. When one severs connections with one person and then the other, what happens? He remains alone. This is the disaster cast upon the whole world. This time they start keeping dogs and cats at their homes as their sole companions. This is what happens without love, without heeding the Qur'an.
Love is a very engrossing, a very amazing feeling. It is not like eating or drinking. It is the most pleasing blessing. If one asks, "Would you prefer eating or love?" It is love. If one asks, " Would you like us to give you a yacht or love?" The answer is love. What good would come out of a yacht? It is just a huge wooden thing. Think about going aboard in the middle of the sea? What would you do if there is no love? What good would that do? Or else let us imagine that you are given a castle but there is no love in it; that castle would turn into a giant prison. It would do no good.
In the beginning of the verses of the Qur'an, God's Names Rahman and Rahim are recited. "Bismillahirrahmanirrahim". Rahman and Rahim, God; meaning God, the One Who knows and shows love very well and the One Who wants love from us. "Rahman" because He is the Protective, He is the One Who watches over, He is the One Who forgives, He is the One Who wants good for people.
