ALLAH MAKES HIM THE MAHDI ONLY BECAUSE HE TOLERATES SUFFERING AND TROUBLE, AND BECAUSE OF HIS SINCERE LOVE OF ALLAH. In a time span of ten thousand, twenty thousand years, Allah grants that blessing, the blessing of being the Mahdi, only to him. Only because of his endurance to that hardship and trouble.
Mahdi (pbuh) will suffer oppression and hardships. In the World of souls Allah asks him "Will you be able to endure these hardships?" And he says; "I will my Lord. With honor and pride."Mahdi is sent to this World 6000 years after the World of souls and fulfills the promise he made in the World of souls.
One should improve himself even further, increase his knowledge, memorize the Qur’an. One should try and put every verse of the Qur’an into practice, enforce his patience, strengthen his will-power, strengthen his faith. One should widen and strengthen his submission to God and root the love of this world out of his heart. One should not be affected by the ignorant ones who forget about God.
"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.
There is no patience in Heaven, there is no courage, there is no reason to be courageous. You cannot be patient, courageous, brave. There is nothing to resign one's self to. Purity, self-sacrifice, none of those exist in Heaven. It is the abode of fun. Of course there is being thankful and praising, there is seeing the Manifestations of God and loving.
Muslims should refrain from falling into disputes and quarreling among themselves. Before all else God deems that unlawful. "Obey God and His Messenger and do not quarrel among yourselves lest you lose heart and your momentum disappear. And be steadfast. God is with the steadfast. " (Surat Al-Anfal, 46) Yet God says that He will punish such acts in this world as well. God says firstly that they will lose heart and that their momentum would disappear. God says that these will happen to those who quarrel among themselves as a preliminary trouble; they lose heart and lose their momentum. So what should a Muslim do in such a situation? He will be steadfast. God protects and watches over those who are steadfast.
Something happens and we act patiently. But we also reinforce our patience phase by phase. What is this, then? This is education. An education for what? An education for Heaven. God chooses a handful of Muslims and educates them here. When they are directly put in Heaven, what happened to the Prophet Adam (pbuh) happens. It doesn't work that way, that is to say. With the education given the mind settles, the personality develops and one starts appreciating the blessings of God.
The blather of unbelief is so difficult that it is a trial in this world. It necessitates patience, that is for one. Secondly it necessitates attention. From which point that impertinent attitude is to be refuted should be investigated separately. These are not always from the same point of view, they all have to be proven with verses and then a rationale should be propounded.
Some people never accept patience and ordeals, yet ask directly for blessings. That is unacceptable. You can neither attain Heaven like that nor attain the good pleasure of God. This is a place of trial not a place of fun. Almighty God says, "If We had desired to have some amusement, We would have derived it from Our Presence, but We did not do that." Heaven is the place of amusement, there is no such thing in this world.
A Heaven resided in by robots is not an environment God likes, God doesn't want robots. One who hasn't proven his loyalty, his patience or his courage wouldn't have a feeling of self-worth in that sense. That means he couldn't regard himself as worthy and beautiful if he didn't make sacrifices, if he didn't act generously, if he didn't strive on the path of God, if he didn't do anything to show his love.
Without love, without passion, without profundity, without real love; what are you looking for, everything loses its meaning. You know as some say, those left behind are beastly people. They are so repulsive, so disturbing to us, we have trouble calling them humans. But if one is self-sacrificing, courageous, patient, determined and brave we feel an admiration for him.
What is perfect morality? It is patience, compassion, self-sacrifice, honesty, bravery and loyalty. Without fear of God, one would fall into heedlessness. For instance, one might say that he loves God but not perform prayers, saying, "I love God, God doesn't need my prayers." He might have a lot of money but not give alms, saying, "Those in need can find it elsewhere. I do love God and money makes me happy, it helps me be close to God." Or perhaps, one does not act bravely, saying, "I should not risk my life, I am living nicely here." But in fear of God one shows courage.
Loyalty is for God. The cost of loyalty is very hard for a faithless person. It would get a person into trouble. It brings plenty and radiance to Muslims, it brings beauty. It is an immense beauty and bravery. Every single minute one shows patience would shatter his bones and cause a great suffering. Patience is shown only with faith. That is why people are obliged to the Qur'an.
The best attitude that can be adopted against egocentricity and haughtiness is to be submissive towards God, to put trust in God, to be patient and humble and to avoid being egocentric. The shortest remedy to that in the Qur'an is self-criticism. One should criticize himself both while he is alone and while he is in the company of others.
God has given very nice secrets that would keep one's mind sane. Before all else, one's commitment to God would keep away all immorality, all abnormality. Putting one's trust in God would take away the torment one does to himself. When he becomes patient, he would become friends with everyone around. When one is loyal, he would attain a personality everyone would love. When one criticizes himself, he keeps his sanity intact. When one is criticized by others, he becomes a rational, stable and loveable person.
Satan, the self, dissentious people, blood-shedders, warmongers, thieves, evil people; all are a part of the trial. "If it weren't for them..." some people say. They will always exist. If the trial exists, so will they. What you must do is to respond to them patiently through wisdom and willpower and defeat them.
