IF ONE HAS A PROFOUND LOVE FOR ALLAH IN ONE’S HEART, THAT IS WHAT WE CALL FAITH. If you tell someone whose faith has not yet been perfected that this and that and the other thing are prohibited, you are actually doing harm, and it is of no use. One must first bring someone to belief through the signs leading to faith.
Normally no man can be irreligious. Technically in the creation of man, in his brain structure, there does not exist such a system. That is to say, even that person who says that he fiercely denies Allah, absolutely believes in Allah. He harbors doubts and gives a 50 percent chance to it. And that is faith.
Allah creates human beings as cruel and ignorant. That is why people look at others and make errors. They say, “That person has no faith, the other is an imposter and the other is abnormal. In the verse Allah says that the majority of people do not have faith, and those who have faith ascribe partners to Allah. This is the provision of Allah. There is nothing to be astonished with it.
It is important to have a good grasp of Allah. People want to learn how to pray or how to take ablution first. But first, do you believe in Allah? You could simply shut yourself up and stand up and it would not be a prayer. First you need to have faith. Praying would not be a real prayer before having faith. Faith is essential, not the prayer. Almighty Allah always mentions faith.
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.
There should be people who make speeches related with faith, that would give a boost to the morale of the soldiers, people who would give discourses. The Department of Religious Affairs should undertake such a mission. They should be deterred from their suicidal thoughts through speeches that would give boost to their morale, that would bind them to life, through beautiful spiritual discourses that would make them love Allah, love Hereafter and the Qur'an.
Allah establishes a special connection with those who believe and do good and sincere deeds. He listens to their words and wishes, accepts their prayers. In the Qur'an, Allah says; "[He will] reward them for the best of what they did and give them more from His unbounded favor". For instance, if Allah gives them health, He then increases their health, if He gives them welfare, He increases their welfare, if He gives them properties, He increases that, if He gives them influence, He increases their influence, if He gives them power He increases their power.
When Darwinism is taught as a scientific fact instead of superstition in the text books, the existence of Allah would be rejected –May Allah forbid- thus faith would be annihilated. We look at the biology text books and see that there is nothing against Darwinism. That is not acceptable. The invalidity of Darwinism should be explained with scientific evidences.
It all is a matter of faith. If a person has a strong faith, he/she would be perfect. A person with weak faith would not be able to cope with many things. Consequently if you approach a person with weak faith with Sufism you would not attain any results. You should first reinforce their faith with the miracles in the Qur'an, with the facts leading to faith and then you can talk to them about whatever you like.
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.
The minds of unhappy people become damaged. Faithlessness leads to unhappiness, unhappiness leads to faithlessness. This is an interlocked system. Unhappiness attracts faithlessness. Actually Allah wants Muslims to be happy. Allah approves happiness. Bigots on the other hand constantly encourage crying
What a beautiful environment of trial Allah has created. Allah veils Himself to the people with weak faith, and opens and shows Himself even further to strong people. Faith then becomes precious, it becomes even more beautiful. That is because you find Him by searching, you give make effort to that end.
Profound faith is the greatest comfort in the world. Profound faith should be asked for from Allah. In weakness of faith a person goes to bed in pain and wakes up in pain. Such a person wakes up devastated. Even their dreams, their eating and drinking, their waking up are all troublesome and unsettling. May Allah forbid.
The greatest gift that could be given to a lady is to strengthen her faith and to strengthen her piety. For instance they say; “I have bought a golden bracelet to my spouse.” Yet if you strengthen her faith, it could not be compared with a million of golden bracelet. That is the extent of happiness they will thus attain. That is because she would not be relieved with golden bracelets. She could take the bracelet but her depression, her illness might still continue. But with sincere faith, her world would turn into Heaven. She knows that you will one day die and that she will someday die as well. But if you can give her a fervent faith, that would make her very happy, insha’Allah.
If heart is in distress, so would be the mind. They are connected with each other. May Allah give peace of faith to our hearts. Peace comes from faith. Some people might say; “I would feel relieved if I go outdoors.” Your satan will accompany you outdoors as well, so you would not feel refreshed or relieved. Some might say; “I would feel refreshed if I eat something.” Your satan would be eating with you. “Only in the remembrance of Allah can the heart find peace.” [Surat Ar-Rad; 28]
Our nation behaves with religion and lives with religion. Without religion there is no meaning to life. There is no meaning to living. Without religion why would we want to live anyway? What meaning would life have then? The only reason for living is religion, Hereafter, love for God. Without love of God, without belief in Hereafter there is no meaning to life.
If one does not focus on faith but on doing trade, on money and one’s own interests, it would bring about weakness in faith. Under those circumstances neither Islamic Union nor the appearance of Mahdi (pbuh), nor the descend of the Jesus Messiah (pbuh) would be important for such a person. If one does not focus on faith but on doing trade, on money and one’s own interests, it would bring about weakness in faith. Under those circumstances neither Islamic Union nor the appearance of Mahdi (pbuh), nor the descend of the Jesus Messiah (pbuh) would be important for such a person.
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.
The origin of happiness is faith. A person becomes happy with faith. Because he gives his thanks to God, he submits to God under any circumstances and looks for goodness in everything. In the spirit of unbelief, people look for bad things in everything. In the spirit of unbelief, people look for evil, dissension and commotion.
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.
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.
There is a rage in the hearts of some people towards people of faith. For instance, they behave perfectly respectful towards a profane person and speak in a very appraising fashion with them. But when they come across a Muslim they feel a strange, evil rage; that is an evil instinct one should seek refuge in God. But of course that is something in favor of a Muslim. It enables Muslims to attain good deeds every minute, every hour without doing anything.
Both for men and for women, being spiritually and physically strong is connected with their purity and faith. What happens when you cut off the water of a flower? It would be scorched and ruined under the sun. That is the same with women and men. When they lose their faith, when they lose their honor, they would be ruined.
Girls are like flowers. It is not possible for a young girl to remain healthy without faith. That is because humans are weak. They can only remain spiritually healthy with faith; once they lose their faith they become ill and many of them become inclined to commit suicide. They constantly have suicidal thoughts. They go and smoke cigarettes, drink alcohol and do whatever it takes to ruin themselves.
When a young girl lives her life with profound faith, love and radiance, when she is brought up with a healthy, sound and reasonable upbringing, she becomes very lively and very beautiful. But that is not what they do. They say, “what happens if I become faithless?” That kills them spiritually. And when they die spiritually, they die physically as well.
Troubles will rain down upon France in streams let me tell you that much. This scourge will engulf the whole of Europe. They are not listening to reason. God did not create this world as a place of fun. Belief in God is crucial. Loving God is crucial. That is the reason of existence for the universe. If you keep away from God, God would not give comfort to you.
Wealth that comes with faith and with love of God is very nice. Only then one becomes generous, only then one becomes friendly and spends his wealth on children, on people. One would then earn plenty but also spend plenty. Right now there is neither earning plenty nor spending plenty. There is poverty everywhere.
If a person is faithful, by the leave of God, he has nothing to be afraid of. If he says, "I exist." If he says, "Who created me?" and if he has the power for fearing God, God would not burn those people of faith. Let me state that much to make it understood. What kind of creatures are the people of Hell? They cannot understand those things. People of Hell are dead inside.
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.
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.
One worries about how he is going to wake up for the morning prayers, he troubles himself with it. Constantly whining, he says, "How am I to wake up that early?" Yet if you were to say, "We will give you five thousand liras in the morning without any provision", he would not sleep, he would not even blink until the morning. If you were to tell him that he should wash his face fifty times, and wash his arms fifty times and his feet fifty times and that he will be given five thousand liras every morning, millions of people would line up to do this. See that God promises eternal Heaven, yet he fails to do as God commands, because he does not believe in it: If he believed, he would have done that.
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.
There is no need to get into a direct conflict with their idols. If necessary, one might protect his faith appearing like he is siding with that idol. I mean if there is a danger, if the idol is about to crush him, if it is going to cost him his life, if it will prevent him from living by his religion, one might act as if he is siding with the idols. This is also defined in the Qur'an; one wouldn't be responsible from that.
Belief in angels, belief in destiny; these should be thought about one by one, pondered upon and settled in one's mind as perfect belief. I mean, a great majority of the public has such beliefs, but they remain as superficial information in their minds; however, settled knowledge could only be formed in devout Muslims. One needs to turn that into settled knowledge.
