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.
If one concentrates well enough, deep faith would settle in him completely; it would be crystal clear in his mind. Those who can analyze and see this world well would be able to see Heaven well as well. Those who understand and grasp the system here very well, would understand Heaven very well as well.
God says that the majority of people will not believe and those who do not are not alive. He says that they are dead, not alive. If one takes unbelievers as the basis for his conduct, he would be abiding those who are not alive, he would be influenced by those who are dead. That would mean that he is influenced by those in the grave. That would be a colossal mistake. One should never take unbelievers as basis. One should have a direct and pure faith.
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.
All the riches escape with an immense speed from those who lack faith, from those who are weak in faith. The world constantly escapes from such people. They madly chase after worldly means and while they do so, a devastating pain settles in their souls. However, that is not what happens for a sincere Muslim. The worldly means and goods rain down on him. He escapes from goods and worldly goals but the world catches up with him and gushes over him.
God is the One Who gives love. That is created as a miracle. I mean God is the One Who creates passion. There is no love and no passion in disbelief and heresy. They strive for it but it doesn't happen. No matter what they do, they cannot attain love. They try to portray that in the movies, in books but they cannot attain that in practice. Why? Because it is a miracle that comes about with faith. It is a beauty that is formed between a faithful woman and a faithful man.
Some people imagine that they would be happy once they forget God, but that is never the case. In such a case, God bestows a thousand and one troubles upon them while they are unaware. God would constantly grip their souls and make them unable to enjoy anything. God would make their lives miserable without them sensing it. There is no such thing as being happy in forgetting God.
There is no one in the world who does not believe in the real sense of the word; that is how it is according to the Qur'an. All people, without fail, believe in their hearts but some hide their belief because of their lack of conscience. I mean they proclaim the opposite of their belief by oppressing their good conscience.
Those who become victorious in their struggle against the whisperings of satan are called faithful. The whisperings of satan would be incessant, Satan would constantly pester you. Bediuzzaman says, 'Even if the armies of doubt come at one's door, verified faith would resist, but imitated faith would be defeated.' That is why we are preparing books on the facts leading to faith and make them available for you. I mean, we do that for you to be able to resist against the armies of doubt. Muslims become heroes because of their resistance and they thus become valuable in the Sight of God.
What the TV channels should really lay stress on are the facts leading to faith. When the hodjas, religious scholars appear on TV they usually talk about things that have happened in the past. They are not at all concerned with whether or not those people have faith. Actually the greatest problem we have is the problem in people's faith in God.
With faith, you commit to Almighty God Who is the Owner of everything and you feel wondrously at ease. For Muslims, meteorites are wandering in the sky like lambs. But for an irreligious person they are horrifying monsters. For instance, the magma underneath us is like lukewarm milk for us. But it is like hell for an irreligious person, a sizzling hell that would burn them. Our hearts are at ease because we fear only God. We know how God would command it; we know that the magma is under the command of God. We know that every single atom in the magma is invoking the name of God and that it all submits to God.
For one who spent all his life as a Muslim, it would be the whispering of satan to be concerned saying something like, "Would I be able to preserve my faith at the moment of death?" There is no need to take that serious. No such thing would happen. I mean a wholehearted, subconscious faith is the basis. Or else something might happen to one's mind, such whisperings have no validity. God would look at one in all his integrity.
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.
Almighty God conceals Himself under covers. Those who can see beneath those covers are very rare; I mean those who are able to uncover, let us say, sixty of those may be seventy covers are very few. People of the heart uncover those covers and the more they do so, the more they become closer to Almighty God.
On account of their trust in God, Muslims are joyful in their lives. They are joyous when they are struggling for the sake of God or when they are martyred. They never lose their inner sense of happiness, joyfulness. However, those who are faint of faith becomes paralyzed; they feel at a loss, they panic, they cry and lead their lives in a state of unhappiness and fear.
Believers always think in favor of God and religion. Muslims cannot make an unfavorable analysis, but only favorable ones. They always assume the best [for God and believers]. But if a person is among disbelievers or is an atheist, he might think unfavorably about God and religion; however, after having faith in God, a believer cannot continue to do so. They should always give the benefit of the doubt and think positively.
History does not repeat itself. The system always progresses and gives rise to innovations; it undergoes a change in every cycle. When people try to repeat their past deeds through a romantic historical conception, it will only lead to their ruin, their defeat. We live in the era of science, knowledge, love and piety. Victory can only be achieved through love and piety. There is no other way.
People are adrift in a sea of habituation. In order to dispose of this affliction, they must get out of the sea of habituation and begin to use their reasoning and foresight. If they did so, they would have a tremendous faith when they realize the miracle hidden within a cell. Their faith would match those of the prophets. But people suffer from a lack of foresight.
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.
