Our Prophet (saas) says; "whoever of you lives to see him, let him crawl over snow to him and join him". What is meant here is; "Do not give up your service just because the weather is cold." "If you have sensed who Mahdi (pbuh) is, if you have wholeheartedly attached yourself to the Mahdi (pbuh), you should continue your activities." That is the meaning of it. Sometimes cold weather might cause people to retract. You should not make cold, winter or the snow an excuse, you should continue your service.
Jihad: "Jahd" means striving. These people, however, understand jihad as chopping people up. Instead of chopping up that person, would it not be better if you try to persuade that person, if you persuade that person with your ideas? When you chop that person up you would be annihilating that person, he would not have the opportunity to be a Muslim! Yet if you preach religion, if you tell them about God, they would come to believe.
One says, “I have lived a very happy life, I have never faced any troubles all my life.” That is not a gain. First of all he won’t go to Heaven. In the Qur’an God says; “Or did you suppose that you would enter the Garden without facing the same as those who came before you?” (Surat Al-Baqara, 214) A Muslim should strive on the path of God, face difficulties and make an effort against unbelief, against the hypocrites.
God regards martyrdom as the highest form of love. That is what God likes the most. But of course the most acceptable martyrdom is attained while one is actually striving on the path of God. That is because such a person goes to war openly knowing that it is possible that he will be killed and will be martyred there. Going on a struggle on the path of God, without feeling fear, is what is most acceptable.
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.
The Companions of our Prophet (saas) gave a struggle in the Path of God. But the hypocrites came up with many excuses saying 'their houses are exposed' or that they would have gone with them had they known how to give a struggle. However, if they were told that they would be given pouches full of gold if they went and struggled even though they didn't know how, they would have gone without hesitation. That is because it would have served their interests. Just like that, one's interests should be in showing good morality. One should replace gold, money with faith and good conscience. Otherwise one would become swinish.
Let us think that no one objects when we preach religion and that they accept everything we tell them, that everyone supports and applauds us and we've gone to the Hereafter, what would happen then? The good deeds attained would be one in a million. But if we meet opposition, if we strive in the path of God, you would be attaining millions of good deeds. God creates resistance specifically for Muslims to attain a lot of good deeds. It is presented to Muslims by God as a blessing.
