While the Turkish-Islamic Unity is being established, Allah does not make it happen without giving martyrs. This was also the case for the Ottoman Empire. During its establishment, many martyrs were given. This has always been the case. Great incidents happened before very important occurrences, insha’Allah.
Martyrdom is something to rejoice in. It is an honor, a blessing; it is not something to mourn about. Only idolaters mourn about death. Only unbelievers cry for such things. In the Qur’an God says, “Let them laugh less and cry a lot.” And what do you say? You say, “Do not laugh!” God says that for idolaters. Muslims do laugh, and they only cry out of love for God.
Pardoning murder and those who shot our soldiers and police officers, making their pardoning a lawful, legitimate issue would come to mean encouraging murder. It would mean completely disregarding our martyred soldiers and police officers. That would mean the gravest insult for the families of martyrs. Those who do that would be the most despicable ones.
If someone steps up and – may God forbid- says, “The PKK should be forgiven.” The meaning of that would clearly be: “What they did was normal, it is normal to shoot soldiers and it is okay to shoot police officers, of course they should be martyred –may God forbid- well done to those who did that!” Such a person would be millions of times more wicked, millions of times more treacherous and more perfidious. The PKK would be “clean” when compared to those. Such a person would then be the wickedest, most treacherous person in the world.
General Amnesty is murder beyond murder. If a person has shot a soldier or a police officer, if he martyred our police and if the number of those martyred is above ten thousand, if he mutilated tens of thousands and if you provide the means to deem that lawful, it would mean that you are a million times more treacherous and more perfidious than the PKK.
God loves self-devotion, self sacrifice. That is why God loves martyrdom. This is one of the beauties God loves the most. God calls it "one of the two best things." God calls martyrdom and becoming disabled while striving on the Path of God as the two best things. That is one's losing his arm, his leg on the Path of God. God likes this very much.
The families of our martyrs should never be left alone. Their homes should be like prayer houses. They should be immaculate, sparking clean places in which God's Name is mentioned every day. Their visitors should clean the house for everyone. They should say, "Mother, let us clean the house for you." They should do the dishes if there is the need to do so, they should cook for them if they don't have food.
When the time comes and a Muslim becomes a martyr, that is what God loves the most; that is the highest form of love. That is because it means one gives his life for God. Isn't one's life precious? He says, "My Lord, You made me love my life, I love You more than my life. My life is Yours. I am Yours." This is what it means. That is why Almighty God keeps martyrs in a separate place and does not make them die. They do not taste death.
God wants to be loved at the cost of one's life. That is why God loves martyrs. That is because God is the One Who gives that life. That is exactly the characteristic of a lover. But when He is not loved, God takes revenge. He says, "I create horror and I do not fear the horror that takes place. Love Me and I will love you." That is such a beautiful offer, such a beautiful response.
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.
Let us please put aside the habit of crying at the funerals of martyrs. It is not in compliance with the Qur'an, it is not in compliance with our customs; there is no such habit in the morality of Islam. That is a custom observed since the ancient Sumerians. It is not appropriate to cry after those who have gone to Heaven.
