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.
If a person goes through the suffering of Hazrat Mahdi (as) only for a day, a person who does not act in compliance with the Qur’an, may Allah forbid, may deny Allah. Only one day. While it stirs up one’s love for Allah, it may make a person with weak faith lose his belief. That is the secret of the test.
You patiently endure difficulties and thus you show your love. If you do not endure difficulties, gratification would not be formed either. “I feel love but I do not endure difficulties,” that is not acceptable. Even in the story of Layla and Majnun they endure difficulties and that is that love appears nice to us. When one endures difficulties for the sake of Allah, when one endures pain, it would be beautiful. Or else everyone could feel love.
As the level of welfare increases, the number of those who patiently endure difficulties or those who endure pain decreases. Such an environment does not help the cultivation of art. Those who are brought up in poverty, those who endure pain and difficulties often perform art quite beautifully. God gives pain and ordeals for love to deepen. The more one endures difficulties, the more he knows love, the more he knows profundity.
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.
One doesn’t suffer in the path of God, he doesn’t suffer through ordeals or face any difficulty yet he says, “I am ready for Heaven.” You cannot go to Heaven. Do you know what you are? That means, may God forbid, you are a human being created in the form of a man with a beautiful appearance yet without soul. It is impossible for them to go to Heaven. These are created as a special intermediary form for this world.
A Muslim should definitely live suffering through ordeals and hardships. For instance one writes books and makes research for God while the other goes around having fun. But Muslims suffer through hardships. Then you look and see that he is very radiant and has become so beautiful. The other one says, “I am living my life in leisure,” but you see that he has become dull and blunt and has lost his meaning. Such a person cannot have fun. He imagines that he is having fun but he cannot.
A person who suffers through ordeals and who experiences hardships will become beautiful. He becomes even more beautiful as time passes and he becomes even younger. If the unbelievers live through the same things, they would collapse. But Muslims become even younger and even more beautiful with hardships. These have the exact opposite impact.
Some people say, “What if God did not create pain?” Well then you would be obtuse. Let us say that you have gone by the river in Heaven; you would simply look at it with vain eyes. But if you have suffered through ordeals, you would kiss each and every single one of the pebble stones in Heaven numerous times. Almighty God gives people a lengthy life and makes them experience these ordeals because it is crucial. After that people people return to normal.
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.
God tells us that there will be ordeals and pain in the world. Submit yourself to God as you should and see if you would suffer. God knows pain but He doesn't experience pain. People will know pain but they would not experience that pain if they submit themselves completely to God. One needs to find that secret, that secret of complete submission.
The more hardships suffered, the more the good deeds acquired would be. The difficulties Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) encounters are countless. Every single hardship encountered is a step ahead. For instance, think about a 1,000 kilometer-long ladder, 1,000 kilometers of ascending steps; one climbs up incessantly and the spiritual ranks he attains elevate incessantly.
The more our Prophet (pbuh) suffered ordeals, the more beautiful he became. Suffering turned the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) into the most beautiful person in the world; he led a life full of anguish yet he was exceptionally beautiful. The Prophet Moses (pbuh) suffered throughout his life but he was incredibly handsome, the most handsome man of his tribe.
