ALTHOUGH ALLAH DESERVES AN INFINITE LOVE, PEOPLE DON’T GIVE HIM ENOUGH LOVE. THEY DON’T APPRECIATE HIM VERY MUCH. That is why, Allah says, “They do not measure Allah with His true measure.” THE FACT IS, HOWEVER, ALLAH MUST BE LOVED WITH ZEAL. ALL THESE BEAUTIES BELONG TO HIM. All this passion must be diverted to Him. Almighty Allah deserves it.
We, on the other hand, say, “We love Allah most”. ALL LOVE BELONGS TO ALLAH, for Allah creates whatever we see. Besides, it is Allah Who makes us love, He inspires some kind of attraction between the two parties, which is very beautiful. A great blessing, masha’Allah. That is why it is very important to devote one’s whole love to Allah.
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.
Being in love with Allah is something and being in love with materials is another. Those in love with materials would come for materials; they would go for materials I mean they would turn to materials. Those in love with Allah, would feel love for the sake of Allah. When one loves for the sake of Allah, he would be happy both in this world and in the Hereafter.
Everyone can feel distressed at times. This is how it is in this World as a part of the trial. Drinking lukewarm water, not leaving the body dehydrated, not leaving one's self sleepless, moving a little. But the most important and above all else being in love with Allah, completely submitting to Allah and leaving one's self to Allah and knowing that reasons can never be a basis [ can be the cure for to overcome that distress.]
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.
Ignorance brings about communism. Ignorance brings about fascism. Ignorance brings about wild capitalism. A cultured, well-informed person would not get into those tracks. That is because once one sees information, he would be seeing Allah’s artistry. Once one sees the artistry of Allah, he would fall in love with Allah. One who falls in love with Allah would fear Allah and feel a profound love. Such a person would abide by the Qur’an. He would thus become the most perfect, best person on earth, insha’Allah.
Heaven will have a meaning for you when you are properly trained for it. You should be well trained so that you would fall in love and when you go to Heaven in love, it would have a meaning for you. You should learn to enjoy precious furniture, valuable goods, beautiful people, beautiful trees, beautiful perfumes, beautiful fruits here in this world so that you would be able to enjoy them there in the Heaven as the Manifestations of Allah.
Alevis are very dear and they are very devout people. First of all their souls are very open to love and arts. Think how enthusiastic the love of God would be in a person whose soul is open to arts and love. Because they love God fervently, they feel love for arts and they are in love with the Prophet (saas), they are in love with Hazrat Ali (ra). Alevis are the ornaments of Turkey, they are the ornaments of this world, they are such radiant people.
One can never be bored of love or affection; one can never be tired of the love of God. However the feeling of weariness, boredom exists in the human soul. Muslims are able to overcome this feeling with their faith. For that reason an ordinary man gets tired of his wife, from his beloved ones but a Muslim would not because of their faith. However in disbelief, weariness enwraps a person very easily. With the power of faith weariness is crashed. It can be crashed in proportion to that person's faith.
One needs to look and admire the rich details in God's creating. Then the love one feels for God would increase even further. When love increases so does the fear of God. When fear of God increases, so does your submission to God. When your submission to God increases, it would be as if your nerves are taken. Your mind would be at ease and you would be very much relieved. You would feel a sense of relief, a sense of contentment and ease insha'Allah.
Muslims should say; “Oh my Lord, give me an infinite love and an endless closeness.” There is no end to love. That is because this is a place of trial; it is a place of racing. God refers to those who are the foremost in the race. What does “being foremost in the race” mean? It means being foremost in piety, it means being resolute, it means striving in the path of God and attaining the love of God.
What is the characteristic of a lover? It is never deserting the loved one despite all sorts of sufferings and hardships. A lover would never leave his loved one even under the hardest conditions. God is showing us how much we are living with that spirit of a lover. That is because in the Hereafter, the existence and the manifestations of God will be the greatest pleasure we will be given.
How could a loving person be stingy? He would of course be very generous and distribute all he has in the path of God. When a person loves, he becomes crazy for the love of God. He would only have eyes for the love of God and he would say, "What else would I do with all these materials things?" He searches and becomes madly in love with the love of God.
If you completely abide by the Qur'an and love God as is due, if you submit your heart completely to God, if you turn into a man of love, if you burn with the love of God, God would bind and brace His manifestation on you; that manifestation would never leave you. God is the One Who takes that manifestation away from you. One might think that the manifestation leaves a person by them taking an individual decision but God is the One Who brings that blessing to you and He is the One Who takes that away from you.
