Love is a very engrossing, a very amazing feeling. It is not like eating or drinking. It is the most pleasing blessing. If one asks, "Would you prefer eating or love?" It is love. If one asks, " Would you like us to give you a yacht or love?" The answer is love. What good would come out of a yacht? It is just a huge wooden thing. Think about going aboard in the middle of the sea? What would you do if there is no love? What good would that do? Or else let us imagine that you are given a castle but there is no love in it; that castle would turn into a giant prison. It would do no good.
Leaving an artist to his own means during his difficulties is a lack of good conscience. First of all, an artist should not struggle to make a living. They should be provided a perfect life. The state has many means, so these means should be at their disposal so that they can comfortably perform their art. If you force them into a life struggling to make a living, how could they perform? How could they perform under these conditions?
Life turns into a nightmare if one remains aloof to religion, to Islam, to fear of God, to love of God. They do not say a single word about God. Just say "God" for once. Would they cause you any pain? Just say "God" for once - nothing would happen. They do not say it and the result is an inconceivable distress, an inconceivable tension. There is zero love. There is nothing in them to call love; love is extinct for them. They have no respect either; they have completely lost the feeling of respect.
Love is something that widens as one uses his mind. It develops in proportion to one's mind. For instance, you act loyally and the love you receive increases. You show compassion and the love you receive increases. You act patiently and the love you receive increases. You protect and watch over others, the love you receive increases. You think deeply and act considerate, the love you receive increases. You talk kindly and it increases; you refrain from telling lies and it increases. You constantly act honestly and it increases. You constantly approach others warmly with good intentions and it increases. One would detest the other if he sees anything contrary.
Love is the goal of the Paradise. Let us imagine that one goes to Paradise. Let us assume that there are rivers, fruit trees, mansions; there are vineyards and gardens, there are people, but there is no love. What would such a place be? May God forbid, that would be Hell. It will be Paradise only with love.
Loving God as is due is very important, it is the most important. One needs to give his attention to God, understand His Greatness well and love Him greatly. In the Qur'an, God says; "They do not measure God with His true measure." That shows it offends God. "I am giving you that much blessings, that much beauties, you are to appreciate Me." Yet people fail to do that.
Life is very difficult, that is how God created. If you put radicalism on top of this like a hump on the back, saying that one should not laugh, one should not go out to streets, one should not talk on the phone, it would ruin society; there would not be one happy person left. One would lose his sanity, one's mind would stop working and one would become unable to do anything, unable to produce anything and would ruin all his artistic capability. I mean it is not possible to attain anything with the traditionalist orthodox understanding of Islam. People would be ruined.
Lack of love and egoism drags people into fragmentation. Love on the other hand brings about integration. Would anyone want to be separated from his loved one? One would only want to be separated from those he doesn’t love. One would not want to see those he hates. All these fragmentations in the world stem from a lack of love.
Let us give longer ranged weapons with greater firepower to our soldiers. That would be a deterrent. It would have a very deterrent appearance as well. The Qur’an refers to the deterrent characteristic of weapons. God tells us to take precautions and prepare strong weapons so that we would have deterrent power against our enemies.
Let us bring positivity to the Gulen community. The only condition is to sever their connection with politics. They should remain above politics. They would then be very successful and everyone would love them. They have followed a wrong strategy there; they’ve gotten involved with politics and things got out of control.
Lack of respect brings about rage and nervous breakdown. One then starts looking for a place to attack with that hatred, to satisfy that hatred. That rage cannot be calmed down with mild acts. Such a person would look for ways to burn things down, kill, crack someone’s head open or to leave him a bloody mess. His nerves will be calmed a little bit only when one sees blood. It is the characteristic of the satan: satan is only satisfied with blood.
Love should be espoused with determination and perseverance. Advocating fighting and conflict appears to be easy and reasonable to some people and they assume that espousing love is difficult, meaningless and impossible. Actually, they thus leave behind the easiest and the most beautiful way of life and dive into the most evil, most difficult and the cruelest of all choices.
Love provides beauty in every aspect. For instance, if a song is sung with love, if it is played with love, it gives an insatiable pleasure. I mean when you do something with love, it yields perfect results. If one talks with love, it can be listened to with an amazing joy. If one looks at another with love, it gives an amazing joy. Even when you show love to a flower, that flower becomes so beautiful and so sweet.
Love is a joy, it is a blessing, it is a pleasure, it is happiness. Still there are some people who give up love. Hatred is very distressing, it is painful. One would feel unbearable pains in hatred. What is the sense in this? Handle everything with love. Why is it necessary for you to be in conflict, why is it necessary for you to get in a fight?
Let Turkey relish religion, let the whole country relish religion. Let the warmth and the protectiveness of religion envelop everywhere. Let us see the warmth of religion in the clubs, let us see the warmth of religion on the beaches, in the national assembly, everywhere. It would be great if that happens.
Let me give you a secret. God doesn’t say,” Those who have weapons, those who have power, those who have money and those who have political power will prevail in the world.” God doesn’t say ; ” Those who perform their prayers, those who fast will prevail in the world.” God says, “Those sincere servants of Mine will attain salvation and prevail in the world.” He only mentions the sincere ones.
Love is a requirement. If you attempt to attain something with egocentricity, the egocentricity you will be facing would suffocate you. If you step up cunningly, even more cunning ones would suffocate you. If you attempt to play tricks, the one you are facing would play ten times more tricks. Beauty cannot be attained with tricks, with rouses and with fraud; it can be attained with honesty, sincerity and love.
Let everyone speak out their opinions, let everyone criticize. Why is there the need for curses, for defamations? Curses burn out those who curse. They would have their hearts torn out. They would lose their happiness and joy. They would lose the radiant light in their faces. That would give them pain.
Love cannot be attained without the fear of God. Without the fear of God one would be egotistical and selfish. One might say "I love you a lot," but he would be selfish, egotistical and cannot be generous. How can someone like that love? The love is gone in that; you would thus be burning out that love. Fear of God ensures all basic requirements of love.
Love is the basic characteristic of man. Let us love people, let us love animals, let us love plants and before all else, let us love God. Let us love those God created. Let us feel compassion to those who do not share our faith. Let us be kind to them. That is how this world will be saved. There is no salvation other than that. Or else God will turn this world into a living Hell and He is doing that.
Leaving the police officers sleepless would be a grave mistake. Police can do their job, go to their homes and sleep while gendarmes step in. Why should our police officers sleep in the streets, there are hotels everywhere. Those hotels can be opened for our police officers, even civil houses can open their doors for them if necessary so that they can have their rest. Leaving the police officers tired and exhausted would be highly risky during new attacks.
Love is the only armour of the system of the Mahdi. That is how it is stated in the Torah, in the Qur’an and in the hadiths as well. The system of the Mahdi will not use guns. There will be no blood. Even a sleeper would not be awakened. Everything will be settled with love and affection. Mahdi is the one who stops the bloodshed.
Let us embrace our Christian brothers and sisters fervently with love. Our brothers should protect and watch over them everywhere. In the streets, in the malls, they should love and respect them everywhere. They should thus keep their bonds of neighborhood strong. Allah wants us to treat Christians compassionately. Allah wants us to treat the People of the Book compassionately; so we should treat Jews compassionately as well.
Let children love Allah, let them love the Qur’an. Let us protect them from the dissension of Darwinism, from the dissension of materialism, communism, from the dissension of godless and Bookless mentalities. With all our might, let us teach them the beauty of holy values and the beauty of the Qur’an. Let the hearts of those beautiful beings be filled with the love of Allah.
Loving heart is the sound heart. A heart full of hatred is a sick one. Hatred kills the whole body, it makes the whole body cancerous, it makes the whole World cancerous as well. Look first the bodies became cancerous and then the whole World became cancerous. The color of the World has been lost with the economic crisis , this and that The joy of the World is gone, the merriment of the World is gone.
Let us become members to every organization as Turkey. Let us love everyone. Let us become friends and companions to everyone. Let us have no enemies. Let us be friends with everyone. Let everything go very well, and go towards good, go towards the Truth. Let it take us to the Unity of Islam, Insha'Allah.
Lovelessness has stopped consciousness. When consciousness stops, so would economy. People have lost their enthusiasm, their excitement. They became strangers to each other. They do not have affection, they do not have friendship. When this is the case, pains, troubles and torments pervade in the World. The only thing that could be done against that, is to ask Allah for the appearance of the Prophet Jesus Messiah (pbuh), for the appearance of the Mahdi (pbuh).
Loving one's nation is one of the main principles of morality, it is very nice. One would love his family, his brothers and sisters and his people. However claiming superiority is something completely different. Of course a person would protect his nation. He would protect his family and feel love and compassion for them. But if one says; "My race is superior," "We are the most superior race," that would be a very abnormal movement.
Lack of quality and lovelessness is the greatest enemy of the Islamic world, it is their greatest opponent. Lack of quality and lovelessness gives way to bring about aggressive, terrorist spirited people full of hatred who want to kill and injure people and then may Allah forbid, ghettos will be formed in the neighborhoods. Ghettos of hatred will be formed. People of hatred will come about. That is very dangerous.
Lovelessness brings about lack of quality; lack of quality brings about lovelessness. Lovelessness progresses very rapidly in an environment of poor quality. Love and quality is nested in one another. We will strive for our brothers to be very high quality Muslims. We will strive for love to develop to the utmost.
LIGHT FLOWS FROM THE FACE OF A MUSLIM. A MUSLIM IS LIKE LIGHT. A person becomes beautiful with her attitude, self-care, quality and her style; she does not become beautiful with her flesh and bones…For instance she may have a hunched back, but light flows from her face; light comes out of her and you feel relief and joy with her; your heart finds contentment…For instance there are some sisters of ours; they do not like themselves and they become introverted; she simply can’t see the light inside her. The fact is however, IF SHE ACTS WITH THE LIGHT OF FAITH AND WISDOM, SHE BECOMES THE MOST BEAUTIFUL IN THE WORLD. She becomes the most beautiful in the world with her beauty, cleanness, self-care, quality and wisdom.
LET US SEEK REFUGE IN ALLAH FROM BLOODSHED. ALLAH DOES NOT WANT BLOODSHED. The ideal thing is for this world to be like Paradise. Blood and pus are features of Hell. Our Prophet (saas) was always reconciliatory. His only aim was to escape attackers and defend himself. MUSLIMS MUST AVOID CARNAGE. FITNA IS WORSE THAN MURDER.
Love is much stronger than violence, love is a thousand times greater than violence. And violence is something repulsive, it has the opposite effect on modern, civilized people. People are influenced by love, scientific accounts, suggestion, sincerity and beauty. All the prophets have preached the faith in that way. There is no compulsion in the faith.
