Different from the Torah and the Gospel, the Qur'an emphasizes love very thoroughly; provides the foundation for love
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Interview on A9 TV dated July 24th, 2011
ADNAN OKTAR: The original parts (of the Torah and the Gospel) are very much valid. I, for instance, am reading both the Gospel and the Torah. The expressions are exquisite and they give relief and contentment to the hearts. The Gospel always addresses love, beauties and brotherhood. The Torah addresses wisdom, sagacity and again love. The Qur'an is like that as well. But the Qur'an emphasizes the foundation of love very thoroughly. I mean different from the Torah and the Gospel, the Qur'an forms the basis of love and the basis of reason in the most perfect manner. That is because love does not form on its own. The Qur'an explains how love is born and all the systems in it with the finest details. For instance being truthful, being patient, refraining from hypocrisy, being brave and self-sacrificing. Once these attributes are attained, love is formed. I mean you if you brick up the palace, if you place the windows and the doors in it and if you put the furniture inside, the palace would thus be formed. Right? The Qur'an builds the palace of love. I mean there are a lot of details to it. It sets the human psychology perfectly. The Qur'an identifies the abnormal aspects of a person perfectly and there would be no space left for a person to escape. I mean those who engage in trickery cannot, those who engage in hypocrisy cannot escape.. The Qur'an locks the way from all sides. I mean this is the difference of the Qur'an from the Torah and the Gospel, from the corrupted Torah and the Gospel. For instance the Gospel directly talks about love but the Qur'an perfectly sets the whole foundation of love, the whole order and the method of love to the finest detail and puts it in front of us like a palace and then on love would be formed anyway. Since this is an important matter, it is beneficial to lay stress on it time and time again.
