Faith needs to be strengthened constantly
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Interview on A9 TV dated November 29th, 2011
ADNAN OKTAR: Faith needs to be strengthened constantly. Faith needs to be maintained. Faith is like a flower. Faith is settled through indoctrination, attains strength by that. Through constant education, indoctrination, faith improves. The human mind is weak. Allah says this in the verse. Allah says; "Man is created as weak". Man is not that strong. I, of course, consider the Prophets and the holy guides free from this but in general people are weak in mind. Their will powers are weak as well. Man is physically weak too. Allah emphasizes this in the verse, Allah says – I seek refuge with Allah from the satan- "Man is created as weak." But through indoctrination mind settles, it becomes strong. Faith is strengthened through constant indoctrination, through facts leading to faith. It grows stronger by constantly reciting the verses [of the Qur'an]. It grows stronger with thought. The world of course has a structure that is very suitable for deceiving people. The man looks at the panel discussion on TV and sees people are constantly quarreling with each other, they are always in dispute. And he forgets about death instantly. He bases his thoughts on quarrels. He gets excited and starts to think that the life in this world is constant. In fact the life in this world passes by so quickly. My friends have shown me the pictures of some of their female old friends. Some of them were actually my students in the past. Allah Allah, they have become like old aunties, they have all grown old. That is amazing, they were young girls just yesterday, very recently when they were together with us they were all very young. But now they have all grown strangely old.
