Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9 TV dated January 2nd, 2012
ADNAN OKTAR: One needs to love Allah very much. One must not only say, "I do love [Allah]" and leave it there, because for instance, a person feels love for his loved ones, but we look into the love that person feels for Allah and we see that this love seems to be lesser than his love for his loved ones, it is less. The fact is however it is Allah Who creates that loved ones. I mean, it is also Allah Who creates that love in his heart. One says, "I do love my father." It is Allah Who creates his father, his image and everything else and it is Allah Who creates that love in his heart. We ask him, "How much do you love Allah?" Less, lesser.. There is a tremendous collapse of conscience at this point. There is something weird, something strange here. Love as a whole must be for Allah. Allah is the One Who deserves all love. Allah is the One Who deserves all attention. One needs to give all his attention to Allah.
Ms. EBRU: What you've just said is very important, masha'Allah.
ADNAN OKTAR: Of course, all attention should be directed to Allah. If the world does that, the world would turn into Paradise. Because they are aloof with Allah, Allah also remains aloof with them. I simply express it this way so that you can understand it, Allah thus remains distant from them. That is why Allah does not grant any blessings and that is why people suffer so much pain. Throughout the world satan almost established a university, a school in an endeavor to prevent people love Allah. With the newspapers, radios, televisions under their control, they struggle not to make people love Allah, but when we dig deeper we see that this also is created by Allah. Of course.. It is very weird; we take a look at the time of Prophet Moses (pbuh); Allah first creates the Pharaoh and He creates disbelief in the Pharaoh. Allah says [to Prophet Moses (pbuh)], "The Pharaoh will object to every single thing you say. You will constantly work miracles, Pharaoh will reject all of them, he will object to every single one of them; he will accept none of them." This is how Allah created him. Allah says [to Moses (pbuh)], "And you will go and preach him." When we analyze it in the deeper sense, we encounter a very weird secret. For instance dajjal (anti-messiah) is created; Allah creates Darwin, Allah is the One Who creates darwinism, materialism. And it is also Allah Who creates Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) to demolish them. For instance had Almighty Allah willed so, He could have charged Prophet Jesus Messiah (pbuh) with this duty but He does not. He assigns Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) [to this duty], whereas he charges Prophet Jesus (pbuh) with politics, covert politics.
