Mr. Adnan Oktar Says

◉ God created the world only as a place of trial. Love and friendship are the most important topics that God attaches importance to. God wants love to prevail.

◉ The fact that there are too many loveless people is a typical aspect of the End Times; being surprised at this means not understanding the End Times. the inclination to lovelessness will persist until 2019's. Now, the dajjal's toxic effect is poisoning a majority of the people. They will only appreciate love after 2019.

◉ It is not surprising that people have a spiritual sicknesses in the End Times. Believers are responsible for treating those diseases and this can only accomplished by means of love and perseverance.

◉ Being loveless shortens one's lifespan since lovelessness destroys the body. the cells are impaired due to lovelessness.

◉ There is a lack of quality in love all over the world. Religious communities and groups are against one another; even cities are in opposition to each other. Such an inclination is not compliant with Islam.

◉ We are created for love; hatefulness and being quarrelsome are hideous. We, as believers in God, have to assign our souls to make other souls happy.

◉ First of all, we will become friends with our own soul, educate it and make our soul our friend. We will love our soul, and our soul will love us.

◉ Secondly, we will make other souls love us; we will explain to our soul that hatred and jealousy will not bring anything other than trouble.

◉ Hostility only harms us, and jealousy only leads to jealousy; however, forgiveness and love will let us win friends.

◉ The soul of every person seeks a friend and a loved one. What is a loving person like? They are forgiving, compassionate, wise, merciful, stable and modest.

◉ One loves the other through faith, if the other party makes any indication that he or she has no fear of God, the power of love is impaired.

◉ When morality is degraded, love ceases or it diminishes, but with good morality love flows like a powerful river.
