BEING A SCHOLAR AND BEING A GUIDE TO TRUTH ARE DIFFERENT ISSUES- Hon.Adnan Oktar
Honorable ADNAN OKTAR (Harun Yahiya) said in an interview:-
One can become a scholar but he would not possess the quality of being a Mahdi; being a Mahdi is something different.
Do you know what the most vital issue of people in the world is? What is their essential need?
Unbelievers, faithless, Muslims, all of them are in need of guidance. Guidance is the greatest luxury in the world; the greatest blessing. Once Allah grants guidance to a person, that person acquires all the worlds. He would thus be given the greatest luxury, the greatest blessing. A burden of a hundred thousand tons is removed from him. He would be wondrously relieved. The greatest need is profound faith. Having a passionate, fervent love of Allah, being madly in love and having a profound love for Him. And uncovering the secret of the trial of Allah, knowing that secret. The one who does not know the secret of the trial plumps down. Once Allah manifests Himself with His name al-Hadi, the secret of trial becomes resolved in that person. People say, "Tell it to me too." But it is not something that occurs by explanation. You will demand it. Allah will create it in your heart. Allah makes Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) instrumental for that.
