We must trust in the mercy of God, He Who teaches compassion and affection
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9TV dated January 23th, 2014
(Viewer’s letter) “I am a 16-year-old atheist. It seems wrong for God to burn non-Muslims. It seems wrong to burn a Christian because he is from a different part of the world. If God knows the future, He will know that Christians will not be Muslims. If God does not intervene in that, it means that He will not punish everyone for their own free will. Or everyone will eventually be Muslims.”
Everyone will be a Muslim in the time of the Mahdi insha’Allah.
What you are discussing is part of secret knowledge [ilm al-ladun] from God. Do you know what that means? You are now watching me on television. How far away is the TV from you? You will say, “2 or 2.5 meters away.” But I am actually in your brain. Look, that is secret knowledge from the Presence of God. Where will you see hell? In your brain. All right, hell does exist on the outside, but you will see the hell in your brain. Paradise does exist on the outside, but you will see the paradise in your brain.
You cannot know who will go to hell or not. God is not obliged to burn people. “I will burn them,” He says, but He may not. God has no such obligation. You cannot say, “Why are you not burning someone?” May God forbid. He may make you think He is burning someone whereas He really is not. You imagine you will not burn, but you may go to hell, may God forbid. One imagines he is one of the saved, but he may go to hell.
You must trust in the mercy, affection and mind of God. Because it is He Who creates your compassion and logic. It is God Who makes you ask this question. You did not ask it. God asked it. But you are unaware of it. God makes you ask it, and God makes me answer it. These are secret knowledge from the Presence of God. You see people burning in a film, but they are really burning in your brain. How do you know that people will burn? Why should God have any obligation? But He keeps His word. God says “I will burn him.” Does he burn? Yes. But does he burn in the literal sense or not? You must leave that to God. That is secret knowledge from the Presence of God.
He promises paradise, and believers see paradise. Believers also see hell. They come to the very edge of hell. Everyone falls to his knees to feel the awe of God. Then believers are told, “Come here.” There is a light in front of them and to the right. They are in a vehicle. Like a small car. God says there are drivers by their sides. That is a very significant expression. Exactly the same as today’s cars. He says there is a light to the front of them and to the right. That happens with cars, doesn’t it? And he says there are drivers by their sides. They are very comfortable. He says they have a strong hope. This is something unique to the believer. No unbeliever can enter such a vehicle. Unbelievers are left on the ground. “They have much hope,” says God. When the gates of paradise open, believers enter. “Salam alaykum. You are welcome.” “Peace be upon you.” Then paradise is closed off again and that is it. You are there for all eternity.
But hell is necessary. If one does not see hell, one cannot properly appreciate paradise. That is why Almighty God put Hazrat Adam (pbuh) in paradise first. Look, it is quite explicit, and you can see secret knowledge from the Presence of God here. Then He says He will take him out of there. People normally remain in paradise for all time, don’t they? He says He will send him out because he has failed to abide by the rules of paradise. In other words, “You did not keep your promise.” There is a threat here, too.
The people of paradise live in it according to its rules and traditions. There is still the fear of God in paradise. They apply the manners they have learned. There is no rebellion. They are terrified because they know this world. They have seen hell and they know this world. They do not want to return to this world or to go to hell. That is why they kiss the ground in paradise. Because it is a very fine and comfortable place. Can one ever tire of it? That is impossible because they see hell, they can see it on a screen whenever they want. They do not like this world, either. “Shall We send you back,” He asks. “No, no, no,” they reply. Nobody wants to come back to this world again. The idea of returning to this world is a torment for people who have seen paradise. It would be like saying, “I am going to take you to hell.” No Muslim wants to come back to this world.
Ask if our viewer has understood what I have been saying.
There are degrees of secret knowledge from the Presence of God. If you want to learn more, that could harm your mind. This is enough for you.
It is God Who teaches us compassion. We do not know compassion. It is God Who teaches us the logic here. Our friend here is saying what God wants.
