GOD TELLS US MANY THINGS THROUGH SIGNS, AND WE MUST BE DETERMINED TO TRY TO UNDERSTAND THEM
This world is a place of testing. It would be wrong to look at the signs sent by Almighty God without trying to understand them. God tells us things about the whole world. He sometimes tells us things through signs. If we persist in not understanding, God will persist in telling us. We must understand every sign that God sends.
- God says this in one verse; "That is because God would never change a blessing He has conferred on a people until they had changed what was in themselves."
Yes. The whole world is shaking. But people are unwilling to understand what this means. People ignore what God is saying. The final stage of this will be the Day of Reckoning.
God wants to bring people closer to Him. He wants to make them return to Him and love Him. God wants us to concentrate on Him only. Yet people deliberately and determinedly turn their attention from God. That is wrong. People need to love God. They must remember Him and see His signs. Warnings are coming from God all the time. Special signs come to the whole world.
When God causes something to happen, we need to reflect on why it happened. No matter what. Nothing is created without a cause. For example, even the sound occurring now is being created with particular wisdom. Ignoring events will just create more of them. It is wrong to ignore them. We must immediately understand them and turn to God, repent and seek forgiveness, understand God’s meaning and do what He says. Any other course, may God forbid, means rebellion against Him. That will offend God.
God has brought all communities to heel by force, inflicting troubles and His wrath. You can see this is a method of God’s when you look at the Qur’an. People have always been brought to heel by trouble. God says that people are cruel and ignorant. And ungrateful. He says that many people are like that. So they do not mend their ways with advice. Only with trouble and disaster. That is why God turns people to Him by inflicting great and very severe disasters, sometimes affecting the whole world, sometimes just one region. Otherwise people will never mend their ways.
Let me open a few pages from the Qur’an. Surah Hud,
(Surah Hud, 121), “Say to those who don’t believe: ‘Do as you think best. That is what we are doing." What does this mean? Trouble will come. You are trying to make trouble for Muslims. But God will send you such troubles that there will be no comparison. “You will be destroyed,” God is saying.
(Surah Hud, 122), “And wait. We too are waiting." For what? For trouble. God brings people to heel through trouble.
(Surah Hud, 123), “The Unseen of the heavens and the earth belongs to God.” In other word, hidden learning belongs to God. “And the whole affair will be returned to Him.” Everything returns to Him. “So worship Him and put your trust in Him. Your Lord is not unaware of what you do.” God says He is aware of all.
“Do they feel secure that the all-enveloping punishment of God will not come upon them, or that the Last Hour will not come upon them all of a sudden when they least expect it?” (Surah Yusuf, 107) A great scourge. This means there will be wide-ranging scourges and troubles in the time of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). There will be great events, and the Reckoning will remain in abeyance as a threat. This means that the time of the system of the Mahdi will be very close to that of the Reckoning. The Reckoning will wait in abeyance as a deterrent. This indicates there will be great troubles and scourges in the time of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh).
“Say, "This is my way,’ the Qur’an. Islam. “I call to God with inner sight;” (Surah Yusuf, 108) I will preach. What is the numerological [abjad] value? 2004. Or 2032 with gemination. Great things will happen between 2004 and 2032. Look, “Say, "This is my way, I call to God with inner sight;” Look, I preach. With inner sight. Numerological value is 2004 without gemination or 2032 with. It refers to the time of the system of the Mahdi alone, and no other.
Look, Almighty God says of Surah Yusuf and other verses that there are signs here for those able to reflect. Almighty God says there is evidence.
- There was a 40-second earthquake in the Aegean sea today. It was felt over a large part of Turkey. It was felt in 40 cities, including Greece and Bulgaria.)
The earth will continue to be rocked like that until the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). There has been an increase in earthquakes of a kind never seen before. Our Prophet (pbuh) says, “There will be an increase in earthquakes, the like of which has never been seen before.” This is a portent of the appearance of the Mahdi (pbuh) and the coming of Jesus the Messiah. In the Gospels, Jesus the Messiah says that earthquakes are a sign of his coming. It will happen again and again. Until the coming of the Mahdi (pbuh). And on a frequent basis. With goodness and wisdom. The earth does not move of its own accord. What does our Prophet say? It will be rocked with earthquakes. How often? To an extent never seen before.
