God grants believers a pleasant life even amid the worst circumstances
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9TV dated December 17th, 2015
ADNAN OKTAR: "Mr. Adnan Oktar, suffering in grave is a truth of faith. Those in disbelief may suffer in their grave until the Judgment Day. So, will Muslims go through this suffering in atonement for certain sins?" Emre Yaşar, İstanbul.
Let me give you an important secret that should be remembered for a lifetime; God would never put sincere, conscious believers in hell and put them through suffering. If believers make a sincere and resolute effort in the path of God, even if they are in a hellish environment, God will grant them and those they hold dear a heavenly life. This is a miracle; a tangible miracle. God grants them a heavenly life even in the middle of hell. This is a magnificent display of God's might. For example, Syria is a war zone, right? For the sincere and pious person in there, God grants a heavenly life. This is a miracle. For example, the Prophet Lot (pbuh) was in the middle of hell, yet God granted him a heavenly life. For example, the Prophet Abraham (pbuh) was in the middle of hell, yet God granted him a heavenly life. For example, the Messenger of God (saas) was in the middle of hell, yet God granted him a heavenly life. The more faith a believer has and the more he strives to serve Islam, the more comfortable and easier his life becomes. God imparts great many secrets in the Qur'an. But those who have a reserved, nonchalant and negligent view of the Qur'an cannot have a grasp of these secrets. "If you help Allah, He will help you," says God in the verse. This is a miracle; I seek refuge in God from satan, "The misguided cannot harm you as long as you are guided." This is a great, substantial miracle that people should ponder upon. This is as great a miracle as a rock splitting in two and a camel coming out of it. Look, God says, "The misguided cannot harm you as long as you are guided." Indeed they cannot do any harm. This is an immense, substantial miracle, a major phenomenon. "If you follow my path, I will grant you a wonderful life," says God. "I will grant you a wonderful life even if you are in the middle of hell," He says. This is indeed a great miracle. For example, the Prophet Moses (pbuh) was living in the Pharaoh's palace, but his life was heavenly even if his environment was hellish. Then, he moved to another country where he also lived a heavenly, serene life. After that, he returned to the desert where he and his people set up nice tents on the mountains of Jordan and lead pleasant lives. They would eat quill meat almost every day. Quill meat is of the lowest cholesterol value and it is quite delicious.
There no such thing as suffering in grave. Once believers die, they transit into another dimension. Once Muslims die, they are immediately made to realize that they are believers by virtue of the serene and peaceful feeling that overcomes them. Moreover, God would never torture His subjects, there is no such thing. Surely, God is above such thoughts. God is not unjust or oppressive. He is All-Wise, All-Merciful. We witness His painstaking, wise and perfect creation at every turn. Therefore, God would never have His subjects suffer.
