How to achieve true love and passion?
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9TV dated January 12th, 2017
ADNAN OKTAR: I look at the girls on Facebook and Instagram and see that there are very beautiful girls among them. Everything about them is splendid; they dress splendid cloths, drive splendid cars, have splendid pets, and eat splendid food. They also have handsome boyfriends; I am referring to most of them, not all of them. But they lack one thing; love. That alone takes away all the beauty. It takes away the beauty of their cars, their houses, their physical beauty. They have boyfriends, yet their relationship is not based on love; it is only for appearances. They seem to love one another, but only in appearance. The system is rotten to the core. Sometimes, I watch TV series. The actors are very handsome. But their gazes are vacant nonetheless. I see that girls are making ardent effort in their pursuit of love, yet they fail to find someone they can love. Almost all girls suffer from this. They all are lonely. Their boyfriends all have muscular physiques boasting what people call six-packs. They have well-built biceps etc. They graduate from great schools, drive wonderful cars. But their souls lack that enthusiasm, profundity, passion and sincerity. The girls are quite intelligent, they realize these shortcomings and cannot manage a relationship with them. They really want to, but they cannot. Almost none of them can find true love. This is a grave disaster, a calamity from God. I see that there is a large group of people who are always lonely and unhappy. Guys really want loving relations as well. They want to have such relationships but they fail to have one, as it requires profound sincerity, and profound fear and love of God for this. God specified its requirements in the Qur'an; a profound love and fear of God. In its absence, the system collapses from the very beginning. There needs to be sincerity. But they are not sincere; every gesture of theirs is an act. The way they behave, the way they look, the way they walk are all an act; what they call "attitude" is in its highest level yet. We can elaborate this further, because this is a serious disaster.
