Opposition permits strengthening because if we and I had no opposition it would be almost impossible for me and my web sites to be known. Very difficult. It is impossible to become known through praise; but becoming known through opposition imparts a wonderful force. For example, if there is a headline saying, “Adnan Hodja’s terrible gaffe,” you wonder what it was. But if it says, “Adnan Hodja describes things very well,” that will not have the same impact. One will not be curious. But if you talk about a “terrible mistake,” that sets one wondering. Then both friends and enemies will visit and have a look at it as well as people who are completely uninvolved.
(In response to a viewer’s question, “Will the Mahdi receive revelation?”)
Revelation also comes to bees. It comes to people, but they will not be aware of it. Revelation comes to all Muslims. Conscience is in any case revelation from Allah, but one does not realize that it is revelation. Allah also sends revelation to bees. He will send revelation to the Mahdi, but the Mahdi will be unaware of it. He will send revelation to his heart, but he will not know it is revelation. This is revelation as with the prophets, but not through literally seeing Gabriel. It will come through working on the conscience, insha’Allah. An angel directs and assists. Gabriel and Michael assist to the right and left. But is one aware of that? One is not, insha’Allah.
My brothers should have a check-up at least once. Young or old, that is essential. They must have a general check-up. One never knows what may happen, so they must not eat whatever they find. They should have a cholesterol check and keep their cholesterol down. They must scrupulously do whatever the doctor tells them, insha’Allah.2012-03-04 16:09:45
