Surat an-Nisa, 77 (Hypocrites are opposed to intellectual struggle)
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar’s live interview dated August 31, 2010
Do you not see those who were told: ‘Hold back from fighting but establish salat and pay alms? Then when fighting is prescribed for them, a group of them fear people as Allah should be feared, or even more than that. They say, ‘OUR LORD , WHY HAVE YOU PRESCRIBED FIGHTING FOR US? IF ONLY YOU WOULD GIVE US JUST A LITTLE MORE TIME!’ Say, ‘The enjoyment of the world is very brief. The Hereafter is better for those who have fear of Allah. You will not be wronged by so much as the smallest speck.’ (Surat an-Nisa’, 77)
Do you not see the main point that distinguishes the hypocrites? They are opposed to Islamic Union and jihad (the intellectual struggle). They do not want the deen of Allah to spread and rule the world. They pray and fast and everything. They even ask for more. For instance, if an animal is to be sacrificed they request further detail. But talk of Islamic Union offends them, and that is the problem they have.
