The things that most sharpen people are faith, sincerity and love. When these are missing, a person becomes sick and unbalanced. A person collapses physically and mentally. The world also collapses. And people. The world will go mad when love is removed from it. The world will collapse physically and mentally when faith, sincerity and love are taken away from it. Then it will be the Day of Reckoning, may Allah forbid. That is why Hazrat Mahdi (as) is bringing sincerity, love and faith to the world. Hazrat Mahdi (as) is the teacher of faith, love and sincerity. That is why Allah is putting back the Day of Reckoning. "Even if only one day remains, Allah will extend that day. He will send the Mahdi (as) from my Ahl al-Bayt and he will make the world prosperous” he [the Prophet Mohammad (saas)] says. He described it in great detail. Hazrat Mahdi (as) is an instrument in the halting of the Day of Reckoning.
(Reply to a question regarding our Prophet (saas) not looking women in the face)
That means that our Prophet (saas) never saw half of the Muslim community at that time. Almighty Allah says in one verse that “After that no other women are lawful for you nor may you exchange them for other wives, even though their beauty might be pleasing to you.” Allah says it is unlawful. Our brother may be saying that our Prophet (saas) saw them [women] behind their veils. There are verses saying that he saw them openly, that there were women he liked. How could our Prophet (saas) have liked any women if he did not see their faces? Is it possible for him not to have dealings with the Muslim community and not to have looked them in the face? Of course he looked at them. That means he also saw their beauty. How could our Prophet (saas) not see his Community? Why should he not look at their faces? Out of the question. Our Prophet (saas) often spoke to women.

The essential thing is to overcome that blockage in people’s hearts regarding the existence and oneness of Allah. The existence of Allah is completely evident and obvious. But there is an artistry created by Allah, because of which people cannot see. But since Allah will wish people to believe in the End Times, He will open up people’s hearts in the time of the Mahdi (as). And then people will come to believe in droves. Allah first sealed their hearts, so they could not believe. Then He will open up their hearts and they will believe. We will see that. You can see it. Astonishing things have happened. People can clearly see the reflection of this over the last 10 years.
It is vey important for people to observe themselves. Their own bodies and souls. For them to feel the soul within themselves. To feel the soul inside their brains, for them to personally see this world and its bright colors inside their brains. Because just telling them is not enough. They personally have to see and understand. Allah uses the most glorious colors inside our heads. There is no color in the world outside. But there are all possible colors inside our brains. There is also depth, three dimensions. Objects look as if they are really some distance away. Yet they are all inside us. They are also at a distance, that is a separate issue. But the matter at a distance from us on the outside is dark and black and invisible. Objects are colorless and transparent. For example, we talk together, but someone looking with a second eye will see only a silent world. In the absence of a soul, if a person has no soul, meaning if he has no perception, it will be as if he is watching a silent film of the world. People speak but there is no sound. It is the soul that hears sound.
We bring the dead to life and We record what they send ahead and what they leave behind. We have listed everything in a clear register. (Surah Ya Sin, 12)
In other words, Allah says He records everything that people do in their lives. He says He records it all as images and sounds, that He preserves it all. We cannot know, but we will see it all in the Hereafter. There may be a piece of crystal that holds all of a person’s characteristics and their whole lives. Allah says, “We bring the dead to life...” The resurrection of the dead is a most glorious thing. A blessing from Allah. Allah constantly creates people. But we regard that as unextraordinary as we are so used to it. We die every time we go to sleep. We die every evening. But we are resurrected every morning when we wake up. But we regard that as ordinary because we are so familiar with it. But if we told people they die and are resurrected every day they will be hugely taken aback. They may be reluctant to go to bed. But Allah says He will bring them back to life. A person believes he will wake up again and be resurrected. But if Allah so chooses that person will not wake up again. He may remain asleep and never wake up again.
