Gulen echoes the great teacher Rumi by telling is not to ignore the doctrine of causes, not to sit around heedlessly waiting for God’s favor, but rather to continously exert ourselves in order to transform this broken world into a world of peace and justice, in accordance with the Will of God. He neither denies reality by turning his back on modernity, nor does he fall into bitterness, incomprehension and fury. His messeaage is essentially a message of peace and hope, a message that is best conveyed in The Statue of Our Souls.
