Fethullah Gulen's Views

Fethullah Gulen's Views

Turkish intellectuals and scholars acknowledge, either tacitly or explicitly, that he is one of the most serious and important thinkers and writers, and among the wisest activists of twentieth-century Turkey or even of the Muslim world.

The Broken Jug

The Broken Jug

Droplets of Wisdom from the Heart


The "Broken Jug" is a metaphor taken from the poetry of Rumi. It evokes the gifts of love and service which, originating in God's grace, gradually trickle out to others and ultimately back to God through the vessel of a humble faithful heart.

The Fountain

The Fountain

On Life, Knowledge, and Belief


The Fountain is a composition from which our inner calling echoes, a reflection of what is not always visible to the eye, or a response to the yearning deep in the heart and mind which sometimes finds its definition best expressed in a poem, and at other times in a journey into outer space or through the veins of the human body.

Gülen Movement

In every local circle in which I interviewed, members expressed their trust in how their donations were being used. Repeatedly, interviewees said they never worried how their money was being used because they know it is being well spent.

Education

In many parts of the world, the quality of education provided by Gulen schools is relatively high, especially in the field of physical sciences where high technology laboratories and computer rooms are provided. Perhaps shedding more light on the educational philosophy of Gulen is appropriate here. There has not been one particular ideology promoted within the Gulen educational philosophy.

Democracy

In Gulen's approach to Islam, there is no place for a political orga­nization. He is strongly against using services (Hizmet) as a means to gain worldly or political benefits. Gulen advocates understand­ing Islam as a religion with its basic precepts within the immutable framework.

Peacebuilding

More specifically, the following are some channels through which Hizmet instills, disseminates and popularises its core teachings among the wider Muslim public. Where the work is religious in nature, then Hizmet’s views and core teachings are popularised directly by way of its content. Where the content of the work is not religious, the core teachings are indirectly communicated through the example of the values that underpin that work.

Humanism

Humans, the greatest mirror of the names, attributes and deeds of God, are a shining mirror, a marvelous fruit of life, a source for the whole universe, a sea that appears to be a tiny drop, a sun formed as a humble seed, a great melody in spite of their insignificant physical positions, and the source for existence all contained within a small body. Humans carry a holy secret that makes them equal to the entire universe with all their wealth of character; a wealth that can be developed to excellence.
