"  On seeing the abundance (as a result) of my propagative work, people think that work is progressing, whereas work is one thing and abundance is another thing. Look, the abundance began to appear right from the time of the birth of the messenger of Allaah (peace be upon him), but the work started much later. Here, understand similarly. I tell you truly that the real work has not begun. The day the work will begin, muslims will return to the condition they were in, 700 years ago. And if the work does not begin and remains in the same condition in which it is now, and if the people deem it to be a movement like all other movements, and if those working in this path fail, then the tribulations (or trials) that would come in centuries, would come in a matter of months. So there is a need to understand this.  "
