The principle that society necessarily brings of "calculating tomorrow's interests now" weakens the community structure. Thus, we should not progress too much on this path. Faith creates a strong basis on this subject, and Fethullah Hodja mentions its consolidating power. We can see a self-sacrifice, now quite rare, in those inspired by his ideas.
Consider the following points that Fethullah Hodja emphasizes: Knowledge is passed on in a civilization by clear expression and technical terminology. In other words, it is passed on as a general symbol cluster and a practical term. Those who see Islam more as a dogmatic whole do not see this functional characteristic of religion, nor do those who describe the phenomenon of religion in Turkey as a focal point of power.Prof. Serif Mardin, Comments on Ufuk Turu by Eyup Can, Istanbul, 1996
