In the Gülen Movement, where do rewards come from?

Fethullah Gülen

The rewards to be expected as a result of services provided are strictly from God. The Gülen Movement does not offer selective incentives (atomized cost–benefit calculations) to attract participants in the pursuit of collective goals. Direct participation in the services itself provides the motivation. Participants choose to embody highly cultural, ethical and spiritual values, rather than to accrue worldly goods and material gains. Fethullah Gülen is against the kind of rationalism that focuses on egoistic self interest and pure materialistic cost–benefit analysis.
